Default Trafalgar Square


Exiting the subway station for Charing Cross instantly takes you to Trafalgar Square, which is at the south of Charing Cross Road and extends to a number of other streets. The square has been a significant landmark since the 13th century. The bulk of the square is taken up by Nelson's Column, surrounded by four bronze lion statues, and two large fountains featuring dolphins, mermaids, and tritons. In the corners of the square are four plinths, one of which is swapped out for another from time to time, and up a flight of stairs is the National Gallery.

A number of Muggle ceremonies are hosted here during major holidays, such as a seasonal tree ceremony prior to Christmas and a New Years celebration. The space is also occasionally used for political demonstrations, premieres, parade destinations, and more. This area is still primarily used today as a public gathering spot. With that being said, wizards and witches that find themselves here will know better than to whip their wands out.

Heading directly south of the square on Whitehall Road, the Ministry entrances can be accessed.

Was that a coffee in his hand? Yes, yes it was. Kalen had been pulling double shifts at Saint Mungo's where he had been sent to help out with the injuries from the war. He was tired, it was long work and it only served to prove that he was not cut out for working an ER. Or an hospital for that matter. Nope...he had certainly picked the correct path in being a sports medi-wizard. He took a sip from the coffee, made a face that might have scared a bird nearby, and then tilted his head up to the sky. He was only drinking the coffee in an attempt to give him enough energy to make it back to his flat.

And then his stomach growled. Loudly. He followed that up with a groan. When was the last time he had eaten? He couldn't remember. He should probably find something to eat. Maybe there was a bagel place nearby? Or a donut? Better yet, a muffin. --- Oh lord, was he starting to channel his mother?

Trafalgar Square was always one of those places where Brody could count on to be lively. There were always so many Muggles bustling about. There were always so many cute guys and girls about. On a few occasions, he was known to flirt with one or two who had struck up a conversation with him. Today, he was sitting at one one the fountains, his back full to the water, taking in some sunshine and well, just enjoying life as best as he could.

His wand was safely tucked away, yes. The young man was sitting with his right ankle resting on his left knee. Even though he wasn’t that huge fan of music, his ankle was jingling in time with a catchy Muggle tune he had recently heard. Brody wasn’t looking at anyone in particular when his gaze settled on Mr. Flustered Visa Guy.

“Hey, you! Got visa issues again?”

Who me?! The question was clear on his face when he turned towards the voice yelling at at him. Surely his stomach hadn't been that loud. He rubbed his belly though anyways, hoping to calm it down just in case...

And then his eyes landed on the the dude from DIMC. "Oh - Hey!" he said, a little shyly (especially for him). "No...yes... not really sure?" He scratched a cheek as he thought. Then his stomach let out another loud growl. "Um...right...sorry haven't eaten in ages." His face contorted into an embarrassed grimace. "Brady - right?" he asked walking towards him. "I'm not really sure what's going on since I was sorta tapped to help at St. Mungo's because of the battles and all." He decided to sit down next to the bloke, even though the wasn't invited. He leaned back, face to the sky, soaking up the sun a little. "Were you involved in the battles?" he asked. Wait - was it wrong to ask that? Eh, too late if it was.

Oh yeah.

Kalen definitely heard him. And yes, Brody was talking to you, mister. Though he did wonder why Kalen was rubbing his belly like a pregnant woman. The Coordinator was judging, oh yes he was, but was careful to keep his face neutral.

Since Brody wasn’t that familiar with Kalen, the shyness slipped by completely unnoticed. A questioning look was now present on his face, however. “Well, you ought to check in with the Department. Don’t want any legal issues, do you?’’ And Kalen ought to grab himself something to eat. Brody shrugged. “It’s alright. Some days are just too busy to eat.”

The twenty year old scanned a random group of Muggles moving along and chattering loudly. No, there wasn’t anyone he was looking for. People - watching was just fun, you know? By the time his attention was back on Kalen, the other fellow had closed some distance between them…. and taking a seat next to him. “It’s Brody,’’ was his reply, plus at the same time realising that he didn’t mind the company. Actually… Kalen was rather good looking. Not Gabriel-good-looking but close enough. These days, Gabriel crossed his mind a lot. “Stayed at the Ministry to help with the evacuation,’’ the young man replied shortly as he didn’t really want to talk of all the depressing things that he had seen recently. Instead, he studied Kalen’s facial features a bit. “You’re still busy then…?” There was uncertainty in his voice because he suspected that there was still a bit of persons who needed healing but then again, Brody was not too familiar with healing procedures.

"Right, sorry - Brody..." He had only met the guy once and well, they hadn't exactly exchanged names and numbers now had they? "Brody." He repeated the man's name as if to try and commit it to memory. Which was what he was, indeed, doing. It was a trick his mom had taught him. Which reminded him. He should really send them an owl or floo them or - something. Let them know he was fine. Although they really didn't have a reason to worry since, well he didn't attend Hogwarts or work IN the ministry. "I'll stop by the office again when I have the time. Exams are coming up and studying..." His grades were more important at this moment then anything else. Well, besides maybe Anna.

"Evacuation? Oh with the fire? Well, I'm glad you didn't get burned. Saw some nasty ones. Firestorm spell..." he shook his head. When he opened his eyes again he found Brody was watching him. He didn't think anything of it. After all he had invited himself to sit down and then promptly decided to close his eyes and stare up at the sky. "The hospital has had to deal with lot of hexes and charms and other injuries from the battle and other things. Emergency healing isn't really my area so it's been taxing." He gave Brody a big smile. "I'll take a rouge bludger or a broom accident over getting horns off someone's head any day."

He let his eyes roam around the square for a bit. And yes, maybe he was also trying to see if there were any food carts around. "What brings you out here? Meeting someone? Killing time before you go into work?" Was he being nosey? Maybe. Mostly he was just trying to be friendly.

Good.

They were off to a good start with Kalen seemingly repeating his name to memorise it. Brody on the other hand, was quite good with names. Anyone could just tell him their name and he’d remember their name and face. Most of the time, anyway. He jiggled his crossed ankle to no particular rhythm and bobbed his head once, twice, thrice. “Sounds like a good plan.” Oh, exams. Yes. Brody can relate. “Good luck with those. It seems off having exams after all the chaos we were in.”

Indeed it had been scary, that Firestorm Spell. Brody hadn’t actually been there in the Tech Lounge when that bit of action had been taking place but he had heard recounts of the matter. And about Goldwasser the vampire. The guy continued studying Kalen. In his opinion, Kalen looked as though he was coping well. Of course, looks could be deceiving. Still, he laughed. “You sound like my uncle. He’d rather take any bludger injury over dealing with certain things.”

Brody shrugged. “I’m people-watching,’’ he replied simply. “And relaxing, I guess.”

Brody shrugged. “I’m people-watching,’’ he replied simply. “And relaxing, I guess.”

For some reason, Kalen got the impression from Brody’s comment about exams that he too, was in university. He didn’t know why he got that impression though and so he didn’t ask. Especially since Brody’s jiggling foot gave Kalen the impression the man was either agitated or nervous. He was used to making people agitated, but not nervous and so he assumed he was just being his usual annoying self. ”It does. But life goes on. I’ve only got a few semesters left and then hopefully the quidditch leagues will be looking for healers.” If not, he’d likely spend a few more years as a giant dancing turkey Falcon. He’d gotten good at wearing the mascot costume, but it certainly wasn’t something he wanted to do for the rest of his life.

”People watching?” He looked from Brody’s face out across the square. ”Hmm… never done that. What exactly do you do – just sit here and observe people?” Why on Earth would someone find that exciting? He didn’t see the appeal. ”What exactly do you get out of doing that?” he asked. Always the scholar Kalen was. Surely there was a something Brody got out of the activity or else he wouldn’t do it.

Merlin's beard, walking was so exhausting these days. This shouldn't have been something that surprised her given how she hardly moved anymore and kept herself pretty much shut in at home, yet here she was... still surprised that her breathing was already irregular just from a jaunt from home. Spotting a seating area that didn't look too occupied, other than a couple of gents sitting and chatting, Naia made her way over and gingerly set down nearish to them, but also trying to leave some distance so she didn't appear to be attempting to eavesdrop.

She smoothed her black dress over her, bunching it up a little over her abdomen as she was prone to do these days, before reaching for her purse for the snacks her sister was keeping her well stocked on. She had very little appetite still since the war, but she was trying.

Opening a granola bar, Nai paused hearing an almost familiar sounding voice and turned to examine more closely the two chatting. And blinked when she recognized one face. "Kalen??" She didn't move, in case her ears was wrong and it was not her study buddy. She did paste a polite smile though in case either, or both, looked over.

Merlin, either way still though she was rude for interrupting.

Yes, Kalen would be correct. Brody indeed was in university and on occasions felt as though he were slowly being crushed by the weight of studies and work. But he was no quitter and his ambitions were always kept front and center in his mind. In other words, he always kept his eyes on the prize. As for being agitated or nervous? Brody was neither. Nothing to see here but a calm, cool and collected young man. The only thing that would make him cooler was if he were wearing a pair of sunglasses. Come to think of it, he really ought to invest in one.

“If you’re any good at Healing, I’m pretty sure that your skills will be noticed by team management. If not, you can always apply at Mungo’s. I bet you don’t want to be a dancing chicken until you die.’’ No, Brody wasn’t poking fun at Kalen’s current job. Everyone had to start somewhere, right? Brody followed Kalen’s gaze out to the general crowd moving along. He shrugged thoughtfully. “Well, you observe people’s habits. I mean, sooner or later you see patterns emerging.” Brody did not mention that he didn’t really like 99.9% of humans that he met. He tolerated them, yes, but that was about it. “It’s also relaxing and distracting. You should try it sometime.”

But who was that interrupting them?

Brody turned his head, spotted the woman in the black dressed then turned his attention back to the crowd. He didn’t know who she was nor did he really care. Had she been asking him for help at DIMC, it would have been a completely different situation.

"Well, that's the problem isn't it?" he asked his American accent sounding a bit boorish next to Brody's posh one. "Everyone thinks they're they best things since a Thunderbolt 2000, but often you find out you're just a toy broom that only floats 2 feet off the ground." He wasn't sure his analogy worked, but eh, it was all he had. "I think I'm good. I wouldn't put the hours into study and practicing if I didn't, but who knows what someone else will think of me. And saying don't worry what other think only works when it's not your livelihood and your dreams at stake." He was whining and babbling and he knew it. It wasn't fare to Brody. After all, they had only met once before this and now here Kalen was, unloading on him. "Sorry. It's just been... everything seems so... stress." He finally landed on with a sheepish shrug. "At least I know I'm good working as a dancing chicken." Even if it was humiliating and a little degrading at times.

He looked back out over the square while he listened to Brody talk about people watching. "Relaxing? Well, I could use some of that right now..." So he clammed up and did as he was directed by Brody. He watched. Until someone called his name. He turned his head and caught sight of Nai and she had food. His stomach let out a loud jealous grumble. He groaned and rubbed it. "Hey Nai!" he said raising a hand in greeting. He hadn't seen her in a while, but he was pleased to see she was alright. And by alright, he meant whole. No antlers poking from her head. No missing fingers. No burns. No leeks in her ears. He couldn't say whether or not she had any unseen damage. "Come meet Brody." He waved her over, completely disregarding the fact that Brody might not want company. Because well, he himself had been possibly unwanted company.

The immediate disinterest from the first gentleman had her wondering not only if she was wrong, but also if it wouldn't have been more polite to have not noticed anyways. She was interrupting, which was generally rude, and also if it wasn't even her friend well then she'd just be minorly embarrassed as well.

Though, in reality embarrassment was an emotion that was not new to her and she had gotten fairly good at being able to handle. So she waved the concerns from her oddly self conscious mind.

Besides, the other gentleman looked over and it WAS Kalen which brought a smile to the young woman's face. She'd missed a couple of the last weeks of uni classes, thankfully something she'd been able to make up due to circumstances. so it felt like it'd been forever since she'd even seen him. Hearing the invitation to come over, she nodded before moving towards a seat a bit closer to them and smiling in greeting. "Hi Kalen, it's good to see you! Sorry to interrupt you and your friend." And because she carried snacks for days now she pulled out a couple extra granola bars. "I was just sitting for a quick snack. Anyone else want one?"

Default Apologies for Brody ^_^
~ Mrs Steve Harrington ~ Friendly Neighbourhood Hufflepuff ~

Brody’s unwavering gaze sized Kalen up. He knew he was staring and knew that it sometimes made others uncomfortable but he never cared. This time was no different. The analogy worked, yes, but that wasn’t the reason for his sizing up. “I don’t know about you but I’d never underestimate me. You could probably do with changing your way of thinking a bit.’’ Just a little FYI. “I wasn’t going to say that,’’ Brody continued breezily and casually. It was not his job to put the fear of others at ease, and he usually chose whom and when to do that with. He did wonder if Kalen thought that he had no dreams of his own but Brody decided not to voice his thoughts. There was pity in his eyes, pity for Kalen. It was clear that the stress was getting to the other young man and he was about to snap. Not everyone could be cool and calm under pressure like Brody. “No problem.”

So much for the people-watching technique working for Kalen. Brody turned his head, taking a quick look at the newcomer. No, Brody did not want to meet anyone. Nothing personal to anyone but Brody was moody when it came to being in the company of unfamiliar faces. He gave the woman a brief, piercing stare. "No, thanks. I’m good.”

Would the two like to be alone?

Kalen returned Brody's stare with big brown eyes. He appreciated the candor and advise, only he had nothing to say in response so he shrugged and looked back out over the square. He fell into watchin a pigeon pecking the ground for something. "Sometimes it's just hard," he finally said after a moment. "And with everything I've seen in the last month or so, well, it just went to show me that nothing in life in certain no matter how hard you work for it or how much you plan or what you think of yourself." War did that you know. Shook people's confidence, broke dreams, shattered plans...

Like usual, Kalen was completely unware of Brody's disinterest in being social. It wasn't anything personal, just cues like that weren't always something he got. Nai had been around him long enough to know that sometimes he just didn't pick up on all the social cues in the room. It was why it had taken him a long long time to realize his girlfriend was jealous upset about him spending time with another girl. "Have you ever known me to turn down food?" he asked holding out a hand as his stomach gave yet another loud and embarrassing grumble. "Sorry," he muttered as he made quick work of unwrapping the granola bar Nai handed over. It was gone in three chomps and his stomach seemed to be a little less angry with him. Maybe he would stop for a big English breakfast (sans the tomatoes, who ate tomatoes with breakfast?!) on the way back to his flat. "Brody, this is Nai, my study buddy. She's studying healing magic at University too." He said remembering his mother's many lessons on polite introductions. "Brody is - well...he works in International Magical Cooperation. He was kind enough to help me with a VISA issue the other day." He flashed a big smile in Brody's direction. "He was attempting to teach me the subtle art of people-watching, but I apparently am a poor student."

The piercing stare did make her a little uncomfortable and Naia nearly squirmed under it, feeling almost like she was back in school and in a classroom with a Professor. Why her brain went to that particular moment, she had no idea. Probably just the last time she remembered feeling like she did want to squirm and kind of... fade away under someone's gaze.

But she was being ridiculous. Perhaps he just had an intense look.

She turned her attention back to Kalen, who was usually upbeat and bubbly and that was much more in her comfort zone. With the first gentleman, Brody, having turned down the offer of snack, Naia gave both bars to Kalen laughing at his response. "Not at all. I think when I usually see you there is some type of food involved." When they met, study sessions, and wasn't he holding a carrot when she saw him at the Winged Horse Festival? Perhaps she was just thinking of Cicero. "No apology needed. Just a stomach growl." Everyone's tummy did it.

And then introductions, and Naia turned her attention back to the other. She did not offer her hand in hello, having picked up from previous cues that might not be welcome. "Nice to meet you, Brody. VISA issue, huh? Do you like your position in the ministry? I bet you get to meet a lot of interesting people." Wouldn't he be like one of the first stops for travel or relocation? She might even need to send her sister his way now that she was of age and had been officially born in the States, not London like the twins. "And what is the subtle art of people-watching?"

It was probably silence. Which meant she would also be rubbish at it.

Oh no no no no no.

Kalen better not be getting all sentimental in any form here. While not adverse to anyone laying their feelings on him, it did make Brody uncomfortable to an extent. He could, however, agree with the words spoken: war did put things into perspective; it did alter plans. The best that anyone could do was to take their time in trying to rebuild. Why did wars have to exist, anyway?

Brody stared at Kalen unabashedly for about five seconds. That dude could certainly put food away, he observed. No, no. Brody wasn’t judging. Food was essential. Ah, here came the inevitable introductions. Brody was silently grateful there would be no handshaking. Yes, he did shake hands but Nai had just caught him at a time when his socialisation level was very low.

“Nice to meet you as well, Nai.’’ Then came all the questions. Woah. This one’s a talker. “Yes. Kalen was lucky he didn’t get shipped out of the country.” Here, Brody threw Kalen a look. There wasn’t anything special to that look; just a regular, calm one. “I do like my job. It’s not where I aim to be in a few years but I’m surviving. Depends on who you consider interesting. Foreign diplomats? International quidditch players?’’ A lazy grin crossed his face. “If so, then yes, they’re all rather interesting. As for people watching, it’s just sitting here observing behavioural patterns of others.’’ Sounds boring? It wasn’t but to each his own. Also, he had a question of his own. “Is Kalen a bad student at university as he is at people watching?’’ Sorry, Kalen.
