Re: Theo and Scorpius
"It might not be a good thing but I guarantee it will be a fun thing," he said all too happy to proceed. "I'm in and really if everyone is looking at me, who is watching anyone else?" He said feeling rather pleased by the idea. It was likely to yield some results and that added to his interest, but mostly it felt exhilarating. "We manage to pull a few heartstrings and people get up in arms, then they have to at the least extend some aid. I truly doubt they will come here or invite any of us round, not for quite some time. Still, it will push things. We could use a little momentum."
Unable not to smile he couldn't help the wide grin that lit up his weary face. "I don't really try that it sort of just happens that way. It's my nature. I do from time to time do so for sport that much is true." He almost rolled his eyes at the mention of the Minister, but just shrugged instead. "You know, I think I could speak on the other side of the castle and Potter would somehow sense it and still be annoyed. So I generally don't factor him into much of what I do. I do hear what your saying, but it's not an immediate concern of mine. It's just cleaning house."
"Oh I am different to be sure, but the same in some ways. I've just learned to make a game of it. It's far less depressing a fate that way," he said happily. He couldn't help but feel terribly complimented by the comparison. "Thank you, that's actually very flattering. For me at least. I rather like it," he said thoughtfully. "Malfoys and their preening birds," he said with a chortle. "Shit happens. Let's just proceed with that idea that everything wants to kill you, and be pleasantly surprised when most times it turns out false."
Normal was boring and predictable and all the most interesting and significant people were usually anything but. He knew how that felt though, being outside the norm. "Your father is one of my favorite people, with good reason. He'll accept anything you chose." He said listening to not only what Scorpius said but what he didn't. "Just be sure. Man, woman, or linger in the grey areas. If it's what you want, just reach out and take it. Just be sure it's all your bargained for."
