You are Patchouli Knowledge, a physically frail and sickly magician of profound aptitude and power. You live in the Voile Archives of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, though you have constructed an attached tower elsewhere, without internal fixtures as yet, which you may or may not inhabit much. You are Friends with Remilia, the vampire who owns the mansion, who considers it entirely too much effort to try to feed off you. Your Magical Potency varies somewhat from day to day, depending on how long of an incantation you can manage before breaking off into a fit of coughs, and how much strain your body can handle in addition to the rigors of illness. You currently have a box of ninety three vials of Medication stored in the library to offset the worst of the days, however, though it will later exact a toll, and your new Magical Focus eases use of magic to a significant degree. It seems that Luck can play a reasonable part in keeping yourself healthy, though effects may vary, as can the Hakurei Hot Spring.

Your magic is based on Elementalism primarily, though you are also skilled in Diabolism and Other Summonings, which can be surprisingly versatile, particularly in combination with Golems. You can also create Homunculi, if you have the materials to hand. You do not have any suitable samples of the key ingredient, however.

The date is Aug. 31. It is Wednesday, day of Mercury, of Messages and Water and Versatility. Through dint of long and methodical practice, you find the use of Water-natured elemental magics to come a touch easier on this day.

-----

Well, no reason not to make preparations before leaving the tower. It will take a while, without a specific spell, and be delicate work. More so because you aren't in a state to rush things.

But you have enough time. And you think you have a decent receptacle for the lunar forces as well. You carefully detach the moon from your hat before starting the work.

Some time passes before you speak, the business in your hands requiring more steady feeding of power than focused attention at all times. And you can take a moment to talk. Or just listen.

Mostly listen.

But you get little from the meandering words. Either Tewi doesn't wish to actually divulge her plans for the near future, or she simply and honestly does not have anything in specific that bears mentioning. Either possibility seems a reasonable guess. She is, after all, both a trickster of some nature and a being of impulse.

Still, you aren't sure whether it's best to assume one possibility or the other.

In any case, you would prefer to arrive an hour before the event, considering that you have been informed that they might begin fully half an hour before the stated time. But when it comes down to it, the mystic working takes time.

You have forty five minutes, when it is finally finished and you place the moon carefully back onto your hat. The working will only last a day or so at most, as it's constantly bleeding off the energy placed within it to perform its function, dulling noise and deadening sound, hushing the surroundings from speech to a hushed whisper, and from a shout to normal conversation.

You have to spend a few more minutes quietly seated and drinking a cup of water before you are prepared to attempt to open a portal to the match, as Tewi watches thoughtfully.

You arrive thirty seven minutes in advance of the stated time, and to a great hustle and bustle of small crowds. Some number are neutral, casually seeming to enjoy the event as they move towards the stands to find seating, prepared to watch even if there seems to be a touch of... calm resignation to their features, as though they all already know, more or less, how the event will conclude. Of the rest, half are excessively confident and smug, and the other half are twitchy, jumpy, and slightly stressed but nonetheless seem almost bleakly hopeful.

There is a harried man attempting to collect wagers as you pass, but even as he offers frankly ludicrous and absurd payouts for one team's victory, nobody takes him up on it, and he does not accept bets on the other team at all.

In the distance, you can pick out Flitwick in another stand. His diminutive size makes him easy to spot, in comparison to those around him, though peer as you might you cannot make out any other teachers at this distance. You do not recognize the woman next to him, though she matches the current times' aesthetic sense of beauty, tall and mostly thin but with excessive padding about the hips and quite a generous bust line. You can make out no further details from here save the conversely average brown hair.

You are somewhat disappointed when, fifteen minutes before the listed time, impatience wins the day and the match begins. It is at first a depressingly ordinary sort of a sport, catch the ball and put it through a hoop, despite that all the players fly on brooms and there are three goals on either side to guard.

Then you feel something drawing against you, a soft sort of pulling, and though you shut it down your breath catches in your throat.

This is not a game.

..... Well, it is a game, and a sport, but it is not just that.

Twice seven players and twice three goals, with one, two, and one further spheres of importance, performed entirely within or only slightly outside a carefully measured and marked ring.

This is a ritual circle.

Magic is being performed here, fascinatingly subtle and yet alarmingly blatant in the same stroke, as the players and the field create a constantly shifting ritual circle... pattern, rather, for a circle exists in only two dimensions where this ventures into three, and the working being done here draws power from the onlookers to...

Something. To do something, you know not what, but even with the impossibly small portion of power it seeks to draw away and use, spread across and taken from so many onlookers equally, it is brilliant and insane, and of course the audience will not even notice being slightly tired, as raucous cheers erupt from many throats with the same breath, they expect to get involved, to cheer, to participate and become a little weary through the event, and this magic drawn away goes, goes to....

Something.

It is doing something, though you know not what.

You prevent it from drawing from you, because even if you might afford even now a small measure, and even if it will restore itself effortlessly in time, you are jealous with what is yours.

Tewi calls laughing advice to the players, not mystically inclined to recognize or care about the arcane workings before her, but you cannot help but be at least a little hypnotized by the proceedings.

The score stands at forty points to zero, but that hardly matters at all. You forcibly move away the mystic leech trying once more to quietly attach itself for just a sip, and your thoughts whir.

Well, with pretty much everyone except Patchy failing miserably at Diabolism and causing major harm in the process, they have every right to be apprehensive about it. No need to teach the students how to use it, when with a tiny little fuck up, anything summoned just goes on with a will of its own.

>Magic is a tool that reflects the intent of the user.

Yeah. Except improperly done Diabolism. Then the summoned demon goes on a crazy rampage.

Hm.

Well.

"... I suppose a few words are a small enough thing. If they delay tea, however, that is a problem..." you muse aloud.

"Ah, quite right." Albus says, seeming pleased. "If it's too long then the students will lose track of what you are saying anyway. Best to keep the announcements short and pertinent, I have found."

The conversation seems to have warmed up now that it's moved beyond topics that the moral guardian of the school finds distasteful. ... It seems like he's more offended by anything that might damage, tarnish, or alter the soul than any sort of bodily harm that could be inflicted, considering his blase attitude towards potential injury.

'Madame Pomphrey can fix it', and all of that.

... In any case, it's not as though you can't understand that point of view, and you're more annoyed at restrictions being placed upon you from On High than the actual details involved in them. You don't take being told what to do well.

As for the welcoming words themselves...

... Albus is taking on the responsibility about portal notification, you believe, so you'll just say something meaningless about hoping the little brats exceed your expectations of them. You can leave unspoken how low those expectations rest at this moment. Better to put off dashing their hopes for a little while.

"As for Lockheart... you mentioned before that he rented a room from the village, I recall?" you say, dredging your memory for the inconsequential details.

"Oh yes, during his tenure as defense instructor. Quite a shame, I had rather high hopes... but it seems like the ability to do something, and to properly teach others how to do it, are not quite the same thing. Nevertheless I suppose that it was far from the worst period for defense in the last twenty years."

... it isn't what you asked about, is it?

You just want to be sure you aren't going to be expected to board the man, even if you do want to take a look at him at some point. It's a difficult subject to edge around, when you have to consider the fact that if nobody's thought of it yet, bringing it up might well be what puts the fool notion in their heads.

"I'm sure that Gilderoy's finances have taken a hit from extended convalescence, but I don't doubt that he still possesses some income, and of course if he accepts the boards offer that will come with a small stipend on its own. More than enough to arrange for accommodations, I am sure." Dumbledore assures you.

Instead of summoning a demon, could we summon something more benevolent, bedazzling and beautiful?

[X] Think of doing the following in your duel with Flitwick, don't tell Albus this directly, but
[X] Ask if it would be fine to cast spells associated with the 'upper' planes instead of the 'lower' ones
[X] Prepare to do the following for the duel;
Create a small area of concentrated energy imbued in flora; sort of a peculiar miniature enchanted mystical fairy forest.

How would this work?
Source: either gather some magic from Gensokyo to transform into (in this case you can likely prepare a (part of) the enchantment), or directly connect the location through an intermultiverse portal to the plane of life or its equivalent. (E.g. Arborea). Even a small pinprick of a connection should be enough for this kind of creation to work. Instead of a scottish field, a lush greenery filled with flowers of all kinds, with its obligatory tiny fairies and walking plant-creatures, and a mysterious large lotus flower containing a greater sprite of some kind. This creature can proceed to 'charm the dwarf' like a Veela would. Success in this most likely constitutes a straight up one-shot win by simply informing your opponent that/how this creature `could have been dangerous`...

Such a feat can of course be illusionary and still be likely to work, even. But that's not good enough, and not really patchy's style. Reasons to do this include free popularity points from almost everyone.

It's a bit of elementalism combined with the 'other summonings' part from pache's specialization description. Thus -- should be within her area of expertise too.

... Well, you suppose that that's that. You won't be obliged to board the man, and everything is permitted in the duel save actual demons or dead. Probably won't be a good idea to bring the greeks in, even, with those limitations.

"There are some personal matters I need to attend to. When should I be here for the feast?" you ask. Your first day of tutelage isn't until Monday, but you should probably make some manner of appearance through the castle in the meantime.

Even if it is going to be swarming with children after today.

"The train leaves London at around noon, and so... there have been occasions where the time of arrival isn't expected. Late due to leaves on the line, or a ministry check." Dumbledore says, and you make out a following grumble about 'Dementors near his students...'

He shakes his head.

"Normally, an instructor is present on the train to assist the prefects in keeping all the students in line, but in this case it may be inconvenient to ask of you. As long as you are here before dinner time you should make it to the feast." he says, sprightly. "And I'll have your salary prepared and delivered later today."

Very well, then.

You politely excuse yourself from the conversation and return to your library. Thinking about the greeks, you suppose you should check sooner or later and make sure they aren't causing trouble in the depths of the library...

... those thoughts are interrupted as you notice the spider, cleaning up and getting herself neat.

"Hey!" she says, drawing your attention. "I'm stepping out for a while. I've got plans to go drinking with a couple people."

... She doesn't drink enough here?

"Ah, I can read it on your face." she says, seeming put off by it. "But I've also got to get out of the stacks now and again. I feel like I'm going to smother in old paper if I don't, you know?"

... You don't follow at all. But you suppose you can't do much about it, as long as...

"Relax, relax... I'll be back later. That doctor's probably going to set up hunting squads if I don't show up, anyway." the spider says, retreating from your library.

You sigh a little and settle down. If you're fighting seriously, it's been a while since the last time...

In the end, you spend a period of time reading stories about old duels. The tale of the duel between Myrddin Emrys and Mim the Mad Dame is somewhat compelling and provokes contemplation and ideas...

.... transforming your own form has never really been a strong suit of yours, of course. And frankly, transforming yourself into a disease might be a little outside of your means, even if you polished up on things.

Summoning, of course... and it's the day of wood. There might be something to that. Wasn't there, on the slopes of that mountain...

Well, demons are out of bounds, but you don't always have to be a shrine maiden to call on gods. They just tend to get better, and more predictable, results.

Your thoughts are interrupted by a fairy.

"There's books at your tower!" she says. "And you've got letters!"

You hold out a hand, looking about... the time here means it's about noon there already. You've got a few more hours, it seems, before you need to change into something more formal and authoritative. The letters...

... One is from Alistair, mentioning that he's thinking of renting rooms of his home, and edges around the topics of the cleaning golems and fairy maids that are there. Tedious, but it's at least an important notification.

The other is from a student, the Granger girl, and prattles tiresomely on and on asking about things that will come up in class. If she's that concerned, then she can read the books, as there's no need to bother you about it until the class itself...

You are already beginning to dislike her.

Not too keen on letting the Youkai Mountain crew know there's a school for magical teenagers since I'm pretty sure we still owe Sanae a favor for losing the duel against her. Also, summoning a god to a friendly duel seems kinda cheap. I mean like...animals and spirits would probably be more sportsmanlike.

[X] It occurs to you that Yamame's sudden disappearance might cause a backlash in your health. Take some time to speak with Tewi and Reimu about securing tong-term access to their respective health boosting powers.
[X] Make a copy of some notes relevant to the subject matters discussed in the books and mail them to Granger encrypted behind some sort of magical ward or puzzle. Tell her if she wants an edge up on her classmates, she's going to have to work for it.

[X] Ignore the questions in the letter. Anything of importance can be arranged in class later. It's best not to give in and to not reply at all to harrassment of any kind, lest she continue with it.
[X] Speaking of class, while you're expected to teach what is in the books, you do intend to arrange to challenge every student. With the Voile comes extensive magical knowledge, including that of the undead, fiends, the potency and abilities of cursed objects, and so on. You're sure you can keep everyone busy, so no need to bother replying. Keep what you're going to do secret for a while longer.
[X] Contemplate reviewing the education of each class of your students so far. For example knowledge of and practice with cursed items is likely spotty for the higher-years compared to what it should be. Plan on doing what they're 'behind on most' first.
[X] Contemplating cursed items, would it be possible to curse a book to hide its information (contain naught but blank pages) until some condition is met (say, its exposure to Gensokyo?). This way, you'll be able to provide information to your students in case they get abducted, without providing anything in any other scenario. This might be useful magic to research into over the weekend.
[X] You don't necessarily have to call on gods other beings to do your bidding. It might be simply enough to channel power from their realm to create something majestic by yourself.

Dude...if one of these kids gets attacked, how likely is it that whatever is attacking them happens to be a fiend, undead or a cursed object?

Shouldn't we be teaching them to defend themselves against spells, magical creatures and regular, non-cursed magical objects? One or all of which will undoubtedly be in every fight they should happen to come across?

Also, way to go full uncaring substitute teacher on a kid that just wants to learn.

Some reasoning for >>61981

Out of character note: We know that Granger's just curious. Patchy doesn't though, yet. Which is why advocating restraint seems appropriate, because we're supposed to be annoyed with the note, so we might come across in the wrong way. Best leave it be for now, a little bit of curiosity is a good thing to have, makes people look forward to your lessons. Eye-to-eye conversation is far less likely to cause any sort of misunderstanding. You're very likely to mess up gauging proficiency at things without some experience directly teaching.

Also note, while we do have advanced stuff at our disposal, it's rather the 'knowledge of' that's important more than other things, it's also just an example of what directions we might go in beyond what's normally taught. The ability to resist temptation by the dark arts is a very useful one for any powerful magic user. Patchy must have learnt it yourself one day for she is still untarnished (well, mostly).

And actually, I'd imagine with the decline of magic that magical objects are pretty common, including the variety that intends to harm the user (what should be defined 'cursed'), e.g. the part of the field where you would say it's related to DADA. The 'intelligent' variety, e.g. that imbued with life somehow could be rarer. Undead are reasonably common too, with inferi and vampires as two examples. Though that is nothing really high-rank like say the ghosts of gensokyo. Fiends would be the rarest of those three things. Probably the only important things would be to learn what spells derive from that plane and any side-effects to identify a dark magic user, and what to do if you happen to be in the unfortunate path of a loose fiend resulting from a botched contract. Hide, most likely...
>> No. 61988
>>61987

Actually, now that I think about it, Patchy probably would think the most likely things to attack people would be fiends, undead and cursed shit. Simply because that's what she has to deal with all the time.

Of course, us readers know that to be not true in the HP verse.

In hindsight, I guess your vote isn't as silly as I previously thought.

In the end, you have much, much more important things to be doing than passing advance information along when you should only have to say it once, in class.

Instead you pen a quick note that a review will be held in class to determine the precise curriculum and disregard other information. Showing initiative or not, the students will have to wait their turn about these things.

There's a snowy owl in front of your tower. You assume the post service, awaiting returns. You flick the letter that way and it plucks it out of the air before winging away.

With that handled, the books. Your freshly delivered books. You take a moment to gently stroke the covers. This one, slim and deceptively bound, are the hand-written notes transcribed from the Headmaster's journal. This one... ancient and it smells of dust. It would have long since decayed to nothingness if not for the arcane preservation methods that are as much a part of it as the heavy paper bound between carved wooden covers. Written in the original languages... these will be a treat.

Most importantly of all, however, is the compendium of playscripts. You hesitate, and then flip slowly through the pages, looking for....

Here.

Alistair can wait five minutes or so. You draw stone out of the wall and seat yourself, greedily finishing a script that you had paused most of the way through, knowledge that you would likely never know how it ended having been settled in like a buried thorn since the day your copy was lost to you.

...

In the end, all of the struggles of the protagonist are fruitless and desperate courage in the face of overwhelming force avail him nothing as the climactic antagonist destroys his assault and crushes his defensive struggles, and him, without hesitation or a moment's backward glance.

A bold decision, but it's clear why this script was rejected. After all, even if it paved the way for a sequel, the villain had clearly and unquestionably won.

There are more included in this compendium, but if you let yourself read just a little more and a little more, then you will still be turning pages when the welcoming feast is prepared and you are noticed missing.

For now, you suppose that you should put the books away and go have a look at Alistair's situation. A careful rip through the fabric of space and you step through to...

A large puddle, with fairies mopping up and chattering among themselves. To the side, Alistair is wringing a small flood into a bucket and out of a rug.

"The statues decided to clean the bedroom ceilings and it's dripping everywhere!" another fairy says cheerfully, hanging half into the room through the door.

"Good god." Alistair grunts.

...Why leaving them here? Alistair is thinking of renting rooms. So the fairies need to be brought home or else they'll just cause mischief.

We'll need those for lessons anyway.
>> No. 61997
[X] This is just a setback, modify the Golems to make it so that it doesn't attempt cleaning maneuvers on surfaces not suited for it and inform Alistair that he had the power to stop it if he had taken control of it before it got out of hand.
-[X] Alistair also mentioned some issue with the maids. Round them up and let them know any further misbehaving will result in a one-on-one chat with the Chief Maid.
-[X] Offer him some small recompense for damages rendered.
-[X] Ask him if he has any tips or advice for dueling wizards.
-[x]-Idly inquire about who he intends to rent rooms out to.
[X] Get ready for diner.

[X] Well, this IS somewhat your own fault here. You probably should help out a bit, before sending the fairies home and handling the golems.

Because their presence is obviously about to be relevant to some future plot point, otherwise Kahi probably wouldn't have taken the time to include them in recent updates. whomever is coming to stay is going to see them and use that knowledge to make themselves relevant to the plot.

Hopefully it's some dude from the ministry who proceeds to arrest Patchy for having possession of some many unregistered magical creatures. That would be pretty funny.

Yeah, how about we dodge the hassle? They'll be shown enough during classes.

Besides, Alistair will not be getting much people to rent rooms if fairies are causing mischief. And we STILL need those fairies for classes anyway.
>> No. 62002

Why do we need fairies for class? Just curious.
>> No. 62003

To sick on students, of course!

After being trashed once or twice by fairies, then maybe the students will understand the value of teamwork.

Anyone that rents from a werewolf in Wizarding Britain is either in dire straits or up to some shady shit. We've little to fear from potential tenants.

I'm sure the average student would be more than a match for a fairy or 10. Especially the future DA crowd. Even the first years would likely out match them.
>> No. 62007

Less likely than you think. Fairies can work together. Students from all houses together? Not so much.
>> No. 62008
>>62007

They are also lack combat experiance and, for all intents and purposes, have 1 hp and an unspecified respawn timer. The students on the other hand are wizards, can take multiple shots and can reasonably be exspected to work together with the 10 or so other members of their house. There's no way the fairies can win. There are simply not enough of them. Even assuming 1 wizard beats only 1 fairy, Patchy would still need hundreds of them.

Some fairies should be sturdier... And it also depend on what spells students are willing to use to begin with. Sure, they're immortal. Still don't expect students to throw around, say, fire right away.

Also, go reread older threads. The whole point of getting fairy maids, already trained, from Remilia and making a deal about it was to use in combat lessons. If there was an issue before, it would have been pointed out.
>> No. 62011
>>62010

I don't mind using them for combat training or whatever. Alls i'm sayin is they are gunna lose the 3rd years and above, and aren't teaching the student anything other than how to beat up fairies. Might be useful if they aspire to become a Shrine Maiden or Ordinary Magician, but that's about it.
>> No. 62012
Alot depends on how strong the fairies are, if they're simple stage 1 fae then yes they will get creamed and the students learn little however there's some midgame fae that can stand up to Marisa for a few seconds (assuming no spark) and put out some decent spam and should be much harder to deal with.

And if an extra stage death fairy gets mixed in there then the students will need all the help they can get.....

>summoning the extra stage Death Fairy on mere mortals

Whoa man, we were all having a lighthearted discussion here, let's not get too crazy. I'm sure Albus wants his student coming back next year.

No worries. Just enforce spellcard rules and everyone will be fine.

...Wait. Do fairies actually pay attention to / need to pay attention to spellcard rules at all?
>> No. 62018
>>62017

We aren't in Kansas anymore bro. Spellcard rules don't apply here.
