PostSubject: Valentine's Day Ball (Open to All Staff & Students)   Wed Jun 21, 2017 8:25 pm



All students and staff are cordially invited to the Hogwarts Valentine's Ball -- the ball will take place on Monday 14 February 2022, and all students will be exempt from classes on the Monday and the Tuesday so that they can fully enjoy themselves.

The ball will begin at 7pm, and finish at 1am.

Non-alcoholic champagne will be served throughout the night, together with a buffet dinner for all those who want to join in.

Roses line the tables, and love heart cut outs flutter around your head when you enter, punch that smells surprisingly like Amorentia sits by the drinks table, and cakes have been decorated with love heart candies. It will be a night for all the lovers in Hogwarts to enjoy!

Dress code: Suit and tie, or cocktail dresses.

Enjoy!

Rebekah was excited for the Valentines Day dance. Even though she did not have a date, she was not going to let that bother her too much. She would get to dance with her friends and a few of the guys that did not have dates. She got ready with a few friends and let them do her hair and make up before putting on her dress. Her dress had been a bit expensive, costing her 75 galleons. But it looked so good on her, she couldnt not get it. She walked down to the great hall and smiled as her blood red heels clicked along the floor. She walked in and smiled as hearts started to float around her head It was so cute. She looked around and noticed that not many other people were there. She did however see her friend Zoey and waved at her and walked over to her young friend.

Madison stepped into the hall, looking around with some curiosity. Everything had been set up perfectly. For months now she had been working on Wesley, looking and waiting for the right opportunity to take it to another level; she knew, now, the best way to ruin him completely. Was it harsh? Yes. Would it possibly destroy the male? Definitely. Did Madison care? No, not really. If he didn't break, she would be severely disappointed; she had put in a lot of effort to building him up.

Taking in the atmosphere, Madison already began categorising the sections of the place. She'd take Wesley to the drinks table first, and then they'd get some food and sit at a table... Perhaps later on she could convince him that she wanted a dance, too. Yes, Valentines was the perfect opportunity to get him to fall for her.

She nodded once to herself, then turned and exited the hall, waiting just outside the doors; she asked Wesley to meet her there, and they'd walk in together. For all he knew, she hadn't entered previously. So, standing there, she waited for her date to arrive. And then the games could really begin.

Briella wasn't happy. She'd made the mistake of, in one of her letters to Owen, telling him about the Valentine's Day ball Hogwarts was throwing, adding a throw-away line about 'definitely not attending'. Her second mistake was adding that the dress code was, obviously, a dress.

Her brother's reply had not given away anything, and they continued talking about school and work and other things. A week later, a package arrived in the mail, a simple card on the top telling her to open it in private. Excusing herself from the breakfast table, she went to her common room and tore open the box -- only to find a note sitting on top of a dress.

The note wasn't signed, and only contained three words, but she knew at once who it was from, and a string of really interesting threats was heard from those nearby. The card read: We dare you.

Knowing that it was probably Cora or Rose (or both) who had picked out the dress, Briella shoved it aside, still muttering threats, and put the idea aside until the time came. After all, she wasn't going to back down from a dare from her brothers; the consequences of not playing were worse than playing, she had learnt.

So, on Febuary 14, at seven sharp, Briella entered the hall, feeling very uncomfortable in her dress, and made straight for the food buffet, ignoring the hearts and the pink and the ick all around.

Sienna loved what they did to the place. If she'd been anywhere other than school, she would have gone home with more things than she could have hoped for; so many people were wearing jewelry perfect for lifting, and there would be so many males pining for attention... But Sienna shook her mind from that daydream and forced her perception to change. She was there not for work, and not to find work, but simply because she wanted to see her school mates interact. There was a lot of information to be gained from seeing them let their guards down.

She had momentarily debated going with another dress, one she got for herself for a Christmas present (and by 'got', naturally, she meant convinced someone to get it for her). It was far too expensive to wear here, though; questions would be raised and those were never helpful. So, instead, she wore a cheaper one, but one that still flaunted everything that needed showing.

Moving straight to the drinks table, she accepted a fake champaign and moved towards a table, sitting and sipping, content with watching for the time being.

Another Ball. Except, this one was the whole school, it wasn't a secret, and he didn't have to wear a stupid mask that made him uncomfortable. Except, this time, the Ball was not simply a Ball. This Ball was a Valentine's Ball, and Wesley had been invited -- no, asked -- to the Ball by Madison Bishop.

There was simply no way he'd have been able to say no, Madison had helped him when he first came to Hogwarts, and she'd made the transition not easy but bearable. If, of course, you overlooked being thrown in to social circles that you weren't completely comfortable with.

However, Wesley was thankful, so when Madison had asked him, he'd said yes without a second thought.

Before realising he did not have the slightest idea on what he'd gotten himself in to. The choice of clothing was not an issue, he was simply going to reuse the suit he'd worn to the Masquerade party. But, it was everything else. It was Valentine's Day, so he needed to get Madison something, didn't he? So, after asking someone what was normal, Wesley had settled on a single red rose for Madison. That was tradition, he'd been told, which made it easier.

This was the time the questions started, though. Who is your Valentine? Who're you taking to the Ball? Are you two an item? Do you love Madison? Wesley had been a little overcome by these questions, and didn't have an answer for the latter. It had been where the apprehension for the evening had started. He'd not had feelings for someone in that manner except for one other. Wesley had had to pause at that thought, wondering if having feelings for another person after Anastasiya was right...

But, he'd shaken it off. There was no way, in a million years, that Madison Bishop could possibly like him, right?

Moving down to the Hall, Wesley could see Madison stood outside of the hall, as they had agreed, and couldn't help but smile a little upon seeing her. She was something of a rock, someone who made him feel a little bit safer in a world he didn't quite belong. Moving to the Slytherin witch, Wesley held out the rose to her with a timid smile. "For you." He said simply, almost deciding that was enough, before adding. "You look beautiful, by the way."

A Ball. Arthur hated the idea, even more than he hated Valentine's Day. It was such an awful social construct that he had almost flat out refused to come to the party. However, after much thought on the subject -- as Arthur always had to think things through for a time before they became something he was comfortable with -- he'd worked out that if he didn't go to the ball, he would end up hungry.

Sneaking in to the kitchens was just a no -- even if he knew how, the House Elves would be flat out for the Ball, and it would be unfair for him to put them under pressure. Which, therefore meant that he was going to have to attend the Ball, in a bloody suit, to get fed.

Heading in to the ball, feeling very awkward in his suit, Arthur made a beeline to the food table, and continued on to fill it without considering anyone else at all. With a nicely piled plate, the Slytherin made his way to a table -- out of everyone's way -- and sat down. Knife and fork in hand, he tucked in happily, not paying any attention to the party as a whole, because he had absolutely no interest in it at all.

A Valentine's Ball was a great idea, in Caspar's mind. It would give the young males a chance to woo their loved ones, and the young ladies dress up most beautifully outside of classes. It would bring lots of people together, friends, crushes, lovers. Of course, whilst all this was good and fun, he had been asked to make sure the kids didn't step out of line.

After all, Valentine's Day was not always as innocent as roses and teddy bears.

Caspar had made an effort for the evening when he pulled on his white suite and tie. The colour was not one he got to wear often, what with always working outside in dirt. So, he made the opportunity last as he stood up by the punch bowl keeping an eye on it. After all, a spiked punch would not look good on them.

Checking his watch just before the hour, Caspar looked around for a colleague. He surely couldn't be the only one who'd been asked to work tonight, could he?

The Valentine's Ball -- a great idea if you weren't single. Of course, Dimitri had people he liked, but he was a Pureblood male, and couldn't really afford to be seen asking someone to the Ball. So, he simply had to hope that the people he wanted to see were there, and without a date, just like him.

Pulling out his gold suit for the occasion, Dimitri headed down to the ball just after seven o'clock. Making his way to the punch bowl, he greeted the professor as he got a drink before looking around the hall. There were a good number of people here already, but none of the witches he was interested in flirting with.

Still, Dimitri wasn't going to waste his time, so instead he moved over to two witches he knew. Well, he knew one, but that was something. "Hey Zoey." Dimitri said, before turning to the other witch. "Rebekah, isn't it? I'm Dimitri. You both look stunning!" He told them, hoping they wouldn't mind the compliment too much.

tw:scars?

Koda did not often wear dresses. But this was not to say that she'd been opposed to the concept once the invitation had been raised to her eyes. Dresses were not the most practical of clothing. The fabric often frayed and split and one's legs were more than likely always exposed.

She was better off with exposed legs, though, than exposed arms. Her floor-grasping limbs had seen less in this world than the ones that had often spent hours grasping for refuge from the bumps and bruises crushing their way into her skin. Her legs were smooth, only one or two scars peeking out to say hello.

The dress that the Slytherin currently wore exposed both of these previously mentioned features, but a black camosaul, while not the most visually appealing, did the job that it was designed to do.

Her outfit was not the most flattering, but it was not meant to be. Koda had absolutely no interest in seducing any fellow students at tonight's event. Attraction did not build loyalty. In fact, she often questioned why some women assumed that puppy dogs made good sidekicks. What would they do in the face of danger? Go fetch? This was the same reason that she hadn't attended the ball with a partner. The young woman had wanted the freedom to people watch and make connections without worrying about entertaining a date or distraction.

Regardless, Koda walked into the ball to see that a number of people had already arrived. None of these people seemed to catch her eye, so she waited.

Carlotta didn't have a date to the Valentine's Ball, though she didn't see why that would stop her from attending. She could always catch up with friends, have a dance, some food. There was absolutely no shame in going alone to a school wide event. Walking in, she was amazed at the decor. The usually dull Great Hall have been wonderfully transformed- rose petals along the floor, heart-shaped decorations everywhere... And a delightful scent that Carlotta couldn't quite put her finger on, filled the air.

She glanced around, looking for someone she could talk to, or hang out with. Rocking up alone was, of course, different to spending the entire night alone. She was not looking forward to a night spent alone. Her eyes scanned the room, where they fell upon the Slytherin who was sat, out of the way eating. It'd been quite a while since she'd seen him, and honestly, they definitely needed to catch up. She decided to approach the boy, taking the seat beside him.

"Arthur," she beamed "Long time! How are you?"

Stephanie was no stranger to balls. In fact, it felt as if she spent more than half of her life in one ballroom or another. She knew exactly how to dress, behave, dance, act - everything a Pureblood was supposed to be and do. Therein lay her problem. The Valentine's Day Ball served only to remind her of everything she was trying to make sense of. She normally enjoyed these kinds of things and was even the center of attention. But now she was debating within herself if she should go.

Valentine's Day.

You were supposed to go with someone you liked, who fancied you. Stephanie scoffed at the thought as she sat in front of her mirror, staring at her reflection. Not too long ago, boys chased after her, wanting her attention. She'd receive not-so-anonymous love notes and the occasional flower or sweet. Some of them, really wanting to impress her, would even do things for her. But since word got out that the Muggleborn-hating Stephanie Richardson was now attending Muggle Studies, her admirers abandoned her like animals would a forest fire.

All except Toryn.

Getting off her chair, Stephanie opened her wardrobe, her fingers caressing the many different dresses in them before settling on one. It was simple and elegant, the lace covering the bodice encrusted in pure diamonds. The shoulders and top part of the chest was see-through, ending in the slightest hint of a sweetheart neckline. Below the waist, the rest of the dress blossomed into a full skirt. The back was a wide V, ending near the middle of her spine.

She slipped it on, accessorising with a silver double heart necklace and matching silver earrings. To touch everything up, she slipped on nude strappy heels. Some light makeup went on her face before she left for the Great Hall.

A crowd had already entered and it wasn't hard at all to spot her former friends. She tried to approach them but took the hint when they turned their backs on her a deliberately walked away. Sighing, Stephanie made her way to the food and drinks table, her eye scanning the crowd for one person in particular. Perhaps he hadn't arrived yet?

Arriving at the food table, Stephanie saw that it was decorated tastefully. She reached out for a cupcake and caught the sight of a familiar face. "Hello, Briella," Stephanie greeted, her inner fashion critic repulsed by what the other girl was wearing. The color didn't really suit the fair-skinned blonde-haired Slytherin. She would be better off in something red. Or white. Or black. Or even blue. Anything but the drab and dull thing she was wearing, but Stephanie politely kept her mouth shut.

Scarlett had been asked to supervise the Valentine's ball. And she was completely fine with that. All she had to do was make sure the kids didn't start up any fights or do anything illegal. And besides, it gave her an opportunity to get dressed up, and have a slight break from preparing classes and doing paper work and preparations for her job as an auror.

She decided on wearing a yellow dress, that was simple and not overly inappropriate (she was after all, a teacher). After getting ready, she made her way to the Great Hall. Upon arriving, she was stunned at how the Great Hall had been transformed, though glancing around, she only saw one other staff member, the man, Caspar, from that one day at Gringotts, standing by, or more accurately guarding, the punch bowl.

She then decided to approach him "Well, you scrub up nicely," she commented. He was dressed very, very well.

Sophie hated dresses with a passion. They were highly inconvenient and just got in the way of doing things. Jeans and t-shirts were the best way to go, but this blasted ball had a dress code. And on the subject of balls, Sophie disliked them too. First and foremost, she thought they were a complete waste of time. All people did was dance and talk. For pleasure. Why? She didn't understand it. And what made everything worse was that this was a Valentine's Day thing which meant expressing affection for boys. Ewww.

But a few of her friends were going and had cajoled her to come. Sophie - stupidly - gave the excuse that she didn't own any dresses, let alone a cocktail dress (whatever 'cocktail' dresses were supposed to mean). One of the girls offered to lend her a dress, and so, clad in the navy blue nightmare with ruffles down the right side, Sophie made her way to the ball. She'd drawn the line at heels of any sort (why people liked torturing their toes, she didn't know) and had rebelliously put on a pair of black Chuck Taylors - besides, the dress code didn't say anything about shoes. With her feet in heavenly comfort and her body in hellish discomfort, she entered the Great Hall, making a beeline straight for the food table.

Seeing her Professors by the punch bowl, Sophie greeted them. "Hi Professor Loverin, Professor Waters," she said with a smile before peering at the liquid. "What in the world is this?" she questioned, leaning closer to sniff the punch. "It don't smell like punch. Is it safe?"

Savannah definitely had mixed feelings about the ball. As caretaker, she had loads of work to do in terms of decorations, food, security, then cleaning up. Of course, there were the House Elves, but she didn't believe in making them do all the work and so, she'd been running between the Great Hall overseeing the decorations, and the kitchen, making sure the food prep was going well. By the time she was done, she was hot and sweaty and definitely not dressed for the ball.

Twenty minutes before the start of the ball, once she was sure that everything was in place, she'd rushed back to her room and gotten ready, bathing and blow drying her hair. She'd picked out the perfect dress, guaranteed to make Blake ogle. With her hair dried and slightly wavy, she slipped on the dress and worked on her makeup, focusing on her eyes and keeping everything else light. She slipped her earrings on as well as matching heels and glanced into the mirror, satisfied with what she saw.

Arriving at the ball, she saw that it was in full swing and took a moment to appreciate her hard work. It wasn't all fun for her though as she had to make sure that the food kept flowing and nothing awry happened. At least there were Professor present to help her out with that last thing. Not seeing Blake yet, Savannah made her way to where she spotted two other adults. Heels clicking rhythmically on the floor, she walked over to them.

"Making sure no one spikes the punch, I see," she said with a grin.

Jerome hadn't come across anyone that he'd even consider taking to the Valentine's Ball. Surely though, he wouldn't be the only one going alone. After all, it was going on right through dinner time, and even single people had to eat. So he dressed in what he considered, well, 'dressy' clothes. Well, they were the best clothes he had. Immediately walking in and seeing all the girls dressed in pretty dresses, and the boys there dressed in suits, he felt, well, under dressed. He felt almost a little self conscious. He hadn't really expected people to dress so... well.

Shaking off that niggling feeling, he walked into the Great Hall, looking to see if perhaps there were any people to talk to. Shoving his hands into his pockets, he made his way across the room to where the food was and started to get something to eat.

James had been disappointed that he hadn't managed to snap up a date to the Valentine's Day Ball. He really truly did try, it just seemed as though every girl he asked had already been asked by someone else. Was he perhaps a little too forward? A tad too confident, maybe bordering on arrogant? Potentially, was his answer.

Clad in a classic tux he made his way into the Great Hall, amazed by the decorations. He'd made his way to the drinks table, glancing about, trying to see if there was a chance for him to mingle. That was when his eyes fell on a girl sitting near by, wearing a dusky pink dress. And man, she was stunning. She definitely wasn't in his year, must have been older. He took a glass of the non-alcoholic champagne and decided to approach the girl.

"Is this seat taken?" he gestured to the seat beside her.

The news of the Valentine's Ball had been both a great piece of news and horrible. Great, because it was a chance to look fabulous and meet up with friends, have fun, party and forget about classes if even for only a short while. However, the horrible side of this Ball was the reminder that she was single.

Now, this wouldn't usually bother Naomi, except... well, she felt like she needed to make a point. She'd almost asked Damien to the Ball just to make that point, but decided that she probably would be pushing the boy too far after leaving him after they'd done the do.

That had been all she wanted, but the Gryffindor didn't know that.

So, Naomi had turned up with a few of her close friends, dressed up in a white cocktail dress that her friends told her made her look stunning.

They had convened around a table together with drinks in hand, giggling and talking about who they were looking to get in the good books of that evening. Thus far, though, Naomi had not seen the boy she was looking for, and therefore did not put her own answer forward. Only time would tell if she was going to get the outcome she wanted from this evening.

Corbin was not particularly excited for Valentine's Day. It signified commitment, a promise of 'staying with' someone, roses and other romantic gestures that he neither participated in nor enjoyed. However, there were plently of other people attending the ball that wouldn't have dates or were heartbroken and looking for something to take their mind off their problems.

This -- and this alone -- was the reason Corbin stood at the entrance, looking around with a glint in his eyes. He'd not extended an invite to anyone, not that he wanted to, and to his amusement the first few people he saw were ones that he assumed not to have a date, either -- Sienna, a second year Gryffindor (Sophie? Sophia? Something like that; she was too young for him to take any interest in), and a few others here and there. It seemed all the couples had disappeared for now, and that meant he had free run.

Avoiding the Professors huddled in the corner altogether, he took careful note of the layout of the room. Where were the blind spots? He and Lucy had made plans to... provide (at a cost, naturally) alcohol to a few select people, Sienna included. The promise had been made on the condition that the pair of Slytherins were able to find a safe way to do so; if they couldn't, they wouldn't risk being caught.

Spotting a secluded table near the back, Corbin nodded to himself and slipped out his phone, dropping a quick text to his partner-in-crime about it. Across the room, he caught Sienna's eye and then, casually, dipped his head in what would appear as acknowledgement before looking away and at the table. He let his eyes linger on it momentarily before continuing his gaze around the room. He didn't look back at the Ravenclaw, trusting she got his message; she'd pass the message around.

Instead, job done for now, Corbin ventured further into the room, stopping by the drinks table to pick up a fake champaign, greeting his Professors politely. He was, after all, a prefect, and that meant an image he needed to maintain.

Looking around the room once more -- this time to see who he could approach -- he felt a stab of disappointment when he didn't see Elenore before that was replaced by a sense of smug satisfaction. If she wasn't there, that meant he could play without worry of jealousy; women were always... tempremental when it came to emotions, even if technically speaking they weren't together. If nobody knew about it, how could he stay hers sorely? It would be too suspicious.

Besides, the idea of commitment still made his skin crawl.

His eyes fell onto a table of giggling girls and his signature smirk lit up his features. Moving over, casually, slowly, greeting people he knew as he passed, sometimes stopping for a few moments of short conversation, Corbin eventually came to a stop by the table.

"Ladies," he greeted, dipping his head a little. Pleasantries done, he turned his attention to one witch in particular, now ignoring the rest of them entirely. "I must say, Naomi -- you look stunning. Would your date mind terribly if I stole you later for a dance?"

If she had a date or not, Corbin wasn't sure; it killed, therefore, two birds with one stone to ask. If she had one, the permission part would be over. If she didn't, he'd know she didn't.

Sienna switched between sipping at her drink and looking around, keeping an eye out for a particular someone. Corbin and her had what most would describe as a working relationship. They'd slept together exactly once (more to test the other out than anything) and then decided they were better as people who, on occassion, worked together. They were, however, by no means partners or equal; they simply dealt in different areas of work that sometimes crossed paths.

In this case, he was to be their supplier. In exchange for all the times she had alcohol curtesy of him (and Lucy) she promised a discount on things that they might need in the future -- if she didn't pay for the alcohol now. They came to an agreement after some discussion.

But before Corbin arrived, someone else was approaching her, and she turned her attention to the... it took her a moment to place him. Gryffindor. Younger year. Pureblood.

Interesting, she thought, taking him in. If he'd been anybody else, she'd have written him off as another male merely attracted to her looks and not worth anything -- but he was a Byrne, a Pureblood, and by the way he was looking at her it was obvious he was one of those who were extremely susceptible to her abilities.

She flashed him a smile and winked. "That depends," she said, eyes glinting. "How badly do you want it?" She paused, and let out a slight laugh, then reached out to gently touch his arm. "Of course you can," she said, gesturing towards it. "Please, join me. Nobody else seems to want to."

It was then, across the room, she caught sight of Corbin. They exchanged looks, after which she turned to look at the table he indicated before nodding inwardly. Later, once he gave her the signal, she'd start telling her friends where to get the alcohol from.

Zoey looked up and smiled when she saw Dimitri had walked over and was now talking to her and Rebekah. She pushed a strand of hair out of her face "Hello Dimitri. You look quite handsome tonight." She said blushing a bit as she sipped her drink that she had picked up when she first arrived. 

Rebekah noticed that Zoey was a bit nervous around the boy and smiled. She made a mental note to remember the boys name, Dimitri. She smiled and looked at him "Yes, I am Rebekah. Rebekah Carlton. Its a pleasure to meet you Dimitri." She said before looking around a bit. 


She noticed a few waiters were walking around with food and drinks on trays. She managed to grab a drink for herself since the other two already had glasses and took a sip  "So, how do you two know each other?" She asked, assuming it was since they were in the same house, but still loving to here stories.

A mouthful of pork pie was about the time that Carlotta de Santis had arrived at the Ball and stood before him. Eyes widening slightly upon taking the witch in and realising that in that moment he could not answer the question posed to him, Arthur held up a finger in the universal sign of 'wait' before concentrating on swallowing the mouthful he'd taken.

He hadn't seen Carlotta in a long while, and tonight she looked... well, beautiful.

The only problem was Arthur Peadarsan was not very good at being thrown off his usual ideas. Finding Carlotta at the Ball, whilst not an impossibility, was not something that Arthur has put in to his plans for the evening. And yet, the teenage boy in him was insisting he stay at the Ball.

Finally swallowing the pork pie, Arthur gave Carlotta a small smile. "Hi." He said simply, his voice not quite coming out in it's usual tone in that moment. "I'm fine, you? You... look great, too." Arthur heard himself saying, before realising what he'd actually said and his eyes went slightly wider than usual. "Who's your date?" He asked quickly, trying to change the subject, but not really moving away from her.

Caspar poured himself a glass of punch and took a sip from it, looking off around the room at those who had arrived thus far. The students had all scrubbed up nicely, and it was nice to see the calmness of the situation ensuing around the Hall. Hopefully, there would be nothing untoward tonight, and the school could simply enjoy themselves as a whole.

His mind was elsewhere by the time he was greeted by his colleague, Professor Waters, and he jumped slightly when he was spoken to, before playing it off with a warm smile. "Thank you, you look quite lovely yourself, if I may say so. Your dress would have looked lovely with a ferne irene hair piece..." He said, referring to their first meeting, which had ended up with him spending a night in custody (mistakenly) because of Auror Waters.

"Perhaps..." Caspar added, taking one of the roses from the table and taking out a wand. Transfiguring it in to the flower he'd been speaking of, he held it out to her with a nervous smile. "You can make do with this."

However, before Caspar could say another word, one of his favourite students arrived and he smiled at Sophie's question. "It's fine, Sophie. Professor Balan, reluctantly, aided us in making the punch smell like Amortentia, without the infatuation part." He explained, before motioning to the drink in his hand. "I've had some, it just... smells like the things you love most." He added, hoping this would make the Gryffindor feel a little more at ease.

The arrival of another one of the staff from Hogwarts -- the new Caretaker -- put Caspar slightly on edge. The Caretaker had an aura about her of a powerful woman, not one to be messed with, and therefore, he found her a little bit intimidating. Add to that she was beautiful and he was now stood talking to two very beautiful women, didn't make the social aspect of the evening very easy for Caspar at all.

"Umm... well, it's already been 'spiked' if you count Professor Balan's work." Caspar told the witch in a lame joke to try and make himself feel more at ease. But the nervous laugh emitted from his own lips proved that it hadn't helped at all.

Dimitri smiled at the compliment that was sent his way by Zoey. "Thank you, Zoey." He replied kindly to the compliment, taking a sip of his drink as he noticed the witch was blushing. Merlin only knew what that was girl signs for, but he didn't wish to get in to that.

"It's lovely to meet you, Rebekah, I've heard of you from Zoey before now, so it's good to finally put a face to a name." The Ravenclaw admitted with a warm smile. Being charming, after all, was not overly difficult to achieve in such a situation.

"Oh, we're in the same house, but I'm a couple of years ahead of Zoey. We had lunch together one day, that's about all there is to the story, really." Dimitri explained with a carefree attitude. That had been all that had happened, so there really wasn't much to elaborate on.

"So, do you ladies have dates for this evening?" Dimitri asked out of politeness in that moment.

Sophie listened as Professor Loverin explained the liquid in front of her. She didn't trust Professor Balan but she trusted her Herbology Professor. If he said it was okay to drink, it was okay to drink. At any rate, she was glad it didn't have the infatuation effect. She wouldn't have liked seeing people lip locking everywhere. That was just plain disgusting. "Oh," Sophie said, dragging the syllable out. It was no wonder she could detect the familiar smell of horse and hay. It would be weird drinking something that smelled of that but Sophie was never one to back down from trying new and weird things. Taking a cup, she carefully scooped the liquid in before moving down to where the food was.

Spotting someone from her house, a year younger, Sophie headed towards him, trying to recall his name. It started with a "J", she knew. She scanned the table, as if she was looking for something to eat, buying time so she could figure out his name. It was something like Jerry but she knew it wasn't Jerry. Oh, right! Jerome.

"Hey, Jerome," she began, sending the first year a smile. "Anything good to eat here?"
