Default Flourish and Blotts

About halfway down the north side of the Alley stands Flourish and Blotts, the shop noticeable by its wide picture windows displaying all sorts of gold-embossed spellbooks, any new releases warranting advertisement and the occasional sleeping cat, as the shopkeeper’s two cats occasionally decide to make the window display their chosen napping place when they aren’t underfoot. Upon entry, all that seems to be visible are bookshelves, stacked to the ceiling and absolutely filled with books of all shapes and sizes. While it may look like chaos, there is a sort of order to the shelves and various stacks of books scattered throughout the main floor in addition to those shelved. A table sits close to the door which regularly holds sets of Hogwarts’ required textbooks every summer for the ease of students who may not want to hunt them down on their own, and a staircase, even more shelves filling the space underneath, leads up to a second floor that contains shelves of the various works of fiction from the Wizarding world and beyond.

Near the center of the shop stands the counter, where the shopkeeper can usually be found and which is also the location for the occasional book-signing or other book-related event. Surrounding the counter are displays of newspapers, magazines, diaries, journals and other small items that might interest the literary-minded customer. In addition, a large, leather-bound book rests on a small stand to the left of the counter: an index of all the books sold in the shop for the use of the customers who are in a hurry or simply don’t want to search through all the shelves on their own.

Toward the back of the shop, a door leading to a storage area and the small office used for paperwork and any other business the shopkeeper needs to take care of in private, a cat-door installed as well as the cats’ food and water while they’re in shop are there. Tucked away in various corners of the shop, half hidden by shelves and very cozy, are small reading nooks containing squashy chairs and small tables for a lamp, and a larger reading area including a fireplace can be found near one of the front windows. Enjoy!

The apparent dismissal by the one young girl hadn’t ruffled Elizabeth’s feathers one bit. All sorts came through the shop on a normal day, and besides, she remembered the girl. She remembered most of her customers, for that matter. It made things easier when it came to making sure she had an inclusive stock, not to mention the ability to provide owl post services for mail orders, with a bit of assistance of course. However, it was the other girl who had gained more of her attention, since she’d been the one injured.

It was obvious she was a Gryffindor, too. “Let me know if you need any healing,” she responded, giving Remy and her possibly bleeding toe a nod. “I’ll be roaming the shop if either of you need anything,” she added before stepping slightly away.

Besides, one never knew what other disasters might happen in a bookshop when teenagers were around, with books that were at least occasionally a bit dangerous.

"She'll be fine." Emmerson assured the shopkeeper. Just a stubbed toe. Whether there was blood or not, it wasn't the sort of thing that would kill a person.

Remy could toughen up, if she hadn't already.

Maybe they'd start with her perception of the world. A decent human being? Hardly. "You've got a whole lot of people telling you what's right and wrong, determining what's mean instead of what's practical. I know a couple others like you. They broke during the war. Walk with me." She decided, tugging the girl along as she really did need to find these books. "You see, Remy, there's a line you gotta draw if you wanna get anything done in life and if you burden yourself too much, you crumple and break down and get other people killed." But that was neither here nor there.

Emmerson's eyes scanned the shelves about them, in case another book from her booklist popped up. "If they tell you to go away, you make them understand why they should never do it again." Simple, really. "You have to make whatever you want them to do, more appealing than whatever they're already doing or what you intend to do to them--of course, you'll need to be able to back it up, so you start small. You learn how to guile your way through. If you work hard enough at some magic, you don't need the guile anymore, just the power." Real simple. She hoped the younger girl was paying attention. Graduating from First Year hood, this was important stuff. You had to start early.

If the girl expected judgment at her book choice, she was in for quite the surprise. Emm's whole face lit up at the mention of advanced transfiguration? "Yeah?" Perhaps Remy wasn't so hopeless afterall. "What kind? I've been looking into some myself. Need to have a talk with Carton when we get back and I can't wait. You any good at it?"

Emmerson’s confirmation that she was okay had done just that - confirmed that she was totally okay. It was amazing the influence that the older students had over her, but especially older Gryffindors. Remy strived to be as cool as Emmerson Cambridge one day, despite her opinions about her, which was why she suddenly decided to actually take her “advice” on board. She gave a parting smile to the shopkeeper.

Hearing her describe people like her as people who broke during the war was… hard to hear. Remy had thought of herself as a tough cookie, but she supposed she’d never really been exposed to anything like the other students had. Her reaction to the Healer Poppy mess at the play also started to play on her mind, because she had gotten herself into a right state. She nodded as Emmerson explained. “So…” she used the word power. Interesting. “… I could use magic to get people to do stuff for me?” It made perfect sense. Serena had singlehandedly taken Healer Poppy down at the play, now everyone thought she was awesome. Remy had other thoughts on the matter but those were more selfish and she wouldn’t like to admit.

I dunno if anyone would listen to me if I tried to be like that.” She admitted with a little shrug. “Although I did hope that being a second year would make other people take me more seriously.” It was clearly already working because Emmerson wasn’t being awful to her.

It was nothing I could probably do now.” Like, probably seventh year kinda stuff. “I did pretty well in Transfiguration last term.” So modest, of course.
you say that I’m kinda difficult
but it’s always someone else’s fault
