She had never liked the tales of the Triwizard based on what they knew her uncle had had to endure. She had always told him that she would NEVER be a part of it if she could help it. And yet, Teddy himself wanted to be. Not because he wanted eternal fame or glory.. No, he wanted to do it in a sense to feel closer to his parents who he had never known AND as a way to better relate with his godfather. Those were his main reasons, but also to make sure to help their students and make sure no one died this time.
Before he could say any of that, Victorie told him how she didn't want to speak about it and he found the love of his life in his arms and pulling him into a kiss. How she could do that and so easily, Teddy didn't know. But he didn't regret it because she always made him feel calm and safe. She was the ONLY one who could make him feel that way always.
[#f1be0e "I don't think they quite understand that I am a professor and not another student. They talk to me as more a friend than a proper teacher. Not that I mind, but I do wish that they would pay better attention to the lessons. Just to see if they had been, I gave a fairly easy quiz..Almost all of them failed. Only a handful passed...If this keeps up, I don't know what to do.."] Teddy said quietly as he had taken the seat across from her, rubbing the bridge of his nose just as he had been told his father did when he was stressed or worried.
The faintest of smiles did come to his lips when he looked up again. [#f1be0e "I'm sorry love. I shouldn't have put all of that on you.. How has your first week been? The students?"] He asked as he wanted the attention off him and was truly curious.

A small smile came to rosy pink lips as she turned away from the girls who stalked off in their usual huffy fashion. It never bothered her and she was actually thankful they were gone. She had had her fair share of their shit and hated watching others get it too annoyed her to no ends. Especially when they were like the boy she had just saved from the twits. Of course she had seen him around and they had classes together, but until now never spoken. Both it seemed liked their space and to keep their distance for the most part.
[b "Hey, it's really not a big deal. Morgan and her little group are always this pathetic. I just hated watching you go through that.. And..well it's nice to meet you, Luthrix.. well I mean officially. I'm Serena..Rena."] The girl said softly as she took the seat that he had motioned to.
She was thoughtful for a moment before she spoke next to answer his question. [b "I'll answer your question..But can you also answer mine of why you couldn't do anything with her being a girl? No one should have to endure that rubbish.. Especially someone like you.."] Her words were meaning that he seemed like a really nice boy and deserved so much better.
[b "It was a little over twenty years ago that they introduced the tournament here at Hogwarts after it had been banned for many years. They thought it would be a good way to introduce friendly competion among the three major magic schools... Also open a way to bring them togerher. But things went to hell when four champions had been chosen.. One of the four being Harry Potter as part of Voldemort's plot to come back fully...and the other champion from Hogwarts lost his life.. Because of the events that came to pass that year.. The tournament had been banned again. Just this year they thought opening it again and trying would be a good idea.."]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The black haired woman was running late as always. Joys of sleeping in the dungeon's and not really knowing what time it was. She had her bag over her shoulder, and she was about to turn the corner when she heard three sets of foot fall's behind her. [b "Look who it is. The murderous serpent queen"] Ruthie cooed. Alanna looked towards her and crossed her arms over her chest. [#4f9c63 "What do you bloody want?"] she snapped. The three laughed lightly, and started moving towards her. That's when she saw the red headed woman, who she hated more than anything. But right at the moment, she was glad she had shown up.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [b "This doesn't concern you Potter. This is between us three, and the serpent. So bugger off, and find someone else to deal with"] Ruthie said as she tossed her blonde hair over her shoulder. Alanna just stood there, as she watched everything unfolding. She couldn't really do anything, as she was all of a sudden surrounded. Ruthie was the first one to lash out. [b "You aren't welcome here. After what your father did. We want you gone, and you will leave"] she hissed, as she drew her arm back and hit the woman across the face.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The slap stung like no other, and her hand flew to her cheek and she looked towards the other two. They were all about to take their shot at her. She wasn't feeling the best, and now because of these three she was about to get the shit beaten out of her. That's when they heard another sound of footsteps, and her eyes darted to where Lily was standing. There was Professor Flitwick, and he looked at the woman before him. [b [i "What in the bloody hell is going on here? You aren't supposed to be in the halls children. Get to your classed, or you all lose house points"]] he said. That's when Ruthie turned on her.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [b "We aren't done with you dirty blood."] she spat at her. Alanna was shocked. She had been treated badly before, but never to the point to where someone spit on her. The three friends ran off down the hall, and Alanna was left alone to clean up her things. Flitwick was gone as well. The only person that was left was Lily. [#4f9c63 "I hope you enjoyed the show.. Make sure to come back for the ending"] she hissed out. She hadn't realized she had dropped her book bag, and everything had spilled out. She let out a sigh as she bent to pick everything up, and shoved it back into her bag.]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway Scorpius had just come back from the boy's wash rooms when he heard someone call out his name. When he looked over to the new student, he cocked his head to the side. He wasn't in the mood to really piss anyone off, that and he wasn't like his father at all. When Sam started asking about the Triwizard Tournament, he felt his heart drop into his stomach. What was he supposed to tell the boy? A lie? He wasn't really like that. He could be if he wanted too, but he would let Sam ask his questions. He moved over to a chair, and he sat down and crossed his arms over his chest looking him up and down.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [#9D0000 "The Tournament was done twenty years ago. It was supposed to bring out the fun in everything. There's four tasks, and at the end of each one you would end up getting that much closer to the Triwizard Cup. The tasks were hella hard, and it's trying on the body. My father wasn't apart of it, but Harry Potter was. Somehow his name had been put into the cup, and honestly it had changed that man's life. Another student from here was apart of it, but he was killed. I'm not going to get into all of that though. But when the student was killed, they banned the Triwizard, until this year"]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [#9D0000 "If I were you, I would avoid going. Because history is bound to repeat itself, and you don't wanna be the one to be killed. Now get to the Great Hall for breakfast"] he said. He then pushed himself up, and gathered up his things. He took them back to the boy's dorm, and made his way to the Great Hall himself. He was hungry, and he wanted to catch a glimpse of Lily anyway. He hadn't realized he had gotten feelings for the woman, until Summer break, when he found himself thinking about her countless times.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway "There was something about the woman that seemed to draw him in. He didn't know what it was, but he hoped this year he would act upon his feelings. He walked into the Great Hall, walked over to his house table and sat down. He started piling food onto his plate, scanning the many faces for her's. That face he's been dreaming about for months. Trying to put what he told Sam out of his mind. He hoped to God the Triwizard wasn't coming back, but he had a really strong feeling it was.]
Brown eyes rolled as she could hear the ever ending whispers as she passed. The school was constantly whispering about her, her siblings, cousins, and the one girl who was said to be the daughter of the monster who started it all. Constant were the rumours. Constant were the questions. And constant where those who were asking her out. It was all on hellish nightmare. None of them tried to get to know her for her. They all wanted to know her all thanks to her family name. Her family legacy and fame.
[#e515cc [i 'So it's going to be the same this year as all the rest. But to make this all the more fun, they're brining back the Triwizard Tournament. And that thing is said to bring 'honour, glory', etc. to oneself and their family. Yet the last time it was hosted over twenty years ago a student died on these very grounds. Are looking for a way to have history repeat itself?']] All of that was in her head as she was slowly making her way down the spiraling staircases which loved to move. And because she had been so lost in thought, one Lily Luna Potter got caught on one set that was about to move. Not having a choice or anywhere else she could go to avoid it, the young woman gripped onto the railing and had a "nice" morning ride.
The moment the stairs stopped, Lily was quick to resume her pace and to make her way down the stairs before they could move again. Getting to the bottom, the redhead came across a group of girls going towards Alana. Now she and Alana HATED the other and made the others life hell. One could say it was in their blood thanks to who their parents were. But one thing Lily could not stand was bullying and that was what the group of girls was doing.
[#e515cc "Rich to come from you Ruthie, Becca, and Harriet. The three of you are ALWAYS trying to get a boy. Might actually have better luck if you kept your mouths shut for once."] The Potter girl muttered as she was playing with black painted fingernails, making her way towards the small group. She was known to be sweet when she wanted to be, but she could also be as unpredictable and vicious as her mother when it was called for. So she was going to let the girls choose which Lily they dealt with this morning.

The teen male looked around the common room and sighed as he was watching groups come and go. They all knew each other and had been here since their first years. He on the other hand was new and just getting to Hogwarts this year. His mother had died and his father couldn't handle keeping him around because he was a constant reminder and so he was sent to live with his aunt who had attended Hogwarts herself. The young man had been in the castle for the last few days before the start of term because Headmistress McGonagall had been kind enough to house him for the final few days since his aunt had to go back to work and on an international "business trip at that. And so in that time, Samuel, Sam had gotten sorted into Slytherin and a small chance to learn the castle and grounds.
Slowly he shook his head to bring himself back from the thoughts that the dancing flames had brought back to mind as that had been where his eyes had settled after the last group had gone. He could NOT afford to be late to breakfast again. But he had been told that there was an event taking place at the school. One that had not been held in over twenty years. And to well he had no one he really could ask because most times he kept to himself. So he was going to see if he could get the "Slytherin Prince" to tell him about it. Why not since his family had been around the school for ages?
[#e84a70 "Hey, Scorpius..."] Sam found himself saying quietly as the other teen male had made his way into the common room. And he could say the other looked tired. Or that was the thought that crossed his mind. But he was quick to recover himself and speak again before he lost his nerve. [#e84a70 "All the others have been talking about.. I think the called it the 'Triwizard Tournament'... Can you tell me more? Mean you know...with this not being my school until this year and all?"] It was worth thee try. And the boy wasn't lying. He literally was "American bred" until this year and the loss of his mother. He only hoped the rumours that surrounded the Malfoy boy weren't true and that he WOULD be nice enough to explain it.

[font "tempus sans itc" The blonde woman looked down at the parchment before her. She was already needed to grade papers, and she was nervous about it. She was silently kicking herself, but deep down she knew she was glad to be back here. Even if she was one of the youngest professor's ever to work for Hogwarts. She chewed on her lip lightly as she flipped though each student's papers. Some of the answer's were wrong, and in a way she felt like she was doing them dirty by giving them a bad grade. That's what being a professor was about.]
[font "tempus sans itc" She looked up and over her shoulder. The sun was still shining, and the weather was still perfect outside. She pushed herself away from the desk and went to open the window. She let in the fresh air, and a small smile crossed over her lips. Watching as the students were out about on the grounds, made her heart lighter. She felt like she was finally home once more. She jumped slightly when she heard Teddy's voice, and realized she had gotten wrapped up in her thoughts. Her cheeks turned a light shade of pink as she turned around.]
[font "tempus sans itc" He was speaking about the Triwizard Tournament, and her heart sank a bit. She honestly didn't know how to feel about it. Her uncle had his name thrown in there, and that's when Lord Voldemort had come back. The worst time of their lives. She shuddered at the thought of it. [#FFB6C1 "I honestly don't know what to think of it.. I'm scared for the students, because I feel like something horrible is bound to happy like it did with Uncle Harry..."] she whispered. She then wrapped her arms around herself moving away from the window.]
[font "tempus sans itc" [#FFB6C1 "You aren't the only one who has a really bad feeling about all of this. I'm avoiding putting my name in, I don't think I can handle the challenges like my Uncle did.. Just thinking about it is making my stomach turn"] she admitted. She then closed the distance between them, and grabbed the front of his shirt, pulling him into the office. She closed the door behind him, before sliding her arms around his neck, and tangled her fingers into his hair. She was much shorter than he was.]
[font "tempus sans itc" That's one of the many things she loved about him. When he was standing beside her, she felt safe. She kept her fingers tangled in his hair, as she gently led his head down to her's. Her lips found his, and she kissed him gently. The kiss lasted for a little bit before she pulled back, her heart hammering inside of her chest, a slow smile spreading over her face. [#FFB6C1 "Let's not talk about this right now.. I know it's important, but I want to hear how your week has been"] she whispered. She kissed him again, before letting him go.]
[font "tempus sans itc" She felt like she hadn't seen him in months, when it's only been a week. When she would try seeing him, something always popped up, so having this time alone with him, is all that mattered to her at the moment. She moved back behind the desk and sat down. She pushed the parchment aside, as she waited for him to start talking. She wanted to hear about his first week, and how his students were. She felt her heart flutter a bit just watching him. She didn't fully understand why he chose her.]
[font "tempus sans itc" They had been the closest friends throughout school, and she knew he missed his parents more than anything. She was just lucky enough to have caught his attention. She pointed to a chair and smiled a bit. [#FFB6C1 "Sit, and start talking love"] she said lightly, as she leaned back wrapping her arms around herself. The fresh air felt amazing blowing though the room.]

[font "tempus sans itc" Luthrix let out a small sigh. Being back in school was something he had been looking forward too. That was until Morgan and her little followers came up behind him, and started taunting him. [#ff00ff "Come on little boy, why won't you even look at us? What are you? A God damn freak?"] she cooed. The other girls started calling him names as well, and he did his best to turn a deaf ear to them. Sometimes it was harder to do, than other times. Right now he couldn't really do anything, and he knew that. He could yell at a female.]
[font "tempus sans itc" His mother would roll around in her grave if that ever happened. He had been raised to treat women with respect, even if they treated him like that. He was about to finally say something, when a girl from his house walked over, poured the pumpkin juice on her head, and spoke. [b "I think the juice suits you. And honestly aren't we a little old to be toying with people like this?"] Luthrix was slightly surprised at that, but he couldn't help but smile a bit. Morgan's eyes narrowed.]
[font "tempus sans itc" [#ff00ff "You are going to pay for this Serena!"] she snapped. The dark haired female didn't seem to mind. Morgan huffed and turned on her heel and stalked off. The other's followed behind her, and the male broke out into a smile. [#0075D0 "Bloody hell, that was amazing. Thank you for that.."] he said softly, his thick Irish accent showing. That's one thing he hated about himself, he had a really thick accent, and people sometimes couldn't really understand him. He reached up and rubbed the back of his neck looking down.]
[font "tempus sans itc" He didn't really understand why he had a hard time talking to females. The only woman that he opened up to was his mother, and since she had died a couple of months ago, he really didn't have anyone else to talk too. Maybe this female would help. He looked up towards her, and slid down a little bit. [#0075D0 "Sorry for being slightly rude.. Take a seat. I'm Luthrix by the way, and thank you for saving me. I couldn't really do anything, because of her being a female"] he said with a sheepish smile, a slight blush coming to his cheeks.]
[font "tempus sans itc" He had seen this woman around before, and he never really had the chance to get to know her. Maybe things would be different this school year. Maybe this time he'll be able to open up, and focus on making friends instead of being so shut down. He cleared his throat and started talking again. [#0075D0 "What's this I hear about a Tournament? People are talking about how it was banned years ago, but it's coming back? If you don't know anything about it, it's okay"] he said as he turned his eyes down to his plate.]
[font "tempus sans itc" He reached for a slice of toast and the jam. He then spread the jam onto the bread, took a bite and let the silence wash over them. He didn't like how he was so nervous, but he did feel slightly comfortable around this female. Today was going to be interesting to say the least.]
It had been twenty-one years since the war had been fought and since it had been won. He like the other children of the main heroes had gone to school or were still in for their last year or so. And everything seemed to be quiet and calm. But in the young man's opinion it was almost too calm and like something was around the corner and bound to come up. One Edward (Teddy) Remus Lupin would be damned if he spoke of his thoughts to everyone. There was only one he trusted enough to let in fully and completely. Only one who had had even spoken these fears to. And she had been first his best friend and now that old enough the two were dating. Had been since he was sixteen and she was fifteen. Victorie Weasley had always been the one that he trusted and he would not trade her for anything or anyone.
All of that was going through his head and as a result, Teddy was not minding his hair or the fact that is had changed from it's natural brown to a fiery red that proved he was deep in thought. A habit or circumstance that seemed more likely than not as of late. For both he and Vic had been asked to become the current youngest professors of the school (Hogwarts) that they both had attended. Oh and to top things off, the Triwizard which had been banned when Victorie's uncles and his godfather had been at school. For some godforsaken reason the Ministry thought it would be a good idea to revive the tasks.
Lightly he knocked on the door and slowly pushed it open as it had been open the briefest of cracks. And instead of going in fully, Teddy just leaned upon the doorframe and let brown eyes fall on the beauty of the blonde young woman within the room. Well the office, her office. School had been back in school for about a week and the adjustments were interesting to say the very least. Sometimes he forgot they were no longer students. [#f1be0e "Sorry to bother you, Professor Weasley. But I wanted to be able to talk to you a bit.. Mostly about how it feels to be professors at our old school.. But more so what you think about them bringing back the Triwizard when we KNOW the stories of what had happened before. I mean I know we can join if we want.. But I just think something os coming."] He knew getting to the point would be for the best as she NEVER liked it when he was indirect or beat around the bush. Besides even had he, Victorie knew him better than anyone. She would have known the lie or indirectness and called him straight out on it. A trait he both loved and hated about the young woman depending on the circumstances and the situations.

Another year at school and another year the girl would have preferred to pretty much be on her own. It was normal and something she was good at. Her parents had died..no had been killed when she was about four and so her memories of them were fading. All she knew was what she was told and that was that they died as heroes and to keep peace that had come after the way. That was all fine and good, but she WANTED her mum and dad.. She didn't want to be another orphan who people looked at and pitied. Who people whispered about. And yet that seemed to be the case.
Her mind was wandering as always as she sat at the long table beneath the blue and bronze that were the colours of her house. It was still early and school had been back for about a week which meant everyone was still getting used to being back. Most the professors gor on them saying that they should be up and ready to be back. And then their were others who were a few years older, new like professors Lupin and Weasley who were relaxed and got where the students were coming from. So Serena could say she really did at least admire them.
Giggling and taunting broke through the silence or rather the quiet hum of them morning. And blue eyes came up to look down at the other end of the table. Morgan and her little clique seemed to find a new toy for the morning, a boy she had seen around often enough but never dared to talk to. It was the cackles and the words of being a freak that had the raven haired girl on her feet with a goblet of pumpkin juice in her hand. Silently she came up behind Morgan and poured it over her head. [b "I think the juice suits you. And honestly aren't we a little old to be toying with people like this?"] She asked with a smirk before turning to the boy and giving a weak smile as the other three girls had rushed off with on very pissed off Morgan shouting threats over her shoulder.
[b "Sorry...usually I'm their toy...I just couldn't sit and watch someone else endure those twits."] Serena said quietly.
