“Indeed. I am quite glad that they’re back to being your responsibility,” he nodded, when Grayson mentioned the possibility of explosions in the library. “I do hope anyone who was feeling… that way inclined would take themselves off somewhere else and not recklessly endanger innocent books though,” he frowned. He certainly had done, although his own exploding had been of a far less literal nature. He hoped most of the people who were inclined to use the library were conscientious enough to think of that, or to just be gentle enough people that their accidents didn’t take the form of explosions.

And I certainly haven’t read every piece of decent literature, poetry and philosophy in the library yet. There’s probably some quite interesting theory, enough to challenge the brightest students means it goes above RATS level occasionally, and it’s not like I took seventh year exams in every subject, though I do tend to stick more to the arts.

“What’s your preferred reading material? And did you say writing?” he added curiously. Possibly Grayson just meant writing to family, but people usually put ‘to family’ on the end of that verb to make it clear they meant that as opposed to actual… writerly writing.
