Default Courtyard and Brick Wall



The Leaky Cauldron sits auspiciously as part of the Muggle World, the portal to Diagon Alley. Stepping out the back door of the Leaky Cauldron, it leads to the open patio that is deceivingly large. Once inside the Courtyard the stone path circles around the green area, which is a popular place for young children to relax upon during summer holidays and is also a popular place for, people to lie out and have lunch.

On the green, a tall stone fountain sits and waits for a lucky sickle or two to find its way to the bottom of the fountain. However, the incredible thing about the fountain is the stone is rests upon. The stone floor underneath and surrounding the fountain is charmed to light up with each step a person makes on the stone floor. The color traces the outside of the traveler’s foot and each new step is a fresh new color.

Out on the green surrounding the fountain is the home to a garden of flowers that are freshly planted. Each little patch of flowers is also charmed by the former owner, Harley, to smell of a different kind of treat at the Leaky Cauldron, i.e.. Butterbeer Flowers.

Off to the side of the Courtyard, a winding stone pathway leads to a quaint little pond filled with a hundred carp fish that Ryoma, a previous owner, had specially imported from Japan. This little pond is tucked in the back of the Courtyard and serves as a little treat to all who happen upon it. Next to the pond is a simple wooden box with a money hole in the top. Dispense ten sickles and the box produces fish food to feed the carp.

The owner asks that everyone, including little witches and wizards, pick up after themselves.

Though he wasn't sharing info, he was at least being shared the space even if he did steal it.

Dash smiled, "You don't like kids, I take it?" Interesting questions for one. He would answer them, but he liked having some questions answered beforehand. Kids in general liked asking questions and it took patience. Patience he savored but was over here spending it on the hunk. "Huh, so you're a body builder. Are you training up for a competition or something?" Must be a stressful job.

Dash was rewarded with a smirk but that was it. Interestingly enough, Rafa only just realised that he was being flirted with - a thought that had occurred to him only as the question had left his mouth a few seconds ago. Now that he thought further, it registered that he had flirted back. Well well well. This was not how Rafa had foreseen his lunch hour going.

“They’re annoying in so many ways.” The smaller ones ran around demanding attention while yelling at the top of their lungs or interfering with stuff that wasn't theirs. Worst yet were their wails. Rafael mentally shuddered just thinking about it. The teens? So much attitude. Dash couldn’t have been more off. There was another smirk and Rafa took his time in chugging down the drink. “Can’t a guy simply enjoy having workouts as a hobby?” He held Eye Candy’s gaze. “Why don’t you tell me straight up why is it that you’re so interested in my life? Is this something you do with strangers often?”

Dash chuckled as he relayed his distaste, "You're not wrong there," The amount of spilled ink in the class to clean. Students chasing the other after too much sweets. The parent-teacher conferences where it became clear who the kids were mimicking. "Sure, but sometimes you want to impress someone else when working out," Taking a sip of his drink. It was a perk, getting checked out. Keeping their eyes glued as he was asked the question.

It was a good question. Why was he still sitting here? Was it really over just a problem? "I could ask you why you're still talking with me," His eyes briefly eyeing his biceps. "By the looks of it, you could've thrown me off my chair long ago." Or at least attempted. "Sounds like you have a lot of fun with your twin, do you win in these competitions more than them?"

Of course he wasn’t wrong. Rafa had seen enough of children in Diagon Alley. Not to mention the teens he had tutored in Castelobruxo in his brief stint as a professor. Two years had been his limit, and even if Gabe hadn’t been Mernapped, Rafa would have still quit the job. “Fair point,’’ he remarked to the comment about being the workout bit. “I get the feeling that impressing others is something you like doing.” Or maybe Dash just liked impressing guys. Regardless, yeah. Rafa was impressed with what he saw.

“I could have,’’ Rafa remarked smoothly. “Who’s to say that I won’t anytime soon?” That wasn’t a threat; just some light humour. “I’d say he and I are evenly matched,’’ he continued, reaching for the Prophet again. “FYI, you invaded my personal space. I was simply being polite by not ignoring you. That can be arranged now, however.” With that, Rafael disappeared behind the paper again, raising it so that Dash could not see the huge grin on his face.

It was so fun to mess with him.

Dash continued sipping his drink, not at all surprised at the unknown gentleman holding strong, "Depends, I don't go out of my way for everyone's admiration, most just like me without the effort," He had been toted for most congeniality among his co-workers once or twice. "But I also have no qualms in revealing my cards. It takes guts to reveal yourself, after all." Not so much of a hint.

Cue one of his eyebrows raising, "Is that a challenge?" Him being thrown out now. Dash would like to see him try. Sure, he wasn't as meaty, but he held his own. Especially if he happened to be taller or not. Next thing however, his hazel eyes were meeting paper once again. He slammed his glass down before laughing a bit louder than his usual volume. He liked this style. "You know what, you're an alright guy," Adding, "You must have a lucky partner to deal with you," Wiping one of his eyes that briefly got moist from his laughter. "Since you like competitions so much, how's about a deal?"

Did Rafael like Dash? The answer came instantly: Yes. Dash was playful, sassy, mysterious… exactly like him, actually. And those eyes. Rafa liked the eyes a lot. Still, he wasn’t quite ready to let the other man know this fact. There was a strong probability that they wouldn’t be seeing each other’s faces ever again so what was the point? Excuse Rafa if he was a little skeptical: Dash had been evasive for the most part when questioned. Then again, so had he himself.

That definitely had not been a challenge; just his way of messing with him. Rafa highly suspected that Dash would put up a proper fight if necessary. The slam of the glass and the laughter made him grin even wider. A second later, his face reemerged. “So are you.” Yes, that grin was still in place even as he shook his head. There hadn't been much time for dating {due to his own fault} plus no one interested him enough to set up a second or third date. “Single.” Rafa thought that he could afford to share some info now that he had established that he liked Dash. “Okay, you have me reeled in. What are you thinking?”

It was hard to feel like the world needed Ashes when she wanted to leave a big positive impact on the world and she didn't think she was making any impact at all. Evan was extra wonderful during those times(like now), by the way. And she appreciated him and his kindness so much. Evans were very much needed in the world, she would have told him. Especially in a world with Ashes! "I obviously don't do mirrors, you know, so I've been looking at a lot of pictures and using those for reference. I'm super into self portraits now." That wasn't self-centered, was it? She liked painting other people too! It was just that she thought self-portraits helped her understand her self. "You should see my art studio! It wasn't there the last time you came to my apartment but I converted the spare bedroom." He should come over and stay as long as he wanted to. Ash loved having guests. Her apartment was too big for just her all the time. Especially now that her boyfriend AND her brother were away. Too lonely. "You should come over sometime, if you want. You'd be welcomed. As long as you don't mind my owl, rabbit, and cat." Especially Maggie the owl. Maggie was unpleasant at times.

"Doing things for myself is all... bubble baths. And piano. And journaling. And sleeping 8 hours a night. And learning to cook things myself. Theodore came over the other day to show me how to make steak." Ash liked being free, and living away from her family. She liked it a lot. Was she prepared or qualified or in her opinion, deserving for it? No. But it was one of the best things that could have happened to her, she decided. "Getting to do things that I feel like I have to do for myself makes me feel very free."


Well, if she was going to melt and die than he certainly would have been glad he had not said it. Unless she was actually a phoenix and could resurrect herself, which considering all the things... that seemed plausible. Evan didn't particularly think he was anyone exceedingly kind, or special, but by now everyone knew he did not hold himself in that type of a regard. But he knew that the people who cared about him, and whom he most cared about did, and that was really all that mattered. At least, to him. "I think not doing it based on a mirror and from old photos is even more special. If you think about it, a mirror just reflects what you look like in that moment, and what you feel looking at yourself. But a photo? That shows what you look like to someone else, and that's an even more special series of artwork." If she wanted his knut on the subject. "I would love to, anytime." An art studio sounded fun and he would be curious to see how she had changed her space. He was also very open for spending as much time with her too before he was out on the water. "That sounds fun to me. And I don't mind animals." Particularly not cats, though he imagined Padme would think him coming back smelling like another was the ultimate act of betrayal.

He was very pleased to hear she was putting herself first. He often worried about Ash and the fact that she seemed to prioritize others over herself, which while admirable was... not exactly healthy. Bubble baths, journaling and cooking... 8 hours a night! That was all very healthy and he loved that for her. "I'm glad to hear you're doing all that. Merlin knows you could have afforded to be able to sleep more." He grinned at her, taking a sip of his drink. "I'm proud of you. For doing all that."

Dash had a number of people come in and out of his life through the years. It was rare to find one matching him up as a friend, let alone... more? There was a dash of hope, when he heard the magic word. Single.. "Really? How's that possible?" He asked. "You're not that ugly," Slight tease given his cheeky smile. How could that smile drop when he was told he was an alright guy, as well.

Dash then leaned closer to the brown eyes across from him. Maybe to share a secret or just to lower his voice. "I think.. I could take on any dare or demand you throw at me..." But what's the catch? "If you tell me your name," Why just the name? "I have a feeling you're up for some dares," Or would he be proven wrong?

Ah. If only Rafa could have known Dash’s thoughts, he would have immediately recognised the name pun, and he would have highly appreciated it. Puns were brilliant. There was a laugh of pure amusement.That ugly? Is that another reason you’re sitting here flirting with me?” He had only dated ladies but Rafa wasn’t naive; he knew when a guy was flirting with him. Rafa had the suspicion that if he ever let Dash know that his smile was the nicest, Dash’s ego would hit the roof so he kept his mouth shut about that.

He calmly held Dash’s lovely hazel gaze. This close up, they were even more shapely and intriguing. “Yeah?” His grin turned to a smirk. “Be careful what you wish for.” Okay, he owed the other fellow that much. “Rafael. I’ve been known to take on the occasional dare as well. Throw your best one at me.”

Merlin knows you could have afforded to be able to sleep more." He grinned at her, taking a sip of his drink. "I'm proud of you. For doing all that."


Considering the amount of times Ash had 'melted into a puddle and died' around Evan before, she probably WAS immortal. "Mirror self portraits are interesting too, because you can get who you are in the moment when pictures give you... something else. Your picture face. Only obviously I can only use one of those methods. You're right, there are lots of fun things about using pictures." Although it bothered her that she was confined in such a way, and she would have loved to make a self portrait from a mirror if the circumstances were different. "Whenever I want to capture my current emotion, I just make up what I think it would look like on my face," she admitted. "So I'd like to have a huge reference photo album of me making different expressions, so I can pick the right one. But I keep forgetting to take them when I'm feeling something strong!" She shook her head ruefully. "Maybe next time."

Ash brightened at the idea of having him over. She loved having guests. Especially ones that she liked. She just knew he'd love the place and he'd understand why she put up with so many rules from her father when she first moved in. And she could play him piano! And show him the balcony! And the couch! She was looking forward to it. "You'll love my cat. She's the sweetest. And my owl won't attack you. And my rabbit is pretty chill but I think it might be because she used to be a hat."

Yes, yes. Ash was being healthy! It turned out that the combination of Dustin yelling at her and her boyfriend asking gently made Ash a lot better at self-care. And it made her feel very nice. Most of the tiredness and sickness she'd been dealing with were caused by lack of food, lack of sleep, lack of fresh air, and other things that happened when she wasn't taking care of herself. But now she was. And she felt sooo much better. Of course, Ash's standards for being healthy and happy were different from other people's, and she had a long way to go. But she was happy by Ash standards! The happiest she'd ever been(seriously)! "Sleeping potions work wonders," Ash admitted. "I don't sleep all that great on my own but with a potion I can sleep all night and I don't toss and turn or anything. Getting more exercise and activity in my day also helps me sleep. And Minjae bought me a big pillow and a weighted blanket for my birthday. Eating also helps. And bubble baths." Ash paused, thinking. "When I do some things right for myself, other right things happen on their own." She smiled as she ate, loving to hear that someone was proud of her. People seemed to say it a lot now, which was a new thing for her. She'd waited forever and ever for someone to be proud of her but now it was like she had collected interest on all the times she should have heard it as a kid. "What about you, Evan? Are you taking good care of yourself?"

"Mirror self portraits are interesting too, because you can get who you are in the moment when pictures give you... something else. Your picture face. Only obviously I can only use one of those methods. You're right, there are lots of fun things about using pictures." Although it bothered her that she was confined in such a way, and she would have loved to make a self portrait from a mirror if the circumstances were different. "Whenever I want to capture my current emotion, I just make up what I think it would look like on my face," she admitted. "So I'd like to have a huge reference photo album of me making different expressions, so I can pick the right one. But I keep forgetting to take them when I'm feeling something strong!" She shook her head ruefully. "Maybe next time."

Ash brightened at the idea of having him over. She loved having guests. Especially ones that she liked. She just knew he'd love the place and he'd understand why she put up with so many rules from her father when she first moved in. And she could play him piano! And show him the balcony! And the couch! She was looking forward to it. "You'll love my cat. She's the sweetest. And my owl won't attack you. And my rabbit is pretty chill but I think it might be because she used to be a hat."

Yes, yes. Ash was being healthy! It turned out that the combination of Dustin yelling at her and her boyfriend asking gently made Ash a lot better at self-care. And it made her feel very nice. Most of the tiredness and sickness she'd been dealing with were caused by lack of food, lack of sleep, lack of fresh air, and other things that happened when she wasn't taking care of herself. But now she was. And she felt sooo much better. Of course, Ash's standards for being healthy and happy were different from other people's, and she had a long way to go. But she was happy by Ash standards! The happiest she'd ever been(seriously)! "Sleeping potions work wonders," Ash admitted. "I don't sleep all that great on my own but with a potion I can sleep all night and I don't toss and turn or anything. Getting more exercise and activity in my day also helps me sleep. And Minjae bought me a big pillow and a weighted blanket for my birthday. Eating also helps. And bubble baths." Ash paused, thinking. "When I do some things right for myself, other right things happen on their own." She smiled as she ate, loving to hear that someone was proud of her. People seemed to say it a lot now, which was a new thing for her. She'd waited forever and ever for someone to be proud of her but now it was like she had collected interest on all the times she should have heard it as a kid. "What about you, Evan? Are you taking good care of yourself?"


An immortal Ash was something he could deal with, he was sure. Hm, he supposed that was an idea too. Perhaps it was just his own poor self esteem that made him think the portrait in the mirror was entirely uninteresting. It was oftentimes more preferable to know what others thought of him, even if the people he cared to know opinion from were also few. "You're young, i'm sure you'll have plenty of time to still making your picture album of expressions - even if you can't remember to start anytime soon." That was the benefit of having lived perhaps not even a quarter of their lifetimes yet.

He could see her brighten, and even if there had not been a reason to look forward to a visit with her more - he already was. He did enjoy making his friends happy, and Ash was similar to another sister to him. He always prioritized his sisters. And his brother. And... other family too. Hearing her talk of her animals, he laughed softly and raised an eyebrow. "You took the rabbit from Transfiguration home?" He had opted to let his stay behind at school, with whatever hat bunnies stayed there as well. The few times they visited, Padme had not been fond. "How is your cat with others?" He could leave Pads with his parents, but he didn't like to be separated from his familiar either so he figured best to ask.

All of this was pretty much the best news ever and he was very relieved she was doing so well, and healthier. It would have made sense to him that her gross feelings had been relative to not enough food or sleep, but Evan was not the type of friend to badger - he was there simply as support. Or a listening ear if one wanted. "I really am very glad to hear all of this. Sleep is important, exercise and feeding our bodies nutrients they need too. When the insides feel better, sometimes I think our attitude and outsides do too." Which she did look really healthy and like she felt better. At her question... he paused. Was he taking good care of himself? He wasn't doing anything special, or different so far but... he felt okay. So maybe? "I've gotten a couple more tattoos." Was the answer he went with, deciding she would understand that as self care too. "I also visited Noah and spent some time with him. And that was... really nice. " He tended to forget how much he missed his brother, and he'd been introduced to some new people in his life too that it had been nice to meet.

Rafa had the suspicion that if he ever let Dash know that his smile was the nicest, Dash’s ego would hit the roof so he kept his mouth shut about that.

He calmly held Dash’s lovely hazel gaze. This close up, they were even more shapely and intriguing. “Yeah?” His grin turned to a smirk. “Be careful what you wish for.” Okay, he owed the other fellow that much. “Rafael. I’ve been known to take on the occasional dare as well. Throw your best one at me.”

"Rafael... what a cool name," Almost as cool as his own name, from what Dash had been told. And he certainly wouldn't be wrong about his own reaction if he were to hear such compliments. Was that truly the reason he was sitting here flirting, "That depends.. is it working?" He liked teasing even more than flirting. Especially when someone was as receptive and could dish it back as easily. Most were as receptive but quite on the same level with him.

Now it was for his best dare, "You sure you don't have one for me?" He dd ask for one, after all. "How about... you go over to the bar and dance on top for a few seconds," Pretty light one to ask for.

“Thanks. My parents picked it out for me.” Was that a little sarcastic? Oops. A smirk returned but instead of answering, Rafa picked at his food, taking a mouthful and chewing. It was far more satisfying to observe Dash wait in anticipation for an answer. Finally, he responded, neither confirming nor denying, “You tell me.” Ahhh, such games. Rafa likey.

His brain was working furiously. A brilliant idea had just occurred to him. Well, it was brilliant but it could have chaotic consequences if he wasn’t careful how he played things out. “That’s it?” Rafa deadpanned. “Fine, fine. I’ll give you your entertainment in a bit. I do have a dare, now that I think of it. I bet you couldn’t go the entire day pretending to be my boyfriend at my brother’s wedding.” This way, Rafa could get his mother off his back for a bit.

Dash could only snort at Rafael's remark and the redirect. "Maaybe," taking another sip of his drink. He was sitting here almost as giddy as a young boy. Plus the confidence. He knew what he liked and loved to play with what he liked.

That was it? "I mean, I could have you do it in your swim trunks if you'd like," Though that might scar some people or at the least get him kicked out.. Ahem. He was lucky to have not taken a sip just then at his dare as his smile dropped for a moment while blinking. Well, well.. Dash had long since forgotten about him having a problem of sort. Before he could connect the dots on that though. The smile returned though as he looked thoughtfully, "Hmm... and just what would I have to do to be a convincing boyfriend?" Stand by his side? Hold hands? Maybe more? Details had to be made and possibly negotiated. But more importantly, "Sounds like we'd need to go shopping in order for me to match you," Another outing, score.

It was nice to be this sarcastic and playful with someone who didn’t carry feelings/feel insulted. Rafael didn’t press for a clearer answer. Yes or no didn’t matter when he was going to take that "Maaybe’’ as positive anyway. Now that he was certain Dash was into him, Rafa intended to use this to his advantage. It was best to have someone who was attracted to him do this sort of thing. That or he could actually find an overzealous actress.

It was Rafa’s turn to snort. This was followed up by a shrug. “The choice is yours.” The owlkeeper would probably never be allowed back here at the Leaky… would that be worth it? “Please don’t make me regret asking,’’ he remarked with a dramatic sigh. “Just look… boyfriendly?” Rafa didn’t know; this was new territory to him. “Maybe you’re allowed to hold my hand.” Dash would love that, wouldn’t he? Matching? “Talk about taking your new role into stride.” He smirked. “It’ll be a regular, sharp-looking suit. I have a light orange tie. To go with the decor and flowers apparently.”

Ash nodded at Evan's words, hoping he was right. "Sometimes I forget that I have my whole life ahead of me. Sometimes I feel like I have to do everything I've ever wanted to do immediately, right now, and today. But I suppose that's not how it works, and doing that would also be impossible." She smiled. It was a little amusing, when she took a step back and observed herself. What was she in such a rush for? Maybe she was just trying to keep up with the speed of her thoughts.

"Yes, I took him home, and his name is Hat Bunny. Because... I'm sure you understand. I thought I could use another pet for company, you know? I've been feeling like I need company recently, and having a pet to just sit with me and be there is very therapeutic." Scar purring while sitting on her chest often helped her fall asleep, and Hat Bunny was a good companion when she needed to think. He never reacted to her ideas, rational or irrational. He just sat there and was very soft. She even enjoyed the presence of Maggie, no matter how unpleasant the Eagle owl got. Her pets were very beneficial. "Scar is a sweetheart to everyone, including other cats. She's very calm, and very perceptive. Why?"

Ash really did look healthier. She'd put lots more effort into her appearance too, and overall she just had a... happier aura. It was nice to feel so good. "You got more tattoos too! What are they?" Could she see any of them? Evan must have known that the topic of tattoos made Ash very excited. She loved tattoos. "It's always nice to spend time with siblings. Especially if you have a large age gap and haven't met in a while." That was something that she very much understood.

Dash couldn't help chuckling at the idea, knowing full well his addition to the dare would all but be rejected. "Okay, okay, I jest," It had taken this long to get him this trusting, he wasn't going to waste the opportunity to spend more time with Rafael, "I... can do that," Act boyfriend-like, wear the right attire. Check.

Dash briefly wondered if this was all new to Rafael. Having a boyfriend. Did he mix up the signs or maybe he just never dated a guy specifically before? No matter. He had one himself years ago between the other girls. So he could teach a thing or two if needed, "Well, to be convincing we should probably get our story straight or.. not in this case," ahem, brief smile, "How, where, and when we met. I'm sure they'll have plenty of questions for me," Since he had to know more about Rafael, he should probably give him more about himself, "I'm Dash Dreamer, 27, teaches Quill Writing & Reading at Hogsmeade's Primary school, graduated from Wizarding University and Hogwarts.." and just for fun, "and I like long walks on the beach."

Okay then…

They had a deal. Rafa was certain he could actually feel the trepidation evaporate from his cells. “Obrigada,’’ he said in Portuguese. “Thank you.” At least Juniper would stop nagging at him about dating. And if she asked about him getting married? Yeah, he’d not think about that right now. Mothers… He really wanted to shake his head as he thought of his even though he loved her very much.

Did Rafa give out signs? Oh, that early bit of flirting? It actually wasn’t something he did; not with guys, anyway, and he was still trying to figure out why he had done that with Dash. Rafael laughed. “I see what you did there.” He was one hundred percent sure he was straight, okay? At least that’s what he was telling himself right now. “My Ma will. I dunno… we met right here when you decided to invade my space? I’ve heard it’s best to mix lies with a bit of the truth. Works better that way.” There was a shrug as this theory had never been tested by him. Rafa held his index fingers to his temples and closed his eyes. “Storing information,’’ he comically informed Dash in a robot-like voice. He’d been right about Dash being a professor. Teacher. Whatever. “Okay, my turn.’’ His eyes met Dash’s again. “Rafael Lucas Melo. Also 27 years old. The entire family is originally from Peru. I’m an owlkeeper at Eeylops. Graduated from Castelobruxo and WU in Venezuela. Um… I really like pork chops?”

Dash smirked into his drink again, "You may have a point there," with the truth meeting the lie, "Invade your space? More like you grabbed my attention," Who knows if they would've met if he didn't hear him.. well, no use thinking that over. He considered asking about his feelings but that could disrupt their planning. All he knew right now was how adorable Rafael was being, storing information and all. He had some relatives outside of England, which led to vacationing... in the past.

"Peru! What a beauty. I guess you vacation there often or occasionally? I love traveling myself," Well, he used to. Up until he began third-wheeling which became awkward. "I feel honored you're sharing this much with me. That's so cool," Even the pork chops bit."So what else do you like to do outside the gym? I've done the occasional karaoke and a bit of baking," When he felt like being at home, at least. "So if your mum is like mine to ask, how long have we been seeing each other? And why did you hide me out all this time?" He had his own suggestion but this boyfriend would be taking the lead... for now.

It was a little amusing, when she took a step back and observed herself. What was she in such a rush for? Maybe she was just trying to keep up with the speed of her thoughts.

"Yes, I took him home, and his name is Hat Bunny. Because... I'm sure you understand. I thought I could use another pet for company, you know? I've been feeling like I need company recently, and having a pet to just sit with me and be there is very therapeutic." Scar purring while sitting on her chest often helped her fall asleep, and Hat Bunny was a good companion when she needed to think. He never reacted to her ideas, rational or irrational. He just sat there and was very soft. She even enjoyed the presence of Maggie, no matter how unpleasant the Eagle owl got. Her pets were very beneficial. "Scar is a sweetheart to everyone, including other cats. She's very calm, and very perceptive. Why?"

Ash really did look healthier. She'd put lots more effort into her appearance too, and overall she just had a... happier aura. It was nice to feel so good. "You got more tattoos too! What are they?" Could she see any of them? Evan must have known that the topic of tattoos made Ash very excited. She loved tattoos. "It's always nice to spend time with siblings. Especially if you have a large age gap and haven't met in a while." That was something that she very much understood.


He was optimistic that he was right this time around. He had a good track record of being accurate too, so he would add that as weight to his observation there would be a good deal of life left for Ash. But at the same time, he also could see benefits to her way of thinking. He took a sip of his drink as he contemplated his words before speaking. "Not to sound contradictory, but even with a full life ahead - I don't think it's a bad idea to live in the now and do the things you want because you never know if something will stand in your way later." And even if someone was optimistic of a long life to live, accidents happened.

"Pets are the best company and so long as you have adequate space for their needs, I don't think there is anything as too many." Whether it be hat bunnies, owls or cats or even a mix of all or other critters. "I can understand the therapeutic. I think I only started to get over my trauma when my parents let me get Padme." His familiar's existence had helped a lot, between her curling up in bed to keep him company or pawing him awake during night mares. Or even just the necessity of forcing him to explore more of the castle so that she could get her exercise. He might not have moved on from things ever if it hadn't been for her. "If I came over for a bit, I was wondering if you and she would mind if i brought Pads along too. I think she's missing the company of other cats, now that she can't see Ned as often." Ned being Jude's cat.

At the question of what were they, Evan rolled up his sleeve to show his forearm where he now had a geometric shape filled with a monochromatic forest, words scrawled underneath it saying Nature is not a place to visit, it is home. "I have this vision of a full arm sleeve eventually, with different aspects of nature and the world and some quotes scattered throughout." Was it basic? Probably, but it made him happy and he could get different ones through his travels over the next year. "It was definitely really nice to see him. I think I'll try to see some of my cousins too sometime soon, though one is in the States with his wife and the other has new twins and a wife." The Spenley's certainly had a lot of new changes. Cora he saw plenty of given how often he now communicated with Aziel. "Speaking of siblings, your brother started this term didn't he? Have you heard how it's going for him?"

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

SPOILER!!: Is Dash gonna serenade Rafa sometime? xD

He considered asking about his feelings but that could disrupt their planning. All he knew right now was how adorable Rafael was being, storing information and all. He had some relatives outside of England, which led to vacationing... in the past.

"Peru! What a beauty. I guess you vacation there often or occasionally? I love traveling myself," Well, he used to. Up until he began third-wheeling which became awkward. "I feel honored you're sharing this much with me. That's so cool," Even the pork chops bit."So what else do you like to do outside the gym? I've done the occasional karaoke and a bit of baking," When he felt like being at home, at least. "So if your mum is like mine to ask, how long have we been seeing each other? And why did you hide me out all this time?" He had his own suggestion but this boyfriend would be taking the lead... for now.

Ha!

Rafa wasn’t going to be taking the blame this easily, even if his and Dash’s meeting was not something he regretted. “I think you have that wrong because I was talking to myself, not to you.” It wasn’t Rafa’s fault that Dash had bionic hearing. It didn’t even occur to him that the other man’s words could have meant that it was his own physical appearance that had grabbed his attention in the first place.

“I moved here to be closer to my family ast year but I haven’t gone back to Peru since then. Did a bit of traveling before too, mainly to see flora and fauna.” Rafael liked that he and Dash had a mutual love for traveling. Perhaps at some point they could talk about the places they’ve been to and would like to go to. “I haven’t got much of a choice, have I?” His head tilted as he surveyed Dash. Sharing facts about himself wasn’t something he usually did; he was a private person. But admittedly, Rafa enjoyed learning about his present company. “I like to read academic books. Go on. Say it. I’m boring.” He smiled, fully expecting Dash to think that he was boring. “Are you any good at either?” Truthfully, Rafa had already thought of those questions. “Around the start of summer? And because I didn’t want to distract anyone from the wedding planning? Anyway, we didn’t work out, so I’ll tell mum shortly after the wedding, and you’d have had another successful dare under your belt.”

Cora he saw plenty of given how often he now communicated with Aziel. "Speaking of siblings, your brother started this term didn't he? Have you heard how it's going for him?"


Ash's eyes sparkled as she had a thought. She always had thoughts- a million of them- but this one made it all the way to the front of her mind, which is what she meant when she said she had a thought. "If I try and get as much done as I can, then I'll be able to do more things I want later with the rest of my time." She said it quite sincerely, and Evan could expect her to act on about ten whims by the end of the day so she'd have space for more tomorrow. "Honestly, some days I am too tired to get anything done. So I might as well get a lot of things done when I can! But of course, I should still slow down sometimes before I burn out or manage to annoy everyone." Slowing down was hard. But sometimes she had to! And sometimes other people convinced her to. "How do you... take things slowly so often?" She was impressed by Evan's calmness and patience at things and she'd like to learn from it. Or paint it, at least. If it was possible to paint calmness and patience. She bet it was. She bet she could.

She nodded as she listened, quietly understanding what Evan meant. "Having pets makes me feel useful, just having something to take care of. And Scar always knows when I'm upset. She sits on my chest and lets me pet her. It's very good for sleeping." Or at least relaxing. She could always use more of that. "I can't guarantee that Padme and Scar will get along, but I don't know anyone or anything Scar hasn't been able to get along with. So I'd love for you to bring her over and we can introduce them." Maybe they'd be best friends like Ash and Evan were. She wished very intensely.

"Evan!" Ash gasped, making heart eyes at his tattoo. "It's lovely." Not to make her boyfriend jealous, but she had several other loves and one of them was tattoos. Permanent art on the body was incredible, no notes. "I think your vision is great." She really did. Also, she wanted to enable him to get that sleeve.

"I guess we're both having big family changes," Ash said, only realizing after the fact that that could be interpreted in several different ways. "New twins and a wife! Congratulations to your cousin." Evan had a big big family, and yet she hadn't met a Nam she didn't like. "Yes, my middle brother is now a first year Hufflepuff. And from what I've heard, he's having a lot smoother of a time than I did. I think he kind of needed to get away from home, you know? He's never been without his family before, but I think it's just what he needs." She smiled, relaxing more as she talked about him. "I've been told that he's doing just fine and has loads of friends." It made a weight lift off her chest, just knowing that. "I also may have asked some Hufflepuffs to look out for him..."

"That is technically very true. Just remember you'll not be able to do more later if you burn yourself out and just... get tired of doing things too early." Or was that just something he with his limited social battery experienced? But at the same time, he was also very much here for Ash getting to accomplish all the things she wanted from life - even if that meant 10 or even 15 whims a day. But as she continued talking it, it was clear she would be fine and there was no reason for him to worry about her. The question of how he took things slow though took him by surprise and honestly... he didn't have an answer. "I... don't know. It's never a conscious decision. But it's like, when I have a thought - I have to analyze it every way from Sunday before I do anything with it. Sometimes it means I miss opportunities." Particularly when it came to his own feelings - he'd certainly messed a few things up there, but it was of no consequence now.

Pets feeling of use did make sense too, especially with even more so now Evan was responsible for more than himself in the real world. Even if that 'more than' was just his cat. A cat suited him well, though. She always had - and perhaps cats just always would be his thing. He had a hard time seeing himself with any more immediate family than that. "I can't guarantee either from Pads side, but I think it would be fun to try. If not, I can lock her up somewhere because I'm sure she'd be the one on bad behavior." A prickly pear that one was.

He smiled a genuine smile at her excitement, looking at his arm again as well and admiring it. He was very happy with the way it turned out, and was fairly certain he would continue to be as he kept adding to it. "Thank you. Working on this gives me more sense of purpose in my travels too." Which was just something he needed, as silly as that seemed.

He was not one to jump to conclusions, yet that didn't stop an eyebrow raising at her question. He didn't push though, figuring she would share IF she wanted and WHEN she was comfortable. "Thank you, I'll pass that on." Perhaps he should introduce her to Chin-hae then, though he wasn't as bad as Evan liked to make him out, which even he didn't think he was. "Well... that's good to hear, especially that Hogwarts is less crazy than our first few terms." Fingers crossed there was never a recreation of those years. "Your boyfriend is a Hufflepuff too, isn't he?" That had to be helpful at least.

"Your boyfriend is a Hufflepuff too, isn't he?" That had to be helpful at least.


Ash nodded. "It's all about the right balance. And about good judgement. Obviously if I suddenly decide I want a steak sandwich at three in the morning, that's different from suddenly deciding I want to make a really stupid life change at 3 in the morning." One of those was somewhat eccentric, one of those was more than somewhat idiotic. She listened to him talk about how he took things slowly, suppressing a smile at the sudden thought of soothing-alpaca-Evan popping into her head. By the end, she'd decided that their minds just worked very differently, despite both of them being overthinkers. Ash thought that she may be an overthinker-after-the-fact. Evan seemed to be an overthinker-before-the-fact.

"Maybe we can have our cats meet first, and then you can bring Pads over if they seem to be okay with each other?" Then they wouldn't have to deal with any unexpected drama. Ash was proud of herself for thinking ahead. "We can know how it's going to be from a scale of cat-playdate to dire-emergency-that-needs-to-be-prevented." She laughed, not thinking that Scar would ever really hate another cat. And fights took two, didn't they?

"I cannot stress enough how much I love tattoos." She blushed. "I mean, uh, your tattoos especially! I'm not just enabling you to get more because tattoos in general are nice." She absolutely was. Buuuut she did really like his design and thought it looked great.

"It's so good for him. Though I do find myself having doubts whenever I get letters from him. I can't help it, you know? He just seems so settled, and happy, and fine- I guess it's just hard for me to believe that anyone could be like that at Hogwarts. But it's a much nicer place now, true." She worried anyway. Not too much, but a little. She doubted that particular worry would go away. "Yes! My boyfriend is a Hufflepuff! But he always says he's studying when I try and secretly trick him into hanging out with my brother. I think he's caught on. And I think my brother is instantly suspicious of any potential boyfriend." She sighed, then laughed. "He's a funny kid. I think I'm the one protecting him and then I find him looking out for me. It's very sweet. But it also feels very strange." It was strange to have a little brother who acted like a much older one when she was the much older one. She thought she knew why, and it made her sad, so she stopped thinking about it. "I love him so much."

She thought she knew why, and it made her sad, so she stopped thinking about it. "I love him so much."


He smiled at the examples she chose, a small chuckle escaping. "You're right, those are very different things. Although I would hope any time of day and you wouldn't choose a very stupid life change - not if you actually thing it's stupid." Life changes in themselves were fine - the chosen descriptive words could be red or green flags, though. That was what he was finding to be one of the more fun things about friendship - the differences in how their brains worked, what decisions they chose, interests. Similarities were nice too, but he found he celebrated the differences more.

"That is genius idea." A first meet was definitely better, though he wasn't sure where they could have that happen. An idea for later when it was time to act upon the thought, he supposed. "I would hope we would never reach dire but.. it's absolutely better to be a test run." Because yes, a fight may take two - but an injury only took one.

He smiled fondly, taking a sip of his drink before replying. "It's okay, that's one of the things I know about you." Which was why he'd shared his new tattoo to begin with. The time they'd spent on temporary tattoos after learning the charm for creating them had certainly been a fair amount. "I'll take the enabling no matter the motivation."

Another idea he understood completely. Their experiences with Hogwarts had been very different (hopefully) than what her brother's was. But given the trauma they'd endured, it was hard to not be suspicious and fearful for other people still there - especially ones they cared about and no longer were there to protect. Or never been there with them, as it was for her and her brother. "Hopefully it stays that way. He deserves to be able to enjoy his time and relish in the magic." Lisa had gotten a lot of that experience too, and he'd been endlessly glad for it. Not all the Nam's needed to have sleepless nights remembering some of their Hogwarts days. "Is your boyfriend not a social person?" He assumed that's why he would make excuses - though he could understand Brandon's suspicion too. He was like that for his siblings partners too. He wondered if they would be too if he'd ever found someone, and yet given how desperately his sisters seemed to want to set him up with someone - he didn't think that would be the case. "It sounds like you guys are really close."

Oh, for September to come and the Alley to quiet down a bit.

Granted the summer could be fun and energetic, but Septimus had spent enough time at Gringotts to know the goblins could get just as grouchy with all the business flowing through the halls as they could when it was slower. Especially when some of the newer children caused trouble in the vaults. Today he had taken a nice walk through the shops without the hustle and bustle, just keeping a slight eye on the time knowing he didn’t want to be late meeting up with his appointment. Though he was just a tad anxious to see how she reacted to his news.

Stepping through the still open wall, Septimus entered the courtyard. Perhaps outside would be nice given the weather was behaving. He took a quick peek into the Leaky Cauldron to make sure Candela hadn’t beat him to it and inside before taking a seat at one of the tables set out between the bar and Diagon Alley to await his expected companion. The cursebreaker absently gazing around to people-watch the lingering patrons outside.
