Default The Courtyard


Image Credit: Felixir

Accessible from the castle via the Clock Tower, the courtyard is both a throughway, leading to the wooden bridge which spans the nearby ravine, and a popular area of the grounds in its own right.

Many students spend their free time here outside of classes, particularly during break or lunch. Between lessons, this area is usually crowded with students catching up with their friends, getting in a round of gobstones, or lingering under the pear tree while they wait to head to their next class. A covered cloister surrounds the paved courtyard, and stone benches are spaced throughout the covered area, as well as dotted around the courtyard itself. Much of the architecture is in the gothic style, from the arches to the gargoyle parapets.

In the middle of the courtyard is an ancient fountain flanked by stone eagle sculptures, their features somewhat worn away by the elements over the years. Feel free to make a wish and toss a coin into the fountain, but be aware that once it's gone, it's gone. Any attempts to retrieve it will be unsuccessful, as the coin will keep magically sinking out of reach. Do try to jump into the fountain; staff will take pains to rescue you, but they're unlikely to be very impressed.

An addition to the courtyard as of 2104 is a bronze plaque, hanging on a restored pillar, its cracks and missing pieces clearly visible to those who take a good look. Both the pillar and its commemorative feature have now been charmed to prevent theft. The plaque reads:

Quote:
This marks the location of the duel to the death between the Neo-Alliance leader, Lucien Rosier, and the British Minister for Magic, Charles Hollingberry, which resulted in Rosier's death. Long Live Hollingberry! May 10, 2104.

Wanting to spend as much time outside as possible, whenever possible, Dahlia was currently taking up residence on one of the many benches in the courtyard. This meant she was laying on her stomach across it, feet waving back and forth in the air, chin resting in her hands as she hand her elbows resting on the bench, a book open in front of her. Sir Frederik was asleep on her back, probably tangled up somewhere in her long hair.

Completely lost in the aspects of her book, randomly highlighting certain things with a bright pink highlighter. Occasionally she would tap it against the side of the book or bench in a moment of thought before highlighting something else or turning the page.

Daniel arrived at the courtyard holding a paper bag filled with chocolate chip cookies made by the Elves after taking a detour to the kitchens in the dungeon. He ate a cookie as he walked over to one of the benches and sat down on the bench next to where Dahlia was on her stomach.

Wasn't that extremely uncomfortable?

As he continued to eat, he looked curiously at the book, which she was highlighting with a bright pink highlighter. "Wha aw u rheeding?" he questioned with his mouth full which translated to 'what are you reading?' He took another cookie and placed the bag on the bench next to him. "Doesn't that position hurt your neck?" Also where was that adorable Pygmy Puff of hers? What was its name again? Sir Pudding the second?

Lia lifted her gaze slightly from the page she was reading when a shadow crossed over it briefly. One cast by someone walking past. Daniel. As he didn't say anything to her right away, she didn't either, returning to reading.

Moments later for her attention to be captured again, only this time by muffled words she barely managed to make out. Somewhat awkwardly lifts the book for him to see that it wasn't necessarily a book but more a bunch of notes that had been compiled into a book of sorts.. for safe keeping. "It has my important things in it.. like the stuff I'm interested and the areas of magic I need to work on.. spells I'm learning." It had tons and tons of information.

"Nope, I'm used to it." Lia flashed him a quick smile. This was always how she had laid since a small child unless she was inside and could lounge on a couch or arm chair. As for Sir Frederik he was still sound asleep on her back.

Was it weird to worry about the person you were kissing, when you were only kissing because it was nice and not because you like-liked each other and you weren't exclusively kissing and the person you were kissing like-liked someone else?

Probably, but Ignacio would happily be weird if that was the case. Besides, him and Lumi were friends, after all. Or at least, he thought so. Either way, he'd been a little worried about her ever since her sickness during the first week of term, and so whilst his loitering around the Courtyard may have looked natural (even though it absolutely didn't), he was kind of hoping to run into her, if she came outside to practice tennis.

Just to check on her, you know? Make sure she wasn't sick again.

She did not think the arrangement they had was weird. It made sense. It had started off as a favour to each other and they absolutely were now friends. But it was trueÖ she did like-like someone else. She like-liked that someone else long before she and Ignacio had ever kissed or had their learning-to-kiss agreement. And she had like-liked them a stupid amount when sheíd kissed Ig on the train. But right now she was just Lumi and Lumi was making it through each day (as quickly as she could), engrossing herself in tennis practice, studying and studying. The good stuff.

Lumi Kolzer was predictable. She moved through the castle and out to the courtyard, racket bag hanging from one shoulder, a bucket of balls in one hand and a bottle of water in the other.

Time to continue learning exactly how to play on her own all over again.

Daniel looked at the stack of notes Dahlia had lifted for him to see before he reached inside of the paper bag for another cookie. It was almost empty by now. "You should bind them together" He had a notebook like that as well and he wished he had it with him so that they could compare notes. Perhaps she had thoughts and goals that he could implement in his notebook and vice versa.

Daniel frowned as he reached for another chocolate chip cookie and his hand reached the bottom of the paper bag but his fingers did not grasp a cookie. He took his hand out and looked inside, only to discover that he had already eaten everything.

With a deep sigh, he returned his gaze to Dahlia and shrugged. "To each their own, i suppose" he replied. When he read and took notes, he had to sit up straight.

He smiled slightly as he noticed Sir Frederik aka Sir Pudding on her back. It wasn't a broad smile, more like that the corners of his mouth lifted slightly. "How long have you had that Pygmy Puff?"

Adam was not TOO worried about OWLs but...a little worried. Perhaps he was the PROPER amount of worried. So he decided to do a little bit of studying in his free time today - he needed a break from drawing anyways, his eyes were starting to go cross from staring at sketches for so long. So naturally reading small text was a great idea, right?

The air outside had a slight chill to it, but nothing too awful. He was wearing his hoodie and had his Gryffindor scarf wrapped around him as he lounged on one of the brick walls, staring up at his book and also using it to block the sun from his eyes. MULTI-TASKING.

Delilah was becoming somewhat of a fan of the Hogwarts grounds. Even though she was still making friends and figuring out who everybody was, she found that going outside where everybody else seemed to be was one of her favorite things to do. So just as she had done almost every day this past week, she headed back outside. She was actually heading toward the wooden bridge when she hesitated in the courtyard.

She hadn't realized that she'd hesitated right in front of some older boy. Ohh, she knew him! She thought his name might be Adam, but she wasn't sure. She'd only overheard it in the common room. What in the name of Godric Gryffindor was he doing anyway? Bird watching? Studying? She had just decided not to bother him, when a slight wind came along and ripped her loosely-tied scarf right off her neck. It blew right in the direction of Adam's face, although she cringed and squeezed her eyes shut, so she couldn't know for sure. Ughhh. Sorry, dude.

This. THIS looked a good spot for reading.

Aiden laid his blanket very carefully down upon the grass, just like he was having a picnic. It was the same blanket he slept with at night that he had lugged out from Hufflepuff common room. In one arm he had Wally, his teddy bear. In the other arm he had a book called "The little hippogriff that wanted to fly". It was a small wizarding children's book with pictures on every page and a cool creature on the cover that Aiden hadn't seen before until he'd seen it looking at him from the cover at the Hogwarts library. After meeting the pygmy puffs at the Diagon Alley place he wanted to know everything about EVERY kind of magic creature.

Aiden was proud of himself, as he got the blanket all straightened out on the ground. He had done it all by himself, even though he had wanted help from a grown-up. Really he just wanted to be NEAR a grown-up. He was SUPPOSED to have a grown-up. He wasn't supposed to be alone. But nobody at school had understood that. His Mommy was NOT going to be happy about this. But that was why Aiden had chosen to go OUTSIDE instead of INSIDE because for some reason outside he felt less alone.

The small boy flopped himself down onto the blanket, and made sure Wally was nestled safe at his side. It was bright and sunny out, but that was just perfect for reading.

This is where he would lie, and read until he got sleepy, then he would nap on the grounds in the sunlight, then go inside and ask where he could get an afternoon snack. This was the schedule of things at home. Lunch at 12, Nap at two, Snack at four, Supper at six. And Aiden wanted to keep things just like that. He HAD to keep things just like that. Because he missed his home more than just about anything. And the only way he could get by was if he kept to his schedule (of just about everything besides teeth brushing, which Aiden had forgotten all about doing without supervision)

So the boy lay down and began to read.

Because he missed his home more than just about anything. And the only way he could get by was if he kept to his schedule (of just about everything besides teeth brushing, which Aiden had forgotten all about doing without supervision)

So the boy lay down and began to read.
Atlas had already been out here for a bit with a couple of old pocket watches and typewriter. Both were items he had found in storage and broom closets around the castle, covered in dust and discarded by time, and was leisurely deconstructing each with his handy dandy little screwdriver kit. He was currently working on removing each key from the keyboard when there was a shadow cast over his little work spot that was not cast by the branches and leaves on the pear tree. Straightening his hunched shoulders, the blonde looked around and spotted a newcomer to the courtyard laying out a blanket.

The Gryffindor watched for a bit, still twisting his screwdriver on the section he was working on, and squinted a bit to try and make out what sort of book the first year had in their possession. Though he was more intent on looking at the teddy bear he had brought with him. Curious. He sure hoped no one honed in on that and made him feel uncomfortable about it - which tended to be the case in his own experience. Though with Atlas that came more from his opinions and stances rather than possessions. Unless you counted his familiar, which he did not since she was not a thing.

"Mum used to read me that one," he found himself saying, his thoughts distracted by his gaze as it drifted back to the book cover and the words slipping out suddenly.

Also, hello. Maybe. If he remembered to swing back around and greet the Hufflepuff.

For now his attention went back to the keyboard and his successful retrieval of the 'Y' key. He really liked the round shape of each piece and how circular keys forced you to be more precise with your fingers' aim. Not that he was actually using this keyboard. At least not in the traditional manner.

Huh? Did Aiden hear a voice?

Aiden looked up, wondering if he heard what he thought he did. It sounded like it had come from a boy that was looking at him for a moment, but when Aiden looked back his eyes were already gone, looking down at the funny little thing he was typing on.

Hm...

After a moment's thinking, Aiden got up again and tugged his blanket over, closer to the curious boy. It was harder than it looked to straighten out a blanket while carrying a bear and a book, but Aiden managed it. He wanted the blanket to lie on. Not JUST cause it was like a picnic. Really the blanket seemed like a nice safe space to stay. Everything at Hogwarts was BIG, but the blanket was small, and Aiden liked places that were small, so this would just be HIS spot, and HIS much smaller courtyard.

And now the blanket had moved much closer to the curious boy with the funny device.

Then Aiden plopped himself down onto his tummy and propped himself up on his elbows, staring up at the older boy, his book beside him on one side and Wally on the other, all on the blanket.

"What did you say?" Aiden asked him.

You know what he needed? He needed one of those monocle things...the ones with multiple lens that could magnify an object. Unchiul Andrei had one of those that he used all the time when tinkering on something or other and Atlas had always admired it. Of course, at first, he had thought it was just some sort of impractical decoration that made his eye look huge. It had not crossed his young mind that it was not something meant to be useful for the person looking at the wearer. Imagination running rampant and such. But having one of those right now would be SUPER handy because this particular screw was like...really really tiny and he had not anticipated there being such tiny bits to deal wi---

"Huh?" His voice was much MUCH louder than was necessary, but it needed to be to entirely pull him from his focus on what remained of the keyboard in in his hand. His eyes also took a moment to readjust from looking at something super close up and small to more of a landscape view. Ish. Normal sight versus itty bitty sight. A sight which consisted of a first year, the one he had observed situated several yards THAT way with his blanket, teddy bear and...oh the book! "Oh, yeah." Atlas stretched his legs forward for a change in position since he had been hunched over for a while now. "That book." Cue pointing with the hand that had the screwdriver in it - which meant that his index finger and the tip of the driver were now pointed at the book. "Mum used to read it to me when I was little too. Me and my brother. She would sneak it in before dad started reading textbooks on quantum mechanics or something or other to us."

"Realllly?" Aiden asked in fascination. That boy's mum had read that to HIM, even though it was a magic book that you could only find at magic libraries and maybe magic stores. It was so weird that other kids knew all about hippogriffs before they were eleven, which is when Aiden learned. "Do you like it?" he asked, studying the cover again. It seemed like it was gonna be a really good one, like the kinda book HIS Mum would read to him at bedtime. He COULD read chapter books thank you very much, but he just LIKED picture books best. He liked looking at the pictures just as much as reading the book, so chapter books were kinda like only half a book even if they were bigger.

"Quantuh mechanics?" Aiden repeated, squinting up at the older boy. What was quantuh mechanics? "Don't they fix cars?" Aiden asked, very confused. Why would they be reading textbooks about that?

There was something even more important though. "What's that?" Aiden asked, pointing at the thingy that the other boy was looking at. "Whatcha doing?" he asked, very very very curious. So curious he forgot to be scared. He wanted to take a closer look, but he also didn't want to leave the safety of his blanket now that he'd laid down on it, so he just pointed and waited for the older boy to tell him.

But right now she was just Lumi and Lumi was making it through each day (as quickly as she could), engrossing herself in tennis practice, studying and studying. The good stuff.

Lumi Kolzer was predictable. She moved through the castle and out to the courtyard, racket bag hanging from one shoulder, a bucket of balls in one hand and a bottle of water in the other.

Time to continue learning exactly how to play on her own all over again.
Friends were great, really, and friends you kissed were quickly becoming his favourite kind, even if the only person in that category was the girl he was waiting for. That wasn't the only reason he liked hanging out with Lumi, though, even if that was how it had started.

When Lumi appeared, Ignacio was spinning his frisbee on one finger. He immediately stopped when he spotted her, fumbling to catch the disk as it stilled.

"Lumi!" he called out, hurrying towards her. "Lumi, hi," he said again when he reached her. He glanced down at her tennis gear and grinned. "You need someone to play with? Against?" She'd have to teach him, of course, but Ignacio was a fast learner!

Perhaps she had thoughts and goals that he could implement in his notebook and vice versa.

Daniel frowned as he reached for another chocolate chip cookie and his hand reached the bottom of the paper bag but his fingers did not grasp a cookie. He took his hand out and looked inside, only to discover that he had already eaten everything.

With a deep sigh, he returned his gaze to Dahlia and shrugged. "To each their own, i suppose" he replied. When he read and took notes, he had to sit up straight.

He smiled slightly as he noticed Sir Frederik aka Sir Pudding on her back. It wasn't a broad smile, more like that the corners of his mouth lifted slightly. "How long have you had that Pygmy Puff?"
"Mm, it will be once I'm finished with this.." She liked to have her notes a specific way before putting them into her notebook. There was a whole lot of information held inside her notebook so she was very particular about how it was all stored away. "Do you have a notebook?" Lia glanced over at him curiously wondering what all he might write down inside of it if he did. Did they share similar interests?

Hearing him sigh but not really knowing the cause of it, she once more looked over at him. "Something the matter?"

A bright smile tugged at her lips at the mention of Sir Frederik. "Over ten years now." He was getting up there in age and not doing so well lately but he was still the best Pygmy Puff ever.

Atlas really was not sure what all he had said to warrant such a response, but as he took a moment to pause and consider it he did come to the realization that maybe...just maaaaaaaaybe...this first year was looking for a bit of comradery or at least something familiar in someone else. It was a sentiment Atlas knew well and dwelled on often whenever he thought about what it was like during the war and not being understood and especially so in the aftermath of it all. But...that was not a conversation he was going to start now. "It's not my favorite...but I liked it well enough. It's not really my thing anymore though."

Eyes settling back on his almost completely deconstructed keyboard, the Gryffindor removed a few more keys with relative easy since he had already loosened the other bips and bobs. "Cars?" He had not been paying full attention while trying to get his driver into the right little slot. "What? No. No Cars. Quantum mechanics...the...uh..." His eyes darted to the teddy bear for a moment. "...the study of of the universe works...on a really really really really really really really REALLY really really small scale." He had the impression that this kid did not know what an atom was. "It's science."

Atlas did not mind answering questions, especially about things he knew a lot about, because it made him feel important. "Oh, this? Just some junk I've found laying around the school that I am taking apart for their parts."

"Oh...." Aiden said. It made him a little sad that the other boy didn't like the book anymore, but Aiden didn't really know why. It was ok, though, because the whatever-it-was in the other boy's lap had distracted him fully.

"Ohhhhh science,"
Aiden said, nodding with understanding. He knew about THAT. Not a lot but he knew what it WAS. He had learned about all the types of animals and he'd learned about outer space and well, lots of other things but not anything called 'quantuh mechanics'. But it was about really really really really really really really REALLY small things in the universe, and probably that meant even smaller than a blade of grass. That was really really small but not really really really really really really REALLY small. It probably meant smaller than even an ant, and though the first-year had no idea what an atom was, somehow what the older boy had said had made sense to him.

The boy wasn't USING the machine thingy though, he was just taking it APART. Wasn't that like breaking it on purpose?

"What do you need parts for?" Aiden asked, staring up at the other boy in some fascination, with a look that said that the young boy had fully found a new focus besides his book. Just about everybody at school had been fascinating Aiden. He'd never met so many people before, and yeah some of them were scary, but some were nice and some like this boy knew about really interesting things. Nobody had ever taught Aiden that some people didn't like to be peppered with questions. His mother had had endless patience. Really Aiden didn't know anything about talking to people at all.

It was a kids book...and he was a TEENAGER now. He was too grown up for such things just not too grown up for his Pluto the planet plushie. In any case though, Atlas simply nodded in response to both 'oh's and figured there was little more needed said on either topic - particularly quantum mechanics which would require some props among other things to be able to illustrate things for the first year. Which, well, was sort of the only way that Atlas could really tolerate the subjects. If he felt in a power position, he was much less resistant to a lot of things.

Setting a few more pieces aside, the blonde moved to the last row of keys left to dismantle and adjusted his monocle again - several more lenses falling into place as he magnified as necessary. "I just like taking things apart," he shrugged lightly. "See how they work...but I rarely put things back together after. Keep the parts for robotics or metal charming or metallurgy."

Lumi was also the only Lumi Ignacio knew, and he was the only Ignacio he knew! So, unless Lumi knew another Ignacio that happened to be in the courtyard (who happened to be stood next to or behind him), it was safe to assume she was smiling at him. He wouldn't delve into the idea that there was another Ignacio nearby and that Lumi had chosen to greet them instead, for it would probably damage his ego if he thought about it too hard.

That, or he'd end up with a headache.

"Frisbee is pretty simple, so I'm not sure there's much to teach," he admitted, rubbing one of his cheeks. "But of course I'll try." He grinned then, throwing the frisbee from one hand to another. "It's hard to play Ultimate without a team, but sometimes I do charm it to randomly change direction." It made for a more interesting solo game.

"Wouldn't it have been more convenient to use multiple notebooks instead of loose notes?" he asked, his gaze drawn to the notes scattered around in front of her.

When she asked if he had a notebook, he nodded. "Of course" he replied. "Mostly class notes, but lately i've been doing research and taking notes on Animagi's and wandless magic" he explained. Maya had mentioned wandless magic to him once and he had become intrigued.

"What? Oh, nothing important" it was just him having eaten his chocolate chip cookies without realizing he had done it. Perhaps he should tell the House Elves to give him a bigger bag next time?

"More than ten years?" Daniel was taken aback by that. It was difficult to fathom such a small creature being older than a handful of years. "How old can they get?"

"Perhaps, if you're the type that likes having multiple notebooks. I prefer having all my notes in one easy to access place." It took a little bit of work getting it all where she wanted it to be at times but the end result was what mattered.

Did he just say he was interested in Animagi and wandless magic?!?! Dahlia promptly pushed all of her papers together into a neat pile and capped her highlighter setting it down on top of all of her notes. Bright blue eyes were now on him, he had her full attention. "Really?" These were two bits of magic that she had been interested in for YEARS. Both that she had been taking notes and studying for just as long. "What is it that you want to know about those particular topics?"

Huh? Erm.. well okay then. She lifted one of her shoulders in a slight shrug.

"Uh-huh." Why did everyone always seem so surprised by that little bit of information about Sir Frederik? Didn't anyone know anything about pygmy puffs? His astonishment was one thing but it was the next question that always got to her, it was the one thing she absolutely dreaded thinking about. A tiny sigh escaped her lips and a small hint of sadness filled her eyes. "I haven't really heard of them living much longer than this..."

Aiden kept himself propped up and continued staring at the older boy with fascination.

Aiden asked. This boy seemed like he really knew a lot. But was he really gonna break that thing and not put it back together? That seemed kind of like leaving all your toys out on the floor or spilling something and leaving before telling your mum so she can clean it.

"So can you see it...?" Aiden asked. "How it works?" He HAD said that was why he took it apart. "And can ya really make a ROBOT out of it?" he asked, since he knew that's what 'robotics' meant.

"And what's that?" he asked, pointing up at the funny little glass thingy that the boy had in his eye. It SEEMED like glasses, but not REALLY cause it was only one side. He just had so many questions about everything. Maybe this boy was somebody who had a whole lot of answers.

Pumping his fist as he finished his deconstruction effort, FINALLY, Atlas' head swung back around and looked at the younger student with the monocle still in front of his left eye...which then massively enlarged it from the perspective of the Hufflepuff and surely gave the blonde a rather comical appearance. He would have minded all that much, probably, were the bloke to laugh at his appearance. After all, HE (meaning one Atlas Flamsteed) was not the one walking around with a teddy bear and reading books meant for toddlers. "Metal charming? Or metallurgy? They're two different things though do overlap conceptually," he replied while straightening his posture, feeling terribly important that he was being asked so many questions. "Metallurgy is the art and science of extracting metals from their ores and modifying the metals for use....whereas metal charming is modification by means of imbuing metalcraft with certain magical properties via Charms. Like with a sneakoscope." Atlas supposed that mentioning golden snitches was the more popular and palatable explanation, but the Gryffindor felt that quidditch was rather overrated.

"Mmhmm," he nodded casually...though not without his chest inflating a bit at the apparent awestruck-ness of his younger companion. Turning his attention back to his bag for now, Atlas pulled out a little box to begin fitting pieces into based on function, shape, and size before glancing back at the other boy in confusion for a couple of beats before sorting out what was being asked about. "Oh, this," he chuckled with the addition of a point before pushing it up and out of his face. "It's my mechanic's monocle." At least that was what he liked to call it. "It's like a magnifying glass so I can get a better and closer look at what I am working with so I don't damage anything while extracting or ensure the cleanest fusion when putting things together." Considering for a moment, the Gryffindor removed the leather strap from around his head and passed it over. "You can try it if you want."

But break it and there would be problems.
