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

Two Sides of the Same Coin
June 11th, 1888 — Honeyduke's Sweet Shop
Sage Macnair
Going to Hogsmeade was stupid, especially due to the nearby Irvingly fog and the rampant gossip regarding her cousin and Uncle Argus. She'd become rather paranoid that anyone who heard her name would think ill of her, even if they didn't know who she really was—never mind that most people didn't really like her either way.

Her father had been insistent, though; they were going to visit the Lestrange family, but like, her Lestrange relatives rather than Seneca. (Not that she imagined that would have gone well, either.) While her father stood outside speaking to another Ministry employee, Holly had quietly sneaked into the nearby Honeyduke's with the hope of escaping the bustling public. The solitude of Honeyduke's in the morning was—nonexistent.

"Mr. Macnair," she greeted cordially, but made no effort to wear a smile or any other expression of outward friendliness. She supposed this one—Sage—was better than Germander Macnair, her betrothed.

(At least, she thought, his face was less likely to immediately peeve her upon sight.)

Sage wasn't especially fond of being around a lot of people so it followed that heading into Hogsmeade had definitely not been his idea. As it was though, he had recently realized that he needed 'friendships' which was sort of an 'eh' concept since there were very few people that he got along with. Most of his cousins were tolerable, at least and a couple of his dormmates. Abney had a little bit of a sweet tooth apparently so he had been brought into Honeydukes while his dormmate got what he wanted. He didn't quite enjoy sweets himself so this was a pointless place for him to be in.

Watching his 'friend' end up in a conversation with an older Slytherin that Sage personally couldn't stand, he looked towards the door as his brothers betrothed entered the establishment. "Miss Scrimgeour," he greeted amiably enough. "Missing Hogwarts yet?" Sage was personally indifferent about his locale so long as he had his books. It was rather inconvenient to technically not be able to use any magic though.

"Yes," she responded indifferently, beginning to shift through a package of so-called "limited edition" sugar pops. "And you?" she asked, eyeing him for a moment. He was definitely as handsome as his brother—though his short answers made him infinitely more preferable. Germander Macnair would have likely thrown himself into a tirade about her disgraced cousins—or something of that sort. Germander Macnair was always out to spite her.

"I suppose," Sage stated. He probably would have been content to leave the conversation at that but he was supposed to be socializing with peers and all that and besides, he was a little curious about the girl that would be part of his family one day. "It's not so much the school but the inability to do magic wherever I desire." He could get away with doing it at home but if he wanted to have a little bit of magical entertainment then he was out of luck. "And the library. Have you had the chance to look through many of the books?" He didn't know her reading or study habits but from what he had been told about her, he thought she might be the sort to want to learn about the fun shit like hexes before learning about them in class.

The inability to do magic was a problem, and even more so living in London than Hogsmeade. Of course, she had a magical father and step-mother—but her step-mother was nearly never home and her father worked.

"I suppose," she responded, flashing a knowing smile at him. "It's unfortunate that the school feels the need to limit us to what we can and cannot read—don't you think?" she asked. Had Sage Macnair ever found his way into the Restricted Section? And if so, what was it like?
