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

An Inauspicious Turn
May 4th, 1889 — Lestrange Estate, Library

Belphoebe Lestrange was the wife he had chosen for himself, not had assigned to him, the wife he bore genuine affection. He saw her as nearly his equal in most ways, and Lucius though he knew her intimately indeed. Still, he was not arrogant enough to know how she felt about this particular turn of events, nor was he masochistic enough to probe for an answer to that question. Besides, why should he concern himself with his wife's feelings when he was not even certain of his own?

It had been a hard thirty-six hours. Lucius was not so foolish that he had needed a midwife to tell him that. He had never doubted, however, that his wife's toils would bear strong and healthy fruit.

He was not accustomed to being wrong.

He made his way as usual down the stairs and along the corridor, entering the library where so many familial conversations seemed to take place. Dutifully, his middle son awaited him there—what a joke of fate, the wizard thought, that the boy should have grown up so foolish and yet healthy, in spite of everything!

"A boy," he answered Cassius' questioning look dispassionately. "Stillborn."
