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...

Misery Love Bros
June 27, 1888 - Percy Adlard's Home, Bartonburg, Hogsmeade
Quincey Honeyduke

In the four days since Percy had returned home he had tried not to indulge in self pity. Not with Quin around. Quin had it much worse than a bum leg. But every time Percy stood up to walk around he could not ignore what the troll attack had cost him. He'd glare at the cane with a hatred he reserved for few others.

The healers hadn't been able to put him together, not really. The head injury had been easy enough, the bruising and cracked ribs they had made look like a minor injuries, the leg .... apparently shattered leg bones weren't suppose to wait twelve hours for them to heal.

All that Percy could handle, he'd been given a few days off for the injury, but each day he sat at home he determined his time off would be shorter and shorter. So he'd asked for cases in Hogsmeade. Surely he could help with those. He hadn't heard back yet. But what Percy couldn't handle, what was worse than being able to help protect his community, his town, and his sisters, was the Daily Prophet sitting open on Percy's lap. Surely he could be of some use, they wouldn't turn him away if he volunteered, would they? With a glare at the cane Percy stood up, his leg promptly gave out on him and he went clattering down on the floor, Lily japing fiercely as her master made a fool of himself. Bloody leg, bloody troll.

This whole not working thing was really starting to get to him. Quin had worked his entire adult life and even some as a teenager. He simply didn't know how to be unemployed. There was always something to do in the shop, always something to clean or bake or someone to talk to. Percy had been generous enough to let him crash in the spare room and Quin was eternally grateful, but he was going to go bonkers soon if he didn't find something to do. Anna was probably sick of him meddling in the kitchen and without magic he couldn't really get into the shop to start rebuilding.

What he had been able to do though was climb up to what was left of the second story and retrieve some of his personal belongings from the flat with a hold in the floor. His old bedroom was mostly in tact and he grabbed clothes and some personal effects, hoping like hell once magic was working again he could really get in there and start the restoration process.

He made his way back to Percy's with am armful of things, pushing open the back door with his hip. "Percy?" He called assuming his friend was likely to be home because of his newly acquired bum leg. They were a hot mess.

“If you be my soft and sweet,
I'll be your strong and steady.”

Cursing, Percy pulled himself upright as he heard Quin’s voice. Horrible timing, he thought bitterly as he dragged himself back into the chair, his cheeks red with embarrassment.

In here!” He answered. Quin entered the room moments later with arms full of stuff. Percy was sure he could guess what that was if given just one guess. “How’s the store?” He asked gently, genuinely feeling guilty for the whole situation. Couldn’t he have led the troll into any other storefront on High Street?
