A quest for mystical creatures.
« on: December 14, 2003, 07:48:32 AM »

The wizarding world is in chaos, all the magical creatures are dying out and many species have been lost. A group of Hogwarts students must set out and discover the cause all evidence leads to africa. Only five students have been given permission to go, but a few may sneak along. Crystalis is to be the leader because her fiancee was given the task by the ministry but she needs wpeople with knowledge of mystical creatures, so who will come on an adventure to all the corners of the earth....

Stormy saw the advert for the quest and rushed to the Hufflepuff common room to sign up. She writes up her admission scypt.
I, Susie Pricklewood, am 14 years of age and mature and responsible. I have dealt with an amazing amount of stress before, see my biograophy "The Life and Times of Stormymind" also "Magical Moi".
On a serious note, I have dealt with animals my whole life (most of them with teeth and the ability to breathe fire, also completely illegal). Magical creatures are my passion and I wish to have a job dealing with them. So vote for me, Susie Pricklewood to be numero deux in your quest!

Stormy hoped Crystalis had a sense of humour.

Lena saw stormy writing something. She read it, and then asked, 'What's that for?' pointing at the letter.
Stormy looked at her. 'It's a letter to Crystalis, she's starting a quest to search for magical creatures! Why don't you join? You'd be good, seeing as you can talk to snakes and all that.'
Angelina nodded. 'You're not 14 though.' she noted. Stormy blushed. 'Who's gonna know the difference?' she asked. Lena laughed, got out a piece of parchment and wrote:
Hi, I'm Angelina Tonks and I would like to apply for your quest. I can talk to snakes if that is any use, but I'm not evil, I swear I'm not (even though one of my ancestors was Haricot). Please let me go on your quest, I love magical creatures, in fact, my mum works with them at the ministry! Do you know her? She's called Chastity Tonks. Anyway, please let me join! Pretty please!  
'Finished.' Lena announced, and showed stormy the letter.

"Quick! Send it off before someone else takes your place!" said Stormy, her and Angelina rush off to find Crystalis. They find her in the library researching animals.
"Hey, you! We've got another form!" shouts Stormy, people turnand make hushing noises.
Crystalis walks over, "Oh Stormy, I wanted to tell you, you've been accpeted."
"Really, oh yeah! Round the world here I come!" Stormy did a little victory dance.
"Erm.. here you go." said Angelina passing,over the form.

Kelpie saw all of this happening, and it interested her alot so she decided to place an application.

I, Kelpie, would like to join your expedition to Africa about magical creatures. I went to Africa when I was small, actually only six months, but I've been! If you didn't know, there is an animal which is called a kelpie. My parents named my after it. It's definition is: This British and Irish water demon can take various shapes, though it most often appears as a horse with bulrushes for a mane. Having lured the unwary on to its back, it will dive straight to the bottom of its river or lake and devour the rider, letting the entrails float to the surface. The correct means to overcome a kelpie is to get a bridle over its head with a Placement Charm, which renders it docile and unthreatening. The world's largest kelpie is found in Loch Ness, Scotland. Its favourite form is that of a sea serpent (see below). International Confederation of Wizard observers realised that they were not dealing with a true serpent when they saw it turn into an otter on the approach of a team of Muggle investigators and then transform back into a serpent when the coast was clear. The kelpie is rated: Dangerous / requires specialist knowledge / skilled wizard may handle.

Ok, so that might not really want to make you want to take me, but it shows that I don't mind doing research. Actually, I think that the definition is slightly wrong, because I have a trained pet kelpie, and she's never eaten anyone, and is extremely loving. I trained her myself. So there I guess I'm trying to say is I'm good with animals, a good thing for the trip.
I know this application doesn't make you want to take me on the trip, but I think I'd really be good with it, and if you took me, I'm sure you wouldn't regret it. I'd put a lot of effort into doing a good job. Plus, I'm a good friend (actually one of their best friends) of Stormy, who I know is going, and Angelina who applyed as well, so there would be no problems getting along with people.
Thank you for reading this pathetic note,
Kelpie


Kelpie didn't think she had done a good job, but she had never been good at writting letters, and it wasn't about to change. At least she hadn't lied about anything, that was a start.
Kelpie found Crystalis in the library, and handed her the note, dearing to slip in a smile.

I bend down to write my letter to Kelpie.
Kelpie, Although your admission was very interesting I feel you have not fully described your experience with magical creatures. I would be very obliged if you would rewrite your admission and describe your experiences and not your name. I do know how to stop a Kelpie, most people who have read Magical Beasts and Where to Find Them do. Thank you. Crystalis.

The real  crystalis reads the applications and wishes her brother would not hack onto her account, although some of it was true.
She knows what a pain tonks can be when she gets out of hand and wonders who on earth can I control these people, but then she remembers the magical parchment she was given giving her ultimate power, meaning people cannot rise from the dead a million times or go completely out of hand. They can only control their own characters and destiny. She decides to accept them all because they all have a vast amounts of experience in this area however she still needs two more people to go on the quest otherwise they will be doomed to failure. So she goes and thanks Kelpie for her application and tells her not to put herself down as much.

(ooc naughty brother!)
Stormy rushes to her friends, "Have you been accepted?" she asks.
"Yes!" they shreek, all the girls giggle and  rush up to pack.
Stormy threw some clothes into her trunk, along with toiletries, broom, make up, books, potions, wand and other strange objects.
She grabbs a strange gem and throws it in too along with her diary. This quest is going to be fun, she thought.

"If you read the note, you'll understand."said crystalis
Kelpie quickly flicked open the letter, and read it.
"I put all the stuff about the name just for interesting information, plus I had to look it up, so I thought you might guess that I'm willing to go through whole books, just for an application. But the whole thing tells you about how kelpie's our quite dangerous animals, that kind of stuff, and I told you about my pet. I managed to train a kelpie, not only train, but domesticate (can you say that?) her. I guess I was showing that I have experience with dangerous animals, and I managed, if I'm not too bold to say, I managed to do quite a good job.

"Come on, Kelpie! We have to pack!" cried Stormy and she grabbed her friend and pulled her away.
"But, she said..." Kelpie started.
"Who cares what she said, your in!" said Lena.
"Man, its going to be so good!" laughed stormy.
"You two! This is a serious mission, people could get hurt, we need to be serious." said Kelpie.
"We know." said Stormy hurt, "But we can still enjoy it..."
"No, we have to be..." started Kelpie.
"Life isn't just in black and white, kelpie." said Lena wisely.

Stormy looked at her. 'Since when have you said wise things like that?' she asked in amazement.
'Since now.' Lena said huffily. 'We need two more people though.'
Kelpie looked around the common room, then she shouted. 'Anyone want to go on a quest?'

"Oh come on Kelpie, we need people who are good with animals, not Danni!" cried Stormy.
"Well he could come, he has a wide range of knowledge and hes experienced." Begged Kelpie.
"He knows nothing of animals, especially magical ones!" said Stormy annoyed.
"She's right." said Lena, "He's just not qualified."
"He can still try!" argued Kelpie.
"Have you even asked him whether he wants to come, you may be his girlfriend but your not his boss!" Stormy had a point.
"Ofcourse he wants to go! Who wouldn't?" Kelpie snorted.
"Kelpie! I can't believe you didn't ask him!" cried Lena.
"I will." said Kelpie.

(since when have I been so obssesed with Danny?)

"You know, I'm not completely sure if she let me. She didn't seem so keen of me, crystalis."said Kelpie
"Well, why wouldn't she want you?"said Stormy
"I don't know. I have had experience. Look at Kelpie Jr. my kelpie. She's really nice, and they're supposed to be man eating creatures. I thought she might think that was good for this particcular thing, but she didn't really seem impressed...I don't think she likes me."said Kelpie

(since now  ;D )
"Look Kelpie, I hate to seem insensitive but your in, she excepted you and we do have more important matters to think about. We need two more candidates or the quest shall fail before it even started!" Stormy said.
"I know, I know!" muttered Kelpie, "But who? Who will join?"
"I have no idea!" exclaimed Lena, "Oh no! We're doomed to failure."
"Don't be daft!" snapped Stormy, "You over exaggerating now."
"But we are!" moaned Lena.
"Oh come on, there must be someone." Kelpie half pleaded.

Angelina began to write with her wand.
There is a quest to save the magical creatures of the world - two more questees needed.
The advert went around the room, and then travelled somewhere else.
'Since when was 'Questees' a word?' stormy asked.
'Since when I wrote it up there.' Angelina replied. 'I hope somebody applicates soon.'
''Applicates'? What next? Pigs flying?'

"Hey, I have an idea! That's good for me right? That was a joke, and I don't plan on you making fun of me. You do, I kill you. See, I'm rhyming. Anyway, back to the point. What if I asked Cerberus to join? Do you think she would? She's allways seemed so nice to me, I'll go ask."said Kelpie, and then she walked off

'Did we even get the chance to give our opinion?' Lena asked stormy.
'Nah.' stormy shook her head. 'What were you gonna say?' she asked.
'Okay.'
'So it doesn't really matter.'
'I guess not. So, if Cerberus says yes, then we need one more person.'
'That's right.'
'Oh.'
'What?'
'Nothing.'

Stormy paced her room, she wanted the quest to begin and soon! For three days she had had to stay at school and do boring work when she could be saving magical creatures and exploring the world. She was so bored!

But Kelpie never even got to Cerberus. She was walking down a deserted corridor, and a hand grabbed her. It coverdered her mouth, so when she tried to scream for help, no one could hear it. And then it all went black...

Stormy burst in.
"Look! I hate to be rude but if this quest  doesn't start soon, I'm out!" Stormy cried.
"It's ok," soothed the girl, "Get your stuff and the others and we'll be gone within the hour."
"OK." said Stormy and she ran off.

Stormy, Crystalis and Lena waited by the horseless carriage.
"If she's not here in ten minutes, we're going without her, "said Crystalis, "We don't have time for this!"
"Yeah, enough times been wasted and this quest is important!" huffed Stormy

Suddenly Lena fell to the floor moaning, her eyes turned black and a evil voice shouted,
"abandon this quest or your friend will die!"
then lenas eyes returned to their normal colour. She lay down looking bemused and got up rubbing her temples, she said,
"oh well she's not here lets go"...

"Not here? Let's go? Do you have any idea what even happened?"asked Crystalis
"No, actually, not really."said Angelina
"Your eyes went all black, and you talked funny."said Crystalis
"I remember when you did something like this. But you'd been evil then, and you didn't do anything here."said Stromy

'Yeah, I can remember that clearly. But this time I was just stood up one minute, and laid down the next. So, Kelpie's not here. Should we go then?' Lena asked.
'We're not going.' Crystalis told them.
'What? Why not?' stormy asked, frustrated.
'You heard what Angelina said, or whoever it was.'
'What did I say?' Lena asked.
'Well, basically, you said that Kelpie would die if we went.' stormy explained.
Angelina groaned. 'Oh, poo this.' she said. 'Let's just accio her. After three. One, two - '
'Accio her?'
'Yeah, it's that summoning charm remember?'
'Will it work?'
'I dunno, if we try it then we'll see. So, after 3, 1, 2, 3! Accio Kelpie!' All three of them said the last part, and Kelpie came zooming towards them. 'What the?' she began, but stormy started shouted. 'Say thankyou then! We just saved your flippin' life!'

"Erm.. thank you?" tried Kelpie.
"Better, now lets go!" Stormy said, she was very fed up.
The four girls piled into a carriage and rode off.
"You do realise this quest may change our lives?" Kelpie asked.
"Yes," said Stormy, "You do realise this quest gets us out of school?"
"Yes!" laughed Lena.
Crystalis smiled grimly, let them be happy, for now.........

Lena stared at Stormy.
"Shes thinking of old magic!" gasped Lenas voice in Stormys head.
"Hey get out of my head!" grumbled Stormy, not aloud though!
"Shes thinking of old magic! We know of old magic!" cried Lena.
"Thats our secret, we didn't even tell Kelpie about that!" Stormy said.
"We have to tell her, this is a serious mission." Lena scolded.
"Ok," said stormy, "I'll tell her tonight, when we're alone."

Crystalis was looking over some old magical scrolls trying to decipher them, when lena and stormy came up to her,
"We have to talk to you," said Lena "we can do old magic."
"I thought you might be able to there was all the evidence thats why I chose you." said stormy handing them the scrolls, "you can use these we'll need them."...
