Was that, Ellsworth Bott Toussaint?!

Had he died and gone to some sort of beauty and fashion heaven? He couldn't even imagine a nicer place to be in the entire world than here right now. But now he had a huge dilemma, persue his own career and possibly miss meeting Evolette McKenna first, or stay and be the first to shake her hand and get an autograph before all the losers in here waiting.

He could make it over there and back before she began surely.


Walking over to the woman standing by the banner, Riley cleared his throat and spoke up, a tad nervously. "Hello Miss Toussaint, I'm Riley Sinclair and I, uh... was just wondering if you happened to recieve my owl with my resume."
Oh, FANTASTIC. The very first person she'd encountered was actually male. What a wonderful opening for Primpernelles if they were pulling in such a diverse clientele. Male and female, and judging by the fact the Minister and his wife were here too... all ages.

Ellsworth gave the boy a once over. Her assistant handled most of the applicants, but she did remember this one. "Mr. Sinclair, of course I received your owl. We're in the process of responding, but you're invited to come in for a session. Bring your portfolio, of course. We're expanding our male line in the near future."[/color]

Really it was clever to show up on Evee's tail, since most of them were pointed her way, and they hadn't had much time to adjust at the sudden appearance of Celandine Toussaint Kettleburn, her perfect (but admittedly unremarkable to the press outside of those interested in academia), and her sister-in-law, the CEO and creator of the Ellsberry line.

OF COURSEEEeE Cela was wearing HER perfume, Breathe. So pretty! Even seeing Lafay here didn't steal away her smile. The former Ravenclaw and former head girl, class of '72, simply gave the woman a polite nod of acknowledgement as she swept into the room, all sunshine smiles for everyone present. Where was the new proprietress?
"I think the buggy is too big for this space. You can't even have people queue up properly without them having to step over my feet," Cope responded thoughtfully before sliding it around and parking it behind the podium. There was an eep of protest from the buggy, but he was pleased that people could get to Cela now if they wanted.

"What... am I meant to do here, Cel?"

With that being said, Chiara made her way over to the lounge area, feeling in the mood for some, erm, socialization. Not her favorite thing to do but, there's always room for improvement. The young Primpernelles enthusiast scanned the area, looking for someone to "practice her skills on". That shouldn't be the slightest bit complicated.. Just like that, she "ran into" a girl that looked around her age!"Why hello there! I am Chiara," she said with a smile as she extended her hand. Hopefully this wouldn't falter...
Demetria was almost ready to make her way to the gift bags but at the same time she didn't want to look greedy and needy and go right in for the grab. So she hovered away from the table and looked around. Maybe she should sit down or something. As she was turning she almost ran into an extended hand. She smiled at the young women and took the hand lightly. "Nice to meet you Chiara. I'm Demetria."

Evolette had decided that he was going to stay outside, though. She didn't want him getting in the way of her and her fans.

She surveyed the room, taking in the people who had managed to make their way inside. Even the Minister of Magic was there. Huh. Evolette normally wouldn't be able to care less about the Minister of Magic, she didn't live in Britain, he was of no consequence to her. But, it just so happened that the man was the father of her close friend. She'd known him long before he'd become Minister.

She smiled at the man and gave a little wave as she seemed to catch his eye for a moment. She'd have to go say hello later, of course.

"Indigo." She spoke, stopping beside the man, "How is everything?" He looked... distracted.
Indigo looked up from checking out his latest shot (one of the Toussaint clan, if he was guessing correctly) and put on a smile for his employer. "Everything looks like it's going well so far, Mrs. Ellerby. Things are starting to pick up the pace nicely."

Well more people were slowly streaming in, anyway. Indigo's bright blue eyes flashed toward a young man loitering just behind Evolette. Judging from his sharp attire and hopeful expression, Indy was pegging him as either an aspiring model or a hardcore EE fan.

The designer leaned in toward his boss. "I think someone wants his picture with you," he tilted his head ever so slightly toward the boy behind her and shifted the camera in his hands.

After Riley had looked in one of the many make-up mirrors posted around the place he looked back eagerly to where the supermodel stood, but she didn't seem ready to greet fans yet. Well this was just torture but she was very important and all so he would wait. practically holding his breath the whole time


As he looked around the shop from where he stood waiting for his idol to be ready to finally meet him, Riley caught sight of practically the only person in the room that could sway his attention.

Evee had noticed Cela and Ells walk in behind her, and she waved at the group. Cela had BABY with her. HEHE. Ugh. She was going to have to do some baby!gushing later.

"Lovely." She commented to Indigo's small report. He did seem to know what was going on, so perhaps he was with it after all. "Any chance I'll be getting to see that boy of yours today?" She added curiously. It was still weird when she thought about the whole situation. Weird. So coincidental and... fateful.

Evolette raised an eyebrow, turning around to see a young man standing, looking polite and patient. Well, she never turned down a fan. "Hello there." She smiled at him, holding out her hand for a shake, "I'm Evolette McKenna."

Obviously.

"What's your name?"

Maybe the shopkeeper was a secret fan of her work? She did have a rejuvenating potion... but that was... not exactly... legal... nor was it widely known she trafficked in black market potions.

"Captain?" She called.

Madame Primpernelles Beautifying Potions, it read. Beautifying potions? His eyebrows creased inward a little as he wondered what sort of business he had at a place that sold beautifying potions. Hearing his wife's voice, he turned back toward the entrance. He could, maybe, meet a new acquaintance or two today. He was always looking for somebody else to do business with.

Stepping into the shop, he fell into place at his wife's side. "A beautifying potions store," he said, glancing around the lounge. "Hmm..." He attempted eye contact at a face across the room and nodded a polite greeting. With a smirk, as he just couldn't help it, he tilted his head sideways toward his wife and whispered, "You going to start brewing beauty products or something, Potions Mistress?"

She eyed the woman who waved to them... who was she?

"Of course I'm not suggesting you use," and then he gestured toward the products, "any of this."

"It was a joke, Hecate. I figured you wouldn't brew anything of the sort," he said with a grin. Even though she could and would likely outsell anything in the establishment. He gave a polite wave to a woman across the room. "Inez Grey, Armen Recard's replacement in Magical Transportation," he said. He could almost read her mind and follow her line of thinking about the woman. "...and what's put you in such a mood?" She'd said she wasn't in the best of moods, after all.

... plus. She didn't like this pretty woman working so close with her husband.
[/color]


Lucifera Valentine was already in the shop awaiting her guests when she saw Hecate Lafay walk in first, shortly followed by the minister. She wanted to give them some breathing space before walking over to them, but when she realized no one else was giving them space, and there seemed to be a group of people lining up to speak to them, she gracefully pushed through the crowd with an obviously fake apologetic look and a few eye rolls here and there. When she reach the couple she spoke firmly and assertively. "Madame Lafay," she leaned over and softly pressed her right cheek against Lafay's, then did the same for the left one, and as she did this she made a soft smacking sound with her lips. "I'm Lucifera Valentine, the shopkeeper. We're honored to have you here, you smell lovely," she said as she returned to an upright position. "I have followed some of your work, and I must offer you an opportunity, if you ever brew a beauty-related potion, to display and sell your work here."

She then turned to the Minister and instead of kissing him, she took his hand and shook it lightly. "Hello, Minister, I'm Lucifera Valentine, the shopkeeper. Thank you for taking time off your busy schedule, Minister Greingoth. We truly appreciate it." She said the words and affirmed her statement with another nod. She didn't really know what else to say to him, plus he was a little too tall and she didn't like looking up to men. "Thank you for helping us with the nargles problem, by the way. I'm not sure I could have taken care of that without some of your staff members."


SPOILER!!: Ern RPing with herself

Still... best laid plans. With her sister-in-law and brother-in-law, plus two small children, in tow, they showed up whenever schedules dictated. Even if that meant that several of the special guests had arrived already.

Ellsworth touched bottles and phials as she entered the store, although she waved at several people waiting near the door, including Evolette and the Minister's Wife. "Look! Would it be terribly cliched to stand under the banner?"



"Terribly," Copernicus Kettleburn agreed dryly, although he didn't see that there was anywhere more logical for Ellsworth to stand. Why... exactly had they come with her?

He shifted the double stroller carefully through the aisle. It was nice to get the babies out whenever possible, especially for such a special day for Ellsworth and Celandine, but this was a precarious sort of place for little fists and feet. Charlotte watched everything with bright eyes, and he was just SURE that as soon as he parked, she'd find a way to turn herself purple.


Out of the corner of her eye Lucifera caught a very familiar face. She approached Miss Ellsworth, and gave her a light tap in the shoulder. "I hope I'm not interrupting," she said sternly. Actually she did hope she was interrupting, she secretly enjoyed interrupting people. "I'm Lucifera Valentine, the one you who has been contacting you for the past few weeks." She performed the same cheek-to-cheek kiss she had done to Lafay, then gestured to the Ellsworth displays. Hopefully she would be pleased with the displays, although there was still time for alterations if they weren't to her liking. "We are very happy and extremely honored to sell your items here and to have you here for our re-opening."

"And this is..." she said turning to the gentleman next to her.


SPOILER!!: Celandine

Lucifer was bouncing from one person to another, but in between her nostrils tingled at the smell of a very familiar fragrance. "Ah, I can see you've already helped yourself to some of the Ellsworth products," she commented as she lightly rested her hand on one of the lady's shoulder. That was supposed to be a hug, a warm and fuzzy one at that.

She knew the other girl young woman's name, she did. It rhymed with something, or sounded like something. The former prefect was trying to remember as she nodded her head. "Yeah.... Ellie?" Not Treyen's Ellie, but the OTHER Ellie. Mmhmm. There was the connection she was looking for! "How are you?" Was SHE wondering who this woman talking to them was? Or why she thought them beauty consultants? Hehe.

She was talking to two other woman, true, but that didn't mean her eyes couldn't wander around to see who else was showing up to this opening. A lot of important people if the cameras said anything. And while she recognized a good few of them, and wondered what some were doing there, she really was only excited to see just one special guest. Or beauty consultant. Or whoever the woman was looking for. Who really knew?

"Cela!" Arya waaaaaved over at her friend, but didn't go over yet cause it was rude to just leave her current conversations, right? It so was. Her chocolate eyes moved from the blonde over to the young woman at her side, and then the older woman who had them confused with someone else. "We have to go say hey to the special guests and all, but if you still want help with finding consultants I'm still willing!" The eighteen year old was always willing to lend a helping hand.

Starting with giving one to Ellie (that was her name, yeah??). She reached out and took the girl by the hand, giving her a gentle tug towards where Cela and family were, and a cheerful look. They were talking yeah? They could finish over there!

She had recieved his owl? That was assuring seeing as Ellsberry was one of the close to thirty establishments he had contacted after his last trip to the Alley for stationary, with little to no responses yet.

"Oh, thank you so much. I will definately bring all that I have. Thanks again Miss. Toussaint I shall see you soon." he nodded smoothly and flashed a smile at her and the man and woman by her side with, a baby? before heading back over to Evolette.

Obviously.

"What's your name?"


Riley had been standing as close as he dared to the model and had missed when the photographer had mentioned him to Evolette, thus initiating the contact that had just commensed. Truthfully had he seen what the guy had done, he probably would have hugged him in appreciation.

But now SHE was holding out her hand to shake his. And asking for his name.

WHAT WAS HIS NAME AGAIN?!

'Come on Riley, speak you idiot! Speak!!' The voice inside of his head was shouting at his stupidity. How could he freeze up in a moment as pivital as this one. He was meeting his idol for Merlin's sake. He had waited for this moment for years.

"Uh..hi. Miss Ellerby I'm R-Riley," the twenty-year-old cleared his throught, sounding more like himself before continuing. "Riley Sinclair, its a pleasure to finally meet you."

"How nice to see you guys here. I saw it in a magazine the other day and decided I just had to be here, this shop is such a life saver, isn't it?" she said with a chukle to the Minister's wife. Women-to-women chitchat was always nice.

"Minister Greingoth you look spiffy today, ready for the Prophet photo-opts I assume?" she said with another grin to the man, her boss.
Spiffy?! You Guys?!? Who spoke that way...

Photo-opts?

She was the one who was invited... Alexander was simply her 'plus one.'

And how in Hades was this shop a life saver? She would die if she wasn't pretty?! Merlin, she HATED this type of woman...

She simply smiled at her, and held her husband's arm.

As he did so, he placed his arm on his wife's neck, gave it a loving rub, and then let his dangle by his side again.

He grinned politely when the Grey woman appeared by their sides. "A lifesaver," he said, in a 'hmph' kind of tone. "Well I guess that just depends on who you are, now doesn't it?" He, for one, wouldn't be heading home with a grab bag full of samples. He was actually hoping to make ties with a few of the elite. He instinctively straightened his tie and jacket when his looked was commented on. "Well, you know how it, Miss Grey. You've got to look your best for just the right sort of people."

He gestured to his wife. "Have you met my wife?" he asked. "Professor Hecate Lafay of Hogwarts? I was just telling her how you're the new department head of Transportation."
... you had to look your best for just the right people?!

Well, at least she was introduced as his wife. And as Hecate Lafay.

... wait... He was? When did he just tell her this woman was the new... Oh... he meant right now. Right. "Charmed..." She said nodding to the woman.

"Madame Lafay," she leaned over and softly pressed her right cheek against Lafay's, then did the same for the left one, and as she did this she made a soft smacking sound with her lips. "I'm Lucifera Valentine, the shopkeeper. We're honored to have you here, you smell lovely," she said as she returned to an upright position. "I have followed some of your work, and I must offer you an opportunity, if you ever brew a beauty-related potion, to display and sell your work here."

She then turned to the Minister and instead of kissing him, she took his hand and shook it lightly. "Hello, Minister, I'm Lucifera Valentine, the shopkeeper. Thank you for taking time off your busy schedule, Minister Greingoth. We truly appreciate it." She said the words and affirmed her statement with another nod. She didn't really know what else to say to him, plus he was a little too tall and she didn't like looking up to men. "Thank you for helping us with the nargles problem, by the way. I'm not sure I could have taken care of that without some of your staff members."
The woman did the air kiss thing...

Weird...

She was about to hex the woman for doing that, when she realized she was the owner of the shop. "Oh..." So she was interested in her potioneering. That made her feel much much better. "I shall certainly consider it..." She said and looked about the shop. "You seem to have a good amount of stock... do you have any suggestions... for me?"

... she looked at Alexander. "Nargles?"

He eyed his wife a split second longer then did another sweeping glance across the room. As he did so, he placed his arm on his wife's neck, gave it a loving rub, and then let his dangle by his side again.

He grinned politely when the Grey woman appeared by their sides. "A lifesaver," he said, in a 'hmph' kind of tone. "Well I guess that just depends on who you are, now doesn't it?" He, for one, wouldn't be heading home with a grab bag full of samples. He was actually hoping to make ties with a few of the elite. He instinctively straightened his tie and jacket when his looked was commented on. "Well, you know how it, Miss Grey. You've got to look your best for just the right sort of people."

He gestured to his wife. "Have you met my wife?" he asked. "Professor Hecate Lafay of Hogwarts? I was just telling her how you're the new department head of Transportation."

She simply smiled at her, and held her husband's arm.



... you had to look your best for just the right people?!

Well, at least she was introduced as his wife. And as Hecate Lafay.

... wait... He was? When did he just tell her this woman was the new... Oh... he meant right now. Right. "Charmed..." She said nodding to the woman.


"I guess so. Obviously you wouldn't need any of these products to stay looking your finest." He was quite the handsome man after all. "Now your wife here and I know that some of us women wouldn't dare go out without putting on our faces." she giggled shortly and pushed a strand of her hair behind her ear.

"Oh here you just made it worse." Inez had watched the minister mess with his tie which just made it more askew. She reached her hands up to his chest and quickly straightened it out. "There you go, Alexander."

Oh they were back to his wife, she didn't seem very sociable. "Oh no I don't think we officially met. Inez Grey." she stuck her hand out to shake it before speaking again, something that had bothered her. "Lafay? I see you chose to keep your maiden name, surely as to not confuse your past collegues?" A silly reason if you asked her, a woman should take her husband's last name, especially if they had a man like she did.

She added curiously. It was still weird when she thought about the whole situation. Weird. So coincidental and... fateful.

Evolette raised an eyebrow, turning around to see a young man standing, looking polite and patient. Well, she never turned down a fan. "Hello there." She smiled at him, holding out her hand for a shake, "I'm Evolette McKenna."

Obviously.

"What's your name?"

But now SHE was holding out her hand to shake his. And asking for his name.

WHAT WAS HIS NAME AGAIN?!

'Come on Riley, speak you idiot! Speak!!' The voice inside of his head was shouting at his stupidity. How could he freeze up in a moment as pivital as this one. He was meeting his idol for Merlin's sake. He had waited for this moment for years.

"Uh..hi. Miss Ellerby I'm R-Riley," the twenty-year-old cleared his throught, sounding more like himself before continuing. "Riley Sinclair, its a pleasure to finally meet you."


Oh. Alfie. Indigo cheered a bit just at mention of his son. "Of course. I think... Kae wanted to take him to Florean's after this." This shindig/beauty thing. "You're welcome to join us, of course." Kae adored Evee and vice versa he thought.

Turning at the same time Evolette did, Indigo immediately hitched up his best camera for a few quick, sneaky shots. He caught the shock and adoration on Riley's face in a series of fast frames, then turned the camera on the calm and collected model/designer/businesswoman next to him.

Heh. He'd call this series "STARSTRUCK." Yesssss.

Victoria Marie Coral had decided to get out of her stuffy apartment and go to the reopening of the beauty store in Diagon Alley after all her wedding was in less than a month and she could maybe get beauty tips. Unfortunately Isa couldn't come since she had work. That didn't matter to Marie though. She was excited to go to a beauty shop.

Marie opened the door and peeked in. All of this beauty stuff was amazing. Maybe if she didn't go into teaching like she thought she could become part of the beauty industry. Marie walked in briskly on her heels and took a peek at the store and all of the important people walking around. Wow!

Candi September Powers was extremely excited to be going to the grand reopening of the beauty store in Diagon Alley. Plus the new shopkeeper felt that it would be good to support her fellow shopkeepers. Candi stepped into the store and quickly smoothed out her dress to make sure there were no wrinkles. No matter how much Candi enjoyed working at Scribbulus, beauty was her world. The classic blonde had grown up being a spoiled by her model mother. So this was like living her youth again.

She performed the same cheek-to-cheek kiss she had done to Lafay, then gestured to the Ellsworth displays. Hopefully she would be pleased with the displays, although there was still time for alterations if they weren't to her liking. "We are very happy and extremely honored to sell your items here and to have you here for our re-opening."

"And this is..." she said turning to the gentleman next to her.


Lucifer was bouncing from one person to another, but in between her nostrils tingled at the smell of a very familiar fragrance. "Ah, I can see you've already helped yourself to some of the Ellsworth products," she commented as she lightly rested her hand on one of the lady's shoulder. That was supposed to be a hug, a warm and fuzzy one at that.
Ellsworth accepted the kisses and the close contact, although she was pleased to pull away as soon as was polite. She trusted the Ministry had people around to prevent anything undue from happening to her, and it was very unlikely that the woman who had invited them would wish her harm... but there weren't many people who should be allowed to KISS her. Her husband, her siblings, her babies... occasionally her in-laws because SOME of them were so dear to her.

"Miss Valentine, you've done a marvelous job organizing all of this. Ellsberry is delighted that you're carrying our line, and we hope to continue this partnership in the future." All true. "I'm sure Ber wishes she could be here today. Perhaps she'll show up later," she added, referring to her partner and co-owner Strawberry Sorbet.

At the woman's glance and questions regarding Cope and Cela, Ellsworth couldn't help but give her a bland look. Surely their faces weren't entirely unknown to anyone who picked up a Witch Weekly from time to time, and as an invited Ellsberry spokesperson, Cela's name was on the advertisements for this event.

"I'm not sure you've met my brother-in-law, Copernicus Kettleburn. He's married to Celandine, who is kind enough to stand in as one of my spokesmodels when it suits her. Those two little peanuts are their children, Charlotte and Callum. Doesn't Cela look marvelous, considering she just had Callum a little over a month ago?" And the answer was YES. Ridiculously so.

Oh. She'd lost the lovely young man to Evolette's charms. Ells shrugged at Evee over the boy's head and turned away with a grin.

"You're welcome. And it's Mrs. Toussaint." Because she was married, see? Bott was the maiden name, Toussaint was the married, and both were equally important to her.

"What... am I meant to do here, Cel?"

Cela smiled over her shoulder at Ells, noting her talking to a fan or something, and then put her attention on her husband and babies. "Look after Charlotte and Callum, be your wonderful charming self. Kiss me sometimes because I like it when you do that." She twinkled at him a bit and looked in on the buggy, giving an alert and interested Charlotte and then a sleepy quiet Callum little kisses before straightening up and giving her hair a fluff.

"And make sure nobody steals them." Mmmhmm. Cos her babies were precious. We're looking at youuuu clucky!Evee. Teehee.

Cela laughed gently and smiled between the shopkeeper and her sister-in-law, whilst being sure to slip one hand into Cope's and give it a gentle, reassuring squeeze before letting go.

"Oh really, Ellsworth." Cela blushed prettily, in a practised sort of social way. "As do you." After all, it wasn't exactly a lifetime ago that Katherine had been born... and Ells was wearing a far more impressive outfit than Celandine, who was still a bit put out that she had any baby weight at all, even if it was probably only notable to her.

She turned her attention to Lucifera. "Please, call me Cela!" Teehee. "And I would say that its the opposite, Ells here has helped herself to my signature scent and I can't say I mind in the least!"

And was it strange at all that a part of Cela still perked up at the 'Toussaint' stuff? She was a Kettleburn now!

"I'm so glad Primpernelles has reopened, I've always found it an interesting store, and so much more to it than people think; not all beauty is purely cosmetic after all. Confidence is key and I think Primpernelles has always done young witches the service of bolstering that!"

She waited for them to come over, since they were on the approach, and smiled encouragingly at a few others who had just arrived.

Welcome! Welcome! They were all so very welcome. Teehee.

Oh good, she DID remember her name. Ellie was about to be very disappointed, but no more. Ellie smiled and nodded. "That's me," she said, beaming. She was just a happy girl today. And had been for several weeks. "I'm doing quite well, and yourself?" Although, she was quite confused about all these people who had suddenly crowded the room. And why the blonde woman asked if they were beauty consultants...

In her confusion, Ellie's eyes wandered back to the Minister of Magic. He was so... manly. And... intimidating. Part of her wanted to meet him and the other part wanted to just stay away from him.

Arya's sudden exclamation tore Ellie's attention away from the man. Her eyes followed her former classmates and rested on a girl that looked a few years older than them. Slightly familiar, maybe? Hm. Ellie didn't really know what to do. But apparently it wasn't up to her anymore because she was suddenly being tugged across the room by Arya.

Flailing slightly, Ellie awkwardly waved goodbye to the nice woman they were sort of talking to and followed Arya. Not that she really had a choice, but it was fine. She would've standing alone awkwardly if it weren't for her. This "Cela" was rather pretty. Was she a beauty consultant? Ellie smiled at the older young woman. "Hello," she said, taking her stand next to Arya. Sooo... what now?

Rodrigo De Lacerda

Default Anyone? Please? Don't make me choose someone xD
James is my REAL name | Pokah Face | Scheming Marauder | True Marauder | Foster the People

Had it not been a more high-profile event, and had he not received the semi-invitation, which was more like an advertisement really, while he was working on Level 2 in the Ministry of Magic, Roderigo De Lacerda probably would never have stepped foot into a shop like Madame Primpernelles. He wasn't too much of a high maintenance wizard, and thus would never really have need to purchase any sort of beautifying supplies.

The notice he saw at the Ministry requested the mandatory presence of Hit Wizards and Patrol Officers of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, but also suggested that all employees of the Department, which would include Roderigo in his Wizengamot Division position, to attend this event. As such, he decided to wear his nicest dress robes; sleek kashmir robes that were a deep maroon color with a black collared dress shirt beneath and matching dress pants. His usual curly mess of hair was straightened and sleeked back. But that was as far as he would go in terms of the cosmetics or beauty category.

Nevertheless, the Spaniard did enjoy gatherings and social events. He tried not to allow the overly obnoxious amounts of cosmetic merchandise and the slightly nauseating fumes that wafted from the large cauldron get to him. Taking note to not enter the raffle or bother with the gift bags (why would he need make up?), he took too walking around, smiling at those he knew. He noticed that the Minister of Magic himself was here, accompanied by the scary Potions Professor he had dealt with for two years when he was at Hogwarts. Not necessarily having the desire to force a conversation with the two (Professory Lafay looked like she was in an ever sourer mood than normally), he stood near a less crowded section of the shop, near a shelf with an eye watering display of assorted Ellsberry products. He hoped dearly that someone, anyone, would come and talk to him and rescue him from this horridness!

Don't Cross the Book | who turned out the | Lights Lennox

Well ... Lights felt slightly awkward, and very out of place in her non-fancy outfit. She'd come to work dressed for a day at the desk, and then been pleasantly surprised with this job. But what exactly was she supposed to do here? Blend in? Stay to the side looking impassive? What do you want from me?! she felt like shrieking. Although, she had to admit, this was pretty cool. Being at the launch of the new beauty shop, and seeing for herself what all the fuss was about with the new products, was something Lights would have just loved - if she wasn't her on a job. She sighed, folding her arms and leaning against a wall with her ankles crossed, looking around for any familiar faces. Hel-lo MLE? Anyone know what we're doing here?

Just as Lights was going to pack in the 'trying to look like she was supposed to be here as opposed to lost' act, she saw another equally out-of-place-looking person and decided that he was in the same boat as her. So naturally, she went right up behind him and tapped him on the shoulder. "Hey," she smiled. "I'm Lights. I'm guessing you're in this for MLE too?" Wild shot in the dark there, but that was perfectly normal for her.

As soon as Roxanne had seen the note on the MLE noticeboard, she had run home to change out of her work clothes and into something more suitable for a store opening. She needed a party of some sorts after the week she'd had! So when she arrived, her only goal was to mix and mingle with different and hopefully interesting people. Not that there weren't interesting people in her office. She just saw them everyday. Anyway, it seemed like she was one of the first few MLEers there. Hmm… guess they just weren't the party type.

She decided that before she jumped into anything, she would scope out the scene first. After all, she wanted to know what exactly she was jumping into. So she stood off to one side beside a shelf and took it all in.

Sarca stood to the side of the shop, not let taking any of the bags or even really looking at the merchandise. Ge was more interested in watching the crowd who were filling the place. He watched them talk to each other with a slightly bored look on his face.

Madame Primpernelles Beautifying Potions, it read. Beautifying potions? His eyebrows creased inward a little as he wondered what sort of business he had at a place that sold beautifying potions. Hearing his wife's voice, he turned back toward the entrance. He could, maybe, meet a new acquaintance or two today. He was always looking for somebody else to do business with.

Stepping into the shop, he fell into place at his wife's side. "A beautifying potions store," he said, glancing around the lounge. "Hmm..." He attempted eye contact at a face across the room and nodded a polite greeting. With a smirk, as he just couldn't help it, he tilted his head sideways toward his wife and whispered, "You going to start brewing beauty products or something, Potions Mistress?"
You don't bloody say! Was Sarca Sning's eyes playing tricks on him, or was the MINISTER OF MAGIC stepping into the shop. What in Merlin's flying sock's was he doing in a beauty shop?

The department head smiled brightly as the shop came into view and excitedly scurried through the doors with a polite nod to the shopkeeper. The woman made plans to stop by agian and speak to her but she wanted to explore the products first.

Ah the Minister and his wife were here. The woman smiled and waved smally across the room at the two, hoping for at least a nod.

AND A DEPARTMENT HEAD? Okay, maybe the new department head being here wasn't strange, but both of them here? Was this some sort of gathering for important dignitaries? Was the new department head from Mysteries going to pop up now too? Or Evander Bole? This was most interesting. Sning watched her as she approached the Minister.

... plus. She didn't like this pretty woman working so close with her husband.

Oh they were waving back? Surely a sign she should go over and socialize.

Walking across the crowded shop was certainly easier than the street outside but still a task in her heels. After a minute of manuvering around displays and giggling girls here and there, the Inez finally arrive infront of Alexander and his...wife. She taught at Hogwarts right?

"How nice to see you guys here. I saw it in a magazine the other day and decided I just had to be here, this shop is such a life saver, isn't it?" she said with a chukle to the Minister's wife. Women-to-women chitchat was always nice.

"Minister Greingoth you look spiffy today, ready for the Prophet photo-opts I assume?" she said with another grin to the man, her boss.

Alexander's eyebrows creased inward. and a frown spread quickly across his face. He knew that tone all too well, and he also knew that nothing he could do or say would fix it at the moment. He eyed his wife a split second longer then did another sweeping glance across the room. As he did so, he placed his arm on his wife's neck, gave it a loving rub, and then let his dangle by his side again.

He grinned politely when the Grey woman appeared by their sides. "A lifesaver," he said, in a 'hmph' kind of tone. "Well I guess that just depends on who you are, now doesn't it?" He, for one, wouldn't be heading home with a grab bag full of samples. He was actually hoping to make ties with a few of the elite. He instinctively straightened his tie and jacket when his looked was commented on. "Well, you know how it, Miss Grey. You've got to look your best for just the right sort of people."

He gestured to his wife. "Have you met my wife?" he asked. "Professor Hecate Lafay of Hogwarts? I was just telling her how you're the new department head of Transportation."
Snich edged closer to the famous trio. He suddenly pretended to be fascinated by a bag of beauty products nearby.

Paris walked into the lounge and looked around.

She might be a tad overdressed she knew, but no one would accuse Paris Greenwood of not looking stunning no matter the occasion.

And besides it was a social event and though she was now a career woman she was first a socialite and she was not going to miss an gathering that pulled together this many important people. Even if she didn't know half of them because frankly, they weren't that important in her sphere of influence. The Minister was important because he was the minister, not because he found the cure for dragon pox or anything.

Paris giggled to herself as she circled around the room slowly looking for a familier face.

She didn't mind being her own center of gravity, but she did like to have hanger ons in her orbit.

He wasn't too much of a high maintenance wizard, and thus would never really have need to purchase any sort of beautifying supplies.

The notice he saw at the Ministry requested the mandatory presence of Hit Wizards and Patrol Officers of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, but also suggested that all employees of the Department, which would include Roderigo in his Wizengamot Division position, to attend this event. As such, he decided to wear his nicest dress robes; sleek kashmir robes that were a deep maroon color with a black collared dress shirt beneath and matching dress pants. His usual curly mess of hair was straightened and sleeked back. But that was as far as he would go in terms of the cosmetics or beauty category.

Nevertheless, the Spaniard did enjoy gatherings and social events. He tried not to allow the overly obnoxious amounts of cosmetic merchandise and the slightly nauseating fumes that wafted from the large cauldron get to him. Taking note to not enter the raffle or bother with the gift bags (why would he need make up?), he took too walking around, smiling at those he knew. He noticed that the Minister of Magic himself was here, accompanied by the scary Potions Professor he had dealt with for two years when he was at Hogwarts. Not necessarily having the desire to force a conversation with the two (Professory Lafay looked like she was in an ever sourer mood than normally), he stood near a less crowded section of the shop, near a shelf with an eye watering display of assorted Ellsberry products. He hoped dearly that someone, anyone, would come and talk to him and rescue him from this horridness!


Kyle walked around the store for a bit before she finally spotted someone who looked almost half as entertained as herself. Unbuttoning the obviously not needed raincoat she made her way towards the display of eye watering products by Ellsberry. She didn’t get the importance of eye water.

Raising her eyebrow she looked down at the display infront of her and kept walking until she felt something. Warmth. Looking up she realized she was about one inch away from someone.

Someone she didn’t know. It wasn’t like walking into Simon wasn’t awkward but walking into a complete stranger - was just odd.

“Sorry” she flushed as she took a step back from the guy in front of her. He didn’t look familiar - maybe he hadn’t gone to Hogwarts...but he looked about her age.

Miss Neptune Bott had seen no reason at all to be on time. She HAD found reason to be late though - which was which shoes to wear???? Considering she was THE INSPIRATION for a whole line of shoes within the Ellsberry company, Neptune had to make THE perfect choice.

And naturally, she did. Always. Her heels were high, blue, golden accents, and absolutely stunning. In said heels, she tapped and sashayed from her apartment to the familiar Alley.

Upon her entrance to Primpenell's, Neptune wiggled her fingers at her sister, Ellsworth, and to Celandine and Evolette, as well. Hello, people and family. Hello. Ta, even. But she wasn't here for them, she was here to be seen, and to .... well what else? Be seen. Oh and so Ellsworth would keep sending her clothes and shoes and stuff.

Oh boy.

Or man, rather. He looked a little out of place, so Neptune Bott, being the kind soul she was - nudged over his way. She also wiggled her fingers in greeting to him, giggled, and .... struck a subtle pose (if such a thing exists) with her hands on her hips, head cocked, Bott-on-a-mission. "I hope you don't mind my saying, but you look a little out of place. Are you here to buy something for a girlfriend? Wife? You must let me help." She was GOOD at that sort of thing, EXPERT even, did he KNOW? Neptune gave the man a solemn, big-eyed nod. He MUST.

Emmaline felt herself turning red as she entered the shop. This wasn't usually a place she shopped but she was a girl after all. She needed Sleakezy's Hair Potion and the white gift bag sounded interesting. She couldn't be at Hogwarts all year looking funny.

This was all pretty exciting. Daniella was excited for the reopening of the shop. Hopefully they would get a lot of business at it would all be fun. They had also worked pretty hard to make the shop be as epically awesome as it was. So getting lots of customers would be pretty epic. So far there seemed to be quite a good number of people here, which Ella liked. The reopening was going well so far. Just hopefully these people would keep on coming on coming to the shop once the reopening had finished. She was sure people would keep coming. Everyone wanted to beautiful, and not everyone was graced with being beautiful for their entire lives. So Ella assumed that their shop would always have a good amount of business.

With her pretty summer dress on Ella was stood, with a big smile on her face. Today was the day, and she was definetly ready to make the wizarding world a much prettier place.

Paris couldn't believe the level of drab clothing that was being presented at this "gala". It was uncanny that that many people could be boring all at one time.

She picked up a flute of Nettlewine and circled the room again. Looking at the potions and shoes on display. Some of it was cute to say that least. Something she would let her daughter play with, but never wear or use seriously.

Paris stopped to look at the hair color potion and her eyes were drawn to a wispy little thing standing near one of the displays. "Oscar, Dolce and Jacobs oh my." She said walking over to the woman. "Please tell me where you found Dolce Mary Janes." Though pale pink wasn't her color the shoes were gorgeous.

Andrew was frazzled VERY frazzled. So frazzled that he started to speed up. Before he realized it he had tripped on himself. Falling outside of Jezabel's shop he dropped all of his books and papers. Andrew struggled to get up. Why does this happen? The third time Andrew has fallen.......Its starting to look like a pattern.

Andrew struggled very hard. Squirming and trying to get up. He might have broken his ankle. Andrew felt like screaming! He was truly helpless..... Looking into the ceiling Andrew lied there feeling ashamed

Regaining courage Andrew got up and left
