Fairypools


Accessible only by a foot hike through the Glen Brittle forest, the series of small waterfalls that make up the so-called Fairy Pools are some of the most pristine swimming holes in the world. On a sunny day, the turquoise waters of the natural pools are so clear, one can readily see each moss-covered stone at the bottom. Located at the foot of the Cuillin Mountains, the crystal-clear water flows between pools with waterfalls of various shapes and sizes to make a natural wonder as popular with muggles as with wizards.

It's been a few days since Divya and Mia left London, stopping at various points on the way here, but they've finally made it to Skye. It's absurdly early in the morning - sunrise was about half an hour ago - but it's worth it to make it here before the usual summer daytime tourist rush. "Isn't it gorgeous?" Mia calls back, hopping across the stepping stones as they make their way up the trail. "It's easy to believe it's connected to the Folk." That's because it is; Mia's heard there's a portal in one of the bigger pools to Tír na nÓg, but it's not like she can test that theory today. She'll just have to try to find it some other time. Much as she loves Divya, she can't risk just telling people what she is. Especially not non-magical people.

Divya trails a short distance behind her, eyes trained on the ground to ensure she doesn't stumble over anything. Once she's where her friend is standing, she stops and stares at the pools of water with a small smile creeping onto her face. "I heard that it was- but from my mother, so," she comments lightly, laughing as she moves past her to get closer to the water. Part of her finds it a bit comical that she knows little things about the world around them that Mia will never (or so she assumes). Another much larger part is disappointed by this, so when she glances at Mia again, her face is a bit sad. Not for very long because the sight of her seems to always make her smile. "It is gorgeous. I can't believe I've never been." Well, she can. Her mother isn't one for driving in cars for long periods of time and this has to be a ridiculously long drive from Whitby. It sure as shit was a long one from London.

"Who knows? Maybe she's reliable this time," Mia says, though she knows that she is. She also knows Divya's mother, though, and, well... the woman's mad. Absolutely batshit. "I knew you'd like it! It's always seemed very you." It's a shame, really, that she can't show Divya Tír na nÓg - that truly is gorgeous, if dangerous for a human traveller. But Mia would have handled that part, easy. But there's something called the statute of secrecy that she's not allowed to break. "Though its quality tanks as soon as the tourists start arriving, so we probably shouldn't stay all day here."

A grin manifests itself on her face as soon as Mia says the fairy pools are very her. They are, but to hear it from someone she values very highly is obviously sweet. Her ears start to burn, but she assumes that's from the approaching Sun. "Statistically speaking, my mother has to be right about something eventually. She can't only spew horse shit." It's funny to her that her mother is still (in a way) spewing shit except she somehow manages to be right. She supposes her mother was right about tarot too. "We should have at least a decent hour, shouldn't we? I want to be able to properly stretch my legs and get a good feel for the scenery." She wonders if she would be able to find the entrance hidden underneath one of the pools and what that would appear to be in Mia's eyes, but she can't do that without being suspicious. Divya moves a bit closer to the water, sitting down on a large rock and motioning for Mia to join her.

"God, don't bring up statistics," Mia begs, adopting a pained expression as she follows Divya to the rock. "By that logic my dad has to be right about something too. Can you imagine?" Technically he is right that their order is correctly targeting wizards, but she doesn't think he's right about- well, about any of his rhetoric at all. Mia likes to think of herself as a critical thinker, and nothing she's seen herself lines up with what he frames as the truth. God, she hates liars. "I think so, too. It'll take other people a while to get up this far, too, if the time it took us is any indication. So we should be good, especially if we move on to the less-travelled pools in a bit." This one's beautiful, of course, with its waterfall, but she remembers the absolute swarm of people from last time.

Knowing what he said while she was spending the night, she knows Mia's father hasn't been wrong about everything although with his stances, she wishes he was. It troubles her to think that there are people that would want to kill her. She's been worried enough about that just being a woman in general let alone a witch. It had never occurred to her that she would have to be so scared of things like that. "It isn't really about statistics," she says with a small chuckle. "I'm not a maths person and you know that." To think she has barely studied any mathematics the last few years... Goodness, how does the wizarding world expect them to flourish in any other aspect of life outside of magic? She supposes they don't intend on any of them leaving and living in the Muggle world, but Divya thinks she would much prefer it or had thought so until she found out about the witch hunter business. "Anyway, that would be nice, wouldn't it? We can walk a bit longer and have some time to ourselves. We should have brought food." It's in the morning and they missed breakfast to get out here earlier, so of course she's feeling a bit hungry. She could conjure up some fruit, but she's with Mia and her wand was left in the car.

"Maths doesn't really matter in day-to-day life," Mia waves her off, shuffling to the edge of the rock to peer into the crystal-clear water. There doesn't seem to be any sign of a portal in this particular pool, though she wasn't really expecting there to be. This is one of the more popular ones, after all; don't want too many random humans falling into fairyland, do they? "Aside from having a GCSE, that is, but that's hardly an issue for either of us." Neither of them would be at prestigious boarding schools without it, anyway. She glances back over her shoulder at Divya with a smile, shrugging at the food comment. "We can drop by a shop once we get back into town if you like? Get things for a picnic and find somewhere nice to sit."

Divya nods, but to think she got her OWLs in Ancient Runes and Divination instead elicits a small laugh. It's ridiculous the more she sits and thinks about it. Even if she told Mia about her being a witch, she doubts she would be believed. She wouldn't believe her. "We should! I think that would be super cute and we could even change into some nicer dresses- turn it into a whole event," she suggests, tone lightening the more she speaks. "If you don't have one, I have plenty. I had to bring some for my school's balls." Some of them are probably more robe-like, but she can cast a couple quick charms while Mia isn't around and get away with it, right?

"That's adorable," Mia laughs, remembering the suggestion on her front steps of dressing up and running around a ruined castle. It's a good thing she brought a dress just for this eventuality, isn't it? It's one that her mother - her fae mother - gave her, made to be acceptable among non-magical people but still pretty. And better-crafted than what most humans could manage. She supposes it was a mum's guilt present. "I've got a dress, don't worry - should I google and find the closest castle ruin? That we don't have to pay for entry to." There should be a few, she thinks. This is Scotland, after all. "It'll make a cute insta post."

"Oh, we totally should! I bet there are plenty-" Divya pulls out her phone, hoping for some ounce of cell service. Her phone display should appear differently to her than it does Mia, so she doesn't worry about getting out the Seeker app and typing into it. "A picnic in fancy dresses in the ruins of a castle? Perfection," she says, visibly delighted as she grins back at the other girl. Divya hasn't posted on Instagram in ages, but she blames it on how shitty the app is and not the fact that she only has access to Witchagram for most of the year. Her Witchagram is pretty and aesthetically consistent though. "We could do a whole photoshoot. It would be so cute. I don't think I've seen you dolled up in ages either." Maybe ever, but she has a vague memory of something years ago.

She can't help but get a glimpse of the app Divya gets up, and it's an effort to stop from visibly reacting when she reads the word Seeker. Isn't that a witch thing? Oh, that's not good at all. Does she mention it? But then she'd have to explain how she knows what it is and that's even worse. She chooses instead to just pretend she never saw it - if Divya slips up around her parents she'll do damage control then, but otherwise she'll pretend like she didn't see anything. Yes, that works. "We should, you're right! So after this let's go buy food, go back to the hostel to get changed and then go have our picnic?"

Divya has no reason to think she should be concerned, so she isn't. The only thing she's concerned about is Seeker not loading her search, clicking her phone off with a small sigh. "Yeah, that sounds wonderful!" she says, a bit chipper than the sigh would lead anyone to believe. "Google won't load out here though. Maybe it's my service provider or something." She rolls her eyes dramatically before turning back towards the water. "We will figure it out though. Once we get closer to the hostel, I should have service again." A small moment of silence, listening to the rushes of the water and then she pipes up. "Speaking of figuring it out, have you thought about what you're going to do once you graduate? Leaving home and such." After knowing each other for years, they have talked about it before of course, but as their last summer goes on and on, it's starting to become more of a reality for both of them. Or so she hopes.

Internally, Mia's still freaking out over her suspicions, but you wouldn't know it from looking at her. The shrug she gives appears relaxed, and as does her smile. Benefits of growing up unable to lie, she supposes. You've got to learn to act. "Well, you know I'm applying to Cambridge," she says, dipping her hand in the water. "For Law. I'm pretty sure I'll get in; my predicted grades are higher than the required ones, and I'm on scholarship at Westminster College, so it should be easy. I'll just write something about the struggles of the homeless in my personal statement." There's movement in the corner of her vision - is that a pixie? It better not approach them. She doesn't have patience for pixies right now. She pretends not to see it, though, focusing instead on Divya again. "After that, I guess we'll see. I want to get out from under my dad's thumb, though. Have you thought about what you want to do?"

She turns to her friend with a small, pleased smile. It's nice knowing Mia has things figured out and she has her way out all settled. Not a single part of her doubts her ability to get into Cambridge either. Divya knows Mia is wicked intelligent. "You're right. I don't think you have much to worry about in that regard." She pauses for a moment, questioning what she should say and what she wants to do. "I want to go to school, but I don't know where. Probably study English or Classics, then hopefully land something at a newspaper- a proper one. I figure as long as I go to a university with boarding, I should be fine for a few years, but I don't really know what I'll do." She isn't sure if her relationship with her mother will even survive this summer as unfortunate as it is and if that's the case, then she will probably lose most of her belongings too. She isn't sure she could start out at a Muggle uni with heaps of magical things and almost no real money to her name.

"Have you been to any open days?" Mia asks, smile brightening at the compliment. It's always nice to be acknowledged. "You'd make a great reporter." She pauses just long enough to check to see if the pixie's gone - it hasn't, and she does her best to pretend she's not focusing on frosting over its legs to scare it off. What? It can still fly. "You know," she continues slyly, letting her head rest on her shoulder as she regards her friend. "Cambridge gives accommodation for most of the degree."

"No, I haven't. I have been too far away and too busy for that sort of thing," she dismisses, hoping it isn't too suspicious. It's true though. Hogwarts isn't very accommodating to those that want to pursue actual degrees after graduation. "And I don't know about that. I don't think I could land a spot at Cambridge," she finishes, hearing the incessant fluttering of pixie wings and glancing up to ensure she's hearing correctly. When she spots it, her eyes quickly fall down onto Mia again. She isn't lying to her. She doesn't know how she could possibly land a spot there without any proper test scores. Fuck Hogwarts. "I would love to join you though and you know that. I will still try- just for you." Divya adds the last part with a small nudge and cheeky grin.

Yeah, if she's magical she's probably at Hogwarts, isn't she? Mia's kicking herself for never asking for the name of Divya's Scottish boarding school. It seems so obvious now. But her mum can't be a real witch with the number of inaccuracies she seems to spout, not unless she's just playing it up to put people off her trail? It's something Mia will have to consider. "Why not?" she asks, raising her brows. She assumes Divya isn't actually taking A-Levels if she's a witch, but she can't exactly let on that she suspects that. "You're smarter than me, and I'm pretty sure I'll get in. You shouldn't have difficulty with interviews or anything, either." She doesn't fail to notice Divya's gaze flitting towards the pixie, and abruptly stops her attempts to freak it out with frost. It's more important that she doesn't let on that she knows anything about this; Elijah knowing is more than enough for her. And even though she trusts Divya more than she does him, it's still best to keep the information under lock and key. "Let's coordinate which college we apply to, too," she mirrors Divya's grin, before turning her gaze back toward her hand, still trailing in the water.

Her nose scrunches up and she turns towards the water too, trying to hide her expression since she obviously can't hold herself back from doing it. "I don't know. I just don't feel too confident about it and I think that should settle it." The one time she doesn't seem so outwardly self-assured and determined is in academics of all places. It's something she has always excelled in and she's never once strayed from the thought of attending some prestigious university except lately. Realizing she would have to start putting in all of this extra time to sorting out her exams certainly killed her spirit. "We will see what happens. I suppose. We should set our minds on manifesting it." It's only a half-joke, but she laughs to disguise the fact that she's serious about setting her intentions and what not. To her, it helps. "Anyway, which ones are you applying to then?"

"I don't see why you feel that way," Mia says, but her tone is gentle. She knows Divya well enough to know when she's genuinely insecure about something, and academics have always been one of those. That doesn't mean she gets it; Divya's easily the smartest person she knows. The quip makes about manifesting makes her snort, though. "Do you think it'd work if we both focus on it? Brute force the universe? I haven't really decided beyond Cambridge, though; maybe LSE and-" she abruptly breaks off at a tug on her hair, head shooting up to look at Divya again. "Did you really just pull my hair?"

Since Mia seems fine with moving on, she doesn't want to dwell on why she's insecure. It's easier to pretend she isn't, but she can't lie and tell the other girl that. She's always found Mia to be honest with her, so she should be too. Regardless, she drops it and certainly after this ridiculous accusation. Her head whips towards her friend, blonde hair flying over the opposite shoulder as she narrows her eyes. "No? Are we seven again, Mia? Are you kidding?" Her tone isn't rude, but it is a bit offended that the other girl would seriously think she would do such a thing.

Mia looks unconvinced - who else would be pulling her hair? There's nobody else around - but then she feels it again, on the back of her head, this time accompanied by the buzzing sound of wings. "What the fuck," she begins, turning around to try and catch sight of her assailant. She's not stupid, she knows it's probably the pixie from earlier, but it occurs to her that she really can't afford to let on that she knows that. "Ow. I'm not kidding. Did you see anything?"

When she glances at said assailant and it becomes clear it's the pixie, she reaches behind Mia and swats aggressively at the blue creature. When she smacks it in the face with the back of her hand, she reaches down and lightly tugs on the other blonde's hair, so it doesn't seem as if she was reaching behind her for nothing. "Sorry, Mia. It's just- something in your hair," she says, shifting so she's sitting a bit further behind the other girl and starts gently toying with her hair. Almost as if Merlin blessed her himself, it just so happens a small piece of bush had been blown into her hair. "See?" Divya's hair is yanked backward and she immediately bites down on her lip to hold down the pained yelp she wants to let out. When her teeth release her lip, she smiles and holds the bush out in front of her before flicking it into the grass.

"Were you trying to get that the whole time?" Mia asks, purposefully phrasing it as a question so she can continue to pretend she doesn't know there's a pixie about. She twists around to face Divya properly, frowning at the piece of bush. Did she just summon that, or was it there already? The pixie itself is still fluttering around behind Divya's head, starting to chatter angrily in Fae, and Mia's doing her best to block it out so she doesn't seem suspicious even as it starts insulting both their upbringings. Thank god Divya doesn't speak Fae; this thing's going on about how Mia's a shame to her court, and she doesn't know how she'd explain that away. "But thank you. I hate having things in my hair."

Divya forces her smile to last as she hears the incessant chattering behind her. Pixies are absolutely horrendous creatures. If only she hadn't left her wand in the car... How stupid. "Don't we all? I apologize for being so aggressive. It was unnecessary," she responds lightly, gesturing with her finger for Mia to turn around. Her hands twirl around a piece of the other girl's hair as if that's what she intends to do when she really snatches the lone pixie and throws it across the pool, not minding where it ends up. It clearly doesn't care where she ends up.

It's an effort to keep from snorting at the torrent of profanities that comes from the pixie, growing fainter as it soars across the pool away from them, but somehow Mia manages to keep any indication that she's noticed from her face. "You're forgiven this time," she tells Divya, still turned obediently around. "But warn me next time, please. You know I don't like surprises. Is it all gone now?"

"I know. I'm sorry," she tells her, sounding sincere. She is sorry. She isn't sure why pixies are around here messing with Muggles anyways. "It's all gone now," she finishes, moving forward to sit directly beside her again. "Pesky nature, hm?" Divya laughs, but her eyes are trained on where the pixie vanished off to behind a large rock across the way. Quite frankly, she's surprised that was so effective. It's almost too good to be true. "Anyway, you were saying you plan on applying to Cambridge and LSE and?"

Mia shuffles around to face Divya again, except now she's on the alert for any more fae that think they want to try to out her. This encounter was uncomfortably close, and she's not sure she'll be able to pretend not to notice next time. And what if Divya tries to remove her memories, or something? Isn't that the law? She can't let that happen, not when she's just figured out what Divya is. "Hm? Oh, I was thinking Edinburgh too. You know, for the aesthetic. I haven't chosen the rest."

Divya opens her mouth to comment on choosing one's university based off of aesthetics before she realizes she would do the same and shuts it with a sheepish smile. "Edinburgh is nice. I wouldn't mind going there myself, so maybe I will apply there at least." Still the thought of figuring that out is a large one and it's a bit pesky. She doesn't want to begin to sort that out and certainly not now with the thought of the pixies and what that means for them. Does she have to mess around with Mia's memories? What does that mean for this whole conversation? She isn't sure she would be able to do it well enough to just get rid of small glimpses of pixies, but she also doesn't want to report to the Ministry and possibly get in trouble. "I doubt I will go for Cambridge, but you certainly should. I know you're so confident about it already, but I really do think you would get in."

"Of course I would," Mia says, and it's not even due to arrogance. Her school just genuinely sends about a third of each graduating class to Oxbridge, and she's near the top of her classes. It's a given. "I mean, there are five choices. You'd still have four left if you did apply Cambridge with me. And I think you'll surprise yourself; you're genuinely one of the smartest people I know. Stop underselling yourself."

She scoffs and rolls her eyes, leaning forward and placing her hand gently on the surface of the water. "Stop it. If only you saw me at school this prior term, Mia, you would have lost all faith in me. Swear," she says, swirling her hand through the blue. "Some people simply shouldn't apply to Cambridge, then it would be easier on admissions." Divya wishes she could just tell her: I don't know how to fudge my exams to fit Cambridge standards and I haven't even gotten a normal education the last six years. How am I supposed to compete with you or anyone else? Except she can't and it frustrates her. She adores Mia and would do anything for her, but to think that she has this ridiculously large lie to hide from her is obviously painful. "It's just one of five though. I know you're right on that, but I have to think about it, okay?"

"The only thing I've lost faith in with you is your taste in men," Mia quips, raising her brows with a smile. But she's capable of recognising when Divya's starting to get frustrated, so she backs off, tossing her hair back over her shoulder. "But yeah, we've got a month or two to think about it still, so there's not that much pressure. I'm sure it'll work out for both of us in the long run." Once Mia gets out from under her parents' thumbs - both sets, really, but her fae parents are so not her problem right now no matter how much of a fuss they like to kick up. "Do you want to find some of the less-popular pools? This one's about to get busy, I think." Also, she wants to see if she can figure out which one has the portal in it.

Divya nods and stands, flicking her wet hand at the water before wiping it on her shorts. "Oh, Mia, you did not-" She gives her friend a small glare before laughing, starting their walk towards the farther pools. "I told you about the bookstore boy, right? He wanted suggestions and actually purchased them. So many boys want to just tell you your taste is bad and I know my taste isn't bad. Anyway, that was so nice and he wanted my number and everything. He's texted a couple of times since, but not a lot." Her tone lifts when she talks about it as she pulls her phone from her pocket in order to find the photo he sent her. It's been about a month and nothing has really come of it, so she's set her mind on the fact that nothing ever will. She just likes the thought of being liked. "Anyway, you're one to chat."

"As long as he's not a repeat of that one with the playlists - what was his name? Some kind of insect? Wait, let me guess." She feigns being deep in thought. "Worm? Beetle? All apt descriptors, I think." She is visibly interested in whatever Divya's about to bring up on her phone, though; pointing out her friends' boys' faults is one of Mia's greatest pleasures in life, and Divya really does give her the most material by far. "If your standards are he bought my book recommendation, babe, I don't know what to tell you. Is he nice at least? And what are you on about, I'm one to chat? My taste is fine."

Immediately, laughter erupts from the blonde, pushing her hair behind her ears. "His name was Ant. Well, it is Ant, but he doesn't mean anything," she says, waving a dismissive hand before turning down towards her phone and finding the photo of the bookstore boy. "Mia, never talking to a junior boy again. They are absolute heathens. Boys in my own batch are immature enough." She turns her phone over to face the other girl. "His name is Joseph and he is very nice. He is a bit- terrible at responding promptly, but it isn't as if I'm a star in that regard, hm?"

Mia waves her hand at the correction, already leaning in to pass judgement on Divya's new boy. "Same vibe. Who calls themself Ant?" After a moment squinting at the photo, she wrinkles her nose and shifts away again. "No offence, but he looks like he eats rats in the London underground. And Joseph? You know what they say about J names, right?" It's easy for her to pass judgement; she hasn't dated since she was fifteen. Bigger things to worry about. "Though if he's nice I guess personality is what matters."

Divya turns down towards her phone, staring at the picture. "I thought he was fine- J name or not. I don't choose boys based off of their names." Obviously if she was willing to talk to a boy whose name was a literal bug. She puts her phone away, visibly disappointed in Mia's reaction although she expected nothing else. They have totally different tastes, so it seems. "Anyway, he's weird. Ant. His brother is in my year and he is somehow even worse as in- 'taught me why I should hate boys.'" But she can't hate boys. Boys are so nice and easy to understand and she doesn't have to think about boys (usually).

"Don't frown at me like that," Mia says, nudging Divya with her shoulder. To her dismay, she's not surprised by what her friend continues with, but is still keen to express her disappointment. "Don't tell me you dated two brothers. Oh my god. Was this before or after the insect?"

"Circe... No!" she exclaims, protesting as her nose scrunches up. "His brother is such a douchebag. I would have never dated him in a million lifetimes. He's not my type at all," she insists, shaking her hands in front of her before crossing her arms over her chest. Max really is one of the worst boys she's ever seen. "He's terribly rude. Everything about him is so...horrible. He's one of those boys, you understand?"

Mia does understand, wrinkling her nose at the mental image. It doesn't help that half the guys she's dated would fit that description (listen, she had a self-hatred phase, okay?). It makes her feel marginally better that if any of them were to try to get in her way now the chances are they'd find themselves six feet under. "Oh, I know so many," is all she says. Divya doesn't need more details than she already has. "Pick any boy at my school and chances are he's like that. Seriously." There's a faint buzzing coming from somewhere nearby, but she pays it little heed. Chances are it's another pixie, after all, and she doesn't exactly want a repeat of earlier's incident.

Divya chuckles, thinking back to Elijah and contemplating if she should mention him at all. She decides she would rather not know if he's an asshole because she does have a knack for attracting the pretentious asshole types (and she can confirm one of those traits to be true automatically although she doesn't mind). "It's nice you don't date around with those boys. I'm telling you none of them are worth it," she insists. Her words pierce through the progressively louder buzzing of pixies floating over head. Maybe she pissed them off, so she curses herself silently. Please go away. Please. Then all of a sudden one starts violently pulling on and biting at her jumper and she yelps, snapping her arm and subsequent sleeve away from the creature.

Mia keeps her face carefully blank at Divya's comment, mostly because she really does date around with those boys (at least, when she used to date) and she'd rather not draw attention to the fact. It's one thing to judge Divya's taste and another to have Divya do the same to her, after all, and Mia's never been fond of embarrassment. She's saved from answering by her friend's yelp, eyes falling on the little blue pixie hovering beside her friend's sleeve. There's no way she can pretend to not have noticed this time, so she does the next best thing, hand shooting out and grabbing the creature out of the air before it can launch itself at Divya again. "I guess these pools live up to their name," she says, making some effort to pretend like she at least isn't magical as she raises the pixie to eye-level and glares at it. That, of course, has the side effect of causing its little friends to descend upon her instead, yanking at her hair with all the anger of several blue toddlers having a temper tantrum.

When the pixie is snatched from the air, her attention snaps over towards Mia and her eyes fill with this terrible sense of dread. Her stomach twists as she lunges at the pixies, grabbing one and plunging it down towards the water. If only she had her wand...If only... "You little shits," she murmurs, losing her usual class as her eyes droop and she starts making swings at them. Never has she felt so useless, but why should she assume this would happen? Why would she have any reason to suspect Mia was of any sort of magic? No, Mia is a Muggle- simple as. "I am so sorry, Mia. I shouldn't have thrown the other one." Is there any point in pretending she doesn't know what they are? -that she isn't a witch? Is there? Divya doesn't seem to think so.

"Have you dealt with them before?" Mia asks, aware that she should probably be acting a little more freaked out here than she is. But this is Divya, and she's a witch - should she just tell her? The pixie in her hand is chattering away at her in Fae, but she blocks it out and bats at another that's still fluttering around her sleeve. This would be so much easier if she could just talk to them and threaten them away, but how does she explain knowing Fae without being fae? She'll see how much Divya admits to her question and then decide, she thinks. And if she gets a bad reaction, well. There's a portal somewhere here. She doesn't have to stay.

A small pain strikes her. With that question, she cannot begin to deny that her friend sees the creatures too. Confusion wells up in her eyes as she pauses momentarily in shock. "I have- I have, yes. It's a long story, Mia," she tells her, voice a bit shaky as she reaches above the other girl to swat one of the pixies down. "We can talk about it later." Her tone is firmer and more dismissive this time, trying to channel the person who is always squabbling with her mother about her status and putting up protective shields. There are spells for this, she knows as much. It will be fine.

Divya's honesty, evasive as she's being, is enough to make Mia's mind up, and she nods once, sharply. This is a bad idea but- fuck it. Mia trusts Div, as much as she can let herself trust anyone, and it'd be a lie if she said she didn't wish she could just be open about, well, everything. With someone. It still leaves the problem of what to say. "Don't freak out," she warns, not quite able to remove the hesitation from her voice. Then she snaps her fingers twice to get the attention of the pixies (it only half works), speaking sharply in Fae to the one in her hand. She doesn't say much, really; mostly just making it clear to them what she is and what she'll do to them if they don't leave them be.

Her arms immediately fold over her chest as a set of her fingertips rest on her parted lips in awe as she watches over her friend. Mia has always been so beautiful and such a...mystical person. Div has admired her forever and now to see this- whatever this is- is overwhelming to her senses. Her eyes go wide, mouth turned into a little 'O.' "What are you doing?" she pipes in after a minute of watching her speak in some foreign, unrecognizable language.

It takes a few more threats and a thin layer of frost over the pixie in her hand, but eventually the swarm starts to dissipate. "I speak fae," she says with a noncommittal shrug. She doesn't actually admit to what she is, yet - there's still a (very big) part of her that's terrified Divya will hear moon fae and freak. Moon and unseelie fae don't tend to have the best reputation, after all. And what if she says she's a changeling and Divya asks what happened to the actual Mia Hopkins? Mia doesn't even know what her parents did with the baby they switched her for. "I threatened them. You know they've been shouting obscenities at us for ages? I was trying to pretend I didn't notice but- guess that didn't work." A pause, then, "So this means your Scottish boarding school is Hogwarts, I'm guessing?"
