Welcome to the Great Hall. This is where many Hogwarts meals are served. The Great Hall (only on the occasion), however, may be used as a "sanctuary" if any event that harms any of the students occurs. Meals are taken here, and the sorting ceremony is held here too. Every year during the Christmas holiday season, the Great Hall is decorated with many decorated pine trees and a big one behind the staff table.
She took her usual place in front of the students, waiting for it to quiet down. "Good evening, everyone. I am so happy to see all of you back here again. It fills my heart with joy to see the amazing future of the wizarding world sitting here, and am excited to see what each and every one of you will achieve this year. As always, if you ever need help or advice, every teacher here, including myself, is here for you. Don't let your problems go unsolved and your question unanswered. We are here for you, and will do all we can to help you succeed." She paused, smiling out at the students. "This year, I want you all to reach for the stars and do the best you can. Show the world what truly amazing students is Hogwarts is full of. Let us fill the world with love, respect, and knowledge. But, for now, how about we enjoy this miraculous feast." She smiled again, clapping her hands together, and summoning the food.

Melania stepped into the great hall with a map in hand, glancing down at the paper before looking up to make sure she had found the right spot. She wondered if anyone knew her sister and silently made her way to sit down at the Gryffindor table alone. She appeared to be the first Gryffindor there.
*Nuala tossed out her own musing from her seat across from Tori and Mason.* "Not anymore than last year, I think.? They've got the Head Boy and the Head Girl this time around. Their just alive like they think it's the year of Hufflepuff."
-"This is a battle and you are the prize, put down that piano, let's start our lives. You've got more soldiers but I've got more passion and I'm right behind you, just gaining traction. Pow pow pow pow, bang bang bang bang." Message Me – 06:28, April 24, 2017 (UTC)
She walks by the Hufflepuff table, and upon seeing Enzo stuffing his face, Elena brightens up and laughs a bit. She decides to take the seat directly in front of him, but she doesn't say anything. She just keeps....looking, with a happy expression on her face.

He came into the Great Hall on his skateboard until Sobek locked eyes with him and Jarryd folded, getting off his board. He kept walking until he found an empty seat, next to Enzo. "Dude, congrats on becoming head boy."
"If someone had told me my brother would be head boy three years ago - I'd have laughed. I'm proud of you though." Lina quirked a grin at her twin brother. "Does this mean I can't break curfew to stargaze anymore? Will my own womb-mate bust me?"
*Enzo laughed trying not to choke on his food. He gave a nod to Jarryd he was still surprised by the honor. He sent a grin in Elena's direction he was glad in there were anyone he had to ask for help it was her, and finally he exchanged glances with Lina he wouldn't admit to giving her preferential treatment but everyone probably should've know he was going to.*

Raevyne made she to bring her book with her to the great hall to read while she munched on whatever she saw fit. The brunette picked a random spot and sat.

She'd needed to use the bathroom, and squeaked in just in the nick of time, grabbing a seat next to Leo. "Hey."
Regan BlackRavenclaw Third Year -Hope and Ferlen Black's daughter – 00:14, April 24, 2017 (UTC)
She took a seat, low-key saving the one next to her for Liliya, who she was looking out for.
"You played Beater for how many hears?" *She reached up running her index finger along Scarlet's nose before she softly pushed the tip like a doorbell.* "You're so cute when you don't know what you're talking about."

"I've played cricket with my dad before, which is like being a beater." Scarlet giggled as Clair ran her finger down her nose. "I always know what I'm talking about." Scarlet tried to be serious saying that, but was still laughing. "I've got to admit, a lot of people would get thoughts about us when they see us like this and find out we sleep next to each other."
"Okay, but. Cricket isn't quidditch. So it isn't like being a beater." *She tossed her head around as she scanned the Ravenclaw table and the Great Hall. She looked back at Scarlet and shrugged.* "What? I think they'd be more surprised we aren't sleeping closer than that."
Constance had adjusted well to her spot in Slytherin, although it seemed personally wrong. Although she tried to make eye contact with Aymeric or Genesis in the other tables, it seemed impossible, so she just attempted to socialize with the other kids.
