I tried to jump out a window onto a broom and got caught. I was informed that was not okay, and I don't really understand why. Like I can't play Quidditch for for the team, so why not let me do other things on the broom? I like flying. Do you really think I'll be able to make the team?
Well how about like...a guest speaker or something? You know stuff. I love uncle Rom and uncle Sirius but they're not you. They're also not as good as Uncle Caspian.

Rory had gone to Quidditch practice, so natrually Duke had followed him there. At first the young werewolf was sure that his older brother, Leo, was on the team too. Then he could convince them to let him play too. But as he found out, Leo wasn't on the pitch. Or if he was, Duke had somehow missed him. It didn't matter too much one way or another. Instead Duke was watching from the ground as Rory looked awesome in the air.
Once practice was over, Duke didn't want to leave though. "Hey Rory! Will you help me out for flying class?" Duke doubted he'd need help. But he wanted time with Rory. And there was always a girl with him in the rest of the school. Maybe he needed to go yell at Sirius for not teaching Rory that girls were gross. Because they were, right?

Duke and his best friend had been seperated. They were so close and yet so far away. There was an evil hat determined to ruin lives and people. Sure, Duke was still with his brother but Xavier had been cast aside. There was the fact that Duke wasn't smart enough to be in the Ravenclaw house, but he didn't want to focus on that. He wanted to focus on the fact that they were separated.
Crossing his legs, he plopped down right outside the enterance to the Ravenclaw room. The door thingy had been asking riddles and Duke had zero idea how to answer them. And yelling "find Xavier" had done nothing. He couldn't leave without his best friend though. Their first year together was supposed to be awesoms. Instead it was starting off sad.
tag: @xavier notes: please pretend this thread is right outside the Ravenclaw enterance. Like...There's the portrait that lets them in and Duke's sitting right there.

There had been a fire in the first year Gryffindor room. Honestly Duke had no idea how it happened. He obviously couldn't be blamed for it. One minute he had been studying charms and flicking his wand; the next there was a fire. But the young lion didn't panic. Instead he managed to put it out and then shove the burned sheets in a bag.
The fire had been on his dorm mate's bed. Hopefully the other male wouldn't hold it against him. Magic was just so cool he wanted to play with it all of the time. There had to be a way he could get better with it.

Duke's older brother was a prefect. Now that Duke was sorted and around his older brother more, he wanted to make sure things worked out. So he made his own prefect badge out of some paper and glue. And now, he wasn't too worried about anything else. His hand reached out and looped his hand through his older brother's. He was going on rounds too. "Look! I'm a prefect too!" He grinned at the other male easily. See how nice and simply things were? It was going to be great.
Following Leo on rounds, he couldn't help but beam at the older male. See how awesome things were? Things were going great. "So what all are we doing today?" It was a very good question. Duke had spent his first night at Hogwarts, wandering all around and meeting the other Gryffindors. But he still knew that his favorite was, without a doubt, his older brother. It'd been hard not wandering into Leo's dorm room when he realized he was too excited to sleep.
"I wanna see all of the castle and learn it's secrets." Like where was he supposed to take his pet pig for walks?

Good news! I have been accepted as a wizard! I'm officially sorted as a Gryffindor. Which means now on the full moon I turn into a wolf and on the new moon, I'll get to turn into a lion. Double the power double the fun. It'll be interesting. They said I couldn't join the Quidditch team until I'm at least a second year though, so that's kind of lame.
I miss you. Rory's dad has a job here. Can't you take his job and then we can hang out more?

If Duke was smarter, he'd probably realize his favorite uncle was more or less just telling him what he wanted to hear. "I'm gonna make you proud. And after I graduate, I'll be your best super hero spy." Duke was not smart, but he generallymeant very very well. He was just happy that his uncle had come to the wilds of Canada to save him.
"Why not? They're not that strong." Duke was totally stronger then a moose. Maybe later he'd go pick a fight with a moose just to prove he could totally win. It'd be impossible for the creature to beat him.

Honestly, Duke was pretty sure his dad was going to let him keep the pig. After all, it was Duke's favorite thing in the whole wide world. "A place." To say where he got the pig from would be a wild guess at best. Because honestly, he had zero idea. The pig had more or less just shown up in his life and he planned on keeping it.
If he could get dad on board.
But he looked at the pig and then back at his dad. "If it makes you feel better, we can call him a dog." He stated with a shrug. Maybe if he just acted like he was allowed to keep it, his dad wouldn't take it away. "I can do like...obedience classes with it, like a dog." And his hnd went to the top of the pig'shead. He'd be the coolest kid at Hogwarts with a pet pig.

"I can't lose you too." He was barely holding on with the lack of his mother. Not having her hurt a whole lot. Losing one of his uncles would probably kill him. Caspian and Stranger Danger were his favorite two. He was pretty sure that he'd lose everything. "What if you just stay here? I'll sleep on the couch." He'd give up his bed if Stranger Danger would stay.

Duke was trying to think about this very carefully. When it came to people, he really didn't think Caspian would ever lie to him. When it came to all people, Caspian was his favorite uncle. "Are you sure?" Because he was pretty sure he hadn't gotten any bigger in a few years. Ever since becoming a werewolf, he thought he'd been the same. It was just really weird, but he was trying to think about things.
"All eight years?" He whined. Did he really have eight years before he could work with Caspian? "What if I just like come over summers and start working on it then?" After all, he could slowly learn things. "Then when I graduate, I'll have a step up." Because he could then just go ahead and become a full fledged super hero, since that was the only thing that mattered.
That seemed false. Maybe Caspian needed to know more things about werewolves. "I'm always a werewolf." He argued.

Duke was going to miss Rory. He was going to miss the fact that Rory was one of the best people at Hogwarts. "You can't ignore your dad. And what if there's a reason mom left and it's the same reason your dad won't let you come over? What if I'm just death in a human form?" After all, he wouldn't kill anyone with magic. But maybe he'd been the reason his mom left. Something like he caused her death?
It was one of the only things that made sense to him.
Post by DUKE ALEXANDER FILIBUSTER on Apr 11, 2017 17:50:30 GMT -6
If you had asked Duke a year ago who he liked better, he would have said momma. But now it was different because now Uncle Stranger Danger was the one that stayed. Stranger Danger was the one who helped him. "But what if you don't come back?" He was just going to hold onto Uncle Stranger Danger forever. "I don't wanna lose you." He added without too much trouble at all.

"No. 'Cuz Xave is a vampire, and he's getting bigger and I'm not." This was not the case, but it felt like it was. Duke was almost positive that Xavier was bigger then him now. Also it'd be weird if he was stuck as a little kid forever. Duke wanted to stay a kid forever too, if Xave did. He didn't want Xave to get lonely. "That's supposed to be the best part about being a werewolf. Immortality."
Awhile? "I'll be in Hogwarts next year. That's old enough to come and work for you." Because obviously a first year at Hogwarts could totally become an Auror. Everyone knew that. Also this was family. Caspian was totally his uncle and was his favorite uncle. "And you have to help me become a super hero like you." Because that's what Caspian was. A perfect super hero. Cape and all.
Crime in Canada? It was like a joke. "No there's not. The only bad things in Canada are large mooses. And I'm a werewolf. I can beat a moose in a fight." Werewolf vs moose. It would be the fight of the century.

Duke pressed his head closer to Uncle Stranger Danger's chest. It was like he was trying to memorize the way the older male felt, because he knew that Stranger Danger would be the next to leave. "Mom left me." This was the thing he couldn't believe. He had no mothers. He'd never really had a mother. He wanted one and he thought he had one. But she was gone. Which possibly meant she wanted to have a real kid and not some broken replacement.
He was pretty much stuck in a loop, given that he refused to believe she was gone for any reason other then him. "Everyone leaves." Maybe if he just clung to Stranger Danger, it'd be impossible for him to leave too.
