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.

See Into the Heart!
Acclaimed Matchmaker Spotted in Irvingly

Lovelorn ladies and baffled bachelors rejoice: romance may be in the cards for you! This reporter has been alerted to the presence of a seer specializing in matchmaking in the small, rural village of Irvingly!

Miss Inès Valentine, a Moroccan import, is well known in her home country—as well as in Spain, Portugal, and France—for her skill at finding her clients The One. French magazine La Sorcière describes the aptly name witch as a "prophetic matchmaker", with an "uncanny ability to predict the romantic lives of those around her". Numerous witches and wizards alike have cited Miss Valentine as the "source of all their happy endings".

Reportedly, Miss Valentine favours crystal balls and tarot cards as her medium of choice, but has displayed the gift of True Prophecy and has used other tools in a pinch. One wonders if her gifts have accompanied her to our fair nation—and what that could mean for the unmarried and insecure in our communities!

The reason for Miss Valentine's presence in Irvingly is unknown. Those with further information are, as always, encouraged to contact our offices.
