Default Fountain

What might be a work of art, or is possibly what nightmares are made of, is the fountain outside the Leaky Cauldron. Large, gaudy and rather obnoxious, it is most definitely a centerpoint of the area. Built of crumbling stone, the fountain is tall and contains three tiers. Starting at the bottom, the fountain has a three-foot high wall. In the center and serving as a support beam is a water serpent that rises from the pool and to the very top. Winged cherubs with wicked looks in their eyes hang off the serpent and dragons peer from around his climbing body. If it feels like the dragons and cherubs are watching you, it’s because they probably are. One cherub has been missing his head for centuries. Cherubs and dragons alike spit water in many directions, sometimes at different intervals, creating a beautiful display when sunlight catches the dancing water.

However, the fountain is not merely a great sight. Perhaps it is haunted, or maybe cursed, for the fountain has a tendency to spit water at people. Those who loiter too long may find their faces wet. Try to sit down on the edge without dropping a coin and you may find yourself doused with water. However – do not try to outsmart the fountain. Dropping muggle money won’t buy you any time. On the contrary, those who drop muggle coins will find themselves pelted with coins.

Oh, and just a warning. Don’t try to stick your hand into the water, especially in hopes of grabbing some money from the bottom. Creepy things with tentacles would love to bathe with you.

Digging for a couple of knuts to drop into the fountain, a girl with bright red hair parked a bag of her things on one of the benches around the landmark. Her shopping was halfway done, and she took this opportunity to look down into her bag at the items she had already collected. She had six galleons left, and had almost finished her shopping list. As always, she was saving Everchanging Inks for last, because she knew all of her money was going to be blown there.

Reaching into the pocket of her jeans, the girl pulled out a small box of fudge flies and popped a couple into her mouth, discarding the box back into the bag. A fluttering of feathers almost surprised her as a pigeon perched itself on her shoulder. She didn't have to look twice to know it was Pigeon, who had probably followed her to Diagon Alley after sending off letters this morning.

"You're too late," she said to the bird, "They're all gone, and you weren't going to get any anyway." The bird cooed shortly and moved down onto the bench next to her.

The girl was wearing a longsleeved black shirt. Despite the heat, it was made of a thin material, and a light breeze was all she needed. The heat didn't bother her, in any case. Not like the cold. She took this few minutes to relax before she knew she needed to head down to the Menagerie to pick up food for Pigeon and Kit. The ferret had been left home since she was doing her shopping by herself. No need for the little fuzzbutt to cause trouble. But Pigeon had obviously taken the liberty to come see her. That was different. The owl substitute was frequently out by itself, and the girl didn't worry.

She watched the people pass by, absentmindedly checking through the items she had already purchased. New things were always a thrill.

She did that sibling thing. The thing both her and Rigo did. It was obviously cuter on her though. Everything was cuter on her. There were eyes being closed and peeking and then throwing. Goodbye coin. Goodbye bowling experience. Maybe next time. "I don't know.. What did you wish for?" Did she know that if she told..it wouldn't come true? Did she know that? Was she aware of these things?

He bet she was.

Lincoln Darcy had a genius for a girlfriend.

"Nuh uh." Was he serious? Telling him what she wished for went against the first rule of making wishes! She zipped her lips up and tossed the imaginary key into the fountain too. "If my wish comes true, I'll tell you what it was." Pi grabbed Lincoln's arm with both of her hands and grinned, "It's your turn now." And then they could go get ice cream, right? Is that what he was going to wish for?

Go on, Linc. Go on. GO ON. MAKE A WISH.

With a black cat, named Vader walking by her side, Paloma looked around the alley, trying to figure out what to buy next. She had most of her books ready, along with more notebooks for her journals and a few jokes she was going to play on her friends from the drama club she was hanging out with this summer. All innocent, of course.

"Where to go, Vader? I mean, we have about three hours left before going back to the real world..." Sad, but true. There was a show that night, meeting with her sister and family, and then leaving back to the road...

She looked at the map in her hands and thought she could buy Vader his kitty treats.

So she was clued in on all of the wishing rules. Cool. Kudos. He still wanted to know so he was hoping that it came true. "Promise to tell me?" He'd get her more sweets if she did. Just like her birthday sweets. You know...when he'd eaten a lot of them and then played her song to her. He was adorable. Button like.

His turn now.. Linc looked down at the coin in his hand, closed his eyes super tight and threw it into the water. BYE COIN. BYE WISH. COME TRUE PLEASE. New house please. Own bedroom please. Big garden please.

"Promise, promise, promise." Pi stood on her toes and kissed Linc's cheek three times too. Promise. "Will you tell me your wish if it comes true?" Tug, tug, tug on his arm. Now that wishes were done, it was time to be heading in the direction of ICE CREAM. This was very exciting so far and maybe Pi was already feeling a little less nervous about being here.

Maybe that meant her wish to be more brave was starting to come true...

They didn't know about Bella yet. She probably was, though.

Looking at the fountain, she tilted her head to the side and considered it. "I think it's kind of pretty." She closed one eye and squinted the other. "Yeah. I mean, if you look at it like this... the serpent looks pretty. And you can ignore the missing head."
Mitchell laughed and shook his head. "Look at you. All grown up." he teased. She was adorable. "Yeah. You're brother? He's at the bank, right?" Unless there was a lot of Keller's in the European wizarding community.

"Pretty?" he asked with a raised eyebrow. "I don't think that's the right term for it." he said circling the fountain. "If this was back home, it would be condemned and a parking lot would be going up."

Three kisses. Triple promises. Lincoln had bagged a winner. Of course he usually triple promised back and kissed her cheek more than three times because he was a cheek kisser in bulk. Bulk kissing. Was that a thing? Marathons of kisses? Hoards? Eternities? Kisses. He nodded, reached for her hand and tugged on it too. "As soon as it comes true, I'll tell you." Hopefully soon. Hopefully by the end of the summer.

Because Tristan had moved home now and sharing a room really wasn't the best idea anymore. No more sleepovers.

"Shall we get ice cream?"

Managing to scrape his right elbow after the sixth fall from his skateboard, Louis hopped off the thing and picked it up with his uninjured arm while examining the other. Was it weird that he secretly enjoyed the gash? Perhaps. But he was just that happy to finally do this again.

Buuut he probably should do something about this because it was beginning to burn. A lot. And it was VERY unpleasant.
Spotting the fountain nearby, Louis made his way through the crowds and toward its crystal waters. Aware of the fountain’s nasty habit of shooting water at people who sat on its tiers without a monetary donation, Louis pulled out a few knuts and dropped them in the water before proceeding to sit on the topmost tier.

And that’s when he saw her.

Señorita?” Let’s just forget he totally butchered the pronunciation of the word and it was a lot easier for him to write it than to say it, yeah?

GRIN!
It was her, wasn't it?!

Suddenly, a blurt of what sounded like Spanish yet had a that British accent all over it made Paloma and her kitten stop and look across from the fountain. She raised her eyebrow, hoping she was not going crazy in the expectation of finally getting to meet that penpal from Hogwarts.

"Leonardo!"aka Mr. Prankster. Full name, Louis Bolton was there and she couldn't hold her grin when she waddled to stand in front of him.

There ensued some sort of hand tugging war where Lincoln tugged on her hand and she tugged on his back, and she wasn't quite sure who won, but it didn't really matter, right? They were both holding hands. Both winners. She grinned, "Promise?" Promise, promise, promise? Ice cream though, it was calling to her. Lallalalala ICE CREAM!

"Yes please. Ice cream please." She batted her eyelashes and gave him a 'Look, I'm so very cute, you should feed me.' face. "Please."

YEP. That was definitely Señorita Pal the master prankster. Only one person called him Leonardo.

Beaming, Louis got up to his feet and hopped down from the tier onto the ground, in front of the Spanish girl that had been his pranking teacher for the past couple months. “It is you!” Yeeep, that was definitely the girl from the pictures. Ignoring the sharp pain coming from his elbow, Lou gave the girl a friendly, welcoming hug.

“You made it to London,” he announced with a grin as he pulled back, as if the girl didn’t already know where she was. “This must mean I get to see the master prankster in action live, yeah?”

Paloma grinned and hugged him back. "Of course it's me." said her very much altered ego at the sight of her friend, who looked and walked pretty much injured.

She shook her head, "I'm not sure. But how are you? What happened to your leg and....arm...." she couldn't help but notice a smudge of blood and dirt on his shirt.

Louis put on a face of disappointment. “What do you mean ‘not sure’?” POUT. He finally got to see her all the way here in London and she wasn’t going to show him her pranking tricks?! C’monnn. Unfairness.

Oh.
His arm and his leg, right. He’d almost forgotten about that.
Lou looked down at his elbow again, as if to remind himself of the fact that he was injured. “Had a little accident with the friend there…” he confessed, motioning toward the skateboard by the fountain with a jerk of his head. “Sorry. I know, it’s uh… gross.” Girls weren’t big fans of cuts and blood and nasty things, right?

But where WAS his wand?! For Circe’s sake, he was going to bleed his arm dry if he didn’t find it and heal that gash soon. The boy began patting at his jean pockets again with no luck. Had he dropped it? Misplaced it somewhere?

Promise? Linc grinned, and pulled her into a big hug. "Promise, promise, promise. A million times over." That was like promising her everything he owned, right? 3 million promises was worth more than his HOUSE. His brothers careers. His...well, everything his entire family HAD. Now he couldn't break that promise at all. Not if he wanted to KEEP the house they'd have gotten if his wish came true.

How could he say no to that face? Lincoln nodded, kissed her cheek, swung their arms and moved them away from the fountain. "Do you know what flavour you want?"

She didn't want to be old during the summer. "Reallly rough." Because as if starting a new school wasn't hard enough she ended up growing up old. So yes. it had been rough.

But things were better now. She was young and pretty again. And she liked that a lot. "Glad we're young again now." Because it had been horrible. Her bones didn't hurt any more. She was about to say something else when someone came and interrupted them. How rude.

Oh. It was Frankie. "Hush Frankie." The girl shook her head, but did grab a couple of galleons from her pocket. "Here..." Go bug someone else. "And...he's not my boyfriend. He's my friend." Who apparently didn't know who Frankie was. She turned back to Caleb. "This is Frankie... my brother. Frankie... this is Caleb."

"You don't have to lie to me about your boyfriend here. That isn't very nice of you." The blond then looked at said boyfriend and gave him a friendly little wave. But then he also stated that he wasn't Grace's boyfriend. Hmm. Something about this didn't seem right.

"Does he not know that he is your boyfriend?" Frankie whispered to Grace. The young blond gave Grace's boyfriend, whose name was apparently Caleb, another look over. Well, he didn't look like the Hufflepuff type. So he could not have been that stupid. Gryffindor, perhaps? Caleb certainly did not seem to have much for manners.

Seeing that this boyfriend-not boyfriend scenario would be going nowhere, he decided to go with the story they were telling. It was not like he wouldn't get the chance to eavesdrop on Grace and Hayley or read Grace's diary later. So Frankie was going to play cool and stick around a bit longer just to annoy Grace. He would get that ice cream later. "Sup, Caleb? I'm Frankie. Grace's super awesome brother."


AHHH. Younger brother. That made sense. Caleb was so glad he didn't have any younger siblings. They seemed so annoying. Sophie, at least, was really chill and the perfect partner in crime. "You must be glad to get away from this one at school," he whispered at her with a chuckle.

"Nice to meet ya, kid," he said, ruffling his hair with a grin. It was nice being TALL and older than people for once. Now that he was a third year, he was moving up the ranks in the school hierarchy!

"And trust me - not boyfriend. Single and ready to mingle," he added to the kid with a wink. Maybe, if this dude grew up to not be so annoying, he could take him under his wing at school and teach him to be a ladies man. But only if he didn't bother him. He didn't have time for that!

Then they would start shopping for her school things, but until that moment, Hayley was free (or semi-free) to catch up with one of her best friends, who she had spotted just a little ways away before going into the shop with her mum. It had only taken her asking nicely and agreeing not to wander anywhere else, for her mum to let her go.. with Skylar in tow.

Holding tight to her younger sister's hand, Hayley zigzagged through crowds of older people before she was able to reach the fountain where a few kids she knew were. The Ravenclaw arrived in just time to hear Frankie Paton's introduction to Caleb, as she walked up behind him. "And younger. Younger brother." The Diggory girl added, offering her two friends, and fellow Hogwarts students, a smile before coming around Frankie's side to stand closer to her best friend. "Hey Gracie, hey Caleb."


Skylar was not a shy child, not in the slightest. Not even for a five-year-old. So when Hayley pulled her along toward her friends, the youngest Diggory beamed, and getting herself free of her sister's hold, bounced to Grace and wrapped her arms around the older girl's legs. Hai, Gracie. Hai.
Who was THIS kid now? So many little kids! Ugh. Caleb was getting more and more grateful for Sophie by the minute. "Hey Hayley! Um...who's this?" he asked. Maybe Thing 1 and Thing 2 could run off and play while the big kids caught up and stuff.

Oh.
His arm and his leg, right. He’d almost forgotten about that.
Lou looked down at his elbow again, as if to remind himself of the fact that he was injured. “Had a little accident with the friend there…” he confessed, motioning toward the skateboard by the fountain with a jerk of his head. “Sorry. I know, it’s uh… gross.” Girls weren’t big fans of cuts and blood and nasty things, right?

But where WAS his wand?! For Circe’s sake, he was going to bleed his arm dry if he didn’t find it and heal that gash soon. The boy began patting at his jean pockets again with no luck. Had he dropped it? Misplaced it somewhere?
Paloma hated to disappoint people, even more to new and funny friend like Louis. "I have a limited agenda today. But...." she pulled out a ticket to a nearby theatre to the show where she performed. "...if you could come. It'd mean a lot. And you can take someone. It's a double ticket." she said with a wide smile.

"Not gross at all. It happens all the time." she said showing a few scratches on her arms. Within seconds she took out her wand and fixed what she could.

Louis watched with curious blue eyes as Paloma pulled out a ticket and handed it to him. Oh? The boy took the ticket into his hand and examined it, listening as she asked him to come to the show. “What is it?” he asked. Then his eyes widened - he remembered the tweets. “You’re going to perform?” Griiiiiin. He was going to see Señorita perform live! Not pranks as he’d expected, but this was probably better.

The boy smiled when she showed him a few scratches she had herself, before she went on to heal the wound on his elbow. He watched as the gash magically cleared up, as if it had never been there at all.

With a grin, Lou turned back to his new friend. “Thanks, Pal.” She was just as brilliant in person as he imagined she would be.

"Pretty?" he asked with a raised eyebrow. "I don't think that's the right term for it." he said circling the fountain. "If this was back home, it would be condemned and a parking lot would be going up."
"I KNOW!" Lana bounced. She was twelve years old now. That was old. Not as old as Mitchie... or most of the people she knew... but it was as old as she'd ever been. She nodded. "That's him! Did you see him? He's really tall and has brown hair."

She followed him around the fountain with a skip. "But look." She stopped and pointed to one of the cherubs with a head. "He's cute, if you ignore the-" And then she was interrupted by a jet of water straight to her face. She squealed and jumped back before looking at Mitchie. "Didju see that? It- that-" WIDE EYES. Did he see that?!

Pal smiled as he took the ticket and sounded excited about it? "You will see. It's all a surprise." Not really, but he would enjoy the show, she hoped.

"And no problem. Just watch yourself and your friend." Surely, this afternoon would turn better than expected.

A surpriiiiiseee? Louis enjoyed surprises, but not when he knew about them ahead of time. Then it just made him curious. “Aw c’mon, tell me,” he asked, smiling at the girl with hopeful eyes. Though he had an IDEA of the surprise. “You’re going to be on stage, aren’t you?” He was almost certain. “Practicing those freshly-learned crying skills?” He remembered her mentioning something about that.

At the girl’s words of advice, the Gryffindor nodded his head. Thoughhhhhh, it would be naive to think he’d actually keep this in mind. Nope, a moment later he would probably be back on his skateboard falling off and crashing into things. He was a boy. Getting hurt was kinda fun.

Paloma shook her head, "it is all a surprise because you don't really know what and who will perform til you are there." Although she knew it would be one of her full nights. "So, are you coming or not?" And who would he bring?

Right, it'd be foolish to ask a boy to stay calm Wheaton the skateboard. "Just watch out. And use the right gear." she said motioning to her knees and elbows.

“Well, I know you will be performing,” Lou determined with a grin. Though she was right about the other bit - he had no idea who she would be playing. What was the play even about? Perhaps that would give him a clue as to which character she’d be taking on. “At least give me an idea of the plot, yeah?” Please?

At her next question, Louis smiled and shook his head with disbelief that she’d even ask. “Of course I’m coming!” PSH. His pranking teacher was here all the way from - where was it? Beauxbatons? - there was no way he was going to miss this. As for who he was bringing… “I’ll tell the Mrs. about it. I’m sure she’d love to come along.” Girls generally liked plays, yeah?

Awwww. Señorita was so motherly with her concern, Louis simply looked amused. He’d be nice and play along. “Right, right. The gear. Yeah, of course. I’ll make sure to get the right protection before I leave Diagon Alley today,” he lied with a reassuring nod.

Her shopping was halfway done, and she took this opportunity to look down into her bag at the items she had already collected. She had six galleons left, and had almost finished her shopping list. As always, she was saving Everchanging Inks for last, because she knew all of her money was going to be blown there.

Reaching into the pocket of her jeans, the girl pulled out a small box of fudge flies and popped a couple into her mouth, discarding the box back into the bag. A fluttering of feathers almost surprised her as a pigeon perched itself on her shoulder. She didn't have to look twice to know it was Pigeon, who had probably followed her to Diagon Alley after sending off letters this morning.

"You're too late," she said to the bird, "They're all gone, and you weren't going to get any anyway." The bird cooed shortly and moved down onto the bench next to her.

The girl was wearing a longsleeved black shirt. Despite the heat, it was made of a thin material, and a light breeze was all she needed. The heat didn't bother her, in any case. Not like the cold. She took this few minutes to relax before she knew she needed to head down to the Menagerie to pick up food for Pigeon and Kit. The ferret had been left home since she was doing her shopping by herself. No need for the little fuzzbutt to cause trouble. But Pigeon had obviously taken the liberty to come see her. That was different. The owl substitute was frequently out by itself, and the girl didn't worry.

She watched the people pass by, absentmindedly checking through the items she had already purchased. New things were always a thrill.


Her father was hilarious, truly. The fact he thought Lex would be willing to take her little sister with her to Diagon Alley was enough to say the man had jokes, some serious ones that she didn't stick around to laugh at. No. The Gryffindor had plans, nothing concrete but they didn't involve a 4 year old either so as fast as she could she grabbed some floo powder and was out of the house.

Now, walking through Diagon Alley, she realized that those not so concrete plans might have been better fleshed out a little. Aside from walking the streets and getting herself some ice-cream a little later on she would need something to keep her occupied, what with Lottie in New York and Cassia somewhere that only Merlin knew.

There had to be something to catch her attention...or someone? Yeah, someone talking to an owl by the fountain. New face too making it a bonus.

"Is he yours?" She asked, coming to a stop by the girl and flopping onto the fountain next to her. This spot wasn't taken yeah? Because she was sitting here now. "If not, I don't recommend feeding him or he'll follow you for ages."

The plot? "I think the theme for tonight is European folk tales. That's in theatre. And then, a few will sing, then a show of ballet to close up." She was just guessing, but based on what they had been rehearsing lately.

"And what is the Mrs. Name?" she never had really asked about her, the owner of his dreams as pure romantic people would say.
