Howl and Flora Saltzman
Just chillin' in the Courts.
Fri Nov 12, 2010 2:36pm

On a whim, Howl decided to change his hair colour. He was fed up with being known as the pushover with green hair who went out with Kim Baden for a while. And anyway, what was the point in having weird coloured hair if he wasn't going to change it every now and then? Even green got old one day. The new colour was blue, and it looked cool. In Howl's opinion anyway.

So far, Slate seemed to have kept his promise. Not that Howl had ever doubted him, but somehow stuff always seemed to get out around Pitts'. He was grateful towards Slate anyway; he hadn't seen Kim for a while now, and he kept telling himself that he couldn't be bothered with her anyway, and he didn't want some stupid rumour reminding him of her everywhere he went.

Someone sat down next to him, and out of the corner of his eye he recognised Flora. "Hi," he murmured, pulling his glasses out of his sister's grasp and sliding them up his nose, starting to write a letter home to his family.
"Is your hair a different colour?" Flora asked, wrinkling her nose up. Why couldn't he just be slightly more normal for a change? It was fun and everything, having a brother who wasn't scared of being different, but she'd heard stuff about him and that girl, and the hair probably didn't help.

"Mmm..." Howl decided not to respond to her slightly disapproving tone. Flora looked up and watched as someone came and sat down opposite them.

      "Is your hair a different colour?" Evelyn looked up from her book as she slipped into a seat (a history of the world's greatest potioneers, lent to her by Callum, which had actually turned out to be... more

        Why was his hair blue? Howl looked up, hearing Evelyn's voice, and tilted his head to the side a little, considering his answer. "Because green was getting old?" he asked. "I wanted a change." He... more
        • Actually they call me the Drifter... Evelyn, Fri Nov 12 6:21pm
          Evelyn shrugged at Howl's rather insufficient answer, but she felt she might have been a bit tactless. On the other hand, her eyes did hurt quite a lot. Blinking them once more she shrugged again and ... more

            "Hi, Flora!" Reece smiled and sat down next to a girl with red hair, across from Flora. He'd met her at the opening feast and then Quidditch lessons, and as probably the only boy in his year who... more

              Howl took a look at Evelyn, who seemed to have something in her eye. "Maybe when I've washed it a few times..." he sighed, folding the paper up and shoving it in his pocket. This seemed to be making... more

                Evelyn nodded and smiled as Flora gabbled about her baby sister. Evelyn had learned from Howl the previous year that their mum was expecting a baby, and Evelyn had been meaning to ask Howl about the... more

                  "Oh," Reece nodded, trying not to look too happy about Howl's breakup. "Cool." Frowning at the plate, he said, "Can I get some pizza with loads of black olives and mushrooms and pepperoni?" Then,... more

                    "I know," Flora replied, "I didn't sleep much over the summer." not that she did usually, anyway, but that wasn't the point. No one had this time. "Do you have a baby brother or sister, then?" she... more
