Default North End of the Street

Diagon Alley runs along a crooked, narrow street. Along the North End, of course, are the shopfronts. Large glass windows display hot items, special objects, advertise for sales, and encourage people to come in. The path is incredibly tight and overhangs of buildings on either side threaten to touch the building across from it. People walk packed together, as they try to maneuver around groups of people, vending carts, and holes in the cobble road. Be careful of doors opening so that you donít walk into them by accident.

Outside the Leaky Cauldron entrance is a large, outlandish fountain which threatens to take up the walk. Once one gets around the fountain, the path tightens and the surge of people begins. Bump, jostle, and nudge people as you move around Ė itís okay, really. Balconies and overhangs create a bright array of color as one meanders down the street. The noise level is cluttered Ė yelling comes from the hawkers, from the food vendors, from people calling to one and other. Much like a festival, the atmosphere is nearly tangible; electric and festive. Donít forget to close your eyes and breathe in. Popcorn, kebabs, soup, bread; so many food smells fill the air with a pungent scent.

"There's nothing wrong with being so short," she said, "You can fit into tiny places and then gloat at the taller people that they can't." And this is coming from someone who has always been average height. More or less.
AnnaLeah chuckled. "It's not fun when your stepson is taller than you, and his little brother is getting there" she sighed. She laughed a little. "Yeah, I guess so" she said.

Aurora walked up the street, head in the clouds, her mind filled with happy thoughts... Potions, friends, family, boys...

Wait. What? Boys? She shook her head a little and kept walking on, wondering to herself about what on earth had made it's way into her head when-

"Oh my goodness! I'm sorry! I wasn't paying attention! Are you okay?" she'd walked right into someone. Oops...

Aurora smiled, "Good. I'm Aurora by the way." she shook her long red hair back so she could see the girl properly, she recognised her from somewhere... "Do you go to Hogwarts?" she asked.

He couldn't help but shake off the comment since he wasn't about to let the oddest little thing bother him. You know if you're smart, you won't make another comment about her.. I mean you've already embarrassed yourself once by running into her.

At the next comment he was nearly rendered speechless, in the past few summers that he had been escorted by Raven to Diagon Alley; no one even mistaken her for his girlfriend. But this clearly was a different story. "Actually, she's my cousin. She usually thinks the strangest things are funny but really.. there's no need to pay much attention to her." Like that would happen, she always drew some kind of attention towards herself.
"Well everyone has their imperfections." Danae replied matter-of-factly. For example, she was adopted and always got stared at when she was with her parents because she obviously didn't look like them. "But you've just got to own them and move on, yeah?" she smiled softly.

"Oh! Sorry about that, I wasn't sure." the girl said, feeling her cheeks fill out with colour. "Well it's nice to meet you, erm...I didn't get your names." Danae said, looking from the boy to the girl and back.

Ooh, so she did recognise her. "So what house are you in?" she asked, taking a paper bag from her pocket and popping a Jelly Baby into her mouth. "I'm in Slytherin, third year." she grinned.

Aurora smiled, Gryffindor... she didn't really know any gryffindors... there had been Zara but she'd left and there was Nika... but that was about it. "Nice to meet you. What are you doing here in Diagon Alley?" she asked.

"It's true, though some people still strive for perfection which in reality is practically impossible. Whether it be in the way someone looks or the way they act, there's always going to be something that prevents them from truly being the whole ideal. Which is absolutely okay, so as long as people realize that there is no need to change." Well meeting this girl was proving to become most interesting, he never thought he'd be having an intelligent conversation this earlier on but obviously Matt had absolutely no problem with it since he happened to seek out those conversations.

"It's quite alright, I've never heard that before but there's a first time for everything I suppose." He chuckled slightly, still realizing that it was absolutely one of the oddest things that he had ever heard and that definitely said something since he had heard some pretty weird things from his cousin. "I'm Matthew Stevenson, please just call me Matt; the formality isn't needed by any means. And I am a 6th year Slytherin." The sounded really weird still, but it was the truth.

As the conversation progressed through her cousin and the girl that he had run into, Raven was becoming increasingly bored; she wanted to cause some trouble and soon but without any of her former proteges around, she would have been held responsible for her actions and that was something that she didn't want to have to do. It appeared that the girl wanted to know she was, evidently she hadn't been around London long enough to realize it but maybe that would change soon enough. "Raven Athlon, graduated from Hogwarts a few years ago and now I work as a photographer." That introduction was rather lackluster to her but she wasn't about to waste her breath on someone who probably was going to tune her out while she was still talking.

Danae was impressed by the boy's answer, Matt as he soon introduced himself. It was cool to see that someone that she was going to school with could actually be intelligent. There was a house that was dedicated to people who were a bit more into studies than other aspect of their personalities.

"Hello Matt, Raven." she replied with a soft smile. "I'm Danae Zoto and I'll be a 5th year." So that made them both older than her, which was nice. She liked talking to more mature people rather than people who were a bit childish.

The mention of the photography was intriguing to Danae. "Muggle newspapers or Wizarding papers?" she asked, as there was a difference.

Before she could let Matt speak, Raven felt the need to answer Danae's question; which was rather interested seeing as many people never took the idea of being a photographer as a serious career but it was far from easy. "A bit of both actually, I used to take pictures for the Kilkenny Times, the Wizarding newspaper from my hometown but apparently the muggles had seen it and I was contacted by a couple newspapers as well as magazines to do pictures for them. I work as a freelance photographer, I take jobs here and there whenever they need me to work." That definitely worked for her since she had other things going on in addition to her career, otherwise she would have had a major headache from having too much to do and not enough time.

"Nice to meet you too Danae, so you're new to Hogwarts? Where did you originally come from? And before you ask, I'm a transfer student myself; transferred from Rygal Academy in Los Angeles, California and that was in my 4th year." Of course that was definitely strange for him, Matt had become used to having to hide the fact that he was a wizard around other people since the city was still predominately muggle territory and they never had had a positive outlook of the Wizarding community thanks to a few people who decided to cause a scene and duel right in the middle of the city which was an incredibly bad idea.

"It's gonna be my first year at Hogwarts, so I'm really excited... So I probably talked to myself because I'm really excited," yep, that was a good excuse but it was also the truth.
"Okaaay," Nora said as she slightly raised her eyebrows. Alright. The girl was talking to herself, and not to her as she thought, so it was definitely not her business... or was it?

But then... first year at Hogwarts? "Same for me," she grinned. "So... you'll be a first year, right?" Even though she seemed a bit taller for a first year. But then again, what first year wasn't taller than her four feet and nine inches?

"Did you manage to fool teachers as well? That would've been pretty funny if you got away with that," James admitted, thought if he had twin friends, he'd probably go mad himself; not being able to tell which is which at times. "Seems like you two still have many people to fool. Hopefully if I ever meet your twin, I can tell you guys apart,"

If he couldn't, then James would probably never be able to tell any pair of twins apart.

Stepson? Taller? Honestly? Amy bit her lip, trying her hardest not to laugh. It would be rude to laugh at the fact that someone's son, or step son in this case, was taller than the said person... wouldn't it?

Instead, she decided to use the sympathy card. "Look on the bright side: at least you can kick them if they start to annoy you," Hod on... WHAT?! "Except, don't kick them... that's just rude."

Yes, that's her sympathy card.

"Have you ever done Quidditch games?" Danae asked, wondering if Raven had ever gone to a game where her brother played. He was newish to the game, but promising already.

Turning to look at Matt, Danae nodded. "Yes, I'm new. My parents brought me to England from Cote D'Ivoire where we lived until about..a month or so ago. I went to the Hono School. It was small, but very good." she explained with a small smile of fondness remembering her old wizarding school with all her friends.

"California? That explains your accent then." the girl said, noticing that his accent was common to this region. She only had a slight accent, but since she had been brought up with two British parents, she had also picked up on how they said things.

It was the sort of smile one wouldn't imagine on a grown man, seeing as it resembled that of a kitten waiting to pounce on a piece of string wiggling across the ground. "A young man in fact who nearly snubbed out my little Ray of Eternal Sunshine. Howlers have a limit you know, of how much voice and sound can come from them. Didn't know that until just recently though." He shook the box.

He glanced at the boy. Hmmm...something was still very curious about him. He seemed to remember seeing him in a picture where he was wearing robes...yellow ones perhaps.

"Do you go to Hogwarts by any chance?"

Well, that was a rather silly question he supposed considering that most of the kids running around the area were Hogwarts students.

THEN, the boy smiled. It has a bit of a sparkle to it. Hadn't he READ about THAT somewhere? Charles began picking his brain, but became distracted once more when the young man spoke.

"AN OWL!? DON'T BE SILLY!" he exclaimed throwing the box up in the air as he reached into his beige coat pocket for his photo album - he managed to catch the box before it hit the ground and released all Howlers. "MY LITTLE AMBASSADOR OF CUTENESS IS FAR MORE ADORABLE AND INTELLIGENT AND INNOCENT THAN ANY OWL! WHY, JUST LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK AT THIS!"

Charles pulled out a picture and shoved it in the boy's face with one hand while his other went around his shoulder and pulled him close. Yes, being up close and personal was the best way to experience the glory that was his little sparkly princess of radiance.
SPOILER!!: what's in your wallet?!

Charles squeezed the boy-who-had-no-name-at-the-moment and oozed love and pride all over the place. "Actually, she is holding a cat stuffed animal that her mother showed her how to sew that very morning. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!"

Charles nearly hugged the boy, but his focus was more on the picture than anything else.


Treyen felt so much better with all those Howlers in the box, truth be told, yet he still felt uncomfortable of knowing there was a BOX of those things around.

Oh, wait, there were for a single person...and, wait, what? "Sounds awful," what the young man nearly did. "I didn't know that, then again, I've never had to send one myself," quite logical, though, that Howlers worked that way.

Then the man was looking at him as if trying to recognize him again. Odd, really, unless he had a kid that went to Hogwarts, of course...hey, he still didn't know what the man's name was. Never mind that. "As a matter of fact, I do," he decided not to give anymore information about the year he was in or his Prefect status or anything. After all, he had no idea who the man was.

His eyes widened at the sudden outburst of the man, and followed the box that was now on the air...and, thankfully, caught by the one who had set it flying in the first place. Okay, so, no owl. Got it. CLEARLY, this man has never met Gilderoy, his owl. But before he could mention that, he was being shown a picture of a girl, and being practically hugged by the man showing him the picture.

It proved difficult to focus on the picture because he was trying to get away from the man's grasp...until he mentioned baking and his eyes wandered off to the picture in question. Kurumi baked cookies, didn't she? He was suddenly reminded of her, and he wondered for a moment how she was. He knew from Conan that she was supposed to be in the States for the majority of the summer. "Sir, er, I kind of need to breathe over here," he said, as he managed to get away from the hug, unharmed. "Isn't she too little to be abroad, though? On her own?" That's what the picture suggested age-wise. Treyen shouldn't be encouraging this man to talk more.

Of course, when you tell someone you're talking to yourself it sounds weird, why didn't she lie? STUPID JOJO! Well the girl will probably forget about it before the train will even arrive at Hogwarts. EEEP! She forgot that after Diagon Alley she will be going to Hogwarts! It's so exciting.

It was this girl first year at Hogwarts too. "Awesome," she grinned back to the girl. Maybe this girl was also from a different school, or she could be just a normal first year, which means she's younger than her. That sucks. "Nope, I'm a third year. I used to study in the US, but my parents decided to sent to Hogwarts," seriously, just because it is her first year at Hogwarts, doesn't mean she's a first year, unless she's as short as a first year... Oh, that could be awkward. "By the way I'm Joanna. But my friends usually call me JoJo, Joe, or Joann," she introduced herself.

"Isn't she too little to be abroad, though? On her own?" That's what the picture suggested age-wise. Treyen shouldn't be encouraging this man to talk more.

Charles grinned. "I never thought I would be sending one myself to tell you the truth," he said patting the box briskly with his hands. It reminded him of Kaishu playing the drums, but then that reminded him of THAT boy who was going around trying to be Romeo for the WRONG Juliet. "Receiving my fair share as a student, I swore that I would never send one. But, times change." And evil boys break his little princess' heart. He never did find out where that one one had gone. The one who went to Mexico. He owed that boy some Howlers as well.

Charles chuckled some more. The boy was clearly overwhelmed by the sight of his perfect little North Star. So overwhelmed that he felt the need to try and wiggle away from Charles and the picture. "Don't be silly," he said squeezing the boy some more. "This picture was taken years ago, but it is just too precious not to show. My little angel of perfection just turned fourteen in May. Poor child, she doesn't like to celebrate her birthday." Charles frowned for a moment. Not exactly the sort of conversation he wanted to get into with this young man. But, perhaps he knew his little princess?

"She will be a forth year this coming term," he continued searching through his wallet for another picture to show. "Little Sweet Strawberry has grown so much. Hated flying, but managed to make the Quidditch team last year. Seeker nonetheless! I was going to try and write up an article for the Daily Prophet all about it, but the idea was shot down." And rather unjustly if he said so himself. "Now...where did I put that picture..."

He continued to flip through the album, not letting go of the boy, looking the picture that his sparkly princess had sent him after making the team.

"She is going to be Prefect this coming term," he said with pride. "She doesn't know that yet as the owl delivering the announcement and badge was delivered to our home back in Japan, but she will once she gets back from America."

And then...HE FOUND THE PICTURE! His eyes lit up and he spun around with the boy, just once, and then pulled the photograph out to show him.

SPOILER!!: you said he should recognize it...*whistles*



"Doesn't she just radiate confidence and poise! It's a wonder those snitches don't just gravitate towards her!"

Mmmhmm. Right. Probably no one does. At least not nice people. And since he never considered sending one, then the man was probably nice, never mind the box he was currently holding.

Treyen made no further comment, he only nodded and half-smiled at appropriate times. No, WAIT, more squeezing! UGH. He seriously was trying to breathe. He was a small boy, after all. Well, his frame was. And this man was probably going to make him shorter thanks to all the squeezing.

The reason for this particular to be rendered speechless as soon as the man started to talk of his daughter was a completely different one. See, he'd thought of Kurumi before...and now the man was saying when her birthday was, and then what year she was in. Then his eyes grew wide again as he mentioned flying and the Quidditch team...AND SEEKER. He grew paler by the second, and eyed the bow of Howlers. Those things were for him, weren't they? Treyen didn't need to see the picture to know that the man was Kurumi's father.

WAIT. WHAT?! PREFECT?! Oh, yes, he was a completely pale boy. Quite possibly an albino by now. He didn't look at the picture, but looked at the man, "Mr. Hollingberry?" he started to get away from him and the box...man alive, he was meeting a Metamorphmagus that was in full control of his abilities and he couldn't even enjoy that.

But, what was he going to say?! He should be running home this instant!

She moved as well?

Curiously, that made Nora feel slightly relieved, since it was confirmed that she wasn't the only one that transferred. "Didn't they like it over there?" ... if that's not a very personal question for someone that she's just met.

Ohh and then there were a lot of names. "It's nice to meet you," but she'll probably stay with Joanna, or else she might get confused... at the beginning, at least. "I'm Nora." No nicknames from that one. Hmph.

But, what was he going to say?! He should be running home this instant!

Charles looked at the picture for a bit longer, not noticing the boy's sudden change in posture or color. There his little girl was, growing up so quickly. It would only be another week or so until she was back in London and he could return to spoiling her rotten.

Poor lad, he was speechless looking at the photograph. Perhaps he was in love with his little princess? That certainly would explain the silence and wide eyed look the boy wore. Really, the boy didn't have to be so surprised. It was perfectly fine to meet the father of the girl you liked.

But then, the boy's color was gone, as if he had seen a ghost. Merlin's beard! Did this boy have the sight? Was he seeing something from the beyond right now? Charles hadn't had too much experience with such things, but he knew that it was best not to panic.

"Are you alright there? You look frightful," he said loosening his grip on the boy a bit.

"Yes, that is me. Charles Hollingberry, reporter for the Daily Prophet," he said, confirming what the boy had said. "So you DO know my little Ambassador of Cuteness! Always a pleasure to meet one of her friends."

Now the boy could be squished a little more.

"I loved it, but my parents thought that Hogwarts will be better for me than the New York Academy for Witchcraft," Joanna explained to Nora. Oh, her old school is so different than Hogwarts. She was delighted knowing that she isn't the only transferred girl in the school, but maybe she's only girl from America.

Joanna tried not express how shocked she was from the fact that Nora didn't have any nicknames. Everyone should have nickname, she even knew that teachers and professors that give each other nicknames. It was really funny hearing her old professors, calling each other by nicknames. She remembered that her Potions professor had a hilarious nickname. Every time she used to hear it, she and her friends began laughing so hard that it actually hurt her stomach. If she's not mistaken the name was Bumble-Stump. Even thinking of it made her want to laugh. "Nice to meet you too, Nora," she said, smiling, thinking of different nicknames which could suit her. Maybe, NoNo (like JoJo), or Nony, or maybe even Niny.

Joanna took out a small red bag, full of sweet skittles. Opening the bag, by ripping off one of the corners, she poured a few skittles into her hand, and asked offering , "Skittles?" Joanna doesn't usually offer her skittles but she always offers her skittles when she meets someone. Most of the time the people accept her offer but usually the purebloods refuse taking skittles because it's a muggle sweet and they haven't got a clue what is a skittle.
