Twin Returns

Post by Lawrence Keelan » Tue Dec 05, 2017 6:12 pm

"Hiding out?" Keelan's voice entered the astronomy tower before he did, dry.

Harry and he were familiar with one another over the past twelve years or so during Laurie's time as a hitwizard with the Ministry. Aurors and hitwizards didn't share the same quarters; the hitwizards' offices were a great deal more rowdy and casual than the auror office, but the DMLE and all of its subsidiaries nonetheless retained a degree of camaraderie and they had worked together on a few cases in the past.

Not to mention that Albus had just been sorted into Laurie's house, of which he'd very recently been granted the head of.

In anticipation for Christmas, almost the entire month of December saw Hogwarts transformed for the season, made all the more jovial by the blanket of snowfall surrounding the castle, and Laurie's dark outer robes were dusted with a silvery sheen of the stuff that he brushed off with gloved hands. "Little bird told me you made it back for the holidays. OK, big bird. Right before biting me on the nose. Sergeant's still an asshole," he huffed.

Sergeant was a grumpy owl native to Hogwarts' owlery that had been around as long as anyone could remember.

His brows rose and he looked toward the door as Laurie stepped in. They were acquainted the way vague coworkers were. Harry would not have considered them friends considering neither man had said more than a sentence of small talk to the other, but on the other hand they weren't complete strangers.

"Only to investigate a few reports in the forest." His eyes went back to the grounds stretching out before them, contemplative.

"Oh, yeah?" If it wasn't something, it was another, as the saying often went around the school. The magical energy in the area fed off of itself, practically, and turned the whole place into a haven for the weird and fantastical, with fascinating and often-times alarming results.

He merely nodded. He certainly hadn't climbed the twisting tower seeking out conversation, particularly not with a man he hardly knew, of a House he was... let's nicely say at odds with. It wasn't that Harry had a problem with Slytherin, exactly, but then again, maybe he did. Harry was finding reconciling his son's placement more difficult than he imagined it would be. It was all well and good to proclaim that he'd love him regardless of his House, and that part was true, but to love the House?

A House with members who had tormented him for years? Whose alumni went on to murder his parents, torture his friends?

It was a bit much to ask.

Maybe his boy knew that.

"Your son's settling in," Laurie settled on, eerie pitch black eyes gazing calmly at him as though he were somehow aware of Harry's internal tumblings. He leaned against the wall, arms casually crossed over his chest, the posture of someone there but not necessarily intrusive. "His peers have taken a liking to him." His lips hooked up faintly.

"I'm glad," he murmured, even though he was perfectly aware that one of his peers was Malfoy's kid and neither Harry nor Ginny thought that he was a particularly good influence on the child. It was impossible to avoid that now of course, they were housemates, but Harry could still frown in private to himself about it from time to time. "He took it pretty hard, I know. His older brother's Gryffindor."

As his mum was. As his dad was.

"Being the first to break tradition can be tough," Laurie nodded. "Especially when it comes down to Gryffindor and Slytherin. The competition can be pretty fierce," he laughed. "But your son's a good kid. He'll figure it out."
