Oo-err, that's getting a little too racy for my taste

Oh dear, this really was entering into small talk territory. Part of Victor felt that telling McLeod about his hobbies could be akin to selling your soul to the devil, but then again what harm could it do? He didn't have to tell McLeod his secrets or anything, not that Victor really thought he had many secrets. Apart from the fact that he actually quite liked Jehan's hugs, of course, although he was sure Jehan knew that, so it wasn't really a secret. He couldn't have his peers finding out about that one, though.

"Erm, I'm quite into broomstick racing," he offered, aiming for a neutral tone of voice. He didn't want to be too friendly and encouraging, of course, but it would be hypocritical to answer the question but sound like a jerk. "I don't play much Quidditch, though, that's just boring in comparison. What...what about you?"

Dislike of McLeod was fighting with ingrained politeness there, and sadly Victor conceeded that politeness had to win. He couldn't consider himself better than McLeod if he, well, wasn't.

  • Not an anti-fun monster. Hm. So, you won't have any objections to finding your brother making out with boys then? Probably a bit blunt. And he had no desire whatsoever to out Jehan. I don't have any... more

          McLeod's gaming group sounded...well Victor didn't actually know anything about it, but it was probably pretty boring. Besides, they were all a bit old for games now, weren't they? He was also... more

            • Well. There it was. McLeod's family's charity was some attempt to undermine pureblood values and to split up families. "I think you'll find that most families just want what's best for their... more

                • "Well of course no one should be hurt or threatened!" This was just getting insulting, now. Did McLeod really think Victor would be on-board with all of that? "But that doesn't mean people should... more
                  • No one should be harmed or threatened. Good. That was reassuring. Rational human decency, one point. But being yourself bad, random spurious comparison to something that wasn't relevant... Score one... more
