PostSubject: Thoughts on revelations (Prim and Chris)   Sat Feb 11, 2017 7:05 pm

Playing the violin had always calmed Prim down, especially since half of the time she usually played when annoyed or upset with someone or something. It was the reason why she was currently in the Arts, Music & Dance room playing out her thoughts on the violin, her lips pursed and her brows furrowed as she thought on the revelation she had received from James just a couple of days ago about being a part of the Byrne family, a bastard child of James' uncle who, it seemed, had abandoned her in the orphanage when he couldn't seem to take care of her anymore.

Truthfully, the brunette was pissed at hell at her birth father and James had witnessed her impressive temper tantrum that she was very embarrassed about but also she doubted anyone could blame her. Letting out a soft sigh, the girl moved onto another song, her eyes slipping closed as she moved around the room in tune to the song, her feet naturally moving to the beat of the song.

Christopher had had a good day - with it being pretty free on his timetables he'd spent the morning finishing up his homework and studies, before heading out in to the grounds to work out. Four hours (and a very nice relaxing bath in the Prefect's Bathroom) later, Christopher was making his way up to the Arts Room in search of Keona. They hadn't officially set a time to meet there, but Christopher decided to head up early, worst case scenario, he could try his hand at the piano again.

Though music wasn't really his forte, he had had his lessons in the past.

And, it would probably impress Keona anyway.

Slipping through the door of the Arts Room, Christopher's ears were met with the sound of a violin - and thankfully not an out of tune player. Shutting the door carefully so as not to distract the player, Christopher turned to see a familiar face. The witch from the Quidditch pitch who's name he had not known until Professor Newbury had stated it in their last Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson.

"Didn't take you for a classical musician, Primrose." Christopher announced himself, watching the younger witch a few moments before giving her a small smile. Many people thought the Ravenclaw to be an arrogant ass. But, away from the groups of people that insisted on popularity being some vulgar cult, Christopher was a friendly soul.

Prim had been fairly immersed in her thoughts of her father and her true lineage that she hadn't actually seen or heard Chris enter the room until he had spoken up and when he did, she spun in startlement and stopped playing, her eyes wide and her heart hammering against her chest as she stared at the Richardson heir for a couple of long seconds before she let out a sigh, her arms lowering as she placed the violin on the piano next to where she stopped.

"Christopher." The brunette said with a nod of her head. "I didn't take you for a music person either but I suppose appearances can be deceiving huh?" She said with a wry grin on her lips as she patted her violin. "I've been playing it ever since I was six... maybe seven.. Can't remember now." She furrowed her brows at that before giving Chris a small smile in reply to his smile.

"How are you doing?" She questioned the Ravenclaw with a soft smile.

Seeing the witch jump made Christopher cringe a little to himself. He hadn't meant to make her jump, but staying quiet until she'd finished, or until she noticed him was possibly not a good idea either. However, the younger witch took it quite nicely, and Christopher couldn't help the small laugh that left him.

"Oh, I'm not a musical person really. But my fiance is." Christopher explained, he wouldn't go further than that on the subject of Keona. The world could believe that Christopher was taken by the sound of her beautiful music, or the way she danced so elegantly, but the truth of the situation was that they had been meeting for something much different than that. "Keona plays piano, but I couldn't tell you how long she's been playing." Christopher added, motioning to the piano that now supported Primrose's violin.

"From the song you were playing... I'd say I'm doing much better than you. But I might be reading too much in to it." Christopher replied, moving across to one of the chairs in the room and making himself comfortable. "I've had the day to sweat out the nuisances in my life, and I feel much more relaxed now." Christopher told her with a small smile. "Please, don't stop on my account." He added, motioning to the violin as he rested his head on the back of the chair, allowing himself to just relax so that he didn't undo his stress relief.

Prim let a soft chuckle leave her lips as she rolled her shoulders, trying to get some feeling back into her shoulders before she took up her violin again as she listened to Christopher talk about his fiance and how she could play the paino. Prim had heard that the Ravenclaw was engaged but she didn't know who so she didn't presume anything, much less who the mysterious girl was. She had heard her name, Keona, a couple of times but she didn't know who exactly she was.

"You probably are doing much better than me." She agreed with a soft huff as she placed the violin on her shoulder again and the bow against the strings as she slowly started to play the music again. "I would love to meet your fiance one of these days, maybe we would be able to play together." She hummed softly as the soft sounds continued emitting from her violin.

"You know... Ah... never mind." She shook her head and sighed before she continued playing.

"Oh, I'm sure you'll bump in to her in here from time to time." Christopher replied to the comment of wanting to meet Keona. It was slightly curious as to why Prmirose would care to meet his fiance, but Christopher decided against thinking too much on that subject. Best not to worry yourself with other people's fickle ideas.

Primrose's agreement to him doing better than her had sparked an interest in Christopher, though, but she didn't elaborate on the point. The Ravenclaw was naturally curious, but he decided to give her a while longer to explain herself before he would push her for details. After all, it was somewhat private, and it would be very rude of him to impose himself on the situation.

On cue, Primrose seemed to be trying to open up. Christopher raised an eyebrow as she started to speak and then second guessed herself. Christopher once again allowed a moment or two to pass, before speaking. "I know a fair few things..." Christopher told her, smiling to show he was only playing with her words and not being an arrogant toe rag. "But not what's bothering you. You can tell me, if you want, but no pressure."

Prim hummed softly at that as she thought on whether she should actually bother Chris with her worries; she didn't want to seem like a whiner and she knew that being a Pureblood there was a possibility that Chris would see her beneath him for being a Bastard child of the brother of the Byrne Lord. The thought alone just made her grimace as she thought on the scandal that would cause if the general populace of the Wizarding World found out.

Abandoning his daughter to fend for herself and not even informing anyone of her existence, almost as if he wished she would just disappear. Prim hated her father and even though she never met him, and she never would, she doubted she would get to like him at all or even respect him. After all what father would abandon their own child?

"..." Prim licked her lips as the music slowed down considerably, her hand automatically moving the bow back and forth against the strings of the violin. "I just... found out some stuff that bother me..." She started, slowly and cautiously as she looked out of the window, ignoring the little voice in the back of her head that said to not tell anyone.

"How... would you feel if, after ten years of believing you were alone, you suddenly found out you have a family and that your father is a prick who just didn't want to take care of you?"

A great way to start Prim, a really great way, the girl chided herself before she turned to look at Chris, her eyes showing her conflicted feelings.

PostSubject: Re: Thoughts on revelations (Prim and Chris)   Sun Feb 12, 2017 8:15 pm

Waiting for the witch to say something, Christopher took to checking his fingers for any dirt he might have missed whilst he'd bathed. Not because he was bored, he just felt better giving Primrose some space whilst she worked through things in her head, and there was little else of interest in the room for him to focus on.

The first sentence was redundant, and had it been one of his sisters making such a point, he'd have told them what a useless point of air those words had been. Primrose was not one of them, though, so he bit his tongue to stop himself. She was upset enough as it was, without him making her use words only that had value.

Primrose's question made Christopher raise an eyebrow as his eyes found their way back to the younger witch. Now, that was an interesting situation. Sitting up straight in the chair, Christopher's full attention was now on the witch, thinking through the scenario carefully.

"One would assume that that was a rhetorical question." Christopher pointed out, because those kinds of questions bothered him immensely. Why ask if you did not wish for an answer? Christopher allowed a pause for further consideration.

"I would imagine, however, that this is very difficult. Abandoned?" The Ravenclaw asked, before deciding for himself. "Yes, no mother, otherwise you'd not assume to be alone. Therefore... children's homes..." Christopher demised, seeing Primrose in a different light now than he had before. She played with her cards close to her chest, of that much Christopher could see now. "Quite the feat saving for the broom, in that case.

"As for your father, well, if you have been alone all these years, and you've managed, I can't say that your father not caring changes anything. You didn't depend on him before, you don't need to now." Christopher concluded, before projecting his own question. "So, why then are you so upset about all of this whe it does little to change your circumstances?"

Prim would've been genuinely upset with Chris had the boy interrupted her trail of words; she hated speaking about what bothered her and only one person really knew her as close as she would dare to let anyone know her. Though naturally Prim didn't tell Max her dilemmas about finding out that she was a Byrne, a bastard child of the traitor Byrne who had gotten involved with Voldemort, which just made Prim's life much more difficult then she had anticipated it being.

"Yes, children's home." She grimaced and shook her head, she hated talking about her home life, or the lack of one at least, it was still a sore subject to this point and it was due to that that she hated her father, for having abandoned her in an orphanage.

"Considering the circumstances, I don't think anyone would be happy." Prim said before she took a deep breath and stared at Chris with worry clear in her blue eyes. "Walter Byrne, that's who my father is. I'm quite sure you know his history at least."

She had known his history way before James revealed who her father was so she knew she had a right to be upset with her father.

Christopher merely acknowledged the point of Primrose being from a Children's Home with a nod. Such places were just tales to Christopher, tales from books, tales from charity events, but never a reality. Primrose did not fit the bill, in Christopher's opinion, of someone who should be from a children's home, but he kept the comment to himself. Instead simply processing this insight for another time.

The bombshell that was dropped a moment later, however, had Christopher's eyebrows raising in surprise before he had chance to control it. A small hint of amusement threatened to touch his lips for a few moments. How could Primrose seriously think that she would be the daughter of Walter Byrne? But the very serious look on the younger witch's features halted the amusement before it could fully form on the Ravenclaw's features.

"You mean... the Walter Byrne who sided with Lord Voldemort?" Christopher asked, making sure they were talking about the same person. "I... thought he'd been in America since the second wizarding war..?" He added, very confused indeed with all of this.

"And... that makes you... half a Byrne." He finished, rather uncertainly as he tried to piece together whether the witch before him was actually a Pureblood or not.

It had taken Prim a full week and a half to come to terms with the fact that her father was Walter Byrne, truthfully had she not seen the letter nor had she been able to touch the Byrne heirlooms that James' had she probably would still be denying it but the fact of the matter was, Walter was her father and she was part Byrne.

"My reaction exactly." She said dryly as she stopped playing to focus on the conversation she was having with the seventh year Ravenclaw, the slight amusement on his face was a clear indication that he didn't believe her though that amusement soon vanished and she was only met with Chris' shock.

"Mmm.. That Walter Byrne, the same one that sided with Lord Voldemort." She grimaced, looking away and frowning. "Apparently he still is in America but there's a probability he came back to the UK to drop me off at the orphanage when I was four. After all, someone under that age wouldn't remember who her parents were."


"Mmm, apparently so." The girl snorted in derision. "It was confirmed when I was able to touch and open up a Byrne Family book that was coated in enchantments to not let anyone who isn't a blood Byrne touch it or see it."

Christopher listened to each of the confirmations, processing the information that he was given, and trying to tie it all up. Truthfully, it made very little sense, but then some of the most amazing things in life didn't make any sense at all. That was the beauty of life, Christopher imagined.

Whilst everything made sense - even if highly unexpected, Christopher still had questions. It was likely the witch had many a question too, that she didn't know the answer to. It took Christopher a few moments to control his own curiosity, working thing through in his own head, before he posed the most important question.

"So, what will you do with this information? Now that you know you have a family - there are three of them here, if I'm not mistaken... Florrie... James... and... oh, what's the other one... Anthony. They'll be your cousins..." Christopher posed all the information, quirking an eyebrow at the witch to try to get an understanding of what Prim's plans were. This was big news for the Pureblood community, and Christopher was intrigued to know more.

The question that Chris posed her was fairly understandable yet Prim just didn't have an answer for it. Okay, she had a family and sure she had cousins, a father, an uncle and an aunt. Should she be happy about that though? For most of her life, at least what she could remember really, she had been alone and she had gotten along fairly well like that yet the stability of a family that she could've made her weaver. What if they didn't want her as family, after all Walter is the black stain on the Byrne family and, being his offspring, Prim would be counted as one as well wouldn't she?

"I don't know what I want..." Prim answered truthfully, with a frown on her face and a confused expression in her eyes. "I mean... I suppose I'm happy to know I have a family yet... I just... Will they want me? Will they be happy with me being even in any way connected to them? After all my... father..." She grimaced. "Got involved with Voldemort... and they refuse to even acknowledge him..."

Christopher simply nodded as she explained that she didn't know what she wanted. That wasn't exactly a surprise for the Ravenclaw, after all, she'd only just found out, and the confusion must be overwhelming for her, truthfully.

"If you want an answer to that..." Christopher replied, shifting his weight to the side of the chair, leaning his head on his hand as he looked over towards Primrose with a look that showed he was considering his next words carefully. "Your mother is an unknown, I would imagine. She could be a squib, a muggle, a witch of no note, or perhaps a tainted Pureblood woman by your father's hand. You... if you'll forgive me for being blunt... are going to be something of a burden. Your true lineage can be glossed over, they could make you a Pureblood in all but blood, really.

"But you're... going to be a problem that needs solving." Christopher explained. "I don't wish to be mean, so please forgive me. But, our world is very cruel, and... for once, I don't think I have an answer." He finished, still trying to work this out. "If you're going to jump in to their family, though..." Christopher let out a small amused chuckle, only two or three syllables. "Be ready to be married off very soon. They will want the truth swept from public view very fast."

If there was one thing Prim knew about the Pureblood culture is that they hated the stain's on their families and she was a large stain on their family, a completely innocent party truthfully but with Walter being her father it instantly made her a burden to the Byrne's.

Her shoulder's dropped as she listened to Chris and while she wanted to deny all of that, whine and winge that nothing like that would happen she was perfectly aware that it would. She had read enough Wizarding and Pureblood custom books to know that she would be married off if she did want to get involved with their family. The question was, would she like that kind of lifestyle, though? She was a free spirit and she had dreams of being a Hit Wizard in the future but if she was married off would she still be able to do it? Would she be able to handle being chained down to her husband?

"I'm well aware of that fact." Prim said bitterly as she looked out of the window, her teeth biting into her lower lip as she wondered on what to actually do. "The Pureblood Custom's books and the Wizarding Culture books were very thorough on that... In the end, I'm just an unneeded blight on their family really... aren't I?"

She wished now she never found out about who her father was, maybe then she wouldn't be so confused with so many questions rushing around her head.

Christopher knew that his words were harsh - very true, but harsh - and as he said them, he did feel guilty for inflicting such truths on the young witch. This was his life, though, his reality. He would not deter from the ways of the Pureblood world, because following them meant power. But he wasn't completely blind to the atrocities which were their ideologies.

As the witch turned to the window with the notion that she knew, Christopher felt a pang of guilt, and got up from his chair, moving to the side of the room where Prim stood. As a Pureblood male, Christopher was not overly good with affection in the sense of compassion, and speaking about it. He knew how to love, of course, but he and his sisters had never been overly big on comforting one another.

But, he tried.

Putting his arm around the younger witch's shoulder, Christopher gave her a soft squeeze. "The trick then," Christopher prompted the witch, because Merlin he'd gone through so many situation planning lessons in his life he could see open doors where others couldn't. "Is to make the Byrne's believe they do need you. Even if you are a blight on their family, show them you're worth having." He told her, if she could work something out to fulfill that... well, Christopher would call her an asset just for that much.

Prim found herself, suddenly, hating her father for abandoning her in Britain, couldn't he have done it in America? At least then she would've been living free from all this worry and she could've still been kept in the dark about her true lineage.

The sudden arm around her shoulders and a squeeze on said shoulder startled the young witch and she stared at the clearly male arm with confusion before she relaxed her stiff posture and stared out of the window, her brows furrowed in confusion.

"...What can I do though? The only things I'm good at are DADA and Potion's really and my dream is to be a Hit Wizard." She said with a bit of a sullen tone to her voice as she thought hard on what she could actually do; the girl though only thought about things subject wise at Hogwarts and not what she could do herself.

As the witch tried to work out what she could do, Christopher stayed quiet. The two things she'd listed, along with the job she wanted we're pretty standard issue things. Not to mention, not wholly feminine and wanted within a Pureblood family. The idea of Verena wanting to be something like a Hit Wizard was an amusing thought, but Christopher didn't allow the amusement to reach his face.

The Ravenclaw allowed an elongated pause to ensue after Primrose was finished, allowing her time to see more than what she was good at academically. As Primrose didn't extend on that much, Christopher managed to contain his sigh before speaking.

"Well, for one you're musically talented. Whether that extends past the violin, I couldn't say, but your violin playing is very good. You can fly well - which though not necessarily valued by Pureblood families, it's still a very good trait. I don't know you very well to be able to make a list. But, it's not just what you're good at by tests." Christopher explained, hoping to help Primrose think of a few more things herself.

Prim wasn't someone who would conform to rules but she knew that as a Byrne she would be required to at least agree with what her uncle wanted of her and truthfully the man seemed at least a little bit agreeable when she had read that letter so she figured the man would, at least, be able to give Prim some leeway in what he wanted her to do. But she wouldn't give up her dream of being a Hit Wizard. It was something she dreamed of doing ever since she had come to Hogwarts and heard about that and she wouldn't stop, no matter what.

The brunette grimaced slightly but she did silently agree that she was talented musically and yes, it did extend past the violin. She could also play the piano but she preferred the string instrument to the huge keyboard one.

"I can also play the piano a little bit but I prefer the violin really... And flying I've been pretty good at ever since I got on a broom." She stared out of the window and frowned. "I've also got an eidetic memory so it's easy for me to retain information..." She trailed off and frowned even more.

"The piano is great!" Christopher told the witch when she said she could play that instrument. "Honestly, the amount of girls that were brought before me as suitors that could play the piano was unbearable - I'm not saying it's a bad instrument to play, but if you can, then you fit in with the other girls, do you see?" Christopher tried to explain, though he'd probably made her sound like she had a common talent. It wasn't, musical gifts to Purebloods were a big thing.

The memory thing was also good...

Thinking for a moment, Christopher turned to the witch with a smile. "Well, you realise that any good Pureblood is very aware of a number of things. For example, all my sisters were taught the right way to dress, the right way to present themselves to society. But, they're also taught how to recognise another family - you know, key traits. What they do for their wealth, and at least a brief history of the family. It would mean you'd be good at that..." Christopher offered, not sure again if this was help or hindrance to the witch beside him.

"But I don't want to fit with other girls." Prim muttered in disgust, growing up being different is what the brunette had been used to only now to find out that she was going to be pretty much compared to other pureblood girls who she was going to be forced to hang around with at times. "I hate being compared like that..." And it was something that she knew perfectly well would happen but she also knew it was going to be needed.

"Yeah, well, I was brought up in the muggle world, in a freaking orphanage; the only reason why I even have a broom and some nice clothes is because I painstakingly saved up money by doing odd jobs around the village where the orphanage was." She said with a huff but she did listen to Chris and what he was saying. The thing about having an eidetic memory meant that she could pretty much remember anything as long as she read it or heard about it.

"I suppose that would be something of an advantage for me so that I don't insult some of them." She hummed softly.

"Oh, no, no, Prim. You're misunderstanding me." Christopher told the witch as she seemed to get a little huffy. "I'm not asking you to fit in. I'm asking you to let them believe you do. The dull things like piano playing - okay it's not dull, just common, are the kinds of things you'd talk to a suitor about in front of your parents. Then, when you get some time alone with the guy, you can tell him about the things you like that aren't particularly uniform. Though, of course, you need to make sure you're not trying to seduce some high official who won't take kindly to you cussing like a sailor."

The idea of earning money with odd jobs was a foreign one, and Christopher simply pretended to have an understanding of what that could possibly be like, but fell a little short. "Well, at least you earned it, I would suppose." He managed to say in response, but even he wasn't convinced with those words, truth be told.

"Not insulting your future husband - or a business deal - would be a good place to start. I can... help you, if you'd like. If you'd like to go to the first meeting with the Byrne's at least a little bit equipped to deal with them." Christopher offered, though Primrose wouldn't have to accept.

Prim frowned as she listened to Chris, her lips pursing in thought as she let Christopher's words flow over and over in her head; she hadn't actually thought on pretending and letting them believe that she was fitting in. It didn't sit right with her but she knew for a fact that if she did want to do something with her life she would have to pretend that she was one of those stuffy pureblood girls who would only be a trophy wife. "I do not cuss like a sailor." She muttered petulantly though it was untrue as she did tend to cuss all the time. "...I can pretend... And let them believe." She grimaced.

"Unlike most people I didn't actually have any sort of financial help, I had to get by on my own." She sighed softly as she heard his words; she didn't even believe the fake understanding in his words. Not many people could understand earning money with odd jobs, after all it's not like the Wizarding World even needed children to do odd end jobs just to earn money.

"That's going to be hard, considering the fact that I can't keep my mouth shut when I hate someone." She deadpanned and shrugged her shoulders before she blinked her eyes at Christopher's offer of help, which she was genuinely thinking of accepting. "...I would... like the help." She said wearily and slightly apprehensively.

"You do. I'm sorry. Ladies, girls from my world, they wouldn't utter a swear word if their lives depended on it. It's... uncouth." Christopher tried to explain. Personally, he didn't mind it, but he was male, he had the luxury of free speech. "Pretending is the easy part. Convincing people is the more interesting side." Christopher told the witch with a smirk on his lips. She probably had no idea what she was going to step in to, which was precisely why she couldn't step in to it unprepared.

Watching the witch as she tried to decide about his offer, Christopher mentally smacked her for shrugging. Instead, he lifted his hands to her shoulders, putting them back in to their 'natural' position for the witch. "First lesson. Ladies do not shrug. It's terrible for your posture, and common to boot." Christopher told her, moving one hand to the small of her back. "Stand up straight, shoulders back, chin level." He told her, waiting for her to do so, before stepping back.

"There, you're taller, more confident, and ten times more imposing than the slouching woman you were portraying two second ago." Christopher told her with a smile. "Now, pretend I'm Charles Byrne. This is your first meeting with him." Christopher suggested, moving away to the chair he'd once been sat on. He turned it so that he was facing away from her, and sat down.

"When you're ready, go." Christopher told the witch, using the mirrors on the wall to watch her every move.

Primrose couldn't say anything to that and instead sulked silently; Chris was right, she did cuss a lot but it's not like she could help it, there was literally no filter between her brain and mouth when it came to that and truthfully it was the power of free speech that let her carry on cussing. Not the best but not the worst either.

A softly squeak left her lips when her shoulders were forcibly put back into their natural position but she acknowledged the reprimand from Chris and instead curled her hands together and tried to stop herself from just slouching. Instantly she straightened at Chris' instruction and rose her chin so that she was standing how he wanted her to stand but she didn't think that she would be able to actually do this; it was too hard and restraining for the young witch but in the back of her mind she knew this was needed if she was going to be anywhere near the Byrne family.

Licking her lips, she nodded her head once and closed her eyes where she took a deep breath and held it for a few moment before her eyes slowly opened as she tried imagining that Chris was Charles; though naturally it was hard considering the fact that she had never met the man but than again if she didn't do this she would never be able to face the actual man.

Slowly walking in a straight line, the orphanage had taught her that so she knew that was always a plus. "Hello Uncle." Her voice was soft but sharp, her eyes even more sharper as she stood in front of the desk.
