Default King's Cross Station


Clean and sleek, King's Cross Station is one of the main train stations that serves both Muggles and wizardkind. The interior of the London station is exactly what you would expect. Within the Western Concourse are a variety of shops and restaurants (various clothing chains and coffee shops, a ready-made sandwich place, and a small market), so there is no need to leave the station without grabbing any last-minute necessities or a bite to eat. Just make you are using Muggle money when purchasing items, and definitely do not whip your wand out.

Magically concealed between Platforms 9 and 10, Platform 9¾ is famously known for housing the Hogwarts Express and taking students to and from school in September and June. As you walk buy, the occasional Muggle will turn their head but will think nothing of it. If you're departing for school, walk through the barrier, say goodbye to your family, and board the train -- it leaves at 11 AM sharp! If you're arriving from school, wait your turn to leave the platform so that the Muggles don't get too suspicious of there being an influx of people departing the station.

Platform 9¾ isn't the only wizarding platform available, however. In between Platforms 7 and 8 lies Platform 7½, which is used to transport wizards and witches to magical villages scattered throughout continental Europe. There are, of course, other platforms, though they are typically opened on an as-required-basis for one-off events that lure large masses of people into London.

OOC: In addition to the Muggle areas of King's Cross, character interactions on the wizarding train platforms can be posted here.

Alex had insisted on arriving early to station to await the arrival of the Scarlet Train, where it felt like only yesterday he was here watching it depart. How had Carsyn and Carys survived their first year? Did they make friends? Did they meet people from Woboldos? All he knew was that they had been separated by the sorting hat and the details him and Rhiannon had been receiving over the past ten months seemed vague. At Christmas, they had seemed to be in good physical condition but they surprisingly hadn't said much ... What was up with Hogwarts, who knew? But it was always a second home and he wouldn't have it any other way then sending their girls to Scotland.

He glanced around the station, while he waited, eventually taking a seat on a nearby bench. Hopefully it wouldn't be too much longer.

She had never realized what it was like having the girls away from home for so long. It had been an odd feeling, especially coupled with the reminders that her own parents hadn’t been there to miss her. Those memories had been hitting Rhiannon more as of late, and the twins’ visit back home for the holidays hadn’t exactly made her feel much better. Physically, they had looked perfectly fine. Amazing, even, considering she’d known Carys had dealt with the disappointment of not being selected for the Quidditch team. It was the fact there hadn’t been many letters after that one that had made her feel like her daughters weren’t entirely okay with whatever was happening in Scotland.

She had gone to her gallery the morning of the day the train was returning, having a painting she needed to finish in time to be sent to the buyer. Therefore, it had been some time after she knew Alex had arrived when she’d ran into the station, expecting to find that she was late. It wouldn’t have surprised her, given she often lost track of time while she was in her studio. But it appeared she wasn’t.

“They aren’t here yet?,” she asked softly, taking the seat next to him.

Both girls had been disappointed in not being selected for the Quidditch Team. But it only meant he was going to have to employ some Rose Family tactics this summer in training.

Alex glanced over when his blond wife took a seat next to him and simply shook his head. "Nah. I don't think they're actually due to arrive for another thirty minutes or so." He was just ridiculously early. "Did you get your painting done?" He assumed so since she was here but maybe she just needed a change in scenery to help draw motivation from in finishing it.

The question hadn’t necessarily been anything but rhetoric. It was rather obvious that the train hadn’t arrived yet, but Rhiannon had asked it anyway. Mostly just to gauge the direction her husband’s thoughts had been going in. Odds were it hadn’t been anything different than her own, which had been why she hadn’t been extraordinarily later than he had been to the station. “So you’ve just been sitting here staring off into space,” she replied with a smile. Hopefully none of the Muggles had thought anything odd was going on, not that they weren’t used to somewhat blending in. They weren’t always in the Wizarding world after all, even if her studio was.

“Mostly. I have a few small details to finish but I was having trouble focusing,” she admitted, not afraid in the least of what the confession might look like. She’d been concerned by the lack of real news, after all. Not knowing was sometimes scarier than the alternative, honestly, and when it came to Hogwarts that was exponential.

Mary was so nervous. She had never seen the Wizarding World until a few days ago, and it was amazing. She had heard about it from her siblings, but her wizarding dad had been too far away to take her or her siblings into Diagon Alley until they got their Hogwarts letters.

She was wearing her full Hogwarts uniform, other than the robes and hat, holding her trunk and a cat basket. The young Siamese Cat was sleeping as she walked into the wall and found herself on Platform 9 and 3/4, but woke up to the sounds and smells of the gleaming scarlet train. She stroked the cat gently as she pulled out her robe, hat and a book, then put the trunk into the luggage compartment.

Tessa's mother was a hero. If it wasn't for her, the Roberts siblings would definitely be at least three hours late for the train. Punctuality wasn't their strong point. Well, it wasn't Tessa's strong point, at least. As it was, her mum had made sure they were plenty early and they had now been waiting on Platform 9¾ for what felt like an eternity.

Tessa leant against a wall, looking around for any sign of Alfie or Soraya or any of her friends. Ellie was with Ezra and their parents and Levi was Merlin knows where. Despite all the waiting, she was SO excited for this term. Compared to last year, it was bound to be heaven. How could it not be? And Tessa's OWL grades? Ah, she could just SING.

no.
No.
No.
NO.

NO.
NO.

They’d lied. They’d said they were only going along to see Finley and Nikolai off for the semester. /they’d said/ they’d go for ice cream after. There was to be no ice cream. Aiden Belfort was pulling from his jacket pocket a trunk with Maxie’s initials stitched in. The 12-year-old could feel all the blood in his body like lead holding him stock still and in place.

No.
NO.
It was his birthday and they’d lied to him.
Maxie desperately looked up to his mother Clarissa, but she only offered him a small, sad smile.
“Well. You’re all set, m’boy.” Aiden said, his lips cracking into a grudging grimace meant to pass for a smile.
“I-I’m not g-going there. I’m not. I-I’m not.” Maxie felt the words leave his mouth but hardly knew the hoarse, angry voice which said them. His fists, clenched by his sides, were trembling.
“Sorry, but you are. I think it’s time, and your mother agrees and Damien agrees, and Barton most certainly does, and- “
“I hate you! I hate you all!!” Maxie yelled, his steady voice cutting through whatever lecture Aiden had prepared. Shocked, Aiden and Clarissa paled. Maxie, their youngest and sweetest child had never said a harmful word in his whole life - and here he was, screaming at them in the middle of platform 9 3/4. Suddenly, Aiden wondered if this had, in fact, been the best course of action.

“Darling... “ his mother began tentatively, her pale hand reaching out and taking ahold of her son’s shoulder. Maxie nearly sank under the weight of her touch, and almost immediately his eyes began to water. Red boiling anger was nothing compared to the waves of betrayal beating hard in his chest.

“It’s my birthday.” quiet. so quiet Maxie would later wonder if he had spoken the words at all or merely thought them.

“This isn’t a punishment. It’s an opportunity. You’ll grow there and make friends... and before you know it Christmas break will be here and you’ll be home again.” Her tones, soothing and warm, did little to break Maxie’s pain. With a sniffle, red faced little Max brushed off his mother’s comforting hand, took up his trunk and without looking at ether of his parents began his way to the looming scarlet engine.

Aiden pulled out from his pocket a licorice wand he had intended on giving his son as a joke, and chewed coolly on it. unspeaking, Clarissa looked from her husband to the fading form of their youngest child with her shoulders slumped and an expression inscrutable.
If you had seen them, you might have said they looked like two scolded children.

Clarissa was the first to gather herself. With a deep sigh the blonde witch turned from the Hogwarts Express and began the long walk back through the station-

But a voice, clear and loud stopped her dead in her tracks.

“WAIT.”
It was Maxie. He had left behind the trunk and was running full blast back, his face red and his arms flailing. Aiden dropped the licorice wand and bounded forward to meet Maxie - a fear, irrational and honest bubbling in his chest - before Clarissa had even begun to move. An embrace, sniffling and warm. Maxie with his face buried in his father’s chest.
“I-I-I don’t h-h-hate y-you.” Muffled, anxious. Aiden rubbed Maxie’s back. A sob was heard and ignored.
“It’s alright. It’s alright.” Aiden, a man of many words and little substance, shushed and rubbed until Maxie’s shaking abided.
“You’re alright, Maximilian. You’re alright.”

Maxie pulled away first, rubbing his red-rimmed eyes with the back of his curled fist. He avoided the eyes of his father, ashamed even as he nodded his angular head. “I... I’m alright.” He echoed. “But .. I don’t have a wand..” he whispered, a sudden gut reminder. Aiden grinned sheepishly in return.
“Yeah, you do. Look in your trunk. The top bit with the lion head. You’ll see.” It was meant to be reassuring. It wasn’t. Max sniffled again, finally setting his water-eyes on his mother who couldn’t possibly be any closer. She looked sad, and quiet and kind of... happy too. Maxie didn’t understand it but he reached out for her and hugged her tightly, an hug Clarissa gave just as tightly.

The train, impatient, whistled for attention.
The Anderson-Belfort’s jumped in unison, and Max - though reluctant - let go of his mother and with a last sniffle and a promise to write he ran off to catch the train.

Despite all the waiting, she was SO excited for this term. Compared to last year, it was bound to be heaven. How could it not be? And Tessa's OWL grades? Ah, she could just SING.


Eleanor had been with her parents and Ezra and Levi until she'd realised that Tessa wasn't there anymore. It was so sad, she'd always thought she and Tessa were a single unit right up to the point Tessa got her Hogwarts letter and she didn't. Ellie had wailed for days, written the headmaster begging him to let her start with her sister, but it was all in vain.

And the year she'd finally been allowed to start, surely things would go back to normal? Well, they mostly did, but Tessa had friends now who weren't Ellie, and Ellie made friends pretty quickly too who weren't her sister. And the only time they really spent all day with each other now was in the summer. And that was over now, and Eleanor Roberts wasn't sure if she was happy or if she was sad that she wouldn't be able to raid her sister's closet for pretty things as often. Or that Tessa wouldn't bounce on the bed to wake her up.

It was always worst in September. September had always been her least favourite month, because it meant she'd miss her big sister.

But, y'know. Eleanor was a big girl. She could handle this. So slipping her arms around Tessa from behind, she leaned her chin on her sister's shoulder. She'd probably not admit it but lording her newfound height over her older (but now shorter) sister was way more fun than mum would be happy about. "Ready for the new yeaaaaaaar?"

Her voice was cheery, eyes fixed on the train in front of them. As soon as Tessa's friends arrived, she'd have to probably be a little less clingy, a little more cool~ despite the fact that her favourite subject was history, and she knitted, and she was a cat lady, and there were very few cool things about that.
