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.

Lei frowns, almost handing it over to him. "How did you do that?" she asks, instead, curious. Her eyes are big, as if he's about to tell her the meaning of life. "Are you supposed to treat all animals like that for them to notice you? Do you do anything else or do you just sorta, tie the letter?" She wants to be able to do it herself, of course, and she's getting really excited about it. Suddenly getting a little shy, she adds in one breath, "Meep sorry I normally just text my parents and that's already so confusing I really have no idea how I'm supposed to communicate with them when there are animals involved sorry."

The girl's amazement amuses him - all he'd done is click his fingers and act mildly abusive to a bird and she looked like he'd just found the cure for cancer or something. Extending a hand and scratching the owl under the chin, he shrugs, a daft little smile on his face. "You've just gotta show it who's boss. Be a bit snappy, then tie the paper to its leg and set it on its way. They're clever little buggers, they know what they're doing." When she speaks super fast and quiet, he kind of has to concentrate to hear her but it's cute nonetheless. "Text?"

"With a phone. But I was told that if I bring it to Hogwarts it mght explode and wow, I can't let that happen because my parents are already doubting my abilities to take care of it because I'm always dropping it and the screen is so shattered, so I can't let it explode." she says, distractedly, more focused on watching the owl curiously. She attempts to tie the paper to the owl's leg, her fingers fumbling a little bit, but she gets there. She stares at it, like she can't believe she just did that. "I can't believe I just did that." she says, voicing her thoughts.

"Yeah, I heard Muggle stuff doesn't work very well here." The owl twitches and fumbles with the paper attached to its leg, clearly displeased with the new package, but the stern glance Louis gives it makes it shut up. "That would be lit, though, something exploding as soon as you brought it into school. I'll have to try that." The last sentence sounds more like a mental reminder than anything, before he snaps back into a cheesy grin. "See? Easiest thing ever. Where's it being sent to?"

She frowns thoughtfully. "The easiest thing ever would be breathing, or maybe eating ice cream. This isn't easy. If you weren't here then I'd have hypothermia by now trying to figure it out." she says, before answering him. "My parents. They're in London. Is it like a real letter? Do I need to write their names and address somewhere? And don't buy a phone just to watch it explode; you might get hurt."

Wow, this girl really is clueless. It's endearing, though, and Louis nods enthusiastically, hoisting the letter into view - nearly taking the owl's leg with it, but oh well. "Yeah, just scribble their deets on there somewhere. I dunno how they do it, it's not like they can read." It takes him a few seconds to catch up on what she said beforehand, and his brow crumples when he finally does. "I know, right? It's pissing cold up here. You'd think they'd put shutters up on the windows or something."

"I don't think shutters fit in with the whole ancient castle vibe they have going on here," she says, taking a pen out from her pocket, scribbling the details onto the back of the letter, using her other hand to act as a surface for her to write on the paper with. When she's done, the owl flies away. "Oh! It just knew? That's cool. Oh my goodness, thanks a lot. You're really smart, wow."

He's really not, and the compliment is completely unwarranted, but he revels in it. Taking off his baseball cap and bowing with a comic flourish, he smirks, showing his pearly whites. "Here all week. And since I am, you might as well know my name." He thrusts his hand out, secretly impressed with himself at the damn smoothness of that. "Louis, fourth year. But my friends call me Lou."

She stares at Louis, awestruck, like he hung the moon and all the stars in the sky. That was so cool. He's so good at talking to people! "I'm Aleina but I like Lei better. Like the flower things from Hawaii. And I'm a third year." she says. She smiles a little bit when she realizes something. "Aw. 'Lei', 'Lou'... We kinda match. Does that make sense? If it doesn't, it's okay, normally people don't really get me and — " Please don't realize you're too cool for me and leave. " — yeah."

The securing of his cap back on his head is a much less graceful procedure, as he has to shove all his curls beneath it, but he gets there eventually. "Aleina's a cute-ass name," he announces, folding his arms across his chest, sleeves pulled over his knuckles. "Lei and Lou. Lou and Lei. We sound like a double act," he grins.

She might actually die from excitement this is going so well she's actually making a friend thank you Jesus. "I like your name too. It's really nice." she says, "Yeah, sounds like the type of indie music duo you'd find in a magazine. Like Oh Wonder or something."

What's Oh Wonder? Who the hell knows. He doesn't want to question here though, and make her uncomfortable, so he beams a cheesy grin and nods like he knows what she's on about. "I mean, we could do that - I'm told I'm like Slash on guitar." He's really not. "But unfortunately I sound like a cat being ironed when I try to sing. In fact, my mum said that I shattered windows once when trying to hit the high note in Chandelier." Another owl flutters over, interested, and Louis scratches its head. "We can't all be Sia, I suppose." His reason for knowing Muggle songs is definitely his mum's awful interest in them.

"I wouldn't want you to be Sia. Then you'd be hiding your face all the time with some wig and I like being able to see it. Your freckles are cool." she says automatically, without thinking about how normal people probably don't platonically compliment stranger's faces often. "I can't sing either. Looks like our music career will be short-lived."

He's like, genuinely bowled over by the easy compliment, but he plays it off with a mock gesture of putting his hands under his grin and posing, dramatic. "I hate my freckles. I dunno where they came from, everyone in my family looks like models and then there's me looking like somebody sneezed on my face." He scrunches his face up, shakes his head. "Eh. It never stopped Taylor Swift. She got Grammys."

"I like your freckles." she repeats. "They're like constellaions on your face." She almost laughs at his last remark. "Also, foul, Taylor Swift is a gift. Her songs are good. I live vicariously through all of them."

His face scrunches up, over the top like everything he does in life. "She's such a snake, though. What she did to Kanye was gross, and then Kim Kardashian served her ass to her on a pla- oh my god, I sound like Adelaide. Forget all of that." His marathons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is something he'd rather keep secret, thanks. "We will have to agree to disagree, Aleina." His face is light, boyish, to show he's only joking.

"Adelaide as in Estelle's sister Adeleaide who she said is sort of like a real life well dressed antagonist from a Disney Channel Original movie?" she asks, remembering the name. "Actually, there are probably a gazillion Adelaides in the world and I'm probably being stupid again."

"Oh my god, you know more of my family than I do," he says, mildly horrified that she's already been introduced to the messes that are Adelaide and Estelle. "Adelaide is the one who manages to sneak into clubs because she looks about twenty. Imagine Wednesday Adams with eyeliner and too much spare time on her hands." He pulls a face; it's not that he's bitter about his family being so spread out and all over the place that he gets no attention, but it totally is. "I think you're on about the right one."

Lei feels a little terrified. Adelaide sounds like the type of person who could step on her if she wanted to. "I haven't met her yet." she says, "But I met Estelle the other day. Is she a sister? Cousin? Estelle... Baudelaire, right? She's nice. She's in my year."

He actually has to stop and think for a second. "Cousin. I have too many family members." It doesn't occur to him that he might be oversharing; in fact, it's nice that he finally has to the chance to talk crap about them, seeing as they're usually always around him. "They're everywhere. I turn a corner and three more Baudelaires pop up. Like dandelions."

"I'm an only child. I'd love that." she says, "But I guess not everything's perfect." Except for maybe Louis because he's so cool and he's still talking to her, what the actual f-ck?

A bewildered look on his face, he shakes his head wildly, probably giving himself whiplash in the process. "Oh my god, no, I'd kill to be an only child. All the attention on me? Please." It sounds a bit arrogant but that doesn't phase him. Without any warning or ask, he loops his arm around Lei's, beaming like a child with a new toy. "Well, now you've sent your owl off on its little journey, how about you join me to the Kitchens where we can find the tub of cookies I hid there and make ourselves sick on chocolate chips?"

Chocolate chips? Lei looks at Louis like she's halfway in love. "You're perfection." she says, sounding so ridiculously genuine and serious about it. "Yes please. That would be amazing!"

He does not blush, thank you very much. Luckily, the peak of his cap is shading his face, so any colour that doesn't show up isn't visible. "Mais oui, mais oui," he says, not knowing what it means. "Here all week."

It suddenly dawns on her that they're linking arms, and she suddenly, she's smiling so wide it looks like her face might split open. "You can speak French?" she asks, oh my gosh I would like to hank God but also Jesus. This whole friendship thing is going so well. "You're so cool. Let's go? I'm kinda new so you'll have to lead the way."

Not gonna lie, he is really enjoying this. "Aye, I do." He doesn't. "The Kitchens' like, miles away. There's loads of bloody moving staircases, so we'll be starving by the time we get there." He starts to walk, leading her down the stairs and out of the tower.
