Uh, I think I deserve full credit, actually.

Julius reached for a jar of pearl dust that shined when it hit the light. He didn't know much about jewellery but he knew that his mother owned several pearl necklaces and they were all very pretty. He considered how they would use it on their rice krispie cakes and thought that it was look nice as a decoration, dusted lightly over the top of their creations. He'd suggest it to Evelyn in a bit when it came to discussing how they were going to use each of their ingredients.

He was interested to find out that she enjoyed history like he did. Not even his sisters had been interested in the things he'd learned in books so to find someone else who didn't call him a dullard was... well, rather nice. Though, he had next to no interest in Quidditch. He didn't say that though and simply nodded as she talked.

"They were French words," he told her, reaching for some powdered moonstone. It was an ingredient used in Veritaserum and he wondered if it was possible, as an alternative to the potion, if one could create a food that forced the eater to tell the truth. It was definitely something that he thought was worth exploring. "And the religieuse is delicious," he confirmed again, the tone of voice indicating that there was absolutely no doubt in his mind about that.

"My family is not religious," he told her and then, Evelyn made a joke and Julius was momentarily confused. Then, understanding dawned on his face and he found that her pun was quite funny. He didn't laugh, as it had been drilled into him that raucous laughter was unbecoming so he simply allowed the corners of his lips to twitch upwards in a slight smile. "Though I believe my father knows a bishop. I've never met him and I believe he said that he found the man to be rather dreary and dull. I, on the other hand, would've liked to inquire about his church. Churches have fascinating histories."

    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

      • You're so odd though.Evelyn Stones, Fri Sep 7 16:54
        Evelyn blinked. Why was this boy, presumably eleven or twelve, so strange and reserved? Either he was trying very hard to be polite and feign amusement at her lame joke or he actually thought it was... more
        • You're not exactly normal yourself.Julius Astley, Crotalus, Sat Sep 15 11:30
          Julius blinked, surprised at the deep intensity of Evelyn's latest comment. There were very few people - read: no one - that Julius had met that viewed their existance in such a manner. The only... more
          • Perfect! Let's be friends, then!Evelyn Stones, Sat Sep 15 19:06
            Evelyn watched Julius as he spoke, well aware that he didn't seem to be watching her. Or even noticing that she still existed in close proximity. Maybe at all. He had a funny way of speaking, with no ... more
