Backpackers Hostel

Backpackers


Once an abandoned block of flats on the outskirts of London, the building has since been repaired, replenished and layered with charms to keep it concealed from Muggles, and now serves as a youth hostel for rejected magical youth. Open to all children and teenagers who have been shunned from their families for their magic, species, sexuality or any other reason, the address can be found via cryptic clues in each issue of the Daily Prophet (courtersy of Mocha Coffee), and there are more than enough bedrooms to go around.

Tenants

Valkyrie and Richard

Richard's come to the realisation that he really hasn't seen enough of Val this holiday, and so he's decided to change that. Having somehow found her address (his sources will remain classified) he's decided to turn up at her house and surprise her, like he's known to do with literally everyone else he knows. What he wasn't entirely prepared for was her home being a hostel, but then again he doesn't know much about her parents so they might own it. Disregarding its hostel-ness at the moment, he's asked for her and is now patiently waiting on one of the sofas on his phone for Val to make an appearance.

Valkyrie was both surprised and frightened when she recieved a call that someone was waiting for her. Having just thrown her hair back into a messy bun, Val trudged down the hall in what looked to be animated ghost slippers, clutching a matching teddy against her chest for protection. It was both a sobering and adorable scene, one because she was afraid and two because she almost looked like a child. "Rich," she said in a tone of surprise, vaguely wondering how he found this place. He shouldn't be here - he was a prince after all.

"Val!" he exclaims, breaking into a wide smile and jumping up when he spots her. "I got your address from a secret informant, hope you don't mind. How are you? It's been forever." It's actually been about a week, but that's not important right now.

Her dark eyes begun to glimmer with happiness, glad that he chose to visit her out of pure desire to catch up. Even if it was a week. "I'm fine," she said with a grin and moving over to offer the boy a polite little hug, her stuffed ghost dangling from her fingers. "I thought it was going to be a kidnapper or something waiting for me," she admitted. "So I brought Boo to protect me."


Mason and Tori

Mason was staying here for the moment, till he could find a new apartment that was actually within his price range. The lady who ran the place had been understanding about the whole thing, how he was fleeing from a bad relationship and had no place to go. So he was living here for the moment and was walking through the lobby after work, still dressed in his Auror robes

Tori suspected the only reason why the current caretaker hadn't yet kicked her out was because she was essentially the creator of the hostel. She was currently in the main lounge, scrolling through her Witchagram, waiting on Dex to come pick her up so they could sign the lease on their new apartment.

He was getting some very odd looks from the kids who lived there since well... he clearly wasn't a kid

She isn't usually attentive to the youth hostel, but given it was summer now and there was an extra rush of kids, she lifted her gaze every now and then to do a swipe over the lounge. She quirks an eyebrow when she notices one of them glaring at something. Or someone, is more like. "Mason?" she squints. Nah, it can't be.

“I broke up with her. She disappeared on me for two weeks without a Aid. So I left and there’s a note there if she ever comes back. She’s just way too controlling for me.”

She honestly isn't all too surprised at the outcome of their relationship, but she still raises her eyebrows, trying to at least seem like it. "Oh, I'm sorry," she frowns. "I'm sure you'll find someone better."

She snorts. "How can anyone... want kids? It's... complicated. And a lot of money. And time-consuming. And they cry and poop a lot. They need constant attention," she cringes. She half believes Mason will tell her they're just temporary feelings, and she's honestly hoping he won't. "And marriage... maybe. I don't know. I'm... impassive towards it, I suppose."

“I don’t know how anyone would ever want kids to be entirely honest. I’d be an awful father and I know it. And I don’t want to ever sign some stupid piece of paper to declare my love for someone. Plus love is fleeting it comes and goes and if it’s gone I want an easy out.”

It wasn't too difficult for Tori to see that she was the more romantic one out of the two. She was an avid believer in soulmates, and in love, and she wasn't one to think it died out so quickly or suddenly, let alone that it sometimes made you feel like you needed a fast way out in the case it all went to shit. That... she disagreed with Mason on. But like him, she was a fierce believer that she'd be a shit mum. It was better to save any children from having to endure her as a mother. "Besides, babies don't get cute 'til they're, like, three months old," she shakes her head. "They look like lil hairless baby monkeys until that point."

Tori was defintely the more romantic one out of the two, but that wasn’t a huge accomplishment. Mason didn’t hate romance per say, but he didn’t put much stock in it. Sure he believed in love but he thought it was all chemical reactions in the brain, nothing more. Sex felt good, and sex with many different people was great. He didn’t want to be tied to just one person. “I don’t think babies or children are ever cute.”
