Nothing exciting ever happens in Uppingham.

It was simple enough:
1. Have a Quidditch team.
2. Stay away from maybe-conspiracies possibly involving Death Eaters.
3. Do not, under any circumstances, piss off James Sirius Potter.
Unfortunately, transfer student Marley Belgarde didn’t get the memo.

"Did I just speak to Dominique Weasley in Dothraki?"
And then there's Fitz.

Gryffindor Quidditch captain, arrogance extraordinaire- and Effy Wilderson, Ravenclaw
seeker of sharp-tongued, often unnecessary wit- they did seem to spend a lot
of time together.

raw, almost fluorescent teenage magnetism

Scorpius opened his mouth, completely at a loss for words.

11 : Welcome to the LC by bigblackdog     Short story
Rating: Mature   Chapters: 4   Reviews: 39





For most wizards, the Leaky Cauldron is an institution known for strong drinks and a friendly atmosphere; a place where anyone is welcome.

For me, it’s a place where the miniscule amount of dignity you started with is bludgeoned relentlessly by the flood of miscreants that frequent it.

In simpler terms, I’m a waitress there. And maybe it's not that bad.
