Ravenclaw Ravenclaw Common Room



At the top of a tall, winding staircase you will find yourself greeted by the enchanted, bronze knocker’s riddle. Once you answer it correctly, the door to the Ravenclaw common room will open, revealing a wide, circular room with arched windows along each wall. Decorating the many windows are long, blue and bronze silks that compliment the midnight blue carpet covered in stars. If you look up, you’ll see the domed ceiling reflecting this starry carpet (look carefully enough and you may even see a twinkle or two).

The Ravenclaw common room is one of the airiest rooms in Hogwarts, but the fresh air is nothing compared to the incredible view from the windows of the tower. Take a look outside and you’ll see the best view of Hogwarts! Our tower overlooks the school grounds: the lake, the Forbidden Forest, the Quiddich pitch, the herbology gardens, and the beautiful Scottish mountains. And in the evening, you’re met with a view of the beautiful night sky.

The room is furnished with tables, chairs, and bookcases, if you’re in need of a place to study. If you’re looking for a place to relax, the most comfortable sofas and armchairs are facing the inviting fireplace. There’s never a shortage of natural light shining through the windows, but there are also several lamps on all of the various tables. The dormitories are in turrets off the main tower, and by the door leading up to them, there stands a tall, marble statue of Rowena Ravenclaw.

While the tower itself holds an air of sophistication, it is simultaneously quite inviting and warm. So, welcome in! Make yourself at home.

Default Cleaning extravaganza begins hereeeee ~~ !!
doesn't proofread tweets | #wrongaboutcereal | emo to the extremo |#HouseNATARIANA

Okay, so yeah, they were having a cleaning party. But it wasn't like other cleaning parties. It was a ~cool~ cleaning party.

Only ~COOL~ cleaning parties had a speaker playing fun bops (that were practically prehistoric as they dated back to when Finneas was a mere Hogwartian himself, but that's because SURELY cool kids still listened to the same jams years and years later... right!?). And only ~COOL~ parties had a table of snacks to help quench the hunger brought on by all your hard work!!! And only ~COOL~ parties involved Quidditch-hoop-looking rubbish bins and a large supply of cleaning products!!

In fact, Professor Schmoe was SO proud of the ~COOLNESS~ that he was standing directly in the center of the Common Room with hands placed awkwardly on his hips, awaiting the arrival of all the Ravenclaws newly sorted and otherwise. Once everyone had gathered in the space, he cleared his throat. Whew. Almost hacked a loogie by accident! Whew! Close one. "Hello Ravenclaws, Welcome home!" Finneas awkwardly raised a hand to mess with his hair, but decided against it in a last minute change of heart and instead... just... patted his own head in compromise.

"We uh..." He looked around with his beady eyes at the Common Room that was practically swimming in all sorts of grime, dust, and abandoned scraps of various ... things. "Have a lot of work to do... But the better we work together, the err faster we can get this place cleaned and err the sooner it'll start feeling like a true home." He offered them a nervous smile, having seen a large dust bunny float right by him as he spoke. "We need to err dust surfaces... Clean windows... Sweep... Mop..... Errr... Deep clean anything and also... everything." Uh. Welcome back? "But! It will be fun! Cleaning is fun!"

..... He looked to his prefects. Did they errrr have any words of encouragement? Because... Now would be the time to share them.

Turning now as the sound of a welcome, Ewan was standing across from his new head of house, Professor Schmoe and as he talked, Ewan couldn’t help but get distracted throughout the speech somewhat which wasn’t usually like him. It could well have been the curly hair atop his head, the way he stood with his hands on his hips or the way something got stuck in his throat before he talked that made him stop and consider how this man had actually been made his head of house but it was not. It was more to do with the way her said ‘err’ every few seconds as he addressed the students.

Half coughing from the dust, half chuckling at his new head of house, all 6ft2 of Ewan walked towards Professor Schmoe with a friendly expression on his face. “Sure thing Professor, where would you like us to start? Maybe we could split off into groups and tackle an area together?” that way, at least they could chat with friends and clean at the same time. Despite not minding this task himself, he knew full well that there were others here who would not take kindly to this. Having spent most of his summer cleaning up after various farm animals, this was nothing for him really. When you’ve been elbow deep in animal faecal matter, a little dust was practically a godsend.

Turning to face some of the students in the common room now, Ewan looked for anyone who wanted to volunteer to join him.

*sappysapper* MAJNOO, YO!

Hogwarts was a mess - of the literal kind. But you know what? Missa preferred it a hundred times more than anything Beauxbatons had to offer. Thus also proved you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. HAH.

But while she was THRILLED to be back, and completely accepted Hogwarts for whatever state it was in - she wasn't entirely thrilled about this cleaning party. Because couldn't magic fix this and they could just all go to sleep? SHE NEEDED TO BE IN HER DORM BED.

BUT she was a prefect now - and Gunnar's speech was still very much a thing in her head and professor Schmoe's face clearly indicated that he could do with all the enthusiastic help he could get right now. Hence the brunette SMILED and nodded along as he spoke. Fake it till you make it, right?

"Professor Schmoe is right. Besides, how can we possibly SLEEP in this mess? Also - it really isn't fair on the elves to do all this alone, yeah?" Missa chimed in, faking as much excitement as possible. Hopefully the music and the snacks and the rubbish bin fun should help too?

Grabbing one of the brooms, the Ravenclaw prefect tried making an example out of this really really fun cleaning party and decided to join Ewan. "Alright, lets do this" she said as she BEGAN sweeping and nudged him along to move.

Well what would you know, the next person to talk was his fellow prefect. It was almost like this was expected of them, like they had a job to do or something. Who knew… Allowing himself to be nudged along, picking up a sweeping brush as he went, he joined Missa and started to sweep, a small smile on his face. Sure, sometimes he could be serious but there were times when the tall Ravenclaw just couldn’t keep a straight face and this was just one of those times.

Dancing to the beat in a joking manner, he swept the dust into various piles as he moved from place to another, using the brush as a prop for his dance moves as he went from time to time. In all fairness, the music in the room really wasn’t that bad. It had that retro feel to it. The kind that was cool without trying to be. Effortless. Something which his new head of house obviously didn’t plan but could learn from.

“How was your summer anyway Missa? Get up to anything fun?” the crinkles on his face on show now as he grinned, calling to her over the music whilst still dancing. It was strange how despite being in the same year as Missa and in the same house, he honestly didn’t know her that well. School could be funny like that sometimes. You see someone three or four times a day and yet you still know very little about them. It was a bit of a shame when you thought about it. Not letting this dampen his mood, he continued to throw some 'siiiiick shapes’, as Professor Schmoe would no doubt call it, his eyes on the look out for some keen student helpers. Who say’s the prefects had to have all the ‘fun’?

Well.

Drewett should have expected it, to be honest. They had left the castle unattended for over a year. It wasn't like it would have been kept clean all those time. The seventh year made a bit of a cringed face as his green eyes took in the overall despair that excuded from this once beautiful tower. Not that it wasn't beautiful now. The bookshelves and the couches were still there. Their view of the Hogwarts grounds remained. Everything was left exactly the way it had been, but only...grimier. While Drewett could feel his body wanting to lay in bed already, he didn't feel comfortable sleeping in cobwebs and dust.

"Good evening, Professor Schmoe," the seventh year greeted his new head of house with a little smile. Missa and Ewan got smiles from him as well.Drewett was fighting a sneeze there, so he casually rubbed his nose. That was his sign to start cleaning. For sure. He wasn't one to complain.

Drewett briefly considered the use of traditional cleaning products, and sighed. He had a few cleaning charms up his sleeve. The ones he used at home. But, unfortunately, they weren't able to use magic in this case. The Ravenclaw had questions about that, actually, but he didn't want to bother. Like the good boy that he was, Drewett took a clean (but not for long) cloth and began wiping it on the window closest to him.

......Nasty.

Chloe was never one to complain nor did she ever expect a house elf to do work for her, but honestly did the elves not come back over the summer? Why was this place so bad still and now they had to clean it? She just looked around and tried not to fully show the grossness her thoughts were making.

Not only was the place a mess, but what was he playing? She thought maybe her parents listened to it, but he did know they didn't, right? She tried to smile through and make due with what they had. "I can sweep." grabbing one of the brooms she started. It seemed to be one of the easier jobs and she was pretty good with a broom.

Giving her friends a smile and wave she continued sweeping. "Professor, was your office this bad when you got here?"

Finneas was very worried there would be protesting, not gonna lie. So to see his new Prefects doing such an exemplary job at encouraging students was HIGHLy promising. Schmoe was HAPPY. Well, as happy as one could be when they were trying not to get more dust up in their throat, y'know? You win some you lose some.

AnYwAy!!!!!!!!

Finneas wouldn't stand idly either, he planned to help too. As they say, the more the merrier!!! And also, he was growing rather antsy standing still. His fidget spinner was left behind in his office. It was a shame that this blazer did not have more pockets. He still reached for them anyway, as if they existed. Only to be met by sweet, horrid disappointment each time.

"Hm?" He blinked a few times, looking over at Ewan as if processing the question on a backlog. "Excellent thought, divide and conquer is admirable strategy." He chuckled awkwardly, but he did mean his words. Splitting into groups sounded to be a good idea as any. And it was why Schmoe would likely start with windows.

With a plan of action made, Schmoe went to find a washrag in the pile of supplies, only to be met by one Chloe McCarthy. She was always a pleasure to speak with. So chipper and friendly. It made him uncomfortable in the best way. Better than those who did nothing but frown. Those ones gave him the worst kind of heebee jeebees. Ask Odaline, she was a pro.

He chuckled awkwardly, fiddling with the rag in his hands. "I am afraid so," he replied bobbing his head. Honestly? HoNeStLy? His office was still pretty bad. It was like everything was covered in nine layer dip. Except instead of guacamole and sour cream, all nine layers were dust. "The er... The whole castle is in need of a deep clean." Ha ha ha. Yeah. It was bad.

The entire state of the castle was... disconcerting, to say the least, and Teddy had tried to be super polite and not rock the boat and not question authority. That wasn't in his nature, but now, standing in what was THE Ravenclaw common room where significant role models in his life had grown up and shared memories... and seeing it... in such disarray... and what was presently being asked of them...

Teddy was confused.

Leaving Tavie's side for the first time since the feast, the twelve-year-old timidly crossed over to stand beside Schmoe, not saying anything until the man made eye contact. "Hello, sir?" He meant for it to come out as a greeting, but it became a question as he lowered his voice, beckoning with a hand for the professor to lean a little closer so he wouldn't have to speak so loudly to keep everyone from overhearing.

"I was wondering - sorry, err, congratulations on the new position, we're lucky to have you -" What sounded like an afterthought was genuine, although the contortion of Teddy's face played no role in conveying that. "I know that you're, err, the Muggle Studies professor and all, but couldn't this... maybe be an opportunity to introduce the first years to the wonders of magic? I mean -" He gestured toward the rubbish bins and cleaning products. "This could be a teachable moment, right? Teach a few cleaning spells? It could be, erm, a... group bonding kind of thing, Ravenclaws love to learn and teach others what they already know, and maybe it could be more fun for us all to sort of paint it as that kind of activity. That's in our nature."

Teddy didn't know Schmoe's prior experiences with Ravenclaws and how much he really understood them, but he had the purest intentions of helping him make a good first impression with his new title, truly.

This was not fun. Not at all. The music wasn't helping matters either, but Missa was trying. She smiled at Ewan as he too began sweeping. Ugh, this was just too much smiling for no reason.

"My summer? It was ... busy. I had that ministry's internship, then weekends were reserved for family, and friends." she told him, sweeping the dust into a neat little pile.

"How was yours?" she asked, chuckling softly at his MOVES at the song.

This was just ..... she didn't even know.

When Drew and Chloe showed up, the brunette SMILED at the two too. Her jaw would soon hurt. She knew it. Picking up a few crumpled paper on the ground, she balled them up together before aiming for the bins, "INCOMING!" she called out at Drew before tossing the ball OVER his head and into one the bins.

Finneas was quite content with his little rag and the lovely music. With all the hard work, things were already starting to look much better! Sort of. But they didn't have to get the place into perfect shape by the end of the night, so it was FINE. Just as long as they made the Common Room look, errrrrrrrrrr... more? ....... Liveable. That's all he asked. That's all Trent asked too, hopefully because Finneas liked to get into bed by 11 PM latest.

He did put a pause on thoughts of sleep, however, when Teddy walked over. Hm? He looked at the boy with beady eyes (okay, look, his eyes were always beady that's just how things were). "Hello, Teddy?" He wasn't sure whether or not he ought to be concerned. But he was always a little concerned. Especially right now on his first night as Head of House. Had something already gone wrong? .... Aside from.... Y'know. The obvious disarray.

He did then pick up on the gesture (a miracle!) and leaned in to listen to the second year. Schmoe nodded his head humming at appropriate times and smiling all the while in that strange way he did when he was proud. "I errr think that's a brilliant idea, Teddy," an excellent idea, really. Though Finneas preferred cleaning without the use of magic as it somehow felt more thorough. If others wanted to use magic, however, he would not be one to deter them! Especially if it could be used as a TEACHABLE MOMENT!!! Er. The only real concern was the errr... Chance that some of the magical balance of the castle was off due to the whole abandonment thing. Surely that was not the case however, and if it was it would probably be fine. Finneas was sure of it.

AnYwAy, anyway, ANYWAY.

"Perhaps you ought to take the lead." It was his idea after all and the first years were far more likely to listen to someone their own age. Maybe.

"Perhaps you ought to take the lead." It was his idea after all and the first years were far more likely to listen to someone their own age. Maybe.
...What? Him? Teddy's rosy complexion darkened at the harrowing suggestion and he scanned the vicinity to see if anyone had just overheard. Schmoe meant well, Teddy thought, but it was, perhaps, a naive suggestion. The boy knew in his heart of hearts that he was meant for the behind-the-scenes kind of stuff. He was certainly not fit to lead any kind of activity in front of all the peers in his house, the new and old ones alike. He couldn't be a leader, didn't the man know? The bigger kids would be watching him - judging him, maybe, on how well he instructed the youngest kids, and Teddy was just gonna... nope. Nope on outta here.

"Oh, no thank you, sir." That was all the professor got out of him before he tried to seamlessly blend back into the crowd and rejoin Tavie.

He would just, you know, do the magic on his own. Mind his own business, or maybe let Schmoe pick someone more capable and with better leadership qualities than him to lead such an activity. Tavie could do it. She was fun and amiable and real leadership material.

Despite the cleaning not being the most fun he’d ever done; he was trying his best to make it as much fun as possible. Picking up rubbish and throwing it through the Quidditch hoops and watching it vanish into the bins, only stopping to laugh at Missa’s cross common room shot into the bins. “That sound’s pretty busy. How was the internship? I would have done it but I was in Canada”. Sure, he may have missed the internship which would have been pretty cool but he didn’t feel like he’d missed out on too much. Honestly, living in Canada was amazing and looking after the animals there was just way too much fun.

“Mine was pretty busy too but like, fun busy, I guess. I just helped out on the farm back home in Canada and then had friends visit too which was cool” his eyes now looking around the room at all of the other Ravenclaw’s helping to clean. Giving a small wave in the direction of Chloe and Teddy as he continued to dance to the music. Sure, no one else was dancing but this Ravenclaw did not care one bit.

Oh, she instantly felt back for the professors, if they had come back to such a mess in their offices and classes. How much work was upon them had to be disastours. "Truly sorry to hear that sir. The poor, poor house-elves trying to keep up. It must be rough for them too." SHe continued to sweep in the corner she started but listening to everyone around her. Missa had gotten a smile and so had Ewan.

When Ewan had brought up his summer she couldn't help but fully grin and look up at him. "Canada is very pretty Louie." Seeing him dancing she decided to join with her broom.

She could sweep and dance at the same time, right?

Avalon had grabbed a mop and was following behind Chloe, only going over the areas of the floor that had been cleared of debris first. There was nothing worse than wet dust that stuck to the mop. Thankfully, she didn't mind the fact that they needed to clean up a bit. Her mother made her and her siblings tidy up the Sinclair household without using magic pretty frequently. As long as she didn't have to scrub toilets. She would draw the line there.

"Anybody do anything awesome this summer?" she asked to no one in particular, dipping the mop back in the bucket of soapy water. Perhaps someone had done something exciting. Besides a brief trip to New York City to visit her brother, her time off of school was pretty mundane. "What about you, Professor Schmoe? Did you have a good holiday?"

Nettie was usually a pretty clean person, so all this dust was really...agitating her. The sooner they got down to work, the sooner this castle would be clean and back to normal, so she had sort of just...snuck into the cleaning party. She wanted to get to work, and there would be plenty of time to socialize later!

She had grabbed a rag and begun dusting as soon as Schmoe had released them to start cleaning, smiling to herself and watching her fellow Ravenclaws as they socialized. It was a bit odd, she knew, just sitting back and observing them all but she just felt so...at PEACE now that they were back. In their OWN common room. Not one that they had to share with the stupid Ombrelune students. It was...extremely peaceful for her.

She smiled and continued her dusting, chuckling a little at Ewan and Chloe as they danced with their cleaning supplies. "I did the internship too. Accidents and Catastrophes. Drew was there too!" she added, smiling at the older Ravenclaw who had also joined the cleaning party.

He was certainly not fit to lead any kind of activity in front of all the peers in his house, the new and old ones alike. He couldn't be a leader, didn't the man know? The bigger kids would be watching him - judging him, maybe, on how well he instructed the youngest kids, and Teddy was just gonna... nope. Nope on outta here.

"Oh, no thank you, sir." That was all the professor got out of him before he tried to seamlessly blend back into the crowd and rejoin Tavie.

He would just, you know, do the magic on his own. Mind his own business, or maybe let Schmoe pick someone more capable and with better leadership qualities than him to lead such an activity. Tavie could do it. She was fun and amiable and real leadership material.

Finneas smiled in a way that wasn't entirely natural. Not because he didn't want to be smiling, but because his natural resting face looked confused and he was very much trying not to look that way. Because people didn't take confused people very seriously, and Finneas did want to be taken seriously in this role. And this had absolutely nothing to do with finding redemption in the fact that his yearbook superlative was for 'class clown'! AnYwAy anyway ANYWAY. Finneas looked down at the boy, trying to figure out what was going on in that little head of his with no avail.

He......... Did not expect what happened next.

In fact, it took him a few blinks. And a long "errrrrr...." before he realized what had just happened as Teddy just vanished away. Well. This was. Not ideal. He would have to talk to Teddy later perhaps because clearly there was something going on. Though maybe he wasn't the right guy to encourage it all. Finneas was.... confused. Which was unfortunate as he was trying not to look confused, remember!?!?!

"The poor elves," he agreed, with a sad sort of nod. Err.... What were you supposed to do with your arms when you were having a conversation. Arms were so weird. Arms. What a thing to possess. But back to the elves. The poor elves. "I had errr considered putting together a group... a er.... sanitation squad, if you will... To help them out with some of the cleaning." But with all the work he had piled up already this term, he wasn't sure he could pursue such an undertaking on his own. Schmoes were busy people.

Finneas was very appreciative of those who were doing their best to make cleaning a good time. He didn't fancy cleaning very much. Could only imagine how much the kidderoos despised this. In place of a start of the term party too. Ah, to be young and party. What a time. Not that Finneas ever attended any parties, he had far too much to read... And far too little friends to invite him. But that was neither here nor there. "Oh," he smiled a goofy little smile that reached the corners of his face when Avalon asked the question about his holiday. "Good, yes," so goofy was his smile. "Very good holiday," he mused bobbing his head up and down.

Though anytime spent with his girlfriend was good. Very good. Supherb, even! This summer she had been hired for a few photoshoots in Italy and Greece, which was very nice because it meant Finneas could go to Italy and Greece. They had great pizza. He quite enjoyed pizza. Gluten free crust, of course. That was important. And errrrrr. "How was your holiday?" he finally asked back in response.

Drewett never really cared getting his hands dirty, but the wreck that was Hogwarts was something. With a single wipe of the glass window, the seventh year's nose scrunched. They were going to need more cloths to work through this mess. He was careful with his cleaning, opting to use every clean inch of the cloth he had.

When he heard Missa telling him that there was something incoming, the seventh year looked up in a burst of panic, saw the balled up paper soaring through the room, and ducked. His arms were over his head at that too. Eyes emoji. "I'm good! All safe," Drewett exclaimed. No paper smacking his face or anything.

And then he heard Nettie mention his name. He smiled at her and gave her a little wave. "Yes, hi, that's me. I'm Drew." As if nobody in the room knew that. Except the first years. Anyway. Yes. Carry on. Nothing to see here. Back to wiping the windows, yes.

She was glad he agreed with her about the elves. Moving to another spot to sweep she listened to him as he said about a cleaning group and something Gunnar and she talked about jumped into her mind.

"Professor I think that is a great idea and if I could I would love to help you in any way I can. I could help lead it or something." If she was on a cleaning committee and there was actually a committee formed maybe it would be easier to bring up cleaning the pitch. If she could get the committee to do the castle and get it done super clean and quick maybe just maybe the headmaster would let them work outside. Outside is the pitch and then maybe just maybe she could at least fly out there if nothing else.

"You could be the head professor for it. I know I'm just a sixth year, but I also know I could handle leading this. I'd be really good at it too. We could start on the seventh floor and work our way down." This was actually getting her hopeful and excited.
