You're also a pianist

“Hey,” Danny replied, his grin broadening. Camilla didn’t seem to mind the distraction, and the way she flexed her fingers indicated she might have been about due for a break, anyway. She further reinforced his feeling that his presence was not unwelcome as she asked the generic post-holidays conversation starter, “How was your midterm?”

He shrugged. “It was fine,” he said, as he shifted his weight back onto his own two feet instead of against the piano. Danny brushed some lint off his dark blue sweater, worn over a white button-down with jeans and his green boots. “Nothing like the parties of the East Coast, I’m sure,” he laughed a little. He didn’t know many people who moved in those social circles, but still he’d heard that she’d joined the society scene. Some rumours seemed to suggest he was involved with Camilla - combined with the picture he’d painted for himself with Rose over the summer, Danny wasn't objecting to his apparent, though wholly fictional popularity - but more seemed to suggest she was with some other guy Danny didn’t know. It wasn’t EJ, that was for sure. “How’s that working out for you?”

He was pleased for Camilla if she was pleased; he knew her experiences of their sort of society hadn’t always been pleasant, but she looked content enough right now for him to believe nothing too heinous had occurred in her absence from RMI. While Danny’s own attendance had been halved, thanks to being grounded for a week, he’d still made it to the New Year’s Eve party his parents had hosted at his own home, and he’d still spent some time with Elinor, even though there were rumours about her, too. He thought she was pretty, and good company, and if that was the end of the story then he might be interested, but her family was one of the very traditional, very prominent family of the South, and Dardanius wasn’t sure he wanted to get mixed up in all that. Certainly not right now, anyway. Maybe one day he’d give it some real thought, but for now he was just passing the time, and Elinor was on the same page.

        “Apparently everything changes once you have Alec Edwards´seal of approval,” Camilla answered Danny’s question with a serious tone, but her lips were pursued in a small smile. The blonde´s experience ... more
        • Sometimes a break is good for us - Danny, Wed Sep 20 15:00
          Danny nodded along while Camilla briefly explained her altered circumstances. He'd never had much to do with the Edwards families, but was peripherally aware of them, mostly by dint of attending... more
          • Hope it's not a long break! - Camilla, Wed Sep 20 15:39
            The blonde scooted over while she listened to Danny talking about inevitabilities, armies, strategies and sleep. Camilla chuckled and shifted her position to face her friend. Danny seemed changed?... more
            • Be careful what you wish for - Danny, Wed Sep 20 16:32
              Whatever they were talking about, Camilla seemed to accept his premise that the future needed tone confronted in any hurry. He liked her metaphor of walking into her future; it was apt. He was trying ... more
              • I'm certain that's a very good wish - Camilla, Thu Sep 21 11:07
                “You are absolutely right,” Camilla grinned back at Danny. Their personalities were too opposite and even when she enjoyed and liked Danny they didn't compliment one another that well. Yes, they... more
                • Traditionally you get Three - Danny, Sun Sep 24 15:41
                  Dardanius grinned, enjoying Camilla's flattery. He had never considered himself to be unattractive, and the awkwardness of adolescence was receding from his features with satisfying results, which,... more

                      Danny didn’t disagree; he liked Rachel and thought they probably would have a good time, and he was sort of excited about it. That didn’t stop it feeling all kinds of weird, though. The chances of... more

                        Danny was one of the most respectful and nice wizards she had ever met. Camilla was sure that life through Danny’s eyes would be a very interesting experience in every aspect. She was sure Danny was... more

                          Danny nodded along as Camilla concluded he had years left to decide what to do with his life. He genuinely hoped that was true, because he was counting on it. Even without all the family stuff to... more
