Default Fourth-Floor Corridor


The fourth floor is the quietest floor in all of Hogwarts. Those who have been here long enough and know the layout know this as an obvious fact because the primary features of this floor are the Library and Study Hall. To soften your steps as you make your way around, a carpet drapes the entire floor of the corridor. Remember to keep your voice at a whisper because there's important studying going on in this part of the castle!

You will find large green vases placed in the corners of the corridor as well as a number of portraits. There really isn't anything exciting about the vases, though Peeves is known to pick them up and throw them at unsuspecting passersby -- it is strongly advised that you always stay alert. As for the portraits, you will likely notice right away that most of them are of peaceful landscapes. Nevertheless, you will eventually come across Brutus Scrimgeour (author of The Beaters' Bible), Hengist of Woodcraft (founder of Hogsmeade), and Edward Rabnott (a wizard with three different personalities).

Today had been a long day. After her finally lesson which just happened to be a double period for fifth years, Camilla held some training for Alchemy for several sixth and seventh years. It was after this that she was taking a detour through the corridors on her way to her office to grade some exams. It was never ending someday's but the brunette women wouldn't trade the work she did for anything else.

It was with sure steps and with muffled footsteps thanks to the carpeting along the corridor that Camilla made her way towards her office. Her hand was on the holster of her wand should she need it quickly, she was very well aware of Peeves antics and his like for causing chaos in this particular corridor.

Default Professor! Bringing Vi along
Let your light shine || Be the sun || You're important. Always.

Red tint was showing up on Noelle's cheeks as she made her way from the seventh floor corridor with Vi beside her. They were on their way to see Professor Stewart. It was really the only one that Noelle felt comfortable with to handle this.... situation.

It wasn't long though that Noelle saw Professor Stewart just ahead of them. What a coincidence!! Rushing forward a bit, Noelle called out. "Professor!" to get her attention.

Getting next to her, she eyed the wand not realizing which corridor they were in. "Oh good! Your wand is out. Would... I could use your help." She said, the red tint to her cheeks spreading. She glanced at Vi.

Merlin's beard.

Dear heavens!

Camilla started her hand instantly gripping her wand on instinct. It was never a good sign when a professor was called for like this in a corridor! "Noelle, what in the name of Merlin is going on?" A prefect shouting and racing at her through the corridor? This had best be something serious... hopefully it wasn't but that should be the only reason for this sort of behavior to be happening.

Looking between the two teens, brown eyes taking in the red tint on their cheeks. "Yes, I always have my wand out in this corridor...." She never took any chances with knowing whether or not Peeves would show up around here like he tended to do. "With what exactly? Has something happened?"

Out with it girls! If something was happening the sooner she knew about it the better!

Vi took the lead on this one but first cast a quick silencing charm around them in case someone else tried to listen.... Because this type of conversation was better had on a muted level for Noelle's sake. She could see by Noelle's pink cheeks that she already was embarrassed. "Um.. Well.. So. Noelle has a problem with her clothes sticking to her skin. I found her in the girls dormitory and we tried looking through possible reasons of what it could be... but we couldn't find anything."

The Gryffindor lass glanced at Noelle to make sure her friend was doing okay but then directed her blue eyes back to Professor Stewart. "We did think about going to Healer Reed but thought it'd be better to come find you..." Vi had no idea what to do at this situation. The textbooks hadn't helped her at all.

This was all so embarrassing.

Noelle nodded to what Vi was saying. All of it was true. "I tried the unsticking charm. I tried finite. I tried looking into potions. I just... I don't know what spell was used and I don't know how to get it off."

Not to mention her bladder was filling up. Ahem.

"Do you think you could help us professor? I would really rather wait on going to Healer Reed. " Not that she minded him. I mean, the man helped save her baby brother last year but... he was a boy and this was a delicate situation.

Noelle looked at Vi again, so appreciative that she was here and helping.

What in the world was Olivia casting a silencing charm for? Camilla looked back and forth between the two female teens waiting for someone to start explaining the meaning of this sudden encounter. Finally their was talking and the look on Noelle's face said it all. Whoever pulled this stunt would be in some trouble should she find out who was behind it.

"Of course I'll help," she replied without any thought on the matter. It was clear why they would rather not make a visit to River! "Let's go to my office or somewhere else that's more private then here and we'll figure this situation out as quickly as possible." The professor was already running over what could have been done to cause ones undergarments to stick to them.

Kei has no idea what to do with his free time, he realizes quickly. So he ends up wandering the halls of the school when he's got downtime, feeling very free to just...not do anything. To be no one but himself.

It's an interesting thought, as he's been doing that for a couple years now, but...to be able to thrust himself into this new, unfamiliar place with so many strangers that just accept him as him, it's liberating.

So there he is, taking a day to breathe easy and walk around with his kitten and talking to her while he walks. He must look mad. He doesn't find it in himself to really care.

As a seventh year, and therefore about to take his NEWTs at the end of the year, Oliver found himself spending quite a bit of time in the library. But there was only so much of that place someone could take at once. And when he absolutely could not take it anymore he packed up his things and headed out into the corridor. He really had no idea what he was going to do next, just that it was not going to involve studying. He had turned to head back to the Slytherin common room when he spotted a familiar smallish boy holding a kitten. One of his ickle Slytherins.

"Hey," he said with a smile, taking a few steps toward the boy. "You're Kei, right?"

Kei is looking up at a painting in awe when someone speaks to him, and a small half-smile forms on his face. "Yep, that's me."

He looks much older than Kei does, he notices. Probably at least a fifth year? Nice. He can use a few older friends to help him out around the school.

Sitting in the fourth floor corridor, Stephanie examined the glass terrarium Tim had sent her. Her cousin had written an apology letter for it being so late past Christmas but to consider it an early birthday present. Beaming, Steph flipped through a herbology book about underwater plants. She thought maybe they’d look nicer than regular plants hanging from her ceiling. Obviously her dad would do that handy work for her but still, floating would work in the dorm for now. Pulling out another herbology book, the redhead flipped through it, also considering plants from a greenhouse or growing her own.

Coming down from the Divination Tower with a borrowed-without-permission deck of tarot cards in hand, Derf turned the corner and spotted Stephanie quiet easily. It was a vacant corridor, after all, and he would be really REALLY unobservant to not spot her, you know? "Hi Stephanie!" he chirped, pleased to have found another something to keep his mind preoccupied. For the first time in a LONG while, the third year did not recoil at the sight of what was presently in his friend's hand - recent happenings had made his fear of flora become knocked down a few pegs in terms of things that terrified him. "Whatcha doing?" he asked, assuming it was alright for him to join her and plopping himself down right next to her. "Oooooh, aquatic plants? Dad knows loads about that. He helped take Stubby Purple Coral off the endangered species list. Or...well...it's SOON gonna be off the list he reckons."

Aquatic plants were also the ONE little niche in Herbology that Derf had a somewhat keen interest in. For amphibian and reptile reasons, mostly.

Flipping through the pages of her book, the redhead took down more notes of proper plants to add inside her bowl. Clearly aquatic kind were winning compared to others. Besides, the house plant magazine she had also come across in the library wasn't doing much justice for plants out of water. So obviously a water surviving in just water was the winner. Smiling up at her friend, Steph nodded and passed him the book. "Would he know which would be good house plants in a terrarium? I might want to hang it in my dorm or room back home," Gotta add some decorations to the place. "I've got some of mom's old herbology books but I can't find anything that'll be a good house plant or something,"

Nodding as he accepted the book from her - although he wasn't really sure WHY he was because he was not all that great with plants - he flashed her a bit of an overly confident grin. "Dad and mum are both herbologists, reckon between the two of them they could come up with something," he mused. His mum DID used to teach Herbology here. "But...you know...Marimo are easy and like...practically indestructable." Plus she could be like...setting up her little terrariums for other little living things too, which was ALWAYS a bonus to the blonde. Still...he was going to give this a bit of a more genuine shot and actually was flipping through the book for other options. "Mum fancies water lilies...she has some of those in levitating little terrariums around the house."
