After a magical attempt on her life in 1877, Queen Victoria launched a crusade against magic that, while tidied up by the Ministry of Magic, saw the Wizarding community exiled to Hogsmeade, previously little more than a crossroad near the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In the years that have passed since, Hogsmeade has suffered plagues, fires, and Victorian hypocrisy but is still standing firm. A decade later, relations between the Crown and the magical community have at last been restored, but it is a tentative truce as trust begins to be developed once more.
Charming mixes the fantastic universe of Harry Potter with the culture of Victorian England to create an engaging universe shaped by the characters within it. Established in 2010, we continue to grow (in character and out!), inspired by the magical world that our creations inhabit.
Join us this coming fall as we prepare for the election of a new Minister for Magic! Who knows what could happen?
