Evelyn Stones, Pecari
I am so sorry about that.
Mon Sep 3, 2018 02:28

Evelyn sort of wanted to laugh, never having heard of the Astleys or the Something French Soundings of France. She also sort of felt bad for the boy who was clearly so desperate to prove that his family was important that he didn't seem sure how to actually just be important. She wasn't sure if it was in his favor or not that he seemed willing to accept her when he introduction made her worthy, regardless of the oddities of her appearance and behavior that he'd witnessed before. She wasn't sure if it made him open-minded or status-hungry.

"I love desserts," Evelyn admitted, surprised they had something in common. She was a bit uncomfortable with his suggestion they make something based on the low potion and wasn't sure if he was trying to mimic some weird form of flirting he'd seen his parents use or something, but it seemed more likely after a moment that he was just... a really eager baker. She wondered what his proud Pureblood father would think, and smiled at the thought of encouraging a defiant streak in her classmate.

"Amortentia sounds good," Evelyn agreed. "And since it has to be something we can make in a cauldron, essentially one big pot, what about something like rice krispie treats that don't have to be baked? That's only like three ingredients, too, plus the pearl dust which would be really beautiful." Deciding that she should probably contribute something more than 'pearl dust is pretty,' she thought about some other ingredients. "What about powdered common rue? I think it's in healing potions and liquid luck. Might go with the pearl dust and stuff well?"

Evelyn let Julius take the lead from there, more interested in what working with him would be like than on what they were actually making, although she was curious about that, too.

"Do you cook at home?" she asked.

      • I don't understand why?Julius Astley, Crotalus, Mon Sep 3 10:25
        Julius was forced to admit that the girl didn't appear to be as silly and unintelligent as her ridiculous costume jewellery and lipstick colours might have suggested. In fact, she appeared to be... more
        • You deserve lots of friends!Evelyn Stones, Mon Sep 3 21:07
          "That's okay!" Evelyn said, bcaktracking. She supposed Julius was probably either highly sheltered from confections, or his family was simply above the gooey treat. "It's krispie cereal and... more
          • You seem to be the only person who thinks so. Julius Astley, Crotalus, Mon Sep 3 22:44
            Julius was very confused by the entire situation that he found himself in. When he had first seen Evelyn as orientation, he'd dismissed her presence, considering her to be beneath him. Yet, in the... more
            • Well, today is a new day, my friend.Evelyn Stones, Tue Sep 4 02:36
              Evelyn nodded, understanding as Julius spoke of his father's expectations. While she certainly held no claims to any fortune or title, she was well aware of the pressures of an unreasonable and... more

                Julius couldn't keep the confusion from his face as Evelyn leaned in, telling him that cooking was okay and something about a midnight snack. Such a concept was as foreign to Julius as her rice... more
                • Fair point, that.Evelyn Stones, Tue Sep 4 19:39
                  Evelyn wasn't sure if Julius was confused or if she was. He had a look on his face that made Evelyn confident either she'd said something stupid, or Julius' life experience was so radically different ... more
                  • It was well made, wasn't it?Julius Astley, Crotalus, Tue Sep 4 20:26
                    Somehow, the words 'big gooey bar thing' didn't fill Julius with much confidence in that their dessert would actually be any good. However, Evelyn seemed to know what she was talking about and given... more
                    • I'll give you half credit.Evelyn Stones, Wed Sep 5 02:22
                      Evelyn's eyes flicked towards Julius when he said he would recall any information they needed. At first, she was prepared to laugh. Then she realized he was serious. She wasn't sure what exactly was... more
