Quad Battlements

250px-Hp7b trl10441

There are battlements all around the top of the Quad (or Paved Courtyard) which serve as defense lines when invaders or enemies attack Hogwarts. Inside, there are catwalks which connect the whole place and there are passages leading outside the battlements. The Viaduct Courtyard can be seen, and somewhat protected, from here.

He decided that he wasn't going to go to Transfiguration. Partially he thought the teacher gave off bad vibes, but also because there was a glorious spell of late-summer sunshine, which he was not going to let go to waste. He was sat at the battlements, looking out at the highlands.

Was she meant to be in a class? Probably. Regardless, all the lessons at the moment seemed to be 'brief introductions', which she didn't need because she'd actually read the set books. After careful consideration, she'd decided instead to go exploring some more and ended up here - and apparently not alone. "Oh, hi."

"Shh, listen." He says, as a gust of warm Southern wind approaches, whistling ever so slightly. "It's one of my favourite sounds." He says, before turning around to see the new face. "Good evening. I'm Florian." He says, holding his hand out for her to shake. His parents are very middle class, so this is a normal, if not casual,  introduction for him.

She smiles at the sound, her head colouring it blue. "Yeah, it's super pretty. I'm Roshani, by the way," she replies, shaking his hand without hesitation. "What're you up to, other than listening to the wind?"

"That's a really pretty name. You probably hear that a lot though, from awkward middle class white people." He says, being brutally honest. He shrugs, "I'm skipping transfiguration. I heard from the grey lady that the professor has barely got out of school and is a bit strange. Plus the weather is too nice, for once." He says, "You?"

"Oh my god, literally all the time," she said. "Thanks, though. I guess it's exotic?" A laugh. "I'm probably missing transfiguration too, but I didn't actually check," she smiles, "Classes seem to be for people who didn't read the set books right now, and I'm not about that uneducated life."

He chuckles. I like her. She tells it how it is. "You know what, don't even get me started on 'exotic', its so racist." He says, cracking a grin. Are you....making a friend? "I wish people would do the reading before hand. I just don't get how anyone walks in unprepared."

"I know, right? It makes me want to jump off a bridge," she returns the grin, thankful that at least someone in this school gets it. "And that goes for 'exotic' and a lack of preparation."

He allows himself a smile. "So what do you normally do in your spare time besides listen to the wind with people you've just met, Roshani?"

"I'm trying to make a mental map of Hogwarts, right now, since I no longer have access to the internet. Woe is me," a pause, and she shrugged. "I read a lot. How about you?"

He grins, "I kind of like getting lost, but when you do make that map send a copy to me, because I don't even know where I am right now." He leans against the battlement. "I like watching the weather." He says, proudly. "Someday, I'm going to find a way to magically predict it." He says, trying to sound important, but in reality, sounding like a kid who's got big dreams.

"That's cool!" she says, then, "Just make sure it's more accurate than the muggle scientists' predictions. They're always wrong."

He smirks, "It's almost rude, how inaccurate they are." He agrees. "Did you grow up with a lot of muggles, then?" He asks, recalling her mentioning internet as well.

"Yeah, I'm muggleborn," she says. "It's kind of crazy, how they manage to keep this entire world hidden. I'm guessing you're pureblood? Or half?"

He chuckles, "That must have been a shock to your parents?" He nods, "Yeah, half-blood. But we lived in a muggle community for all my life, so I kind of understand muggles? They're pretty cool."

She nods, "Yeah, my parents are super religious so they were like, extra confused," a laugh, "I guess they're cool, since they do so much without any magic at all, but Hogwarts is like a literal fairytale! I guess I'm a bit biased, though."

"That's true....One never realises how lucky they are if they're born into a magical family....So besides the fairytale part, and the getting lost part, how are you finding life at hogwarts?" His voice is friendly and jokey.

"The classes would probably be interesting if I hadn't read everything already," she begins, "and the people are nice enough. Haven't found anyone I've clicked with yet, though. The library's amazing. What about you?"

He gives her an emphatic smile. "I know what you mean. Everyone's nice enough, but I'm always worried that I won't meet a friend or someone who I get along with..." He pauses, "Besides you, of course." He says, smiling. "And the library is great! I think it'll really help with my research! I want to get into the restricted section, but I doubt I'll be allowed..."

She smiles at the assertion they're friends now. "I think we'll just have to become some teacher's favourite to get access to the restricted section. Or get an invisibility cloak or something," she says, because obviously they're now best friends and partners in crime.

He chuckles, "If we want to become a teacher's favourite, we should probably go to class instead of watching the weather." he says with a little laugh.

He chuckles. "Sounds like a plan. We should probably both try and find someone, before reconvening? Then it's operation: restricted access, and smooth sailing." He says, acting like it's the biggest deal ever.
