Default Arcade Area


As you continue along the second-floor corridor, you will eventually stumble upon a bust of a medieval wizard who is quietly muttering to himself in Latin. But it is the antechamber near this statue that draws in a lot of students because over the years this spot has been designated as a popular hang-out area. More often than not, those who need a break from schoolwork come here to play an array of indoor wizarding games.

Scattered around this small room are chess boards, decks of Exploding Snap cards, areas for playing Gobstones, and other wizarding games ranging from Snitch Snatcher to Wizard Cracker Pop-It to Wizard Skittles. If none of these games interest you, there is a small table where Runok Ko and Rune Riddle books can be found. Otherwise, you can go check out the suit of armour that stands off to the side -- maybe you will figure out that it is guarding a passage to a secret storeroom -- or, if you feel there's more of the castle for you to explore, take the stairway that leads up to the third floor.

There was never a short fall of fun going on at Hogwarts, although Remy did fancy a few extra clubs after classes other than just drama club. Disclaimer: drama club was COOL, and full of drama, ironically, but she quite liked the idea of more sports teams. Always seeking fun, Remy found herself in the arcade area, somewhere she hadn’t really gone before due to it often being crowded.

Didn’t matter now - she was a second year. If there were any younger kids hogging an area, she’d tell them to move. Emmerson would be SO proud about that. Weird thought to be seeking HER approval, though.

With her hair tied up in a messy top knot, Remy Gaeltheos stood with her hand on her chin, thinking about what she wanted to play. Most of the games needed a player two, so she looked out for potentials there as well.

Ash wanted to have fun today. Surprise...

She was headed towards the arcade area again, and this time it wasn’t because she was worried about the future of the school. It was because she wanted to play a game. Games. She didn’t play games very often, because why would she? First year, too stressed. Second year... being monitored by a cult was not a good time to play games. Third year? She was too miserable and angry to have any sort of fun. Which was sad. But now it was fourth year. Everything was okay. She could relax for a bit. Which was WHY she was here.

As she entered the arcade area, she spotted Remy. Standing with her back turned. So she crept up behind her, careful to make no noise. Was Ash going to feel bad about this? Probably. She whispered in Remy’s ear. Ooh. I’m a ghost. Sorry, Remy. At least wasn’t going to laugh if the other girl got scared. She just wanted to make a point.

Remy had quickly decided that she wanted to play to Exploding Snap, but again, it needed a partner, and there was no one here that she had met properly before. Strangely she felt too awkward to ask anyone, even though they were all likely here for the same reason. Her hands dropped to her side and she sighed heavily, choosing to go somewhere else instead.

Before doing so, she felt a sudden presence nearby and a whispering in her ear that sent a shiver down her spine. Thinking it was a REAL ghost, Remy shrieked and leaped about 3 inches away from said being. “Ahhhh!!” Upon seeing Ash, Remy regulated her breath and frowned hard, suddenly remembering their very first encounter where Remy had done exactly this.

That probably explained why Ash did such a thing, and she couldn’t get mad about that really. “Very funny.” She commented through gritted teeth, but finished to with a smile, because again… she deserved it.

Ash stepped back and raised an eyebrow. Her trick had the intended effect, and she thankfully avoided an elbow to the nose. She smiled a bit. “Don’t mind me, Remy. I’m just putting the universe back in balance.” She allowed her smile to turn into a grin as she took a seat nearby. “I’m sure it was funny, but I’m feeling kind so I won’t laugh. You know I was considering disillusioning myself, but that seemed a bit cruel.” And in hindsight, that was the right idea. The girl Remy was seeing was Ash 2.0, who apparently had self-control. She relaxed in her chair. “What are you doing here?”

Ash’s comment and lack of guilt confirmed that it probably was a revenge thing after all. She was waiting for an apology but it did not seem like that was coming. HMPTHHH… okay. “Well, at least I don’t have to feel bad about when we first met anymore.” Remy smoothed her hair down as if it had been ruffled. In fact it had been quite messy the whole time.

Eventually Remy just shrugged it off coolly. “You can laugh if you want.” She didn’t CARE. “Besides it’s a natural reaction to jump like that because, you know…” Of course Ash knew. “Never know what dangers lie here.” One minute you were enjoying your school year and the next you find out your bread has been POISONED.

I’m just about to play Exploding Snap. Wanna play?”

Was Remy expecting an apology? Ash didn’t see any reason to apologize for putting the universe back in balance, but she would certainly say sorry if it would prevent a fight. Pick and choose your battles. She was supposed to be learning that. She wasn’t very good at it, but this possible battle would almost mean nothing. Almost.

She shrugged. Everything seemed fine. “I wouldn’t want you to feel bad regardless of whether or not I succeeded in scaring you. In all honesty, I just saw an opportunity and took it.” If that was the wrong thing to do, Now was the time for Remy to speak up.

“Relax. I’m not gonna laugh. I was just making a point about sneaking up on people.” And she seemed to have succeeded somewhat, judging by Remy’s sudden defensiveness. “If it makes you feel better, I was kinda relying on you being a little on edge. This is Hogwarts. It would be foolish if you weren’t even a little scared.” True. Ash was pretending to be a ghost, but there were always REAL evil ghosts out there. Those weren’t something to mess with.

“Sure I’ll play exploding snap. How do you play?” She smirked. Did it involve EXPLOSIONS? Ash was trying to be more mature this year, but that didn’t mean she couldn’t have fun. Not at all.

Finally Remy let her aggravation slide, because in all fairness to Ash, she had gotten her good. Her ego was just tooooooo big sometimes. “You’d think I’d be used to ghosts by now!” Being at Hogwarts and all, they were everywhere. Remy was pretty creeped out by them, though. She was often creeped out by many things, although mostly muggle things. Candy that could burn your tongue - who knew they were that advanced!!

Are you enjoying being back?” Remy asked courteously, noticing that Ash seemed in much brighter spirits than she was last term. The Gryffindor certainly was enjoying herself so far. She felt much more at home and a sense of belonging since retiring her firstie status.

You’ve never played Exploding Snap before?!” Honestly Remy didn’t play it much either, she mostly just enjoyed the explosions. “You have to match cards…” simple enough. “Quickly, though, because eventually they explode.” At least that was the way that she played it anyway.

Remy walked over to retrieve a pack of cards.

Ash disillusioned herself and switched chairs so that it looked like she teleported. Then she reappeared. Had she learned that spell just so that she could do that? Nooooo, of course not. Maybe. Yes. Possibly. “Yeah, there are lots of ghosts around here. In my first year, I got possessed by one! It was crazy.” And then there was the arson part, which she was not going to mention. They were playing EXPLODING Snap... she didn’t want Remy to decide that she couldn’t play with her.

“Hm? Oh, being back is alright. This has been the best year for me so far.” Which was good, because the bar was LOW. “I’m... feeling a lot better than I did last year.” She wasn’t doing amazing, but what mattered was that she was getting better and not worse. “You?”

Ash eagerly leaned forward. She was excited for the explosions! And... she was also excited that someone... anyone... wanted to play a game with her. She very rarely got the chance. “I usually play muggle games, since muggles are usually the only ones who like to play games with me.” Anyway... “Sounds like something I’d be good at. Let’s play!”

Remy’s eyes widened and she wanted a story time. Ash seemed like she was in a good enough mood to talk about it, right? Especially if she had tips on how to not be possessed by ghosts, because Remy was ready to take some notes. “What? You were possessed by one???!” EXPLAIN.

That’s good to hear.” And if Ash wanted to know, it was clear already that she seemed in better spirits this term. “I’m enjoying this term, too.” Like Ash, much more than last term. It felt more like home this time around. “Falling behind on my homework, though.” She sighed heavily.

Really? You should teach me some muggle games afterwards, maybe.” More and more, Remy was becoming interested muggle culture. Especially after finding out about their crazy sour candy. The Gryffindor shuffled the pack of cards and placed two piles face down on the table. “So… I’ll turn over a card on this pile.” She did so as she explained, “then we’ll take it in turns to turn a card over on the other pile, but we have to do it quick.” To avoid explosions, of course. “First to say SNAP wins that round.”

Got it? Ready?

Ash shrugged. "Yeah, but then Fake Trent got rid of it." True. "It wasn't a big deal." False. It was a big deal. Remy probably wouldn't have heard of it, but arson was not like... a small thing. Neither was losing 200 points. But that just... wasn't her. And it wasn't Trent either. It was just like, a ghost pretending to be her and an evil guy pretending to be a mean guy. It was weird. Yeah. Weird was a good word.

"I can help you with your homework if you want. Or your study habits." Ash was not a procrastinator. She remembered everything all the time, and she hated doing nothing. Honestly, the biggest problem that came up when she did her homework was that she got distracted easily. Because of the memory thing. That ended up being both a blessing and a curse. "I agree, this is the first time Hogwarts has felt like home, but it's also the first time I've felt homesick." She laughed. That was a good sign, right? She was feeling at home in both worlds.

Ash laughed again. "Oh, I like matching games. The explosions are a nice touch." Exploding Snap would require fast reflexes... for several reasons. And Ash was good at that. "Let's play!"
