Yours

Post by Teddy R. Lupin on Fri Mar 03, 2017 3:57 am

Dearest Avery


Avery


Hello Avery!


Dear Avery,

Hi.



Dear Avery,

Unless this beats you home (I should probably be more embarrassed about writing so quickly, James always said you were supposed to wait three days) I hope Sophie's feeling better. Regardless of whether this beats you home or not, I hope she's feeling better, of course, I didn't mean I wouldn't- I'm going to stop myself before I spiral again.

I've looked through my calendar. Of course, school looks like it might be stealing a good amount of my time away. Unless you can convince Keiran otherwise (please don't actually talk to him, I like my job) I'll probably be cooped up in the castle incapable to actually spend as much time with you as I'd like.

I do have a few days free in February. I'm letting my students take off a few days in between one exam and our final prep for the end of the year exams and the OWLs/NEWTs. Tuesday the 26th would probably be the best. If that doesn't work for you, I can try to move things around.

Of course, if you do happen to find yourself in the castle, please let me know. Maybe you can help me with grading.

And I haven't forgotten Fergus.

Yours,
Teddy

Teddy,

It didn't beat me home, but I do think she's feeling better. Perhaps it's just that she's in her pajamas and is off to bed, now. That, of course, is why it took me a while to get back to you. Ironically, I feel a bit bad for writing so belatedly.

I can't say I'm surprised about school, since the term is starting up again soon. But February works fine for me. I actually haven't got any plans for that night, yet, so it's definitely doable. And, knowing Keiran, he won't try and convince me to go round to his on a Tuesday. Much too responsible. But as far as being in the castle goes, the odds really are quite high. Keiran is Sophie's godfather, so he sees me perhaps more than he would truly like to! For her sake, of course.

I don't know much about grading, but I would be happy to help. With everything I'm trying to do at work, though, Merlin knows how much time I'll have, myself. But if that friend of yours has time, I'd really like to talk to them.

I'll go ahead and block that evening out, and perhaps once we get closer we can decide what we want to do?

Looking forward to it already,
Avery


P.S. Your friend James doesn't know what he's talking about.


Interal:
Teddy,
Oh, thank Merlin he wasn't kidding. I wasn't sure he'd go through with it.

It didn't beat me home, but I do think she's feeling better. Perhaps it's just that she's in her pajamas and is off to bed, now. You know, and because of you. But I've already gone overboard with the thanks. Maybe I'll write again once she's back to normal.. That, of course, is why it took me a while to get back to you. Ironically, I feel a bit bad for writing so belatedly. Not that I had a clue how to write something halfway casual until I'd thought about it for a bit.

I can't say I'm surprised about school, since the term is starting up again soon. But February works fine for me. Even if it's... forever away. I actually haven't got any plans for that night, yet, so it's definitely doable. And, knowing Keiran, he won't try and convince me to go round to his on a Tuesday. Much too responsible. Much too likely to forget what day the 26th is. But as far as being in the castle goes, the odds really are quite high. Keiran is Sophie's godfather, so he sees me perhaps more than he would truly like to! Avery, chill. For her sake, of course.

I don't know much about grading, but I would be happy to help. With everything I'm trying to do at work, though, Merlin knows how much time I'll have, myself. But if that friend of yours has time, I'd really like to talk to them. It would certainly give us another excuse to see each other sooner. Two months is a long time..

I'll go ahead and block that evening out, and perhaps once we get closer we can decide what we want to do? Merlin, could I have used "we" more? That probably looks pointed. Oh well. He can't think I'm not interested now, right?

Looking forward to it already,
Avery

It would sure look stupid if I used "yours" right back, wouldn't it? But Merlin, that was the sweetest thing.


P.S. Your friend James doesn't know what he's talking about.

Avery,

I'd never try to take time away from Miss Sophie. Always leave me on the back burner where she's concerned, believe me, I don't mind at all.

I had no idea Keiran was Sophie's godfather, but find I'm not at all surprised. She seems incredibly fond of him, and I'd trust Keiran with quite a bit. Wonder if he'd be my godfather.

(I'm so sorry. Apparently staying up past my bedtime brings out the worst of my humor - if you could pity me enough to even call it that.)

I can have my dragon-friend owl you, if that's alright. (The one who works with dragons... I don't have a friend that's a dragon... you probably knew that.)

If it helps, I don't know much about grading either. I just sort of guess my way through it. It's worked so far. And if you're busy, of course, don't worry! I just wanted an excuse I've already stolen more time than I deserve.

Sounds good! I'll try to make it worth the wait. :-) Sorry for making the smiley face. Immediately regretted it.

Okay, this is getting bad. Regardless, I'm also looking forward to it as well. And I hope I see you before then. (But no pressure, of course! Just... if it works out.)

Right. Yes.

Goodnight Avery.

P.S. I completely agree.

Teddy :-) ,

I deeply wish that you had a friend that was a dragon. Perhaps you could give me advice as well. But yes, I would love to hear from them. And I'll let you know what we come up with.

As far as Keiran is concerned, he probably would. He seems to adopt... everyone, really. (Trust me, though -- you're undoubtedly a great deal funnier than I am.)

But don't be silly, Teddy. If it weren't for work, and Sophie and Fergus, I would happily find an excuse to drop by. I just don't have any idea when that'll happen, unfortunately.

Please don't apologize for reaching out. Do so whenever you want to.

Goodnight, Teddy.
Sweet dreams.

-a few days later-

Yo Avery,

Hey, think we met a few times. Ted-o says you got a dragon problem. No worries. When can we meet? Send me a few options and we'll get this going.

Also, Teddy's letter mentioned like ten times that he'd be happy to tag along, has an interest in dragons or something. So I'll figure out when's best for all of us.


-Jack

Jack,

Yes, I think we must have, if you're the Jack I think you are. I wasn't sure who to expect when Teddy said he had a friend who could help. I do recall him mentioning something about wanting to be there as well, so that's perfectly fine.

I'm free any weekend provided I know a week or two in advance and can make arrangements for it. Fergus is in a Ministry pen, and I do have a trainer that's been trying to work with him, but I'd hoped to get another opinion on things. So I'm grateful that you're available to help.

Genuinely, whenever you think is best works fine!
Best,
Avery

Avery,

Yep, that's me.

Cool. Two Saturdays from now then. Owl me if anything changes.
