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.

Woman Savaged By Gnomes [And More!]

Woman Savaged By Gnomes
Attack Unprecedented

Hawthorne Hollow, Irvingly, is not a location one would expect to harbor dangerous creatures, magical or otherwise. Certainly, Miss Temperance Fairchild of Irvingly Infirmary could not have anticipated the misfortune that befell her yesterday afternoon. While taking a harmless stroll, Miss Fairchild was suddenly set upon by a gaggle of gnomes.

Those who are familiar with garden gnomes will recognize this as abnormal behavior for creatures who are usually harmless unless interfered with and decidedly incapable of organizing themselves. The only time gnomes are known to cause harm to humans is during a de-gnoming where a gnome may nip if given the opportunity. One could understand a gnome biting in such a situation where they may feel threatened, after all they are naturally shy and avoid humans where possible. This makes the events of yesterday afternoon all the more peculiar.

While Miss Fairchild was walking, this boisterous group of gnomes ambushed her in a most alarming and unexpected manner. Miss Fairchild sustained numerous wounds from the gnomes who bit and mauled her in their frenzied attack before she was able to escape. Miss Miriam Trelawney witnessed the attack firsthand and had this to say: "It's unusual for gnomes to be so aggressive, but luckily this is what the infirmary is for." Miss Fairchild was indeed admitted to Irvingly Infirmary where she happens to be employed as a nurse and is expected to make a complete recovery.

Unfortunately, the gnomes responsible fled before they could be captured and dealt with. Visitors to the Hawthorne Hollow area are urged to proceed with caution, though it is likely this was an isolated incident.
