The boathouse is an underground harbour where the boats are stored year-round. These are the same boats that are docked when the first years arrive to Hogwarts on September 1st of every year. Up until 1995, there was a portrait of Percival Pratt hung on one of the inside walls of this boathouse and was used to conceal a secret entrance to the Grand Staircase. Some small wooden boats are stored in the rafters of the ceiling as well a typical things needed for the upkeep of the boats.

After Pratt's portrait was taken away, there were only three entrances to the boathouse. The path outside, the stairs that lead from the Entrance Courtyard and the path that leads to the Lake.

Fireworks are occasionally set off from the boathouse exterior to signal a party, holiday or special event.

Elouan turned sixteen today, but his birthday had been short of fantastic. His Astronomy professor had pulled him aside to tell him that she was concerned about his academic performance so far this term and it crushed him even if he knew she was trying to be polite and she was simply concerned. It had put him on such a rough start to his morning and even after she told him she can move him to have a different partner who might be more stimulating to his learning environment. He felt talked down to, but he must admit that a change in partners would be nice. His old one was quite the snore and he loves Astronomy. It's usually so easy, but he guesses he has just been extra anxious lately with seeing a certain someone around the school and all...and he got a letter from his aunt about something urgent that has certainly been on his mind. Maybe that's why his magic has gotten worse too. Not that Elouan is sure he had been producing magic at all before. Still, the point is his birthday is miserable. What happened to his Sweet Sixteen? Where are a lot of things he has seen in American high school movies? A bit glum and pouty, he has found himself sitting in the boathouse with his face close to the water. He cried for a little while when he first arrived, but his face is now dry and only minimally red. To himself, he quietly sings Mulan's Reflection and periodically laughs at the ridiculousness of it. It brings him some happiness.

Kian has been using his spare time to explore the castle; it is so huge and he doesn't want to waste time getting lost all the time. He's already been late to three classes, and that sort of behavior does not reflect his personal sense of discipline very well, much to his dismay. He reaches the boathouse during this bout of wandering, and he wonders to himself just how much there is left of the castle for him to discover. He's about to leave again because there is not much for him to do here and it is near empty, but a quick scan of the area allows him to spot someone with his face dangerously near the water. Kian's face scrunches and a couple green specks form in his eye before he can help himself and will them away; there is no way that water is clean. Putting your face near it is disgusting. "What are you doing?" he asks, the judgment bleeding into his voice before he can stop it from being so apparent, approaching the boy he's talking to. Maybe he's been spelled or something. Are there sirens at Hogwarts?

He jumps, hand slipping off of the edge of the stone and falling into the water, which leaves him gagging as his insanely nice sweater sleeve gets drenched in the green water. Elouan whips his face away and closes his eyes, shaking his arm towards the water to try to get some of the moisture out without having to touch it. "Why did you do that?" he mumbles softly, eyes opening and glancing over at the other boy. The judgement itself was enough to startle him and he feels his heart still racing as he starts to become more aware of his surroundings. "I was having a Mulan moment," he answers shyly. He slowly stops shaking his sleeve, but leaves it extended out to avoid it dripping on him. His face seems visibly pained because God he should not have to be dealing with this. His shoulders tense as he tries to recoil his arm away from the wet edge of his sweater. He cringes, but he tries to smile. "What's so wrong with that?" He expects some sort of homophobic sentiment. Elouan has certainly gotten used to that over the last term. Everything he does seems to be sus in the eyes of some.

Kian's eyes widen just a bit (nothing that would express serious judgment, but it's definitely there) because of how absurd his answer is and he takes a deep breath before his hair turns purple or something. He has gotten better at controlling his powers and he feels like there is no point in being a metamorphmagus if everyone knows you can do it. If everyone knew he could change his appearance, then how would he use that ability to his advantage? "What's wrong with – " He repeats incredulously before answering, "It's incredibly unsanitary, for starters." he says, bringing his wand out because the poor boy looks like he's going to faint with the water drenching his sleeve. "Scourgify." he casts before continuing, and the green-ish tint from the water disappears. Afterwards, he casts a drying charm and watches as the sleeve returns to its original state. Merlin, it looks expensive. At least there's nothing magic can't fix. "I don't know what a 'Mulan moment' is, but I hardly think having one would have been worth it had you fallen in. Then your entire sweater would've gotten ruined." Kian almost shudders at the thought of being covered in water from that lake.

Elouan's embarrassment reads clearly across his face namely at the fact that the other boy takes care of his sleeve for him. He stands and edges away from the water, tucking his previously soaked arm into his chest and beginning to anxiously toy at his collar. "Thank you." His voice is suddenly clear and more firm because if there is one thing that he is sure of, it's that having manners isn't embarrassing. After that, however, his face turns down towards the stone. This boy is taller and larger than him and is clearly not very receptive of him, so naturally he fails to express his usual confidence. Other boys have always managed to stunt that in him and if you knew anything about Elouan, you would understand why. After a moment, he glances up, but he quickly turns away towards the water. "Have you never watched Mulan? It's a Disney Muggle movie— Um, you should watch it," he laughs, which usually pushes him to be more extroverted even if it is forced. He hums it a little before glancing over to catch his reaction. "It was funny if you had watched the movie."

Kian nods when Elouan starts humming but still looks thoroughly confused. "I don't watch muggle movies." he says, plainly. Kian has always been one more for reading; he is a fast reader and doesn't really have the patience to sit through two hours of anything especially when he feels like the plots of most movies can easily be resolved in twenty minutes max if the characters in them just used their heads. At least with books, you know what the characters are thinking, and it gives more reason to their stupidity. Afraid he is coming across as too rude, he adds, "But I'll look it up." Though he has no intention of actually doing so. Now that Elouan is looking away, he's less shy about getting a better look at his face. He recognizes the other boy from a couple of his classes, but more importantly he notices Elouan's face is a little red. He does not normally care very much about the wellbeing of others, but based on the five minutes he's spent interacting with the other boy, he feels like he might be odd and melodramatic enough to just go back to sulking by the lake once he leaves (and maybe even fall in, given how he startled earlier). Kian decides to stay just a couple more minutes and clears his throat. "I'm Kian, by the way." he says, "I transferred in. I think we're in the same year."

Elouan smiles at the notion that the other boy will search it later even if he doesn't. He doubts he will ever know the outcome of it and it doesn't matter to him much, but the niceness is appreciated. At the introduction, he turns and his smile widens. He has a few butterflies growing in his stomach, but he tries to suppress them. "It's a pleasure, Kian. I'm Elouan," he tells him, giving him a small, polite nod. He would usually extend his hand out in courtesy, but he assumes that he has an issue with germs and it isn't as if El's hand was cleaned. Instead he pulls at the shoulder of his sweater, which is a bit loose on him. His mother sent it to him a bit too big and he hasn't had the heart to ask someone else to charm it to be more fitted. After all, the note attached said he could do it himself and even though that just meant you can have it done once it is in your possession, he has taken it a bit literally. "You're right. We have some classes together! I transferred in last year, so..." He clears his throat as if to clear the awkwardness before smiling again. "How are you taking it?"

Elouan sounds so nice. Kian knows that should be a good thing, but whenever he is around people who seem to be truly polite and well-meaning, he feels like a bit of an impostor and that makes him uneasy. It isn't that he's done anything terrible, it's just unsettling for him to realize that other people just go about life and naturally bring goodness into the world. He regrets engaging already. He's never been good at making new friends and he doesn't really know how to continue the conversation, so he is grateful when Elouan ends with a question. "It's fine." he says, and mentally bangs his head against an imaginary desk. It feels odd divulging more information about his life to a stranger. "I'm adjusting... fine." The redundancy of using the word a second time makes Kian feel irritated with himself and he decides he just... doesn't want to talk anymore. "You were crying." he says instead, "Why?"
