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-you-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.

About ten minutes before their meet-up time, Lio was already at the butterbeer cart. He didn't drink butterbeer often - or at least, that was the goal during the Quidditch season - but he made exceptions for hangouts with friends like Sadie. They could have gone to the Leaky Cauldron for some, but he thought it would be a nice change of pace to grab one from the cart instead of her place of work. And, to be honest, he thought the butterbeer was better here too.

He would wait until she had arrived to buy some though. Hands in his pockets, he stood outside of the botanical shop and admired the plant varieties in the windows.

She did appreciate how punctual he was...though not when he arrived first. It was her competitive side shining through but also practicality would dictate that it was utterly absurd to arrive any earlier - especially when it would mean she would have to skip out a few minutes early from her cell and molecular biology seminar. Anything to get a leg up on her degree.

It was also thoughtful of him not to suggest the Leaky Cauldron and was truly embarrassing how many of her duds for dates had done just that only to be baffled when she reminded them that she was a server there and why she knew the menu without even looking at it. So nice to know that people who were not Arthur nor Delaney paid attention to what she was saying.

Her dreads twisted and intricately braided, she slinked up right beside him and flourished here wrist to give his cheek a firm poke while he gaze all longingly at the window display. "I've interrupted a deep thought, haven't I?" she mused.

Punctuality was ingrained in him at this point, with his rigorous training schedule over the years - but maybe, perhaps, Lio made an extra effort to ensure he was early whenever he met with Sadie. His own competitiveness (if that was a word) was focused within Quidditch most of the time, but that didn't mean it never showed up elsewhere, not when there was a worthy and fun challenger.

He noted her reflection in the mirror just as she poked his cheek, and he grinned as he turned to look at her. "If you consider thoughts about shrivelfigs deep, then yes." Very important and complex plants those shrivelfigs were.

She appreciated that, even if she may not verbalize that aloud ever. It was a nice signal to her that her time was appreciated and Lio was not about that wasteful life.

Smiling a bit as her hand retracted and arm returned to her side, she could not resist rolling her eyes at that cheesy grin of his. "I mean," she mused as she pivoted to consider the window display. "I consider shrivelfigs quite often." Medicinal plants were her forte and the entire reason she was attending university, after all. Turning back to her friend, she opened her arms and snapped her fingers. "Now give me a hug. It's been a minute."

The eye roll got a chuckle out of him. Always felt like an accomplishment when a joke was terrible enough to earn an eyeroll. A minor accomplishment, but still one nonetheless.

He turned away from the window and pulled her into a hug as requested. "It has," Lio agreed. "So you should tell me all about your deep thoughts about shrivelfigs. Fascinating ingredients, they are." Still rolling with the joke, but also a genuine comment in a way, given her field of study. And his own Potions studies too, to be fair, though a little less often. But he was always interested to hear her talk about her studies whenever she wanted to, whether it pertained to shrivelfigs or not.

No, Lio. No. Not something to be proud of so best just wipe that smile from your face and cease chuckling as though you were pleased with yourself. She may just try and resist eyerolling where she to figure out that this was a desired outcome. May being the key word here - if a joke was just too terrible then there really was no controlling those reflexes.

Breathing him in and offering a subtle sigh of relief, she hugged the quidditch player back and...was pretty sure that he was filling out a lot more than she had previously recalled. "Someone has been working out," she observed playfully while giving his shoulder blades a light squeeze. "We need to sort out how we can start working out together again now that our schedules are...mostly settled." Said the girl in pre-healer studies that essentially owned her soul and everything else supplementary material. "I'll just deliver you a copy of one of my pharmaceutical essays sometime. I'm sure you will find it a real page turner."

If one wanted Lio to be less pleased with himself in this moment, commenting on his workout regimen was perhaps not the best way to go about it. His training, both on and off the Quidditch pitch, were of course more than just minor accomplishments to him. And so the grin remained.

"Just a little bit," he teased casually, slowly pulling out of the hug. "When might be good time for you? I have missed our morning runs." Training with his teammates was great and all, but a little outside training with a friend would be helpful too. And fun. "I look forward to reading your enlightening and engaging essay soon." Either he would learn something new...or it would help him fall asleep. A true win-win situation here, all thanks to Sadie.

From one athlete to another, she felt it applicable to reward effort with compliments even if it meant inflating egos a bit. Even if she enjoyed popping holes in these inflated ego balloons and watching them deflate, she could appreciate a sturdy set of broad shoulders as good if not better than the next girl. Problematic as her acknowledgements of these physical attributes were becoming.

Ugh. She blamed all the testosterone in her flat.

"Mornings every day but Mondays and Wednesdays are good for me. Monday is yoga with Autumn and Wednesdays I am trying to drag Olivier out to exercise even if I have to hoist him over my shoulders...or evenings. Those are...always open..." she grumbled, her tone shifting from genuine enthusiasm to the sobering reminder that her last evening plans had ended up in her once again being stood up. As for the conversation revolving around her essay, she simply stuck her tongue out. Very cute, she knew.

The fact that she was an athlete in her own right made the compliment that much more worthwhile. He certainly didn't mind receiving one no matter who they were from - a compliment was a compliment, after all! But it gave it more credence when it was from someone who understood all the effort that went into something like this.

Lio did note and wonder about the tone change. "I'd suggest Thursday morning, unless you'd prefer to have something for the evening?" Maybe she didn't enjoy having free evenings? If not, he could be flexible. A run didn't have to be exclusive to the morning, and they could grab dinner after. Maybe even have breakfast for dinner, so it still felt like morning in a way. Might be fun.

And he responded to her sticking out her tongue by sticking his out too. Very cute mature, they both were.

The tone change was nothing. Nothing. Totally fine. It meant more time to focus on her university work and add additional shifts at the Leaky Cauldron to help pay for necessities and the rent. Fine. University really was the majority of her time commitments, pre-healer studies with an emphasis on magical pharmaceuticals was no walk in the park. What was a walk, or jog and then some, was spending time with Lio. Literally. Everything was fine.

"Either, whatever works with your quidditch schedule." Which surely must be demanding, professional player and the like. "Maybe we can mix it up and do mornings twice a month and evenings twice a month." Mornings were, in a way, easier since she either just had not slept and was still awake come morning or she was up to start the day after having fallen asleep with her face in her textbook or cheek smearing her notes. Praise Circe for non-smearing ink. "It will be nice either way to know I have dependable plans in place."

Meaning she wasn't about to just get stood up.

Autumn's voice whispered in Sadie's ear from the depths of her subconscious, eliciting an almost involuntary reaction from the Ravenclaw as she reached forward to squish his face between her index finger and thumb which meant squishing his cheeks inwards slightly and making his lips pucker. Ish. "Stop that. I'll think you are flirting with me."

The tone change did not, in fact, seem fine, but Lio wasn't sure if it would be wise to mention it. Maybe it'd be weird to focus on. If she wanted to talk about whatever it was, he assumed she would bring it up.

"I like the alternating twice a month idea. Let's try that." It gave his schedule a little more variety, at least to some extent. Considering how rigid his schedule could be at times, that was nice. He enjoyed the Quidditch part of his time, of course, but he much preferred adding his friends to it instead of another essay or potion project. And if they decided they preferred mornings or evenings, they could always adjust as needed.

Even with his quick reflexes, he didn't expect Sadie to reach out and grab his face the way she did. And accuse him of flirting. Sorta. Heh. He didn't pull away though, allowing his lips to remain a bit puckered, an amused twinkle in his eye. "D'you want me to?"

Good. Smart. Yes. Good he did not ask nor focus on it because there was nothing to focus on. Instead she would be focusing on him giving her subliminal compliments for her excellent ideas. She had plenty of those and it was outstanding that someone was finally appreciating them without any backtalk or eyeroll.

Almost. But, to be fair, she had brought it upon herself with the face squishing and what she could not honestly deny as being a flirtatious comment. Her eyes were rolling on reflex alone before she could even begin to process the thought. "You're just going to have to mull that over," she hummed while giving his cheeks another couple of squishes and rounded out the will-she-won't-she gesture with an almost brush of her lips against his, but instead was a very close air kiss. "Never will a woman reveal all her secrets. She is the only one who will ever know them all," she added with a coy wink and then finally released him from her playful grip and took a small hop back.

She didn't even know what exactly she was doing here so...good luck figuring that puzzle out, Lio. When you did, maybe you could fill Sadie in as well. Much appreciated.

It seemed they had come to an agreement on their run schedules, so that was good. Especially since the conversation had taken a turn Lio wouldn't have expected prior to this very moment.

Not that he minded. He was incredibly amused by her response.

And a bit confused too, to be honest. Because it didn't exactly answer his question. It wasn't really a "yes" or a "no," but somehow something...in the middle? Or neither? Then again, if she didn't want him to flirt with her, he was sure she would've given him a straightforward no and wouldn't have almost kissed him. For a split second, he had thought she was going to. But it was only almost, so...it still didn't feel like an admission of yes either???

Yeah, definitely confused. Amused and confused.

The smile returned again once she'd released his face. "I suppose that's fair," he said, leaning towards her just a little bit and lowering his voice. Not to a whisper, but just a bit quieter than a normal outside voice, so only she could hear. "A little mystery is fun too." And he added a wink of his own.

It was a beautiful day for a Barrington Family adventure in the Alley. Theia's dad had wanted to have a chance to look around the music shop but seemed like he will have to wait another time as most of the visit so far was Amatheia shopping and Calliope shopping. Cant buy stuff for one and not the other.

The blonde Theia was rocking back and forth on her feet. This was normally her behavior when getting a new plushie for her horde in her room. But on this occasion it was shopping for school. She was finally going to be joining Maggie at Hogwarts.

It only took forever.

They had stopped for something to drink and it was mostly Theia's fault for wanting butterbeer. Bugging both her mum and her Dad and eventually one had been worn down from all the whining.

"Can we get my books soon please please please. We can go whenever Calliope wants after that!"

Theia bargained. Look at her trying to negotiate. Growing up so fast. She still needed her wand and had forgotten about that important item. To the blonde eleven year old the most important item right now was the butterbeer

It was strategy, Lio, and strategy constructed from inexperience was messy and nonsensical. She would not be admitting to the latter of that, however, and would much rather find herself coy than confusing or convoluted. One thing Sadie was good for was sharing her opinion when she had one and not being subtle about it...SO.

She had always figured Lio to be the more timid and reserved sort, so perhaps her real aim here had been to ruffle his feathers, so his maneuver of parroting her own physical actions took her aback slightly and the tactic of lowering his voice so she had to lean in to hear him made her want to do the complete opposite. She compromised, with herself, and stayed in place much to her own amusement. "Came to the right place then," she mused and swung her head towards the cart. "...so are you going to buy me a butterbeer or was I just invited here to enjoy the scenery?"

How was it that her first baby was this grown up already and heading off to school? Gaia could hardly fathom it but did feel a certain sense of calm knowing that her daughter would be in good hands with one of her dear friends among the faculty. She just hoped that Dhruv was ready to endure the little army of stuffed animals Amatheia came with. And she knew her darling husband wanted to turn around and head back to the music shop, something Calliope would like as well since watching her sister shop for a school she could not go to yet was frustrating and even though they could afford it ... it would be a little silly to buy two of everything now when Calliope still had time before she would be off to boarding school.

Location pending. Potentially.

So, Nigel got a little kiss and Calliope one to her forehead before Gaia slipped her arm around her eldest daughter's to have a mommy-daughter kind of afternoon while the other two went off to test out every musical instrument together. Plus...she needed to give Amatheia a private orientation on the keychain she had made that was going to help her daughter and all the trunks she would needed to bring to school for all her stuff. "We can do things in whatever order you fancy," she cooed while giving her daughter's cheeks an affectionate squish between her palms. "Including picking up that extra trunk papŗ thinks is a little unnecessary."

He, truly, was one to talk. An entire trunk of hair supplies whenever they went on vacation - which was something else she was looking forward to in the immediate future. Another honeymoon with the husband. Honeymoons being an exclusive newlywed thing was such a social construct.

Her Father was very much in agreement that they didn't need two of everything needed for Hogwarts. Since Calliope still had quite a way to go until she is eleven. He didn't want to be that old yet! Think of his hair, please and not of boarding schools. That was too much to think about sending calliope off as well. Ok ok off to the music shop with Calliope for him and later the adults can discuss another honeymoon which he was hoping was in Hawaii.

ANOTHER TRUNK JUST FOR PLUSHIES WAS UNNECESSARY. BUT ONE FOR HAIR CARE PRODUCTS WAS COMPLETLY SANE THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Theia was just trying to give her best puppy-dog eyes while this was all happening and wondering what was going on and using her moderate brain power realized it was just going to be her and Mum. She waved good bye to Dad and Calliope as the made their way off and now had to wonder what order did she even want to start in.

GOSH THAT SQUISH WAS SO EMBARRASSING, MUM PEOPLE ARE HERE

Theia's cheeks went read before she mustered up some answers. "We can start with the trunk! Can it be like a super nice comfy one? I don't want any of them to be uncomfortable in it or like tear."

The important questions being asked.

The important questions being asked.

Nigel, amore, it was about time you accepted that your eldest daughter's version of hair care products was stuffed animals. Your wife understood that that may be a bit disappointing and confusing, but this was why she was taking care of the matter and letting you continue to inspire the future generation of TDK in Calliope. Though Calliope may pain you as well given she had a certain affinity towards beanies and knitted caps in general.

And speaking of doing things not embarrassing but rather acts of pure kindness...

Theia was likewise gifted a kiss on each cheek after squishing. She simply could not fathom being embarrassed by your own mother - she hadn't been at her daughter's age and had always adored having girls days out! "Trunk it is," she smile and reached into the pocket of her open knit cardigan first for some much needed reapplication of her current favorite Ellsberry, Inc. lip gloss and not just because she had been one of the faces for the campaign. As soon as she had freshened up her lips, she was reaching back into her pocket for the charm bracelet she had specially made for her daughter and upon which several trunk shape charms currently hung. "So...one for your school supplies...another for clothes and accessories...and two for stuffed animals, one of which we need to get today," she reviewed while tapping each charm with her index finger. "Does that cover them all?"

Poor Dad he was just taking L's. First, it was stuffed animals, and now his other daughter with beanies and caps. Think of the hat hair! He did have one thing going for him. He was not embarrassed as much as Theia was right now. The blonde's curiosity was getting the best of her as she looked at the bracelet mum brought out. Was that her's or was it mum's. She forgot.

HOLD IT MUM YOU ARE GOING TOO FAST

one for books and stuff yeah that was right and yeah yeah she had a lot of clothes so she needed one and her eyes lit up at two for her animals.

"Does books count for the school supplies or do i need something different for them? Also Also can i have some of that gloss you just used! please!!"

You cant just use it and not have her asking for her own.

Poor Dad was always getting W's (and O's) in her grade book. So, really, not so poor at all!

"Books count for school supplies," Gaia nodded with a tap against the trunk charm allotted for school supplies. "And Hogwarts has an impressive library for additional leisurely reads and research should you find yourself with free time and a desire to fill it." So she had heard at least. Gaia had not been a Hogwarts student herself so she could not speak to any personal observation but how could a school do a library wrong? She may be a little jealous of her daughter simply because she got to step through all these open doors towards learning, once that she had stepped through a long time ago and taken from them what she could. Oh to go back and relive discovering the world through the eyes of innocence. Well, there still was plenty to explore still but it was a little different. Plus, she had not experienced it through the Hogwarts lens and had had to rely on such testimony and experiences from her husband and bandmates. "And don't you worry, I am packing you an entire kit of Ellsberry essentials." She was even working with a design team to make the perfect tot bag and future launch date. Theia would, obviously, be getting it well before it became available to the public. "That, however, will be a surprise for you to enjoy once you get to your dorm room. You can have a pampering night with your dormmates. It will be amazing and so much fun."

Poor Dad was just a victim of success

The more Theia thought about it the more she realized she didn't have that many books anyway for their own trunk. She had some coloring books and a few that she liked to read but that was about it. It was nothing compared to the library her cousin Phoebe had. She would have to get Maggie to show her around the school when she is finally there. Maybe that included the library if it didn't bore her friend but who knows.

"So that would make four trunks"

Which seemed like a fair number all things considered and not heavy which was Amatheia's primary worry but if on a bracelet it would look pretty and light. She had no idea what a entire kit of essentials meant but if it could help her be pretty like her mum than she would be happy with it. Right....dormmates. The one big worry the blonde had. What if they were mean or weird and Amatheia couldnt be friends with them. Would make things awkward real fast.

"Umm...what if my new dormmates are weird or mean?"

Such a tragedy, truly. Let Gaia kiss the boo boos away later.

It was so lovely to think about how similar and yet how different she was from her daughters. The necessity for multiple trunks was obviously something in the genes, but the utilization of them was so unique to each of them. Where Gaia had had a trunk just of books, Theia had stuffed animals. Gaia had also had struggled with packing clothing and had been an amazing thrifter, still was really, so there had been a fair bit of overflow since the convenience of extension charms had been prohibited. That was where the idea of shrinking trunks to fit charm bracelets had been birthed. She did enjoy exploiting a good loophole!

"Four trunks and we just need to get the one more," she nodded and suddenly had a hankering for raspberry and lime gelato. If her daughter was embarrassed by her mother being overly affectionate in public, showing her vulnerabilities was not the way to make such affections stop. With eyes and a little pout to her lips that saw 'aaaaaaw', Gaia scooped the little blonde up with one arm and pulled her daughter tenderly against her side. "First...we don't use the word weird to describe others. It is entirely too subjective a term and can be derogatory," she corrected with a little wiggle of the fingers. "Everyone is unique and even if those uniquenesses seemingly put two people at completely opposite sides of the social spectrum, there is always a common ground to be found. I'm sure your future dormmates are just as nervous as you are and wondering the same things about you...and we all know that you are amazing and gifted and compassionate. Open mind, open heart, open doors!"

And a loving kiss to the top of the head for you, Amatheia Liliana Barrington. MWAH!

She had always figured Lio to be the more timid and reserved sort, so perhaps her real aim here had been to ruffle his feathers, so his maneuver of parroting her own physical actions took her aback slightly and the tactic of lowering his voice so she had to lean in to hear him made her want to do the complete opposite. She compromised, with herself, and stayed in place much to her own amusement. "Came to the right place then," she mused and swung her head towards the cart. "...so are you going to buy me a butterbeer or was I just invited here to enjoy the scenery?"
Lio certainly would have disagreed with being thought timid, but he could imagine how someone would view him as reserved. He didn't have a particularly loud personality; he considered himself more of a go-with-the-flow type of person. Take things as they come, and have a little fun along the way. That was his general motto, at least for the most part.

And this whole exchange was definitely fun so far.

"Why not both?" he replied.

He did turn to the cart as well though, and ordered two butterbeers from the man. Lio gave him the appropriate amount of coins, and in short time he received the drinks, one of which he held out for Sadie to take. "Shall we walk around and admire the scenery?" Or they could just grab a nearby bench and sit for awhile. He didn't mind either way.

Slytherin by heart

Slade had brought his twin sons to the butterbeer cart to begin with, knowing it would make the entire shopping trip a little easier. Armand and Damien Beta-Erikson were freshly-minted 11-year-olds who needed their school supplies, and were overeager about it. The entire family was also newly returned from the Maquis, the little encampment his father had found in his journeys before his working days, and they were just starting to settle in.

"I need two butterbeers!" Armand proclaimed loudly to the cart owner.

"One," Slade said. "You get one." Heaven help him, the boys would be the death of him.

"And I need a butterbeer too!" Damien followed up.

It was so lovely to think about how similar and yet how different she was from her daughters. The necessity for multiple trunks was obviously something in the genes, but the utilization of them was so unique to each of them. Where Gaia had had a trunk just of books, Theia had stuffed animals. Gaia had also had struggled with packing clothing and had been an amazing thrifter, still was really, so there had been a fair bit of overflow since the convenience of extension charms had been prohibited. That was where the idea of shrinking trunks to fit charm bracelets had been birthed. She did enjoy exploiting a good loophole!

"Four trunks and we just need to get the one more," she nodded and suddenly had a hankering for raspberry and lime gelato. If her daughter was embarrassed by her mother being overly affectionate in public, showing her vulnerabilities was not the way to make such affections stop. With eyes and a little pout to her lips that saw 'aaaaaaw', Gaia scooped the little blonde up with one arm and pulled her daughter tenderly against her side. "First...we don't use the word weird to describe others. It is entirely too subjective a term and can be derogatory," she corrected with a little wiggle of the fingers. "Everyone is unique and even if those uniquenesses seemingly put two people at completely opposite sides of the social spectrum, there is always a common ground to be found. I'm sure your future dormmates are just as nervous as you are and wondering the same things about you...and we all know that you are amazing and gifted and compassionate. Open mind, open heart, open doors!"

And a loving kiss to the top of the head for you, Amatheia Liliana Barrington. MWAH!
Theia did have to admit she liked nice clothes just not as much as nice soft cute plushies. Sadly she was not a big fan of thrifting when the other option was buying in nice and new and not used. Like new was important in this case. Now in the case of the braclet it was cute even if the trunks were not on it so win win for her. The only thing that would make it better if she could get some cute animals on it.

Gelato did sound good right about now.

WHEN WILL THE EMBARASSMENT END. Now she was getting scooped up. Did mum want her face to stay permanently end for the rest of this trip. It seemed like it. Now she was getting a lecture over calling people weird. THIS IS TORTURE. If only she was not as dramatic as her father. She understood what her mum was getting at but still like if they smelled it made it a lot harder to be all of those things.

"But like what if they smell bad?"

How can she be kind and compassionate if they smelled bad? Not even magic could fix that completely right????
