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, Aisling Rose Opal Jones and Archie Colquhoun, Dying to know more about the pair, Curious about the two head students — or just who wins? Out in the Quad, Miss Vitrac sat down with these two to glean a few answers for you.
How did you two meet?
Aisling: “I wanna say class? Well when we like REALLY noticed each other anyway….I’m sure we met many times before that…”
Archie: “Aye, I’m afraid it’s very uninspiring. We simply ended up in the same classes and by happenstance began talking through a group of other folks …”
What is your favorite thing about each other?
Aisling: “His quiet calmness and unflappableness in the middle of all the Dorchester mess. Yet his willingness to help, As for my favorite thing about him….that list is way to long and I could never pick just one. His intelligence, bravery, His cunnin….just…everything”
Archie: “Well, there was a tough circumstance which I think brought out the best in us. With Aisling, it was her intense compassion and concern for others … the ability to see that something was wrong and something needed to be done about it. It really made her shine out among others. There were, naturally little things too of course. I remember talking about her parent’s art, which gelled with my mother’s love of the arts, and we both grew up in the countryside, But my favorite thing about her is her creativity. It is something I have only in a limit amount. Not only are her own skills impressive, but I’m sure they rub off on my own and make me a more creative and dynamic person as well.”
Aisling: “And clearly he’s the more eloquent of the two of us. I’m better with my art then my words..”
who asked who out, and how?
Aisling: “I think It was kinda a…mutual…you wanna do something together and then I had to figure out where due to…Dorchester and curfew and other issues..We ended up with a picnic in the astronomy tower…before Priaulx put the alarms on it.”
Archie: “Aye, we had a mutual conversation that we’d like to meet up really, but it was difficult to arrange. She did all the work arranging the tower picnic and, aye, can’t do that these days of course. I doubt I would have asked personally at that time, I admit. Not for lack of interest, but I simply wasn’t one to be thinking about anything romantic at that time. I was just in my own world of books and music. It would have taken me a while. “
what is Aislings favorite spell?
Archie: “For her, it’s the Hair Changing Spells, which I’m told if you have a thick amount of Irish red-hair is particularly useful in the morning rush”
Aisling: “yeaaahhh….best spell ever…before that it was potions and muggle methods to tame these”
What is Archie’s favorite subject?
Aisling: “Transfigurations . He’s quite good at them. Only took him one try to master some of the harder ones”
What is each other’s biggest pet peeve?
Aisling: “You mean besides being dirty? Gossips and rumormongers ..people being petty..that sort of thing.”
Archie: “Any sort of puerile or frivolous behaviour of any sort really. As a species, we don’t have time for that sort of thing.”
What would you say is the others weirdest quirk?
Aisling: “His, Scottish stiff uplipness. Which at times is Very useful but at other times….not so much.”
Archie: “Well, I suppose it’s the sort of … well … cat thing. She has very cat like mannerisms sometimes. I feel just somewhat like an armchair sometimes, unable to move from its feline creature inhabitor. I suppose it’s to be expected”
aisling: “like you complain…”
Leave it to the Head students to put stars back in all of our eyes. We have been so fortunate to spend so many years watching these two purrfect people fall in love over the last few years here in the halls and wish them all the luck in the world.
