Advanced Illumination and Variegated Detonation: A Sophisticate's Firewinks™️ Manual

Recommended Posts

Silas Harding-Clarke

Another small figure wandered down to their box of explosives (nice, getting a good start this year in endangering the children) and when she had the good sense to ask for a pair of gloves, Silas almost audibly sighed with relief. Must be a new Ravenclaw, he thought, though it was impossible to see in the dark. He noticed as she pulled something out of her pocket and peered toward the lake.

 

He shifted a little bit automatically, though probably nobody could see the flag in his own pocket, with just one tail of it peeking out. Besides, who was going to be able to discern the color at this hour?

 

"Yes, in the name of all things holy please take some gloves," Silas said gratefully to the newcomer, rifling through their admittedly small stash for a small pair and handing them over.

Eloise Beauchamp

"Fantastic," Eloise intoned, giving Silas a sweet smile as she took the firewink he offered her. She strolled away from Silas to light off her firewink. There was approximately ten seconds of brilliant crystal reflections that illuminated the air around her and her firewink before she realized something... she could not breathe. The blonde tried to pull air into her lungs, but they didn't seem to be functioning properly... and did she feel something on her neck? Eloise reached up and felt her neck where gills, yes, GILLS, had sprouted.

 

Seriously?

 

The blonde looked around in a panic before realizing there was only one thing to do. She ran towards the lake and submerged herself until she could feel the gills begin to wear off and her respiratory system return to normal. Eloise emerged sopping wet from the lake and traipsed over to Silas, practically steaming. "You have something against me, Silas?" Eloise hissed at him before leaning closer to the boy and picking out a firewink from his stash herself.

 

Hopefully it would be one that wouldn't give her gills.

The sky in front of him lit up with a brilliant display of orange! I was pretty cool, but he noticed something strange. He smelled like....like...bathroom cleaner? Specifically the kind their house keeper used on the toilets and such in their house. He felt rather clean as well. This was actually kind of fun, he could sort of see why Sofie did dangerous things. 

 

"Can I have another one?" He asked.

Columbia Newton

Columbia smiled, quickly pulling on the offered gloves. She did quite like her fingers, but she wondered if the heat from her hands would still come through enough to set it off? She kind of wanted to try the new spell, though. Fire sounded pretty cool. Except before she could even draw her wand out, the firewink started to smoke, and before she knew it, it was blowing up in her freshly gloved hand.

 

Feathers went everywhere. It was like a bad sleepover in a movie, where they destroy every pillow in an epic pillow fight. Columbia actually had to spit a feather out of her mouth, and she didn't realize that there were a few stuck in her hair.

 

"Woah," she turned excitedly back to Silas, "May I have another?" And held out her gloved hand. She was ready this time, it was time to play with fire!

Silas heard some soft yet angry squishing sounds and turned to find a dripping swamp monster with Eloise's voice leaning across him to select a new, better firewink.

 

"Don't blame me," he protested. Next year they were definitely signing waivers.

 

@Eloise Beauchamp Lmfao I'm so sorry but Eloise took another AQUAMARINE FirewinkTM don't hit me
 
"Can I have another one?" 

 

"Help yourself," Silas said with a gesture toward the open box and a dark glare in Elo's direction that was lost in the night and probably not very effective anyway since he still had flower petals decorating his hair. He wasn't getting blamed for anyone's firewink woes. "Lumos," he said, holding the light above him and surveying the box to see how many they had left. Plenty. He almost wanted to accidentally spill them all.

 

@Schuyler Clement takes a CORNFLOWER FirewinkTM
 

With his wand still lit, Silas noticed one of the first years returning for more punishment firewinks. He reached over and gently brushed a couple of feathers out of her hair. "You may," he said, and since she held out her hand, he reluctantly picked one for her.

 

@Columbia Newton gets one of the IRON FirewinksTM Good thing she wore gloves!

Flowers. FLOWERS.

 

"What kind of stupid death bombs are these? Can't you even get these right?" Abi whined at Silas, picking up another firewink and chucking it at him.

Columbia felt her cheeks flame as Silas brushed some feathers out of her hair for her. Whoops, she hadn't even realized they'd settled there. Oh, well. At least it had been feathers and not flames or something awful. She didn't fancy going bald.

 

Taking the next firewink, she realized this one was a slightly different color. She wondered if it was going throw feathers at her, too, or maybe snow. Whites and greys were not very threatening colors, so she might have underestimated it.

 

"Incendio," she pronounced carefully, pointing her wand at the firewink.

 

Suddenly, even through the gloves, her hand got very cold. She almost immediately tried to drop the sparking thing, but it was stuck. She held her hand away from her, teeth chattering, trying to keep the sparks from hitting her as much as possible.

 

She glanced over at Abi, who was complaining about flowers not being a good death bomb.

 

"I think I may have gotten one of the death bombs," she piped up, closing her eyes before a spark could hit her in the cornea.

 

After this one fizzled out, she was pretty sure she was done with firewinks for the time being.

Well, he’d gotten a crystal firewink. His hand nearly burned off from the coldness of it when it went off but it looked awesome so he didn’t care. He absentmindedly said “ouch” as he watched the firewink take off. It looked spectacular. He then had an idea. In fact, many ideas. He could use these things for experiments. He looked around and inched closer to the boxes of them. He saw @Ollie Celeste out of the corner of his eye. He knew she liked crazy things… would she be willing to help him steal the firewinks?

This time Silas was ready, and he wiggled out of the way of Abi's next firewink, which rolled into the brush behind him before bursting into flame and goop. @Abi Slater threw a FLINT FirewinkTM

 

"Impedimenta!" he pointed his wand in her direction. "We don't throw things at people."

 

nobody else took a firewink QQ

Ha, Abi was one step ahead of Silas - as ALWAYS. The boy was just too slow, both mentally and physically, to keep with her.

 

She dove to the ground, hearing and feeling a jet of something wash past her. Without missing a beat, she began army-crawling away into the darkness; she'd nearly struck him with lava that time, and Abi cackled as she retreated, scooping up firewinks as she left. Next time... next time, she'd get him when he least expected it.
