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.

And now he was almost envious of the lad, because as fun as it was pretending to be an almost-first-year, he wasn't... and he knew that. Which sucked. It was only as the boy introduced himself that he realised he hadn't, but then again, he didn't really think Ezra would stick around to chat. Not many people did, not with him. Wasn't it cool that their names were similar? They had the same amount of letters AND they both had Z's. "I'm Zeke," he supplied, though he was too slow on taking Ezra's hand. Did he look germy? Was Ezra a germaphobe? Meh.

Enough? He KNEW that much, but enough wasn't going to tell him if HE had enough or not. Ugh. Zeke fiddled with the coins in his hand, counting, and recounting cause he forgot the numbers along the way. He didn't have much, "Eight galleons and some other stuff," he replied with a small voice, dejected that he didn't have enough for a wand. He really wanted a wand. Again he looked back into the fountain, there had to be two galleons in there that he could help himself to. Surely.

The term parents struck him as odd, but only because for so long it had only been him and his mum, and now, he didn't even have her. But he had an Emily. Coming back with Emily wouldn't be an option, not for another year, and that's if she didn't kill him for making a nuisance of himself to begin with. "I just really want my wand," Zeke confessed, hopping off his seat and transferring his gold back to his pocket. "Recon I could borrow some from in here?" he asked, turning to face the fountain, leaning over the edge to get a better look.
Zeke, nice name. It wasn't one that had Earnest attached to it but not everyone was so lucky. Ezra watched as Zeke poked around the few odd coins he held in his hand. Right, he didn't have enough. He had a feeling the kid was going to ask him to spot the additional two galleons and was not looking forward to doing so--he wouldn't have but it would make him feel kind of bad.

It was kind of pitiful really? Why hadn't the kid's parents given him enough for at least his wand and then came back with him later to pick up the rest of the junk? "Borrow...from there?" Ezra scoffed as he peered over the edge of the fountain into surface as it put off beams from the sun above them.

He looked around, no one was really paying them much attention. "I don't see why not. They sort of gave that money up, didn't they?" his brown eyes flicked back to the other boy expectantly.

Oh, don't look so happy with yourself. Olly immediately regretted not outright saying no. Sort of. Eh. "Is it?" Nice to meet her that is. She tilted his head slightly to the side, watching him, a smirk on her lips. Hamish. Interesting. "Olly." Hi.

She still hadn't moved from her bench.
Nothing to say? Huh. People with nothing to say always confused Hamish, but he wasn't one to judge. Seriously, if he started judging people can you imagine the amount he'd receive in return? He was just too fab for people to let alone. ...

Yep. That was totally the reason.

"Sure. You haven't hit me yet." Cause for a moment she had looked like she wanted to... Heh. Olly, right. He was getting somewhere here. "Olly, cool." Hamish grinned. "Are you at Hogwarts then, Olly?" Not now, obviously. But, y'know, in general..

Oops. He hadn't meant to startle her. Far from it. He looked awkwardly as she checked all her stuff, and peered into the fountain. There didn't look to be any bright and colourful art equipment in there, only old coins. He rubbed the nape of his neck apologetically, oblivious to her blushing. "Why not?" He gave her a little shrug and lopsided grin. "I said it, so it must be true." She was okay, yes?

"Cool. Whatchu drawing today?" Benjy leant the skateboard against the wall of the fountain, and peered over at her sketchpad. Looked colourful, that was for sure. "Oh, just been boarding...enjoying the freedom of the summer holidays and not being old and wrinkly." He gave a knowing smile. "A feeling like no other, though Quidditch comes close." He sat back against the fountain, and tilted his head thoughtfully. "That reminds me...I wondered at the end of term, if er...you'd...help me design something."

SPOILER!!: Sonea


Irritated and with a vain look in her eyes she lifted her chin up and folded her arms, who did this kid thought that she was? Yes, she had been away for two years, but… Did this kid really thought that he could push a stupid FISH in her face? And laugh about it? That kid was creasy! “Stop with laughing, this isn’t funny! Don’t you know who I am? I will bully you at Hogwarts if you don’t stop with laughing!” Hissed Sonea angry and glanced with a dark look at the boy. “I don’t like things what are wet, and especially animals, like fishes and all the other wet and cold things! Keep it away from me!” Again she did a step away from the boy and wished that the fountain would splash the boy because he had not thrown a coin in it while he was standing so close besides it!

She already wanted to turn around to leave this stupid place with this stupid kid when the boy spoke again, and this time about her two little rats! When somebody talked about her rats or just looked at them she always smiled, her mood lightened a little and she looked down at her two little friends. “Yes and no, the pink rat, Little princess, has been charmed but the blue rat, Sir Blue has born like this. Sir blue is the baby rat from Little Princess and because she is pink, and the other rat was blue, all her baby rats were also colored, but… They are all dead besides this one” Sonea’s face darkened and she felt sorry for all the little baby rats… “Rats are much better than a fish, so why are you having a fish like that?” Not understanding at all why this boy was having a fish in his hands she raised her eyebrow questioningly.

She saw relieved that the boy had tossed the fish in the water and now she relaxed a little more, she didn’t liked fishes and she had seen one now closer than ever before and she didn’t wanted to see a fish, RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER FACE again anytime soon! “Why are you talking to that fish, it’s a fish and he probably can’t understand you and IF he is understanding you, than he wouldn’t respond to you because… IT’S A FISH!” Sonea looked now really with a strange look at the boy, was he insane? The boy stared at the water, thinking about something she wasn’t really interested about when the boy suddenly spoke again to her. “Of course, why would I walk around with the animals from somebody else? Little Princess and Sir Blue are my two little friends” Sonea smiled and looked down at her rats.

Frowning she stared at the boy when he called for his Toad? But then her eyes widened and she looked alarmed around her. “A frog? Do you have a frog! EEUW! Where?!” Nervous and with her eyes wide she scanned the ground around her, “I like rats, but… Frogs are scary! Keep it away from me!”
[/QUOTE]


Bart was looking at her like she was nuts. He just kept laughing, really did she think she was scary? “No I don’t know who you are.” He said through laughter and stepped closer to her. “Bully me? I’d like to see you try. You don’t obviously know who I am.” Not that he was anyone scary, but he did pretty well against some last term. He against stepped closer he was going to push her in the fountain if she said anything else about bullying. He wasn’t afraid of any girls. “It was a fish, who cares.”

He looked at the fountain where he threw the fish, “You can talk to whatever animal you want. I put it in there for a joke. I wanted to wish it luck.” No big deal in his eyes really. He listened as she talked about her rats, they were cool he figured. “Dead? Did you kill them or something?” Why was only one alive if she didn’t kill the rest. “I’m not prejudice towards any animals they are all fine.” So fish, rats who cared.


He looked around for Toad where could that frog have hopped off too. His brown eyes looked up as she screeched a bit about it. “It’s just a frog.” What was her deal? Noticing something move he saw the frog and jumped towards it. “There he is see.” He pushed it in her face so that Toads nose was touching hers. “He’s a nice frog.” No big deal at all.


SPOILER!!: Miss Ariana Logan

Today she was feeling good and needed a break from work, so she went to Diagon Alley for lunch and for a moment forgot that school was out cause she was taken back by all the people in the area, whoa... hi people.

She looked around for a moment wondering if she would see any familer faces as she twisted the Bracelet on her wrist. Then she realized if she did run into anyone she knew that she hadn't talk to in the past four months or so she'd have to tell her secret she'd been hiding... it was slightly obvious and she wished, even though it was hot out, that she had brought a jacket or something with her. It was too late to turn back and go to her office to get it now so she just had to deal really.


Minerva had packed up everything and left her German home to floo to Diagon Alley for the day. It was summer so everyone was home from Hogwarts now which meant maybe she could meet up with a few of her just graduated friends or see other friends. No matter who she was just excited to have a day out. Once she stepped out of the shop she glanced at everything making sure she hadn't forgotten any items that Gunnar might flip about or diapers because that would be super bad if she forgot those.

Though she did wish she would have brought the stroller, her son was only seven months old, but he seemed to get super heavy after holding him awhile. Watching his blue eyes look at everything she smiled. "You are going to be one tired boy with all this new stuff to look at aren't you." She kissed his head before looking around. Her eyes fell upon someone that made her grin and she leaned closer to Gunnar and whispered, "Look it's Aunt Ari, let's go get her."

Making her way towards the fountain she moved Gunnar out in front of her so that he was facing Ariana, "Auntie Ari.. Auntie Ari.. I need hugs." Moving him a bit so it looked like he was trying to go to her. She heard his little giggles in the mean time glad he was enjoying this.

You can go out you know... why don't you go shopping..?

Richard's words had been niggling in the back of Aurora's mind for daaays now. She KNEW she could go out if she wanted to, she'd just been... well... tired. She hadn't wanted to spend a day walking around, it made her feet hurt. But she was going stir crazy today. Rich had practice today, so she'd been alone in the house again, and she just hadn't been able to engage herself with anything, so she'd left the house.

So here she was, Diagon Alley, wandering around aimlessly, being more bored than a seven and a half month pregnant woman should be ALLOWED to be. Surely people should be at her beck and call by now? HM? ... Probably not... she wouldn't really blame people if they never wanted to be around her again. She hadn't exactly been pleasant company the past week. She was hot and uncomfortable in the summer heat. WHY couldn't she have got pregnant some other time? It'd be way easier to do this in Winter, surely? Ugh.

Anyway, that wasn't the point. Aurora waddled down the street, half heartedly looking in all the window displays... but totally unimpressed. She reached the south end of the street and had all but given up on actually buying anything today, when she heard a familiar voice. Was that... Minerva? It was! And she was waving at Ari...

AND SHE HAD BABY GUNNAR! ... Awww. Aurora walked over towards them with a smile on her face. ACTUAL REAL HUMAN BEINGS WHO SHE COULD TALK TO. Not that Richard wasn't great - he was wonderful - but she was starved of human contact lately.

"Hey!" she called, waving enthusiastically.

THAT was the reason why he thought it was nice to meet her? Interesting. "Do you get hit a lot then?" Olly smirked and gave him an expectant look. Yes? No need to point out that she herself wasn't generally a violent person.

She might need him to believe exactly that to get rid of him later, though.

Yes that was her name. "Yes I do." She looked him over for a moment before shrugging slightly to herself. "Do you too?" Just because she hadn't noticed him didn't mean he didn't go to Hogwarts too. Then again, he did look a bit older than her though so probably not.

It was bloody HOT out here, and she was miserable. picking her hair up off her neck to tie it up she groaned a bit. Why did she decide to want to go out for lunch the hottest day of the year!? Letting out a breath she rubbed her stomach and mumbled a few words to herself before turning to go to the right side of the street, food food food. She took a few steps before she heard her name..... Oh hell.... here it goes. "look, I..."

OH! Oh! she giggled a bit seeing Gunnar in the air. "Hi, baby!" she raised her shoulders and poked at him before taking him from her best friend. "Hi! weird running into you both here." weird but good, she loved being around her best friend and nephew, loved it so much.. specially the nephew, he just made her world go around it seemed. " i love you too." she said laughing at Gunnar as he waved his arms around smacking her, clearly he was just as excited as she was!

baby nephew baby nephew! She was busy tickling at his sides and watching him giggle when she heard yet ANOTHER voice call out towards them. "Now who is it!?" she was excited, cause she had her favorite little guy in her arms so whoever it was could go somewhere else if they wanted to say anything to her.
It was AURORA!.. "Aurora! Look, Min, it's Aurora!" now it was a party! what a coincidence that they all decided to come out to this area today at the same time, funny small world they lived in. Lifting the baby up she made his little hand wave at Aurora as she approached them, "hi Aurora." she said with a baby voice for him, hehe cute nephew was cute. "look it how cute you look!" She looked Cute! She wanted to look that cute, ugh life struggles.

"He already follows me," she said with a glance at the pigeon, which made his way into her lap, cooing thoughtfully at the other girl. "I guess he was hoping I had picked up his food and would feed him some. But that's not going to happen." Kanna patted the bird on the head with one finger.

"My uncle breeds carrier pigeons, you see," Kanna explained. "He was a present, kind of." Much to some displeasure from her parents. But the pigeon had proved just as capable as an owl, and she loved her bird. So, she didn't fuss. That didn't mean other people loved him, which was a shame.

But enough of that. She had to introduce herself. "I'm Kannalynne," she offered. "But Kanna works fine," the girl added.
Fancy that, the pidgeon belonged to her afterall. It would explain why it was so familiar and why she'd bothered to talk to it but only so much. Lex talked to anything that moved, even things that didn't sometimes but that was usually brought on by frustration or boredom. It might have been safe now to assume the girl was neither because this bird actually belonged to her. "Has he eaten already today? Or is he just greedy?" She could understand greedy pets, she owned a kneazle that always seemed to be hungry.

And wasn't that odd...if not a little interesting. "Does he? Neat. Are they for some special organization or just breeding in general?" Carrier Pidgeons weren't exactly first choice among wizards. It was likely the man simply enjoyed raising them but then there might have been profit involved which, to her, would have made loads of sense.

She would have asked the name of the creature but then the girl's own name was being offered and it was much preferred considering this conversation had the potential to get beyond the initial greetings everyone did out of courtesy. Needless to say, she'd be calling her Kanna. It was offered and therefore not a problem. "I'm Alexa, 6th Year Gryffindor but you can call me Lex."

This now begged the question. "Pretty sure I've never seen you around, d'you go to school?...You know, school school, not homeschool."

It was AURORA!.. "Aurora! Look, Min, it's Aurora!" now it was a party! what a coincidence that they all decided to come out to this area today at the same time, funny small world they lived in. Lifting the baby up she made his little hand wave at Aurora as she approached them, "hi Aurora." she said with a baby voice for him, hehe cute nephew was cute. "look it how cute you look!" She looked Cute! She wanted to look that cute, ugh life struggles.


Minerva laughed as Ariana started to talk to Gunnar. She let the baby go as Ariana took him in her arms. "I just wanted to go out for the day and knew here would be a happening place since it's summer so I figured I'd show Gunnar his first summer at Diagon Alley. What are you doing?" It was weird to run into her, but Minerva was so glad she did. Any best friend time was good time and she kind of maybe had some news to tell her, but she still wasn't sure she was ready to tell her. "Were you headed to lunch? I'd love to join you if you want some company." She grinned watching Gunnar grab at her hair. "How are you feeling?" Good? Great? She hoped great.

Just as she was going to see what else was going on she heard someone else and Ariana's greeting. "Aurora hello." Min beamed and gave her friend a hug. "This is amazing seeing both of you. We are doing lunch for sure." She was taking no no's for an answer. "I'm glad I ran into you. I wanted to do some baby shower stuff." This was getting exciting. Look at both her friends. They were both so adorable. Min clapped her hands. "You two both look amazing." She was beaming so much lately from her own things as well as her friends.

"Where should we go for lunch?" They were going to lunch weren't they?

It was kind of pitiful really? Why hadn't the kid's parents given him enough for at least his wand and then came back with him later to pick up the rest of the junk? "Borrow...from there?" Ezra scoffed as he peered over the edge of the fountain into surface as it put off beams from the sun above them.

He looked around, no one was really paying them much attention. "I don't see why not. They sort of gave that money up, didn't they?" his brown eyes flicked back to the other boy expectantly.
He was entirely sold on Ezra, considering he wasn't going to stop him from fishing into the fountain. But.. yeah... this could pose problems. "You, need to keep lookout," he advised, a serious expression on his face. "I'm happy enough to split the profits, all I need is 2 G... but.. if you see a short-tall lady with brown hair and big eyes, like, really big eyes... then push me in and run away fast." Yep. Please. It would be for the best, for both of them. And no awkward explanation of why he was stealing from a fountain. It was the perfect plan.

Zeke pushed his short sleeves further up his arm, unsure of how deep this fountain was and he didn't really want to get much more of his clothes wet. Not if it could be helped. "I hope people have been generous," Zeke commented lightly as he plunged his hand into the cold water. It was moving. The water... or something... something? was moving. But he overlooked this and continued scouting, his fingers catching on coins in the depths.

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?!
Mitchell shook his head. "No." he replied. "The paper only hand a picture of the bank." He did need to stop by the bank sometime though. Maybe he'd run into the big brother. There couldn't be that many tall brown haired guys at a goblin run bank, right?

He looked over his shoulder when he heard her squeal. He smirked and did his best not to laugh. "The fountain begging for treats?" he asked looking it over. "Cool."

It might have been safe now to assume the girl was neither because this bird actually belonged to her. "Has he eaten already today? Or is he just greedy?" She could understand greedy pets, she owned a kneazle that always seemed to be hungry.

And wasn't that odd...if not a little interesting. "Does he? Neat. Are they for some special organization or just breeding in general?" Carrier Pidgeons weren't exactly first choice among wizards. It was likely the man simply enjoyed raising them but then there might have been profit involved which, to her, would have made loads of sense.

She would have asked the name of the creature but then the girl's own name was being offered and it was much preferred considering this conversation had the potential to get beyond the initial greetings everyone did out of courtesy. Needless to say, she'd be calling her Kanna. It was offered and therefore not a problem. "I'm Alexa, 6th Year Gryffindor but you can call me Lex."

This now begged the question. "Pretty sure I've never seen you around, d'you go to school?...You know, school school, not homeschool."
Kannalynne beamed at the girl's enthusiasm, however slight. She loved people who asked questions, and was eager to bring her answers. The bird continued to make quiet noises of curiosity, probably wondering if her conversation partner had any sort of treat to offer.

"He's a greedy bird. But he gets plenty of exercise, so I don't mind too terribly. Can't have a carrier pigeon too fat to fly." Especially since she was so attached to the bird that getting an owl would be an insulting and uncomfortable change. Owls were noisy. And big. Pigeon was quiet and tiny, and just how she liked him.

"It's really a hobby for him, but he sells off the birds to people with a lot of muggle relations, he says. Less conspicuous than owls flapping about with mail... And we suspect he is allergic to owls, but we don't really know." So there was that.

"Nice to meet you, Lex," she said, trying to commit the name to memory immediately. "I do!" The answer to the second question came out in a strangely excited tone. You breathe air? I breathe air, too! "I'm a fifth year Ravenclaw this year. As if I might be a fourth year Slytherin next year." Her house usually had to be clarified due to her dyed koolaid-red hair. She was often mistaken for a Gryffindor, which was no shame, of course.

Perfectly fitting of Señorita Pal.

At her following words, the boy nodded his head. “I’m sure she will.” He had yet to see Delilah dislike anything, really. Except meat.

“So,” Lou started after a moment’s silence. “Would you like to see your teachings at work?” he asked with a mischievous smile, eyebrows wiggling.
Paloma smiled at the actual attention Louis had given her at their conversations. And how he cared if she got a good role for the night. "Either way, I do hope you enjoy the show. And for Delilah too." After all, they had rehearsed for so long and hard.

But let's not forget why she was at Diagon Alley. Louis had been actually practicing the crazy applied charms she had sent for him. "That's why I came. Show off!" she said with a wide grin as she sat down next to the fountain and put Vader on her lap, as bored as the kitty would look.

Yes that was her name. "Yes I do." She looked him over for a moment before shrugging slightly to herself. "Do you too?" Just because she hadn't noticed him didn't mean he didn't go to Hogwarts too. Then again, he did look a bit older than her though so probably not.


A lot? ... Hmm... "Eh, well, less often than I deserve." Hamish said with a grin. Not an invitation, by the way, just an observation. He was very good at dodging, yep. He'd developed the skill over time. It wasn't his over-zealous personality that got him in trouble most of the time anyway, so he was probably good here.

Ahh, Hogwarts student. Probably in her last year or something, though Hamish wasn't exactly good at estimating age. "Oh, no I was homeschooled." he admitted, shrugging slightly. "My mam doesn't trust all the stories that come out of Hogwarts. She wouldnae send us there." No matter how hard his sister had protested. "Is it really as mad as it seems?"

It was nice to actually SEE people. Kind of a relief actually, knowing humans existed outside of her own home. And look! People she wasn't related to! It had been at least a fortnight since she'd actually seen anyone who wasn't Richard or related to one of them. "Hey Gunnar!" she said, wiggling her fingers at the baby in a little wave.

....Cute. CUTE? Aurora did NOT feel cute. Not today. Today she was hot and bothered and generally bored. ... But she wouldn't say that, not matter how much she wanted everyone else to feel her pain. "Thanks." she said, smiling at Ariana. "So do you." she added with a grin. Aurora was excited for Ari okay? Cause she knew she'd be a good mum.

"Hi Min." Doing lunch. Yeah... that sounded like Aurora would be able to actually sit down, which was like number one on her priorities list right now. "Lunch, yes." Food sounded perfect. .... Ah... baby shower... right. Did she have to do that? She didn't mind, so long as she was allowed to ban people from trying to touch her bump. For some reason people seemed to think it was okay to touch it without asking lately. Just because she was a tiny little woman didn't mean she couldn't kick some butt, okay? "Sure, we can talk about it. Anything to keep me occupied." She was only kind of joking there. And now she looked amazing? Seemed like her friends needed their eyes tested...

"Anywhere. Somewhere I can sit down within the next five minutes, preferably." Aurora said. Her feet huuuurt. "Oh... and if we can avoid seafood that would be great."

"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."

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.

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!



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.


"Franklin. He isn't my boyfriend. I can have friends that are boys." And Caleb happened to be one of them. She wasn't even crushing on Caleb. She was liking this other guy, called Donny. So that was who she wanted to be her boyfriend. Not Caleb. Even though Caleb was really pretty, but nothing on Donny. He was nice. And now she wanted to go see Donny. Maybe she would go and owl him later. So they could meet up and stuff. "Ughh. Shut up Frankie." He was just really annoying. Caleb wasn't her boyfriend. End of. No go away annoying little brother.

And she was just about to open her mouth again when she had someone's arms around her legs. She was about to tell them to get off, but then she saw who it was. "Skylaarr!" She beamed, hugging her bestie's little sister close. She had missed this little girl when they had been at Hogwarts. "I misssed youuu." She really had. They had to spend some time together before she went back to Hogwarts.

Looking up, she beamed at her bestie. "Haii Hayley." She had missed her too even in the short time they had been home. She leant over, still with a little girl on her legs, and hugged her friend.

Oooh, look a fountain. Emmylou wanted to find a place to relax, she had been walking all over the place. The thirteen year old hasn't been to Diagon Alley since last summer and now this was her first summer here as a future Hogwarts student. She was going to be a third year at Hogwarts, she was going to be able to get sorted into one of the four houses at the most famous wizarding castle. Emmylou was just so excited to be at the castle, she had been to Hogsmeade but she hadn't been up to Hogwarts itself. But any who, Emmylou walked over to the fountain and looked in it. The blonde smiled. Only Emmylou would get all excited over a fountain.

Zeke was now reaching in the fountain and it didn't seem like anyone else was paying attention still--good. The eleven year old kept turning back and forth from looking up and down the street to peeking excitedly at reaching other boy. "Got anything yet?" Water had sprayed towards where he was standing and got on his shirt. Not a bad price to pay so that his new friend could get his wand.

Aye aye. That was a Captain's call!... Or a Skippers? He couldn't tell, either way, it was cool. He was totes down with it. Zeke fumbled around in the water, now with both arms in its murky depths. He could feel things, and this included money. Yep, he could feel it. Big ones, small ones... ones that were oddly shaped and slimy...

"I got stuff, just.... a bit.... more," he enunciated, looking back briefly at Ezra. Was he still looking out? Were people looking away? Emily wasn't coming right? He was clear, right? "I think I've goo--tt.... WOAH!" He'd pulled one arm out triumphantly, a mixture of silvers and golds in his fist. Whether they were wizarding currency or muggle he couldn't yet tell, but it was looking promising. His other hand however, had gotten caught on something, and whatever it was he was caught on had yanked him forward... forward... and very much INTO the water. "Dammit!"

He cocked his head to the side as he looked at the girl, looking confused for a split second but then changed his expression to normal. "Well, that's stupid" he said. "Why would you throw away money, money is important and my parents say that you have to fight for your wish" Was his Gryffindor showing much?

Sitting in the fountain, the water coming to his waist he felt that the slimy things that had wrapped around his hand earlier were gone and at the question of if he was still alive he shot the girl a glare. He stood up and put a wet shoe on the edge of the fountain and climbed on top of it. Water dripped off his pants and on to the ground and he huffed loudly. "Do i look like i'm not alive? oh and thanks for the help" he snapped sarcastically, his old personality that he wanted to change for the sake of getting friends, coming back again. "Sorry" he added after a few seconds when he remembered his goal of the year.

He grabbed his wand from his wrist holster but then groaned even louder in frustration when he remembered that he wasn't allowed any magic outside of school. And this Sophie girl was a third year so she wasn't much of a help either. His parents were a big no no as well... Great first impression eh? Well, since he needed to wait for his pants to dry he might as well TRY and get to know her. So he sat down on the ground...a bit away from the fountain... and spread his legs so that the sun could dry his pants up faster. "What house are you even in? Not Gryffindor that's for sure"


Sophie shrugged. "I don't know. I've never thrown money in a fountain before. I just know that people do," she replied. "Have you ever tried it, though? Maybe you could throw money in and wish for more money. Then you'd have more than you started out with." It was an idea that Sophie had never thought of before now. It made sense, though. She looked into the fountain and wondered if now would be a good time to try it. Probably not, though. Not with this kid fishing all the money out the fountain.

Sophie grinned and shook her head at him. "Boys," she said, as if that just explained it all. "Would you have really wanted me to help you? I thought you boys wanted to be all manly-acting and stuff." Besdies, the water was a foot deep. Even a non-swimmer could have gotten out of there alive, right? "What happened in there anyway?" He acted like he'd been snatched by a grindylow or something. He hadn't, had he? Then she really would feel bad for not helping him. Sorry? "For what?" she asked.

Sophie laughed as she sat down next to him. "No, I'm a Slytherin," she said. "What year are you?" Had he said? "Maybe you know Caleb, my brother."

He gave her a little shrug and lopsided grin. "I said it, so it must be true." She was okay, yes?

"Cool. Whatchu drawing today?" Benjy leant the skateboard against the wall of the fountain, and peered over at her sketchpad. Looked colourful, that was for sure. "Oh, just been boarding...enjoying the freedom of the summer holidays and not being old and wrinkly." He gave a knowing smile. "A feeling like no other, though Quidditch comes close." He sat back against the fountain, and tilted his head thoughtfully. "That reminds me...I wondered at the end of term, if er...you'd...help me design something."

Vesper had assumed she'd gotten over this awkwardness. She had obviously assumed wrong.

...At least Benjy wasn't making fun of her. That was the literal worst...

"A rockin'!socks beater AND all-knowing? How are you still without a girlfriend?" It was meant in jest because Vesper knew about Benjy's little crushy-crush on a certain insane, chocolate-loving Gryffindor they all knew and were equally scared of. Mhmmmm. Also, it was strange...considering the shippy-nature of their school. Benjy didn't seem compelled like the rest.

............As an aside, though...she was glad to be getting away.

"When Ascanius isn't showing off...it's actually not that bad. He likes to annoy me by over-powering my voice." Noise....NOISE. Though...Ves had a new found appreciation for Ascanius Stark. He was actually a really good friend...and person to talk to about things.

Yea, she'd been shocked, too.

Glancing around at their surroundings...Vesper offered him a peek at the page she was laboring over: An almost perfect representation of the sunlit Diagon Alley street through the spray of the fountain...including a translucent barely-there rainbow glinting through the mist. After showing him, though...the Ravenclaw quickly hid her work...and bit at her lip. Hopefully, he wouldn't criticize it...

...and if she'd have been brave enough, skateboarding actually looked like a lot of fun. TERRIFYING....but adrenaline! Benjy was the ideal skater-boy, too...if Ves were to mentally comment herself. "What kind of design?" That had definitely piqued her interest.

Ahh, Hogwarts student. Probably in her last year or something, though Hamish wasn't exactly good at estimating age. "Oh, no I was homeschooled." he admitted, shrugging slightly. "My mam doesn't trust all the stories that come out of Hogwarts. She wouldnae send us there." No matter how hard his sister had protested. "Is it really as mad as it seems?"
"Lucky you, then." Olly rolled her eyes but it was quite obvious that she wasn't incredibly annoyed with Hamish right now. Actually, this conversation was definitely a whole lot more interesting than sitting on a park bench by herself and scowling at strangers. So...he was going to allow him to stay. For now.

Until something/someone better came along.

No Hogwarts student then. That's what she thought. Pulling her legs up so she could rest her chin on her knees, Olly considered his question for a moment. "It's definitely mad, yeah. Most of the teachers are useless and a lot of us almost died of old age this past term." So yeah, mad was probably a euphemism there.

...and now it was Benjy's turn to blush. He ran a casual hand through his hair, and shrugged. "I scare'em all off, I guess..." Well, not quite all of them. He still had the promise of a skateboarding date with Lex, but he was still being cautious on that front. He liked her, for sure, but she hadn't willingly given him any more kisses, despite being in a kissing booth, and he'd seen that Jun guy hanging round with her a fair bit. He was hoping their date might help clear things up, to be honest. Benjy wasn't particularly in a rush to get a girlfriend - happy to wait and all that - but seeing everyone else in his year pairing up was wearing a bit thin, truth be told. And it'd be nice to know if he was in with a chance or not...

"That'd be Slytherins for you..." Benjy said with a look. Always wanting their own way, and usually getting it. Oh, to wipe the smug looks off their faces. Yup, that was the Gryffindor in him talking. "Glad we beat them in the Quidditch Cup," he commented, shoving his hands in his pockets,and resting his back against the fountain.

He couldn't help but stare at her sketchpad as she showed it to him. "Whoa, Ves..." he said, stunned. He knew she was good...but he wasn't sure he ever really taken in how good before. Or maybe he'd just only ever seen her doodling in the Common Room, and never a proper piece in full colour. Either way, she really didn't need to be looking at him quite so worried. "You're definitely the person for the job," he said with a nod, mainly to himself. He had a feeling she could capture the mood he wanted just right.

"A tattoo," Benjy answered, flicking the skateboard down from where it was leant, and rolling it gently back and forth under his left foot. "I've got the words, just not the image...was thinking a boarder in action. Y'know, mid-jump..." Actually, she probably didn't, but he couldn't easily demonstrate. "'s for my arm," he added, taking his hands from his pockets, and showing where he was thinking on the inside of his lower right arm. "I'll pay you for the commission of course." That's how these things worked, right?

That's how these things worked, right?

Vesper took a moment to give him "the eye". Was Benjy scary? She couldn't justify saying as much...unless he'd have been holding a beater's bat. Then...yea, that would've been pretty scary. "I think you're exciting." That was her artistically sensible analysis, anyway.

"Not all Slytherins are too bad. Just annoying." Her eyes might have flashed for a moment because nothing could've been more true. Slytherins got on her last nerve. West Odessa, especially. THE LAST NERVE. "Ascanius just has vanity issues. Though, I'm not nearly as attractive as he is...So, he shouldn't feel threatened."...because Ves would never tell Ascanius but...yea, he was very pretty. Too pretty. Like a girl.

Actually, all her bandmates were girlishly pretty. What...did that say about her? Something to think about later, of course.

When Benjy didn't openly laugh at her picture, the Ravenclaw relaxed a bit. He could stay. Mhm. "The job? This sounds serious..." Wariness might have been present in her tone. Might have. Vesper didn't know what was in her voice half the time...but it was a possibility.

"....You'd actually pay me...to draw you a tattoo?" Mystified. Vesper was mystified. FLATTERED...but so mystified. "I'd love to sketch something for you...but no payment would be required." TEAMMATES, you know? She couldn't justify charging a teammate and friend. Because Benjy was totally a friend. He'd saved her skull.

Oh!..............People would actually pay her for that? It was as if something had shifted in the heavens and golden, beaming light was now descending upon her head. Brain blast. Perhaps she wouldn't have to worry about being a complete magical failure after all...

It was weird to run into her, but Minerva was so glad she did. Any best friend time was good time and she kind of maybe had some news to tell her, but she still wasn't sure she was ready to tell her. "Were you headed to lunch? I'd love to join you if you want some company." She grinned watching Gunnar grab at her hair. "How are you feeling?" Good? Great? She hoped great.

Just as she was going to see what else was going on she heard someone else and Ariana's greeting. "Aurora hello." Min beamed and gave her friend a hug. "This is amazing seeing both of you. We are doing lunch for sure." She was taking no no's for an answer. "I'm glad I ran into you. I wanted to do some baby shower stuff." This was getting exciting. Look at both her friends. They were both so adorable. Min clapped her hands. "You two both look amazing." She was beaming so much lately from her own things as well as her friends.

"Where should we go for lunch?" They were going to lunch weren't they?

....Cute. CUTE? Aurora did NOT feel cute. Not today. Today she was hot and bothered and generally bored. ... But she wouldn't say that, not matter how much she wanted everyone else to feel her pain. "Thanks." she said, smiling at Ariana. "So do you." she added with a grin. Aurora was excited for Ari okay? Cause she knew she'd be a good mum.

"Hi Min." Doing lunch. Yeah... that sounded like Aurora would be able to actually sit down, which was like number one on her priorities list right now. "Lunch, yes." Food sounded perfect. .... Ah... baby shower... right. Did she have to do that? She didn't mind, so long as she was allowed to ban people from trying to touch her bump. For some reason people seemed to think it was okay to touch it without asking lately. Just because she was a tiny little woman didn't mean she couldn't kick some butt, okay? "Sure, we can talk about it. Anything to keep me occupied." She was only kind of joking there. And now she looked amazing? Seemed like her friends needed their eyes tested...

"Anywhere. Somewhere I can sit down within the next five minutes, preferably." Aurora said. Her feet huuuurt. "Oh... and if we can avoid seafood that would be great."


it was a pretty happening place, yeah. "just taking lunch and was getting food." so yes she was joining her, she was. Mostly cause she wasn't giving up her nephew any time soon so Min had to follow her around and all till her lunch was over. "ohh, droll, yes i love it." she looked down at the boy as he drooled down on her hand. usually she'd be oppressed to the idea of baby drool but this boy had her wrapped around his finger so tight she couldn't not just shrug it off. "i'd love for you both to join me." yes she would cause BABY! The best friend was a bonus too. "Im feeling a bit tired actually" really tired the past few weeks. "but you know it's okay." it'd be worth it and all in the end apparently.

Arora, did look cute through she own this pregnancy thing something Ariana was not doing, at least not well anyway. "well, i try you know." she said tugging her hair away from Gunnar's hands again. She might of been miserable and as big as a house but sassy Ariana was still very much sassy. "Yes, sitting, lets do that." cause even though she wasn't hurting now didnt mean she wont be in ten minutes time.

life was hard.

"He's a greedy bird. But he gets plenty of exercise, so I don't mind too terribly. Can't have a carrier pigeon too fat to fly." Especially since she was so attached to the bird that getting an owl would be an insulting and uncomfortable change. Owls were noisy. And big. Pigeon was quiet and tiny, and just how she liked him.

"It's really a hobby for him, but he sells off the birds to people with a lot of muggle relations, he says. Less conspicuous than owls flapping about with mail... And we suspect he is allergic to owls, but we don't really know." So there was that.

"Nice to meet you, Lex," she said, trying to commit the name to memory immediately. "I do!" The answer to the second question came out in a strangely excited tone. You breathe air? I breathe air, too! "I'm a fifth year Ravenclaw this year. As if I might be a fourth year Slytherin next year." Her house usually had to be clarified due to her dyed koolaid-red hair. She was often mistaken for a Gryffindor, which was no shame, of course.


Beaming, that was as good a sign as any and Lex would take it to mean she wasn't being all kinds of nosy. She hadn't started her full reign of questions just yet so it was good to know they weren't already not being appreciated.

Ah, so he was greedy. "Greedy ones are cute...until they get into your food but I'm usually all for sharing with my kneazle. Problem is he prefers other people's pets to the things on my plate. As you can imagine that causes problems." The kind that left her chasing him all over the castle, sometimes for hours just to make sure she wasn't on the receiving end of complaints. Those irked her. "If he was fatter he'd wobble when he flies." Lex said, amused by the thought as she looked to the bird again. Think how CUTE that would be!!!

"That kinda makes sense...." The Prefect said, giving it some thought. "We haven't got an owl. Our neighbours find it weird when one flies in through our windows but they've learned to ignore it." As much as could be expected anyway. Muggles were nosy by nature. They couldn't help it. "Do you live around muggles?" Now that they were kinda on the subject and all.

Alexa had a horrid little habit, according to others, to her it was perfectly normal; the girl wasn't in the habit of telling people she thought it was nice to meet them until the encounter was over, just in case it wasn't so she simply smiled at that, ready to move on. Oh? "Ravenclaw?" Just her luck. She and Lottie had a rotten habit of running into those. They weren't bad in moderation but you know....yeah. "Interesting! I know a lot of Ravenclaws. Loads more than I thought I would to be truthful." Some of them weren't so bad, this girl didn't seem so bad either.
