Ravenclaw Ravenclaw Quidditch Party

Congratulations, Ravenclaw!


SPOILER!!: before the party got started
Shortly following the final Quidditch match of the term, a large navy banner with the bronze heading of 'Quidditch Cup - 4th Place' is displayed across the length of the room. Various streamers have been hung and small pieces of white confetti have been enchanted to sprinkle from the ceiling. On the far right side of the room, a table has been set up, a large blank space directly in the middle with various sweets and beverages on either side of the vacant space.


Thanks to a few fourth years, drastic changes have been made to the party. Streamers still hang about, and the floor is covered in white confetti that still falls from the ceiling, but the sign reads something different. Instead of 'Quidditch Cup - 4th Place' it reads 'Ravenclaws: FIRST in FUN'. The furniture has all been moved aside to make room for the large slip and slide that starts at the top of the boys dorms and can slide you all the way out of the common room if you're going fast enough.

Wizrock music blares from a medium sized radio in the corner of the room, making it somewhat difficult, but not impossible to hold a proper conversation without raising your voice some.

That large table with sweets, beverages, and a place for the trophy still sits off to the side, abandoned by most in favor of the slip and slide.

Won't that fourth place trophy look wonderful there?

Until the Official delivers the trophy, help yourself to some refreshments and nourish yourself. Your house has earned it.

Mo was somehow early back to the Common Room, in spite of his penchant for delay and chatter and distraction. He settled his broom against the wall before circling the food table and the trophy table to take in the sign.

Congratulations on a fourth place? Out of FOUR?

Why not just celebrate mediocrity? No... Ravenclaws were awesome, and they should celebrate what they did right this term. Mo climbed up on the blank table and took hold of one side of the banner, giving a gentle tug to pull it down.

Nigel wad a tad bit early. But whatever. He set his broom to the side and looked up to see Mo taking down the banner. Good idea. There was no need to celebrate 4th place. That is absurd.

This should be party to celebrate winning the last match of the year. Nigel climbed up the table and took hold of the other side of the banner and helped Mo pull it down. Nobody should celebrate fourth place. Especially when there are only four teams.

"Now lets have a Party"

All they needed now was a slip n' slide and some super soakers. Because why not.

Well, Hogwarts was incredibly optimistic, wasn't it?

Not that Blue minded all that much. It was nice to be... happy. The fourth year shuffled down the steps, all stuffed up and rather well, poorly. Far too poorly to go out practically having her arm ripped out of the sockets.

Blue squinted at the banner for fourth place. It was very Hufflepuffish to celebrate last place, though there wasn't anything wrong with that, of course. The Eaglette went straight to the butterbeer and then wandered over to Mo and Nigel. "Congrats you guys." Snuffle. No handshaking unless you wanted her GERMS. "Sorry I couldn't play." She sneezed into her crumpled tissue and gave them one of those gross, sickly smiles.

It took a lot of deciding and thought and many other things before Dora ultimately parted from Theo and headed back up to her common room. She wanted to spend the day with him for obvious reason, but they had separate house parties (which was stupid) and so they couldn't do what they did last year, could they? Sigh.

Tugging the lion hat off of her head, the fourteen year old entered her common room still in her Ravenclaw outfit and Gryffindor accessories. She paused to eye the hat for a moment and then decided that it actually was a good idea to come back to her common room, so she could change into something more fitting.

"A party without music." She commented offhandedly, in response to Nigel. Not that she cared or anything. Just that she noticed there was no music. Just like she noticed the banner as it was being taken down.

The Seeker draaaaaaaagged his feet into the room. He was NOT in the mood to party, you know. There just wasn't anything to celebrate. He didn't catch the snitch. And while he would be glad Penelope did, it's not like she won. It would've been better if she caught the snitch and won. Or he won and caught the snitch. But this...just felt weird.

Not to mention the whole fourth place thing. Which Mrs. James HAD to ANNOUNCE to the WHOLE SCHOOL of their FAILURE.

And just there was nothing good about anything. Not even the sweets.

He'd left his broom and uniform in the locker room, not wanting to deal with it, and was now wearing just a t-shirt and shorts. And a frown. He continued dragging his feat to the sofa, where he flopped backward on it, over the armrest, letting his legs dangle.

"We're just going to change what we're celebrating, is all," Mo decided as he stepped back to lower the banner down to the desk top. He'd leave that to Nigel for the moment, although it was really his project. Blue and Dora each got a nod as they appeared in turn, although Mo was much more intent on floating furniture out of the way around the table.

"Isidora Yelena just volunteered to be in charge of the music. Did everyone hear her? I heard it." He flashed a toothy sort of smile at Dora and waved his wand again, sending a chair skittering across the floor in her direction.

"You feel alright, Blue? Wish you coulda been there today, but we did you proud." He could understand her skipping the game, considering how crappy he'd felt up until recently. He was only JUST over this stupid disease and the game had been hard on him.

"Let's decide what sort of party this is, then. We have music from Isidora Yelena, so we can dance like crazy people. We have all this floor space, plus I can collapse the stairs to the girls dorm... we can make a down hill slip and slide the length of the room that shoots you out the door into the corridor. OR we can stand here and celebrate being awesome at being last." And since there were no prefects around, it was up to the first ones there to set the tone. RIGHT?

Ethan was in the best mood he had been in a long time. Ravenclaw just won their last match of the term.. his last match at Hogwarts.. and he thought he had played pretty well on top of it. He blocked a bunch of shots from some very formidable opponents.. and only got bitten once by the infamous Captain Biter. Sure, it would have been nice to have won by more points so they could have taken third place (because last place generally sucked), but he was more than happy with the game win. That other stuff, he wasn't even going to think about.

As he entered the common room, his eyes fell on several of his Claws already assembled there, some of them teammates. He flashed them a grin and neared them, ready to celebrate their win. He grabbed some sort of delicious looking pastry from the table and took a bite. "Hey, guys.. great game, yeah?" Then he eyed Mo. "You alright, Mate?" He seemed fine, but he had seen the younger Chaser get hit by a bludger and he knew how they could hurt.

And what was going on with Aidan? Ethan took a seat next to their Seeker, who was flopped in a weird position on the couch. Yeah, this party needed some livening up.. "We got music or something?" he called out to the others as he craned his neck over the back of the couch towards them. It was too bad his girlfriend couldn't be here right now. He'd love to dance with her.

Once the banner was down. Nigel stepped off the table, folded it up, and moved it off to the side. He gave a nod to Blue. Who was looking pretty sick. Now he knew why she missed the game. He was just thinking about the music. When Dora raised a good point. "That is a good point.". Nigel did not really feel like bring his guitar down here to play. So let someone else deal with it.

It seemed that Aidan had come back to the common room. But was in a bad mood. Nigel could not think why. Unless it was because he did not catch the final snitch. But they won. So it did not matter. So Dora was in charge of music now. Dangerous game Mo. Dangerous game. Not even asking if she wanted to be in charge of music.

"The Slip N' Slide sounds like fun." Then Ethan "The Wall" came into the room. So Nigel guessed no slip n slide."Nothing wrong with being awesome"

But who needs music. When you have a Slip N' Slide.

Dora watched Aidan as he came in and was being all moody teenager on them. Well... she supposed someone had to be. She would just allow him to be that and question him on it later before she left the party.

Returning her attention back to everyone else, she rolled her eyes at Mo, but was smiling all the same as she drew her wand from it's holster. "I have a radio." It would me much easier to summon down than her gramophone and records. She watched him move furniture around and aimed her wand for the girls dorms, summoning the magical device.

"If we're doing this," She looked away from everyone, catching the medium sized radio as it flew into her hands from the girl's dormitory. "This end of the quidditch season party, there should be a slip and slide." Because it just sounded awesome and she would stick around a bit for that.

be curious, not judgmental

When James arrived at the Ravenclaw common room, she was expecting faces much like, if not worse, than what she had seen from some Hufflepuffs. But... the Ravenclaws actually seemed pretty lively. Maybe she should have come to see the Ravenclaws sooner. If there were dementors around, this bunch was probably just as likely to attract them as the Slytherins were.

But the Official wasn't really too concerned as she placed one hand on her hip, the other holding the shimmering white trophy, and basked in the glory of what looked like a summertime winter wonderland. The white confetti had made the room look snow-covered, which wasn't intentional, but James ended up putting a reluctant end to the falling confetti. She kicked it around a bit, walking into the room further to catch the Ravenclaws' attentions, "A Slip and Slide? That sounds like a good time." Would they let her stay? They probably needed supervision for that kind of thing, yeah? Make sure no one broke a neck?

"...I also have a special delivery for Elise Fairfield." James held up the shiny white trophy purposefully. Where was the captain to claim the trophy for everyone? HMMM?

"We're doing this," Mo said seriously. Very seriously. He gave Dora the nod to turn up music. Loud music. And then he bent his attention to finishing the new and improved banner. Nigel could take care of the Slip N Slide, since he was so keen on the idea. And poor Aidan was going to be forced down the slide first.

Mo glanced up when Professor James appeared, his first reaction guilt. The sign was down, they were obviously celebrating in spite of coming in last place... would she be mad? She didn't look mad. "'Lise isn't here yet, Professor, but maybe Ethan can take it? He's our prefect and our only seventh year and he was definitely MVP last game and he's really awesome." He'd taught the fourth year boys to shave, after all.

And just for effect, Mo climbed back on the empty table to re-hang the sign, which now read: Ravenclaws: FIRST in FUN

Lily snuck in the common room right behind Professor James. She had been down watching the match but took her time getting back to the tower.

Hearing the words Slip and slide she looked around. There wasn't a slip'n slide around. So where were they planning on getting it? or making it? Either way, she made her way further into the common room and hopped onto one of the seats that Mo was moving to the side. Smirking at him, she turned her attention back to the professor. Where was Captain Elise?

Okay. So Dora was in charge of the music and Mo was in charge of the banner. That left him with the slip n' slide. Awesome. Even Professor James thought it was a great idea. Now they had to do it. Nigel raised his wand and summoned the slide from the boys dorm.

Nigel made sure to set it up correctly so it just shot you through the common room. You could change it later. But it was more awesome this way. Nigel wished it was longer so you could make it a more awesome slide. But whatever. "Okay the Slip N' Slide is set up. But we could always add more water. If wanted"

Now it was time to test it out. Since Nigel set it up. "You can stay if you want Professor James" Nigel said smiling. Nigel walked up to the start of slide. Stepped back to get a running start. Ran and jumped onto it. Nigel slid down the slide and it was so much fun. Nigel stood up.

"It is awesome and working" Nigel said smiling and trying to get his hair dry. But he would probably try it again.

Ravenclaw Woooo partyyyy!

Eliza galloped into the common room shortly after Professor James and Lily. She'd taken extra nice care of her game robes, cleaning and folding them nicely into her locker before coming to the party. She didn't want them to get too mussed up, and she also had taken a little time to enjoy the feeling of winning her very first game, just in case she didn't make the team next year or something. It was bittersweet for her - getting to play her first game during Ethan's last game. But she would try not to think of him graduating right now because she knew how it would make her feel, so instead she focused on the positive. Because they had positively won that match!

She was all smiles as she looked at that white trophy in Professor James' hands. It didn't even matter that they were in fourth place, because they had won the game and it had been a great time. She looked at the banner above Mo's head as he climbed down from what looked like some kind of an adjusting pose. She walked over to him and jutted her chin upwards at the banner in praise. "First in fun, I like it!" She flashed her wide bright smile at him and nodded again. She really did like her teammates, quite a lot.

The general positivity, save for Aidan whom she would check on in a moment, was really great for what had been going on at Hogwarts this turn. She grabbed a cold butterbeer and sipped it slowly, tapping her foot to be music as she stood there just soaking in the good vibe from everyone. From her housemates. Her housemates. She was finally starting to feel like she belonged here after all. She gave Ethan a meaningful look from across the room and smiled with a nod at him. When she saw an opening, she rushed over to her first true friend at Hogwarts and gave him a huge hug and a pat on the arm once it was released. "Awesome, awesome, AWESOME goal keeping today, E! And how about that commentary? You've got a nice lil' nickname now!" She knew Ethan had had his reservations about his position this year, but this game had shown just how great of a player he was. Everyone in the stands had loved him, she could hear it all the way down on the pitch every time they'd cheered at his blocking.

....

After taking a few more sips of her butterbeer, she decided it was time to check on Aidan. She stepped carefully to his side, since she could do that now right? Because they were teammates? "Hey Aidan," she said brightly, "You were really great today!" And him being a Ravenclaw and all, she figured he'd want a little more than a fluffy compliment. "It was a great match. Sure, we didn't get the last snitch, but you really helped us get the win! And that's awesome in itself, fourth place or no. Yunno?" She smiled at him, trying to get him to feel better. No one was disappointed in him whatsoever, so he definitely shouldn't be down on himself. "You want to try the slide or something?" she offered. Maybe if he had a little push into the fun zone, it would have a snowball effect on him, or so she hoped.

The room turned cold and dementors made their way.

The radio was already set to Dora's favorite WizRock station, which also happened to be great for parties, and turned up the volume so that it would take a little effort to actually hold a proper conversation. Why WOULD anyone want to have proper conversations and not a fun time in the common room, she didn't know, but whatever. It wasn't gonna happen.

"Hey, Professor James!" Dora shouted over the music and placed the radio on a empty table, grinning at the older woman. Was she gonna join them? Cause she was so welcome to. The fourth year approved of this woman who she'd never have a lesson from.

She admired the slip and slide, making her way over to have her turn, shooting Nigel a small approving smile, even as a chill ran down here. Why did it all of a sudden get so cold? "Awesome, Nigel. We can always do more water if we want." Warm water. Cause it was actually cold, which was saying something for her.

Dora shivered again and started her way up the slide.

Aidan grunted and groaned each time someone came near him. Ethan got a groan. Dora got a groan, especially for putting on the music. Eliza DEFINITELY got a groan. Even worse, she was talking to him. At least Ethan had the decency to let a man be when he's down. But girls? Ugh. What was it with them and talking?

Also. It was all fluff. It was all nonsense. Lies and fibs and fluff. He was not great today. Good, perhaps. But a 'great' Seeker would've caught the bloody snitch, at least. That WAS the point of Seeking and all.

'Yunno?' Silly girl for asking. "No," he grunted in response.

"No," he said again, about the slide. Did he LOOK like he wanted to try the slide? He didn't. He wanted to go to his dorm. But Ethan said there'd be chicken nuggets. That was all he was here for. Honestly, those could probably make him feel better. So could sweets, if he wasn't too stubborn to eat some.

Then, that horrid chill came over him. Was it from the Slip and Slide? Did Mrs. James enchant the room colder, expecting everyone to get warm from partying? Aidan couldn't really tell. He didn't want to even sit up. Less so since that chill came about. In fact, he rolled onto his side to face the back of the couch, and curled up his legs in a fetal position.

Today was a horrible day, Eliza. How could you even think otherwise?

Also. It was all fluff. It was all nonsense. Lies and fibs and fluff. He was not great today. Good, perhaps. But a 'great' Seeker would've caught the bloody snitch, at least. That WAS the point of Seeking and all.

'Yunno?' Silly girl for asking. "No," he grunted in response.

"No," he said again, about the slide. Did he LOOK like he wanted to try the slide? He didn't. He wanted to go to his dorm. But Ethan said there'd be chicken nuggets. That was all he was here for. Honestly, those could probably make him feel better. So could sweets, if he wasn't too stubborn to eat some.

Then, that horrid chill came over him. Was it from the Slip and Slide? Did Mrs. James enchant the room colder, expecting everyone to get warm from partying? Aidan couldn't really tell. He didn't want to even sit up. Less so since that chill came about. In fact, he rolled onto his side to face the back of the couch, and curled up his legs in a fetal position.

Today was a horrible day, Eliza. How could you even think otherwise?



Well that was not how she had hoped that would go. She sighed to herself, but still tried to maintain an air of encouragement. She wasn't going to give up on someone when they were down because she knew very well that was when they needed people to believe in them the most. But, she wasn't completely oblivious to how he was feeling, so she didn't press it. So when he refused to comply how she wanted, she simply smirked a little bit sideways and let her hazel eyes look around the room. But she did stay there, next to him, to be supportive.

And it was a good thing she did, because now there were dementors in their common room!? "Seriously?" she breathed out incredulously. If Aidan was already feeling this awful, he could definitely not produce a patronus. But would that mean they wouldn't want him anyway because he was already so sad? She wasn't sure, but she wasn't about to let them take his soul without a fight - even though he hadn't been particularly nice to her, you couldn't just let people get attacked by dementors without blinking an eye. She took a defensive stance in front of him, although she was shaking from the cold and the fear, and raised her beech wand in her left hand and tried to think of the happiest memories she could. All the while, she silently hoped a professor would help them before she had to try to cast. Was Professor James still around with the trophy? She wanted to cry out for her, but she dare not take her eyes off the dementors that were slowly encroaching on their merriment.

Well. PARTY RUINERS. Why were the dementors here? And COULD Professor James drive them away with a Patronus? Mo patted himself down before calling himself all sorts of names. His wand still sat down on the desk where he'd been decorating the banner.

He would be the first to die or something.

"Professor James. I'm finding an adult, and that adult is you. Can you please make the dementors get out? We have cake to eat." He tried really really hard to keep his tone light and jocular, although obviously it was hard not to sound like he was eating his own tongue out of fear.

Elise was't exactly the happiest Ravenclaw at this party thing but she was far from being in an 'Aidan mood'. No, she was just meditating on life and how little it meant if you win the match but lose the cup. Quite saddening, really, but what could she do? The game was over and there was nothing she could do to change that, especially now that all timeturners were destroyed. What a waste.

Just thinking about how much better it would have been if she had actually just hit Penelope with that bludger. How utterly and totally disappointing. It disgusted her to think that she hadn't even stuck with the first rule of being a Beater.

Shuffling into the common room just in time to hear Professor James say her name, she looked around. When did all these decorations happen, anyway? "I'm here, Professor," she smiled a little weakly, walking towards the lady and slowly taking in all the decoration. It was snowing confetti. How lovely.

Mo got a small finger wiggle as if to say "I'm here now?" Gaze flickering between Ethan and Mo and Professor James and the trophy a few times, she shrugged. "I wouldn't mind letting Ethan take this one. He pretty much saved the match today. He deserves it." Nodding, she waited for the professor lady to say something when suddenly, the room just got a whole lot colder. Then her face just fell and horrible things began to reappear, swimming around and voices. The voices that weren't supposed to even be there anymore. Notagain. It couldn't be another boggart, could it?

Slip 'n slide? Ethan liked the sound of that and he turned his head in the direction of the voices talking, just in time to see Mo putting up a banner. First in Fun. "Sweet," he grinned at the younger Claw, then his eyes fell on Professor James as he noticed her arrival as well.

"Hey, Professor!" The Prefect gave her a friendly smile and wave before he glanced quickly at the trophy in her hands. Right. Fourth place. But as far as Ethan concerned, they were celebrating the win of their last game, not the loss of the season. And of course, being first in fun.

Ethan grinned at Eliza as she caught his eye. Watching her as she neared, he enveloped her in a celebratory hug as she hugged him as well. He wasn't sure he could be happier right now, coming off that win.. and even his normally modest self would admit he played pretty well. Not to mention he got to share the victory and awesome match with one of his very favorite Claws. He was still grinning when he pulled away and heard her words. "Thanks, Eliza.. it was a pretty awesome game, yeah?"

He chuckled a bit as she mentioned his new nickname. He had been far too focused on the game to hear any of the commentary.. but he had heard about it. And he thought it was pretty cool. "Even better that you got to play with us in my last game.. and you did really well." Yep, he saw that goal of hers from the other side of the pitch.. not to mention her teamwork with the other Chasers. "You're going to be a great Quidditch player." It was just too bad that they wouldn't get to play in a match like that together again.

He glanced back at Aidan, still on the couch, as he directed groans towards everyone that came his way. He could not seriously be unhappy right now? Though a brief thought flashed through his mind.. hmm. "Mate.... chicken nuggets?" Well, considering the young Seeker was now curled up facing the opposite direction, maybe Ethan should bring some back for him. He got up and wandered over to the food table in time to hear James mention looking for Elise. Hmm.. he hadn't yet seen their Captain in the common room.. had she come in yet? And then what Mo said.. "You want me to accept it on her behalf?" Well.. that was flattering. He rubbed the back of his neck as his eyes surveyed the room. Ethan supposed that those things were at least remotely true.. he was the senior member of the team after all. But he really didn't want to take that away from Elise. Though he knew someone should if she wasn't here.. why not him? "Alright.."

He stepped a little closer to Professor James, then turned as he spotted Elise walking in. Well, there she is.. He gave his Captain a grin, still elated over their team's win, then furrowed his brow a bit at her words. "Oh no.. you're our Captain, you should accept the trophy. It really was a team effort.." It always was, really.. and even though he thought he played exceptionally well, especially in this game, it really did take all of them to win. Now.. wasn't there a Slip 'n Slide around here somewhere?

The Prefect started to head in the direction of the slide and he chuckled, watching Nigel go down it. Maybe he could be next, head first might be fun.. but it was a little too cold for it now, wasn't it? Cold? His eyes snapped up as they darted around the room. When did it suddenly get so very cold in here? And the distant scream beginning to filter through his head.. NO.. No no no no no.. not again.. not in here.. not now. He instinctively grabbed his wand and turned his panic stricken face towards the door. At least they had a Professor in here with them.. one whose patronus he saw a few weeks ago fend of dementors. They would be safe.. right? Then get back to their party..

SO. They were in last place score-wise, but effort-wise and fun-wise, Beezus thought otherwise. This term might not have granted them the chance to won back the Quidditch Cup, but it definitely honed their bond. And for Beezus, that was what mattered most, aside from being injury-free y'know.

Mo's banner said it. First in Fun...because they had a Slip 'n Slide, they had birdie nicknames and most especially, each other.

Oh and food AND music.

They had those awesome stuffs too.

"Professor James," She said, acknowledging the woman's presence that despite things, she managed to strike up a smile. Beezus was about to step closer to the group, hug everyone for their amazing efforts and congratulate Captain Sparrow for a splendid season when all of a sudden.....the atmosphere turned chilly.

...Ugh.

Dementors?

.......................UGH.

Feeling a lump in her throat, Beezus swallowed hard and anxiously eyed her 'Claws, especially the younger ones. Professor James won't let any harm come to them, yes? Beezus still couldn't conjure a decent patronus so she was relatively useless. Regrettingly turning her gaze at the creatures however, she GULPED.

"P-Professor?" Make the black hooded figures go away.

Default I DUNNO WHERE THE DEMENTORS WENT but there's more PARTYING on the agenda soooo.
be curious, not judgmental

Ethan was a reliable choice to present the trophy if Miss Fairfield had decided to miss out on the party... but that didn't seem to be entirely necessary as the girl had made an appearance! "Ah, Captain Fairfield! Nice of you to join us. Looks like your housemates have done a wonderful job of getting the party started and... re-decorating," James smiled, turning her gaze to Marcus as he hung up a new banner. That DID seem much better, yes. Good man. She was fond of this one. A star on the pitch, a star in life.

As Nigel started the slip and slide festivities, James passed the shining white trophy over to Elise quite cheerfully. If Elise wanted it to go to Ethan, she could present it to him. Maybe give a little speech? Have some nice things to say about their departing seventh year star Keeper?

...Or maybe she could have if the dementors hadn't made another appearance. Wonderful.

The Quidditch Official ordered, "Back away!" to everyone - upon Branxton's comment, she gave him a slight tilt of the head in confusion, weighing the likelihood that he was truly and casual and cool as he seemed and if he really cared that much about cake - before pulling her wand from her robes once more and casting, "EXPECTO PATRONUM!" Erupting from the tip of her wand was a silver mass of an angry, ferocious bear, chasing after the dementors without a moment's hesitation.

Could the Ravenclaws continue their party now? There was a lot of fun to be had.

No more dementors, a trophy... and WAS there cake? Mo pounded both fists on the tabletop to create a drumroll as Elise was invited to take the trophy. RAVENCLAWS WERE FIRST IN FUN. "SPEECH. GIVE US A SPEECH, 'LISE." Poundpoundpoundpound.

And while they waited on their speech, Mo was going to get the water started on the Slip N' Slide. It was as easy as crab-walking up the collapsed staircase (not easy, btw), getting a steady stream of water flowing from the tip of his wand, and then fixing his wand to one of the light fixtures so that it pointed down towards the plastic slide.

Aw, and what the heck. Mo seated himself on the slide and pushed off, shooting down the stairs and across the common room, where he slammed into the opposite wall. "Safety issue," he decided as he stood and gestured for other people to take their turn on the slide. "Let's open the door and slide into the hall."

And why were there two Professor Jamesesseses?
