Default Library


A maze of thousands upon thousands of books, the library is heaven to any book-lover. Upon entering the high-ceilinged room, the smell of books, both ancient and new, hits you. There are many tall, narrow shelves neatly lined up, each divided into different sections -- charms, potions, Muggles, fiction, and so on. If you find a book you're interested in, simply make use of the sliding ladder or summon the book with Accio to retrieve it.

But the library just isn't a labyrinth of books. In the heart of the library and on the outskirts of it are tables and seating areas designated for quiet research and reading, some with accompanying fireplaces or large stained glass windows. Tucked away in the very back of the library is the Restricted Section, which requires a key that the librarian keeps on his person at all times and permission to enter because of the more mature titles and content that are tightly locked and chained within. At the entrance stands the front desk where the school librarian can usually be found, who will happily recommend a book, check out a book for you, and help you with any of your library needs.

OOC: Please do not play for the Librarian: Bazinga.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

For the past week, Daniel had been spending his free time outside of classes in the library reading his personal books which he had brought with him from home or reading up on his textbooks.

Today, the Hufflepuff had his "A Beginner's Guide to Transfiguration" textbook open on the table and while he was trying to concentrate on the words, his dark brown eyes kept looking up in the direction of the restricted section in front of him.

His brother, Minjae, had told him once that a student could only enter that area with special permission from a staff member and that first years were never going to get access to it.

Maybe if he befriended the librarian he could one day, preferably still this year, enter the area??

Alfred adored the library. He spent hours on end in his family's mansion library, reading anything from French poetry from the Middle Ages to the most recent of science books. He half-skipped to the library, intending to find an interesting book to read in his free time.

As he entered the library, Alfred slowed down to a walk and purposefully got lost in the labyrinth of books. He picked up an interesting looking book on potions before emerging into the heart of the library. He noticed fellow first year Daniel sitting at a table and went to sit in front of him, unintentionally blocking his view of the restricted section. "Hi." Alfred glanced over his shoulder towards the restricted section which Daniel seemed to be looking at. "The restricted section." He turned back towards Daniel. "I wonder what kinds of books are in there."

Taking out a piece of parchment from his bag as well as some writing material, Daniel dipped the quill in the ink and began to copy phrases and interesting symbols from his textbook while every now and then the Hufflepuff would look up to look in the direction of the restricted section.

”Hey” he said absentmindedly as Alfred took a seat right in front of him. Daniel didn’t mind though even when his view from the restricted section was blocked off. ”Probably loads of books about the Dark Arts” his dark brown eyes seemed to shimmer with curiosity. ”I want to see that room so badly” he whined as he leaned forward in his chair to place his face on top of the parchment on the table as he looked back up at the other first year. ”You want to find out?” he whispered, getting back up and being unaware that his cheek was now smudged with ink.

Alfred fiddled through the pages of the book that lay in his hand. So much for coming here to read and study, they were now talking about the Dark Arts. "Yeah, probably." The Dark Arts had an interesting appeal to him. Not in practice, obviously, that was most likely illegal, but in theory, it seemed much more curious and interesting to read and learn about than charms or hexes. Plus, learning about the Dark Arts would probably help in Defense Against the Dark Arts. If you knew how to use a spell, you would know how to counter it if it was cast against you, right?

Alfred groaned simultaneously when Daniel complained about not being able to enter the restricted section. "I know, so do I." A hint of mischief appeared in his light brown eyes when the boy hinted at sneaking into the section. "What were you thinking?" His whisper was only slightly louder than the faint fire in the fireplace near them. "By the way, you have ink on your cheek." He pulled out a clean tissue from his robes and offered it to Daniel. "Here."

Lisa was here to do some research. She had questions that needed answers and thus the library was the location to head too. Her questions were specifically focused on potions and potion making thanks to her friend Serena. Serena has helped spark interest within the Ravenclaw on creating her own potions. Presently she didn’t know how to do it but she thought she’d be able to find a couple good source materials here.

As soon as she stepped through the doors, the scent of old paper and leather reminded her of home. She took a deep breath and adjusted the bag resting on her shoulder. This would be her favourite place. It would become her safe haven along with the Giant Treehouse. Her palace of knowledge for her operation to rule the school Well maybe not rule the school but have enough knowledge to set her up for success and help her pull pranks and mischief... and get away with it. Getting away with it was key.

She hadn’t expected to find both Alfred and Daniel conversing in front of a blocked off section of the library. She darted behind the nearest bookcase and peered around the corner, wondering what they were up to. They weren’t going to break into it.... were they?

If they were going in, she wanted in too.

She seized the moment to crash when Alfred had offered Daniel a tissue. Casually grabbing a random book on potions, she popped out from behind a bookcase as casual as one could make that and approached them. “Hey. Brushing up on some pre-reading or..... here for fun?” she asked the two with curious wide eyes as she walked over towards them. When she was close enough, she then lowered her voice. “You two aren’t planning on... ” She directed her gaze towards the locked section in front of them and clutched the book closer to her chest.. “causing mischief in there...?

Hopefully they got that she was referring to breaking into the blocked off area. And she wanted in if they were.

The Dark Arts had been a branch of magic that had piqued his interest ever since he had found out about it. His curiosity had only grown in Diagon Alley when he had spoken to Ashley who had told him bits of magic that were definitely considered Dark. Now, just because he was interested in the subject did not mean that he wanted to use it but there was no harm in being curious, right? . "I mean... Accidentally wandering in to a wrong section... It could happen right?" unfortunately, the Hufflepuff was unaware that the place required a key that the librarian had at all times.

"Huh?" he blinked as a tissue paper was handed to him. "Wow you really carry everything with you!" he laughed as he remembered back to their first meeting in Diagon Alley. "Thanks man, you're great" he took the tissue paper and began wiping it on the wrong cheek as Lisa made a sudden appearance.

Still seated at the table, Daniel closed his book with his free hand and checked the tissue paper to see if it had wiped away the ink. He would have gone red in the face if he blushed but he rarely did so when he realized he had been cleaning the wrong cheek he quickly changed to the other one and hoped that both of them had not noticed.

"We are not going to cause mischief we just want to take a look" he shrugged as he leaned back in his seat. "Right Alfie? I can call you Alfie right?"

Hours of spending time in the library of a pureblood family that were somewhat known for not exactly fighting against evil in the wizarding world meant that Alfred already had a basic knowledge of the Dark Arts. But he never mentioned that. He didn't want himself or his family to be put on some sort of Ministry watchlist. He furrowed his brow in confusion when Daniel suggested a probably not plausible excuse for breaking into the restricted section. "Doesn't the librarian have the key to the section?" On top of that, Alfred supposed the librarian was dumb enough to believe that. It seemed way too suspicious.

He noticed that Daniel wiped the tissue on the wrong cheek but chose not to point it out and embarrass him. He looked up when Lisa suddenly appeared, but not that up, since Lisa was quite short. "Oh, hey. How about... both?" A glint of cunning appeared in his eyes and he glanced back at the section before he replied in a similarly low voice. "You just read my mind." He then turned back to Daniel. "Doesn't sneaking into a forbidden section fall under the category of mischief?" It certainly seemed like that to him "Yeah, I prefer Alfie anyway." 'Alfred' reminded him of his parents, and that was a big no-no.

Lisa had seen the wrong tissue wipe but didn’t mention it because she didn’t want to make Batman feel upset about it. She pretended to look away and that was when she noticed how much taller the boys were of her... EVEN when sitting down. She cast a look towards Daniel who was now wiping the correct cheek. Ah. Good. She didn’t feel so bad about looking?

Why had she looked away? Well she still felt a little... sorry... about the run in from the summer even if she hadn’t been the one at fault and the most innocent member of that party. Buuut... she wouldn’t mention that he had missed the smudge. She only would have said a thing if he wasn’t able to wipe it away. Would she tell him that he had spinach stuck in his teeth? Absolutely.

She turned her gaze to Alfie first as he suggested why not cause both for pre-reading and fun purposes. Now that was intriguing. And when he said that she had read HIS mind. She, obviously, felt quite chuffed. Yep. She was totally a mind reader. “A special power that sometimes works... Thanks to déjà vu,” she joked with a smirk as she clutched the book closer to her chest. She was about to ask him another question when Daniel spoke up explaining that they weren’t going to cause mischief. Really? Well that WAS NO FUN! Wait.. wasn’t sneaking...?

She opened her mouth ready to offer her opinion on it when Alfie said the exact thought that she had. She turned to look at him and smiled. “100% FACTUAL. Alfie is right,” She turned to Daniel then. “Come oooooooonnnn, Batman, do what you do best.... Sneaking, Sleuthing, Investigating, and Justice.” She dramatically did a pose at the end as she shifted the book into her left hand to free her right and then thrust her right fist into the air. She held for a moment before glancing at both boys and returning to clutching the book close to her chest.

Random question. Are you guys going to audition for the play?

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

The biggest downside of being a Muggleborn was that he had a limited amount of resources about the magical world. Despite his big brother being a wizard as well, there were still many things he wanted to learn. Coming from a wealthy muggle family meant that he had a library at home too because his mother had found it a must. But their books were not informative about magic at all.

Finally managing the get the ink off of his cheek, Daniel was secretly glad that both of them had not mentioned anything about it but also wondered if they would have stayed quiet even if he had not managed to get it off. He placed the tissue paper in his robe pocket as Alfie spoke about the librarian having the key to the Restricted Section. "...I knew that" he did not know and had assumed that the room was accessible. Well, that plan went down the drain. They needed an older student to help them out. He made a mental note to find someone later.

Daniel silently cringed at the Batman nickname that Lisa had decided to use after their first meeting in Diagon Alley. He had only introduced himself like that because he wanted to annoy Gellar but he didn't expect the nickname to get stuck. The pose that Lisa did was met with a raised eyebrow before he decided on answering her question.

"Do I look like the theater type?" which was another way of saying no. He wasn't dramatic like Victoria Gellar.

He raised an eyebrow and looked confused at the Batman nickname. "Batman?" Wasn't that some old Muggle superhero? What did it have to do with Daniel? All he knew about the superhero was that he was closed off, excessively rich and secretive. Sounded exactly like Alfred's father. He thought nothing of the pose but a smile crept onto his face at the sneaking and sleuthing part. "I mean breaking locks isn't that hard..." He had done it numerous times with his friends when he was younger to sneak into places he wasn't supposed to be. "But magic locks are harder and probably protected with spells." The ones in his family's house definitely and rather annoyingly were. Whenever his parents were mad at him (which was most of the time), they would lock his favourite parts of the house, namely the library, the music room and the art gallery. Those locks were simply impossible to break.

"I like theatre, but I'm not very good at it. The only 'theatrical' things I'm good at are music and ballet." Both results of lessons his parents had forced onto him as a child. What was worse was that he actually liked the lessons, making them one of the only things he liked about his parents.

He introduced himself to V and I over the summer as Batman. I thought it was a funny nickname soo it’s stuck.” Much better than Skewer Boy as a nickname. Or Danny Boy like the song. Surely he’d hate that. “ I also thought that you were a fan of Batman... the comics hence the nickname but you don’t like it... So I’ll try not to call you that..” It just worked so well because right in front of her she had Alfred and Batman. How could she resist????

She couldn’t. Self control was difficult for an eleven year old.

And Daniel you may not be the theatre type but I feel like you attract drama... whether you want it or not....Kinda feels like you and V are polar opposites that just keep on getting drawn together,” mused Lisa matter of factly. She didn’t know how else to phrase it exactly. Buuut it was close enough. Daniel did attract drama....

But anyway back to the topic of sneaking..... “Perhaps... we find an older year? I don’t know who would be willing to help us break in... or we study the lock closely for several weeks to a month and learn the right spell?” She’d prefer to convince an older student for help. She was impatient and wanted to just go do the sneaking.

Riiiiight. Come see the play then.” Did Daniel want the hard truth of the fib? Lisa then gave Daniel a deadpan facial expression at his question, wondering if she really did need to answer that question. The boy clearly lacked self awareness around his own dramatics provoked by others dramatics. She sighed and turned to Alfred. She offered him a smile when he spoke about theatre. “Ballet is sooo hard. I couldn’t imagine doing it. My eldest brother did ballet and loved it but I’m not so coordinated or graceful,” said Lisa as her cheeks flushed.

"You broke into rooms before?!" Alfie was proving to be very interesting right now. Breaking locks was something that Daniel had never done before. Every room in their manor was accessible and he never had any friends before except for Minjae. So breaking in was not his forte.

While Lisa was explaining to Alfie what Batman meant in this context, Daniel's mind went to the books in the restricted section. The fact that so much knowledge was being restricted for them made him feel upset. Because if they were so 'dangerous' then why were they even at Hogwarts?

"I only called myself Batman because I didn't like Gellar's attitude" he said as he came out of his thoughts and leaned back in his chair and put his hands behind his head as he rocked on the back two legs. "I'm fine with it" he shrugged. It was better than being called 'crybaby' HA! "Just didn't expect the nickname would stick"

At the mention of him and V getting drawn together like a magnetic, the Hufflepuff nearly fell backwards but was able to balance himself. "I am NOT drawn to Gellar!" what was she even trying to say with this?! He might have to keep his voice down in the library but he did not care at the moment. He wanted to make something very clear."I want NOTHING to do with her!" She was mean, stupid and a crybaby.

"And how do we know that we can trust any of the older students?" most of them seemed somewhat unstable in his opinion. "We could make a sleeping potion and give it to the librarian, everyone loves tea!" he. was. BRILLIANT.

Alfie liked theatre? Daniel looked at the Slytherin in mild surprise. It was true that they had not been friends for long but he honestly hadn't expected him to like it? And BALLET? He continued to surprise him and he liked it. "I don't think the play involves ballet but if it does you should sign up!" just because he did not like theatre did not mean he was going to be a killjoy for anyone else who wanted to do something. Looking at you Gellar for telling Lisa her little business at Hogwarts would be stupid! he was going to ignore that he agreed with her here

"Yeah, but never anything serious." The only locked rooms Alfred had broken into were mostly kitchens because he was hungry. He had many fond memories of causing such mischief with several of his close friends. Shame they all went to Beauxbatons. The French school wasn't bad at all, but he just preferred Hogwarts.

Alfred was pulled out of his memories by Daniel's sudden outburst. "I mean, you kind of are..." Daniel and V did seem to get into a lot of strife with each other, no matter how much both tried to avoid the other. "What even happened between you two?" All that had happened between the two had indeed made him very curious as to how it started. It must have been something really bad to get to this point. "Preferably quietly, we're in a library." That last part made him sound like some old, annoyed librarian that hated even the quietest of noises.

"Asking an older year seems better and easier to me." Alfred was sure there was at least a few that were stable. "How hard is it to make sleeping potions?" The question was asked with absolutely no regard to the fact that he was literally holding a book on potions.

On the topic of theatre, Alfred too gave Daniel a deadpan expression at the question. The Hufflepuff severely lacked self awareness. His little outburst was proof that he was indeed very dramatic. He turned to Lisa and gave her a smile back. "I agree, ballet is really hard. I'm only good at it now because my parents made me take lessons as a child." He had started lessons at six years old. Turning back to Daniel, he couldn't help but smile at his encouragement. "Even if the play does involve ballet, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't sign up. I like watching theatre, not actually doing it."

Lisa looked to Daniel, intrigued by his explanation, as she watched the boy lean back in his chair and just balance on two legs. That was extremely dangerous. Anyone could come by and knock over the chair if they wanted to or cast a spell or something to send him toppling out of his seat. But what spell would work? She quickly dismissed the thought and then focused on what he was saying. It was a good thing that he didn't hate the nickname. "I thought you were funny. The nickname was memorable... the tears were... not." And that's all she would add on the topic of V crying because she didn't want to betray V's feelings. They were... friends too.

She was quite pleased when Alfie agreed with her comment about Daniel and V being drawn together. Opposite powers being attracted to each other for evil but perhaps one day it could be good...? Then again she knew that wishing on a shooting star was futile despite everything Disney wanted to sell you so she stayed quiet. Instead, she just flashed Alfie a smile and then looked to Daniel to explain the whole mishap. It wasn't her story to tell but if he didn't then... she'd be compelled to fill Alfie in cause she liked Alfie. He seemed resourceful and he was nice to her. Daniel was also nice to her too but... She stayed quiet. It was Daniel's tale to tell.

Lisa glanced down at the book that she was holding in her hands and began flipping through it, searching for some answer to the sleeping potion question. "We can trust my older brother. He's quiet, smart, and resourceful. Evan Nam could help but he's only a third year. He's quite knowledgable.... I know many third years... I don't know too many older years... Do you guys know older students?" she asked as she flipped through the book again until she landed on... AHA! This is what she wanted. After Alfie asked the question, she placed the book on the table and pointed to the Sleeping Draught. "This should do the trick. It's simple but powerful. It works QUICKLY like super fast but it says it doesn't last forever... temporary solution in fact..." She continued to scan the page as she stood on her tippy toes. "I don't know how long it takes to brew... but it can't be too too hard. A sleeping draught does sound easier than polyjuicing as the Librarian. I wouldn't know where to start with that one.... but we could ask questions in our next class if we wanted to wait..."

She listened to Alfie talk briefly about ballet. "Do you enjoy it?" she asked curiously finding this subject very interesting. Man both V and Alfie were natural dancers and she... she was good at flailing her arms and sword fighting with a toy lightsaber. That was IT! "Well i hope you come see it. I'm going to audition so I suppose I'll need all the legs to break for luck!" Errr... she wasn't sure if that was the right expression but it was perhaps... close enough? Did the job? Yes.

The library felt quiet and slightly uneasy to her, but what was new these days? She walked with a purpose toward the back wall where the fireplace was, it was high time for a curl up in her favorite chair with a book. She'd likely take a nap for a bit in the warm glow of the fire, but she'd take it since she didn't always sleep good in her own bed these days. She glanced around trying to see if anyone she knew was around... you know just in case she wanted to be social. Only to find a bunch of first years talking kind of loud, they realized this was a library, right?

right?

RIGHT?

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

If both Lisa and Alfie agreed with each other that he was kind of dramatic, then maybe he was? He paused to reflect on this for a short moment and concluded that THEY WERE SO WRONG. "I'll tell you what happened!" he told the Slytherin and jumped up from his chair. "Gellar shoved me to the ground THAT'S what happened!" He would not go into detail here because he could feel his annoyance towards the Slytherin girl rising again and he didn't want to come across as "dramatic" in front of them. "And then SHE ran away crying. I mean who does that!?"

Someone who got told that they were too stupid to use their brains apparently but please.

Evan Nam. Daniel knew that he was in Ravenclaw like Lisa but that was all he knew about the older but if Lisa thought he was trustworthy he had to accept that because he did not know any older students.

When Lisa placed the book on the table and pointed at the Sleeping Draught, Daniel walked closer to check the ingredients. "This is first-year level" he stated, looking at them both for a brief moment. "If we follow the instructions carefully we should have no problem making this. Our biggest concern should be HOW we're going to give it to the Librarian" he said, his voice close to a whisper now so that only them two could hear because he had noticed an older Gryffindor nearby. "I mean, I doubt she'll fall for it that easily" he scratched the back of his head. "I say no to Polyjuice" he didn't want to wait months.

The play.... while Lisa and Alfie talked about it, Daniel climbed on the table and sat on the edge of it. A small smile appeared on his face when he realized that Alfie had gotten his encouraging words. So he liked watching theatre more than actually doing it? Shame. But oh well it was his own decision. "Why do we say that? Break a leg? " And what if someone took it literally? LOL. Should be fun to see.

To be completely honest, Alfred was unsure on where he stood on this Daniel versus V issue. He started off somewhere near the middle, but naturally liking Daniel more drew him closer to the boy, however taking into account Daniel's frequent eruptions and how he was quite a, for lack of a better word, dramatic person drew the young Slytherin closer to V... it was all very complicated. He didn't hate either of them, but Daniel's flair of drama and the fact that V had accused him of not being a good friend meant that he couldn't completely like any of them.

Daniel's sudden exclamation took Alfred by surprise and he jumped a little in his seat out of mild shock. "I said quietly..." He raised an eyebrow at the fact that the Hufflepuff was pinning all of this on a simple shove from V, and recalling his own experience with Daniel in Diagon Alley simply baffled him further. "You made me fall on the ground the first time we met but I still like you." The comment probably didn't help, but the opportunity was right in front of his face and was way too much to just pass over.

Alfred looked over at Lisa's book as she pointed at the draught. "It looks simple enough." Just like Daniel said, a couple of first years like themselves could probably brew it. He lowered his voice to a whisper, similar to Daniel. "I agree - she's not stupid. She won't just take a random cup of tea or something from a first year." He assumed the librarian was smarter than that. One, he himself wouldn't take a random drink from some kid and two, surely anyone who looked after a library had to be smart. He raised his voice back to normal again. "No, I don't know many older students." He personally didn't see the point in getting to know them. One because not many of them would probably want to be friends and hang out with kids and two because they left earlier anyway.

"Yeah, I love ballet." Ballet had become Alfred's coping mechanism when he was angry, so it always had a special place in his heart. "I'd love to come and watch the play. I'm sure you'll do brilliantly." He ignored the misuse of the expression, mainly because he had no idea how to use them properly either. The only expressions and idioms he used were French ones. "I don't know, maybe in the olden days people used to break their legs when performing good roles in plays." The expression made no sense, just like Alfred's poor attempt at guessing how it came to be.

As Daniel jumped from his chair enthusiastically to explain what V had done to him when they had first met, Lisa gently lowered her chin to rest on her right hand as she watched the boy loudly tell the tale. If he continued to be this loud, surely they would be kicked out of the library, yes? She remained quiet and continued to listen and pouted. She wished she had taken a seat. She did have an amused smile on her lips when Alfie reminded Daniel that he had asked him to be quiet when regaling them with the tale. Heh. The whole first meeting was a rather unfortunate event... but she liked both Daniel and V even if they didn’t like each other yet . Lisa did arch her eyebrows when Alfie said that Daniel had caused HIM to fall over but Alfie still liked him. She didn’t comment and just simply looked to Daniel for a reaction.

Now the plotting had commenced and Lisa was back in her element. She listened to both Daniel and Alfie as they said it was possible to make. “Let’s make it,” she said before fishing out a quill and piece of parchment to write said ingredients down. They’d have to get this from the Potions storeroom. Daniel and Alfie were absolutely correct in Lisa’s mind. They’d have to figure out how to give said drought to the Librarian. She glanced around the library when she heard Daniel start to whisper. She leaned towards the boys, covering her mouth to the older student just in case the girl could read lips. “ Well is she close to a fellow staff member? Or even perhaps a house elf that we could befriend to help? Most of them seem serious but perhaps there’s one who could help?” she whispered before she paused. Polyjuice seemed the best option to her. Surely it would take longer but they could pretend to be one of the Librarian’s colleagues and do the task flawlessly.....

WAIT!

Lisa GASPED! and then she S N A P P E D! her fingers. EUREKA. Lightbulb moment. “ What about the bread that Healer Poppy bakes? Do you think the potion would be effective if we baked it in the bread or at least covered it in it?” Perhaps something would happen to the potion when they were baking it like becoming less effective due to the heat but she thought she was on to something.

My brother does too,” added Lisa and smiled. Ballet was beautiful and maybe Alfie could teach HER to be more graceful when she danced. She flushed at the compliment from her friend. He was really sweet saying stuff like that. “Thanks...” she smiled, brushing a strand of dark hair behind her ear before looking over at Daniel when he asked that question. Why did they say break a leg? She looked to Alfie when he offered his thoughts on it. “Maybe.... Maybe their legs or the legs of their chairs? I dunno?” she shrugged.

The library was one of Evan's favorite places in the castle, so naturally that was where he wanted to place one of his pumpkins. Plus decoration seemed like something Professor Euka would enjoy seeing as well. He checked between the two, making sure that neither were mushy and could cause any damage to anything. The library was, after all, a sacred place to be protected.

Which was why he also had stowed away a piece of parchment paper to lay down underneath the pumpkin. That should be enough to keep it from accidentally leaking it's guts. Right?

He was hoping. Stopping by the entrance, he placed his parchment down before setting the jack-o-lantern with his day of the dead skull showing through. Once he was pleased with the positioning, he turned and headed back up to the upper floors to find another place to put the remaining.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

Daniel was not aware that his sudden exclamation had startled the Slytherin in his seat and he also did not hear him telling him to be quieter. It was only when he mentioned their first encounter in Diagon Alley that he turned to the Slytherin and crossed his arms in front of himself defensively. "That was different, ok? Did I shove you to the ground on purpose? No, I did not. I even apologized!" or had he already forgotten about that?! "Gellar shoved me with her bare hands because I told her my name was Batman as a joke. Even Lisa thought it was funny!"

there uh, might have been some details he had left out on purpose but all of his rude comments had been a retaliation to Gellar's rude words. Instead of backing down he always stood up for himself and people saw this as a bad thing. It was frustrating. Especially because Gellar cried far too easily and made her look like she was some innocent girl when in reality she started had started everything!

Not wanting to walk away in the middle of their plans to get into the Restricted Section, Daniel stayed seated on top of the edge of the table but his eyes had a different look. He was annoyed with Alfie for saying what he said earlier.

And then Lisa GASPED and SNAPPED her fingers and now it was Daniel's turn to jump in his seat, or rather a table. "That's brilliant Lisa!" he said, clapping his hands against each other once. "That bread is so good, especially the strawberry bread!" He had tried it during the first mandatory therapy meeting, one that had been completely useless to him but the bread had been good. "We need to figure out who is going to do what" he said. "And we need a place where we will brew the potion. Maybe the potions lab?" he asked. "We can always say we are practising our potion-making if Professor Varma asks what we're doing?"

"When will it be announced who will act in the play?"

Something seemed off about this story. Like Daniel was leaving out some details on purpose. V wasn't that dramatic that she would push him to the floor just over that Batman joke. The fact that Alfred himself falling to the floor was an accident was true, but this just seemed weird and didn't seem to add up. He began to read between the lines to see what had really happened.

He was distracted from his sleuthing by Lisa's sudden gasp and snap of her fingers. "That's perfect!" He thought over her suggestion in his head. "I think we should add the potion after its baked. Something might happen it because of the heat, maybe?" He didn't know much about potions.

Alfred would certainly be open to teaching Lisa and probably Daniel too (if he wanted to learn, that was). It was mostly simple steps that helped you to grace. On the topic of 'break a leg', he had a eureka moment. "Maybe it's because they're wishing that the actor ends up in a 'cast'. It makes sense to me."

Daniel hadn’t exactly told the whole truth so Lisa simply gave him a look and nothing more. He knew that he wasn’t saying the full and complete truth. It was on him to own it. “What can I say? I’m a sucker for superheroes,” she explained with a chuckle and a casual shrug. “I did think it was funny. I thought you were defusing the situation.” Perhaps she had given him more credit?

Lisa Nam knew she was brilliant and thus she BASKED in both boys admittance of her being absolutely brilliant. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. She nodded in agreement with Daniel. The bread was good. Then she turned her gaze to Alfie who offered a potential solution to their issue. She, too, thought after would work. “Exactly Alfie. It’s like cooking with alcohol. Eomma would make rum and raisin brownies and the rum would burn off in the baking process.” They were all brilliant but she was the most brilliant right now. Teehehehee. Looking back to Daniel, she nodded.

I think Potions lab is safest. I do think the sleeping draught is one we can easily perfect without suspicion. I think it’s far easier than say the Polyjuice potion,” she grinned. “I’m good with doing whatever.” Lisa would be a okay to help with whatever they needed. Brewing, grabbing bread, etc.

Oooh. Alfie had a great suggestion. Her eyes brightened at what he said. “AHH! That would make complete sense!” She certainly liked that hypothesis. Turning to Daniel, she shrugged. She didn’t know. “I don’t know but I hope soon!!

Ash needed a bit of peace and quiet for the project she was working on right now. Because it was a little bit out of the ordinary for what she would usually draw, and she needed focus. It wasn't really a realistic drawing.

There was a girl looking in the mirror, and there was no reflection. Around her were wispy shapes. Some of them had words on them, some were just ominous-looking. Some of them were people-shaped, and they said things like Rosier, Upstead, Cambridge, and Father. Some of them were shaped like speech and thought bubbles. Those ones said things like mudblood, reckless, stupid, and no hope. Some had no discernible shape and no legible writing. And the shapes seemed to run around the girl (although of course they didn't really) and surround her. They seemed to be about to swallow up the space. And there was one avenue of retreat, which was the space behind the girl that was still open. But of course the girl wasn't looking that way. She just stood there, looking in the mirror that didn't seem to be showing anything.

Ash was kinda proud of this art. It was out of the ordinary for her, but she really liked it. Perhaps she should do more of this type of stuff.

She even smiled as she started to shade it and turn it into more of a drawing than a sketch. She even smiled. She even relaxed. Crazy. Ridiculous. Strange. Etcetera.

WHY was she here. Margaret really hated reading. She hated reading so much...she was fairly certain she hadn't laid a foot in the library more than twice in her previous two and a half years at Hogwarts. And that was to get Quidditch Through The Ages, and to return it.

But she had glasses now, and people with glasses were supposed to like reading.

Plus, Kinsay James had suggested she was just trying to read the wrong sorts of books, so...maybe she could try some more books about Quidditch. Quidditch Through The Ages had been somewhat boring but...maybe if she found something more exciting about Quidditch, it would be interesting.

Oh, was that Ash?

Immediately distracted from the Quest for Quidditch Books™, Mamie headed toward her friend and seated herself across from the Ravenclaw. "Hi!" she said, before realizing maybe she was supposed to be quiet here? More quietly, she leaned in and whispered, "What are you drawing?"
