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

Naeva is a proper, composed, and well-spoken young woman.
Residence: Hogsmeade
Hogwarts House: Slytherin
Wand: Ash, 11", hard, Doxy wing
Blood Status: Pure
Social Class: Upper
Father: Durant Basem Lécuyer (b. 1831)
Mother: Colette Lécuyer née Bélanger (1843-1877)
Sister: Odette Samia Colette Lécuyer (b. 1868)
Sister: Mireille Imane Colette Lécuyer(b. 1868)
Brother: Mercer Basem Lécuyer (b. 1877; died hours after birth)

Pet: Margaux
Appearance: Standing five feet, two inches tall with deep brown hair typically in fine braids and dark eyes, Naeva is every bit her mother's daughter, down to the arch of her brow and the curve of her chin. Typically dressed in elegant robes, though the occasional muggle dress permeates her wardrobe, Naeva is narrow-framed and left-preferentially ambidextrous.
1869: Naeva is born, the third daughter and first single birth to Colette and Durant.
1874: In the dead of winter, during a particularly terrible snowstorm at Colette’s mother’s home, Naeva sparks a fire in the nursery. Thankfully, Colette is in time to extinguish the flames before it turns into a disaster.
1875: When Odette displays her first signs of magic in the form of an animated paper rabbit, Naeva plays with the rabbit before it disappears.
1877: Mama’s attacked on the streets of London while walking with one of her friends by a mob of Muggles, after they spy her wand and make assumptions. As a result, she goes into labor, months early. She dies shortly after labor, as does the too-small son she birthed, at the family home, after calling for Durant to be brought to her side. She expresses her final wish to Durant - that her daughters receive a full education, something she never had. The nurse who had assisted in the labor was never seen again.
1880: Odette and Mireille go off to Hogwarts, leaving Naeva alone at home with Papa and the nanny. Naeva is highly displeased by this development.
1881: During the summer, Naeva, Odette, and Mireille approach their father, asking permission to include Mama’s name in their own names as a second middle name. He is proud and honored that his daughters wish to honor their mother’s memory in such a special fashion, and he permits the alteration, though it is not a legal change. It is one they all typically use when introducing themselves, though. Come September, she begins Hogwarts; the Hat spends nearly three minutes debating between placing Naeva in Hufflepuff and Slytherin. Ultimately, however, Naeva asks to join her sisters in the House of the Serpent.
1883: Mid-summer, Aunt Manon is publicly disowned and never seen again. Naeva has no clue why, and kind of liked Manon. When she attempts to ask why Aunt Manon was disowned, her father’s icy reaction is all the information she needs to know not to ask again.
1885: Odette and Mireille sit for their OWLs. At Christmas, Naeva is gifted a kitten by one of her maternal aunts, whom she promptly names Margaux.
1886: Naeva sits for her own OWLs. Her grades are as follows:
Defence Against the Dark ArtsE
Ghoul StudiesP
History of MagicP

1888: Naeva is eagerly heading into her NEWTs for Astronomy, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Divination, Potions, and Transfiguration as graded courses, with Art as her chosen elective. She anticipates entering the Pendergast School for Young Roses at the end of the school year.
Dedicated, strong-willed, honest, loyal, organized, inflexible, stubborn, judgmental, and high-strung

Naeva could quite easily be described as spoiled: she thinks she is owed the respect her father had worked so hard to earn, and that the delights of her class are things she deserves. Dedicated to her father, sisters, and the preservation of her mother's memory as she is, Naeva is, quite unfortunately, the very antithesis of her mother's desires. She seeks power, more than her sisters seem to, and will do whatever she needs to in order to have it. However, she does not exactly deny that power is what she seeks. She wants to improve her own station as best as possible, and will admit this to whomever makes an inquiry.

Naeva does not like chaos, and judges others based on their blood and legacy over their own actions and skills. She sees the world like a pyramid - and she wants to be at the top, no matter who she has to walk over to get there.
