Merlin but he hated Quidditch.
He was beginning to get the impression that he was the only Slytherin that hadn't tried out for the stupid sport, and certainly the only one that didn't worship it like it would end all their woes and lavish them all with chocolate frogs or whatever.
He couldn't escape it in his bedroom and escaping to outside the Common Room was even worse - at least the Slytherins had some sense of decorum. Out here it was pandemonium. He disentangled himself from a balloon (deciding, in the end, to just burst it) before getting the hell out of there and retreating to the Astronomy Tower. It wasn't late enough for lessons and Theo had a talent for being inconspicuous when he had to be, sneaking into it regardless of rules. He needed to be high up to see the thestrals and he was pleased to find that no couples had snuck up here for a quick snog.
He rested his elbow on one of the sills and looked out, watching as they came up and flew round occasionally, like bats, looking strangely graceful in the sky. He avoided looking down and he wasn't thinking of jumping.
Not seriously anyway. Call it more of an educational interest.
