Did You Know?
Queen Victoria was known for putting jackets and dresses on her pups, causing clothing for dogs to become so popular that fashion houses for just dog clothes started popping up all over Paris. — Fox
It would be easy to assume that Evangeline came to the Lady Morgana only to pick fights. That wasn't true at all. They also had very good biscuits.

THE GREAT BLIZZARD OF 1894
Part I: February 27th & 28th (the 1st)



THE BLIZZARD DETAILS

The 24th of February saw the Wizarding World of Great Britain warned about record low temperatures for the upcoming week. The morning of the 27th of February sees the first snowflakes start to land. By the early afternoon, it could comfortably be categorized as a winter storm, though not devastating by any means. However as soon as the sun starts to set, all hell breaks loose. An implosion can be heard - and felt - from all corners of the country with shockwaves creating a small earthquake-like effect to every building imaginable. Though not damaging enough to cause serious injury and certainly not long lasting, a sense of foreboding might be felt all around, as no one can determine where the source came from.

As soon as the sun has completely set in the sky, blanketing everything in darkness, the winter storm turns into a fatal blizzard with a peculiar caveat: every thirty minutes, the snow completely stops. During this time, the night turns quiet, and everything seems to settle, creating a severe false sense of security. Once those thirty minutes are up, however, the weather will start to rage once more. This will continue until 9 am on February 28th, at which time emergency aid efforts are immediately dispatched by the Ministry including medical squad teams to make sure any of those caught in the blizzard are seen to safety, and the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes. During this time it is highly advised that citizens stay inside for their own safety. Indeed, some may be stuck, as the DMA&C will soon discover....the fallen snow is impervious to magic.

Soon after that, it becomes apparent that magic folk start to notice some...peculiar magical occurrences [see below]. Soon, the effects start to spread like wildfire (heh) and the entire country is subsequently thrown into chaos. Friday March 1st is when the Wizarding World will wake up to some...odd and unsettling news (see part II). While the magical effects will be cleared up by March 2 1894, the magically impervious snow will remain until March 5.

A Daily Prophet article will come out on March 1st with more details of what happened.


MAGICAL EFFECTS
These effects are meant to be in small pockets scattered around - for example: anti-gravity wouldn't be experienced in the entirety of Padmore Park, however one may find small spaces of anti-gravity around the park.
  • Anti-Gravity: characters suddenly find themselves and other objects around them floating
  • Time Loops: see here for more information from Lynn! (note: I contacted her asking permission to use these instances for the plot <3)
  • Magic Dampening: characters might find that their magic has completely stopped working.
  • Atmospheric Weather Changes: some pockets of air might still be raging with the blizzard.
