Being bad boys and drinking (shh! don't tell the adults); for stillanoutsider

Teddy Lupin had a reasonable amount of confidence -- at times, too much, at other times, not nearly enough -- in himself, but he was also acutely aware of the fact that he was still young and trying to "find himself," figure out the sort of person he wanted to be. He was done trying to live up to some ghostly image of success by following the paths his parents had taken. Not that he wasn't proud of them, but the life they led wasn't for him. He enjoyed magic, of course, but more as a hobby and lifestyle than a career choice.

He was aware, too, that he could seem dull to the younger kids he'd grown up with. Teddy had expected himself to be the responsible one, and kept his rebellious tendencies out of their view as much as possible. Now that he was older, it was easier to do the things he wanted to do more often, versus doing what he felt like he had to do.

And right now, he wanted to get drunk and play pub games and get caught up in whatever antics naturally arose while he was with Albus Potter. Al was underage as far as alcohol went, but Teddy found it fun in a 'breaking-the-rules' sort of way, and found he couldn't care less what the rules were at the moment. Maybe he'd learn something.

"I know a few drinking games, if you want to be less tedious about this."

Albus wasn't exactly a stranger to alcohol; he seemed always to be trying to steal some from Zabini's stash for him and Scorpius. But this was so much easier. At least that's why he told himself he was here. Not because he, shudder, liked Teddy's company.

"See, you need to employ the use of games to stop your company being boring." He could see that his calling of Teddy boring was really affecting the older boy (could he still be called a boy?) but that only encouraged him. Anyway, he was teasing. Teddy was the most intriguing of those Albus had grown up with.
And for the most part, Teddy understood that it was all in good fun, much as Albus would try to convince him otherwise. Teddy had an endless amount of patience, and the good fortune to have been blessed with a sunny disposition that made it easy to let things roll off of him. That didn't mean he didn't get annoyed, of course, nor did it mean he was without a need to prove himself.

Why he felt the need to prove himself to Albus, of all people, remained to be seen.

"Or to make my company all the more thrilling," he countered. "Russian Roulette. You in or out?"
Albus had never been called good-natured, it seemed those Weasley genes had almost entirely skipped him. One of the reasons he felt so left out of the Potter-Weasley clan. Still, he was sure that if there was anyone else to appreciate feeling out of place it would be Teddy.

"I'm in." He raised a single eyebrow.
And Teddy did appreciate and understand Al's feelings of not quite fitting in. Teddy was still trying to figure himself out. He didn't know where he belonged; all he really knew was whom he liked, and loved, and that he meant something to some people.

"Know the rules?" If he did know, and Teddy repeated them out loud without checking, it'd be rather patronizing.
"I know the rules. Although I'm not normally a game player. I don't see the point. I just drink. But whatever floats your boat." Al shrugged, if it meant Teddy was buying him alcohol he'd play pretty much any game that was asked of him.
"The point? Fun." Teddy gestured to the bartender that they'd need a few pints, and then found a secluded table in the corner. He'd mentioned butterbeer, but deciding to up the ante, Teddy ordered firewhiskey. And another non-alcoholic drink that looked like firewhiskey. And then he filled up three shot glasses with the non-alcoholic beverage and three with the whiskey. Then, with his wand, he mixed the glasses together so fast they wouldn't be able to tell which was which.

"I'll go first," Teddy decided, grabbing a glass and downing it in one gulp.
