->They say that when somebody acts out of character it is serious business. So when [[LadyOfWar Weiss]] let out three well-chosen expletives and tried to grind the hand written note on the beautiful stationary that gave the faintest and most modest impression of having been scented with rose water into a fine powder, her friends were duly concerned. Weiss wasn't like this when she was mad. She was a prissy heiress with an air of angry refinement with options on a good tirade ''[sic]'' when she was mad. They could not recall ever hearing her swear like that.
