The beginning of summer brings a welcome opportunity. The opportunity to sit down and write. Then write some more, and finally write a bit more until the first draft of her book is done. At that point, she will read it and then likely write some more, and all that writing is gonna need something to go on. She also was going to need some stuff to write with apparently because it seemed like all the writing stuff in the house is missing, or otherwise preoccupied.

This predicament, therefore, brought Janet to one of her favorite shops, Scribbulus Writing Instruments! She grinned as she entered the shop, beelining for the quills and browsing the different types before simply grabbing a couple of the higher quality ones. This way she can figure out which she likes better. Next stop, Ink! She grins and quickly moves to gave at the ink brands, head tilted slightly. What was the difference?!

The Palace of Versailles was a place that, despite it's size, could become very claustrophobic for short periods of time. These times were, quite unfortunately, highly linked with the arrival of one Mimosa Harrington. The Clement Ward was doted upon by everyone in the family, and Elenore was, in short, nothing less than jealous of the witch.

Or, perhaps more fitting, afraid of being replaced by the witch.

It had been the reason Elenore had opted to come to Diagon Alley for herself instead of sending one of many of the Palace's staff to do her shopping for her. And, seeing as her parents were out of the country, it had only been Jacques she had to answer to. Her brother, though looking very confused with the notion of going to Diagon Alley to do your own shopping, had agreed with little and less argument, simply making Elenore promise to stay out of Knockturn Alley, and to make sure she was back before the workers came out of the Ministry and in to the Leaky Cauldron.

Though Elenore knew Jacques had done much, much worse in his own exploring of the street, Elenore had agreed. She simply needed to get away and if it only took a small promise to Jacques, Elenore could do that.

Most of her list had already been bought -- the Palace staff were nothing short of efficient in that manner. So, Elenore was left with the more personal items. A new quill would be necessary, with the ink with gold flakes she loved to write to her Grandmere with. The parchment would need to be of the highest quality, and, of course, Elenore would need to see to a present for Mimosa.

Jacques was starting the preparations for the young Clement ward's tenth birthday, but Elenore had not looked twice at the plans he'd made, knowing they were never going to hear the end of this.

Moving along the aisle, Elenore paused before the inks, scanning the bottles with little and less enthusiasm, she knew the brand which she would be purchasing, but she always looked over them for different ideas. Though, today, with a small smile on her features, the young witch denoted that an ink had been made with the scent of Fleur de Lis infused within it.

Interesting, the youngest Clement though, reaching out to take the bottle from the shelf, and bring it closer for inspection. The Fleur de Lis was so very French, it was highly out of place in a British shop. But the Fleur de Lis... it was a scent the young Clement witch used most often.

Janet looked up at the other girl in the aisle, watching as she picked up one of the fancier looking bottles. It was on one of the shelves that had various scented inks and Janet frowned slightly before turning back to her own shopping. There was no use in writing her book in a frilly ink like that. The scent liekly wore off after a while and this was only the rough draft anyways.

That of course didn't stop her from gazing over at them again in curiousity. They would be good for letters. Surely the scent would hold long enough that Owlivia could get it where it was going before the scent wore off. Janet glanced at the ather witch, looking ot be about her age, though seeming to be better off than her. Not in any particular way, other than she simply looked like she didn't quite belong in the little shop.

Janet studied her face for a split moment before turning back to the shelf she stood in front of. The girl seemed familliar like Janet had seen her around before but nonetheless she wouldn't stare. It was rude.

She knelt to look at a lower shelf, narrowing her eyes some as she read the labels. This particular section of the aisle looked to be all the generic, boring inks, but that was fine. They were cheaper and generally of better quality than some of the other inks. She grabbed a dark purple colored one and stood, reading the label carefully and checking the price. This seemed like a good choice and she grabbed three more, moving down the aisle some to look at the more interesting inks. It was always fun to see what new ideas were being created by... whoever made ink.

It was, in Elenore's opinion, always very easy for an individual to know when they were being watched. When one was brought up in the Palace where every move you made was inspected, criticised and duly noted, one knew when eyes were upon you. Elenore's posture straightened only slightly in that moment, always impeccable in that manner, but habitually just correcting the slightest of imperfections.

However, Elenore was not greeted with a conversation, so when the feeling subsided, she looked across to try to find the culprit of the look. Her eyes fell upon a witch her own age, one Janet Shinings, if Elenore was correct. A Slytherin witch in her year, but not a girl Elenore had ever made time to get to know.

Slytherins, in Elenore's opinion, were likely to be in her brother's pocket, and Elenore did not trust anyone who might know Jacques. Merlin knew what they might report back to him, and Elenore was not one to wait to find out. Turning her attention back to the ink in her hand, Elenore decided that she would purchase this one, and her usual gold leaf ink which she would get from behind the counter.

Glacing across once more, Elenore took in the witch who'd been looking at her, and noted how she was looking at the plain inks. Unfortunate, Elenore thought to herself. Writing, in her opinion, had always been on of the more interesting outlooks in life.

Janet picked up a glittery ink that had a slight floral scent to it and shrugged, looking at the label with narrowed eyes. She tilted her head and murmured to herself. "Infused with the flowers of the brightest hills? I suppose this would work for letters to family members." Most of which lived father than it was worth to travel unless you planned to stay for a week or more.

Janet glanced up once she grabbed the frillier ink and smiled at her, holding the ink up with one raised eyebrow. "Do you know if this is a good brand? I usually go for the more basic inks for my book but I'm considering this for various letters and such."

Janet bit her lip, going over her lip in her head quickly, checking the small pile of items cradled in one arm. She still needed to grab some parchment before she went home. But that shouldn't take long surely, she would be writing in no time, and a good thing too considering her newfound Ravenclaw friend had helped her come up with many new ideas and concepts to incorporate.

As Elenore moved to walk past the Slytherin witch, the other girl had the audacity to speak to Elenore as if she were some kind of staff member of the shop. Did she look like the kind of person who knew which ink was the best ink to purchase in a variety of inks available? Of course she didn't, she was a Clement!

However, Elenore Clement was very capable of hiding those kinds of thoughts, and instead focusing on keeping her features trained in a manner that did not suggest such a question was beneath her. Instead, the youngest Clement schooled her features in to a small smile to the Slytherin witch instead, and contemplated the question with which she'd been presented.

Looking at the brand, Elenore began to nod before noting the infusion it had been given. A small look of amusement touched her features in that moment. "The brand is fine, in my opinion, not the best, but it is durable enough for letter writing. However, your choice of scent that has been infused with the ink leaves a lot to be desired. I would suggest picking something a little more... specific than that of 'flowers of the brightest hills'. Such a comment is lacking in any kind of inspiration."

The comments might have seemed a little off, but Elenore was a believer in scents being specific, and matching as much as possible. "I would, perhaps, suggest a scent that matches your perfumes, or something similar. Then, whomever you're writing to will be able to relate -- consciously, or not -- that is coming from you." Elenore suggested, though whether the witch before her coordinated so particularly all her scents to have her 'own' scent be known to others, Elenore could not be sure.

Janet grinned as the other girl looked at the ink she held out. She listened to her comment carefully and tilted her head slightly by the end of it. Something that matched her perfume? Janet nodded slowly, though she didn't often wear perfume.

"Thank you so much. I just don't usually use scented ink, but I decided I'd try it and you seemed like you knew exactly what you wanted." She smiled sheepishly. "I usually stick to plainer stuff." She held up one of the purple inks before placing the scented one back where it went.

She then turned back to the other witch and shifted her stuff into one arm, holding out her free hand for the other girl to shake. "I'm Janet by the way. I absolutely love that dress. I doubt I could ever pull it off. That color always seems to look bad on me but it looks great on you!" She gave the girl a small smile.

The comment of knowing what she wanted was one that Elenore gave a small, brief smile towards. There was nothing more to say on that point, she'd simply managed to look like a know-it-all, apparently, when it came to inks, at least.

Janet's comment of always picking the plainer inks made Elenore let out a small laugh, not in a mean manner, but to show she understood the sentiment. "It's okay, the plain inks do exactly as you need them to, after all." Though, Elenore rarely used such boring inks, she knew other people thought them practical. As if gold leafed inks were any less practical?

Noting Janet put the scented ink back, Elenore deduced the witch was not quite sold with the idea of matching it to a perfume. Shame, the French witch thought to herself, but decided not to push the subject any further in that moment.

The proffered hand of Janet's with the introduction made Elenore consider the witch for a moment. She did not know who Elenore was, it seemed, and yet Elenore knew who she was. After a moment, Elenore took her hand, and shook it gently. "Elenore." The witch replied, deciding upon leaving out her surname because it would likely not do to throw Clement around here too much.

Janet went on to compliment Elenore's attire, and the witch looked down at the dress she had borrowed from her Maman's wardrobe that morning. Not that Elenore would ever admit to such a feat, of course, she smiled at the witch in that moment. "Thank you, Janet. I'm sure you would look great in it, and, if not, you can always transfigure the colours. My seamstress is very good with such spells." Elenore explained.

"Your outfit is quite wonderful, too." Elenore added in the moment, though as with most of the Hogwarts students' attire, Elenore would never be seen wearing the same outfit herself.

"Are you in Diagon Alley for the day?" The Hufflepuff asked, knowing it was much too soon to try to shake off the witch before her.
