RotBTD: Hogwarts AU (Goblet of Fire)
“Now, now” spoke North, his accent thick as the students of Hogwarts, Durmstrang Institute and Beauxbatons Academy of Magic hurried to find a seat. The whispers in the Great Hall eventually grew quiet. “Sit down!”
In the back, the famous quartet looked on as they sat together, separate from the other students who sat with their own houses. The Goblet of Fire illuminated its blue light across the dimly lit hall.
“Now it is the moment you all have been waiting for! The champion selection!” The headmasters voice echoed. Raising his hand, he used magic to put out the fires that hung above every bodies head as the room grew darker. With slow steps, North approached the cup, his hand almost touching the flames as he skimmed his hands across it. Moments later, he took a step back.
Trying to see past Hiccup’s head, Jack watched in hidden anticipation of who will be chosen as the first champion.
The Goblet of Fires blue fire suddenly turned red with a flame bursting up high as a small burn paper landed in North’s hand. The red flames gradually turned blue once again.
Looking at the paper, North shouted “The champion from Durmstrang, Flynn Rider!”
Behind him, the table of men all cheered for the chosen champion as he confidently got up and shook the headmasters’ hand. North patted his back and gesture towards the spot for the selected champions.
Hearing a giggle, Jack looked behind him to see Merida whispered into Rapunzel’s ear as the Ravenclaw giggled once more. Jack frowned and raised an eyebrow at Hiccup who rolled his eyes in return before turning his attention back to the next chosen champion.
Another, slightly larger, burn paper made its way into North’s hand. “The champion from Beauxbatons, Eep Crood!”
Cheers took place once again as the chosen walked her towards North, her walk was noticeably different from the other Beauxbatons but her confident was equal to Flynn’s as she stood next to him.
With the last paper deciding the champion from Hogwarts, the Hall grew silent once more.
“After this selection, we will have our third champion for the the Triwizard Tournament. But in the end, only one will go down in history. Only one will hoist this chalets of champions, this vessel of victory,” He turned around to point “The Triwizard Cup!”
At his words, the trophy was revealed to all to awe in its glory. The whole room cheered for it was a glorious day indeed, but all was cut short when the professor Bunnymund noticed something was wrong with the cup.
North turned around, indeed there was something wrong. The Goblet of Fire’s flames were spiraling and slowly turning red once again. The headmaster approached the cup once again, his expression was unreadable. The cup was choosing without the hosts permission.
With a bright flame high in the air, another paper came out
With a laugh, North tried to ease the tension “I guess we have our champion from Hogwarts ready. Now, the champion from Hogwarts is…” He trailed off, his eyes widen at the sight of the name
“Jack Frost” he whispered. He looked around swiftly “Jack Frost” he spoke louder.
Everyone in the Great Hall looked around for the boy.
Jack stayed stuck to his seat, his expression was the same as the headmasters.
“No, no, no” Rapunzel whispered
“JACK FROST!” Screamed North
Merida stood up and pulled Jack’s arm “Come on.”
Rapunzel tugged her sweater “Stop it, Merida. Please.”
The Gryffindor turned to her “He’s bin chosen.” She lightly pushed Jack forward “Gou on. North is waiting for yah.”
Hiccup looked at his friend. This was all wrong.
Getting over his shock, Jack stood up from his seat, sending the blonde Ravenclaw a reassuring smile before making his way through the silent crowd and to North. This was unbelievable, he was actually chosen. He didn’t know how it happened, but somewhere in the back of his mind, he was happy he was picked. Pushing all logic away and not reading the situation, a smile almost made a way onto his face until he was in front of North.
North, whose face was unreadable handed Jack the paper. The Slytherin glanced at it as he began to walk towards the other champions.
Jack stopped in his tracks “…Hiccup?” he whispered.
North turned to him sharply “What did you say?”
Jack quickly crumbled the paper as North went closer to him. He shook his head “Nothing. I didn’t say anything.”
Grabbing the paper out of Jack’s hand, he opened it up and looked it over then flipping it back and forth numerous of times.
“Two champions on a single paper…” he whispered. He then yelled “There is another champion! Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III come forward!”
Professor Stoick stood up, slamming his fist on the table “What du think yu doing, North! This is madness!”
“Silence, Stoick. There is nothing you could do. He has been chosen.”
Stoick clenched his fist.
“No! He can’t bae chosen! It mus-!” Merida yelled as she got up from her seat
Hiccup stood up, grabbing Merida’s hand before she said anymore “It’s fine Mer.” He swallowed “Everything’s going to be alright.” He let go of her hand to join Jack. They two boys glanced at each other before walking towards the other champions.
On their way, cries and whispers could be heard:
“They aren’t even 17 yet!”
Hiccup stayed silent while Jack made eye contact with professor Bunnymound as they passed by him.
This was really happening.
I already have the whole series of RIse of the Brave Tangled Dragons in Hogwarts AU planned out in my head, which follows the basic outline of the Harry Potter series. But in my head(imagination), both Jack and Hiccup get chosen to participate in the tournament that way Hiccup can get more involved with the dragons and Jack will eventually faces Pitch(Voldemort) once again.
Once in a while I’ll post different scenes from the series along with more manip art. The big four in Hogwarts is one of my favorite AU’s after all.
