He was finishing up dishes after eating dinner.

She'd be sitting on the couch reading through one of the werewolf propaganda leaflets that had been going around with a frown on her face.

He came into the living room and dropped down next to her, furrowing his brow. "Why are you reading that?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management

She'd shrug. "It was stuck in our door when I got home." She'd pause. "So...what do you think of all this going on?"

"I'm surprised it hasn't blown over already. I expected the Aurors to get the guy within a week, and for everything to return to normal. The stuff these groups are putting out is bullsh*t."



Elle Bagman TB

She'd nod slowly. "Sure...but it seems like they have an awful lot of resources to be doing something like this...and to still not have been caught." She'd pause. "Did you see in the profit where the Auror Head stepped down?"

He nodded. "I'm surprised it was her choice... or maybe they're just making it seem like her choice and she actually got canned?"

OOC: Daily Prophet.... not Profit, Bond. :P

She'd shrug. "I don't know. I worked under Renee and she doesn't seem like one who would cave to that sort of pressure...but who really knows?" She'd pause. "The whole things just feels off."


AdultThomas2

 – 19:07, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

"I mean... she hadn't caught the guy. Maybe the Minister wanted someone more... competent?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management

That's not what she'd meant...but she responded anyway. "Yeah...but I mean it's really easy to hide with magic and if they hadn't found him for this long it means they didn't have much to go on. How can you catch someone if you don't know who they are and they haven't done anything since?" She'd pause. "...but that's not what I meant. I meant the whole...environment feels off."

"Off... how?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:18, May 31, 2017 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "I guess maybe...people are just scared? Our games have had less of a crowd...Diagon Alley seems less populated...I don't know. Maybe I'm just reading too much into it, but I guess it sort of feels like something...bigger...something bad is coming." She'd frown, knowing she wasn't explaining very well.

 – 19:20, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

"I... think you might be reading too much into it," he said carefully. "It is winter... give it til spring, I bet numbers pick up and everything will be fine."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:28, May 31, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly...but still felt uneasy. "So...you think it'll all just...blow over? With the werewolf threat as this put it." She'd wave the paper. "...and all the rest?"

 – 19:35, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

"Even if they were to try something again... we aren't at risk, Elle," he said, frowning.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 19:43, May 31, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Right...not if they only want to attack half-breeds...but I mean...just sitting back and letting them do it doesn't seem right."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 19:58, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

He shrugged. "What can we really do? It's not like we work at the Ministry... that would be their job to do. And right now... I think they're working on it."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management

She'd sit silently for a few moments, then not looking at him answer in a quiet voice. "I...could rejoin the aurors."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:02, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

He nodded slowly. "You could... it would mean giving up Quidditch, though."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:19, May 31, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod, her voice still slow. "Yeah...I know." She'd look at him. "How would you feel about that?"


AdultThomas2

-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:29, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

"I know you have a desire to... save the world, for lack of a better term," he said with a gentle smile. "But I also think you jump in with both feet... sometimes a bit prematurely. Why not wait until... you know for certain that it's not going to just blow over?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:31, May 31, 2017 (UTC)
She'd consider that. Realistically if she waited, there was no way she'd actually be able to help the aurors since getting retrained and integrated would take time. She'd smile, her voice teasing. "I thought you were the courageous lion, not me."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 20:45, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

"You're also my wife," he said slowly. "And... I'd hate to see you give up Quidditch... and for all this to be over so soon."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 20:51, May 31, 2017 (UTC)
He'd bring her serious mood back. "I'm also not getting any younger...and I can't play quidditch forever."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 21:37, May 31, 2017 (UTC)

"Are you wanting to give that up?"



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 12:19, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd frown. "I mean...I'd really like another shot at the World Cup but...if this needs to happen..." She'd let out a slightly frustrated sigh. "I don't know."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 14:01, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

He rubbed her back gently. "It doesn't need to be decided this minute, Elle."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 15:12, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod, arching her back a little as he rubbed. "Yeah, I know. I guess I just don't like feeling idle or...stagnant."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 15:47, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

He grinned slightly. "I've noticed."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 15:50, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd give a slightly abashed smile. "Sorry...I didn't mean to imply our marriage or being with you wasn't...that it's stale or anything..."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 15:52, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

He chuckled. "I didn't take it that way. I was thinking about how you wanted an eight-week engagement, though," he said, his eyes twinkling with good humor.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 17:07, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd gently punch him in the arm. "Hey...it was doable."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 17:09, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

He nodded, knowing better than to push it. "I still think we had a lovely wedding, just the way it was."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 17:15, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd nod and smile. "Yeah...it was."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 17:18, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

He glanced up at the wall, where there was a picture from their wedding day hung, with the two of them smiling, and then embracing, the wind gently playing with the ends of Elle's hair, and skirts. "You were radiant," he said, before flicking his eyes back to her. He tucked a stray hair behind her ear. "Always are."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 17:22, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd smile happily. "...and you were pretty handsome yourself."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 17:24, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

He smiled. "I love you, Elle."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 17:28, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd smile back. "I love you too." She'd pause, her tone partially joking. "So...how do you feel about kids...?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 17:31, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

He could hear her tone... but he did want to be a Dad at some point. "I'd be ready whenever you are," he said, trying to sound casual, so as not to freak her out too much, since he knew she wanted to wait.



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 17:33, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd frown slightly. "I mean...you'd be ready if I said I was now...? Or...if I wanted to wait ten years? I know you're patient Thomas...but you have some idea on how you want this to work out."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 17:34, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

"I wouldn't want to wait ten years, no," he said slowly. "But... I'm ready anytime you are, Elle. Whether that's now... or a year or... five."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 17:37, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd give him a look. "You're being frustratingly unhelpful."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 17:39, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

He shrugged. "I mean... it's ultimately your body, Elle. And you're the one with careers that would be most effected by a pregnancy: Auror or Quidditch player."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 17:42, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd frown, her voice slightly heated. "...but it's our child Thomas. I want you to have some say in this too...or would you rather I just make up my own mind and inform you when we're going to have the baby?"


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 17:44, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

"I mean... that's kind of how it works, right? I mean, I'd prefer to know we're trying... but I'm ready now... but it's fine if you aren't. I can wait."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 17:48, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "No...that's not how it works Thomas. That's not how it should work anyway. This is a partnership...you and I. You have as much say in the decisions that affect me as I do...and you'll be a dad. That means you don't get to step back and let me do everything...I'll be counting on you to be just as big a part as I am." She'd was clearly frustrated.


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 17:51, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Elle, honey," he said gently. "I've told you... I'm ready. And I will stay ready until you decide that you're ready. That's not something I can decide for you. And I don't want you to.... compromise on when you are, because that wouldn't be fair to you." He frowned slightly. "And... I'm not sure where you get the notion that I'd step back and watch you parent. I'm fully aware that's not how that works. I want to be a parent."



Elle Bagman TB
Elle Bagman - Domestic Management
Send Me an Owl! - 17:54, June 1, 2017 (UTC)
She'd calm down a little. "Your attitude Thomas. That you said you think that's just...how it works that I decide these sort of things for us. That sometimes your opinions on things seem so...laid back that I can't help but wonder if you even care."


AdultThomas2

Thomas Bagman Owner/Potioneer at The Apothecary
-"Think for yourself and question authority."

 – 18:09, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

"Elle... I believe I stated in there several times that I want children. However, biologically speaking, I do not get to decide when you get pregnant. Obviously I care... but as the man... I get very little say in when it happens. I can say I'm ready... and then you tell me when you're ready to start trying. But I can't decide for you when you're ready... mentally, and I can't decide when it's going to happen physically." He let out a breath. "But believe me. I want to be a parent, and I look forward to it. So I'm not going to sit back on that... I promise."
