Default The Giant Treehouse



Off to one side of the lake is a copse of trees that arch so high up in the sky, it's nearly impossible to see where their leafy tops end. But at the bottom of one is a rope ladder and a winding wooden staircase that wraps around the thickest trunk of the trees and leads up into the sky.

If you dare to ascend the ladder or the staircase, you'll be rewarded by entering the Giant Treehouse, which looks something like a cross between a log cabin and a miniature Hogwarts castle. The treehouse has a large veranda with rocking chairs on it and is completely surrounding and supported by the trunks of at least three trees, so it feels fairly stable even though it's suspended waaaaaaaaaay up in the air. The inside of the treehouse contains a few empty rooms, a tower, and a loft, but there are pillows and blankets, spare bits of parchment, ink and quills, and a bucket on a rope and pulley that goes all the way to the bottom of the tree. The treehouse looks (and smells!) brand-new, with nice new windows and fairy lights that illuminate the treehouse at dusktime.

No one said Williamson didn't still have the heart of a kid sometimes. He built this just for you.

And don't wory about falling out of the treehouse; there are a LOT of spells protecting and supporting the giant treehouse. If you were to fall from the treehouse or its platform, your fall would be slowed by magic. Plus, the ground below the treehouse has been charmed to feel like the equivalent of a squishy gym mat. Be careful though; too much horseplay will result in the grumpy groundskeeper shutting things down or turning this into his personal fort where kids can't find him.

After a cold homecoming back to the Gryffindor lion room, the boy no YOUNG MAN decided to make the most of the next day. He was going to have FUN before the terrible torture....right?. He wasn't going to let the circumstances get him down for too long. It was his SEVENTH YEAR! And he was going to have fun... Well as much fun as he could during in an examination year or during this inquisition or whatever they called themselves. He wasn't going to be one to lead an uprising; however, that would just..... not end well in anyone's favour. Nope. He was going to play it safe for now.

Thus the boy had scavenged a few things here and left his sad common room to go to the treehouse. And when he arrived at the treehouse - boy - was it his sanctuary. It seemed that this place had yet to be ransacked and as he entered into the room, he flopped happily onto the floor and just glanced up at the ceiling.

Relief washed over him and his concerns from the prior feast seemed to leave him in that moment.

What an absolutely sodding day it had been today. Aboli was mentally exhausted. She hadn't really slept, either, and her hands were shaking at random. The energies in the school...clouding her at this point, were making her feel almost ill. Her own ANGER at it all, too, was enough to settle, nice and solid, in the pit of her stomach as well.

It was sooooo much better being outside right now in the fresh afternoon air. Being a seventh year meant they had more free time, but the free time should be spent doing work and homework. Today, though, Aboli needed to find him. Noah...she had to find Noah. They hadn't gotten a chance to speak yet at all since the train.

She somehow had a feeling he'd be up here, and she couldn't explain why, but she wasn't surprised that, once she had climbed the ladder up, she saw him. Blonde hair to match hers until he changed it again. "It's just me, okay?" she collapsed next to him and kissed his cheek. "How are you holding up?"

Blonde hair to match hers until he changed it again. "It's just me, okay?" she collapsed next to him and kissed his cheek. "How are you holding up?"
Noah's thoughts were jumbled. As he lay on the floor of his newfound sanctuary, he let out a sigh as he sifted through the tangled web of thoughts and ideas in his mind. He didn't get too far when he heard a familiar voice. He didn't even lift his head to look at who it was because he KNEW who it was. He would have known that voice anywhere. He scrunched his nose slightly when he felt cool lips against his cheek. He turned his gaze to look at her and smiled gently. How was he? Well.....

He wrapped an arm around her, pulling her closer. He wanted to be close to her and just enjoy this moment because... he was terrified that this could be one of their last moments. However, he also did want to ask her (on a happier note) about all the nicknames that Bernie had told him. "In this moment? Much better that you're here with me and this treehouse is still in one piece..." he started before letting his voice drop off. He lowered his voice just in case they weren't alone. "I'm terrified, Aboli. Seventh year was supposed to be difficult." He pouted. "But this is insane and wild beyond my imagination. We can't do anything because if we do anything someone's going to get hurt... or worse killed. And i wouldn't be surprised if they were targeting us... or Minjae." He bit his lip. "I'm scared for my siblings. Evan's a second year and Maya's a first year.... Both muggleborn..." He wasn't sure if they were going to make it out alive.

He paused, taking a deep breath, before leaning in to kiss her cheek. "Sorry. That was a LOT. I just have kept that all bottled up throughout the night while Bernie and I cleaned the Common Room..... How are you?"

As the days slowly moved along, Dahlia become more and more homesick. She really missed her mum and dad. Her crup too and all her cousins and the rest of her siblings. Gah! Sure she wasn't all alone here, four of her siblings and two cousins were here but it was still hard. And if she was this sad... how did those that had no family here feel?! It was all too much to think about and she needed to get away. Find somewhere that she could just... sit.

A bit of wandering around aimlessly on the grounds and she ended up here. Big bright blue eyes trained upwards at the HUGE treehouse. This was the coolest thing ever and she hadn't even gotten up there yet! Did she want to take the rope ladder up or the tall winding staircase?!

Quinn had been walking around the grounds—he was comfortable enough now that he didn't think anything would snatch him up into the forest, but he was still wary of the Neo-Alliance people—when he noticed the treehouse. Quinn wondered for a moment how such a large structure had gotten in the tree and was able to stay there, but then he remembered he was at magic school. So, magic. Obviously.

Quinn had been looking for a place to do his practice. He had read a couple of books on battle magic, more advanced than even his current year, and he figured that he had enough information to start practicing the basics, but... he wanted to make sure that it was somewhere that wouldn't be easily found. For the sake of himself and those he wanted to invite. If the Headmaster found out that they were practicing offensive spells, he could figure out that it was in preparation for a face-off with his people, if it was ever to happen. Which would be very, very bad. But the treehouse was huge, and very much out of the way. Quinn thought it might work well.

As Quinn approached the treehouse, he noticed Dahlia standing under it. "Hi, Dahlia. How's things?" He hadn't talked to her since the night in the common room, and a lot had happened since then. It seemed like a good time to catch up.

His embrace was welcome. It felt safe in here, but that didn't mean Aboli was letting her guard down. There were probably listening devices... magic...everywhere. "I know. I feel better with you, too. It is unfortunate we are not in the same house, sometimes, you know. But then...if you weren't a Gryffindor, I might not like you as much." There were some things about non-Slytherins that Aboli just found...attractive, yes?

It was a lot, and the kiss on her cheek had her feeling all fuihweifheirhf, but she just nodded. "They...are absolutely targeting you. You non-purebloods," She said softly. "Noah...Noah...promise me...please...you'll do whatever they say. To stay alive. This is no time to be Gryffindor-ing around. No time to fight back. It's just NOT. Say and do whatever. You know in your heart of hearts what you feel...just comply." Aboli cringed thinking what could happen if she were ever made to turn on any of them. She could stomach it if she had to, but what if it were Noah? She wasn't at all sure how she would cope. It would be...almost impossible for her.

"I wonder if we'll still have NEWTs. Think we will? I need to talk to Recard about University....did you hear about the owlery? No communication out so...I can't apply to Uni like I wanted," she sighed and slumped a little bit.

Dahlia turned her head towards the voice calling her name. A soft smile formed on her lips at seeing one of her housemates. "Hey, Quinn." His question was such a simple one but yet she had no idea how to truly go about answering it. Things were... strange. With those hooded guys around and the mean Headmaster Dude taking over, this wasn't what she had planned for her first year.

"Okay, I guess. Right now, anyway." There, she hadn't told a lie to him. "Being out here, away from all of that...," she waved a hand towards the castle, "the fresh air. I think I'm good. How are you doing?" He was really having a rough start here too. More so than she was.

Quinn nodded in understanding. "Yeah, it's much more peaceful out here than back there. Less, er, stress-inducing." Quinn gave a humorless chuckle.

Truthfully, he was doing better than the first couple days of school, but it still wasn't going swimmingly. He figured that would be the attitude for the rest of the term. "Yeah, I'm, uh... fine-ish. I don't think that I'm ever going to be 'good' so long as this is going on, but... fine-ish is pretty good, considering," he shrugged, then looked up at the treehouse. "Were you going up? I was planning to as well, so... we could look around together?" Quinn eyed the stairs and the rope. "That's... a long way up, huh..?"

Less stress-inducing. That was one way to look at it. "Definitely. Anywhere away from 'them' is good. I don't care where it is as long as 'they' aren't there." As she said the words 'them' and 'they' her voice had dropped to a whisper. The last thing she needed was to be overheard.

"Mm' fair point. I don't really think any of us are going to be all that good but I'd rather say that than 'stink-ish'." She sighed softly. So far this year wasn't going at all like planned. Her typical hyper bubbly self was more subdued. "Uh-huh," She once more turned her gaze up towards the treehouse. "Sure. Beats being all alone. Yeah, but that's what's supposed to make it fun. Being up really high and getting to see everything below from a new view point." She gave him a very small smile.

"Want to take the stairs or the rope ladder?" In her opinion the rope ladder looked like it could be entertaining.

Dahlia's whispering when referring to the Alliance made Quinn shudder. They had everyone at school gripped with fear, didn't they? He nodded.

Quinn laughed a bit at 'stink-ish'. It sounded funny, even though it wasn't really that nice of a word. He looked up at the treehouse. It probably would be pretty from up there, but getting up there would be... an experience. The ladder didn't seem that secure, but the steps would probably hurt his legs by the time he got up there. He tried to return her smile, but it probably looked a little squeamish. But Quinn really wanted to get up there.

He could see that Dahlia was particularly eyeing the ladder, and he didn't want to disappoint. "Uh, we... we can use the ladder, if you'd like," Quinn said, making his way over.

Hearing Quinn's laughed was refreshing and it made her smile quite a bit more. The were plenty of other words she could've used but that one always seemed to get a laugh or at the very least a smile. Just as it had done right now.

Bouncing every so slight on the balls of her feet, Lia cast a quick sideways glance over at Quinn. He didn't seem all that thrilled with the use of the rope ladder but he had okay'ed it anyhow. Interesting. He would rather do something that didn't sit well with him then take the stairs. Dahlia like that. "Cool. I'll go first if you want? Or we can climb up together? Stay side-by-side?" They both were small enough that it should work, right?

Without wasting another second, she walked over to the rope ladder and grabbed hold of it. "Ready?" Flashing him a warm smile, she put her foot onto one of the ropes and reached her hand up to grab hold of the rope above her head. Okay, so the rope ladder swayed a little, that was ummm... different.

Dahlia seemed really excited to be going up the rope ladder, and Quinn didn't want to ruin that. He stepped up to the ladder next to her, looking up as it swayed. "Um... we can go up together if you'd like, but... will it be able to hold both of us on the same rung..?" He thought this was a fair question, given they would be going up a fairly long and swaying rope ladder, and falling from high up didn't seem very pleasant. Quinn, of course, didn't know about the charms on the treehouse that allowed for a slower, softer fall, so he was expecting certain doom if something were to happen.

If Quinn had thought this was her being excited he hadn't a clue about how she could really get. This was nothing. Wait for him to see her on a sugar high or when she was having an amazing day. Or when that evil dude and his minions were gone! That would be some real excitement.

"Erm, possibly?" She truly had no idea if it would hold them both or not. "There's only one sure fire way to find out, right?" Dahlia gave him an encouraging smile and a nod of her head. "If it makes you feel better I can stay a rung or two ahead of you.. unless you'd rather be ahead of me?" Either way she didn't care who went first. As long as they made it to the top!

Even as she was speaking to him she had began to make the journey towards the top of the rope ladder, pausing briefly whenever she thought it was swaying a little to much. It wasn't so much that she was afraid of falling because she wasn't, she had fallen from a tree before but that was a story for another day. She was looking out for her friend, if he got hurt because of her, well... that wouldn't be good.

She was looking out for her friend, if he got hurt because of her, well... that wouldn't be good.
"Uh, well I guess..." Quinn stopped to think about it. Wasn't the rule usually ladies first? But was ladder etiquette different? He felt like it was, because if a girl was wearing a skirt or a dress she should be under the boy, right? Would that still apply if the girl was wearing pants? "Uh, maybe I should—" Quinn looked back at her to give her an answer, but.. "Oh. You've already started. Well..."

Quinn figured it was safer to go one by one anyway, so this was a fine outcome. Quinn started climbing up the ladder, but he did so cautiously, at a much slower pace than Dahlia. "Don't look down, don't look down..." he muttered to himself as he climbed. Quinn was so focused on not looking down that his foot missed a rung on the ladder, which caused him to panic and miss the rung with his hand because he's a mess. Quinn slipped off the ladder, falling backwards.

"WAAH—"

Quinn's scream from his initial shock of falling was cut short when he realized that he wasn't actually falling very fast. It was really peaceful, actually. He swiveled his head around to look out at the grounds. He quite liked this. He thought to talk to the groundskeeper and learn what charms they'd placed here. "Oh. Huh. Neat."

Was it her or did he sound more and more skeptical as the minutes passed? Dahlia wasn't one of those girls that insisted on the 'girls first' rule. Nope, she was all for 'who wanted to go first, can' rule. Being she wasn't nearly as nervous about climbing the rope ladder as Quinn had seemed to be, she didn't mind going ahead of him or waiting for him to pass her and let him climb up first. "Hm? Maybe you should, what?"

Dahlia paused her climbing to remain where she was, maybe just about half of the way up. "I can wait right here for you." Which is what she was going to do when she glanced down and saw that he wasn't as close behind her as she had thought. From where she was and how his body had blocked where his feet might be, Lia hadn't noticed his foot miss a rung but she DID see his hand miss one.

"Quinn!" she shouted at the same moment he did, her eyes widening in fear. He was falling and it was all her fault! She should've stayed behind him... better yet... insisted they took the stairs! Her heart was racing as fast as her mind and she had already begun to climb back down before even realizing that he hadn't hit the ground as expected.

Nope. Was he... floating? Dahlia blinked and used a hand to rub at her eyes making sure she wasn't seeing things. Still gripping the rope ladder with one hand, her body weight resting against it. "Cool! Whoever built this must have really thought ahead and placed protective charms on everything." Very smart. Thank you, whoever had thought ahead and done that!

Quinn was too focused on trying not to fall before he fell that he didn't actually hear anything she was saying to him.

He relaxed once he was floating and smiled up at Dahlia. "Yeah! This is really nice, honestly. I guess I was worried for nothing..." Quinn laughed awkwardly. He stuck a hand out and grabbed the rope ladder, pulling himself back onto it.

"Well, it's alright now, then. You can keep going, I'll be fine!" Quinn said as he started climbing back up the ladder. Knowing now that he couldn't actually fall and die, he started climbing at a regular pace.

Everything before Quinn's fall, no longer mattered. The only thing that was important right now was that he was in one piece and hadn't even hit the ground. All was well.

Dahlia grinned down at him. "Worrying is natural when you're unsure of what the outcome can be. At least now we know we're safe, hm?" If one of them were to fall they would be fine. One less thing to worry over.

"I'll meet you at the top then!" Lia called down to him. Turning her attention back onto climbing the top was within reach in a matter of no time at all. Pulling herself up over the ledge and onto the platform, she stood up and watched Quinn climbing up. "You got this, Quinn!"

Quinn smiled. He always felt like he worried too much, but Lia didn't seem to mind. It made him happy.

Quinn climbed up to the top after Dahlia. Her encouragement spurred him on, and he made it up quicker than he anticipated. After pulling himself onto the platform, he gave a small "Woot!" and laughed a bit. "Well, that wasn't so bad."

Quinn looked at the treehouse. It was more impressive up close than from the ground; it actually looked like a small castle. "A lot bigger than a regular treehouse. Lots of rooms, huh?" Quinn made his way inside.

With a family as large as hers, knows how important it is to let people be who they are. Everyone reacted differently and felt differently about things. So if he was a worrier, that was A-okay with her. Perhaps her being a bit more laid back at times and adventurous would balance that out.

Lia would've held her hand out to help him up onto the platform but there was no need to. With Quinn now standing beside her, the Ravenclaw allowed herself to really take in this treehouse and how HUGE it truly was. Much larger then it looked from the ground. "Yeah, now that we know a fall won't land us in the hospital wing." She grinned over at him lightly.

"This is awesome. It would make a great place for parties or study sessions." Lots of open space and fresh air. Dahlia followed alongside him from room to room, taking everything in. "I think I'm going to be coming here a lot." In case he ever wanted to find here, looking here might be a good place to start.

Quinn blushed a bit at her joke and laughed. "Yeah..." It was embarrassing looking back on it, but it was kinda funny, too.

Quinn looked around at the spacious rooms, and in the tower and up at the loft. "Yeah, I think so too." This would be perfect for his practice sessions. Quinn thought about inviting Dahlia, but he didn't want to start off with too many people. Only the two people he was closest to, Atlas and Eden. That way it wouldn't be as dangerous—less people to know, less ways for it to get out, less people to be hurt for knowing. Though he hoped that, even if they were found out, they could play it off as innocent practice for classes rather than practice in case of a rebellion. "I really like it up here, honestly, so I might come up here, too. Plus, that floating stuff was kind of fun. Maybe I'll just come up here so I can float back down again," he giggled.

Dahlia hadn't meant to make him blush but the hint of pink color on his cheeks was nice. Definitely a plus and she would take it anytime over tears. "Now you can say that you've fallen from a treehouse and didn't get hurt." No one really had to know he was caught by magic and safely lowered to the ground.

The more Lia looked around, the more she liked it up here. This would make a great hideaway spot when she needed time to herself. "We can celebrate our birthdays up here. A little bit of enjoyment away from all of...that." She waved a hand in the direction of the castle. Any other reasons for being up here would remain unspoken, chances were low that she would use this spot for practicing though. Too much damage could happen should a spell go wrong.

Lia smiled at him. "It did sorta look like fun. What did it feel like?"

Quinn nodded. "My Muggle friend would get a kick out of that one. No broken bones for me!" He thought about Mari and how she was doing in school without him. Probably better than he was, in any case.

Quinn's eyes lit up. "We could totally celebrate birthdays here! My birthday is in July, so we couldn't celebrate mine, but definitely our other friends! I could bake a cake!" He thought about his previous attempts at baking—they hadn't gone super well, but the more recent ones weren't inedible, at least. "A-as long as I don't burn it..."

Quinn thought for a moment. "You know that feeling when you're on a rollercoaster, and right before a big drop you lift up in your seat and you get butterflies in your stomach? It was kinda like that, but it wasn't as exciting. It was more peaceful."

There were some things about non-Slytherins that Aboli just found...attractive, yes?

It was a lot, and the kiss on her cheek had her feeling all fuihweifheirhf, but she just nodded. "They...are absolutely targeting you. You non-purebloods," She said softly. "Noah...Noah...promise me...please...you'll do whatever they say. To stay alive. This is no time to be Gryffindor-ing around. No time to fight back. It's just NOT. Say and do whatever. You know in your heart of hearts what you feel...just comply." Aboli cringed thinking what could happen if she were ever made to turn on any of them. She could stomach it if she had to, but what if it were Noah? She wasn't at all sure how she would cope. It would be...almost impossible for her.

"I wonder if we'll still have NEWTs. Think we will? I need to talk to Recard about University....did you hear about the owlery? No communication out so...I can't apply to Uni like I wanted," she sighed and slumped a little bit.
Ok. He was smiling a lot. He probably had the silliest grin on his face when Aboli confessed that she felt so safe with him. He liked being able to protect her. He nodded, agreeing with her about how unfortunate it was for them not to be in the same house. It would have been nice to be in the same house because they could have had the Common Room as an area that they could share but they would have to make it work. Noah fake! gasped at her comment. "You only like me because I'm a GRYFFINDOR?? WHAT! HOW RUDE!" he teased, sticking his tongue out at her. He ran a hand through his hair, pretending to be quite distraught before a smirk graced his lips. Heh. "Let me guess .... you're type is non-Slytherins... So I was right to set you up with Minjae.... And... What house was Mr. Christian in again... hmmm?" Despite their current sour situation, Noah was feeling quite upbeat in this moment.

Oh. She was VERY worried about him. He listened to her, nodding. He knew she was right and if she had seen what happened in the Gryffindor Common Room last night then.... Yeah... Talk of rebellion and stealing dessert had transpired... He reached for her hand, taking it in his own and sighed. "Don't worry. I won't be so openly.... Gryffindor around. And I agree we should be safe and compliant," he nodded his head, just in case someone was listening. He gave her a different look which he hoped to telegraph that he would be careful but he wouldn't go on with everything completely. They'd have to be safe. "But... if anyone comes near you or lays a hand on you... they'll have to deal with me." He'd risk it if they threatened her... Her and his family and his friends.

He nodded at her question about NEWTS. "I think we may. I don't think that they intend to stop our education... I think they'll change its course slightly to exclude some subjects and embellish others... What's that quote about history again? History's written by the winners or something like that?" He paused, frowning. "No. That's not quite the quote I'm thinking of...." But the subject of University was exciting and terrifying to him. He... He hadn't thought much about university. Her question about the state of the Owlery perplexed him. He hadn't heard the news yet. He frowned. Merlin. Of course, they'd cut off the Owlery too. Firepalces, owls - no communication to the outside world."Did they destroy it? Are the owls still... alive?"

He knew not being able to apply to university would have been nerve-wracking to Aboli. She was always so focused on the future and just aceing everything. She was a rockstar when it came to academics. Brilliant, beautiful, and just perfect in her own Aboli way. "Maybe we'll be able to apply but it'll have to go through the new Hogwarts Administration? If not, we can just take a gap year and apply next year to university...."

He gave her a different look which he hoped to telegraph that he would be careful but he wouldn't go on with everything completely. They'd have to be safe. "But... if anyone comes near you or lays a hand on you... they'll have to deal with me." He'd risk it if they threatened her... Her and his family and his friends.

He nodded at her question about NEWTS. "I think we may. I don't think that they intend to stop our education... I think they'll change its course slightly to exclude some subjects and embellish others... What's that quote about history again? History's written by the winners or something like that?" He paused, frowning. "No. That's not quite the quote I'm thinking of...." But the subject of University was exciting and terrifying to him. He... He hadn't thought much about university. Her question about the state of the Owlery perplexed him. He hadn't heard the news yet. He frowned. Merlin. Of course, they'd cut off the Owlery too. Firepalces, owls - no communication to the outside world."Did they destroy it? Are the owls still... alive?"

He knew not being able to apply to university would have been nerve-wracking to Aboli. She was always so focused on the future and just aceing everything. She was a rockstar when it came to academics. Brilliant, beautiful, and just perfect in her own Aboli way. "Maybe we'll be able to apply but it'll have to go through the new Hogwarts Administration? If not, we can just take a gap year and apply next year to university...."
Noah's dramatic antics only got him a snort from Aboli. "You guessed it. Oh nooOOoo. Whatever will I do now that you know my secret?" she said veeeeery dryly as she smirked in his direction. Her cheeks DID turn a deep scarlet color when he mentioned Christian because she felt like Noah would never stop bringing up her former conquest. "Christian is a Ravenclaw," she reminded him before poking his shoulder pretty hard. "But I don't LIKE Christian like that anymore, Noah. So stop. I like YOU like that. We've been over this." She felt like she was the reason he felt so compared to Christian, though. After all, it was she who had told Noah it was because he wasn't like Christian that she didn't like him like that. And at the time, she had thought that was true! But things had changed, hadn't they?

Deal with him? Aboli gave him a look. "Firstly, I can handle myself. Secondly, do not lose a hair on your head over me. Worry about yourself." Not that Aboli was good at taking this advice. The only reason she was so high on her own list was because she felt like she owed it to the littles and to her friends to survive. She was better ALIVE than DEAD, yeah? Well, so was Noah. "You just have to be extra careful because of your muggle-born-ness, Noah, okay? SO please...please be careful." And as he said, no 'Gryffindoring'. No OVERLY doing so.

"The victors." She finished his statement for him. "History is written by the victors. That's why so much British history makes us look like the good guys even though...you know colonization and whatnot," she plucked her gloves off to rub them together. "But you're not wrong....and...maybe they WILL let us finish education stuff." Her shoulders slumped once again as she let out a deep sigh. "They...just aren't there. Don't know what happened to them. I...I am hoping they're....just elsewhere," her voice was hardly above a whisper now that she was speaking of the animals. It was hard to think that they might be....dead. She kept her voice steady, though, because she didn't want it to quiver in emotion. Aboli HAD to be strong and steady.

Hmm.

A gap year had definitely crossed her mind. A gap year with Noah, however, had not. Now that sounded delightful. "Where would we go? If we took this hypothetical gap year?" A smile again graced her lips before she took his hand in hers, gloveless, and squeezed.
