A chat in the Library between Ginny, Hermione, Colin and myself.
Ginny Weasley: *walks into the library*
Colin Creevey: *colin walks in*
Hermione Granger: *looks up from the table she was already at, smiling* Hullo!
Ginny Weasley: Hi Hermione.
Colin Creevey: Hi, Hermione...
Hermione Granger: How are you two doing today?
Colin Creevey: I was wondering if I could get some advice from you
Colin Creevey: actually
Colin Creevey: You being such a pro researcher and all
Hermione Granger: Well, I'll see what I can do for you, Colin.
Hermione Granger: Though I can't promise anything.
Colin Creevey: Okay. Well, I'm looking for someone.
Colin Creevey: But I'm not so sure how to go about doing it...
Ginny Weasley: Have either of you seen Blaise? I thought he might be in here.
Hermione Granger: Would this be the mysterious Mary Jane you spoke of in your journal?
Hermione Granger: Er... No... I haven't seen him.
Colin Creevey: Er...yah.
Colin Creevey: *to Hermione*
Ginny Weasley: All right...
Colin Creevey: Sorry, Ginny
Colin Creevey: No luck here
Ginny Weasley: Thanks... and I haven't seen Mary Jane either.
Hermione Granger: Well, you found her ring, right?
Colin Creevey: Right
Hermione Granger: Well, you could always try putting an ad in the paper. Not the school paper, but the wizarding paper for her to contact you to get it back.
Blaise Zabini: *walks into the room and sees Ginny* Ginny! *smiles and walks over to the group*
Blaise Zabini: Oh... Er... Hi Colin, Hermione.
Ginny Weasley: *smiles* Hi Blaise.
Ginny Weasley: I was just looking for you.
Blaise Zabini: Oh really? *raises an eyebrow* Any particular reason? *teasing*
Colin Creevey: Hmm...
Hermione Granger: *watches them, chuckling slightly*
Ginny Weasley: *smiles*
Colin Creevey: I don't get it though
Colin Creevey: Shouldn't she be in school?
Colin Creevey: She looks our age, and she was at Hogsmeade
Colin Creevey: Oughtn't she be nearby if she's a witch?
Hermione Granger: Maybe she's home schooled.
Colin Creevey: Is that possible?
Hermione Granger: Some people are more comfortable teaching their children then allowing others.
Hermione Granger: Sure, muggles do it all the time.
Hermione Granger: Why should it be any different with magic?
Hermione Granger: As long as the person teaching them is a fully trained witch or wizard there shouldn't be a reason why they wouldn't allow it.
Blaise Zabini: *chuckles* So, Ginny, how was your day?
Colin Creevey: Do you think there's a library listing of wizards?
Hermione Granger: Er... The Ministry might have something like that. But I couldn't honestly tell you.
Ginny Weasley: *sighs lightly* It was a living hell.
Hermione Granger: Maybe something like a muggle phone book.
Blaise Zabini: Oh really? Why?
Blaise Zabini: What happened?
Blaise Zabini: Did someone say something?
Ginny Weasley: I had potions.
Blaise Zabini: Ah.
Blaise Zabini: Was it that horrid?
Ginny Weasley: Three hours with snape...
Blaise Zabini: *laughs* Well yes then, I guess it was.
Colin Creevey: I'm going to browse about the library
Colin Creevey: and ask the librarian for help
Ginny Weasley: *smiles*
Colin Creevey: *scoots off*
Colin Creevey: thanks 'mione!
Hermione Granger: You're welcome.
Ginny Weasley: I didn't expect it to be any worse than it was, though. *shrugs a bit*
Blaise Zabini: He can be a triffle... hard to get along with.
Blaise Zabini: But at least you survived.
Ginny Weasley: A triffle? *smiles*
Hermione Granger: Oh come now, I find Potions to be frightfully fascinating. How can you not enjoy it? Just look past Snape's more... er... hard side and try to see the useful side of Potions. It could be a real life saver some day.
Blaise Zabini: *chuckles and eyes Hermione* Ok, you got me. More than a triffle.
Ginny Weasley: It's not that I hate potions, it's that I hate Snape.
Hermione Granger: Hmm... Yes, well, he can be intolerable at some times.
Blaise Zabini: *laughs*
Ginny Weasley: But I'll put up with him.
Blaise Zabini: That's good. I get the feeling that you don't much have a choice in the matter.
Blaise Zabini: *grins*
Hermione Granger: He's right you know. It might be nice though if we did have a teacher everyone could get along with... Then maybe more people would actually look into some form of career that deals strictly with Potions.
Ginny Weasley: Oh, there's always the option of refusing to work and getting detentions all the time.
Hermione Granger: Ginny!
Hermione Granger: You wouldn't dare! You're a prefect!
Hermione Granger: You have to uphold your status and doing that wouldn't.
Ginny Weasley: What? I'm not saying I would.
Colin Creevey: *wanders back and sighs* I just remembered. Even if there was a listing, how the heck would I find out who she was if I don't even know here name?
Colin Creevey: her*
Hermione Granger: Mmm... Very true.
Colin Creevey: *plops down and looks gloomy*
Colin Creevey: Maybe I will take your advice and post it in the Daily Prophet
Ginny Weasley: You'll find her again....
Hermione Granger: That sounds like your best bet for now.
Colin Creevey: Anyway, what are you all up to?
Hermione Granger: I've been working on my History of Magic homework. It's not due until next week, but I want to get a head start on it.
Blaise Zabini: *grins* I've been aimlessly wandering around. Quite fun really. You should all try it sometime.
Ginny Weasley: Even more goblin rebellions?
Colin Creevey: *looks strangely at Hermione* Isn't it not due until next month?
Hermione Granger: No, no, extra credit. I guess I should have stated that.
Hermione Granger: Sorry.
Colin Creevey: Not a problem
Colin Creevey: *pause*
Colin Creevey: Extra CREDIT?
Colin Creevey: You've already 120% in that class!
Hermione Granger: So?
Hermione Granger: I want to maintain good grades.
Colin Creevey: Er...I suppose
Blaise Zabini: *blinks and shakes head*
Ginny Weasley: Hermione, you're grades are far better than good, you don't need extra credit.
Hermione Granger: Hmph. Your grades can never be good enough. You shouldn't pass up the
chance to improve on them.
Hermione Granger: You should all look into some extra credit assignments to bring up your grades as well.
Colin Creevey: No more time spent on S.P.E.W., eh, 'mione?
Ginny Weasley: *subconciously moves closer to blaise*
Hermione Granger: *clucks tongue disapprovingly* Of course I'm spending time on S.P.E.W., silly. But my studies must come first. Whenever I'm not studying, I'm coming up with new and better ideas for it.
Colin Creevey: Huh? Oh, right
Colin Creevey: *shakes head*
Blaise Zabini: *grins and steps closer to Ginny, reaching out and taking her hand*
Colin Creevey: I'm supposed to be thinking about my O.W.L exams!
Hermione Granger: That's right! You and Ginny both!
Colin Creevey: And all I can think about is Mary Jane!
Colin Creevey: *cries out in frustration*
Hermione Granger: Owls are very important to your futures.
Ginny Weasley: They're not my main concern right now.
Hermione Granger: *glances at Ginny and down to her hand clasped in Blaise's* I can see that.
Blaise Zabini: *grins*
Blaise Zabini: Oi! Colin! Question!
Colin Creevey: Yep
Colin Creevey: go on
Blaise Zabini: If I were looking into purchasing a camera, what would be the best place to get one? And the best model?
Ginny Weasley: *blushes slightly*
Blaise Zabini: *grins*
Colin Creevey: There are a couple of places in Hogsmeade
Colin Creevey: that market cameras
Colin Creevey: There's the...lemme try to remember the name
Colin Creevey: WizardinaSnap
Colin Creevey: shop
Colin Creevey: and...*thinks*...
Colin Creevey: Flashpoof!
Blaise Zabini: And you'd recommend them? I mean... I know that you're always taking pictures...
Blaise Zabini: So I figured you'd have the best authority on the issue...
Colin Creevey: Well, the more expensive ones are usually better, of course
Blaise Zabini: *nods*
Hermione Granger: *looks between the slightly blushing Ginny and the grinning Blaise* Oh....
Ginny Weasley: *sighs* Well, I'm going to go back to the dorms to get some sleep... I need it after today. Bye Hermione, Colin. See you later, Blaise.
Hermione Granger: Bye Ginny.
Colin Creevey: bye!
Blaise Zabini: *pouts* Leaving? So soon? *sighs* Bye.
Ginny Weasley: Don't worry, I'll come find you later. *smiles*
Colin Creevey: Right now, I think the Cannon and Flibber Cam are selling like Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean
Ginny Weasley: *leaves*
Colin Creevey: I actually manufactured my own camera.
Blaise Zabini: Did you? How interesting... I don't think I ever could do that...
Colin Creevey: Or, I sent in an order
Colin Creevey: for them to make it
Blaise Zabini: *nods* You gave them details then on what you wanted? What capabilities and what not?
Colin Creevey: It's called...the...PotterCam
Colin Creevey: *looks sheepish*
Colin Creevey: Yeah.
Blaise Zabini: *nods and ignores the implications of the name* So, it takes good pictures? I mean.. I have seen some of your pictures... They look good. You don't have... problems with it or anything?
Colin Creevey: No, not really. And if there are any problems, it can be fixed in a jiffy.
Hermione Granger: Er... I'll leave you to your camera talk and work on my essay over here. *sits at a table and pulls out a book, starting to work*
Colin Creevey: There are some cameras
Blaise Zabini: *nods* Good, good.
Colin Creevey: specifically designed
Colin Creevey: to capture the best qualities
Colin Creevey: of the thing/person you wish to capture
Blaise Zabini: Well... That wouldn't be a problem.
Colin Creevey: There's one design line that runs toward girlfriends
Blaise Zabini: I'm only really interesting in photographing one person and all her qualities are her best. *grins*
Blaise Zabini: Oh really? And what does it do?
Colin Creevey: I'ts called... Myghtsrl (Make Your Girlfriend Hotter Than She Really Looks)
Colin Creevey: And it pretty much does
Colin Creevey: what its name implies
Blaise Zabini: ... *glares slightly* Are you trying to imply something about Ginny?
Colin Creevey: *shakes head* no, no.
Colin Creevey: Not at all
Colin Creevey: What it means is that it'll bring out the best qualities
Blaise Zabini: Good. Or I'd be angry.
Colin Creevey: Kind of like...er...makeup?
Colin Creevey: Is that what they call it?
Colin Creevey: That stuff girls put on
Blaise Zabini: *shrugs* Not sure.
Hermione Granger: *looks up from her book* Yes, it is called make-up.
Hermione Granger: *goes back to what she was previously doing*
Blaise Zabini: Well, Ginny's perfect the way she is. So I don't think I'll be needing that one.
Colin Creevey: Okay...
Colin Creevey: well, what are you interested in?
Blaise Zabini: *grins* I am looking for something that can capture her when she blushes and make it look as endearing and lovely as it is in real life.
Blaise Zabini: In other words, something that gives very realisitic pictures.
Colin Creevey: Hmm...there's ARAIG
Colin Creevey: (as real as it gets)
Colin Creevey: it's the best at capturing reality
Blaise Zabini: *grins* Well then, that sounds like the one for me!
Colin Creevey: if you can ignore the cheaper version lines
Colin Creevey: that have a slight flub
Colin Creevey: in resolution
Blaise Zabini: Oh no worries. I only want the best.
Colin Creevey: the Araig 2034 is the best
Blaise Zabini: All right then. *grins* Thanks! You've been a great help!
Colin Creevey: Not a problem. *coughs* I had to make up for sparking your bottom
Colin Creevey: *mutters* sorry about that, btw
Blaise Zabini: Ah... Yes... Well... It was probably my own fault.
Blaise Zabini: I'll try not to be so... crass... any more.
Colin Creevey: *sniffs* Well, I may have been slightly obstinate as well
Colin Creevey: I suppose there might be a small, miniscule
Colin Creevey: resemblance
Colin Creevey: between Harry and Mary Jane
Colin Creevey: *looks up at the ceiling*
Colin Creevey: I 'spose it's because I
Blaise Zabini: Well, you had every right to be. I shouldn't have said anything unflattering towards someone you like. And... er... I'm sorry.
Colin Creevey: admire him so much
Blaise Zabini: *nods* Yea... I know you do.
Colin Creevey: I didn't realize you could tell that I admired him
Colin Creevey: I thought I hid it pretty well.
Blaise Zabini: *chuckles lightly* I am very observant.
Colin Creevey: I suppose so.
Colin Creevey: Anyway
Colin Creevey: I just wanted to say
Colin Creevey: that ... you're pretty cool for a Slytherin
Colin Creevey: Most of the Slytherins I meet
Colin Creevey: are rather...
Colin Creevey: mean...
Blaise Zabini: *crinkles nose* Yeah... Like Pansy.
Blaise Zabini: But don't tell her I said that.
Colin Creevey: I don't know Pansy very well
Colin Creevey: But her name is funny
Colin Creevey: *thinks for a second* so are her initials
Blaise Zabini: *snorts* I'd watch it. Don't say anything like that around her.
Blaise Zabini: Ginny and I have had the displeasure of running into her twice together now.
Blaise Zabini: She's not too nice.
Blaise Zabini: Even when we try to be nice.
Colin Creevey: What happened?
Blaise Zabini: *shrugs* We try to be nice, she bitches.
Blaise Zabini: We attempt to stop from bitching back and continue to try to be nice, she continues to b e a bitch.
Blaise Zabini: And I'm getting really mixed signals from her.
Blaise Zabini: Twice now she's sent me a half smile that seemed friendly... Just to turn around and bitch at me.
Colin Creevey: Maybe she likes you
Blaise Zabini: Confusing really.
Blaise Zabini: *crinkles nose* I'd hope not.
Blaise Zabini: I don't think I can take her not so sunny disposition.
Colin Creevey: Didn't Draco go with her to the Yule Ball?
Colin Creevey: Maybe he saw a little somethin' somethin'
Blaise Zabini: *nods* Yeah... And I'm sure he's still regretting it to this day.
Blaise Zabini: ... *shudders* I don't want to think about anything like that.
Colin Creevey: *shrugs* Girls...I can't ever understand them.
Colin Creevey: They're an enigma
Colin Creevey: Except for Hermione
Blaise Zabini: *laughs*
Hermione Granger: I heard that.
Colin Creevey: er...Sorry, 'mione!
Colin Creevey: I meant it as a compliment
Colin Creevey: Because boys can understand you.
Hermione Granger: Uh-huh. Sure. *huffs and goes back to her work*
Colin Creevey: Uh...rock on, S.P.E.W!
Colin Creevey: *turns back to Blaise*
