Default Park Bench


Placed strategically along the north side of the street, there are about five park benches on either side of the street offering a place for the weary to rest their tired feet for a moment. There is one situated between Potage's Cauldron Shop and Slug and Jiggers Apothecary, one between Madam Malkin's and Flourish and Blotts - and then on the opposite side of the street, between Magical Menagerie and Eeylops Owl Emporium, and Quality Quidditch Supplies and Scribbulus Writing Implements. The fifth bench is right before Gringotts Wizarding Bank, clearly placed there to let you know you've reached where the street begins to curve.

Take a seat and take a load off if you like, these benches are the perfect spots to sit and chat with friends while you take a break from shopping, or if you've come from Florean's you might be looking for a spot that you can sit and finish off your ice cream before it melts. Try not to be a bench hog though - if you're here for too long the benches themselves might get sick of you and nudge you off so that somebody else can sit for a while too!

I have an addiction to cheddar cheese. But it's only mild. Ever tried to eat a clock? It's time-consuming.

Torrance finished some shopping at Eeylop's. Picking up some treats for his Owl. The Summer was only just starting for him still. Work was slow and he couldn't find anything to help him pass the time. If he was left to his thoughts for too long they began to wander back to that sad place in that terrible moment. He stopped at one of the benches and placed the bag down onto it's seat. Looking at it briefly then started to pace around the bench. Trying to fill him mind with some of the most mundane pointless thoughts. Pulling himself out of reality as he focused on his steps and whatever it was he was trying to block from coming back to him.

He would need a seriously good distraction right about now.

Know who was always a good idea for a distraction? Sachiko.

So she would have you think at least. Though these days she found herself feeling less temptress and more ... something not that. The majority of her time now in France, the shift in atmosphere had been present but nothing that had touched her negatively. She did have her connections with well-to-do pureblood families still and her natural charisma got her through most situations. Still, the impact was there and she had seen a thing or two on the midnight streets of Paris.

Back in the UK for a fashion show, the direct request from a designer she often worked intimately with, Sachiko was dressed down for the day (minus her favorite pair of deep crimson stilettos to keep is classy) and walking the streets of Diagon Alley. It felt more and more poor around here with every time she returned, though a part of her still felt a fondness for the area. The Leaky Cauldron, after all, had been where she had been born.

Heels clicking against the stone, she spotted a familiar face and felt her insides knot a bit. Torrance Spades. Ugh. She had NOT forgotten how he too was among the long list of people who had discarded her, the most recent of piles of dragon dung being David Truebridge who she had taken great pleasure is ripping apart in the tabloids despite knowing full well he would never see, and she had half a mind to turn and walk away. Until she saw IT. Then she had this urge to SHRIEK. "...why do you hate style so much?"

That bloody rattail he insisted on sporting was an insult on humanity. Ew.

Yes! He was getting into a groove. He found the perfect pace to walk around this park bench deep in thought. He was creating a literal groove in the path he walked. It felt good to cloud his head with thoughts that would pull him out of reality.

Like, it's crazy how soda's are made. All that crazy amount of carbon dioxide that goes into bubbling up the water until it gets all fizzy. But we humans breathe out carbon dioxide into the air. How much time would they need to breathe into water to make it a Soda? If they put a bunch of people into a pool and told them all to blow into the water many of them would it take until it got carbonated? What if Fish breathed out co2? Would they be able to carbonate all the oceans in the world.

Or, shirt tags. Why were they still a thing? Haven't they evolved beyond that. There were shirts that no longer used tags and some that did. The Tags were so bothersome against the neck. Always felt like there was something trying to cling to your neck like a spider or any other insect. Then again, he saw the benefit in tags. The shirts that went tag-less you'd be a fool in public if you were caught with your shirt inside-out and those tags were a good quick catch to make sure you reversed it right away. Torrance was no fool.

Insects!! Like Preying Mantis'... Manti? Was it Mantises Manti? What was the plural? He liked Manti bet... and then he was thrust out of his thoughts. Stopping in his tracks when he heard that same angry tone of voice yelling at him. "Sa-Sachiko?"

His style?! What was wrong with his style? Torrance was pretty sure his style was good. He especially liked this shirt. It wasn't tacky at all. No wait...ah was she still on about his rat tail?! He lightly tugged on it but then put his hands down. "I'm not getting ride of it, Sachiko." He liked it very much so.

Besides look at that tiny jacket! It was so tiny!! Jackets aren't supposed to be tiny! They're supposed to cover you.

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

As much as he liked Diagon Alley, he would be glad to be back at home again after having done half of their shopping for the day . But his older brother had said he had forgotten to buy an item and had told Daniel to wait on the park bench for him. Leaving an eleven year old alone, tsk . He was SO going to tell mother about this later.

He was enjoying his time alone though. The weather was pleasant and while wearing his favorite sunglasses on his face and holding an strawberry ice cream in his hand , Daniel was reading a book that was placed on his lap. The book in question was his first grade potion textbook and while he flipped to the first page , he took a bite from his ice cream.

Ash had a great outfit on today. She had the blue jeans, the white tshirt, and the expensive leather jacket. It was great. But she didn't feel great. She was all alone, wandering around Diagon Alley by herself unhappily. Yay. She slouched onto a bench. If her father acted like a dad, maybe she wouldn't be alone. But she wanted to be alone. Authority sucked. She was going to go wherever she wanted and do whatever she wanted. Ha ha ha.

Well, she wasn't alone. There was some kid sitting there. Figured. She nodded at him, and then almost went to go make brooding faces and sit alone for an hour. But wait. Kid looked familiar. Who did he look like? She couldn't place it, but she was gonna find out. "I used to read stuff. When I was a kid." There. Conversation. Now he would tell her who he was or whatever.

This kid was reading a book. Book. Bookstore. A beginner? Like someone who can't read? Because I know some good kids books. Oh! Minjae. He had a brother, didn't he? This must be it. Mystery done. Now she could go and sit looking like a cross between a troublemaker and a generally sad person. Oh wait. She was already doing that. Nevermind. She would just sit here and keep doing that then.

Besides look at that tiny jacket! It was so tiny!! Jackets aren't supposed to be tiny! They're supposed to cover you.
She remembered how once, back when they were 11 or 13 or whatever young age where they didn't know how messed up and cruel the world was, him going off into some nonsensical ramble about the color red. Red dye? It had been over a box of Bertie Beans and, truth be told, Sachiko had only been maybe a fraction of a fourth of a percent paying attention to it all. It was a red bean, probably cherry, and he had made this whole THING about it and something about how it made him hyper.

...she was, likewise, annoyed that she even remembered all that.

Some people had this way of weaseling themselves in despite her best efforts to push them out.

And she was NOT yelling, for the record. Not externally at least. Inside her head she was shrieking like a banshee and causing all the glass of the surrounding shops to shatter because of her pitch. But that was in her head. For now. Him flaunting the offensive rat tail, HOWEVER, was pushing the already thin envelope.

"You shirt is fine. Childlike prints are in this season, though I would never be caught in them unless I was being paid to." Which she had been, but not today. "It matches and accentuates your skin as well as flatters your figure." She saw that little peek-a-boo of his chest, thank you very much. "Just...THAT THING...it looks so ridiculous. You may as well shave the shape of a rat on the back of your head. I SWEAR you only keep it because you know it irritates me."

This was, for the record, her way of expressing that she was glad to see him and that she had missed him. She was just terrible, as always, to express herself.

Louise had never been so happy for summer break. Normally she would have spent the whole summer outside, but this being a very, very different year, she had actually spent a lot of it inside with her parents. She had missed them like crazy when she had been locked up in Hogwarts with everyone else. But that time at home had really done her well - she looked less tired and she had definitely gained back the weight she lost in that dark room with all of her mum's cooking.

Now her goal was to work on getting some color back into her skin, which was why she was spending a good amount of time outside today. She had just left Florean's with a strawberry milkshake and took outside to soak in the sun. Louise didn't dare sit by the fountain, despite how pretty it looked, and instead sat on an empty bench so she could people watch with her milkshake.

Taking another bite from his hazelnut flavored ice cream (his favorite!) , Daniel flipped the page of his potions textbook and continued reading even when an older girl had moved towards the bench. It was not his bench of course so he said nothing as she sat down next to him. In fact, he completely ignored her.

Being completely absorbed in reading about the Sleeping Draught potion, Daniel earmarked the textbook for future reference before he glanced sideways at the girl as she spoke. " Good for you" he commented. "You do know there is a universal rule not to bother someone who is reading , right?" and if there wasn't there should be. "Who are you even?"

Ash shrugged. "Yeah, I guess. I don't abide by rules though. If we want to get technical on the 'rules' of reading, you shouldn't be dog-earing books. But like I said, nobody needs to play by rules they don't create for themselves. Go ahead and dog-ear all of those pages if you want." She didn't make his personal rules for him, and had no interest in doing so, so she didn't care. "I'm Ash. Ravenclaw, or whatever. Mostly just a third year Muggleborn. Who are you?" She did not mention that she kinda knew who he was. She created her own rules, and one of them was that you pretended not to know people if they didn't know you. It was creepy otherwise. And that was just the truth.

While the girl talked about the 'technical rules of reading' Daniel ate the last bit of his ice cream and when she was done he had finished eating as well "Aw man" he said in a sad tone knowing that if he wanted a different one he had to walk back to the icecream parlor. It was also obvious that he had not listened to a word that Ash had said about dog-earing books and ...whatever.

"My brother said i am a Muggleborn as well" he replied as this had caught his attention "And that i should be proud of it" he rolled his eyes because who cared? "What's it like being in Ravenclaw or 'whatever'?" he asked, closing his potions textbook for now because he had the feeling that he would not be able to read any more.

"I'm Daniel" he answered with a shrug of his shoulders. If she wanted to know more she had to ask. He was not an open book.

Ash laughed. "I am proud of it. The last time I lied about my blood status, I got a few more scars. On my face. Don't want more of those." She frowned. Lucien Rosier and his dumb face and dumb ideas and DUMB RULES. He sucked, and she did not lose any sleep over his death. But no, it would not do to admit her life problems to some kid just because he was related to Minjae (who was the best and she totally trusted him if she wanted to cry). So she put the smile back up, a safeguard. "Being in Ravenclaw is like being in a random house, but people expect you to be smart, and you have to answer riddles to get into your room." She rolled her eyes. "Some people think I should be in Gryffindor instead, but that's just incorrect." She WASN'T DUMB (neither were Gryffindors). She just was reckless and bored. Different things. Nope. She was not going to ruin her own mood. NOT HAPPENING. She put the smile back up. "Daniel... oh, I think... You're Minjae's brother, right?" This thought process was fake, obviously. She had already deduced who he was. Slightly entitled, looked like Minjae, named Daniel... it had to be him. Ughhhhh, hiding things was so hard. Being happy was so hard. Everything was so hard. But she wasn't going to tell him that, so instead she just looked at Daniel, pretending to await his answer.

Morgan did not have anything specific to do on this particular day at Diagon Alley, but he did not care. He was just happy to have the relative freedom that summer provided and even just a simple trip to Diagon Alley reminded him of how amazing just being outside and around friends could be. And he had plenty of friends, at least according to him, so even if he hadn't made any specific plans to meet anyone here today, he was sure he'd run into someone he knew and they could hang out.

Thirsty from the hot day and in the need of some junk and/or comfort food, Morgan settled on a chocolate milkshake from Florean's. He didn't see anyone he knew just yet, but he wasn't always the most observant person. He did, however, spot someone he knew soon after he left the ice cream shop and headed down the alley.

"Hey, Louise!" he grinned as he took a seat next to her on the bench. "What's going on?" And look, they both liked milkshakes!

But no, it would not do to admit her life problems to some kid just because he was related to Minjae (who was the best and she totally trusted him if she wanted to cry). So she put the smile back up, a safeguard. "Being in Ravenclaw is like being in a random house, but people expect you to be smart, and you have to answer riddles to get into your room." She rolled her eyes. "Some people think I should be in Gryffindor instead, but that's just incorrect." She WASN'T DUMB (neither were Gryffindors). She just was reckless and bored. Different things. Nope. She was not going to ruin her own mood. NOT HAPPENING. She put the smile back up. "Daniel... oh, I think... You're Minjae's brother, right?" This thought process was fake, obviously. She had already deduced who he was. Slightly entitled, looked like Minjae, named Daniel... it had to be him. Ughhhhh, hiding things was so hard. Being happy was so hard. Everything was so hard. But she wasn't going to tell him that, so instead she just looked at Daniel, pretending to await his answer.

For the whole summer so far, Daniel’s brother had not mentioned a word about what had taken place at Hogwarts during his last year. And his parents would not clue him in either as it was, and he quoted, ‘not for a child to know about’. He knew that there had been a battle but that was it. Anyway, he read crime fictions! he could handle it! Besides, the more they were being secretive about it, the more he wanted to find out and this girl Ash had been at Hogwarts during that time. Perhaps he could figure stuff out like, why his brother was crying in his sleep and kept having nightmares about some kind of dark place. He knew about this because he heard him talking in his sleep but he would be ignored when he asked about it during the day.

”What happened that you got those scars?” he asked as he turned to look at her. How did it happen?” or was she like his brother who shut down and did not talk about it?

”I like riddles” he said vaguely as he opened up his bag and placed the potions textbook inside before looking back up at the Ravenclaw. Not mentioning it, but Daniel secretly hoped to get in to Ravenclaw. ”My brother was supposed to be in Gryffindor. At least that was what he told me once. “The Sorting Hat took a couple of minutes to sort me between Gryffindor and Hufflepuff but went with the latter in the end” he quoted what his brother had said, quite literally.

………………..She knew him?!

”I am….” he answered slowly as he eyed the girl suspiciously. ”How’d you know?” Had she come over to their house before? He doubted it cause he would have remembered her as his brother did not invite many people over. ”I don’t remember you at all” he stated bluntly ”Did you stalk us around Diagon Alley?” Should he call security over?

Ash picked up on the look in Daniel's eyes. Interesting. She had found something he was curious about. Checkmate. "An evil cult leader made it spell 'liar' on my face and I had to get it off. No joke. Kinda embarrassing, but not the absolute worst. At least I didn't get crucio'd on the first day of class." Emphasis on first. Because she had been crucio'd more than once AFTER the first day of class. Maybe he wouldn't ask, and then she wouldn't have to tell. Her face was calm, and her movement was subtle, but if Daniel was watching closely, he could see her grab her right wrist in a tight fist, right next to the calming bracelets that Serena gave her for keeps.

But maybe they were moving on. Maybe. Was this subject better or worse? "Cause you look like him. And you kinda seem like, I dunno, also rich or whatever, and he has a brother named Daniel who is the same age as you. And he was a Hufflepuff and a Muggleborn, and he seems like he's proud of being one." Honestly, it was just a simple connecting the dots. Daniel was looking suspicious of her now. Maybe he would look at his bodyguards or whatever to go throw her in a mirror. Maybe she should have brought her bodyguards with her. Well, too late for that. She squeezed her wrist tighter. "Yeah well, we don't know each other, so you wouldn't remember me." She stared at him after the next question, confusedly. What? "Why would I be stalking you? I have better things to do. If I got caught then I'd be through. Me, I'm never stalking you."

...wait, WHAT? Did she just... what? Ash turned slightly pink and looked at her feet. "I didn't mean for that to rhyme. Won't happen again." And he better not tell. She didn't want people to think she was crazy. Nope. She already had enough people thinking that. Didn't need another one. She cleared her throat and squeezed her wrist even tighter. "As I was trying to say, I'm not a stalker." Look, no rhymes. Let's move on to the next subject... and never speak of this again.

"As I was trying to say, I'm not a stalker." Look, no rhymes. Let's move on to the next subject... and never speak of this again.
The part about the leader of evil cult was known to him. He also knew his name, Lucien Rosier. He also knew that his cult had tried to take over Europe but had failed thanks to Minister Hollingberry. He knew all that because it had been on the wizarding news. What he did not know and wanted to know was what had happened before that battle. Why was his brother still uneasy despite that the cult had fallen? Why was he screaming in his sleep and what kind of nightmares was he having?

”That was unnecessary of him to do” he said , making a face. ”I’m sorry he did that to you” but now on to the REAL question.”But what is crucio’d?” he asked genuinely curious because he had never heard of this before. And he had been reading his first year textbooks already and he could not remember a mention of it anywhere. ”Is it a spell? or a potion?” he asked as he looked down at his bag for a second in which his potions book was inside of.

He wasn’t sure how he felt that Minjae had been mentioning him to others. ”I don’t really appreciate that he has been mentioning me to others though...” he said slowly and with a frown on his face. He did not like it when people already knew who he was before he had even met them.

Daniel grinned as he took note of the Ravenclaw girl turning slightly pink in the face and looked at her feet. But he said nothing about it. Just like when he had noticed that she seemed to be fidgeting with the bracelet around her wrist. ”Rhyming is cool” he said with a nonchalant shrug of his shoulders. ”Not many people can do that” He knew he couldn’t.

And noted, she was not a stalker. At least she SAID she wasn’t one.

"mmm well, he did lots of other 'unecessary' and way worse things." Like the room, and the mirrors, and the phycological torture. And the actual torture. "Crucio is a curse. You point your wand at someone, and it's like their nerves are burning. It's torture, and it hurts a lot. Very illegal, obviously. But hey, most of the things he did were very illegal." A couple casts of Crucio could break someone permanently. She did not let go of her wrist. If she kept on like this, she was going to cut off her circulation or something. "Rhyming is cooler when you do it on purpose. I don't want to look like I'm, y'know... yeah." Crazy. She didn't want that. When Ash got put in solitary confinement in a mirror for a while, and didn't come out so great, the last thing she wanted was people thinking she wasn't... alright. Wasn't fine. Etc. People who thought that did the pity thing and the walking-on-eggshells thing. She hated those.

Ash released her wrist, leaving a slight mark. She had been holding it subconsciously, and both her wrist and her left hand had started to not get comfortable. She stretched her fingers nonchalantly. The messages you subconsciously sent were important, and Ash did not need to send the message that she was uncomfortable or that she needed bracelets to function. Nope. Definitely did not need to send that message. Instead she clasped her hands in her lap. That's better. Now she wasn't sending that message anymore.

”Like what?” he asked, almost hanging on to her lips in curiosity. He had long forgotten about reading his text book because this girl was actually talking about what had happened that year unlike SOMEONE. Who knew that a random stranger would give him more information than his actual family.

”I didn’t know there was a spell that was illegal to use!” he said perhaps a bit too excitedly because the longer he listened to more this cult sounded like something from the novels he had read. ”And he USED one of them?!” That was so wrong yet…fascinating? ”You speak like you know the feeling, did you get crucio’d as well?” he asked and wondered if that had happened to his brother as well.

”Crazy” he finished her sentence . ”But who is normal anyway” Normal sounded boring to him. The way she was holding on to her wrist and the uncomfortable body language was enough for Daniel to stop asking further. If he could he would have kept going but Minjae had taught him to be more respectful so instead he pointed at the bracelets. ”I like your bracelets” he did not but he was being nice here, if only his big brother could see him now!

WHy this subject? Just... why? "A lot of crazy stuff happened, like putting me in a mirror for... a while. Did you know you can do that? I sure didn't. Also stuck all the people he didn't like in a dirty room... also for a while... without our wands. And murder. And like, threatening to murder people. Especially me. He really did not like me. Really didn't. Can't think why." Actually, she could. It was because she was a muggleborn(not going to even think about the other word) and a troublemaker.

She took a deep breath. "There are some illegal spells. Crucio. That one is red, like blood. And the killing curse, is green. For go. Y'know. Instantaneous death. He- used that one too. The other one is Imperius, which is like forcing people to do what you want. He probably also used that one, but I don't know. I didn't see it. I know those ones for sure, but there might be others that are illegal. I didn't have a lot of time to look it up. Some of them ought to be illegal, but aren't." Honestly, the laws here VERY unrestrictive. She took a deep, wobbly breath. Then she looked at her wrist. "Oh. This girl Serena gave them to me when I was a first year. Because she said the crystals would give me mental clarity. Turns out I was possessed that year. I also burned down a forest, and your brother set me on fire. I thought that year was weird. Guess I was wrong." She shrugged and crossed her legs. ANYWAYYYYY.... "How was your summer?" Or whatever. It was a terrible version of small talk, but it was all she had. LETS TALK ABOUT FUN THINGS, the false cheery voice in Ash's head said. Yes, Let's.

LETS TALK ABOUT FUN THINGS, the false cheery voice in Ash's head said. Yes, Let's.
Daniel did not dare to speak, afraid that he would be missing any details. He still could not believe that he had found someone who was talking about what had happened. His brother would either change the subject or tell him to shut it. ”I did not know that!” he gasped as she told him that it was possible to trap someone in a mirror. His mouth was hanging open as he stared at her in amazement. ”How is it done? Can YOU do that?” He didn’t so much care about some dirty room but when Ash mentioned the word murder and that the man had threatened Ash, he frowned because even he knew that it was wrong. ”What a Gargoyle” he said, shaking his head. ”But i heard he’s dead now which makes you the winner” he grinned.

Thinking that the Ash was done talking as she took a deep breath , Daniel was about to interrupt when she continued. And oh boy did she tell STUFF! ”So there are three curses that are illegal to use?” he asked. ”One is for torturing, the other for controlling someone and the last a killing curse” he summarized, putting up a finger with each mention as he tried to see if he had understood.

He looked down at the bracelet a second time but said nothing about the crystals and their mental clarity . He wasn’t sure if he believed in that or not. Which was funny because he was going to a magical school soon and magic was supposed to not exist as well. ”Woah! Did a ghost possess you or something? What does it feel like? I bet it feels cold! Could you see your breath when it possessed you?! ” Wait, hold up. his brother done WHAT? Minjae had set someone on fire?! That did not sound like his brother at all. He guessed that he wasn’t a weakling after all. Then again, as he thought about it a bit more, it had probably been an accident. Mweh, boring.

Summer? Huh?

”Yeah great. Whatever.” he said dismissively before rolling up his right sleeve and revealed a wrist holster. ”Check this out, i got my first wand!” he pulled the wand out of its holster and held it up for Ash to see. ”Isn’t it amazing?”

Default oh boy this is a loooong post

This was lowkey sketchy. Like, why did Daniel want to trap people in mirrors? "I don't know how to trap people in mirrors... but if I did, I wouldn't do it anyway, because it's very wrong and I'm not evil." She said it evenly, letting no emotion slip into her voice. She didn't just hate it because it was wrong, she hated it because she had experienced it. And it was like, one of the worst things ever. Also, if she did know how to mirror-trap people, she definitely wouldn't be telling Daniel. "Yeah, Rosier is dead. Good riddance, according to me. Pyrrhic victory though." Did Ash feel a shred of pity for Rosier? Nope. He met basically all of the criteria for being a terrible evil person, and he had personally threatened/hurt her about a thousand times, AND he stuck her in a mirror when she disrespected Upstead-the-traitor. AND it was his fault people(including Kitridge) were dead. And he destroyed her property. And he hurt her friends. And he was anti-muggle. And he made her feel worthless and sad. So no, Ash did not care for one second. Too bad, so sad. Meanwhile, Daniel had moved on to asking about curses. Ash wasn't sure she was supposed to be telling her good friend's 11-year old brother about the Unforgivables, but she had already done that, soooo... too late. Sorry, Minjae. "Yeah, those are the illegal ones, which means that nobody should ever use them. I'd say crucio would be the worst cuz it hurts, but that's just my opinion." Enough about that...

And now on to possession. They were really going deep into ALL of the bad stuff, weren't they? Rosier... Unforgiveables... possession... Rosier... basically anything that had ever happened to her... yay. The amount of trauma they were just casually bringing up. Fun. Daniel was lucky that Ash was an incredibly patient person who liked to talk about anything, even if it was sad. Good stories came from pain. "I don't know what it feels like to be possessed, cuz I don't remember. It gave me big headaches when I was in control though, and when I wasn't in control, I apparently caused a lot of trouble. With the help of some other possessed students." She smiled. "That's kinda how I got my nickname. My name is Ashley anyway, and apparently knowing an arsonist named Ashley is too good of an opportunity for nicknames." She liked it. It sounded cool.

Oooh, finally they were going to talk about something less traumatic! The summer question hadn't worked, but now Daniel was showing her a wrist holster and she didn't have any painful memories involving those. "Cool. I have one too!" She rolled up her right sleeve. A couple of nasty scars from fire and various injuries she had endured (muggle and Hogwarts-related)... a temporary tattoo... the bracelets... And an expensive wrist holster. Just in case. She didn't want to carry her wand out in the open, but she didn't want to be defenseless. "Just in case I need to cause some explosions, commit some good old arson, or actually just clean my dorm. And a lot of stuff in between." Ash was clearly not of the opinion that peace was the only option. And she wasn't of the opinion that you needed to follow what other people wanted if they were annoying/against your goals. That could go very badly sometimes. Usually. Almost always. But Ash wasn't about to sacrifice her morals to abide by rules she didn't like, so she wasn't planning on changing. Sure, it caused her nothing but pain to be herself, but she would having nothing but pain and regret if she wasn't herself. So it goes, apparently.

And he had plenty of friends, at least according to him, so even if he hadn't made any specific plans to meet anyone here today, he was sure he'd run into someone he knew and they could hang out.

Thirsty from the hot day and in the need of some junk and/or comfort food, Morgan settled on a chocolate milkshake from Florean's. He didn't see anyone he knew just yet, but he wasn't always the most observant person. He did, however, spot someone he knew soon after he left the ice cream shop and headed down the alley.

"Hey, Louise!" he grinned as he took a seat next to her on the bench. "What's going on?" And look, they both liked milkshakes!
She had been deep in thought, about nothing in particular, but she was definitely zoning out when Morgan called her name. Jolted from the depths of her mind, Louise looked up and smiled at the boy as he took a seat next to her. "Hey you," she replied, noting that he had the same thought as her and bought a milkshake too.

"Not much," she said in reply to his question. "Just soaking up some sun. I feel like I can't get enough." Surely he'd be able to relate - they both had been locked in that room together for a long time. Louise had always liked Morgan, but she felt like they had gotten to know each other a little better over the last term at school. Suppose being locked in a room together would do that. "How have you been?"

Alfie walked over to the bench in a way that was almost way too lively, fast and enthusiastic for this time in the morning. He clutched a strawberry ice cream in his right hand. His uncle Luca said he would do the necessary school shopping (but who knew what he was actually doing, probably flirting with some random lady) so Alfred was free to do whatever he wanted. A few minutes after buying the ice cream he had in his hand from Florean's, he found himself at this bench. He watched as a squirrel bounded past and slowly ate his ice cream. Alfie seemed to be getting used to Britain. It was nice, except for the weather. And the food. And the fashion. His previous home in the French Riviera was amazing, with its Mediterranean weather, great local food and top-end fashion. Still, Britain was nice. Sort of.

A gentle breeze blew, ruffling Alfie's soft brown hair and blowing a few fallen leaves across the street. Autumn, his favourite season, was coming.

"I don't know how to trap people in mirrors... but if I did, I wouldn't do it anyway, because it's very wrong and I'm not evil." She said it evenly, letting no emotion slip into her voice. She didn't just hate it because it was wrong, she hated it because she had experienced it. And it was like, one of the worst things ever. Also, if she did know how to mirror-trap people, she definitely wouldn't be telling Daniel. "Yeah, Rosier is dead. Good riddance, according to me." Did Ash feel a shred of pity for Rosier? Nope. He met basically all of the criteria for being a terrible evil person, and he had personally threatened/hurt her about a thousand times, AND he stuck her in a mirror when she disrespected Upstead-the-traitor. AND it was his fault people(including Kitridge) were dead. And he destroyed her property. And he hurt her friends. And he was anti-muggle. And he made her feel worthless and sad. So no, Ash did not care for one second. Too bad, so sad. Meanwhile, Daniel had moved on to asking about curses. Ash wasn't sure she was supposed to be telling her good friend's 11-year old brother about the Unforgivables, but she had already done that, soooo... too late. Sorry, Minjae. "Yeah, those are the illegal ones, which means that nobody should ever use them. I'd say crucio would be the worst cuz it hurts, but that's just my opinion." Enough about that...

And now on to possession. They were really going deep into ALL of the bad stuff, weren't they? Rosier... Unforgiveables... possession... Rosier... basically anything that had ever happened to her... yay. The amount of trauma they were just casually bringing up. Fun. Daniel was lucky that Ash was an incredibly patient person who liked to talk about anything, even if it was sad. Good stories came from pain. "I don't know what it feels like to be possessed, cuz I don't remember. It gave me big headaches when I was in control though, and when I wasn't in control, I apparently caused a lot of trouble. With the help of some other possessed students." She smiled. "That's kinda how I got my nickname. My name is Ashley anyway, and apparently knowing an arsonist named Ashley is too good of an opportunity for nicknames." She liked it. It sounded cool.

Oooh, finally they were going to talk about something less traumatic! The summer question hadn't worked, but now Daniel was showing her a wrist holster and she didn't have any painful memories involving those. "Cool. I have one too!" She rolled up her right sleeve. A couple of nasty scars from fire and various injuries she had endured (muggle and Hogwarts-related)... a temporary tattoo... the bracelets... And an expensive wrist holster. Just in case. She didn't want to carry her wand out in the open, but she didn't want to be defenseless. "Just in case I need to cause some explosions, commit some good old arson, or actually just clean my dorm. And a lot of stuff in between." Ash was clearly not of the opinion that peace was the only option. And she wasn't of the opinion that you needed to follow what other people wanted if they were annoying/against your goals. That could go very badly sometimes. Usually. Almost always. But Ash wasn't about to sacrifice her morals to abide by rules she didn't like, so she wasn't planning on changing. Sure, it caused her nothing but pain to be herself, but she would having nothing but pain and regret if she wasn't herself. So it goes, apparently.



For the record. Daniel had no desire in trapping people in mirrors. He also had no desire to hurt anyone. Unless they asked for it, he was not a pushover. He was simply fascinated by any means of magic and that included the more unorthodox curses. Because wasn’t it fascinating? It was to him and he wanted to learn everything about the magical world from how to levitate a feather to how to control someone’s actions. Besides, wanting to learn about it and actually using it were two entirely different things.

He did believe her when she mentioned that she did not know how it had worked which made the soon to be first even more interested. Perhaps one of the older students would know or a professor? ”It is wrong to do” he nodded in agreement while also making a mental note to ask around. Maybe the Hogwarts Library had books on the subject? But Minjae had told him once that that anything ‘scary’ was in a restricted section and that he needed special permission from a Professor to read one of those books. He sighed because he doubted they would give permission to a first year.

”But if nobody should ever use them, why do they do it?” he wondered out loud. ” What happens if you do use an illegal curse? Do the police come and arrest you?" He asked. "And what about creatures? I heard there are horses that have WINGS at Hogwarts! . Do we learn about those at school? Can i fly on one ?!” He knew how to ride a horse so flying one would be EASY.

If Daniel had noticed that the girl was getting uncomfortable with the things he asked was not his problem. She had a mouth and if she felt uncomfortable she could say it and he would stop. As long as she kept answering his questions he was going to keep asking. Because there was still so much he wanted to know.

MORE students got possessed that year?! Instead of feeling scared or nervous like he probably should be , the eleven year old looked like he was about to burst with excitement. ”Hogwarts sounds so cool” he breathed at last. So her name was short for Ashley. Seeing as she had introduced herself as Ash he would keep using that. And from what he already knew about this girl her name actually suited her. He was Daniel. Just Daniel or Batman depending who he was with heh

Watching the girl roll up her right sleeve as well Daniel leaned in closer when he saw the scars . Questions were going through his head again but instead he decided to comment on the tattoo because WHAT?! ”Where’d you get that tattoo? Its a temporary one ,right?” maybe the laws in the wizarding world were different when it came to tattoos.

Ash wasn't expecting that question. "... uhhhh, cause they're evil and can't accept that people different than them exist? I dunno, they just like to hurt people." Like, it wasn't that deep. People who used Unforgivables were either full of hurt or full of pain. "If you use Unforgivables, I think you go to Azkaban. Which probably sucks. I'd rather get hit with a nasty life-altering curse than go there for any amount of time ever." And she had suffered some nasty curses. But going to Azkaban- that was something she never, ever, ever wanted to do. Never ever ever. NOPE.

Daniel saw the world way different than Ash did. Like, what he was taking away from this conversation was 'wow everyone is traumatized can I go there?' Even Ash, who was basically the queen of reckless, foolhardy, and lowkey dumb life choices, she could still understand from this that Hogwarts = not good for her, not cool, very bad. But she didn't feel like telling him that she thought he might be miserable like his brother, so she said nothing about his misplaced enthusiasm.

But the enthusiasm for her fake tattoo was not misplaced. It was very correctly placed. Which was totally the opposite of misplaced. "I got it at some party I went to around here. I was gonna get one in the muggle world, but this was super convenient. Of course it's temporary. It would be illegal for me to have a real one when I'm only thirteen. And I know I don't look like it, but I'm actually a law abiding citizen." A law abiding citizen of Australia, which wasn't where she currently was, but you get the point. Ash laughed. "When I'm sixteen though, I'm gonna get lots of real ones." Because tattoos were the highest form of art, except for all the other forms that Ash liked equally much. And nobody would be able to stop her. Well, her father technically could because she needed his permission to get tattoos before she was an adult, but he wasn't exactly the boss of their household. As long as she didn't ask for an embarrassing tattoo that the press would make fun of her father for, permission and funds were just about guaranteed. And Ash was well aware that her father's uncaringness and willingness to let her do whatever she wanted made him a not-so-great father, but she was not gonna complain. At least he wasn't an overbearing micromanager. It could be worse.
