It's been a while since Ninny'd been to the Three Broomsticks, but his arse had been handed to him by his dragon, who was consistently an energetic and excitable little bugger. (If only he really were little.) Some firewhiskey would definitely help to sear away the soreness that accompanied a dragon tail to the bum.

He'd owled August to see if he'd like to stop by and catch up over drinks. Both of them had been busy lately for some reason or another. Ninian vaguely recalled that August had gone on some sort of trip about a month ago, and that he'd had a lady friend keeping him occupied, and he himself had been holed up in the Hebrides for a while, taking care of Sςlas. Soon, he spotted his blonde friend at the doorway and waved him over, finishing his shot quickly before gesturing for the bartender to serve him two more.

"Lang time nae see, 'ay?" he greeted, his smile a bit goofy. (Perhaps the three other shots of whiskey he'd had had something to do with it? Eh.)

    Business was good and he was going to go to the Coming Out Ball later that month, if only to create the illusion that he was fully over 'whatever that girl you were seeing was' for his parents and Idelle. Ferdinand was going to, they could be awkward together. August kept trying to convince himself that it would be fun but mostly just ended up convincing himself that at least Elsbeth seemed to have been behaving herself.

    As far as he knew.

    The invitation to meet Ninian MacFusty and catch up was a welcome one. Ninian would almost definitely be drunker than August would, and August knew that would be fairly entertaining - and besides, seeing Ninny always promised to be fun.

    He walked over to Ninny's table with his cane and sat down. "Right," he said, not having too much trouble understanding the Scottish accent. "How've you been? And the dragon?"

"Well, I can tell ye tha' dragon is right as rain, 'nd Ah shoulda just left 'im alone today, but ye know wha' they say... Some are wise and some are otherwise," he chuckled. "And ye? What 'ave ye been up to as of late?" Ninny continued, hoping to get the story about August's lady love. His own love life was miserably lacking (unless Maison de Venus counted but he doubted it). Hell, his dragon had been getting more action than he did lately!

The waitress brought over their shots and set them on the table. Ninny recognized her and sent a wink in her direction because she was lovely, but also because she'd brought alcohol. Nursing his shot, he slid the other over to August. He didn't exactly remember if his friend drank as much as he did, but offering him some was only good manners. Plus, drunkenness loved company.

"You Gryffindors," August said, shaking his head and feeling like he really ought to stop being surprised when Ninian managed to get himself injured by that scaley beast of his. One day he would learn - but until then, he would shake his head and think that his friend was crazy even as he remained confident that Ninny would never learn that some things, like dragons, really just ought to be left alone.

He took a sip of the shot and barely avoided making an unpleasant face. "Not much," he said, "The family is crazy, but they're always crazy, they've just re-established that lately."

Ninian was probably one of the only people August knew that had more siblings than he did. It was a little bit refreshing.

August loved his family, really he did, but sometimes he had a bit of trouble dealing with them.

Ninian laughed at his friend's comment. It was true: it was in his blood to get himself injured or at least banged up every once in a while. And, usually, with his family and the company he kept (meaning dragons), he didn't have to wait around for long.

"Crazy? M'brother Tavish dragged me to a brothel in the Slums the other day, tryin' to get me to bet on a virgin veela t'bed. I know crazy, my friend. What's yours done now?" he said conspiratorially, rolling his eyes. Ninny knew a bit of how the Echelon-Arnost clan was, yeah, but it didn't mean he wasn't interested in the latest installment in their saga. Taking a sip of his shot, he slowed down lest August have to help him drunkenly stagger out the door by the end of their meeting.

The brief mention of Tavish made him want to send him a letter or something, because it had been a while since they'd talked. He wondered if he was still trying to re-bed his old friend Vera. Ninian'd heard plenty about her over the years, and couldn't help but feel jealous that Tav had a ladyfriend and he didn't. From the looks the waitress was giving him, though, he doubted he wouldn't have a ladyfriend soon, if only for the night.

    August was halfway through a sip of his shot when Ninny's words sunk in - he swallowed, nearly choked, and hit himself in the chest with his fist in order to keep himself from actually choking.

    "Oh, they've done nothing that mad," August said, "Hell, your story makes what they actually did less crazy by comparison. No, Beth and Sam just decided it would be appropriate to hire vampire hunters. Idelle's Idelle, Leisa's Leisa and now she lives here, the usual." If he hadn't been used to it by now he would have been stupid; but sometimes his siblings' actions actually managed to shock August.

    Namely, when two of his siblings hired the Van Helsings to kill his fiancee. Or when Beth tried to stab his fiancee. Really, anything they had ever done involving Miss Lyra Potter had managed to surprise August.

    "Your brother sounds vaguely terrifying," August said, "Is he one of the obscenely tall ones, too?"

Finding himself laughing again, Ninny commended himself for having the idea of inviting August along. Were he sober, he would have been worried for his friend's health - seeing as he was red in the face and coughing - but at the moment he simply found it amusing. Even more amusing was the fact that it'd been spurred on by his story. Having brothers like his was difficult and strange, but Merlin did it make for good stories!

"Vampire hunters? Fer wha'?" he said after a moment of processing August's words. That was new. He knew plenty about dragon hunters - Tav and Tor, of course - but not much about vampire hunters. The Van Helsings were a lot of 'em; that was the extent of Ninian's knowledge. Dragons were his supernatural creature of choice: all the other things that went bump in the night were somebody else's problem.

Ninny chortled when he mentioned obscene tallness. "Aye! The tallest, I think. Though he may just say that to make others think 'im terrifying, but he ain't a bad bloke." he commented, forcing himself not to toss back the rest of his firewhiskey. Slow and steady won the race, after all. The race to what, Ninny had no clue, but he was probably going to get there first with the head start he had on August.

FOR AUGUST

    "What do you think!" August said. "They hired vampire hunters for vampire hunting. Although I'm pretty sure Sophronia Van Helsing would accept payment for punching people every time they do something stupid." Hell, she would probably love that. Next time they talked to each other (and specifically and carefully avoided mentioning The Lyra Issue) August would suggest it.

    August shrugged. "Sounds like my housekeeper and threatening to hit me with a lamp," he said, "Although sometimes I think she's serious." Joanna was lovely, really - although she was not a woman August ever wanted to cross, both because she knew absolutely all of his secrets and because he was pretty sure she could kill him if she really wanted to.

    He was just about done with his first shot and ordered another one even though he still didn't really feel like actually getting drunk. "Anything else interesting happen lately?" He was certain that Ninny had been up to something, because August was always certain of things like that, and was just curious enough to probe.
