Default Butterbeer Cart


Has all of your shopping worn you out and left you in need of some hydration? From the south side of Diagon Alley, the Leaky Cauldron is quite a trek, especially when the cobbled street has exploded with witches, wizards, and children alike. Do not fret, however. A crimson red cart, stationed between Janus Galloglass and Noltie's Botanical Novelties, with golden lettering spelling out 'BUTTERBEER' is here to save the day! For many years, an old witch has been taking advantage of this spot and has provided many with a refreshing sugary butterscotch concoction and even a tasty snack. Sadly, this lovely old witch passed away during the attack on Diagon Alley but her photograph sits proudly on display on the cart.

Early in the morning, the grandson of the old witch rolls out her cart and remains at the usual spot until the sun goes down. For just a Galleon, you can enjoy an all-yo-can-drink mug of the finest Butterbeer in London. During the summer months, one can purchase a frozen Butterbeer; whereas in the frigid winter it can be bought warm. But drinks is not all that there is to offer -- for just a handful of Sickles, some Butterbeer-flavoured fudge, potted cream, or ice cream can be enjoyed.

"Why do they put up her picture? Why don't they give out free butterbeer in her memory?" Mercer bounced in place a little, just THINKING about getting both the frozen butterbeer and keeping his magic galleon. "What's her name? How'd she die? Should we have a moment of silence in her honor?"

If she had been able to go out with her oldest brother, just the two of them, like she had wanted to...then she would have fulfilled all her school shopping obligations by now.

Alas. Here she was still with plenty to do on the list and the next trip out now having to accommodate for her grandfather too.

Spotting Mercer's profile as she strolled after escaping gushing over Yukie's robe fitting, her new companion on humming on her shoulder, the raven haired girl quickly change course to intercept and was even more pleased to see that her Little Spectre was with him as well. Were they friends? That made things so much easier. "You mean you can't sense her?" she questioned with almost a gleeful tone as she slinked up between the two of them. "This cart is teething with shadows." Smiling back and forth between the both of them, she pulled a little bag of salt from her pocket and poured a bit into her palm before offering to do the same to her friends. "And they have to keep her picture up there," she continued as she further invited herself into their conversation. Whoever it was that they were. "It is the easiest way to preserve her spirit. As long as mortal eyes have gazed upon her image, she will be remembered and soul protected, otherwise it will cease to exist and she fade into oblivion."

Salt in her palm she closed her fist and spun around, slowly, counter clockwise while little the granules slowly slip out and sprinkled on the ground and over her black sneakers.

Milo nodded. Dead. Yes. Very much perished and, it was likely, interred somewhere. Or scattered. He side-eyed the cart.

There wasn't time to answer the rest of those questions, what with needing a moment to let the thoughts roll around in his head before they formed words, and the words fell into sentences suitable for human ears. No time, because then there was a Mitsuki present, and she covered some of it. Sort of. Milo kept his own answers to himself, and shook his head at the offer of salt.

Waiting until she was done, and doing her salt spins, Milo continued on as though this was the most normal thing in the world. "She was killed. Right here," he said, in a vague sort of way, moving to balance on one foot, wriggling it free from his loosely fitting shoe to reveal a lurid green striped sock, then did the same with the other, on which he wore a purple version of the same sock. The shoes lay discarded on the ground. Better. "I don't think a moment of silence will do anything. Some people light candles." Milo didn't, but some did.

Which was why Bella wore no jacket or other similar fall clothes.

Taking another sip of the icey delicious substance she hoped it'd cool her off fast and make her look less sweaty and hot. Smiling brightly and enthusiatically Bella said "Yes I am, aren't you? It will be awesome to get to learn new tips and tricks from the professionals, don't you think Jude?" If Bella had enough money left after buying her school books then maybe she could buy that gobstones book she had been eyeing last week.


Jude laughed his signature soft laugh that matched his soft spoken nature. “We’d better be sure we don’t get burnt to crisps.” Or cooked to the level of crispy bacon. He took a healthy swig of the cool butterbeer. The beverage was something that he could drink all day, actually.

“I sure am. I’m most excited to get some training done with Mr. Atreyu-Rehman. He’s one of the professional players that inspires me. I met him twice, both times at matches, of course. He seems pretty down to earth. We all know he’s talented and guess what, Bella? He had offered to show me some moves even before I knew we would have training.” Jude wasn’t one for bragging and it certainly wasn’t his intention now even if it sounded like it. “But who is your favourite player?” It literally just occurred to him that he didn’t know who Bella most admired.

"Suki!" Mercer happily put a pinch of salt from her offered handful and stuck it in his mouth. Not butterbeer-adjacent, and not really a snack at all. His face puckered, but he continued like he hadn't even noticed. "You know... this guy?" He jerked his head toward the other boy. The one who knew about dead people.

Maybe everyone was an expert on dead people but him. Suki spoke about spectres and spirits like they visited her all the time, and this guy here knew about the dead witch of the butterbeer stand (DWotBS). And then there was Mercer, who had NEVER met a ghost and wasn't even haunted a little bit. Life was truly unfair.

"It's probably very sad, though. That she died here and people see her face when all they want is potted cream." It almost made him sad, but Mercer was untouched by tragedy in his short life, and he didn't really know how to feel sad about something THAT sad. He glanced at the boy's stocking feet and felt a certain way about that, at least.

"I'm Mercer."

Jude's laugh smittened Bella to laugh softly too. "Yes, I don't want my skin to smell like bacon." Taking a long cool sip of her butterbeer her eyes turned big with awe as Jude shared that he was getting some personal training from Mr Atreyu-Rehman. "How fun for you Jude! I didn't know that Mr Arteyu-Rehman offered personal training tips to youngsters? I hope he teaches you some new tricks, but not too many because I want to have a shot at beating you in the school games." And also when their U-17 the hippogriffs and firecrabs went head to head on the gobstones field. Taking another sip of the wonderful cool drink Bella held on to her answer for a few moments. "My favourite player I'd say is Sidney Foster. She is so cool and her moves in the games usually leads to scored points." And many times to match wins.

In Jude’s opinion, bacon smelt good - at least when it was frying - but he supposed it wouldn’t be an acceptable smell to have about humans. Now, he tried to look modest. If he hadn’t been excited about the entire training activities, eh wouldn’t even have brought up personally knowing Mr. Atreyu-Rehman. In fact, Bella was the only person he had told who was outside of his immediate family. “He said I reminded him of himself when he was mt age. Did you know he was also a Hufflepuff?”

Jude laughed again. “I’d be more than happy to show you the moves too. That is, if you don’t learn them at the training sessions first.” Imagine how much more competitive they’d both be at the sport! “Sidney, is quite good,’’ the Hifflepuff agreed, awe seeping into his voice. “There are certainly a good number of great players.” He thought them over mentally, making a list in his head: Mr. Atreyu-Rehman, Sidney, Lynnia Par, Riskel Snicket... It wasn’t an exhaustive list, he realised as he checked it over. “Don’t you wish that Gobstones was as popular as Quidditch?”

Mercer, however, would always need it. She just had a feeling that he was like a magnet for bad energies and should probably just shower in salt each morning before starting the day.

"We light a candle for grandmother sometimes or leave food offerings," she nodded in confirmation. It was always the summer trip during August back to Japan for such traditions, grandpa insisted upon it and it was nice to get to see Uncle Ryu while they were over there too. She glanced down as her non-Mercer companion freed himself from...what had he called them...feet prisons? Feet prisons. She mentally shrugged it off and instead turned her attention back to her fellow kelpie hunter.

"I do. He is a friend." And she called him her Little Spectre but that was private. "So it would be convenient if we all could be friends and share a compartment and boat on September first." Just planning ahead a bit so she wasn't left behind by her more easily sociable siblings. "It is only sad if you assign it to be. The sadder thing would be that what happened here is forgotten and she too." She paused a moment, pensive as she looked at the old witch's photo and then left a little pile of salt in front of it. "Perhaps people who do not wish to respect her memory do not deserve potted cream."

Milo looked between the other two, lifting up onto his socked toes and back down again a couple of times, blinking hard. He said nothing, but tried to piece all this together about what or was not sad about the dead butterbeer witch who may or may not be interred in her own butterbeer cart. "Probably," he repeated, eyeing the cart again, and then the photo. They stood photos on coffins sometimes, not that he'd ever been to see one in person. "Perhaps."

He resumed his silence for another moment or two, watching Mitsuki pour some of her salt onto the cart, a little pile as white as snow. Then he turned back to the... Mercer, and Milo tilted his head a little to study the Mercer from an angle, almost out of the corner of his eye. "Hello Mercer. Are we friends?" Rose and Papo Jake would be happy, but Milo didn't mind either way, had not even been aware of his friendship with Mitsuki, was not familiar with the sensation in general, and didn't have another point of reference. He looked at Mitsuki next, and pushed up onto his toes again, and balanced on his purple foot. "The cosmos recommends criminal activity."

At least sun burns were okay in comparison to other burns, but Bella did really not want to smell like something just taken out of the fryer. "Jude, can we go sit behind the cart in the shade for a bit?" She wondered with a hand gesture towards the relative shade behind the cart. The cart owner could say no but hopefully he wouldn't. Bella could try to use her snakette charm on him if it was needed. She wanted to get out of the heat and fast.

Considering Jude's statement Bella shook her head in response. "No I don't think I've read anywhere that Mr Artreyu-Rehman was badger, but that's cool. You are really following in his footsteps." She said with a little awe in her voice.

"Thanks, I'd like that," Bella said with a slight blush seeping onto her cheeks. "The training sessions will most likely be crowded and action packed so it's better if you can teach me the moves sometime at school. If you are up for it Jude?" Maybe they could become great players someday like Sidney and Lynnia.

Agreeing Bella said thoughtfully "I wonder why gobstones isn't as popular as quidditch. Hasn't gobstones been around as long as quidditch has?"

"This is a real deep conversation. I don't think I ever had one of those before," Mercer held up his galleon to show it both to them. Casually, so they could be impressed but not overwhelmed by his wealth. "And I want to keep having this conversation, but I got this galleon to spend, and I'm having trouble with focus? Y'see? Like how can we talk about a sad dead gran-witch and also about the ENDLESS CAPACITY FOR JOY contained in this galleon???"

He wasn't ignoring the question of being friends, since he was already friends with Suki and since he accepted the inevitability of friendship with Milo. These are the things that happen. "Yeah, friends and compartment and boat. Oh! The squid! Will we see the squid? Can you make the squid just... show up?" He rolled that galleon between his fingers again. They couldn't move on until he made up his mind on what to buy.

"How do you communicate with the cosmos? Is it like right into your brain, or are there signs?" He watched for signs, but he didn't know what to look for. "What sort of criminal activity?"

Jude didn’t see any harm that could be done if they moved into the shade. He readily nodded and gestured for Bella to lead the way. His skin would probably thank him later for agreeing to get out of the sun anyway. Not literally but you know…

The Hufflepuff tried to look modest, even though of course, he was super pleased at the way in which the Gobstones aspect of his life was going. “He’s pretty great and I hope I can at least match up to half his talent.” Jude didn’t plan on making a career out of Gobstones but he would at least like to put his best foot forward.

The reason for the blushing was beyond Jude. He couldn’t figure out if Bella was embarrassed to be asking him about showing her the new moves. She really had no way to feel that way if that was indeed the case. “It wouldn’t be a problem,” he said firmly. Jude considered her question. “I would like to think that it has been. I suppose the entire thing about the goo being shot at players is offputting.” Jude lifted his shoulders in a shrug. “It’s not that bad though. Hey, Bella. Do you want to be a professional Gobstones player someday?”

Bella silently thanked Merlin for having Jude readily agree with her wish to get out of the shade. Wasting no time she lead the way forward and when they got around the cart she eased down in the shade on the grass with a small sigh of welcome relief. Her skin would hopefully stop looking pink and plushie soon. "I'm sure you can become as good as Mr Artreyu is if that's what you really want, Jude?" Bella wasn't dreaming big, she just played gobstones because it was fun and didn't involve balancing on a think broomstick high up in the air.

"Cool, maybe we can meet in the dungeons in the first week of classes and practice those new moves before dinner?" Bella suggested. Jude obviously took gobstones as one of his extra curriculars too. Wrinkling her nose she laughed "I know the goo and smell really puts a damper on it's appeal. Do you think it's possible to make the goo less icky? Like if you perfume it or something would that help?" Bella had no idea if that was even possible. She'd be willing to experiment though if Jude thought it could be done.

Shocked quiet, Bella considered Jude's question for several minutes before she answered truthfully. "I don't know. Maybe? I haven't really thought so far ahead you know? I really love gobstones though, it's a fun sport."

Jude too revelled in the coolness which the shade provided. He took another swig of his butterbeer; the contents of his bottle were now at the halfway point. The bottle was lowered and he lifted his shoulders in a small shrug. “I’m not really looking to make it a profession but that might change. At present, I really just enjoy competing and playing for Hufflepuff and the Junior Firecrabs.”

The Hufflepuff nodded. “Sounds like a good plan. It’s a good thing we’re not preparing for OWLs this year. That means we can schedule a lot of practice. As much as we can manage, that is.” Their practice sessions could work for both of them: Bella could teach him stuff he didn’t know and vice versa. A win-win situation!

“I’m not sure but I don’t see why some time something can be invented that makes the gob more tolerant.” The Hufflepuff considered the Slytherin. “I really think you could be recruited for another team in a few years. You should consider making Gobstones a career.” This was just his two knuts.

The cool air felt nice against her sweaty and clammy skin. Taking another wonderful sip of ice cold butterbeer showed Bella that her drink was almost empty. Nodding in understanding she said "Yes, you've got your future ahead of you. You don't need to decide now what you want to work with as an adult." They would though in a few years need think more about it as they took their owls and later newts. "Do you know will what extra curriculars we take now matter when we apply to study at university?"

It was felt nice to know that Jude enjoyed playing gobstones like she did. Could they please get away from the seriousness of professions? Determined to lighten the mood a little or at least try Bella asked "What did you think the gob smelled like the first time you smelled it in a game? To me it smelled like rotten apples."

Blushing from ear to ear at Jude's words of praise and predictions Bella tried to wave it away "Oh thanks Jude really. We'll see, I don't know if I want to make gobstones a profession either. There are other things I like too."

"Probably," he repeated, eyeing the cart again, and then the photo. They stood photos on coffins sometimes, not that he'd ever been to see one in person. "Perhaps."

He resumed his silence for another moment or two, watching Mitsuki pour some of her salt onto the cart, a little pile as white as snow. Then he turned back to the... Mercer, and Milo tilted his head a little to study the Mercer from an angle, almost out of the corner of his eye. "Hello Mercer. Are we friends?" Rose and Papo Jake would be happy, but Milo didn't mind either way, had not even been aware of his friendship with Mitsuki, was not familiar with the sensation in general, and didn't have another point of reference. He looked at Mitsuki next, and pushed up onto his toes again, and balanced on his purple foot. "The cosmos recommends criminal activity."
Quote:

Casually, so they could be impressed but not overwhelmed by his wealth. "And I want to keep having this conversation, but I got this galleon to spend, and I'm having trouble with focus? Y'see? Like how can we talk about a sad dead gran-witch and also about the ENDLESS CAPACITY FOR JOY contained in this galleon???"

He wasn't ignoring the question of being friends, since he was already friends with Suki and since he accepted the inevitability of friendship with Milo. These are the things that happen. "Yeah, friends and compartment and boat. Oh! The squid! Will we see the squid? Can you make the squid just... show up?" He rolled that galleon between his fingers again. They couldn't move on until he made up his mind on what to buy.

"How do you communicate with the cosmos? Is it like right into your brain, or are there signs?" He watched for signs, but he didn't know what to look for. "What sort of criminal activity?"

Was it deep? Mitsuki was not sure that she agreed with Mercer but she also tended to disagree with him about many things as it seemed to be the nature of their friendship. So she mentally shrugged her shoulders to the remark and instead focused on his proclamation that his galleon could buy happiness. Something else she would disagree with. "Perhaps," she offered, using Milo's word of the moment, while tapping her cheek with her index finger. "You could purchase three butterbeers from the cart, that would pay homage and indulge in your...material glee." Sort of.

But also, why was it that neither Milo nor Mercer were commenting on her shoulder companion? She has worked hard on getting Pistachio to be this particular shade.

Mitsuki did not care all that much for meeting the giant squid, but if Mercer had that ambition then she would help him achieve it. Though she did not know much about doing so from their boats as they crossed their first night. "I'm most keen on meeting the Hogwarts house ghosts myself," she countered. "And the school poltergeist." Perhaps Moaning Myrtle...though she sounded entirely too dreary, even for Mitsuki. "All I want for this school term is to befriend one of them."

Glancing back at her Little Spectre, she tucked a bit of black hair behind her ear and felt the wind brush over her cheek. "Hmmm..." she murmured through pursed lips and wrinkled nose. "There are signs." To answer his question, though Mitsuki was not sure she was catching what the Little Spectre was. It would not be the first time her and he stumbled into some youthful scandal, so she would wait to see how he elaborated.

Saint Stylinson (TM) was truly living up to his name today, running errands on behalf of his chaotic household, where he didn't even LIVE these days. Honestly, he deserved compensation for all of his efforts. He lived quite the difficult life as a first year law student in university. Imagine, on top of his rigorous studies, he still went out of his way (the very goodness in his heart), to purchase (with his hard earned ... allowance) to buy things for his (ungrateful) parents. And YET, everyone still had the audacity to complain about him. A testament to the hardship he lived through. Alexander Stylinson deserved better. #JusticeforAlexander #PasstheButterbeer #SaintWithoutUnrecognition.

Also deserved? A frozen butterbeer.

Listen. If he were going to run about the city for other people's errands, he'd be treating himself on his parents' dime. It's what everyone would have wanted. So before he even stepped foot into any of the shops, he made a pit stop at the butterbeer cart, ordered himself a frozen cup and chatted up the cart attendant while he waited for his order.

As one does.

As one does.
Not-Saint Stylinson wasn't the only person out in the alley to accomplish their household duties. Roma found that designating a day for errands and self-care was how she would survive law school. She was enjoying the daily grinds of being a university law student, but finding a balance to work and downtime had proven to be helpful to her since her Hogwarts day. She took it upon herself today to fetch the lacking necessities for the flat she shared with Malia and Coob, seeing as she was a contributing member of that household now.

Roma had just finished buying plant supplies from Noltie's (yes, she was in her stressed plant mum phase) when she noticed her throat starting to feel dry. Summer was over, but one could still get dehydrated if they walked around too much. Holding the paper bag with her recent purchases, the former Slytherin made her way to the butterbeer cart as it was the closest to her and she could really use some of that sugary sweet beverage. And it looked like there weren't many customers either, so that would lessen he waiting time. Roma loved to support small businesses. She didn't immediately see who the other customer was until she was far too close to the cart to run away unseen. It just had to be someone she didn't really have the energy to interact with at the moment.

Or, you know, she could pretend to make a last minute detour. The brunette turned around so quickly and walked away.

Don't look here, Alexander or Benjamin, whichever twin you were. Do not.

If there is one thing that Roma Bracken ought to know after seven years of schooling alongside the Stylinson siblings, it was that they rarely ever did as told. In fact, they took utmost pride in doing exactly the opposite of what they were told. As such, despite her very adamant wishes, Alexander Stylinson looked there.

And hello, hello, hello. What a delightful surprise!

"Oi, Bracken!" He called out with all the gall and the audacity. Yes, yes he did recognize the back of her head (it was one he threw many a balled up parchment at) (oh, those were the days). Very impressive when she seemingly couldn't even recognize him after staring straight-on. Pro Tip: He was the better looking Stylinson brother. "Leaving without even saying hello?" Some people were simply raised without any proper manners.

Shame.

Saint Stylinson would never.

Saint Stylinson would never.
She tried. Roma Leigh Bracken really did try, but of course Alexander-or-Benjamin Stylinson lived to add up some inconvenience to her life on unfortunate occasions.

The former Slytherin paused, whispered a mild curse under her breath, and then turned around again to face the Stylinson twin by the butterbeer cart. "Don't 'oi' me, Stylinson," Roma said as she reluctantly approached the boy. "I just had to check if all the stuff I bought are in the bag. Luckily I don't have to go back inside." That was a lie. Roma never left a store without double-checking if she carried with her everything she paid for. She was responsible as ever.

"Hello. There, I said it," Roma replied to his comment once she finally stood beside him. She also casually looked at Stylinson's hands and arms. She had learned recently from experience that she could tell the difference between the twins by checking for scalds and scars. Benjamin had those from culinary school, but since this twin didn't seem to have any, Roma deduced who it was. "Don't we have a test to study for next week, Alex?" Why was he here?

Some call it inconvenience, others call it ~f l a v o r. Merlin knew she needed some spice in her life. So much for seeing the goblet half-full, Roma. For shame.

Her pause did not escape Alexander's notice. In fact, it made that ever-present smirk even wiiiiider. Oh, how he loved to get under her skin. She made it so very fun. How could one resist? "I see we're still nagging as much as ever, Bracken."

And so reluctant, Roma. Aren't you glad to see him? He was so glad to see you. As for her god-awful excuse, Alexander raised his eyebrows knowingly, holding back a laugh. "Mmm, sure. Whatever you say." Lying didn't suit her, did she know?

Furthermore, her hello was lackluster - such little enthusiasm - so very rude. But he'd allow it. With his drink now ready, he missed her thorough analysis, only turning back in time to smile when she posed her question. "Mm, we do," he replied with a single nod. "I'm surprised, to be honest. I figured you'd be holed up memorizing the textbook all week. Uni life, hm? You're really letting loose." And this, of course, was sarcasm.

Flavour was something Roma considered an acquired taste, and this flavour Alex was referring to? She did not like, no matter how much he tried to twist it all around to make her feel like she made no sense.

If all he had to do in life to make entertain himself was bother her, that was clearly a him problem. Roma had better things in mind than to be a pain in the bum to others. "You would know. You seem to have made it your life's purpose to be nothing but a menace to society." Her nagging was grounded and valid.

Yes, exactly, whatever she says. Let Roma be!

There was little enthusiasm for her to work with, so he best accept her hello because Roma wasn't going to give him a second one. "What do you know about my studying pattern, Alex? Even if you're wrong, you sound obsessed," Roma replied. There was some truth to it, though, and she was the type to bury her head in her textbook in preparation for an exam. Except humans were allowed to breathe, even if that was something Roma had only came to practise post-OWLs. Law school had proven to be even more challenging at best. With that, she signaled the cart attendant for one frozen butterbeer herself. Suppose it was a good thing she didn't have to stalk all the way to the other end of the alley for a refreshment now, despite this disturbance.

If all he had to do in life to make entertain himself was bother her, that was clearly a him problem. Roma had better things in mind than to be a pain in the bum to others. "You would know. You seem to have made it your life's purpose to be nothing but a menace to society." Her nagging was grounded and valid.

He wouldn't hold her weak stomach against her. Alexander Stylinson was very polite like that.

And though he did enjoy bothering her plenty, he never said it was all he had to do in life to entertain himself. Did she really think that little of him? Tsk, tsk, Roma. He hadn't thought her to be so narrow minded. Though, perhaps this is why she hadn't been sorted into Ravenclaw House. Further evidenced by her accusation. 'A menace to society,' was this really the best she could come up with? As if Alexander hadn't heard such a thing before. Ha. But still, he placed a hand over his heart, "Awwgh, Roma!" How nice. "I'm touched. Here I was thinking that you hadn't paid any attention."

But let Roma be? L O L. LOLOLOLOL. Good one.

"So defensive Roma Tomato," he flashed her an infuriating smile as he shook his head. For shame, for shame. "There's a difference between paying attention and being obsessed. Oh, how awful it must be to be understood." Truly, terrible. The horror, the horror. And it was at this point that he took a sip of his tea-- frozen butterbeer.

Heh.
