Ah, March; muddy waters, spring breaks, and thawing snow. Y'know what could really spice things up? A lesson on leprechauns to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! Unfortunately, it would seem that those tricky little buggers have managed to escape and are now wreaking havoc on the castle's inhabitants with their pesky tricks.

For this contest, you'll be helping Hagrid out by recapturing those pesky leprechauns that have taken too much of a liking to the castle. Will you genuinely help with the round up, or will you join the little green guys in their antics? Better start rolling up those sleeves because boy oh boy does it look like you'll be in for a wild ride!

Freya bounced up to Hagrid as he told the class to gather around. The leprechauns behind him caught her eye and she couldn't wait to get started on today's lesson. Hagrid began to speak about some of the basic information, but Freya was focusing on the creatures behind him. They appeared to be playing with the latch on the pen they were in. Freya raised her hand to say something, but just as Hagrid noticed her, the leprechauns broke out.

Chaos ensued immediately. Leprechauns ran in every direction and Hagrid bellowed for everyone to catch them. One of the creatures ran directly for Freya. She reached down to grab it, but is was too fast and ran between her legs. She turned around to chase the leprechaun as it took off for the castle.

Chara grinned, unable to contain herself. She loved Care of Magical Creatures class - she had always been enhanced by them; she just loved being around them. Well, besides the Blast-Ended Skrewts that delt with a while back.

Just then, the pen bursted opened, and Professor Hagrid yelled at everyone to catch them. Chara went right into action, chasing a group of leprechauns right into a pair of students who smiled briefly at her in thanks and hurried off.

She turned around and chased after Freya, seeing a couple more leprechauns heading her way, and tried to catch those silly, green-clothed living things with her hands, failing everytime.

The leprechaun Freya had been chasing ran for the doors of the Entrance Hall, but they remained shut as they approached. She was able to back it up against the door and quickly thrust her arms forward to grab it. It was now in her hands, but Freya realized then that she had no idea what to do with it now. She held it out from her body and watched as it squirmed around attempting to break free. Freya had just decided to march it back to Hagrid's hut when the doors in front of her opened. She didn't even get the chance to see who it was before the leprechaun bent its head down and bit her firmly on the hand. Freya let go, more from being startled than hurt, and the creature took off into the castle.

Jelly had nothing against Care of Magical Creatures class, specifically. She would never be a diehard animal lover, but the lessons were doing a lot to increase her appreciation for all types of magical life, and she had come to stop dreading them. If nothing else, they got her out of the castle for a few hours every week!

But all the same, Jelly couldn't stop a smile from spreading over her face as the leprechauns hit the ground and immediately sprayed out in every direction, like a spray of green taking over the castle. Seems like class is ending early today. "Run, my friends," she whispered. "Run and be free!"

Arabella had yet to take a Care of Magical Creatures class, but she would always use her free time to sneak and watch the class from the side. Today was the same, as she hid behind a rock to listen in. She was fascinated by all the different magical creatures she saw. Including ones that she had never seen before, since she was a muggle born.

However, when she saw all the leprechauns running in every direction, she didn't know whether she should get out and help. She didn't want to give away her hiding place and get in trouble, but she knew she should help. But before she could make up her mind, one leprechaun bounced right in her face.

Chara groaned as the leprechauns ran away, sticking their tongue at her. She rolled her eyes and continued to chase them, cursing furiously under her breath. She had managed to catch one, but that one had tried biting her - so she had to use the binding spell.

She felt a little tired, but she didn't really mind that much. Chara had always been into althetics. Just then, a leprechaun leaped towards their immobilized friend. She didn't know what to do - so she also immobilized the leprechaun.

Lifting the stiff leprechauns (their 'Wingardium Leviosa', charm finally had some use) into their pen again, she rushed off to find a group of green who was scowling at her. "Uh - help, anyone?" she yelped, running off with the group of angry leprechauns chasing after her.

Ezrin had heard of the leprechauns before he actually encountered one. He had a free period, and had been in the Ravenclaw common room when he got wind of them. There were mutters all over, and he had gotten tired of just hearing rumors, so he decided to go see for himself.

The sixteen year old boy walked down the halls, running his hand through his longer, messy, brown hair. The leprechauns were everywhere, causing mischeif, making messes, etc. He smiled, and leaned back against a wall, crossing his arms in front of his chest. He watched, calm through it all, still smirking. When he wasn't causing mischief himself, it was fun to watch it.

A girl ran by. She looked like she was in her element. He had seen her around before, he believed her name was Cara or Chara or something. "Uh - help, anyone?" She said. He pushed off the wall. "Why would you want to stop them when what they are doing is so beautiful?" He laughed. "Come on. You gotta admit, this is rather funny", he looked at the girl.

The leprechaun that bounced in Arabella's face, stuck its tongue out and quickly bounded away. Arabella quickly stood up and ran after that one but it was quick and even hopped up into the trees. The leprechaun just smiled at Arabella and after hopping around in the trees, jumped down and headed for the castle.

Arabella didn't know what to do but she ran after the leprechaun and chased it around in circles for quite sometime. She saw another girl running off with a group of leprechauns chasing her and felt bad for the poor girl. The leprechaun saw his friends chasing after a girl so it ran off to chase her too. Not looking where she was going as she was so dizzy, Arabella ran straight into a taller boy.

Before he could say anything else to the girl, Chara, another one ran into him. He stumbled a bit, but did not loose balance. Once he steadied himself, he looked at the shorter girl. He bowed in a charming way, but a sarcastic smirk plastered on his face.

"Excuse me, ma'am. My most sincere apologies", he said, with a small chuckle. Although he was messing with her, - in what could be taken as a rude way - he was just joking, all in good nature. This was a usual thing, as he was a very sarcastic trouble maker.

While Jelly supported the idea of freedom for all the leprechauns (and students who were supposed to be studying them), it was starting to feel like a lot less fun in practice. One girl was being chased around the class area by what seemed like an entire pack of angry leprechauns. Another was leading students in a circular chase, laughing hysterically as his pursuers tripped and tumbled over each other from dizziness. It seemed only a matter of time before someone got seriously hurt. Why wasn't Hagrid doing anything to help? He probably thinks this whole thing is some kind of joke!

With a heavy sigh, Jelly jogged after the angry leprechaun pack. That seemed to be the situation where she could offer the most help, for the moment. "Hey!" she shouted after the other girl. "Maybe lead them back toward the pen? See if we can lure them in!"

The fifth-year Slytherin shot Ezrin a dirty look; sure, they were funny, but when you were being chased around by a very angry group of leprechauns, that was not fun at all.

Chara looked over at a shout to see a girl jogging towards the group of leprechauns. She heard what the girl said, and nodded, then yelled insults at the group trailing behind her to get them to follow. They were right behind her and Chara sped closer to the pen, jumping over it and getting the angry group to go through the gate before she shut it and hopped out.

"Thanks," she said to the girl with a smile. She was grateful for her help. The idea had popped into her head but Ezrin had distracted her. "Those leprechauns seem to not have a brain, almost," she added with a small laugh. "I'm Chara, nice to meet you; should we go help the others..?"

Jelly had not expected the plan to go so smoothly! The leprechauns were so fixated on the chase, they didn't seem to have even noticed the pen they ran into until it was too late. Jelly pointed her wand at the latch on the pen, locking it with a quick, "Colloportus!" There were other leprechauns to get inside still, but it was important not to let these ones escape in the meantime. She was proud of both herself and her new friend Chara for capturing so many leprechauns so cleanly. "I'm Jelly," she said, smiling happily. "Sorry we had to meet under such dire circumstances, but you're clearly a pro at this."

If Chara hadn't suggested helping the others, Jelly would have been perfectly happy calling it her good deed for the day and heading back to the castle. But, since Chara had mentioned it... "Sure, I suppose the others seem like they could use a hand." Jelly raised her wand and returned to the hunt.

Arabella stumbled from the crash but once she got her balance, she got a good look at the older boy. He was pretty good-looking and had a certain aura about him. He had a sarcastic smirk on his face, one that would've made Arabella roll her eyes, but she was polite and caught herself in time.

"Excuse me, ma'am. My most sincere apologies", he said, with a small chuckle. Arabella nodded her apology as well, the small chuckle suddenly made her shy. She didn't know what to do in such an awkward situation but her chance came when she heard the giggle of a leprechaun as it dashed by. Arabella quickly waved goodbye to the boy and dashed off behind the giggling leprechaun.

Ezrin laughed, and waved back as she ran off. These leprechauns were quite fun. I wonder if I should actually help them.... Na! he laughed at the thought. He took out his wand, and started to shoot a small spell at them here and there. It was not harmful, but it irritated them, making them more rowdy. "Oi! You leprechauns! Want to make even more mischief?! Go down to the kitchens, it will cause havoc!" He saw a few of them turn to find the kitchen, and laughed. This was going to be funny.

Chara smiled at her new friend, Jelly, and they both returned to the leprechaun hunt. Chara grabbed her wand out in case she needed to use some spells or charms on the nasty, cheeky leprechauns.

She went inside the school and overheard Ezrin say, "Oi! You leprechauns! Want to cause more mischief?! Go down to the kitchens, it will cause havoc!" The fifteen-year-old whipped around to him.

"Oi!" she said waspishly. "Ezrin! Cause some mischief on your own later on, will you?" She glared and ran towards the kitchens to get the leprechauns back into their pen without a second thought.

"Ezrin! Cause some mischief on your own later on, will you?" He laughed. "But whats the fun in it when no one is around to see?!" He yelled before running after her. He wasn't going to help, but he was going to have some fun watching. If it got out of hand, or she was in danger, then he obvouisly would help, but none of that was likely. He smiled, things were getting good....

Jelly tried not to look too discouraged next to Chara’s eagerness. The Kitchens were not exactly close, and she had already run more in the last few minutes than she had been planning for her entire week. But then she remembered: the Kitchens had snacks! Maybe while she was helping to catch leprechauns, she could pick up a few tasty bites.

Perking up immediately at the thought of buttered toast, muffins, fruit salad, and all the other delightful treats that might await them in the Kitchens, Jelly trotted after Chara with renewed energy. “Come on,” she said, glad Ezrin had suggested the Kitchens and not the Dungeons or somewhere equally unpleasant. “Maybe we can lure the leprechauns into a trap using treacle tarts!”

Cobalt had just stepped out of the empty classroom where she'd been studying in her spare time when she saw a pack of green things hurtling straight for her.

She yelped and ducked quickly back into the classroom. Luckily, the things didn't seem to notice her. Something smacked straight into her face.

'Hey!' she complained, grinning as they passed her.

'Is this normal for a magical school?' She said in bemusement as she picked up the pebble that had hit her.

' ... lure the leprechauns into a trap using treacle tarts!' Cobalt stepped out of the classroom again. 'Oh hi!' she waved cheerily at the three students, 'do you know what's going on?'

Chara grinned at Jelly. Her plan was brilliant! Luring the leprechauns in with treacle tarts - she grinned again. "Brilliant idea, Jelly!" she said excitedly. "Best idea I've ever heard that involves treacle tarts!"

A different girl popped out of a classroom and waved cheerfully at them, asking what was going on. The girl had a pebble in her hand - most likely the leprechauns. "The leprechauns have escaped," Chara explained quickly, "and now they're going to the kitchens because someone" - she shot dagger eyes at Ezrin - "decided to tell them to go there and wreak havoc!"

The Slytherin perked up slightly as she said, "If you want to join us before anyone gets hurt, you can--" Chara felt a poke on her arm, and turned to see what was the matter when she saw a small band of leprechauns with... "Oh hell no," she muttered, grasping her wand tightly. "They seriously went to get knives.."
