Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 6: Lines Drawn and Lies Told 3.16

Danny year 6 avie1For the third time since entering his hidden study room, Danny double checked the table he had set. Gerti had helped him with the food, of course, but the rest of the arrangements he had seen to himself.

As the young man was turning the vase of flowers slightly to present a better view of the blooms to Rose, the doorway began to form with the bricks. Danny straightened his tie and turned to smile at Ambrosia.

The sight of Danny –tie, kilt, and all– after her long day of searching, hoping, waiting, and more searching, left Rose standing frozen in the doorway. She stared at him, barely able to take it all in, let alone find something intelligent to say.

Danny stepped around the table and offered his hand to Rose. “Happy birthday, hen.”

“Danny… I…” She took his hand, unaware that she was trem...

Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 6: Lines Drawn and Lies Told 3.15

Rose year 6 avie1Danny woke early on Tuesday, well before the sun had come up. On an ordinary day he would still be sprawled under his covers, but today wasn’t an ordinary day. It was Valentines Day, and more importantly it was Ambrosia Sheridan’s birthday. And Danny had a plan.

Quietly he dug into his trunk and pulled out a heart-shaped card. He had been working on this for the last two weeks, and it was time to get things started. He had considered sending Monkey in to deliver the first note, but decided against it. He wanted to do it all himself, and he knew exactly how he would accomplish it.

With a slight twisting shudder, the Ravenclaw’s form morphed into that of a squirrel...

Céilidh year 6 avie1A sour mood gripped the Gryffindor common room. Ever since Tom, Céilidh and Bill returned the night before, it seemed like a squad of dementors had taken up residence in the tower.

“Well the professors were right,” Percy Weasley bounced on the balls of his feet importantly, “you can’t just sneak around this castle in the dead of night and end up breaking an ancient mirror without getting some kind of punishment.” He pushed his horn rimmed glasses up his face.

“Give it a rest Perce,” Bill said as he prodded a pawn to move forward on the chessboard, “I’m sure they feel bad enough already and they don’t need you making him feel worse.”

“I understand they are your friends Bill,” Percy said professorially, “but have you forgotten that Oliver Wood is in the hospital wing right now because of th...

Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 6: Lines Drawn and Lies Told 3.9

Orlando year 6 avie1Though Hogwarts in February was certainly no isle of Crete, and there was–most likely–no large beast waiting at the end of the corridors to devour her, Rose couldn’t help but feel a tiny bit like Theseus as she worked on her latest assignment from Professor Qasim. Despite some lingering misgivings about the invasion of privacy, she tiny blonde had worked diligently to study a near-stranger’s life and connections.

Gilly Merrywater, a second year Ravenclaw, was a nice enough boy. He’d certainly felt no hesitation to talk with an older housemate about his family and friends while they’d studied near each other in the common room one night...

Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 6: Lines Drawn and Lies Told 3.7

Tommy year 6 avie1It was an uncharacteristically warm February day, as Lathan de Lancrét lounged like a king in front of his subjects. A blonde Slytherin seventh year girl lay giggling with her head lounging on his lap, as several other Slytherin boys, all younger, sat reverent around de Lancrét.

“And so I told the filthy little mudblood that if she didn’t keep her little mouth shut, I would use a permanent sticking charm on them.”

The assembled throng roared with laughter.

“I wish you would have done it anyway Lathan.” One of them said in between laughs.

“I thought about it,” He smiled, “But really, it would be a waste of spell energy. The stupid mudblood’s mouth flaps so much anyway, she would have broken the charm permanent or not.” This brought even more laughter.

“Hullo Lathan,” Tom sidled up to the ...

Rose year 6 avie1Forster was doing his usual mid morning rounds. Having a free period meant he could help patrol the halls, which he was more than happy to do. He flipped his wand off-handedly as he walked down the Defense Against the Dark Arts corridor.

It was quiet down the hall, with no mid morning classes, but that was usually when trouble could happen. As he walked down, he thought he heard the sounds of yelling toward Professor Qasim’s office. Curious as to what would be causing the all the yelling, The Hufflepuff prefect crept closer to the Professor’s door. The closer he got to the door, the louder he felt his footsteps got. He started to shuffle his feet, sliding along the stone more and more toward the door...

Hogwarts-Crest“I do apologize Albus,” the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher inclined his head toward Dumbledore, “I am needed in London all this week in order to give testimony in front of the Wizengamot in the trial of Thaddeus Morquette.”

“Ah yes,” the old wizard nodded gravely, “The so called last Death Eater, or at least if we were to believe the Daily Prophet.” A twinkle came to Dumbledore’s eyes as he smiled. “Which of course, I don’t.”

The African Wizard gave a low guttural laugh. “As you have made abundantly clear In our many, many years of friendship Albus. But my testimony is certainly needed and warranted to determine guilt or innocence, therefore I shall need to be there.”

“Of course, my dear Amen. Jurisprudence must always win the day...

Céilidh year 6 avie1Dawn broke over Gryffindor tower, and particularly the sixth-year girl’s dormitory, entirely too bright and early for at least one occupant. Ceilidh tossed about, trying in vain to go back to sleep. After another half hour of cursing the tiny ray of light that streamed through a chink in her bed curtains, finding her eyes no matter how she tried to avoid it, the redhead finally gave up the ghost and got out of bed.

Finally dressed, the redhead stomped down the stairs and into the common room.

“Morning.” Tom smiled as he looked over an open daily prophet at his girlfriend.

Céilidh grumbled as she slumped into one of the couches. “Coffee afore ah hex ye.”

Tom rolled his eyes and flicked his wand...

Rose year 6 avie1It wasn’t exactly normal homework. Winding her blonde curls into a knot at the top of her head, Rose stared down at the chart in front of her with a curious mixture of pride and discomfort. It was definitely up to her usual standards: detailed, neat, and slightly more comprehensive than the assignment had actually called for. But none of that could stop her from wanting to hide it from sight anytime one of her housemates passed by.

It was nearly time for another lesson with Professor Qasim. He’d been suitably impressed with the results of her first assignment. So impressed that he’d decided to, as he put it, stretch her a little. So she’d stretched. And now it was time to show him the proof.

With a sigh, the tiny Ravenclaw rolled up the parchment and set out for the Defense Against the D...

Danny year 6 avie1The view of the grounds from the Ravenclaw dorm window revealed a nice blanket of snow. The perfect snow for snowman building, thought Danny. He grabbed a heavy coat and the scarf Nicolette had knitted him and dashed down the stairs.

The common room was almost completely empty, save for Rose who had quill in hand and was busily scratching at a roll of parchment. Danny grinned as a thought entered his head.

“Hey Rose…”

“Yes, Danny?” The tiny blonde set her quill aside and looked up at him.

“What’re ye workin’ on?” he asked leaning against the couch. “Ah wis gauntae gae ootside an’ mebbes build a snowman or somethin’.”

Very deliberately laying her arm across her parchment, a teasing smile blossomed across Rose’s face. “Well… I’d hate to think of you all alone out in the cold…”

Danny twirled ...
