Default Fountain


What might be a work of art, or is possibly what nightmares are made of, is the fountain outside the Leaky Cauldron. Large, gaudy and rather obnoxious, it is most definitely a centerpoint of the area. Built of crumbling stone, the fountain is tall and contains three tiers. Starting at the bottom, the fountain has a three-foot high wall. In the center and serving as a support beam is a water serpent that rises from the pool and to the very top. Winged cherubs with wicked looks in their eyes hang off the serpent and dragons peer from around his climbing body. If it feels like the dragons and cherubs are watching you, it’s because they probably are. One cherub has been missing his head for centuries. Cherubs and dragons alike spit water in many directions, sometimes at different intervals, creating a beautiful display when sunlight catches the dancing water.

However, the fountain is not merely a great sight. Perhaps it is haunted, or maybe cursed, for the fountain has a tendency to spit water at people. Those who loiter too long may find their faces wet. Try to sit down on the edge without dropping a coin and you may find yourself doused with water. However – do not try to outsmart the fountain. Dropping muggle money won’t buy you any time. On the contrary, those who drop muggle coins will find themselves pelted with coins.

Oh, and just a warning. Don't try to stick your hand into the water, especially in hopes of grabbing some money from the bottom. Creepy things with tentacles would love to bathe with you.

As Ollie looked up she noticed the girl, now drenched in water. Ollie quickly set her bags down and shuffled over towards the girl. "Are you alright?"
Remy stuffed her half eaten sugar quill into her pocket, not forward thinking that it would be sticky later on. She huffed and puffed as she rung out the water in her hair and used her sleeves to dry her face. Now she looked like a drowned rat, awesome.

Even better, someone had SEEN this happen and was being kind enough to see if she was okay.

If she wasn't so humiliated, she might have been a little kinder. "Do I look al..." Remy sighed. "Sorry, yeah, it's just a little water." In fact, after wiping her face with her sleeves, she was pretty much dry again. It's easy to be dramatic when you're 11 years old.

"Thanks for asking." The blonde smiled properly. "Do you go to Hogwarts?" It was a VERY important question and she would get to the reason why when the girl answered.

Ollie realized she may have embarrassed the girl. It wasn't typical of her to be forward with strangers but Ollie didn't see what had happened to the girl. Maybe this forwardness wasn't meant for her.

"Not yet. This coming term will be my first." and boy was she nervous about it. After all, she had only learned she was a witch a short year ago. She was sure that everyone else she had come across was so advanced in their magic already. Her father refused to tell her anything, except for the fact that she couldn't practice magic outside of school. "Do you?"

Of course she'd be going to Hogwarts, too. What other reason would there be for a kid her age to be wandering around the alley? "Yeahhh." She paused, "Yeah, I'm starting my first year as well." Remy felt a little jolt of excitement at the prospect of a new friend. Hopefully they'd be in Gryffindor together.

"Listen..."

Remy moved slightly closer to the girl and spoke in a quieter voice. "Don't tell anyone about this, okay?" About her almost drowning in the fountain. Remy nodded quite seriously, but then offered the girl a big smile. "So... have you got all your stuff yet?" As in books, robes, etc.

And she got good school grades and stuff. But that stuff never came up. People would rather hear about her months in the mirror than her art. The didn't get it. The art came from the mirror. The art came out of it. "Houses don't matter much though, so I could be a Gryffindor." Based on the amount of trouble she got into.

"What's a pedalstool?" She had no idea what that was. Although if anyone were to be seated on a pedalstool, Emmerson Cambridge would be that person. Although she was pretty sure the girl was referring to a pedestal, which would make more sense contextually. "Some people still think that, but they get in trouble for it now." Physical trouble. As in, you could fight them and a cult would not come to back them up.

And on to the subject of people she actually liked. Yay! "Yes, that Minjae. Yeah well, he didn't set me on fire on purpose. That was mostly accidental." He mostly just wanted to set her antlers on fire... but that was hard to explain. Like, how was she supposed to explain the antlers? Or the purpose of the duel? Or Fake Trent? Better to just be quiet on it. That was a looong story. "Of course I lived. The healers at Hogwarts are very good. I go to them all the time." Because of her constant injuries. Yay. Fighting, fire, possession, torture, work accidents, all of it.

Haha, love WAS weird, wasn't it? Not dumb, but very weird and confusing. "Lisa, if you ever want to ask someone out, you should walk up to them and ask if they want to be your special friend." She giggled. "I'm kidding. Even though that would be really funny."

It was a good thing Lisa didn't tell Ash about how she imagined Theodore with a monocle. Ash would have pictured the monopoly man, and that would have stuck in her head forever. To be clear, her boyfriend did not look like the monopoly man. He was pretty. He was cute. He was NOT the monopoly man. But Ash didn't know, so she was spared that thought.

"He is just as cool as me." Ash wasn't gonna date someone who she didn't like just for the sake of not being single. Duh. "AND he can cook and he can make good decisions." Those were like, very important to Ash. Because those were in the very small category of 'things I can't do'. "And he's really great and stuff." She could go on about this, but she didn't really think Lisa would be interested. The gist was, her boyfriend was great, and he didn't look like the monopoly man.

"No problem. Let's go get ice cream." Ash walked in the direction of ice cream. Lisa was her friend. Friends who could afford it bought friends ice cream. That was the truth.


Ah! She was being hugged! And while she was very surprised and confused as to exactly why she was being hugged, She LOVED loved loved hugs. So she hugged Lisa back, which was not easy because Lisa was short and Ash was tall. Hugs! Yay! A sign of actual friendship. That settled it. They were friends forever now. Yup. Friends forever. Good hugs=friendship. That was also the truth.

If Ash was in Ravenclaw, then that house must have been super cool. Intelligence and Ravenclaw went together? Well that made sense considering that her brother, Evan, was a Ravenclaw. He was pretty smart. Then again so was Maya and Noah but they were in two different houses.... She remained silent, listening to Ash more, and then she breathed out heavily when Ash mentioned that the houses don’t matter too much. “I was thinking the same thing based on what you said and based on my siblings...” She offered a small smile.

Was that how it was pronounced or spelled? She wasn’t quite sure. “It’s like a marble column that someone sits a top like a Greek God... Or someone who thinks their high or mighty... Maybe its a pedestal and not a pedalstool. I think a pedalstool is a chair but maybe that’s funnier.” She giggled, imagining someone as a chair and not a marble column. English could be hard. It was after all her second language but the misnomer was comical. And Lisa lived for comedic moments. She frowned a little when Ash said a few people still thought of muggleborns of less. “At least they get into trouble now.” That was a good thing. Long may that continue. She’d keep her fingers crossed. And toes too!

Oh, that made way more sense. Minjae was friends with her brother Noah and he didn’t seem like a mean guy. “Oh good. I’ve heard he’s really nice...” she commented. She chuckled when Ash encouraged her to go up and to ask her someone out as her special friend. “Maybe I should!” she beamed, knowing that Ash was joking cause she said that she was. “I think it’d throw someone off. Their reaction would be worth saying it.” After all, Lisa did like to surprise people and get a reaction out of them. “Here’s to the future special friend.” Boyfriend was a scary word to her. Special friend was just special.

She looked a little starry eyed as Ash gave her the deets about her ‘special friend’/boyfriend, Theodore. He sounded very special to her. “He can cook!!?” she repeated with wide eyes. She was very excited to hear what he liked to cook. “What can he cook?” And could he cook her something? Pretty please.

Sure the hug was a little awkward but the fact that Ash hugged her back made Lisa feel all nice and warm and happy on the inside. “Ice cream sounds great!” she said, walking with the girl to go get some delicious treats!

Ollie smiled at the idea of meeting another first year. At least she would not show up the first day knowing no one. Even if they weren't great friends yet. Maybe they would even have class together! She might even have someone to ride the train with. She eyed the girl trying to place her into a house in her mind. Maybe a Slytherin, she thought, she did seem aggravated when Ollie had approached her. Though maybe Ollie's idea of the houses wasn't what they really were. She did only hear her dad's versions of the houses.

Ollie nodded her head towards her bags she had placed down before running over. "Mostly everything. I only have a few more stores to pop into." She bit the inside of her lip, nervous the girl would judge her for coming alone. She looked around and notice the girl seemed to be alone as well. Had her parents sent her by herself as well?

"I agree. It sounds funny to think of that girl sitting in a chair instead of on a column." Especially since, y'know, the image of one person sitting in a chair with everyone else writhing in pain at their feet was strangely accurate. Ash laughed. "Maybe sitting on a pedalstool is like when you're all high and mighty, but not high and mighty enough to have your own pedestal." Sounded exactly like some people. Maybe they were comfortably seated on a pedalstool.

Not her though. She was uncomfortably seated on the floor. At least her friends were there. "Yes, he can cook! Like cook fancy stuff. I can only really cook, like, macaroni and cheese, and soup. Stuff like that. But he knows how to cook chicken and rice, and I say that is an improvement." Lisa was very right to be impressed by cooking skills. Cooking was one of the few things that Ash couldn't do. Cooking was all confusing. Somehow it felt harder than potions. That didn't even make sense.

"Yeah, let's go get ice cream." She walked with Lisa. This interaction had turned out to be an enjoyable one, unlike most of her other interactions. Maybe the universe was smiling at her today. Or pitying her. One of them.

Remy furrowed her brow a little when the girl hadn't responded about her TELLING asking her not to tell anyone at Hogwarts about her fountain accident. She'd have to keep her eye on this one, especially since they were going to be in the same year. Still, she would let it go for now. Getting spat in the face by a fountain wasn't the MOST embarrassing thing to happen.

She grinned. "It's fun, isn't it? Buying all of the stuff. Most of my books had to be hand-me-downs from my sister," Unfortunately so, "But my mum let me buy everything else brand new. My mum's just in there..." Remy pointed to the Leaky Cauldron. "Where's your mum?" Or dad, or someone. Remy wasn't the type of person to consider that someone else might not have the same family pattern as she had.

Ollie bit the inside of her lip nervously. This had been the first time all day someone had asked about a parent. Should she lie or tell the truth that her father hadn't cared enough about her first year at Hogwarts to come shopping for supplies with her. "My dad couldn't come." She decided that was the best answer - not a lie, but not fully the truth either. All the other students had parents with them, or if they didn't they were off in a nearby shop.

"I don't have any siblings so I have to buy all of my supplies new." She wanted to ask the girl about her sibling's years at Hogwarts. It would be nice to see if they had given their little sister advice he could pass on to Ollie. After all, Her father had only told her a few things about the school and it had been a really long time since he had been there, so Ollie was sure that his advice probably wasn't any good. "How do your siblings like Hogwarts?What houses are they in? Wha-" Ollie caught herself before she overloaded the girl with questions. Maybe they'd sit together on the train, then she'd have plenty of time to ask all her questions.

"Oh." Remy suddenly felt really bad for insinuating that her mother would be here. For all she knew, this girl might not even have one. "He let you come here by yourself? That's so cool." She liked to think that it would be cool, but Remy would probably feel really anxious if she was in the same situation. Feeling a little bit of sudden empathy for the girl, she offered, "You can hang out with me for a bit, if you like." Remy was sure her mum wouldn't mind if she took a friend to some shops.

"Lucky!" Remy exclaimed. "I wish I could have bought everything brand new." She did pack her sisters Gryffindor woolly hat because she was DEFINITELY going to be in Gryffindor.

OOohh, question time. FUN. This chick didn't even know her name yet.

"My sister loved going to Hogwarts, she said everything about it was cool, even the homework." Her sister was a book lover but Remy could imagine that magic homework couldn't NOT be fun. "Anya... my sister... was in Gryffindor. Like I will be, too!" Remy grinned.

Ollie could see the shift on the girl's face. She was pretty good at reading people's faces and could tell the girl felt bad. "Oh Thanks. I'm not sure I'm so lucky though, this is my first time here and I've gotten lost a few times. I'm Ollie by the way." She offered her hand to the girl. Her father had always told her that it was rude not to offer your hand with your name, as long as you're introducing yourself first. "Well my real name is Olive... You can call me either"

"How are you sure that you'll be a Gryffindor?" She didn't really need to ask because she felt the same about Ravenclaw, but she wanted to entertain the girl as well as learn more about the house itself. From what she understood, Gryffindors were the daredevils in a sense. Never afraid to do anything and, from what her father said, never would turn down a dare. If that were true Ollie would have to keep that in her back pocket in case she found herself in trouble with one.

That was so... sad. Getting lost and being by yourself in Diagon Alley. It was a pretty big place. Remy smiled as the girl finally gave an introduction, and was a little amused about the offering of a handshake. What were they? Ministry of Magic workers in suits? Still, Remy extended her hand out and gave a vigorous shake. "Nice to meet cha, I'm Remy. I'll stick with Ollie, I think." It felt more like a friend thing to do, because that's what they were now.

"Uhhmm..." Remy shrugged, looking back to the fountain for an answer.

"My sister was in Gryffindor, and my mum." Her dad wasn't in Gryffindor, which is why she didn't mention it. "Gryffindors are brave." She informed Ollie with a nod. She hadn't had many opportunities in her life to be brave so far, but she had every bit of confidence that she could probably fight a troll if she found herself in that situation. "What house do you think you'll be in?" Remy asked, expectantly.

"Uhh, no?" She was going to simply chalk it all up to the fact that she had been a bit preoccupied with her sneezing and coughing fit that she had been having moments earlier. "Is it still here?"
Blake pointed toward the mascot looking thing that had been shouting about the ice cream party. "I actually came for ice cream. I wonder if that thing is a MIND READER!" he said excitedly.

If he were a more intelligent person he'd have realized that the bear was advertising ice cream and was colored similarly to one. But nope. The conclusion was lost on the Gryffindor boy.

Colin was surprised that there were just comments about ice cream as opposed to someone excitedly asking him where the party was. He'd have ran over in his youth. (Especially if he'd just survived a war.)

Maybe the kids were just more cautious nowadays?

Or maybe he should have brought balloons?

He instead hopped around on one foot then the other.

"IIIII SCREAM ABOUT ICE CREAAAAM." The banker thought that line was rather clever.

"End of war party at Florean Fortescue's."

Rather than simply turn her head towards where Blake had pointed, Mac turned her entire body that way, pulling one of her legs up onto the fountain wall and folding it up under the other. Hmm, interesting. So she had completely missed the person hopping about in the large brightly colored bear costume, shouting about ice cream. How out of it was she?!

Running a hand through her hair, Mac chewed at the inside of her cheek and turned her gaze back towards Blake. "Mm, dunno how I hadn't noticed them before..." Could it have been because she couldn't see a thing, thanks to her cat allergy?! "Are you heading there now then?" To get ice cream, that is. Maybe if she tagged along it would help take her mind off of everything else that was currently disappointing at the moment.

Still, Remy extended her hand out and gave a vigorous shake. "Nice to meet cha, I'm Remy. I'll stick with Ollie, I think." It felt more like a friend thing to do, because that's what they were now.

"Uhhmm..." Remy shrugged, looking back to the fountain for an answer.

"My sister was in Gryffindor, and my mum." Her dad wasn't in Gryffindor, which is why she didn't mention it. "Gryffindors are brave." She informed Ollie with a nod. She hadn't had many opportunities in her life to be brave so far, but she had every bit of confidence that she could probably fight a troll if she found herself in that situation. "What house do you think you'll be in?" Remy asked, expectantly.
"My dad was a Ravenclaw, so I think I'll be sorted into it too. I'm pretty smart..." She paused. She was sure that wasn't the only thing that described a Ravenclaw but she couldn't think of anything else to say, so she didn't. She glanced down at her watch. It was getting close to the time her father had told her to leave the alley. But she wasn't done talking to the girl yet! Ollie thought for a moment.

"Do you wanna ride on the train with me? I don't have anyone to sit with and you're pretty nice." She gave a soft smile to the girl hoping she would say yes. (please, please, PLEASE) How embarrassing would it be for Ollie to show up with no one to talk to on the long train ride. Maybe she'd read her new books she had picked up so she didn't seem so alone.

"Huh." Interesting, a Ravenclaw. Remy had never met anyone from Ravenclaw. She was a little disappointed but there was still time for the Sorting Hat to change its mind and place Ollie in Gryffindor, too. "Oh yeah, Ravenclaw is where the smart people go." That was all she knew about Ravenclaw as well. "My dad actually wasn't in Gryffindor... he was in..." She paused and leaned in a bit closer. "Slytherin." Gross, right?

GASP.

Remy felt ELATED. This is what having BOARDING SCHOOL FRIENDS was like. She beamed, showing off every single tooth. "Of COURSE, I don't have anyone to sit with either. You're my first ever friend." The sentence came out completely wrong. "I mean, I've had friends before, but, you know what I mean." Hopefully.

"Should we meet somewhere on the train? Liiiiiiiike.... at the front?"

Blake squinted at the girl with narrowed eyes, studying her. Something seemed... off. In fact, it seemed really off because he of all people noticed and had questions.

"I don't know how you missed it either..." he said slowly. "I was planning on heading for ice cream anyway. This is a happy coincidence. Did you want to come...?"

"You can tell me what's going on on the way."

"You can tell me what's going on on the way."
Mac stared right back at him when he looked at her that way. She knew exactly what he was doing. It wasn't that big a deal, was it? So she had been a tad pre-occupied and hadn't noticed the person dressed in a colorful bear costume dancing around, shouting about ice cream. Much worse things could've happened.

She shrugged a shoulder. "It happens." No, no it didn't. Not to her. Especially not lately. Normally she was one of those people that was hyper aware of her surroundings even when it didn't appear that she was paying any attention at all. "Sure. No point in turning down ice cream."

"There really isn't all that much to tell but okay." Mac got up from where she was sat down on the fountain, bending down to grab her back and board off the pavement.

Blake continued giving ~looks~. "Just happens? Yeah, right. Nobody is in a mood just for the fun of it." He knew this. He especially knew this about women. His dad and family made sure to teach him this sort of stuff. He never really thought he'd need it though. He held his board behind his head as and continued looking, waiting for an explanation.

Were the looks really all that necessary? All he was doing was frustrating her more by staring at her the way that he was. He was making it sound like she was being some kind of disobedient little child or something. "Yeah, it just happens. You're going to tell me you've never not noticed something before because you were a little preoccupied moments before?" Cause' if so she wasn't going to buy into it.

As for being moody, Mac snorted. "Moody? I'm pretty much always moody." Not even joking. Being moody and having an attitude was her thing, it was how she was. "However since it's not important, my allergies are being a pain today." As simple as that. End of story. Unless he thought he needed details about her allergies as well.

Now that he was a little less angry at magic, didn't LOVE it still, but at least didn't have the same rage that had been building before, Evan found himself willing to do a lot more shopping and even just exploring in Diagon Alley this summer. He'd been to quite a few places already on the North Side, and he was feeling a bit peckish and off towards the Leaky, when the sunlight shining on the water of the Fountain caught his eye and pulled him closer.

He'd never really admired the thing before. Passed by it a multitude of times, but hadn't stopped to look at it. He wasn't sure if it was beautiful... or if it was eerie. There was no doubt the detail work to it was amazing, but he did pause and wonder about the inspiration behind the designs. Why the serpent and cherubs and everything else?

Stepping closer to it, he was not expecting the small bubble of water that squirted out towards him and he side stepped to avoid it. "Hey!"

Dawn wasn't exactly speed-walking. Not at all. No, really, she wasn't! It might've looked like she was in a hurry to get somewhere, but really, she wasn't.

REALLY!!!

But it wasn't like she was about to stop to admire the beauty(?) of Diagon Alley's fountain either. In fact, she didn't think anyone would ever do that. Not that she thought it was stupid or whatever, but it just never crossed her mind people would be interested in such a mundane thing, and in the middle of Diagon Alley, no less.

Which was why the rising third-year was nearly bumped into by a boy who stepped sideways all of a sudden. "Whoa! Careful." She said, side stepping herself and putting a hand out to stop him from fully bumping into her. NOT that she thought that little bump would hurt either one of them anyway, it wasn't, but still.

Dawn looked over to see what had caused him to move and saw... nothing. "What was that??" She asked, surprised to see, well, nothing that could've made him side step out of the blue, and yeeeet...???

Evan had been so focused on not getting wet, he'd managed to not notice a person standing right in the spot he was trying to get to to avoid it. Which... the fact that now he had run into someone else, instead of usually them running into him, made his face flush from embarrassment. "I'm sorry." He was glad she'd jumped out of the way and he hadn't sent her falling down or anything of the sort.

The Ravenclaw glanced back at the fountain, staring at it again and shifting his gaze to the ground where he could see a small wet spot. Well, at least he wasn't crazy and that had happened. Was that a normal thing of all magic fountains? He'd never noticed if Hogwarts had any and if they behaved similarly to this one. Truthfully, if it was a common occurrence, he wouldn't have been that surprised either. Magic could certainly be finnicky.

Turning back to the girl, he pointed at the spot on the ground to at least show evidence. "The fountain spit at me. I'm sorry I wasn't paying attention and nearly bumped into you. Are you alright?"

Huh, a polite one.

"That's fine." Dawn replied, pretending she didn't find it WEIRD the fact that he had just moved like that for no apparent reason.

When the boy said the fountain had spat at him, the Slytherin couldn't help but let out a loud laugh. "Aren't they funny when they do that? Some people think it's a sign of good luck when you're splashed." Truth or myth? Was she making it up or had she heard it from someone? Hard to say. "Too bad you missed it." She added with a grin.

If she was alright? "Yeeeeah, I'm fine. I'm not made of glass, you know?" Dawn laughed, waving a lazy hand at him. "Next time you should try a proper tackle to see if you can get me." She BET he couldn't.

Just sayin'.

... Oh.

The girl's laughter and commentary made him feel a bit silly, and he probably flushed a bit red. So then it was common apparently for the fountain's to spit on someone? Did they do other weird things too? Evan turned his attention back to the water, blinking a bit at it. A sign of good luck, huh? "What's so lucky about having a giant wet spot on your shirt?" Would it have been giant? Probably not, given how small the actual spot on the ground was where it had gotten wet.

But still.

A proper... tackle? Why on earth would he try to willingly tackle the girl? On concrete no less? "Well.. that does sound like it would break some bones unless you turned the Room of Requirement into a pillow room or something." And did it there. Where it was safe and free from injury. "Do you play contact sports?" Maybe that was why she had even thought of it.
