Agents of MAGIC – Hogwarts Year 6: The Ties That Bind 2.88

Tommy year 6 avie1Tom stared across the Great Hall at the Ravenclaw table. Liam Liddell sat with his back to Tommy talking to several other Ravenclaws. He knew that there was something about Liam that wasn’t right. Something just beyond his reach, but it was right there taunting him and it was maddening. It was all he could think about. Why did he just happen to be at the pub on New Year’s? Why did he just happen to be in Hogsmeade when they returned to school, especially when everyone else usually took the Hogwarts Express?

“Are you even listening?” Bill’s voice brought him back to reality.

“Huh, what?” Tommy shook his head clearing it.

“Where the hell were you for the past like,” Bill looked at his watch, “five bloody minutes.”

“Oh, mate I’m sorry.” Tom sighed as he rubbed his eyes...

Danny year 6 avie1Danny had been pacing back and forth in front of the Fat Lady for close to ten minutes, apparently trying to make up his mind about something. The woman in the portrait finally had enough.

“Young man, you are beginning to wear me out. What business do you have here?”

“Matters o’ th’ hert mah guid woman.” He flashed the portrait his best smile.”Ah’m sure ye hud mony a suitor in yer day, hen. Surely ye ken.”

As the picture blushed and giggled, Dan made up his mind. Looking back at the picture he said, “Blathering Blatherskite” The portrait swung open and Danny stepped through the entryway.

Tommy leaned back and rubbed his temple. He wasn’t sure how long he had been out in the common room studying, but from it’s empty state it, he had been there a long time...

Tommy year 6 avie1With school starting, it was harder and harder for Tom to keep an eye on his new target Liam Liddell as it always seemed that when the Gryffindor was on one side of the school, his prey was in the other. Not only that, but after a solid week of him expounding theories on why Liam seemed to be constantly following him and the rest of the gents, Céilidh and the boys were absolutely exhausted with hearing about it. Tom skulked down the hallways toward the library. The library was always quiet and a good place to think. As he pushed open the double doors and slung his bag off of his shoulder and into his hand, he heaved a heavy sigh as he tossed his bag on the nearest table and threw himself into a chair...

Laun year 6 avie“I wonder who’ll be teaching class? I haven’t heard any announcements…” Laun mused as he, Rose and Tom wandered to the dungeon.

“Dunno.” Tom shrugged “Did you hear anything about who would be head of Slytherin? Or even how the Professor is?”

“Professor Qasim is acting head of Slytherin,” Laun stifled a grin, “As for Professor Snape, I don’t know much but I hear that he is stable.”

Rose shifted the books in her arms so she could grab a curl of golden hair. “I know you need a head of your house. And we need a teacher… but… it’s so soon. Poor Professor Snape. He’ll be back as soon as he’s better, right?”

“I hope so!”

“Ma said he wis bad aff still.” Céilidh came from behind wrapping her arms around Tom’s waist. “Thay still havnae figured oot wha potion hit him.”

“Well I want to go on record a...

Danny year 6 avie1The night’s wind whipping across the surface of the Black Lake had cleared it of snow, leaving only a thick sheet of ice to glisten in the cold morning sun. It was Saturday and with no classes to deal with, Orlando and Dan had decided to throw together a bit of recreation for their friends, and were heading down early to set up the equipment.

Using their wands to clear a path from the castle to the lake, the two young men also carried a large open-topped chest between them. Non-flying broomsticks stuck out of the box at different angles. “Whaur d’ye kin?”

The Hufflepuff looked around, then pointed to an small cove on the edge of the lake. “Thare. Plenty o’ room, ice looks guid an’ thick.”

Walking down to the frozen cove, they set the box down and began to work...

Tommy year 6 avie1Nicolette Ainscough sighed and cast another spell on her throat, replacing the collar with a frilly ribbon. She had spent more time trying to hide the ugly bruises on her throat than she had
packing for their return to school. Living with the Sheridans had been a completely different world for the newly disowned girl. She had never imagined a family dynamic like the one she was now a part of. She had even grown fond of Halcyon, Rose’s new baby sister.

She looked towards the bathroom door that connected her new room to that of her best friend, Ambrosia Sheridan. How about this?” The other girl could hear the doubt in her voice without even seeing the look on her face.

“It’s fine,” the blonde replied without looking up...

Danny year 6 avie1A light snow fell on Hogsmeade dusting the only wholly wizarding village in England with white. As it was the last Saturday before the students of Hogwarts were to return to school, the streets were filled more than usual with students.

In front of the Three Broomsticks, there was a crack and a swirl of red and gold smoke as Tom apparated into view. He shivered slightly against the cold Scottish wind, as opened the door and strode into the warmth of the tavern.

Ordering himself a butterbeer, the Gryffindor pulled up a seat at the table nearest the fire and waited.

He hadn’t waited long before another crack sounded in the street. Through the window, Tom saw Danny appear across the street, about six feet off the ground, and drop unceremoniously into a large snow drift.

The Ravenclaw man cli...

Tommy year 6 avie1“Morning Marus.” Tommy petted the owl lazily as he stayed in bed, comfortable under the warm covers. “Anything interesting in the morning mail?”

Marus hooted happily and nipped at his hair, pulling it slightly.

“You know where the treats are go get them yourself.” Tom moaned as he started picking through the mail. “Transfiguration Today, a letter from Hogwarts.” He opened the letter and pulled out two pieces of parchment.

Tom pulled the first out which talked about new extra classes that were available to sixth years and if they were interested to write back to their heads of house immediately.

Tom took note of some of the classes on the list and set it down planning to write to Professor McGonagall later today and enroll in a few.

He pulled the second piece of parchment open...

Tommy year 6 avie1Shellycoat’s Tankard was warmer, as judged by the rosy cheeks and noses. And as the cups filled and emptied and refilled the music grew louder and brighter. And the tales told became all the more fantastic, crazy, and, in the case of Orlando MacFoozle, embarrassing. In this moment, it was his grandmother telling about one of times he had tried to put a saddle on their dog. This had all seemed more cute than embarrassing until she added the part about how he was “…Stark naked!”

Laughter roared around the bar. Even Orlando laughed, lifting his whiskey and taking a deep mouthful. His eyes rolled over to the raven haired girl beside him.

She bit her lip, biting back the laughter that reddened her cheeks as much as the wine. “Do all these stories end with you running about naked?”

The boy shrug...

Orlando year 6 avie1The foursome stepped into the street from the snow covered knoll known as Dungallan park that rose up from the waterfront. The street was dark between the intermittent lights that hung over the road that crawled up and wound around the bend of the sound. The rise of the earth opposite the street and the smattering of homes over it blocked off most of the city, leaving only a gentle glowing silhouette around the earthy darkness.

Still holding her hand, Orlando squeezed Nicollette’s fingers and gave a nod of the head up the road. “C’mon. It’s no far.”

The four of them strolled along the wet street, soft snowflakes dropping from the starry sky. With every step the lilting din of celebration grew from a faint sound to a rolling buzz...
