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

WANTED:

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
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 Daily Prophet

What to Submit
The Daily Prophet is wizarding Britain's most popular news source. Staff and Gossipmongering Hags will use it to cover boardwide events, and members are encouraged to submit articles as well!

Articles that are sent to the DP should be newsworthy: spectacular or unusual, involving prominent citizens, or effecting a wide range of characters. If it's weird, scandalous or there are dead people, it's probably newsworthy!

Examples of what to submit: high society engagements, event coverage, extraordinary crime, high society birth announcements, and sudden deaths. If you want something covered but you don't want to write it yourself, please contact @'Beanie' at least one week in advance.

You may namedrop other characters as long as the information is based in fact or you have their player's consent; you may also co-write articles with other members. The DP also covers IC scandalous events: if you find a thread that you think is scandalous, let a member of staff know!

DP Sections & Reporters
BREAKING NEWS: Olla Mirage - The Daily Prophet's top reporter, Olla only covers front-page news that is likely to impact all of wizarding society. Olla Mirage is reserved for staff use.
CRIME & POLITICS: Ian Pengloss - Ian Pengloss' section covers everyday crime and politics, and is committed to investigative reporting. He often claims that Mirage snipes his big stories at the last minute.
SOCIAL & GOSSIP: Fidelia Spiller - Spiller, an incredibly nosy reporter, covers scandal, engagements, births and deaths, as well as societal event coverage.
SPORTS: Mitch Quiddel - Mitch Quiddel, a bit of a misogynist and sponsor of the Hogsmeade Howlers, covers all things sports - mostly Quidditch.
ADVICE: Mabel Knott - Mabel Knott answers letters from the readers; you can submit your letter to the DP for a Hag-written response.
