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!

Lucas is the loner type, he prefers to be alone rather than surrounded by swarms of people, he rarely picks fights but is often found in them and usually loses depending on who is opposing him. He is the independent type, enjoying his own company but he can work in a team although it would be against his will. Lucas’ fears consist of heights and spiders, often refusing to get on a broom or enter a room if there is a spider inside. He is civil with acquaintances but he doesn’t have any/many friends currently except from his brother and a few others in his house. Lucas’ ambition is to become an Auror like his father but is unsure to whether he will get there after attending the school. His attitude towards classes changes depending on what class it is and he is often seen as ignorant and a day dreamer.

Lucas is the youngest in his household, born and raised in Ireland but just before his 8th birthday the family moved to London to be closer to Kings Cross Station for when the boys got their acceptance letters. Before life at Hogwarts Lucas was told about the life of magic from a very young age, even though he was unable to cast it himself until he was 9. Lucas was always treat like the second child and his older brother seemed to be better at everything, so he was a very jealous child always seeking the attention he never got from his own parents. Lucas became a very disruptive child and within his first few weeks of attending Hogwarts received several detentions, mostly due to the fact that he never showed up to classes or detention itself. He isn’t the best in Flying Classes due to his fear of heights and he shows interest in the Dark Arts classes as well as Potions. He is usually found alone in the library or sitting by the lake just outside of the castle, probably reading a book or thinking. He tends not to start fights but somehow always says the wrong thing and gets himself involved anyway. His parents are often disappointed in his grades and attitude towards classes and often compare him to his brother, so Lucas tends to stay at the school during holidays and other occasions rather than return home like the other first year students. Lucas enjoys practicing his magic within school, trying his best to improve although he shows little interest.

Lucas ran down the narrow hallway, ignoring the rules that were as clear as day ‘No running in the halls’ but that was in the back of his mind, he had somewhere to be after all. He wasn’t aware of the time and of course he had slept in that morning, missing morning assembly and almost about to be late for his first class of the day, for a first year this was meant to be a usual situation but he didn’t need another detention on his record. Usually this hallway would have been overcrowded with other students, but the majority of them were probably in class. He sharply turned the corner and headed towards the potions classroom, no doubt he would still be late. “Just my luck.” He groaned to himself as he slowed his pace to a walk before stopping completely. “I made it.” Lucas gave a small sigh as he opened the door, hopefully he wouldn’t be at the centre of everyone’s attention as he entered but the potions professor would probably never let him forget it.
