Default Godric's Hollow


The quaint village of Godric's Hollow can be found in the West Country of England. It is a small community, yet it is famous location for a variety of reasons as it has been inhabited by a number of notable wizards and witches -- Godric Gryffindor, Ignotus Peverell, Bowman Wright, Bathilda Bagshot, the Dumbledores, and the Potters all were known to have lived there. While home of a relatively large number of wizarding families, public displays of magic are still prohibited to avoid disturbing the aloof Muggles that also reside in the village.

A narrow road leads to the centre of the village, with look-a-like cottages on either side of it. In the centre of the hollow lies the village square featuring a war memorial that, for wizardkind, transforms into a statue of James, Lily, and young Harry Potter. A post office, pub and inn, and various little shops surround the square, bringing the village a source of income. Located close to the village square stands St. Jerome's Church, which has an accompanying graveyard (rumoured to be haunted) that contains the graves of Muggle and prominent wizarding families.

Besides the statue in the village square, Bathilda Bagshot's home and the Potter cottage are major wizarding landmarks. Bagshot's home has been restored and turned into a museum that wizards and witches can tour and purchase her esteemed books. Down the street from Bagshot's home at the edge of the village is the Potter's two-story cottage, which still remains in its ruined state.

"L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you"



Emilia Espinosa (TakemetotheBurrow) & Fiyero Jones (MadMadamMalfoy)

A Quaint Salsa experience, and a Potter Exploration!:
Meet your date in the quaint village of Godric's Hollow, in the West Country of England. In the cool, February a spot has been set up in the Village Square and you'll meet your Salsa Teacher (NPC). What better way to break the ice with your date than to be asked to step close to your date, and hold hands. They will guide you through some moves before leaving you to practice your moves with Salsa music playing from a muggle-looking radio.
Once you are quite finished with your fun, perhaps a rumbling belly, it's time to seek out your picnic. Look through the town, in the cobblestoned alleyways, through the Cemetery, and perhaps into some of the ruined homes where your picnic for two awaits.

What was she even doing here? Emilia didn't date. If she was being honest, she didn't do much other than work out and study these days, her focus on excelling in every aspect of YATI training. It drove Rosie crazy and as well intentioned as her older cousin was, this wasn't exactly the way she'd planned on jumping back in to the dating scene.

After spending ages picking an outfit that showed she'd put in effort, but not too much effort, the brunette turned up at the meeting spot and waited for the guy to show up.

...He would show up, wouldn't he? She might not be focused on the dating thing much these days, but she wasn't sure she could handle being stood up.

Spotting a man who looked a bit older than she'd expected, Emilia approached, only to find out he wasn't her date, but a salsa teacher sent to instruct them on some moves.

...OF COURSE.

This was all Rosie's fault.

Fiyero Jones did not do dates! He didn't see the point in it. There was only one girl he'd ever loved, and she walked out of his life without having any idea how he felt. He tried to hide his broken heart by moving halfway around the world and throwing himself into his quidditch career, but his family decided it was time for him to put himself back out there. Unfortunately, their idea of "getting back out there" meant pressuring him into signing up for a blind date! He was only supposed to be back in the UK for a couple of days to celebrate his dad's birthday. Now thanks to his idiot cousin, he was standing in the middle of Godric's Hollow. Seriously, Killian needed to stay out of Fiyero's (nonexistent) love life! He thought he was being a wingman, but all he did was make everything weird.

Fiyero had briefly considered not showing up to his date, but that wouldn't be fair to the mystery girl. It wasn't her fault his cousin was an idiot! So he was here. He'd even made an effort to dress nicely for the occasion in a blazer, jeans, and a blue button-down shirt that matched his eyes. Merlin, what a weird place for a date! he thought, looking around the square. He saw a young woman about his age. It seemed safe to assume she was his date; she was the only woman he saw.

He approached her with a friendly smile. "Hi," he greeted, offering a handshake. "So I guess you're my date?" Smooth, Fiy... real smooth, he berated himself. "I'm Fiyero Jones; you can call me Fiy for short. What's your name?"

"Hi." Hello. So this was him then, the date her cousin wanted to know all about. She studied him as she took his hand, returning the shake. His eyes were striking, that was for sure. He seemed to be in good shape, athletic build and all. His smile was kind which was somewhat reassuring, but all of these things didn't make the awkwardness of a blind date go away, not completely.

...Also she really wished the salsa instructor wasn't watching this from a few feet away, making her feel like she was on one of those muggle television dramas she'd heard about. She couldn't shake the feeling he was amused by all this and that made her want to shoo him away immediately.

"I'm Emilia Espinosa. Emmy works, too. It's nice to meet you." She looked over her shoulder as music started to play, eyebrows raised as her gaze returned to the guy standing in front of her. "..Can't say I was expecting dancing on this date. You?" It wasn't that she was horrible at dancing or anything, either. It was just...up close and personal in a way she hadn't expected to face.

For a fleeting moment, Fiyero wondered if he approached the wrong girl, but thankfully that didn't happen. Phew! Nothing like a case of mistaken identity to make things super awkward... even more than the usual awkwardness of a blind date! So far, so good, he thought. It was only when his date returned his handshake that he got a good look at her, and he noticed she was quite pretty... nice hair, warm brown eyes. She was beautiful; she just wasn't her.

His smile twitched as she spoke, and he nearly burst out laughing. She had the same name as his aunt. What were the odds of that?! As if things weren't weird enough... He caught himself just in time. He wouldn't want her to think he was laughing at her or anything rude like that! "Emilia... I'm very partial to that name," he said. If she asked, he'd tell her why, but somehow 'hey, you have the same name as my aunt' didn't seem like the type of thing to say to break the ice. "The pleasure's all mine."

Fiyero had almost forgotten about the dancing part of the date until the music started. He shook his head. "No, can't say I was either," he replied, "but what I can't figure out is why salsa dancing in the middle of Godric's Hollow, of all places?" Those two things didn't really go together! He laughed sheepishly, running a hand through his hair. "I must admit I'm more used to the quidditch pitch than the dance floor." He'd never had any reason to learn to dance (unless you count the stuffy Christmas party at Hogwarts back in his fourth year), but he was pretty coordinated so maybe he'd do okay.

"But that's enough about me," he said, offering Emmy his hand as the song started. "Why don't you tell me about yourself?"

It was a family name, hers was. Her great grandmother had claimed it, it was her own mother's middle name, and now hers. A tie that bound her to the past, and one she quite liked the idea of passing on.

She laughed too, the odd couple that was the location paired with the type of dance they were learning not lost on her. "So you're a quidditch player, then? Can't say I'm any good at that." She was alright on a broom, but never bothered to immerse herself in the sport. As for dancing, "I know a few moves, but we'll both be beginners here, it seems." Luckily the instructor seemed eager to jump in and help.

She took his hand, noting that the instructor had moved forward to correct their posture, their hold. Yeah, this wouldn't be weird at all... Smiling a little uncomfortably, she tried her best to focus on both the conversation, and the few steps the man was demonstrating to their left. Well, I just started at the ministry, actually. I'm a first year in the YATI program." It was a lot of work, but she was enjoying it so far. "And I guess I'm just trying to get used to the area. I was in Spain for a while before now."

Talia had arranged to meet Charles in Diagon Alley, and then apparated them both in three steps until they arrived in the alley next to the pub in Godric's hollow. Paranoid? Maybe, but Kai had taught her to be cautious when it matters, and this mattered.

"Okay, here we are, Charles. Do you need a minute?“ Apparating three times in quick succession wasn't for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach after all. She steadied the older man, her husband's long-time mentor, and smiled at him affectionately, though her usually warm and gentle blue eyes were serious and there was a tension in her bearing that was unusual for her.

"Its a pity we couldn't floo." She added. "There's the back door, we can go in the pub that way." It lead to the same corridor as where the pub bathrooms were. They could go through and get a table from there.

Charles had not felt the threshold from his 60'S into 70.

He hadn't even felt it when he had hit 75.

But now, at age 77, he was beginning to feel the strain of his age despite still maintaining his sprightly demeanor. Though not with aches and pains in his joints, there was a perpetual state of weariness that he battled through day-to-day and seemed to only find relaxing solace in the cups of tea Alphonsine affectionately provided him.

"No no, I am fine," he assured Talia with two gentle pat pats on the back of the hand he held. Two pats and then a fatherly rub over her knuckles before stepping away from her to take in Godric's Hollow for a bit. It had been quite some time since he had last been here, a family excursion with his grandchildren so they could breathe in history for a bit. Though Rebecca had been more interested in picking clover and daisies to make flower crowns than listen to Charles speak. "Still plenty of juice left in this old joints of mine."

He was not sure why all these additional precautions and measures of hers, but Charles was always willing to humor and go a bit above and beyond for a Trent.

"What, my dear, is wrong with the front?" he asked, the smile on his lips not quite reaching his eyes today.

"If you're sure." Talia answered. She opened the door and the low hubub of voices spilled into the alley. She looked back over her shoulder.

"The fewer people who know you're here the better." Talia answered. At the same time though, it was better in a public place, just in case.

She led the way inside, picked a table in a more secluded corner and made a beeline for it.

He was and he hoped that the smile he wore accompanied by the slight straightening of his posture helped put any lingering concerns of hers to rest.

"Just my personal assistant and Fletcher have been formally informed as to my whereabouts," he nodded while rubbing his palm along his scruffy jar. Victoria too, to a degree, though he had simply informed his partner (girlfriend felt like such a teenager term for people their age) that he would not be able to join her for lunch today due to a previous obligation. "Ministry protocol, as I am sure you can understand."

Her behavior was peculiar and veering towards unsettling. Needless to say but...Charles' paternal instincts were tingling.

His lengthy strides had him arriving at the table before her which then allowed him to pull out her chair for her. "Have you brought your children here yet? Seeing as they are both strapping young Gryffindors in the making, it may be an enjoyable little weekend trip for them."

Except that whoever his newest PA and the senior undersecretary wouldn't know that this was the final destination, since Talia hadn't told Charles this herself, the multiple apparition stops helped with that too. Knowing that Charles was in her company was something she could accept though, so she nodded back. "Of course."

She sat, smoothing the skirt of her dress, "They've been to a reenactment weekend here." It had appealed to their innate sense of drama, though Mavis had ended up overly distraught, carried away with the sheer tragedy of it all. Still, it had been a successful family weekend..... when that had still been an option.

Her expression clouded at the thought. "I need to talk to you about Kai." She would have continued but a waitress came over and caught her attention. "Elderflower soda, please."

Charles, thankfully, maintained a steadiness there with Kaiser still. The young man was a hard-working and determined individual who Charles had formed a very affectionate attachment to the boy. He needed invite the boy out to dinner or lunch again soon, now that he thought about it. And perhaps speak to Fletcher again about continued to make Alphonsine a more permanent feature as the Senior Undersecretary's personal assistant.

"Ah yes, an outstanding feature of Godric's Hollow," Charles beamed while pushing in her chair and then settling in to his own opposite her. There was a ribbon severing ceremony of some sort Charles was meant to oversee soon...but the details were getting lost in the sea of other paperwork accumulating on his desk.

"And a ginger ale for me, please," he smiled at the waitress, waiting until she had shuffled herself back to the kitchen before his eyes settled upon the brunette sitting across from him. "Oh? Planning something romantic just for the two of you?" He was giving her a cheeky knowing grandfatherly sort of look, the twinkle in his eye not as vibrant as it typically was but still present. It would explain all the secrecy, after all. "Now you don't need to worry about young Mavis and Kale. You know they are more than welcome to stay with me any time you need."

"It isn't that, Charles." Talia didn't quite cut him off, she respected the man far too much to do so, but the look he was giving her was so at odds with how she felt right now and what was going on that she couldn't entertain it for a second. Before continuing she cast muffliato around their table, not willing to take chances.

"That man is not my husband." A pause. She rolled her wand on the table beneath her fingertips. "I am not speaking in metaphors, I mean literally. Something is very wrong, and I don't know where Kai is or what happened to him, but whoever is the headmaster at Hogwarts is not him and hasn't been for a long time." This past year in particular had been a nightmare, Talia wondering if she was crazy, and then connecting the dots together, and knowing that most people would never believe her. Then at the forefront, concern for her children, and of course all the other children at that school.

Making it obvious that she knew to whoever this imposter was seemed like a bad choice, something that might put her at risk too, but especially put Kai at risk of he was..... still alive at all. Tally took a deep breath. He surely was, as a source for the constant polyjuicing that was happening, Kai had to be alive, didn't he?

"Whatever is going on, it has to be connected with that Azkaban break out, and those kidnappings. Perhaps there were even more kidnappings that happened at that same time that were never discovered. That graffiti that the new outlets reported on. Maybe the floo network being a mess is related too. I expect there are other things that the ministry is keeping quiet that I don't know about. I don't know, Charles, but it's big, whatever this is. And you're probably in danger yourself." At least he seemed to be himself still, it was a stark contrast to how Kai was.

Oh? No romantic get away and him the honor of baby sitting privileges? Charles feigned a lack of disappointment and instead continued to give Talia his undivided attention. Though his heart lamented for her. It could be so difficult when the fairy tale romance began crumbling from the inside. Though creating such an elaborate conspiracy theory, one that she was implying was all happening right under his nose and him utterly blind to all of it... it was upsetting. Particularly when she insulted the integrity of his Ministry.

"Your husband and I have been in constant contact, Talia," he assured her. "As we always have." Though Alphonsine did handle a lot of the communications these days to free Charles up for more important matters, he did still get opportunity to consult the man on more serious topics. "Nothing out of the ordinary and certainly nothing that would tie him to Azkaban. That is a cold trail, my dear. My regret is that Roller was assassinated right there in my Ministry." Guilty as the man may be, he did not deserve such a demise. "I have also been assured by my new head of Magical Transportation that a solution is coming with the floo networks and an estimate to have them all up and running well before the New Year." He regretted greatly letting Kendra go, though Simone had delivered on every task...just as Alphonsine had assured him she would.

He reached over and lay one of his weary hands atop her own and affectionately brushed his thumb over the back of her hand as a father might do while lulling a child to sleep, the twinkle in his eyes sincere as he spoke and fully believed everything he said. "I am in no danger. Everything is fine. All things are as they should be, for the greater good."

Default The most belated reply ever just so there's a response for posterity ;_;

The look on his face was an unusual one, given the circumstances. Constant contact and he hadn't noticed anything wrong? That didn't make a lick of sense. The assurances did nothing to assure her whatsoever, usually she trusted Charles to take her seriously and not patronize her. Talia looked down at their hands, his careworn gentle one, and her own, small underneath his thumb. A chill spread up her spine as he spoke again and Talia slowly looked up to study his face. He had seemed himself until this moment. It wasn't like with Kai where it was obviously NOT Kai. This was something else.

The greater good.

Thinking of her children, Talia made a split second decision and put her acting skills to work, offering him a dazzlingly warm smile to cover her alarm.

"I trust you." She could say that with conviction because it used to be true. "You're right of course! Silly me. I'm just being silly. You'll forget all about this, won't you? Me being silly. Please keep this between us, its just so embarrassing!" She carefully pulled her hands free and fanned herself, then gave his old hands a few gentle pats.

"Actually Charles, I'm suddenly feeling a little unwell. Women's troubles, you know. Maybe I should go home and lay down. I'm sure I'll be thinking clearer after a wee rest."

His thumb continued its soothing movements across the back of her hand and eventually accumulated in another affectionate squeeze. "You love him, Talia. It is only naturally to worry. And a man in his position has much on his plate and many stresses. After that storm too...there were many a misguided parent blaming him for what had happened at Hogwarts, as if the man or that staff had any control over where the magical storm would land." He shook his head and rubbed his forehead with his other hand and even went so far as to pinch his nose as though beginning to nurse a migraine. Though his hand stilled soon enough and moved to hold hers, cupping it between his significantly older ones. "I will never call you silly for caring, misplaced or not."

And then his eyes lit up a bit. "Oh! A little brother or sister for Kale and Mavis, is it?" he spoke, presumptuous as ever, the twinkle returning to his eyes a bit as he gave her hand one last gentle squeeze before releasing her. "Please, don't let me keep you and do rest up." He would finish his drink and perhaps take a walk around Godric's Hollow before returning to the Ministry. He had the urge to visit the cemetery suddenly.

Default hah. I did it. Only like... yk, a term late. But whatever. I FINISHED AN RP SCENE.

Yes yes. The magical storm. This felt like a whole new kind of magical storm, a worse and more insidious one. She would never blame her husband for either of those things. She knew how much he cared about the children he was responsible for, how hard he worked, what he gave up with his own family in order to protect those children....

…a baby. A horrifying suggestion all things considered, namely that her husband hadn't been her husband for long enough that any baby wouldn't be his at all. Talia smiled weakly and stood up. "Please, enjoy your drink on me." She placed a few coins on the table to cover their drinks and added, "We'll do dinner soon, Charles."

With that she quickly left. Now what? What could she do? Who could she talk to? Who would believe her?
