Default The Courtyard



The Leaky Cauldron sits auspiciously as part of the Muggle World, the portal to Diagon Alley. Stepping out the back door of the Leaky Cauldron, it leads to the open patio that is deceivingly large. Once inside the Courtyard the stone path circles around the green area, which is a popular place for young children to relax upon during summer holidays and is also a popular place for, people to lie out and have lunch.

On the green, a tall stone fountain sits and waits for a lucky sickle or two to find its way to the bottom of the fountain. However, the incredible thing about the fountain is the stone is rests upon. The stone floor underneath and surrounding the fountain is charmed to light up with each step a person makes on the stone floor. The color traces the outside of the travelerís foot and each new step is a fresh new color.

Out on the green surrounding the fountain is the home to a garden of flowers that are freshly planted. Each little patch of flowers is also charmed by Harley to smell of a different kind of treat at the Leaky Cauldron, i.e.. Butterbeer Flowers.

Off to the side of the Courtyard, a winding stone pathway leads to a quaint little pond filled with a hundred carp fish that Ryoma had specially imported from Japan. This little pond is tucked in the back of the Courtyard and serves as a little treat to all who happen upon it. Next to the pond is a simple wooden box with a money hole in the top. Dispense ten sickles and the box produces fish food to feed the carp.

Ryoma and Harley ask that everyone, including little witches and wizards, pick up after himself or herself.

She tried to straighten her face, though really she was just smothering the giggles that kept bubbling up in side of her. THe idea of her being like dirt has tickled her, for sure. But then his words were so sweet, so perfectly lovely, that the giggles dissipated of their own accord. "I'm sorry I don't have much of a garden for you to work with," she said sincerely, "But you're welcome to do whatever you fancy with the roof terrace. We could fit some window boxes too. With herbs in." Unfortunately, flats in London didn't come with much green space, and although Hermy had excelled in Herbology at school, she hadn't really had time with the studio and gallery and everything else to make much use of the space she did have..

"We could go there over Christmas..." Hermy said, coming out of her thoughts. "Shut the studio for a couple of weeks. You'd have plenty of time to sort it out, I could paint...we could get a bigger tree than we'd ever fit in the flat..."

His eyes were bright, despite his weathered face. They danced with warmth and love, and Hermy bounced a little more as she ran her hands gently round the collar of his shirt and down the front of his chest. "You saying you technically proposed first, all those years ago?" Her eyes shone. "We could make them. Together. I don't need anything big or posh."

And those three words made her all warm and fuzzy inside. "I love you too, Finn."

He could see she was trying to stifle some giggles, and he was a little confused. He thought he was being rather sweet the way he was describing his connection to gardening and her. She did eventually calm down and that made him feel a little better. He shrugged. I'm sure we'll find someway to participate in gardening a little more. I've picked up some tricks along the way and come to appreciate some of the American varieties of different plants. Some of them also added to his potions in a way he hadn't been able to replicate with some of the European varieties. He smiled. It seemed that she had been so wrapped up in starting her gallery that she hadn't had much time to do some of the little things to make a house a home. He hoped he'd be able to help her some that way.

He smiled. I think that's an excellent idea. Christmas in the stone cottage certainly had it's appeal. We might have to send ahead to get the keepers to do a little extra harvesting of peat for the stove. The house does tend to hold the chill a little more than more modern constructs. He began to mentally plan for what things he'd need to do to get the place prepared.

He shivered a little as her hands gently traveled around his neck. He stroked the small of her back a little absentmindedly as he looked into her gorgeous eyes. His eyebrow raised at the way she summarized his thoughts. I suppose that is technically correct, but the story will always be that you asked me. He liked it better that way. While he felt like they were always together joined in spirit. I'm sure we'll come to an agreement about what suits us best. You always have such wonderfully creative ideas.

He pulled her close to represent the emotions in his heart and his connection to her. He held his left cheek close to hers.

Manolo came back to the table, his arms full of goods. He set the drinks down first, "Two butterbeers for the lady and I," and then set two plates of food down after, "And a choice of a Hippogriffburger or Fish and Chips, I'm fine with either so, don't hesitate to pick your choice!" and finally, the last plate, "and a Dementor's Kiss Delight as dessert for the both of us."

Annalise smiled, taking a gulp out of one of the two butterbeers. Ah yes. Perfection. "Ooh! I don't mind either of these. Should we just share? The best of both worlds!" She laughed, setting her cup down.

And a Dementors Kiss Delight.


"Ooh! Chocolate, thank you so much!" Annalise gushed, her cheeks turning a light shade of pink when she realized how loud and bubbly she was being... She wasn't sure how he'd feel, she hadn't shown him the bubblier side of herself; just the quiet and demure version. Might as well get everything out in the open so he could run if he needed to.

"Thanks." She said again, more quiet this time.

"I'm sorry, honey," Hermy said, rubbing her lips together and holding them like that to maintain a straight face. "It's cute, it really is. I just, well, thought you were implying I'm messy." Which she totally was. Her painting jeans and shirt were covered in splatters, and if it weren't for copies of THe Daily Prophet, the floor would be too. "Herbs," she said with a grin. "I want herbs. In a window box hanging from the kitchen window. Mint, and rosemary, and thyme, and basil..." Wouldn't that look pretty? "And then you can make me some of that amazing rosemary lamb we had at yours once." Nodnod. He'd let her be demanding occasionally, right?

"Peat?" Hermy looked confused. "I thought that was boggy stuff?" She was probably wrong though. She'd just use magic or wood for a fire, but if they used peat then it'd be a learning experience. "A stove would be lovely. We can roast chestnuts on it! And hang up stockings...and curl up on the rug together." Perfect. Just perfect.

She rubbed her hands over his shoulders, and laid her head back into his neck. She sat there quiet and still for a short while thinking, only conscious of the gentle movement of his breathing. "Would you like a proper wedding?" she enquired quietly. "Or would you rather something more spontaneous?" It wasn't like they had much family. The could just go...the two of them. Now.

Finn poked Hermy's nose with his index finger as she tried to hold her lips together. She looked quite fetching at the moment and he was overcome with a desire to help her keep her lips closed. Then she spoke about being messy and he smiled. I wasn't implying anything. It wasn't my painter's pants and button up shirt I picked up off the bathroom floor this morning. And there are days I walk around shimmering like a blooming muggle book vampire with all the glitter that sometimes floats around the house. He liked to tease her about the messes. He wasn't any different when he was shaping the wood. Shavings and dust everywhere and he had his own clothes that bore the stains of many pieces of wood, varnished and lacquered to a glossy sheen.

He listened to her list off the different herbs she wanted grown. That should be easy enough. That will be fine. I don't have any issues with those. I'd like to introduce you to some other flavors I've picked up in my travels as well. I developed a taste for chile peppers. He grinned as she spoke of the lamb. I'll make whatever you'd like me to make.

Yes ma'am. Peat. This will be one of the things he'll teach her about 'their' home. It's a readily available resource. You collect the peat and allow it to dry out and then use if for fuel. It produces an enchanting earthy odor that reminds me of home. He smiled as he thought about the two of them in their thick, woolen sweaters coming in after a day walking through the meadows and sitting close to the fire and enjoying being together.

As they held each other, he thought about what they'd need to plan now. And then she offered an option. Now? He considered it. He thought she should be celebrated more than a spontaneous thing, but they could do something big later. He smiled warmly at her and said, Now would be perfect. Where will we go to get it done this afternoon though?

Both?! Why hadn't he thought of that?? "You are brilliant, Annalise!" He exclaimed, leaning in to peck her on the nose before sitting down across from her.

He took a big swig of butterbeer and placed the two dishes in front of them with the dessert in the middle, "Well then, let's dig in, yeah?" He winked and popped a chip in his mouth.

Awww! He was so cute when he got excited. "I'm glad that you see and understand my inner genius!" Annalise laughed, an even bigger grin forming when he booped her on the nose. Nose boops were the cutest.

She watched him curiously as he swigged down his butterbeer and began making quick work of the food. "Yeah, let's!" Annalise smiled, moving so she was sitting even closer to him. He was so... Perfect.


For her at least. She hadn't talked to anyone.. or anything as much as she had talked to him in months. She'd mostly stuck to plants..

It was so strange how the entire world could change within the span of an hour. One event could alter the course of a life and throw everything into chaos. Her life felt like a ship that had come loose from it's moorings and was now adrift at sea. The weather was kicking the waves up and all she could do was hang on and pray for a break.

Syd walked into the Leaky Cauldron mechanically. Unlike her usual attire she had thrown on a pair of sensible jeans, a sweater with sleeves that draped past her hands, and a pair of sneakers. She had been in such a daze that she had even forgotten to wear a pair of gloves. After the meeting with the private investigator she had scribbled out a note with shaking hands and left.

Her emotions were going haywire and she was afraid she would explode at any minute. Without really thinking about it she ordered a butterbeer and headed out onto the patio to wait for Gidyun. Maybe he could make some sense out all this. She desperately needed advice and a friend. Given how certain people were avoiding her Gidyun had been her next obvious choice.

He'd gotten notice from Syd that she wanted to meet with him. The first time he'd met her back in Italy had come as a surprise to him but he'd always had a soft spot in his heart for her. Her life hadn't been the easiest and somehow they'd both helped each other come to terms with many aspects of their lives. His past being just as harried if not more so than hers. He was happily married finally to Becca but he still kept in touch with her and was delighted to hear she'd moved to England and worked in the ministry as well only almost a year ago now.

When she'd called for him to meet, he'd not questioned it at all, and planned on the meeting with her. Whatever it was that had drawn her to him again, wasn't unwelcome. He'd never thought of her as more than a friend, but it was nice to have a friend that each of them could count on.

Entering the Leaky Cauldron, he stopped at the bar to get a drink and went through to the courtyard in the back. Seeing Syd he headed directly for her. "Hey" he said softly with a sort of smile on his face concern showing on it when he finally got a good look at her "Everything alright?"

Syd paced around the fountain and took a couple sips from her drink. It had been a while since she had seen Gidyun. They had kept in touch with the odd letters here and there and of course he hd been the one to help her get the job at the Ministry. Him and Becca were doing well which was good. Considering the relationship they now had she considered him to be a brother of sorts and she desperately needed her brother.

She valued his opinion though since his past was just as riddled with heartache as hers was. Not to mention that when she had been in her downward spiral he had picked her up and given her a direction. She was indebted to him. Now of course she was going to add to the debt by asking him to help her with this monumental problem.

His voice had her spinning around and throwing herself into his arms. Her blocks were up and she was careful not to touch skin so she wouldn't see anything she didn't need to. She squeezed him tight and had to fight back tears.

She pulled back abruptly and wiped her eyes. "They found me Gidyun."

After a few seconds of silence, (because he just had to have a moment with the precious food), he spoke up, "I'm so glad I ran into you today." He shifted to face her more, "I am so unbelievably happy. You wouldn't believe the stuff I've gone through today and being with you now has made up for all of that."
