Only the words are mine, and that’s probably up for philosophical debate.Notes:
Boy do I wish I'd had more words for this one. I don't know that it came off well.
Buffy’s eyes went from the little figurine spinning in her palm to the redheaded wizard who had given it to her. "And this is?"
His eyes, in turn, went from Buffy to the picture of his twin. "What do you mean?" they said together.
"Okay, so obviously it’s a spinny little guy who... spins. Which is... great. I guess?" Buffy’s brows furrowed. "But I kinda don’t need one."
George Weasley shrugged while the picture of his twin chuffed in the background. "Actually true, but you keep talking about your Point Me..."
"When you have a perfectly good wand," the picture of Fred continued.
"Point me?" Buffy repeated. "That’s, like, a first year spell, right?"
"Precisely," the brothers said in unison. "But seeing as how you’re new to the wizarding world," George said, "it seemed like a nice gesture."
"Uh, thanks. Except, I kinda mastered that the day your mom taught it to me. Soooooo, I don’t know what you guys are talking about. Like, at all."
"You are forever nattering on about this Mr. Point Me whenever some Dark Creature rears it’s ugly--"
"Oh! Mr. Pointy!" Buffy grinned. "My favorite stake. Not just for vampires any more."
