Welcome to Priori Incantatem
All witches and wizards aboard the Hogwarts Express from Platform 9¾!

Priori Incantatem welcomes everyone to a fascinating adventure into a modern version of Harry Potter roleplaying, where nostalgia of what we know about Hogwarts meets with new exciting characters we haven't met before. We closely follow canon and the Wizard World history for what has happened in the past, but entwine our own characters into the story to make it ours. Only the canon logic, occasional rules, and your own imagination is your limit.

Priori Incantatem encourages independent roleplaying and creative self-expression, and thus we have set the bar for players to be advanced level writers so that we can trust everything runs smoothly. Every player and character is carefully scoped by staff, and we have a zero tolerance policy for toxic environments. Our main objective is and always will be that each individual feels welcome, safe, and comfortable. And most importantly, that everyone has fun!

September 2023.

First semester has come again, and all the Hogwarts students are ready to say good bye to summer and greet the autumn. This is a very eventful months for all the Hogwarts students. First travelling back to school with the famous Hogwarts Express, enjoying the Sorting Ceremony of the first years, exchanging holiday stories with peers over the Opening Banquet Feast, and getting know to new students. Meanwhile, some students are greeted with new extra responsibilities, like becoming Prefects or Head Students, or taking over Captaincy or Leader positions in their respectful teams and clubs. New classes and new schedules keep the students busy too, which makes maintaining the social life and grades immediately a challenge. It'll be up to the students to sort out their priorities; studies or friends?

can any of you tell me the difference

Students began flooding into classroom 2E from the open doorway, with their Professor standing in attention at his pedestal in the center of the class. The seating arrangements changed from day to day, and even the platforms which Professor Singh stood upon to lecture and teach changed some - at his discretion, of course. "I have a new lesson for all of you today."

With his off-hand, Raj gestured towards the many stacks of books behind him. "Wingardium Leviosa." They immediately gave into his will, and moved along to sit themselves upon the face of every desk occupied by a student.

"If you turn to pages ninety-four and ninety-five, you'll see we will be covering the Water-Making spell, Aguamenti, as well as non-Verbal Magic."

Professor Singh then waved his hand around further, saying an incantation under his breath before a large goblet would appear before all the students.

"You're all going to be asked to put out a Wizard-made fire. Failure to do so today won't wreak much harm on your grade, but if you cannot put out the fire by the end of the semester, I won't be teaching you at the N.E.W.T. level any further. Instead you will need to find another class to fill that period."

Raj would let his class acknowledge this before moving on with the lesson.

"Any questions?"

"i'm only human after all"
Any questions? Dmitry's hand shot up almost immediately.

"Professor: Is magically conjured water safe to drink?"

It seemed like a stupid question. But he supposed that wherever they were conjuring the water from at the very least largely influenced the cleanliness of the water. Not that a bit of lightly contaminated water would kill them, but it could definitely cause enough cramping to make you wish for an end in sight.

That being said, Dmitry flipped to page ninety-four. He started reading about the details of the spell: A conjuration charm, which meant it fell under the category of an advanced transfiguration concept. The water it produced should be pure. "Nevermind, says here it's pure water. Should be okay."

Brandishing his wand, Dmitry's Elder wood swished through the air in a sideways S pattern, intoning carefully: "Aguamenti."

A small sprinkle of water trickled out of his wand in a downward slope with hardly enough water pressure to make it further away than his lap. It sounded-and looked-like he'd pissed himself.

Welp, that pretty much sets the tone for the day. Piss.

Still though, for his first time using the spell, that wasn't so bad.

+ notes p.s. it's aguamenti not aquamenti jsyk

always sleeping in,
and dreaming through the morning 'cause waking up is boring. been living in a fiction, we gotta keep it going ignoring all the warnings.

"If you turn to pages ninety-four and ninety-five, you'll see we will be covering the Water-Making spell, Aguamenti, as well as non-Verbal Magic."

Lucan sat behind a majority of the students, and occupied himself not with the class but the minute details of his surroundings as per habit. His roommate Dmitry sat not far away, experimenting with the spell; the boy was among the first to cast it successfully, in a manner of speaking, managing a weak trickle reminiscent of urination. Several in the class snickered, and the werewolf too smiled at his roommate's misfortune. He missed the goblet quite spectacularly, and many a piss joke could be made in reference to his 'aim'.

As the laughter died Lucan shuffled the supplied textbook around his desk lazily, somewhat hesitant to read as though it heralded the start of dreaded work. Upon turning to the assigned pages he mulled over each word slowly, eyes half-lidded as though ready to fall asleep. His free hand rifled through the pockets of his uniform, searching for a sugar quill to keep himself awake; finding but one of said confection he popped it into his mouth eagerly, still scanning the contents of the textbook. Theoretically the spell was fascinating: a measure more complex than Lucan anticipated.

He ran his tongue over the sugar quill between his lips once again, fingers pinched around its stem. He frowned at the words on the pages, impatiently willing himself to quickly understand the inner workings of the complex spell to no avail. To most it would appear as though he were struggling to simply read, given his reputation. Perhaps it would be safer, he thought to himself, to first attempt the unfamiliar magic with a wand.

Lucan pulled it from his sleeve- a polished cherry with dragon heartstring core- holding its tip against the goblet's edge, he mumbled the incantation lowly, barely audible over the voices of other students attempting the same. "Aguamenti..."

Water spouted forth with unforeseen force in a wide arc— not unlike the spray from waves crashing against rocks by the sea. Like Dmitry, Lucan's control of the spell was limited, except he managed to conjure too much water— only a tiny amount of which safely pooled at the bottom of his goblet.

The rest soaked into the uniforms of the unfortunate students in front of him.

"Ah, that's... not it." He blinked, realising his mistake. Lucan cast his gaze onto the textbook once again, ignoring the accident in favour of quickly tuning his control of the spell whilst it remained fresh in his mind.

can any of you tell me the difference

The Professor gave a dissatisfied sigh upon witnessing Mr. Rowle's relatively miserable attempt at filling his goblet. Instead of the expected results, several students wound up drenched in the water he'd conjured uncontrollably. Although perhaps Voronin suffered the worst of all. By his own hand, no less. "I don't know if I'm running a class or a circus right now...so we're going to go with the next part: 'Extra credit for dummies'."

Rajendra rubbed at his temples some with his offhand, not really able to look at the students as he proposed the challenge to them. "As you should know, the Water-Making spell is often used in the Wizarding world to extinguish fires. With that being said, I want you to write down on a piece of parchment the name of a spell that produces flames the 'Aquamenti' charm cannot put out. Below that, if you even can, I want you to also write what exactly does put that kind of fire out. It can be as broad an answer as the type of magic that puts it out, such as a Charm, or what have you..."

Allowing the hand to rest at the side of his hip once more, Professor Singh looked to the pair of Slytherin students who'd had a miscast on their first attempt. "As far as I know, there's only one good answer for either of those. If you can't get those right, then it'd be a good time to continue practicing."

The spell in question wasn't particularly known to the student body, but it was something covered in the very textbooks here at Hogwarts. They just hadn't gone over it specifically in class, as it was more in-line with the school's Defence Against the Dark Arts class. Yet it was relevant right now.

"Just give me your papers when you're done, but no sharing your answers."

Caleb O'Neill
Don't test me.
Caleb had been unfortunate enough in his choice of seat for this particular lesson. While in the back row of seats he had been placed close enough to Rowle that he hadhalf his left sleeve soaking wet from the misfire of the spell. He had been surprised at the sudden feeling of cold and he turned around to see who was the sucker that had gone and done it only to be met with the confused blinking of the giant of a Keeper for the snakes. "Seriously mate? Your aim is as bad as Voronin's. At least he had the brains to keep it weak instead of attempting to bloody drown us." He growled annoyed as he twisted slightly in his chair to properly make eye contact with the purple haired snake.

However before he could say or do anything else, the Charm's master intervened, proposing a round of 'Extra Credits for Dummies'. Caleb didn't enjoy those much. They were like pop up quizzes and he never seemed to get them right. Well this one he didn't like for another reason. He could answer that no problem. He knew what type of fire couldn't be put out with Aguamenti. He had felt it and he had put it out. "Tsk." He muttered displeased and pulled a piece of parchment, quickly jotting down the answer to those two questions. Fiendfyre and the correct charm to both cease as well as disperse the cursed flames. "Wingardium Leviosa." He encanted and his piece of parchment flew over to the Professor.

With that out of the way, Caleb turned his focus on the task ahead. He knew how to cast Aguamenti. He had figured the way to properly do so during this summer vacations as he knew it would come in handy as he worked on those projects of his. Cleaning something or using it for wet sanding or wet carving would be a lot easier on him if he could produce water on the spot. Any spot. So instead he turned to the page concerning the non verbal casting of the spell, not bothering to produce water to fill the goblet in front of him. He wanted to get the concept down first and then attempt a wordless one.
