It's been a couple of days since your little adventure in the castle, Glenn has finally awaken and the teachers let you visit him. He just says he doesn't remember anything at all. He remembers going out for a walk and then suddenly something hit him in the head from behind. Or so he remembers. He stays for a few more days in the hospital wing while you are continuing to attend to your classes. In the meantime you have learned about the magical alphabets, some important historical events in the wizarding world and different types of cauldrons for potions. You still struggle with the Transfiguration class though.You do not see any more of the Goblin and no new victims appear in the hospital wing either. Hogwarts seems calm once again. It's been two weeks since Glenn was attacked and now he is also out of the hospital wing, joining classes with you. Everything more or less seems normal again. There has been only one small article in the Prophet about a mysterious series of attacks on students in Hogwarts but it just seems the journalist tried to gather a story from student gossips and imagination. There has been also no official announcement from the Headmaster.The Quidditch game is coming up in a couple of days against the Gryffindor. You also received a letter from your father, explaining to you that you should not feel pressured or stressed for Quidditch and shouldn't let it interfere with your classes if it starts taking too much of your time.1/2...to the Quidditch....post coming.
>>42996938You head into the patch, completely excited, you ate just a little at the breakfast fearing that you might puke, just like you felt in the Hogwarts Express nearly two months ago.Tim is also with you, you two are wearing your Quidditch robes, blue and bronze, you carry the fierce eagle emblem with half pride half excitement.Anya, Valdis and Glenn all wishes you good luck and they also head to the pitch to sit at the benches and watch the game. They are also waving Ravenclaw scarves to show their support. Most of the students are here watching the game. Slytherin students seems to be supporting a victory for you against the Gryffindor and the Hufflepuff students seems to be favoring Gryffindor against you.You meet with the Captain Anthony and the rest of the team at the changing room. "Okay, people! Do not go crazy! I know you can do this. This is our first match and I want a WIN! Let's show these jungle cats how a real eagle fly!" the team cheers and you feel just a little bit more motivated. "John! Keep your eye on the gold! I know you will make me proud! I never fail to choose the right people to the team!" Anthony tells you before heading out on his broom to the sky.You get on your broom, take a deep breath, and start flying. >I will take the match as a prolonged action with 3 rolls in total. Give me the first roll now. Roll 1d10

>>42997197You are flying around in the pitch. Sometimes watching the game, then realizing you should focus on the Snitch and looking around frantically. You are very excited. You can also see the Seeker of Gryffindor, is not doing so well either. He is just looking around with an empty face.You can see Alba scoring some goals for Gryffindor. The game seems to be in balance with Gryffindor ahead with just a few goals.Roll 1d10

>>42997370Another twenty minutes pass. The Ravenclaw starts attacking aggressively with Anthony leading the Hawkshead Attacking Formation, chasers fly in formation in an arrowhead position and diving between the opposite team, intimidating them to move away from their road. The Gryffindor keeper is helpless against them. Ravenclaw starts scoring in a short amount of time, a lot. The score is almost 120-30 in favor of Ravenclaw. The Ravenclaw team is on fire today. You can understand your captain is really good at this and at leading the team. Then you see it.The Golden Snitch. Flying carelessly up in the air. You start diving up, you have an advantage over the other seeker, a head start. It gets really cold and wet as you go up. Roll 1d10

>>42997702Its called priorities,GlenWe get our priorities straight
>>42997578You hear Gryffindor is issued a foul. Must be a nasty shot from Ravenclaw beater because even you saw with the corner of your eye how fast the Bludger was going. You don't see who it hit. And you don't care right now.You don't care about the cold or the wet. You are fixed on your target. You go up, up, and up. You can hear the buzzing sound of it's small wings now. You come closer and closer, the Snitch, as if senses what you are about to accomplish, tries fly away. Too slow for you. You come closer and reach...and you grab it! The match over. Victory for Ravenclaw for 280 against 50. >A crushing victory.The team members flying towards you with cheers, you can hear the crowd going wild at the pitch, blue flags waving everywhere. The commentator saying something about a "record defeat" for Gryffindor. You realize after all, Quidditch wasn't bad AT ALL.
>>42997702Get stuck in devil's snare without our wand, we'll be glad we made a potion belt. With pouches for,ingredients. Clorofiends beware.
>>42997723How are we just naturally good at everything except for making that one potion?
>>42997723An overwhelming victory for Ravenclaw.
We should join the Kool Kids Klub
>>42997723Hooray! Now we can go read more books!>>42997754Potion mastery has made us overconfident. >>42997719Glenn we be so happy for us, from his hospital bed.
After flying around cheering with your teammates you finally come down. You see they are carrying Alba away, she was the one who got the Bludger. Seems hurt. Quidditch is a dangerous game.You are also quite wet because of the rain. Anya and Glenn are coming towards you cheering "Raven-CLAW! Raven-CLAW!" you hear this chant everywhere. Tim is enjoying himself doing some strange half flips in the air.>Spend your time with fellow Ravens celebrating here and then in the Tower>Leave the pitch to follow Alba to the Hospital Wing>Other

>>42997850>>42997874>>42997880>>42997881>>42997916You continue to celebrate with your fellow Ravenclaws. It is quite a party in the Tower. Food and drinks all around, flying banners and flags, older students casting strange light spells, one student is wearing a jacket that when he puts the cowl on looks like a giant eagle, which startles Cordelia a lot.It is good to have finally some fun times. You see Tim talking to some older girls about the game and looking quite smug. >Spend the party with your friends>Spend time trying to impress new people>Other
>>42998122>>Spend the party with your friends

>>42997554I'm late, but that reminds me of this.
>>42998149>>42998227>>42998253You spend your time in the party with your friends. Even Anya, who never cared much for Quidditch seems excited over the victory. You hear her talking with Valdis about Quidditch rules. "So what actually happens if you catch the Snitch but your team is behind more than 150 points?" she asks curiously. Glenn also seems to had a fast recovery. He doesn't really talking about it and he seems to be enjoying himself. Even the Professor Flitwick comes to the Tower and joins the party just for a while. He congratulate Anthony and the rest of the team members personally. "I want that Quidditch Cup this year!" you hear him saying after a few Butterbeers. As the hour becomes late slowly people leave for their beds, some older students still hangout near the fire, Professor also leaves and you also head for the bed with other guys of the dormitory, feeling really tired. Now you have some options to choose from before we fast forward a week to the Astronomy class. (You also have your potion belt ready now and I forgot to add, Professor Snape wasn't impressed with your new Herbicide potion saying "It is admirable that you try to dedicate your time on the potions more Mr. Apise, try to do it properly in the class next time." )>Choose two:>Study X Class>Research something>Practice spells>Talk with a teacher>Brew a potion>Practice Quidditch>Hang out with your cousin>Chat with someone (Anya, Valdis, Glenn, Tim or Other)>Try to see Alba>Write a letter>Other

>>42998571>>42998603>>42998606>>42998787You decide to study more potions. You spend a few hours everyday reading on potions and potioneering. When you take some time off from your studies you try to see Alba. She is not in the hospital wing. She was hurt but Madame Pomfrey is used to Quidditch injuries so she must have fixed her up quick.Finally you have the chance to talk to her one morning at the breakfast where the students sit mixed. You sit next to her and ask how is she. She looks okay, maybe a bit sad in her blue eyes and tells you she had injured her left arm but she is okay now. Yet you can sense some kind of hurt inside, maybe her pride is hurt? You can see she didn't take the defeat easily.She tries to avoid talking about Quidditch while eating her toast. You can see something even written in the prophet about Hogwarts Quidditch. It seems people still care about it even after they graduate. It also says something about a certain Ludovic "Ludo" Bagman, finally found innocent of being a Death Eather and will return to his job as the Beater of the English national team and will start writing about Quidditch in the Prophet.>Rub the Quidditch in her face>Avoid the subject and talk naturallyPlust you can,>Talk to her about Glenn's prophecy and your little adventure>Other

>>42998937>>Avoid the subject and talk naturally>>Talk to her about Glenn's prophecy and your little adventureShe's a good sort. We can trust her.Make sure there's nobody around first. And be sure to make her promise not to discuss this with anyone.
>>42998972>>42998960>>42998984>>42999002>>42999009You avoid the Quidditch subject and talk about other things. Then you look around to make sure nobody is listening and tell her about the prophecy Glenn had and how you went out to see him at night in the castle and all the other stuff from your adventure.The look on her face changes instantly. You can see some fire is back in her eyes now. She doesn't seem to be down at all. "This is incredible!" she says. "What do you think what that Goblin was doing? And you managed to survive this creature!" she seems excited. You gesture her to be calm and more quiet. She leans in and whispers. "Let's try to catch this monster who attack our friends, what do you say?">Yes! Let's make a plan!>No! Are you crazy? It's too dangerous.>Other
>>42999236>No! Are you crazy? It's too dangerous.
>>42999236>Yes! Let's make a plan!Planning, research, and forethought!That's what we excel at. And being Gryffindor, Alba makes a perfect meatshield for us.
>>42999236>Yes! Let's make a plan!
>>42999236>>No! Are you crazy? It's too dangerous.First, we find out the details. Exactly what's happening, why, and how. THEN we start thinking how to stop it.
>>42999236>Why don't we tell the headmaster?
>>42999293>>42999337>>42999308>>42999314>>42999422>>42999437Give me a consensus.
>>42999604Forgot the trip
>>42999604If it helps, I'd be okay with the plan option if it actually involves making a plan. A real plan, involving planning and forethought long before acting, not a Gryffindor plan.
>>42999635Dubs say yes let's make a plan
>>42999604We could make telling the Headmaster part of the plan, so I change to yes.
>>42999726>>42999737>>42999732You decide to make a plan to find out and possibly capture this monster who hurt your friends. Anya says we should go out where the attacks happened, or the nearby area, set a trap and wait for it to appear. Maybe use a bait.>What do you think?
>>42999899Fuck. Sorry I mean ALBA not Anya...
>>42999899What did she plan for a trap? Us? That's not going to work, let's research something to immobilize somebody.
>>42999899We should do research in the Library on the wounds that were on Glenn's wrist and the symptoms we saw, to figure out what kind of monster could have caused it.Then we can begin planning countermeasures.
>>42999899That is not a plan.Step 1 of the plan - research what we're dealing with and usable means of stopping it.Step 2 of the plan - see step one until we're satisfied we won't get gibbed.Step 3 of the plan: find out what it wants and where it's likely to get it.Step 4 of the plan - need more information.
>>43000006>>42999899tttttoooooo the liiiiiibbbbbrrrraaaarrryyyy!
>>42999974>>43000006She seems much more impulsive than a researching-planning kind of person. "We can just put you or someone else...what was that girl's name? Ah Anya! As a bait. Then we just wait hiding and get the monster when it appears what do you think?">Perfect idea, Alba!>Ermm... I think it's better if we do some research first. >Other
>>42999899Research... whatever the fuck it was called, I can't remember.
>>43000120>Ermm... I think it's better if we do some research first.
>>43000120>>Ermm... I think it's better if we do some research first.Nope. No. This is why Gryffindors get a bad reputation.
>>43000120>Alba, why don't you be the bait if you're so eager to put someone else in danger? I hope you realize that isn't a plan, we need to research what we're dealing with. That way nobody else gets hurt.Wow Alba, dick move.
>>43000120Gryphindors are forbidden from making the plan. We need to research first.
>>43000120>>Ermm... I think it's better if we do some research first. >>Other"Rather enthusiastic about using others as bait, there Alba."
>>43000141>>43000148>>43000172>>43000180>>43000193>>43000202>>43000210"Erm...I think it's better to leave the planning to me Alba. First we need to do some research. I will research the bite marks Glenn had. Meanwhile you can speak with David to get some information. I don't want to put anyone in danger by making them a bait." She tries to cut you, "I don't anyone to be in danger either, John. I was counting on my spell casting skills." You continue as if uninterrupted."Anyway. I also need to talk with Anya and Glenn. Then we can all decide what to do. Agreed?" She nods and answers: "Okay... yeah I will talk with the Slytherin boy... Research sounds okay..." She seems a bit disappointed that she couldn't just dive into the action. "By the way, do you think the goblin is connected with the one who attacked Glenn?" she asks.>No I don't think so>Yes I think so>I have no idea>Other
>>43000344>No I don't think so
>>43000344"It's a possibility that we can't rule out just yet."
>>43000344>>I have no ideaThere are many things I have no idea about. That is part of why we research before we dive head on into the unknown.
>>43000344>She tries to cut you,I assume you wanted to add "off".>No I don't think soWhy would a Goblin be out in the forest? They also wouldn't use a blunt object, they use wandless magic.
>>43000344>Yes I think soI thought the thing with the goblin was the thing attacking people? Unless there are multiple monsters running around.
>>43000571It's Hogwarts, there's always monsters.
>>43000365>>43000419>>43000444>>43000451>>43000571You are also confused on the subject. "I don't know for sure, but it's a possibility. I don't know why would a Goblin be out in the forest or attack people but I am not sure how many monsters are around in this castle running around attacking people either..." Quite confusing.After your chat she leaves to attend to some class. You come back to sit with Anya and Glenn and tell them about your chat with Alba. Tim also joins the conversation. They all seems to agree with you on this and everyone decides to do some research and gather information for the time being. Tim says it's good that you asked Alba because he thinks she is really good at some spells. >Also a question, since John is quite rich, I think it is okay to assume you would spend 10 galleon x every point you have in Spirit to shorten the study times, anyone disagrees?
>>43000743Nope, not a lot to buy at Hogwarts since Fred and George aren't here yet.
>>43000743Yes spend the money on research. Perhaps potions would be best?
>>43000850In case that was confusing I meant definitely spend that cash. Wait it it ten galleons? I think it is one galleon reduces study by 10 hours.
Another week passes with studying and researching. Finally you meet together with the Book Club and talk about the Hobbit. Mary says she enjoyed the book a lot and also tells you that you were really good at the Quidditch match. You feel a bit embarrassed and thank her. Raphael, the Slytherin second grader says he doesn't understand why the wizard in the story didn't cast some other spells to get rid off the Dragon. Or why they didn't fly with broomsticks over the Forest. You just sigh and feel sad that he missed all the point. The older Hufflepuff girl comments on this saying it is difficult for some people in the Wizarding world to grasp how books are written in the Muggle world, especially fiction involving magic. Anya seems to have enjoyed the book as well. The club decides to meet sometime after the Christmas and the book you are required to read is finally a suggestion from Anya, you will read the Animal Farm by George Orwell. She also asks you about the book she gave you at the beginning of the semester and you promise to return it after the Christmas break.After the club while you are walking in the corridor you come across Alba. She tells you about David. "He says he doesn't remember anything. He was taking a walk around the lake. I think he was doing something illegal there but...anyway. Then he says he heard a strange sound and look up and then darkness." She shrugs. "These Slytherins can be up to anything out there... I don't trust his story but... it's what he told me." she speaks with her strange yet not repulsive accent. Anya seems to be heading to library to do some reading and also homework. She asks if you want to join her. And Alba at the same time looks surprised and says "But the Quidditch is about to start! Let's go to watch the game, it's Slytherin vs. Hufflepuff!" sounding really excited.>Go to the library with Anya>Go to watch the Quidditch match with Alba
>>43001037>Go to watch the Quidditch match with AlbaWe must observe the competition, analyze their strengths and weaknesses.
>>43001037>>Go to the library with AnyaQuidditch fun. But work more important.
>>43001037>Go watch the Quidditch Match with Albaknow your opponents, gotta get that cup.
>>43001037>Go to watch the Quidditch match with AlbaBut take a book to read whilst we're there. I mean, you only have to pay attention when when a goal happens or someone catches the snitch.
>>43001037to win at quidditch we must practice flying.to win at life we must go to the library."I have no dog in that fight. Once again to the library!"
>>43001037>>Go to the library with Anya
>>43001037>"But Alba, library, books, Ravenclaw, total nerd."
>>43001128>>43001299>>43001349>>43001359You decide to go to the library. "I need to do this research Alba. You go and you can tell me about it later." She leaves with a clear expression on her face that thinks you two are super weird to miss the match.You reach the library and start first to do your homework and then some research about the attacks. Anya says she will read the Hogwarts: A History book to see if there are any similar incidents happened before in Hogwarts. And you try to identify the bite marks by reading some books about the magical creatures. After a long research session, interrupted briefly when the Quidditch match ended and the shouting, cheering students walk near the Library (you hear that Hufflepuff has won) you finally you find some information. You can't say for sure what kind of creature bite Glenn but you are now sure that he was bitten in that exact point for the purpose of draining his blood. You can also see some similarities with the bite marks of Glenn and some creatures in the books that drink other creatures' blood. You are starting to feel afraid. Anya tells you she couldn't find anything yet and needs to narrow her research. "How is Christmases in the wizarding world by the way?" she asks suddenly with curiosity. You two are almost alone in the library with only one other older Slytherin boy reading some old dusty tome at a table at the back.>Let's focus on the subject Anya>Talk to her about Christmas and traditions in the Wizarding World >Other
>>43001668>Talk to her about Christmas and traditions in the Wizarding World
>>43001668>>Talk to her about Christmas and traditions in the Wizarding WorldNo harm in sharing. We can read while we talk.
>>43001668>Talk to her about Christmas and traditions in the Wizarding World More importantly what are the Christmas traditions in Transylvania! (Like do vampires give gifts? What should we get them? Steaks? Stakes?! What I'm saying is can we research Vampires yet?)
I figured it out.The vampire is trying to AWAKEN, MY MASTERS!
>>43001716>>43001724>>43001729>>43001870You talk to her about how it goes in the Wizarding World during Christmas. She seems very interested. You realize she never had the chance to experience a lot of things and traditions in the wizarding world because she is a muggle born. You feel a bit sad.>Invite Anya to your house for the Christmas>Just tell her a bit more about it>Other
>>43002072>Just tell her a bit more about itAs hilarious as it would be for our mother to see us bringing back a mudblood, I don't think we've got the right attitude to invite someone we've only known a few months back to our home for an extended period of time.
>>43002072>>OtherMake sure she's aware of the less savoury aspects of traditional wizarding culture. If she's still interested,>>Invite Anya to your house for the Christmas
>>43002072>>43002124It'd be like bringing the new world savage back home to the Queen. She could speak in her funny language and do tricks for us.Also we are 11, so>ask mother first about>Invite Anya to your house for the Christmas
>>43002072>Just tell her a bit more about it>>43002155We're probably too sheltered pureblood for that.
>>43002072>Just tell her a bit more about it
>>43002124>>43002217>>43002231You continue to just tell her a bit more about it. She then tells you about how they do it in her house. "We are actually planning a trip this year. Since it's the first time I was away from my parents they decided to make this nice Christmas trip to spend time together. We are going to this small town called Tallinn. I think it's in Estonia or something like this. I hope it will be cool!" You two spend a bit more time talking about Christmas and stuff. Then you tell Anya about the bite marks and the blood drinking parts. First thing she thinks is about vampires but then she laughs. "I think it's impossible, no?" You tell her it's quite possible but maybe not. Since you know a lot about magical creatures you tell her there are many other beasts that like drinking blood and are not vampires.After research you head back up to the Tower and meet with the others. You tell them about the blood drinking and all. Glenn looks quite pale after this discussion and seems afraid. But doesn't remember anything. Tim is more interested in the Quidditch match as he tells you how the Hufflepuff seeker got the Snitch away from the Slytherin seeker. It's the fourth weekend of November now. 1/2
>>43002378Wait. Isn't this like, when Potter is a baby? I can't imagine any British parent taking their kid to Soviet Estonia.
>>43002562her parents are communists.confirmed
>>43002378I have an idea of what we might be facing and why Glenn didn't see it.
>>43002378It's the potions class that is shared with the Slytherin. The classroom for a change is organized differently. All the desks are now for one person only and standing apart from each other. Professor Snape talks slowly and explains he wants to see how much you have really learned in this one semester and wants you all to brew a potion for him. "The one who gets it the best will receive from me a vial of Unctuous Unction." You know that is a potion that makes the person who drinks it thinks the person who give the potion to him is his best friend for a short time."Now you are required to brew a Forgetfulness Potion." Roll 1d10
>>43002607Screw this wizarding crap, we have to stop our friend becoming a commie!
>>43002562Maybe they have a family or business connection. This should be during perestroika? Plus Tallinn is a very nice little town...although I'm not sure I'd go in December.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>43002633I FORGOT HOW TO DO IT
>>43002562Haha damn I actually forgot about this. Either she remembers the place wrong or she has some strange family connections.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>43002633
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>43002633Come on, don't fuck up!
>>43002666>some strange family connections.MI6 and KGB double agents/moles?
>>43002653I think it's quite nice in Christmas time. Feels like Hogsmead.
>>43002670Huh. I seem to be rolling better than usual recently.Something horrible will happen soon.
>>43002729Dead by dawn.
>>43002670It takes you about 45 minutes of pure concentration to brew your potion. You are always thinking of the Professor's words: "do it in the classroom" It almost echoes in your brain. You want to do it perfectly to show him. You WILL do it perfectly. You check with your book and your potion looks and smells exactly like it's described in the text. You look around to see Anya struggling with it a bit, Tim and Valdis looks completely lost just adding random things to their cauldron. David and Glenn seem okay at it. Another Slytherin boy you only know as Nigel seems good too. But yours is...perfect.Professor says "It's time." in a gloomy voice almost announcing the end of the world. Comes checking every table and finally he comes to you. "Well, well... 10 points to Ravenclaw, after all you seem to understand a bit about the Potioneering Mr. Apise" he says with a emotionless face. Anya cheers for you after the class is dismissed and Professor Snape gives you a small, round vial full of a strange purplish liquid.>You have learned about the Forgetfulness Potion>You have gained a vial of Unctuous Unction
>>43002821Snape is so sad...We need to become EVEN BETTER at potions! So good that sempaiSnape will smile!
You also meet with Alba after a class and tell her about all the things you managed to find out.

>>43003418>"Hail Comrade Stalin! Workers of the world unite!"
>>43003079>>43003091>>43003306You spend your time studying more on the Defence Against the Dark Arts class. You practice your spells and also work on to come up with strategies and tactics in the case of a situation like the one with the Doxy. On a saturday night, mid-december you are attending your last class in this semester. It's Astronomy. It is unluckily a cloudy night tonight, so the class will be spent on memorizing names of the planets' moons in our solar system, different names of the stars and constellations and a map of the moon is also present in the class to identify major landmarks.The professor randomly asks students about the names of the moons in our solar system. She asks you to name five moons of Jupiter.Roll 1d10.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>43003669
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>43003669Europa, Io, Ganymede, Thebe, Callisto
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>43003669Europa, Io, Ganymedes, Callisto and Amalthea
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>43003669
>>43003418 anyacommie.pngfixed that for you.
>>43003719>I think Thebe was named after this year but wizards must be more skilled in astronomy than muggles and they would be just swapping the names muggles use and make them think it was always named like this.The professor nods and smiles. "Correct, Mr Apise." Then continues to other students. She asks to Tim to name the two moons of Mars, he only names one. Then she continues to ask Valdis to name five moons of Uranus, to her surprise and delight he continues to name at least twelve, in order of size before she stops him and says it is enough. "10 points to Ravenclaw!"Tim whispers something funny about Valdis always being a failure in other classes except this one. You don't hear well but everyone laughs.The class is dismissed late at night, everyone excited, comes back to the Ravenclaw Tower, prepares bags and everyone is getting ready to leave for the Christmas holiday. You also prepare all your stuff and you are completely ready to leave in the morning. You sleep a short sleep, waking up early to a cloudy dark day. Get all your stuff ready. Excited to wear your Ravenclaw robes for going back home! Say your goodbyes to everyone.>Anything special you want to say or do before leaving Hogwarts for 2 weeks?>To Apise Manor!

>>43004309You prepare a basic trap like this in one of the corridors of the castle, hoping it will be intact during the holidays just before leaving.>To the Apise Manor!Post coming.
After one semester of being away from home you feel strange to come back. You feel as if you have changed. As if life itself has also changed. Yet everything looks the same as before here. While looking like changed at the same time. It is difficult to describe your feelings. You feel strange to think your parents life was continuing here while you had all those moments, classes, Quidditch and adventures in Hogwarts. Suddenly you feel sad and miss your new friends, even miss your cold dormitory room with snoring Valdis. Then you think about your parents. How you thought about them when you were feeling alone or sad or in danger in Hogwarts. And you feel grateful to have them. You can see and smell that your favorite foods have been cooked for your return. Father informs you that there will be a small family reunion with cousins, uncles and aunts in the Christmas dinner. You are glad that your cousin Alfred will be coming here otherwise you would be bored to death.Cordelia also seems happy at home. Flying around, smelling many flowers in the gardens of the manor. The grounds are slightly white with the light snowing. Strangely your mother is in the kitchen instead of ordering something to the house-elves. Says it's a special drink she has learned from the animal-handler who sold you Cordelia taught her that's called Glögi.After the usual basic chitchat, eating and drinking and talking about some classes the "interrogation" starts. Your mother also seems quite proud of your achievement as a seeker in the Quidditch Team. Your father seems more interested to know about your potioneering skills. They just ask you one thousand questions like "how is this professor? how is that class? is this corridor still smells like this? is this classroom still has this random damage we inflicted in the school? did you meet with any nice girls? how are your friends? where are they from?" The questions seems endless. 1/2
>>43004594You answer to most of their questions. You choose to not tell them about the attacks and your little adventure. You don't want them to get worried and then overkill you with even more questions.You have the chance to talk with them on anything you want.>Talk with your mother about Quidditch>Talk with them about your aunt Luisa>Talk with them about classes you are good at>Talk with your father about your uncle and cousin>Talk with them about your friends>Talk with them about the girls you met>Talk with them about your professors>Other
>>43004783>Talk with your mother about Quidditch>Talk with them about classes you are good at>Talk with them about your professors
>>43004783>>Talk with your mother about Quidditch>>Talk with them about classes you are good at>>Talk with them about your friends
>>43004783>Talk with your mother about Quidditch>Talk with them about your professors>Talk with them about classes you are good at
>>43004783Ask about the weirdest stuff that happened to them during their years at hogwarts.
>>43004783>Talk with them about the girls you metWe could bring up that a friend of ours is muggle-born and interested in wizarding customs.And check whether it would it be out of the question to invite them to stay sometime during summer/next Christmas?
>>43004783>>Talk with them about the girls you met>>Talk with your mother about Quidditch>>Talk with them about classes you are good at>>Talk with them about your professors
>>43004801>>43004815>>43004833>>43004855>>43004884You talk with your mom about Quidditch, while your dad is more interested in eating some food on the table. She tells you some really memorable matches from her time. "Dromeda hit this one Gryffindor boy so bad, he had to stay in the hospital wing for two weeks after the match... that was our best year as the team..." your father interrupts suddenly. "Oh dear, did you invited her to the dinner?" She sighs and just says "We can talk about it later, Edward." Then you talk a bit about the classes you are good at with them. Like the Potions, Herbology and the DADA. Your father seems quite impressed with your potion making skills. He is even surprised to hear about the small reward you got from Professor Snape. Your mother seems a bit cold when you mention his name though. Then you continue to talk about more on professors. They know some of the professors like the Professor Binnks from their days and some of them from other places in the wizarding world. Your mom says she knows the Flying teacher Hooch quite well.Then you open the subject about your friends and about the girls you have met in Hogwarts. You tell them about the people in the book club and then about your own roommates and classmates. You say you have become good friends with a girl named Anya. Your mother asks about her family and you say she is a muggle born and also if it's okay to invite her at a later date so she can see how we celebrate stuff in wizard world. Your father laughs and says it's an excellent idea and your mother smiles and says "why not?" You also tell them about a girl from somewhere called Catalonia and that she is a good Quidditch player. Your mother seems intrigued and she laughs that maybe you will be visiting her in her country.Then you ask them about the most weird stuff happened to them in their time in Hogwarts.1/2
>>43005297Your father thinks a bit then says it was probably the time that involved some strange love potions and some girls but then he stops abruptly looking in a bit pain "ah I mean... it was my History classes." Then your mother looking a bit more satisfied, says one year a group of Merpeople tried to attack the Slytherin Dungeon from the lake, trying to break into the castle. And that they had an encounter with one or two of them.
>>43004783Talk to them about how we want Snape-sempai to notice us.
>Finishing soon for today.After all the chat and eating they kind of finally "leave you alone". Before going to bed your mother comes to you room. "Let me give you your present John" she says smiling, you remember about her surprise in the letter she wrote to you. She takes a package and gives it to you. You slowly unwrap it to reveal a small red ruby gem. You look confused. "What is this Mother?"She responds quietly. "It is a Gem of Location. In the castle, on the sixth floor, near the portrait called "the Reading Man" there is a small opening on the wall. When you touch the wall with the gem, the wall opens up slightly like a door and it reveals a small room that as far as I know nobody in the Hogwarts knows. Especially not that stupid Squib Filch. Don't tell your father" She winks.>Wow thanks a lot mom!>Thanks mom>But isn't it illegal?>Useful I guess...>Other
>>43005648Dear, anon. that's just you. The rest of us, and the MC aren't 13 year old girls.>>43005465>can we go out flying with our mom? Maybe practice a little?
>>43005685>Wow thanks a lot mom!
>>43005685>>Wow thanks a lot mom!Secret tunnel!Secret. Tunnel.
>>43005700If the weather gets better during your stay, it's possible.
>>43005685God damn, I thought we were gonna get /ss/'dLeading me on like that.She even came to our room at night.So close.But so far.
>>43005915Dude come on it's your mom ffs.
>>43005958I would bang mrs apise in a heartbeat, mom or not. Maybe even harder if she was related to me, thinking about it.
>>43005915>>43005958>>43005978I love the fact that for someone, somewhere, this is their introduction to the board.Welcome to tg, ladies and gentlemen. Where this is normal.At least in BCQ it made sense. Ah, Mrs Speltin.
>>43006147Waitashit, that actually ended up happening?
>Thank you ALL for joining people it was a fun 9 hours. I enjoyed it. Hopefully we will continue soon. I will be lurking a bit more for comments/questions/etc. We will be returning with the Christmas dinner next time.
>>43005958I dealt with this in SLQ, it clears up. Also, I'm going to take a stab in the dark at the creature. The wound is on the wrist, a low part of the body, so I'm ruling out tall monsters, it isn't a vampire. Glenn was most likely lured to the woods, so it involved some sort of magic. The bloodletting rules out most other short creatures but one in my mind, conveniently mentioned in the third book. I hypothesize we are dealing with a Redcap. Here's a wiki article on them.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redcap
