Hogwarts A New Era. OOC - http://roleplayerguild.com/showthrea...-A-new-era-OOC
The train had been chugging along now for a good 5 minutes or so. Platform 9 ¾ was well behind the students who were now on their way to Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. The smell of the sweet trolley misted through the carriages, filling the air. Students hustled and bustled through the carriages, either trying to get somewhere, or get back to somewhere. The deputy headmaster was patrolling the carriages, making sure all the students were ok.
Every now and again the driver would apply the brakes somewhat for no reason and the train would lurch forward before continuing. The first years all looked excited, and the older students acted as if this were just a normal journey.
Since the old times, the train regulations had been changed. The separate houses had their own carriages, and if students from different houses wanted to interact, they would have to speak at the back of the train, in the multiroom. This was simply to make it easier for staff to keep track of students.
Anthony sat by himself, as he had found a compartment early. He was holding his wand out in front of him, levitating a crumpled up piece of paper in front of him. It was easy magic, but he was just building himself back up after not being allowed to use magic outside of Hogwarts for the whole of the summer. He was in his ordinary clothes, and would change into his robes later. For now, he just sat there, levitating the paper, waiting for something to happen.
