Default Flourish and Blotts


About halfway down the north side of the Alley stands Flourish and Blotts, the shop noticeable by its wide picture windows displaying all sorts of gold-embossed spellbooks, any new releases warranting advertisement and the occasional sleeping cat, as the shopkeeper’s two cats occasionally decide to make the window display their chosen napping place when they aren’t underfoot. Upon entry, all that seems to be visible are bookshelves, stacked to the ceiling and absolutely filled with books of all shapes and sizes. While it may look like chaos, there is a sort of order to the shelves and various stacks of books scattered throughout the main floor in addition to those shelved. A table sits close to the door which regularly holds sets of Hogwarts’ required textbooks every summer for the ease of students who may not want to hunt them down on their own, and a staircase, even more shelves filling the space underneath, leads up to a second floor that contains shelves of the various works of fiction from the Wizarding world and beyond.

Near the center of the shop stands the counter, where the shopkeeper can usually be found and which is also the location for the occasional book-signing or other book-related event. Surrounding the counter are displays of newspapers, magazines, diaries, journals and other small items that might interest the literary-minded customer. In addition, a large, leather-bound book rests on a small stand to the left of the counter: an index of all the books sold in the shop for the use of the customers who are in a hurry or simply don’t want to search through all the shelves on their own.

Toward the back of the shop, a door leading to a storage area and the small office used for paperwork and any other business the shopkeeper needs to take care of in private, a cat-door installed as well as the cats’ food and water while they’re in shop are there. Tucked away in various corners of the shop, half hidden by shelves and very cozy, are small reading nooks containing squashy chairs and small tables for a lamp, and a larger reading area including a fireplace can be found near one of the front windows. Enjoy!

"AHHHHHH!" he yelled out.

So much for trying to be cool around potential new friends. In his attempt to dash backward, he tripped over his own two feet and landed unceremoniously on his behind. "Your bad?" he asked the girl. Whoever she was. "That thing tried to eat me!" I mean, technically it was mostly his fault, since he was about to touch it anyway, but whatever.

He sighed and pulled himself up off the ground. "Nah, it's okay. I was going to touch it anyway. But not anymore," he said. If that thing was on his school supply list, he'd just look on with a partner or something.
AHHHHHHHwhat?!!

It sounded like someone was about to have a great big sneeze, but then a loud THUMP seemed to announce that they fell over! Okay, Bernadette would stick her finger in her book and look up for that one. What if they had slipped on a banana peel while sneezing? Hilarity was bound to follow such a scenario.

"Heh," she chuckled at the boy on the ground. He looked fine, and was already helping himself up. No banana peels in sight. She was nonplussed by any of this. "Well it's not MY thing that tried to eat you," she shrugged innocently. "I'm just reading a completely innocent book. Plus, it didn't try very hard to eat you, or it would still be attached to your hand." She gestured toward the Monster Book of Monsters with a flourish of her free hand. "I've heard great things about that one. You just have to stroke its spine, give it a good pet, to calm it down." Yes, her current book had a whole chapter called 'The Interesting But Dangerous Teaching Career of Rubeus Hagrid.' Very helpful chapter, really.

But if no one claims it....right. He was in no mood to entertain the same inquiry again. Not to mention that there would be absolutely no way in which the intended recipient could possible know to come looking for the book here. Could have been an out of country order for all they knew. The thought made his very skin want to crawl right off his bones just so he could polish them, iron his skin, and then reapply it all after a good bath in some fine moisturizer. In fact...his beard could use a bit of a trim to redefine the lines he had going. Or maybe he should pluck the hairs individually to make sure that there was no unwanted stubble left.

....what were the two ladies talking about again?

Wait...where had the book gone?

"Will be able to rule some things out at least," he responded more than a bit distractedly. "More likely than not though, it may be a private delivery from someone's personal owl." Which there was no real means of tracking so they would be up creek without a paddle. But hopefully a well polished paddle.

Polishing. He could think of a dozen areas in the Alley that required a good polish.

"....if you'll excuse me. I must be off."

....to polish.

Charlie passed the girl a quick look that indicated he was not amused. "I don't care if it's attached to my hand or not. I've never had a book even attempt to do that!" he replied. And what made her think he was accusing her book of doing this brutal act anyway? He took a brief look behind him to check out exactly how many people saw him act like an idiot, but right now, it only seemed to be this girl.

Well, he could deal with that.

He listened with interest as she described how to handle the book. "Stroke its spine? Calm it down?" he repeated. "Yeah, uhh... thanks. I wouldn't mind seeing an expert show me how its done, though." Of course this meant her. She'd do it, wouldn't she? She kind of seemed like the bossy, know-it-all type that might. Charlie stepped back (gladly, might he add) and gave the girl a perfect bee-line toward the book, which still looked like it was deciding whether to calm down or take another go at his hand.

Hanna was trying to pretend that her shopping for her sixth year was just like every other year. She was getting her supplies to be ready for Hogwarts. Her sixth year book supplies. But alas she wasn't going back to Hogwarts. Her great uncle Art was going to be teaching her, with her parents input, and it was his list that she had in her hand. She had eyed off the books on the list, but right now she was browsing for books she wanted to read during her holidays.

Benji was wandering the aisles, grabbing supplies from the sixth-year list and fretting about going back to school. It was the first time he could remember feeling that way. School was where he got away from his parents and their constant indifference and/or disappointment in him. It was his sanctuary -- usually. Now, though? Scary stuff had been happening the past few years. Not to mention that his fifth year had been the loneliest ever, what with Penny gone and studying and trying not to die and all that. So... Going back didn't sound very appealing at the moment. He was thinking about that as he rounded the corner and nearly ran smack-dab into Hanna before he caught himself on a display. "Oh! Sorry. Hey," he said, leaning down to pick up a book he'd accidentally knocked off of the display he'd manhandled. "Hanna. How's it going?" He smiled at his classmate. It was nice to see a familiar face.

Hanna felt the bump of a body against her, shocking her out of her thoughts. She turned to see Benji, and relieved it wasn't someone out to pick her pocket or something. "Oh! Hi Benji," she said with a crack of a smile. "Not too bad. How about you?" She didn't feel ready to tell her friends she wasn't returning to school, but she also did want to keep in touch with them. "How's your summer going?"

"Well me neither, but I also don't approach books that could CLEARLY be monsters, or have teeth." She rolled her eyes at this boy, who honestly seemed a bit daft. Was he like, nine or something? Today was his first time in a bookstore, maybe? Heh. "Didn't you hear the book growl as you passed by it?" She shook her head at the daft boy and cracked open her book to her spot again.

She was about to walk off when he seemed to gesture for her to touch the book. Oh, that was easy. She quickly glanced at the page number of her current read, and then handed the book off to the daft boy. This could be his very first book he was holding. How special for him! The she rolled up her sleeves and stepped closer to The Monster Book of Monsters.

Bernie was an expert. She did NOT need to take a deep breath, but she did anyway, and smirked at the boy, as if to show how comfortable and EASY it was to approach the growling book. Bernie scooted right up to the front of it, as if she was going to let it bite her, and then quickly ducked down to stroke the side of the book. She ran one thin finger, nice and eaaaaasy, down the book's spine, and then grinned as it shuddered and fell open.

"See," Bernie announced proudly, "it's so easy, even a caveman could do it!"

Sebastian, still a little out of sorts but doing better, was looking around the book store to find his new textbooks for the upcoming term. He wasn't extremely excited to be going to Beauxbatons. In fact...he wasn't happy at all about it. But there weren't a lot of things he was happy about anymore.

The happy go lucky boy from last year was now...slightly melancholy. But he would get past this. He had to.

His biological father was finally in his life. They had had an amazing trip around Europe together with his soon to be step-father, and he was happy to make that connection.

So why was he just staring at the potions books?

Iclyn wasn’t sure why she was in the bookstore, all of her books would have to be bought second hand or reused from her older sister, same with her robes.. it was both a blessing and a curse that Kali had to drop out of school to get a full time job..

Mostly a curse.. seeing as that left her and Zach to fend for themselves at school.. ugh.. school. She was not at all prepared to go to Beauxbatons, to be around stuffy, stuck up, snooty French kids with a chip on their shoulder the size of Europe..

She gently ran her fingers over the spines of the books as she walked down an aisle, lost in her own thoughts. Her mother loved it in here.. she loved to take Iclyn to the bookstore and they would spend all day picking out a book and finding a cozy nook to sit in and read it and discuss..

Iclyn felt a lump in her throat as she rounded the corner and closed her eyes.. maybe.. just maybe if she closed her eyes tight enough and wished hard enough, she’d be able to see her mother again.

It almost worked.. until she bumped right into someone and her blue gray eyes opened with a start! “Oh! Sebastian!” She said as she looked up at her housemate.. “I’m so sorry. ”

Still zoned out staring at the cover of the fifth year Potions book, Sebastian hadn't realized anyone was walking towards him until the ran into him. Shaking his head and turning to look at the person, a grin immediately rushed to his lips.

Placing a hand on the girls arm, he chuckled, "Hey, Ice. Having the same concentration issues as me today?" He gave her a wink. "No worries. It happens." He said with another grin before pulling her into a hug, one that he probably needed more than he realized. It had been awhile since he had seen Iclyn last.

"How are you? Are Zach and Kali here too?" He asked looking around the store. He knew their family had been through a lot. They had lost their parents and he couldn't imagine what that felt like. Probably way worse than what he was going through but...they were all in the same boat named Loss.

A wide smile moved over her face as she mirrored the one she saw on his. A smile always seemed to help things out. Especially when her nickname was involved.

“Mmmm, it’s looks like it. This place is filled with a bit to much nostalgia as well as people, not a good combination.” She said with a soft grin as she tipped her head back to look up at the handsome boy. “Lost in your thoughts as well? ” She asked softly as she put a hand gently on top of his. He had been through the ringer as well lately.. with losing..

Anyways. It was nice to see him smile.

“Nah, it’s just me today, Kali is working and Zach is giving piano lessons.. and I’m wandering around a bookstore.” Which wasn’t at all helping anyone out.. but she couldn’t do much. As for how she was.

“Pretending to be fine seems to work well most of the time.. and you? ” she knew she could speak to him like that.. because they both had losses in their lives.. and they both knew what it was like to keep up appearances.

He was glad to see Iclyn smile. Her family had been through so much...he was glad to be friends with her and her siblings. At least he had someone to help him get through that understood him.

"Not a good combination at all." Sebastian said with a sigh. He took her hand in his and gave it a good squeeze. But he didn't let go. They were good enough friends that this was normal for them. "Extremely lost. So many memories." He said with a sad smile. It was interesting how a devastating loss could make someone mature so quickly.

Sebastian nodded listening. Poor Kali had to give up school to raise her younger siblings. He wasn't sure if he could handle having to do that. He was amazed at her strength and glad she stepped up for Iclyn and Zach. "Zach still giving lessons, huh? That's cool. He is very talented." He said, whilst also thinking about how cute the brother and sister both were. "Wandering book stores can be dangerous...be careful...you might leave smarter." He whispered to her with a wink and a grin.

The Hufflepuff gave a deep sigh, "Pretending seems to be my best talent these days." He gave her a weak smile before finally picking up that potions book he had been staring at for who knew how long. "Beauxbatons...I can't believe we are going there...I would rather go to a camp and stay in cabins than go there." He rolled his eyes. He knew he was changing the subject...another talent he had perfected over summer.

She was glad for the hand holding hers, despite it being a simple gesture, she could almost feel strength coming from the grip and she couldn’t help but squeeze his fingers back as she held onto his hand almost like it was her last lifeline.

Her smile was sad as he spoke and she nodded as she looked around. “Same, I could spend hours in here with my mom.. before..” She made a bit of a helpless gesture, and she was sure he would be in here with.. her. This year had been too tough on the both of them.. and right now she almost felt like she wanted to cry, something she didn’t do often.. and when she did.. it was alone. She was strong for her siblings in her own way. Trying to always be happy and smiling.

“Merlin yes! He’s so talented, it’s kind of annoying that I can’t help out very much.” She said softly, her adopted brother was something of a pianist prodigy.. and was already teaching and then her sister.. working and trying to pass her exams to become an Auror.. and she was.. here.

Bonus though she was holding hands with a very cute boy?

She couldn’t help the giggle as he spoke and she shook her head. “Smarter? Oh no! Whatever will I do? ” She teased back softly as she nudged him gently.

His weak smile and subject change was enough for her not to comment on anything.

“Mmmm, I’m not looking forward to it at all.. except for the grounds, I hear they are lovely. We should take a walk when we get there, look around together. ” She suggested softly. Would it make things better? Probably not.. but perhaps having something to look forward to would help?

Holding her hand was keeping him anchored to reality at the moment...which is why he had no intention of letting go for awhile. He hoped she was okay with that. But she didn't seem to be letting go or recoiling with disgust at the gesture so...hold tight he shall!

Sebastian nodded giving her a small sad smile. He knew how close her family was, so losing both parents at the same time had to have broken them. But it seemed like they were doing there best to be there for each other. "I met Kam for the first time here...she helped me find all my books." He said in almost a whisper. He could tell Iclyn was holding back tears...and the emptiness in his chest was about to suffocate him. They were a pair...but they were strong.

"He is," he said with a pause, "and I am sure you help them more than you realize. You supporting them and being there for them is just as important." Sebastian gave her a reassuring smile. "Besides we can't all be piano prodigies can we?" He said with a wink and giving her hand another squeeze.

Sebastian chuckled at that comment. "Who knows...maybe you'll be a cheese prodigy." He said with a snort before he could finish the word. Oh it felt good to laugh again. It had been awhile. He was glad they could still joke around at least.

Smiling at the thought, "Yeah that would be nice. We should definitely do that. It would definitely make the place more bearable that's for sure. Besides looking at you all day would make anyone happy." He said with a smirk. No he wasn't the smoothest at flirting...but hey...it was an easy line that was sure to make her smile.

Ohhhh.. Iclyn felt a tug at her heartstrings as Sebastian spoke about how this is where he met Kam. It seemed they both had some memories here and she felt her throat tighten up as she looked at him, her eyes shimmering with unshed tears for him, for her and for the memories that seemed to swirl around them like leaves in a fall breeze.

“Sounds just like her.” She said softly as she leaned forward and gave him a hug.. even though their hands were still attached it seemed like they both needed one.

She pulled back after a few seconds and took a breath.. they both knew how each other felt.. no words of sympathy were needed and it was nice that way. She’d had enough “I’m sorry’s” and pitiful stares to last a life time.

“I hope so.. I want to be there for them as much as I possibly can.” She said softly, and then his next words had a lightness come over her and she couldn’t help but start giggling.

“A cheese prodigy? What would that even entail?” She asked through her laughter as she shook her head.. “Welp, my career is decided for me.. I’m going to be a cheese prodigy. ” She said with a shake of her head as she used her free hand to wipe the tears from her eyes.

And then she heard his last statement and she couldn’t help the little hair tuck she did and how she titled her head to look up at him. “Well you aren’t so bad to look at yourself..” She said with a nudge and a smile up at him.

Sebastian gave Iclyn a small smile and willingly took that hug. He could have taken all the hugs right now and it still wouldn't have been enough, but knowing Iclyn was feeling the same way he was helped. Someone understood him. He knew his family understood how he was feeling because loss was inevitable...but this was his first loss...and probably the worst. "My Kam...always kindhearted." He said with a sigh hugging her tight.

He reluctantly released her as she pulled back. He seriously wanted all the hugs, but knew it would be inappropriate in a public setting to keep hugging her. Plus he didn't want to freak her out. He was glad they had this moment to bond and grow closer. Iclyn was always a good friend and this was even more reason to stay close to her.

"I know so. You are a great sister and I am sure they appreciate you more than you realize." He said with a reassuring grin. Then came the giggles. Her laughter was the cutest thing ever. It made him laugh harder.

"Icy Cheese. It's got a good ring to it." He said trying to hold back another bought of laughter and failing miserably. Man she was beautiful...

And the flirting back...interesting. That didn't happen very often...but he had grown a couple inches over the summer. He wasn't as gangly as he had been last year...plus he had been working out a fair bit. The baby fat was starting to melt away into lean muscle. "Why thank you. I'm so glad you noticed. Been working out." He said giving her a little arm flex before laughing at how stupid he was sure he looked. Kam would have hip check him and told him to stop flirting. The thought made him grin.

Truthfully Iclyn would have taken all the hugs as well, she didn’t often show her grief to others. She didn’t get hugs, or tell her sad story, but with Sebastian it was a bit different, he understood what it felt like, he was going through it too, and so she could let down her walls with him and finally be just a bit more of herself. She leaned into his chest just a bit as he hugged her tightly and smiled as he spoke of Kam.. “That she was, so special. ” Ice knew her, she was Kali’s roommate after all.

She always seemed.. sad. Oh sure her smile was happy, but her eyes were always so sad.

She did indeed pull back cause cuddling in the bookstore would probably be frowned upon, but she kept a hold of his hand as she leaned on the bookshelf a bit.

“I hope so.. I really do. Hopefully next summer I’ll be able to help out a bit more.” It was good to see him smile, it made his face and his eyes light up in a way that was quite enchanting..

She couldn’t help the small snort that came from her nose at his next word.. “Icy,, cheese?” She gasped out as she nearly bent over double from laughing so hard.. “Oh Merlin’s knobby kneecaps.. ” She giggled out as she shook her head.. she hadn’t laughed this hard in awhile!

She smiled as he flexed a bit and she reached up her hand to touch his bicep as he did so. “Ohhh, I can tell! Goodness!” She was a bit shocked and now even a bit more starry eyed as she looked up at him. “You look really good.. working out looks well on you. ”

Very well.

Very very well.. was she drooling?

"Extremely special...and so broken." And he couldn't...no...didn't save her. He still felt extremely guilty about everything that had happened. He knew Kam would shake him for feeling this way, but he couldn't help but feel responsible. He had given her space...when he really should have done everything he could to get her out of the depression she had been in. Kam didn't deserve anything that had been thrown at her.

But that was another conversation for another day. He didn't feel like breaking down in the middle of a book store with Iclyn to watch him. So...back to books and Beauxbatons and cheese, at it were.

"And I am sure once summer comes around you will find something and they will be even more grateful for you." Sebastian said with a wink and a grin. The optimistic Sebastian was in there still after all...even if he was a little sadder.

Her snort made him laugh so much harder he almost fell over into a stack of books, but luckily caught himself on a chair nearby. He took a deep breath to stabilize his laughter and giggled out, "Hey it could be a good gimmick. Cheese that cools you down in the summer?" That actually wasn't a terrible idea. Plus, cheese. Everyone liked cheese.

Sebastian tried not to grin at her obvious appreciation of his new muscles, causing him to give a slight smirk. "Thank you," he said biting his lower lip a little with a grin. "Genetics help a lot too, my dad being Professor Wayland and all." He said with a grin. He actually hadn't told anyone but Kam that yet. Oh, well. It was going to get out eventually.

"Genetics help a lot too, my dad being Professor Wayland and all." He said with a grin. He actually hadn't told anyone but Kam that yet. Oh, well. It was going to get out eventually.
Her heart seemed to be doing some weird things all in the space of a few seconds, first it went out to him, and almost broke at the look in his eyes and the sound of his voice as he spoke of Kam.. she knew that sound all to well and she bit her lip just slightly as she squeezed his arm but didn’t say anything. She didn’t have to, he knew she was there for him.

Next her heart was grateful for his words about her family and her feeling so useless this summer to them, if she had been able to get a job,. Maybe Kali would be able to go back to school. “I hope you are right.. I want nothing more than to be helpful to them. ” She has already decided she was going to go into the ministry right after she graduated.. doing what she wasn’t so sure but.. something to earn money and help support her family.

And then his laugh made her heart feel so happy, she hadn’t felt this happy in such a long time and she too nearly fell over as he did! “Be careful!” she laughed out as she reached a hand out to him and then fell back against a bookcase as he spoke again.. “Oh.. Merlin.. I.. can’t breathe. ” She wheezed out... “Icy.. cheese..” She couldn’t. Oh Merlin she wasn’t going to be able to stand up much longer..

And finally.. her heart was beating so hard as she looked up at him, like it wanted to pound out of her chest as he flirted with her!

Oh lord.. not the lip bite.. she felt like she was having palpitations at the moment and her eyes might be literal hearts.. did he have sparkles around him?

“Wait What? He’s your dad?” Her sparkle filled haze seemed to lift for a moment as she looked at him. This was new information!

Sebastian...ever the optimist, even in times of heartache, knew Iclyn would have a great future. "As long as you want it and work hard, you'll have it. I just know it!" He said with a grin. He wanted her to be happy and he knew she was already doing her best to get there and be helpful to her family.

"Pfft you be careful!" He said laughing so hard he could barely breath. He took her hand when she reached out for him, and was glad that the book case she was leaning against was attached to the wall and didn't fall over behind her. "Heh, Icy Cheese. I'm gonna call you Cheeselyn from now on." He said with snort...and out came the giggles again. Heavens...he couldn't help it.

Sebastian noticed she seemed to be completely enthralled by his flirting...and he really liked that. Maybe his skills were improving...

Then she asked about the whole dad thing and was grinned. "Yeah...found out last summer. Apparently, he and my mother were engaged at one time, which she never told me, and somethings happened and they broke up and along came me. She never told him though. So, he had no idea that I was his kid until Kam and I went to visit him and Professor Kennedy over winter break. I spent most of my summer with them traveling around Europe." He ran a hand nervously through his hair. He hadn't really talked to anyone else about this and he was sort of nervous of what people would thing. "My mom is Italian so I look more like her but my Italian family are a bunch of shorties." He said with a grin. He was almost six foot now.

After a more than convincing argument to go to Diagon Alley without her brothers, or if it just seemed to work out this way due to work schedules and whatnot, Andy was quite pleased to be out and about with her Father. Specifically heading towards the book shop in order to find anything, anything at all, regarding the art of the French language. Her first term at Hogwarts... well, it was a term... but moving forward, she wanted to be a bit more prepared when it came to the magical institutions and what challenges they may bring.

Like French.

"Can we go to another book store if they don't have anything here?" she asked, already scanning every book's spine nearest to her as they walked into the store.

There were still sparkles around him, every time he spoke or looked at her her heart did this weird thudding thing and then she felt her mind go into a daze for a moment. Especially seeing him smile. His smile was incredible and it was so nice to see it again..

....

Oh! He was speaking! She blinked a bit as if trying to snap herself out of the hazy filled pink daze she seemed to be in, but it only dulled a bit. This... could be a problem.

“Thanks, I really hope so.” She said softly as she pushed some of her hair behind her ear.

She shook her head as she giggled and he took her hand, she held onto it to make sure she wasn’t going to go tumbling down onto him! Which wouldn’t be a bad thing in her mind, but not in the bookstore!

“Noooo! That’s like the worst nickname ever! That’s not cute!” She said with another giggle that got even louder as he snorted. Even that was cute! “I’ll have to make up a terrible nickname for you then!” She wheezed out as she swiped at the tears coming down her face. First Icky and now Cheeselyn? Gah!!

She tried to calm down a little bit as he started to talk about his dad and she listened enraptured to his story. “Oh wow, that’s so cool though, having a hidden dad, I mean.. it would have been stressful, but Professor Wayland seems like he’d be so nice about that sort of thing! ” She said with an encouraging smile.

“Well, I’m glad you got his height! How was traveling over the summer with him and Professor Kennedy? Are they cute? They seem like they’d be cute together. ” She said with a grin.

"How's your summer going?"
"Oh, you know. Not too bad. It feels a little early to be shopping for school supplies, but I got in a fight with my mum this morning and just had to get away from her." He shrugged. No big deal, really. Happened all the time. It had bothered him much more when he was younger than it did now. "How about you? Anything interesting happening this summer?"

"Ah," she said. "That sucks." She paused for a few moments. "It's weird being back home sometimes. Not like at Hogwarts where it's pretty easy to get away from people." She was experiencing it a lot currently. She was sixteen, and had the hottest room in the attic after her parents thought that perhaps she didn't want to be sharing anymore. At least she could go up there, but it still wasn't the same distance she could put as Hogwarts.

She bit her lip, thinking for a second, looking at her shoes. "Um, well actually yes. M-my parents decided that Lena and I aren't going back to school." She and her sister had been mixed on the decision. Not being able to have a say in it had been frustrating, especially as she was only two years from graduating, and had her Prefect badge to think about. But she had struggled though the year, with everything that had happened. And her life-goal of becoming a Wizengamot wasn't going to happen if she failed to get into a Wizarding Law degree. "So... yeah." She looked up and shrugged. "My great-uncle used to teach at Hogwarts and he's going to do the bulk of our tutoring." It was disappointing not being able to be around her friends, but at least there wouldn't be any threats around.

"Can we go to another book store if they don't have anything here?" she asked, already scanning every book's spine nearest to her as they walked into the store.
Really, there was no convincing necessary when it came to a private outing for more literature and he could think of at least 30 right off the top of his head if he were to be put on the spot. Though one of his personal favorites was always the ability to develop critical thinking skills through reading. Something he wished both of his sons would indulge in more, though he was satisfied with either of them picking up a comic book. A book was still a book, after all.

Andromeda was special, however, and he absolutely REFUSED to acknowledge that that may have something to do with the fact that the Sorting Hat had placed her in Ravenclaw. REFUSED. He still had the occasional night sweat about this. But Andromeda's bits were clearly from the same star that had provided the bits that had created her father and he was more than happy to take her to any bookshop she wished.

"As many as you want until you are satisfied," he grinned while giving her hand a small squeeze. He knew these days of holding daddy's hand were numbered and he surprised even himself in wishing to indulge in it. "....the language section is...this way," he noted while steering them both down another row of books while skipping over such titles as Mermish Murmurings and Trolltastically Trollish. "You know your lessons are to be taught by your Hogwarts professors, yes? In English."

Just in case that was the motivation for her sudden interest in the language.
