Re: Jamie and Scorpius
"Nope. I actually was telling him about this old etiquette book in the library, wouldn't open or close unless you said 'please' or 'thank you' yesterday." Jamie shrugged, not about to argue when it was true. But, then, Jamie hadn't really been a fan of Hufflepuffs, Ravenclaws, or Gryffindors, either. He'd stopped trusting people in general early in his first year. "There might have been one or two more than grew on me, despite trash talk on the pitch," he added, looking pointedly at one who had.
"And this makes me seem not human?" Honestly, he had always thought the charade was just part of the game, that behind it he was fairly normal. Except for the part where his parents were Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley and both seemed to frequently forget they had three children. But, he could also admit, to himself, that his confidence had taken a bit of a hit since coming here. Too few people, not enough facades to hide the raw parts behind while he and his dad worked out their not-quite-history.
"Well, it's not a question I've thought about and you're the one saying your line would end. I'm the one still trying to wrap my head around being attracted to men and whether or not I've ever really been attracted to women." And Jamie had never felt an urge to have kids. He was too much like his dad. He'd probably fuck them up worse than he had been, he'd always thought. But, this wasn't about Jamie. "I think it would take some getting used to. It's a big change, even if it's one you want, and I would assume fairly permanent unless you go through this whole process in reverse...at least I'm assuming there's a whole process? And that it's safe? But, if it's what will make you happiest in the long run, if it's what you truly want, then who am I to tell you not to do it?"
