It's been yonks since you and that saucy wife of yours've had a proper afternoon graced with my company. How abouts we fix that? Seeing as how I'm in Blighty at the mo and knowing how much you treasure our moments together, I reckoned you and the Mrs'd be thrilled to take tea with Padma and me tomorrow, if you've it open. Or we can leave the women to the tea and I could treat you to a pint at any pub of your choosing if you'd rather. The world'll be right so long as I've a chance to give Serena a kiss.

What do you say? You miss me like crazy, I know you do.

Nah, sorry mate, but Ol' Filly loves me the way I am. No brown-nosing necessary here, true blue.

You wanting to come to tea as well? Apologies to say Filly won't be nearly as excited to see your mug as he will be mine, but if you can promise not throw a wobbly over it, I'm cert I could share my esteemed and dashingly handsome mentor with you.

I'd be chuffed to come, sure. Won't say no to seeing my best mate twice in one visit to blighty. What time?

Aw shucks, Terry. You've to watch yourself; you're likely to make me blush a shade of red that'd put Padma to shame. Tea's at 16.00 so half one? That should give us plenty of time to drink half the stock at the Leaky beforehand and make us twice as entertaining at tea.

Michael is giving me a lecture on BEHAVING, and if it was ANYONE else but HIM, you know I'd ignore him but because he's PADMA'S boyfriend or fiance or whatever they're calling it today, we should probably try to be professional. I know it won't be hard for US, but you know Michael!! He will pick on us for any little thing just because he can! And I don't want to get Padma mad at me, so we HAVE to at least try to -

OH I DON'T KNOW! SERENA SKYE, LAVENDER!!!!

I. KNOW. !!!! And she's writing another novel! I wonder if it has anything to do with Kian and Loris and Desdemona and Dyfed and ooo, wouldn't it be wonderful if it did and wouldn't it be AMAZING if she shared some of the plot with us?? We would be the ENVY of a generation of readers EVERYWHERE!!


UGH, he's doing the SAME thing to me but since he did ask Professor Flitwick and SERENA SKYE to tea and WE'RE INVITED, I suppose we can tolerate him for one afternoon. Can you believe he even suggested that SERENA SKYE would request a restraining order AGAINST us?? As if we're scary stalker people!

What are you wearing? I was thinking about my cute pink daisy sundress since it epitomises summer romance but since this is a VERY IMPORTANT MOMENT that we will remember for the rest of our lives, do you think I should wear something more formal?
From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
Right. Like I told your other half, my motivations are purely selfish. So do us all a favour and don't go drooling, touching, suffocating or anything else that could end with Serena requesting a restraining order against the pair of you. I like these people and don't want to see them mentally scared or anything.

It's all your fault, you know, coercing me into mindless flirting as you were.

You're welcome. Hopefully, everything will work out to our mutual advantage. I'd love to see Professor Flitwick, too.

Thank you SO MUCH, Padma! We'll pay you back for your generosity, we will!

Perhpas she might divulge some spoilers.

I've an unrelated question for you- out of curiosity, is the friend you're trying to help a witch or a wizard?

I'm sorry, Parvati, I was being- callous.

Mike and I made a bet, and I was having fun with it. I hope Serena Skye is most helpful.

Oh- it's just silly, really. I thought we were betting on whether or not the person you want to help is a witch or a wizard. As for the terms, Mike's condition was that the winner would have 36 hours in which to claim a prize. I figured I might design a date with a scavenger hunt theme.

Oh no- I misunderstood him; he meant something more cynical. I'm not going to go through with it now; I'll gladly let him "win." Usually, that's mutually beneficial between the two of us as it is.

Serena may be unable to come, it seems, as she's working furiously on her newest novel.

Your father and I have plans for a bit of blackjack in the morning if you're a mind for it, but after that, I'd be thrilled to check out the status of your nose, as Mr Boot has pointed out.

From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
Did you tell her I'll be there? Reckon if she knew, she wouldn't think twice about taking a well-deserved break.


I've a mind and more, yeah, but since when'd you and my dad start making plans for Sunday morning blackjack?

Terry's a slight addled, sir. Thought you'd've been aware of as much by now.

Date: 2008-06-22 06:44 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] charms-flitwick.livejournal.com
I did, of course, but she doesn't want to take away from my enjoyment of your visit. She's a selfless person.

Since we started discussing your future and ability. And he's a good hand at poker.

How long was I your Head of House? Some things didn't pass my attention, Mike.

Date: 2008-06-22 06:54 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
No offence, Filly, but what about the enjoyment of my visit?

He should be seeing as how I taught him everything he knows. This something you do regularly?

Yeah? Any other things that didn't make it past you that you'd like to share?

Date: 2008-06-22 07:25 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] charms-flitwick.livejournal.com
I'm wounded, but Serena is pleased with that response, so I'll let you meet on your own while I drown my sorrows in another pint.

That's not how I heard it! It's something we do, yes. Strange that your father and I should get on, is it?


Do you have any suggestions? I wouldn't want to put you, Terry, or Tony in any awkward positions.

Date: 2008-06-22 07:57 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/mike_corner_/
Can't let you do that now, can we? Padma'll be heartbroken if you're not around to try her cucumber mint sandwiches.

He's getting on in his years; it's only natural he'd forget the finer details.

No, not at all. Why would it? Alright, it might a slight. He's mentioned speaking with you on occasion but he's never said anything about poker or blackjack or Gentlemen's Clubs.


We're in lucky. Awkward's Terry's and Tony's middle name.

I suppose not, for Ms Patil's sake. She's always been a nice young lady and one I wouldn't want to disappoint.

Getting on? And what is it you say of me then?


We conspired in your removal from Britain so that our friendship could continue without interruption. I'm sorry to confirm these details to you but it's in the best interest of your ego.


And what is your second name?

She's the wool over your eyes there, doesn't she?

You mean to say you're older than twenty-five? Fuck, I'd've never guessed.


Morelike you both had to fill the void my departure left in your lives so you both took up with the best next thing. It's alright. I reckon I can understand.


Extraordinary, of course.

Look, I'm doing this for me, not for you or Brown. Just remember that, yeah? I genuinely like these people and so whatever the ruddy reason is that has you thinking you and Brown're needing to badger Serena, I'd like for the pair've you to control your excitable selves and not scare her off the second she's through the door.
