The Owlery

Owlery

The Owlery is a room on the top of Hogwarts Castle's West Tower, where the school owls and the students' owls live during the school year. It is a circular stone room, rather cold and drafty, because none of the windows had glass in them, in order to allow the owls to come and go freely. The floor is entirely covered in straw, owl droppings, and the skeletons of mice and voles. Many owls nest on perches that rise right up to the top of the tower. During the winter months, the room is very cold, to the point that one has to be careful with ice on the higher landings.

It's grey and cloudy and the wind is blowing. Everyone's advised Blær out of coming to The Owlery. Come on, it can wait!. To the naysayers, Blær only smiled at them. She never missed sending out one of her weekly letters home. Quietly standing to the side, she's gently tying letters to random school owls. There's always so many things to send, so as soon as she's petted and patted an owl, she moves on to another for the same routine. She's so lost in her routine, that Blær doesn't really notice whose going in or out.

Freddie comes into the owlery and makes sure that he's got his letters in hand, ready to go over to his owl only to see Blaer tying her own letter to his. "Well, I never thought I'd see this," He said with a chuckle as he walked over to her, "Are you trying to hijack my owl?" He asked with a raised eyebrow, but with a playful tone.

Blær is startled out of her little routine by Freddie's entrance, and it's only now that she realizes that this owl wasn't a school owl at all. "Oh my gosh! I didn't-I'm so sorry!" She's trying to find the words to say something but she's too flustered to even think. "I didn't realize it was yours!" Blær starts gently untying her letter. "I'm not trying to steal, I swear!"

He laughed a little at that, “It’s fine, I’m just teasing you,” he told her as he Pet his owl. “I thought you would recognize my owl by now, you nearly do this every week,” he said with a chuckle.

She's trying to untie her letter from Gallum's leg as fast as she can. Although her face is flushed red from embarrassment, there's a smile on her face that is acknowledging the humour in the situation. "I know, but I'm still sorry!" Blaer shakes her head, moving on to the next school owl. "Gallum wasn't mad about nearly being stolen, though." She winked at him, teasing him back just easily as she would her siblings.

“It’s because he knows you by now, I’m sure he wouldn’t put up any fight,” he said with a chuckle. “It’s fine, Gallum likes you and I don’t mind you using him. Believe me he needs the exercise,” he joked and poked his owls belly, making the owl hoot at Freddie. “You sending out your weekly letters?” He then asked her.

"Still, if I had taken him without asking you, I would've been saying sorry for the next three months. You know me by now." That much would've been true, but that was only because Blær really would've wanted to express how sorry she would have been. Her attention shifts from the conversation to the owl in front of. A fi al tight tie to the leg was all that was needed until she sent it off. Blær's arm extended itself into a final wave of goodbye. It was only then that she remembered that she was in the middle of a conversation. "Oh! Yeah, my family sent me a lot this time and I always try to match the amount they send, so I'm using up a lot of the owls."

“I’m sure after the first week I would make sure to let you know that’s it’s totally okay,” he said with a small smile. He patiently waited for her, knowing she zoned out sometimes but didn’t mind. It wasn’t the little things like that that made him like being her friend. “How is it? Getting so many letters?” He asked curiously, “Do you also get packages?”

"That because even if I do something bad, you always say 'it's not that bad' because I'm a 'cinnamon bread' or whatever word you say in America." Her Icelandic accent came through thick at the 'cinnamon bread', but in the back of her mind she knows that isn't the word and that she'll go crazy if Freddie doesn't remind her of it soon. "Actually, it's fun. It's nice knowing what goes on at home with my parents and my siblings. They're always curious about what I do and how I'm feeling so I try to tell about my days and how I'm eating." At the mention of the word 'package', she shyly draws out her own small package. "My stepmom got me some really nice pair of gloves because she said it was cold in England. I guess she thought that it must be pretty cold here too. I thought I'd get her some special chocolate to warm her up inside."

"A cinnamon roll," He corrected her with a small smile, "And it's true, you can't really do anything too bad," He said with a chuckle, before tying a letter to his owl and patting it's head before it flew away. "See? It's things like that, you're so sweet it makes me have a cavity," He said wholeheartedly, "I've never met someone as caring as you," He told her, before sitting down on a clean part of the floor. "How is everything at home? I hope your parents aren't too wild about you graduating and becoming an adult,"

The wind picked up a bit, but Blær took no notice of it. She picks a pretty tawny owl in order to deliver her last package of the week, and begins delicately tying her package to it. "What? That's not even a noteworthy thing. I do this all the time. So do other students. I'm just normal." She shakes her head, giggling softly. "I actually don't know?" Blær pauses, because in reality, she hasn't really considered the question in depth. "That's to the whole adult thing. Everyone is fine, really. My dad's doing some freelance writing and my stepmom got a job with the Ministry. My sister Embla is starting Hogwarts soon. I honestly don't know what I'm going to do. I mean they're chill, my dad's like 'oh my little girl! grown up so fast' but I have no idea what's in store for me so I'm just going to let? things? happen?"

"My family is pretty chill too, considering I have so many adult siblings that my parents are probably wondering when I'll finally be an adult," He said with a laugh. "I'm sure we'll both be fine though if we have each other, I know it's easier to go through adulthood with friends then by yourself," He told her and stretched a little. "I just hope I don't turn into one of those grumpy adults,"

"Can't relate, I'm the oldest so I'm going to have to figure it out by myself." Before she sends the owl off to its destination, Blær spends some time in petting and praising the owl. "Aw, you cutie, have a safe trip, okay!" Happily, she started waving goodbye at the departing owl, just as she did to the one before him. "Of course! I'd never think of leaving you alone in navigating adult life. It's like we're newborns, but like, adults, you feel?" Blær goes ahead and steals the stop next to Freddie, dusting the ground before sitting down. "You, a grumpy adult? Impossible."

"Blaer, whoever you get with is going to be one lucky person," He commented, thinking she was like the perfect human being ever. "For Halloween, you need to dress up as a cinnamon roll," He told her with a small chuckle. "Honestly though? You're so right about the newborn thing, I feel like I just reached my teenage peak only to be thrust back down to being a baby. By the time I'm an old man I'll finally understand life," He said with a small whine, "That's so unfair-"

"Don't be ridiculous. I'm going to adopt so many cats and be alone! Which is fine because I can deal with being alone and I like being alone. I'm too shy to ever even have someone like me back!" Her voice, which started off sounding amused, ended up sounding like she was about to cry at the end. However, it was also very obvious that her verge-on-tears voice was also quite mocking. "I'm just kidding. I don't know. I certainly don't see that in the near future. Maybe when I'm 100 or something." She lays her head back on the stone wall. "Haha, I honestly think that I'm never going to understand life. I don't even understand myself right now."

"There's no way that you aren't going to find someone, you're amazing!" He exclaimed, looking at her. "If you don't find someone then no one deserves to be in a relationship, you're the best girl on the market," He told her to try and build up her confidence. "We're both young, I just know working with dead bodies is what I want to do. I haven't even thought about what the future holds with me and Amelia... I wonder if she wants to marry me,"

She doesn't try to push the point on the existence of a phantom mysterious lover who will come and swoop her away. It'll only end up going the same way they've always debated this: Freddie fighting for a yes and Blær laughing as she insisted on no. Instead, she focuses on her best friend's marriage prospects, which was increasingly getting a chance of happening. "If you really want to know, you should ask her." Blær remarks with a lighthearted snarkiness. She only laughs when she looks at his face. There's certainly someone in his conversation that is thinking about the future.

“But we’re both so young, maybe I can promise her instead. I just don’t want to rush into anything,” he told Blaer with a heavy sigh. “Maybe after we both get settled in our careers and buy a house together, then we’ll talk about marriage.” He said, “But-“ He poked Blaer, “you’ll definitely be in my wedding, you can be the maid of honor or the ring bearer.”

"Yeah, when you've had enough of poking around at dead people, maybe then you can ask." She raises her eyebrows in amusement. It's getting a bit darker, she notices, but she doesn't say anything because she's enjoying herself and the rare moment where she and Freddie aren't busy enough with coursework to actually laugh and joke around. "You can be my best man...although I probably shouldn't say that to the face of my future husband before he gets jealous that he isn't the best man at his own wedding."

“At least dead people are easier to understand,” he said with a chuckle. He then laughed at her comment, “Well, I’m sure he can be the complimentary best man,” he told her with a small grin.

"Then why don't you marry one?" Blær starts laughing at her own lame, dark joke. "No, I'm just kidding. Some kid told me when I was younger that if I love ice cream so much, I should marry it. That freaked me out at the time. I'm probably freaking you out right now." She makes a hissing sound, which was meant to be humourous. "You're definitely going to be by my side when the time comes. Platonically, that is."

“Don’t worry, I’ve heard that joke a thousand times from my family,” he said and waved off the comment. He then squeezed her cheeks, “You’re so freaking cute, I would marry you but then it would Be weird,” he said with a laugh. “Platonic friends forever,”

Blær starts laughing again, lightly slapping his hands away. "Stop it! I am cute but that doesn't mean that you can pinch my cheeks." She lays her head on his shoulder, a purely innocent and platonic action from her. "Best platonic friends forever, you mean."

"Yes, best platonic friends forever, BPFF," He says with a small chuckle, and rested his head against hers. He was pretty glad that he had a best friend, someone to go through life with and be side by side for everything. "I"m glad I met you," He finally said.

Blær basks in the comfortable silence, content to just be in the moment. It's really getting dark. They should be getting back soon. But she stays where she is, too comfortable to make any sort of move. It seems like soft hours have opened. "Me too. I'm super grateful to have you in my life. I wouldn't know where I'd be without you."

"You know what I just thought? We're probably going to be sitting in this same position when we're like 80 talking about this same thing," He said with a small chuckle, the thought amusing to him. "I can't believe that time really goes around like that, weird huh?"

Blær doesn't reply at first. For a moment, she's lost in her little world. Content and cozy, she snuggles in a bit closer. Again, it's only because she's comfortable with him and there's no romantic feeling behind it. "I hope so. This position is super comfortable." She smiles, finding a bit of humor in her statement when in reality it was just a passing one. "I feel you. It feels like only yesterday that I met you in the Dance Hall.

"I know, and here we are about to graduate and become adults. It's so weird how time flies," He said and let out a small breath. He was content with her, and enjoyed her company. Someone who understood him and actually liked being around him, it was nice. He closed his eyes as he thought, and before long he fell asleep.

"Mhm, that's seriously only a few months away. I can't believe." The silence follows again, and Blær hums as she allows Freddie to collect his thoughts. That is, until she looks up and sees that he's fallen asleep. Oh. Well, in that case, Blær cuddles in a bit more and lets herself fall asleep too. Deep inside her mind, before she sleeps, there's the thought that they might die of hypothermia. But would they, really? Oh, well. And Blær falls asleep as well.
