Not at all. But I’m adamant about that.
Why are you such a stick in the mud? I’ll bribe you, Riviera. Bribe. I mean, honestly, what’s the point of having all that power if you’re not gonna abuse it? It’s immoral and unethical.
It was a group vote. I mean, I don’t really try to tell the others how to do things. Smile and nod really. I mean, I’m not the one you have to worry about.
In the words of Desmond Tutu, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”
Doesn’t matter that you just prance around and let the others do what they please. You’re very much associated with them and that’s why you’re an enemy, Prior.
Of course you will. Why wouldn’t you? It was worth a shot though, right? I just wanted to offer chocolate and a teddy is all.
And that’s why it’s highly suspect of you. I’m on your Gryffinprat Black List. You’re trying to be nice. It’s all very suspicious.
Aw, come on, Lia. That isn’t true. If I do recall correctly, it was one of your lot who drugged me and left me in a mountain of teddies. Therefore, I’m not the one who can’t be trusted.
Yeah, and what Prior? We’ll damn well do it again too!
Really? That’s it? Even if I - give you chocolate and a teddy?
Don’t give me that— You lot cannot be trusted under any circumstances.
I don’t ever plan on using my authority to get you out of trouble, Lia. Let’s just crush that dream now.
The great thing about us, though, is that nothing ever goes according to plan, right?
Well, I’d try to persuade you into otherwise, but I know better. Seriously though, what exactly did we do to warrant such hostility?
As a 6th year Gryffindor boy, I am obligated to hate you.
They’re just the facts of life.
Not in the slightest. I’m Head Boy next year, and I’m ready for all that entails.
Head Boy? Really? I’m suddenly very glad you and I are the very best of friends, Rivera.
Yes, you- uh, you’ve made that explicitly clear.
Ah, so you’ve finally given up on me?
You’ve done nothing wrong? Apologies if I have trouble buying that, Villace. It’s okay though. I’m only teasing. I admire your - rebellious nature
Do you now? Perhaps that’ll have to change with you and your Gryffinprat mates being at the end of one of my shenanigans?
