The Sorting Ceremony drew to a close in an eruption of claps and cheers resounding throughout the Great Hall, as the last remaining first year made their way to their new house table. Katherine joined in on the final applause. The Sorting Hat had done its job well, as always. While not every student may have agreed with their house placement - and as with every year some did indeed some looked shocked or disappointed by the decision - they'd soon learn that they were put into their house for the qualities they possessed, whether they were aware of them yet or not. Their traits weren't always so obvious at first, Katherine herself was at times surprised by where the hat placed some of the students, but as time went on and the children developed, their house attributes became more recognizable. The Headmistress was confident they'd come to understand that.

Removing the patchy enchanted hat and the stool it now sat on, Katherine levitated both to the left of the stage and returned to her place behind the podium, raising her hands to command silence. A hush fell over the hall and Katherine began to move on, her voice magically amplified with a Sonorus Charm. "Thank you, students. Now, before we begin, I'd like to introduce myself, and some of the other staff here. I am your Headmistress, Professor Katherine Alicastell, and beside me -" She gestured toward the staff table behind her, where the other professors were seated. "Are your Heads of Houses. These professors are here to guide you and lead your respective houses. Your Head of House for Hufflepuff is Professor Landon Carter. For Gryffindor, Professor Cyndi Kingsley, Professor Kahurangi Josephs for Ravenclaw and for Slytherin, Professor Kalif Styx." She introduced each of them present as she spoke, ensuring the newly sorted first years knew who to look for if they needed any assistance. After speaking briefly of key points of interest throughout the school, the hospital wing among them, she moved on to conclude the ceremony. "Another reminder to those old and new that the forest is strictly off-limits to students, and those found wandering through it without supervision will be punished severely. Another announcement I'd like to make is this; The house elves employed here are members of school staff, not your personal slaves. Some of you with house elves in the family may think it appropriate to treat them that way. Let me assure you, it is not. Students are welcome to politely request food from the kitchens out of breakfast, lunch and dinner hours. You are not welcome to demand it, nor are you welcome to help yourselves to the school's food supply without express permission from the elves or another member of staff. I hope I've made myself perfectly clear. With that said, I would like to welcome you all again to another fantastic year at Hogwarts. Stay out of trouble, study hard, and enjoy your time here. Now let the feast begin!" At once, the empty tables were filled with various foods - roast meats, potatoes, salads and pies tirelessly prepared by the house elves working in the kitchens below, and Katherine returned to her seat at the centre of the staff table.

For years, the school had remained silent of all poltergeist activity, but it was not because he was gone for good. It had taken Vex many years to work out an escape, and now he finally had, he was… still actually quite terrified of the headmistress, because who wouldn’t be? The monster in robes had him locked up, alone, for years! Kingy had never done such a thing, and it had taken so long to become solid again. To think, the usurper had stolen Kingy’s office, stolen his throne and then locked him away. There were more changes that the poltergeist didn’t appreciate - like where was Professor Pendleton? He was the most fun to tease. Oh, how he had enjoyed perfecting his slime consistency with on him. His office was different, now. Had Pendleton been replaced, too? Further investigation was needed.​
Vex had to do something big. Not big enough to get locked back up again, but big enough to remind the usurper that he was still here, and she couldn’t get rid of him forever. Throwing himself on her table and crying hysterically had failed to work last time. This time, though, he was going to try being sneaky a little longer, first. Slipping into the Great Hall whilst invisible, the poltergeist observed all the new students, and various new professors, as well. Pendleton was nowhere to be seen. He could spot the Head Boy, though, so that was nice. He would have to slime him later, though he had no idea why he wasn’t dressed like he used to be.​
As Katherine’s speech came to an end and food started appearing on the tables, Vex decided that would be his moment. The poltergiest slipped out of the Great Hall and went Full Drama. The doors to the Great Hall burst open with quite the fanfare following. Confetti shot out of small, floating cannons, trumpets playing obnoxiously and the poltergeists maniacal cackling ringing through the room. Perhaps some students had heard about him through older siblings, but after seven years, Vex was ready to stamp the school with his mark all over again. He would just have to perfect his slime recipe first, however, and there was no better initial test than right now.​
Vex switched in and out of visibility, just long enough to drop slime on unsuspecting Gryffindors and Hufflepuffs. There was no rhyme nor reason as to why he selected his victims, but he did remember sliming the Slytherin table the last feast he attended, so it was probably time he got these ones. Some students were ignored entirely, some were simply in the splash zone, and some had entire bucket-sized amounts of slime dumped on their heads before he hurriedly moved onto the next. It could be cleaned up easily, though no one appreciated the initial feel of ooze on them, of course. Some buckets of slime were lumpy, other buckets were far too liquid-like, and one particularly unlucky student had a bucket filled with viscous slime.​
What a great start to the year!​

Angel had spent most of the winter break feeling bitter about New Zealand's backwards seasons so he wouldn't have to focus too hard on his small crisis about his feelings for Josephine. He still couldn't deny he was excited about classes starting back again, if only cause it meant having an easily explainable excuse to talk her regularly. This was a totally adult way to handle things, but Angel had never been very good in that department. He hadn't forgotten long and drawn out the sorting ceremony could be, and Angel had nearly lulled himself into a stupor during the whole process, letting the various names of the new first years wash over before it was finally time for food. He swore he must have not been fully awake again though, since he jumped, grasping for his wand fruitlessly when the doors slammed open and the proceeding chaos, confetti, and slime commenced. Angel mostly watched, amused and baffled at the mess, glancing at his fellow staff before deciding maybe this was just best to let happen. What better way to introduce the students to the magical world and start things off with a bang.

Skylar had been happily enjoying the feast, glad to have been put into Gryffindor, and eager to start experiencing the magical world that was oh so different from the muggle world she grew up in. She'd been seated next to some girls who had already seemed to know each other, so she was just minding her own business and eating whatever she pleased whilst observing everyone else. People watching. That's what it was. She found it fascinating how each person had a whole different life to hers yet they all lived together in (relative) peace. She couldn't explain it exactly but simply enjoyed looking at others and how they lived their lives. Which was why she caught herself wondering why on earth she hadn't been placed in Ravenclaw! Though she had to say she was secretly happy about it, 'bunch of nerds they are' she muttered under her breath.

But anyway, since she was largely minding her own business, she must have been one of the first to see something beginning to happen near the Great Hall doors, which was why when they burst open with a bang, she jumped, but not as much as she saw some others jump. "WOAH!" she gave a yelp of terror, as slime randomly started dunking other students! She narrowly missed a particularly large bucketful falling on her, and it only soaked her shoulder and back, her face was still fine so she could see properly. Even with all the chaos happening she still had time to think "Thank god my hair's okay" because that was just the kind of person she was. Someone who valued their hair, and didn't want it covered in slime. Snapping out of it, she watched with the slime dunking other students, and at first she thought it was happening all on it's own but as she looked closely she saw it was a... a ghost?! "Holy crab apples, it's a GHOST!" she was terrified, the muggle world had no ghosts whatsoever, and even if they did, the Ghostbusters would have obviously gotten rid of them quickly enough! Even though there were clearly more important things to worry about, her mind was suddenly filled with the Ghostbusters theme song. "UGH NOT NOW!" that was just another thing to add to the chaos already, and no matter how much she tried to push the song out of her head and think of something else it just didn't seem to work.

Filled with terror, she scrambled under the table, hoping that she wouldn't get slimed nor would the ghost catch her there and she curled up in a ball and waited it out, the Ghostbusters theme song still persistently playing in her head.

When Hamish had not seen Vex stuffing gum in the keyholes or making puddles in the Entrance Hall, he had thought that the poltergeist was gone (well, he had hoped). He had been slimed quite a number of times when a student, and he was becoming steadily more grateful with the fact that this was just a nice, short term position, because he wouldn't have to deal with the non-being's antics for long. Sinking in his chair slightly, the professor knew that there was little he could do to stop Vex from going after whatever he wanted, unless there was a suitable distraction. "Oh, sh!t, he's still here." His old tactic was to just redirect Vex's behaviour onto someone else, by telling him that someone had called him a mean name, or inventing some sort of prank that someone was trying. Unfortunately, as a professor, he couldn't very well just send the poltergeist off to pick on one person in particular.

Seb listened to the Headmistress as she spoke, excited about the said feast that was coming. He was a bit upset that they weren't allowed to explore the Forest, why was it there if they weren't allowed to go in? He wondered how 'severe' the punishment would be if he wasn't wondering through it...what if he was just climbing up the trees? That wasn't something that she mentioned. Thinking of how upset his mother would be though, Seb pushed the thought aside and decided instead that he would befriend the House Elves and cook with them. As the Headmistress started the feast, Seb's eyes went wide at all the food in front of him. There must be like, a million elves to make all this food! Sebastian couldn't wait to meet them. He went to start piling food on his plate when an almighty noise erupted and Seb screamed, covering his head, and then looking to see where it came from. He laughed at everyone's hystericalness when it was just confetti, but pretty soon it wasn't confetti and there was a poltergeist above him, and all of a sudden, he was slimed. The boy had to laugh, it was funny, people were getting slimed everywhere, but then he looked back across the table and frown grew on his face. "Noooo, not the chicken!!!!" He complained, as he tried to wipe slime from the chicken piece.

After a little while longer of cowering under the table, Skylar realised something. "Hold up... no one else is panicking as much as I am. No one else seems to be yelling out for everyone to evacuate... no one else is hiding under the table." and suddenly it struck her. She remembered reading about the Hogwarts ghosts and poltergeists in one of the books she'd gotten from Flourish and Blotts, she couldn't believe she'd forgotten! They weren't that bad, and completely normal! Sure, they liked pranks, but they wouldn't really bring serious harm to anyone, right? Feeling like the biggest idiot in the world, she climbed out from under the table and glanced around. Some people seemed to be laughing and enjoying it, some girls were fussing about their hair and some were just... continuing on with their food? Huh.

Well, dusting herself off, Skylar climbed back onto the bench and decided what she'd do next. She was thinking about starting a food fight, since it couldn't get anymore messy than it already was, but she felt that was a waste of food. Maybe someone else would start it soon? She was sure of it. On the other hand, growing up as a muggle-born, she knew the tune to the Ghostbusters theme song pretty well... it certainly seemed to fit the occasion! A mischevious smile played on her lips. She wondered whether anyone would join her if she suddenly started belting out the tune to it, but then on the other hand she remembered half the school had grown up in the wizarding world. All the more fun to see the shock on their faces she supposed... she decided to wait a while longer before adding in her own chaos and see how the situation would evolve.

Professor Kingsley nodded her head as the headmistress introduced her and then resumed looking at the Gryffindor table, taking in as many of the new and returning faces as she could. There were many Gryffindors to take in, but she had the year to get to know them all. The troublemakers and the oldest students usully remained present in her mind. Everyone else sifted through, coming and going, as they did in the common room.

As introductions finished, the professor turned to the colleague nearest to her to ask about their break, but she didn't find the words before she was interrupted, distracted more like by the school's poltergeist. Professor Kingsley groaned as he wreaked havoc about the room, her Gryffindors targets to his mischief making. The woman heaved a great big sigh before reaching for some mashed potatoes and proceeding to ask the question that had been on her mind. This feast was sure going to be one that remained fresh on the new first year's minds for some time to come.

He didn't really know what Gryffindor meant, but it was red and its crest had a lion on it, so he supposed he wasn't really complaining very much. Flynn was grinning the whole time when he jumped down from the sorting stool and found himself a seat at the Gryffindor table, quite eager and ready to jump right into his dinner. He was quite surprised about how hungry he actually was. Though it was with some disdain when slime suddenly appeared out of nowhere, a lot of it going right over his head and dripping unceremoniously onto the table in front of him.

"HEY!" He snapped, shaking his head, slime flying off the strands of his curly hair. Though it seemed as though some people were freaking out more than he was about the situation and instantly, Flynn got mischief in his head. What a perfect opportunity to ruin some other people's days? The goo had even been provided for him. Trying to be a subtle as he could, Flynn scooped some of the slime up off the table, a slight grin curving his lips as, when he was sure no one was looking, chucked it across the table at whoever happened to be sitting there.

Amari barely listened to the Headmistress' speech. It was pretty much the same every year, and she really couldn't care less. She had plans this year, and that was all that her mind was focused on. Her eyes traveled down the Gryffindor table to see if there was anyone there that would fit in with her plans, and she did notice one boy, alas an older one, but one that had a reputation. Amari smirked, making a mental note of seeking him out at some point before a some commotion happened. Amari wrinkled her nose, disgusted by the creepy ghost thing dropping slime on everyone, glad that it missed her. Someone else, however, thought this wasn't okay, and she felt a slap of slime hit her face. Amari screamed, and looked around, trying to figure out who threw slime at her. The only person she could think would have the guts to do that to her was @Emma van Houten . Glaring at the girl, Amari wiped it off her face and threw it back at her.

Kas had spent most of sorting ceremony the keeping a running commentary on the new prospective students with Freya. He'd discovered last year it was the best way to keep busy until they could finally eat. The food at school could often be pretty hit or miss, but Kas was willing to subject himself to it if meant the sorting ceremony would finally be done. Right as they were about to dig in though, there was a slam and following fanfare, which made Kas pause warily. He didn't think the school had invested in a newfound entertainment budget and quickly balked when he spotted the slime-filled chaos unfolding. "Nope. No. Absolutely not," Kas muttered, grabbing his plate and simply retreating under the table like some other students had. Eating on the floor was undignified, but staying seated at the table was not worth the amount of scourgifying he'd have to do after.

Mary Lou was really looking to the feast, even though she was still completely convinced she smelled like a dump, despite the best efforts of her friends, she was trying very hard to be positive. It was very difficult of course, and she had to constantly remind herself that people weren't staring at her, even though she was absolutely convinced that they were. She sat in the newly vacated second years section of the table and clapped lightly when new first years joined their houses, clapping a little bit louder when they were called to Hufflepuff. She was going to have so many new people to meet and she was super excited about it. She already had a couple of new recipes she wanted to try that she had found in one of the old cookbooks in the dusty cupboard she'd managed to secretly get into over the holidays. She sat quietly watching the speech as Professor Katherine the Headmistress walked about the Heads of House. As the speech finished, Mary Lou looked down to focus on the food that had appeared in front of her. She didn't think she was ever going to get used to that because magic was still so very strange to the young Hufflepuff. She was half way from the spoon being in her mouth when it seemed as the the entire Great Hall erupted into chaos and as Mary Lou looked up, all she saw was green as an entire bucket of slime was dumped onto her head, dripping down her face and into her robes. She sat there, motionless for what felt like hours before the tears sprang to her eyes and she kicked away from the table, rushing out of the hall so fast she thought she might have been able to run right through the wall. The only place she wanted to be was the common room, because there was no way she could show her face in this school. It wasn't even a day since Luxen had threatened her, and now the school was against her too. That had to be what it meant with that bucket of slime just appearing on top of her, right?​

Though Lysander had gotten to see Emma over the holidays, he was still excited to be back at school and hang out with her and the rest of his friends whenever he wanted, without having to send owls and try figure everything out. The boy picked idly at his vegetables, and had been about to tell Emma all about how Wendall had gotten himself stuck in the door on the train ride to the castle, when he was interrupted by an explosion on confetti. He raised his hands to try catch some out of the air, only to have a pile of green slime dumped over his face instead. He wiped it from his eyes with a confused laugh. How had he gone two whole years without coming across this crazy poltergeist? This was the best feast yet! His dinner might have been ruined, but he had a ton of chocolates and snacks in his dorm to make up for it later, and they definitely tasted better than the food he was having. A glop of slime passed him out of nowhere, seemingly aimed at Emma. Not wanting to miss out on the action himself, Sander scooped up a pile of leafy slime from his plate and chucked it back at @Amari Kent. "Slime fight!" He shouted with a grin, looking around the table to see who else he could get out of the bunch of students who'd so far managed to avoid any.​

Lillith was startled, one minute they were eating chicken, the next minute the girl beside her was fully covered in slime. Saira had been luckily splashed by a little of it, most of it on her side. Seeing as the ghost still had unfinished business, she quickly hid under the table, some following her actions and who unfortunately weren’t given a chance to. In a matter of seconds, the hall was a war zone, she peered outside and waited for someone to take care of the mess.

Flynn had no idea that the school had a poltergeist, but Hogwarts was looking like it was going to start off with a bang and he wanted to join in. Obviously the poltergeist had started it by providing the slime, but when someone else shouted for there to be a slime fight, well, Flynn couldn't say no to that. Slime was already flying around the table, so what was a little more? He could do with a good sliming. Scooping up a huge blob, he threw it up the table at another Gryffindor, laughing almost excitedly as the poltergeist.​

This was all a bit more excitement than what Donna was used to. Everything seemed to be going to plan at first, and then suddenly chaos erupted and she found herself covered in dripping slime. It was cold, it was gross, and she was quite upset about it, but not nearly as upset as another Hufflepuff boy seemed to be about the chicken. Wiping herself off as best she could, the Hufflepuff offered her plate to @Sebastian Grimm, where three chicken drum sticks were sitting neatly on it, slime-free. "Do you want some of my chicken?"

Gryffindor, huh. Harper wasn't completely sure what to think, but at least her house had the nicest colors. And bold and courageous sounded like a recipe for a fun house. Harper walked to the Gryffindor table and watched as the rest of the sorting took place. The headmistress took to the podium again to finish the announcements, and Harper listened carefully. It was all fairly standard stuff until the end, when the headmistress mentioned "house elves." Elves? Those existed? Food appeared in front of her, and Harper looked around curiously, trying to catch a glimpse of these elves. What other magical creatures existed?

It didn't take long for her to get an answer as the doors suddenly flew open, and what appeared to be a ghost flew in. Harper flinched violently and shrieked before realizing that very few other students were reacting with the same terror. She reddened. So much for being courageous. The ghost flew over her table, tossing slime. Harper tried to dodge a glob and elbowed the person beside her in the process of doing so. "Sorry!" Though she'd avoided a full-on hit, some of the stuff still got on the sleeve of her robe, causing her to grimace.

Harper started to right her overturned glass but thought better of it when some of her fellow Gryffindors called for a slime fight, and a girl near her got hit in the face. Gross. But if she was going to be forced into a slime fight, she wasn't about to leave herself defenseless. Harper emptied out a basket of slime-covered bread and clutched it to her chest, ready to use it as a shield if needed. Were the teachers going to do anything about this? She eyed the table at the head of the room, but no one seemed to be reacting. What kind of school was this? "Does this sort of thing happen often?" she muttered to one of the older students.

The train ride had been... eventful, and Freya mostly just wanted to go take a shower and wash off the lingering smell of stink pellets instead of having to sit through another feast. To avoid offending her horrible friends housemates and their functioning noses, Freya headed for the Gryffindor table and tried to blend in. She wanted to see if she could sneak up to Emma before the Gryffindor saw her, but her scheming was interrupted by the utter chaos unfolding. Freya froze in horror as the slime splattered her. She hadn't been covered too badly, but Freya could see flecks of it in her hair and was entirely disgusted. On the bright side, it seemed to cover up the stink pellet stench that she hadn't quite been able to remove. She refused to suffer alone, however, and gathered some concerningly lumpy slime as she headed to her own house's table. Scanning the area until she found Kas, she crouched down and dumped a handful of slime down her housemate's neck, careful to avoid ruining his hair - she wasn't a monster, and then climbed under the table to join him. "I think the ceiling's having weather issues," she said, calmly. @Kasim Safir

Rai wasn't sure what he felt about the start of year feasts and all the dumb announcements. He wasn't sure why it was a bad thing for the first years to go into the forest, after all, no one had died in years and he totally knew people went in there, everyone did it eventually, he wasn't sure why they didn't just put a dumb fence around it or whatever, it would have made sense to keep people out since they clearly weren't smart enough to keep themselves out. As the speech concluded, Rai saw about to settle into his food and turned to look at @Riku Mckenna only to be rudely interrupted by the screeching and screaming of people clamouring around. It took Rai a second to pry himself out of his inner hatred for everyone to look around and see that there appeared to be an entity sliming people left right and centre. "Oh bloody hell," he said, quickly covering his meal with a book so he could continue eating.​

Sitting right at the edge of the Slytherin table was... strange. He remembered being a first year, nearly seven whole years ago. Who would have thought he would get to this point and so much have happened. It was incredibly hard to believe it. He could almost have laughed if he'd had it in him. He shook his head and finished watching the sorting, applauding when Grace was sent to Gryffindor with Rowan. Though Zennon was a little concerned she wouldn't' see much of her anyway, since he had a funny feeling in the pit of his stomach regarding her. He listening to Professor Alicastell's speech, but wasn't really paying attention as flashes of Elsie and Rowan getting sorted sped through his mind. It was painful to think about, but he was head boy now, as much as he wished he wasn't, he had to focus and he knew that, he just wished he didn't. It was a sliming that got his attention and he looked up to see a poltergeist buzzing about. Merlin, Zennon hadn't seen him since first year! He wondered what had happened to the poltergeist, but didn't stay to dilly dally before he raised his arm up to wave at @Analei Louw and try to get her attention. "Hey! Gem! Grab some prefects!" There looked to be a food fight breaking out and Zennon knew they would need to be mindful that people didn't get pelted with slime and food.​

Hilda had just sat down at the table when she heard the hall doors open. A few seconds later before she even realized it, she found herself covered with a gelatinous substance ,she wiped it off her face as quickly as possible and realized that the substance was just slime. She then watches the reaction of others to this strange situation,some was panicked, others were hiding under tables and some was trying to save food, she noticed that the beginning of a slime fight and decided to join it because as much take advantage of the amount of slime to do something .
Hilda felt that this was the start of a very good year .

Roxas couldn't believe any of this! There was a poltergeist!? He thought he'd heard rumours about something like that but since he hadn't seen any evidence of a poltergeist he thought maybe that meant that it was just the older students playing tricks. But apparently not! Roxas looked to @Corey Edogawa and pulled him to move under the table with him. "Oh no!" He cried, looking at his robes to realise he'd been slimed. "I've been hit!" He cried, realising now it made not much sense to be under the table since he'd not quite made it in time. He hoped the house elves knew how to get slime out of robes!​

The Sorting was finally over, and everybody was settled in their seats. The Headmistress began her speech, and Aisling listened respectfully. Ravenclaw. Aisling was happy with that. It seemed like a good fit for her and she was looking forward to going and meeting her house mates later. For now though, she was content to just look around and try to take it all in.
After the speech, the plates were filled with food and she smiled before reaching for a slice of chicken. At that moment, a large amount of slime was dropped onto her head. She gasped as she felt the goo drip down her head and onto her robes. Looking around, the hall was erupting into chaos, with most people covered in slime and some chucking it at the people sitting around them. One girl had gotten up and ran out of the room. At this point, Aisling ducked under the table to take shelter from the flying slime. “Well this is quite the welcome, isn’t it?” she said to the person next to her.

Corey had been about to reach for the chicken before chaos descended. It was all very confusing and he really hadn't gotten to process much before he felt something cold and liquidy ending up on his hair and most of his back before he was being dragged by Roxas by his robes. He snickered though when @Roxas Mckenna had stated that he'd been hit. Hadn't he noticed that Corey was by far worse? Grinning madly, Corey placed his hand on the slime on his hair before looking at it. This was certainly a first. Having nothing better to do, he flicked some of it Roxas' way. It would be a while before he got that chicken.

This was another thing going on his list of issues with the school. Not only had he failed to get into Hufflepuff, but now there was a poltergeist throwing slime everywhere and creating as much mess as possible, and then the Gryffindors seemed to be helping it! Maybe if he somehow managed to send his father a letter, it wouldn't be too late and they could just cancel his student visa or something and deport him back to Italy. It was Eretria's table being hit, as well. He had lost sight of her after sitting down, but he would have to ask her if she got covered in all of that... ooze. The Ravenclaw shuddered and decided he had officially given up with this school after being there all of one hour. He tucked under the table with a plate of bread, which was the first thing he grabbed. Guess this was dinner now. "Guess it is," he replied to @Aisling Sullivan, offering her some bread. "Hopefully breakfast will be better." He wasn't eating poached eggs under the table.
