SOFIE + VICTOIRE
The new school year has brought quite a few changes - new headmaster, a full time Ministry Inspector, new prefects, new quidditch captains...and a new Professor Malloy. Obviously everyone is going to have to adjust to the fact that grouchy Potions Master married the vivacious Care of Magical Creatures - including the newlyweds who have discovered that by the school year's end there will be a little Malloy. Luckily for Victoire this gives her a chance to work with a pre-natal patient during her practical healing placement rather than when she returns to London for an actual job. A nice conversation about reading for the time being, but with Vic's worries buried under the surface and Sofie's filler completely off due to hormones...this could go anywhere.
“I was actually sent her to look into matters here in the school as the reported events of last year called several things into question. My goal is to help ensure that the students here are receiving a quality education with as few issues as possible.” --- to Rose Weasley and Renna Cross, not realizing that he is actively tempting fate in Back in Black!

He was up later than he should have been, okay he never went to bed to be honest. Robbie had taken some extra time to look at the stars late that night and then because he spent time looking at the stars he had to get his studies and homework done. Sure he as a little ahead and could go a day without studying but this year was an OWLs year and the next day didn't have practice and he didn't want to get behind. He didn't have Joyce and Tricia telling him to calm down and study less because they weren't around or rather he was avoiding them still, particularly Tricia.
Thus, when the hour reached late enough, Robert drifted off and fell asleep there in one of the large chairs there in the in the common room having forgotten that the next day was April Fools. He drifted off to sleep and was the perfect target for a prank as he sat there nodded off in a common room chair. Of course, it wasn't a devious Ravenclaw such as his brother or Mallory Quirke his brother's best friend, it was the act of the entity that attacked and caught him unawares.
As the sounds and smoke went off Robert was jolted wide awake much like when his brother knocked his broom out from other him but Robert was like a doe lost in headlight as he looked around with wide eyes hair scrunched up to one side from his slumped form in the chair. Before he was fully awake he was moving and acting getting up and out of the chair. He looked around lost and confused and made for what seemed to be the first logical location the dorm room to get away from the smoke and the noise. He tripped and fell over a few bits of furniture and made for the door.
Of course, as he reached the door he wondered if the problem was outside then, or if there would be more trouble out there, but it was too late for that, and he was still half asleep and incapable of thinking despite being a Ravenclaw. He only hoped and prayed that getting out would be the end of things because if it wasn't he was going to be in trouble as he couldn't think beyond what his actions were. The day was going to be a long day!

Mallory, though a morning person did not like getting up earlier than necessary. She genuinely dreaded the day she had a screaming, near inconsolable infant to care for in the middle of the night. Of course she'd love the child, children were high on her list of after school priorities, somewhere after winning the Quidditch Cup and marriage but definitely before she successfully turned thirty or won the muggle Nobel Prize for something. Her predawn thoughts were interrupted however by the urge to attend to some personal business, hence why she was awake in the first place. Checking her clock and deciding she might as well get up and dressed since it would be a waste of her time to go back to sleep afterwards Mallory got up and attended to her business in addition to treating herself to a nice hot shower. She dried her hair, brushed it out and pulled it back into a sloppy bun before dressing and grabbing her bag and piling her papers into it, she'd organize them in the common room where she wouldn't disturb anyone and just throw whatever was trash into the fire.
She had just reached the last step into the room, just spied her little brother (really he shouldn't protest it anymore, she pretty much treated him and Zhou like family.) passed out in a nearby chair when suddenly all hell seemed to break loose. Something she couldn't see exploded in the middle of common room, the shock of which sent her reeling back and screaming a not so teenage appropriate word she'd learned from her Da. When she pulled herself to her feet, coughing and hacking the first thing she did was hit the floor, all those lessons from the fire brigade in elementary school hitting her like a brick wall. Stay close to the ground and all that. Discarding her bag somewhere not near the stair case she crawled army style, still coughing but calling for Robert.
"ROBBIE!! DUDE!!! WHERE ARE YOU?!" she shouted over the ruckus, inching her way over to where she'd seen him last. She figured he couldn't go far with all this smoke and so reached blindly as if to snag an ankle or some part of his arm, hell she'd settle for inadvertently groping him if it meant she found him safe and in one piece. She grimaced and mentally apologized to Robbie and her boyfriend because she really didn't want to grope the boy she viewed as her only baby brother. (Zhou was her twin, she didn't know why people gave her weird looks when she told them). Maybe it had to do because his eyes were darker than hers...yeah that had to be it.
Coughing more and deciding that it really didn't matter if she was on the floor or not she groped for her wand and waved it around her face as if to dispel the smoke. OH DUH!! She was such an idiot! If she could reach the door she could get all the smoke out of the room and into the castle to let it dissipate against the high ceilings. Coughing and stumbling towards the door as more of her housemates trampled downstairs she reached the door and wrenched it open, falling over another body in the process. She shook herself and looked at who she'd tripped over and offered him a wry smile. "Oh there ya are kiddo, thought I'd lost ya for a sec." she teased.
