Reducio
Interacting with Elena Jones, Alan Vanes, Open for Interactions


She listened intently to the Professor's directives nodding intently at his every word for word. This was her first R.O.A.M event and while she didn't really get a great vibe off Griffith, she understood the boundaries that had been laid. After all, it was all being done to ensure them and the animals were not in any sort of harm though judging from the Professor's character, she would guess it was more for the creature's sake than her own. She smiled at that thought as soon as the cruppies were released, everyone got to work claiming one. She figured she might as well follow suit, spying Jones nearby, the prefect made her way over to her friend smiling as a cruppie made eye contact with her."Hi, Elena, cute little things, aren't they?"She said softly reaching out a hand for the creature to inspect and inspect it did, it seemed to almost nod it's head in approval snuggling her palm. She grinned wide gently cradling the creature in her arms slowly stroking it with almost a calm touch. It gave her a sense of relief.

There also happened to be a boy present but she paid him no mind eyeing her little crup."I think I'm gonna call you....Lily."She said to it stroking it gently."Lily the Crup."The name..it was almost peaceful in a sense. The animal looked up at her with those eyes darting here and there as it snuggled against the girl's chest. She could get used to this. If all R.O.A.M events happened to be like this, she would have no problem enjoying this program."What names have you given yours?"She asked glancing at Elena and the other boy. They seemed to be enjoying their little pets as well, pets for the moment.

Eris sniffed, plopping her puppy down into the snow with a careful motion. Eyes on the crup, as he leapt around and sniffed at Eris and her favourite professor. Crossing her arms with a mock defiant gesture, Eris stuck her tongue out in a manner that was extremely undignified and was definitely not the epitome of lady-like. Leaping up, as the crup licked at her leg, Eris' posture and stance were ruined, as she merrily giggled before leaning down to pet at the puppy.

Smiling tensely at the Elena girl, who seemed predisposed to wander away and visit the other children, one of which including Alan Vanes. Huh, Alan seemed remarkably popular. There was also a boy in a wheelchair, which Eris found odd. Wasn't there magic that could fix that? No matter. Maybe it was simply a fashion statement. A strange one at that. With the wheelchair, the boy was around the same height as the miniature Gryffindor herself.

From her spot on the floor, Eris turned up to look at Professor Griffith, and merely shook her head. "I am not an old lady! You're the old one. You're what, a hundred? I'm just twelve! Laughing and shaking her head, Eris stroked the puppy again.

The crup had already interested himself in the snow at Eris' feet, and his nose was deep in the white snow. The chill did not seem to bother the pup, as it happily dug through the snow with small paws and a wagging tail. Eris seemed deeply amused by the puppy, watching it as if it was the most awe-inspiring thing she had ever seen.

Turning her head back up to Griffith and shaking her head, Eris grinned again. This time, her grin seemed a bit more sheepish, as Eris looked down at the puppy. "He doesn't have a name yet, no. I don't think it's a good idea to name him before we get to know each-other, you know? I wouldn't want to be named the second my parents found out they had a kid."

i punched a wall and cried. BAM BAM BAM!

Interacting with Rosa the Cruppy, Elena Jangleton, Alan Vanes
Mentions Tina Addington and Professor Griffith
"Hi Jangles! They really are little sweethearts, I love them, and they look so good with two tails, Griffith is right." She smiled down and Rosa who licked Elena's hand before going back to calmly chewing on the blanket she'd got for it, "This is little Rosa, she's remarkably chilled, and also one of the few things on this earth as sweet as Alan over here."

She beamed at her friends and decided to introduce them, "Alan, this is my friend Elena, she's awesome and a complete badass, I love her. Jangles, this is Alan, one of the absolute nicest kids you'll ever meet, I think he's made of rainbows. I think Addi's around here as well, we should probably say hi to her at some point but for now I think this group is pretty large hey?"

Ah, I get it now, kindly leave before I'm forced to punch you.

Interacting with Nikolai the Cruppy, Mentions Professor Griffiths


Yeah nope. Okay. The girl was ignoring her, and talking to Alan, so he could make his escape. 
Rowan sighed softly and wheeled himself away, choosing the lovely outer portions of the circle to relax with Nikolai. Well, more like try not to be noticed, actually. Social interaction could go to hell. He preferred the animals anyhow. 
Hopefully he could salvage this club meeting somehow with some positive note. He refused to spend this valuable time moping. 
Professor Griffiths was already talking with a girl, no hope in talking to him there. And... yeah. He was the only person he really knew here. 
The Crup seemed to have more energy now though, so he set it down in the snow. It sat at his feet for a moment, many tails wagging. Rowan took his flower crown off, slipping a flower out of the weaving. They had no thorns, so it would serve his purposes well.
He then threw it for the cruppy, and the beast ran off to go retrieve it. 
His crown was destroyed, but he didn’t mind. He had others. 
The crup barked at him, though it was slightly muffled by the flower stem in its small mouth. It dropped it at his feet, looking at him expectantly. He threw another flower, and the cycle began again.

I walk upon the broken shards that used to be my heart, for I have nothing left to bleed.
Limited attendance for a while. Expect to see me on and off.

Interacting with Elenas | mentions Rowan&Moffy | o-open?
The second year faced the young boy in the wheelchair, wondering what got him to sit in a wheelchair. Was it something magic could not fix? The Gryffindor shook his head slightly, reminding himself that this was none of his business and that it was probably very impolite to ask himself those questions. He did not know the other boy's story but who was he to judge. Maybe he too had to go to a specialist in order to get a cure, however this could get expensive fairly quickly and not everyone had this kind of money. Alan could not say that the boy was impolite and he would have loved to at least try to reply, but he got distracted before he could even open his mouth to speak up to the other boy. His hair seemed dyed and Alan had to think of the way he always dyed his hair, because he really loved his mother's blonde hair. His father's hair looked cool, but his mother's hair was very pretty. But now he had his hair in this hazel brown, his real hair color to support his dad from afar, as he could not do much except sending his wishes and keeping his parents updated.

Another girl joined the small group and greeted Elena, making the Gryffindor nervously look around. He never met this girl... what was it with him having to socialize this much? That was not what he signed up for when he read Moffy's flyer. She seemed excited though, naming her cruppy Lily, making Alan smile. Lilies looked pretty when they were growing, so he could see why people would name an animal or child that way. He himself had a more childish approach to name his cruppy, but he bet no one would mind, as no one would even understand it. It would be a secret name between the cruppy and him and it was a cool sounding name! It would be the coolest Crup when he was older, because he had such a nice name and all the other Crups would want to be his friend.

Alan also liked the name Rosa, even though it sounded very girlish, but it fit the small creature in Elena's arms, gently chewing on the blanket. Taking a look down to the little varmint, who still was proudly gnawing on the lace, carefree at this moment. But he listened along to the conversations as his ears pointed upwards and seemed to twitch from time to time when some noise was especially intriguing. Elena continued to introduce him to her friend and his cheeks grew warm, as he grew more nervous. Looking for the fourth person he noticed that Rowan seemed to have disappeared. When did he went away? Alan did not even noticed too busy to listen to Elena and well... Elena. This was damned to be confusing and Alan did not like when things go confusing, but apparently he had no luck with stuff like that, because everything always seemed to end up in a pile of confusion.

The Second year awkwardly looked around until he found the boy that had been close to them earlier and he could not help but feel bad, as the other one might feel really sad now and this had not been what the Gryffindor intended. For a moment he watched him play fetch with the small crup, before he looked at Elena, his friend, before glancing at the other Elena that he never met before. ”Uhm... h-hi...”

R.O.A.M event 1. Cruppies  PV 

The professor noticed the currently wheelchair bound Gryffindor try to join in a conversation, or at least start one up, before he was ignored into oblivion and banished to a corner of the little round realm. He felt a bit bad for the boy, although he wasn't going to do anything about it. That was a matter of popularity and friend groups, and something that he was far too old to be able to help fix. Making people interact with each other would only make things awkward. He would maybe check in later, but for now he'd settle for talking with Eris.

"Oh no, I'm not falling for that. You're probably some little 200 year old lady that just made herself look young and small. Can I call you Granny? You're twice my age, right? But you seem wise, anyway. I like the idea of seeing what their personality is like first. It's what I tend to do, but everyone has their own way of naming things."

He did, however, want to make sure that students would have a reason to ask questions. If they thought that he was too busy talking with Eris, they wouldn't ask anything, and if they didn't ask anything they wouldn't learn. They were here to interact, and learn as much as they had interest in learning.

"If anyone has any questions, I promise I'm not too old to talk with more than one person at a time."

“Evil isn’t the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as Evil, maybe more so, and it’s a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against Stupid. That might actually make a difference.”

Interacting with Cruppy- Open for interaction.
In all honesty, it did hurt a little. But Rowan wasn’t about to go trying again, or even worse, looking for their pitty. If they didn’t want to interact with him? Fine. Nikolai was adorable company anyhow. 

And they were still playing fetch, which was fun!
Though the crup was wearing himself out quickly. Rowan slowed down the fetching, picking the beast up for a moment so that it could catch its breath. The air around Rowan was slightly warmer, so it wouldn’t burn Nikolai’s tiny lungs like the cold air would. 
He remembered playing tag with a group of kids when he was a tiny child. He would run in the snow for hours until he fell over. Even now the air burned his lungs, so he could only imagine how the crup would handle it. 
So he did the usual thing, and wrapped the small animal in his winter cloak, warming it further. It was a furry beast but at the same time, he had short fur, so it would only do so much. 
Rowan glanced up for a moment as the professor spoke to them all, before he focused back in on the crup, who was already half asleep in his arms, gnawing slightly on his thumb. Adorable.

R.O.A.M event 1. Cruppies  PV 

Interacting with Cruppy and Professor Griffith; Open to Interactions
When Tina heard Professor Griffith say he was open to questions, she almost began to raise her hand. However, fear stopped her. She has heard of Professor Griffith's reputation and didn't believe she had the time or energy to handle his abrasive attitude. She was very sensitive to even the slightest of mean comments. Still, she wondered so much about the Cruppy's abilities as Wrep. What else could they do and what is the less obvious difference between Crups and Cruppies? Perhaps she would read a book later to satisfy her curiosity. Slowly approaching the stern professor with her Cruppy in her arms, she timidly says, "Excuse me, Professor Griffith. I just wanted to let you know that the name of my Cruppy is Wrep."

Interacting with Elena Jones, Alan Vanes, Professor Griffith

"They sure are adorable."She said agreeing with Elena stroking Lily between the ears as the crup found comfort in her warm hands shifting position now and then to tilt a curious eye at who was holding, in response, she would just smile down at it and speak to it in a soothing tone which seemed to relax it a bit."Hello!"She said brightly smiling at the boy to whom she was introduced sticking out a hand for him to shake. He seemed nice enough and she always was willing to meet new people, though he seemed a bit hesitant to her or maybe that was just her. "Elena Jangleton of Gryffindor."She said introducing herself to the boy. Alan, huh...she hadn't seen him around before. She felt a tugging on her sleeve and looked down to find her crup gently chewing on her sleeve, she didn't really care anyways. The creature was too cute to be judged.

Speaking of cuteness, she heard Griffiths voice once again asking for questions and she fell into silence pondering. It really was a cute thing."Shame we can't keep them, huh?"She remarked to the group at hand. It gave her a sense of relief and the prefect was secretly happy she had signed up for this class. Now that she thought about it, a question did pop into her head though asking it was an entirely another story. The professor did not seem to be the type of person who was exactly approachable nor the most friendliest but she had to start somewhere. The girl slowly raised her hand deciding to speak from a safe distance away and when she was noticed, she would fire away her question."Professor? Um..I was wondering, these must be quite common creatures in the wizarding world. Where do they originate from? She said eyeing Lily with a sort of fondness. It really was appealing to the eye.

"Are you okay Alan? I know lots of people can be a bit, um, worrying. Makes my brain go a bit haywire sometimes." Elena hoped maybe if someone else was working not too well around the others, that it would help to know she wasn't, "If it's too much we can slip away and go do something with our crups somewhere else. Like, maybe just go chill closer to Griffith, he sort of lets off a 'don't approach me' field. For most people, I'm immune to it."

She saw Jangles talking to Griffith and smiled, shuffling a little closer to lurk on the edge of the conversation.

Ah, I get it now, kindly leave before I'm forced to punch you.

Eris merely smiled, waving goodbye and retreating to play with her crup on her own. The small puppy made her feel ecstatic, and it did feel nice to talk to a professor who she knew wasn't evil. Hair flashing a happy shade of pink, she retreated towards the blanket and flopped down on it.

Looking at the people around, the small girl studied the group of people. How strange. She never really had taken the time to talk to any first years before, but Alan had, apparently. Avoiding the large group, Eris marched over to the wheelchair bound kid and his crup.

Studying him, she carefully carried her own crup. "You look shy. The whole point of a club is to meet people, you know. She didn't mention the wheel-chair. it didn't concern her. Hell, Eris had her own array of injuries.

Interaction with Nikolai the Cruppy and Eris Fawley. 
“Our definitions of a club are both very different then. Rowan Bane. You?”


He spoke without missing a beat, his voice a little stronger than usual. She wanted blunt. No- She was blunt. Maybe a bit of both. But she would most likely just walk away if he was meek and soft spoken the entire time. A little standoffish, he expected. Very childish as a whole. But they were children anyhow, it was expected of most of them. 

Read the room, Rowan. If you cannot do that much, you won’t appeal to people. 

Rowan looked up at her, the smile for the crup still on his face. Her hair was very pink. He tilted his head to the side as he took her in.

R.O.A.M event 1. Cruppies  PV 

A little ravenclaw had come up with the idea to call her Cruppy "rep". He wasn't sure if she was trying to make the name sound like a thug, shortening "street reputation" to the shorter version. If she was, then he was going to have to keep the twinge out of his eye when he started to cringe. But she was a ravenclaw, it was more likely that it was just some weird word she found in a icelandic dictionary that she mistook for a thriller novel. It was a distinctly Ravenclaw thing to do.

"Well, I'm sure they'll get quite a rep with a name like that. Interesting choice."

It was a pretty bad pun, but it was right there for the taking. In the immortal words of every 18 year old during their first visit to a tattoo parlor 'No regrets'. He was slightly disappointed when the little Gryffindor 'sassed away into the wind', but was pleasantly surprised when she went to Mr. Banes. If that girl turned out to be some kind of mind reader, he would not be surprised. Well, to be fair he would be very surprised. But he'd be able to say that he called it.

But he was saved from internal pondering by another little girl who he almost recognized. But not quite. She asked about where they came from, which was a pretty good question to ask, especially in a situation like this one.

"Well, they're not as common as you might think. Because they are aggressive to muggles, they are often labelled as rabid or psycho and put down. And not many wizards have the patience required to take the training. It's unknown where they came from exactly. Some people think that a wizard created them in retaliation for the witch hunts, and the hounds they used to try and track us down. Although the muggles didn't have much luck in their hunts, it's not a stretch to imagine some wizard planning a retaliation, so it's still the theory I tend to adhere to."

“Evil isn’t the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as Evil, maybe more so, and it’s a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against Stupid. That might actually make a difference.”

Eris knelt down to pet her own crup, watching the boy with the flower crown speak. He spoke quite fast, but she found herself understanding every word. Brushing a pale finger down her puppy's back, Eris studied the boy and shook her head.

Clearing hair out of her face, Eris titled her chin to the side. She seemingly ignored the wheelchair still, even if her eyes had been glued onto it for a moment. "Eris Fawley." She replied, before frowning.

What was his idea of a club then? "And what, pray tell, do you think a club is?"

Tina smiled at Professor Griffith before she walked back to her corner. It surprised her that his comment wasn't mean. In fact, she chuckled internally when she realized that he had mistaken Wrep for Rep. It almost made her laugh out loud when she realized he was making a pun. She set the very awake Wrep on the ground before giving them a hug. The little pup began whining and Tina knew that they wanted another belly rub. As she began rubbing their belly, Tina finally noticed the other students in the group. Some were older than her while others were people she knew.
