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

1st May, 1889 — Hawthorne Hollow, Beltane Bonfire
Lucky this didn't so much count as a party, or Conall wouldn't have bothered coming. As it was, the Beltane celebrations were a pleasant harkening back to his childhood in Ireland, and the fact that they were out in the Hollow, a little removed from Irvingly's innermost order, meant he at least did not feel entirely out of his element.

A drink or three had helped that well enough, as well: whether from the alcohol or the heat of the bonfires blazing nearby (or perhaps both combined), Conall's face had gained a healthy flush, and he found himself in a hardy good humour.

He had been loitering by the brush around one of the bonfires when he spotted one. A fire salamander darted in and out of sight amongst the kindling and the flames. A corner of his mouth twitched upwards.

"Well, aren't you a beauty?" Conall remarked, with feeling. As he glanced upwards again, however, he found that his effusions had apparently found themselves an unintended recipient, in person rather than salamander form. A person standing before him in perfect earshot - and staring, now.
