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.

Impending Joy
June 12th, 1888 — The Herondale Home
Aurelia Wallingford
Note: Forgive me, my writing is a little rusty!
Although she had quite enjoyed her first year the Pendergast School, Eva had been relieved and somewhat pleased to hear that Mrs. Abercrombie had elected to close the school early. The developments of the mysterious fog that had settled unconstrained upon Irvingly had left her feeling a little wary - certainly nothing good could come from magically-induced weather with the capability of extinguishing all magical presence - and she’d been more than happy to board the Irvingly train back to Hogsmeade that morning, even more so once their carriage had pulled up in front of the familiar two-story home on Opal Crossing. It had been far too long since she’d last been home!

Eva smiled in thanks as her brother handed her out of the carriage, and looked fondly upon the little abode. Though modest from the outside, the illusion ended there as Eva stepped over the threshold, the plain pavement giving way to elegant marble floors in the foyer. Her Mama was first to greet her, in the midst of carrying out her usual household management routine, though instead of looking harried as she normally did, she seemed rather chipper, her smile reaching her lovely blue eyes and rather reminding Eva of Riff. Clearly something had made her day this morning, though naturally, Eva hardly had time to inquire before her things were brought in and her Mama was back into what Eva referred to as her “mistressing” mode.

With a smile and a small shake of her head, Eva wandered into the main parlor where she’d been informed that her elder sisters were, the younger - and Eva’s favorite, if she was being honest, though she’d never admit as much - of the two having come for a visit. Even they seemed cheerful, despite Eloise’s appearing a little forced, and in fact, her eldest sister seemed so relieved by her entrance that their pleasantries were cut short as she made her escape with the excuse of having a call to return, and Eva was suddenly left in the room with Aurelia.

“Goodness, nothing’s the matter, I hope?,” Eva asked with some concern as she watched her sister leave, lowering herself into the seat that Eloise had left unoccupied. There didn’t seem to be, at least, but then this was the first time she’d been home in months!

please send all alerts and PMs to Eva Herondale, thank you! <3
