Gabriel Errant
I'd like to get in on that.

Gabriel paused as he realized that it wasn't a person he was talking to - at least, not the ones he was used to conversing with. There had once been a ghoul in his house but his father had driven it off, and at the orphanage there had been plenty of ghosts but it had been awhile since Gabriel had conversed with one. He knew Renée hated them. Ghosts reminded her of death; a subject she both loathed and was obsessed with. Even when she was younger she would talk about it excessively. It could be quite a downer.

For Gabriel himself, the thought of ghosts comforted him. He was planning on being one himself, as the thought of an eternity of unconsciousness didn't quite appeal to him.

"Yeah, I play chaser." Gabriel leaned back slightly on his broom. Now that he looked the ghost over a bit more, he noticed he wasn't quite as transparent as he expected. Poltergeist, maybe?

The ghost-thing asked he wanted to have a friendly game of catch the snitch. Gabriel smiled slightly surprised. "Yeah, sure. I... I didn't know people like you could touch stuff." He wasn't sure people was the correct term, but whatever. He was about to ask the ghost-thing what its classification was exactly, but decided he didn't really care. Today was about satisfying his need for flying.

"Okay, three seconds then we go off." He stretched out his hand and the snitch, perhaps sensing its impending release, stilled its wings. Gabriel spread his fingers. The snitch bobbed slightly against his palm, then shot off.

One... Two... Three.

"Try to keep up!" Gabriel laughed as he leaned forward and shot after the golden ball, his eyes searching for that elusive golden glint.

    Drifting through the wall of the Quidditch shed, Laeche poked his head through a particular tile in the ceiling and grinned. It was just as he had left it. He quickly grasped the corner of the tile... more

      • On the scheming or the Snitching?Laeche, Sat Nov 13 15:29
        Laeche grinned. "Yes, well, when you're as old as I am you tend to learn a trick or two," he told the boy with a wink. "I'm sort of a freak among my own kind." He bobbed closer and poked him. "See?... more
        • Definitely the scheming.Gabriel Errant, Sat Nov 13 22:46
          Gabriel grinned below him when the ghost-thing appeared just below his broom. "How can you get older? You're dead. I just meant 'keep up' because I'm just so darn amazing." He flashed him a wider... more
          • As the "darn amazing" boy followed him towards the Snitch, Laeche increased his speed but restrained himself from flying too fast. If he won, the boy might demand a rematch, which he really didn't... more
            • I'd rather be the mischief maker.Gabriel Errant, Wed Nov 17 17:56
              Gabriel laughed, as if the thought of him dying so soon, so young, was preposterous. In many ways, though he was now twenty, he was very childlike. He still thought that, no matter what he did, he... more

                Laeche rolled his eyes, amused. Eternally handsome? Oh, the poor child. He clearly hadn't thought far enough ahead to figure out that the mortal girls wouldn't be satisfied for long with just looking ... more

                  Momentarily confused as to where the ghost-thing had gotten at, Gabriel cried out in surprise as his hand opened of its own accord, and a streak of silvery white emerged from his briefly chilled... more
                  • I'm actually quite capable of friendly.Laeche, Tue Nov 23 21:44
                    Laeche blinked as the boy exploded at him. He didn't say anything during his outburst, figuring that it would probably only wind him up more. Though he was rather used to this kind of treatment, both ... more
                    • That's nice. Try showing it.Gabriel Errant, Sun Nov 28 23:01
                      Gabriel caught the golden ball and clenched it tightly, his knuckles white compared to the rich tan of his skin. He let the words of the ghost thing wash over him, his posture tense as if bracing... more
