    Note: This RP is moved from another site in January 2014 and has been going on actively for a year before that, so the already happened chapters have been posted below so people get the general idea what has happened thus far. The currently active chapter will be posted as the latest, and the old ones will be crossed over except for the chapter summaries.

    [This chapter has several different narrations in the old threads in the old site, so thus they are not posted in here.]

    Current time in the RP
    September 2nd
    Monday
    First school day.

    Weather outside
    Sunny, cloudless as if the thunderstorm last night had never happened.
    Moist and cold in the morning, but gradually getting warmer as the sun climbs over the sky.
    The sun will set just before 8.00 pm.

    Related things
    Students should follow their schedules and start with the breakfast in the Great Hall, and then go to classes they have.
    Players are allowed to choose the classes for their characters themselves; mandatory subjects can held only two Houses in one class, but elective subjects can be mixture of all Houses in one class.
    Players are allowed to start their games any time within the 24 hours of this day. (This is so XxNightShadexX doesn't feel left out 'cause of his character.) Just so you know, you can't just jump in the middle of others game and fast forward the time unless it's okay with the others in the same thread. I'd prefer the players of course to start the posts how their characters would wake up and so on, moving towards the evening slowly, but unfortunately for Aeorious that isn't possible, so exceptions needed to be made.
    New note on every House's noticeboard.

    The first school week is coming to an end. Students wake up in their dorms to yet another morning which is going to be full of classes, but today they are buzzing with energy. Why? Because it is Friday, of course. What does Friday mean? Weekend! However, before the students can reach their whole two days of freedom they should conquer the Friday first.

    As the morning sun raises, the children stir in their beds, and get ready for breakfast. For the looks of it, seems like it is another peaceful day in Hogwarts. Some of them do not feel as giddy as the others, because they know they have some detention to attend after school, which keeps them further away from their long awaited first weekend. After school the Quidditch Pitch is open for free training for all students for the Saturday's tryouts, and students are allowed to borrow school's own broomsticks (they are not very good though) for that -- however, using the Beater's bats, quaffles, bludgers and the golden snitch is out of the question. So that means kids need to use some imagination in this matter and thus again, magic comes very handy. The upcoming tryouts are also another reason why people are buzzing with energy because hey, who would not want to be part of their House's Quidditch team?

    However, there are whispers among few certain students, a group of friends that are definitely up to something...

    Current time in the RP
    September 6th
    Friday

    Weather outside
    Sunny but partly cloudy.
    The weather is slowly starting to cool down towards the coming winter, which can be smelled in the air. Few of the green leaves have started to take some colors of fall in them, but it is barely noticeable. The air gets warmer the further the sun climbs upon the sky, and cools down again when it sets just before 8.00 pm.

    Events and related things
    - Potions class for mixed houses.
    - Detention to those characters who have it.
    - Some Quidditch related training after school for the upcoming Saturday's tryouts (the characters will have to do it among themselves if they want, the school isn't arranging any.)
    - Daily Prophet news can be seen in the Great Hall thread, which the characters get to read if they order the newspaper.
    - House Points updated in Entrance Hall thread.

    Note
    When the Friday is over, we move to Saturday after I narrate it. Of course I'll be checking that everybody that are active can keep up.
    Don't know where to start posting? My personal advice would either to start your character's dorm room, or just jump straight to Great Hall for breakfast. For Professor characters practically the same applies. If someone else wants to hold a class with their teacher character during Friday, let me know.

    The long waited Quidditch Tryouts are here!

    The morning dawns upon Scotland with another promisingly good weathered day. And what would be better use of it than do some Quidditch! Or at least tryouts for it, the first game is still weeks away. The Quidditch Pitch is reserved for each House for two hours at a time, so the students can show their skills and maybe they will get picked into their House teams if they have it what it takes. Enthusiasm and hope is electrifying the air, and it is hard not be get excited with the others even if you are not going to take part of the tryouts yourself.

    At the same time the a gang of Slytherin boy's -- the Slytherin's Quidditch Team Captain, Nicholas Lockett, being their leader -- are coming up with a plan with something they found in the maze like dungeons, and how to use it for their advantage; a large hidden pathway that leads under the castle and links into natural caves. The boys have not yet ventured very far into the caves, but they are about to tonight. However, something lurks in there, and it is not alone. The boys are about to venture into something that is over their heads, and disturb the inhabitants of the caves. This should get interesting...

    Current time in the RP
    September 7th
    Saturday

    Weather outside
    Sunny and nearly cloudless, very windy.
    The wind is a bit sharp, cooling the air so students that are about to fly in the Tryouts should wear something to keep them warm while in the air. Otherwise the students should be okay with light clothing.

    Events and related things
    - Quidditch Tryouts for each House. See the times from each House's noticeboard.
    - Secret event following the Tryouts.
    - Daily Prophet headlines updated in Great Hall.

    Note
    Stay sharp for narrations, they are going to start popping up in the threads when I see fit!

    October has brought the colors of the autumn and chilly air. First Quidditch games are near, so the teams are training hard. After the death of a student, the air has been quite heavy around the school, and there has been some difficulties between the dead girl's parents and the school. The situation did end up for both's favor; the original goal was to get the school to shut down, but after some persuasion and long arguments the parents have calmed down. As a compensation they had the troll put down by the Ministry and expelled the student who was responsible for the trolls appearance in the first place. The body was sent to the parents so they could give her the proper burial, and so the life in Hogwarts carried on.

    But autumn is not the only thing October has brought. A scheduled trip to Hogsmeade Village is about to come this Saturday, and students are pumped for that. And seems like a new transfer student is popping out of nowhere, sorted in the privacy of Headmistress McGonagall's study to Slytherin. It is a bit odd to transfer in middle of a term, is it not? How will the new kid settle in when everyone seem to have already formed their groups? And since everyone already have their dorm rooms sorted out, where will he end up when most of the rooms are already full? Well, there is just one room in the boy's dorms that has only one student, but...?

    Current time in the RP
    October 1st
    Friday evening

    Weather outside
    Cloudy and grey with occasional light rain.
    Autumn has finally taken it's toll on Scotland, and the colors of fall are seen everywhere, not to mention how fallen leaves have coated almost everything. The air has cooled down noticeably, especially during mornings and evenings, so warm clothing is a must! Winter is basically at the doorstep.

    Events and related things
    - The following Saturday morning is for Hogsmeade trip; younger students need Professors for supervising their trip, but older students are allowed to go on their own if they have the permission slip filled and presented for the staff. However, students do not have to go if they do not wish to.
    - New transfer student from France is joining the Slytherins.
    - Professor Ashton is nominating the new Slytherin Quidditch Team Captain. (Finally, after postponing this long enough.)

    Note
    The Friday evening is basically just for casual roleplaying; so go crazy with your own plots! I will post the official day change in here when it is its time.

    Current hot gossip topics

    - Sabrina Gallagher and Daniel Park started dating after Daniel asked Sabrina out publicly during Saturday's dinner month ago. The boy was very daring and endearing, and they kissed in front of people many times. Sabrina's male fans are devastated, but most of the people are rooting the fresh couple on.

    - Jayden Everdragomir is a Half-Breed, a Dhampir to be precise. Apparently the delinquent came out about it himself during Quidditch tryouts while demonstrating his strength as a Beater, and then proceeded to threaten most of the students present. Needless to say that the Slytherin's reputation just got even worse than it already was.

    - Nicholas Lockett, the 7th year Slytherin and Captin of his Quidditch Team, was expelled from school since he carelessly let in three trolls with his friends into school. His friends got suspended, but as a leader of their little group Nicholas got the worst punishment. One of the trolls led into death of a 6th year Slytherin girl, Azel Raphael, but otherwise there was just minor other casualties. One of the trolls was slayed by 6th year Ravenclaw, Lucas Grey. The troll that killed Azel Raphael was put down by the Ministry since the Raphael family demanded it, and they also demanded Nicholas Lockett to be punished harshly because of the loss of their daughter. The third troll was the reason why the staff had been too late to save the girl, and it was moved out of the Hogwarts grounds to some desolated area.

    - Melinda Geralds was the girl who made the troll trip down and fall over Azel Raphael. There has been rumors that someone saw her hex the troll before it fell down with horrifying results. But it is only a rumor... right?

    October continues with its cold days, and the temperature had dropped dramatically during the night and brought something surprisingly early this year; first snow. The land is covered in white fluffy snow that keeps falling in big snowflakes, and seems like it will not stop snowing until the end of the day. It is still too early for the snow to stick because it is not cold enough, so it will melt within a day or two... But it is still pretty. The youngest of students -- and why not the oldest of them too -- have instantly headed out to have snowball fights and build snowmen. Looks like it is going to be one fun Saturday.

    And like always, the snow fits in perfectly with Hogsmeade's Christmas card image, since today is the day when the students are allowed to visit the village. Students are excited and eager to get off the school grounds for a change, and the shopkeepers are excited of having them over so they could get customers. The village gets always so much more livelier during weekends like these.

    The Hogwarts gates are open from morning to evening which gives the fourth years and older the permission to come and go as they please, while the third years are moving with under the surveillance of the teachers. That is, if the students have the permission form signed by their guardian. The gates are being watched by the Hogwarts staff, and enchanted against intruders.

    Nothing could go wrong, could it?

    But wait, seems like the trainee at Zonko's Joke Shop has somehow managed to mix the First Love Beguiling Bubbles and Babbling Beverage potions into wrong bottles! Now, now... This could create some awkward situations for some who only wanted to play an innocent prank.

    Current Time in the RP
    October 2nd
    Saturday

    Weather Outside
    The sky is full of grey clouds and its snowing quite heavily which is quite early, when usually it snows in late November and December, sometimes even later. The snow is not going to stick for long, and is already melting a bit so the ground is occasionally wet, slippery and muddy. The air is frosty, but not too cold to be called utterly freezing. Just cold enough to make you shiver if you have not dressed warm enough.

    Events and related things
    - The morning is for Hogsmeade trip after breakfast; younger students (3rd years, younger are not allowed to go) need Professors for supervising their trip, but older students (4th years and older) are allowed to go on their own if they have the permission form filled by their guardians and presented for the staff. However, students do not have to go if they do not wish to. The Hogwarts gates will be closed at 6 PM after the staff have confirmed that everybody have truly come back to school grounds safely.

    - There is a confusion between two potions in Zonko's Joke Shop, when a young trainee wizard boy somehow managed to mix Babbling Beverages and First Love Beguiling Bubbles potions together, and now these two are in reversed bottles! Anyone could accidentally buy these, and only skilled potioneers can tell the difference if given the chance, especially since the bottles are made out of colored glass. It might take some time for the shopkeeper to notice the mix up.

    Note
    Anyone is allowed to "accidentally" buy the love potions at Zonko's Joke Shop. I would appreciate it if no one would be a total killjoy and go out there and point out the mixed bottles to the shopkeepers right at the very beginning. Honestly I would like it if no one would go there to point them out at all and just enjoy the madness the love potions will bring. Otherwise just go on with your plots and plans.

    Current hot gossip topics
    - Sabrina Gallagher and Daniel Park started dating after Daniel asked Sabrina out publicly during Saturday's dinner month ago. The boy was very daring and endearing, and they kissed in front of people many times. Sabrina's male fans were devastated, but most of the people rooted the fresh couple on... But that did not last very long, as the smart Ravenclaw boy transferred to Brazil for further studying, not explaining this to Sabrina for whatever reason and just disappeared. This caused some rumors among the students how Daniel had been only interested in the half-Veela because of her beauty, and it had all just been a game to the boy. And when he had gotten the girl to fall for him, he had abandoned her immediately; a game won.

    - Jayden Everdragomir is a Half-Breed, a Dhampir to be precise. Apparently the delinquent came out about it himself during Quidditch tryouts while demonstrating his strength as a Beater, and then proceeded to threaten most of the students present. Needless to say that the Slytherin's reputation just got even worse than it already was.

    - Melinda Geralds was the girl who made the troll trip down and fall over Azel Raphael. There has been rumors that someone saw her hex the troll before it fell down with horrifying results. But it is only a rumor... right?

    - Some fifth year girls saw Kiyoko Oshiro and Jayden Everdragomir kiss in the Slytherin common room last night. Does this mean the delinquent is tamed by this new Japanese transfer? Are they dating?

    - Zoey Black did not come back to Gryffindor Tower last night. Her bed was completely untouched still by the morning when everybody woke up, and whispers of the Black heir have started to spread. Romantic rendezvous with someone? Where did she sleep last night? On some boys bed? The rumor has taken a snowball effect, and some students are even guessing she was sleeping with a Professor. But then someone also said that they saw Zoey in the company of some unknown boy yesterday evening. Someone no one recognizes, but the rumor says he was wearing a Slytherin uniform. There is all kinds of wild stories and speculations what went on last night, but no one dares to approach Zoey Black herself.

    - There is also a similar rumor going on about Sidney O'Connell, who did not come to sleep in Ravenclaw Tower last night either. However no one is suspecting that he was sleeping with a teacher, and honestly everyone suspects that the boy got stuck reading books somewhere or doing some experiments all night -- it is nothing new really when it is Sidney.

    - Some weird Slytherin kid was seen with Zoey Black the night prior. However no one seems to have an exact memory as of what he looked like, as the Slytherin's appearance seems to change from short to tall, from slim to bulky, from dark haired to blond and red haired again, and at first everyone was quite sure it was a he, but now people are also conspiring that it might have been a she after all.

    - The senior year Slytherin transfer student has started to gain infamous reputation already. Glesni Helling is rumored to be practicing the Dark Arts, and that a seed of corruption is resting in her soul. Since the girl seems to be a loner and overall looks a bit deviant in a way that some people are unable to understand, the students are judging her quite harshly and rumors about the dark haired girl who is wearing odd piercings are going wild. Some people whisper that her secret source of power resides in human souls. And that she eats raw House-elf meat when no one is looking. And that she has killed someone in the past and thus can see the Thestrals, and that she sometimes rides the skies on their bony backs on full moon nights. There is also a rumor that if you approach her, she will hex you. If you talk to her, she will hex you. If you look at her in the eyes longer than three seconds, she will hex you wandlessly and wordlessly. And Merlin help the poor bastard who will get on her bad side.

    The morning dawns upon the land, and comes with heavy grey clouds. The sky seems to rip open around the same time the students start waking up, and pours down relentlessly. This is nothing new, really, as the weather has been rainy lately, which is nothing new at all if you are a born citizen in the U.K. The air is crispy and smells of decaying leaves and wet earth. The days have grown short and the nearing winter can be felt in the air. The Forbidden Forest seems even darker and offputting than before. Maybe it just seems scarier because Halloween is so near...?

    So another typical school day is beginning in Hogwarts, and the students are eager to learn as ever! Some just little less than the others. Just two weeks ago or so there has been a note pinned on the noticeboard of each respective dorms of an extra class that everyone are supposed to attend at three thirty -- which extends everyone's school day a bit, making the less excited study bugs groan when they are reminded of it. Not to mention how many extracurricular activities start right after it, making their schedules quite packed and the day hectic. And there has been rumors about the extra class being something about the nasty Boggarts of no less!

    On a side note, a Quidditch game is getting closer. Gryffindor versus Slytherin game will be held in couple of weeks, and this has started to stir the student population. The house rivalry between Gryffindor and Slytherin has started to get strained and more stressed, the students more eager to pester the other than before; especially the Quidditch hooligans. Someone seems to be sent into Hospital Wing every other day because of some nasty hex. Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs are either trying to be neutral or picking sides as to which team to cheer on the upcoming match, and bets are already being made.

    But something is coming, and the most sensitive and perceiving ones take a note of it. The articles in today's Daily Prophet seem to be more colorful than normal, and something unpleasant can be seen on the first page. Some may take the note of, some may not. Surely it will ruffle some jimmies. But it is nothing to worry about, right?

    Thursday


    Weather Outside
    The snow that had come down few weeks ago did not show itself ever since. Instead rain has started to come pouring down, the sky is grey and the air cool enough to make you breath small puffs of steam. So better dress warmly! The earth is wet, slippery and muddy and the dead grass isn't making it any firmer to walk on. There is a sound of thunder in the distance, but it is not loud nor is there any lightning as of yet, and looks like it is going to pass Hogwarts by.


    Events and Related Things

    • Every student character should start from their respective dorms and do their usual morning routines and then head to breakfast. It would be recommended for everyone to take at least some sort of note about the Daily Prophet articles. After that everyone should follow their given schedules for the characters. Try not to alter the time or keep it vague so it does not mess things up, please. The Game Master will take care of the occasional narrations to keep the time moving smoothly!
    • After the class schedule every student is obligated to attend to Professor MacNeill's extra class -- no matter the house or the year the character is in. You really do not want to miss it if you want to have fun with Boggarts! Otherwise if the character does not show up, it is considered as skipping class.
    • After everything above mentioned the characters that belong to any clubs or their respective Quidditch team are obliged to attend to their club and team practices. After these we are closing the chapter.
    Note
    For the seventh chapter there is going to be a timeskip only for one night's worth, as we're going to celebrate Halloween in Hogwarts style. Also, there seems to be several birthdays on that day, so maybe there should be a word of a secret party put forward?


    Do not post anymore on a timeline that is on chapter 5! That is forbidden. Please focus on the chapter 6 now and start fresh after the time skip!

    Current Hot Topic Gossips

    • After a bit over month has passed ever since Jayden Everdragomir was revealed to be a Half-Breed of infamous kind, most of the student population have come into conclusion that he feeds on his victims blood every time he brawls. And that house-elves provide him with muggle blood which he bathes in.
    • The whispers of Sabrina Gallagher's love life have died down a bit, but there is still some flying about. These nasty words seem to heat up every time she starts talking to another person of the opposite sex, especially when it is Lachalan Macryrie whom seems to have grown closer with the half-Veela. Jealousy is an ugly thing -- especially among females. The tall Gryffindor boy does not seem to know the vastness of his fangirl base, or the existence of one at all. Which would not be very surprising, since Lachalan is very oblivious to his surroundings most of the time.
    • Melinda Geralds was the girl who made the troll trip down and fall over Azel Raphael. There has been rumors that someone saw her hex the troll before it fell down with horrifying results. But it is only a rumor... right? The girl has always been bit of a lone wolf because of her blunt personality which tends to be a bit offputting, but nowadays she seems to be almost avoiding other people, withdrawing to her shell and building a wall around her and between other people that almost separates her from the world. This behavior is like fuel to the fire, and because kids are generally really cruel towards each other, have started murmuring ominous words like "murderer" among other things. However...
    • ...Valiant knight Sethen Lockett seems to have been hanging around the aforementioned girl a lot lately. It is known that they are childhood friends, so maybe the Pure-blood boy is hanging with her simply because of a family obligation or out of pity? And during the last trip to Hogsmeade he was seen carrying the short girl on his back! Why exactly would the playboy be so persistent about Melinda when he seems to generally avoid flirting with his childhood friends, no one is sure. However, this is not the only thing that makes people talk about Sethen Locket Sir Lancelot's great deeds that have boosted several girls opinion of him and grown his fanbase. The Lockett boy was seen standing up for Sabrina Gallagher in Three Broomsticks during the last Hogsmeade trip when a boy who could not take a hint was harassing her. The situation escalated into a fight but Sethen did not land a single blow, which followed the other boy being thrown out of the inn. And they claim chivalry is dead!
    • What exactly is going on in the head of the Japanese transfer student, is making people suspect she is either insane, has a death wish or both. Kiyoko Oshiro is indeed dating the infamous Bulgarian Dragon, so the earlier rumors were true! How the hell this kind of development ever happened -- or was even possible with someone like Jayden Everdragomir -- is a complete mystery. But then again, the girl has been seen mumbling to her wrist several times which is a bit odd, so maybe the two mental cases are a match made in heaven?
    • Zoey Black was seen with an unknown boy in Hogsmeade. Alone. Together. Almost like a date. This did not raise any alerts first, until few weeks passed and the identity of the new face came to known; Peter Berlioz, another fresh transfer student, but this one from France. Now the ethnicity is not that big of a deal, but that the kid is in Slytherin! Has the Black's girl, who is known very well of her prejudice towards the Slytherins, fallen for one of the snakes?
    • Adison Ryder surely caused a ruckus back in Hogsmeade. He is not now only known for his ice breaking skills, but also for his window breaking abilities after getting himself thrown through a window in Three Broomsticks because of a spell gone awry. This also caused Professor MacNeill to have a seizure right after. But the most imporant question still is... Who the hell threw that snowball?!
    • Speaking of Professor MacNeill, several students witnessed the man cuddling the Quidditch Coach Madam Watkins on the Three Broomsticks floor. Are these two a thing, now, hmm? This has started several curious students bothering the two with the most inappropriate questions about their possible love life, making the Gryffindor Head's lessons usually start with "Professor, when is the wedding?" or the like, following with amused snickers. Kids.
    • The senior year Slytherin transfer student has started to gain infamous reputation already. Glesni Helling is rumored to be practicing the Dark Arts, and that a seed of corruption is resting in her soul. Since the girl seems to be a loner and overall looks a bit deviant in a way that some people are unable to understand, the students are judging her quite harshly and rumors about the dark haired girl who is wearing odd piercings are going wild. Some people whisper that her secret source of power resides in human souls. And that she eats raw House-elf meat when no one is looking.

There is also a rumor that if you approach her, she will hex you. If you talk to her, she will hex you. If you look at her in the eyes longer than three seconds, she will hex you wandlessly and wordlessly. And Merlin help the poor bastard who will get on her bad side.

    Halloween is here again this year, and seems like nature is providing a creepy atmosphere for everyone's convenience. A lot of things have been going down, and some people are still a bit shaken from yesterday. What happened has also created pretty tight, heavy atmosphere inside the student body. Especially between the Gryffindor Pure-bloods and the Slytherin Half-breeds. Overall, all the Half-breeds and Pure-bloods are reacting to it interhouse wise, one way or another. Some jimmies have definitely been rustled the wrong way, and it does not look good.

    However, to lighten the mood and lift everyone's spirits, one certain half-veela has decided to take it up to herself to act as the saving grace. A mysterious note has been spread all over school noticeboards, and by the first glance, it seems to spell just complete gibberish. However, once you anagram it, either in your head (which would be one hell of a feat) or with magic, the letters will re-arrange themselves into a message that actually makes sense; "Halloween party! Seventh floor left corridor, all houses invited. Wear a costume!" After that all the ink will form a big number to inform the time of the party, which is 6.00 PM. Then the message will turn back into its normal crazy gibberish.

    But it is warded against the teachers and other school staff. If someone else besides a student tries to anagram it magically, the letters will change and re-arrange themselves into a politely rude message that will ask the professor to mind their own beeswax and stop sticking their abnormally large noses into other people's business. Also the students that have managed to anagram the message will be cursed automatically if they tattle to the teachers, and start vomiting slugs before they even manage to finish the sentence. Of course, no-one else but the genius herself who came up with this knows that will happen if you become a snitch. And she will quickly know who not to trust in the future by simply following the trails of slugs to the traitors. Evil genius right there.

    The word is that someone is gonna smuggle some Firewhisky in the party and there is gonna be some spiked punch, and wizard snacks and candy. Everyone who has been able to solve the message and are going to attend have been a bit jittery since the lunch time when the anagram invitation had appeared in their noticeboards. Once the last bell rang, everyone has rushed into their dorms to prepare their costumes. Nobody is quite sure where the secret location of the party exactly is, so everyone is just going to sneak into the seventh floor left corridor one by one and try to avoid unwanted attention, and hopefully find out one way or another. Maybe there is more riddles that will lead you there, or maybe there is a guide. Just be there 6.00 PM and find out.

    Weather Outside
    Dark, heavy clouds that are promising heavy autumn rain any second now. The rumbling of thunder has been heard for couple of hours now in the distance, and seems like it has moved now overhead of the castle. Lightning can be seen flashing within the clouds every now and again, but it is as if it is too shy to show itself outside the cloudy veil for now. Wind has been picking up, throwing around dead leaves in the grounds and tearing away leaves off the trees that have been about to drop soon, and it is making the cool air feel colder than it actually is. A storm is brooding, and it seems like it is only preparing for an evening show.


    Events and Related Things

    • A secret Halloween party is being held in the seventh floor left corridor somewhere at 6.00 PM. Nobody knows the exact location yet. The dress code is; wear a costume. And the message is clear; be there or be square!

    • After a bit over month has passed ever since Jayden Everdragomir was revealed to be a Half-Breed of infamous kind, most of the student population have come into conclusion that he feeds on his victims blood every time he brawls. And that house-elves provide him with muggle blood which he bathes in. And now the rumors also say that the boy is currently locked up in Hospital Wing after being tried to burn alive yesterday by one of thee Pure-blood students. Somehow this has led other students to understand that Mr. Everdragomir is not after all unbeatable, but just as easily taken down as any other student. And somehow, that has kind of turned as his favor, as now he seems more approachable. However, the names he is now dubbed with, such as Jaycon, The Boy on Fire, MockingJAY and many others that his fellow peers now jokingly to refer to him as, seems to have made the half-breed groan in his hospital bed and miss how people were still avoiding him like the plague before.
    • The whispers of Sabrina Gallagher's love life have died down a bit, but there is still some flying about. These nasty words seem to heat up every time she starts talking to another person of the opposite sex. She also seems to have pretty much turned away from the School Cream, and chosen to hang out with the outcasts instead. She was also seen slapping someone by the end of the Defense Against the Dark Arts class -- again. The only difference being that this time it was not Mr. Everdragomir, but one of Ms. Geralds lackeys. Getting revenge for one of her friends?
    • Melinda Geralds was the girl who made the troll trip down and fall over Azel Raphael. There has been rumors that someone saw her hex the troll before it fell down with horrifying results. But it is only a rumor... right? The girl has always been bit of a lone wolf because of her blunt personality which tends to be a bit offputting, but nowadays she seems to be almost avoiding other people, withdrawing to her shell and building a wall around her and between other people that almost separates her from the world. This behavior is like fuel to the fire, and because kids are generally really cruel towards each other, have started murmuring ominous words like "murderer" among other things. And now things have gotten worse. During yesterday's DADA accident, Melinda was seen casting a Fire Spell towards Jayden Everdragomir. People have labeled Miss Geralds now as a Half-breed hater, going as far as claiming she was trying to burn the half-vampire on purpose and framing it as an accident. She was also seen standing in the sidelines while her teammates were insulting the other Slytherin half-breed, Sabrina Gallagher, and it turned into a short lived physical fight. Seems like Melinda is not gonna get rid of her new reputation as a Pure-blood that is trying to purge the school from the lesser beings.
    • Valiant knight Sethen Lockett seems to have been hanging around the aforementioned girl a lot lately. It is known that they are childhood friends, so maybe the Pure-blood boy is hanging with her simply because of a family obligation or out of pity? And during the last trip to Hogsmeade he was seen carrying the short girl on his back! Why exactly would the playboy be so persistent about Melinda when he seems to generally avoid flirting with his childhood friends, no one is sure. However, this is not the only thing that makes people talk about Sethen Locket Sir Lancelot's great deeds that have boosted several girls opinion of him and grown his fanbase. The Lockett boy was seen standing up for Sabrina Gallagher in Three Broomsticks during the last Hogsmeade trip when a boy who could not take a hint was harassing her. The situation escalated into a fight but Sethen did not land a single blow, which followed the other boy being thrown out of the inn. And they claim chivalry is dead!
    • What exactly is going on in the head of the Japanese transfer student, is making people suspect she is either insane, has a death wish or both. Kiyoko Oshiro is indeed dating the infamous Bulgarian Dragon, so the earlier rumors were true! How the hell this kind of development ever happened -- or was even possible with someone like Jayden Everdragomir -- is a complete mystery. But then again, the girl has been seen mumbling to her wrist several times which is a bit odd, so maybe the two mental cases are a match made in heaven? Also, seems the Weasel has started a new rumor about the boy extorting Ms. Oshiro into the relationship? For more details, read the latest Weasel!
    • Professor MacNeill has been witnessed by several students cuddling the Quidditch Coach Madam Watkins on the Three Broomsticks floor during the previous Hogsmeade Trip. Are these two a thing, now, hmm? This has started several curious students bothering the two with the most inappropriate questions about their possible love life, making the Gryffindor Head's lessons usually start with "Professor, when is the wedding?" or the like, following with amused snickers. Kids.
    • The latest Slytherin transfer student has started to gain infamous reputation already. Glesni Helling is rumored to be practicing the Dark Arts, and that a seed of corruption is resting in her soul. Since the girl seems to be a loner and overall looks a bit deviant in a way that some people are unable to understand, the students are judging her quite harshly and rumors about the dark haired girl who is wearing odd piercings are going wild. Some people whisper that her secret source of power resides in human souls. And that she eats raw House-elf meat when no one is looking. And that she has killed someone in the past and thus can see the Thestrals, and that she sometimes rides the skies on their bony backs on full moon nights. There is also a rumor that if you approach her, she will hex you. If you talk to her, she will hex you. If you look at her in the eyes longer than three seconds, she will hex you wandlessly and wordlessly. And Merlin help the poor bastard who will get on her bad side! During yesterday's DADA class Ms. Helling was seen casting Fiendfyre in the classroom. Despite seeing her control it pretty impressively and taking down a lot of artificial inferi, it was bit of an overkill to go that far as to invoke serious Dark Magic. She was seen yesterday taken to the Headmistress' office by Professor McGonagall herself, and nobody saw her after that. The word is Ms. Helling was suspended from school for two weeks, her wand was confiscated by the Headmistress and is under her custody somewhere, and Ms. Helling is also placed under house arrest by the Ministry of Magic. Obviously, the trick she pulled the day before was not treated lightly and she is set as an example for the rest of the school, so nobody will get any funny ideas...

    The next morning dawns upon the ancient castle with soft light. The last night's storm is long gone, the skies are clear and the sun is lazily climbing up the Scotland's sky. The air smells like autumn and fast approaching winter. The ground is coated with hoarfrost, only to be melted away by the warmth of the sun rays in the matter of minutes.

    Once the blazing ball of light has climbed up high enough, the students start to stir in their chambers as it bothers their sleep; the first ones would be Gryffindors and Ravenclaws in their towers closest to the sky, next the Hufflepuffs in their basement where the light peeks in from the windows above ground, and last but not least, the Slytherins once sun rays are strong enough to penetrate through the murky lake water and into their windows.

    However, for a Saturday, it is unusually quiet morning. At this point many would be already clambering out of their beds to spend their free time, as it is weekend, and it is time for friends and games. At this point, the kids start making their ways to the Great Hall in loud groups usually, making plans on their way to breakfast. However, today it seems like it is only the younger students that are eager and energetic like normal. But the vast amount of older students? Not so much.

    Most of the older students dorm rooms are quiet like the mausoleums. The feeling around these doors is heavy and dark and promises hell to anyone who dares to disturb these graves. And occasionally, one can hear a muffled, pained groan when one of them stirs in their beds and immediately regret the decision to move at all.

    The morning after the party comes with heavy blows of pain and regrets for the ones who could not quite hold their liqueur. Head aches are rather common, and the poorest ones can be heard suddenly jumping out of their beds, followed by running steps towards bathrooms, which then follows with the sounds of puking and whimpering. But eventually even these poor souls start dragging themselves through baths to breakfast to survive. That is, those who feel like they can hold it down.

    By now the rumors are already on the move; who hooked up with who last night, who embarrassed themselves, who got into a fight. All the last night's drama is immediately on everyone's lips, as the teenagers immediately feast more with the gossip than they do with their cereal and porridge. Whatever happened is surely to be spreading fast among the students, and even though nobody admits it, they are eagerly waiting for the next Weasel issue next week which is surely going to hold more details that others might have missed.

    Weather Outside
    The weather is absolutely brilliant. The sun is shining with full power outside in the cloudless sky, sharing its last rays of warmth for the land and promising possibly the last somewhat tolerably warm day of the year. The temperature is cool as expected, but the sun rays provide enough warmth that one can easily spend the noon outside without jacket for awhile without problems. There is barely any wind. The weather is complete opposite to last night, and would be lovely to enjoy outside for anyone who feels up to it. However, the strong shine of the sun may be actually bad for the light sensitive eyes of the poor souls who are victims to their last night's mistakes.

    Note
    This is a short filler chapter for morning after effects. Everyone should enjoy and roam freely according to what their character's condition might be. I would say that at most we're gonna spend time on this 1-2 months. This is just so we can finish the preparations for the upcoming Quidditch game chapter.

    Do not post anymore on a timeline that is on chapter 7! That is forbidden. Please focus on the chapter 8 now and start fresh after the time skip!

    The newspapers and notice boards are still the same as the previous chapter. They will updated for the next one.

    Current Hot Topic Gossips
    • After a bit over month has passed ever since Jayden Everdragomir was revealed to be a Half-Breed of infamous kind, most of the student population have come into conclusion that he feeds on his victims blood every time he brawls. And that house-elves provide him with muggle blood which he bathes in. The rumor says that even though the boy was locked up in the Hospital Wing, he broke out last night to attend Gallagher's party. And being one of the guest of honors, no less. Apparently he was not so hurt after all for being almost burnt alive by one of the Pure-blood students in Thursday's DADA class. Maybe it was just worse than it looked... Or maybe Madam Pomfrey is more capable than anyone expected? Or maybe, just maybe, the Everdragomir kid heals faster than should be humanely possible. However, the incident during the DADA class has somehow led other students to understand that Mr. Everdragomir is not after all unbeatable, but just as easily taken down as any other student. And somehow, that has kind of turned as his favor, as now he seems more approachable. However, the names he is now dubbed with, such as Jaycon, The Boy on Fire, MockingJAY and many others that his fellow peers now jokingly to refer to him as, made the half-breed groan in his hospital bed yesterday and miss how people were still avoiding him like the plague before. However after yesterday's incident at the party between him and Garaile Scriven, the students are yet again a bit more wary, even though most of them believe the brawl was just an act. But how well it was played out, really gives them the creep... And maybe, just maybe, it was not an act after all...?

    November is around and that means that the Quidditch season starts again. With the match in sight between the two sworn rivals Slytherin and Gryffindor it is only natural that the students are all feeling hyped up. To release some of that energy, but also to boost up the morale, a fields day has been organised. A day where all of the houses will compete with each other in a variety of wizardry sports and earn these house points back they have lost. Now is the chance to make a come back if your house is falling behind in the Hogwarts house competition!

    There have been several sports organised for the day. On the Quidditch pitch there is a smaller version of the famous Quidditch game. This isn’t a regular-only game as today non-players are allowed to participate as well. For these who don’t have a broomstick Hogwarts has their own stock of broomsticks provided with the special thanks of Spintwitches Sporting Needs in Hogsmeade. Bludgers aren’t in use today as they are considered to be too dangerous for the inexperienced, neither shall be the snitch be in play. Instead there will only be quafflers out in the field that the students will have to pass to each other and score.

    The annual pet race can be found on the borders of the dark forest near Hagrid’s hut. The professor of the Care of Magical Creatures class has set up an elaborate assault run for the students and their beloved pets. Students who don’t have any pets, but still wish to participate, may borrow one of Hagrid’s many animals that he owns. The professor guarantees that they are all very gentle in nature as long as they are treated well.

    A broomstick tag-team and a solo race is situated around the whole grounds of Hogwarts. Students may choose to participate in a team-race where they fly short distances and tag the next member, or they may choose to do the whole track on their own in a solo race. Whatever suits their tastes and whatever they believe that they excel in. It is recommended that the more experienced flyers only partake in these games, for there aren’t enough teachers to keep an eye over the whole track.

    Entirely new this year is the introduction of the muggle games. Where traditionally only wizard games were played this is an attempt to introduce new sports to the wizards and witches on Hogwarts, with thanks to the Golden Trio. Popular sports like football (soccer), rugby, tennis, basketball, volleyball and the likes have also been set up inside and around Hogwarts. This is for the students to gain some more awareness of what muggles do for recreation, other than eating boogers, and for the muggle students to feel a little less homesick.

    Not only can the students play sports in order to win house points and favour. There is also a scavenger hunt! The teachers have hidden several replicas throughout the whole school and on the school grounds. The students have no idea what these items are, but are given a list with rather vague instructions. For extra clues and hints one must go to the teachers who are guarding their posts on the field faithfully. This means that in exchange for an hint the students will have to win first, what a great pleasure! The house that gathers the most items will win this hunt. Has it also been mentioned that this scavenging hunt is what brings in the most points?

    However, there is still an investigation to complete! The prefects received a letter from the headmistress a day after Sabrina Gallagher’s secret Halloween Party. It seems that there is a serial hexer loose in Hogwarts and the prefects aren’t getting any closer to the culprit. At least, that is what the headmistress, and the teachers, think. The truth is that some of the prefects know very well who started this, but can’t say it in fear of falling victim to the hexer themselves. After all, they did have a very festive night, right? What would become of them if the truth came out? Oh, the drama!

    Let’s start Hogwarts’ fields day! After a short speech from the headmistress, where she introduces the events of today, she wishes everyone good luck and the students go their separate ways. The professors are expected to watch over all of the games set up around the school, preferably two on each game to prevent bias from happening. They are the referees of the games as well as that they are supervisors, making sure that nothing goes wrong on the Hogwarts fields day. They have also received a special notion to watch out for this serial hexer that is still around.

    Weather Outside
    Miraculously the weather of the fields day is amiable. Some drizzle is expected, but nothing that would spoil the day. The sun will come out occasionally, warming up the fields, but in overall the breeze is soft and it is a fine day to be athletic.

    Notes
    As you may have noticed we have been in a bit of a slump the past few months. Blame it all on us, the team behind Hogwarts; New Generation, however, we are putting an end to this all! Wicked has decided to take a few steps back as the GM and decided to take a hiatus for an undisclosed amount of time. As such @Misaou and I (@WishfulNemo) will take over as temporary Game Masters of this role play.

    To make a successful restart with Hogwarts; New Generation, it has been decided that we will do one more extra chapter before the Quidditch chapter. This so that both the temporary Game Masters can ease into their new jobs, but also to see if the members are willing to continue after this period of abandonment.

    Please do not post about the previous chapter (chapter 8) anymore! All interactions are assumed to have ended then. Start and pick it up from this current chapter.

    Winners of competitions, races and the scavenger hunt will be determined by the dice. For a fair game both the temporary GM’s will roll the die to reveal the results of each race the characters have. The pairings may be decided by the players themselves. The highest number roll will obviously win, if the group is bigger than two then the ranking of the winners are also determined by the eyes thrown for them. The winning house of the scavenger hunt will be determined the same way as the winners of the competitions. For that reason we won’t release a list of riddles and items for the scavenger hunt either. You make them up yourselves, but don’t make them too obvious or too easy. Don’t make your character get off it painfully easily. Dices are rolled in the Quidditch dice thread, where you can also read about the Quidditch system we wrote about.

    Participation within the fields day is mandatory for all students. There is no exception or escape from it. The same goes for the teachers who have a job to do that day. They won’t be able to play along in the games as they are expected to supervise and act as a referee.

    IMPORTANT: From the release of this chapter until two weeks afterwards, ending on; February 21, 2016 [FEBRUARY TWENTY-ONE, TWOTHOUSANDANDSIXTEEN]. All of the members are expected to have posted at least once. If the deadline passed by and you have failed to post, as well as failed to notify us of why you haven’t, we will see forced to see you out of this role play. Keep the deadline in mind and don’t make us chase after you unnecessarily.

This behavior is like fuel to the fire, and because kids are generally really cruel towards each other, they have started murmuring ominous words like "murderer" among other things. And now things have gotten worse. During Thursday's DADA accident, Melinda was seen casting a Fire Spell towards Jayden Everdragomir.

Why exactly would the playboy be so persistent about Melinda when he seems to generally avoid flirting with his childhood friends? No one is sure. However, this is not the only thing that makes people talk about Sethen Locket. Sir Lancelot's great deeds, that have boosted several girls opinion of him and grown his fanbase, was seen standing up for Sabrina Gallagher in Three Broomsticks during the last Hogsmeade trip when a boy who could not take a hint was harassing her.

The word is Ms. Helling was suspended from school for two weeks, her wand was confiscated by the Headmistress and is under her custody somewhere. Ms. Helling is also placed under house arrest by the Ministry of Magic. Obviously, the trick she pulled the day before was not treated lightly and she is set as an example for the rest of the school, so nobody will get any funny ideas...
    • Half-giant Etienne Stark has done it again! Rumour has it that he is the bodyguard of the notorious Garaile Scriven, making sure that the little Weasel won’t get hurt. He certainly has been doing an awful job seeing how the Slytherin broke his wrist in a brawl recently. However, perhaps the Gryffindor was too afraid of his fellow half-breed, Jayden Everdragomir? He is after all not a guy one would attack without a thought. Perhaps that Stark has a little more brain than Everdragomir does. That doesn’t take away his latest performance in the recent Quidditch training. Several eyewitnesses claim that they have seen Etienne hitting a bludger with such ferocity that it never returned! Others claim that the bludger simply flew out of the field by the hit the half-giant gave it. There are several versions going around, even going as far as saying that the fiend hit off Hagrid’s roof, literally. Whatever the story was, it stands proof for the immense power his huge body hides. Slytherin isn’t the only team with a trump card it seems!
    • Another half-breed drama! Apparently Oswin Ravenwood has been responsible for the disappearance of several male students. It seems that she sucks out the life energy out of the poor souls she captures. Luckily the Newspaper club quickly uncovered the truth after a small investigation. Now everyone avoids her like the plague. Who would have expected that from that doll?
    • Garaile Scriven hasn’t been back for long, but he is already stirring up quite the chaos. The annoying journalist immediately got to work and started to uncover a few secrets. Such as miss Ravenwood’s half-breed ancestry and spreading the rumours that Jayden Everdragomir is threathening his Japanese girlfriend into dating him. However, that hasn’t been the most surprising about it all. It seems that he has also caught himself a love interest, or maybe not? In any case, the story has gone viral in which Anice Runeswell is seen and said to have kissed the blond full on his mouth. What? Yes, the Anice Runeswell, the uptight and pureblooded prefect of Slytherin kissed Garaile Scriven and there is even a wonderful photo evidence of that! Would this finally be his road to redemption? Many think that it is another attempt of his to attract attention, however, soon news spread as well that Garaile was locked up in the hospital wing. Was the fight he had with Jayden Everdragomir not so staged after all?
    • Uptight, big breasted, Slytherin prefect, Anice Runeswell is making quite the fame for herself. First she was signaled in a skimpy, promiscuous dress attending an underground party that the teachers had no knowledge of. Then she was seen gobbling down all of the gummy bears that she could find and flirting with a few seemingly handsome faces, only to end up crying in the corner. The students just assume that she was rejected, for, no matter how nice she looks, everyone knows of her reputation. Or so they thought. The most surprising story of the night has the clearest evidence and many were shocked when they read the Weasel after their hangover went away. Apparently she kissed the Weasel! The students wonder if this is what the pureblood has always been like, and if she was just pretending to be a model student. However, none of them dare to ask it, for the story sounds too ridiculous to be true.

    • Because the Weasel is temporarily out of the field Prince Charming has taken over. They have written a juicy story involving the notorious journalist. The school paper has also released something new it seems. A new column dedicated to the students crafty with words and the quill! Check it all out!

    Great Hall

    Theodore Williams wasn't 'exactly' the most attractive man in the Great Hall, currently. His lifeless, dull eyes repelled most students from sitting at his table while his expressions practically screamed, "Do not bother me or I'll skin you alive". Why was Theodore feeling this way, you might ask? Well, the blonde stayed up all night finishing his project that was due in three days; he procrastinated too long for an assignment that was assigned three weeks ago. Thankfully, breakfast that was spawned earlier on the table comforted him, mending both of his mentality and physical hunger. As he helped himself with scrambled eggs and bacon (with other delicacy), strangers began to fill the empty spots near him, though they didn't sit close to the blonde. While he began to munch on a bread he took from a basket, he wasn't thinking of anything particular until a conversation from the first year students caught his attention. Despite that the two girls wasn't able to come, they conversed lightly about Hogsmeade and how it would be like.

    "I heard that the older kids get to go! I'm so jealous!!"
    "Ahh, it must be nice...I want to hurry and grow up~"

    Nice? Theodore could say otherwise. It is
    freezing out there, seeing that most of the windows here in the hall was frosted. And heck, the Ravenclaw wouldn't be surprised if a violent blizzard occur during the trip, as it would be much to everyone's disappointment. Theodore for one, didn't really care if he went or not but his parents insisted. He bit on his lips and thought for a moment. If he has enough money on him, maybe he'll do Christmas shopping for his parents. It was still early on October and Christmas wasn't even close but it's better to start now than to do it later, right? Picking at the side dish with his fork, he propped his arm on the wooden table and rested his chin on his palm.

    "Maybe I'll make them a massage coupon instead..." Theodore mumbled. His parents seemed the type to appreciate home-made gifts better than things that was bought from a store.​

    [​IMG]

    Reed walked slowly as his left arm cradled a tome he was on planning returning with another book open in his other hand reading as he walked. His infatuation with knowledge always made his days fly by. He was also thinking about the next project he was going to undertake. He herd many people conversing as he walked by them. Coming to the door he put his back to it opening it he kept his main focus on the book in his hand. a girl was walking out and he would have hit her but he quickly put the book to his chest almost protectively. The girl looked at her, a fleeting look nothing more and he smiled sheepishly as he continued into the library. he sighed in relief as he did not like to talk to other often, the friends he had were few and far between. if anything he was like the ravenclaw ghost of the daughter of Rowena Ravenclaw whom he had gotten to know. she was depressing most of the time but he liked her she did not talk alot but her presence was very calming.

    Reed placed the book in his right hand into the return bin then it flew away going back to its intended slot. Looking back at the book he was engrossed in he walked to a table and sat down studying it, he spent 3 hours reading and finally stopped looking up his neck ached. Rubbing it he reached into his pocket and pulled out a piece of paper and bookmarked it. Closing it he stood up and stretched his sore muscles. walking out of the library he nodded to the librarian Madam Pince. Leaving the library he began to make his way to the garden area.

    [Entrance Hall to Hufflepuff Basement]
    "You are absolutely right Sullivan! That means I need to go back to the dorm and fetch my new pink mittens!" There was something about the cheery way Alyss spoke that made Sullivan smile fondly. The girl led him through the halls by hand and he could tell she was in quite a hurry because she tripped over her own feet several times. If Sullivan hadn't been holding Alyss' hand, she probably would have fallen on to the floor a couple of times. 'She's a little clumsy,' he mused.

    "Hurry Sullivan!" the girl shouted over her shoulder. Sullivan was able to keep pace with Alyss easily enough, but he held back their speed intentionally to keep the hasty girl from going too fast, both for her safety and the safety of others. They soon stopped at some barrels just outside the kitchen corridor. Sullivan heard Alyss moan softly as she took in the pleasant aroma that pervaded the area. He watched as she took her wand and tapped a barrel a few times. The lid opened and Alyss said to him, "I will be right back, don't move a muscle!"

    "I'll be waiting right here for you," he assured her. Sullivan thought it was kind of funny to see Alyss crawl through the barrel like that. Who would have guessed that Hufflepuffs lived in a basement that was accessible by a hole in the wall? After waiting a couple of minutes, Alyss crawled back out and looked up at him. Smiling, she exclaimed, "Ready!"

    Just as she said that, two ferrets, one with pure white fur and one with some black mixed in, escaped Alyss' satchel and scrambled up Sullivan's charcoal-grey trousers. Caught by surprise, the red haired boy stumbled back a little and yelped. Alyss protested, "Mussy! Peasey! Don't you dare!"

    Sullivan relaxed and wore a curious expression as the pure white ferret climbed up to his shoulder and sniffed his cheek. The two ferrets squeaked at each other until the ferret with the darker fur climbed down and made its way back to Alyss while the pure white one sprawled around Sullivan's neck and nibbled gently on his ear. Sullivan found it a little ticklish, but pleasant too. Sullivan chuckled at the situation. He looked down at Alyss to find her on her knees pouting a little. She said, "I forgot to get a cookie..."

    Sullivan knelt down on one knee, looked her in the eyes, and gave her a reassuring smile. "Don't worry," he said, "I'll buy you plenty of sweets when we get to Hogsmeade." He took a hold of her hand and helped her to her feet. With his free hand, Sullivan pointed at the ferret acting as a sort of additional scarf.

    "This one seems to have taken a liking to me. Is it a him or a her? What's its name?" The ferret was soft and pleasantly warm. Sullivan could get used to this sort of thing.

    [Hogsmeade Village]

    It was just about time for Glesni to get her mind out of books that she took for serious from the first day she began attending her classes. Maybe way too serious, considering a lot of other students apparently had everything else but studies on their mind. Though she indubitably enjoyed her new studies, she still needed a time out for a fresh start on Monday, and Hogsmeade trip sounded like a pretty good idea. As soon as she figured that orienting around the village wasn't so hard, she quickly headed to finish everything she wanted to do. Snowy weather made it all perfect for her and she really enjoyed something outside of studies for a change. The fact that she didn't have to walk around with other students, as long as she knew her way back, made it all even better. "Alright, where to first?" She walked between the shops, narrowing her eyes to read their names through the falling snow. "Hm, what do you say we go check out some books?" Pause. "No? Too bad. I have to go there alone sometimes then."
    She took the map of Hogsmeade out of the pocket on her coat and brought it closer to her face, almost entirely under the wide hood.
    "Yes, well. I think I know what you would like." Point to the Honeydukes shop on the map. "But then we go where I want to next." Glesni folded her map and put her back into the pocket noticing a kid standing next to her, confusion and unpleasant surprise mixed up all over his face, while he was glaring at Glesni. It didn't take long before she realised why the boy reacted that way. She smiled at him lightly. Until he noticed the green crest on her coat, boy didn't move. However, right after seeing it, he bowed his head down and walked away quickly. "My my, Brach", she said after the boy disappeared out of sight. " I am sure Slytherins will appreciate belief that, over all, they are insane and... are talking to themselves in public." Shrug and chuckle lightly. "Let us get those candies first, shall we?"

    (***)

    Honeydukes on that day was full of the youngest residents an students of Hogwarts. "Hang in there." Taking off her hood, Glesni moved forward between the shelves lightly due to her slim built and agility, fast before she would made any kind of contact with present people. Being Slytherin had it's advantages. Not all were willing enough to argue with her before they made a room for her to pass. "Found anything you like?" she spoke quietly just so she could avoid more of those surprised glares. A few minutes and annoyed mumbles of people later, Glesni managed to get to the old candy-lady and place her order. "Alright then dear, that is Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, a Chocolate Skeleton, Crystallised Pineapple, and Glacial Snow Flakes?" asked the lady and Glesni nodded lightly. "That is correct."
    Soon everything was packed, and Glesni was soon back on the snowy street. "Hold on, let me see will this work for you." She opened the bag and grabbed a box of Crystallised Pineapple pieces that seemed quite filled considering it's size. Then, she opened the box and took out a piece, returning the box into the bag. Regardless of snow and cold, she unbuttoned her coat revealing a black bat that glared at her surprised. "Try this, Brach." Once the piece was under the bat's nose, it sniffed it shortly and grabbed it quickly chewing to take some more. "Hey you, take it easy there." Glesni said as she was buttoning her coat up. "Lucky you I don't really like pineapple." Smile lightly taking out map once more.

    (***)

    Unlike Honeydukes, Dominic Maestro's Music Shop was empty and more of Glesni's liking. Just as she walked in and took her hood off, tall and somewhat skinny, blonde lady was there to greet her with a melodic voice. "Welcome, welcome! Welcome to our music shop, valuable heritage of our beloved wizard Dominic Maestro!" She grinned at Glesni happily. "How may I help you young lady?" Glesni nodded, returning the greet with a faint smile. "Do you have any cellos?" Lady's smile faded as she looked carefully at Glesni once more noticing her piercing and frown lightly. "Cellos?" Glesni sighed, aware of what the shopkeeper was thinking. "This is really getting old." Glare at the shopkeeper with a bit intimidating gaze. "Do you treat all your customers like this?" Skinny lady raised her hands in defence and stutter. "N-no, I d-didn't mean to insult you! I...I just thought that..." Sigh defeated, realising she has no valid explanation for her actions. She bowed lightly. "I apologise. Please, follow me." She moved towards the shop window where a large beautiful cello was displayed for passing people to see. "This here. This one is our best one." Glesni landed her hand gently, following curves of the instrument. "Indeed. I can tell this one is special." She hesitated a bit before turning to the shopkeeper. "Could I ask you a favour?" Realising she owes her a lot after her rude question, shopkeeper quickly nodded. "Why yes, of course! Anything!"
    "Can I try it out?", asked Glesni glaring calmly and coldly. "T-try it out?", repeated the shopkeeper and thought deeply. "Well... it IS against our policy but... I think that is a good way for me to apologise to you. Just... just be careful with it, I beg you." Glesni smiled reassuringly and took off her coat, sitting on a chair that was part of the entire cello setting behind the shop window. Brach hung comfortably from her sweater, lazily covering his face with wings. "Don't worry. You have my word." Outside, a bunch of people gathered to see why on earth is there a Slytherin girl in a shop window. However, Glesni didn't mind. She started to play dark but soothing melody, smiling gently while the music spread through the shop. "Well I'll be damned.", was all that shopkeeper said, listening carefully.

    [Out of Hogwarts, on the road to Hogsmeade.]

    After the little encounter with the two Slytherin figures Melinda had turned around, walking away from the scene without much of a notice to them. Realization of breakfast only hit her later when cold wind blew past her, flushing against her cheeks as she realized that she had walked into the opposite direction she had intended to. Instead of making way towards the Great Hal were breakfast was to be found the girl was standing at the entrance of Hogwarts, meeting face to face with the cold outside that would lead her to Hogsmeade today. She could turn around and return, however that thought was soon dismissed as Melinda didn’t want to admit to her own mistake of walking off into the wrong direction. Even if it meant she would have to starve through the morning or live on the vast amount of sweets that they offered inside of the village, she was not to turn around and face the couple again. It was better for them anyway, as Melinda didn’t seem to be wanting to get along with the male she spoke to earlier. Neither did it seem that he was taking any more of a liking towards her, it was just not inside of their nature as both were characters who needed to have the last word in a conversation. The thought that they and specially that bully was to make a comment on her for rounding the wrong way was enough for her to determine herself not to. No matter how loudly her stomach was protesting.

    So she went. Stepping into the cold as her feet sunk into the layer of snow that had fallen. Her lungs filled themselves with the cold air uncharacteristic for this month of the year, her nose snuggling deeper into her scarf which she was glad to have with her. Hands tucked deep inside of her coat and Melinda was guarded for the weather. Mostly. Since the cold would still blow through her, passing the exposed skin of her face and passing her legs, even despite the trousers she was wearing for today. However her greatest concern was not the cold outside, but the juniors playing around, throwing snowballs at each other and running off to slide over the hardened ground. Melinda supposed that no matter their blood the young all seemed to enjoy the snow, running about having the greatest fun, occasionally hitting people not meant to hit.

    Of course with the girl walking into their playground it was bound to happen for her to get hit by a snowball. Despite her small length, or perhaps because of her lack height it just happened that a low flying snowball went into her hair. For the second time today as again the cold rolled down into her scarf, causing the hair on the back of her neck to stand straight up. Goosebumps and the feeling that followed after it wasn’t any more pleasant. Laughs erupted as none of the students bothered to say sorry, no one bothered to do so anyway, only thinking of their targets and their fun. That a few schoolmates had to suffer was none of their concerns. The glares that was shot at them from Melinda and other bystanders were then also heavenly ignored, none of the youth minding it as they just kept on playing, having in no way realized their mistakes. It was thus a reason why many didn’t bother to react at all, walking on as to hurry themselves out of the battlefield, but some others lingered around, calling names or joining into the craze. Melinda was one of the first group, her short legs trying to carry her around and out of this place as soon as she could, reaching for the cross point that would lead to the infamous village. There was no need to idle around at one place for long anyway. At least not with the promise of warmth found inside of the inns, bars and shops found inside of Hogsmeade.

    || On the road to Hogsmeade // Hogsmeade : Near the Three Broomsticks Inn ||

    The two girls began their journey to Hogsmeade in the freezing weather, Madi didn't have gloves so she tucked her hands underneath her armpits to keep them warm. Seriously, should've dressed better than this. But then again she wasn't planning on going to Hogsmeade today. Amazing how your day can change in a instant. Madi was zoned out half thinking of the soft crunching noise her feet made in the snow and half thinking about what she and Rose would do once they got to Hogsmeade. She almost hadn't caught the question her friend asked her. On the other hand she kinda wished she hadn't.

    "So, uh... Seth, huh?" she muttered casually. "How did that happen?" Madi focused her eyes forward as she bit her trembling lips. She didn't immediately answer the question, turned out that was a good thing because Rose had more to say. "Er, you don't have to tell me about it if you don't want to,"

    "Don't sweat it Rose. Since when have you second guessed yourself on something you've asked me?" Madi grinned at her best friend. Madi meant that Rose usually spoke her mind around Madi. Not really worrying about how she worded things. No matter what Rose said Madi would continue to listen to the end. She wouldn't give up and walk away. "It's like I said earlier. Nicholas really screwed up with the whole troll incident. So, I guess not wanting to lose connection with each other, our families decided to arrange a marriage with Seth and I. That being said we never had a chance to voice our opinion on the matter. Neither of us wants to get married to the other. I mean can you imagine getting married to a brother? Can you say ew?" Madi shook her head and tucked a piece of her dark brown hair behind her ear. "Yet it happens all the time. " Madi muttered

    While talking Madi had lost track of time and before she knew it she and Rose had made it to Hogwarts. A smile creeped upon Madi's lips. She was actually really excited to be here. She was really disappointed she wouldn't be going today, but then in comes Rosie like the hero out of a novel, and saving the day. She'd really missed coming to this place. Memories started flooding back to her now that she was here again. She knew being here with someone else would be better than being alone.

    After being in the library for so long he needed to look to his plants. He walked down the moving stairs, across the courtyard, down three hallways till he emerged into the cold bite of the outside. he was clothed in his normal school uniform as he felt the cool crisp air fill his lungs he took a moment the observe the beauty of the landscape before opening the greenhouse door and closing it. his face began to warm just as quickly as it has froze the smell of flowers, herbs and many different fauna bombarded his senses. He had been there many times before but he never grew use to the smell of the greenhouse and he hoped he would never loose that.

    Making his way to the back room the door separated his section from the rest of the greenhouse of the school there he paid close attention to his plants. He added only a small amount of magic when it came to his plants. The herbs he looked after were more fruitful and the flowers he cared for always bloomed and stayed bloomed for a longer then normal time. he took off his overcoat and put it on the chair at the small desk where he would often study in solitude, he then rolled up his sleeves reveling well defined arms for a bookworm. People wondered where he would disappear off to it was usually here. He began to water the plants and soon began to begin new pots for more plants the heat in the greenhouse made it a prime place to get rid of the cold effecting ones body.

    [Hogsmeade; the Three Broomsticks Inn - Hogsmeade; Outside of the Inn]

    Silence fell again as the drinks were set in front of them. The butter beer in front of them still fresh with the foam peeking just over the nick of the glass, but none of them minded as they silently drank their beverage. August didn’t mind the silence between them, however he could see a certain restlessness with his partner as the half-veela set down his cup, having on drunk three quarters of it. Perhaps it had been the idle chat going around him that he felt restless. Or the fact that the waitress didn’t flirt with the handsome male as usually would happen. The blood of the veela attracting much attention. However, by the time that August could say anything at all to his acquaintance the fair haired male had already stood up, apologizing for ‘failing’ his role as company. That he wasn’t ‘entertaining’ had been of no matter to August, but he kept silent as the Slytherin male strolled off, perhaps more upset about the departure of his best friend than he initially let on. It was quite disappointing to see that the infamous player of the Slytherin dorms let itself play around by the emotions. Though that at one side made it so curious as to observe people, as they never reacted the same twice. Or at least, the dynamic changes they made inside of their character and emotions was interesting to say the least.

    Now that he was alone again the butter beer certainly tasted blander than before. The glass that the veela had left unfinished still set in front of him, untouched as August didn’t bother to call the waitress to pick it up. She wouldn’t react on him anyway unless he decided to order a new pair of drinks, but seeing as how he was left alone the chances were low that he was to ask for a second serve. Pathetic he found it, how he would let himself the butter beer taste now that he was suddenly left alone. Perhaps that had been the reason why he had walked up to the veela anyway, taking the initiative to invite him for a drink. Something highly unlikely for the tanned male, but it had happened and August dismissed it as something psychological that he couldn’t quite get rid of the feeling of having company. Perhaps this was why August still felt sceptical about a ‘true’ hermit. One who was in no need of any company at all? It just seemed that highly improbable that someone was able to be on their own for a long period of time without going insane. Mumbling in themselves and holding conversations with imaginaries. August had yet to hear or to encounter a hermit who has succeeded without any interaction and not going insane, but he also supposed that were that to happen they would have failed their life as someone isolated from society.

    With that thought August had finished his drink. Having warmed up a little as to face the cold again, back to Hogwarts since there was honestly nothing to do besides from drinking. Setting down his empty glass the male then eyed the waitress, his green eyes flashing for a while to see where in her job she was standing, whether she was to clean up and notice the unfinished glass of Damien on their table. It must be happening more often, people who didn’t finish their butter beer. However the reactions of each were different. Some would look down on it scornfully, finding it a waste of money, others simply didn’t care and would throw it out as a few immoral ones would probably pour the left over into another glass, serving it to another guest. Quite a disgusting idea the latter, but he had seen it happen in the time he had been a guest here. Muggles did it often enough as well, as to save money, but then there was no actual difference between the wizarding world and the muggle world. Only their way of living and the addition of magic. However, when it came down to business everyone tried to garner the most gold into hand.

    Eyeing the other students and a few classmates one last time August then finally left. Preparing for his way back as he tucked his hands back into his pocket again. The cold was relentless, giving him no time to prepare once he was outside as a mean gush of wind passed him, blowing some snow into his eyes as he blinked away the cold flakes. He regretted going out again as the warmth of butter beer was slowly escaping him again, replacing it with the cold that today brought. There was no help in it however as he couldn’t sit there entirely, drinking on his own. Not only would it look odd, but he wouldn’t please himself much further with it. Going back to Hogwarts sounded much more worthwhile as he could read a good book to himself or perhaps even advance on his studies. So he proceeded, deciding that it was better to move on fast instead of dawdling around and complain about the weather. He had learnt so a long time ago when he moved from warm and sunny Turkey to the cold and rainy UK. There was no worth in talking about the weather like most people did, but there was something soothing when people agreed with you whole-heartedly that the weather plainly sucked. A feeling that August felt not in need off as he just wished to escape it as soon as he could.

    So as he took his steps back to Hogsmeade, following the path leading towards Hogwarts it was to no surprise that he was going into the crowd. While others were still excited about having to get to Hogsmeade he was done with it for the year, avoiding the little rascals that were racing down the streets. Of course it was no exception here that people would play with the snow. It happened at Hogwarts, but could easily be taken over at Hogsmeade once the professor had finally taken the juniors out. It was also for that reason that the way back was also much more dangerous. Now August not only had to avoid being bumped into, as he was walking into the stream, he had to mind the snowballs of his juniors as well along with their ice packed paths that they used to glide over with their feet. Only the most daring dared themselves to shove themselves on their stomach over the cold and frozen grounds, but most preferred standing, occasionally tripping as they lost their balance.

    || On the road to Hogsmeade // Hogsmeade : Near the Three Broomsticks Inn ||

    While walking through the crowded streets it seemed that Madi was getting distracted by everything that moved. Not that, that was terrible but she was supposed to paying attention to her best friend. Instead Madi was acting like a kid on Christmas morning. She was way too hyper to calm down properly. Just as she was thinking that a snowball whizzed past her face snapping her out of daydream. Luckily because there was another snowball was coming straight at her.

    It was as if time slowed as Madi's eyes narrowed. She ducked quickly to avoid the snowball and then time returned back to normal. Madi quickly began gathering snow and made two quick snowballs. She popped back up on her feet and launched the two snowballs at the kids who were throwing them. Madi's arm muscles flexed as she released with the strength required for the speed she wanted. Both snowballs hit their desired targets in the face. She caught them by surprise. One of them was so shocked he fell on his butt in the snow.

    Madi's laugh rang through the air like bells. She might've been cold to the bone but it was amazing how something can be forgotten when having fun. The subject of Seth and the fact that she was freaking cold was out of her mind. Madi was seriously acting like a kid now. But there was nothing wrong with that. She'd been too serious for the longest time. Now it was time to have fun with her best friend. She was about to ask Rosie a question but she was distracted by a guy with tan skin and bright green eyes.

    She knew him vaguely. His name was...err..it was..April? No that wasn't right it was a month though, she was on the right track . August! His name was August. Yeah and he was a Ravenclaw. Other than that Madi knew nothing about him. One thing was for sure, he had the best eyes she'd ever seen. Madi was seriously a sucker for eyes. Even when the mouth didn't tell what was going wrong with a person the eyes always did. Madi had to stop starring at him though. They were getting closer, the distance between them closing, if she continued to stare she would look like a freak.

    Once again Madison found herself totally distracted and not paying attention at all to her surroundings. That was when she took a wrong step and slipped on a patch of ice. Once again, time slowed down as the ground slowly rushed up to her face. All she could do was mentally curse herself for being distracted by some guy's eyes. She was about to make the biggest fool out of herself. She could taste the humiliation that was about to fall on her like rain in April. The one thought that kept popping up in her mind was,"and this is why we can't have nice things"

    Isn't that the truth?

    [ Hogwarts Grounds; En Route to Hogsmeade ]

    Sethen Lockett sat crouched behind the makeshift snow fort, steely silver-grey eyes gleaming with excitement and he continued to compress snowballs in his bare and very red hands. One it was satisfactory in a sphere=like shape he let it down into his pile, a mountain that seemed to be as tall as his actual wall. The boy drew his wand with a wicked glint in his eyes and with a few utters the stack began to levitate. He went about hurling them over onto the head of the enemy, laughing like a madman as they squealed at his enchanted snowball siege. His adrenaline was pumping and his body felt alive with magic as it flowed. His dark locks clung to his features, damp from both the shower he'd taken that morning (something he now regretted horribly due to the excess water that seemed to be freezing to his face). His ears had taken on an unpleasant burning red and were now shifting to a kind of blue but he was ignoring it. He was happy playing the ignorant schoolboy without a care in the world, that is until a snowball rushed past his head, he followed it's path right up until the point that it hit one dwarf-like girl on the side of her head, splattering across her brown hair, snow and water droplets now decorating her locks sliding down into her coat and scarf.

    As always he paused in alarm, he hated the concept of hurting bystanders, especially girls, and then he realized her knew the girl. His stomach dropped. In a heartbeat he dove to the side just as she turned to glare at the feuding crew, after lying in the snow awhile he risked sitting up and peering over the wall at her. He really didn't want to gain her disapproval by playing with a bunch of kids and such, she was so mature... of course it was a good thing, her quiet nature somehow gave her an unearthly superior air about her, this was something Seth found admirable and rather.... attrac--admirable. Let's leave it at that. She was so far in the friend zone it wasn't funny, off limits. Yes? Even after hitting her the snow soldiers all continued to laugh, Seth however had become sober, and he stood to follow her, getting hit with a flurry of snowballs in response. He raised his hands above his head with a slight smile
    "Alright alright I surrender!"
    He called. A few kids paused.
    "Seth, where you off to?"
    "Yeah Lockett, running away?! What the hell kind of Gryffindor are you?"

    One boy said with challenge in his voice and a smirk on his features as he readied a snowball. He glanced over at him, flashing his a toothy grin.
    "Chivalry isn't dead yet boys."
    He said with a chuckle
    "We'll finish this battle later. I'll hand your sorry asses to you. Until we meet again"
    At that he bowed mockingly and then turned on his heel and ran after Melinda's retreating small figure. As he rushed toward her, scooping up the heap of cloth that was made of of his cloak and house scarf, as well as mittens that had been shed at the start of the battle only to be left sitting on the sidelines of the war zone. When he met up he slowed down from a run, to a trot, to a walk so that he was in step with her. Though he had to take what felt like half a step to keep from getting ahead of her.
    "Sorry 'bout them, winter high of getting snow and all"
    He said with an apologetic grin
    "So how've you been Mel?"
    He asked as he slipped his gloves on. Followed by his scarf and then his cloak, he did up the silver fastenings as he walked.

    [| Slytherin Dungeon - Jayden and Peter's Room |]
    “I've just started figuring out what’s going on here. I know you’re angry at him and you have a right to be. But until we get you out of here, can you calm down?” Peter now stood in front of her, breaking her glare on Jayden who sat there like a useless heap of angst. But what did that make her? "Berlioz this doesn't concern you--" Before Zoey could finish her statement, she got a face-full of Peter's shoulder. "Please?" Peter's arms wrapped around her, gently but firmly as if to comfort and restrain her from doing anything stupid. The gesture caused her to want to shove him back on his arse, but as much as she wanted to fight against his embrace she wanted to retreat into it. Slowly and extremely hesitant, Zoey began to fist her hands in his shirt. Pulling him closer, and savoring how it felt to be hugged like that.

    Sooner then she would have liked, or to admit, she shoved him back gently. Not too hard to make him fall, but hard enough to let him know the moment was over. Turning away from Kiyoko who was babying the leech she flipped her hair over her shoulder and fixed her uniform, regaining both her composure and her dignity.

    "So snake 1, 2 and 3. How exactly do you three plan on getting me out of here." Turning back, the eltist glint returning to her eyes, she face the three of them with an eyebrow raised. "I can't imagine ever forgiving any of you for getting me in trouble and forcing me to miss my trip to Hogsmede." Her tone was filled with nothing but the characteristic Zoey primness, almost as if she was back to normal. But her mind still swirled with just as much as angst and bitterness that Jayden held in his eyes. However, she portrayed any of it.

    Looking at Peter, she swallowed back a welling of emotion as she saw his lip was swelling big time. Frowning she whistled long and low, "Berlioz you really should go to the infirmary." A part of her, that overwhelmed the pity, admired her handiwork even though she hadn't hit her mark. Blind rage was definitely not her friend. "I'd hate to see that get infected or go uncured. That is my hand work after all." She added as if it mattered that she was the one to punch him. Not able to look at him anymore, her eyes flickered back to Kiyoko instead. She couldn't believe that Kiyoko had anything but disgust torward the leech in the room. It was really too revolting to think about Jayden sinking his teeth in to her best friend's... Balling her fists, she had to bite down on her tongue in order to not shove over Peter causing him more bodily harm and shaking sense in to Kiyoko. What was she thinking? Zoey watched as Kiyoko tenderly checked out Jayden's head. The Black couldn't help but feel the chill Kiyoko was no doubt sending her way.

    [Hogwart's Entrance]

    Anice sucked the remaining flavors from her last lollipop. She'd bought a new bag before she boarded the train in London, but seemed to have finished them throughout the ride. She stood, motionless, outside Hogwart's main entrance with her luggage. She dreaded the place, but home wasn't much better. At least at Hogwarts she could pursue the cure to her curse; though she was beginning to lose faith that that would ever happen. She had 1 year left at the school and had found absolutely no evidence of any sort. She'd checked every book in the library, asked every professor (of course keeping her situation a secret), tried countless potions of her own making, but ended up with nothing except a huge green wart on the side of her mouth for a week.
    Anice sighed heavily, forcing herself through the entrance. She'd taken a 2 month leave to visit her father, who was supposedly dying of an infectious disease, but it turned out he'd accidentally swallowed a frog and the problem could be easily fixed. Once the frog was removed, Anice was sent straight back to Hogwarts; a month early.
    Walking through the familiar halls, Anice made her way to the Slytherin dorm, heading straight for the solitude of her private room that her parents made sure she was given. As Anice made her regular course to the dorm, an owl flew up beside her and perched on her arm with a letter. It was clear to Anice it was one of the school's owls, but what she didn't understand is what they'd want to tell her. "Welcome back, Anice! Hogwarts couldn't survive without you!" she giggled at the thought.
    'Anice Runeswell, welcome back to Hogwarts. We are very pleased to know your father is doing well and send him our best regards.'

    Anice snickered, hardly believing they cared at all. The letter continued:

    'It seems there's been a mix up in room assignments. Seeing your room was empty for 2 months, we rented it out to some first years who's room was flooded in your absence. However, seeing you've returned early, we face a problem. We humbly ask that you would room with fellow Slytherin, Sabrina Gallagher, for the remaining month and then return to you're own room, if you so please.

    Our best regards,
    Hogwarts'

    Anice was stunned, "W-what?? " her eyes scanned the paper, making sure she hadn't misread it. "Sabrina Gallagher?! Do they honestly expect me to room with that bimbo?!" The owl blinked at her and then proceeded to pluck it's feathers. Sabrina Gallagher was the most popular girl in Hogwarts. Like Anice's mother, she got everything she wanted because of her looks; or that's how Anice saw her. She'd heard countless rumors surrounding the Slytherin beauty, but never found out if any were true. What she did know was that she was not looking forward to rooming with the "blonde bobblehead" in the least. She growled, "If my parents knew about this..." She wouldn't tell them though; the last thing she wanted was that sort of attention drawn to her. "I can't believe this is happening," she mumbled.

    Anice Finally reached the Slytherin dorm, She left her luggage outside Sabrina's room. It was obvious Sabrina wasn't there, and Anice felt uncomfortable barging in the room while the owner wasn't present. She sat outside the door and ran her hand over a book she'd checked out from the library before she left. She'd read the story over 20 times; It was about a prideful sheep who ran away from his herd because he believed he could brave the world on his own. However, by a series of unfortunate events, he was deceived and his white wool was tainted black by his mistakes. In the end, the herd found him and he found out they'd been looking for him since he left. They assured him that he was one of them no matter what his mistakes. It was a pretty low level book, but Anice found herself checking it out on a regular basis. As she thought on it, she realized the book was probably well overdue and remembered there was another book on curses she'd been meaning to check out. "Maybe I should go down and get that..." Anice pulled herself to her feet. Leaving her stuff by the door, she clutched the book and walked out the dorm.

    [Library]

    Anice felt foreign when she entered the library. She'd only been gone for a month, but it left her more detached than usual. She clutched tightly onto her book, trying to hide the cover; although she liked it, she'd think it embarrassing if anyone saw her reading it. She wasn't the type to read lower-level books and thought it might taint her "reputation" if anyone knew she found enjoyment in reading such frivolities. Anice looked around, making sure no one was watching as she made her way to the "Curses" section. She leisurely ran her finger across the spines of the books, looking for the one she'd seen before.​

    [|Outside the Hufflepuff Basement|]


    "Don't worry, I'll buy you plenty of sweets when we get to Hogsmeade."

    Alyss looked up at Jack and the hand he offered her. Grabbing his hand she hopped up to her feet and smiled bashfully, blushing a bit. He was a really nice guy, who had a really genuine smile. Alyss let mental block slip a bit, reaching out she got different feelings from him. Endearment, but above all just and genuine kindness. Smiling wider she let go of his hand finally, then eyeing the traitorous ferret that made herself quite comfortable around his shoulders. Peasy had no intentions of leaving the young man's shoulders, which caused Alyss to pout. "Peasy..." The ferret sneezed, then closed her eyes.

    "This one seems to have taken a liking to me. Is it a him or a her? What's its name?" Alyss looked back up to Jack, biting at her lip. What had gotten into the ferret, normally Peaseblossom was the last to be so friendly with someone other than Alyss. "Peaseblossom is a girl, she is the twin to Mustardseed here." At the mention of his name, the mulitcolored male ferret slunk out of her knapsack and scurriec up her arm. Sitting at attention on her shoulder he glared at his sister. "They are normally always together... Peasy really likes you." Alyss felt a bit hurt, she had always had Peaseblossom and Mustardseed and it was almost as if Peaseblossom had decided to adopt Jack. Frowning abit she looked over at Mustardseed who blinked back at her. He was sympathetic and promised he wouldn't betray her.

    Smiling again she looked up at Sullivan, "Sorry about her, she is really stubborn." Alyss didn't try to bait Peaseblossom from his shoulders, It would be fruitless. Picking up Mustardseed she rubbed his tummy which in response he made something similar to a purring. "My big brother brought these two to me on my sixth birthday. I've had them ever since." Alyss kissed Mustardseed's small head and then offered him the knapsack. One glance at his sister and he decide to sit on Alyss' shoulders too. Laughing softly she let him nestle in her bright yellow Hufflepuff scarf.

    [Ravenclaw Tower>>Great Hall]


    Amelia spent half and hour just laying in her bed before she forced herself to nudge the welcoming warmth of her cat and get out of bed, throwing on clothes that were a bit warmer than what she had worn to sleep. Upon leaving her room, she had realized one thing; most people had left already. She expected that, though. She had a tendency to sleep in during weekends and holidays, since the only reason she needed to needed to leave her bed was really just to get food. She expected that she could still go to the Great Hall for breakfast, although there may be less people than there would have been earlier in the day. Just as well.

    As Amelia left the Ravenclaw Tower, heading towards the Great Hall, she quickly thought over her plans for the day. Amelia had no intention of going to Hogsmeade that day---the thought of trudging down the path the Hogsmeade was about as appealing as eating an earwax flavoured jelly bean, which could well happen if she went to Hogsmeade and bought some of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans. Going on the usual trip to the village just didn't seem too fun that day.

    Once Amelia had gotten to the Great Hall, she quickly found an empty space and sat down, filling her plate with some food that just happened to be in front of her. Her plan was to just quickly eat something, then possibly take a walk around the school. Though she's really need to look as though she had something to do, to avoid looking like too much of a loner, because she definitely wasn't one. She was just too busy to talk to anyone.

    Though, Amelia really wasn't too busy to look around and see if there was anyone interesting in the Great Hall. Of course, she's probably already seen everyone before, or at least the type of person they were. Even in the school she had attended before the age of 11. There were always gossiping people, loud, obnoxious people, quiet people, people who looked like they would murder anyone who talked to them with their bare hands---Well, actually, those people may only attend Hogwarts. They may only be that one guy who sat at the same table as Amelia, in fact.

    Maybe if she stared at him long enough, his expression will change. Probably into a confused expression. It wasn't everyday a girl with red and brown hair stared at you while eating eggs.

    [Hogsmeade-the Three Broomsticks Inn]


    Adam wondered if his house would lose any points if he strangled his cousin. He could just imagine it: “Minus 5 points for Hufflepuff---Attempting to murder a student of another house is against the rules.” Though, of course, it wasn't really breaking any rules. It was just breaking moral code, and he'd probably get detention.

    But really, Adam had a great reason for momentarily wishing for his cousin's demise. His cousin was late. He(his cousin) was supposed to meet Adam there, to pick up some things from him before they went on their merry separate ways. But apparently(and Adam should have learned this from the few years he's known his cousin), Adam's mental clock was a bit faster than his cousin's.

    “Oh, Adam, I see that you're wearing the hat I got you! See, it's not that bad, is it?”

    Ryan Jae McCallion, a 5th year, an annoying brat(though brat didn't always seem like the appropriate term, seeing as brats were supposed to be children, and while Ryan certainly acted like a child, he was still 15, and taller than Adam. Which was quite annoying. At that moment, he was sitting his snow-covered self beside his older cousin. “Say, Adam, have you gotten my stuff yet?” he asked. Ryan already figured out that his cousin would never reply to a conversation starter unless 'hello' was in some part of it.

    Adam rolled his eyes. “No, 'course not. I just think it's fun to sit around doing nothing. You can see everything I have on the table, right?” Adam's voice dripped with scorn and annoyance---That was usually how his voice sounded around Ryan.

    Ryan laughed lightly, green eyes twinkling with amusement that Adam never understood. “Ah, yeah. What's with that, anyway? You probably could have gotten a butterbeer or something while you were waiting for me. Could have gotten two, one for me too.”

    He paused to scoop up the items on the table, putting them into the large pocket of his coat. “I always feel like you're a drug dealer when you run errands for me,” he said with a grin. Adam didn't get it. Ryan knew he didn't get it. Ryan just wasn't going to elaborate. “Well, anyway, you seem to hate my company an awful lot, but you should really go find some friends. You should go ahead and take a walk around Hogsmeade. If you need me, I'll be in here. Or Honeydukes.”

    Adam rolled his eyes at Ryan's suggestion. Though Adam probably would have just sat at Honeydukes and argued with his cousin, he decided to do what he said. Just that once, though. Waving good-bye to Ryan, Adam headed out the door.

    The streets seemed a lot more crowded than before. It probably had to do with the fact that people had brought their snowball fight to into Hogsmeade as well. Great. Adam really didn't appreciate being hit in the face with snow. He didn't really see why people found snowball fights enjoyable. The students could get the same result by just dumping buckets on snow on themselves.

    But, well, Adam wasn't going to dwell on it. He'll just have to try using people as shields until he got to a place where the chance of being hit was lower. Basically, until he could find a nice building to stay in until the end of the day. Should be easy, there were plenty of buildings in Hogsmeade.​

    Great Hall

    The Ravenclaw was fully aware that somebody was in front of him. Perhaps it was because he could hear the slight clatter of forks and plates, but mostly; it was because he could feel the heavy stares lingering at both of his meal and face afterwards. The blonde wasn't sure if he should ignore the individual or ask what the hell do they want but honestly, he should might as well get it over with. Or at least, see who it is. He gave a mere glance at the stranger, noticing that she was probably about his age. Her strange, well; unique hair definitely caught his eye's attention. You don't see a person like that everyday. Fixing his gaze onto the nameless Ravenclaw (he assumed, seeing that she was wearing a gold-striped blue tie), he studied the girl carefully, wearing a blank expression. Theodore chewed on his bread slowly, savoring the rich taste of wheat.

    "...Can I help you?" He finally asked with his mouth full, breaking the ice. Theodore then swallowed, rubbing his nose before stabbing another delicious victim with his fork. The Ravenclaw didn't really care what her intention was, though he was curious why was she staring at him without...well, saying anything; that is. The last thing he wanted was a creeper watching him eat--breakfast was one of his time he cherished for a nice break.​

    [Hogsmeade Village]

    Soon after it became too crowded for her taste, and Brach became too excited about all of the people that ruined his nap, Glesni decided it was time to go. After thanking surprised shopkeeper, she put back on her coat and got outside, heading towards the Hogwarts castle, enjoying the weather a bit more, regardless that snow wasn't falling that much at that point. And then she remembered, poking her forehead gently. "Well, just great. I forgot to send out that letter for Ravena and Ciara once again." Turn around looking at now way too crowded Hogsmeade and sigh. "You know what? I bet there is already too much younger students attacking the post office. I will do it next week." The bat only moved under her coat to make himself comfortable. "Yes.", she chuckled. "My thoughts exactly." The truth was, she didn't really feel like going back into the crowd. She was no way near phobic about it, but for sure it was annoying enough for her. However, irrational wish for them all to disappear at once was pretty bad. Even for her. Coming back next week seemed like a better idea. Walk towards the castle allowed her to get absent-minded for a moment and think about things, ignoring her surroundings along the way.
    It was two weeks now since Glesni joined Hogwarts and...so far so good. Insisting on keeping her cold attitude, enabled her to do things on her own, the way she wanted to, without a need to remind anyone, who would potentially ask stupid questions, that it was none of their business. Glesni was pretty much aware of the reputation she gained, and she had nothing against it, as long as everyone would just avoid her, and not give her a hard time because of that like others did, back in Durmstrang. Would she be able to get away with another incident like the last one? Probably not. Yes, she was just fine with people thinking she would hex them for life or them thinking she eats their kitchen house-elves. It was a thought she chuckled on along the way. Hex people? Yes, she could probably do that...and make them look like fools if she wanted to. Maybe. But eating meat was on the very top of her "Hell bloody no!" list of things. Luckily, all of that was still pretty amusing, and she did absolutely nothing about it. Non of those poor, ignorant creatures did anything for her to react. No harm done. Glesni snapped out of her thoughts once she got to Hogwarts gates.
    "That was fast." Smile faintly thinking about how fast she might have been walking, and head down towards the Slytherin Dungeon.

    [Slytherin Dungeon]

    Glesni nodded, pleased that at this time of the day, no one was around in the Common Room. That meant they're either bothering other students, or hanging out while showing off their "incredible" power. Whatever it was, Glesni was glad she didn't have to take all their nonsense around here. Even though Slytherins were the biggest snobs around, other houses were pretty much all love, caring and sharing (exaggerated in Glesni's opinion). So, between those two "over the top" things...snobs it is. She walked out of the Common Room and entered the Dormitory section, almost instantly hearing all the commotion that was coming somewhere from within the boys rooms. "I spoke too soon, haven't I?" She quickly turned the other way and head to her room in girl's dormitory. It was one of the last rooms, and pretty much never bothered. Once inside, she took of her coat and leave it hanging neatly on the hanger. "Very well, Bach. You deserved your rest." Glesni then got to her night table, taking the black cover off the bat's cage and put Bach gently inside adding a few more pieces of pineapple candy before she put the black cover back on. Once Bach was all settled, she stretched and grabbed her Alchemy book and a box of Snow Flake candies, exiting her room and heading back to the Common Room.
    There, glad that there was still no Slytherins to be seen, she picked a comfortable chair near the fireplace and opened her book with one hand, while taking a piece of candy with the other one. Making sure none of the noise she heard before is coming that far, she relaxed and soon her mind was fully focused on the next chapter she was reading. Alchemy was a subject that just started, and what the classes were about at this point, was nowhere near the chapter she was reading. However, she simply enjoyed it so much that it was no bother reading few chapters ahead of the schedule.

    [Great Hall]

    When the other student had finally noticed Amelia(or finally bothered to look up), he didn't quite seem to care. He simply ate a piece of bread while watching her. It made Amelia feel like he was mimicking her, but it probably wasn't the case. He probably just wanted to eat and wonder what her motives were at the same time.

    It was a few moments before the boy had spoken. He chose to speak when his mouth was full. Did all males do that? Or was it just him and the males in her family? Amelia was perfectly willing to bet on the first one. "… Can I help you?" he had asked. At least he wasn't spewing crumbs everywhere.

    Amelia actually thought about that question for a moment. Usually, it was something that she could respond to with a shrug before continuing to do whatever she was doing before, but usually didn't include her watching the person like a stalker. It would probably be best to just reply truthfully.

    Swallowing the bite of scrambled eggs she was eating when the other person decided to speak, she said, “Well, you looked like you'd murder someone if they spoke to you. I could have asked you why, but, like I said, you look like you'd murder anyone who talked to you. I'll assume that you aren't much of a morning person?”

    Amelia looked awful talkative compared to the male who had just spoken four questions. But no matter. She was giving an answer, answers were supposed to be longer than questions.​

    [On the road to Hogsmeade - Hogsmeade]

    If it hadn’t been for Melinda’s small posture and the fact that hexing fellow students followed into punishment, then she would have certainly gave them a taste of herself. She held too much pride to lower herself to such actions, risking herself and her dorms into the loss of a few points. As well as there was still that rumour going around and about. Of course she didn’t enjoy it to have a life on her name, but were there was a smoke there was fire and unfortunately it was her who had jinxed the stupid troll. The sound of the cracking bones and the sight of blood staining the ground, the ungraceful smack the troll had made on top of the Slytherin girl and then later on the nauseous stench of death. Melinda wasn’t unaffected by the situation and the gossips whenever she entered a room didn’t help her forget at all. These judging looks, not that she wasn’t any used to it by now, her arrogant attitude had given her quite the reputation, but to be viewed and compared to the likes of out casted criminals was going too far. Alas. Her luck had since long been running out and it seemed that there were only clouds storming over her, thick and grey just like the sky was today.

    It was to no surprise then that the girl was surprised when a voice popped up next to her, apologizing. As zoned out as she had been lately, lost in thoughts and the turmoil of angsty teenage emotions trampling and challenging her pride over and over again. Melinda had been a little less sharp, not so keen any more as to keep her eyes out on that what went against her ‘conservative’ way of thinking. Looking up a little disturbed the female met up with the same face as she had last seen last night.

    Sethen Lockett, who she always and still remembered to be the wimp she had comforted in their first year of school. How he had changed, if only a little. To the girl his playboy attitude was just a façade, everything to hide his insecurities, but not that she cared. As long as he wasn’t crying on his own again and didn’t bother himself with his brother too much. The bastard that was supposedly his relative and one of the causes why the trolls had been inside of Hogwarts at all. It was a great thing that the Slytherin had been expelled. How he had treated his sibling and the fact that there was a dead leading out of his actions. Melinda had come to despise the male even more now that she had been actually affected by the male. However she wouldn’t mention it to Sethen, not wanting to upset him with the mention of such a worthless family member.

    Melinda nodded slightly to herself when Sethen asked her how she was doing. Answering only a little later as if she was in search of an answer. “Fine. Thanks for yesterday, by the way.” She mumbled, more grateful for fixing her broken nose than she initially would let on or ever admit to him. Looking back down at the ground again Melinda took note how their steps were even. Realizing that the male must be slowing down for her, whether that was with intention or not it kind of pissed her off. However she didn’t want to snap at him right after thanking him as she just silently picked up her pace, trying to make bigger steps on their way to Hogsmeade. In no way was she going to admit to her length and never would she have the wimp ever look after her. Melinda just refused the thought of having to be looked after or be protected for if she could do so perfectly fine herself. Her pride wouldn’t let her do so, her arrogance having grown much too great to ever tolerate it from even her closest relations. “So why did you follow me?” she asked, hands tucked deeper into her pockets as she leant a little forward with her weight to speed up her pace.

    Obviously it wasn’t for the fun of her presence. Or so Melinda believed. Right at the moment she was a little flake of depression, trying to reach the ground, but getting blown away by the wind and thus never falling down. She hated what she had become, disliked the thought of having others see her in this state and with the recent activities that had followed up she wasn’t feeling any better by being in the presence of anyone at all. Not even her friends or these who supposed that they were friends. However as he had already accompanied as far as to reach the village of Hogsmeade itself she could hardly ditch him on his own any more. The hustling and busy streets that were crossed by students and regulars alike. The girl assumed that if they were here anyway she might as well invite him for something warm. Knowing that he had been rolling around in the snow earlier and must be freezing like she was. Or perhaps not as much as she did, but still appreciating some warmth. “So mind if we warm up first?” she questioned rhetorically. She would go for something warms anyway, never minding the answer that she was going to receive. However if he was to agree that would make it a lot easier. Considering how her stomach was by now demanding for some content. It wasn’t heard, but it was just the painful throb and the emptiness that bothered her, feeling like she was getting sick despite having nothing to vomit.

    [Hogsmeade; Outside of the Three broomsticks inn.]

    The crowd inside of Hogsmeade had grown denser than before as he exited the inn after a pint of butter beer. Just as he had expected it, now that breakfast was most likely nearing its end at Hogwarts the first group of juniors were finally out, following the professor into the village as their curious stares and surprised glances felt nostalgic. Once he had felt like that as well, when he finally could set foot inside of this place, but as the years passed and he became independent enough to go out on his own the fun had grown out of it. The young curious boy that he had once been was still there, but now a slightly more bored as he had seen the village already. It was bound to happen after six years of exploring the village. The little shops, what they sold and where the best bars and inns stood, who sold the best butter beer and who the cheapest. August had even been to the Shrieking Shack a multiple times, just because he was bored and there was always someone around who was too afraid to go alone. He could be helpful, if it was to kill his own boredom, but out of himself he wouldn’t make that initiative. After all there was no worth into entering that place now that he found out that it was a mere rumour of an abandoned house.

    Making his way through the people August made sure not to bump shoulders unnecessarily with others. Trying to keep his distance on physical contact for he really didn’t feel like having to push his way through. Of course as the young were running around it was bound to happen that he was to dodge out or to be walked into, however, as long as he could avoid it he tried to keep the count of bumping arms on a minimum.

    Snowballs flying around in a form of a prank, trying to hit one of the passer-by’s on the streets and traitorous grounds that had become slippery because of the snow pressed into each other by the feet that stepped over it, the wind not helping either as its dust smoothened the surface, making it even more slick to walk over. Of course it shouldn’t be forgotten that there were young souls who just loved to slide over these surfaces, often losing balance or falling down, but they had the greatest fun while doing so. Trying to bet who was the fastest and who could maintain their balance until the very last. Pushing, pulling and running around with each other. It was no surprise either that there were occasionally people falling, screams and shrieks of shock coming from all sides and a light bump following it. Sometimes the adults would try to scold the students, but it was fruitless as the fun and excitement was taking over their conscience, happily following on with their play.

    It was then that a laugh not too far away from him distracted. Catching his attention as it was unusually loud for a female, most of them trying to maintain their image of a ‘proper’ lady, but failing miserably. This one however wasn’t of the humble kind as she laughed to her heart content when she threw a snowball into the fact of a boy. The latter falling right into a pile of snow that had been scooped up onto a hill as to free the path. It was certainly amusing to watch, if August had any interest in snow and snowball fights at all, but the female had caught his attention just like he had hers. Somehow. As she was staring at him, what exact reason there was for her to stare at him was unclear. Hoping that she was soon to realize how she was staring at him August just eyed back. Not minding the fact that they were having eye contact, he wasn’t shy and didn’t feel awkward. However it wasn’t exactly his most precious past time. If she was to observe she should do that less obvious, but then not everyone was an observer.

    Initially August was to pass the girl by without any other thought. Never bothering to get to know this odd figure who seemed to be so captivated with him, however it seemed that fate today had other plans for him as the female slipped, falling down into his direction. Short dark hair fell into his sight, as the male was looking down at the top of her head. In a reflection he had caught the female, grabbing her by her shoulders as he leant back a little. Surprised how they had been staring at each other only one second ago and now she had literally fell into his arms. Pushing the female up he noted that she was Gryffindor of about his age. Her scarf representing the infamous colours of red and gold. Her name had escaped him, however he knew that they had met before in classes as classmates, confirming his earlier statement. “Are you all right?” the male asked, a tad indifferent as he straightened his posture up, trying to balance themselves on their own feet again. They had gathered up some attention, but he was ignoring them mostly, wanting to check if the girl was able to stand again and then leave. He supposed that there was something of a gentleman inside of him, though most of the time asleep and left unattended.

    Great Hall

    Both Ravenclaw students looked at each other in the eye while finishing their meals silently, giving off tense vibes from other people's perspective. Just when Theodore began to think the stranger wasn't going to talk any soon, she finally spoke, asking multiple questions at a time. His eyes narrowed, obviously displeased that the stranger was quite the chatterbox. “Well, you looked like you'd murder someone if they spoke to you. I could have asked you why, but, like I said, you look like you'd murder anyone who talked to you. I'll assume that you aren't much of a morning person?”

    Theodore raised a brow, picking at his scrambled eggs that didn't look too appetizing anymore. He reached for a ripe, juicy-looking apple, "Perhaps so," He murmured a reply, before clearing his throat to sound louder than before. Theodore took a large bite out of the fruit, the liquid trickling down on his chin. "If it looks like I might 'murder' someone if they speak to me, then why bother taking the risk?" He glanced at the mark he gave to the red apple, his lips curved as a grimace like usual.​
