|cw_blaise||05:23 pm - Ball Room|
The ball room is decked out with more of the fairies of light floating around the celling. Light music is provided by a live band, who will be playing waltz and chamber music for the first part, followed by a dancing beat when the students arrive.
Blaise stands by herself in the Ballroom, checking the decorations on last time. She really hopes that everyone has a good time, and that no war issues happen at the party.
"Hi, Blaise." Pansy smiled. "Looks really nice in here." She grinned as she glanced around, eyes searching for Ade. "Think Creevey'll show?"
Firenze entered the ballroom, feeling ill at ease. He had received an invitation, true, but the formal setting, so much artificial richness, gave him a painful desire to be back in the Forbidden Forest. Then again, many things gave him that desire.
It had, however, entered his mind that perhaps remaining in his classrooms would do little to protect anyone, perhaps not even himself. And so, determined, he entered the ballroom, smiling slightly as his hooves scratched the shiny floor.
Blaise grins and crosses the hall to great the professor. "Evening Professor, I'm glad you could make it. I know you don't leave Hogwarts much, I am honored that you came."
Harry entered the room and was startled by the number of people already here. He stepped to one side and looked around, hoping to see someone who wasn't a Slytherin...there seemed little chance of that.
Hermione came up beside Harry and gently elbowed him in the side, "Mister Potter." She said with a smirk.
"Hi, Hermione," Harry said, relieved to see her. "How're you? Enough Slytherins for you?"
Oliver walks in, dressed in nice formal robes. Seeing Harry, Hermione and Blaise he walks over to give his regards. "Hi Blaise, happy birthday. Harry, Hermione, nice to see you."
"Hi Oliver. I haven't seen you in a while." Blushing, Harry realised exactly how tactless that was. Of course he hadn't seen Oliver for a while. Because of Terry.
"Yeah, you've been a bit absent lately also. How have things been?" Oliver smiles back, putting a hand on Harry shoulder.
George caught the top of Hermione's hair out of the corner of his eye as he began to walk out. He turned and gaped at her for a brief moment before quietly shutting his mouth. It never ceased to amaze him how angelic Mione looked when she dressed the part.
He grinned. I think I prefer the wicked girl I see everyday.
He thought about walking over to her but changed his mind. No sense in tearing her away from the others. He took a quick sip of punch and looked around at the gathering. He didn't feel quite so cloistered now that the other Gryffindors had started to arrive.
Hermione came up behind George and tapped his s houlder, "Did you spike the punch bowl?"
"Noooo." He grinned. "Should I have?"
Lisa entered quietly and glanced about. Too many of those faeries.. too asy to trip over.. Instead she sat down at a table and listened to the band, observing the others.

Colin entered the Ballroom. He looked around but saw Blaise nowhere, instead he saw far too many Slytherins to his own taste.
At one of the tables he saw a girl, Ravenclaw if he remembered correctly. He walked over to her. "Mind if I take a seat?", he asked her.
