PostSubject: Compartment #8   Tue Jun 25, 2013 8:19 pm

Nicolas had managed to find an empty compartment with the number "8" carved into the wood above the door. He shoved his trunk under the seat and, having no one to talk to and being as annoyingly shy as he was, he sat near the window and just tried to find his parents in the growing crowd.

After passing the near empty compartment about ten times, a pair of wide green eyes looked in from a crack in the door.

"Hi-uhm, do you mind if I sit with you? The train managed to already fill up!" Amanda managed a smile as she stuck her head in a little more.

Nicolas looked away from the window. "Um... yeah! Yeah, there's plenty of room!" He smiled. Someone was talking to him already!

Amanda shimmied in through the small crack in the door she had already opened, closing it quietly behind her. As she sat on the other side of the compartment, she quickly eyed the boy across from her down. 

"Thanks a ton! I can't believe that so few compartments are left... I'm Amanda by the way!"

Nicolas glanced at this girl, quickly looking her up and down. She sure was pretty. "I'm Nicolas. It's, ah, nice to meet you!"

"It's lovely to meet you too!" Amanda took another short look out the window- slowly the crowd outside dwindled down to just parents and lost frogs. 

"Running through that pillar was a little scary! Would have been lovely if they could have made coming in a bit more clear..."

Nicolas laughed. "Yeah, it really is! I actually just waited with my parents until I saw someone else go through... then I figured it mustn't be too bad. Still scary though!" While running up to the barrier, Nick had freaked out about whether he would actually pass through or not - the concept of it was absolutely insane! Like, here, let's send an 11-year-old boy to wizard school, and the only way he can get there is to run through a brick pillar and ride on a scarlet train. Was this real life?

"Mmm, for sure! What house do you think you'll be in?" Okay... this isn't too hard! Just have to keep the conversation going until he dozes off, or the food trolley comes! It's... do-able, Amanda though, as she tugged on her hair. It really did bother her how messy it got if she didn't constantly fix it.

Nicolas looked down at his shoes. They were Sketchers. "Um..." He paused. A wizard had come to his home to tell him about Hogwarts and about wizardry (as was customary with... "Muggle-borns"?), but he hadn't really gone into much detail about the Hogwarts Houses. "I... I don't know, really. It's all kind of new to me."

Amanda frowned in confusion, before putting together that he was most likely a muggleborn. She squeezed her knees, suddenly feeling a wave of guilt for putting him in an uncomfortable situation.

"That... that's alright! I think you may be a Hufflepuff. You seem very sweet!"

"Or I mean, so far. For all I know you could be hiding a dark mark under your sleeve!" Amanda smiled at Nick, hoping to influence a push away from the awkward silence.

Nicolas looked back up at her and grinned. "Thanks! You're really nice, yourself. Hey, um, do you think you could help me out? My parents aren't magic." The words felt weird coming out of his mouth. He was actually afraid to say it, because he wasn't sure how others would react or if he'd be treated differently. But this girl seemed nice!

"Oh! For sure!" Amanda paused for a moment, taking the time to look up and think. "Well, that would mean you're a 'muggle born'. I think it's pretty much the most magical blood since I mean, you just kind of popped up! And then there's half blood, which is a mix of muggles, you know, non magical people, and wizards. That's what I am! And even rarer is a pure blood. No muggles in their blood line what so ever. They can be kind of snotty about that, but blood doesn't really determine ability or personality."

Amanda took a really deep, almost comical breath.

"And then there are the four houses. In short? Gryffindor, the brave, Slytherin, the cunning, Ravenclaw, the intelligent, and Hufflepuff, the loyal... I think that's all you really need to know to begin with. Also, people go wild for Quidditch. It's soccer... but a little more fly-y and a little more broken bones-y."

Nicolas nodded slowly. "O... kay! That helps a lot, actually. I was reading through some of the textbooks before I got here and some of it was kind of confusing, but really cool!" Nicolas looked out onto the platform. Now it was mostly parents - it was almost 11. "Does your house mean anything, really? Or is it just a way to separate students?"

Amanda glanced outside, following his eyes. She kept in an unsurprised sigh- her mother and father had already left.

"I think it's kind of like a test of character, plus houses are like big family.... team... things? You earn points throughout the year, and the winner at the end gets the House Cup."

"Ohh. That makes sense." Kind of. His parents were still there. He yanked open the window so he could wave to them when the train left.

Amanda nodded, quietly taking advantage of the silence to adjust her dress. One of those a size up is too big, a size down is too tight situations.

"I hear the food up at Hogwarts is excellent! I'm hoping it's pretty glorious food, or at least, compared to my mum's."

"Really? That's good! My mum's a great cook, I was afraid that school food would be gross."

"Ooh, I'm jealous. Maybe if you get care packages I might steal a nibble of food! My mum... well she tries. She's a very talented writer! Cooking however... that ought to be left to my dad."

Amanda felt another crashing wave of guilt- here she was talking poorly about her mother to a boy she met five minutes ago. She frowned, casting a quick glance at the already vacant spot her parents had left at the station. Whatever.

Nick laughed. He didn't even think about Amanda badmouthing her mum. "I will! Not everyone's a natural cook. I'm glad my mum is, though." With a lurch, the train began to move forward. Nick leaned out of the window and shouted good-bye to his parents and sister, waving feverishly until the train passed under a tunnel and the station was no longer in sight. He ducked back into the window and closed it.

After feigning excitement and waving to her parent's vacant spot, Amanda took a deep breath as the train was lurched into momentary darkness and into the sunlight- to Hogwarts they went.

"So, how long is this train ride?" Nicolas asked. He hoped it wouldn't be too long, lest there be awkward silences. They were already off to such a good start! Nicolas could feel himself coming out of his shell already.

Amanda yawned behind her hand, and then stretched as she spoke- waking up at 3 in the morning to double check her luggage was not her best plan.

"I think a couple of hours? I personally don't understand why we wouldn't use Portkies... They basically teleport a dozen people or so at a time to the destination in no time! But the atmosphere of the train is kind of irreplaceable, I guess."

"That's not bad, then... what's a porkey?" There was so much to learn about this culture... jeez. Just the lingo was confusing at best. I'm smart though! This won't be a problem.

"It's kind of a device that you enchant to get you from place a to b. So say your grandmom lives in America and you in England- you set up a time for the Portkey to work, and use it at that precise time. It's typically an old boot or other trash so muggles avoid it."

Amanda, paused considering what she just said.

"Or I think that's along the lines of how it functions."

"So it just teleports you places." Nicolas nodded slowly. "Alright... Cool."
