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

"The Prodigal Sister" for Ophelia Devine. Faked deaths, scandal, and schemes!
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.

The Rumor Mill
This is a staff run, member-submitted thread that will post anonymous rumors. These may or may not be true and members are welcome to submit their own. If a character is breaking propriety in public, a rumor will be written by the GHags or a member of staff. Within reason, you can submit rumors about other people's characters without their permission!

Rumor mill rumors can affect reputation if they make their way into the Daily Prophet.

If you want a rumor posted, PM this account and a member of staff with your rumor. Rumors are presumed to have begun being spread the same day that they are posted.

"You won't believe this! Lorcan Byrne - he's one of those Connollys - proposed to one of the Backus girls in the bakery the other week... I don't think she said yes, though."

"I saw Reuben Crouch and Miss Scrimgeour drinking together at the street fair last week, without a chaperone in sight. Normally I'd be scandalized, but you know the sort of reputation he has--and she fell out of the social sphere after less than a season. Perhaps they're perfect for each other."

I heard Mrs. Abercrombie retched all over Mr. Agrimony Macnair at the hospital fundraiser! If I were her, I would not show my face at any social functions for a while—and it's made worse by the fact that he's family, too!

Have you heard? Miss Scrimgeour hasn't been to work in days, and people are beginning to wonder where she's run off to this time! Apparently it's very unlike her; they say she's not the type to miss work without notice!

"I heard there was some commotion at the Ministry yesterday — someone even said there was an arrest made, but nothing's been published in the paper. What do you suppose has happened?"

"I heard that Mister Richard Gladstone was quite fond of Annabelle Scrimgeour - in a romantic fashion! It would be a terrible waste for a man with such great potential and assets to end up ensnared by that harlot. Do you suppose a bit of matchmaking with the right sort of girl for him might be in order?"

"The Scrimgeour family left their Hogsmeade home yesterday! The neighbors said they were retreating to their home in the Welsh countryside—no doubt because of the damage that nasty daughter of theirs has done to their reputations!"
