you give me something to think about (chapter 8)
Read on ao3.
Summary: Trini’s never been good at making friends, which only makes
being stuck in the same school for seven years even more miserable. But
when she finally does meet someone nice, she ends up with a whole lot
more than she bargained for.
It’s gonna be one hell of a year.
The Slowburn Hogwarts AU that no one asked for.
Note: I totally forgot to make a post for chapter 7, ahaha… it’s too late to do that now, i guess. oh well.
The whole quidditch team is sprawled out on the grass in various states of exhaustion. There’s definitely leaves and grass in her hair, but Trini can’t find enough energy in herself to care. She groans, lifting her head and propping herself up on her non-aching arm
“Alright, quick break, and then we’ll run it again,” Jen calls out, despite the complaints of the whole team. Ernie gingerly makes their way to her side.
“Jenny,” they begin, and the captain raises her eyebrow at them. “You know I’m all for perfectionism, but I think in this case, we’re hardly likely to win the Cup if our team dies first.”
Jen surveys the group of half-dead teens laid out before her, before letting out an exasperated sigh. “Fine. But if we lose because we didn’t practice enough? I. Will. Kill. You.” She emphasizes each word by poking Ernie in the chest, glaring at them, before stalking off to grab a drink of water.
Ernie turns back to the team. “So, great job during practice today. I know Jen is being a little… harsh, but it’s just because this is a pretty new team, and our first match isn’t that far away. She means well, I promise.”
Trini blinks, sitting up fully. She immediately regrets it, as all of the muscles in her body scream in protest. “Wait, our first match is when?”
