Default The Toppings Bar


Image Credit: Ameh

Equally as important as the ice cream flavour one chooses is the toppings that one puts upon it. A good topping or two can make or break a personal sundae, so once you've picked your poison flavour, the toppings bar is the next logical stop on the road to ice cream nirvana! The setup is rather impressive and can seem intimidating at first, but don't fret. This magical machine is easy enough to operate, given a moment and some patience.

A series of medium-sized glass tubes containing any topping one could dream of (and some nobody would dare to) hover precariously over a long, shiny tray that is inset into the countertop. At any given time this tray can be found with any myriad of missed toppings mixed together inside of it; the more adventurous customers sometimes choose to pick up the small scooper that can be found at its edge & scoop their toppings from those that did not land on someone else's ice cream. If you'd prefer to make your own choices, however, merely say your decided-upon topping or toppings to the machine, and it will release a small amount of it into the corkscrew spun glass chutes. Watch carefully and make sure to position your ice cream in the right place, because all of the chutes merge together into one to drop your tasting ice cream additives onto your bowl or cone!

The machine is magical and will clear itself of any topping residue between customers, so you needn't worry about getting sticky caramel sauce or the lingered tastes of meat chunks if the person before you made some decisions you don't agree with. However, if you should find that help is necessary, another tap bell can be found at the end of the counter to summon the shopkeeper or assistant.

Gabby knew that Archer was busy working in the greenhouse at the moment so she had decided to head over to Floreans by herself and get some ice cream. Who cared that it technically wasn't break yet? She had gotten a lot of work done already and Lynley knew that she had cravings. She was going to stop and get something to eat when she felt like it and right now she was dying for some chocolate ice cream.

Huge cone in hand, she headed over to the toppings bar. Chocolate ice cream was delicious but it would be even BETTER with some pickles on it. That was what she had been wanting lately and even if her husband thought it was odd he still went out and got some for her because he was wonderful and would do anything she asked of him. She loved Archer so much.

"Pickles," she said clearly to the machine as she held her cone where she needed to. It better give her the amount she wanted or Gabby was going to complain the the manager.

Lynley knew she would find Gabby here. She needed to talk to the woman, outside of work, where she could forgo having to be uptight and professional all the time. She had seen Gabby leave....early, mind you, for her break.

That had irked Lynley quite a bit.

But yes, here she was at the ice cream shop, getting Merlin knew what because pregnant women were weird as heck. "Gabby." Lynley approached Gabby from behind and stopped next to her. "I think we need to talk," she said softly, not letting her gaze drift away from Gabby's figure.

Aaaah, that was much better.

Gabby took one of the pickles off of the top of her cone, and after making sure that it was covered in chocolate ice cream, popped it into her mouth. Now she could go back to work and complete her paperwork without having food on her mind. At least until lunch.

Hearing a voice, she froze. Gabby did not want to talk to Lynley because she was angry and hurt after their last conversation. Archer was angry too and told her that he didn't think she should be around Lynley much if possible. He was right about that. She didn't want to converse with her; there was the all too real possibility of saying or doing something that she would later regret because despite it all she still cared about her friend. "I'm heading back to work," she said simply as she started making her way towards the exit.

And yes, she had noticed Lynley staring at her figure. Now it was more than obvious that she was pregnant. Everyone noticed, even strangers.

Lynley raised an eyebrow at her. "You left work early for break. Without my permission. The least you can do is give me your time, Gabby," she said softly. "I'll even buy you another ice cream." Sigh. She just wanted to talk. "I just...think we need to talk. I can't work like this anymore."

It was becoming distracting, a nuisance, and....a dead weight in the pit of Lynley's stomach. All the time. She wasn't even sleeping well at night anymore. Could Gabby see the bags under her eyes? Ugh.

Sigh.

Gabby didn't WANT to talk right now. She wanted to get away before she ended up saying something she would regret or shoved her ice cream in Lynley's face. Maybe both. And she wasn't going to apologize for leaving either. She had gotten a lot of work done and scooting off ONCE for some ice cream wasn't exactly a crime. In her opinion she hadn't done anything wrong. More ice cream, however... THAT was tempting.

"All right," she said as she headed back over to her boss. Hopefully she wouldn't come to regret this decision. It wasn't easy for her either when someone who was supposed to be her friend was acting like she had done something wrong. The only reason this mattered so much was because she cared about Lynley.

Meh.

Gabby continued to eat her pickles and ice cream.

Lynley sighed and ran a hand through her hair. She didn't really want to talk either, not really, but it had to be done. So she needed to just grit her teeth, and get on it with already.

"I apologize for the way that I behaved towards your pregnancy. However, I do feel I had the right in feeling hurt about it...in my own way. Just...I should not have taken it out on you." She GUESSED. She was still weirded out that Gabby had gone from not wanting children to being EAGER for this one to pop out in the matter of, like, a week, but whatever. "I also think you and Archer are moving way too fast...but again, I can only say that as a friend, and if you're happy...I guess whatever."

Still disproved of it. Still didn't like Archer. But whatever. "Did...you get married?" she asked, raising an eyebrow and trying to see if there was a ring.

Yeeeeeah, this was awkward.

At least she was getting an apology. Something that she more than deserved after the way that Lynley had been treating her for the last while. For a moment Gabby considered shoving the apology - and the ice cream - in her boss' face... but she knew how hard this was for the other woman. To get an actual Lynley apology wasn't a common thing. "I forgive you and I suppose I can understand why you feel that way." MAYBE. It was weird, but Gabby wasn't anything if she wasn't understanding.

"I didn't think I wanted to have a baby until there was the possibility of it happening." Smiling, she rubbed her bump. The day might come where Lynley was in a position like this and everything would make sense then. That was if she ever settled down with someone which quite frankly didn't seem very likely judging by how things were currently. "I don't agree." But it was... whatever. Gabby wasn't going to stop someone from feeling a certain way even if she thought it was nonsense. They would end up fighting again and she wasn't up to fighting right now; she was trying to finish her ice cream. "Is that why you don't like him?" Yes, she had worked that out and it hadn't taken a while either.

Nod. "I did." She held up her ring.

This was awful. Lynley hated apologizing for anything, mostly because she was always right. She was right here, too, but she thought she could have been a TAD nicer to Gabby about it all. Maybe.

She was quiet for a bit, eyeing the ice cream bar...wondering if she wanted to get an ice cream. The toppings looked nice...had they changed this place up a bit? It looked...different than it had looked over the summer, which was the last time she'd been here. "Gabby, how do you eat ice cream in December?" she asked, legitimately curious, because it was very cold outside!

"Yes. I don't like him because he's entirely too old for you and rushing you into all of this---" she gestured at the ring and sighed. "I guess you didn't invite me." It was a shame. Lynley gave good presents for those kinds of things. Gabby's loss.

She refused to congratulate her.

Was that question for real? Gabby couldn't tell if Lynley was serious or not, but then decided that she probably WAS. "Pregnancy cravings." That was how. It was also how she could eat chocolate ice cream with pickles because she sure as heck wouldn't have been doing that if she wasn't pregnant. Her body was going through so many changes and this was one of the WEIRD ones. She was enjoying every moment, however. Well, besides the tiredness and yeah.

Eyebrow raise at the next comments. Was Lynley REALLY going there? Gabby was more tempted than ever to shove her ice cream in her friend's face but to do so meant giving up food. Instead she rolled her eyes. "Why do you think he's too old for me?" It wasn't as if he was cradle robbing her. And who cared if he was eight and a half years older? Pfft. Also she wasn't being 'rushed' into anything. "If you loved someone you would understand." Just saying. Gabby had no idea if Lynley HAD ever loved a guy before, but she was leaning more towards NO given her attitude towards relationships. Honestly she was having a hard time taking this seriously because of it. If Lynley didn't like Archer that was her loss because he was more than amazing.

And as far as the wedding went... "We didn't really invite anyone." Just did the witness thing and not bothered with the rest. It was wonderful. "We're having a party for New Years." ... Which she honestly didn't know about Lynley attending if she didn't like Archer.

It was just so cold, and Lynley found herself wanting to wrap Gabby up in another coat if she was going to eat ice cream right now. "Just make sure not to catch a cold, Gabby, especially right now..." didn't pregnancy make all sicknesses somewhat scary? For a moment, Lynley felt like her mother, fussing over Gabby like her mother would anyone in her life. Hmph.

IF she loved someone.

IF.

Lynley's face darkened. "I haven't been single my entire life, Gabby. I know what it's like to be blinded by love. Not to suggest you are--" but to absolutely suggest it, actually, "I just...it's all so fast. You two met what....a year ago?" And pregnant and MARRIED? Already? Not in the correct order, either, no. "But that's...all I'll say. Is that it worries me. If you're happy--whatever. Nothing I can do about it." But Gabby at least knew her concerns.

And she...did not trust Archer Burton. Not at all.

The hurt of not being invited to the wedding was apparent on Lynley's face, but she swallowed it back and sighed. "New Year's?" A party? What kind of party? One where people...went insane? "I guess I could stop by." What else did Lynley have to do other than go to her parents' house and converse with her brother's awful wife...who was also expecting a child. Everyone was expecting children, weren't they? Except for Lynley, who was merely expecting on adopting a KNEAZLE. Not good enough for Mama Purcell.

Snort.

Lynley was acting like her mother and Gabby couldn't help but find it funny despite the awkwardness of the whole situation. Naturally she wouldn't get a cold because she was above such things, but she'd still be careful for her daughter. "I'll keep myself warm. Especially after that second ice cream." Yes, she wasn't forgetting about THAT. She'd been told she'd get another one and it had better happen or there would be hell to pay.

Siiiiigh. This was way too much. "I appreciate the concern because it shows you care." Really, it was frustrating among other things, but it was reassuring to know that her friend still cared even if she was being illogical. Not to mention the fact that the judgement ticked her off because not only was it unnecessary, but it was unfair to Archer who hadn't even done anything. "If you've loved someone you should understand." No, she was not going to respond to that 'blinded' bit because none of that was going on. "It was a year ago at the end of August and I am very happy." The happiest she's ever been.

Gabby didn't fail to notice the hurt and it made her feel a little bad but really Lynley had shut her out so what had she expected? "Yes. Since we didn't really have anyone at the wedding we're throwing a party for it." So Lynley was in the same boat as everyone else. "You are definitely invited." That is if she could be civil towards Archer because Gabby was not having any drama at her party. If Lynley would only give him a chance she would see how wrong she was about him.

Speaking of the second ice cream, Lynley thought she might as well get one if she was buying Gabby one. Why waste the opportunity? "Well of course I care..." Lynley rolled her eyes slightly. "But I tend to get angry over things more than anbything else. So...for getting angry, I apologize." She would never apologize about the way she felt. Just as Lynley would never ask Gabby to say sorry for how SHE felt...nope.

A year. It was just...so quick. Maybe because Lynley was older, and being all...spur of the moment was weird to her. But Archer was even older than herself, so...it was just WEIRD to her. "I'm adopting a kneazle," she said gently, as if to breach the subject of the newest aspects of her life. "I'm pretty lonely at my apartment. So." You know. Kneazle it was.

Well..."If it's for the wedding, we should buy a wedding gift, yes?" She needed to know the proper protocol for this party. "Will we get official invitations? What's the dress code for the party?" she fired the questions at Gabby.

Could Gabby be blamed for questioning whether or not Lynley cared about her? Being shut out by your best friend was never easy. It especially wasn't when it was over something that made her so happy. This was the best her life had ever been and all she had wanted was for Lynley to be happy for her. Those words hadn't come, but maybe they would in time after the shock of everything had passed and the baby was here. "We're both like that," she said giving a small smile. Her ice cream was almost done by now and that other one had better be in the works.

A kneazle? So that was really happening? She hadn't been sure if Lynley was serious or not. Good for her if she felt that a pet would help her deal with things. Was there even any point in inviting her to come by the tent? Honestly Gabby was still hurt over their plans being cancelled after the pregnancy announcement had come. "Well, animals are good companions... I suppose." It had been a while since she had owned a pet and honestly it might not be a good idea to get another one seeing as they would be travelling again once Valeria was old enough. "Bump has a name now." In case Lynley wanted to know.

Nod. "If you want to." It would be appreciated but Gabby wasn't going to push it. Archer would be happy that they were making up. "Yes and nice clothes but nothing too over the top." It was a party, not a ball. If anyone tried showing up in sweat pants, however, they would be shown the door. "Will you give Archer a shot?"

Pffft. They were similar in SOME ways. LYNLEY would never want a child. Not ever. Not even if she found a man or someone she wanted to spend her life with. She knew..she knew she didn't want that life whatsoever.

"They are. I mean, I've had pets before. It's just...so sad when they pass. I vowed to myself once that I'd never have another pet...not after..." she sighed. "In University...I had a cat named Petey. And when he died...well. It was just too much. But..kneazles live longer than cats so...maybe I'll be okay." Maybe she's kick the bucket before then, too, but that was highly unlikely, wasn't it?

Bump.

Ewwwww.

Lynley looked down at her stomach for a SECOND before clearing her throat and looking back up. "Oh?" She almost took a step backward from the bump.

EWWWWWWWWW.

Would she give Archer a SHOT?

Lynley didn't answer right away. She lifted her right hand and examined her nails. Mint green today. Perfectly polished except for her damn pinky. There was a slight chip at the top of the nail...ugh. It would bother her. "I...don't like him. But I can civil if I must." Did that count as "giving him a shot?"

Was Lynley hoping that this kneazle would live forever or something? Because if so... yeah. She was in for a rude awakening. Chances were that even IF it lived for a long time, it would still die before Lynley herself did. Nothing wrong with that in Gabby's eyes, but she wasn't huge on pets anyway. "I had a bunny when I was younger. I named her Floppy." VERY original name and everything. "I loved her and was sad when she died. That's the only pet that I've ever had that wasn't an owl." Honestly owls were more of a delivery system than anything else. Whatever, because she was talking about her little princess. "Her name is Valeria." Wasn't it just the MOST beautiful name ever?

... Sweet Merlin.

Enough of this already.

"He hasn't even DONE anything to you, Lynley." This was more than ridiculous and Gabby was getting irritated again. Forget Archer being happy that things were less stressful for her because they were as stressful as ever. She wasn't even going to mention that her husband didn't really like Lynley either because well... he couldn't be blamed for that, could he? Not after all the crap that had been pulled first.

Floppy the bunny.

Yes, very original, Gabby. Lynley had to chuckle softly at it, though. It was such a childish name; very cute. "I feel like I should invest in an owl. I would be able to communicate better with fellow magical folks," she said, her eyes flittering to the ice cream menu once more. It was decided; she would get one. At some point.

Eventually.

"Valeria Burton. It has a nice ring to it..." ish. "I like Valeria." Not the Burton part. "It definitely seems like a name you'd have picked, yes, very Italian." Lynley wondered what Gabby's parents thought of this whole ordeal. Hmph. And of course the hE HASN'T DONE ANYTHING came up. Technically, no. Lynley just SIGHED. "Look, I just don;t like him. He's all high and mighty--thinks he's the best damn thing in the world, and acts like he's better than me--self righteous p--" she clenched her teeth shut and took a BREATH. "I just don't like his attitude. That's it, and I know he doesn't like mine, and that's FINE with me."

invest in an owl? Gabby supposed that was a good idea... "I haven't had an owl since Hogwarts though sometimes I suppose it would be a good idea. Especially since we travel a lot." Obviously they weren't right now because she was pregnant but yeah. This baby would be coming out eventually and they would be back to the nomadic lifestyle soon enough. But whatever because Lynley was looking at the ice cream menu. "I want chocolate with pickles." The one hadn't been enough and she was HUNGRY.

"We looked at an Italian name book and that was the one that we ended up choosing." Of course if Archer had his heart set on a non-Italian name Gabby would have considered it but as things were they were both really happy about Valeria. At the moment she wasn't happy, however. No, now she was FROWNING. "He is not high and mighty. He is very laid back. When has he acted like he was better than you? If it's what he told you after the announcement, he only said that because I was really upset." Typical Lynley to take something like that as a slight. Ugh. "He doesn't like how you've been treating me lately." If Lynley hadn't started ignoring her there wouldn't have been an issue in the first place.

"You're not traveling right now, right?" she asked sharply. "And do you know when you're supposed to stop all apparation travel?" she asked quickly. Lynley knew about all the weird accidents that could happen to pregnant women when they apparated...blegh.

Floo was hard, too, but possible. And Portkeys were dangerous for the fetus as well.

But anyways, not to scare Gabby.

"Oh, okay, chocolate and pickles. The most normal thing to want on your ice cream ever," Lynley teased a little. She was undecided about what she wanted, still. Too many choices!

Siiiiigh. The Archer conversation was dragging on, and Lynley just didn't feel inclined her change her mind about him at all. "Not everyone has to like everyone else, you know," she said quickly. "Maybe I just don't like Archer."

More of Lynley acting like her mother. Gabby found it rather funny. Though she did appreciate the concern in a way, she was a grown woman and could take care of herself. "I stopped apparating as soon as I found out that I was pregnant. That's why we're staying at the place in London that Archer inherited from his parents; we thought it was best for our baby." Neither of them had really WANTED to stay in the house, however. "Of course we are still living in the magical tent, though it's now in the backyard." Ignoring the fact that she hadn't told Lynley about the housing situation when the invitation to come over could be made. It could be a lot of fun to mess with people and the image of Lynley seeing the tent for the first time would have had her in hysterics. Shame it never got to happen.

Amused eyeroll. "I'm sure if you were pregnant you would be wanting things like ice cream and pickles too." JUST SAYING. Of course she couldn't imagine her boss pregnant but things happened. And even if they DIDN'T happen... well, that didn't make her any less correct. Pregnancy cravings could be weird. Period. "Better make that a big cone too. I don't want only two scoops." Otherwise said ice cream was being dumped on her friend's head.

More eye rolling. Someone was set in her ways and not willing to change her opinion. Typical Lynley. Gabby bit her tongue to keep herself from saying something totally rude. The temptation to lash out was real but she was not going to stoop to that level. She was going to be the better person. She was also going to get that free ice cream cone because HUNGRY. "Well, are you at least happy for me? Even if you think Archer is way too old for me and making me move too fast?" Neither of those things were true and Lynley was going to find out for herself soon enough. Then she would be asking for forgiveness.

Lynley............blinked.

A magical..............................tent.

A magical tent.

Gabby and Archer LIVED IN A BLOODY TENT?! Lynley grabbed Gabby's hand quickly. "Oh honey...do you need money for a house? You don't need to live in a tent..." regardless of how..spacious they could be on the inside. "I don't mind at all helping you both out.." Mostly Gabby, though. Archer could live in a tent if he very well wanted to.

"Oh, I wouldn't be pregnant to begin with, I promise you that." She shrugged. It wasn't going to happen. Ever. "And FIIIIINE a lot of ice cream--Merlin--" Lynley zoomed off to order them both ice cream. She got herself something relatively simple--vanilla. Boring today, but she wanted a lot of toppings so...she thought that'd be best for her figure. "I'm happy for you...if you're happy. But if you ever aren't, you can always come to me." Or stay with her. Whatever she needed.

As Lynley suddenly grabbed her hand, Gabby's eyes widened. She had no idea what was going on until money was brought up. "Oh, that's a really kind offer, but we have a house. We're staying in the tent in the backyard." They were NOT poor and they never would be. There was no way that she would EVER live in squalor. In the worst case scenario she would have to give up buying herself clothes and swimsuits and that was something that neither looked forward to since Archer liked her modeling everything for him. Especially the swimsuits.

Uh huh. Gabby shook her head. "Well, I can't see it either but then I couldn't see myself being pregnant until it happened." Especially after the false alarm but she didn't really like to think about that. She hadn't even loved Marco in the first place. Whatever, because ICE CREAM. Lynley had made sure to get her a lot and... vanilla? Really? "Pfft. And you were teasing me about getting vanilla earlier." Just saying because she could. Tisk tisk. Happily she snatched up her ice cream so that she could put pickles on it. "I've never been so happy in my life. You mean if I leave Archer?" There was no IF about it because she was NOT going to leave her husband ever. She loved him more and more every day.

Ice cream was always a given during summer trips to Diagon Alley and of course that was pretty much one of the first places he'd visit. He had his usual favorites, though he was trying to expand those lately too after having had the chance to sample some other flavors.

Once he had gotten himself a triple scoop sundae of Chocolate Frog, Cookies N Cream, and Orange Sherbert, he found himself in front of the toppings bar. Had this been here last summer? He didn't remember seeing it, but it looked really cool. The 14 year old watched someone else use it so he knew how to operate it, then he stepped forward in line.

ICE CREAM!

A visit to Florean's always made Ariadne happy. She remembered her sister once telling her that her mother (her sister's mother, that is) once owned this place. How cool would THAT be?! Ariadne paid for her double scooped treat then headed over to the toppings bar to add more to it. Gummy bears! Chocolate syrup! Sprinkles! It was all here, and she scurried over to start helping herself to a treat she knew would probably end up being too big for her to eat.

Ariadne maneuvered around the others gathered at the toppings bar and made her way to the gummy bears. She sprinkled a small handful of them on top of her ice cream, while at the same time noticing a boy who looked to be about her age. "Hey," she casually said, giving him a small smile. She didn't recognize him from Hogwarts, but then again, there were tons of wizarding schools in the world. He could be a student ANYWHERE. "What are you getting? I'm kind of stuck between what I usually get and wanting to try something new."

Yeah. She just totally struck up a conversation with someone she didn't even know. Heh.

Yeah. She just totally struck up a conversation with someone she didn't even know. Heh.
Henry was still contemplating on which toppings to get for his sundae, when he noticed a girl on the other side of the toppings bar getting some gummy bears for herself. Hmm, yeah, those looked pretty good, but he'd probably get more than that too.

He gave her a slightly bigger smile in return for her small one. The fourteen year old had no problem having a conversation with anyone who might be nearby, whether he knew them or not. "Oh, hi.. um, I'm not sure exactly. There's a lot of choices. But those gummy bears look good." He reached over and got a scoop to sprinkle over his sundae. "Chocolate chips are always a given.. and I was eyeing up that marshmallow fluff." Of course, he didn't want it to be too decadent, but it sounded really good, so he started to help himself to those.

"What were you thinking about getting?" Maybe she'd have an idea that he hadn't thought of and would want to try.
