The Welcome Wagon Empty The Welcome Wagon

This was almost a new pastime, waiting outside of other House's common rooms to launch surprise attacks on unsuspecting boys. At least she had learned enough this time around to make sure she whizzed ahead of time. She was fed, she had peed, she had nothing holding her back now.

The portrait swung open and she stepped forward. "Hiya!"

Lily Potter flinched, before frowning at her. "Whoops. Sorry. Wrong Gryffindor."

Lily walked away, moving cautiously before speeding up. Not necessary, but she guessed she understood the sentiment. Damn. That was the third one.

The portrait swung open again. "Hiya!" This time she was right. She brightened as she looked at their newest (and possibly only??) American. "Quill, yeah? We have Herbology together, among other classes. I thought you might want a tour of the school, being new and all!"

He groaned, why did potions have to be in the basement? - the walk from the dungeons to the common room was the absolute worst. More often than not he'd detour to the grounds or library. But not today; no, today was a day for getting out of his robes as fast as possible. So, he had naturally booked it up the steps to the common room dashing between students. People were already talking about him so it wasn't like he was doing any extra damage to his character. It's also not like he cared.

Solace came in the form of his comfiest pair of pants and a sweater. Sitting on his bed he realized the true nature of the evening ahead of him.

he was free

No responsibilities for senior Quill on this wonderful evening. He decided it was the perfect opportunity to go and sign up for the dueling club. He'd been putting it off for quite some time now but he felt good this evening. He practically jumped off his bed and ran down the stairs through the common room. He called after the girl who was leaving through the portrait hole to hold it for him but she either ignored him or didn't hear. Oh well, there wasn't anything in his way through that portrait hole. One step outside of the common room, however, would prove that belief to be false.

Her smile, welcoming, her face, cute, her attitude - offputting. 2 out of 3 was a pretty solid start, however. After the moment of shock wore off he laughed and smiled at her.

"Oh yeah, I think I've seen you in there."

The portrait closed behind him and he motioned for them to begin walking. "I'm heading to the dueling club if you're okay going along with my schedule for the evening."

Her grin widened - he didn’t seem too thrown off by her welcome (why did everyone flinch when she came barrelling at them with her love?). It was about time they had some people in the castle who weren’t so stuffy.

“Oooh, a man who takes charge, I love it!” she said, clicking her tongue at the end of the sentence, shooting him a cheeky grin, tongue caught between her teeth. “I’m Margo, by the way.” She thrust her hand out for him to shake.

She fell into step with him. “So, I’m sure you have tons of questions, but ladies first. Because of feminism, I think. Why did you come to Hogwarts? Thinking of joining any other clubs? What’s the difference between Gryffindor and whatever house you were over there?”

He took her hand and shook it as they began to walk. He quickly learned the type of person Margo was. He blinked at the onslaught of questions as they descended a staircase and just laughed.

"Alright, yeah no kidding ladies first." he snorted through the laughter. "Uhm okay so starting from the first; didn't want to commute across an ocean every day. Second, I'm interested in Quidditch so I was thinking of trying out for the team. And finally, I'm not sure yet it's my first week."

Now, because feminism worked both ways it was his turn.

"Alright, based on your logic that means its my turn to ask you some questions!" he hopped down the last two stairs in front of her and turned to look at her.

"What house are you? Did you finish the Herbology homework? Do you have a sister?"

Margo giggled at his explanation for coming to Hogwarts. Not quite the answer she meant to get, but she liked it. She already had a good feel for Quill and thought he was smashing. So many people at Hogwarts were boring and serious and dull. They needed a bit of energy, and she couldn’t be the only one with a spark of life in her. That wasn’t fair.

“Bring it,” she said, rubbing her hands together. “I’m Ravenclaw - they’re meant to be smart and good at studying, so don’t take too much stock in how good the hat is at its job. No, I… didn’t know we had homework. Shit. And no - two brothers, who are both, like, Hogwarts legends. I do have a best friend Molly who is sorta like a sister. Right, watch this step. It’s tricky.”

She hopped over the step in the staircase and continued, “Quidditch will be fun. Careful, though. The captain is like an insane monster these days. Punch the Head Boy, got in a fight in class. I suppose it’ll be fine since you’re on her team though.”
