Viaduct Courtyard

250px-Entrance courtyard 1998

The Viaduct Courtyard (also known as the Entrance Courtyard) is a quadrangle in Hogwarts Castle. A covered stone cloister with an open colonnade runs around it, and two checkpoint towers flank its entryway via the Viaduct. There is a stone walkway leading from this courtyard into The Quad, and into the Viaduct Entrance. The courtyard is partially paved, in a cross pattern. A popular hang-out spot for students of all Houses, this courtyard is where some students spend their spare time playing Gobstones. On 1 September 1998, Hogwarts students marched through this Courtyard, under the supervision of Death Eaters Alecto and Amycus Carrow and Headmaster Severus Snape, as they were led into the Castle.

She slipped out from the Great Hall as soon as she was able to, the chatter and stuffiness of the room getting on her nerves. With the commotion that was their train ride, the small girl wasn't that keen on interacting with a distinct chunk of her year so she hoped she can familiarize herself with her new school without bumping into any of them.

Unfortunately for Maia, she bumped into one right after having the thought. Like literally. The other first year almost made her fall. Fortunately for Maia, it was EQ that she ran into and he was one of the sane ones. "Oh, sorry - I didn't even see you there. I was just trying to get away from the commotion as fast as I could." EQ admitted sheepishly with a charming Schmidt smile. He thought he remembered her being sorted into Ravenclaw like him if his memory wasn't failing.

Maia regains her balance quickly and dusted some imaginary dust off before facing the other first year. One of her new Housemates, if her memory doesn't fail her. One of the sane ones as well. "It's fine, I know how that feels. Barely into the school year and already everyone's at each other's throats." She's a little self-conscious about how out of place her thick accent was, but she focuses on making sure her words were understandable.

Picking up on her heavy French accent, EQ didn't feel so different with his own German one. Sure, it had mixed with English over the years, but most people still couldn't pick it out. "Tell me about it." He chuckled, shaking his head a bit. "We have a very... interesting year group." He decides on the word, although they both know he really means ridiculous.

"I bet classes are going to be a chaotic mess." She says with a little hum, before holding her hand out for a handshake, intending to introduce herself. "My name is Maia Corbel, it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance.

Well, this is a nice change from those rude, impolite jerks. He thought as he stretched his hand out to shake hers. "Name's EQ, nice to meet you." He introduced himself with a short nod. "And I just feel bad for the teachers." EQ admitted in reference to the new haul of devil children.

Peculiar name, she thinks, but says nothing of it. "Well, I'd say I'd be very disappointed if they don't know how to handle a year group like ours. But with how coloré, ah," She pauses, mentally translating. "Colorful our yearmates are, I do agree with you."

EQ nodded. She had a point. "Colorful is a nice way of putting it." He commented with a teasing smile. "Speaking of classes though, which one are you most looking forward to?" He asked, making light conversation.

Maia pauses again, this time mentally going through the list of classes. "I'm not too sure, though my brothers have mentioned DADA, Transfiguration and Charms to be quite interesting. I'm not sure if I should take their word for it though. How about you?"

"I think DADA will be cool." EQ decided with a shrug. "Although, my cousin told me they're doing temporary tattoos in Charms, so that's pretty cool too." He added, thinking about the different classes. "I'm just excited to explore the castle to be honest with you."

"Temporary tattoos?" She looks intrigued. Her brothers never told her about those. Probably because she was "too young" because somehow tattoos were bad influence on younger people. Or maybe Beauxbatons' Charms curriculum is different. Maia's willing to bet the former though, her brothers were jerks like that. "I have the same sentiments. The castle does bring out your inner adventurer."

EQ nodded, his eyes wandering around the ancient architecture surrounding them. "It definitely does. I've already been told of a couple of places already - I'll have to show you sometime." He offered absentmindedly before his gaze returned to Maia. "You were sorted into Ravenclaw, yeah?"

Maia responds to the suggestion with a smile of gratitude, "Ç'est magnifique! The offer is quite appreciated." She then nodded in response to EQ's next question. "Ah, yes, I was. I remember you were Sorted into Ravenclaw as well, am I correct?"

He gave her a nod in response. "Yeah, most of my family thought I was going into Ravenclaw - guess they were right." EQ decided, shrugging a shoulder. "I think it'll be great, but I just wish some of my cousins had been sorted into my house as well." He admitted.

"I have family here who were Sorted differently than I as well. My brothers Marius and Mathéo were Sorted into Gryffindor, I think was the name." She says with a small hum. "How many family members do you have attending here?"

Good question. EQ almost laughed at the thought. Too many honestly. Let's see, there was Cass, Lena, Wolfgang, Astrid, Leyla, Mila, and Adrian? Was that all? "I think there's eight of us in total. Assuming I didn't miss anybody." EQ admitted with a chuckle. "In a couple of years, we could probably start our own school with how many of us there are."
