The One Where It's Hogwarts



Welcome to Hogwarts . . .
deductives: (imperious thought)

NEWT AND GILLYWEED SHENANIGANS???

[Newton Geiszler, fifth year Slytherin, has been in the Hospital Wing more times than he can count because of his experiments. And now, bare-footed and shirtless, he's pretty sure he's going to end up there another time.

Oh, well. Science is worth it and all.

Tugging the gillyweed out of his pocket, he grins down at it. It'd taken blowing up his cauldron last Potions to steal it, and he'd actually gotten an awful grade, which is a first, but whatever, totally worth it!]

[For most fifth years, May was the time to obsessively study for OWLs as if your future actually depended on it. At least for Ravenclaws. Sherlock, however, was busy roaming the grounds at sunset, avoiding his duties as the worst prefect in remembered Hogwarts history. It was a title he'd only received because of his brother's status as a legendary Head Boy, who insured it'd be handed down to his little brother simply to force him into behaving. Naturally, this was a failure.

Instead, Sherlock gained a reputation as a House Cup killer while simultaneously being enemy number one on Filch's shitlist. It was a strange duality, though one he accepted along with the scorn of his peers. There was only two years left of this-- might as well make some of it enjoyable.

His walk along the shore of the lake was just another way to daydream about being back in the muggle convenience of London, surrounded by the more familiar beasts of crime and family strife, when he noticed he wasn't alone.

Sherlock knew Newt from his classes, and his own reputation as being a different kind of nutter to his own. Anyone who was thinking about jumping in the lake had to be. That wasn't to say Sherlock had never been tempted himself-- there were mysteries in that murky water, and he was always up for one of those. For now, however, he draws his wand.]


Accio gillyweed.

[personal profile] grrroupie 2013-10-07 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
Hey--!

[He glares over at Sherlock and fumbles for his wand. Can he take him? Maybe. Sherlock is intelligent, nearly as smart (nearly!) as Newt himself, but he's an ass, and Newt doesn't have time for anyone who isn't a fawning fan.

So, basically, no one.]


Expelliarmus!
deductives: (futility sometimes)

[personal profile] deductives 2013-10-07 05:41 am (UTC)(link)
[Irritating. What the hell is he putting up a fight for? Sherlock is forced to drop the gillyweed so he can deflect the spell, countering with a jelly legs jinx. It was rumored he knew far more dangerous magic than that, but he has yet to prove such claims on prefect duty. Even he has standards.]

Hello to you too, Geiszler.

[You spend long enough in the library, late enough hours, and you start to notice the other people who do the same. You spend too much time in the library, only heading back after hours, and you start to hear when other people are up and about.

Usually those aren't things that Seraphim cares about, except that even after five years of living in this castle, she still occasionally makes the wrong turn when heading up to the Ravenclaw tower, and ends up helplessly lost.

She's been lost for about twenty minutes when she hears something - someone - something? - just around the corner.]


Hello?

Who's there?

[The smell of dungbombs hits her after she speaks up, and well, isn't that pleasant.]

Hello?
majestyofthethrone: chthonicons@ij (Sera - wonder)

[personal profile] majestyofthethrone 2013-10-07 02:29 am (UTC)(link)
Rem-

[He grabs her wrist and she trips a little to run after him]

What are you doing out here?

[Because well, Sera spends all her time in class or the Ravenclaw tower or the library (and occasionally the Quidditch pitch) and she's gotten to know Remus, but apparently not well enough to know about his delinquent side. Grigori, who is a Gryffindor, is so oblivious to anything, and he wouldn't tell anyway.]
majestyofthethrone: (Sera - flabbergast)

[personal profile] majestyofthethrone 2013-10-07 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
[She gives a squeal when she hears it and clings to his hand, running next to him]

Merlin, what is going on-

[But he doubles his speed and she has to keep up, so she stops talking and just lets him lead her wherever he's going. It's not a really great hardship. Honestly, Sirius keeps chasing her, but she's much more interested in Remus, who sits in the library for hours and just reads, absolutely and utterly focused.

She thinks he might have been sorted into the wrong house, sometimes]

[Miles Edgeworth is fifteen years old; he is a Gryffindor; he is a Mudblood; and he has a chip on his shoulder. As a matter of course, he ought to be a shoo-in for being prefect one day, and eventually Head Boy; he gets top marks, he obeys the rules, he can indeed recite the rules from memory - but for his obsessive, persistent, unremitting hatred for Dark magic and Dark wizards.

He makes no secret of it. He is, in point of fact, quite loud about it. That's why, when he walks behind Regulus after the mail's been delivered, the Slytherin next to Regulus elbows him, whispers - ]


There's a snoop behind you. Cover your letter.
serusvir: (SMIRK SMIRK)

[personal profile] serusvir 2013-10-07 02:28 am (UTC)(link)
[Regulus laughs out of principle, but it's doubled when he sees who his friend is talking about. Turning, he shoves his hands into his pockets and raises an eyebrow.]

You're a bit too late, Edgeworth. I've already ordered all the Dark Magic I need for the month.
jurisimpudent: (tetchy)

[personal profile] jurisimpudent 2013-10-07 02:31 am (UTC)(link)
[Edgeworth's lips thin. He's officious in manner, always - stiff and quite unpleasant. He speaks very formally, and even more so when he's been caught in something - as he has now, as he was indeed trying to read over his shoulder.]

I'm walking from my bench at the common table, to the hallway, so that I can go to class. Is this not permitted, Mr. Black?
serusvir: (pic#6089858)

[personal profile] serusvir 2013-10-07 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
Course it is. But you're the one staring over my shoulder. Did you know you can get cursed objects at half-price this month? They're having a special.

[ leslie knows by her second year at hogwarts she wants to be the minister one day. her mother already works at the ministry, so leslie likes to think of herself as familiar with the inner workings of the system (as much as a twelve year old at the time can be). it makes her somewhat odd amongst her peers - this bright and bubbly girl who's already got the plans for her future paved in her head. by the time she's fifteen and a prefect, she's also joining as many clubs as she can find listed in the school's directory just to be ahead of her own game plan.

she may not have very many friends, but she does have responsibilities and those are a lot easier to deal with than the other girls in her house. right now, she's standing in one of the hallways trying to spell a glimmering poster onto the wall reading:

JOIN THE C.U.T.G.L.A.O.H.A.
HOGWART'S FIRST EVER "CLEAN UP THE GREAT LAKE AND OTHER HOGWART'S AREAS" COMMITTEE
MEETING 5PM IN THE GREAT HALL
BRING YOUR OWN NET
(some risk of being attacked by merpeople)

Knope is busy chattering about her post to some helpless first years, who don't know you can just walk away from someone older than you, which gives him enough time to read over the poster once or twice.]

[ Leslie's just finishing forcefully giving the first years some buttons before they go on their merry way and her expression doesn't seem to dim one bit when she turns to face Jack. She recognizes him, being in the same year and all, but Gryffindor and Hufflepuff only really have Potions together this year so she doesn't quite know him. Still, an interested party is an interested party and she can be all over that. ]

Of course! Have you seen the state of the lake lately? I was out with Priscilla Peverell and she nearly fell into a bit she thought was solid ground. Turns out it was really just centaur waste. [ beat ] A lot of centaur waste. [ oh poor, poor priscilla. she hadn't been the same since. ]

So, are you interested in joining?

[Ben Wyatt isn't, maybe, the absolute best at, you know, transfigurations. And Care of Magical Creatures is absolutely terrifying. (I mean, have you ever seen a thestral? Ben...hasn't, but they're probably really freaky.) Herbology also is a little bit tough. But he's an integral part of the Dueling Club (he's the treasurer, doesn't really duel so much, that's a bit risky) and he runs Dungeons and Dragons on Wednesday nights in the Astronomy tower (which is pretty sparsely attended, because apparently wizards aren't really into casting...fake magic when they can cast real magic).

And Ben Wyatt is pretty good at some things. And one of those things is recognizing when there's a really, really unfortunate acronym in front of him.]


That's, um...

It takes a second for her ot recognize as the quiet kid who's friends with Chris Traeger - possibly the only other student at Hogwarts who can rival Leslie's own energy. (Except, you know, Chris is also a part of the Quidditch team and possibly knows the name of every single student in attendance at the castle and probably the healthiest fifteen year old in existence... and Leslie's trying to get the student body to care about gunk in the lake. They have their differences.) ]

Oh, yeah, y...eah, definitely, nearly.

[Ben nods at her in a vague, distracted sort of way. He's realized the problem here, is the thing, but he doesn't really know how to bring it up. Should he bring it up? Probably he should bring it up, because Leslie's really weird but she's also really nice and decent and he does have to admit that Great Lake is really, really, really gross. Ben knows that really well. Some jerk Gryffindor kicked his caldron into it when he was a second year, and he's not some neat freak or anything but three years later it still smells like squid. So this is a good cause.

On the other hand, it's sort of awkward to point this sort of thing out.

So...on the one hand, awkwardness; on the other hand, being a decent person -

Fine. Decent person.]
