Cassandra shivered and pulled her wrap tighter around her, even though the room was well heated. The icicles hanging from the torches, wall hangings, and windows were all illusions of course, but they were certainly real enough to give her goosebumps. Glittery, delicate paper snowflakes, many as tiny as her pinky fingernail fluttered down from the ceiling only to be swept back up to begin again. Her hair had a faint sheen from the snowflakes caught up her curls, and her bare shoulders were dotted with them, completing her holiday look.

She waved her arm, and the live band began to play quietly as she flung open the doors for the guests:

Ivy wobbled in, teetering a little in her pumps, and bumped into the deputy headmiss on her way to the punch table. On her shoulder was her date, Dodger, her cheerful little gecko. Clad in his first tuxedo, he was the handsomest and most charming boy in the room. Ivy picked up a cup of punch and took a small sip before offering it up to Dodger, who only sniffed it, and turned his head. He looked more like he wanted to dance than to drink...

Mallory adjusted the sash on her navy blue empire dress before walking in calmly, waving to her friends and acting as cool and natural as if she owned the ball herself. The only flaw to this dance was that some of the younger students were attending, and being their usual childish selves. At least there weren't that many, since most of the younger students wouldn't want to go formal, and this was a major formal event.
She looked over and saw one of the students talking to herself.

She took a few steps and was bout to pat the girl on the shoulder, when her hand almost came into contact with a lizard. Shit!
Mallory backed off quickly, her heels not making any noise louder than the music, not wanting the strange little third year to see her. What was with that little freak, anyway?

Surprised What the hell happened to your avatar, Cass? Shocked

Pervious stood aside and observed the youngsters as they pushed and shoved their way into the great hall. Seeing all the young people dressed in their best and arm in arm with their dates, made him feel twenty years younger. Fortunately for him, there was only one way to celebrate this newfound youth...making his presence known to all the female professors. Except for the potions professor, of course. She seemed to be after his money. Pervious had a sort of sixth sense about these woman. Regina Gaunt seemed the type that would kill a fellow in his sleep and run off with all his gold. It was for this reason alone that he maintained minimal contact with her.

Cassandra, however, was a different story.

"Hello there, Professor! Blimey, you are the very essence of beauty this fine night. If it weren't for my trick knee, I'd ask you to dance this very moment." The truth was, Pervious was such a horrid dancer, everyone would have thought he took lessons from a blind troll.

"Good God, this place looks amazing. And the students, so happy and carefree. Reminds me of my school days." He looked around a bit and could have sworn he saw a lizard somewhere.

He really needed to stop drinking.

Cassandra smiled at Pervious gratefully. How nice to finally have a gentleman on staff, as opposed to the ingrate that handed her her paycheck every month. She tilted her head and accepted his compliment, glad someone saw her as a female finally, as opposed to some sexless walking textbook, good only for doing scutwork.

"Well, Mr. Hazard, you are looking quite dashing yourself. I'm not normally up for dancing much either, but if there's a slow song coming up, we could just do the 'lean and sway thing' those seniors over there are doing," she winked and nodded her head in the direction of two seventh years in the opposite corner, who were barely moving, even though the music was fast and loud.

What an attractive man. Cassandra always had a soft spot for older dashing intelligent men. And he didn't seems so much older that it would be an issue socially. She found herself wondering what line of work he was in before coming here. Something dignified, most likely. Either in the ministry or some form of public service. Not some cutrate hack job, she could just feel it. The way his suit was cut, and his manners, he was someone who was used to nicer things, and probably came from old money, unconcerned with trivial things like wages and daily expenses. Funny she wasn't familiar with his name, though. Even though Cassandra's family wasn't wealthy, they were knowledgeable enough about wizarding elite to spot famous or noteable names at a glance. The name Hazard just didn't seem to ring a bell. Funny, that.

Something niggled at the back of her mind, as if she were overlooking something important, but she couldn't think of what it was. Oh well, it would probably come to her later...

Sachiko stared in wonder at the snowflakes and icicles and turned round and round before remembering to adopt a hopeless expression just in time. She sighed, pretending to be bored, and wandered to a corner with an empty chair. She checked her eyeliner and mascara, and was happy to see it was still artfully smeared down her face, her tragic clown look still intact. She had donned a lace black dress, torn along the hem, some lace hanging down randomly in back, not reaching the floor, but almost.
She kicked her black scuffed flying boots back and forth, wondering when the music would change. She admired her reflection, and rummaged through her neon green clutch after returning her mirror. She reapplied the violet lipstick that matched her eyeshadow, and frowned. She was so misunderstood. And alone. All year she had searched, and yet there was no hint of her ever finding her true master...maybe after the ball she could sneak out and catch a lift on the Knight bus and go to Knockturn alley? Rumor had it there was a vamp bar there, or something.
