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)

The Matchmaking Menace
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

I Want You To Be Happier {NEWT DADA}
MEMORY: A vacation back when she was ten, the summer before her oldest siblings had gone to Hogwarts. Back when everything had been peaceful and the siblings were actually acting like siblings.
AND… 5
It couldn't be the right one. That had to be it. But what could be? It took her a moment. She looked to Mr. Quirrell when instructed, but not for long. She was sure that she had been that determined when she had cast the spell. Could she be wrong? It couldn't be. She closed her eyes as she thought of her life. The good, and the bad, it was all jumbled together and yet separate. She thought of her sisters, her parents, and even her brother.

Past the more recent years. Back to when she was little. It had all been simpler. A simple little visit to one of their vacation homes. She had been ten. It had been peaceful. Pleasant. Mother and father laughing at the antics of her and her siblings. Even Handsome was having a wonderful time. Laughter and giggling filled the warm summer air. What was completely going on wasn't quite clear, but the emotions were. She took that feeling in. She breathed deeply. 'Live the feeling', she thought to herself. "Expecto Patronum!"

Sweetie prefers to go by the more proper name of Rachel, and your character may know this.

Checking his stance, he took a moment to center himself. Concentrate. Determination was key, as the professor had mentioned. So he focused on the memory, the emotion, and said, "Expecto Patronum!"

MEMORY: Singing with her sister while their mother plays piano.
AND… 2
FORM: Random
It took her a bit of time to figure out what her memory would be. She observed her fellow classmate's stances, paying particular attention to what the professor said. Then she finally thought of a nice memory to go off of. She concentrated on the music that was played, the happiness that she had felt, and then... "Expecto Patronum!"

James looked over at Quirrell as the professor singled him out and gave him some house points. Okay, he could do that. He focused really hard as he tried the spell once more. "Expecto patronum." Surely, he could do this.

Rupert barely managed to resist rolling his eyes as his dormmate managed a wisp and got singled out by the professor as having done well. Of course that nerd would manage it. What happy memory could that book urchin possibly have anyway? Concentrating on his own thing, or at least trying to, Rupert tried again. "Expecto patronum."

Ignatius was pleased to have managed a wisp and even more so, to earn points for it. He was then hyperaware of Miss Ruskins gaze on him but he tried not to be thrown off course. Continuing along as he had been doing before, Ignatius tried the spell again. "Expecto patronum."

“I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”
Somersby hadn't had much luck last year with this spell either. He had practiced it since but it seemed fruitless. Silently he cast about for another memory, steeled himself, and cast the spell again.

MEMORY: When his father brought home the first creatures for the menagerie and Somersby got to help care for them

It seemed as though Quirrell's initial success was the bridge that led his classmates to their own private victory, as both Bingham and Miss Whitledge proved, after some attempts, capable of producing a wisp of silver. Nikolai said nothing, but continued to observe his pupils' efforts.

James was getting a little frustrated. A couple of others had at least managed wisps while he was still getting bupkis. Trying his best to improve his stance and trying to focus (it was just so hard considering the amount of pretty girls in the room), he tried again. "Expecto patronum."

Perhaps he wasn't remembering that day well enough, Somersby thought. He cast his mind back to that day, but felt the shadow of his father's death lingering as he said the words of the spell aloud in another attempt.
Rupert was pleased with himself for also managing to produce a wisp. Bolstered with confidence, he tried the spell again. "Expecto patronum."

Ignatius continued with how he had been doing so far. It seemed to work for him. He just needed to focus. Clear his mind. Taking a breath and exhaling it, he cast the spell once more.

“I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”
MEMORY: His mother returning unharmed the Irvingly fog expedition. (4)

Eldin sighed, already able to tell that the memory of a broomstick would never work, It wasn't nearly strong enough; even flying on quidditch pitch with the Slytherin team would have been stronger in terms of pure glee, but he knew that wouldn't work either. Instead, he chose to focus on something more... recent. Something that, at the time, had even made him tear up — not that he'd ever admit it to anyone — with happiness: his mother's safe return after nearly a month away during the Irvingly expedition.

"Expecto patronum," he managed after a minute of concentration, eyes squeezed shut as the memory flooded his mind.

this MJ set was blessed by the heavens above
