Scott wakes up with the sun, as usual, and tries quietly heading to the common room.
Scott finishes what's on his plate.
"What do you think of us so far?"
"You seem like a decent batch. Smaller than previous years."
Professor Slughorn arrives at the Great Hall, beaming his usual beam.
Another one of the first years seems to have woken up.
He smiles at students at all the other tables, and stops to talk to one of the Ravenclaw first years before coming to sit.
"Good morning. I hope everyone slept well."
"I did," Nyle says, nodding approvingly. "Yourself?"
"Very restful. What about you?"
He looks at his fellow first years.
And then someone else arrives.
And passes by the table pretty quickly to go talk to Professor Slughorn about something, apparently, waving at Scott on the way.
He waves back!
"...Who is that?"
"That's Sadde! You remember Sadde."
"I know what Sadde looks like, MacDougall. That's not Sadde."
Nyle declines to comment on this.
And Sadde returns in a bit and takes a seat beside Scott, waving at her housemates again cheerfully.
"Hi! So I guess I'm gonna have to be in the boys' dorms."
"That's too bad. Do you have to be a boy the whole time there?"
"What? That doesn't make any sense. You're Woods?"
"Only while I'm sleeping, and yeah, I'm Woods."
"...is that makeup?"
"I don't understand why you would want to look like a girl."
"Why would you want to look like a boy?"
"Because I am a boy..?"
"How do you know you're a boy?"
"I am a boy, that's just how it is. I guess I don't know whether you're a boy or a girl, but you have to be one of those."
"Well sure you may be a boy and that may just be how it is but you must have found that out somehow, otherwise you're just making stuff up. How did you find it out?"
