Did you know?

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.

Regarding the Moon
A Letter to the Editor

While returning home late from work the other night, I looked up at the moon and I thought to myself: what is the point of it? As far as I see it the moon isn't much good for light most nights and when it is, it's giving half the population moon madness and turning others into werewolves! I may not have gotten my OWL's but it doesn't take a genius to see that the moon is just a liability. I don't believe it's made of cheese myself, but if it is the sky is no place for cheese. What surprises me is that no one's ever done a thing to solve the problem of the moon before. It seems bleeding obvious to me that we ought to destroy it and solve all our moon-related problems. I'm guessing the only reason it ain't been done yet is pro-werewolf idiots and the whole Department of Whatever They Claim To Do With Werewolves who don't want to be left out of a job!

I propose that the Ministry send a bunch of men up there on brooms and jinx it into a pile of rubble or cheese curds or whatever it's made of. I'm hoping that by sending this letter to you to publish in the paper I won't have to worry about the Ministry taking all the credit for solving the lycanthropy problem.
