It was odd to already be sitting at the table right from the beginning of the night.  Alice smiled.  What a change from last year.  It had a good summer but she was happy to be back at school and able to use magic again and see her friends.  She spotted London and Wally over at their house table and waved to them. 

 

There wasn't much time for conversation with housemates as the first years were led in and sorting began.  Alice clapped and cheered for each new Hufflepuff as the Sorting Hat sent them to their new houses.  Alice felt like it was going to be a good year.

Fiona couldn't have felt more differently about the sorting this year. Last year she'd been up there waiting to try on the hat, lonely and scared and crushed when all her friends had gone to Ravenclaw except for her. This year she was decked out in her nicest set of Hufflepuff robes, enthusiastically clapping and cheering each time the Sorting Hat sent a new first-year to her house. While she was still closest to her boys in blue, she certainly recognized and liked lots of her housemates, and she also knew that Hufflepuff was the exact right place for her to be.

 

She caught sight of Alice nearby and gave her fellow second-year a familiar smile and a wave, indicating how far they'd come since they shared a dumbfounded moment of vulnerability together last year.

 

Then she noticed that Bones had escaped her pocket and was making his way up to the tabletop. Hastily she scooped some green beans off her plate and offered them to him. The ickles definitely would not like the sight of a rat on the tabletop, and Bones would not think twice about eating off of peoples' plates.

Norma had made a mistake.  A grave mistake.

 

See, she had picked up this miniature figurine as she walked past the Hufflepuff table before breakfast.  Eyes narrowed as she surveyed it, contemplating whether it might be best to confiscate the tiny little bag or toss it back to the students in the hopes it might find its rightful owner.  Unfortunately, for Norma, her decision to toss it in the general direction of the House Table hadn't quite paid off that morning.

 

She threw the tiny little object, and moments later a giant tent was erected atop all of the foods and the plates.  Wide eyed, with the knowledge very little surprised her these days, Norma sprung into action.

 

"First student to put the tent down will get house points!" she hollered.

 

There is also a prize up for grabs to be randomly given to people who interact!!!

There she was minding her own business eating her breakfast and the next thing she knew there was a tent on the table. Hogwarts was weird.

Her direct route to the sausages was not blocked by a rouge piece of camping equipment, and this was something that could not stand in her world. Nothing would block her second and thirds of processed meats, so the ickle shoved her lasts sausage link in her mouth before clambering up onto the table to remove the obstacle.

One minute she was on a mission the next minute she was laying facedown on the tent. It could have been a rouge hard-boiled egg that caused her current predicament, but in all reality it was probably her own foot that was the culprit. All she knew for sure was that something moist was creeping through the tent and onto her clothes.

"Professor Po, does it count if I just squished the tent?" she inquired followed by a silent prayer of please, please, please.

No. Fine.

Now came the issue of standing up, which turned out to be far more challenging than it should have. Every move she made the internal structure of the tent threatened to fling her off and onto the Slytherin table. Between the platters and pitchers of various juices beneath her and tent acting like an under filled waterbed, there was no hope for her to make it out of this gracefully and probably not in one piece either. "Professor Po, I'm just going lay here, and pretend the tent is gone. Okay?"

Izzy had been the picture of innocence, minding his own business as he stretched over the table to grab a pitcher of pumpkin juice when the world suddenly came crashing down on him.

 

The world felt suspiciously like a large canvas with pointy parts.

 

The pitcher he'd been reaching for had shattered on impact, soaking his sleeve in pumpkin juice as he struggled to get up. He would have done it too, had it not been for those meddling kids someone landing on his back and forcing his face into a platter of chicken wings.

 

"Hnnggggmmmmmooooowwww," Izzy moaned eloquently, his back cracking ominously. "Gerroff!"

Oh, so that's why it was so squishy.

"Stop moving then, so I can get off," she yelled at the mysterious voice emanating from below multiple layers of canvas and rods. Doing her best to shimmy herself off of the mysterious lump of person the ickle was doing fine reached the edge of Izzy's body and rolled down across the table. Knocking anything still standing in her path over.

"Ewwww," she groaned, "Why am I sticky?"

Fiona was only experiencing light nerves, considering that Kacie was about to get sorted. She knew that Kacie didn't really have her sights set on Hufflepuff, but then neither had Fio herself as a first-year. If her younger sister got into Hufflepuff, she could surely learn to love it too.

 

Without being able to hear anything from the hat, the suspense was horrible, but before long it sent Kacie....away to Gryffindor. Fiona gave a short whistle and clapped, watching Kacie go to sit with her new housemates. It was a little disappointing for Fiona, but she'd never say so to her own sister. Gryffindor was what Kacie had wanted, Fiona would try to be happy about that.

 

As for the chaotic blur of sorting night, well, Fiona's big sister instincts were buzzing but Kace could take care of herself.

 

The hat moved onto the next sort and Fiona heaved a sigh and turned back to her housemates. Instinctively she glanced around for Alice.

Morty had been watching the sorting with mild interest and some applause. He was supposed to watch for a cousin of his that was being sorted. He didn't really know the boy but his mum did. When the food it arrived it looked wonderful. His own mother was not much of a cook and they didn't own their own house elf so the food over the summer hadn't been anything compared to the school's.

Suddenly the Hufflepuff table was encased in a tent. There was some squishing and sticky spilling going on but Morty ignored all that . The tent was awesome. "We have the best house table of anyone. " he said to his fellow Hufflepuffs. He heard Professor Po offer house points to take the tent down, but why would they want to do that. Morty picked up his plate and spoon just so he wouldn't lose his food. "Nobody take the tent down . " he said . "The tent is great!"

Alice would have joined Fiona immediately had this been a normal sorting night (please note use of the term normal is very loose when used in relation to sorting night) but thanks to events of the summer, it wasn't quite normal for Alice.  But, thankfully, she had a chance to talk things out and found out all was well between her and London.

 

Once London went back to the Ravenclaw table, Alice made her way to where her best friend was sitting.  "Hi Fiona.  Sorry.  Didn't mean to be so long getting here.  How was your summer?" she asked, feeling much better than she had when she boarded the train that morning.

"Excuse me, could pass the potatoes? Oh, and the ham. And, sorry, and the brussel sprouts?"

It hadn't even been a week and he had already forgotten of his mothers cooking. Every meal was something different and wonderful; he made sure to stop into the kitchens and sing praises to the house elves. They were never quiet sure how to respond, poor things.

Talus Rex had never been a child to seek out second helpings. It was good to pace yourself, to not over eat. Those rules were floating away with every bite.

"Wait, do all the tables get different food?" His eyes lingered on Syltherin's pile of turkey "Do we have that here?" He was so over whlemed by the food that he forgot to ask which was he would need to head to make it to Herbology.
