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

Miss Imogen Fox
Full Name: Imogen Fox
Birthdate: May 1st, 1873
Current Age: 16
Occupation: Housemaid for Hire
Reputation: 9
She has no real employment history and is very vague about her background. It's not at all suspicious, but it's still a bit odd.

Residence: A rooming house in the Hogsmeade slums.
Hogwarts House:
Wand: Dogwood, ten inches precisely, with a veela hair core. Swishy. This is a third- or fourth-hand wand, so it's not good for a whole lot, really.
Blood Status: Halfblood
Social Class: Working Class
Family: A mother and father and a younger brother. Perfectly ordinary.
At a flat five feet with mousy brown hair and dark eyes, Imogen Fox has always blended easily into the background. Right-handed, she dresses neatly and practically, and is a deft hand at repairing tears and scuffs in clothing and leather.
Imogen Fox was born in a small village in the north of England to her parents, their first child. The only noteworthy event of her upbringing was the birth of her brother—due to financing woes, she was unable to attend Hogwarts.

Fortunately for Imogen, the family's circumstances changed over time, allowing her to begin studying at the Blishwick School of Domestic Magic in 1886. She was not overly keen to leave home—her first time ever doing so!—but knew it to be a necessary evil in order to make something more of her life than marrying the butcher's boy and popping out half a dozen fat children.

Her off days during the training program were spent as a laundress in Pennyworth—not exactly a position befitting of her education, but with no references and no connections, it would have to do. Besides, Imogen found the work suited her, as it kept her busy without forcing her to be oversocial.

At last, in 1888, with a certificate of qualification in hand, Imogen has ventured out into the world at large, ready to find employment and happiness on the road ahead (probably in that order).
