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

What's Wrong With This Family?
June 14th, 1888 - London; Scrimgeour Household The better Scrimgeours

The Scrimgeour name seemed to be falling apart. Even though this started with Bella, Uncle Argus seemed to be the root of the problem. He did always seem a little off to her. Having never wanted to be disrespectful, she had never once addressed it, not even to Holly. After all, how would her older sister have handled the information that Camille, her own sister, was having doubts about one of their blood? Camille couldn't imagine the result.

Now seemed to make things different. Bella and Uncle Argus had made it obvious that they apparently wanted to be talked about. After all, both were all over the papers, and everyone at school seemed to be talking about it. Though she was still hesitant to speak with Holly on the topic. After all, it had taken her this long to even consider it. However there was also the whole 'I broke your wand' factor that also played a part. Sitting next to her sister for breakfast. "Good morning Holly." She said, mainly in an attempt to start off with small talk.

Holly had been following Madam Sykes' advice in the days since writing her by trying to ignore the situation that was so obviously causing her family distress. She was just twelve, she reminded herself humbly. It was not her responsibility to handle the situation regarding her disastrous family, nor did she have any bearing on how things turned out. Any attempts to meddle would only lead to trouble and frustration.

But oh how she wished to give everyone a piece of her mind.

She was still in her nightgown when she'd wandered down for breakfast, having already adopted a rather lazy sleep schedule after her first year of Hogwarts had concluded. Her blonde hair was loosely braided down her back, and her face was red and sensitive from the harsh scrubbing she'd given it that morning. It was time for food—and apparently small-talk, she noted in annoyance as her sister sat down beside her.

"Good morning, Camille," she responded dully. "I hope you slept well?"

you know who made this? heck yeah, MJ did

One thing that she kept repeating in her mind to reassure herself that her future would be fine was that one day she will marry and then her last name will change. When that day comes, she shall no longer have a name tied to a bunch of crazies. Until then she practiced patience. Patience had been a dear friend to her. Though it had faded away at loosing her twin, it surfaced now at this new time of stress.

It had actually been a shock that Holly hadn't broken down and started screaming to at least one person. Or at least demanding that the staff members of the household charm her howlers for her. Both options made much more sense, and were options that Camille was far more prepared to handle emotionally.

Already seeing the sleep and annoyance filled expression on her face, Camille was hesitant to speak at all. But alas, she had already said something. It would be quite rude to ignore her sister's response. "I had a very odd dream last night. It even woke me up in the middle of the night. Then I fell back asleep to no dreams at all. Both occurrences still seem to be a bit flustering." She responded thoughtfully.
