Twas a lonely night for Raivis! Okay, not really. He actually liked getting out of the classes, surrounded by students, and retreating to the ever so calm Hufflepuff dorm. Really, Raivis was glad he was placed in Hufflepuff...he didn't want the expectations of a Ravenclaw(honestly, he just wasn't good enough in some subjects!), he certainly wasn't brave enough fr Gryffindor(and not ashamed to admit it! ...At least, not afraid to admit it to himself), and Slytherin...erm, Raivis just couldn't see himself in that house, not at all. He would never fit in. So, Hufflepuff was a welcoming home! The House's yellow theme was night too, Raivis always thought it a calming colour. So, sitting quietly in a chair, a blanket on his lap, and a book over that, Raivis made a contented sigh and leaned back in the chair.

Raivis didn't mind the other Hufflepuffs as much as the students from other houses, Hufflepuffs just had...less 'spunk', to say. They seemed kinder and usually calmer...some were dim, some were bright, but for the most part, Raivis could get along with any of them. He glanced around the room, finding it empty though...most people preferred to go outside, but Raivis wanted to stay in, during his time off...he would wait for someone to come in, and maybe try and strike up a conversation. If he was lucky, he'd find another student with an interest in Arithmancy, or even Ancient Runes, or Herbology. Raivis enjoyed those classes quite a bit.

So, letting out a little yawn, Raivis buried his nose in his book and waited, though he didn't think he'd be too disappointed if he was left alone. But perhaps the company of someone would be nice.

Einar sighed as he sat down on one of the reading chairs in the Hufflepuff common room. He had a book on Ancient Runes with him and some paper for notes. He needed to read it for his class, but he didn’t mind that fact. He enjoyed Ancient Runes and even though this version was a bit different from the runes found in his home country, he still found them easy.

He didn’t pay much attention to the boy he was sitting near. He vaguely knew him from around the common room as another foreign exchange student. His name began with an R… Rabbis, Ravtis…something along those lines. The other boy always seemed pretty quiet and nervous so he never interacted with him before. He didn’t think that was going to change this night, since he was also reading and Einar appreciated the change to read without being bothered.

    After a long day of classes, Elise went back to the Hufflepuff common room. Though most people went outside around this time, she was feeling like having a night in right now. The prospect of curling up in one of the comfortable chairs made a smile appear on her face.

    The common room was relatively empty, just a few students reading in some chairs. She herself did still have some reading for Herbology to do, so she figured she might as well join them. She grabbed her copy of One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi and flopped herself down in a chair next to the two boys.

    It didn’t take long for Leopold, her cat, to find his way to her lap and curl up in it. She took a moment to pet his soft, curly fur before she opened her book and started reading. Her attention didn’t stay with the text for very long though. There were two of her housemates that she hadn’t met yet right in front of her. As the social being she was, she should at least try to say hi.

    She lowered her book and put a friendly smile on her face. “Hi. Does one of you have a quill that I could borrow?” Yes, she did have quills of her own, but she could pretend she had left them up in her room for now. And with Leopold on her lap, she wouldn’t be going anywhere in the near future anyway.

Raivis was a bit nervous with the two others in the room...well, to be honest, the plan to go up and just talk to someone had almost already failed, because Raivis was pretty sure he wasn't going to be able to even stand up and say hi. He peeked up every few seconds, testing his courage, seeing if he had gotten brave enough to stand and say hello...no. Nope, he surely had not! Raivis hid behind his book and flushed a bit, heart thumping a bit faster at the thought of really getting out of his seat and introducing himself to one of the others...but luckily for him...it seemed one of them was going to speak!

As the girl inquired about a quill, Raivis set down his book and started shuffling through his bag, looking to see if he could find a spare quill to give her. He knew he had one...somewhere. It was a matter of where though; Raivis hadn't been keeping his bag very organized lately, not bothering to do so after finishing his homework and just going to relax instead. He shuffled around quickly, hoping for this to be a good ice breaker- but no. Raivis held in a squeak of pain as he found a quill- found it by the tip stabbing his finger. A little, slightly strangled noise escaped his lips before he held the rest of the yelp in. reaching in carefully with his other hand, Raivis took the quill from his bag and bit his lip, eye twitching in an attempt to not start crying. He held out the quill without a word...though he swore his face must have looked silly, trying not to tear up and all. The girl had a cute, friendly smile! But still, stabbing your finger on a quill did not feel good in the least! The other boy had a sort of...very calm face, but he didn't look scary, so Raivis was okay with them both! He'd seen them around, but never really talked to them. Raivis was just...shy. He attempted to wave and smile at the other boy, hoping to get him to talk too, since Raivis really had no idea what to say at this point.

Einar did not pay attention to the girl who sat down next to him and that other kid. She was yet another housemate who he didn’t know. He really was going to have to try and learn his housemates’ names or actually be social with them. It was such a pain, though. It was easier to just read a book and if he did want company, there was always Lukas. He just had to make sure that Lukas didn’t learn how small his circle of friends really was. He was sure the elder boy would give him a hard time about it.

He glanced up when the girl spoke to them. He glanced at the cat in her lap and figured that was the reason she wasn’t just getting her own like anyone else would. He knew how cats could be when they were relaxing. His family had a couple of barnyard cats at home that he played with when he was younger. Unfortunately, he didn’t have a spare, but he saw the other boy riffling through his belongings, so he figured it would all work out in the end. He glanced back down at the book, but looked up again when he heard a squeak of pain.

He glanced at the boy and realized he must have found his quill the hard way. He had never been stabbed by a quill, but he figured it must hurt, like a paper cut, not badly enough were a person could whine, though he still would if around the right people, but still pretty sore. When the boy waved at him, he nodded in return and figured this was a good time to speak up as well and finally learn some names. “Are you alright?” Einar asked the boy, a bit concerned but mostly because it was an easy topic.

    Elise watched as the brown-haired boy rummaged through his bag. A small grin tugged at her lips as he appeared to have trouble finding one. She recognized the disorderly state of that bag, as her own was often in the same state. Suddenly there was a squeak from the boy right before he pulled a quill out of his bag.

    Elise took the quill as boy silently held it out for her. “You didn’t hurt yourself too bad, did you?” She asked, a mild concern in her voice. The other boy seemed to want to know the same thing as well. She’d hate it if he had gotten a cut for something she wanted. From where she was sitting it didn’t look too bad though. No blood or anything. Though if it did turn out to hurt, she could offer to try a healing spell on it, perhaps.

    “Oh, thanks for the quill,” Elise said, almost forgotten to thank him. She grabbed some parchment so she could write down notes later. “Some of the subjects here really are tough, huh?” She said in an attempt to keep the conversation going. The boys both seemed a bit shy, so she felt like it was up to her to prevent the situation from going awkward.

    She glanced at the book in her hands. Herbology wasn’t that tough for the Belgian though. She rather liked the subject. She saw the white-haired boy had a book on Ancient Runes. Now that seemed like a hard class. She didn’t take it herself though, so she really wouldn’t know. But it looked difficult enough.

Raivis managed to quell that urge to cry, and shook his hand in the air for a moment. He pulled his hand up to his face and poked out a finger, looking at it carefully. Hmm...definitely a small hole. But...there wasn't any blood. Just a small flesh wound. Raivis sighed out in relief and put his hand ever so gently down on the top of his book, looking over at his fellow Hufflepuffs. They hadn't laughed at his misfortune! This made them both okay in Raivis' book...he certainly didn't like being laughed at, so he assumed they both must have been kind, empathetic souls who understood his fragility. It was nice.

"Am okay, am okay...don't think it cut me," he said, his voice sounding just a tad overdramatic. He looked up at them and tried to smile again, lifting his book up out of his lap and holding it to his chest, a bit protectively. He was still rather nervous of the two, even if he liked that they weren't mean. "You are welcome- o-oh, ja, I think some are..." he glanced over at the fair haired boy, "I think...potions is the hardest...what about you?" he looked at the girl after looking at the boy, hoping they both disliked potions as well, and they'd have something to bond over. That would make things go so much easier! Raivis would have plenty of stories to tell about his failed potion attempts..."I-I think, um...the best class is Herbology.." he added, much quieter, with a shy little smile. He liked that class very much! It was one he never had problems with, he had quite the green thumb. Perhaps they could talk about that too! Of course, Raivis also took Arithmancy and Ancient Runes- but he didn't want to talk about that. Those classes just made him seem like a geek, plus he rarely found other students who enjoyed the classes as much as Raivis did.

Einar nodded and knew he was basically trapped into talking to these two. They seemed friendly enough and at least the girl seemed to be a bit of a talker. If he was going to have to talk to people he didn’t know, it was always easier with someone who could talk a lot. He would be able to just listen and put a few words in.

“Some classes can be difficult.” He said. He was thinking of arithmancy in particular. He didn’t know what he did wrong in that subject. He would start off strong, but he usually would get the wrong answer. Thankfully it was only an elective course and he was able to drop it in his fourth year.

When the boy mentioned potions, he nodded in agreement, “Potions is definitely not one of my favorites.” He had a few horror stories from that class as well and had made his potions either explode or fizzle out enough times to know he would never want to go into that field. He was looking forward to dropping that course as well.

He thought for a moment about his favorite class, but two came to mind. “I don’t mind herbology, but I prefer Care of Magical Creatures…or Ancient Runes, either one is good.” He then thought about Divination but figured naming two classes were enough for right now. Besides, Divination wasn’t fun or his favorite, he just found it easy. “What about you?” He asked, looking at the girl, trying to be social.

    Elise was glad the boy hadn’t hurt himself and gave him another smile. He still seemed a bit shaken, but perhaps that was how he naturally was. Both boys did seem a bit shy.

    “Actually... I rather like potions,” She said. She knew a lot of people seemed to dislike the class, and there had been a fair share of small disasters in the classroom due to failed potions. But for Elise the class wasn’t that hard at all. Potions had a lot in common with cooking. And cooking was something the Belgian excelled at. So potion making just came naturally to her. So far she hadn’t really found someone that agreed with her though. Too bad, it would be nice to have someone to talk about it, who did something else than complain about it.

    “Herbology is alright,” She wasn’t a star in Herbology, but she got good enough grades to pass. It was a fun class, and sometimes she got the idea to try out a certain herb in a new recipe. Overall it was pretty useful. “I also like Care of Magical Creatures. Or Charms,” She mused. Though in Care of Magical Creatures it did depend on the animal they were working with if she liked it. For example, that lesson on Blast-Ended Skrewts had so been uncalled for. When were they even going to encounter those in real life? As far as she knew the breed was created here on Hogwarts and only lived in the Forbidden Forest. And she wasn’t planning on going in there anytime soon. Though apart from the viciously dangerous animals, the class was something she looked forward to.

    It then came to mind that she didn’t even knew the names of her new conversation partners yet. She felt like an introduction was in place here. “By the way, what are your names? I’m Elise.”

[[ Crappy reply, gogogo. ]]

Raivis blinked when he realized he hadn't introduced himself...scratching his cheek, careful of his jabbed finger, he decided it'd probably be a good idea to tell his fellow Hufflepuffs his name(really, it was rather silly to be in the same house as them but not actually know them!), and so he looked over a tad shyly and introduced himself, "O-oh, um, my name is Raivis, is nice to meet you both...?" he held back the 'I think', for he wasn't quite sure yet if liked these two! He hadn't had the time to know if they were...what was the word, 'not suspicious or possibly murders'. Yes, whatever the word for that, that was what he was trying to think of. But, he was going to go out on a limb and assume they weren't murders. ...They'd more likely be in Slytherin if they were. "A-am not so great at charms, or Care of Magical Creatures- th-the creatures are scary, you know? They are...w-well, um, scary."
