The Quidditch Pitch/First Task

{{{Picture size}}}

The Quidditch Pitch appears how it usually does... except that as each team of Champions emerge from the tent, the grassy pitch changes to accommodate the task before them. The stands, high enough for the other students to be out of harms way, has a few protective spells cast over them to ensure maximum safety for those who look onward.

Gryffindor Champions[]

Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - ~
Karina and Grizel are the first to emerge from the Champions’ tent, to the mighty roar of the student body’s excited applause. Among the first things to notice is that the Quidditch Pitch has been renovated completely to create an environment favorable to Gryffindor’s assigned beast. It looks akin to a jungle, with massive trees and shrubs. For the benefit of those on the stands, there’s a giant screen high above to have a better view of the Gryffindor Champions and the beast they’re meant to subdue. However, for the Champions to even catch a glimpse, they’ll have to climb the highest tree of them all in the dead center of the pitch.

Before they can dwell on their surroundings for long, a distant roar reverberates around the Pitch. The trees shake and the ground rumbles. When the roar fades, a soft humming echoes, and it sounds distinctly to each of the Champions like their favorite songs. Out of their line of sight is a Manticore, angry and itching for blood at the smell of its prey - the Champions themselves. It’s circling around the center of the pitch, seemingly protecting something. But what is it that it’s protecting?

She'd frown, quickly taking in her surroundings. "So, looks like get past the creature, get to the center, and grab whatever it's protecting. Let's both get scarce and try to sneak in to get the prize and whichever one it goes after distracts it while the other goes in." She'd cast a disillusion charm on herself.

Grizel and Karina's disillusionment charms are both successful, but the sound of their voices garners the attention of the Manticore, whose soft singing stops. Its head snaps up and it bears its teeth, roaring again. It knows Grizel and Karina are nearby. However, rather than pursuing the threats, it continues to circle around the object of its affection: a small, jeweled box.

She'd cast a spell to muffle the sound around her to help her sneakiness and move away from where Grizel was parallel to where the beast was roaming. She'd move away a bit then try to sneak towards the beast hoping to come at it from as much the opposite side as possible from her partner.

Karina's spell is a success. The sound of her steps are muffled by her incantation, giving her ample protection as she begins to approach the Manticore. However, Grizel's endeavors are not successful. In her own careful walk, she accidentally steps on a twig, which is enough to set off alarms inside the Manticore. Its roar rings loudly again, growing agitated as it senses the approaching threats. Rather than charge now, it starts digging its paws into the dirt of the terrain, creating a hole to dig in the small chest it's protecting. Because it's in the middle of the pitch, there are no trees around it for about 30 feet from all angles. There are small rocks and some shrubs, but aside from that, there is nothing to provide the Champions with any kind of protection should they try a direct assault and retrieval.

Well this wasn't going as planned...the beast was supposed to be coming after one of them...not digging in and creating defenses. Apparently it was smarter than she'd given it credit for. Since it was distracted with digging Karina would sneak to the edge of the trees and try a non-verbal accio chest on the off chance it hadn't been enchanted to resist that type of spell. If it flew towards her, great she'd grab it and take off back into the woods. If it didn't work she'd wait to see if her partner wanted to try a direct assault from two sides or had a better plan.

Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 21:44, July 29, 2020 (UTC)
Unfortunately, Karina's attempt - however smart - is not successful. In the time between her attempt and Grizel's attempts, the Manticore has created a deep hole in the ground, about twenty feet, meant to hide the chest before it takes off to deal with the Champions. However, before it can do so, Grizel's Oppugno is successful. Tens of rocks fly dangerously towards the Manticore, and because it's such a large creature, it doesn't leap out of the way in time to avoid all the rocks. Most of them strike it on its hanging underbelly, causing it to roar in pained anger. The wounds are small but plentiful. When it whirls its human head in search of the source, it sees Karina and mistakenly perceives her to be the cause of its pain. It bares its teeth, but before it charges, it swings the chest with its tail into the hole. It then tears off in the hunt for Karina.

OOC: Please note that the Manticore has been modified in that its tail's tip has been cut off, meaning it cannot fatally inject the champions with its poison.

It was a Manticore (she hadn't known until she saw it)...and it was coming straight for her. She'd tear off back into the woods knowing she had to keep it distracted while not dying long enough for her partner to get the chest. She hoped her disillusion charm and muffling spell would help her hide though she wasn't certain what type of abilities the Manticore had that might help it follow or track her. After running a few yards she'd turn back towards it and conjure some small birds with her wand "Avis" and send them swarming at the Manticore to hopefully give it something substantial other than herself to attack. If it stopped to attack the birds she'd try to slow down and hide in the trees but if not she'd keep running and try something else to keep it from mauling her.


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 20:08, July 30, 2020 (UTC)
Karina's spells give her a massive edge in avoiding the Manticore, but given its stronger sense of smell, it tracks her accordingly. As they run through the jungle, with the Manticore deviating only slightly as it runs around the trees trying to follow her trail, it's on the verge of catching up and nipping her when Karina's Avis is successfully cast. The swarm of small birds fly straight towards the Manticore, which makes it slow until it stops right in its tracks. Its melodious song halts as it sniffs in the air, briefly distracted by the birds flying around it. For a moment, the Manticore forgets all about Karina, providing her with enough time to try and hide in the trees. In the brief reprieve from the Manticore's murderous hunt, Grizel has an opportunity to try and retrieve the chest. However, her spell is not successful. As a mater of fact, it's like the spell bounces off the chest, like it's protected against magic.

OOC: I apologize for my tardiness! I had a busy morning. I should be GMing more diligently here on out. :)

She'd do her best to hide in the trees where she could watch the beast. When it looked like it was going to head back towards the center and the chest she'd cast non-verbal Incendio Maxima spells on the trees between the manticore and her partner to try to keep it from going that way. Hopefully the creature wasn't immune to fire or something...most creatures didn't like it and would move away from it so it seemed like a safe bet...and since it seemed to be sniffing the air a lot maybe it was tracking by smell in which case some smoke would be great.

Template:Grizel

Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 22:02, July 30, 2020 (UTC)
Karina's Incendio Maxima is not successful. The manticore stays rooted in its spot, sniffing at the tens of small birds flittering around it. Meanwhile, Grizel's strategy of sliding down the hole is successful and she manages to land safely at the bottom of the hole, albeit covered in a lot of dirt. However, before she can get her hands on the chest, a shimmering light appears, slowly solidifying until there's a tangible version of Godric Gryffindor himself, standing tall and proud behind the chest. "Grizel!" his voice booms. The ghost smiles sagely and nods once, as a greeting. "My champion! You and Karina have proven yourself wonderful assets to Gryffindor House. Your demonstration of pure strength and wits is exactly what I expected from my house's champions!" he commends. "I present to you an opportunity to win one extra point for your house. However, I must warn you - if you choose this option, you and your partner will have to work together. This may cost you more time. Knowing this, how do you wish to proceed, my champion?" In the distance, a loud singing resumes. The birds have all flown away and its attention has once again repurposed to the hunt for Karina.

Apparently the trees couldn't light? She wasn't sure what was going on but apparently her fire spells weren't working. She'd target the Manticore with a Full-Body bind curse to try to trip it up some and make hinder its mobility, then without looking if the spell hit take off again into the forest to continue the distraction.

Karina's spell is successful. The Manticore is paralyzed before it even notices Karina, providing her with the time she needs to move away. In the mean time, Godric Gryffindor stares Grizel down with an unreadable look once she makes her question. "Once you lay your hands upon your chest, the task will promptly conclude and my offer will become void," he informs her. "Your challenge, my Champion, is to cast a successful Ducklifors on me."

OOC: Gonna attach a screenshot of the randomizer since freezing the Manticore is, dare I say, fairly important.

Karina reaches Grizel fairly quickly, who emerges with a successful Ascendio, leaving behind a disappointed Godric Gryffindor. When she emerges from the hole, she does so to a loud round of applause from the spectating wizards. Silas Chevalier's voice reverberates around the Pitch, declaring Gryffindor House third place. As if on cue, the students cheer louder, even as the champions are ushered towards the exit before the Manticore breaks free from the paralyzing spell.


Hufflepuff Champions[]

Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 00:03, July 27, 2020 (UTC)
As Lilith and Jonathan walk out of the Champions tent, they would see that the beloved Quidditch pitch's grassy area had changed into a muggle lion zoo enclosure. With amber grass littered across the floor, multiple rocks jutted outwards and upwards, some having ledges. Should they walk to the top of the small platform that the tent led out to, they would come across a sleeping Nundu in a crater below them. Undisturbed by their presence, the Nundu clutched in it's sleep a small cubic box.

OOC: I'm aware of how dangerous Nundu's are canonically. In this instance, the Nundu is a rare case of a domesticated one. Owned by a trusted magizoologist, the Ministry has lent it to Hogwarts for the task. It does not possess the Nundu's signature toxic breath and has been weakened significantly beforehand. Your characters will NOT know this beforehand, so they shall need to figure it out.

He recognized it immediately, and threw up a hand to stop Lilith. "This thing's got poison breath," he said, stunned they were being made to take it on. He immediately started thinking of what they could do to subdue the beast so they could get the box, unharmed. "But aside from that, it's basically just a big cat."

A big cat, Lily mused at the thought, "Maybe it would like a belly rub?" She questioned, although she knew too well that that wasn't the case. "Do you know a spell that makes us immune to poison? I know there's Reparifors but that's only after we've gotten poisoned..." For once, Lily actually seemed to occupy a place in reality rather than being completely out of it.

The two young wizards' conversation caused the nundu to stir slightly, it's stretches being evident that it was about to awake and walk around. Should they be any louder and they might just miss the silent creeping of it upon them.

Since the beast was waking up, he decided to just go for his plan. He pointed down to a rock nearby, and attempted to transfigure it into a convincing squirrel. He figured a mouse might be too small and not get the attention of the nundu.

OOC: my apologies. I figured since they hadn't done any actual magic yet... there wouldn't be anything to GM

Following what Jonathan was doing, Lily cast a Quietus charm on both of them. Quieting their speech and movements as she snuck off in the opposite direction to where Jonathan was transfiguring the rock.

Jonathan's transfiguration spell was a success; the small pebble turning into a red squirrel. Under the guise of the successful quietus charm, the nundu was unaware of Lily moving in the opposite direction. Opening it's eyes, the nundu looked around. It took it a few seconds before it focused on the squirrel before jumping up at it, still unaware of both Champions' presence.

He cast a Disillusionment Charm on himself, so the nundu wouldn't be able to see him, and made sure to keep his body away from breathing range of the nundu. He flicked his wand at the squirrel, casting a very quiet Hover Charm, and moved the squirrel into the big cat's line of vision, ready to have the squirrel dart away as soon as the nundu went for it.

She continued on the approach, ever so slightly creeping forward in hopes of snatching the box from the empty nest as the Nundu chased after Jonathan's squirrel. She eyed over to Jonathan to check in at how he was doing.

With all spells successful, it seemed too good to be true... which it was. Temporarily transfixed by Jonathan's squirrel, the nundu's attention was diverted at the movement that came from Lily. Growling, it disappeared behind some rocks, it's incredibly silent nature ensuring that neither Champion knew where it was.

He frowned. It went for the squirrel... and nothing happened to the squirrel. It should have died. Something must be up with this nundu. He couldn't see where it had gone, but he flicked his wand and murmured "Avis!" Picturing a few sparrows bursting forth from his wand, hoping to give the cat something else to chase.

Although Jonathan's Avis spell worked without flaw, it appeared that they did nothing - or perhaps the nundu was hiding. Lily's Appare Vestigium spell also worked, the paw prints of the beast showing it's path clearly... until they seemingly vanish.

He frowned. Nundus could make themselves invisible... but they couldn't fly. So where had the prints gone? He had another idea, and looked around to see if there was any foliage around. Even just a leaf would work for his next plan.

Lily followed the paw prints of the beast until they came to an end where she stood, scratching the back of her neck and shrugging toward Jonathan. She took a quick look around for any sign of the Nundu or the box it was protecting, being careful to to make much noise or sudden movements.

Contrary to Jonathan's guess, the Nundu has jumped to a higher ledge. Aware of the Champions' presence, it stalks from above, watching them in search of any signs of it or the box. In the wake of the Nundu's "disappearance", a shimmering sound comes from Jonathan and Lilith's left. A hazy figure stands there, a little difficult to see until it moves towards a shaded part of the arena. There in full glory is Helga Hufflepuff. "Champions," she begins, with a warm and welcoming smile to her representing students, "You have done Hufflepuff House proud. Because of your valiant efforts leading to this confrontation, I'd like to offer you both a once-in-a-task opportunity to gain another point. However, do be warned: your task will be time-consuming and may lead to a final place result. Knowing this, my Champions; how do you wish to proceed?"

He glanced over at Lilith, not sure of what to make of this. It almost felt like a trap. He shook his head slightly in her direction, but also had a questioning look in his eyes.

She usually wasn't one for extra work but it was an extra way to get ahead and it was Helga Hufflepuff after all, it had to be...unless she snuck some mushrooms before the task? No, she didn't think so, "What is it?" She whispered, being careful and keeping an eye on the Nundu as it prowled above them.

With the question being asked by Lilith, Helga continued to smile. "Quite simply, really," She said, voice warm and comforting. Perhaps even inviting. "Cast a Ducklifors charm on me and gain a point towards your total for this challenge." Still armed with her warm smile, she looked upon her two Champions unexpectedly.

As Helga distracted the Champions, the Nundu stalked to the box once more. As it moved silently, neither of the Champions would have seen it move there. Curling against the box, it shuffled slightly into the shade.

He sighed, frustrated. Picturing their Founder with the head of a female Mallard duck, he flicked his wand at her. "Ducklifors."

Why the Ducklifors jinx, she thought as she noticed that the Nundu had left her line of sight, "Shit, where did it go?" She said, this time a little louder than before, clearly giving up on being silent. As a last ditch effort, she had an idea, "Accio!" She cast, picturing the box in her mind as she tried to summon it toward her.

If Jonathan thought gaining the extra point would be that easy, he'd be sorely mistaken. As his spell came close to Helga, the ghost of the Fat Friar appeared, taking the brunt of the spell and leaving him with the head of a duck. "If you thought it'd be that easy, my love, you'd be wrong," Helga said with a warm laugh, "I'd also suggest talking to your partner next time; you might be stuck doing this now." Were they? Not really, but Helga's words were intentionally misleading.

Lilith's Accio spell worked... somewhat. Under the tight grips of the Nundu, the box shook as it attempted to come towards her. With a little growl - one that gave away it's location - the Nundu pulled it back. It's eyes settled on Lilith with a scowl, clearly not intending to give her the box anytime soon.

"Got you..." She locked eyes with the Nundu, "Jonathan, it's over here..." She shouted towards her teammate while mentally reviewing the spells she could use to obtain the rattling box...nothing came to mind exactly...unless...she pulled off one of her shoes and remembered one of the spells Professor Van der Hoek taught last year and attempted to use the switching spell on the shoe and the box.

As Dante and Iseult walk out of the Champions tent, they would see that the Quidditch pitch is nothing more than a great body of water with a few islands littered throughout. Unlike the other beasts, the Horned Serpent that ran wild within the arena was awake, the occasional appearance of it's horns breaking the water's surface being indicative of that. It was unaware of their presence, evident by the way it leisurely swam about. At the furthest island away from the two Champions was a chest, one that seemed of importance to the beast as it seemed to focus around the island particularly.

Iseult and Dante had discussed the likelihood of a horned serpent - so they're pretty well prepared for this. The plan is simple and effective - Iseult will be the distraction, luring the Serpent away so that Dante can get the chest. She casts a supersensory charm on both of them, followed by a muffliato on herself and Dante, so to keep their presence unknown to the Serpent. "If you need anything, just think it, and I'll do it." She says to him with a confident smirk, "We've got this, sugar."

"Thank you," Dante muffled, smiling at Iseult in return of her kindness. Although Iseult casted spells on them both, he kept quiet while observing the movement of water as the Horned Serpent swam. Just in case the charms weren't preformed correctly—he would find that out soon. His eyes then casted on the chest from afar. That was his task, and he started imagining what the quickest and safest route would be (supposedly via island-hopping) to get there.

Both spells were successfully cast by Iseult, allowing the horned serpent to not hear them and thus locate them. It did, however, hear a slight buzz as a result of the muffliato spell. A little agitated, it swam closer to the island it guarded, it's horns submerging underwater once more.

She gives Dante a look, and then a nod. The Serpent is underwater, and she needs to draw it out so Dante can swim over. She casts a blue-sparks charm aimed towards the centre of the arena - not too close to blow cover, but also away from the far island in hopes of Dante being able to get in the water.

Although each action was to be performed with much thought, Dante also realized his speed and instincts are likewise important. As soon as Iseult casted her spell, Dante doesn't hesitate to use his wand to cast the bubble-head charm on himself. He dived into the water in a quick motion, knowing he can rely on the supersensory and muffilato spells in case the blue sparks don't serve as a proper distraction. If all else fails, he's got his wand tight in his grip.

If the two were to watch how the horned serpent reacted to the blue sparks, they would see how it swam at an incredible speed to where it happened. Emerging from the water in an attempt to grab whatever it was, it was then that the beast became aware of the two Champions. Submerging underwater again, it's eyes and horns remained over the water level, watching the two of them carefully. All spells had been casted perfectly - as expected from competent Ravenclaw's - but now came the hard part of distracting it.

She's acutely aware that Dante still has a way to go. Think. That's when she remembers a spell she learnt from Beauxbatons - Iseult quickly scrambles along the shore, picking up four pebbles and holding them in her palm. She casts an Avifors on them, followed by an Engorgio - her aim is simple - to control the transfigured birds with her wand as a method of luring the serpent away from Dante.

Being a horned serpent's tasty snack was not on Dante's bucket list, so he remained weary and slow as the creature's attention moved from the sparks to the competitors. Instead of swimming forward and into the horned serpent's vicinity, he carefully dived down deeper (as it seemed to be remaining close to the surface). He didn't dare cast a spell and draw more attention on himself, hoping whatever Iseult was doing would move the creature away from Dante's path.

As the two intended, the distraction did drive the horned serpent to focus more on the birds and, by extension, Iseult. Unaware of Dante in the water, it began to stalk it's way towards the young witch, the beast's characteristic low note to signify danger rumbling throughout the arena.

Wonderful. Iseult uses her wand to control the birds - making spinning motions with the aim of having the birds spin around the serpent's head - her aim to confuse it and chase it's tail around a little - ideally stopping it from coming any closer. She knows the incantation to make them attack the serpent - but holds off, she doesn't want to attack it for fear of escalating a potentially controlled situation.

Although his grin couldn't be seen deep underwater, it grew as he watched the monster speed towards Iseult. Nice. As long as she kept it distracted and confused—which he trusted her to do—they would be fine. Beginning his quick swim towards the chest, he considered a spell to make the chase faster. He doesn't dare right away as the horned serpent may catch sight of it, so Dante's reliance goes to all those old swim lessons his dad made him take during the summers.

As both of the Champions would know, the horned serpent was an intelligent beast and thus it should be of no surprise to either of them on how it would react to the various things happening to it. Confused by the birds enough to get distracted and swim in a circle a few times, the horned serpent eventually caught sight of Iseult and focused on her, the birds becoming more of a nuisance. It still hadn't noticed Dante, albeit one dive into the water and surely it would sense his presence.

She opts not to get the birds to attack, instead switching to an Arresto Momentum to slow the serpent down, followed by an Immobulus to stop it coming any closer. Iseult knows that if the spells work, they won't hold for too long, so she hopes it's enough time for Dante to get to the island, at least.

As Dante kept on near the deepest part of the makeshift lake, he refused to let his nerves get the best of him. He remained sure not to perform any spells underwater for a variety of reasons; firstly, he was unsure how effective they may be in his distracted state and, secondly, he didn't want to drive extra attention on himself. He could only hope that, as he swam, Iseult would keep the serpent distracted. He kept swimming, considering the spells he should cast once on the farthest island.

Iseult's Arresto Momentum spell was successful, her Immobulus not, however. Significantly slowed down, the horned serpent dove underwater in an attempt to shake the spell off. It was now that it caught sight of Dante but the spell had it's full attention. Thrashing around in the water, it was largely debilitated which would allow for both Champions to greatly increase their progress towards the chest.

She takes this moment to attack - turning back to her enlarged birds, she casts an Oppugno at the serpent - using the splashes to determine where the serpent may be in it's slowed-down state. She's sure she can get at least a clean hit considering the size of the serpent. It's a gamble, but there are four birds and one serpent - if the spell works and her aim was accurate, she could have bought Dante some more time.

Seeing the horned serpent thrash around the water and notice Dante at the same time, he quickly realized this was a 'now or never' sort of ordeal. He swam with as much strength as he had in him, not letting himself lose focus beyond his plan when going for the chest. If he were to safely make it to the island without being attacked, he knew he'd try to cast the hydro-kinetic spell, encasing the serpent in a floating sphere of water to protect Iseult and himself. Difficult? Perhaps, but he knew his proficiency in charms and drawn out days of practice could heighten the chances of it working.

Iseult's Opugno is successful, striking the serpent on the side of its neck and debilitating it. However, in the process, the Horned Serpent takes notice of Dante as he swims towards the chest. In its slowed-down state, it isn't as fast as it once was, much less with the bleeding gash, but it continues regardless, with the intent to attack Dante and submerge him in the water.

Dante felt a sense of relief that no one could hear him underwater, as he screamed some curses that might lead to point deduction from his head of house. In a nervous state, his first instinct wasn't to cast a spell, but rather to try to swim up to the surface quickly and morph into his animagus form—a phoenix. If he could fly up, he'd hopefully be able to prevent being drowned. The chest could still be his!

Iseult hears his curses - despite not being under the water with him, and smiles. When she hears his plan - she gets her wand out - the second he's out, she plans on casting a glacius! on the lake - her aim is to freeze it, since the horned serpent is underwater, freezing the surface will hopefully buy them some more time. She's careful to wait until he's totally out before casting, though.

It seemed the ingenuity of Ravenclaw hadn't been lost in the years since Hogwarts had been founded. As Dante flew to the sky leaving the horned serpent in the water, Iseult's glacius spell freezing the water that surrounded the islands. The horned serpent, helpless where it was frozen, thrashed as much as it could to release itself. The box, not defenceless, now offered itself to a clear shot.

Oh my god. It worked! She can't believe it. But she's sure it won't last long - the serpent will break the ice soon - she cups her hands and yells to Dante, "It's clear! The box is ours, Dante!" - All she can do now is watch and hope he can grab it in time.

This was it! Dante was in clear shot to the chest, and, while the horned serpent was trapped underwater, he could get it without any more bashing with the sea monster. He attempted to fly to the farthest island, hoping to finally change back into his human form and snatch his treasure.

As the two were primed to get the box and win, a shimmering in the centre island between them became more intense until the ghost of Rowena Ravenclaw stood there. "My Champions," Her voice was loud and clear, "The ingenious magic you have both displayed is second to none; I can only commend you. I offer you a chance to gain an extra point to your total, however this may cost you valuable time."

Dante grinned at the Ravenclaw founder. It was a similar grin to the one he had shown her when being chosen as a champion. Being so close to the box in quick time, he hope he had made her proud (although he doubted he'd ever find out from her). Not wanting to waste any more minutes—eager as he was—he yelled to Iseult, "I think we're good, right?"

Dante waved a goodbye to Rowena Ravenclaw, but that was all he could manage before going back to the task at hand. He walked a few paces and reached for the chest. His initial reaction was to hold it up high for Iseult and everyone to see, then look around at the large, cheering crowd for Vilja and Freddie.

When Tristan and Tate emerge from the tents behind the Quidditch Pitch, the first thing they will notice is that the Quidditch Pitch looks nothing like it usually does. Given the dangerous nature of their assigned beast, even the student body has been moved around the stands for their own safety, with only medical personnel and trained Magizoologists exposed to the full event. In terms of their surroundings, the champions will quickly notice that rather than standing on the sandy grounds of the Pitch, they’re on one of very few levelled surfaces.

Around them are jagged rocks and very few places to step on, as the spaces between the high rocks have been converted into a dangerous river with strong currents that create powerful waves when colliding with the jagged rocks. At the very opposite end of the Pitch lies the purpose of their task - a 35-feet-long Basilisk. Because of the pressure of the water and the loud sounds it creates, it has yet to become aware of the presence of the champions. As it is, the beast seems to be in deep slumber, curled in what could be a protective stance.

Tristan recognises the snake immediately - of course he does. "This is a good time to tell you I'm a parselmouth," he says to Tate. "This is easy. Close your eyes, until I say, though." He points his wand and casts obscuro, hoping to blindfold the Basilisk at least until he can convince it to not kill them. Then he casts sonorus on himself, and calls out "Hello!" in parseltongue. "What's your name?"

Tate was never one to shy away from a challenge, but with a Basilisk 35 feet in length, he just might have had it not been for Tristan. Having a fear of snakes and by extension Basilisks, he was more than willing to let Tristan take the lead on this one. "This is perfect timing to mention it." He said in a low voice as he closed his eyes, waiting on Tristan's call to action while staying in a ready stance. The parseltongue was unrecognizable to Tate, for all he knew Tristan could be asking the creature out on a date.

In spite of the loud noises of the river, the Basilisk still hears Tristan. Its eyes open and it lifts its head, seeking out the Parselmouth but being unsuccessful due to Tristan's successful Obscuro. It hisses, angered by the clouded vision, and shakes its head in an effort to slide it off. When it doesn't, it hisses again, loud and angry. The Basilisk doesn't stray from where it's curled - largely to protect the locked box its surrounding - but it does hiss back at Tristan. "My name issss Bixby."

Tristan takes the angry hiss to mean that the blindfold is on, and opens his eyes. He doesn't die immediately, so he guesses he must have been successful. "Hello, Bixby," he calls over. "You're gorgeous, did you know? What's that you've got there?" He's not an idiot - he knows what snake body language is common, and this isn't. He switches to English to tell Tate. "He's protecting something. I'll see if I can convince him to let us have it?"

With the Basilisk being quite far away, Tate only really heard the faint hissing over the sounds of the river. He wasn't really listening enough though to begin with, figuring if anything was said that Tristan would just translate for him anyways. Eyes still shut and not even sure if he was looking in the right direction to begin with, Tate nodded his head. "That sounds like a good idea, if you can convince him then that makes our job easier."

The initial silence from the Basilisk is thoughtful, like it's trying to suss out Tristan's intentions. It isn't a fool. When he makes his inquiry, it hisses loudly again. "My precioussss," Bixby instinctively curls further in, "Flattery will get you nowhere, wizard."

Tate began thinking of a solution for how the two boys could distract the creature, with Tristan presumably whispering sweet nothings to Bixby the Basilisk. "What if you teleported to different areas of the pitch and tried angering it enough to follow you? Like if you keep moving where your apparition forms while the Basilisk is in pursuit it might piss it off enough to keep following you and give me a chance to sneak up and grab whatever it's protecting."

Bixby doesn't understand Tristan when he addresses Tate, but she's becoming increasingly agitated as he utters the unknown, perplexing language. In its growing agitation and fury, it shakes its giant head and the blindfold slowly loosens a little more. "Sssssilence! Don't try to manipulate me," the Basilisk objects. "You will not be getting the box, wizard. Accept your defeat now or face the consequences."

OOC: Because the little terrain that's available are pointy, unleveled rocks, there will be a massive risk in apparating around the arena. The champions can try, but it will be dangerous. Just reminding you of that!

"The terrain isn't exactly ideal for apparating," Tristan disagrees, watching the Basilisk carefully. "Do you know the bridge-making spell?" He leaves it at that - Tate's not dumb, he'll figure it out. For now he's a bit more occupied with calming down the snake. "I don't want to manipulate you," he says, making his tone as soothing as he can manage in a language as harsh as parseltongue. "Are you happy here, with these people who don't understand you?

"I wouldn't know, my eyes are still closed." He responded sarcastically, forgetting the situation they were in for a moment and letting his more snarky and joking side come out. For a brief moment, Tate opened his eyes just so he could direct himself properly. Turning to the raging river, Tate cast the bridge-making spell in order to give them the ability to cross it when necessary without dying. "Perhaps Defodio or Deprimo could be of use?"

"I am the Queen of the Serpentssss! I am free, and I will kill you if you and your little wizard friend come closer!" Her fury is enough to shake the blindfold off her in her subsequent attempts. She twists her body in search of Tristan and Tate, and when she sees them, she hisses loudly before uncurling and disappearing briefly into the water. A meaningful silence fills the arena as the Basilisk submerges itself completely in the dangerous currents. Because of how high the water is and how powerful the consequent waves are, there is no telling where Bixby might be. Without the blindfold on her, it's especially dangerous to cross any bridges right now while protecting their sight. However, Tate's spell is a success, and he is able to create a bridge that is only slightly wobbly as the waves crash into it.

Tristan's about to reply to Tate when he spots the blindfold coming loose, and has just enough time to shout a warning and turn on his heel so he doesn't make eye contact. He'd rather not be killed by a snake, thank you. He conjures a mirror just in time to spot its tale disappearing beneath the churning water, the box left behind. "She's in the water," he tells Tate, before turning back around. He can't see her. "If I die, transfigure a rooster and make it crow - but only if I die. Bixby," he switches to parseltongue, the tone of his voice making it clear that he's stressed. "What did they tell you to make you do this? Please reconsider. You don't want to go back to a life of captivity, do you? I can help you. You can reach your true potential as Queen of the Serpents. Just let us cross the river?"

Tate only had a split second to react in time after casting the bridge spell. Turning around as quickly as he could and squeezing his eyes shut tight. Once given the clear that the Basilisk had submerged itself in the river, he turned just enough to be able to look through the mirror and subsequently see Tristan. "F*ck waiting for you to die, I want that thing dead before it kills one of us." Tate was then quick to try in transfiguring a rooster, figuring it'd be smarter to have one at the ready than sit waiting for a last ditch effort in survival.

Tate's spell to conjure a rooster is not successful. Meanwhile, Bixby re-emerges about 60 feet from them, making a noise that sounds a lot like an angry shriek as it tries circling around different rocks. Because it's slithering in favor of the currents, it's moving a lot faster than usual. Tate and Tristan will have to move quickly if they hope to not get eaten by the Basilisk. "My job is to protect my chest! I will honor it and accept my freedom when I have eliminated all threats."

"I said don't," he whirls on Tate, partially to make his annoyance known and partially to avoid making eye contact with the snake. He doesn't think it's a good idea to blindfold it again, not with how angry it is already. "And if you do, maybe try to get the spell right? It's not exactly hard." He switches to parseltongue. "Do you really think they'll free you?" he asks, changing tactic. "You're nothing more than a slave to them. Can you really not see your chains? Don't you know your existence is illegal? How do you know they won't kill you?"

There was maybe one thing worse than ignoring Tristan's instructions, and that was ignoring his instructions and the spell not working. Live and learn, he supposed. Seeing how annoyed Tristan got sparked an anger in Tate that he knew was bound to come out eventually in the tournament. Today just so happened to be the day. "Your stupid f*cking snake talk isn't working, wrap it up otherwise I'm letting you die." His tone was rather pointed, clearly frustrated at Tristan's insistence on something that was seemingly angering the Basilisk even more. "Glacius Duo!" He shouted, aiming his wand at the Basilisk while still attempting to keep his eyes covered, hoping if anything Tristan's tactic would serve as enough of a distraction for his spell to make contact.

By the time Tate can perform his spell, Bixby has already crossed the river's various streams until it's rapidly approaching the duo. It's about 10 feet away and already leaning in to drag both Champions into the water by their robes when Tate's spell strikes it. It hisses loudly as it begins to freeze, starting on its underbelly and making its way up its body. Had it not been for Tristan's distraction, his endeavors wouldn't have been successful. "You are your friend are murderers! You will kill me and you will steal my chest - I cannot allow you to do either one. You are worse than my master is, wizard! You are a liar, a fool, and a -" Bixby hisses loudly, only falling silent once the ice has finally reached its head. Bixby is encased in a thin layer of ice, which will only sustain her long enough to allow the Champions to move from the flat surface they're on. If they move quickly and manage to successfully create more bridges to connect each of the spaced-out rocks, they may have just enough time to reach the unprotected chest in the middle of the pitch - assuming nothing else goes wrong and Lady Luck is on their side.

While not exactly what he had hoped would happen during their first task, at least Tate hadn't become an appetizer for an overgrown snake. He was satisfied with his work, but he knew that the ice wouldn't be able to hold Bixby for long. "You're welcome, now let's move." He commanded, not wanting to wait to see what kind of mood the Basilisk would be in once it had broken free of its icy prison. Taking off running, Tate made it to the first bridge before he tried casting the spill to build the next one.

Tristan's quite clearly pissed, but he follows Tate anyway, grabbing his arm briefly as they pause to create the other bridge. "You're a fucking idiot," he says, though it's mostly fuelled by his own attachment to basilisks. "She was almost on our side, and now she's going to kill us." He lets go so the next bridge spell can be cast.

Tate's spell is successful in the successive attempts, but when they're one bridge away from reaching the middle of the pitch, the moment they've dreaded arrives, because Bixby's attempt to break through the ice is successful and she's slithering towards the Champions that she devices a good way away from her. Because she's going against the currents, it'll take a little longer to reach them, potentially providing them with a small window to cast a bridge-making spell and reach the chest.

"At least I wasn't the idiot who was trying to become a snake charmer when it was mere feet away from eating us." He was able to say before hearing the noise of ice cracking and subsequently breaking. Turning back for just a second, he caught a glimpse of Bixby breaking free and immediately took off running, this time grabbing Tristan's wrist. "If you're that hellbent on trying to speak to it, at least distract it long enough for me to get the chest." He shouted, wand at the ready to build another bridge once in a clear enough position to do so.

"Get the chest," he tells Tate, ignoring the insults for now (he'll have a go at him later), and whirls on the basilisk, thinking quickly. He doesn't want to hurt it and he doubts he could with a spell anyway - their skin is famously magic-resistant, after all. Immobulus wouldn't work, he could go for the eyes but that seems cruel... he goes with Tate's plan from earlier. "Deprimo!" he says, hoping to blast a hole in front of the basilisk and hopefully slow her down. "Bixby, come on," he complains, changing tack. He may as well do what he does best and annoy it. "Please don't make me hurt you. Aren't we friends?" He tries to cast protego followed by fianto duri to create a physical shield before she reaches him.

Tate's spell is a success, creating a bridge steady enough that, coupled with Tristan's efforts to slow her down, he can cross before Bixby reaches him. This time, she doesn't give into Tristan. She ignores him in favor of pushing against the currents - at least until Tristan successfully casts his spell. Although he thinks he's aimed at the water, because she's such a large animal that's moving ahead and Tristan is still trying to avoid petrification/instant death, the spell strikes Bixby, instead, on some of her exposed underside. The creature hisses. "How dare you!" Bixby is slowed now, rendering his successful, physical defensive charms moot as it pulls back, warier of Tristan's intentions. "You're a liar! Like the rest of them!"

Letting go of Tristan, Tate makes a sprint for the chest, crossing the final bridge he had created. Having heard Tristan cast Deprimo then the sound of Bixby hissing, Tate assumed that the other was doing a good enough job to distract the creature. Running as fast as he could, Tate just needed Tristan to hold him off for a few more seconds.

Tristan winces - he really didn't want to hit her, but he guesses it's done now. "You should stop," he tells Bixby, and tries to cast deprimo again. This time he's more careful to aim in front of her.

Tristan's endeavors are successful, and rather than hitting her, his spell hits the water, causing a large explosion in front of her. Bixby thinks she's been hit, however, because of the force of the water lapping against her on top of the currents. She hisses again and presses forward, already swooping in to bite him and potentially drag him into the currents. At the same time, Tate is about five feet from the chest when a shimmering light appears. It's slow to become more tangible, but some seconds later, in his full robes appears Salazar Slytherin. "My champions!" he bellows, commanding silence and respect from Tate, Tristan, and the spectating wizards. "You have done well to honor Slytherin House. You're on the verge of collecting your reward, but I bequeath a unique opportunity to perfect your fine spellcasting skills and gain a point to your advantage. Tell me, my champions - would you like to undertake this responsibility? I must warn you: this may cost you more time to complete your task."

The shimmering light served to confuse Tate, causing him to slow down in pace until he reached a complete stop right in front of the the light that ultimately became Salazar Slytherin himself. Listening intently and not paying attention to what was happening behind him. Hopefully Tristan hadn't died. "Yes sir." He said, before glancing behind him and seeing the predicament Tristan was in. Only slightly regretting his decision.

Tristan skips back a few steps, hoping that his shield charm holds. But you know what? If he dies, he dies. A basilisk is a fun way to go, at least. "Yes, sir," he calls, a few seconds after Tate does.

Even though Tristan has left Bixby alone, his charms sustain the pressure of her trying to break through the shield. Every time she tries, she's launched some good feet away. It provides ample time for Salazar to nod once, although he doesn't bother to hide his disappointment. "Your challenge," he begins, sounding weary. "Is to cast a successful Ducklifors on me. It's a disappointing manner to showcase your abilities, but remember - not all is as seems."

At Salazar's request, Tate seemed puzzled. Why would the ghost of Salazar want to be turned into a duck? Can you even turn a ghost into a duck? He nodded his and with his wand raised said out loud. "Ducklifors."

Salazar's warning became more understandable when Tate's spell fails. The ghost of the Bloody Baron presents itself between Tate and Salazar, just in time to intercept the spell. His arms change as consequence, to that of a duck's wings. "How dumb can you be? Allowing the other houses to potentially complete their tasks sooner, just to showcase your magic? You're a disgrace to Slytherin, the both of you!" he shouts, indignant.

Tristan knew there'd be a catch, somewhere, so when the Baron appears between Slytherin and Tate he takes his chance. Hopefully he's too occupied with berating his partner to notice when Tristan brings up his wand and murmurs "Ducklifors." He's aiming straight for Slytherin.

Truthfully, Tate didn't expect any positive results. The degrading by a ghost didn't effect him either, not like it was something new and groundbreaking that he had heard. Dumb? Disgrace? Sounded like Tate to be perfectly honest. He didn't want to look over to see if Tristan was alive or what he was doing, given that that would alert the ghost to what he was doing in the first place. So, Tate decided to act his butt off in the off chance Tristan was performing a spell in order to cause a distraction. Bowing respectfully. "I'm sorry sir... I let you down."

The Bloody Baron seems pleased with Tate's apology. He redirects his anger at Tristan. who he feels deserves an equal berating for his further endeavors to turn Salazar into a duck. Not that he succeeds - Salazar does a good job at evading the spell and hovering above the chest with a disappointed glare. "I expected more from one of my descendants," he says, as he stares at Tristan. "It's a fourth year transfiguration spell and you are a pure-blood. Show some respect for yourself!"

Well his distraction didn't work, but that was fine. Tate was quick on his feet and immediately thought up another tactic. With Bixby still being held off by Tristan's shield, Tate turned to face them while the attention was away from him and raised his wand once more. Quickly casting the arrow shooting spell in the direction of Bixby, Tate hoped that if it hit (or even if it didn't) that Bixby would then become aggro'd on Tate rather than Tristan. With the hope that the large Basilisk would set her sights on Tate, he moved to behind the ghosts of Salazar Slytherin and Bloody Baron. If his plan worked, they'd be petrified by Bixby and make it far easier to cast Ducklifors. Was it dumb? Certainly. But if it worked? Tate might have been a genius.

Tristan catches on to what Tate's doing and casts finite on his shield spell. If they die, at least it was a good death! "So you did choose me based on nepotism!" he says, stepping between them and the basilisk to draw their attention to her - particularly her eyes. She's very tall, after all. "I really expected Salazar Slytherin to be smarter than that."

Tate and Tristan's spells work. Some could assume it's because at long last, Slytherin's champions are working together, but the simple fact is that the shields go down and Tate successfully shoots an arrow, which lands between its large eyes. In her fit, Bixby tries searching for the source of the sword. The Bloody Baron is the first one to fall prey to the basilisk's stare, freezing up and turning an odd shade of white as it suffers from the effects of petrification. Salazar Slytherin is too busy arguing with Tristan le Fey at first, roaring at him for his claims. "How dare you! You were chosen by your Head of House for your so-called superior capabilities, but all I see is a child, too incompetent to demonstrate House Pride by fulfilling the simple task of finding a chest! I will have your enrollment for this, boy! Do you hear me?! Magic is wasted on you!" Salazar Slytherin's rage isn't enough to protect him from Bixby's fury, though, and when he turns towards the Bloody Baron for some support, he instead meets the eyes of the Basilisk, which results in the same fate met by the Bloody Baron. This provides two openings - one for them to cast Ducklifors and another for them to grab the chest.

Tristan rolls his eyes and points his wand at Salazar. "It was nice chatting to you, granddad," he says, and casts ducklifors with a smile.

Holy shit, his suicide mission of a plan worked. He wanted to celebrate, but there were things that needed to be done. "Who's dumb now? Asshole..." Should he be cursing out a petrified ghost of Salazar Slytherin? Most likely not, but Tate was never one for being kind when he was stressed out. Seeing as Tristan was handling the ducklifors, Tate ran over to grab the chest.

Tristan's ducklifors is successful, granting them an extra point as a petrified Salazar becomes a duck. Meanwhile, Tate grabs the chest just in time. As the Champions are escorted out and the Magizoologists subdue Bixby, the spectators erupt into a round of applause. In the distance, Silas Chevalier proclaims Slytherin House to have earned a total of two points, tying them for third place with Gryffindor House.
