For once, you're in the clear

Honestly, there were probably worse people to have appeared at Rose’s elbow than Emmett Lawrence. Although she found him annoying and kind of puppy-pathetic at times, she was actually kind of fond of him. He had also definitely moved up a step in Rose’s personal ranking of humans at school once she’d found out that he actually punched out Lucien in response to the older Draco’s disrespect of Holland. It wasn’t surprising that Emmett had reacted strongly to the offense, but Rose absolutely had not expected him to get physical with that. She had actually gotten a little bit physical herself, ambushing Lucien in an empty corridor and hexing him, but honestly that was something Rose would expect people to expect from her. Her temper was pretty common knowledge, as was her loyalty to her friends. Sometimes Rose wondered why she’d been put in Aquila instead of Draco, but she didn’t wonder too hard. After all, she’d gotten a best friend and perfect roommate out of it.

“Nope, no plans,” she responded to Emmett, selecting a cheese cube herself and popping it in her mouth. Rose made a face. It was a very sharp cheese, of which she was not a particular fan. Swallowing quickly, she retrieved another chocolate to mask the taste in her mouth. Much better.

“So,” Rose said, drawing the word out. What was she supposed to talk to Emmett about, aside from his awkward break-up with Marissa? “Nice job with Lucien,” was the comment she went with, figuring it was safe mutual territory. “How much trouble did you get in?” Since Emmett had gotten Lucien square in the face and Lucien was sporting the bruise to prove it, Rose assumed that one or both of the boys had ended up in Garen Tennant’s office. It wasn’t a place she’d spent a whole lot of time - Rose largely limited her revenge to anonymous pranks or quiet, under-the-table jinxes that left little proof of who had cast them - but she figured it couldn’t be too bad. Garen was Marissa’s kind-of-grandpa and seemed pretty nice, although he probably couldn’t be too nice about any actual fights.

  • I hope it's not me! - Emmett Lawrence, Tue Mar 14 20:32
    When Emmett was picking out his outfit, he had not intended to look like Holland’s semi-matching prom date. Unfortunately, as he beheld their sparkly golden appearance, he glanced down at himself and ... more
    • For once, you're in the clear - Rose, Wed Mar 15 09:36
      • *Loud sigh of relief* - Emmett, Fri Mar 17 20:10
        Hm. Rose didn’t seem as fond of the cheese as he was. If he were any more dramatic an individual (if that was possible) he might have considered it a bad omen for a delectable little cute to inspire... more
        • Don't get too comfortable there - Rose, Sun Mar 19 11:43
          “Not too bad,” Rose acknowledged at Emmett’s punishment. Two weeks of detention wasn’t terrible at all, and twenty house points was nothing. Rose admittedly had never ended up with more than a week... more
          • When have I ever been "too" comfortable? - Emmett, Mon Mar 20 02:55
            “Oh my god!” Emmett laughed. “That’s hilarious.” He could just imagine Lucien with his legs immobilized and little birds bumping their pointy little beaks into the side of his head. It was probably... more
            • Let's shake things up, just in case - Rose, Fri Mar 24 04:48
              “Marissa’s pretty good, it’s all about teambuilding right now since we’re losing Justin Alderman after this year, at least,” Rose said. “And since we don’t have reserves we’ll probably have some... more
              • Shaken, not stirred? - Emmett, Fri Mar 24 23:09
                Emmett hadn’t predicted Rose’s response. Admittedly, she was pretty unpredictable in general, at least to him, but he was just trying to not think so hard, and he hadn’t stopped to expect anything.... more
                • Bond, James Bond. - Rose, Sun Mar 26 09:45
                  It was a little surprising that Emmett was still down to dance even though the mood of the songs had changed drastically. Emmett was an awkward little puppy and definitely wasn’t the smartest... more
                  • I guess that makes me the Bond girl - Emmett, Wed Mar 29 16:16
                    “Let’s do it!” She grabbed his hands and put them where she wanted them, and Emmett swallowed nervously, fighting off the rising heat in his cheeks. Well, this was certainly not how he had expected... more
                    • The role suits you - Rose, Thu Mar 30 09:16
                      Rose burst out laughing as Emmett thanked her for thanking him for the dance. Honestly, from his poleaxed look, Rose was a little surprised that he managed words at all. The fifth year hadn’t... more
                      • Well, if the mini skirt fits... - Emmett, Fri Apr 7 23:16
                        Wh… what? Wait, okay, so rewind. What had even just happened? Emmett and Rose danced, then she kissed him - Rose Farnon kissed him, Emmett Lawrence - and then he stood there like an idiot, as often... more
                        • Now there's something I'd like to see - Rose, Wed Apr 12 05:40
                          Although Emmett began answering her question like a normal person, he - completely out of nowhere - started babbling about how she had kissed him. Rose blinked hazel eyes at the fourth year, a little ... more
