Evander Braelin-VonHaus

Saved by the belt

Recommended Posts

Evander Braelin-VonHaus

Ev had gotten all of his affairs in order. There was a letter on his bed telling everyone not to touch his stuff, and a note to his family telling them he loved them. Sashay was in the Owlery. 

And now it was time to probably die. 

Walking up behind @Killian Dracel, Ev gripped his trousers on either side and tugged hard downwards... to no avail. All of the blood drained from his face. 
Yup. Doom.

Killian Dracel

Of course, Killian had been standing there, laughing with @Damaris Denton and @Everly Cantrell. He was telling an animated story, repeating for what seemed like the hundredth time that he had punched a first year who tried to assault him ( @Julian Banagher). "The stupid kid thought he could take me on?" he boasted, laughing. "What an idiot. If @Professor Corelli-Rose hadn't come along, I would have destroyed that little rodent."

 

He was unaware of the kid coming up behind him before he felt the sharp tug on his trousers. The belt clung to his hips, and he turned, swinging his elbow around and clipping the idiot in the head. Oops.

 

"What the bloody hell are you doing?!" he growled at the Ravenclaw. "Did your mum drop you on your head as a baby?"

Probably. There were a lot of us.

Ev yelped embarrassingly loud as he took an elbow to the head at a surprising speed, almost knocking him off his feet. He kind of wished it had knocked him out, as that would make this exchange significantly less awkward, and more than likely less painful. 

He simultaneously squared his feet off in a karate stance and raised his hands by his head in surrender, it just happened to also conveniently make defending his head easier. 

"It was a dare?" He offered quietly, fairly aware of what his Auntie Darcie's nephew was capable of doing to him.

Damaris Denton

"Merlin, I swear these ickles have been getting dumber every year," Damaris snickered as Killian recounted how a first year had tried to punch him. 

 

She blinked as she noticed the Ravenclaw ickle who had tried to pants Killian. "You better keep moving ickle," she hissed at @Evander Braelin-VonHaus. "You don't want what happened to the last ickles to happen to you."

Evander turned his attention to @Damaris Denton, "What happened to the last ickles?"
Stupid. Curious. Ravenclaw.

Dante, who had been walking by on the way to somewhere else and not really wanting to get involved with the older boy who had turned some of his year mates into wall pieces slowed carefully.

 

He was curious, but eves dropping was better than asking sometimes.

Killian Dracel

"A dare?!" he bellowed, and looked around the Great Hall to see who the real culprit might've been. He narrowed his eyes then at Evander, whom he had recognized from his family's extended friends and family. This was one of the VonHaus children whom he found to be rather... irritating.

 

"You were dared to pull my pants down?" he said, crossing his arms, looking every bit as menacing as he possibly could. It was quite a look. "Are you touched in the head? Or are you this stupid all on your own? Haven't you got anything better to do than be set up to lose house points? Or worse, an eye?"

 

He glanced over at Damaris, and then back to the ickle. "Bloody hell. I ate them.

 

"Tell me, Evander--right?--do you wear a belt like a self-respecting man should?"

To Ev's credit, he did not flinch when Killian bellowed in his face. He was far too accustomed to his very loud family to be phased by volume. He did, however, cringe a little when the older boy refocused on him and narrowed his eyes. That was way scarier than loud noises. 

He almost laughed when he was warned about losing an eyes, because that's something a parent would say, and he was pretty sure the Killian was so far from wanting to be parental right now that it was comical. The first year did have some survival instincts intact, however and contained himself. 

"... Evander--right?--do you wear a belt like a self-respecting man should?"

The young Ravenclaw gulped visibly. Normally, yes. He would be wearing a belt. But being as he stupidly chucked the only one he had brought with him into the bonfire on the first night, and hadn't worked up the courage to write home explaining that so he could get a new one, he was not. 

"Yes?" 

It wasn't a lie, exactly. He just wasn't wearing one right now. It seemed like the right answer, so he thought he'd try his luck.

Dante Agretera

Oh no. Dante's face dropped from a few feet away, he tried to figure out how this would actually go, and he could only see downsides everywhere he looked. He wasn't really the loud obnoxious sort, but he was basically a healer/DPS when it came to interactions with other people.

 

And @Evander Braelin-VonHaus was his roommate, he was stuck for a moment of indecision as he imagined the many ways that this could actually turn out.

 

He decided to pull agro for just a moment.

 

Dante slammed into the prefect @Killian Dracelfrom an acute angle. He didn't expect his barely 36 kg to do anything, but it might be a distraction at best. Maybe some part of him was willing to tank.

Killian stood like a brick building when the other first year slammed into him. He looked down at the pipsqueak, and tilted his head. "Yesss?" he said, rather exaggeratedly. Taking in the color of his robes, he noted that he was in the same house as Evander. "Yet another moron who doesn't know how to mind their business. For the love of Merlin.

 

"Do you both want me to hang your pants from the Quidditch hoops, or what? Do that again," he said to Dante, "and I'll do just that. Evander--man--of all the people to cross, by now you should know not to cross me. Get your boyfriend in line before I get really peeved.

 

"Get gone. Now."

Ev watched in horror as his roommate slammed ineffectually into the terrifying Prefect that was Killian Dracel. Trying to pants the Slytherin had been unwise, but a calculated risk being as he was a friend of the family. What @Dante Agretera had done was brave, but very dangerous. Kid had no leverage. 

Not sure why he was blushing at the word boyfriend, the Ravenclaw grabbed his roommate by the collar and started dragging him out of the hall, not daring to look back. 

That had been way too close for comfort.

Damaris could only gape as one of the Ravenclaw first years attempted to slam into Killian. "Ravenclaws are so dumb," she said, rolling her eyes. Every year, all they did was confirm her suspicions that they were a bunch of birdbrains. 

 

"Yeah, get out of here!" she called after them when they decided to retreat.

Dante didn't really struggle with the drag out of the fight, he was still prepared to throw down and end up shattered. It would have been exactly the sort of thing Apollo or Artemis would have done. Though, they would probably be better at actually winning than a small eleven year old boy would.

 

Before he turned to walk on his own he shot a look back over his shoulder and made a few specific sign gestures; nothing outwardly threatening or directed at the Slytherins, just a simple prayer for the vengeance of the twins.
