Rochefort sits in his office, ignoring the quiet chatter of the portraits of past Headmasters around him. If anyone wishes to bother him, now's a good time.
"Eww, Mummy's dreadful. I don't know why Daddy married her. Honestly, it's not as though everyone doesn't know he's carrying on with that muggle man."
He snickers, playing with her hair some more. "As long as he's happy, dearest. Your mother is a harridan, but at least she's not inflicting herself on you or your father."
"Would you rather she were?"
"No. I'd rather she weren't such a harridan, though."
He pets her hair sympathetically.
She sighs a little.
He yawns, flopping over and using her for a pillow.
She pets him affectionately.
And lo, snuggling did occur!
