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

The Reckless And The Brave
1st March, 1889 — The Connolly House
@Finnian Byrne @Edric Umbridge
For the only Connolly that actually had left the family house (besides Desmond Byrne, whom no one had ever really counted as a Connolly in the first place), Lorcan Byrne did spend rather a lot of time lurking about the place. He hadn't intended to tonight, but he and Finnian had spent a little too long in one of the local pubs down the way, and out of nowhere, disconcertingly, Lorcan had found himself too squiffed to survive apparating back to London. Not that Finnian was much better. Pissed as newts, the pair of them.

So they had ambled on back to the family house, and managed - miraculously - to make it inside and up the darkened stairs in one piece. How quiet they had been in this endeavour, Lorcan couldn't say, but he deemed it a success anyway.

"Shame Maeve isn't shackled to Skeeter any more," Lorcan said, daring to raise his voice from a whisper once they'd reached the door to Finnian's room. He was a touch wistful about Maeve's annulment. For more reasons than one, really, although primary among those were the hilarity, and the potential for even more hilarity by making both the unhappy couple's lives more miserable than they already were. Not to mention - "I suppose that makes me the most scandalous cousin again." Lorcan declared with a roll of his eyes, (though not, admittedly, without a hint of pride).

Most scandalous, biggest disappointment in the Connolly family - he preferred to think of it in different superlatives. Why not most memorable? Most daring? (Coolest?) Poor old Finnian might have stood a chance, if he hadn't always been too tempted by tradition.
