Summary: The Weasley Twins have done it again - Journals for All
The sign in the window said Come One Come All. Fred was down helping stock the shelves of their latest invention. An advertisement was put in the Daily Prophet giving them even more publicity for the event to end all events. George was at the front of a now growing crowd of people spilling out into Diagon Alley.
Standing on a makeshift platform, George took his wand and touched his throat and said Sonorus. His voice was then lifted above the rest. "Ello, Ello, Come one come all to the event of a lifetime. Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer with our latest invention." Fred bounded out from the back of the store and came out with a leather bound journal. "We give you the most brilliant breakthrough in ages, a place to keep your thoughts, keep up with your friends thoughts, and of course write down all those little things that you need to pick up from the Weasley Wizarding Wheezes."
Though at first they sounded confused, George could hear a rumbling of approval. "For more information the directions are written in the front of the journals." The price was a sickle a piece but he could already see the silver coming his way. Hopping down off the platform, George stuck his wand to his neck saying Quietus and slipped inside as he saw the line forming behind him.
"Jackpot" he said with a clever smirk playing on his lips. George moved to help Fred and Verity as the shop became flooded with the curious.
