Default Make Your Mark. Repair the Park.

Make Your Mark. Repair the Park.
A Summer 2104 Volunteer Project


Though the summer brought with it some sense of relief to those who fought alongside the order to defeat the neo-alliance, much of the destruction remained, and not only in the wizarding world. Muggle communities unlucky enough to be in the path of the escaped dragons suffered damage in all areas, from post offices to parks and everywhere in between. With this in mind, community organizers in partnership with the Department of Environmental Regulation and Protection have come up with a plan to help.

Posters were put up all over calling on local witches and wizards to step up and volunteer to help repair one of the hardest hit muggle parks in the area. Enchantments were already set up around the park and the blocks surrounding it, keeping the muggles away while the park repair was underway. Playground equipment lay labeled and waiting to be put together at one end of the park, the other side housed a series of large wooden flower beds meant for flower and vegetable seeds, all of which will need to be planted and watered. Gloves, tools, watering cans, and seed packets are all awaiting use. The huge brick wall at the very back of the park has been painted white and is open to all artists, young and old, to pick up a paint brush and create pictures and messages of hope using the various buckets of brightly colored paint just begging to be used. The goal of the day? To make this muggle park better than it was before and to prove that muggle hate has no place in the hearts of these witches and wizards.

So if you're free on the second Saturday of the month, come down to the park, pick up your complimentary Make Your Mark. Repair the Park. t-shirt, and get to work. All the help is appreciated and everyone is welcome. A refreshment table is set off to the side with waters, sandwiches, and crisps to keep everyone's energy up and music drifts through the air to keep spirits high.


This is an OPEN RP!

SPOILER!!: Eliana Low

Name: Eliana Low
Age: 16



To say she was glad summer was here was an understatement. Eliana had been at home with her family since the end of the war so she had time to heal and put into perspective everything that went on. Now she wanted to do good, she wanted to help be the change to move the the negative that went on to a more positive outlook for the future. Sine she had never met her birth parents she didn't know if they were muggles or not, so she wanted to help make the muggle world bright just in case.

Coming to the park she said hello to the workers and took one of the shirts. Eli then headed to find something to help with and picked the planting. Slipping on the gloves she knelt down and started working on a little spot to start planting.

Staying out of the house as much as possible was Luke's current summer goal, so when he'd heard about this "repair the park" stuff, he knew he wanted to be there. It was both a way to keep himself busy for awhile and a practical, tangible way to help out after...everything.

Plus he just enjoyed being outside and working with the plants. It was calming.

So of course he grabbed a pair of gloves and some tools, then knelt down at a spot near Eliana to help get some more of the soil ready for seed planting.

Or just Jack, if you'd prefer.
Former part-time Ravenclaw, full-time Dumpster Fire
19 years old, uh currently in a state of confusion until he lands on a career path
Hogwarts Class of 2103
Where there was a volunteer project, there was usually a Jackson Bole not too far away. He liked the community and he liked being helpful, so what better way than to combine two of his favorite things!? It was a total win-win. Both for Jackson and for the good cause of getting things done. The t-shirts were always nice too, he had a big collection of them now, back at home. Not that he needed t-shirts to get him to join in on the efforts. It was just nice to partake in service alongside others. Aaaaaand he was coincidentally free the second Saturday of the month (and every Saturday after that too). So here he was. He invited all his friends, of course, but whether or not they'd show up would be a mystery. He loved making new friends though, so that was A-OKAY with him!

"Hey!" Upon arrival, he immediately lit up. It was nice to see younger ones show up. That wasn't something that happened much during the school year, but they always brought enthusiasm when they were able to join in. Still looking their way, he swayed along to the energetic music. "D'you guys know what song this is?" Super fun and upbeat. "I'm digging it!" Well, technically, they were digging it. Ha, get it? Because planting? Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuns.

Jackson laughed to himself as he made way for some of the playground equipment. Could he manage to build a slide on his own? Uuuuuuuuuuuuuh. Stay tuned to find out??????????? Maybe??????????? Might be a disaster, but????? Uh?????? As Mateo would say, YOLO ? ? ? ? ? Maybe?

Name: Ash
Age: 13

Pronouns: she/her

Ash was here. Repairing a muggle park. It would be wrong of her to not show. THERE WAS PAINTING. THERE WAS FOOD. HANDS-ON BUILDING AND PLANTING. There was people. People. She was sitting at the back, painting flowers on the wall and drinking a muggle lemonade. There were Forget-me-nots. Amaryllis flowers. Black-eyes susans. Pink Carnations. Chamomile. Dill. Hyssop. Zinnias. She was wearing a the weird park repair tshirt today, her temporary tattoo of a phoenix very visible. And symbolic, like the flowers. She hummed a tune to herself. The song was called Sad Song by Tchaikovsky. On brand, no?

Ash was all alone by the wall, which suited her just fine as long as she was painting and not thinking. Then she would definitely need company.

She wished she could paint a phoenix on the wall too. That would probably un-allowed, but muggles KNEW what phoenixes looked like. So, what were they losing? Still, she stuck to painting muggle flowers. For now.

When Lia had saw one of the posters while out with her parents, she knew she had to wanted to help. The park had been destroyed by dragons. Dragons. The very ones from the reserve. It sent had sent vivid flashbacks of that day and all that followed through her mind but she fought to push it towards the back of her mind. Even if just for a couple of hours. The chances of becoming dragon bait today were minimal, right?

Making her way over to wear the T-shirts were, she slipped her backpack off and choose one, tugging it on over her head and smoothing it out over her flowered sundress. Picking her bag up it was returned back to her shoulders, left slightly open so the creature inside could breath.

Not sure where to start, the twelve year old glanced around, rocking back and forth slightly on her feet. Painting. Planting flowers. Fixing stuff. Food. Music... Music? The tiniest of smiles started to form on her lips when she spotted someone swaying to the music that was playing loudly around the park. Unfortunately she couldn't be much help, it wasn't a song she was familiar with.

Eliana couldn't say she liked to play in the dirt, but she would admit this seemed fun and enjoyable for now. Pulling out some of the weeds she began to even out the dirt. Looking up she saw other's come to help out, a few she remembered from school. When Luke come over by her she smiled, "Ready to get dirty?" Turning she grabbed a packet of seeds and began placing them as spaced out as she could.

"You know I saw what happened at school, we all did, but I never imagined the rest of the world was looking bad too. This is awful what all they did." She wanted to help be the change in the right direction and mend what was broken. Honestly she didn't know her background, she could have muggles in her family and look what they went through.



What an opportunity, WHAT AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY! Anna Marie was loving being in London and enjoying giving back and starting all her new life adventures. She was settling in to her position at the ministry and after seeing the poster for this project she knew she had to go. She had to help out and give back. It was the best thing in the world and look at this place, this place needed them.

"Hello all, hello! What should I get started with? How can I help?" She wanted to do everything and all things but where to start? She saw a ton of school age kids and it filled her heart to see the young so eager to get started in helping. "I'm digging it, that's just great." She laughed loudly and headed towards the supplies picking up a few to get started.

Muirgen Tupper-Kavanaugh, she says her age is none of your business
Former Caerphilly Catapults' Beater and Coach


Okay, so Muirgen hadn't really gotten involved with the war, but she had a very good excuse reason. She had young children who needed to be looked after, at home. Thank Merlin they hadn't been at school, that would've been a different story otherwise. Phew. Thank you, Merlin.

Anyhow, she was now here to help! It was sort of her way of participating in the war, in a way. The safe way. The way that would continue to guarantee her children wouldn't be orphans, you know. Safety first, says the former beater.

Ahem. It was helping time! Muirgen had even brought her children to help, see! The more the merrier, and in this case she knew nobody's life was in danger, so it was all good and excellent! "Oh, 'ow nice!" She immediately reacted to the sight when they arrived. "I bet this'll look fab when we're done!" This ginger Welsh lady hadn't been a Hufflepuff for nothing!

Brenna Kavanaugh, 6 years old


As soon as they arrived, Brenna made a bee line towards the white wall and paints. There was someone there already, and she gave the girl a smile as she stood nearby. This older girl was humming a tune that wasn't the one playing loudly. Brenna watched her and what she was painting for a few seconds. "That's nice. What is it?" She asked, looking at the painting but really meaning the music.

SPOILER!!: Juliette Zabini-Riddle
Name • Juliette Zabini-Riddle
Age: 16
House: Gryffindor, will be a 6th year


Juliette had deliberately requested the day off from her apprenticeship for this. Her hair was tied back and up high in a ponytail, her eyeliner game was strong and it was accompanied by a bold lip. Yes - Juliette was scarred for life for what had happened the last term but she could look good doing it. And continue to ignore all her feelings and pretend it hadn't happened.

The lioness smiled at those she passed and grabbed a t-shirt. "Make your mark," she read aloud. Well, that was both cute and a bit motivational, wasn't it? She slipped the shirt on over her tank top before noticing a younger girl who may or may not have looked lost? Perhaps that's just what Juliette told herself as a reason to approach her - not that she ever needed a reason to talk.

"So, what do you think you're gonna get started on?" she asked the younger girl.

Was someone asking Ash a question? About "it"? Did she miss something? "What is?" The painting? The music? The tattoo? What? Also, who was she talking to? Ash turned around to see the most adorable smol child... Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. "The music, the painting, or the tattoo?" Ash needed *clarification*. Also, smol child alert. How was she supposed to be reflective with an ADORABLE CUTE CHILD on the loose? Standing right next to her. How could she even function? Just. Awwwww. Who ever thought that Ash would care about little children? But she was such a little child. Awwww. Little innocent happy child. Ash was kinda forgetting about whatever it was she was supposed to be doing. Small child= adorable distraction.

What was she supposed to be doing? Right, painting. She picked up a brush. "What were we talking about?" Did Ash have a whole conversation with her without paying attention or remembering it? She was worried that might have happened. It very well could have. Well, since Ash didn't remember having a conversation, she just decided to act as if this was the beginning of the conversation. Not much else she could do. Such was life.

SPOILER!!: Paul!
Name: Paul Myers
Age: 72
Former House: Ravenclaw
Profession: Former Herbology professor; currently private greenhouse owner (retired)


Paul had luckily survived this past year even after that dreadful battle at Hogwarts; the older man was tired, incredibly so lately, but he had regained some of his former zeal once Milton LET HIM out of the vineyard.

But Merlin, his partner was uptight lately. He supposed he didn't blame the man, for he had had to go to Mungo's after the battle just to ensure he was all good to go. But it was relaxing the last few weeks; retirement was serving him well, his dogs were thriving, the vineyard was doing amazingly, and his greenhouses were all swell! He had heard about this little gathering to help the park, and he knew he had to come! Milton was here, too, begrudgingly so.

There was a lot of children and a few adults, but Paul looked around for the person in charge. He wanted to start! "Yoooohooo? Any of you lot know who's in charge?" he asked as he pushed his glasses up his nose.

SPOILER!!: Oliver!

Name: Oliver Petrov
Age: 28
Occupation: Care Worker at Stemp House
Accompanied by: Ivo! (Australian Shepherd)


When Oliver had seen the sign for the park cleanup, he had been all for the idea. The war hadn't just affected the wizarding world. Muggle parks and other buildings had been caught in the crossfire, and they didn't even know what the real cause of destruction had been. He was happy to do his part to help rebuild, especially a park. He had brought Ivo along for the day. His dog was pretty well behaved so he wasn't concerned. He would stay on his leash near him as Oliver did whatever it was he needed to do.

When they arrived Oliver stood and looked over who was there and what jobs there were that needed to be done. Very quickly he spotted Paul and Milton! "Hello!" He called and waved at the two of them. And then he caught sight of the wall and the painting supplies and immediately headed that way. Oliver was an artist, so it should surprise no one that this is where he would choose to spend his time. He chose a blank spot of wall a little ways away from a pair of children and contemplated it. "What do you think?" He asked Ivo, who just wagged his tail.

Painting. Planting.

Plants. Paints.

Why was it so hard to decide? Shouldn't this have been much easier?

Dahlia just wanted to make the park resemble a park once again. For it to be bright and cheerful the way it once had been. She wanted a smile to form on kids faces when they got to see how the park looked once it was fixed up. They all deserved a nice place to play and have fun, to be little kids, run around and have a good time with friends and families.

"I haven't decided yet," she answered quietly, looking up at the older girl who she was sure she had seen before but couldn't quite place a name with the face right now. "I know a lot about plants and flowers but.. there's a few people already doing that..."

Really it didn't matter what she did, did it? As long as she was helping out in some way. That's what was really important.

"What you're singing." Brenna replied, looking from the painting to the painter. "It's pretty." She said simply yet really meaning it. She had never heard that tune before. Pretty, pretty.

When the older girl looked funny for a while then asked what they were talking about, Brenna tilted her head in confusion. "I don't know." They were talking about something? "What're you painting?" She decided to ask that too, as she pointed at the wall. "Can I help?"

"Oh. That's Sad Song by Tchaikovsky. I learned how to play it on the piano the other day. And I'm painting flowers. I want to paint phoenixes, but I don't think I'm allowed. Sure you can help. Paintbrushes are right there." Ash pointed. Sure the girl could help. Ash had no idea who this was, or if the kid was lost, or if they already discussed this, but hey, there was nothing wrong with painting. So even if the kid's parents showed up, they wouldn't even kill anybody. Still, better safe than sorry. "What's your name?" It better not be anything ending in Upstead or Rosier. People whose last name was Upstead or Rosier were out to get her. At least some of them were. But a little kid had exactly a 0% chance of knowing Unforgivables, so she was probably safe. I don't need to be suspicious of everyone, Ash reminded herself. Especially not adorable small children. Then again, adorable small children are exactly the type to make you let down your guard. Could be a bad person in polyjuice. Oh, shut up brain, I'm chilling. Not being paranoid today. And that was the end of it. Because she was in charge all of the stuff in her brain. And that included thoughts. So there.

Paul had luckily survived this past year even after that dreadful battle at Hogwarts; the older man was tired, incredibly so lately, but he had regained some of his former zeal once Milton LET HIM out of the vineyard.

But Merlin, his partner was uptight lately. He supposed he didn't blame the man, for he had had to go to Mungo's after the battle just to ensure he was all good to go. But it was relaxing the last few weeks; retirement was serving him well, his dogs were thriving, the vineyard was doing amazingly, and his greenhouses were all swell! He had heard about this little gathering to help the park, and he knew he had to come! Milton was here, too, begrudgingly so.

There was a lot of children and a few adults, but Paul looked around for the person in charge. He wanted to start! "Yoooohooo? Any of you lot know who's in charge?" he asked as he pushed his glasses up his nose.

Julian wasn't in charge per se, but he was the man with the magical megaphone and that meant he was the one who'd be getting things started. As if on cue, the twenty-eight year old jumped up onto a boulder and grinned at the growing crowd. "Hello and welcome to all! I can't tell you how much we appreciate you coming out to help repair this park today! My name is Julian Jordan and I'm one of the many community organizers who have come together to make this possible! Before we get started, I'd like to give a special shout out to the ministry's Department of Environmental Regulation and Protection for sponsoring today's event and donating so many beautiful plants and seeds!" He paused, giving the crowd an opportunity to show some love to the environmental peeps. Doing his part, he offered a fist pump and then continued on. "We've got lots of opportunities for you to help today. If you're good at building, might I suggest you lend a hand putting together some playground equipment? Those with a green thumb are encouraged to help plant seeds and repot some of the larger plants into the flower beds and larger pots around the park. For the artists of the bunch, we encourage you to help make our mural of hope the most by painting inspiring words or pictures that'll help this park be the talk of the town. We've got all the supplies we could need and if you need help finding something, don't hesitate to ask!" He paused again, offering a grin. "If you get hungry or thirsty, there are plenty of refreshments to energize you and don't forget to pick up one of your complimentary t-shirts if you haven't already! Now let's get moving, everyone! Let the work begin!" Suddenly the music picks up, a pop-punk tune that Jules can't help but bob his head to as he hops down from his place on the large rock and sets the megaphone down. Now, where did he want to start?

Default play equipment for Jericho | wall art for Candela

SPOILER!!: characters making their appearance in this post :3

..............................


He probably should have tied his hair up, but his luminous blonde locks had been constricted in fishtail braids, tight man buns, and high ponytails for the past few weeks thanks to the various tournaments and training camps he was involved in...so his silky friends deserved a break and to flow freely with the wind. As did he. As much as he loved his profession, it felt nice to hang up his wand for the weekend and return to his muggleborn roots. Especially seeing as this location was just a stone's throw away from his own backyard.

Standing at 6'2" and with his black tank top showing off the sleeve tattoos covering both his arms, the right side in color and left exclusively black ink, Jericho was surely a site as he arrived at the park with his teacup pig, Poppy, on a leash by his side. Poppy had been among one of the piglets he and one of his mates had found among an abandoned litter a couple of months back and, while the others had taken to their new mama sow's teat...Poppy had struggled and never quite managed. Jericho could only assume this had to do with her being the runt of the litter, along with a more passive personality to her own detriment, and had bottle fed her himself. Apparently now he was her mama sow and the man had absolutely zero qualms with it.

Crouching down to give Poppy a bit of a nose-nose, he pulled from his back pocket a backpack "sack" of sorts and laid it on the grass. "Come on girl, in you go," he smiled to the pig who then sashayed herself right on inside, made a u-turn, and sat down with her cute little head peeking out the top. Careful as he moved, the freckled man slipped his arms through the straps and voila, piggy in a blanket. Of sorts. The carrier was made with dogs in mind, but Poppy hardly seemed to mind.

Now...did he stick to his comfort zone and garden or...stretch his repertoire a bit and help with the playground equipment? When life gave you lemons...you made yourself a lemon tart.

"Hey, you mind helping me lay out all the pieces for these swings?" he called out to the younger fellow (JACKSON!) standing nearby instruction manual for that and turned it over...and over and over and over in his hands.


* * * * * * * * * *


Having heard about this opportunity during one of her trips to the Ministry to reschedule her apparition license, it was a given that Candela would be jumping at the opportunity for a bit of community service. Especially when there were children involved. After all, she was constantly repainting the play structure and surrounding walls of the playground just outside of her and Kaiser's flat with the changing of the seasons or entirely on a whim. Or simply when the officials painted it back to a sterile navy blue and surrounding walls a withered gray. Playgrounds were meant to be places of joy and it was truly remarkable how city officials and adults could forget this simple fact in favor of practicality and what was considered low maintenance. Her intent was not entirely selfless seeing as her desire was to create a playful and welcoming space for Elio when he eventually moved in AND the creative outlet was something she flourished in, but the neighborhood kids seemed to enjoy the transformations from the 'playground fairy'.

So of course she was over at the wall with a brush in hand ready to get going on the mural. It may be a bit of a cliché, but she had always enjoyed those murals where you could stand in front of them and look as though you had grown wings or that you could pose in front of and the optical illusion helped transport you in to the piece. Slipping on her volunteer t-shirt and grabbing some equipment, Candela had been tempted to loop her arm through Jackson's as a surprise and drag him over to the wall with her...but he seemed to be preoccupied at the moment. She would surprise him later...maybe with a bit of paint to his cheek.

"They know what a phoenix is," she chirped encouragingly to one of the younger girls present at the wall (Ashley). "I think you should paint one and the symbolism is very fitting. I can paint some phoenix wings beside yours so that when you stand in front of it it is as if you have become one yourself. " She likewise smiled at the other little girl (Brenna). "I'm Candela. What are your names?"

Where there was a volunteer project, there was usually a Jackson Bole not too far away. He liked the community and he liked being helpful, so what better way than to combine two of his favorite things!? It was a total win-win. Both for Jackson and for the good cause of getting things done. The t-shirts were always nice too, he had a big collection of them now, back at home. Not that he needed t-shirts to get him to join in on the efforts. It was just nice to partake in service alongside others. Aaaaaand he was coincidentally free the second Saturday of the month (and every Saturday after that too). So here he was. He invited all his friends, of course, but whether or not they'd show up would be a mystery. He loved making new friends though, so that was A-OKAY with him!

"Hey!" Upon arrival, he immediately lit up. It was nice to see younger ones show up. That wasn't something that happened much during the school year, but they always brought enthusiasm when they were able to join in. Still looking their way, he swayed along to the energetic music. "D'you guys know what song this is?" Super fun and upbeat. "I'm digging it!" Well, technically, they were digging it. Ha, get it? Because planting? Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuns.

Jackson laughed to himself as he made way for some of the playground equipment. Could he manage to build a slide on his own? Uuuuuuuuuuuuuh. Stay tuned to find out??????????? Maybe??????????? Might be a disaster, but????? Uh?????? As Mateo would say, YOLO ? ? ? ? ? Maybe?

Turning she grabbed a packet of seeds and began placing them as spaced out as she could.

"You know I saw what happened at school, we all did, but I never imagined the rest of the world was looking bad too. This is awful what all they did." She wanted to help be the change in the right direction and mend what was broken. Honestly she didn't know her background, she could have muggles in her family and look what they went through.


Luke hadn't been paying much attention to the music until some older guy commented on it. He paused and looked up, considering it for a moment. Yeah, he didn't recognize the song...but even if he DID, he wouldn't have felt like offering an answer after THAT pun. Merlin. "Clever." His tone was flat though, because there was nothing clever about puns. Or maybe he was just being a grump who refused to appreciate a good pun. It was probably that.

But anyway.

He nodded at Eliana. "'Course." There was something about working in the dirt that was almost therapeutic in a way. Bonus points for it being for a good cause too.

Once one spot was dug and ready for seeds, he moved to another spot next to it. "Yeah. Kinda forgot about the dragons for awhile honestly." The whole dragon reservation disaster had quickly been overshadowed by everything that happened afterwards. And with the inability to communicate with the world outside Hogwarts, it'd been easy to forget that the dragons probably caused quite a stir back then.

Now, this was the kind of helped Natalie could get behind. Casual, community support where no lives were in danger and she didn't have to use offensive or defensive magic. She had wanted to help, truly, but the former Slytherin knew that if she had flung herself into battle, she wouldn't have lasted five minutes. And even though she knew she shouldn't, she felt bad that she couldn't have contributed in that way, so volunteering for this park cleanup project made her feel like she was being helpful.

Nat arrived at the park with her best friend and took a look around. "Ooh, look. T-shirts." She immediately bee-lined for the cute t-shirts and picked up a small size. "Cute, aren't they?" She handed one to Emilia and then grabbed another for herself, just as someone named Julian jumped up onto a big rock and started talking to everyone.

She definitely wasn't a builder, and hadn't done art in years... but she certainly had a green thumb. Nat turned to Em. "Fancy planting some seeds?"

When Oliver had seen the sign for the park cleanup, he had been all for the idea. The war hadn't just affected the wizarding world. Muggle parks and other buildings had been caught in the crossfire, and they didn't even know what the real cause of destruction had been. He was happy to do his part to help rebuild, especially a park. He had brought Ivo along for the day. His dog was pretty well behaved so he wasn't concerned. He would stay on his leash near him as Oliver did whatever it was he needed to do.

When they arrived Oliver stood and looked over who was there and what jobs there were that needed to be done. Very quickly he spotted Paul and Milton! "Hello!" He called and waved at the two of them. And then he caught sight of the wall and the painting supplies and immediately headed that way. Oliver was an artist, so it should surprise no one that this is where he would choose to spend his time. He chose a blank spot of wall a little ways away from a pair of children and contemplated it. "What do you think?" He asked Ivo, who just wagged his tail.


Paul had spotted Oliver soon after the boy arrived, and he sent him a wave as well. The doggie was SOOOOooOoooo cute wasn't he?! The Herbologist was disappointed when Oliver wandered to the painting area, but hey! Was he surprised? NO! The white-haired man merely chuckled as he cupped his hand over his eyes to see if he could find an ADULT in CHARGER because NO ONE HAD ANSWERED HIM. Paul was about to take over himself, and be pretty haphazard about it, too, when a man with a megaphone!!! began to speak.

Ahh.

Authority.

He missed it, sometimes. Having it. Listening to it. Life was so free these days. Paul swayed slightly in a peaceful manner Life was good today.

SPOILER!!: megaphone man!

Now, where did he want to start?


Ohooooooh! Free Tshirt?! Paul snagged two, one very huge one for himself and one smaller one for his fit Milton. He would try to keep the heart eyes to himself for now, FOR THERE WERE SEEDS AFOOT. Er, to plant.

Paul gestured with his hand as he pulled the tshirt on over his tshirt he was wearing, and cupped his hand over his mouth to make his words *LOUDER*.

"Anyone who wants to plant can follow me! I've got lots of experience, see!" he said LoUdLyyyyyy and went towards the pots, plants, and seedlings. He supposed using magic would be out of the question since this was a muggle park, but planting the ole' fashion muggle way would be a nice, relaxing change, wouldn't it? Especially if the plants were not trying to strangle you in the repotting process.

Paul pulled his own pair of feaux-dragonhide gloves on before getting to the ground slowly and with ~body creaks happening all over and kneeling to make the process more comfortable. His joints were already groaning, but that was nothing a potion couldn't fix later. Would anyone join him? Any of the kiddos? Hi, kiddos!

Name: Emilia Espinosa
Age: 26
Occupation: Auror


Things had been hard after the battle and while Emilia was resilient, she found herself struggling. Knowing there were good people trying to help remedy some of the damage that'd been caused helped to brighten her spirits some and it was a no brainer to volunteer her time for something like this. The fact that Nat had wanted to come too was a bonus.

"They're really cute, yeah." She slipped the shirt on over the tank top she was wearing, smiling a little as she modeled it for her best friend. Her attention shifted to one of the organizers when he spoke up and the auror nudged the brunette beside her when he mentioned how DERP had helped make this day possible. "It was cool of your department to help with this." Maybe it was a small way to make amends given everything that had happened at the ministry. Whatever the reason, Emilia was happy to be here and to help.

"I figured that's where you'd want to start," The brunette grinned, taking Nat's arm. "Yeah, let's plant. Looks like we'll be following his-" She stopped, recognizing the man who was talking about his plant experience as the very same older man that had helped her with Penelope back on that bridge. Small world. "I know him."

Uh, wow. Tough crowd. Jackson still smiled over at the younger ones (Luke, Eliana) anyway and mussed his hair in hopes of covering up his embarrassment. At least there was one person (Anna Marie) who appreciated his humor and boy, oh boy, Jack couldn’t have been more relieved. ”Heh, thanks,” he was still embarrassed though. For the record. Though, er, that wasn’t really unusual for him, to be honest. As for what they were meant to be doing though... ”M’not sure yet, I think we’re still waiting for more people to—”

And megaphone man.

Talk about great timing! Jackson turned back to the woman, gave her a bit of an easy shrug, before turning to listen to Julian. So maybe working with the equipment wan’t the best choice for the former Ravenclaw because he wasn’t necessarily the best builder… But seeing as no one else had stepped up yet…… Maybe he’d just, uh, look for an instruction manual? That’d be useful. Worse come to worse, he could find a set of instructions and pass it off to the next guy. But really, how hard could it be?

He reached up to ruffle his hair again, looking around in search of some sort of instruction set before his eyes fell upon a man (Jericho) looking at just that. ”Me?” Jackson pointed to himself in disbelief, looking around just to double check that he was the one being addressed. Jack(son) wasn’t exactly the most muscular build-it looking person here, so he couldn’t be too sure, y’know? But when he confirmed that there was no one else nearby, he smiled. ”Heh. I’d love to help!” He really would. It was his favorite thing to do.

Not wanting to waste another moment, Jack walked over and reached to begin unboxing all the various parts of the swing set. ”I should, uh, probably admit that I might not be the best with spatial dexterity.” But he would try! And that’s what mattered. Right? Right. Uh, hopefully??????????

Also???? Was that Candi?

He’d have to stop by and say hello later. But for now, "I'm Jackson, by the way."

Unforgivably Cursed | adultescent

The past year within the magical community had been difficult and upsetting to say the least for Raini Youngbird. And he could see the effects trickle into the muggle community as well, even if the muggles themselves didn't quite know why. He bided his time however, knowing the radical views would be struck down and he did what he could to dissuade the more extreme actions in his daily life.

And when everything had come to a head, once it was all said and done, Raini knew there would be plenty of fallout and clean up that he could assist with. This park might be one of the least of that, but it was still important to the community and to him. Plus, he was here to make sure muggle repelling charms stayed in place.

"Hello, Ms. Anna Marie," he greeted his fellow department head as he walked over to retrieve some supplies as it looked like she was doing the same. He wasn't completely sure where to get started first, but he knew he wanted to help. Ah, and there was the man in charge. Hmm, plants maybe? That sounded like something he could help with and he picked up some hand tools before heading over towards the man who was apparently in charge of the planting (Paul).

"I can give you a hand," he let the older man know as he knelt down with several seedlings. "Do you have a plan on where you want to put them?" But Raini started digging into the loose soil anyway, readying it for the young plants.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Kieran Kavanaugh was here with his wife, Muirgen, and their two children, Rhett and Brenna, as they were making their conservation attempts a really family activity. It would be good for the kids to know the value of helping out the community and he enjoyed any time they could all get out in the fresh air.

Keeping an eye on their young children and where they wandered off with some of the other kids, he followed Muirgen in and looked around a bit. "Where would you like to start? Maybe we can help with some of the playground equipment.." He had some strong arms after his many, many years of playing pro quidditch, even if he was retired from playing now, but he still had the strength that might come in handy for rebuilding.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Where was Brenna going? Ten year old Rhett Kavanaugh watched idly as his younger sister immediately headed over to the wall and an older girl (Ash). He watched them a minute, then walked over there himself, calling out to his parents as he left, "Bye!"

"I want to paint too." He reached for a brush and looked at the wall, assessing a moment. "The flowers are nice," he informed the older girl. "What are you gonna paint, Bren? Too bad we can't paint a quidditch scene." But he knew it was a muggle park and they didn't know that game. What else would be cool that was also cool with muggles though? Phoenixes? Rhett looked up at the lady (Candela) - wow, she was beautiful! "Yeah, let's paint some phoenixes! They're super cool!"


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Xanthe Walker hadn't been back in town for very long, but not long after she arrived had she heard about the park restoration project. Painting murals was right up her alley, so when she knew that would be part of it, she made sure she'd have the time to join in.

Xan brought her own supplies in a bag slung over her shoulder. And as she stepped into the park, she couldn't help but notice her dear friend, Candi. She nearly squealed in delight at the sight of her, but instead of drawing any attention to herself, she crept up quietly behind her then reached around to cover her eyes with her hands.

SPOILER!!: characters making their debut in this post

......................

Always in a charitable mood, Baylen had been keen about the opportunity and had heard about it through the grapevine from the parents of some of his dance students. He still needed to set an official launch date for the studio, it was currently a closed circuit of sorts and a space reserved only for those he had been training as regulars for some time now, but something was still holding him back from properly committing to it. For the past year the reason had been that he could launch into the next stage of his career without the trio of kids (Flynn, Yoyo, and Emmerson) who had first sparked his passion for applying his credentials to teaching. But the crisis at Hogwarts, the Third Wizarding War, had concluded months ago now...and while the ripples were still felt, there really was nothing external holding himself back.

Maybe whatever reason was preventing him from setting a date for his studio also had him backflipping and moon walking his way around the topic of setting a date for himself and Junia. Truly, a great mystery to life...that he could continue to not think about some more.

Wearing his complimentary t-shirt like a bandana, Baylen made his way over by means of a pop 'n' lock grapevine to one of the flower beds and got busy with a bit of weeding beside two younger kids [Eliana & Luke!] who were busy talking about dragons by the sound of it. He figured, based on appearances and context, that they were Hogwarts aged kiddos and...well...Baylen gave them MAJOR props for being out here right now. "Hiya," he grinned while tugging on his t-shirt-bandana as though he were tipping a hat to them both. "You two happen to know where we are popping the weeds? Or think I can just make a pile right here?"

Jack(son) wasn’t exactly the most muscular build-it looking person here, so he couldn’t be too sure, y’know? But when he confirmed that there was no one else nearby, he smiled. ”Heh. I’d love to help!” He really would. It was his favorite thing to do.

Not wanting to waste another moment, Jack walked over and reached to begin unboxing all the various parts of the swing set. ”I should, uh, probably admit that I might not be the best with spatial dexterity.” But he would try! And that’s what mattered. Right? Right. Uh, hopefully??????????

Also???? Was that Candi?

He’d have to stop by and say hello later. But for now, "I'm Jackson, by the way."
Poppy gave a bit of a whinny and a squeal as he began moving around and was clearly enjoying herself for the time being. Hopefully by the time she became restless and in need for her apple slices there would have been plenty of progress made with the park. Still turning the instructions around and around, Jericho began to walk a figure either over the earth to be utilized for the swing set. Just needed to find that sweet spot in the ground first...which meant it was time for the shoes and socks to come off.

"With these sorts of matters...I find it best to avoid defeating oneself before even beginning," he hummed while giving the instructions one last turn over and his bare feet settling on a patch of grass which he then bounced upon alternating between his heels and toes. "I am sure you will exceed your own expectations. You just have that kind of aura about you." Drawing an X in the soil with his heel, Jericho tucked his hair behind both ears and looked back over at the younger blonde. "Jericho. And this cutie on my back is Poppy," he introduced with a spirited thumb jab towards the teacup pig. "It's nice to meet you, Jackson." His soothing blue gaze shifted back to the ground and the X he had drawn and then back to the instructions and then at the end product visual provided at the bottom of the page. "Here for one of the A frames," he nodded confidently. "I'll help you lug it over and then we can measure where to lay out the next one based on the length of the support beam."

And he would just keep his shoes off for this, a bit unwisely, perhaps, considering exposed feet and any sort of construction did not mix well. The grass just felt too pleasant between his toes to pass the opportunity up.

Smiling as another youngster joined them, Candela crouched down to look at all of the paint options and nabbed a gray paint bucket and brush to sketch the outline of the wings she had envisioned in her head. "How about...you take this spot right here," she offered him while painting an oval with the same gray paint to mark off the area. "And paint the very best phoenix you can. What kind of pose do you think you want to paint it in?"

Brush back into the bucket, the former Hufflepuff set to outlining the wings - which firstmeant she needed to figure out the wingspan. She had just finished a hurried couple of brush strokes for the left wing and was stepping back to evaluate when a set of hands come out of nowhere and covered her eyes. Jumping slightly where she stood, Candela squeaked softly in surprise and that quickly turned into delight as she recognized the voice almost instantly. "Xanthe!" she chirped while reaching up to remove the hands from over her eyes and turn around to hug the older girl. With the brush still in her hands...this meant that she also applied a bit of paint to the blonde's hands...and arm...and then a bit to her back as the curly haired brunette tossed her arms around her for a hug. "I had no idea you would be back in town! It'sso good to see you!"

Did she need to be playfully cross with Frederick for not letting her know?!

So. Community Service.

This was...new.

Never had he imagined that James Summers and community service would be in the same sentence. At least not...in this legitimate sort of context. Back in his earlier Hogwarts days he would have used the word for more inappropriate adventures that had absolutely nothing to do with the betterment of the community. Just don't tell his younger self that. Back then he would have insisted that his presence alone was for the betterment of all communities. James had been...humbled over the years. Specifically the past year or year and a half.

Which brought him to this moment at the recommendation of some of his new housemates and only encouraged by his manager and sponsor. While somehow the press had not been kept in the loop about his situation, something he suspected Zac had also thrown hush money at, there was still some image damage control to take care of.

So...he was here. Ready to get his hands dirty and his muscles to good use. But first...did he see snaaaaaaaaaacks?

Totally ignoring the shouting from the old geezer over that way (ha, the man had roasted himself with the 'lots of experience line'!), James sasquatch walked (it was a signature runway walk that some designers 'gagged' over) his way over to the food and drink while passing right by a familiar-ish face. "Oh, hey. Natalie was it?" he snapped his fingers in a form of finger gun and accompanying wink. And since the brunette wasn't alone but with another brunette, he tried not to trip over his own tongue to greet her friend. Girlfriend? Friend? The other brunette. "Hey," he greeted with a small little head nod.

Now...he had some snacks to inspect. Quality control and all that. Ooooh finger sandwiches! Don't mind if he do.

Especially when there were children involved. After all, she was constantly repainting the play structure and surrounding walls of the playground just outside of her and Kaiser's flat with the changing of the seasons or entirely on a whim. Or simply when the officials painted it back to a sterile navy blue and surrounding walls a withered gray. Playgrounds were meant to be places of joy and it was truly remarkable how city officials and adults could forget this simple fact in favor of practicality and what was considered low maintenance. Her intent was not entirely selfless seeing as her desire was to create a playful and welcoming space for Elio when he eventually moved in AND the creative outlet was something she flourished in, but the neighborhood kids seemed to enjoy the transformations from the 'playground fairy'.

So of course she was over at the wall with a brush in hand ready to get going on the mural. It may be a bit of a cliché, but she had always enjoyed those murals where you could stand in front of them and look as though you had grown wings or that you could pose in front of and the optical illusion helped transport you in to the piece. Slipping on her volunteer t-shirt and grabbing some equipment, Candela had been tempted to loop her arm through Jackson's as a surprise and drag him over to the wall with her...but he seemed to be preoccupied at the moment. She would surprise him later...maybe with a bit of paint to his cheek.

"They know what a phoenix is," she chirped encouragingly to one of the younger girls present at the wall (Ashley). "I think you should paint one and the symbolism is very fitting. I can paint some phoenix wings beside yours so that when you stand in front of it it is as if you have become one yourself. " She likewise smiled at the other little girl (Brenna). "I'm Candela. What are your names?"

"I want to paint too." He reached for a brush and looked at the wall, assessing a moment. "The flowers are nice," he informed the older girl. "What are you gonna paint, Bren? Too bad we can't paint a quidditch scene." But he knew it was a muggle park and they didn't know that game. What else would be cool that was also cool with muggles though? Phoenixes? Rhett looked up at the lady (Candela) - wow, she was beautiful! "Yeah, let's paint some phoenixes! They're super cool!"

Yayyyyy. An adult who was agreeing with her instead of making dumb rules! Candela was her new favorite. "Can I actually? Just kidding, you already said yes!" There was a twinkle in her eye. Now that she got permission, nobody could say that she couldn't... so she would! Yayyy! "I'm Ash." Ash smiled at Rhett. "What if each of us painted a phoenix on one side, and then just the wings in the middle? Then someone could stand like they're a phoenix between two other phoenixes. I think that would look pretty cool." And the muggles would love it. Ash started painting a red and gray phoenix with its wings outstretched on the further-left side of the wall. She looked at Candela. "I like phoenixes. I have a fake tattoo of one already." And she was gonna get a real one later. When she was old enough. Phoenixes rose from the ASHes. Phoenixes liked fire. That settled it. Ash was basically a phoenix, but she only had one life. And no wings. Close enough.

Ash was at her happiest when surrounded by beautiful art. She was surrounded by beautiful art now. She was happy right now. She was going to remember this.
