PostSubject: Start of the Year Ceremony   Tue Jul 14, 2015 7:07 pm

McGonagall stood outside the doors of the Great Hall, behind her being the clutter of first years who excitingly chatter and prepare themselves to get sorted and join with the other older students of the school. They soon fell silent as she peered at them over her glasses, allowing her to have control over them with little effort. She then spoke.
"Well, now that you all appear prepared, I will lead you to the Great Hall, where our Start of the Year Cermony will begin. During the ceremony, you will all be sorted into your houses through the Sorting Hat. I highly recommend that you all act on your best behavior and get in order by last names in alphabetical order. Now then, upon your arrival let us begin the Ceremony."
She raised her wand and faced the door, calmly leading the first years into the Great Hall then facing them once she is next to the Sorting Hat. Silence slowly fell before she spoke once again.
"We will now commence the sorting of the first years. I will be calling out last names in alphabetical order, and once your name is called please step forward to be sorted into your houses." She gently picked up the Sorting hat with one hand and with the other hand raised the list of first year names.
"Mister Barker, Zachary. Please step forward."

Helena watched the sorting ceremony attentively, and decided to see if she could accurately predict which house each student would be placed in. Soon, the first name was called, Zachary Barker. The hat was placed on his head, Helena's guess was Ravenclaw, judging by the boy's demeanor, and immediately after, the hat affirmed her guess by shouting "RAVENCLAW!" and the boy shuffled off to their table, taking a seat wherever he could find one. Helena smirked, ever so slightly, this year was already off to a good start, the first student was in her house.

Connor smiled softly as the first new student of the school year was sorted into Ravenclaw, leaving his Gryffindors looking slightly deflated for not having the first student. He knew it wouldn't be long until they get their first new Gryffindor to join their house. He looked up as the second student was called forward.
"Barkwith, Grogan." He watched the student nervously step forward and have the hat be placed on his young head. Along with his House, he silently hoped for the welcome of a new Gryffindor. So when the Sorting Hat announced, "GRYFFINDOR!", he cheered loudly along with his house then quickly calmed himself, waving sheepishly as McGonagall looked over at him with a raised eyebrow.  He settled down and patiently watched as Barkwith joined the house table and the next student  was called, a proud smile still on his lips.

Clara waited anxiously in the line of first years, her highlights gray as she waited for her name to be called. The blonde searched for her dad amongst the other professors at the high table and gave him a small wave. "Bellamy, Clara." Clara walked up to the stool silently, and as soon as the hat was placed upon her head, it began muttering under its breath "A Bellamy eh? Well, most of your family have been in Ravenclaw, though you, you show much potential for a different house..." the hat whispered in the first year's ear, Clara didn't know what to think, other than that she hoped her highlights weren't changing colors. "Well....better be....HUFFLEPUFF!" the hat shouted.

Clara hopped off of the stool, and made her way over to the Hufflepuff table, finding a seat where she could, and gave a small smile to her dad.

The Hufflepuff giggled silently at her fiance's outburst, and covered a small snicker at McGongall's reaction, it seemed some of her fiance's habits were rubbing off on her. 

Elisabeth watched as her colleague's daughter approached the stool, half watching Clara, and half watching Matt. The sorting hat was taking its time with the young first year, clearly weighing its options, until finally it shouted "HUFFLEPUFF!" Elisabeth grinned and clapped along with the rest of her house as their new housemate joined them.

Matt had been absentmindedly smelling the various spices out on the high table, and it was only when Clara's name was said that he brought his attention to the sorting. The professor returned his daughter's smile, reassuring her that everything would go fine. Matt's highlights soon matched his daughter's as they changed to be gray, giving him the appearance of having salt and pepper colored hair. The metamorphmagus watched intently as the sorting hat ruminated on his daughter's house. He knew it was probably deciding between Ravenclaw and another house, considering his family's history.

Soon, the hat had finally decided and it called out "HUFFLEPUFF!" Matt grinned, his highlights turning a bright blue as he clapped for his newly sorted daughter. Matt maintained the grin as he looked proudly towards his daughter.

Sherlock was only partically listening to the Ceremony as each student was called, clapping along with the other students and professors as necessary. By the time the next student was called (Lucian Claverdon, was it?), he could already deduce that most of his former students were tired and impatient of the Ceremony, especially since they haven't yet recieved a new member.
It wasn't until the Hat called out, "SLYTHERIN!", when they seemed to have shaken out of their bored expressions and cheered for the recent Slytherin, Sherlock giving a nod of approval with a slight smirk and clapping with them.

Elisabeth watched the ceremony quietly, biting her lip slightly as the first Slytherin was sorted, it was nice to see the Slytherin students happy instead of moping for once. The next student called was Millie Curd, who Elisabeth was happy to see sorted into Hufflepuff, followed by a boy named Rufus Elwood, also sorted into Hufflepuff. The blonde was glad they were getting some new faces, considering they hadn't been so lucky in some previous years.

"Evensen, Edgar."
Edgar looked up at the sound of his name, his ears turning slightly red as the attention was turned to him. Not wanting to make a bad impression of himself or his family in front of the school, he took a deep breath and stood straight as he walked up to the stool. He glanced over at his aunt then quickly looked back forward, afraid that she would be able to see his nervousness just by looking in his eyes. His father appeared to have that ability so hopefully she doesn't have the same power.
As he sat down and let the Hat fall on his head, it began to mutter things that appeared he could only hear. "My, such a good mind, yet you carry the same hidden ambition your family holds. You will make both your house and family proud, so it will be SLYTHERIN!" He smiled in relief as the Hat was taken off his head and he made his way to the Slytherin table, only looking up at Olivia once he found a spot to sit and smiled up at her.

Sherlock raised an eyebrow at the mention of the boy's surname, looking over at the professor that holds the same surname as him. He doesn't recall ever hearing that she had a son or nephew coming to the school,(judging by the way the boy doesn't need the professors silent support and the similarities of their appearances possibly nephew) so maybe it was meant to stay quiet. Well it could be that or just that he didn't pay attention earlier. He smirked at the way the boy tries to appear cool and confident which can clearly be seen as a very obvious mask and claps along with his house as the boy was sorted into Slytherin.

Olivia smiled at her nephew as he was sorted into Slytherin, she couldn't imagine him in Gryffindor as her but was expecting him to be a Ravenclaw. She understood why he wouldn't want to look over at her, he was the type who wanted to do things independently until he felt he couldn't handle things much like her brother. She's willing to be there for him whenever she can, and seeing him happy to stay with the family tradition made her happy.
She clapped along and gave him a slight wave, knowing that his father would be proud of him.

Connor clapped with everyone else as a Slytherin was sorted. So far every house has a new student yet there's still many first years to be sorted. He was curious just whether most of the students will end up in.
Another student was called up, Arkie Kettletoft, who was sorted into Gryffindor. He made sure to not cheer as loudly as before while he clapped with his house, smiling.

Helena clapped along with the other professors as the students were sorted. A young girl named Magenta Knightley came next, and Helena recognized her family name as the same as some of her other Ravenclaws. Sure enough, the sorting hat had barely touched the girl's head before shouting "RAVENCLAW!" and the girl went to sit with her siblings.

Sherlock was surprised to hear two students join in Slytherin, a boy named Oswald MacFarlan and a girl named Valerie Manlethorpe. The boy appears uncertain about the house while the girl looks as though she knew she belonged there (Must be a pureblood). He clapped with his house and wondered whether Slytherin would get most of the students instead of Gryffindor for a change.

"Myriad, Ariana." Connor looked over from his house, who are beginning to look tired and restless, and looked over at the young girl sitting on the stool and wearing the Sorting Hat. "GRYFFINDOR!" it yelled. Connor smiled and clapped with his House.

"Nitt, Reese" Helena watched attentively as the boy walked up to the stool, the sorting hat seemed a bit indecisive at first, but decided on "RAVENCLAW!" Helena clapped, and watched as the boy joined his new housemates. The witch had a feeling that would be their last new housemate.
