Go with them. Leave. Escape and report.
Since his abduction from the Capitol, since the siege that only advanced the oncoming storm, he found himself a strange bond with that girl with the dark hair and brilliant mind. Though a rebel, he enjoyed speaking with her. She helped with his faltering memory, and when everyone else seemed so set against him, she was there to provide words of unbiased encouragement. Clint sent a final glance Clara’s way (she was safe, she would be okay) before bolting in the opposite direction.
He refused. Fighting against the words in his head, the misplaced desire to flee the castle with the rest of the rebellion - it just wasn’t him. It wasn’t him, and Clint refused to be governed by a wizard miles away and yet inside his head, attempting to plant a seed of doubt, acceptance that perhaps the only way to feel normal is to continue to listen to Loki. A man that forced him to murder, to spy, and to assist in the prolonged mistreatment of tributes in cells.
"They’re at Hogwarts!" Clint shouted internally as he ran. Down one hall, and turn the corner. The Capitol was coming to wipe out the rebellion. He could feel Loki’s presence shrink back slightly in surprise at the archer’s response. It was the first time Clint truly acknowledged the existence of the other, they first time they spoke since the siege on the Capitol. "That’s what you wanted right? You wanted to know where they were? Well, now you know!" But Clint was so careful to govern his thoughts. He blocked what he could from Loki. the information couldn’t have come from him.
You’ll only succeed in getting yourself killed.
Maybe that was the plan. “You don’t need me anymore. And I sure as hell don’t need you.” Clint knew that as he raced towards the armory, where he thought his bow and arrows will be kept (and at the very least, even if he couldn’t find the familiar recurve, there would be weapons) that the chances of him coming out alive were.… not favorable.
Clint’s death para will be up tonight between 9 EST and 10 EST.
Could be a possibility…rather unexpected, or maybe not. I think I’ll have to perform Legilimency as well, to remove his presence. I don’t know what it’ll do inside your mind. I have to ask again, are you sure about this?
Whatever it does to my mind, it’s worth the risk. Loki is trying to gain information through me about your rebellion. It’s safer if you do whatever needs to be done to just… get him out. Before he learns anything. I don’t want to be the reason your movement fails.
[She reached the library in no time, searching for a vacant area that didn’t have any books strewn about its floor. As she waited for Clint to settle, she removed her wand.] Now, the magic I think he is using is Legilimency, though I’m not too sure. He shouldn’t be speaking in your mind if I’m going about this correctly. Did you remember him ever chanting before he entered your mind?
I think so… The closer it gets to when he invaded my mind though, the blurrier my memory is. That or he’s intentionally keeping me from remembering it.
…Then brace yourself for a powerful amount of magic…
Follow me. I’d rather do this in a better environment. [Tilting her head, she started to head for the library.]
Can barely wait.
[Following after, Clint ignored the words of negativity and doubt that Loki was sending his was.]
And are you sure you’re okay with another witch in your mind?
No… Actually, between you and me, I hate magic. But I don’t think I have many other options.
….I’ll…I’ll do it, if I can. But there’s no guarantee it’ll work, understand?
You’re right, all of that is right. Right now it feels as if the world is burning, and at this rate none of that will even exist.
If Loki certainly does have control of your mind, any witch or wizard has a chance of being spelled by him also, when searching your mind.
I can’t live with him in my head. Not with what he’s trying to talk me into doing. Please. Is there any way you think it might be possible… Because someone around here has to be able to help me.
