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.

Fog Reaches Wellingtonshire
More of the Wizarding Community Affected

Wellingtonshire residents woke up and left their homes only to find themselves surrounded by a dusty-smelling fog, signaling that the fog has  reached Hogsmeade. The Department of Magical Accidents & Catastrophes, who have failed to stop the fog so far, are continuing to work against the fog in Irvingly and Wellingtonshire, something which is complicated by the fog's suppression of magic. The Irvingly Constable and Hogsmeade authorities are continuing to restrict usage of the train between the two communities due to the poor visibility.

Miss Miriam Trelawney, of Irvingly, was unsympathetic to the Wellingtonshire residents. "Of course everyone cares once it reaches Hogsmeade," she snapped to our reporters, "Meanwhile I've been healing with muggle techniques for nearly a week, and I haven't been dramatic about it."

Mrs. Elsbeth Lupin, Wellingtonshire resident, said, "I am just beside myself with fear! So many horrible things could happen without magic in Hogsmeade! Magic is how we survive. How are we supposed to function without it? My son's favorite toy broomstick is completely useless now and he's been inconsolable!"

She went on, "And now I'll have to pay a ground service fee to have my wine delivered from Irvingly instead of floo'd! This is the worst thing that could have happened! We may as well be muggles at this rate!"

One is not sure how Mrs. Lupin came to these conclusions in only a few hours, but she was nonetheless quite staunch about them.

Minister Ross stated, "The Ministry is directing all of our efforts towards fixing the impacts of the fog. With any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Magical Accidents & Catastrophes or my own office."
