Default Atticus' Attic Music Shop


Upon opening the door to Atticus' Attic, you will be met with the sound of Wizarding bands both new and old being piped through the whole store. Step inside and you'll find yourself among a sea of Music Tables boasting thousands of albums from artists both Magic and Muggle on any medium you aspire to find. Vinyl records, cassette tapes, compact discs, and 8-track tapes, along with the appropriate devices to play all of these things, paired with large over-ear headphones, can be found at each table. And though many of the tables are dedicated to well-known Muggle recording formats, a fair amount of them are also dedicated to "item albums" as well. Small boxes bearing a band and album name litter these tables, and inside are items the size of a knut, varying in colour and shape dependent on the box's label. A single tap with a wand will cause the album to begin to play aloud or the album can also be stuck behind the ear to be played privately, so as to not disturb others.

At the back of the shop, you might notice the door tucked off to the right side with a shiny plaque marking the room beyond as "The Recording Booth". Inside you'll find a very large, enchanted soundboard and a plethora of various sound equipment. A sign on the wall asks that you please not touch the soundboard, as it is a very delicate piece of technology. The wide room is complete with several microphone stands scattered throughout and many enchanted instruments, waiting to be played by hand or charmed to life. You'll find that any artist entering the room will have their music or vocals magically isolated by careful charms laid out by the shopkeeper. Time in this booth can be booked in advance and walk-ins are also accepted on basis of availability.

Set along the back wall of the shop is an area devoted specifically to displaying the various band merchandise offered up for sale. The wall is lined completely with T-shirts, stacks of which can be found in cube shelving beneath, along with an assortment of band-related hoodies. A few tables bear a hodge-podge of items to be browsed: band logo jewelry, keychains, posters, and sturdy white cardboard boxes filled with music-related magazines, each labeled on the front with the magazine's name, are just a few of the treasures you’ll find here. Whatever your musical needs, Atticus's Attic is sure have what you're searching for.

Another weekend. Another trip to Diagon Alley.

Dahlia didn't mind it though. Some might think that she would grow tired of constantly coming home but that wasn't the case. Truthfully in was helping her more than even she realized. Being around all the different people, all the scents and sounds. The first few times she had returned here at the start of the summer, it was had been extremely overwhelming but now, she was able to wander around like she used to. Almost. Sort of.

Somehow she had ended up at Atticus' Attic. It was a shop she didn't frequent all to often but one she was familiar with. Music had become a good friend of hers this summer while she had found herself mostly hidden away in her room. It couldn't hurt to look around while she was, perhaps find something new to listen to. Or maybe she would even find something or Hady's old band in here or Koen's band!

Right away blue eyes started to scan over the names of CDs that were stacked across a tabletop nearest her. This might take awhile.

Okay, so she had most of her shopping list by this point in time. And the last time she was here, Maya and her had run from their two older brothers and played an active game of tag around the Alley. The music shop had been one of the back up hiding places if Evan had found them in F&B so next time she visited the Alley - she just had to go here and see it.

Walking in to the shop, she paused, taking in all of its wonders and immediately liking the mood in here. They had vinyl records of bands she had never heard of and more. Wow! She ought to bring her Appa with her here next time. He loved vinyl records. Maybe she ought to buy a gift for Appa and Eomma here.

Lisa looked further along the shop and saw a girl (who seemed around her age) over near a tabletop with a stack of CDs. She looked like she was on a mission and Lisa just HAD to know. “What are you looking for?

This was a indeed a mission.

A mission of the very best kind. One that you didn't even know you were on until someone else brought it to your attention. Like right now.

Dahlia had quickly lost herself in looking through the CDs, her finger lightly skimming over each one as she read the bands name before moving onto the next one. The song playing overhead through the sound system was unknown to her but she found herself swaying from side-to-side anyhow. Music did that to her. It soothed her soul. Calmed her fears. Cleared her head.

A voice quickly pulled her from her own thoughts and she found herself looking at a girl smaller than herself but maybe about her age? "A couple of bands that I know of. I'm not sure if they would have them here though. They might though... there's basically everything else I've never ever heard of." Which meant there was hope in finding what she wanted to find.

"Are you in here to find your favorite band things too?" Lia asked curiously, offering the girl a soft smile.

Lisa looked to the older girl and tilted her head subconsciously as she listened to Dahlia speak about her own mission she was on. “What bands do you like?” asked she with eyes wide as tea cup saucers. She was very interested to know. She liked music. It was fun to listen and learn about different bands through others.

She blinked twice, not expecting to be asked a question just yet. Err... And what was she doing in here? Lisa hadn’t wanted to come out straight away with the truth because she didn’t want Dahlia to think poorly of her or strangely of her. “I’m here to look for my cousin’s album. He’s a singer songwriter!” she beamed, puffing her chest out a little. Heh. She was very proud of Chang-Woo and she got the albums first. Eying their surroundings, she leaned towards Dahlia with a secretive smile. “I’m also here to see if this place had a good hiding spot. I play hide and seek with my siblings and I wanted to come check this place out too..

Scope out the lay of the land. See if she could hide.

Lia paused her search for a moment, her finger still lightly resting on one of the CD cases as she turned her blue eyes towards Lisa. She knew this question was going to asked. It ALWAYS was. There was noway a conversation about music could be had without asking about about which bands were liked. Normally she would reply with something simple such as 'I like all sorts of music' but today she decide to give an actual answer. "Well I like TDK, The Sirens, The Kings & Serpents, Guns N' Roses, Pat Benatar and Patty Smyth to name a few." Or more than a few but the girl had asked.

Huh? Now it was Lia's turn to be surprised. Had the girl just said she was here looking for her cousin's album? But that's kinda what she, herself was doing right now. A small smile tugged at her lips. "My cousin is in a band, I'm not sure if his bands album would be in this shop either but it be... my big sister used to be in a band when she was young. I know they had recorded a few songs here in the back at one time." That was waaaaaaay before she had even been born though! Or had she been a little baby? Either way it was a long long time ago.

Lia had the urge to lean away when the girl lean closer but she didn't. And she couldn't help but grin a little and glance around the shop herself. "A hiding spot.. well.. there's probably a lot around here if you're careful not to knock anything over." Since the girl was small like herself she was sure to fit into a whole lot more places. "I could help you find a few, if you want?" With four siblings of her own at home, hid and seek was a game they played often too.

If she could fit into a hiding spot then the other girl would have no trouble fitting into the same spot. It would work out perfectly if they stuck together in helping one another hide.

Lisa didn't know many of the bands except Pat Benatar and Guns N'Roses rang a bell. She had heard those before for sure. She nodded her little head. "I know a FEW of those names!!" And TDK sounded oddly familiar. She swore that she saw an album of theirs in the her eldest brother's room. She took it that he was a big fan.

Her eyebrows raised when Lia mentioned that her cousin was in a band too. OH WOW! How cool. What a weird but incredibly cool coincidence. The whole thing made her smile grow bigger. "Neato! What's the name of the band that he's in?" she asked before her eyes widened that her sister was in a band. Wow. So this girl's family was insanely talented. "Are you in a band too?"

She nodded, listening to the older girl's advice about this location having several hiding places. Good. Good. This was all good information to hear and learn. She nodded again for good measure to show that she was listening as her eyes scanned the scene. Lisa turned back to the older grin and BEAMED even more when she mentioned that she could help her hide. "Thanks! That'd be great. I'm Lisa Nam by the way."

The fact that the girl knew a few was good enough for her! "That's a start." Dahlia nodded her head. "What bands do you like?" Maybe they could recommend some new bands to each other! Now that could be fun.

"Koen's the drummer for The Kings & Serpents. They've been a band for awhile now." A really good one too if she did say so herself. Maybe she was just being biased but it was HER cousin they were talking about. The look on the girls face almost made her giggle but she was able to control it. "Nah-uh." She shook her head. Maybe someday but not right now. "Do you play any instruments or anything?" Was SHE in a band?!

Oooh, Lia was liking her already. Her attentiveness was very nice. That way she looked around but it was clear that all the information Lia had been telling her was being absorbed. This made her happy. "It's nice to meet you Lisa, I'm Dahlia Donovan."

Introductions aside, the small Ravenclaw glanced around the shop. Hiding place, hmmm...

"Well the best thing to remember is when your small if you can fit somewhere that's lower to the ground the person looking for you usually doesn't want to bend down and search for you. Especially if you can wiggle yourself behind things." Like in closets or cabinets. Under things sometimes worked too or up high on selves if it could hold the weight.

A Poop * k8 *

For reasons Aboli knew but couldn't quite figure out, she felt nervous about meeting up with Josh today. Was it because they hadn't spoken for a year? That she had changed in such a short time? That she felt.......so little these days? Nervousness was actually somewhat exciting because it was something. Her emotions were slowly coming in from the dam, but she really needed the wall holding everything back to implode already. The spurts of emotions here and there were getting old, and she just wanted everything to feel normal again.

What even was normal?

She had taken to not wearing her gloves just to feel things. It was nice, being able to duck into someone else's heart when her own felt so numb. Her therapist AND mentor both said this was not the best idea, so Aboli tried to minimize it. She was wearing her gloves today, too, but she would take them off at some point to show Josh the tattoo.

That had been a nice feeling as well. She could see how people got more than one, and she was already planning the next. Maybe as she, Minjae, and Noah traveled, she'd get a different one in every place they visited. Was that obscene? Maybe.

Her stomach bubbled with anxiety as she stepped into the music shop, unsure of where to head to first since a quick scan of the store revealed Josh wasn't there yet. Her shoulders slumped slightly, and she tucked her back-to-brown hair behind her ears.

Especially if you can wiggle yourself behind things." Like in closets or cabinets. Under things sometimes worked too or up high on selves if it could hold the weight.
Lisa paused at Lia's question. What bands did she like!? Well..... Her cousin's for sure.... but what other bands? "[b]Well my cousin's band of course....And Melanie Sung....[b]" she began before her eyes quickly darted behind the girl to look at a few bands and then she looked back to the girl. "I recognise no other bands here. The rest of the ones I know and like are muggle ones... mostly pop...Bubblepop." She was a big fan of Katy Perry, Doja Cat, and ITZY.......

Oh her cousin was a drummer? And he was a drummer for a band called The Kings and Serpents... Why did that name sound familiar. "I think I've heard of that band before.... I think my cousin who's a singer is kinda seeing someone who's in that bad... or is a singer.... Is there a girl in the band?" she asked, trying to remember the photo that she had seen at Chase's house. Blonde hair and glasses was stuck in her head. Anyway, it was cool that her cousin was a drummer in a band. "That's awesome. That he's a drummer. I could never imagine doing that." She had never considered becoming a musician or a dancer... That was more of Chase and Noah's thing. Not hers. She liked books and blackholes much better. Waaaay less pressure involved with either of those.

Aww she wasn't in a band? Lisa frowned a little. "Oh well!" There goes her chances of meeting someone famous but then again maybe she could meet said famous person if she became friends with Lia? That'd be pretty cool! Mhmm... Totally cool. And then Lia asked her if SHE played an instrument and she shook her head. "Nah.... I just imagine that I could play them... or be a rockstar... in front of the mirror....." Her cheeks were slightly red with that erhm... embarrassing confession but she had a feeling that Lia would be totally cool with that. She had a big imagination after all. "I'd love to learn how to play the violin. That'd be cool."

She offered Dahlia a big grin as the other girl introduced herself. "Nice to meet you too, Dahlia! Do you go by Dahlia or do you go by something else?"

Lisa nodded, taking mental notes of everything that this girl was saying. She was TINY! so she would use the spaces closer to the ground to her advantage for sure. She eyed their surroundings and noticed a little space behind a stack of boxes. "So like behind there or would that be too obvious?"

She offered Dahlia a big grin as the other girl introduced herself. "Nice to meet you too, Dahlia! Do you go by Dahlia or do you go by something else?"

Lisa nodded, taking mental notes of everything that this girl was saying. She was TINY! so she would use the spaces closer to the ground to her advantage for sure. She eyed their surroundings and noticed a little space behind a stack of boxes. "So like behind there or would that be too obvious?"
Lia nodded. "Of course!" That answer had been expected. With how excited Lisa had been when she mentioned her cousin being in a band, Lia would've been very confused to hear her said she didn't like the band, unless the music wasn't her style. "That's okay, I like lots of muggle bands too." If it had a good beat then chances were she was going to like it.

Lisa knew Koen's band! That was so awesome! She couldn't to get home and give her cousin a call so she could tell him that she meet a girl today that knew of his band! Dahlia bounced on her toes as she listened. Her cousin was seeing someone in Koen's band? Cool! "Uh-huh. There's two actually. One joined a few months or so ago I think?" Which was much more recently than the rest of the band. "Playing the drums is a lot of fun." Noisy but fun. Which is probably why she enjoyed it so much.

She shrugged a shoulder. "Maybe one day. If I find enough people for a band and we all play well together." Like her siblings. Now that would be a lot of fun. Dahlia giggled softly at Lisa's confession but not because she thought it was silly or anything like that. "That sounds like fun. Do you dress up too?" To give herself the full effort and everything! "I like how the violin sounds but I don't know if I'd be able to play one."

All smiles now. "Sometimes! Mostly I get called Lia since it's shorter."

"You can give that a try but that might be a bit obvious because boxes are something people usually want to look inside of?"

That she felt.......so little these days? Nervousness was actually somewhat exciting because it was something. Her emotions were slowly coming in from the dam, but she really needed the wall holding everything back to implode already. The spurts of emotions here and there were getting old, and she just wanted everything to feel normal again.

What even was normal?

She had taken to not wearing her gloves just to feel things. It was nice, being able to duck into someone else's heart when her own felt so numb. Her therapist AND mentor both said this was not the best idea, so Aboli tried to minimize it. She was wearing her gloves today, too, but she would take them off at some point to show Josh the tattoo.

That had been a nice feeling as well. She could see how people got more than one, and she was already planning the next. Maybe as she, Minjae, and Noah traveled, she'd get a different one in every place they visited. Was that obscene? Maybe.

Her stomach bubbled with anxiety as she stepped into the music shop, unsure of where to head to first since a quick scan of the store revealed Josh wasn't there yet. Her shoulders slumped slightly, and she tucked her back-to-brown hair behind her ears.
Josh was not superstitious, but something he couldn't help but feel like he was jinxing himself. Like right now as he stepped into the shop to meet up with Aboli. Sure, it was not uncommon for Josh to find himself here and it was one of his favorite shops in all of the Alley, but it carried a difference weight now. Someday, maybe even someday SOON, his own merch might be here in this shop...and just thinking that made him feel like it was never going to happen. It had only taken him half a year to get used to recording in a studio setting, not that he had been an absolute disaster the whole time or else the label would have dropped him like a hot potato, and it was in learning the mechanics behind everything that the former Gryffindor discovered just how much of a perfectionist he was.

Maybe that wasn't surprising to others since he did have high standards for himself and could come down pretty relentlessly on himself...but it was more than just those standards. He wanted his hands on literally every part of the process. Thankfully it was an acoustic album in the works, something that was apparently "risky" and not advised, but that was his sound. If he crashed and burned at least he would do it being himself. A year out and he was still riding that high.

...uh...aNyWaY...

Spotting Aboli, Josh quickly made his way over to her and would have thrown his arms around her in a hug ... if it hadn't been for her letter. He was not sure if such gestures would be considered uncomfortable and unwanted given what all she had just been through. Trauma manifested itself differently in everyone and while he did not want to treat her like she was a piece of glass, he certainly didn't want to push boundaries she may not even be fully aware she had constructed. Best to just take his cues from her.

"Well...what are the odds. The one and only Aboli Song. Fancy meeting you here," he greeted as he came up to her side, super casual and his untamed curls bouncing freely with his stride.

Aboli couldn't even remember the contents of her letter to Josh, now. Trauma did that, y'know. Made you forget things quickly. It was happening a lot to her recently, so much so that she was reminded of her fifth year when they had all almost disappeared and forgot everything like five minutes after they happened. But at least she knew the general gist of her letter?

She felt her mouth form a grin as she heard his voice. Her eyes lit up, her cheeks turned pink, and she immediately touched his cheek with her gloved hand before pulling it back awkwardly. A hug would be nice.

Er-

Hugs.

Aboli awwwwwwkwardly changed her mind mid-hug, but had already COMMITTED to the hug, and so she just...hugged him, pressing herself against his safety and warmth and enjoying seeing his smile again. "Joshwa." She chuckled ever-so-slightly as she pulled away and placed her hands on each of his shoulders. "I...I'm afraid I'm being so awkward because I've missed you and don't know what to say or do first. I'm sorry if I've made you internally cringe," she smirked as she laid it all on line, there. "You look well." And not like he had lost weight...like she had. Being locked in that room for a bit, there.

Her appetite still wasn't normal.

Neither were the bags under her eyes. They were ever present lately. Dreams came in THOUSANDS per week, and she blamed her mother's presence so near hers. And the dreams weren't all bad, but they were just so damn vivid.

Default ...I just drew a blank...Josh knows about Aboli's ~thing~ right? o.o
astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf

Oh. Well. Josh supposed that this was not all that unsurprising. It had been a whole year and a lot had happened in a year. Like...the Josh she knew last summer was different from the Josh that was here in her limp noodle arms right now. A happier Josh. A more independent Josh. A Josh that felt guilty for being all these things because, if he hadn't gone against the man, he should have been right there along with her and the others. He should have been at Hogwarts too. But he hadn't been. In fact, he hadn't even been on the battle front despite wanting to thanks to his girlfriend and her brother ensuring that he was LiTeRaLLy tied to a chair until the announcement that the war was over.

Basically...Josh had done nothing for his friends. Save for stay alive which...he supposed that was a good thing but if felt like very little considering he had the easy route of doing that. Minus that fight where he had earned a black eye and broken nose...but that was for neither here not there.

He was currently hugging Aboli and THAT was what mattered.

"I...wasn't feeling weird until you pointed out that maybe I should be feeling weird..." he chuckled again as his arms loosened from around her. "I...figured something like this could happen. It's all good, Aboli. No judgement or nothing."

And no, actually, Josh was finally putting ON weight now. Leaving that tyrannical household was doing wonders...though he really should go visit soon considering there had just been a WAR and all that. Family was still...sort of family. A thought for tomorrow's Josh.

"And I mean...you know I'm always putting my foot in my mouth because of something I've said. Running my mouth hasn't changed, if that is of any sort of comfort." Probably not. "I've missed you too. Thought about you an absolutely obscene amount. I...uh...I wrote too. Couldn't send anything so I just kept them all. Meant to give these to you when the Hogwarts Express pulled in to King's Cross but...that day turned out to be a bit chaotic...so I brought them all with me. Tied up neatly in my bag with a bow...so you know that means I didn't do the tying but the thought was there." His bows had turned out to be knots, which amused Eliza to no end. "Mostly updates...like I would have been sending if...well...you know...things hadn't been what they were..." Glances at the display in front of them, all the faces on the labels and all the titles too. "....I can't...even really imagine..."

Default yesss! She told him in their...sixth year, I think, yes!
A Poop * k8 *

GaaAAhhhh. She knew she'd make it weird. So she tried to un-weird it up, but maybe if she just acted chill it would un-weird itself out. So she just stepped back and looked into his eyes, her own so distant sometimes. But not right now. Not right here, with Josh. "You...never judge. I'm not worried," she smiled gently and tucked some of her loose hairs behind her ear.

But oooooh, Josh.

As soon as he started on the tangent about thinking of her, sending her letters, she felt her eyes well. Her fits tightened, and Aboli was suddenly blinking a whole lot to keep from absolutely wibbling in front of him. She didn't WANT to cry. She wanted to laugh and catch up and just..be light. Airy. Playful.

None of those things were happening.

And it wasn't because of his presence. "Yeah, so...I'll take them if you want. I'll send mine along shortly. They get......less and less frequent. Especially since at the end, I did a stint in the...have you heard of it?" She lowered her voice and looked at the ground. "The...the room."

Josh couldn't really begin to understand what all she was going through, but he did know a little something about trying to deny certain feelings within yourself and just...suppress them. Suppress because you just did not want to deal with it but in avoidance...it all just intensified. Until you snapped. His snapping point had been the summer leading into his seventh year. Aboli, well, maybe hers was less of a snap and more of a wither...like a small hole poked into a balloon and the air slowing pfft-ing out of it. Maybe...she felt like she could do that with him, even if there location was not as private as he would like to provide for her for such a moment.

Not that she didn't have other people she didn't feel safe with...just maybe him NOT being there and not enduring it all provided some sort of additional cushioning to it. No way to subconsciously feel like her suffering was being compared to someone else's.

Anyway, he was no psychologist and THAT much was obvious based on how helpful-not-helpful he was whenever he and Spencer talked the deep talks.

"Sure," he smiled while pulling on the strap of his bag to bring it around front so he could pull the letters out. The bow was green, for the record, and sort of had this sleek reptilian texture to it without being overly scale-like. He thought it suited her. "A little," he nodded as he offered the stack to her. "I was filled in a little bit by the people I met at King's Cross..." Sighs a bit and takes one of her hands in his, squeezing it gently. "I wish you hadn't gone through any of that, Aboli. Whatever happened...whatever you did...you were just trying to survive. You shut down...and it's going to take some time allowing yourself to open the door again and let the light in. Like...rEaLLy let it in...because the defense is...to not...because it will be all overwhelming. Bet it still IS overwhelming..." Pauses, wetting his lips and looks at the stack of letters. "So...you know...take your time reading those."

The atmosphere of the music shop was weird, wasn't it? Aboli could feel the walls closing in on her as she barely heard Josh's reply. His voice was echo-y, and her vision was un-focusing.

Momentarily.

Then she was back, snapped back into place as she tried to stay present. Nodding a lot. Yes. She was listening, Josh, she was. "I...just want to feel something. Soon. So I'll probably read these tonight," she admitted in a small voice. "And if I cry, I take that as a sign that I'm healing. Luckily my mum's a therapist - " she smiled, trying to make light of something so dark. "So I know I'll be okay. And I've got like, three people I'm seeing right now for different things. One being the - " she wiggled her gloved fingers. "Who I couldn't see all last term, so now I'm really far behind in that department. SPEAKING of my hands, though..."

She bit the glove pointer finger's tip and pulled it off with her mouth of her right hand. "I got a tattoo. Dad's been saying once I turn of age...then he changed his mind and said once I graduate...well, after this year, I don't think he had an issue." She showed him the snake on her skin. "I will probably get another soon. I want them everywhere." Even though it reminded her of her bio dad, and even though she wanted nothing to do with him, she still couldn't help the desire. To be covered in art...to be a living embodiment of all of her memories and whatnot. There was a magical idea she'd had in mind, too, for one of them. But she'd need time to figure it out, and a talented magical tattoo artist, too.

He always felt selfish for the feelings that came up whenever he talked to a friend who had been at Hogwarts during...all this. It really had nothing to do with him and logically he understood that he didn't have any power over anything that happened. And yet...the survivor's guilt was real and making a home in his chest that had only just recently had the previous weight of pops lifted from it. But with each person, each experience he heard, the weight became more and more heavy.

He somehow kept his external features in check, however, and draped an arm over her shoulders again while she took the letters. "Take your time...and if you need to or want to talk after...I'm just a call away," says with a smile while his thumb drummed on her shoulder a bit. "Yeah...talking to a professional...kind of wild how that actually works, isn't it?" That was the only glimpse into his own progress he would give for now, unless she asked. Though the majority of all that was all there in his letters.

Leaning back a bit [s]and subconsciously acknowledging that that was a very attractive move she always did with the removal of her gloves, his eyes moved to the tattoo. "Oh wow! You finally did it!" Not thinking, something he did quite often and was very good at, he reached to take her hand so he could get a better look at it. "I've been thinking about it too but...not sure what to do. I'm not even sure I know where to begin." Which was a bit of a lie, he wanted to tattoo music on him but...it was picking the piece and specific notes that was just impossible to narrow down. He hadn't found that ONE thing that really stuck out to him. "What are you going to get next, do you think?"

She would probably take Josh up on his offer to hang out more. To be...in depth with someone who wasn't her boyfriend. Not that having Noah was a bad thing - quite the contrary - but it was different with someone she wasn't in a relationship with. Aboli needed other humans as much as she liked to pretend, sometimes, that she didn't. It had been an innate craving in her since she was little, and maybe it stemmed from her beginnings. From the abandonment, from the desire to undo her existence from the beginning that carried on into her younger school years when her gift was rearing its ugly head. Not ugly, you. Just different, she found her brain butting in.

Weird, though.

She had never not had a negative thought attached to her gift. Perhaps her various therapies WERE doing their job.

"You'll have to fill me in later, then, about your own therapy adventures," she smiled gently before he was touching her hand. It was a jolt, for sure, since she hadn't been expecting it. A year ago she might have yelped. Jumped back. Even winced harder than she had just now. But for now, all she did was smile as she clenched her teeth, the unpleasant transfer of whatever he was feeling seeping into her. She had never practiced occlumency, but from what she had read about it, it seemed similar. She had to focus on his words, on the conversation, on keeping her tattoo in her line of vision rather than the sensation, than what he was feeling. Focus was the key for the beginnings of this, she knew. And she'd probably never admit it aloud to anyone besides her mentor, but the room had sharpened her focus immensely.

"Um. Probably a plant. I think. On either my either wrist or my collar bone. Haven't decided. It hardly hurt...I kinda liked it," she smirked as she kept her hand in his, unwilling to pull away due to discomfort. How long could she go without it totally draining or overwhelming her? Part of her was curious. It would also depend on the depth of timing of his emotions.

Well...DUH! She should. Especially now that they were both graduated and with that came more freedoms and all. Also more obligations. Being an adult, or at least pretending to wear the shoes of one, was exhausting and way harder than being in school. Well...sort of. There were exceptions. But honestly...took the house elves for granted because learning how to do his own laundry had been a disaster. At least before she went off to go her globetrotting gig.

"Yeah, for sure," nods lightly and with a boyish kind of smile. Nothing but good vibes over here, as far as his touch was concerned. Anxiety over his upcoming release was buried in there somewhere, but for the most part Joshua Miller was peak golden retriever. "Generally though...I'm doing really good. Like... really good. It was...surprisingly easier to turn things around than I thought it would be, once I got out of there." Save for the feelings of guilt that occasionally dragged him down but...it was nothing that was crippling like things had been while living under pops' roof. "And Eliza has almost taught me how to make a cup of tea properly...so I'm practically house trained now."

It was a true accomplishment, though sometimes he still did things backwards just to get a rise out of her.

Lets go of her hand, still not piecing together that what he had done was...well...kind of invasive and A LOT. "Lots of options with plants too." He didn't know how to narrow that down at all. But a creeping vine of some sort felt kind of Aboli-esque to him. "You gonna get Noah's name tattooed on you somewhere?"

Hey hey heeeeeeeeeeeey. Wink wink nudge nudge.

Aboli could have guessed that Joshua was doing extremely well even had he not said it or if she hadn't been able to literally feel it. Did he know he was glowing? It made the smile on her face widen just a bit as he spoke. "I can tell. Multiple ways," she said as she lifted her hand that he had just let go of. "But your face...and eyes....twinkling, practically. And oh, Joshy. It makes me so happy for you. Overflowing with happiness, really." She wanted to hug him, and so she caved into those ooey-gooey feelings and did so.

Life was too short to not be corny when you felt like it. She had learned that this past year.

"So if I stop by for tea, you'll be ready? I'll provide the cakes," she chuckled into her hand as she slipped her gloves back on. "You know...I...I don't know Eliza all that well. Maybe I SHOULD come over and have you make some tea while I get to know her." The girl had been a year above them at school, and Aboli hadn't really payed attention to the older people until after Eliza had gone...which had also been when Joshua left, too.

HA!

Aboli choked at his suggestion, rolllllling her deep blue eyes at him. "Uh, no. Please. I'd get my own name over any partner of mine. No. What if something happened to him or us? It'd be a permanent reminder........I'd get a symbol that REMINDS ME of him, maybe," she shrugged, her cheeks VERY pink. "If that was your way of asking if we're good, we're good. He's healing, too. But he's better at healing than I am."

It was Noah. He was.....just positive and happy and stuff.
