The Three Broomsticks



TTB

The fire crackles as you take your seat, a smile on your face. The air hums with the clanking of glasses and the conversations of dozens of people. You smell the rich scent of butterscotch and maple; the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. In short, all the hustle and bustle of Hogmeade's, and often Hogwarts', favourite place to come. You sit, waiting to place your order. "Butterbeer and Firewhisky are one of our more popular options but you pick what you want," says the bartender.

Oberon and Etta

He walked into the pub and found a seat at a table by himself, and opened up a newspaper. The news these days was never... pleasant, but it was best to keep abreast of it, so one didn't remain too ignorant to the goings on in this world.

It was summer and Etta was passing through the pub for some food. Etta didn't notice Oberon was there until she passed his table where she paused. "Professor Fox?" She asked. Etta had never really talked to him throughout the school year, maybe a smile in the corridor, but she thought he was nice.

He looks up from his paper to see the Transfiguration professor. "Etta!" He says warmly, putting his paper down. "Good to see you."

"It is! I certainly didn't expect to run into anyone today," Etta asked, her eyes flicking towards the paper, painfully reminded of everything going on and pursed her lips before looking away. "How are you?"


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 12:44, July 13, 2019 (UTC)

He sees her look at the paper and shook his head. "Well, I'm better than the Wizarding world at any rate," he said with a grimace. "Would you like to take a seat?"

Etta hesitated before accepting the suggestion. "As long as I'm not interrupting," she said as she sat down. "And–you're right. I think a lot of people are better than the wizarding world. It makes me miss Hogwarts. Always a safe bubble in there, you know?"


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 12:55, July 13, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "You aren't," he assured her. "And I think that's what Hogwarts does best... we do what we can to protect the young ones in this country from the outside world. Though.... you can tell the older students are aware and wanting to fight back."

"I don't exactly blame them. It's their right," Etta said with a shrug. When the idea of a march was brought up, she was supportive of it–100%. "I suppose it's rather frustrating. Being expected to do NEWTs and OWLs when all of this is going on," she said with a smile, though her tone was light and was making a joke.


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 13:13, July 13, 2019 (UTC)

He grinned. "It's why I bring the older students into the more dangerous Greenhouses. Let them work out their frustration in a positive way."

Etta ended up laughing at his response, short and sweet, her nose scrunching up. "I'm sure they have the best of time," Etta said. She knew some students didn't really like herbology (Etta didn't really like it herself in Durmstrang but she didn't like any class. Gosh she wished she was a better student). "I don't know if I can say the same for Transfiguration. It's very technical."


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 14:27, July 14, 2019 (UTC)

He thought through that for a moment, then shook his head. "Nope, I'm coming up empty."

Etta smiled slightly before shrugging. "Oh well, such is life," she said. "It's such a necessity for so many things out there that we just have to deal with it all. I like transfiguration, even though I know so many people find it boring. It's a good class to teach. And students usually get the hang of it, just takes a bit longer for some."


Oberon 2

"Which I'm sure delivers some very satisfying 'break through' teaching moments when your students finally get it for the first time."

Etta beamed as she nodded over to him. "Exactly," she said, "you always see it in their face when everything clicks together and it makes all the stress of teaching, well, worth it."

"I'd drink to that if I had one," he said with a chuckle.

Etta wasn't much of a drinker but she could make exceptions. Just for one. "Well, why don't we order one?" She offered, her eyes turning to look for a waiter/waitress.


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 02:03, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

"I never turn down a beverage," he said, barely managing to avoid extra thoughts at the end of his sentence. They got a waiter's attention. "Butterbeer, please," he ordered for himself.

"Same for me," Etta said as she smiled over at the waiter. Butterbeer wasn't her favourite. A lot of things in England wasn't her 'favourite'. Like tea, she still didn't quite understand tea. But butterbeer was likable enough. "So do you have any plans for the summer?"


Oberon 2

 – 02:43, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

"When I'm not making sure the Greenhouses at Hogwarts are being looked after, I'm caring for my niece and nephews when my sister is working," he said grinning that broad, proud uncle smile.

"Even during summer? Guess I'm suddenly glad I'm teaching transfiguration," she said. "Oh really? That's so nice of you. How are old are they all?"

 – 03:08, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

He smiled. "I enjoy doing it. It's nothing to pity me for," he said with a chuckle. "Jessie is four, and Caden and Ryder are still babies... not quite a year yet."

Etta was never quite sure if she felt sad when she heard about children. Another coworker of theirs, Teagan, had a child recently and of course Etta had sent over a gazillion of things. Turned up with flowers and other gifts. She was always so happy when she heard about people with children but there was always that small little ounce of sadness at the back of her mind. Reminded her of her own loss so many years before. "Oh, they're so young. I'm sure they're a joy to be around."


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 11:51, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "They are indeed." He briefly considered asking if she had children, but decided that may not be appropriate.

"And so is it just you and your sister? With the addition of the children, of course," Etta asked, trying to get to know the other better.

 – 22:51, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "Yeah, my parents did things... a little differently," he said with an amused smile. "Mackenzie is ten years younger than I am."

"Ten? I've heard of worse," she said with a grin. "But it must have been nice for her to have a big brother looking out for her growing up."


Oberon 2

 – 23:30, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

He grinned. "We're very close. Do you have a family of some kind?"

Etta paused before shaking her head. “No, no it’s just me,” Etta said. “I’m an only child and my parents died a few years ago.”


Oberon 2

 – 23:46, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

"Ah, my condolences," he said. "No... special someone to perhaps bring some company to your life?"

”Oh, no it’s okay,” Etta said with a shrug before hearing the next question. Etta almost laughed. “No, no one. Not got a long time.” Not since her ex husband really. “But I have my work and my students to keep me going, you know?”


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 23:52, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "I feel much the same. Me, the plants and the kids... both my students and my family."

”It’s fulfilling,” Etta said with a smile, glad someone understands. “I really wouldn’t change it for the world.”

"Probably why many professors have such a long tenure. I mean, look at Nora. She's been teaching for... over fifteen years now, hasn't she?"

”Oh I wouldn’t know,” Etta said. “I’ve only been here for, oh...six years now? But she was here long before me.”


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 10:18, July 18, 2019 (UTC)

"Oh," he said. "With being Deputy Headmistress I guess I had just assumed your tenure was longer. My apologies."

Etta's brows slightly raised at that and her ears, though thankfully covered by her hair, turned a shade of red. "Yes, well, it's a lot longer than some of the other professors. Most don't seem to last more than a year or two."


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 11:19, July 18, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "I've heard that. The younger ones, usually, right? The ones right out of Hogwarts who come back to teach?"

"Usually," she agreed. "Which I think is sad. But they all have other aspirations that they stumble onto. I don't think any of them really know what they want to do so they return to what they feel comfortable with–Hogwarts. Which is a good thing and a bad thing. Of course, it's always rather strange treating your previous student as your colleague."


Oberon 2

Professor Fox Herbology Professor


 – 16:59, July 18, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "Flying back to the comfort zone, but in a different role... it's a very different vibe. Teaching is an entirely different profession from being a student."

”It is,” she agreed, “it’s a lot more different. Except it never seems to be. Especially to the students. Teaching is more behind the scenes.”

He nodded. "It's definitely more than just giving speeches and hoping someone on the other side is listening," he said with a laugh.

Etta laughed at this. She didn't think many listened to her classes or speeches or anything. "So how do you keep them focussed?"

He grinned. "Well, there's a natural consequence to that, as whatever they're working with will probably behave contrary to how they'd like, at which point I encourage them to ask a friend who was listening. They learn quick enough at that point."

"I suppose it's the problem with magical classes. If someone doesn't listen and mess up whatever they're doing, well...there can be dire consequences. There's a reason I never let anyone perform transfiguration spells on other students," she said as their drinks were slid in front of them. "So I suppose herbology is the only class you're interested in? Teaching wise."

He smiled a bit. "Well, that and Transfiguration were my best classes in school. But I hear that post is taken."

"I hear that too," Etta said with a flash of a grin, "though I wouldn't mind some competition or someone to work with if you ever get bored of herbology."

"Collaborating with a powerful woman," he said, pulling a face of deep thought, tapping his chin. He grinned. "That does sound appealing."

Etta burst into laughter at the compliment, certainly not expecting it. She forgot she could be considered powerful, especially as deputy but she never really felt it. It was just her job. “Oh, I wouldn’t say that,” she said when her laughter died down shortly after it started. “But thank you.”
