Right, Greenland ministers are not the elk. Right. -must perpetually remind self-
LOL MURIEL AND MATHS. Percy is being abused by a 150-to-200-year-old granny. Also you used the word malarkey ♥ Oh dear Percy, mixing Muriel and politics. Bad combo there.
And all is well when Herbert the unicorn and Hugo arrive :3 LUMPY. AHH. Oh my god I want to be part of this guild. I love that' it's a guild and not a mere club. Clubs are for mortals. Guilds are for Hugos. WHO BRINGS SUGAR LUMPS IN HIS HAIR.
Eep, girlbonding time :3 I do love these sort of scenes. Especially since Marjie and Rose are so clever with all the screws in the right place. Well, unless the top's blown off Rose's kettle.
DISCOVERER OF SOMETHING REALY SECRET OMG HE HAS A PLAQUE . Knowing Hugo, it was really almost unbelievably thoughtful of him to have remembered that he shared the quarters with other boys at all. B/C THEY ARE CLEARLY LESSER BEINGS WITHOUT SUGAR IN THEIR HAIR.
THE WHOLE FAMILY'S HERE AND THE FIRST THING HE THINKS IS THAT IT'S HIS BIRTHDAY ♥
lolol fountain of youth joke ♥ ♥
EVERYONE IS HERE. I DEMAND A PARTY. Or you know, plotty things. ♥ ♥ ♥ cannae wait.
Author's Response: I LOVE THAT STATE OF MIND. I'm jealous of that though. It should have been the elk. SHOULD HAVE BEEN, I SAY.
Percy is a Gryffindor but I have never quite pictured him as the type to stand up to authority. He has quite visibly valued that throughout the series; while that made him treacherous in OotP, I see it here as an easy way to make him a kind of doormat of the comical variety.
I really love the unicorns and cannot wait to write more of them! Eventually, as was the fate of Hugo et al. in Adventure, they will find their voices. Perhaps, well, no, I won't say whether or not I mean that in a literal way :3 And, of course, we're talking about UNICORNS!~*~*~* so there must be shiny things, and guilds, ofc, are shiny. Hugo is pretty much a master inventor of ways to transport things. And his hair is basically the thirty-first member of the Weasley-Potter family, so why not put it to use?
Rose is a bit of a nutter. But Marjie, though also nutty, is more normal. She is the butter to Rose's toast. I mean to say, they're actually good friends. While they were both worrying about Scorpius and Hugo ~that fateful week!~ back in Hugo's fifth year, they figured out they could get on quite well together, and have been close since then. A lot of the time they're on the same wavelength. But as I haven't explained the reality of their friendship, I am trying to build it up in this story as a self-contained story.
Yes, you understand EVERYTHINGGG. Only those lucky ones whose patron saints are Bacchus are skilled enough to carry sugar in their hair, and thus worthy enough to have a plaque. A self-made plaque, nonetheless.
I mean, I couldn't help but think that Hugo would have most often been around his family at Christmas, Easter and his birthday. For whatever reason he knows it's not Christmas or Easter so by logical deduction it is obviously his birthday. No matter that a few days before this, no, maybe even the night before he'd been with all of them...
I just read this chapter again and I actually LOL'd at the fountain of youth. It's super random but also sagely. Only Hugo can merge wisdom with absolute nonsense, I believe.
There will be a party, of sorts, I think. I'm not sure yet, as I'm not done writing the chapter in which it all happens. BUT I can guarantee plotty things!! â¥ â¥ â¥ MANY HEARTS 4 U (h) (h)
