Welcome to Infinite Arms! We are a no word count, character driven, AU Marauder Era roleplay set in November 1980. No one is safe and no one side can claim to be innocent. The Dark Lord has recruited many to his cause, creatures of all types have been attacking citizens and with each passing month the murders and disappearances have increased. Albus Dumbledore is fighting back. He has recruited a select group of talented young witches and wizards to fight against the darkness that threatens the world--but will they be able to resist succumbing to darkness themselves?
December 1980
Happy Holidays!
Full Moon: Sunday 21


Our limited edition beans this month are Mistletoe and Spearmint. Will you get both of these festive holiday flavors before they're gone?

Following a cold and snowy November, the last month of the year is upon us. The Christmas holidays are approaching, and with Hogsmeade remaining closed, people are scrambling to find the perfect gifts for those important people in their lives in other places. Diagon Alley remains croweded at any time that the shops are open, and a Goblin Market has popped up in Wales for the season. It's a perfect opportunity to take care of that shopping before it's too late. It's a perfect time of year to begin to put the past behind us and look forward to the future. Some may be apprehensive, but everyone has the same question: what will the new year bring?

Maeve was not going to let her sixth month of pregnancy get in the way of doing what she needed to do. Just because she was approximately 85x her normal girth didn’t mean she was useless. In fact she noted the looks of alarm she was given by the men who wanted her to sit down and maybe rest a little and considered some later revenge. Preferably when she was on maternity leave and wouldn’t have to suffer their pouting.

It was for this reason that she was glad to be accompanied by Willa, for as a woman she was at least sensible to the fact that pregnancy did not spell the end of a woman’s life. All the same even Willa seemed wary of her growing stomach which only encouraged Maeve to lengthen her strides as they crossed the ground to reach Hogwarts castle.

“Hurry up!” She said, waving at Willa to pick up the pace. It was unfair since the one concession she had made to the younger woman was that she could carry the majority of their supplies. Even minimized and packed in a case they were more than a little heavy.

When they reached the courtyard they found it had been cleared earlier that morning but with the heavy snows continuing to fall it was already starting to pile up again. It also made the worn stones something of a deadly skating rink and after a skid Maeve slowed her pace, picking her way across until she reached the doors. When they did not immediately open to her august presence she lifted her fist and began to pound on them.

“Open up, it is freezing out here!” There were at least five people who would kill her if she caught cold and Maeve was not intending to give them the satisfaction.

“You realize that you are insane, yes?” Willa said as she closed the space between she and Maeve. She never should have agreed to this venture knowing that the woman was as pregnant as she was. They shouldn’t have been traipsing around in the snow. Maeve should’ve been home in front of a fire and Willa should’ve been back at the hospital for her third or fourth twelve hour shift in as many days. She was honestly losing count a this point. Disasters like this didn’t leave anybody faring particularly well.

“Perhaps this is a sign that we ought to just turn back.” That didn’t seem to her like a completely terrible idea. Normally she would’ve suggested they go get some tea or something, but with the village closed she was really just suggesting that they leave altogether. Somehow she imagined that Maeve would not accept that request and Will nearly groaned as she finally came to a stop just beside the other woman in perfect time for the doors to swing open for her to do even more walking. She couldn’t help but sigh as she picked up the bags again and press forward.

She wasn’t exactly sure what they were going to find, but she was willing to bet more than a couple of people were going to need their attention that afternoon. Willa had been brewing pepper up for days at this point, refreshing her personal stores for trips like these. She had the set up and ingredients necessary form her other – business ventures and Maeve either knew and didn’t feel like asking at all or hadn’t thought on it. Knowing how smart she considered the other woman the be, she guessed it was the former.

“I don’t believe in insanity,” Maeve said tartly. That this was categorically not true was beside the point. The fact was that going outside in a snow storm wasn’t insanity, it was merely ill advised, and really, it was not the worst thing she’d ever done. At least she’d never harboured notions of taking her show on the road and living out of a wagon for five years.

She liked having a house, and a proper bed, and a kitchen even if Caradoc hardly let her use it. Most of all she loved having her privacy and the ability to just tune out of the world if she needed to. They were the things that the people currently being forced to make their homes at Hogwarts were lacking. They had food and shelter, but without those personalized touches life was not what it could be.

“You didn’t have to come with me,” she pointed out, “I could have brought a cadre of trainees. You know how they adore field trips. “ And getting lost on field trips, of course.

At least it was warm in side the castle. Maeve stopped to kick the snow off her boots just inside the doors and looked around to see if anyone was going to come great them. No one popped up which meant they’d have to find their own way around. “Let’s go to the Great Hall, first. We can get directions to where the worst off are. On our way we’ll stock up their supply of Pepper Up.”

“But if I wasn’t here with you, I’d have to be home and home is the worst place to be in a time of crisis.” She was here because she wanted to be, not because she was required to be. That seemed like an important distinction to make.

Being inside helped, there was less wind and les oppressive sort of cold, the chill in the air was still unmistakeable though. It also just felt – cold. She remembered the castle as some place much warmer, much more pleasant, much more welcoming. Even now when it was full again, people breathing life back into it, it felt devoid of anything related to the living. It was cold and I was broken. And it made her uncomfortable. And the idea of entering the Great Hall made it that much worse, but she made the turn and walked that way anyways, past the great staircase and through the grand doors, unsure what she was meant to expect.

This wasn’t it though.

There were tents pitched beneath the enchanted sky, swirling with the ugly gray that accompanied snowstorms. Not for protection, but for privacy. People were sitting around make-shift tables playing exploding snap, others were laid up on cots reading or napping. It seemed like it might’ve been fun at some point before the novelty of it all wore off. But it seemed that the novelty had certainly worn off now.

“Afternoon, gentleman.” She said to a pair of men who looked up and over at them when they walked inside. “Healer contingent from St. Mungo’s.” She clarified for them, they were clearly not interested in outsiders interrupting their days, even in their makeshift homes. One of them turned away, then the other shrugged and turned away as well. “Would either of you care to enlighten us as to where we might be needed?” She probed, honestly unsure if either if the was going to tunr around.

“Depends if you have enough alcohol to forget there is a crisis,” Maeve pointed out. Willa could still drink even if Maeve couldn’t which she felt was reason enough to break out the good fire whiskey instead of letting it gather dust. Maeve glanced at Willa again and wondered if she even had good firewhiskey—maybe she’d get her something for Christmas.

Maeve wondered what sort of Christmas they had to look forward too here. It probably wasn’t the one they wanted. The repairs to Hogsmeade were being hampered by the heavy snows and poor weather. It would be a very long time before they could go home again. Maybe something could be arranged, a fundraiser to support a banquet for the afflicted perhaps. She added yet another thing to her mental list which felt like it was growing heavier by the day.

Maeve thought maybe they ought to seek out Dumbledore and ask for his direction but of course he wasn’t anywhere to be seen. Instead there were two men who had been engaged in some betting game on a stool but now were staring at Willa and herself.

“OI, do I look like I need a healer?” The first of the men asked.

“Speak for yourself—I wouldn’t mind an examination from this lass.” He leered at Willa, his eyes raking over her.

Maeve glared at him. “You seem healthy enough.” She nodded instead to where there was an older woman and some children. “Why don’t we start over there instead?” She led the way towards the matron and her wards, ignoring the hot glares of the two men they had just left. Already she could seen the puffy eyes and red noses that signified work. Perfect.

As much fun as the men in the makeshift tent city seemed to be, Willa was – less than amused by their antics so far and it seemed like Maeve was about there was well. Willa had just sort of stood there, wondering if he’d really said what she thought he just said before Maeve stepped in. And she was thankful for that as she turned to follow the blonde woman toward a group of people who looked like they had just the right amount wrong with them to make her life interesting.

“Well that certainly looks like it’s a problem.” She said, crouching down in front of a little boy who’d been staring up at her wide-eyed from next to his mother who also looked like she was a bit under the weather. Willa smiled though, “Is your nose running?” She said to the little boy now that she was eye-level with him. He just looked at her and nodded. “Well then you better go and catch it, shouldn’t you?” She said, leaning in and speaking quietly enough that he and mom could hear her but nobody else could. He thought about it for a second before he smiled, ” ‘snot like that.” He said exasperatedly. And Willa just put a hand on her hip and looked at him, “Well snot is right.” She said, and he smiled again before she stood up to her full height. Kids were sometimes much, much easier to deal with than parents. And they often didn’t get people that were willing to get on their level.

“Couple of days? Just general runny noses and tickles in the throat from this little guy?” She asked the woman standing next to him, “And maybe you too, by the looks of it. Are you feeling okay?” She tried to sound as nice about it as she could. She always had a hard time with bedside manner but she was – improving. Slightly. Hopefully.

“I think we’ve probably got something to fix the both of you up.” She said glancing back at Maeve, before she got back on the level of the little boy, this time kneeling before him on the stone tile of the great hall where she’d eaten meals every day for years. That was – depressing. “My name is Healer Cresswell and I’m going to get you something that’ll make you feel better, okay?”
