Ideas for streets off Diagon Alley

athousanderrors:

Asserbik Alley - full of potions masters, this street is perpetually filled with a bitter, cloying fog. 

Addition Alley - the newest street, created to expand the back of the Leaky Cauldron and Gringotts and provide more accomodation to visiting witches and wizards.

Astetik Alley - the fashion quarter. 

Arbory Alley - Herbology fans find their way here, where live specimens of plants both common and rare can be bought and sold.

Biaxee Alley  - bisects Diagon Alley.

Buecollic Alley - farmer’s market; the street is only accessible every second Saturday.

Cordee Alley - though the Leaky Cauldron remains a favourite, many more bars and cafes can be found here. 

Fragment Alley - only one wizard has ever found his way out of Fragment Alley. No one knows what he saw, as the poor chap has spoken in half-words and unintelligible sounds ever since.

Froog Alley - second-hand clothes and books shops. Certain purebloods joke that Froog Alley is the Weasley’s second home.

(alternatively copperbadge uses ‘Mardjinn Alley’ as the second-hand district in his fic ‘Stealing Harry’ which I don’t have the link for to hand, but is well worth a read).

Selesti Alley - The best soothsayers and astronomers can be found here. It is in fact a raised street, on stilts, that runs across both Arbory Alley and part of Diagon itself.

Aaand now I’ve run out of time. Meh.

seriously though, people need to get over this whole ‘hufflepuff = goody two-shoes’ thing

can you imagine, for a moment, hufflepuffs fighting in a war, whether for light or dark

those fuckers are loyal unto the end, aren’t afraid of hard or messy work, have the patience to play the long game, would work tirelessly for the cause they believed in, and aren’t swayed by personal ambitions, pride or emotions.

like

a dark hufflepuff would be the most terrifying, effective soldier ever.

#not to mention that honesty can be one of the darkest most brutal traits in a person

“See, Rowling largely operates Harry’s generation in a clear system of parallels to the previous generation, Marauders and all. Harry is his father—Quidditch star, a little pig-headed sometimes, an excellent leader. Ron is Sirius Black—snarky and fun, loyal to a fault, mired in self-doubts. Hermione is Remus Lupin—book smart and meticulous, always level-headed, unfailingly perceptive. Ginny is Lily Evans—a firecracker, clever and kind, unwilling to take excuses. Draco Malfoy is Severus Snape—a natural foil to Harry, pretentious, possessed of the frailest ego and also deeper sense of right and wrong when it counts. And guess what? Neville Longbottom is Peter Pettigrew.

Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does.”
