Cosette Mercier

Cosette had to go back and get her sketch book, she thought that she had it with her, but she didn’t. And going back to the common room, it was a long walk and she hated it. She didn’t mind being a Ravenclaw at all, but climbing all those stairs was not fun at all. But finally she was making her way back to meet Rad. It was nice to have a drawing friend that went here. Even if they were in different houses, it didn’t mean they were not allowed to talk and be friends. 

 

Rad was one of the first persons that she talked to, before coming to Hogwarts, and Cosette still didn’t talk to a lot of people. Which she didn’t mind at all, it was alright not talking to people that she didn’t get along with or even know that very well. She had Avery, Alvis, and Rad. That was more then enough. Not once did she think that she would have friends, but she did. It was a strange feeling, and they didn’t care that she was shy and barley talked or understand this place.

 

Cosette told Rad to meet her in the Trophy Room, that was one place she had not been since she got to Hogwarts, and while she didn’t care about winning or losing anything, she wondered what would be inside that room. 

 

“Rad!” She called out, as loud as her little voice would call out. Which was not loud for an eleven year old at all. She didn’t know if he was there or not, so she went to find a place to sit, which happened to be on the floor. And since it was so cold, she out on some leggings under her uniform and started to get her drawings out to show him, and she might even draw a little while she was here.

After their duel had ended (the win going happily to Cosette, who deserved it and any other wins she got, given the rough time she’d been having here), the two budding artists, one blue and one green, decided to meet up to share their drawings with one another— and perhaps to keep companionable silence while working on new ones. Rad thought this was an excellent plan; he trusted almost nobody to peer between the covers of his sketchbook, but somebody who obviously felt just as vulnerable as he did seemed like a good first step.

 

Cosette had needed to run back to the Ravenclaw Common Room (he got the sense that it was somewhere as high in the castle as the Slytherin Common Room was low), but first decided that they should meet up in the Trophy Room. Rad nodded his agreement; he hadn’t been there yet, and it might be fun to try to recreate the glitter of light on the reflective metal medals on paper.

 

Since he always carried his sketchbook with him, he had no need to return to his dormitory even though it was so close by. So instead he set off for the third floor to figure out where the heck the Trophy Room even was.

 

By the time he’d found it (having taken some very bad advice from a painting of the skinniest spider of a man he’d ever seen), Cosette was already returned from her mission upstairs, settled in with her drawings strewn about her. Smiling, Rad joined her on the floor amidst the glittering relics of days long gone. He placed his sketchbook out in front of him. “Kinda weird in here,” he commented, flipping the book open to the first page, the face of a wizard he’d seen in Crystal Fountain Park. “All these names of people who are probably old or dead.” Whoa, cool it with the morbid, kiddo. “So… can I see?”

When she made it back, she didn’t think it would take her a while to find the place, because it has been one place she had not walked into yet at Hogwarts. There was many of those places for Cosette, but she knew that she had time to explore. If she wanted to explore. 


Sitting down next to Rad, he was one person that Cosette didn’t mind showing her drawings to. Rad and Avery would be the only two that she would feel like she wasn’t a failure when it came to things. Looking around at what was around her, there was just trophies just everywhere. 

 

“They.. they might be… but I think.. think some are students… students now.” At least Cosette was thinking that since there was tournament and things like that,  things that were happening around the school that Cosette didn’t pay attention to. 

 

Taking out her sketch book, she saw her first photo she drew when she was at Hogwarts, it was at the dinner table and she drew what Hogwarts looked like from the boat. It made her smile, just a little. Remember how she felt before she got here, not knowing a lick of magic, and still not knowing much, but was getting a little better in time. 

 

“Yes…” She said as she handed over her sketch book. “This is… this is ones of all hogwarts… Hogwarts drawings.” She had many sketch books, the one where she drew to send home to her mother, and the one that she kept her for her.
