Welcome to Potter's Army

We have been a Harry Potter Roleplaying site since 2007. If you're an old member we hope you come check out the discord link provided below. And if you're looking for a new roleplaying site, well, we're a little inactive. But every once and a while nostalgia sets in and a few of our alumni members will revisit the old stomping grounds and post together. Remember to stay safe out there. And please feel free to drop a line whenever!

What’s Happening?
Since every few months or so a few of our old members get the inspiration to revisit their old stomping grounds we have decided to keep PA open as a place to revisit old threads and start new ones devoid of any serious overarching plot or setting. Take this time to start any of those really weird threads you never got to make with old friends and make them now! Just remember to come say hello in the chatbox below or in the discord. Links have been provided in the "Comings and Goings" forum as well as the welcome widget above.

Chase was humming, for the first time in what felt like years, she was humming, and she was happy at the same time. A silly little song she had heard when she was just a kid, she loved this song, for her mother used to sing it to her, at least, until she started to go to Hogwarts, she used to hum herself to sleep after she had left home, for the magical land of Hogwarts, that now, she knew the song by heart, every word and melody, and now, seeing as she wasn't exactly in the middle of Hogsmeade, she started to sing it.

"Wishing on a dream that seems far off
Hoping it will come today
Into the starlit night
Foolish dreamers turn their gaze
Waiting on a shootin star
But

What if that star is not to come
Will their dreams fade to nothing?
When the horizon darkens most
We all need to believe there is hope

Is an angel watching closely over me?
Can there be a guiding light i've yet to see?
I know my heart should guide me but
Theres a hole within my soul
What will fill this emptiness inside of me

Am I to be satisfied without knowing
I wish then for a chance to see
Now all I need,
Is my star to come..."

Chase smiled and sat down on a rock, it was lovely today, the sun was shining, and it reflected off her hair in such a way that people down in hogsmeade, for she was up by the Shrieking Shack, probably thought there was a big red light shining from up there. She smiled and looked up at the sky, the never ending blue, and for the first time in what felt like such a long time, she was content and happy.

The sun was out, but it didn’t make Nerissa feel any more joyous or hopeful- in fact, the sun’s rays were burning her exposed arms and the back of her neck, and there was no shade to be seen for miles. Nerissa didn’t know what she thought she would find in Hogsmeade that should couldn't find in her town, but she had needed to get out of her house for a moment; her parents smiled a lot, and laughed, and called Nerissa by several different nicknames that only parents could come up with- but she couldn’t do it anymore. Nerissa couldn’t pretend for much longer that something wasn’t wrong; that she didn’t jump at every sudden noise, or avoid getting anywhere near the windows in her bedroom at night because she felt that someone was sitting in the tree outside, watching her.

And so she had decided to take a walk down the streets of London- which then, had turned into a spontaneous train ride to Hogsmeade; anything to avoid speaking another lie.

The silence was good because it gave her a chance to think about her plants and how wonderfully they had looked when she had gone out to care for them that morning- but at the same time, the quiet made her feel on-edge and she couldn’t fight the shiver that ran down her spine whenever someone walked past her or bumped her in the train as she made her way to the steps and onto the platform. People were chattering and the train was making the noises that trains made, but all of that seemed to be muted to Nerissa’s ears when she started down the narrow streets of Hogsmeade, trying her best to shade her face and her eyes with her hands in order to avoid the sun as it glared down at her.

“Excuse me- ms…” The young redhead female called as she walked up to a girl who appeared to be somewhere around the same age as she herself was; she wanted to know if the other witch knew of any way to keep from getting burned… “You wouldn’t happen to know how to conjure a sunhat, would you? It seems that the sun dislikes Ravenclaws today,” she continued, fallowed by a short wave that should have come first.

Chase was smiling happily at the day, it was just, so beautiful, when another redhead walked up to her. "Oh wow! You're hair is the same color as mine!" She said her eyes wide, completely oblivious to what the other girl had asked. "Oh.. sunhat? Hmm.." She thought for a second, and then bit her lip, pulling her wand out. "I could try.." She said slowly, and stared at her wand for a moment before waving it dramatically. At first, nothing happened, and then with a small POP! a large flowery sunhat sat in Chase's arms. "Oh! How pretty!" she said giggling. "I try to do stuff like that, but it's hard!" She said laughing, and she put it on the other girl's head. "Wow! You look so pretty!" she said smiling at the girl nicely.

"Oh! Ravenclaw did you say? I'm a Hufflepuff, Named Chase, Chase Moor." She said and she swept herself into an elegant bow, her head almost touching the ground before she looked up at her and winked. "What brings you to Hogsmeade on this fine summer day? Perhaps a drink at the Three Broomsticks, or some delicious chocolate at Honeydukes, or better yet, a trip up to the famous Shrieking Shack!" She giggled happily and stuck out her hand to shake the other girls.

Something about the amount of energy the other girl had made Nerissa feel rather hyper herself. Maybe the other female was naturally that friendly, or perhaps she was having a good day, but the point in it all was, Nerissa now had a hat to shield her from the sun, and she had this… ‘Chase’ girl to thank for that. “Oh-well, gee, thank you,” Nerissa said with a soft smile upon her lips. She tugged at the ends of the hat absentmindedly and watched with amusement as the other redhead introduced herself with a low bow.

Nerissa considered doing the same, but instead chose to offer the Hufflepuff her hand to shake, “I actually just wanted to get out of the house,” she replied simply and honestly, revealing only what needed to be revealed. She was rather bad at interacting with other people her age, but as long as she kept a smile on her face and stuck to the simple greetings and conversations, she figured she would do just fine. “…but now that you mention it I think I’m going to head over to get a cold drink,” she added with a nod of her head, the sunhat flopping forward over one of her eyes when she did so.

“My name is Nerissa Hatts, it is a pleasure to meet you Miss Chase,” Nerissa spoke, introducing herself that time around, figuring that it was only polite to do so. She adjusted her new hat when it started to irritate her, being all lopsided like that. It really wasn’t the sort of thing that Nerissa usually wore, but it was protection from the sunlight, and that had been the point in asking for assistance from the female before her.

Chase grinned at the girl who introduced herself as Nerissa. "it's very nice to meet you Nerissa!" She said giggling. "Hey, mind if I join you? Somehow I always find myself in the Shadow of Hogwarts, just can't stay away I suppose!" She said giggling happily. Not wanting to mention it was her only home left, seeing as her other had been taken so forcefully from her in one horrible night, she wanted to stay as close as she could to her other home for as long as possible, like she was afraid it would go away, afraid it would disappear as fast as her other had.

"I don't even know what all I could do here more, Take a walk, drink butterbeer, and get candy!" She said laughing happily and clapping her hands. "But only if you don't mind me coming, I was gonna head over there myself anyway, but I'd like to talk to you! That hat looks awesome on you! And you seem so nice!" She said laughing, a loud, head thrown back, laugh at the world type laugh, that made her hair stream out behind her and catch the wind.

"I love butterbeer, it always makes me so happy, like, one drink and all of your problems go away, and there is a warm pit in your stomach you know?" She asked looking at her quizzically. "Maybe that's one reason I can't get away from this place, love butterbeer to much!" She laughed happily again, and did a small spin on the spot, as though she had to much energy and she had to release it in one way or the other. "And you get to meet so many new people! Like you! I barely know you, and I know I want to be your friend." She said grinning at her, her eyes alight with joy.

She knew she had a plain to catch in an hour, and yet, the idea of sitting down with a relatively normal person her age to have a drink sounded like it would do her good; she was far too jumpy, and she figured perhaps if she trusted the Hufflepuff that it would help her deal with some of that paranoia that was attacking her. “Sure, you can join me,” she answered, her smile widening slightly. “Thank you, Chase,” Nerissa replied when Chase complimented her once more; it was a bit strange to Nerissa to be receiving compliments from someone she had just met, but the girl’s attitude was rather refreshing compared to all of the gray zombies that were walking about the platform, which wasn’t far from where the two of them were standing.

Nerissa laughed after a moment of listening to Chase speak; she seemed to enjoy talking very much, and she also seemed to enjoy talking really fast. She brought a few of her fingers to her lips in an attempt to stifle her laughter, but it didn’t help much. Nerissa hoped that Chase didn’t assume that she was laughing at her, but she didn’t say anything on the matter. She slipped her hands into her pockets and took a few steps towards their destination, glancing over to her right to see if Chase was walking with her.

She was looking forward to the cool air in the Three Broomsticks; the owner must have installed an air-conditioner or have charmed the place to stay at the same icy temperature during the hotter summer days, because whenever Nerissa needed relief from the sun the most, the Three Broomsticks was always her best bet.

“So what year are you in?” Nerissa asked, trying to make simple, friendly conversation.

"Oh, I'm in seventh year, well I'm going to be! I just can't wait though, Hogwarts is my home ya know?" She said grinning at the other girl, and practically skipping up to meet her again before casually making her way towards the Three Broomsticks as though she hadn't been skipping at all, her hands deep in her pockets, as she strolled easily. "What about you Nerissa?" She asked turning to look at the other girl. "What about your house? See this is why I love going to Hogsmeade, you don't have to be all like 'Oh.. so, do you know where I can get to The Leaky Cauldron and hope they are a wizard.." She said grinning. "Here you just KNOW everyone is a witch or wizard because that's how they know where to go!" She laughed happily and did another small spin.

"Oh, I'm a Hufflepuff!" She said realizing she had asked the other girl's house, and hadn't said her own. Suddenly she heard her name and she spun around, seeing Nick. "Oh hey Nick!" She said grinning happily. "Wow! A whole lot of people are in Hogsmeade today aren't they?" She asked grinning and looking at Nerissa again. "And now we all know each other!" She laughed excitedly and looked down the road. They weren't far from the Three Broomsticks, so she spun around to face Nick. "Hey! Want to go to the Three Broomsticks with us? We were just about to go get a drink." She said smiling happily, glancing up at the sun quickly before pulling out her wand. And after a moment of consideration, she conjured herself a hat just like Nerissa's except her's had a big pink flower in it. Laughing she pulled it onto her head. "There, now the sun doesn't feel so hot, I know why you wanted a hat now Nerissa!" She said laughing and spinning in a circle, loving the way the hat flopped down in just the right places.
