Default Welcome Back, Hogwarts!

It's the start of a new term at Hogwarts! Seventh year Gryffindor student Ariel Jones wants to start her final year with a bang, and what better way to do that than a back-to-school bash? Colorful flyers advertising the event have been handed out, and on the second Saturday in September, the Room of Requirement has been transformed into the perfect party place.

Guests are greeted by upbeat music blasting from a pair of speakers at the back of the room. Colorful streamers and balloons in each of the house colors hang from the ceiling; the balloons burst at random times, raining confetti on the people below. A table full of party horns and hats in a variety of colors and styles sits at the left side of the room. Honk the horns, and you’ll hear a roar, growl, caw, or hiss, depending on the color you choose. Another table on the other side of the room holds a bowl of color-changing punch, cups, plates, and an array of cookies in flavors inspired by the four Hogwarts houses: red velvet for Gryffindor, butterscotch for Hufflepuff, blueberry cheesecake for Ravenclaw, and mint chocolate chip for Slytherin.

A hidden disco ball illuminates the empty middle of the room in a rainbow of ever-changing colors. It’s the perfect place to dance the night away! So come in, join the party, and be sure to say hello to the hostess (and her brother) while you’re here!

OOC: This rp takes place in the current school term (term 56: 2102-03) and is OPEN to any and all characters at Hogwarts, including professors. Play as many or as few characters as you like, and you may headcanon that your characters know Ariel if you wish!

Luz was tired. Bored and tired and not in the mood for any nonsense tonight. And honestly? A party sounded like the perfect idea to get away from school work and stress and the loss of both of her tutors and boy drama (or the lack thereof almost) and relax or something.

After going through about twenty different outfit combinations, Luz had finally settled on something and made her way over on her own. She was pretty sure Ronan had to study and Igor was... off being Igor(???) which left her to arrive on her own. Which honestly? Probably worked out for the best seeing as she was greeted by several less than pleasing sights. She stood in the doorway observing Maia and Josh. Oh. And was that Hero on his way to join them? Hm. That whole situation didn't look the least bit enjoyable. Though Hero sure looked handsome tonight. And maybe Josh did too.

Pause.

A look in another direction and she was greeted by Peggy and Spencer. Since when did those two get so chummy? SUCH an odd friendship. Who even introduced them? Peggy and her trains... Spencer and his... Spencer... ness.... She did need to hangout speak with him again. But... maybe after this whole thing was over.

Another glance and she was eyeing up one Jackson Bole, and she was definitely not going to head on over his way. So she continued to stand in the doorway, deciding on what to do next or perhaps debating where to go as her options were fairly slim tonight.




Unlike Luz, Lark was dressed as casually as they come. A pair of skinny jeans that were perhaps a bit too loose around her waist for her liking, summer had been unkind, a simple cropped graphic tee revealing her bellybutton, and black converse. She'd arrived only a few minutes after the dark haired sixth year that was now blocking her path.

Silently, she waited, hoping that Vince would come and then they'd push past the prissy Ravenclaw together. He'd promised over and over that he'd meet her at the entry way and yet here she was on her own. Again. And lowkey missing Matteo who she hadn't spoken to since their fight over break. She was still waiting for an apology.

Growing more annoyed by the second for various reasons, she stared at the back of the Ravenclaw's head before slipping past her (barely), and heading right on over to the food table, the main reason for showing up at any party tbh.

Okay but these mint chocolate chip cookies were INSPIRED and Cecelia wiggled as she om nom nommed them, enjoying herself already. Her blue-green eyes (that looked more green than blue at the moment) landed on Auggie as he approached and she offered him a friendly wave as her mouth was full of cookie-goodness at the moment. Talking with her mouth full was a BIG no-no even if it took EXTRA effort on her part 'cause she always seemed to have something new and exciting she wanted to share. She just needed ONE minute and she'd be ready for a chat.

Ummmmmm!

The whole kiss on the hand THING had caught Miss Summers completely off guard and the blonde went PINK, feeling all kinds of sheepish as she let a nervous giggle escape her. Her hand fell to her side when Auggie released it and she grinned a little, looking around before nodding her head eagerly. "It lightens my mood, too!" She liked seeing everyone look so happy. Happy was ALWAYS a good look!

Speaking of looks, it looked like Auggie was saying hellos to other friends now and Cecelia took a moment to herself to process the whole idea of hand kisses and how they made her hand feel all warm and why that might be and then there was a Phoebe, which was IDEAL because Phoebe could probably answer ALL those questions for her in one go.

"'Course I'll dance with you! I can't wait to dance. The cookies are delicious so if you're going to snack, try one of those. Also yes, this dress is perfect for twirling, which is my favorite part about it, honestly." The fourth year answered the questions quickly and enthusiastically, hugging Fee's arm and looking around, soaking it all in. She didn't know WHY, but suddenly parties felt cooler somehow, more important too, and she wanted this one to last forever. "Want him? Want him for what? He kissed my hand, you know. Do Italian boys always do that? Should I have kissed HIS hand back?" She'd missed her chance if the answer was yes and she was feeling sort of conflicted about it. "Like match people for dates or something, you mean? Do you think people would want that?" Was that a thing now? It made her stomach all flippy just thinking about it.

Following Phoebe's gaze, the blonde found Cooper standing arm in arm with someone she didn't really know very well and she ignored the uneasy feeling in the pit of her stomach at the sight, finding it weird that such a feeling would be associated with such a good friend. "I know Coop, Feebs. We're great friends! We're going to have lots of adventures this term. We pinky promised on it and everything." Cecelia smiled a little at the thought, a smile that grew as she offered Coop a wave.

"Hi Morgan!" This was what she was talking about. More friends meant more fun and Cece just hoped that all her friends were ready to join Kale on the dance floor, because that's where SHE'D be going now, thank you.

"Come on, you guys! Let's go dance with him!" She was already bouncing on the balls of her feet and then she was moving towards her friend, not able to resist the call of the music.


--------


Oh thank Merlin. "It's not my fault you're perpetually late, Aboli." Fi flashed her friend a teasing smile and leaned against her some, finding comfort in her company.

Wait, what? "No, I definitely don't think we should interrupt whatever awkwardness is going on over there." For reasons. More reasons than one, actually. Aboli KNEW this, gosh. Luckily someone was watching out for her because Jackson Bole was suddenly there and providing the perfect distraction. "Hey Jackson." The blonde offered one of her half smiles, taking him in. Jackson had the whole boyishly handsome thing down, did he know? "Yeah, this is Aboli, prefect extraordinaire." She nudged Abs, biting back a grin. "I love any excuse to dress up, so I'm all for a party."

Taking a few snaps of the decorations mostly, Cooper's attention easily slid back to Celyn's and nodded. "Yeah. I am also kind of hoping dad sends another howler along with it. It was kind of nice hearing his voice." From the one sent a couple of days ago that rattled the Ravenclaw common room. His dad was TRULY the best. Not many could appreciate the alternate uses of a howler and use them in such an affectionate manner. "You know...I should send HIM back one. Gosh. How did I not think of that before sending a letter back. I'll do that once my trunk arrives." Perfect plan. Dad and mom probably missed hearing his voice around the house too. It was the first time he had ever been away longer than a weekend or so.

Looking around the room a bit, Cooper caught a glance of Phoebe and Cecelia and his face brightened instantly as he offered them both a return wave. He was going to have to introduce Celyn to them both in a bit. Once they greeted the hosts because that was what manners heavily suggested. But not before he was lifting his camera to his eye and snapping a few pictures of the duo and zooming in a bit so he could capture some close ups of them looking so effortlessly lovely.

"My cousin and super good friend," he explained in brief to the blonde on his arm. "I'll introduce you later. They are also some of the best people!" Because that statement included Celyn. "The sort where the inner beauty is what makes them look even more beautiful on the outside." Which was sort of becoming a little confusing.

Grinning and with some casual bounce to his step as they walked, he glanced back to his new friend. "I really appreciate the book lending, by the way. It's even easier that we do homework together and all. You brother's notes are awesome too. Even if I need you to translate them for me." Because her other brother had SOME handwriting. "Um...I don't know who Ariel is...but I sort of know her brother because we're in the same house. It's more an observational sort of knowing though. Like when you are all camouflaged in a mountain range somewhere watching yeti." So he doubted that Heath knew who this third year was. "But...that's him there. In the black jacket," Cooper continued, pointing towards the older Ravenclaw. That was...fake leather, right?

Oh hey! Morgan was here too! Cooper offered him a big wave as well. Another pretty person.

"But...they're over by the food..." The hosts, that is. "And I'm in a perpetual state of starvation so let's grab something while we are over there too? See what the Ravenclaw inspired treat is and I can unreasonably compare it to mum's baking."


*~*~*~*~*~*


Giggling as she returned Auggie's wave, Becky found herself smiling at seeing how well he was adjusting to being at Hogwarts and finding his footing. She related to him a fair bit, did he know? Down to the struggles with language barrier things. Thankfully, people at Hogwarts seemed much more kind about things than what she experienced abroad.

Oops. Sorry Sam, there went summer thoughts again but she was doing her best not to linger on those. "I'm a little peckish," she nodded while smiling up at him. "We can get something to eat and drink and then...dance? You can keep your eyes closed and I'll guide us if the lights are too much? Or...we can not...if you'd rather not." She was TRYING to be more forthcoming with her wants since he had encouraged her to do that. It was difficult though. She was accustomed to being meek and the wallflower in the background that was more concerned with facilitating for others and forgetting about herself. But...this was a good change, she had decided. Speaking up a bit more. Even if she was being painfully selective about it. "OH LEO IS HERE!" she squeaked as she waved entirely too enthusiastically at her older mentor. Her mentor who...she felt like she was letting down since...things just were not working anymore. "Oh Sam! I need to introduce you two!"

Speaking of introducing people, did Sam and Benji know each other yet? Because the boyfriend and one of her best guy friends (she couldn't say BEST because that belonged to her brother and he was touchy about that sort of thing) needed to know each other and get along! "Benji!" she greeted with another loud chip and wave, it was nice...being acknowledged and greeted with such compassion. "We need to set up a meeting with Professor Flamsteed soon to talk about our project!"

Why was she trying to shout this across the explosive room? She did not know but she got all bubbly thinking about their herbology project of personal interest.


*~*~*~*~*~*


He wasn't holding his breath, only he absolutely was holding his breath while he waited for Maia to respond...or not respond. He had a vision of her just looking at him like he was the absolute worst person in the world and then just walking away. Clearly this is why he was no good at Divination because none of that ended up happening. Eh, that subject was for Seers anyway.

He had just opened his mouth to say something when he heard Auggie call his name and then his attention diverted for a moment to offer the younger teammate on his squad a sort of lifted hand sans wave greeting. And while his attention was elsewhere, he noticed Aboli and Fiona and offered that duo a nod of the head and toothy smile in greeting and then turned back to Maia.
She COULD just hug him if she wanted to...though he would likely be hella confused about it at first considering how cold she had been behaving only to turn the heat up to max in the next blink of an eye. Which was also remarkably on brand. "Me too...but I get it, okay? I'm not mad just...remember that I'm not going anywhere." The promise he had made her that day was still as true now as it was then, even if it meant that they basically stopped talking and became spectators in each other's lives.

He was holding his breath again ... which absolutely was the sole reason for the surprised GASP that came out of him when Hero showed up OUT OF THE BLUE like he did just now. "Hero. Hey!" Saved by the bro? "No, haven't...but uh...Maia has. And I guess judging from all the crumbs that it's a good one?" This was totally normal conversation. Totally.

Now looking around anywhere BUT at Maia or Hero, Josh's eyes fell on Spencer and Picadilly and sweet MERLIN was this HARD. He really did deserve a medal for keeping his mouth shut. Considering he had literally just made up with Spencer just a few days ago and he and Picadilly clarified their miscommunications so they were cool now too...he really didn't want to mess all of that up again. Even if...it...was...so...hard...not...to...think...abo ut...THINGS. The irony that, unknowingly, he and his dormmate were both thinking about the aftermath of a certain party last term. He just...needed to chill. Find zen. Focus on himself and his own hot messes.

Ugh.

He gave the happy couple a bit of a grimaced smile and accompanied wave, but was quickly looking away there as well before his mouth starting moving. Oh hey, there was Macie! He offered her a smile and a wave too, minus the grimace. And then, just out of the corner of his eye, he notice Luz AND Lark had arrived and he felt a whoooooooooooooooole bunch of things at once. A whole bunch. None of them good feelings either. So his head snapped back around to Hero and Maia and he was going to do his darndest to just not acknowledge them or how he was feeling, though he did give his Hufflepuff bro a bit of a jab with the elbow to let him know what was up. Or at least that was the intent. He was soooooooo good at being subtle.

"I...may hit the dance floor," he decided, jabbing his thumb over his shoulder towards the one and only Kale Trent living large and disco-in-charge.

Default asdfjkl so many people! rearranged for flow but everybody is mentioned at least once
1/2 of Roston ~ Rhibear ~ Madam Solo ~ Pirate Princess ~ Gryffinclaw ~ Just a doll

Ariel shook her head at Heath. “Play a song for us, and then I’ll owe you cookies,” she said. She was joking, of course, but Heath knew that, right? Anyway, there was no time to explain now. Her guests were arriving, yay! She waved at the first person to arrive (Ashley). Aww, a firstie! Wasn’t she adorable? Another wave was sent at the new guy (Auggie), She was going to introduce herself, but she saw he was already talking to Heath. That earned a huge smile from the brunette lioness. Pro tip: the quickest way to get into her good graces was to be nice to her little brother.

A lot more people were trickling in now. Ariel was about to go and mingle, but somebody approached her first. “Oh hey, Leo,” she said, smiling at her housemate. “I know, right? I’m sure we all can use a bit of fun.”

She returned Hero’s smile with one of her own. “Hey yourself,” she said. “Nothing much, just, you know, hosting a party. What’s up with you?”

Then somebody else was calling her name… or, well, shouting it, but hey, it’s a party! “Hey, Jackson! Thanks!” she replied, laughing at what he said next. “Okay, we’ll have a party every week… if you help me plan them!” A girl could only come up with so many party ideas by herself!

As her blue eyes scanned the room, Ariel returned Josh’s eye contact. How was it that she’d never properly talked to him, despite them being in the same house? Time to fix that! “Hi,” she said, waving to him and Maia. “Thanks for coming!”

No sooner had she spoken that she noticed another pair (Cooper and Celyn). It was hard to hear over the music and balloons, but she thought she heard her name mentioned in there somewhere… and why was that boy pointing at her brother? “Hi! I’m Ariel,” she introduced herself, taking a few steps closer to them in an effort to block them from Heath’s view. Her voice dropped to a whisper as she said to Cooper, “Don’t let Heath catch you pointing at him; it’ll make him uncomfortable.” Sorry, kid! Just doing her duty as an overprotective big sister.

Ariel looked back at Heath, hoping he hadn’t seen, and why did he look like a lovesick dog? Then she saw Claudine. Oh, that was why. She still had her doubts about that one, but she wasn’t going to make a scene and ruin her own party. She would play nice for now. “Hi, Claudine,” she greeted. “Thanks for coming to my party.” Yeah, she was just gonna… leave those two alone for now.

As she turned away, she heard a younger boy’s (Morgan) loud voice. Okay, that was normal for a party; the weird thing was that he was calling Heath’s name. She practically BEAMED at him, appreciative of the effort to include her brother. “Oh, hey,” she greeted. “So I guess you know my brother?”

Ariel made her way around the room, greeting people as she went. She waved at one couple (Peggy and Spencer) as she passed but didn’t interrupt their conversation. Another pair (Becky and Sam) also got waves, but it was the girl’s dress that caught her attention. It was her favorite color! “Hey! I love your dress,” she said with a smile. Yeesh, was everybody here part of a couple except her? Even her little brother… Oh well, never mind. Back to hosting.

She returned Macie’s wave, smiling in her direction. Benji also got a wave, as did the younger lionesses (Phoebe and Cece) and the two Slytherin girls (Aboli and Fiona). “Hi! Thanks for coming,” she greeted. “Can I get you anything? Punch? Cookies?”

Speaking of cookies, Ariel overheard a younger girl (Amari) and that firstie she saw earlier (Ashley) talking about them. “Hi! I’m Ariel,” she introduced herself. “Enjoying the party?”

Finally, somebody (Kale) was dancing! Ariel took that as her cue to join him on the dance floor. “Hey! Nice shoes,” she said. “Did you decorate them yourself?” And if not, where did he get them because she had to have a pair! She was so busy dancing that she almost didn’t notice the two girls arriving one after the other (Luz and Lark). She waved at them both, calling across the room, “Hi! Welcome to the party!”



Heath inwardly groaned as Ariel once again mentioned him performing. Seriously, why was she still on about that? Before he could say anything back to her, people were arriving. He spotted Ashley and gave her a small wave. The thought crossed his mind to go talk to her, but she seemed busy talking to that other girl (Amari). They probably wouldn’t want him interrupting, not that it mattered anyway.

He couldn’t interrupt even if he wanted to, as someone else (Auggie) was already talking to him. Uhh… do I know you? He thought, blinking in confusion. And now he’s touching me… Well, this was weird! It took all of Heath’s concentration to hide his growing nervousness. “Hey,” he replied, returning the fistbump. He assumed this guy must be new because nobody who knew him called him Heathcliff… well, except for his grandma because she was allergic to nicknames or something. “Please call me Heath.” Was that rude? He felt like it might come across as rude. “I’m good, thanks. You?”

Heath’s dark eyes darted around the room. Oh dear Merlin, too many people! There was no way he could study all of them, and if he couldn’t study them, how was he supposed to know what to be around them? He was ready to slip out the door when he spotted a familiar face in the crowd, and his heart skipped. Claudine… All he could do was look at her for several moments, at a complete loss for words. “Hi,” he said when he finally found his voice. “You look… beautiful.” He’d almost said “nice”, but that seemed a huge understatement. “I’m so glad you came!” He wasn’t sure if she would - he knew that parties weren’t her thing - but it meant the world to him that she did.

For a moment, Heath forgot all about the crowd… until he heard somebody calling his name. His dark head whipped around, and he saw Morgan. “Oh! Hey,” he replied, waving at the other boy just in case he hadn’t heard him because there was no way he was yelling across the room! He also returned the wave from his younger housemate (Cooper). Wait, he was waving at him, right? Merlin, he hoped so! Otherwise, he’d just embarrassed himself.

Whoooah whoah the party was really popping now! Kale Trent had even shown up READY with his MOVES. Auggie was digging the amount of people and the amount of CHEERFULNESS going around! He waved at his fellow fourth year and smiled at PHOEBE who had just arrived! Now, where was Cait? Evie? He didn't quite make out what she might have been telling Cecelia because Sam had arrived, and Auggie was waving cheerfully at HIM too. Quidditch bros for LIFE, right?

"Heya Phoebe," he said as he drew nearer her and Cecelia. "Do either of you want a drink? I think I saw them...somewhere..." he glanced around. Heath wanted to be called Heath? All right all right. "I will try! But fair warning - I am bad at remembering nicknames! I will TRY to remember Heath, though, bruv!" he chuckled a little.

GOSH SO MANY PEOPLE. There was another guy waving at him (Benji) and Auggie just waved back, feeling stoked he was actually assimilating into the Hogwarts vibes, yeah! "Sup, Morgan," he fist bumped his friend and nodded. This was exciting. Having friends was exciting. Being a transfer with a funny accent with friends was EXCITING.

Attention back to Cecelia and Phoebe...he thought he word the word "Italian" from one of them...but he just smiled. "Yeah - LET'S DANCE!" He followed Cecelia's lead on that one. Phoebe and Morgan would join, yes???

Auggie FELT THE MUSIC. LET THE MUSIC TAKE HIM. His confidence would outshine whatever he lacked in dancing skill, riiiiiight? THAT'S WHAT HE TOLD HIMSELF ANYWAY. "Becky, you should come dance TOOOOO!" he called out to his fellow puffffffered friend!


***

Aboli just shot Fiona a look. She didn't want to go interrupt the awkwardness that was Josh and Maia? "I dunno...Maia seems like she needs saving as much as Josh does..." she smirked and nudged Fi a bit. Aaand her cheeks turned red when she was described as prefect EXTRAORDINAIRE. While it might have been true, Aboli didn't really want Fiona drawing attention to it....you know, even if she was STILL wearing her badge with her cute outfit. But the kiddos had to know that she was still a prefect and that this party would NOT get out of control if she had anything to say about it. Where were the other prefects? How annoying was it if she were the only one here...she alone had to make sure it didn't go to HECK? Fine.

But hi, Jackson. "Yeah...Aboli. Great job pronouncing. I'm impressed since most people are inept at saying it correct," she shrugged coolly, trying to be more elusive than she felt. Her eyes were searching around for a certain Gryffindor she didn't yet see, and then her heart PINCHED with guilt about it. She shouldn't be seeking Noah out like this. HEY in your defense, you broke up with Valencia...so...he's like your only BEST BEST friend... "Fiona, do you want to take Valencia's place as my best female friend? I need someone to listen to my problems," she said quickly, turning back to her. "And I miss female companionship." Yes, Jackson. Have fun listening to this conversation.

Trent JR had arrived and was dancing like a madman, and a bunch of the fourth years were now joining him. What an odd year they all were...so irritating. So weird. So bloody loud. Speaking of awkwardness for Josh, though, Luz AND Lark had just arrived, and Aboli shot them both nods of her head.

Ha. Poor Josh. Like everyone he had ever had an issue with had shown up to this shindig.

IF Josh was going to go dance, fine...she'd pressure FIONA into joining him because that is what friends DID when friends had crushes on OTHER friends, right? RIGHT?

Her prefect senses were tingling, though, and she saw two younger students being not in the crowd - sort of on the outskirts, and she nudged Fiona with a "I'll be back" sort of gesture before heading right toward Amari and the firstie, Ashley. "Amari..hey..." She told her fellow snake. "Ashley...nice to see you again...I think you might be the only first year here," she smiled at her. "You're brave! I would never have come to something like this as a first year. Kuddos to you, my friend," she gave the girl a thumbs up. "Amari...a lot of those guys on the dance floor are fourth years like you if you wanted to join them," she nodded.

Ashley blinked. there were more people talking to her now? Apparently that's what happens when you're the youngest person there. She nodded at Heath. Then she turned to Ariel. "Hi. Cool party. I like the cookies. There are so many people here. I'm Ashley by the way, and I'm a first-year ravenclaw." Then she looked at Aboli. "Hi Aboli." She liked the slytherin prefect. She was very nice. "Eh I'm not that brave. It's a party and there's food. How could I not come?" She was also pretty extroverted and had no problem with making friends in different years. Seriously though, these slytherin cookies were epic. Whoever made these was awesome. Ashley made a mental note to get someone to make mint chocolate cookies when she was back in Australia.

Caitlyn Hale wasn't the one to party, as a matter or fact she was more of a loner and stayed to herself. But she was bored out of her mind so why not? Seeing how it was a party she dressed up in a nice black dress with black flats and her curly hair up. Biting her lip she walked in and headed towards the punch and cookies taking a few. Seeing Auggie with a couple of friends she decided to leave him be, he seem to be having fun with them.

Going to a table she sat down taking a red cookie she took a bite of it. Mmm...not bad." she thought to herself tapping her foot to the music. Anyone that knew Cait knew that she was in Gymnastics and danced, she was very good at it. Although her shyness was kicking in, and she knew no one here but Auggie.

------
Stella Starson wasn't no stranger to parties, she had her fair share of parties and welcome back ones. In a sparkly black dress and heels she walked in and smiled. "Wow...looks awesome in here!"Definitely a good way to kick off her final year, she was starting to like this year. She wasn't going to lie, she was going to miss these parties, but was sure she'll have tons of parties at her university.

Looking around for her friends and Oceanus her boyfriend she sighed not seeing them or them. Although she wasn't worried though, she knew that they'll be here. Looking around she headed to the punch to get some.

Charlie tugged her bright pink crop top into place, glancing down at her muggle overalls that she had really grown to love over the summer--her mom swore up and down she wore them as a kid, Charlie didn't like that idea at all. Everything looked to be in order, her overalls were loose but not too loose, the crop top showed enough skin that it wasn't her mom's overalls look, and her white ked wedges made the look completely. She tugged on a curl glancing at the door. She should just go on in, how many people could already be in there?

Pushing through the door she was greeted with music. She glanced from the far left of the room to the right of the room and back. She noticed the host (Ariel) she had seen around the school, but hadn't gotten the pleasure of knowing yet. She should really fix that situation, maybe she should go over and introduce herself, let the older girl know she really liked the party. But she got side tracked when she noticed the cute boy from the summer (Cooper) with a few other girls. She gave him a small wave moving further into the room.

Kale Trent arrived in style and Charlie was absolutely 100% here for it. Gliding by him she smiled and shook her shoulders, "Love the look Kale." She was pretty sure that eventually the would be BFFs but she just needed to get him absolutely on board so they could have all the fun and drive his poor father mad. She wondered just how much he could take before punishing them. Doing a turn around the room she tried to decide if she was going to keep dancing on the dance floor or go find at least one person socializing to the side to avoid being the awkward girl.

Chuckling in response to Ariel’s laugh, Jackson found himself smiling at how successful the party was turning out to be. ”Okay, cool! I can totally help with that.” Planning a party every week? No problem! Jack(son) Bole was pretty good with ideas and planning… It was the execution that never got enough follow through… Uh. Not to mention the fact that he needed to do well on his exams this year and all the added stressors the term had already thrown his way.

Ha ha ha.

It was fine. Everything was fine. He could definitely take on one more thing. Totally.

Not that he was thinking about all of that right now. Right now he was trying to enjoy this party. And make some new friends seeing as the majority of his were… gone. (Just to clarify, they aren’t DEAD, they just weren’t at Hogwarts anymore for various reasons).

Ha. Anyway.

New friends. Right. That’s what he was doing. Jackson returned Fiona’s half-smile with a full one of his own, reaching for his hair and messing it about. ”Prefect extraordinaire?” He chuckled, looking over to the girl (Aboli) in mention. ”You won’t have to worry about me, I’m not looking for any trouble.” This was a joke. But it also wasn’t a joke. But… also, he sort of was looking for trouble now, it was a whole thing(TM), but more on that later. ”Hypothetically though, if one were to be looking for trouble… What do you two reckon would be the best way to go about landing a detention?” Hypothetically. He laughed a bit in reply to her… praise? Because he wasn’t entirely sure how he was meant to respond to that.

And as for dressing up, Jackson agreed. He liked the opportunity too, even if he did prefer wearing pastel shorts and sandals. ”Me too.” He agreed. ”You look real nice by the way… Both of you.”

Though he was starting to feel like maybe he had intruded on their moment as talk turned to the subject of female companionship… Did he….. Need to leave them to it? He wasn’t entirely sure if that would be polite… So uh, he simply averted his gaze and looked around the room, his eyes once again falling upon Leo. Maybe he ought to make his way over there now. Orrrrrrrrrrr maybe he could do that later. Later, yeah.

Had Luz been standing there the whole time? He gave her a small smile and a half-wave, wondering if he ought to go join her instead.


______________


”Really!?” Picadilly brightened even more, her eyes filled with delight. ”I’ve never thrown a party, do you think people would come?” On her own, she wasn’t sure it was a feat she was capable to pull off, but with Spencer’s help and expertise! He threw the BEST parties (something she could confidently ay after having attended one party in her life that happened to be thrown by him). It was a good party though. She enjoyed it.

Spencer’s twitch went unnoticed by Picadilly, who was still waving at Macie and then Maia and then Joshua. So many of her friends were here! ”Oh! Okay,” she nodded eagerly. A drink sounded nice. She wasn't yet thirsty, but it would probably help settle some of the nerves, having something to hold. As for the hats, ”I’ll try one on! We can see if it’ll fit over all my hair.”

It was difficult for Peggy to keep her mind on just one thing when there was so much going on around her. Her eyes kept bouncing around from one side of the room to the other, until she noticed Luz by the doorway.

!!!!!

Her hand twitched by her side and in a sudden move to lift it to wave at her housemate, Peggy managed to WHACK Spencer in the side instead.

Gasp!

”Sorry,” she sheepishly apologized, sincerely hoping that Luz hadn’t seen.

Kale Trent was in a boogie wonderland. He was happiest when he was groovin' and shakin', so when the peeps started to jiiiiiive over to him, he only got haPPIER. Dancin' was better with buds.

He shimmied enthusiastically at Cece when she joined the dance floor. She got a wink, too, for her bouncing. Gotta love that Gryffindor enthusiasm! And he gave two hearty thumbs up to Josh.

There was someone new to him on the dancefloor when he spun around on his toes, all ballerina-like, and Kale flashed a smile. He liked making new friends. Especially the party-thrower, if his hearing was correct. He peaked down at his shoes that were TEARING UP THE DANCEFLOOR and agreed, "They are nice. And yah. I totally did." He was finding glitter on his hands for days after.

Just as he did another spin, he caught sight of Auggie. 'Sup, bro??

He did a jump and landed in a split when another person complimented his look. Gosh. His feathers must really be POPPIN' tonight. Excellent. "Thanks, Charlie, he said, as he stumbled up from his split. "You look nice, too."

The room was filling up with people she knew, which made Phoebe finally feel like her skin wasn't about to leave her body behind. Morgan showed up, shoving cookies in his face, and Kale was throwing himself around on the dance floor like a maniac, and Cooper had a GIRL he was showing around (HOW THE HECK DID THAT HAPPEN ALREADY), and there were so many cookies. And snacks. And the lights. It was all SO MUCH.

Phoebe wanted to hold onto Cece forever, especially when Auggie approached them. "I think," she leaned in to whisper to her friend. "I think you can kiss hands if you want to kiss hands." And Cece was gone to dance with Kale, and in spite of being a strong, independent woman, Phoebe felt her stomach rising in her throat. And somehow sinking into her knees too. Strange old stomach. It was fine. She was fine.

"I'll dance with you, Auggie," Phoebe followed the Hufflepuff (and Cece) onto the dance floor and gyrated more sedately than her more enthusiastic friends.

"Oh yeah, totally," Leo said with a nod. Ariel wasn't wrong, and fun was always welcome. It was just a shame that whenever something mega fun did start to happen, someone came along and shut it down. Usually a professor, but Leo hadn't seen any of those. A few prefects, though, maybe. Hopefully not the killjoy type. At any rate, Hogwarts was better in that regard than his other schools.

But speaking of prefects, had Lucas made it here yet? Leo had tried his best to convince him to come without going too peer pressure-y, so it would be the least he could do to talk to him a bit if he did turn up. But as Leo scanned the guests, he got a little sidetracked from his search. He turned back to Ariel. "Anyway, I'll let you mingle. Don't do anything I wouldn't do!"

And he ducked away and headed for Becky and those with her, only slightly impeded along the way. "Coming through..."


__________


Was Josh okay? Backed up again? Too much apple pie?

"Huh?" Peggy was talking to him, and Spencer, already miles away, had to manoeuvre himself back to Earth. "Oh! Yeah, for defs. No doubt." He didn't see why not, at least. Even if people didn't like Peggy - and he failed to see why they wouldn't, she was aces - a party was a party and who the heck didn't like letting loose every now and then? Or all the time ever.

Anyway drinks, yes. "Be right back," Spencer said, with a grin and a wink, and stepped briefly away to the refreshments table...

... returning moments later with two cups of punch and a variety of cookies, as many as he could tuck into his hands while still holding the drinks.

Also, a party hat for Peggy in his teeth. But before he could announce his return, she nailed him in the side and took him totally by surprise. "Ahh!" Spencer managed to keep the hat in his teeth and the cookies in his hands, but lost about a third of each drink when the he gave a half-jolt-half-cringe and the colour-changing punch spilled over and onto his hands. And sort of the cookies too. "Ah, i's o'ay - I 'ot 'ou a 'at." The hat. For her.

Well, this was turning into a party! Which was fitting... because... it was a party.

But he was starting to realise he knew more and more people who were here, was his point. Or maybe it was just that people he knew kept arriving. Like Luz! Yeah, old friends. Or... new friends, old... frenemies? Or something. She never liked him and then she did.

Of course she did, he was ace.

SPOILER!!: relevant eliza info

Name: Eliza Parkinson
Date of birth: 30th October 2084
Pronouns: She/her
House: Gryffindor
Year: Seventh

School history:
Hogwarts (Gryffindor), September of first year to present


Honestly? Eliza had had no intention of coming here tonight; it wasn't really her kind of party, and so she was planning to make the most of a quiet common room for once. You took what you could get in Gryffindor.

In the end, though, she'd made the last minute decision to rock up. After all, Josh had asked her to come, and who could say no to that puppy face of his?

Eliza could, actually. That wasn't actually why she'd changed her mind. The common room had been a little too quiet, most of her friends had decided to come to this thing, and it might be fun to surprise a certain Seeker.

The Room was already pretty crowded, but Eliza still slipped behind Spence and his girl so he wouldn't divert her his way, and searched the room for a bit. Aha, there he was, with one of his friends from his year, and Maia. "Oi, Miller," Eliza greeted Josh in that delightful way of hers, stepping up from behind to join him, so casually. "So what'd I miss?" No drama, hopefully, but then she'd only been a few minutes later than she might usually have been, and if something had already happened in that time then she'd be too impressed to be mad about it. Maybe. Probably not. But the sentiment was there.

Very self conscious.

That was exactly how Claudine was feeling at the moment. It did help when she spotted Aboli, whom she considered a friend, waving to her. She waved back with a smile. That was one girl who would fit right in. Speaking of fitting in… it sure seemed like Auggie had done so already. “How’s it going, Auggie?” Was it okay if she gagged at the boy’s antics over Cecelia?

Fear not! Any gagging and potential throwing up was nothing going to happen on the account of one Morgan. Claudine turned to him in relief. “Hey, Morgan. Are you here for the food or for the dancing?’’ Random, you know. She could be random at times because it was difficult for her to pick a proper conversation. Maybe he could join Kale over there if dancing was his thing? Claudine tried not to stare; that Gryffindor sure had some moves.

Maybe it was Claudine’s imagination but she got this…vibe from Ariel. A vibe that suggested that Ariel was weary of Claudine. The fourth year suspected why the vibe was possible but never spoke of it, not even to Heath. “Hello, Ariel. You’re welcome.” Um… should she mention that she was only here because Heath asked her to come? Never mind. Ariel seemed to be busy elsewhere now. Claudine turned her gaze to Heath instead and was quite perplexed to find her looking at her so… weirdly. Also, why wasn’t he saying anything? She tilted her head at him questioningly. Was he okay? She knew that crowds weren’t his thing either. Maybe everyone’s presence had overwhelmed him. “Hi,’’ the girl said at the exact time he greeted her, so that their voices clashed. That made her chuckle lightly. But the compliment? It took her by surprise and caused a dull flush to creep up on her cheeks. “Oh. Um, thank you.’’ Yes, Claudine was super awkward when it came to receiving compliments. “Only because you asked me to,’’ was her honest response. Now that their conversation’s topic had changed, she asked with a broad smile, “Are you going to join the others out on the dance floor?”

Sam did NOT want to dance, actually, and he didn't want to let Becky lead while he closed his eyes against the annoying lights. He might be convinced to stuff cookies into his face, if Becky came with him...

But Josh was dancing. And Auggie was dancing. And Becky had legit asked him to dance, and Sam had just told her a few weeks back that she shouldn't freak out about being too demanding and needy. UGH FINE GOSH. FINE. Worst party ever.

"Let's dance. I'm not doing that like... booty shaking, leg kicking, nonsense. If that's what you want to do, you do it, and I'll watch. I do two moves." Sam allowed himself to be pulled on the dance floor, and he demonstrated his two moves. A bit of a sway, and then... CLAP. Not on the beat. Not where clap went. But that was it. The second move.

Celyn watched Cooper curiously as he took several pictures of the party and party-goers. It looked like such an interesting hobby. She found herself wondering if he was good at it too, but no, she was sure she didn't have to wonder. She had a feeling he was very good at it. She'd have to ask to see his photographs one day.

"I'd never heard a howler like that one before," she admitted once he mentioned it. "Usually they're mean and yell-y." But this one had been nice. Funny. "Oh that sounds like a wonderful idea! I bet he would like one. I wonder if my dad would like one too. Maybe not quite as loud though." She wondered if there were variations of the howler, including volume control.

She followed his eyeline to a couple girls (Cecelia and Phoebe), then offered them a friendly smile and wave as well when Cooper told her who they were. "That's such a lovely thing to say." About his cousin and super good friend, of course, and she turned back to him with a soft smile. "I'm eager to meet them. They sound wonderful." But perhaps later since they seemed to be heading for the dance floor.

"It's really no problem," she assured Cooper about sharing her books as she kept close to him while they walked through the room. "I like doing homework with a friend. It's more fun that way." And maybe she got a little distracted that way, but it was a preferred method. Celyn nodded as Cooper spoke and pointed out Heath, her eyes finding the mentioned boy in the crowd. She was beginning to feel slightly overwhelmed with all the new people and the growing crowd really beginning to fill out the place. But one word did stick out to her and she turned to him again, her eyes lit up with curiosity and interest.

"Have you really seen a yeti out in the wild? You'll have to tell me all about that sometime." That was fascinating. But later. Parties were hardly conducive to in-depth conversations. She allowed him to guide her towards the refreshments. "I hope they have pumpkin pasties," she mentioned casually with a secret sort of smile, hoping he'd remember the reference.

But before they could see if there actually were any pumpkin pasties, they were being approached... by the hostess. What a coincidence! "Hello!" Celyn smiled brightly as Ariel introduced herself. "I'm Celyn and this is my friend, Cooper. We're both new transfers this year." But her smile soon faded and she hurriedly shook her head. "Oh! We weren't being mean," she assured Ariel as her voice dropped to mirror the older girl's. "We were just trying to figure out who our hosts were so we could say hello and thank you." Since they were both new and all... and they wanted to be mannerly. But she'd feel terrible if she'd inadvertently made anyone feel bad.


~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~


Hero had thought he was doing Joshua a favor, being bros and all. He was cool like that, and he gave Maia a nod. "So which kind of cookie did you like best then?" But this was... super awkward already and he supposed his presence hadn't done what he had intended. Especially with Josh trying to look at literally anyone but him (or Maia). Wow. Okay then, mate.

While Joshua was apparently looking around to talk to someone better, Hero grabbed a blueberry cheesecake cookie. Maybe he should look around for someone else to talk to as well. And then that Eliza girl appeared. Hero didn't know her well, but he was at least familiar with her, being in the same year as him and he'd heard things. But maybe she was who Joshua was looking to talk to.

"I'm sure that Joshua can fill you in on all the drama," Hero told her before he clapped his cookie-less hand on Joshua's shoulder. "Clearly three's a crowd," he added, a tad annoyed that his gesture wasn't at all well received. "So I'll catch you around. Have fun."

As soon as he stepped away, he spotted Luz in his peripheral vision. That wound had not healed yet and he did not care for it to be freshly opened just now, so... he veered slightly away. But not before giving her an acknowledging nod. He wasn't a total jerk.

Shoving the rest of the cookie in his mouth, he came across Ariel again. Hero hadn't gotten a chance to say much beyond the initial greeting, and maybe she was done greeting all her guests. "Hey, Ariel," he said once he finished the rest of that cookie, and he offered a hand. "You want to dance?"


~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~


"Huh?" Morgan turned towards the older Gryffindor girl. Oh, this was Heath's sister? "Yeah, sure... he's in some of my classes. We're friends." Weren't they? Morgan considered himself friends with most people, so... yeah.

"Uhh... both?" was his answer to Claudine's question. "Yeah, both," he grinned. "Why limit yourself to one thing?" Food first, then dancing, and then... who knows? He was here to have fun.

Aww yeah! There was Kale! Morgan knew he'd make it to the party. And look at those moves! "Come on friends!" he implored those of his buddies (pretty much any fourth year) that were still hanging out by the cookies. "Let's go dance!"

Following the beat of the music, he hopped over towards the dance floor following his friends already on their way, giving Cooper a wave in return. He knew that guy! And that guy over there too! "Hey, Leo! Alles gut?" he greeted the older boy as he quickly passed.

Time to dance!!

Not going anywhere.

Maia watched her best friend ( they were still best friends, right? or not? she wasn’t sure anymore ) for a long moment or two, deciding to simply not respond. She knew he meant to keep that promise. How she wished things could go back to the way they were before.. they.. she decided to complicate everything. And even though she found it terribly convenient to put the blame on him, it was entirely her fault. She didn’t particularly feel like continuing this conversation with him here anyway, at a party. It was weird. This was weird. She tucked her hair behind her ears, feeling terribly awkward. Now, what? She looked around a bit, her gaze immediately settling upon Spencer and Picadilly, a small smile returning to her face. They looked so ridiculously cute together. She should make it a point to tell Picadilly later. The smile on her face widened a little bit when the host came over. It was funny how they’d never really interacted before. “No problem, Ariel. This is a great party.”

She turned to greet Hero who joined them a moment later, casually wondering if he knew all the things. “Hello.” He was pretty close to Joshua, wasn’t he? Or not. She had no idea.. because she didn’t know what was happening in his life now. Cool, cool, cool, cooool. She cleared her throat, feeling even more awkward now.. and she could tell that hero was too. Wow, just..wow. “Mint chocolate chip is pretty great. You should try it.” Maia responded finally when Eliza appeared.

“Hey.” She greeted the older girl with a half smile, turning to look away again, noticing her dormmates ( Fiona and Aboli ), Fiona looking super pretty as per usual, before her gaze shifted towards Jackson. Phew. She felt really glad to see him, somehow. Oh... OH. Luz was here. Maia still didn’t like that girl for hurting Joshua the way she did. Ugh. Bad memories immediately resurfaced so she turned back towards her current company, suddenly feeling like coming here was a terrible mistake. Being around Joshua.. it was too much and she didn’t want to deal with this now. Maybe she should just leave.

Charlie smiled at Kale “Aw thanks, Kale. Means a lot coming from you.” And it really did. Kale was super fashionable. A bit bolder than her but for sure fashionable. Her eyes tracked across the room as she went to grab a drink. She was thirst from giving a little shake here and there across the floor. Glancing over she waved at Cooper and then she glanced over and saw Morgan trying to convince all his friends to dance. She glanced over where she found drinks to be and decided that could wait. With a shimmy and a shake she moved onto the dance floor.

And there were more persons getting in on the dance. Claudine saw this as a great thing. Why? Because there would be a lot more room for her to be a fly on the wall. Another thing? There was definitely going to be a smaller crowd at the food table, at least for now.

Claudine tore her gaze away from the dancefloor to the boy before her once more. “Odd,” she mused to herself, “how persons who are family can be so different.” Yes, she knew they were distantly related so Claudine supposed that may be a reason why she and Morgan had such different traits. But related they still were.

The Snakette grinned now. “I’d rather limit myself to the food. More for me, I think.’’ Especially cookies. “So, Morgan. Going to bust out some moves now and show me what you got?’’

Picadilly wasn’t as certain as Spencer was, but even if he were to be the only one to show up to a party she threw, that would be enough. Peggy was used to being a party of one anyway. And! Two was so much better than one, except for when it came to exams, in which case none was better than two.

Maybe she’d have a piñata.

She tried to focus all her thoughts on potential piñata fillings and tried to look as casual as possible in case Luz looked over. Maybe she’d even come to say hi though... Peggy wasn’t sure whether that would be best case or worst case scenario.

Especially seeing as she had sort of been the cause of whacking Spencer. Whoops.

”Sorry, I don’t know why I did that,” she continued to apologize profusely even though she was sure Spencer said it was alright. Speaking of which! Maybe she should help with all the things he was carrying! It looked like a lot.

Giving him a sheepish smile, she reached for the hat he was holding with his teeth. ”Thanks!” Spencer was much better at being a boyfriend than she was at being a girlfriend. In an attempt to situate the hat on top of all the curls, she looked up at Spencer yet again. "Did it spill on you?" The punch? "Should I find something to clean it up?" A cloth???
