Ravenclaw Common Room

Credits: Magical Soul


High up in the top-most reaches of the Castle is a tower dedicated to Ravenclaw House. You come across the entrance in the form of a door on the 7th floor without a doorknob or a keyhole but a bronze knocker shaped like the head of an eagle. If, and only if, you answer the riddle that the eagle presents you correctly, you may gain entrance to the Ravenclaw Common Room. Hey, there's a reason that Ravenclaw is the house for those with brains.

Upon entering the Common Room you see a number of things but mostly you see the floor to ceiling windows that span around the airy, wide and circular room. Beyond their panes you can see what looks like all of Hogwarts' campus and the majestic mountain range beyond. One sweeping look through them and you can see the Forbidden Forest, Quidditch Pitch, The Greenhouses, the Black Lake, and even the shimmering light from the windows in Hogsmeade. At nighttime, the glass reveals the starry night beyond. The walls are covered in blue and bronze silk hangings and the midnight blue carpet covering the floor is decorated with stars just as the domed ceiling.

Placed on the centre of the curved wall is a large fireplace with plenty of navy blue sofas and armchairs placed around it as well as a few book cases and tables. They are there for students to lounge at, as they work on homework, socialize or just relax and enjoy the view between lessons. On a crowded night in the common room the fire place is a good meeting spot if you want to find someone to engage in a rowdy game of Gobstones or plan a party with.

Along the wall you entered there is the Announcements Board where all things will be posted regarding school events, lessons, and homework as well as the Study Tables that are provided for a more structured setting for Ravenclaws to do what Ravenclaws do best. The Grey Lady, the House ghost of Ravenclaw tends to visit this spot especially every now and then. And last but not least, to the right of where the impressive statue of Rowena Ravenclaw herself stands, is the staircase leading to the dormitories. Once you ascend these stairs, going to the right will take you to the ones allotted for the girls and the left will lead you to the ones reserved for the boys. Come in, relax, have fun and make yourselves at home.

Welcome to Ravenclaw, the home of the eagles!

Potions HW #1 Post 1 Finding a Partner
 
Melek came down the stairs from the girls' part of the dormitory. She was carrying her parchment, her quill, a vial of emotional change potion (she had added a half of a handful of ferret fur so that it would cause excitement, of course) and a vial of the base so to give her test subject the chance of an antidote. She scanned the room, trying to find a partner to test it on so that she can do the homework. She spotted a first year boy and smirked. She went over, "Melek, Seventh Year... do you want the honor of being my guinea pig for the potions homework?" She waved the vial in front of him and waited for him to respond.

Tyler was just minding his own business when suddenly a much older girl came down and asked if he would be her guinea pig for potions. Oh no! potions! that thing could be anything! Wait! hold up! Not even a hello? learn some manners lady! Maybe he will have to teach her some later on. "Tyler.. first year. Guinea pig?" He took the vial from her and looked at her suspiciously. "What is this vial contain? and what does it do?" he was not going to dance around the common room barking like a dog if that was what she was after. Actually that would be funny, he would have to see if there was actually a potion for making someone do that, would be hilarious! Besides he had a little potion of his own as well, taking out the little vial.

Mel giggled and smiled, "Nice to meet you, Tyler... I like your name!" Melek nodded, "Yeah, I need to have you try a potion for me... it is suppose to alter your emotion depending on what ingredient you add last... I added ferret fur last so it should make you excited... I mean if that seems to hard for a firstie like you then I could always go ask someone else." She giggled and waved the vial in front of him again then offered it to him. "I just need to take a few notes of your actions then you can have the antidote that is in my bag... do we have a deal?" She smiled sweetly at him, "And maybe i will give you candy if you help me with this."

Wait! did she actually giggle? so she can giggle and laugh, didn't seem that way before. She liked his name? he didn't know that. Has she secretly drunk his happy potion or something already! Or maybe she was just naturally happy like that, oh dear he wondered what would happen if he gave her the happy potion. "Er thanks Melek, nice to meet you too. Your name isn't too bad either" no.. it was quite unusual. Excited potion! Please he could act excited without the potion, he was a very good actor too! Hard? for him? never!! He hoped it wasn't anyway "No.. No.. No I can do it!" he hoped he could afterall he hadn't had much experiences with drinking potions so he wasn't sure. He took the vial from her, and picked up his vial.. "Here is mine for you" he gave her a nice grin and almost dropped it at the mention of candy "There is candy involved?? Yes please!! 2 bags full and you have a deal!!" oh he was so going to enjoy this potion thing. I mean who could say no to candy!! it was candy!! there was just something awesome about it!! He looked at the vial she gave him and then looked at her "If we have a deal I will .. go ahead and drink your potion.. deal?" he hoped she wouldn't back out now he was just looking forward to the candy that he would be eating later on.

She cringed, "I actually hate my name... though if you wish, you could call me Melek... but you could actually call me Mel..." Melek offered and looked at him, "Oh you can, can you?" She nodded and made sure to catch the vial that he almost dropped. "Wooooah, calm down there, Tyler... you didnt even drink the potion... and you are this excited?" She looked at him and tilting her head. Melek sat down and took out her parchment and quill so that she can take notes. "Two bags of candy and me taking your potion in exchange for you taking my potion..." Mel nodded, "Deal... now can you hurry up and take it already so that I can get my notes? Then after I get my notes, I will give you the antidote which you will drink then I will take your... um... what feeling is this?" She gestured to the vial that contained his potion. "And then you can take notes and then give me the antidote which then i will give you the two bags of candy that are in my trunk up in the girls' dorm... deal? deal..." She nodded and watched him, waiting for him to take the potion. Her quill was poised over her parchment and her eyes were staring at him intently.

She hated her name? that was interesting usually girls liked their name. "Oh I see.. Mel it is then" he said giving her a childish grin. "Yup! " of course he coil do it he was a big boy now! He then saw her catch the vial in case he had dropped it "I.. well.. you..you mentioned candy so.. I got excited" he said feeling a little ashamed he had gotten a bit excited.. but can you blame him.. he just had to drink this potion and in return he was getting not 1 but 2 bags of candy!! 2!! "Oh this?" he said looking at his own vial "Umm its.. happiness. Not that you need it, you already seem happy to me" he said to her. He then looked at her vial and drank it in one go. "Hmm not a bad tasting potion. Kinda nice" he said and tipping over once more to get any drops left over. "I don't feel anything you sure this thing works" he asked as he got up and gave her the vial. He then saw her quill "Ohh.. nice quill!! Ohh it so fluffy!!! " he said taking her quill and waving it around a bit "Woah look at it flies!!! that's how birds probably feel when they are flying" he said waving it around more "Man that is awesome!!!! Haha!!" he then remembered the candy! "Ohh what kinda candy you got me? huh? huh? come on tell me.. I can't wait to have all that candy!! the small ones.. the big one!! Every single one!!" he laughed a proper laugh as he thought about candy. Potion seemed to have worked.

She smiled as he agreed to call her Mel instead. "All it took was the mention of candy to get you excited? Geez... perhaps I picked the wrong Potions partner then..." Melek sighed as she trailed off. Mel eyed the vial that held his potions. "Happy? Okay... that isnt too bad then..." She lightly smiled and looked at him. If only you knew how sad I really am... A sigh escaped a little but then she was yanked away from her thoughts as he said that he didnt think her potion worked. Melek instantly became offended, not even noticing the part that came before that with how it didnt taste that bad. "I am a seventh year! Of course my potion is working!" A frowned appeared but then he started to get EXTREMELY excited by the look of it and was going on about her quill. She gave him a weird look. Melek frowned as he took away her quill. Mel sighed and grabbed another one, avoiding the splatter of ink that had formed when Tyler grabbed her other quill. She began to rapidly write down her observations.

His attention seemed to switch rapidly to candy and now is going on and on about different types.


She glanced up as she finished that last period. Melek eyed Tyler, "The two bags are mostly chocolate frogs and Turkish delights... I hope that is okay..." Mel had her quill ready to take some more notes.

Wrong potions partner?? of course not.. or maybe yeah she had "Yeah just candy.. you did? oh.. well maybe.. sorry about that" if he hadn't been in the room maybe she would have picked someone else. "You sure it has worked? I feel fine!!" he said as she mentioned chocolate frogs and Turkish delights "Ohh! Oh awesome! I will hopefully be one step closer to completing my card collect with those frogs! Oh man!! imagine if I did!! that would be the most amazing thing ever.. I would be asked how I did it! how I managed to find all the cards. Including the really rare ones! Oh man! all thanks to you of course!! " he said as he thought about being famous and being asked about the cards. "Have you go anything else apart from Turkish delights? Im not exactly fond of them that's all" he asked as he looked at her hoping she would say yes. Cause to be honest who liked Turkish delights? He then noticed she was writing some stuff down. "Ohh what you writing Mel? how awesome of a partner I am? eh? eh? course I am" he then started humming randomly as he stood there with her quill, running his finger over it.

Melek glanced at him and grumbled as he asked about the potion working again... She knew how to do it so shut it, firstie! "You think you are going to be famous just because you collected candy cards?" Mel glanced at him as if he was nuts but she did think it was kinda... sweet... if that was the word for it and... haha that was a pun! Yes she was being punny! That was a bad sign though but on to focusing on Tyler to get some more observations! She frowned and glared at the annoying boy. "Turkish Delights are the best candy... I should know because I am a full Turkish lady!" She pouted and then rolled her eyes at him, "Just oservations on your behavior for my homework... duh..." She went back to writing down things.

He grinned again and nodded at her question, of course he was gonna become famous!! she was in Seventh year and she didn't know this?? "Of course I am!! They aren't just any candy cards they are wizard candy cards!! some of them are really rare and if you get those everyone will be so excited and wanna know all about it! Imagine the Daily Prophet coming to my house and interviewing me!! Oh man it will be sooo cool!! Don't you think!!" he asked her as he looked at her. He saw her frown as he commented on the Turkish Delights "They are not! Chocolate frogs or Bertie Botts are awesome!!! All those flavor, cool ones and the weird ones!! way better than some Delights! You can have the Turkish Delights then! " there told her!! Ha!! Seriously just cause she liked them doesn't mean that he had to like them too!! so what if she was the Turkish Queen! she wasn't his boss!! Observations?? Ohhh!! interesting!! "Really? what have you got so far? Might wanna add how cool and awesome I am!! Yup! definitely the coolest and awesomest kid around here." he said chuckling as he tried to look at her parchment but he just couldn't sit still, all he could think about was the candy that was waiting for him!! "CANDYTIME!!" he yelled out randomly! exciting stuff that was, Oh yeah!!!

She looked at him as if he was crazy because... well... he was crazy if he thought that collecting cards would make him famous. "Whaaaaaaaaatever you say, Tyler... We will see if and when you do get the cards..." Mel shrugged and looked at him. Melek didnt think it matter what type of cards they were but whatever, she was not going to get into it right now with the young boy. Mel had a lot of things that were more important then arguing about the coolness of said cards. Melek just looked at him, waiting for him to go pick another topic because he was boring her. Then he was back to saying how Turkish Delights werent good. She just sighed and rolled her eyes at it, ignoring it otherwise. "Or I can just keep writing the truth..." She sighed and then made some last bit of observations.

He went back to talking about being famous before insulting my taste in candy. He is ever so curious about what I am writing down and he is a bit full of himself. It is time for the antidote then my turn to try the potion he brewed.


She glanced up after writing down the last of the observations. "Yeah, it is candytime AND antidote time... Melek took out the bottle and uncapped it, handing it to him. "Here you go, drink up but if you dont have the antidote yourself... then save me some so that I can go back to normal after you get your observations down." Mel sighed and looked at the young boy, trying to prepare herself for taking his potion.

He thinks that he is going to be famous just for collecting all the cards in the chocolate frogs or actually that he is going to collect all. Subject is being sweet in a weird way saying that it was all because of me that he is going to be famous. He then went on to say that Turkish Delights were disgusting which he is obviously delusional because they are the best ever. He is now curious about what I am writing. He is still playing with my quill. The subject seems to be bouncing from subject to subject like predicted since excitement especially from a first year, despite being a Ravenclaw, is untamed. He went back to talking about being famous before insulting my taste in candy. He is ever so curious about what I am writing down and he is a bit full of himself. It is time for the antidote then my turn to try the potion he brewed.


She glanced up after writing down the last of the observations. "Yeah, it is candytime AND antidote time... Melek took out the bottle and uncapped it, handing it to him. "Here you go, drink up but if you dont have the antidote yourself... then save me some so that I can go back to normal after you get your observations down." Mel sighed and looked at the young boy, trying to prepare herself for taking his potion.



Tyler could see that she didn't believe him "I will too!!" he said getting a little more excited at this idea! There was no way that he would not become famous! Those cards were just that awesome! She just didn't understand, no adult or older person did! "You will see when I get the cards, thats when you will see my name in gold lettering! my picture in the Prophet and everything!" oh yeah he could see it right now!! Sooo cool!! The truth?? he wasn't lying about that!! "That is the truth!! I was joking about what I said! That should go onto your parchment!!" as if she didn't know!! Did she not know that was also an observation?? She obviously wouldn't get the full marks in that case. It was candytime?? "Woohoo!! oh yeah!! I have been waiting for candytime!! Anti-dote? for what? " what did he need an antidote for? "Oh right the potion I drank! which didn't work by the way, I feel absolutely fine!" he said to her as he waited for her to take out the bottle. He watched her uncap it and hand to him "Hmm I will drink half and give you the other half, but I have an antidote thing as well! Not sure if you will want it after my awesome Happiness potion! It is the best in the world!!" he said getting excited over his potion before he drank half her antidote "See! nothing happened...." he starting to feel a little weak and needing to sit down "I feel so tired all of a sudden" he said as he looked up at her, confused "What just happened?" he vaguely recalled his actions "If I did anything bad.. Im sorry! I.. I didnt mean it!" he said as the antidote seemed to have reversed the effects of Mel's potion. He then knew it was her turn for his potion. so with a shakey hand he gave her his happiness potion for her to drink. He grabbed a parchment as well, and used the quill he took from Mel earlier to write his notes now. But he was feeling tired that he hoped he would be able to write enough.

For Saz =)
 
So this was both nervewracking and exciting. Sure Tia LOVED meeting new people and given that the girl was in Ravenclaw, the fifth year had every confidence that she would be great (read: witty and intelligent). She was even aware vaguely that she was a triplet which was just amazing in its own accord. And Tia even knew the girl's sisters from lessons, even though she'd oddly never been in a lesson with the girl herself. At least not that she was aware but given she was a triplet, maybe she was and just assumed she was either AJ or Angel.

Sitting cross-legged on the couch, Tia had her Astronomy notes in front of her and was just reading up on some constellations while glancing in between the entrance and the girl's dormitory for Abby to arrive. Which hopefully would be soon.

Abby entered the common room from the dorms and saw Tia her comrade for this term waiting for her and said "Hey Tia, been waiting for long"

Tia wasn't sure what direction the girl would be coming from. Was she the type to arrive directly from lessons or did she hang out in the fourth year dorms when she wasn't in class? Honestly, she had no idea which is why she guessed this was the point of the exercise was to get to know someone she wouldn't ordinarily converse with.

And when she was looking down at her reading again, that was when she heard the girl address her. Glancing up, the fifth year smiled. "Hey Abby. Nah, I've been keeping occupied," she raised her astronomy book slightly. She knew how to keep herself busy and not waste much time. Surely in a year, Abby will understand the need to always be studying. "Have a seat." She closed the book and set it beside her.

Abby took a seat opposite Tia and said "Yeah i know what keeping busy means you are always studying for your OWLs and so what do you want to discuss with us being comrades" Abby wasn't sure about what it all meant

Hmm... across. So that was kind of upsetting but Tia guessed she wasn't about to become best friends with the girl overnight but then again, seated across from each other might make it easier for the interview process.

"Yea, you say that so nonchalantly now, but just wait until next year comes. I'm so nervous I feel like I'll have no fingernails left by the end of the year," Tia laughed.

Readjusting herself on the couch, she smiled lightly, pulling out the sheet of parchment. "Right, so I think we were supposed to interview each other and get to know each other a little better. I mean we already know each other's names and years, but yea ..." She glanced down at the paper. "So I've jotted down about five or so questions to ask and then you can ask me whatever?"

"Number one, Abby Valentine, right? Do you have a middle name and is Abby a nickname for something or were you just born Abby?" She had a quill out to take notes with as she waited.

Abby smiled at Tia and said "Well my middle name is Victoria and i was actually given the name Abby at birth" Abby looked at Tia and said "Do you have any middle names Tia or any nicknames that i should know of?" Abby also got out her quill to note down Tia's answers

Abby Victoria Valentine. Tia wrote that down under her first question. No to Abigail. Just Abby. "Would you ever consider being called by your middle name or a variation of it, such as Tori?" Tia asked; a question she hadn't previously written down. "And I was born TiaMarie, so technically it's just one first name, but Tia just for short."

"You're .. fourteen, correct? When is your birthday?" Because if they were comrades, getting each other something seemed only appropriate; even if her own birthday was in the Summer.

Abby listened to Tia's question and said "I would consider it i wouldn't mind being called by my middle name and i have no problems with it being Tori and my birthday is April the 12th" Abby looked and wrote down what Tia answered to her question and asked "When is your birthday Tia?" Abby knew that it would be good to get to know as much about Tia as possible

History of Magic Homework #1
 
This term-long project was going to be... mentally and emotionally taxing, Sophie Brown knew that for sure. Digging deep into her history and recalling a variety of childhood memories, both good and bad and everywhere in between... well... she wasn't looking forward to that one bit.

At least she was sure she wasn't alone in feeling this way, for Tobes undoubtedly felt the same way. And maybe Zander did, too, considering the things he'd told her about his family. But looking over the prompts Glendower had given them... well, if she started at the first one and just went in order... maybe she could navigate the system well enough to avoid the hard-hitting questions where she'd be required to share things that made her feel embarrassed or vulnerable. There were quite a few of those, though, and she didn't want to lie.

But... if Glendower was the only one who was going to read her entries... then... maybe it would be okay to answer some of those. But what if someone got a hold of her Illuminated Manuscript and READ IT WITHOUT HER PERMISSION? These were all things she had to take into account as she settled onto the floor in front of the common room fireplace, sprawled out on her stomach horizontal to the heat source with her book open and her quill hovering above the first empty page.

She spent quite a few minutes there, reviewing the list and debating which ones she would try to tackle in the future. But... easy enough, the first prompt was, so she lowered her self-inking quill to the parchment and began to write.

Text Cut: Entry #1; Prompt #1
January 14th, 2087

My full name is Sophie Mae Brown. I got my first name from my grandmother, and I know that the name Sophie means "wisdom" or "wise," which ended up being perfect because I ended up a Ravenclaw to two Gryffindor parents. I've wondered if my name choice actually somehow strangely influenced me to be a Ravenclaw instead of a Gryffindor like them, since Ravenclaws are well-known for their wisdom, but I'm not sure if I believe in that kind of thing. Maybe it was just a cool stroke of fate that those two things aligned. When I asked my mum where the name Mae came from, she just said she thought it sounded pretty with the name Sophie, so that story is less cool.

I have a few nicknames, like Soph and Baby Bird, the latter given to me by Marcus Branxton. "Nerd" seems to be a common, affectionate nickname for me, too, but other than that, my name is pretty boring in terms of nicknaming. Plus, I tend to be the nicknamer of my friends - pretty much everyone who becomes close friends with me ends up with a nickname from me, so I suppose I primarily take on the role of a nicknamer, not a nicknamee.

Growing up, I thought the name "Sophie" looked weird. The letter combination of "ph" seems weird, but phonetically my name out loud sounds really pretty. It's cute and classy, just like me, and I think Sophie Mae Brown has a nice ring to it. I consider myself pretty lucky that my parents did a good job of naming me.

She was joking with the last part about being cute and classy and grinned while she wrote it, and she figured Glendower would know she was just jesting, too. All things considered, it wasn't a bad first entry. It wasn't super revealing, but it wasn't completely impersonal and without depth either. No, it would suffice just fine.

This project would actually be pretty cool, wouldn't it?

Penelope was eager to get to know her new eagle comrade. She hoped that Eden would make a good study buddy and friend. Although she had seen Eden in lessons and around the castle, Penelope had never gotten to know the older girl very well. Penelope had parchment and a quill ready to write down anything she needed to remember. It didn't look like Eden was here yet. Penelope opened up the Arithmancy textbook that she had brought to use as a surface to put the parchment on. Wouldn't hurt to get in a little extra studying in while she waited. Did Eden take Arithmancy? Penelope wondered which subjects Eden was good at. She would be finding that out soon enough.

EDEN WAS LAAAAATE OMGOSH.

She had fallen asleep, in the library, while doing a Transfiguration essay and...ugh. So boring. So dull. Eden must not have even realized it, either.

So she had just RUN up to the tower and FLUNG the knocker open after answering the riddle, panting. "I....am.....HERE." She puffed out, leaning against one of the study tables. She smiled a little and waved slightly. "Here, yes--me--here--" and she wandered over towards Penelope.

"Hi, Penelope..."

"Hi, Penelope..."

All of the letters had numerical equivalents. Some calculations required using the reduction method on the numerical value of your name. She would have to practice doing these calculations on her name. She looked up from her Arithmancy textbook when she heard Eden saying that she was here. "Hi Eden." What had she been doing before Eden arrrived? Studying arithmancy, that's what she had been doing. "Are you any good at arithmancy?" A few of these calculations were slightly confusing, but she would be able to figure it out. Maybe Eden could help her.
