Concentration showing on her face, Sophie levitated the obstacle, watching as it ascended high into the air. What now? There was no space on either side of the path to deposite the thing. Doing the only thing she could think of, she walked under it until she came out the other side before lowering it back to its original position.

With a sigh of relief, Sophie continued her way down the path, exiting the forest and locating the paddock easily. Nothing prepared her for the Centaur that was standing there. Her mouth almost dropped open in a rude gape and her eyes almost bugged out of her head. But working with horses had taught her to be in control of her body and she just managed to keep her awe and excitement under wraps.

Centaurs were another type of creature (could they actually be classified as a creature though?) that Sophie found absolutely fascinating. Of course, she knew that she could never treat them like a she would a horse. The Centaur had a human body for its top half and therefore a human brain. She found it weird and captivating at the same time. At least a Hippogriff was still a creature although it was a mix of two kinds.

Stunned into silence, Sophie listened as he talked of planets and consequences, none of which she actually understood. But he stopped himself halfway, abruptly asking her a question that made her frown. She'd never been particularly inclined to philosophical questions or questions that made her think about life and all that stuff. It wasn't that she was shallow. It just never occured to her to think of things like that.

Growing up in school back home, she'd been called all sorts of names: Horse girl, horse face, weirdo, and goody horseshoes to name a few. She was 'honey pie' to Gramma and plain Sophie to Grampa. But who was she besides that? Who did she defined herself as? A thought occured to her. A horse already knows who it is. Do you know who you are?

"I'm a girl who understands horses," she began slowly, taking time to choose her words. "I speak their language, a silent language. I look at my horse and I see my hopes, my dreams, my soul. A mirror shows me a person. My horse shows me myself." She paused then thought that she should add something of her personality. "I'm someone who takes risks and who faces the consequences without fear." She stopped, wondering if that answered the Centaur's question.

The Centaur seems to have been (half) listening to your answer that you gave, but their eyes were not completely focused on you. Whether your answer was to the question was satisfactory or not for the Centaur, you will never know, for they do not acknowledge you in the slightest once you are finished with your answer.

Instead, the Centaur merely raises their arm, pointing to the Quidditch Pitch which can only just be seen off in the distance. With that, they turn and trot off, almost tripping over a rock in the process as they mutter to themselves about the planets, and the impending alignment.

With no further instructions, you decide to follow the ‘clue’ that the Centaur has given you. On route, however, you notice something glimmering in the sun, catching your eye as you move close.


What do you do?

a) Keep heading straight towards the Quidditch Pitch.
b) Move towards the glimmering object, and investigate.

When all she received was a raise of the arm, the Centaur pointing to the Quidditch pitch, Sophie raised her eyebrows a little. All through her speech, she'd noticed that the Centaur wasn't really paying attention to her, but she'd carried on talking anyway. Then he trotted off without a word. Well, that's rude. Someone ought to teach you manners. At least he hadn't told her she'd answered wrongly.

Shaking her head, Sophie walked in the direction the Centaur had pointed, towards the Quidditch Pitch. She'd been there before, even imagining a few jumping courses she could set up on the field. Of course, she never actually did anything because she'd have to get permission. But she'd drawn out a few designs in a notebook in the event she ever got a green light for something like that.

It was an uneventful walk with Sophie not coming across House Elves, Centaurs, or strange obstacles in her path. But as she neared the Pitch, something shiny made her stop in her tracks. She squinted, trying to figure out what it was, but from this distance, she couldn't see clearly. Curiosity took over, and her feet began to move in the direction of what she'd seen.


b) Move towards the glimmering object, and investigate.

The glimmering object proves to be too much temptation and you decide to make a quick detour to go and see what it is. A short walk away is a mirror. With a golden frame that look to be old and dusty, it stands in the middle of the field. Nobody else is around it or in sight, and you move closer to examine the old mirror. What is it doing there? You don’t know, but it seems to be inviting you closer, and you move forward.

There is an inscription on the top of it that reads ‘erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru on wohsi’ and nothing more. You stare at it for a while, trying to puzzle out the meaning. The mirror beckons you closer and, almost subconsciously, you obey, stepping over so you are right in front of it.

You peer into the mirror and see yourself -- but hang on, it’s not just you. There’s something else as well.


a) Describe what your character sees in the Mirror of Erised. Whether your character realises this is the Mirror of Erised or not is up to you.

Drawing closer to the thing that caught her eye, Sophie saw that it was a mirror. She was about to shrug and walk away - she really had no use for a mirror - when something about it made her stop and walk closer. Inspecting it, she saw that it was a rather old and seldom used mirror, but it seemed to be an expensive one judging by the gold frame. Why would there be a mirror just standing here?

Glancing around, Sophie saw that she was alone. Looking closer, she saw that ther were words across the top of the mirror. She frowned as she mouthed the words out. That certainly wasn't English. An idea popped into her mind and she tried reading it backwards. ishow no urfac ebu... No, that didn't work either. She felt like she was examining a horse, working out why it wouldn't load, or accept tack, or jump. Except this was with words. She then began tackling each individual word, thinking that the spelling was just scrambled up. She managed to work out 'desire' but got stuck after that. The only other word she could form from stra was rats. Desire rats didn't make much sense.

Dropping her eyes from the text to the mirror, Sophie took another step closer. At first, she just saw her own reflection - the dirty clothes, the messy ponytail, the warm brown eyes. Looking into mirrors wasn't part of her habit; some mornings, she didn't even bother looking into a mirror - horses didn't care what you looked like - but she found herself drawn to this one.

As she stared at her reflection, she noticed something unusual. She was seeing other images. There was a man - a handsome one - smiling at her. Then there was a woman, a lady who Sophie noticed looked a lot like her. And the man had his arm around the woman's body, smiling at her. Then there was herself riding a flying Hippogriff together with a whole herd of the creatures.

You realise that you have been spending quite some time staring at the reflection of you. How much time has passed you are not sure, but you do know it has been a while, and you force yourself to turn away from the mirror and head over to the Quidditch Pitch.

It’s large, but as you glance around you realise that both the pitch and the stands are empty except for a broom and a chest in the middle of the pitch.

After noticing the empty stadium, you notice the sound of wings above you. Looking up, you notice that there are keys -- with wings -- flying around. You can’t really tell from where you are standing which key could possibly fit the lock, but you can see that there is a lock on the chest.

There are no instructions awaiting you on this task.


What do you do?

a) Get on the broom and try to catch one of the keys.
b) Go to the chest and try to open it.

(OOC#1: You can use a broom that is limited to how high it can fly if your character is not a good flier, but unless stated in your post, it would be assumed the broom has no limitations.)

(OOC#2: At the end of your post, please make your choice clear by writing it in another colour, or bolded.)

Sophie didn't know how much time she spent looking into the mirror, but she couldn't help it. She'd never seen anything like that before and it fascinated her. And that woman and man..who were they? She had not seen them before but the woman looked too much like her to ignore. Sophie wasn't stupid but Gramma and Grampa never talked about her mom or dad. Was that man and woman her parents? They had to be right? Shaking her head a little, she turned away from the mirror and continued down the path to the Quidditch Pitch.

She'd been here before when she was looking for a place to practice her trick riding. It was a large area and Sophie wasn't sure what she was supposed to be looking for. Once glance told her that the stands were empty, but as she walked, she noticed another chest in the middle of the pitch, this time with a broom by its side. Seeing that there was nothing else to do, she headed towards the objects.

As she neared, she heard the sound of flapping wings. She glanced up, squinting her eyes against the sunlight, and saw flying keys. Looking back at the chest, she saw that there was a lock on it, but from this distance, she didn't know which key fit the lock. Well, there was only one way to find out.

She was a natural flier, as at home on the broom as she was on the back of a horse and she wasn't afraid to go high and fast. There were still things she could learn, of course, but she was skilled for her age. Grabbing the broom, she mounted and took off.


a) Get on the broom and try to catch one of the keys.

Taking the route that includes the broom, you hurry to the broom. A moment is given to take in that it is a school broom that you will be using for this task, and then you kick off from the ground, up in to the air towards the keys above.

This sets off the keys into a frenzy of fast movements. You look around you, trying to locate a key that would look like it would fit the chest. All of the keys flying around you look very, very new. Your eyes keep scanning though, really trying to find the key that you need.


What do you do?

a) Fly after the keys, trying to locate the key you require.
b) Abort the idea of trying to find the key, and return to the ground.

(OOC#1: Please note that when the keys ‘speed up’ it will be to a speed that your character will find challenging, but not impossible.)

(OOC#2: At the end of your post, please make your choice clear by writing it in another colour, or bolded.)

When Sophie came to Hogwarts and discovered the world of flying, she'd been thrilled. She already had years and years of practice riding horses that her body adapted well to the broom. Of course, the two things were quite different but her natural instincts kicked in and she grew to love the sport. The broom provided wasn't one that Sophie would've picked but it was the only one available so she had no other choice.

There was one problem. The moment she launched into the air, heading for the keys, they began moving faster, their speed almost as if they were high on drugs or something. Sophie paused for a moment, hovering still in the air as her gaze darted from one key to another, trying to figure out which would be the one to fit in the lock, but they were moving just too quickly for her to make them out.

It wouldn't be hard at all to just set sights on one key and chase it down. She knew she could fly fast and she wasn't afraid to do so. Mind made up, she fixed her eyes on one key and decided to catch it.


a) Fly after the keys, trying to locate the key you require.

You decide on continuing on the broom and hurtle towards the keys in an effort to obtain the key you need. The keys fly around you, turning and twisting midair. Some fly into your path, making you swerve to avoid them. Others seem to taunt you, flying close to your face and then moving away. The more you search, though, the more you realise that all you can see are brand new keys, shining and glittering gold and silver. None of them appear to be old enough to fit into the chest on the ground. Perhaps this wasn’t the right path to have chosen?

You continue to chase the keys a little while longer, still searching for an older key that would fit the old chest, before deciding that you had chosen the wrong path -- there simply aren’t any keys up here that would fit it! There is only one option left


a) You return to the ground and head towards the chest to give it a closer inspection.

Sophie took a deep breath, dead set on catching one of the keys. She sped up, feeling the adrenaline rush through her veins as the world moved past her in a blur. But the keys did not move in a straight line. They twisted and turned, diving here and there, always just out of her reach. While Sophie was rather adept at flying and could do a few impressive maneuvers, there will still limitations to her flying. Then the keys began to change their movements, instead of avoiding her, they came straight at her, forcing her to turn tightly and lose sight of the key she wanted.

But not one to give up, Sophie kept at it determined that she was going to get one of those pesky keys. She didn't know how long she persevered but eventually, she felt the ache in her bones as tiredness began to creep in. Perhaps she should have just taken a closer look at the chest (maybe even try Alohomora?) instead of just assuming that one of the keys would open it.

Instead of continuing to chase after the keys, you decide to head back down to the pitch. You land your broom and get off before moving towards the chest. It is fairly old, but the lock on the front looks odd. Closer examination proves it to be a false lock, and as you go to touch it, it springs open before you! The chest is now open, and you move forward to get a look at what is inside. Inside is a rolled up scroll and a small velvet bag, drawstring pulled shut.

Picking up the scroll first, you unroll it and two small squares fall to the ground. You ignore them to read the message:

Congratulations! You have completed the treasure hunt. Enclosed are two vouchers, one for Honeydukes and the other for Flourish & Blotts. In the bag you will also find some treats as your prize.

You pick up the vouchers and the velvet bag and start back to the castle.


CONGRATULATIONS ON FINISHING! We hope that you have enjoyed the treasure hunt. Feel free to let us know what you thought of it. Smile <3 Sincerely, The HaB Admins.
