Re: Jamie and Scorpius
Jamie chuckled. "No argument from me on that one. I'll just have a talk with Dad and get him to add it to the rules." Although, from the rampage against those birds his father had been intent on the previous night, there might be more fact than fiction to the jest.
Smiling as the look in Scorpius' eyes calmed, he nodded. "She is very much the Gryffindor. Remember how much she tried to argue with the Hat to put her with you and Al? And it refused. She's more Gryffindor than I am. But, yes, she'll be fine. And likely storming the research group to help identify those birds once Marlene's sedatives wear off completely." Jamie could wish Uncle Rolf and Aunt Luna both were there. Somehow, no matter how bleak, Aunt Luna always could find something positive in the situation.
And she was much better at comforting people than Jamie was.
"I remember that Uncle Charlie wouldn't have cared if they healed completely or not and it can also vary with the severity. But, if they can find a cure for the poison, there's a chance they can mitigate any scarring as well." Seeing the aborted motion, he moved his own hand to rest over Scorpius' as lightly as possible. "But, Scor, it's not vanity. It's your career. It's as important as a Seeker losing their eyesight. It's natural for you to be worried and feel free to point me at anyone who says differently so I can hex them for you."
