Being back at Hogwarts was like a breath of fresh air for Charlie. Despite the bad things that had happened here to him in the recent years, Hogwarts was still home for him. He'd spent the holidays at Icarus' home with Icarus and his father. He still hadn't been home since the attack the previous school year, mostly in fear of what he could do to his family. Why was it different between Icarus' family and his own? At least Icarus knew what he was spending his time with. He couldn't just walk into his muggle home and tell his mother and sisters that now he was not only a wizard but also a vampire. That's what was taking the time, to figure out how to talk to his mother, how to talk to his sisters. Instead Icarus had told them that he was fine. A professor had also spoken to his mother, he found out, to relay the same message.
Charlie was beginning to adjust rather well to his change, mostly thanks to Icarus. While some things he still struggled with he still had a wonderful group of friends. Charlie had awoken in the boy's dormitory of the Hufflepuff common room before any of his house mates. He got out of bed and got ready for his day. He combed through his messy dark brown hair, not that it ever did much to actually fix it.
He went out of the Hufflepuff common room and stopped by the kitchens to grab some toast and bacon before making his way up to the fifth floor so he could await for his favorite Ravenclaw, no not Aisling Dolohov, but Icarus Llewellyn, his best friend, his brother. It was why he grabbed breakfast for his friend so he could have some breakfast right after waking. Ever since Charlie had his new found abilities, he was often awake before many others. He had only passed a few other students on his way up towards the entrance of Ravenclaw Tower.
He sat down across from the entrance to the Tower so he'd be sure to see Icarus when he came out of the common room, or Icarus would see him. Like a normal habit he popped open a book, mostly because he expected Icarus out of the common room about the same time that the toast and bacon would be cooling down. It wasn't as if he could go in and wake his friend up, so reading while he was waiting was the way to do it.

For what seemed like a life time now Icarus had been attached to Charlie. They were they best of friends, brothers - they had been through so much over the years. These last two years had been trying for Icarus. Charlie's transformation hadn't been easy on Icarus. Losing his mother and than almost losing his best friend had shaken Icarus, left him broken in ways that didn't heal over night. Of course over time it was becoming easier to accept the situation they were in. Charlie now lived with Icarus and his father and Icarus would visit with Charlie's mother and sisters to make sure they were taken care of while Charlie learned to handle his new found craving.
Life with one vampire was, interesting, life with two - well when Icarus first found himself gaga for the strawberry blonde he had never imagined that their love story would be this...complex, and unorthodox. It was a good thing he wasn't one of those wizards that didn't understand someone could be more than their affliction. Now the teenager just had to learn to adjust to life with the outcasts - guess he had a reason to be glad he had never been the popular sort.
The nightmares happened less these days, some nights he still found himself under the moonlight watching the life drain from his best friend, but he was learning to over come the terrors of his sleep. The night before he had taken no risk and opted for a dreamless sleep potion - their exams were almost there and he needed all the rest he could get before they happened. It was strange to wake up feeling rested and refreshed. Icarus tried not to drag out getting ready for the day - Charlie would no doubt be waiting.
When he exited ravenclaw tower a small smile formed on his lips as his honey brown eyes fell upon his hufflepuff friend - who seemed to have brought along a nice little snack! "Have I told you how much I love you?" There was a goofy grin on Icarus' face as he made his way to his friend embracing the hufflepuff affectionately before making a grab for the food, leave it to Charlie to know that Icarus was the sort who could constantly be happy eating.
"Morning, honestly though, you're the best for grabbing this - you're good on, you know, at least till I can go to London this weekend." It was a touchy subject for many, Icarus donating blood to trade for the supply Charlie needed - but it wasn't as if they could afford to pay for the supply that a new vampire needed. Sure Charlie could still eat food but all vampires needed blood in their diet; so Icarus did what had to be done. It was temporarily after all. There was nothing he wouldn't do for Charlie.
Icarus and Charlie were the best of friends, they were brothers. There had been so much the two had shared since they first met. And through their roughest of times they still remained close. Charlie knew that these last couple years could not have been easy at all for Icarus but they did everything they could to normalize their lives.
As Charlie sat down across from the entrance to the Ravenclaw Tower he thought about how crazy his life had been. He was kind of shocked that here in just a couple months he would be leaving Hogwarts for good. Life was going to get crazy with all of them. Soon they would all be on the job hunt, and while Charlie always knew that he would have Icarus, he wasn’t sure if he would still have all of his friends. That was a little stressful. But not long after the stressful thoughts came across he heard Icarus. He went to stand up and let Icarus grab the toast and bacon. ”You may have said it once or twice,” he replied back with a grin. Charlie knew how to keep Icarus happy, food was a way to his heart.
”Morning, honestly though, you’re the best for grabbing this - you’re good on, you know, at least till I can go to London this weekend.” Charlie looked away when Icarus brought but blood. Icarus had been donating blood to ensure that Charlie got the blood he needed to survive. It wasn’t exactly what Charlie would have preferred happen but it was either that or he got his blood elsewhere.
”I’m okay, also you know I can figure out another way to get blood, you don’t have to do that,” Charlie told him. He’d been thinking about it for a while, he knew Icarus wouldn’t even let him consider what he’d thought of, especially after all these years of him being in school. Charlie had considered leaving school immediately after he found out about him changing. It was Icarus and Xochilt that had kept him going. But at the start of this year the thought crossed his mind once again. He had his O.W.L.s he could still gain a job, not nearly as good as one he hoped he could gain with his N.E.W.T.s. Icarus would have most likely killed Charlie for the thought let alone actually doing it. But it always seemed to come up and he always felt bad that Icarus did what he did to help him out.
He needed a change of subject. ”So… what kind of trouble can we find ourselves into today?” he asked Icarus. They could have a lookout for a better day than what was currently going through Charlie’s mind.

It was good to see the goofy lopsided grin of his brother, even after everything they had been trough at least what they had - it hadn't faltered. It had changed, but only in a way that made it stronger. Icarus felt a bit bad for his - lack of tact and offered a sheepish look to his friend. Icarus was becoming a little cold to the whole vampire thing - it made it easier if he didn't think of it as something shameful, or scary, or monster like....okay he was still working through all of it but he tried to think about it from a logical way (wasn't he a ravenclaw?) and he could be a bit stupid in the way he said things. They'd figure this all out some how.
"I know mate - and once we graduate, we're gonna figure this all out - its just till we get a system." Charlie was going to see his sisters and mother again, even if it drove Icarus crazy helping charlie learn how to control his needs. But he wouldn't say it - there was only so much he could say on the matter. It all still cut Icarus deep. Maybe because he knew what it was like to lose a mother - but Charlie could see his again, he would see his again. "Just...please don't tell Xochit, she is already going to murder me for half the things we do - but doing this, it's my choice, not either of yours. Saves us money too, for maccas...and lets me get out to get maccas. Honestly its like seventy-five percent about the maccas. You know I love maccas."
Icarus hoped he had put Charlie a little at ease about it - he would have apologized for bringing it up but somehow it seemed like that would only make it awkward. "Today - uh well...we got me woke up, and pre-breakfasted - again, love you - so much, so I guess two seventh years such as us would be smart and review one another's homework...seeing as we're talking me, and you, want to see how long before we can get kicked out of the library?"
It was still early for Icarus to be thinking on his feet - and again this was only the first step to breakfast for the lad, which he was quickly eating away at now that he had stopped chatting. It was tricky, knowing Charlie had to keep out of the sun for too long as well - it wasn't like he would actually burst into flames...but it would not be good. Which meant they could write off stealing all the snitches from the quidditch supplies area till after dinner. "Have you got any ideas my humble badger?"
It had been incredibly rough over the last year for their friend group. Charlie though had to make the most of it, so he still smiled through, even on the hardest of days. What good of a Hufflepuff would he be if he didn’t at least try to keep his friends in good spirits?
”I know mate - and once we graduate, we’re gonna figure this all out - it’s just till we get a system.” Charlie was just currently trying to make it through the days without craving anyone. Icarus donating his blood to St. Mungo’s for their program definitely helped, but Charlie hated having to rely on his friend giving his blood so that Charlie could just have a meal. ”Just… please don’t tell Xochit, she is already going to murder me for half the things we do - but doing this, it’s my choice, not either of yours. Saves us money too, for maccas… and lets me get out to get maccas. Honestly it’s like seventy-five percent about the maccas. You know I love maccas.” Charlie just laughed after Icarus went on his tangent about maccas. ”I knew it was a bad idea to introduce you to it,” Charlie told him, ”I also promise not to tell Xochit, she’d murder me for letting you do it in the first place.”
Charlie grinned at Icarus’ idea. Getting kicked out of the library because one of them would crack a joke and then neither would be able to stop laughing. At least they would attempt to get some studying and homework done. ”Have you got any ideas my humble badger?””Obviously we should get you more food, otherwise you may die from starvation,” Charlie swore that Icarus would die if he stopped eating. ”I like the idea of trying to get some work done, that way we can each hold a career when we leave this place, or at least you can.” Vampires still had stigmas in the wizarding world. When you drink the blood of fellow humans to survive, who could blame people for thinking that it’s not okay for you to be around them. Charlie knew it would be difficult to find the right job in the future. It would most likely be even more difficult to hold a job. Charlie had optimism and was planning on trying all the same. It just may take a little longer than he wants it to take.
Is anyone down to try and revitalize this place? Or move over to a new forum and start threading. It's been rough go but I have a working computer again, not one of the ability to fully customize a site at the moment but will very soon, but I am at least
I don't think I am able to manage a whole ass site at the moment, or any writing, cause I am now in Japan and running my own business to live here. But I would love to write with you all again someday when I am more settled~ (I am just not sure when)
I am not crazy about managing another proboards either. But if you guys want to do writing, you can still do it. Screw the templates and stuffs if you are lazy. This will always be a safe space or any of you who wants to write
Paige! I think we're happy sticking here so we don't abandon what we have. I think we're just going to be sticking around here and definitely even if you don't feel like writing come and chat when we're here! Miss you!
