Default What in Merlin's Beard?! Term 33 (2079-80)


A bit confused about the plot? Housemates talking about a mysterious something going bump in the night? Here's where you can catch up on happenings around the castle and in Hogsmeade -- out of character, of course.

This means that unless your student character heard this stuff from other students or witnessed the actual event, your student character doesn't know about it.

Also, this is a reminder to everyone to only post updates on the school plot here. Please do not post the happenings of your student character in here; that kind of chat goes in the school chat thread.

Have fun!

Our Headmistress has made her speech, which means that Term 33 is now officially underway!

Anyway, it was about time she gave her speech. Anastasia glanced at her wrist, realized she had forgotten to put on a watch, and then stood. She waited for complete silence to fall in the hall and magnified her voice, then began the term with the traditional speech.

"Good evening, everyone. Welcome back to another school year, and for those of you who are new to Hogwarts," first years and candidates alike, "welcome. We hope you'll enjoy your stay." She flashed a smile toward the Board table specifically and then continued.

"This year, you'll notice that we have a fifth table joining us. Trust me when I say that will not become a tradition. It is a... temporary honor for us to host the Hogwarts Board of Governors and Board of Governors candidates. Elections are this spring, students, so be prepared for a wave of political fever to sweep the school. Just don't let it distract from your studies."

The redhead smiled again, briefly, and remembered what the Muggle Studies professor had asked her to announce. "On that note, Professor Cerulean," she gestured toward where the woman was seated, "will be forming a debate committee to help plan the first organized... challenge our candidates will face. If you're interested in helping with the planning or decorating, please see the notice on your common room boards and speak to Professor Cerulean in your spare time. If you have questions you would like to ask of the board, or questions you would like to be considered for the debate, please fill out a slip of parchment and submit it to the box outside my office on the second floor.

"Now, a few notices before we eat." Anastasia cleared her throat. "You will all recall the illustrious events from last term... and the resulting tragedy of two of our staff..." she put a hand over her heart, "may they rest in peace. The search was difficult to find suitable replacements for Professors Christiansen and Burbage, but please welcome our new Ancient Runes and Astronomy teachers, Professor Botros and Professor Flamsteed, to Hogwarts. We also had several resignations last term," nothing she could be blamed for, obviously, "and have filled those positions as well. Mrs. James is our new Quidditch Official and Flying Instructor, and Mr. Firth is now our groundskeeper. Please respect them as you would respect their predecessors."

Merlin, she was going to need more than just a glass of water once this speech was over. "Finally, our last congratulations go out to Hogwarts' new Deputy Headmaster, Professor Scabior. Thank you, everyone, that is all. Please enjoy the feast and the rest of your evening. Classes will begin tomorrow."

With that, the redhead resumed her seat and all the delicious food the House Elves had prepared finally appeared on the tables. Time to dine at last!
Wonder what this term will bring besides the election?

Have you a question? A query for the Board of Governors candidates? Something you've been dying to ask about Hogwarts but haven't known whom to approach?

Come hither and post your q, child. We'll be waiting.

Although the blonde man was disillusioned, he had taken the extra precautions of dressing completely in black and also wearing gloves. He turned the knob of the door and slipped in unnoticed. It was almost too easy, at first. The old man had even forgotten to lock his door...but then, he was as ancient as Thor's hammer.

Erik closed the door behind him and moved over to the desk. He started opening drawers, shifting through papers, looking...just looking...but not finding what what he was looking for. There were too many parchments and pocket hankies here to make sense of it all, and nothing at all gave any clues as to the office's previous occupants. He let out a frustrated grunt and moved over to the side coffee table, near where a beautiful glass box was hovering.

Oh. This. This he had to have. He was entranced by the both the power of the box and the magic of the spell holding it up. Erik removed his wand from the interior pocket of his jacket and started working on a counter-spell to safely remove the box. It took some work and a few beads of sweat appeared on his brow, but he figured it out at last. The mysterious man used his wand to draw some symbols in a semi-circle around the box's stool, and then muttered and tapped out a complicated runic pattern over the symbols.

The box released from its hold with a soft sound like the opening of an air lock. He noted the presence of two tiny vials in the box and removed them from it, tucking them back into his pocket. He started for the door.

Just before he turned the knob again to leave, Erik turned around and pointed his wand at the box, murmuring a protective spell and charm around it so it would float again. Now it was enchanted to become something of a wizard's bomb; whenever the next person entered Botros' office, the glass box would explode into thousands of sharp, glassy pieces projectiles sure to make an impression on whomever they hit. He smirked at the thought and finally left, just as silently and unobtrusively as he had entered.

Dear people of Hogwarts who may or may not want to step foot into Botros's Office,

Watch out.

It appears as though Professor Botros wasn't the only victim of Hogwarts' own 007spy invasion.

Nope.

Professor Flamsteed's and Professor Bentley's offices were also... perused by the handsome and shifty blonde BoG candidate.

Still, to err on the side of caution, he was disillusioned, dressed all in black, and wearing gloves.

Once he saw the children exit and the Astronomy professor follow them, Erik left his light perch on the leather sofa. He unlocked the door with a little expert wandwork and moved inside, taking care not to mess up the impeccably clean room before he even started looking for anything.

By Odin's beard, was this man highly allergic to life? Erik thought the office looked cleaner than a hospital. It would be difficult to find anything in here without leaving obvious signs of his intrusion...so he decided then and there not to bother with keeping everything in its place.

Erik started by browsing through the desk, not noticing anything of importance there. Mostly it was just academic astronomy papers...and then there was the weird rock, just sitting there on a pillow. Erik picked it up and put it back down, then picked it up again and gave it a second look. Wait a minute...was this a space rock? Was it part of an asteroid? Was it something important at all?

He seriously doubted it. Erik knocked the rock off its pillow and watched with a look of disdain as it rolled under the desk, out of sight and out of mind. Good. This place needed to be messed up. He went over to the bookshelves and started pulling a few off at random as well, letting them fall to the floor in haphazard piles. The abstract art hanging around did not remain untouched either. Erik deliberately tilted one print askew and then made his way to the leather couch thing in the corner.

He kicked over the silly pink house sitting on the floor and took his time to examine what was within the wooden closet. Suits! This was the well-dressed man from the auction, wasn't it? Well. He respected the man's taste in suits, so wouldn't touch those. He moved over to the impressive tie display case instead and plucked out the first one from the second row.

What a beautiful blue colour - and it had a print on it too. He wanted the tie (which would go nicely with his frosty eyes), so he pocketed it and then headed for the door. The room was messy, a tie was clearly missing, and who knew how long it would take the Astronomy professor to find his pet rock, but Erik hadn't completely left the place in shambles. He hadn't touched the boring science fiction models, and he hadn't found a clue relating to what he was looking for.

No matter. The office looked better to him now than it had when he had entered. A thin smirk on his lips, Erik left the office and locked it magically behind him. He stowed his wand away and crept down the hall toward the stairs, still disillusioned and unnoticed. Yes, he was correct in building a platform around Hogwarts' lax security. Just look at how easy that investigation had been...it was like taking a pet rock candy from a baby.

He paused as he unlocked it and kept his gloved hand still on the doorknob.

Hold on, something felt off here. The sharp, blue-eyed man took out his wand and immediately spotted something moving just inside the doorway. Fanged geraniums. He froze them with a quick flick of the wand and then moved swiftly inside, closing the door behind him with a click.

He moved over to the desk first and rifled through the few papers there. The room was overall very light and tidy, so he didn't have much to dig through in search of mentions of the plant. His efforts were for the most part fruitless, unfortunately, though he did pause over by the corkboard. The professor was pretty, so very pretty...he reached out a hand and plucked off a photo of the blonde and a scruffy, dark-haired man with his arm around her. He folded it in half and ripped off the portion with the man, letting it float to the floor and then crushing it under his boot. There was nothing else of use in this room here. Time to go.

Erik left behind only a few traces of his presence in Bentley's office. He tucked his half of the picture into his pocket and stole out, leaving precisely as invisibly as he had entered.

I wonder what it is he was looking for....

And now he was threatening her. Good to know the tone and script of these meetings never changed. So reassuring.

Erik cleared his throat pointedly, having eyes only for Trelawney at the moment. "You won't kill her," he addressed the man evenly. "It's too late in the game for that. She's too visible, and would be missed." The game he was referring to was the election, which he would NOT lose now because one of the candidates he could be most closely linked to had perished. He wasn't talking about himself when he said she would be missed maybe.

"You can, however, have your way with these two." He pulled two snapshots out of the interior pocket of his jacket and tossed them on the table.
The rest can be read in Moribunds Pub, but to put it in context, he was speaking to a certain Mr. Trelawny

As Sky would say, Meepers!

Necessary double post:

What's going on with these three ladies?

And stopping there would've been sufficient, but she oddly felt the need to say more. For whatever reason. "It is also their responsibility to make sure that the professors are professional," take that however you wanted "and teaching in ways that will actually reach the students. And setting aside biases that are detrimental to those they are teaching. The Board should also make sure that the students are ready for the real world, not just in their education, but their attitudes. Most people would argue that that is the job of the parents, but some parents fail at this and force the school to pick up the slack." Okay, she hadn't meant for that to come out! Her mouth was running away with her! She sat there for a minute biting her lip, trying to get her mouth back under control. Once she felt that she had it, she started speaking again.

"Anyway, the Board should work with Hogwarts to implement plans that would address these things, and push hard if the Headmistress or Headmaster refuses something that the Board feels is really important." And there went her mouth again. Something was going on here........

"Actually I myself taught an Alchemy class here only a few terms ago." Thea said quietly, to her old friend. "And every term for several years now, several seminars covering a range of advanced subjects have been offered as tasters for students. I believe I'm not the only one here who has done that, either." Sherman Clark had done something on Bell Jars hadn't he? "Hopefully it can continue though."

She literally couldn't stop herself from speaking. It just came out, the words spilling over themselves oddly, her eyes strangely bright.

And now ALTHEA wanted to fall asleep. Seriously boring question. And not at ALL important since it was summed up word for word in the actual job description.

She stood up and went over to the podium. Her turn again.

"That is literally the most boring possible question anyone could ask. Boring questions are going to get boring answers. So its your fault if you get bored enough to fall asleep." She began, giving a pointed look at that little girl and then turning her attention out at the crowds.

"The founding documents of the Board of Governors say a whole lot of things about the duties, all of them are treated as equally important and oh so serious." She made a 'serious' face but barely stopped for a breath, instead continuing in a steady stream of words, more conversational than oratorical.

"I'm certain the students here today don't want to hear about all of that numbered and annotated and officially boring claptrap, and really that is where my answer lies. Our duty is to do whatever it takes to keep the machine that is Hogwarts --if I may borrow a muggle metaphor-- running. Your professors and Headmistress are the cogs that keep the machine running smoothly, and The Board of Governors are the tools that fix things when there's something blocking up the works. The machine spits you all out --theoretically speaking-- as useful and amazing parts that will soon enough find a fit in some other machine, but while you're passing through this one, through Hogwarts, nothing should get in your way. And the Governors have the duty of making sure that is true. The machine shouldn't have hiccups. It shouldn't run out of power. The cogs shouldn't be faulty or missing. That is what is important." She pointed at the student seating area, looking a little bit... sparky around the edges, like she'd been rolling in woolen sheets that had her both mussed up and shocked by the static.

"You're important. All of you. Even those of you that I don't like, and even those of you that don't like me or care what I have to offer you or say to you. Our duty, the Board's duty is to you and to your families, and subsequently to the Wizarding Community as a whole." It was a steady stream of words, loud and clear, and delivered with the kind of fervor one might find in an activist. The sentiment was certainly hers, but the word choices, the delivery.... something was not right. Not at all. Her eyes found those of Dash Scabior out there in the General Seating.

...

....

and she blew him a kiss before returning to her seat, though it could almost have been for anyone.

One more question left, that meant Lourdes had to make this good and entertaining. But if she got boring, not her fault anymore.

The woman stood up and went to the podium for her turn. "Honestly, I don't think there is a 'most important' duty for a member of the Board of Governors. I say that each duty and responsibility must be treated equally with the rest to maintain balance." Just like Althea over there who seemed to have gone mad. Lourdes was STILL struggling from talking nonsense and, to be truthful, it was hard work. She couldn't talk too much and had to put most of her words in a nutshell. "I know that we make each and everyone, especially the students currently being educated at Hogwarts, one of the top priorities. Making sure that Hogwarts continues to run smoothly and that students, staff members, everyone is safe between the boundaries of the magical school. Hogwarts was built to provide adequate education to the wizarding youth so that they could choose the path they'd take in the future. Also encourage the students to continue to learn and enjoy themselves with whatever interests them...like magical sports, clubs, magical creatures, whatever floats their banana boats." Goodness, Lourdes, stop talking. "Oh, what gives? Each and everyone of the candidates have brilliant answers." Wait hold up. What was going ON with her mouth? It slipped, and she didn't even want to say that. Something was messing with her, and she did NOT like it.

Anyway. "If I am ever elected as member of the Board of Governors, I promise to fulfill my duties and take on whatever obligation wholeheartedly." And until her last breath. Gosh. "Thank you." And happy dunking!

Lourdes nodded and offered a smile to everyone in the place. She then returned back to her seat. So... how would it feel, being dunked? Consider it... an experience.
You can read more at the debate.

"We are now going to take a break for about thirty or so minutes. During this time, please take a break and enjoy the snacks at the refreshment table. Also, on your chair is a special ballot. Please mark your selection for whom you believe was the winner of this debate. Your vote will automatically be added to our tally card. At the end of the break, we will come back and announce the top three candidates. AND....we will dunk the bottom three candidates!!!!” she said excitedly as she raised her hands in the air. She waited for people to start standing up before she stepped down from the platform.

She hurried back to her seat and picked up the master tally card to watch the votes come in.

OOC: Please vote for your favorite three candidates in the poll above. We are going to leave this poll up for twenty four hours and then reconvene the debate, so make sure you get your votes in! Feel free to rp about the debate and eat and drink and be merry!
So hurry over and vote!!

"And now the moment you've been waiting for....the bottom three vote recipients." she waited to add a little bit of drama and continued, "At the bottom of the pack....Layla Dacosta." as soon as the professor said the woman's name...her chair rose up in the air and levitated to the first dunking booth hovering just above the charmed colored liquid, "In second from last, Amelia Thorne," and just like that her chair followed suit and hovered over the second booth, "And finally third from last....Nolan Reynolds," and just like that his chair rose and hovered as well.

The Top Three:
1. Althea Schirmer
2. Erik Vinteren
3. Carter Phillips
3. Sherman Clark

The Bottom Three:
14. Nolan Reynolds
15. Amelia Thorne
16. Layla Dacosta

Which meant this man was a natural.

How much to tell..? Could he trust Erik to keep quiet about certain events? "As for some of the others.. That Schirmer made a prat of herself, if you ask me. Couldn't stop talking..." A gleam in his eye was hinting at the purpose behind this. Would Erik ask, was he suspicious?

Or so everything he'd read and encountered about the female candidate said. "You vouldn't happen to have any ideas as to vhat caused that, now vould you?"

Yes, it was best if Erik didn't know that he had added Babbling Beverage to certain drinks backstage.

"I see," he said quietly. Erik allowed a moment of silence to fall between them as he finished his firewhiskey before speaking again. "Mr. Berg, I vink we will get along very nicely this campaign season..."

He smiled again.


It seems we have found the reason behind several of the candidates' long-winded and ridiculous answers! But wait, there's more!

SPOILER!!: Further Shiftiness

And from what Bjorn had heard and read, the aura around Reynolds was off in more than one way.

"And yet, it would be prudent to focus our attentions on him. His momentum is down after the debate results today. Perhaps I should chat him up at the Ministry for the bash.. get to know him better.." Bjorn thought he had a fairly decent idea of how to rile him right before the next debate, just enough to get in his head a bit. Certainly nothing overtly dirty! No, they did not want any whisper of foul play to come back on their campaign.

He said nothing further about 'auras', as he wasn't sure how to address that frilly word without directly insulting Bjorn. If the man believed in them, then he believed in them. Erik would just keep his own thoughts on the subject to himself.

And people wondered why he wasn't talkative.

"That vould be appreciated," the blue-eyed man agreed for a second time. He paused as though considering something, and then leaned in again. "I vant to keep an eye on Carter, Roxanne Carter as vell. There vas something exchanged between her and Reynolds at the debate...something I didn't like but didn't hear entirely." He simply did not like seeing his competition get along so swimmingly. What if they wised up and chose to pool their resources? He couldn't have that. Just think of all the people he would have to imperius and assassinate then...too much work.


Watch out, Nolan and Roxanne!

Dust dust dust and...oh?

Are those foot prints on the ground? Is it just your imagination? More importantly, where have all the trophies gone?


SPOILER!!: Daichi and Oaktree (reactions!)

He knew he had to try harder during practises but right now he simply did not have a motivation. That was why he was on the third floor. To see all the trophies that Slytherin had won over the years in the hope of getting more motivated.

He opened the door with a small sigh and walked inside the room. Only to find....it empty.

Daichi rubbed his eyes. He had not slept well last night so maybe he was seeing things that wasn't there.

WAIT...

THERE LITERALLY WASN'T ANYTHING! apart from the dust

"KYAAAAAAAAA~!" Merlin's beard, he sounded like a girl screaming! probably loud enough for the whole corridor to hear." SLYTHERIN'S TROPHIES!" He panicked as he ran a hand through his hair, messing it up. Actually, ALL the trophies were gone but Daichi was mainly focusing on his own house trophies because they were MORE IMPORTANT!

This was NOT GOOD...not good at all! "WHERE..." He ran to the other side of the room and looked around in every corner.

NOT A SINGLE TROPHY IN SIGHT!

"Oh no..oh no oh no!" he kept mumbling under his breath as he nervously bit his fingernails. What if someone else came in and they saw HIM standing here?! He would surely be a suspect but...He hadn't done anythiiiiiing~! He had to find someone, AND QUICK!

Why was the Slytherin freaking out running back and forth in the room. Was..he...missing..something...
"FLIPPING FLOBBERWORMS!"
Oakey bellowed as he too now realized there were NO Trophies in the the Trophy Room. "Daichi!" Oakey yelled to the Snake Prefect as he ran in. "Daichi, what did you!? Where did the Trophies go?!?" He rushed over to where most of the Hufflepuff Trophies should have been standing and felt the dusty wall behind it, turning around he stumbled and grabbed the Duckboy by the shoulders tightly holding him still. "Daichi what happened!?" Oakey's face was visibly nervous. What if Daichi had been practicing spellwork in the Trophy Room, then Poof! ALL GONE!!!

Ho-de-dum, you're wandering about on the grounds one day when out of the blue, a shadow falls over you. You look up as you realize the shadow's just a regular old post owl, dropping off leaflets and pamphlets all over the grounds.

Better open one up and see what it's all about.

----

ooc: this is just a fun announcement to let you know that you now have a reference source on all of our candidates and their managers right here in this forum! use it wisely now.

The Bunz has given her end of the term speech!

Even if she was still mad at them ALL..... whoever the 'them' was that had put gassy cows in her office....

"Welcome to the end of term feast, everyone. I hope you have all studied hard and had a successful year. We are, as always, proud of all our students, and are especially proud of our graduates, the class of 2080." She looked around at the table, not showing a bit of happy emotion for the students. "I would also like to congratulate our House Cup winners, Hufflepuff; our Quidditch Cup champions, also Hufflepuff; and our Gobstones winners, Slytherin." She clapped her hands lightly and a flock of house elves scurried into the room, all carrying celebratory bowls of ice cream. "Please be sure to enjoy dessert along with your meal today, as we are celebrating not only our House, Quidditch, and Gobstones champions, but we are also celebrating the start of something new." A new partnership, of sorts. Bunz eyed the ice cream starting to create a stir and continued talking.

"This term was a unique one because we had our first-ever open election for the Hogwarts Board of Governors. The Hogwarts Staff and current Board members did an excellent job of attempting to educate you all on how a democracy works and on how our own school is run. To show the importance of last month's election, Hogwarts even went so far as to host a voting booth on this floor. We also allowed you all -- our students -- to vote, regardless of whether you are of age or not. I'd like to announce those results now."

She reached down by her empty plate and picked up a tiny scroll, which she unrolled ceremoniously. "The nine candidates elected by the Hogwarts students' MOCK vote are: Atticus Aldredge, Sherman Clark, Cooper Cope, Gavin Higareda, Ivy Knox, Carter Phillips, Nolan Reynolds, Althea Schirmer, and Corineus Vanderbilt. How nice of you all to vote. Hogwarts thanks you for your participation in this process."

The redhead paused and looked up from her scroll with a tiny, just minuscule, evil little smile at the students. "And as much as we do appreciate your voting, students, here are the REAL results. Here are the nine people who were REALLY elected to the Board, and who will be serving our school for possibly DECADES to come.

"The wizarding public has elected: Atticus Aldredge, Sherman Clark, Cooper Cope, Ivy Knox, Carter Phillips, Nolan Reynolds, Althea Schirmer, Corineus Vanderbilt, and Erik Vinteren to the Board. Please congratulate these fine Governors if you see them around the school in the future, and as always, remember your manners around them."


She rolled her little scroll back up and dropped it to the table. "With that, I have no further announcements, save for one: If anyone EVER enters into my office without FIRST RECEIVING MY EXPRESS PERMISSION to do so, EVER AGAIN, so help me Merlin I WILL be serving their heads on a platter for the main course of the next feast." Her blue eyes flashed red all around at all four House tables, HOPEFULLY FINDING the person(s) who had pulled THAT PRANK on her, and making them feel TERRIBLE for it. Then she put on a sweet smile again and finished her speech.

"That will be all. Thank you, and enjoy your meal."
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! In true Dumbledore fashion some last minute points have been awarded!

"I'm sorry, everyone, I don't mean to interrupt your feasting," she sure didn't sound sorry, "but it appears we have a few last minute points to give out." She turned to shoot a certain LOOK the Healer's way. "For cleaning the hospital wing from top to bottom, supposedly so well that even House Elves were impressed, Healer Tillstorm would like to award six points each to Dylan Montmorency and West Odessa. That brings Slytherin House's total points score up to 5,343, so that they are officially TIED with Hufflepuff House for the 2080 House Cup."

She clapped her hands again and great big Slytherpuff banners fell down to decorate the large wall behind her. "It seems a congratulations are in order for the first tie in recent memory. That concludes our speech and term, everyone, please eat now."

She sat back down again with a Huff and dragged a bowl of mashed potatoes her way. Woman needed carbs after all that talking and seething.
IT'S A TIE!
