Short Description (50 words max): Sugar, sunshine, and surf.
Long Description (200 words min):

Having returned to Scotland from her beloved California to resume direct management of Honeydukes, Peyton has brought the sun and surf back with her. Upon entering the store, customers find themselves stepping onto a thick blanket of sand, rather than the expected stone or wood. Emblazoned on all four walls is a mural of a beach, which meets a startlingly lifelike ocean at the back of the store; indeed, real waves crash against the sand there, allowing patrons to dip their toes into the water if they wish. Overhead, one can see a clear blue sky with a bright yellow sun, dotted with sea gulls that soar across the ceiling’s expanse.

The room seems to radiate with perpetual warmth (never melting any of the chocolate, naturally), and instead of music, one can hear the crash of the surf and the cries of the sea birds. Surfboards can be found leaning against shelves or buried halfway in the sand; in fact, one board (a bright, raucous orange color) serves as the main counter, behind which one can often see the shop’s owner: a friendly, energetic blonde with a loud American accent.

Besides the obvious change of scenery, residents and visitors of Hogsmeade will find all of the familiar necessities at Honeydukes Sweet Shoppe. Freestanding shelves (so as not to mar the image of the mural) take up much of the large store’s floor space, offering everything from lollipops and chocolate frogs to Bertie Botts and licorice wands. One rack contains a large quantity of a curious sweet: the shop keeper’s personal favorite, a long strip of white paper covered in blue, pink, and yellow dots of sugar called candy buttons.

The scent of vanilla, chocolate, and cinnamon mingle in the air—an indication of the fresh, homemade treats that can be found throughout the shop. One long display case to the right holds over fifty varieties of fudge, all made on site. Not less than ten large barrels in the back left corner of the shop hold different flavors of homemade salt water taffy and a basket of freshly baked cookies sits beside the cash register, just one knut apiece. Hot chocolate and butterbeer, as well as coffee and tea, are available for patrons, and a few scattered picnic tables with large, brightly-colored umbrellas provide a respite from shopping near the ocean's shoreline.

What purpose will this shop serve other than selling things and being the home of your character? Why would people want to RP there just for fun?

Since Honeydukes is such a well-established, beloved location in canon, I'd love to make it an active part of Elsewhere again. The unusual beachfront scenery, revived from Peyton's first stint as Honeydukes' manager, should provide a unique RP experience for the Hogwarts crowd and Elsewhere characters, and I'd like to host events—parties, live music, rallies, etc.—there to keep things interesting. Peyton is sympathetic to the Resistance, and is happy to play host to Resistance members or provide a safe house, should the need arise.
