Warming up to the idea, Gabriel smiled as he nodded enthusiastically. They would have to be pretty careful choosing their words when telling her, not wanting to shoot themselves in the foot before they even really started. They may have been alike in a tendency for tricks, but she was still their mother and Gabriel wasn’t looking to get in trouble both at school and home for this.
“Okay so maybe it’s worth a shot. We’ve got to make sure however we get ahold of her is Crowley-proof though, which’ll be pretty difficult if he even begins to think about starting to maybe suspect we’re up to something.” It seemed to Gabriel that Crowley was always managing to appear both entirely disinterested in the ongoings of his students, and obsessively in the know about everyone’s secrets. Sometimes Gabe counted it as a miracle he and Balthazar’s own angelic secret hadn’t been figured out by the house leader.
“Mm, yes. That takes out letters and regular fire-calls. We could send her a Patronus, but those are always unpredictable and tricky for long conversation.” Balthazar worried his lower lip as he thought, knowing that it would be crucial to make it both easy to use and hard to track, thanks to Crowley. It seemed to him that their plan, while remarkable, was only getting more and more complicated as time went on. Mostly thanks to their Head of House.
“Of course, there’s always the option of speaking face to face, but we would have to plan rather far in advance to make sure everything is going smoothly.”
