Default Great Lake


Located just south of the castle is a large body of water known as the Great Lake or the Black Lake. This is where the first years encounter the school for the first time when the Groundskeeper takes them there by boat. After seven years they will leave the castle, their individual house and their home behind as they sail back across the Great Lake to embark on new adventures.

If you decide to dip your toes in the water, be careful of the many magical creatures inhibiting the lake that might mistake a little student’s toe for a tasty treat. For in the Great Lake lives everything from merpeople to grindylows. Bartholomew Henry, the Giant Squid, however is not interested in nibbling on toes, but would much rather have someone tickle his tentacles while he soaks up some sun.

Why don’t you follow his lead and do the same? Do some homework in the sun heated grass, take that well deserved nap before Ancient Runes or catch up on that reading. Enjoy your time at the Great Lake!

Default Slytherin activity, hi, come post
Sardines ♥ BHB ♥ Dallie ♥ Grumpy ♥ MY SUN AND STARS ♥ i love julia

It was the beginning of term and Piers was in rather high spirits. He had the grounds as his backyard, meaning his view every morning, day and night was perfect. The sound of squabbling teenagers didn't really complete it, but he would take it.

This fine afternoon, just a couple days after the opening feast, Piers was setting up a few giant spiderwebs along some trees that lined the lake. After posting an announcement for his dear Slytherins, it was now time for a little snake activity where they could all meet and have fun together. Thankfully, the last bits of Summer were still lingering, so the sun was out and the air was light - not too cool and not too warm.

While he waited for the prefects and the members of the Slytherin house, Piers was seen using his wand to stick previously mentioned spider webs. Four giant spider webs were set up. It may seem peculiar, but... all would make sense in due time.

Several feet away from the spider web set up, there was a table of refreshments laid out. Cookies, crackers, cheese and cold lemonade were ready for any of the students that showed up.

The webs looked amazing and Vita smiled to herself as she approached, hands tucked in her pockets. She was dressed for comfort and ready for some fun, hoping the other Slytherins would be up for a bit of a challenge. She liked meet and greets and all, but getting to actually work as a team always helped you learn about the people around you way better than making small talk did.

"Hey Professor, everything looks great." She just hoped everyone showed. "Anything else you need me to do?" Like, she could be a taste tester. Those cookies looked pretty delicious.

Austin saw the announcement on the notice board. So he headed tpbthe Great Lake. Socialising with people made him exhausted but he likes free food. When he got there, he saw the charms professor, he thinks he is, setting up. Austin smiled a bit and waved at him and the other student.

Patrick walked down toward the lake. His walking boot heavy on his leg. Never the less he made his way down to the lake in his sweatpants and t-shirt. Comfy clothing to make sure that the activity would go as planned. He seriously hoped his house mates would show... he was excited so they should be too, right?

Spotting the head of house he walked over to the webs, “looks great Professor. You’ve done a great job.” He smiled as his arms waived around the trees with webs spun between them. He seriously couldn’t believe that he was a part of such a great group. Now he just had to hope that his housemates liked the activity.

Looking around, his hair moving with the wind, he took note that his counterpart Vita was already there. He nodded at her and gave a small hello greeting to her. He figured he shouldn’t give her all the attention since the goal was to meet all the Slytherin house members. He saw Austin was there and nodded, “Hey Austin, glad to see you could make it.” he had learned by now that Austin didn’t typically speak but he was a great kid and would likely do amazing things In his time.

Austin was eating a cracker and cheese sandwich when he noticed the sound of a heavy foot. He turned to see Patrick who addressed him.
He gave him a friendly wave.

Kaiser was not drawn to the 'fun outdoor activity' so much as he was to the promise of refreshments. He strolled out to the grounds at a leisurely pace (in his new uniform, sans robes, because he was kind of lacking in other clothes at the moment) with his hands shoved into his pockets. It seemed like he was still early by the time he arrived down at the Great Lake, judging by how many had so far turned up.

Sooooo... giant spider webs, then? That was... cool. He supposed. Or it could be completely uncool, which actually didn't matter at all to him. What did matter? The food.

"Hi," Kaiser said distractedly to everyone and no-one in particular, making a beeline for the table of refreshments. A large handful of cookies was slipped straight into his pocket, so quickly and so sneakily you would have been forgiven for not noticing, and he scooped up two full stacks of crackers, one for each hand, which left him no hands to pick up any lemonade with. After a moment's pause, he balanced one cracker stack onto the second in one hand, and with the other, retrieved his drink. There. Sorted.

Satisfied with his haul (for now), Kaiser drifted away from the refreshments table and found himself near Patrick. He gave him a nod in greeting, and regarded the others. Other prefect, Vita something - he always remembered her first name, it was an Italian word, see. A first year he'd not heard speak yet, or maybe he had, and just hadn't paid any attention. And the new Head of House, unknown entity and reason to be reasonably cautious for now. While eyeing him carefully, Kaiser used his teeth to take a cracker from the top of the stack in his left hand and manoeuvred the entire thing into his mouth. Crunch.

Austin glared at Kaiser. Save some for the rest of us. He sighed and took three cookies and a glass of lemonade. Austin started walking around with cookies in hand and his drink.

LISTEN it's pronounced 'jif' pineapples BELONG on pizza milk comes BEFORE cereal & also it's "CHarrie". amen.

Nina Castillo wasn't particularly keen on the idea of a Slytherin House Get-Together. There were very few people she got on with in her own house. Or perhaps to be more accurate, there were very few girls she got along with in her house and that was reason enough to skip the day's activity. She did, however, want to make a good impression on their newest Charms Professor and Head of House. He had a pretty face, did he know? He probably did. Most pretty men weren't unaware, they were quite the opposite.

It was only when she more properly approached the lake that a desire to immediately turn around kicked in. This time it wasn't due to the company present because she didn't have a problem with any of those who were already here. No Eloise or Karlin in sight, which was quite promising. Kaiser was always good company. And the others, she hadn't formed an opinion on as of yet because she had hardly interacted with them at all. Only time would tell. What did make her uneasy was the presence of giant spider webs.

She approached the crowd with hesitance, immediately walking towards their Professor. "Um Professor," she looked at the man, before her eyes (full of worry and conCERN) immediately flew back up to one of the webs. "There won't be any spiders joining us today, will there?" Because if spiders were joining then Nina Castillo was not. Periodt. She didn't like creatures of ANY variety.

"No spiders, but you will get a chance to get up close and personal with those webs," Vita offered helpfully from her place by their head of house, observing the younger girl with a hint of a smile. Was she afraid of spiders, then? The seventeen year old hadn't considered that might be a problem for some when planning this whole thing with Patrick and Professor Fuller-Thompson.

"Don't worry," She added to the first year who seemed less than happy about Kaiser's grabby hands. "There's more than enough cookies for everyone." They were pretty amazing. Perhaps she'd be taking some back to the dorm when this was all done. Studying was forever making her want to eat.

Austin finished the rest of his three cookies. He went up to mystery boy and Patrick. He then took a cookie from Kaiser's haul and started to eat it.

Kaiser caught sight of that glare, he did, and he responded to it with a simple scrunching of his nose. Honestly, he'd had to deal with much worse than a grumpy eleven year old, so this didn't phase him at all.

In fact, what the kid next didn't bother him too much either, though Kaiser did raise his eyebrows of the sheer audacity of the first year, to come over and take a cookie from right out of his pocket. Not that Kaiser had much of a moral high ground when it came to taking things out of other people's pockets. Ahem.

Swallowing his mouthful of cracker, Kaiser transferred his cup of lemonade to the crook of his arm so that his right hand was free, and took his large handful of cookies (now minus one) out from his pocket again. Then, not troubling to be subtle, he licked them. Every single one of them. Just because. "Mmm."

Austin gave him a pointed look. Really?. At this point, Austin took another cookie out of his own pocket and started eating it as if nothing had happened.

Oh, good, there were his two Prefects. Vita and Patrick. Was it just him or did they look YOUNG to be Prefects? Though the last time he was here was thirteen years ago... Perhaps he was just getting too old.

"Hello there," he said cheerfully to Vita as she arrived. Did he need any help? "No, I'm just about done. Just make sure everyone gets something to eat." There was no need to be shy about eating refreshments.

As Piers finished sticking up the webs to different tree branches, he saw a quiet first year arrive, to whom he gave a small smile. Then a few others arrived, to which he also said hello to. He didn't strike up too much conversation though, because he was focused on his webs and this was also more for THEM than it was for him.

As for the spiders, though... Piers chuckled and pocketed his wand. "No, no. This activity does not involve spiders." Piers liked a good prank, but he wasn't THAT mean.

Looking around, Piers counted the few heads that had arrived at their activity. "Well," he said, directing his thoughts towards his two Prefects. "Why don't we wait a few more minutes for a couple more to arrive and then I'll let you two introduce the activity." Did that sound good to them? Because it sounded good to him.

And with that, Piers grabbed a cup of lemonade, reached into his pocket and pulled out a small, canvas and metal mess than suddenly unraveled into lawn chair. Ah. Perfect.

Gunnar wasn't exactly big on "bonding activities" but he did like to be outside and he could always eat. And so, he headed down towards the lake for the Slytherin get-together.

"Professor," he nodded towards their new head of house, not knowing him well at all yet. But his eyes soon fell onto the extra large spiderwebs hanging nearby. "Are these for climbing or are we expecting some eight-legged guests?" There were acromantulas in the forest still, right? Or maybe Fuller just really liked Halloween decorations.

Anyway, the main reason he was here was the food, and he headed towards the refreshment table next. "Hey, guys," he offered a general greeting to all those assembled before reaching for some food.

Wait.... hold up. Did that first year just take a cookie from Kaiser's pocket? If he had done that to Gunnar, he wouldn't be able to use his hand for a week. "Relax, kid," he told the first year. "There's plenty here for everyone."

"Mate." He couldn't help the light laughter that escaped his lips as his dorm mate proceeded to lick the cookies, apparently as an attempt to keep anyone else from stealing his pocketed cookies. But as for Gunnar, he'd start off with some cheese and crackers, making his own little sandwiches out of them.

Kaiser only smiled back at the first year, as he stuffed his handful of cookies back into his pocket, also as if nothing had happened. He retrieved his drink from the crook of his arm and took a sip of it, then grinned across at Gunnar.

"I'm just officially claiming them," he said to his dormmate in fluent German, switching languages as he often tended to do when they spoke with each other. "In case anyone gets any other ideas."

Anyway, Kaiser was starting to get curious about those spider web things. He'd mostly come for the food and, now that he had said food, was starting to wonder if that meant he had committed himself to whatever this activity was. Casting a glance across at the webs that had been slung between the trees, Kaiser picked up another couple of crackers from his stack with his teeth and crunched on them.

... While Nina was relieved to hear that there wouldn't be spiders, her Prefect's words raised her skepticism even more. Up close and personal? That did not sound very promising. Especially because the possibility that they would be asked to climb all over the webs was far too great. Surely Kaiser would take no issue to that, but as for Nina? This wasn't a mandatory activity, was it?

Though all of this was just speculation. Hopefully they'd learn that the webs were for study. "Good," she replied to both their Head of House and the Prefect after quite some time. Her mind had been awfully preoccupied with all the conclusions she had been jumping to. And while she was still brainstorming possibilities, the interaction between the one, young boy and Kaiser had not gone unnoticed. While she was slightly disgusted by the action he took in licking his remaining cookies, Nina was rather amused.

She lingered beside the whole lot of them, attempting to hide an amused grin. Lest anyone know that she found the whole exchange entertaining. She was far beyond silly things like this. She was a lady. Duh. The german did, however, peak her interested.

Patrick was watching everyone arrive with a relaxed stance. He greeted Kaiser with a head nod and a brief hello before shoving his hands in his sweatpants pockets. He wondered how much longer they should wait before others would show up. Taking his mind off where his housemates were he noticed Austin grabbing cookies from Kaiser and heard Gunnar mention enough to go around. Patrick shuddered a bit watching Kaiser lick the cookies. Now that was a line he just couldn’t cross.

He heard Vita mention to Nina that there would be no spiders coming along today. He figured most of his classmates would be glad there were no spiders. His eyes watched as Nina as she relaxed knowing there would be no spiders.

“Alright, well let me tell you what we’ll be doing today.”
He clapped his hands together and grinned. Stepping closer to the web, his walking boot pressing into the ground more than his shoe. “The goal of this activity is to get to know your housemates better than you did before. So we’re going to be going through the web in teams of two, you want to get your entire team through the web first. So pick your teams!” He smiled as he clapped his hands again.

He figured that Vita or Pierson-Fuller would direct the students further. He just needed to coral them so far. He was good at that. He had done it all last term with his quidditch team. Now he would do it as Prefect and he would be remembered for it. He flipped his head to get the hair out of his face ready to get this activity going.


OOC: Hey you all put yourselves in two groups just be sure to label it the first go around so people can easily see who you are paired with.

Austin shrugged at the other guy's words when he said "enough to go around. He went and got a cup of lemonades then. As he silently drank the cup, they were starting to move on. Oh. Partners? Austin raised his hand. He needed a partner.

Rose was walking to the great lake. Sipping a mocha latte she had made herself in the kitchens this morning. She wanted to get used to her surroundings. So she took a little stroll around the school grounds. She was beginning to get tired so she sat on a large empty rock close to the lake. Still sipping her coffee not paying attention to anyone around her.

Slytherin Snakes--Starting Team at Web 1
elephant-astic•wanderlust•stay in the ninedaaays the original Taco Belle•look at the flowers✿

Oh good, they were starting. Vita was excited. She liked a challenge, even if there wasn't a trophy involved. Bragging rights could be just as nice sometimes.

When Patrick was finished, Vita stepped up to add on to what he'd said already. "Now the webs are sticky, just like real spider webs would be. If a teammate gets stuck on the way through, they're stuck for the rest of the activity and won't count towards your total score. That means you want to avoid that at all costs!" Sounded easy enough, right? Only... "The second thing is that every time a teammate goes through an opening, that opening is out of play for the rest of the activity. Considering this, you might want to consider the size of everyone on your team before picking openings!" Just saying.

"We'll give everyone a few minutes to pick a team and then we'll start. Remember, there are four webs, so each team will use one." Maybe then, Professor Fuller-Thompson could give the go-ahead and keep time. "I'll start with team 1 over at this web. You can join my team, if you'd like." She beckoned Austin over and waited for the others to start dividing up.


OOC: Hey guys, just to clarify:

-Snakes will divide up into four teams, one at each giant web. If more people come to RP, they can jump on to any team!
-Team to get the most team members through the web in the allotted time will win
-The web is STICKY, so this will factor in! It shouldn't be a breeze to get through!
-Openings in the web vary in size and each opening can only be used once!
-Team member that's attempting to get through a hole should LABEL which opening they're going through at the top of the post! The higher openings will require help from teammates to reach! Picture of web setup in Sarah's first post here

Have fun! We'll start shortly!

Default slytherin activity - web 2

Nina certainly hadn't escaped Kaiser's notice. Though he had no way of knowing her thoughts on the whole cookie debacle, he did notice her lingering nearby and flashed her a smile and just the shadow of a wink. He liked to make a conscious effort to include her in things, even if that just meant a smile here and there. It seemed especially necessary during a house gathering, for reasons.

As for this activity... Get to know each other better...? Kaiser wasn't so sure he liked the sound of that. He liked being an unknown entity, and wasn't too keen on the idea of being known by others just because they shared a house. On the other hand, he didn't really see how this activity would help reveal anything significant, so... maybe it wouldn't be so bad. He would have much preferred it if they were climbing the webs, however.

Kaiser looked more than a little dubious as he wandered over to the second web, still working his way through his stack of crackers, trying to finish them off before he needed to get started on this... web... business.

"What about you, sir?" Kaiser called over to the professor, eyeing that lawn chair of his. Was he joining in, or was spectating a legitimate option?

Patrick felt like it may be a force to get them interested in the team building exercise. He smiled as Vita moved to the first web. His eyes tracked the movement of Kaiser moving to web number two. He was surprised that Kaiser was going to actually participate in the activity. Patrick always got the feeling that he would rather. Be alone.

He moved himself over toward web three, grabbing a drink as he clunking walked along. He was fairly certain that he would be a hindrance but figured he had to try, being a prefect and all. “I’ll be over here with web 3.” He turned and looked at the teams forming at the other two webs.

First there was one unicorn, then two. They were followed by two more - one barely more than a foal. They trotted through the early morning fog to munch on the grasses and other herbs on the far side of the lake. It looked like they had just come out of the forbidden forest.

Early morning risers are the only ones who will see them. This is a very rare sight. Rarely do unicorns ever venture this far out of the woods.

Hanna really didn't enjoy mornings. But she had made a more conscious effort to get outside and enjoy a brisk half hour walk around a new area of the grounds. Today was by the lake, even though it was a bit foggy and that alone would usually have kept Hanna inside. She stopped to stretch and yawn, and then stopped.

Was that a unicorn? Her eyes felt like bursting from their sockets. Yes, that was a unicorn. No, THREE unicorns! Hanna didn't know the unicorns usually came out of the woods. Was this normal? No, surely not. And she was a little scared, but stayed as still as she could to keep from scaring them.
