THIS IS A THREAD FOR FIRST-YEAR GRYFFINDOR STUDENTS!!
-This is an rpg and every post has to be at least 200 words (reducio don't count!)
-You may post two times between my posts, this is something we do to let everyone get a chance to post without feeling like the thread gets "taken over" by only a few students that posts fast.
-Pleas give other students room to post between every post you make (like, once a day is completely enough in this kind of rp) but other then that, pleas react and talk to each-other as we take you through the corridors of the castle, but remember, you only have two posts between my posts.
-You can react to stuff i have said exists in one of my posts, but pleas don't introduce your own npc's in this thread.
-i will take the activity of the thread into consideration, but will most likely post once a week.
Looking over the desserts on the tables, or rather what was left of the desserts, vanish as the feast came to an end made Parcel glad he had wolfed down what he could when he could. There was always good food on the tables here at mealtimes, but the food just seemed to taste extra delicious on the welcoming feast. Parcel took his spoon from the table and using the reflection on the back he checked that he didn’t have any food stuck in his teeth. He would soon have to gather all the new first-years from his house, so he could show them the way to their common room.
While it was rather tedious work, Parcel understood the reason for why the first-years needed a chaperone on their first night in the castle. The Gryffindor common rooms door was a portrait after all. There was no way they would find it on their own. And not only was it a portrait, but you needed a password to get in! A password that the first-years didn’t know yet.
Parcel jumped up as he heard the Headmaster announce the end of the feast. In what Parcel hoped was a tough and manly voice, he shouted out over the Gryffindor Table “First-Years, come with me please! First-years this way, we will gather in the Great Hall together! Only First-years with me, the rest of you can find the way yourself, if anyone has forgotten the password then ask your friends or one of the Prefects, but Gryffindor First-years follow me!”
His manly shout was a tad bit more strained then Parcel had hoped, so it ended up more like barking then shouting.
Clearing his throat, Parcel looked around to see if everyone had gotten the message. As he saw himself satisfied by the result, Parcel nodded to himself before he turned towards the door with his cackle of first-years in tow.
Parcel pushed through the door out to the Great hall where he gathered up all the first-years by the side of the door, around himself.
“Well! Congratulations with being sorted into Gryffindor, the greatest bloody house there is! We have heroes like Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the previous Minister of Magic, Hermione Granger!” Parcel grinned widely as he looked at all the excited and maybe even some frightened faces. “So, you all better not make us look bad, we have a lot to live up to after all” He said as he tried to keep his expression more serious, unlike his normal merry self.
“My name is… mmh, long and hard to remember, but all of ya can call me Parcel, or Parce or anything of the sort really, I don’t mind it. I’m one of your prefects, so if you need anything then you can ask me. With me I have Max, another one of the Gryffindor prefects, also very ask-able if you need some questions answered.” Parcel pointed to another boy with a silver badge on his chest, much like the same badge Parcel was wearing on his own school uniform.
“There are more prefects from our house too, but they have to run around and make sure everyone in Gryffindor get the password to our common room” Parcel held up a hand to stop a student that seemed to want to ask a question “yeah, yeah, you all will get the password too, but I’ll tell it too you when we get up to the door, now, what was I talking about?” He scratched a scar on his chin as he was thinking “OH! Yes, the prefects, you might be lucky enough to meet more of them today, but if not, then you’ll see them in the coming days, the ones that was tasked with following you is me and maxy’boy” Parcel puffed max in the shoulder.
“Without dallying anymore, let’s get going! If anyone has any questions then ask them as we walk, we have a lot of stairs we need to traverse” Parcel turned and started walking out to an adjacent hall, motioning everyone to follow him.
As they entered the new hall, Parcel could hear several audible gasps from some of the first-years behind him. They had walked out in a great tall hall with stairs moving around in the air. On the walls all around them hang paintings in all shapes and sizes. And, probably to some of the muggle born students surprise, the paintings were moving! Motioning hello’s to them as they walked by, even talking to them! None of the paintings seemed to hold a conversation with the students, but now and again they could hear a “hello” or a “I hope you’ll find Hogwarts to your liking!” even a “Yes! New Gryffindor’s, how great!”.
As they started walking up the stairs, Parcel looked over the students again “Please do pay attention to where I walk, the stairs move you see, don’t want anyone of you getting lost.” He was about to move again before turning his head one more time, as if to add something he had forgotten. “and watch out for the step half way up this stair, it’s a vanishing step.” Humming to himself, Parcel started walking up the stairs.
OOC- You can fall down the vanishing step, but its only a step that vanishes, so there is only enough room for your foot to get stuck. While everyone can react to someone falling down, i will only allow two people to forget about the step and actually fall for it, its first come first serve, if no one want's to fall, then i'll pick one randomly in my next post. (you neither gain nor lose anything by walking into the step, its only a way for you all to interact with each other)
One day we'll all die, but all other days we won't
