PostSubject: End Of Summer Masquerade Party [Invite Only!]   Tue May 02, 2017 5:09 am

The summer holidays had been spend, in part, corresponding with different people and planning for the latest party. The invites had been sent out the second week of the holidays, giving everyone who was invited a chance to purchase items necessary for the party which, he and Lucy had decided, was going to be a Masquerade one.

Mostly, they'd decided on that because Lucy had all but screamed at the suggestion, telling him they had to do it, simply because she wanted to look good in a hot mask. And Corbin was definitely not dumb enough to go against Lucy when she was in one of her moods; besides, a masquerade (although initially said in jest) sounded like a good idea.

He'd received a few letters back from those he'd invited, a couple or so of which had been with names for people he should also invite. Now, Corbin and Lucy weren't known to be the organisers by many people, merely the foot soldiers of the organisers, but there were a few -- friends and close acquaintances -- that knew the truth, and these were the only ones who could suggest names for invitation. As such, Corbin found himself sending out a few more invites, including one to a male Lucy had recently noticed 'was hot'.

It was enough reason for him -- who was he to argue with his partner in crime? -- and as such, by the third week of summer, all invites and whatnot had been taken care of.

The first Friday the very week school opened, therefore, was when the party was stated to happen, and Corbin looked around the room, a smirk on his face. They really had done well this time round. He'd picked a relatively simple mask, and was stood in a proper suit and tie. If it was a fancy ball Lucy wanted, it was a fancy ball Lucy would get.

"Hey, Luce," he called, looking up from the bar, where he was arranging the alcohol. "Are you going to help or are you gonna fudging prink the whole time?" Where she was, he wasn't sure, but he had an inkling she was somewhere in the bathrooms, adjusting her outfit or her mask. He knew her well enough to guess that much, in any case.

The twins were also there, having been scheduled to help out, although Corbin did not really talk to either Madison or Melody. There was something about the both of them that told him to be careful, that they weren't all that met the eye. Still, they knew how to keep their mouths shut and were good company, and knew how to handle ... unwelcomed visitors or those who blabbed well enough. He never asked them how and they didn't tell, but nobody who ever tried to talk ever really did.

It was their job, and they did it well, and so Corbin left them alone to do their thing.

Instead, he glanced around the room once more and nodded to himself. The guests would be arriving soon. That much was certain.

Lucy had spent majority of her summer trying to think of ideas for her and Corbin's end of summer party. And when figuring out a theme, Lucy might have gotten a tad too excited at the thought of having a masquerade party. Because masks were mysterious, and classy and it had been something she'd always wanted to host.

One of the more difficult things had been sorting out the invitations. There were a few that would certainly make it, a few questionable guests, and a few new ones that could potentially make the list. The twins for example always made the list. And Lucy, well, she liked them. Though they certainly weren't the sort she'd spill her deepest, darkest secrets too. Those that made the list were exclusively the ones Corbin and Lucy thought would be interesting. And occasionally, ones that were particularly good looking.

The first Friday of term, Lucy spent the afternoon getting herself ready in a bathroom the room had provided. Hair, makeup, the lot. She decided to go for blue. Blue was her colour, so she picked out her favourite blue dress and paired it with a fancy mask before she made her way to the room to help with the decorating processing.

The twins and Corbin were there when she walked out, and she happened to walk out just as Corbin had called out to her.

"It takes time to look like this," she replied as she walked over to help him get things ready. The guests would be arriving soon after all.

When Roxanne had received the invite for a party she had been, understandably, surprised to receive said invite, especially since she didn't know why she had been invited, until she read the fact that it was Sienna Gibson that had invited her to the party; it took her a bit of thinking but she had replied with an affirmative and had instantly gone shopping for a dress and a mask; she loved parties after all and there was no way she was going to wear a dress that she had already worn once before. She was a girl with class after all and hated wearing the same dress to five different parties.

It hadn't been hard to find the perfect mask but finding the dress had been hard, eventually though she and her father left for France where Roxy picked out a pretty dress that didn't clash with her hair, thankfully.

Come Friday, Roxy was a bundle of nerves as she waited for the time where she could sneak off to get dressed for the party; she had received the password for the Room of Requirements two days ago from Corbin, the Slytherin that she had talked to once last year, and thankfully she remembered it.

Sneaking out of the common room hadn't been hard for Roxy, considering the fact that it was fairly quiet that Friday with most Ravenclaw's spending time in the Library to get their homework done before the weekend so that the weekend was free.

Making her way up to the Seventh Floor she quickly found herself standing in front of the wall where the room was and, thinking of the password, she walked back and forth three times, a smile appearing on her lips at the door that opened.

Stepping inside, Roxy noticed the room and was pretty much in awe of how the room was set out; it certainly looked better than any ballroom she had ever had the pleasure of seeing.

"Am I early?" She questioned the four people in the room, blinking her eyes behind her mask as she stepped further into the room. The dress she wore was a simple black dress and her black mask.

Stephanie had been surprised, to say the least, when she received the invitation for a masquerade party. It wasn't the invitation that surprised her - though she couldn't help but feel that Corbin had been a bit rude in his introduction - since, as a Pureblood and because of her name, which she was beginning to wish she didn't have, she received many invitations to balls. No, none of that surprised her. It was the fact that there was to be a party at Hogwarts and it was to remain a secret. Why a secret? Though her summer had been full of balls and parties and Stephanie was frankly quite tired of having to socialise with - as Toryn had enlightened her - fake people, she decided to go anyway, wondering what it was about this party that warranted it being so secretive.

Looking for a dress hadn't been a problem at all. A month before the summer holidays, her family's tailor had been commissioned to make her a dozen new dresses in light of the functions she had to attend. She'd only worn about six of them, receiving admonishment from her mother. It does not do at all to wear the same dress to a party. Why! People will think we don't have enough money to afford new ones! Just to shut her mother up, Stephanie had put on her best pouty face and complained that she didn't like the other dresses. Truthfully, she loved them, but that damn Toryn had made her second guess all her decisions, even her way of life, and she wanted to find out if what he said was true.

She stood at her closet, deciding between two dresses. The first had ruffles at the skirt - which she loved, but wasn't as sparkly as the second. She stared at the two gowns for a good ten minutes before laughing at herself. Here she was, the epitome of a Pureblood deciding what to wear when there were people who couldn't afford proper clothing and had to content themselves with whatever scraps of material they could find.

Finally, she took out a coin, assigned one dress to each side and flipped it, ending up with the dress with ruffles. She put it on, accessorised with a diamond necklace and matching earrings, put on some heels, and a mask, and headed to the room of requirement, thinking the password that was given to her,

The splendour of the room didn't surprise her, having been used to many a ballroom. She had entered just in time to hear someone ask if they were early. After greeting both Corbin and Lucy - because it was very impolite to ignore one's host - she walked up to the girl. "It's better to be early than be late and miss all the fun," she commented lightly. She didn't think she needed to introduce herself - the Richardsons were rather well-known - but she didn't know who this girl was. "I'm Stephanie. How do you do?" she began with the polite greeting that had been drilled into her as she curtsied gracefully. "And you are?"

An invitation to a Masquerade Ball had arrived for Wesley during the summer. He'd read it a few times, before it spontaneously com-busted before his eyes. Whilst the Bulgarian understood the information in practice, he didn't understand why he - a boy who struggled with conversation and was new to the school - had been invited to the secret party.

The only person he knew was Madison Bishop. Well, her and Alexei, but Wesley did not like the boy. He was terrified of him, in truth. So, why in Merlin's name had he been invited to a party. Maybe it was a party made by the professors? Wesley did not understand.

Madison's note had cleared it up shortly after, and that had... slightly relaxed the boy as he sent back his consent to the party.

That had left him with a dilemma, though. Wesley didn't own a suit that still fitted him, so he'd had to go to his mum to ask for the money. She'd, of course, questioned the need for it, but upon hearing Wesley's explanation of the party, she had agreed, and not long after, Wesley had been kitted out with a suit for the occasion.

His mask had been one of the less detailed, because Wesley did not wish to bring attention to himself. That done, Wesley could only wait for his impending doom. Yes, that was the only way he could think of it after a boy had cornered him in a corridor and insisted the password to be used was Persona.

It had taken Wesley less time to get ready than it did to navigate the halls, but after a long time walking around - he'd left early for this purpose - he'd finally found the corridor, and started to pace. Only when the door showed itself did Wesley stop chanting the password under his breath.

Stood, fixated with the door, Wesley took a few moments to compose himself. He was trembling with the fear of social situations. He hated them, in truth. His stomach was churning from nerves, he felt rather light headed...

And yet, he stepped forward, pushed the door open, and admitted himself to one of the most beautifully intimidating rooms he'd ever laid his eyes on.

Stopping just inside the door, Wesley marvelled at the room. What else could a boy do when he'd never seen such things in his life. For only a few moments he was left not fearing the socialisation, but living in the awe of the moment. Perhaps... parties weren't so bad after all?

Cassiopeia was a bit of surprised when she had received an invite to the secret party again. she did attend to one last year. She still didn't completely why she was invited to that party. She realised this time it was the masquerade party which made this party even more interesting one for sure.

Well, Cassiopeia wasn't really very familiar anyone at this party. Of course, she has seen most of them around but she barely talks with those people who seemed to attend here.

So when she realised it was masquerade party she needed to find herself a dress. She has some money on her account in the bank. So she didn't have to go ask money from her parents and explain why she needed some new dress. She actually spent a couple of hours for finding the perfect dress in the summer.

When the school year started she was excited about this party actually. She really wanted to share this excitement with someone but she kept inside since she knew she can't tell about it to anyone.

When they day was finally there. She got dressed for the party and walked towards the room of requirement. Soon she reached there and she thought about the password that was a few days ago given to her. She soon entered the room and looked around there. She realised she was this time one of the first to arrive there.

"Hello, everyone," she said simply with a small smile on her face. She had decided that this time she will try to be here more social one but she wasn't really sure what else she should say there at the moment.

Since when did Hogwarts throw parties? That was the first thought that had run through her head. Of course Hogwarts had probably always thrown parties and she had just never been invited. Why? She didn't know. She was a Charlot but maybe people were intimidated by her because of that. Either way, Severine was pretty ecstatic to receive the invite during her boring school holidays. The holidays had a pretty boring start when her parents decided that the current political aspect of Monacco needed to be focuses on more than the pre-planned trip to Maldives so Severine was bummed about that being canceled and then she got the invite.

The invite had combusted five minutes later, like it had said and luckily Severine was usually pretty good at remember the important stuff. She had gotten a new dress and mask while in Diagon Alley school shopping and eyeballed it every morning before classes the whole first week. At some point, a girl had passed by her and whispered the password she'd need to get into the room before running off. Severine dared not approach anyone else about this secret party, for she didn't want to make her new potential group of friends angry. Finally, the first Friday had arrived and Severine couldn't be more excited for classesto end for the day and when they did, the non-athletic girl raced to the Gryffindor tower.

Severine spent the entire afternoon getting Masquerade ready. She made sure all of her makeup was on point and that her dress was smoothed out. She carefully pinned her hair into an elaborate braided updo and strapped on some black heels. Lastly, she placed the mask on her face. She twirled in front of the mirror, her bright azure eyes staring back at her through the deep shades of red and black the dress and mask put off. There was a slight sparkle to them, enough to give attention but not enough to make her look like a child that accidentally went overboard with the glitter glue.

When it hit that time, Severine took a deep breath in and set on her way to the location she'd been given. Severine didn't think she'd even been to the Room of Requirement before but she had definitely heard and read about it. Arriving in front of where it should be, she paced three times while thinking of the password and lo and behold, it appeared.

The girl, unfortunately, was not prepared for what lie inside. It was absolutely beautiful and remarkable and every other synonym to those words she could think of. Her mouth gaped open for only a moment before she pulled her composure together and straighten her back. With a smile on her red tinted lips, she walked forward with a small nod in the direction of the others who were there.

It was in Severine's best interest to make this a night she'd never forget. After all, it was her last year here.

Corbin and Lucy threw the best parties. Everyone worth knowing went, and it was the best place to make connections; the pair made sure of that. It was no doubt, therefore, that both Madison and Melody were not only on the list (permanently), but among the select few that knew that it was the pair that hosted the parties in the first place. Everyone else thought they were just right-hand people to the actual hosts, the faces -- but that simply wasn't true.

But that was a secret, and Madison knew how to keep her mouth shut. After all, the perks that came with being in league with Corbin and Lucy were far too good to pass up. Besides, they had an understanding, and she wasn't going to try and break that for the world.

Knowing the two, therefore, was exactly how Madison had come to invite Wesley. She'd considered making him her plus one, at first, but that had been too risky, too out of character for her. So she'd written to Corbin, called in a favour owed to her; and, to his credit, the other Slytherin merely delivered, asking no questions. He had them, no doubt, but their understanding included neither questioning the other, and that worked fine.

Showing up early to the party (she was on duty this time around, both as security and for decoration), Madison and Melody greeted Corbin and set to work, doing odds and ends. The mask she'd chosen had been really simple, hiding nothing, as intended.

People began arriving soon after, not that Madison cared. She stood at the side, wand tucked away into a special holder she'd sewn into her dress, obvious and on display. She was, after all, meant to be the security, and there was no denying she had easy access to her wand should it call for it. She watched each person as they entered, running their face through her mind, making sure they were the ones invited. Corbin would do that, too, she was sure, but there was no harm in double checking.

And then Wesley arrived, shortly followed by two others, and at once Madison set to work. Stepping forward, a smile on her face, she made for the male, making sure her movements were soft and not authoratative. "Wesley!" she greeted, as soon as she was near enough. "I'm so glad you could make it. I was afraid you'd be too tired or anxious. The place is grand, isn't it? The organisers really outdid themselves this time."

She paused, taking him in, then added, "How were the rest of your summer holidays?"

Another invite to another party. Dimitri couldn't help but smirk to himself as he'd read through it - secrecy assured, he'd picked out a very nice red suit for the masquerade ball, before pairing it with a mask that befit the occasion. Why the choice of a masquerade this time, Dimitri couldn't be sure, but he knew it would be fun.

It had taken him some time to get ready for the event, making sure his hair was neat before tying the mask in place - with an added charm to keep it there, because he didn't trust his knots. Not that it was going to remain a secret for too long who everyone was. The guest list, he was sure, would be quite small once again, but filled with good people.

This time, though, Dimitri was hoping that, should there be games, he was not left with someone in a relationship. The awkwardness was just too much. Though, of course, he'd been left with Carlotta... but, well, his fellow Ravenclaw wasn't really his type and it had amounted to nothing.

Making his way to the party, Dimitri thought of the password 'Persona' that had been given to him by Corbin in the corridors one morning in the first week of term. Soon, the door opened, and Dimitri stepped inside, taking in the scenery with a mildly impressed look before his eyes fell on one witch in particular. Lucy.

Smiling to himself, Dimitri moved across the room to the Slytherin witch. "Hey, Lucy!" He greeted, making a not so subtle note of her attire. "You look amazing this evening, if you don't mind my saying so." He added, before looking over to Corbin. "Hey!" He added to the other male, leaning on the bar that had been set up and taking in the rest of the room. A lot of females thus far, but that was never a bad thing.

Elenore's summer had been a whirlwind from which she had still not come down from. Her parents were trying their best to match her with a suitable Pureblood male who would not diminish their standing in society. However, no matter how hard you might try, finding someone that Elenore found truly exciting, and did not besmirch their name too much by marrying too low was a topic of conversation that very few people qualified for. If, at all.

Added to that was the night spent with Corbin in France. Elenore still did not know how to explain that night, Merlin knew she'd tried. So, she'd left it simply at having been done.

It was no surprise to the witch that she'd been invited to the party that were always held in top secrecy. Elenore had sent her dressmaker off with the idea of a dress that would leave a man wanting her, but not in a rushed sense. Her new ideas of how men worked had aided her in creating the perfect black dress for the occasion. With that, she'd requested a simple mask to be designed. One that had been treated with the expense of diamonds being set in to it.

Lucy had passed her by with word of the password, and with a soft thank you, Elenore had carried on with her day.

It had taken Elenore hours to get her makeup right, her hair straightened out neatly before being put up in a style that warranted a few more diamond encrusted hair pieces. Her mask had to be positioned carefully, and then, for safety Elenore had placed a charm on it to keep it in place until such a time as she would need to take it off. After all, having the look come undone would simply not do.

Heading up to the Seventh Floor - making sure not to be followed - Elenore walked past the entrance to the Room of Requirement three times before it presented itself. Placing a smile on her lips, Elenore slipped in to the ballroom - which did nothing to impress her - in time to catch another witch gawping. Only momentarily. It took Elenore two steps to work out who it was, and upon finding one Severine Charlot gawping at a Ballroom clarified everything Elenore would ever need to know about the Monacan 'royalty'. They were, and never would be, worth her time.

Stepping past the Gryffindor, Elenore made her way to the one person she truly spoke to in the room, Corbin. "Good evening." Elenore greeted him, a warm smile on her lips as she moved closer. Her attire, well, Elenore had picked for the sole purpose of the Slytherin's enjoyment, and she was going to make full use of it this evening.

The first person to arrive was Roxanne, and Corbin smirked a little at her question. "You're not the first, but certainly not the last," he told her. "That's a half-assed answer, I know, but where's the fun in a yes or no?" He'd left it at that, instead slipping out his wand to aid him in arranging the bar, muttering levitating spells as he arranged bottles of liquor.

He didn't need to wait long; the second guest to arrive had already answered Roxy's question, and Corbin let out a chuckle under his breath. This had been the exact reason he hadn't wanted to invite Stephanie until her brother had graduated -- he didn't want them to rub each other the wrong way, which no doubt they would've done. "This," Corbin introduced, wanting neither to get offended, "is Roxanne, the Förstner heir. This is Stephanie, the youngest Richardson."

The door opened yet again, and Corbin glanced up, noted it was Madison's guests, and didn't bother with walking over. She was already doing it, and he didn't want to bother with whatever she had planned.

But as a few more people came in, including the Charlot girl, Corbin couldn't help but notice the look she'd given. "Ah, Severine," he called out, walking towards her, hiding a smirk. "It is rather grand, is it not? I would have thought you were used to places like this, being a Pureblood and all. But I'm honoured that this simple party has awed you." It probably wasn't the most polite thing, but when had Corbin ever cared about what was polite? Besides, it was fun, and that was the aim of the party.

Watching as Dimitri walked over to Lucy, rolling his eyes mentally. This was the other one that Lucy had invited because of his looks, not that Corbin minded, and he didn't miss the look he gave Lucy. Instead, smirking this time, he nodded at Dimitri's greeting. "What, don't I look amazing too?" he asked, tone dripping with sarcasm. "But hey, if you're gonna fudge Lucy, try the prefect's bathroom."

Then and only then did he turn to the person he'd been waiting for -- Elenore. His summer had been... more interesting than he'd hoped, and he had a knowing glint in his eyes as she made her way over to him. Reaching out, he took her hand, raising it up and gently kissing her on the knuckles. "Elenore, how lovely to see you," he said, and once again his tone came out sarcastic; for all anyone knew, he was mocking her. "How was your summer?"

Wesley's eyes had been moving around the taking in the details. Evidently in awe as he did so, too. There were marking on the ceiling - of house coats of armour, and the Ravenclaw found himself wondering who they belonged to. Perhaps the Founders of Hogwarts? Perhaps they were just random, they were curious though, being situated in this room.

Wesley's eyes continued to take in his surroundings, until the familiar unease of someone stepping in to his bubble announced itself, and the soft voice of Madison Bishop made him jump a little because he'd almost forgotten where he was. Almost.

As Madison greeted him, the Ravenclaw gave a small smile to the witch which most definitely betrayed the fact being here was more than a lot stressful for him. "Hi Madison." He returned softly, before contemplating the question she'd posed about the room. A slow nod began to form as his eyes took in the grandness of the room once more before turning back to the witch who'd moved over to speak to him. "It's amazing, truly amazing." Wesley supplied in response.

The answers were short, and Wesley's eyes would not stay still as he continued to take in the room, and then the people around them. Why he'd chosen to attend this party, he was still not sure, but here he was. And, Madison was making conversation again, so Wesley refocused on the witch. Hearing her question, the Ravenclaw gave a shrug of his shoulders. "Pretty uneventful." Wesley supplied simply. "Yours?" He added, remembering just in time how to complete polite conversation, even though he didn't feel wholly comfortable with all of this.

It was then, and only then, that Wesley's brain fully processed all of Madison's words, and he back tracked. "You know who the hosts are?" He asked, attention moving fully to the witch now. She wouldn't see it behind the mask, but there was a light frown on his features. He didn't know who they were. He only knew there was a guy in a Slytherin uniform that had supplied him with the password. Nothing more.

But, in moving his attention to Madison, Wesley did, for the first time, take her in properly. A light blush touching his cheeks as he decided that Madison was pretty. Dressed like that, too... But, Wesley didn't pass comment, because every time he tried to think of one, it sounded terrible in his head. And... currently, he still had a filter in tact.

Before Roxanne could even introduce herself to Stephanie, her words were, literally, taken out of her mouth by Corbin and she couldn't help but turn to him and say in amusement. "Thank you."
Though she was a bit annoyed that he introduced her as the Förstner heir, she smiled politely at Stephanie. "It's very nice to meet you, Stephanie." She wasn't entirely sure how well this meeting would go but she would see; as long as they were amicable enough to each other she would be fine with it, she didn't want to make an enemy out of the youngest Richardson, that was for sure.

"I have to say, your dress in amazing." She eyed the many ruffles that Stephanie's dress seemed to have and she couldn't help but envy the girl with being able to pull off that dress colour so well, with her red hair the pale colour would clash and would look horrible on her. "It looks beautiful on you." She complimented the girl before turning her head away, biting her lower lip to hold herself back from giggling hysterically at Corbin's words to the Charlot female; she had known that Corbin wasn't always polite but that just topped the impoliteness scale.

As Corbin moved to speak to Severine, Elenore kept an ear open to the conversation - without openly doing so because Merlin that would be a rude thing to do - and couldn't help but internally feel so very triumphant upon hearing his words. He'd dragged her through the mud, so to speak, with his words, and the Clement witch was so very happy for her neighbouring (rival) countrywoman being brought down a peg or two.

But, Elenore simply moved past the witch, towards Corbin and greeted him with a soft smile as he took her hand and kissed her knuckles very gently. It was ever such a gentlemanly thing to do, and Elenore might have been fooled had she not known him better. The French witch appreciated the gesture, though, because it showed that Corbin could be trusted not to mess this up.

Their little arrangement.

Corbin's tone brought a small raise of Elenore's eyebrow - one meant only for the Slytherin before her, and no one else. "I'm sure you've been counting down the days, Henderson." She replied softly, her tone equally laced with sarcasm, but a more innocent version of the tones. "My summer? Oh, I can't believe you'd like to be bored with that. Parties, suitors, and much too much dancing. I'm hoping tonight will be much more up beat." She commented, though she gave him a small, very quick look of thanks, to show she appreciated his efforts in making conversation, and not spilling the beans, as it were.

A masquerade, how lovely. Violet had been rather surprised to be invited to yet another party, but she wasn't going to turn down the invitation. Where was the fun in sitting in the common room on Friday night doing whatever she usually did- that usually involved homework or something.

A masquerade, that would mean fancy. Thankfully, the invite arriving during the summer time meant she had some time to figure out an outfit and a mask. She decided on a simple, elegant black and white dress, with a black mask to go with it. She made her way to the Room of Requirement, keeping in mind the password, 'Persona'. Fitting for the theme. The entrance began to appear and she made her way into the room, finding a few people already there.

OOC: So Jake is useless, and forgot to post here... heh.

Another invite to another 'secret' party. Surely by now the hosts had realised that they weren't hosting a secret party, but more of a party for a select few? Not that Jacques had raised this point to anyone, it was just simply one of those things that amused him wholeheartedly. The lower classes were such trivial people, but, then, that was why they were kept to the lower classes of society.

A masquerade ball was not something that incited jubilation in Jacques, they were only ever a delight for the females. How many masquerades had he been to now... Jacques had lost count, but each was more boring that the last.

Pulling on a suit, and obtaining a plain white mask, Jacques had made his way up to the Seventh Floor and entered the party late. Not that he cared for being on time, that was a fool's game.

A fair few people were already there, but it was the blonde hair of the witch who must have only just entered before him that caught Jacques' eye. Violet. Moving to her side, Jacques placed his hand softly on her lower back. "Violet." He spoke softly to get her attention. "A drink?" He asked, because why waste time with small talk?

She hadn't been there long before she felt someone gently place their hand on her lower back, speaking softly to get her attention. She knew the voice before she'd even turned to face him, a smirk tugging at her lips as she did so. He was straight, to the point, something that Violet appreciated about him quite a lot. Small talk, more often than not, was a waste of time.

"Jacques," she replied, her voice only as loud as it needed to be for him to hear her "Of course," she agreed to a drink.

She hadn't seen him since the last party she'd attended, where it had gotten rather intimate, not that she had actually expected to speak to him, their meetings tended to be infrequent. It had been a small space, and if she were honest, the tension had been building for quite a while beforehand. Slowly, gradually and surely.

"It's been quite a while," she added, by means of keeping the conversation flowing.

The acceptance of his offer was not something Jacques had thought wouldn't come in to being, truth be told, and it was proved only a few moments later when Violet followed his lead without any compromise on the offer. Moving to the drinks, Jacques got himself one, and then Violet.

Sipping the drink he let out a derisive laugh at the words she'd brought forward. "I've been busy." He said simply in the first instance, because that was the truth, before elaborating. "And, presently, you didn't have anything I needed, so I wasted neither my time, nor yours, with a useless meeting."

The explanation, to many, might have been rude, but Jacques never wasted time when he didn't need to. Taking another sip of his drink, Jacques turned to the room as a whole, taking in the others there. His sister stuck out like a sore thumb, and many of the others he could place through familiarity, but none really held his attention.

"You still have it?" Jacques asked, not elaborating, because he was sure Violet would know exactly what he was talking about.

She took the drink offered by Jacques and took a sip as he stated the reason for no meetings. And honestly, she appreciated that he didn't beat around the bush. If chuckling was something she did freely, she would have at his comment. But no, that wasn't enough to warrant even a light laugh. He wasted no time in getting into the reason why he'd begun talking to her. Of course, the sword. Yes, she still had it. She'd been reluctant to turn it in to the Nightshades, purely because she felt as though it gave her leverage. In truth, the only leverage was that she'd be the only one to be able to find it in case something were to happen to her.

She couldn't remember explicitly telling Jacques that she held onto it, nor the circumstances that she'd gotten hold of it. But he had suspected, and certainly hadn't believed her when she'd denied it. That much was certain. Now the question remained, did she bother even denying it when Jacques so clearly just assumed that she had it, regardless.

"Why do you want to know?" she asked. She knew what he wanted, but the more important question she had to ask was why.

"Knowledge is power." Jacques replied simply, keeping his voice low enough for only Violet to ever be able to hear. Outwardly, he was calm, other people would think they were drinking together, flirting perhaps, but never know they were talking about the Nightshade group and an item that was very important to them.

"After all, if I have false information, it will hurt not only you, but me too, and I simply could not allow that." Jacques explained to the witch beside him, giving her a small knowing look. "That, and I think both of us know we should be considering handing the swords over before they take them by force." Jacques added, because Violet had been tasked with obtaining the Sword of Gryffindor, and thus far had not delivered.

"But, you know, if you'd rather go it alone, I'm happy to leave you without an ally." Jacques finalised with a second thought. He was a Slytherin after all, and self-preservation came up quite high on the list of his own, personal goals.

She sipped her drink casually as he spoke, tilting her head to the side as she considered his words. False information? It seemed to her that he'd involved himself far more than she knew, perhaps even going to them himself. But why? They were working against his interests. Unless this was a double cross, a means of confirming that she'd been involved, a provision of evidence to the authorities. It wouldn't surprise her, Jacques didn't strike her as the sort of person that would work against his own self interest. Sure, he'd expressed interest in learning dark magic, but that didn't mean he'd go against his own. Slytherins valued their family, their traditions after all.

She gave a soft smile "I'm positively flattered that you seem to care so much about whether or not I'm hurt, but I've taken care of myself this far." she said drily, she knew he had more concern for himself, just as she had for herself. Hence why she was being tight lipped, vague.

"I wasn't aware we were allies beforehand," she replied, keeping her voice soft. She couldn't have anyone else listening in. Jacques, she knew, was clever. And the last time she had let too much slip, he'd backed her into a corner.

"Though, you're more than welcome to hand over the Sword of Gryffindor if you're worried. You have it, right?" she asked. She didn't confirm whether or not she still possessed the sword. Knowledge is power, and she wasn't going to give him any sort of leverage.

OOC: Guess the idiot who wrote this post in full, thought they'd posted it, and refreshed the page? DING DING DING, you got it! Jake is an idiot!

The comment from Violet of her feeling flattered that he cared was one he did not move to correct. The dry tone in her voice depicted that she didn't truly believe he cared, but if she did -- in some weird manner -- believe that he cared, then that would be her problem, and hers alone.

"Allies only in nature, not by choice." Jacques replied quickly to her comment. Not to retaliate, but because that was what they were. Plain and simple, they had come to be allies through the things they held. Whilst Jacques didn't expressly know the extent to which Violet was in his position, he had enough to go on to believe that they were in the same boat.

He was open to himself being wrong, but Violet played the game much too defensively. If she didn't have the sword anymore, she would have bluntly told him as much. That much, he was positive of.

The idea of him handing the sword over made Jacques smile to himself, sipping at his drink as he turned to her. "As if I would be that stupid." Jacques told her simply, before placing a hand on her waist. "Let's stop the power struggle, eh, we both know who wins that one, and settle to something more fun for the rest of the evening?" He proposed, his words pointed -- much more than a Pureblood like himself should have been, but this was Hogwarts, no one cared for his trysts in this castle.

She hadn't expected any less of Jacques, from his reply. Only in nature, nothing more. It was mere luck that they became 'allies', in a strange sense, convenient (she was reluctant to say good) timing. Though allies traditionally had trust, and Violet typically trusted no one, let alone Jacques.

"Of course," she responded, only to indicate her understanding. She said nothing more on the topic of being allies, there wasn't anything else to be said.

She'd been about to offer to hand over the sword herself, after his comment at not being stupid enough to hand over the sword himself. There were only four swords, as far as she knew. And if she could get her hands on the two, potentially three, she'd be very valuable. She figured he'd most likely hold onto it for as long as it suited him though. Jacques, however, seemed to have something else on his mind. She ignored his quip about their power struggle. They'd disagree with who won that, that was a certainty.

"Something fun?" she took a sip of her drink "What'd you have in mind?" she asked, a smirk playing at her lips.

Jacques couldn't help the knowing smile that touched his lips as Violet asked what he thought was fun. Had she of been a Pureblood witch, he'd have forgiven the naivety of the question, but seeing as she wasn't, and the fact she was far from stupid.

"You know what I mean." Jacques replied, downing the rest of his drink before placing the empty glass on the bar.

"Come on." Jacques insisted, taking Violet's hand and leading her from the room. The party was boring thus far anyway, and last time the games had been quite dissatisfying. Away from prying eyes, Jacques was quite sure they could have more fun. Fun that could not be reported on by some of the school, only guessed at by others.

Slipping from the party, Jacques led Violet off down the corridor, trying to decide on a good place for them to spend the rest of the evening.


/le fade.
