Time to Stand United

”Where’s the popcorn?” Ryszard asked, as he leaned back in his seat and watched the Hall explode. This was clearly one service that Hogwarts needed to work on.

Julian had, in point of fact, not seen the chicken leg that had been thrown at @Behati GadotIf he had, he would've tried to intercept it too, because it was more or less clear to him that Behati was not going to change her mind from having stuff chucked at her. And if it was all the same to everyone, he'd rather people not give her an excuse to feel vindicated in her beliefs.

 

Of course, it was apparently not all the same to everyone and he'd fully expected the fight to carry on, despite his attempt to intervene. What he hadn't expected was @Headmistress McGonagall to step in. 

 

His stomach fell at the word 'detention.' He'd never, ever, ever gotten detention in his life before. He hadn't even lost his house points. 

 

"But - " he said, and tears suddenly threatened to spill. "I was just trying to stop them." He knew that magic outside the classroom was technically against the rules, though, so his objection did not hold much force. Shoulders slumped, he crossed his arms against his chest and went back to staring at his plate.

"Huh?" Jo gaped at the Headmistress for a few moments before shrugging and accepting her fate. It is what it is and Josephine had no regrets. 

 

Poor Julian on the other hand. 

 

Jo pushed her lips into a sympathetic smile, awkward and strained. "You'll be right, Pritchard," she said to her fretting Quidditch captain. "It's character building for you." Not as much as a lifechanging werewolf bite but nevertheless. 

 

Jo went back to her dinner, watching @Maggie Sinclair take things next level. At least detention would prove interesting with that loose canon present.

"But-but that's not right," Jack said. There was no trace of indignation or anger, only bewilderment. The Headmistress was the voice of authority: benevolent, all-powerful, all-knowing. Only in this case she was wrong. It was enough to trigger a crisis of faith.

 

"There's been a mistake," Jack called out. "Julian Pritchard isn't one of the bad kids. He isn't. He was just protecting people."

 

"It's not right," Jack repeated, more quietly. His faith that any one cared about justice was severely shaken.

Things were getting rather heated now. Random pieces of food were starting to get thrown around, very rude name calling, even some naughty gestures starting making an appearance. It was only going to be a matter of time before someone throws in the first punch/hex and the Great Hall erupts into a full-blown riot. Alex tried to drown it all out and was devising an exit strategy when a familiar red-haired girl joined the party. It was probably for the best that @Cosette Mercier wasn't here for the full story.

 

Alex smiled as she settled on a seat next to him, it was nice to see a friendly face among all this chaos. "People are fighting. The Headmistress made a speech to get everyone to unite and it somehow ended in... this."  He explained in a hushed whisper. "I wish someone can make it all go away. Bickering amongst each other isn't helping anyone." He glanced around the room, perhaps it would be possible to slip away unnoticed?

It was clear that whatever the Headmistress had intended, it wasn’t this. Edward watched, silently for several minutes, debating on what - if anything - he should do. It was certainly something he would never have witnessed back in Brazil. And that wasn’t because the kids there were any different. He had seen plenty of food fights in his time but the lack of control of the teaching staff? And the flagrant disregard of their authority? No, that he had never thought to see. They didn’t even stop when detentions were dished out! And because the issues were still being played out Edward did the only logical thing, he took out a notebook and started scribbling down notes with an occasional picture of the wild scenes before him, ducking away when any food came flying his way.
