Prince Barty had, for a long time, been betrothed to Jamie’s older sister – a fact that pained her more and more every day that she got to know him. At first he’d seemed standoffish and rude, but she was coming to understand that he’d never wanted the engagement and that his father was ruthless in his treatment of the young man. Watching him from an arched doorway, the younger of the princesses couldn’t help but feel a pang of sympathy, and perhaps something like longing.
The party was in full swing and the focus was, naturally, Jamie’s sister Petunia. She was content to hang out on the sidelines; while she knew her parents loved her very much, she did not receive a great deal of their attention, let alone anyone else’s. And Barty looked unhappy as well, attempting to cut his way through the crowd for – well, somwehre else, she supposed.

Sirius Black and Remus Lupin hang out in Starbucks all day. While Remus tries to do work, Sirius orders a number of drinks under different pseudonyms, with a different persona each time. Remus takes his only coffee with one cream, one sugar. Sirius spills it all over the table and has to buy him another one.
Andromeda Tonks gets a disproportionate amount of flak from her sisters for ordering a regular coffee, instead of something more magical.
R.A.B. never picks up his espresso.
Lily brings Petunia to Starbucks with her, but Petunia refuses to order anything.
James Potter orders a series of increasingly complicated drinks to try to impress Lily Evans. She is uninterested in all of them. Finally, he approaches her and asks her how she takes her coffee. “One sugar, one cream,” she tells him. He returns with two of those and asks if he can sit with her and drink them. She obliges.
Sirius pays Remus five galleons.
Myrtle drinks too much caffeine and finds she desperately needs a bathroom.
Frank Longbottom and Alice arrive for their coffee date. Frank accidentally spills both drinks; luckily Alice is charmed by his clumsiness and pays for the next round.
Lucius Malfoy goes up to the counter and orders hot tea with lemon. He doesn’t drink any refined sugars.
Arthur Weasley is fascinated by all the odd muggle technology. While the baristas try to keep their customers calm, he tries tinkering with an espresso machine. The fire grows.
Fabian and Gideon Prewett order coffees together, drink them in unison, and leave. Fabian leaves his watch on Molly Prewett’s coffee table as they depart for the unknown.
Nicholas Flamel remains seated in the corner, sipping at his umpteenth concoction.
Peter Pettigrew buys the Marauders a round of drinks: a coffee with cream for Remus, a white chocolate mocha for James, a caramel macchiato for Sirius and one espresso for himself. They toast their latest victories and down their drinks before setting off into the world together.

‘I’m not a freak,’ said Lily. ‘That’s a horrible thing to say.’
‘That’s where you’re going,’ said Petunia with relish. ‘A special school for freaks. You and that Snape boy … weirdos, that’s what you two are. It’s good you’re being separated from normal people. It’s for our safety.’
Lily glanced towards her parents, who were looking around the platform with an air of wholehearted enjoyment, drinking in the scene. Then she looked back at her sister, and her voice was low and fierce.
‘You didn’t think it was such a freak’s school when you wrote to the Headmaster and begged him to take you.’
