Default Inquisitorial Hall


Unless you're apart of the Inquisitorial Committee, this is the last place you want to find yourself within the castle--shy of the Detention Hall, of course. This is where all matters of student discipline are brought to the attention of the Headmistress and her committee. If you're innocent, you have nothing to worry about. If you're guilty, this is only the beginning. Once all evidence has been reviewed, a final verdict is handed out and carried out shortly after.

There is a long table that sits in the centre of the room. On each of its horizontal sides, there are 4 chairs. To the top of the table sits a much larger chair befitting the Headmistress herself.

A fireplace warms this hall when there are matters being brought forth but when it is empty, the table is bare and the chairs are pulled along the sides to the walls. It would do you well to avoid this room, unless you're left with no choice.

Even though she didn't look it, Analiese was fuming. Why was HeadFrenchLady so angry?! Roses are plants, they grow back! Analiese looked at the others while they were speaking before speaking herself.

"I wasn't thinking.", she said, "It was a defensive reflex. She grabbed Claudine by the neck. That's when me and Bernadette raised our wands. We obviously wouldn't have attacked if we weren't attacked first. Cecelia was only trying to put out the fire, something nobody else thought of doing. She must have lost her aim amongst all the chaos."

She looked back down at her shoes and fell silent again.

Bernie was still distraught --- DISTRAUGHT--- at the thought of her wand being killed, and she herself being even worse, EXPELLED, but she did peek through her hands at Claudine and allowed herself to be led over to the chairs. While the other kids told their side of things, Bernadette tried to wipe her nose on her sleeve as best she could and then tried to suck up the rest of her snot so that she'd be able to speak.

She did one last loud SNURRRRRF inhale of snot, and then looked up at Headman Professor Trent ONLY.

"I'M SORRY, sir," the first year declared shakily, her lip wobbling just slightly. "I'm new here and I was only tying to do what I thought was the right thing. I was trying to defend and h-h-hhelp my friend." By 'new here' Bernie meant both Beauxbatons and she also meant the wizarding world. This was an innocent Muggleborn girl who kept her wand in her boot most of the time; how could she be a serious threat to the Head of this school?!

She tilted her chin up a little more and nodded at Professor Notre Dame. "He didn't w-warn us about those gargoyles, so I think the one thought my W-W-WAND was a chew toy. I don't know what m-my wand did to the guardbird. But that's why it's B-BBROKEEN." And Bernie's blue eyes welled up again. Even though she was VERY pupset, she kind of hoped the animal birdog thing was OK as long as her wand would be OK too. That would be fair.

Her being sent home for this? TOTALLY UNFAIR STILL.

~ Mrs Steve Harrington ~ Friendly Neighbourhood Hufflepuff ~

Her hands, out of sight under the table, balled into fists. Hearing the Headmistress saying that it wasn’t an accident made her blood boil. Claudine hated to be accused of things, especially if she did not commit the act or did not do so on purpose. Instead of saying anything, she chose to remain silent because of the act she was putting on in an attempt to get herself and Bernie out of trouble. Cece and Annalise too… but Bernie was her actual friend.

She did, however, startle when the CoMC professor spoke up. Claudine hadn’t known he was there. There was a sort of wave of relief that went through her when he confirmed that the movement was a complicated one. Surely this would work in the students’ favour?

The other statements about that her would not help her.

“One would have been offered.’’ She may come across cold to others because she hated to socialise but she was not always indifferent to situations around her. “After your Headmistress grabbed me in a hostile way, I only thought of defending myself. Your gargoyles appeared out of nowhere and began attacking us.’’

SNIIIIIFFFFF.

Claudine bobbed her head in support of Cece’s words. “She doesn’t think much of Hogwarts students on the whole. I think that’s what Cece’s trying to say.’’ This Snakette was never afraid to say what was on her mind though in that moment, she wasn’t sure she wanted to say anything more because… Bernie.

The poor Gryffindor.

”I did not grab anyone by ze neck. I took firm ‘old of ze girl’s robe collar. If you ‘ad been paying attention instead of brashly raizing your wand, you ‘ould ‘ave known zat.” Giselle chided the Ravenclaw sharply, not appreciating the lie. “And don’t sink I didn’t realize you slipped off to your common room when you were told to come straight ‘ere. Disobedience iz never tolerated.” Was Malachi listening? She was done doing so. Honestly, the woman didn’t know why she’d allowed the trial to go on as long as she had.

“ ‘ould have apologized. Sought about apologizing. None of zhose are apologies.” This time she looked directly to the Headmaster, ignoring Mathys and his suggestion it was an accident.

“zhey may not ‘ave meant to burn my roziz or drench me, but raising wands iz very deliberate and very inappropriate. I want zhem gone and I won’t say it again. Perhaps not ze two accidents—but I do require apology and zat zhey never enter my roze garden again. Ze ozer two, ze ones wiz ze gall to attack me, zhey are to be out wizin ze hour.”

That was not negotiable.

“Ze say YOU are teaching zem zhis behaviour wiz your “constant vigilance” well perhaps you should ‘ave taught zhem common sense to go along wiz it. Attacking off instinct. Defensive reflex in ze absence of real danger. Zhey clearly have much to learn and I will have zhem disciplined. ‘Ow doez one not know that you do not attempt to threaten or attack a ‘eadmistress? Zat is common sense and zhey lack zat.”

THAT was her verdict.

Yeah I broke that mirror, so what? ll NOT backward ll Official Gryfferin ll Lemon's favourite

When he’d asked for everyone’s story, the man had been hoping that everything would be cleared up and they could all have some tea before taking an early night. What he hadn’t expected was...

....

.......

All that.

Malachi paled noticeably with each new retelling, losing far more colour when they got to the part about raising their wands at the woman. Sweet Circe someone tell him they hadn’t. The woman was only making it up and the kids never really dared.

Except.

They just admitted it. The reasons had the man internally sinking into his chair and banging his head against the table. Outwardly, the man’s reaction was nothing but a few twitches of his fingers every time the story got particularly unbelievable. In truth, he didn’t know where to start. What could he say? Malachi’s mouth fell agape for several seconds while his brain tried to wrangle words. She wanted them out, still, and he supposed he couldn’t blame her.

He’d just....start with the easier stuff. The Headmaster took a steadying breath. “I know you wouldn’t intentionally soak the Headmistress.” He assured Summers. “And I don’t believe you’d go out of your way to scorch Headmistress Desmarais’s roses.” He continued to Blaze. “That said, you did both do those very things and the Headmistress is right; thinking to apologise. Meaning to apologise, they don’t equate to an apology. Not apologizing because you don’t think she thinks much of you won’t make her think any better. In fact, as you’ve seen, it has the opposite effect. Whether your actions were intended or not, they did get executed and warrant an apology. A proper one.” He gestured both girls to face the Headmistress.

He didn’t have to repeat that neither of them was ever to step foot back in the rose garden, yeah? They’d gotten that part clearly? He hoped so.

As for the other two....oh Merlin. The harder two to fix. By the time Malachi faced them, his expression was a mixture of disappointment and fatigue. “Not thinking is not an excuse.” He pointed out to Anderson. Especially if the Headmistress has indeed only grabbed the girl by a piece of clothing and not her actual neck. “I teach you lot constant vigilance, true, but I also tell you to fully assess the situation before acting. New as you are, even you’ve been taught that, Grantham. Stop. Don’t panic. Don’t act first think second. That is what I teach in my lessons.” So, y’know, Giselle could STOP thinking he was leading these kids astray. They should’ve known better. That was not on him for lack of instruction. “Raising your wand at a professor and especially a Headmaster or Headmistress shouldn’t be something you need to be told. What would either of you have done if she had drawn her own wand, inevitably disarmed you with more powerful magic then had you both carted off to the infirmary with nasty scars? If she felt threatened and attacked first, what then? Did either of you stop to think about that?” He doubted it if their actions were anything to go by. Desmarais could really have hurt them and the man was ridiculously relieved that she hadn’t. “It doesn’t sound like Blaze was in any real danger outside of a wrinkled robe. Did either of you think that far ahead?”

Malachi looked to the Headmistress before turning to the second pair of girls again. “You’re not expelled—but” Before the woman could offer protest. “You are suspended. I know neither of you was thinking, but that’s not good enough to excuse that kind of behaviour. It’s the same as if we were back at Hogwarts and I sincerely hope you all try to learn from this. Two weeks. Go pack anything you might need. A carriage will be prepared to take you back to London within the hour and your parents will be notified.”

He turned to Mathys. “Do your gargoyles always go attacking students like that?” Because that also seemed like something that needed addressing.

Relief crashed over Cecelia like a great wave, her punishments for the ACCIDENT far better than she could've hoped. She didn't care about the rose garden, and apologizing was easy when you didn't even MEAN to do something in the first place, so she would live to see another day here at school, and maybe, just maybe, her headmaster wouldn't look down on her forever.

He wouldn't, right?

...

Turning to the headmistress, the small blonde straightened up and tried very hard to hold the woman's gaze. "I'm sorry about getting you all wet." She looked it, too, though she was MORE sorry that her spell hadn't worked the way she wanted. "And I promise not to go in your rose garden anymore. I hope you're able to regrow them. They were beautiful." They were. She meant that, too.

"Sorry for causing any trouble in your class, Professor de Nostredame," She added, turning to look at the man. "I was actually really excited about that lesson." More so BEFORE the gargoyles attacked, but you know. "And I'm sorry for thinking I could help when I'm not so great at spells yet, Headmaster Trent. I really didn't mean to disappoint you.." But she had, and that part bothered her most.

Once she'd said what she needed to, the blonde fell quiet, looking at the others. She was sad for Bernie, especially, because she would have to go home. She really hoped the girl's parents wouldn't be TOO angry with her. She also wanted to hug her, but she stayed put for now.

This was all quickly becoming a lesson in Hogwarts' inability to piece things together, remain calm, and rose great concern over their observational skills. All thoughts which Mathys struggled to keep to himself given all the dramatics flying about - not exclusive to Hogwarts, though his respect for his headmistress remained fully intact.

He remained silent, though his jaw set as time...and time again the Hogwarts students insisted that he had not warned them about the gargoyles. Were their memories so faulty as to have already forgotten what the lecture prior to their arrival had been about? Shape and phase shifting creatures. Had they also forgotten that he had alerted them to the fact that their creature would be arriving soon and that they were of the phase shifting variety? The warning was there and everything would have gone swimmingly were there no wands drawn against his headmistress.

Diligent and dutiful, he remained in silence until the Hogwarts headmaster addressed him directly.

"Ze gargoyles behave like ze matagot, benevolent until provoked and act as security to Beauxbatons," he explained calming and for what felt like the tenth time this evening. "Zey were ze to be ze subject of our lesson. I had just finished explaineeng ze difference between shape and phase shifting creatures, informing ze class zat we would be working with a phase-shifting species ziss evening. Zey, your students, were performing precautionary spellwork to zemselves to prevent injury when ze spell meeshap occurred."

Finding his words to have sufficiently answered the headmaster's inquiry, his attention was drawn to young Mademoiselle Summers. "I understand and your apology iz accepted," he nodded firmly, eyes gentle. "Anothair opportunity will present itself, I assure you, Mademoiselle."

Claudine yearned to hex the HeadCrazyMistress in her face but there were some issues with that: 1. She was still not in possession of her wand and 2. Her ability to cast certain destructive spells were poor. Ugh. Colour her frustrated. Perhaps these setbacks were a great thing because it would spoil their chances of getting off. Instead, she focused on Trent now. Fine, if an apology would help to soothe things over, she would do this. Claudine focused her usually strong gaze on the woman.

“The roses in the garden are always a pretty sight and for that reason, I would never want to destroy them. I apologise for my role in that today. I apologise for… everything else too.’’ She lowered her eyes. For the most part, her words were true. The Rose Garden happened to be a place at Beauxbatons she adored and she was sorry she had harmed some of the roses. The latter statement? One hundred percent empty words. No one needed to know that though. “Professor?’’ Her words were now directed to the CoMC professor. “I’m sorry for any trouble I may get you into for holding the lesson in the Garden.’’ Those were sincere words… even though de Nostredame had seen it fit to give her detention at the start of the year for something that was accidental.

Claudine was jolted to sit up straighter when Trent announced that Bernie was suspended. Analiese too but the Snakette was concerned about Bernie a lot more. “What? But Headmaster-’’ She was lost for words and resorted to making hand gestures which basically consisted of her hands outstretched and her palms facing upwards. It was her way of asking ‘HOW COULD YOU?’

A fine job she was doing of defending her friend.

Okay, but had she REALLY "attacked" zeh Headmistress? Come on. Bernie was a FIRST YEAR with a BROKEN WAND and LIMITED MAGICAL SKILLS to begin with. She was going to cry. She was going to SOB AND CRY like the child she was, especially when she saw Headman Trent looking at her like a DISAPPOINTED DAD.

And um, if she had been attacked, then she'd be the victim here and WOULDN'T have to go home, right? Bernie wiped at her eyes and her runny nose with her sleeve. And then... and then he SUSPENDED HER?!

Bernie's mouth fell open in a mixture of shock, disappointment, and... relief that she wasn't fully expelled forever?! She--- really?! She glanced at Claudine and shook her head a little, as if to signal to her friend to not worry about it. Cece got the same silent signal. She appreciated BOTH her friends SO MUCH right now, but Bernie's parents were Muggles. She would be FINE.... as long as they remembered to pick her up at the station in London...

"FINE," the first year declared, pushing out of her chair with much more force than necessary. It gave a lot scraping sound and she was HOPING it left a BIG BLACK MARK on the floor. "FINE. I'll go pack, SIR." And no, she would NOT be apologizing to ANYONE FRENCH EVER AGAIN. She stood up and paused, glancing back at her broken wand...

....just laying there on the floor.... she scurried over to it and bent down beside it.

"Will you fix it, sir? While I'm gone?" Bernie's eyes were welling up again, but she looked up at Trent in hope of a good answer. "Please?"

Yeah I broke that mirror, so what? ll NOT backward ll Official Gryfferin ll Lemon's favourite

That's...more or less what he thought. Malachi nodded at the Frenchman's words, getting even more of a picture of what had transpired out in the rose garden. No doubt Giselle had gone in screaming, no doubt the students had reacted, no doubt the gargoyles showed up at the wrong time and everything became a bigger mess.

Lovely.

"If there's anything I can do to help with repairs, let me know." He offered to the French pair. A hollow offer in truth. There was no way Giselle would LET him just not help.

There was some relief as the pair of first years apologized though his heart did sink when Summers turned her apology to him. "It's got nothing to do with helping before you're able to use magic. That doesn't disappoint me. It's thinking carefully of the best way to help before diving in." Something she would find most useful should she ever end up in another high tension situation.

"No buts." Enough of all that. No, Blaze. "The verdict won't change, it's already done. What they've done is a serious offense, at any school. Should they not wish to be suspended again, they'll exercise better judgement in the future. It's a learning opportunity, that's what this is. Actions have consequences. That's why everyone is encouraged to think before they act. Now, I won't hear more of this--"

The man's brows rose as Grantham shoved away from the table. For a moment, he worried she'd pitch a fit and make things worse. Thankfully, that wasn't the case. The man carefully levitated the busted wand over to him. "I'll do what I can, I promise. For now, head back to your Common Room. All of you. That's enough for tonight."

He promised he would fix it... so he HAD to fix it now.... Bernie nodded solemnly at the Headman trying her best to blink away her tears and picked herself up again. She led the way to the giant doors out of here, and as tempted as she was to SHOVE them open with a LOUD BANG...

...she didn't. She was too exhausted by the emotional events of the day to keep fighting. She just trodged solemnly up to her dormitory to go pack and cry in private.

Default Zhe trial of zhe century

The room had been extended to house any and all who chose to attend the trial. Extra witness seats had been set out for the students summoned to answer for their crimes, each with their names on it. Her own students had chairs with their names as well with the remaining chairs being for the spectators.

For some, this could very well be their last afternoon at L'Académie de Magie Beauxbâtons. They had best make the most of it.

Giselle took her seat at the very top of the table, waiting for everyone to file in. The Headmistress had given them the hour but had herself arrived early to settle her nerves in any way she could. The ball was ruined, there was no getting past that. The Hogwarts students were to blame. There was no denying that.

Once she got this folly out of the way, she would send them off and rid herself of the stress they'd come with. For now, she would wait impatiently for their arrivals.

OOC: Hello one and all! With the decorations destroyed, the Headmistress is hopping mad and out for blood. You're free to post your students attending the trial. Those who have been incriminated know who they are however that doesn't mean your student can't insist on offering their own witness accounts This is an open RP opportunity while we try to clear Hogwarts's name!

Was he anxious? Absolutely not because he had done NOTHING WRONG! After receiving what can only be described as a massive joke of a letter from the headmistress of this shambolic excuse of a school, Ewan entered the Inquisitorial Hall, head held high, a neutral expression across his face and took the seat which had his name on it.

Whilst taking his seat, he couldn’t help but notice that ‘Zhe Headmonstress’ was waiting for them to turn up. Fixing her with a defiant stare, he waited for others to turn up, his mind coming up with possible answers for this farce of a trial. After all, what kind of person just decides that someone is guilty without actually providing any evidence? Not only was it not fair but it was just ignorant and pig headed! Truth be told, he didn’t really like it here at the start of the year but after this? After basically being told to leave, he didn’t really feel like it now. Funny how that happens.

Kangaroo court. That's what this was. Dalia couldn't see any of her fellow Hogwartians doing such a thing as destroying the decorations. The Headmistress just seemed to have it out for them ever since they'd set foot in this school. And honestly, she was half hoping that the woman just kicked them all out just to be free of all the stress this woman was causing her. The stress of being extra careful just to avoid having to deal with her.

She found herself a seat in the audience, totally looking anywhere else but at Desmarais.

After all, what kind of person just decides that someone is guilty without actually providing any evidence? Not only was it not fair but it was just ignorant and pig headed! Truth be told, he didn’t really like it here at the start of the year but after this? After basically being told to leave, he didn’t really feel like it now. Funny how that happens.
This was honestly the most ridiculous trial of the century. Which was a shame, considering the new century had just barely begun, but if that's what the 2100s were going to live up to be, then so be it. Carsyn hadn't actually seen the damage in the arena, but she had heard of the aftermath and she knew one thing was for certain: NO Hogwarts student would have seriously spoiled chances for the valentine's ball that they were all looking forward to. Except maybe that one kid who always seemed up to know good, but even him. No, no Hogwarts kid would do this. Sure we had our share of hooligans and trials and tribulations, but as a whole, the Hogwarts students were innocent in this. Just as they were innocent in the feathered incident at the rose gardens.

"Ridonkulus." Carsyn muttered under her breath to Ewan, as she took a seat beside him. She wasn't an eyewitness for this event, but she was an eyewitness to know her fellow Hogwartians were innocent. Period. End of discussion. No logic needed.

Thomas Marvolo Riddle | | Lord Voldemort is a ham

Summoned? Summoned?

He had to admit, when he first received the note he had gone very pale and started to panic. Grave crime. Solid evidence. Incrimination. Kaiser had done a not-insignificant-number of things in his life that those words could be referring to, so his initial thought was that his ghosts had come back to haunt him. It wasn't until he'd had a moment to stop and drag himself out of the overthinking spiral that he realised that this was unlikely to be anything to do with that. Not least because... well... it would hardly had been dealt with by the Beauxbatons headmistress. And apparently the Beauxbatons kids had 'seen him doing it', so... no. It had to be something else.

But Kaiser was lost on what sort grave crime had been committed, and especially on what kind of solid evidence there was, given he couldn't actually recall doing anything that fit the description. Then again, this was Desmarais, who could very well consider climbing the building or dipping out of school on occasion to be a 'grave crime'.

Well. Whatever. Whatever it was, Kaiser was here. Not in the best of moods, as it happened, which was probably going to reflect wonderfully on him, but present all the same. He stepped into the Hall, and glanced around, confusion and irritation clear on his face.

"What is going on?" he asked the other Hogwarts students who were already present, quite deliberately not looking towards Desmarais. "What is this 'grave crime'?" He went to take up the first seat he came to when... oh... that one had his name on it? Well... Kaiser supposed he'd be sitting there then.

It took everything he could muster to keep the smirk of amusement off of his lips, but he couldn't keep the swagger out of his step as he confidentally made his way into the inquisitorial hall. This was hilarious, and the looks on the Hogwarts kids' faces were a picture.

Of course, he had enjoyed having all the girls arguing amongst themselves over who would be attending with him but Luc wasn't too fussed about the ruined decorations, and consequently, the lack of soirée.

He dipped his head respectfully in the direction of his Headmistress before smoothing his uniform jacket and taking a seat at the position which bore his name.

This was NOT the type of summoning Cecelia had been expecting when she started her magical education and NOW because of some letter IN which she was called a MEAN name AND accused of a GRAVE crime, she had to go to the inquisitorial hall for the SECOND time in her very FIRST year at a magical school.

She was just so, so confused.

Also SO annoyed.

AL-SO she was PRETTY sure that the headmistress just plain old didn't like her, 'cause the ONLY thing that bothered her about the last ordeal was that she hadn't said she was sorry in a timely enough manner, which PROVED the woman KNEW she didn't mean to do anything wrong. She was just trying to LEARN. Instead she was being PICKED ON by some rose obsessed older lady who probably only HAD the roses as friends 'cause who ELSE would wanna be nice to HER? Certainly not Cecelia.

The first year took care to make sure she was presentable and then she headed to the hall, arms crossed and lacking the usual bright smile that was known to accompany her wherever she went. She wasn't happy today and she WASN'T apologizing for anything. She hadn't DONE anything and she WOULD NOT be bullied into saying she had by some french kids who looked like evil villains in some cartoon film.

HMPH!

Luckily, the fact that her labeled seat was next to Kaiser's gave her some small comfort and she tried to look brave as she settled next to him even though her stomach was twisted into uncomfortable knots. She didn't like this place. She wanted to go home. Anywhere would be better than here.

Bernadette had been so SHOCKED at the arrival of a note from the French Headmistress that she had nearly FAINTED when she'd read it. This NEW ACCUSATION was COMPLETELY unfounded and, in addition, it was vague. She knew the woman didn't like her, of course, because of the Gargoyle Incident of '99, but this first year had been COMPLETELY reformed since then. She had even taken DANCING LESSONS in preparation of this ball; DANCING LESSONS that had resulted in her getting BLOOD on her sparkly, shiny DRESS. Was that a crime? Was THAT what this was about? Had Blake bled all over the Headmistress' floor or carpets or something, and it hadn't come out? WHAT CRIME besides attempting to steal candy on the train, possibly leaving an oven on in the student bakery, making an apple explode in Charms class, creating an illegal map of Beauxbatons, pointing her wand at the Headmistress, harming the mouth of a gargoyle, offering to teach Muggle Studies, accusing a professor of stealing cookies, and smuggling in said cookies and sugary treats COULD SHE HAVE COMMITTED?!

Tell her, PLEASE! She had already been suspended for STUPID CIRCUMSTANCES once. What could they do now? Expel her from the stupid French school WHERE SHE WASN'T EVEN ENROLLED?!??!? She was just living here until Hogwarts was all better, OK?!?!!?

The first year stomped over to the seat with HER name on it and sat down forcefully, with her arms crossed and her THREATENING WAND out. It was clutched securely in her fist, however, and was only pointed at the ceiling. YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN, DEMAHAAAY.

'A grave crime 'az been committed and zhere 'az been solid evidence incriminating you.'

HELLO INTERNAL SCREAMING.

He had been summoned. SUMMONED. HIM! Someone thought HE, Lucas Dakest, was a DELINQUENT. It was enough to cause him to start panicking immediately. What did he even do?! Was this because he didn't reach all the words in that essay that one time? Or because he was far too uncomfortable with the idea of dancing with a girl and not willing to say why? Whatever it was, it was enough to cause him to spend a significant amount of time overthinking.

But wait, what did he do?

On his way to the Inquisitorial Hall, the Gryffindor unravelled the letter and read it again. He knew what it said by now, could even recite it if he wanted to, but there was something....... hmm. This sounded serious - which was only causing him to panic even more - but the letter didn't say WHAT he did. Even he didn't know what he did. And it was important enough to be remembered by some of the Beauxbatons lot?

Uhh??? They remembered him?! They remembered something he did?!

Yeah, he thought it sounded weird as well.

He scrunched up the letter again and dumped it into his pocket just in time to walk into the Inquisitorial Hall and-

.......... oh. Oh Merlin. Would you LOOK at this room?

There was something about this room that made the situation seem a LOT scarier. It was enough to make his palms sweatier and that familiar feeling of air being sucked out of the room he was in. And was that a chair? A chair with his NAME on it?!

Don't cry don't cry don't cry.

Shuffling over to the seat, he slowly sat down and tried to look as, uh, presentable as he can. Given the circumstances. His heart started to thump wildly - only really coupled with the steady stream of internal aaagggGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH! - as he looked around the room. Could he leave? He wanted to leave.

Actually, he wanted Emma.

Yeah I broke that mirror, so what? ll NOT backward ll Official Gryfferin ll Lemon's favourite

To be perfectly honest, when he’d suggested they have a trial, it was in the hopes she would realize there wasn’t enough evidence to convict anyone and drop it before it got too far. It wasn’t to say he was surprised she went and called a trial anyway but rather that he’d been hoping she wouldn’t.

His kids didn’t do this. Somewhere deep down, he was sure even she knew that and yet....here he was walking into the Inquisitorial Hall again.

The Headmaster looked around at the faces already present. “You’ve got to be kidding me.” The man muttered well below his breath to ensure he wasn’t heard by anyone. It was all he could do because in what century was Dakest a suspect to a “grave crime”? The kid could barely pull himself together during simulated defense classes. Why would he risk the real wrath of such a disagreeable woman?

There were others he found equally unlikely. Precious bean #3 and Rainbow Truffles among them but rather than state the obvious, the man sank into his seat by the Headmistress. He’d wait to see their “evidence”. Malachi had no doubt that resisting would only be interpreted as guilt and a cover up. “Rose, that seat is reserved. Please take an empty one among the spectators.” He instructed the Gryffindor before Desmarais had the chance to notice and get loud. Why she chose to sit in a seat that had someone else’s name on it was beyond him and not at all helpful in trying to prove they weren’t the unruly and disobedient horde the Headmistress thought then to be.

Could they just get this over with?

....I know what you 'ave done. My students say zhey have seen you doing it. Zhis is only a formality for zhe sake of your 'eadmaster.

...............

There was something worse than the Beauxbatons headmistress' shill voice in person, as it turns out. Hearing it over and over again in your head was a private hell that had the fifth year hoping that this trial resulted in all of Hogwarts being removed from this school. It was abundantly apparent that this was not going to be a fair trial and that woman's decision already made up, so he wished they would just skip over this formality and not waste everyone's time. Nothing anyone said would change that woman's perspective. Not unless they brought her a new suspect and he had not had the opportunity to even begin to look for one.

But he was still convinced that these Beauxbatons students where only using Hogwarts as a cover up. They HAD to know the truth and with how much the headmistress took their word as law...something just did not add up to this being retaliation for having to share their school for the year.

Or maybe there really were people more petty and salty than he with FAR too much time on their hands. His judge and jury were still out on that one.

Eiji had wanted to mirror his grandfather about this, not to complain and whine (because grandpa Charles was embarrassing when worked up) but to ask etiquette and courtroom procedures of the Wizengamot. Something he and Missa should have asked about during their tour. Too bad they had been preoccupied with pensieve thoughts instead.

Sighing as he stepped inside, Eiji tightened his tie a bit and headed over to the seats intended for the 'defendants' and sat down - at least Missa was seated beside him, but it made him suddenly wonder if that was a set up too. He was trying his best not to let the scowl on his face take over...but one look at Vayssičre and all intention went right out the window.

Especially when he saw Cecilia among those being accused.

What a piping hot load of dragon dung.

Rose, that seat is reserved. Please take an empty one among the spectators

Wait. What? Carsyn blinked and looked around at her seat to find someone else's name there. How had she not noticed that? Wait, did that mean, Ewan was one of the ones being accused? But that didn't make sense at all? He wasn't one that the fourth year pegged for being shifty. Unlike that French boy who looked way too smug about all this, with his overgroomed hair. With that face. With that... smile. That ego. That. Everything.

Also, somehow she felt grateful that her and Nora's writings hadn't been found out about yet since she was sure it would not be approved. And yet this trial was definitely going into their informal book about Beauxbatons. Even if it was to accuse Hogwarts kids. It would certainly depict a different nature of the Beauxbatons Headmistress.

Reaching to pat Ewan's hand in good luck, the fourth year quietly stood up and moved to sit behind him. That row was empty chairs, so that meant she'd be able to watch and object observe to all of this.

WAIT. WHAT? LUCAS DAKEST .... had a letter?? UH. Yea, this was definitely a bunch of hocus pocus which had Carsyn itching to read the letter. She'd nudge him later for a copy because that definitely need to go into the Beauxbatons book.

What did one wear to a TRIAL? It had taken Phoebe a while to decide what look she wanted to wear to convince everyone that she took this very seriously and was completely innocent. Eventually, she decided to dress as officially as possible. Like a proper barrister, in fact - a long black robe with a white collar and with her hair powdered white (since she couldn't find a wig).

Phoebe curtsied to the Headmaster THEN to the HeadFrenchlady, her face all solemn. "Good day, sir. Bonjour, Madame." She wanted to squeeeeeeeze Cece and Kaiser and Eiji and tell them it was going to be OKAY, but she didn't. She wasn't going to do ANYTHING to embarrass the Headmaster. Instead, she sat down and sneezed violently at the powder in her hair.

Analiese slipped in through the doors of the Inquisitorial Hall and sat down in one of the audience seats. She wasn't among those summoned, so she didn't have to be shouted at by Desmarais in the Inquisitorial Hall twice. She looked slightly confused with some of the people summoned. There was certainly something fishy going on here. The Hogwarts students can't have done anything: the fire in the kitchens couldn't be them because where was the proof; the trashing of the Ombrelune Common Room and the Observatory couldn't be them because where was the proof; and the destruction of the ballroom couldn't be them because WHERE. WAS. THE. PROOF.

At least she wasn't accused of anything. She just wanted to watch. She felt sorry for the people summoned, most of them - if not all - probably didn't even do anything. And that Beauxbatons students; don't even get her started on them. Accusing Hogwarts students because "zhey were zhe only ones zhere"; that was one of the stupidest arguments she had heard.
