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.

He wandered through the courtyard, enjoying the snow. He decided to to come see his family in New Zealand, making this his first Christmas with snow. He stood in the center of the courtyard, watching the flakes fall around him.

Kell was spending the holidays with his family, but he'd gotten home and realised he'd left his charms books at school. On his way back to his dorm in order to collect them, he's taking some time to enjoy the snow. It's never going to be quite as good in Scotland as in Norway, but it's better than in London.

He turns to see the boy walking through the courtyard. It was honestly the first person he had seen all day, so he couldn't help but smile. "You here for the break too? Cause I honestly don't think anyone else is."

He let out a sigh. "You got my hopes up man. I definitely thought there'd be more people staying here, but I guess not." He smiled. "At least I got to see someone while I'm here. I might have gone crazy otherwise."

He shivers and shakes his head. "The ghosts really creep me out, so I try to avoid them..Unless you want to just kidnap me right now, I think I'm just going to hide in the common room away from them." He laughed. "I'm Peter, by the way."

"True, that really sounds awful, but I'm going to have to do it at some point. I feel like i get along with and identify more with the people in fifth year then those in my own. Sometimes, I feel like they kind of hold be back. But, it is what it is, right?"

After lunch, Krys decided to explore the castle she'd be calling home for the next seven years. A place this old must have kept a lot of secrets - and she intended to find out every single one of them - well maybe not every one, but all the interesting ones.

Genesis had ditched spending time with Amphitrie and Aymeric, she just didn't feel like she wanted to be with them today, so she went out to the courtyard and sat down, leaning on a wall.

Krys was heading over to the indoors when she passed by the Courtyard. Her pupils widened in surprise and a grin spreaded across her cheeks when she spot a familiar face. Gennifer? No Genesis. 'Hey, Genesis!'

Genesis heard her name being called out and looked around for who yelled her name out. Is that the first year I met on the train? Genesis thought to herself as she waved to Krys.
