Wiilow piled her plate high with lumpy mashed potatoes and felt a delicious thrill of excitement, "I hope you are a chaser, from what I hear hufflepuff could do with some changes in its team." Willow whispered, praying no one in the team was nearby.
"yeah, it would so great to thrash slytherin, you ever played a position?" asked Angelina.
"At my last school I was a beater!" said Willow excitedly.
Peoples eyebrows rose, trying to imagine Willows tiny frame carrying a bat.
"Cool!" said Angelina.
"I think we should make a poster for the game, you know to annoy the slytherins, we could like draw a big lion and put GO GRIFFINDOR on it, ooh or a lion eating a snake, you know like enchant it!" Willow and Angelina rushed away from the table to go find willows painting set.
An hour later, they beamed down throught paint framed eyes at their "masterpiece". A lion with a serpant writhing under its left paw, roared silently and the waords "Go Griffindor" and " Slaughter Slytherin" faded in and out repetedly.
"Its beautiful." sniffed Wilow.
High ho! High ho! Off to boarding school I go.... The joys of life. Woopee.

Angelina almost cried. "We made it! Wow, it looks so good!" she then looked at her hands and uniform. "So let's get washed up and put the poster somewhere for safekeeping!" Willow nodded excitedly, and they hid the poster in Angelina's trunk before making their way to the bathroom to get cleaned up.

That Sunday (the first Sunday at Hogwarts for Willow), the match between Gryffindor and Slytherin began. Angelina and Willow had the poster rolled up between them, waiting for the opportune moment for them to lift up the banner to encouage the Gryffindors and annoy the Slytherins. Gryffindor had scored already, but Slytherin had yet to get ten points for their team. One of the Slytherin chasers had the Quaffle and was racing towards the goals. This was their chance. Angelina and Willow looked at each other and grinned evilly, grabbed the poster and levitated it into the air as it unrolled (neither were tall enough to hold it from the top without being able to show the whole poster). The bright flash of colour distracted the Slytherin and a Gryffindor chaser snatched the Quaffle from him. Angelina and Willow high-fived each other whilst the Slytherins looked on in fury. In fact, the Slytherin beaters looked absolutely furious at them, but neither had noticed due to the fact that they were now watching in delight as the poster lion made the snake do a little dance.

[OOC: Is it just me, or should this thread be in the Great Hall? I think I'll go ask Ping if I should move it. Pardon my moderatorial newbie-ness.]

Before Sirius could speak, however, Shelly made a noise halfway between a squeak and a scream and glanced out the window. The match had started, and she wasn't even there! She hadn't missed a Quidditch game since her third year when she had been in the hospital wing (some residual effects from a duel she had had with a Ravenclaw sixth year.) Shelly grabbed Sirius by the hand and dashed off, down the stairs, and out the door. She pushed Sirius up the stairs until she found the last two chairs available in the Gryffindor stands, and sat down to watch the match. Gryffindor were now twenty points up and Shelly let out a whoop of excitement as the new Gryffindor Keeper pulled a fantastic save. The team hadn't quite been the same since Shelly was kicked off, but, Shelly grudgingly admitted, they had managed to find a very good replacement.

Shelly glanced at Sirius and tried to read the look on his face. Was he angry at being violently shoved up the steps? Or merely concentrating very hard on the match? Shelly put the matter out of her mind and watched as a bludger nearly unseated the Slytherin seeker.
The quantity of consonants in the English language is constant. If omitted in one place, they turn up in another. When a Bostonian "pahks" his "cah," the lost r's migrate southwest, causing a Texan to "warsh" his car and invest in "erl wells."

The bludger, after missing the seeker, headed straight for Angelina and Willow, who ducked when it zoomed past, barely missing them. Angelina could have sworn it had ripped some of her hair out. She then looked up at the poster, only to see a bludger-sized hole where the Lion's head had been.
"They ruined our poster! THEY RUINED OUR POSTER!" Angelina screamed. "I can't believe they ruined our poster!" She sat down and flicked her wand, and half of the poster flopped, whilst the other remained in the air. It looked like a torn flag blowing in the wind. Angelina huffed, folding her arms and Willow flicked her wand to make the poster drop into a pile at their feet. Angelina was angry and upset after putting so much effort into the poster, and Willow, unknowing to what happened when you talked to an upset and angry Angelina let her sulk in her chair.

Willow looked bitterly now, what she would do to have that slytherin within cursing distance, anger bubbled up inside her sending an angry blush to her cheeks.
"Stupid slytherins!" she cried, "Think they're all that!"
Another bludger whooshed towards her but she ducked in the nick of time, thinking it wiser to be quiet she scowled down into her lap.
"And griffindor takes the quaffle, that Katie really knows whats she's doing, oh but, oh good she dodges that quafles and oh yes SHE SCORES! 70-30 to GRIFFINDOR!"
In the end, griffindor won which was a huge relief to Willow because she didn't know what she would have done if those smug slytherins had. Wlaking back to the castle with Angelina, she silently fumed at the cheek of it. Was she not allowed to have her own say? Angrily she threw a spell at a nearby tree and embedded the words "SLYTHERIN STINK!" in its trunk, petty she knew but it helped with her anger.
"Oi, what do you think you're doing?" cried an angry and unpleasant voice, Willow and Angelina turned round in horror to come face to face with a large sixth former.
"Um." said Willow.

"We're just walking, that's what we're doing." Angelina informed him in a falsely cheerful voice. She recognised the wizard as one of the Slytherin beaters. He snorted.
"Oh yeah? Well how come your friend here just spelled a tree if you were "just walking"?" he asked. He talked very slowly and deliberately.
"Accidental flick of the wand." Angelina said, brushing off the comment easily. The older boy seemed to understand this, and they began to walk off.
"Wait a second - you two were the ones that had that poster!" he shouted after them, and began to walk towards them, his bulky body creating a large shadow over them. They gulped.
"Run." Angelina advised Willow, and they did.

"WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" cried the girls as the boy chased after them, his large lumpy (?!) figure closing in on them.
"Why are we shouting wa?" asked Willow.
Angelina shrugged as her legs sprinted on, "Dunno, it sounds good though."
"WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
As they ran, they were hidden by the gentle thickening of tres and the slight mist around them, the boy seemed to have disappeared and so they stopped to take a breath.
"Where...he...go?" panted Willow.
"where .. we .. go?" cried Angelina through gasps.
They both looked at eachother in horror.
"This looks like..."
"But it can't be..?"
"Surely we wouldn't be so...?"
"I think we're in THE FORBIDDEN FOREST!"
"Oooh, I was thinking the same, snap and jinx!"
"Angelina?"
"yes......"
"Shut up before I make you."
High ho! High ho! Off to boarding school I go.... The joys of life. Woopee.

Angelina stuck her tongue out, but quickly withdrew it and jumped at the sound of snapping twigs. She looked at Willow, wide-eyed. "What was that?"
Both looked around them, scared, but in the end Angelina kept turning around and ended up looking like a dog chasing its tail. She stood still, and started wobbling.
"Woah, I'm dizzy." she staggered over to a tree and put her hand on it. Several fairy-like creatured appeared from somewhere out of the tree and Angelina looked at them happily. "Hey, it's a fairy! Oh no." she said when she realised that it was covered in fur. "Doxy. DOXY! RUN! RUN LIKE YOU NEVER HAVE BEFORE!" she shouted at Willow and started running in a wobbly line, still dizzy. "SAVE YOURSELF! GO WITHOUT ME! I'LL MAKE IT MYSELF, OR NOT!" Willow was quite away ahead of her, and Angelina was panicking. "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" she cried, whilst running. After all, it seemed like the most logical thing to do.

Willow cursed as she tripped over, tearing her new robes, stumbling up she realised she'd dropped her wand.
"My wand! My wand!" she cried as Angelina ran past going "WAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
She heard a snigger and looked up with growing dread to see a doxy grasping her wand.
"Oh no! Oh.. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" she cried as she ran, dodging the hot pink sparks that erupted from the armed doxy.
Nearby a tree caught fire and she had to swerve to miss the think black puddles the crazy doxy was creating with her wand.
"Angeliiiiiiina! The doooooooooxys got my waaaaaaaaaaaaaaand!" she howled.
"Nooooooooo way!" she heard Angelina call back.
"Yeeeeeeeees way!" she shouted back.
Catching up, she grapped Angelina with her hand over the other girls mouth and hid behind a tree. Confused, the doxy stayed for a moment making cute "Er!" sounds then Wilow [pounced.
It was stronger than it looked as she wrestled with the maniacal monster, and her wnad came to close to her face several times.
"Angelina freeze it!" she cried.
High ho! High ho! Off to boarding school I go.... The joys of life. Woopee.

"Impedimenta!" Angelina yelled, freezing the doxy. Willow retrieved her wand from the doxy, and they began to try and trace their steps backwards and avoid other doxies at the same time. Unfortunately, they ended up deeer in the forest, where it was more dense and they could barely see a couple of metres in front of them.
"Whadda we do? Whadda we do?" Angelina slurred in a high pitched, panicky voice. "We're lost, we're lost and it's almost dark - "
"It's barely past 11 in the morning." Willow said exasperatedly.
"We're lost, we're lost and it's almost lunchtime!" Angelina said, even more worried than before. "And it was Tortilla Saturday! TORILLA SATURDAY!" she fell to her knees, head in her hands. "The food ... Think of the food ... " she shook her head. "No!" she shouted, and stood up, whilst Willow regarded her with amusement. "We must fight the dangers of the forest and prevail. WE WILL PREVAIL!" she walked determinedly forwards, and Willow stupidly followed her.

What seemed to be hours later, Willow said: "I think we're lost."
Angelina shook her head. "We're not lost. It's just the rest of the world that doesn't know where we are." Willow shrugged.
"Let me find the way. Point me." she said, and watched her wand point to the right. "Hogwarts is in the north, isn't it?" Angelina shrugged and they walked down an imaginary walkway to the right of them.

"Are we nearly there yet?"
"No."
"Are we nearly there yet?"
"No."
"Are we.."
"No, we are not, we don't even know where we are meant to be! We are lost, lost!!! And my favourite necklace just broke." Willow snapped and then started to whimper, it had been such a lovely necklace...
Angelina put an hand on her shoulder, "Its OK, I feel your loss, I too an suffering. Saturdays just aren't the same without tortillas."
She let out a sob and mumbled something about tortillas.
Willow lifted her head from her hands and then thrust herself into a dramatic pose, in a loud heroic voice she cried, "Do not fear we shall prevail! Where ever there is darkness, we shall illuminate it! Where ever sadness we shall make ourselves giddy with these lovely red mushrooms that grow beneeath our very feet and where ever hunger we shall nibble upon the every flavoured beans I have in my pocket! Nothing can beat us Huffies!"
Angelina stood there admiring her until Willows pants fall down.
"Willow, you're..."
Willow turned pink and pulled tham back up, "That does not matter, we shall still prevail!"
"About those beans..."
"Yes?"
"Can I have some?"
High ho! High ho! Off to boarding school I go.... The joys of life. Woopee.

"Not yet. Not until we are starved, and our ribs are sticking out real bad." Willow said in a condescending tone.
"Awww!" Angelina moaned. She felt her ribs, and smiled smugly. "I'm halfway there." she muttered as they carried on walking and checking their direction every so often. The trees were starting to spread out more, maing the two witches happier. Even if they didn't arrive near Hogwarts, they were still near to a clearing of some sort.
"Let's play I spy!" Angelina suddenly shouted, and Willow groaned. "You go first!" Angelina ordered Willow.
"I spy with my little eye ... " she said with a bored voice, and looked around. " ... something beginning with "T""
"Turtle? Tortoise? Tarantula? Troll? Tinkerbell?" Angelina guessed, her words flying off of her tongue at 100mph. Willow sighed.
"Come on Angelina, this one's really easy." Angelina stopped for a moment.
"So it's not a turtle, a tortoise, a tarantula, a troll or a tinkerbell?" she asked, counting them on her fingers. Willow shook her head no.
"What about a ton-tongue toffee? A normal toffee? A tangerine? A tortilla?" she added the last one hopefully.
"No! Angelina, you're practically staring it in the face!" Willow said angrily, stamping her foot. Angelina's face lit up in realisation.
"A Twillow." she said smugly, and folded her arms. Willow looked at her in disbelief.
"A what!?"
"A Twillow." Angelina told her. "You said I was staring it in the face, and I was looking at you, so obviously you spied a Twillow." Willow laughed.
"No, it's not a twillow." Willow told her, but then saw Angelina's dejected face. "Good guess though." And Angelina's face brightened.
"It really was, wasn't it?" she then jumped and pointed at a tree. "Tree! Tree!"
Willow nodded. "Well done!" she said, clapping. Angelina looked at her angrily.
"Don't interrupt me." she snapped. "Tree! Tree! Tree! I swear, that tree just moved. Look! It moved again! MOVING TREE!"
Willow groaned. What now?

"Angelina, trees do not move." Willow soothed patronisingly (is that even a word?!).
"That one does!" Angelina said knowingly, and pointed.
"Where, which one?", Willow turned around on the spot, glancing around utterly confused, "Angelina, you're making it up... or seeing things..."
Angelina gasped, "I am not, look there it is again, oooo theres another one, I wonder if its female."
"TREES DO NOT HAVE GENDERS!" Willow bawled, "O my.. that tree just moved!"
"I told you so."
"Shut up."
"OK"
The girls watched on in horror as the trees closed in on them whilst chanting a strange mystical tune that probably derived from the druids, it went like this "Baaa ram ewe, baaaa ram ewe, sheep be true and sheep be ewe, baaaa ram ewe!"
"Its so terribly beautiful." whimpered Willow with tears in her eyes, "I wish I knew what it meant."
"Are they going to eat us?" Angelina whispered, well she tried to but it was more like loud talking.
"Aren't they herbivores?" asked Willow hopefully.
"Ew! No, that would be canibalism!" gasped Angelina shocked.
"Of course," sighed Willow, "How stupid of me."
