15. Black Tie Event? I don't think so  
The last two days have been fun, but I don't do suits and fancy clothes.

[[Private, Hackable to Bob]]

Had enough of that business living with Uncle Justin. Dress robes? Black suit? No thanks.


I will get in on that pizza in the great hall though.

[[Harry's Harry this evening. Dressed in threadbare jeans, cowboy boots, novelty t-shirt, and dragon-hide trench coat that looks too big on him. He's wandering aimlessly through the castle, occasionally stopping to smirk at all the uncomfortable guys in formal clothing]]
Current Location: 3rd Floor- Hogwarts
Current Mood: amusedamused
Shirt of the Day: Disaster Area

Who does? Those suits are annoying.

Too true. Which is why I didn't wear one. I had enough of fancy get-togethers back in Chicago.

Hmph. I pity you.

How many did you attend?
Harry Dresden: Anti-gravitystage_wizard on June 13th, 2009 12:14 am (UTC)
When my uncle was alive? Probably one every two weeks, maybe more. He was high up in the Ministry and American wizarding government.

How did you survive?
Harry Dresdenstage_wizard on June 13th, 2009 12:24 am (UTC)
Very carefully. Usually I was only required to be there to greet the guests. After that I could usually get away with hiding out in a corner and pretending the dress robes weren't riding up in uncomfortable places.

Hmph. It must have been annoying. I barely kept my uniform buttoned up, let alone tucked in back at the muggle academy I attended before coming to Hogwarts.
Harry Dresden: Anti-gravitystage_wizard on June 14th, 2009 04:22 am (UTC)
Yeah, it was. I'm just glad that's over. Unless who ever's 'watching' me over the summer is some uppity official. *shudder*

God, I hope it's not Auror Morgan. Haven't gotten any word back on whether or not I'm even going back to Chicago.

Still don't know who's watching you? How old are you?

Ichiru and I turn 17 this summer, so I've decided not to return to our guardians. I can take care of him myself.

Re: Private
Technically I'm almost twenty-seven. Technically. However the Ministry conveniently pointed out to me before I left Chicago that despite my real age, they can't have a fifteen year old boy living by themselves. Too much liability to the Ministry if anyone found out they knew about me.

Somehow I doubt they would consider Bob a legitimate guardian for me.

[Smirk.] So, you're younger than me. Hmph. Make sure not to stay up past your bedtime this summer.

Why not? He's a Professor here isn't he? And he's old enough to be a legitimate guardian.

Re: Private
Hey, watch it bub. Unless you're talking about my real age; in which case I'd have to ask how old you really are.

He's a ghost. Incorporeal. And technically I'm the one who looks after him if the Ministry's letting me keep him this summer. Anyway my apartment's in the muggle world, so it would be a bit strange for a ghost to be looking after a kid.
bloodyrose_zero on June 14th, 2009 06:01 am (UTC)
*raises eyebrow* I thought I answered that already. [A bit suspicious]

Hmph. I see. That wouldn't do well, especially if you're going to live in the muggle world.

Re: Private
You did. *amused* But in this place you never can be too sure. Keep in mind that my real age is 26.

Yeah, especially then. It wouldn't be too bad if I could swing living in my uncle's old manor, but.... I'd rather avoid that.
