The week after Valentine's Day finds Professor Anderson in his office late -- past dinner time.

It's partly the latest batch of papers he has to grade; it's partly the letter from Wilcox that came this morning. No news of Natalia -- there never is -- but there are a few unpleasant rumours in the Scottish wizarding community about nasty spates of Muggle-baiting, and complaints of harassment against Muggle-borns. Wilcox phrases it as if he wants Anderson's professional opinion on the situation, but the true point behind it is obvious: make sure your family is safe.

He just doesn't feel up to navigating the Great Hall tonight.

Someone knocks at his door.

"Good news," she says. "The chocolates and their senders were universally harmless. Someone tried to drug the smaller box, but I believe Tony told you how that turned out, and the individual in question is not likely to try again after the initial effort failed."

"Yes, that," she says with a dismissive flick of her hand.

"I'd assumed that part was obvious. Love potion," she clarifies. "Not a very strong one. Warm fluttery feelings rather than deadly obsession."

Sherlock shrugs.

"Well, yes. But you must have expected as much."

"Granted. But it did not succeed—could not have succeeded."

"Because of Tony's intervention. Because the original offender did not have the competence to pull it off. Because you noticed anyway."

"I suppose not."

She hesitates.

Then: "You weren't at dinner."

"Not particularly. May I ask why?"

Date: 2011-12-14 05:54 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] calendarofcrime.livejournal.com
"You may take it to mean I haven't yet."

Date: 2011-12-14 06:15 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] calendarofcrime.livejournal.com
"Right," she says dryly. "And will take that to mean I may not ask."

From: [identity profile] calendarofcrime.livejournal.com
"I don't know what you mean."
