Default The Lake


The large freshwater lake of Hogwarts is located just south of the castle. About half a mile wide in diameter, the lake dominates much of the school's landscape, a steely and ominous mass of icy water in the winter, yet an inviting and refreshing sight once the weather starts to heat up. On one of its banks, a towering beech tree stands sentinel, and is a popular location to meet and relax. Castle-side of the lake stands the boathouse.

You may swim in the lake, but be careful, and also mindful of the creatures that reside here. Merpeople, grindylows, and the Great Squid, to name but a few, call these watery depths their home. You would do well to leave them in peace. If they feel like it, they'll come to you; the Giant Squid, who goes by the name of Bartholomew Henry, has been known to bask in the shallows on sunny days.

OOC: Please do not RP for the Giant Squid.

"That's nice," she nodded in reply even though their answer only brought about MORE questions. Like, what made a someone eligible to be a candidate? And did they get to campaign for it? And did they want to run or did it just happen? And did they get PAID or was it just bragging rights? And how come she hadn't heard of them before ... they must not be very important, huh?

Except before she had a chance to ask, the Hmm-er was inquiring about the plants in her arms, as was Mr. Kazmi. "Oh, yeah." She hadn't forgotten. She just hadn't found a way to set them down yet. But also. "No thanks, Professor. I can handle this." Because feminism. Or something. She just didn't want it to seem like she couldn't do simple things on her own, so she made a whoooole thing about bending down and strategically squatting so that she was even closer to the ground. And then, only then, did she manage to set down all the plants she had in her arms and only tipped ONE onto its side by accident. It wasn't a big casualty.

But that was a lot of work and now she wasn't all that interested in actually planting them anymore. So instead, she grabbed two and walked them over to Mamie, who looked like she was happy about this planting business. "Hi." Maybe she'd want to plant them so that Kins didn't have to.

Margaret was minding her own business, oblivious to the Board of Governors and their hmm-ing, as she was busy planting her plants badly. But one little greeting, and she looked up grinning. It was Kinsay! Her friend! Her friend, Kinsay! Did she want to plant more plants by these plants? Realizing she might look a little wild, Mamie tucked some stray hair behind her ear, leaving a little dirt behind. "Hi," she said, looking from Kinsay to her two plants. "Do you need to borrow my trowel?"

I like shiny things.

It was much colder that December morning than those days the Giant Squid might otherwise have been seen basking in the sunlight. It must be winter now, or close to it, and Bartholomew Henry had made the decision to visit the surface of the lake. This was not for pleasure, but business. A matter of concern had arisen.

Old Bartholomew broke the surface of the lake in its centre, and glided towards the shallows. He waved his tentacles just above the water to attract the attention of anyone nearby and to beckon them closer, slow and polite but insistent all the same. Messages needed passing along, issues needed addressing.

Maya had not been expecting to see the squid at all. She had tried numerous times to catch a glimpse from her dorms as inspiration for her origami - it was a bit tricky trying to animate an origami squid for Evan and his friend without actually seeing the movements. So the girl had taken to taking a stroll by the lake between classes, assignments, tutoring and preparing Christmas gifts. This particular stroll, the Slytherin held her origami squid in a gloved hand, prepared to yet again not see Bartholomew.

But she did.

Not entirely too sure if she was just imagining the Giant Squid popping out of the lake or if it was real, she moved closer.

Was he... waving his tentacles?

She rubbed her eyes and kept moving closer. He was... definitely there. Was the squid dangerous? What if he dragged her into the depths of the lake? Maya had done enough reading to know it could be quite dangerous below the lake's surface. But still, curiosity got the best of her and standing a safe distance away from the squid, she tilted her head slightly. "Hey there," she said rather timidly, not sure if he could even understand her. "Are you alright?" Maybe the squid was hurt and that was why he had finally come to the surface? Did squids even like cold weather?

Strange.

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

Feeling that the weather was more cold than he expected it to be, the Hufflepuff had gone back inside to grab his black and yellow scarf. With it wrapped around his neck to keep the skin warm, Daniel pushed his hands deep inside of his winter robe he had charmed to stay warm and made his way over to the domes.

But in order to reach them, he had to walk past the lake and normally he wouldn't pay much attention to it but today something had. A tentacle of what could only be the giant squid came to mind and Kinsay's question in comc came to the forefront of his mind. But he had no time to think about it because soon after he had noticed the tentacle, he also spotted Maya approaching it and seemed to be talking.

......that's right! The Giant Squid could talk! He had forgotten about that because he had never actually met it before. Which meant that the second year's curiosity took control and he moved closer as well until he was near the Slytherin. "Maya. What's up with Squidward?"

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness.


GaaaAAAssSSSsssSSSPPPpppPPPPP!!!!!!!!


Kinsay James had spotted the tentacles from far away and she couldn't believe the sight before her. Were her eyes deceiving her? Was that really who she thought it was? Was this REAL LIFE? So, of course, she HAD to find out. Which also, of course, meant that she was heading towards the lake in an all out SPRINT.

For her first order of business: "You're not dead?????" This was a proper shock. Biggest surprise of her life. And then for the second order of business, she looked over at Daniel: "His name's Henry, actually." Unless they replaced the dead Sir Henry with a new squid named Squidward - which was pretty cruel because he'd likely die too. So inhumane!

Also. Hi, Maya. Kins would have offered her more than little finger wiggle, but there was important business to attend to. She had so many questions for (the alleged) Sir Henry, so if the squid wouldn't mind putting his own business on hold for a little while... It would be for the best. She had waited three entire years for this moment, after all.

But, come to think of it... "This might be a trap."

Evan had actually been heading back up to the castle from studying on the grounds when he saw Kinsay go SPRINTING by. And while it was probably not smart to follow, his curiosity had been piqued and he changed his direction following after her. He happened to glance further ahead too, and paused in his pursuit. Was that.... Did he see...? He started moving again, his own gait quickened now.

Had Sir Bartholomew really surfaced??? And he looked like he was intentionally trying to get the students attention. So Evan followed after Kinz, stopping once he reached edge to stand beside Maya. He'd heard the giant squid was friendly, but he was still cautious - especially with his sister involved.

But he said nothing as other students did, preferring to observe in this moment. How cool was it they were actually seeing the giant squid??

Oh, that was fortunate. Bartholomew was relieved to see the denizens of Hogwarts still responded to the call when help was needed. Not that they could have any idea what he wanted yet, but he was grateful for the audience all the same.

"Hello to you," the Squid greeted the first girl. "As a matter of fact..."

Oh dear, clearly some real introductions were in order. Bartholomew Henry could not recall meeting any of these particular students before, and they seemed wary. Or under the impression he went by a different alias. "Bartholomew Henry, at your service. I live here in the lake. Very much alive." Last he checked at least. But, on that note... "I bring news from the depths. Would you be prepared to pass along a message? It is a matter of ... great importance."

"I know that his name is Henry" Whether if he actually knew or not wasn't of importance right now. However, when she mentioned that this might be a trap, the Hufflepuff took a small step back and away from the lake. Kinsay might be an airhead but what if she was right? He didn't want to drown in a lake! that was just sad!

News from the depths? Pass along a message? of great importance? "What is it?" he asked curiously before looking at Maya, Kinsay and Evan. Wondering if they were as curious right now as he was.

She was honestly quite mesmerized by the squid. The way that his tentacles were swinging around... a bit elegant though clearly conveying a message. Maya's head turned quickly when she heard someone join her. "Oh hi Daniel," she said. She gave the younger boy a soft smile before looking back at the squid, stifling a giggle when he called the squid "Squidward".

She shouldn't have been surprised that not too long later, Kinsay had joined them. Seeing her, Maya quickly stuffed her origami in her pocket and returned the finger wiggle that the elder student had given her. And not far behind was her brother who stood right beside him. She smiled over at him as well before turning her attention back at the squid....

Who greeted her! Wow. Who else could say that a squid who spoke said hi to them? Not many, she reckoned. A bright smile stretched across her face, eager to hear more of what Bartholomew Henry had to say. Her expression quickly turned into one of worry when the squid said he came with news from the depths. "Are we in trouble?" she asked.

Did Daniel really know? Not that Kins would actively call him a liar without solid proof, but he did strike her as the type. No offense. "Then why'd you call him Squidward?" She folded her arms across her chest and gave him a look, before turning to give HENRY her full attention. She knew Henry was his surname, but to say Bartholomew would be a mouthful.

Kins didn't take her eyes off his tentacles when Evan joined the group, instead choosing to pay very special attention to the Giant Squid. Still, she'd practice caution because Sir Henry was supposed to be dead. Hearing both Daniel and Maya's questions, she was almost hesitant in adding another one to the mix.

Except.

Someone needed to play bad cop and seeing as her mum was one of the best aurors ever, Kins knew she could do it. "Wait!" She shot a look over to Daniel, Evan, and Maya. "A message?" This was fishy (... squidy?). "How are we even supposed to know he's the real Sir Henry?" Did everyone just forget they had a polyjuiced Headmaster for a whole year!? If the real Sir Henry was dead... Then... This squid could be a fake.

The fact that Sir Henry could speak was certainly a surprise to Evan. Actually, that he was surfacing at all was a surprise but he was still especially surprised at the speech. Had he heard someone say before that he could speak? Did anyone else know? When even was the last sighting? He now also had a lot of questions, but given the fact the squid seemed on a mission he was hesitant to take up any more of his time to ask them. Maybe Sir Henry would be willing to have a discussion later, once whatever the message was had been delivered. "We'd be happy to pass on a message for you, Sir." Who was going to say no to such a polite request?

Eyes turned towards the Hufflepuff when Evan noticed him looking around, and while he didn't know Daniel was wondering about the curiosity level of all the others - Evan had a feeling it showed on his face that yes - he was just as curious.

Maya got a smile in return, before he turned his attention to Kinsay and her question, eyebrow furrowing a bit. "How would he not be? I don't think many people here would not what he looked like to try to transfigure themselves into looking like him..." And was that even a possibility? "And uh... I don't know how someone would polyjuice as him..." A because... did squids have hair or anything to use as an ingredient? And B.. when you tried that on a creature, didn't it turn into a weird cross? Kind of like Hermione as Mrs. Norris like he'd read about in his texts. "I think we're probably alright, Kins. And even if we aren't... passing on a message to the Professor's and just telling them about the encounter should be enough for them to discern whether they should be heeding it or not." Right?

Right.

Ore-son Welles in hand, unearthed once again from the tin Atlas kept the pet rock in and had done so all of first year to defy and hide from The Hoods™ and subsequently forgotten about and remembered and then forgotten again only to be remembered again, Atlas was on his way down to the lake to wash him off when he came upon a group of his peers all huddled around...something. It was a little hard to see because of the glare coming off the water.

But then there was no glare, only tentacles, and the SQUEAL that was drawn out of the Gryffindor's mouth was almost so shrill it was for dog's ears only. Unfortunately for everyone else, however, it was still very much within the human ear's range.

"BARTHOLOMEW HENRY! BARTHOLOMEW HENRY! BARTHOLOMEW HENRY! BARTHOLOMEW HENRY! BARTHOLOMEW HENRY! BARTHOLOMEW HENRY! BARTHOLOMEW HENRY! BARTHOLOMEW HENRY! BARTHOLOMEW HENRY!" the third year chanted as he marched and pushed a little his way over to the giant squid he had heard SO much about from his mum and dad, entirely forgetting how uncool it was that he had a rock with googly eyes glued on to it in his hand. He overheard some of the conversation prior to his arrival, but he did not exactly acknowledge all of it before asserting his presence.

"Is it true that Godric Gryffindor was an animagus who took on the shape of a giant squid and you are from the offspring of said squid family?" Just something he had seen carved into the underside of a study table in the common room. Along with instructions to a game that he and Remy enjoyed playing together now that they had perfected enchanting pillows to act as their lava monsters. And then there was some talk about a message being passed on...so Atlas pulled out a bit of parchment from his pocket (and shoved his pet rock INTO the pocket once he remembered he had it and hoped no one else had seen it) and a pencil he had whittled down to practically nothing. For note taking.

Had to make sure he had the answer to the animagus question AND whatever this message was down pact, after all.

"Trouble?" Hmm, it was not for squids, giant or otherwise, to make such a proclamation. He couldn't know, not in any real detail, how things stood up at the school; his knowledge was limited to the lake, the directly adjacent grounds, and whatever information he heard from those castle-dwellers he spoke to. Usually the groundskeeper, but it had been a while. "The lake is in trouble, or rather, those who live here." Which brought him to his mes-...

One more. "Hello there," Bartholomew said to the newcomer, waving his tentacles in greeting. "As far as I am aware, that is not the case, apologies if this disappoints."

All but one of the children seemed ready to hear what Bartholomew had to say, and this was as good a time as any to say it, and so he launched into it without further ado. "Thank you, children. You see, the plants in the lake are dying, more every day. I believe eventually we will lose them all. You see why this is a problem, of course. The creatures in this lake need those plants in order to live." Homes, food, and those who could not breathe surface air relied on oxygen provided by the plants. "I - we - would be grateful for any assistance. Please do what you can." Their options were rather limited, down in the depths. Bartholomew Henry's tentacles were rather tied, and this was the best he could do.

Skimming said tentacles over the water, Bartholomew addressed the one student's concerns. "If you know a way I can prove my credentials, I shall of course be happy to oblige."

Evan shot a look at Flamsteed when he pushed his way through the small crowd, there was plenty of space after all still, though the slight annoyance he might have felt at this quickly changed to curiosity hearing the Gryffindor's question, and eyes turned back to the giant squid. He hadn't heard this theory before, but it certainly sounded interesting. Though the thing he was most hung up on was... was it possible to have an animagus as a giant squid? Could he pick an animagus should he ever want to go that route? There was not many things he'd been independently researching this term, an attempt at having more FuN, but this seemed a good exception.

Even if it was a bit of a bummer that the theory was probably incorrect.

The note taking was a good idea and he was also glad Atlas had thought of it. But the news was.... concerning. The plants underwater were dying? The greenhouse hadn't been looking too hot either, as of late. Evan frowned a bit, tilting his head at the news before asking a further question. "Excuse me, sir. Other than the plants dying, is there anything else weird about them you've noticed? Or are any of the creatures getting sick?" More information might just be able to give Professor's Flamsteed and Paszek a better idea of how best to approach the problem.

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

"Does it matter? no" he told Kinsay after giving a small nod to Maya, acknowledging her greeting. And yes, he was aware that Squidward was not a squid but an octopus. Her question of whether the Giant Squid was the Giant Squid nearly made him roll his eyes. But he refrained from doing so and instead agreed with what Evan explained although he wouldn't have used those words but more along the lines of "Who would choose to look like a Giant Squid?" oops? Had he said that out loud? "No offence" he added to Sir Henry.

As a loud squeal could be heard somewhere close by, Daniel turned his head away from the Giant Squid and to the source of the sound when he got pushed aside a step. It was just a small step but once he took note of who it was he immediately felt annoyed.

As the Giant Squid began to explain what the troubles were, Daniel took a step closer because he too wanted to listen. So plants in the water dying = creatures in the lake dying. That.... ok that was was terrible news but couldn't he have come with something cool? Like, a giant pirate ship had been discovered on the bottom of the Lake. Or a whole new species had been found! This was kind of boring because everyone was dying weren't they?

"He" He pointed at Atlas "can go and get the Herbology and Magical Creatures professors. They'll know what to do"

There were few thing Atlas felt the need to take diligent notes on, so congratulations to Mr. Bartholomew Henry for being one of the few things that warranted the effort without question. Though it was effort that quickly soured when his outlandish theory was disproved by the giant squid - but the Gryffindor did still write down what was said verbatim and mouthed the words while doing so.

He had just finished scribbling down 'd-i-s-s-a-p-o-i-n-t-s' when Bartholomew Henry went into the real meat and potatoes of the moment and that left the Gryffindor using all kinds of abbreviations for some words, a sort of coded language that worked for him with note taking and had made sure that Aries couldn't just copy off him whenever he wanted and guaranteed that whatever knowledge Aries did get from Atlas' efforts were because Atlas willed it.

Anyway. Not the important thing of the moment and his little piece of paper was not nearly big enough to fit everything being said. But he did still have the other side so over the paper flipped and then behind the ear went the third year's pencil juuuust as Daniel started pointing at him. "How about YOU go get the Herbology professor," he retorted with a point of his own. "And I'll go get the other. We'll cover more ground if we split up." Oh! Another thought. "And we should take a water sample...a few! Professor Varma taught me some magical forensics last term so we can examine the water on a microbiological level." Did Atlas entirely know what he was talking about? No...but it sounded fancy and convincing. "Anyone have any phials on them? Taking a sample here in the shallows would be good and then..." The blonde's blue eyes cut back to their super awesome visitor. "...could...you..." Speaking to the not descendant of Godric Gryffindor now. "...perhaps bring a phial back up from the depths of the lake? Please?"

Did puppy dog eyes work on giant squids like they did on dads?

Goodness. "None taken." Bartholomew Henry was far too polite to say so (unlike some), but he probably wouldn't have chosen to look like a human either. Different wishes for different fishes.

Bartholomew considered the boy's question for a moment, looking about as pensive as a squid is capable of. "Not as yet," he said at last, rather decisively. The 'yet' was significant; he'd so far been thinking mostly of the other creatures in the lake losing their homes and food sources and such, but that was a good point too. If something was harming the plants, who was to say it wouldn't directly harm the creatures - himself included - too. "But I shall continue to observe, and take notes of my own."

But not literal ones. Bartholomew lacked the necessary conditions for parchment and quill writing, though he did have plenty of ink at hand tentacle.

At least it seemed as though progress was apt to be made regardless, with talk of professors and the like being fetched, or at least informed. No immediate solution, but Bartholomew Henry was relieved all the same. "Of course," he said to the boy speaking of phials and samples and looking at him in the manner of a woebegone grindylow. "Anything at all that may help." Bartholomew reached out a tentacle and unfurled it, expecting one of these phials to be delivered post haste.

Though she was trying not to look it, Kins was feeling pretty lousy. Not only did Daniel’s reply cause her to deflate just a bit, but no one was taking her seriously. Except for the Giant Squid, which was ironic, considering that he was the one she was skeptical about in the first place. Maybe she owed him an apology. ((But only later when everyone else was gone because Kinsay didn’t want to look even sillier in front of the others. She was already embarrassed enough.))

She intentionally didn’t bother answering Daniel, his question was rhetorical anyway, and only responded to Evan with a shrug. At least he was nice about it. As for proving credentials? It hardly seemed important anymore. Even though it felt the MOST important only minutes ago. ”I’ll try to think of something,” she replied quietly to the Giant Squid, her mannerisms subdued.

Without any phials to contribute or a role in their new mission, Kins felt useless. Useless was one of the worst feelings ever. She’d leave this one to the boys. They had all assumed charge anyway. ”Good luck,” she turned, only speaking to Evan as Daniel had been nothing but dismissive and Atlas hadn't even acknowledged her presence at all. With that, she turned and started walking off. Where to? Anywhere that wasn't here.

Truthfully, once fingerpointing was happening all around with the younger boys, Evan also ignored them. Which was easy to do given the fact Atlas had asked about a phial and he was now rummaging through his bag anyways in order to pull one of his empties out. What did not go unnoticed though was Kinsay's mood, though he didn't understand the reason for it. Wasn't meeting the Giant Squid her dream? At least it had been center of a lot of their time together. And yet.. she did seem to him like she was so enthralled now. Phial in hand, he frowned a bit and would have asked her if she was okay, but she was wishing him luck and moving on. He made mental note to find her later, and check in to make sure everything was alright. Maybe once they'd figured out what was going on too, the giant squid would agree to resurface and Kins could ask more of the questions she wanted to without everyone else around.

Attention shifted back to Bartholomew Henry, and Evan offered an appreciative smile when he answered and advised he would report anything else new. Evan stepped forward then, gently placing the phial in the outstretched tentacle. "Thank you for your help, sir." He phished around for another so he could take some samples from the shallow water as well. "And good idea, Atlas. Maybe we should get Professor Hernandez as well so he can assist with the forensics part?" And Headmaster Trent should probably know too, but maybe it would be best to let the other Professor's coordinate with him.

Or would it be best to go straight to Headmaster Trent and let him talk to his staff? ... Who knew. It probably didn't matter much as long as someone was told.

"Anything you can think of," Bartholomew replied in his politest, gentlest tone, to the girl. He watched as she turned and left, perplexed and concerned by the sudden change in demeanour compared to her arrival. "I say."

What did he say on the subject? Nothing more than that for now. Bartholomew Henry might have, another day, but there were some more, fairly unfortunate and pressing matters at hand tentacle. Speaking of which, he closed his own tentacle around the proffered phial and started to glide back out of the shallows. "Thank you as well, young man. All of you."

Yes, yes, this was all very much a relief. Bartholomew did not doubt that action would be taken, action beyond his own capabilities. Not that he still didn't have his part to play. "I shall return and deliver your water sample post haste." Perhaps he ought to spend more time surface level in the days and weeks to come, until the problem was resolved. For the time being, he'd be delving back into the depths.

Contrary to his usual behavior, remarkably so, he was not purposefully ignoring anyone...THERE WAS JUST A GIANT SQUID NAMED BARTHOLOMEW HENRY RIGHT HERE AND THAT SORT OF HAD ALL OF HIS ATTENTION.

And since there had just been talk about going to getting professors and all that, Atlas was under the impression that Kinsay (when he did notice her while pocketing his phials full of lake water) was off to do. Hopefully not to the same place as other people, like himself who had dibs on the Creatures professor. It was a good idea to split up and be more efficient...and it was daytime so it was safe to do so.

"Uh....maybe?" he offered the older Ravenclaw with a shrug. "Probably....but I'm gonna go find Professor Paszek...probably should go to Professor Kazmi and Professor Flamsteed before Hernandez....since the grounds are like...all of their domain, sort of." Their fields of expertise.

Pats his pocket, just to double check that the phial was there, waved goodbye to the giant squid, and then took off towards the barns.

"Thank you, again sir." He remembered to tell the giant squid as he began to retreat. Evan would just remember to check in periodically, since maybe Sir Henry would resurface to give them any additional information. Turning back towards the other students as he pocketed his own phial as well, considering Atlas' suggestion before giving a nod in agreement. "I hadn't even considered Professor Kazmi, but you're right the groundskeeper should know." Evan glanced at the others still around, "Does someone want to go check in with Professor Flamsteed? I think I'll go let Professor Kazmi know too." And if no one else was able to go to Flamsteed, perhaps it was appropriate to let the Professors just handle everything from there themselves?

He'd wait upon instruction.

Giving his own way of farewell to the others, Evan jogged his way towards the Flying Instructor's hut.
