On a frosty December afternoon, the four schools gathered together again to witness another Trial of their champions. This time, stands and various seating arrangements were arranged in the school courtyard, facing a small platform where the judges were standing with a large screen behind them. Behind that, the towers of the school rose high into the sky.

Notably, the champions were no where to be seen, having already been escorted to their starting areas. Laurent, Bastien, Aleksi, and Sam had each given their champions a few words of advice and encouragement, as well as the official instructions for the task.

Evelyn Pierce, once again representing the Ministry (it was hard to find volunteers, surprisingly) stepped forward on the platform to address the crowd. "Welcome everyone, to the second Trial. Today, our champions will work in teams of two, their partners being the other champion from their school. These four teams are currently locked into the bottom floors of the four towers behind me. Their challenge is to be the first to climb all seven floors of the tower, solving puzzles and riddles along the way. Once they reach the balcony on the top floor, they'll send colored sparks into the sky to announce their completion of the task. Blue for Beauxbatons, red for Durmstrang, purple for Hogwarts, and gold for Ilvermorny. Don't worry; you will be able to watch them doing this on the screen behind me."

At that moment, the screen flickered to life. Four separate images filled each corner. In one, Daisi Prewitt and Chi Liao were seen talking silently - the volume hadn't been turned on yet - and across from them Morana Vlcek and Isaac Harrow were glaring at their surroundings. In another corner, Asha Patel and Lucas Vanetti appeared to be studying their environment, while in the last Skye Morris and Aiden Thomas looked to be preparing for the starting signal.

The rooms each pair of champions were in was bare, except for a moving portrait on the far wall. Behind the doorway covered by each portrait were the stairs that led to the second floor and the rest of the challenge. Evelyn's cool voice came into each of the four rooms. "On your marks. Get set. Go!"

On Go!, a light flared up on the wall above the portrait. The password is wand. The portraits looked at the champions expectantly.

((So! All four teams will be posting here, so I'm going to ask you guys to keep a handle on metagaming too much if someone figures out a puzzle before you. Obviously once you know how to solve it you can work on your character finding a clue to figure it out and whatnot, but please don't have them instantly figure it out if they previously had no idea.

This is a TEAM challenge, so work together! However, if your teammate is not posting/not pulling their weight, all of these puzzles can be solved alone. The judges are watching, and will award points based on participation in addition to the place you finish in.

Please do not post back to back posts, however you don't have to wait on your partner to post again. You can post after anyone else posts, including me as I will be posting to keep each team up to date on the results of their efforts and their new tasks as they climb floors.

Lastly, this is a RACE. Please try to keep that in mind and stay active in this thread, or your team might fall behind.))

Well, this is new. Skye didn't exactly have much confidence going into this trial. She felt like she just got by by the skin of her teeth in her duel with the Gryffindor male champion Lucas Vanetti. Though alas her partner Aiden lost his own match, but that is alright. At least he tried. Now however, this trial was going to be a team effort.

The Ilvermorny pair were going to have to solve puzzles or something along those lines. Skye found herself to be nervous about this situation. It just felt off to her, this empty room except for the portrait hanging on the wall opposite of them. And the words The password is wand flared above the portrait. Well might as well jump right into it, hopefully nothing bad happens.

Walking towards the portrait, Skye started to take out her wand. She wasn't going to get herself caught off-guard. If this is some elaborate trap, well, she isn't going to fall for it. "Umm... hello." she started to speak towards the portrait before her. "Is the password," she paused, looking up at the words just above her, "wand?" she asked, unsure of the answer. It couldn't be the easy, right?

The moment that Daisi had found out that this second challenge would be fulfilled in teams, and that she'd be working alongside Chi Liao to complete this challenge for Beauxbatons, she'd felt a hundred times better about the competition. It didn't seem to stop the buzzing of her nerves the entire morning of the second trial, but at least she knew that she wouldn't be alone. She'd listened and done her best to seem confident when Bastien Argente was consoling them about the challenge itself, but Daisi still wasn't... entirely sure that she could do this. But, at least she'd put up a fight in the first challenge, so whatever happened now, she wouldn't be a complete failure.

That, and she had Chi to help out now. Daisi wouldn't let herself be dead weight for someone who deserved this more than she did.

Swallowing, she waited alongside her partner for the challenge to start, trying to ignore the fact that there were probably hundreds of eyes on her right now. That was easy to ignore, right? Her heart thudded against her chest when suddenly, a lighted message appeared above the portrait: The password is 'wand.'

Daisi had seen a lot of the Hogwarts students using passwords to get behind closed portraits, and knew there were some in Beauxbatons' castle as well, and the portrait in front of her now was probably along the lines of the same principle. Glancing at Chi, she called out, "Wand!" at the portrait and prayed she hadn't just done something stupid.

I will break away, I'll find myself today
Since the first challenge had ended, Luke had done all he could to try to prepare himself for what to come next. It wasn't always easy, but he wanted to feel some sense of preparedness. A part of him was relieved to learn that the next one was a team one. It'd put less pressure on him to do well. He was working with his fellow champiion, and he had faith that Asha Patel would be a great partner.

After being lead into the tower, Luke quickly went about looking about the area alongside Asha. It seemed like a normal tower room at first glance. All that was inside was one portrait of a man. No hints as to how to get out, or what to even expect from the challenge. It all seemed so blank.

That is until the signal was given to kick things off. Luke jerked back slightly in surprise at the sudden loud Go!. He turned to Asha immediately, nodding his head in sign that he was ready to go. Eyes once again found the portrait, only this time a password had appeared over it once they'd been given the go to start.

That solved one thing. Walking over to the portrait, Luke looked up at it noting how the figure was staring down at him expectantly. There was no way to know if this was the right move or not. He glanced at Asha for a moment before proceeding forward. If he was wrong, and it was a trap of some sort then he was certain she'd find a way out of it. "Wand." he stated in a questionable tone, turning to look the portrait in the eye. If it worked. It worked. If not, then they'd find another way out.

A large armoured man astride a dragon looked down his nose at Skye Morris as she approached and asked him about the password. “Well of course it’s the password,” he answered snootily. He adjusted his position on his steed, tossing his hair back as he continued to scowl about the room. “Won’t do you much good, however. The door doesn’t open for just anyone.”

~~~

The portrait that Daisi Prewitt approached featured a red-haired Scottish man in a kilt, leaning on a broadsword. He chuckled as Daisi tried the password. “Aye, lass, that would be the password. Won’t do ye any good to go around shouting it, however. Only the guardian of the door can open it, and I’m afraid yer no the guardian.”

~~~

Lucas Vanetti approached a portrait of a smartly dressed brunette witch who had a twinkle in her eye and smiled at him as he approached. “Oh, very good try,” she told him warmly. “But I’m afraid the door only opens for one person, dear. I’m sure you two will figure it out, though, you look like quite a bright pair.”

As the second challenge began, Morana gave her partner, Isaac Harrow a stern glance and a nod. She hoped the worked well together; they were not just schoolmates, but yearmates and housemates. They had to have some sort of chemistry when it came to making a team effort, right? She hoped. She didn't want to fall behind on a personal level, and she also didn't want Durmstrang as a whole to look weak or fail.

At the signal, Mor watched as words appeared on the wall above a portrait. Though Durmstrang was more laden with interactive statues amd suits of armor versus paintings, there were still the responsive few in the castle. It made the most sense. She approached the portrait and uttered in her thick Serbian accent, "The passvord ist wand." W's were such a finicky letter in English, but she made clear to enunciate it as best as possible so that there was no confusion.

Oh, this is different. Skye didn't expect the portrait to be so... abrasive. Seeing the man atop the dragon in his polished armor and hair, a billowing cape behind him, well she just thought he looked so regal. But she wasn't going to let his attitude deter her. She was going to figure this out, but the room didn't seem to offer much in the way of getting through.

"Well, would you be able to give a hint or help us with a solution to this?" she asked, rolling her wand in her right hand. She wondered if she would need it right now, but just to keep safe, she'd keep it out. "And may I ask your name? I would like to know who you are, you seem like a wonderful person." she asked with a smile. Despite his abrasive attitude towards her, she still thought he might be an interesting person to chat with. He seemed like it, having been able to tame and ride a dragon.

So far things seem to be going well. Chi had won his duel during his first trial, though it seemed like luck was on his side that day. Now he was in what appear to be a bare room with Daisi Prewitt. There were some words and encouragement from Bastien Argente from earlier, though Chi wasn't paying that much attention. This next trial was making him a bit more nervous than he thought he was. He just hoped that he wouldn't be a lousy teammate. He would try to do his best to help Daisi out.

"We got this," Chi told Daisi. "Let's show them what Beauxbatons really made of." He then gave her a reassuring smile as the waited for the trial to began.

As soon as someone said, "Go," a light flared up on the wall above the portrait. The password is wand. So Chi watched as Daisi shouted password at the portrait. The portrait was one that featured a red-haired Scottish man in a kilt, leaning on a broadsword. The man told Daisi that only the guardian could open the door.

"Can You give us a hint who the guardian would be?" Chi asked the portrait. Chi the portrait could shed a little light to who the guardian would be.

The young blonde woman in the portrait that Morana Vlcek approached giggled at her when she informed her that the password was wand. “Yep!” she chirped. She saluted Mor with her own wand, then leaned in close. “You’re really not suppose to say it though,” she told her in a stage whisper. “I can’t just open the door just like that, you know. It doesn’t work like that.”

~~~

The knight on the back of the dragon sniffed derisively at Skye Morris. “I could, I suppose,” he answered instead of being actually helpful. When she asked about him, however, he appeared to perk up and be genuinely interested in speaking to her. “I am Sir Gideon Darrington, dragontamer and goblin slayer,” he announced proudly, on a roll now, he continued to brag about himself. “Though, currently my duty is not so glamourous. I guard this door, and let none pass. Only I can open it by speaking the password, and I have been charged with not doing so lightly.”

~~~

As Chi Liao approached him, the Scottish man appraised him, and, noting his partnership with the fine redheaded lass who had originally spoken to him, nodded. “Aye, that I will lad. I am this door’s guardian, and only I can speak the password. Ye may make a case for me to let ye in, if ye like, and I can judge whether or no I should. Or ye may find a way to make, or trick, me into saying it, that is also allowed. But this door willnae open until I speak the word.”

This knight seemed like he wasn't going to help them out, but there had to be a way. Maybe getting to know him would do the trick? Maybe some clue that could get the two Thunderbirds through this door and onto the next task? But how? Skye's ears perked upon his introduction of himself, and she beamed brightly with a smile wide.

"Well met Sir Darrington, I'm Skye Morris. I'm a Champion of Ilvermorny, but that doesn't sound as distinguished as your life." she said with a slight bow, which seemed to be proper. Well from the muggle movies and books she had read, that is what someone of common birth is supposed to do, right?

"I think guarding is a very noble thing. But I suspect you wish to live out your memories right? The glory days of old? Tell me about them, I would love to hear them!" she exclaimed, her smile still spread across her lips. If there is one thing that Skye loved, it was memories. Making them and remembering them. And if she could hear the tales from this knight, all the better.

The second the Scottish fellow within the portrait spoke, Daisi could feel her heart drop ever so slightly as she glanced at Chi helplessly. Only the guardian? She took it personally for only a slight second before she forced herself to shake it off. None of this was personal, she had to believe that. Swallowing, she ran a hand through her long red curls and sighed. At least Chi had the bravery to just flat out ask.

At the portrait's answer, though, Daisi seemed to perk up, her gaze taking in the so-called guardian of the doorway with a brightened, hopeful look. She looked at Chi once more. Asking the portrait bluntly had already worked once before, maybe it could again?

She took a breath before offering a shy smile at the Scottish man in the portrait. "Well, we don't want to trick you, and I don't think either of us would be very good at that," she said honestly. Or maybe Chi was a trickster. She genuinely didn't know him well enough to guess, though she might by the end of this trial. "My name's Daisi, and this is Chi. Do you think you could let us through, ser, for our school? It'd be much appreciated. Or is there something you'd like in particular?" Nervously, she waited to see if the portrait would have an answer for her.

Asha looked at Lucas Vanetti and returned his nod. He tried telling the portrait the password just as she would have. It said, however, that it would only work for one person. Ashe stepped forward. "There are only two of us in here... though I don't understand why only one of us can pass if we're supposed to be a team?" She looked at the woman in the portrait and smiled. "And that's what we are." she said, feeling sure of herself. "We're a team. So right now, WE are one. May we pass?" she asked. "With the password wand." She said, presenting hers at the same time.

Mor reached for her own wand instinctively as the portrait did, while she waited for the translation spell to wrap up the woman in the paintings' words. So maybe it was jumpy of her...but she had no idea what to expect. Besides, she didn't trust anyone, even a portrait. Who knew if the woman would cast a spell at her. Could portraits even do that? Glancing back and forth between Isaac Harrow and the portrait with curiosity, Mor tried again with just a single word. "...wand?" she stated with hesitation in her voice.

Sir Gideon preened when it appeared the young female champion before him seemed more interested in him than in getting passed him. If there was one thing he liked, it was attention from fair maidens. His chest puffed up proudly. “Of course, fair lady, it would be my pleasure. Would you like to hear about how I tamed this dragon?” The knight, without waiting for an answer, went off into a tale about bravery and heroics featuring himself besting and taming the beast he now rode. After about two minutes of this, he switched to tell her about the time he beat the Ordrin the gruesome, a terrible goblin leader.

“... and then I whipped out my wand and - oh! Oh heavens!” he exclaimed as the portrait swung forward to reveal an opened doorway beyond. “Well, good luck in your adventure young lady! I’m normally hanging in the west wing, on the fourth floor. Come and see me if you would like to hear more of my adventures!”

~~~

The Scotsman returned to peering at Daisi, a small smile appearing as she admitted they didn’t want to trick him. He nodded slowly as she made her request. “Aye, for the honor of the clan is a good reason. And I never could resist the request of a pretty lass with hair as red as yours. Aye, lass, I’ll let the pair of ye through. Fair the well, Mistress Daisi and Master Chi. Wand,” he announced, letting his portrait swing forward to open the passage beyond.

~~~

The brunette woman smiled mischievously as Asha approached and made her case for the two of them to be let through. “Well, I must say, that wasn’t exactly the point of this riddle. But I like it. I approve of team work, and if you two keep on presenting a united front like this, you’ll have my blessing to move forward.” She nodded at them and spoke the password, “Wand,” thus letting them move forward.

~~~

The blonde giggled again as she appeared to have confused the pair in front of her. But all her bubbly charm started to vanish once Morana tried the password again. “No, no no!” she pouted, flouncing against her frame and crossing her arms. “That’s not how you play the game! You can’t just keep repeating ‘wand’ and get what you want!” Her frame started lurching forward, having gotten the password from her, and the blonde howled in frustration. “No, no, you cheated! That’s not fair!” However, the door stood open, allowing Morana and Isaac to continue.

((Judge note: Durmstrang was actually, surprisingly, the first through the puzzle, as Mor managed to frustrate her portrait rather quickly. Beauxbatons and Hogwarts made it through about the same time by presenting a united front to their portraits and appealing to what was likeable about them. Due to the amount of time Sir Gideon spent talking about himself, Ilvermorny was the last school through the door. However, as all of you figured it out fairly quickly, this won’t affect your abilities to continue to post onto the second floor, but will just be an interesting note for scoring.))

"Oh, thank you, ser!" Daisi chirped, a wide and excited grin spilling onto her face when it seemed that the portrait would be willing to let them through. She couldn't help the slight flush on her cheeks when he complimented her hair, and she self-consciously touched it as if to acknowledge its presence. Her personal appearance genuinely wasn't something she thought about very often. She hardly counted herself pretty.

Unsure if portraits could still hear even as they swung open, as she gently touched Chi's arm as though to signal him to stay beside her, Daisi bounced forward with a glow on her face. "Again, thank you so much! Merci! Passez une bonne journee! I hope to see you again!" It did briefly occur to her to wonder where these portraits had come from, but for now, the open stairwell was her sole focus.

Daisi darted up the stairs, assured that Chi was alongside her, hoping to confront the next challenge.

A look of satisfaction crossed Mor's lips as the blonde woman in the portrait proceeded to throw a fit as the frame began to swing open, revealing the pathway to the second level. Mor really disliked most other females, but especially bratty, entitled ones. She stuck her tongue out at the back of the portrait, proudly met eyes with her partner, Isaac Harrow, and then proceeded through the doorway.

Skye listened to the tale that the dragon knight had begun to weave, and his words were full of bravado and confidence. It was a tale that was fraught with danger and excitement. To her, it was a wonderful thing. The memories of the past, and how they seemed to be so fresh in the portrait's mind. She just listened intently as he went on with his tale. A smile a constant on her face.

When Sir Darrington said the word wand, the portrait swung open. Skye let out a surprised gasp, having forgotten about the task at hand and having gotten lost in the tale by the knight. She nodded at Sir Gideon, "Once I'm done with the challenge, I'll be sure to visit you Sir Gideon, I would love to hear more about your adventures. But for now, I must depart! See you soon!" she called out, quickly moving up the stairs into the next floor.

I will break away, I'll find myself today
After his initial attempt to get past the portrait had failed, Luke stepped back to allow Asha to try to figure things out. Admittedly her idea was a better one. Presenting them as a team, rather than two different individuals. It seemed to work. The woman in the portrait allowed them to pass after speaking the password herself.

"Of course. We're a team, and we'll keep working as one." He tossed the comment at the portrait, a slight smile crossing his features. Luke didn't think he'd done anything, not yet, but as long as they stuck together then they could win.

Seeing the staircase revealed, as the portrait swung open Luke waited a bit before entering. Asha had figured out the challenge, so it made sense to let her enter first. He followed not long after, making sure to stick close to his fellow champion. As he darted up the stairs along with Asha, Luke tried to mentally prepare himself for the next challenge that lie ahead. Whatever they were to confront next, he suspected it would be more difficult than tricking their way past a portrait.

Upon making it to the second floor, a long hallway lays before the Champions. At the end of the hallway is a door that the teams must make it to. Between the two doorways, however, the walls are lined with suits of armor, all of which are armed. The room is lit by a large chandelier with candles hanging from the ceiling. The floor between the two doors is stone, and no obstructions lay between the Champions and the door at the far end. There is a raised plaque that held a message to the Champions right inside the door as they entered.

The way ahead lays open and clear,
But that does not mean there’s nothing to fear.
Every puzzle has more than one answer
Take a moment to choose your manner.
Brave ahead down the middle
Or take a chance on the riddle.


Then, below that, the following riddle was written.

It can not be seen whenever it's there
It fills up a room, it's much like the air.
It can not be touched, there's nothing to hear
It is quite harmless, there's nothing to fear.

Mor made her way to the second floor with Isaac Harrow. Reading the plague, Mor contemplated the riddle below's meaning for a few moments. Glancing down the hall, she sized up the suits of armor, observed the light sources, and went back to the riddle. "Darkness? she said aloud curiously. "Are you afraid of the dark, Isaac?" she teased, before aiming her wand at the chandelier above. "Aguamenti!" she cast, watching as a jet of water escaped her wand and extinguished the flames of the candles. The hallway went pitch black. In the shadows, she grasped Isaac's hand and whispered, "Let's go. Straight. This way," before beginning cautiously and slowly down the pitch black hall in the direction she had hopefully memorized correctly as straight towards the door. She had no idea what the suits of armor would do when they got there, but hopefully her answer to the riddle was correct and it disarmed them or something. She doubted it would be that easy, but it was worth a shot. Better than nothing, anyway.
