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.

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.

Fingers tapping on the table with boredom and gradually emerging impatience, Kendrick was glancing around, observing employees and customers alike in the pub, as he waited for his pizza that he'd ordered ten minutes ago.

Her lunch hour was extensive, as the office had been rather quiet so she could leave things in somebody else's hand and slink away for a decent meal that wasn't just a sandwich. So, she comes here. It's pretty busy, other Ministry officials clearly having the same idea as her, and for a while she's struggling to find an empty table before she spots one; well, not empty exactly, but boasting one empty seat and a familiar face in the other. "Aww," she coos as she sits, smirking at Kendrick. Her hair's up in a bun, loose ends falling in front of her eyes. "You saved us a seat. How thoughtful."

When nothing interesting seemed to be happening inside the pub, he looked out the window, eyes searching for any potential troubles or entertainment - both're pretty much the same to him for time killing. Not expecting any company, he was a bit suprised when someone joined his table. Looking up, his mahogany orbs met the lighter ones of Cedrica's. 'That's the least I could do,' he reciprocated her smirk with his own signature one, 'after all the trouble you've gone through to find me, my pretty stalker.'

"Stalker? Me?" She selects a menu from the stand, flicks it open and buries her nose into it. "I wouldn't have the patience. No, I'm on my lunch break and I just happened to walk into the same pub as you did. Such a coincidence." Her innocent smile never leaves her face as she decides on a salad and looks around, wondering where the hell all the waiters are for such a busy time of day.

'You don't say,' he snorted, shaking his head in amusement. He watched as she made her order, and nodded at the waiter's reassurance that his pizza would come soon. 'So what're you working on at the moment? No offence intended, but it seems to me wizards tech has already peaked with the invention of Floo network and time-turners - only a matter of time before muggles' AI and internet-accessing gadgets surpassed ours.'

Slinging her arm over the back of the seat, she gives him a modest shrug, her lips twisting into an unconcerned expression, a downward-turned carelessness. She seems very self-assured. "So what's stopping us from catching up to the Muggles? If they're so privileged with their internet and wifi, why should we settle for less? Magic is only a form of electromagnetism, as is wifi - there must be some way to marry them."

Another short chuckle slipped from his lips in amusement. She appeared unconcerned, but her words told another story. 'Never thought we should. Just that sometimes it feels like we have,' he clarified with a smile. 'Maybe with you leading the Tech Department, we'd finally have a new breakthrough. Who wouldn't want wifi at -' What abruptly interrupted him was the arrival of his long-waited pizza. He nodded at the waiter with a 'thank you' before looking back at Cedrica, his smirk found a way back to his face again. 'Even if not, I'm sure you could at least be the first in magical history to make tech sexy. "Electromagnetism", huh? You should say that more.'

Unsure of whether to be flattered or to pick out some sort of offence in that, she happily takes the former, and grins as she takes a swallow of her drink. "I'm sure my sexiness - as you put it - won't encourage any computers to be starting up in our offices." The pizza looks nice, smells even better. "It's a slow process, but we'll get there. We have a good team. As for the aurors - well, I don't know the first thing about them?" she prompts. "Other than you all go round catching dark wizards."

'It probably won't,' he let out a short laugh of humour at her response as he effortlessly divided his pizza into slices. 'I'm not working at your Ministry yet, but assuming all Aurors around the world are more or less doing the same thing, "go round catching dark wizards" as you say is probably the best summary of our job description.'

"You see," she begins, leaning forward and getting to work on her meal. She's bloody starving. "That's way sexier than getting wifi to work, in my own personal opinion." A smirk graces her lips, playful and light. "What did you do before going for the Auror slot?"

'Oh well, I'm not denying that. But if we really were to compare the degree of sexiness of our jobs, I might as well simply become a stripper,' he said, his tone a joking one, so was the smirk adorning his lips. 'What do you think I did?' he replied her question with another question, instead of giving a direct answer, as he folded one of the slices into half, before taking a bite. Not bad.

She looks mischievous, all of a sudden - she likes being presented with a challenge. "Hmm," she ponders, taking a few seconds to assess him, more closely than she has during their conversation. "Well, you've clearly done some work in your time - no offence. You don't look like you lived out of daddy's back pocket." A pause, a beat of thought. "And you seem very sure that your Auror application will be accepted, so you've more than likely done it before. Let me guess: you were an auror in some far away country, and you've moved to England after whatever big case you were working on over there finally closed." Leaning over, she deftly picks a piece of pepperoni from his pizza, bites into it with raised, expectant eyebrows.

He was quietly finishing his slice as he listened to her deduction, slightly intrigued, despite the mild unsettledness, however well-masked, coming from being observed like a specimen under microscope. While his expression didn't show as much, he was slightly surprised and genuinely impressed, to say the least. He suavely leaned forward in response, his faint red lips tugging upward on the right and his dark brown eyes boring into hers. 'From your accent, I'd say you've been in England for the most of your life, if not all. Hogwarts grad definitely. Ravenclaw or Slytherin, but the former more likely. The latter probably won't be as invested in muggle tech as you do. You've spent considerable amount of time in the muggle world - probably at least one parent of yours is a muggle - which explains your knowledge and enthusiasm in their technology. You don't seem to be the type who gets along with girls. So I guess you have multiple brothers, or absence of a caring mother figure. How does that sound?'

It's clear that she was probably more correct than not, and her few seconds of smugness last through sipping at her drink until he begins his own deduction. It's only slightly alarming - she can't figure out if he's actually a Sherlock or if she's just absurdly easy to read. Judging by the look of thought on his face, she assumes the former; he is, of course, just as wholly right as she was. Once he's finished, a slow, impressed smirk grows. "Seems like we know each other quite well already."

He was only seventy percent sure about the last bit, but from her expression, he was quite certain that he got it right. 'Seems like we did,' he chortled at her comment, taking a sip of his beer before picking up another slice of pizza. 'Since you said you're no stalker, I have to say you have a good potential in the detective or undercover field. That was quite impressive, really.'

She waves a dismissive hand, lips closing around the straw in her glass. She really wants a Firewhiskey. "Nah, it's not really my thing," she says. "I'm perfectly happy with making things more than deducing them. I'll leave the detective work in your clearly capable hands."

A plate of salad only? he wondered. That wouldn't be adequate for him even if it's tea only. He'd seen girls eating that little, most of them trying to get rid of their nonexistent weight. He could never understand why. 'On diet?' he asked.

Oops, it's been a while since she's been called out on something like that. Luckily, this time around, it's not a diet - just an everyday lunch. "Do I look like I need to?" she quirks an eyebrow, teasing. "It's more than enough for me, ta. That pizza does look - marvellous, though."

It was no news to him - he even used it to his advantage from time to time. With a smirk matching her own, he replied, shaking his head, 'I could lie and say I'm looking for the special someone, but no. Relationship isn't my specialty. Too many complications and troubles that come with the committment. A random hook-up in a club is easier, to be frank.'

She swipes at a stain of tomato sauce at the corner of her lips and listens, instantly sceptical. "Mmhmm. Sorry, I'm just - I'm having flashbacks to little fifth-year me." She can relate, though, and props herself up on her elbow, chin on her hand. "Isn't 'I don't do relationships' code for 'I got scorned by the love of my life at some point'?"

The waiter approaches quickly, and Cedrica, though a little punctured at how much of an asshole this guy seems to be, feels a grin grow across her face by its own accord. A voice somewhere in the back of her mind says something like challenge accepted. "If you say so, pal," she says, wiping her own mouth with a napkin and whipping out a lipstick, expertly reapplying it. "Are you heading to the Ministry, or elsewhere?"

Some other girls' hearts to capture - but he refrained from saying that out loud, one because that's not what he had planned, and more because she probably didn't deserve that. Despite the occasionally unsettling moments, the little conversation they had was...fun, to say the least. 'Till next time, I guess?' he said instead, not without curling his lips up into a smirk again.
