Default Wooden Bridge


A covered bridge of questionable construction that connects the courtyard to the rest of the grounds, this rickety bridge has been damaged and repaired many times over, the most recent major incident being its total collapse during the battle at Hogwarts in 2104. The structure was ultimately brought down by fire and duel, an incident which was not without casualties.

Since then, the wooden bridge has been restored, and is back to its former... glory. Although it still looks like it may fall apart again and send anyone standing on it into the ravine below again, it probably won't. Not so soon, at any rate. Still, any exceptionally loud creaking should be reported to the groundskeeper, just in case.

This long and narrow bridge has a rich history attached to it, and deserves your respect. On your way between the grounds and the castle, why not stop and admire the view for a moment?

Stepping just onto the bridge Charlie sat down with her legs between the slats. She wasn't super outdoorsy but she needed the fresh air. Things felt tense and it was only the first week. Seriously this was going to be a long term if things kept up like this. Flipping her bouncy curls over her shoulders she took a deep breath of the fresh air. The air felt clarifying to her soul... well calming might have been the better way to look at it. She was getting excited though. Her brother would be here next term. She couldn't wait for that at all, even though he'd be a little first year.

Ever since running or walking around the grounds in the name of physical fitness had stopped being necessary, Nem tended to stay inside the castle, other than for certain lessons, collecting resources from around the grounds, or what the Headsman so wittily referred to as 'running away'. Even Lucien wasn't out here much anymore; Nem kept him close.

Not today, however. No Luciens of the kneazle or the human variety were seen to accompany Nemesis as they stepped onto the wooden bridge at the end where it met the rest of the grounds. They swept down the bridge, passing the one point - with which they associated a pair of wide, bright blue eyes, and a cherry wand - without so much as a pause or a blink. Did not stop, in fact, until they reached Rivers, who had been visible from the other end of the bridge.

"See anything interesting," Nem asked her, though in a tone so flat it hardly sounded like a question at all.

Hearing a voice her head whipped to the side seeing Nemesis. What were they doing out here? Well she could ask herself the same question. Instead of going with her first instinct to the statement she glanced up since they weren't going to sit down any time soon. "Nothing more than the usual. Suppose that's good." She was tired of interesting. She was ready for calm, and cool, and a slightly less adventurous year.

True enough, Nem had no intention of sitting down, but that was only because that day had found them in a more restless state than usual. Not the poorly regulated toddler kind, which they knew well from past experience with their youngest siblings. It was more in the sense that if they did not keep up some kind of motion - be it physical or mental - they... well, Nem wasn't one hundred percent sure of what would happen. They'd never let it reach that point before, and for good reason.

Standing was fine, so long as the conversation was decent. Judgement pending. Nem joined Rivers at the side of the bridge, leant against the side, and looked down into the chasm that dropped steeply away below. "Suppose," they said, without clear conviction. "Careful though, yeah. This bridge can be deadly."

And, just for the record, wicked boring also. Unlike Rivers, when Nem stood here and took in the sights, they didn't yearn for a calm and quiet year, but experienced a sort of bereft recollection of the last time they'd really felt alive. The irony.

They drummed their fingers incessantly on the wooden railing. "What do you do for fun, Charlie?"

Kicking her feet one last time before shifting to a standing position. It was no fun to have to constantly look up at someone you were talking to. Taking the opposite side of the bridge she leaned against it gingerly afraid she'd fall backwards. It was a wonder that Nem was always moving. staying in motion. It baffled her that they were always into something.

Sighing she huffed a bit because the whole castle could be deadly, no? "That said, the whole castle is kind of deadly if we're being honest." But at this point what was safer? It seemed like everywhere there was a large risk of death. Okay maybe she was just extra cynical.

"Fun?" Oh... What had she done for fun before everything else. She wasn't a wild child like the 'bad crowd' she didn't always study like the nerds. What was it she did for fun aside from sit up in the astronomy tower for hours and hours. "To be honest, I roam around a lot to see things and people. Create clothing for when we're not in our uniforms."

She left off the fact that normally she was chasing her twin brothers around at home trying to prevent a huge fire from happening where they were concerned. All that to say she sounded boring with a capital B.

"That's true. Anyone could bring, say, a stone pillar down on someone else at any moment." Anyone could collapse a bridge. Anyone could destroy walls and make deadly projectiles out of the rubble. Few would, but anyone feasibly could. "I'm surprised nobody's had a mishap with the moving staircases yet. And we do have that one actively homicidal tree." But that was just Hogwarts. No. No, Nem had been thinking about more specific, unexpected incidents up on this bridge. The greater good old days, and all that. Given all the huffing and puffing over there, Rivers was too busy being a Teenager™ to have given it much thought.

Fun. Nem gave a nod to confirm - just taking a survey, see - but the Gryffindor's answers got them nowhere. "Oh. Cool." This time, the lack of conviction really was clear, and it sounded very much as though 'boring with a capital B' was a familiar sentiment. Arms folded across their chest, they drummed on their thin bicep, and made like they were about to say something. Bit then they stopped, maintained their silence, and staring directly at Rivers without really seeing her as they hunsted down the evasive thought.

Her eyes continued to watch them carefully as they continued to speak. He had a point those staircases were menaces, and if you didn't time it just right poof there you go you're gone and have to spend twice as long to get where you're going. "That tree is horrible and shouldn't even be there." She partially mumbled because she hadn't been paying any attention once and nearly got taken out by it. Sigh she learned that lesson quickly.

The half hearted response to her answer of what she liked to do made her eyes narrow and stare directly at Nem. What did her answer matter. And if she knew he was surveying students what for? What exactly was he up to? because he is the reason that Gryffindor had to start the term off with a negative point balance.

Between schoolwork and worrying over the NEWTs she was pretty certain she would fail, Cece needed a break. Deciding fresh air was also on the menu for a better headspace, the blonde headed outside with no real destination in mind. Wandering could be nice sometimes, you know?

After slipping through a crowded courtyard, the seventh year found herself on the bridge, pausing in the middle to just..be. The bridge was still standing after so much had happened to it just like Hogwarts would still be standing long after she was gone and it just made her feel a lot.

Gosh she was emo lately.

Valentina really needed to get away from the stuffy common room. Everyone seemed to be hanging out there lately, which she didn't mind normally - the girl loved being around people - but she really needed some fresh air.

After vaguely walking around for a while, she found herself at the bridge. Oh, no. One of her least favourite places at school. It was old and creaky - always looked like it was going to collapse any second. Um no, she should leave.

But, Val wasn't alone.

--- WAIT. OHHH. OMG. She knew who the older girl was, obviously. Everybody did. Cece was the most beautiful girl at school!! Wow. Should she introduce herself? Or maybe the older girl wanted to be alone. She stood by the entrance to the bridge, feeling extremely unsure. But, WOW. She was so pretty!

”Hey.” It didn’t take too long for Cece to feel the eyes on her and she offered the younger girl a smile. ”The bridge is okay to walk on, if you’re worried about that.” She demonstrated as much by jumping up and down not once, but twice, landing hard on her feet each time.

”You’re Valentina, right?”

Ah. She stepped onto the bridge, slowly walking forward.. kind of feeling a little stupid AND embarrassed. "I know this bridge has a lot of history but - it's so old and I always feel like it'll fall apart any second."

WOW. She knew her name!! OMG! "Yes! And you are Cece, right??"

"It certainly looks like it could," Cece said before smiling at the younger girl. "Magic gives it that little extra something it needs to keep standing after everything, though." Even after the war. Even then. It was strange to think of the people who'd fought here. Died here. And now the students were back to walking across the bridge, worrying about tests or their love lives or a bad hair day, just like they had before everything went down... It was a strange thing how things kept moving along even after something as horrible as the war.

"That's me," She confirmed. "Just out for a walk? It's a nice day for it. Little cold, but that's never bothered me much." Besides, cozy clothes were lovely. Like wearing a warm hug around with you wherever you went.

Valentina nodded slowly. Yeah, true. She actually wondered how old this bridge was - and how it was strong enough to hold even after all the things that happened here. She should go look it up in the library, even though it had probably been covered in class at some point but history was never something she was good at.

"You like the cold then??" Valentina looked at her, slightly wide eyed. She was definitely a summer person - never really liked the cold. "Are you a winter person?"

Mumbled or not, Nem caught it. They, unlike a younger Rivers around the Whomping Willow, were paying close attention, though mostly to what was being said. Too close, some may argue. Not Nemesis, but some people. All the same, they opted not to mention that this business of 'shouldn't' was a little subjective.

Really. Narrowed eyes and dagger-glares were not exactly a new experience for Nemesis, but it was notable how often it happened these days when there was little cause for it. Maybe it was because everyone here was so touchy - the Gryffindors especially - but maybe it was something else. They met Rivers' stare across the bridge with not the slightest change in their own expression, other than that now it seemed more they were looking at her, rather than through her. "Yes?"

Heights were something that had never really bothered her, even on this rickety old new bridge so when she was leaning against the side, Ingrid had a look on her face of someone who was at ease as the wind whistled and whipped a few stray pieces of hair at her face.

Walking the grounds of Hogwarts was something she’d always loved whether it was in waist heigh snow or brightest of sunshine so seeing her here wasn’t out of the norm, even if the bridge did look as though it was about to fall over at a moments notice. No, today what might stand out to those who know Ingrid Luck was the lack of a sketch book clasped in her hands or a paint brush which was typically tucked behind her ear. Although, that may have been to do with the fact that there wasn’t really anywhere to sit or lean said sketchbook on.

Taking a deep breath, Ingrid let the cold winter air fills her lungs and closed her eyes before eventually, she began to make her way across the bridge and back towards the castle. It might almost be spring but Scotland in winter was still a little too chilly for her.

He usually tried to avoid the wooden bridge on their morning walks together - his and Padme's that was, who was no longer looking very kitten like though she certainly still had all the energy of one. But this morning, she'd decided to choose her own path and that left Evan with no option but to follow her, eying the bridge as he did so. He could remember seeing the aftermath of the collapse. And while he'd been lucky enough to not lose anyone that day, he often wondered about the people and kids who HAD lost someone in this spot. Was it hard to look at it? Reconstructed and once again standing tall, as if the past had not happened.

He could only imagine it would be. But he also didn't LIKE to imagine, which was why he avoided this area. As he jogged a bit more to catch up with Pads, he could see another figure on the bridge as well. And the closer the male Nam and cat got, he was able to recognize that it was a known figure and Ingrid was also out for a stroll. He decided it didn't hurt to try to catch up and offer a greeting, which was exactly what he did.

"Hi Ingrid. Just out for a walk?"

And while he'd been lucky enough to not lose anyone that day, he often wondered about the people and kids who HAD lost someone in this spot. Was it hard to look at it? Reconstructed and once again standing tall, as if the past had not happened.

He could only imagine it would be. But he also didn't LIKE to imagine, which was why he avoided this area. As he jogged a bit more to catch up with Pads, he could see another figure on the bridge as well. And the closer the male Nam and cat got, he was able to recognize that it was a known figure and Ingrid was also out for a stroll. He decided it didn't hurt to try to catch up and offer a greeting, which was exactly what he did.

"Hi Ingrid. Just out for a walk?"
With the cold winter air whipping at her face, Ingrid was almost relieved to be heading back into the castle when she heard the voice of someone behind call to her. What they were saying was a loss to her because of the loud wind whistling around her but she still slowed down enough for them to catch up to her, a polite smile on her face.

“Oh, hey Evan. What are you…,” but her voice trailed off when she noticed the Padme walking past them both, apparently sure of the path she was walking. “I guess I know what you’re up to now,” she laughed, her eyes following the creature as they always did whenever there was any type of animal or magical creature in the vicinity.

“I’m just kind of out here looking for some new inspiration. Different places to draw or some patterns of designs in nature. And also, y’know, fresh air.”. She needn’t go into her being ill and not being able to breath through her nose for days on end or the fact that she had been a snot rocket machine. No. Despite knowing Evan since her first year at Hogwarts, he didn’t need that much detail.

Before she had released him from having to answer the question, Evan had opened his mouth to say just out for a walk but seemed Ingrid was able to reach that conclusion once she saw the kitten trampling on ahead. "I never realized how much cats could like to go for a walk, but this one is obsessed. Rain, snow, wind or sun. Doesn't matter to her." Even if sometimes he worried it could get so gusty the wind would carry off her small frame. He hadn't attempted leash training, but days like today made him wonder if perhaps he should.

He wasn't sure he realized Ingrid had been into drawing as well, a recent past time for him. But then again, he also probably hadn't spent near enough time trying to get to know Ingrid either. He tended to do that a lot with his peers, even with trying to be exponentially better than he had before. "New perspective can certainly help with creativity. What do you usually focus on drawing?"

Ingrid knew better than most that cats too enjoyed going for a walk, although it was more common in dogs than most. Cats to her always seemed so independent. A creature that enjoyed their freedom to roam and move amongst the bushes without anyone the wiser. Evan’s cat however was slightly different and seemed to enjoy the company. Despite finding that interesting, almost to the point where she wanted to quiz him on the cat’s origin, she held back. “That must be pretty nice though? I don’t actually have my own pet but I know I’d want one that likes being around me and wants to go out.” It was always funny to think that she didn’t actually have her own pet when they kept and looked after so many but those were technically the shops and not her. Besides, getting attached to them did not help the matter one bit. “I am quite lucky though. I do get to spend a lot of time around creatures which is almost like having a pet. I think?”

With a nod and smile, she simply nodded towards some of the plants that were starting to sprout up around them as the winter cold slowly started to subside. “There’s some really cool patterns around here when you look really close at things but I guess you’ve got to really kind of…stop and look,” which a lot people didn’t really do. “I really enjoy designing patterns for clothes. Like dresses and different things, y’know? I’m still working on actually putting them on things though,” she continued, aware that she didn’t actually spend much time with Evan despite them being in the same house and the same year. Suddenly feeling slightly more shy than previous for some reason, she quickly turned her attention to the route they were walking.

His previous experiences with cats had been primarily Jinx, who was chubby and far preferred to laze around on the back of the sofa or in his cat bed rather than show any interest in any form of activity, especially walks with one of his humans. The pups on the other hand? Having an Australian shepherd had certainly insured plenty of walks. Pascal was forever a game of hide and seek. Though none of those had been his pets, Pads was the first who was his. "It is. She's my first pet and I only got her over the summer. But having to add the walks to my schedule and getting to explore more with her has been really nice. I feel like I've seen more of the grounds this term than I ever had before." Hearing she got to be around a lot of creatures regardless though certainly peaked his interest, an eyebrow raised a bit as he decided to go ahead and ask. "That sounds like a nice set up. Does someone in your family work at a shop or the zoo or something?"

He followed the head nod, looking towards the plants she had pointed out and pausing to look at them as well. It was nice to see such a mundane looking plant still out and surviving on Hogwarts grounds. It gave some hope. "I've only just started trying to doodle so... I guess I haven't really stopped to look yet. But you're right. Even just the pattern of the veins in these leaves." He squatted for a second to look at it better, petting the cat as she came over as well. Hearing her mention her interest in design, he stood back up and glanced back over towards her, walking again. "Design? Did you assist with the designs as well then last term for the play?" He knew there had been a lot of opportunity for that as well, though he hadn't noticed who went where outside of his own grouping.

“That’s nice. I enjoy exploring too honestly. Maybe I need to actually get my own. I walk enough around the grounds to have one,” pausing for a moment to actually consider what type of creature she’d actually want. She wasn’t really a cat person, per say, but then again, she’d never been allowed to get close to one either because they were always being sold. Coming back out of her stupor, she nodded and smiled “We have our own magical creature menagerie. It’s a loooot of work and it has its ups and downs but I like it,” no matter how many times she has to muck out all of the creatures or sell one that she tried to sneak away. She forgot sometimes how very little her house mates knew about her. She’d done her best to avoid all of the school drama for so long that she’d seemed to have avoided…well…everyone, almost.

Eying the plant some more, noting the little patterns and the way the veins on the leaves protruded in some places more than others, she couldn’t help but smile at the little thing. Maybe she’d come back and make a rubbing of the design in her book. “It’s cool that you’ve started though. What do you enjoy drawing? Or doodling?” She simply couldn’t resist looking at art no matter how mundane or basic it may be, not that she was saying his was of course.

Hearing his question set off a series of events in Ingrid as she eyed him for a moment. First, the blush. Then the reactionary look down before finally, the look away and mumble quickly. “I thought about it. Even turned up for the auditions but I guess…” Pausing for a moment before she continued “Sometimes, I get a little embarrassed about sharing my ideas. With one or two people, I’m usually fine but the idea of something of mine being put on show for the whole school…no thank you.” Backing out after agreeing to do something wasn’t something that she took lightly or something that was easy to do for her because she could be stubborn when she wanted to be but the idea simply did not agree with her, much to her own, and her father’s dismay.

"It's been my favorite part of the term. So I would certainly recommend it." But he supposed it also depending on what type of animals she liked and if faculty would approve it if it was outside of the three mains. He'd been lucky enough to just like cats so he hadn't had to consider it. "Do you have a favorite type of creature?" Whether something she could bring with her or not - Evan was interested based on the fact he loved speaking about creatures in general. He'd been about to suggest going to the Magical Menagerie in Diagon Alley if she did want one, because the shopkeeper there had been so helpful and patient with himself and Jude when they'd ran into each other there, but he stopped himself as she mentioned her family actually owned one. Which.. he hadn't not known, but that was really cool. "That sounds really awesome! What's your favorite part of the work?" Actually, that seemed a silly question, because he figured she also got to spend a lot of time with the creatures and that certainly would have been his were he in a similar position.

Art had been immensely helpful in him working through things in his own head, so he was also glad he'd started and that Ash had encouraged him. Something he was very thankful for, though he wasn't sure he'd told her that yet. "Well, actually I started with just trying to sketch out all the runes around the castle grounds. There's an awful lot of them." But he was rubbish at Runes so that had soon lost it's charm based on the fact studying them had actually been near impossible after. A fact he did not relish. "But I've started trying to sketch some of the creatures around the grounds. Or sometimes some tattoo type design." Merely for the fun of it all. He was not good -- at least he didn't think he was -- but his friends had been kind in their remarks. Granted, he figured they were also biased though.

...He eyed her curiously at her reaction to his question, brow furrowing a bit as he wondered if that was something he should not have been asking about. But as she spoke more... he did kind of get it. His friends on one on one bases were find to show his sketchbook too. But would he pull it out in class to show a group of his peers? The likelihood was no. Even with their more artsy craft projects, he'd chosen to do things that were easy and took very little skill or effort so that he didn't have to open himself up to any type of ridicule. While he imagined Ingrid was good at what she did - he also knew that didn't always help with putting people at ease. "That's understandable. It is a lot of exposure, and if you weren't ready for it yet - you weren't. I'm sure there will be other opportunities in the future."

Headmaster Trent did like the drama club, after all.

“I’ll think about it,” she replied with a smile as her mind wandered to the many different creatures they sold, pausing and some whilst skipping others all together. All in all, a pet that could come with her to Hogwarts was the option that she figured would be the best because she wouldn’t want to be in the same situation as her sister Thess and Spook, her fox. “I don’t know if I could pick a favourite but I have always had a soft spot for crups. I know that’s a bit basic but they’re always so cute when they come in. Like little cruppies.” Her smile was wide now and her gaze almost in a trance as her mind flashed back to the last batch of cruppies that came into the shop. Oh how she’d been on the cusp of asking her father to keep one. “What about you? Do you prefer feline creatures or is there something else that you’d love?” People always seemed to say dragons or phoenixes but she never really saw the draw. They were flashy and cool but not as a pet which was always the end goal for her. As for his next question, she replied easily without giving it a second thought. “Just caring for the creatures. They have their own personalities and they’re like people almost and kind of being close…it makes it hard to say goodbye because we kind of have to sell them but it’s still a nice feeling.”

The runes around the castle were interesting but it was never quite enough for her to really spend a lot of times drawing. She preferred patterns, something that nature provided for her. “Well there’s enough of them around the castle so you’re not going to run out anytime soon. Have you find any really interesting ones?” There must have been some that not many people had found. Hogwarts always seemed to have a lot of secrets although she herself had never really found any. Or looked. Creatures however were more her thing. “Oooo, which ones have you tried to sketch so far. I’ve really been trying to catch the unicorns on the edge of the forest but they don’t really come close to the edge,”.

It was a little embarrassing to admit out loud but not in a terrible, hide your face in the sand way. No. Hide your face in the sand was reserved for showing her ideas in front of everyone. Talking in front of everyone. Fine. Acting even…wasn’t a massive stretch. Showing her ideas? No thank you, even though if she wanted to continue with this outside of Hogwarts, she’d have to, eventually. “Maybe in the future,” she agreed, looking up now from the cold, hard ground. “Around you going to share yours? Y’know, your tattoo ideas or runes? Turn into some kind of tattoo artist or something?” She looked him up and down for a moment and almost laughed as she imagined him head to toe, covered in tattoos.

Y’know, your tattoo ideas or runes? Turn into some kind of tattoo artist or something?” She looked him up and down for a moment and almost laughed as she imagined him head to toe, covered in tattoos.
He nodded at that, giving a small smile back in response to hers. He even gave a small chuckle when she mentioned crups were her favorite, not because he thought that was something basic but because she did. He remembered feeling like people though he was on the basic side as well, given the fact his favorite were kittens which was very mundane. But they were so cute, and Padme had proven to be the perfect companion for him. He did loathe the idea of next term though where free time with the animal would be less and less. Perhaps Maya and Lisa would be willing to spend time with her. Or Jude, as he had offered before. "I'm sure some would say it's basic, but I don't think it's bad to just... know your favorite and fawn especially over those." And cruppies WERE pretty darn cute. "It's cats for me." Not even so much kneazles, though they were still pretty. "We do have other animals at home though, like a dog and a chameleon, but the cats have always been my favorite." So if she were basic, he was even more so. If he were to pick magical animals though... Jarvey's were pretty interesting. He tended to avoid Fwoopers though. "That sounds like it'd be really fun. Goodbye would definitely be difficult but... at least you know they're going to a home." Or somewhere they'd be well cared for.

Hopefully.

There were SO many runes around the castle. He'd been surprised. "The ones in the courtyard are interesting. If you stare at it hard enough you can find patterns to them, but... I still haven't figured out what it means." Probably because he was rubbish with Runes, which was why he'd dropped the class this term. Which ones? He flushed a bit, realizing how predictable his answer probably was. "The Kneazles. I've spent a good amount of time with them. Claudine introduced me to this really regal looking one, President." And he'd been a very willing model during his doodle sessions outdoors. "The unicorns would be amazing though. It's too bad we can't venture even a little further into the forest." He understood why, but disappointment could still exist.

Was he going to share his? Evan truly didn't have a problem sharing his, but considering he knew his skill level was not up to par to most artists he had no goals of using it for a career. Maybe art therapy like he'd talked about with friends before, but perhaps not still. It all depended on if he wanted to explore his interest in muggle Psychology or if he wanted to pursue a magical career with creatures. It was all... very up in the air for him. "I don't think I'd ever actually be good enough to sell any of my pieces, or put something forever on another persons body. But I don't mind showing people my artwork, and I have tried doodling my own pieces to use the tattoo charm on for my skin." He was sure people didn't think tattoos seemed like a very Evan Nam type of aesthetic, but truthfully... he loved them and fully planned on getting his first once he'd turned 17. Though thankfully he had time to figure out what he wanted before then.
