Default Poltergeist Hunt

POLTERGEIST HUNT!


Javier Hernandez was LIVID.

Sure, it was mildly annoying having bubbles fly out of his mouth like he was a human bubble gun every time he spoke, but Peeves had messed with the kids long enough. They should have done this months ago. Javier's efforts at having the Baron reign in Peeves had been in vain, and he was losing sleep trying to read over his potions books, trying to find some sort of potion that might reverse the effects of these spells. So far, he found nothing.

Enough was enough. They were going to find Peeves and make him reverse these ridiculous ailments he'd inflicted upon all of them. Peeves may have found it amusing, but this was a school. How were students supposed to learn when they were sprouting flowers out of their ears and turning invisible every five minutes?!

He'd put up notices on all the bulletin boards, should anyone want to accompany him - staff or students - and now he was ready to go hunt a poltergeist. He was standing in the Great Hall at the front doors, arms crossed in front of him and his mouth pressed tightly shut - just in case. Keeping the bubbles at bay and all that.

OOC: Is your character as fed up with Peeves as Javier is? Then you're in the right place! Gather round, Javier will get the hunt started soon!

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

The second Jude had seen the notice, he had thought of Lisa and their conversation about Peeves. He couldn’t help but grin because he was so sure he was going see her there at the gathering. He was also right up there with Hernandez: Peeves was SUPER annoying. For that reason, the Hufflepuff was proceeding to the Great Hall. Well… actually, he was being preceded by some butterflies. FINE. Not just SOME but a WHOLE LOT! There were a variety of species which were native to this part of Britain, of various shades and sizes. As usual, there were a few nesting in his mop of brown hair so it seemed as though he were wearing a multicoloured butterfly crown.

Jude puffed out a breath, squinting through the wall of butterflies. Oh, yes. That certainly was Hernandez! “Hi, Professor! Erm… sorry about the butterflies.” Yeah, the boy had no control over the things as was evidenced as the little creatures took off all around the Hall.

Still, one has to admit they were a PRETTY sight!

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

At first, Ash had loved the flowers that grew whenever she was around. But now that they were so strong, only controllable with calming potions or intense, constant concentration... she didn't like them so much. They were irritating now. They made a few enjoyable activities quite hard, guaranteed that she couldn't sneak out of the school, and made it obvious when she was feeling strong emotions. They made her feel like a nuisance, too- she was always apologizing for the flowers and not being able to control them. It was time for the flowers to leave. And time for EVAN to stop turning into an ALPACA(it worried her).

Seeing the flyers, she joined Jude and Professor Hernandez. She tried not to smirk at the professor's expression... she knew about the bubble problem and the only thing stopping her from laughing about it was understanding what it felt like to be inconvenienced in this ridiculous way. "Hey, Jude. Hey, Professor Hernandez. I see your powers have become problematic too." She sighed, then smiled as another butterfly landed on her nose. "Anyone interested in a bouquet or a flower crown while we're waiting for people to show up? Otherwise I'll find a different way to get rid of these and clean up the floor again."

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

It had taken her some time to realize that her transformations into a ferret were caused by a curse rather than her being an animagus. One that had gotten worse over time, and she had gone from transforming once every two to three days to nearly every day now.

The Gryffindor was in her common room when she saw the message on the bulletin board and decided to pitch in. She had not turned into a ferret yet today and she hoped they were able to find the poltergeist before that happened.

She arrived at the Great Hall and entered while tying her red hair into a ponytail. "Meredith Rowle, reporting for duty!" she said before becoming distracted by the butterflies flying around. She reached up her hand to try and touch one when she heard Ash speak and she walked over to the seventh year. "I'd like a flower crown"

She was a bit envious of the gifts that Ash and Jude had. They were beautiful but she could also imagine that it got annoying after a while.

Tadhg was beyond fed up with this 'gift' that Peeves apparently gave him. If he wasn't irritated before, he was more irritated then ever before. He did had to admit it was cool to go invisible whenever he could control it, but now he had no control over it what so ever. Now he was basically invisible blending into everything around him like a chameleon and he hated that he couldn't change back. Just so people knew he was around and there, he been taking out his wand to show he was there or doing a simple spell to let people know.

Seeing the post on the bulletin board he smirked although no ine could see it, it was surely indeed there. " Hello Professor, Ash and everyone else sorry you can't see me but I'm here and I want to help!" With his wand in his hand so they could see him he waited to see if anyone else was going to join them. He was glad to see he wasn't the only one fed up with Peeves 'gift' and wanted back to normal.

There were two reasons Vera was here, and neither had anything to do with being UPSET about her powers or with the Poltergeist. No, rather it was ADMIRATION that brought the young girl here - decked out in rainbow robes and sporting a new hair color of blue and purple. Her bag and scarf were a haphazard collection of colors as well, which was just another result of her own power. Ve was here because she wanted to get to the poltergeist before everyone else and THANK him for the fun he'd created here at Hogwarts. AND to BEG him to let her keep HER gift if Professor Hernandez was able to talk him into turning everyone else back to normal.

She really wasn't very fond of normal. She could cause her brother SO much grief with her touch currently. Pranks were the easiest they'd ever been!

She skipped her way into the collection of students already gathered, giggling and leaping to try to catch one of the butterflies that had also joined them before the seventh year's offer caught her attention. "OOH. Flower crowns!? Can I have one!?" Ooooh that would look so fun in her new hair!! "I can touch the flowers too and change their color if anyone wants! Though... I can't really CHOOSE a color. And it'll probably be more like... ALL the colors." If her power was even currently working. Which... much to her delight it seemed to be on more than off lately. "Or I can change anyone's hair if they want! How about you, Professor!?"

He'd look lovely in green like his house colors, did he know?

Just when Rajesh thought he was finally back to normal or had gotten control of whatever was causing him to be able to cause rain or summon water, things had started happening that showed he clearly hadn’t. Visits to the Great Hall for meals had become frustrating, between the rain clouds or overflowing goblets as he tried to drink. Not even the spell he had been taught by Madigan was working to protect him and others from his problem. It almost felt like he was going to be become a companion to Moaning Myrtle, causing floods everywhere he went.

Having seen the notices placed around on dealing with Peeves, the Ravenclaw was certainly ready to get more assistance of getting rid of things. Just on the way down from the tower to the ground floor Raj had almost slipped down the staircases at least 3 times with his shoes being all slick on the bottom like he was leaking water. A group had already started to grow when he finally arrived including Ash even before he noticed her.

He could spot her abundant trail of flowers anywhere.

“Hello," he greeted as he approached, hoping he couldn't collect too much water on the floor around them. "So….where do we start Professor?”

Luther doubted this hunt would be of any help but he thought that it wouldn't hurt his chances. So, he walked towards the gathered group all seemingly affected by Peeves' so-called gifts. Recently, his hands started to glow even brighter than before. While he was rather fond of the light glowing before, now it was incredibly annoying and distracting. He needed a solution, otherwise, his hands were going to distract the wrong person at the wrong time in some way or other.

When he saw Professor Hernandez he greeted him with a tired yet hopeful look, "Hello, Professor. Hope you are doing fine." He saw a couple of his friends around but he felt like he had to at least control the glowing a bit first.

Every step was accompanied by a sneeze. Every sneeze accompanied by the appearance of a flower crown in her hand not held by Mercer's. The smaller more rapid sneezes tended to produce more dainty bouquets, usually with an abundance of baby's breath, while her more robust sneezes tended to have larger blooms like roses in full bloom or tree peonies. Though, sometimes, the smaller sneezes would produce large blooms as well - which was the case with her latest sneeze. A crown of golden yellow (sunflowers, dandelions, daffodils, and English roses) appeared around her wrist and rather than drop it behind her as they walked, a trail of flower crowns in their wake instead of a trail of breadcrumbs, she twisted her stride a bit to place it on Mercer's head. He had mentioned liking daffodils so she made an effort to save those whenever she produced them.

She was not bothered so much by her gift in that she wanted to make demands of Peeves, so her purpose for joining this hunt was quite different. She had long since yearned for an audience with the poltergeist and hone her own searching skills. It was all she could hope for from adding Ghoul Studies to her schedule.

Another series of loud sneezes announced her and Mercer's arrival, five more flower crowns appearing in an array of colors and scents, and the third year gave her fellow Ravenclaw's hand a tight and enthusiastic squeeze. There were still peculiar wiggles in her tummy when she saw Ashley Fox, particularly when it was revealed that they possessed similar abilities, but she said nothing for now. She did not require any more flower crowns than she constantly spontaneously produced - and she had exhausted her paper and candle making skills over the course of the term trying to utilize them all and not make waste. A pastime that had saddened with Annora's company.

"Professor Hernandez is looking particularly perturbed," she noted quietly to Mercer while making note of all the butterflies coming from Jude. "Butterflies and flowers have a symbiotic relationship."

From somewhere in the middle distance, say around the point where one moved through a doorway from the moving staircases to a corridor that eventually wound its way to the Entrance Hall, there was a sudden, JAUNTY blast of FANFARE, complete with trumpets and bugles, as though announcing the exciting arrival of an important guest on a very big day. The fanfare echoed for a moment around the stone walls before fading into silence, making way for a merry jingling which seemed to ring out in time with a set of approaching footsteps.

But the individual who appeared at the top of the staircase (*FANFARE*) and jingled his way down the steps was neither regal personage nor court jester. It was a rather annoyed-but-trying-not-to-look-like-it-but-failing-in-that-endeavour headmaster. The invisible jingling of bells was bad enough - every move he made, they were there, so that even sleeping became difficult unless he used a charm to give himself some peace and quiet, which brought about a few issues regarding practicality and health and safety. No, that was bad enough, but the constant fanfares every time he passed through a door, doorway-sans-door, arch, or really anything that might be considered a threshold... That sure was... something else.

How was a headmaster supposed to stealth his way around his own school under these conditions? The kids could hear him coming a mile off.

Kamran jingled to a stop among the students and Javier. "I for one am ready for a very polite conversation with our beloved poltergeist." Oh yes. Very polite. He was greatly looking forward to polite-conversation'ing Peeves all the way into detention. Or exile. Or a toilet, which he would then flush or allow to remain blocked for life.

Constant jingling made a man cranky. Nothing to see here.

If this was annoying before, it was incredibly worse now. Kennedy could hardly go through with the lessons he had intended because there were either children turning into ferrets or teddy rats, bursting bouquets out of nowhere, blinding others with glowy hands, and Merlin knows what other gifts. It posed a danger to all. It was making flying no longer safe.

Making his way to the spot where Hernandez had called them to, Kennedy rubbed his eyes. Every time he opened them spots danced in his vision. “I just got blinded by glowing hands,” Kennedy grumbled, making his presence known. He was extra grumpy. His daughter…his precious little gem had been CURSED with glowing hands, and as she cried to him a few moments ago, she had unintentionally blinded her father.

Blinking, he seemed to slowly regain his vision. “Can’t believe the Bloody Baron can’t get a hold of Peeves.” He honestly couldn’t believe it. Back in his day, the Baron could put Peeves in his place. Kennedy would gladly join the Headmaster’s very polite conversation with Peeves. Even Kazmi wasn’t saved. The man jingled everywhere he went.

He had several suggestions, but they were too strong of words for the children's ears to hear, so he just waited for bubbles Hernandez to continue with the plans.

Simon was here too.

He was just a few steps behind Kennedy. He had heard Kamran’s comment. “I’m with Kam- Headmaster Kazmi,” he quickly corrected himself as the students were around. “Polite is the strategy. I think if we go in stronger… I’m afraid we’ll risk further consequences… It’s been foretold in countless historical tales both muggle and magical about the consequences of going in hot.

Simon did know that compromising was perhaps too naive. He turned to Kennedy after hearing that the Baron hadn’t been able to catch Peeves. “What does he desire most in the world? What is his motivation? Do we know that?

Knowing that… Perhaps that meant they’d finally have the upper hand.

curly haired prefect - "sometimes I get angry!" - 30/90 - *chicken emoji* - probably @ Disney - I speak dog

Oh good, a large crowd was forming quickly! Javier turned to Jude, the first student to arrive, and shook his head. "No no, it's quite alright. Can't be helped," he said, a trail of bubbles escaping his lips as soon as he began to talk. Ugh. Not only was that annoying and distracting, but he SWORE his mouth tasted faintly of soap each time as well! Or maybe he just imagined it.

Next were Ashley and Meredith - who thankfully was in her human form currently. "I'll pass, thank you Miss Fox," he said at her offer for a flower crown. If he had been in a silly goofy mood he might have humored the girl but - he was in anything BUT a goofy mood right now. Then - he JUMPED slightly as Tadhg's voice came out of nowhere. Clutching his heart a little dramatically he looked in the general direction of where the Slytherin had been. "Oh, uh that's quite alright," he assured him. He could only imagine how difficult it was being literally invisible.

He wasn't THAT surprised that some of the kids were pleased with their powers...after all, they were young kids and some of this stuff WAS sort of cool at times. But as for Vera's offer to change his hair, he shook his head. "No, thank you," he said politely, keeping his words to a minimum again as more bubbles poured out of his mouth. Ughhhh. Next up was Rajesh, who was unfortunately bringing a whole storm down the stairs with him - he made a mental note to check him periodically to make sure the poor kid didn't slip and break a hip while they were out and about. "We'll figure out once we have a bigger group," he responded to his question.

Then he saw Luther...and had to blink a few times, because, you know - BRIGHT LIGHT. He squinted at the young first year and simply nodded in greeting. He always had had particularly sensitive eyes and did have to thank Merlin silently that he hadn't gotten stuck with THAT power. Mitsuki also got a nod of acknowledge as she entered - yes, the professor WAS perturbed what else was new though.

"Yes. A very POLITE conversation," Javier muttered as Kaz made his grand entrance. Quite literally. Merlin, Javi was getting a headache already and they'd barely begun. Did he want to be POLITE about all this? Of course not. He wanted to be very very NOT polite once they found the poltergeist - but he had to keep his wits about him. Which was very hard to do, especially when he let out a little hiccup and a few more bubbles escaped his mouth.

"I know, it usually works," he grumbled to Kennedy as he joined them, frowning as he brought up the Baron had how he had seemed to be ineffective in their quest to keep Peeves' antics at bay. That was usually a sure fire way to get him to calm down...but whatever was going on, Peeves didn't seem to feel threatened. He raised an eyebrow at Simon as he joined the group - the younger man seemed a bit TOO optimistic to Javier, but he kept his mouth shut. He just shrugged in response to his question - what WAS his motivation? Probably the same motivation he always had - to cause chaos. Javier doubted any of this was truly that deep, but maybe that was just him being extra irritated with the situation...

"Alright everyone listen up!" he called out - the more he raised his voice, the more bubbles he produced SOOO he was going to try and cut to the chase quickly. "I think the best way to approach this is to gather in groups and search the areas we're most likely to find Peeves. Once we find him - we'll talk to him and see what we can do about these powers," he explained. "Let's gather up - professors, we should probably spread amongst the groups...and once we're grouped up we can figure out where to go," he said.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Once the butterfly had flown off her nose, Ash bent down and started collecting some of her flowers. Several spells later, she handed Mere and Vera flower crowns. She held one out to Tadhg, too... "This might help people see you." She didn't mind that professor Hernandez wouldn't take a flower crown, although it would have made her happy if he did. Surely someone else would want the flowers. With waves and smiles for Raj("Want a flower crown?") and Mitsuki, she turned her attention to the professors. Or tried to, as she slipped in Raj's water, shrieked a little, and grabbed someone's arm to stabilize her. She apologized quietly, hoping that nooobody saw that. Anyway. She was unsure on the strategy here. Professor holden seemed to want to be polite, while the other professors seemed like they wanted to threaten Peeves. How did you even do that? How were they going to find him? "I want to go with Headmaster Kazmi."

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Poor Hernandez. The man clearly had the same powers as Lisa. Well, Jude wouldn’t chatter on with the man; it must be super uncomfortable to have bubbles escaping one’s mouth frequently. Jude spotted Ash approaching and sent her a grin. “Hey, Ash!” Then he nodded solemnly. “Yeah, there have been way more butterflies around lately. They go along nicely with yours and Keigh’s flowers though.” Now, however, the increasing number of butterflies was just becoming bothersome: it distracted him from homework, classes, his dancing, music practice… everything basically. Flower crowns! He ADORED those but… “Maybe sometime later? Butterflies up there.” Jude indicated to the top of his head but then chuckled as a butterfly landed on Ash’s nose. “I told you they liked you.” While the two were talking, there were more students arriving. The Hufflepuff reckoned that Hernandez would be super pleased with the turnout currently happening. He stared hard at the wand which was obviously attached to an invisible hand. At first he thought it was Serena but it turned out to be cousin Dahlia’s boyfriend, Angus MacGyver, Tadhg. “Hey, Tadhg! We see you!. Er… your wand, at least.” Turning his attention to more students piling in, Jude sent small waves to Meredith, Luther and Mitsuki, the latter of whom he’d gotten a flower crown from at the Greenhouses’ reopening. Also… THAT NOISE, man!!! A quick observation told him it was Kazmi along with jingling. LOTS of jingling. GOSH.

With other professors joining and more bubbles added to the mix, the Hufflepuff focused on the Potions professor. HE really tried not to let the bubbles floating around be a distraction to him. He liked the idea of groups but he had one question. “How many persons to a group?’’ he asked Hernandez, and at the same time taking a step closer to the man, a subconscious gesture that he planned on joining the Slytherin Head’s group.

Keighley wasn't really all that upset with her 'gift' from Peeves like some others were. In fact despite the fact that she couldn't exactly control it all of the time anymore, her power was really nice. She didn't have much of an issue with all of the flowers appearing everywhere. Usually. Sometimes it was a tiny bit much when she was trying to focus on things or work on her MMA and she was creating flowers everywhere. Yet she wasn't sure she wanted to get rid of her own new 'gift'.

That didn't mean she wouldn't fully support those of her peers and professors that weren't at all pleased with that Peeves had done. Though she may have been running a little late, Keighley made her way to the ground floor to join everyone else in all of her flower footsteps glory. It was safe to safe flowers of every color and variety were all over the place, including in the fourth years hair as per usual.

She didn't hear to much of what had been said before her arrival but she did notice the butterflies and was able to follow them directly to her brother. "Heyyyy Jude," she sang with a warm smile and a wiggle of her fingers. She wanted to be whenever he was going, okay?

Realizing that his unnaturally, 'It was unnatural from the beginning though.' glowing hands were distracting and even disturbing many, including Professor Hernandez, Luther sighed and tucked his hands in his pockets as a colour spread on his pale face. Looking down, he thought 'Even my pockets don't cut off the glow.' Seeing Jude waving to him, he nodded in his direction and looked around if there was anyone who wanted to group up.

Kennedy thought about Simon’s questions. Peeves desires to cause chaos. His motivation is to cause chaos. Peeves loves chaos. Were those all eligible answers? Because in all his time at Hogwart the poltergeist did not seem to change and for some reason, he seemed to be fueled by something. Something that even gave him the bravery to ignore the Baron.

If chaos was the root of all this, they had to move fast. Not only were the student’s gifts growing stronger, but Javier might have a heart attack or hiccup-bubble-attack. Kennedy made sure to remind himself not to stare at the bubbles. Staring was rude, but come on. A grown man producing bubbles out of his mouth? COME ON.

“I’ll take a group,” Kennedy announced. The auror in him wanted to go and investigate this on his own and tuck the children away somewhere safe, but that was unrealistic. One, Peeves would most likely follow where the students go. Second, the students would find a way to go looking for Peeves. They might as well save all that trouble and just go together and investigate.

Default Norman - starting a group; Desiree- joining Escalante
Rhibear ~ Madam Solo ~ Dark Brooding Girl ~ Accio Jedi ~ Gryffinclaw ~ Just a doll

Norman was so done with this! Scratch that, he was done with this months ago when Peeves first bestowed his “gifts” upon the students. While he himself was so far unaffected, the situation still annoyed him for two reasons. First was the obvious disruptions to his classes. Having students involuntarily turn into animals or randomly conjure butterflies, flowers, bubbles, and who knows what else was not the type of transfiguration he wanted to teach! Second, and more importantly, was the toll these “gifts” took on the students.

In his first term teaching here, he waited too long to act on a threat to his students and vowed to never make the same mistake again. There was no way he was not joining this hunt!

He stood to one side, nodding his greetings to students and staff alike. As he listened to the conversations going on around him, Simon’s questions stood out. While he thought the answer to that would be obvious, it did give him an idea. “Peeves’s only motivation is to cause as much chaos as possible,” he said, looking at the younger man. “Maybe if we stage a pretend chaotic situation - or one that looks like an opportunity to create chaos, we can get Peeves to come to us.” For example, an unaffected professor roaming the halls like a sitting duck for Peeves’s curses. If it came down to it, he could pull a heroic sacrifice if it meant putting an end to this once and for all!

He stepped forward as everyone dispersed, his bluish-green eyes scanning the area in search of a group in need of a professor. “I can take another,” he volunteered.



Well, look who finally decided to act, Desiree thought as she joined the group. Funny how Peeves’s curses suddenly become a problem worth dealing with only after one is personally affected. She had definitely not forgiven Professor Hernandez for giving her false hope with that Felix Felicis lesson, but she wouldn’t let that stop her from joining in the hunt. An enemy of her enemy was her friend… for now.

The wombat transformations had become more frequent than ever! In fact, they were the reason she wasn’t here sooner. She was just coming out of a transformation when she arrived, still sporting teddy rat ears and claws in place of her usual brightly painted fingernails. Only when the claws were gone and she was sure her voice wouldn’t come out in wombat chatter did she offer a wave and a shy, “Hi” in a way of greeting everyone.

She looked around, carefully sizing up the group options in her mind. Part of her wanted to go with Jude and Keighley, but she had to go with the professor she trusted most to help her get what she wanted. So not Hernandez, not Kazmi… the latter of whom she trusted well enough, but all that jingling was bound to tip off Peeves. As much as she liked Holden, she wasn’t sure that politeness was the best strategy for dealing with the poltergeist. Look what that got them so far! That left Carton or Escalante. Remembering how his lessons had helped her take her mind off her troubles, she joined the flying professor. “Mind having me in your group, Professor?” she asked. “I promise I won’t cause trouble in my… other form.” Her expression darkened slightly as she said the final words.

Honestly, she was more likely to cause trouble as a human. Her wombat form didn’t do much except eat, sleep, and burrow under stuff. But as long as she had hands to hold her wand and a mind to think for itself, she intended to make that poltergeist wish it had never come into being!

The headmaster’s entrance was hard to miss, the poor man followed by a ton of jingling and jangling. Raj would certainly be wincing at every step with that noise and he doubted the librarian would like him when trying to hang out in one of his favorite places in the castle. Shoot, the animals he paled around with would HATE it. Professor Escalante was next to arrive and while not cursed, he seemed to be dealing with the outcome of someone else’s. And apparently the History of Magic professor who followed was completely missing the sarcasm that dripped from his boss’ words.

Very polite conversation indeed.

Thankfully Hernandez did not as confirm by his own. And they were waiting on a bigger group, the sixth year looking around and wondering just how much bigger they needed. Rajesh moved to wave back to Ash, only to make a face as she slipped on one of his puddles, looking completely embarrassed for causing that trouble. She seemed okay as she grabbed onto someone to stay upright, wordlessly mouthing an apology before refocusing on what was being said.

Okay now they were breaking up and searching. He debated on which direction to go, before cautiously making his way towards his head of house who had snuck up nearby once he was aware of the man leading a group.

Let's find this poltergeist!

Bella was there and had been the whole time off to a side with her butterflies surrounding her face as per the norm lately. It was annoying and frustrating since the butterflies albeit pretty made it hard for her to do her best in classes. As Prof Carton probably had noticed as well as other professors her spell work wasn't up to its best, and it had caused a few accidents. They were grouping up, and thus Bella headed over to her head of house, wanting his support and protection against the evil poltergeist. "Prof Hernandez is it okay if i go with you?"

Flittering in and out of view several times Maria finally came visible again in her yellow and black badger robes where she stood not too far from the professors and other students. She pushed down the urge to cry because turning invisble had been sorta fun at first but definitley not anymore. Maria didn't know who she wanted to group up with but finally decided on Prof Escalante since Desiree was going to hunt with him. Walking over to them she said "Prof Escalante, i want to be in your group." To Desiree she mumured and held out her hand. "Desiree, can you hold my hand? It might help me keep myself visible."

Professor DeVries, who could move surprisingly quietly for such a large man, had come upon the scene rather late--between the library and the greenhouses, he was kept pretty busy this year. As he came up behind the small crowd that had gathered for the poltergeist hunt, his head and shoulders towering above them in back, he was shocked to see how badly Peeves' 'gifts' had escalated--things were far worse than they had been at his greenhouse celebration before the holidays. Professor Hernandez definitely had the right idea here about doing something to stop it. The new 'powers' seemed for the most part to be merely amusing, but Tapio felt that it was just a matter of time before someone got hurt.

Luther thought 'I really hope this works. I wonder if there is a way to kick out a poltergeist.'

While trying to see if any of the Professors had any openings in their team, he saw the seemingly unaffected Professor Carton looking around. Tucking his hands in his pockets in order to block the glowing as much as he could, he walked towards the Transfiguration Professor. Then he saw a Ravenclaw student surrounded by puddles(Raj) next to the Professor. Luther remembered him from the DADA class but while trying to avoid getting wet, Luther forgot to ask his name.

Without removing his hands he said "Hi, I am Luther Starriver, first-year Gryffindor. I would shake your hand but mine are glowing a bit too bright." and then he turned to Professor Carton and asked "Hello there, Professor. Is it okay if I join you too?"

"I say we stick to just two groups!" Javier called out as the room started splitting up in to groups, in effect answering Jude's question as well. He nodded at Bella as she walked over and asked if she could join him, and then turned to Carton. "I don't know we'll necessarily have to stage anything - he seems to enjoy invading even the most mundane conversations," he grumbled. He'd waited to see how many people had shown up, and was starting to think a bunch of small groups might not be as effective as two larger groups. "We want to have enough people in each group - and enough professors - to put some actual PRESSURE on Peeves to get him to let up," he reminded them, clamping his mouth shut quickly as soon as he was done talking to stop the stream of bubbles. "I'll lead one group out to the grounds, and the other group can stay in the school - Carton, since you have a good number already gathered by you, you want to lead the other group?" he asked, raising his eyebrow at his colleague.

"Those who want to go with me - let's head out, starting at the Courtyard, and let's see if we can find a poltergeist. Castle group - maybe start in the first floor corridor?" he suggested before turning to his group and gesturing for them to follow him out to the courtyard.

OOC: Alright everyone, I will post Javi heading into the courtyard for the hunt sometime tomorrow but feel free to post your characters there now if you want - let's stick to those two threads for now and see what happens

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Jude knew his sister was there even before he saw her. How? Because of the way she usually greeted him. He inclined his head in her direction, smiling all the while. “Heeeeey, Keigh! I see you brought more flowers to the mix.” Truthfully, Jude loved that the powers he and Keigh had been given went hand in hand. Butterflies would almost immediately rest on the flowers she brought about - something he had noticed when he and she hung out. “We’re breaking off into groups to look for Peeves. I’m going with Hernandez, and I think you will want to as well?” Because that’s how the youngest Anders siblings were! They stuck together. “Hey, Desiree!’’ An enthusiastic greeting for the always adorably dressed third year. His attention switched to Bella who was joining Hernandez’s group apparently. Jude was thrilled with this development, and he reached out an elbow to nudge his friend. “Hi, you!’’

Right! So… Hernandez was going to head out to the Courtyard. The Hufflepuff was more than ready to get moving, more than ready to find Peeves so he followed the Potions Master.
