Welcome to Potter's Army

We have been a Harry Potter Roleplaying site since 2007. If you're an old member we hope you come check out the discord link provided below. And if you're looking for a new roleplaying site, well, we're a little inactive. But every once and a while nostalgia sets in and a few of our alumni members will revisit the old stomping grounds and post together. Remember to stay safe out there. And please feel free to drop a line whenever!

What’s Happening?
Since every few months or so a few of our old members get the inspiration to revisit their old stomping grounds we have decided to keep PA open as a place to revisit old threads and start new ones devoid of any serious overarching plot or setting. Take this time to start any of those really weird threads you never got to make with old friends and make them now! Just remember to come say hello in the chatbox below or in the discord. Links have been provided in the "Comings and Goings" forum as well as the welcome widget above.

"He was in the laundry hamper," Mira said. "It'll teach me to check our pockets much more carefully. I owe Fudge a huge apology, but I don't speak bowtruckle."

"I do," Simone said, coming in. "Why do you need to speak bowtruckle?" Mira related the story, and Simone nodded. "Let me try." She went over to the tree and then spoke gently for a moment with Fudge. "He accepts your apologies, and once I explained the laundry system to him, he thought it was quite funny. So you're alright again. Now, is that lunch I smell?"

"It is," Mira said. "Abbey and I made grilled cheese and tomato basil soup. It's in the dining room."

"Bless you. Edward definitely needs a bit of a break," Simone said. "I'll go tell people that lunch is on." She went out to the garden and told Ruby and Edward that lunch was ready, and that they should both come and eat. She found Kate just finishing the gardening in the kitchen garden patch. Then she went up and told Marcus. In the meantime, Mira put Abbey in her chair and gave her a grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of soup.

Ruby looked up as she placed another plant. Glancing over she smiled " oh that sounds good, I managed to make a cheese cake for desert if any one wats desert. She said wiping her hands on the cloth she ahd tucked into her belt. " but I am hungry" She moved to Edward making sure not to stand on any plants as she did " Abbys grilled cheese with tomato basil soup sounds perfect after a good day gardening, am I right?" she said as theyw alked back to the house. " do you think they reatched the mountain yet?" she asked as she entered and went to the sink to wash her hands clean of the dirt.

Now with clean hands she moved to sit at the table nodding as Kate entered and sat as she took some soup and grilled cheese. " Abby I have to say this combernation is great, well done" she said as she ate the soup. " if its okay with you I'll add it to the recipy book." she smiled at her.

"I'm starving. And to think, its just now noon, and I've put in a good seven hours already in this garden. If I work the afternoon too, I might get it all put in by supper time. And that'll be good because its supposed to rain all day tomorrow. A good soaking for new plants is just what a garden needs to get it settled in good. But right now, my stomach thinks my throat's been cut. I'm definitely going for lunch." As they went into the main house, Edward washed his hands too, and when Ruby asked about whether they've reached the mountain, Edward shook his head.

"Nah. Not yet. They've not even reached Budapest yet. When they reach Budapest, that''ll be tonight about supper time, so I think they'll stop for the night. Then, they've got another ten hours after that to get to the mountains. I'm guessing they'll start out at first light tomorrow and go as straight through as they can and as quickly as they can. If they manage that by mid afternoon, they'll get a good portion of the trek up the mountain done by nightfall. They'll probably reserve the climbing and the business at the mine for the next day and go straight back down the following day. Repelling goes faster, so they might pick up some time there if the weather holds. Then they have to travel down out of the mountains and back to Budapest. So, three days, I figure, to get up to the mine and to be able to start back down. And then another two days to get back to Budapest and back on the train. Once they're on the train, they've got 36 hours to home. If I know them at all, though, they'll try to find some short cuts wherever they can. If they find their magic works, they may try to apparate some short hops or Michael might try to make a couple portkeys. I know they're all going to be most anxious to get home."

"I like cheese sammiches," Abbey told Ruby. "Papa says Stickee no like 'em though."

"He won't eat your lovely cheese sandwiches, that's true," Simone told her with a little giggle. "But Ruby's right. It is a very lovely lunch, and we need to keep those recipes. You really are a very good little helpful in the kitchen. And I bet Ruby makes super cheesecake. I think we should have some after we finish our soup and sandwiches."

"Abbey, I have a tiny corner of my garden that doesn't have any plants. I think you should decide what I put there. What should I grow?"

"Chocolate!" Abbey said.

"Chocolate?" he laughed. "Chocolate trees won't grow around here, my sweet."

"But chocolate mint would," Simone said.

"Oh, yes," Edward said. "That would indeed."

"Whazzat?" Abbey asked.

"What's that?" Edward echoed, and she nodded. "Chocolate mint is a green plant, and the leaves taste like chocolate and peppermint. Your papa could make a wonderful tea with it, or I could make an extract with it that you could add to candy and cookies. It would be quite nice. Shall we try it, Abbey?" She nodded.

"Anyone ready for some of Ruby's cheesecake?" Simone asked.

"Me!" Abbey chimed.

"Me too," Edward said.

"And me," Kate said. "Sounds like cheesecake all around, Ruby."

Ruby listened to Edward exsplain and nodded " all right so still a long way for them to go." she said then she sat and ate her food. She chuckled as every one said they wanted cheese cake. " all right I'll get it" she stood up and brought it to the table and smiled to Abby " I added the berries for you Abby." she told her placing a slice with some berries in a bowl for her then placed it in front of her with a spoon. then dished out the rest to the others.

" well enjoy" she said and chuckled " oh edward I'll help get the rest of those plants in with you" she said then looked at Abby " and yes I'll order some chocolate minty plants for your part Abby." she hoped the tea that they could make with its leaves would be delishious.

"Oh, this is lovely, Ruby," Simone said. "Really silky. You've got a knack with cheesecake, you know. I think we should plan on having one for supper on the night our lads get home from the mountains--especially knowing how much Angus hates it there. What flavor do you think he would like?"

"Aggie likes chocolate and ornge."

"Chocolate orange?" Simone clarified. Abbey nodded. "I've never heard of a chocolate orange cheesecake."

"Angus made one up just around Valentine's Day. I bet if we looked, he's got that recipe written down somewhere."

"Aggie likes cow too," Abbey said.

"Yes, he does," Edward laughed. "His favorite food is a nice piece of beef. You're an observant little tyke, aren't you? You notice everything."

"She's spent most of her little life in this kitchen with him, and he talks to her all the time. She should know a thing or two about him," Kate said. "And about cooking."

"But we could do a nice supper--not a party--just a nice homecooked supper for them that night when they come home. They should be getting home just about supper time that night anyway," Edward said.

"If you help Edward in the garden, Ruby, Abbey and I could sort out some of those boxes of kitchen things in your place. She knows her spoons from her forks and her butter knives. She can sort out your cutlery for you while I sort out the dishes and the pots and pans," Kate said.

Ruby chuckled as they complimented her cheese cake, then Abby spoke of Angus likeing chocolate and orage now she thought. " I think I saw a recipy in one of the binders for chocolate orange cheese cake and I like that idea." she said then heard Kate and she nodded " of course I love working with the dirt and plants." she smiled as she finished her cheese cake then took her plate to the washer.

She wrote a note and sent it to the plant suplier for some chocolate mint plants. Then she moved to the back door pausing as she felt the cool air against her skin, she knew the weather on mountains would be colder , much colder. " all right you ready Edward?" she asked smiling at him as she started to walk over to the patch.

"Absolutely," Edward said.

"I'll be along in a moment," Simone said. "You two go ahead." She helped Kate and Mira clean up the lunch dishes and put the leftovers away. Then she got out three insulated mugs and filled them with ice and added some refreshing summer citrus tea to each mug and put the lids on. she took them out to the garden with her and gave one of the large mugs to Edward and one to Ruby and kept one for herself.

Kate and Mira went over to the duplex and started to unbox some of the kitchen equipment. Kate found the silverware organizer and put it down on the floor where Abby could reach it and put the box of cutlery down on the floor and showed Abbey where the spoons, the forks and the knives went in the organizer. Abbey picked up on it immediately and started sorting them out properly while Kate unpacked the plates and bowls and mugs and saucers and put them in the cabinets. Kate kept a tight watch on Abbey, but Abbey seemed like she was an old hand in the kitchen, and she impressed Kate. She could see Angus's role modeling and teaching in everything Abbey knew about the kitchen. She knew Angus doubted himself, but the more she watched Abbey, the more she saw that just by being with her, he had had a strong hand in the bright young child Abbey was becoming. She had no doubt he was going to be a great father someday.

The train crossed the border into Hungary, and Angus knew they were just a couple hours from Budapest. He packed his things so that when they pulled into the station, he was ready to get off the train and find a driver to take them to the hotel. He wanted to screw Budapest and cover as much by car as they could, but he understood why Michael believed a fresh start in the morning was a better option. They'd been on a train about long enough. They all needed to stretch their legs, get a hot shower in a roomier shower and perhaps try to find a fireplace to send a floo message home. Maybe. That made sense to Angus, if the magic worked here, and he wasn't sure about that.

Ruby paused and nodded to Simone " all right , see you in a bit" she said as together they walked over and she picked up her trowl and began to plant again now humming softly as she did and was glad after a while that Simone brought a fruity tea. " this is perfect thank you" she said standing up and taking a drink. She saw Abby and Kate enter the duplex and smiled having a feeling they would be in the kitchen help sorting the equipment.

Finishing her tea she looked at Edward " that was refeshing" she told him.

Jessie picked up his duffel and slung it over his shoulder as they pulled into the station. joining the others on the platform as he realy didn't want to be seperated from them. He realy wanted to get to the hotel and shower and relax on a non moving bed.

Angus got off the train, and Brian and Michael followed. Angus knew this station well, and he knew that from here on, he was their guide. That was his job. He found, of all unexpected things, a stretch limousine that had been stood up for its expected fare. Angus talked to the driver in Romanian, and the driver agreed to take them to the hotel for half price. And since it was a stretch limousine, there was more than enough room for them all in the same car.

Michael had made reservations in the best hotel in the city, and in the biggest suite they had, and at a ridiculous rate. Brian wanted to know how Michael had managed it, and Michael finally admitted that Marcus's connections because of his work in Bulgaria had allowed Marcus to get the best suite in the house for a heavily discounted price.

They checked in, and found it was a three bedroom suite. Two of the bedrooms each had a king sized bed. The third had two twin sized beds. There were two bathrooms that looked like they easily could have been in any muggle millionaire's home. The bellhop brought up four bottles of ice cold craft beer, promising they were amongst the best beers in Budapest. Michael had made reservations in the restaurant for 8 pm. And since it was only 6:30, they had time to all shower and shave before supper.

"The restaurant is five star but you won't need your tuxes," Michael said. "The suit coat you have on is fine. If you have laundry, leave it for the room attendant. They'll do the laundry overnight and return it clean and pressed by morning."

"I'm going to hit the shower," Angus said.

"Shower number two is up for grabs, if you want to go first, Jessie," Michael offered.

Jessie followed Brian and the others , he paused for amoment before climbing into the strech limo as it took them to the hotel. Right now all he wanted was a shower and shave. Now in the suit he saw the two beds and heard the second shower was fre " oh yes, I got dibs and who gets a King?" he asked as he moved to one and placed his bag on it then sat down as he took off his boots.

Taking out his wash bag and towels he headed to the shower " see you when Im feeling human....cleaner" he said with a chuckle as he then disapeared into the shower. He returned an hour later washed shaved and feeling like himself a towel placed around his waist and one over his shoulder as he dried and dressed in a suit trousers light cotton shirt before laying on the bed while he waited for the otehrs.
