Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour Nothing is better on a hot summer day than an ice cream. Why not come along and try one of the wizarding variety after a long day of shopping?

Default Booths & Tables


Image Credit: Ameh

Who wants to walk around eating ice cream when you can sit inside a nice, comfortable, temperature-controlled building to do it? The tables scattered throughout the interior, with their matching soft blue leather chairs, can be moved together or apart depending upon the size of your party. The blue leather booths that line the wall, while traditionally sized for seating four, are capable of magically extending themselves a bit more to accommodate up to eight should you have a large group. Have a seat, enjoy your ice cream and friends, and while the surfaces in the shop are charmed to resist staining, please do make sure to clean up any messes you might make before they set in! A napkin dispenser can be found at every table, along with a small wooden stand bearing spare plastic spoons and a bunch of small, prepackaged wet-wipes to help clean up those sticky hands.

Obviously Juno wouldn't be having children just yet and there was no knowing what would happen with River because he wasn't exactly the settling down type; of course he might surprise them all. She herself hadn't seen herself with anyone, and look at her now living with Olly. "Good! Part of that might be me spoiling her with stuff." That was kind of teasing but also kind of true because she WOULD get Nova stuff at least somewhat and there WOULD be other people spoiling her even more, like her grandparents and other relatives probably. But Esme would be getting the girl loads of stuffed animals and toys too. [b]"Well, it will be just like horse therapy like the muggles do, but instead with unicorns and winged horses. I was just going to do unicorns initially, but then I remembered that they don't really trust men and that could be a huge issue. Winged horses were better for male clients because they didn't have any inborn distrust. "I could have opted to use normal horses, but magical ones are more fun and I've wanted a unicorn since I was little and my dad always said no." So all the horses they kept in France were the muggle kind but she was not complaining because she loved them.

Strawberry ice cream WAS timeless, but then so was most flavours. "It's so good. Is it your favourite? I don't know if I have one particular kind I like most." Well, Esme knew that any without chocolate were good, which kind of ruled out a lot of them but wasn't a big deal. "I think Nova will love coming here in the summer! And I can always serve you guys. Though of course my internship won't be running forever." Soon enough she would need to leave because she would be too old for this. It made her sad, but she understood. "Oh, I would love to go there again! You're still having a blast there, right? I am so jealous that you have a job there." And she wanted to hear all about the latest happenings at the zoo.
Hadleigh laughed softly. "Join the party. It seems everyone likes to spoil this little princess," she reached over giving Nova a little tickle on her belly making the baby girl giggle. Family and friends alike spoiled her daughter as did Frankie and herself. It was hard not to. "Oh, that sounds really nice." Unicorn and winged horse therapy. Definitely not something you heard on a daily basis. "Well now is the time to get all those things you've always wanted but were never allowed to have." Hady laughed. Isn't that what most teens and young adults did the moment they moved out of their parents home?

"It is. I've always been a fan of strawberry." There was just something about the flavor that she loved. It wasn't to bland and it wasn't over the top in sweetness. "That sounds great. By then she'll be old enough to have a bit of it without it being to much for her to handle." No parent wanted to make their child sick with sweets. "You should come than one day, Nova loves it there. I love it there, still learning quite a lot." It was a bit like volunteering at the rescue reserve only these creatures wouldn't be leaving.

"What a lucky little girl." Esme grinned as she watched Hady tickle Nova's belly. That was the most adorable thing ever. "Auntie Esme was spoiled too, but of course I don't go over indulgent." Well, beyond when it came to things like her horse of course. Really possessions weren't the most important thing to her and that was something that she had in common with Oliver which was one of the reasons why they were perfect for each other. "Of course and you know you can always come down whenever you want to. Same for Nova and Frankie, of course." They could always see the horses and Nova would be older by then. "Same for you! You'll be done with school soon enough and I'm sure that there are loads of other things that you will get accomplished. I can't wait to see where my life is heading." Unlike some people, the future always made her excited as opposed to scared. Moving forward was her thing and being stuck in the present or dwelling on the past just wasn't her thing; that was part of why history was one of her least favourite subjects. Thank Merlin she didn't have to take that class anymore even if the professor was really nice.

"Fruit is pretty awesome. Way better than vegetables. I think that's why there are no vegetable ice creams as far as I know. Those would be pretty nasty." Like carrots. Esme didn't mind them in general, but carrot ice cream would be disgusting. "Oh, yes. Then she can have some strawberry ice cream like her mama. Unless of course she ends up not liking strawberries or something." Nova could have any flavour that she wanted. "wht's her favourite creature to see at the zoo?" For her it was really hard to decide. "I'll definitely come and you can always teach me more things when you learn them if you want to." Because those were the kinds of lessons that she never minded learning. Creatures were very fascinating and she loved them - well, the ones that weren't deadly or boring.

Because those were the kinds of lessons that she never minded learning. Creatures were very fascinating and she loved them - well, the ones that weren't deadly or boring.
"A very lucky, wonderful little girl." Hady couldn't help it. Nova was perfect. From the blondish-brown hair on the top of her little head way down to her tiny baby toes. No one could ever tell Hady any different. "As was I. Being an only child until I was sixteen made that easy but now I have this little one to spoil and my dad has five others at home he can spoil." She didn't know how the man did it, all those little ones. "You here that, Nova? Auntie Esme says we can visit her and the horses anytime once she gets her career started." Smiling she looked across the table at her friend. "Once I finish Uni I plan on traveling a bit to get even more knowledge about different creatures before I truly start on my career in being a Creature Healer." That was the plan anyway.

"I'm not sure there is a vegetable ice cream but who knows really." There was more flavors out there than she could ever name. "We'll just have to see. She can taste them all over time and choose that way if she likes." One or two flavors each visit until she found her favorite. "She likes most of them. The nifflers, unicorns and bowtruckles. Some of the larger ones scare her a little right now." Most likely because they were so big and she so small. "Of course. I'll teach you whatever I know about them." That was what she loved about her job at Scamanders, getting to teach others about the creatures.

That was what she loved about her job at Scamanders, getting to teach others about the creatures.
It made Esme happy to see how good Hady was with her daughter. Some mothers weren't the most maternal, or didn't form fast bonds with their children - or so she had heard - but her friend had been great at it right off the bat. Maybe not PERFECT as she was a young first-time parent, but amazing just the same. "That's right. I almost forgot that you were older when you first had siblings. A huge change, but a wonderful one." She knew that her friend loved her siblings - as it should be. Even River was loved even though he could be a massive pain to both her and Juno. "That's right," she added as she gave Nova a little bop on her nose. "Make sure to hold your parents to that one." Jokes because that wouldn't be an issue AT ALL. "Traveling sounds awesome. I love doing that? Where do you plan to go? Africa?" Since there were a lot of different creatures there.

Esme made a face. "Well, I'm not going to look into it." Haha. She'd stick to the normal kinds and that was more than enough for her. "That's true! My mom told me once that you always have to introduce foods slowly and a few at a time, so I'll definitely keep that in mind." So Hady wouldn't have to worry about that at any point when it came to stuff like ice cream. As her friend continued talking, she enjoyed her ice cream. "I'm just like Nova where that is concerned, so I completely get it! Big creatures are the worst; like Acromantulas and Basilisks." She gave a shiver, and it wasn't due to the ice cream she was eating. "Awesome! Now that's the kind of learning that I like because it's at least interesting." Creatures were the best.

Having been an only child until her mid-teens it had been an adjustment when her father re-married and the twins were born. She had taken to them like a mother hen and her baby chicks and the same happened when the triplets had been born but those were her siblings. Her love for them was strong but the love she held for her daughter was like no other. "That I'll agree to now. In the beginning I wasn't incredibly happy but that didn't last long. They're adorable kids and they love when Nova visits." Hadleigh laughed. "I will. Don't worry." Nova was going to have a lot of 'family' members that had careers that involved creatures. "I'm not entirely sure but Africa does sound like a good idea."

This Hady could nod to in agreement. "Mhmm. We'll be working through the vegetables first as most babies tend not to like those." She smiled enjoying another spoonful of her ice cream. There was a slight cringe from her at the mention of Acromantula. "Those just are wrong... after the encounter with them several years back I would be thrilled to never see another one for as long as I live."

Isley moved around to each booth and table, cleaning them as thoroughly as possible. It was a new day, but a new summer day, which meant everything needed to be sparkling before the rush of young Witches and Wizards bombarded her little shop.

She knew it would be a long day, but she was excited nonetheless. Isley moved to a booth in the very back of the shop, scrubbing it like a muggle. But this smear of gooey something didn't want to come up. She sighed, and with a quick flick of her wand, the mess was gone. Grinning, she looked around the little shop. It was as dazzling as any gemstone!

Now, to stock the toppings bar!

Just after entering the doors, Emmalyn took a long deep breath. The sugary sweet wonderfulness filled her lungs and a smile grew across her face. With a nod of delight, she slowly walked passed the ice cream and baked goods displays and headed for an empty booth. Choosing a treat was far too important to be done with haste. It was her very first time in a magical ice cream parlor and she didn't take new experiences lightly.

After settling into her booth, she reached into her bag and pulled out her journal to record the moment. She knew she would have to write home about everything that happened, from the smells and colors, to the unique flavor options. "Mom will never believe such flavors if I told her. Well, at least she wouldn't have before I received my letter from Hogwarts" she mumbled under her breath.

Oh wow! Elliott took a deep breath as she walked through the doors into the ice cream parlor. Now there was a smell she just couldn't get enough of. She'd been in several ice cream parlors in her life, many of them seaside ice cream parlors. But never had she been in one such as this one. The countless flavors and decadent bakes goods filled her nostrils as she stepped further into the parlor.

But choosing was going to prove to be a little more difficult than she had first anticipated. Here, there were more flavors than she could even have imagined. How on earth was she supposed to pick just one? Or maybe should wouldn't have to, maybe should be able to mix them.

She continued forward, her eyes focused on the counter toward the front of the shop. Her eyes fixated, her foot caught in the booth just beside her. Her hand fell on the back of the seat occupied by a girl writing. But that wasn't enough to stop her from falling to the floor. With a bang and a crash, she fell to the ground, her shoulder colliding with the booth on the way down.

"Ouch!" she cried, tears beginning to well in her brown eyes.

Deep in thought as she wrote, Emmalyn didn't notice the girl moving closer to her booth. Only the thump followed by a bang and crash tore her eyes away from her journal. "Oh goodness, are you alright?" Emmalyn asked as she fumbled her way out of the booth, careful to not step on the fallen girl. She reached out her hand to help the girl up off the, most likely sticky, floor. "Please, let me give you a hand."
She wished she would have taken the tissues from her mom earlier that morning. The same pack that her mother always insisted she carry in her bag, just in case.

With trepidation, Elliott moved her arms and placed her hands firmly on the ground underneath her. Taking a deep breath for encouragement, she began to raise herself from the ground. Noticing the writers' hand, she placed one of hers into the girl's and pushed herself up more. "I think I'm okay, thank you" she replied once she was upright. Perhaps not on two feet, but at least she wasn't a bundled up mess on the ground. She brushed herself down and looked at the girl, her eyes damp but thankfully not wet. Though her crying was most certainly noticeable. "Thank you for you help" She steadied herself and stood up properly before checking herself over. Or rather, what she could see of herself to check.

Not sure if she should get an adult or simply give the girl a moment to recover, Emmalyn did the only other thing she could think of. "Why don't you sit here with me and I'll grab you a glass of water. Oh, I'm Emmalyn." She quickly rushed off to the counter to grab some water, hoping the girl would sit so she wouldn't worry about her falling again.

Glancing from side to side as to not knock anyone over, Emmalyn hurried back to the booth with cup of cold water.

She quickly rushed off to the counter to grab some water, hoping the girl would sit so she wouldn't worry about her falling again.

Glancing from side to side as to not knock anyone over, Emmalyn hurried back to the booth with cup of cold water.
One hand on the table to steady herself, the other gently rubbing her forehead, Ellie moved closer to the booth. She didn't know how she looked, but she sure did feel like an absolute plonker. If only she'd actually looked where on earth she was going. Clumsy wasn't a strong enough word for her. With a soft nod, she sat herself in the seat opposite where the other girl had been sitting. "I'm Elliott. It's nice to meet you, under the circumstances" she replied, perhaps a little more sheepishly than was intended.

She glanced behind her as Emmalyn headed toward the counter. She took this as an opportunity to check for any obvious injuries. At the moment, her body felt bruised all over, it was difficult to tell what was hurt and what wasn't. Although she was positive the shock of it was a big part of the pain. Her brain had a thing for making things worse than they actually were.

A few minutes later, Emmalyn returned to the booth, water in hand. Ellie smiled at her gratefully and took the glass from her. "Thank you" she said. Taking a sip, she leant back slightly and rubbed her eyes. Sighing, she looked down at the floor where she had been a fumbling lump. "Trust me to trip over, at least I know why I'm called the clumsy one" she laughed. She had to laugh about it, otherwise she would just break down. And that just could not happen.

"It's a pleasure to meet you, Elliott." Emmalyn sat down and carefully began putting her things away. "Don't worry one bit about tripping. I do it all the time." she giggled a bit as she said it. Normal walking around seemed to go okay for her, but she knew if she got any where near a sports field, bad things were sure to happen. Things like smashing your head into the ground and getting a concussion. Which made her think of Elliott's head. "Are you sure you are okay? I can find some help if you need it."
Not really waiting for Elliott to answer, Emmlyn quickly added "Would you like to join me for some ice cream?" She wasn't sure if Elliott was in the mood, but she knew that ice cream always made her feel better.

Emmalyn glanced around and wondered if Elliott was alone like she was. Her parents hadn't been able to join her that day. The whole 'My daughters a witch' thing seemed to be a bit too much for her dad. Her mom, on the other hand, was very excited, but needed to stay home and support her dad.

"Is this going to be your first year at Hogwarts too?" She was hopeful that Elliott was a new student as well. At least then she would know one person. "I've just about finished all of my shopping for first year supplies. I just need to decide if I will take a pet or not." Emmalyn smiled as she spoke and as each moment passed, she started to feel more and more excited about the coming year.

Today Flynn was spending time with his Aunt Aina. She was fun to spend time with because Aunt Aina could ALWAYS be relied on to get him ice cream, which his mum never did and even if sometimes his dad did, sometimes his dad wouldn't because he got in trouble from mum for it.

He was sitting in one of the booths with his ice cream cone in his hand (and ice cream dripping down his hand), feet swinging. There were SO MANY sprinkles on his ice cream. Flynn was very pleased with how GOOD it looked, and even more pleased that there would be sprinkles in his tummy too.

And maybe sprinkles in his poops?

The almost-seven year old giggled and licked his ice cream. Aunt Aina had left him sitting here in the booth, needing to go run boring errands.

Ice cream with sprinkles was WAY better than errands.

SHE HAD ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY ICE-CREAM!!!

Needless to say this was cause for celebration. It wasn't easy picking pockets and sometimes if you did you wrong you'd get a smack to the back of your head or threats to call your parents (as if they ever knew who they were....or would want to know). But finally, she had enough. Some of it came from loose coins on the floor which helped majorly if she was being honest. So far her pickpocket game was only so strong.

Noah got herself a double scoop, knowing she would have to eat it all before she went back to the alley just in case. One scoop was fine but her Mummy would never in a bajillion YEARS let her have two. That was "too much sugar" as she called it. No such thing. No such thing. No such thing.

The six year old took her ice-cream, getting up on tip toes to effectively slide her coins across the counter before turning to find a seat.

You'd never be able to tell by the way she dressed that she spent her days down in a dingy place like Knockturn Alley. Noah was well groomed and wore fine clothing. Only her unusually pale complexion gave testament to how little she really got out into the light--but it was BORING down there without friends and she'd recently taken to running away as often as she could to find new ones--LIKE THAT BOY!

"Hi!" Noah climbed into the seat opposite his at the table. "I'm Noah. D'you wanna be my friend?"

"Hi!" Noah climbed into the seat opposite his at the table. "I'm Noah. D'you wanna be my friend?"

Flynn was still gleefully contemplating his sprinkles when all of a sudden there was someone sitting across from him. Not even a big someone, but a small someone like him. A kid someone.

A kid someone with a boy's name.

So that was the first thing Flynn said.

"You have a boy's name." Did she know? Because it was. Also he had friends already. A BEST friend even. A very special VERY BEST friend. So he didn't NEED more unless they were good at stuff. "I don't know if I want to be your friend yet." He said reasonably, and licked at his sprinkle-inflicted cone.

So Noah had to present her CASE basically. "Why should I want you to be MY friend?" He asked, with wide eyed sincerity.

If her legs weren't so short, she'd have kicked him under the table for saying she had a boy name, because she WASN'T a boy and it was HER name. She was a girl, so OBVIOUSLY THAT MADE IT A GIRL NAME BY DEFAULT. Understanding the futility of such an action, Noah refrained from an attempt.

Instead she would gape widely at him for his silly question because didn't EVERYONE wanna be her friend? She was like the greatest person who ever lived in the whole entire existence of the world and anyone ever named "Noah".

"BeeEEEcCCAAaaAUuUUUssSSSsSEeeEee," She said started, rather dramatically. There was a hint of disbelief that he would even have to ask. "I have really super cool toys and my own jungle gym and playroom AND I know the COOLEST PLACES that regular kids aren't allowed to go to but I can because nothing bad'll happen to me--and nothing bad'll happen to my friends either so you gotta be my friend too so when we play in that special place you'll be fine." DUH.

"I can show you if you want."

Lick. Lick. Lick.

Flynn was interested and attentive but not very impressed. He had lots of cool things, and so did the best friend in the universe, Octavia Stark. And going places that aren't safe did not sound like fun to Flynn. Bad things would happen if he wasn't friends? Flynn licked his ice cream and studied Noah with a tongue full of sprinkles.

"My mum says that the importantest bit about choosing friends is what they are like as people. What are you like as a people, Noah?“ He asked, eyes earnest and huge.

That was way more important than jungle gyms and playrooms.
