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)

When your mum thinks you're gay for your best friend (but you probably are)
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

why does moving up a class lower reputation? Are there ways to remove permanent reputation effects?

Social mobility in VE Britain was seen as a bad thing. While the US had "the American dream", those in the old world would actually have been uncomfortable with people striving to rise above their 'station'.

"One step" (WC -> MC or vice versa; MC -> UC or vice versa) changes only last a year; it's only when a character moves from UC -> WC or WC -> UC that the rep ding is permanent :) That said, even if there is nothing else wrong with you at all ever, you can still never be higher than a 9 again. Fortunately, 9 is still the higher end of "good"!

EDIT: Marriage-based mobility is a permanent ding because rather than moving around on your own successes, you're 'conning' your way into that class!
