Hufflepuff House Table

Aww. The majority of the ickles looked terrified, the rest were either stunned with awe or bouncing around excitedly but one thing they all had in common was the fact they were all CUTE! Hopefully they'd all end up in Hufflepuff and Kelsie could squish them all
After short speeches from the teachers and Weasley, the Sorting Hat was brought out and the sortings began. It wasn't long before Hufflepuff got its first student, and straight after, another. With each declaration of HUFFLEPUFF! Kelsie jumped from her seat and clapped happily along with her fellow Hufflepuffians. The first few newly
"Hello there little ickle! Well done and welcome to Hufflepuff, most awesome house of them all!" Kelsie tended to get overexcited really quickly but was able to save herself from sputtering out useless rabble.. this time. "I'm Kelsie, what’s you name ickle? Exciting stuff, this isn't it?" Oooh how she adored ickle cuties!

The hat sorted a short kid into Gryffindor, and Teal’s attention floated away again. She was starving. A train ride all the way from Scotland to a school that had been the target of Death Eater attacks for the past two years did that to people. She had turned into a leprechaun right in front of Jessi Lane! It was bound to stress anybody out, and when Teal was stressed, she got hungry. She was hungry all the time, actually, but that was beside the point.
A boy got sorted into Hufflepuff, and she was so busy listening to her stomach that she didn’t get to clap. Blushing, she turned to the eleven-year-old as he slipped onto the bench. “Hiya,” she chirped, trying to make up for her unenthusiastic response. “Welcome to Hufflepuff. Did you get the house you wanted?” Not that every first year didn’t want to become a badger, deep down inside.
Another blond girl had said hello to the first year as well. Growing more bored by the second, Teal looked over to her. “We’ve gotten a lot of new students this year, haven’t we?” she asked, eyeing a Prefect sitting nearby. It would be just her luck to get in trouble on the first day. “Isn’t it sad that none of them are really hoping to get Hufflepuff?” It was! They were the best people in the universe. Teal was willing to bet that there was at least one Slytherin eyeing their welcoming and bright table with envy. “It’s like they think we’re always happy and smiley or something.”
It was impossible to sit through lessons and smile, no matter what house you were in. Or when you got attacked by Death Eaters. That hadn’t been a particularly pleasant experience.

A blonde girl sitting nearby perked up and welcome the cute ickle too. Aww, now there was a happy Hoofle! "Yessiree we got lots! All so cute aren't they?" Kelsie could not stop. Maybe this was turning out to be an obsession of some sort. Nah. It was just cute ickles is all and they were all
The other Puff was talking a lot of sense, something Kelsie didn't much about, "Mmhmm. Quite sad. Imagine what Dusky Pidlerson would say if she were here!" Oh how Kelsie wished she knew. Then she could say it and the little ickle would cheer up and be glad. Sigh. Happy and smiley all the time? Now who did that sound like? Oooh! Pick me!! "Yep, that's it. They think we're just cute like bystanders or something. You wait and see when they see us in action in the duelling chamber. Then they'll know better!" The little Puff giggled and turned back to the ickle.
"You heard about duelling yet ickle? Or quidditch?" Kelsie had a plan. A really good plan.

Another few cheers bellowed throughout the hall. The ickles were almost all sorted now and the new school year would officially begin. The cute little, mannerly Puff greeted the other blonde Hoofle and smiled. Finally! He smiled! Aww. Now that was cute. Kelsie brushed a stray strand of hair out of her face as the ickle began to answer her questions.
Well, well then. Who was an informed little ickle! Excited to duel... but didn't know about quidditch. "Well sure! I'd love to show you some pointers. I'm not the best duellist around but I've won a few duels in my time here. The Duelling club also have signups if you're in need of an experienced duellist. I'll show you there later if you'd like." She grinned happily. If there was anything Kelsie Lennox could do, it was be happy, smiley and helpful.
"I'm not sure you'll make the House Quidditch team. They rarely let first years on the team as usually you guys don't have much experience. But you might! I made it onto the team when I was an ickle, I had enough experience beforehand though. Trust me, if you want to have fun, quidditch is the way to go!" Okay Kelsie. Leave the ickle to absorb some info! The older Puff clapped happily as the last person was sorted. Weasley gave another speech and before long, food was appearing on the table. Yum!

“Hi, my name is Nuala. I heard quidditch and duelling mentioned didn’t I? ‘Scuse me!” She squished herself in between the disinterested pair on the opposite side of the table from the ones talking. Teal she recognised (Huff wasn’t that big of a house) and the blond girl was older, but familiar sort of. “I’m Nuala. I’ve was on the quidditch team last year.” She grinned and reached for a bowel of ice cream, which she happily started to eat. Mmmmm. The Sorting Feast was always the best feast all year. Not that the food was ever bad, mind. But still, it was the best.
“I haven’t duelled much, but I really want to duel more this year. I tried once against this older Slytherin and he taught me the basics. I just never made it back to the place to try again, see?” She glanced around to see if she could spot the boy, but there were too many people in the Hall. "I'm up for any kind of duelling, if ya want."

"Hufflepuff?" Right. That was the house Kelsie mentioned with the pillow fights and adventures. It didn't sound all bad, though she had noticed a few disappointed kids walking past her as they sat down at the Hufflepuff table. Was there something about Hufflepuff that she didn't know and the disappointed students did? Nico shrugged. There was a ton about Hogwarts she didn't know and made a vow to herself to not let that get to her.
She slid off the stool to some light applause and looked over the large table of Hufflepuff students, none she recognized. She quickly made her way to the back, occasionally glancing at the other students at the table. She could have sworn she spotted Kelsie and Sam, but everyone looked the same at the speed she was going. She sat down and smiled weakly at the few students around her. Headmaster Weasley made a short speech and then the food suddenly appeared in front of her. To her amazement, a large vegetarian selection of foods were all at her reach as if they knew she was a vegetarian (which they did, of course).
Nico didn't hesitate grabbing a little something from each bowl or plate in front of her. She hadn't realized how hungry she was until that moment. It was true that some of the food wasn't as good as her parents cooking, but it was pretty dern good. Good enough for seconds. She smiled and bopped in her seat as she grabbed another plate full of food.

Blair walked up to her new House, and sat down nest to another student she didn't really know, and kept her eyes on the first years watching to see where her best friend went. She was slightly sad that Mel was Ravenclaw, but inside She knew that was the best place for her.
Blair started to hum to herself a lullaby, and filled her plate after everyone had been sorted. She let her dyed red hair cover her eyes slightly, and kept her big blue eyes on her plate. New people kinda scared her, but taking a deep breathe she looked at the other at her table, and hoped none hated snoring like her mother.
Blair was happy for another thing, and it was she wasn't Slytherin like her mother. She knew from her friend that Half-Bloods hardly get there, but still it scared her to think of being somewhere surrounded with others like her own Mother. Now dad was different she loved her dad, and knew even though Mother will sent a Howler soon. Dad would sneak out, and send her a card, and the chocolate he promised. Getting a big smile on her face she went back to eating the potatoes on her plate.

"Hello Kelsie, I'm Mariah," she said as she sat down, "It definitely is exciting. I would have never guessed that I would be sorted into Hufflepuff."
She clapped as another student was sorted into Hufflepuff and she heard Teal speak, It’s like they think we’re always happy and smiley or something.” She gave girl a lopsided grin, "Well I'm glad we don't have to smiley ALL the time. My cheeks would start to hurt after awhile."

Breakfast time! Dayna was up and out of her room before any of her roommates (even Lux, hah!), anxious to get upstairs and eat as fast as she could. Because after breakfast, the dueling chamber would be open! Yay, she could duel again! After all the dueling she’d done last year, it had been really hard to be away from it for a whole summer. Dayna was really, really excited to get back.
While she was eating at top speed, the new first year sitting next to her turned and introduced himself as an ickle. Dayna giggled at that, which made it a little hard to swallow her mouthful. Usually it was everyone else who called first years ickles, they didn’t use the word on themselves! “Hi, I’m Dayna,” she said, a bit muffled because there was still food in her mouth. “Fourth year.” Chewing, she managed to get the mouthful down and promptly loaded another one on her fork. Then the ickle Devin asked about classes. Ick.
“Oh, the same ones as always,” Dayna said airily, “they never change, which stinks, although in third year you get to add a few. Potions, Herbology, Charms, DADA, History, Transfiguration, and…and…oh, yeah, Astronomy. And first years take Flying, too!” Working her way through the next forkful, she abruptly realized that her plate was empty. Sweet! Dueling time! “Don’t worry about stuff,” she advised Devin as she got up from the table, “They’ll give us all our class schedules and stuff on Monday. Have a good year!” And with that, Dayna was scurrying away, taking on the new year at top speed.

But anyway, enough of the memories, back to the glorious breakfast. It was first day of classes, and so Kay intended to start off the year properly. She woke with enough time to shower, dress and get breakfast, and hopefully meet old friends and new ickles. The Great Hall would be a good place to start, and so with a few waves to various people on the way in, Kay eventually made it over to the table. She sat herself down, taking a bowel as she did so. Pour cereal, then talk. That was the plan.
After choosing a non-chocolate (i.e. sensible) cereal, Kay added some milk, then looked around for the sugar. There was some not too far away and as she reached for it, Kay smiled at the young person nearest her. "'Morning." She turned briefly as her fellow Fourth Year - Dayna, she thought her name was - left the table. Were they late?! Kay checked her watch, hoping she hadn't broke the new routine of being early -OK, on time - for lessons already. But no, they had at least twenty minutes left.

He actually ran towards the Hufflepuff table and sat down beside someone he didn't know. She looked like a 5th or 6th year but Devin didn't care at all. Dodger was perched on his now handing his paw over so he could take the letter. Dodger was a great owl. "Hey buddy." he said patting her on the head. "I have a mice for you, don't worry." he laughed handing his owl a dead mice he had found in the corridors of the dungeons.
I'm really happy you wrote to me. I wrote back as soon as possible, I hope Dodger isn't so late. Well everything is well here too. We started packing for the move since their's only a month left before we go to London. Anyway, I have good news for you too. Your going to have a baby cousin! It's so exiting being a father you know? We already got colors picked out for the bedroom. If it's a boy it'll be baby blue and if it's a girl it'll be light pink; Mary-Anna insisted on pink. Well being in Hufflepuff isn't so bad. Mary-Anna was one and my best friend Scott was one too. I wished I was in there myslef when I was in sixth year. I met Mary and then I was a bit mad that the two people I hung out with were Hufflepuffs. Enough talking, write me back I want to hear from you.
Devin smiled his Uncle was finally having a baby. Of course he was still only 32 years old but who cares? his parents had him at 21. He ate quickly so he wouldn't be late for potions class and then he took off his letter clutched in his hand. I should write to him now. He still has time. He sat down on the marble staircase making sure he wouldn't be in anyone's way and wrote.
Dear Uncle Robe & Aunt Mary-Anna
I'm so happy for you two. A baby? That's great. Do you know if it's a boy or a girl? Let me know ASAP please. Anyway, I'm feeling better about Hufflepuff, the common room is yellow but nice. I'm even signing up for Quidditch. Seeker or Batter witch ever I get. Anyway, this is kind of short but classes start in a few minutes and I still havenM't done my Astronamy homework. Well only the first paragraph there but you know.
He rushed to the owlery where Dodger had flew off and then seeing he was asleep he took a school owl. "Dodge, your probably tired of all that traveling." he said when he had open a eye. He tied the letter to the grey owl and it was off. "Great, now I'll read the first chapter for astronamy and try not to be late for potions." he said out loud.

He was in a good house, good house. With good people, yes. Bradley rubbed his tummy and listened to the Headmaster's words, and as soon as food appeared on the golden plates, he started to eat.
And honestly, he had never ever eaten like this before. He looked like a complete pig!
Bradley stood up from his seat. "I EAT FOOD!" And sat back down. You know, sometimes he can be very very shy, but other times, he could be a completely loud and reckless boy. But of course, isn't that how all boys are? "Hahaha, look at this," he nudged the girl next to him, "Look at this this this." He poked his potato with his fork, and smeared it across his plate. "Ahahaahahhaah."

"Hey, how are you?" he asked to a friend of his. He sat down beside some first years and then filled up his plate. "Two weeks, can you beleive it?" he asked the girl beside him. At that very second the post came flying in.
Dodger was one of these owls indeed. "Yes!" he screamed a bit to loudly since a few faces turned towards him. "I got a letter it's nothing." he grimmed trying to drag the attention away from him.
Sorry it's been a while but I had some trouble with my dad. He wanted me to live with him for a week or two so I can get used to magic. I regret telling him no though. During the vacation though...where is your uncle moving Dev? Anyway, i'll be living with whoever lives closest to your aunt and uncle. So yeah, you play Quidditch, that's really cool. I made some research at the library in Diagon Alley for Quidditch. It's a nice sport. Anyway, all my drama is over so we can write each other more often. Well it has only been a week too so anyway.
"So she had some family drama." Devin whispered as he re-read the letter. It must be hard being Halfblood and you didn't even know about it. He idn't want to leave the great hall just yet. It would mean h'd have to go to Herbology class. So he looked around for some friends of his that he could talk to.
