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.

Title

1888. After a magical attempt on her life in 1877, Queen Victoria launched a crusade against magic that, while tidied up by the Ministry of Magic, saw the Wizarding community exiled to Hogsmeade, previously little more than a crossroad near the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In the years that have passed since, Hogsmeade has suffered plagues, fires, and Victorian hypocrisy but is still standing firm. A decade later, relations between the Crown and the magical community have at last been restored, but it is a tentative truce as trust begins to be developed once more.

With muggles perceived once more as a fact of life, rather than a threat to existence, Wizarding Britain has turned its attentions upon a new scapegoat: halfbreeds. What the future holds in store for such individuals — and for the wizarding community as a whole — is now anyone’s guess!

Charming mixes the fantastic universe of Harry Potter with the culture of Victorian England to create an engaging universe shaped by the characters within it. Established in 2010, we continue to grow (in character and out!), inspired by the magical world that our creations inhabit.
