Did You Know?
Queen Victoria was known for putting jackets and dresses on her pups, causing clothing for dogs to become so popular that fashion houses for just dog clothes started popping up all over Paris. — Fox
It would be easy to assume that Evangeline came to the Lady Morgana only to pick fights. That wasn't true at all. They also had very good biscuits.

Ivy smiled at him again, and took another large sip of her beer. "I'm an auror and I live alone, my parents are muggles," she said, "So my reputation's already - a bit dodgy. This won't hurt it." It was a little circular of her, to go back to it — but sometimes she felt like Jack deserved better explanations than whatever she was willing to offer.

He gave a well-you-have-a-point sort of tilt of his head.  It sure sounded like a list of things some stiff-neck might hold against her.  He didn't, of course.

"Did I know your parents were muggles?"

Ivy shook her head. "Most people don't," she said, "I don't — advertise it." She looked at Jack, her eyebrows quirked — she usually didn't tell people because of purism. She didn't think Jack would be that way, as he was a halfblood, but sometimes people surprised her.

"I'll tell you something most people don't know about me." A trade seemed fitting.  "Jack's not my given name."

Ivy laughed; it wasn't a frequent sound from her, but it seemed to happen more around Dorset. "Oh?" she said, "What is it?"

"I got it from my dad."  He admitted with an amused shake of his head.  "I thought his name was Jack and when I went to Hogwarts I just... made it my name too."  He'd be the first to admit it was a funny thing to suddenly decide to do as a kid... if he ever talked about it. 

"Sure, the professors the professors had me down as something different at first but I had 'em all convinced by the end of my first year."  That part he was proud of and the grin that followed showed it.

Ivy couldn't help it; she laughed, holding her beer up and grinning at him. It took her nearly half a minute to get her laughs back under control. She raised the beer at him. "That's good," she said, genuinely cheerful — not a common emotion for her, but one that Dorset brought out more than most people. "Thank you, Dorset."

He raised his own beer in salute to hers. He'd never heard her laugh like that and before that night he might've thought it wasn't possible but soon enough he was laughing along with her.

"Happy to help."
