pride || fabian & martin

–– “Last year at Hogwarts starts tomorrow, eh, bud? Merlin, but does time fly past – seems like just yesterday you were screaming your lungs out, stopping me, Mia, and Gus from getting a wink of sleep.”

–– “You really were. Almost as loud as Gus, and he about drove me and your mother mad. Phoebe, now – that girl was quiet as the grave. Saving her lungs up until she had something to say, eh? Now she can talk we can’t get that one to shut it.”

    “Like, um… the quiet before the.. the storm”
    He regretted his words almost as soon as he had spoken them - Merlin, was that a bad analogy - and he blushed with embarrassment.
   ”Uh.. forget I said anything”

      Fabian began to laugh at the analogy, 
waving away his son’s objections with a 
casual hand.

–– “No, that’s exactly right. Don’t tell your 
sister, but – ” here he lowered his voice 
conspiratorially. –– “Your mother and I 
sometimes call Phoebe our own private 
hurricane.”

   ”Oh”, he said, hesitantly looking up at his father again. He cleared his throat to rid his voice of the remaining embarrassment, and buried his hands inside his pockets.

               Fabian laughed. “She is that. But enough about 
     Phoebe, lovely though she may be.”


               He fixed Martin with his best attempt at solemnity.
     “Your last year begins tomorrow, Mart – come on, 
     surely you’ve something to say about that.”

 ”Um”
   The boy paused searching frantically in his mind for something he could say that made sense, only to end up with a blank space of absolutely nothing.
   ”Uh… NEWTs are.. um.. how much worse than OWLs?

               “Oh,” Fabian said solemnly, frowning. “They’re
     much worse – they make the O.W.L.s look like primary 
     school spelling tests.”


              He clapped his son on the shoulder. “But don’t you 
     go worrying your little head over that. You got your mum’s
     brains, didn’t you? You’re lucky – I’m sure you’ll breeze 
     through them, instead of bumbling through the lot of them
     like I did.”

               Mia was probably going to kill him, but what was the 
     point of being a father if you couldn’t terrorize your children 
     a little bit?

   ”Oh”
   Martin gulped, as all colour faded from his face. Merlin help him, he was going to fail everything and end up in a strip club somewhere.
   ”And… um… quitting school to live in the woods isn’t an option… right?

          “Absolutely not,” Fabian said, grinning broadly. 
          “Your mother  and  I  didn’t raise you to run off 
          and  live  in  the  woods   –  we  raised  you  to 
          conquer.”



          “But as I said – don’t you worry your little head. 
          With  Amelia’s brains  rattling  around in  there, 
          I’m sure you’ll do just fine.”

  ”I could… uh… conquer the woods, and rule 
the animal kingdom.  That…  that sounds like 
a compromise, right, Dad?”
   ”But.. um.. thanks. I’ll try”
    The question of ‘You won’t hate me if I won’t, 
will you?’  lingered over  his head,  but he tried 
to keep it hidden still.

          “Unless you’re planning to follow after
          your cousin Charlie and work with 
          magical creatures, absolutely not
          You’re not getting out of exams that 
          easily, bud.”


          “You’ll be absolutely fine, Mar. And if
          you’re not? Well. There’s always a 
          place for you in Games and Sports 
          if you fail all your exams. We’ve all
          got brooms for brains anyway, but
          we’d be happy to have you.”

    “I'm going to - um- I'm going to become a 
dragon.  Or…  wait, that didn’t actually make 
any sense. Nevermind”
   ”Is it true you guys play Quidditch at the

                Fabian let forth a hearty chuckle. “See, this is why I 
     love you so much, kiddo – you’re an absolute hoot. You 
     used to say the damnedest things when you were a tot, and
     I’m glad to see you haven’t grown out of that. Some things
     are too good to give up.”


               “We absolutely play Quidditch at the office. You
     remember that time I came home with two black eyes and
     your mother threw an absolute fit? That happened because
     that complete arse Lowell managed to elbow me in the face
     not once, not twice, but three times when he was going for
     the quaffle. Peh – chasers.”

Ah… well… um…”
   The boy couldn’t help but blush at his fathers words. Anybody else 
in   his  place  might  have   taken  offence  to  the  phrasing,   or  the 
implication  that he was not quite normal,  but Martin was not one of 
those people.  To him,  the way  that his father had  praised him only 
meant  that he thought him  to be  interesting,  and despite his initial 
embarrassment, his chest was swelling up.


   ”It sounds like he had something against your face, Dad. Maybe he 
was jealous”
