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.

Post practice group shower scene
See Inside 
June 2nd, 1888 — Howlers' Quidditch Pitch, Underground, Locker Rooms/Changing Rooms?
Open to any players of the Howlers! I made up the changing rooms being beneath the pitch and that there even is indoor plumbing so we're just going with magic~

It had been a good practice. He had flown hard and at least 95% of his attempted goals had been made. He was improving, as was the team as a whole. They had moved up in the brackets. Realistically, they weren't going to the finals at the end of the season. The following season, however, there was a strong possibility that they would be right up there with Puddlemere. They'd recently had two Hogwarts graduates join the team, inexperienced tossers that they were. They had yet to see how that would effect their scores. If it made them drop in the rankings, Declan would be tempted to rough them up a bit to make them quit the team. They hadn't worked this hard to get it screwed up by new blood.

Beneath the pitch the air was cool, a relief from the hot summer sun. Someone had beat him to the bathroom and had already turned the shower faucets on. He unlaced his dragonhide gloves and glanced at the teammate that had just walked in, "Good practice today, eh? Hot one though - a nice cold glass of butterbeer is callin' m'name."

Whitledge and MacFusty weren't bad, but they weren't great yet, either. That was to be expected, mostly, as they were just out of Hogwarts - and Whitledge was on second string - but Art was still worried about how things would play out once they were on the pitch for a real game.

"Yeah, I could go for one," Art agreed with Wood, pushing his arms out behind his back to stretch the muscles in his shoulder.

"Very hot," Tybalt called to Wood and their captain in a tone of staged innocence, taking advantage of the spitting of the shower nearby to drown out his words if anyone came in. He hadn't made much headway on taking off his own kit, more interested in mischievously bundling out one of their newest teammates' change of clothes (he wasn't sure whose) from the changing room shelf where they'd been left to vanish them away somewhere. With any luck, they'd not notice a thing, and then get a nice surprise when they stepped out of the shower. He'd hang back here and turn their quidditch robes invisible too.

Well, they had to do something fun for the new Hogwarts graduates.  

"It’d be such a shame to have to put clothes back on after,” he elaborated in a conspiratorial whisper, putting his finger to his lips to warn the others they'd better cover for him.

Munny had been halted on his way to the locker room to chat up a particularly pretty redhead. Once that had been done with, he entered the locker room to see the first strings with expressions that his more bratty cousins tended to have. Shrugging it off, he started to get his gear off and wondered where Handsome had wandered off to. Probably he was the one in the shower. He had no idea why anyone would want to see any of the others naked - Kirke maybe -but whatever floated their boat, he wouldn't judge. "I can't wait to get home," he said as he put his things into his locker/whatever. This was still better than dealing with the dragons though if he knew his Pa, he'd be being expected to do some of that as soon as he got home.
oo; just a reminder that munnys still just a second string as of this thread!
