To Hunt a Wizard [Remus and Rebecca, late March]


It could have been any customer, but instead it was Remus - head almost touching the doorframe, a magnificently gangly thing, all legs and tweed and freckles and politeness. He stooped a little as if in sympathy, and gave a small motion with his hand that could have been doffing a non-existent hat out of courtesy.

"Hello Rebecca," he said pleasantly, "you don't happen to have a spare wizard in the back, do you? Young bloke, sort of pretty, about so high-" he indicated Izzy's height with his hand, "black hair, black nails, earrings, hoodies...young people these days." That was the last comment, tailing off a little as Remus shook his head. Punk had never been that pretty, and glam had never been that black: he certainly didn't understand it. And it was certainly an incongruous comment, considering Remus' own apparent age.

"He seems to be tracking magical people and items, so I thought he might have stumbled across your cheery little shop." Dropping some of the academic, bumbling affectation, Remus gazed directly into Rebecca's eyes, and spoke firmly, but quietly, keeping himself on his side of the counter so he hopefully didn't come across as bullying. "He appears to be untrained and doesn't know what he's doing. I'd like to make sure no one gets hurt."

[For Hex] First dates.

He'd had the date marked in his diary, a battered leather thing that he kept in his satchel. Saturday the 27th had 'shopping' marked in a small, neat hand for as a catch-all for preparations, and so Remus had gone out to markets and wandered London and again found it a far more bustling, alive and angry city than he remembered. For that night he had simply written 'attempting to have a life!!!' and underlined it several times.

Because he was.

It had been a hard stretch, recovering from his transformation the previous week: he still felt tired a lot of the time, and his strength came and went in unpredictable surges, but he could usually summon what he needed through simple, stubborn strength of will and deal with the exhaustion later. That had always been his habit: to deal with it later. The night found him preparing dinner in the kitchen of his large apartment, all cold white walls and bland beige carpet and modern black leather couches, the better to show off the obscenely large television that he didn't watch that much and the even larger windows that opened out to the city, which he did. London looked gorgeous at night, free of the cool grey of winter wear to take on light and colour.

And with the sauce simmering and the pasta ready to go, Remus enjoyed a glass of water and waited for Hex to arrive and use the intercom thing downstairs so he could buzz him up.

Wizarding World(s) Discussion


Basically here's the spot for rambling and discussion about aspects of magical canons and how they all interact. I've brought in Remus with some of the bare bones of HP canon as can be seen from his wiki page.

But essentially:
-There's a school for his type of wizard in Scotland, as well as schools internationally. You use wands and spells are in Latin, suggesting a classical/imperial colonial aspect. Remus would be vaguely aware other types of magic exist.
-There's Diagon Alley, Knockturn Alley and the Ministry in London. But overall the wizard population (of his sort of wizard) is quite small and its footprint is quite minor.
-There was a civil conflict involving Voldemort and the DEs in the 1970s. Generally his type of wizard is a bit Dickensian and backward in terms of social thinking, with innate conservatism and a lot of bias against werewolves, vampires, gays, etc.
-Lycanthropy is still regarded as a disease. He can't control his shifts and could infect anyone when transformed. Even while not transformed, a bite or a scratch would make someone more likely to prefer red meat, for instance.
