Start of the Year 3, it's been sometime so I will kind of reboot the quest and give some summaries for the new players too. It should feel welcoming for new players, do not shy away just because you missed the older threads. This quest and the character was created spontaneously in the first thread on /tg. You can check out all the previous adventures and stories from the pastebin link.For character informations, old threads and stuff:>http://pastebin.com/RR1jbGbc>SUMMARY - STORY SO FAR:Year is 1984. You are about to start your third year in Hogwarts. Lord Voldemort was "killed" by the Boy Who Lived three years ago. You are John Apise, only child of a rich pureblood family. You love potions, herbology and magical beasts. You are a Ravenclaw and you have a magical pet bee called Cordy.>In Year 1You started Hogwarts and joined Ravenclaw. You made some really good friends and concentrated on your studies. Your mother used to play in the Slytherin Quidditch Team and influenced you to join sports. You played as the Seeker in the Ravenclaw Quidditch team but you couldn't win the Quidditch cup. Your house on the other hand won the House Cup, which is not a small feat at all. You stopped the half vampire DADA professor at the end of the year and saved your friends. You also see a Goblin wandering around the castle one night but that turns out to be a dead end.
>In Year 2 (extended summary)Before the school year started, you went to Bordeaux, France with your dad and met with the new DADA professor there, then you attended a Quidditch friendly match with your friend Tim but the match was disrupted by the attack of Death Eater remnants and you duelled with one of them briefly before he escaped, then you started the second year in Hogwarts and managed to get in the Quidditch team again as the Seeker, you joined the duelling club and met some new friends. Your aunt was put on trial for being a death eater and was found innocent yet the media kept attacking your family and you had some awkward times. At the end of the year it turns out a few extremist death eaters started a revenge campaign against the Ministry and the "collaborators". They attack your aunt but they your mother defeats them. Then it turns out the Death Eater you duelled at the start of the year managed to took some of Tim's hair and used a polyjuice potion to look like him. The death eater reveals himself and attacks the DADA professor who used to be a Judge and found your aunt innocent on the trial. The death eater reveals that your aunt was indeed a death eater and the if the professor found her innocent that must mean that she become a traitor to the cause and gave vital information in exchange. The Goblin from the Year 1 shows up in the middle of the chaotic scene and claims he retrieved "his ancestral Ring" back from Hogwarts and runs away. Then the Death Eater kills the Professor, yet at the last minute your mother shows up, she flew to Hogwarts secretly after the attack on your aunt, and she kills the Death Eater during the duel. She also reveals that your aunt was found innocent not because she sold Voldemort's secrets to the Judges but because your mother actually used Imperius curse on the now killed Professor during the trial and orchestrated the whole thing. She escapes before the other Professors come to the scene and you and your friends Glenn and Rachel who witnessed the whole thing decide to keep this as a secret and tell everyone only that Death Eater and the Professor killed each other. In the end you decide to go home and finish your second year abruptly. The headmaster understands and you leave Hogwarts a few weeks before the year ends. You need some time alone at home before the third year.>I think I can get used to the /qst's slower tempo and get the "reboot" of this quest going here now. Feel free to read the summaries and also check the older quests or at least the pastebin if you want. I will give explanations and expositions every time someone appears so that the new players will be able to catch up quickly. I'll keep this first thread going a bit slower though so the people can come and new people can read.>Follow us @JVApiseQuest
It's been three months since you left Hogwarts and came back home. It was the most boring and depressing summer you ever had in your life. Shortly after the events of the last year, your mother confessed everything to your father. She said that she had to use the Imperius on the judge so that her sister, your aunt, Luisa would be found innocent. She says that Luisa wasn't "really" a death eater or anything, she just stupid and got over in her head. Your mom had to protect her. Although your father has always been the most quiet and understanding man you ever known in your life, and even now he seems that he understands what she did and why she did it, you have never seen him so angry before. Your mother, who has always been cool and proud seems quite nervous and broken now. She seems a bit shaken by the events. Probably not because she had to kill someone but because her son was in mortal danger because of her old actions.After an extensive arguing with your father, she says she needs to leave for a while and he agrees. She hugged you tight and kissed you many times before saying good bye. She has been gone for three months now. 1/2
Don't forget that John's potion-making skills have been recognized by Professor Snape as being competent.We work very hard to excel in his class.
Welp, time to catch up on past threads.
>>1340010She sent you some letters during the summer. She went to stay with her sister Luisa. Your father says it was necessary because your mom had to set up a new place for your aunt and hide her since she might be in danger from the remaining Death Eaters.Your friends also sent you some letters during the summer. Most of your letters came from Glenn. He was also a bit shaken by the events. He wrote to you that he hadn't had any kind of prophecies ever since. Glenn had the Gift of Sight and sometimes "predicts" the future in weird prophecies.Anya also wrote to you a few times but she says that her parents are quite involved in something with miners or protests or something. You don't quite understand what is she talking about but since her parents are Muggles you don't really care much about it. She says she misses you and looks forward to seeing you again.You also received a curious letter from your clumsy friend Valdis, who invites you to a dinner at his house. Valdis' great great great grandfather was a Headmaster in Hogwarts and he says that the new DADA professor would also be attending to the dinner. Other than you and Glenn, another student called Rachel was also with you that night and promised to keep your mom's secret. You haven't heard anything from her though.You have spend your summer mostly studying to take your head off from things and also practiced some Quidditch and flying while your Finnish Pirkka Bee Cordelia accompanied you.>You can choose more than one>Spend your days studying Potions [Fav.

We'll select two classes from these:>Arithmancy>Muggle Studies>Divination>Ancient Runes>Care of Magical CreaturesMagical Creatures should be a given to John so will need to select the second one.We have a big Artihmancy friend, the french girl Astrid from Beauxbeautons.Glenn has the Gift for the Divination. Anya's parents are Muggles so she can be a lot of help for Muggle Studies. John never really showed any interest at these subjects though. Should be interesting to choose.
>>1340062Wow don't kill me but I just realized he holds a Jules Verne in this picture hahah wow so good.
>>1340048> practice quidditch> reading novels> write positive response to Valdis> spend time with daddy> don't think about how mum used an unforgivable and her and her sister are probably bonding by going muggle hunting right nowGenerally stuff that we won't be able to do as much at school.Do we have any ambitions for after we graduate that we should keep in mind when picking electives?
>>1340062>Muggle Studies>Care of Magical Creatures
>>1340131>Do we have any ambitions for after we graduate that we should keep in mind when picking electives?I think becoming a Potion Master was mentioned a few times.
muggle studies is literally useless though
>>1340062> care of magical creatures> ancient runesThe later because wards are usefulWhat is arithmancy used for?

>>1340050>>1340131>>1340337You spend your days mostly studying your favorite subject of Potions. You practice brewing some of the potions you know such as the Wiggenweld Potion and the Shrinking Solution. Apart from studying potions you also spend some time practicing your Quidditch skills. You would like to finally get the Quidditch cup this year. After you left before watching the final game you learned from your friends that Slytherin won the Quidditch Cup. At least Ravenclaw won the House Cup again. You also finish a few novels during your free time in summer. It feels good to forget about the world for a few hours and bury yourself in a good book. After each book you finish you write to Anya to talk about it. She is quite the bookworm. You also watch a big celestial event with your dad one night. Your family manor is quite far away from any of the big Muggle cities and also a bit high in elevation. You watch as a group of Sami Shamans flying from the North Pole passes your region. Your dad says there is some sort of meeting in Britain that many foreign wizards and magicians also attend. The shamans fly towards the sky and leave an effect like northern lights on the sky. It is quite beautiful. As you look at the sky you remember of your friend Valdis' invitation. Valdis really likes astronomy and he is the founder of the Astronomy club. You decide to write a letter to him saying you will attend to his dinner. The dinner will take place next week. In the meantime you receive a letter from Tim asking which elective you will select this year as he wants to be in the same class as you. You think hard about it...>Magical Creatures chosen.>Ancient Runes got 3 votes. Most likely we choose it?>Write to Tim that you will select Magical Creatures and Ancient Runes>Other
>>1340437>>Write to Tim that you will select Magical Creatures and Ancient Runes

>>1340506>>Skip to Dinner at Valdis'
>On a side note, how is the Fantastic Beasts movie? I missed it when it was in the cinemas but downloaded it now to get myself some hype for the quest. I hope it will give me some inspirations as well.
>>1340525It was decent enough, i would like to see more of newts adventures, i feel he was the best part of the movie.
>>1340506>Skip to Dinner at Valdis'
>>1340515>>1340518>>1340550The time comes for Valdis' dinner. You go together with your father. Valdis doesn't live too far away and you see a large cart with two strong and majestic gryphons waiting for you outside of your house."What do you think?" your father Edward asks with a playful smile. You LOVE it. Edward must have planned this as a gesture to cheer you up since you love magical beasts and creatures. Both of you sit in the cart and the beasts take off after a little bit of running on the ground. "Where did you get them?" you ask. Your father just smiles. He is a man of means."I thought we can enjoy this nice summer weather" he says putting an arm on your shoulder. As the sun sets, the summer breeze licks your hair and you feel happy to be alive. 1/2
>>1340586Fuckin best dad ever
>>1340586>you feel happy to be aliveI've got a bad feeling about this.
>>1340586After almost an hour of flying you see a dark point in the middle of a sea of grass down on the ground. The gryphons slowly start to descend and the dark point becomes larger and larger and very taller. It's an old and large tower with many spires and round rooms. As you come closer you see a big balcony with many, many astronomy equipment looking towards the sky. The cart lands and your friend Valdis along with presumably his father greets you. It feels very nice to see a friend. Even though you are not very close with Valdis, you like him and think of him as a friend. Valdis most of the time cost Ravenclaw a lot of points but he has some redeeming qualities such as his passion for astronomy and a keen interest for social events.After a bit of welcoming chat, both of your fathers stay in the large living room while Valdis takes you upstairs to show you his room. On the way to his room you see a portrait. An old man looks at you and then winks. "Nice to see you Mr. Apise!" the man in the painting says. You wave back and as you are about to speak, Valdis drags you to the stairs. "Old man Vindictus kept talking about you after the...well after..you know. Nothing bad of course, I think he likes you. I think he didn't like Rachel much though, I would say she is all right...anyway, Oh you know I can show you some of his famous potions stuff..." Vindictus Viridian was one of the old Headmasters of Hogwarts and a very famous Potioneer, and you had the chance to speak with his portrait after the Death Eater attack when you were in the Headmaster's room.>Yeah...well...I don't want to talk about that stuff.>Really? So cool! A headmaster talks about me! >Oh yeah, I guess he saw lot of stuff that night. Do you want to talk about it?>Ooo! Can I see his potions stuff? >Wait, you know Rachel?
>>1340671>>Ooo! Can I see his potions stuff?GRINGOTT I LOVE YOU YOU CRAZY BASTARD! WELCOME BACK!
>>1340671>Ooo! Can I see his potions stuff?
>>1340671>Ooo! Can I see his potions stuff? >Wait, you know Rachel?
>>1340671>>Ooo! Can I see his potions stuff? >>Wait, you know Rachel?
>>1340671>>Ooo! Can I see his potions stuff?
>>1340679>>1340683>>1340691>>1340703>>1340704"Ooo! Can I see his potions stuff?" you ask with excitement. Valdis laughs. "Yeah sure! I know you want to be the next Snape... come!" after going up one stair now he takes you down from another one. This tower is almost as confusing as Hogwarts stairs. "Oh and by the way how do you know Rachel?" you ask curiously. "What do you mean?" Valdis counters. "Did you forget how she stupified me in the DADA course last year when we were paired? That girl is crazy... Anyway she should be here soon." As you look confused he laughs again. "Oh right! I forgot to tell you, Rachel Rosenfeld is also coming for the dinner. It turns out her dad is a friend of mine. They were both in some club or class or something I forgot...Ahh here we are."He opens a very old looking big door and it opens with an eerie creak. "We don't really use this room much..." Inside is full of weird bottles and flasks of all sizes. It's shelf after shelf vials and glasses and jars. This looks like a potioneer's dream room. You are amazed. "Sadly there aren't much stuff left... It's been like 400 years since he died so nothing you can use in a potion or brew or anything... But I guess these old flasks might be cool... I can give you one or two if you want, I'm sure dad wouldn't mind." Valdis says.You thank Valdis and start looking for some interesting pieces to take with you. In the meantime you talk about...>So...Slytherin won the Quidditch eh?>So...about that night...I just felt like going back home...>Why did you say Vindictus doesn't like Rachel?>Did you talk with any other people from Hogwarts during the summer?>Did you decide on what to choose for the Electives?>Are you going to form the Astronomy club again? Sorry for bailing out last year.>Who do you think is the coolest girl in our year?>Do you know who is the new DADA professor and when is he coming tonight?>Do you think Vindictus would have some old potion book around here somewhere?>Other
>>1340769>>So...Slytherin won the Quidditch eh?>Did you decide on what to choose for the Electives?
>>1340769>Do you think Vindictus would have some old potion book around here somewhere?>So...about that night...I just felt like going back home...>So...Slytherin won the Quidditch eh?

>>1340769>>Do you think Vindictus would have some old potion book around here somewhere?>Did you decide on what to choose for the Electives?
>>1340786>>1340787>>1340794>>1340800"By the way did you decide on what to choose for the elective classes?" you ask. "Yeah. I will get Magical Creatures and Divination." He then starts to explain how Astronomy is connected with Divination and something about how starts move and moons collide blablabla, then you intervene to ask if Vindictus would have left some old book here somewhere as you put some really strange looking vials to your bag. Valdis shrugs and says, "No, sorry. Any book, recipe or anything really useful was donated to Hogwarts library. I think that flask is something special though look," He points to a symbol on the flask. "Vindictus marked some of the bottles and vials with this symbol. I think they are either better to brew certain kinds of potions or have some other quality to them..." Just as you two were talking a strange bell sound echoes in the tower. "Oh! That's time for dinner. I guess everyone is here now." Valdis grabs you again and tries to run quickly, you almost drop and break a bottle but thankfully you were quick enough to catch it. You two run down and up and down again the stairs and come to a big room with a very large dinner table in the middle of it. The room is lit be flying candles and with strange rugs on the walls. It kind of reminds you of Hogwarts. 1/2
>>1340679Thanks it's good to be back!
>>1340849You take a seat next to your father and Valdis sits across you. Next to him sits a very very old man. He is almost completely bald, has a mighty beard and moustache and a big belly. You see Rachel with her father coming in the room. Her Father sits two seats from you and Rachel sits next to him, which puts her next to you. She seems a bit shy and avoids your eye contact. Valdis leans on the table and whispers you, pointing at the old man next to him. "New professor!" >Introduce yourself to the new DADA professor>Don't attract attention and wait for your food>Try to chat with Valdis>Try to talk to Rachel casually>Ask Rachel what is going on in an offended tone
>>1340891>>Try to talk to Rachel casually
>>1340891>Try to talk to Rachel casually

Shit have i really lost all the plot of the second year? Well i will read it later for now i think i will join you guys.
>>1340891>Introduce yourself to the new DADA professor>Try to talk to Rachel casually
>>1340898>>1340901>>1340902>>1340911You lean on and try to talk to Rachel casually. "Hey Rachel! How have you been? How was your summer?" She is wearing her silver snake necklace around her neck with her favorite emerald green hairband tying up her blonde hair. She seems surprised a bit. "Hi John!... Thanks... It was all right..." she says in a shy way.A few minutes later she adds, "Well... I thought... I thought you wouldn't want to talk to me after what I tried to do and after finding out what I am." Her green eyes look down on the table.>What? Why would I do that? [Complete Surprise]>It's not a bad thing to be a Parseltongue. I think it's super cool! >I guess some of them can be good... It's okay... [Suspicious]>You didn't know that Chamber of Secrets was an evil place... Otherwise you wouldn't try to find it... It's okay... >I don't care about what you said or trying to do, you were there with me that night and I trust you as my friend. [Compassionate]>Yeah, talking to snakes and telling me you want to find Slytherin's hidden evil rooms. I think you are a bit crazy... [Dislike]>I think your ability is very cool and I think it's also cool to be curious about the hidden stuff in Hogwarts. Why would I not talk to you, I think you are really cool!>We have a lot of years together in Hogwarts so it's not practical to stop talking with someone... [Cold]
>>1341015>What? Why would I do that? [Complete Surprise]
>>1341015>>What? Why would I do that? [Complete Surprise]>>I don't care about what you said or trying to do, you were there with me that night and I trust you as my friend.

>>1341018>>1341048>>1341051>>1341067>>1341068You are taken aback. "What? Why would I do that?" You ask in complete surprise. "When people..." she says quietly, "When people see what I can do, they act differently... they stop talking to me...And...and I told you I was trying to find the Chamber of Secrets... I told you how I thought I was the Chosen one... You must think I am crazy or evil or worse..." She seems upset. >That's nonsense! You were just curious.>I think being a Parseltongue is very cool!>Is this why you never wrote to me this summer?>Well... there are a few strange things but... we fought together so it's okay.>I don't care about any of that you are my friend.>Other
>>1341085>Well... there are a few strange things but... we fought together so it's okay.But wait>Is this why you never wrote to me this summer?

>>1341091>>1341142>>1341126>>1341096"Is this why you never wrote to me this summer?" you ask. She nods. "I didn't know what you thought about me...""I think it's cool to be a Parseltongue and you are my friend no matter what after what we've been through." She smiles. 1/2>Gonna post a bit slower now until I am done with some of the stuff I need to take care of. Let's see how this will go with /qst tempo of more than one day running quests.
>>1341181"Did you select your electives?" She asks. You nod and reply. "What about you?" you ask."I think I will get Ancient Runes for sure." she says. "But I am not sure about the second one..." She plays with a bracelet on her arm, with the inscription "Slytherin Quidditch Team - Champions"Just as you two were talking, Valdis' dad stands up and starts giving a speech. He welcomes everyone and then gets to introducing the new DADA professor, Henry Noctua. Professor Noctua, tries to stand up fighting with his own belly, gives a small bow and sits back again. You wonder how long he will stay as the DADA professor. Hopefully longer than the first two. >Continue talking with Rachel>Concentrate on the food>Talk to Valdis>Try to meet new people>Try to meet with Professor Noctua>Other
>>1341232>Talk to ValdisSo i know this french girl who really like divination stuff want to meet her?
>>1341232>>Continue talking with Rachel
>>1341241She likes Arithmancy
>>1341277Different method but does the same thing really. I bet she would wet her panties if she heard Valdis talking about divination and astrology.
>>1341232>Try to meet with Professor Noctua
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?ARE YOU FUCKING BACK?WHAT IS THIS?HOLY SHIT! BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSbees bees bees.Goodnight my nigger.
...This is back..AND I MISSED IT!>Paseltongue thingYou know, as pointed out in Harry Potter and the Methods of RationalitySNAKES ARE SENTIENT?...I wonder if we can learned to speak Bee?
>>1341244>>1341262You continue to talk with Rachel. She starts telling you about her summer. She went to a hiking trip with her parents in the mountains and saw a tribe of mountain trolls. She says that her father said they are probably not evil but it's best not to anger them. "We traded some of our food and they give us a very strong drink. Kind of a beer I guess. Father liked it." Troll brewed beer sounds interesting."Do you keep contact with others during the summer?" she asks. You talk mostly with your close friends from Ravenclaw. You didn't talk much to your fiery Gryffindor friend Alba though. Rachel says she likes almost everyone in her class but one guy is starting to annoy him. "It's David. This guy is such a weasel." You know David. It was one of the first people you met in Hogwarts. David has a strange sheep follower mentality and always tries to hangout with purebloods. You think it's best to avoid talking about your friend Alba too ever since that fight between Slytherins and Gryffindors in Year 1 it has been a touchy subject."So looks like we will have Ancient Runes together. What do you hope to learn in this class? I hope it's not just some boring book reading course..." >I hope so too. Reading is so boring. I want to get some action. [Lie]>I want to learn about old spell wards and secret runes. I think it will be interesting even to read about them.>Haha, actually I would prefer a quiet class of reading ancient spells.>I want to learn some powerful defense spells and wards so I can protect myself against dangers. [Obsessing over the Death Eater event]>Other
>>1341911>I want to learn some powerful defense spells and wards so I can protect myself against dangers. [Obsessing over the Death Eater event]John is a trouble magnet, he needs to be able to defend himself and his friends.

>>1341911>>I want to learn about old spell wards and secret runes. I think it will be interesting even to read about them.
>>1342240>Vindictus marked some of the bottles and vials with this symbol.Oh hey. Bottle has a rune on it. Fancy that.
>>1341932>>1341999>>1342228>>1342240"I want to learn some powerful defense spells and wards so I can protect myself against dangers." Rachel smiles. "First you defeated that crazy vampire lady... and now this death eater. You seem to have a talent for trouble John!" After a little bit more chat, the dinner is over and the dessert is served. The new professor across the table finally looks at you and Rachel and starts to have a conversation. "I am very much getting to know all of you young wizards and witches. Mr. Apise, " he nods to you, "Ms. Rosenfeld" and nods to Rachel. "I heard you had some troubling problems with the Defence Against the Dark Arts teachers in these past two years. I hope you haven't grown a dislike for this class...">Of course not sir, I enjoy this class very much.>It is a necessary part of our education, sir, we must learn these spells.>Dislike? No! It's actually one of my favorite subjects!>Not really a dislike but it just doesn't interest me much... I am more of a potions student.>Well...kind of. I don't really like this class very much.
>>1342259>>Of course not sir, I enjoy this class very much.
>>1342259>>Not really a dislike but it just doesn't interest me much... I am more of a potions student.
>>1342259>It is a necessary part of our education, sir, we must learn these spells."But I won't pretend that these last few teachers have not been able to help cultivate a love for it. I look forward to learning from a new Professor though."
>>1342259>Of course not sir, I enjoy this class very much.
>>1342259Make it more then one year sir, and you'll be the best one we've had.

Rachel also quickly nods and adds, "In fact this is one of my favorite classes professor! We had so much fun at the Duelling Club last year." Professor gives you a half smile and nods. "That is good to hear children..." "Professor, what were you doing before you decided to join us in Hogwarts?" you ask politely.The professor laughs and rubs his belly in a funny way. "Well my boy that is an excellent question. For thirty years or so I was the head of the Department of International Magical Cooperation in the Ministry of Magic. When I finally decided to retire and let the world do whatever they want without me....Dumbledore pulled me back to Hogwarts... Well I always loved foreign affairs and I have a keen interest of travelling but Hogwarts always had a special place in my heart. When Dumbledore kindly asks you for your help to clean the mess in Hogwarts you simply cannot say no!...

>>1342370>>Try to chat with Vindictus' Portrait
>>1342381>>1342405>>1342523You approach the old portrait after dinner and try to talk to it. The old man in the portrait is sleeping so you try to wake him up hoping he wouldn't mind. Vindictus Viridian slowly yawns and opens his eyes. "Oh is that you my boy?" He stands up, wanders around his room in the portrait and sits back down again. "Yes, what is it you wish to discuss?"Choose one,>Talk to him about the Death Eater's attack and afterwards, try to learn what Headmaster thought of all that.>Talk to him about Valdis and why he said that Vindictus would dislike Rachel?>Talk to him about potions and ask him what does the rune on his flasks mean?

>>1342674>>1342804You start asking him questions about potions and you ask him what does the rune on some of his flasks mean."Well... let me see that." he says. You take out one of the flasks you took earlier and show it to him. "Ah...Yes... That just means that these flasks were made using a special kind of glass. There are traces of meteorite in this glass. I have studied this kind of flasks and making of glass for years and I have found that some of the potions brewed with these kind of flasks have superior quality to normal ones. In fact some potions can only be brewed with one of these." You start to get excited. "Like what?"He laughs. "Even if I told you, you will never be able to brew that something like that child. For example the Arcanusclipeus Elixir. It's a very complex potion that very well can save your life... but I am afraid that is forbidden to brew these days since it might also kill you if you mess up the preparations...I don't remember all the recipes anyway. I left them all to you, next generations in my books..." With that he prepares to go to sleep again.You can do one last thing before leaving the Viridian Tower.>Spend more time with Valdis>Spend more time with Rachel>Meet someone new>Talk more to the new Professor>Skip to going back home>Other

Fucking Valdis. I want all those house points back now.
>>1342848>>1342860>>1343042Before leaving you decide to speak more with Rachel and catch up. "Do you think we will have another Duelling Club this year?" she asks you. You remember she was one of the best in the club. You think she might be one of the top students in your year in terms of magical combat. You just shrug and say you don't know.She whispers you quietly, leaning on close to you, the emerald eyes of the silver snake on her necklace shines for a brief moment as she moves and light reflects on them. "Is your mom okay? Why didn't she come?" she asks. >Evade the question with a simple "Yes she is okay" and change the subject to Quidditch.>Evade the question with a simple "Yes she is okay" and change the subject to other clubs that you are a member of in Hogwarts.>Tell her that she left the house after a big fight with your dad and she is okay but you don't know when she will return.>Tell her that she went to hide your aunt in somewhere safe and will come back soon.>Tell her that she is okay but you don't want to talk about it and it's a secret.>Other

>>1343132>Tell her that she is okay but you don't want to talk about it and it's a secret.
>>1343139>>1343188You tell her that she is okay but you don't really want to talk about it and that this is all a secret.She nods and says she understands. She respects your wish to not talk about it. Then suddenly she tells you that her mother has died a few years ago when she was little. She says it was an accident and her voice drifts away. You decide not to ask about it.1/2
>>1343258Finally you leave and head back home with your father. This time it feels a bit more chilly since it's almost midnight and you wrap your cloak around you on the way back home while flying over the small ponds and forests. You talk with your father about the new professor and how his third year was in Hogwarts. He tells you a funny story about how he won some last minute points and won the House Cup for Hufflepuff. Sometimes you wonder if anything in your life would have been different if you were in Hufflepuff. Then you think about your friends. You are really glad to have them. You only know one girl from Hufflepuff, named Mary. She was in the book club with you. She is okay but you cannot imagine a life without your Ravenclaw buddies in Hogwarts. Your father asks you about Rachel. He says you two seemed close and asks if she is one of your best friends. You say she is a close friend but your best friends are Anya and Glenn. "What about that Gryffindor girl? She still attacks other students over Quidditch?" your dad asks, meaning your friend from Spain, Alba. You just shrug and laugh.When you reach home you say good night to your father and head to your room. You inspect the special vials you took from Vindictus' old collection and dream of brewing special potions that will make you one of the most accomplished Potioneers in the history...and you slowly drift away to sleep.>We have one more timeslot we can spend on something.

>>1343576>>1343698You decide to write a letter to your friend Astrid and ask her how is she doing, how is her school and how did she spent her summer holiday. You tell her that you miss her and how fun it was when she visited you at your place last Christmas. You are looking forward to seeing her again.You finish the letter and get one of the owls in your household to send it. >Gained study time in Flying, Potions and Social this summer
For the last year's completion you have gained>1 Attribute PointYou can spend it on one of the four attributes>Power>Spirit>Finesse>IntelligenceYou have also gained 1 point in the Flying skill.
>>1343818>Finesse let's get some charisma up in here!
There are 4 different attributes, Finesse, Intelligence, Spirit, and Power. Finesse is the reflection of a character's fine motor skills and dexterousness. Intelligence is the measure of a character's smarts, depth of knowledge and book learning. Spirit represents a character's willpower, presence and charm.Power is a character's strength, their spell's power, strength of mind and body.Intelligence can be used to decrease the amount of time it takes to research and study, as well as giving bonuses to tests.Spirit grants perks. For every one point of Spirit a character gets one perk. Power is used as a form of health pool. The maximum number of wounds your character can take is determined by your Power.
To be honest I think Finesse (Dexterity) is kind of useless for John but up to you guys.
>>1343893I thought it would make us more charismatic. But if the GM themself says it's not useful for the main, then I'll change my vote. >Intelligence. Since that's important to me too. But then again, if you do go with Finesse because everyone voted for it, consider making it useful even though you didn't plan on it. Since so many players were interested in it. Finesse is fine motor skills, delicacy, smoothness, that sort of thing sure, but it can also make people somehow more attractive/charismatic, don't you think? It's also a neat characteristic.
>>1343908Because mechanically it only gives you +1 for defense and melee attacks like punching someone. Now I checked it also adds +1 for brewing checks so not so bad actually.
>>1343893i change to intelligence then op, should have put dexterity instead of finesse
>>1343908>>1343927What about spellcasting speeds because of the finesse of the wand motions and stuff?
>>1343908So yeah I take it back actually it's good with Finesse. Sorry a bit sleepy and didn't check the rulebook for some time.
>>1343936Okay cool, no worries about being sleepy :) Thanks for running. It's appreciated.
>>1343934If you have higher Finesse you get to start first in the combat round. Also the sheet is here: >>1340048
>>1343818>FinesseBecause it's good for potion brewing and spell casting, and anyone who says it isn't obviously didn't read the rulebook.
Spirit also allows you to spend that much gold to shorten the studying hours. I usually add the Spirit bonus to your studying hours so you learn stuff faster. So it's a nice bonus that people might not realize. You also get a Perk when you get a Spirit point.Intelligence also adds x10 shortening to study hours and useful for spell casting and brewing. Finesse is faster in combat and useful for brewing again.Power is your Health + useful for spellcasting.
>>1343961Yeah I didn't really read it in a long time.Okay, Finesse it is then. Which puts your Potion Prep. Skill up to 10 and Brewing Skill up to 9.>Want to do one last thing before leaving home?>Skip to last day at home
>>1343988>Want to do one last thing before leaving home?Ask dad if we can write a letter to mom, or if it's still too dangerous for her.

>>1343988>Ask if we can write a letter to mom.
Gotta go to bed, thanks for the game OP, and everyone for playing too :D
It is the last day of summer. You will be heading out to Hogwarts soon. You considered writing a letter to your mom but your dad said it probably wouldn't be necessary. And he was right. Just as you are getting out of the house and prepare to leave you see your mom approaching in the sky. She is flying on one of her old broomsticks and she is fast. She lands at the gardens of your house and runs towards you. She hugs you in tight embrace. "My love!" she says. "I couldn't be away on your day to school." You are really happy to see your mom. Your dad also smiles. They also exchange a short hug. "Finally your aunt is in a safe location and she will return to her normal life soon. I think we are not in any kind of danger." Your mom says. You feel glad. Your parents take you together to the train station. On the way you feel like there is a strange coldness in their talks but you pay it no mind. You arrive at the train and say your final goodbyes to your parents. Your mom tells you to becareful and write to her any time you want. You hug them one last time and enter the train.You are a bit early and not many students are here yet. There are a few empty rooms and you also see a few people you know. You think you hear Alba in one of the compartments. You also see your Quidditch captain Anthony. He is starting his final year in Hogwarts. You feel something bad in your stomach when you see him as you left the school before the final match for your team. There were a lot of points difference and you probably wouldn't be the champions anyway but still... you feel like you let him and your team down. You also saw some of your fellow Ravenclaws like Juliette, Alice and Bryan at the back of the train.You take a few steps and decide where to sit.>Sit in one of the empty compartments and wait for your friends to arrive.>Sit in one of the half-empty compartments with random people.>Sit in the compartment of Anthony>Sit in the compartment where you think you heard Alba was sitting>Sit with the fellow Ravenclaws Juliette, Alice and Bryan

>>1344898>>Sit in the compartment where you think you heard Alba was sittingBe nice to catch up with the little spaniard.
>>1344901Also some reminder for old and new players about these Ravenclaw characters.>Juliette: brunette, brown eyes, good at Transfigurations, wants to become a Journalist. She was the one interviewed you once for the Hogwarts school magazine and got you in some paparazzi trouble.>Alice: petite, short blonde hair, wants to become a Dragonologist. You suspect she has something going on with Tim.>Bryan: he is a good guy, mostly quiet. Wants to be an Auror but you didn't really spend much time with him.
>>1344943> Sit with fellow Ravenclaws, get to know Bryan better.
>>1344898>Sit in one of the empty compartments and wait for your friends to arrive.
>>1344901>>1344903>>1344956>>1344987You decide to sit with your fellow Ravenclaw classmates. You walk towards their compartment and slide the heavy door. As soon as you enter your three friends look up to you and smile. "John!" Juliette runs up to you and gives you a hug. "We missed you man!" says Bryan. Alice pats down on the seat "Come sit with us!" You sit next to them and start to catch up. They tell you all about their summer and Bryan asks you how do you feel. You say you are okay and ready to go back to normal. "I was just... I was just a little shaken I guess. Now I am fine." Alice says she never guessed you would be a type to get affected like this from that event. Bryan cuts her short. "Many wizards in the world face with dark threats and it is a very dangerous and traumatic thing to fight for you life, Alice. John had all the right to get some rest and clear his head." You appreciate Bryan's statement. "I am very impressed with your skills, John. I hope I can be also like you when I become an Auror. It's a big feat to face a Death Eater and survive..." he continues."Don't forget that Vampire Professor either!" Juliette adds.You start to feel better already. Staying at home for months was so boring. Hogwarts is where you thrive."Oh John...by the way....what are you going to do now that you are out of the Quidditch team?" Juliette asks.>"Wait, what? Who says I am out?">"I guess it's understandable. I was starting to get bored with it anyways" [Lie]>I guessed that would happen... I guess I just need to concentrate on my classes now...>I didn't want this to happen. I will try to talk with Anthony and explain myself to him..hopefully I'll stay in the team.>Other
>>1345004>I guessed that would happen... I guess I just need to concentrate on my classes now...It isn't like Ravenclaw matters in quidditch.
>>1345004>>I guessed that would happen... I guess I just need to concentrate on my classes now...
>>1345004>I guessed that would happen... I guess I just need to concentrate on my classes now...
>>1345004>I didn't want this to happen. I will try to talk with Anthony and explain myself to him..hopefully I'll stay in the team.
>>1345010We were mostly on the Quidditch because our mom was a on it to. It was, mostly, a way to bound with her.
>>1345025Joan Apise, our mom, was one of the finest Beaters in the Slytherin history.
>>1345034Lotta mileage for jokes about being a female beater.I also feel there's something about being a snake beater or something of the like.
>>1345004>I guessed that would happen... I guess I just need to concentrate on my classes now...Flying seems like a good hobby to keep in our back pocket but not having our schedule be eaten up by the team opens up some opportunities
>>1345034I still can't figure out how dad manage to marry our mom. They seem so...different.
>>1345043purebloods generally don't marry for love.
>>1345042Not to mention, the times we were recovering in the infarmary last year, could have being used in studying potions or practicing spells.Which after what happend last year we should kinda focus. John was just a normal wizard kid and then for two years he had to fight for his life i know John is the best but that kind of happenings can really mess with some peopled.
>>1345045Fact. Guess the same might happend to us.
>>1345004Wait, why are we off of the team?
>>1345073We left last year, a few weeks before the end of the year. In doing so we missed some quidditch matches, Ravenclaw wouldn't have won anyway but nonetheless.
>>1345010>>1345012>>1345022>>1345042"Well...I guessed that would happen. At least I can concentrate more on my classes now." you say with a hopeful smile. You also hope your mom wouldn't be disappointed with you. "There was actually a big arguement." Bryan says. "When captain Anthony decided to have Tim play as te seeker. The 6th Grader Robert, you know that guy you beat in the Seeker tryouts, threw a tantrum. In the end Anthony was very pissed off." You will at least probably not miss the Quidditch dramas. You also did had a kind of serious accident too last year while playing. This might be a good time to focus on classes and finally spend a quiet year."Did you guys decided on your electives?" Alice asks. "I will take Magical Creatures and Ancient Runes." You laugh and say you will also select those two. Bryan says he will do the same. Only Juliette says she will select Divination and Muggle Studies. "I researched a lot on how Muggles print magazines and report news. I want to learn more about Muggle journalism." It seems a rather strange interest to you but each to her own you guess.1/2
>>1345073>>1345076You missed the last match. Juliette says you are out but you actually haven't talked to Anthony about it and he didn't say it officially.
>>1345087>>1345076I'd say considering what happened we should be allowed to rejoin if we showed up to practice/tryouts.
>>1345089Quidditch is sort of a waste of time though, unless you actually plan on doing it after hogwarts.
>>1345089If we do we should give the captain some shit about double standards first. First he projects his frustration at not winning on us and essentially scapegoats us by kicking us out in absentia, then let's us back in to help him win. This is his last year at school and the wizarding world isn't kind, he should think about growing up and thinking ahead.
>>1345081You put your bag to the shelf over the seats but your bag was half open and some of your start fall on your head. Juliette laughs as you get hit by the Ancient Runes Made Easy book. All the books you need were ordered by your dad a few weeks ago and delivered to your home. Your dad doesn't like shopping at Diagon Alley much. Says there are all kinds of weird types there.You put away all your books and also take your golden Rowena Ravenclaw card from the ground. "Hey John... actually it was really nice that you found us here because I wanted to talk to you about something." Bryan says looking at your card. "Nice card by the way...it gave me an idea too just now."Puzzled and curious you sit down and look at him. "What do you mean?" you ask."You see since our first year we are facing many threats. Even though the You-Know-Who is gone the world is still not safe. First we had that crazy vampire lady. Then that attack at the Quidditch match last year. And of course a frigging Death Eater in our school, killing our professor just a few months ago... Did you know that this summer our chaser Kristin's parents were mugged at wand point in Wales? By a very, very big guy. (4U) Kristin swears he was a half troll. Well I don't know much about that but it is clear that we are constantly under grave danger."You nod and wait for him to finish. "The point is that we were talking about this for a while and we think we should form a group to defend ourselves. We should teach ourselves how to cast defensive spells and practice with each other. Sort of like last year's Duelling Club. We need like minded friends to protect each other's backs." "What does my card has to do with it?" you ask curiously."Well... I was thinking about what to call this club. How does Rowena's Eagles...but Alice thinks it's a stupid name.""Such a cheesy name. Should be dragons..." she intervenes. Juliette sighs. "You are obsessed with dragons..." "Anyway guys." Bryan takes control of the conversation again. "Perhaps we can use these cards to also communicate with each other to plan and organize stuff. I think everyone should have a Rowena Ravenclaw card in their collection.... You are lucky you have a gold one, John!" You think about what Bryan is saying and...>"I think it's a very good idea, Bryan. It is clear that danger lurks around very closely and we need people that we can trust and rely on. I am in.>Wait... what is that you are purposing actually? Just a Ravenclaw exclusive club to practice magic and duel? Do we really need this?>I think that might be against the school rules guys... Did you look it up? [Trying to evade joining and/or discourage them out of the idea]>Wow! This is the best idea ever! Don't worry Bryan you come to the right person. I will teach you guys everything I know. [Arrogant]>I guess I can join you guys... who else will you invite? Are you going to lead and teach us? [Half hearted]>Other

>>1345146There is always a squealer. Also if we start accepting other house members we will need to deal with David wanting to join in.
>>1345130>I think it's a very good ideaObvious caveats are obvious. While, yes we have proven that Hogwarts is not as safe as it claims we need to keep any fight Club on the down low. Also, feel free to bring I've friends from outside ravenclaw but make Damn sure they can keep their mouths shut Dark Lord Bane sounds pretty scary to be honest.
>>1345136>>1345146>>1345147>>1345153>>1345154>>1345155>>1345189>>1345207"I think it's a very good idea!" you say excited. Bryan cheers and the two girls also laugh. Even Cordelia buzzes with hype. "I was thinking we could start from the beginning. First practice some basic combat spells, and then maybe even move to other stuff like potions or even transfigurations. Juliette is a master in transfigurations so she would be of great help. And you are a master in potions!"Juliette blushes a little. "I am not a master..." Alice laughs, "Compared to me you are basically on McGonnagal levels!" You start to think about this and process it all. It seems like a good and useful idea. "Are you going to invite outsiders?" you ask. Bryan clearly says no. "I think we don't need others. They will just cause trouble and bring drama. You remember how the Gryffindor and Slytherin students destroyed the herbology class in our first year. I certainly don't want any weirdo from Slytherin or bullies like Malus or Alba from Gryffindor in our club..." Then he looks at you and shrugs. "Sorry I forgot you are good friends with that girl."You just nod and say it's okay. Bryan tells you to also ask Glenn, Anya and Tim to join the club. "So if they also say yes, we will be four of us here and three of them, seven in total. Even if they say no I trust they will keep our secret." Bryan says. "Guys...come on you will not invite Valdis?" Juliette asks.Bryan sighs before answering and looks at you.>"I think we should invite Valdis. He is a good kid and a good friend.">"I like Valdis as a friend but...he is a bit clumsy. Might not be the best idea to invite him.">I don't really have an opinion about this... you decide.>No, we shouldn't invite him. He would just create some mess and damage the club somehow.>Other
>>1345265>>"I think we should invite Valdis. He is a good kid and a good friend."

>>1345265>"I think we should invite Valdis. He is a good kid and a good friend."He's got heart
>>1345269>>1345273>>1345291>>1345316"I think we should invite Valdis. He is a good kid and a good friend."Bryan shrugs. "Okay if you say so." "Hey guys!" Glenn enters the compartment and Anya follows him. You feel a sudden rush of feelings as you see your two closest friend finally arriving. You hug each of them and they also sit in the compartment with you guys. After a few minutes of chit chat, Bryan also tells them about his "Eagles" idea. Glenn seems not very excited about it at first but he also accepts to join as do Anya. Anya likes the idea of using Ravenclaw cards as a means of communication. She says she will look it up on how to do it. The train slowly starts to move and you start on your journey towards your 3rd year in Hogwarts.You start talking about your summer with Anya and Glenn while the other three gets into a heated arguement about who would win in a Quidditch match between Wales and Scotland. >Continue talking with Anya and Glenn>Ask Bryan where will the club meet in Hogwarts [and perhaps offer the secret Velvet Room]>After hearing all this Quidditch talk, decide to find Anthony and talk with him about either returning to team or saying goodbye to it.>Try to find the food cart and get some food for yourself and your friends>Try to find someone else in the train [Tim]>Try to find someone else in the train [Alba]>Try to find someone else in the train [Rachel]>Try to find someone else in the train [David]>Try to find the last two people invited to the Rowena's Eagles and ask them if they want to join [Tim & Valdis]>Try to get some shut eye before arriving [Sleep through the journey]>Try to find some of the professors and ask them about the new years courses [Which professor?]>Other

Just finished reading the end of the second year.I must admit very bald of you in giving us a clue someone was personating as Tim when someone said he/she had saw him at the library.
>>1345358>>1345436>>1345477You continue talking with Anya and Glenn. Glenn tells you that ever since that night he still hasn't got any visions at all. "Maybe I am finally cured" he jokes. You are just glad that there are no more upcoming doom around. Glenn's mom, aunt, great aunt and grandmother are pretty happy that he correctly predicted the attack on Hogwarts though. It seems like they are not giving him any hard time about his lack of visions anymore at home. Almost all of the women in his family have the Gift to a certain degree. You can't imagine how it is to live in a house with prophetic women all the time.Anya tells you about his summer and tells you how she spent some time with miners together with her parents. You always forget that muggles work in the mines themselves instead of house elves or goblins. What a strange society you think. Anya also seems glad that you will not be "wasting" your time more with Quidditch.You tell the two about your dinner at Valdis' home and about meeting Rachel there. "So she kept your secret?" Anya asks. You nod. Only Glenn, Rachel and Anya knows about your mom's involvement in that night. Surprisingly Anya tells you that she is leaving the Book Club. "I guess I just got bored with the other students there..." Both of them also tells you strictly that they will never join Valdis' astronomy club again after last year's boring sessions in the middle of the night. Anya says she will select Arithmancy and Muggle Studies for her electives and Glenn will select Divination and Muggle Studies. It seems Anya recruited him to select Muggle Studies. He just shrugs and says that she promised to help him a lot in the class. Just as you are talking a few students walk in the corridor. One of them stops at the door of your compartment and starts shouting "Oh no! Look! Somebody is attacking me!" in a theatrical way. Before you could understand what is happening Anya sighs in an annoyed way and the kid outside continues "I am so afraid I must leave Hogwarts and go back home!" It's Malus from Gryffindor. He is making fun of you while a few other Gryffindors laugh including Bill Weasley and another first grader kid next to him who has the same red hair. His brother must have started Hogwarts this year. >Ignore them and pretend like nothing is going on.>Show them a rude gesture and tell them to go away from inside the compartment.>Open the door and confront them in an angry way.>Other
>>1345533>>Ignore them and pretend like nothing is going on.
>>1345533>OtherOpen the door"Really? That's actually the best that you could come up with? The delivery is all stilted, I mean I am actually in the house for smart people and didn't catch what you were going for. At least try to be funny."
>>1345533>>1345542Switching to >Ignore them and pretend like nothing is going on.For consensus sake
>>1345538>>1345545>>1345655You decide to ignore them and don't lower yourself to their level. You also tell your friends to just ignore them. Anya seems pretty pissed off while Glenn just looks annoyed and bored. Bryan gets ready to stand up and get into an arguement with them when you hear someone shouting.You just see a cloud of red and yellow with a thunderous roar flowing through the corridor in haste towards Malus. It's a half cloud half lion head. Malus, now running and screaming trips on the floor and falls down right on his face while trying to crawl in fear. First everyone is shocked and then followed by a loud laughter. The lion disappears just when it's about to touch Malus' face and behind it comes running Alba."I...told...you...to stay away from my friends you useless loser!" she shouts at Malus her wand pointed at his face. 1/2
>>1345687"What is going on here?" a woman shouts in a frustrated voice. "Making trouble again, on the first day Miss Morteno?" It's the head of Gryffindor, Professor McGonagall. Without Alba having the time to defend herself McGonagall takes her and walk through the corridor with her. You just hope she will not get into much trouble. Malus and his friends all scatter around like headless chicken and run away. "Oh man...that girl is really something!" Bryan says in awe. "I wouldn't want to get on her bad side." >Yeah she is. I am really glad to have her as a friend. You should reconsider your opinions about her too. >She is totally crazy. That was unnecessary.>I think she is one of the best witches in our age. Maybe we should invite her to our club too?>Yeah, I should go and check her.>Yeah...anyway... let's just try to finish this trip without any more incidents.>Yeah I should go...I need to do something. [Leave Compartment to Find Someone Else][Who?]>Other
>>1345717>>Yeah she is. I am really glad to have her as a friend. You should reconsider your opinions about her too. plus >I should go and check her.
>>1345717>Yeah she is. I am really glad...>Yeah, I should go check on her
>>1345717>Yeah I should go...I need to do something. [Leave Compartment to Find Someone Else][Who?]Anthony to talk about our ejection from the team and making it official.
>>1345717>Yeah she is. I am really glad to have her as a friend. You should reconsider your opinions about her too.>Yeah, I should go and check her.Keep inviting her to the club in the back of our heads, want to see how it goes with just Ravenclaws at the moment
>>1345722>>1345733You decide to go and check Alba. You tell Bryan that you are lucky to have her as a friend and he should reconsider his opinions too. After that you leave the compartment. You walk through the corridor passing students. Finally you see McGonagall exiting from a compartment and leaving Alba behind. She seems pissed off a little bit. You enter the compartment and>You cheer and hug her, thanking for dealing with Malus>You greet her friendly and ask how did it go with the Professor>You enter and greet her and say she didn't need to do what she did because you don't want her to get into trouble>Enter and say you don't need her protection and she shouldn't have done it.
>>1345855>>You cheer and hug her, thanking for dealing with Malus
>>1345855>You cheer and hug her, thanking for dealing with Malus>You greet her friendly and ask how did it go with the Professor
>>1345855>You greet her friendly and ask how did it go with the Professor
>>1345862>>1345935>>1345861You enter the compartment and cheer for her. "Wow! Alba thanks a lot for dealing with Malus! How did it go with the Professor?"She says that McGonagall is completely obsessed with her. "She always follows me and thinks I am doing something wrong. Like, all the time." Then she proceeds to ask you about your summer. "I was very sad to hear you left early John... you missed our match. I would have beaten you so bad" She laughs.Choose one>Talk about Quidditch>Talk about Death Eater attack>Talk about your summer>Talk about the new DADA professor
>>1345986>>>Talk about your summer>>Talk about the new DADA professor
>>1345986>>Talk about Quidditch
>>1345986>Talk about your summer>tell her we're probably off the team
>>1345986>Talk about your summer>Talk about the new DADA professor
>>1345986>Talk about the new DADA professor
>>1346028>>1346014>>1345987"I met with the new DADA professor" you say."Really? Who is it?" You tell Alba all about the dinner and meeting with the new Professor. "He seems like a nice, normal person...""I hope nothing weird happens this year." She says with a sigh. "My parents even considered taking me from Hogwarts." she says getting pissed off again with her clear lisp. Then she clears her throat and asks, "So Rachel Rosenfeld was there too? Something about that girl... I just don't trust... I don't know what exactly.">What do you mean? You are getting paranoid.>She does have some strange auro I agree...but she is okay.>Why would you say that? I like Rachel very much.>I don't trust her a lot either. I think she has a dark side.>Other
>>1346092>Why would you say that? I like Rachel very much.>Other"She actually reminds me of you. But less... passionate"
>>1346092>>Why would you say that? I like Rachel very much.
>>1346092>Why would you say that? I like Rachel very much.
>>1346119Want to add this comment?
>>1346140Well i do want. But whatever the other anon's want to.
>>1346119>>1346123>>1346125>>1346143"Why would you say that? I like Rachel very much. In fact, she reminds me of you...but less passionate."Alba doesn't seem to like that much. "Come on. What does she have in common with me? This girl is weird. But more importantly there are strange stories about her. Last year Bill Weasley found her wandering around the corridors. He said she looked like a maniac. She was telling him that she needed to find a room and open it because she was better than us." You listen keenly."What the hell is she talking about do you think?" Alba asks.>Play dumb and say you have no idea>Tell her that she was under the influence of the Death Eater [Partly True needs an easy Social check]>Tell her that you know something was going on but it is over now and she should trust you about her. >Tell her about everything from Death Eater influence to Rachel's own foolish dream to find the Chamber of Secrets. But add it is over now and she was just confused.>Tell her everything plus tell her also that Rachel is a parseltongue.
>>1346185>>Tell her that she was under the influence of the Death Eater [Partly True needs an easy Social check]also tell her to keep it a secret
>>1346185>Tell her that she was under the influence of the Death Eater [Partly True needs an easy Social check]She's recovering now and wants this to stay secret.
>>1346185>Tell her that she was under the influence of the Death Eater [Partly True needs an easy Social check]It is unbecoming of a Gryphindor to bully a person who was mind-controlled.
>>1346185>Tell her that she was under the influence of the Death Eater [Partly True needs an easy Social check]Please keep it a secret as you said she is already having histories being told about her. And we both know how fake stories can hurt someone (remenbering the paper incident)
>>1346194>>1346205>>1346219>>1346233Give me a Social check. Roll 1d10. I will accept the third roll.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>1346269
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>1346286>>1346273Well what you know. Half truth is better then the whole true.
>>1346297nice roll anon
>>1346297Okay i will go and kill myself...
>>1346297"She was under the influence of the Death Eater... I mean...she didn't had any control or whatever... She was probably tricked... I think... I mean she was... But you have to keep this as a secret Alba. She already went through a lot. Okay?"Alba just looks at you and slowly nods. "All right." she says. "We both know how fake stories (Hogwarts Magazine is Fake News!) can hurt people..." you mumble."You mean when they wrote you were in love with me?" Alba asks with a grin. You open your mouth but forget what were you about to say. "Don't worry John. I will keep your secret safe." she says with a smile. You are glad you didn't mess it up! 1/2
>>1346273>>1346286>>1346297Nice combo breaker
If we use ravenclaw cards as a means of communication it will let anyone know who is in the club with a simple search. We should use something everyone already has instead. Like nipples.
>>1346383Think of it like enchanthing the ones the members have. When an ordinary person look at it he sees just the normal card. When the member look at it the letters rearrange to show the date and hour for the next meeting
>>1346337After a little bit of more chat the food cart arrives and you eat with Alba. Afterwards you leave her to go back to your friends. The trip is almost over. Just as you are walking in the corridor someone calls to you. You turn left and see Anthony sitting in one of the compartments. He is sitting alone. "They went to change into their robes." he gives an explanation. "Hi John. How have you been?" You enter and sit with Anthony. It is a brief and clear talk. You tell him how have you been and how was your summer in a few sentences. The air seems tense. "You know that you are not in the team anymore right?" he asks you.You nod. "Yeah I guessed that already." >Tell him you accept your fault and apologize. Tell him that you will concentrate on your classes now that you are out and wish him luck.>Tell him that you are sorry and you wish to continue being a part of the team, if possible.>Tell him that you guessed you were out and it's okay without apologizing.>Tell him that you don't really care.>Other
>>1346440>Tell him you accept your fault and apologize. Tell him that you will concentrate on your classes now that you are out and wish him luck.
>>1346440>>Tell him you accept your fault and apologize. Tell him that you will concentrate on your classes now that you are out and wish him luck.
>>1346445>>1346446>>1346451You tell him that you accept your mistake and you apologize. You will take more time to focus on your classes now and you wish him and the team best of luck.Anthony nods coldly and says thanks. "See you later." You leave the compartment feeling like you did the best thing by apologizing. Anthony felt like he was ready to explode. Were you really at fault? Or was he overreacting for an already over Quidditch tournament? You head back to your friends and in just a few minutes the train arrives. You feel like you are coming back home. You get out and take a deep breath. "Finally back..."You and your friends get in a line and wait for your carriage to arrive. Suddenly you see a very sinister looking horse like creature. More than one. They are driving the carriages. "What the hell?" you take a step back in panic. "What's up John?" Anya asks you. Glenn also looking at the ame spot as you are looks horrified. Anya looks at you worried. "You don't want to come back to Hogw-" "Look at this creature!" you shout. A few more heads turn to look at you. Creating a scene like this on the first day back is probably not the best thing..."It's okay John. They are Thestrals" somebody whispers to you from behind. You turn to see Rachel. "A what?" you ask"Do you see what I am seeing John?" Glenn asks. Anya now looking quite puzzled and worried."These beasts are called Thestrals." Rachel explains. "They drive our carriages. Normally they are invisible but..."Suddenly it dawns on you. You know that name. You read it before. How stupid you are to forget it? You have spent countless hours reading about magical creatures. "They are invisible unless you have witnessed death." Rachel nods. "Yeah... I forgot that you never saw them before. I always saw them since we first started Hogwarts..."Glenn still not convinced stays a little back. You come a little closer to examine the Thestrals and they really both fascinate and scare you. Before you can get a more detailed look the line comes up and you have to hop on the carriage. With thestrals slowly pulling you, you arrive at Hogwarts to start your third year.>Thanks everyone for joining us and thanks everyone for not leaving me alone and helping me to get a successful restart for our quest. I hope to get the next thread sometime soon. Check the twitter account for news and follow us @JVApiseQuest>I will archive the thread now and gonna be around a little more if you want to ask me anything.
>>1346573thanks for running
>>1346573Pretty cool. Guess in the third year John is going to try be more reclusive. I say that after we already agreed to build a secret duelling club...So Rachel witnessed her mother's death uh? That's why she can see the thetrals from such young age?
>>1346573Also how bad Alba wanted to smack us after we tried to tell half the truth to her?
>>1346581You are welcome>>1346591I am looking forward for this and future years to get the story more mature. Yes she witnessed her mother's death.>>1346601Who knows what that Catalan thinks?
Archive is up! Get those votes going! I will also update the pastebin document now.
>>1346573Thanks for running!
>>1346651You because you wrote her.
>>1346651O poor little snake girl...More mature? We just saw someone die. Not even Potter was seeing this things in his third year...i think..
>>1346703He burned a dude's face with his hands in his first year
>>1345436Lol'd at that spy comment.>>1345519Yeah I think it went unnoticed.
>>1346742Glad you enjoyed>>1346726That was just a dude we faced a bat-wizard. Fucker was hard to put down.
>>1346768>John Apise and the Bloody Bat was the first year's title. I think we don't have a title for the second year.
