 long live the king, teddy
Quote

Charms class is supposed to start soon, and although it’s one of the subjects Ariella used to enjoy, it’s hard to find anything fun when you’re sitting in a class full of younger kids. Every time she looks at them, at their faces, in class, she just can’t help but feel… bad. Awful.

So she skips.

She heads to the library and sits down at a computer and logs on in such a fluid movement you’d think she’d been doing the same thing every single day for her entire life.

Ariella checks the class syllabus online and takes some notes in a notebook about what she would be studying today, and decides which of them she actually needs to review (it’s her second year doing these subjects at this level - everything is a review). Charms? Too easy. Herbology? Binged it yesterday. Care of Magical Creatures? Okay, that’s fun, and a good warm up. Ariella opens a browser, enters the address to a certain video site, and plugs her headphones in - now she’s all ready to learn for the day!

It only takes her five minutes before she’s opened a completely unrelated video in another tab and another two before she starts watching it.

After all, talking lions are kind of related to the subject she’s revising..?

this time, he's sure he can convince ariella to go to charma.

he knows she doesn't particularly want to go to her classes but that doesn't stop teddy from trying. like right now, he knows she should be preparing to head to charms which they have in about five minutes but he sees her at the library, in front of a computer. somehow he doubts she's looking at anything related to the cousework for charms.

teddy strides closer to her, taps her on the shoulder. 'we have charms in five minutes,' he reminds his friend before giving her a questioning look. he catches a glimpse of the video (josie's taught him well when it comes to these muggle things) she's watching. all he sees are animated lions in the african wilderness and - what?

'what are you watching? this doesn't look like charms.'

Oh no.

Her heart.

Ariella’s seen that pained look before. It’s familiar. This video has a lot more drama than she bargained for and the tension builds up so well that Ariella yelps and jumps out of her chair with fright when someone taps her shoulder.

Joder! Ariella hisses because, after all, this is a library. “Teddy! Don’t sneak up on me like that!”

She huffs, sits back down and finds her earphones which popped out when she jumped (thankfully the other end stayed plugged into the computer). “I already learned how to cast stupefy last year, so I don’t need to go to Charms today,” she says as a way of justifying why she’s here in the library and not in the classroom with everyone else. “I decided to revise for Care of Magical Creatures,” she further explains, her eyes shifting back to the computer screen. “I’m just having a break right now.”

he sinks into the chair beside her, amused at the way she hisses in surprise. 'wow - you're really into this, huh?' teddy remarks, still peering over her shoulder to get a glimpse of whatever it is that she's watching.

as she sits back down, ready to resume her 'break', which teddy is already sure has lasted longer than however longer she studied for, if she studied at all. as expected, she declines going to charms with the excuse of having already done it once which teddy can only sigh at. 'it's not like practicing stupefy would hurt you, though,' he points out but even he knows that was a weak attempt to convince her.

she's going to turn him down again.

he cranes his neck forward to get a better look at the lions. whatever it is, it looks entertaining enough albeit a little childish. 'what are you even watching anyway?'

Ariella rolls her eyes when Teddy sighs at her reasoning, but is able to hold herself back from making fun of the counter-reasoning she must have heard, like, what - a million times by now.

Teddy’s not wrong - Ariella is about to tell him to go hurry off to Professor Severin’s class before the ol’ coot realises one of the few “good Gryffindors” is missing - but then Teddy asks her a question she’s compelled to answer. Very compelled.

Her demeanor changes as she suddenly becomes the teacher - because, really, this is so much more interesting than stupedy. “Right, so,” Ariella begins, scooting her chair aside so there’s room for Teddy to sit (stand?) more in front of the screen. “Actually, I don’t even really know. I just followed a few links about lions, and now this poor baby -” she points a finger at the screen, then realises the characters are a bit far away. So Ariella quickly says, “Just a moment,” and pulls the video back to somewhere in the beginning where there’s a closer view of the poor baby. Before the word came crashing down around him, rendering him a poor baby.

“So this kid thinks he’s gonna get a surprise from his father. And, I dunno, his dad doesn’t give him enough presents or something since he’s really excited about this. But then - you know what? Here. Ariella holds out one half of the earphone for Teddy to take. “Just watch it.”

although ariella declines his invitation to attend charms (he knew it'd happen), she does light up at the prospect of informing him about whatever she's watching. and teddy has to admit, a few seconds of the lions is enough to make him curious as well.

he pulls a chair closer to hers and drops into it, eyes fixed on the screen as ariella begins her explanation which only confuses him further. he accepts the earphone and fixes his eyes on the video. 'wait ... ' as a stampede begins, teddy frowns, feeling a little more worried than he thinks he should be about a cartoon. 'what's happening? is - er - what's the poor baby's name? is he going to die?'

Aha! A smug grin forms on Ariella’s face the second she knows she’s caught Teddy with the same bait that the website’s sidebar had used to suck her in. It sure was nice to not be the only one suckered in.

Ariella nudges Teddy lightly with her elbow and holds out the earphone more pointedly. Just watch it, she repeats. “It’s just easier this way.”

She’s ready to press play when he is.

of course, ariella doesn't give anything away to him and presses the earphone bud into his hand. teddy sighs -- 'okay, but at least, what's the poor baby's name?'

he knows better than to ask this time if the lion cub is going to die. ariella will only tell him to watch and stop asking so many questions. teddy positions the earphone in his ear, then nods to his friend to press play.

the clock ticks just past twelve. teddy doesn't realise he's about to be late for charms.

Yeah, Charms class has started, but it's not like anything fun or interesting is going to happen over there. Clearly animated animal Shakespeare is the way to go.

Ariella shrugs at Teddy's question and says, "I think it's Simba." before pressing the play button.

And so it begins. Aruella smiles at the little ion trying to roar at an indifferent lizard and, despite knowing what's coming, her expression mirrors Simba as they both hear the stampede coming. The colour drains from her face a little.

Ariella's so transfixed by the scene playing she doesn't say anything, not even a gasp. Not until the scene ends with a death. Hell, a murder even.

as soon as ariella presses play, a bad feeling, a knot of anxiety settles into his stomach. she mentions the poor baby is called simba and teddy files the information away in his mind, eyes fixed to the screen.

the stampede. the video reaches the point where the stampede occurs and teddy remembers why he feels so anxious about the video. the animals trample through the grasslands, one of the older lions attempts to protect simba and then --

'oh no ... ' teddy breathes, lips curling in apprehension as another one of the older lions tries to hold on to the saviour lion from before. and with a sinister long live the king, pushes him to his own death. 'he's dead. oh my god, he's dead. that's simba's dad -- oh god simba--'

teddy's rambling, not sure what to say, not sure if his eyes are prickling with tears or not. he blinks furiously, then thinks, animated lions should not make him feel this way. 'what even, ari, i was not prepared for this ... '
