    This is a staff run, member-submitted thread that will post anonymous rumors. These may or may not be true and members are welcome to submit their own, but they must have to do with their own characters or include the permission of the character's player. If a character is breaking propriety in public, a rumor will be written by the GHag staff and posted here. Want to submit a thread? Check this out or PM this account!

    If you want a rumor posted, PM this account with your rumor. Rumors are presumed to have begun being spread the same day that they are posted.

    For the rumors before 6/30/1887, check out this thread.

    "Miss Ysabella Allegri stumbled off of a bar stool at the Esterwick party on the 20th - I don't suppose anyone can be surprised by her state, she is Italian after all..."

    "Priam Lestrange was seen laying on the grass in the park. Supposedly he was 'meditating' and he had one of his late brother's daughters along. Those poor Lestrange girls really ought to have a better role model than him!"

    "I was in the post office Saturday – poor Bronte isn't strong enough to carry that quilt I made for my niece so I had a nice screech owl take it instead, what a surprise that'll be for her! – anyhow, I was attaching this parcel when would you believe it, a woman in a wedding dress walked in, veil and all! I happened to catch a glimpse of her face and I'm certain it was Miss Lovegood! Or should that be Mrs. Urquart now? Strange place to come after your wedding, don't the Lovegoods have an owl? I wonder who she was writing to, it must have been awful urgent to interrupt her wedding celebrations."

    "I saw Miss Lovegood—Mrs. Urquart?—leave her brother’s home early in the morning, as if she’s slept there. Has there been no formal wedding announcement yet? I thought she was to be married on Saturday, but this smells fishy!"

    "My third cousin's co-worker was at the Minister's wedding and says the Minister jilted Miss Lovegood and then announced that he had reason to believe she was a secret half-veela! Or did he say she was part hag? You know, I can't quite remember... I see why he had that marriage ban put in place, that was a close one!"

    "I saw the Mohr girl - the half veela one - at so many balls this season and she's not out yet! Then again, what can you expect when her mother is a veela?"

    "You won’t believe who I saw getting ushered into the Hogsmeade Hospital the other day - it was August Lynch! You know, that Quidditch player that went missing almost two years ago? I could barely even recognize him he looked so horrible! I wonder what could have happened to him?"
