Malikhi Hill, Pecari
Everybody thinks differently.

Malikhi couldn't help but smile as Evelyn rattled through her thoughts and explanations. Somehow, it was just so Evelyn. She was somehow seeing beyond just the button and delved deeper, into the similarities and differences that weren't immediately obvious. It was fascinating and clever and, as a side note to himself, he thought her blush was rather cute. He grinned at her, hoping that it would reassure her.

"I think that's really good," he told her, seeing that she was doubting her. "Everybody's perspective is different and that's not a bad thing."

Deciding that it was his turn, he picked up his parchment and, in a bid to make her laugh, he overdramatically cleared his throat, as if to make a speech. With a wide grin, he began to relay his thoughts.

"Well, I'm hoping my button will be small and hard, like my pebble and, to make things easier, a light blue. I like the colour blue so I don't want to change it and that seems like too much effort. Like my buttons here on my shirt, I'm going to be aiming for two holes and, as I'll be trying for a similar shaped button, a triangle," he paused then, his eyes flicking up from his paper to look at Ness. He wasn't fond of her yet and didn't view her as a friend the same way he did Evelyn but she did help him, so he supposed it would be okay to give her a small smile. "And given that the button will be small and triangular, only two holes would reasonably fit on there."

He put his parchment back down and swept a hand through his hair, pushing it back from his face. This, as usual, served absolutely no purpose as it flopped back over his forehead and his eyes and a few strands were now randomly sticking up. His eyes flickered up to the two girls and he smiled, pleased with the work he'd done. Transfiguration seemed like a hard subject and the fact that he'd been able to come up with something - with the help of his own shirt - made him very happy indeed.

"Shall we give the spell a go?"

  • I've done it all wrong!Evelyn Stones, Sun Aug 12 01:38
    Upon hearing Ness' thoughts on their task, Evelyn was convinced she'd done it all wrong. She really did care about her relationship with these two, though, so there was no room for lying about it. "I ... more

        “Different strokes for different folks,” Ness agreed with a cheery smile at Malikhi, “Unless the person’s “perspective” involves denying other people their basic human rights. Then it’s not really a... more

          Evelyn breathed a sigh of relief and managed to stay relaxed as Ness spoke. Seeing Ness and Malikhi get along fairly well and each be friendly to the other made Evelyn's heart swell, and Ness'... more
          • Uh, Professor? It's a bit wet over here (tag Prof. Skies)Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Tue Aug 14 22:52
            Malikhi had been eagerly awaiting his turn to try the spell, so much so that he'd hardly paid attention to Evelyn's casting until it was too late. He just caught a glimpse of her pebble changing... more
            • Right... It's wet, not hilariousNess McLeod, DH Skies, Sat Aug 18 06:32
              Ness did not think the lesson was going quite so well any more. It had been a lot better when they were all just writing things down because that part was easy. The theory made complete sense... more
              • It's awful!Evelyn Stones, Sat Aug 18 14:49
                In that moment, Evelyn might have died. She wished she could, although she wasn't sure that sounded much better. Maybe she just wished to vanish into a poof of smoke that everyone thought was totally ... more
                • I was just... forget it. Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Sat Aug 18 15:24
                  Malikhi was torn between being embarrassed because of being told off by Professor Skies, angry at Ness because he hadn't been speaking to her nor asked for her stupid stuck-up opinions and Evelyn... more

                    Poor Evelyn. Ness would have hated to have messed up a spell and have everyone looking, or have needed the teacher to come over to deal with the situation. But it was Malakhi that Ness really blamed... more

                      Evelyn wondered whether it would be exactly as nice as she thought it sounded to just put her head on the desk and disappear. Perhaps her next bout of accidental magic would be to disapparate,... more
