Default Party Room


Having a birthday party? In need of a meeting room for you and your colleagues? Looking for the perfect spot to host your business' latest meet and greet? Wanting to host a "Back to School" or "End of School" party for you and your friends? Look no further than Florean Fortescue's private Party Room. Located inside the parlour and behind an ordinary looking door located on the left wall, this extraordinarily-decorated room will be just perfect for any of your special occasions.

Similar to the seating arrangements inside the front of the parlour, the seating arrangements in this room also consist of padded, red-leathered booths. The same menus and napkin dispensers can also be found at every table. If you're hosting a birthday party, "Back to School Party," "End of School Party," or anything of the sort, this room will be equipped with a music station and several games for you and your friends to play. If you're hosting a more serious gathering, such as a business meeting or something of that sort, enough tables will be provided to accommodate your entire party and decorate accordingly. Any additional requests will have to be discussed with the shopkeeper prior to your get-together.

Summer time is always for fun, but this summer is different. The sun seems to be warmer, the air seems to be fresher, and everyone is still trying to make sense out of the last few months. One thing that everyone can look forward to is Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour whimsical ice cream social being held in the afternoon of July 9th. Shopkeeper Leon Brown felt a celebration was in order and along with the other shopkeepers of Diagon Alley set up a over the top fun Ice cream afternoon.

The party room is all decorated in streamers and balloons, music can be heard throughout the shop. With plenty of places to sit you can enjoy the ice cream specials, as well as heading over to the topping bar to make your own creations. Come for the ice cream but stay for the fun filled activities and snacks. Food as been catered by the Leaky Cauldron. Paradise Piercings and Tattoos has a table set up for you to get some face painting or a temporary tattoo of your liking. Play a game of inflatable bowling or head to the little outside area just off the party room for some water balloon fun.

SPOILER!!: Ice Cream Specials

[ hover over each for a description! ]







OOC: Face painting and Tattoo is by Paradise Piercings and Tattoos , so the Shopkeeper, Vintani Kama, doing it is RP'd by MadMadamMalfoy

It was the first time that Amelia had really ventured out of the house all summer. After learning that her grandaddy Lars had been killed in battle, Amelia had spent the first part of summer locked in her bedroom wishing that her granddad would come back. But after several conversations with her parents (and a couple terrible talks with her stupid, evil brother), Amelia finally started to move on without her favorite person.

Thankfully, her other favorite person, Honora, was at her side for her first outing of the summer. Her parents almost had to force Amelia to go, but it was easier to get her to go once her older sister was designated as her chaperone for the day. Honora always made things better. Ice cream usually did too, so things were starting to look up.

Amelia walked back into the party room and looked around at all the fun decorations, ice cream, and - ooh! Face painting! That looked fun.


OOC: Amelia is currently 12 years old and is a Hufflepuff. She just finished her first year at Hogwarts, but I obviously don't normally play her on site. But if your students are her age, they likely know her!

Ash was mostly only here for the food. And to like, keep up appearances or whatever. Prove that she was "alive and well". Or pretend. So here she was, a this party, here mostly for the benefit of her worried friends and family. She was not going to think about the fact that technically she was a big fat liar. She walked up to Amelia, confident smile plastered on her face, confident walking, confident outfit, social and confident vibes. "Cool party." There. At least one person who could say 'Ash seems fine to me. She totally doesn't need therapy anymore.' One more witness. One more person fooled. "What's your favorite type of ice cream? I like anything with chocolate." And she nodded. Nothing to see here. Just two normal people talking. Neither of them were faking. Definitely, totally not. Nope. Two normal fine people... two normal fine... two normal... two How long was this party going to last? She could only fake for a couple hours at a time, at most. But hey, some people were easier to lie to. She hoped that this girl was one of them. "I'm going to get a temporary tattoo." That part was true, at least. You can do this, Ash. You can handle this social interaction.

Okay Lisa was a BIG fan of ice cream. She did prefer cookies to be frank buuuut ice cream was a liquidy-solid close second.

And Floreans was the bomb.com! Or so she had heard from her brother’s really NIIIIIIIICE ex-girlfriend that Florean’s was amazing. Sooooo Lisa just had to check it out. After taking dance lessons at Moon Movements with said ex-girlfriend of her brother’s, she headed to Diagon Alley to go find this palace of delicious icy yumminess.

She ventured into the shop and wandered. Her little legs took her back to a room decorated for a party. Streamers, balloons, confetti. Magical.

Eyes as wide as tea cup saucers, Lisa paused in her steps and just took the whole room in.

bombbbb dot com....” she repeated as she did a twirl in her skirt. Wow.....

Serena pouted with a scowl on her face when her mom dropped her off at Florean's party-something. Apparently, goblins didn't like it when an eleven year old tried to out-wit them, so her mom didn't like taking her to Gringotss anymore. It wasn't HER fault that goblins were rude and she had to be rude back to them. Hmph.

It didn't matter, she guessed. At least there was ice cream here and she didn't have to wait in line and die of boredom. This, though, made her feel like she was going to party tiny babies, and she had far out grew them a long while ago.

Again, Serena reminded herself there was ice cream--

...And a bomb, according to Twirly McTwirl there.

"Are we going to explode?" she asked, arms folding across her chest. Classic, death by ice cream.

Skiiirts were great- especially ones that were flown- spinning was fun’

She was, however, interrupted by someone else. Lisa took a sharp turn mid turn to face the newcomer. She eyed the girl up and down, noting the bright red hair and immediately thinking that her hair was the prettiest shade of red that she had ever seen. Now to her question .... She gave a slight pause, considering the options, and then spoke, “Maaaybe one has some exploding candy in it! Buuuut maybe the cause is sugar overload. I think a sore tummy is worst case scenario so may have to roll someone up the hill on their way home.

She quirked an eyebrow at firelady to her left. “Do you think we will? Is that an ice cream flavor that they have??

Puff by day, snake by night | Mj's bestie | Always UP to Something...

It was time they were coming! Leo was as excited as the kids for the social to get started. "Hellllllllo!!" He waved at all the costumers coming in. "I hope you are ready for some fun! Grab your cones or bowls and head to the toppings bar to create a new sweet treat or try one of our amazing new summer specials!" He walked around greeting everyone and passing out balloons to each and every person no matter if they were a child or an adult. He always had a theory, parents needed to have fun too.

"Miss Kama is here to give temporary tattoos and face painting if you are wanting and I hope you join me for a game of bowling or water balloons." It was a warm day and who didn't like balloons on a day like today. Who wants a scoop of HollingBerry Blast in honor of our awesome minister?"[/b]




This was Cece's first big thing before Hogwarts. She had been out with her mother and saw the sign and begged her mom to come. "Mum, mum look at all the ice cream, look at all those peanuts." She had to have some of all or just one or maybe three. She loved ice cream and just wanted to jump right in. "Can I get a tattoo or paint my face as a cat?" Looking up at her mum and seeing her nod Cece took that as a yes and took off towards the table.

She looked around and took a balloon. What did she want to do first though? "Anyone want to play with the water balloons with me?" That sounded fun, maybe they could hit a parent by accident of course.

Scarlett had run off in front of her family and was there first BECAUSE it was all SO FUN, SHE WAS SURE OF IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW, LOOK AT ALL OF THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT WAS BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!! A BALLOON!!! SHE WANTED A BALLOON!!!!! "THANKS!" She exclaimed after taking one. The 11 year-old immediately went to grab a cone BECAUSE she was READY for some ICE CREAM!! WHATEVER FLAVOUR TOO!!!! And obviously she'd go for the CONE instead of the BOWL because you could EAT the CONE!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!

And the person who had given her the balloon said something about joining him for bowling or water balloons!?!?!?! "ME!!!!!!!!" She exclaimed again, raising the hand that was holding the cone while jumping up and down in excitement. And then he asked who wanted a scoop of that kind of ice cream!!!! "ME!!!!!!!!!" Scarlett said again, still jumping. This time she looked up at her balloon which was also bouncing all over the place in the air. COOL.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaand a girl then asked if anyone wanted to PLAY with HER. "MEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!" SCARLETT WANTED TO DO EVERYTHING, SHE WANTED TO DO AAAAAALLL THE THIIINGSSSSSS.


Odd as it all was, Sophie partly wanted to stay home mainly to protect her husband, of all people. She honestly believed her children would be okay - if she tagged along, ready to quickly draw her wand and curse anyone who dared look at them funny -, but she could tell the final battle at Hogwarts had taken a toll on Mordred and if she could, she'd create a little cocoon to keep him safe and nicely snuggled in. Alas, real life awaited them, so they should start getting used to the new normal sooner than later. So there they were. Her eyes were on all four of her children, yet her hand was in her husband's, just in case.

She wouldn't think twice if anyone looked at him funny too, so watch out, people. Hmph.

Indeed, Sophie Mordaunt was uncharacteristically serious - she had been since she heard Minister Hollingberry's message calling them to go to Hogwarts, to be honest - when she walked into the ice cream parlour. Her youngest daughter's shouting didn't faze her, and she looked around. Nice. Maybe this would help her relax a b--

NO. Constant vigilance, as one once said. The war might be over, but one never knew.

She was watching.

Default Violet has arrived

"You don't need to stay in here with me if you don't want, I'm perfectly fine!" Violet hissed to her uncle in a low voice. This was the first chance she'd had to go out since returning from Hogwarts and he had been following her everywhere.

"Father said not to let you out of my sight, and that's exactly what I'm going to do," Helicanus replied in his maddeningly calm voice. "And given a choice between having you made at me or him, I think you can guess which one I'll take."

Violet sighed, not entirely to herself and not all that quietly. This was worse than last summer, after her running away escapade. Then she was grounded because they were afraid she'd wander off again, but this year, they were actually afraid something would happen to her. As if everything that could happen hadn't already happened, and at Hogwarts, that supposedly safe location. "All right, then, but please go sit to the side somewhere and don't follow me around. Please."

Violet had finally managed to beg permission to go to Diagon Alley to buy some new clothes, befitting her larger and rounder size and soon-to-be young lady of sixteen status. She smoothed down the flowing, flowered skirt of her summer dress nervously--this was a lot more color and less fabric than she had been used to wearing. But she'd finally gotten tired of the sensible clothes and sensible hair she used to prefer; she wanted to look different, grown-up---pretty. But she felt awkward trying out her new look in public.

She had a guilty feeling that she should not be concentrating on such frivolous things after the turmoil, danger, and tragedies of the past year, not to mention the fact that her youngest uncle was still in a coma at St. Mungo's from an injury he'd received in the battle. But she was, after all, a teen-aged girl, and she'd spent the last year trying to deal with the Neo-Alliance and fear and prejudice and worry, not to mention spending months in a dark, damp, dirty little room with a bunch of other kids. A year she had hoped to start socializing more, try to be more outgoing, less awkward...maybe find a boyfriend or something. In teenage terms, that was a lost year, and Violet was determined to have a little fun this summer. She looked around to see if she saw anyone she knew.

Uhhh...that's not what she meant, but Serena was going to go with it. "Exploding candy? Like the exploding bonbon sweets? They have chocolate," she said, wrinkling her cute little nose. The little red head could eat about anything, just not chocolate.

At the rolling part, Serena ACTUALLY cracked a small amused smile. "Why roll up a hill, wouldn't that make you vomit?" Eww. "There's a potion for that. In fact, I know how to make it." Partially. Her mum had stopped her in the middle of it. Boo.

NO. Constant vigilance, as one once said. The war might be over, but one never knew.

She was watching.


Noah trudged along the familiar path of Diagon Alley with his whole family in tow and headed for the ice cream parlor to meet up with their extended brood namely the Summers and Gunters. He wasn't particularly excited to be out and about, after the events of the past term, but he knew all too well that their mum wouldn't hear any of it. In fact, he hasn't had the chance to spend time with his own friends alone, adding up to the frustration that has been slowly and steadily brewing inside him. He could swear he was growing backwards-- he was turning 16 that year and here he was being chaperoned by his parents.

He looked over his shoulder to let the rest of his family catch up to him, and the frustration turned to annoyance, and then to shame. Noah turned his back on them and hung his head as the picture of his disheveled parents after the war resurfaced in his mind. He even saw his second cousins, the lot of them, his grandpa Aldrich, and his uncle-grandpa Ames. To see them come out in full force was really something to be cherished. Noah sighed as the piercing voice of Scar rang out for the whole store to hear. Yes, right. Ice cream. Ice cream was supposed to make them feel better, right? Wasn't it an old motto of Aunt Ella's? He looked over his shoulder again, ignoring his worried and tired parents, and called out to Mackenzie. "Nugget, let's go get some ice cream." he gestured his head towards the line and waited for his youngest sibling to extract himself from their father's side.


The eight-year-old slowly turned his attention from his father to Noah, and then back to their dad again. Ice cream did sound like a good idea, especially for a warm day, but he was pretty busy "guarding" his dad too. He'd seen their dad exhausted at times, but not the kind of exhaustion that he was seeing now. Mackenzie's brows furrowed in thought as he gazed at his mother next who, by the looks of it, was about ready to blow fire out of her nose like a dragon. Mackenzie had heard things about a huge fight and an emergency, and he understood that that was over and done with and that everything is back to normal...whatever normal meant for their world, anyway. The boy's frown deepened as a hand was felt on top of his head. He looked up at his dad again who was now grinning at him, as if knowing what was going on inside his little head.

The days turned to weeks, and Mordred wasn't exactly liking the pace of his "recovery". It was painfully slow, and the recollection of that day was on repeat every single day. The sight, the smell, the falling bodies, the lifeless bodies-- of which some were old friends, the inferi, his lifelong friends, his cousins, his father and uncle, his wife, his mother-in-law, and his children. To see them all in a chaotic battleground, and the possibility of losing them all at once in one day was something that did not sit well with him. That day, everything turned black and white for him. For the first time in his life, he didn't know what the following day would bring. The uncertainty was too much for him-- and he reckoned for anyone in that battlefield, especially the parents who fought for their children. Fight or die. Black or white.

The feel of his wife's hand in his, and the tiny warm body of their youngest at his side brought him back to the present. Ahead was their twins Noah and Catherine-- both well into their teenage years; strong and sure, and Scarlett who was out to attack the ice cream shop. Mordred bit his lower lip as he contemplated on his own family; he never planned on having one back in the day, but fate had other plans for him, apparently. It was the kind of blessing he never thought he needed, nor deserved but for sure, it made him less miserable and more optimistic. Mordred realized that he was given this family for a good reason, and if by some wicked turn of events, require him to go on a battle again, he'd do it again. He rested his hand on Enzo's head and urged him to go with his brother. He could feel his piercing green eyes bore into him, and the concern was a bit overwhelming. Mordred need not burst into tears out in the open; never in his lifetime will that happen.

He then turned towards his wife, who by the way was still in battle mode, and pulled her towards him enveloping her in a side hug. Through the years, she's become more and more like a true Mordaunt woman. The family seems to have rubbed off on her slowly, but surely. She was a wicked tempest. The thought made him grin in amusement, seeing how the roles seem to have been reversed. However, he was not complaining one bit. Mordred was thankful for her. Rubbing her shoulder, and kissing her temple, he ushered themselves further into the shop and got a table for the group. Mordred got a glimpse of his reflection across the room and was stunned to see just how stressed out he was. It didn't help that streaks of silver hair were now present on his beautiful head. Sign of the times, perhaps? The dragonologist brushed his hair with his fingers in an attempt to hide the silver streaks but to no avail. "I am not going to hear the end of this white hair business from the Summers." he said to Sophie as he tried to lighten the mood.

Newly turned thirteen year old Karleigh was super excited for the ice cream party that just happened to be going on while she was out shopping for school supplies on Diagon Alley that specific day in July. And once she saw it advertised, she was distracted enough that she head into the ice cream shop straight away before doing any of her shopping. That was okay though; she could always do it later after she had her fill of ice cream.

Chocolate and chocolate varieties were her favorites, but she liked fruity kinds too, as long as they were sweet. But as the rising third year Gryffindor walked in, she was pleasantly surprised to see they were offering summer specials. And! "Omigosh!" she squealed as she rushed up to the counter and asked the shopkeeper. "Can I have the unicorn cone??" Unicorns were her absolute favorite and she didn't even care what the flavor was. It looked good so it was probably delicious anyway!

Dahlia had readily accepted the invite to tag along with her big sister Hady and her nieces and nephew for a day in Diagon Alley. There was only so many days that she could really spend at home, okay, that was a lie. She had grown used to being at home but her Papa had been making sure she was getting out a bit each and everyday. This most certainly counted.

Somewhere between the Magical Menagerie and the Fountain outside that everyone had to toss coins into. Or Bryony demanding piggyback rides. Maybe it was the shouting and bickering between Bryony and Logan because the latter was 'walking' to fast and the former had 'wittle wegs'. But Merlin her head hurt! And her legs! What she needed was some serious sugar in the form of ice cream!

Which is how she ended up walking through the doors of ice cream shop on this particular day with a four year old on her back. It probably wasn't the smartest thing in the world, giving already hyper kids sugary sweets but hey, she was twelve and she was trying to do her big sis a favor and help out.

Two matching pairs of blue eyes tried to take in everything all at once. Ice cream. Balloons. Face paint and temporary tattoos. Where were they even supposed to start?! It was a good thing she hadn't set the small blonde down yet or there might've been a biiiiiig problem!

A VERY eager Christianna came BURSTING into the ice cream party because HELLO ICE CREAM and the thirteen year old was in desperate need of sugar sustenance!! This was the most delicious news to ever hear about, almost as exciting as when she turned into a TEENAGER after her pretty recent birthday. She was originally out shopping with her brother Derek and sister Nadine to treat herself to some lovely birthday presents in Diagon Alley, thank you Mummy and Daddy, but there were clearly more important things at hand now!

She may have lost Derek and Nadine in her frantic run to the party but it was fine, she was fine! It was more than likely they would find her, they always did. The blonde had already made up her mind that ice cream must be had now before she could continue her birthday shopping spree! Christianna's eyes eagerly scanned over the VERY COLORFUL OPTIONS before recognizing a very familiar voice, quickly taking notice of her dormmate KARLEIGH!!!! Before she could greet her, she heard what Karleigh had ordered and didn't even hesitate quickly requesting the SAME EXACT THING! "Please make that two UniCones!!!!" Once priorities were made she turned her attention back to Karleigh waving eagerly, "Hi Karleigh!!"

The sight, the smell, the falling bodies, the lifeless bodies-- of which some were old friends, the inferi, his lifelong friends, his cousins, his father and uncle, his wife, his mother-in-law, and his children. To see them all in a chaotic battleground, and the possibility of losing them all at once in one day was something that did not sit well with him. That day, everything turned black and white for him. For the first time in his life, he didn't know what the following day would bring. The uncertainty was too much for him-- and he reckoned for anyone in that battlefield, especially the parents who fought for their children. Fight or die. Black or white.

The feel of his wife's hand in his, and the tiny warm body of their youngest at his side brought him back to the present. Ahead was their twins Noah and Catherine-- both well into their teenage years; strong and sure, and Scarlett who was out to attack the ice cream shop. Mordred bit his lower lip as he contemplated on his own family; he never planned on having one back in the day, but fate had other plans for him, apparently. It was the kind of blessing he never thought he needed, nor deserved but for sure, it made him less miserable and more optimistic. Mordred realized that he was given this family for a good reason, and if by some wicked turn of events, require him to go on a battle again, he'd do it again. He rested his hand on Enzo's head and urged him to go with his brother. He could feel his piercing green eyes bore into him, and the concern was a bit overwhelming. Mordred need not burst into tears out in the open; never in his lifetime will that happen.

He then turned towards his wife, who by the way was still in battle mode, and pulled her towards him enveloping her in a side hug. Through the years, she's become more and more like a true Mordaunt woman. The family seems to have rubbed off on her slowly, but surely. She was a wicked tempest. The thought made him grin in amusement, seeing how the roles seem to have been reversed. However, he was not complaining one bit. Mordred was thankful for her. Rubbing her shoulder, and kissing her temple, he ushered themselves further into the shop and got a table for the group. Mordred got a glimpse of his reflection across the room and was stunned to see just how stressed out he was. It didn't help that streaks of silver hair were now present on his beautiful head. Sign of the times, perhaps? The dragonologist brushed his hair with his fingers in an attempt to hide the silver streaks but to no avail. "I am not going to hear the end of this white hair business from the Summers." he said to Sophie as he tried to lighten the mood.
Mordred's side hug made Sophie temporarily take her eyes off her children - though she had eyes in the back of her head, OKAY, you bet your sweet buns she was still watching them all - to look up at him. Was he okay? Did he need anything? Could he cope with this social situation right now? She needed to KNOW. She tried to read his expression as she wrapped her own arm around his waist. "You okay?" She asked, again: just in case.

She squeezed him ever so slightly when he gave her the kiss. Okay, so maybe he was fine. Or as fine as Mordred Mordaunt could get at the moment. Hm. Sophie still kept her eyes on him, knowing her husband a bit too well.

And. She saw that, alright. His brushing his hair after seeing his reflection. "You're still the best looking man I've ever known." She said truthfully, giving him one of the first small smiles since it all happened. Well, maybe this ice cream party would help her relax a bit after all.

.............Somewhat. Eyes in the back of her head, though. She still had them.

It had been a crazy year and summer vacation hadn't been very helpful in helping Kaira heal. Her family had been sweet and had been putting in effort into making her feel better, however the term she had had had left a huge impact on her.

Her sister Laila had declared that they go on a family outing to the Diagon Alley to have icecreams and do some shopping. That is how Kaira and Laila Parker landed here, at Florean Fortescue's.

Kaira walked into the parlour. The place smelled of joy and vibrance. She felt good. That is when she noticed Dahlia from the Divination class. She had to say hi.

'Hiii!,' Kaira said, giving Dahlia a huge hug. Sure, they weren't close, but she felt good to see someone she knew.

How had he gotten here? Just when had he drawn the short stick and ended p in his predicament?

The only good thing about this getup was ... well ... no. Actually there was nothing good about this and he dreaded thinking about what this bear head was doing to his luxurious locks. His poor curls would suffer a fate worse than helmet hair and despite the enchantments in place to prevent overheating, the Owl Post shopkeeper could feel the perspiration pooling around his curls and ust generally making him a miserable man despite the bear's pink, purple, and blue cheery tie-dye disposition.

But, not the sort of man to do things in half measures, Zachaël was here and with bear claws full of little ice cream balloons to hand out to the patrons of the shop along with Leo. At least no one could see the complete discomfort on his face while he did so - solely because of his hair. Zachaël was rather fond of children and would babysit now and then for those in his inner circle and participated in the occasional game of dress up (he had been informed that he made for a stunning mermaid princess on more than one occasion)...but THIS was crossing some line.

Clearing his throat, he disguised his voice to be more squeaky and dainty while bouncing on his toes. "Whoooooo still needs a balloooooon? Come get one from your new friend, Bubble Yum Bear!"

Had he mentioned how miserable he was yet?

And everyone needed to stay FAR away from him with their water balloons. The hair was experiencing enough abuse as it was.

Running into friends in DA tended to happen rather frequently during the summer months, Lia knew this. And yet she was still caught off guard when she was suddenly being hugged by one of the girls whom had been her dorm with her at Hogwarts. It was a little awkward trying to hug back without dropping the little blonde who was clinging to her back but she somehow managed a one arm hug if one could call it that. Hopefully Kaira didn't think she was being rude because she wasn't trying to, it was simply that she was trying not to drop her niece.

"Hi," Dahlia replied more softly than she had initially meant to. Previous things had a big impact on how she was now handling certain situations. "How has your summer been?"

Bryony had been busy taking everything in. The small four year old blonde had been in here tons of times before but each time there was a special event, things changed. Which meant there was lots to look at. All the colors, balloons, ice creams and people. This could be lots of fun. Unless she was being SQUISHED!!!!

Little legs wiggled to be freed when Lia got hugged by some random girl that she didn't know but obviously Lia knew. Thankfully she was let go quick. Bry shifted around, straightening herself up so she could see over her auntie's shoulder. "Wia, Wia... ten I haz ice crweam now?" she asked in her most sweetest voice possible knowing that no one could say no to that.


Dahlia gave a quiet laugh. "Only if I can get some too," she answered, which was met with a giggle and a nod of the blonde child's head. "Let's go see what flavors they have. Do you want to come with us?" Lia looked at Kaira questioningly.

Oops. She hoped she hadn't hurt the cute kiddo while hugging her friend. Oh my god, wasn't the kid cute?

'Hiii cutie!,' she said, giving the kid a slight peck on her forehead. 'Your cousin?,' she asked.

'Summer has been' overwhelming? Haunted by the ghosts of the past year? Kaira struggled to find a word to express what she felt. 'okay I guess. I mean..after the year that was..' she trailed away. 'How was yours?'

She was happily distracted by the child asking for ice cream. 'Aww..she is SO cute!,' Kaira remarked. Ice cream sounded like a good idea. 'Yesss..let's get ice-cream!'

Vitani Kama
Paradise Piercings and Tattoos
Default Temporary Tattoos & Face Painting here!
1/2 of Roston ~ Rhibear ~ Madam Solo ~ Pirate Princess ~ Gryffinclaw ~ Just a doll

While this little ice cream social was a far cry from the extravagant parties of Paris and New York, it was a party nonetheless, and Vitani Kama was dressed to impress in a cheery yellow dress, gold necklace, and several bangles. She sat at a table in the back corner of the party room, far away from any shenanigans that might damage her materials - or worse, her outfit! Her supplies were neatly laid out in front of her: her paints, crayons, and brushes for face painting on her right; her temporary tattoos sorted by design on her left.

She made sure to bring a wide variety for the children to choose from. There were symbol tattoos (hearts, rainbows, flowers, etc.) creature tattoos both magical and non-magical (unicorns, dragons, cats, dogs, etc.), and a few new victory-inspired designs (a black thestral silhouette to honor those who died, four different phoenix designs in each of the Hogwarts house colors to represent the wizarding community coming together, and, her personal favorite, a moving tattoo of the Deathly Hallows symbol being engulfed in flames and transformed into a phoenix to represent the Order of the Phoenix’s triumph over the Neo-Alliance).

She looked up, acknowledging Leo with a nod as he said her name, but the mention of water balloons earned a warning eyebrow raise. He’d better keep those water balloons away from her if he knew what was good for him! She was happy to help, but she would not do so by looking ridiculous! That was why she’d volunteered to do this. Otherwise she might’ve been one of those poor souls roped into playing the Ice Cream Bears. She felt for them; she really did. Maybe she’d give the other shopkeepers some free merchandise from her shop to ease the indignity later.

For now, she had other things to do. Vitani looked around the room, cleared her throat, and said, Anyone wanting tattoos or face paint, please form a line in front of this table!”

Was he okay?

Compared to the past weeks, he was doing better. Still not his 100% but better. Mordred gave her his usual grin and nod to assure the ever worried wife and mama badger that he'll be able to survive this...whatever it was that they got themselves in to. It looked like a children's party to him, and it most likely was one considering all the mascots and sweets and face paintings going on. On a typical day and in typical Mordred fashion, he would have been annoyed with all the energy. One Scarlett Leonor Mordaunt was enough for him to last a lifetime, thank you very much. However, despite the noise, Mordred didn't have the heart to complain. Kids, tweens, and teens were out and about, and that meant they were alive and safe and ready for the new term. How about the parents of these kids though? Are they ready for the new term? For whatever is to come?

Thoughts were interrupted again, but again, Mordred was grateful for it. He'd been spiralling for days, and a good conversation just might be what he needed at the moment. "Still?" Mordred asked. "Is there a possibility you'd find another better looking man in the future?" he pressed on, tucking Sophie's hair behind her ear and gave her a wink. Decades later and four kids after she hasn't changed. He couldn't help but sigh at the thought of her not making it out of the war. With that very troubling thought, he scooted closer to her and have her lean on him. To hell with public displays of affection. He needed Sophie to anchor himself in the present.

She walked up to Amelia, confident smile plastered on her face, confident walking, confident outfit, social and confident vibes. "Cool party." There. At least one person who could say 'Ash seems fine to me. She totally doesn't need therapy anymore.' One more witness. One more person fooled. "What's your favorite type of ice cream? I like anything with chocolate." And she nodded. Nothing to see here. Just two normal people talking. Neither of them were faking. Definitely, totally not. Nope. Two normal fine people... two normal fine... two normal... two How long was this party going to last? She could only fake for a couple hours at a time, at most. But hey, some people were easier to lie to. She hoped that this girl was one of them. "I'm going to get a temporary tattoo." That part was true, at least. You can do this, Ash. You can handle this social interaction.
Amelia was just about to get overwhelmed by the amount of people that were in the room, but she was suddenly distracted by someone talking to her. The young hufflepuff turned to see Ash suddenly talking to her and asking about ice cream. "I like chocolate," she said in agreement. "But my favorite is mint chocolate chip."

Ash probably couldn't have found a better person to talk to. Amelia couldn't tell a difference. She was a rather gullible young thing.

Ooh, temporary tattoo?

Just as Ash had mentioned it, Amelia heard a woman call out to form a line. What timing! "Let's go get one!" she said to Ash - and before she could say anything else, the young blonde grabbed Ash by the arm and tugged her towards the woman. "We want tattoos! Well, she wants one," she said, gesturing to Ash. "I want my face painted, though.

"Oooh, I love mint chocolate chip." Truth. Great flavor. "I'm really glad I came to this party." Half-truth. It was alright for now. Ash got in line robotically, putting on her 'excited' face. She got to the front pretty quickly. "Can I have a Phoenix temporary tattoo? I like those, because, they're all like, symbolic and stuff. And they rise from the ashes." Truth. Did they have any in plain black? Or red? Or blue? That would look epic. She turned to Amelia. "What do you want your face painted as?" Irrelevant question. Whatever the answer, Ash was going to say 'cool', and it would probably be true. Unless she got some sort of weird reflective face paint that made her look like a mirror. That would be mean of the universe. But very unlikely. Let's just hope she picks a tiger or something. Something not scary. Y'know.

Mordred gave her his usual grin and nod to assure the ever worried wife and mama badger that he'll be able to survive this...whatever it was that they got themselves in to. It looked like a children's party to him, and it most likely was one considering all the mascots and sweets and face paintings going on. On a typical day and in typical Mordred fashion, he would have been annoyed with all the energy. One Scarlett Leonor Mordaunt was enough for him to last a lifetime, thank you very much. However, despite the noise, Mordred didn't have the heart to complain. Kids, tweens, and teens were out and about, and that meant they were alive and safe and ready for the new term. How about the parents of these kids though? Are they ready for the new term? For whatever is to come?

Thoughts were interrupted again, but again, Mordred was grateful for it. He'd been spiralling for days, and a good conversation just might be what he needed at the moment. "Still?" Mordred asked. "Is there a possibility you'd find another better looking man in the future?" he pressed on, tucking Sophie's hair behind her ear and gave her a wink. Decades later and four kids after she hasn't changed. He couldn't help but sigh at the thought of her not making it out of the war. With that very troubling thought, he scooted closer to her and have her lean on him. To hell with public displays of affection. He needed Sophie to anchor himself in the present.
Sophie did her best to read her husband, and she had gotten exponentially better at it after all these years. Mordred was good at masking emotions, but now it was much harder for him to do so from her. She considered that a great achievement of hers, in fact. "Let me know when you'd like to leave, okay?" Yep, she had said when and not if because she was almost sure he would be the one calling it a day at one point or another. Well, either him or Catherine, but it was more likely the others would listen to their father rather than their sister.

A chuckle escaped Sophie's lips after her husband's question. She immediately opened her mouth to retort when the image of their active Minister flashed in her mind, making her blink and think for a second. Tilting her head, she considered what he had said before replying. "No, I'm pretty sure you'd still be the best looking one, even if there are others who are handsome too." And truth be told, there were - welp -, but Mordred was Mordred, you know. No one else was Mordred, so there was that. Simple.

Her smile warmed up and grew a little as he winked and pulled her closer. Now wrapping both her arms around him, she snuggled up to him and looked back to where their children were. Still watching, although now a bit less intently. Her husband clearly had magical powers, and not only of the wizarding kind.


Ugh, her parents should get a room.

Catherine's lips were pursed as she sat across from the both of them, arms and legs crossed. She made sure to keep her body fully turned away from them because that was something she was not there to see. She had enough of that at their home.

Another thing she was not too keen on seeing was that weird bear person being way too cheerful with those kids. The Ravenclaw took a deep breath and tried to convince herself that the outing had been a good choice. The family was all together, they were going to meet with their friends and have a good day.

Unfortunately her family and friends' view of a 'good day out' was normally very different from her own. She sighed heavily as she continued to watch that silly man in a silly costume, waiting for her friends to arrive so she could at least have a nice conversation.
