Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

Full Name: Lilly
Nicknames: Lilly
Birthdate: December 25, 1860
Current Age: 47 years
Race: House-Elf
Occupation: kitchen worker
Reputation: 7 -3 for being a house elf but she’s too sweet to be disrespectful
Residence: Hogwarts
Social Class: working
Family: she doesn’t remember
Appearance: Being such a young house-elf in terms of those serving at Hogwarts, Lilly has much firmer features than some others at the castle. Her shoulders are a lot straighter and her back is not as hunched over. If house-elves were to ever have hair, Lilly would have a luxurious head of hair that she would do her best to maintain. But, alas, house-elves are hairless. Lilly struggles to make use of her youthful appearance in other ways, stealing an elaborate turban from her prior mistress and using it as a sarong. Her young mistress thought she was just “so cute” that she allowed Lilly to keep it, thereby freeing Lilly from indentured servitude. She was so distressed that her mistress’s father secured her a position at Hogwarts.
History: Born a mere 47 years ago, Lilly is considered to be a young elf. She was given to her prior mistress as a young elf and served with her for almost 45 years. Lilly was raised by her mistress, given almost anything she could want for. As such, Lilly was considered spoiled by the other house-elves in the home. She was treated with derision by everyone else.

It was about a month ago when Lilly stole a turban from her beloved mistress’s daughter and used it as a sarong to cover the stained tea towel she had been wearing for as long as Lilly could remember. Instead of whipping Lilly like her mistress’s father told her she should, Lilly’s mistress laughed and told Lilly she should keep it because she looked “adorable in it.”

Mistress’s grandfather cursed loudly at that. Lilly didn’t even immediately know what was going on. It wasn’t until Mistress’s father told them that Lilly was now a free elf and couldn’t stay there. It wouldn’t do to have a free elf working at their house because of how it would look for their reputation. When Lilly finally understood this, she began to bang her head on the ground. A lot. Mistress started crying and it took several hours for mistress’s father to calm them both down with the promise that he’d take care of Lilly and give her to the staff at Hogwarts. Technically mistress’s daughter went there and if Lilly wanted to see her she could but that would be frowned upon by the headmaster. And since the headmaster would be her new master, Lilly couldn’t disobey him.

So now here Lilly is, just starting at Hogwarts and doing her best to avoid being noticed with her brightly colored sarong that mistress said she had to keep because it would be the last thing she would ever see her in.
