Here We Go Again (Jan. 22 2018)

17 year old Pureblood Human ☆ her/she

Frankie was rather tired of the holidays. She loved her family but they could drive her absolutely crazy. She was glad school would be starting soon. She had debated running away to Sydney in order to make a real go of the whole fashion thing. She had not runt the plan by anyone- but if anyone understood her desire to want to run it would be Orion. She had not seen much of him, she knew that he had his own family stuff going on. Everyone had their own family stuff going on some bigger than others. She knew her issue with her dads was not nearly as disruptive as just no getting to know his family. They had agreed to meet to get supplies for the next year. It was always easier to shop without her dads they liked to giver her input on everything It drove her crazy. 

She waited for him at the spot they had selected, kicking a bit at the ground as she did so. Looking at her shoes for a minute she looked up and spotted Orion. ”Hey.” She said with a smile. It was a good thing to see such a familiar and friendly face. She walked over to give him a hug. ”Have you lost your mind yet? I’ve lost my mind.” She said with a frown. Letting out a sigh. ”My dads have been insane this break… I love them but jesus.” She said with a shake of her head. ”Any place you want to start?” She asked looking at her list for the year.

Orion was someone that was still adjusting to going to school for a full year. There were breaks here and there and the holiday break was most welcome. He had left the night their classes were up and had returned home to visit his mum. Mia had been thrilled to see him, even going so far as to take time off of her busy schedule to spend time with her son. They had then traveled to Cairns to visit his grandparents. That had been an amazing trip, seeing his cousins and being able to feel comfortable within his own skin again. And seeing his mum again had been icing on the proverbial cake.

But now he was back in Melbourne. His... father had insisted that he spend time with his actual siblings. He hadn't known they existed until a year ago. So he grudgingly made time for them. At least this was the last leg of the school holiday and he was starting to get excited about getting through his final year. Who would have thought that Orion would be excited about anything? "Hey you," he said as she hugged him. He wasn't much of a hugger, but he looped an arm over her narrow shoulders and squeezed regardless. "I am completely family-ed out." That was the understatement of the year. And he couldn't help but grin; trust in Frankie's desire to go shopping. She was such a girl. "How about supplies? he suggested as a place to start. He wasn't all that excited to get shopping for books, but going through the various little bits and bobs used for potions? That he could get behind.

It was true Frankie was pretty girly, however she was rather fond of being able to find whatever she could while shopping. There was something rather nice about the deal hunting. She figured it was girly but she liked being girly. It was something that suited her quite well over time. She smiled at him anyway, and shook her head. ”Me too.” She truly was familied out. They had too many things they expected out of this year. ”At least school starts next week I don’t think I would last too much longer. I have thought about running to Sydney in order to really get the chance I want in fashion… but I also don’t think I could take the guilt that came with it” She said with a small frown 

”Supplies it is.” She said with a smile. ”Books yeah?” She said as they passed the store and she pulled him into it. ”How was your holiday? What did you do?” She asked him with a smile as she looked at the books. ”Did you stick around Victoria or travel?” She let out a small sigh as she passed him the book they would need for Magical Law and Government.

Orion was incredibly grateful that school started next week. In a week. Otherwise he would start feeling like he didn't have enough to do and he'd be begging his mum for another ticket home. She would completely oblige him, too, since she already felt guilty enough at the guilt trip he laid on her a few weeks ago. Why did she feel so compelled to get rid of him? Why did she feel like he needed to go to school at Tallygarunga, of all places? Why didn't she want him around? Oh, yes, all the guilt.

"Yes, books," he said with a wave of his hand. His life could do without books, but some found more value in them than he did. Well, most people would. Books were made to clobber spiders in his opinion. Or books were made as makeshift boogie boards. They did not belong on desks being read and dictated from. "I spent some with my mum and some with my dad." He realized then that nobody at this school really knew about his true parentage. They only assumed. "They aren't together." He paused a moment as he studied the book she'd handed him. "I finally met my sister." Where had that little nugget of truth come from?

Frankie nodded. It was not that uncommon for parents not to be together. Divorce was just as present in the magical community as it was in the muggle one. ”That makes it complicated I’m sure.” She said with a smile. It ws not like she was one to judge. She had two dads and that was not the traditional idea of family. Which was stupid if you asked her. There was just as much love and just as much guilt as any ‘traditional’ family in hers. Besides for her it was normal to have two dads, it was not until school when she was teased about it that she realized it was not something most people had. She shook her head. ”At least you got to see both of them.”She said, though she didn’t know if that was actually a good thing. 

Looking up she was a little surprised he said that. He was one of the more private ones she had met. Not that she minded too much. ”Finally?” She asked him, hoping he might elaborate. Maybe a new baby sister? Frankie had only ever been the only child she wondered sometimes what it may be like to have a sister or a brother.”What was she like?” She asked. Smiling for a moment. "Wanna hand me your list and i can book hunt?"

There was a slight difference with Orion's parents. They had been together for maybe a single evening and then Atlas was gone and Mia was alone. And she hadn't gone to him and told him anything, either. She'd kept the truth to herself. She raised a son in a magical community. She had given him everything he had needed. His father only came around for some reason Orion had yet to figure out. "Well, I only wanted to see mum. Dad I could have done without." Ever since Atlas Karras had inserted himself into Orion's life, it had gone belly-up. From relocation to education to name changes to actual family affairs? Yeah, no thanks. Orion could have done without any of this mess.

It was hard for him to talk about, too. Mia didn't want to talk about Atlas at all and, when she did, it was always with the air that Atlas was an arrogant ass. After meeting the man and getting to know him for himself, Orion was inclined to agree. "Yeah, finally. I didn't know I had one." And he didn't have just one, but two. How crazy was that? "I've always been an only child and I liked that." He had to think about Eudoxia and what she was like to him. "She was... very, very enthusiastic." Probably not the best way to put it, but being a teenage male, it was hard to get those feelings across. Still, he handed the book list over. "I'm not sure how I feel about things yet."

Frankie loved her fathers, she couldn’t imagine not having them in her life. However she thought about the biological family she out there somewhere. It was really no secret she was adopted, for one she had two fathers, and the second she looked like neither of them. She also knew that both of her dads wanted her, otherwise she wouldn’t have been adopted. However she understood the weirdness of that unknown. Did she have siblings out there as well? She looked at him and tilted her head to the side. 

”that sounds intense.” She said with a shrug as she took the list. ”I don’t know if I have any siblings, its always been me and my dads…” she said as if to offer this as some frame of reference. She got the weirdness but then she didn’t really have to confront the unknown. ”I mean It’s not the same you know but its awkward family stuff anyway.” She smiled. Leaning over as she took the list from him. ”I was thinking of just running way, we could always run together.”

Orion still wasn't so sure what was going on half of the time anymore. He was so used to having just him and his mum to look after. He liked the small-town life. He loved being out on the water. It made no sense for him to be anything but that. But here he was, standing in this magical street, looking at magic books for his next year of school. Him! The fact he had siblings out there he hadn't met yet was astounding to him. It wasn't something he'd ever really wanted, but here he was.

"It has been... intense." That really was the best way to describe things. "For seventeen years I thought I was just the only one and now suddenly I've got four big brothers and sisters out there. It's a lot to take in." He gave a little chuckle. "You're the lucky one. You know who your family is." He'd had to confront a lot of truths in his time, but this was certainly the biggest. He picked up the book in front of him and started idly flipping through it. He wasn't a book person. If books weren't required in order to actually take classes, he never would have bothered. "And where exactly are we running off to? I hear Istanbul could be fun. Besides, don't you love just being able to say you've been to Istanbul?"

Intense. She imagined what that may be like… she wouldn’t be able to make sense of it herself. ”Well I know who my dads are.” She said. ”I don’t know if I have other siblings out there, or what my biological parents are like. And I get what you mean, I don’t really want to know if I do, or what they are like…” She said as she looked at the books and grabbed the ones for Magical Law and Government. ”We have a lot of the same classes this year, that will make it easy.” She said with a smile. She liked that they would have classes in common and so she would have a place to sit and someone to talk about the other people in the class. 

”Istanbul could be nice.” She suggested. ”I haven’t planned anything but… I imagine that w could figure it out as we go… eventually someplace where I can break into the fashion world.” She said with a smile. That had been her idea about fleeing. ”We could just move a lot, it would make it harder for people to find us.” Like her dads and his new family. ”Did you at least like your sister… or is she horrible like your father?” She asked with a quizzical look.

Orion hadn't wanted to know who his family was. He was perfectly content living in his bubble. But Atlas had money and Atlas had pull and Orion had still been a minor. His mother, despite her best efforts, had given in. It was safer for him here, closer to his family. It was safer here, in an actual magical community. School was better than just parchment tutoring. Blah blah blah. If Orion hadn't been resentful before, he got that prickly feeling every time he thought on it. 

"Yeah, you're right. I can't fail," he joked. Orion was terrible at book-learning, most of the time. He much preferred practical lessons or using his hands. He seemed to recall things better if he acted them out. This was probably why he did better in some subjects than others. And he knew where his weaknesses were. And he was man enough, now, to admit them. 

Orion scoffed. If his father had found him in the middle of nowhere in Papua New Guinea, the man had the resources to find them anywhere. "I hope you're planning on renting a large boat because I think that's about the only place I cannot be found." He set the book down and wandered over. There were Potions texts here; he actually liked Potions. "I liked her. She was... not like him at all."

She looked up and rolled her eyes. ”I wont let you cheat off me- but I’ll help you study.” She said. She didn’t want to be accused of cheating and she didn’t want Orion to fall behind either. She was pretty good at study groups. She knew how to organize and delegate. She smiled at him and shook her head. ”Just don’t fall asleep in your morning classes and you’ll be fine.” Frankie thought he was very smart given the lack of magical education, at least the lack in a brick and mortar building. He was quite brilliant with other things however… she was amazed at his handle on something once he got it. She smiled at him as she grabbed another text from the list. 

”a boat?” She shrugged. ”Do you know how to sail one because I don’t.” She said as she looked at him. ”You do right?” At least she hoped that he did if they had to rent a boat. She shrugged. ”Well I mean he has control for what? One more year? And then you are out and able to live as you want to.” She tried to see the future in all this… she only hoped he did too. She smiled as he said he liked her. ”That’s good… at least you know it can’t be all bad to have siblings.” She suggested, but then again she had no idea… she had only ever been an only child. 

She thought for a moment. ”what do you think you’ll do after this year?” She asked him. She had know what she would do.. but then she had not been able to talk about what she wanted to do. ”Oh! Orion you would be proud of me. I made a friend all by myself.” She was nto sure how Alex and Orion would get along but Alex was so friendly- she thought maybe they might get along?

Orion could live with that. Ever since he had the notion he was a pest and someone with greedy eyes that liked to look at papers a bit too much, he'd backed off. He did not care for book learning, but the hands-on stuff he got pretty quick. "I appreciate that, Frankie." He gave her a bright grin. It changed the way his face looked. He even dimpled in that wicked way Mia kept warning him about. "I think if I fell asleep in Care of Magical Creatures, I'd be eaten." He said this last part sorrowfully and wiped away an imaginary tear. He had zero intention of falling asleep in class again. 

The first time had been an unqualified disaster. He wasn't sure he'd ever live that fifth year memory down. He was, at first, the new kid. And then he was narcolepsy boy. 

"I can sail a pedal boat. I doubt that would take us anywhere other than across the harbor." The thought was actually a fun one, since he had once island-hopped in a pedal boat with Clover. But that was a long time ago and things had changed in just four short years. Oh, Merlin, how they had changed. 

"I don't think it'll be too bad. I've only met the two. I haven't met the other two yet." He made a face. Four siblings, all half-siblings, all sharing the same father. It was insanity what his life had been turned into the past few years. Or the past week, if meeting a sister and learning more about a brother were anything to live by. 

"What am I doing after this year? I have no bloody idea." Orion hadn't known what he'd do before he'd come to Tallygarunga. He still didn't know. Quidditch star? Fishing boat captain? Maybe he'd be one of those magical shrimp peddlers on the beach. He sure as hell had no clue. Maybe that's what all of this educational stuff was for. "Maybe I'll get lucky and do really well in something this year and find my calling. How about you?"

He clapped his hands together at her pronouncement. "A friend? You? That's extraordinary!" Frankie was by no means a snob, but even Orion had a hard time believing she couldn't make friends easier.

”I can’t let you get left back, we both should be graduating.” She said with a smile. She also wanted to graduate. That was the important thing. Letting her fathers down- that was never the best thing. Well it was something she knew eventually she would do. It was hard not to let people down, she felt that people had these standards and you couldn’t always uphold them. She sighed. ”You probably would be… and I feel like that would be bad for the school. If your dad has as much money as you say…” She teased. She didn’t know much about the whole family dynamic just what he had told her. His father sounded like a mess. 

Frankie wondered about what it must have felt like but she didn’t really know. ”That likely wouldn’t get us very far.” She said. Apparition would be better- or a portkey. She thought for a moment. It was not always the worst ”I mean, it must feel good to be able to share things with them… like how you feel about your father?”she tried to find the good for others. Though she struggled sometimes, like figuring out the good in the fact Alex thought he was dying. 

”I know… he’s actually kind of nice. You might like him too… which is much harder to believe.” She said with a smile. ”Here.” she handed him a book. ”For that class that will kill you if you fall asleep in it again.” ”I will likely take a full time job in the apothecary and go to VMU.” She shrugged. It was not what she wanted to do

Graduating? Already? Orion's mind was blown. Everyone was excited about graduating. Everyone wanted to be out of school and allowed to do their own thing in this great, big world. Orion didn't want to think that far ahead, but graduation was looming like something to be feared. And maybe he was afraid of it. Maybe he was afraid of the future.

Orion gave a half-hearted shrug. Sure, he could bitch to his siblings just how much he disliked their father. But the problem was, they had a relationship with the man. Orion simply shared free oxygen with the man. He had a room at the man's house and he was expected to show up for meal times and at night. He was expected to adhere to house rules, something Orion had never had back home. He was so far a fish out of water, he was swimming upstream without a paddle to save him. "It's hard to. They don't get not knowing who you are when they've all had each other."

"Oh, so you have a boyfriend," he said nonchalantly, now staring at the holographic bookmarks by tilting one up and down. "That's very teenage girl of you." He mimicked yawning as he took the book and flipped through a few pages. Likely not paying attention would be detrimental to his health. Not that he would ever care to admit that. "I'm thinking of growing my hair out, buying a raft and floating the southern ocean." It was one option of the many, many available to him. He had always thought he'd go home and be a shipping captain. That didn't seem like that would happen now. "Maybe some day, something will stick."

Frankie understood that. She had been through it with the whole you are adopted thing. Not that she had not realized early on that her family was not like all the others. It had been a mess when she was coming to terms with it. She imagined that he must be coming to terms with it as well, it was hard to re think your whole sense of self. She looked at him for a moment. ”I get that.” she said. She didn’t offer too much else. ”I mean. Its weird you think something for so long… and then it just changes…” She let out a small laugh for a moment. And then looked up as he said that Alex was her boyfriend. 

”So what if he is?” She asked him as she looked at him with a shrug. Alex was not her boyfriend, they wee friends, she enjoyed the time spent together. ”I happen to be a teenage girl.” She said as she looked over at him with a smile. ”In case you have never noticed. I sometimes do teenage girl things.” she did usually do teenage girl things but often not with Orion. She smiled at him anyway. ”That seems like something you would do. Do you get owls that far out? Or is that the point?” She thought about what floating adrift might feel like, it sounded pretty good. ”Maybe something will you could always work with me at the store.” She said with a smile.
