Default South Side of the Street


The south end of the street begins at the playground and stretches on to reveal Gringotts Wizarding Bank and a variety of shops and businesses that will suit the needs of just about any witch or wizard. A mixture of smells, from the coffee at Espresso Patronum to the potions at Madam Primpernelle's, fill the air. Both the young and the young at heart can stock up on items ranging from a new wand to an assortment of magical items that have seen better days. There's even a joke shop for those of you out for a good laugh. I'd think wisely about my choices or words and actions, though! Its cobblestones may be chipped or dusty from excessive wear over the years of being trampled on by many thousands of feet. Large glass windows grab your attention with various signs and merchandise, in attempts to lure you into those shops and spend more money you may or may not have.

Outside several shops are park benches, perfect for a quick chat or rest of your feet. But don't sit too long - these spots are high in demand and you may run the risk of being sat on or someone tripping over your feet. Not to mention that the rubbish bin next to the bench near Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes wreaks of various stenches of items that have been tossed away. Shame because if they hadn't absorbed the smells, one man's junk might become another man's treasure.

Valencia knew a;; about Diagon Alley. The young Ravenclaw considered herself an expert now. She had been looking very forward to showing her younger cousin around. Being the youngest of her siblings, she was pleased that she'd still have the opportunity to be the older cool family member.

It clearly skipped a sibling though. (Poor Connor.)

"Are you excited?" she asked as they walked. Her cousin spent all of her time in Mexico, so she probably wasn't as used to being around English or being in England.

Sardines ♥ // Nomsy, yo

Anna was excited. While this wasn’t her first time to England, it was her first time to Diagon Alley. She had a feeling that her parents had purposely avoided bringing her here so that it could be a Big Deal when she finally went to Hogwarts.

And a Big Deal it was.

She grinned over at Valencia, happiness and impatience all over her eleven-year-old face. ”Yes! Where should we go first? Gringotts?” She’d read all about the bank, of course. And her dad had told her all kinds of stories about it, too. It was one of the things that she was most excited about.

Sebastian had some school supplies restocking to do, and his list was long! How had he used up so much? Well, his little brother and sister did get into his potions kit while he was in Italy, so that was probably most of it. It wouldn't surprise him if they had gotten into his other supplies as well. Especially the parchment. He was going to have to get a ton of that for sure.

Noticing the bench near by, he made his way over and sat down. He needed to add a couple of things for his mother to his list that she casually told him about as he was leaving. 'Oh, Mia cara, could you please pick up some socks and stockings for your brother and sister the keep disappearing. OH! And Humidity Immunity Potion from Madam Primpernelle's. I'm all out. Thank you my angel!' She said in her thick Italian accent. He rolled his eyes at the thought. He felt like a babysitter and errand boy when he was home anymore.

He sat writing down the additions and combing over his list. This would be a long day of shopping for sure.

Valencia loved this look. Since she'd been coming for years, she forgot what it was like to be blown away by the magic of it all.

"Yeah. We can go there and then get your wand?"

Thomas stood staring down the street, to say he always went shopping with his Parents, this was something new, seriously what was going on here, the shops were so tall and in a street. He always went shopping in a shopping centre and that was what he had been expecting here.

He stood staring down the street wondering which place to go to first. He looked up to see his parents staring at him. "I can't make up my mind where to go first." He sighed, "Also do you think they take our money?" He still remembered how he had gotten told about all this and he still wasn't sure if he was dreaming or not.

]Tina wasn't sure how she felt about spending her entire summer in England. She missed France, but she was excited about attending the Quidditch World Cup. That would be fun at least. She wasn't a big fan of the crowds, though! Weaving her way through the throngs of shoppers, she was on her way to Madame Primpernelle's for some new nail polish when she noticed a little kid standing nearby. She did a double take. Had somebody been separated from their group? Ugh, if M. Evremonde found out, she was going to be in so much trouble! Technically she was supposed to be helping with the younger kids, but she needed a break to do her own shopping.

No, this kid wasn't part of the Chateau Croyance group she came with. Tina started to continue on her way when she overheard the mention of money. She sighed. She was probably going to regret this, but she decided to try to help the kid. "Excuse me... I couldn't help overhearing," she said. "If it's wizard money you need, go to Gringotts bank. It's just over there..." She gestured to the towering white marble bulding.

Thomas was standing there staring into space when a voice spoke to him, was it an angel from above, he wasn't sure turning around he smiled politely as he noticed that a young woman was walking his way. "Thanks." Thomas nodded as he nudged his parents, he was still a little bit shy. What if he did something wrong, could he be turned into a frog or something scarier.

Thomas peaked out from behind his mothers shoulder. "Is Gringotts far from here?" Thomas didn't want to have to go hiking halfway back across London just to go to a bank. It would just be awful and very awkward, saying that taking an owl home with him was going to be hard to explain to his mates.

Trinetta was actually doing some school shopping today, not leisure shopping. Which was what she was USUALLY doing. However, summer was winding down and she had to do some real shopping at SOME point. As she walked down the street, staring at her list, she checked off what she had already gotten and what she still needed. She was about...halfway done. Ok. Not as bad as she had thought.

As she looked at the list, a particularly large gust of wind came out of NOWHERE and swooped her list RIGHT out of her hands. Swearing in French under her breath, she chased it as it flew across the street and RIGHT in the face of a boy who was sitting there, looking at his own list.

Sebastian had just finished writing down SOCKS when a piece of parchment smacked him right in the face! "What the!" He said, dropping his own paper and quill when he reached up to take the paper off of his face. He looked down at someone else's shopping list with a grin.

He looked up, noticing a cute blonde girl running towards him. "I assume this is yours?" He said with a smirk. "Next time you may want to tell your paper that I am not a garbage can." He said with a chuckle and handing over her list.

Having spent much of his day trudging around the streets of muggle London, Kaiser had chanced a visit to Diagon Alley, desperate as he was to gather a little bit of wizarding money. It was all well and good being anonymous amongst the muggles, but he really did need some galleons to his name, and he wasn't entirely sure he could get away with exchanging his muggle money at the bank. He needed to be careful; all it took was for the wrong people to notice him and it would be game over.

Looking much the worse for wear, in that he was significantly unkempt and clearly in need of a good shower, Kaiser had taken up a position at the side of the street. His bag was just behind him, the strap wrapped around his foot so that nobody could do a grab-and-dash, and an old hat sat at his feet, the sun glinting off of the coins inside of it. He was playing his guitar - these four chords were really all he needed - and singing a song in Italian with apparent gusto, grinning charismatically at those who happened to pass by, and even more so when they contributed coins.

At the end of his song, Kaiser finished playing with a flourish, then quickly stooped to see how much money had been thrown into the hat so far.

Gunnar was busy this summer. Far more than he had ever thought he'd be. And part of that busyness had to do with his sister and her injury. Not that he resented her at all for it, he felt like it was his responsibility to help take care of his siblings, and he was happy to do it. It just contributed greatly to his summer schedule.

And on this day, he told his mother he'd do a little extra shopping so that Chloe could save a trip to Diagon Alley and they didn't have to make it a whole family thing, which he knew could be a hassle with Morgan. But that didn't mean he would just head there, be responsible, and head back. He could certainly spare a little extra time for his own thing - maybe get some ice cream or hang out with a friend, should he happen to run into one.

Speaking of friends, Gunnar soon caught sight of one of his dorm mates when his attention was drawn to the music being played on the street. He listened for a moment, smiling a bit, as his feet took him that way. Clearly Kaiser was playing for money, which didn't seem to be a bad summer job. If only he could do that with his piano, but it wasn't exactly good for travel. He dug into his pocket for a few sickles and tossed them into the other boy's hat. "Not bad, mate," he grinned as he offered him a bit of applause as well.
