Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 5: Friends and Enemies 4.50

Rose year 6 avie1She’d kept her promise. Humming to herself, Rose brushed the remaining crumbs off her striped mittens, certain that the starving woodpecker -and all his friends- were full and happy. With one task for the morning complete she made her way to the inviting warmth of the greenhouses. The sight of other footprints in the light dusting of fresh snow that covered the path didn’t concern her much. Anyone here at this hour was obviously as eager to spend some extra time surrounded by the almost intoxicating aroma of rich soil as she was.

Sighing happily as the warm air washed over her, she tugged off her hat and mittens and began to make her way over to the rows of animus vepres. They needed some attention and she needed them thriving, even if it did mean a few pricks from the thorns...

Nicolette year 6 avie1“And did you even look over that assignment from Binns?” David Fordham stabbed the thick stew in front of him with his spoon. “I swear that man asks the impossible. If he weren’t dead, I’d be of half a mind to do the job myself,” groaned the Hufflepuff.

“Mmmhmm.” Foozle shifted his head from one palm to the other. He’d barely touched his plate. He hadn’t bitten his sandwich and was completely unaware of the bowl sitting in front of him. It was quite possible he had been holding the same chip since they sat down.

Ford continued, “And then if you add in all that crap from Snape? Are we supposed to breathe.” He sighed and finally ate a mouthful of the stew. “I almost feel guilty being here eating, you know what I mean?”

“Mmmhmm.”

Tatiana flicked a crisp at him from her plate...

Hogwarts-CrestBelle was pacing back and forth in front of the stile at the end of Hogsmeade Village. She was practically bouncing in anticipation as she saw Eric, Bobby and Rose come wandering down the lane. “You made it!” She came bounding up to them, practically tackling them as she came up.

Rose grinned at the abnormally bouncy Belle. “Sorry we’re late. Bobby and I got… distracted.” She blushed a little then looked around at her friends. “So what is it that has you so frighteningly excited?”

“Oh… nothing.” Belle lied, an evil grin on her face. “Can’t a girl just be excited to see her friends?”

“Oh you are such a liar. Are you going to beat us all up now or something?” she teased.

“Hmmmm…”Belle actually seemed to contemplate exactly that. “Nah, I’m still on probation...

Céilidh year 6 avie1The three Scots made their way from Hogsmeade back to the castle grounds on foot and, for the most part, in silence. Where they would usually be joking and teasing, arm-in-arm or arm-over-shoulder, there was now tension and distance. The boys trudged slightly ahead of Céilidh, her mood having grown increasingly foul since the meeting with Audrey and the ensuing argument in the aftermath.

It felt like the very core of their friendship had been shaken, and it wasn’t a feeling she particularly enjoyed. She kept going over things in her head, and they just wouldn’t add up. She knew for a fact that he’d had nothing to do with the prefect’s bath either, since they’d been together at the time. She knew that Lando couldn’t have done anything as had been done to Evan. It just wasn’t who he was...

Orlando year 6 avie1“Cannae ye juist drap it?” Orlando groaned the question for at least the third time. He set down his mug. The sudsy remnants of butterbeer slowly trickled down the sides and settled in the base of the glass.

“No really, nae.” Céilidh sat across from him. She had been grilling him about his whereabouts during the incident with Evan Whitaker since they had gotten to Hogsmeade. “Ye wisna in yuir bunk, Ford wis up studying. Iverybody kens yuir no ane tae git up in the smaw oors…”

“Ford studies tae muckle,” Foozle muttered. He gave Danny a small pleading look, but got little assistance in return. He looked back to the empty mug, still unable to turn his gaze to the fiery haired Gryffindor across the table. “Why are ye gaun on aboot aw this? Ah didnae dae it. Ye ken Ah didnae dae it...

Hogwarts-CrestForster Barclay trudged down to the potion master’s dungeon. For close to a week it had been the same thing every day. After classes, before dinner, report to the dungeons to scrub cauldrons. And if he and Tatiana didn’t get enough done, they would have to come back after dinner to scrub some more. All told, it didn’t leave much time for studying, or for his and Samantha’s treks to the library to delve for the wayward book that had started all this trouble.

He picked up the brush and began to work on the first cauldron before looking up to Tatiana and started to apologize for what seemed like the hundredth time.

“I’m sorry you’re stuck down here with me.”

Giving her housemate a smile meant to cheer him up, Tatiana shrugged. “Don’t you worry about it Fors! It was worth it to tell Snape off...

Tommy year 6 avie1Tom stormed into the empty classroom that Professor McGonagall had set aside for these tutoring lessons, and threw himself into the seat across from his cousin Nicolette, “Morning.” Hes said curtly as he ripped his History of Magic book from his backpack.

Both of Nicolette’s eyebrows jerked up into her hairline. “Something bothering you cousin?”

Tom grunted an answer that wasn’t really any true words. He then took a deep breath before he truly answered her, “I had a long night last night.” Tom pulled a scroll out of his pack and handed it to Nicolette, “Here’s that essay you wanted.”

Dropping the roll onto the desk, she gave him a concerned look. “Anything you want to talk about?”

Tom shut his eyes, “Those damn twins. I can barely take it anymore.”

“What happened now?” Those shaped brows t...

Hogwarts-CrestThough the bright January sun did little to warm the winter air, the walk to Hogsmeade seemed almost magical as they made their way through the glistening snow. Shielding her eyes from the dazzling light, Rose beamed up at Bobby and slipped her mittened hand into his. Her green eyes then glanced almost nervously at the elaborately decorated bag in his free hand. She’d made finding the perfect gift something of a personal quest and now that she had the toy she was eager to deliver it in person. “Do you think she’ll like it?” she asked for at least the tenth time since they began their walk to the wizarding village.

“I’m sure she’ll like it hon,” he replied. His voice was getting more monotone as he tried to hide any annoyance that lingered...

Tommy year 6 avie1“Hey Tati” Cecelia called out over the throngs of students in the halls, “Tati wait up.”

Tatiana slowed and pulled to the side of the group, letting her boyfriend’s little sister catch up. “Yeah Cecelia?”

Cecelia hugged her older brother’s girlfriend, “You left before I got to say goodbye Christmas night,” she let go and smiled happily, “Did you have fun?”

“Si” The dark skinned girl smiled and nodded. “It was a good way to enjoy myself before mass.” She rubbed her back dramatically. “I think I am still sore!”

The Gryffindor third year cocked her hair to the side, “Sore?”

“Yeah, I sat stood and kneeled enough for this year!”

Cecelia giggled, “Yeah that sounds like loads of fun.” She held up her wrist, “Look at what Danny gave me.”

“Oh! That is hermoso!!” Touching the joined charms admiringl...

Rose year 6 avie1There was no such thing as a miracle cure in situations like this, but since Tonks didn’t appear to be ready to leave the hospital wing anytime soon, Rose decided that a nice cup of hot chocolate couldn’t hurt. Leaving the distraught girl in Céilidh’s not entirely comforting care, the blonde prefect ducked out the door and began to make her way to the great hall.

“Get the pictures developed right away. This is perfect, exactly what I was writing about.” The student with the camera slipped away as Rose stared, hands on her hips. Hearing the sound behind her Katharine Tarbell turned and gave a completely unapologetic smile. “Oh good, a prefect. Care to give me an official word?”

For a second Rose was almost speechless. “How… how could you?” she sputtered, color rising in her fair cheeks.
