Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 5: Of Bludgers and Ballrooms 2.62

Orlando year 6 avie1“TOMMY!” Tom Llewellyn best mates quite ceremoniously and even more unexpectedly strode right into the Gryffindor common room.

“Oi, brilliant costumes mates,” Tom beamed as he strode down the stairs towards the other two.

“You know boys,” Bill said as he followed behind Tom, “I would ask how you got in here, but I think I know,” he eyed Tommy.

“Bill,” Foozle clasped the Weasley by the shoulder, whispering low and serious, “ye canna be implyin’ something unseemly aboot the foonder o yuir awn hoose?”

“I would never do that,” Bill winked, “Besides it…” he stared at Foozle’s muzzle, “Is that real?”

Fooze stood back with mock incredulity. “Well, it’s no a prop, mate.”

“Aye. He’s a real wolf, that Foozle. Be glad yuir wee sister innit old enough tae attend school.”

“This Bigby Wouf isna a babbie...

Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 5: Of Bludgers and Ballrooms 2.61

Hogwarts-CrestShawn raised one brow as he passed by Dan, before shrugging, firing off the riddle’s answer to the Ravenclaw guardian as he went. He spotted Eric and stopped to give the poor kid a helping had up and a quick dustoff before heading to his dorm room to change into his costume. One of the nicest things about this particular costume was its simplicity, and the fact that he didn’t need a smattering of magic to pull it off either, aside from the misting of a hair growing potion on his face to induce a decent five o’ clock shadow. He tilted his hat to himself in the mirror, fingering the corded leather that was within easy reach at his back even as he adjusted to the slight weight of the “reproduction” at his hip...

Céilidh year 6 avie1The black robes billowed in the air as the great bat like shape moved hurriedly down the halls, the greasy black hair clinging to the figures face. Two fourth years dressed as house elves scrambled down the stair way and into the path of the oncoming force

“Out of my way!!!” snapped Belle as the students hurried out of her way. She was beginning to realize that dressing as the spitting image of Severus Snape had some added benefits.

She moved with purpose towards Ravenclaw Tower to meet Eric and get him ready for the night. All the while she kept on reminding herself that in just a few hours this nightmare of a dance would be over and she could finally have a decent night’s sleep.


“I still don’t understand just why it is you’re going to the dance with Foozle and not Forster,” Aeryn sai...

Hogwarts-CrestForster whistled as he fastened the tie-dye dress robes. He tapped his sleeve once and muttered the incantation his grandfather had left in the pocket. The patterns began to swirl upon a background of emerald green. Tapping and muttering once more, the robes became a solid emerald green. He studied himself in the mirror and glanced at his cat who was cleaning himself on Forster’s pillow.

“What do you think, Brock?”

The cat gave a non-committal “Mew” and went back to the task at hand, or at tongue and paw as happened to be the case. Forster restored the robes to the swirling pattern. Patting himself down to make sure he had everything, he set off for the hallway.

As he passed through the commons area, thoughts of quidditch popped into his head...

Tommy year 6 avie1“Oi, what do you think?” Bill stood in front of Tommy. He was wearing old farming robes, a straw hat, and his feet were bare.

“Let me guess,” Tom said with a smile as he looked up from his own costume, “Renard, the farm boy wizard who saved the princess of the veelas from the Giant Mogdor?”

“You are good sir,” Bill winked and went back to finishing his costume, “How did you guess so quick?”

“Elementary, my good man,” Tom said as he applied the fake beard to his chin and pointed his wand at it, “Apoxrifix,” the beard sealed nicely to his chin. “First of all you are going with Sarah Harper.”

“Yeah.”

“And she is one of the few blonds in this school that is beautiful enough to go as a veela.”

“That is definitely true.”

“And third…”

“Third?”

“Third...

Danny year 6 avie1Danny looked in the mirror. He was dressing in his best formal outfit before layering on his costume, but he couldn’t quite get his sporran to hang right. “Bloody kilt. ‘Shuir, Foozle! Kilts will be a great idea!’ I kin be such a daft bloke sometimes.”

He looked about but could find none of his housemates about to help. A drawback of spending most of his waking hours with Tommy, Foozle, Rose or Nicolette. He fought with the garb a bit more, then layered on his Dumbledore outfit. Adding the false beard, he waved his wand and tapped his face, sticking it to his chin. A pair of glasses and a pointy hat completed the guise.

Checking the mirror, Danny found everything was in order and dashed for the stairs. He could just make it in time to meet Cissy at her common room...

Orlando year 6 avie1“Bloody hell, Fooze!” David Fordham’s jaw went slightly slack as his bunk-mate padded through the dorm.”That is… I don’t even know what to say, mate.” Ford repositioned his eye patch up onto his forehead. Between the bad vision and the transfigured hook on his hand, he was now not so sure that a Captain Hook was such a great idea. “If I didn’t know better, I’d say it was a full moon.”

As Ford was not a man generally known for his exuberance, Foozle felt a bit of pride from his reaction.”Yeah?” Fooze adjusted the deep green, black, and orange kilt on his haunches, climbed up onto his bed and looked down into the mirror that laid out on his pillow. His hazel eyes stared back, made all the more crisp in the dark fur that now framed them...

Hogwarts-CrestShawn gave a quiet laugh to himself as he disentangled himself from the rather affectionate Golden Eagle that his uncle’s department used for private deliveries, checking the contents of the box one last time before heading down to meet his date. His date… He still had trouble believing that he’d managed to snag the girl, even if it hadn’t been in as… manly a way as he’d have liked.


Shawn looked over to where Sam was sitting in the Great Hall, and swallowed a lump of nerves. The dance was getting closer, and as far as he knew Sam hadn’t been asked yet. But she was so pretty, there had to be more guys than just him that wanted to go with her. Mentally, he kicked himself...

Rose year 6 avie1Nicolette looked at her hair doubtfully in the mirror between her and Ambrosia’s bed, the long black curls sitting on her shoulders did not look quite right. Her dress hung in a black garment bag that hid all traces of her hard work. She had already spent a good chunk of time getting other parts of her costume perfected with secret charms and yards of gold fabric. All that was left were the stubborn raven locks that presently seemed to be in open defiance of her wishes. “I never put it down. . . but I think Laun likes hair down. Boys like hair down right?” She looked at the girl sitting next to her who was also getting ready.

“Just let me do it!” Ambrosia dug around in her trunk, past colored ribbons and sachets filled with mysterious ingredients, pulling out the various finishing touches ...

Hogwarts-CrestForster looked up from the letter, and the accompanying package to smile at Deidre, “So you see, Grandpa Pythia gave me a few ideas. But in my opinion, muggle theatrical makeup would be easier.”

“How could muggle make-up be better than a simple charm?” Dierdre couldn’t imagine smothering her skin with all those paints. Normal make-up was one thing, the plaster that muggle actors and such wore was another.

“Charms is one of my best subjects, and even I’ve messed up a few of them. And this combination of color charm and glamour charm isn’t exactly a simple undertaking. And unfortunately, Potions aren’t necessarily the way to go either since a pinch too much of one ingredient or too little of another and you get the wrong shade, or you have to go to Madame Pomfrey to get your color fixed.”
