It probably won’t be that bad this year, it’s next year you really have to worry about! Danny and Ro graduate this year, which means that Slate will be let loose! I’m sure you’ll be able to handle it, Uncle Artie. College is fun! I’m really enjoying it. I should be done with my bachelors after this semester and then it’s off to get my masters. I’m pretty excited!
Oh dear. Well, I have my ways of dealing with Slate so here’s to hoping I don’t get any more gray hairs added to the collection because of him. Good, that’s great to hear. I remember my own college days and how fun they were. It all seems like ages ago now though.
They act like pansies throughout the entire movie. And those types of guys normally don’t get the girl of their dreams in real life. And I don’t think that topic is up for discussion.
But what if I wanted to live dangerously? A hobbit hole? Really? I’d hit my head on the doorway every time.
Alright, whatever you say, Ro, but just so you know the jocks in real life might get the girl of their dreams but I doubt they can keep her happy. Why ever not? I’m your best friend, I think I deserve to know who the lucky lady is.
Well, then go for it, I suppose. Do whatever your heart desires and don’t be afraid to listen to it. But it’d be so cozy!
Have no fear, HeadmArtster is here. I’m thinking of changing that to my letter head, it’s got a ring to it. Anyway, this boy that Ral’s gone after seems to be a bit of trouble. Maybe you should give me the address of this diner so I can go take a look at him myself. Till then I’ll talk to Ral and see what I can get out of her or talk into her. Maybe she’ll respond better to hearing from Emma that this boy’s not good for her? Her and Em are pretty close after all, it might work. Either way, I’ve completely got this, Car. Take a deep breath and do your job wholemindedly. Mission Beauty&the Bum is now officially underway. I will not fail, Ninja Panda. HeadmArtster,over and out.
I could certainly use a buddy in there.
Just a reminder that classes start tomorrow 8am sharp for first to fourth years and depending on your schedule if you’re a fifth to seventh year. Once again if you have not picked up your schedules they will be available at the main hall till tomorrow afternoon and after that, at my office. Staff and faculty members you are advised to have your lesson plan up and ready by tomorrow morning and rough semester plans at my desk by the end of the week. I wish a good day to staff and students alike. I look forward to seeing you all get down and busy come tomorrow.
Oh, you mean the main characters of chick flicks? Those guys are pansies! And I don’t see me really rescuing the girl of my dreams from some jerk. Thankfully, she has good taste so it’s probably not something I’ll have to worry about.
An auror can be a potentially dangerous job, you know? I might do just fine as a curse breaker.
Are they really pansies if they end up with the girl of their dreams instead of the other guy? Oh really, and who exactly might this girl of your dreams be?
Maybe you should just not do anything that involves danger and being away all together and go on an adventure around the world with me and occasionally live in a hobbit hole when we’re not traveling.
Oh, silly Uncle Artie! You know my brother’s don’t know how to behave, I’m clearly here just to see you!
How are you, Uncle Artie? I barely got to see you over the summer, I’m so sorry! I’ve been busy with college and everything!
Perfect. Ah, well they haven’t been all that bad, but then again it’s only the beginning of the year. I’m quite terrified and amused all at once to see how they do this year. I’m good, I’ve been fairly busy getting things together for this year and trying to give Em and Alex the time of day as well. All these years later and I’m still not quite used to being a headmaster. And how is college treating you? Well I hope.
I’m like a movie? Pfft. I’m not that smooth, come on now. People in movies are far more eloquent than me.
I don’t know about all that. I’m good at Ancient Runes and Arithmancy— wow, I sound like a nerd— and after that it all kind of falls apart.
Not all the time. Usually the main characters end up being adorable, awkward dorks that save the girl of their dreams from winding up with jerks and end up being with her in the end. You’re like that kind of movie-except real.
Hey, being a nerd isn’t so bad. You’re strong, you like adventure, you like helping people. You could always become an auror, you know. You’d make a great one.
Just stopping in for a visit!
Well isn’t this a nice surprise? Came by to say hello to your old Uncle Art or to make sure your siblings are behaving, which is it? Either way, you come here, it’s always great to see you, sweetheart.
We went to Ireland, as well, obviously. Dad wanted to go see nana and his sisters. We stayed there for a while and then we went to Germany so we could check the other side of dad’s family. My cousin went to jail again because he danced naked on a bar and dad had to take him out of it because my great-aunt said she wouldn’t. It was a mess, really. Cael and Casey are bickering as usual. They act like kids all the time!
Sounds like you had a rather eventful summer. Ireland for us consisted mostly of sightseeing, watching the stars and picnics with gran but you seem to have had a whole different kind of fun. As usual, of course. Still, I miss them, especially Cael. He’s such a cutie, he is. Uncle Em and Oz are doing good too, I hope? Daddy’s been meaning to go visit you guys for the longest but headmaster duties and all, you know? Keeps him real busy.
Emma! I missed you too, how was your summer?
Good for the most part. Aside from the massive family gatherings the dads decided a vacation to Ireland to visit papa’s family would be nice so we did that. It was cold and cloudy for the most part, but I got to see gran so that was nice. How about you? How are Cael and Casey doing? I haven’t seen them around yet.
You know what I missed more than Hogwarts? Your face, G. It’s good to see you.
Then it’s a good thing that I wasn’t saying it for that reason. I’m good at not getting caught so I barely spend time there. Hmm, yeah, I tried cherry red last time to save him from having to go red faced with anger, but it didn’t work. I think Dad would have a cow then, all that glitter getting everywhere. Nah, can’t be a hippogriff or crazy magical animal man, Art. It’d be too obvious. I’d just have to say your name and they’d realize that it was you. Thinking ahead, that’s me. Fuzzy horse doesn’t have the same ring too it. Give me a day and I’ll come up with something better if llama is really that bad for you. Oh, fun, didn’t know he had spy equipment. The night keeps getting better and better.
Getting caught for doing what exactly, kiddo? Hah! Sounds like that was quite the spectacle. You need to take pictures of things like these, compile them into an album and give said album to him for his birthday many years in the future once its stuffed to the brim. Good point. Llama is pretty bad. I didn’t come this far in life to be referred to as a llama, you know. How about Fuzzy Phoenix. It is my patronus after all, it’d make sense. Ah, don’t tell your granddad I told you that. His father’s been involved in a few rather shady dealings more than once in his life. If anyone he’d have spy equipment than anyone else in the family.
Seriously, why don’t we get to go to the beach house? They describe every detail of that place all the time.
Oh, uh, yeah. I guess you’re— right. The original is always better. Just like with movies!
That’s nice of you to say, Em. But this is something that will make my dad happy. Plus, it’s something that I know I’m good at. I’m boss at Ancient Runes!
They even said they had a dog there! We should definitely bug daddy about it the next time we see him and Uncle Car too. Right, just like with movies. You’re a bit like a movie-you certain pull dialogues like you are sometimes.
Right, well if it makes Uncle Car happy…go for it. You’re good at a lot of things, Ro.
You never know. Roane is a bit of a dipshit.
My future? Meh. I don’t care. I live in the now or some cliche shit like that. I mean, it might be cool to be an auror or hit wizard. But I don’t have the patience or the grades for it. Plus, it’s too much damn work.
A dipshit, huh? Is that some kind of new slang for loser that you kids are using? I believe your father said the same thing, became a teacher and then decided he wanted to follow his dreams after all. Perhaps you’ll follow in his footsteps?
