Hufflepuff Common Room

Hufflepuff Common Room

The entrance to the common room is concealed in a stack of large barrels in a nook on the right hand side of the kitchen corridor, which is one floor below ground level (this is also known as Hufflepuff Basement). Tap the barrel two from the bottom, middle of the second row, in the rhythm of ‘Helga Hufflepuff’, and the lid will swing open. We are the only house at Hogwarts that also has a repelling device for would-be intruders. If the wrong lid is tapped, or if the rhythm of the tapping is wrong, the illegal entrant is doused in vinegar. Like badgers, we know exactly how to lie low — and how to defend ourselves. Once you've opened the barrel, crawl inside and along the passageway behind it, and you will emerge into the cosiest common room of them all. It is round and earthy and low-ceilinged; it always feels sunny, and its circular windows have a view of rippling grass and dandelions. There is a lot of burnished copper about the place, and many plants, which either hang from the ceiling or sit on the windowsills. The Herbology Professor brings the most interesting specimens (some of which dance and talk) to decorate our room — one reason why Hufflepuffs are often very good at Herbology. Our overstuffed sofas and chairs are upholstered in yellow and black, and our dormitories are reached through round doors in the walls of the common room. Copper lamps cast a warm light over our four-posters, all of which are covered in patchwork quilts, and copper bed warmers hang on the walls, should you have cold feet.

Maeva was seated on an over-stuffed leather armchair, needle in hand, embroidering a blue flower on one of her skirts. She wasn't making much progress, unfortunately, and had pricked her finger.

He walked in from classes and took a seat across from... well, he couldn't remember her name. "How's that going?" he asked, gesturing to the skirt.

She was about to pop her finger in her mouth before she stopped herself on account of that not being a ladylike thing to do. "Mmm?" She looked up, almost surprised. "Oh, this raggedy thing? Not... very well."


Raymond1

"Well, I bet you're coming along better than I could hope to," he said, flashing a grin.

Maeva shrugged, looking around the room for her wand before she realized she'd left them in her room. "I'm very sorry, I must go get my wand," Maeva said, taking the opportunity to leave the conversation and draping her skirt over the back of the chair.


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year

He stood as well. "Wait, I'm sorry. Have I said something to make you uncomfortable?"

"I've pricked my finger and I'd rather not get blood on my skirt and wait for it to heal on it's own," Maeva replied as she disappeared up a set of stairs. A few moments later, she returned, peeking her head out from behind a wall to see if he was still there.


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year

 – 03:27, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Sort of defeated, he had returned to his original seat, and was staring at the fire.


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year

 – 03:30, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Feeling like she may have been too harsh, she walked back over to her project. "My apologies,"


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year

 – 03:32, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"No, please, the apologies are mine to make," he said, turning to face her. "I'm... a little overenthusiastic at times. I'm sure your betrothed wouldn't have liked it, either."


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 03:37, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"Oh, I'm actually not betrothed to anyone," She replied thoughtlessly, and then quickly added, "So what brings you down here?" in hopes he wouldn't pay any mind.


Raymond1

 – 03:40, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

He visibly exhaled to know that he wouldn't have offended someone else as well. "I'm a Hufflepuff," he said with a grin. "Same as you. This is where we usually congregate, is it not? Or have the badgers selected somewhere else?"


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 03:43, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

She laughed, feeling a bit stupid. "No, we haven't." She said, "Though you'll probably find a bunch of hungry younger years in the kitchens, trying to sneak food,"


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year

 – 03:44, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

He chuckled. "Don't know why I ever stopped doing that. I made off with quite a bit in my youth. Could probably get even more."


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 03:52, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

She shrugged, smiling politely. She sat down and took her needle back in hand, not making any attempt to keep the conversation going.


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year
WIP
 – 03:54, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

He observed her for a moment. "What's your name? I've seen you around a lot, but can't remember your name."


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 03:59, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"Maeva Fairchild." She replied without looking up. "And your name is.... Raymond, I believe?"


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year

 – 04:01, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"Raymond Lisieux," he said, the French accept slipping in full. It backed off as he added. "I've got a sister in our year too? Adrienne."


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 04:07, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"I don't think I've had the pleasure of meeting her. I'm sure I've seen her before, however."


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year

 – 04:09, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"She's a Slytherin," he said, shrugging.


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 04:12, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"Oh! She's your sister. I... see the family resemblance." She dutifully kept her eyes focused on her sewing.


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year
WIP
 – 04:13, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

He chuckled. "Then you are quite observant. She takes entirely after Papa, and me after Maman. What about you? Do you have any siblings?"


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 04:18, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

She considered lying for the third time that day, which was an all time high for her. "Yes. He's a seventh year. He actually might know your sister; He's a slytherin as well."


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year
WIP
 – 04:19, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"What kind of a brother is he?" he asked.


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 04:22, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

She laid her project down for the moment, taking the time to choose her words delicately. "I wouldn't really be able to tell you. I don't know him all that well myself." She gave him an apologetic smile.


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year
WIP
 – 04:23, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"And who knows you well, chérie?" he asked, unable to stop himself.


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 04:27, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

"I... I'm r-really not sure." She replied, clearly flustered and unsure of whether or not he actually wanted a response.


Raymond1

Raymond Lisieux -Hufflepuff Fifth Year
WIP
 – 04:30, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

He instantly felt bad. He wasn't used to be so put off, but he could tell he wasn't really wanted any further. "My apologies," he said, standing. "I should be getting up to my room to do some studying anyway. It was lovely to be acquainted with you, Miss Fairchild."


Lily2

Maeva Fairchild -Fifth Year
"Politeness is wise."
 – 04:37, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded politely as he left, recovering just enough to say "And I, you, Mister Lisieux," without stuttering or any obvious amount of blushing.
