Pirate: "Wenches, would you like to play Magic with John and I?"
Batgirl/Wenches: "Wow! Grammar!
[General admiration for the grammar improvement.]
[Kiwi covers her mouth and bites her lip, harder with each statement.]
B: "What are youuuu giggling about?"
Kiwi: [Whispers behind her hand.] "It's not actually correct..."
B: "But it is quite an improvement on his usual speech!" [Pirate in the background hollers out some loud unintelligible phrase.] "See? It wasn't too loud or slurred... but why isn't it right?"
[Kiwi explains subjects, objects and prepositional phrases with examples for proper use.]
[Housemates blink at her and chuckle over how complex it all is.]
B: "I'm glad you don't read through my papers!"
Kiwi: [Blushes.] "And I was doing so well with not pointing out grammar the way I used to... But good enunciation, Pirate!"

Kiwi: "I have to be off writing Harry Potter stories! But this time it doesn't have to have sex! Woot woot!" [Waves her hand around in the air.]
[Roberts converses with her.]
Roberts, at last inquiring: "Are you writing...oh, what is it called, FF? I don't know the terminology, no no--slash!"
Kiwi: [Grinning.] "Femslash! Lesbians rather than gay men. But no one minds much, because it's the older women in the books and they're all written pretty gay anyway. All the professors seem to be." [She explains Rolanda, with which Roberts agrees immediately; Amelia Bones and her monocle, to Roberts' approval; Wilhelmina and her hair and pipe, which Roberts agrees with once Willa's favourite animal has been clarified as 'unicorn'.]
Batgirl: "Are you saying all the characters in Harry Potter are gay?"
Kiwi: "Not at all! The younger generation are all remarkably straight. It seems the older generation is rather gay to balance the breeding-like-bunnies younger population."
R: "Ah! A flaw! How could there be a younger generation if the older generation were all gay?"
Kiwi: "The Hogwarts professors, to our knowledge, don't have children, 'cept maybe Sprout, who I think is straight or flexible and may have had children."
R: "And Albus was gay."
[Kiwi nods her approval.]
Pirate: "I just thought the use of the Room of Requirements was pretty great."
R: "Do you think all the professors went in there for orgies?"
P: [As it would be yelled in a Powerthirst video:] "PROFESSORGY!"
[Everyone dies laughing.]

That is what I have been up to since returning home. Well, that and writing. I have written one section of my hoggywarty. Thank you, 1000 word mark!

R: "Ah! A flaw! How could there be a younger generation if the older generation were all gay?" You may have to explain to this young man about the multi-purposeness of the Turkey Baster.

It would be an act of kindness to delay your explanation until after the Christmas Lunch, however. Don't want the poor fellow to turn green at what's supposed to be one of the highlights of the year.

And tell him to keep his wicked plotbunnies to himself, will you? I so do not need this inspiration right now.

I was very tempted to bring a Turkey Baster into the conversation. :B *snickers at the Christmas Lunch comment.*

*Salutes.* I will tell him to keep his wicked sexy-time-and-otherwise plotbunnies to himself, to protect dear Real Snape's over-active brain!

Oh pesky grammar. The best mistakes are when someone is trying very hard to get it right.
