ANARCHY

OOC: Set a couple days after this; pls don’t invade, Professor Foster ;_;

 

Professor Foster might’ve thought that her word was law, but she was surely mistaken. Behati had never gone against an authority figure before, especially not someone who she’d previously held in such high regard, but there was a first time for everything, and she couldn’t sit around and allow herself and others to be bullied into accepting vicious animals in their midst. Bee came back to Hogwarts with a mission, and by God she’d accomplish it come hell or high water.

 

It’d been a couple days since the incident in the Great Hall, but the Hufflepuff was still fuming. Her anti-werewolf stance hadn’t budged one bit: she’d simply decided to find ways to be underhanded about it. Professor Foster, or anyone who was pro-werewolf, for that matter, couldn’t argue that Behati and the rest of the students with common sense were targeting or harassing the werewolf population—which Bee had covertly named ‘Operation: Where the Wild Things Are’—if they didn’t actually pointedly mention any words that implied assault. Bee was never the sort for violence, regardless. That was why she wanted the werewolves gone: they were poison and the sickness and everything wrong with Hogwarts. Alright, maybe not everything that was wrong with Hogwarts, but they definitely added a hell of a lot more problems to Hogwarts.

 

She’d organized an underground anti-werewolf club for that exact reason. Her goal was to have she and her fellow club members observe and document instances of violence at the hands of werewolves, and their supporters, and bring it to light so that the greater wizarding community, and the Ministry itself, had no choice but to do something about the risk werewolves posed to all their safety. Bee had disguised the club as a book club, picking the most boring books she could think of so she could drive away the less literary students from joining the club and exposing their plans.

 

That day, as it thundered and poured outside, Bee stood by the door of one of the unused classrooms. She’d sent out a secret password to all the students she knew were anti-werewolf and was awaiting their arrival.

 

Behati started a secret underground anti-werewolf club that everyone who is anti-werewolf is free to join. She’s set up a password that you have to provide before you’re allowed entrance into the unused classroom that the meeting takes place in. It’s always a new classroom every time. The club is disguised as a book club. Please only join if your character is anti-werewolf.

 

The password is Doggo by the way.

Ryan Dorland-Nece

For once, Ryan was not the only student who had an unpopular opinion.

 

He had received an invitation, from Behati, the girl who had put up similar posters to his, about a secret anti-werewolf club. Naturally, he had told @Hatty Hambeldon about it too. They always had long conversations about politics, and this subject was no different—if anything, it was even more relevant because she’d been the one to drive off the werewolf who attacked him.

 

Ryan looked to the left and then looked to the right. “I brought the book for this week,” he said, holding up his satchel. “Though I thought Doggo was a bit of an odd title.”

 

See what he did there? He was so clever. 

 

He was ready to show everyone in the Great Hall how wrong they were that they were safe in a school full of werewolves.

Arwa Hashmi-Andrada

Skirting around it, Arwa had somehow managed to completely disappear in the commotion in the Great Hall. She had been there, but hidden away from the chaos. She hoped Julian hadn’t seen it happening — she hadn’t seen him in the crowd, but the thought of her best friend watching as half the school population called the new werewolves ‘monsters’ was perhaps too much for her to bear. The confusion in Arwa’s brain had turned to white static, and it didn’t help that no matter who she turned to, she got the same confusing comments in reply.

 

The one person she had seen at the protest was Behati. The two had been close once, and Arwa wondered what had lead to them falling apart. It certainly hadn’t been the crush she’d had on the Hufflepuff, because those words had never passed her lips.

 

It was for that reason that the invitation to join Behati’s anti-werewolf had been such a surprise. Arwa hadn’t uttered a single word about the conflict playing around in her mind, but she figured everyone had heard her voice on air. She had known her friends and classmates would recognise her voice, and now the radio silence from both Julian and Hazel didn’t seem like such a surprise. The thought made her chest ache, and Arwa would have let out a sob, but she knew this was all her fault.

 

Arriving at the classroom door that had been specified in the invitation, Arwa pulled at a string hanging from her robes, fidgeting. The only two people at present were Behati and the Gryffindor boy from the protest. She realised she ought to know his name, but Arwa couldn’t place it, and she felt lost. This was the first time she had forgotten someone’s name so easily. It made her think that maybe her parents had been right about her staying at home until the trauma had passed.

 

”Hey,” she said, voice cracking. Arwa was standing close to and looking at the Hufflepuff, as if excepting her to start talking out there in the open. “I don’t want them to be expelled,” she said, softly, only loud enough for Behati to hear.

The low turnout was disappointing for her, but Bee knew that taking on such a bold opinion at Hogwarts, especially during a time when tensions were so high, was a very bold risk for most people at school to do. So, she couldn’t fault those who felt the same way she did but didn’t have the confidence to openly express them. She didn’t want to put a target on their backs as well. However, she was pleasantly surprised to see @Arwa Hashmi-Andrada‘s face at the meeting. She recognized the Gryffindor girl’s voice from Trudy’s show: she’d called in expressing her newfound fears of the werewolves at school, but had quickly hung up before Behati could even respond.

 

It was nice to know that there were those in her year who hadn’t completely drank the kool-aid.

 

“Yeah, doggo really was an odd choice for a title,” she went along with @Ryan Buratsche with a wink. That was a great plan on his part. She stood in the middle of the room now, staring curiously at Arwa. “Well, what do you want to happen to them?” She asked. Bee couldn’t see how they could all coexist at school. There were too many what ifs for expulsion to not be the best solution.

 

“Our first order of business is to present the factors that others aren’t thinking about in this whole equation. I admit that I was a bit rash in my approach in the Great Hall, but we have questions that deserve answers, and factors that nobody is actually considering. Like who’s actually monitoring the eleven students who are now infected with lycanthropy? Who’s making sure that they’re all getting their proper doses at the proper times? And how many cases of werewolf attacks have happened this past decade just in Great Britain alone, not to mention the whole wide wizarding world?”

 

“And who is funding all of this wolfsbane? The Ministry can’t afford to issue wolfsbane for all the werewolves in Great Britain, but somehow Hogwarts has the funds and the manpower to give all eleven infected students a week’s worth of wolfsbane every month? Something doesn’t sound right.”
