Aonghas had left Astronomy feeling a little empty, his heart hadn’t really be in his education for a while, he went to the lessons, enjoyed them enough and did well, but the older he got, the closer to the hard OWLs he got the less inclined he really was towards it. The more he recognised that everything he was doing would be for nothing. His quidditch felt more pointless now, especially as a full member of the team, he was taking the position from someone who just maybe would do something with it. For Aonghas it was just for fun. The astronomy lesson had just brought it all home, this feeling in his chest that had been building since his brother had been kicked out of the family home. The universe was so large, filled with so many stars in so many galaxies and he was so small and insignificant. He didn’t really matter, his actions would be done and forgotten, his school would be done and immediately forgotten. He had a job, he had a future preset. Perhaps this was what drove his brother to date, to fall in love with the idea of free will, but Aonghas couldn’t let that him. Aonghas stared blankly ahead, his gaze sitting on the homework he had been attempting to do for hours. Dinner had passed around him, and he was one of only a few left in the hall. Aonghas hadn’t written more than the title, he hadn’t so much as lift his quill in hours, but he moved now. He pulled a jug of water towards him, he put the homework on an empty plate and grabbed his wand. He pointed it at it and then said, ”Incendio,” feeling a certain level of joy as the piece of paper caught fire. Burning and burning away until there was nothing in the plate but smouldering ash.
