The Portrait Corridor is infamously stocked from floor to wall with a wide variety of portraits, some even consider this the place to be if your trapped in paintings. Sometimes you'll see a few hope into another frame but try not to shine your light on their. They sort of get ticked off by that.

Ant is definitely not having the best day. After that surprise phone call nearing the end of yesterday and the party some of his friends had thrown for him in Ravenclaw tower, it's safe to say that he's crashed hard from the high of celebrating his birthday. He's lacking sleep after having been up the whole night kind of just staring at the ceiling and not being able to cry, so he's had a lot of coffee with breakfast and is on his way to the Hall of Hexes from his first class for today's Frog Choir meeting. He's honestly considering just texting Venus to tell her that he's sick, but he's already been less than enthusiastic about most things lately and he doesn't want her to think that he doesn't want to be a part of something that's so important to her.

This area of the castle is, unsurprisingly, Erin's most frequented; albeit a little exposed compared to the dungeon corridors or the party hall, the portraits here range in size from postcard to tapestry, and the former is far easier to silence with a quick charm and stuff into her bag before any of the others can complain. It's uncharacteristic of her to be so lazy in her disguise, too - which is, having no disguise at all - but changing her hair and her face takes effort and frankly, she can't be bothered at the minute. It's not like the portraits will recognise her real face if this is the first time she uses it. The portrait she's eyeing up is small, well-decorated lady in a gold frame who looks too preoccupied with her book to notice being removed from the wall. Erin's earphones are in, too, so she doesn't hear whoever it is descending the staircase behind her as she starts jimmying one of the corners of the frame away from the wall.

The lady in the portrait does notice Ant descending the staircase and looks up from her book to greet him, then suddenly yelps in shock once she fully registers Erin's presence. Ant stops in his tracks when he sees her and blinks once. Maybe it's for a project. Though he can't imagine what class would require its students to try and get one of the Hogwarts paintings, he is too lacking in sleep to properly care. He's not a prefect either, though he supposes he could mention it to Mitzi (which reminds him that shit, he hasn't replied to her text yet) .He doesn't really have the desire to stay here any longer than he has to, though, and instead clears his throat, not wanting to tap her or anything. He hates it when people invade his personal space, so he feels like he should pay everyone the same respect. "I'm not sure what you're doing but I don't think the duchess likes it." he says, referring to the very annoyed looking lady in the painting.

The sudden reaction from the painting startles her - Merlin, it was going so well! At first Erin thinks one of the other portraits has noticed what's happening and called out, but then she hears a faint buzz of conversation through the music blaring in her ears and swivels round, startled, to see the boy standing there (or rather, swaying slightly - he looks like he's about to pass out any minute). Skit. "Shh!" she hisses before she can consider a more polite greeting, eyes quickly darting around to look at the other portraits. Aside from a few confused glances, they're all used to students passing through so they seem unperturbed. "It's none of your business what I'm doing. And I'm not here." Mercifully, he isn't wearing a Prefect badge, though it's not unknown for the prefects to hide their identification symbols and create a false sense of security. This guy doesn't seem the type, though - at least not yet.

As if this isn't suspicious at all, Ant sort of just turns his gaze from the girl to the painting then back again, obviously pretty out of it. "Look, I'm sure there's a perfectly good explanation for why you're trying to get one of the portraits off the wall." he says, before stifling a yawn. "You don't need to tell me. I'm just – I'm just gonna trust you on this one." It's not that Ant is generally very trusting in people, but right now he honestly can't be bothered to deal with such an odd situation. "You should be more careful. The painting don't typically like being handled like that." He adds the last bit after the duchess in the portrait shoots him a very pointed look, looking appalled that he isn't doing anything more to save her or something. "Just saying."

Her annoyance is directed more at herself for making such a botched job of this, than it is at the guy for interrupting; it's not like this is the first time somebody has seen her prying portraits off the wall, and usually she can come up with a better excuse than just shushing them. Whatever. There's a quick woosh of air as Erin whips out her wand and casts a quick silencing charm on the image, the lady looking extremely displeased at the series of events, before shrugging her backpack from her shoulder and slipping the frame in. It's small enough to at least not look too bulky and obvious. "Poor her," she comments - months of doing this has left her somewhat numb to the personal feelings of painted figures. The boy looks disinterested enough for Erin to be confident that he isn't going to go blabbing, and- actually, he looks worse. He looks pretty out of it. "I think you should worry more about yourself than what I'm doing," she frowns, noticing the bags under his eyes and how pale he is. "You look half-dead."

"How kind of you to point that out." he says, forcing a thin smile. Normally, he is nicer to girls he's just met, but it is extremely hard to not snap at everyone he interacts with today. He takes a deep breath and tries to be less rude. He hasn't seen this girl before, and on the off chance she is one of Max's friends, he'd rather not get an earful about it later. "I'm sorry, I just didn't get much sleep last night." he says, which is a bit of an understatement. He didn't sleep at all, just staring at his phone's call log as if to convince himself that the seventeen minute reunion over the phone hadn't happened and was all just a dream. However, his mother did text him again this morning to ask when he was free to go to Lincliff and maybe visit her, proving the experience was very much real. He hasn't replied to that either. "So, what exactly are you doing putting a painting in your backpack?" he asks. Maybe he can bring it up with Mitzi later during class; he needs as many excuses to talk to her as he can get.

Ugh, maybe he is a Prefect after all. Usually she isn't careless enough to do this in front of other students, for this very reason, and her mind very helpfully goes blank as she attempts to conjure up some excuses. Nothing sounds particularly believable when she runs it through her head - no projects require this of anyone else, and it's not like the portraits need refurbishing (she's a terrible artist anyway) - so Erin decides to go for the truth. It's batshit enough. "I'm stealing it to sell on the black market for millions of Galleons," she says plainly, shrugging a shoulder in manner that's hopefully casual enough to look unbothered. As if anyone would really believe it, right? "It's how I earn a living." Maybe it's just the bad lighting but he really doesn't look good, far more affected than a sleepless night usually leaves a person - she should know, she's used to running on three hours or less. "Are you sure you're alright?"

So fucking weird, he thinks, but there are a lot of odd people around Hogwarts, so he isn't too fazed. She's probably not up to anything nefarious, so he decides to drop the topic after a soft chuckle. "Good luck with that." he says. He'll probably still end up telling Mitzi, anyway. Even if it doesn't seem like any trouble, maybe she'll get a good laugh out of it and things can get back to normal between the two of them. "I'm not, actually, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea opening up to a stranger who I caught stealing paintings." He isn't one for opening up to anyone, really. "You can go back to what you're doing. Just... be gentle with the portraits, I guess?" Ant used to spend a lot more time talking to them when he was younger and didn't have many friends, so maybe that's why he's a bit protective. Nonetheless, it seems a bit rude to just pluck someone off the wall.

Merlin, what is it with everyone in this castle being so attached to the portraits? Does no one have friends (not that Erin can say much - her own list of friendships isn't exactly exhaustive)? She gives the boy an inquisitive look at his attitude, before turning back to the wall to see if there are any other smaller frames she can steal before the other paintings get rowdy. If the duchess has company in her backpack, maybe she won't make as much noise. "You're not going to tell on me, are you?" she asks, moving along the corridor and craning her neck to look up into the rafters - ugh, nothing. Maybe the grand staircase is a better bet. "If you're a Prefect, you're obliged to keep your badge visible at all times. It's school policy." It's not, but it's all she can think of at the minute.

He knows that's fake so he almost rolls his eyes, but he's able to stop himself. It does merit a snort though, and he shakes his head. Two of his older brothers were prefects, he should know. "Not a prefect. Merlin, I could never." Ant tells her, "My — " best friend, he almost says, which is a bit of a realization for him, not that it matters. " — friend is one of the Ravenclaw prefects though, so..." He runs a hand through his hair uneasily. "She's nice, though. I don't think you'd get into much trouble if she caught you." That's a bit of a lie because he knows how seriously Mitzi takes her responsibilities. "But yeah, you don't have to worry about me telling a professor. Really couldn't be bothered right now."

The mention of his friend being a prefect earns him a quirked eyebrow - her family will kill her if she manages to get herself kicked out of Hogwarts so quickly - but then she softens a little. "Thank you," she nods, smiling slightly. Bluntness is ingrained in her as an isolationist tactic but Erin can recognise when it isn't necessary, and this guy looks like he'd literally rather be anywhere else. "I'll be more gentle with the portraits." That may be stretching the truth a little but he has a point; or rather, Erin interprets it as one, because being a little more careful handling the paintings will disturb the others less. She's about to turn a corner and try and bag herself another prize before she hesitates - she really should return the favour, right? If it had been a prefect or a do-goody first year, she'd be in the Headmaster's Office right now. "Erm- the sixth years make Dreamless Sleep Draught in class and they store the bottles in the potions cupboard. I doubt they'll notice a spare bottle going missing. They barely notice when the portraits vanish, and they talk."

He makes a mental note of that. Ant already knew, but the idea of just taking one hasn't crossed his mind. He's never stolen anything before, of course, but he's sure there's someone he could ask about it to make it an official request. "I already knew that, seeing as I am a sixth year," he starts, "But I appreciate your suggestion." The corridor is quieting down as people begin to settle into their classrooms and he begins to hear a soft buzzing coming from her earphones. "What song are you listening to?" he ends up asking. If there's one thing that might be able to help him get through this day, it's music, and perhaps getting a song recommendation might be able to get him distracted enough from all his other problems.

His bluntness doesn't phase her the way it probably would someone else - it's the language she speaks most fluently, after all - and she's perfectly content to carry on with her day, until he asks that and she freezes. Ironically she only hears him because the song has just finished, his question permeating that brief second of silence before the next tune begins, and Erin pulls out an earphone before casting a glance down at her phone screen. "Um- it's just about to change. Oh, it's- oh, Roland Faunte, how depressing." That album in particular is reserved for when she's having a good cry in her dorm room, which - actually, judging by the state of this guy, might be just what he needs. "I was about to listen to Levers, but now it's Happy Things by Molly Burnham." She glances back up at him, curious. "You like music?"

He'd much rather be talking about music with a stranger than attending a Frog Choir meeting, and Venus tends to get so caught up in meetings with Professor Pendragon anyway that he feels like his absence won't be particularly impactful. "Levers?" he repeats, having heard the song before after falling down a Cantisfy rabbit hole of song radios and random playlists. "Maybe I should be asking you if you're alright." he tells her, remembering just how sad that song is. "I haven't heard the other one though. I'll give it a listen later." Happy Things, he repeats in his head. Hopefully it's a bit uplifting. "I'm really into music, yeah." he tells her, leaning against an empty space in the wall. He's not trying to be cool or anything, he's just tired. "I play bass, and – " He takes a deep breath before letting out a chuckle. "And I'm the vice president of Frog Choir." His face scrunches up at the admission. He knows it's a bit lame, so he immediately gets on the defensive. "Kinda got roped into it by the music professor and a good friend of mine."

There's another suppressed urge to roll her eyes because of course this guy plays bass - he looks like one of those boys who thinks Tame Impala is some obscure indie artist that nobody's ever heard of - but then he mentions Frog Choir and her ears perk up a little. She had attempted to join but quickly found that her schedule was way too busy (or rather, she made sure it was too busy to avoid having to be social for once), so she doesn't think it's lame, per se. "Frog Choir? I joined- well, tried to join. I'm not sure if it's really my thing. And I'm sure you have more piano players than you could ever need." Her instrument grades are somewhat impressive, an 8 in piano and 5 in flute, but she's never performed in front of anybody and Merlin knows the stage fright would probably kill her as soon as the spotlight activated. "Is your friend the girl with the cool hair?" That's the only face Erin knows is associated with Frog Choir. Venus? Something like that.

He nods, and a small smile forms on his face at the mention of Venus, as it always does. "That's her." he confirms with a slight nod. "She's pretty cool, isn't she?" he says, and it's obvious in his voice that he does hold some level of fondness for her. He's definitely not still pining after her and only her like he was in third and fourth year – he's dated a lot of girls since then and that's put a damper on his affections – but if she expressed any interest, he'd probably ask her out. Alas, Rule Number 5 of Frog Choir exists. "It's not really a lot of people's thing, so no offense taken." he says, "It's just a cool way to meet other students, I guess. I'm mostly there for the people." He's mostly there for a specific person, but he's grown a bit attached to some of the younger years too, he supposes.

She may not be the best at reading people's intentions but she knows a crush when she sees one; mainly because she's never really experienced one herself, and thus never had to deal with the heart eyes and soft voice, so they become easy to recognise in others. "Just ask her out," she says, quite bluntly, as if she'd ever do that herself. Advice is much easier to give than it is it follow. "No need to put yourself through singing toads just to spend time with her. Or make her a playlist with Space Girl on it and she'll probably get the message." Playlists are the superior way of communicating, after all; her brother sometimes sends her whole messages spelled out through the titles of songs. It's a nice way of finding new music.

Ant actually laughs at how blunt Erin is being. "You're actually not allowed to date other members of frog choir, and she takes that stuff seriously, so..." he trails off, amused at how ridiculous that sounds. He knows how extra the club can be. Merlin, it's almost like a cult. "Besides, I think it's not a very good idea tie yourself down to one person right now. Venus is cool, yeah, but I'm not gonna let the girl I had a crush on when I was thirteen stop me from playing the field." That's what his friends say anyway, that a real relationship is way too big of a commitment for someone at their age and will only cause way more stress than it should. "I don't think I'm cut out for an actual relationship. Wouldn't know what to do."

"Not allowed to date other members?" she echoes, eyebrows flying up in confusion; though the functionality of that makes sense, it also seems very restrictive. But then again, Erin's used to living under very strict rules - it's only since transferring to Hogwarts and seeing how liberal it is that she feels like she's allowed to breathe for once. She can relate to the relationship thing, though - but for different reasons. She's not exactly playing the field herself. "I wouldn't really know what to do, either. I assume you just- go on dates. Have fun. But you obviously can't if you're not allowed to." The portrait in her bag begins to protest, muffled words coming through the fabric, so Erin slings it up over her shoulder to get it out of the way. "Surely you can date Venus if one of you leaves Frog Choir, right?" she adds, trying to find a solution like it's a maths puzzle. "Maybe that's how you know you've found the right person. You'd leave Frog Choir for them."

Ant knows deep down that there's a part of him that loves being in Frog Choir and wouldn't want to leave, even if it meant finally getting a shot with Venus. He loves being able to play music with people he enjoys and he loves being able to help the younger years with more difficult pieces, and it's the only part of him that he wasn't forced to give up last year. He's self aware to recognize this, but definitely not healthy enough to do anything about it or admit it. There's no use. Again, he has bigger problems to deal with. "How romantic." he says. It isn't sarcastic, just matter-of-fact. Ant's still holding out hope that he's going to meet his dream girl one day, so of course he's a bit of a romantic and the situation she's painted out does seem a bit cute. "I realized I never caught your name." he adds, "Or am I not allowed to know, since I caught you in the act of stealing?" he adds, scoffing a bit. What a weird excuse, he thinks. He really has no idea what class this could be for, but if people want to joke about being thieves, then he's not exactly going to be a buzzkill about it.

Maybe using the truth as a joke excuse is actually quite effective. She's never really considered just how bizarre the reality of stealing portraits is, mostly because it's what she grew up with and thus is as normal to her as breathing, but the way the guy says it makes her realise that yes, it's ridiculous, and she allows herself a small smile at the notion. "Erin," she says, eyes dropping to the floor for a second. "I'm in the year below you. I transferred over this year." Merlin knows the few weeks she's spent at Hogwarts have already been far more enjoyable than Durmstrang ever was. The smell of the dungeons in that school is something she'll likely never forget. "And you are? Aside from sleep-deprived."

"Antoine, but most people call me Ant." he replies. She hasn't been around since her first year here, and despite his complicated relationship with his parents, he doesn't think their naming abilities deserve to be slandered by just letting her assume that that's his actual name. Who names their child Ant, after all? That's all Max's doing. "Was stealing the paintings typical behavior at your old school?" he asks, raising an eyebrow.

She peers at him for a brief second, quickly deciding that Ant doesn't really suit him as she readjusts her backpack on her shoulder, the corner from the frame digging into her back. "Do you prefer Antoine or Ant? Everybody calls me Erin but my name is technically Adelaide, but that name makes me sound old." His question shouldn't be as funny as it is, and it's her own fault for being so upfront about the reasoning behind her actions but Erin has to fight back a smirk when he asks, casting a glance at the wall of faces behind her. It's certainly far more colourful here. "There aren't many portraits in Durmstrang. And the ones that do exist are all - weird. Lots of dark magic and creatures. Nobody wants them hanging on their wall."

Durmstrang, huh? She does have that slightly dark aura about her, not that he's stereotyping the other Durmstrang transferees. Most of them just tend to be a bit morbid. Maybe it's the result of having the Dark Arts as a core subject since first year. He blinks twice at her first question though, clearly not very used to being asked that. The only other person who calls him Antoine until now is Juliette, and that's probably because she forgot about the whole boggart incident in third year already. "I prefer Antoine." he answers. It'll be a bit odd hearing his real name, he supposes, but he doubts they will interact much beyond today. "And I'm glad that you find the paintings in Hogwarts more up to your standards, I suppose. There must be hundreds of them, though, so you might want a bigger backpack if you plan on collecting most."

Antoine. Yes, that suits him much better. She hates being called Adelaide herself - technically it's a middle name, but it's also the go-to for whenever one of her parents is mad at her - so she can empathise with your real name sounding alien. "There's a song called Antoine by Juniore," she points out before the thought can escape her, though he probably knows that already. Then the comment about the backpack hits and she smiles again, amused; perhaps she should adopt another method to make it look a bit less conspicuous. Shrinking them down, maybe? "That's what the extension charm is for," Erin tells him with a shrug, like she's secretly hoisting the entire corridor's worth of paintings on her shoulder. "I haven't had chance to explore the whole castle yet, though. Are there any more galleries on the top floors?"

There aren't any other areas as covered from top to bottom with paintings as this one, though Ant has never particularly been one for exploring the castle. "I'm sure if you just work your way through each floor of the Grand Staircase Tower, then you'll be able to see loads." he tells her, obviously not actually believing that she's going to steal any of these paintings. "I've heard that song before." he tells her. He discovered it exactly because he decided to try typing his name into the Cantisfy search bar, and it's a good one. Truthfully, he doesn't know any songs named 'Erin', but decides to try looking for one later and add it to one of his playlists to commemorate the interaction. "You have good taste in music."

Well, no shit she can just work her way up from the bottom floor, but that takes time and effort; still, the attempt at help is appreciated and Erin gives him a curt little nod, making mental note to tackle some of the towers next - maybe not between classes, so the place isn't bustling with students hurrying around. "My music taste is mostly lofi mixes and The Japanese House," she says with an arched eyebrow, wishing it was a bit more extensive than that but no, she makes up a good two-thirds of all the views on those lofi hip-hop jazz videos on Flootube. As for Ant- well, Erin can practically almost hear the angsty indie music playing on repeat in his brain. Nobody has ever looked more have you heard of Boy Pablo? - well, except maybe her brother. "But thanks. I feel like I already know yours, but enlighten me."

He can already feel her judging him and immediately realizes that she is one of those people who is snobbish about the kind of music she listens to. It doesn't bother him considering he's exactly the same, but it looks like the two of them may come into a bit of a conflict here. "I like the Japanese House." he says, deliberately choosing not to comment on her interest in lofi mixes. He's never understood why anyone was into that shit. It barely sounds like anything. "I feel like I'm walking into a trap." he says truthfully, "Mostly indie stuff. Tame Impala, Cage, Boy Pablo, Rex Orange County... It's a lot." Ant could go on and on at this point. "What's your favorite song?"

Yep, just as predicted. His admission makes her bite back a laugh at just how easily she was able to call that, but to be honest, it’s not like she can judge that hard; she hasn’t really listened to a lot of that particular genre. Her exasperation stems mainly from how often her brother and other Durmstrang boys have told her that The 1975 are the best musicians to grace the planet. “I don’t really have a favourite favourite. It changes all the time.” She’s far too indecisive to let herself get attached to one song permanently - what if it doesn’t suit her mood at the time? “I kind of have categories for them. My favourite happy song at the minute is Can’t Stop Your Lovin’ by Poolside. And my favourite sad song is Django by Samia. Though I wouldn’t recommend you listen to that last one if you already feel down. It might trigger something,” she says, feeling like a bit of an information dump before looking back up at him. “What’s yours?”

Ant doesn't even have to think. "Just Like Heaven by the Cure." he says immediately. It's his favorite song no matter his mood and it always ends up at the top of his Cantisfy wrapped at the end of every year. He can tell that she doesn't seem to be looking very favorably upon his music taste, but he reassures himself that people are allowed to have different opinions. Even if their opinions are wrong. Besides, he can't let himself begin to feel insecure about his music taste too. It's practically the only thing left that feels wholly him. "I might try listening to Django later. Listening to sad music to feed the flames of my depression has always been a hobby of mine." he drawls, though he's completely serious. Maybe if he gets sad enough, he'll be able to get all the negativity out of his system.

Admittedly, she hasn't heard it; it certainly sounds familiar, and she knows the band, but 80s new wave has never been a genre she's spent any time on. "I'll give it a go," she nods, surprising herself at just how much she actually wants to hear the song. Maybe broadening out her own taste wouldn't be such a bad thing after all. "It's my go-to when I want to cry," she admits a little sheepishly, remembering the first time she came across that particular tune and the subsequent dehydration migraine it brought on. That had been one hell of a scene - Theodore rushing in, looking panicked only to nearly flip his lid when he realised she was bawling over a song. Bless him, he's never really understood. "Everybody needs a playlist for days like today. It's the best way to get through it."

Ant nods, her last couple of words resonating with him slightly. The comment makes him feel as if he's met a kindred spirit, and he resolves to try and make a playlist later. One that will probably include Django, however that might sound. He's sure he will enjoy it – he finds beauty in most music. "You're right." he agrees with her. He feels his phone buzz in his pocket, a series of texts from Venus asking where he is and he realizes that he should probably get going. "I have to go, but..." It was nice meeting you does not seem like the correct thing to say. It was strange meeting Erin, for sure. Whether that strangeness is nice or not is debatable. "Thank you for the song rec." he ends up saying instead.
