The current conversation was one that centralised around a Gryffindor seventh year who Naomi simply didn't see why the others found so attractive. In her opinion, if you put the boy on a scale from one to ten, he would peak at a seven on a good day, if you were being kind. Which, Naomi rarely ever did.

Switching off from the conversation without a care for the feelings of those speaking, Naomi's eyes scanned the room. It was quickly filling up, many people arriving some with dates, some without. Most of the people there weren't of interest, but as her eyes fell on a certain Slytherin, a small smile touched her lips.

Corbin had decided to come to the party, seemingly alone.

The fun could begin then. Her eyes moved away before he could catch her looking, though, picking up the conversation where it had moved on to, with the girls talking about whether one Joshua Abbott would make the event. Rolling her eyes internally at the mention of that idiot, Naomi almost wished she hadn't bothered.

However, out of the corner of the eye she noted Corbin moving. Concentrating on the unoriginal conversation until he announced himself to the group. There were some, of course, who giggled upon the arrival of Corbin, and fluttered their eyelashes at him in a desperate hopeful ploy to get his attention. Which, therefore, meant Naomi received a few huffy looks when Corbin turned his attention to her.

"I wish I could say the same for you, Henderson." Naomi replied to her fellow Slytherin complimented the way she looked. She was teasing him, of course, but there was no way she was going to aiding his over inflated ego. The question he posed brought a smile to her lips. "If you think I need permission to dance with you from another, you're sadly mistaken. I'll see if I can find a time to dance with you later, though." She told him, playing the question off as nothing.

It was nothing, wasn't it? She had no interest in Corbin Henderson.

And that was precisely what she would keep telling herself.

When Prim heard that there was going to be Valentine's Day Ball her eyes were already starry and her mind had literally flitted to what dress to wear, what makeup to put on, what shoes to get and what hairstyle to do. It had literally been the only thing on her mind for a week before the ball that she literally daydreamed in class and unfortunately for her that ended up with some point losses but she hadn't minded, not really, she would just get it back in the next lesson anyway.

The day of the ball had literally been a rush in the girls dorms of the Gryffindor house, all the fifth year girls doing the other's hair and make-up, giving their own opinions on how things should go after each of them had taken their showers, doing their nails at the same time and just generally enjoying some girl-time together.

Prim had been the first one to put on her dress and get ready for the ball, her make-up and hair is fairly simple and subtle, to not make it clash with the dress and deciding to let her natural beauty to show just this once, only accented slightly by the makeup that she had put on.

Making her way down to the common room, Prim took a seat on the couch that faced the way down from the boy's dorm, eagerly awaiting Max who hopefully would show up to go with her to the Ball. She had told him that if he wanted to go with her then she would be waiting down at the foot of the stairs for him and that's what she was doing.

Waiting for Max and hoping that he would show up.

Roxanne enjoyed balls, there was no denying that, and because of that she loved dressing up in pretty and cute dresses however for this particular ball she was going to go for daring and sexy, something that she was quite sure would make quite a few people frown in annoyance and disbelief but for one night she at least wanted to let her hair down and party.

She had been asked by quite a few guys to go with them but Roxy had just rebuffed them coldly with a simple 'I'm going to have fun and not be tied to one guy all night' thus any talk of Roxy going with anyone had been quickly and coldly shot down by the woman herself who had plans to genuinely enjoy herself and not sulk in a corner because some guy invited her who didn't like dancing.

Finding a dress hadn't been hard, she had just owled one of her friends in Germany who knew what she wanted and the slightly older girl had owled back the dress that Roxy wanted along with the shoes and she had also recommended what sort of hairstyle and makeup to do.

Following her friends' advice Roxy had one of the older Ravenclaw's help her with her make up and hair before she had slipped on her dress and shoes and stood in front of the seventh year witch who just chuckled at Roxy and shook her head before telling her to have fun and she had been shooed out of the room.

Finding her way to the ball location, Roxy stepped inside and looked blankly at the love hearts fluttering above her head before shaking her head, thank Merlin she hadn't come in with a guy, this probably would've ended ugly. She was going to enjoy this ball and no-one would ruin it for her.

With Valentine's Day here, Max had not really thought about it. Yes, he had a girlfriend. Yes, he liked her very much. But he was not a conventional romantic, and Valentine's Day wasn't going to make him one. Which had been why he hadn't asked Primrose to the Valentine's Day Ball, even though almost everyone had insisted he should have.


Why did society need to make a day specific to showing someone you liked them very much? Why could you not like them very much all the days of the year? Whatever the reason, Max hadn't thought of it too much, until Prim said she was going. Which was where she'd said she'd like him to go with her, which meant he had to -- this, he'd been told by a boy in his dorm who'd overheard.

Which was precisely the reason Max had come down the stairs, just before seven, in a suit that was less mismatched than his first option had been because he'd been forced to put on another one by the boy's in the dorm who'd told him his first one looked ridiculous.

A flower -- a rose -- was in his hand as he stood before Prim, one of the boy's had (with an exasperated sigh) explained that this was the tradition, and that Max, apparently, owed him big time.

"Hey Prim!" Max greeted, a fond smile on his lips as he took in her outfit of choice. "You look..." But words failed the Gryffindor and instead he held out the rose to her to avoid having to speak.

Jerome had been in the middle of piling his plate with, well, anything and everything that looked or smelt nice. He'd always had eyes bigger than his stomach, and never, ever turned down food. One of the good things about Hogwarts was that there was always plenty of food, he hadn't gone hungry once, which was a refreshing change.

He glanced up upon realising that a girl, someone he recognised from the year above (through seeing occasionally in the common room), was talking to him. Was it Sophie? Sophia? He had the feeling it might be Sophia, or perhaps that was because it was his mother's name.

He turned to her, flashing her a grin "Pretty much everything," he grabbed some cutlery "Though I'm not fussy, I'll eat anything,".

That was when he caught the familiar scent of fairy floss, that seemed to be coming from the girl's cup "Why is your drink so fragrant?" he asked.

Wearing one of his favourite suits (which, in his opinion he looked damn fine in), he walked into the Great Hall on the night of the Valentine's Ball. Fashionably late of course. Was it still considered fashionably late if he'd taken a nap and only woke up minutes before he'd turned up at the event? Eli thought so at least. Besides, napping meant he'd be refreshed, ready to party all night. Plus, it wasn't like it took him long to get ready, all he had to do was shower and throw on his suit. His hair was just, well, left how it usually was. Curly and sticking up everywhere. He'd long given up trying to tame it, and actually embraced it. It summed up his personality perfectly.

He stood for a moment in the entry way, taking it all in before he decided to head in, maybe to find a friend.

Valentine's Day was of no interest to Mathew. In any way, shape or form. It was a day where men made fools of themselves by showing a side of themselves much too soft to inspire a woman to truly want them -- after all, the natural pull was on someone who could make you feel protected, not a man dressed as a love heart, spouting poetry and proposing. The tradition of Valentine's Day had long since worn itself from being something Mathew acknowledged.

However, he'd had to acknowledge it that morning when he'd received not one, not two, but five Valentine's Day cards from different people. For whatever reason. Mathew had found great joy in taking out his Zippo lighter and watching each one shrivel in the flames in to a pile on his chest of drawers. The ashes had smouldered for a while, and a mark was left even after the House Elves had tried to repair it.

The Hufflepuff had almost written off the rest of the day to a day of abandoned plans -- after all, if he was getting Valentine's in his own room, the rest of the castle would be most insufferable with the gushing of other people. Except, as he stepped in to the common room that morning, he'd been reminded that the Valentine's Day Ball was on tonight. Everyone was going.

Mathew had made a detour at this point, slipping out of the castle to Hogsmeade to purchase a new suit for the evening. If everyone was going to be there, he was going to have to be there too.

Which was why Mathew stood in the shadows, suited in a classic black suit and avoiding everyone in the room. He was waiting for only one person to show up. The red headed witch from Ravenclaw, a witch who... stood out to him in a manner no other could. A witch who had a link with Dark Magic, and yet... Mathew could not place a finger on the feelings he had, for he simply did not understand the pull that consumed him when thoughts of Roxanne Förstner.

It didn't take long for the Förstner heiress to turn up to the Ball, Mathew's eyes picked out her auburn hair the moment she entered the room. The icy blue eyes of the Hufflepuff's grew by half upon taking her in, but he made no move to head towards her.

Sipping his drink, Mathew simply stood watching, out of sight, but waiting for the right moment.

This was not yet it.

The fact that she had coldly shot down the guys that asked her seemed to not have deterred any of them from coming up to her to ask for a dance thus the girl had been, pretty much, forced to dance with one or two of them just to keep them happy; in truth she just wanted to join the many single girls on the dance floor and have some fun with them but dancing with a guy was equally as fun, especially when said guy was a hot one and had some dancing skills.

Through the first hour, Roxanne alternated between sipping her drink and just generally interacting with the people around her before she accepted the requests for a dance; a ball, or a party in general, was meant for dancing after all and if some of the dances were a bit more on the intimate side then she enjoyed was no consequence for her for the day at least.

Languidly moving against her latest partner, Roxanne moved her body to the beat of the music, her eyes closed as she ignored the obvious sexual way the guy was moving against her; she wasn't going to be welcoming any advances like that from people she didn't know, who wanted to get between her thighs.

The night would, hopefully, prove to be a fun one and not one where she would have to storm off in a huff because a guy couldn't take a hint when she would say no.

Valentine's Day. The worst day on earth, Elyah was one hundred percent sure about it. It was the time that all the couples decided to be all lovey dovey and fluffy and it made Elyah sick. No, she was not jealous, she was simply not up for all that drama. She couldn't understand what all this fuss was about, but Valentine's day had turned their lives upside down and Elyah hated it.

All you could see was couples. Everywhere. And hearts. And presents. And boys treating girls as if they were princesses. But the most annoying this was that it was just for one day. Like, why? If you like the girl, why do you wait for Valentine's Day to ask her out, or show her how much she means to you? If you actually have feelings for the girl, everyday should be Valentine's Day.

But she knew that there was no running away from it, since even Hogwarts had decided to celebrate! At first, she had claimed she wouldn't attend the damned Ball, since she didn't have a date, neither was she going to run after little boys. Nuh uh. Elyah was a lady, and she would never stoop that low. And the worst part about attending was the fact that she would have to watch her BFF, Max, being all sweet and loving to someone else.

And that was when it hit her. She was jealous. She was extremely jealous that Max would be paying attention to someone else, while she would be alone. She needed some attention. She deserves it. It wasn't as if she was ugly. Which meant the Ball was the perfect opportunity to show just what she got.

It took her a lot of search and a lot of persuasion from Elyah to get Nero to buy her that specific dress and actually let her wear it, but he was her father, and eventually, he gave in. Elyah had learned how to handle her father a long time ago. After all, she was his daughter. He should have seen that coming.

And now here she was, dressed for the Ball... and scared to go inside the damn Hall. She was walking in a circle, constantly fixing her dress and checking herself. Her clothes were fine. Her makeup was fine as well, a simple eyeliner with nude lips. And her very long hair was tied up in a messy, yet elegant bun. She looked beautiful. She just had to believe it.

Taking a couple of deep breaths, Elyah finally made the decision. Pushing the doors open, she walked inside, her eyes widening in awe. It was beautiful. The atmosphere was so.. romantic. A part of her wanted to gag, but the bigger part of her felt fuzzy. She liked it!

Looking around, she rolled her eyes when she found out that, of course, there was no alcohol, and instead started walking around, trying to find one of her friends, Lucy, in desperate search of some alcohol. This was going to be a looong evening.

It seemed as though Carlotta had caught Arthur, a little by surprise, while he was in the middle of a rather large mouthful of pie. It was rather amusing, and her lips curled into a smirk, amused by his reaction. But eventually he swallowed, and started talking.

"I'm well," she replied, her tone light and bubbly "And thank you! You look pretty great yourself," she returned the compliment. In all honesty, she hadn't expected him to actually be at the ball, he didn't seem the type. So it was a pleasant surprise.

"Uh, no date," she responded to his question. No one had asked her, and she hadn't asked anyone. She wasn't about to deny herself a night of fun purely because she had no date.

"What about you?" she nudged him playfully "You're all dressed up, for someone special?" she asked, giving a wink along with the question.
