Chamber of Reception
250px-EhAc


Welcome to the Chamber of Reception! In 1998, this chamber was used as a temporary resting place for the bodies of those who fell in the Battle of Hogwarts.

This is where the first years wait before the Sorting ceremony. During the Welcoming Feast, students' owls and trunks are stored here.

She'd been ninety-six percent of her way back to Ravenclaw Tower when she had the genius idea of taking the outside shortcut in a thunderstorm, and now, she's huddled in a corner in the Chamber of Reception waiting to dry off so that she's warm enough to move. "Real smart move, Brynja," she mumbles to herself.

He, too, has been caught up in the storm, since it just decided to f-cking throw it down for some reason. He's drenched and he looks like a wet dog but at least there are fires burning in here, so Kevin walks in and relishes in the newfound warmth.

Brynja glances up at the sound of someone walking in and wonders how she didn't notice the fires, moving closer to the nearest fireplace. "If it makes you feel better, you aren't the only one," the young Norwegian says to the newcomer. She hadn't seen him before, but that was okay, she's always running into people.

He hears the voice before his sees the flash of blonde hair in the firelight, and it makes him jump. Once he realises it's just an equally soaked girl, he softens and says, "Gorgeous weather, isn't it?"

An instant feeling of guilt comes on when he jumps, but subsides when he seems to relax. "Wonderful," she agrees, jokingly, "I think I might prefer the snow in Norway, though. It's prettier, and it doesn't feel like hail most of the time."

His eyebrow quirks up at the mention of her country. "Norway, huh?" he asks. He's played the Norwegian team before. "Doesn't it snow all year round there?"

"It can actually get quite warm sometimes, but we sometimes get surprise snow in some of the warmer months when we aren't expecting it. I'm from Oslo, so, I think I got the best deal." Talking about home always gets her spirits up. "It was the craziest place on earth when we won the World Cup a couple years ago, though. Massive party. My cousin's best friend played as Beater for them when they won. But I think I prefer it when it's quieter."

He remembers that match vividly - he'd been there, in the stands next to his dad. Then she mentions her cousin's friend and an eyebrow quirks. "Who's, er - who's your cousin's mate?" he asks, trying to be subtle but missing the mark totally.

"Pyrrha Rasmussen," Brynja replies, "It was pretty cool. I got to watch their Seeker a lot, so I think that's helped. Still busted my hand in the game against Hufflepuff yesterday, though."

He recognises the name, but he's never spoken to her or anything so he lets it drop. Then he looks at her hand and frowns at the bandage, wound tightly around her fingers. "Damn," he says. "Runaway bludger?"

"Yeah," she nods, "probably not helped by the fact one of my teammates got hit and took me and my captain out in the process, so I probably landed on my hand, too. I think I've had worse, though."

He winces, knowing enough about Quidditch injuries to write a book on it. "I'm guessing you lost the match, then?" he tries, smiling gently.

"We did. But there wasn't much to be done from the ground with a broken hand," She easily laughs it off; it's only if she'd lost to Gryffindor that there'd be some real issues, because, you know - Tori. "I'm Brynja, by the way, Brynja Skovgaard. Fifth year, Ravenclaw."

Glad to meet another one of his year, he perks up. "I'm Kevin," he says. "Fifthie also. I'm a lion, though - what are they called? Gryffindor?" His face goes pink. "I still can't remember the house names."

"Nice to meet you, Kevin. Are you new? I was this time last year." At his mention of the houses she nods in confirmation. "Yeah, it's Gryffindor. No need to worry about the Houses though, they're...weirdly named, aren't they?"

"Yeah, I'm new," he nods, playing with his hoodie strings. His hair is thankfully starting to dry. "Aren't they based on like - last names or sommat? Hufflepuff is funny." He allows himself a giggle. "Hufflepuff."

"I mean, what did we expect from a school called Hogwarts? The last names of the founders, or something like that. Kinda feel bad for them. Especially that Slytherin dude. Can you imagine the innuendos people would make these days?"

He smirks, shaking his head in amusement. "Poor guy." Then his brow furrows in consideration. "People keep saying Slytherins are dickheads, but I met one the other day and he was awesome. A bit - loud, maybe, but still awesome."

"One of my best friends is a Slytherin. But it's just a stereotype 'cause of the Death Eaters and all that, I'm guessing. I bet if you looked hard enough you'd find a jerk Hufflepuff, for sure." The concept is funny, she lets herself smile. "There's a lot of "I-know-everything-so-I'm-better-than-you" jerks in Ravenclaw, too."

The concept of houses is still weird to him, so he voices it, as he sees no reason to be afraid. "There were no, like, houses at my old school. Just teams. No weird names."

"I was homeschooled until last year, so it was quite a lot of getting used to, I guess. Then again, so was getting used to having other people around in the first place." She shifts a little so she's sat more comfortably. "This school is just kinda weird, but my parents said Durmstrang was too shady."

"Durmstrang... are they Slavic?" he asks, having recognised the name. He's sure he's played people from there too.

"They're bastards at Quidditch," he mutters, then freezes when he realises what he's said. Backtracking, he stutters and says, "Apparently. That's what I've heard."

The backtrack doesn't fool her but she can tell he doesn't want to talk about it so leaves that be. "Really? What do they do?"

"I read in a Quidditch magazine that they aim bludgers for people's shoulders, to like, dislocate them," he says, grimacing at the memory. "Or people in the crowd try and fix matches by charming the balls and stuff. Nice."

"Thank god, eh?" he laughs, raising his hands up to a fire to warm them. The rain's coming down harder outside, hitting the ground like bullets. "Still, it'd get me out of doing essays. I've got a foot-long one due in on something about love potions and I really just can't be arsed."

"Oh, I've finished mine if you want to borrow it? I know how it feels to just want to lie down and do nothing with the rest of your life. But I can't afford to get into any more trouble, I've already gotten a teacher fired this year." The blonde laughs. "Second year in a row I've gotten in a row with a teacher on the first day."

He skips over her offer, simply because everyone in this school seems to be uncomfortably generous, and lets out a sudden sharp laugh at the mention of the teacher. "You were part of that?" he grins. "Vic was saying the other day how she helped get a professor fired. Or Tori. I think she prefers to be called Tori." He shakes his head like he can reroute his thought path and smirks. "How awesome."

He nods, thrusting his hands into his pockets. "Everyone seems nice, so far. Makes a nice change." Wanting to leave it there, he looks back at the downpour through the windows and says, "Is there a charm for making an umbrella?"

"Good point," he hums, nodding. "Right, well, I'm gonna make a dash for the common room. Say hi to Vic - Tori, I mean, Tori - if you see her." He turns to go then freezes, realising his rudeness. "Unless you're coming too?"
