Default Shrunken Head Bowling Alley


Situated on the South Side of the Street you can find a rather hip spot: the Shrunken Head Bowling Alley. You heard that right: shrunken heads. There are no muggle bowling balls here. The shrunken heads have opinions and aren't shy to taunt and tell you if you are rubbish. Be aware too that the bowling pins have a tendency to suddenly disappear, move or reappear when you least want them to. Whether you're part of one of the leagues or if you're a social player, come on in: this is the perfect place to kick back with your mates and have a laugh.

The first thing you notice upon entering the bowling alley is the flashing banner right above the counter indicating that this is where the most important person of this establishment is and where you should go first. The counter has the perfect spot, overseeing all the other areas of the bowling alley, so don't try to sneak your way past. A little further down the counter, you can find the Snack Bar, should you feel hungry. It is also overseen by the shopkeeper, which is why the two are directly connected to each other so they can easily offer assistance at both in just a few steps.

Beyond the counter and snack bar awaits the bowling lanes, divided up into three sectors: One to Four, Five to Eight and Nine to Twelve. Even from here you can hear distinct shouts from one of the bowling balls, telling whoever just threw it what a terrible player they are and that they are probably better off going home and knitting a pair of nice woolen socks. Should you not be that much into bowling, make sure to check out the Gaming Corner slightly to the left of the bowling lanes. A small variety of games have been set up, providing you and your friends with an alternative to bowling.

Scottie had arranged the whole thing; the time, place, AND picking Regina up via apparition. He still couldn't believe that in his moment of OHMERLINIMGONNADIE he managed to get a date. Must have been the adrenaline? haaaa????

So, he had done the picking up, had decided against flowers in case it came on too strong, and had very much managed to get her here in one piece. It was a Christmas-in-July miracle, honestly. He held the door open to the bowling alley and smiled shyly as he gestured her inside. "So...here we are. Surprise. I haven't bowled in about ten years, so prepare to see some of the worst bowling in your life," he felt his cheeks go red for no reason at all and hoped they would turn back to normal. For Merlin's sake, Scottie! You got hit by lightning in front of this woman, and you almost DIED in front of her - sucking at bowling ain't gonna do aaaaaanything!

Hmph.

"We should go to that flashing sign first - " he pointed at the colorful banner, "Maybe pick a lane, get some snacks, yeah?"

It had been nice to have this to look forward to after...well, everything.

At first it'd almost felt wrong to be excited about something. Did she have a right to be, after so much pain and loss and grief? After losing her own father?

Regina still didn't really have an answer to that, but finding distractions in the days and weeks that followed helped her to deal with it all. Or not deal with it, in some ways. Either way, time moved forward no matter what happened, battles or no battles. The sun still rose in the morning, the earth still turned each day...and people still went on dates.

So it was that after some help from Naia with getting ready and making sure she looked okay, she found herself smiling easily once Scott showed up and apparated them here. The bowling alley was pretty good idea for a date too, in her opinion. It would be nice to have something fun to do, as opposed to the traditional sitting and having dinner thing.

Not that she would've minded that either. She just liked spending time with him, so anything would've been good really, so...er, yes. Bowling alley. Good. Yes.

"I've seen myself bowl, and that is the worst bowling I've ever seen," she said with a laugh as she walked through the open door. "So I'm sure you'll do great in comparison." Especially since it was shrunken head bowling instead of the Muggle version, which made it even more difficult. But fun! Hopefully.

She nodded when he pointed out the banner and the snacks. "Yeah, sounds good to me." Making her way up to the counter there, she scanned the menu. "What sounds good to you?"

To Scottie's enormous delight, it was hard to feel awkward with someone after almost dying in front of them; this was, at least, the case for him. Maybe not for everyone, but definitely for him.

He chuckled at her comment. "Maybe we should have a 'who is worse' contest instead of trying to bowl well. Though...me trying to do poorly would probably be just as terrible as me trying to well, so," he shrugged as he smiled and led the way to the counter, ordering their shoes (after asking her shoe size) and glancing over at the menu. "Er, Nachos and wings? That sounds like...finger foods. And this is a finger sport, after all," he wiggled his in front of her for good measure. "We'll just grab a lot of napkins," he nodded as he grabbed the shoes placed in front of them and handed hers to Regina. "I'll let YOU pick our lanes while I order? What do you want to drink? Soda? Something stronger? Take your pick," he smiled.

He was glad to see her in a good mood. Work had been so busy lately he barely had time to check in, and he knew she had lost her dad. He was muuuuuch too nervous and awkward to ask about anything like that though.

A who-is-worse contest, hm? She laughed. "That might also end with one of us hitting some poor bystander with the shrunken heads...so we should try to be good, at least a little bit." Actively trying to be worse seemed like it could escalate to something bad really quickly, and they'd probably get kicked out of the shop.

Which, honestly, would be a pretty memorable first date. But not exactly ideal either. She liked not being kicked out of bowling alleys, you know?

And the finger wiggling and suggestion of nachos and wings was met with another chuckle and a nod. "Sounds perfect." Regina accepted the shoes and glanced at the menu briefly again to consider the drinks. "Hm...yeah, soda works. Root beer." She almost went with one of the juices, but they were already getting messy, greasy food, so might as well go with a soda too. It was all about fun, right?

Moving away from the counter, she selected one of the nearby unoccupied lanes. There was also currently no one on the lanes next to them either, so just in case a bowling ball did go flying...they should be okay. She took a seat and quickly slipped out of her shoes and pulled on the ones provided by the shopkeeper.

Well, Regina DID have a point. He didn't want to hit anyone just innocently trying to enjoy their Saturday or anything. "Heck, you're right, Regina," Scottie replied with a small smile. "I work for the MLE - I can't just hit people at a bowling alley," he chuckled. He had just survived a cult taking over the free world - or trying - no need to go to prison over knocking someone out with a shrunken head. Knowing his luck, it could happen with him TRYING to actively not do so. Perhaps it was in the trying and overcompensating that he'd make a mistake...wouldn't be the first time!

Scottie kept a hold of the shoes as he ordered, then he found Regina at the loooovely lane she had picked. "I think they'll bring the food to us. So withouth further ado...let's ROLL AND BOWL!" he said EXCITEDLY as he sat down to pull the shoes on. He was glad his socks were stinky, or he'd be more embarrassed to take his shoes off right now. He had done his VERY BEST to not have stinky feet for the date. Probably given TOO MUCH THOUGHT to it, honestly. "I got us two rounds to start with...if we get bored we can do something else. Play the games or...take a stroll, who knows!" He grinned as he stood up once more to ruffle his hair in an uncomfortable fashion. But like.........he wasn't trying to look uncomfortable, he was uncomfortably awkward trying to look NORMAL. However Regina read into that, well..

He was, again, trying not to overthink, and he was failing enormously.

"Oh! Here's your root beer." He had gotten himself one of the fizzy flavors, and he needed to set them down in order to properly hold the shrunken head, and he was like...fumbling just a little, giving her a sheepish grin as he did so. "Er....well....I never played any sports. Did you?"

She chuckled. "Mhm, probably not the best idea." She would prefer her date not be arrested for smacking other people with a shrunken head. It would be a lot harder to go on more dates if he was in prison.

...Er, y'know, assuming he wanted to go on another date with her after this. Regina certainly hoped so, but it also made her a little nervous - what if she did something dumb, like accidentally hitting him with a shrunken head, and messed everything up??? - so...probably best to just focus on this one right now. Yes.

She finished tying her shoes on when he joined her at the lane to put his on, and she couldn't help but grin at his excitement. "Yeah, that sounds great. It's pretty nice outside." So a stroll would definitely be nice later. Or the games too really, though she hadn't paid too much attention to that section of the shop when they came in.

Oh, the root beer! "Thanks!" She accepted the drink and took a sip, watching him pick up one of the heads. Merlin, those things were...interesting, huh? Wizards couldn't just chill out and use a regular bowling ball. "I was on the Hufflepuff Quidditch team for a term. Only as a reserve, though I dunno how I managed even that since I wasn't very good." There was a reason she'd never tried out for the team for the rest of her Hogwarts years. Er...well, a few reasons, technically, but the main one being her lack of athleticism and sport-related skills.

Nice outside it was, and to be honest, the thought of strolling along Diagon with Regina sounded nice. They could talk, people watch, and discuss unimportant, trivial things. Not serious things. Unrelated to any ALLIANCE activity things. This bowling date was good for that, too, Scottie thought. He grinned at her a little more than he meant to, and found himself sighing contently without really noticing/controlling it.

And the moment passed.

Scottie turned back to their lane, wondering if the shrunken head had the ability to bite???? his hand???? and glanced back at her. "What were you on reserve for? What position?" he asked curiously before stepping up to the lane and cranking back, getting into that BOWLING stance, and then....releasing the head!

Down down doooowwwwwwwwwn the lane it rolled, right into the gutter; not a single pin fell, and Scottie felt his cheeks turn red.

Default I'm a little rusty at this but hi <3
Yay, Hamlet! • Cathopper • Disney Fanatic • I was normal once...

Flynn Kowalski — yes, THE Flynn Kowalski — arrived to the bowling alley a little ahead of his scheduled lunch date with his best friend, Vivian Mayfield Fairfield. He had left his husband behind at their Poland hilltop home, where they have stayed this weekend, with his three daughter: Elara and Neoma, his 4-year-old biological twin daughters, aka "the twins," and Luiza, his 8-year-old adopted daughter. The twins had woken up feeling quite ill this morning, and Luiza had been in a mood since breakfast, which he hoped to Merlin was not early puberty.

He had utilized this opportunity, as unfortunate as it was that his children were sick, to his best interest and scheduled time to see Vivan, as he was never around London anymore since moving to New York years back. He did, however, always call her throughout the week to check on her.

Upon arriving to the bowling alley, he had his 4-year-old biological son, Caelum, on his hip. He was closely followed by his 10-year-old adopted son, Oskar; he was unsure whether his eldest was having a good time in London or not. He maneuvered through the front doors and towards the counter, where he juggled the extra weight on his hip as he tried to get his wallet, which was in his back pocket. Thanks to his girls and their weekly fairytale princess tea parties and dress-up, his finger nails were painted, yet already chipped, with bubblegum pink nail polish. He had tried cleaning them but when they made a fuss about how "pretty in pink" he looked, he chose to keep his nails untouched, but he did find himself picking at the paint every so often.

He finally retrieved his wallet and paid for three rounds of bowling. Then he gave Oskar some money and said, "Treat yourself to whatever you want at the snack bar. I'm going to find an unclaimed alley for us." He felt a tug on his hair from Caelum and when he looked over at him, the boy chimed, "Where VeeVee?" His voice was quiet, as it usually was. His youngest son, who was hearing impaired and wore hearing aids, was not one for talking. He didn't know if the lack of talking was a choice, or if his son chose not to talk due to the fact his voice did not sound like everyone else's.... which a child had pointed out to him at the playground once.

"She'll be here soon," he reassured his son.

She really liked his smile, did he know?

Er, well, she hadn't actually said it out loud, so...probably not? Was that something she should mention? Maybe? Her face warmed, and she quickly took another drink of her root beer just to make sure the words didn't come out of their own accord. It probably would be a nice thing to say but, um, also probably awkward and Regina wanted to be as not awkward as possible right now.

Thankfully the topic of Quidditch was there to distract her. "Chaser," she replied. "I could never get the hang the other positions." She wasn't strong enough to be a Beater, and Keeper and Seeker seemed like way too much pressure to her. At least with Chaser there were two others to help you.

And then he was bowling and...the head went into the gutter. "Yeah, that happens to me all the time," she reassured, smiling. "Bet you'll knock 'em all out on the next roll."

London had so far been underwhelming, and Oskar's hands were shoved deep in the pockets of his jeans as he trailed his Tata and younger brother inside the bowling alley. He was basically only here to avoid the clingy whining of his poorly twin sisters at home and on the promise to visit the candy store afterwards, although he was a little curious about the shrunken heads. What bowling was, or how to do it, he had no idea.

He paid very little attention as Flynn did whatever he needed to do at the counter, distracted by the brightly flashing sign and what was happening beyond, but soon found himself with a handful of unfamiliar coins. He poked at them dubiously, turning them over on his palm. They looked like the money that the triplets used when they were playing shop at home.

"Whatever I want?" he asked, raising a curious eyebrow. He had no idea how much Flynn had given him, but he had heard him correctly, right?

"Whatever I want?" he asked, raising a curious eyebrow. He had no idea how much Flynn had given him, but he had heard him correctly, right?

Remember when Diagon Alley was her go-to place? It felt like it's been forever.

Since graduating from Hogwarts, Vivian was no longer a frequent of the alley. She had decided to study in Madrid, after all, for four years and now that she was a fully fledged curse breaker, there was only little time allotted for herself these days, between work, checking up on her (not so younger) cousins who'd been trapped at Hogwarts during the previous term, and things at home with Andrei. Perhaps it was a side effect of being an adult, but she much preferred staying indoors during her days off. If anything, however, there was nothing, unless extremely essential, in the world that the former Slytherin would forgo to catch up with her closest friends.

The agreed venue was an interesting one to her, as well. Never did she think her best friend, Flynn Kowalski, would decide that a bowling alley was an ideal choice. Things really have changed, and Vivian was certain it had something to do with being a parent. In fact, it was almost easy to spot Coleslaw in the crowd. There he was, with his kids, which was no surprise but definitely a wonderful sight. Those kids have grown on Aunt Vivi, did you know?

"Hello, gents," the blond greeted as she made her way towards them with a warm smile on her face. Vivian wiggled her fingers as a way of saying hello to the younger boys (Oskar and Caelum), and then faced her best friend. Flynn got a light punch on the shoulder and a wink. "Bowling, huh?" She couldn't help but let out a chuckle.

And yes, little Caelum, "VeeVee" is here.

Er, well, she hadn't actually said it out loud, so...probably not? Was that something she should mention? Maybe? Her face warmed, and she quickly took another drink of her root beer just to make sure the words didn't come out of their own accord. It probably would be a nice thing to say but, um, also probably awkward and Regina wanted to be as not awkward as possible right now.

Thankfully the topic of Quidditch was there to distract her. "Chaser," she replied. "I could never get the hang the other positions." She wasn't strong enough to be a Beater, and Keeper and Seeker seemed like way too much pressure to her. At least with Chaser there were two others to help you.

And then he was bowling and...the head went into the gutter. "Yeah, that happens to me all the time," she reassured, smiling. "Bet you'll knock 'em all out on the next roll."
Scottie didn't know she liked his smile, and if he did, he'd probably be embarrassed. In a good way, though. And if she WERE being awkward, Scottie wouldn't have noticed that either because HE was too focused on being awkward himself, and usually when he did this, he ended up being MORE awkward in trying to avoid the inevitable.

Wow. A chaser.

"You have to be pretty coordinated to do any of them, though. Wow." He said as he watched the head roll into the gutter, sighing and shaking his head, but chuckling. "I HIGHLY doubt it, but here we go!" and he grabbed a head again and gave it a ROUGH roll down the way. It veered to the side as it approached the end and, again, knocked zero pins down. He sighed but smiled. "Chaser's turn. I expect SKILL from a former quidditch player." Had she said reserve? No matter. It was more part of a sports team than Scottie had EVER been.

It was interesting how focusing on trying to not be awkward herself also made her not notice any awkwardness from him either. It was like it cancelled itself out? Very interesting.

She felt her cheeks warm a little, and she chuckled softly. "I was also either 13 or 14 at the time too, so I'm sure that helped." Easier to be quick when you were all young and small. Especially when it hadn't been 10 or so years since you'd played.

...Well that thought made her feel old. Ten years since she'd played Quidditch already? Merlin.

Putting that thought away, Regina watched as Scott went for round 2 and...well, it was a little bit of an improvement? It'd rolled quite bit further down, pretty close to the pins, before veering into the gutter. It was still a score of zero either way, but every little bit helped, right?

She wrinkled her nose but was also still smiling when he said it was her turn. "Chaser's" turn. Ha. "Hope I don't disappoint."

After setting her root beer down, Regina got to her feet and grabbed a head. She ignored whatever little quip it made, trying to focus on the lane. And the pins. She did hope to knock something down, but the gutter would be fine too. No shame in that. Just none of that shrunken-head-goes-flying-and-smacks-someone-in-the-face stuff they'd talked about earlier.

She moved her arm back...and then moved forward, releasing the head and watching as it rolled in an almost perfect diagonal line right into the gutter halfway down the lane.

Hmm. Well. Okay. Maybe she could work with this.

Scottie tried to think back on what he had been like at 13 or 14 himself. Awkward and smaller, most probably. Quieter than now. And though he had considered himself quiet before, he felt he had recently come out of his shell slightly. Maybe magical wars did that to a person. For Merlin's sake, he had asked a beautiful woman out on a DATE.

Talk about BUSTING out a shell, there!

"I always say that everyone is usually better than their 14 year old self. Think how lame we all probably were..." he chuckled. "Well actually - I was lame. You were cool. You played quidditch. Those are the cool kids, of which I was definitely not." He mostly had kept to himself and studied his little tail off to get amazing grades to impress his parents and SHAME Logan.

At least her ball had known what it wanted from the start: the gutter. Scottie put his hand over his mouth to hide his chuckle. SHE hadn't chuckled at him, but he couldn't help it. Her reaction to it was so damn cute and funny. "Hey....could have been...worse. Your ball didn't veer off the lane!" He shot her a compleeeeetely playful thumbs up.

Regina had to consider for a moment whether she agreed with that. On the one hand, her 14-year-old self had been pretty happy and enjoying life. Things were easy back then, back before...well, before a lot of things. But on the other hand, ten years was a lot of time to grow, and despite the messiness and difficulty of all the things that had happened in those ten years...Regina supposed she had become better in some ways. Older and wiser and all of that. So maybe he was right about that.

What Scott wasn't right about, though, was considering her cool, when she most definitely wasn't. And that made her laugh. "May I remind you that it was only for one term? I never played after that, so definitely not even close to 'cool.'" Or, by his logic, "cool" for one term and then she'd immediately lost her coolness.

As for her failure with bowling, he was right about that too. It definitely could've been worse. "Right. So let's hope this one doesn't try to outdo that one in that regard," she said, grinning at his thumbs up.

Right, so turn number two. Trying to keep in mind how she'd thrown the last one, she adjusted her position a little before rolling the next head down the lane. It rolled and rolled and rolled...and just baaarely knocked a few pins on the left side over, the rest of the pins jumping out of the way or disappearing.

"Yes!" It wasn't much - wizards really had to go the extra mile and make the pins magical, huh? - but it was something!

Scottie just laughed some more. "When did you graduate again?" because he wondered if he remembered her....he found that he had a hard time remembering a lot of the faces he had gone to Hogwarts with since he kept his nose to the books most days.

BUT WHEN SHE MADE SOME PINS, Scottie actually hopped up an fist bumped the sky. "WOW! Good job, Regina!!" he said with a big ole' grin. "That was so good!" To any normal, average person, Scottie figured they wouldn't be impressed with her skill. But him? A TERRIBLE BOWLER? He was excited for her!!!

He got ready for his next turn, wondering when the food would come. He grabbed a head, got into stance, trying to mimic a professional bowler while he did so. Scottie looked...ridiculous as he did so, too. Total poser; phony. He snorted to himself and gave the head a HARD roll down the lane....watching it spin over and over until it got to the pins. HE TOOK DOWN A CORNER PIN!

"YES! I GOT ONE!" he JUMPED into the air as he turned round to face her.

Regina actually had to think for a couple seconds before she remembered. Even that year felt like it'd been forever ago. "2098. You?" She figured it wasn't too far off from hers, though it was funny to think that they'd been at Hogwarts around the same time and didn't know it. She'd been kind of a mess during the last few years of her schooling though, so maybe it was better that they'd met afterwards.

And she'd been pleased enough with her tiny bit of success knocking down a few pins, but his enthusiastic reaction delighted her. "Thank you, thank you," she said with a slight bow and a wave of her hand. And with a grin she took her seat again so he could have another go.

Another sip of her root beer. The food should be here any minute, right? Regina cast a brief glance around to see if she could spot anyone bringing it their way, but her attention was quickly returned to Scott looking like a real pro.

And he'd done it! A pin went down! The root beer was set back on the table so she could clap, grinning. "Wooooo, nice one! Go Scott!"

Default OOPS> yes. lol. I was staring at your postbit too long clearly!

Scottie turned SCARLET. "....That...is the same year I graduated." He squinted his eyes, as if trying to see her just as he would have as a seventh year. How could he not remember more than half of his classmates? He would have had CLASSES with her, surely...."I really did keep to myself. I don't think I had a single...well, er, friend. I was too shy. I kept to myself and my brother...I hardly spoke..." He was blabbering, now, because he felt silly. And a little sad.....he had made so little impression on those around him? Of course! He hadn't mingled or socialized! "No, no. I feel as if I did already know you, so perhaps, we do remember each other, but only in the depths of our minds." He tried to look SURLY, but shy. "Do you remember me now?"

Maybe their second date needed to be a trip into a penseive *eyes emoji*. If she, er, wanted a second date. So far, he was sold on one, but maybe it was a bit presumptuous of him to think she might be interested. What if she thought he was a complete idiot after this???

His one pin was success, and he was hungry for more, now! He grabbed a head DETERMINEDLY and got in a VERY serious stance, which was probably not correct at all for professional head-bowlers, and gave it a HARD swing!throw down the lane. It rolled straight down the middle, knocking down the rest for a STRAIGHT.

Scottie turned red. HE HAD DONE WELL? FOR REAL? His stunned look would have made a very picture photograph.

...Huh???

Her face equally as red, she blinked. That was...definitely not the answer she'd expected. She thought she'd been embarrassed that he remembered her from that mud run, but now it turned out they'd been in the same year at Hogwarts too? Regina had thought for sure they were in different years. Because...well, he seemed like the sort of person she'd remember, even with her own loner tendencies during that time.

"Well, I...kept to myself a lot too, especially when we got to our exam years." She supposed she did have a few friends then, but during her last few years of school she herself hadn't been a very good friend or even a good sister, sticking to herself and keeping her nose in a book more often than not. Shutting people out.

She did like the idea that maybe they remembered each other deep down though. Brushing a strand of hair out of her face, she watched him, trying to see if she could place him. Trying to recall a classroom setting during that time. Ignoring all the emotions she'd experienced during that time, only focusing on the setting and people... Hmmm. "I... Maybe I do?" The memory was fuzzy, but she could almost picture him sitting at a desk somewhere nearby. But she wasn't sure if it was an actual memory or if she was just trying to force it. "Those years feel kind of like a blur sometimes."

What also was a blur was the head as it rolled quickly down the lane and smacked right into the pins. And all of the pins fell down. Regina grinned, clapping even harder this time and wishing she had a camera to take a photo of him, because the expression on his face was adorable. "That was amazing! Maybe you should be a Chaser on a Quidditch team now."
