    As a follow on to the other Harry Potter thread we've created a 'Potter-esque Bandsmans Story'

    The story so far . . .

    'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Butterbeer'

    It's the pivotal sixth novel in the seven-part tale of Harry Potter's training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the Dursleys, so joins the Hogwart's Silver Band with Hermione and Ron, conducted by the flambouyent, Gilderoy Lockhart who has been discharged from hospital following the Devil's Snare incident on his ward. Harry dreams about winning the Whit Friday March Contest playing 'The Wizard' and wants to find out about the mysterious event that's supposed to take place at Delph, and set's out with his trusted companions on the Whit Friday March. However, he encounters the evil Wind Band on route led by Draco Malfoy and turns to Hagrid for advice.
    "There is a special place where you need to go Harry", says Hagrid. "You will gather all the information needed to help you in your quest". "Where is this special place, Hagrid" asks Harry.

    "You want to go 'n' look on theMouthpiece.com, 'arry" said Hagrid.

    Harry went to the Library with Hermione and with a special charm Professor Flitwick had taught him immediately signed up on tMP . . . .

    Nat had suggested that they use the Serpensortia Spell but that only succeeded in multiplying the number of snakes by ten each time. After several hours, with the exception of Nat no-one had replied to Harry and Hermione’s plea for help, so the story continues . . . .

    The bus driver, Hagrid, was now trying to get the Hogwart’s Silver Band back onto the triple-decker knight bus.
    “Come on ‘arry the runner’s signed us in at Uppermill” he said. The Band member’s scrambled back onto the bus.
    “What about the snakes Hagrid” said Harry.
    “Don’ worry ‘arry, I know a short cut”.
    Within a few minutes the purple bus was back on the road and heading towards Uppermill. Lots of bands were waiting to play so Angelina Johnson signed them in and they waited their turn.
    Harry, Ron and Hermione soon became bored and wondered off in search of clues about the mysterious event that’s supposed to take place at Delph. As they meandered through the narrow streets they talked to the locals, but to no avail. The townsfolk of Uppermill knew the secret of Delph, but wouldn’t tell a sole, their feared for their lives. Whispers soon spread around the village and the hustle and bustle of the high street soon diminished into a hushed murmur.
    The rest of Hogwart’s Silver Band were getting ready to play and were forming up in their ranks.
    Neville Longbottom, who was depping on BBb Bass said “Where’s Harry and Hermione”. “I don’t know” said Luna Lovegood the band’s principal trombone. “Here they come” shouted Ginny Weasley”.
    Hagrid didn’t look too pleased with Harry and Hermione as they came rushing up to the band puffing and panting.
    “Don’t forget your instruments are still on the coach you two” said Neville as he stood their holding a bass drum stick but no bass drum!
    “Wingardium Leviosa” said Hermione as she waved her wand at the bus, and with a swish and flick their instruments came flying out of the window.
    The stewards, who were now getting a little impatient, signalled for the band to move off, and within a few seconds they were parading down the high street to the march ‘Something Wicked this Way Comes’. A very loud ‘Beurgh’ was heard to be shouted from the waiting crowd when the march was announced. It was obvious BOC Brass were in town, although it was difficult to recognise them in their black trilbies and dark glasses.
    On the contest platform they performed George Allen’s famous and appropriate march ‘The Wizard’ but during the performance Harry had spotted something odd in the crowd.
    Professor Snape was disguised as the official photographer, so what had happened to Paddo and his sidekick Colin Creevey?
    As soon as they finished playing Harry realised that The Evil Wind Band had been spying on their performance and wondered what on earth they could be up to. Were they also after the secrets of Delph? They just had to get to Delph before the Evil Wind Band could stop them.

    Back on the bus it was announced that Hogwart’s Silver had been signed in at Dobcross. This was met with disappointment from Harry and his friends.
    “We’ve got to get to Delph before the Evil Wind Band” said Hermione. “I do know that” said Harry, deep in thought. “But how?”
    On their arrival at Dobcross they started the long trek up to the bandroom for a well deserved butterbeer and burger. At the entrance to the Bandroom Harry spotted Mad Eye Moody, Lupin and Tonks. They had come to the Whits to support Harry and the band.
    “I’ve got it” said Harry. “If we can persuade Mad Eye, Lupin and Tonks to dep for us we can then sneak off to Delph without anyone noticing”. After a brief discussion and a couple of glasses of Polyjuice potion they changed identities.
    As Hogwart’s Band set off on the march again Harry, Ron and Hermione sneaked off towards Delph.
    As they entered the village of Delph which was the twin town of Hogsmeade, the evening air had turned cold. The sun had long gone and a dark red glow lay low in the sky. As they walked towards The Three Broomsticks, the local tavern, they realised the Evil Wind Band had arrived before them and having consumed a number of Butterbeers had spilled out onto the street! :roll: They remembered Harry’s invisibility cloak was in his gig bag and so the three of them managed to sneak past the Slytherins unnoticed.
    Suddenly they felt the air turn icy cold and they were thrown into complete darkness. Harry could hear screaming in the distance.
    “Harry, w-w-what’s h-h-happening” stammered Ron. But Harry did not answer, he had lost consciousness. Hermione turned to Ron and said “Oh no, it’s Voldemort’s Flying French Horns”.

    So, what happened next? It's over to you now to continue the story.

    “Not the evil flying French horns!” cried Hermione. “We must cover our ears or the sound will kill us all!”

    Ron shouted in a scared and shaky voice "Finite Incantatem" and...

    Hermione said: 'No you idiot! The proper incantation is 'Da Capo sans repetitum'!

    'Would that be said with the emphasis on the 'tit'? Asked Ron, only to emit a pained 'Owwwwww' when Hermione slapped his face......

    Despite the kamikaze of evil French horns headed fast their way, Ron still found time to shout "What is wrong with Finite Incantatem?... You are such a know it all Hermione, you ought to go back on the percussion section with an attitude like that!!"...

    But Ron soon piped down when Hermione threatened him with a 'Nannygoatus Vibratosa' spell.

    'But why don't you use that on the flying French horns??' pleaded Ron. 'They're bound to recoil at the sound of a rapid 1950s brass band style vibrato!'

    'Good idea, Ron' said Hermione. So, she waved her wand..... and......
  8. The spell flew from Hermione's wand and hit the nearest four french horns which began to emit a rather grotesque vibrato effect. The remainder of the horns stopped and rather than risk their career's as orchestral brass instrument's, they fled.

    Ron was quick to try and claim credit for his idea with the nannygoatus vibratum spell but Hermione quietened him by ...

    beating him senseless with a flying french horn, that was older and slower than the others, and had fallen to the ground whimpering in pain when the vibrato began.
  10. Fortunatly for Ron, Harry came round and stopped Hermione. Their next destination was Lydgate ...

    Raising his 9.5 inch feathery conductors stick in the air in celebration. Harry suddenly realised the destination to Lydgate had been blocked with a collection of BBb bass mutes. All he had was a half-empty bottle of butterbeer (which he had kept in his pocket for the bus journeys) and a very sharp sovereign sop which kept telling him play "Flight of the bumblebee" like his mate, Wizard Peter Roberts used to.

    Using quick-wits and a far-reaching knowledge of brass band music, Harry started to stride towards the mutes that blocked their way.
  12. ... a quick blast of 'Senzatum Sordinus' had the mutes scattered and freed the way to Lydgate ...

    Harry held up his wand hand and the Knight Bus once again appeared out of nowhere. Hagrid said ' 'urry up 'arry, we shoulda been at Lydgate by now'. Harry quickly climbed onto the bus and Gilderoy Lockhart attempted to tune Harry's very sharp sovereign sop but . . .

    the incantaion of sharpus nomoreus didnt seem to work!
    instead of making the instrument sound as sweet as the wizard roberts, a great big hefalump apeard out of the end of lockhearst wand and proceeded to sit on the instrument.
    NO said hermione you should have......

    ...used the flatuss slightus spell!

    "Well that's one thing for sure, at least it's not sharp anymore" said Ron, and just as he was congratulating himself on his witty and somewhat annoying comment....

    ..... He saw Trigger's avatar, wondering if that was a glass of butterbeer she was drinking...... 'Muggles don't have access to butterbeer do they?' Ron asked of Hagrid. 'No, they have a watered down version called Florabeer, rich in polyunsaturates. Gets a bit gassy moind. Reminds me of a rhyme I adapted from a muggle kids' version. Florabeer is good for your heart. The more you drink, the more you......'

    'That's ENOUGH Hagrid!' demanded Hermione. 'It was bad enough when Harry and Ron came to the Gryffindor common room reciting that muggle Limerick about the young man from Brazil!'

    'Really? I don't remember tellin' 'em that one. How does that go.....? asked Hagrid

    And despite Hermione's best efforts Ron and Harry pranced onto the bus chanting: 'There was a young man from Brazil, who swallowed a gunpowder pill. His bum backfired, his belly retired and his bol......
  17. .... and caused the whole bus to begin inventing limericks, much to Hermione's distress!

    Just then, a rather clean cut looking stranger appeared on the bus.

    'Who are you?' demanded Hermione. The stranger gave her his calling card.

    'HRH Prince Eran Malfoy....... You must be related to Draco and Lucius. Shouldn't you be with those scrotey Slytherins?' asked Ron

    Prince Malfoy merely stood there saying nothing.

    'He doesn't LOOK like a Malfoy' said Harry. Then Hermione noticed the letters of Malfoy's name on the calling card swirl and change. Eventually, it became obvious.

    'Run, Harry, run!', exclaimed Hermione 'HRH Prince Eran Malfoy is an anagram of..........

    'What, Hermione?'

    'I'm a French horn player!' At that point, Malfoy opened his mouth to make the ripping sound of the French horn a la 'Milk Tray advert'.......

    but ron, quick thinking as always :roll: ,jammed his fist into the strangers mouth.
    "Run!!" he shouted as the stranger started to bite to get him off.
    harry and hermione didnt waste another minute and legged it off the bus.
    as sson as they were clear there was a cry of pain, followed by a sound that could only be described as a french horn.
    Hermione turned to harry, tears streaming down her face.
    "Harry, you don't think Ron's.... dead do you?"
    "No," harry replied as a figure lurched towards them from the general direction of the bus, "but he's...."
  20. ... going to have to be demoted from 4th man! There'll be no way he be able to play cornet after that bite!

    As they ran from HRH Prince Eran Malfoy and the sound of Mahler's first symphony blaring at them. Harry came up with a wonderful idea to escape Malfoy's Horn! ...
