Dardanius Dubois
Let’s escalate this, shall we?
Sat May 5, 2018 09:57

Dardanius was irritable. Not long ago, Claudia had told him about being attacked in the corridor by Dade Farnon. While he wasn’t on the best terms with Claudia currently, he was still responsible for her in their parents’ absence, and he was furious that any student believed it acceptable to cast offensive, potentially life-threatening magic on her without the slightest hint of provocation.

Furthermore, when Danny and Holland had briefly discussed the situation, Holland had not given him the impression that they shared his disgust. He acknowledged that Holland had good reason to dislike Claudia, but even so they were not usually ambivalent when a person had been assaulted, not least when the victim was unarmed and doing nothing more objectionable than walking to her commons. They had broken up with Ruben because of his violent tendencies, but made no effort to denounce a third year who’d set the corridor - and almost his sister - ablaze.

Whilst he would have no qualms in approaching Dade directly about his unacceptable attacks on his family, Danny elected to make the assumption that Rose would take responsibility for Dade’s actions, as Danny had taken responsibility for Claudia’s. Emmett had even punched Danny over Claudia’s actions (and it had hurt, too. He’d never been the strongest Ox in the barn but apparently he’d recently learned how to pack a punch). Danny had no intention of hitting Rose, but he wanted clarification that she had admonished Dade, and her assurances that the incident would not be repeated.

He found her on the pitch, and strode over with purpose. “Rose,” he called out on approach, his tone lacking the cheer that was usually audible when he greeted a friend. His boots, jeans, and high-necked sweater made it clear that he was not here for Quidditch drills. “I need to talk to you. About Dade. And Claudia.”

    • It's okay, I'll be the adult here - Rose Farnon, Sun May 6 13:43
      Rose was on the Quidditch Pitch in gray sweats and a form-fitting black t-shirt. She had just finished working on her dives and had moved on to groundwork - exercises to strengthen her core. Due to... more
      • You are lacking maturity - Dardanius, Sun May 6 14:53
        Rose was sitting down, almost certainly post-(or mid-) work out. The tone of her reply didn’t give any indication that she felt at all embarrassed or aggrieved by the topic Danny had declared for... more
        • Actually so far that's you - Rose, Sun May 6 15:17
          So Danny was miffed that Dade and Claudia had a scrap in the hallways. Well, Dade hadn't mentioned that he’d actually managed to injure Claudia just like he hadn't mentioned anything about the fire.... more
          • For a brief moment, when Rose stood up, Danny thought that Holland was wrong: it seemed Rose had acknowledged his request, that she perhaps now had a clearer picture of what had transpired while the... more
            • I'm not so sure about that - Rose, Mon May 7 06:09
              Oh shit . Rose repeated the expletive that had just echoed in her head, hazel eyes wide. Nervously, she went to brush back the curly blonde hair that usually got all in her face at all times, before... more
              • So stubborn - Danny, Mon May 7 10:11
                Rose tried to backtrack quickly. Apparently she hadn’t meant to reveal anything about her brother. Danny could empathise - he’d suffered immeasurable resistance from Claudia, and Dade’s brother was... more
                • Obstinate is my middle name - Rose, Mon May 7 14:07
                  Dardanius Dubois was an idiot: only an idiot would offer a vague threat in the direction of Rose’s brother in the context of the discussion they were having. Emmett wasn’t always the [xest y in the... more
                  • Rose ‘Obstinate’ Farnon (-Lawrence) - Danny, Fri May 11 05:25
                    “I’m sure,” Danny replied, sounding a great deal more certain than he felt. Rose had agreed to talk to Dade, and that was all he desired out of this conversation. He accepted his sister had a very... more
