WAND avodire, serpent scale, 10" PATRONUS raccoon pet no it'll die
nothing he has no skills
a classic love story, really.
rich girl falls for poor boy, leaves her fame and fortune behind and they live happily ever after — unfortunately, that's not how real life works.
because in real life, the girl's parents don't approve. in real life, they need to pay rent, bills, groceries. and when the girl gets pregnant, they're not happy.
and the girl and the child go back to the girls' parents, leaving the boy behind.
you're five when you first reach out to your grandmother's piano, small finger hitting one of the keys. then another, and another.
it sounds terrible, but you love it.
a year later, the violin follows. then the flute, the guitar and the saxophone.
"he has a gift," your grandmother tells your mother, listening to you play the piano. "he's just like you."
it takes you a total of four years at beauxbatons to figure out that school just isn't your thing.
it's not that you can't do it — you could probably do great in your classes if you actually put in the effort.
you just don't care enough to do so.
all you want to do is play music.
you ignore the look your mother give you. you don't need to see it, you know you'll only find disappointment.
your grandparents sit beside her. probably equally disappointed.
you don't really care.
"i'm quitting school," you had told them twenty minutes ago. they haven't said a word since. if they're disagreeing, they're not saying it.
you get up, shove your hands in your pockets and shrug. "just figured you guys needed to know."
the second you turn eighteen years old ( literally, on your birthday ) you pack your bags and leave.
you leave your mom a note and jump on the first train leaving france. you don't care where you'll end up — you're just ready to be somewhere else.
that 'somewhere else' turns out to be britain.
pursuing music turns out to be harder than you thought it would be.
some nights, if you're lucky, you end up with about twenty pounds in your pocket. most nights it's more like five.
you keep going, though.
"i can use your shower, right?" you ask the guy ( what was his name again? ) as you gather your clothes from the floor. you don't wait for a reply, just head into the bathroom and lock the door.
you take a shower, rummage through his stuff and then, after you make him make you breakfast, you're on your way again.
the next evening, you do the same. either with the same person or another one — you don't care, as long as you've got a place to sleep.
when someone asks you why you don't just get yourself a job, you glare at them.
"none of your fucking business," you'll say.
too stubborn to admit that you failed.
you're not sure how you end up in hogsmeade, or why you decide to stay ( because you don't even like the place that much ), but here you are. you find yourself a roommate — or several ( temporary ) ones — and in the end even apply for a job at the music shop.
because being stubborn doesn't buy you dinner and you're really fucking hungry.
