Welcome Sarah to the staff team. (:
Spring is here and so is a quick little Activity Check. Just one post required. Make sure to post there by the end of the month. (:
School had been in session for a month and Aurelie was feeling completely overwhelmed. There was so much homework and a month ago during her first defense class her textbook had fallen apart when she and Matthew Cornfoot from Hufflepuff had been practicing the Flipendo spell. He had offered to buy her a new one which had been a kind offer and she still couldn't believe a third year had offered to buy her a new book.
She had been considering taking him up on the offer even if it had been completely out of the blue. Of course she could always just have a new one delivered from Flourish and Blotts but that might take too long. Aurelie sighed as she stared at the mountain of homework, having no clue where to begin. She had an essay to write and some reading to do. The essay would probably be the hardest so maybe she could at least start with the assigned reading in her other class. She reached into her school bag and pulled out the textbook for the class she had to do reading in. She opened the book and started to read the assigned pages, trying desperately not to let a little bit of reading stress her out.

Hermione was on her way back from a productive day in the library. Alone, of course. She was still having a hard time convincing Harry that the library was one of the most ideal places to do one's homework effectively, but she was sure he would catch on eventually. She wanted him to do well here as well, and not get into trouble for not doing his homework because he hangs out with Ronald too much. Ron was a hopeless case when it came to doing his homework, but she would persevere if she must, because it was in Harry's best interest.
Hermione granted the fat lady her password, and the door swung open before her. She stepped in, the familiar warmth of the Gryffindor common room greeting her happily. The common room was somewhat empty, save for a couple of students she didn't recognize. One sat at the fire, staring into it with such concentration she thought maybe he was trying to put it out with his mind. The other sat in front of a pile of papers, her face the epitome of stress and anxiety. She looked young, around Hermione's age, and the more she thought about it, Hermione thought there was a slight air of familiarity about her. She approached the girl tentatively. "Hi. You look like you might appreciate some help." Hermione watched and waited expectantly.
Aurelie looked up from the reading she was trying to comprehend when one of her fellow Gryffindors entered the common room. She thought she recognized her from the sorting ceremony. Aurelie recalled hearing a girl in line make a comment to someone else in their class about the bewitched ceiling in the Great Hall as they were heading towards the sorting hat. She hadn't learned the girl's name until McGonagall had called on her and Aurelie watched Hermione get sorted into Gryffindor along with her. "I would., thanks. This homework is kind of stressing me out." she replied. "I'm Aurelie, by the way." she added.
It was clear she needed help, and Hermione was not surprised to hear the girl concede to the fact. Hermione nodded, putting her bag down and taking a seat beside the girl, Aurelie. "I'm Hermione. Hermione Granger." Hermione scanned the parchments and books spread across the table."I've finished all our assigned homework to date for all our subjects. Which subject are you struggling with?"
