Taking the continued blushing and attempts at conversation as a... well, as not a rejection, Jasper smiles. Tiernan's stuttering and stammering is absolutely adorable. It's so very different from the poise and eloquence of the people he usually converses with.

"Well, you'll have to keep me updated," Jasper says. "I'd love to read some of your work."


Offering him a coy smile, Jasper turns his attention to his hand. Propping his elbow up on the desk, he twirls his fingers in front of his face, seemingly examining his nails. He frowns at an imperfect cuticle, running another finger over the tiny, cracked ridge.

While he actually is mentally adding a manicure to his to-do list, he's really just trying to distract himself. He's a post-pubescent male, talking with the first guy in Hogwarts he's ever thought might also be into men. An attractive guy, at that. His heart is thrumming. He needs to be sure.


"Tell me, Tiernan," he says, still looking at his hand as he rolls the other man's name over his tongue. He pauses for a moment before sliding his eyes in Tiernan's direction, looking him up and down. "Are you into blokes?"


Jasper adores being a Slytherin, but part of being one, he thinks, is knowing when to take the direct route. It has nothing to do with his own selfish need to know. Nothing whatsoever.

Tiernan has about half a second for his eyes to widen at the blatant once-over he had just received before the shock of Jasper’s rather blunt question hits him; Tiernan barely manages to keep his jaw from dropping at that. Oh, it’s not so unheard of to ask another person their sexual preference… in the normal world. In Hogwarts, Tiernan is pretty sure questioning another person’s sexuality is tantamount to suicide.

But that’s not really the thing that is at the forefront of Tiernan’s mind right now. He absolutely cannot believe, frankly, that this is happening to him. Because, frankly, that’s just too good to be true. Jasper asking him if he’s into blokes suggests interest. Sweet Jesus, if he is dreaming right now, he is going to be so pissed when he wakes up.

Strangely, after the initial shock, Tiernan seems to handle the direct route much better than he’d handled indirect, suggestive conversation. Granted, pretty much any reaction he could have at this point would be handling this better, as up until this point he’d been stammering and blushing and just generally flailing about unsuccessfully. Really, some days Tiernan feels as though there was some sort of lesson on being social that everyone else got and he must have missed. Maybe he was off writing that day…

“Yes, actually,” he says with more confidence than he feels, watching Jasper avidly, not wanting to miss his reaction.

Never being one to disappoint (even subconsciously), Tiernan's answer gets an honest to God genuine reaction out of Jasper. He blinks at the first word, but by the second, his lips are spreading, his cheeks pulling them up into the most satisfied, real smile he's had in ages.

Tiernan's into blokes. He's a ponce, a poof, an actual tosspot. Here, in Hogwarts, sitting across from Jasper and watching him as if he might not be totally adverse to... something. He doesn't know what, doesn't want to get his hopes up, but for the love of Merlin, even just having a gay friend would be better than his current situation. Honestly, he's tired of talking male booty with people who spend the better part of a week bleeding and bitching every month.

For once, someone up there is on his side.


"I'm so glad to hear you say that," he says, his voice smooth like warm honey.

Finally breaking eye contact with Tiernan, Jasper looks over his shoulder, checking the time. Detention should be ending shortly, and he's not about to let this one get away.


"Would you like to maybe... hang out sometime?" he asks, with a nonchalance that's a lot stronger than he actually feels. Please, please, for the love of all things magical, let Tiernan be interested. Jasper does not know what he will do if the only other gay male in Hogwarts turns out to be completely disgusted with him.

Still in a bit of shock, Tiernan stares back at Jasper for a long moment, even though it doesn’t really take that long for him to decide what his answer is. Honestly, what could he possibly say to that? No? As though he’ll ever have another chance at meeting not only another bloke at Hogwarts who swings his way, but happens to be attractive and… and he doesn’t even know.

But apparently shock and nervousness has made the path between his mouth and brain shut down, and so it takes Tiernan a longer time than it should to respond. Mostly because he’s busy staring at Jasper with huge eyes and silently screaming at his mouth to respond. Well, maybe shouting. Politely.

“Sure,” he finally chokes out, praying to Christ that it doesn’t come out two octaves too high. It doesn’t. It’s barely audible. But he’s pretty sure they’re sitting close enough that Jasper hears him. Now if only he could not pass out, that would be great.

Jasper does indeed hear him, but proceeds merely to blush and duck his head, quite ironically considering how Tiernan has spent the bulk of this conversation. But Jasper's a young (and fine) man, as well. He gets embarrassed about dates with the cute boys, too.

"Good," he finally says, picking his head back up with the hints of a grin.

"There's a Hogsmeade trip next weekend," Jasper offers, quite glad that it's next week and not the coming one, as he'll need time to coordinate his attire, should Tiernan agree.

"Would you maybe like to go?"
