The Seeker's Stop
TheSeekersSpot


The Seeker's Stop is a Quidditch themed bar and dining spot, owned and operated by ex-Harpies beater Cerys Glendower, with help from her family, the legendary Schmidts. The bar is open to everyone, and alcohol is served to anyone of age, with an array of beer to choose from. There's also club soda, water, and a fountain for those non-alcoholic drinks. Cerys also serves food here: mainly wings, burgers, and chips. Quidditch matches are always displayed up on the screens, and events are usually held for the Quidditch seasons, with discounts and specials. Decorating the walls are old jerseys for many members of quidditch teams, and some retired jerseys. (Cerys hung her own up there, as well as Arthur Schmidt's, Blake Schmidt's, and her wife's - Lena Schmidt.) Every team on the National Quidditch League has their logo set up somewhere on the wall, and the logo for the Quidditch World Cup is held in between everything.

He pointed out. They'd gone on enough trips outside Hogwarts that he found it odd that they never came here. Seemed... nice enough.

Hephaestus raised an eyebrow at the word "again". If he had to go back he obviously shouldn't have left in the first place. "That's why I'd never join. They're all too problematic. You're the only decent one." He admitted, dipping the chicken in ranch and throwing the piece into his mouth.

Hephaestus rolled his eyes, taking a swig of water before speaking again. "They're only nice to the other snakes because they live under a delusion that their misfit group can compare to the bond of an actual family. They're all just lost, sad puppies that don't know where to turn. Seriously, I don't know why you hang with them. You're nothing like them." Festus made his opinion known proudly the way he always did.

Festus allowed a small chuckle to fall from his lips before they turned up into a smirk. "You're not wrong." He admitted. She knew him too well. But he knew her well, too. That's how Hephaestus knew a lot of the Elsa she showed the world was simply a facade. But he didn't care to point it out. Festus knew she had her reasons for it, and that was good enough for him.

No more annoying classmates who answer every question." Elsa sighs and stands up. "Hey Cerys? Daddy will pay for it, just put it on his tab~" After a confirmation from the backroom, Elsa smiles, and holds out her hand for Festus.

It's been a while since it's been just her and her siblings. It's been a chaotic few months as she settled into her new home. She knew it was the same for some of her other siblings, but the brunt of it was over and she was looking forward to spending some quality time with them, like they did all those years ago at The Three Broomsticks. Not surprised to be the first to make her way into the bar, Blake turns straight for the bar, where they'd all agreed to meet. Honestly, half of her family turned out to be alcoholics and she wasn't one bit surprised.

Aeron hooted as he ran up to Arthur and bear hugged him, even lifting him off the ground a bit. After setting him back down and letting him breathe, he turned to Blake. "Is that my super great, amazing, beautiful little sister?" Aeron asked with a smirk and hugged her just as tight, despite the fact that he had seen her that morning. They do live together.

She recognized she'd gotten healthier in the past decade, but it was beyond her as to why Arthur was commenting on it now. She leans in, pressing a kiss to his cheek and later Aeron's when he arrives, out of habit whenever she sees her siblings. "The one you live with? Yeah, that's me," she grins, patting him on the back as she returns the hug.

"Let's get started, shall we?" Aeron prompted, although, it seemed as though Blake had already done that bit. He went ahead and ordered a Fire Whiskey for both himself and his brother.

She visibly got more excited when she approached her favorite brother Arthur, and she gave him a small punch in the arm. "And just where have you been, mister? It seems like it's been forever."

She could, in theory, make a joke about his comment, but Blake had grown past all the self-deprecating jokes, at long last. Seeing Sadie get so excited, especially when she saw Arthur, brought a laugh out of her. Her sister was playing favorites, and she had a feeling Aeron would make a remark about it soon. "Oh damn, Aeron, you're just gonna let her take your title like that?" she smirks, nudging her brother playfully.

She challenged, stealing his Fire Whiskey with a small smirk. Turning back to Arthur, Sadie offered him a look of pity. "Yeah, EQ told me about Mila. I could try talking to her if you like?" She offered, though she knew the real people that needed to talk would be himself and Mila instead. "As far as I go, I've just been busy taking care of my army of kids. Other than that, I'm working with Blake and the girls. Every now and then I get a break like this though, and it is heavenly." She sighed in content, taking a swallow of Aeron's her whiskey.

It's already halfway done, so it doesn't take long for the bottle to be empty. She places it on the counter and waves the bartender over, ordering a firewhiskey like her brothers this time around. She's silent while Arthur and Sadie talk, entertaining herself with her drink. She partially wants to ask Aeron about Rhian, but since she knows it's still a sore topic, and she isn't sure whether or not he knows she's back, she stays quiet on the topic.

Aeron appreciated Blake's encouragement, and flashed her a cheesy smile. "Danke, mein Leuchtkäfer." He beamed, using his old nickname for her. While Arthur and Sadie spoke, he decided to chat with Blake. Sure, they lived together, but they still hadn't really had the chance to talk in a while. "So I was thinking about taking the kids to the aquarium sometime next week. Do you have any time off to go?" He asked, hoping she could find time in her schedule. He knew how busy she was. Aeron could always take the kids himself, but he wanted Blake to go too.

"Bitte, guter herr," Blake listens intently what he has to say, and her lips begin to curl; she didn't foresee a free day in her week until the very end, but she doubted it'd present any problems. "I have next Sunday off, I think. If not, though I'm fairly certain I am, I'm sure I can talk with Sadie. When was the last time we spent a day out together?" she smiles. "Lukas has been asking to go for some time now, and I know for a fact Lisbet loves spending time with Leyla."

Aeron smiled at the idea. "It really has been a long time since we've gotten to hang out. And Leyla loves Lisbet just as much." He responded with a nod. He knew Leyla wanted brothers and sister, but she made do with her cousins and loved them the just the same. "I wish I could've given her more siblings, but I just couldn't find the right person. Rita definitely wasn't it. The only good thing that woman ever gave me was Leyla." Aeron admitted, her very name leaving a bitter taste in his mouth.

Sadie gave him a small smile. "Yeah, but I bet you sure worked that half-hair-do." She teased, trying to make him feel better. "But maybe that just means you need to learn." Sadie suggested with a shrug. "I had to teach myself some stuff about music when EQ and Cass wanted to learn how to play. It was hard and I didn't enjoy it too much, but they sure did. It was time I got to spend with them and that was enough for me." She offered, a fond look adorning her face at the mention of her babies. "Try watching her play sometime."

"Have you ever considered adoption? There's a lot of kids down at Lil Bundles that crave a home... and you wouldn't need a partner to adopt," she suggests. Although she isn't sure it's something Aeron would do, she knows he'd make an excellent father for one of those orphans; he already does magnificently with Leyla. "I never liked Rita," she admits, after a moment. "She wasn't meant for you," But Rhian is. "I genuinely don't know how something so precious can be born to someone so... so... Rita."

Aeron nodded a bit. "I think about it all the time. I just don't think I could pull it off. You and Sadie already had to help me too much when it came to Leyla. I'm lucky she turned out okay with me as a dad, but most of that is because she's an amazing girl." He confessed, shrugging a bit. "And I know she wasn't meant for me - Rita, that is. She's a royal b*tch. She was only supposed to be a fling, but then we had Leyla. I honestly don't know how that baby girl came from her either. She was - is awful." Aeron declared with an unpleasant look on his face.

"You might be a busy dad, but you know how to juggle Leyla and my children, when you babysit and take them out. Leyla was your first, and we were mostly scared you'd drop her or something. But you've certainly proved to be more than capable," There's a brief pause while Blake drinks her firewhiskey, her nose crinkling at the taste; it was much, much stronger than what she'd gotten used to already. "Leyla turned out to be amazing because she had an even more amazing dad raising her."

Aeron flashed his sister a bright smile. "Ah, stop, Blakey, you're making me blush." He teased, but there was sincerity to his words. "But really, thank you. That means a lot coming from you." He expressed, giving her a small side hug. "I'll think about it. Maybe it's time I have a couple more and really settle down." Aeron shrugged before ordering a fire whiskey to replace the one Sadie finessed.

The firewhiskey definitely isn't her lane, so when she orders her third drink, it's a beer. She cranes her neck, turning her head to look at Arthur. "I've played my fair share," she says, slowly. "You... want to be a gamer?" Blake looks at him weirdly. "Are you having a midlife crisis already, Arty? Because you're... eleven years early."

"If this is a midlife crisis, I think you should get into knitting instead of video games." He teased with a playful smirk.
