Default The Giant Treehouse



Off to one side of the lake is a copse of trees that arch so high up in the sky, it's nearly impossible to see where their leafy tops end. But at the bottom of one is a rope ladder and a winding wooden staircase that wraps around the thickest trunk of the trees and leads up into the sky.

If you dare to ascend the ladder or the staircase, you'll be rewarded by entering the Giant Treehouse, which looks something like a cross between a log cabin and a miniature Hogwarts castle. The treehouse has a large veranda with rocking chairs on it and is completely surrounding and supported by the trunks of at least three trees, so it feels fairly stable even though it's suspended waaaaaaaaaay up in the air. The inside of the treehouse contains a few empty rooms, a tower, and a loft, but there are pillows and blankets, spare bits of parchment, ink and quills, and a bucket on a rope and pulley that goes all the way to the bottom of the tree. The treehouse looks (and smells!) brand-new, with nice new windows and fairy lights that illuminate the treehouse at dusktime.

No one said Williamson didn't still have the heart of a kid sometimes. He built this just for you.

And don't wory about falling out of the treehouse; there are a LOT of spells protecting and supporting the giant treehouse. If you were to fall from the treehouse or its platform, your fall would be slowed by magic. Plus, the ground below the treehouse has been charmed to feel like the equivalent of a squishy gym mat. Be careful though; too much horseplay will result in the grumpy groundskeeper shutting things down or turning this into his personal fort where kids can't find him.

"No." It was a cold response, and a firm one, but nothing nicer was coming, because Ash wasn't a nice person, not even on her good days. Atlas shouldn't hold his breath. Atlas could take his pet out for a walk or whatever. He could share the treehouse. They could even have a conversation if he was feeling nice and/or stupid. But she was absolutely not leaving. This was a safe place for her and she was happy. What was the deal with Atlas Flamsteed anyway? Why did he hate her so much? Whatever. He could get in line after Cambridge, James, and Gemma. He could get the enemy starter kit, full of notes to gossip about her, mean insults to say, and things to remind himself that it was okay to hate her because she wasn't a real person with feelings and motives anyway.

"I'm drawing Lisa right now, and I'm not leaving until I'm done." She held up her drawing. "See? I'm only halfway." She smiled briefly. Not at Atlas though. Only for Lisa. She could paint faster, but the more he wanted her to get out of his way, the less she wanted to do so. And she was here first. If he wanted to avoid her, her could go somewhere else. "Is it extremely important that I leave right now? Because explosions count as reasons I should leave. You hating me does not count." And judging by his tone of voice, there were no explosions coming. She didn't even switch to a more tense posture, because he wasn't worth ruining her day over.
It was funny how often direct and rude seemed to overlap. What Atlas felt was rude was when people made small talk and beat around the bush to stall or soften the blow before getting to the point. It felt like a waste of everyone's time and the more polite thing would to be quick and efficient. So...Atlas was being that just now.

Did he like the answer?

No.

But it was what it was.

Not wanting to climb all the way back down, Atlas looked at his hand and the glimpses of blue fur peeking out through his fingers and sighed before reluctantly climbing the rest of the way up and climbed into the treehouse. But on the other side, away from Ashley and her art. But mostly away from her and her hostility.

"It's a nice drawing," he offered before settling himself into a corner with his back to her and his feet pressed up against the wooden walls to make a pair of rudimentary walls with his legs. "No. I just don't enjoy being in your presence. You make strong accusations and judge people on things you could not even begin to understand." He was simply answering her questions and doing so honestly. His tone was mostly innocent, but there was a fair bit of frustration behind his words. That mostly showed on his face, which was facing away from her right now so it wasn't something she would be able to see. He was instead watching as Araneus slowly crawled out of his palm and to the floor of the treehouse. "I don't like you, but I don't hate you."

"Mhmm." Ash was continuing with her relaxing drawing, preferring not to look at Atlas. He was much less relaxing than her art. Ash was painting a little bit of the fountain when- didn't Nem do this same thing to her? The thing where you just act super unconcerned and ignore people? Well, Ash was improving at it, but perhaps in this situation it was better to remain engaged in the conversation. And not act exactly like Nem. Maybe.

"That's alright. There are like, ten wizards who say they like to talk to me and five who I know don't lie about it. That's enough, I suppose." It really wasn't, but she said that it was and he better believe it.

"I don't judge people I don't know. I judge institutions and people I do know. Is this about that ill-fated therapy session? I don't hate you and your family or whatever." If that's why he didn't like her. Individual government workers were fine. But together, they made an institution that failed her completely.

"How do you know I can't understand?" There was the first emotion in her voice, subtle but there. It was unclear which emotion it was. Maybe anger. Maybe sadness. Maybe disappointment. Maybe pain. Who knew? Not Ash, and probably not Atlas. But it was the first time she had showed any emotion, so that comment must have struck a nerve.

Because Ash. Was. Pretty. Sure. That. She. Could. Understand. How did he know that she didn't know what she was talking about?

"Is that opinion about me not based off of things that you don't understand yet?"

Because Atlas knew almost nothing about her, not even about her easy-to-find past. He had no idea why she was the way she was. So maybe neither of them should be making assumptions. Just a thought.

Atlas would never, not even fleetingly, compare her to Nemesis Upstead.

Smiling a little as Araneus crawled around, smiling because his familiar seemed to enjoy being out of the barns and somewhere where she could stretch all of her limbs...and also seemed to have taken a keen interest into a beetle that was scurrying nearby. At least her two most forefront legs were in defense position.

"How do you know they are lying?" asks politely while still keeping an eye on Araneus. He drew no conclusions from this himself, but it was curious how she was so certain of this. Therefore...he wanted to know what empirical evidence she had to back the claims. He thought he had empirical evidence about one thing...turned out he had been wrong. Being 12 was confusing. Good thing he was only 12 for another couple of months and then he could just reset at 13.

"...but you don't know those institutions either, you only assume to," he retorted rather prickly. How did he know she did not understand? Everything about her radiated it. It was like she was a sun fueled by ignorance and he had gotten too close and her words had burned him. "And in judging those ... you are judging the people that make them and work tirelessly to maintain them and try to improve things. You say these things failed you...well none of this was even about you. Or me. It was greater than all of us. Greater than these so-called failed institutions who were bested because the other side was methodical and studied their targets. They...they took dad...and replaced him with someone ...we didn't know dad was gone until...until..." He wasn't even sure until when...or when the switch had been made between the fake!dad and the Imperio'd!dad. That was a whole therapy session to be had. "...and tortured him...for ... along time...two years or more maybe ... trying to get information out of him ..."

He didn't care that she suddenly seemed hurt by whatever it was he had said, she deserved it with all her sweeping accusations and finger pointing. It was a very human reaction, he knew that, in trying to make sense of something that made no sense. But it didn't make her right. It just made her petty as far as this Gryffindor was concerned.

"How do I know you can't understand? Because it doesn't seem like you want to. Because the way you talk and act on these topics and with people you have never even met is all the empirical evidence I need."

Oh...look at that. Araneus had caught herself a snack. RIP the beetle.

Oh...look at that. Araneus had caught herself a snack. RIP the beetle.



"Because they aren't good at it. It's all 'hey Ash, how are you' until we have to partner up or I'm in danger. Then it's 'you're stupid and I can't believe you'd be so reckless even though you have no friends and your life is one big traumatic mess. I can't believe you'd be like this... etc.'" She rolled her eyes. What did they expect? "Everyone could be lying, but some people are super good at lying. So I just accept them as my friends and know I won't be able to tell the difference. But a lot of people aren't good at pretending. I guess I'd be one of those people." She heard how people talked to/about her. She watched how they looked at her. Most people did not smile at all when she entered a room. Instead they cheerfully turned away.

"No, I'm not judging the people who run the institutions and try to fix them. I'm sure the majority of people working there are great and fine and awesome etcetera. But the institutions still have flaws, don't they? And yeah, it's not about me or you. It's about the wizarding world as a whole, and I would say that our trauma reflects that. And I'm not going to say that it's anyone's fault the institution failed, but there have got to be cracks somewhere. Maybe in the chain of command. If a few people at the top are bad or mind-controlled, then they have way too much power. Maybe that's it. Maybe it's something else. I don't know."

"I'm sorry about your dad." Ash could guess that Atlas was all mad because he thought of his dad whenever she complained about the government. But she thought he should take her side on this- it didn't seem all that hard to kidnap, subtly get rid of, or corrupt good people at the ministry. And it seemed really super hard to get rid of bad people at the top. That was another problem. She thought this could be fixed if individuals had more power, but whatever. Maybe it was better to not mention that right now.

Ash was back to her usual, hiding all emotions until they explode, trying to embody Nem with her absolute calm that she was trying to maintain really hard.

"mhhhm. And how do you know that I have never had enough empirical evidence to know that something went really wrong in the government?" Because it seemed pretty clear. Ahem. The school got taken over for a year. Many important people got kidnapped. Bad people became in charge of the government. And the government as a whole kinda just stayed there. It was a resistance group that finally got people to come to Hogwarts. Ash didn't forget.

"And why do you think I think the worst case scenario has happened every time? Why do you think I'm, I don't know, like this?" Ash was curious. Did he think she was born a pessimist? Because she... hadn't been. She was born happy, and every year she just went downhill. "And do you really have enough empirical evidence to say that I don't want to understand?" To write her off as ignorant and hopeless. To know that she couldn't or wouldn't understand.

Ash was interested. It showed. Here was someone actually willing to admit how much he didn't like her and why... she could actually use this information. It was reasonable to bet that Atlas did not like her for the same reasons as a bunch of other people. Gemma, for example. Another good thing about this is that she now knew she wasn't wrong when she assumed everyone thought she was stupid. She KNEW she wasn't liked. Now she could stick her tongue out at all the people reassuring her that they loved her while secretly disliking her. She was onto them. So she was happy to let Atlas continue on his unnecessarily philosophical speech about how he was better than her, so long as he kept feeding her information like this.

"Do you think you're better than me?" Ash really wanted to know. This was so fascinating. So fascinating she forgot to ask that question coldly.

Ohhhh, no. Not today.

Remy had seen this boy a few times before, he was a fellow Gryffindor from what she remembered, but she had never properly met him. And she certainly hadn't hoped for it to be on a day where she looked like this. She didn't want to meet anyone looking like a drowned rat. "Oh... hi there." Remy loosened her rigidness. "Yeah, I'm okay... I just..." Wasn't it obvious? "... got soaked, trying to remember the charm that dries clothes." Not that she'd even attempt it, but it was something she would take a note to look up in the library later.

The Gryffindor chuckled softly, trying to laugh off the situation, despite DYING INSIDE.
Fortunately for the first year, meeting him was probably a good thing when she looked like that since he didn't notice. At least not to the point where she looked worse for the wear than himself.

But apparently she was vain enough to want to dry her clothes. Or just uncomfortable. He glanced outward at the wet grounds a moment before looking back at her. "Oh. I think uh ... There's a hot air charm. But wouldn't it be better to wait until you get back to the castle. Since like then you only have to do it once." he also didn't really want to admit that he wasn't hundred percent certain of the incantation and he would have liked to check his book again. But using laziness as an excuse might work ??

Huh.

Hot air charm. Remy was glad someone was here to tell her that because those words hadn’t crossed her mind at all. She would’ve probably ended up casting incendio on herself! Nah, not really, although she couldn’t wait to learn that charm. The dangerous spells were much more fun.

Her clothing was starting to stick to her now and it felt HORRIBLE, causing a pouty expression on the Gryffindor’s face. She was a drama queen, okay? Remy followed the boys gaze to the grounds and then back to him with a sigh. It was still pouring down so they’d might as well make themselves comfortable here for a while.

Good idea.” Remy found a cushion inside the treehouse and let her backside fall into it. She knew instantly it would be very hard to get back up again. “Wanna hang out for a bit?” The little Gryffindor asked, hopefully not trapping the older student.

Remy started… “A - what was your name again?” Remy had pretended not to know, but of course, she knew that it was Apollo Adara-Stark. Ahem. “My name’s Remy.” Since she was sure he wouldn’t know her. She hadn’t been able to build up her REP yet.

Actually, she had never considered the question up until now. “I mean, you get to talk to them about what’s bothering you and you get to do fun stuff with them like going to Espresso Patronum for caramelattes.” See, Heath was very important to her.

Well. Claudine had certainly hoped that her questions would get the smol one to be quiet for a bit but definitely this bit of reasoning went down the drain. She winded up staaaring, too lost for words for a moment. Of course, her knowledge of the Muggle world wasn’t completely non-existent and she happened to know who Rapunzel was. But still… she was confused. “Flattered as I am, and I’m pretty sure Heath would be too but was that the name of the prince all along? I don’t remember him being named…” Keep in mind she’d never seen Tangled.
A special friend was someone you got to talk to about what’s bothering you and fun stuff like going to Espresso Patronum for what-a-what? Caramelattes? What were those? She scrunched her nose, glancing up at Claudine. “What’s a caramelatte?” Was it a coffee beverage of some sort? Whatever it was… it sounded very adult which Lisa was far from being that adult. She did like the idea of having someone to talk to exclusively about things and getting their advice. Did she kinda have a special friend?!? She bit her lip. She didn’t know. She had friends… “Did you guys choose each other as special friends?” How did this process work? She also remembered sifting through ‘applications’ for a one Minjae Yoon in her brother’s room. Whatever that meant… she wasn’t entirely sure. “Or was there an interview or application for it?

I don’t know if he had a name. I think most of the Princes had a name like Charming or something.” Whether or not they were charming was a different debate. “I think that’s what the Prince from Snow White was called.” A look of disgust crossed her face when she said Snow White and she rolled her eyes. ”I can’t STAND Snow White. Her voice is too sugary sweet and bleh. Makes me want to pull my hair out.

Lisa GASPED!

Claudine didn’t know what she was referring to!?!?

Does Hogwarts have a DVD player in their Muggle Studies classroom? You’ve got to see Tangled! I think YOU’LL love it.” Lisa would make sure that her new friend had seen it so she could understand the references.

Sixth year was a busy one. Between trying to get her grades up after the disaster that was the previous term, sending updates to her friends that hadn't returned to the castle, mirroring with her parents, and swooning over Kale Trent, Cecelia felt like she had no time to just...be. And what was worse was that she hadn't checked in with Sammy in ages. Too long. Way too long. She knew her younger brother was more than capable of getting along without her, but she missed him. And they needed to catch up. And so she set up a little picnic in one of the room's inside the treehouse complete with all his favorite snacks and little bluebell flames in jars to keep them cozy. It was a cute setup and she was pleased, and now she just needed to wait.

...And hope the paper airplane with the note inviting him here had actually reached him.

How did she explain what a caramelatte was? “Liquid chocolatey goodness,’’ Claudine said simply. “You should ask your mom or dad to take you to get one.” Because come on. This baby Ravenclaw’s taste buds were missing out on half of life! Speaking of which, this Snakette could use a caramelatte right now. Maybe she could go find Heath and ask him if he was up for making her one - oh man. Lisa had a lot of questions! “Um… well, he chose me first.’’ Her cheeks went a deep shade of pink. “No interviews or applications. I was just nice to him and sometime after he decided he wanted me to be his special friend.” Listen, Claudine was no good at explaining her love life.

The older girl listened with interest to Lisa’s words. “That’s what I thought. I mean, I do know a bit of the princesses but I really don’t remember the princes having names.“ What’s this? Lisa disliked Snow White? “But your personality seems to be sugary sweet,’’ she pointed out. “It’s not the same when it comes to comparing a voice but still.” Claudine had figured out this by observing Lisa: the child was smart, inquisitive and sweet. Maybe she was wrong, maybe she wasn’t.

Okaaaay.

There the Claw went being dramatic. Was she aiming to be an actress? “Umm… I think so?” It looked as though there would be a movie date happening. “How do you know I’ll love it?” Was this Tangled movie that good?

Caramelattes sounded DIVINE. Lisa listened to Claudine describe them. Her eyes grew wider and her stomach let out a weak grumble at the description. Mmm... she really wanted one badly. She nodded, making a mental note of asking her parents and telling her siblings to bring her there. “What about the house elves? Do you think they could make one for me if I asked really NICELY?” OOOOOOOOORR maybe she could experiment in the kitchens?

NO INTERVIEWS? And .... NO APPLICATIONS?

Well the poster that her brother had put up for a one Mr. Minjae Yoon was quite deceiving. Lisa had read it in Diagon Alley and automatically presumed that this was how the natural way the world worked. But apparently it was not so! No application or interviews were needed for special friends. She scrunched her nose. “How do you ensure they are qualified for the special friend role?” she asked perplexed. Besides wasn’t a date just a different from of interviewing?

Claudine didn’t remember either about the Prince’s names. See! She wasn’t going crazy. She wondered if other people thought of these things in the same way. Most likely. She raised BOTH eyebrows as Claudine said she was sweet and had a sugary sweet personality. “Only cause I’m in a good mood and you’re nice. I’m not nice to people who are mean to me...” she explained with a shrug. Besides she still was on her best behaviour. She had promised her eldest brother to.... regretfully ... BEHAVE. “Snow White’s voice is annoying and makes her sound like a damsel in distress. That’s my issue with her. I don’t want to be the princess waiting around for someone to save me. I want to be able to save myself. I aspire to be like Mulan or Megara or Merida. Or maybe all three!” With a dash of Belle but Lisa liked the M name theme that she was going with. Ooh! And she wanted Tiana’s work ethic.

How did Lisa know?

The little Ravenclaw chuckled. “Oh. Because.... I know! Come on let’s go watch it nowwwwwwww. I know you’ll love it. Trust me.

The little Ravenclaw chuckled. “Oh. Because.... I know! Come on let’s go watch it nowwwwwwww. I know you’ll love it. Trust me.


At the mention of House Elves, Claudine mentally chided herself for not thinking of the sweet, helpful creatures who could no doubt make caramelattes. Heath always made hers and so she’d never thought to ask them. But Lisa surely could! Okay. There was no chance for her to reply because {of course} there was another question. One which the sixth year had to stop and consider for just a bit. “Well…’’ she began slowly, considering her words. “You just know.” How could she make the smaller girl understand without making the explanation too complicated? “You know how sometimes you vibe with something? I mean, you really, really like something and know you want to keep this thing in your life? Well, it’s sort of like that. Sort of like how you adore baby Yoda and can’t see yourself disliking him.”

The Snakette couldn’t help but chuckle. “I’m not always but maybe like you, I’m in a good mood.” And she was only too happy to listen to Lisa’s reasoning about why there was dislike for Snow White. It turned out that Claudine could actually get behind most of that reasoning. “I mean, us strong, independent ladies need no one, right?” She felt you, little Ravenclaw. Independency… a trail Claudine long, long ago had made her own.

Wait.

What?

They were going to go watch that movie now? Uhh… this certainly was spontaneous but why not? She could work on this drawing after the movie. There was plenty of time left before Heath’s birthday, after all. “Okay,’’ the sixth year said as she got to her feet. “But we have to stop at the kitchen first. We should grab some caramelattes.”

And what was worse was that she hadn't checked in with Sammy in ages. Too long. Way too long. She knew her younger brother was more than capable of getting along without her, but she missed him. And they needed to catch up. And so she set up a little picnic in one of the room's inside the treehouse complete with all his favorite snacks and little bluebell flames in jars to keep them cozy. It was a cute setup and she was pleased, and now she just needed to wait.

...And hope the paper airplane with the note inviting him here had actually reached him.


Yes, the paper aeroplane had reached him.

It also made him trip and stumble while he rushed to the kitchens but that was beside the point.

This was a picnic, and he couldn't go to a picnic without bringing something he'd made. It was why, on this day, Sammy could be seen clutching a plate of brownies and cookies (yum!) as he climbed the stairs of the treehouse to find his sister. Better safe than sorry, right?

"Cece!"

This moment right here made the third year feel a lot younger than he actually was - and he wasn't complaining. It was a familiar sight, seeing Cece waiting for him in a treehouse with snacks. It was almost as if they were back at home, being kids, and she was about to start telling him some stories.

Approaching her, Sammy kneeled down to place the plate on the floor. "I hope you're hungry."

Approaching her, Sammy kneeled down to place the plate on the floor. "I hope you're hungry."


"Am I ever not hungry, Sam?" Cece grinned, plucking a brownie from the top of the plate and wasting no time taking a bite. He'd gotten better at this whole baking thing, if that was even possible. "You-" She managed between bites, "Are an epic baker. You should have a bakery some day. I can taste test all your creations!" Hey, yeah! Then she'd have her career sorted and he'd have his career sorted and they'd both be set. Who knew it could be that easy?

Once the brownie was finished and she was settled comfortably against the wall, a cookie in her hand just in case the urge to snack hit her again, the blonde turned her attention properly to her little brother. "So, it's been ages. Catch me up on life?" Those third years could be a crazy bunch, so she was sure he had updates to give.
