Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

Now that he had walked up to them, he couldn't exactly whirl around and get going. That would be rude. And was not, presumably, how straight men seduced their future wives.

Electing to wear muggle-influenced clothing over traditional wizard garments, Andrew can often be seen with some variation of a well-tailored suit on.

He stands at five feet and eight inches and has short brown hair and hazel eyes. He is right handed and holds his wand fairly delicately when casting spells.

Andrew travels for work fairly often in order to attain new contracts with businesses.

1852 - Andrew is born to a textile factory owner and his wife. They are thrilled to have a boy as their bloodline is now secure.
1857 - A few months before Andrew's fifth birthday, Jacob is born.
1858 - Feeling as if he is no longer receiving any attention from his mother, having been used to his fathers regular absence due to work, Andrew exhibits his first show of magic by causing the door in his room to fall off it's hinges.

Whilst both parents are shocked by this, it is Andrew's mother who supports him whilst his father begins to refer to Andrew as a freak.
1864 - A Hogwarts letter arrives and Andrew's father realises his son may not be a freak but someone very special. He supports his sons move to Hogwarts financially under the pretence it is never mentioned to his brother. He is sorted into Ravenclaw.
1869 - Andrew excels at his OWLs, receiving favourable grades. Most notable, he seems to have a keen interest in charms work.
1871 - His studying continues and he receives fairly good grades in his NEWTs; receiving the best grades in Charms and Transfiguration. 1872 - Andrew moves back home and begins working with his father though is disallowed from practicing magic. He practices charmswork in secret.
1874 - Jacob asks Andrew about the school he went to for several years and Andrew decided to lie, claiming it was a school for naughty children.
1876 - Andrews parents fall ill and after a few weeks, Andrews father passes. He leaves his entire business to Andrew whilst Jacob only receives the family house. Tensions begin to rise.
1877 - Andrew had been trying to keep his mother from dying through various magical means though she dies in the winter. Jacob suspects Andrew is hiding something and they fall out. Andrew moves to Hogsmeade before the year is out.
1881 - Andrew meets Juniper and instantly falls for her. He isn't sure why immediately though he quickly realises she is veela - though shrugs it off as his feelings, he believes, are real. He begins courting her and they are engaged by the end of the summer.
1882 - The two marry on January 18th and as a gift for their wedding, Andrew buys Juniper an estate near her father's own estate.
1883 - Emily is born. Andrew wanted a boy and is fairly disappointed though seeing her face for the first time makes him realise he truly is in love with Juniper and it isn't just the veela charm... probably.
1885 - Their first son, David, is born and Andrew is over the moon; he now has an heir.
1886 - Edmund is born.
1887 - The two halfbreed related bans come into effect and Andrew struggles to keep his mouth quiet about the blatant inequality.
1888 - Halfbreed ban is lifted though the marriage ban isn't. Andrew finds solace in the fact his children are able to go to Hogwarts, though is irreversibly miffed at the marriage ban, hoping the legal status doesn't change; he retains that it is legal and always will be, whatever the law may change to.
