She's already sat at a booth, waiting for the two Hogwarts students that had reached out to her.

He has no idea what this Malia figure looks like. Tori had described her as 'gorgeous but she looks like she could kill you', which is a vague but surprisingly helpful description - especially when Kevin's eyes fall upon a woman sat at a table who fills that criteria perfectly. Swallowing down the overwhelmed lump in his throat, he approaches her, preparing himself for embarrassment and misidentification. "Erm - hi? Are you Malia?"

Malia turns her head at the new arrival, a smile already adorning her face when she sees the boy. He reminds her of a young Mikhail Chakarov, the kind of boys you'd only see in your dreams. Both attractive, in a young, innocent way. "That's me," she confirms with a nod. "You must be Kevin."

Relieved that that hadn't gone totally tits up, he nods with a smile. "Aye, that's me. Nice to meet you, Tori raves about you." He takes a seat opposite her, clearly slightly intimidated but trying not to show it, and clears his throat. "Can I, er, can I get you a drink?"

Malia smirks, tilting her head slightly and observing him as he sits across her. "Shouldn't I be the one asking you that?" she asks, sounding amused. "But no, I'm quite alright. Would you like anything, Kevin?"

He shakes his head, an automatic response. "No, I'm good, ta." His eyes drift to the clock on the wall, the big hand slowly ticking past the six. "Damn, I thought I was late. Where the hell is Tori?"

"I'm here, I'm here," the aforementioned brunette barges into the restaurant, almost as if she'd been summoned, and ran down the narrow walkway to get to the table she'd seen her blonde friend at. Her eyes land on Malia once she's sat next to Kevin, and her apologetic look becomes cheeky, at best. "...and I'm definitely queer."

Eyebrows shooting up at Tori's blatancy, he bites back a smirk of amusement and shuffles over to give her room to sit down. Then Malia's question comes, and his mind goes a little blank - as good of an idea it is, it sounds ludicrous when said outside. "Well, um - it's your idea, really," he says eventually to Tori, shamelessly shifting the work to her.

She was going to let Kevin do all the talk, since she believes he's likely going to get flustered and become a bit of a mess at some point throughout the conversation and she wants to savor every moment of it. But then he just passes it on to her. She rolls her eyes, but nonetheless takes charge, looking back at her possible funder with a sweet smile. "Right. Umm... well, we want to make a youth hostel. But - well, for wizards," she says. "Like - just imagine it. For wizards that are other species, like werewolves and veelas, or just for wizards that aren't... accepted by their own family, let's say."

She's silent for a couple moments too long, looking from Tori to Kevin. Neither one seem to be joking. "That's a good idea," she says slowly, the dots already connecting inside her head as to why they need her help. "A very good one. What brought it on?"

"Do you both know what it entails?" she questions, quirking an eyebrow. "All the hard work that we'll have to put into it? Not to mention find someone who can handle the day to day functions while you're at Hogwarts. This isn't something you do overnight, nor is it a decision you make lightly. A youth hostel... while beneficial in many ways, will still be the closest thing to a home some people will have. It's not a responsibility a pair of fifteen, sixteen year olds should have."

"Well - we can deal with that," he says, stuttering with clear passion about this idea. He looks to Tori, eyes widening in an ask for help. "I mean, that's why we've come to you, right? It's just an idea, we haven't actually pieced anything together yet. As you said - too much responsibility." He clearly believes that he and Tori could do it by themselves, but he tries to agree with Malia to get her on side.

Kevin looks so nervous, but so passionate about this, Tori almost laughs. Almost. She leans forward, elbows on her table and her face the epitome of serious. "We know people who could use something like this. We want to make a change in this shithole of a Wizarding World, no matter how big a responsibility it is. I mean, some of the best people in our history started out as young adults who wanted to take on more responsibility than they had to. This is what we want to do. Will it be tough? Yes. But everything in life is going to be tough, so what. We'll get over it. We really want to do this. We want to help wizards and witches who face rejection and discrimination by their own families. We may not have put together much yes, but we know we'd have the support of many people in this community. We want to do this, and we want to do this badly. Even if you refuse to fund this entire thing, which would be understandable, we'll still find a way and do this. Because this? This is personal. This is what we want to do with our lives. It's your money, you don't have to hop in if you don't want to, but with your help or without your help, we will see this go through," she says, with this confidence and raging passion in her pose, her voice, her expression, that she hadn't really had before. This? This was important to her. This was what she wanted to do with her life, not necessarily just become an auror. This way? This way she and Kevin could help wizards and witches like them. They could make a change and make it count.

He feels an immense burst of pride, watching Tori leaning across the table and handing Malia's ass to her. His face is a picture of surprise, before slowly spreading into a grin. When her monologue's done, he feels like he could take on the world, but he just looks back at Malia. "And that."

She sits back, still reluctant about the whole thing but seeing how much this project meant to both of them. They were passionate about this, it wasn't a quality you saw frequently, much less in teenagers. She purses her lips. "Do you have any ideas about this? Where would it be? How would word spread out about it? Things like that."

"There's tons of abandoned buildings in London," he shrugs. "We cover it in charms to keep the Muggles away, do it up, make it livable in. As for getting word around - word-of-mouth, obviously, to begin with. It needs time to grow. I know enough kids back home who would gladly live there." His words are defiant, especially when home is mentioned.

He resists the urge to roll his eyes and continues. "Which is why I said abandoned. London's a city, it has outskirts and slums; not everything's high-tech and crammed in. There are sports stadiums with nothing for a good mile or so around, and what do stadiums have? Changing rooms, offices, ticket boxes - shelter. And entire blocks of flats with nobody in there. Hell, I'd even take an abandoned Tube station if it means I can get some kids away from shitty parents."

She taps her fingers against the table rhythmically, the gears turning inside her head. She knows it's a risk, when she's affiliated to the Order, but it's a solid idea that she does want to fund. "We can give it a shot," she says eventually. "We can head into London, check different places out and see what comes out of it."

Her eyebrows shoot up, surprise crossing her eyes. She hadn't, you know, expected her to say yes. Even with her monologue. She looks sideways, at Kevin, wondering what was running inside his mind right now. She can barely hide back her grin and refrain herself from screaming fuck yes, but she manages, because she doesn't exactly want to look like an idiot.

He's at first surprised, then underwhelmed, but then the gravity of her agreement lands and he feels more triumphant than he has in years, more than any Quidditch win. He too stifles a bizarre grin, turning to look back at Tori, eyes sparkling with happiness, before turning back to Malia. "Thank you."

"I guess when you go through as much as we have, you just... see the need to make a change. You see the faults in something and it's just difficult to not do something. Not when you're affected by it directly. People like me? We're treated like crap. People like Kevin? They don't have life easy. But if - if we can save people from having a life like ours... then we will do anything to achieve that."

"I'd have killed for somewhere else to go," he admits, and it's weird hearing both himself talk to strangers about his situation and Tori talk about it in general; never did he think he'd be talking about it so openly, even if it's not that openly at all. "I still would. And like Tori says, if we can give that to another kid who needs to get away, I'd do anything to make it possible."

She's sitting in a booth, her back pressed against the wall and feet propped up on the seat with her. She has a cup of cocoa in her hands, despite the relatively warm temperature outside. The place is swarmed with students and their respective families, but she's trying not to pay them much attention, because Tilly is going to be here soon, and they'll finally be able to talk. Without, you know, the avoiding-capture-and-probable-death part. Nor her mother. Her mother, whom she's admittedly still confused about. She can't get out of her mind her admission - the same admission that, in joint effort with her own traumas, have kept her awake for most nights. She doesn't know what to do. She's torn. She respects her mother and her own wishes, of course she does, but she's just frightened the older woman would bottle everything up and allow it to explode at a later date. She could very well go insane again. Or, you know, go ahead and insult Tessa again. It's something she also has dwelled upon since her mother said it, but she hopes it'd just been the heat of the moment and her anger had blinded her. "Oh my God, my thoughts are definitely going to be the end of me," she grumbles, closing her eyes and resting her head against the wall. My brain needs to shut up.



Annika Krämer — WB

Annika is highkey jittery because this was the first time she's been out and about in public since that last time in Hogsmeade Grounds and because she's meeting up with Tessa. The girl still jumps a bit at every sign of blond hair, but she's trying to clamp it down. She spotted Tessa as soon as she stepped into the Three Broomsticks and made her way towards her booth.

She pops an eye open when she notices a shadow. She smiles when she sees Tilly - it's a smile even her mother rarely sees, because it's soft and sweet and everything she's typically not. "Nice to see you're still alive."


Annika Krämer — WB

She grinend back at her before taking a seat. "I know, I've been having heart attacks every time I see a blond in my peripherals, it's ridiculous." As if to prove her point, she subtly flinches at a blond who just entered the premises. "Nice to see school hasn't killed your brain."

Tessa sighs, noticing the flinch. She hates it, she really does. It drives her insane that she can't do better, can't make her feel better. It'll be better, once you get rid of your drama. You can help her. "Killed my brain? Come on, I'm way stronger. Or have you forgotten?" she questions, smirking across at her.

"Hasn't been that long, has it?"


Annika Krämer — WB

She playfully rolled her eyes, "How could I forget?" Annika puts her arms on the table and rests her chin on them. "I kinda miss being at school though, but the lack of homework and all that jazz does feel pretty great."

"That's nothing that can't be deal with. What'd be wrong with giving you a new identity? Sure he might be on the look up, but if we make it believable enough..." she trails off, shrugging a little. "It'd suck having to return to school for another two years without you, you know."


Annika Krämer — WB

Annika hummed, considering it. "Redecorating the entirety of the house gets a little tedious when you do it for several days in a row though. I might be able to whip up a new identity." She commented offhandedly. "Do you have any ideas then, little miss genius?" She looked up at her, a teasing lilt in her voice and a twinkle of amusement in her eyes.

Her cheeks gain a pink tinge and she looks away, because why is Tilly looking at her like that? It makes her feel things. Quite intensely, as a matter of fact. She tries to distract herself by taking a drink from her cocoa, but it's still too hot. She winces. "I wouldn't say genius," she mumbles, pointedly avoiding her gaze. "Something lowkey, probably. Maybe a poor girl? Preferably not a local. Maybe American?"


Annika Krämer — WB

She was a little confused at the avoidance of eye contact and a little concerned at the pink tinge, was it something she said? "You okay there, Tessa? You look a little... pink." She'd shake her head, dismissing it for now. "Luckily for us, I have my American accent down pat. How to explain how a poor American girl ended up in England though..."

"I'm fine," she lies. Fingers crossed it was believable. Moving on, she contemplates a possible explanation for that question. "Your family had to give you away to friends, because they couldn't afford to have you anymore and wanted you to have the best education possible."


Annika Krämer — WB

"That's... surprisingly bittersweet. I'd have to figure out identities for the 'family friends' who took me in though." Annika drums her fingers on the table to the tune of a piece she had written.

Annika Krämer — WB

Her heart warms and butterflies fly in her stomach at the thought of being able to stay with Tessa in the near future. Digest those butterflies, Tilly Evans. "I'll try." She said, referring to the 'lowkey' part. "You're my home though, so naturally I'd go with you." Then she realised what she just said. "I— I mean England. England's my home.

Even with that nearly overwhelming odd feeling in her stomach, she finds herself smirking. Her cheeks are red, of course they are, but she ignores it, because Tilly just called her her home and that's easily one of the very few things that's made her happy all week. "You know, I can't find it in myself to believe that correction," she remarks. "Though it's nice to know you care about me, Evans."


Annika Krämer — WB

She pouted, though her cheeks looked a bit red as well. "Believe what you wanna believe, then." She'd bury her face a bit to hide her reddened cheeks. "And of course I care about you. I care about you a lot. Why wouldn't I?"

"Maybe because last time we talked, we were avoiding probable death. And then the time before that, we were around nine. A girl ought to have her doubts," Tessa smiles, because despite Tilly's attempts at hiding her red cheeks, she did see, and quite frankly thought it was the cutest sight ever. Oh my God I'm so screwed, aren't I?


Annika Krämer — WB

She was too focused on hiding her blush to notice that Tessa somehow forgot about their very brief time as firsties. "Don't doubt me, honey, I'm very honest." God she needed to change subjects before she blurts out anything embarrassing. "I'm gonna start on this new identity thing once I go back. The sooner I can finish it, the sooner I can join you at Hogwarts."

She quirks an eyebrow when she hears honey fall from Tilly's lips, out of amusement more than anything, but doesn't bother to say anything about it. She smiles when she confirms she will return to Hogwarts with her. At least that way mum won't approach her without me, and I'll be able to keep an eye on her. Make sure she's fine. "But you do know you'll have to come up with a way to slide into sixth year with me, right? Unless you're interested in a year gap."


Annika Krämer — WB

"I can catch up, I've always been an intellectual, not to brag." At this point, her cheeks have calmed down and she had stopped hiding her face, giving Tessa a playful grin. "I can make the poor American girl some sort of academic prodigy or something."

"To rival the local academic prodigy? Come on, I know you love me, but wanting to be me?" she teases, a grin on her face. "That said, we'd need to do something about your OWLs. Without those marks, they won't let you pick NEWT subjects."


Annika Krämer — WB

"I'd never. Two academic prodigies are better than one. 'Sides, I love myself enough to not want to be another person, as much as I love you." At the mention of OWLs, she groaned. "Now I remember why I didn't go to Ilvermorny during my time in the States."

"Damn, that was a hard blow," Tessa tuts and places a hand over her chest in offense, but she can't keep a straight face for long, because she's smirking at her clear disdain over OWLs. "And here I was, thinking it was because you couldn't bear enduring years of schooling without my cute ass keeping you entertained."


Annika Krämer — WB

"Oh please, I'm pretty sure it's the other way around." Her playful grin made its comeback as she said this. "I mean, you're not wrong though, I've got no one to complain with when people got too prissy."

"At least I went to school," she sticks her tongue out childishly. "You see, the thing with Americans is that they're all rude and judgmental. Even if you're right. Because they're almost always biased. Me, on the other hand..." she trails off, eyebrows knitting together. "Nope. Nevermind. Not sure where I was headed with that. I met my mum's... partner's ex a couple months ago. Nearly stabbed the guy. Guess I am judgmental and rude," she snickered. "But, okay, at least I'm willing to be judgmental with you, yeah?"


Annika Krämer — WB

"Hey, I went to Juilliard you know." She reached over to lightly poke Tessa on the nose. "Everyone's got a drop of bias in their blood, it's a human thing." At Tessa's last statement, she put her hand over heart, looking as if touched she was. "Aw, I have that privilege, I'm touched."

"I've learnt how to ignore their obnoxiousness, honey. It makes them more, ah, hissy." She'd giggle a bit. "But hey, at least I'm in your top 5. And you're not a bitch, you're a small puppy.

She rolls her eyes, huffing when Tilly pokes her nose. A smile is sliding on, and she doesn't bother to fight it off. "Okay, but I'm, like, a badass puppy. German Shepherd puppy, yes? Or a pitbull," she laughs, shaking her head. And slowly, it dies down, because something has come to her mind and it's likely not gonna stop nagging her for a while. "So, I came out to my mum the other day," she admits, her own little way of coming out to Tilly. It's pathetic, that she can't say it in any other way, but she wants Tilly to know who she is without actually saying it.


Annika Krämer — WB

"What a coincidence. I happen to love German shepherds." At the mention of coming out, Annika's expression becomes that of concern. "How'd she take it then?" She doesn't seem bothered at Tessa's silent confession, because she really wasn't.

"I'm willing to bet on Rupert's life she already knew. She seemed... proud, though? Happy. It was nice to make her proud, for once," she admits quietly. It's the truth. She's a failure, she's so sure of it, but that one time... despite all her worries... her mother had looked proud of her. "But, well, now I really don't want you talking to her. Not without me around."


Annika Krämer — WB

"I'm proud of you though. I wasn't able to come out to my parents before they went and passed on." She reached over again, but this time with her palm facing upwards as if offering a hand of comfort to Tessa. "Why though? She didn't seem that bad when we first met. Does this have something to do with you coming out to her?"

She glances at Tilly's hand warily, almost ready to see her retract it. It pains her to be saying this - an overwhelming, crushing pain that can only go away if she comes to terms with who she is. And it involves coming out. Completely. She tries to stay composed, tries to maintain a calm front, like nothing is wrong, so she takes her hand. "Would you want your mom - or, well, your sister - to be alone with the one person you came out for in the first place?" she reasons so softly, so quietly, so unsurely. She's scared shitless of rejection, something she's inherited after years of pent-up, hidden-away insecurities.


Annika Krämer — WB

It took her a moment, before everything registers and her mouth uttered a small "Oh". Instead of retracting her hand, she took Tessa's hand and laced their fingers together. "You don't have anything to be afraid of, doofus." She said just as softly, but a bright grin was on her face because holy f**king sh**.

Annika Krämer — WB

"Don't go attacking me with that sarcasm now, honey. I came here to have a good time and I honestly feel so attacked right now." She teased. "And yeah, if you wanna."

Tessa rolls her eyes again, but she's smiling, so it can't really be wholehearted. Tilly was an absolute dork. Her dorky best friend. Or... well, her dorky something. She wonders briefly if it's going to be something defined, whatever they have, or if it's going to not. But she doesn't dwell on those thoughts, because she has more pressing matters to tend to, clearly. Tess hesitates, because she's still new to everything, but in the end leans in to kiss the girl who she has been madly in love with for months now.


Annika Krämer — WB

She smiles into the kiss, ignoring the possibility of the other patrons of the establishment staring at them because holy f**king sh** I'm kissing the girl I've been pining for years what did I do to deserve this miracle. When they broke away, her grin was threatening to split her face in half. "So... does this mean we're official?"

She's oh so incredibly nervous, but also giddy. How such an odd mix works out so well, she doesn't know. But she hates it, because her heart is hammering hard against her chest and she has very, very intense butterflies going on in her stomach. Even if her mind is empty. Empty because she's just had her first proper kiss. With Tilly Evans, no less. Her cheeks are a vibrant red when she comes to her senses a couple seconds later and she finds herself sitting back, with a satisfied smirk on her lips. "Considering how irritating I know not being defined is, I'm gonna go with yes," she smiles dopily. "Plus you're cute, and you aren't a bad kisser. So I may as well keep you around," she adds teasingly.


Annika Krämer — WB

"As if I'm going anywhere else, you doof, willingly or forcibly." Then she goes back to her previous position, arms on the table and her head in her arms. "Oh my God this is so overwhelming.

Her eyebrows lift when Tilly mentions potential guardians. She conceals it perfectly, but a part of her feels odd knots in her stomach. She was close to other people over there. "Finding them shouldn't be that hard, provided you know them well."

She was rather nervous, but the conversation down from the tower and into Hogsmeade had been fairly easy. Once they arrived inside the pub, she glanced around looking for a free table and pointed to a few empty ones in back. "We could sit over there?"

Leo preferred sitting in the back of any restaurant, so it was reassuring that the booths closer to the back wall were open. It wasn't necessarily a necessity, but the preference was there. "Yeah, that sounds good," he said, leading them both over there with a slight limp. "Do you know what you're going to get already?" he asked as he slid into his side opposite of her.
