Default Owlery


At the very top of the West Tower is where all owls, whether belonging to you individually or the school, reside. As you ascend the tower and its many stairs, constant hooting can be heard and you can feel the temperature gradually dropping. Once you open the door, you can feel a draft blowing straight at you because there is no glass where the windows would be. A few owls flutter in and out of the windows as the door closes.

Stepping deeper into the owlery, hundreds of owls lining the walls in their little nooks turn their head at you. Some even swoop down from their perches to say hello in the hopes that you'll give them a few owl treats that are in a closed bag inside a drawer of an old wooden desk that was placed in the centre of the room. If you investigate the desk further, you will find spare ink, quills, and parchment should you need to write a letter on the spot if you aren't here to just check up on the owls. Pellets, old animal skeletons, belladonna berries, and owl droppings cover the floor, so watch your step.

you wanna fite? | 💚 nickleback 💚 | Uh, anyway.

She'd lived in England her whole entire life and she'd never get tired of complaining about the weather. Cloudy days full of brisk winds, chirping birds, the scent of firewood. She was bundled up in a yellow and black scarf, her freshly laundered Hogwarts cloak and some muddy trainers, the perfect attire for adventuring through the draftiest and highest parts of the castle-
but since the Ravenclaw and Gryffindor Towers were out of bounds for her-

she was fine with climbing the owlery.

Mal's knees brushed against her chest with each jump up the stairs. She was red-cheeked, panting and grinning like a mad-woman, if not for fluttering wings and ruffled feathers, her heart would be the loudest sound in the world. It was with a final solid thud that the teen girl found herself face to face with the owlery doorway, a world of brightly colored eyes, speckled floors and the unfamiliar smell of birds. "Hullo, hullo, hullo." Mal greeted, swinging 'round a lamppost, the owls looked totally uninterested. She snorted up at them.

Ash had received a package and a letter in the mail, and decided to open them up here, hopefully away from prying eyes. Inside of the package was a miniature ballista from Theodore. Ash had gone on to read the letter.

Dear Ash-


And then she was interrupted by LOUD NOISES. Ash did not like LOUD NOISES.

She almost squeaked, but then she didn't because it would look uncool. Instead she just turned around and said, "Hey! You look like you're in a good mood today. Watcha up to, and can I come?" She thought she had salvaged that situation pretty well.

Having a magizoologist slash dragonologist for a dad had its perks. Any interaction with animals especially owls was a piece of cake for Noah Mordaunt. The Hogwarts owlery was magnificent on its own, but the smaller one they had at home was better, in his own humble opinion. As he entered the tower, the Gryffindor braced for the cold air and immediately ducked out of habit. After five years in Hogwarts, he knew better to get out of the owl's flight path than to get smacked square in the face by it as it exits the owlery.

Again, by habit, he'd cleaned the floor of owl droppings and bones that littered the floor before he made himself comfortable at the desk provided for them. The other day had been really frustrating when he dealt with his annoying twin sister who refused to update their parents. Noah didn't have the heart to do the reporting thing, and salt was added to his wound when he was reminded that most people assumed he was a detached person. If he was, then what do they call Catherine? Angrily, Noah snatched a piece of parchment to tell briefly what Scarlett has done in the recent group therapy, and that Catherine refused to report to them AS PROMISED. He'd signed it with his initial and folded it in a disorderly manner that will surely annoy the heck out of his twin.

The Gryffindor sighed and looked up to see the parliament of owls looking down on him. Oh, how he wished he could just fly out of Hogwarts. Noah whistled a unique tune to summon his own Eagle owl, and was pleased to see his familiar looking healthy again. "I didn't mean for you to send so many things so early in the term," he said as he scratched the belly of the owl as it responded with a low hoot. "You have Catherine to blame, bud." Yeah, blame the exceedingly annoying twin.

Blake was looking for his owl. He hadn't seen her since the first day of the term and though he did need to send some letters, he patted his pocket to make sure they were both still there, he wanted to see her to. Usually he got at least a letter a week from his dad, but .. well maybe since he was getting older those were going to stop. Who knows? His dad was rather mysterious.

None the less, he had promised to write his mother a letter and he did .. he just hadn't sent it yet. So that was on the agenda for today. Making his way to the owlery he noticed another student already here. Hmmm.... what was that kid's name again?? They had sat by each other in muggle studies not that long ago... "Noah right?" Jeez Blake hoped he had gotten that right, how embarrassing if he hadn't ... he was usually rather good with names.

His owl stretched its wings, and made a loud hoot when another person came into the owlery. Noah turned in his seat holding up the crumpled folded parchment in his hand, and gave the older student a grin. "One of the many Noahs, I'm afraid." he said as he turned to face his owl once more to attach the parchment to its leg.

Was his owl excited, or what? "Hold still Fat Owlbus," Noah tilted his head further to see beneath all of his ow's fluff, while the creature hooted impatiently. "I know, I know. Just... give me a moment will ya?" After a final knot and a tug, Noah went back to Blake to introduce his owl. "Blake, meet Fat Owlbus Dumbledore, bud, this is Blake." he said with a proud grin as he stroked his owl's belly again. "Here to report to your folks, too?" Or was there a girlfriend or boyfriend he needed to update?

Blake smiled. "I'll be honest, you're the only Noah I know ... but then again I don't know a lot of people." Well that was true, Blake kept to himself much of his school career so far. Minus his interactions with Claudine .. and his ... well ... relationship with Bernadette, he had only had passing interaction with everyone else. No one he stayed much in touch with.

"You named your owl Fat Owlbus?" Blake asking grinning from ear to ear. He started to chuckle. That had to be the best name he had heard in a long while. He turned quick to a nip on the ear to find his very own barn owl "Jewel" make her presence known. Clearly had had ignored her for too long.

Giving her a stroke down her back and pulled out his letters. "Yup, ever since last year's .. well you know.. my folks get a little antsy if I don't write often enough." Even his mother who's muggle had heard and known all about last year. He never told her the whole story, but she knew most of it.

"Mmm. Quite frankly, I have more friends in the muggle world than here." Noah said with a shrug. Well, it really wasn't a big deal, thinking that he wasn't going to stay long in the wizarding world anyway. "Nevertheless, I am pleased to be the only Noah you know... for now." Just like Blake, he knew people in passing but not really got to know them. The only person he was close to was Cece because she's a friend since they were literally babies, and that's about it. The rest were muggle friends. "What about Claudine? You two seem to be familiar with each other?" the Gryffindor tilted his head in amusement. There must be something there.

Noah sat back, crossing his arms and grinned proudly at his owl. "His name is a great conversation starter, don't you think?" gently poking Fat Owlbus beak, he continued. "My dad thinks he's a bit on the healthy side for an owl, but I wanted this guy to be my familiar. The name just rolled out naturally." And it was great he got sorted in Gryffindor, so the name became an ode to the great former Headmaster as well.

The Gryffindor let out a long steady stream of air out of his mouth and scratched the back of his neck in agreement. "Same, mate. My parents are still on the edge about what happened. Our mum had been hovering around all of us all summer and was an angry overprotective Badger mama, and dad lost his usual chill. He was mad about the Reserve incident."

"I just don't have a lot of friends period" Okay well now Blake was making himself look like a loser ... time to turn this around, Blake was cool right?? RIGHT!!!!! And then the mention of Claudine. "Well we are in the same house." So that at least explained why they knew each other. "We've had some disastrous social interactions." There that was a polite way to say that Claudine has always been mean and rude to him, but hey ... this year maybe things would be different. "She dumbed a jar of jam on my head once" Blake laughed at the memory, that was what? 3rd year maybe?

"I love the name." He added signaling toward Fat Owlbus. Blake wished he was creative at names like that. "And this misbehaving bird is Jewel" He added indicating to his own owl who was proving to be a pain and wouldn't sit still for him to tie his letters onto. "Come on Girl, I brought you some toast." He added pulling a little snack out of his pocket to see if he could convince her.

"My mums a muggle and even she heard about all that went down. I was not dumb enough to tell her all the details though." Blake added thinking some things were better left unsaid.

Violet decided a good place to put one of her pumpkins would be the Owlery, so she had made the long climb up there with the fattest, orangest one. She also wanted to check that Mack, her magpie, wasn't hanging around up here. He was supposed to stay out in the animal sanctuary during the school year, but Mack pretty much did what he pleased most of the time, and Violet had caught him out and about more than once.

Sure enough, there he was, trying to nick some of the owl treats when the owls weren't looking. "Shoo, Mack! Go on back to the sanctuary! You know you're not supposed to be up here, you'll cost me some points if you get caught." The magpie regarded her without a trace of shame or remorse and made a faint rasping sound.

"Oh, all right," Violet relented, and pulled out the remnants of a stale bread roll she'd picked up at one of Healer Poppy's sessions and gave it to her pet, even though she knew she was just reinforcing his bad behavior. She had missed him so last year. Machiavelli gobbled up the bread, eyed the owl treats again, then eyed Violet's frowning face and thought better of it. The bird gave a final ascending cry, fluttered its wings, and sailed out of the window, hopefully back to the sanctuary where it belonged.

Violet placed her pumpkin in the space on the windowsill where Mack had taken off, tapped it once, and left it there glowing and cackling, for the entertainment of the owls.

This had to be one of Remy’s favourite places of the castle, and lucky for her, it was on the same floor as home! It was a wonder that students were even allowed in here unattended, but she really appreciated it. She peeeeked inside, elated that it was empty. Empty of human beings, that is.

Hellooow, owlies.” She greeted them quietly in hopes of not spooking them. The Gryffindor hurried inside, looking up and around at all times at each and every little baby, crunching her feet into all sorts lying on the ground. Remy was such an animal lover, but if these owls decided to swoop around her, then believe me - she’d be gone.

She headed to the quills and parchment and thought about sending the perfect letter to her sister who probably wouldn’t respond. Maybe the owls would inspire her for wise writings. Before she could even make one word, Remy was distracted and looked back up at the closest owl to her, sighing heavily.

Atlas, on the other hand, only ever came to the Owlery when there was a practical need. Which was rather limited to sending letters home, but still a need. Owls and him had a history of not exactly getting along. Think of him as that toddler who just would NOT leave the family cat's tail alone and constantly want to tug on it. He did that too, but the cats learned more quickly than any owls did, and thus young Atlas' determination to pull on tail feathers and even pull OUT feathers persisted. As was to be expected, there was an equal and opposite reaction to this disturbance...and that was that Atlas usually received a firm pecking to the top of his head or hand. He had a particular nasty scar on the side of his left hand from one owl, actually. The scar was there because he didn't want to tell mum and dad about the incident...especially seeing as mum had JUST told him to stop because the barn owl was going to bite back.

It was fine. Mostly. Mum and dad thought it was a robotics injury and Atlas simply lived out his days being moderately afraid of owls and wondering why witches and wizards had to use them of all creatures as a means of communication. He knew WHY but also..W H Y?!

A letter home to his parents and an extra one to future wife Auntie Minnie in one hand and his sheet of stamps stuck to his right cheek, the Gryffindor stepped into the Owlery and easily spotted Remy. She DID and out seeing as she was the only human in the whole place.

"Hey Remy," he greeted as he found a spot away from the owls to finish prepping his letters. Namely the stamp part...which was his least favorite part because the glue tasted terrible and was why he had also brought a little round sponge in his other pocket. "Sending letters home too?"

The daydreaming had resulting in quill tapping on her piece of parchment. She thought about what to say… how classes were going, the friends she had made… but it was probably too boring to write down, since her sister barely had time to reply, like, ever. And in that moment, Remy decided to scrap writing to her sister altogether and to her mum instead.

SPLAT.

The quill kind of exploded a little, like when you left a pen in your pocket and ended up with a leak and it all over your hands. Remy actually didn’t notice this happen so continued to stare off.

Her eyes adjusted back to reality when somebody else entered the Owlery, not only that, someone addressed her directly. UGGGGHHH, she wasn’t in the mood to socialise right now. She friend sharply, her face softening at the sight of Atlas. “Oh, yeah, to my mum…” Remy paused, glancing at the blank, ink splodged letter that she had not written yet. “Hi, by the way.” She beamed at the page of stamps stuck to his cheek.

Mostly just making friends with the owlies, they’re so cute, aren’t they?”

So, basically, they were kind of a bit of a visual mess. Her looking as though she had decided to take a dip in her inkwell and himself looking like he was attempting to ship himself via Owl Post. That was Gryffindor youths for you.

"Hey....you...uh...you got a bit of ink there..." He then pointed at her face, and her hands, and the parchment, and then wiggled his finger around her general vicinity. "Me too. Well, mum and dad and then another to my Aunt Jade and pseudo Aunt Minnie." Hence the need for more than one stamp.

His brow arched and he eyed her a bit incredulously. Making friends with owls? That was absurd. Why make friends with owls when you could with tarantulas? "I...don't really like owls," he replied warily, eyeing a particularly large looking brown spotted one just off to his left. "But if you like them and find them cute ... then that's your prerogative. I prefer different things that fly....but dragonflies would make for poor mail carriers."

Uhhh?” Remy felt her cheeks go red when her friend pointed out that she had ink on her face. She didn’t know why she was becoming such an embarrassed person lately, but her REP mattered, especially in front of certain people. She rubbed excessively where Atlas has pointed and laughed it off, taking this opportunity to take the attention off her. “We better be careful the owls don’t mistake us for a package.” She gently poked the stamps on his cheek.

Naw, he was writing to lots of people. Remy half smiled, her mind drifting off to think about her own family again, wondering if they missed her at all. “That’s nice…” She SNIFFED, and rubbed her eyes, not meaning to rub even more ink into them. NOOOOOO, she was such a mess.

The blonde mimicked his arched brow look when he said he DIDN’T like owls. She looked around at them, “Ssshhhhh… what if they hear…” Remy liked owls, but she was sure they’d attack someone if they’d cheesed them off enough. “They’re fun to talk to, although…” she lowered her voice, “… parrots seem like more fun birds.” Shame they couldn’t have parrots at Hogwarts.

Uh. He wasn't so sure that all that rubbing was actually helping things. It was kind of like when you were trying to rub in sunscreen and it just seemed to get MORE pasty white. She was kind of just looking more inky. It kind of brightened her eyes though, if one were paying attention to those things. "Uh..." he began, his mouth hanging open to maybe point out that now she also had it all over her hand and really she just needed a good Tergeo casting to siphon all that up. He could do that, actually, and would have offered if it weren't for the fact that she was poking her cheek now and drawing him out of his own staring. "Huh?" His eyes widened a bit and darted in the direction of her finger. "Oh! Yeah. Uh...it was the best way to not lose them. Or...so I thought at the time."

Blushing a bit more, he carefully peeled the strip off his cheek and held it between his fingers like a card shark would his ace in the pocket. "Wonder how many of them it would take to be able to carry one of us..." It was a question that he really did not need to know the answer to, but since she had mentioned the prospect...he couldn't help but wonder.

Oh..uh...more...ink. Even more inky. Again. A smoky eye, maybe.

"You okay?" Well, all the ink aside. That sniffle and trailing off seemed to imply the opposite.

He switched brows when she mimicked him, and then glanced over at the owls and then back to her. "They shouldn't take it personally. You can't please everyone and Strigiformophobia is a real thing." Not that he had that but he could understand why someone could. 270 degree rotation? It was creepy and not even because of magic! "So...you like birds then? Like...in general?"

The staring did not go unnoticed and made the ink rubbing process much more rushed and botchy, since it was making her feel nervous. Why wasn’t she like a normal girl who carried around one of those pocket mirrors? Truthfully, she didn’t know why she was acting so embarrassed about it, nor did she think Atlas was the type of person to care either. SIGH, this is what becoming a teenage girl was like. “Is that better?” She asked, since the ‘uh’ noise that he made was saying otherwise. She offered a toothy grin, blissfully unaware that the ink had spread even more.

Good idea,” she agreed with the sticking the stamps to the cheek. “Got any cool stamps I could borrow?” Remy pointed to her cheek ‘cause she fully intended on wasting a stamp just for appearances. Whether he gave her one of them was a true test to their friendship.

Wasn’t it the WORST when you’re trying to suppress your emotions and someone asked if you were okay? Makes the whole situation much more emotional. Remy took a moment to compose herself. “Yeah, just get a little home sick when I’m here, sometimes… my family aren’t good at writing to me.” Maybe they were super busy or maybe they needed a new owl. The family owl was getting on a bit. Thankfully, she managed to put a lid on her emotions and settled it with one final, totally attractive SNIFF.

Remy giggled a little. “You know lots of things, don’t you?” She deduced that Strigiformophobia was a fear of birds, (or just owls), from the conversation, but who knew stuff like that off the top of their head?! Anyway, it was something she admired about Atlas. Her face lit up at his next question, “I love all creatures, really. I can make…” uhh, why was she admitting to this? “… a really good owl impression, but I dunno if it would scare these guys.” She had always practised when she conversed with their family owl at home.

She could always count on him to not be all that bothered in a judgmental way for certain kinds of messy appearances (unless the occasion demanded a certain cleanliness which, well, they did not have right now considering they were in an owlery right now) and but always being curtly obvious when it came to answering questions. "Um...not really...worse, actually," he replied with some more finger wiggling in the air to indicate all around face. "But the black ink does make your smile stand out more. So, if that's what you're going for then...yes...better. But if not...I could manage a Tergeo and clean it off. I know I don't look like I know what I'm doing in lessons, but Bombarda and Cleaning Spells are two bits of magic I can actually carry my weight in."

Was why his robes always looked so pristine save for the shenanigans Aries got them tangled up in.

"Do you mean borrow or borrow without the intention of returning?" he asked as he carefully peeled the stamps off his check and did a sort of count on how many he had along with how many were required to send off all his letters. He could afford a few and, since he hadn't paid for these himself and had simply been given them by his parents for letter writing purposes. Neither of them had to know that some hadn't made the cut. "Um...do you have a favorite planet or nebula?"

He was looking at the stamps in his hand and therefore missed most of the discomfort and struggle on her face, but he was nodding nonetheless because...well...he could relate to that. "Yeah...I can understand that. All last term we couldn't communicate with our family at all. Or anyone outside of the castle...really..." That was a little heavy, Atlas. Stop. And it was also one of the first moments where he realized that there was an entire generation that just...didn't know. Of course they sort of KNEW knew about the war but...they didn't know it like second years and up did. And that was...pretty wild to think about. "I just, uh, I just mean I understand that feeling. A little. Um...empathize." He paused again and tore two stamps off the strip and held them out to her. "Uh...here...Bug Nebula. It's my favorite. Everyone says that the Eagle and Crab ones are the prettiest though." Also the Cat Eye but he wanted to use that one on one of his letters.

"I read and maintain a lot," he nodded with a small shrug. "Easily. Especially if I am reading about something I care about or am really invested in." Which would explain the previous lack of good marks in certain subjects. "I...would rather you not scare them or accidentally insult..." he nodded, glancing around nervously at the rafters and feathers. "Maybe...you can show me at dinner or something?"

Her efforts were getting her nowhere so her hands dropped to her lap and she sighed as her friend confirmed she had made the ink situation worse. Wait... what? The black ink made her smile stand out. Why would he say that?! Now she was feeling all sorts of things, all kinds of blushing, all kinds of IDEAS in her head... "Uhh... really? Thanks, I guess." Remy unknowingly closed her mouth as she smiled this time, to hide her pearly whites. Even though he was complimenting her, she felt more self conscious. Huh? "I'll take the Cleaning Spell." She wouldn't let just anyone Tergeo her face, you know. Remy grinned, "Bombarda is definitely not needed here." She wasn't sure what the outcome would be to a Bombarda to the face... possibly imminent death?

Remy wasn't sure about spells that she particularly excelled in, although it didn't seem to take her long to master ones that she practised properly. She mostly used the Summoning Charm on a day to day because it felt the most satisfying as a witch to use.

Uhh... "Weeeellll... I think they look cool as cheek decorations, so..." So SHE wanted a cheek decoration, too. "You're too much of a trendsetter, clearly." Remy giggled playfully. What she was trying to say without actually saying it was - she fully intended on keeping the stamp for herself. Knowing her she'd probably keep it forever. "Ummm... I'd have to say... Pluto." 'Cause it was a cutie. She kept quiet about talk of nebulas, because she had no idea what it was, but she didn't want Atlas to think she was stupid so she decided to just play on Pluto.

Of course, Atlas was here last year when everything happened. Remy sometimes forgot about the fact that he was in the year above her, and it just struck her that they had never talked about what happened together before. Not that she was the best person to speak to when she really didn't understand. How do you even console someone about it?! "That... must have been really hard." Not communicating with family was tough in any normal situation, let alone that. Remy's hand twitched a little, wondering if she should reach out to Atlas, hold his hand or hug him. People did that in these situations, right? Thinking against it, obviously, her hand rested again on her lap.

So THAT is what a nebula was!

Remy took the stamps and studied them with adoration. "Woaaah, that's so cool, thank you!" And just as she said she would, Remy peeled it off and stuck a stamp to her cheek, followed by a cheeky laugh.

"I like to read as well." Remy nodded. Although she didn't think she could retain half the knowledge that he could. "What's your favourite class?" Honestly, Remy couldn't even pick her favourite anymore. They were all fun in their own ways.

No, Remy, he was NOT asking you out on a date. Dinner happened every day, no biggie. "Sure." She simply replied, to play it cool...

Atlas seemed to have this natural knack of making people uncomfortable with his words and stating the first things that came to his mind. One might think that this would teach him to be more mindful...but it didn't. Instead he was sort of zoned in for a couple of lingering moments at her now closed mouth and wondering why she was trying so hard to hide her teeth now. She didn't have ink on her teeth! "Couple of cleaning charms coming up then," he chirped as he pulled his wand out and cleared his throat. No Bombardas, promise. Starting on one side of her face, he whispered a poised Tergeo and slowly began moving it in little circles.

"Kind of like temporary tattoos," smiles a little wider while moving the smell over her forehead and removing ink as he goes. "And it will stay better once all the ink is off your face." Over her forehead and back and forth and back like windshield wipers. Moving along to her other cheek, he felt a bit of heat rising in his cheeks when she called him a trendsetter. He was pretty sure that no one was following his lead anywhere, that was more Aries...and even Atlas had followed his brother's lead at Halloween. It wasn't...well...he wasn't a leader now, was he? Atlas. "Pluto?" Pauses his Tergeo-ing just around her chin or so. "That's the answer I give dad just to rile him up. It's one of the things that makes his head spin, calling Pluto a planet. So...in a way...it's my favorite 'planet' too."

Yes, there were some air quotes going on with that second planet.

And then he felt bad, turning conversation into something serious. Not just that but...she had been talking about her own things and he had turned it into something about himself. He supposed...it probably would be even more selfish if he told her that dad had been kidnapped. Not just that, but also tortured and....it was still a lot to understand and process. "Yeah...it was...sorry...I didn't mean to like...undermine your feelings or try to say that mine were worse or...whatever. I blurt things out sometimes. Was just trying to say I knew how upsetting feeling isolated and cut off could be. I hope you hear from your family soon."

At least now her face was all cleaned up. Just in time too since she was popping the stamps on to her cheek. "They look nice." Another compliment of sorts.

He had one of those memories and he leaned into it a lot. "Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, and Transfiguration," says with a smile as he lifts a finger for each subject. "I like patterns and equations."

And...was there anything more he needed to say on the dinner idea? He didn't think so...and thus he just smiled at her wide. "Cool. Looking forward to it."

It felt like there had been a small awkward silence between the two of them just then, and Remy feeling his eyes burning into her, even when she was looking elsewhere. Anywho - the first year gulped as Atlas took out his wand and cleared his throat. Honestly, she didn’t think she’d let anyone else do this to her pretty face. She closed her eyes as he started, and… it all seemed to be working. Remy grinned and giggled as she felt the magic doing its thing.

Oh noooo… what was with the air quotes? Was Pluto not a planet?

Hah… yeah… I was just joking as well.” Although it was a comfort that he said Pluto was also his favourite, despite her not actually believing that for a second. She made a mental note to check some space themed books out from the library, mostly to look up Bug Nebula.

No, not at all!” Her hand twitched again and she moved it closer to his, but not touching his. Knee jerk reaction. She hadn't felt he had turned the conversation on himself at all. “You can talk about it if you want, with me. I just… I can’t imagine what you must have gone through.” She recalled her conversation with Ash and the horrors she went through, it had suddenly dawned on her that Atlas probably received something similar and THAT was upsetting. She felt strong enough not to show it this time.

All done! “Thank you.” For working his magic. Remy did a little pose to show off her stamped cheek. “Which one will you wear?” Because they had to do this trend together.

Of course, Atlas liked the most difficult classes best, this came as no surprise at all. “I kinda struggle with Arithmancy.” Remy admitted. Also Ancient Runes but let’s go with one failure at a time. “Maybe you could tutor me sometime.” She giggled a little, only joking just a little.

Cool, looking forward to it. OHMYMERLIN, they were going on a date!!!! Ahem. “Cool.”

He was holding his breath a bit while performing the cleaning charms. Faces were, after all, much different from cotton and wool...which was usually what he was performing the spell on. Inanimate too. There were a lot of factors that could have messed him up if he lost focus. Thankfully...none of the plethora of possible fiascos came to pass and she was now ink free.

"You mean Pluto isn't your favorite?" Or what was it she was saying she was only joking about? He had been a bit focused on the cleaning and now slipping his wand back into its holster and returning it to his pocket. "Or you think Pluto should be a planet again and pulling astronomy's leg along with me kind of joking?"

He smiled a little, but his shoulders also hunched a bit. He didn't feel safe talking about things with just anyone. In fact, a couple people he had been rather upfront about the details had been rather dismissive if not downright belittle about things they did not fully grasps or were just too stubborn and blind to see past the end of their own noses. But, with Remy, he almost believed that he could. He really only talked with his brother and sister about things...and a little with Quinn and Phoebe. Auntie Minnie got a good dishing of truth every now and then as well, but he had felt like in the post war era that he needed to play the more stable role and so...he had sort of tried to put a lot of it aside. Tuck it away and write it off as Future Atlas' problems. "Thanks, Remy," he smiled and sucked in a relaxing breath through his nose. "I'll keep that in mind...and maybe another time." The owls were listening.

He really hoped she wasn't about to pretend to walk the runway here in the Owlery, though he did chuckle a bit at her playful posing. "What? Oh...uh... I dunno. I'll see what is left over once I get all these letters stamped." Which was what he was going to do right now. Tear, lick, stick. Tear lick stick. Rinse and repeat until all the letters were accounted for. And then came the most daunting part of all this, the part he usually had Aries do for him: attaching the letters to the legs of the owls.

"Me? Yeah. Sure!" Another smile for Remy and a bit of his chest puffing out at her acknowledging his brilliance. "That could be a lot of fun. Especially if you like puzzles too. Couple of times a week. Nothing solidifies just once a week."

As for dinner...he really hoped there was rice pudding.

She was being really careful not to say stuff that would make her seem stupid, but Atlas was making it difficult for her. “Uhh…” she accidentally let out before smiling confidently. “… I was just joking about Pluto being a planet, of course.” He had confirmed that was not the case just now so she felt confident with her answer. “But yeah, it is still my favourite.” She dramatically winked.

See, she was an actress.

Sheeeh, this was a rollercoaster of a conversation. He had brought the subject up but she guessed she wasn’t someone who he could confide in. Which was… totally fine, the more she thought about it. Remy nodded, “Sure thing.” This conversation felt too adulty anyway. Plus she had started crying when Ash told her all about last year, which would not be a good look after already being an inked mess in front of Atlas.

Whaaaat?? He wasn’t gonna wear one as well? Aw, it would have been a photo opportunity… if she had a phone. As he was stamping his letters, Remy turned her attention back to her own letter that she was covered in ink so she screwed it up and for out another piece of parchment. She started with a short sentence about her last week at Hogwarts, then started to doodle mindlessly in the corner. “Sooooo… do you have any left?” Remy was hopeful. She pushed the stamp on her cheek to keep its stickiness.

Quietly admiring his adorable chest puff, Remy beamed at his enthusiasm. “I like puzzles, pretty good at them.” Modest shrug. She was an average standard but liked to boast. He was being very helpful today. Remy wondered about what she could do for him in return.
