    There he went again. No matter what that boy did, he always said just the right thing to smooth it over. It was like... well, like magic. She still suspected he had some strange power she had yet to find an explanation for, but her investigation of that had been interrupted by their fight. She didn't want to give in and let it go, but his voice... it was so calming. His words struck at the heart of the issue, and he did seem to be genuinely apologetic for upsetting her. Maybe he didn't quite understand, but he understood enough to say he was sorry. He knew more about her than she realized. Was he really paying attention behind all that constant daydreaming? Alex felt her frustrations wash away. Maybe the two of them really could be friends. "Thank you." She was glad he had apologized. She had to admit, holding on to all of those mixed-up feeling had been giving her an awful stomach ache. "So... a-are we okay?"

    "Y-you..." she trailed off, motioning for him to come closer. She wanted to tear him a new one, but wasn't even close to ready to do so in front of the entire class. She didn't want to ignore him, she just... she just wanted him to understand how his actions had made her feel. Deep down she knew he hadn't intended her any harm, but he had caused it. She had to tell him, or he would just keep doing things like this to people. Hurting them with his absolute obliviousness. She waited for him to approach, then took a deep breath. She unleashed everything at once in a soft, distressed voice. "You called me your friend. I get that doesn't mean anything to you, but it means something to me. I don't have a lot of friends, you know? And I know you're super popular and everything but that isn't what life is like for me. You called me your friend and I - I believed you! And then you couldn't even remember my name. you were supposed to be my friend and you forgot all about me and then you tell me to calm down like nothing happened but I can't because I'm... I'm... I'm freaking pissed!"

    So he was ignoring her now? Never mind that she was actively ignoring him, that was such a jerk thing to do! She had every reason to be upset with him after what he did. He had offered her friendship, an offer she didn't receive often, and then when she went out of her way to offer him tutoring he hadn't even remembered who she was! What kind of massive idiot couldn't even remember the names of their "friends"? She hadn't even asked to be friends with him in the first place, nor had she verbally accepted that offer. He was always, always bringing attention to himself. Which meant that when he talked to her he brought all sorts of attention her way as well. She was better off without any connection to that boy. And yet... why did she want him to pay attention to her. Why did she feel so offended that he was giving her the silent treatment. Whatever this feeling was is was annoying, and it was all Axel's fault. Watching him chat with those other boys like her ire toward him didn't even matter... it just made her angrier. She couldn't quite put into words why she was so pissed off, but she knew full well who she was angry at. "H-Hey!" She stammered loudly, startling herself as much as anyone else. What was she doing!? But the words had come out. All she could do was wait for a response.

    Alex glanced over at the girl's stick-figure drawing. My, how talented. The spiteful thought crossed her mind, still pissed off from their conversation. But from that silly thought and idea began to grow. A horrible, awful, wonderful idea. Okay, not really. It was actually very simple and not completely thought-out. But with no means of actual confrontation, Alex was grasping at straws. The straw she had latched on to was incredibly petty, but... well considering the brat's attitude it might actually work. The doodle showed clearly that the girl was bored by Astronomy. Not really surprising, as she found that most people were. Even Ms. Harkiss seemed to struggle bringing her usual excitement into teaching it. But Alex - Alex liked Astronomy. She was good at it. The girl beside her had called her stupid? Well, sure this of all classes would provide her an opportunity to prove the girl wrong. She just had to give an answer, one answer to a question the girl didn't know, and her point would be made clear.For probably the first time in her life, Alexia felt an overwhelming desire to show someone up. The thought of embarrassing this jerk made her laugh audibly. She just had to muster enough courage to actually participate in class...

    Now she knew this was more than a mere misunderstanding. Alexia had had plenty of misunderstandings due to her awkward demeanor and tendency to say the wrong things at the wrong times, but in all of those times she had never been referred to as stupid. Because really, she just wasn't. Alex didn't claim to be a genius by any means, but her intelligence was one of her strongest points. Her reliance on facts, logic, and reading had branded her a nerd. But stupid? No... this girl was the stupid one. Stupid and disgusting and mean. Alex clutched her quill tighter than usual, grinding her teeth together in frustration. She wanted to say something, but she couldn't. Her fear of confrontation was far stronger than her dislike of being teased. She looked over at Professor Harkiss on the other side of the room. There was no way she could hear their whispered conversation from all the way over there. Alex could tell on the girl, but... she didn't want to think about what kind of retaliation that might earn her. The way the Slytherin was giving commanding glares to her house mates, it was clear she was a force to deal with. Alex didn't need to make enemies with someone like that. And raising her hand to tell the teacher would draw attention from the entire class too. There must be something she could do. Think, Alex. Think.

    Wow, rude! Alex turned back to her notes. Maybe it was due to her lack of interactions with her fellow students, but she hadn't heard that sentiment before. Those born to Muggles were stronger and better? That didn't really match up with her observations. It was true that the students from Wizarding families had a bit of a head start since they had known about magic their entire lives. Yet this advantage belonged not only to those of "pure blood" as the Slytherin put it, but to the children with only one Wizard parent who grew up with magical knowledge. Some of the top students in her classes were "nobodies" like her, while some of the students who bragged about their Wizarding families had below-average grades. There just wasn't a correlation. She wasn't sure where this girl's ideas were coming from, but they obviously weren't rooted in logic. "I... I don't think that's accurate," she muttered.Mostly to herself, though the mean girl could probably hear.

    Alex turned to the girl beside her in stunned silence. She hadn't planned on trying to speak to her, as the awkward girl rarely initiated conversation. But the malice in her tone was quite shocking. People normally had no reason to confront her about anything, but this student seemed to have some unknown problem with her. "S-sorry?" Alexia stammered. It was half apology, half question. She didn't recognize the brunette. Had she offended her somehow? Alex hoped not... she certainly didn't want to cause any trouble. Judging by the way the girl was speaking though, she had obviously done something wrong. She didn't want to talk or anything, but there was a certain urge to set things right. "I-I didn't mean to offend you..." she spoke in a barely audible whisper. "Um... w-what's a Mudblood?"

    Trust the broom? What the heck was that supposed to mean? Maybe she would understand better if she were a Quidditch player. Broom care and the like mattered a lot then. It helped with speed and maneuverability, both essential skills for the game. But to a nervous little first year, none of this really made sense. What did it mean to trust an object? Enchanted or not ,it wasn't like the thing was alive... Still, she was grateful for the intervention, as Mandy's positive personality was definitely a bit much. She turned back to her broom with no coice but to give it a shot. She laid it gently on the ground and whispered a barely audible "Up..." The broom shakily made its way up to her hand, though it seemed a bit less shaky than usual.

    "W-what?" Alex blinked. The sudden onslaught of words was far too much for her. Her head spun a bit as she processed what the girl was saying. Well, first she had introduced herself. Amanda, no Mandy... that was what her friends called her. Alex and Mandy weren't friends though. But then again, she had told her to call her Mandy, so that was obviously the name she preferred. As for her little tirade about Professor Wolfe, it struck her as both very weird and utterly normal. Even to the isolated Alex, schoolgirl crushes were not unheard of. And she'd heard many a gossip whispered about the young and famous professor. Still, to hear it being told to her directly seemed rather strange. Wasn't that the sort of fading fantasy that normal girls kept in their journals? "I'm Alexia," she finally said once everything had processed. "A-and the P-Professor is an adult..."

    "Ah- I- I said yes." Alex looked at the ground, embarrassed by the sudden confrontation. The girl seemed very friendly. Too friendly in fact, which for some reason set her further on edge. It was no wonder the Hufflepuff was concerned about her. Hanging her head mumbling that that, it must have looked like something was really wrong. But all she wanted was to go back to cleaning her broom in peace, and to not actually have to fly today would also be pretty nice.

    Alex jumped, started at being addressed directly. "I-I" She turned to see a girl with bright blue hair and impeccable makeup. A Hufflepuff most likely, as she hadn't seen her around the Ravenclaw dorms. Then again, Alexia didn't see many people around the Ravenclaw dorms... she spent most of her time either in the library or studying in her own little corner of the dorm room so she really only knew the first-years in her own room. Even then, she wouldn't be able to tell their names. But this girl surely would have caught her eye, she was so... colorful. "Mmmm - yeah," she managed to respond under her breath. Alex wasn't a fan of the casual conversation.

    Alex made her way to the classroom, an extra skip in her step. It was time to head up to the Astronomy room! The "up" part was a bit concerning, but height was much less of an issue inside a solid stone castle. And her excitement for the subject more than made up for it. Astronomy was one of her favorites, mostly because it just felt more grounded in reality. Magic was fascinating and she did hold a certain love and curiosity for it, but there were certain things she missed about her old life. She was entranced by magic, but she felt far more secure with "normal". Before the Muggleborn had received her letter, the world had already been a vast and scary place. Now the size and possibility had doubled, tippled even, and Astronomy was the only course that really brought her back to that more solid time in her life. Sure it all connected back to this Wizarding stuff, but they were still the same stars she'd been under her whole life. Alexia entered the room, giving the Headmistress a shy wave before taking a seat toward the back of the room.

    Alex was thankful for her teacher's encouragement, even if she didn't earn any points for her house. Somehow Miss Johnson had understood what she meant through all of her stammering. Her teacher was a wonderful, understanding person. Her classmate on the other hand... she refused to even look at Axel. That absolute moron! She heard him mumble something about being sorry which softened her fury a bit, but she still didn't want to interact with him right now. Instead, she focused on her work. At least this time it would require no answering aloud.. much less nerve-wracking. Plus it was math. Bonus! Alex had always had an affinity for the subject, and here at Hogwarts they didn't offer actual core classes like Math, Writing, etc. It was no wonder so many struggled with Transfiguration, essentially being asked to jump straight into algebra at eleven years old. But for Alex, it wouldn't be a problem. Patterns were kind of her thing, and all math was was a huge series of patterns. She smiled a bit as she began getting into the problem, writing with much more neatness and accuracy than the boy beside her. The groans and scratching noises from the next desk. He must have been struggling quite hard with the problem. For some reason that made her smile grow a bit. Serves him right for being such an airhead. Still, she was a bit curious. She glanced over briefly to see how he was progressing. Difficulty= [(Wand Power x Concentration)/(1 x Mass of Matches and Needles)] x Unknown Complications... that was true, but it could be simplified further. She looked down at her own answer, more confident than she had been before. After all, it simplified down to: Difficulty= [(Wand Power x Concentration)/(Mass of Matches and Needles)] x Unknown Complications She would wait for Miss Johnson to check Axel's work, then quietly indicate that she too was done. That way she wouldn't bring any more attention to herself.

    Alex made a few terrified stammering noises. He wanted her to answer? Out loud? Like, in front of the entire class!? She knew the answer of course, having actually done the homework. But to answer in front of everyone was far too much to ask of the nervous eleven-year-old. Her pale skin began to sweat, and she shrank away from the eyes now cast in their direction. How oblivious could this guy be? And how completely and totally obvious... everyone could see him turn his head toward her, everyone knew he was motioning for her to answer. What kind of friend would put her in such a position. "Mmm...c-cuz... ah... ter..." She had meant to say "because it deals with the alteration of objects", but "Mmm...c-cuz... ah... ter..." was all that would come out. A couple of students were snickering now, serving only to increase her insecurities. They thought she was dumb, didn't they? Her pale skin flushed red, a deep embarrassment burning throughout her whole body. Alex finally ceased her noises, hanging her head and making herself as small as humanly possible. She begged in her mind for the lesson to move forward and pull attention away from her blunder.
