What's new? This is Hogwarts, there's never anyone worth talking to around here.
Sometimes I try to forget that part of being around this place.
You know what? We should start a revolt or something.
Tracey and I were thinking of starting a band. Do you play bass guitar?
Yes, yes. Revolt of the Slytherins. Would work if the school didn't suspect every single one of us to be Death Eaters.
It was a pastime. What have you two been thinking about along those lines? A band sounds like something worth doing, actually.
But wouldn't the expect it of us? I mean, they all already think we're trying to blow up the world. Might as well give the people what they want, right?
Well, we were thinking of calling it The Yawns. We would do The Snakes, but ignorant Ravenclaws have decided to make up "The Claws", so it's a no-go. I'd sing and do lead guitar, maybe some keyboarding. Tracey's learning to play drums. Malcom said he could help us financially somewhat, so we've got almost everything. Except a bassist.
Sure, Milli. We'll revolt after I've gotten a bit of sleep.
The Snakes is a little too cliche anyway, I think the Yawns is fine, but the rest sounds like a thrill. I used to take music lessons when I was little and it was for bass, so I suppose I could help out. Could be something productive.
I thought of it when I was yawning. Creative, eh? We could probably think of something better. If you have any ideas, tell me. Excellent. We'll need to start practicing soon, I've already started some tunes. Tracey will be thrilled to hear.
Very original. I wish I had that much creativity, Millie. I'll be sure to ask you for help in naming newborns, as well. Anytime we have to practice, I'll be around. I hardly see Tracey, though. So, I wouldn't know.
Excellent. I'm not sure about Tracey, she's been in hiding or something lately. I'll find her at some point.
Okay, then. Just come find me when something happens.
What would you like to talk about then?
What's your favourite dinosaur?
I see. And what does Brutus look like?
He cant play fetch, silly!! He to littel!
Maybe you should teach him, I bet he'd like the game. It's fun.
But hes litteler tan meee!
Well, I sure you could find some fun little game that you both can play.
WANNA COM TO MY TEA PARTY???
I would be delighted. Where is it?
I will be there. Promise.
PWOMIS???? If yur NOT yur not gonna get any COOKYS!!!
Oh dear. Now I have to go if there will be cookies.
Terrie tode me hed make som but hes not here yet!!
That's okay, I'll come anyway.
YOUD BETTER COM OR ILL BEET YOU UP!!!
Huh. Well you got only this year to go.
I've got two.
I suppose you're right. Ah, I would pity you, but I don't pity anything. So, good luck with those two
I find plenty to do around here, and plenty of people to talk to. Take a step out of the dungeons, you might surprise yourself.
Goes to show how much you know. Or you think you know. I'm more often out of the dungeons than in them. Not my fault everyone thinks every Slytherin they see is going to Avada them.
Even if we want to. Too naive for my liking if they think that much.
Can't say I ever thought you guys were going to AK everyone around you. If I thought that, I would never bother making the trip to Kings Cross every September.
I just think if you made the effort, you might surprise yourself. People around here aren't that dull.
You see, effort is very hard for a Slytherin to achieve. Seeing as their are various theories coming from jokes or misunderstood sarcasm, that we're death eaters, vampires, soulless beings, etc., we can't make much of an effort if people are so cold and biased against us.
If other people are going to be ignorant, that's surely their problem. I just think you can't let that color the way you see everyone else.
You have a point. Well, once I find someone to converse with, I'll be as normal.
With the ball coming up, I guess you'll have plenty of opportunity to find someone to talk to.
