Boathouse

830px-BOAT HOUSE

The boathouse is an underground harbour where the boats are stored. These are the same boats that are docked when the first years arrive to Hogwarts on 1 September every year. Up until 1995, there was a portrait of Percival Pratt hung on one of the inside walls of this boathouse. The portrait concealed a secret entrance to the Grand Staircase. Some small wooden boats are stored in the rafters of the ceiling.

After Pratt's portrait was taken away, there were only three entrances to the boathouse. The path outside (The Quad), the stairs that led from the Entrance Courtyard and the Lake.

Fireworks are occasionally set off from the boathouse exterior to signal a party.

"That's nice. He must be really cool." she says, "At least you'll have him during Christmas, right?"

"Hopefully," he mumbles, more to the water than to Lei, before shaking his head. "I still can't believe you don't celebrate Christmas. What a travesty. Has it always been like that?"

"For as long as I can remember." she replies, "It's not that bad. I don't have to wait until December for gifts. If I want something then I get to just buy it whenever I like as long as I deserve it."

That's - actually a side to it he didn't consider. Pulling an oh yeah face, he visibly weighs the pros and cons, before happily falling to the former. "But isn't gift-giving meant to be not what Christmas is about? I mean, that's totally what it is about, obviously. But like - still. It's meant to be about family and love and all that nauseating stuff."

She shrugs. "Something about how we have 365 days in the year and how we don't need to act extra cutesy on one of them." she says, "Sorry, my family's weird, I know."

Her apology makes him frown - why is she saying sorry? She's done nothing wrong? - and in an attempt to be reassuring, straightens up and grins. "Everyone's family is weird. Yours sounds like bliss compared to my pack of nutters." Shoving his cap back onto his curls and arranging it into something presentable, he lets out a long, drawn-out but relaxed sigh - before an idea hits up. He's nothing if not impulsive. "How cold do you reckon this water is? Is there a spell to heat water up?"

She thinks for a bit, really, really wanting to be impressive somehow, before an idea comes to mind. "I don't know if this'll work but..." She takes out her wand and aims it at the water, muttering the incantation for a spell she thought might work, trying to imagine more large scale effects. After a light is emitted from her wand, she touches the water with her hand, pleased to see that she was successful. "There!" she says, "Why do you ask?"

Leaning down, he submerges his own hand in the water; it's the right side of hot, bath-water temperature. "Perfect," he says, before, in one fluid motion, he hoists himself up and stands, before cannon-balling it into the lake. It's literally like jumping into a jacuzzi. After a few seconds under, he emerges and shakes his head, curls sending water everywhere with a massive, buzzed grin on his face. "Oh, man. The pool at home is like - nothing compared to this."

She yelps when water hits her, and while he seems like the type to do these kinds of things on a regular basis, sh's stillcaught off guard. She wipes off droplets of water from her face with the sleeve of her jacket. "Oh my f-cking gosh, you are going to freeze when you get out of there."

His hair instantly loses its bounce and clings to the side of his face, and he drags a hand through it, making it stick up in weird directions. "Eh, but I'm not out of here yet, am I?" He smirks, kicking his legs to keep himself afloat. "Are you jumping in or are you just gonna watch, like a creep?"

She turns a little red at his remark. Feeling challenged (what? he doesn't think i'm gonna jump in?), she takes a deep breath and jumps in as well, emerging from the lake with a gasp. Her hair is soaked now, and she rubs water out of her eyes. "I can't believe I did that." she says, "My hair is going to be the end of me later when it dries."

He's - genuinely surprised that she did that. Erupting into a genuine laugh that brightens his entire face, he smoothes his hair and the water from his face, shaking himself like a wet dog. "Eh, it's only hair." There's a crash as he brings an arm forward and sends a mini tidal wave towards Lei.

She shrieks playfully when the water hits her, her entire face lighting up like a bunch of fireworks. "You are so dead." She sends back a torrent of water in his direction. "Take that!" she exclaims, laughing.

Did he mention that he's literally the shittest swimmer this side of the galaxy? No? Well, who cares. He's not about the spoil this moment with his friend, especially the one who just nearly drowned him in a tidal wave. "Fuck," he coughs, spluttering as he comes back up from under the surface. "It's alright, I didn't need my lungs anyway." Then he splashes her again, kicking away.

Lei ducks underneath the water to avoid the incoming splash, going back up for air when it looks like it's over. "Here I was thinking we were friends." she laments, just kidding of course. "And then you turn on me like that? Traitor."

Adopting an offended expression, he puts a hand to his chest. "Um, ex-cer-use me? I didn't force you in here, you made the jump." He pushes himself to the side, brings his elbows up onto the edge of the lake and turns around, just floating there, kicking his legs back and forth like a lazy swimmer. The stars are up, big and bright. "Seriously though -" he begins, completely changing topic. "Say I was to hypothetically, possibly, totally get you something for Christmas... what would you like?"

She thinks for a while, looking up at the sky. "Like I said, I don't really get gifts, so I have no idea at all." she says, "But if I had to ask someone for something, it would be a rubik's cube. Not the normal one, though, that's red and blue and white and stuff. One of the odd and challenging ones; I like solving them." Even though at most it takes her a grand total of one minute to get through one. "I'm pretty boring, yeah. "What would you want?"

That little nugget of wisdom instantly gets banked inside his head; complicated-ass Rubik's cube. Done. He also adds a bunch of other brain puzzles and stuff he could pick up too, because just giving someone a cube seems like a bit of a dull present.  "Me? Um - in an ideal world, a cat," he says, lips twitching up just at the thought of having a pet. "But like, realistically... I dunno. Art supplies, maybe? I'm boring, too."

She could so get him a cat if she wanted to. She smiles at the thought of surprising her friend (!!!! friend!!! she has a friend!!!!). Just you wait. "You're into art? That's cute!" she says, "I can't draw anything to save my life."

It's weird - nobody in his family has never complimented him on his artwork, and yet Lei just did, and he's known her for about five minutes. "I'm no Da Vinci either," he comments, with a shy (!!!) smile. "It would be cool to paint the portraits for Hogwarts, though. I'll need someone to paint..." He trails off, eyeing Lei with a smirk.

She shakes her head. "No, thanks." she says, feeling shy. Admittedly, the idea of being drawn or painted or whatever sounds pretty awesome, but with her as th subject? Never. "I'm not that pretty so it's not gonna be fun to make or anything. The concept of making a moving painting is so cool though! I'm pretty sure you're gonna achieve that dream of yours someday! I have total faith in you."

He blinks, genuinely surprised at her lack of confidence. "Um, not pretty? Please." He leaves it at that, turning his head back to the stars. "And thanks. My uncle is like, the only one in the world who'd agree with you. What about you? What do you want to do?"

She shrugs. If her parents have any say (which they do), then she'd probably just play chess forever, which is fine with her, really. But... "Right now, I really wanna work for Cedrica Ackerman and Clarence Bishop." she says, "Either in the Department of Technological Advancement or for Witchagram, I don't know. Then when I grow up, I'll do my own thing. I just think it would be awesome to integrate more techy stuff into the wizarding world. But that's just me." Of course, all of this is said without being able to look Louis in the eye properly. She'd fight him more on how she's the furthest thing from pretty, but that would just make him compliment her more, probably which she will not! be able! to deal with!

"Oh, Clarence! We had him in for a photoshoot for Witch Weekly," he announces with a sudden bell of recognition. "Stiff as a board, poor guy. I dunno why they brought him in for a fashion shoot instead of Cedrica. Lisette just kind of had to point at stuff to make him stand there." It makes him giggle, the memory of a bewildered entrepreneur being obviously hit on by Lisette. "But he made Witchagram, so he can get away with that. That'd be so awesome if you worked for them, oh my god?"

"I don't even have a Witchagram, but yeah, that's the dream." she says, smiling at the thought of it. She laughs at his story. "I hate shoots." she accidentally lets slip, but continues before it can catch any attention, the awful memories of any time she was ever in a newspaper or magazine because of a tournament coming to mind. "I feel bad for him. He is handsome though," She bites the inside of her cheek as she says, feeling rather shy to say that out loud. "so I can see why Witch Weekly asked him to model. Hopefully it didn't turn out super awkward."

The stars above are big and bright, and Louis smiles, feeling more relaxed now than he has in days. "My cousin did the shoot - Lisette, her name is. I think she wants his clothes all over her floor for more than just professional reasons," he drawls. Wow, he's bitter about his family. "Poor guy, if my family gets anywhere near him, both his business and his social life goes down the swanee."
