Samuel Aaron O'Reilly
canon or original
Sam, Sammy. He likes to make jokes of his last name, calling himself Sam O RLY.
March 3rd, 1959
inside ando u t PHYSICAL
casual, comfortable, cheerful
Samuel O'Reilly is not good looking at all, this can all be blamed on his heavy addiction to drugs. His teeth are rotten to the root, if you can ever consider those chompers to be teeth. His hair is straggly and dirty, mainly because he doesn't have the time to wash, he's to busy smoking up to bother with cleaning himself. His body is far from desirable, and he is actually as skinny as a twig, literally and his skin color, well, if it wasn't covered in dirt, he'd have a very close resemblance to a ghost. This is exactly what you'd expect of a drug dealer, but Samuel O'Reilly certainly does not have your average stoner look going for him. Actually, Samuel is a pretty damn sexy guy.
Surprisingly, the boy is hygenic beyond belief, and has a strong obsession with showering constantly, and because of this, he has managed to appear slightly less like the stoner that he is. Perhaps if he allowed layer after layer of dirt rest on his skin, one would be immediately clued into his bad habits, but instead, the only way you can tell that he does such illegal substances is from either hearing it by others, or just simply hearing him speak a word. With that, Samuel's body is always very clean, as is his hair, which he washes religiously because of his fear of lice. His mane is very thick, but not at all coarse, and is actually smoothe considering it's thickness. This is probably just because he is always in desperate need of lavishing his hair with shampoo and conditioner, even though some of his mates tell him that only women use conditioner. He personally prefers the smell of coconuts, but once again, his mates refuse to let him use the stuff, especially because he'll smell like a lady. Instead he just simply smells like a natural clean smell. As long as he was clean, Samuel would be cool with the way that he smelled. Hell, he's already out to find a shampoo and conditioner that smells like gilly weed so that he can smell like gilly weed but still be clean, and then when the adults ask him why he smells like weed, he can tell them that it's just his shampoo and conditioner, maybe that would throw them off of his trail.
As far as his hair is concerned, it's usually just one big mess. But that's how Samuel likes it. Unlike some of his friends.. -cough- Horacio -cough-, he doesn't really care to persistantly keep it all tidy and in the same place at all times. Though his mind isn't entirely all there at all times, unlike some people, he sure as hell knows that there are such things are gravity, and humidity, and movement in the world, so therefore he doesn't plan on trying his hardest to have his hair stick to one point, instead he just lets it be. As long as it's clean, Samuel really couldn't care to bother much more with it. So, to describe his hair, one would probably describe it as handsomely discheveled. It is naturally curly, so if it gets any longer then two inches, it curls at the ends. In the very front, he has a very strong cowlick that forces his hair to stay out of his face, and no matter how hard he tries, or no matter how much product he uses, it refuses to fall before his face. The only way to get it to fall in front of his face is to grow it long enough to the point where it goes straight up in the air, but due to gravity it falls in front of his eyes. Though, he knows well enough that he'd look like a freak if he kept it that way, so instead, Samuel prefers to keep his hair at a semi-tameable and comfortable short length. What he prefers usually isn't always what he gets, so for the most part, it is kept rather long with his chocolate locks falling back into into waves.
Samuel's face wasn't very complicated, and instead it appeared fairly simple. Whether you knew him or not, if you cared to look him dead on in the face, you'd immediately notice that he was a pretty laid back type of person who didn't expect to put any harm on anyone. His eyes are fairly dark, kind of close to the color of his hair, though that all depends on the season seeing as his hair tends to lighten a bit during the summer. So, his hair during the winter is exactly the same color as his eyes. They are very thin, especially when he smiles or when he is smoking pot. Below them are tiresome bags, he has always had a problem with sleeping, either because he's always on something, or he's just to paranoid to get to much shut eye. They aren't unbearingly ugly, instead they kind of fit his face fairly well. On the sides of his eyes, Samuel has a few wrinkles that form on the outside of his eyes, especially when he smiles or he is squinting, he calls them his eye dimples. The eyebrows just above his smiling eyes aren't to thick, and aren't to thin, they are just the perfect shape for a male. If Samuel had thick eyebrows, he'd probably be waving them to get rid of the catepillars, just because he is slightly picky when it comes to his face. His nose is neither long, nor is it short, though it does kind of go out like a triangle, being slightly bigger at the bottom. His teeth are very straight, and considering his mischievious ways, it's hard to imagine that this boy has ever managed to keep his teeth as straight as they are. The lips surrounding his smile aren't the thickest, and instead, when he smiles, his top lip tends to disappear a bit, it is a little unproportionate compared to his bottom lip. Samuel's face is fairly structured though, with strong cheekbones and a set jawline that is preferably kept a little stubbly with facial hair, he figures that it makes him appear more like a man if he keeps the slightest bit of facial hair there.
His body probably isn't the most muscular of the bunch, but he is fairly healthy considering his addictions. Standing at a solid 6'0", Samuel doesn't entirely tower over some of the students at school, but he is much taller then the majority. Samuel isn't the type of person to use his height to his advantage though, actually, he is always kind of seen as the weak one. His friends mostly take advantage of his vulnerability, which is usually just simply by him being stoned out of his mind, so when people get to know Samuel, they don't even really take him for the beefiest person. Not that in reality he is beefy at all, his submissive personality just makes him seem a lot smaller then he appears. If you were to look at him from first glance, you'd probably feel slightly intimidated, but once you get to know him, or even spend a single hour with him, those feelings would go away and you'd realise just how much of a teddy bear he is, regardless of his physical strength. His shoulders are pretty wide compared to the rest of the body, and he blames that on 'heavy lifting' which mainly means that he has to carry his friends back upstairs when he gets a little to out of hand, though more then once Samuel has been the one carried back up to his dorm. His arms are fairly built, and some veins seem apparent on his forearms. He blames this on how often he uses his hands.. to roll joints, obviously. That being his said, his hands are also rather big, though he always admired people who had big hands because it always meant that they'd be good at doing hard work, as far as Samuel was concerned anyways.
Though he isn't one to exercise, Samuel had been blessed with a rather nicely sculpted chest, stomach and back. His hip bones stick out nicely like most healthy boys' do. Perhaps if it weren't for the amount of drugs that he did, Samuel would have gained quite a bit of weight, but luckily healthy well nourished bodies seem to run in the family, well on his father side anyways. Depending on the day, or if he'd been outside for days in a row, Samuel's skin changes in tones. When he is at Hogwarts, it's usually much paller then when he spends the time at home. Why? Well because at Hogwarts he barely even bothers to leave the castle, but back at home, he is constantly seen out in the driveway trying to fix his dad's car or his motorcycle. Handy work like that is also what kept Samuel's body toned up, especially because he's not so good at the handy work so he has to spend more time out working on the things he plans on fixing. His legs are probably slightly less built compared to his torso, but they aren't unproportionate or anything, instead his body kind of goes together fairly well. Walking isn't his favourite thing to do, so naturally it only makes sense for him to not like running either unless someone is chasing him, or Samuel figures that it might be something that will benefit him, like a quick drug run. In those cases, he's usually full on ready to jet set to his supplier.
Style isn't something that comes naturally to Samuel O'Reilly, it's not because he doesn't know how to dress, but instead it's just because he simply prefers to keep things simple. Samuel hates trying to keep up with the crowd, he just simply doesn't have the time or the persistance. Instead, he prefers to just have his own style, not that anyone would really bother to imitate his personal style. It's not that he looks awful in what he wears, instead, Samuel kind of pulls off the treacherous clothing that he chooses to wear. Leather is amongst his favourite materials, especially leather pants, or leather jackets. He thinks they are the most amazing things known to man kind, besides, his package looks mighty fine in a pair of skin tight leather pants. Though t-shirts are also his favourites, as long as they are somewhat interesting, but he won't fear from wearing a plain white tee. Simplicity is key when it comes to his wardrobe and his general appearance, due to a lack of patience, Samuel could never be bothered to keep up with the latest styles or to tend to his appearance to often.

If you were to explain Samuel's personality in just one word, it would probably be much easier to just call him a spazz without going any further into details. It is just the easiest way to associate Samuel O'Reilly to any trait, because he has many different types of characteristics, though the way you may portray him may depend on how well you know him, or how you fit in his good graces. There aren't many people who don't fit into his good graces, and that is mainly because Samuel is such a big push over. Especially when it comes to his group of friends, Samuel is known as the guy who allows them to walk all over him, maybe just because he is a little to trusting when it comes to people that he is close to. It isn't hard to become his friend, just simply act nice towards him and anyone that he might even be remotely protective over and you'll be making yourself a good friend just that easily. He's not the pickiest person when it comes to the type of personalities that he likes to align himself with, but if you're an ass, then he will definately put you on his naughty list. You see, Samuel is kind of simple when it comes to his friendships, he either likes you, or he doesn't. He either trusts you, or he doesn't. There is no in between, or maybes, or, unsure feelings when it comes to other people. You're either on his good side, or his bad side. Especially because he never really ignores anyone and pays very close attention to anyone around him, it is unlikely that you'll ever be able to be anywhere in between.
Though he tends to trust people who are close to him, don't think that Samuel is the type of person to just let you slide by without keeping his eye on you. Samuel has a really bad problem with his paranoia. As far as he's concerned, everyone is possibly out to get him, so he always feels the need to protect his back, unless you knows for sure that he can trust you. Especially those that are on his bad list are the type of people who set off his paranoia. He's just one great big worry-wart who always gets weird feelings in his stomach when it comes to selective situations. This one trait tends to heighten quite a bit when he's under the influence of some kind of drug or alcohol, which is practically all the time, so he is known for his paranoia as well. He's a little jumpy when it comes to him being on drugs as well, so this is probably the most likely person that you will want to jump out at if you're trying to scare someone for some jokes. As hard as he tries to hide how scared he becomes, Samuel can't help but let out this weakness, have you ever heard of a cowardly lion? This sure as hell is one of them!
With the back of his mind always considering that an unknown person might backstab him or possibly harm him, it's a shock to know that this boy openly tells people all about himself. Samuel has never cared to keep a detail of his life hidden, unless it is possibly something that might have him arrested, but still, if you ever pull him into a heart to heart conversation, you'll easily get away with knowing the boy's life story. Samuel likes to talk, and as long as people are listening, he's more then willing to give them an earful when it comes to his crazy and wild adventures. His life has always been fairly exciting, not so much in the bad sense seeing as he has lived a very happy life, but still he loves to talk about the fun things he does, and the little pranks that he manages to pull off, so if you're in a hurry, Samuel isn't the type of person to stop and chat with. Over exagerating also tends to happen when it comes to his stories, not because he finds his life dull, but just simply because Samuel truly beliefs that the exagerations he is saying have happened. It's somewhat like if he were to lie, if he kept it up for long enough, he'd start to believe his own lie was real. It isn't like he lies very often, and actually, the only time he'll ever lie is if it is convenient for him, or if he is forced to tell a lie. It isn't to hard to tell when he's lying either, he's to smirky and unable to pull of a lie without laughing to have his lies kept secret. It's usually one of his down falls, considering he can't even keep serious when it comes to something that would save his own ass.
Being serious was never his forte, he prefers to live life happy, and to do that, one must always be joking and laughing. That is why he is hardly ever taken seriously, because it's hard for him to even act seriously. It's almost like a security blanket for him to turn everything into a joke, especially when it comes to serious situations. Samuel has yet to know anyone who has died, so he has yet to feel any kind of real loss. It is still questionable how he would handle any kind of real loss, he'd probably just feel really uncomfortable and have to laugh it off no matter how much it hurt him. Kind of like a nervous reaction. Honestly, he's never actually felt much sadness or much anger, he's just to laid back. It's very hard to upset him, and even more difficult to make him angry, unless you cheap him out of something. Samuel doesn't like being made a fool of, unless he likes you, or he just so happens to do it on his own, which happens fairly often. He is reckless to say the least, and usually doesn't may much attention to things that might physical harm him. God knows how many times he's hurt himself do to his ruthless decisions. Being a dare devil was always something that Samuel considered himself, especially with his group of friends who enjoyed a life of danger and prankery. He's more then willing to give up his own safety to make himself or someone else laugh, so he's probably the first person you'll see pulling off some dumb stunt to put a smile on someone's face.
Saying that, Samuel is the type of person who likes to make people smile. It makes him feel like a good person, and if he likes you, he doesn't want to see you sad or lonely. His loyalty is outstanding, taking his addictions into consideration, normally one wouldn't expect someone who is addicted to drugs and alcohol to ever have anyone's back except his own, but Samuel is willing to give up anything for his friends. Luckily for him, none of his friends desperately needed for him to get rid of his drug addiction. Samuel is usually compared to a dog, he is literally man's best friend, and he's usually the type of person that you'd like to keep close to you. With that, he can be one mean enemy, though he usually can't even bother to make any enemies just because he would much prefer to ignore the bastards who try to get on his bad side, versus fighting with them. In a sense, that is the only way Samuel is mature at all, he'd rather not fight, though that doesn't mean that he can't physically fight, he sure as hell can and he'd give you a run for your money too, but he'd just really prefer not to. Samuel doesn't have the personality to be a fighter, he doesn't like having to attack anyone, though he is very good at defending himself. Yet, he is not a fighter, or a lover, he's just the in the comfortable part between the two where he just simply defends himself and those he loves. Samuel would never start a fight with anyone, and if he ever did, it'd probably just be an accident, because he does tend to say things without thinking.
Samuel isn't the brightest kid on the block, but it would be a lie to call him stupid. In all honesty, if he were to apply himself, he could be very smart, but he'd much prefer to spend his time having fun. Once in a while, it just so happens that Samuel will randomly pop out some intelligent comment out of no where, and usually it is something strikingly bright that will blow everyone away. Though these times are very slim. He's not so good at coming up with bright comments very often, and instead he mostly just talks like an idiot. The majority of what he says is very random or just plain stupidity, so people don't tend to take him seriously.. ever. Though, Samuel doesn't hate that or anything, especially because he isn't serious to be begin with. He's very random, in a sense that he likes to change subjects fairy often, and as long as the subject is something that he finds amusing. He's kind of a bit of a prankster, and for this reason, the things that amuse him are usually the things that might harm someone. He does believe that it's funny when your friends hurt themselves, only a bit though, if it was anything to seriously painful he'd become worried, but he is very likely to pull small pranks on people, and these pranks are usually right where his concentration and intelligence go.
Mood swings tend to happen a lot, but the main reason for this is because of his drug addiction, along with his paranoia. One second, Samuel could be as happy as can be, and the next second he could feel absolutely useless and down on himself. It's usually depending on the day the way that his mood will swing from one end of the criteria to the other. Any of the people who have gotten to know Samuel well enough are accustomed to these mood swings, and don't even take much notice to them, besides, it's not like they really are any danger, especially because Samuel isn't really the type of person to go into any kind of depression, no matter how sad he feels, nor is he the type to ever physically harm anyone unless he has to. Very rarely will Samuel get angry and seriously be angry, but either way there is always a two minute rebound where he becomes happy once again, so even if he'd mad at you, the likelyhood of you being unable to make him happy sooner then later is very low. There has been very few times where the gryffindor has gotten angry enough with a friend to the point of ignoring them for about a week, and that was for something legit, and still no one has ever seen him angrier then that one week ever. He's joyful, and he can't help but be that way because according to him, there's always something to look forward to and something to be happy about.
When it comes to relationships, no one would ever say that Samuel O'Reilly was the romantic type. It isn't very often at all that he gets caught up in a relationship, either because people get tired of him to soon, or he gets bored and ends up going for the next piece of eye candy. Samuel's picky, he's the type of person who has to feel completely indulged into a person to even possibly consider them to be someone that he could be in a serious relationship. If there is something that bugs him about a person, he is likely to just drop any interests to search for someone else who he thinks would suit his liking more. Though, in a relationship he still isn't romantic, but there is something about the way Samuel is towards the person he is dating that is considered sweet. He's very open and willing to tell his lover anything and everything that will keep them content, so if you're in a true relationship with Samuel, you are guaranteed to have a very close relationship with a person that you can fully trust with all. When Samuel feels for a person, he feels with all of his heart, and if you're lucky enough to get close to him, you'll see that this druggie has a whole lot more to offer then just a headache.
nothing is thicker thanb l o o d THESTORY
Thomas and Eilene O'Reilly
Samuel O'Reilly was born on March 3rd, 1960 in a small and comfortable hospital in Dublin, Ireland. The name Samuel came from an uncle on Thomas' side of the family, and they could tell right from the boy's face that the name Samuel would fit. He wasn't the quietest baby, though that didn't mean he cried very much, instead he was just very joyful. His birth went by smoothly, which was greatly appreciated by the O'Reilly couple, seeing as this was their first born child, and though they expected more later on in life, they had feared having complications with their first child. The two had known that if there were any complications with the first, that they would fear having a second child, so soon after Samuel was born, they immediately began planning their second child. They had wanted to have the children born the closest in age as possible without pushing Eilene's comfortability, just because they had wanted them to be together, rather then have their eldest son, Samuel, alone for the beginning of his life time. Eilene O'Reilly had read somewhere in a magazine that having the children born around the same time was better for developing responsability on the first, and learning skills for the second, so Kyla was born three years later.
The two O'Reilly children lived the life of every other average child, with the addition of magic being put into their lives. Mr and Mrs O'Reilly had chose against exposing their children to magic during their childhood in hopes of them not abusing their powers when it came to school. So it is completely understandable why the two O'Reilly children didn't completely know about their abilities until they came of age. Samuel has enrolled into regular muggle elementary school when he turned four, when his sister was still at the young age of a year old. It was obvious that he missed his sister the entire time, but he learned things in abundance when it came to regular muggle learnings, and that was why the family decided to keep their children in the muggle school district until it came to their enrolment once they were old enough to attend Hogwarts.
Right from the very first day that Samuel attended elementary school, he immediately fit in with every crowd. He was far from the quietest kid, and instead he was very friendly with each and every kid unless they were intent on stealing his cookies. That was one thing that he wouldn't allow. But never was he cross with anyone, Samuel had always been a caring person right from the start, and sure he'd become angry with people, but he'd never allow his anger to ever take over and influence him to hurt anyone, basically he wasn't the kid who'd go around punching kids for sneaking away his snacks. Instead he just annoyed them until they returned them, or reimbursed them. He did fairly well when it came to his grades back in elementary school as well, what with drugs not influencing the way his academics went, it was only natural for him to be able to use his intelligence, though people are surprised nowadays that he has any intelligence at all. But his grades had been very well back in muggle school, even when his sister later on joined him at Conall elementary school three years later, something that pleased the two of them seeing as they could spend more time together.
Life was fairly simple from then on, they both attended regular muggle school, went home, ate dinner and spent time with their family. The O'Reilly's lived a fairly joyful life, they weren't exactly rich, but nor were they poor, they could easily afford to have a roof above their heads, and their salary intake was also enough to keep food in their children's stomachs while also being able to enjoy the simply luxurious that would keep them entertained. Things were simple, and things were easy, that is until Samuel turned eleven and during that year he received his ticket to a much more extraordinary life. It was then that Thomas and Eilene explained the insane abilities that both of their children held, and Samuel was pulled out of muggle school that year and instead transfered to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, leaving his family behind so that he could live up to his true potential. Neither O'Reilly child was pleased about needing to leave one another, but Sam couldn't help but feel excited about this newfound ability that he would be able to control, Hogwarts was like a whole new thing for him and he couldn't wait to embrace the things that would come to him.
When Samuel finally headed off to school on the Hogwart's express, he immediately became excited for this new experience. He practically couldn't contain himself when the trolly came around offering the students snacks, and immediately gobbled up all of the wizarding candy that he could, especially those chocolate frogs. Samuel was practically like a muggle born child, due to his lack of exposure to the magical world, so when he met a young boy named Horacio Fado while on his trip on the train, it was very natural for him to ask all of the questions that had been left unanswered from the boy who had obviously grown up in a wizarding community. The other boy was pretty funny, and even on their short time on the bus he'd managed to pull a few pranks here and there on the other students, so immediately the two stuck together like glue. It was since that very first day on the train that the two became best friends, keeping together especially after they were both sorted into Gryffindor and somehow managed to be placed together in the same dormitory with two other boys, Christian Wood and Landon Hurst.
During their childhood, Sam and Kyla had been inseperable, so when Kyla finally received her letter to Hogwarts, the two were very excited. They weren't as close as they were before, all because of distractions, but it is still safe to say that they remained there for each other no matter what. As people get older, they usually distance themselves more from their loved ones due to distractions such as boyfriends, friends, though these two stayed closer either way, yet not nearly as close as they were when they were kids. Being in the same house, it was a little less complicated for the two of them to remain close. Besides, Kyla got along fairly well with Samuel's friends so it only made sense for her to keep around them, it kept her from getting into any kind of trouble or fights with anyone else, which just caused less stress for Samuel. He wasn't the type to go around bullying people to protect his sister, he prefered to be happy-go-lucky, rather then having to be angry with people, which is why he's never truly hated anyone or needed to hold any kind of grudges.
His grades were very well, that is until his fourth year when Samuel ran into a stranger in Hogsmeade who had offered him gillyweed. Curious about how the drug was supposed to make him feel, Samuel decided to accept and began to do the drug, only to become addicted later on. Drugs became a very strong influence in his life, and at times he didn't exactly make the best decisions because of his addiction. In his fifth year, Samuel began receiving drugs in abundance, but just so that he could make some kind of earning from it, selling it to all of the students who were willing to pay some cash for his product. Before he usually shared his drugs with anyone, but he wasted most of his money anyways, so the only people he didn't charge were his closest friends, at least this way he wouldn't become bankrupt thanks to moochers. Samuel's grades dramatically dropped now that he no longer bothered with his academics, and because of his addiction he rarely even cared about anything that he used to. He sort of became a little paranoid because of drugs, and at times he became a little spacey as well, especially since he could easily get into a great deal amount of trouble for supplying his products to minors as well, he didn't care about who he sold it to, as long as he received some kind of payment. Now in his last year of school, Samuel still is addicted to drugs, and he still has the same friends that he started with in his first year.

No pet, it would be irresponsible to give Samuel OReilly a pet.
role play sample;
The first dayback at Hogwarts was never one of his brightest days, actually it was one of those days Draco Malfoy dreaded. There weren't any friends at school that he didn't keep in touch with out of school during the summer, so he had no reason to get excited for when school rolled by once again. School just meant that Draco would have to see all those prats that drove him insane, he's have to see Harry Potter and his gang of friends, competition would be back. Say goodbye to relaxation, Hogwarts never offered any of that to Draco. Surely for other students, Hogwarts meant comfort, relaxation, happiness, but for Draco it was quite the opposite, he was always plotting, studying and trying to be successful. The only positive thing that he could get from Hogwarts was another chance to beat Potter and clan, it was another shot for him to make his father proud. The majority of his summer was used up for him to learn things in advance, study the upcoming classes he was about to take and for him to practice quidditch, get a better hang of his broom and learn to spot the snitch faster, Draco knew that this year was his chance to finally beat the golden boy. It was his one.. fourth big chance to make Lucius proud, and he wasn't about to ruin his chances.
Snapping out of his trance, Draco looked down towards the girl who's arm was looped into his own, forcing his lips to break a small grin. Oh Pansy, so loyal, so beautiful, he never would have been able to survive Hogwarts without her. She was just the type of person Draco needed to keep his sanity, she kept him grounded, as grounded as a Malfoy could be. Over the years, he had become very fond of her, and only this year did they become official, a couple, everyone at Hogwarts had guessed it the moment they stepped through the large wooden doors, not everyone got to hold onto him the way Pansy did, you had to be special to have that physical contact with Draco. Well, in general you had to be worth his time, most girls who were pureblood, rich and beautiful seemed to fit his criteria of who was worthy. If you were in that list, then by all means, Draco loved to be touched and held onto, that was all for his image though, it made him look even more like a hot shot, he loved the attention. Pansy was different then other girls though, he cared for her, had some sort of emotional attachement, she was his girlfriend and his closest friend. He wouldn't have his relationship with her any other way, especially not with how much closer they had become over the summer.
Draco lead Pansy and his friends behind them to their usual seating arrangement at the slytherin table, only releasing her arm when they were ready to sit down on the wooden benches and the questioning of the extra tables begun. Draco hadn't voiced his own opinion, instead listening with no interest to what conclusions their friends had brought up, a simple nod following as Pansy snapped at the seperation of the house concept. He agreed, that idea was pure insanity, they wouldn't be able to call upon two different houses, that would go against the reason for why each house had their own name. There were four founders, not six, Draco practically wanted to smack the girl across the head for being so idiotic, he could hear students from the table next to them giggling about her conclusion. Pansy seemed to have covered up for it quickly, pushing aside such assumptions only to later on agree with Daphne. Daphne always was one of the most intelligent girls in their circle of friends, she usually knew all the news before anyone else, Draco could respect her answer for the two spare tables, it seemed valid.
Grey eyes turned towards the table higher then the rest where Dumbledore rose from his seat, just as the student body hushed their voice in silent respect. It didn't make any sense to Draco, how Dumbledore received some of respect from the student body, he was just a Headmaster, nothing more. There certainly were other people who deserved much more then him, yet he was the only one who was able to keep an entire school quiet just from a simple raise of his voice. Though Draco did not show any signs of respect for the man, he too remained silent for the time being, allowing the old man to welcome the students to another year at Hogwarts, this was the fourth time he had heard this speech, and it was still as boring and drawing as ever, he forced a yawn through, pale hands moving to cover his lips politely. When Alastor Moody was introduced, Draco noticed the simple gesture Pansy had made in moving closer to him, he looked at her from the corner of his eye before glancing at the man once more, raising a brow as he took a swig from his tin canteen. A simple shake of his head followed, who drank so obviously in front of the entire student body, good luck demanding respect after that kind of show. Draco rolled his eyes at the man before he looked back up to Dumbledore, awaiting his next news. The next topic explained all the questions that had been bothering the slytherin table just moments before Dumbledore demanded their attention. The TriWizard Tournament, that must have been it! He remembered hearing something about it from his father's conversation with another member of the Ministry , obviously Lucius had known before hand that this tournament was in place, Draco hardly listened to much that Lucius had to say anymore, unless it involved him. Fabulous, his entire summer of practicing at Quidditch, all gone to waste, he wouldn't be able to show off Potter, well atlease that was one thing off his to-do list. Once it was obvious that two other schools were about to join Hogwarts for this tournament, Draco had finally felt interested in what Dumbledore had to say, that is, until the doors opened and at Dumbledore's call, more students began to pile in.
The first set of students began to file in, wearing periwinkle colored outfits that were the same for every student, of course there was a difference between the females and the males, but they still matched very well. Draco immediately sat straight up in his seat when he noticed the female population from Beauxbatons, his silver eyes widening quite a bit as they strode in, their feet moving in practical skips. His jaw was giving him a hard time, trying to drop open in awe, instead he chose to lock his jaw shut hard, forcing it together, Pansy was looking at him for his reaction and already he could tell she wasn't pleased. The girls were gorgeous, and he couldn't tear his eyes away from them, and like most of the male Hogwart students he wanted to call out to them, get their attention, surely they would find him attractive too, right? The way they pranced, Draco couldn't help but watch them innappropriately, maybe Pansy wouldn't notice, he hoped she wouldn't. " Merlin." Draco whispered under his breath finally as the Beauxbatons students sat at their table, his eyes following them all to their seats before Dumbledore had introduced the next school, Durmstrang. When the Head Master had introduced the school, his good friend Vincent had released a fart, and immediately Draco had held in a chuckle, " That's vile!" He exclaimed, his voice coming out with a slight snicker in it, until he noticed Pansy wasn't pleased, he shut his trap just then.
Anyways, Durmstrang had been the school that Lucius wanted Draco to attend. He remembered as a child, Lucius had managed to talk Karkaroff into giving himself and Draco a tour, he didn't remember much about the school in general but he remembered it being dark and filled with students much like his own kind. All were pureblood and rich, and all what Lucius considered worthy. Draco had been excited to attend the school, that is until Narcissa voiced that she didn't want her son travelling so far from home every year for school, she wanted to keep him near, Lucius hadn't argued to much and Narcissa had won the battle. Damn woman, sending him to this forsaken school when he could have been in with those he actually liked, people worth living. His mind forced him to stare away from the girls of Beauxbatons when the doors are opened once more, now allowing the entrance of the Durmstrang students, led by Viktor Krum. Draco's eyes immediately widened, " That's Viktor Krum." Draco pointed out to no one in particular. Obviously Draco looked up to the lad, he was the best seaker, according to Draco, perhaps he could suggest a some practice with Viktor so that he could get some tips. Eyes widened with glee for the moment, Draco watched the performance, until he noticed the loudest of clapping coming from the girl next to him, and immediately he shot a glance in her direction, his arm lifting so that he could hold her down in his seat, especially since he had noticed a few of the Durmstrang boys eyeing her. Pansy was his property, he was going to make sure they understood that. He smiled at her gingerly, hoping she didn't notice that he had become jealous, Pansy didn't need anymore of an ego boost.
Dumbledore finished his rules and such, and finally the food had begun settling onto the tables, and only then did Draco's eyes begin to waver over the visitors; especially the Beauxbatons girls. It was weird, how he couldn't drag his eyes away from them, they had this strong force, much like the veela cheerleaders during the Quidditch World Cup, Draco had hardly been able to keep himself still in his box during that performance, he had noticed that all the others males were having a difficult time doing so too. His father had later told him that the cheeleaders were veelas, so he guessed that some of the Beauxbatons girls must have had some of that blood in them as well. While he studied the girls curiously, he could make out one of them staring back at him, so Draco didn't shy in linking eyes with hers. He raised a single brow as she batted her long eyelashes with him, clearly she was interested and Draco seemed just as taken with her as she was with him. His cocky smirk grew on his lips as she flirted back, and he nodded his head in her direction. He would definately engage her in conversation at the party he had arranged at the boat house, as long as Pansy didn't realize what he was doing...
His mindset didn't stay on the girl long enough, Pansy had immediately demanded his attention when she had noticed the shared stare that the two had done, and only Pansy knew exactly how to distract Draco. Bringing up any of Draco's proudest moments was the best way to take him away from anything of importance, Draco loved to brag, and seeing as he had gotten into the best seats at the Quidditch World Cup, he was very proud of talking about it. Clearly, Pansy had heard the story millions of times and she probably knew how to recite it backwards, yet Draco still didn't mind repeating it, the reaction she gave boosted is self esteem more and more each time. " Just for you," Draco begun, now completely paying attention to Pansy, his arm moving so that his hand was on her lower back affectionately as he began to describe to her how it felt to be at the top of the world. " Well, father had gotten the tickets as a gift, he had given donations to the Ministry and Fudge thought it was only fitting for us to sit with him and Bagman, we had the best seats in the entire place.." Draco went on and on, all eyes on him from his table as he described how glorious it was to watch the game from his seat, and how exciting it was and how he was able to speak with some of the most famous people in the wizarding world, he swore that even the Weird Sisters were in the same box as him, he just kept going on and on and on.
