Default Carnival Stalls & Vendors


Scattered on both sides of the main stage are the carnival's biggest money makers. The stalls and vendors. The lights, bells and whistles from each stall seem to mesh together, drowning out the sounds of the petting zoo nearby, but maybe not the smell? There's hoopla, coconut shy, weight guessing, pinball racing, and of course the infamous test your strength stalls, just to name a few, all with a magical twist. For those who'd prefer a moving picture as a keepsake to the mini stuffed animal they won as a consolation prize, there's faceless standees: humorous cardboard cutouts that come in pairs or groups of three in various sizes. The photographer stands ready to snap your silly photos and greedily accept your money.

For those who'd rather not waste their time with frivolous games, and just want the big prize, there are vendors just for selling merchandise, though they do cost a pretty sickle. While there are a few vendors selling various confectioneries intended to rot your teeth to the core, both magical and mundane, many are selling knickknacks. Some vendors sell questionable jewelry and pretty trinkets, along with glowworm sticks. Others have oversized and miniature wizard hats, sunglasses intermixed with the large stuffed animals and magical balloons. And then there are those that sell magical firecrackers that the carnies suggest waiting to set off until you get home. They may have been rumored to have sent wizards to Mungo's for minor burns, but what do the carnies care? It's not as if they're liable for any of you lot.

The carnies aren't the only ones attempting to sell items. A few of the vendors belong to your local shopkeepers attempting to sell items such as sparkler wands and glow in the dark wand holsters.

Wander around with your friends, and have fun! Just don't get a bad case of sticky fingers.
OOC: Feel free to interact with the Carnival Stalls & Vendors wandering Carnie, Slick Gibbins (Anna Banana), chat, play and win a prize!

Remember that Snitchseeker site rules and the Diagon Alley Rules apply at all times. If you have any questions, you can ask them in the Diagon Alley Questions thread.

Raven Victoria Sloan
First Year

Raven and her parents, Michael and Victoria Sloan, had just finished a nice dinner of fish and chips and mandrake root tea at the Carnival food stall and heard a bit of music from a one man band. They were having a great day. Her parents were finally warming up to the idea that she was a witch and was going to Hogwarts all by herself. They rode on the carousel together and they were staying at the leaky couldron. They still hadn't gotten all of her school supplies and they were staying in Diagon Alley until the train came. They were from America and her parents were both professors at a public university in Virginia. They were taking a leave of absence to study some cave paintings in France but were taking off a month to see Raven off for her first year of Hogwarts. They began to wander around the market stalls of the carnival and were looking for some school supplies.
Raven said...
"At least if we got it here we wouldn't have to look for it later."
She didn't know where to look though. So they just started wandering around.

Shopping on Diagon Alley was rapidly becoming one of Ari's favourite times of the year. This time, her attention was grabbed by the newest addition to the old street: a carnival! She had been to a Muggle one years ago, but the girl had the feeling that this would be way more interesting. On the other hand, Ariadne was a little overwhelmed by the noise, the large number of attractions and the huge crowds. If only she had her mother around to help her find her way around! But unfortunately, the woman was withdrawing some money from Gringotts at the time.

Eventually, after a long while struggling to decide where to start, Ari went to look at some jewelry stands in front of her, wondering if the objects were veritable. Her mother did promise her a great birthday gift of her choice, but she'd better choose wisely. But the prospect of receiving a gift wasn't the only thing which prompted Ari's uncharacteristic enthusiasm; she was even more excited about the possibility of seeing some of her friends on Diagon Alley or even make new ones.

This was a carnival. A carnival! In diagon alley! Emily could barley contain her excitment as she took it all in. She'd been to a muggle one years ago, but this was something else.

She still had a lot of birthday money left over and being her she first went over to the stalls. She ran forward and accidently bumped into another girl.
"Oh, sorry!" she said turning to face the girl. Why did she always do that?

This place was noisy! Mordred winced at the lights, the people, the chaos and all the stuff that was going on around him. A balloon man, a mime, a contortionist..."What is this place?" he asked Rose who was still dragging him around as he looked around him. Mordred and his family toured almost every country there is, but never got the chance to attend an event such as a carnival. His curiosity got the best of him, and wanted to try this new custom. He looked at Rose who seem to be very familiar with the place. "Do you always go to carnivals? When you are with your family?" he asked.

Now walking side by side with Rose, he thought he saw a familiar face. He gestured to Rose to follow him and made their way to one of the stalls. Smiling, he tapped her shoulder and waved at his friend whom he met back at Scribbulus. "Hello!" he smiled, hoping she still remembers him.

"Rose, this is Ariadne. I'm sure you've met since the two of you are from the same house." he said as he looked at both girls. "How was your summer Ari?" he asked.

'It's a carnival! Yes, they have one every year where we live... I love them... We go every year' Rose grinned.

'Oh, hey Ari! Yeah, we've met before, mutual friends of Gwen!' Rose laughed.

"What exactly should we be doing here?" he asked as he looked around at the people. He's not even sure anymore if the people were from the wizarding world. Good thing though, he was wearing muggle clothes; he was able to blend in. He fixed his wand under the sleeve of his shirt just to make sure it won't fall off. He can't afford to lose his wand in that place.

"Maybe you should shop for birthday gifts here." he suggested as he scanned the area. Candies, Stuffed Toys, Jewelries, Hats...everything was in this place. Too bad he doesn't have anyone to buy stuff for. He already bought Aurora a birthday present from Egypt. His cousins brought home loads of souvenirs, as well as his parents.

As he turned around, a very tall man passed over them. Seeing that he was on stilts, he whispered to Rose; "That man's been drinking Skele-Gro 24/7." with a straight face.

'Just having fun!' Rose laughed. 'Look at the mime? I mimed with him, and I got bowed to, as I was good, somehow...' Rose laughed.

'No, just try not to look up. Learnt THAT the hard way!' Rose giggled. 'Yeah, the twins'll get annoyed if I don't get 'em anything...' Rose sighed.

Angry at first when someone bumped into her (honestly, why was it so difficult for some people to watch where they were going?!), Ari frowned, but then she remembered that she herself was sometimes bumping into people. Ooops...'No problem.' the Gryffie said, eventually. 'Are you all right? Perhaps something at these stands distracted you?' Ariadne suggested.'There are so many things here, I don't even know where to start!' the girl confessed, with a hint of exasperation in her tone, hoping the girl would help her with orientation.


'You go to Hogwarts, right? You do seem familiar, are you by any chance in Gryffindor?' Ariadne asked, associating the face with places where she had seen it before.

DIFFERENT TIMELINE

They were friends and she had missed him during the summer, but she remembered his expression of sheer agony during the 'Hug a Slytherin Day'. The memory made her chuckle.

Nodding for confirmation, Ari smiled at Rose, whom she had indeed met at school. 'My summer was lovely, I went to Wales with my mum, and then I had a few friends over at our place.' she replied. 'How was yours? Did you just get here, on Diagon Alley?' Ari wanted to know. 'What do you think of this carnival?' the girl asked, unsure about her own opinion.

'Hi, Rose!' Ariadne greeted with a smile. 'Mutual friends of Gwen and fellow William-haters.' she laughed, unable to figure out why she didn't like William. Maybe just because her other friends disliked him as well. 'Did you see anything interesting at the carnival?' she asked Rose, who seemed to have been the one to drag Mordred there.

Oh please don't be angry. She did not like to make people angry! But... she said it was no problem. Good. She didn't want someone getting mad at her.
"I'm fine. I really am sorry though. I'm always bumping into things." It was true. She was so clumbsy. "These stalls look amazing." she agreed noticing the girls tone. "I like the look of the hoopla..."

"Yeah I am!" she said, smiling that someone actually sort of recognized her. "I'm Emily. Your in Gryffindor too right?" she asked holding out her hand to shake.

'Bumping into people can be a way of making friends. At least, that's how I met Nika, last year. Maybe you know her, she's in Gryffindor too.' Ariadne continued talking in a much kinder tone. 'Everything here seems interesting, but I wonder if the merchandise is any good. I can choose anything I like as a birthday present but I'm afraid everything here is low quality, though extremely entertaining.' the girl said, mature over her years, as usual.

'Yes, proud Gryffindor as well. Pleased to meet you, Emily. I'm Ariadne Marchbanks, or Ari, for short.' the girl introduced herself, shaking her housemate's hand. 'What year are you in?' Ariadne wondered, unable to venture a guess.

Ari laughed along with Rose. 'Do we still hate William? You must let me know as soon as circumstances change.' she told her housemate, highly amused. 'Do you know your way around? This place confuses me, I need some directions.' she said, this time seriously. 'Don't scare him, now he'll definitely back away!' the girl told Rose, genuinely worried.

"Oh, um yeah I know her. We are... were good friends..." Emily still didn't want to think about the fight they were in. She'd messed up the best friendship she'd ever had and now she just wanted to forget it.
"Yeah very interesting." she said trying to get back into her usual cheerful self. "Cool glowworm sticks!" she picked on up. She was not very mature for her age. "I really want to buy some more sweets, but my parents waarned me not to. They're sick of having to take me to the dentist!" Sweets were just so damn tasty! Especially carnival food!

"Nice to meet you too!" she smiled at Ariadne. "I'm going into my third year." Though she didn't look 13. She hated being so short. "What about you?"

Ariadne realized something must have happened between Emily and Nika, but avoided the subject, trying to be diplomatic. Anyway, it was a bad idea to discuss such matters with people you've just met. Ari was quite sure Emily wouldn't like to confess her problems to her right now.

Sweets! Ari could totally relate to having a sweet tooth. 'I adore sweets too! I eat lots of chocolate, but my mum uses a charm on my teeth to keep them healthy. I've never been to the dentist.' the girl admitted, thinking Emily might be Muggleborn but unwilling to ask her if that was right.

'One year younger than you, then. I'm going into my second year, happy that I'm done being amongst the youngest students.' she replied, thinking how lost and clueless she had felt on her first days at Hogwarts. 'Do you think they've changed the weird Ministry Professors this year? I don't think I can take anymore of Shaw.' the girl sighed, hoping he was, indeed, replaced.

'Do you think they've changed the weird Ministry Professors this year? I don't think I can take anymore of Shaw.' the girl sighed, hoping he was, indeed, replaced.
"Oh my sister offered to do that charm on me, but my parents don't like magic in the house." She didn't really want to get into the whole 'half-blood' and 'adoptive muggle parents' thing. Especially with someone she'd just met. She'd just let Ari thing she was muggle-born for the time being.

"So did you have a good first year?" she asked. She could remember hers like it was yesterday. The excitment, the nervousness, meeting new people. She smiled. "Oh I don't think they're back this year. I hope not anyway. Shaw with his chainsaw was just plain scary!" She'd dreaded his classes all year. And the ministry had hired him?

Ellie had been eyeing the different stalls and things for a while, but she finally decided to go over and take a look at all the little trinkets. Walking down the row of stalls, she found a table that she liked. It was covered in a bunch of different kinds of jewelry and pretty things. Whether they were actually real, Ellie had no idea, but they probably cost far too much. But, that's how these people made their money. Cheap stuff at an extremely high price.

Ah. The stalls! Kana was a pro at these, even from a young age. Of course, if you thought MUGGLES fixed the games, imagine what could be done with magic! But they surely must know better than to go overboard. Anyone walking by who knew what they were doing could counter those spells...right?

Being summer, Kana could not wear her usual black hoodie. That plus the heat meant Kit was not with her this time, as she had been during her first year shopping. Kannalynne wore a black tee-shirt that left her pale arms exposed, much to her discomfort, and dark skinny jeans. She would wear a tee-shirt, but she would NOT wear shorts or a skirt, or even capris. NO. On her feet were the usual black tennis shoes. The only thing about the girl that wasn't monochrome was her air, which had been dyed a bright neon red.

She mozied along slowly. The trick was to look uninterested, and they, desperate for customers and money, would come to YOU. That's just how it worked. So she folded her arms and walked forward aimlessly, giving only a passing glance to the most eye-catching stalls. For a 12-year-old, she knew how the world worked. In the back of her mind, she was remembering the stalls she genuinely wanted to try.

This carnival was sooooo huuuge,it as really amazing.The blonde definitely needed someone that came back with her to go on all the fun rides.Doing it alone was only half as fun.Making her way to the stalls and vendors,the first thing that she noticed was this table with all the beautiful jewelry on it.Noo waaay the slytherin coould not take a look at them.

Approaching the girl saw another one standing there and a wide smile crept on her face as she recognized her."Elllieeee",the blonde waved as she was within hearing distance,"heeeeyy youu."They hadnt met up in ages,they totally should hang out waaay more often.Seriously.

"Hmm. There are so many things to choose from." he said scanning the stalls above their heads. He was really bad at picking up gifts.

Awkward. He suddenly felt he's too tall for his age.

They were friends and she had missed him during the summer, but she remembered his expression of sheer agony during the 'Hug a Slytherin Day'. The memory made her chuckle.
"A hug? Did she just...?" he thought with shock. "Heck, everyone's doing hugs." he thought. And he wasn't even sure how it felt to be hugged. His parents rarely give it to him -- being busy aurors and all that. They don't have much time for him, even if he's at home during summers. Not having any idea on how to do it, Mordred blushed and nodded to her. And as he waited for her to execute it, he took a breath hoping he won't faint. That will be just embarrassing.

"How was it?" he asked. "We went to Egypt this year, and we just arrived yesterday. It was a great place! I'd like to go back there soon." he beamed at the idea. He missed the place; except the heat. "Yes, well my mum and our house elf's getting my school supply. I really don't like to shop. Not my thing." he said shaking his head.

Mordred looked around him some more, "This place is a bit...weird. Chaotic, even. But I'd like to explore it more. I believe this to be a muggle tradition?" he asked. He didn't expect to immerse himself in such customs, but he's slowly realizing that he must have missed out on a lot of fun, mainly because he's trapped inside an old (and boring) wizarding world.

And if he wanted to become an Auror one day, he believes he needs such immersion to understand fully his future duty.

Maybe just because her other friends disliked him as well. 'Did you see anything interesting at the carnival?' she asked Rose, who seemed to have been the one to drag Mordred there.

"Wait." he said holding up a hand. "You hate that boy?" he said trying to remember his face. "What did he do to the both of you? And who's Gwen?" he believes he hasn't met her yet.

Mordred frowned at Rose. "Hey. It's not 'Hug a Slytherin Day' today. And if they plan on doing that in school again-- I'll make sure to lock myself in the Room of Requirements." he said as he does not want to have multiple mini heart-attacks in one day. Oh, the paranoia.

Delilah Moretti was not USUALLY one to spend an afternoon off of work at a carnival, but well, there she was. It was actually rather large and impressive, so she supposed it was alright.

Casting her dark eyes in the direction of the man who was walking with her, Delilah raised an eyebrow, "Are you going to win me a prize?" Wasn't that kind of his JOB, being her boyfriend and all? She was expectant.

Swinging their interlocked hands to and fro, Robbie grinned over at Delilah and puffed out his chest. "O'course I will, m'lady! That's what boyfriends do."

He cast his eyes about for a stall with a great big stuffed monkey for a prize... or at least one that had a game he could surely win. "Will you buy me a cotton candy if I win you something?"

PUHLEEEEZ?

Nikolas was excited by this carnival here in Diagon Alley! It was simply AWESOME! nothing interesting had happened this morning until he find out this. He walked beside the stalls, looking at everything, he should win a prize... for who? for HIM! Oh yes. This was the best part of being half-and-half, he knew a lot of things more than all this young wizards and witches about muggles which they would find out amazing, even more than this carnival and also he had the wizarding world which was even MORE amazing. He definitely was lucky. Now let's see what to do here.

"Oh? Is THAT what boyfriends are for? I was beginning to wonder why I keep you around." Har. Har. Delilah smirked her smirkiest smirk, "Only if you share."

She tugged on his hand to bring him closer so that she could whisper into his ear, "Better watch out for these carnies, I hear they're not very trust worthy folk." And, Delilah was suspicious.

"Ha ha ha," Robbie fake-laughed at Delilah and stuck out his tongue. "I dunno, I kinda thought I made a good arm trophy. Cause I'm such a studmuffin and all."

Yes, Robbie did just call himself a studmuffin. He almost giggled at her whispering and gave her hand a squeeze. "Don't worry, dear, I'll protect you from those pick pockets."

That was another part of a boyfriend's job.
