Rumor Wall

61 posts in this topic

In the loo, there was a wall.

 

As walls in Hogwarts go, it was not a particularly strange or unique wall. Simply an expanse of stone, smooth and cool from the lake overhead. But unlike other walls in the school which were occasionally magical, talking, spotted, or otherwise, this wall was covered in graffiti.

 

A variety of handwriting and inks speckled the wall, with snippets of rumors layered upon each other. Here and there one could see dried soap, from where people had tried to Scourgify the wall into oblivion.

 

But here it remained, standing the test of time, a testament to the gossip and social networking of Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

 

[ooc:]

The Rumor wall is now open! Each year there will be a post noting the new year. Feel free to post rumors, true or otherwise, about characters and relationships.

A toilet. That was all she needed. She hadn't needed to be reminded that there were people around the school with silly things like crushes and obsessions with others. Buddy glared at the wall. Both names were familiar, but she'd been under the impression that Mercutio was... well, not involved with a first year.

After taking care of business, she walked over to the wall and stared at the words. How odd... Hailey, her classmate, didn't seem to mind outing herself. It was almost foolishly brave.

Buddy scribbled out the gross amount of hearts and simply wrote in their place:


HAILEY ROCKS + MERCUTIO BATES = <3 <3 <3 !!!!!

He's older. He's smarter. He's stronger. Become an equal and you might stand a chance.

Kimber was getting tired of this. He wasn't fully sure why he was here. Maybe he'd wandered in on accident? He'd never tell.

 

Mercutio + Desmond

Obviously Des is the only one Merc will ever love.

Kelly stared, baffled, at the rumor wall, which seemed dominated by an obsession with Mercutio Bates. She was thoroughly confused beyond all measures. Mercutio, he was a nice guy and all, but he wasn't particularly handsome or spectacular in any way, so why were all these girls obsessed with him?

 

There were only two viable reasons:

1. He'd written all these comments himself, disguised handwriting in various ways.

2. He'd doused the school with love potions.

 

Two seemed more plausible, and Kelly was happy she hadn't gotten a whiff of it. She, however, thought she ought to make people aware.. it was her duty..

 

And so she wrote.

 

WARNING HOGWARTS: YOU MUST BEWARE OF MERCUTIO'S STRONG LOVE POTIONS. proof-this wall

Bryony was in the bathroom actually going to the toilet between classes.

 

It was then that she paused to look at the rumour wall. It was interesting so see what was apparently going on around the school.

 

She sighed as her eyes scanned over it. Everyone's obsession with Mercutio was getting irksome at this stage. sure he was good looking, but she didn't see why everybody was so obsessed with him. It was actually sort of freaky the lengths some people seemed to be going.

 

She shook her head, drying her hands. And left without adding to the wall.

Rosie Roux is the best
- Dorothy Talbot


Dottie had not written that, Rosie had. In her left hand because she was clever at forgery and knew people would figure out she had written the complimentary graffiti if she used her regular hand. They didn't have CSI in pureblood land, but she was aware of these truth avoiding methods.

With her right hand, Rosie wrote her response:

 

Thank you Dottie! Love you too ❤
- Rosie


She had like two friends and a big ego, don't judge her attempts to look more popular and feel loved D:

You couldn't have missed that dance when they were all over the tables in great hall. So it was no surprise it ended up on the Wall:

 

 

Savvy & Maks and their hot

Argentine tango!

Woooooooohooooooooooo

Borrowing the thickest marker she could find, Addison stomped up to the haunted bathroom to leave the newest message about Mercutio Bates on the rumor wall.

 

HEY ALL YOU HATERS, BACK OFF.

MERCUTIO BATES IS MY BOYFRIEND.

LITERALLY. GO ASK HIM IF YOU WANT.

IF YOU'VE GOT A PROBLEM WITH

THAT, TELL IT TO MY FACE IN THE GREAT HALL.

- ADDISON TOFT, GRYFFINDOR SECOND YEAR

 

Capping the marker, she nodded to herself. The message was clear and unambiguous - nothing about it could be mis-interpreted. Before leaving, she raised her magical camera and snapped a photo for Mercutio to see.

Dorothy stared at the black marked writing, after just visiting the Great Hall and finding it out for herself, she'd wished she'd seen the message prior. It would surely have saved her the shock. With a sad little smile, Dorothy took out her own pink marker and decided to write beside it.

 

please respect their relationship, people


Merlin knew there were some that surely wouldn't.

Chiron couldn't believe his eyes when he read the large, bold black writing! Although if Merc did play away, Toft would be more then capable of removing his man hood then other girls he knew!

 

Let's see him stray from Toft!

New balls please!

Happy, Chiron felt he should actually try talking to the lad, see if the tales had been true?!

Dorothy groaned and slapped her hand to her forehead out of sheer irritation. Didn't people understand that Mercutio was not a piece of meat? Goodness people, control yourselves!

CONTROL YOURSELVES. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Chiron went back to see if anything new had been put up and was rather fearful for whom ever wrote next and he had to leave them something.

 

Whom ever made the jib about Toft,

Run!!! Don't look back and always

keep moving, change your name and

never seek out a crowd!

Kermit was getting annoyed. Mercutio Bates was his team mate [thus awesome and a role model] and Addison Toft was his explorer friend. He grabbed the pen, and put a circle around words written in a pink marker.

 

please respect their relationship, people

<---- this person makes sense. listen to them! seriously, people start dating all the time. i think they happen to make an adorable couple.

There was yet more romance drama? Ugh. Rosie had officially had it.

NO ONE CARES


She scrawled the comment under the comment about Addison lying about dating Mercutio. Though she agreed with the claim Addison was a troll, a healthy dose of blood prejudice allowing Rosie to see eye to eye with the otherwise delusional girl on that front.

Bathrooms were normally where Al drew the line at breaking rules. The girls' room was for girls and the boys' room was for boys. But he had heard that this one girls room hosted the rumor wall. Also girls tended to avoid this bathroom for some reason.

 

He went to the rumor wall to see what the juicy gossip was. Apparently, this Mercutio person could not decide to who to date. Well the only Mercutio that he knew was the quid player and he had advice for the boy.

 

 

Mercutio should probably just focus on himself. He's not that hot anyway.

 

 

There that should stir the pot. Job done.

She had some teacher hate to put up. Using her neatest writing she wrote the following :

 

Professor Knaggs isn't very nice :( - HR

 

 

Professor Gainsborough is very vain. Be should be called Professor Vainsborough ! - HR

 

Haha !

Kay, so, back in the common room, where she’d first dreamed up this big ol’ plan of hers, sneaking off to the rumor wall seemed like a way better idea than it did right now. Flynn’s wand dangled limply in her hand, forgotten, as she poured over the jumbled heap of messages. Dude, Mercutio was way, way more popular than she’d realized. And since when were he and Addison dating?! Jeez, she was so far out of the loop it was kinda sad.

Whatevz, she could lament her pathetic social life later. It was mission time. Flynn muttered an incantation and jabbed her wand at a blank spot on the wall. It now read:

WANTED : INFORMATION ON WHEREABOUTS OF MISSING FOURTH YEAR GRYFFINDORS

REWARD -

She paused here, checking her pockets for loose change.

REWARD - - 15 SICKLES

That oughta do it. Time to scram. Well...maybe just two more notes.

Flynn Daniels has really pretty hair.

live that forbidden forest life #yolo

Perfect.

Feeling rather upset with himself, the young eagle had to show people he was truly sorry for what he had done! So he pulled out his wand and begun to write on the wall in big letters.

 

 

Chiron Drakon is SORRY!

I am a fool & an idiot!

Have a good day!

Feeling he best get off to class, he quickly made his exit!
