Log Title: All I can say is you save me
Location: Gryffindor Common Room
Characters Involved: Blake Parker (youllbeokay ) and Mags Rowley (peacelovechaser )
Summary of Log: Blake really needs to apologise to Mags!
Rating: PG, maybe?

If he was honest, Blake was feeling pretty weird lately, about a lot of things. His main concern, was of course, his girlfriend. Her behaviour was really strange. Some days, Mags could be really affectionate and cuddly - That's what Blake liked, although it seemed to become a little bit of a rarity these days, because of his girlfriend's constant mood swings. Mags was really snappy now, she'd flip at the smallest thing and bite Blake's head off with no thought of the consequences. Hell, she'd made it quite clear that she hated him the other day, then claimed it was down to being angry... but that wasn't something you just threw around with no thought about it, was it? And what was with the panicy outburst that Mags had posted on the network a while back? It wasn't something that he particularly wanted to bring up, but the truth behind the post had been flitting about Blake's mind ever since he'd read it. He was sure as hell it wasn't down to a cat dieing at all, it needed to be way more serious than that... But he couldn't risk having Mags turn on him again. He didn't want to have to face being told he was hated a second time within a week.

The second thing that Blake was concerned about was the whole situation with the Death Eaters that had plagued the school at the end of last year. The most that he knew, was that he was the one who had committed the kidnappings... but if that had been the case, then why was there a complete gap in his mind? He had absolutely no memory of what he had done throughout those months, and he was feeling way too guilty to ask the victims that had been in that cell what had happened to them. Hell, most of them refused to talk to him in the first place. Getting information out of them would be one hell of a task, considering virtually all of them seemed to hate him now. He wanted to know why he had even agreed to the kidnappings in the first place... surely his free will would stop him from ever agreeing to putting his fellow students in danger? Especially Lanisa and Abby. The entire idea of the Death Eaters had been a constant worry for Blake following their rescue from the hell-hole. What was to say the whole thing couldn't happen all over again? As far as he knew there had been little-to-no increase in security around Hogwarts...

Still. Death Eaters could wait until another day, because this moment was being dedicated to his girlfriend. Through one moment of weakness, he had turned on her and Blake Parker felt awful for that. He didn't care that Mags appeared to be getting away with treating him however the hell she wanted - Blake had already made it quite clear that he wasn't going to live without her, so that included being treated badly at the worst of times. And it was true that the Gryffindor Common Room was pretty quiet right now. Deserted, even. Taking his place on one of the comfy sofas, Blake stared down into the fire as he waited for his girlfriend to turn up. This quiet atmosphere was good. It could mean either a full-blown shouting match with no audience... or something else. He hoped for the something else, in all honesty. He was craving attention so badly now.

He stared at Mags for a moment, seemingly questioning why it seemed like she was telling him off for wanting to stay with her through this. What she was saying was truth - Something really trivial could break up a pair with ease inside these walls... something as heavy as this could rip people apart! "I guess..." Blake stroked her arm up and down a couple of times before finally giving her a straight answer. "I don't want you to feel like you're alone, you know? I mean I know you've got Ruby but..." He swallowed hard. Now that he was thinking this over, this was a pretty scary prospect... and if he was scared by this situation, he couldn't even begin to try and figure out how Mags was feeling right now. He had nothing to compare to this...

"I think you need as many people to turn to that you can get." Blake finally added. It was pretty obvious that Mags wasn't willing to let this news become the latest string of gossip being passed around the school, considering how long it had taken her to tell her own boyfriend. "And hell, if I broke up with you now, I'm being an awful boyfriend... Breaking up with you when you need people most? That's just heartless."

He chose to ignore that comment about the situation where she would have broken up with him. "We've been through a lot, you and me. We managed to get through it all..." Blake smoothed back Mags' hair, in a pause, somehow trying to encourage her to feel comfortable enough to mention anything else to him whilst she was in a good mood. "For all we know this could just be another thing we have to face together." He was offered an escape out of that topic of conversation when Mags brought up Jack. It was a pretty touchy subject, he had to agree. If Jack found out about Mags' pregnancy, he'd probably drop the whole opportunity with uni that he'd only just been offered. They couldn't have that... Hell no. "Jack doesn't need to know anything." Blake whispered, sealing his promise by kissing Mags' head.
