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

Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Here Comes The Horde

30th June, 1888 - Streets of North Bartonburg

A faint buzzing sound began at dawn, and is only getting louder now as the streets of Bartonburg come alive. The fog still makes it hard to see, but you might have made out something coming from the direction of Padmore Park: a different kind of cloud. When it gets near enough, the dense, droning mass shifts, releasing hundreds upon thousands of large brown locusts into the streets. The locusts in this swarm will feast on any food or vegetation (they're making light work of the park!), fly through any open door or window, and squeeze into any nook or cranny they find.  

They're already everywhere. Better keep your mouth closed...

Happy weekend!

She should have stayed inside. Her mother had said it was dangerous, had trusted her to behave without constant supervision and, like an utter Barney she had not listened to reason and snuck out the back door, determined she would be cooped up no longer and a small stroll through familiar streets would do no real harm.

With the benefit of hindsight Tamsin now accepted that reading in the sitting room had probably been a good idea after all, and while a little dull, would almost certainly not have resulted in her banging on the door of a stranger, desperately trying to be granted entrance before whatever that was reached her!

"Help!"

Work at the hospital was never-ending, and while Ari had never minded that before, the peril of having to do it all without magic was doubly exhausting, and so, after he’d fed the cats and his housekeeper had gone off to brave the market in the fog, he had quietly planned to go back to bed.

Perhaps he’d be better off sleeping all weekend, he considered, hearing the dull sound of buzzing in his ears and presuming that was merely another mark of fatigue. That said, he’d only made it halfway up the stairs in the hall when another, louder sound took over.

Someone was pounding on his front door. Startled, Ari froze on the stairs for a moment, wondering whether he could be dreaming that - but then a cry for help came, and he dashed back down the stairs and dragged the door open wide.

If anything, the buzzing in his ears had now intensified, but Ari shook his head, trying to be rid of it, and stared at the young lady standing there. “What’s - the matter?” He said, bewildered but ready to help, if he could. He craned his neck to try and look past her, in case someone was injured in the street.
