Default Pub Seating


Here at the Leaky Cauldron things can get pretty busy, and, for Phro, this is exactly the case. For this purpose, she kept he changes made by Louisa so that customers may come to the counter to place their orders, which keeps the chaos down and keeps things less hectic for the busy workers and their customers.

In the center of the room sits the baby of the Leaky Cauldron - baby grand piano that is. It is not unusual to enter the Leaky Cauldron and see costumers playing away at the piano. However, this piano is widely special, even for the Wizarding World. Years ago, Ryoma Shiradou, the former owner, built it by hand and therefore as one plays each key the ivory gives off a little puff of colored smoke that rises up into the air and form shapes that begin to tell a story to the music.

Off to the side of the room, a cozy fireplace and seating area can be found for those looking to relax a bit before heading off to the busy shops of Diagon Alley. At various times throughout the day, Phro will come by and give Tarot card readings.

OOC: The piano is free for all to use so have fun with that and enjoy yourself. Also, please remember that the shopkeeper does NOT take orders at the tables. Due to the Leaky Cauldron being unmanned at the moment, simply assume that your character placed their order at the Bar and Service Counter.

And a very IMPORTANT warning. Please please PLEASE make sure you have read all SS rules - especially those involving drinking. There will be a zero tolerance policy in regards to this rule.

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

Daichi had finished his work at the Ministry of Magic quicker than he had expected and was therefore ten minutes early for his meeting with Victor. Still dressed in his suit, the man took off his tie to make himself feel more comfortable and put it in the sleeve of his coat before hanging it on the coat rack. With a glass of cherry in his hand that he had ordered at the bar and service counter, Daichi walked over to an empty table near the door and placed the glass on the surface of the table before he took a seat. Having only met the other man very briefly the former Slytherin did of course not know what his preferred drink was so he had only ordered for himself. Taking a small sip from his glass of cherry, he looked down at his watch before looking over at the entrance door.

Victor had really wanted to bring Lobo with him. Ever since the night he had gone to Hogwarts to help fight, his beloved canine companion had been practically attached to his hip and the separation anxiety between owner and pup was very very real. Even when he left home to go to the Stemp House, a routine she was very accustomed to, she whimpered and whined with the most forlorn kind of expression that he had found himself arriving late some days just to give his dog a little more attention to soothe her. He supposed the eyepatch he wore over his left eye was a constant reminder of what almost had been...and not just for Lobo, but Minerva as well.

And all those kids.

The irony being that he hardly dwelled on what could have happened to HIM. It was entirely about the greater picture. His eye, and probably his eyesight, were a small and humble sacrifice compared to how very much the world could have turned upside down if things played out differently.

In any case, Lobo was back home with Minerva (and Keats who refused to let his feline presence be ignored) and his shift at the Stemp House not beginning until the evening, and Victor was now arriving at the Leaky Cauldron with his attention entirely drawn on the tables to see if Daichi had arrived first. Which...he assumed was the case. Lobo had been clingy, okay?

Spotting him, Victor lifted his hand in greeting and nodded his head as well before making his way over to him. Yikes. A suit. That was...well...Victor still only owned one pair of dress shoes (for formal occassions) and one pair of closed toe shoes (for those strenuous hikes) and the rest of the time he was either barefoot or in sandals. SO.

"Daichi," he greeted warmly, his hand extended for a shake which he had ever intention of turning into a one armed hug upon contact. "It is good to see you in this setting. You look well."

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

The former Slytherin looked in the direction of the door every time it opened up and costumers entered the pub. He hoped that Victor was not the type to leave someone waiting for a long time but just as the thought crossed his mind he saw a man lifting his hand in his direction.

Perhaps it was the fact that he had been a little busy on the battle field and recovering in the Great Hall and later St.Mungo’s hospital that his memory of what Victor looked liked was a bit different in his mind than what it was in person but he could have sworn that he had did not had a eyepatch back then? Or maybe he had and his memory was still jumbled up.


He lifted his arm up as a sign that he had seen him and then went to roll up the sleeves of his black dress shirt, a tattoo in the shape of a feather that slowly changed color every couple of minutes revealed itself on his forearm as he did so. ”It is certainly better to meet each other in this setting” he answered back as he took the hand for a shake and his gaze automatically went to the eyepatch but he asked nothing about it just yet. Perhaps an opportunity presented itself later in the conversation and he could ease the question in carefully without sounding rude.

Daichi smiled, one that reached his eyes.”I am well. Still recovering but i got back to work fairly quickly” he answered. ”I did not know what you drink so i only ordered for myself”

Default Tally!
*randomly tagged* Norbert(a)

Surrounded by papers and with a quill scratching away at a notebook, Conley was trying to get a little bit more work in before Tally joined him. With a one year old at home who had learned to walk (and chase the dog around) it was hard to get much done once he made it home. In all honesty, he didn't really want to work when he got home anymore. Home was for family and enjoying his life. Work was for work. He was still struggling with trying to find the time/balance for friends - which was why he was here at the Leaky. They really needed to figure out a semi-regular meet-up schedule.

He had gone ahead and ordered a pot of tea with two cups. He had been greatly tempted to order something stronger, but the afternoon was still young and he still had a lot of reports to get through. He'd wait for Tally - and then he'd order a pint (or two). He might need one by then, because most of what he was reading wasn't good. On top of that, his arm was starting to bother him. He would likely have to ask Sachin to help him put more salve on his burns.

Contact made, Victor made good on that intention and pulled the other man to him a bit for that one armed hug. Perfectly comfortable with this sort of thing, he release Daichi much sooner than he would have liked. The glance towards his eyepatch was not missed, nor was that tattoo, and the Spaniard simply chuckled in response. "Bit of Dark magic during the battle. Need to administer eye drops a couple of times a day and keep it covered as exposure to light could weaken the effects. They are trying to save my eyesight." Victor appreciated their optimism but he felt too practical for that. Deep down he just knew that these attempts were futile, but as long as there was even a glimmer of a chance then he would go for it.

So, no need for Daichi to need to worry about coming across as rude. Victor was mostly an open book the majority of the time.

"Some of my students think I've taken to life as a pirate." Which he hammed up a bit. If playing up the imagination helped the younger Stemp House children cope, then he would be the best pirate there had ever been. "That is good to hear," he nodded, brown eyes drifting towards the menu and nodding again. "I'll order myself something and be with you shortly in that case. Would you like to share any sides? My treat."

The one armed hug was not what he had expected and Daichi had to place his free hand on the table when he got pulled closer in order to support himself. Feeling slightly flustered, the former Slytherin sat back down in his seat.

Well, that had been awkward. Sorry Victor.

”Do you believe it will heal again?” He asked after Victor had explained his part about the eyepatch. Would he be going blind in one eye if it did not? Had the curse hit him when he had attempted to get him to safety during the battle? Daichi placed his hands in his lap and squeezed them a little. He’d feel guilty if that had been the case.

”You teach?” he asked as he looked away from the eyepatch and automatically his gaze went right back. That was interesting. He did not look the type to be a teacher. But he guessed he should not judge a book by its cover. ”I've never met a pirate before though" he could already see his son rolling his eyes at this lame comment.

He too looked over at the menu and was about to open his mouth and suggest getting a side dish when Victor had the same idea. His treat? … It was true that he had not received his paycheck for the month yet… ”Some chips?” he answered. He couldn’t spoil his dinner after all.

Default ehehe a reunion of pals !
doesn't proofread tweets | #wrongaboutcereal | emo to the extremo |#HouseNATARIANA

Being a dad was great. Really. It was really great. Zander Adair had no complaints. (Zander Adair had a few complaints). But for the most part, it was great. (Mostly great). Also great was getting to take a day off, which usually consisted of running errands and therefore was not, truly, a day off at all.

But today was a TRUE day off. One where he could simply kick back, throw down a butterbeer or two, and enjoy the company of a few of his pals. Pals who would get here sometime soon, yeah? Zander checked his watch just to be sure. Thankfully, fatherhood hadn't warped his perception of time. (Though it had warped his perception of alone-time, but that's a whole different beast entirely). Er. Yeah.

He debated getting up and ordering a drink for himself as he waited, but ultimately decided to sit down at one of the large tables. Wouldn't want anyone to snag it, y'know? It'd be terrible luck if they didn't have a place to sit. So here he sat, by himself. Twiddling his thumbs. Worrying about his children who were with his wife. Worrying about his wife who was with his children. There were enough worries to go around! And.... Uh. That's on fatherhood, apparently.

With his usual flair and confident grin plastered on his face, Ethan Mordaunt welcomed himself inside the Leaky Cauldron with a handful of shopping bags in one hand. He and Josie had been shopping for their trip to France, while their three-month-old baby was left in the care of his able grangran and gramps Mordaunt. Strutting his way around, he'd easily spotted the unmistakeable blondie who was sat alone. The guy was Zander Adair...'zandering' away all by himself.

"What's got your knickers in a bunch, mate?" Ethan announced his presence with his usual boyish smile. A smile that he hadn't used in a long while. "Come 'ere Zanderman! Give this new dad a hug!" he said stretching out his arms for him.

It's been so long, but he was as loud as before.

Slytherindor ♛ The Crazytastic Besties ♛ Shan Watson ♛

What did one say at a reunion of old friends? Something along the lines of an awkward wave and a “Hi. It’s me... ZukoSimon.” Then he would hand the bag of diapers over to Ethan. He always had more on him especially after rhe letter he and Bianca had received from him and Josie.

Simon Holden was a mix of emotions. Excited to see his mates and catch up, terrified that they would all be too sleep deprived (cause parenting was tough), saddened because of Caleb Newell’s passing, and nervous that they’d see the start of his graying hair. Ok. So his hair wasn’t graying JUUUUUUUST yet but he could have sworn that he found one this morning and asked his beautiful wife to look for it. She couldn’t find it at first but then got her tweezers and said she removed it.

....Turns out it was a mundane brown looking hair that matched the rest of his hair. Whoops? Paranoia, much? Big oops. And of course, he had failed at keeping the stiff upper lip and had ended waking up poor little Artie from his nap. Yes. He was certainly sleeping on the couch tonight. Perhaps.

He pushed the doors open to the Leaky, stepping inside, and pausing just in front of the door to take a deep breath. Smoothing his jacket, he checked his watch before heading into the pub to look for his mates. He would be precisely on time to this reunion. Not one minute early or two minutes late. Sharp.

The mixed emotions flew out of him as soon as he saw Ethan with Zander and a smile lit up his face. “G’day. Is this the Father Support Group?” he half-joked with a smirk as he came closer to the two. “Good to see you, mates.” And yes, they weren’t getting away without a couple bromantic hugs.

Today there seemed to be more pep to her step as she stepped into the Leaky Cauldron. A melody of some sorts was quietly hummed as she scanned the pub for one of her good friends. She truly was a walking ray of sunshine this afternoon, which was only highlighted more by the yellow dress she was wearing. Of course, there were a number of reasons for her enhanced good mood. Today was the day she was meeting up with a certain department head (they really did need to make this a regular thing), and the other reason she was quite eager to share with him later with a celebratory drink at hand.

But first something was going to have to be done about that quill and stack of papers. "Conley Singh-Phora," her voice sounded the moment she spotted him, "please tell me you didn't bring work with you to our afternoon date." Her tone was stern, but it was still friendly nevertheless and only with the best of intensions. Her usual gap-tooth smile was on her face as she scooted into the seat opposite him and helped herself to a cup of tea.

"How has everything been, Con?" she asked, her eyes glancing at the papers before falling on the man. "Are Sachin and little Radhika doing well? And your arm?" Oh how she missed those two cuties, and she hoped his arm was healing well - if it came down to it, the former healer in her would make sure it did.

He too looked over at the menu and was about to open his mouth and suggest getting a side dish when Victor had the same idea. His treat? … It was true that he had not received his paycheck for the month yet… ”Some chips?” he answered. He couldn’t spoil his dinner after all.
Not one to be phased by such things, Victor simply smiled at Daichi and exhaled a deep breath with a sigh at the question. "While it is true that positive attitudes and mindsets are powerful tools when it comes to healing, I have seen the results of the examinations and treatments and from a practical standpoint...it does not seem likely." Despite the gravity of his words, his expression remained peaceful. "I do not see losing the sight in my eyes as something negative, not entirely. It will be regretful, of course, but it is not as though I went into that battle not knowing the risks. Loss of sight in one eye is a small sacrifice I would willing offer over and over again if it meant the freedom of our world." Which is what he had been fighting for. A better future for Minerva, her family, and his extended chosen family in Stemp House.

"I was a TA at a few universities, my longest stay was in Crete. Wandlore, Mermish, and Cryptozoology. I'm employed by Stemp House now, care giver and teacher. Bit of freelance illustrator work as well." This was all said with an immense amount of pride swelling in his chest and a certain sort of softness to his tone. He did catch the hint of skepticism in Daichi's, but it was once again not something he felt particularly fussed by. "We can be a very hospitable bunch, us pirates. Though if one were to take the 'p' our of pirate we become quite irate." He chuckled, perhaps a little too much. "But we can get into more of all that once we are both properly seated."

He ought to save that one for some of the older Stemp House kids who could appreciate the humor. Or perhaps Mr. Darling to soothe the man's concerns with regards to Victor's health.

"You got it," he confirmed with a playful click of the tongue and finger gun snap before turning and heading over to the counter to place that order. A few minutes later, give or take, and he was walking back over with a basket of chips, a basket of fried tomatoes, and a pumpkin juice for himself. Seemed like the time to finally give this pumpkin drink a try - it felt so terribly British. "Here we are..." he said as he set everything on the table and slid into his seat. "...now...I think you were about to tell me a bit about yourself."

There really wasn't much to do in adult life when you didn't have a career, and that was the only good enough reason why Theo was here. It wasn't his usual pass time. The bearded man headed to the counter at the bar and rummaged in his back pocket for some change. He had a couple of sickles, a couple of old receipts. Sigh. Finally, he pulled out a galleon and placed it on the counter. Now, what could he get with 1 galleon?

"Firewhiskey, please." He nodded to the barman, and the service was stellar at The Leaky Cauldron because within a moment, the drink was placed in front of him. "Cheers." He said, tipping the cup his way and heading to the seats.

Bleugh, it was vile, but also quite warming.

After sitting himself down alone, he downed the first chug, then Theodore continued to sip it in smaller amounts to make it last longer. And because it was disgusting.

He spent the time mulling over what else he could get up to today. He just didn't want to go home, or spend any more time with his family who wouldn't seem to leave him alone at the moment. Theodore people watched for a while and felt his eyes becoming heavy, and he hadn't noticed the frothy moustache he now had.

This summer was a challenge. The war was over, but moving forward from that was another obstacle to face. Kat was glad she had her eldest at home, despite being thankful that Cassie didn't have to go through a lot, but it did require conversations with her husband and her kids regarding how things will be in the months to come. One never does get used to being adult, in spite of already being an adult for many many years already.

In effort of bouncing back, Kat decided she could use a drink, but she didn't want to bother Elise at the moment. Things were probably as serious at the Stylinson household. These were their kids' future that they had to deal with, after all. Besides, she had a few errands to tend too and potions supplies to refill in the Alley. But not until she'd had a drink for herself, and the usual go-to in Diagon Alley was no other than the Leaky Cauldron.

"Elderflower, thank you," the former Slytherin said and offered a brief smile to the barman, all while casually sliding a galleon over the counter. With her glass in hand, Kat had opted to take a seat by the grand piano, but a familiar but also not—that was possible, she would argue—face caught her attention.

The blond briefly squinted her green eyes before it came to her. And my, what a sight for sore eyes! Or was it? He looked different, she might have been deceived. "Kinsley, is that you?" Just to be sure.

Theodore wasn't sure if he had been here for four minutes or four hours by the time he had finished his firewhiskey. Strange because it's usually easier to lose track of time when you have company rather than being alone. Still, it felt like he'd been here ages, probably looking like a right saddo, too. He fumbled around in his back pocket for a galleon to get himself another drink but he only had a couple of sickles left.

Just as he was about to get up and leave, he heard an unfamiliar voice calling his surname.

Sure that there must be someone else with a similar name to him, Theodore only peered around quickly out of curiosity. He squinted his eyes right back at the woman who was staring at HIM. "Uhh, yeah?" It must be someone from his past but he couldn't quite make her ou.... wait.... "Wait, Hudson?" He could've been wrong since it had been a long time but she certainly had her likeness.

Kat hadn't been staring that long, she would insist, but if the man didn't make any signal that he was actually her former team mate, she would've turned around, taken her place at her chosen table, and pretended none of that ever happened. Thankfully, though, her memory didn't go bad with age. She allowed herself a satisfied smile at that, and then moved towards Theodore. "You know," she started. "It's been a while since someone's called me Hudson. And since I've last seen you." She'd been married for over ten years now, but it does take her back to their Hogwarts days.

That, too, had been many, many years ago. No, let's not discuss the specific numbers here. Additionally, the Hogwarts now isn't the Hogwarts it was in their time. Obviously.

"May I?" Kat gestured at the seat opposite his. This table was suddenly better than the one by the grand piano and, besides, it's not every time you bumped into a familiar face these days, especially after the war.

She truly was a walking ray of sunshine this afternoon, which was only highlighted more by the yellow dress she was wearing. Of course, there were a number of reasons for her enhanced good mood. Today was the day she was meeting up with a certain department head (they really did need to make this a regular thing), and the other reason she was quite eager to share with him later with a celebratory drink at hand.

But first something was going to have to be done about that quill and stack of papers. "Conley Singh-Phora," her voice sounded the moment she spotted him, "please tell me you didn't bring work with you to our afternoon date." Her tone was stern, but it was still friendly nevertheless and only with the best of intensions. Her usual gap-tooth smile was on her face as she scooted into the seat opposite him and helped herself to a cup of tea.

"How has everything been, Con?" she asked, her eyes glancing at the papers before falling on the man. "Are Sachin and little Radhika doing well? And your arm?" Oh how she missed those two cuties, and she hoped his arm was healing well - if it came down to it, the former healer in her would make sure it did.

As much as he loved hearing his beloved Sachin's name alongside his, it was very weird sounding coming off of his old friend's lips. For years, it had always been Conley Phora and some things just took a long time to adjust too. Still, her cheery demeanor was catchy. It always had been. He returned her smile as she helped herself to tea like they were meeting for another study session and not lunch. "I did, but only because I don't want to have to do it when I get home." He folded up the report he had been reading and set it aside, sticking it in a pile of others and then tossing his notepad on top. "Home is for home now, I try very hard not to take work there. Especially after Radhika got her hands on a report and stuck it in Duke's water bowl." He hadn't been able to salvage the report and it had caused problems for him at work.

But now that his friend was here, it was time to stop talking shop and start catching up. "Where have you been? How have you been? I see you came out of the - well, out of everything unscathed. That's good." Every person he knew and cared about that hadn't been hurt made his getting hurt worth it. He didn't realize it but he'd been scratching at his bandages. He realized and stopped. "And have you eaten. I didn't order yet."

"What's got your knickers in a bunch, mate?" Ethan announced his presence with his usual boyish smile. A smile that he hadn't used in a long while. "Come 'ere Zanderman! Give this new dad a hug!" he said stretching out his arms for him.

It's been so long, but he was as loud as before.

Simon Holden was a mix of emotions. Excited to see his mates and catch up, terrified that they would all be too sleep deprived (cause parenting was tough), saddened because of Caleb Newell’s passing, and nervous that they’d see the start of his graying hair. Ok. So his hair wasn’t graying JUUUUUUUST yet but he could have sworn that he found one this morning and asked his beautiful wife to look for it. She couldn’t find it at first but then got her tweezers and said she removed it.

....Turns out it was a mundane brown looking hair that matched the rest of his hair. Whoops? Paranoia, much? Big oops. And of course, he had failed at keeping the stiff upper lip and had ended waking up poor little Artie from his nap. Yes. He was certainly sleeping on the couch tonight. Perhaps.

He pushed the doors open to the Leaky, stepping inside, and pausing just in front of the door to take a deep breath. Smoothing his jacket, he checked his watch before heading into the pub to look for his mates. He would be precisely on time to this reunion. Not one minute early or two minutes late. Sharp.

The mixed emotions flew out of him as soon as he saw Ethan with Zander and a smile lit up his face. “G’day. Is this the Father Support Group?” he half-joked with a smirk as he came closer to the two. “Good to see you, mates.” And yes, they weren’t getting away without a couple bromantic hugs.

Y'know, it took him a minute, but when he realized the voice was addressing HIM and that it was Ethan Mordaunt who was asking about his knickers, Zander Adair started cheesing real hard. "Ethaahaan," he wasted no time in standing up to do just as he was told. Z missed his friends, he really did. "You have that new parent glow, Eth!" Also known as: Sleep deprivation. A look that Ethan wore way better than Zander ever had, that's for sure.

Annnnnnd, before he could say much else, he heard a second voice. One that could only belong to one person: Simon Holden. "Might as well be!" Actually, a father support group was a good idea. Could they have one of those, for real? His kids were a little older now, but uhhhh... The headache hadn't yet subsided. "It's been ages since we've all been together! I'm having flashbacks to Hogwarts." Though... perhaps he wasn't. Hogwarts was a very different place now; the castle he had seen a few months prior was nothing like the one he remembered.

Maybe it was for the best that they didn't talk about it... Zander had served as a prefect with Caleb Newell, but Simon and Ethan... They lived with him. Surely the two had heard the news.

Maybe it was for the best that they didn't talk about it... Zander had served as a prefect with Caleb Newell, but Simon and Ethan... They lived with him. Surely the two had heard the news.


"Why thank you, Zanderman. It's quite obvious isn't it?" the slightly bloodshot eyes were a dead giveaway wasn't it. As if the stress of the war wasn't enough, little Liam had the perfect timing to be born; days before the breakout of the uprising. And so, yes, Ethan may be zombie-ing his way around, but that was not an excuse not to see his old pals...especially that the war was over. "How's Sophie? The kids? You?" he can tell that a lot has gone down, and he cannot wait to hear more.

It wasn't long when Simon showed up. Ah...the good old Watson to his Holmes. Unbeknownst to Zander, Ethan and Simon had been in undercover missions the past years, so they have been seeing each other more often than most of their other friends. Simon was received with a tight hug-- a "thanks again, mate" kind of embrace.

"Well we wouldn't want you passing out from the flashbacks, Z." At the mention of Hogwarts, he had an inkling as to where their conversation might go. There was an annoying dragging weight whenever the school's name was brought up. It used to be a fun place, despite the dangers, but the recent happenings surprised them all. He would know since he's currently employed with the ICW, and as an international task force agent, he was there battling the uprising alongside his family and friends.

And he's very well aware of what happened to Caleb Newell. Caleb was a very good friend, of which he had fond memories with, alongside Simon, Cutty, and Grayson back in school and the boy talks that went down in their dorm. To see him among the dead, alongside Professor Hadley, it broke Ethan's heart. They were, after all, an extension of his family. Hogwarts was home.

"Come on lads we don't have all day," he said taking his seat at the table. "Let this support session begin." Drinks...they need drinks, and lots of it please.

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

Not one to be phased by such things, Victor simply smiled at Daichi and exhaled a deep breath with a sigh at the question. "While it is true that positive attitudes and mindsets are powerful tools when it comes to healing, I have seen the results of the examinations and treatments and from a practical standpoint...it does not seem likely." Despite the gravity of his words, his expression remained peaceful. "I do not see losing the sight in my eyes as something negative, not entirely. It will be regretful, of course, but it is not as though I went into that battle not knowing the risks. Loss of sight in one eye is a small sacrifice I would willing offer over and over again if it meant the freedom of our world." Which is what he had been fighting for. A better future for Minerva, her family, and his extended chosen family in Stemp House.

"I was a TA at a few universities, my longest stay was in Crete. Wandlore, Mermish, and Cryptozoology. I'm employed by Stemp House now, care giver and teacher. Bit of freelance illustrator work as well." This was all said with an immense amount of pride swelling in his chest and a certain sort of softness to his tone. He did catch the hint of skepticism in Daichi's, but it was once again not something he felt particularly fussed by. "We can be a very hospitable bunch, us pirates. Though if one were to take the 'p' our of pirate we become quite irate." He chuckled, perhaps a little too much. "But we can get into more of all that once we are both properly seated."

He ought to save that one for some of the older Stemp House kids who could appreciate the humor. Or perhaps Mr. Darling to soothe the man's concerns with regards to Victor's health.

"You got it," he confirmed with a playful click of the tongue and finger gun snap before turning and heading over to the counter to place that order. A few minutes later, give or take, and he was walking back over with a basket of chips, a basket of fried tomatoes, and a pumpkin juice for himself. Seemed like the time to finally give this pumpkin drink a try - it felt so terribly British. "Here we are..." he said as he set everything on the table and slid into his seat. "...now...I think you were about to tell me a bit about yourself."
He listened carefully as Victor spoke about the condition of his eye and he noted that he appeared calm despite what he was saying. Was it a facade or was he truly that mentally strong? “I feel i would rather lose my eyesight as well if it meant freedom of our world” he agreed."I'm glad the children at Hogwarts are relatively safe now as well" The psychological torture they must have gone through. He was glad that his son had already graduated before Rosier had taken over. “Better to lose your eyesight than your life....” Something he had been very close to losing. All of them were of course. Getting in to battle you had to understand and be prepared for what could happen but he would be lying if he said that he wasn't glad to have survived.

And his reason of survival was seated right in front of him. At least that was what he could remember before the lights went out.

Daichi realized he had been wrong to judge Victor’s appearance with his profession because having been TA for Wandlore, Mermish and Cryptozoology was really something. AND he had been a freelance illustrator as well? Daichi could not even draw a stick figure T___T. "What is your favorite thing about working for Stemp House?" gosh that sounded like an interview question.

Merlin's Beard. Finger guns? It seemed that this man had no embarrassment what so ever. But Daichi did and as Victor left the table he took a quick glance around to see if anyone had seen but everyone seemed to be lost in their own conversations.

“There is not much to tell” he took a chip from the basket that had been placed on the table and took a bite. “I was born and raised here in England. Attended Hogwarts , Slytherin House. Chaser for the Quidditch team and Prefect which is not as impressive as it sounds. In fact i was terrible at leading the school" He laughed but there was a hint of bitterness in it. He still had some regrets.

"After graduating i worked several small jobs before i began to work at the media liaison at the Minister’s Office ” He took a sip from his drink now. “I adopted a son with my partner but he left us a couple of years ago” leaving him to take care of his son but luckily he had a wonderful supportive family. “I quit my job at the Ministry to work at a farm for my own peace of mind. Sure it was hard work but i find the countryside to be very charming” he smiled briefly, reminiscing on the past as he had truly loved his job. It had given him a stronger mental and physical health.

“I worked there during the time that my son went to Hogwarts until i decided to change things up again” He had to change up his work experience from time to time or else he’d get too bored. “I started working for Ministry again a couple of months ago and surely i had to work for a Department Head who was a Neo-Alliance member” he drank the last bit of his cherry drink in one big gulp, obviously he was still frustrated about this.

"May I?" Kat gestured at the seat opposite his. This table was suddenly better than the one by the grand piano and, besides, it's not every time you bumped into a familiar face these days, especially after the war.
Theodore laughed a little. "Not often I hear Kinsley shouted at me either." Probably because he hadn't seen many people to call him that. "Yeah, it's been a long time, hasn't it?" He couldn't even remember when he last saw Kat. Many years ago anyway. He knew she had a partner, from school, possibly. But he couldn't for the life of him remember their name. "So, how are you doing?" He had a feeling she would be married off with a billion kids, because that seemed to be a trend going on with most of his old friends.

"Yeah, sure, go ahead." He used his hands to motion towards the chair across from him. Looks like he would be sticking around these parts a bit longer. Theodore didn't mind. Much.

"You haven't changed much, Hudson." He commented with a small smile. Looks wise, that is. As soon as he had said it, he wished he hadn't, because he knew that he himself did look a little different. Much more facial and head hair, a bit of a belly, weight of the world on his shoulders.

This chance encounter was already beginning to amuse Kat. "For the record, I didn't yell," she replied with a big smile. Though she'd had her loud days in the past, certainly many years and four children ago, the last thing she'd want in the meantime is to be kicked out of a pub in broad daylight. "Far too long, I almost wouldn't have expected seeing you here of all places." Not that she could be sure, that is, Kat wasn't always in the alley as well.

"Me?" Kat asked, buying some time for her to really think about how she's doing. Also while slipping onto the seat opposite her former team mate. "Fine, I suppose." Not great, not good. "Okay enough to get by, putting everything that happened in the past year into consideration." The latter part should've gone without saying, but the war was quite fresh in the memories of the wizarding community. Perhaps it won't easily fade away, even.

"Hm." She smirked a little bit. She had assumed he was talking about appearance, as Kat was still blond, still the same height—more or less—since they last saw each other. The former Slytherin chose not to comment on that, considering Theodore had changed. That's not something anyone would want pointed out. "I think the real question is...how are you?" He seemed tired, by the looks of it. Kat took a sip from her glass.

He seemed tired, by the looks of it. Kat took a sip from her glass.
He snorted a little. "Hmm... I must just remember you being a loud person in general." He was joking, of course. Theodore smiled a bit softer and nodded his head towards the empty glass in front of him. "Good observation, this isn't my usual hang out spot." It felt nice to surround himself with his magical roots from time to time. He felt like he was so trapped with his muggle family recently. "Drinks are still disgusting, though!" Theodore wasn't adventurous enough to try something new, though, in case it tasted even worse! It was a lame attitude to have. "And why are you here by yourself? Or are you waiting for someone?" Theo hoped not.

"Oh?" That didn't sound too convincing. He was kind of... surprised that it wasn't just him having a lousy time. Although her comment about the past year did make sense. Theodore sighed, "Yeah, it's been a pretty rough time." Another reason why he had kept himself to his family. For good reasons but it had resulted in a bit of a disconnection from the wizarding world.

Theodore didn't notice Kat not really responding to his comment. Oh, great, they were talking about him. "Ummm..." He sat back against his seat and sighed heavily. He could always lie, that was the easy option. Telling the truth may be easy since Kat wasn't someone he saw often. Let's go for something in between. "Yeah, not bad, thanks. Been looking for a job recently, not much luck there, though." Another reason why he was hanging around the alley. He had been looking in shop windows or just hoping to bump into someone that could help. "Thought about enquiring at the Ministry but... I guess I don't really have enough experience to go there." Theo shrugged.

Was it a facade or was he truly that mentally strong? “I feel i would rather lose my eyesight as well if it meant freedom of our world” he agreed."I'm glad the children at Hogwarts are relatively safe now as well" The psychological torture they must have gone through. He was glad that his son had already graduated before Rosier had taken over. “Better to lose your eyesight than your life....” Something he had been very close to losing. All of them were of course. Getting in to battle you had to understand and be prepared for what could happen but he would be lying if he said that he wasn't glad to have survived.

And his reason of survival was seated right in front of him. At least that was what he could remember before the lights went out.

Daichi realized he had been wrong to judge Victor’s appearance with his profession because having been TA for Wandlore, Mermish and Cryptozoology was really something. AND he had been a freelance illustrator as well? Daichi could not even draw a stick figure T___T. "What is your favorite thing about working for Stemp House?" gosh that sounded like an interview question.

Merlin's Beard. Finger guns? It seemed that this man had no embarrassment what so ever. But Daichi did and as Victor left the table he took a quick glance around to see if anyone had seen but everyone seemed to be lost in their own conversations.

“There is not much to tell” he took a chip from the basket that had been placed on the table and took a bite. “I was born and raised here in England. Attended Hogwarts , Slytherin House. Chaser for the Quidditch team and Prefect which is not as impressive as it sounds. In fact i was terrible at leading the school" He laughed but there was a hint of bitterness in it. He still had some regrets.

"After graduating i worked several small jobs before i began to work at the media liaison at the Minister’s Office ” He took a sip from his drink now. “I adopted a son with my partner but he left us a couple of years ago” leaving him to take care of his son but luckily he had a wonderful supportive family. “I quit my job at the Ministry to work at a farm for my own peace of mind. Sure it was hard work but i find the countryside to be very charming” he smiled briefly, reminiscing on the past as he had truly loved his job. It had given him a stronger mental and physical health.

“I worked there during the time that my son went to Hogwarts until i decided to change things up again” He had to change up his work experience from time to time or else he’d get too bored. “I started working for Ministry again a couple of months ago and surely i had to work for a Department Head who was a Neo-Alliance member” he drank the last bit of his cherry drink in one big gulp, obviously he was still frustrated about this.
The Spaniard had certainly not meant for this reunion to be so heavy, but he supposed it could not be helped given the aftermath of war. It was a page that needed to be properly written and read before it could be turned. He and Daichi were simply writing their page now, Victor more than willing to add the illustrations. "And we both are here now," he smiled with a friendly hand to the other man's shoulder. "That is the important thing." Victor still had things he wanted to address with Daichi, but this was enough for now. Until they had their chips, that is.

His new friend would come to know that these dabblings came from Victor being very restless and unwilling to settle. While he may have extensive knowledge, he would not consider himself a true expert in all of them. He knew enough wandlore to secure a temporary assistant role in Ollivanders, though that came through a Stemp House connection as well, and languages had always been an interest to him so Mermish had come naturally with his interest in all things aquatic. Plus it came in handy for travel arrangements. But such discussion was for neither here nor there, especially in light of that particular question. "Having a family," he replied easily, the pride in his chest rising up higher and adding a twinkle to his eyes.

Relaxing into his seat a bit more, Victor picked up a crisp and then pulled a little bottle of Tabasco from his pocket to drip on to it before popping it into his mouth. He would absolutely protest the notion of there not being much to tell, everyone had a story worth telling, but instead he remained quiet and offered Daichi his undivided attention. "I do not know much about Hogwarts myself, save for what I hear from my students and girlfriend. I do have several students who were sorted into Slytherin and from what I can tell it is a very ambitious house, perhaps the sort of house to draw those in who have high expectations unto themselves and may judge themselves for not being more." Something that seemed very much echoed right now in Daichi's words. "I would not judge your past self too harshly. It is hard for a teenager to lead themselves let alone an entire student body. Though true not all paths are meant for us, it is all a part of the journey." He paused a moment to take a sip from his drink. "I myself...did not finish school...not in the traditional sense. I attended Ilvermorny as a Thunderbird and I suppose you could argue I finished as I sat my exams, but I left as soon as I had and lead the life of a lone vagabond for about five years before settling down anywhere long term." Higher education was even muddier. His stay and attempt to ground himself somewhere even more so.

That twinkle in Victor's eyes brightened at the mention of adoption. It was something Victor yearned to do and yet could not bring himself to do for fears so deeply rooted in himself he was certain he may never untangle. Minerva...would make for a great mother and it would love to give that to her somehow. There was a subconscious wince at the mention of Daichi's partner leaving father and son, something that stung Victor's memory greatly, but quickly suppressed the memory of those tears. "What is it like, being a father?" he found himself asking despite the more natural progression of conversation being to focus on the Neo Alliance and the fact that Daichi had survived that ordeal. "How is he coping with all of this?"

Oh, please. Kat wanted to snort right back, but she settled with a low chuckle. "Lots of people watched us during matches, Kinsley, you can't be sure I was the one yelling," the blond said, smirking. He wasn't far off though, because when one happens to be in the zone, they do tend to spew out words in high volumes. Memories of their youth. Kat would drink to that. "No, I came alone. Simply wanted a drink before running some errands." The adult life isn't so glamourous to talk about. Harsh realities.

Kat nodded quietly. Empathy was all she could have right now, considering she and her family weren't heavily affected. She was grateful for that, but that didn't make the entire first half of the year any better for those who lost loved ones. "I hope your family's doing well," she said, remembering Theodore was a muggleborn himself.

"Oh," she clicked her tongue just thinking about it. The job hunting part was certainly the worst phase of the adult life. Kat figured this might be the best time maybe offer him help or whatever, but Theodore made it easier for her by mentioning the ministry. "That's funny, I work for the ministry." Cue a little sip of her glass there. "You should still give it a go. I like to think there's a job opening in the ministry for...quite literally anything and anyone." The ministry could probably hire an atrium entertainer if they wanted, their job listing descriptions were that vast.
