    Antares and Marius Black
    Hogwarts Express

    Marius raised an eyebrow as he watched the boy leave their compartment. "Friendly fellow, isn't he?"

    Antares shrugged and turned his attention back to Amarantha. "Why was that kid so worried about which house his brother got into?" he wondered. "Is it really that important?"

    Marius chipped in to explain their position. "We just moved here from America. At the school we went to last year, the students weren't split into different houses. Some sort of rule against it because it promoted too much competition, or something stupid like that."

    "Yeah, plus there weren't a lot of us there anyway, so there wasn't much point in splitting us up," Antares added. "We've heard a little bit about the houses, but not much. What's so great about Gryffindor?"

    OOC: Finally got my post up.

    Adam Guild
    Hogwarts Express

    From the floor Adam looked up at the laughing girls, oh crap!?
    He jumped to his feet before he could start blushing. ?Ladies, I?m so sorry for the intrusion,? he began, pulling his wand out. ?But since your entertainment for this years journey to Hogwarts has crashed your party you may as well enjoy it.?
    He made a bunch of roses shoot out of his wand, catching them before they could hit the ground. ?And what will this years entertainment consist of Adam Guild???
    Hey she knows my name?
    ?Patience dear lady, patience.? He pulled two roses from the bunch then handed the remainder to Esmeralda. He clasped one rose between his teeth, then threw the second into the air. As soon as he caught it he made to throw it again, but instead made it vanish.
    Esmeralda clapped but her friends weren?t so impressed. ?You call that entertainment? Any fourth year and conjure and vanish flowers. It?s not hard.?
    Esmeralda gave Marie a little glare but Adam just grinned. "And there my dear, you have found the crux of the matter, you know that I have my wand, and can do? Magic.?
    He held his wand out in front of him, showing it to the three girls, before turning to Esmeralda. ?Might I impose upon you again? First flowers to hold and now a wand.?
    As she took the wand Adam leaped backwards, holding only the rose.
    ?Now I have no wand, no way of doing what you refer to as magic. But I will show you Magic as you have never seen it.? He help the rose in his right hand, then threw it into the air just like last time, caught it and made to throw it again. Again it vanished.
    The stunned silence from the 3 girls stretched Adams grin even further. He turned his body slightly and reached into his pocket with his left hand, withdrawing a deck of Muggle playing cards. The cards easily slipped out of their box and into his hands. He shuffled them before fanning them out and showing them to Marie, ?as you can see this is a normal deck of playing cards. There are no trick cards.? He flipped them around so she could see the back, ?none of them are double sided. And there are no spells embedded in them.? Adam could see the disbelief flit across Marie?s face, ?you are welcome to test them by any spell you can think of.?
    He thought she would take him up on the offer, but Esmeralda cut in before Marie could speak, ?no it?s ok. Go ahead, we believe you.?
    Smiling at her Adam turned to her and showed her the cards, ?take one but don?t show me. I?ll turn away so you can show the others if you like? NO! Not that one.? She jumped and pulled her hand away from the card she?d reached for, ?Just kidding, pick whichever one you like.?
    As soon as she pulled out her chosen card Adam snatched away the rest of the deck and began riffling the deck, ?tell me when to stop.? About halfway down she asked him to stop he pulled the top half off and told her to replace her card. He did a quick shuffle then pulled off the top card. ?This is your card.?
    For a moment Adam thought Esmeralda looked disappointed but it only lasted a second. ?Actually no, that?s not it Adam.?
    ?It?s not? Are you sure?? She nodded and he dropped the card back on top looking down hearted. He started edging towards the door then darted back, ?look, can you just check one more time?? He pulled the top card off and passed it back to her, ?are you sure that?s not your card??
    She gasped slightly then handed the card to Violet and Marie, ?how do you do that??
    Adam gave his most mysterious grin, ?Magic.?
    He took his wand back and called the card back to himself then turned to leave, ?you can keep the flowers, a souvenir of your first true magic experience.?

    Back in his own compartment he started changing into his school robes, whistling softly to himself.

    ic: Maya Yubari
    Hogwarts Express

    Maya was sitting opposite her best friend Felicity Jordan, staring out of the window while passing the chocolate frog from hand to hand when Felicity spoke causing Maya to jump, and the frog with her.

    ?So, how was your summer?? Felicity asked. ?Did you do anything fun??


    "Oh, it was alright..." Maya said slowly, while fishing her frog up from the ground and brushing the odd bits of fluff off it. "I'm not sure I'm going to eat this now." She added, placing it on the chair next to her.

    "Although, I know officially love my mother! She organised for us to holiday with the Haalus in their French Chateaus because she works with Lord Haalu. At first I was annoyed, going on holiday with my mother is bad enough without adding some aging old judges to the mix." Maya said with a frown, but then the frown turned to a grin and she started to play with her hair. "However it wasn't just the Haalu elders there. Marius Haalu was there... he's such a gentleman."

    Just as Maya said this a group of 7th years began to walk past, standing out from the crowd was the tall, strong, handsome Marius Haalu, dressed in the red and gold of Gryfindor. He looked through the glass of their compartment and saw Maya before gesturing for his group to carry on. After knocking gently on the door he opened it to be greeted by Maya.

    "I missed you on the platform." He said slowly, every word thought through carefully.

    "We arrived late, I only just caught the train." Maya said, blushing slightly.

    "Well I'm glad I've found you now, I forgot to give you something when you left last week." He replied while pulling a small bunch of flowers from her robes. "A souvenir of France, the flowers will never wilt. Now I must go, I trust I will see you at the feast tonight?"

    "I wouldn't miss it." Maya said taking in the flowers sweet, yet sharp smell.

    "Au revior Maya." He said with a slight bow that made Maya laugh. "Or is it sayonara in Japan?"

    "Close Marius, close. I'll see you later." She replied, still laughing slightly. As he left down the corridor Maya shut the door and as soon as the latch clicked she fell back onto the seat and sighed. "Please tell me I didn't just make a complete fool of myself?"

    Kendrix McCully
    Hogwarts Express


    ?The only thing I can figure is that someone enchanted their candy. That one can?t talk sensibly, and the other one turns colours.?

    Kendrix frowned a little as she looked at the three boys, who all looked particularly worse for wear, One changing colours, one talking jibberish and the last hiccupping golden bubbles. Sometimes practical jokes really did go too far. She gave Marlin a concerned look as gold bubbles from the hiccupping boy floated and popped around them both

    ?Alpha elephants eating apples.?

    The first boy said. Kendrix couldn't work out what the jumbled words were actually meant to be. Marlin furrowed his brow

    ?What should we do? Wait until we get to the castle? Or should we attempt to cure them??

    Kendrix thought for a few seconds. Usually with hiccups, muggle methods included holding ones breath for 30 seconds, or attempting to drink a glass of water upside down. But she wasn?t sure if it would work with wizards, and the colour change and jibber jabber enchantment, she wasn't sure either. Looking about, she noticed a half eaten bar of chocolate on the cabin chair. Picking it up, she took out her wand and pointed it at the candy

    ?Specialis Revelio?

    She said, hoping the charm would identify the enchantments on the sweets. She looked at Marlin

    ?I don?t really know. The deletrius charm can erase magical after effects of incarnations and enchantments, but I don?t want to risk it. I think the best thing to do is to stay with them, see if it wears off, and get help at the castle if need be?

    Hogwarts Express

    In the commotion for the candy Mac had thought he noticed a certian amount of sadness in Aurora's demenor but thought perhaps it was just his imagination and filed it to the junk heap at the back of his mind.

    He returned his attention to Elysium and at that moment she held a Fizzing Whizbee above his head obviously toying with him and hoping for a trick. He decided to oblige her and proceeded to remove his shoe and enchanted it to fly around the room, laces flapping like some ungaingly bird.

    Praying a prefect wouldn't happen by he turned and gave Elysium the old one eyebrow raised head tilt as if to inquire "Good enough for you?"

    Amarantha paused for a moment, lowering her book and gathering her thoughts before answering. "Well, I think that James just wants his brother in Gryffindor because that's the house he's in, and their family's almost always been in Gryffindor as well. But no, it's not really important anymore. I suppose the Sorting has become so ingrained in Hogwarts tradition, it's impossible to get rid of--that and Hogwarts probably has a lot more students than your old school, so splitting them up is a bit of a necessity. As for separation promoting competition...well, there's nothing wrong with a little friendly competition now and again. There's the Inter-House Quidditch Cup, and the House Cup is awarded at the end of the year, so the houses are always competing with each other to a small degree."

    She laughed again and shook her head a bit as she watched Mac's shoe fly around the compartment like some strange, poorly-formed species of bird. Her kitten, Cricket, scrambled onto Aurora's shoulder and sat there, watching the shoe circling the room and attempting to paw at it when it came too close. Mac gave Elysium a look as she continued to hold a Fizzing Whizbee over his head, waiting for his reward.

    Jonathan looked up as the other poked her head in. His first impression was that she looked very strange. He pushed the thought aside, and spoke. "Sure, come on in. Doesn't appear to be much longer a ride, but we could always use some more company." The more he thought about it, the happier he was at having others in the car with him. He started to realize just how lonely the whole ride had been. He smiled and spoke to the . "So, what's your name. Oh, and what year is this for you?"

    "Sure, come on in. Doesn't appear to be much longer a ride, but we could always use some more company."
    She opened the door a little wider, and pulled her trunk in after her. She was decked out in tight black clothes, head to foot. She was donned in chains on her pants, and wore three silver necklaces, two with odd symbols, and one with handcuffs on it. A tabby cat with white feet followed her in. She shoved her trunk against the wall and sat down.
    "So, what's your name. Oh, and what year is this for you?"
    "Demitra Sarantakos the third." She smiled and added, "you can call me Ville Angel if you prefer. I like it better, more similar to my father's name. But proper mother" She rolled her eyes and called her cat over to her, and it pounced onto the seat and began to pur. "This is my second year, should've been my third-but no matter. Who are you and what is your year by the way?"

    Jonathan thought over her name. "Hm. Strange name. I kinda like Demitra though. Unusual." she spoke again. "Who are you and what is your year by the way?" Jonathan seemed embarrassed by his poor manners. "Oh, right. Sorry 'bout that. Name's Jonathan Grisworth. This is my second year, and I'm in Gryffindor if you are wondering." His attention was drawn to the cat. He really didn't like cats, so he was a little weary around them. They seemed to thin k he was a living scratching post. He found his owl to be a much better pet than any cat could be. He didn't realize he had forgotten that there were other people in the car, and was agitated with himself. He did that too often. He smiled at the . "So, what did you think about your first year?"

    "Yeah, it's a weird name i know, but it's been passed down three generations. First my grandmother on my father's side, then my mother who was strangly named Demitra as well, and then my father decided to name me after his mother. So, I am the third Demitra." She laughed and then answered his second question.
    "I was really lonely last year. It wasn't fun. I begged my mother to let me go back to Las Vegas with my father, but she wouldn't allow it." She shut her mouth not wanting to reveal that she was one, a werewolf, and two, not wanting to go on a rant and annoy this guy.

    Jonathan shrugged slightly as she asked. "Uneventful. Great, but uneventful. I just didn't really get involved with much except for my classes. Didn't make many friends either. But, eh, how does that matter? It's quality, not quantity, right?" He flashed her a smile, then fell quiet. He just recalled something that he had learned ove rthe summer. Normally he wrote down things that he learned about magic, but for whatever reason he had neglected to write it. He couldn't reason out why he had remembered it. ti was something about the across from him, he knew that. He pulled out his journal and wrote in it.

    Antares and Marius Black

    "Oh yeah, Quidditch!" Antares exclaimed, suddenly very interested. "That's what you guys play over here instead of Quodpot, isn't it? It sounds kinda boring--where's the fun in playing a game that only ends when someone finds that Snitch thing? Quodpot's a lot more fun; it moves real fast and you never know when the quod's gonna explode!"

    Marius rolled his eyes as he listened to his brother go on about his favorite sport. He was no bookworm, but Marius never really got into Quodpot like his twin had. To him, it seemed like a waste of time.

    "I don't have a problem with competition," Marius said once his brother had stopped talking. "I think it encourages us to improve our magical abilities." He smiled. Everything he'd learned about Hogwarts so far made it sound like the perfect place for him.

    James walks back into the carrige where the Black twins and Amarantha were sitting. "I couldn't find Albus.......oh well." James listens in on what the 3 were discussing while he was done.

Pretty cool I guess, either of you trying out for the house team this year?" James asks changeing the subject.

    Location: Hogwarts express.


    The young William Grindelwald sat in a lone compartment on the Hogwarts express. The young wizard could hear the other students, laughing, playing, socialising. No doubt they were all excited about the sorting ceremony and what houses they would be placed. William was pretty sure which house he would be placed in, Slytherin. For when people thought of his family name they generally thought dark wizard. His grandfather had been a dark wizard, a very powerful one at that. Word was that only "He Who Must Not Be Named" was more dangerous.

    William wore muggle clothing, he had not yet changed in to his Hogwarts robes. He looked out of the window at the beautiful country side. William realised that he needed to start making friends. Slowly but surely he got up, moving towards the sliding door of the compartment. Opening it, William moved down the hallway of the Hogwarts Express looking for someone to talk to.

    As the trains cabin lights flickered on Alexander knew it wouldn't be much longer till they had arrived at there distantion. Even though he had never been to the school he already felt at home. Slowly he stood and turned towards the two girls (Willow and Victoria). "Well I'm going to go find another compartment to change into my school robes." Spoke Alexander with a smile on his face. "I'll be back before we get to Hogwarts though I want to see if there's anyone I know on board but I doubt it." With that said Alexander gave a polite bow to the girls and as he headed out he turned once more and bowed to all those in the compartment.

    "It's been nice meeting you all but like I said I'll be back." Has Alexander shut the compartment door he wondered if any of them even cared that he was leaving. Of course he and Victoria had become friends very quickly and he thought that willow had as well. Although he wasn't sure what Albus thought of him. Oh well who cares they either liked him or didn't it wasn't like life and death. Walking down the corridor he noticed most of the compartments where completly full. Until finally he came upon a single compartment with only one boy in it.

    "Hope you don't mind me entering I'm just looking for a place to change my robes, Names Alexander Nubis and what's your's?" Said Alexander as he held out a hand to the lonely blonde haired boy. The boy looked excited but worried as well and Alexander understood he was a first year as well. "So what house are you hopeing to go into?"

    Edwin had not spoken simply watched the two discuss hogwarts. However his ears perked up when she said she had a secret for them to keep. He was quite surprised there, "A...A werewolf?" He was fascinated and leaned in "Whats it like? is the transformation painful?" Glancing outside he saw two boy discussing something (Grindelwald and Nubis) but turned back to the oddly dressed werewolf awaiting answers.
