Default The Three Broomsticks

The Three Broomsticks

Centered among the shops of Hogsmeade is a well enough known pub in the small village, called The Three Broomsticks. Not unlike the Hog's Head down the street in the strictest idea of pubs, drinks and the like, however it is the atmosphere that helps make the latter choice the one hailed by the mass majority. The outside of the building is a good preview of what the inside may look like with the same steep roof as the surrounding buildings, yet taller, with a sign on it's facade featuring, you guessed it, the legendary three boomsticks, all fixed around a lantern to light the patrons' way.

Once you enter the pub, smells and the warmth of the large stone fireplace great you as you place hats and coats by the door. Directly infront of you there are tables and booths lining the majority of the small hall with oil lamps placed on each one. On winter days it is usually hard to find a place beside the large fire grate but if you're early enough, only Merlin can say what will happen. To your left the bar and most likely the bartender Harold "Hops" Lagerty, await you and your order--a few stools await you to take a load off and shoot the breeze with others.

The bartender is pretty sociable to those who don't annoy him. He's seen his lot of warlocks, goblins, and Hogwarts kids to know which ones were trouble and which of those made loyal customers, so be sure not to be put on the first part of the list.

A few rules from the Shop Owner: No brawling, no shouting (angrily), no alcohol to minors, and don't go up the stairs, I live up there.

OCC Rules: No RPing for the shopkeeper and all other School RPG Rules apply.

She gave him a small smile, it had been a slightly stressful year, with the OWL's coming up and all. She hated that they didn't have much time together. When he said he missed her, she blushed a little and bit her lip. "I've missed you too." Her tummy fluttered when he wrapped his hand around hers. She loved the way his hand felt, gentle but rough and a little calloused, which came with practicing guitar. "I've been alright. Just really wish we could spend more time together even if it is studying." She truly missed being around him. He was so much fun and she loved learning new things about him.
When Bleu started giggling, Dylan frowned, looking at his girlfriend in confusion. What was so funny...? ... Foam? Wha- OH. Blushing slightly and laughing, he quickly wiped it away with his sleeve. "Thanks." He muttered quietly, laughing again.

He nodded in agreement. "Yeah, I know." Dylan frowned, giving her a hand a squeeze. "But hey, at least we get to hang out right now, right?" He took a sip of Butterbeer, making sure this time to wipe away anything he had on his face.

Hearing her say she would go jogging with him he smiled, "I like jogging with you." He liked doing many things with her. He actually felt like he had been in a better place since getting back with her.

Awesome they had a plan, that wasn't often, but for this they needed one. "Once we get back over there, we can check out around it and see the best way to slip in. Have to make sure no one else is around." Didn't need any squealers coming after them.* "Maybe we can hangout once in there a bit." He smirked towards her. It could be fun and if she was freaked out and needed to have his arm around her the entire time, well he could be the boyfriend for the job.

Here it comes, he knew better then to tell a chick what he actually waned the cat for. "Yeah I gave him a potion, it was the reason I took him in the first place. He's a mean one though. Scratched me a few times and has tried to scratch a few of the other guys. That's when I knew he was a keeper." He really wasn't that much of a cat person, but this one was different. He'd keep this one around for awhile, at least until he got bored of it.


They still had food? No way was she going to be able to eat another bite. She seen that he was looking at the last of the Mac and cheese. "You can have it. I can't eat anymore." Figuring that was what he was probably planning on finishing it anyway. "I like going with you." Grinning. Honestly, she just liked spending time with him. Doing whatever. As long she was with him, it didn't matter what they did.

This was going to be fun. Sneaking into the shrieking shack. She'd only seen it from the road. She hadn't been close to it. "I wonder if anyone else will be around." She hoped not it might be harder to sneak into with others around. "Oh, I was hoping we'd get to hang out. Once we got in." She grinned. If it was really haunted like it was supposed to be. He could hold her hand if she got freaked. If she did. Maybe she would act scared, just so he would hold her.

She wasn't mad. At least not when he said the cat has scratched him. She laughed "Good. I'm glad the cat scratched you." Okay not really but good for the cat. And the cat scratched some of the other guys too. Ha! Even better. She didn't care much for his dormmates except for Chance and Zander, they were her friends but she wasn't going to mention them. "That's even better, getting the other guys. So do you plan on keeping it?"

This was a hard topic to talk about. School was extremely important, but so was being with each other and they really didn't see each other enough. "Right." Bleu gave him a gentle smile in agreement. They really needed to figure out better times to see each other.

"Have you talked to you're parents about Christmas and summer yet?" She was super excited for both. She had sent off an owl to her mother earlier today about both topics. She really hoped her mother agreed to both ideas. Of course she would need to meet Dylan and his family first.

Dylan gave her a nod when she asked about Christmas and summer. "Yup! I was actually just going to tell you about that," He told her before taking another sip of his Butterbeer. "I owled my mum and she was really excited about the whole thing. She said yes, and she also said if your mum wants to visit as well she's more than welcome, I think she wants to meet her." He chuckled. Dylan was still a bit nervous having Bleu over though, he knew word had probably gotten around the house by now which meant lots of teasing right in front of his girlfriend...

Bart finished off the mac and cheese and grinned at her, “Do you think I eat too much?” He really was always eating, though he wasn’t sure what the issue was since he had always had the appetite. He smiled, “I like when you come with me. It makes it go faster.” He liked jogging, but he could admit that he was more motivated when she was with him.

“I assume others try to sneak in, but they probably fail. They aren’t as good as we are at sneaking where we shouldn’t be.” He gave her a smirk as he thought about where the best place would be to sneak into the old shack. “We’ll explore the rooms, there are probably a few. Wonder how dirty the place is? I bet it’s super creepy.” He was hoping it would scare her then she’d want to stay close and he could keep his arm around her. “It’ll be fun.”

He looked at her before laughing, “Glad you are happy a cat hurt my hand.” still laughing a bit he thought about the cat, “I’m hoping he gets Zander or Aegis a few more times.” He was still irritated by them for Cinna reasons. Aegis was his friend and he knew things went on when he wasn’t dating Cinna, but he wasn’t going to just like the fact that it did. “Yeah I’m thinking about keeping it. I’ll owl mom and see if she cares.” Though he was taking it home regardless, then when the girls saw it, he knew he could keep it.

Interview time. Tiberius had decided sometime over the winter that what the Sanctuary really needed was an internship program and, thankfully, the board had agreed. Now, he just had to actually find the interns and make sure that the first ones were worth justifying the program's continuation.

No pressure or anything.

Tiberius slipped into the Three Broomsticks, notepad and copies of Eden McGee's paperwork in hand. Things in that realm seemed in order, so it was really a matter of the interview. Setting up in the corner, he sighed a bit, hoping the noise wouldn't be too much. It really was difficult to manage this during the school year. Next term, he would advertise much earlier.. do interviews over the holiday break. Give tours of the grounds. That sort of thing.

Eden had put on her BIG GIRL PANTS today(even though she was wearing a dress) and tried to look SUPER presentable for this. She didn't have MANY dressed..and even then...nothing professional or..nice. SO she just...tried to play up to her style without looking too deviant or anything.

So here she was, quite nervous. She had gotten Clara to help with her MAKEUP and actually felt all.....ugh, pretty. It was a rare occurrence.

She glanced around the place, looking in one of the corners--oh. There was a man...who looked...older. And. Very handsome, she might add. Ugh. WHY was he HANDSOME. That was terrible luck...now she'd be STUTTERING the whole time--she just had to keep her HEAD, okay McGee?!

Green shirt..and....handsomeness.........Eden approached slowly and tried to think of ...what Iwin had said about....handshaking and whatnot. And eye contact. EYE CONTACT WAS VERY IMPORTANT, APPARENTLY. So she smiled as she stepped up to the table and held out her hand. "Hello--" she said, doing her best to seem all....adulty. "I'm Eden--you must be Tiberius--?" Mr. Tiberius?! SHE DIDN'T KNOW. Merlin. "Mr. Pryce." There we go.

She'd sit after they shook hands. Yeah? YEAH. She had her backpack slung over her shoulder, too..with OWL scores and...other stuff, too.

Tiberius stood as the girl approached, assuming it to be Eden, which was confirmed by her introduction. "Tiberius is fine," he said, extending his hand for a shake. He smiled kindly, hoping to put the girl at ease, before taking his seat once more.

"Please, sit," he said, gesturing to the chair across from him. "I was glad to get your letter. Why don't you tell me a little more about your interest in working with creatures and then I can tell you some more about work at the Sanctuary." He leaned back in his chair, crossing one leg over the other and rested his hands in his lap. He had brought a notebook, sure, but he wasn't quite interested in jotting down notes just yet.

Eden nodded. Tiberius. What an interesting name. Sounded all prestigious and whatnot. She smiled, still, and sat down, brushing her dress under her as she sat so she could be more comfortable.

"Well--um--" Iwin told her not to say 'um' or 'uh.' Ugh. That would be hard, because she was so nervous and felt so stuttery right now! "Well..I, you know...love animals." Ahem. Wasn't that obvious, Eden? "I have quite a few pets...and..I want to go to school for Creatures...so...I think this would be such a good experience for me-" and now that she was talking, she wasn't.....TOO HARD? "And I kind of have a thing for herpetology-" she assumed Tiberius would know what that was. "But I want to expand my horizons--and I've done a ton of research on snidgets--" she pulled a notebook out of her backpack and held it up, smiling meekly. "And I think they're so interesting--and I don't know--I just want to learn all the things--" Was....that weird? It was weird. Eden blushed.

She felt like she was a bumbling baboon.

Ugh.

"But--you know-I--" she took a deep breath. "I think it'd be fun and a learning experience and I like snidgets from I know about them......"

Tiberius watched her closely, picking up on the nerves. He certainly wouldn't hold them against her. He nodded as she spoke, making mental note of some of the highlights.

"Herpetology? Interesting." He leaned forward to jot that bit down on his pad. He found it promising that she already had a specialty in mind, even if it wasn't his own or that of the sanctuary. He thought it showed a commitment, rather than just the desire to play with cute endangered birds for a summer.

He smiled as she pulled the notebook out. "Ravenclaw House, correct?" He thought that's what he'd seen on her scores, but wanted to confirm. Wanting to know all the things... that was another good sign. He caught her blush and wondered if there was something he could do to put her more at ease... this wasn't supposed to be an intimidating experience. "Would you like a pumpkin juice or a cocoa or.." he hesitated before adding "or a butterbeer?" He was still working on being able to be around people drinking them so closely, but, well, he supposed now was as good a time as any.

"I'd like to hear more about that pets you care for."

"Well--yes--" and she thought she'd answer his 'what pets you care for' question, too, while she expanded on her herpetology interest. "You see, I have two snakes--" she held up two fingers--as if he couldn't COUNT--and then quickly put her hand down. Ooooops. "And--one is a corn snake--I got her first, the summer before last, and I fell so completely in love with the animals that...I decided I wanted to know more about them. And in learning all about them..I found another type of snake I wanted...a bush viper--now, I don't know how much you know about snakes?" she asked, kind of, because she didn't want him to think she thought he was DUMB, but she didn't want to not explain herself so..."But..they're very venomous and require a license...so...I went out, studied, and got my snake handling license this past summer." She kind of felt...proud after explaining all of that because...wow. She really did have something she was good at? She was good with her snakes.

She actually--yeah--she pulled out the pictures in her little wallet of her with her two snakes that someone had taken--probably Clara, or BB..."That's Daisy--the orange one--and that's Drago--the scaly one." She smiled. "I actually one another, but not yet--not until I graduate." For...reasons, yeah.

And..now that she was on about her babies--she felt much more at ease. She thought about his offer of drink..."Actually, hot cocoa sounds really nice--" she got out her money to...pay because..she didn't know the protocol for this at all. "And yes, Ravenclaw." If he couldn't tell....heh.

"I also have a crup...but I'm a bit more invested in my snakes, to be honest." She admitted. Though she did LOVE Luigi and when she was home, the crup slept with her...but still.

Tiberius leaned back and crossed his arms as he listened. This was a serious herpetology interest, then. He smiled as she went into the details of her pets, nodding a little when she talked about her bush viper. "You got your snake handling license at.. sixteen? Impressive." He leaned forward and jotted down another note and then looked at her photos. If she could handle a venomous snake with enough care, then she could likely handle the snidgets.. once she learned about their particular needs.

He waved away her money as she pulled it out. "Ravenclaw Class of '76, it's my treat." Ordering two, he sat up and rested his forearms on the table. He had one more question, at least for now, for the girl, who he was preeetttty sure he'd be offering a spot.

"Before I tell you a little more about our sanctuary, I have one more question. If you were to come work with us this summer, what do you think your biggest challenge would be?"

"Before I tell you a little more about our sanctuary, I have one more question. If you were to come work with us this summer, what do you think your biggest challenge would be?"
Eden nodded. "I wanted my bush viper...and...yeah. " She said quite softly. She felt like she was bragging. She didn't want to brag...that was weird. But she was blushing because he apparently thought it was impressive. She had never had anyone tell her something she'd done was impressive before...

AND he was paying? Okay, good. Eden wasn't even sure how much money she had with her.....

At his question, she pursed her lips in thought. Hmph.

HMPH.

"Well.." she began, "I think dealing with birds....after so closely and in an isolated way dealing with snakes...will be a bit difficult. They work so differently, you know? And their brains work in such different ways--" she said softly. "I hope that makes sense....sir?" she asked him meekly.

Tiberius tilted his head just a bit as the girl quieted when talking about her license. "Well, regardless of the reason, it is an accomplishment you should be proud of." He listened closely, nodding encouragingly as she answered. He was picking up on a little bit of a confidence issue while she spoke and he wondered if she'd need some more reassurance than others during the summer that her work was up to par.

"The sir is unnecessary," he said lightly, wrapping his hands around the mug of cocoa that had been delivered. "Let me tell you a little bit about what I hope this summer will look like and I think that'll get to your challenge."

Leaning forward a little, Tiberius took a moment to sip his cocoa and consider his thoughts. "I want to make sure that the internships are learning experiences, so yes, you'll be doing things that certainly will make my job easier, but I also want to make sure that you are getting a change to build some skills. So we'll do some training around care and handling, healing, habitat upkeep, those sorts of things. You'll probably end up cleaning some cages and doing that sort of work too, but I do want to make sure it's not all menial tasks."

He watched her closely for her reaction. Merlin knew his posting for the internship hadn't been terribly specific - it was hard to put together materials while dealing with a new baby and trying to keep his workload under control - so maybe this wasn't quite what she was looking for.

Stroking his chin he added one more thought. "After some of the training in the various areas at the sanctuary, you'll get to choose where you'd like to focus, and we'll come up with some sort of project together that you'll work on the second half of the summer. How does all that sound?"

Eden just nodded to everything so far....the sir part, the part about it being impressive regardless...yeah. She got it. And she was blushing furiously. Merlin, was really of age?!?! She was acting like such a little CHILD right now, or at least that's what she FELT like.

"Oh..I don't mind getting my hands dirty. I have to regularly make sure my snakes' cages are clean..and not to mention they shed, which is a biiiig mess." She said with a nod. "I don't mind cleaning up bodily fluids...of any sort. Doesn't really gross me out." She thought an employer MIGHT find this a good thing about a maaaaybe future intern. Because most girls didn't like doing that stuff...Eden just found it part of life. "So that's no big deal. At least not for me." Hmmph.

OH! He got a BIG smile out of Eden...."I...it sounds like it will be so fun...and...I don't know the words--but--I really hope you pick me." She said, quite bluntly, her blue eyes widening and sparkling in anticipation....."It would really make my summer....worthwhile. And I want to go to school for creatures so...I think it would be good....for that."

Tiberius nodded as she talked about her willingness to deal with some of the... messier aspects of creatures work. Good. There was little about the golden snidgets that would make people squeamish, really, but every so often... it could get a little unpleasant if you weren't willing to deal with some mess. A kind smile grew on his face as he listened to talk about what getting the internship would mean. This was exactly why he'd persuaded the board to offer an internship program.

Truthfully, he was all but decided. But, there was one more thing he intended to ask, and he figured he should stick to the interview plan. "Do you have questions for me?"

Eden sipped her hot cocoa for the first time of the interview because she had rambled out all of her nerves, finally. It was cool, though, so that a plus. It was quite good. She had actually never gotten a hot cocoa from here...always just butterbeer...

It seemed he was quiet now. Hmph. But--oh? Did SHE have any questions?

HMMMMM.

Eden thought for a few seconds and opened her mouth---and then shut it. Hmph. "Well-I guess--I mean--I'd like to make sure--well--I mean--" she leaned forward slightly. Iwin's letter was RINGING in her head. "The sanctuary is perfectly legal in every aspect, right? And nothing sketchy going on--or anything? No experimental breeding?" she asked, getting those kinds of questions out of the way first. And then--"How many days will interns work? What's the policy for sick days? Are we allowed days off? How long are the work days?" Maybe she had overlooked things on the flier...who knew. EH.

Tiberius had flipped closed his notebook and had looked away very briefly, but his eyebrow quirked at her question and he looked up a bit surprised. He supposed it made sense. The sanctuary was new and unscrupulous breeding was certainly a thing. But not at Colchester.

He shook his head in response to her question. "Everything is on the up-and-up. I'd be happy to show you or your family," because Tiberius did question whether this concern was coming entirely from the girl "all our documentation and permits." He did smile to make sure that she knew that her question was not ill-received. It was good due diligence on her part to ask.

But as for her hours... "I think your work schedule will be largely up to what you're hoping to do. My hope would be that you'd be at the sanctuary at least the equivalent of three full 8-hour work days each week. We can talk about how to split that up, whether you want to pick three days you're there the whole time or if you want to do weekday mornings or whatever makes the most sense for you. And if you have other summer plans like campus visits, we can work around them." He sipped his cocoa, his face making it clear that he was puzzling through something in his head. "As far as sick days, if you're ill, don't come. Just give as much notice as you can, even if that's the night before saying that you're not sure." Because someone would likely need to pick up at least some of her work that day.

"My family lives on the grounds, so I can be somewhat flexible with the start and end times." The benefits of seeing your workplace from your kitchen window. Of course, who knew what the baby's sleep schedule would be come July...

Eden normally would have been taking notes in her notebook, but he didn't have much to say. "I'd like that. Maybe over my Easter break?" she asked curiously. She felt so adultlike. Setting up potential APPOINTMENTS and whatnot. How FREAKIN' COOL. "I'll probably be accompanied by my cousin, though. He's...a bit closer to me than my parents." She explained shortly. He didn't need details.

Aaaand how flexible. She liked that. Lots of nods for you, Tiberius. "All right. I think I have some campus visits planned....I have to check the dates though. I also have a vacation planned for August..." she thought she'd inform him NOW. "Will we decide weekly my schedule or...?" She didn't mind working mornings or whatever. "I'd prefer to work every day so..my brain retains all the stuff I learn better." If that made ANY sense. Hmph. "Mornings sound....feasible." She was trying to sound like an ADULT. Was it wooooorking?

"Oh! You live there?! That's so COOOOOL!" she cried, suddenly excited, her blue eyes lighting up. And maybe the adulting had ended...because she was smiling like an excited kid a candy store.

Bleu gently bit her lower lip and gave him a small smile. She was excited and nervous about the whole meeting his family thing. She really hoped they liked her.

O________o

His mom wanted to meet her mom? Well..............."That's great! I'm glad she's excited. My mum is always really busy with her job at the ministry but I'm sure she would definitely want to meet you and your family." She smiled, but she couldn't get the nervous pit that had formed in her stomach to go away. She sighed and started playing with her napkin. She looked up at him, gnawing on her bottom lip.

"What if your family doesn't like me?" She really wanted them to like her....

Dylan smiled, excited for their families to meet - and nervous too...

Raising his eyebrows when she suggested his family not liking her, he shook his head firmly (so firmly that his hair flipped side to side a bit). "I promise, they'll like you Bleu. Why wouldn't they?" He asked as he fixed his messed up hair. "Just be yourself and they'll love you." He assured her, reaching across the table once more to take her hand in his and give it a gentle squeeze. "Maaaaybe not as much as I love you, but they will." Winking, he chuckled.

Tiberius closed his notebook and rested his hands on top of it. "That timing works just fine, and we can talk about dates and your work schedule then." He would need to finish interviewing, think about what skill sets the interns were bringing, and whatnot before he could actually set someone's schedule.

He had to chuckle a bit, though, at her excitement about his living on the grounds. Tiberius nodded. "A few of the staff do. Mostly those of us who might need to handle a quick task in off-hours." It was also, Tiberius thought, a great place for Hazel and Noah to grow up, but that wasn't at all relevant in this moment.

But this had gone well. "Well, Eden, we'd love to have you join us this summer, if you think the position is one you'd like."

Eden nodded. Okay. He seemed like a professional bloke...so Eden wasn't worried about him forgetting or anything. She brushed some of her dark hair from her forehead and tucked it behind her ears, peering at him soooo curiously.

"How many staffers are there?" she asked, just out of her own whimsical curiosity. Were any of them MEAN??? she wanted to ask, but she didn't. Because that wasn't very ADULT, was it? And plus, she could handle some.....mean persons. Some.

She fixed her gaze on him for a second....

Wait...

HAD HE JUST DECIDED? LIKE JUST THEN? THAT SHE HAD IT?!?!?!? Eden could have died happily RIGHT THEN AND THERE--but she just broke out into a HUGE smile, showing aaaallllll of her pearly whites. "Really!!!!?!?!?!?" she jumped up and shrieked in JOY. "OF COURSE I WOULD!" she cried, suddenly slipping next to him and hugging him quickly--Merlin--HUGGING A STRANGER, PLS, EDEN.

But she couldn't HELP it. She was just SO SO SO happy!

Tiberius was trying to tally the number of staff, counting a bit on his fingers "Well, three of us live on the grounds..." he offered, still trying to pin down a number. "I suppose all told, maybe 30 or so if you count people who are part time or seasonal..."

Was that accurate? There were the volunteers too, who helped maintain some of the walking paths or ran programs for kids or any number of things... Tiberius was still thinking about it as he offered her the position and he wasn't exactly prepared for her shriek and the sudden hug. He had to laugh as he patted her back. "Well, ok then, I'll take that as a yes."

Right. That was enough of the hugging. She was.. going to let go, right?

Eden was just SOOO delighted. SO DELIGHTED. She did let go of him, and pull away, but she was smiling just SO SO SO much. She would have to send her MAM a letter...and IWIN...and EMMALEE and EVERYONE ELSE--and she' could tell CLARA and COLE and PHE and CUTHBERT and ugh! They'd all be so proud of her...

And for once, Eden felt like she was...worth something? She had done this all on her own. She had worked hard, applied for this, owled the guy ALL ON HER OWN. She'd done all of the work in getting that license for Drago--and she'd studied for here OWLs...HARD. She just felt...so accomplished. And super adult. And PROUD. She was PROUD.

"Thank you, sir! Thank you so much!" she said excitedly. "Thank you for coming all this way to meet with me and--I promise I will NOT disappoint you this summer--"
