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.

They had lives outside of what they had, and he was respectful of those boundaries. He kept the smile on his face as he listened to her, one of his hands stirring his tea and the other resting on his lap. "Yes, you could say that." Working within Diagon Alley had many perks. It was a convenient place to access all kinds of businesses and shops. "Coffee runs too, when we've ran out of it. We basically live on caffeine." It was the type of hustle that this journalist liked.

He would agree that the fish and chips here in the Leaky Cauldron was great. No argument there. Except his palate was going for something that wasn't his usual as this would be one of his last chances to try a different dish. "I was thinking of a casserole for myself," he shared. Reed opened up his messenger bag to fish out his wallet. "Last chance for you to decide against that lemonade, by the way." He smirked playfully, having noticed her torn looks at the beverage menu.

He was also casually getting out of his seat. Tick tock.
The older she became, the more Ava had realized being possessive towards significant other was pointless and toxic. This guy had taught her to be a better and more mature girlfriend (or person in general maybe) and she was happy to meet him in a first place. Reed Castell was such a package deal; he has intelligence but not using it do degrade someone, super calm, mature and not to mention he was blessed with good physical features.

Merlin, Ava sounded like a biased fangirl.

"You guys are all caffeine addict." The 23 year-old teased him. She didn't really judge because she understood how journalists worked with deadline and coffee was such an energy booster to keep them alive and functional. Weren't most humans all? Ava did take coffee occasionally when she needed but lately she preferred herbal tea to keep her more relaxed.

"Well...." She just chuckled when Reed caught her being torn about the lemonade. "Just order that before I changed my mind." She did want lemonade though.

It seemed to Reed that Ava never failed to gush and say good things about him. Even when he didn't exactly verbally comment nor physically express it, he appreciated the sweet nothings.

Caffeine addict? Reed feigned an offended expression, an eyebrow raised at her comment. "Don't make fun of our caffeine," he said, smirking just a teeny bit to let her know that he was simply joking and playing around. As for her drink, Reed chuckled. "Final decision made. Lemonade it is." And with that, he moved away from his seat.

"But if you want another drink some time later, that is fine too. I'll be back," Reed added. He'd pay for that too. With that said, he disappeared to get in queue at the counter. Luckily there weren't too many people and so Reed was able to reach the front of the line in no time. The service was fast and commendable too, which he was grateful for and that meant neither he nor his girlfriend would starve waiting. A few minutes later, he was walking back to their table with a tray of all their food. Plus a slice of apple pie because he was feeling it.

He was willing to share, of course.

She just loved giving appreciation to him, that included doing small gestures or gushing about her boyfriend. They had been dating for almost a year now, could you believe that? It still seemed like yesterday Reed asked her to be his girlfriend and he had successfully made her to like him more and more. Like? Yes. Love? Errrr... Let's not think about that now. That particular word was too strong and serious for their situation now.

"I'm not making fun of it, just point out the fact that most of you bleed caffeine." The 23 year-old used to work as a barista (and that's where they first met) and she lost count how many times in a day several journalist ordered coffee at her previous workplace. Not to mention this guy usually had the same order when she was there. "Yes, please. A lemonade is enough, sir. And thank you." Ava then watched watched him leaving to the counter and went back with their order. Good thing it didn't take a long time to get their food here because she was famished.

Seeing he got himself an apple pie made her wanted to get some sweet treats too, perhaps after she finished this food.

Enraged, Zerano stormed into the Leaky Cauldron with his eyes as red as a blood moon. Just as the prophecies before had foretold, his presence in the Leaky Cauldron marked its own sort of end times. He was going to show these two-legged ones just how useful their help had been to centaurkind.

Like a troll with a club in hand, the teenage centaur kicked over unoccupied tables and chairs while shattering the glassware. Just as the two-legged ones had shattered their dreams and home.

Default Centaurs + anyone else who wants to play
Rhibear ~ Madam Solo ~ Pirate Princess ~ Gryffinclaw ~ Fiery Phoenix

Vitani needed a break! Sheíd been unpacking boxes of new merchandise for hours, only stopping when the growling of her stomach reminded her sheíd missed her regular lunch hour. Now with her usual order from the Leaky, a turkey cheddar sandwich and pumpkin juice, in hand, she started to make her way to the seating area when the sound of shattering glass caught her attention. Her dark head whipped around in the direction of the sound, and she saw...Blink, blink. Were her eyes deceiving her?

She shook her head and looked again, and it was still there, clear as day. A centaur. In the middle of the Leaky Cauldron. Apparently throwing a tantrum.The shock of the sight nearly made her drop her lunch. A million questions ran through her mind. Where had the centaur come from? Why was he here? And what had upset him to the point of destroying furniture? She had a distinct suspicion that this had something to do with the situation at Hogwarts.

Once Vitaniís initial confusion wore off, panic set in. Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope! This was too much for her. Oh Merlin, she could barely handle her own daughterís temper tantrums. How could she be expected to handle that of a creature several times her size? If the centaur did that to the tables and chairs, she didnít want to know what he could do to her! Oh, what she wouldnít give to be back in New York or Paris or literally anywhere but here right now. But here she was, so she decided to do for the centaur what she wouldíve done for Aliyah: give him some space to get it out of his system.

She backed away slowly and quietly untilÖ CLINK. Her high heels made contact with a piece of broken glass on the floor. The petite African woman stood paralyzed with fear. Had the centaur heard that? What would he do if he did?

Rebecca entered the Leaky Cauldron feeling like a bundle of nerves and if someone just sneezed she was sure she was going to jump out of her skin. She was in just a few minutes going on her first and maybe last ever blind date that had been set up by her best friend since Hogwarts, Amelia. With the ghastly pigeon hat on her head as instructed, the brunette fidgeted with the hem of her dark navy and white polka-dotted dress as she headed over to the bar to get something to drink. Becca sincerely hoped that none of her new ministry co-workers in creatures saw her now. She looked beautiful except for her grandmothers hideous hat that probably made her shot down on the scale of pretty to weird looking in one breath.

Trying to not to think any of the thousand or so thoughts that kept circling around in her head was proving difficult. Becca though waited her turn in line at the service counter, busying herself with perusing the menu. When it was her turn she bought herself a glass of cider before heading to the seating area to sit down. Choosing a table near the fireplace for warmth in the winter chill she couldnít do much, but wait for the mysterious Mr L to arrive.

He wasn't sure how he had gotten here. Well, no. That was not entirely true. He was perfectly aware of how he had locked up the Owl Post for his lunch break and secured all the owls but Nuria, presently perched upon his shoulder with her talons sinking in to the crimson towel draped over his left shoulder, and physically walked here to the Leaky Cauldron. He just wasn't sure how he had been convinced to go on a blind date. He, for lack of better phrasing, simply did not do this.

Dating.

He was tempted to believe that his mates from the Scamander Zoo who had fashioned this whole ordeal for him were pulling his leg. Look for the lady wearing the great pigeon hat? Was he going to leave this 'date' with his cheeks pinched and hideously bright red lip stick smears across his cheeks?

Sighing to himself as he swung open the door and removed his sunglasses to clip them over the collar of his shirt, ZachaŽl looked around for the hat in question.

It truly did not take long to spot...but his eyesight was not nearly as keen as Nuria's who had already swooped off his shoulder and zoomed across the Leaky's seating, talons bared, and knocked the hat square off the woman's head. It was an innocent mistake by the great gray owl. Perhaps he should have doubled up on her breakfast?

....but still.

"Bloody hell," he muttered as he weaved his way through the tables with impressive speed, his hand resting on the occasional shoulder or two as he did, until he was at the woman's side and able to pry his owl off the hat. "Sorry about that she...must have mistaken the hat for some living prey."

Why oh why had she agreed to this blind date thingy? Could she just leave and not do this Becca asked herself as she sat at her table and sipped on her cider. What was she supposed to do if it turned out that this Mr L that she was meeting for lunch today actually was an 80 year old, fat and hideously smelling guy? She probably to save face had to sit the lunch out, but she sincerely hoped the guy was much closer to her age and easy on the eyes rather than 80 and fat.

Becca was relaxing in her seat, enjoying her cider and busying herself with work thoughts when in a matter of seconds her calm became shattered as she heard wings swooping and then felt how sharp talons scraped her head in the process of knocking her pidgeon hat of her head.

"OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUWWWWWWWWWWIEEEEEEEEE!" Rebecca yelped out in sudden and acute pain as she reached up to feel her head for wounds with her left hand as she look around for the culprit. Those sharp claws or no talons she realized in a matter of moments belonged to a big grey owl that now was sitting on her hat. Becca had just pulled her hand down to see if there was any blood when a guy suddenly was at her side apologizing for his owl.

Slightly shocked and relieved that she as it appeared to not be bleeding right now Becca looked up at the man blinking and opening and closing her mouth several times before she asked trying to mask the pain she was feeling. "Does your owl always attack people to protect you from potential harm?" It'd be good to know.

And now that they had the entire pub's attention after that scream...

Not that ZachaŽl was paying attention to any of those external to the current situation, which was him and his not-so-mysterious-mystery woman. Giving a sharp whistle, he made an earnest effort to get Nuria to leave the hat alone and stop tearing the bird from its roost on that hat. Though, honestly, ZachaŽl felt that the snowy owl was doing the woman a favor. It did nothing for her complexion and hid her eyes.

It took two sharp whistles, but Nuria did leave the hat alone and returned to his shoulder where he wagged a stern finger at her.

"I sincerely doubt she found as delicate a creature as yourself threatening," he attempted in lame reassurance as he knelt down beside her and immediately began a rudimentary check of her face and head. "[B]Nuria is a bit spooked still from an incident involving several acromantula invading Diagon Alley a month or so ago. She has been on edge and more nervous than usual. Even more reluctant to be out of my presence..." he continued to explain as he cupped her face a bit. Everything seemed spared from Nuria's talons, save for the hat. "I do apologize. Are you hurting anywhere?"

Talk about an ice breaker. Though, it was quite likely that she was unaware that he was meant to be her blind date this evening. He had not been instructed to wear anything in particular to point himself out - unless she had been told about his luxurious curly locks and dashing blue eyes, that is.

Flaming zouwous it really hurts!

Becca was usually pretty self-conscious to other people's looks and opinions most of the time but not at this current moment. It still felt like she had the snowy owl's claws on her head even if she could clearly see in her shocked state that the owl was perched onto of her hat like it was making a nest. In another circumstance she would have thought it funny, now not so much. The man got his owl to leave hat alone eventually. Becca wasn't a fan of her granny's hat per say but she didn't want it to be shredded to bits. The lame excuse the man offered her as way of apology for his owls actions weren't really reassuring, but it explained things somewhat and it was flattering to hear that he found her delicate. Becca turned her dark brown eyes to look at the owl before her eyes stopped on the man. "I heard about that acromantula invasion. I'm so sorry your owl got frightened. I can assure you that it's being looked into by the creatures departments best officers." It wasn't her area of work, but she could hear with Xia if she could assist in any way.

When the man knelt down beside her to check her face and head Becca felt her cheeks flush at the intimate touch. It wasn't common for her to have a man cupping her face in public. It hadn't happened in years. At his question she took a small shaky breath before responding. "My head hurts where your owl's talons scraped it, but otherwise I think I'm okay, just a bit shocked. I didn't expect to be attacked in the middle of a pub." Now Becca realized the eyes that we're on them and the murmurs. Drawing herself backwards from the man and up on her chair again she said "Thank you for the assist I guess I should go back to waiting for my date now."

In another circumstance she would have thought it funny, now not so much. The man got his owl to leave hat alone eventually. Becca wasn't a fan of her granny's hat per say but she didn't want it to be shredded to bits. The lame excuse the man offered her as way of apology for his owls actions weren't really reassuring, but it explained things somewhat and it was flattering to hear that he found her delicate. Becca turned her dark brown eyes to look at the owl before her eyes stopped on the man. "I heard about that acromantula invasion. I'm so sorry your owl got frightened. I can assure you that it's being looked into by the creatures departments best officers." It wasn't her area of work, but she could hear with Xia if she could assist in any way.

When the man knelt down beside her to check her face and head Becca felt her cheeks flush at the intimate touch. It wasn't common for her to have a man cupping her face in public. It hadn't happened in years. At his question she took a small shaky breath before responding. "My head hurts where your owl's talons scraped it, but otherwise I think I'm okay, just a bit shocked. I didn't expect to be attacked in the middle of a pub." Now Becca realized the eyes that we're on them and the murmurs. Drawing herself backwards from the man and up on her chair again she said "Thank you for the assist I guess I should go back to waiting for my date now."
It had been peculiar indeed, the acromantlas. He had also heard from some of his shopkeeper kin of the appearance of centaurs at the Leaky Cauldron and then bowtruckles causing havoc in various locations. He had little doubt that the Ministry was doing what it could to assist those poor creatures, creatures that the centaurs had confirmed to have come from Hogwarts, but it was unnerving none the less and his owls were consistently on edge from it. Reasonably so.

"I take it you are an employee for the department then?" he inquired gently while he finished up his rudimentary examination of her. He was more than a bit mortified when she confirmed Nuria had grazed her, though he could not see anything that required immediate healer attention so...silver lining?

And then came the awkward duck moment, though thankfully ZachaŽl was not one to quack. "Ah...yes...about that date..." he said while offering his hand to her as a belated greeting and formal introduction. "ZachaŽl Lufkin. I'm the current owner of the Owl Post and...your blind date this evening."

He had good hair and sharp fashion sense, so...forgive him?

Why acromantulas, centaurs, unicorns and bowtruckles among other creatures that normally housed the forbidden forest near Hogwarts had found their way to Diagon Alley was most peculiar and troubling. Becca really felt for the man and his owl and all the other shopkeepers who had been affected by the havoc caused by the creatures out of their normal habitat. Those poor creatures needed to be helped back to their forest, but only if it was safe. She needed to talk to Miss Li about how she could assist for the good of the creatures. Those daily prophet articles she had read up on recently had left her with many unanswered questions.

Looking up at the man Becca nodded in affirmation. "Yes I work for the Creatures department, but Iím in the spirits division and not the creatures one sadly." She wasnít going to let that stop her though. It seemed like the man had at least some healing skills since the examination he gave her wasnít just a simple check that she wasnít bleeding it was more which she was thankful for.

Becca was about to pick up the menu to browse what she wanted to eat when lo and behold the man introduced himself as ZachaŽl, her blind date. Shaking his hand she beamed to avoid the awkward duck moment between them. "Itís a pleasure to meet you ZachaŽl! Iím Rebecca Davies, employee at the ministry and well half owner of that hideous pigeon hat on the floor." That ZachaŽl didnít look too bad and dressed quite well made up for the owl incident and she offered with a hand gesture to the seat across from her. "Please sit. Do you know what is good to eat here?"

It certainly was a peculiar circumstance the Alley found themselves in though not entirely unfamiliar to himself. He had, after all, had to deal with his share of escapees while working at the Scamander Zoo - though certainly nothing to this scale. He still meant to offer his civil services to the Ministry for this, if they would take him. He was well aware that as the owner of the Owl Post and not an official Ministry official that it was unlikely to happen.

"Spirit division, that must be ... " Spirited work? That was too bland an observation that any child come come up with. "...delicate work." Not that his choice of words was much better. He would ask later about how one found themselves working in that particular field, but for now he was finishing up his rudimentary inspection. And clicking his tongue at Nuria who silently fluttered back up to his shoulder and perched herself so half of her was hidden from the woman's view by ZachaŽl's head and neck.

Honestly, that awkward duck was quacking up a storm at the moment and his insides were all knotted and twisted. He was not typically one to make a great first impression, but usually it was not this...messy. He supposed he was quite lucky to have a blind date with someone working in Creatures. At least there was a level of understanding there.

Oh. The hat.

Quickly scooping that up, he dust it off as best he could before offering it to her with an apologetic smile. "I do apologize, on Nuria's behalf. She should be well behaved for the rest of the evening." Nodding, ZachaŽl accepted the invitation to sit and rolled up his sleeves. "Not really," he admitted. Again, he had not selected the location for this but his mates had rejected all of his suggestions so here they were. "I do not tend to eat out all that often...though surely one can't go wrong with a staple like fish and chips."

Spirit division that must be delicate work...

Well she had to give Zachael at least a little credit for trying to show that he understood what it was that she did even when he clearly didn't, unlike the guy she had met in the coffee shop the other day. Becca didn't let her mind go there instead she smiled and affirmed. "Yes, relocating spirits like boggarts and banshees and similar can be pretty delicate work at times. It's quite interesting and fun though since you get to do a lot of investigating too." Why he kept inspecting her when they had established that she was okay confused her unless it was his way of flirting with her?

Thinking about that possibility would just make her blush so Becca quickly changed the subject to something safer. "Have you always loved owls?" She didn't know how else to put a stamp on the relationship Zachael clearly had with his owl that even lead her to attack people to guard her owner. Making a good first impression on any date always made her super nervous, but so far they seemed to have established a mutual like for creatures.

Taking the hat from ZachaŽl she gave it a look over before she unceremoniously dropped it to the floor on top of her purse as she lifted up the menu again. It wasn't hers, she actually detested it, but it was her grandmothers. "I accept your apology. Is Nuria always this protective of you?" Why wasn't her own pet's like that? "I don't eat out very often either but fish and chips sounds delicious. I hope they make it good here."
