Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 5: Between Trust and Deception 5.100

Tommy year 6 avie1The green flame subsided and Tom stepped through into the Ministry of Magic. He had been here on several occasions with his dad so he was used to it’s splendor, but still it was breathtaking. The green flame flared up again and Professor McGonagall stepped through, “This way Michael,” she pointed in the direction of the large fountain that depicted the golden figures of a wizard, witch, centaur, goblin, and a house-elf.

Tom followed the transfiguration professor through the crowded main lobby toward a series of elevators, a very familiar voice boomed over the crowd. “There’s my boy,” Giles, the Llewelyn patriarch beamed as he opened his arms wide to his youngest son.

Tom threw his own arms around his father, as Professor McGonagall and Tom’s mother exchanged pleasantries. “Hi dad.”

“Might...

Nicolette year 6 avie1Nicolette and Ambrosia walked side by side down the hallway, taking the long way to lunch from a Defense Against the Dark Arts class that the brunette had seemed somewhat distracted through. “I’m fine…” She sighed softly, trying not to sound too agitated.

The little blonde arched a brow as she looked sideways at the taller girl. “Okay…” She drew the word out but decided not to ask why Nic had suddenly felt the need to announce it. After all, she hadn’t exactly been getting a lot of truthful answers from her friend lately.

“Just thought I’d head it off at the pass.” She knew her sub-par performance would make her suspect but she found classes they shared with Hufflepuff now required all of her attention to not look over her shoulder, just to the left, in that collection of yellow.

“Okay...

Tommy year 6 avie1Even the walls of the castle seemed to be weeping. The steady grey rain poured down on the school and grounds. It had been going on all day. It was probably good for the grass… but it was horrible for parties.

“This is a disaster!” It had taken the panicked little blonde much longer than she wanted to track down her friend and co-party planner. Now, with her tiny fists on his robes, shaking him slightly, she was about ready to cry or scream or both. “It has to stop! Please tell me it’s gonna stop.”

“It’ll stop, it’ll stop,” Tom said with a smile, “I checked the Daily Prophet this morning.”

“Promise?” Giving him another shake, Rose stared up at him hopefully...

Hogwarts-CrestEven at this height, the warm spring wind was lightly scented. Rose sat on the stone rampart of the Astronomy tower, her legs dangling into the air below. “We’ve had some really really great birthday parties this year,” she said to her oldest friend, green eyes staring out at the landscape around the castle.

“Yeah,” Tom said as he leaned against the wall by the doorway, “so what are we gonna do about Bobby?”

“It has to be different. And special. And fun.” Her golden curls blew across her face as she turned her head to look back at him.

Tommy pushed away from the wall, “Well let’s see,” he walked over and sat next to Rose, “We’ve already done more than our fair share of surprise parties this year, so I think that’s been pretty much done to death, you got any better ideas?”

“I always have ...

Céilidh year 6 avie1All fifth years will be required to attend a short meeting with their Head of House during the second week of May, in which they will be given the opportunity to discuss their future careers. Time of individual appointments are listed below.

The words smacked at Céilidh like a ball-peen hammer to the forehead. It wasn’t enough that she was worried about Lando and Danny and their invisible foe, but O.W.L.s were looming as well. And now they were expected to pick their profession? At this age, with everything going on around them, they were supposed to settle on what they wanted to do for the rest of their lives. Adults really didn’t make sense to her sometimes...

Danny year 6 avie1Danny was led by Cassidy Chambers from the Ravenclaw tower to Professor Flitwick’s office. As Cass left, the Head of Ravenclaw motioned for Daniel to take a chair. Sitting, Danny frowned. “Ahmno shuir whit happent, perfesser, but I dinnae dae it. Ah’ve been locked in the touer aw week.”

“What are you talking about Daniel?” The Charms Master squeaked from behind his desk.

“White’er it is yuir brining me in for,” the fifth-year lad said with a frown. “Ah’m never called tae saemane’s office unless Ah’m in trouble.”

“You are here,” he sighed, “to discuss your future.”

“Whit? Dinnae tell me Ah’m being expelled! Tha’s nae fair!

Professor Flitwick took off his glasses and rubbed his eyes, “I don’t mean that Daniel,” his voice straining with frustration, “I mean after seventh year.”

Danny blinked...

Orlando year 6 avie1Orlando sat on his bed. It was quiet in the Hufflepuff’s dorm. Since the night of “The Incident” he’d been confined to his House except for meals and classes. On the one hand he’d gotten to spend some extra time with Sam. Even if it had been mandated by the headmaster, it was nice. Between her and O’Riley and then her and Forster plus Quidditch, and him and the Gentlemen’s antics and all his other extra curricular activities, the two of them hadn’t seen much of each other.

He could have done with a little less “Forster and Sam” time. Being with a cute coupley couple only served to remind him what his house arrest kept him from. And so it was that Foozle sat in the dim light of the dorm at night while his housemates slept peacefully. In his lap was a notebook...

Danny year 6 avie1It was near dusk as Cecelia snuck her way toward Ravenclaw tower. Ever since Danny and Orlando had been placed under house arrest she had not been able to spend two seconds anywhere near Daniel and she was sick of it. It was unfair that Dumbledore confined them to their houses for their protection during their off hours. Always escorted back and forth. They haven’t been able to get a moment alone for weeks. Cecelia took in a deep breath, if there was one thing Orlando had taught her it was to keep emotions out of it. She knew she was getting closer to the Ravenclaw tower, she had followed Rose here for a week preparing this. As Cecelia came to the Ravenclaw common room’s doom she felt a rush of adrenaline she had done it.

“Cissy?”

Cecelia nearly jumped so high she almost hit the ceiling, R...

Rose year 6 avie1“It’s not going to work.”

Startled from her studying of the subject she’d recently found a new appreciation for, Rose dropped her potions book into her lap and looked up in genuine confusion. “What’s not going to work?” She tried to keep her voice somewhat pleasant as she focused on the older girl’s long plait braid rather than the unfriendly look on Kat’s face.

The brunette’s look settled into a smile of smug satisfaction. “I know what you’ve been doing with your little… paper. Trying to make everyone think that those two boys are harmless and funny. Well it’s not going to work this time.”

Truth be told, Rose had recently come to the same conclusion herself. Her stories had been a nice distraction, a way to focus on the good things at Hogwarts...

Tommy year 6 avie1Oh bloody hell, Tom thought to himself as he looked at the parchment tacked to the bulletin board.

All fifth years will be required to attend a short meeting with their Head of House during the second week of May, in which they will be given the opportunity to discuss their future careers. Time of individual appointments are listed below.

I had forgotten all about this. Well at least it will be quick and painless. Go in say, “I want to be a healer Professor.” Get a pamphlet and I’m done.

As Tommy stared at the parchment, he was shocked back to reality by the portrait hole swinging open, “When the bloody hell were you going to tell me?”

“What are you talking about?” Tom said trying to collect himself.

Cecilia suddenly looked very much like her mother, “First the whole bloody mess with Danny...
