Tabitha Hawthorne
We can get this cleared up.

Tabitha nodded in agreement with Mary's suggestion as to how to start sorting through all the stuff that was surrounding them. Deciding that she was better kneeling, she got down to her feet and reached for a box, pulling it closer to her to look through the contents. It appeared to be full of carefully wrapped vials of potions and ingredients and all sorts of different things that Tabitha only had a basic knowledge about. In the same box were the empty wooden racks, clearly indicating that that's where the vials were meant to be stored so Tabitha busied herself with organising them, first by the actual potions and their colour, then following with ingredients.

"I was wondering if you could help me with something," she began, as she screwed up some wrapping. She remembered from their time in the gardens that Mary had mentioned something about being in a relationship with a Veela. If there was any time that that experience would be most useful, it was now. "I remember you saying something about having been in a relationship with a Veela... Michelle, was it? I've got a decent enough lesson plan ready but any advice or information you could offer would be a big help."

She smiled to herself as she realised that she'd sorted the colours of Mary's potions into a rainbow. They actually looked very pretty, swirling in their vials, some even glowing slightly. Then, a funny thought occurred to her that made her laugh. "Hey, do you have any Felix Felicis? I could do with a dose."

      • Between my mess and yours, it may take some time.Mary Brooding, Sun Aug 5 18:57
        Mary laughed, surprised by Tabitha's question. It was, of course, a tender subject, made all the more so by her own foundling relationship with Tabitha. She still wasn't exactly sure what it entailed ... more

          The corner of Tabitha's mouth twitched upwards. She didn't say anything and perhaps it was just her ego taking over for a moment but there was something in Mary's voice that made the Defence... more
          • Yes, friend, TIME.Mary Brooding, Sun Aug 5 19:44
            Mary accepted the glass of wine and stared after Tabitha for a moment, surprised by her boldness. She wasn't totally sure how she felt about it, but feelings were definitely being felt. Lots of them. ... more

              Tabitha smiled as she listened to Mary's answer. It was so very Mary, her doing something simply to help somebody else, in this case her brother. It was sweet and kind and Tabitha was starting to... more

                As often does when getting help doing something, a decision moment came up for Mary as she watched Tabitha shelve her books. She thought to say, 'Dear friend, please sort them by author.' She also... more

                  Tabitha finished shelving the books from the box and turned back round, taking a moment to sip at her wine. She had to admit that it was a very nice pick on Mary's part. It was very smooth on the... more

                    Nodding empathetically was easy enough. Mary certainly didn't envy Tabitha on having to teach a lesson on veelas, and it made her skin crawl a bit to think of how textbooks talked about them at all.... more
