Headmistress McGonagall

DETENTION: And on Sorting Night Too!

"Well, that's your choice, but we're stuck in here 'til it's clean." Truthfully, if it'd been anyone but the headmistress, Molly probably would've rioted. She'd been known to speak up to people like Knaggs. McGonagall, however, was practically legendary, with her role in taking down Voldemort/fighting aside Harry Potter as well, and Molly therefore respected her.

 

That being said, she thought age had probably made her a little loopy, because this was ridiculous.

 

"So you want more detentions?" Molly rose a brow at Ryszard. "Exactly. We're already in detention, and I sure as hell don't want to do it, but we don't have much of a choice, do we?"


She turned to Chaol, then, gaze brightening. "You have a point."

 

A genuine smile didn't blossom on Molly's lips, however, until she spotted Ollie. 

 

"TELL 'EM! LOVE YOU, BIG FAN."

“I’m sure we can find a way to make a certain Hufflepuff eat it.” How they would manage that, however, Ryszard had no clue, but he was sure they would be able to figure it out — they always did; they were resourceful enough. Of course, he didn’t want Jack to get into any more trouble, and definitely not because of him, but he’d long since accepted that he couldn’t really do much to stop her, either.

 

It was rather like his fight with Adrina, and he couldn’t help drawing parallels.

 

They were followed by Pine, and Ryszard raised an eyebrow at Jack. He didn’t think he wanted to be the kind of person that led younger students into a life of crime (be gay, do crime), but if the lambs came to the slaughter by themselves, he wasn’t going to be the one to stop them.

 

Ryszard was terrible at metaphors.

 

“These second years are so helpful,” he mumbled to Jack, looking at her meaningfully (yes, he was talking about gathering minions).

 

He turned around when he heard Molly talking to him, and huffed. “I thought you were all about fighting to help people. This isn’t helping anyone, not even us.”

 

Then, they were (maybe? possibly?) getting bailed out.

Jack struggled to keep the mischievous grin at bay as Ryszard agreed that they could figure out something out but reminded herself that there were two second years awfully willing to be minions to help her. As impressive as it was that two (2) Gryffindors were game to assist with very little to no questions, only one of them had something useful to collect the ectoplasm. "The bottle will do, thanks Pine... and thanks uuuuh kid from the Hangpuff game for the suggestion." Jack emptied out the remaining potion onto a nearby plant and proceeded to discreetly collect as much ectoplasm as possible onto it and gave it to Ryszard once it was full. "Hide it where no one but us can find it," she whispered, returning towards her now cold chicken and picking at it. 

Perks of lycanthropy though? Meat was meat and Jack wasn't picky. 

"Didn't know this was a free-admission show," Jack raised an eyebrow at the intruding prefect, but frankly she didn't care for this Ravenclaw she just wanted to be a pain.

Not thinking that his bottle would work but the girl, Jack took it. Which must have meant that it would be useful for something. At least he hoped that it would be, that was going to be the most work that he did today. He shouldn’t be here, he did nothing wrong but speak the truth. And if speaking the truth is what got him detention then be it. This is what happened last year also.

 

People trying to speak out and got detention, but this time Hatty was in detention herself. Just he didn’t think that he needed to be here. But whatever. “Anything else needed?” Pine wondered, hoping that he would be done and be able to leave this place and get some rest. 

 

The headmistress was not someone he was a fan of anymore.

Headmistress McGonagall

“I do mind, Miss Celeste. You are not to come up here without an appointment. Moreover, I will not accept any student treating another poorly. That goes for students attacking Miss Hambeldon on the basis of her goblin heritage or not.” 

 

Minerva did not hesitate to shepherd @Ollie Celeste right out the door. “Five points from Ravenclaw for interrupting a detention. Good night, Miss Celeste.”

Ollie Celeste

Ollie felt all life leave her body – not because of the content of Professor McGonagall’s comments but because she had lost house points. What would Ripley say he had literally JUST given her an award and said she was an EXAMPLE for all Ravenclaws!? “Molly avengeeee meeeeee!” She called as she was ushered out. And because she had not lost all manners (just some respect for the headmistress due to perceived injustices 💔) she managed to add her own parting words: “Night night.”

Ollie out, thank you and sorryyyy

The majority of Chaol's impression of @Ollie Celeste was from their interactions on the Quidditch Pitch. Which meant that he knew she was absolutely lethal with a beater's bat. But be could feel his opinion of her soar even more as she interrupted the detention. And even as she was ushered out just as quickly, with her only punishment being a loss of house points (which, given Ravenclaw, would not last for very long).

 

Bloody hell. Not all bravery came from Gryffindor it seemed. 

 

In the silence that followed. Chaol found that he was more tired than he thought, and only wished this whole thing could go bloody faster so that he could get to bed. Fiend was probably already hoarding most of it, and he needed to establish some rules for this upcoming year with the cat.

They were either going to get themselves or the Gryffindors killed. Either way, someone was about to die. The thought didn’t stop Ryszard from exchanging a wide grin with Jack, however. It was probably a good thing the two of them weren’t in the same house, because mentoring would have been an absolute nightmare if they did their best to steer first years down the wrong path, year after year.

 

Perhaps they ought to open up a daycare center for the new arrivals.

 

Ryszard grabbed it when Jack handed him the bottle full of ectoplasm, and stashed it somewhere in his clothes (he was like a mix between Mary Poppins and a kangaroo, at this point). Their world domination plans were all set, and now they just had to figure out the best use for their new secret weapon.

 

That, of course, meant actually leaving this detention before the year was over. Ryszard turned towards the Headmistress, just as she (sady, unfortunately) kicked out their would-be saviour, @Ollie Celeste. “Can we go now?”

"Not for now, thank you anyway, you're amazing for helping us out with this" Jack addressed @Pine Tree, a smile on her face as she did, and made note to go to him if she ever needed any assistance for nefarious purposes. Really, it paid to have minions in other houses and she was not above capitalizing on the opportunity to use the baby werewolves. After the awful year the poor second year had had the year before, she knew he was vulnerable and unfortunately if he stuck around Jack was going to exploit the vulnerabilities. Not that he'd ever know, people were so quick to ignore any ulterior motives at the first talk of justice. 

"Well I'm done for today, in case it wasn't obvious," Jack shrugged, and resumed eating the chicken. "I'd try to make a run for an escape but some people haven't finished their job like we have and I don't feel like working double." It really was a good thing Ryszard and her weren't in the same house or they would have destroyed the House and potentially the school already. Not that they weren't going to but you know it would have made things easier.

"It's not," Molly agreed with Ryszard. "And I am, of course I am, but I'm not an idiot, either." In Molly's opinion, the reason this was her first detention was she knew when to speak out and act up and when to be cautious, smart. This.. was a fluke. Extremely unfair. 

 

"I WILL! OLLIE, YOU'RE A HERO!" Molly cried as her good friend was dragged out by security. Or McGonagall. Whatever. It was noble sacrifice if there ever was one, although she definitely foresaw the consequences. 

 

Avenging Ollie, Molly knew, would mean not actually cleaning, but instead collecting ghost guts like some of the others. Still, she supposed that was a form of cleaning, and McG hadn't put a stop to it yet, so Molly changed tactics in honor of @Ollie Celeste.

His teeth clenched when Molly finally replied to him. Part of him was disappointed in the girl for choosing to stick to a tactic where she did nothing but keep her head down. If they were to change anything, surely that wasn’t the way — not that Ryszard was interested in changing anything or working for the greater good. He just wanted all the people like Hatty and Behati to leave his friends alone.

 

If Molly’s attitude was anything to go by, however, that year’s prefect appointments suddenly made sense.

 

“Some people actually think we should be doing this,” he said darkly to Jack and rolled his eyes. “Maybe we can throw a dungbomb and leave that way.” (Where was @Maggie Sinclair when you needed her?) Of course, that would have meant even more detention, and Ryszard wasn’t sure if either of them could afford that; they wouldn’t have anywhere to go if they were expelled from Hogwarts.

((ooc: sorry for the lateness of this final reply))

 

Things were winding down now, which meant that Chaol would soon be allowed to leave and get back to the festivities of sorting night. It was dumb that he couldn't enjoy the start of his second year properly without having to deal with a detention. All for speaking out in defense of his friend. And despite the headmistress trying to toe the middle line, it was clear there was a disparity in how others were being treated at this school. 

 

Taking what was left of his torn up robes, Chaol dropped them in the nearby fireplace. Good riddance, he thought. And good riddance to this stupid detention. More than ready to leave, he jerked his head in acknowledgement to the headmistress before he headed for the door.

 

There better still be snacks in Gryffindor Tower when he got there.
