Ch 5.3 || Dorms- Ravenclaw

Welp, guess I'm too smart to be in Slytherin, huh? I'm glad I have a friend here with me.

"So, at least I have one friend here." Pisces said.

"Yup, I really wish Sag and Lib were here too though."

"Me too."

"It's just too bad that they're idiots, unlike us."

He laughed at that. "If only they had the ability to think."

"If only." I grinned. There was a bunch of shouting from the Slytherin table, and I squinted to see what was going on. Seems like some sort of food fight. Uncivilized potatoes.

"Idiots, do they want to get in trouble?" said a voice from beside me. I turned and saw that it belonged to a boy around my age. His name was Virgo, I think. I remember a few people from the sorting.

"Hi! I'm Gemini, you're Virgo, let's be friends!" way to come across as a stalker.


"HI! And this is Pisces." I kicked Pisces under the table.

"Owww wha- Oh hi!"

"hey." Wow, he looked like he'd rather be anywhere else than here. Too bad, he's stuck here.


So, this girl and this boy, Gemini and Pisces, started talking to me, why can't they just leave me alone? If only I could take my book out without worrying about the many brainless idiots who will surely drop their food on it.

"So, what do you think they will teach us?" asked the Pisces dude. Must be muggle born.

"Well, in our year we will be doing basic charms and potions and stuff, we will probably learn to transfigure small things and the basic defensive spells-" Damn this girl won't stop talking.

"We just learn the basics as of now, the advanced stuff comes in later." I said, trying to save the poor boy's ears from bleeding out.

"Yup, that."

"Oh, thanks."

"No problemo!" exclaimed Gemini.

"Yea, no problem." I said quietly, trying to focus on my food.

Gemini and Pisces started kicking each other under the table, and it was pissing me off.

"Will you two stop acting like brainless chimps and eat your veggies?"

"I dun wan vegggggggie." Gem said in a baby voice.

"Too bad, eat it, they're good for you."

"No." And with that, she dumped all the veggies Pisces had sneaked onto her plate on my plate. "you eat, I no want."

"Hey!" I sighed and quickly finished my food, just in time for us to be led to our dorms. We went to this door with a bronze eagle-shaped knocker, and were told that we had to answer the riddle it asked to get it to open. Then the prefect demonstrated, and led us inside to our dorms. Great, I share with Pisces and the other boys in our year, Who's names I didn't bother listening to.


I shared a dorm with Virgo, Caelum, Volans and Fornax. I didn't really know the other three, but they seemed to be good friends, which left me with Virgo.



"Sooooo." Well, I'm awkward. Deal with it.

"I think imma go sleep." He said, lying down on his bed. I sighed and made my way to the common room with my potions book. Might as well get some reading done, amiright?

I sat on one of the many elegant couches, the whole room looked like the inside of a grand castle, which I suppose it was. I wonder if the other common rooms look like this. As I was halfway through the explanation of how to make a certain potion, someone tapped me from behind.

"You're Pisces right?" I looked behind me to see a boy my age, with reddish blond hair and green eyes. Volans.

"Yup, and you're Volans?" He grinned at me.

"Yes. I see you're doing some reading?"

"Just thought it would be good to be prepared. You never know."

"Fair enough."

"So, what are you doing here?"

"I was too excited to sleep. I mean, it's a school for magic. I thought magic was just some nonsense people made up to explain things science back then couldn't. And to think it was all real...."

"You must be a muggle born too." I said with a laugh.

"Uh huh, both my parents thought the letter was a prank!" We spent another hour or so talking, laughing, generally having fun, before we went back up to get some sleep before our first day.
