My Grandmother was here. And she understands--I just...needed a little time. To be alone, you know? And it was fine.

But I thought I'd try to make dinner, and everything just...got a bit out of hand. And I destroyed the kitchen.

You didn't-- that's all, you know-- easy to fix.

Reparo.



You're okay. Just sit tight for a bit.

No-- no, don't be sorry. You're okay. It's fine, Teddy. You just were a little too ambitious. It was bound to happen- you've been cooped up in the house for ages with people waiting on you hand and foot.

My magic...




Everything is haywire. I can't--None of my spells turn out...

I don't know what's wrong.

Shh. It's okay-- you, you haven't done any magic in weeks, Teddy. And your healers have all said that you need to take it slow, and not pressure yourself too much, because it's going to take a while for everything to come back.



It's okay. You're okay-- it's going to be fine, I promise.

I know. It's okay to be scared, Teddy. I'm scared, too. But you're getting better, and as long as we have each other we'll be okay, yeah?

Well not now, no.




James, what if...


What if it doesn't get better? What if I can't cook dinner or write a letter or...or...

teach my classes?

I keep reading Fantastic Beasts, and it just won't stay in my head, James. I can't remember names.

You need more time, Teddy. No-one else is worried about how you're doing, are they? You've been through a lot. You were in a coma for weeks and sustained brain damage that we don't even fully understand.

I know it's frustrating, but you need to give yourself some slack. Look how much you can do that you couldn't do as recently as Wednesday! You'll get back to how you were, but you need to be patient and not so hard on yourself.

Yeah, yeah.

Don't be, yeah? If I were in your place I'd have torn down the house by now.
