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: MadAlice.

It didn't take long for Raj to wind up in the library. It didn't even matter that the school term had barely begin and there weren't exams he needed to study for. Nope, it was the familiar space that drew the sixth year to the cavernous, relatively quiet space. Books didn't ask much of him or really let him down other than sometimes being too complicated to really catch his interest but it was enough of a comfort for him.

The Ravenclaw decided to take a random wander through the open stacks to see what he could find. His curiosity getting the better of him as his gaze flitted along the spines as he slowly passed them on the shelves with muffled footsteps.

Lisa knew she was going to spend many hours in here so she figured that she’d get started to to better promote the habit of studying here. It was better to build the habit now than later. Then again, whenever she spent time in the library, she was always reminded fondly of her time here with Daniel and Alfie in her first year. They had planned to break into the Restricted Section together. And, of course, those plans grew larger when Lisa had told Serena about it. She bit her lip, stopping herself in one of the many rows of bookshelves when she remembered that conversation. Pain hit her heart; she brushed it away.

She came back to reality and heard footsteps near her or on the other side of the bookshelf. “Hello?” she whispered through the bookshelf.

Had the library not been so quiet, Raj would have doubted he would have heard the quiet greeting. As it was it took a moment or two to register that it was coming from the bookshelf to his left. Or more correctly the aisle on the other side of the bookshelf beside him. "Hello?" he echoed, albeit a little louder than the whispered tone.

On second thought, he continued walking, turning around the bookshelf between them to investigate, spotting the familiar presence. "Hey."

She giggled in response to the returned hello to her whisper. She was about to ask another question and challenge said voice to a game of “Who Am I?” when the voice revealed itself. She heard the “Hey” which caused her to stand up and twirl to look behind her. Oh yes. Of course. Raj. She smiled. “Raj, Hi. What’s new? I thought we were going to play a game?” she wagered with a wide teasing grin.

Im glad the Ravenclaw table was sort of chill this term…

Ooops...had he surprised her?

The way she had moved and spun around might have said so, but at least the smile sent his way meant that she wasn't bothered. "Nothing much." After all it was still early in the year. A game? Was that what the whispered words were supposed to be the start of? Whoops....he failed at playing along then, no pun intended.

"Yeah...it was nice to just settle back." In truth he might have kinda zoned out after a time, taking in the speech briefly and his aunt's appearance at the staff table before eating.

She shrugged her shoulders. Eh. Maybe they could play a game of gobstones or exploding snap later? In the meantime, she had also lost the game. I'm sorry I couldn't help it

Lisa nodded in agreement with Raj. Settling back in was needed too. She had been on edge, wondering how the start to her term would commence. So far.. it was mostly good. There were a few odd moments but mostly good.

"It must be nice not to have OWLS this year... Less studying.. More fun to be had too - I imagine," she said with a pout. She just had to get through this year.

Raj wasn’t entirely sure what to expect for this year, but he had been thinking on it. “Yes and no…” he admitted as he leaned lightly against the nearest bookshelf. “No exams to worry about THIS year, but the classes might get harder in preparation for NEWTS next year.” He supposed that was another reason he had suggested to try narrowing her focus, the better to start planning for the rest of her years even past her OWLS.

Not that he altogether minded the work as it was likely one of the reasons he was sorted into Ravenclaw after all. The desire for knowledge and overall curiosity.

Oh that was right. There was no rest for them post their fifth year. No rest for the wicked at all. Soon enough they’d have to start thinking about NEWTS. “I was trying my hardest to ignore them and be in denial,” she lamely joked as she turned her gaze to the books next to her before glancing back at him. “Its a pretty big decision to make… we’re deciding what we want to be when we grow up…” She eyed the books again before pursing her lips when the next thought crossed her mind. She had no idea what she wanted to be.

Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?

A childish and scary question. Maybe deciding what she wanted to be when she grew up was her boggart.

“Which is fine…” for now. One set of exams already loomed and it was enough to study for. ”Don’t get yourself too flustered.” It certainly wouldn’t do to harm yourself and risk affecting your score just as badly as if you hadn’t cared or pay attention. And he really didn’t want to scare his housemate too much.

AH yes, the dreaded thoughts on plans after school. “I’m thinking on possibly being a healer,” he answered finally sitting down at the table nearby. “Though not sure if human or creature related.” The subjects he was good at could go either way and being a creature doctor could still help at the family preserve. “What about you?’ What were her strengths and potential plans for the future?

Not getting flustered was solid advice. Solid and hard advice for her because the more she thought on the topic of the exams, the more worried she began. So she needed to not think of it as much to reduce the flustered state. “I’ll try it,” she nodded.

Lisa followed him over to the table and leaned most of her weight on the nearest chair. A Healer? “A noble career. My eldest brother is a Healer. He works with people. Not creatures…. a creatures one could be good too.” She could imagine both would be rewarding careers.

Having her question turned to her gave her pause. Kayla and her had just discussed careers and whatnot. Kayla had a list of 50 MILLION- okay, Lisa was exaggerating, it was more like 500 careers on it. “I’m not quite sure but I enjoy Defense Against the Dark Arts and Transfiguration.” Those two were her favourite subjects so far! “I’m not entirely sure what I can do with a career in that though…

Good, he wouldn’t want to be responsible for derailing her studying with worry from the get-go. That would be bad for advice. Of course, he also needed to practice what he preached during the course of the next two years. It was a noble career, though it wasn’t as if he was only picking it for the nobility of helping people. To be the goodie-two-shoes that he could be teased as being. “My aunt is a creatures healer…well outside of being a professor now.” Hogwarts had Aunt Hads as a two-for-one deal.

“Well Defense against the Dark Arts would seem to be more ministry-related like aurors and the like.” Though certainly there could be other applications to the subject he supposed, it was just the first thing that popped to mind. “Transfiguration is wide open…and they both can lead to teaching.” Or just for the fun of it, given his fathers were both animangus, one of the most complex forms for transfiguration but it wasn’t necessarily something linked to their current careers other than becoming creatures and caring for creatures.

His Aunt was a Creatures Healer? Wait. His Aunt was a Professor? She stared at him with eyes as wide as tea cup saucers. She was surprised that she hadn’t connected the dots. Lisa always prided herself in knowing almost all the information that she needed to at Hogwarts. And this was something she did not know. Her mind ran through a multitude of possibilities- the two in her mind being the Healer Macini and Professor Paton. “Professor Paton is your Aunt?” Consider her mind BLOWN.

Lisa nodded when he mentioned Aurors. At times, she felt like everyone went through a ‘oh hey Aurors are so cool’ phase. Maybe this was her phase? Then again maybe she’d discover she didn’t like DADA as much as she currently thought? It wasn’t, after all, as if she was going to be married to that career, yeah? “Transfiguration feels like it has more options… like becoming an Animagus sounds fun…

If you could choose animal to be your Animagus form, what would you choose?

Raj hadn’t thought anything of his remark and what it revealed, but it was clear from the younger Ravenclaw’s expressions that he had thrown his companion for a loop. “Yeah…she is,” he admitted with a one-armed shrug. It wasn’t like it was something that had to be kept secret…he wasn’t treated special with lessons...though he supposed he might have more trust and privileges around the barn.

Yeah, it did seem that way. That there were more options in one field over the other. Though given DADA and transfiguration weren’t HIS strengths and where he might see himself, Rajesh could only offer so much thoughts on the matter. “It could have its perks.”

What animangus form would he take?

That was a loaded question that could have many answers depending on the day. What creature did he best relate to or best represented him? “Well I suppose something that flies,” he finally answered. They had an extra level of freedom up in the air and the dragons and hippogriffs he had grown up with certainly enjoyed it. "Maybe an owl or something similar."

Oops. She certainly got a little over excited about that new nugget of information that she had discovered. “Thats cool!” she admitted, trying to regain her inner calm. Perhaps being overly excited wasn’t the best reaction in hindsight?

She nodded at his succinct and diplomatic answer. He was right. It could have its perks.

Lisa continued to wait for Raj’s answer even when another student asked to get past her. She moved to the side and looked back to Raj with curious eyes. Flies? Huh. That’d be helpful. You would have not only a superior mode of transportation but also get to enjoy the views. She personally (due to her terror of heights) wouldn’t have chosen such a flying creature but did find it interesting. Lisa did like owls however. They were so cute as babies! “Do you like flying?

You would have not only a superior mode of transportation but also get to enjoy the views. She personally (due to her terror of heights) wouldn’t have chosen such a flying creature but did find it interesting. Lisa did like owls however. They were so cute as babies! “Do you like flying?
Yeah, he had to agree it WAS cool. Rajesh liked that he still had someone he considered family around with him away at school when he wasn’t the most outgoing person to have that many friends as support. Plus, one adult he could absolutely trust no matter what. With what happened the year he first started, it was incredibly important.

As for flying… “I do,” he answered with a smile at the thought Whether it was on a broom as introduced by one father or on a hippogriff with his other parent. He hadn’t had much time for it last term trying to be studious and properly prepared for his OWLs, but hopefully that would improve for the current term. "It's very freeing and relaxing." At least to him he supposed.

Luckily for Max, there wasn’t much students in the library. Trying not to listen in, Max was on a mission to find a book about a sprcific subject. Potions specifically Felix Felicis. He walked down the many rows of books carefully browsing the titles. Did he think it was morally wrong? Not exactly. It depended on your will and intent behind it. Say you were trying to help a friend prove their inoscence in an argument? Maybe a bit of luck would help?

Tapio was back in the staff area wiping the last bit of dirt off his hands when he heard the tiny magical 'ding' from the spell that alerted him when someone new entered the library. He was still a little out of breath from hurrying up to the library from the greenhouses--my, he was certainly getting a lot of exercise this semester!

As he entered the front desk area, he glanced around and at first only saw a few students who seemed deep in conversation with each other, but in no need of help. Tapio did not believe in the old fashioned methods of librarianship that forbid any talk in the library, so he did not concern himself with them further. But back in the stacks, he thought he heard the sound of footsteps walking up and down--surely the sound of someone searching for something. Walking along the ends of the aisles, he finally saw a young Slytherin student and walked down to where he was looking.

"Finding everything you need? or could I help you with something?" Tapio asked in his best attempt at an indoor voice.

Max turned around to the sourse of the voice. He nodded a bit at the librarian.
“I was wondering where a book about potions would be?”
Of course there were dozens of books on the subject. He wondered if he could narrow the search or would it just be general information?
“Em…specifically Felix Felicis”. He scratched the back of his beck. Yeah. Max was never good at asking for help.

Tapio raised his eyebrows and stood still a moment, a little taken aback. This was not at all the sort of question he had been expecting and he had to think a minute about how to answer it. "Um, well, that's rather an advanced potion for younger students to be making, you know--that's usually not dealt with until you get into N.E.W.T. level potions making. And it can be very dangerous if not brewed correctly, or if you use too much or too often. What exactly did you want to find out about it?" And does Professor Hernandez know about this? Tapio thought to himself--if not, he certainly would hear about it shortly.

"I'm not exactly sure," Max answered. "I don't plan on brewing it, merely curious. See, Professor Hernandez gave us homework. He said to write something about where you would stand in using it." Okay so with this explanation it wasn't exactly what he was asking. Max didn't know the potion existed and wanted to learn more. He sighed. "I just want to know more," he said. Not entirely sure if spitting out his questions of why was it invented if you can't just use a jinx or when it was invented or discovered would be appropriate. If he kept rambling, he may never stop.

Tapio nodded, listening carefully. Ah, so this was in reference to homework, was it? That was different--though it was always a good idea to ask questions so you could find out a bit more about what exactly the patron wanted to know, so you could get them what they wanted. This was what they called a 'reference interview,' Tapio thought. "Hmm...in that case," Tapio said as he moved further down the aisle they were standing in, "maybe you might be interested in this." And he plucked a thickish volume off the top shelf of one of the ranges and handed it down to Max. Potionmaking and Ethics read the silver inlaid wording on the dark blue cover, and if you looked at the title for a few minutes, you might notice the word 'Ethics' blinking brighter now and again--because, magic.

"This book discusses the pros and cons of using a number of the more controversial potions, including Felix Felicis, and it might help you to sort out your thoughts on the matter." Tapio looked at Max expectantly, hoping this might be the sort of thing he was looking for.

Max nodded and took the book in his hands. He noticed the brightness of the word "Ethics"
"Yes, I think this would be the right book," He said.
He absentmindedly flipped through the book for a second, wondering what order it was in, if any.

"Well, take a look at it and if you decide it's what you need, you can certainly check it out," Tapio replied, looking over Max's shoulder at the pages he was flipping through. "You can use one of the tables if you like."

Max nodded. He walked over to one of the tables and started looking through the book. Of course he was unphased by the moving pictures cos magic. A few minutes later, he realized, he had been starting to read the book and he was on third chapter. Whoops. Um...
But the library was also meant for reading. It's okay. You don't have class right now, go ahead. Maybe it was a good thing he didn't answer himself outloud...
