For today, I am reposting a little fanfic drabble I threw on tumblr a while back. Setting is Hogwarts, characters are based on a novel I’ve been working on for… a while…
“For the last time, Theo. Dragons are dangerous and worst of all illegal.”
“But just think, having your own dragon!”
“I am thinking.” I sighed in exasperation. “You’re not. As usual.”
“I mean, Alarie is a great owl,” he continued, ignoring me completely, “but imagine having a dragon delivering your mail! You’d be sitting at breakfast and suddenly there comes this great flapping of wings, and this majestic dragon lands right in front of you–”
“On the table?”
“Right in front of you, as everyone stares in awe. There in the silence, the dragon holds out its taloned claw, to you and you alone, delivering your letter.”
“Charred remains of your letter, you mean.”
“Oh shut up.” Theo swiped at my head, but I easily ducked. “You’re such a spoil-sport, Sam.”
“It’s a difficult job you know, having common sense for two people.” I sniffed disdainfully, doing my best to look down my nose at him. It’s not easy when you’re almost a foot shorter. “You should appreciate me more.”
“Alright then.” He deftly reached over and snatched my notebook out of my arms.
“Hey! What are you doing?” I made a grab for the notebook but he easily moved it above my reach.
“I promise I will pay more heed to your common sense if you can get this back. Without magic.”
“Oh come on, that’s not fair!” I glared up at him. “You’re going to make me late for class.”
“It’s perfectly fair! You have common sense for two people, while I,” he placed the notebook on top of his head, “have an excellent new hat.”
“It’s a stupid hat. Give it back.”
“No, thank you.”
“Sam!” He mimicked my tone exactly.
I fumed silently at him, counting to ten. Finally I pulled out my wand. “Accio notebook.” It flicked neatly out of his hands and into my arms.
“Cheater,” he accused me cheerfully.
