He knocked on the door of his parents old home. It was weird being here... but he knew this is where he'd likely find Melinda.

He frowned in kind. "Is there something wrong?"

"Can I come in?" he asked. "It's not really a... door-step conversation."

He shook his head. "No, I'm okay." He hesitated and then plunged in. "So... I met Nicholas."

He frowned. "Uhm... yeah. I didn't see Dad. Just Nicholas. I didn't know who he even was at first. He was just... out on the street. Crying."

And you still wanted to have a relationship with him was on the tip of Thomas' tongue, but he didn't say that. "Well... he was crying for a different reason when I saw him." He cringed. "Uhm, he said... that his Dad's... dead."

"Yeah," he said, wincing. "I... I don't know. Maybe they're still looking into his family and that's why we haven't heard anything?" He shrugged. "But... he said that his Dad was dead. He also said that Dad told him you were absolutely crazy-- a mad woman. I let him know you weren't."

"Kids are impressionable," he said with a shrug. He paused. "Yes... but aren't you gone for long periods at a time? Wouldn't it make more sense for him to go to Charity or... Mark or me?"

He came downstairs when he smelled breakfast. He didn't need the cane to walk around anymore, which was nice. "Morning."

"Is there coffee?" He asked as he sat down.

"Thank you," he said with a grateful smile. "Someday... maybe you can teach me to cook. I... have no memory of ever being in a kitchen."

He nodded, the memory not having any sort of familiarity. "Well, looks like we'll have to resume those lessons."

He shook his head. "I'll be fine to do some work. I'm stronger than I think you give me credit for."




NewEric

He nodded. "Regardless... I'm fine to more work on my mind."

"I want to figure out why the story of how we met was familiar," he said with determination in his voice.

"It's the only way I can see to getting my old self back."

He nodded, making sure to eat his fill so he'd have enough stamina to last through to get to his memory chamber.

He nodded. "Certainly."

As they entered Eric's mind, the mindscape looked the same as normal, at first glance. It was still his parents house, but the portraits along the wall were no longer Selwyn family members... they were famous Quidditch players. And the sound of loud cheering, though clearly from far away, was definitely audible.

He frowned, looking around and nodding. "Yeah... The changes they made must be slowly coming down..." He shook his head. "We can ascertain and deal with that later." He started walking down towards the entrance to the dungeons again.




Game Master

Eric was pleased that the guardian they'd previously dealt with hadn't come back. They walked down a corridor and Eric opened up another door and the landscape shifted.

They were in the Slytherin Common Room. At the center was a large pensieve, with shelves built around it. The shelves contained small vials, all clearly marked. Memories. Off to the left was a fireplace where a dark-haired girl dressed as a maid was sweeping the floor in front of it.

 – 01:20, March 22, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded slowly. "And it doesn't make any sense for it to be the Common Room... something my parents must have done." He looked over at the maid. "Who are you?"


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 01:20, March 22, 2019 (UTC)~
The girl stood up. She was a mirror replica of Melinda, except that the maid wore a hardened expression on her face. "No one for you to mind."



NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 01:26, March 22, 2019 (UTC)

"But I didn't create this. So... my parents... put you here?" He looked over at Maid-Melinda. "Who are you?"


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 01:28, March 22, 2019 (UTC)
Her expression and tone would remain the same. "No one for you to mind."



NewEric

 – 01:31, March 22, 2019 (UTC)~

He shook his head. "There shouldn't be any junk in here." He slowly started to approach her. "She hasn't moved from the fireplace."


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 01:35, March 22, 2019 (UTC)
She would slowly move away from the fireplace though not too far and start rearranging some of the vials on a nearby shelf.

"Something's off," he said shaking his head. "Everything they've done in my head was a clear, deliberate choice. Putting you in here... they'd have done it for something malicious."




NewEric

 – 01:42, March 22, 2019 (UTC)

"But I wouldn't have remembered you otherwise," he said, frowning. He moved over to the shelves. "I have to find that memory. The one of where we met." He started looking through vials, hoping one was labeled with that Ministry Ball Melinda had spoken of.




Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 01:46, March 22, 2019 (UTC)
The maid Melinda would move over to a specific bookshelf and pull out a half dozen vials of memories offering them to Eric. They'd all be labeled "Ball" and have different dates on them.


NewEric

 – 01:47, March 22, 2019 (UTC)

He groaned and looked to Melinda. "What year was that ball? Do you remember?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 02:02, March 22, 2019 (UTC)

He reshelved a few that had very recent dates. There were a few that were clearly too early. "Let's try 2032," he said, dumping the contents into the pensive.




Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 02:08, March 22, 2019 (UTC)
They would find themselves in the middle of a ball room elegantly decorated with figures all in masks moving around, dancing, and generally enjoying themselves. They would be like ghosts in the memory with people able to move through them and both of them looking slightly transparent.



NewEric

 – 02:10, March 22, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. He watched the scene play out as they met, and eventually started dancing. "That... was you," he said softly.

 – 12:49, March 22, 2019 (UTC)

He frowned and looked sharply at her. "What?"

Ooc: Emmett wasn't in on that attack. He got involved later, with the attack in Hogsmeade.




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 19:29, March 22, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "I wonder if there's a way to... pause the memory," he said softly, approaching himself and Melinda dancing. "This is my mind... right? If I could just... take off your mask..."




NewEric

-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 14:03, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

He snapped his fingers, and the memory stopped playing. He moved over to the woman, looking her over for a moment before trying to touch the edges of her mask.


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 14:15, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
As he touched her his hands would go through her like smoke. This was just a memory...he could stop it, rewind, or look at details he might not have noticed before but couldn't actually change or affect it.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 14:31, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He sighed. "I really wanted that to work."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 14:36, March 26, 2019 (UTC)~

"But if I can get you back..." He looked over at her. "What if that's what brings everything back?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 14:45, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He looked at her, then at the memory of her. He closed his eyes for a brief moment, and in the next Melinda was a perfect picture of the woman in the memory, right down to the mask.




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 14:49, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He moved next to her, the memory still frozen, and gently lifted her mask.

OOC: Since you've been GMing... sort of lol. I guess I'm not sure this would work. :( Do you have thoughts?




Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 14:56, March 26, 2019 (UTC)
Eric would feel a sharp pain in his mind and they would hear a rumble light thunder. Small bolts of lightning would dance around over their heads through the memory for a moment and then everything would settle back. Eric would feel close...like there was a memory right there but also just out of his grasp. It was the same feeling of knowing you've forgotten something but being unable to remember what it was. It was almost tangible but the pain in his mind would intensify driving out his thoughts and they would find themselves both sprawled on the ground back in the antechamber.

He sat up, his head pounding. He looked around to see if Melinda was okay.




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:02, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

He was relieved to see that she was okay. "Yeah," he said. "But I think that's... about all we can do for now."
