Default Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment


Located in Diagon Alley’s North Side, Wiseacres prides itself in bringing you only the best equipment at a price no one can beat. The shop's name is emblazoned in gold letters on the large glass window to the left of the double doors. The window is home to a display of merchandise ranging from floo powder to fanged frisbees, star charts to sneakoscopes. In the middle of the display sits an advertising blackboard that every so often announces a sale.

Despite the wide array of products available, the interior of the shop is neatly organized. Upon walking in, the first things quests will notice is a display of telescopes ideal for Hogwarts students located just to the right of the doors. Maps and star/moon charts are rolled up and stacked on a rack beside the display. Games are displayed on a table toward the middle of the shop; concealers and detectors are shelved along the left wall. Several dark wood shelving units line the rest of the floor space. Each aisle is clearly marked with the type of merchandise it contains.

When you finish shopping, please make your way to the counter at the back of the shop. Here you can check out, inquire about gift wrapping or other services offered, and purchase breakable or expensive objects, such as rememberalls, hourglasses, crystal balls, and invisibility cloaks, kept in a locked glass cabinet behind the counter. In the market for a flying carpet? Those are kept behind a locked door next to the counter; only the shopkeeper can open it. Should anyone try to enter the showroom without permission, a caterwauling charm will sound. If you need help finding anything, the shopkeeper will be happy to assist!

It felt weird being back here in Diagon Alley and truth be told, TiaMarie wasn't even sure why she was here except it just felt right to walk through these streets. The streets that her aunt once walked and would never walk through again. The third wizarding war had taken a lot from them, but most importantly it took one of the nicest and most genuine people that the wizarding world had. She might have been bias, but there was no denying that Josephina Hadley HAD to have been in at least the top ten. Maybe even top five. Tia felt numb knowing her aunt would never embrace her or call just to say hi.

The creature healer wandered into Wiseacre's not entirely sure what she was shopping for and also half wanting to throw something. Maybe there was something in here that would remind her of her aunt? Like that abacus? She picked it up and slid the peg things back and forth. It felt stupid and childish, yet simultaneously stimulating.

There was some quiet music playing near the back of the shop where Ethan was known to repair a broken item or even package orders that needed sent out. He had been cha-cha-ing around the floor humming along being that guy who danced around the shop. He'd loved every second of being here so far. The customers had been great, they hadn't balked at his slightly weird habits. Who knew dancing around a shop was frowned upon by customers.

His hips swaying and arms moving to the music he nearly missed the young woman walking through the front door. Turning a 180 while snapping his fingers and swaying his hips he got around to actually look at the woman. Oh what did she need in here? "Hey, hey, welcome to Wiseacre's!" The movement to the music did not stop just because someone walked in. He loved dancing, and music, and just living honestly.

She didn't REALLY need anything in Wiseacres Wizarding Equipment. It definitely wasn't on the shopping list and it wasn't a shop Emm frequented regardless. Don't get her wrong, it had some pretty neat things but there wasn't anything she couldn't have gotten from her mum or Fox or Daddy.

Yet, here she was.

Emmerson was about to be a fourth year. They were definitely more in with the older crowd at the school than third years in all their ambiguity. It had been a rough year, not a baby anymore and professors...expected better but even then you weren't really old enough for the older kids. She wouldn't take that as an excuse anymore. At 14, she was grown. By the next summer, she would be 15--only two years from being of age.

It practically begged for her to get into some type of nonsense. What kind of girl would she be if her teens years passed so peacefully? She wasn't sneaking out anywhere? She wasn't hanging with the wrong crowd. It was dreadfully boring behaviour.

Perhaps she could get herself an invisibility cloak. Her mum had taken hers away after that whole Ezra business. If she asked to have it back, that would lead to more questions and suspicion. While she didn't CURRENTLY plan to do anything sneaky, you never knew what the new term would bring and the girl needed to have options. She needed to do better.

Now, what aisle were they?

Last summer, she hadn't managed to get to Diagon Alley because of everything that was happening. A funeral, moving into a house with a family she didn't know and then them moving their whole family into another house just to accommodate the two teenagers they had gained. Honestly, Lumi was just grateful that her world had calmed down in the last year and it meant she could get back to wandering the alley without a second thought. And buying textbooks that were a year too advanced for her, but made wonderful bedtime reading.

Lumi had no idea what it was that she wanted from Wiseacres today, but it still felt nice to peruse the aisles with money in her pocket and sweets in the other one.

Down the aisle she continued, looking at all the neat things offered while wondering how effective they really were. When you had a mother in Law Enforcement, you tended to look at how to get away with things a little differently. All these things seemed easy to thwart in one way or another, they were nothing aurors depended on, she was sure.

Lucky for her, back at school, she didn't have to worry about getting things past aurors, she just had to get them past the student population. Not....not a very difficult task.

Ooo, what was this?

Emm nicked the item off the shelf, wanting to get a better look. What happened next was nothing short of something so mortifying she wanted to sink into the floor and make a fast exist. No sooner had she grabbed it, a L O U D alarm rang off in the shop.

O_____O

"No, no no, shh! Shhhh!" There likely wasn't a single person in the shop--or this section of Diagon Alley's streets who didn't hear this alarm and just the thought of that was enough to make the girl entirely red in the face. How did she turn this thing off??????

Why was it on the shelf if you couldn't touch it???????

Ethan had heard a bell dingle dangle and was just about to come around from the back room where he was just you know trying to fold the invisibility cloaks like it really matters. Like seriously you'd never know if they were or they weren't if you didn't have the inner design hanging out. Who really cared what the inside looked li---

An alarm. Merlins long scraggly beard, what were these Hogwarts kid-os doing? Popping up from the floor he noticed the quiet girl looking around. Then around the other corner he found another girl (Emmerson) a tsk tsk coming from deep within his throat. "And what did we grab?" He asked like she was a toddler in trouble. Probably his own fault if he was being honest.

What had he set the alarm for again? Merlin he couldn't remember but he was sure he would by the time the young girl mentioned what she grabbed. Oh, OHHHHH! He remembered he was trying to prevent random thefts. Smiling at his formerly brilliant idea he at least knew the alarm worked.

Lumi was more than minding her own business and paying nobody in the shop any attention when a noise louder than the kids at home struck in the aisle she was in. With a squeal, she fell into the shelves in front of her and sent a bunch of other items onto the floor. "whAT was thAAAAAAT?!" She looked down one end of the aisle to see others looking the other way. Then looked that way too...

Emm! With wide eyes, the Gryffindor stared at the other Gryffindor and scrambled over to assist. "Put it in your top! Drown out the noise!!!" But also they definitely weren't alone now because there was an adult with them. An adult that definitely was responsible for something and that something had to be HERE. "Sheeee-- weeeeeeee didn't touch it! It just HAPPENED." Yup.

Crossing his arms and having. to put his stern face on he glanced at the young girls. He hated when he had to bring the thunder, like come on kids he wanted to be the fun guy all the time and you know here we were. Eyebrows closer together the he probably needed as he watched them, "she didn't grab it? That only goes off if you grab something. So.... want to tell me what's going on again..."

Uncrossing his arms he glanced at the girl who hadn't answered him yet (Emmerson) waiting for their answer. "Maybe I should just get your parents involved." And now he had officially stopped being the cool fun guy he liked to bel. Darn kids.

O__________O

This. Escalated. Quickly.

Emmerson blinked, trying to catch up to what was happening. Her top? Oh, yes, brilliant, she would just hide it ther--

Or not. The Gryffindor looked from Lumi to the grownup there, not at all appreciating the tone or the threat because neither were necessary. "I didn't leave a loud object on an easily reached shelf." Maybe they should consider reorganising the shop to make it less....scandalous.

"You set us up." She decided. It had to be, she hadn't done anything and now they were on the verge of having parents called in. "This is a shakedown--to make sure we buy something from the shop if we wanna keep this under wraps, but we don't. Right, Lumi? Maybe we should get our parents."

He crossed his arms and tried his dead level best not to roll his eyes at the young child. He was seriously the absolutely-est, coolest, shopkeepers. come on. OHHHHHH she thought it was a set up....

WrOnG-o

"Oh sweet sweet not so innocent child. All you'd have to do is set it back on the shelf. I don't care if you buy it or not," Do not lean down Ethan... Do not lean down and be condescending. Oh boy he was going to do it he could feel it in his bones. Reign it in. "Honestly if you want to buy it you could simply come up to the counter and ask I'll get one. But it keeps them from walking themselves out of the door. hmmm." Oh there was the condescending hum that he should not have mentioned. oops.

Default hi friend <3 popping in for a visit!
Anashti l Brat Pack l Sally & Dr. Finklestein

Braylon Mikael Sawyer was traversing Diagon Alley on one very distinct mission. Actually, no, that was a lie. TWO missions. Firstly, now that he was setting up as the Leaky Cauldron Proprietor, he wanted to go around and meet all of his new neighbors. Because Diagon Alley should be like a friendly neighborhood watch - stick up for each other and look out for each's others stores! And this was totally coming from a place of good business and entirely not loneliness.

Nope.

The second mission, was he needed to start searching for a gift for his eldest daughter soon to be MARRIED. It was a wild thought, how was one of his babies already old enough? Ignoring the fact there was at least 4 of them already old enough, it was still wild it was happening. He had to find the perfect gift for the first, but the problem was he didn't know what that gift would BE. So this he could also use as a conversation starter with his new hopefully friends.

Pushing into the store, he glanced around to make sure he wouldn't be bothering any customers before calling a loud and friendly, "Hellooooooo." and starting to scan the shelves.

Would couples remembralls make a good gift?

Ethan was doing the usual. You know digging through boxes trying to remember where he had placed that one item for the one person he had talked to last week. There had to be a note somewhere about how many they needed, right? Sighing he stood up and cracked his back. "Eh Lordy merlin when did I get so old."

Moving out from a corner he started looking at the bottom shelf a bit a way from where he was. Was that a voice. Popping his head up like a meerkat he turned around at the sound of the voice. "Hello hello." Wait that was a kind of familiar face. He'd seen it around the alley here recently.

Finally, after the year-end closing of bank books back at Gringotts, one Jace Reed was finally free to do his very late shopping. The twenty-something year old former Ravenclaw was found in Wiseacre's, hoping to find a nice magical trunk for his flat. He'd promised himself he'd live the minimalist life since moving back to England, but Jace found it close to impossible. With the amount of books he had at the moment, he was far well off from his goal of going clutter-free.

And so now, he was out shopping for the one item that may solve his (aesthetic) problem, a simple looking trunk to keep his books and other stuff away should do the trick. Jace can very well charm it to expand on its own, so it just might be the right solution to his "book hoarding" problem.

Alrighty, what a day! What. A. Day. Evil had been avoided, Dark Wizards challenged, it had aaaall gone pretty smoothly for a change. Look at that! Matt even had time for a cheeky sneak around Diagon Alley before he turned in for the night.

You know what he could do with? A nice hang ou-- NO WAAAAY. Ha! Would you believe his luck! And soooooooo he sneaked behind his old time friend. "Yo." He said in a deep, ridiculous voice. "Whaddup, dude?" He added in a pathetic imitation of his sister's American boyfriend's accent. Actually, he didn't really know if it was any good since most American accents were all the pretty similar to him.

Eh well, lol.

Moving out from a corner he started looking at the bottom shelf a bit a way from where he was. Was that a voice. Popping his head up like a meerkat he turned around at the sound of the voice. "Hello hello." Wait that was a kind of familiar face. He'd seen it around the alley here recently.
... Had they made remembralls yet that TOLD you what you forgot? Was there specially designed ones to remind you when you forgot an anniversary, or a birthday, or a fashion designer party or something? He couldn't see Mav, the most responsible of his children, forgetting anything that big but truth be told - he did not know her beau. So something made like that could have been a very handy gift for the husband to be.

And no, the big burly man was not getting weepy thinking about one of his children having a husband. It was merely a trick of the light that his eyes suddenly seemed so... sparkly. And the sniffing must have been a common cold coming on. Absolutely.

Turning when he heard the shopkeeper respond - which he could not remember name which he was suddenly feeling very terrible about - Bray moved closer and his smile slid back into place by the promise of distraction by conversation. "Hello! I'm Braylon Sawyer, new proprietor over at the Leaky Cauldron. Making the rounds and introductions. How you doing today?" He offered his hand for a handshake once he was close enough to do so.

Choices, choices, choices. Jace thought it was funny how undecided he was with a trunk. With the magic he carried, he could simply just adjust its specification according to his needs. But for practical reasons, and that Wiseacres' should make a profit out of him, he'd decided to give it a go than going through the trouble of designing his own furniture.

The man reached for a nice, clean cut magical trunk, only to be stopped by-- "Matt!" Jace's face was a bit bewildered. It wasn't like Matt, but it surely was him. He'd known this person since they were 11, so the mischief wasn't missed. "Who...are you supposed to be mimicking this time?" Jace smiled in amusement, wondering what 'trouble' Matt had in store for him.

He was already used to seeing Jace bewildered - it seemed like that was a regular occurrence when Matt was around - so he almost took it as if that was Jace's resting face. Resting bewildered face. Ha, totally a Jace thing.

About his question... "Ahh, my sister's got this boyfriend now." Actually they'd been going out for what felt like quite a while now, but Matt sometimes acted as if it was spanking new news for some reason. "I want to say he's from Boston?" He pulled a genuine thinking face as he dug around his brain. "Or something. Kid sounds pretty funny. That's not the case, though, I think he needs a bit more..." What was the word? "Oomph? Excitement in his life? NOT that Anna isn't great, that's not what I'm saying at all. Bloke's lucky to have her as girlfriend, honestly, but... I dunno, he's a bit... ordinary? Quiet?" No, not quiet, what was the word???? "Dull? Anyway, I thought I'd give him a set of Exploding Snap to see if it helped. And, of course, a Weasley's Wheeze." The Auror grinned wickedly. "He doesn't know it yet, though, so shh." Wait, did Jace even know the bloke? Not important, he would probably meet him sooner than later anyway, now that he was around.

"Let me guess: for your books?" He gestured towards the trunks Jace had been looking at.

This. This was what Jace really missed. The noise, the energy, and the things that spewed out of Matt's mouth. He sure can run his mouth, but it was something that the former Ravenclaw admired, mainly because he wasn't a talker.

As Matt talked in top-speed, Jace found himself adjusting his vocabulary once more to keep up. "Oh, I didn't he's an American." that was interesting. What was more interesting was Matt trying to coax out the poor guy's personality. "Are you sure it'll work? Maybe he's just naturally...timid." Was that the word Matt was looking for? And did he just lowkey describe him, too? "I reckon you should also consider bonding activities with him...like, bowling?" Maybe that would be more, erm...productive, if Matt wanted Anna's boyfriend to loosen up around him. "Maybe you can get yourself a girlfriend along the way as well." Jace shrugged nonchalantly as he turned his attention back to the trunk that Matt conveniently pointed out.

"...that seems to be self-replicating, yes." he knew books didn't reproduce itself, but considering Jace's speed-reading ability, it may very well be true.

"...that seems to be self-replicating, yes." he knew books didn't reproduce itself, but considering Jace's speed-reading ability, it may very well be true.
"Yeah, he's just going to uni here or something." Matt explained even though he didn't really know all the details. He then considered Jace's next words. "Well, possibly. I mean, fair play to him, he's not totally dull. You know he's um... what are they called, he's the mascot for the..." It'd help if Matt was more into Quidditch. "Falmouth? Falcons? The Falcons, yeah. He basically dresses up like a giant chicken - his words - and flaps his wings around during their games." He finished before laughing out loud. "I've seen him in his costume, it's hilarious. At least he's got sense of humour, which I appreciate." He snorted.

Bowling!? "That's not a bad idea, actually. I knew there was a reason you were a Ravenclaw!" The 29 year-old gave his friend a pat on the shoulder as a 'well done'. But get himself a girlfriend? "Weeeeeeell... look, I'm up for it, but to be a girlfriend she needs to be just right. So far, no good." Which Jace should very well know didn't mean no dates, of course. "And the way Anna and Kalen are... I dunno if a double date would be good if the girl isn't the right one. Don't want them giving the random girl wrong ideas, y'know?" Since they were a 'stablished' couple and all, Matt didn't want to risk the girl he was taking out to think they should necessarily become an item. Nah, thanks.

Matt snorted at Jace's 'self-replicating' comment. "Ahh, always the nerd. You know, you would probably get along well with Anna's boyfriend." Coming to think of it...

Huh.

Huh.
With all the colourful words and description, Jace was able to paint the perfect picture of this Kalen fellow. He, too, laughed at the image-- a giant chicken, flapping its wings. "Okay, not dull. Maybe just a tad awkward." Again, like him. "He doesn't sound so bad to me, and if he can pull off that kind of job, then I don't see why he won't be game to all...mischief." Maybe not as extreme as Matt would've hoped, but a good amount of cheekiness should do the trick.

Jace shook his head at the Ravenclaw comment in an attempt to act modest and polite, but he did pride himself when it came to logical thinking. Not that Matt wasn't logical-- he wouldn't end up an Auror, if he wasn't, but his friend of over a decade was the type to act first and pay the consequences later. "Well, the point is, ease the guy in. You don't want to spook your sister's boyfriend. I mean, they seem to be seriously involved and invested in their relationship." Jace thought that Matt wouldn't even exert the effort to know the guy if Anna and Kalen weren't dating for real. Jace went on to inspect the trunk that caught his eye, and continued his conversation with Matt. "It doesn't have to be a date per se, Matt." Jace clarified as he opened the trunk and took a nice peek inside. "Ask Kalen if he knows a girl that you can meet. No expectations...just, you know...you're looking for a buddy, and then, see where that'll take you. Just something, casual." Jace carefully closed the lid, and then went to the next trunk just beside the one he just inspected.

The former Ravenclaw shook his head in disbelief, chuckling to himself. "Smart is the new sexy, they said. So I suppose I'll stick to being one." Jace went back to this first choice, and gave it a good look before turning to Matt, "When can I meet him? I should also say hi to Anna."

"Awkward, that's it. The perfect word to describe the kid. He's a good one, but yeah, it's kind of hilarious." Matt said, nodding his head and looking around the shop. He still intended to get the guy a set of Explosive Snap anyway. "Nah, he's not that bad, I suppose I just like giving him hard time. At the end of the day, I trust Anna's judgement." He added right before gesturing to another part of the shop where his eagle-eyes had spotted the packs of explosive cards. Taking a mental note to go there when Jace was done choosing his trunk, Matt turned back to his friend.

"They do seem super serious now, it's so strange! I never though Anna would end up with anybody. I mean, no offence to her, it's just how I saw it." Maybe because he was her eldest brother. "I always thought this serious-relationship thing was only Ollie's vibe." Turned out he was wrong about that. The Auror pulled an uncertain face when Jace started talking about seeing if Kalen had a female friend. "I dunno, mate, that sounds like a set-up date to me. I mean, hanging out with my sister, her boyfriend and a female friend of his? If this is not a picture of a double date, I don't know what is." Come oonnnn, Jace could see it, couldn't he? "Me looking for a buddy?" He repeated the other guy's words before cracking up. "Your wording amuses me to no end, mate. See where it'll take me? Something casual? Yeah, all I hear is 'date, date, date.'" With that, Matt gave Jace a funny, curious look. "What do you see as a date then, if all this doesn't mean dating to you?" Curious, he was. Truthfully.

And there was Matt laughing again. "Oh, want to stay sexy, do we?" He said in jest. And when would he get to meet Kalen? "Who knows, how busy are you? Kid seems to be nearly as busy as we are and he's just a student!" Talk about a neeeeeerd. Strange, Matt never thought that was Anna's type. How wrong was he indeed. "Anna, on the other hand, not as busy." Lol. It was a joke, okay? Well, sort of. Turned out studying to become a sports healer did keep you busier than being a pro Quidditch player after all. Or maybe it was just because of their personalities.

Yeah, that sounded more like it.

"Hello! I'm Braylon Sawyer, new proprietor over at the Leaky Cauldron. Making the rounds and introductions. How you doing today?" He offered his hand for a handshake once he was close enough to do so.
Ethan glanced over at the two other youngsters... okay not that young but still most kids are significantly younger than him and to him that meant youngsters. He glanced back over at Braylon, "I'm sorry hold on a second." He turned and looked at the young men (Jace and Matt) "Hey, holler if you need me. No ruff housing in the isles, and just for the love of Merlin don't make me be the uncool old guy" He hated saying that.

Turning back toward Braylon he smiled, shook his hand "horrible manners I know but the younger ones are the ones to watch because they get into everything. Good to meet you Ethan Howland obviously Wiseacre's know it all. Just looking around and introductions today?" Not that he minded he really did enjoy chatting with people.

Jace chuckled, following Matt's gaze towards where the Exploding Snaps were kept. "I wish this Kalen fellow all the luck, then. If they are serious, then he'd have to deal with you, too." To be honest, it took a certain something to get Matt's vibe and overall energy. He may come off as a rogue sometimes, but Jace knew he meant to no harm. He hoped Matt knew that Kalen has his limits too. Again, he wouldn't want to be the cause of fights in the future. Just saying.

Honestly, was it really that unexpected? "Maybe one day, I'll get to say the exact same words you're using here..." Matt dating wasn't totally impossible. Jace was in a very long-term relationship, and he was nothing but an awkward turtle all along. All props to Mahiro, really, for putting up with him. The thought of his ex-girlfriend whom he dated for six years, made his stomach turn. "Then don't hang with Anna and Kalen when you meet this would-be-friend." Jace shrugged, turning to see another trunk that made him go all nostalgic. It was the trunk he'd been looking for. (Okay, maybe not, but how can he resist this piece?!) But before he could go and inspect it, a question was thrown his way. Jace tilted his head, wondering if it was the root of all of Matt's dating (or not dating) problem. "True, the lines are blurred between dating and hanging out, but what sets the two apart is the intention. Like I mentioned before, your intention was to make a friend. It would be a date if you start flirting around this person because that's saying you're interested." Jace nodded with a grin. And before he could continue further, they were interrupted.

Oh. Merlin. Jace's face went blank at first, then slowly broke into a smile. "Yes, of course, sir." the former Ravenclaw responded, still bewildered by the grumpy(?) shopkeeper. He looked a lot like his dad, Ryden. The lines on his face, the eyes, even the hair. But the Bostonian accent sort of ruined the image. "That was an American accent, wasn't it?" Jace leaned closer to Matt, murmuring the words in his ear.

He looked a lot like his dad, Ryden. The lines on his face, the eyes, even the hair. But the Bostonian accent sort of ruined the image. "That was an American accent, wasn't it?" Jace leaned closer to Matt, murmuring the words in his ear.
Matt laughed again at Jace's remark that Kalen would have to deal with him too. "That's true, but people say Anna and I have the same type of energy, we just channel it differently. I think he'll be fine with the fam." He gave his friend his signature cheeky grin, which, much like his energy, he also shared with his sister.

Again, the Auror snort-laughed at his friend's remark. He wanted to note that Jace was particularly funny that day, but in all fairness, Matt knew that he was right. "Yeah, well. I'm open for it to happen, I'm just not going to push it." That never worked anyway. The former Gryffindor couldn't help but be utterly amused by Jace's wording. 'Would-be-friend'. LOL. "I've got a better pool of acquaintances and know better places to find suitable mates, methinks, my friend. For all I know, Kalen only knows uni girls. And I know I might come off a little... y'know, a specific way, but that's not exactly the kind of girl I'm looking for. Too young, see." As strange as it might sound, Matt had mentally grown and matured a LOT since becoming an Auror. Hanging out with very young adults... was more of an eye-rolling opportunity for him than anything else those days. Who would've thought, eh.

He listened to what Jace had to say about what he saw as 'dating'. He looked at the guy in silence for a few seconds. "Merlin, Jace, you manage to overthink dating!" He laughed. "I should've seen it coming. A Ravenclaw and all." Typical, lol.

It wasn't until Jace's face went blank that Matt turned to where the different voice had called out from. He waved lazily at the man and left it for Jace to reply. Turning to his friend, he snorted. "Roughhousing? We're teenagers again, are we?" He said in a lower tone not to offend the guy, though he did find the remark pretty hilarious. "Simpler times, I'd be up for it." He joked with a shrug. If that was an American accent? "Yeah, I think so." He replied to Jace in the same low tone before turned around to the shopkeeper again. "OI, MATE! ARE YOU AMERICAN?" He called out pretty loudly. He mentioned roughhousing, this was as close to it as Matt would get. Just for fun, y'know. "MY FRIEND HERE WANTS TO KNOW." Was he trying to embarrass Jace? Nahhh.

Of course he was.
