Grounds Have a case of cabin castle fever? Best to take a break from all the stone corridors and go hang out by the lake, or explore the expansive school grounds. Don't forgive to send your regards to Bartholomew Henry!

Default The Boathouse


Image Credit: Felixir


Every 1st September, new first years arrive at Hogwarts via boat, traveling from the outskirts of Hogsmeade, across the lake, and into the boathouse. This structure stands, logically enough, at the edge of the lake, and can be reached via a pathway from the courtyard, consisting of a long and winding stairway down the cliff face. A hidden passageway accessible from the inside of the boathouse leads up through the cliff itself, and emerges onto a patch of lawn which lies in the shadow of the castle.

All of the Hogwarts boats are stored here when not in use. You are free to take them out onto the lake, as long as you have permission from the groundskeeper to do so. Everything you might need for a trip out in the boats is hanging up around the walls, including oars and life jackets. Be sure to put everything back where you found it once you're done with it. Including - and especially - the boats themselves.

Thanks to the efforts of Logan and Ezra, Anna knew that she would not drown in the shallow parts of the lack near the dock and boathouse. Still did not mean that she was ready to go diving into deeper waters and try to keep up with the grindylows and merpeople, but she was confident that she would no longer sink to the bottom and could at least orientate herself to the surface and hold her head above water where her feet could not touch the bottom.

And, truth be told, she DID really want to try and swim with the grindylows and merpeople but that would be a dream to accomplish another day.

Shoes off and feet dangling over the edge of the dock within the boathouse itself, Anna lightly traced her pointed toes over the surface of the water and enjoyed the lake's cool caress. It really was the perfect little view, the way that the front side of the boathouse opened up to the lake itself and almost created a sort of frame around the scene. She wasn't so sure about taking a boat out onto the lake today, though she wouldn't be opposed to it either, but actually had another thought in mind as was indicated by the little beaded bag situated just off to her left. Now she just needed to wait for one of her heroic Gryffindor swimming instructors to arrive and help her out - AND she had brought some peanut butter snacks!

Even though that one time at the boathouse had worked out okay, Ezra was still a little bit wary about hanging around here. He really didn't want a repeat of that. Logan had done most of the saving anyway, and even though the often impulsive Ezra was confident he could help more this time, he didn't actually want to find out.

So, hopefully sticking to the dry land today. And also not falling on his face down the stairs.

Upon successfully reaching the boathouse, he immediately spotted her on the dock, her feet in the water. Well...maybe a little water was okay. So long as they didn't fall in. So he kicked off his shoes and socks, stuffed his socks into his shoes, and left them there where the dock met the shore.

"Fancy seeing you here," he said with a grin, taking a seat beside her and letting his feet down into the cool water.

Not to worry! No plans to swim today and Anna had even reminded herself not to tempt fake by walking along the edge as if it were a balance beam either - everyone knew she did not have the best balance to begin with so best not play with fire. Which was, unironically, not something she was good at doing either and had burnt the tips of her fingers putting out candles. The gentle, but sturdy, creak of the dock was the first indication that she was no longer alone and the confirmation with the comforting voice that followed tickled her cheeks into lifting her lips into the brightest of smiles. "Perhaps I should have dressed up more," she laughed while fluffing her curls a bit with her hands and pointing her toes as she stretched her legs forward. Obviously the next reasonable motion was to slip her arm through his, rest her hand over his, and scoot just a bit closer to him while still enjoying the way the light danced over the water akin to little light sprites. "Thanks for coming. I brought snacks and a kind-of activity I was hoping you could help me with," she explained while lowering her legs down and toes dipped back into the water when a parallel thought crossed her mind and simply had to be voiced before giving him further details about what she had planned. "Hey...do you think the lake has those Dr. Kiss Fish in them?"

Dressed up? He wasn't certain what she meant. Should he have dressed up more too, even though they were hanging out near the lake? Or maybe he should've dressed down with shorter trousers or something, considering the ends of his trouser legs were getting wet with his feet in the water. He could have rolled them up beforehand (and his mum probably would've told him to), but he didn't mind. He'd just throw them in the laundry later and they'd be good as new. "Nah, I think you look great." But that was always the case. And everything was even better when her hand was on his.

The snacks and the activity were intriguing, but before Ezra could ask for more info...the conversation took a turn. And that turn led his thoughts into a different turn.

Ever since the spin the bottle game at the beginning of term, and especially after he and Bronwen had kissed, he'd had...a lot of thoughts. A multitude of confusing thoughts. And one of those thoughts included...what would it be like to kiss Anna?

Sitting so close together like this... he...

Uh.

He forced himself to look out at the water and managed to respond, "The...uh, the what fish?"

Whether he understood her humor regarding the expression of 'fancy' was rather inconsequential in light of his compliment. Words that brightened her smile and added to the twinkles in her eye. "And you are exceedingly kind." And wearing that handsome smile that truly suited him. Not that he ever needed to pretend to be happy around her all the time and not allowed to feel other feelings - she could tell when his smile wasn't reaching his eyes - but it always gave her the good sort of tingles when he worse THAT smile. A smile was affection winking at you, after all! Or so she had read somewhere the other day. "AND I appreciate you tremendously."

Continuing to swing her legs lightly, toes painting the surface of the water below with chaotic ripples, Anna searched for any traces of aquatic life that may have been inspired to come greet since their gentle disturbances to the water's surface. As such, she was oblivious to any changes to his posture or any nervous darting of the eyes or blinking, perhaps a silent gulp of air while swallowing back his thoughts...though maybe there was a slight twitch and tightening of his fingers that were woven together with hers. Never would it have ever crossed her mind that anyooooone would think such thoughts about her either and thus she charged forward in her naive ignorance. "Dr. Kiss Fish," she repeated while giving the water as much of a kick as she could with her toes...which was not the best of ideas since she did slip a little bit but thankfully was easily able to catch herself by her free hand and gripping his more securely. Not to worry, no slipping in here and no more kicking! "Supposed to feel really nice but also can tickle a little," she explained while slightly repositioning herself and peeking up at him with a dreamy sort of look about her doe eyes. "And after...you feel rejuvenated and reinvigorated...and a little like someone has cast a Featherlight Charm on your feet."

The joke had indeed gone over his head. If he'd made the connection, he probably would have chuckled at her humor. But it was fine since his comment got her to smile like that, so maybe missing the joke was worth it. Ezra smiled at her kind words in turn, though the change in topic of conversation, and the turn his thoughts had taken, took most of his focus from dwelling on it now.

His eyes were still on the water until he felt a spike of panic when Anna wobbled suddenly, and he gripped her hand tighter. Thankfully, she did not fall in this time, but Merlin... Maybe they were tempting fate sitting on the docks like this, but...he did like sitting here with her. So long as she didn't kick the water like that again, hopefully they'd be okay.

Her explanation of the fish didn't fully click in his mind until she mentioned the feet. Oh! Now he finally understood. He was pretty sure he'd seen a video before about people sticking their feet in a tank of fish. He'd never heard it called that before - actually, he didn't know what the real term for it was anyway - but at least they were on the same wavelength now. "Oh, I see. I've never seen them in the lake before. But the lake's pretty big, so I guess they could be." Would they be near the surface if they were? He had no idea.

She was OKAY! Promise. Balance restore and her hand now positioned even more snuggly within his, Anna resumed LIGHTLY swinging her feet and skipping just the tips of her toes over the surface of the water. The cool water was a pleasant juxtaposition to the warmth rippling out from her palm nestled against Ezra's.

"I haven't either," she nodded. "Though...just because you've never seen something somewhere doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't exist." A sentiment that had become an intimate of mantra for the sixteen year old recently and, almost, had her reconsidering going home for the holidays. Complicated and icky feelings that she attested to being a misunderstanding of tone and intention from ink and parchment. Such thoughts caused her to fall uncharacteristically quiet for an extended moment as her eyes shifted away from gazing up at Ezra to out over the lake. "I'm not sure what made me think of them just now...maybe I came across them in a bit of reading or maybe I..." she murmured to break the silence that had settled over the peaceful (but unintentionally awkward?) scene. "Hey...Ezra?" she said to interrupt her previous thought and swing her head back around to look at him again with a focused gazed with relaxed doe eyes and a slightly straightened posture. "...what...what is your earliest memory?"

"...what...what is your earliest memory?"
Slowly he relaxed again, now that there seemed less chance of her careening off the dock. He glanced at her, just to make sure, before his eyes turned to scan the lake again.

"That's true," Ezra agreed. Those fish certainly could be out in the lake somewhere. He hadn't explored every inch of the lake, after all, so there were probably lots of creatures in there that he didn't know were there, even if there were a number of species they did know about, like grindylows and merpeople and the giant squid.

Lost in that thought for a moment, he hardly noticed the silence until she spoke again, her voice suddenly quieter. He looked over at her as she trailed off and then seemed to interrupt herself with another question, his eyes meeting hers.

The subject change was another he didn't expect, but that wasn't unusual when talking with Anna. This did seem...a little different than usual though. Or perhaps that was just his imagination?

Regardless, a thoughtful look crossed his face as he considered the question. His earliest memory? "I think... Maybe the time when I was chased by a goose? I think I was around three or four." He wasn't sure if that was actually his earliest memory, but it was the one that came to mind first. "Why? What's yours?"

She nodded in agreement, though that had a lot less to do with agreeing with Ezra's agreement and a whole lot more with her validating a hope of which she most desperately clung to. Just because mum never wanted to talk about it, about him, and Anna had never once seen so much as a picture did not mean that he never existed - the Hufflepuffle herself was at least proof of that much, right?
...right?
"...three...or four..." she smiled, something shifting in her eyes while her gazed lingered for a moment or two longer before she looked away again. "...of course, that's...that's the normal thing...um...I mean...wow, geese can be pretty aggressive...but that is because they are territorial and protective creatures. Maybe you unknowingly were playing close to a nest or eggs...real pity we cannot speak goose so we could tell them we mean no harm." She tried to laugh it off, even doing so much as to turn her head back to him though the laugh had clearly not reached her eyes. She thought she had played it all off well enough so maybe they could shift to discussing what creatures they wished they could speak with and the moral ramifications of Animalis Fidelis...but her cheeks were turning red for entirely different reasons than usual and this particular shade of red even seemed to be creeping to her nose. "...eight? Waking up in a room full of flowers with my mom holding my hand. That was the day I got my chocolate scented chocolate frog plushie...still smells to this day too. Sometimes...I think I may have glimpses from when I was six or seven...maybe...but..I don't feel confident that I am actually remembering them or...if I only do from pictures to fill in gaps..." Like she did with many 'memories' she would share and speak to. "I do just have a really terrible memory though, everyone knows that."

He wasn't sure if he was imagining it, but it felt like this conversation had taken a turn. The atmosphere wasn't as lighthearted as it had been earlier, and it wasn't necessarily a bad thing; it was just unexpected.

Ezra was puzzled by the initial focus on the age he'd guessed at for the memory, but then came the focus on the goose. The analysis she gave was probably similar to what his dad or mum had said at the time, that the animal was probably protecting something since he hadn't intentionally tried to provoke it at the time. "Yeah, I think I was trying to see if I could pet it or something," he said with a small smile in response to her laugh, though even the laugh sounded a little...off? At least, not one he was used to hearing from her.

An eyebrow rose at her answer to her earliest memory. Eight years old? That seemed...well, he wasn't sure if he could call it odd. He wasn't an expert on childhood development and memory, so maybe that was...not uncommon, for lack of a better term. But it was unexpected to him. And maybe a little concerning? Especially with how different she seemed when talking about it. "Have you seen a healer about it?" Maybe that was a stupid question. Considering how long she'd been dealing with it, she probably had. But he wasn't sure what else to say.

A turn had been taken and Anna may be a few minutes and triggers away from realizing just how hard a turn and overcorrecting things with yet another sharp turn. So many turns...they were going to get dizzy. She kind of already felt dizzy and her fingers squeezed his hand as a sort of grounding gesture - warm tingly palm to warm tingly palm.

"I completely understand why," she nodded softly. "Their feathers look so lustrous and soft AND the way water just rolled right off their backs is rather majestic." All waterfowl had that appeal to them. She really admired them too for looking so elegant and poised above the water whereas beneath they were working rigorously with their adorable webbed feet. She kind of wished that there was a flock of geese on the lake now...would be a welcomed peaceful distraction and she had read that they were seen as harbingers of change, migration, and transitions.

His pause, no matter how short it was in reality as opposed to how it felt, was a clear enough indication that her apprehensions and concerns were warranted and even validated...though she wasn't sure that such sentiments were comforting. It felt the complete opposite as her stomach dropped and she took an audible deep breath. "Yeah," she nodded while wiping her suddenly very itchy and stinging eyes with the knuckle of her index finger. Very stinging and maybe even watering a little. "Professor Ameliorating Te--- Professor Feirgrund has assigned me two types of journaling to help with some things...a dream one and then a notebook to write things down throughout the day to help me remember things...would be great if my remembrall worked to help too but..." She paused briefly as her voice every so slightly cracked and she wiped her agitated eyes once again. "The dream journal is...kind of helping with the daymares and night terrors...I think...maybe..."

He squeezed her hand gently in return, trying to offer whatever reassurance he could. "Yeah, I'm sure that was why." Though his young child brain wouldn't have put it so eloquently. The thought running through his head at the time was probably something more along the lines of "Birdy!!" But at least it taught him the lesson not to try to pet wild animals. Not that it had fully sunk in the first time. Sometimes it took a few experiences for the learning to actually stick.

Ezra's focus was entirely on her now instead of the lake, so he noticed her wiping at her eyes. So, sort of instinctively, he released her hand to slip his arm around her waist, hoping that might offer a little more comfort and reassurance. Almost like a side-hug. He listened as she mentioned...Professor who now? Oh. Feirgrund. Right, that made sense. And it seemed like a good suggestion, writing things like that down. "I'm glad it seems to be helping." Even if she sounded really uncertain about that assessment. "Do you think...talking would help too?" Whether with him or Professor Feirgrund or someone else, if she felt comfortable enough doing so. Or maybe that was already part of the assignment, if the Healer read the journal at certain points. He just wanted to find a way to help if that was possible.

Anna could understand that motivation. It was one small reason why she had teamed up with Aurora to co-parent their own pygmy puff. Sure, the primary reason for that was that Aurora wanted one but had not received the go ahead from home sooooooo cue Anna offering to help with that and, once again, using galleons that ought to have been used on textbooks on pygmy puff care. The scolding back home had been money will spent in her opinion. Sometimes she wished her hair was more silky to it felt a little softer when she played with it and tugged on her curls. It did sort of feel more silky when she straightened it...but whenever she did that she felt less like herself. Ezra's hair looked like it was incredibly soft to the touch though.

Her eyes briefly widened when his arm moved around her, pulling her closer to him so they fit together even more like puzzle pieces, but soon relaxed and smiled a little wider before she leaned her head on his shoulder. She did miss the feeling of his hand in hers, her palm tinglingly with phantom warmth, and hugged her own middle so her hand could rest on top of his instead. Hopefully her dandelion fluff curls weren't tickling his face too much, especially when she nodded her head in confirmation of things helping a little. "I thought that simply taking some Dreamless Sleep Potions or some vials of Draught of Peace would be the solution but...I am actually quite glad for the alternative solutions," she explained softly, her arm protesting its current position since she was leaning one direction (on Ezra) but streatching another (towards the side of the boathouse). Moving her arm, Anna reciprocated his gesture with both her arms around his middle. "I...think so..." she nodded again. Though maybe that was more to do with the person she was talking to being the source of said alievation rather than her situation feeling it. "...but...part of the problem is that I don't always know where to even begin. I mean...what do you even say when you wake up or stop zoning out in class and there are tears clinging to your lashes and you have no idea why you are feeling like parts of you are broken or...maybe even worse...missing...so you just know that you are, in fact, as divergent from your peers as you feared you were?" Her eyes were stinging a little again, but rather than move her arms so she could wipe her eyes she instead moved her head to sort of nuzzle his shoulder like a kneazle looking for attention - or comfort, as was this Hufflepuffle's situation.
