Default Playground



If it's troubling how close this playground is to the stairs into Knockturn Alley, let the charmed boundaries put your mind at ease. This tiny oasis can be found in a grassy lot that seems as if it has always been there. Did there used to be a shop here, or was it a fountain, or... hmm?

In addition to a self-propelled swing set and monkey bars with real (not real) monkeys, there's a fantastic miniature Hogwarts for climbing and sliding and general silliness. Behind the castle, there's a miniature carousal - unicorns and dragons and kelpies and other magical creatures chase each other in a neverending circle. This is the perfect place for tired parents and caregivers to settle with rambunctious kids who are too young for school. And if they wander too far, the charm will alert their caregiver of their wandering.

From here you can go back to the street and visit some of the shops that are nearby and the bank or keep walking past this corner and see what else the south side street has to offer.

He did have to admit, after completing his first year at Hogwarts the little castle replica wasn't nearly as exciting, but everything else still held its usual splendor.

Zooooooming to the carousel as soon as there was an open pathway to do so, the rising second year hopped up on to a Kelpie and gave a whoop of excitement as it began to spin around. He should have made Gil come with him, he realized, but maybe others would wander about.
If anyone were to ask Emma that question, she would say that when you stopped playing on the playground was when you became old. Her parents were old. Her brothers were technically old, since they were legal adult wizards. She, at age 12 AND A HALF because that half is important YO, was not old. Although she wouldn't complain if the spiritual powers that be were to make her grow a little??

In deciding where she wanted to play first, the small blond doubled back though when a boy she recognized as one of Aryan's dormmates, zoomed past her and nearly knocked her on her bum. "Yo watch it!!"

Drake had certainly not meant to nearly cause injury to anyone, especially not someone that recognized him as having any relation to his closest friend. What if he gave Aryan a bad rep, simply because he'd been so silly as to forget his manners!! Obviously, it was always important to remember to be aware of one's surroundings and not mow someone over. Even if the 'no running' rule he felt like could be generally forgotten in this particular setting, the other parts were still important! His face burning a bit at the holler from the other girl, he quickly readjusted his gait to go back to her instead.

"I'm... um... I'm really sorry. I just got a little TOO excited about the merry go round." He toed the ground with his sandal, before looking at her again. "Are you okay??" She hadn't actually fallen and he didn't recall brushing against her so... hopefully so.

Fortunately being still young she was fairly adaptable. Her years of dance also helped her to be to be exceptionally well-balanced. And while brothers took care of her being the spoiled little sister, she also was adept at handling her own too.

"Apology accepted, but only because you can't really be upset when noone got hurt and the sun is shining." She beamed. "I mean the merry go around IS a classic. Are you a typical horse rider or do you prefer one of the more obscure creatures?" She needed to know if they were competing for the same creature, after all.

At her response, he smiled a little bit before looking uuuuup at the sky to see the golden rays beaming down at them. It was awfully nice to have a spot of sunshine in London. And if she wasn't actually upset, that pleased him! He didn't like to make people upset nor did he like to BE the one who was upsetting them. It was perhaps one of his least favorite past times.

"Well, thank you! I appreciate it!" He smiled back, a bit shyly before looking back over towards the carousel. Was a kelpie what she meant by horse or did she specifically mean the winged horses? "Well... I like horse adjacent type of creatures! I like riding the kelpie the best." He pointed it out in the distant, making slooow steps now that way. "Do you want to come ride it with me?"

It would definitely take much more than nearly knocking her down to upset this ray of sunshine known as Emma Montmorency. While her brothers were generally protective of her as the baby in the family, that didn't mean there wasn't the typical sibling fighting.

"Ahh so you're a water horse type guy!" She glanced at the carousel, studying it a moment, before looking back at his question. "I'm not sure ... can we both ride the same creature ? Or do you just mean both on the carousel but two different creatures." She typically went for the unicorn or the dragon, which she supposed the former was horse-adjacent.

That would have certainly relieved his concerns. In terms of siblings, for Drakey it was just him and Gilly. Which was more than enough, if you asked him, but it also didn't give him much experience with the chaos that seemed to come with multiple siblings. He'd seen it with Aryan and Bryony though, the well meaning teases and bickering. He and Gil he was pretty sure was more protective in most of their interactions, though... usually his sister more so over his own crybaby self.

Drake beamed and gave a nod of his head. "I am! My dad was a sailor so my Mum would say I'm always drawn to things of the water." But he also really loved things of the earth too just like she did. At her question, his smile faltered and he blinked a bit as he looked at the merry go round. "Oh, well I did mean just on it together on different creatures... I don't think we're small enough anymore to ride the same one." It was a magical merry go round, but couldn't it still get uneven from weight distribution?

Despite the unwelcoming english weather, Yasmin found herself strolling through Diagon Alley deep in thought. In the absence of sunlight, she held her tea close to her chest for warmth and without reason, allowed herself to wander. Perhaps when her feet tired, she would find herself in the bookstore or a coffee shop, her journal sitting in her bag, waiting for her. If it had a voice of it's own, it would be calling to her desperately. Maybe this future Yasmin would reach for it and pen her thoughts as she cozied in a corner, drinking something warm and hiding away from the cold. But for now, she was not in the mood. She hardly was these days.

Coming to a stop, Yasmin took a long sip of her tea - Ahmad, Special Blend with a touch of honey and cardamom to taste.

It was a cruel twist of fate that she found herself stopped just in front of the playground. Or had she subconsciously gravitated here, the muted laughter beckoning her from afar? Despite the pang in her chest, she smiled as two young children chased after one another, weaving between swings and disappearing within the castle.

Smiling. Exhaling. Longing. Watching.

The boys reminded her of Dariush. Though he was too cool for games of tag now, she remembered how he used to beg his sister to play, his insistence to pull his cousins along, even on occasion, asking Yasmin, herself, to join. Khaleh Yassi, please! Her sweetest nephew. She missed him so dearly.

It had been some time since they had made the visit to Diagon Alley. While this had once been one of Nai's favorite places, it was hard to not feel nostalgic and the sting of her remaining grief when she passed all of the places she'd gone so often to with her father. The memorial itself as well always happened to draw her attention, and even if she couldn't see it, she could acutely feel that familiar name etched into the stone as if he was still around and calling to her. It made her feel close, but it also made her feel sad because her girls did not have that same connection or memory. Today though, the call would go unanswered as she had decidedly set her goal for the playground.

Her girls deserved an afternoon of fun. And perhaps not a weepy mum. [

Reaching their destination, Cressida and Cassiopeia both took off at a run - her eldest just a fraction faster than her younger sister, though Naia could see the moment she slowed her gait to let the younger catch up. It reminded her of Lucy and Kimberly and the memory brought a smile into her face. But then she noticed how little attention the pair was paying and they were getting far too close to another patron. "Girls! Watch out, please!" She called after them, before moving that direction to check on the other woman. She hadn't been able to see from her distance exactly how close they'd gotten. "Sorry about them. I swear they lose any semblance of manners the moment there is a slide in site." She smiled, looking over at the kids gathered. "Which one is yours?"

Yasmin took a small step back when two children came bounding her way, not for any other reason than wanting to give them the space to play. Still she met them with a smile. Her nieces often raced around in the same way - physical bounds meant nothing. Nothing could tether their sweet laughter from running free.

So, turning, Yasmin offered a comforting smile to the mother of the two girls. "No, please, it is nothing to worry about." Children just being children. The universe was in perfect balance.

But what was asked next of her, it made her feel embarrassed. "Oh, I-" Yassi tried not to feel shame, as a rule, but she couldn't help the strange feeling that crept up her spine as she looked around for a way out. "I don't have kids of my own," her smile faltered for a just a moment. A fraction of a second that held every unfulfilled wish that she kept close to the chest. "But I am so lucky to have many lovely nieces and nephews." Who were not here either.

As she explained, she realized she was only coming off more ... odd, out of place.

While perhaps it was strange to find someone in this particular location without any children running around to watch after, Naia was so relieved by the easy dismissal of her own offsprings near rudeness that she didn’t even fully register that perhaps the woman was a bit odd. Besides, while she had clarified she didn’t have her own kids… she did say nieces and nephews and perhaps they were among the frolicking children her girls were now joining.

She wasn’t one to judge or ask any further follow up questions apparently.

The mention of the role of being an aunt though brought a smile to Nai’s own lips as well as she gave a nod in understanding. “Being an aunt is a wonderful job, isn’t it? You’re allowed to be so much more fun as an aunt.” Naturally, she loved motherhood and her stars. But Zephyr, as the oldest of the next generation of the Amstern brood, held a special place in her own heart - the first they had all fallen in love with. Not that she would ever show or give preferential treatment towards him over his sister or Kimberly’s children, but still.

Yassi did not think to explain that her nieces and nephew were not among the children playing in the background. Or perhaps she had left out this tidbit of information on purpose. One couldn't ever be sure. What she was certain of, however, is that she wanted to make a good impression on this stranger, who if she were to alarm, may find it within herself to call on security. And though she did not have definite plans for her day, she did not want to spend it explaining herself to law enforcement.

"Do you really think so?" she asked, tilting her head with a curious smile. She hadn't ever thought of it that way, that she could have more fun without children of her own to spoil.

"Do you really think so?" she asked, tilting her head with a curious smile. She hadn't ever thought of it that way, that she could have more fun without children of her own to spoil.

At the returned question, Naia glanced to ensure her girls were still happily playing - not wanting them to overhear her and get their feelings hurt in the way kids easily could. She wasn’t saying she didn’t love being their mum - it was all she had wanted in her early adulthood, but that didn’t mean other relational roles weren’t important. “I do! As an aunt, you don’t have the same responsibility of being strict in your rules. If as a mom you let kids have dessert before dinner, they start to think they bargain with you to do it all the time. As an aunt? It’s just a fun treat.”

She’d also used the aunt excuse though to be able to give her kids the same treatment too. Though the excuse usually was ‘we’re doing this because your cousins are here’. Cressida and Cassiopeia had always taken that as a good enough excuse and instead of begging their mother to bend her own rules all the time, they instead begged for their cousins to come over.

Sounded like a win win to Naia! “Did you have any aunts or uncles growing up?”
