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...

Am I Actually Doing This?
July 6th, 1888

To the Wallflower,

It is not in my nature to pen such letters, nor in my nature to respond to advertisements such as that which was posted in Witch Weekly. However, certain recent events in my life have led me to be keenly aware of my own mortality, and highlighted what is missing from my life: a wife. You, potentially.

I have a capable grasp of several languages, though am curious as to which is your preference. We might converse in French or in German; while I cannot write in foreign alphabets, I have a proficiency speaking in several.

Mine is an established household that is not unwelcome to new arrivals. I would provide a comfortable lifestyle for any woman who I chose to wed, and who chose myself in return.


A. C.

Dear A. C.,
I'm afraid I haven't read the advertisement in Witch Weekly, I hope it wasn't wildly misleading. I don't take out a subscription, you see.

Between French and German my preference would have to be for French, I sadly know little more than the odd German word. I do happen to be a native Russian speaker though.

Before I give a misleading impression of myself, I must be up front: I prefer intellectual pursuits to those of a society wife, and to make matters worse I have a visible disfigurement.

If you are not yet deterred from writing back, what do you enjoy doing in any spare time you might have?

Yours sincerely,
Miss S.
