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 ( Submit your own)

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.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

Urquart Returns to Ministry
Former Minister Now Chief Unspeakable

After more than a year seemingly evading the public eye, a release from the Minsitry of Magic has revealed that Balthazar Urquart, formerly the Minister of Magic himself, will be returning to magical government, heading up the Department of Mysteries. He will reportedly officially take the office on Monday, though has been spotted on Ministry premises by several keen-eyed individuals this week.

As Minister of Magic from 1884 to 1887, Mr. Urquart instigated a number of modest reforms as he toed the line between his progressive leanings and the predominantly traditionalist Wizengamot. Known to be on friendly terms with his successor, many have wondered since Minister Ross’ appointment if Urquart would be granted a position (those individuals may now be feeling rather vindicated).

Mr. Urquart himself was not available for comment on the news, and it seems safe to speculate that his return to the Department of Mysteries (where he served as Assistant Head from 1876 until his election) will do little to loosen his tongue.
