His foot, just like the establishment's name, is hopping. Taeyang and his bright smile are the only guests at a bar that is nearly empty. His stomach is full in butterbeer and his heart is full of happiness. After a particular well done performance, he had decided to come down here. And for the past half-hour, he's been drunk in his own happiness. He's been full of loud hellos and interacting with everyone. Happy Taeyang always ended up in Social Taeyang. And he was waiting for the next person to pounce on.

Oak sat at the bar with a beer in his hand. It was a weekend so he decided it was nice to get out for some time by himself. The bar was mostly empty, which was nice since it wasn't so loud.

With a pretty smile on his face, his eyes lock on Oak and he moves in. "Oh, hi! My name's Taeyang. What's your name?" He bounces into the adjourning bar seat pretty quickly, American accent sort of making its way through the near empty bar.

He doesn't expect the introduction, but flashes a friendly smile nevertheless. "Oak. Nice to meet you." The Australian accent isn't as showable as the American, due to years of living in Britain, yet it's still there.

"Right. Oak." He nods, comprehending the name yet seeming like he didn't. "Like the tree? Hm. It's such a good name. You know, Taeyang means sun in Korean. We can be pals, almost."

"Yup, exactly like the tree." He laughs a little bit as well in response to the comment, even though it wasn't the first time he had heard it. "Oh, cool. Yeah, sun and oaks do sort of go together."

"Am I being weird? I'm probably talking too fast. I get that all the time. Anyway, names aside, we have the coolest ones. Seriously. No one else in here can even say otherwise. Taeyang and Oak, the world's finest nature bois. Maybe I'm getting a bit carried away. I probably am, aren't I?" His rapid conversation comes to a complete stop. It's like he's a car going at full speed - except, of course, he's encountered a stop sign. There's a apologetic smile to go along with his next bit of conversation. Darling Taeyang, never really does stop with his animated chatter. But that's just him! Excitement and happiness that go cutely together. "I'm a dancer. Today-well, tonight really, we had a performance. North London, and it was the best. It seems to be that I can't get that rush out of my system yet. Would you believe me when I say I'm not drunk at all?"

Oak can't help but laugh a little bit, taking a sip of his drink so he doesn't chuckle even more. "Not weird at all," he answers truthfully. "Cheers to having the coolest names, then... And being the nature boys." He lifts his glass up a bit with the last comment, taking another sip right after. "Dance, huh? That's really neat. It's hard, I bet." He chuckles just a tiny bit more before adding, "not drunk at all? Man, well, you should order yourself another drink then."

"I'm too excited to drink right now." White teeth showed themselves happily. He leans forward a bit, looking at Oak very happily. There could be no other word that could describe Taeyang so well, especially right now. "It is! I only started when I was...seventeen? Now I help run a studio. It's super tiring but super rewarding. You'll have to see me one day to understand. Maybe drag you along to one of my classes." He adds with a teasing wink. "What about you, though? Tell me about you." Eyes look at Oak expectantly, but with a pleasant expression.

"You know, I've never heard someone say they were to excited to drink while being in a bar," he says with a chuckle. "Running a whole studio must be crazy. I'd definitely be down to check it out." He thinks for a moment before answering. "Um... Well, I teach at Hogwarts. First Year Flying Lessons. Only graduated there a couple years ago, though."

"I'm not like all the other girls!" His voice rises to make a mockery of the common trope. He bursts out laughing at his own joke after a few seconds. "Right, I was wild back in my Ilvermorny days but I don't think I'm much for a drink nowadays. I'm a big fan of sweets though. Muggle to magical, I'll eat them all." His hand goes up to call over the nearest bartender. "A water, please." Taeyang ordered with a smile, before his attention focused again on Oak. His eyes were warm and his demeanor very interested. "It's hard work, but you have first years. Oooof, I probably can't compare to you. I'm not sure if I can handle first years."

He chuckles at the joke as well, finishing up his beer right after. "I'll have another beer," he adds after Taeyang, since he wasn't going to just leave with only drinking one beer. "A sweet tooth then? I'm not much of a fan for sweets, so I think I'll stick to my beer." He laughs at the last comment, knowing very well that there was much truth to that sentence. "There definitely... quite the group."

Taeyang sips from his cup, appreciating the way that the water goes down his throat and soothes it. Looking closer, there's small beads of sweat that lightly trace their way down his face. Even if his performance has ended awhile back, traces of it still remain everywhere. "Drinking's a wild card, you never know if you get a more excited me or I turn into a sad drunk. Besides, you gotta stay hydrated." He sounds amused, yet there's a bit of truth to it. "Tell me more! Not everyone is a teacher at Hogwarts."

"Luckily, I have a pretty high alcohol intolerance," he jokes, although he very much did. It definitely took a few more beers to get Oak drunk compared to most people. "Well... It's definitely pretty crazy. Although, definitely a ton of fun as well. The students are always wild, so there's a bunch of that to deal with."


Gabriel and Julian

His apartment was not too far from the market so he was a frequent visitor to the small pub. He could have gone with something more magical but he went with a simple whiskey on the rocks which he sipped at tentatively. He had gotten into a fight earlier that day, admittedly a petty one, but still he had copped a few punches, causing a bruise to form on his jawline. Nothing serious and it was nothing that bothered him, just caused a few people to look his way.

Now, let's be honest with ourselves here - has Gabriel just come to this joint to steal ideas for drinks he can sell at the cafe? Yes. Yes, he completely has. Usually he only sells his own ideas but recently there's been quite a baker's block and now he's stuck, so he's come down to the local and perched himself at the bar with a colourful-looking concoction and a wandering eye.

It didn't take long for his eyes to fall on Gabriel. Whose eyes wouldn't fall on someone who looked like him? "Are you alone?" he asked, twirling his drink, before smiling, "or am I the only one in need of company?"

Not that he isn’t already interested just be the voice, but when Gabriel turns his head to see Julian, his eyes widen a tad in both alarm at the bruise, and then surprise at how well he suits it. “You look more in need of a doctor, darling,” he says, lips around his straw, but shuffled over nonetheless. “I’m afraid But I’m willing to offer my services.”

"You mean this? 'Tis nothing, served worse," he said, a grin flashing across his face, ignoring the ache that the movement caused. "Why waste their time like that? And why thank you, it's a boring night. Pretty drink," he noted, "I like to think I'm creative but..." he trailed off to shake his drink, as if it displayed the end of that sentence.

His lips curl around the straw of the drink as his eyes focus on the bruise again, mentally flicking through all the healing spells he's absorbed over the years, before saying, "Right, come here, I know how to fix that thing. I've got a magic touch."

He tilted his head but shrugged, doing as he was told. Not only did he get himself healed up, he also had a boy who looked like that touch him. Win, win. He placed his drink down and slid into the seat next to him. "Be my guest," he said. His words were slow, relaxed. Though that was average for Julian. Even though he was part of a dangerous organisation, he was pretty docile.

Studying healing was probably the best decision of Gabriel's life, if it lets him do things like this to strangers in bars. A quick mutter of a spell and Julian's eye instantly begins to clear, the skin brightening, the dark shadow of the bruise receding to nothing until its presence is entirely lost. Gabriel leans back, now looking at the handsome - and totally unscathed - face of his new drinking partner. "There, good as new."

He touched it lightly and winked over at Gabriel. "You were right, you do have a magic touch," he noted, "let me buy you a round of drinks. As thanks," he suggested.

"Born and raised," he said with a small grin, before tossing the rest of his drink down his throat, "Portugal, huh? I've always wanted to visit, never really had the time." Or the funds.

Wow, smooth; Gabriel smirks, taking a sip. "I'm worth believing in? You're too kind. You'll certainly be praying for something after a night with me." The last few words get a little lost in the bottom of the glass, but it's obvious from the twinkle in his eyes where he's going with this.

He watched him for a moment before taking a sip of his drink. To him, it was a bit too sweet but he'll get through it for Gabriel. Then he grinned, knowing where this was beginning to lead. "Maybe I would, or maybe you'll be," he said, slightly teasing, "as long as we don't pray in a church."

"She might just cut my balls off if she hears I've been talking about her to someone she doesn't know," he responded with a smile. Read: he's not sure how carried away he'd get and start spilling secrets about the black parade. "I'm pretty sure she thinks I'm annoying, though."
