WE ALL NEED SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON
they’re baking today, on gabriela’s insistence because it’s the weekend and she wants to do something fun (something fun that doesn’t include one of kennedy’s many troublemaking schemes). it doesn’t take much to convince trisha and pascale, she’s seen them both enough at the common room and she knows pascale is in wizard baking as well. standing with a recipe book propped in front of her and an apron pulled taut around her tiny frame, gabriela turns to face her friends.

‘are you guys okay with making cupcakes?’ she asks as she looks at the recipe she’s opened the book to—it’s for chocolate-chip cupcakes. ‘i—i think we have the ingredients for cookies too, maybe, if you want to do that instead … ’ gabriela flips through the book to see if she can find it before turning to the younger students to gauge their reactions.

‘well—anyway—i’ll get some of the things set up,’ she volunteers before beginning her hunt for the milk and eggs. there are already a few mixing bowls on the table and the spoons should be nearby. they’ve been learning magical techniques to enhance their baking in baking club but gabriela wants to do this muggle-style, the way she always did it at home with her mother.

‘we need vanilla extract though,’ she pauses. ‘i have no idea where they keep that.’

Pascale moves to grab bowls from the cupboards and flour from under the counter. "I'm fine with either!" he chirps, setting down the bowls. "Or maybe we could make both?"

He loves baking, and he's glad to help Gabi and Trish make whatever they please. At least, he's glad for some respite from having a partner who couldn't bake. That....was a disaster.

Pascale sees Gabi move to grab other ingredients and upon asking for the vanilla, he plucks the extract from a nearby shelf. "Here it is," he says, placing it beside the bowls. His eyes scan the ingredients written in the book. "Um, I'll look for the chocolate chips!"

When Trisha woke up today she had no idea that a senior (a senior by one year is still a senior and therefore still has some aura of older coolness) would invite her to bake some muffins. The invitation was a complete surprise, but it’s a welcome one - heck, it’s more than welcome, and Trisha is more than grateful - so grateful that she doesn’t even think to point out that she’s made muffins more than anything else.

Besides, when it’s suggested that they make both cookies and chocolate, Trisha’s eyes widen as if it’s the best idea she’s ever heard and agrees. “Both?! Both is good.”

Gabriela, the senior, starts setting things up and asks for vanilla essence while Pascale, a first year, finds it immediately and starts to look for chocolate chips. Which leaves Trisha to…

To… To do what? she wonders, briefly, a little lost without any orders to follow. But the other two are doing fine without orders, so she resolves to do the same.

It only takes a short look at the current set-up for Trisha to realise what small-but-important ingredients are missing. Well, she’s not sure if they’re written in the recipe book or not, but is happy to have an excuse to look through the cupboards and look busy like the other two. As she begins to look for the sugar and salt, Trisha remembers something she heard one of the older students in the Wizard Baking Club mention and she says,

“I heard that the longer you mix the ingredients, the drier the muffins are when they’re cooked… You two know if it’s true or not?”



“Oh!” Trisha suddenly jumps up and runs over to an oven to set it up for pre-heating.

WE ALL NEED SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON
'okay! let's make them both,' she nods, glad to not have to choose between her two favourite baked treats. even if it takes longer, it will be worth it, she tells herself before busying herself with the search for the milk and eggs.

to gabriela's relief, this is a team that works smoothly - they don't order each other around and she feels at ease with them, as if she doesn't have to worry about making a fool of herself with them. it helps even more that everyone has decided to find ingredients on their own, gabriela is no good with delegating orders anyway. she places the ingredients she's found on the counter in the middle, beside the mixing bowls and spoons and the trays lined with parchment paper.

noticing the vanilla extract beside the utensils, she shoots a thankful smile to pascale and before she can pick out the last ingredient on her list - the brown sugar so the cookies are chewy - she catches trisha's question. 'oh ... ' gabriela mulls over it. 'i think it makes sense that they would get tougher,' she nods. her mother used to take over the mixing so gabriela wouldn't have a chance to overmix the batter. 'my mother says that happens, too.'

with everything set up and ready to go, gabriela finds a large enough mixing bowl. she sees trisha pre-heating the oven - can't believe they almost missed that - and gives the younger girl a look of relief. 'thanks, trish! it would have been awful if we forgot to heat the oven up ... ' she stretches her arms out, hands her friends wooden mixing spoons before picking one up herself. 'should we start with the cookie dough?'

Pascale returns in time to hear Trisha's question, but he has no answer for her. His interest in baking isn't shared by anyone in his family, and much of what he's learned is self-taught or through the baking club. He hasn't the faintest clue, and so, after an apologetic shrug, he lets Gabi answer Trisha.

Pascale watches as Trisha goes to preheat the oven. Nods along with Gabi's thanks, because he'd forgotten as well. He takes a wooden spoon from Gabi and puts up a hand. "Um, I can mix, if you'd like," he says, waving the spoon in small circles.

“Uh… no problem.” Trisha somehow manages to respond despite the double-whammy of both being thanked and being called a nickname (even if it is just her name with one letter dropped). She blushes a little and takes a spoon from Gabi’s hand. Thankfully, as Trisha sees it, Pascale out-adorables her with his spoon waving, so she isn’t too embarrassed.

“We all have spoons,” Trisha says, starting her suggestion by pointing out the obvious. “Should I try and find some more mixing bowls?” She pointedly looks over at the ingredients even though she can’t completely tell if there’s enough there or not for three batches. “I’m sure no one will mind if we make even more cookies.”

gabriela looks between her friends, pascale waves his spoon around and offers to mix to which trisha suggests that each of them make a batch.

'alright, so ... ' a frown pinches gabriela's forehead. 'we're each making a batch of cookies? that sounds good to me.' she nods as she asks the other two. gabriela passes her mixing bowl to pascale before finding two more for herself and trisha.

'let's get started!' she grins, finally smiling without a care in the world as she anticipates the smell of freshly-baked cookies. she leans over to read the recipe in the cookbook. 'it says here to combine the flour and baking soda, and then cream the butter and the white and brown sugar. and then we mix the two and add chocolate chips.'

gabriela reaches for the flour and the small tin of baking soda beside it.

Pascale doesn't mind if all three of them make a batch of cookies. He's more worried about where they're going to keep them. How much did one batch make, anyway? A dozen? Two dozen? He hasn't looked at the recipe yet...

But he goes along with it and nods his 'okay'. Pascale waits until Gabi is done before taking another portion of flour and sugar, then hands it to Trisha. He sticks his spoon in, mixing the dry ingredients with ease.

Gabi hands Trisha a mixing bowl and, oddly enough, all Trisha can think is how nice it is that someone took such initiative…

Alright, they’re starting now, and as soon as Trisha realises that Gabi’s reading the instructions she starts listening more carefully. Flour and baking soda - right, got it. Then the butter and the sugars - in another bowl, yeah?

Trisha takes the flour and sugar from Pascale, never once questioning or caring for the order that’s been created. Everything’s moving smoothly, so everything’s fine. She takes her share of ingredients, adds them to a bowl, then puts them down on a counter beside her before mixing.

It’s a bit quiet, but Trisha doesn’t feel a need to break the silence. It’s kind of nice, actually.

the butter and sugars cream together neatly into an airy paste. gabriela sifts the dry ingredients into the mixture, slowly combines everything into a thick dough. the sweet scent permeates the air and her mouth waters as she adds a cup of chocolate chips into the dough.

just as she rests the wooden spoon against the side of the bowl, her phone buzzes. gabriela glances at it, sees a few messages from marko and dusts her hands clean. 'i'll be right back,' she announces to trisha and pascale before reaching for her phone and darting out of he kitchen.

With the kitchens being so close to the Hufflepuff dorms, Zoey often pops in for a snack before heading out. She stumbles upon a trio of younger years crowded by the countertops. Baking ingredients line the counters; a large bowl is the centerpiece.

"Hiiii," Zoey singsongs, fingers wiggling in greeting. She winks at Pascale, then saunters toward the bowl. She goes onto her tiptoes to peer in. "Sorry to barge in. This looks amazing!"

She spins to beam at the younger Hufflepuffs.

Pascale follows the recipe to the letter, though the mixing, despite his earlier offer to do it, is actually tricky for him. He's not exactly strong, and the bowl's big, and the spoon gets stuck...

He gives Gabi a nod when she says she'll be back, and he keeps mixing. It's interrupted by a voice that greets them, and he sees a blonde-haired girl (she looks familiar) peering down at him and his bowl of mixed goods.

Her compliment has Pascale practically beaming. "Thank you!" he gushes. "I hope it'll taste as good as it looks."

It's so peaceful concentrating on mixing the batter that Trisha barely notices when Gabi speaks and dips out for a moment. She does notice when an older student - one of the cool-looking, fashionable ones - walks in and compliments their work.

"Y-yeah, thanks," Trisha manages to courteously say before she freezes upon realising something. She looks down at Zoey's feet, sees the older girl is tiptoeing. Slowly she looks back up at where the older girl's eyes are and then, suddenly, turns back to her bowl and hunches over it as she tries not to think about it.

The only thing that matters - that should matter - is the cookie dough.

when she returns, there's another occupant. gabriela recognises the familiar blonde immediately, it's kennedy's sister.

'zoey!' gabriela exclaims, clearly surprised as she walks back into the kitchen. from the looks of it, it seems pascale and trisha are still in the process of mixing their dough whilst zoey observes one of the bowls closely. gabriela gives her a quizzical look.

'we're making cookies,' gabriela explains, returning to her spot beside trisha. 'you should try some when we're done!' she offers the older girl, then looks at her friends -- hopes they'll agree -- it's only one or two, it shouldn't be a big, deal right?

'what are you doing here though?' gabriela's eyes flicker to zoey, then return to her dough which she starts scooping onto a lined baking tray. neat little balls, just as her mother would do.

Zoey grins at Pascale, then at Trisha.

"I'm sure they'll be amazing," she assures. She glances at the bowl over her shoulder, but her attention is grabbed by someone exclaiming her name.

"Gabi!" she enthuses, recognizing the girl immediately as one of Kennedy's friends.

She hovers close to the counter, watching Gabi roll the dough into little balls. "Oh, just looking for a snack." She smiles at all three of the Hufflepuffs. "I really don't mean to bug you guys."

She makes her move when she thinks none of them are looking, scooping dough into her palm with her fingers. She slips sideways, wandering toward the rest of the kitchen. "I'll just pick something else up, no prob!"

Hidden by a shelf, she nibbles on her dough. Sooo good!
