Don't knock it 'til you've tried it
Tue May 22, 2018 11:09

Sometimes Dade forgot that Drew had a roommate, because Huburt spent a lot of time either in the library or asleep at stupid times of the night. Huburt came out of the room as Drew answered the door and said something polite to Dade, which he responded to with a glare. He hated Huburt less than he hated some other people, but Dade was still not a fan of the younger boy. Huburt was a self-righteous know-it-all who had made some very pointed comments about the fire in Dade’s close vicinity, which Dade did not appreciate in the slightest. How the news about the fire had spread so quickly Dade didn’t know, but he really didn’t like it. It felt like everyone was talking about him. He hated that feeling.

Dade entered the room after Huburt left, standing awkwardly just inside the doorway. Huburt’s side of the room was so neat it was like nobody lived there. It was kind of creepy. Drew’s side was messier than Dade’s, but at least it looked like there was a human being in the room. Dade liked to keep his room clean but he wasn’t overly bothered by the fact that Drew’s wasn’t. He kind of had the urge to clean it up for him, but that would be weird so he never said anything about that.

“I’ll ask her in class,” Dade said. He knew Remington’s notes were better, because Remington was super on top of everything to do with class, always. But Remington was also not in Cetus, which meant he would have to leave their House and go through the commonroom, where Connor and Claudia might be, and probably Claudia was just waiting for something like that to happen. He couldn’t do it. “But can I borrow yours for now? Mine are missing.” He knew Claudia had taken them. He knew it. But he couldn’t prove it, and in order to say something Dade knew he needed proof. “And I don’t have notes from Wednesday or Thursday, anyway,” Dade added, referring to the two days he had missed class. He was pretty sure the professor wouldn’t notice, but knew that his friends probably had.

  • It’d be weird for us to have a Draco thread - Andrew Tennant, Mon May 21 17:54
    Remington was getting really good at swimming. She’d told Drew about the whole thing with the fish in the pool. It was really weird that that had happened at all—Drew had lived at RMI his whole life, ... more

      • Would that be House appropriation? - Drew, Tue May 22 11:52
        Drew frowned a little. Dade’s notes were missing? Drew immediately thought about Claudia spying on his notebook and tattling about it to his dad. She’d accused Dade of trying to learn questionable... more
        • “Banshees?” Dade made a face. He hated that all they did in Defense was learn about creatures. It had gotten better this year but last year had just been all creatures, all the time. They were doing... more
          • I have Draco friends, so it’s okay - Drew, Tue May 22 15:37
            Drew shrugged. He didn’t mind learning about banshees. Dade would like it if they did more hexes and stuff in class, but Drew thought it made sense to learn about Dark creatures in Defense Against... more
