Default Private Parlour


If you are in need of a place to hold a meeting or a conference, look no further than The Leaky Cauldron. This Private Parlour has been used in the past for meetings with the Minister of Magic. Ministry members may book this room for meetings or conferences.

Inside, the room is made of dark wood. Several small tables run down the length of the room and many cozy, rolling chairs line it. If fewer people are attending, the table can be shortened for a more personal meeting. The room is eloquent, with tapestries hanging on the wall and portraits of famous wizards and witches line the wall, willing to give their advice if you want it (or if you don't). In each corner sits a suit of armor, regal and rigid.

Unless you have reserved this room, though, you are not permitted to enter. Please direct all inquiries about the use of this room to Phro.

OOC: This is NOT an open RP thread and you MUST have permission from the shopkeeper team before posting here. Failure to do so will result in your posts being deleted and continuing to do so will require further action.

It was a peaceful late afternoon at the Leaky Cauldron, and the private parlor had been set up for the mixer.

The week before, the new owner of the Leaky had gone around to each of the shops in Diagon Alley and dropped off mixer invitations for all of the shopkeeps:

Please wear beach-appropriate clothesóHawaiian shirts, sandals, swimsuits, etc. (but letís keep it PG, pleaseÖ this is still a public place). Expect an array of tropical refreshments and beach-y food! But not sandy food because that would be gross.
She was new, after all, and wanted to get to know all of her quasi-coworkers. And what better way than a party?

Inside the parlor, the usual wall decor has been taken down and illusions have been cast on the four walls to make it seem as though they were truly on a beach. The wall opposite the entrance looked out into the ocean while the wall with the entrance looked out into a tropical jungle, and the ceiling overhead shows a blue sky and the bright sun. The weather in the room reflects the illusionóhot, but with a nice sea breeze. However, the walls are still there; please be mindful not to walk into them. The tables are set with arrangements of different tropical fruitsópineapples, mangos, papayas, kiwis, starfruit and the likeóand one has a stereo playing a mix of instrumental tropical music. Some tables at the back have been pushed together; they hold plates, cups, self-refilling platters of food (shrimp kebabs, smoked ham with pineapple, sweet chili wings, calamari) and self-refilling pitchers of drinks (water, lemonade, fruit punch, piŮa colada). The floor is covered with sand, but if you were to dig down an inch or two you would hit the hardwood floor. There are some beach chairs set up facing the wall with the ocean if you wish to relax and watch the waves roll in.

So, please, come in, eat all the food you want and have some fun!

Phro was excited for guests to start rolling in. She hoped they would roll in, at least. She really really wanted to get to know everyoneóespecially Vitani, seeing as she was a Paradise frequent, at this point.

She loved what she had done with the parloróthe beach was her absolute favorite place to be, so this was the perfect setup! The beach was always fun and exciting and, well... even though they might not be able to actually swim in the water, it still had the atmosphere nonetheless! And she thought that the food setup that she had arranged was super appropriate! It was a very nicely done theme for how soon she had planned it and thrown it together!

Phro stood in the middle of the room, facing the entrance to the parlor. She wore sandals, shorts and a tube top with skulls and crossbones printed all over it. She had a black shawl thrown across her shoulders and a large sun hat on her head. Her various piercings glinted in the sun. Was this a good place to stand? Was this weird for when guests arrived? Maybe she should sit. But then would that make her a bad hostess?

Print shirts and a beach bohemian vibe? ZachaŽl was already liking one of the newest additions to the Alley on this premise alone. Tack on that the beach and general tropical getaways were his absolute favorite escapes, and he still needed to finalize that long overdue trip with Dieter, and the Owl Post owner was in very good spirits as he arrived at the Leaky Cauldron with Furmgoat perched on his shoulder. There was, of course, a little towel draped over it and beneath the little tawny owl's talons to protect the fabric of his shirt that was a pleasant accent to his navy shorts. Not too loud and not mixing too many prints. Not even Sophia could fuss at him for his 'questionable' fashion choices.

ZachaŽl could not wait to see what Zeke had put himself in.

The short sleeves showing off his alchemy symbol tattoos, his arms flexed a bit as he pushed open the door to the private parlor while balancing the watermelon fruit salad he had hand carved from an actual hollowed out watermelon to look like a shark and then filled back up with little squares of watermelon and other fruits. His partner had suggested he not arrive empty handed and that Furmgoat did not count. His whittling kit had come in handy, though he felt it almost sacrilegious after the fact that he had used it on fruit. A thorough sterilizing of the tools had set his mind at ease, however.

"Hello," he greeted the woman with a friendly smile and a toss of his curls, curls that had finally recuperated from their horrendous ordeal beneath the head of that ice cream bear costume. There was a certain familiarity with her that he count not place, though he presumed that meant they were at Hogwarts together at some point. The wizarding world felt large, but it was not nearly large enough at times. "ZachaŽl Lufkin. I'm the current owner over at the Owl Post and this is Furmgoat."

Flip, flop, flip, flop, flip, flop.

These shoes needed to burn. Zeke didn't tend to mess around with fire, it felt almost like a betrayal to the instruments he crafted and worked with, but he was willing to start an impromptu bonfire right this second and be free of these things forever. Vanishing was also an option, but less of a statement.

Mathias had planned the outfit for him. Zeke had been planning to loophole the dress code somewhat, had something more in the vein of Barbecue Dad, but his husband had cottoned on and taken over. Arriving in flip flops, a straw trilby, striped tank top, and luridly patterned board shorts, Zeke was glad for the warmth of the parlour; the short walk here had almost been more chilly than embarrassing, even if Mathias' eye for style left something to be desired.

"Hello, hello," he greeted those already present, the new owner of the Leaky Cauldron, and ZachaŽl. "We meet again." And again and again and again. Zeke set his contribution to the party with the others - a single, whole pineapple, very original - and took a good look around at the decor.

The first thing Phro noticed was the owl. Her mouth made an "O" as the nicely dressed man, whose name she learned was ZachaŽl, entered. She wanted to pet the heck outta that owl. But she should probably make a good first impression first. "Hi there! I'm Euphrosyne Texeira, but that's kinda a mouthful, so you can just call me Phro. Nice to meet you, ZachaŽl and Furmgoat." She smiled extra big at the owl. However, she also felt like she knew this man from somewhere... she felt that way even before now, pretty much anytime she had been to the Owl Post. Shoving that aside for now, Phro reached out to take the watermelon. "Awh, you really didn't have to bring anything, but thanks!" She skipped as she brought the watermelon over to the table with the food on it, setting it down. With her back turned to ZachaŽl, she looked down at her palm and started writing his name on her palm. She had heard if you write someone's name on your palm three times then you won't forget it, but... then she realized something. "So, hey.... how do you spell your name?"

Right after she asked this, the door opened again as another guest walked in. She smiled again, but it was a bit tighter than the lastóif people kept pouring in without her memorizing names first then she might get confused about who's who and that would be super embarrassing. "Hello! I'm Euphrosyne, new owner of the Leaky. But, please, call me Phro!" Another person who brought food! ...it was definitely just an uncarved pineapple, but...hey, she hadn't asked for anything in the first place, and it was on theme! Phro knew that she knew this one, too, but she didn't know from where. Not even the store he worked at... but they seemed to know each other...

Phro hummed as she put her fingers to her temples, leaning slowly from side to side. She was thinking, and thinking was kinda boring, so this was her thinking stance to make it less boring. She finished humming and pointed her fingers upwards. Maybe... "Hey, is there any chance you two went to Hogwarts in the eighties?"

A Poop * k8 *

Randy had a bowl of jello.

He was trying to wiggle it as he toddled over to the Leaky for this little rendezvous that he had pretty stoked for. He also had a limbo broom tied to his back haphazardly because what was a party without a LITTTTTLE LIMBOOOOOOO???????

"Whoah, whoah ~ WHOAH!" Randy exclaimed as he entered the parlour. "Quit making a fellow feel OLD as dirt, all right?" Randy's voice boomed. It boomed wherever he went, and he couldn't help it, and he wished it wouldn't boom in such a small space, BUT ALAS. "I brought my ex wife's special jello and a limbo broom. Vastly - and intricately - different from a regular broom, I can assure you."

He held the jello bowl over his head and BOOOOOWED deeply to the hostess whose name he absolutely didn't know in a dramatic manner, as if he were offering her a sacrifice or something. The jello was all swirly and in different colors, and it totally went with the vibes.

He hadn't bought WWW all that long ago, and he managed to make his rounds and introduce himself when he had first taken over, but he knew no one's names. That would change today, and they would ALL know Randy after this, he was sure. "I'm Randy Stavros, the ole' jokester shop guy. Wheezes!" he jazzed-hands next to his face and smiled. "I usually cartwheel into new groups of people, but I had jello." Jello made it hard to cartwheel anywhere if you didn't trust said jello....and he didn't trust anything he had asked his ex to last-minute make for him. She had probably made it runny on purpose!

New blood in the Alley was always nice. Elizabeth had always thought so, even before she had actually run a shop there. New faces were nice, new stories. There might have been a bit of a focus on the stories, but she was a writer at heart. Not to mention there were all manner of new stories due to everything that had gone on. Wars, dressing up as an ice cream bear for Leon and FortescuesÖ yes, she rather expected there might be some new titles being published that she could stock. Hopefully. Nothing against the books that had been there for years.

The petite blonde had made her way over once sheíd closed up shop. It wouldnít do to have a customer come into the bookshop when she wasnít there. The cats hardly were able to man the shop, and Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer were in fact the only ones available to help customers had they arrived. Most of her impromptu assistants were back at school, after all. Besides, she truly thought the idea of a mixer was a nice idea.

Even if she somewhat felt like an elder stateswoman of the Alley at the moment, even moreso than the joke shop keeper who had made a point of mentioning it. ďHello all,Ē she said upon arrival, looping a strand of hair behind her ear. ďThis reminds me of when I lived in California.Ē What seemed like forever ago by now.

Camilo wouldn't mind wearing beach-appropriate clothes all year long. They were comfortable and reminded him of all the beautiful seaside destinations he had the pleasure to visit. He had never worn a Hawaiian shirt, sunglasses and sandals to work before, as the outfit was considered unprofessional for a broom developer, a teacher, and pretty much every job in both magical and non-magical worlds. Except this new job of his. He still felt a little uncertain about his big transition to Diagon Alley, but the mixer invitation made him feel loads better. After all, his love of socialising was a big motivator behind his decision to move here in the first place.

A tray of wraps levitated before him, Aguilar pushed open the door and entered the private parlour of the Leaky Cauldron. Upon noticing the beach-themed wall decor, he grinned and lowered his sunglasses to take a better look around. Very nicely done! After another glance around the room, he turned his attention to the people already present. "Hi, hello! I'm Camilo Aguilar, new owner of Quality Quidditch Supplies. I don't sell limbo brooms though, so Randy must have bought his from another Quality Supplies shop!" he chuckled and nodded at the Wheezes wizard as he moved to set down his tray at the food table.

This already looked fun!

1/2 of Roston ~ Rhibear ~ Madam Solo ~ Pirate Princess ~ Gryffinclaw ~ Just a doll

Vitani sauntered into the private parlor, wearing an orange top, brightly patterned trousers, sunglasses, and a pair of strappy high-heeled sandals. She'd accessorized the outfit with a coordinating statement necklace and bangles. Despite her diminutive stature, she intended to strike an eye-catching presence. Surveying the decor with a discerning eye, she smiled to herself. Was it tooting her own horn to think her shop might've inspired it? "Hello, all," she greeted, nodding in acknowledgement to each person in turn as she made her way across the room. "Hi! I love what you've done with the place," she said to the hostess (Phro).

Not one to be outdone, Vitani brought not one but two dishes to this little get-together - one food and one drink, both carefully balanced on a tray shaped like a hibiscus flower. "This is chicken yassa," she said, setting the dish on the table with the others, "fire-grilled chicken marinated in lime juice, vinegar, peanut oil, and onions and served over rice. And this -" She set down a pitcher full of dark pink liquid. "-is bissap, a traditional Senegalese drink made with hibiscus flowers, mint, and orange blossom."

Noticing two unfamiliar faces (Randy and Camilo), she introduced herself, "I'm Vitani Kama, owner of Paradise Piercings and Tattoos."

Victoria was so relieved to be out of her shop and going to see the other shop owners. She had a blast at the ice cream party, but she wasn't so sure she would ever wear that stinky, slimy, bear costume ever again. Her long flowy dress made her feel like she was at the beach, and everything inside the room screamed of her summer trips to the beaches of Florida. A small smile spread across her face at the thought of her summers in the sun. Oh how she missed that, the drab London weather wasn't bad, it just wasn't her true home.

Adding a smile back to her face she glanced around noticing the new faces, "hey ya'll." Raising the watermelon in her hands, "brought watermelon drink. It's so good." Wait did she hear someone mention California? Oh she missed California's dry heat sometimes, but that was besides the point. "I'm Victoria Martin from Malkin's. Hi everyone." she'd make it a point to go around and get individually introduced to everyone after she set down this watermelon.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

Lelia's prefered attire were robes. But she would make an exception for this special occasion. Wearing a two-piece dress that was green with pink flowers and sunglasses on top of her blonde hair, Lelia pushed open the door to the private parlour at the leaky cauldron.

And then stopped.

"Oh shoot!" was the first thing she said rather than a greeting. "I forgot to bring the fruit skewers" they were still in a cooled off area in the shop. "But I see that we have food enough" she stepped further inside the room and thought about how she'd rather share the fruit with her own family. "I'll make sure to give everyone something later!" and she was going to keep true to these words.

"It's a pleasure to meet you all! My name is Lelia Fernsby and I take care of the apothecary" She was certain she knew some of them from during their school years at Hogwarts but that was some time ago.

The Gay Agendaô< >Homiesexual uwu

A lot of her questions were getting interrupted. And there were a lot of people coming into the parlor. She smiled at everyone who was coming in, but in the back of her mind she was freaking out because how would she memorize all these names? Writing them on her palm would take soooooo looooong. And with introductions having to be done, food needing to be set, conversations to be had, impressions to make.... there was no time. Time to stumble through this as best she could.

First up was Randy, who was definitely a character. Phro loved characters. A grin spread wide over her features as she forgot all about talking with ZachaŽl and the other man who she now was pretty sure was from Ollivander'sósorry boys, but there was jello in her face. She took the platter from him and bowed just as deeply. "Well, thank you very much Randy. I hope your ex-wife doesn't have any hard feelings, or else we would have to throw the jello out," she chuckled half-jokingly. She glided over to the food tables and set it down. "And I would love to see your cartwheel later," she called over her shoulder. She could see why Randy had bought Weasley's Wizard Wheezes. It suited him very well. "Please, set up the limbo broom somewhere! We can totally have a limbo competition later!"

Before she could introduce herself, the first lady (Elizabeth) of the night entered the parlor. Phro greeted her with a smile. "Hi! Welcome to the mixer. I've always wanted to visit California, it seems so prettyó"

And then there was Camilo at the door, and she flounced over to greet him as well. "Welcome in! Thanks for the wraps. I think that limbo brooms would be something good to add to the stock," she giggled. Flying had never been Phro's thing, so you probably wouldn't catch her dead in Camilo's shop, but it was good to get to meet him.

As the door opened again, Phro's eyes lit up. Just the person she wanted to see! "Vitani! Hi!" Phro wasn't sure if Vitani knew her name, but Phro sure as hell knew hers. One of the only people here she could say that about, sadly. "Thanks! I figured that you would enjoy it out of everyone." Phro grinned, then eyed the food Vitani described. "Merlin, that sounds so good. I can't wait to try it!" Phro did a little dance. She loved trying new food.

The door swung open again and in walked Victoria. Phro went over and gave her another bright smile. "Welcome welcome welcome! Nice to meet you. I can set that down for you." Phro reached out for the watermelon, bringing it over to the refreshments table. Being a hostess was a lot fo work, wasn't it? She'd given up on introducing herself individually to every guest who came in.

After she set down the watermelon the door opened yet again. This time it was Leila from the apothecary. Phro waved a hand dismissively. "Don't even worry about it, there's plenty here. I'm glad that you could make it in! It's very nice to meet you."

Okay, now that there was a lull in the entrances... Phro pulled up a chair in front of the food tables, then climbed up on it so she was standing tall. "Hi there, everyone! Thanks for coming! I'm Euphrosyne Texeira, new owner of the Leaky, but you can just call me Phro. I set up this mixer so we could all get to know each other, since we're working in such close proximity every day. Thanks again to those of you who brought some food! I really appreciate it. For those of you who didn't, don't worry about it! I didn't ask for any, so it's no biggie! However, you will be paying in blood," Phro said, smile still plastered on her face. Her hair turned a fiery red and she held up her hand, extending her fingernails into sharp claws. She let that sink in for a moment before she exclaimed, "Kidding!" She changed her hair and fingernails back to normal. "Please, mingle, eat and have fun! Thanks again for coming!" Phro climbed down off the chair, thinking she had given a nice, hostess-y speech. Now, where was that bissap?

Pippa was running late for the mixer--she'd been waiting for the last batch of cookies to come out of the oven. The batch she'd had to make at the last minute to replace the batch eaten by her goat, Bruno. But now here she was, bursting through the door with a large platter of cookies in her hands and a colorful parrot on her shoulder. She was a tiny woman with flaming red hair and wearing a brightly colored bathing suit covered by a sarong-like skirt. She was also wearing what looked like a pirate hat.

"Hi, everybody, sorry I'm late! I was waiting for these cookies--they're sand tarts (ha ha!), not really made of sand, of course. Anyway, I'm Pippa Weatherbee, just moved into the Magical Menagerie, and this is Barnaby." She gestured toward the parrot with her head as she laid the platter of cookies down on the table with the other food.

Oh.

Oh.

OOOOOOOOOOH.

It was better than ZachaŽl could have imagined and the board shorts were the piŤce de rťsistance. In fact, he was quite sure he had some trousers in a similar pattern. And a tie. "That print is fetching on you," ZachaŽl greeted his friend with a friendly pat on the back and his voice completely devoid of sarcasm. He truly did like the print. "You ought to wear prints more often."

Grabbing himself and Zeke a beverage, cute and festive little umbrellas included and an absolute must, ZachaŽl was stirring his around and enjoying the pleasant sound of ice clink and clank against the glass when the woman of the hour herself dipped into conversation. "Phro, it truly is a pleasure to meet you. And my sincerest sentiments when I say, welcome to Diagon Alley." As a business woman and not a patron. "Oh, it's Z-A-C-H-A-ň-L. Those two cute little dots over the E." He gave his little fruit carving another proud glance. "It is nothing and was rather fun to expand my craft to fruit. It was a first attempt." The rest was simply a matter of dropping fruit into the hollowed out watermelon - hardly as impressive as the spread she had here.

Oof. Did she have to ask the question like that? ZachaŽl suddenly took a deep sip from his drink and passed THAT answer over to Zeke. He could not admit to his age and the increased chance of waking up one morning to find a grey hair if he had juice in his mouth. Or a snack.

And then his drink was ALL over his front when a rather boisterous gentleman entered the private parlor...ironically speaking the Owl Post's owner's thoughts aloud. Just...not as loudly as the man would have said them himself. Thank Merlin the tray of jello had spared them from further catastrophe. Furmgoat also had not taken kindly to the noise, though it was more the juice being flung into the owl's face, and had taken off the man's shoulder's to perch elsewhere - on top of the curtain rod - looking incredibly hot and bothered.

He would pass on the jello. And perhaps make a hard pass on visiting Randy Stavros' establishment. Though the joke shop never had been the top of his priority list to begin with.

"ZachaŽl Lufkin, Owl Post and..." He glanced around for his own, who gave him a nasty sort of look and clearly did not want attention cast on them. "...and...excuse me...I must tend to my shirt."

Moving across the room, ZachaŽl offered Elizabeth a cordial sort of smile and was too busy retrieving his wand to greet the new owner of Quidditch Quality Supplies - a store he used to frequent more in his youth than now ... and for the sole purpose of buying a few calendars and select magazines for recreational purposes.

Vitani was speaking his language with those prints and he offered her a small smile before he began administering a couple of cleaning charms to his shirt. His shirt had been spared, but there was still an unpleasant stickiness to his skin from the sugary concoction. As if he needed a reminder as to why he did not typically indulge in these sorts of drinks. Unbuttoning his shirt a bit more, ZachaŽl grabbed a couple of napkins and wetted them before dabbing his chest to clean it. He would be smelling like pineapple the rest of the day, but he supposed there were worse thing.

Offering another smile to Victoria as she entered, ZachaŽl was reminded that he wanted to see her for a fitting for a new suit and a couple of dress robes - and he had already found the fabrics for them as well. He would have asked Sophia for help, but he did not wish to torture her with his print choices (aka...he did not want to put up with her passive aggressive but cute commentary). Later though, he ought to greet the new additions to the Alley before getting into his personal affairs.

Making his way over to the new Slugs and Jiggers mistress, neglecting to rebutton his shirt, he offered his hand to her in greeting. "ZachaŽl Lufin of the Owl Post," he smiled...just as one more person entered. Late. His nose was twitching in disapproval and he was close to writing the woman off already for a poor first impression (lateness was not something ZachaŽl tolerated) when he noticed the beautiful creature on her shoulder. "Is that...a red-masked parakeet?" he inquired in a lovestruck daze as he pointed to the bird on the red head's shoulder. "Also known as the cherry-headed conure...native to southwestern regions Ecuador and up to northwestern regions of Peru?" He was already offering his finger to the little bird with a tenderness that one would expect from someone lovestruck to have.

If Renner was running late, he tried not to let it show. It wasn't his style to be late. In fact he preferred to be early whenever possible but sometimes things came up. He wasn't going to place any fingers but he was sure he knew what happened when he stepped out his kitchen for moment earlier that morning and returned to a chocolate explosion. Literally, chocolate everywhere. Needless to say, he wasn't thrilled but these things tend to happen at times when children are involved. So a clean-up had to happen of not only the kitchen but of said children and he had to start over again with the chocolate making.

He was here now though. There had even been an attempt to dress like he was headed out for a day at the beach. His shirt of choice was an Aloha style red one with white flowers and white shorts to match. Sandals completed the outfit cause anything else wouldn't have worked for him. Long crazy dark locks of hair were left falling about his shoulders where his crow Raven was currently perched.

Pushing the door to the parlour open, Ren stepped inside and was instantly met with a sight to behold. Well wasn't this place something! "Hello, everyone," he greeted them all with a grin and a nod of his head. "Renner Thanathos the new owner of Sugarplum's Sweet Shop. I hope everyone likes chocolate." He had brought two trays full of various flavors of chocolates all beach themed of course. Some shaped like sea shells and others shaped like differed underwater creatures.

Pippa turned as she heard someone asking about her parrot and indulgently observed the man holding out his finger with undisguised admiration (as who would not?) toward her parrot.

Barnaby cocked his head back and forth, scrutinizing this stranger with first one eye, then the other, before looking back to Pippa for a moment. He then processed with stately steps onto the man's waiting finger, looked him in the eye again, and said "Ahoy, matey!"

Pippa continued to smile contentedly at the scene--Barnaby had already made a friend here! "Yes, it is, how clever of you to identify him! He was my father's parrot, and after Papa died, he became mine. His name's Barnaby. I thought he would fit in well with the tropical theme."

Weasley's Wizard Wheezes

A Poop * k8 *

Ain't no party like a RANDALL PARTY AND A RANDALL PARTY DON'T STOP.

Was he shaking from excitement? Yes. Was he wishing there was music? YES. was there music? If so, Randy was too excited to notice

A blonde woman who had apparently lived in California made her way in, and Randy smiled and waved. "Randy Stavros, pleased to meet you." Or should he wait for introductions until everyone got here? Maybe that was the way to go..

OR - AND HEAR HIM OUT - if he introduced himself singularly EACH TIME someone came in, he'd have said his name SO MANY times, that everyone who heard minus the last person who came in would SO KNOW HIS NAME. Sounded like a game plan! *insert thumbs up emoji here*

Ha Quidditch bloke had JOKES did he? Not upping the JOKE GuY, WaS hE?! "Oh, I don't know that a Quidditch broom would make a good limbo broom. Or vice versa. Who knows. My limbo brooms tend to have tricks up their bristles," and he winked, wiggling his eyebrows. He gave his hands a loud BOOMING CLAP, and the limbo broom sprung to action, floating about six feet above the ground in the middle of the room. If anyone had been in its way, well...they were probably whacked. SORREH. "I'm Randy Stavros, Wheezes guy!" he tacked on to the end of that.

"RANDY STAVROS, WHEEZES," he said as he introduced, again, to the tattoo woman. "Your dish sounds fabulous, milady! Wonderful!" he grinned and nodded enthusiastically and wondered when they'd get to eat said dish. His stomach was yodeling at the mention of food at this point.

A Victoria and Lelia entered the chat, and Randy wiped the grin off his face at Lelia. "You can't show up to a party without a dish! Surely you read the invitation, ma'am?! You must go back at once and get it!" he put his hands on his hips in an outraged fashion before BREAKING into loud laughter. Like, the kind of laughter that fills the room no matter how big said room was. "I jest, I jest. RANDY STAVROS. Wheezes," he smiled as he shook both their hands. He noted Victoria said 'y'all' and wondered if she was a Yankee.

The woman with a plan, aka the woman with the Leaky, seemed like someone he could get along with. Though, Randy got along with everyone. People didn't necessarily get along with HIM, but eh. "Oh, it's set up, my friend, and it doesn't want to move from the MIDDLE Of the room, so we'll have to make do!" he chortled, running a hang through his formerly-groomed-but-now-tangled beard. "And nahhh. The ex and I have a friendship. We have kids together, so... no need to be enemies." It made things easier to be friendly.

PARROT?

DID EVERYONE SEE THE PARROT? Randy waved at the parrot, and bowed deeply at it. "Barnaby, m'boy! I am Randy Stavros, Wheezes!" he smiled as he stood up straight again and nodded at B's handler. "Randy Stavros. Wheezes!" He wondered if the parrot would let people pet him, and if so, he would be trying to make friends with a parrot later. He'd always wanted to meet a parrot up close and personal. Did the parrot swear??!?!?! Was his top question. HA!

WAIT THERE WAS ANOTHER BIRD HERE. An OWL. His jello...had scared the owl. Or had his voice? Or the drink the man had....spilled? Thrown? Randy didn't notice. "ZachaŽl! Wonderful name by the way! Where'd your friend go?!" he whipped around in every direction. Would a parrot get along with an owl?! Time would tell!

And the man with the chocolate arrived! He wanted to joke about being ALLERGIC to chocolate, but allergies were something people didn't appreciate jokes about, he had found....through the years. "Wonderful! I'm Rand Stavros." Had he said his name enough for it to sink in around the room???? Yet????

She'd given up on introducing herself individually to every guest who came in.
Victoria smiled at Phro, "Oh thank you. You're too kind love." That was the one word or turn of phrase that she really liked and had started using since moving to London--love. It was so informal yet formal at the same time. She loved using it. Teehee. "You're doing a great job here." She waived her hand around in the air motioning for the party and hosting. It was hard being the entertainer.

Victoria smiled wider at ZachaŽl and gave him a small wave, she'd have to go over and talk to him after she made rounds introducing herself to the new faces. He looked like he had something he needed to spill to her, was it secrets or was it something involving her amazing skills with fabric. She'd just have to track him down and find out.

Someone mentioned chocolate and her face turned toward the door. She loved sweets and hadn't been down to Sugarplums in a while, it had been a bit of a challenge to get everything in order again after her back room was terrorized and the Hogwarts kids coming back during the summer. "Love chocolate." She muttered under her breath smiling at Renner making a note to stop by later this week.

Her eyes had tracked Randy moving about the room being a bit loud, but mostly eccentric and a bit funny. Her smile felt wider as she was trying to hold back her laughter. "Victoria Martin." Oh he was a laugher. Wait did he notice her accent, she thought that she had lost most of it.... apparently not.

She was a tiny woman with flaming red hair and wearing a brightly colored bathing suit covered by a sarong-like skirt. She was also wearing what looked like a pirate hat.

"Hi, everybody, sorry I'm late! I was waiting for these cookies--they're sand tarts (ha ha!), not really made of sand, of course. Anyway, I'm Pippa Weatherbee, just moved into the Magical Menagerie, and this is Barnaby." She gestured toward the parrot with her head as she laid the platter of cookies down on the table with the other food.
Phro smiled at yet another guest who arrived. "Hi, welcome in! I'm Euphrosyne, new owner of the Leaky, but I just go by Phro! Thanks for the cookies, I hope you have fun!"

Phro smiled againóapparently hostessing required so much smiling that your mouth hurtóand nodded. "Thank you very much, I'm excited to be here! I just hope that it stays that way," she trailed off, half-jokingly. She could sometimes be a bit... wishy-washy when it came to commitments. But she promised herself that she would see this through! New chapters! New beginnings! And it's what she wanted in the moment that she accepted the position. She took note of how the name was spelled, but she figured it would now be too late to start writing people's names on her hand... it would be very obvious and very strange.

Another new person! So many new people! Was Phro regretting this mixer? Maybe! But here she was! With all these new people that she might forget the names of! And a surprising amount of birds! "Hi there! I'm Phro, owner of the Leaky. I'll take those chocolates and set them out. They look great!" They did look really good, actually. You would never have guessed that children ruined the first batch. Phro scooped up the tray from him and started her walk over to the food tables. "Please help yourself to some food and have some fun!"

There was totally music, Randy. It was some instrumental tropical music Phro set up on a stereo on one of the tables. Nothing super fancy because beaches weren't for being fancy.

Phro laughed a little bit. "Oh, the middle of the room, how fun!" She hoped that it wouldn't be getting in the way of anyone too much, but they could definitely have a limbo tournament once the mixer really got going! She nodded understandingly, even though she had never been in a serious long-term relationship and never knew if she would, but knew she would never have kids. Never. "Well, I'm glad that we don't have to worry about the jello being poisoned, then!" she joked.

Phro smiled appreciatively. "Ah, thanks, I really tried. I'm glad I was able to pull the beach illusion off." She looked over the walls with her hands on her hips. It did look really good, didn't it?

She gave Victoria a smile and a nod before heading over to the food table and grabbing a plate. She piled it high wit food, then poured herself some of that bissap that Vitani brought, then headed over to one of the beach chairs. She sat in it and sighed, taking a moment to recollect herself. Hosting a party was kinda hard, wasn't it? She just wanted to make sure everyone was having a good time, honestly. But chilling out and watching the ocean with a big plate of good food was much more her speed.

"Hi, Phro!" Pippa called back. "Don't mention it." Pippa smiled at all the new people she was meeting--and people were admiring Barnaby right and left, too--the new arrival Randy, and ZachaŽl, who still had Barnaby perched on his finger. Which was nice, but it was of course going to the bird's head, as usual. He'd gotten so cocky he'd started speaking, too. Pippa hoped he wouldn't start swearing...

Pippa caught Phro's comment and said, "Oh, it looks great! Just like the seaside, even the smell of it!" Pippa inhaled the smell of salt air, smiling as she remembered all the good times with her father.
