Default The Courtyard


The Courtyard is where many students spend their time between lessons if they're not in their Common Room or in the Great Hall. Its architecture, including watchful gargoyle parapets and real Gothic arches, reveals the Courtyard to be one of the oldest parts of Hogwarts, connecting the castle with the grounds and also leading to the wooden bridge over the ravine. In between lessons, the courtyard is usually filled with students enjoying some sun or gathering around the pear tree before heading back into the castle. Whether you choose to occupy one of the many stone benches or play gobstones on the cobblestone ground, the courtyard is the perfect place to relax with your friends from all houses.

In the middle of the courtyard is an antique ceramic fountain flanked by eagles, perfect for admiring your own reflection or making wishes. Beware though: once your coin has been tossed into the water, you may never get it back as it will continue to magically sink out of dight. Do try not to fall into the fountain, as the staff does not fancy a swim to fetch little students.

A new addition to the courtyard as of 2104 is a bronze plaque hanging on a suspiciously, perhaps not high-quality, restored pillar. The plaque reads:
Quote:
This marks the location of the duel to the death between the Neo-Alliance leader, Lucien Rosier, and the British Minister for Magic, Charles Hollingberry, which resulted in Rosier's death. Long Live Hollingberry! May 10, 2104.

It was the first time Adam had ventured out to the grounds just to hang around and not go to the class - and naturally the first thing that caught his eye was the shiny new plaque on the grounds.

Shiny? Adam didn't normally get distracted by shiny things but...he was curious!

He hurried over and scanned it, smiling slightly as he took in the engraving. Awwww. What a nice little commemorative decoration! He sort of wish he'd seen the fight, but also he was very very glad he had NOT. He'd seen enough drama for a lifetime last term...

It was really nice outside today, and Ivy planned to enjoy it. Normally she would use this opportunity to take some photos, but...she still hadn't felt the desire to even get her camera out of her trunk yet. And she refused to force herself to use it. What was the point if it only frustrated her?

So she didn't actually have a plan for what she wanted to do outside, but she'd slung her bag over her shoulder to bring a few books and things with her. Maybe she'd do some spell practice. Maybe she'd check out the giant treehouse or visit some of the creatures. Maybe she'd find a friend along the way to hang out with.

Or maybe she'd catch sight of a new plaque on one of the courtyard columns, with Adam standing in front of it too.

Curious, she walked over, offering a smile to him. "Hey. What's..." She trailed off as she read it, and her smile faltered. "Oh."

He was still doing an excellent job of repressing just about everything that had happened last term, but he thought the plaque was a nice touch. It was the least they could do here for the Minister, but it also was a sort of painful reminder to not let their guards down.

"Anyways....what's up?" he asked her with a bigger smile, happy to turn the conversation away from the events of last term.

She had to admit, it was a little weird being able to so freely walk the grounds again. After being locked up so long, then most of the castle gone home when she was finally released, Emm had grown unaccustomed to seeing so many people around at any given more.

While the Third Year was still on the fence about how she felt about that, she had to admit, it was nice seeing her friends out without worrying about the hoodie squad scooping in to make their day miserable.

"Hey, Adam." She came to a stop by the pair, her toy dragon in toy. Now that he'd learned to fly, it was all he seemed to want to do. "Ivy." It took her a moment to notice the new shiny by the fountain, and another silent moment of reading it. "Wild, isn't it? This is where he took half of us and locked us up...and then he fell here, too." There was some sort of poetic justice in what happened to Rosier. He certainly deserved it.

He was right, Ivy supposed, and so she nodded. "He does, yeah." It was a nice way to memorialize the final victory that had been won here by the Minister that day. How they had all finally been freed.

And yet still she felt... Well, all of her feelings were all mixed up and conflicting with each other, and she couldn't pinpoint why. And she wasn't sure she even wanted to know why. Delving into all of that would mean dredging up those memories, and Ivy wanted noooo part of that. Ignoring it was going just fine so far, yep. So pushing all of that aside...

But before she could run with the opportunity Adam had given for a change of subject, Emmerson had also arrived with her flying dragon toy to take note of the plaque. "Yeah...weird to think about." The juxtaposition of the two events...was a lot.

And so she turned her attention to the toy creature. "Cool dragon."

Quinn was all bundled up in an oversized wool sweater as he sat on a bench in the courtyard, studying up on History of Magic. He thought that the autumn chill would help to keep him focused on his work, but the sweater was kind of counteracting that. He was dead tired today: most of Quinn's time recently was spent worrying. And that was not good news for his schoolwork, which there was an abundance of. The night before Quinn had stayed up late doing a paper for Muggle Studies, practicing for Charms, memorizing ingredients for Potions and writing up observations for Astronomy. And today he still had to do predictions for Divination, readings for History of Magic and another paper for Ancient Runes. All of this while thinking about everything that was going belly-up in his personal life. The heavy bags under his eyes were good indicators of how tiring this all was for him.

Elbows rested on knees, Quinn propped his head up with one hand and his textbook with his other. His heavy eyelids blinked slowly as he read the same sentences over and over to try and retain the information. Soon his eyes closed without him realizing it and he drifted off, slowly leaning forward, threatening to drop off of the bench entirely.

Autumn was in the air and Ingrid Luck was all wrapped up in her winter coat, not because she found the weather at Hogwarts out of the norm in anyway, being from Scotland herself. It was simply, a really cosy coat and being outside for too long, no matter who you had close to you, simply got cold after a while. Mind wandering slightly to her summer and the times she’d spend wandering through Edinburgh with friends, ordering food and laughing, it was safe to say that she wasn’t exactly paying attention to where she was going but the route was so familiar to her at this point that she wasn’t worried. And if it weren’t for someone who looked like he’d fallen asleep in a very precarious position on a bench, Ingrid would have happily wandered into the grounds but seeing something so out of the norm, even by Hogwarts standards, had made her take note and come out of her stupor.

Walking over to the boy who she somewhat recognised from her previous year at Hogwarts and because he was in fact in her house, she pulled out her wand (because you could never be too cautious) and lightly poked him in the face to see if he’d been charmed or simply fallen asleep. Judging from his and the massive bags under them, it seemed that it was most likely the latter. “Errr…hello? Wakey wakey. You’ve fallen asleep outside Quinn”, a small smile across her face now as she smiled down at the figure who was practically kissing the floor he’d leaned so far forward. Shaking her head and laughing, the third year Ravenclaw slipped her wand away and tried to shake him a little a little and wake him up.

Oh, the joys of being responsible. She knew that Adam would most likely play a prank on the boy but she was far too nice for her own good and not really the practical jokes.

"Hm..?" Quinn grunted groggily as he was roused from his slumber. As the world came into focus he realized he was looking down at the ground, which gave him a start. He flinched and sat up straight. "Wha—? O-oh, um..." Now he was looking at Ingrid. His brain was still a bit foggy as he rubbed sleep from his eyes. "Hey, Ingrid. Um. Thanks for, y'know..." big yawn, "...not letting me face plant." Quinn looked at his book and put it down for the time being, sighing. "I came out specifically so I wouldn't fall asleep... but I guess that was unsuccessful." He rested his chin on his head, pouting. "Maybe a slap from the Whomping Willow would keep me up..." A joke, of course, but not exactly delivered as one. Too tired to laugh.

The smile on her lips was a mixture of both playfully amused and worried because it was not normal for a second-year student to be this tired so early into the term. Sure, when exams were just around the corner, she understood but not right now. “Hey there sleepy head. Have a good nap?” she teased as he began to sit up again now. “It’s fine honestly. You’re lucky it was me and not my twin or you’d be waking up to toads jumping around you or something”. He really was the oddest twin sometimes.

“Why are you trying to stay awake anyway? Maybe you should be sleeping or like, taking a nap?”. He seemed so zonked that it was almost stupid to stay awake at this point. What book could be so important that he had to stay away? Briefly, she peered down at the book before turning back to him. “I mean, I can’t slap as hard as the Whomping Willow but I’ll slap you if you want?” her tone neutral and serious. If only the not-so-subtle smile across her face hadn’t given it away. “You could always see if some of the older students could slip you some invigoration draught? That’ll give you an energy boost”. She’d have honestly considered doing it herself but she’d never actually made one and it was a fifth-year potion, not that she hadn’t already read about how to make it in one of her older siblings textbooks however.

Quinn chuckled a bit at her jest—it actually was a fairly bad nap, in terms of naps. And then his mind turned to Adam—someone he didn't know well, but well enough from seeing him in classes. And, yes, he could imagine the catastrophe that would be if Adam had found poor defenseless Quinn sleeping on a bench. Quinn grimaced at the thought. "Ugh, yeah, that.... would have been very unfortunate," another big yawn.

He sighed, rubbing his eyes again. "I just... have a lot of work. It wouldn't be a lot if I had just... paced it out better but...." I feel like everything is happening all at once and I barely have time to focus on my work because my thoughts are consumed with how I'm ever going to sort out what's happening with everyone else and what's happening with myself "...I just didn't." For a moment he was taking Ingrid seriously, and he was seriously thinking about if a slap would wake him up, but he shook the thought from his head once he noticed she was smiling. He laughed a bit again. "No, I'm alright, but thanks for the offer." Quinn thought for a moment about getting an invigoration draught, but then... "Uh, well... I actually don't know very many older students that well. Like.... I know Avalon to see, and I talk to Claudine and Bernie a bit, but... I would feel weird asking them to make me something..." A lot of the older students intimidated Quinn, anyway. Anyone over third year generally made him nervous, either simply because they were older, or because they seemed like they wouldn't be bothered with him, or they were really good-looking and it gave him butterflies.... he hated butterflies. But he nonetheless wanted to get to know some of them better, and he wasn't exactly sure why, he just thought that it would be cool to have older friends.

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

The courtyard had been one of the few places at Hogwarts that Daniel loved to spend his time at. It didn't top the library but it was a close second. It was a simple place really where he went to read a book while seated at the edge of the fountain.

Today was a day like that, despite it getting colder outside Daniel had taken a seat on one of the stone benches in the right corner of the courtyard. He had been reading a new novel for the past twenty minutes when he had to take a short break.

He placed his book beside him on the stone bench and leaned his back against the wall behind him as his dark brown eyes found the pillar with the plaque on it. He had read it before so he stayed seated but wasn't it surreal that he was sitting here reading a book when a grand duel had taken place here? He let out a sigh, hoping to witness a duel like that one day. Maybe he'd be the one duelling?! That be so epic!

Ollie made her way over to the courtyard. She brought Pepper, her cat, with her again, figuring that she needed some fresh air too. No cat likes being cooped up in a dorm for weeks on end. She also had her notebook with her, the notebook that had a hand drawn map of the school. She planned on sitting by the fountain to study and decorate the map a bit. Ollie knew the school better than she had before, but she figured it wouldn't hurt to study her map a bit more.

"Okay Pepper, go find some bugs to hunt down." She nodded to her cat as she sat down on a bench next to a boy. Was he going to move? Was this seat taken? She should ask. "Is someone sitting here?" She pointed to the seat she was already sitting in. He looked familiar, but Ollie didn't think they had ever talked before."I can move if someone is." That was polite right? To offer to move from someone's spot. Well she wasn't even sure someone was actually sitting here.

And, yes, he could imagine the catastrophe that would be if Adam had found poor defenseless Quinn sleeping on a bench. Quinn grimaced at the thought. "Ugh, yeah, that.... would have been very unfortunate," another big yawn.

He sighed, rubbing his eyes again. "I just... have a lot of work. It wouldn't be a lot if I had just... paced it out better but...." I feel like everything is happening all at once and I barely have time to focus on my work because my thoughts are consumed with how I'm ever going to sort out what's happening with everyone else and what's happening with myself "...I just didn't." For a moment he was taking Ingrid seriously, and he was seriously thinking about if a slap would wake him up, but he shook the thought from his head once he noticed she was smiling. He laughed a bit again. "No, I'm alright, but thanks for the offer." Quinn thought for a moment about getting an invigoration draught, but then... "Uh, well... I actually don't know very many older students that well. Like.... I know Avalon to see, and I talk to Claudine and Bernie a bit, but... I would feel weird asking them to make me something..." A lot of the older students intimidated Quinn, anyway. Anyone over third year generally made him nervous, either simply because they were older, or because they seemed like they wouldn't be bothered with him, or they were really good-looking and it gave him butterflies.... he hated butterflies. But he nonetheless wanted to get to know some of them better, and he wasn't exactly sure why, he just thought that it would be cool to have older friends.
Smiling a little because Quinn clearly knew her brother and how much of an annoying little something. In all honestly, she knew she could be exactly the same too so she was never too harsh on her twin but her little pranks were always few and far between. “Don’t worry. I’m sure he’s busy running or something at this time” if that was what he still spent his mornings doing these days.

Sighing, she shook her head sarcastically. “Sounds like someone needs one of those homework planners that remind you to do your homework and shout insults at you,” not that she’d ever needed one but she’d heard good things about them. “Is there any reason why you didn’t space it out a little better?” her eyes watching him carefully now just to see if there was some other reason other than the usual “I can’t be bothered” or “I’ll do it tomorrow” excuse that people usually use.

“Your loss then” she replied shrugging now as if she would have actually done it. The truth was, after last year, she hated violence and the idea of doing something like that to another pupil kind of scared her, even if it wouldn’t actually hurt all that much. Nodding because she knew exactly what he mean, she continued “Yeah, I know what you mean. I had my brothers and sisters who were older than me so I could always ask them. I would offer to help you too but I don’t think I could honestly make one. Not right away anyway. It would take a lot of guessing and most likely a fair bit of trial and error and then I’d need a guinea pig and there would obviously be risks with things going wrong and potential trips to the hospital wing and…” but her voice began to trail off as her thoughts turned from her the verbal to non-verbal. She did that sometimes. Just spewed her thoughts out without thinking. Some people internalised their thoughts but not her. Not for the most part anyway.

“If you need one though, you should maybe ask one. Branch out a little. Make new friends” kind of like she sort of was now with him, for example. Smiling now, she put one hand on his shoulder as she made to get up. “Are you sure you’re okay now Quinn? You really do like awfully tired” her voice full of genuine concern for the second year.

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

Daniel had been lost in his daydream of epic battle when he was taken out of it as one of the Slytherin first years appeared in front of him. He looked down at the cat and wondered where his black cat even was. He wasn't worried though, ever since he had bought the cat in Diagon Alley the animal had been roaming around and only coming back now and then. It was perfectly capable to be alone.

He did not say anything as the girl sat down on the bench next to him. The bench wasn't only for him after all and he knew how to share. Her question made him turn his head to look at her though and he wanted to comment on it that she was seated there but decided not to in the end. "No" he said. "I was alone until you showed up" he had seen her during classes but never really interacted with her. "You're a first-year like me, right?"
