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.

That was a perfectly reasonable question that unfortunately Elias didn’t have an answer to other than that his curiosity had clearly got the better of him. “Why are YOU in here if you agree with me?” How did she like the accusation back? “There’s a big difference between mature and boring” he retorted followed by a roll of the eyes.

What Octavia was describing as predictability, Elias would imply was reliability and ~consistency~ which he would say wasn’t exactly a bad thing. He might have been self-absorbed and judgemental but at least everyone knew what they were getting from him. “Because I don’t NEED to ‘lighten up’.” Nor did he take too kindly to being told to do it either.

Providing insight to life at Hogwarts would sadly be impossible. He might’ve appeared to be beyond his eleven years but this September was his first year too. He didn’t even have much familial knowledge of the school either considering his entire family had traditionally attended Durmstrang which quite frankly was where he wanted to be. “Me too” his nose wrinkled. “I’ll be a first year but I’m supposed to be at Durmstrang.” The far superior school in his ever so accurate opinion. In HIS head he was always right, anyway.

Oliver was out and about looking for gifts. The twins' birthday was coming up soon, and Dragomir's not long after that. Not that he thought his husband would be particularly interested in anything he could find at Weasley's Wizard Wheezes. But he thought that he might be able to find something for the twins. He glanced up and down some aisles. Fireworks were definitely a no. Prank items didn't thrill him, considering they would be in his house. And then aha, the toy aisle. That was what he was looking for.

Oliver was just looking at a self swinging skipping rope when he heard a loud sound. He startled and looked around him, looking for the source. It sounded like it was coming from his left, but there was nothing there but a wall. It was possible that it had come from behind it. He took a few steps closer curiously. Had anyone else heard that?

Bathes in Maple Syrup | Dancing Lobster | Mrs. Charlie Weasley | Seneca's Beard | That's So Fetch

This shop was overwhelming, or at least in Cora's opinion it was. The blonde had been walking up and down the aisles, hoping something on the shelves would catch her attention. She had one goal: to buy a gift for her nephew that he would like. Contrary to her nieces, she always had a hard time shopping for Logan. So the task at hand was easier said than done, largely because he was in that phase of his life where she didn't know if he was still into the silly joke items Weasleys' had or if his interests had matured.

She sighed, finding nothing that seemed interesting enough. It was times like these when she wished her brother or sister-in-law were there to lend a guiding hand. At this point in her alley venture, she was debating sending a Patronus to the boy's parents for advice or just defaulting to teach him a bit of alchemy and deal with the potential repercussions later. Actually, that last option sounded like a goo--

The instant a loud commotion registered in her ears, she immediately crouched down to the ground. Had someone set off a firework? The initial hunch didn't seem likely, since there was no dazzling light or further whizzing about the shop. So, now slightly curious, she slowly returned to her full height and peeked her head around the aisle.

"What was that?"

Very important stuff happening today. AND SOOOOOOOO. Laini made a beeline towards the WonderWitch collection as soon as she stepped foot in the store (accidentally knocking shoulders with a few unsuspecting patrons as she made her way through, SORRY).

And there it was. Like everything she had imagined it to be. (aka, she had always made a point to press her face up against the windows outside and longingly look at the Pygmy Puff display so she knew exactly how to imagine it to be). "Eeenie Meannieeeee, Miiinnneyyyyy- THIS ONE!" She picked an especially fluffy pink puff and squished it up against her face.

Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes was just one of those shops where Elio needed absolutely none of the merchandise, wanted less than half of it, and yet was inexplicably drawn to all of it. Half this stuff - if he were allowed to buy that much - would have come home and sat unused and untouched for... well. For probably ever.

Because Elio wasn't really a prankster or even really a jokester. His own brand of trouble seemed to be perfectly organic, that is, he couldn't seem to help it that trouble sprang up around him sometimes. He also couldn't imagine himself - here on the cusp of finally going to magic school - wanting to miss out on any of the lessons.

Yet here he was, arms full of Skiving Snackboxes, Extendable Ears, Instant Darkness Powder, the works. He'd wavered near the counter, eyeing the boxes of fireworks wistfully, because those were something he would like to get his hands on. Elio wasn't sure he'd be allowed to buy them, and even if he was, he only had 10 galleons (weeks and weeks of saved up pocket money) and seven of those were going on these things he'd already picked up, and even if he could afford fireworks and was permitted to buy them from the shop... Papà might be disappointed. Elio didn't know if that would definitely be the case, but his father did get kind of funny about being wasteful with money. Were fireworks wasteful? Hard to say. They were literally burned up, weren't they?

Of course, thinking about all that had made Elio dither over buying even his chosen items, and so he'd wandered around the shop a little longer instead, eventually ending up... here. Where the girl stuff was. Which was also where the pygmy puffs were, for some reason. And as Elio approached, he watched this girl puck up a pygmy puff and nuzzle it into submission. "Are you getting one?"

They were cute, but Elio was only tempted by them in the same way that he was tempted by everything else in here - flashy surroundings and bright colours doing all the heavy lifting. Really, he wasn't planning on getting any kind of pet, because he wouldn't know if Cosmo would like it.

Laini hadn't even noticed him at first. But when the boy posed his question, she was quick to answer it. "Um, yeah, I'm getting THIS one," she proudly held the creature out for him to inspect. Did he see how it was the cutest one of the whoooooole lot? It was no contest, really. AND she had already imagined their dream life together sooooooo. "I'm naming her Sophie. That's my sister's name." You see, Sophie graduated Hogwarts last year before Laini was allowed to attend. So Laini would bring Pygmy Sophie to school with her instead. Sophie 2.0. And she couldn't wait to tell Sophie 1.0!!!

For a moment, she looked like she'd say more about the matter, but instead she paused and looked at all the stuff he was holding. She had kind of forgotten that this was a store for more than just pygmy puffs. What other things people could possibly be interested in here was that of a total mystery to Laini Sage who hadn't really taken the time to peruse the other aisles. It kind of took her by surprise, honestly. So she focused on one or two of the things in his hold to wrap her head around it all.

"Are you getting all that?" Without meaning for it, her brows lifted.

Why hadn't he taken a basket?

Inspect the creature Elio did, but really, to him it looked like any of the other pygmy puffs on display, maybe because he'd never been all that interested in them. No offence to it, though. Or any of the others. He was sure they were all real nice and made good pets and all. But still, he couldn't help but imagine Cosmo playing hunter, if Elio ever brought one of these home, even though Cosmo was the nicest, cuddliest cat on the planet. Some fates Elio preferred not to tempt.

Any anyway, if he got a pet, it would probably be a cat of his own. But again. What if Cosmo didn't like it? (And then, if Cosmo was sad, what if it made Papà sad in turn?) So no. Elio didn't need a pet, even if he was about to go where Cosmo wouldn't follow.

"Won't if get confusing if they're both called Sophie?" Elio asked the girl, shifting the items in his arms as a couple of the boxes threatened to fall. Also, there was a tickly lock of hair that kept falling into his eyes, and he tried to puff his breath upwards to blow it free.

But then. Then. Elio could tell where the girl was looking, and he shifted the things he was carrying again, this time more self-consciously, and making them all the more likely to fall, though he kept his tenuous hold on them. "So what if I am?" he replied, a little defensively. Because of course he would be getting it all, even though he himself had only just minutes ago been doubting whether he would or should. Now that someone else had questioned the decision, it was clearly the course of action he would take, however obstinately. "What's wrong with getting all this?" And why were her eyebrows doing that thing? It wasn't that weird. It wasn't eyebrow-worthy.

... Was it?

Not that it mattered, because this was the stuff he was getting no matter what.

No, no, no. Sophie didn't just look like any other pygmy puff. She was so much fluffier and much cuter than all the other ones. Laini had an eye for these things, so that's how she knew. Only, she didn't exactly know if her pygmy puff was a girl. And also, she wasn't sure how she was supposed to know that kind of thing. And also, also, if it wasn't girl, would it be weird if she still called it Sophie?

"No," she answered the boy without any hesitation, not understanding what would make it so confusing. "I'm naming her Sophie because my sister graduated Hogwarts and I'm going to Hogwarts now, so I want Sophie to be with me. And Now! She can!" She punctuated the point by nuzzling Pygmy Puff!Sophie again. Did it make more sense now? Not that she cared to make sense to him, but it would be nice to be complimented for her cleverness every once in a while. She preened.

Wow, Laini, you're such a genius! Laini, that's so clever of you!

Laini, everyone in the world should love you and bow down at your feet and buy you as much ice cream as you want and also do your homework!

It wasn't much that she was asking for.

All this aside, she was judging his choices, yes. "Nothing, I guess," she shrugged, her eyebrows still doing most of the talking. "If you want that much stuff. Just seems like a lot." He couldn't even hold it properly. She'd offer to help, but she was holding her pygmy puff and also she didn't really want to right now. "I don't really get it." Why would anyone want instant ... darkness powder (...? she squinted) anyway?

Jeanne Morgan// Virgo Wilson // Draco Malfoy fan

Kyoya was out and about after visiting his brother's workplace. As much as he likes the dark and old interior of the Ministry of Magic, he doesn't really want to stay because everything felt so serious, not that his 14-year-old brain can process, but he just didn't like being in there. He found himself saying goodbye to his brother faster than the blink of an eye and into Diagon Alley, where he sorted himself through all of the shops before finally settling in, entering one.

Kyoya doesn't have anything he likes in particular in this shop, but he remembers his sister specifically told him to buy her something at the Weasley shop. But of course, she didn't tell him what, which makes his journey today extra harder than usual. What do girls her age like? Or at least from what he knows of her? "A pogo stick perhaps?" He thought to himself as his fingertips graze on the items around the shelf. He walked a few more times around the corners, his eyes searching the highs and lows of the inventory. Shelves filled with every rare item that you can think of. He stopped and laid eyes on one of those love potions. His hand taking one on instinct and stared at it for a while, mesmerized by the color. "Who would want such a thing?" and "does this really work?" All these thoughts crossed his mind, not that he will use them but he is curious about how it works and how this shop is capable of producing a lot of them.

And also, also, if it wasn't girl, would it be weird if she still called it Sophie?

"No," she answered the boy without any hesitation, not understanding what would make it so confusing. "I'm naming her Sophie because my sister graduated Hogwarts and I'm going to Hogwarts now, so I want Sophie to be with me. And Now! She can!" She punctuated the point by nuzzling Pygmy Puff!Sophie again. Did it make more sense now? Not that she cared to make sense to him, but it would be nice to be complimented for her cleverness every once in a while. She preened.

Wow, Laini, you're such a genius! Laini, that's so clever of you!

Laini, everyone in the world should love you and bow down at your feet and buy you as much ice cream as you want and also do your homework!

It wasn't much that she was asking for.

All this aside, she was judging his choices, yes. "Nothing, I guess," she shrugged, her eyebrows still doing most of the talking. "If you want that much stuff. Just seems like a lot." He couldn't even hold it properly. She'd offer to help, but she was holding her pygmy puff and also she didn't really want to right now. "I don't really get it." Why would anyone want instant ... darkness powder (...? she squinted) anyway?

Well that didn't make much sense. Elio couldn't see how a fluffy little replacement would be anything like having this real original Sophie around. He frowned slightly, and was tempted to point this out. Really very tempted. Because it didn't make sense. But even though it was very tempting to point out this flaw in her logic, something stopped him from saying it, in case it made him seem not-nice.

But that didn't extend to compliments, because that would be straight up lying. Again, Elio was not above lying, but he wouldn't lie in order to lose an argument. So he just said, "Oh." But he did not sound convinced. "Well. Alright."

And !! she apparently didn't get the memo that they ought to be nice to each other, or at least her eyebrows didn't. Nor did her words. And as if to counteract the girl's expression, Elio's own eyebrows dipped into an even deeper frown than before. He regretted, now, humouring the girl and not challenging her on the pygmy puff situation, now that she was trying to challenge him. "Well I do." He did. He did want it. "Because it's useful. You wouldn't understand." And it wasn't like he needed her to understand anyway. Nope. Elio Kaiser was the master of his own destiny, and his destiny was to buy all this stuff that he absolutely both needed and wanted. "I mean. You're the one getting a pygmy puff."

Did he feel bad for sort of accidentally insulting the pygmy puff when his real target was the eyebrow girl? Maybe a lot.
