Default Pub Seating


Here at the Leaky Cauldron things can get pretty busy, and, for Louisa, this is exactly the case. For this purpose, a few changes have been made and now customers may come to the counter to place their orders, so as to keep the chaos down and keep things less hectic for the busy workers and their customers.

In the center of the room sits the baby of the Leaky Cauldron - baby grand piano that is. It is not unusual to enter the Leaky Cauldron and see costumers playing away at the piano. However, this piano is widely special, even for the Wizarding World. Years ago, Ryoma, former owner Harley's partner, built it by hand and therefore as one plays each key the ivory gives off a little puff of colored smoke that rises up into the air and form shapes that begin to tell a story to the music.

Off to the side of the room, a cozy fireplace and seating area can be found for those looking to relax a bit before heading off to the busy shops of Diagon Alley. At various times throughout the day, Louisa will drop by with a tray of assorted snacks for those sitting by the fireplace to enjoy.

OOC: Please do NOT RP for Louisa. Doing so will cause your post to be edited or deleted depending on the severity. The piano is free for all to use so have fun with that and enjoy yourself. Also, please remember that Louisa does NOT take orders at the tables. You must go the Bar and Service Counter for that.

And a very IMPORTANT warning. Please please PLEASE make sure you have read all SS rules - especially those involving drinking. There will be a zero tolerance policy in regards to this rule.

I love to sketch things, have since I was little. My father owns a tea company, you've probably heard of Valla Teas." They were pretty popular, "so I have been able to get my hands on many things." Though in the last year most of it had been taken from her by her own doing. "Oh, I haven't asked Bentley about sets, I'm just so grateful that he brought me on at all, really he was a lifesaver." She might not have made it at the beginning of the last year if it wasn't for that job and things to focus on.

Sitting back and listening to him talk about all the jobs he had was so interesting, "and you did these all since becoming of age? What skills you have learned." Z was really impressed and wondered if he had done them all in different countries or once he was done with his traveling, but she wasn't going to interrupt to ask. She just nodded a few times until she realized he probably wasn't seeing the nods, "Wow that is so cool, I mean I've only ever really worked maybe one or two jobs but I've gotten to travel a little because of my family. We weren't originally from here, but I've been here since I was eight." So the accent was German, she had a thought, but didn't want to put her finger on it just yet.

"So you work with potions, what are the best experiment and the worst you've come across with potions?" The conversation was going well in her eyes and the awkward silence that happened at times didn't seem to be coming anytime soon, plus she couldn't help but think that it was ironic all her past thoughts about guys didn't relate to him since he couldn't see well. This evening felt like it was going well, she hoped he thought so too.

He wanted to talk about design well that was a topic she enjoyed. "I think designs can make whatever you want them to make. You want something cozy, pick warm colors, art that makes you feel good." She had ideas for all areas, "Like this place, I think bringing in some more blues and even a hint of yellow could lighten up the sitting room for when families come in, relax some that get anxious in busy places, and just a fun design for a public area." She took a bite of her food while she thought about the next question, "I like getting inspiration from other's designs, but I don't really know until I see the area what I want to go with." She hoped that was what he was asking.
He wasn’t familiar with Valla Teas. Perhaps it was a British brand. Adam gave a grateful nod to the waitress before looking down at his plate. A few seconds of staring at it brought he dish into focus and he was able to take an educated guess as to where the fish, versus the chips were. He’d have to be a little more careful with the wine glass though. He was still listening though as he picked up a chip. Thankfully he didn’t smell any vinegar as he popped it into his mouth. He was curious about why she had needed saving, but it really wasn’t his place to ask. If she wanted to tell him, she would. And if she didn’t want to tell him, well, that was her right.

”Patience,” he said with a goofy smile. What else had he learned from all those jobs? ”Lots of Patience. But mostly I learned vhat I did not like. Und,” he waved another chips around for emphasis. ”How to make a Zalted Caramel Chocolate Tart.” Adam was a pretty good cook and baker. In fact, had he not found the potioneer’s job at the ministry, he might very well have gone back to the bakery in Turkey to learn more. Maybe opened his own little shop somewhere.

Well, that was a loaded question. He chewed on a bite of fish as he thought it over. Oddly, the answer to her question was the same. ”Das best vould be that I get to help peoples..” He reached out and carefully found the glass of wine. ”There was zis one potion, I worked on for months, I cannot tell how many times it blew up in Mein face. Mein hair was lined with pink anne blue for months.” He brought the wine glass to his lips, sipping slowly. " But when it finally worked? It was Das most exciting feeling.” He put his wine glass down, shifting forward in this seat. ”I feel like, das reward izt worth das possible side effects...because vat i do helps people.” He had the feeling she could understand. What she wanted to do was similar, even if it was with space and objects, verses a potion. ”Vat you want to do, it izt similar nein? Helping people be more happy - more...comfortable.”

He couldn’t really see the complete aspects of the room they were in, but he could agree that the place could use some more color, if just to brighten it up. He listened quietly, nodding along when he agreed as he ate his food. He was mostly following her, but he had no eye for design. Never had even before his accident. ”Sounds like you have eh guud eye for things. Makes me wonder vat you vould tink of mein place.” The words were out before he thought them through, because Adam was the type of guy was simply that innocent of things. He became quiet for a moment as he realized that what he had said might be taken the wrong way. Then flushing pink in the cheeks, he quickly went on to add. ” Nein thaht I am saying we go...I...um...I have eh lot of plants.” he finished lamely looking off to the side.

Q. had entertained a long, but productive day. He'd picked out a color wave for the shop, ordered several new, and rare species of succulent to cultivate and sell, hired on an accountant and spoken to a copyright lawyer, and lastly- but least(ly)- replied to all his mail.

So yes, he believed he deserved this glass of Bordeaux. Quentin had never seen the appeal of wine until this last year when it's calming presence and complex flavor had been introduced to him at a dinner party held by some very affluent friends- and now? it was his only drink of choice, Many of his friends considered this snobbery, especially from someone under the age of 25 but Q brushed it all off. He liked what he liked. Humming to himself as he swirled his glass of red, Quentin found himself gravitating toward the piano. He had learned to play in his youth, would his fingers still know the way?

with a wry grin, the young man- still standing- tickled an ivory.

SUMMER FOREVER

Henrietta stood right in the middle of the street, simply staring up at the cloudy sky for a long moment. She had quite enjoyed walking the streets of Diagon Alley after what felt like forever but it was definitely going to rain soon so she decided to grab a drink before heading back home.

She entered the familiar pub nearby, immediately taking off her jacket because it really was quite warm inside. Draping it over the back of a chair, the twenty-one year old headed towards the bar to order, completely oblivious to her surroundings. Hmm.. what did she want? She studied the menu intently, humming a tune.

So finally, Sean is on vacation. After all the internships and gruesome part time jobs that he had to do in between, this is a well needed vacation. Finishing an internship is like finishing the entire 7 years at Hogwarts, yes that's how it feels like. Not that he is complaining about it. Sean made his way into the Diagon Alley streets and the first place he pops into is the Leaky Cauldron... of course. What better way to relax than to splurge on whiskey and rum. Plus it has been awhile since he last step foot into Leaky Cauldron. His life in the past year was basically home- job- internship-home and every time his co-workers would ask him to hangout he would decline. Sleep, at that point was more important rather than booze and mingling.

But for now, he is in the mood for mingle or whatever happens. He walks inside and ordered his usual drink- the rum and sits on the seating area. He's always thankful for pubs like this. It's a great way to unwind and meet new people. Who knows. The place had people but it was not a lot for it to be considered crowded, no. Thankfully it isn't. He folds his sleeves and fixed his collar. he made sure that his bag was under the table, he is not planning to go home any time soon.

He takes one sip of his rum and savor the goodness of it. He then placed his glass on the table whilst he look around.

Matt was rocking his Muggle outfit - he could dress as one just fine as his own father was a Muggle, see, so he wasn't really making a fool of himself for once - as he strolled into the Leaky Cauldron through the entrance that linked the pub to the Muggle world.

It was always refreshing to go back into the magical world after spending the entire morning with Muggles.

The 22 year-old grinned as he walked past the bar, saluting the lady at the counter. He made a bee-line towards the piano BECAUSE duh. He had spent his morning doing boring Muggle things, it was time to jazz things up in the Magical World with the magical piano, mwaha.

Sitting at it, he cracked his knuckles pretending he knew what he was doing. To be honest, his sister was the pianist of the Meriwether siblings, he didn't quite practice it that much. But it wasn't like he was completely ignorant when it came to that instrument AND he couldn't pass the opportunity of playing the thing that puffed up magical smoke in the air and told stories as he played. Now THAT was some cool stuff, right there.

"I'll take requests!" He proclaimed for anyone to hear before starting to play a jazzed up version of the latest Dead Kneazles single. Lol. Sure, he messed up some notes here and there - he wasn't a pro, alright - but that made it even better (read: funnier) in his opinion.

Whilst he was half way through the rum he remembered about the things he need to do once he gets home. That means chores. Yes, apparently his place has been uncleaned for a long while now and now that he doesn't have a job he really needs to get his place clean. He rummage inside his back and found his sticky notes and a pen. He placed it on top of the table and start writing his 'to-do list'. For awhile his short list became longer. There was a lot of things to do and stuff to buy. OOOORRR he could rely in his magic to clean everything up easily. Hey, why didn't he think of that before. Why is all of this just coming to him now? He must have been sleep deprived to not even realize that he is a wizard. Yep, that must be it.

He was casually looking around just in case he knew someone but he didn't. Instead he sees a man who is probably the same age as him walk into the bar and directly towards the piano. Not that it is odd or anything, but no one really plays the piano in Leaky Cauldron unless a drunk group of wizards want to sing or dance along to something.

He placed his pen down when the guys spoke. Requests? Well why not. If he is good enough then today will be a good day to be posh at a pub. Rum and some classical music? Sean will love that. He raised his glass and looked at the guy and replied "Etude Op. 25, No. 5" smiling at the guy and adds "Chopin". What if this guy is not into muggle music? What if he doesn't even know who Chopin is? Whoah he did not think this one through at all. "or you know, something else." he said that in a rather soft voice.

W.h.a.t.

Matt let out a loud, joyous belly laugh. If he were old, had a fluffy white beard and weighed 15 stones more, he could've been easily mistaken by Santa Claus. Lol. Etoodowhat?

"Your wish is my command!" He said cheerfully, giving the guy a thumbs up and changing the tune immediately from the Dead Kneazles to The Weird Sisters. One of their slow songs, you know. That particular one his cousin Sophie loved so much. What was it called again? Uh... Matt didn't know. He knew the tune, though, and so that was what he was playing.

The dude's other comment made him laugh again. "This is your Show pun, mate. Is it alright?" He asked the guy before turning to watch the puffs of smoke blown out of the piano turn into a couple that started dancing together. "Oh, all this sap. No wonder it's Sophie's favourite." He snorted.

That....

That's an odd way to laugh, Sean thought to himself. He stares back at the guy and then a smile began to form on his lips, he chuckled with him for a bit. Was there anything funny? Or maybe Sean was just right, he did request music that was created by a muggle maybe the man didn't know it?

Sean took another sip of his rum when the guy was okay with the request. He chuckled, so this guy knows who Chopin is. Technically the only reason why Sean knew who this musician is because of his mother. His mother loves anything classical. She listens to violin and cello pieces and not to forget, jazz pieces but her favorite is definitely the piano. Sean grew up listening to that.

Sean grinned once more and shakes his head. "Nah, i just enjoy listening to Chopin while drinking" he replied. "sort of like a habit" he explained. He is used to drinking alone, he returned his attention to the guy once again "You would be surprised at the amount of people who don't know Chopin from around here." the wizarding world that is. "I'm Sean by the way" he added. Since they're both talking, he might as well introduce himself to this guy.

The guy was laughing with him. Laughing at something he himself had said and Matt found funny (or something). Alright, he was officially cool in Matt's books.

That's right, mate, enjoy your drink while listening to the concert of your life!Only not really because Matt wasn't really that good at the piano. He could carry a tune alright, but nothing exceptional.

Matt snorted at the guy's comment. Not a problem. He couldn't give him proper Chopin, but Matt could be of some entertainment, that much he knew. "Oh, I know. People around here need a bit more culture, don't they?" He asked as he continued with the Weird Sisters tune, making the smoke couple move around in their little romantic dance. Matt was only joking, of course. If he himself wasn't half blood, meaning his dad was a Muggle and his own sister had grown up studying those piano pieces, he wouldn't have had a clue who Chopin was either. Then again, knowing who the guy had been and being able to play something by him were two different things.

But apparently this bloke hadn't noticed any difference, so that was a win from Matt's point of view, muehe. "I'm Matt. Pleased to meet you, good sir." He nodded his head and slowed down the tune he was playing to make it more dramatic and classical-sounding just to make a point. See, classical music for you to enjoy your... was that rum? "It's not often I meet such posh people." Lol.

Sean can definitely tell that there are some parts that this man can.... well, play better at but he is fairly decent at the piano so he will give him that. It's not like Sean really came to Leaky Cauldron to be wowed by someone at this time of the night, nope. But this is good. He needed the company and he finally got one, in the longest of time. Boy he needed to get out a lot while having a job. For now, since he is on vacation he needs to go out and be that social butterfly his mother have always told him.

He chuckled at what the man said. "That's very true" he agrees. He once met up with his cousin a long time ago and they talked about contemporary muggle music and his cousin-- being the wizard who only grew up in the Wizarding World-- had no clue whatsoever to what Sean was blabbering about. "It's actually great to finally talk to someone who knows what I'm talking about" he smiles. He is assuming that the man in front of him was raised in a muggle family or someone muggle. "Do you like playing the piano?" he asked, curious.

He nods at the man and raised his glass at him. "Pleasure to meet you, Matt." he said. "I rarely meet people who plays the piano here in Leaky Cauldron. I didn't know it was even allowed" he continued. For all the times he has visited the place not one person has ever came up to the piano and just opened it up then play. Everyone else in the pub seems nonchalant about it too.

posh people? Sean?

"Thank you" he replied. A compliment that he rarely hears. Rarely. "I'm just here with my rum but you on the other hand is playing the piano. I guess that one belongs more to you" the posh compliment that is.

Boy he needed to get out a lot while having a job. For now, since he is on vacation he needs to go out and be that social butterfly his mother have always told him.

He chuckled at what the man said. "That's very true" he agrees. He once met up with his cousin a long time ago and they talked about contemporary muggle music and his cousin-- being the wizard who only grew up in the Wizarding World-- had no clue whatsoever to what Sean was blabbering about.

Matt grinned and chuckled when the guy said about it being great to finally meet someone who knew what he was talking about. Poor guy, didn't have a clue Matt only had half-a clue what he was actually on about. He knew of Chopin, sure, but classic piano wasn't really his thing. Pop, jazzy music, THAT was right up his alley. He changed the tune he was playing to 'Billie Jean' before looking up at the other guy. "Do you know this one?"

If he liked playing the piano? "Yeah, I do. It's not my main thing, though. My real thing is the trumpet!" Matt grinned widely because that was his all time favourite instrument since he could remember. "You should hear me play Luke's Theme. And the Imperial March, of course!" He wondered if the guy knew Star Wars at all. Welp, he would soon find out!

This Sean bloke didn't know customers were allowed to play the piano!? "Whaaat!? I hardly ever walk past without somebody playing! I was happy to see it was free today, couldn't miss the chance!" He said, finally stopping his playing to turn his whole body around and face the guy. "Do you play?"

Matt laughed when Sean said he was the one who should be called posh. He didn't quite see himself as posh, but he supposed he understood where the guy was coming from. He was playing the piano after all. "I'll take that as a compliment on my playing. Thanks!" He gave him a jokey grin.

Sean tried to move his head from left to right, swaying it a bit to the music, just like his mother did every time she listens to classical music. For some reason, Sean got that same habit from her. He didn't even noticed that he did until he did. He chuckled when the man changed tunes to a rather iconic pop music. He nods and looks at Matt "Oh yes, I do. My mother apparently thrives to teach her kids- including me, to Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Madonna and many many more" he shared. Sean can tell that Matt also knows who these singers are.

He nods at Matt's explanation "Wow, you play the trumpet." he said enthusiastically. Definitely a wow because Sean does not personally know anyone who plays the trumpet. Only in the TVs or when they watch the parade or the orchestra.

Ahhhh.... "Star Wars fan, huh?" he chuckled once again. "that's cool" This is quite refreshing. Normally, at his job he has met muggleborns but none of them really discuss these types of topics that much. OOORR maybe because they were at work. Sean really needs to tag along with them when they hang out after work.

he shakes his head "I rarely come here and this would be the first in like the longest time" he sighed "I stay home a lot i guess" It's not that sad, right? Work makes him busy and tired. "but hey at least now I know that you can play here. Do you come by here often?" he asks. He did mention that he was happy to see the piano free for today. Sean turns and looks at Matt, shaking his head once again "I don't play any instruments but I grew up with my mother who adores listening to music." he replied.

Sean laughed at Matt's answer. He is starting to enjoy his time now that he met Matt. "how about you? Is your family big on listening to music too?"

"Madonna!" Matt clapped his hands in amusement and laughed out loud when Sean said that. "That's too funny! Your mother sounds cool. I'm impressed you know Michael, that makes you cool too." The young man stated with a grin. Anyone with good Muggle music taste was automatically in his good books sort of. "Wait, that means you like these guys, yeah?" No point just knowing them. Matt liked those who liked the King of Pop and not just heard of him. Lol.

Yep, he played the trumpet. "I do!" Matt nodded his head, a smug smile on his face. "Though you probably only thinks it's cool because you don't live with me." He added, laughing. He would feel sorry for his parents and siblings for having to put up with his constant playing, but it wasn't even as if he did it everyday anymore. Training to be an Auror took up a LOT of his time and energy, alright.

But WAIT!!!! This bloke knew of STAR WARS TOO!? "WHA-! Don't tell me you're--" Matt GAAASPED instead of finishing his sentences. "You like- no, hold on. So you're a Muggleborn? Or are one of your parents a Muggle?" That was the only plausible explanation, really. "I used to introduce myself as Matt Solo when I was at school." And after he left school too, actually. It was only at the Ministry that things were too bloody formal and he couldn't do that, sadly.

The trainee Auror snorted at Sean's comment about staying home a lot. "Oh, so you're one of the antisocial people I hear about?" Lol. Matt knew a fair share of those. "Though you can't be, you're the one who came up and started chatting. You can't be that bad." He added, laughing. "I do come here often, yeah! It's one of my chill-out places outside of the house. I normally come here after a hard day training, which is most days." Lol. Hashtag truth.

If his family was big on listening to music? "Oh, they are. But I'd dare say they're even bigger in making music. Even if it's just belting out along with a song that's playing on the radio. They're mad." He finished, laughing.

Sean laughed with Matt this time. He remembers the time when his mother would put these singers on their stereo and listen to it the entire day. Quite frankly, he is thankful that he grew up listening to these. "My mother is cool." he chuckles "Until you see her start dancing to Abba" he continued. Dancing Queen is a song that you can not not dance to. Sean didn't dance but he would be there just moving his body to the rhythm shyly. Sean nods his head to Matt's question, "yeah I like listening to their music. Back in my loft I just play their songs on repeat" that's the only way Sean can go to sleep. "How about you? Are you a fan of Mr. King of Pop?"

Sean can't help but laugh at what Matt said. "that's very true" Trumpets are those kinds of instrument that is loud. The idea that if he did live with one of his siblings that plays it now sounds more like a nightmare. "nevertheless it is still pretty cool. I think anyone who plays an instrument is cool." he nods once more.

Uhmmm...
Well, cat's out of the bag on this one but then again they really did not discuss about their blood status... because no one really does that. Sean chuckles and looked at Matt "yes, I have watched Star Wars because it was how my father 'bonded' with me as a kid" he said "my mother is halfblood but she's more muggle than she is a witch" guess you can say that. Sean never really learned that much magic lessons from her mother. It's usually more of tv shows, movies, who princess Diana is, fairy tale books, toy cars and all that. "how about you, Matt?"

Matt Solo. It made Sean clap his hands as he looked at him "Niiiice" totally cool. Why didn't Sean ever think of something as clever as that? Then again, there may be a chance that not a lot of people may get the reference.

Sean hums, "no, not anti-social" he replies. He is right about him approaching him first "more like always tired. I enjoy meeting people but being an adult is hardwork" more times in the office and less fun. Training? He looked at Matt confused, "You're training for?" is that his job perhaps? Like a trainer, or something?

I think it's nice to know that Matt's family is very big on music stuff. Sean's family on the other hand is a lot different. Only her mother and him are probably the only ones who enjoy music. His other siblings are just not into it. Maybe that's why he is really close with his mother. "Wow, seems like an awesome family you have there. I bet your house parties must be wild" They're like the Sound of Music, probably.

His other siblings are just not into it. Maybe that's why he is really close with his mother. "Wow, seems like an awesome family you have there. I bet your house parties must be wild" They're like the Sound of Music, probably.

Matt cracked up again imagining this guy's mother dancing to Abba. It was like he wasn't even in the Magical World. "She is cool, see! Abba is BRILLIANT for dancing, we do that in our house sometimes too." We meaning him, his siblings and cousins, mostly. "Great to hear it's not only my family that's mental." He added with another laugh. Only he wouldn't mind if it turned out that his family was the only mental family around. His family was THE best, full stop. And Sean played their songs on repeat!? "Amazing! My sister likes ballads and slower tunes, but yes, we all LOVE these guys too. Any time of music you can dance to is good enough for me, you know?"

"It's a shame you don't play any instruments, mate, it sounds like that'd be right up your street!" Matt said. "You know, doesn't have to be anything dramatic or loud like the trumpet. That one is just for champions like me." He gave Sean a big jokey grin. Lol.

Ohh, so Star Wars was how he bonded with his father. Interesting. "So your dad's a Muggle?" He asked before listening to the rest about Sean's mum. "I see. But she hasn't given magic up completely, has she?" That'd be sad. "My dad's a Muggle, mum's a pureblood witch. Strange combination, I know, but that's life." Matt shrugged with a smile. "That means I'm half, but we grew up in a Muggle village for my dad's sake and I have tons of Muggle friends, that's why I know all about... Muggles! And Muggle music!" Heh.

LOL, Sean thought Matt Solo was cool, see? SEE? Matt thought so too! "I know! Many professors at Hogwarts even used to call me mister Solo." He laaaaaughed out loud again. "Good people, they were. Others... not so much." He finished with a snort.

Always tired!? "What on earth is it that you do, then, that makes you so tired you can't come out for a pint?" Lol! "I'm on my third year of the Ministry's YATI programme. Which means if I pass all of my tests I will be an Auror next year!" Matt puffed up his chest like a proud kid and grinned brightly. Hard work, mind you, but totally worth it!

Alright, this Sean bloke was officially a cool guy. One said good things about Matt's family, they were in for life. "They are brilliant." Matt was a very proud relative, yep. He laughed loudly at Sean's next comment. "Spot on! I bet we annoy our neighbours pretty much every week." And he wasn't even joking. "Well, at least when we're all in the house at the same time. My sister's still at Hogwarts and my brother is in university, so it's only during the summer that we bother everyone."

Sean can't help but keep laughing at Matt's statement, agreeing that his mother is indeed cool. Oh he can remember the times she dances to Abba in the kitchen like mad while preparing for dinner. His father walked in and saw all of that, his dad could not stop laughing the entire time. "so your parents just turn on the stereo and everyone dances in the living room?" Sean asked. He had this imagination of Matt's family in the living room and dancing to songs. Mental, that's the correct description "Oh we are mental alright" he chuckled. "But every family is mental.... in their own way i suppose" Nodding to the latter "that's more of what i like... ballad songs and classical music" Now Matt's sister sounds cool. "Does she play the piano too?"

Sean is just one of those people. Ones who listens and loves music but unfortunately does not play. "I tried playing the piano but it only lasted for like 4 months of training." not his fault entirely, the tutor was too strict and was pressuring Sean a lot to be good every month. He didn't like that. Music is about having fun but the tutor just didn't teach him any of that. "yeah, playing the trumpet may seem like it is hard to learn, no?" he looked at Sean, his left eyebrow raised.

He shakes his head "both my parents are halfbloods" he said. "My mother enjoys her muggle ways while my father enjoys his magical ways" he continued. "Both of them use magic on a daily basis but my mother enjoys her pop music, tv shows, bedazzling your own rocks whilst my dad tells me stories about magical creatures and potions" it was a bit hard to explain this part, to mostly everyone he comes across with and asks about his parents. "it's kinda complicated I guess but if you meet them both, you would agree" he grinned. That... that is definitely a yin and yang pair but opposites do attract so Sean nods at Matt when he spoke about his parents. "that's cool. best of both worlds there."

Mister Solo. Again, niiiice. "Did people get the reference to that?" who knows, maybe some of them caught up. It is a popular movie after all.

"I work in Austria. I have a monday to friday job and a part time job." Well.... "Technically an internship. I got myself a vacation and now i'm back here" and internships are brutal. Since he doesn't get paid he needs at least a part time job to pay for his necessities and that's why he can't really go out for drinks.

YATI programme? oooohhhh. "That's interesting." interesting and awesome. "I hope you become an Auror" best of luck to Matt. Sean has heard that it is hard to become one but of course becoming one is a great achievement.

During the summer that we bother everyone.
Ahhhh, there it is.

"Summer comes annually so just annoy your neighbors away" he laughs. It's true. The important thing is that they are all together and enjoying themselves. The neighbors needs to adjust to it.

Ahhhh, there it is.

"Summer comes annually so just annoy your neighbors away" he laughs. It's true. The important thing is that they are all together and enjoying themselves. The neighbors needs to adjust to it.


Matt chuckled at Sean's question. "Um, yeah, I guess you could say that." It was mostly him and his sister who started the whole thing, really, but the others sometimes joined in. Even if they had to be forced by Matt and Anna, lol. And every family was mental in their own way? "Really?? I must be hanging out with the wrong people then." He laughed. Matt smiled at Sean's next remark. "Yep, sounds right up my sister's street. She also loves the likes of Judy Garland, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. Her pets are even named after them." He snorted, shaking his head. "She does play the piano, yeah. That's her thing. I just mess around."

"I see, you're the lazy kind." Matt laughed. "It was difficult to learn at first, yeah. But you just get on with it and eventually you're awesome and it's no effort at all." He grinned. At least that was what happened to him. Lol, yep, he thought he was awesome at it, sue him

Both of his parents were halfblood. "Oh, right! Sounds normal then." Lol. Probably like most families in the Wizarding World nowadays, Matt would've thought. Although Sean's explanation about each parent's preferences didn't sound as common. Matt pulled a thinking face and nodded as the other guy spoke. "Sounds like a good balance. And look at you now sounding like a big fat Muggle!" Matt added, laughing out loud. And yep, a family like his did give him the best of both worlds. Though it had its downfalls. Some that Matt didn't like to talk about.

Matt had to think whether he believed people got the reference to his introducing himself as Matt Solo. "Some definitely did. I had a housemate whom I called Chewie and he totally understood why. And I think some professors did too, but I don't know which ones and how deeply they really understood it." He snorted. "You know what professors are like, always trying to be liked by their students, so they'll try anything to sound 'cool and interesting'." Which was kind of nice of them, in Matt's opinion. It definitely made him feel happy when they called him master Solo.

Austria! "Blimey, you travelled a long way to come to the pub, mate." Matt laughed once again, clapping his hand on Sean's shoulder. "Are you enjoying being back so far? Same old England. Same old, same old." Lol.

Sean hoped he became an Auror, lol! "Me too, mate, me too. Been working my bum off, so it'd better happen." Hopefully. Surely. Yeah, Matt would be fine as long as there weren't any underwater tasks in his big tests.

Bwahahahha, this Sean bloke was too funny! "I like how you think! That's exactly what we do." He finished, snorting again. "And we're not even sorry.

Huh, who would have thought Matt's family had quirky ways. They just randomly dance altogether. Sean's family never did that, only his mother. Nowadays she rarely does it anymore. She loves knitting. Or so he believes from her letters and gifts mostly. "I guess not to generalize it but yeah each family is mental their own way" he chuckles. Yeah it could be of anything. Like him dating this one girl whose family enjoyed collecting stamps. People no longer collect those right? "Your sister and my mother would enjoy each others company" Sean said. True because based on Matt's list of people, Sean's mother likes the same. "What are her pets?" dog? cat? lizard? dragon?

Sean laughed when Matt said he was lazy. That's part of it but not entirely the sole reason "Not when you have a really strict piano teacher." that woman gives Sean plenty of nightmares. She's scary and it was unhealthy for any kid to learn under her tutelage. "It's great that you found yourself an expert of an instrument" he nodded. "did you ever plan in being a performer?"

Not that his mother completely forgot to be a witch but she enjoys her muggle experiences more. She calls it 'interesting', Sean's dad thinks it's just compensating for the fact that she stopped living as one. That's a longer story. Sean nodded "Well my mom taught me everything i needed to know" he then looked at Matt and asked "Do your parents live here?"

Sean couldn't help but laugh at Matt and his stories back when he was in school. "I like that. You calling a schoolmate Chewie because why not." Sean grins. "School would have been extra fun if everyone got the context but no." he nods. "I think some teachers are trying their very best for all students. They've been handling different types of personalities and that's very hard.So it's nice of them to join in on the coolness." he added.

"Yes, my job is in Austria and they gave me a time off so i came home for a vacation" he nods, hence why he is here in Leaky Cauldron. "I miss Diagon Alley." he chuckles. There's no place like home. "Don't worry about it" having to pass his Auror exams that is. "Everything will come to place" Sean tapped his fingers against the whiskey glass, nodding.

Hey, it's always fun to do things as a family and in Matt's case that's definitely one of those things. "Do you live with your family or are you just like me? Living in an apartment and just comes home during vacations?" he asked.

Like him dating this one girl whose family enjoyed collecting stamps. People no longer collect those right? "Your sister and my mother would enjoy each others company" Sean said. True because based on Matt's list of people, Sean's mother likes the same. "What are her pets?" dog? cat? lizard? dragon?

Sean laughed when Matt said he was lazy. That's part of it but not entirely the sole reason "Not when you have a really strict piano teacher." that woman gives Sean plenty of nightmares. She's scary and it was unhealthy for any kid to learn under her tutelage. "It's great that you found yourself an expert of an instrument" he nodded. "did you ever plan in being a performer?"

Not that his mother completely forgot to be a witch but she enjoys her muggle experiences more. She calls it 'interesting', Sean's dad thinks it's just compensating for the fact that she stopped living as one. That's a longer story. Sean nodded "Well my mom taught me everything i needed to know" he then looked at Matt and asked "Do your parents live here?"

Sean couldn't help but laugh at Matt and his stories back when he was in school. "I like that. You calling a schoolmate Chewie because why not." Sean grins. "School would have been extra fun if everyone got the context but no." he nods. "I think some teachers are trying their very best for all students. They've been handling different types of personalities and that's very hard.So it's nice of them to join in on the coolness." he added.

Sean was amusing. Matt wasn't expecting to have such interesting conversation that day when he went to the Leaky Cauldron. It wasn't often he met people who were up for a good chat. Good stuff! And Matt supposed he did have a point about all families being mental in their own way. "I'm sure they would!" He replied to Sean's comment about his mother and Anna. "She has two dogs and a pygmy puff. Well, the dogs kind of belong to the whole family since she went to Hogwarts and couldn't look after them herself. I would've said that was a pain, but I was away at Hogwarts for most of that time too anyway, and the dogs are pretty great, so I can't complain." Dogs were great to play with, and Anna's dogs were particularly fun, which Matt approved of very much.

"True, you've got to have some fun while learning." Matt always took that upon himself to make things fun if the teacher was a bore. That happened more often than not, to be honest, but he was a pro. If he ever planned on being a performer?? "Nooo, not at all. It was just something we did because that's what my family does, I guess. Only one of my cousins turned out to be a performer, the rest of us are just mere mortals." He laughed.

His mother had taught him everything he knew. "She's definitely a good teacher of Muggles ways, then." Heh. "Yeah, we've pretty local. Greater London, actually. Can't get much more local than that. What about your family?"

Matt laughed, remembering how him and Ace basically clicked straight away because of Star Wars. "Yep, I've called him that since the day we met, actually. During the boat ride to Hogwarts even. So very early on in the whole shebang." Matt chuckled at Sean's remarks about teachers trying their best and joining in on the 'coolness'. "Yeah, it was quite cool of them." Funny too. Lol.

"So what is it that you do in Austria?" The 22 year-old asked, finally wondering what Sean did for a living. He missed Diagon Alley? "It is a cool place to come and chill out after a hard day's work." He totally got where the guy was coming from. And look at this Sean dude being supportive. Matt appreciated that. "Thanks! I think so too." Otherwise he wouldn't be training so hard, lol.

Matt started playing another lighter tune as they chatted and looked up at the smoke the piano was producing to see what it'd do now. "I still live with them, yeah. Much easier that way. I may start thinking about moving out once I finish my training, but I'm in no rush. I don't have to cook for myself at the moment and I want to take full advantage of that for as long as I can." He laughed.

Sean is enjoying himself having Matt as his company. He was planning to engage himself in a new friendship before coming to Leaky Cauldron and look where he is now. Sean is usually the quite kid but he has a sense of getting along with people. He is an introvert but not all the way. "Plus my mother would enjoy more of her company because she plays the piano... Her son, me, tried and failed to do so" Sean chuckled and slowly shook his head. His mother would have loved for him to play but sadly he did not achieve that goal. As for pets, "that's cool. Is it difficult to take care of a pygmy puff? I've seen a ton and they seem okay but having it with you 24/7 is something I've never experienced." he uttered. He did have three friends who used to have them. One of which had a naughty pygmy puff so it could vary depending on the pygmy puff. "How about now? Do you own any pets?" he asked.


Oh yeah, when it comes to music Sean thinks that it's better for it to be learn for fun rather than fear. Some teachers are cruel but then there are some that are free spirited and vibrant. "Wow." he said with glee "that's super cool. What does your cousin play?" Sean added. Hey, he might know who his cousin is.

Sean laughed at the comment Matt made "Oh, my mother will definitely love that" her being a teacher or at least teaching muggle stuff to wizard kids. "she loves being a witch but she loves entertaining people with the muggle ways, like watching a movie in a cinema" just one of the examples if ever she did become a teacher. "Well my parents are living in England and i live in Austria.... for now" he nods. "Makes sense that you're a local and know your Leaky Cauldron fun facts" he laughs. Yes, Matt was very familiar with the guests playing the piano inside the pub. Sean didn't know that.

"That's how you make friends" a great way to make friends. "So do you name your other friends with a nickname or just Chewie?" maybe Matt did. Star Wars is a big franchise with a lot of characters.

what is it that you do in Austria?
Uhm...

Sean replied "I'm a crime analysts in Austria. Kinda like.... Department of Magical Law Enforcement here but i do boring work" yeah because it is mostly paperwork and him presenting data and information to superiors every week with current crime rates and all that. "sounds cool but not really" he laughed but he can't complain. "aren't aurors in that DMLE?" he asked. Sean is not too sure but he remembers it being part of their lesson at Hogwarts.

He nods once again Matt answered him. "That's very true. it's more logical that way." especially that he is training to become an auror. He definitely needs family for support on that one. "A mother's cooking is always the best" no place like home.
