Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 5: Curiouser and Curiouser 3.25

Hogwarts-CrestAlone he sat tinkering while he waited. She said she’d be here by now and on a project like this an extra set of eyes and another mind helped. Everything about this had to be perfect because it’s intent was devastating but to make it work was delicate and tedious like an art. “When will she get here?” Bobby asked himself as he started on the next rune.

Belle came wandering into Flitwick’s Charms classroom, where she promised to meet Bobby, her arms burdened down by books. “‘My god Bobby, how many of these books do we need? I thought Madam Pince was going to send me out of there with the entire library.”

“Never said this would be easy Belle, but better to do it right the first time than to have to research everything again and again...

Hogwarts-CrestShawn came bustling down from the tower when he saw Eric and Rose coming his way.

“Hey Eric, Rose,” Shawn said jovially. “You remember we’ve got practice in an hour, Eric?”

Eric blanched a little. “Um… yeah practice. I guess the first match is… um pretty soon.”

“Don’t be so nervous Eric,” Shawn said reassuringly to his housemate. “You’re coming along great. I know Belle’s put together a good team this year, but with you, Danny and myself, Hufflepuff won’t have a chance the first match.”

“Yeah… I guess Shawn,” Eric said in his usually timid voice. “I just… I’ve never played in front of people before.”

“Don’t be silly. You’ll be just fine.” Rose patted her friend’s arm, trying to give him some confidence...

Rose year 6 avie1Though the day hadn’t been particularly long or taxing, Rose found her steps dragging as she made her way to the Ravenclaw tower. Even the prospect of ogling Bobby later in Astronomy couldn’t seem to make her smile… much. Somehow, the sight of Eric on his hands and knees on the floor as he gathered up his scattered books and scrolls seemed sadly appropriate on a day like this.

Kneeling beside her friend, Rose didn’t say a word as she helped him pick up the lost items. It didn’t surprise her that there was no culprit in sight, doing something mean to Eric then running away seemed to be the latest fad among bullies. But since she hadn’t passed anyone in the hall… “They were from our house, weren’t they?”

Eric just shrugged, picking up his last book with a sigh...

Tommy year 6 avie1“Good morning ladies,” Tom plopped himself down at the Ravenclaw table across from Nicolette and Rose, “I gather that our young Mister DuMorne hasn’t bothered to get himself out of bed yet?”

Nicolette’s spoon clinked against her tea cup as she mixed a little honey in. “It is Sunday, no class. What do you think?”

Rose grinned and scooped a fingerful of whipped cream off her hot chocolate. “Besides, he barely makes it up even when he has class to go to,” she laughed, licking her finger clean just to bug her friend.

The brunette clucked her tongue at her friend before putting a bit of plum jelly on her croissant. “Think you have enough whipped cream?”

“I’m not sure.” The tiny blonde peered into her mug then licked the cream again...

Nicolette year 6 avie1“Sorry I’m late,” Tom rushed in slid into the seat across from Nicolette, “I had a group of first years damn near attack me wanting my autograph of all things.”

Nicolette rolled her eyes exaggeratedly. “Big celebrity now hmmmm?” She grinned, teasing.

“If Lando and Dan hear about this I will never hear the end of it.”

“Well. . .” She paused for a second. “I suppose I will try not to tell Danny.”

Tom seemed a thousand miles away, “Mmmmhmmm, we ready.”

She looked at him suspiciously. “Well, I am.”

“Ok, so where do we start?”

“How about the Pink Elephant Fiasco?” She eyed him, curious if he was paying attention.

Tom didn’t even blink, “Uh huh sure.”

She huffed, not being one who enjoyed it when her students ignored her. “Tom!”

Tom shook his head, “Huh?”

“You just agreed to study pink elephants...

Hogwarts-CrestLaun loved potions, he knew all Slytherin said that due to their teacher’s considerable bias in that area but in reality Laun’s love of cooking translated well into Potions. Though his happy mood was not helped when he saw a young first year Hufflepuff, Louis Sterling if Laun remembered the boy’s name correctly, being assaulted by some of his fellow Slytherins.

“Avis! Oppugno!” Laun shouted his wand in his hand almost before he realized it himself, springing forth from the end of the wand was a flock of attacking birds that pecked and clawed fiercely at the Slytherins, who promptly ran away, he walked over to help the little boy up with his fresh black eye and his split lip he was a sorry sight indeed...

Orlando year 6 avie1On the grass Orlando MacFoozle sat against the cool brick. The rucksack beside him had spilled a few books out. Some were even text books. Biting down on a quill, he pulled out a worn pad of parchment and dug around for the ink well, which he set up on his History of Magic text. Two dips in the well and the quill was ready to go. Yawning, he held it over the paper and did nothing. Foozle looked up and stared across the grounds.

The high castle wall cast a long shadow which engulfed him completely along with half the lawn that stretched toward the Whomping Willow. The massive old tree stood alone on the grounds. All the students milling about kept a healthy radius. Even the birds knew better than to approach its airspace...

Hogwarts-CrestShawn viciously tore into the heavy bag he’d erected in the corner of the dorm room, as the bag silently contemplated begging for mercy. He’d heard about the altercation between Tom and his cousin and company and it had taken all his willpower not to go and beat the pure-blooded tar out of them. He forced himself to relax, expelling his breath in one explosive “whoosh”, before stalking over to his bed and seating himself in a cross legged position, back straight, head slightly bowed, and arms crossed over his chest as he closed his eyes. He began to murmur to himself.

“Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie , cheat or steal. These are things for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. And never allow thoughts of gain lead you into the pursuit of evil.”

It was th...

Tommy year 6 avie1Ianto Coleman clutched his school books like his life depended on it as he rushed across the grounds trying to get inside before he was noticed by a group of third year Slytherins that lounged by a large oak tree. He was so happy that he had passed them with out error that he hadn’t noticed the slender leg of Mariella Raven as she hooked his own sending him sprawling to the ground and his books flew across the ground. “Aw look,” Mariella sneered as the rest of her friends laughed behind her, “the poor mudblood needs to watch where he’s going or else something bad might happen,” she nonchalantly flicked her wand toward a stack of his papers, “Incendio.” Again her friends roared with laughter as his homework went up in flames, “You really should be more careful.”

“Desino flamma...

Laun year 6 avieLaun had gone to his room to get some of the items he had taken from Filch, he had put off his detective work for far too long; whoever had framed Dan and Fooze was probably thinking they were just going to get away with it. ‘Not a chance.’ Laun thought to himself as went to look under his bed for where he had hidden his equipment, ‘No one gets the upper hand on Laun Dolios Orris-Whitmoor!’

“SURPRISE!”

Laun screamed, not unlike a girl, as he jumped to his feet. He looked wildly around to see the grinning visage of his eldest sister Artemis, just before he was smothered into a bone-cracking hug.

“Artemis?” Laun croaked as he struggled free of his sister’s embrace.

“Did I scare you?” She smiled, knowing full well that she had.

“What are you doing here Artemis?”

“Let’s wait until we can f...
