Default Street Vendors


Though numerous street peddlers line the streets of Diagon Alley, customers would be wise to be wary of them. Any number of items can be found hawked on the streets daily, many useless and some illegal. One might be able to buy a cheaper wand, running the risk of it exploding during use. Bottoms have been known to fall out of the defective cauldrons bought from one of the carts. Not all is bad, though. Discounted jewelry can be bought, though the gold or gems may not be pure. One some days, a hag comes through with a cart of wind-chimes, some proclaimed to warn of burglars. Often, knick-knacks and small décor can be found in various carts. Be warned, though – sometimes the items being sold have been stolen from others.

Beyond item hawkers, various stalls are set up selling street food. Try a Cauldron Bread (a bread bowl carved out with soup or chowder served inside), stop by and grab some skewers/kebabs to go, hit up the Confetti Popcorn (the fizzy popcorn is supposedly made with real Muggle soda and fizzes in your mouth; dill pickle flavored even crunches like a pickle; berry flavored popcorn actually has dried cranberries, which goes well with the raspberry, blackberry and strawberry flavored popcorn). If you’re looking for a quick snack, the streets have enough.

That the RUDE girl had not understood the joke meant to him that she was a pureblood . That or she was a muggleborn who had lived under a rock. Because even if you did not know Batman. You knew Batman.

He was still glaring at the RUDE girl when he felt a light tap on his arm. Mr.Wayne? what? oh , he got it. He momentarily switched his glare to look over at the NICE girl (in a more friendly way) when he felt two hands on his shoulders. Before he could register what was happening, he stumbled backwards before tripping over his own feet and landed with a -THUD- on the road.

”I’M the worst?!” he half shouted from the ground as he looked up at the two girls. ”I’M not the one SHOVING someone !” Was he being petty right now? Yes he was, he even had to admit it himself because he too had said some rude things back to her but in his defense SHE HAD STARTED IT!

He jumped back up on his feet and GLARED at the girl again. If only he knew how to properly use magic . He could turn that stupid hair of hers in to propellers and watch her fly away. ”Oh but i WILL be going to Hogwarts!” his grin was back again knowing that it would annoy the girl even further. ”We might even become seat mates!”

Popcorn? long forgotten.

A small smile began to appear on Lisa’s face as he thanked her but she froze it for fear of V’s wrath. She really, really didn’t want to get on V’s bad side and she genuinely thought that the boy had been a little rude but an equivalent level of rudeness as V. Though she did feel a little bit of loyalty to V for showing her around the Alley beforehand even with V mentioning that her side gig idea was silly... She glanced down at her feet momentarily before meeting eyes with Daniel one more time after she had tapped his shoulder and then........... something physical happened.

....V happened.

Lisa had honestly been expecting another retort or a sassy remark which personally she was a fan of.... She hadn’t expected V to get physical. She gasped LOUDLY as V PUSHED the boy to the ground and she froze once more. That was so mean!!!! Sure the boy was being a jerk but did it have to result to becoming physical??!?!

V! she cried and was about to take a step forward to intervene but before she could the boy was on his feet and V hand turned to her. Instantly Lisa could tell that she was mad and also hurt (because Lisa hadn’t stepped up for her) but agreed that skewers were a good choice. Lisa hadn’t stepped up for V because (1) V had been kinda rude to Daniel and (2) she didn’t want to make either one of them an enemy. She didn’t even know what Hogwarts was like but based on the rumors she had learned... she didn’t want to be on someone’s bad list just yet with you potentially ending up already on the bad list from the school itself!!

Why would I LIE to you about knowing him?” she asked, an annoyed edge in her voice as she gave V a glare. They knew each other longer, yes? Surely V knew she was somewhat nice.... “I’m OFFENDED that YOU would have even say that.” Lisa HUFFED and crossed her arms over her chest. “Besides - Sure. He was being rude but so were you.... V... you didn’t have to push him!! What if he got HURT?” She bit her lip to stop herself from cheekily adding something about who would defend Gotham in Batman’s failure? Where was the Catwoman they needed? Lisa stanned that Queen. But anyway back to not laughing... She didn’t want to get a death glare from V. “What if it got out of hand?” And then she turned to Daniel. “And you didn’t have to tell her she was stupid. That wasn’t nice.

They were better than escalating it, right?

Absolutely not because Daniel said that he was going to Hogwarts too and even had the nerve to smile back at V. And say that they were going to be seat mates... What if they ended up in the same house? Those two would surely kill each other? What if the three of them were all in the same house? Lisa would surely hex them....

....I’m going to get skewers.


Victoria was so mad that she was shaking, and she instantly regretted pushing this random boy to the ground because she KNEW it was mean, but she couldn't help feeling so GOOD ABOUT IT but then - but then -

HE WAS SMIRKING AT HER. OOooh he was VILE. Simply VILE. And Lisa's words didn't help at all. She was basically fussing at her, and V thought that was THICK considering LISA wasn't in charge, but Lisa was considered a friend at this point, and she didn't like a FRIEND judging her, and she couldn't hELP THE TEARS POOLING IN HER EYES.

She didn't WANT skewers anymore. She wanted to cry all alone in her ROOM with Prince Charleston (her yorkie) and hug her dad. So she did what, she was sure, anyone else would do in her shoes and RAN AWAY.

To cry.

"Ugh!"

She whipped around to where the projectile had come from while trying to get some of the popcorn out of her hair, but she didn't see Atlas for a moment.


When Quinn heard the container hit his mother, he let out the tiniest squeak. Atlas was in for it now. But then Atlas was next to him, and he barely processed what Atlas said before he ripped his arm out of his mother's semi-distracted grip. He wanted to go. Atlas was who he wanted to go with. He wanted to be around Atlas forever and ever.

And then they were running. And his hand was in Atlas's. And it felt right.

A split second too late Catherine noticed Atlas was beside her. Before she could tighten her hold on her son he had ripped it away, causing her to stumble.

"QUINN! GET BACK HERE THIS INSTANT!" she shrieked as she regained her composure. But they had gotten lost in the crowd.

"QUINN!"


Quinn could hear his mother's shrill cries as they made their way through the crowd. It reminded him of the cockatrices they dealt with last term—that was the first day he knew he would be Atlas's friend forever. That was when they promised each other. No lies.

Quinn felt that light of summer in his heart now, running with Atlas, not knowing where they were going but knowing it would be better than where he came from. Quinn could go live at Atlas's house with Aries and Andromeda and Mr. Flamsteed and Mrs. Flamsteed and he would be around magic and brightness and people that cared about him and that he cared about and he could bake for them and start a garden in their backyard and he could visit his Gram whenever he wanted and... and... and.....

...then reality set in. He could hear another shriek from his mother behind him, closer than the last. He slowed his running a bit. "Atlas... where are we going?"
Atlas had done his share of crazy things. Most of them had been due to the influence of Aries and his entirely voluntary reluctant desire to appease his brother's shenanigans while indulging his own curiosity. Attempting to be superheroes and defy the laws of gravity (WITH capes), playing Chubby Bunny with marshmallows or whatever food they could find in the pantry, playing 'hide the pet rock' without letting dad in on the game, and the craziest of all shenanigans, confuse astronomy with astrology and Star Wars with Star Trek in front of dad.

But this was crazy. Really crazy. And Atlas was not one to do things on this much of a whim and make things up as he went along. He liked to read through the entire LEGO instructions first to see how every single piece would fit together to create the end structure and then go back and reread it a second or third time just because. Also lay out all the pieces in order of use before starting. This was particularly important with robotics and making sure one did not have any screws loose.

"I...I..." That was a million galleon question, Quinn, and this Gryffindor had absolutely no idea where he was going with this. "...Idon'tknow..." Was that a bad thing to admit at this time? Probably. Absolutely. He just knew that they needed to get AWAY from that woman and her clutches because she was giving off some serious bad vibes and her sharp face and menacing grip reminded him a little too much of a grindylow...and he would not let her drown his best friend! "My dad...my dad!" exclaims as though this was the most ingenious thought ever. "At the Ministry! He'll know what to do!"

Quinn listened to Atlas's... plan? and his heart sank a bit. He knew already, but... this just confirmed it. This freedom was short-lived, but... it was a freedom nonetheless. A momentary freedom.

As they ran Quinn scanned the storefronts, then tugged Atlas into a narrow alley in between two of the shops. Another scream from his mother resounded down the street. Other pedestrians were getting visibly worried about the situation.

Quinn pulled Atlas into a tight hug. "Atlas... thank you for caring so much about me... you're... my best friend in the entire world." He could feel the tears pricking his eyes, but he couldn't show Atlas any fear if he wanted him to listen. He blinked them back and steadied his breath before continuing."But... this isn't going to work..." He released Atlas from the hug and looked him in the eyes, gripping his shoulders. "You have to go, okay? It's already bad for me and there's no changing that. But this... it's just going to make it worse for both of us. Think about it for a second. This is kidnapping, Atlas. You have to leave me before you get in really serious trouble, okay?" He knew Atlas would be worried about him, so he put on a brave face. "I've been okay. I'll be okay. Okay?" He nodded and eyed Atlas expectantly.

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

Daniel had gotten ready to retort back whatever Victoria was going to say when he had been stopped dead in his track. He gaped over at the nicer girl when she began scolding them both. Huh. Seemed she had more spark than he originally thought. Interesting.

Still, Lisa opening her mouth had schocked the first year a little bit and he closed his mouth before his gaze went back to Victoria. And it was at that time that he saw a shift in her eyes. Was she...... Was she CRYING?!

Feeling a TAD bit guilty about making a girl cry but also wanting to uphold his own ego, Daniel watched as the girl ran away without a word.

He was NOT going to run after her to apologize. If there was anyone who had to apologize FIRST it was HER! If she had not used that bratty attitude and tone he would never had done any of this. It was her own fault.

Daniel turned to Lisa. "Don't you have someone to run after to?" he didn't want to snap at her but he was feeling extremely annoyed right now. He scoffed and abruptly turned around. He still wanted popcorn.

Dad had an answer for everything. Even if they were...weird answers. They were still answers.

But then suddenly the Gryffindor was being pulled down an alley and Atlas knew that this was NOT the way to the Ministry. Maybe to a rubbish bin or two though...so maybe Quinn was about to suggest that they hide in those? There had been worse ideas...

...or hug. That was...a plan too? Maybe. Thing winging it thing was exhausting. Being taken off guard made his return hug delayed and not nearly as tightly as he would have wanted to. There were also words and those words were distracting and confusing. "Wh-wh-what?" Not that this plan wasn't going to work, in his gut Atlas already knew that was the truth. It was...the kidnapping that sort of...really stung. Getting caught up on words and their meanings would do that. "...but...but I'm not...am I?" he asked, eyes wide and slightly horrified. "....but...but this isn't against your will...is it?" It didn't SOUND like it and it didn't feel like it either. "I'd...I'd never make you do something against your will..." Did Quinn know that his mom sounded a lot like a harpy? Because she sounded like a harpy. And then he was struck with another terrifying thought, the sort had his insides all twisted and knotted. "...what...what will she do?" His eyes widened a bit more and turned all wiggly with his own pending tears. "...I...I already spent a term not be able to be your friend and close to you...I don't...I can't...not again...we can't..."

Quinn quickly shook his head. "No, Atlas, I want to go with you so badly. I'd follow you into the Forbidden Forest if I could," he chuckled a bit, trying to liven the situation before he got serious again. "But... my mother wouldn't see it that way. Neither would the police. And if I don't get back to her.... that's the way this is headed." He hoped that would put it into perspective for Atlas, or at least get him to stop worrying that he was horrible. He's never done anything wrong, in Quinn's eyes. He's the most perfect friend ever.

A bubbling of despair rumbled in Quinn's stomach at Atlas's next comment, but he subdued it quickly. He had to be the rational one in this moment. He couldn't let his emotions get the better of him. Quinn shook his head. "I... I don't know. B-but I know that... I'm going to try my best to get back to you, okay? Even if... even if it's not for a long time... I'll come back to you." Quinn had to stop himself from talking, feeling his voice about to break.

Another scream from his mother. This one was close and frantic. Quinn snapped back to his senses. "I'm sorry, Atlas, but we don't have time. I have to go. And so do you," Quinn said as he wrapped Atlas up in another quick hug. "I love you so much, Atlas," platonically, of course, "I... I'll see you at school, okay?" Quinn released him from the hug and gave him one last smile. He was about to walk away, but... this could be the last time he was seeing Atlas for a long time, maybe even ever, and... he thought... maybe...

You know what? Yeah. Screw you, Mom.

Quinn turned back for a moment and gave Atlas a quick peck on the cheek before rushing out of the alley. His ears were piping hot as he ran towards his mother. "Mom?"

What a mess......

Waterworks threatened to fall down V’s eyes and Lisa knew that look all too well... Fight or Flight. V flew... which Lisa hadn’t been expecting but noted that as an interesting observation. Perhaps she was embarrassed by her own behaviour which if it were Lisa... She certainly would be. The again she couldn’t help but feel a little bad for V. The other girl had been kind to her (and a snob too) so had she really deserved the harsh talking? And was it seriously harsh words?

Anywho...

V fled the scene, leaving Lisa and Daniel standing close-ish. She felt like she was going to be sick from the uneasy feeling dwelling in her stomach and toes. She just wanted to run after V and apologize buuuuut then again- part of her didn’t. V had totally been out of line with pushing Batman. Her eyes quickly flicked to Skewer Boy-Batman who looked like he was still shocked that she had said something. She sighed and turned to watch V’s retreating figure. However, she didn’t let V’s sudden departure phase her. Of course, she felt guilty, doubt, and just terrible on the inside but she wasn’t going to show it. Instead, she just folded her arms. She wasn’t in the wrong, was she? She had just spoken the truth.

Daniel’s comment did not sit well with her. She stared at him. “I DON’T run away.” Pause. Oh he said run after? She flushed, embarrassed that she had misheard him. “And I shouldnt run after her.....She has a temper...It’s better to let her calm down before she pushes someone else or blows down someone’s house.... If I were in her shoes, I wouldn’t want to do anything but hug my brother’s cat.” She looked to the ground and kicked a couple of loose pebbles and more quietly added. “I didn’t do anything wrong... i was just telling the truth.” She shrugged. She’d write an apology to V later IF she felt guilty (which she probably would). “BESIDES I want skewers AND popcorn. No tantrum is going to stop me from getting them.... And yes, I feel bad. I made the situation worse,” she said, following his lead to turn abruptly. Hmph. Two could play that game. She even stuck her nose up higher in the air to make herself appear taller but this kid had at least five inches on her. Hmph. She bit down on her lip to stop it from wobbling.

She was about to walk away but stopped herself. “I’m sorry that she pushed you or didn’t offer you popcorn... I’m going to get popcorn. Do you want popcorn or skewers?” she said, hopefully offering the boy a peace treaty for the mess that just had occurred and the mess that they had all contributed too. She’d bring popcorn for V later....

Bit ironic that an excursion into the Forbidden Forest HAD been on the Gryffindor's mind since the beginning of last term when he had gone to see Professor Williamson and pleaded his case about seeking help from the creatures in the forest. Apparently, because some morons had set the forest on fire the term before, there was nothing but bad blood between the forest dwellers and Hogwarts. Imagine how much could have been accomplished if the centaurs and acromantulas and unicorns (oh my!) had been willing to come to the school's aid?! So, clearly, a diplomatic mission was required and Atlas really REALLY wanted to see an acromantula in person.

He wasn't following Quinn's logic at all, and not just because his thoughts were distracted, and he could think up about a dozen counter points to Quinn's one point. Picking things apart to make them work was not exclusive to robotics, you know? But anytime Atlas opened his mouth to speak, Quinn proved that he was not quite done ... or the words were just catching in his throat ... or Harpy Kingsley's shrieks made him jump (but not quite make him feel the need to relieve himself. Maybe he should be calling her Banshee Kingsley instead. That was a more accurate reference considering her SCREAMING.

But first...more hugs. Yes.

The 'I love you' burned his ears (Quinn's breath tickled the one too since he was so close range at the moment) and singed his cheeks. It was not a word thrown out that much in the Flamsteed residence, though not for a lack of it. Dad always kept his emotions close to his chest and got all kinds of fidgety whenever feelings were talked about, but dad sure knew how to show it through his actions. Mom was the more empathetic one and the Saturday morning yoga sessions were all about centering themselves and listening to their emotions in the moment, but even then love was not uttered all that much and once again more something that was showed through nonverbal communication. So...that must be it. Why his face felt so hot and it probably looked like he had been out in the sun too long. He had also just been running with Quinn so...that was a factor too. Body overheating from the sudden physical exertion...

...yes. Yes. That was why. Yes. Absolutely.

Also explained why his heart was galloping like a centaur....right?

"Quinn...I..." He was tripping over his words as the Ravenclaw pulled away. Tripping over them while they were stuck in a thick layer of sticky honey, which felt more uncomfortable than eating an entire box of Ton-Tongue Toffees in one sitting.

And then...that happened.

Entire face engulfed in metaphorical flame, his blue eyes widened and he felt certain that he would be able to remember the precise place Quinn's lips had touched his cheek for the rest of his life. Stunned, the only thing the 12-year-old blonde could do was stand with his fingers over the spot and stare ahead as the form of his friend ran towards the light that extended into the Alley proper.

"I..." Feel an affection for you too.

It was probably for the best that he stay back here anyway, right?

Just before Quinn exited the small alleyway, he dared one last glance at Atlas. And his expression was.... something Quinn couldn't quite put his finger on. It was unreadable, especially from the small look that Quinn had allowed himself to take.

As he ran out into the Alley, all he could think was one thing.

He thinks you're a freak. He thinks you're a freak. He thinks you're a freak.

Until Quinn finally made it to his mother.

Catherine whipped around to her son, her face redder than a beet. "Quinn!"

Catherine ran up to him, arms outstretched... then grabbed his shoulders and started shaking him. She leaned down so her face was level with Quinn's. "Where is he?"


Quinn leaned away from his mother and shut his eyes, shaking his head. "I... I don't know, he ran away!" Truthfully, he could have by now. Quinn wouldn't have known.

Catherine huffed as she stood up, looking around for any sign of the insolent boy. She grabbed Quinn's arm again, two times tighter than before, then started dragging him down the Alley. "Well, we are going to find him and whoever's watching him and we're going to have a conversation. And if we don't find them, then we're going to have a conversation at home."

Quinn didn't say anything as he struggled to keep up, tripping over his own feet. He didn't want to have a conversation, but... he didn't want Atlas to get in trouble more.

Default Lisa with mentions of Victoria~
A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

The girl had a temper? ”I had not noticed that” he answered sarcastically with a roll of his eyes as he watched Victoria in the distance. “Is she always that dramatic?” He had not even been that mean. And she was the one who had pushed him to the ground so why was she the one crying?!

Girls were weird.

Her sudden outburst was met with a raise of the eyebrow but he said nothing and while Lisa was rambling on about Victoria needing space and hugging her brother’s cat, Daniel’s jaw clenched a little. Did he look like he cared? No. So why was she still talking to him instead of going after her ‘friend’ ?


Still, he couldn’t get too annoyed at this girl because she was being nice to him by offering to buy him some popcorn. Putting his hands in his pockets , Daniel shrugged his shoulders. ”I’ll take the popcorn” he said as he walked back to the line again. "Caramel flavoured" if she was paying he wasn’t saying no. Even rich people liked free food. ”Your name’s Lisa correct?” he asked as he turned his head to look at her while he waited behind a young mother and her child. ”I’m Daniel” he introduced himself truthfully this time. See? Be nice to him and he would be nice to you.

She noted the sarcasm and it brought a small, amused smile to her lips. Yeah, the push kinda gave the whole temper thing away plus the GLARING earlier. She chuckled when he asked her if Victoria was always dramatic. “I think so... I thought that I had offended her the first we met. I made a comment that pure bloods were snobby and she thought I was calling her a snob which.... I wasn’t... intentionally.” But V had kinda been a snob but a nice one. She shrugged her shoulders. “We worked past it. I’m muggleborn so I guess I don’t know better.” She kicked a pebble away from her that was near her feet before sighing. Lisa looked up and noted that he probably didn’t want to hear too much more so she stopped herself abruptly and then quickly ended it with. “Long story short. Yes is the answer to your question.

Dramatic, short tempered but also somewhat sweet? She hoped that V and her could still be friendly after this but there was no way that she was going to run after V right now..... Not at all especially after what had just transpired.

She was glad he had accepted the offer for popcorn. If he was going to Hogwarts, she was hoping that they would both start off on the right foot. He had a sense of humor and she liked that. Lisa turned to look at Daniel as he spoke up and introduced himself to her. She extended her hand towards him to shake his hand and nodded. “Yes, I’m Lisa. Lisa Nam. It’s nice to meet you, Daniel.” She fished into her pocket for her little wallet where she fished out the right amount for three bags of popcorn. One for Daniel, one for her, and one for V. She’d mail it to her later. As they waited in line, she had a burning question to ask him so she just had to ask. “So which Batman villain would win in a duel? Harley Quinn, the Joker, the Riddler, or Poison Ivy?” she asked.

Obviously a very serious question that she needed to know the answer too.
