AGENTS OF MAGIC – HOGWARTS YEAR 5: FRIENDS AND OTHER STRANGERS 1.63

Céilidh year 6 avie1The door to the Three Broomsticks opened wide and Tom walked through the threshold with Céilidh draped all over him. The two played a couple perfectly. They whispered into each other’s ears, giggled playfully, and held each other close as they walked through pub. Finally settling at a table directly in the middle of the room, the two “young lovers” continued their act, ordering drinks and enjoying each others company. About fifteen minutes into their drinks, the door burst open again.

“How could you?” Rose shrieked, rather proud of how truly terrifying she sounded. “You abandon me for… for that?” She pointed a trembling finger at Ceilidh. Three Broomsticks fell silent as all the eyes in the pub focused on the three.

“Er, um Sherri, hi. Th-this isn’t what it looks like.”

“That?”

Seemingly...

Orlando year 6 avie1Foozle sat beneath the yellow stone gargoyle that sat at the corner. Several first and second year Gryffindors shuffled by him, mostly making no notice of him. A good share of them were staring most intently on a rolled up piece of enchanted parchment, their faces contorted in thought. The Hufflepuff smiled and took his wand a folded piece of parchment of his own. As he unfolded it appeared as nothing special, just a blank piece of old paper. With a brief look about him, he tapped the tip of his wand against it.

“A solemnly swear that A am up to nae good.” His lopsided grin drew higher as inky black lines bled out all across the page, connecting to form the intricate halls of Hogwarts castle. He looked down at its center, reading the two words that sat there against the wall...

Danny year 6 avie1It was crowded outside the Great Hall, and the students were heading in for lunch. Lando was walking beside Nyphadora Tonks talking casual Quidditch when Dan pulled him aside. “Oi, Foozle! A minnit?”

Orlando looked at Tonks a moment, who waved back at him as she headed into the hall, then his fellow fifth year with a grin. “Shuir. Mischief about?” he asked.

“Not exactly.” Dan glanced around at the students jostling around them, and spoke in a low voice. “I need a little help.”

Foozle’s brow furrowed, “Whit ye need, mate?”

“I need you to keep Tom busy later this afternoon, and keep him away from the library.”

Danny’s friend let out a bark of a laugh. “Isna the one place where A coud tak him, and he would niver find ye?”

“Foozle, for serious.”

“No problem. No problem...

Hogwarts-CrestThere was a resounding THUMP! as Sam hit her head against the low ceiling of the broom shed.

“Blimey! You trying to bleeding kill me, O’Reilly?”

“I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry!” he babbled, waving his arms in an attempt to get her out into the open air and gesticulate at the same time. “I wasn’t trying to sneak up on you or anything.”

“What are you doing here? ” she demanded, rubbing her sore head and glaring at him.

“Well, I was going to grab my broom and practice on the pitch for a while, but since I ran into you, I figure I’ll apologize instead. What I said to you on the train was stupid.”

“Then why’d you say it?”

“Because I’M stupid! … wow, walked right into that one, didn’t I?”

“I barely had to do any of the work.”

“You…” he paus...

Nicolette year 6 avie1Danny sat on a plush couch in Ravenclaw Tower, his feet propped on the low mahogany table before him. He stared idly out of the windows, looking at the mountains. It seemed Dan was always staring at the mountain range in the distance..

Nicolette came trouncing down the stairs jovially until she noticed that someone else was in the room to which she collected herself and continued to the common room followed closely behind by Rose who bounced in and flopped onto the big fluffy couch next to Danny. The brunette laughed slightly behind a sigh. “Lady like, Rosie, lady like.”

“Hello, ‘Colette.” Danny glanced over his shoulder at his fellow fifth-year, and went back to looking at the mountains. He turned to Rose. “Good thing we didn’t see Nicolette trouncing down the stairs so happily.”

Nic look...

Hogwarts-Crest“Hey Tom?” Bobby said tentatively as he sat down across from Tom at the large table in the Gryffindor common room.

“Hmmm?” Tom just barely acknowledged him as he kept his nose firmly buried in his History of Magic books.

“I was going to ask you about Quidditch.”

Tom turned his bleary eyes toward Bobby, and closed the book, “What’s up Bobby?”

“Well, I hear you’re looking for more and well…I’ve only had to hear you and Aeryn talk about it everyday for the past,” Britto started to reach for the nearest calendar before he smirked back at his friend.”Seriously, you guys are my friends and it sounds like you guys need help. I don’t know much outside of what I’ve heard you two have talked about…So you’re probably going to need to treat me as if I were a first year on this one.”

Tom smiled and lea...

Danny year 6 avie1Danny was apprehensive as he walked across the lawn, his Comet 220 lying across his shoulder. His stomach fluttered with nervousness as he approached, further enhance when he saw Aeryn already waiting for him on the pitch with her broom in hand ready to begin.

“You’re late,” She teased.

“I am?” Dan pouted a little. “I’m so sairy.”

“Chill Danny. I’m teasing,” Aeryn laughed. “It helps to stay light.. Keeps you on the broom,”

Danny scowled. “I’m nae in the mood fer lightness, Ryn, I just want t’get this over. I cannae believe I agreed t’go flyin’ with Cissy.”

“Flying calls for as much patience as it does skill, Danny,” Aeryn smiled, checking his broom over to make sure it was safe and flight-worthy. “Hmm.. Comet 220. Sturdy enough. This should serve you well. You ready?”

“I suppose...

Laun year 6 avie“So this is what it feels like Dame.” Laun said smugly as they entered the Slytherin common room. Damien for his part had a sinking feeling as he followed.

“Do I even want to know?” He shrugged with a roll of the eyes, his sense of doom increasing.

“Power.”

“Oh God…”

“No, no. No need to bow, or curtsey or any such thing.” Laun said, Damien silently wished for Dumbledore to burst in and announce that Laun becoming a prefect was a gigantic mistake…perhaps the venerable headmaster could throw in some pointing and laughing for good measure.

“Oh yeah this isn’t gonna end anytime soon.” Damien said his head falling into his hands.

“Gather round young ones, take out your notepads and prepare to hang on my glorious words!” He said gesturing to the first years...

Hogwarts-CrestTom stared bleary eyed into the porridge he had just heaped into the bowl in front of him. “It’s already the first week of school and I’m studying harder then ever before.”

“Well you have to pass History of Magic and that’s all there is to it.”

“Yeah well I didn’t figure I’d have two professors. Nicolette is actually giving me assignments on top of the ones from Binns.”

Aeryn tried not to laugh as her eyes met the Ravenclaw grinning from her own table opposite them.”She’s a teddy bear really,” Aeryn waved lightly over at Nicolette. “Don’t worry about her.”

“It’s not her I’m worried about,” he said as he let a huge yawn escape.

“Morning,”An extremely chipper Cecelia Llewelyn said as she threw herself onto the bench in front of Aeryn and Tom.

Tom only grunted.

“Morning Cissy,” Aeryn Grinned...

Hogwarts-CrestForster walked slowly back into the castle, mindful of the stings he had received in the greenhouse. He was quite grateful he had a free period today, he would have to replay his mistakes in his mind, and it would give him a few chances to experiment with a few potions and tonics he was developing. Sprout must have been distracted because she didn’t notice that he had snuck one of the venomous tentacula seedlings out of class. Provided that he didn’t accidentally kill it, he would see if Ambrosia would sneak it back in for him.

Looking up Forster smiled. Despite being stung he was in good spirits, and seeing his two of his favorite people had him feeling even better. He waved at Dierdre and Ambrosia with the hand that had received the fewest barbs from the tentacula.

Rose grinned and waved...
