Posted on Thursday, 25th of June, 2015 @ 3:27am by Professor Margaret (Maggie) MacAulay & Seventh Year Prefect (G) Jennifer Collins & Professor Penelope Fortescue & Third Year (G) Connor Franta & Professor Artimus Price & Professor Johnathan Heartseed & Third Year (S) Violet Price

Mission: Another School Year, Another ...
Location: Headmasters Office
Timeline: October 15th

Penelope sat in her office looking over an owl notifying her of two new transfer students that would be arriving shortly, she dispatched notes to the heads of houses to report to her office to welcome the new student.

Maggie read the note and sighed. More students? They seemed to have more than their share of new students arriving after the start of classes this year. It meant more work for her and the other professors to get the student up to speed.

She glanced at the clock on the wall and back to the note. At least she didn't have a 9 AM class today. She put away her scrolls and headed for the Headmistress' office.

Artimus walked into the office, a large smile on his face. "Good Morning, Professors." On his shoulder was Aramis, the far more groomed of the three white ravens. This was peculiar because the aggressive Raven, Athos, was the one that was commonly seen in that position. Artimus, knowing his daughter was one of the students, decided to bring her favorite of the birds to the meeting. A special treat for the child. "How are you all this morning?"

"Good morning, Professor Price," Maggie said politely. She still didn't like the idea of the man actually being a professor at Hogwarts, but since there was nothing she could do about it, she chose not to antagonize the man.

Heartseed entered and took a deep breath, "Lovely day, isn't it, so bright and sunny. Must make you perfectly miserable, MR. Price." quipped Johnathan, who still refused to acknowledge Price as his peer.

"Actually, Heartseed. Today is such a good day that even you can't ruin it for me." He smirked as he leaned back in his chair.

"I'll just have to work harder then, fine boy you have, though, hope the girl can grow up to have her own mind as well." quipped Heartseed.

At 9:00 exactly there was a knock on the door.

Connor Stood on the other side of the door. Waiting for the response from the other side.

Violet stood a few feet away from Connor, on his left, and stood there silently. However, a smiled was on her face. A smile that seemed to be there for her entire trip from Beaxbaton's Academy. The little girl was pleased to be at Hogwarts, even more so now that she was closer to her older brother and father. She looked down at her silver and black spotted cat and giggled. "We're going to have so much fun, Madam Bonbon." The cat only responded with a meow and remained seated by her side, her tail waved slowly side to side.

The door opened to Professor Fortescue's office. "Come in, children," Maggie said. "We've been expecting you."

Violet smiled and curtsied in her place. "Thank you, Professor." She then continued from the hallway and into the room, her cat at her side. She smiled brightly as she saw her father and Aramis perched on his shoulder.

She kept to her lady like posture and stopped in front of the Head Mistress's Desk, curtsying again and bowing her head a bit as her cat, Madam Bonbon bowed at her side. "Violet Price, Head Mistresses. I am honored to be at this school and in your presence." Violet knew very well about the new head mistress of the school. Her father, of course, informed her of who she was and exactly how much of a thorn in her side she had become. Regardless of her feelings she still maintained a proper manner so as not to ruin her The Beauxbatons Academy of Magic Belle Sorciere title.

Connor nodded to Penelope, then walked behind Violet to stand next to her at the Head Mistresses desk. "Connor Franta, Head Mistresses." It was short and straight to the point. Perfect. His Father would be happy that he keeps to his status, but his mother would be happier to know hes not as bad as most of his status.

"Welcome to Hogwarts," Maggie said. "All your scrolls appear to be in order." She nodded to Reginald and Jennifer. "This is Mister Price and Miss Collins. They are Head Boy and Head Girl this year. After your meeting with us, they will take you on a tour of the school and then lead you to your house dorms to selttle in."

"Hi," Jen said, giving both students a friendly smile.

"And these are the Heads of House. Professor Price is over Slytherin, Professor Heartseed is over Ravenclaw, Professor Merryweather is over Hufflepuff and I am Professor MacAulay, head of Gryffindor."

"Professors." Violet said with a smile as she curtsied to the group, than turning to Jen and Reg. She curtsied to Jen, but didn't to her brother. Violet only gave him a look and smirked slightly as she rolled her eyes and giggled.

Reginald let out a sigh, crossing his arms over his chest and looking over to Jen. "This is a bad idea." He whispered, referring to his sister being at Hogwarts. He knew the kind of trouble she would cause and the dangers that came with her

"Tell me about it later," she whispered back. "I don't think the professors have much of an option at this point."

Connor nodded to all around him, "Professors, Heads." he said turning to the head students. He then turned back to the Headmistress and wondered when he was going to be able to walk around by himself.

"As we have your transcripts from your former schools, we can place you in the house we believe is most appropriate or we can let the sorting hat choose, whichever you prefer," Maggie said.

"Whichever is the most fair for the other students." Connor turned to Maggie.

"Student." Violet corrected. Giving Conner a scoff as she looked away from towards the Deputy Headmistress. "I have no problem with whatever decision you make, Headmistress as long as it doesn't ruin my hair."

Reg shook his head and sighed, placing his palm to his face, finding his sister's vanity had increased a little since last he saw her.
