Teddy Lupin and the Daedalus Maze, Chapter Fourteen: The Halloween Feast, pt. 1

Teddy continues to focus a lot of energy on his his imagined feud with Harry, and it's starting to take a toll on the latter, who first shuts a door on Teddy, then goes to Neville to talk about it. Teddy, who has finally gotten around to opening his mail (he's as bad as I am), has decided to ask permission to write back to James, Al, and Lily. Because Harry's just so mean that he'd forbid it, of course. ;p At any rate, he uses the Marauder's Map to find Harry and just heads down, in time to overhear Harry complaining to Neville about his (Teddy's) behavior, and Neville countering with some "Oh, he's fifteen, it'll blow over" stuff. He is about to go into full-fledged angst when he hears Harry actually doing a nasty mimicry of him ("Not everyone can be Harry Potter!") and comparing him to Malfoy, but then the two men switch gears and talk about the other matters at school--randomly appearing figures that just as randomly disappear, and a great big flower in Fred's swamp, which looked vaguely familiar to Teddy as he passed it. The adults are fairly convinced the former is something simple, and the latter is a prank. In the process of discussing it, though, Neville identifies the flower as common to West Africa, and it dawns on Teddy why it looks familiar--he saw it in the Daedalus Maze.
