Is everything under control here?

Nathan had first noticed the trouble brewing at the Teppenpaw table when a small fort of plates and dishes and cutlery and food formed around Joe Umland. Then Georgia Kirkly walked over, and he settled back in his seat, figuring the two prefects could handle whatever it was going on there. He kept his eye on the situation though as he took a bite of his pancakes.

It escalated quickly. He wasn’t quite sure what ‘it’ was, but it was clearly escalating if Georgia was throwing teacups on the floor. He rose, still chewing his pancake, and approached. He wasn’t intended to sneak up on them, but his mouth was still full so he waved his wand in a wordless reparo that cleaned up the broken ceramic before anyone could get hurt. He hoped they had seen him coming so the pieces moving about on their own and recombining into their original configuration didn’t startle or concern them.

He then swallowed his bite of pancake and cast a verbal summoning charm to call the teacup to him before someone stepped on it and broke it all over again. Once that was secured, he waved his wand again to clean up the spilled tea, so nobody stepped in it, slipped, and fell.

“What happened?” he asked his two prefects, more baffled than accusatory, because - Joe’s incident with the Headmaster notwithstanding - Joe and Georgia were normally calm responsible individuals unlikely to start yelling and throwing things without provocation. He wordlessly held out the teacup toward Joe who, a, hadn’t recently invoked violence upon it, and, b, had been the person originally drinking from it, as best as he could tell.

    “O-ok,” Georgia nodded, when Joe assured her he hadn’t made the teacup do that. “I don’t think you did,” she assured him. To be fair, it had been her first thought, and had nearly made her just run... more

      • I have cause for doubt, sir.Joe, Thu Feb 22 13:32
        Joe thought, he really did, but he honestly could not think of anything he had done recently which would make another person consider him an enemy. “No,” he said. “Unless you count the Headmaster,... more
        • Joe’s main enemy was the headmaster? Wow. That was hardcore. She did recall hearing a rumour that Joe had punched the man once, but had dismissed that as being completely wild and crazy. But perhaps... more

            Nathan listened to first Joe then Georgia explain the situation with varying degrees of clarity. The take away seemed to be that someone had charmed Joe’s teacup to say mean things about Georgia, but ... more
            • Joe tried not show any particular reaction after hearing all the things Georgia had to add to his description of what had happened this morning and what they didn’t know about what had caused it, but ... more
              • Georgia nodded her assurances that she would keep an eye out, whilst definitely resolving to keep her head down and avoid noticing as much as possible. They were being pranked without having done... more

                  “Not really options for me,” joked Joe. “Dad drinks coffee, but I think my mom would disown any of us kids who gave up tea.” Especially if they then took up coffee. Tea stimulated and soothed all at... more
                  • “Wow, your family sound strict,” Georgia joked when Joe mentioned that tea was basically mandatory. “I don’t really like coffee much either so I guess I’ll just go for being a bit dozy sometimes.... more
