Inside the castle walls, students return to the familiar routine of the school year; 9am classes, and dorm room gossip, while outside the castle walls the world becomes more and more unpredictable. War is looming. Terror is lurking. Fear is waiting. And one man can not keep reality from breaching the walls... Now everyone is being pressured to pick sides...
Each year, it is the job of the Hogwarts Prefects and Head Students to plan and organize events around the school.
This Halloween, they have opted for a Haunted House experience on the grounds!
Upon exiting the castle, you will be greeted by a low lying fog, separating into a clear path
that leads you to a dilapidated house, with the trees of the Forbidden forest looming behind it.
Many horrors await you inside of the Haunted House of Horrors!
There is, of course, a catch! The Marauders (courtesy of the fact that James and Remus have been involved in the planning!)
have taken this opportunity to add a few extra tricks, treats, and scares to the house, so tread carefully within.
This is, optionally, a dice game to keep things exciting! More info will be provided.
Giant Pumpkin Carving!
It simply wouldn't be Halloween without Hagrid's giant pumpkins! This year, however, it's up to the students to get
involved in carving some pumpkins up. Battle through the fog and make your way to the Gamekeeper's Hut - you'll
recognize it for it's orange glow. All the tools and carving equpitment you need are waiting for you, so don't
miss your chance to create a pumpkin masterpiece!
Candy Costume Party!
Halloween requires costumes. It also requires sweets and candy. Therefore, it's only right we throw a candy costume party!
This year, Honeydukes are providing the treats - all of your familiar favorites and a few new, slightly bizarre ones
to try out.
Slugs, Bugs, Warts, and Bones, whether you want a Slimy Slug Sour, or a Freaky Finger Fruit Pop, Honeydukes
has provided everything your could ask for!
So put on your best costume and work up a sweet tooth, then join us in the Great Hall for a Sugar and Spice,
All Things Scary and Nice Candy Costume Dance!

nfo: See that sweet face and cute little dog? Well, it probably only lasted for the duration of that photo. That dog is probably dead now, or at least permanently disfigured. Georgina is bad to the bone and has always been a wicked child with a love of chaos. Her parents did nothing wrong to make her this way, it's just how she's always been. Georgie actually hates her parents because they keep trying to 'fix' her, but that's never going to happen.
friends: Friends? Surely you mean victims she can manipulate? Because that's really all she cares about. She's not interested in friends, per say, unless they're people that can help her in some way. If you can be of some benefit to her she'll be sweet to woo you, but she only wants you there because you're useful to her in some way.
nemies: Georgie has plenty of these even if she is only eleven years old. This girl was born bad to the core - her heart already a tainted black. She loves chaos and destruction, and enjoys the pain of others. At her age, she usually takes it out on some unfortunate animal. She's a bully and manipulative, and if you're in her bad books she'll find a way to make your life hell. (lock up your pets!)
overs: She's eleven. Eww! You pedo! What do you think she is? Well, give her a year or two at least and she'll probably find doing such things 'useful' to gain things she wants. But that's for another day!
elationships: Augustus Rookwood ~ You're my darling cousin, are you not? I'll probably just try and sweet talk you into getting me something I'm not allowed to have. I'm sure I can think up a few nasty rumors if you aren't nice to me. I'm lovely like that, you know. Angela Winters ~ Ew, a Gryffindork. Have you seen you? Haha you're so pathetic. I'm going to enjoy making your life hell for the next seven years. Hey, do you have a pet? @rose ~ What even are you? I mean... look at you! You're hilarious, and not in a laughing-with-you kind of way. I am so going to enjoy making your life hell, too. Hufflepuff's are pathetic creatures, anyway.

Unfortunately, he is? If you'd like to throw these two into a thread I'm sure he can get stuck on some sort of babysitting duty. He does live in Hogsmeade (helpful little place to live when there's about 4 adults and a 100 students) so he should be able to pop into Hogwarts for some odd reason, walk into her on a Hogs day out or meet her at the train station when she arrives back for start of year.
As for relationship I think he would secretly despise her but act otherwise to keep up his act. In ways he and his little couz are the same, they both have parents whom are trying to 'fix' them and have a certain disdain for muggles. However, they are very different as well, he might be a Death Eater but he doesn't make that common knowledge, not even to his eleven year old cousin an he's definitely not "bad to the bone". Also he's not very keen on unnecessary cruelty, so I think he wouldn't like it that Georgina hurts animals and might flip out. I think she could be a real thorn in his side.

Hang on... I think I might have possibly been getting mixed up... Connor was the cousin XD Whoops! But I supposed they'd be cousins in some form or another, since a lot of the old pureblood families are related somewhere along the lines. Since Georgina isn't from the main Parkinson line, she'd have older cousins who will eventually lead to Pansy Parkinson. So we could say has an older cousin who is the same age as Augustus who he's friends with, so like... somehow him and Georgie know each other through that route?

Yeaaaah, I was a bit confused at first, but went with it anyhow. XD But now that it's cleared up I'm comfortable with them knowing each other through her older cousin. However, I'm not seeing much of a thread between these two right now, so shall we postpone these two or do you have an idea?

I know they already have a thread going, but Colin and Georgina should have a duel at some point. She would kick his arse. He has too much pride and is too arrogant to admit that he knows about two duel-worthy spells.
