Default Slytherin House Table

The house-elves have been hard at work, leaving the Great Hall spotless, the tables set with pristine silverware, and delicious smells floating up from the kitchen. Your stomach might be growling, but it isn't quite time to eat yet.

Hopefully the Headmistress will make her speech before you chew your way through your House table.

Zarina had a not so bad train ride. She encountered a nice group of people, she didn't talk much because she didn't want to embarrass herself. She could be socially awkward sometime. Only her cat made a grand entrance. Minka was an attention hog thats for sure. She left her trunk on the train along with Minka and now it was her time to go to the feast. She opened the doors and found the great hall semi empty. The newly second year thought she might be early. Well more options for her to find her seat. She scanned and saw there was a second years area. She sat down and twiddled her thumbs.

The second year slytherin began to look around the great hall. This was the first time she was here ever. She was in awe. She saw the architecture and even saw the staff table at the front. All the teachers seemed pretty nice. The big chair right smack dab in the middle was empty. Huh...guess the headmistress wasn't here yet. Her nose was smelling the awesome food wafting from the kitchens. Her stomach rumbled in protest. She massaged it and told it to hush. She would have food soon enough.

Zarina saw her fork and thought of a game she could play. Zae took it and began to see how many times she could flick it. What else was she supposed to do before the food? There was no one here to talk yet. Zae was the new girl, she didn't know anyone.

He was not going to go running to the Hufflepuff table for once. He was absolutely not going to stand around the Ravenclaw table pretending he was okay with the stank odor of superior attitudes nor was he going to go sniffing around the Gryffindor table.

If it was odors he had to deal with Declan was much happier withstanding the reeking self of entitlement from his own table.

He was displeased with his own depleting mood. It was a constant kind of misery that he knew was over dramatic but he couldn't bring himself to end it. Perhaps he was sadomasochistic--or perhaps he hated himself that much. Declan couldn't quite figure it out.

The deck of cards made a small rumbling sound as he shuffled them, over and over, in his brown hands.

They were really back at school? Blaze wouldn't admit but he was kind of glad to be back. After his father and sister were attacked it was good to have the normalcy of the school back, plus he had a library to research curses he could use when he could go find the people that did it. He knew his Uncle and cousins were already on it, but he would prove to be a real Blaze one of these days.

Once he got to the castle Eddie headed to the feast. He let Charles stay in his pocket of his robes as he looked around the Great Hall. Miranda wasn't at the puffer table yet, but he knew his sister wouldn't be far behind so he turned and made his way towards the snake table.

Letting his eyes once over the people already at the table he found a seat, "Sup"

Last year he was up at the front being sorted, but now Liam had taken the horseless carriages instead of the boats and been herded straight to the great hall and the Slytherin table. He felt old. And less important than he was last year.

He nodded to those already at the table, but didn't say anything because he didn't know them and mostly he was focused on food.

Food that wasn't there yet. Could the sorting hat hurry up, maybe?

No matter what anyone said, the Slytherin table was really the only place to sit during the feast. Katy had watched the other tables during previous feasts, and she found the general tone and mood of them... generally lacking. Too loud or too boisterous or too Hufflepuff. She was delighted to slide into a seat at the middle of her own house table and sniff in the direction of the rest.

She soon turned her attention to the inhabitants of her own table. Small girl, pretty hair (Zarina), likely to stab someone with that fork if she wasn't careful. Fun. "Shout if you plan on flinging that thing at my eyes, yeah? I need them both." Next... handsome older boy, new, looked like trouble (Declan). The deck of cards helped with that, which was why, Katy supposed, he was shuffling them like that. "Do you do tricks?" Perhaps he was the type to do close up Muggle magic. Not nearly as cool.

Default For anyone! First time at the new house table.

Oliver had a good bit of excitement for this term. But he was also feeling a little down. Hogwarts felt different without Alice.. Knowing she wouldn't be here. But he was happy for her and proud of her.. But also this was OWLs year and he had to study hard and get good marks so he could study Wandlore in Uni.

He sat at the table and made sure not to sit close to Katy.. He was still annoyed about things on the train. So maybe he'd make new friends.. not like, he wouldn't be her friend. Just like he wanted to not flip out or say anything rude..

Whatever, it was the Feast and he wanted to eat good food and then go to his room and get comfortable. And whoever wanted to talk to him was more than welcome!

Zarina was just busy doing her own thing till she felt a presence near her. She turned her head and saw a girl about her age maybe a little older sitting next to her. She did seem pretty too. As she was playing with her fork as it were, she heard the girls (Katherine) comment. She did make a good point....but it was becoming addicting. She snorted at her sense of humor. "I'll make a mental note.." Then she stopped her activity when she saw an older slytherin (Declan) with a deck of cards. Alrriggghttt she can deal with this. Card games were her thing. Her parents played some with her all the time.

She figured she might as well say her name to blonde girl but she heard her suggestion and figured it might not be the time yet. "Oohh yeahh I am down for tricks or even better let's play a game. Have you heard the game of War?" It was pretty simple to explain. It would def kill some time before the food comes.

Olly made his way toward the Slytherin table, finding himself thinking about the ways in which this feast was much different than last year's start of term feast. That was always how these things went, wasn't it? Lots of reflection on what had changed in a year. And things had certainly changed. But Olly was going to focus on the positive changes that had occurred. For one, he was a sixth year now and officially did not have to worry about OWLs. Next up were NEWTs but that was future Olly's problem. Second, he was a prefect now. The thought still terrified him just a bit but he was getting used to it. So far it hadn't been too difficult, but considering they had only been in the castle for less than five minutes things probably wouldn't stay quite as easy.

Olly had a smile resting on his face as he approached the table. He was happy to see there were already several others there, chatting and getting along. He stopped to say hi to the ones he knew first. "Hey," he greeted Declan cheerfully. He was going to make some joke about magic tricks but it seemed like he was beat to it. Olly offered a warm smile for Katy and a wave for the boy who shared his name and kept moving down the table. Prefects were supposed to interact with the little ones, right? He'd never been so good at that but he was working on it. There were two younger ones that he recognized, so he knew they must at least be second years. Unfortunately he could not remember either of their names. But his smile was friendly enough he was hoping it wouldn't matter anyway.

"Hello," he greeted them (Blaze and Liam). "Are you ready for another year at Hogwarts?" Positive energy? This was working, right? Olly moved just a little bit more down the table to where there was a completely new face. "Hello. Welcome to Hogwarts!" It would be a bit awkward if she wasn't actually new, but he was pretty positive that she was. Like 99%.... at least 94%.

There was an unspoken truth that there was something in the water at Hogwarts that provoked its students to have a penchant for the dramatic. Declan was starting to believe there was a second unspoken truth: whatever was in the water also made Hogwarts' students shorter and shorter each year.

Sup Guy (Charles) was on the lower spectrum of height averages in his house. Declan nodded at him in acknowledgement and held back the need to suggest a sigil that could help him grow a little faster.

Then there was the vocal girl. His eyes landed on her hair and he frowned at it. It was a familiar shade of grey. If his guess was correctly she was what some called blond.

"Tricks?" he repeated with some amusement. Declan's eyes sparkled as he launched her a crooked grin. "I can do those too." It seemed like the thing they were expecting. The other girl (Zarina) chimed in, and even suggested a card game. Declan gathered the deck in his hands and looked down at it inquisitively.

That was the last thing he did with these cards. Were they even suitable?

"I think I have an incorrect idea of it. I'll let you explain it," he drawled as he settled the deck on the table and gently slid it over to her (Zarina). As he waited for the girl to start her explanation or rebuke his idea, Olly made an appearance. Declan smiled at him and nodded as he passed by. "Hey!"

Food that wasn't there yet. Could the sorting hat hurry up, maybe?
Slate did not realize how long the boatride and the sorting took until this very instant. He could practically hear his stomach growling.

He groaned outloud and glanced across the table to look at his dormmate. "Did it take this long last year?" he asked. Maybe he should have eaten more on the train. He thought he'd had plenty given everyone he ran into seemed to shove food in his direction.

Not that he minded, if being friends with girls meant free food and free sports games, he would not complain.

Zarina was impressed the dude handed over his deck soo quickly. He didn't know the game of War? Well maybe being in a different country there were different ways of playing it. She began to shuffle the deck when she saw someone coming over with a special kind of badge on. She squinted her eyes to get a better look and saw the word Prefect on it. Aahhh so he was kind of in charge. She nodded towards him and muttered, "Hey there." She needed to act somewhat formal because he could get her into trouble if she wasn't careful. She wasn't THAT dumb or was she? Anywhooo back at the task at hand.

Zae was shuffling and looked at the older slytherin dude (Declan) and began to explain how she plays it. "Well basically I divide the cards till we get 26 cards all together." She began to deal them out. "Remember you gotta face them down so we both don't see.." She knew he probably knew that but just a hasty reminder. Once she dealed out 26 cards face down, she said, "So we basically flip them over and the highest card wins." She did an example. She flipped her card over and got an ace, while on his side, she flipped his over, he got 3 of hearts. "Soo I would take them both and put them on my pile.." Simple enough yeah? "If we both got the same card...then we would have to put one card face down and one card face up.." This was the test of muggle games wasn't it? She hoped she didn't freak him out too much.

She turned to her blonde haired new friend (Katherine) and suggested. "You down for a little game?"

Being ignored by Oliver stung a little bit, but Katy figured she deserved it. There were some secrets that you kept from your friends for their own good. Bloody noses were in that category. She blinked once in his direction before turning her attention back to the fork-wielding maniac and the card sharp.

"Keep that fork tines down, snakelette. Now, then..." Did she want to play a game? Yes. Did she recognize that the older boy was amused by them and kept studying the deck in his hand? Absolutely. "Do you do Tarot, then? What sort of cards are those?"

She offered a hand to the fork-wielder. "I'm Katy, by the by."

Her hands were fastidiously running through her wild curls to shake away the sensation of phantom lice that she imagined were left by the sorting hat. Teddy looked around at the Slytherin table that she was pointed towards. Oh, how she wishes she was wearing her favourite peach-and-cream saree rather than these boring, unflattering robes.

The middle Peale sister stood at the end of the table, looking for even the slightest familiar face. Jagan wasn't sorted into this house, it looked like, so she looked for at least Corbin...or even Mr. Grumpy Pants would do. Sweet skies, this was going to be a long year.

Default Katy, Ollie, Declan and Zarina and anyone really.

Oliver waved at Ollie, them being in the same house with the same name could probably be confusing for others.. or at least Oliver thought it could be. He personally had no idea since he wasn't in the habit of talking to himself. They didn't really know each other but Other Ollie seemed nice enough.

He caught the blink from Katy and of course felt a little bad. Ignoring her wasn't a typical thing he did.. He didn't like doing it. But he knew he was being lied to and it wasn't something he'd stand for. As Katy looked away he noticed the probably new Older student she was talking to and the girl who was flicking her fork? What did the fork ever do to her?

But looking across the table was probably weird and whatnot. He should strike up a conversation with people in his own section of the table.. So he looked around hoping to start one..

Never had he once played this game of War. Declan observed her explain with curiosity. This was the sort of things Muggle played. Declan thought it was simple and easy enough to spend the time. "That's not hard," he said and frowned, wondering if this made him sound like he was too far up his own butt.

A little conceited? It was too hard to think that deeply at the moment.

"They're just regular playing cards I suppose," he mumbled in response to the--once again assumed--blond girl. "I have a Tarot deck. It's not this one though." Although Declan still used the regular deck to divine. There were ways it just didn't provide as specific answers.

Katy, was the girl's name and Declan hoped he could remember it. She seemed the kind of person he should keep in mind lest he underestimate her.

"Declan," he said pointing at himself. "I should have said that a while ago."

Zarina was hearing an order? She raised an eyebrow in a challenge. She figured she could test out the waters. "And if I don't put down the fork...? I mean I am gonna need it to eat dinner.." she smirked a little bit at blondie. Zae tilted her head and wondered how this girl got Tarot Cards out of this old deck of cards. She must be from a wizarding family Zae needed to remember that. She chuckled to herself and obviously it wasn't this deck. Zae questioned, "What made you get the Tarot Cards? I heard it is a heavy branch of magic to studyy.." I mean he (Declan) was old enough to handle it clearly.

"Yeah the game is not hard at all. I mean if my siblings could get it which is not saying much, anyone can. You down for a game before the food comes?" I mean it will kill time. Plus she could have bragging rights if she won.

Oh right right. Time for introductions. Zae held out her hand and shook it with blondie whose name now was Katy. "Nice to meet ya Katy. I am Zarina or Zae for short.." She didn't care which. She heard the older dudes name was Declan. "Nice to challenge you Declan." I mean usually card players were friends right?

She caught one dude looking at her funny. She gave him a little stink eye to challenge him. She raised an eyebrow at (Oliver) and thought there was nothing wrong with playing with utensils.

The worst part of the feast was having to wait for the Headmistress to get on with her speech. Sure, there were plenty snacks available on the train journey to Hogwarts but that wasn't substantial enough to fill the stomach of a growing boy. Not nearly enough.

Maxton's stomach growled impatiently and he sighed loudly. Hurry uuuup. The twelve year old glanced around at his peers and fidgeted a tad uncomfortably. Big groups of people made him uncomfortable.

He wasn't one to strike up a random conversation so instead he just stared at everyone. He liked to people watch.

Despite the interesting and unexpected and surprising conversation she seemed to have struck with Kirk on the train, Sky figured she ought to at least start the feast at her own house table. Welcome the new snakes and all, not to mention the opportunity to see who her new house leaders would be, since both Nat and Colt had graduated.

Scanning the table, she sighed when she didn't see Vivian or Junia yet. Perhaps they'd been sitting near the back of the train and were in one of the later carriages. She did note Declan and a younger snake and Katy playing ... cards? Strange, but she wasn't really up for cards. There were also a couple unfamiliar faces too, which she would introduce herself to later. First things first, she took a seat opposite from Daisy's kid brother, because she didn't really know the younger Carden a whole lot, and he seemed ... interesting. Well, smart, at least. For a first year, now second year.

That and by sitting near him, she figured she could get a view of the staff dais for new and returning professors. "Hi. Maxton, right?" Skylar said conversationally. "I'm a friend of your sister's." Which hopefully wouldn't be a bad thing?

Nonetheless, her eyes darted up to start her usual scan of the table. C Stewart was there at the end, which meant she would have a Transfiguration Professor for more than one term! New Potions instructor, which hadn't surprised her. K Stewart returned. New face next to her, which was librarian seat, she was sure? Which made her wonder if the outburst she had witnessed last term had anything to do with Cynthia Davis not returning. The female Newton was back again, which delighted Sky. Along with Professor Myers and Healer Reed, the latter of which, she smiled. So only two new on that side of the Headmistress.

Scanning the table, she sighed when she didn't see Vivian or Junia yet. Perhaps they'd been sitting near the back of the train and were in one of the later carriages. She did note Declan and a younger snake and Katy playing ... cards? Strange, but she wasn't really up for cards. There were also a couple unfamiliar faces too, which she would introduce herself to later. First things first, she took a seat opposite from Daisy's kid brother, because she didn't really know the younger Carden a whole lot, and he seemed ... interesting. Well, smart, at least. For a first year, now second year.

That and by sitting near him, she figured she could get a view of the staff dais for new and returning professors. "Hi. Maxton, right?" Skylar said conversationally. "I'm a friend of your sister's." Which hopefully wouldn't be a bad thing?

Nonetheless, her eyes darted up to start her usual scan of the table. C Stewart was there at the end, which meant she would have a Transfiguration Professor for more than one term! New Potions instructor, which hadn't surprised her. K Stewart returned. New face next to her, which was librarian seat, she was sure? Which made her wonder if the outburst she had witnessed last term had anything to do with Cynthia Davis not returning. The female Newton was back again, which delighted Sky. Along with Professor Myers and Healer Reed, the latter of which, she smiled. So only two new on that side of the Headmistress.
Maxton continued to gaze curiously at his housemates, one elbow propped up on the wooden tabletop so that he could rest his chin on his hand. He knew he should've saved some of his train snacks. Where was his sister when he needed her? She always had spare snacks.

The second year Slytherin glanced up when he heard his name. Right, a friend of his sister. How many friends did Daisy have!? "Oh.. Um, hi. Yeah, it's Maxton," he confirmed with a small nod. "I'm sorry, I don't think I know your name." Her face looked vaguely familiar, no doubt he'd seen her around the Common Room last term.

Oh. And there went his tummy grumbling again!

The second year Slytherin glanced up when he heard his name. Right, a friend of his sister. How many friends did Daisy have!? "Oh.. Um, hi. Yeah, it's Maxton," he confirmed with a small nod. "I'm sorry, I don't think I know your name." Her face looked vaguely familiar, no doubt he'd seen her around the Common Room last term.

Oh. And there went his tummy grumbling again!
Her gaze was pulled momentarily from the other side of the headmistress when the younger Carden confirmed his name. And asked for her name, which she had somehow forgotten to mention. "Oh, I'm sorry, it's Skylar. Skylar Diggory. Our parents actually went to Hogwarts together, but mine were Hufflepuffs." Just in case he was wondering. And their mothers bore a slight resemblance too, which was sort of strange.

Hearing the tummy grumble, reminded her that she was hungry as well. Start of term feast was always worse for that; one would think after a long train ride, they would rush faster to get them fed and to sleep. Her gaze wondered up to the staff dais again, as she noted on the other side of the headmistress there was an older man probably around Paul's age, dressed way too warmly. No Justin McLeod, which also meant, new Slytherin Head of House. Quickly scanning down the rest of the table, she noted all familiar faces except the two at the end, which meant, she was having her fourth Astronomy Professor. Something she'd grown rather accustomed to, so she made a note that this one probably would only be there for a year as well.

"I'll be right back." She wanted to get a closer look to see who was wearing the green snake pin now. The healer would be nice, because she could get to know him more. Or Rose. "Save my seat."

Even though she should have waited until after the speech, the fourth year slytherin rose from her seat.

It would be a bit awkward if she wasn't actually new, but he was pretty positive that she was. Like 99%.... at least 94%.
The table was filling up quickly, now. Liam kept looking around, his attention span a bit too short to focus on one thing at a time with so much going on around him. His dormmate was here, Blaze, so Liam nodded to the other boy in greeting. He could be polite.

Then there was this older boy. Who was talking to them. He seemed alright, though, so Liam didn't mind. "Yeah," he answered, nodding, "Second year is going to be awesome. Even better than first." He had no real evidence to base that conclusion on... he just knew he was right about it.

Not that he minded, if being friends with girls meant free food and free sports games, he would not complain.
Liam directed his attention across the table when he heard another familiar voice. "Probably," he told Slate. "It just didn't seem like it because we were the ones up there." He nodded to the sorting hat, frowning. Six years of waiting were in their future, apparently. Something to look forward to.

Default mentions Katy too.
Resident Ghost of Slytherin | Hot-Tempered & Not Amused

Swooping into the hall with the chains rattling loudly as he did so the Baron passed by the other house tables swiping with his sword around as he did so.
SPOILER!!: Hovering newly sorted lady snake

The middle Peale sister stood at the end of the table, looking for even the slightest familiar face. Jagan wasn't sorted into this house, it looked like, so she looked for at least Corbin...or even Mr. Grumpy Pants would do. Sweet skies, this was going to be a long year.


On his way to claim his usual seat the silvery ghost flew right through a girl that was standing at the head of the table, giving her an unexpected icy shower welcome. Giving her a look over his shoulder the Baron grumbled. "Find yourself a seat young lady. There are quite a few vacant ones."

Hovering over to the empty seat next to Katy Toussaint still with sword in hand the Baron boomed out probably right in Katy's ear. "Weeeeeeeelcome! Welcome to the most noble house of Slytherin! We've won the house points championship three years straight, let's make it a fourth!" Letting his eyes run over the faces he beckoned around with his sword as he talked. "I am the Bloody Baron for those that don' know who I am. I'm the house ghost of Slytherin."

SPOILER!!: Fork Lady

She must be from a wizarding family Zae needed to remember that. She chuckled to herself and obviously it wasn't this deck. Zae questioned, "What made you get the Tarot Cards? I heard it is a heavy branch of magic to studyy.." I mean he (Declan) was old enough to handle it clearly.
"Yeah the game is not hard at all. I mean if my siblings could get it which is not saying much, anyone can. You down for a game before the food comes?" I mean it will kill time. Plus she could have bragging rights if she won.
Oh right right. Time for introductions. Zae held out her hand and shook it with blondie whose name now was Katy. "Nice to meet ya Katy. I am Zarina or Zae for short.." She didn't care which. She heard the older dudes name was Declan. "Nice to challenge you Declan." I mean usually card players were friends right?
She caught one dude looking at her funny. She gave him a little stink eye to challenge him. She raised an eyebrow at (Oliver) and thought there was nothing wrong with playing with utensils.


Turning his eyes to meet that of the second year girl that was playing with her silverware and a deck of cards the Baron demanded of her. "Just what are you doing with that fork young lady? You'll be served dinner soon enough. And why have you brought a deck of cards to the feast?" Seriously, kids these days. Didn't they get taught proper feast etiquette anymore?

Someone's list of accolades was growing already, did the others know? Princess, Girlfriend, Head Girl's SISTER, Best Friend, Dueler extraordinaire. She was tempted to add helper of small Slytherins to the list, but she didn't really KNOW any of the small Slytherins just yet, and small kids could be gross sometimes. She had to be sure they weren't little nose-pickers or whiners before she agreed to THAT title.

Head held high, she approached the table and was disappointed when she didn't see Ru or Abey. Abey who was her cousin and also who tended to sit with them during feasts, even if he WAS a Gryffindor. Hopefully they'd be along soon as it was sort of a tradition to face these days together.

"Hello everyone," Junia curtsied before taking up an empty seat. "Hello Bloody Baron, Sir." What was he saying about forks and cards? The fourth year raised her eyebrows slightly and followed his gaze, curious.

Maxton blinked in shock and confusion when Skylar claimed their parents had been at Hogwarts together. How did she know that? Was she a stalker!? His mum and dad had been prefects when they were at school, he supposed Skylar may have seen their names in the Trophy Room or something. Carden wasn't a particularly popular surname after all. He hoped that was the case and that she wasn't a stalker.

He was about to ask her when the older girl asked him to save her seat and hurried off.

Maybe he ought to do a runner as well. The Bloody Baron had decided to turn up and the Slytherin ghost gave Maxxie the heebie jeebies.
