But Sylvia isn't here

“I don’t think so,” Kir replied, when Nathaniel said that his cousin planned to ‘sort this out.’ He tried to not immediately jump to the conclusion that said cousin was a spoilt little brat. He supposed being separated from one’s family was not necessarily a particularly nice thing to have to go through. However, the idea of a first year somehow over-ruling the sorting potion’s decision - thinking that they could do that… “I’ve never heard of anyone being moved,” he added, not wanting to give the boy false hope. That was if he wanted to move. His cousin wanted him to, but Kir rather liked the impartiality of the sorting potion. It didn’t care what your cousin or your mum or dad wanted. He didn’t even think it particularly took note of what you wanted. It took note of who you were. It might take him some time, but he hoped Nathaniel would find what suited him about his house, and be happy there.

“It probably won’t make too much difference though. I mean, you only have to sit with your house for special occasions, like the feasts. So, you can still take all your other meals with your cousin, and you’ll be in classes together,” hoping to comfort him if he was worried about being apart from his family. That was a natural and understable reaction.

“You’re Simon’s… relative too then?” he added, as the surname filtered through. He was so used to not caring who was who, but it was hard not to know everyone’s names in a school this small. “I’m in the same year as him,” he added, feeling that this being the most obvious way to describe their relationship spoke volumes about the extent to which it did not exist. He wasn’t sure Simon Mordue knew more about him than his name, and was pretty sure he’d detest anything more he did know.

        I don’t think so . Nathaniel’s eyes widened a little, as though he could not quite believe what he was hearing. Of course he could – Sylvia usually got what she wanted, but not always, nobody always... more
        • Ouch. What kind of family raised kids to believe that one of them was more important than the rest? Well, mental Pureblood ones, obviously, which was part of the reason why his family’s foundation... more

              “Well, true,” he acknowledged, when Nathaniel pointed out that there were some people who were more important, like prefects. “I guess some people get given an important job to do, and then that... more
