Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 5: Curiouser and Curiouser 3.60

Laun year 6 avieThe empty classroom was the perfect place to study. Nicolette sat on the desk reading their history textbook, her feet dangling a few inches above the floor. A bright blue quill peeked out from the piles of curls atop her head. She paused for a moment to write something down on a length of parchment. Laun was scheduled to be here for their little study session any minute.

Soon enough the door blew open and three plates filled with treats flew in, followed shortly by Laun Orris-Whitmoor. He smiled as he came over to Nic, hugging her.

“I know how much you love Raspberry, these are a new thing I’m trying called Raspberry Roses.” She now saw the plates were filled with wine-red colored flower shaped pastries. “Try one...

Hogwarts-CrestNic and Belle – Diefenbaker lying between them – sat up chatting on Belle’s bed long after the other girls had finally dozed off, a familiar chainsaw-like sound emanating from behind Sam’s curtains.

”My god,” said Nic, her face a mixture of disbelief and disgust, completely taken aback by Sam’s snoring. ”Is she part dragon?”

”You get used to it. Or so I’m told. I keep having to stop Cor and Lizard from smothering her with a pillow.”

”Why stop them?” and Nic gave Belle an evil little wink. ”Well at least you could quiet her down a bit.” And at that the Ravenclaw pointed her wand at Sam and uttered Muffilato.

However, much to her surprise, her spell did nothing. ”What? But I’m sure I cast that right.”

”Don’t bother,” Belle said as she let out a little forlorn sm...

Danny year 6 avie1The Gentlemen, Daniel DuMorne, Thomas Llewelyn, and Orlando MacFoozle, walked three across out of the castle at lunch hour. The Ravenclaw, the Gryffindor, and the Hufflepuff laughed and pushed each other as they joked their way strode onto the grounds. Albus Dumbledore had on more than one occasion noted to his faculty that, despite the rather dubious chicanery the boys were known for around the school, they were a testament to the inter-house bonds that should exist here at Hogwarts. The truth was that the friendships between houses that they and indeed many of their classmates shared was rather unusual when compared to those that had come before them, but to these boys who had grown up like brothers they didn’t know any other way.

“An than, an than, an than,” Foozle kept trying to get hi...

Hogwarts-Crest“Lizard, what in Merlin’s name is that!?” Sam exclaimed,completely repulsed by what her roommate held in her hands.

“A motorcycle jacket!” said the punkish Hufflepuff excitedly. “A Ramones motorcycle jacket! It’s for Belle.”

Tatiana arched her eyebrow. “And what’s she supposed to do with it?”

“Wear it of course” said Lizard matter-of-factly.

Sam was stunned. ”Wear it? Why would she do something like that?”

“Well I’m sure she’ll love it,” said Lou Lou – who had arrived five minutes earlier – not because she believed it but because she just tended to agree with Lizard out of habit.

Lizard was nonplussed. “Hey when are the cold fish and uber girlie-girl getting here? Belle should be back from Hagrid’s soon...

Hogwarts-Crest“Thanks Fors,”Belle smiled as she gave her fellow Hufflepuff a quick hug. She was looking at a new book her Chaser had given her for her birthday as the morning light came through the ground floor windows of their common room.

“No problem,” said Forster as he motioned to the copy of Vexing Vehicles: A Guide to Automotive Magic that Belle now held in her hand. “When I heard about the car, I sent an owl away for it lickety split. Especially since it’s a Bug, an undetectable extension charm would probably be a good thing to learn.”

“Well, this’ll be so cool. Wonder if I can make it fly?” Belle asked with a big grin, knowing full well the intense restrictions on such a spell by the Office for the Misuse of Muggle Artefacts.

“Well, if you do get it to fly, you never got the book from me” Fors...

Nicolette year 6 avie1He saw her sitting there, chatting away, unassuming, unknowing, he smiled to himself as he stalked his prey. Even her companions did not sense his presence and in one swift strike —

“HI NICKY!” He shouted as he hugged her tightly from behind, practically lifting her off the ground.

Nicolette smiled at Laun’s unexpected mood swing, putting her hands lightly on his forearms around her. “Nicky?”

“I’m trying it out.” He smirked.

“Oh,” She gave his arm a pat before turning to face him, “You do know that I rarely let people survive calling me that right?”

From her spot on the bench near Nicolette, Rose nodded. “It’s true, Laun. And we’d miss you if you were all dead and cut up into tiny pieces.”

“But I’m special...

Tommy year 6 avie1Tom stifled a yawn. He had been up all night studying History of Magic for a test the night before. As the Gryffindor fifth year shoveled a fork full of eggs into his mouth, the familiar rush of feathers and beating wings pulled him from his self-imposed stupor. As he watched, the parliament of owls filled the ceiling of the Great Hall. Marus landed in front of him holding a letter. “Hey old man,” Tommy said as scratched his pet owl behind the ears, “What have you got for me there?” Tom took the letter from Marus’s beak and turned it over in his hands, “Ah mum, this will be interesting.” He smiled as he opened the letter.

My dear Michael,

I heard about what happened at the Halloween dance from your uncle Alcander. I am shocked that Orlando and Daniel would pull such a stunt.

Predictable.

Orlando year 6 avie1“He’s awfully fond of you, Foozle,” Audrey chuckled as her cat, Bowie, had crawled up onto her boyfriend’s lap and started pushing his head into the boy’s chest.

Lando put his hand on the cat’s neck and dug his fingers into its scruff. “Aye,” he said as the cat purred and put more force against him.

He felt Wolfwood burrow himself up under his jumper and into the small of his back between him and the wall. The ferret pressed up against the wall and started pawing at the Hufflepuff’s spine. Oddly enough, the ferret seemed to get somewhat ornery whenever Audrey’s cat was around. It wasn’t that he didn’t like cats. Wolfwood was often happy to play with Monkey or Wyatt, despite the fact that the maine coon practically dwarfed the weasel like a lion to a kitten...

Hogwarts-CrestBelle wandered back from the entrance after talking with her dad, and was heading past the kitchens to the Hufflepuff common room, as a little blonde rocket came racing after her.

”Belle! Wait up!”

Belle was physically and emotionally exhausted – from the game, the confrontation in the hospital wing, her fight with Shawn, and then her talk with her father and getting her car – but she knew that she owed Rose an explanation. She was friends with both Danny and Eric – in fact she was Eric’s only other real friend.

”Belle, I have to ask, what happened?”

”Well, were you watching the game?” Belle asked, knowing Rose seldom paid attention to Quidditch and she wanted to know just how much of the situation she had to recount.

”Not all of it,” the Ravenclaw said without a tra...

Tommy year 6 avie1Tom stormed out of the hospital wing and rounded the corner toward the set of staircases that went to Gryffindor tower. Bloody stubborn, that’s what she is. Danny did it on purpose my arse! Tom was in such a snit that he didn’t even notice Tatiana standing against the wall right near the staircase.

Seeing him round the corner, Tatiana bounced off the wall and almost collided into Tom. “How is he?! I can’t believe what happened!”

Tom jumped and stopped dead in his tracks, “W-what?”

Tatiana, still in her yellow and black gear with her hair pinned to her head by her goggles looked at him with worry. “Danny. . . How is he? I’d ask Belle but she seems pretty enojado.”

Tom shook his head, “Don’t even mention Belinda Beaverbrook right now...
