Default The Field Trip to the Dragon Reserve



Hidden in the higher mountains of Wales, Unplottable and rumoured to be located somewhere within Snowdonia, lies the Welsh Dragon Reserve. Established centuries ago, this reserve is home to the native Common Welsh Green; however, over the years other other breeds of dragons (such as the Hebridean Black, Peruvian Vipertooth, Norwegian Ridgeback, Swedish Short-Snout, Romanian Longhorn, and Chinese Fireball) have been added to the reserve for training and research purposes as well as the safe-keeping of these dangerous beasts.

Dragons roam freely within a valley, which has magically drawn perimeters, containing a wooded forest, grassy plains, and numerous streams. There is a well-worn path that dragonologists use to make their way around the reserve, which begins and ends at the base of a snowcapped mountain. Some of the smarter dragons like to linger around this area as the feral goats trekking on the lower ranges make for an easy meal.

A large and deep cave can be found up alongside the mountain, which is where many dragons like to brumate during the winter months. The cave also doubles up as the training and research facility used by the dragonologists that work at the reserve. University students who aspire to work with dragons are encouraged to visit the reserve, where they can observe under the supervision of an employed dragonologist.


-------- Friday, January 11, 2104 --------
-------- continued from THIS CLASS LESSON --------


The students arriving from Hogwarts via portkey landed near the dragonologist base of operations, right off the well-worn path. Their arrival was not announced nor expected, per the strict NO COMMUNICATION rules that were currently in place at the School. Some students may even have had parents, friends, relatives, or acquaintances already working at the reserve or visiting by coincidence on this day. Some students, on arrival, may have viewed this day as an opportunity to cause chaos for the rest of the world (after all, dragons are... very large, and do deserve to be free). Others may have seized the opportunity of this trip outside of the school boundaries as a chance to take back the freedom the Neo-Alliance has been limiting all school year.

Well well well, and welcome, Hogwarts Students. Welcome to your new playground?



OOC NOTE from 6:30 PM EST on 21 FEB. 2021: This thread will be closing to students in the next 24 hours, so please grab a portkey and get back to the School.

Default Kinsay, Andrei and a brief mention of the stunned Nem

Despite the shouting and screaming, she couldn’t help but gaze in wonder at the creatures around her. They were simply…chaotic and yet magnificent. If only that man hadn’t whistled for the baby fireball away. Never mind, she would simply go and find it, with or without her friends. Just as she was about to turn and follow however, a spell hit her square in the chest.

“… … …”.

Panic started to set as the words that she’d been trying to speak to Kinsay refused to part from her lips. Wait, WHERE were her lips?! Dropping her wand, she reaches up and grasped at the place where her mouth should have been but there was nothing! SHE HAD NO MOUTH! Needless to say, she may or may not have heard the dragon whistler shout something to her about a cabin (Andrei) but that didn’t matter now. Who even was he? No. As much as it pained her, she knew that the dragons would have to wait. The chaos around her had risen to the point where it could no longer be ignored but, what could she do? After all, the dragons, despite being amazing, were actually wreaking havoc on the place and the students!

No, priorities! Doing her best to regain control of her breathing, she crouched for a moment to pick her wand back up, only slightly distracted that she could still breath out of her mouth…even though she didn’t have one? Strange. She didn’t have time to actually let that sink in though when stunning spell after stunning spell was hurled in her rough direction! Luckily it didn’t hit her but still…it was a close call.

What were those neo-alliance people playing at? Did they not see the dragon that had…oh god. Ingrid inhaled in shock as she turned on the spot to watch a Welsh Green hurtle into a tree, dropping a student in the progress.

AHAahahahaha.

There. Was. Too. Much. Going. On. What could she do? What could she actually do? She couldn’t talk. She couldn’t cast non-verbal spells. She was useless. Doing the only thing she could actually do, she turned back to the only person close to her (Kinsay) and grabbed her with all her might, pulling her up from the floor. Unable to actually speak, she simply pointed to the stupid building that the stupid dragon whisperer had told them to go to. Would she actually know what she was trying to gesture at, because she clearly didn’t look okay?

Bye Bye Birdie Louise.
Why were people shooting spells AT the dragon?! Didn't they know that if they hurt the dragon, it would probably DROP her and then she'd be as good as dead. AND WHY WAS THAT TREE ON FIRE???? Before Louise could really panic too much about flying into a burning tree and getting singed to death, she was suddenly.... weightless.

Falling, actually.

She was falling. Doooooown, dooooooooooooown, doooooooooooooooooooooooown....

But there were more pressing matters. Her eyes were on her former groupmate that was now in the CLUTCHES of a dragon. She followed after it, continually looking around for some way to release the girl unharmed.

That chance didn't come though. The dragon dropped her. " Aresto Momentum" she shouted, aiming toward the falling figure, hoping that she was close enough and the spell was strong enough to ease the fall.

And to double their chances of getting Louise down safely, Violet cast a cushioning charm on the ground below her -- “Molliare!"
Louise screamed at the top of her lungs as her limbs flailed about, the ground getting VERY close as she hurtled toward it. Just as she tried and failed to reach for her wand (had it flown out of her robes?), amidst the chaos on the ground, she saw a small flash of light and felt gravity resist her fall just a little. No, that wasn't gravity. That was a spell. Someone had saved her.

For the most part.

She hadn't been that high up and was rather close to kissing the ground when the spell hit. But thankfully when she DID land on the ground, she was pleased to find that the grass had some extra cushion to it. Louise had still hit the ground pretty fast, even though it was MUCH softer than it would have been without the charm that her unknown (as of now) hero had cast. But her chest was tight and the panic had not yet left her body. She could hardly breathe.

She was safe, though. Well, for the most part.

This was too much. It was too much. Everything was too much.

Kinsay pressed her palms against her head with all her might in hopes that it would drown everything out. It didn't drown anything out, of course, but she swore it was helping all the same. Also helping? Looking down at her thighs. If she couldn't see everything happening it made it less real. Like she wasn't actually in the middle of a battle-zone-dragon-sanctuary gone wrong. Of course this detached version of reality she was trying to fabricate for herself did not last very long.

In fact, she was quite literally pulled out of it.

O____________________O

By her friend who no longer had a mouth?!?! Kinsay audibly gasped, paying very little attention to Ingrid's gestures (because there was only so much she could focus on with all the brain fuzz happening). "Ingrid, your mouth!" It.... was not the most intelligent thing Kinsay had ever said, but to be fair... there was a lot going on and it was impeding her ability to properly think through everything. In any case, she did want to help Ingrid, but she knew deep down that any spell she could manage would only make things worse. So instead, she reached for Ingrid's hand and began running, her little legs were working in overtime to carry her towards shelter. Once again, if it were a matter of fight or flight, Kinsay James chose flight.

Except.

In all the haste, she didn't realize that she had stepped into the direct line of fire stunning spells. And just like that, she fell to the ground with a distinct THUD.

Okay, so he wasn’t hearing things. Heath noted Ivy and Ilya’s replies, but before he had time to speak, things started happening faster than he could process them. Several non-hooded adults arrived. Then Louise took off, and Williamson was stunned. The hoods were attacking the other adults and spells were going everywhere and - What?!? The hoods wanted them to release the dragons?

All he could do was stare in horror as one of the dragons picked up Louise, and that scream for help made his blood run cold. The adults would get her down, right? They were closer to her… Just when he thought things couldn’t possibly get any more chaotic, his groupmates went after Louise. Had everyone gone mad?! Going after Louise was walking straight into the line of fire! He never thought he’d say this, but he thought they were safer near the cave. In fact, he would’ve stayed there, had it not been for Williamson’s orders to stay with the group and… His heart dropped as he saw the Hebridean Black breathing fire toward Claudine’s group. Please let that guy’s (KIttredge) shield hold!

Heath scrambled down the mountainside after the others, casting a flame freezing charm on himself as he went. If he had to be in the thick of this, he wasn’t going to make himself an easy target for the dragons or the hoods. Merlin, the hoods! He was so frazzled by everything else happening that he completely forgot their orders to destroy the environment until he saw Violet and Ivy’s spells. If he had to do this, he was going to use whatever spell was least likely to endanger lives, human or dragon, but what? It was hard to think under so much pressure! Oh, he knew! Bluebell flames… those would burn the plants but not any people or dragons. He pointed his wand, sending a jet of blue flames at the nearest tree.

What? The hoods wanted them to draw the dragons out now?! How was he supposed to do that without either A) getting close enough to the dragons to be burned or eaten or B) drawing the dragons’ attention to him with whatever spells he used? Before he could come up with a plan, he saw Louise fall and Valencia and Violet cast spells to save her. Was she okay? That fall looked like it hurt. He rushed over to Louise, casting a shield charm to protect her (and himself) from any wayward spells while she recovered. “Hey, Louise… are you hurt?” he asked.

"Willy-" Louise started to say as she barged in, but her fast feet slipped on the wet ground and she slid, colliding right into the blonde lady (Aurora). She grabbed the lady's dragon hide gear as her feet slid and fell right to the ground - but not before whispering LOUDLY: "YOU HAVE TO HELP US."


Aurora was about to shout some orders out to her team that were portkeying in around her when several things happened at once. A girl clad in Hogwarts robes barged into her conversation with the man and the woman from the reserve saying 'Willy' which probably meant the man before she slipped, collided right into Aurora’s side, grabbing onto her gear before falling to the ground with a loud whisper that was alarming to Aurora’s ears. Looking down at the girl she reassured "We are here to help. Don’t worry dear, we’ll get things sorted in no time." She couldn’t say that she had no idea what they needed help so desperately with yet though.

SPOILER!!: Georgia + Willy Williamson

She was a dragon keeper, after all, and her stunning spells were pretty powerful. She only felt a little bit guilty about stunning the man too. He had been trespassing and he had asked for it. Literally.

”I have no idea. But there are students trespassing on the reserve all over the place. I have no idea of how many or why they are here.” She motioned to the man she had just shot the stunning spell at. ”He asked for it,” she said a little manically. ”Said something about releasing the dragons.” Surely the Ministry official understood how dangerous that was!

Oh no.

Oh no.

Oh no no no no no!


Turning to Georgia again she did her best to cancel out the yells, cries and other sounds coming from students, adults and dragons all around them. Furrowing her brows Aurora took in the information that Georgia gave her and responded. "I see, well let’s get the students to safety before we worry about why they are here." There were definitely more to the story than just a few students trespassing on a dragon reserve for good fun. Aurora gave a glance to the stunned man lying on the ground before focusing on Georgia again with a head shake. "Oh my, that’s not only stupid, but down right dangerous. We have to stop the dragons from being released." Maybe she needed to send for even more ministry reinforcements. Aurora turned to the man on the ground again to wake him up. The professor was of better use to them if he was awake, talking and helping them with the students' protection. "Enervate!" she cast her wand pointing down at Williamson’s slumped figure.

SPOILER!!: Inquisitorial dudes

Then there was the foolish Gryffindor (Louise). A loud BANG sounded as a hooded figure sent a powerful knockback jinx at her. “Get back to your group, girl,” the figure snarled. Just be thankful they didn’t do worse… yet!

Amidst the chaos, one figure turned and shouted to the students, “STUDENTS, RELEASE THE DRAGONS! Destroy their environment. Use any means necessary.”


Aurora was waiting for the man to come to when she was warned by a sixth sense or just experience that she was being attacked. Quickly she cast “Protego duo!” managing with a thin margin to get her shield up before she was stunned senseless by the spells cast by some hooded figures around the reserve. They were by her observations criminals with a bad agenda and that they were shooting spells only meant bad things and injuries to come.

Taking a breath Aurora was about to attack the hooded men when the girl at her feet was knocked away from her side. “Hey!” Aurora shouted anger flaring up as she cast spells in succession in the hooded figures directions. "Leave the girl alone! Stupefy! Impedimenta! Expelliarmus!" Things went from bad to worse when a figure in the chaos ordered the students to release the dragons. Oh flaming fwoopers this was not going as planned.


SPOILER!!: Dragons

And. He. Was. Angry.

Rising from his slumber, the large dragon flapped its wings and began breathing fire towards the group of nearby students (Aboli, Lilith, Cecelia, Claudine, Morgan) and flying in their direction.

****


Unable to penetrate the shield that had been cast between themselves and the children (MUGGLEBORNS) with the SHINIES, the Vipertooth twins, instead, began flapping overhead others nearby (Carson and Inquisitorial Squad).

Did they know what it felt like to be hit by dragon dung? Well, now was their opportunity because these twins had consumed a LARGE breakfast and it was time to relieve themselves. Ah.

DUNG, INCOMING!

The children best be careful too! There's enough dung to go around.

****


The baby Fireball wanted a SNACK! The children (Ingrid, Nemesis, and Kinsay) looked so tasty!!! Except. HEY!

BOINK. BOINK. BOINK.

There seemed to be some sort of shield blocking it from the kids and the baby was not happy about it. She waaaaaaaailed in Dragonese, only to be momentarily distracted by whistling. Redirecting her attention towards the whistling man (Andrei), the Fireball started running towards him instead!!!! She wanted to nip at him!!

*****


The group of first years (Atlas, Tahdg, Dahlia) were spared by the shield thrown between them and the dopey Ridgeback thanks to one of the adults nearby (Aurora).

But from behind, an angered Chinese Fireball flapped over and picked one of the children (Dahlia) up with its talons and began flying off.

*****


Perhaps the two girls (Phoebe and Ivy) were onto something in suggesting going after their friend (Louise). Unfortunately, a large Welsh Green had the same idea. It made quick work of dropping down and picking up the red-headed child (Louise), scooping her up, up, UP into the air.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

She blinked - and she was in the air. Green talons were holding her as she floated through the air. A dragon..... a dragon had grabbed her. She was flying.

"HEEEEEEELP!" the sixth year screamed from up in the air, her hands grabbing onto the talons that held her there (because she didn't want the dragon to DROP her). Doing her best to REMAIN CALM, Louise took deep breaths and tried to look up at the Welsh Green that had dragon-napped her. This was fine.

THIS WAS FINE.

She had JUST told her group all about how Welsh Greens don't typically eat humans, so she PROBABLY wouldn't die. Maybe the Dragon just wanted... a toy? Ugh, that wasn't good either. "Hey, pretty dragon!" Louise yelled up at the beast as it carried her. "PLEASE don't DROP me, OKAY???" PLEASE? She was asking nicely!!!

“Drive the dragons OUT. You can do better than this.”

*


The members of the Inquisitorial Squad standing near the muggleborns swore under their breath as they shuffled away to avoid the Vipertooths’ excrement. Filthy creatures! They aimed various torture curses at the twin dragons, counteracting the single sleeping charm cast by the young ministry wizard (Carson) - the same man who was now on the receiving end of a Stupefy.

All around the reserve, hooded figures had their wands out with the goal of removing the adults trying to jeopardise their plan. A figure on the same side of the shield charm as the students and the talkative ministry official (Kittredge) cast another stunning spell at him while he spoke. When a Slytherin in that group (Lilith) attempted to stun her classmate, they conjured a magical shield to protect the pure-blood child who did the right thing by unlocking the gate (Gemma) and sent the caster a powerful knockback jinx to knock some sense into her. Another figure had to break up the very touching reunion (Fintan & Flynn) with a stinging hex at both, then directed an Ebublio jinx at the adult to isolate him. “Back to your group. Now.” They shoved the child back. The cloaked individual before the Romanian (Andrei) deflected the ball of fire with a lazy flick of their wand, followed by a sudden slashing movement, which sent a streak of purple flame back at him. Funny he thought he was in charge here; he would be better off fully incapacitated. The woman who foolishly tried to stun the Ridgeback (Serena) also had a stunning spell shot her way.

One hooded figure noticed a student disillusion themselves amid the chaos (Nemesis). They immediately sprang into action, sending stunning spells in the direction where they disappeared as well as the vicinity. Others who joined the effort to recapture the insubordinate student spread out and fired spells whenever they saw ripples in the air that could suggest the disillusioned child’s movement. No one would be escaping under the Neo-Alliance's watch.

Its brilliant, purple eyes narrowed as it drew itself even closer to the group, testing the bounds of the barrier.

"RAAaaaAAAAaaaaWWWwwwk!"

One of the Vipertooths fell to the ground twitching in pain as a result of the torture curse sent its way by members of the Inquisitorial Squad.

Seeing his brother fall to the ground, the other dragon made its descent towards the ground too, violently flapping its wings and sending heavy winds towards the group of nearby children (MUGGLEBORNS).

****


CHICKENS. CHICKENS. CHICKENS.

The baby Fireball turned its attention away from the man (Andrei) to chase after the hens instead.

CHICKEN. BABY WANTS CHICKEN.

The larger Fireball, however, was still flying over head with the child (Dahlia) in its grip. She would make a nice meal for their family. Mmmm.

"EEEOOORK!"

The girl's screams did very little to deter the agile dragon who weaved around trees in order to dodge any stunning spells (Serena) sent its way. Unfortunately for the Fireball, Dahlia's movements managed to loosen the dragon's hold and its sharp talons began ripping through her robes.

****


FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM!!!!

Only a few seconds after the child (Gemma) opened the gates, did several dragons escape. A few set fire to trees and bushes, whilst others knocked into buildings, but they were all leaving the sanctuary.

Wooooooooooosh

****


The Welsh Green dodged several spells with the child (Louise) still in its hold. Turning back towards the other screaming children, it squawked as if taunting them. In doing so, it had completely miscalculated its trajectory, heading straight towards an exploding tree and releasing the child from its hold as a result.

Bye Bye Birdie Louise.


Many things happened at once! It all became a blur after just a few moments.

Everywhere Aurora looked, chaos was in full swing; dragons were spilling dung, setting fire to trees, knocking over buildings and worst snatching up and injuring students. As if things couldn’t get even badder the last of the dragon reserve wards broke and dragons started to flee the sanctuary.

Turning to Georgia her face grim now Aurora said preparing herself mentally for a fight. "We need to act swiftly and efficiently. The dragons are escaping and there is no telling what damage they will cause to the surrounding forest if we don’t get them contained and back under control. How many men do you have under your command Ms Templeton? Shall i call for even more ministry reinforcements or are these dragons easy to contain?" She didn’t know how tame these dragons were but hopefully they’d come back for a promise of a nice steak.

Turning to look around at her employees she used her wand to enhance her voice mumbling under her breath before commanding with all her poise and strength that the department head role gave her. "All ministry personnel round up the students, help those who are injured and get them to safety in the reserve building over there. Move!" She pointed, indicating the one that Andrei had been ushering kids in moments ago.

As he hugged the boy back, he scanned his surroundings. "Flynn, who are these people? Why are they freeing the dragons?" His questions were hushed and hurried, and try as he might to keep worry from his voice it wasn't possible.
"Its the Neo-Alliance." Flynn said, his voice muffled into Fin's neck, not loud enough to carry past their embrace. "Kale's dad is gone. There was polyjuice. His name is Rosier. You have to go get help." He didn't manage anything else that might have been useful information however....

....a stinging hex hit his forearm, welts immediately flaring up along its length. He was pushed back hard by one of the hoods almost immediately, and he staggered back, barely registering the flare of pain in the welts rising on his arm. Later he might marvel that he wasn't pushed down completely, since he was bigger now, bigger than last time, but right now Flynn was too stricken at the realisation that if he didn't do what they said others might get hurt. His group. His group. If Flynn didn't do what they said, then they'd all be in danger. Everyone. More than they were. Flynn didn't have enough Gryffindor in him to be defiant, not given what he had seen already, what had happened to his friends this year, and definitely not given his own past...

And then he saw his son being SHOVED.

No. His wand gripped firmly in his hand, and one eye swollen shut, Fintan cast the counter-containment spell to free himself from the bubble, before raising his wand again and sending a silent stupefy at the hooded figure who had shoved Flynn, not waiting to see if it had landed before speaking. "Flynn, get inside," he urged, hoping that any of the kids that could hear him would follow suit.

As he was looking around, trying to establish who he could help, the cries of the hurt Vipertooth pulled his focus. With its sibling descending and causing the wind, he tried to implement a shield between them both and the students - Merlin knew that it wasn't just the wind that was a problem, but a hurt Dragon could very well be one, too.
"They'll hurt everyone! We have to do what they tell us." He wasn't the most coherent but there wasn't time to have full conversations with detailed explanations either. Everything was happening so fast. "Help them!" Whether Flynn meant the Neo-Alliance, the kids, or the dragons, was perhaps not particularly clear, but it was all he managed before scrambling back a few steps and then turning on his heel to take off running, away from the wind of dragon wingbeats.

Right then, when the baby Vipertooth cried out, Flynn looked around too. He just happened to see Kinsay go down, holding hands with Ingrid who had no mouth. And where was Nemesis? Flynn gave Fintan a frightened, stricken look over his shoulder, and changed his trajectory, running as fast as he could towards the two younger girls. Kizzy was literally family and they were his group, he had to help if he could. He had to go to them like he was told.

"Ingrid! Keep going!" He scooped Kinsay up and over his shoulder, and ignoring the painful pull of the angry welt on his arm, thrust his hand out for Ingrid to take, immediately tugging her along. Shelter didn't seem like something that would help much, but maybe it was a start.

Where was Nemesis???

ooc: please let me know if I need to change anything you guys! I know I took a couple liberties here, but the thread is moving so fast I didn't want to wait.

Whew okay, his fingers were back. Not all of them, but enough for him to hold his wand. Carson bent down to pick up the wand he dropped and felt a gust of wind over his head as a jet of red light flew over him ... and hit the young child he promised to protect.

It was a bad time for him to freeze, yet he stared at the unconscious girl for a moment as spells and dragons flew overhead in complete chaos. He was crouched in the position where he was picking up his wand. He heard one of the Vipertooths cry in pain, then almost fell over from a heavy rush of wind which meant the twin brother was flapping down, closer to them, and he was still here trying to catch his breath. He was vaguely aware of Minjae telling him about murderous fanatics and a younger boy begging to see his mom and dad. His mind was blank. This was all too much for him. He was just a kid like these students, he had no idea what to do and his incompetence could get them all killed. A saviour came in the form of another adult who was clearly braver and smarter than him, hopefully a well-versed dragon handler too. The shield that he conjured made the wind gentler, and Carson jolted out of his reverie.

"Rennervate," he said calmly, pointing his wand at the Hufflepuff. He pulled her up by the hand (missing a finger) and spoke to the group, taking note of Aurora's order. "Yes, never mind the dragons' eyes or starting a fire, you guys get inside the building. Minjae, keep everyone safe. They won't hurt you if I'm not with you." At least, he noticed that the hooded people were only firing spells at him and his coworkers like crazy. He could not go with them and risk another one take an attack meant for him. He gestured toward the shelter and added a protective shield between the path and the two dragons. "Go! This way! Protego!"

Ash was in the middle of casting bombarda, but then.... DRAGONS WERE BEING TORTURED. MAMIE WAS DOWN. SHE HAD FORGOTTEN ONE OF CARSON'S FINGERS. And she was about to fall over. She grabbed a nearby pitchfork and used it to keep herself up. "Mamie! Are you okay?" They were supposed to run away now. She looked into Carson's eyes sadly. This was the end, wasn't it? She was going back. "Wrong. They won't hurt you if you aren't with us. As long as you're a pureblood, you'll be fine. Ummmm... I'm sorry I didn't put your fingers back right, and also don't die, okay?" And with that, she ran for the building that the other adult was telling them to go to, hoping that the other muggleborns would follow them. Maybe this would be the last time she ever saw Carson, who was practically a kid. Either she'd die, or he would. Or maybe both of them. Tragic. What about Minjae? He was headed down a death path too. There were so many people who she might never see again. Like Williamson, who she had been mad at two seconds ago, and the lady who was in charge. So many people were down right now. She wondered if any of them were dead.

It was absolute madness. There was so much going on: dragons breaking free, hooded figures throwing hexes at children, and lots of yelling. Not to mention the fact that Jasper had been hit with a nasty Incarcerous curse and was now dangling upside-down by a bunch of ropes. The group that he had been trying to protect was still being stared down by the increasingly angry-looking Hebridean Black. And his newest coworker had been stunned as well.

Luckily, he had his wand in his hand before he was hit with the jinx. Wriggling within the ropes, Jasper was able to direct it toward his ankle. "Diffindo!" he shouted firmly. The piece around his leg broke free, and he tumbled to the ground, letting out a groan as he landed with a thump. He quickly started to wriggle his way out of the severed ropes.

Jasper's head was spinning. It was almost too much to take in. And he knew that they were massively outpowered. The only thing he could do was heed his department head's instructions and get the children to safety.

"Protego maxima!"He cast another protective spell toward the dragon, trying to by the students some time to escape as he clambered to his feet. "Come on. We need to get you all to safety," he said hurriedly to the group, attempting to guide them to the reserve building—his wand still drawn behind him at the ready position.

Let it be known that one Whitney J. Quartermaine was in full support of this whole jailbreak attempt of a field trip that Professor Williamson had brought them on. That was why he'd brought them, right? Since, apparently, they weren't even supposed to be here today, according to the woman now yelling at and STUNNING the professor. What she wasn't in favor of, however, was the hooded figures that followed them EVERYWHERE nowadays yelling for them to RELEASE THE KRAKENS DRAGONS! Uh, how about no?

Instead, Whitney followed the instructions of the reserve staff (they were reserve staff, right?) telling people to get inside. She, of course, pulled any Hogwartain she could with her, but, yeah, she was outta here. Figuratively speaking, of course, since she was going inside. Later, taters!

Eeeek!

Why was everything so god, darn difficult! All she wanted to do was to get to safety but no! Not even that was easy. Jumping back, an expression of dread spreading across her, Ingrid looked down at the slumped, recently stunned figure of Kinsay on the floor.

“Kinsay…Kizz?”, she tried to mumbled as her friends body lay on the floor, her hand outstretched towards her where she’d dropped it in shock. Nothing came out. Mouth still apparently non-existent, the second year was about to collapse and give up when an older boy swooped in out of nowhere, grabbing her hand like some kind of brown-haired angel.

She wanted to shout and scream that Kinsay had been stunned, that she had no mouth, but it was no use. Grasping at his hand as though it was a port key, she ran away from the violence only a few steps behind.

Violet was never so glad to have cast a spell correctly as she was when she saw Louise land safely, more or less. Still trying to looking around for dragons, hooded figures, or just panicked wizards shooting off spells, she called over to Heath and Louise, hoping to also get Valencia's attention. "Louise--are you all right? Can you get up? A lot of kids are running into that building down there, and I think it might be a good idea to join them, if you can make it." If any of them could make it.

Aaaaaaand she was back!! And everything was still chaos! Mamie was a little groggy and wished she'd been allowed to stay on the ground a little longer, but she cooperated when Carson pulled her to her feet. What...what was going on? She was relieved at least that the wind from the dragon's wings appeared to be blocked, so she didn't have any extra trouble standing upright. Just she was a little lightheaded? Had she fainted? Was this a normal reaction to fainting? Mamie was very confused, and did not fully realize she had actually been on the receiving end of a stunning spell, so stayed quiet as the man told them to go inside the building.

Still somewhat dizzy from, y'know, being yanked to her feet and also obviously from having been stunned and revived, Mamie grabbed for the hand of whichever Muggleborn was closest. She was worried she'd fall over before making it to that building they were supposed to go into. Then she headed off, after Ashley, hoping that whomever's hand she'd grabbed would follow or lead.

Was she hurt? Yes. No? Maybe. Louise was still in too much shock to really take inventory on her limbs. "No," Louise said to Heath when he asked. Wait - "Yes. My ankle." The shock from the fall was starting to fade and Louise was beginning to register the yelling and chaos all around them now that she was back on the ground.

A moment later, Violet was by her side and asking her questions. Louise's green eyes looked around at all the running students and adults and hoods and flying spells and everything was so hard to understand. She felt like she'd been hit by a stunning spell. "What's happening?" Louise asked, before answering Violet's questions. "I hurt my ankle," Louise said - had she already said that? "I think it's sprained or something." The redhead tried to get on her feet, but the pressure sent searing pain through her ankle.

"Where's Williamson?" Louise asked suddenly, becoming more alert. The last she had seen was him getting stunned by the dragon lady. That was the whole reason she had come barreling down the hill and gotten scooped up the dragon anyway.

astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf

Andrei found his attention horribly divided between wanting to protect the dragons and wanting to keep all human life in the area safe as well. In each young face he saw his niece and nephews, which only made the Romanian yearn for some confirmation that they were okay. But now was not the time for his own personal agenda, however painful that was, and his instincts had him focusing on the kids. Hopefully the rest of his unit from the Ministry could handle the dragons...though out of the corner of his eye he did spot a few of them flying away from the sanctuary and he cursed harshly under his breath in his native tongue.

Somewhere between the screams and howls from human and beast alike, Andrei was able to refocus on the group of kids he had been addressing. "Keep moving, I'll cover you!" he barked, though not unkindly. At least the dragon was off chasing the fire chickens and that meant they were somewhere safe as well. He had turned his head away from the fray for only a few blinks, but it was enough for the one hooded figure to hurtle yet another spell at him. The slashing moment paired with the color flame that came towards him had his gut lurched horrible and it was only at the last second that he managed to retrieve his wand and redirect the spell towards the ground just to his right. Or so he thought. His attention divided had cost him greatly and while he had managed to prevent the spell from striking him square in the chest, the spell still managed to strike his knee before exploding an impressive hole in the ground. Crumbling to the ground on one knee, Andrei grit his teeth and attempted to deflect a few other spells tossed towards this particular group of kids...though not in time enough to prevent one from striking the one girl. Thankfully one of her peers was right there to scoop her up. "K-Keep...going..." he grit out, a shield charm in palce around himself for the moment, while he did a head count...and there was one less than when he had arrived.

Grunting and curling his fingers to once again charm the air wandlessly, his dark brown eyes darted around trying to find the missing kid. Poor thing had probably run off scared and was hiding somewhere. Andrei could hardly blame them, what with dragons and then these hooded figured casting spelled that aimed to kill. It left the worst kind of unsettling feeling in his stomach and adrenaline alone had him pushing through the excruciating pain in his leg. He still had an arm that had been struck by something as well and was worthless. Four limbs, two mobile. He had been through worse.

"There is a student from this group missing!" he called out to the dragonologist that had just been embracing one of the students, which only made that yearning to find his own niece and nephews more poignant.

The larger Fireball, however, was still flying over head with the child (Dahlia) in its grip. She would make a nice meal for their family. Mmmm.

"EEEOOORK!"

The girl's screams did very little to deter the agile dragon who weaved around trees in order to dodge any stunning spells (Serena) sent its way. Unfortunately for the Fireball, Dahlia's movements managed to loosen the dragon's hold and its sharp talons began ripping through her robes.
All of the chaos that was happening down on the ground was of no real focus of Dahlia's at this point in time. There was only one very very HUGE matter on her hands. Well technically not in her hands. She was still very much in the strong grasp of extremely large talons of a mama Fireball dragon.

Her screams caught in her throat the higher the dragon flew with her. The flailing ceased and panic had set in. They were reaching the tree line, the Fireball weaving through tree like a champ, Lia waving about in the air like a rag doll, hitting anything that was in their path. The wind was so loud in her ears, along with the strong powerful flapping of the dragon's wings and loud roars. Her heart beating so hard she felt like she was going to pass out.

And that's when she felt it. Those talons that were holding onto her so tightly ripping through her robes. If she was scared before, it was tenfold now! If she fell she was a goner! Adrenaline must have kicked in then, she flailed around trying to catch hold of the dragon's foot/talon and hold on with all of her might.

Frightened blue eyes looked down at everything below, trying to see where they were and if anyone would be able to help her if she fell.

Default @ EVERYONE. If you have a Hogwarts student, you'd BETTER grab a portkey.
Professor Pink | Mrs. Bruce Wayne | I'm on a Goat | Glitterpuff | Evil Twin | #DancingQueen | BHB

Williamson had been out for who knew how long until suddenly... he wasn't. The woman (Bagnold) had revived him, and as he slowly came to, groaning all the while, he first realized that... that...

This field trip had degenerated into sheer and utter chaos. CHAOS.

And then his second realization was that his responsibility was to the kids and the School, and he needed to get everyone back to Hogwarts safely and responsibly. And they needed to get back as soon as possible. And also? He didn't want to deal with ONE MORE ADULT today because ONCE AGAIN they'd proven themselves useless to him. Seriously. Who would stun him? He had more years of experience working with dragons than half these people put together. But why was he even surprised the officials had stunned him? They were fools, the whole lot of 'em. This kind of foolish red tape was precisely why he'd left Romania, and Britain, and then Romania again, and then even the USA. Grown people were such a letdown to him.

So it was time he took matters into his own hands. Time to steel himself to do what needed to be done. He sat up and noticed Atlas Flamsteed was on the ground next to him, so he first shook that kid. "Get to a portkey when I say go and don't look back, alright?"

Williamson cleared his throat and pushed himself up off the ground and to a standing position. He started slowly and sneakily started to work his magic. He was not in a rush or anything, but he was carefully going around to gather the old portkeys from their arrival here, and any other random objects (a branch, a large leaf, someone's pumpkin juice bottle that hadn't made it to the rubbish bin....) that could become portkeys as well. He thought about disillusioning himself as a different Slytherin had done, but also thought that he couldn't (well, SHOULDN'T) do that. He was a leader here, like it or not. He technically worked for the greater good. He had to just count that no one was noticing him pulling strings in the background while he tried his best to save lives and save his own skin in the process.

Eventually, he had assembled a small pile of portkeys away from the center of the chaos, and started calling out names of kids as he spotted them so that they'd grab one and go back. No one had given him the authorization to create these portkeys, by the by; he'd just been relying on his knowledge of portus and all of his training from way back when he'd worked for the British Ministry, though he couldn't care less for that organization right now.

"LOUISE BONES," came Williamson's amplified voice, ringing out over the chaos thanks to a subtle sonorous he'd just cast on himself: "Come get your portkey home!" Who else could he see... his tired brown eyes roamed over the madness... "TUROV!" There was one who needed a bit of salvation for sure. Who was she with? Oh great. "Fox!" And some strange man... yeah no, he was NOT dealing with that right now.

He just numbly continued to shout names: "Blackthorne! Jones! Luck family!" Cheez, he'd forgotten there were two of them. "Quartermaine! Whitlock! James! Youngest James..." Wait, why was the youngest James on the ground, and where in the heck was Upstead? Wasn't Nemesis supposed to be watching the other little kids in the group? Or was it the other way around? He was losing his focus as he watched more and more of the chaos break out....

NO no no no, he wasn't going to get distracted by his one true love, aka, dragons. Hard as it was, he had to tear his misty eyes away from looking at them.



NO, WILLIAM, YOU HAVE TO SAVE THE CHILDREN.

"McCarthy, grab two friends and get a portkey! Yoon, same to you!" Surely he could count on some of the elder students to lead the youths.... sureeeeeely.... though in all this mess, WWW also couldn't see who was or was not down for the count. "Phillips? Kitridge? Jenovick? Grimm? Kingsley? Donovan? Blaze? Summers? Song? Tilly, has anyone seen Tilly?" Good thing he'd done role at the start of class, right? Because this list of names was all just now in his head. If only he'd brought a clipboard... actually, maybe it was a good thing he hadn't brought role on a clipboard. The kids would probably be blamed for this mess, wouldn't they? And knowing him, he'd accidentally leave the roster at the reserve, and then that woman who'd stunned him would find it, and then---

He was getting off track once more! Blame the mess! Blame the pressure! Blame the Inquisitorial Squad!

Speaking of, the Inquisitorial Squad were really going to like his taking charge, weren't they. Maybe he could say something to them, so they'd... help him round up the youths? He glanced to the nearest Hood, his voice still magically amplified: "I think that's enough dragons for now... can't play all our aces in the first round, am I right? We gotta get back to report to the Bossman. Can you guys grab the leftovers?"

Sure, sure, had to make it sound legit or whatever. He had a feeling he'd junked up this field trip enough that Rosier was going to have his head on the chopping block no matter what, so....

The explosions prompted more dragons to take flight, following their families in making an escape from the sanctuary. Thank you, Morgan.

BUT CAREFUL!

They were destroying everything in their path as they made their way to sweet, sweet freeeeeeeeeeeedom.

****


The hurt Vipertooth flailed about on the ground in pain, its tail thrashing this way and that.

"RAAAWWWWWWWWWWK!"

Its brother was just as vocal and violent, directing a line of fire towards anyone nearby, but stopping just short of causing any real harm due to a protective shield cast by one of the wizards in the vicinity (Fintan). Instead it turned and started setting fire to the surrounding bushes.

****


The Hebridean Black continued to forge forth in attempt to break the barrier between itself and the group of children (Boot Group). The extra shielding (Jasper) seemed to be keeping it back for now.

Angered by the protective charms, the large dragon went bounding for someone else (Aurora) instead.

DRAGON ANGWYYYYYY!!!!!!

****


The dragon expertly dodged the spells aimed its way, but in doing so he did not realize his loosened hold on the young child (Dahlia). Her wiggling drew its attention and the dragon released her momentarily in order to readjust its grip. Unfortunately, at the same time, a rogue bombarda caused injury to its tail.

Squawking in pain, the dragon flapped towards the nearest cave, leaving the child to fall from the sky.

"RaAAAWwwwwKKkkKKk!"

Default Mamie has Moose, Moose has Mamie! Moose misunderstands "Home"
I have an addiction to cheddar cheese. But it's only mild. Ever tried to eat a clock? It's time-consuming.

Moose was getting really worked up from everything that was happening. He tossed one spell, and thought that was pretty much enough for him for the day. Did some damage. Cowered in a huddle with some of his fellow Muggleborns, and finally was gonna start to run for cover. That was until Moose saw Professor Williamson come too and started shouting all of their names to grab a portkey and to get ready to go home!

Home!? Like Home-home?! His Home!? Williamson you beautiful jerk of a professor you did it! He was going to go home!! They could go home!! How he knew how to get them all Home was weird, but maybe outside of all the chaos this is what the Professor had planned all along. If you die today, Moose will remember your sacrifice. In his own bed sleeping soundly. Thank you Angrier-Than-Him-Man.

Before he could finish his thought He felt his grip leave Minjae's and was getting tugged on by Mamie and he started his run with her! "Mamie, a Portkey home! Go that way! That way!" He gripped her hand tighter and turned their direction toward the pile of items the Care of Magical Creatures Professor had laid out. This was their chance finally!! They just had to run through all the chaos to be home-free!!

He reached for whatever. Any piece of junk the Professor laid out. It didn't matter. Moose along with Mamie were suddenly being transported back Home!

Default hi. we were with the nem, lucks, kinsay ... and i guess flynn group :3
YesJess! | Captain Goggles | Mama Badger | Eva's Soul Sister | BigBadSis | Slytherin Soul & Badger Heart

From someone who was the child of the person who was in charge of portkey management, portkey travel was not new to Apollo. But portkey travel without his mother or some other family member, WAS new and honestly Apollo hadn't known what to expect. Throwing up wasn't an option; he'd traveled via portkey before and therefore he knew what to expect.

He did NOT, however, expect to be separated from his group upon landing. Just his luck and he was literally out of two of them. He found himself squatting down behind some shrubbery to observe the chaos because it was easier that way and what in the world had happened??? Everything just seemed a whirlwind before Apollo's eyes as he watched, wishing that Bella had been in his group. So this was .... pre-meditated? But not? Since the lady didn't seem to have a clue they were coming? Who were all these adults? Why were the dragons being released?

Ooh.... close call of some fire from one of the dragons, as he rolled away from the spot he was in.

The professor was out and then he was revived. And Apollo just stared ... until... oh, they were going back? Did he have to? Could he just stay here... since he was sort of apart from the rest of the group. Well apart, but close enough where if someone was looking for a missing child, they'd probably be able to spot him. Considering he was about half the size of the people who had appeared on request. Workers from the creatures department, which made him wonder... was Uncle Alex there too?? He squinted around to see. Also made him wonder... if they arrived by portkey, his mother knew something of this too, right?



ooc: please let me know if i misread something here, but took some liberties since well this all moved along during the snow palooza XD. Someone grab this child too before he gets eaten. Thanks.

Unfortunately, the dragon let go of Louise before they had time to figure out a way to safely make it land.

Fortunately, Valencia and Violet's quick spells cushioned her fall, and she seemed to be okay now that Heath had also joined Violet by her side.

Unfortunately...Williamson was telling them to grab a portkey back to Hogwarts.

And Ivy wanted so badly to protest. There were other adults here! They were SO CLOSE to freedom. Why did they have to leave???

But there was no point in saying anything, was there? The Inquisitorial Squad was capable of hurting the dragons, and no one was succeeding at stopping them. There was no way she'd be able to run away safely either.

It was so frustrating. That was putting it mildly.

(Un)fortunately, her attention was grabbed by the burning trees, more and more dragons flying away - escaping?? MUST BE NICE - AND...another student (Dahlia) falling from the sky. Oh Merlin. How many people had these dragons grabbed??

"Professor!" Waving one arm in an effort to catch his attention, she pointed at the girl falling with her wand in her other and, casting an "Arresto Momentum!" She wasn't confident if her own spell would be enough, though, so hopefully the professor spotted her too.

Constant Vigilance! O_O AWAKE!

Mamie heard her name...? Williamson was up again. Oh, and he was telling them to portkey back! Thank Merlin, she wanted to get out of here and crawl into her bed and possibly throw up a bit. Horrible as they were treating Muggleborns at Hogwarts now-a-days, at least they usually weren't at risk of dying in their classes. Threatened with death? Sure. But nobody had been killed at Hogwarts. Just tortured.

Clinging tightly to Moose's hand as he redirected them to the pile of junk, she too grabbed ahold of the portkey. What was this, the bit of broom? The useless end of a pitchfork? "Ashley?" she thought at the last minute, looking back to see if her friend was coming along too before the

WHOOOOSH

Ash liked fire. She had an inner pyromaniac- scratch that. She WAS a pyromaniac. Though she would never admit it. And she would rather be surrounded by fire than by cultists, but she didn't have a choice. She grabbed a portkey with Mamie. And some other people. "I think there are people missing." But she'd think about that later. For now she was being taken away.............. from one horror to the other, worse horror. The horror called Hogwarts(Also: prison, torture, hostage place, horrible place, and many other names). Everything was terrible, basically.

Flynn sure couldn't go looking for Nem now, not with everything going on, not with an unconscious Kinsay James over his shoulder and Ingrid Luck clinging on to his hand for dear life.

Hearing the Professor, Flynn detoured again, heading that way. Portkey. Portkey. They had to go back. They had to because even if the group somehow escaped, everyone back at school would be punished, they just would. Hopefully the adults here got the message out though. He hoped Fin would tell his mum and dad that he was okay.

"Grab a portkey, Ingrid!" Flynn yelled as they approached the professor and his pile of.... well they weren't licensed portkeys were they? But who cared, Flynn had no choice but to trust it, and he did trust Williamson, and professors ought to have emergency portkey licenses anyways, right? Flynn didn't realise it, but he had tears rolling down his cheeks still. The emotion of seeing his not-quite stepdad and getting a hug, no matter how brief it was, and then Kinsay so small and unconscious, was a lot. Anyway, he had his hands full, Ingrid would have to pick up a portkey to get the three of them through, he'd just hang onto her hand and make sure not to let go of Kins.

O___o

Yeah, no, this was NOT what she’d expected when she’d heard they were going to a dragon reserve. Cece was HORRIFIED. And honestly? As much as she was concerned about the whole NOT getting barbecued thing, the dragons were flying AWAY! Like AWAY-AWAY! This was soooo bad. So bad. The worst. Much danger. Help!

And then Professor Williamson’s voice came through the chaos demanding they grab a portkey and luckily for those in her group, it seemed the dragon had lost interest in them and was focusing on a older, more authoritative meal. With wide eyes, the blonde looked around and then shouted, ”We have to go! Come on! This way!” She grabbed the arm of the nearest group member and made for the portkeys in a mad dash, ignoring the adults who’d been helping them and just hoping they’d be okay with the mess that they were leaving behind.

Oh gosh.

The fifth year scrambled, putting her hand to the first portkey she came upon and wishing this field trip had gone very, very differently.
