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 center point 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.

David felt weird being away from water, walking, talking, breathing like nromally. He'd nearly had a panic attack in the shower the other day, as what he'd been through suddenly struck him. He needed to deal with it all and sit and have a think, but first... he needed to thank someone.

So he stood near the fountain, an ironic choice for a meeting location, and waited, one hand in the pocket of his suit trousers, the other slowly twirling the stem of a white rose.

It would be best not to presume her usual lack of outward expression meant that she did not feel a certain delight in today's meeting. She did, and for more reasons than she could finally detract one item from her weekly to-do list, but preferred to maintain her usual stoic melancholy exterior. She too had something in hand and had used some of her tip money from Noltie's to slip into the till before ending her shift and grabbing a bag of the freshest fertilizer to offer David as a 'welcome back' gift. She had even placed a bronze color ribbon upon it - quite thoughtful of her.

Her only thoughts regarding the location were that, perhaps, there was a certain separation anxiety he now had with water and preferred to be near it. There had been, after all, some rather curious occurrences at the Ministry over the course of this whole ordeal.

Approaching him with casual stride, she stopped just a few paces from him and took note of the white rose before lifting her gaze to look upon his delicately sunken features properly. "Hello, David." There was even a hint of a smile as she spoke and cradled the bag of the Noltie's finest fertilizer in her arms. "I am much relieved to see you well and back above land."

The fountain did indeed feel a bit like home, now that he thought about it. But before he could think too deeply on it, or start stripping down to his socks to jump in and bathe in it, Valerie showed up.

"Hello," he greeted, turning on his heel and sparing her a rare smile back. Well, rare for these days. "I am, in fact, above water, breathing and everything." It was weird. He held out the white rose from his greenhouse. "For you."

Davi was very serious about it now, the smile all gone. "Thank you. I can't say thank you enough for keeping my plants alive." He'd let this flower be a start though. "How did you know? That I was one of the kidnapped?" He studied her seriously, his earnest blue eyes popping without the aid of any glasses today.

And it was now, now that he was staring at her, that he noticed the.... fertilizer!? With a ribbon on it? How Val was that.

Yes. Please spare all from observing you romping and splashing around in the fountain, David Truebridge. There was a certain guarantee that one Valerie Gray was very much likely to have turned heel and left with such a spectacle. She only had so much tolerance for shenanigans and dealing with customers had her teetering dangerously towards her limit.

There was a inexplicable hesitation as the white rose came officially into the frame of her gaze but she did ultimately reach for it and gingerly plucked it from his fingers. "Thank you." She was rarely ever gifted flowers, or gifts in general, so the gesture alone was perplexing though no less appreciated. Even if it felt unnecessary. "Of course." It was not the plants' fault that David had just-so-happened to be snatched up by merpeople. The wrong place at the wrong time, truly unlucky. "Your name appearing in the Daily Prophet was a firm confirmation," Valerie explained casually, though also with a hint of cheekiness. She could have offered more intimate explanations, such as him not stopping by the shop to restock on certain supplies (such as the fertilizer tucked against her chest), and it would have likely appeased that earnest twinkle to his eyes. The usual cut and dry Valerie Gray was what he received, however.

"This is for you." The fertilizer with a bow, which she now offered to him. Perhaps the allusion to his absence in shop would satisfy his curious twinkle further.

It wasn’t always paperwork and meetings, sometimes Hugo needed to get out of the office. In fact, sometimes he needed to get out of the Ministry completely. Today was one of those days. The letters on the pages of the reports he was had been reading were swimmings and swirling and nothing was sticking in his brain. So he’d grabbed his leather jacket and off he’d gone. His intent had been to get lunch…maybe at a street cart so he wouldn’t accidentally run into someone he’d feel forced to socialize with, but something about the fountain had drawn his attention. He stood on the edge of it, stroking his chin as he stared at a spout of water. Was it him or did the spout look like it was giving him the finger? Hmmm….

Just because he was no longer working at Slug and Jiggers didn’t mean Gideon didn’t find himself spending time in Diagon Alley much anymore. When he had the time that was. Work at Mungos often kept him busier than even the apothecary had, but he found he might just have landed where he should have. Took him long enough. But he had a free day and was strolling along the cobblestones, enjoying the brisk wintery weather that filled his birthday month and reminded him of good times.

Coming along the north end he was most familiar with, and the fountain that resided there outside the Leaky Cauldron, he spotted a man around his age looking curiously at said fountain. Perhaps a little too close. “I’d be careful…that fountain has an aggressive streak.” Well as aggressive as a thing could get that couldn’t physically move from place to place.

”Yes, well…” Hugo said, sparing a brief glance at the young(er) man who had spoken. His eyes darted back to the fountain again as the spout of water started making another gesture. ”That seems to be the consensus regarding water spigots around these parts.” He took a step to the left as a splurt of water was shot his way. He was going to add this fountain to his list of places his team needed to check for wayward jinxes, hexes, and curses. Maybe it was something with the water and until he found out, he wasn’t going to be drinking anything that wasn’t bottled.

”Tell me,” he said, turning to the young man. ”Have you had any unpleasant occurrences with said fountain?” One of his hands moved to his hip, shifting his jacket enough to show his MLE badge.

So, he knew of trouble but was still curious. His loss if he got soaked. Gideon was keeping his distance though couldn’t see himself just taking his leave of the scene after delivering his warning. It seemed he still had his knight-in-shining-armor behavior named by Selina even when he wasn’t working at saving people at work.

Oh, so Magical Law Enforcement was investigating the fountain…now?!

“Not in recent years.” He had learned to be wary of it until it became second nature to be just far enough away as to not summon whatever magic cause its actions towards the unsuspecting passerby. “Had a few incidents with it…” Gideon actually had to think how long it had been since he had been school shopping, “about 30 or so years back.” So yeah, it wasn’t exactly a recently begun issue. It could have easily gone on many many more years before that.

Not in recent years. Mmm… perhaps someone had done an investigation of this fountain then and had fixed – well, some of the problems. Because just then the fountain decided to spit at him. His head shook just a little, a movement that probably was not even perceivable really. The water splashed on the ground just short of his boots; he hadn’t moved. Hugo made a mental note to have his assistant pull all the files they could find when he got back to the office. He’d add it to the list of things he wanted his team to investigate this year. Did he have a paranoia regarding water? Yes. Yes Hugo did and it didn’t entirely stem from the fact that he could not swim. Nope, the events of the last year (or four) would probably leave him wary of water for the rest of his life. He just hoped it didn’t evolve to include showers.

No, that wouldn’t happen. Hugo’s next biggest fear was being smelly.

”Are there any other items around here that – exhibit similar behaviors?” Hugo spent as much time in Diagon Alley as the next wizard, but it didn’t hurt to ask others for their observations too.

And just like that, the other man was getting a taste of the fountain’s medicine. Gideon might have laughed at the absurdity of the situation had he not have his own prior experiences with the fountain as a child. He HAD warned him though. Not that his companion seemed to ruffled by the occurrence. No harm no foul just getting a little wet after all, not connecting the scene with the happenings the Prophet had made him aware of pertaining to the Atlantis situation.

“Not that I’m aware of,” he answered after a moment’s pause to think. Even as a former shopkeeper on the alley. Granted there had been interesting happenings but mostly from people and creatures and mostly before his time and passed on in stories. The close call of the mutants nearly destroying the ancient grimoire in Slug and Jiggers had nearly brought Nigel to tears in the sharing. "Some of the longer term shopkeepers might have more information."

As though David would risk getting this suit wet. As if! He was raised better than that (RIP, Mummy Dearest).

David pretended not to notice the hesitation and surprise from Valerie. All was well, thanks to her. "It's only the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. I owe you a great many more for ensuring my greenhouse's survival." If either of them were the hugging sort, now would be the time for a great long embrace. But as they weren't... a somber, stiff nod from David would have to do. And of course. She was a reader. How grateful he now was for that rubbish periodical known as The Daily Prophet.

And for the... fertilizer? "Merlin," David accepted the sack, carelessly wrapping his arms around it. There, there was the hug. A hug for the... manure. And there went the nice suit he wasn't keen to ruin. Oh well. "Really. You shouldn't have." He was practically beaming, radiating with joy at this gift now. Wow. Much emotion.

It was nothing personal. Hugo just didn’t trust easily. Years of working as a lawyer had taught him everyone had something to hide… Still, it was a funny way to put things Mr. Citizen. ’Is there a particular shopkeeper you recommend I visit?” For some reason, Hugo got the impression that this man either spent or had spent a lot of time in the Alley.

Gideon wasn’t aware of the skepticism he was been seen with for his answers were honest and done with no amount of trickery. However, when the law man asked him to elaborate on who might be helpful or perhaps troublesome that needed to be looked into, the potioner turned healer found himself giving in to his snarky Slytherin side with his answer. This time not hesitating.

“The Slug and Jigger’s shopkeeper….” He mused, thinking on the woman who had taken over from him and Nigel. She could do with being tested on being a shopkeeper and worthwhile member of the Diagon Alley community. Merlin knows he and his partner sure had been put through the wringer at times. “I believe her name is Walerka Balcerzak.”

I owe you a great many more for ensuring my greenhouse's survival." If either of them were the hugging sort, now would be the time for a great long embrace. But as they weren't... a somber, stiff nod from David would have to do. And of course. She was a reader. How grateful he now was for that rubbish periodical known as The Daily Prophet.

And for the... fertilizer? "Merlin," David accepted the sack, carelessly wrapping his arms around it. There, there was the hug. A hug for the... manure. And there went the nice suit he wasn't keen to ruin. Oh well. "Really. You shouldn't have." He was practically beaming, radiating with joy at this gift now. Wow. Much emotion.
How was she to know that there were not lingering side effects to his prolonged exposure under water? The Prophet had reported on certain Fountain of the Magical Brethren swimming shenanigans of a certain man David admired had mentioned once or twice in passing to her - hence her recognizing the name as her eyes had glazed over it wearily one morning over her morning coffee.

"It is merely the respect of one herbologist to another, David," she attempted to shrug off somewhat dismissively. His praise felt entirely overbearing for her act of good conscience. His work, research, and companions in vegetation meant a great deal to him - she did sometimes wonder if, knowing of his not so dearly departed mother, it was a means of holding on to the woman but on his own terms. "I can take it back to the shop if you insist," she badgered with the most subtle of amused smiles. Was it endearing that he was embracing the bag in such a manner? She would be remaining silent that answer. "There is a new shipment of hybrids that could benefit from this sophisticated blend of manure."

That smile just may be a bit more prominent now. Perhaps even reaching her eyes, for once.

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

To say that Claudine was over the moon that she had found a friend, and perhaps a mentor, was putting it mildly. She and Hady had hit it off the moment Claudine had joined Scamander’s Zoo as a veterinarian despite the age difference. Today, it seemed they were going to have some quality bonding time. She stood waiting by the fountain for her coworker with two cups in hand.

In the meanwhile, Claudine took the time to breathe in the summer air. It truly was remarkable to be home again. Her stay in Canada with Heath and his brother had been rather enjoyable the last four years but there was no place like home. She knew she and Heath would be settled in in no time and it would be like they never left. With their careers falling into place {hopefully she would be accepted as a columnist for the Prophet too!}, this could not have been better.

Not only kids liked summer break. Professors enjoyed it as well. time to be at home with her husband and all of their children was nice. Attending special family celebrations and birthdays. These were all times she didn't want to miss but being away at Hogwarts for most of the year, well she didn't always get to be there for everything. So summer meant cramming in as much as she could, when time allowed for it.

Like today. She was spending some time with a a friend that she had met through work, who seemed to be following in her footsteps. At least for now. Anything creature related and she was all in. Hady made her way towards the fountain where she was meant to be meeting up with Claudine, a warm smile on her face. "Hey, I hope I'm not late. I had to make sure that my youngest wasn't to hyped up before I handed her off to her brother who is taking her out for a few hours today." Hence how she got the afternoon to herself.

Oh, indeed Claudine was following in Hady’s footsteps. At least up to the part with being a veterinarian. You see, even though she had been voted ‘Most Likely To Return To Hogwarts As A Professor' in her final year, she still could not see herself ever fulfilling this superlative. Despite her improving and having an easier time being social with others, the thought of having to deal with so many pre-teens and teens… yes, she was content with being a vet. And Hady’s new friend.

“Hi!’’ Claudine beamed, somewhat eager to be on her best and most mature behaviour around the woman as always. It was perhaps only the second time that the younger woman wanted to impress someone so badly, the first being her wanting to impress Heath’s family. “Coffee for you.” Claudine held out a cup; the other contained her favourite caramelatte. “You’re not. Um, your youngest sounds… scary?” Excuse her, Hady. She was just weary of kids and the prospect of motherhood did frighten her. “Want to sit for a bit? But we’ve got to offer coins first.”

The funny thing about this was, Hady had never wanted to be a professor either. Her entire life all she had ever dreamed of being was a veterinarian and magizoologist. Despite what some of her friends, family and even a past professor or two had thought. Yet here she was, a Hogwarts professor. It felt so right though and she was still doing something she loved, caring for creatures on a daily basis.

The young woman's smile didn't go unnoticed and neither did the offering of coffee, still one of Hady's most favorite drinks ever! If a day passed where she wasn't drinking a cup, something had to be wrong. "For me? Thank you so much! Next time, will be my treat." The brunette smiled happily accepting the drink and taking a nice sip. "Mm' this is very good." Normally she was into iced coffee but she might be onto something here with this.

As for her youngest being scary. OMG! Some might be offended by that remark but not her. Hadleigh understood. And she knew exactly what Bryony was. "Bryony is very spirited." Yes, that was one way of putting things without going into too much detail on how animated her youngest could be at times. Perhaps it was best not to frighten the young woman in her company from ever having children of her own someday. "Sitting sounds like a wonderful idea." And not to worry, she remembers very well about the offerings this fountain requires.

Ah.

Did it mean, then, that if Claudine were to continue looking up to Hady as a mentor that she would someday indeed have that superlative come to pass? She did not want to think about that right then so all thoughts of such were pushed away. Instead, Claudine grinned. “I can live with that. Otherwise it’ll just come off as me bribing you to share all of your magizoology tips.” Hm? She was totally an angel over here and not at all into bribery.

“Is that a synonym for wild and energetic?” Genuinely curious, she asked the question as an offering of a coin was made to the fountain. Curious because Claudine knew that someday Heath wanted kids of his own. Maybe now was a good time as ever to really make a move on studying the behaviour of young humans, which was probably more difficult than that of young creatures.

One could never really say for sure what the world had in store for them. Sometimes it has a way of going very differently than what you wanted for yourself. Other times life played out exactly as planned. What Hady did know though, was that she wouldn't change a thing. Everything that had ever happened in her life was what made her into the woman she is today. "It's not bribery if I'm happy to share what I know." When it came to her knowledge of creatures, Hady was always thrilled to pass on all that she knew to anyone that was willing to lend an ear.

There was a small moment of laughter. "I like to call her active but I suppose some might think she's a tad on the 'wild' side. She's very high energy and always moving." Her youngest daughter was many things but she always thought it was best for people to meet Bryony. However she loved talking about all of her kids and was happy to answer anything Claudine may have been curious about.

It had been a while since Ruby Broadmoor had visited Diagon Alley. It wasn’t that the brunette didn’t enjoy perusing the shop windows and investigating the latest trends in the Wizarding world, it was more a lack of free time to be able to do so. Diagon had always held a special place in her heart coming from a multi-generational family who had bringing the thirty-four year old to the street practically since she was born. It was where she had bought all her school supplies before attending Hogwarts, where she had met with friends old and new for ice creams in the summer and when her younger siblings and dear cousins were old enough where she had been tasked with the responsibility of keeping the unruly Broadmoors and Ackerly’s in check. The street had remained mostly unchanged since her childhood days and for that reason it still held important memories. It was a shame that she didn’t have an excuse to visit anymore now that her brothers brewed her potions and she hadn’t sat on a broom for years.

Having been in the area that morning and with an hour or two to spare before she had dinner plans with her sister, the former Ravenclaw headed through the Leaky Cauldron entrance and out into the street. The street was quiet now that the children had gone back to school, not that Ruby would’ve minded had it been full of the beaming faces of excited kids eager to get back into education for she was as maternal as her mother Trixie was and would have happily gone back to school herself if she could. Sadly she had yet to have had children of her own however and despite sharing a beautiful home in Chelsea with Tabitha, it did feel a little empty.

She headed straight towards her favourite shop Flourish and Blotts in the hope that she would be able to pick up a new novel to read for a couple of hours perched on a bench somewhere. You could take the girl out of Ravenclaw but it was obvious that you could never take the Ravenclaw out of the girl. To her disappointment she had realised she had left her purse at St Mungos where she had picked up the morning shift. The Mediwitch quickly turned on her heels and walked in the direction of the fountain to perch for a short while and people watch hoping that perhaps Tabby might be early too.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Ashley was in Diagon Alley to buy... something. She forgot what. She probably didn't need it that badly, then. If she had to guess, it would have been a book. What kind of book? She sat down on the edge of the fountain and hoped the answer would come to her. She pulled out an art notebook and started sketching her reflection from the water. She was very focused, until the fountain spit water right into her face.

She was startled, to say the least, almost startled enough to fall. It was humiliating. And her drawing got a little wet. She tossed a galleon into the fountain. "Leave me alone," she whispered, softly. It could be seen that her hair was already dry again. It was something she had learned wandlessly, now the fifth thing she could do that way. It was very useful. Take that, fountain.

She turned to the woman sitting near her. "This fountain doesn't know anything about anything," she said, with the general tone of someone who was very sure they just knew about these things.

Had Ruby not been so engrossed in watching a parent taking her young child out shopping, she might have heard the young woman beside her talking to the fountain. She wasn’t sure whether she was merely lucky or she had done something in her youth to gain the fountains favour but she has never been the target of a stray spray. She hoped that today would not be that day either considering she had forgotten to bring her coins with her.

She was brought out of her trance by the sound of the woman speaking this time in her direction. “Hmm?” she looked up to see her looking directly at her. “Oh dear, did the fountain decide to target you?” The brunette smiled softly. “It does that from time to time. I find it helps to greet the Cherubs first before sitting down.” Whether that actually worked in her favour she wasn’t sure but it had been something her mother had always taught her and so far it had been successful.

Perhaps her mother had actually bribed the fountain long ago to not target the Broadmoors, Trixie had always been one step ahead when it came to matters concerning her family. She hadn’t heard of her twin brothers being targeted and Merlin knew that the boys would’ve absolutely lost their cool if it had. The Mediwitch glanced down at the sketchbook in the young lady’s hand. “I hope it didn’t ruin your work,” she commented.

"It always targets me when I forget to bribe it. I bet it doesn't like me. I bet..." she trailed off. She bet that it was a conspiracy by the universe to make her life inconvenient. However, that was not something she admitted out loud. "anyways. I dislike this fountain." And yet... she sat here a lot. It was a good place to sit. She eyed the cherubs with suspicion. She felt watched. Also, one of them was headless. "I will try greeting them when I sit here next."

"Huh? Oh..." Ashley looked down at her sketchbook, considering the spots of water carefully. "Well... it's kind of wet now. However... it's a sketch of my reflection in the water, so..................................... I think it adds to it for it to be stained with water." She had been frowning, but now she smiled a little. As long as the art was alright, so was she.
