RP post: Expedition to the Wizarding World

They had agreed that for Asar-Suti's second anniversary in Milliways, they'd go to Gil's world and have a nice meal, in a nice wizarding place, a few years in Gil's past, before the pestiferous Dark Lord horrid Rodolphus Lestrange served came back.

When all was peaceful and harmless and quaint, if you didn't have horns. Or were a werewolf.

Asar-Suti was wearing nice purple robes, and a dark violet hat that would look right at home there. He hoped they'd get out before anybody else here in Milliways noticed the hat, but still, if he'd gone to earth, he'd be wearing jeans or something, so the hat should be all right.

He was waiting for Gil to turn up.

Gil was, naturally, wearing brown. An open robe over a fawn peachbloom cotton shirt and brown suede trousers, and for today he had taken the trouble to be fully human with no horns in evidence.

"Don't forget the ..." he was saying as he walked across the bar and "Squeak" squeaked Ratty, assuring him that she was perfectly capable of seeing that things went smoothly.

He put her down on a table, gave her a stroke and hurried across to Sooty.

"Okay - all ready," he said.

"Ooooh, you look lovely!" Asar-Suti said when he saw Gil approach. "How did I ever deserve to go out with such a cute wizard? Shall we?"

He held out his hand, and looked towards the door.

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 09:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Gil took his hand, feeling for his wand in his thigh pocket, and smiled at him. "You look pretty pretty yourself Sooty," he said, putting his hand on the latch and lifting it. "REady to do your mojo?"

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yes," Asar-Suti said. He took Gil's hand, opened the door to where they wanted to be. There were voices out there sounding cheerful, and did it smell faintly of butterbeer?

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes it did. Gil's nostrils quivered and he grinned and stepped forward alongside his little purple god.

Home - without all the angst. This would be fun.

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 09:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Asar-Suti slung his arm lightly around Gil's shoulder, just friendliness; and they stepped into a room.

It looked like - a party? An assembly? People - wizards and witches - drinking and eating and talking. A fluttering little chocolate thing fluttered in front of Asar-Suti's nose.

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 10:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Gil snatched it from the air and frowned at it. "They stopped making these flying fortune cookies in 95," he said. "Too easy to slip something mind altering into them and let them loose to wreak havoc."

He broke the cookie and offered half to Sooty and munched his own while he read the fortune.

A moment later he was choking and thrust the paper towards sooty. "Merlin's nose hairs," he gasped. "it says to vote for fudge."

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 10:22 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh, I vote for fudge any time!" Asar-Suti said. "Especially if you make it - nice crumbly creamy fudge that melts when you look at it to long. It's an adver-thighs-ment, right?"

He ate his half of the magical fortune cookie.

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh not fudge - fudge is lovely - Fudge. Cornelius Fudge - that well meaning pen pusher promoted beyond his ability who took the Wizarding Worlkd to the brink of imbecility, that's who. What year IS this?"

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 10:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Asar-Suti looked around. "The picture of the horse back there on the wall by the entrance looks like a calendar - it says '1990'. Is that a year? Only it's made of little pieces of wood, not paper. Off things you get in your world. Why would anybody re-elect that sort of an idiot, though?"

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
"The triumph of hope over experience?" Gil said gruffly. "Ah well, let's go and feed. Honestly sooty, if anyone campaigns at me I'll be hard pressed not to swat them."

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 11:21 pm (UTC)(link)
"Feeding is good," Asar-Suti said. "Let's eat them out of their campaign budget, then this nonsense stops anyway."

He caught another fortune cookie, and broke it open. There was a picture of a grinning pin-striped man in there; he was waving in what he seemed to think a dignified manner.

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-11-30 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Gil growled and swatted another out of the air. "The problem was," he said softly, "that we weren't voting FOR Fudge, but against the other candidates. He seemed the safest - and he was a fine peace time minister - but out of his depth when things got nasty."

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 04:19 pm (UTC)(link)
"He looks like somebody suited for wearing a golden chain and making speeches while other people do the real work behind his back," Asar-Suti mused.

A door opened, and several people walked in.

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 04:39 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yep, that's the bunny," Gil said, turning his head away from the incomers in case someone there knew him. "Now, where shall we go to eat Sooty?"

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 04:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"You want to eat Sooty?" Asar-Suti said, with a big grin. "You shouldn't do that in public. Even here. Should we go eat food first? Any interesting restaurants run by foreign wizards?"

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 04:50 pm (UTC)(link)
"There's a Croatian joint at the junction of Knockturn and Critic Alley. He makes a lamb hot pot to die for only he calls it something else," Gil said, opening the door and swatting another fortune cookie as it made a bid for freedom.

Gil nodded to the little crumpled mess and said, "In 1992 a bunch of young wizards released a load of those at the Glastonbury Festival and guess what?"

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 04:54 pm (UTC)(link)
"That's a muggle music event, isn't it?" Asar-Suti said. "Everybody probably thought they had got really, really good drugs, did they?"

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 05:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Gil shrugged, his punchline would have fallen a little flat after that, and nodded.

"The Virovitica Restaurant is down there," he said pointing. "We shouldn't need a reservation."

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 05:04 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yes, but what did the muggles say about the magical fortune cookies?" Asar-Suti said, following. He hadn't expected a joke but a genuine story.

"And if we need a reservation, we an magic one into their book.

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 05:08 pm (UTC)(link)
"They were too stoned to notice," Gil said slinging his arm across Asar-Suti's shoulders.

That was acceptable - barely - two old friends walking together. Any more than that and they would have elderly wizards harrumphing and saying 'Well that sort of thing never went on in my day', the old liars.

"Actually the reservation really won't be necessary because - well, you'll see."

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 05:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Asar-Suti laughed. "Stupid muggles," he said. "You get drugs anywhere, but magic is so very rare. You'll show me what they do instead of reservations, then?"

He walked along beside Gil, looking left and right at the wizards around them. "Look at all those owls in that shop!" he marvelled. He knew they were used as messengers, but so many at once!

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 05:44 pm (UTC)(link)
"Mm, yeah," Gil said, smiling at a little Scops who scowled back and burped up a well packaged mouse. "You can buy everything the wizarding world needs along these alleys. Oh look, herbs - do you want any little plants to bring on over the winter? We could have them in our room."

[identity profile] asar-suti.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 05:46 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh yes!" Asar-Suti said. "I like the little one with the tiny heart-shaped leaves! And that one - is that a baby mandrake?"

[identity profile] gil-whimple.livejournal.com 2006-12-01 05:53 pm (UTC)(link)
"Eww yeah," Gil said, grimacing at the caged plant. "But the lovage looks healthy and the hearts-ease and loosestrife. Shall I get some and we can pick them up on the way back?"
