There was one little problem with working in the department that she did, and that was the utter lack of gossip. Most of the hitwizards were older, way past the kind of childish shenanigans that went on when so-and-so dated what's-her-name…and evidently, when Draco Malfoy dated Astoria Greengrass. So, naturally, Gavi was behind on these things.

"He should be," she agreed lightly. "For one thing, he's not hot for Potter, which should give you a fighting chance."

She wrinkled her nose. Even Gavi knew about the Potter Draco tension, "Yeah Potter ended up on the date, he actually punched Draco...it was a hot mess." she sighed shaking her head. "I should have known better...but" she gave a shrug before moving on. "You actually think I have a shot with George." It was the first time she actually felt a little embarrassment about who she was. She hadn't mentioned to anyone else, Pansy or Blaise or even Uncle Jack, that she had asked George and she was sort of nervous talking about it. He was a blood traitor, daddy would not be happy.

Actually, it sounded like Gavi's kind of date...well, except for the part where Malfoy was probably gay, because that wouldn't have ended precisely how she liked either.

Astoria's question elicited an amused eyeroll. "Cheri, blokes like George Weasley are not complex. Just be yourself, laugh at his jokes, and don't mention Malfoy too often or you'll come off like a creepy weirdo." Gavi shrugged. "Oh, and maybe wear something low-cut." She nodded to herself, like the oracle of dating had spoken.

It was clear Gavi had more experience with boys than Story. Story was more of the drunken blowjobs or making out in the cloakroom type of girl versus actually going on dates. She had been on a few before Draco most of the cods too boring to see more than once. Of course they had all been prescanned by her father and mother compared to boys she had actually chosen herself. And she was more than fairly certain that George would not be up to her father's requirements.

"Believe it or not I don't think George even looked below my neckline our whole conversation." she giggled. Which if he hadn't would be a feat in itself considering that's exactly where most men had their conversations with her. "I hope he isn't swinging the same way I am thinking Draco does..."

Gavi smirked. "It's really hard not to look at them, no matter what you're into," she pointed out. "That takes effort. Do you know who makes that kind of effort?" She arched a brow and didn't give Astoria time to answer. "A man who wants the opportunity to date you rather than getting slapped for leering."

"Besides," she continued, examining her nails minutely, before drawing her wand to fix a raggedy one. "George is pretty definitively not gay."

"Draco...never even glanced at them..." her eyes widening finally putting it together, "Do you really think him and Potter? Are like...you know behind Ginny's back!" Oh that was too good. Far too good...Watching Gavi she grinned, "here, lemme show you something my sister taught me. She's a bloody brill at manis." she pulled out her wand and held out her hand for Gavi's. "And should I take it that you know this personally about George." she felt a wave of jealousy rush through her and a pull at the pit of her stomach.

"Oh, no, they're still at the extended foreplay stage," Gavi snorted dismissively. "Neither one of them has figured it out yet. I'm surprised you didn't, considering their obsession with one another at school."

Not that she was judging. The trope of star-crossed lovers was one of her favourites, and Merlin knew they didn't come much more star-crossed than Potter and Malfoy.

Gavi lowered her wand and obediently offered her hand to Astoria. Although the majority of her nails were neat and polished, her skin was rough and scarred from her job.

A blink greeted the tone of her final question, and she frowned. "No, Fred was my -" a pause. Boyfriend wasn't the right word. Friend didn't cover enough. "He was my twin. But I know George, and enough of his former girlfriends, to tell you he's not into dudes."

"I was more stuck in the doodling his name with hearts around it phase, pretending he was looking at me instead of Pansy..." Story confessed inspecting the other girls nails shyly, "and I guess Potter too.." She pulled out her wand and started in on the incantations that Daphne had taught her, the first smoothing her skin and softening her cuticles, but the next words out of her mouth made her freeze.

Story's parents weren't Death Eaters by any means, but the did sympathize with the pureblood only stance, and therefore they had whisked her and Daphne away as soon as possible when things went pear shaped. So in her mind most of the other kids were not involved in the war. She knew that was false, clearly false, but it was easier to pretend people like Lavender Brown, Collin Creavy, and... Fred hadn't died. But they did and every time she looked at George and his missing ear she knew that. Her lips pressed together and she looked up at Gavi.

It was one of the first times she felt bad about the war.

"I'm sorry, I didn't know." There was a lot she didn't know. Looking down she kept working on her hands wanting to make it the best manicure now she could. "I just hope he actually likes me..." she whispered not sure if she should move on in the conversation.

Gavi swung her legs back and forth, only a little and not enough to dislodge herself from the perch on Astoria's desk, and she shrugged expressively. Fighting for the resistance had made a certain equilibrium about the brevity of life both inevitable and necessary. "It's fine. He's a hero," she added. "If you have to be dead, you may as well be a hero."

To Astoria's concerns, she could offer no reassurance beyond what she already had. Either they would get on, or they wouldn't. Instead, she watched the younger girl at work, and tilted her head. "You have a strange relationship with your sister," she suggested, after a moment. "Why do you call her a -" pause, flick of her eyes up to the ceiling and back down. Gavi wondered if she should stop smoking stings in the morning. "Two-bit tart?"

She kept mumbling spells as the magic smoothed calluses and made Gavi's palms smooth and supple. Swallowing hard and giving a sympathetic smile at her hero idealism. As she kept working she heard the question about Daphne and sighed. "She's just...hard to handle. I swear a fizzing whizzbee's sherbert ball is smarter than her." Story's nose wrinkled, "Plus she's kind of a whore. I mean she slept with Draco..." she mumbled still bitter about the whole thing. Pursing her lips she looked up at Gavi, thinking for a moment before flicking her wand and a deep gunmetal silver with diamond like flecks color covered her nails. "You look like you like dark and tough."

There was no arguing with her assessment - Daphne certainly wasn't known for her intelligence. On the other hand, she seemed pretty harmless.

Gavi snorted. "If sleeping with Malfoy is all it takes to make someone a whore, you better start handing out the red A's; to hear the rumour mill tell it, he's banged half the Ministry."

She didn't actually have a preference when it came to nailpoilsh and the like, because girlie frivolities weren't things she often indulged in. Nevertheless, Astoria's skills weren't overblown - she really had done a great job. Gavi beamed. "These are great, thanks!"

Story pursed her lips and gave a sigh. "She was my sister who sat and listened to me talk about how I was going to be Mrs. Draco Malfoy and how much I loved him and all that junk for seven years...while she slept with him..." her voice was bitter, hurt, and disappointed. "So it takes more than sleeping with him, it was more she didn't...she knew I liked him and she still did it, and yeah she's dumber than hippogriff droppings, but she is my sister." Suddenly Story's eyes went wide. "I'm sorry I didn't mean to drop that on you. Its just...I've been holding it it for a while."

Gavi was grateful that she was an only child. By the sounds of things, siblings weren't much fun at all. She was of the school of thought that people who wronged her should be set on fire at her soonest convenience, but you couldn't do that to your own family, allegedly.

"Don't worry about it," she shrugged. "Maybe if my relations complained about each other more, they wouldn't try to murder one another quite so frequently. Venting's good for the soul."

"She's just a lot to deal with sometimes..." Story sighed wrinkling her nose again. "I'm sure I'll get over it but the fact she didn't seem to even care about me really isn't okay."

Pulling up her own hand she looked at her nails. They weren't in dire need of retouching but she couldn't help but change the color, this time a deep blood red, before looking up at Gavi, "We should get lunch sometime. I could use some girl time with someone other than my normal crew."

She didn't know what to say to that, so she tactfully didn't say anything. The differences in their upbringings were neon and glaring, and Gavi was wary of seeming insensitive.

Grateful when Astoria changed the subject, she nodded. "How about tomorrow? I've got the Floo-address for this new bistro in Paris I've been meaning to try out."

"oh! That sounds brilliant!" She looked around slyly, "Maybe we skip out a bit early. I bet these big oofs could keep the place from burning down without me for a few hours." she giggled and sighed. It would be nice having a bit of girl time without it being Pansy or Millie...or Blaise...though he wasn't totally a girl.

"Très bien," she grinned, hopping down from her desk. "Speaking of burning things down, I have an appointment with a troublesome building. Meet you in the foyer about twelve-thirtyish." Gavi performed a little finger wave before she skipped out in the direction of the lifts, calling a goodbye to Mr. Jameson and his balls as she left.
