The Restricted Section

830px-RestrictedLibrary

The restricted section is an area in the Hogwarts Library which is closed off with rope.

Some of the library books in the restricted section are chained to the shelf, which shows they are probably of great value or a grave inherent danger to any who fail to take adequate precautions.

The books in the restricted section usually involve very mature subjects, such as the Dark Arts. They are closed off to the public for this reason. They may be studied by older students for Defense Against the Dark Arts.

To be granted access to the restricted section, please visit the librarian's office. If you are underage, please prepared with a teacher's note. If you are 17 or older, you must still visit the office to sign in to the Restricted Section.

Seeing that nothing bad's happened to him so far, Roshani follows, lighting her own wand too. Trailing her hand over one of the shelves, she says, "It looks like it's mostly books on the dark arts and potions and stuff."

His brow dips, confused. "B-but why would you lock all of that away?" It doesn't occur to him that there might be bad people out there who'd abuse that sort of stuff. "It-it's so interesting."

She pulls out a thin volume from one of the shelves and flips through it, considering. "Maybe they talk about dark magic like it's good," she says, then adds, in a stage whisper, "They might even have recipes for poisons!"

Okay, now that intrigues him. Half-rushing over to join her, he tries to ignore the thick layers of dust coating every surface and instead peers at the book in her arms. He has to go up onto his tiptoes to see properly. "That'd b-be so cool," he says, in an awed voice.

She tilts the book so he can see it better and flicks through slower, until she finds a page that looks promising. It's not a recipe for a poison though, it's- "Veritaserum? Have you heard of that before?" she asks.

"Truth-t-telling serum." The words leap out, instant, automatic. He's read about this in one of his dad's books. "Apparently it's the m-most effective one you c-can get."

"That doesn't seem like dark magic," she says, reassessing the section. "Maybe it's just for super advanced or important stuff, then."

His bank of knowledge kicks in, all the hours spent aimlessly reading flooding in. "I-I think it's the magic eq-equiv-eq-... version of a lie d-detector," he mumbles as he pulls another book from the shelf, holding it as if his fingers were pincers to avoid the dirt. "It's n-not trustworthy."

"That makes sense," she says, putting the book back where she found it and craning her neck to see the one he'd picked up.

Any fear of being interrupted by the librarian has abandoned him; he's far too enthralled in all of the information before him to care. Coming across a rickety old ladder that climbs to the top of one of the shelves, Andrew pulls himself up to the first few rungs, saying back to the girl, "C-catch me if I fall?" with a playful, shy smile.

She grins back, glad that she seems to be making another friend. "'Course," she answers, sounding excited. "This is so cool! I feel like I could spend all day in here and not get bored."

The ladder is slightly wobbly and it feels like it's leaning on one-hundred-year-old hinges, but Andrew leans across the shelf, reading each title off one-by-one. "T-there's nothing on d-dark magic yet."

She holds on to the ladder, a little worried by its wobbling, and notices the books chained onto the lower shelves. "Wait, there're books here that look like they're chained on the shelf!"

After her mini adventure with Florian (who she still doesn't know the name of) to Hogsmeade, she had gone here to see if there was any way in, like another secret passage. Noticing that the entrance is unlocked, she runs in while the librarian isn't looking. Seeing shadowy figures in the dark, she immediately assumes it's some monster. She brings out her wand and aims it at them, before realizing it's just two of her yearmates. Feeling embarrassed, she lowers her weapon. "I am so sorry." she says, "But also how are you in here?"

Having been in the library and seen the restricted section open, he made a mad dash, only to hear voices, and find Roshani, the adventure-girl and some random guy he's seen in class but not spoken to before. "Um. Roshani? You found a way in?" He turns to Zoe. "Girl-whose-name-I-forgot-to-ask? You too?" He also turns to Andrew and waves, "Hi. I'm Florian."

The sudden intrusion scares the living crap out of him; he slips from the ladder, finds himself dangling from the shelf and hanging there like something on a washing line. He'd drop but, like, he'd break both his ankles. But Florian waved and said hi, so he kind of needs to be polite back. "H-hello", he says - he'd wave but... maybe not. "Andrew."

"I was gonna come find you, promise," she says to Florian, and jumps when Andrew slips. Not sure what to do about it, but knowing she has to do something, she tries to maneuver the ladder so he can catch hold again.

She flinches when Andrew falls, but it looks like he's got it under control. Still, she casts a cushioning charm on the floor near the ladder, just in case he falls. "You can drop now if you can't hold on anymore," she says, before turning to Florian. "And hi, I'm Zoé. Nice to meet you again." She crosses her arms. "Now that all that's settled, how did you get in here?"

He looks at Andrew, feeling bad for frightening him. "You okay there buddy? I'm sorry...I didn't mean to startle you." He apologises. "Yeah, how did you get in here?"

The Cushioning Charm is a blessing; taking a deep breath, he lets go of the shelf, falls to the floor and lands on what feels like clouds. He stands him, brushes as much dust as he physically can off of his clouds before realising that they both just asked him a question. "We just... unlocked the door."

"That is so clever, my gosh, why didn't I think of that?"she says, "So, so, so smart. I've been trying to find a way in."
