Yes, the Dating Game, in which each half of a couple answers questions about their relationship without consulting the other first. Since we’re coming up on valentines day, We decided to walk around Hogwarts to visit some of the castle’s favorite couples. Watch them fall deeper in love, or flop over their own feet trying to answer questions about their relationships!
Today we have, Jayden Lukas and Raven Stormborn, Dying to know more about their relationship—or just who wins? Taking a walk through the courtyards, Miss Addington pressed these two for a few answers to rumours, questions, and to take a little peek into their lives.
How did you two meet?
Jayden: “That is pretty easy. It was at Madame Malkins in Diagon Alley. We were waiting to get fitted for our first robes and just got to talking with each other. I was nervous and it was my first time in Diagon Alley and she and I just got to talking. It was just pretty easy talking to her is what I remember most I think.”
Raven: “Yes I remember quite vividly when Jayden and I first met. He was getting fitted for his uniform in his first year. I was with my parents and went into the shop. I looked around and saw Madame Malkin with this small brown haired boy. She was getting his measurements as i went to a seat and waited. It didn’t take too long but I was getting restless just waiting. I asked Madame Malkin “Is this gonna take too long I got things to do.” I know it might have sounded snotty a bit but i wanted to get it over with. The boy looked up at me and said “You can wait your turn like the rest of us” I laughed and said “Oh i know i just wanted to know if it was going to be awhile. ” I introduced myself to him and he introduced himself. We started to talk about Hogwarts and that we were both excited to go. We learned we had a lot in common. We both like quidditch and seemed to be able to talk with one another as if we were friends for a lifetime.”
What is your favorite thing about each other?
Raven: “I like the way he is about anything really. He is a protector. Someone that will always be there for me no matter what. I like that a lot. He means what he says. If he says he is gonna be there or do something for you he does it. He wont make excuses either. He would lunge in to danger if he needed too. I would never ask him too but he would nonetheless. He is good to talk to and would laugh at any bad jokes I might have. Which is plenty cause I am bad at jokes”
Jayden: “It is so hard to just pick one thing but I would have to say that Raven is real. By that I mean that she is honest and I know that I can trust her to have my back. She isn’t pretentious in the least. She is very easy to talk to and really she isn’t all that bad at jokes. She isn’t mean and doesn’t make others feel like they are less even if she disagrees with them. Somehow I don’t think that was just one thing that I like best about her”
Who asked who out, and how?
Raven: “First off we were best friends before we dated. So we went to balls together and Ashworth Galas on several occasions. Jayden has always taken the initiative to ask me first. He is a gentleman always. We only started going out as boyfriend and girlfriend this year. I know many have shipped us long before we did ourselves”
Jayden: “Yes and every time I asked I was scared she would say no. Especially when I asked if she wanted to be my girlfriend. I guess that is normal though. I mean Raven is very special and I would never want to do anything to hurt or disappoint her.”
What is Jayden’s favorite spell?
Raven: “I actually don’t know what his favorite spell is but I do know what spell he uses the most. He definitely uses the switching spell the most. After classes are done he does tend to swap his clothes out for a more casual look. I don’t blame him. After all day in the school uniform can get quite tiresome. “
Jayden: “It is so hard to choose just one but yes I do use the switching spell a lot. It also has some creative uses in dueling as at least one opponent will attest. But as for my favorite… well I am actually very partial to the immobulus spell. When you are dueling, stopping an opponent in their tracks can be a lifesaver in my opinion. I have ended several duels with that one spell. It is also not overly malicious and won’t harm the person in a possibly long term way either.”
What is Raven’s favorite subject?
Jayden: “Well I know she wants to be a healer and has said that she likes the Defense Against the Dark Arts class. I think she also likes charms and potions too. But since it seems like need to choose one I am going to say Defense Against the Dark Arts first and I hope I get it right.”
Raven: “Yes that’s right I want to be a healer so that means i have to take a certain amount of subjects for it. I don’t truly have a favorite class but I do enjoy Defense against the dark arts, Charms, Potions and even Herbology. DADA would be probably my best subject out of all of them but again its so close. “
What is Raven’s biggest pet peeve?
Jayden: “I think maybe people who don’t keep their word or who hurt her friends. Anyone who does that is going to be in deep trouble and should be very afraid.”
Raven: “Yes that is one of my pet peeves I admit but my biggest one would have to be bullying. I truly hate that and anyone who tries it on me or my friends I will stand up for. I do not tolerate it at all. The last thing I want to see is anyone in fear because an idiot thinks they can bully another person. That’s when I really get vicious and make them learn their own lesson. So to all those bullies out there. Don’t even try it cause I’m not having it.”
What is one thing that Jayden does that drives you batty?
Raven: “Honestly there isn’t really annoying about Jayden at all. I tried to think of something but there just isn’t. We get along so good that I can’t possibly think of anything bad, annoying or anything wrong with him. I know that might not be a sufficient answer but that is my answer.”
Jayden: “Raven and I have always gotten along so well that I can’t think of anything that drives me nuts about her. Well maybe when she scared me to death the way she answered when I asked her if she wanted to be my girlfriend. But we both laughed about it afterwards and I knew she was just teasing me drawing out her answer and scaring me that she might say no. Other then that there is nothing really that would drive me nuts.”
What would you say is the others weirdest quirk?
Raven: “I don’t know if this is weird but Jayden has always worn hats. Some people make fun of him because of it. I don’t like that. His hats have become his trademark in a way. I am not sure but I think a relative gave him the hat and so he cherishes it and wears it all the time. So I can understand why he wears it. Also it looks good on him. Makes him stand out beyond the others.”
Jayden: “I think maybe when she had her hair in tight braided curls. She called them corn rolls but I thought it looked good. I think some others questioned her hair style but hey seems to me you can have your hair however you like it. Anyway that was different especially when I first saw it like that and I thought it was great she wasn’t afraid to be different from everyone else.”
Raven: “Ah yes my hair. I am forever experimenting. By the way they were dreadlocks though I have worn cornrows as well but not much compared to the dreadlocks. “
Jayden: “Oh yeah. I forgot the name exactly. Still shows you aren’t afraid to be different from the crowd and that is great.”
There you have it, making you wish you’d had a childhood love like theirs, Raven and Jayden remind us, there is such a thing as soul mates.
“I was there at your worst, defended you against the bullies, offered my umbrella during the storms yet you didn’t even remember my name during our class reunion but one thing you’ve remember… The poem I gave you with my heart in it.”
