VH35 First Year Snowball Fight {Open}

52 posts in this topic

Jacky hadn't been too pleased to have to go outside in this cold weather. There was snow all around, but Herbology class still needed to be had. 

 

After all was said and done, all he wanted to do was to get up to the warmth of the castle and get some grub into him. 

 

He was in the middle of slumping up the lawn with the other first year , minding his own business when suddenly someone had yelled out 

 

"SNOWBALL FIGHT!!!" 

 

Then one hit him in the back of the head. He didn't even know how to react he just ran.

 Nothing serious. Just the first years hanging out. Everyone welcome. Lets not get too violent xD

Dressed in a black scarf and some green mittens (to show her Slytherin pride), Asha was just prepared to go back inside to the Great Hall and eat with her fellow classmates when she heard the scream.

 

A wicked smile crossing her face, Asha quickly leapt down to avoid any snowballs that might be crossing her path and rolled to her right. She picked up a large batch of snow and packed it together before she launched one straight for one of the other first years that was streaking across her path. 

 

"TAKE THIS!" she shouted with a grin.

Herbology was literally the worst, and she hated how cold it had become. Nearly two years in the United Kingdom and she hadn't become used to the weather. 

 

As she was making her way back to the castle, a snowball hit her in the back.

 

"Hey!" she couldn't decide if she was mad or annoyed or wanted to join in to the snowball fight. Shrugging, she then scooped up some snow, formed it into a ball and threw it at another student leaving the class.

JAcky frantically woked trying o make some snowballs and stock pile so he wouldn't be the worst in this war. 

 

"uhhh.uhhhh..." His tongue stuck out as he concentrated. 

 

Then he took his life into his hands and threw one a little haphazardly at Asha.

 

But then he realised he should go the whole hog, and chucked one at Damaris as well. But that didn't hit her, it just 'plonked' to the ground beside her. 

 

Though he was still probably dead.

Stunned momentarily when the snowball hit her on the left shoulder, Asha looked up in surprise to see that it was Jack who had thrown the snowball. Wasn't Jack the one who had peed himself in the Great Hall in front of like everyone? So Jack apparently wasn't a total wimp after all. Maybe he could be useful after all. She quickly brushed off the snow from her jacket and came up to Jack, holding her hands up in a show of a proverbial white flag. 

 

"Jack, right?" Asha said with a bright smile on her face. "How about we team up? Trust me, two is going to be better than one against these blokes." She lined up with her back facing his back. "Back to back. It's the best way to go." 

 

She took another fistful of snow and launched it at Damaris.

She peered down at the snowball that had plonked on the ground next to her. "Figures, I guess," she scooped up some more snow. "You'd probably pee your pants again if you actually hit someone." 

 

She ducked, narrowly missing the snowball from Asha, before deciding to return the favor with the snow that she'd collected. "You might not want to stand too close to him," Damaris advised.

She joined the Hufflepuff and took out her wand unleashing defensive magical power to honor their noble house ,"Magical snowball fight, I'll guard you and you fire snowballs, let cry havoc let loose the dogs of war!"

 

She unleashed Incendio on every snowball she can covering Jack blasting them with strong use of the fire spell blasting them out of the air laying suppression fire on the enemy, its not cheating, its a magical snowball fight spells are not ruled out.

As soon as Kaleb heard the words, he ducked and hid behind a makeshift fort of snow. Piling up some snow in front of him, he watched the battle field, keeping an eye on who was getting hit. Kaleb expected it to be boys vs girls, as all competitions usually become with kids his age. Everyone just wanted to prove that their gender was better.

 

But Kaleb couldn't believe his eyes as he watched girls and boys team up together. Well, if that's the case, then he would just have to throw caution to the wind and attack everyone.

 

No one was a friend. Everyone was the enemy.

 

"TAKE THIS!" Kaleb shouted, throwing his snowball at his yearmates. Though, it kind of looked like it was heading straight for @Jack Rodgers.

 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

"What in the blooming heck?" Brigit was just trying to build a snow wizard. Was that too much to ask for? She didn't need balls flying at her nose. Especially cold and wet ones.

 

She liked the winter but this was too much. Spotting a bit of snow stained golden, Brigit packed it tightly and let it rip as far as her twiggy little arms would go.

 

Wait... Where did the fire come from?

Heulwen blasted the snowball Kalab threw and looking around kept up her defense as she kept her wand at the ready ,"Its not dueling so I'm not breaking any rules blasting snowballs!"

When one of the first years started using fire, Damaris narrowed her eyes at her. "Hey, that's cheating! You're not allowed to use that spell!" It wasn't fair as far as she was concerned.

A snowball fight was nothing like tag - Molly was actually excited to participate, grinning wildly as she hurled chunks of ice at everyone in the vicinity (particularly Damaris). It was all fun and games, until... 

 

"Heul-wen," Molly gasped, appalled at the bursts of lava. "Why the hell are you using magic in broad day light? Are you an idiot?" If you were going to break rules, at least don't do it so obviously.

Kaleb rolled his eyes at the Hufflepuff girl using fire. Though, watching his yearmates call her out was a pleasant thing to so (he almost even liked Molly!). "Yeah, using fire is stupid. The whole point is to throw snow!" Kaleb added, before rechucking his snowball at @Jack Rodgers.

 

Nothing against the boy, it was just unfair that he didn't get a chance to hit him with his first snowball.

A certain half-Canadian Ravenclaw was actually at his happiest in the wintertime. Drew was an expert snowball packer, and set to building up stores immediately. 

 

"Think fast!" he laughed, and pelted a classmate at random. Courteously he only aimed below the neck, even though some snowball fights in his family didn't follow such rules. 

 

He stayed far, far away from the most unwelcome use of fire magic, but said nothing about it as yet.

"Bunch of weirdos," Hamish muttered, shoving his hands into his coat pockets and keeping his distance.

Of course River was with the group the whole entire time, staying in the shadows making sure not to be seen.  Rolling up a snow as fast and as large as he could, the first year snuck to @Drew Knight 

 

Quickly jumping while looking as if River was about to make a slam dunk, the eagle released the snowball and let gravity do the dirty work.

Drew yelped as snow fell down the collar of his robes, and danced around for a few seconds trying to shake it out. He wheeled on his attacker. 

 

"Yikes, that's--! Who--? RIVER!" He burst out laughing and scooped up another snowball. "Oh now it's on, dude." And took off running after his friend.

Kaleb was focusing too much on the people shouting at Huelwen for using fire during the snowball fight that he had forgotten to throw some snowballs. This was a snowball fight after all. Scooping up some more snow, Kaleb shot it towards his housemate @Brigit Raske

Brigit was obviously on Molly's team, even if this wasn't something spoken aloud, and Molly knew the importance of helping her teammates - therefore, instincts quick as lightning, she nobly intercepted the path and knocked the snowball out of the way, before sending another ball of hard ice in the direction of @Kaleb Kennedy.

Brigit attempted to scream with Kaleb's snowball heading in her direction but as she closed her eyes (because ice in your eyeball was never not painful), Molly saved her.

 

She wrapped her arms around the girl, "My hero!!!!"

Asha tried to duck out of the way of Damaris' ball and managed to avoid some of it but still ended up getting a spray of snow on top of her head. "Okay, then," she said, gearing her arm up. "You guys asked for it." Electing to go for a different target this time, she launched a large ball @Kaleb Kennedy

 

"Hey, how about boys against girls?" she suggested abruptly. "Forget about that partnership Jack, if the girls want to team up, then it's game on."

Of course Casper Abernathy wasn't the type to join in on childish games. Tag had been easy to resist because who even liked running? Playing in the snow, however, had always been an activity he actually enjoyed. But, playing with this lot didn't seem like fun at all. One girl was conjuring fire (against the rules!), another he was certain was throwing ice shards, and Asha Richardson was there - he disliked all of those things.

 

"Stupid," he muttered. Like always, blond boy turned his nose up and carried on his way.

Winter was here, and Branchy didn't mind the cold. He loved to walk in he snow and his little footprints would show up. They were so small that he was sure that no one would even see them, since many of the humans here looked where they were going. Branchy was always running away from the humans, he had to make sure that he wouldn't get hurt. It didn't help that he was only so many inches tall. It didn't make his life easy at all.

 

Making his way back to the forest, he saw that there was so many students out and about, throwing snowballs. Branchy has to get out of there, he wasn't going to get hit by snow that would be heading about 100 MPH towards him.

 

Before he knew it there, was a snowball heading his way and he jumped on the first thing he could. He claws were sharp and didn't mean to hurt anyone. But he might just had. Then he saw more snowballs coming and jumped to the next human. He just wanted to get out of there.

 

----

I can remove this post, anyone can post claiming that Branchy jumped on them and then jumping from human to human

((I'll take that Branchy claim, thankya much))

Drew was still chasing River around looking for revenge when a stick fell on him, which turned out to be alive, and scrabbling with little claw things at the collar of his robes. Drew gave a yelp of fear and almost fell on his butt in the snow. 

"Uhh, guys, there is something on me! What is on me right now?!"

Hamish didn't want to participate but he did want piss off Casper 'I'm-too-good-for-everybody-else' Abernathy. So, like the mature person Hamish Lundy was, he packed a snowball hard and took aim before hurling it at the back of @Casper Abernathy's retreating head.
