Default Lachlan the Lanky

As you crest the staircase coming up from the sixth floor, you'll notice a statue to your right. Lachlan the Lanky is a great landmark for a meeting place because he has just enough space behind him for a firstie to squeeze in and hide.

Never underestimate the element of surprise when greeting your friends, and even more so when sneaking up on your enemies.

"Tell him?" Her voice was all muffled from the inside of her sweater. "On the list of terrible ideas, that tops them all. On the one hand, he likes someone else. On the other, he'll stop being my friend, and I couldn't stand that. On the other other hand... I don't think he even sees me. At all. On the other other other... I have four hands. How did I get four hands?"

Her eyes peeked from the collar of her sweater, all welling with tears. "I'm a coward."
Yay! Hat party! Another hat had just arrived, so maybe Selina had gotten the memo right and Vivi was just late on the uptake. Then again, maybe not because Vivi was cheating on her hat with her sweater, which was NOT cool. Like at all.

But what she said next literally knocked the five year old out of the redhead. It actually sort of upset her.

"You, Viv, are NOT a coward. You're afraid. There's a difference. Don't ever mistake cowardess with fear." This was Vivi they were talking about and she did not do coward. That was a Puffer's game, not Vivi's. She was not a coward, she was just afraid and that was okay. Telling someone that they liked them was really hard and scary. But Vivi was smart, hence the Ravenclaw thing, she was really pretty, Selina was friend's with pretty people THAT was a fact, and Vivi was really awesome, Selina ALSO only hung out with awesome people.

She moved a little in their awkward space behind the statue to give Vivi a one-armed hug. It was too much effort to give her a full one and there was just not enough space. But she did feel bad that Vivi was teary. This was so not the girl she knew. Vivi was stronger then this... then again men did HORRIBLE things to women. They reduced them to tears and made them feel all kind of weird emotions. Silly men and their silly prettiness and charm!

"By the way," Selina said with a smile nudging her friend, "I'd pick you over ANYONE any day... unless the other girl in question was Kurumi.. then you'd have some competition." Because Kurumi could cook. THAT was a serious point in her direction.

Oh, hugging. Vivi emerged from her sweater and flopped her deerstalker awkwardly onto her own head before letting herself be pulled into the awkward side-hug. It was sort of... nice to have this voice of reason and positivity telling her that she wasn't a terrible, awful person, that she deserved good things... so much better than the self-flagellation she did on a daily basis.

She dashed the tears from her eyes before they could fall. "I hate feeling like this. I don't even feel like me anymore." She was a stranger to herself in the way she reacted and felt. "I'd choose Kurumi too, if I was you. No offense taken."

The hug was over now, right? It had been nice, but they weren't really in a big enough space for lingering hugs. "Anymore follow-ups now that you know my deep dark secrets? I'll tell you all the stupid, creeptastic things I've done all term, maybe? Or the things I've said that I'd like to take back? Or maybe we can just make me stop talking? Muzzling charm?"

Well, so much for Selina trying to be nice. Vivi had to go on and say that she would automatically choose Kurumi. "I was just trying to say that she would be the ONLY person who you'd have competition with." Because Kurumi was awesome. EVERYONE KNEW THAT, but it was nice to try and give people some credit, merlin. Only idiots didn't pick Kurumi and Selina was still pretty bitter about the one thing Kurumi did not get picked for. But she digressed, it was just her stupid Gryffindor pride.

In all honesty, this hug was starting to feel awful stale. It was not that Selina was not an affectionate person, from time to time people called Selina a golden lab because she was so bloody likable RIGHT?!, but there was just no space to be a golden lab today. They were cramped in a small space and affection was not a friend to small spaces, so as Vivi talked Selina untangled herself from the web of the one handed hug to listen.

Oh so, they were done with the feelings then? Ummm okay then. Selina had a ton of really awesome tidbits of advice that she could share. But if Vivi did not want to hear them she would refrain from sharing. She was not offended she was totally offended.

But now it was her turn and the fear that gripped Selina earlier was even more acute then before. She did not want to be asked any questions. The redhead was sort of afraid of the truth. In many ways it was her weird hypocrisy, she was an advocate for the truth when it came to her friends and their lives, but she did not like to own up to the truth in her own. Now she was going to be forced to answer truthfully, "I, erm, guess we're done... is it my turn then?" She was shaking just slightly.

"I know I seem ungrateful," Vivi straightened her deerstalker and patted her cheeks. Maybe that would somehow keep her from being all blotchy and awful. Hopefully. "I was trying for levity... some humor to keep this from me being some sort of messy meltdown." Because if Vivi was anything in the world, she kept herself pulled together.

Usually.

"Thank you for... not being weird. If I didn't feel so bad about..." About liking her best mate, who happened to like a girl she couldn't help but admire a bit. "Anyway. I'd still feel wrong." It didn't help that Louisa was so well-liked. Imagine Vivi thinking she could take anything away from a girl like that.

Not that she wanted to do any taking. Just... coveting what she couldn't have.

"So let's focus on you, since I'm the sorriest example of a Ravenclaw. Lost all my sense." She smiled crookedly and tried to think of a light question for her friend. Easy question. Unembarrassing question. "Do you see a long future for Watson and Mary?"

Wrong? Ugh, that was the problem with Ravenclaws. They were always so logical about everything. Feelings did not have to be logical... just because someone got their first did not mean that all of the sudden they owned the person. If Vivi liked someone she deserved the chance to at least let her feelings be known and let him decide. People deserved a choice and all of life was not logical. Oddly enough, Elektra had taught her that.

"I AM weird," Selina laughed, "but you're welcome, I guess. Nothing to be weird about. Feelings are normal." She smirked and added cheekily, "Even for Ravenclaws." It was kind of true. Ravenclaws could be weird when it came to feelings. Anything they couldn't find in their books Selina felt scared the birdies. And romance was not in books or at least not the ones Selina read she did not read.

OH NOW IT WAS HER TURN! UGH there it was. The panic. It was back and all she could think of was that she could run now and go and hide in the broomshed until all of the drama was over. The spell could wear off and then she could go and live her life as if she had NEVER been asked questions before. Yes, she could totally do that. Besides, she was fast. Her little legs were deceptively fast- she could make it.

However, she never got the chance because Vivi asked her a question and she blurted out the answer without thinking, "I'm not sure, actually." The redhead blinked. Wait, what? What was Vivi's question again. Oh yeah, did she see a future for her and Gideon...

...honestly, Selina did not know. "I've never really thought about it," Selina answered truthfully, "I'm sort of taking it day by day. I can't say what the future will bring. If I'm being honest though... I don't know. I mean, I've never KNOWN anything else..." Was that a bad thing? That was also something she did not know.

"It's weird to like your best friend, and it's weird to like the boyfriend of someone you like. It makes you feel like you're... lying to people, when all you're really doing is withholding a truth that will make them unhappy." And those weren't the same thing. She wouldn't ever lie about how she felt, not even to Vick.

She couldn't help but notice that Selina was starting to look nervous. Really nervous. Not a whole lot of trust here between Watson and Sherlock, or else Selina had secrets she didn't want to spill. Either way, it was about the easiest question ever. No pressure.

"I like that answer. I hate people who are sure of something like that... how can you know you can love someone forever when you're still trying to figure out who you are." So that was Vivi's version of acceptance. "Giddy is the only boyfriend you've ever had?"

Best friend? Vivi was best friend's with Louisa? Selina HIGHLY doubted that. The only person that Louisa really hung out with now was her bloomin' boyfriend. It was like whenever someone else was in the room they completely disappeared if Vickers was there. The redhead had seen it more times then she would have liked to attest to if she were being honest with herself. PDA was... gross? Yeah, gross. And goggly eyes TOTALLY counted. Merlin, leave those looks to the broom closet, not the middle of classes. People were trying to learn or in Selina's case- come up with new plays for Quidditch.

OHHHHHHHHHHH... she meant best friend as in Vickers, not Louisa. Oh well, erm, that made more sense now that she actually thought about it. For a minute there, Selina was about to laugh and say something extremely off color about sharing and whatnot, but now she did not need to. She was glad she had figured out she was misinterpreting something before she went ahead and said that. Right, well, THAT would have been awkward.

Nodding to Vivi, Selina said truthfully, "I think you should still tell him. People spend their entire lives being afraid to say something or speak up... and then kick themselves when five years have gone by and they had done NOTHING to make themselves happy. Sometimes you just have to take a chance, yeah?" Translation- tell him.

The redhead nervously started to pick at her nails after she answered Vivi's question. It was the truth. Merlin, it felt so weird saying that all to her, she had never told anyone that. So many people expected her to just know, but she didn't. Selina BARELY knew what she wanted for dinner, let alone what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. It was a scary prospect and, also, she had never had any other experience with any other boy. It was scary to think that she could have anyone else or that anyone else would want her. She was just Selina. Plain, old Selina. Kurumi was the girl that all of the boys wanted- Selina was just one of the boys. That question made her all uncomfortable in all of the weird places in her insecurities.

"Yeah, my only boyfriend..." she said trailing off.

"I'll tell him," Vivi said quietly, shifting her eyes a bit to the side to give Selina a glance. She would, and not just because Selina said to (although mostly because Selina said to), but because she was essentially an honest person and she felt like a liar all the time right now. "But in my own time. I need to get myself under control first."

Or else there would be tears and flailing and violent grabbing and kissing. Or at least the first two.

She listened thoughtfully to Selina's words about her boyfriend, about Gideon, and she wasn't sure why Selina seemed to feel so bad about it. Perhaps because people did pair up at Hogwarts like they were forced to do it... perhaps because she felt pressured to not be alone and to know what she wanted right now? "I've never had a boyfriend. Not ever. So you're ahead of me. You'll have to tell me how it is... how to do it."

Awesome, Vivi was going to tell him. She knew that the girl was not lying about that because, well, she couldn't exactly lie right now under the influence of the potion, now could she? So the fact that she was actually going to tell Vickers was cool. There was definitely a reason why Selina liked Vivi besides being really attractive because Selina only hung out with pretty people. Vivi was really forward and blunt and so was Selina in a lot of respects. So they got on. And she was glad Vivi was going to let her affections be known.

"Fine," Selina grinned, "Take as long as you like. Just don't WASTE a bloody opportunity when it comes a knockin' at your door, Vivi." And that was true. Selina NEVER wanted to miss an opportunity if one ever came to her, which... one seemed like it might be coming to her soon. She would just have to wait and see if it was coming true. Dreams were tricky and that post she had received had not been super descriptive.

What was it like to have a boyfriend? "I've been dating Gideon for three years," Selina said point blank, "I can't tell you really. We've gotten so... comfortable I wouldn't really know what its like to start a relationship anymore. You're asking the wrong girl there." That was all true, it had to be. She could not lie right now.

Vivi wasn't sure she'd know if opportunity was knocking or not, but she'd do her best to answer. Or... whatever one was supposed to do when opportunity showed up. Whatever it looked like. Should she ask about that too... or maybe they were done with asking questions?

She had a LOT of questions, though... and no one she was sure she could ask. Selina acted so strange about boyfriend questions, which was especially odd considering how she was the one in the most settled relationship. She could ask Kurumi, but the Gryffindor would blush and stutter through embarrassment. And she'd rather rip out her own hair and choke herself with it than ask Louisa or Vickers. So.

"Comfortable sounds really nice, though. Someone who knows you and puts up with the bad spots and loves you regardless. I think it sounds... wonderful. Isn't it?" Stupid question.

Run.

and Hide.


That was Lily's reaction to all the stuff happening around the castle. She was scared and had already written to Benjy. So now there was nothing to do but find a good hiding place and stay there until Phoenix returned with Benjy's note back. Taylor and some of her other friends had already come by her hiding place and tried to convince the third year to come back down to the Great Hall. But the redhead wouldn't budge. She had now missed both lunch and dinner and was starting to shiver as the sun had gone down and the castle began to get colder with night approaching. Even curling up as much as she could wasn't helping.

Louisa headed down from the tower with Cuddles trailing behind her. It was almost dark now and the dinner was probably about to be served, her stomach growled loudly answering the thoughts going in her head. "Yeah, yeah.. we'll eat something." Recently, her anxiety was growing and you wouldn't see the Ravenclaw sitting still in one place. She was either pacing with a book in her hand, or following the bratty students making sure they're not up to no good, or even chewing on her fingers and just staring at Vi-- a certain boy and trying to figure something out. And as she slept, the man's grip on her hair would get stronger and he'd haunt her dreams, they were mostly nightmares about her NEWTs anyways.

But Louisa was very very good at keeping her emotions at bay, and so far she'd done a great job of keeping the nonchalant tough mask on. She didn't want it to waver now, in her last two months in Hogwarts. Let alone the badge hanging on her chest, it required special public attitude anyways. Again, she found herself wondering how on earth Paulie pulled it off so well!

Just as she rounded the corner of the corridor, lost in her thoughts, a small curled up figured startled her. Louisa's hand shot to her chest as she cursed loudly, and took a moment to breath. "... who's this?" No classes were open at this time and this shadow was too small to be a professor. Louisa approached slowly and the red hair stood out. "Lily? What are you doing here?!" Six floors away from the Great Hall!

Six floors away from the Great Hall!
Lily had never realized how cold the castle got at night, even in the winter months. It was only now that she hadn't eaten since breakfast and had been sitting in her spot for hours that she noticed that the castle got cold fast.

Shivering as she sat there, the redhead didn't even flinch when somebody cursed nearby and then called out to find out who it was. Nobody needed to know that she was only going to sit there all night and not leave the spot until she got her owl back. The only problem was that the somebody wasn't just walking past. That somebody was going to try to get an answer from her.

The third year quickly flipped her hood on top of her head, hiding her hair and face from decent view before turning her head to get a look at the person. She started down by the person's feet and noticed a kitty. A familiar kitty. "Cuddles?" That also meant... "Louisa? Is that you?"

Selina assumed that the two of them were done talking about the Vickers thing for now. She did not know the guy well, but if he was nice to Vivi wasn't that all that mattered? Also, he had to have nifty hats as well. Someone like Vivi could ONLY be friends with people who had nifty hats. Case and point: Miss Selina Arden Skylar. She was the Princess of nifty hats because Vivi was the Queen. OH WAIT! DID THAT MEAN THEY WERE RELATED?! Score. Although how would the ginger explain the blonde to her Mum? Yeah.

But when they got back to the boyfriend thing Selina was suddenly very nervous. She had never really liked talking about her and Gideon in the first place. It was her personal business, but now that she had no choice BUT to talk about it, she found the subject more awkward then it should have been. Did she love Gideon? Well, yes, she did. It should have been easy then. Right?

Wrong. It was really hard.

She knew that the answer to Vivi's question should have been simple, but it wasn't. And Selina did not know why it wasn't. "It is, but sometimes..." The truth potion made her unable to stop the words, "I wonder what our relationship really is... like if we are only together because its all we know. And that scares me." It always had. She cared about Gideon SO much... but that thought always troubled her.

There were so many emotions on Selina's facile, pretty face, and Vivi was amused by every single one of them. She leaned against the wall and waited for her friend to get out whatever it was she was struggling to say.

Only... how was she supposed to give advice to someone when she had ZERO romantic experience? She would hate HATE to be bored with someone... that had been her thought for years, really, that being with someone boring would be worse than being alone. That being with anyone would eventually be terribly boring.

"I think you always have to face the things that scare you, somehow, but I also think you have to figure out how to trust yourself. Merlin knows I'm terrible at that, so you shouldn't trust a word I say to you." And she meant it, since she was in full out honesty mode. "Maybe we should... go hide under our beds until the potion wears off. I'd hate you to talk to Mary when you're feeling so... honest."

Louisa snorted once before she squatted in front of Lily and took her wand out, "Lumos," some light wouldn't hurt. "Of course it's me." Cuddles was now snuggling at Lily's feet. "What are you doing here?" They didn't have classes and the common rooms were still locked. The older Ravenclaw didn't want her little friend to be anti-social and hiding from everyone else..

.. unless there was some bully at school who was annoying her? But Lily knew that Louisa was there for her and would help her no matter what it was. Well, it was true that the head girl was a bit too distracted lately with the things at Hogwarts and the study for her NEWTs, let alone the post-Hogwarts plans that seem to be constantly changing, but despite all that Louisa is there for Lily whenever she needed her. Better to hear the girl's answer first though before jumping to conclusions.

Sitting in her dark little hiding spot, Lily had to squint her eyes until they had adjusted to the presence of light. Glancing down at the kitty, the third year started to pet it, gently of course. What was she doing here? That was a good question. "I'm waiting for Phoenix to come back." To come back with Benjy's note that said she could go home. Otherwise she would be staying in her hiding spot until everything was back to normal.

As the redhead sat there, curled up in a ball waiting for Louisa to accept the answer and head down to the great hall where everyone had to be eating by now, she just stared at the ground, absentmindedly petting Cuddles. Only by the light of the head girl's wand could one tell that the third year's face was wet, obviously with tears. She had been crying as she sat there. She was scared about the whole locked-out issue and she didn't feel nearly as safe nor as comfortable sleeping down in the great hall with everyone else.

But the third year didn't say anything to her older friend because she didn't want to add another thing to the list of stuff that the redhead knew the head girl had to do. She almost wanted to protect her ravenclaw buddy and deal with her problems on her own. The only issue with that was that Louisa was here now... and Lily didn't know what to do to fix her problems.
