Tom’s eyes veered away from his textbooks as he heard a collision in the hallway. He was making his way down to Slughorn’s Potions class, when he witnessed this unexpected mishap.
A girl with (H/L) (H/C) hair was accidentally bumped into by a boy, leading to papers and notebooks flying everywhere. Immediately, the girl bent down to help pick up everything.
“I’m so sorry!” the boy exclaimed, handing over the parchment that didn’t belong to him. “I wasn’t looking -”
“Don’t worry about it!” Her sweet voice replied, a bright smile on her face as she returned the boy’s things as well. Taking her stuff from him, she brushed off her robes and Tom took note of the house colours she wore. “It happens to everyone! Don’t feel bad. Are you okay?”
Ravenclaws are prone to social anxiety and tend to prefer a solitary study environment. The riddle to get into the dormitory is mainly to help the students interact with one another, but the interactions most ravenclaws prefer is watching youtubers (because they definitely figured out WiFi… with help from the Slytherins cunning, and the Hufflepuffs encouragement) like markiplier and just talking over the video about how stupid he is. (But they all love him)
“Hey Riddle! Mister Perfect!” You called Tom out. Tom hissed, he knew you were taunting him.
“What do you want, L/N!?” Tom scowled. “A lot, Riddle, firstly you owe me.” You crossed your arms. “What’s since when did I own you?” Tom sneered. “Since you needed help with some dark magic, you promised that you would say that I had nothing to with it and that I have a favor from you.” You poked one of Tom’s shoulders. Tom shoved you away.
