Great Hall

Greathall

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.

"The very best of evenings to you all! No, to our new students, welcome! Hogwarts will be your home for the next seven years, but they'll be the most trying years of your lives. I encourage you all to make the most of it and get to know your yearmates; they'll be the ones you'll have to rely on most. To our old students, welcome back! Another year full of magical education awaits you! As always, if you have any issues throughout the school year please be sure to seek guidance from your respective prefects and/or Head of House," Evangeline pauses and smiles. "Now, onto more exciting news. I'm sure you're all very interested in the goblet that stands in the middle of the hall. I'm happy to announce that Hogwarts will be hosting the 2037 - 2038 Triwizard Tournament! Our friends from Ilvermorny School in America and Beauxbatons Academy in France will be arriving in the coming weeks to partake. Of course, the champions will be chosen by an impartial selector: the Goblet of Fire! Nonetheless, there's an age line; only students who have completed their OWLs will be able to put their name in the running," she pauses again, waiting for the chatter to die down. "Champions will be selected the evening of Halloween. That's all for the time being. Let the opening feast commence!"

Jake wasn't really here for the excitement buzzing around the Great Hall. No, he was here for the food. He'd much rather enjoy the bounty of meats, breads, and side dishes than to talk to people. His bored gaze lazily noted the new Gryffindors as he chewed on a bite of French bread.

Taking a very large swig of pumpkin juice, Adrian nudges his sister's shoulder in response and sticks his tongue out at Astrid and Leyla.

He chuckled deeply at the posh accent. "Nice. My dad only uses my full name... and let me say, it's long, when I've done something stupid. Nice to meet you, Donnie." Hearing his actual name, Max's expression went hilariously wide. "Oh wow... yeah, I can see why you go by Donnie. I mean, Donald? As in Donald Duck? Who are your parents to curse you with a name like that?" He questioned, brightness in his eyes as he snagged a piece of steak, beginning to gnaw at it happily.

He bites into the chicken, managing to make it look somewhat elegant as he guffaws at the mickey-taking. It's happened so often, it's basically self-deprecating at this point. "They're posh bastards, that's who they are," he says, pointedly gesturing with a butter knife. "Donald Finch-Hatton, if you want the full shebang. But hey - who are yours to call you bloody Maximus? Do they like Ancient Greece or did they just watch Gladiator a few too many times?"

My biological father’s dead and I don’t talk with my mom anymore. So... I don’t know.” Max gnawed off more of his steak happily. “Anyways, what are your plans for after the feast?”

Wow, okay. Feeling like a bit of a dick for the parent jab, Donnie does what he does best to get over it - ignore it completely. "Erm... I dunno, really," he says, truthfully: probably find Xavier or Holly or Dick, if not then go to the library and find something interesting to read. "I've not seen any of my mates yet so they could be anywhere. Why, are you planning anything?"

Truth be told, she couldn't wait to see Andrew and she was currently looking for him over at the Hufflepuff table. It only took her a moment to realize she was being kind of pathetic before shoving a spoonful of mashed potatoes into her mouth. Allura was getting way too reliant on the older boy and it scared her. But maybe that was a good thing?

Laughing at the banter flying between all the firsties - they're rude little shits, but they're funny - he reaches for another chicken wing and is distracted by the sudden flash of red hair. Damn, she's pretty. But then Max speaks, so he looks back patiently, a fleck of chicken skin between his lips.

He remarked faintly, reaching forward to swipe off the chicken skin between Donnie's lips with an elegant finger. "Same dad, her's biological, my adoptive."

Evangeline isn't really touching her food much, busying herself with drinking the contents on her goblet and occasionally eating the mashed potatoes she'd separated for herself. She looks over the student body, keeping an eye on the first years; she had a feeling they'd be a handful this year. Likewise, she studies the sixth and seventh years, mostly wondering who would be representing Hogwarts in the tournament.

Oliver just takes in a deep breath as he tries to calm himself down. He didn't think he would be so nervous being a teacher at Hogwarts, and tried not to make too much eye contact with anyone out in the crowd. He didn't even know why he was there, or why he wanted to be a teacher in the first place. But, here he was. He just took a bite of his food, and hoping to talk to Andre as soon as possible.
