Click! Click! Click!

The class were heartily sick of Colin Creevey by now. He'd been buzzing around the whole day, annoying them with his photos. But now for some reason it felt like he wanted the class to curse him, and was actively encouraging them to do so. Eventually their patience snapped, and several spells slammed in to Colin as he raised his camera one more time. Sighing in relief, the class turned back to their cauldrons.

"What a great picture! Look, you can see all the spells hitting me and everything!"

Disbelieving, the class span back and stared. Colin sat, singed, battered and bruised but just as cheerful as ever, holding his camera and beaming at the class.

GuyCliquil is Colin Creevy, a Gryffindor

Employing a seldom seen mix of cooperation and competence, most of the class had finished their potions by the time Snape demanded that they sample them. Harry, who as usual hadn't been paying attention for much of the lesson, had produced a slightly poor attempt, but the only side effect as he gulped it down were some odd hiccups that sounded like a frog's croak.

Neville Longbottom had, as always, had an abysmal potions lesson. He typically botched whatever he was trying to brew, but this time he'd barely even started. Snape, with a thin lipped smile, looked at Neville expectantly as he sampled his potion. His smile turned to a frown as steam gushed from Neville's ears, his skin writhed unpleasantly, and he crashed to the floor, feet kicking wildly and sending cauldrons spinning across the room. When Neville sat up he no longer looked like Neville; in his place was a dishevelled and nervous looking Draco Malfoy. The rest of the class left quickly as the bell rang, leaving Draco to face Snape's chastisement.

Mendax was Draco Malfoy, a Slytherin

The rest of the week proceeded without incident until the big Quidditch match at the weekend. Half of the Gryffindor team were in the hospital wing, but luckily Quidditch is a fatally flawed game with a ludicrous scoring system that means the winner is entirely dependent on who catches the Snitch. Harry Potter, alive and well, did so to the tumultuous applause of three quarters of the school. The Slytherin plot to foil the Gryffindors had been foiled, and they were the Quidditch Cup Champions. The three students who had been replaced turned up over the next week or so, only a little worse for wear, and gradually the rest of the class was discharged from the hospital wing.

The Gryffindors win!

Amazing game, despite it taking a while.

WHAT THE FUCK WAS GUY PLAYING AT?!!! ;)

I wonder what other bits of the game design we missed...

Did we shortcut a day? I'm not sure exactly why mendax got caught today rather than one more lesson.

I had a weird win condition whereby I had to predict who would be killed 3 times in a row.

I also had a 1 shot immunity. I hoped it hadn't been used up but it seems it had! :D . I was aiming to be the second, and get you to lynch Mendax tomorrow with a full reveal, possibly, or further shenanigans.

I assume instead of us hexing him he got killed by the potions class mechanic

So, answers to the two questions that have come up so far:

1. Mendax was killed by the mechanics of the potion lesson, primarily because you meanies hadn't given him time to brew his potion.

2. Guy hadn't used his one shot protection up, but as I'd written it killing him the first time also confirmed his identity. He successfully made 2 of the required 3 guesses to win, but you lot were too efficient in getting rid of Mendax in this same lesson.

Ah I seeeee... So in fact I was one shot away from it coming to fruition!

Well that sucks. I miss one day and get taken out by a random mechanic I didn't know existed.

It was an interesting format. I appreciated it.

The potions recipe was a nice one.
