We Must Be Swift As A Coursing River (Fabian)

People often thought that pandas were only cuddly and sleepy and chewy. As they were indelibly cute, if Tyler did say so himself, it was easy to forget that a raging panda was fiercely protective, especially of the young, and vicious in battle. Sort of like Po, Kung Fu Panda, in battle mode, though significantly less silly when it came down to it. Honestly, that movie had done more damage to panda credibility than people realised. Carter had taken him to see it, and spent an hour and a half laughing in his face thereafter.

The point was pandas could be vicious. Tyler had vivid memories of how he had felt when trapped in Panda-form all those years ago in training, his stance and how the rage seemed to lodge into his shoulder blades, how all he saw was the enemy, and how absolutely nothing would have budged him from his position except, eventually, that enormous sedative.

Funny, how the sight of Wentworth could evoke very similar feelings.

There were no young to be protected, and indeed, Wentworth and he were on the same side. Not to mention, this was a training exercise in spellcasting. But all his instincts were oriented towards wanting to cast a spell or two towards Wentworth and not the practice targets that would pop up around the training room once the exercise began. Why they had to train together was anyone's guess, but here they were, Tyler feeling more abrasive then was ordered for, and Wentworth... well, there was just something off about that guy.

"Get ready, we'll begin in three minutes," said the instructor, and the door closed behind her. Pulling his wand out, Tyler examined the man who was for some reason not his opponent but supposed to be his partner here.

Well, psh. He didn't need Wentworth to partner with him. For the purpose of the exercise, he could possibly be civil, and give it a shot. "Just you keep your panties on," said Tyler, in the spirit of partnership, and then cleared his throat. Well, okay, maybe he wasn't going to be civil, but this would be over soon, right?

The lights dimmed a little, and Tyler did a once over. They were at the center of the room, and his ears were peeled for sound that would indicate it was time to start-- THERE. "CONFRINGO!" he yelled, instinctively, forgetting to be stealthy and practice a greater finesse.

This was most definitely a joke. Fabian did not need to do spell training again, he’d only just finished a refresher session two months ago. They were meant to come around every six months or so. He’d bet his life savings it had something to do with Nathan. His old tutor was probably getting his own back. Although Fabian couldn’t think what for.

Any protests had been futile, the instructor wasn’t having any of it. Not even his charm could work on her. Grumpy bint. So here Fabian stood, in the middle of the training room. To his right was Haddock, a man he’d never really got on with since starting at the Ministry. The reason for that remained a mystery. A mystery Fabian couldn’t be bothered to figure out. Some people just didn’t like him, that was that. Other men found him intimidating, and he couldn’t blame them.

There was no reason for him to act hostile towards the other man, even if Haddock was a weird one. “Don’t worry, I will. You’re not my type.” Fabian smirked, looking ahead rather than at the man. This was going to be entertaining at least. He slipped his wand out of his sleeve, gripping the handle firmly. Eyes scanning the room for threats. The three minutes must have been up by now. It was in that exact moment, Haddock cast the first spell. A target had popped up to the right, so Fabian let his companion take care of it.

First target! Nine o’clock! “Expelliarmus!” He snapped his wand in the targets directions. “One!” His voice called towards Haddock, deciding to count his hits. For the fun of it.

Second target! Twelve o’clock! “Reducto!” Fabian swung his arm to the right, catching the next target just before Haddock got the chance. “Two!”

“Expelliarmus!”

Really?
Tyler scoffed. Was that what they did in the fancy Auror department? A basic disarming spell, psh. Give him something to explode any day--

“One!”

Wha- HEY. Tyler's eyes snapped to his, for the purpose of this stupid exercise, colleague. The man did move with a degree of finesse and practiced ease, but in the fact of the competition he had just swung on him, Tyler did not have the time or inclination to admire these. Indeed, Wentworth was now moving ahead in the competition.

“Reducto! Two!”

Never mind that Tyler hadn't known they were in competition, he was a true Gryffindor and not one to back down from an issued challenge. Subterfuge and conniving were best left to the wormy snaky types. Of which Wentworth was one, for starting a contest without stating its terms. But -- he swivelled to his left, "STUPEFY! Two!" -- Tyler wasn't about to lose just because he hadn't known they were playing. It did not occur to him to not entertain the competitive display.

"OPPUGNO!" The last one was thrown at a target to his right, forcing it to attack the target that had popped up right next to it. "Three.. and four," he said, in a pleased tone, not a little cocky, snerking at Wentworth.
