Who: Aviya Reppyi
What: Shopping, Open Thread
When: Sun Aug 30
Where: From Gringotts Wizarding Bank to The Magical Menagerie
Rating: SFW
Status: Incomplete

Aviya put the coin purse in her purse with a sigh. This whole exchange thing was driving her up a wall. Having to calculate from pounds to gold and back gave her a headache. Mostly because she never did all that good at math. She just hoped her calculator would help. She slung her purse over her shoulder and moved down the street. It was still relatively quiet, which she was grateful for. She never did like the throng of people that used to swarm the place. Even when they'd been allowed out she'd preferred to stay inside. Crowds where never her thing.

She regretted not bringing a coat, it was a bit chilly out. She wouldn't be here long, and if anything after she'd gotten everything she could hide in one of the resteraunts and warm up. She smiled to herself as she continued to move, her eyes moving from place to place. Even after so long, the difference of this world still stunned her. She paused then, noticing something off. Out of place, you could say. She noticed a piece of paper in a flowerpot. Knowing most shopkeeps kept their property fairly clean she decided to check it out. Maybe it was a coupon. She took the paper out and turned it around, frowning to the message "Apples? What?"

It confused her, but she shrugged and put it in her purse. Maybe someone at work would know more. Or it was a prank. You never knew.

Who: Narcissa Malfoy and Todd Yaxley.
What: Surprise visit for some cheesecake.
Where: Malfoy Manor, I assume.
When: At about midnight.
Rating: SFW?

Boredom; Todd dealt with it rather badly, and always had. To someone who always had traveled and left behind city after city, being forced to stay into hiding was scarily close to pure torment. And that made him reckless, to a degree.

He wasn't entirely certain if Narcissa knew that he was out. The chance that she would hex him within an inch of his life upon discovering that he was in her kitchen, peeking into the cupboards for leftovers and his favorite dessert, was a very real one. But he liked to believe that he was permitted to do so, as long as he'd covered his tracks.

"Where does she stash the oh so delicious snacks of sin?" He wondered as he carefully closed yet another door of a kitchen cabinet, and moved to another. "She's a woman, she's got to have comfort food somewhere."

Slips of paper...

Random slips of paper about the size of receipts begin appearing around Diagon and other wizarding places around Britain. On tables, benches, in flower pots, store displays and even in the cracks in walls, just seemingly randomly place. A single sentence is on the slips.

Who'd have thought it'd be apples this time?


Who: Michael and Aveline
What: Meeting for coffee
Where: A coffee shop in Diagon Alley
When: Sunday afternoon (backdated)
Rating: SFW... unless Aveline gets really explicit with her request

Michael was feeling a little better about, well... life in general after talking to Roger and getting good and drunk. Still, he didn't tell his family where he was going this afternoon. They were used to him going out to meet girls, but he was sure that at least one of them would be able to tell he was hiding something from them, and he really didn't want them to know about this. Though it could have been worse; she could have been Muggle-born, or a Muggle, which was about the same in his father's eyes. But getting a pureblood girl knocked up wasn't all that much better.

With a sigh, he Apparated straight out of his room to the Leaky Cauldron, then used the secret exit to get into Diagon Alley. There was a light drizzle, so he cast an impervius charm for the walk down to the shop. He looked around at the sparsely-attended shop and saw that he was the first one there. He took a table near the window so she'd be able to find him easily. A waitress came to ask for his order. "Not yet," he told her. "I'm waiting for someone." She nodded and walked off. He rested his elbows on the table, wondering what Aveline could possibly want to talk about. Maybe she'd changed her mind about wanting help, or money. Well, he'd just have to wait and find out.

London August 5 - Two more Death Eaters are behind bars this hour, according to Ministry spokesperson Alan Lordsden. Aquila Irvine, wife of previously captured Corvus Irvine, and another unnamed Death Eater were captured just outside of Brixton, South London. '

The unnamed Death Eater is rumoured to be the brother of famous Death Eater James Selwyn, Corrigan Selwyn.

Further details of the capture have not been released and we will update you with any comments or information coming from the Ministry.

So what's going on? (Open to Michael)

Who: Roger and Michael
What: Have a drinking session. Roger finds out Michael's life's taken a surprising turn.
When: Wednesday evening
Where: The Piper's Kilt, a pub in Blackpool, not far from Roger's. [Michael can crash there is he's too wasted to Apparate or Floo]
Rating: PG-13 for drinking and likely swearing.

So you're going to be a what? )


A second job! [Bianca & Aveline]

Who: Bianca and Aveline
What: Bianca gets her new job working at Aveline's shop
When: Wednesday afternoon
Where: Au Clair de Lune, Aveline's chocolaterie.
Rating: PG, I expect.

She liked the idea of working in the shop, even if she wasn't going to be working with the sweets. )

Who: Dean and open! (Narcissa or Todd?)
What: Dean is doing portraits. Or caricatures.
When: Sunday evening
Where: Diagon Alley
Rating: PG-ish, depending on how angry the subject of the caricature gets about it...

Dean had been having a good day--a lucrative one. He'd set himself up, with his easel and his wall of samples, a ways down the road, near Weasley's Wizard Wheezes. He figured that the sort of person who went down that way was also the sort of person who would enjoy a caricature, and so far his guess had paid off. Of course, it also helped that one of the escaped Death Eaters had recently been captured, and the mood of the shoppers had lightened.

It was for that reason that he was still out there, even as the sun lowered toward the horizon. He knew he should head home--who knew what the numbers of still-at-large Death Eaters were like--but there were still shoppers on the street, and still a chance to profit from one of the things he loved. He offered passers-by hopeful, friendly smiles, his pencil poised.

For immediate release!

by Evette O'Rourke

London July 26 - In these long weeks, we've anxiously awaited news of the breakout. Updates were scarce, but our ministry was on the job! Just this hour, it was announced that a capture had been made by the Ministry's Aurors.

Corvus Irvine, distantly related to the (in)famous Black family, was captured en route to his family home in Derby and has now been returned to his cell in Azkaban. The capture was described as a "great relief" by our Minister, Kingsley Shacklebolt.

The Minister said he "kept faith" in the Aurors and everyone should rest assured that "the remaining escapees will be back behind bars shortly."

Rating: PG, I assume.

While Aurors hurried about trying to find escaped Death Eaters, Blaise did his best to keep Draco's location a secret. )

Who: Dean and open
What: Coffee break!
When: Monday afternoon
Where: Ministry of Magic
Rating: G

The Department of Magical Games and Sports was not very busy lately. There were no major tournaments for a few more months, and no recent trade laws had come down affecting sports equipment. It was a small department, but lately it seemed smaller than usual. Normally, Dean spent the times when he didn't have anything to do either sketching or chatting with the others in the department (usually some good-natured arguing about Quidditch teams), but today he was feeling restless. It bothered him that they weren't hearing anything--still--about the breakouts from Akzaban, and he just wanted to stretch his legs.

So he headed down to the Atrium to get a cup of coffee. On the way there he greeted a number of people, there was some quiet as he walked down the long hall, and then he arrived at the coffee kiosk, where several people were gathered. "Hey, how's it going?" he greeted the nearest as he got his cup of coffee.
