Default North Side of the Street


Diagon Alley runs along a crooked, narrow street. Along the North Side, of course, are the shopfronts. Large glass windows display hot items, special objects, advertise for sales, and encourage people to come in. The path is incredibly tight and overhangs of buildings on either side threaten to touch the building across from it. People walk packed together, as they try to maneuver around groups of people, vending carts, and holes in the cobble road. Be careful of doors opening so that you don’t walk into them by accident.

Outside the Leaky Cauldron entrance is a large, outlandish fountain which threatens to take up the walk. Once one gets around the fountain, the path tightens and the surge of people begins. Bump, jostle, and nudge people as you move around – it's okay, really. Balconies and overhangs create a bright array of color as one meanders down the street. The noise level is cluttered – yelling comes from the hawkers, from the food vendors, from people calling to one and other. Much like a festival, the atmosphere is nearly tangible; electric and festive. Don’t forget to close your eyes and breathe in. Popcorn, kebabs, soup, bread; so many food smells fill the air with a pungent scent.

He'd have to try and remember that.

When Evony explained further, Leander nodded. "You're just working in Ibiza? Seems silly to go to the party island and not, you know, party?" He grinned.
Evony nodded enthusiastically. "I like watching things swim. It's relaxing. Especially the brightly colored fish." she said rambling ever so slightly, which was odd for her. She preferred to keep private things private. Her enjoyment of something like fish was a rather private thing to her.

She laughed lightly at his question. "What makes you think parties aren't part of my job?" she asked with a wink. "People pay to get their clothes seen."

"You do? Because I'm an excellent swimmer."

The words were out of Leander's mouth before he even realised what he was saying, and it was probably a small miracle that kept him from from turning beetroot, because if he'd had a time turner he'd have used it right then. Eyes wide, he stuttered for a few moments before rushing on. "The fish are beautiful, and the coral and stuff."

Was it hot out here?

Looking back at Evony, a part of him wished he hadn't because that wink nearly killed him: she'd single handedly taken something he had always thought of as awkward and cringe worthy and made it cool. "Okay, now I really need to get into this line of work." And he was definitely regretting saying no to what he'd thought of as a prank when he'd been offered a chance a year ago.

Sam knew this Alley like the back of her hand - had done since she was a toddler - and one thing she definitely knew was that it was anything but predictable. Like today, for example...what she should have been doing was going for ice cream, and yet she found herself responding to a call to catch a toad.

"What's its name?" she asked curiously, curly hair bouncing as she jogged to catch up with the guy, boots thudding against the cobbles. A closer look revealed said guy should be a whole lot more responsible than losing a toad. An upcoming firstie with a new familiar, he was not. Still, she could be a good Samaritan and help a dude out. "D'ya have any treats with yeh?"

Evony hid a laugh behind her hand. "Did... did you just say I'd enjoy watching you swim?" Because that is sure what it sounded link. She could tell he was trying to gloss over it. But, being the person that she was, she took a certain amount of joy in teasing people in situations like this.

"Well..." she began casually, "if you're interested, you can come along with to a party or something and I can introduce you to some people." She couldn't make any promises from there, but half of the game was knowing people.

Was there any possible way out of this that didn't involve completely lying or pretending that Evony was going crazy?

Leander really didn't think so, and he was pretty sure that the latter of the two options was definitely offensive. "I might have implied it, yeah." Honestly, until he said it, Leander hadn't realised that he was actually going to admit to something so embarrassing.

What was she doing to him?

"Really?" Shock was evident in his voice, and the raised eyebrow as he looked back at Evony. "You'd do that?"

Evony nudged him with her him. "That was almost smooth." Keyword, almost. But, it was nonetheless endearing. She was going to let it slide.

"I guess I'll have to take you up on that." Because he offered / implied it.

She then nodded again at his question. "Yeah. Of course. It'll be nice to have someone to talk to afterwards." It was always a process winding down after those parties.

She laughed a little at the idea that Quigley could hate kids. He doesn't seem to be able to muster up enough emotion to hate much of anything, but in any case she's pretty sure that's not the case. "I think he has a family of his own.. and I promise I'll keep an eye on her the entire time!" And that's the complete truth, not because she's worried about baby Ari messing up her desk, but because it is the Department of Accidents and Catastrophes and Bambi would like to prevent any... accidents OR catastrophes wherever her daughter was concerned.

She nodded but didn't elaborate any further on the dismissal. She wasn't surprised or disappointed, rather she preferred to think that if Layla would one day decide to surprise her with a yes, she'd be over the moon.


If there was one person who had complete influence over Layla it was Bambi. They had been married a few years now but every time that she smiled at her, Layla’s heart still fluttered and her stomach did the butterfly thing. It was pretty ridiculous that someone had tamed the grumpy, reluctant witch and turned her into somewhat of a sap. A sap with a CHILD. The same woman that vowed that she would never have children because quite frankly she didn’t like them all that much. “Its not like I had the most stable life either.” Layla had a few jobs after she left school as she had no idea what she wanted to do and absolutely no ambition. She settled for being a PE teacher because she loved sport and she thought she would be kinda good at it minus the whole kid thing. But seeing Bambi do well, seeing her be so happy in her new job was sort of persuading her that perhaps it was now her time to find a job that she would love.

And despite her reluctance of being in the Wizarding world there was something in her persuading her to follow Bambi into the ministry. Whether she’d pursue this thought was another matter but it was there in the back of his mind. She didn’t want to speak about it yet in case she decided against it, she didn’t want to get Bambi’s hopes up and crush them by backing out.

Layla trusted that Ariadne would be perfectly fine under Bambi‘ watchful eye, that wasn’t the issue. It was more that in a department called accident and catastrophe’s it was more likely that the child would CAUSE an accident by playing with something that she definitely shouldn’t. “I know, you’re a much better parent than me.” Not that Layla was a bad parent at all, she just wasn’t a natural at it like Bambi was. “Do they have a daycare at the Ministry?” Just in case, y’know?

“Do you want to go get a drink and something to eat somewhere?” All that working must have made Bambi hungry right? And Layla could really do with a coffee in her system right now.

"I think I should probably leave smooth to my cousins," Leander admitted, smiling a little as the colour faded from his cheeks. Of course, not all of the Darcy's were smooth, and compared to some he might actually seem it, but he definitely wasn't.

And he definitely wasn't going to introduce Evony to Cosimo anytime soon, no thank you.

"I'd really enjoy that, Evony," he said with an appreciative smile, excitement growing at the prospect of the parties, but also (and probably more so) of spending some of his summer with her in Ibiza.
