Roxanne bounced into the Great Hall, scanning the heads of the people eating dinner and shooting a grin to a few of her cousins before finally spotting her target. Good, she'd half been expecting him to still be at his desk, with some poor house elf serving him snacks. With all her considerable amount of determination, she marched between the tables, coming to a halt just behind Theodore Nott.
"I need to borrow you," she announced, as way of introduction. Without thinking, Roxanne reached down and grabbed Theo's hand, pulling him to his feet before dragging him unceremoniously out of the hall. "It's almost done," she said over her shoulder, all but skipping on the balls of her feet as she led them up staircases and through corridors (secret and normal) in the direction of her rooms. "I think we've cracked it. It was that ratchet wheel, just like you said. It wasn't oscillating properly or something. Anyway, it didn't seem right to fire her up without you."
Pushing her door open, Roxanne gestured to the rather impressive (she thought so, anyway) astrarium sitting on the centre workbench. It had to be said, it was very pleasing, with its gleaming bronze curves and interlocking wheels. In her mind, she compared it to a particularly elegant wand - the finished product certainly gave her the same rich feeling of satisfaction. Greater than the sum of it's parts, or whatever. Pleased, Roxanne crossed the room and snatched up the wheel from where she'd left it, holding it out to Theo. "Go on, then."
