As he scoped out the table situation in the library, Finn made his way to a table that would be big enough for all three of the Clarke triplets. He didn't see either of his sisters, which meant he was the first one.

Which was maybe a little surprising, if you considered how he was possibly the least stressed about their upcoming O.W.L.s. But only because he'd started studying in September, thanks to some questionably good advice from an older student.

Finn dropped the heavy bag on the floor next to a chair and dropped himself into the chair. He glanced around again, just double-checking for any other redheads, then pulled out a sheaf of paper and started rifling through his notes.
Lydia, surprising to no one, had not been studying for her OWLs since September. Some revision may have begun around November, but it was pretty minimal and her attempts were quickly interrupted by the Christmas holidays. Plus, the music room called to her most of the time. She was powerless to resist the draw an open, full-of-instruments, wonderful room like that had.

But by now it had really hit her that these exams were important. Probably not as much as they would be if she wasn't going to be a world-famous musician one day (no, she wasn't considering a back-up plan), but that didn't mean she wanted to fail them all. Because that would be embarrassing. Having to resit them later or getting kicked out because she was a failure? What would people think of her?

It was too horrible to think about.

She had no expectations she would get all O's at this point. Just...absolutely no failing.

Finally, carrying a bag full of books and notebooks in tow, she found Finn at a table in the library. No Matilda yet? Lydia was surprised she'd made it before her sister did, but she'd probably be along shortly.

"Ugh, let's get this over with," she said, dropping her own bag unceremoniously on the floor before taking a seat. The sooner she could cram all this knowledge in her head, the better. Then she could get back to something she actually enjoyed.
