Headcanon: Seraphina was a year or two above him at Ilvermorny and never thought one of her best friends would be a short, serious first year in Wampus - but when he single-handedly takes down two third year bullies with the Jellylegs Curse (and bodily jumps on and drags down another), she is quickly reminded why he is.
dghjklg yES I LOVE THIS SO MUCH
Seraphina and Graves going way back as friends or maybe more is one of my fav headcanons.
“I’m going to be President,” Seraphina says to him one day, matter of factly. They’re sitting outside, enjoying the warmth of the sun after a long period of exams. Graves raises his head from the book he is reading and looks up at her.
“I know that.”
“I want you to be by my side, Percy,” she insists. “When I’m up there. I need someone to rely on, and I need that person to be you.”
Percival nods, a silent agreement. This isn’t the first time they’ve had this conversation. Silence falls, before Seraphina speaks again, smiling.
“Don’t go get yourself kidnapped and impersonated by a dark wizard while in office. Imagine the paperwork!”
He laughs and shakes his head. “What are the chances of that happening?”
“Pretty slim. Who would want to wear your face anyway?”
“Well, I am pretty.”
“No you’re not.”
“Sure as hell am. That’s why you love me.”
She rolls her eyes and gets up. “Come on,” she says, lending him a hand. “We have to get to class.”
