The Slytherin Dungeons

Christmas Vacation


Recommended Posts

Thorn sleepily rubbed at her half-shut eyes as her chair floated slowly up the stairs from the dungeons and to the Great Hall. It was the frst day of Christmas vacation and she was staying at the school. When the doors swung open, Thorn put her glasses back on and blinked dazedly at the nearly empty room. Snow fell gracefully from the enchanted ceiling, disappearing before it even reached the tables, and a large Christmas tree twinkled with magical lights in the center of the room. A few students and professors were scattered about at their prospective tables. With a soft thud, her chair landed and she rolled herself to the Slytherin table.

Sighing softly as she made her way down the spiral staircase that lead from the entrance to the Ravenclaw Common Room, Elena stepped into the cool corridor of the fifth floor and made her way towards the marble staircases. Making her way down to the Entrance Hall, she silently thought about the letter she had received a few days ago. Just days earlier, she had been prepared to go back to Greece, to the house her brothers had bought a few years ago as a winter house. She was actually a little surprised that her brothers had bought a house since they really didn't like staying in the same house but she just assumed that it was their way of keeping their family together.

 

A few days earlier, she had received a letter saying that they wouldn't be able to meet at the house this Christmas vacation because they both were busy with their jobs but they would still be sending gifts and such. Reaching the Entrance Hall, she moved through the large double doors into the Great Hall and momentarily paused in her steps to take in the scenery; even after being at the school for three years, the sight of the Great Hall during holidays still seemed to stun her. Walking into the room, she spotted her younger brother seated at the Hufflepuff table, but he seemed to be only the second student from the entire house to be there. Glancing around, she noticed not many students had actually stuck around for Christmas but she couldn't really blame them.

 

Passing the Slytherin table, she moved to the next table and walked a little ways down the row. Taking her seat next to one of the other students from Ravenclaw, she continued to let her eyes wander around the hall as she waited for anyone else to show up. Silently, she wondered if the professors were going to put all the students at one larger table instead of four gigantic - almost empty - tables.

Macyn had wanted to go home for the holidays but to her dismay her parents were called into work which required them to travel and a solve a few issues for the Ministry. Macyn walked into the great hall and sighed. She had to admit the Great Hall was a nice sight to behold covered in tinsel and mistle toe and the giant christmas trees were beautifully decorated.

 

Luckly for Macyn her best friend Harper was also staying at Hogwarts for the Holidays. Macyn looked over at her own Gryffindor table but saw very little people there none of which she was friends with. Macyn turned and looked towards in an attempt to spot Harper. She wasn't here yet. Macyn found it pointless to sit at her own table so walked over to the Ravenclaw table to wait for Harper. Macyn sat down and to her left saw a girl who she believed was named Elena. Macyn was bored so she turned toward here,

 

"It's Elena right?"

Yawning again, Elena raised her hand to cover her mouth before closing her eyes for a moment. Resting her hands on her arms, she allowed herself to drift off into a light sleep before the sound of someone else taking a seat at the table woke her. Lifting her head to see who it was, she raised a brow seeing a Gryffindor sitting at the Ravenclaw table. Quickly shrugging it off, she sat up with a soft smile towards the other student. So the houses generally didn't sit together, but why shouldn't they socialize when hardly any students were here.

 

Nodding when the other student spoke to her, her smile broadened a little. "Yeah. You're Macyn, right?" she asked praying to the gods that she had remembered this girls' name correctly. "You're a Gryff, right?" she asked with a smile as she scooted down the bench a little so they didn't have to shout down the table or anything.

The girl shifted down the bench a little and said "Yeah, You're Macyn, right?"

Macyn smiled, "Yep thats me." She looked Elena over and realized her hazel eyes, 'I wish my eyes were normal' Macyn thought. "So why aren't you home for break?" She hoped she wasn't sounding rude for asking she was only curious.

Iverian had been sitting at the Gryffindor table for a few minutes now, but when her friend Kailey had come in and sat at the Ravenclaw table, she decided to join them as well. After introducing herself, she noticed a few lone Slytherins and three Hufflepuffs sitting at their tables. She knew one of the girls, Sybil Thorn, but didn’t know any other Slytherins or, for that matter, any of the Hufflepuffs. She came up to the Slytherins and invited them over. They readily agreed, as did the Hufflepuffs. So there they were all sitting at the Ravenclaw table; about 20 of them.
