In between working on class for Monday, Hermione was trying to write a letter. In truth, she'd been trying to cohesively describe everything that had been happening for about a week now, and hadn't had much luck. You try explaining it.

So really, it wasn't so much that she was trying to take a break from class in order to write, but rather the other way around.

[Open. I'm going to stab myself in the hand so going to urgent care will give me something to do.]

So last week? Had been sort of wild. Neal didn't know what to make of it, but he knew someone who would, so he begrudgingly made the trek to her office.

She was basically the hot girl version of Peter. That made her worthy of wariness, in Neal's opinion.

"Hey."

In classic Caffrey style, Neal raised an eyebrow. "Oh, really?"

Leave it to him to make a simple sentence like that into some kind of proof that she wanted him.

Sorry, Hermione.

Suuuure, Hermione. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

"Think I'm doing okay," Neal said, giving that some actual thought. "Last week was... unusual, huh?"

Uh-huh.

"And your definition... wouldn't cover that?"

"Hey, whoa, I wouldn't say that," Neal laughed. So basically, yes. "But, uh, the mutated deer... that's gonna be a thing?"

Peter hated him. There was no other explanation. He was here on this island, prone to attacks as it was, because Peter wanted him to suffer.

He couldn't blame him, really.

"Any idea when the next plane out of here is?" he asked lightly.

"Okay, yeah," Neal admitted. "Gotta admit, being able to walk right up to the National Gallery right when it was first built was a highlight. And until this week I hadn't been to the Louvre in years. Definitely didn't mind that."

Actually, he'd geeked out and spent hours sketching, nonstop. And, in the case of the National Gallery, maybe taken paint swabs.

"It's just the turning-into-things that kind of throws me for a loop."

Animal transformations.

That was definitely... different.

"How common are we talking, exactly?" he had to ask.

Little did he know that he was due for one in only a few short weeks. Poor, poor Neal.

charming_thief: (conv: talking up)
From: [personal profile] charming_thief
"Hey, I'm always up for a good time," Neal joked, because her being the hot girl version of Peter meant he just had to make cracks like that. "What've you got?"

Not that he really believed she could do anything...

Now Neal was starting to doubt himself juuuust a bit, but he couldn't very well back down, could he?

"Always liked cats," he said lightly, doing his best to keep the mild concern out of his voice.

"Nah, go for it," he said, waving a hand as if this kind of thing happened all the time. "I'm a curious guy. This should be interesting."

And now he was pretty much confident that she could turn him into something. That... sucked.

charming_thief: (fact: cat)

And... suddenly Neal was tiny. And staring at Hermione's shoes. Whiskers twitching, he looked up in alarm.

She had -- really just turned him into a cat, hadn't she? This island was weird.

For the sake of the ladies of Fandom, maybe she shouldn't.

Neal was flabbergasted when all of a sudden he was human again, grabbing his hat from off the floor beside him and getting back to his feet.

"What -- what was that?!"

Date: 2011-08-12 08:49 pm (UTC)
charming_thief: (conv: skeptical)
From: [personal profile] charming_thief
"Uh-huh." Okay, give him a second; Neal was definitely shaken from that encounter. It wasn't like he'd ever been turned into a cat before. "So people on this island can go ahead and just turn each other into cats, huh?"

...Not quite, sweetie.

Maaaybe? Neal couldn't remember because his player failed at such things that day had been kind of hectic, all things considered. Either way, he probably hadn't believed her the first time.

"Gotcha," he said after a minute, eyeing her curiously.

And that was when Neal decided to turn on the charm. Well, more than before, anyway.

"Nothing," he said evasively. "You've got a lot of intel on this place, you know that?"

charming_thief: (conv: skeptical)
From: [personal profile] charming_thief
"Nah, nah, I think I'm good," he said after a minute. And again with the devious eyeing. "Uh -- nice talking to you, Hermione."

Followed by the charming smile he saved for pretty girls. Hey, girl-Peter or not, she was still hot.
