For character informations, old threads and stuff:>http://pastebin.com/RR1jbGbc>Summary: Year is 1983. You are in your second year in Hogwarts. Lord Voldemort was "killed" by the Boy Who Lived two years ago. . You are John Apise, only child of a rich pureblood family, you started Hogwarts last year. You love potions, herbology and magical beasts. You played as the Seeker last year in the Ravenclaw Quidditch team but you couldn't win the Quidditch cup. Your house though won the House Cup, which is not a small feat. You stopped the half vampire DADA professor at the end of the year and saved your friends lives. You are now in your second year.>Second Year so far: Before the school year started, you went to Bordeaux 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 the Hogwarts and managed to get in the Quidditch team again as the Seeker, you are a member of the book club, duelling club and your friend Valdis' astronomy club. >Now: You have celebrated your birthday last week and Gryffindor - Hufflepuff match is coming up soon. Now you are on your way to the Transfigurations class.
>>672448Forgot my trip
Last week was a nice one. You finally had the courage to write to your mom about the broomstick you broke and she told you not to worry about it and that she would send you a new one. She did seem to have been pleased even with your effort in the game, apart from the fact that you got injured of course. Tim gifted you some chocolates and Glenn gave you a new silver vial for potioneering. Anya gave you a copy of a book called "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" You didn't check it out yet.Now you are on your way to the Transfigurations class with your friends and you sit with Valdis in the class. Valdis was surprisingly fine with you leaving his Astronomy club so you are glad it didn't effect your friendship. He tells you that he is totally rubbish in Transformation and it's not your best skill either. Professor McGonagall starts talking about how Transfugiration is a science and also an art that only the sharpest of mind can hope to master. It is a bit intimidating. "Today I will show you how to turn animals into water goblets." You spend some time practicing the words and the hand movements of the spell and finally feel ready to try it out. Everyone gets a small mouse from a box on Professor's table and place them on their own desks. You aim at the mouse with your wand and say "Vera Verto"Roll 1d10>I will take the average of first two rolls.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>672505Changing the dice yet again? Nah, how are ya today Gringott?
>>672510I want to try this rule now, we'll see how it goes. I am fine, getting some beers for the night. You?
>>672519Tired. Was up late last night and up early today.
>>672527Well it's okay you are SleepyAnon after all.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>672505Sorry im late
So we got an 8?
>>672510>>672537>8"Vera Verto!" Your mouse stuns for a second and then suddenly and gracefully transforms into a nice water goblet. It's almost a perfect one. "Good one, Mr. Apise." Professor McGonagall approves. "Please do show Mr. Viridian some skill... I just feel sorry for the poor mouse."You look to your left and see Valdis looking completely shocked at his mouse, which is now a half goblet half mouse with hairs and a tail. You try hard not to laugh and show how to better pronounce the words to Valdis. Half of the class seems to have failed with the spell. Tim and Glenn keeps arguing on how to pronounce it the correct way while Anya admires her successful transfiguration."How are you so good at this John?" Valdis asks.>"I study and practice a lot.">"I guess I am just smart.">"It was just luck... normally I am not very good at this either.">"Nevermind me Valdis, I think you should just stick to Astronomy...">"Other"
>>672567>>"It was just luck... normally I am not very good at this either."But studying may have helped.
>>672558>>672567>"I study and practice a lot."Its not wrong we do both things
>>672632>>672580"I study and practice a lot actually...but I was also lucky a little... normally I am not very good at this either....Here just swing a bit like this..." You try to show Valdis how to better cast the spell. At the end of the class you might say Valdis improved just a little but maybe not really. You head towards the door feeling satisfied and content with your achievement for today.Then the Professor calls for you. "Mr. Apise could you come over here for a minute, please?"You nod to your friends and tell them you'll soon join them and turn around to walk towards the professor, leaving them with a surprised look on their faces. "Yes, Professor?"She sits and also offers you to sit down. "I wanted to ask how are you doing? You were injured kind of badly recently and also these accusations towards your aunt must have upset you."You are a bit taken a back with this sudden softness coming from the Professor. You sit and think about your answer.>"I am fine Professor thank you. I appreciate your asking.">"I am fine Professor. Those stuff have nothing to do with me.">"I am fine Professor, I don't care about the lies of the press.">"I am fine...">"It's a family matter Professor. I don't want to discuss it with you.">"Other"
>>672647>"I am fine Professor thank you. I appreciate your asking."
>>672647>"I am fine Professor thank you. I appreciate your asking.>"It's a family matter Professor. I don't want to discuss it with you."
>>672647>>"I am fine Professor thank you. I appreciate your asking."Maybe ask her what she's going to do about what's his face from last thread?
>>672659You mean Malus?
>>672666Yes him. Doesn't seem like he's going to stop being a dick.
Do you want to tell Malus on Professor McGonagall?
>>672670Nah lets give it alittle more timeBullying in the 80s as a non issue Not much will come fromthis except more bullying
>>672652>>672658>>672659"I am fine Professor thank you. I appreciate your asking." You answer in a calm manner. "It's a family matter...I don't want to discuss it." Professor nods slowly. "Very well. Don't let the outside world get to you, Mr. Apise. You are a very good student and I would be very disappointed if you lose your focus.">"Thank you Professor, I will not disappoint you, promise.">"Thanks Professor, I try my best.">"Thank you... can I go now?">"Umm...I wanted to also tell you something about someone from Gryffindor...">"I would never let anyone distract me from my quest of becoming a great wizard.">"I never listen to the slander of the enemies of family don't worry, Professor.">Other
>>672716>"I never listen to the slander of the enemies of family don't worry, Professor.
>>672716>>"I never listen to the slander of the enemies of family don't worry, Professor."
>>672716>"Thank you Professor, I will not disappoint you, promise."
>>672723>>672725>>672774"I never listen to the slander of the enemies of family don't worry, Professor." You say with a strong will. Professor seems taken a back for a second. "And thank you Professor. I will not disappoint you, promise!" you add. She smiles and says she hopes for your sake. With that you leave her and catch up with your friends. In the meantime Gryffindor and Hufflepuff teams are getting ready for the match this afternoon.Would you attend the game or spend your time at the Castle?>Attend>Stay at the Castle

>>672924>>672910You choose to attend the game1/2
>>672981You climb the seats on one of the spectator towers of the Quidditch field to find a seat. Anthony and the rest of the team sits near the Slytherin side as they don't consider Hufflepuff to still be in the race. Anya and Glenn are cheering for Hufflepuff to support Mary, the girl from the Book Club who has recently become very interested in the Quidditch and Tim is also cheering for Hufflepuff just to see Slytherin lose. David and Rachel and some other Slytherins are also watching the game. Your cousin is probably also somewhere closeby watching the game.>Sit with Anya and Glenn>Sit with Tim>Sit with Ravenclaw Quidditch Team>Sit with Slytherins>Try to find Alba and sit with Gryffindors>Try to find your cousin and cheer with him>Randomly sit somewhere empty

>>673034>>673051>>673057You navigate through the seats to find the Ravenclaw team. Anthony and others are sitting and cheering loudly for Hufflepuff. You are really not sure if Ravenclaw can actually win the cup but you are sure that Anthony believes it.Kristin, one of the chasers of the team is talking about some kind of Goblin while the keeper and the beaters are shouting some not very nice things towards the Slytherin team. The game is quite in the middle with the score of 40-40. You catch a glimpse of Picar Aquila, the Seeker of Slytherin who beat you last match. He seems pretty determined and fast. "...you will see guys when Hufflepuff wins now and we destroy Gryffindor next match we will win the cup!" Anthony claims.>Just chill and watch the game>Cheer loudly together with the team>Talk with Kristin>Tell Anthony you also believe that it is possible to win the cup>Tell Anthony it's probably impossible to win the cup>Other

>>673129>Talk with Kristin
>>673141>>673142>>673146>>673178"...no I'm telling you I saw it last night." You sit next to Kristin and she greets you warmly before returning to her conversation with the other Ravenclaw chaser.Kristin is two years older than you and in 4th grade. She has green/yellowish eyes and brown hair with some light freckles. "Whats up?" you try to join the conversation. She is telling that she saw a goblin last night but the other girl is just saying it was probably a House Elf, there are no goblins in Hogwarts.>"Who cares Kristin, just watch the game" As Hufflepuff scores>"A goblin? It was probably a House Elf">"Really? Because last year I also saw one">"Nevermind that, what are we going to do about Anthony's dreams?">"Other"
>>673223>>"Really? Because last year I also saw one"
>>673223>"Really? Because last year I also saw one"Then proceed to go on a a racist rant on goblins.
>>673223>"Really? Because last year I also saw one"
>>673225>>673242>>673247>>673258"Really? Because last year I also saw one"Kristin gets excited. "What?? Really?? Tell me!!"You tell her your midnight encounter with a goblin who was carrying a big chest. "Well that is exactly how I saw him!" She says but both of you can't really be sure if it was the same goblin since you anything you describe to each other is basically just what a goblin is. "I don't know if it was the same one" Kristin says. "But I never heard of goblins wandering around in Hogwarts." Hufflepuff scores and the crowd roars.She continues after people calm down. "Mine wasn't carrying a chest but she had a satchel on his shoulder." She says it just run away quickly when he saw her. It was kind of late at night.>Ask her where did she see the goblin>Ask her what was she doing at night>Ask her if she wants to patrol at night for the goblin>Ask her why does she think it's important>Change the subject and focus on the match>Other

>>673443As you keep talking suddenly the crowd goes crazy. Slytherin seeker catches the Snitch. The game ends 210 to 70. The whole Ravenclaw team's morale is suddenly at an all time low. You and Kristin get distracted from the subject. Finally everyone starts leaving the field and everyone is speculating who will win the cup. You return to the Castle with everyone else and climb to the Ravenclaw tower. It makes you kind of sad to think that you are probably not gonna win the Cup this year...again.2/3>Sorry for the late posting I got something to take care of but now its ok.
>>673572After some hours spend in the Ravenclaw common room you decide to go to sleep. You don't know how long it has been but you wake up with someone shaking you.You open your eyes to see Glenn. He is full of sweat and looks pale. "I...I think I saw...I saw something in my dream....It...It was very real." He continues to explain to you that he saw someone, he thinks a girl, in Hogwarts, running in the corridors and that there is the Death.You try to get awaken as quickly as possible to understand what is Glenn saying. You leave the room with him not to wake the others up and talk in the corridors."You mean like...now??" You ask him still half shocked half asleep. He nods nerviously. "I think so... It felt so real." >"It's probably just a nightmare, go back to sleep.">"It could be Kristin, looking for the goblin">"Whatever it is we should investigate, let's go.">"You should stay here, I will check it out.">"Other"
>>673636>>"Whatever it is we should investigate, let's go."
>>673636>>"It could be Kristin, looking for the goblin"
>>673636>>"It could be Kristin, looking for the goblin">>"Whatever it is we should investigate, let's go."Respect the glenn
>>673636>>"It could be Kristin, looking for the goblin">>"Whatever it is we should investigate, let's go."
>>673644>>673661>>673673>>673725"It could be Kristin...she must be looking for the goblin." Glenn looks puzzled. "Kristin...From the team...I will tell you on the way. Whatever it is we should investigate. Let's go!"You grab Glenn and both of you run down the stairs and across the common room to exit the Ravenclaw Common Room.>Do you want to do any last thing before leaving?
>>673804>Nope, off to ADVENTURE!
>>673804>grab our wandbut seriously lets go.
>>673846>>673858>>673874You two leave the Ravenclaw Common Room and leave the Ravenclaw Tower. After running for some minutes Glenn tells you he has no idea where to go. You remember Kristin telling you where she saw the Goblin so you head towards there. After some more minutes of running, Glenn and you are both out of breath. You realize you are in a corridor actually you are not supposed to be. "Stupid stairs got us lost again!" Glenn complains while trying to breath. You hold your wand squeezed in your hand and try to think where to go. You try to navigate the ever changing stairs and corridors to reach the floor near the Velvet Room and when you reach a floor in a very isolated part of the Castle you hear someone talking.1/2
>>673930"...really don't see where is this thing you were..."You hear someone talking at the end of the corridor. It sounds familiar. You and Glenn start walking quietly towards the voice."...ah...what are you doing here Mr.Nello?"Sound is getting closer and closer. "..I have done as you asked...now tell me where..." Someone else is speaking this time. A girl. Sounds familiar too. "...Good night..." Another voice. Much more familiar. You are finally close enough to see who are talking. You see Rachel standing next to Professor Hevelius. Their backs are turned to you. They are facing someone else. It's Tim.2/3
>>673953"What is going on here?" Professor Hevelius asks. "Where is the troll you saw?" Rachel doesn't answer. Glenn pokes you and tells you to hide with his hands near some statues in the corridor. You do that. "You see Professor..." Tim says. "There are no trolls." His voice starts to get bolder. "There is only me." His voice cracks. You can see he is getting taller. His hair and facial feautres starts to change. Rachel screams in shock. "What is this..." Just as Professor tries to say something Tim interrupts."There is only me. Remember me?" He doesn't look like Tim now. It is a grown man with longer hair and a beard. You recognize him. The Death Eater who attacked you in the Quidditch friendly match at the start of the year. "Mr. Nello, as you call him. just had some useful hairs for me when I had the luck to encounter him earlier this year....and now I am here. I was here. Under your nose. Can't smell the dark magic as you used to now can you, Cerberus?" The Death Eater asks. Professor Hevelius draws his wand. Rachel seems to be in a shock state. >Watch how it will play out>Reveal yourself and try to intervene>Try to attack the Death Eater>Tell Glenn to get to safety>Other
>>674022>OtherTry to help Rachel get out of the upcoming duel.

>>674080>>674054>>674092>>674100You start to wait for a few more minutes, waiting for the right moment. You try to tell Glenn to get help but he seems kind of shocked watching the scene."Do you think I would have let you go, Cerberus? How many of us have you personally put into Azkaban?" The Death Eater also draws his wand. Rachel screams and tries to run away. "Stop little girl. Or I will blow you to a thousand pieces."Professor Hevelius seems unable to move now without provoking the Death Eater to harm Rachel. "Do you want revenge?" he asks in a calm manner.Death Eater seems to get annoyed with this question. "Yes I do! Tonight is the night of cleansing. All tratiors will be executed. The ones you have collaborated too.""I haven't collaborated with any of your vile kin, Death Eater." The Professor replies. You think this is the right moment and start to move towards them."Oh yes you did." The Death Eater continues. "Don't you think I know what kind of a conspiracy you have plotted with the Testudos?" When the Death Eater mentions the name of your mother's family, you are already out in the open and about to act. You lose your control and cast the Expelliarmus on the Death Eater without a second though.Roll 1d10.I will take the average of the first two rolls.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>674199
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>674199
>>674204>>674207"Expelliarmus!" you shout and your spell hits the Death Eater. His wand flies away from his hand and falls on the ground. Glenn also starts to move towards you while being in a kind of shock state."You!" the Death Eater shouts. "I knew it! I knew you were all together in this. How else would the mighty Cerberus let Luisa Testudos go away free?" "John!" Professor shouts. "Get back!" "Your aunt is dead, boy! She was a traitor and plotted with Cerberus here and sold all the other Death Eaters to him so he can lock them up forever." 1/2
>>674257>"John, get back!"What the fuck you pussy. He is disarmed and surrounded by wands. Don't waste your time blathering at bystanders, petrify him and go tell the ministry to cancel everyone's leave because they got a busy night.
>>674257"Are there others here?" Professor asks the Death Eater and moves slowly towards the wand on the floor."Maybe, maybe not." He replies. Professor seems still on edge. He takes the wand from the floor. "You will follow me to the dungeons." You interrupt. "What do you mean my aunt is dead?" The Death Eater laughs. "She is paying for her treason.""My Aunt was never one of you!" you shout angrily."John..." Professor tries to calm you and get you, Glenn and Rachel to safety."Oh yes she was. She was supposed to infiltrate the Ministry... which is where she was caught." Professor puts himself between you and the Death Eater."Ask your Professor if you don't believe me. She gave him names and he let her go.""Enough!" the Professor authoritatively shouted. "You kids run to Profess-" You interrupt him. "Tell me Professor. Is this true?" Hevelius sighs. "No. It is not. Your aunt was innocent to my knowledge, John." Death Eater laughs again. "Lying until the very end eh?"Hevelius seems even more stressed and confused now but he forces the Death Eater to follow him and tries to send you and Glenn and Rachel away. But then Glenn suggests that the Velvet Room is just nearby and it would be easier to put the Death Eater there instead of the dungeons. After a small explaination of what is the Velvet Room, the Professor agrees and all of you walk towards there. It is just one corridor away. "I assure you John. Your Aunt was not a Death Eater. If she was...believe me I would know it." Professor tells you on the way. You arrive at the Velvet Room. Something is amiss. The door is already open. "How can this be?" you think and realize someone is inside.2/3
>>674340"Professor the door...it's supposed to be clos-" Something dark jumps out of the room, hits the Death Eater and the Professor on it's way out, lands on it's feet and holds a kind of satchel. It is the Goblin. The Goblin snaps his fingers and the nearest armored statue loses it's balance, falls on Rachel. She jumps away at the last second and just gets hit on her legs. She seems to be stuck on the floor with the armor on her. "I have taken what is rightfully mine, finally." The Goblin hisses. You see he carries the Ring of Balerius on his hand. He seems to be also carrying other stuff in his satchel too. Before you could react you realize that as the Professor and the Death Eater are getting up, the Death Eater's wand is also on the floor. Before you could jump, the Death Eater dives for his wand. Professor casts a spell but he misses nearly. Still hits the shoulder of the Death Eater though. Blood splatters on the walls from the wound. Death Eater also casts something but it's deflected from the Professor's shield and instead hits chandelier. Chandelier falls down on the back of Glenn. This is not a place for children now. You look again and the Goblin is gone. Rachel is stucked under the armor in the middle of the duel. >Run help Rachel get out>Check if Glenn is okay>Try to attack the Death Eater>Other
>>674417>>Run help Rachel get out>>Check if Glenn is okayTell Glen we aren getting Rachel out then getting him out of here.
>>674417> Go help Rachel> yell at Glenn why hasn't he ran for help yetAt least it will be easier to identify the naughty goblin now that we know what he was after
Run help Rachel get out
>>674442>>674510You run to help Rachel out. You try to remove the armor but it's too strong. A spell might be needed. Then you see Glenn is actually not conscinous. You just hope that the chandelier didn't hit him in the head and its nothing serious.Professor and the Death Eater gets ready to cast anothe spel to each other. "You, liar will go down tonight!" shouts the Death Eater. You try to pull the armor but it's too heavy. So you decide to cast a spell. Something to levitate it. You have practiced spell many times over the two years so it comes naturally to you. You cast the spell and the armor starts moving slowly. A spell flies over your head as you are trying to save Rachel in the middle of the duel. It is getting very dangerous. You duck at the last moment to avoid getting hit. "John!" you hear someone shouting. As you try to get Rachel out, you afford to look away for a second. You look at the woman who called for you. A woman in black robes, with a wand in hand is running towards you. It is your mother, Joan.1/2
>>674539>Pausing the quest at this cliffhanger for around 10 hours. We will continue right where we were. Stay here.
>>674579Aw shucks, now I have to go to bed.See you in 10 hours. Maybe I'll have finished this Glenn by then!
>>674579Jeeeeez, that cliffhanger!
>>674539The armor levitates and falls down next to Rachel, she is free to go now as you see your mother running towards you. Joan Apise, wearing a dark robe with her wand in her hand is fast and aims at the Death Eater. "Did you find your dead sister?" the Death Eater asks provokingly. "Do you still deny you work with them Cerberus?" Professor seems to be still confused with the whole thing. "No." replies Joan. "Your partner, who came to kill Luisa, is dead." She raises her wand. "And I squeezed this plan of yours out of him before he died. One to kill Luisa and one to kill Hevelius tonight. I will not let it happen."Realizing that half of his plan failed, the Death Eater seems to get nervous. "You killed Vlad? He died in the service of the Dark Lord then. A good death. Yours will not be so good." Another flurry of spells explode between the Death Eater, Professor and Joan.You pull Rachel and crawl towards Glenn to check if he is okay.1/2
>>672448>You love potions, herbologyTime to roid up and become a witcher. Whatever it takes five scoops c'mon.
>>676147As you crawl next to Glenn, he is slowly regainin his consciousness. "Are you okay Glenn?" you ask. He shrugs, looks like in pain. But says he "will live."Rachel still seems to be in a shock. "I..I didn't...I didn't know...He was Tim...then...he is...he tricked me..." She seems to be about to cry. "You have grown old Cerberus. Is that why you start teaching?" the Death Eater taunts the Professor. As their duel continues, the Death Eater plays it smart and on the defensive. "But you are lucky your partners in crime came to rescue you. Luisa might be saved for now but nobody can get away after betraying the Dark Lord.""I have no connection with them." Hevelius says as he casts a spell and vines launch from the walls behind the Death Eater to hold him. "Stop lying, old man!" the Death Eater replies as he burns the vines with a quick fire spell and deflects a disarming spell from Joan. "Stop lying and admit what you did. You made a pact with her! A Death Eater. You are a hypocrite.""I have tried her and found her innocent." Hevelius replies in a short breath as he tries to counter the fire spell of the Death Eater with a water conjuring charm. Death Eater laughs. "Why is her sister here to protect you then?" and then he directs a spell towards you, Glenn and Rachel. Many green and purple vipers are summoned around you. Glenn shrieks and tries to protect himself. Rachel jumps away tries to get away from the snakes. You start casting one of the spells you know to hit the vipers, "Incendio!"One of the vipers is burned and hisses in pain. Others try to bite you and open their mouths while coming towards you. "John!" Your mother shouts. She seems very pissed now. 2/3
>>676163"You attacked my family tonight. You will pay." Joan says furiously. She casts a spell, you seen for the first time. Almost ten Bludger-like objects fly towards the Death Eater, some hit his shield and explode but a few of them hit him and one hits him on his face. He looks all bloodied now. Then Joan casts a spell towards the vipers but only hit a few of them. You are still in danger. Rachel has her back on the wall now and two vipers are coming towards her."Hevelius didn't make any pacts with my family." Joan says. "He found Luisa not guilty.""How can the famous, know-it-all, dark wizard hunter Cerberus would found a Death Eater guilty?" Death Eater snarls, as he tries to put a shielding spell around him."Because I made him do it." Joan says. Another spell from her wand hits another viper. "I always protect my family and do anything I need to do.""You wh-" Death Eater's sentence is broken as a spell from Hevelius hits him and he falls to his knees, still holding his wand. Professor now faces Joan. "It was you!" he exclaims. "All this time. I researched again and again. Tried to remember. It was because of you. You put an Imperius on me!" You are now facing two vipers in front of you. Another viper is coming towards Glenn and two has Rachel trapped at the corner of the wall. It seems you have to choose to help one. You cast another Incendio on the vipers facing you and they hiss in pain as they are caught on fire. The whole corridor smells like rotting skin now. Everything seems to be happening so fast. Only about fifteen minutes past since you first encountered the Death Eater yet it felt like a lifetime to you. What do you do?>Cast Incendio to the viper crawling towards Glenn>Cast Incendio to the vipers crawling towards Rachel>Cast something else [What?]>Run towards Glenn to physically block the viper>Run towards Rachel to physically block the vipers>Other

>>676217>>676236"My mom used an unforgivable curse on Professor Hevelius?" you can't belive what did you just hear. But you don't have much time to think now.You aim your wand on the viper crawling towards Glenn. "Incendio!" The viper starts burning.You run towards Rachel and try to block the vipers physically. You stomp the floor and try to catch their attention. One of the vipers turn to you. The other one starts to raise itself in the air looking and looks kind of like those snakes dancing for the music you have seen before in gypsy performances and such."...I know what I did and I am here to protect you now." you hear your mother say but then something happens.Just as your mom finishes her words to Professor, you hear an incantation. "Avada Kedavra!" Professor suddenly falls on the floor as if hit by something. His eyes still open, but looking empty. Glenn screams in fear. Death Eater's laugh echoes as he killed Professor Hevelius. "No!" you hear your mother scream.1/2
>>676290You feel as if you are watching yourself moving from outside. Everything feels so surreal. Professor is dead. Death Eater laughing maniacally. Your mom's scream. Glenn sitting on the floor next to some burning vipers. Rachel hissing to the viper that looks like hypnotized in front of her. Wait, what? For a second you can't understand what is going on. Then you snap out of it. Rachel seems to be hissing something to the snake. Then the snake opens it's mouth wide open. And suddenly bites itself. You hear your mom and the Death Eater dueling. >Run to check Professor Hevelius>Run to Glenn to take him to safety>Take Rachel and try to understand what is going on>Run towards your mother and attack the Death Eater>Other
>>676298>>Run to Glenn to take him to safety

>need some consensus while waiting for players.
>>676298>Run to Glenn to take him to safety
>>676312>>676484You run to Glenn and try to take him away from the duel. You realize his shoulder is bleeding and he seems pale. "Hang on Glenn!" you tell him and take him out of the harm's way. Just as you do that a spell explodes on the wall where Glenn was a few seconds ago. You saved his life.Rachel seems to be safe for now too as the vipers that was attacking her lie dead on the floor. "You dare to attack them?" Joan shouts to the Death Eater. You see the Death Eater is casting another spell.>Try to jump away and hide from the spell>Try to run over Rachel's side>Try to cast a spell towards the Death Eater>Other
>>676563>Try to run over Rachel's side
>>676563>>Try to cast a spell towards the Death EaterFuck his shit up.
>>676563>>Try to run over Rachel's side
>>676662>>676765You run over to Rachel's side. She seems to be looking better now. She adjusts her green hair band and asks you "What are we going to do?"You don' t know either. You feel extreme stress as your mother is dueling with a Death Eater. "Is the professor really dead?" Glenn asks weakly.At the sametime Joan ducks and evades a curse. "I think someone is coming" Rachel says. You can also hear some sounds approaching from the end of the corridor."I will kill your child and the others!" Death Eater claims while casting another spell directed at the three of you. "Nobody touches my family!" Joan jumps sideways, blocks the Death Eater's view of you, her black robes gracefully dancing as she moves. She raises her wand. "Go to Hell!" she aims at the Death Eater."Avada Kedavra!"1/2
>>676290Nice we can see thestrals now
>>676859A green light shines on the tip of your mother's wand and it all happens so quickly. The Death Eater falls to the floor, dead.Nobody moves or speaks for a moment. The approaching footsteps echoes in the corridor. Then Joan runs towards you. She hugs you in a tight embrace and then looks at the three of you. "They must not know I was here." she says. "They must not know I was here." she repeats. "They must think as the Professor died he took the Death Eater with him. There isn't much time.""Mom...how...how are you here? What happened? Is..is aunt Luisa dead?" "No, John. She is not dead. We don't have time. They mustn't see me.""How did you come here?" "They attacked Luisa. And I learned of their plan. I came to protect him and the students..." She looks down. "I owed him that..."Then she stands up. "I must go now. I have arrived with my broom and I have ways to fly without being seen. I will leave through the window in the secret room I taught you.""That was you...who opened the door-""We don't have time honey. I love you. I am sorry. Keep my secret." She kisses you on the forehead. "They must not know." She tells to you and then look at the others as well. Then she runs.You hear the footsteps coming closer. A few seconds later you see them. Mr. Filch and Professor Flitwick. "Here! Here Filch! Call Dumbeldore quick!" Flitwick runs towards you now.>"Glenn, Rachel...can I trust you? We need to keep this as a secret or my mom would be in trouble...please.">"Glenn... I know you are my friend who will keep it as a secret...And Rachel... I saw what you did. I will keep your secret too. If you tell them about my mom I will tell them you can speak the Snake-tongue!">Don't say anything>"I will tell Professor what happened...including my mom">Other
>>676912>Don't say anythingI feel like we should be in mild shock after seeing someone die and all of that.
>>676912Did mom just cast the killing curse?
>>676912>>Don't say anything
>>676924Lot of secrets revealed in one night.
>>676912>>"Glenn, Rachel...can I trust you? We need to keep this as a secret or my mom would be in trouble...please."
>>676946She did. Plus she confessed of casting another Unforgivable curse on Hevelius in the past. And also implied to have cast another Unforgivable curse earlier tonight on the Luisa's attacker. Lot to process for a young boy.
>>677000We really are just a smarter, nicer Draco malfoy aren't we.
>>676912>Don't say anything>Time for Vietnam Flashbacks
>>676924>>676968>>677070You choose not to say anything. Everything happening is just too much to process. You just look down and hope your friends will understand. Flitwick arrives and starts asking questions. Filtch controls the bodies and confirm that they are dead. Flitwick shouts at him to run and get Dumbledore. "What happened? Are you all right?" He asks. You just nod but can't find the words... then you remember Glenn. "Glenn is hu..hurt Professor!" Professor quickly examines Glenn and make him sit on the floor. "All right my boy...it's all right...don't worry now." He tries to examine Glenn's bloody wound."It was a Death Eater, Professor. He was disguised as a student. He attacked Professor Hevelius and killed him. But Professor managed to take him out too... that was as good as I can see...he attacked us too...John saved me"Flitwick seems very shocked and upset at the same time. "Oh Cerberus... my poor friend..." You can see tears filling up his eyes. "And...and you my boy, you managed to protect your friends?" He emotionally hugs you. Just in a few minutes Dumbledore and the rest of the staff arrives. 1/2
>>676912>Don't say anythingPoor John. ;__;
>>677157They quickly carry the bodies of the Professor and the Death Eater. Professor Snape takes Glenn to the Infirmary Wing quickly after asking some questions to Rachel.Dumbledore says something to Flitwick and then he comes over to you and Rachel and tell you to follow him.You two nervously follow Flitwick. He stops near an ugly stone Gargoyle and says a word. A door opens.He enters the room and tells you to follow him. You and Rachel follow.It is a circular room with a lot of windows and lot of portraits of old people. Most of them seem to be sleeping and the awake ones pretend to be asleep."The Headmaster would like to talk to you... just wait for him here." Flitwick says and takes off in a hurry. You see the sorting hat on one of the tables and a red bird in a cage near it. Rachel looks around but she seems to be too afraid to touch anything."Good night young boy...young lady. I know I saw you before with my great-great-really-great grandson. What happened? Did you accidently kill someone? I know I heard something like this from Dippet.."One of the portraits talk to you. He has a big vial on his hand and looks like a perfect potioneer. You recognize him immedieatly. It's Vindictus Viridian.">"No, sir...there was a duel...someone attacked a professor...we witnessed it.">"No, sir...a profesor was killed...but please can you tell me, will the Headmaster be angry at us?">"No sir...someone attacked the school... Valdis always told me what a great wizard you were." [Change Subject]>Don't answer>"No sir but... do you think this is safe here? Someone attacked a professor and maybe there are more Death Eaters around!">Other
>>677318>"No, sir...there was a duel...someone attacked a professor...we witnessed it."Although I would like to see his reaction to "No not accidently".
>>677318>"No, sir...there was a duel...someone attacked a professor...we witnessed it."For the sake of consensus
>"No, sir...there was a duel...someone attacked a professor...we witnessed it."
>>677350>>677372"No, sir...there was a duel...someone attacked a professor...we witnessed it."Vindictus is shocked. "Someone attacked a professor? Oh my...oh my... where is this world going to? Back in my day Hogwarts professors were-" Rachel pulls you away from the portrait, interrupting Vindictus' rant. She whispers. "John... we must tell Dumbledore the same story. He will ask us what happened."You tell her how your mother described it should be. "Dumbledore already knows of Glenn's Gift. I will say he saw a prophecy and we went to investigate. Do you think he will be mad?"Rachel shrugs. "I don't know...but...I don't have a reason to be out there like you...what can I say?"Then you think. Why WAS Rachel there anyway? "I...I told the Professor to come with me...I told him... I lied to him that I saw a troll." "But why?" you ask."Tim...well not Tim...that Death Eater...posing as Tim, he...he tricked me. He was telling me of this story for months now. We used to meet in the library. He told me I was the one. The Chosen One. To enter a great room. I was worthy. He saw me talking in Parseltongue. I didn't realize he was there...Then he told me I was the one to open some room. I was the Heir of Slytherin." You can see she is getting very nervous and teary eyed now. "I... I never wanted the Professor to die!" >"Look just say you heard some noises and went to check out...">"Can't we say the Death Eater just took you there by force?">"Can't you say you were under a spell?">"Who were you talking in Parseltongue anyway?">"What the hell does it mean to be the Heir of Slytherin and open a room?">"I don't know what to say.">Other
>>677447>"I don't know what to say."
>>677447>>"I don't know what to say."We are screwed
>>677447>"I don't know what to say."We're still tripping on Vietnam flashbacks right now.
>>677496>>677515>>677582"I don't know what to say." You just sigh. All of this just feels like...too much. You don't feel very well. You want to sit down.Rachel looks over some silver vials on a table and seems like deep in thought. After what feels like an eternity to you, someone arrives. It is the Headmaster.He tells you both to sit down, and offers you something. It's Chocolate Frog.You take it out and put it in your mouth. Almost instantly feel a little better."What you have witnessed today, children... is something nobody should ever see..." Dumbledore says. "A beloved teacher...murdered in Hogwarts..." He seems intense. He tells you some stuff about the whole thing but your mind wanders off. "Mom killed that man." your thoughts race in your head."...you should know that utmost security measures will be enforced in Hogwarts..." Dumbledore continues to speak... but you are thinking "Mom cast an Imperius curse on my professor... to save my Aunt...she was a Death Eater...""...and finally Professor Mc Gonagall will be personally taking care of you if you need anyone to talk to about..."You hear Rachel saying something. She says she thought it was Tim and that he called him to meet outside for a very important thing... She also tells some lies. She seems to be good at this. You just want to return to your bed and sleep."...John...John! I was saying if you wish you can return to your home for a while...maybe for the rest of the semester.">"I...I don't know Professor">"I...Yes...I want to go home">"I don't want that...I want toreturn to normal...">Other
>>677678>>"I...Yes...I want to go home"
>"I...Yes...I want to go home"
>>677678>"I...Yes...I want to go home"Back home, back to the innocent childhood days, in his own bed, in his own room, surrounded by familiar things.
>>677678>>"I don't want that...I want toreturn to normal..."
>>677734Can you regain a lost innocence?
>>677761Wishin' doesn't make it so. Mum'll be back home, and will undoubtedly want to talk about it. Poor lil' Johnny!
>>677761... Though it would be interesting if darling mother wiped his memory but he'd still be able to see thestrals!
>>677703>>677709>>677734"I...Yes...I want to go home" Rachel seems surprised. "But John... you have the Quidditch...and..-" Dumbledore interrupts, "It is perfectly all right, Miss Rosenfeld thank you."Then he looks at you. "Very well, Mr. Apise. I mill make the necessary arrangements and contact with your family in the morning..."He stands up. "Now if you want to tell me anything more, is the time to do it. Otherwise you can return to your beds."Rachel stands up and seems ready to leave.>"Thank you Professor." [Leave]>"I feel guilty Professor... I should have realized someone was impersonating one of my best friends.">"There was a goblin, Professor. He took something and run away..">"I...I don't...I don't have anything..to say.">"When will be the funeral of Profesor Hevelius?">"Why does these people still follow the You-Know-Who, Professor? Isn't he dead?">"Are all the Death Eaters evil, Professor?">Other
>>677865>>"Thank you Professor." [Leave]
>>677865>>"There was a goblin, Professor. He took something and run away.."
>>677865>>"There was a goblin, Professor. He took something and run away..">>"Why does these people still follow the You-Know-Who, Professor? Isn't he dead?"
>>677865>"Thank you Professor." [Leave]
>>677875>>677884>>677966You thank the Professor and stand up. Both you and Rachel exit the room and walk towards the main stairs. Rachel asks you not to tell anyone of her ability either...you just nod. You feel sad...and empty. You don't know what to do.Professor Flitwick find you at the stairs and you say goodbye to Rachel. On the way to the Ravenclaw Tower you tell Flitwick that you would be heading home soon. He says he is sad that you had to witness this. Tells you not to think about it and concentrate and your classes."I believe in you John. I know you will be a great wizard one day..."He answers the riddle and the door to the Ravenclaw Common Room opens. As you head inside he says,"Oh and John, Mr. DeMange told me how you defended him and Miss Rosenfeld against the Death Eater and how you defeated the snakes he summoned."You feel like you are blushing. "Thats...that's true, Professor.""You will be a great wizard...and a great hero, John. For your service to this school tonight, 100 points to Ravenclaw!"You don't know what to feel. Do you deserve this? Didn't your family caused these problems? Or should you just blame the Death Eater like everyone? Your mom was only protecting you."Th..thanks Professor"You enter the Common Room. Thankfully everyone is sleeping. You were afraid that people heard about all the trouble. Glenn is not in his bed. Must be staying in the Infirmary overnight. Tim is sleeping. The real Tim. Valdis is snoring. Your roommates...you will miss them...But you decided to go home. You need time. Time to think. You put your head on the pillow and close your eyes. Wild running thoughts suddeny come to an halt as you start to drift away to the dreams. No more stressing or thinking now... in your dreams you enter a world that is entirely your own.>Thanks everyone for joining us this weekend. We finish here for now.>Next time we will be heading home and dealing with our life...>Follow us @JVApiseQuest>I will be lurking around to answer questions.
>>678051Thanks for running Gringott!Were you expecting us to go full shell-shocked
>>678051Thanks for running Gringott.
It was fun to be finally able to participate properly. What a whammy of a quest today, though!
>>678101No I didn't even expected that you would return home
>>678128Think you're gonna go with the average for dice rolls? We've rolled pretty high so far.
>>678145Yes I think I will continue like this.
>>678123Indeed. I was waiting for some stuff to be revealed for a looooong time now. And I was a bit slow on my part. Still haven't used to this board and 2-days running thing. But I guess it was inevitable to be slow with the lower number of players compared to earlier threads.
>>678051Third year - PTSD we finally get to see thestrals edition.By the way what will the students think we just happen to be where the professor and death eater died, dont want to talk about it and go home. They probably think we murdered someone.
>>678152I keep getting distracted by Bloodborne.
>>678175They would probably think you saw some crazy curses and stuff and got very afraid. Many rumours would brew from this night that is for sure. Not all students in Hogwarts witness Death Eater duels.
I go away for a few days and this is the mess that I come back to.What the fuck happened to John that he's now such a indecisive, stupid, bumbling coward?It's not like this is the first time he's had to face death.
>>682005make sure to attend the next one and discuss it with the players.
>>687308I just read all the threads, and this quest is fantastic! Keep the good work, Gringott. Also, do you already know when the third year will start?
>>672448so what happened to Millicent Fauxly quest few years ago? just curious
>>688744Unfortunately, it died into its second year.The plot twist, that someone would lie to the main character and keep the lie up for a whole year, was just too great for some anons to take.
cuase, nigger ?
>>688764They were idiots. It was obvious as hell.
>>688764shame, wish I still had all the drawings
any body got good pictures of diagon alley or gringotts ??
>>688889I've got some.Since this is on autosage, might as well dump what I've got.
>>689312I'll post some more later.
>>689106thanks, good times
>>678176That's a damn good distraction mate.
>>687990Thank you! I think we will have another thread for the end of this year. Or maybe the end of this year and the start of the next year can be in one thread. I haven't decided yet. I don't know about the date but these days I can only run on weekends.
>>690973Alright, I'll keep an eye on qst and I'll try to roll in the next threads.
Just read all the archives. Soooo good. Rachel is best girl.
>>702994Hurting Charles was....liberating.It felt so good.
>>703195Too bad we couldn't get to this point.
>>703278And now for my favorites.Maybe we should get one of Snape saying "Mr. Apise, I am disappointed."
>>703295The Blue Ribbon of Ravenclaw!The Grim Reaper of the Quidditch Pitch!Millicent the Ribbon!"AAAHH!! It's the Ribbon! Help! HELP!! HE-AWGH!!""I can't shake her! I can't - AARRGH!!""DAMNIT! SHE'S JUST ONE WITCH! KEEP IT-AAAAAAA!!!"
