Default Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes


The doors of Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes first opened in the summer of 1996, sparking the reality of what had been a dream for the Weasley twins. In the years since then, the laughter has continued and the bell above the door rings consistently in the busy times. The bright store has traded hands between a handful of shopkeepers, but the legacy of the Weasley twins continues through the light and laughter in the air at any moment of the day.

Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes sells a range of items, separated into different areas of the store over two floors. You’ll find a myriad of unorganised displays in the aisles enticing shoppers to buy both tricks and treats such as punching telescopes, canary creams and anti-gravity hats. In recent decades, the store has expanded their range of stock and now sells the very objects from your child’s wildest dreams.. toys and forever floating balloons! It’s not easy to miss, but on the right of the second floor is a violently pink area full of WonderWitch products. The display here is full of bright pink flowers and confetti surrounding the stock of love potions and other items. Just a few footsteps away is the Pygmy Puff area where you can select a new friend in all shades of pink and purple with a matching cage!

As you reach the back of the store, you’ll find the queue for the counter where the shopkeeper will get you served as quick as they can. If you were looking for the Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes brand of fireworks, then here’s where to come as they are stored behind the counter on the highest of shelves. Safety first, folks.

Eden walked into Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes with her muggle brother at her side. No mandatory school shopping today. Just a casual little Diagon Alley trip to test the waters. Eden had spent a lot of time convincing her brother she'd be safe to return to Hogwarts, but so far neither of them really believed it.

Eden didn't care. After last year, she knew she could handle anything. Elijah, on the other hand, was feeling very Concerned Custodian. Even after she'd taken him to get ice cream. Apparently ice cream didn't make up for not hearing from her for an entire term.

"Be right back,"
Eden lied, zooming off into the shelves to find whatever 2 galleons, 10 sickles could buy. So nooooo fireworks. Sigh. Anyway. What was all that pink stuff? The short redhead speed-walked up the stairs.

Lisa had found her ONE true love in form of a shop. Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes was brilliant. Absolutely brilliant and maniacal just like she. Heck. She was fairly certain that if she ever had to be asked about which Diagon Alley she felt summed up her personality (which was totally a GREAT icebreaker question for the record- she’d have to remember that), this shop would be the one.

And her she was with arms filled with two Pygmy puffs and fireworks, she was quite content as she walked the aisles of the shop. Now she had heard or a saw an infographic about enchanted airplanes . Now WHERE were they located? She was about to head down the stairs when she saw fiery red hair speed past her. “Um, do you know where I’d find the airplanes? The enchanted ones?

Eden almost didn't stop in time to avoid colliding with the tiny girl at the top of the stairs. In fact, she almost didn't register the girl at all - with how full her arms were she practically blended in with the displays.

She didn't recognize the girl, which meant she was probably a first year or just a plain old kid. Enchanted airplanes? "No." Eden almost walked away, but she noticed that her brother stopped following her once he saw her with another little girl. Not that Eden was a little girl. She was almost thirteen. If anyone other than Elijah tried to act like she was some little kid she'd be correcting them with the QUICKNESS. "But I'll help you look," she spoke decisively, eying the CUTE pygmy puffs in the girl's arms. "I'm Eden."

Lisa looked like a deer staring into headlights. She just froze as Eden had rushed towards her and she had pretty much accepted that she was going to be crashed into. However, when that didn’t happen, she was pleasantly surprised. As the other girl opened her mouth and the MOST dreaded words formed, Lisa’s face immediately turned sour- like one of those Sour Patch kid commercials that you’d see. Sweet until they turn sour.

But the sourness didn’t stay too long and it was replaced by a sweet smile. “Thanks. I’m Lisa. Nice to meet you, Eden.” She noticed the girl’s gaze drop to the Pygmy puffs in her hands. “Oh this is Zuzu and Tara. They’re going to be best friends.” Or she’d force them to be! Zuko and Katara were MEANT to be! She had to name them after some characters from her favourite TV show (she was halfway through the second season) but she was determined that Zuko and Katara would be a thing. It would have been SO romantic. And when she had tried to ask her sibling’s questions about what happened next... they refused to tell her. She’d have to keep watching. She glanced down at her arms and then remembered that she was also holding fireworks. “Aaand the fireworks are for an... experiment....” Lisa couldn’t admit to being a pranked just so openly.

Do you go to Hogwarts?

Little kids sure did have a lot of energy, didn't they? Eden remembered when she was that age. Young and full of optimism. One year ago.

"Nice to meet you too, Lisa," a pleasantry, nothing more - who knew if it was nice to meet somebody right when you met them? She supposed it was nice to meet some people right away, like people with fun earrings or the old ladies selling snacks at the field they played soccer on. But anyway. Eden waved at the pygmy puffs, too.

An experiment, hm? Eden wasn't born under a rock. She didn't care if Lisa had fireworks, either - there were WAY more dangerous things at Hogwarts. "Ooooookay. Have fun with your experiment. "

Eden stood up straighter and prouder with the next question. She wasn't exactly sure how to answer it. "Yes, I do. The evil headmaster is dead so hopefully I'll actually be able to have fun this term. Unless they've got more evil headteachers in stock. Only time will tell on that one, I suppose."

Sigh.

Lisa wasn’t exactly sure what to make of Eden so she just stayed quiet. It was very much unlike the usual boisterous self but she just didn’t know how to act or what to say in front of the older girl. She did like the wave to the Pygmy puffs so she did wear a small smile on her lips. “Thanks.

She awkwardly hoped from foot to foot until the news of someone dying shocked her in her steps. Someone DIED? At HOGWARTS? Why had none of her siblings told her that? Her eyes widened in shock but also curiosity at why said Headmaster had died. “Evil headmaster?” she repeated, not sure how to respond exactly. “I....is hogwarts not fun? Can you not pull pranks... cause mischief?

And Lisa was completely unaware of everything that happened last year. No one had told her so she was left in the dark.

"... so I ended up filling up a whole roll of film in one day and dad said he'd show me how to develop them with that one potion so I could do it on my own when I get to Hogwarts. But then he didn't, because that was just before he got like eight thousand new clients and really busy always, and anyway I'm not sure he knows how do it without checking a book. And I can check a book for myself." Breezing into Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes with Atlas in tow, Lucky paused to take in the sight of the products on display, eyes bright but mind still sort of on his camera. He would have liked to bring it to Diagon Alley, so he could have a batch of photos from a muggle street and a batch from a wizarding street, and then compare the two, but it had sort of been his last roll of film and there hadn't been an opportunity to get more yet.

And then he'd gotten all sidetracked by trying to have a magic-off with Ruari - it was still allowed because he wasn't at school yet and if that wasn't a real loophole then it SHOULD be - which had turned into several catastrophes and a misadventure, and then he'd played chess with Great-Grandma Tempus and then he'd gone to see his grandparents and half-finished a drawing of Grandpa Piers and then he'd gone home and had dinner and gone to bed and suddenly thought about war things and Hogwarts things and burst into tears so loud that his dad had had to come sit with him until he calmed down and fell asleep but he'd been sworn to secrecy about ever telling anyone EVER because that was the most uncoolest thing. And, long story short, Lucky had totally forgotten all about the photos and camera until today. Mostly because that had all been the day before yesterday. But he could bring it another day maybe.

He side-eyed Atlas briefly. Speaking of cool, Lucky was pleased to note that, though Atlas had five months and a school year on him in terms of age and experience, he - Lucky, himself, he - still had more cool points accumulated. Important things. "What are you getting? I want at least ten pairs of Extendable Ears." At LEAST. "I need to stock up for Hogwarts."

Important things. "What are you getting? I want at least ten pairs of Extendable Ears." At LEAST. "I need to stock up for Hogwarts."
It was cruel just how much he had been looking forward to FINALLY being in school together again with Lucky...only to have their Diagon Alley day feel tainted because of the LAST time Atlas had been here. Dad had been really weird about things the day after as well, more so than usual at least, and the second year couldn't even blame polyjuice or Imperio on it.

...that was a statement he never thought he would say...

But Atlas had also run the numbers and the probability that Quinn and the banshee would be here today was incredibly slim. Slim to none, really, so Atlas was doing his best to not let any of those memories weigh him down. Though they hung heavier than some of the things he had survived the past term. Heavier on the heart at least.

"I know someone who knows how to do that stuff at Hogwarts. Couple of someones," he nodded. "I can introduce you to one of them on the Hogwarts Express maybe. Assuming we can find them. But...since the train is kind of just a straight shot up and down...ought to be easy." Atlas could not relate much to cameras and photography. It was robotics that claimed his steady hand and any time he had attempted to dabble in photography it had looked like a flutterby bush had taken the picture.

"Why Extendable Ears?" he asked while shooting his friend a side glance right back. Did Lucky actually care enough to eavesdrop on other people? Atlas supposed that there was something to be said about information being power...so in some ways the Gryffindor could understand the appeal. If he were doing things...he would get himself a charmed notebook to write down and keep track of things, otherwise the information would just muddy up his own thoughts and create disorganization. Maybe one like dad had...that required a small pinprick blood sacrifice to open. That was one of the neater magical artifacts in dad's office. "Fireworks for sure...and then maybe some fake trick wands and fever fudges if I have anything left over."

It had been quite some time since Aggie had taken time off. Owl training required commitment, perseverance, patience, and long hours. But her last batch of owlets had finally grown, acquired all the skills needed for delivering post and responding to basic commands and were now on their way to the pet store and owl post and other places that had required them. And so, here Aggie was, wandering around Diagon Alley spending her day off looking in windows and attempting to be social.

Perched on her ponytail was the tiny elf owl, Hoo-Dini who hooted softly as Aggie moved. She paused to look into the window of the joke shop. The last time she had been her she had been in her last year of Hogwarts. Surely things had changed over the years. "Well, Dini," she asked the owl as if he was capable of having a conversation with her. "Shall we go in?" The owl gave a loud hoot and fluffed his wings. A moment later they were opening the door to the joke shop. At first look, it certainly seemed the same.

A Poop * k8 *

Randy hadn't been owner of the shop long now, but he was slowly growing used to the goings-on not only in the shop itself, but the entire alley. What an utterly and truly magical place it was. There was always something exciting happening, and somethings they were good excitements...sometimes not. It made for an adventurous life that he so craved. With his young daughters back at pre-Hogwarts schooling for the year, he was glad to have a distraction from missing their antics.

The shop had enough antics for a lifetime.

He sometimes felt that WWW was a living, breathing entity, and maybe the original owners for which the shop was named had wanted it that way.

And Randy adored every inch of the shop, and had since he was a young lad. He was currently fixing a shelf where the punching telescopes had apparently set off on their own and were BUSY causing mayhem in that aisle. He heard the bell tinkle, though, and he peeked his head out of the row so that the customer could see him.

"Why, hello there! Welcome to Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes! Anything I can do for you today, ma'am?" he asked with the BIGGEST smile he could handle. He waved with his hand that had a punching telescope in it, which was not a good idea because suddenly -

THE TELESCOPE PUNCHED HIM. IN HIS CHEEK.

With his young daughters back at pre-Hogwarts schooling for the year, he was glad to have a distraction from missing their antics.

The shop had enough antics for a lifetime.

He sometimes felt that WWW was a living, breathing entity, and maybe the original owners for which the shop was named had wanted it that way.

And Randy adored every inch of the shop, and had since he was a young lad. He was currently fixing a shelf where the punching telescopes had apparently set off on their own and were BUSY causing mayhem in that aisle. He heard the bell tinkle, though, and he peeked his head out of the row so that the customer could see him.

"Why, hello there! Welcome to Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes! Anything I can do for you today, ma'am?" he asked with the BIGGEST smile he could handle. He waved with his hand that had a punching telescope in it, which was not a good idea because suddenly -

She didn’t really know where to start. The place was lively and active and full of noises. It was extra hard since she didn’t really have a goal in mind when she entered the store. Hoo-dini, fluffed his feathers at the noise and then snuggled into her hair a little more as if trying to hide. She shh’ed him. After all, owls might not be allowed in the store.

A booming ‘hello’ came from somewhere and she looked around before she found a head sticking out from a row. ”Hello,” she said with a small wave of her fingers. ”No not really I’m just – oh!” She covered her mouth with her hands as the man was punched in the face. A loud giggle threatened to escape and her face turned a little red. ”Are you,” giggle… giggle…. ”Alright?” she asked before breaking out into laughter.

It took her a little bit to gain control of herself. Merlin, she hoped the shopkeeper had a good sense of humor. He had to, right? To work in a joke shop. ”I’m sorry… oh I’m sorry… no seriously are you alright?” She took a step towards him. ”I can go get you some ice or something…” Or she could send Hoo-dini.

Listen.

Listen, listen.

Randy had a wonderful sense of humor if he DID say so himself. And he found many things funny. One of those things was people getting hurt - not seriously so, but slapstick was great - and the other was people LAUGHING.

and laughing at him????

He was laughing with HER laughing at HIM.

So not only was the shop noisy, but now there was a lot of laughter. "OOOHH WEEEE I am FINE. Promise. Third time I've been punched by one of those boogers," he waggled his finger at it as if it were a living thing threatening to punch him again. "Damn telescopes. But thank you for the offer, how KIND. Welcome to Wheezes, again, and what a welcome it is! I hope you find your day going swimmingly and can only make it better by buying something worth your time, whether it be in here or elsewhere in the Alley!"

Cheerfulness, pep, PEP AGAIN. STAY PEPPY. Even with a black eye, which he as searching for some essence in his charmed pockets as he got closer to the customer in the store.

"Well it seems my day is going better then yours," Aggie said without thinking. She was still giggling, but the giggles were starting to filter out. "Are you sure you don't need help? Want some ice? I can send Hoo-dini -" At his name, the owl popped his head up over the top of hers, blinked his eyes twice, and then ducked back down.

He sure was perky. Usually Aggie didn't care for perky, but it seemed a little hard to ignore or dislike in a store like this. There was an energy that was catching. Or maybe it had just been the laugh fest that had put her in a more jovial mood then she usually was. "I ah... um.... well to be honest, I just came in to come in. Look around a bit. Haven't been here in - a long time." He didn't need to know how long that was exactly. Nope...a lady never revealed such information and a gentleman didn't ask. He best not ask her either.

Well, to be frank, Randy had had a pretty decent day. A little punch from a toy was not enough to dim or damper his cheerfulness. Especially since the shock of getting punched by the telescopes had worn off.

"I'm okay. I'll just find my essence and, er, apply it. But it's a shame you're just here to LOOK when the entire store is at your horizons!" he beamed. Was he a pushy shopkeeper? Maybe...maybe not. Depended on his mood. He was mostly teasing this woman, though.

"By the way, I am the NEW shiny owner of Wheezes. Randy Stavros, ma'am," he held out his hand for her to shake. "I'm so excited to be here in the Alley. Really. It's any shopowners DREAM to have a stake in any shop here in Diagon....so this is really...oh, quite the DREAM come true. And seriously, if you just want to look around," he added a wink here for good measure, "I have no qualms with it. Enjoy your stay in Wheezes. I can also show you anything you might be interested in - it's quite a big store. And I've got it re-organized juuuuuust a tad," he indicated the tad with his fingers, too. For emphasis.

Coming straight here from her kickboxing tournament had been a mistake. Hot and bothered by her fourth place finish, not only behind her sister but her rival as well, Sadie was looking for any excuse not to go home or even be around her family. She didn't even want to see Di Di right now and that was a sure indication that she was in a sour mood. She had never particularly cared for joke items either, though she supposed picking up something to torture prank Art with might possibly lift her spirits. Assuming that Gryffindor could make time for her later in the afternoon. His mum adored her, as was made obvious by his mum taking to heart all of the persuasive essays she had written about the necessity of Art to return to Hogwarts after the war and changing her mind to allow her best friend back, so there was also the possibility that she could just pop on over and it would be fine.

Still in her uniform, Ravenclaw perused the shelves waiting for something to jump out at her...though perhaps not literally. She was not in the mood to pay for the damages her reflexes may cause.

Ugh. Clearly she did not actually want to unwind or she would have found herself in Noltie's Botanical Novelties. It was a term of practically living in the greenhouses ahead for her as well with it being OWL year. Hopefully Professor Flamsteed was prepared for even more inquiries about her side projects and research. When she was stressed out about studying...she procrastinated by focusing on her niches. It was a habit she should probably break, but she failed to see the point in that. When she attended university she would only be focusing on one branch of study anyway.

Tavion Lorne Sawyer was not one who got angry. In his 15 years of life, he didn't actually remember a time where he ever had been truly angry, and that was quite the feat considering he had a billion siblings - both birth and adopted. But his sister's dang PET had managed to ruin an entire BOOK of his Pokemon cards. His favorite Pokemon cards at that! Which meant now he had to do a full replacement which was going to be pricey and Eliza still was not properly training the creature.

Which to him, meant war. They were in war.

And the only place he could think of to stock up on his ammunition, was the joke shop. He didn't want to hurt his sister, obviously, but he did want to annoy and cause as much agony and inconvenience as her pet did to literally everyone.

The only problem here lay in the fact that he.. had no idea where to start, having never purchased anything like this previously. The rising fifth year scanned the shelves and gave a small sigh before turning to see a girl roughly his age looking around as well. He didn't have much to lose, so he figured he'd risking asking if anyone else could help him out with his quest. And if not... well maybe he could hunt down the shopkeeper as well. "Excuse me? Do you have any favorite products here?"

Help.

The more she scanned the shelves, the less sure she felt about he decision to find something here to invoke a bit of drama and fun. Some of the prank items seemed a little inhumane and not entirely harmless. For the moment, however, she was examining the E-ditch-ables and scrutinizing the list with an arched brow. The only one that felt harmless enough to her as well as fun were the Canary Creams and so she had reached for a box to read over the label a little bit more when she was joined by a boy who seemed around her own age.

At least her critical analysis of the products had helped cool her head a little.

"I don't," she answered honestly and with a bit of a heavy sigh while glancing back at the shelves and thinking about how fabulous it would be to feed a box of Nosebleed Nougats to Dafina Lloyd. Sadie was not a vengeful person, but she was a competitive one and despised losing. Especially when it was on a perfectly legal hit and she had simply been bested on the day such a cheap shot. "I'm trying to sort that out for myself, actually." Her own recommendations. The Canary Creams were staying, for now. "I've heard decent enough things about the Patented Daydream Charms, however."

...maybe some Puking Pastilles for the Slytherin who had messed with Ezra.

He was... also starting to have his own doubts about whether or not this was a good idea. Yes, he was upset with his sister because she couldn't keep control of her pet. But was it really worth doing something as... mean as most of these products seemed? He didn't see any point to giving her a nosebleed, or making her puke or anything like that. And also what if her creature got it first? Would these products be really dangerous in that scenario?

Glancing over at the other racks, his eyes were briefly drawn to the fireworks display. That might be a possibility. If he he found one in a particular shiny casing... well, the return of the item to Eliza's room might actually get her attention. He'd have to mull it over a little bit longer to ensure there was no potential dangerous downfalls.

For now, his attention turned back to the girl he approached, and he nodded in understanding at her sigh. Clearly he had no idea what he was doing or looking for either. "Do you have someone in mind you wanted to use something for?" Simple curiosity on that note. Blue eyes traveled to her hand and the box she held, before he gave a small nod towards it. "What's that one do?" Full of questions he was, just as per his usual, and he was sure that was not the end of them. Confirmed when she offered a suggestion, and his head tilted to the side in a bit of confusion. "That... sounds like a good thing. Isn't this a prank shop?"

Well. He hadn't actually been here before, so maybe he was actually making an incorrect assumption on what Weasley's Wizard Wheezes carried.

Well. He hadn't actually been here before, so maybe he was actually making an incorrect assumption on what Weasley's Wizard Wheezes carried.
Sometimes, much to Arthur Dakest's despair, all Sadie had were her thoughts and analysis. He really should be thanking her noggin more so than shunning it seeing as it sometimes spared him certain exhaustion. Though, more often than not, it was a source of irritation as she rather enjoyed making things complicated for the mere sake of it just to ruffle his feathers. Something she was admittedly doing now as she looked over the options and, with a few, picked up the boxes and containers to read over the ingredients to see if she could determine which were the most active ingredients and what may work best to mimic certain results for her own private research and experimentation under Professor Flamsteed's wing.

She really could not wait to get back into the Hogwarts greenhouses and she had plans on turning her side of the fifth year girls dormitory into a sort of conservatory. Mostly for medicinal herbs and flora, but she was open for suggestion.

"Not particularly," she lied with ease. Not to be cruel but rather because someone still very much outside of her social circle and graces need not know her personal business. Her warm chocolate brown eyes shifted to the box in her hand, which she then removed her thumb from over the label for him to read despite her verbal explanation that followed. "Canary Creams. A biscuit that, when you eat one, you are momentarily transfigured into a human sized canary. Only lasts about a minute before you molt all the feathers and revert back." Her eyes flicked back up to his features, which she considered for a moment before deciding it was a rather pleasant face to look at. "Which I intend on purchasing." In case there was a follow up to that inquiry.

She tilted her head to the side, brow furrowed and lips pursed at his...question? Was it a question or more of a state of confusion. Sadie briefly considered the possibility that he had no idea where he had wandered into despite all of the empirical evidence right in front of him. "It is," she nodded firmly while dissecting his words to try and draw some sort of conclusion as to why he was asking her. "Are you under the assumption that pranks are innately bad or otherwise cruel acts? Because, despite the association with the word and its synonyms, one could argue that it is not the prank that takes on any innate qualities as much as it is the person who is administering the prank to the target. Also, pranks can simply be mischievous acts...which you could perform on yourself. Putting yourself under the influence of a daydream to pass the time during a particularly boring lesson fits the bill."

Her desire to prank Dafina Lloyd and the Slytherin who had gotten in a tissy with Ezra? Those were arguably innately cruel as they came from a place of revenge and Sadie wished to cause them discomfort and humiliation. What she may or may not wish to do to Art? That was more complicated. As things always were.

The more he thought about it and looked at other products, the more Tavion could feel himself leaning towards the fireworks. It didn't do anything to Eliza's person, it shouldn't cause any type of pain but just get her attention. Which was really what he was looking to do to point out the behaviors she was ignoring, and thus reinforcing. He just wanted all of his items to remain in his room and not continuously be destroyed. There wasn't even any type of reprieve at school since they were in the same house.

But speaking of that... perhaps it would be best to wait to initiate any type of revenge until they were at school. He had a sneaking suspicion that were he to do a prank at home, there would be retaliation. And if there was retaliation he could just see his father getting involved. And Braylon Sawyer in the middle of a prank war was not something any of the kids wanted, or needed, to see.

Tav was the type to take words at face value, so if she said she had no target in mind he 100% believed her. Why would he have a reason to not? Forever the too honest type, and far into the naïve category, he was the type to answer any questions openly and honestly - even when people had no business knowing it. Probably why he also found himself asking questions that were quite often rather prying, like the previous. "It actually turns someone into a bird?" He blinked back at her, not noticing at all if she had been observing his face, but rather assuming she was quite good at eye contact. A trait he liked in people. "That sounds really cool. That's almost something I'd want to try on myself... can you imagine getting to be a bird and fly, even if it's only a minute." Oh, maybe he should buy some and he and Figgy could have bird races to see how far they could travel before human again!

There absolutely would have been a follow up, but since the question was already answered he just smiled and nodded. "Best of luck to you on using them! If you ever find a target." Unless she was the target, as he had obviously already shown he would have understood the desire to do that.

His usual reasons for asking certain questions of people that it was probably not their expertise, was merely for the fact they were right in front of him. Such as now. He certainly did know she was just another patron, and didn't work there, but as he didn't immediately see the shopkeeper and had seen her... well, she was the poor soul that got the endless inquiries. The answer she gave too... took him quite by surprise. "Actually... I was under the impression pranks were strictly negative.", he admitted to her. Maybe he didn't think all were specifically cruel, since that was definitely not a word he never wanted associated with himself and he was here considering using something. "I guess my personal definition... or well, assumption, would have been that in order for it to be mischievous there would have to be a negative response from the other person after act was put into place." Which was why something that caused daydreams had not seemed like a good prank to him. Though, perhaps it would have been inconvenient for someone if it was in the middle of class and they then missed a lecture.

But that also seemed too mean.

Sadie's eyes had drifted, numerous times, to the Guaranteed Ten-Second Pimple Vanisher and her fingers were itching to grab a couple of those. She did not consider herself vain nor particularly concerned about her appearance, there was no time to think about that while you were tumbling or kickboxing, but there was still a quiet side of her that...really deeply and truly cared. Unfortunately, with growing up came hormonal imbalances and unwanted oil to the skin and that resulted in little things that made her look like either a unicorn or a rhinoceros depending on the location of said deplorable guest. She was also not one to care entirely about opinions...except recently a tiny voice had begun to emerge that absolutely had. So she would just have to be discrete about pulling them off the shelves and into her basket laying on the floor between her feet.

"Mmmhmm," she nodded lightly while pulling another box of said edible trick from the shelf. "Very clever bit of transfiguration potion..." Whatever thought she may have had was thwarted when he mentioned flying. "Not to be the bearer of bad news, but the balance between body mass and wingspan won't be perfect like you find in nature." Magic could do a lot, but it was imperfect too. Especially with things that occurred so naturally in nature. It was why whenever you perfectly transfigured an animal it lacked its own sentiency and had to listen to the castor to do anything or there was a limit to the how long the enchantment could last. "Logistically speaking, I don't think you would be able to get very high off the ground and would be better off sucking on a Fizzing Whizzbee if you wanted to get any air." And even those were only a little bit off the ground and only for a minute or so. "Could maybe hover for a bit if you flapped your temporary wings hard enough." Probably worth the experiment but...she was just trying not to let the optimist have his hopes crushed too harshly.

"Suppose it is debatable," she replied with a small shrug. "Schadenfreude. The the experience of pleasure, joy, or self-satisfaction that comes from learning of or witnessing the troubles, failures, or humiliation of another." Which some deserved and it was an illustration of inequity aversion...but she would spare that whole analysis for the time being. A whole other rabbit hole to go down and she was not so sure she felt comfortable doing that with just anyone. Even if she was already falling into her natural debater instincts. Magical Debate was one of her favorite extra curriculars at Hogwarts. "Take for example the Canary Cream Roulette. You place a couple into a bowl with other biscuits of the same appearance. There is one outcome in which you place said bowl for people to eat and just to trick people into a false sense of security by there being just biscuits until someone is taken entirely by surprise and turned into a canary against their will. On the other hand, you could sit with friends and try to not be the first person to eat a Canary Cream. The difference between the two is the awareness of the prank item and one clearly feels more benevolent than the other,. Or filling an entire hallway with balloons to surprise a person. What makes a prank a prank is the unexpected, the surprise factor. Not it's level of benevolence."

Part of the perks of being thus far uninterested in anyone, or even really the concept of dating outside of wondering if it was abnormal at 15 that he'd yet to have any interest, was that he also tended to not worry too much about his looks. He'd gotten some decent genes from his mom, and frequenting the labyrinth had helped him to finally grow out of his baby fat. So while he thought that at one point he noticed her eyes drift, the only thing that captured his attention -- and he assumed hers -- was the adorable little pygmy puffs. It occurred to him he had not yet drawn their likeness for his creatures sketchbook, a fact which he filed away so that he could remedy that as soon as he reached home.

"Transfiguration really is amazing." Granted, he did think all forms of magic were. With perhaps the exception of Divination, which was just not his personal favorite. He'd been so excited about the brief idea of actually getting to fly as a bird, it was hard for him to not visibly deflate a little when she pointed out it was not actually a possibility. He should have thought of that himself, but he'd been caught up with the wonder of it before the logic. "Oh... So as improbable as an European swallow with a coconut?" A true shame, really. He looked back at the canary creams again, deciding the money was not worth the experimentation at this time - especially when he'd yet to check the prices on the fireworks which his mind seemed to have settled on now. "I guess really the greatest bet would always be Flying though. Easiest way to get air time." Which even then for him was not that great of a chance, as he had showed he was not the most skilled flier of the family. Or probably any family if he was honest. "Maybe eventually I'll try it still just to see." The potential of it maybe it working one day when he tried put a little more pep back in him.

"That does sound exactly like what I was considering the definition of 'prank'." Which he was curious to look up more of the different translations and definitions of the words now, just to see if it had really been him creating a false assumption or if any translation had been the root to the idea. The fact she was so well versed and able to educate, which he immensely appreciated, peaked his interest and he looked at her again, an eyebrow raised the slightest bit. "Have you looked into all this before? You're really knowledgeable." A remarkably respectable thing. But the examples, prime choices and understanding hit him. "I've never thought about it that way, but you're right. Those are both have a certain mischief to them, but one could be described as 'good' while the other could be more of a 'mean' type of thing." And just as she said, it seemed awareness really was the biggest difference - as with awareness you removed the possibility of them being upset or hurt by the prank when they've been able to give consent in some cases. It really was all a fascinating idea, and he wondered why he hadn't really considered it often in the past. "Thank you. For explaining it and talking about it. I like discussions and learning" Some of his actual favorite things.

Nic had been wandering the alley all day looking for something that might offer some support to his sister in law. He knew she was going through a hard time and he wasn't exactly sure how to help.

A gift was the best he could come up with.

And it was not going great. Because now he was just in a joke shop thinking everything was much too childish for her.

Randy was soooo ready for summer. His daughters were with their mother, and he had a week with little going on. Little exciting going on. He wanted that hustle and bustle of the SUMMER!

He wasn't trapped in those yearning thoughts for too long, though, because the little chimes denoting that a customer had come into the store went off. Randy, on the first floor, tucked a plushie under his arm and smiled in the GENERAL direction of the front of the shop. "GOOOD DAY!" he made a round from within one of the aisles and saw the fellow. "Can I help you with anything sir?"
