Trophy Showcase:
Sia's first two years at uni had been a lot. She'd been so excited to be off on her own studying and hanging out with friends and just generally being a 'Real Adult' away from her family (though Sully's lingering magical stuff always seemed to intrude on her life even when she was away from him too). And it had been fun, but also terrifying and exhausting in equal measures. With the end of her second year coming up though, Sia liked to think she'd mostly gotten the hang of things, and one that had definitely helped with all that had been October.

Sia wasn't sure what she could call things between her an October beyond a lifeline, but she wasn't going to question it. She didn't think she could get through a day without texting the other girl, complaining about assignments or her roommate not doing their dishes, and definitely couldn't last the week without meeting up to grab a coffee or just lay around her flat, as they were right now. Sia had been flipping idly through Netflix, October's head resting on her lap while Sia gently playing with October's hair. Labels or not, having October around kept Sia at an equilibrium, though the more she thought about it, the more strange it was that she didn't have a name for it. "Hey, wait. Are we dating?" She asked suddenly, glancing down at October's face below her curiously.

Trophy Showcase:
Leaving the magical world had been a spite decision, there was no question about that, but the more removed she got from that life, the more October was also certain that it had been the right decision. Reinventing herself hadn't quite gone the way she had planned, it was impossible to leave behind the dorkiness that felt... built into her bones, but the more time she spent making new friends, settling into her new life, the more she felt like that... didn't really matter. She had found a world unlike Hogwarts, where she didn't feel like her dorkiness and humiliations were following her at every turn.

And she had found Sia. That was really when things had started to click, a party October almost hadn't even gone to. She couldn't imagine how different her life would be if she had stayed home that night, how miserable she would be without the companionship they had shared for the last year. Sia understood her, better than anyone ever had before. And the more clear that became, the more scared October got. Though her wand mostly lived unused in her desk drawers, magic would always be a part of October's past, more importantly her family. What would happen if the time came to tell her? How could she expect Sia to see her the same after hiding something so huge for so long? Even Sia's gentle fingers in her hair couldn't chase the worries from October's mind, as nice as they were. The only thing that rattled her out of her thoughts was a question October had been half wanting, half dreading for what felt like forever. And Sia had just... said it. She tensed at once and looked up at Sia, mouth opening and closing for a moment as she tried to find the words. "We're... I mean... are we?" She asked slowly, searching Sia's face for answers. She knew how she felt about the other woman clear as day, but putting a title on this gave it weight October didn't know how to balance yet. She knew she would never say no though, never in a million years.
