cookie The Yeti Field Trip

The 2103 Yeti Field Trip
continued from Care of Magical Creatures Lesson #2


It was the next morning, Saturday, the 3rd of February 2103, and the campers were up bright and early to start their Yeti hunt. Each group had a chaperone with them and a different trail to explore in the snowy mountains of Tibet. It was freezing cold outside, but the kids were armed with their wands and small glass jars, in which they could carry around a small bit of bluebell flames. Some kids also had binoculars and omnioculars and whatever else they'd brought along with them.

Time to explore and try to observe a yeti or two or three!

Ivy had bundled up from head to toe with leggings under her jeans under her snow pants, 2 pairs of socks on inside of her fuzzy snow boots, and several layers of shirts on under her winter coat. She was wearing one of those ridiculous ear flap hats with a fuzzy lining and had a scarf covering most of her face. The only thing she hadn’t layered up on was her gloves as she’d found it hard to keep a good grip on her wand with two pairs of gloves on. She walked, or perhaps waddled was a more accurate description, out of the girls’ tent and made her way to the gathering area, a small jar already containing blue bell flames clutched in her hands to help keep her fingers warm. ”Morning, Professor!” she said, but she wasn’t sure he could understand her between the scarf muffling her voice and still talking a bit funny from her broken then-repaired nose.

Ashley had dressed rather lightly. She didn't mind the cold, surprisingly. She nodded at the professor and at Ivy. "Morning." Ashley was prepared. I'm SO not dying today, she thought to herself. She stuck her stuffed animal in her bag, just in case. You never know when one might come in handy. Actually, it just made her feel better. It was like a guardian. Or something. Speaking of which... "Professor, will you promise you won't leave us alone to die because you are using us as bait? Just checking. Please don't leave us to die? Pleaseee." She pretty much was of the opinion that if a professor took you to see potentially dangerous stuff, they could be trying to kill you. And she was not going anywhere near a yeti before the professor promised that he wouldn't let anyone die.

Violet had felt warm and comfortable last night after preparing her meal of noodles and pork-sauce, but this morning, emerging sleepily from her tent, she felt it was much colder than she'd remembered, even though she had tried to dress warmly. Even the hot tea hadn't helped. It was the early hour, no doubt; Violet hated, hated, HATED getting up early. But apparently the early bird found the yeti, so here they all were. She just hoped Professor Williamson was more reliable on an outing than Headmaster Trent had been in the Forbidden Forest. "Here, Professor Williamson," she mumbled as she joined the other students.

It might have been really early on a Saturday, of all days, and it might have been freezing cold, but Morgan supposed it was worth it to go on a field trip, especially if they were going to see a real, live yeti. He was starting to get a little cabin fever from being inside the castle so much, so he was actually kind of restless to get out and about.

All bundled up and wearing his omnioculars around his neck, Morgan made his way out to the where the group was beginning to gather. "Hey, Professor!" he greeted him loudly, as if the louder he was the more awake he would feel. Not to mention he forgot that yeti were shy and probably didn't like exuberance. "So where do we go first?" Let's see a yeti already, yeah? And where were his mates??


Celyn was SO excited to be here and get the chance to see a yeti in its natural habitat. The third year Ravenclaw loved all creatures great and small, and she'd spent plenty of time caring for animals in different parts of the world, but yeti were one type of creature she had yet to observe.

She had already been awake for a little while and warmed herself up with a nice cup of tea, but had soon gotten herself ready with all her winter clothing and her hair in two braids with knit hat over top. She quickly finished her tea and readied herself a jar of bluebell flames before heading out to the gathering.

Smiling brightly, she waved to the three younger girls, the older boy, and the professor already there. "Good morning!" she greeted them cheerfully, even though it was MUCH colder than she'd ever been used to. It didn't matter, she was just eager to explore Tibet and hopefully get to see some yeti!

”Anyone else have trouble sleeping last night? I was way too excited for exploring to get much shut eye.” Luckily she almost always had energy to spare, which would surely come in handy on their journey through the snow. She’d rushed to get ready, not wanting to miss even a minute of her time here. Her mess of blonde hair had been tamed into two long plaits, a cozy hat pulled down over her head to keep her ears warm. Then she’d layered up, not wanting the cold to distract her from the awesomeness that was yeti observation. The bluebell flames flickering reassuringly in the jar she was holding was an added line of defense against the elements.

Coming to a stop by Morgan, the blonde offered her friend a grin and then looked at Professor WWW expectantly, ready to get going.

SPOILER!!: characters in this post, a reference spoiler


Cooper Branxton was READY for the day. It had taken quite a bit of effort to actually fall asleep though. Did anyone else take the time to look at the SKY? It had been STUNNING! Sure the clarity and depths were somewhat similar to the night sky at Hogwarts, down to the Milky Way, but it was also totally different. He had already used three rolls of film documenting the sky and the surrounding scenery...not to mention that SUNSET and the following SUNRISE! Needless to say, the third year was running on pure adrenaline at the moment and buzzing as though he had eaten a yeti's weight in chocolate frogs.

Dressed for the day, Cooper exited his tent while adjusting the lens to his camera. It was one with an epic zoom so he could really get a close up shot or dozen of any yeti they spotted. Sure, he had done this before with dad but the setting was different and the yetis would be different and this time he was going out without dad's supervision! Of course, the other professors were here so he was going to be supervised...unless he accidentally wandered off. Which was possible. It would really just take a butterfly to catch his eye and then the Ravenclaw would be off following it with his camera glued to his face while trying to capture the perfect picture.

"Good morning!" he chirped boldly to the group at large before making his approach towards Professor Williamson, which of course meant he was passing by a couple of friends along the way. "Me too!" he chuckled in response to Cecelia, eyes wide and a little darker under them than usual. "Used up several rolls of film already! Were you awake when there were all these shooting stars? It was AMAZING! I took pictures. Loads of them. I'll show you once I get them developed back at Hogwarts."

Lens finally twisted into place, Cooper lifted it to his eye and did a few checks on the aperture and shutter speed settings. Gently twirling until Celyn came into the view finder, Cooper took a picture of her while she was looking at her jar of bluebell flames and grinned internally.

....OH!

"OOPS! Left my jar inside the tent. I'll go nab it right now."

No one give him any coffee, please. He clearly did not need it.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Early freezing mornings were not unusual to Josh. Though as much as he THOUGHT he was accustomed to the cold, nothing could have prepared him for the brick to the face that was the icy wind as he stepped out of the tend that morning and made his way sluggishly over to the group. And blast of cold air and Josh found himself grateful he had packed his ski mask. So into his coat pocket went his hand, out came the mask, and over his head it went.

SO much better.

It also hid his yawn, minus his eyes watering. So really just a win-win situation.

Jar in hand, the sixth year stretched his arms hiiiiiiiiiiigh up over his head and gave his back a bit of a stretch as well. It had not been the same sort of camping pops took the family on, though most people called it glamping, but it had been...really nice? There were ways that his sleep could have been better but still...no real complaints here.

"Morning," he greeted to the group at large.

Serena stretched her arms as high a her quilted coat would allow and yawned beneath her neck warmer. If she thought it was chilly in Hogwarts during early mornings - well, then their first morning in Tibet was absolutely freezing.

She clutched the bluebell flames that she had conjured into a glass jar earlier this morning closer to her and padded out of the tent.

"Good Morning!" She greeted enthusiastically to the group that was assembled in the middle of the campsite. Sure it was way too cold for her taste, but that doesn't mean that one should be both irritable and cold! And besides, it was for an exciting adventure! She couldn't wait to see a Yeti!

Ah, here came the kids now. Williamson stood with his hands cupped around a hot black instant coffee which was nearly boiling. He'd just poured it from the kettle on the fire. "Morning, Ivy, Ashley...." And ope, she seemed keyed up already. He blinked at her a few times and then chuckled. "I promise not to use you as bait and I will do my best NOT to let you die, as long as you promise to do the same." He crossed his heart and everything with one of his hands. Usually it was the Hogwarts kids who had a death wish, not the professors!

"Good to see you, Violet, Celyn, Morgan..." Williamson winced just a bit at the latter's loud greeting. "Well, there's a few trails for you all to choose from. I'll take us out there in just a sec..." He just had to wait for a few more kids to roll up.

Williamson tried taking a sip of his coffee, but burnt the little tip of his tongue that had touched its hot surface. "Dammit," he cursed to himself, nodding to Cecelia as she joined the group. Someone was excited, eh? Hopefully she wouldn't crash and run out of energy too early in the day.

"Morning, Cooper. Nice camera ya got there." He nodded to the boy. "Like the hat, Josh." It was a good look for him and it looked warm to boot. Ah, and there was another one of his older students. "Hi there, Serena." Glad to see they hadn't lost anyone overnight. He glanced quickly at his watch and then nodded to himself, leading the group over to a copse of trees that was marked with a brown bit of cloth, purple bit of cloth, and orange bit of cloth.

Williamson gestured toward the three colored trails behind him. "It's about time to get going, kids, so I'm going to walk you toward the three trails we have here at the IYCOT. Trail A, occasionally marked with brown ties, goes here into the trees and toward a cave where yeti excrement has been documented in the past. Trail B, purple, goes out in the snow toward a cliff, so you'll have to be careful not to wander to the edge if it starts snowing. Trail C is one we're still mapping, but it starts here and goes around the camp toward town. Trail C, the orange one, had the last yeti spotted on it last week, but we're not sure how many we're dealing with or when we'll see them again. A and B appear to be hunting paths, as we've seen footprints and dead animal parts on both paths in the last month."

He gave the group an eying and raised his coffee mug toward them all in a salute. "Alright, split up into three groups, not too many to a group, and I'll lead one of ya." Frankly, he'd love to stick to Trail C if only because it was closest to the camp and thus not likely to be out too long. "Do some exploring, take some notes, and keep your wands out. We'll reconvene at lunchtime. You should be able to cover your entire trail before then."

And if there were no questions, they should get going! "Go on, get out there now!" Williamson made a gentle shooing motion to the class.

Default Trail C, anyone?

"I'm going to try Trail C, does anyone want to come with me?" Violet called out. She was sick of trying to find a partner or group to join and decided she's try taking the initiative this time. Besides, Trail C sounded like it was closer to camp, which meant maybe less time in the cold!

"Serena," she said, recognizing the girl she had met in her Common Room one evening, "Hi! you wanna go?"

As Ashley came up next to her and spoke to the Professor, she gave him a look that clearly said I told you so. ”She meeeeaaans the Headmaster tried to kill them in Defense Against the Dark Arts. I told you!!” She folded her arms across her chest haughtily. She had been RIGHT. And he hadn’t believed her.

HMPH

Following along toward the trails, Ivy considered her options. She couldn’t decide if she actually wanted to see a Yeti or not. She definitely didn’t want to go in the poop cave. ”I’ll take the snowy one!” she was used to the snow after all.

Ashley nodded worriedly at the professor. Pfft. As if trying to not die made a difference. She was very much attached to life, and that never stopped her from getting seriously injured. "Whatever you say." She would take his statement at face value, because she still trusted him for now. "I'm going to trail C as well." There had been yeti sightings, it was closer to camp, it was not a hunting path, and there was no cliff as far as she knew. It was, in her mind, the safest option. But knowing her luck, she would probably find herself in trouble no matter what she did.

SPOILER!!: +1 ; Josh and Cooper in my next post


Mavis was truly neither here nor there when it came to seeing a yeti. This was not to say that she was not NOT excited about seeing one buuuuuut she was not all THAT interested in Care of Magical Creatures. The only creatures she ever planned on handling were dogs and HAD already done so masterfully in the role of Annie. Yeti's were MUCH bigger than dogs...but if you squinted a bit they did sort of just look like big white dogs.

She was pondering this as she only half listened to Professor Williamson speak, wondering if it would be possible to catch and train a yeti to tap dance, when she overheard a group of girls saying UGLY things about HER daddy.

"DADDY WOULD NEVER!" she barked at them. So many people, even KALE, had been saying such horrible things about daddy...about how he and mama weren't ACTUALLY soulmates and that he must be having an affair and that was why he was being so distant...that he had a WHOLE NEW family somewhere else. And now these girls, her so-called peers, were calling him a murderer! The first year couldn't take it. Too many people were trying to rain on her parade and she would not have it! "You...you take that back! Right NOW!" Mavis even stopped her foot for emphasis and folded her arms across her chest in a huff as she glaaaaared at the Ravenclaw (Ashley) and Hufflepuff (Ivy) who had accused her dad.

Her head spun around and she looked at Professor Williamson with big ol' SAD puppy eyes. "Professor! Make them take it back! It's...it's..." What was the word she was looking for...it sounded like slender but wasn't that. OH! "SLANDER!"

But this had decided it for her. SHE would be going down trail C TOO, if for no other reason than to make sure these two spread no more LIES about her daddy.

Waddling - yes, waddling, that was as much movement she could manage with all her layers - further into the center of the group as Professor Williamson explained the different trails available to them. They all seemed particularly nice, and if given the chance, she would have loved to explore all of them - but alas, she did not want to die in the Tibetan mountains.

So Trail C it was!

She walked over to Violet and smiled at the invitation. "Sure!". She heard Ashley, her other newest friend declare that she would also be trekking the ever-popular Trail C and grinned "You wanna come with us Ashley?"

Speaking of Ashley though, Serena couldn't help but notice that she, along with another student was...arguing (it wasn't much of an argument really if they were declaring the truth) with another first year (Mavis) - who, by the sound of it, seems to be Headmaster Trent's daughter.

Poor kid.

She was probably not going to let it go too. Serena was pretty sure that her little Gryffindor heart was dead set on protecting her Daddy's precious name even if they did try to kill them, but sure.

She turned to the girl in question and smiled "Hey, I'm sure they don't mean it like that - Headmaster Trent probably didn't know that there were Acromantulas in that part of the forest" LIIIIIESSSS. She was hoping that the reassurance was enough to calm her down - it would not do anyone good if she y'know, pushed anyone who had anything to say about the Headmaster off a snowy cliff

"That is not the correct use of the word slander," Ashley coldly informed the girl who was quite rudely yelling at her. "Slandering someone is when you spread lies about them to damage their reputation. And, to quote an old muggle musical, 'I didn't say anything that wasn't true'. Not that it would matter to you I suppose." She was calm, but inwardly annoyed. It was TOO EARLY for this, and she was not nearly as scared of Trent's kid as she was of Trent. "But whatever. I won't inform anyone of the truth when you are in earshot. I can see how that would upset you, and I sincerely apologize. I'm not taking anything back though." To use another old muggle saying, SICK BURN. She said it rather robotically, but with a subtle tone. It was unclear whether the tone was sarcasm, anger, contempt, or tiredness, but whatever it was, it wasn't sincere. She wasn't trying to be cruel. ANd she wasn't. SHe hadn't even said 'your father's a scoundrel and so it seems are you' because that would be unfair, even if it would be awesome to say. But no way was Trent's daughter going to stop her from telling the truth. However, she did not contradict Serena for the simple sake of diplomacy and not getting yelled at forever. "Lets go. We have yetis to see. Or something like that."

Serena sighed the argument continued. Why? Why had she thought this was a good idea? She wasn't a Hufflepuff, she didn't need to make peace with anyone? Why did she think that bringing two squabbling first years on one trail was a good idea?

"Alright! Break it up!" She snapped "The next girl who picks a fight is going to be left as a sacrifice for the Yeti." Not that she would ever feed them to the Yeti though. As if Professor Williamson would even allow it. Do Yetis even eat people? She'd have to remember to ask that before the start of the hike.

Like how Headmaster Trent had almost sacrificed them to the Acromantulas

Oooooooh snap.

Ivy hadn’t heard Mavis approaching. If she had, she 100% would not have said anything about the Headmaster. She didn’t like causing conflict, and that was exactly what she’d done. As several people started arguing, Ivy stared between them wide-eyed. She didn’t know what to do. Ashley was, like, her only friend so she felt like she should back her up, but she also wanted to apologize to Mavis too.

Luckily, one of the older girls intervened before Ivy had to make a choice. Now she was extra thankful she had chosen a different trail, but it seemed she was the only one who HADN’T chosen Trail C so far.

As an awkward silence stretched on, Ivy said, ”So... uh... Trail B anyone?” Yes. Let’s get back on topic here.

Default Gemma trail B, Eliana trail C?
Puff by day, snake by night | Mj's bestie | Always UP to Something...

SPOILER!!: Characters here


Cassie Kitridge- Professor
Gemma Kitridge- Second Year
Eliana Low- Fourth Year


Of course Cassie had charmed her area to be the most comfortable place, so sleep was no issue and she was up bright and early to make sure all her makeup and things were in order. She felt that one needed to be ready for the day to have a successful one.

Leaving her tent she gave a few good morning steps as she looked around, "Oooooh Professor" her voice sounded sing song as she got closer to Williamson, "Which group would you like me to take?" How fun was this all going to be, though she tried to block out all the animal chatter going on in her head. She was going to focus and enjoy the students.



Who was sna....

Oh, right, her mother. She was always such the morning person and Gemma just couldn't handle such things in the morning. "Mum keep it down, please" She rubbed her eyes as she threw her cloak over her shoulders and gathered with everyone else.

"Will this be dangerous professor?" She was hoping for the yes, but it was a school trip, so probably not with so many adults. Her eyes searched for a place to go, maybe she could find someone that would want to slip away and go on their own adventure and see what they could see.

"I'll go with trail B" Heading that way she stood beside Ivy.



What was she thinking coming on this trip? Eli wasn't sure but right now she was stiff from trying to sleep in a tent and even magic wasn't going to fix this. How was she supposed to do her hair and make up in these conditions?

Staying pretty quiet she headed out with the rest of the class and looked around. What group should she head to? She wondered if they were going to have to walk far and hoped it wouldn't be too rough of an are to walk in. She wasn't really the coordinated type and figured if there was a path with rocks she would probably trip.

Moving towards a group she decided C sounded like the good way to go.

Violet was smiling when she saw Serena and Ashley were coming over to join her on Trail C. Then she hear the arguing, and Serena trying to smooth things over by telling what Violet thought was a complete load of bunkum about the Headmseter--how COULD he not have known about the Acromantulas?! And even if he didn't, he saw them come into that clearning and promptly walked off and left the students alone with them--that wasn't an accident, no way. Just thinking about it made Violet's temper start to boil again. But she was not about to get into an argument with a couple of First Years. Especially out here...in the cold...when they were just about to go off looking for Yetis.

"I wonder if there really are any Yetis out here--they're supposed to be rare and hard to find," she commented, hoping to get the younger girls on a new subject. She hoped they wouldn't be sniping at each other the whole trip--maybe they wouldn't both be in the same group.

Cecelia just KNEW Coop would get it and she nodded eagerly when he asked about the shooting stars. It was a whole different kind of magical. "Bet your pictures are going to be so beautiful. I can't wait to see!" She liked the way he saw things, the way he captured them. He had a good eye, at least from what she could tell.

oh goooooosh! This was IT, the MOMENT it all started for real! All she'd really needed to hear was trees and cave to know that trail A was the trail for her. If she was a yeti, she'd definitely be relaxing in a cave somewhere, resting up and staying cozy. It was the best option for sure.

She was momentarily distracted by the interaction between Mavis and some other younger girls who were talking bad about the headmaster. She didn't even disagree with the girls, the headmaster's behavior in the forbidden forest making it more clear than ever that he did NOT have their best interest in mind when he had held that little..search party. Still, she made a mental note to update Kale so that he could check in with his sister, make sure she was okay.

"I pick trail A, professor. Who's with me?" She glanced at Cooper, offering him a hopeful smile.

Morgan wasn't certain that the louder he got the more awake he would be, but he figured it couldn't hurt. Because he was still tired, but he was also plenty eager to see yeti. "Oh, hey, Cece," he grinned at his housemate as she waited next to him. "Nah, I never have a hard time sleeping." When he wanted to, that is. "I am pretty excited though."

He turned his eyes next to Williamson as he explained the different trails that they could take. Um... how was he supposed to decide based on that information? Morgan started to think about it but was distracted by Mavis's outburst and then another little girl lecturing her, which seemed super weird. And because he was protective over his bro Kale's sister like she was his own little sister, he had to come to her defense.

"Or maybe just don't trash talk someone else's dad," he informed the first years (Ashley and Ivy), not unkindly, just matter of fact. "Bet you wouldn't like it if someone was trashing your dad in front of you." That was just a fact for basically anyone, even if he DID think Kale's dad was acting pretty horrible this year. He felt bad for both Kale and Mavis, but Kale especially.

He knew the younger girl could hold her own, but he had her back of course. Undecided, Morgan thought he might go down Trail C too and spotted Eliana joining the group. "Hey, Eli!" He gave his yearmate a grin. "Gonna join us?"



Celyn glanced up from her jar of bluebell flames as more people started to arrive. She gave a bright smile to Cooper as he came over too, and her eyes shifted to Cecelia also standing nearby. "Hi, Cecelia," she pleasantly greeted the other girl, feeling a little like she hadn't noticed her, which made her feel a little weird, especially as she continued talking to Cooper about shooting stars.

"Oh! Were there shooting stars?" she asked suddenly, unable to help herself from interjecting. "I wish I'd seen them.." She liked wishing on them, even if she knew that was a silly notion, but they were also so pretty to see. She glanced down at the dancing flames in her jar for only a moment, but when she looked up, Cooper was heading off again. Oh... She smiled a little, watching him leave. It was clear he was excited.

But when Williamson told them which trails they could take, Celyn hesitated. She supposed she'd wait till Cooper came back with his own jar of bluebell flames before she decided because of course she wanted to be in the same group. He was something of a yeti expert and she was eager to hear him talk about his passion.

Default you all are just too fun :3 [ Cooper: A; Josh: B, Mavis: C]
astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf

Tugging a little at the fabric over his nose, Josh grinned at Professor Williamson's compliment. Not that the man could SEE that ... but maybe he could see it in the eyes. "Thanks, professor." His mum had got it for him some time ago before a family ski trip. He had kind of hated at first but it had grown on him after a while. Sort of had forgotten that there was a dog print on it. Listing to their professor while adjusting the straps on his backpack to make sure it was secure and tight against him, he decided that he would go along trail B.

Because...sure. Why not. A cliff and a warning that wasn't concerning at all. Though his Omnioculars felt like they would be put to best use along here in the event of snow.

So it was that the sixth year Gryffindor made his way over to the younger Hufflepuffs (Ivy and Gemma) and gave them both a cheerful thumbs up with his gloved hands. "Team B!"


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Mavis shot the older Slytherin a NASTY look as she came to the defense of the other students saying hideous things. "How ELSE am I to have heard their words then, HMMMM?" Seemed very pointed and purposeful to HER and Mavis prided herself on being a self proclaimed master of the spoken word. Mostly because she had practically every showtune committed to memory and heart, but STILL! "THEY knew what they were saying!"

And then...and THEN...this other first year was trying to quote musicals at her. TO A TRENT?! Leave it to a Ravenclaw to try and correct word choice though. Mavis was having none of it right now. NONE! "And YA shoulda watched your mouth before you talked about my father though." She could play this game TOO. Though it was not nearly as fun as playing with Kale and Noah. "Apology NOT accepted."

Mavis arms went across her chest again in a HUFF. She couldn't, wouldn't admit to being terrified by daddy's change in behavior. It just HAD to be Headmaster Daddy versus Daddy Daddy. This was just...a firm Headmaster Daddy. That was all. Her family was not falling apart and soulmates were absolutely REAL - LOOKING AT YOU, KINSAY! She also didn't like being this person. Mavis had never been the malicious sort or one to pick fights, like a REAL fight, like she was right now.

"LOOK WHO IS TRYING TO KILL WHO NOW!" she shouted while thrusting a finger at the older Slytherin again. SLANDER! HYPOCRISY! And Professor Cassie, Mavis ADORED her but she was saying NOTHING about ANY of this. The betrayal hurt deep down in her enormously large heart. She was feeling terribly fragile, emotionally, and her eyes started to mist up when she heard Morgan come and defend her AND her daddy. No one else was...and it HURT! "Will you come down trail C too?" Her eyes were wide and hopeful. SOMEONE else had to keep an eye on these girls and their SLANDER.

And keep Mavis from getting in her first physical altercation.


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

He was pretty stoked to develop them, being a nature photographer WAS a top aspiration for the third year, and he grinned at Cecelia to seal the deal that he would be showing her the finished products. Might take a while because...there were a lot. A LOT.

"There were! I should have woken you up somehow...sorry about that. I kind of got all caught up in the moment," he chirped at Celyn while bouncing on his heels a bit. Maybe an enchanted bit of origami or something...was that within the rules? Maybe it wasn't. "I'll show you pictures too! One roll I can develop with the moving solution." So it would be sort of like seeing it as it happened, but it wouldn't truly capture the beauty of the moment. Close maybe. He needed more practice still.

NOW back with his jar and the trails being explained to them, Cecelia caught his attention again. "Trail A for me as well!" It was a no brainer at that point. Situating his jar so his hands could be free, it peeking out from his bag that had previously been fireproofed for, well, reasons unrelated to anything here and everything to do with getting to close to a Blast-Ended Skrewt just this ONE time. "Come on, Celyn!" he chirped on, assuming she wouldn't mind coming along too and slipping his hand in hers while his other went around Cecelia's. "Trail A for adventure!"

Alrighttt. Maybe she should not get in a fight, even though she would probably win. It would not be good for her image, and she really didn't want to. Fighting was not fun. Even if you did win. "Fine. Actual sorry for talking about your family. The headmaster probably didn't try and kill anyone or use them as bait." Even though he so did. She said it convincingly, with as much sincerity as she could muster. It was a decent amount. She laughed a little. "Sooo I guess we're all quoting muggle musicals now? Nice." she couldn't help it. It made her smile. Everyone liked showtunes so much. Feeling sufficiently calm to turn around without watching her back, she turned to a older kid. Morgan, wasn't it? She looked at him uncomprehendingly, like '???'. "Is that personally directed or just in general? Like, everyone do that? Or... do.. do you actually expect me to do that? Are you trying to make a point or are you actually expecting me to defend my family?" It was a real question. She was confused. She thought that everyone should tell the truth at all times, so yeah. Defending her family when they did something wrong was kinda a different concept to her. She called her family out all the time. If someone was trash-talking her dad, she would probably agree. She stared at the boy. Did normal people do that? Was there something she was missing? "We should get started. On the field trip. Or whatever."

Sarah thinks I'm cute | Shan's safe space.

Gabrielle was glad that she'd mastered warming charms, and equally glad that she'd remembered to bring her beanie (or, rather, that she found it in her backpack). Tugging it down over her ears, she bounced a little on the balls of her feet as the Professor spoke, eyes roving over the nearby area as though the Yeti was just going to appear behind one of the other students.

That would have been cool.

Dodging around the other students as the formed groups, the Gryffindor made her way over to Josh. This expedition was going to be a lot more fun with friends, she decided. She had no idea what group she' was joining, or where it was headed, but at least when she inevitably fell over she'd have a friendly face to help her back up.

"HI." Gabrielle beamed at the group.

Good Lord. Serena was not up for the drama this early in the morning. It was cold, her boots were wet with snow and mush, and she did not sign up for screaming first years. She pinched the bridge of her nose and grimaced.

The Slytherin glared at the tiny screaming girl and sighed. Trents.

Rolling her eyes at Mavis, the Slytherin turned and turned to Ashley. "So Trail C, yeah?" For the sake of her sanity, she might just need to start ignoring Mavis - or else she would not be able to guarantee that they would be emerging from that trail as complete group.

"Seriously though." She suddenly asked, turning to Professor Williamson "Professor, what do Yetis eat? Do they eat people?" Or noisy little girls?
