Common Room: Ravenclaw Tower

Postby Avis » August 15th, 2013, 8:33 pm

Ravenclaw Tower serves as the common room for students in Ravenclaw house. The entrance to the common room is located at the top of a spiral staircase on the fifth floor. The door holds no a doorknob or keyhole, but only a bronze knocker in the shape of an eagle. In order to enter the room, a person must answer a riddle asked by the eagle knocker; if they answer incorrectly, they must wait for someone else who gets it right.

The Ravenclaw common room is one of the airiest rooms at Hogwarts and the wind can be heard whistling outside the windows. It is a wide, circular room with a midnight blue carpet, arched windows hung with blue and bronze silks, and a domed ceiling painted with stars. During the day, Ravenclaw students have an excellent view of the school grounds, including the lake, Forbidden Forest, Quidditch pitch, Herbology gardens and the surrounding mountains. The room is furnished with tables, chairs, and bookcases; and by the door leading up to the dormitories stands a tall statue of Rowena Ravenclaw made of white marble.


This is a topic for all the Ravenclaw’s to talk, relax and study in.

Max, Tom and Zach arrived. All three of them were overjoyed to be back in their comfy Common Room. Max stumbled forwards, and still in his normal clothes, launched himself onto his bed.

After what would seem like forever to the first years, who were most certainly not used to climbing staircase upon staircase, they would arrive at a seemingly ordinary door emblazoned with a bronze door-knocker in the shape of an eagle. "Beyond this door is the common room.", he said, gesturing toward it. "We don't use a password like other Houses do. It'll give you a riddle that you need to figure out before you're able to get inside. Don't worry though," Thomas added, looking kindly at a first year girl who'd suddenly blanched, 'Your housemates will always be more than willing to help you work it out."

With an airy wave of his hand, Thomas would lean in toward the door, head tilted faintly to one side and brow furrowed as he listened to the riddle. Quite out of nowhere a cool, clear voice posed a question: I can run but not walk. Wherever I go, thought follows close behind. What am I? "Anyone have any idea?" The sixth year looked encouragingly at the group.

"Run but not walk?" Jacy asked. "How's that working?" Then she blushed as she realised that she had thought loudly again. She looked down at her feet. But the riddle kept her busy. She needed to tell the prefect what she thought. "Um... I'm not quite sure and I guess it's wrong -I mean this riddle has possibly a very simple answer which I missed- but the first thing that comes to my mind is 'nose'. But that can't be, can it?"

Max watched the first years struggle. "I remember we were like that last year." Tom said smiling. "Yeah, Thomas should tell them ... else they may still be there tomorrow morning." Max winked.

Even while Max and Tom were joking, the eagle knocker seemed to momentarily incline its head towards Jacy - though it might have been a trick of the light - and the door swung open. Apparently, 'nose' was the correct answer.

((OOC: Gatsby told me what the answer was and Jacy got it right!))

Jacy couldn't believe it. She was absolutely happy but she didn't dare to show it. Instead she smiled shyly trying to avoid looking directly at the others. But she stole a glance at the older Ravenclaw boys to see who had been joking.

[[You got it, Jacy!]]

While Jacy puzzled the riddle aloud, Thomas had stepped backward a few paces to give her space to think. He could not hold back the small smile that twitched onto his face as the first year worked it out. "Nicely done," he said, nodding encouragingly toward the girl while beckoning the rest to head inside. "Welcome to Ravenclaw tower." His voice carried over their heads as they stepped into a cavernous, circular room, furnished in Ravenclaw's blue and bronze. Drapery hung along the walls "This bit is the common room," he gestured as he spoke, allowing the first years to explore at their own pace. "Our selection of books is extensive, though you'll end up at the library more often than not. It's massive," he added, his eyes lighting up at the the very thought of hundreds of thousands of books at their disposal.

Max woke up to the sound of someone calling "Max! Max! Max!" It was Tom.

"What?" Max groaned. "Get up lazy bones!" Tom said.

"Hmpf!" Max grumbled and they made there way to the Great Hall.

Evanna reached the door to the Claw common room. She reached out and gently tapped on the door with the Eagle knocker.
"What has teeth, but cannot bite?" the riddle was.
It took her a moment to think of the answer, then the piped up "A comb?!"
The Eagles head seemed to nod slightly, then the door opened.
Walking in, Evanna looked around. There were tonnes of books, and she was nearly late for class; she couldn't waste time looking for the ones she needed.
Pulling out her wand, she cried "Accio duelling books!"
About 5 books came shooting towards her, 2 hitting her on the head. She sighed, went up to the 4th year girl's dormitory, and got her bag. She then went back down, retrieved the books, and left for class.
