Various cast * Hogwarts and the Forbidden Forest * Complete

Where secrets lie in the border fires,
in the humming wires
Hey man, you know
you're never coming back
Friday, May 12th/Saturday, May 13th * The Witching Hour

The corridors of Hogwarts were still, except for the occasional ghost or House Elf, and in their dormitories the students safely slumbered.

But in the staff meeting room, chaos reigned.

Professors in various states of alertness — some groggy and in nightdress, others prepared and eager to go out and face the night and whatever might be in it — had answered their Headmistress' summons.

( Firenze stood and watched Madame Pomfrey attempt to calm the Flying instructor. )

Bow Down Before The One You Serve
You're Going To Get What You Deserve

Friday, May 12th ~ Night

He waited, watching, by now knowing that she would be along and the annoying one - the shadow would follow. He had briefly thought of turning the other - he looked strong - but he was attached to her and it would not do to have his possession challenged. He would enjoy taking her away - the man had been in his way for far too long and he had to take her now - the moon would be full the next night - he had missed the last one - his pack would be strong as she needed to be - if she was unworthy the wolf would devour her, not wasting his seed.

He could hear them approach and turned to glare at the voices urging him on, to take what was his and saw them, the faces from the past, bloody and mangled. He would not make the mistake again, his children would not fail him. Excited and breathing heavily he moved behind the one that would hinder him, deny him his family, as she - the mother moved away. Dragging the struggling man back he delivered a blow to his head, watching in satisfaction as he sunk to the ground. He was tempted to snap his neck - but anxious to move back to her, lest another encroach on his territory. ( Let him live - let him live and suffer and know that she is mine - that he failed to keep us apart... )

Bright Is The Moon High In Starlight, Chill Is The Air Cold As Steel Tonight
We Shift, Call Of The Wild, Fear In Your Eyes
It's Later Than You Realized

Tuesday, March 14th ~ Late Evening/Night

He was in there. Hidden away and trying to deny what he was. They both were, he could sense it. They were to blame, needed reminding of their place, to take responsibility for the failings of the past. He couldn't reach them here, couldn't find a way in. In anger he made another attempt to scale the walls of the fortress they had sequestered themselves in, giving a feral cry as he fell to the ground, claws no match for the stone.

Eyes opened as he rose off the ground, aches of the body fading. The nervous shifting of animals called attention and he paused as he caught their scent. Fur - blood, rushing through their veins as adrenalin coursed - but there was more.... Lingering, hanging onto his senses and teasing... They smelled of his mate, his chosen one.

WWN ~ Noon News Update ~ Mourning Lost Innocence

Mourning Lost Innocence
Friday, February 24th ~ Noon

An advertisement for The Phoenix ended and a female voice in the background comes through.

"With all the crap going on around here lately I think I'll sign up for some classes."

"I doubt you'll find the professor's arse on any exams. You wouldn't be going there to learn, you'd be going there to ogle, harass and dig for dirt, Rita."

"Ezekiel Brunderbluss here with your noon news update."

A rustle of paper is heard before Rita's dulcet tones can be heard again.

"And your point is? It got me through Hogwarts, didn't it?"

"You have absolutely no shame do you?"

"It's very liberating, would you like me to teach you?"

"Someone get her the hell out of here. Rita, back off! Remember our discussion on personal space?"

"Well, if you'd hold still I'm trying to explore yours."

Sometimes Things Should Never Be Found.
Monday, February 13th - Mid-Morning

There was no way to know how long the children had been missing. One of Maria Rufford's dorm mates had alerted Sprout early this morning that Maria hadn't come to bed that night. That in itself wasn't terribly worrisome as children had been known to fall asleep in an alcove studying or get mysteriously stuck in a room as the castle settled for the night.

Then someone chimed in that Thadeus Harper was also missing.

Two teens out all night was more of a "finger wagging, let's have a word with your parents" offense than a reason to panic.

What If This Whole Crusade's A Charade
And Behind It All There's A Price To Be Paid
For The Blood On Which We Dine
Justified In The Name Of The Holy And The Divine

Sunday, February 12th ~ Early Evening through Morning ~ Monday, February 13th

The voices are closer, human. Female - high pitched, nervous and exhilarated all at the same time. A boy - nervous, covering with bravado and trying to hold onto a timber rather than a squeak. He can smell them now, the teenage hormones - sweat and sex and musk, the fear of an illicit rendezvous, the fear of the forest. And underneath that, the scent of the forest, old death, new life.

A gruesome smile crosses his face as the pain begins, twisting, contorting - his screams rebound in the night and the birds flee their perches to fill the sky. As it abates, he can sense panicked movement, hushed crying voices and then the footfalls of desperate running. He raises his head and growls, the sound elicits a shriek of terror and as he rushes through the overgrown foliage at them.

Rose and Viktor / Viktor and Neville -- Ginny's to Rose's to Hogwarts -- Complete

Let Me Show You Where I Live
Saturday, February 4th, Evening

Rose had watched Viktor get her coat, her stomach fluttering with each contact they had and even more because he was walking her home. I am so glad I went to Ginny's party.

Looking up at him, she felt she should say something, but nothing that would just be foolish small talk. She looked down, hoping Viktor hadn't noticed her just looking up at him like that.

"Um, my flat is on the next street over, but it isn't too long of a walk."

How Many You Betray

Saturday, January 14 ~ Late Night/Early Morning

He had watched the denizens of this place move about freely for days while he hid in the shadows. That they should be allowed to go on with their lives - laughing, smiling, weak - filled him with ire. That they should look so easy in his presence, unaware of the consequences of their actions - the reality he was living in now - what they had caused...

All he could feel was rage. An all consuming rage as he longed to feel their flesh rip beneath his hands, could almost taste warm rivulets of their blood running from his mouth. Thinking of it now as he ran through the woods, his mouth began to water as the saliva ran down his jaw.

Shroud in the night he slunk into the town, ears straining for signs of life. He paused in the dim light shining from a window, following a voice to a door that closed too soon. The hunt was on.

Hours later he awoken on the floor of the shack he had claimed as his own, clad in debris and blood, giving evidence to the night before. Raising a finger to his lips, he tasted. Not human. More's the pity.

Roger, Vera and The Watcher ~ Hogwarts Grounds ~ Complete

Evening Patrol
Saturday, January 14 ~ Late Evening

Roger sighed as he took off out the front doors of Hogwarts for his shift patrolling the grounds. He had been dodging Slughorn all week, and from what he had been able to see of Vera, she had too. Unfortunately Roger hadn't been able to dodge Horace in the same direction as Vector at all. Between that and classes starting up again - well, Roger was starting to think he'd lost his chance after he'd slid down a bannister that had - very unfortunately - moved on him at the party and left him stuck. When it had finally deigned to move again he'd been besieged with hosting duties.

Wasn't my idea to let Malfoy run around naked - that was Remus' fault! But who gets the blame? Yeah.

Vigilantes in Hogsmeade?
Tuesday, January 3rd, Afternoon

An official sounding voice comes from the radio as advertisement for the newest Nimbus model ended. "Ezekiel Brunderbluss here with your noon news update. Aurors have officially closed on-scene investigations into the disturbance that occurred in Hogsmeade late Friday night carrying on into early Saturday morning. Let's go now to Lachlan Peasegood who is trying to talk to investigators as they pack up. Lachlan?"

There is momentary static and then the sounds of a busy street. Warm male tones began to speak. "Thank you Zeke. I'm at the scene of what officials have said is the result of vigilante action which may or may not be related to the recent vampire warnings issued. I'm standing here with Auror Dawlish who has agreed to talk to us. Auror Dawlish, have break downs in Ministry effectiveness led for the need for groups such as this one?"
