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 locations 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.

He straightened up when the woman picked the dog up and offered her another smile, and the dog another rub behind the ears. "They're cute, though. Do they have a name?"

"Nothing to thank me for," he managed, shaking his head as amusement pulled his lips up into a smirk. She was completely right, after all - most people were too busy in their own worlds. But he was always aware of his surroundings, of the people who might be watching him. Maybe he was paranoid, but it came in handy at times like these.
A dog who was very pleased with all the attention they were receiving, tongue hanging out the side of the mouth and panting eagerly. The man even received palm through of slobbery kisses while he knelt down - something Jade was still working on with Coconut not to do to complete strangers as it was not always well received. Problem was that Coconut was a terribly affectionate creature with a particularly short attention span and memory when it came to reigning those habits in. One handler had suggested to Jade that she utilize a choke collar for training.

Jade never spoke to this person ever again. Barbarian.

"Oh," she laughed a bit while once again brushing some of her long black hair aside, she really should have tied it back more professionally. "This is Coconut, my overly affectionate and enthusiastic to a fault rescue dog." Right on cue, Coconut's ears perked up and panted all the more happily. Yes, that was their name! "And I'm Jade," she continued, finally tearing her attention away from her pup properly to look at the blonde and offer her hand for shaking. "And what can we call the hero of the hour?"

Luckily, this was a man who'd been licked my much worse than an adorable, tiny little pup. He was pretty sure that a tiger had once, or possibly just a very large dog dressed up as a tiger, but even so - this little thing had nothing on whatever that was.

"Coconut," Leander repeated with a delighted laugh. "Incredibly fitting." When she extended her hand, Leander offered an apologetic smile and raised the dog-slobber covered hand. "Whilst I'm sure you're used to it, I feel like it would strip me of my title of 'hero of the hour' to shake your hand right now," he couldn't help but joke. "And whilst I love being referred to as the hero, most people call me Leander." He added as an afterthought, running a hand through his hair before instantly regretting it, as obvious by his face.

Whilst he didn't mind an affectionate dog, slobber in his hair was not the look he was going for.

Jade's lips likewise curled into a delighted little smile, though mostly because she had a bit of an amused sort of chill running up and down her spine. The lovely thing about names was there could be multiple meanings applied to them and different origin stories. She felt confident that her reasons were different than how he interpreted the name to be fitting. "It's one of my favorite off white colors to paint walls," she offered as an explanation, feeling in a particularly good mood considering the circumstances and less frigid. "Never been a fan of the snowy white varieties, entirely too sterile and high contrast. More a color I like to use to tint colors that may be too unwelcoming." She paused a moment, purses her lips and pulls a bit of hair free that had blown into the corner of her mouth and caught on her rosy lip. "I'm an interior designer. And when I adopted Coconut...there was not a swatch nor space I did not incorporate the color somewhere."

Taking a moment to adjust her hold on Coconut, who had now decided to nuzzle their wet nose right into Jade's neck and folded themselves over Jade's shoulder, she easily committed the name to memory. Leander. "Perhaps the hero is more of a middle name anyway." Pleasantries aside, and before she could offer some of her wet wipes from her bag to take care of the cleanliness of his hand, Jade's mouth dropped open at a glacial pace while Leander instead took that same hand and combed it through his blonde hair. "...and most people don't resort to using dog slobber for hair gel," she teased not unsympathetically upon clearing her throat, now offering him some wet wipes in her outstretched hand.

"An interior designer?" Leander asked, more intrigued as the moment went on. He'd thought the name fitting because of the dogs white fur, both the colour and the fluffiness he always associated with the desiccated fruit. Jade's story, however, was even more wonderful, honestly. "You sound incredibly passionate about your work," he added - it was obvious in the fact that she'd named the companion after something related to his work.

For a second, he wondered what he would name a pet, if he ever had one. Maybe Bellini, or Botticelli, or Raphael. It didn't surprise him that the names that came to mind were related to his work, too.

"Bad habits," he managed with a slight grimace, gratefully accepting the wipes and using it to clean his hand. "Maybe this will stop me from touching my hair so often - apparently it's going to make me bald, or at least that's what my grandmother says."

Coconut received another couple of kisses and little snuggle to the side of her pup's head. Coconut, and perhaps the color swatch too, had been there through a particularly rough patch. The sort that had brought her and her sister to live together. Something which, at the time, she had not realized she needed just as much as June had. Even if now the apartment was like a rainforest jungle and the vines seemed to have a knack for ticking her off. "I am," says boldly while combing her finger through her hair. "Besides my fur babies..." And one more kiss to the top of Coconut's head. "...the only loyal companion I had for a long time."

And there was a certain level on control as well, founding her own business and building it from the ground up. From the very company policy to the end look of a space, her hand commanded it all - with input from clients where necessary, of course.

"And what about you, Leander," she inquired as she gave him another couple of wipes. Honestly, he seemed to be missing a glaring spot and she really wanted to just lean over and clean it for him. But...another couple of chances before she did that. She was attempting to reign certain personality traits in. "A hair model? Or something in Cosmetology?" It was not a serious guess, but him mentioning that he touched his hair entirely too much brought it to mind.
