[sticky post] About 'In Somnia'

For the Marauders another year at Hogwarts has begun; there's classes to attend, spells to learn and of course mischief to make. Safe and protected in the Castle, it feels like the stirrings of war are a thousand miles away. Until things start to get weird.

It starts with small things; the feeling of deja vu and half remembered dreams, until the line between dreams and reality starts to blur. At first this discovery can be considered interesting and even fun, a new playground to be explored. But magic always comes with a price, and not only could the dreamscape have more nefarious uses, but manipulating the dream world could have disastrous consequences upon the real one.

In somnia is a medium level role play; whilst there's no set word length for posts, it's preferable to post at least 2 paragraphs (and one liners are very much discouraged - you will lose house points!). The main posting will be here on the  insomnia_mwpp community, with character journals for 'parchment play' (interlinked journals that can be used as a messaging system between students, staff etc)

There's no set plotline exactly, so feel free to take the scenario and plot away with fellow players and if you'd like, join in some of the mod run 'events' (ie. Halloween, Yule ball etc). However, any radical changes to the world, characters etc should be discussed with mods and characters in question first.

WANTED CANONS: Peter Pettigrew, Lily Evans, Regulus Black, Narcissa Black, Bellatrix Black etc

Remus and Severus Trial Scenario

This was not good. Not good at all. Remus’s eyes darted from side to side, seeking out the nearest exits. James and Sirius had already escaped, the gits, leaving him looking like the guilty party. He was sure it wasn’t intentional, but had he been forewarned that they were plotting a prank, he might have been able to plan a good excuse, alibi or even escape route. But here they were, in an empty corridor with Severus covered in some kind of very smelly, slimy goo.

The brunettes eyes settled on a tapestry; ah, so that’s where they’d disappeared to. However, if he tried to escape now not only would he tip Severus off as to a secret passage, but he’d leave his back open to attack and possibly get trapped in the passageway (the other end was blocked with a bookcase, that could be shifted with a latch). “Ah...” he tried a disarming smile. “I guess Peeves is loitering around here, hey Sni---Severus?” the nickname Snivellus was on the tip of his tongue, but he managed to save it. Remus tried to blame the incident on the castles resident poltergeist (who, in all fairness, did actually pull silly pranks like this).
