Default North Side of the Street


Diagon Alley runs along a crooked, narrow street. Along the North Side, of course, are the shopfronts. Large glass windows display hot items, special objects, advertise for sales, and encourage people to come in. The path is incredibly tight and overhangs of buildings on either side threaten to touch the building across from it. People walk packed together, as they try to maneuver around groups of people, vending carts, and holes in the cobble road. Be careful of doors opening so that you don’t walk into them by accident.

Outside the Leaky Cauldron entrance is a large, outlandish fountain which threatens to take up the walk. Once one gets around the fountain, the path tightens and the surge of people begins. Bump, jostle, and nudge people as you move around – it's okay, really. Balconies and overhangs create a bright array of color as one meanders down the street. The noise level is cluttered – yelling comes from the hawkers, from the food vendors, from people calling to one and other. Much like a festival, the atmosphere is nearly tangible; electric and festive. Don’t forget to close your eyes and breathe in. Popcorn, kebabs, soup, bread; so many food smells fill the air with a pungent scent.

He had been out wondering around when he came closer to the stairs of Knockturn Alley. He couldn't help but have an impulse to head down them. What if he saw any of the people that were fighting at the school? What if he saw the person that killed his father? He would have never recognized the person, but Elias was determined to figure it out.

As a kid he didn't know if the person got away or was caught, he just knew what he saw and what Torrance had told him. That was not something he wanted to get over, he was becoming harder and harder to stop thinking about it, but he couldn't just go down there, not with Torrance and his brother somewhere close by. He thought he had lost them, but did he really?

Noah had no reason to be in Diagon Alley. He didn't need anything because he wasn't going back to school for third year, and there was nothing else he wanted here anyway, and he didn't want to see anyone he knew either. That was why he'd asked to get out of the house for a while, except it was also because he needed a change of scenery and also to know he was not trapped. Which he wasn't. But he always felt like he was. But he wasn't. But he was. But just in a different way.

The fact that he'd been having a good day meant that a Diagon Alley trip was possible, but Noah knew he was still being watched like a hawk. Even though there was that urge to suddenly spring up and run, he was fighting it with everything he had, the same way he tried to fight it and behave for Lori and the care workers, except those were fights that never lasted long and ones he always lost, usually because too much of him didn't actually want to win.

Even though it was a bad idea in such a crowded street, Noah had settled himself so that he was sitting on the floor right under a shop window, staring down the street in the direction of the steps to Knockturn Alley. That was where he'd go, he knew, if he decided to run, but he wasn't going to. He was just looking - staring - and twirling a lock his hair around a finger, and thinking but not thinking but thinking and remaining at high risk of being very much in the way.

Ash was walking along, not in that bad of a mood. Not in a good mood, but not yet a bad mood. She had slept well the night before- with the help of potions, and stories, and reassurances, and her favorite blanket, and a facetime call with her best best best friend. It took a lot to be okay. But fresh air definitely helped, which was why Ashley Calder Fox was walking outside alone today. She was not particularly on her guard, but she still noticed someone sitting, staring at a certain alleyway. Not that that was suspicious- it just caught her eye. That someone happened to be Noah Fence. Not a close friend, or someone she particularly talked to very often, but an interesting person and not someone she hated. Yet. So she decided to be sociable, just in case anyone was wondering if being stuck in a mirror made her antisocial. "Hey Noah. What's up?" Oh no, why did she not have a good avenue of conversation/small talk prepared? She could be caught off guard with an uncomfortable question about her overall well-being. Terrible. She seized on the only good thing she could think of. "Have you seen my temporary tattoo yet?" She sat down next to him, payback for when her sat on her trunk without asking a really long time ago. Even. Now what to do? She didn't have a topic of conversation prepared. But she liked to talk, so maybe she would find something. Maybe this wouldn't be a traumatizing conversation. Maybe.

A curious thing kept happening whenever anyone addressed Noah by name, in that sometimes it took a moment for him to connect Noah the name with Noah the person. He didn't forget it was his, but sometimes it took a moment to register. Other times he tried to fight it. Other times still it was nothing more than a word, so maybe he did forget it. Or he would hear it and the red mist would descend, though he was still looking for a better word for what happened than 'red mist' because that phrase didn't measure up at all. And sometimes it was fine and he was Noah and that was his name.

Anyway. Today was one of those times where Noah heard the name and looked towards the speaker, knowing it was him they were talking to. "Hi Ash," he returned the greeting quietly, and then paused, because he was never sure how to answer a 'what's up' question even at the best of times. In the end, he just ignored it.

Ash needn't have worried about those kind of personal questions; Noah did not tend to ask people how they were, apart from a few exceptions, and even then it took conscious effort to remember. Not to mention, this past year had turned into a huge, near inaccessible memory, with bits and pieces slipping through at certain times. Noah didn't mind, though a year ago the very prospect would have sent him into an extended panic attack. He knew, now, that there were reasons people forgot things, or had memories taken, and that fighting to remember was always a bad idea. Something had happened to Ash, he knew that much, but Noah made no effort to try and recall what it was. He supposed that meant he was getting smarter.

"No." The tattoo. He'd not seen her, and therefore not seen it. Noah looked at her, now sat right beside him, and blinked his big grey eyes once. "What's a temporary tattoo? Why'd you get one?" Ash was always drawing on her hands and arms in classes. Maybe it had something to do with that.

Ash didn't really care if Noah answered her question or not. Most people who answered said something depressing, and then asked for her answer, which was also inevitably depressing. It was tiring.

But tattoos never made Ash sad. In fact, they made her almost happy. Almost. "You know what a tattoo is, right? It's like when you put ink into your skin to make a permanent picture. And I want one, but that would be illegal at my age. So I got a temporary one, which goes on top of your skin and comes off eventually. But I got a ton of them, so every time it comes off, I can just reapply it." She was not going to let the fact that this tattoo was called a temporary tattoo stop her from basically making it permanent. She rolled up her sleeve. There were lots of things on her arm other than tattoos. Wand holster, crystal bracelets, and burn scars, to name a few. But the best one was her plain black/grey tattoo of a phoenix. "I wanted to get one of a phoenix, because I thought it would be symbolic. Also, my name is Ash, and ashes turn into phoenixes. Or maybe it's the other way around." Maybe Ashley Fox was a phoenix, and when she died she turned into Ash. That was a sad thought, and Ash locked it in a box deep in her brain. She would cry about it later. "Also it just looks cool. I'm going to make it permanent one day." Who cared if people didn't want her to get a tattoo at a young age (or an old one)? It was legal at 16, so she was gonna get one at 16. At least this one meant something hopeful to her. Maybe Ashley Fox would come back. Maybe she would rise from the Ashes.

Noah nodded. He knew about tattoos, yes, had seen them, knew the concept, even if he didn't totally understand it. Like most things, he failed to really grasp the point, but had come to understand that some people liked having their own decorations even if it wasn't something that made sense to him. Like how Victor liked to sketch and Oliver liked to paint and Mariposa liked to do puzzles and most of the residents at Stemp House had things decorating their bedrooms. He still struggled to understand why people liked the things he didn't, but Noah had moved past constantly challenging and questioning those things. For the most part.

"Aren't those drawings you do on your arms also like that?" he asked Ash, staring at the phoenix she showed him. She had other things there too, personality things. Noah's own arms were bare. "What's the difference between an arm drawing and a temporary tattoo?" Noah did not set too much store by symbolism either, and for the most part understood it even less than other people's interests, but it was another of those things he knew meant a lot to others. The closest thing he had was Phantom, and that was not something he had ever been able to put into words.

This was an okay interaction though. It was definitely a distraction from the building urge to run-...

At the thought, Noah's eyes flicked towards Knockturn Alley again.

At the thought, Noah's eyes flicked towards Knockturn Alley again.
"I mean, kinda? But temporary tattoos are easier to put on, harder to take off, designed to put on your skin, and you don't need to be good at drawing to get one. Plus, it's really hard to draw the same drawing twice, but temporary tattoos are exactly the same." So they were slightly more permanent. "And they don't make it any harder to move, and they don't rub off on furniture, and... people don't look at you weird when you have one. They do look at you weird if they see you drawing on your skin using actual drawing stuff." Yeah, Ash was trying to stop doing things that other people saw as red flags. Getting visibly obsessed with everything having to be slightly different, denying that she needed therapy, mentioning that she had trouble sleeping. Yeah, people didn't need to know about stuff like that. Or else they would be "comforting"(condescending).

Ash's eyes flicked in the direction of Knockturn Alley as Noah's did. "If I walked in there, would I get hurt?" She had never been in there, because it wasn't safe for muggleborns. But how Unsafe was it, exactly? Like rude-comments-unsafe or like murder-unsafe? She didn't wanna find out firsthand, but she would like to know. If it was murder-unsafe, they should shut it down. Or maybe the Wizard government was in on the whole dark-magic thing and just didn't care. That made sense. They never did.

If you happened to be in Diagon Alley that day, you might notice a petite woman with flaming red hair making her way up the street with a very relucant goat. Finally the animal came to a dead stop and planted its feet determinedly--determined not to go another step further.

"Now, Bruno," Pippa said earnestly to him, leaning down to look into his strange, goat eyes, "London will be better than you think, you'll see. I know it looks crowded with buildings from here, but just wait till we get to our shop. There's a lovely little garden in back--well, not exactly little", she went on, lowering her voice. "Actually I used an enhancing charm to make it bigger than it looks. You'll love it!"

Bruno considered this, looking searchingly at her with first one eye, then the other, and finally emitting a doleful "Neaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!"

To say she had been procrastinating would be an understatement. Bette Arbutus strode through the streets of Diagon Alley, her heels clicking beneath her. A trip she was hoping to make over a month or two ago but wanted to wait for the pesky Hogwarts students to be carted off to school first. She'd spent a little while in Madam Malkins, searching for a few sophisticated looks, but they all fell a little flat. Sometimes going to the muggle shops was a bit more suited to her style, so she made a note to stop by a few of those shortly.

Since the scheduled rain had yet to arrive, Bette chose to grab a latte. to go, and brought it with her through the alley. She took a sip and leaned against the wall, watching the adults around her, sporting a slight frothy moustache from the beverage.

He lamented that Cohen favorite the air here in the United Kingdom over that of their homeland of France, but perhaps now that university had not panned out the manned in which the blonde had envisioned that Darius could convince his partner to move back. Darius yearned for branches and leaves of the Sainte Victoire and the family left behind there. While he was certain that the colony was thriving, the sage had told him so, he still missed Danethon and Thaelesilea...and the feathers and root they would braid into his hair.

But, since he was confined to this air for now, he would simply have to make the best of the cards he had been dealt - and the former Papillonlisse was fluent in indulgence.

Dressed a little more polished than yesterday, Darius made his way down the quaint streets of Diagon Alley simply taking the sights in. He had passed by these shop windows a finite handful of times but he had not taken the time to properly take a gander at anything. In fact, the last time he had been here he had been peddling his teas and offering tarot readings. Though the latter had mostly been for the Non–Magiques who were more likely to pay a premium for such things.

Prancing along, his rich chocolate eyes fell upon an elegant creature and her latte. "It's becoming on you."

Every pedestrian in Diagon Alley always looked interesting to Bette, as magic folk tended to represent themselves in a certain way which was different to muggles. She often people watched and thought about others' stories as they walked by, their loved ones and histories. She'd yet to create roots here in England, it was difficult and very slow, but she always knew it would be. Diagon Alley was always a safe place that was pretty easy to navigate, so Bette liked to linger around here whilst she found her feet.

OOps.

The breeze caused her upper lip to get a bit of a chill, when she realised she had a frothy moustache. The brunette quickly fixed herself up and giggled to herself.

She was surprised that her people watching skills weren't up to par when she was approached unexpectedly by a stranger. Her eyes widened, mid sip, at the bearded mans comment, making sure to graciously wipe her mouth when she pulled the cup from her lips. "Mm." GULP. "I hope you're not referring to the moustache," Bette rather hoped that being a young, fashionable French lady was a look that was becoming.

Just as Pippa thought she had things sorted out, Bruno made a sudden lunge toward a young pair of well-put-together folks strolling down the street. She hastily made a grab for him.

"Watch out for the goat! sorry," she called out.

That same wind sent Darius' hair in a whirlwind of silky black that brushed across his face and danced in the breeze. As soon as it ceased, the hair was settled back into position without a strand out of place and almost looking shinier than it had been before. It was something coined as the 'Darius Effect' by some and others would proclaim that sparkles literally followed him everywhere like the rugged fairy he was. Not a literal fairy, of course. That was the wrong beast.

"Actually, that was precisely what I was referring to...and more," he replied with an easy smile and accompanied elegant flip of the hair over his shoulder. "A display of enjoyment and indulgence and you wore it qui----"

The sudden appearance of a goat cut Darius off, though his sharp reflexes had him turning towards the tasty morsel before its horns nor eager teeth could find their way to the French gentleman's threads. While fond of goats as they were, he preferred his Goat Bourguignon.

Or rare.

In either case, Darius had pivoted and his long, elegant, fingers were reaching out to coil around the horns to steady the creature and allow for its handler to recapture them.

Maybe it was the fact that there were strangers in the street, maybe it was the man's hands reaching towards him, or maybe it was the sudden gleam in the man's eye (the gleam that a predator gets when it sees dinner)--whatever the reason, Bruno suddenly stopped, planted all four feet firmly on the walk, and skidded to a dead stop.

Unfortunately, Pippa was following him at full speed and when he halted, she ran into the goat, tripped, and sailed over him, head first toward the sidewalk. But at the last minute, she turned the tumble into a somersault and landed lightly in a squatting position. From there, she just sat in the middle of the walkway and started laughing out loud.

Looking up at the elegant pair, she said, "Sorry about that, Bruno's just nervous about moving to a new home. We're just moving into the Magical Menagerie this week. Hope we didn't frighten you." This last was said as Pippa glanced over at the fashionable young woman--was she French? They both had that sort of air that French people had. Pippa remembered people like that during her one brief year at Beauxbatons. She had never manged to acquire that elegant manner herself.

His hair was quite mesmerising to watch, actually, especially when blowing in the wind like that. Very... alluring. Bette tucked her own hair behind her ear and took another sip from her latte, a clean sip, this time. She laughed a little when he confirmed he had seen the latte moustache. Eh, not the best introductions but it could've been worse. "Oh, dear--" Thankfully, a goat stumbled upon them to change the subject....

Wait.... what?

A goat stumbled upon them. Soon to be followed by a woman who came tumbling after it, "Oh my goodness, are you okay?!" Actually, the woman handled the situation like a gymnast. Bette couldn't help but smile a little. "That was... impressive." What a strange situation to unfold in front of her. Was this a normal occurrence in London?

"Bette, by the way." She introduced herself, looking to both of them, then towards the goat who she reached out her hand for. "May I?" Give the goaty a stroke, she meant.

Bruno turned his gaze to the beautiful, nice-smelling woman who was reaching an elegant hand toward him in a respectful manner, totally unlike the man who had startled him with his hungry gaze. Bruno would very much like to be petted by such a lovely creature, and he answered for Pippa in a cheerful but gentle bleat--"Neeeeeaaaah!"

Pippa laughed again and rose nimbly to her feet. "My name's Pippa Weatherbee, I own the Magical Menagerie. We'll be open for business in a bit, as soon as I get Bruno settled in the back garden." She looked fondly down at her goat, who was looking rather smitten with his new friend, Bette. "And I think Bruno is saying that he'd love to have you pet him."

Bruno need not worry about Darius tearing him apart with his bare hands, it was entirely too late in the month for such things, but he was nonetheless pleased that the goat had come to a complete stop. Though the reflexes and gymnastic performance of their handler came as a pleasant surprise. "And were you an artiste de cirque before?" he inquired, quite mesmerized by the redheaded woman and whose goat he had uncoiled his fingers from around the horns. "Such elegance and poise, not unlike a doe leaping through the forest, must come with an intriguing history."

His eyes shifted to his other female companion, the one who effortlessly made latte moustaches look alluring, and found himself all the more enticed as she seemed to have a way with creatures. Though he had never seen goats be particularly choosey when it came to humans. Bette, her name, easily committed to memory.

As was Pippa's in his next breath.

"And I am known as Darius Enzo Medysius Lacroix," he introduced. And since Bette's hand was currently occupied by their new four legged acquittance, he offered a hand towards Pippa first. To, of course, place a kiss to the back of hers and kiss to both her cheeks. Bette need not fret, she was next. As soon as she had finished with the goat.

"Yes, I was an animal trainer with the Magical Mystical Circus for nine years. Mostly creature acts, but I had a friend who was a clown and they taught me a few tricks," Pippa replied, still chuckling. Since Bruno seemed subdued (and quite mesmerized) with Bette, she felt safe i n offering a hand back, ready for a firm handshake, but quite unprepared for the very French greeting that was in store for her. The incongruity of it all struck her and she started laughing again.

GASP.

She was meeting the owner of the Magical Menagerie, whatEVER that meant, but it sounded important. Bette smiled politely as Pippa agreed to her petting the lil goat cutie. “Hello, little guy.” Bette tickled under its chin, then gave it plenty of head strokes. Maybe she’d applied for the wrong department!

Tuning back into conversation between Pippa and Darius, Bette stood up straight to listen a little more closely, still lightly patting the little goaty. “Amazing, what type of things did you do?” She hadn’t been to a circus since she was a child, but nowadays, she want sure she liked the thought about animals in the circus. Still, she kept her opinions to herself at this point.

Ooh, little butterflies when Darius introduced himself so elegantly. “Pleasure to meet you, Darius.” Bette didn’t even think about offering her hand out to the man. If he was offering hand and cheek kissys then she wasn’t going to miss out. “I can’t help but detect some française in you, am I correct?” She knew she was, but it’d be rude to assume.

Pippa would love nothing better than to talk about all the wonderful things she and her animal friends used to do for the amazement and delight of the wizarding public. But, looking back and forth between this handsome couple, both so very French, she suddenly got the feeling that they had other things to discuss, and that three was a crowd.

Besides, she needed to get back to her store, get Bruno settled in his new home, and prepare things in her new shop before customers started arriving.

"Oh, we did all sorts of wonderful, fun things, me and the animals--but that's a long story, and I'm sure you two have things to do. I really need to get back to the shop and get Bruno settled in. Stop by if you're int he market for a pet--we have dogs, cats, kneazles, pygmy puffs--pretty much everything except owls. And restricted creatures, of course." Pippa regretted this last just a bit, as there were some creatures that she would love to have a go with--not all restricted creatures were bad, after all!

"Come on, Bruno, you've hogged the center of attention for long enough. It's time for your dinner. And goodbye, all," She continued, looking up at Bette and Darius as she gently but firmly put a hand on the goat's head. "I hope you enjoy your trip to Diagon Alley." And waving cheerfully, Pippa continued on down the street with a now-obedient Bruno until she stopped before one of the shop doors, opened it with a large brass key, and disappeared with her goat inside.
