Hope gave him a knowing smile. "Well, at least this time you admit you're poetic."

"I didn't. And I think that I haven't? You're considering me poetic. I was admitting to being charming."

"Well," she said. "It sounded like you were admitting to both."

"It was supposed to. I wasn't going to admit to either, somehow, I thought it would be funnier if I did."

Hope gave him a peculiar look. "I see," she said. "I guess your wit has come off stronger in other instances," she said with a small smirk.

"In your presence Hope I surprise even myself." He laughed. "Traits like wit must be the opposite of magic. The harder you try the easier it is the fail. Less force equals more natural. I didn't mean to be witty, or charming, or poetic. That last one I didn't even think I was."

She sighed and put her hands on her hips and looked at him. "Rex Shaw, one of these days I will get you to admit that you are poetic. I guess today is just not that day."

He laughed watching her put her hands on her hips, and say his first and last name. "Probably not. But, you never know. I might say something again. Something that you hear in the right way. I bet it won't even be right off the top of my head." He shrugged. "Could be. Who knows? ..."

Hope threw her hands into the air. "Bah! Rex, you have got to be one of the most stubborn people I've ever encountered."


Rex wb

 – 07:37, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

"One? One of." He grinned. "Well then, I guess I'm going to have to be even more stubborn. Which I didn't think I was being, so we have no bar set here. I kind of think I can be the most stubborn person you have ever encountered. It sounds to me like another opportunity for making memories."

 – 16:03, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

She raised her eyebrows at him. "No way," she said. "The most stubborn person I know is my brother. And I'd like to think your nature is not that of my brothers."

"Now it sounds more like a goal I won't be accomplishing anytime soon. Anyone can be pigheaded, I don't have brothers, or sisters. Younger or older, I do know that the skill siblings have to hate and love one another is extraordinary."

Hope Black

 – 20:23, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

That last sentiment held more weight than perhaps Rex could even fully be aware of, even if he was Hope. She nodded, a far off look in her eyes. Where was Lucas? What havoc was he wreaking? Would she ever be able to throw off his identity?


Rex wb

Unless she was thinking of him, and somehow he knew she wasn't he didn't care for these dazed, far off looks. "Hope? I can't force you to tell me. Do you want to talk about your brother? We've scratched the surface, and that might be all you want to me to know. I'm only asking because it seems like something that's ... conflicting. And you should probably talk to someone about it."

Hope Black

 – 04:39, April 25, 2014 (UTC)

Hope looked up at him, her mind still very far away. "I, um, it's just..." she failed to find words.


Rex wb

 – 04:54, April 25, 2014 (UTC)

He sighed. "It's okay. I won't rush you. It's personal, I get it." He shrugged. "Whenever you're ready to talk about it. I'm here to listen."

Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:58, April 25, 2014 (UTC)

Her stumbles obviously misinterpreted, she tried to formulate coherent sentences, and her next words came out in a near state of panic. "No, I... I'm not hiding it. Lucas is... I don't know. On the move? Is that a phrase people use? It scares me more than a little."


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 05:09, April 25, 2014 (UTC)

Not well versed in dangerous brothers, he didn't know what to say and it wasn't going to stop him from trying to speak. "No. Don't think that. Don't think I was accusing you of hiding it. This is your personal life we are talking about. Your brother. You don't have to tell me anything." He waited a minute letting that last sentence sink in. "I don't know that I use the same phrases a many other people. On the move sounds about right. To me. If it scares you, shouldn't you tell someone? Someone who can help you."

"I would've told Professor Kinsel-- he's the Hogwarts Headmaster." She pauses. "I should've told him. But it was right at the end of the year, and I was so stunned, and the Second Task was going on, and Lucas left when I told him to. So..." she trailed off again. She was going to get fired. She knew it. Her mind was racing, and she tried to slow it down. She looked at Rex trying to find something to focus on. But the only thought that occurred there was that she was probably scaring him off with all of this.


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 05:25, April 25, 2014 (UTC)

"You can still. Can't you?" He felt like he could understand why she wouldn't tell, this was her brother. "I don't know anything about your Headmaster, or that much about your school. This Professor Kinsel. He has to be around somewhere. Doesn't he? There have to be staff things he has to take care of. If you wanted to, you still have the chance to tell him. Or someone. I want to believe that I understand what you're going through Hope, I really do. You know that I can't put myself in your place. But I'm trying just to understand better."

Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 05:28, April 25, 2014 (UTC)

"Why did he have to come into Hogwarts?" she asked, not of Rex, but just into the air. "Of all the stupid, stupid things to do-- why Hogwarts? Kinsel's probably still there. Sending him an owl seems foolish-- this is something that warrants a face-to-face conversation. But how can I turn my own brother-- my own twin brother-- in?" She started pacing around the room. "They'd kill him. I know they would."

"If he's caught, and he fights back. They will. It's self-defense, no one would have another option. If you do nothing, he is going to die. If you make an effort, if you try to ask someone for help. Get whoever 'they' are to your brother before he knows what's going on. Then there could be a chance from him to survive, he'll be incarcerated but he'll still be breathing. Though, I don't really know if that would be a better or worse option."

 – 20:45, April 25, 2014 (UTC)

Hope sighed. "I can't. Not because I don't want to, but because I don't actually know where he is. I know he stalks Diagon Alley like it's his kingdom or something, but I don't know where he lives."


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)

 – 04:52, April 26, 2014 (UTC)

He wanted to laugh. Stalking an alley was the most ridiculous thing he had ever heard, and he did a lot of ridiculous things himself. "I didn't even think that. This is strange situation, and I see that very clearly. I'm conflicted. I am on the outside of it, I have no reason to be. For you, I'm trying to think of it like this. He's your brother. Plain and simple."

Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 15:45, April 26, 2014 (UTC)

Hope nodded. "Right." Conflict was consuming her as well. Was turning him in the best thing for him? She would know where he was at all times that way... hopefully. "I guess..." she said slowly. "I'd turn him in, if for no other reason than to know where he actually is, not causing any trouble." She shrugged. "But the only thing I could tell any of them is that I saw him in Hogwarts, and that I don't know where he is anymore."



Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 21:59, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

"That could be useful information. Did he talk to you when he was there? When you saw him. Do you know what he was doing there? I don't know if he would go back to Hogwarts. It doesn't make any sense to me, Why would he go there? Unless he wanted to see you, or you to see him. Then again, if he haunts an alley as if it were his own, perhaps he is the type to lay his hand in the fire."

"He was there under the Polyjuice Potion," she said, closing her eyes, trying to remember the conversation. "It wore off right in front of me. He said he was there to... be there for a girlfriend or something? Which I wasn't aware of, and quickly dismissed. I told him nothing was worth risking stepping into Hogwarts."

 – 04:32, April 29, 2014 (UTC)

"Girlfriend?" He smiled a bit, the thought of risking the danger for love. Whatever the reasoning may have been was exaggerated and romanticized in Rex mind. He tried to shake the inspiration away. "You're right. It isn't worth it. He is putting whoever this girl is in danger. If she exists. With a Polyjuice potion, I suppose, he did consider her welfare."
Hope Black

 – 04:38, April 29, 2014 (UTC)

Hope shrugged. "I don't remember. He said girlfriend, and I think there was more to it. I was just so shocked to see him, that's the only bit of information that sunk in." She gave a hollow laugh. "Go figure. My twin brother, the so-called King of Diagon Alley and Most Wanted to the Ministry finds a relationship before I do." She shrugged. "I guess there's always those girls who go for the bad guy. I never did understand that mentality."

"I don't expect you to remember everything, I'm frankly surprised you told me as much as you did. Thank you." He shrugged, not knowing why he choose to thank her. "Everyone likes danger, even if it is only short lived. I guess, your brother is the kind of person who wants to make that permanent. Maybe he found a girl who wants the same the same thing? Me personally, I don't understand romantic relationships. It always seemed to me like one person has to sacrifice for the other. Sometimes both people have to abandon some dream to be together."

 – 04:49, April 29, 2014 (UTC)

"Thank you for letting me," she said. She tried to ignore the pang in her heart at hearing his own views on relationships. "It's mutual sacrifice. But thinking of it as sacrifice puts a negative spin on it. When you find someone you love, it comes naturally. You both want to make the world better for the other person, so you do what needs to do. Sometimes you find a mutual dream to chase together." She laughed. "I guess that probably sounds naive, but that's what I think."


{{Rie|04:57, April 29, 2014 (UTC)|Rex=He shakes his head in disagreement. "That's great, but you have to be a happy person before you could ever try and make someone else happy. Some people are deluded, and they think they're complete, all they need is that person they love. So, they look for it. You can't look for love, it finds you. Whenever, if ever it finds me I want to have done what it is I need to do for me. To make me better. I don't think what you're saying is naïve. I just don't completely agree with."}

"Which explains why you said what you did in Hogsmeade..." she said, trying to keep the disappointment out her voice. "About us... and whatever this... is..." The more words she said, the stupider she felt. "Merlin, I didn't need to say that out loud..."

"This sort of thing is unusual for me. I've never met anyone who didn't want a platonic friendship that would ultimately progress into an intimate relationship. That has never been something I want, for some people friendship isn't enough." He shook his head, and laughed. "You didn't have to say it out loud. I'm glad to hear you understand."

"Yeah." He sighed. This was they way it always went for him, he was an egotistical overly-friendly flirt and he had no idea how to turn it off. He might have amped things up in this situation. His guilty feelings this time around may have been his own fault. "I'm sorry."

"You don't have to go. Unless you want to." Knowing he couldn't keep her hostage. If she didn't want to be in his company any further or see him again, there wasn't much he could do to change her mind right now. "If you have some place to be. You know, you can always comeback. You're still welcome here."

He'd kept his promise and managed not to rush any actual tattoos, that didn't stop him from doing everything as fast as he could. He even let Bronwen close the shop so he could skip out and meet up with Hope sooner than later.

Hope Apparated outside the door, as was polite, and knocked. She figured even if Rex wasn't here yet, she'd just walk in anyway.

He doesn't answer, and barely hears the knock far too preoccupied with making the place look presentable. He hadn't managed to do that the first time around, now he could at least make an effort.

 – 03:51, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

"Really?!" He puts down the easels, and lets the multiple buckets of paint hover to the ground. "I was trying to clean up for you. The last time I let you in, this place wasn't something I would've wanted you to see. And as it were, you almost didn't come back." He shrugged. "Does it look any better than it did before?"

He laughs. "Wait. Should they be?" He moves closer to her. "I know some Cleaning Charms, I just don't always use them. I usually like the paint everywhere, I actually liked the idea of leaving your footprints all over the floor. Shoe print if you didn't want to use your actual foot."

He looks at her, practically stunned. "No? No. That is a really fun idea, if I could figure out how to make that work it might just happen one day. I just meant that I don't want you to slip and fall. This will get messy. Worse than the first time, which is saying something because we did start a paint fight."
