    Was this real? This was real wasn't it? It had taken Scorpius a while to get there, the Clockwork bus only went so quickly, but now that he was here he felt like he could practically explode with excitement. This was beyond anything he had been hoping for! It was really here; Hogsmede in the flesh! At first he had figured that someone must have got the name wrong, it couldn't be the same place, but it looked as though it had just been picked up and placed in the middle of all of this chaos along with him and the rest of the people in Pandora. What an unusual concept. He wondered if that could ever happen to Hogwarts itself...

    Anyway, this was absolutely fantastic. He wondered if there was anywhere here which might take him on for a part time job or something, because he really did need the money at the moment. His school equipment didn't come cheaply and he was living off hand outs. While he didn't mind that, he felt bad as he knew he could work and therefore he was resolved to. For now, he looked like a kid in a sweet shop as he looked through all the glass panes, peeking in at familiar settings. For once, he felt quite peaceful. He had not been to Hogsmede in the alternative reality which he and Albus had created but he could have bet his family's fortune that it was nothing like this.

    Scorpius didn't know where to start first. He was practically skipping around the village in his school robes. Maybe he could get some winter wear, after all, they did have a shop here which he could purchase his school things from. Oh this was just too exciting and too perfect for the wizard to take in all at once. So much so, he found himself turning to the nearest person and said to them, "Could you just pinch me, just to make sure I'm not dreaming because this is all absolutely fantastic!"

    "I don't believe I'm allowed to harm a student in that way' replied Robin to the boys' request, which would've been odd if he didn't know of the odd saying he'd heard people say in regards to dreaming something. He'd been interested when he heard of this place, a shopping area specific to wizards though he was technically a mage he hoped to find something that might tickle his fancy. "I had heard there was a tome store here, you wouldn't happen to know where that was would you" he asked the boy.

    Since his magic generally relied on tomes, he figured picking up some more would be advantageous to him and his students. He knew little of the place where this town came from but he guessed the boy who was before him might have came from said place, it was only logical given his actions. He knew the boy only from seeing him in passing on the school grounds, he didn't attend his class but he knew the boy was a student from seeing him on the grounds heading to classes.

    "So I'm guessing this place comes from your world, given your reaction to being here" he added with a fairly inquisitive tone to his voice.

    Ahsoka had found Hogsmeade to be an interesting village indeed. Of course, some people had been a bit unnerved at the sight of her not being human. But little mattered by then. She had recently joined a man with a goal she shared, and the ex-Jedi had decided it was safer to go than him. The Force was closer to magic compared to what power her new friend had the capability of doing, and she'd heard that Hogsmeade only have those with magical powers be within it.

    "Come on... Where are you?" She whispered as she glanced at a bookshelf full of tomes and information on magic. She started to gloss over an adjacent shelf, but stopped in her tracks. She immediately proceeded to pick up a book and went to wait in line to buy it. That's when she overheard two of the people in front of her talking. Apparently, the village appearing was somewhat exciting to someone from the world it originated from.

    She almost opened her mouth to speak, but decided to let the two converse. She just needed to buy the tome and then get it to her friend soon. She wrapped her arms around the tome, keeping it close to her chest. She smiled as the two continued to talk, all waiting to make a purchase.

    Scorpius felt like a kid at Christmas. In fact, it was better than that. It was like a child who had been given a sweet shop at Christmas and it was just absolutely fantastic. He gave an excited squeal but was brought back down to earth slightly by the man who declined to pinch his arm. Scorpius was resolved to do it himself and did so just to check that he was not completely dreaming. When he opened his eyes and he was still in Hogsmede he was thrilled beyond measure. Scorpius nodded awkwardly at the man who had declined the offer of pinching him, "Yes, this is one of my favourite shopping places." Having only been here once or twice, it still had the thrill which Diagon Alley lost after spending a lot of his childhood upon the cobbled streets in the early morning or evening. His father had never allowed him to be there when it was at its busiest and so he had never seen it at its best, but it had been for their own protection. The wizarding community did think that he was Voldermort's son after all.

    He was of course aware of the woman buying a book who was smiling at them. Scorpius reddened. He wasn't all that good at interacting with others in a reasonable way and he instead was unsure of himself and dropped a few syllables before forming a complete sentence. "It-it's a good bookshop." He said to both of the people who he now found himself in conversation with.
