Default Scribbulus Writing Implements



At the end north side of the street of Diagon Alley, sandwiched between Quality Quidditch Supplies and an intersecting alley that leads to Knockturn Alley, sits a small building made of light grey stones. A peal of small bells made of gold tinkle together in a rather quiet unison as the glass door of the shop opens and reveals the stationary supplies store, which is brightly lit thanks to the front glass window that allows sunlight to filter inside the shop. The smell of the store is a surprisingly pleasant combination of wood, old parchment, ink and, shockingly enough, scented candles.

Every single inch of the store seems to be crammed with shelves full of the artifacts sold at the shop, and though it might look and sound messy, the place is surprisingly organized, and whatever item that costumers might be looking for, can undoubtedly be found easily; rolls of parchment, stationery sets, quills made of the most unthinkable and exotic feathers, and every imaginable sort of decorative paper -– you think of it, and this store has it. Inks are the place's specialty, and as such, here you'll find ink of every colour and style that you could possibly imagine.

Behind the tall and smooth wooden counter, the shopkeeper can normally be found. With a frown on his forehead, the shopkeeper is usually busy sorting through piles of parchment, which would be stock orders, bills, magazines, or just plain letters that have been addressed to him. This is the place where you come if you are in need of help, or to pay for the items you wish to acquire at Scribbulus Writing Implements.

The familiar sound of bells rang out above him as Septimus gingerly pushed open the glass door of the shop. He had been meaning to make a stop for weeks for a couple of things and had been getting distracted by one situation or another. But here he was and after stepping off to one side so as not to block the door, Septimus paused to retrieve the mental list of what he was looking for. Ink was always a need, as well as the occasional quill. And he had apparently lost track of his notebook usage, the muggle tool a habit he had picked up from his mother’s interests.

The better to have the parchments...pages...together rather than loose sometimes.

Orienting himself within the shop, he headed towards the inks that were nearest, debating his options. Work would definitely need black, could hardly be anything but professional, especially starting out, but could everlasting ink be useful for preserving things? Or would it make it impossible for corrections if needed?

With a hankering for some glow in the dark ink (she had a little mural project in mind for the flat) and perhaps a couple other preemptive purchases for Sophia and the office that she could write off as a business expense, Candela glided into Scribbulus and smiled up at the bell that announced her arrival. Already distracted from her moment of entry because of the display of muggle pens and notebooks, her fingers ignored her earlier promise to herself and selected three notebooks and a set of markers. Dropping them gently into her shopper's basket, she twirled herself towards the aisle of inks where she found herself greeted by a familiar profile.

Smiling to herself for now, she nimbly tiptoed over to Septimus and set her basket down as quietly as possible so as not to whack him in the face or shoulder. Biting back a grin she lifted up on to her tip toes and, in a gesture that may be entirely too friendly considering they had only recently become acquainted, slipped her slender fingers over his eyes in as he scrutinized the display. "Some would say that...memory is more indelible than ink," she hummed. "...can you remember who?"

Everlasting…regular black…self-correcting?

A decision made on the ink, Septimus had just reached up to take a bottle from a shelf in the display in his line of sight…only for his sight to suddenly vanish into darkness causing him to freeze lest he make a wrong move and cause a mess. His hand moving back down to his side. He had no desire to make the shopkeeper upset and risk being barred from such an establishment. That would not be the way to go in the grand scheme of things, especially if the potential boss ever sent him for supplies.

“Professor Vance?” he remarked in answer, randomly thinking back to any and all professors with wise words during school and for some reason the Divinations Professor had come to mind thinking on memories. Of course, he knew it wasn’t her but he was playing along with the guessing game and not giving in just yet having some clue who it might be by the choice of words. That and he couldn't think of anyone else that would do such a thing.

Certainly no wise professor here, school had never particularly been one of her strengths and had not even completed her seventh year nor taken any of her NEWTs, but there was a certain tickling warmth that he would presume her to be one. She may know this Professor Vance as well, though if she did she had misplaced the memory of them, but it was a potential walk down memory lane that would be postponed for at least a bit more.

"Not...exactly," she laughed. Lowering her hands on her next breath, Candela sidestepped with a playful pivot around to his left side and smiled broadly up at him with her pearly whites. "Olá, Septimus. It's lovely to see you again." Her warm eyes glanced at the shelf he had been pondering and plucked from it a regular black from somewhere in the middle of the row of the display. "I have a good feeling about this one," she added with a wink as she set it in his basket.

There was laughter and he could suddenly see again. Huzzah. Septimus turned his head to look as his companion was revealed as she stepped beside him, the intern greeted with the bright smile that always seemed to grace the face of the woman in question. “Hello,” he greeted Candela with a softer polite smile of his own, finding himself unable to fight the infectiousness. And she was happy to see HIM again. He wasn't sure what to make of that as he was never the most gregarious so it wasn’t like he had a load of friends who could say that about it being lovely to see him again.

He watched her next move, chuckling lightly as she took the initiative and made his ink decision for him. “Why yes…tried and true always works,” he remarked matter of factly with a nod. Why should he change things at the moment if he didn't need to? “Need any for yourself, or was there another reason for coming in besides running into me?” Her own basket currently out of his line of sight.

Would very much implore him to take the words and sincerity at face value, because that was what precisely what it was. Pleased to see a familiar and friendly face, regardless of the formalities he had not yet officially shaken off in her presence just yet. She was working on that.

"Mmmhmmm," smiles and plucks one for herself as well. "Convenient as magical modifications can be, I've always found a delight in the more...mundane things and methods." Setting the black ink into her basket, the fashionista wiggled her fingers over the other inks as though trying to assess the vibe and aura that each bottle gave off. Which...was not the case as she possessed no such abilities, but she was feeling for something. "Well, I ticked the biggest one off the list already," she winked playfully before reaching across him towards some of the muggle artefacts - namely the colored pens. "But I was hoping to buy a few personal necessities and maybe a couple items for the office too."

Mundane could be good. “Me too,” Septimus agreed and not just because one had a former Muggle Studies professor as a mother. “Things don’t have to be…complicated.” Well maybe not exactly the right word, but the one coming to mind at the moment. Complex maybe. He had space for both the magical and mundane in his life just as he had both wizards and muggles on both sides of his family history. It was all about what one preferred.

“Great minds think a like then…” he remarked as he spotted what was in her basket. Notebooks of the muggle persuasion like the ones he was looking for. “Ink to be prepared for the new job….” The intern mused, shifting to move back the way she had come to spot what she had found. “Notebook for a personal project," he added with it raised so she could see before adding it to his own basket.

Default Lovely emjay & Dy's Gobstones buddy!
~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Now that a wand and many other supplies had been acquired, Dynah had decided she needed a break. The sun above was showering down so much heat that she yearned to hide from it. Luckily, her fathers were rather chill about letting her wander around Diagon Alley for a bit, even if Dy could see the shred of worry in Papa Benny’s eyes. Daddy Adi would reassure him though. Besides, her entire family was close by: her fathers, twin sister and two brothers. Trying not to give any other shopper in her way an accidental shove, the eleven year old skipped her way into Scribbulus.

Stationery, both magical and mundane, was little Dy’s kryptonite. The beautiful coloured pens, inks and quills, sticky pads, gorgeously patterned pencils… you name it and she was a fan. As for parchment? That heavenly aroma of it was simply perfection. Dy wandered the aisles for a brief moment but came to a halt before the section dedicated to Muggle stationery. There was a particular notebook with a drawing of a [/i]dove[/i] that attracted her.

There was a particular notebook with a drawing of a dove that attracted her.
Sure, Wiley was super excited to be going to Hogwarts - the first one of his siblings! - and to get all the awesome supplies that he needed to take with him. Well, some of the supplies. Shopping for certain supplies was super BORING, like new robes and stationary. Like, what was exciting about quills and parchment?

But he was informed that he had to get all of that and was even told her could get a few of his things personalized with his name or monogram, which made it minimally cooler. So here he was, bounding through the door of Scribbulus, in search of parchment and planners that he could have personalized. But before he could find anything that he needed, he spotted someone familiar. Or at least the back of a familiar head.

He was about to greet her jovially as normal, but he thought a different greeting might be fun. The eleven year old quietly crept behind her, then reached out to tap her on her right shoulder while staying behind her left shoulder. He hoped that she'd look to the right when he was really on her left! Haha!

There was a bit of instant regret at her use of 'mundane' and for a flicker of a moment she wondered when she had become so jaded as to reference these auspicious tools as 'mundane'. With a pencil one could create an entire world on paper, rich with grayscale and infinite possibility. It was a curiosity she did not permit herself to linger on for too long, not in the present company, and offered him a delighted smile that easily twinkled in her eyes and playfully stuck her tongue out him.

"Oh? Congratulations," she rejoined, her arms flying upwards and clapping above her head. "That's exciting to be embarking on a new adventure." Candela then picked up a more slender notebook. "Where are you---," she began inquiring as she flipped through the blank pages of the notebook, just to get a feel for it, when suddenly a couple of the pages ripped right out of the binding and fluttered to the floor - the rest of the book's binding in a questionable disarray. "Oh...my...nargles at it again I suppose," she sighed while crouching down to retrieve the fleeing pages

But he was informed that he had to get all of that and was even told her could get a few of his things personalized with his name or monogram, which made it minimally cooler. So here he was, bounding through the door of Scribbulus, in search of parchment and planners that he could have personalized. But before he could find anything that he needed, he spotted someone familiar. Or at least the back of a familiar head.

He was about to greet her jovially as normal, but he thought a different greeting might be fun. The eleven year old quietly crept behind her, then reached out to tap her on her right shoulder while staying behind her left shoulder. He hoped that she'd look to the right when he was really on her left! Haha!

Excuse you, Wiley! Dynah would like to have you know that parchment and quills were life! Without such things as stationery, where would anyone be? Okay, maybe it was being slowly replaced by technology but still… stationery was important.

Dy had decided that the dove notebook was not something she only wanted, but it was definitely what she also needed. Besides, she already knew that her fathers would be more than happy to buy it for her. What she planned to write in it was Gobstones notes - tactics, weaknesses of potential future opponents, their strengths. If she wanted to join a Pro Gobstones team, Dy needed to be prepared in all aspects.

A tap on the shoulder interrupted her thoughts and the little girl immediately looked over her right shoulder. Huh? There was no one there. With a frown, Ms. Atreyu-Rehman turned fully around. Only then did she spot him. The frown dissolved immediately and was replaced with a grin. She rolled her eyes, shook her head then reached out to poke Wiley in the chest.

Caught you!

It was a curiosity she did not permit herself to linger on for too long, not in the present company, and offered him a delighted smile that easily twinkled in her eyes and playfully stuck her tongue out him.

"Oh? Congratulations," she rejoined, her arms flying upwards and clapping above her head. "That's exciting to be embarking on a new adventure." Candela then picked up a more slender notebook. "Where are you---," she began inquiring as she flipped through the blank pages of the notebook, just to get a feel for it, when suddenly a couple of the pages ripped right out of the binding and fluttered to the floor - the rest of the book's binding in a questionable disarray. "Oh...my...nargles at it again I suppose," she sighed while crouching down to retrieve the fleeing pages

Septimus couldn’t help but laugh at the stuck out tongue, quite amused by the playful gesture. “Thanks, it does feel nice to have some sort of path,” he said to the congratulations, “Gringo---” the young intern was about to answer her question or at least the question he assumed she was asking when she broke off, breaking him off himself at the sight of the wrecked pages. Now how did that happen?

“Poor notebook,” he remarked with a frown at the needless destruction of plant carcass. Nargles or a misbehaving patron of the sure perhaps. The stores could get very hectic at times of year with kids and students and perhaps someone had decided to cause trouble. Or poor manufacturing? He wasn’t quite sure about nargles in all honesty. Not that he was going to dissuade Candela.

Boy, it was so hard to keep quiet when his little trick worked and Dynah looked to the right. Wiley wanted to laugh so bad! It was a real exercise in fortitude! But his effort paid off and when she finally turned around and spotted him, the eleven year old erupted in delighted giggles.

"Hi, Dynah!" Wiley greeted the girl with a grin as she poked him in the chest and his laughter finally subsided. "I've interrupted a deep thought, haven't I?" Even he had to admit that his trick only worked because she must have been lost in thought about... well, something. But it worked out in his favor. "What were you looking at anyway?" He looked past her to try to see what had been so interesting to so raptly catch her attention.

Wiley’s giggles were certainly contagious. Dy followed suit a split second later, and this eventually led her to uncontrollably throwing a snort or two in there. It was rather unlady-like but the girl couldn’t care less. Her free hand waved at Wiley frantically in greeting. You see, she was still recovering from her giggle-snorts.

It took Dy a full minute but eventually she regained control of herself. “Hi, Wiley! Uh huh. Just some thoughts about what stationery I should treat myself to. Don’t worry about it though!” Her eyes playfully narrowed. “Nice prank, by the way. You sure fooled me.” The book with the dove on the cover was held up. “This. I’m definitely getting it but I want a few pens too. Care to help me make a selection?”

Wiley's giggles might have been contagious, but Dynah's were too, so it was probably no surprise that he had kept on laughing for a bit longer. Especially when she snorted!

But even after his giggles had subsided, he was still in a playful humorous mood. "Yeah, it's a classic!" Wiley thought it was a funny little prank and not like in a mean way. It was good, harmless fun and he was glad Dynah could appreciate it. He was less pleased about the stationery, but it was a necessary thing for today and he figured he might as well make the best of it anyway.

The eleven year old peered at the journal his friend held up. "Cool dove." It wasn't exactly his style, but Dynah liked it and that was all that mattered. He lifted his eyes to the shelf above those books to see what else they had here. "You know what else would be cool? To get a notebook of your Hogwarts House." Like ones with mascots or the house colors. He was sure they'd have those here too since they catered to Hogwarts students mostly. "Too bad we don't know which house we'll be in yet.. Which one do you think you'll be sorted in?" He turned his eyes back to Dynah.

"Sure, I can help!" he agreed to looking for some pens with her. "I should probably get some too. I like cool colors besides just black and blue." Like purple and orange and green! Certainly they had some of those too.

Okay, okay!

They could be giggle buddies too! In Dy’s opinion, it was always nice to have someone to share a good laugh - and a snort - with. “No one’s ever tricked me in that manner so I give you full props for that.” Already she was scheming about how she could get back at Wiley in some manner Like Dad Adi, the soon-to-be-Hufflepuff possessed an epic sense of humour. Wiley never had to worry about offending her.

The girl followed Wiley’s gaze with her own. “Yes.’’ Her agreement was said in a tone of great regret; she wished she knew in this instant what House they both would be Sorted into. “I’m hoping for Gryffindor or Hufflepuff. My dads were in one or the other, but my older brother is a Ravenclaw. I’m not sure I fit into that one or Slytherin. What about you? And let’s strike a little deal? Next summer we come back here to get a House notebook each?”

Black and blue were cool to Wiley. Dy made a mental note of this; the knowledge would come in handy whenever she needed to get him a birthday present or something. “Green and red too! They always give off that Christmas vibe; Christmas happens to be the best holiday, by the way! Present hunting is always such fun!’’ Did Wiley love Christmas too?

"Really?! Me too!" Wiley exclaimed when Dynah mentioned her hopeful houses. He was a little surprised that she said the exact same thing he was going to say, which was actually super cool! And maybe they'd even end up in the same house together! "My mum was in Gryffindor and my dad was in Hufflepuff. They both said they're really cool houses, so I hope I get one of those." Of course he did have other family members in other houses, like his cousins in Slytherin and his grandparents in Ravenclaw, but Hufflepuff and Gryffindor were his top two. Or really tied for first place. He glanced back to the notebooks with a badger or lion on them and nodded with a big grin. "It's a deal!" Next summer seemed like a really long time to wait though. But at least he'd know which house way before then.

Wiley didn't consider those color choices long before he was nodded in agreement. "Yeah they sure are pretty Christmassy." Probably wouldn't have picked either of those colors as his favorite or even thought about Christmas right now during summer, but they were pretty cool colors and he happened to like that holiday too. "Christmas is pretty awesome," he grinned. "AND it's really close to my birthday so I get double presents." December was a pretty awesome month all around.

Had she not been so concerned with retrieving the fallen pages, she may have had a bit of a giggle at just where his utterance of Gringotts had been cut off and that, technically, it was true about her here in the United Kingdom - though she was personally not a fan of the word herself because of social constructs and the like. Given the context of their conversation, however, she was able to parse together his intended news just as she bounced back to stand and with the spare pages clutched in her hand rather haphazardly.

But she would be adding another to her basket, one more intact, as well. Perhaps two. And she was not sure she believed in nargles, though she did believe in plenty of things she could not see, and it was rather quite fun to at least pretend to from time to time. "Gringotts then? That's brilliant, Septimus. What are your hours? Maybe if our schedules align just so I can take you out to lunch one day." She did often frequent Diagon Alley on her lunch breaks - at least the days she was not popping by the Ministry to pick up lunch with another of her favorite people. "You know, if there are any Gringotts galas or soirees you need to attend, I do have a fair bit of experience in dressing and tailoring men for such occasions. I've even dressed and designed for the Minister of Magic on occasion. I'll slip you my business card later, just in case."

Another wink and playful but modest sticking out of the tongue. Because of course.

Septimus hadn’t even been aware of what he had said just what he had intended, then distracted by his companion and her discovery. “True…” There were certainly ways to remedy the situation if one took the time. And if anyone knew how to handle it the best way, he was sure Candela would, with her artistic work and eye. “Yes, that was where I was going. I’m an intern there.” As for his schedule and going out to lunch… “Pretty standard hours with lunch breaks so I think we can manage that.” At the very least it would entice him out of the office.

Galas and soirees? Septimus chuckled as he was sure they were more for his father’s level of cursebreaker. Come to think of it, he did remember at least one or two his parents had attended that he had heard of though they could have been ministry related as well. “I’ll keep that in mind on the really off chance I’m needed at one.” Maybe dragged in as serving staff and needing some fancy get up.

Did she know what all being an intern for Gringotts entailed? Absolutely not, but that did not hinder her enthusiasm for his new trajectory. What did hinder it all, however, was the basket in her hand since it was clunky and it took a bit of juggling and arm adjusting so she could finally give him a complimentary hug and quick kiss on the cheek. Had Septimus figured out yet that her way of relating to and expression was through touch yet? Hopefully so or, if not and this was all terribly awkward, she could reign it all back. She knew how to do that, especially among her Slytherins. "Brilliant," she chirped again after pulling back and taking a small hop back too. "What all do you do? Will you be handling my deposits when I pop over?" She had not done an internship herself but instead jumped into assistant and personal assistant roles, some far more lucrative than others, so she was quite keen to learn more.

"Off chance?" she questioned with a bit of a brow raise. "Septimus, are you telling me you don't go out often?" Another personality trait she was accustomed to - see her Slytherins for reference.

While unsure of what she was doing at first with her juggling, Septimus wasn’t soo unaccustomed to personal contact to get an idea of what she want to do. He took the hug in stride though he couldn’t remember the last time someone not his family had done so, a small blush upon his face in reaction to the kiss on his cheek. Or that either. He looked away ever so briefly as Candela hopped back in hopes to recover without her notice. “The goblins still do that,” he answered “Mostly paperwork and working with the other cursebreaker on the artifacts and cases they handle.” Likely not so much in the public eye, at least for now.

He had to work up to the "Indiana Jones" type of tasks.

Cue feeling like an awkward turtle when his companion’s attention was turned to his answer about needing fancy dress. “Well…no…I don’t. Especially to fancy stuff.” To be honest, outside errands and his work and his classes when he was in university, he didn’t get out much. He had always been the more introverted of his fellows. And the woman before him was the only one who had managed to really get him out of his shell since throwing himself into school and work since his mother had passed. Both he and his father had seen that as the only way not to drown from the emotional time. "I mean, yes, that would be what I was saying."

She had the feeling that that would be the case, which was a real pity since having someone like Septimus behind the counter may make her occasional visits to Gringotts less unpleasant and something actually to look forward too. Goblins had a way of making her feel uneasy, not on appearance but in attitude and the way their greed for gold and possessions made her feel as a customer and person. There were one or two that she did enjoy her exchanges with and she tried to work her visits to the wizarding bank around the times she was certain they would be available. Granted, she did not visit all that often but...well...it would have been nice. "Oh? Does that including traveling then?" She would not even deny that she had a bit of a romanticized version of what a cursebreaker did in her head, something that was only fueled by the books she used to read to Elio at bedtime. "What has been your most interesting artefact thus far? Not necessarily the most siginficant or even valuable, but the one that just left you feeling...awe-inspired and grateful to have this internship."

And, for the record, his mild awkward duck vibes were just that. Mild and not entirely noticeable. Not when compared to her fascination with his new position which had her curiosity overshadowing everything else.

"Hmm, that's fair though. Formal affairs and galas are not necessarily commonplace for everyone." They certainly had been much more so since being taken under Sophia's wing and it was a life of glitter and glam she had only fantasized about as a little girl growing up in that orphanage in Brazil. It was around the time she had transferred from Castelobruxo to Beauxbatons that things felt actually achievable, though she never gave up dreaming. "I should amend my statement, since my services are not limited to just the fancy events and soirees. I also make for a good personal shopper and stylist for those day to day looks too." She had completely turned around the image of a professional quidditch player or two (looking at you Józef Kowalski!) simply by finding them the right basics for the foundation of their wardrobes. "The right items may just be the ticket to empowering yourself to step out more, if that is something you want to do."

Travel was big in the field for cursebreakers, especially when one didn’t have other responsibilities and were able to go on location. “Eventually…probably be brought in for the grunt work on locations.” In fact he was hoping it might be sooner rather than later if a coworker got his way with a trip. The first hand experience would be worth the labor. Most interesting artifact? Septimus had to think about that for sure. “There was a tablet a few weeks back. It’s always fascinating to see what languages you find where and when, including the ones no longer in use.”

Though reading things aloud was a bad thing of course if one could read it.

He could tell by her forwards that Candela didn’t quite read that he wasn’t the most outwardly social person, but he stayed quiet on the matter. No point in pointing out that he was still very much like his awkward teenage self despite heading towards his mid-twenties. “I’ll think on that.” Maybe with no longer being in an academic setting, it was time for a change. Not that he really paid much attention to his appearance, but he wasn’t going to outright say no to her offer, and it wasn’t like she was making it a one-time thing right now.

Smiling outwardly, though it was mostly from self amusement, she shifted her attention again from the shelves and to her friend. "I find travel to be one of my favorite parts of my profession and, when you think about it and strip everything down to the very essence of things, what you and I do is quite similar as professions of creation. As a cursebreaker, you look for extraordinary artefacts for the benefit of wizarding kind and help record history...I look for textiles and designs for self expression and create histories." It may be a stretch and a bit too abstract for Septimus to completely follow, but it made perfect sense to Candela in her mind. "What region of languages were on it?" she asked, interest clearly tickled as an admirer of such things. "I remember studying Nahuatl script and Aztec codices at Castelobruxo. I tended to get too distracted by the shapes and colors to ever retain anything though, much to the frustration of my professors. Like on the Codex Mendoza, there is this gorgeous blue on its first page...the page that depicts the founding of Tenochtitlan...a blue that was like...if you could pluck the blue from a cloudless blue summer sky and mix it with the color of the water surrounding Praia do Sancho...you could perhaps hope to get close to the color there." Pausing a moment to laugh, mostly at herself since she was willfully getting herself distracted from the main topic, she patted her flushed cheek with one hand and shook her head before looking back to Septimus. "Anyway, we were celebrating your new footings not my infatuation with color palettes on ancient artefacts."

Oh no, quite the contrary. She could read very well that he was a more subdued and quiet person - but also one who seemed to take more kindly to gentle teasing about it than others she knew. Though she also knew that she could be rather overbearing at times, even if her heart was truly in the right place. "How about this then," she said quite decidedly while spinning once in place and clasping her hands together. "Let me treat you to drinks sometime? Or dessert or a light meal or whatever you are comfortable with as a little celebration for your promotion in life. On said occasion, as another small gift...I can present you with some work shirt options. Just some new staples to your wardrobe that you can also dress up or down depending on the occasion." And she was going to find him at least one shirt with a print!
