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.

"Like this, then?" she asked, a bit more sharply than was strictly polite, as she made a grand show of correcting her wand position.

Examinations were on the horizon. While Philippa Rowle was confident she would do well in her written tests, she had been dreading any sort of practical testing for the better part of a month. And who could blame her? She had, after all, been notoriously bad at wandwork all year. Indeed, the Gryffindor often pretended she was above casting in class, in front of others; anything to hide the fact that in truth, Pippa was embarrassed.

That was why they were here, in a classroom, rather than at the organized study event. An older student, one generally successful at [transfig, charms, or DADA; dealer's choice!] had been enlisted for a bit of pre-examination tuteledge, and at first, Pippa had genuinely been grateful, wanted to get the most out of the chance for improvement.

But as even the handling of her wand was critiqued, she found herself still embarrassed, decidedly frustrated, and vaguely resentful towards the brave soul with whom she had spent the last half hour.

Why was this so difficult?!

Emma watched Philippa's frustrated attempts at wandwork, wincing as the spell went ary. Philippa's discomfort was clear to see, her nerves reflecting in the tension of her shoulders.

"Let's try it again," Emma said gently, her voice a counterpoint to Philippa's sharpness. "But this time, try to relax your grip on the wand a bit. You're holding it like you're trying to wrestle a Hungarian Horntail!" With a small smile, Emma demonstrated the proper wand grip, her movements fluid and precise. "Like this!" she offered the wand to Philippa.

"Remember, it's okay to make mistakes. That's how we learn." she said kindly.
