This means war!
Sat Sep 30, 2017 21:41

Mortimer scowled. Okay, he was usually scowling but this was a deeper scowl. There were lots of occasions that caused him to scowl more deeply than usual such as having to go to parties and make small talk with people. Or deal with students.

This was a deeper scowl that that even. This was the sort of scowl that probably broke records.

Lately,he'd been noticing something dastardly about. Something that ranked up there with the Satori and being cooped up with his employees for months.

Glitter! Glitter was the worst substance ever invented! And he'd been noticing it everywhere . Mortimer was trying his best to get rid of this scourge but it was starting to seem an impossible task.

And now it was on his shoe . Someone was going to pay as it had to be a student prank. Someone was going to be.....well,actually the punishment he felt most just was actually one that made the most obvious sense, to clean up their mess. It was also the cruelest since glitter was so bloody difficult to get rid of.

    • I believe I can fly - Quidditch PitchParker, Sat Sep 30 06:58
      Parker knew he needed more practice flying if he was going to be a valuable member of the team. So he took his broom and walked to the Quidditch Pitch. He had hoped there wouldn't be anyone there... more

        Amelia’s pessimism about the Quidditch season had proven depressingly accurate, but she kept practicing anyway. For one thing, she still had a good few years at Sonora to go, and for another,... more
        • Parker watched the woman fly down to him. She was super graceful in her decent and that made Parker extremely self conscious of his own ability. Parker thought about her question for a second. He... more

            Amelia smiled kindly at the warning, though the object of her amusement didn’t see it with his eyes closed over his broom. “Should be one in the equipment shed,” said Amelia, pointing. “I’ll go check ... more
            • Hope it doesn't strike too hardParker, Sun Oct 1 05:55
              Parker was thankful for her going to get the Quaffle as he'd likely be stuck in the shed for a few minutes if not longer. He took the time to do a few quick stretches and get on his broom. "I'm... more
              • Yeah, probably for the best.Amelia, Sun Oct 1 09:19
                Amelia shrugged when Parker asked if they were competitors. “On game day, sure,” said Amelia. “But today, I won’t tell your captain if you don’t tell mine, how’s that sound?” In this spirit of... more

                    He caught the Quaffle, which was good. It wasn’t a great catch, but it was a catch and a better start than some made. Amelia clapped lightly in approval. “Good job,” she said. Parker tossed it back,... more

                      Seeker being fancier? More difficult for sure. Parker caught the Quaffle, moving his broom a bit to make sure he caught it solidly in his center, like they taught him in PeeWee football. "Go up and... more

          Maybe it was her magic, physically showing through. That was probably dumb though. And she'd never noticed any of the seventh years sparkling, or the staff. It was probably just some random glitter.... more

            Juniper nodded. "Thank you, I'd really appreciate that." She smiled shyly at Georgia. It was nice of her to offer to help. "Let's get to it." She didn't want anyone else to notice though it was... more

        Parker choked on his food when Cleo came up behind him. Not only was he eating fast as he wanted to explore the garden a bit, but her smile still made him feel a bit warm. After fully swallowing his... more
