Pick Up Sticks With Branchy- The Game

47 posts in this topic

Still scouring the area, Fin was determined to be the first to find branchy.  He had been unknowingly swiped by Bowtruckle before in the forbidden forest, as well as stumbled upon him on the lawn with fellow first years Lindy and Estella; so he was hoping to have the same luck once more.  The Hufflepuff reached downward and gently grabbed a small branch that he swore he saw moving.  Grabbing it gently, Fin lifted it up and said a loud "I think I got someone special right here!"

Fletcher had always been sort of a tinkering type of person. He liked playing around with stuff (so long as it entertained him) and trying to make new, interesting things out of it. He especially liked finding things from nature. Nature was a lot more useful than people realized, and not just for the obvious reasons. Of course he always avoided plucking things that were still living and instead went for the fodder that had already hit the ground.

 

It was a nice enough day for scavenging material. It seemed some of the other kids had the same idea because they were looking around for stuff too. Or maybe they were playing a game. Either way, he joined them in the hunt for good sticks.

So it would seem that his prank of slapping the back of Fin's legs didn't go over so well, and by that, River frowned slightly as Fin seemed unfazed by the incident.

 

having a quick look around where as it seemed everyone else was finding more awesome sticks than him, and his team, River know how to solve this problem!  Reaching. Down and picking up a pile of sticks, the bent back upright and beamed.  "Does this mean we're back in the race?!"

Fin had waited for River to let his guard down, as he had seen his attention go back to searching for branches and sticks.  Taking advantage of the opportunity, Fin grabbed a short thin branch and snuck up behind his best friend.  Taking a big golf style swing, Fin shouted "Fore!" As he swung his stick into the back of River's calf.  On the upswing, the Hufflepuff shot the stick straight up in the air and said a loud.  "I got myself a good smacking stick!"

All Fern could do was just glare at her team mates for a moment, if you could call them that, then she simply shrugged and made her way back to the pile. At least they were actually helping now, and they weren't hitting her with the sticks. And on the plus side, there seemed to be no bugs or fire, so hopefully she could finally just look for her stick in peace. Too bad she didn't know the summoning charm yet, or else she'd just summon the bowtruckle, because he was definitely more important than the game at hand. 

 

She did know the levitation charm, however, so she reached in the pile and pulled out a stick then raised her wand and muttered 'Wingardium Leviosa' and lifted the stick right out of Fin's hand. No smacking stick = more time to help, because Fern wanted to w i n.

Well looking for these sticks couldn't be that hard. That was something Tori kept tell herself at this point. Also that her team was win maybe but she didn't care this point. She just knew that she want find a stick . Well she want to find stick that was just right . so she went look in the interior and start to look around . Maybe she would find one there and she hope she would.  Mostly if she did she could find another stick. but either way this game was super fun indeed. "Guys you are both doing an awesome job" she said to her team mates." she said

Repocketing her blowtorch having apparently taught Siobhan a lesson, Cordy returned to supervising while skipping around the teams. Oh how she was tempted to give Mr. Torchy's trigger a squeeze when Fin got a bit too close to Mr. Branchy for her liking. Apparently, being a teenager had taught her some willpower, the key word being sum of course.

 

 

After realizing that River and Fin were the two jousting with twigs she had seen earlier, Cordy decided it was best to move along and see what Tori was doing. "Go Tori! Find the sticks! JUST NOT BRANCHY!"

Cody's words of encouragement hadn't been targeted at her, which was like really rude on her part. Were they not housemates? Did she not deserve encouraging words? She made a mental note to not ever cheer on Cordelia in anything ever again as payback for this disservice - might as well add to not cheer on Kimber as well, since those two were a, like, two bodies one soul sort of deal.

Cordy's words were somewhat encouragement to Tori. But the blonde knew that she was going be looking for a while for another stick. She did want make sure she didn't find branchy. Branchy was probably enjoy the company of his fellow stick brother. So she went to the look for the interior stick and look for it very hard. Sure this was probably not going be easy job. Maybe it was going be messy but the blonde was up for it." Thanks you Cordy for you kind word and i hope to find a cool stick." she said.

Branchy was bored. It seems like no one was able to clear up these sticks. He just hoped that maybe they would leave soon and he could get back to him home. Knowing that the second he stood up that someone would be looking for him, and he didn’t want to deal with that. There was so many people there.

Prompt Time: Cordy isn’t paying attention, she went off to look for Kimber, and while she is gone everyone is looking for two sticks at a time. For this prompt any sticks you find successful will be worth double points.

 

points are fixed from the last post, math is not our friend.

Fin was just about to take another swing towards River's shin's when all a sudden the branch was yanked out of his hand by some invisible force.  Twisting his head around, Fin saw his friend and team mate Fern with wand in hand directed towards his direction; though it was pointed at his smacking stick which was slowly levitating away from him.  "Hey! Give me Smacky Back!" the Hufflepuff shouted playfully as he sprinted forward and grabbed back onto the levitating stick, putting his body's weight against it. 

 

His hands slipping, Fin fell backwards onto the grass next to a small stash of sticks.  Rolling onto his side, Fin grabbed a branch in each hand and sat up on his knees, raising each stick over head while he surveyed the area looking for Cordy.  Shrugging, he turned his attention towards the first year Ravenclaw.   "Now I got two smacking sticks!" the Hufflepuff shouted excitedly as he began to race towards River one more.

Fern grinned as she teased Fin, lifting the stick higher and higher. Once out of reach though, he seemed to lose interest and she let the stick go and fall to the ground, away from the pile. Her plan worked for approximately five seconds, because the Hufflepuff grabbed two sticks this time and was back at it. She shrugged, figuring she was on her own for this one. 

 

She reached into the pile, wiggling her hand around. She still wanted to find the bowtruckle, but thought all of the commotion may have scared if off for a bit. If she was a truckle, she would want to be as far away from fire and chaos as possible. Instead she sought out a regular old stick from the outside of the pile and one on the inside, as well- if she was lucky it would be the mysterious, elusive bowtruckle but it would probably be just another regular boring stick.

Ryan felt like she was letting her partner down. "It's nice to meet you, Shiver," the brunette said with a smile, though worry shown in her eyes. They weren't picking up as many sticks as the other people. On further study, the Hufflepuff was able to gauge that there were teams that had formed. Ryan grabbed onto Shiver's hand and then said, "Come on, let's try and find sticks together! If we work as a team, we can do it!" Her eyes scanned for a stick; perhaps a Bowtruckle in the mix.

Cordelia wasn't exactly the best of supervision - how had she even gotten that job, wasn't she only a year or two older than Rowan was? Wasn't that like asking a slightly larger god to watch a smaller one? That thought sent her off on a day dream of a mastiff and a corgi having a day together. The hulking mastiff holding the corgi's leash in his mouth as they went for a walk. A small giggle escaped her at the thought - gosh it would be so cute. 

 

When she came back to reality, Cordy was nowhere to be found. Which kind of proved her point that she wasn't good supervision. Realizing she was unmonitored she reached for as many sticks as she could carry.

Who would have thought that picking up sticks would have been fun? Truthfully, though, Ry liked playing games like this with her brothers back home. Everyone but Riley always indulged her, and Alexz was always up for playing a game with her. That was the joy of having a younger sibling. With no siblings at Hogwarts, Ryan instead stuck close to Shiver, though, when she caught sight of Rowan nearby, she waved happily at the girl, before getting back to the game.

Digging her hands in deeper, Fern was maybe, kinda looking for any movements deep inside the pile. After doing so much research on bowtruckles for her COMC internship, she found it interesting that a bowtruckle would be inside the pile of sticks and twigs. Was he lost? Hurt? Did Cordy just put him there, since she was his friend or whatever? And if she was his friend, why did set the pile on fire? The bowtruckle should just be her friend instead, she decided.

 

She let her hand hang there for a moment, and when she felt no such movements she grabbed two sticks and pulled them out to examine them. What if they were Wiggentree sticks? And they were magical wood? So much curiosity, no one to answer the questions.

Alecia had gotten distracted. She found herself staring at the clouds in the sky instead of looking for more sticks. This game was proving to not be as exciting as she thought it would be. Her head came out of the clouds only to realizing that Cordy had left. The blond could care less where she had gone. Now that her head was out of the clouds, Alecia attempted to find some more sticks.

Shiver was still traumatized by her roommate’s attempt to make her into a bonfire and had therefore dropped her most recent stick, only refocusing as she noticed her teammate picking up sticks at a much faster rate. “Sorry Ryan, I got distracted!” Shiver apologized hurriedly, noting her roommate had moved away from the game slightly. No chance of getting burned by Mr. Torchy for now. Shiver used this to her advantage and leaned down to try to catch up with Ryan. “Oh, this one looks like a good one!”

Tori was never the distract one. The again the blonde was glad to be look for more stick. She like the sticks anyway. She did also notice the rest of her team was looking for the same amount sticks as she was. So she knew that this was going be somewhat interesting and also fun. The blonde eagerly decided to re look for the same stick that she was looking for since this was something she was good at. For today this was the task of the blonde and she was going be master at it.

Apparently this was some kind of game after all. Fletcher had honestly just come to look for good material for stuff, but if there was a game involved he figured he might as well join them. People were picking up even more sticks now and he was already behind so he started picking up the pace. He usually had a good eye for which sticks were the best, though with so many other kids searching for them he didn’t know if there’d be any good ones left for him.

The human still had not come back, and now these kids were picking up as many sticks as they wanted. He didn't like this one bit, he was moving to the left and the right so many times trying not to get picked up. It didn't work, someone had gotten him. Branchy hoped that they were nice and wouldn't be mean to him.

Were the humans leaving, that made Branchy happy. Hoping that he would be able to get some rest now and enjoy the rest of his day. First thing was, he had to check on his tree and make sure that no one messed with it. Some of these humans were strange, he already had to claw one before.
