Default Memorial Garden



Space has been made - or has it always been there? - for a brand new garden: a memorial dedicated to those who fell in the Third Wizarding War. The garden is surprisingly quiet, given its location in a busy wizarding London street. It's calm here. Peaceful.

Most likely to immediately draw the eye is a statue in the middle of the garden, at the centre of a small pond. A tall, titanium sculpture of a phoenix stands atop a round plinth; almost two hundred names are engraved here, the names of those who fell during the length of the war, listed in columns and slowly revolving, though the plinth itself is stationary. The sculpture seems to bathe the garden around it in a warm glow, and does so year-round. There are some flashes of colour on the titanium phoenix; many of its feathers are detailed in red and gold, and the astute observer will notice that the number of coloured feathers exactly matches the number of names listed below.

Every year, on the anniversary of the 2104 battle, the phoenix can be seen to cry, shedding tears from sunset on 9th May to sunset on 10th May.

A mosaic-like path winds its way through the grass and under arches, made up of bricks and paving stones of different colours. Spaced around the garden, roughly in each of its corners, are four benches. According to the inscriptions on these benches, each has been provided by a different institution or significant area of wizarding Britain: Hogwarts, St Mungo's, the Ministry of Magic, and Diagon Alley itself. Throughout the garden, a variety of brightly coloured and aromatic flowers, shrubs, young trees, and other plants can be found, with plenty of space still left to be filled.

The young woman had actually not seen Blake when he entered the gardens, so observed in her thoughts she was. Sometimes, Claudine did allow herself to mourn for the family she had lost and to feel the great regret that she hadn’t been able to do more for her sister and younger cousins. Then she grew mad at herself for even thinking like that when they each were capable of making their own choices and her family had made theirs.

That voice broke into her thoughts. It was one she hadn’t heard in years and could not immediately place. The face, however? The face was in an instant matched with a name. “Blake?” Yes, Claudine was surprised. “Hi. Long time no see.” There was no hostility in her voice, and she was actually happy to see him.
Blake split into his usual grin. He was surprised at how happy he was to see her. It truly was like coming home for good then. "It sure has been." He added at her comment, and then went whole hog and gave her a hug - well sort of like a side hug? Well anyway ...

"How have you been? What have you been up to after Hogwarts?" He felt like he could rapid fire off about a millions questions. It had after all been nearly 4 years since they had seen each other last. Lots of time to get up to mischief or work.

"Mind if I sit then?" He asked already sitting next to her really for the awkward side hug thing, but he thought he better ask before he just stayed sitting.

Today was a day for surprises. While Blake’s grin wasn’t one of those {since those grins had been encountered numerous times at Hogwarts by her; he was always one of those humans who had a spring in their step}, the fact that he actually hugged her was. Claudine from five years ago would have reacted very negatively to this but she liked to think she had matured in recent years. So, instead of hexing Blake, Claudine simply returned his hug.

Maybe they both had matured and no longer had a problem with each other’s existence.

“No problem. You can stay here. It’s not like I’m going to fight with you.” Claudine laughed, thinking back to their earlier days. The silly shenanigans they got into with each other! It was embarrassing that she could have ever been so mean. “After graduation from Hogwarts, Heath and I moved to Canada to attend University. But we’ll be moving back here afterwards.” Graduation from Wizarding University will be happening soon! “I plan on working at the Scamander Zoo and I’m looking forward to being back full time in a few months.” Claudine hugged herself thinking how happy she was about the prospective future. “Tell me all about what you’ve been up to, Blake! I just can’t believe how long it’s been since I saw you.”

Okay the awkward side hug went well - he should have pushed his lucked for a full hug .. but maybe that wouldn't have gone over as well. He couldn't help smiling at how much both seemed to have changed since graduation. "The Scamander Zoo? That's awesome" he loved the zoo, really that's where he should have gone today instead of the memorial, but then again, he wouldn't be here with Claudine then either. Fate had it's way about it.

"Who's Heath?" Blake blurted it out before he even thought about it, wait did he know Heath? He racked his brain trying to come up with it, he could barely remembered what he did yesterday let alone another person from his Hogwarts years.

"I went to the US for university." He added with a smile, realizing how close yet very far away they were during universyt from the US to Canada. "I studied posinous herbs and fungi, I could probably find 10 ways to kill you in this garden" He added giggling - and then realizing that herbs and fungi were probably not that cool and he really still was a nerd. "Not that I would..." He added awkwardly at the end. "I just moved back - I graduated a semester early and am here for an interview." His cheeks flushed .. would that ever go away either?

A full hug would have gone well but Blake’s hesitation was understandable. The old Claudine did not appreciate such gestures and Blake did not know this new, improved Claudine. “Thanks.” She smiled, really meaning it. “I’m looking forward to it. And to maybe having you stop by at times.” Yes, this was her way of saying that she’d like to see you more, Blake.

The young woman fixed the guy beside her with a pointed glare. “Excuse me? How do you not know who Heath is? He was in our year at Hogwarts. That’s my boyfriend.” She was highly offended on behalf of her Heath though she supposed that Heath himself would not be offended about this entire episode. He was a gentle soul like that. Never mind it. She could be annoyed at Blake enough for the both of them.

It absolutely blew her mind that she had known that Blake had gone abroad to study also. But it was important that she knew now. Herbs and Fungi, huh? “That’s interesting!” Yet again, Claudine fixed Blake with a glare that seemed to be only reserved for him. “I’d like to see you try, Blake Ryan!’’ But in no time she was laughing. “I bet you could. Remind me not to accept anything from you.” She too was joking for the record. “Good luck with the interview! You’re going to do smashingly, I know it. Where is this potential job site?”
