The Leaky Cauldron
Wikia DARP - The Leaky Cauldron 01


The Leaky Cauldron, currently run by Jennifer Thompson, is an old-established, and highly popular, watering hole, disguised to Muggle eyes as a broken-down shop front on Charing Cross Road. It also provides the pedestrian access to Diagon Alley in its back yard.

Wikia DARP - The Leaky Cauldron sign
Built in 1500 by Daisy Dodderidge, the first landlady and proprietress, it has flourished under liberal and fascist regimes alike, always managing to keep its doors open, and the passing trade passing through.

Great figures on both ends of the spectrum, from Voldemort to the Weasleys, and from Harry and Hagrid to Dumbledore and Dobby, have rubbed shoulders here with the throngs preparing to brave Diagon Alley, and the glares of Gringotts' goblins.

Former landlords and landladies include the Protean Tom, who ran the place for most of the 20th century, and Hannah Abbott, wife of Neville Longbottom.

Wikia DARP - Diagon Alley entrance from the Leaky Cauldron
Many people looking to discover up-to-the-minute gossip, if not news, find the Cauldron a better, warmer source than the Daily Prophet, although some Prophet stories have certainly been hatched within these walls.

Muggle-Borns, and particularly Muggle parents, often get their first taste of the Wizarding world, literally as likely as not, here, and so it holds a special place in many students' hearts, no matter how long since they graduated.

She'd be sitting in an empty booth in the crowded pub nibbling on her lunch reading a book which had moving pictures of magical creatures.

Aaliyyah had Apparated outside the Leaky Cauldron on the Diagon Alley side, making sure it was out of sight of Muggles. As she flattened out her skirt and messed with some of her curls, she entered the pub with an overly professional vibe for a seventeen year old. When she looked around, she noticed that it wasn't incredibly full which she was both pleased and disappointed to see.

She'd glance up and spot the new arrival. She looked...interesting. Definitely exotic and from the way she looked at everything and everyone, it was clear she wasn't here often.

Aaliyyah's eyes landed on a girl who was looking at her, perhaps even staring. The witch straightened her shoulders and waved with a delicate smile gracing her lips. Briefly, she waited to see if she would be welcomed over there before she approached with her small heels clicking against the ground. "Is it okay if I sit here?" she asked, thick accent and all. "I can't say I have very many friends in England yet...and you looked nice enough," she explained, although she knew she didn't need to.

She'd smile. "Sure...have a seat." She'd close the book. "So...where are you from?"

"Technically, Morocco, but my mother is from Egypt," she said, still smiling as she slid into the booth. Immediately, she flattened out her skirt and blouse. It was then that she realized she had left her jacket back at home.

She'd nod, clearly interested. "I've never visited either, though I hope to get to Egypt sooner rather than later." She'd pause. "So, what brings you here?"

"Well, many things...It seems that my cousin and her husband have started building their family in England instead of back home. My old pen pal, Zayd, is also living here so I've purchased an apartment with him." The Uagadou alumna paused, before nodding in conclusion.

She'd look a bit surprised. "Oh...Zayd Shafiq? I know him really well...we lived together last year."

Her puzzled expression should've been enough without explanation, but she voiced her thoughts anyways. "Well, he certainly didn't mention living with a girl...unless you're maybe Albion?" The teenager seemed to be coming to some understanding before she was shaking her head. "He was Head Boy. You were the Head Girl, weren't you?" she asked, obviously just trying to clarify.

She'd smile and nod. "Melinda Bagman." She'd pause. "...and I didn't mean to insinuate we were like...living together, or in any form of romantic relationship. Just friends sharing some common rooms and duties while at Hogwarts."

"Why, I wouldn't have assumed that myself. I highly doubted you were this girl that he has described to me, not like he's written that much about it though," she said, attempting smoothly to keep whatever they did talk about private without giving out too many details on it. "It's an absolute pleasure to have met you, Miss Bagman," she said, "Sorry, Melinda. I'm Aaliyyah Mahmoudi."



Melinda 6th Year5

She'd look a little confused. "So you two...have written one another? Were you two friends when you were younger...or promised to one another as children?"

A chuckle slipped from her lips, "I hope you don't mean in terms of betrothal. I had another boy for that," she said as she started going through her coin purse to get out money for a water. The topic seemed to be something of a joke to her, no matter how true it was. "My tutor found him and set us up when we were ten and eleven. I don't know how."

Her eyes would widen a little. She'd been joking. "So...then what are you and Zayd?"

"Nothing, of course. We're just friends, to my knowledge," she said, not minding the look that Melinda was giving her. It wasn't out of the unusual any. Actually it was difficult for her not to laugh.

Aaliyyah wasn't intimidated nor scared as she looked up at him. Rashida's husband was part-Giant, so she was used to it at this point. "Water, please," she said, putting out more money than was needed for a water.

She'd smile and gesture to the sandwich and soup she had. "I'm still fine, thanks." She'd look back at the other woman. "Sorry...I guess I just assume when a guy and girl are living together..." She'd trail off and shrug.

"No, it doesn't always have to be. Do two homosexual men or women living together mean that they have to be dating?" she asked, but she didn't have an attitude like the words might've suggested. "Nonetheless, if I were to have feelings for him, which I do not, I think they would've popped up years ago."

She still thought it was odd, but would nod. "So...what do you do here?"

Aaliyyah was used to having to talk about what she was doing with her life, so she had no problem doing it although she tried to remain modest. "I work at the Ministry of Divine Health, but also volunteer at the Society for Distressed Witches." She paused, "What do you do, Melinda?"

She'd smile. "I research and work with magical creatures...but what is the Ministry of Divine Health or the Society for Distressed Witches? I've never heard of either."

Aaliyyah looked over at Bran, smiling and quietly thanking him, before her focus turned back to Melinda. "Oh, it's just an organization to observe and care for the wellness of witches and wizards. We work with St. Mungo's sometimes." she said, smiling, "Then, there's the charity organization that helps poor or troubled witches, to put them both simply."
