Faith's Room

Faithbedroom

Coming in from the hallway of the East Wing, you'll find the room Charity created for Faith. Capitalizing on Faith's love of books, there are bookshelves everywhere. The bed, facing a large window for optimal natural light to read, has lots of pillows to snuggle up with so that Faith can curl up in her private reading oasis.

She'd knock quietly on the door.

She was still in the process of getting settled. Emily's crib was in a corner, and the room had been widened, magically, to accomodate for the space needed. She opened the door, expecting Ash, Charity or one of the kiddos... and was surprised to see Jaina. "Jaina! Please come in," she said, moving aside. "How did you know I was here?"



Jaina Nordskov4

"I went to your house and clearly nobody was living there so I owled your sister and she said you were here." She'd move into the room and glance around before looking Faith up and down as if checking she was whole. "She...told me Dakota had disappeared. What happened?"

"He was named Headmaster at the start of the school year... and about a month in, couldn't handle the stress of it. He disappeared the same day of Emily's first birthday... and I haven't seen him since." The words were spoken dully, with little emotion.



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 18:01, May 29, 2018 (UTC)
Her heart was breaking for her friend. She'd move over to her and wrap her arms silently around her. "What can I do to help?"


Faith Willard

 – 18:04, May 29, 2018 (UTC)

She appreciated the hug, but shrugged when they separated. "I don't know, honestly. Elle's saying she'll take Emily and watch her while I'm at work... citing that daycare's too expensive... but it's not like I don't have money. I'm more than financially secure. I just... I don't know how to be a single Mum when I am home to watch her. I never wanted to be a mother in the first place, but I knew I could do it when I had Dakota. And now he's... gone, without a word and..." She looked over to where Emily was stacking blocks on a mat on the floor. "I don't know what to do."



Jaina Nordskov4

Send Me an Owl! - 18:10, May 29, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod understanding Faith's struggle. "I wish there was an easy way to make someone a great mom but the only way I have found is by putting in the time and making mistakes to learn how to do things right."


Faith Willard

"She looks just like him," she said with a sigh, looking over at Emily. "Except she's got my eyes."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 12:12, May 30, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "So what can I do to help? I can get people to find him for you. I can offer you a job if you want to get away from here with Emily and a place to live." She'd give a little smile. "I can just sit here with you and share your pain. Anything you need Faith...I'm here."


Faith Willard

 – 17:17, May 30, 2018 (UTC)~

She sighed. "The British Aurors have already been alerted to his disappearance, so I'm sure they're already looking. But what I really need, I think, is to be distracted. Tell me about how things are going with you. How's your daughter?"



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:35, May 30, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Well enough. She'd seven now and I also have a little boy, Alexander, who's two."


Faith Willard

-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:37, May 30, 2018 (UTC)

She smiled. "Congratulations. How does she like being a big sister?"

OOC: I know Faith would know her daughter's name... but I can't remember it. xD



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:41, May 30, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...Karina loves it. They're here with me but I left them with the nanny when you weren't at your house. You're more than welcome to meet them if you'd like before we leave."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:41, May 30, 2018 (UTC)

"Well Karina I've met," she said. "You brought her over when Emily was first born. How's Christian?"



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:45, May 30, 2018 (UTC)
"Busy but good. There's some things going on so he remained at home to take care of them while we came to the wedding here."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:46, May 30, 2018 (UTC)

She nodded. "Did you come because you actually knew the happy couple, or just because you're also royalty and it's just what's expected?"



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:49, May 30, 2018 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "Bit of both. I was at Hogwarts the same time as the bride...so we knew of each other but didn't know each other. It's also what's expected and a good chance to further diplomatic relations...and let the kids see this type of event too. Experience it you know?"


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:51, May 30, 2018 (UTC)~

She nodded. "Sure." She paused, then just went ahead and asked her question. "So does Karina, or Alexander for that matter... have they shown any signs of having, ah, special magic like yours?"



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:54, May 30, 2018 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "Not that I know of. I first started noticing mine about Karina's age though so we'll see." She'd pause. "So...I know I asked but I want to make sure I was clear...if you wanted to move to Norway with Emily I really would have a job for you. This isn't just a charity offer but something I know you could do well if you were at all interested."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:29, May 31, 2018 (UTC)~

She frowned. "What's the job?"



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:34, May 31, 2018 (UTC)
"Karina needs someone to start teaching her to guard her mind and I know of nobody more skilled in the area than you."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:35, May 31, 2018 (UTC)~

She let out a slow breath. The offer was... tempting. "I'm flattered," she said with a small smile that faded. "But my whole family is here..."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:39, May 31, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I know they are which is why it would be a big decision. I've been tempted to ask you before but your whole life was here. Now though...it seems like if you wanted a change for yourself and Emily I could at least offer. Of course you could both come visit your family here and there would be more to it than just that but you would both have a good place to live and you'd have help raising Emily too."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:45, May 31, 2018 (UTC)

Her first inclination was to say let me talk it over with... but then she realized that the end of that sentence didn't really... have anyone on the end anymore. Who would she talk it over with? Elle? Ash and Charity? Melinda? Her current clients? That last one made at least a bit of sense. "Can I have some time to think it over? I do have a job here, with people I work with closely. I'd have to consider... their progress, and if me leaving is going to be alright for them, too."

OOC: I know we haven't done much with Rose/Faith in an RP sense... I guess I've just been assuming they've been working together, un-RPed, this whole time. What are your thoughts?



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:50, May 31, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Of course. I didn't expect you'd have an answer tonight but I did want you to know I really meant it and how much I hope you accept." She'd offer a small smile. "I would love to get to know you closely again." He'd pause. "So...enough of business. How is Emily doing?" She'd glance at the girl still in the corner.

OOC: Yeah I assumed they were still meeting once a month or every other month but at this point Faith probably couldn't actually do much more to help...they'd just be working on trying to let her magic through more generally. Rose could probably continue on her own considering how long they've been at it and that she's almost of age herself. I don't know if you like the idea of Faith going OOC or not but I thought I would offer since I thought it was something she might consider.


Faith Willard

 – 17:55, May 31, 2018 (UTC)

She looked over at her. "Developmentally progressing like she should be," she said with a shrug. "She started walking a bit early... and her babble sounds more and more like real words each day. She seems to like to be around people quite a lot-- she's always near kids in daycare, or in the arms of one of the people who work there."

OOC: It's tough. :P Because I actually feel like Faith might take Jaina up on it. But I don't really want to lose her as a character, either. But if she goes to Norway, I'd RP her even less than I do now.



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:58, May 31, 2018 (UTC)
She'd frown slightly. "You give positive things but don't seem happy or joyful about them."

OOC:I guess I figured you didn't really get to RP her much anyway and she could always come for visits. Of course it's your call in the end...just giving options. :)


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable

 – 01:09, June 1, 2018 (UTC)~

She frowned, opening her mouth to disagree and then closing it slightly when she realized Jaina was right, and so she took the next moment trying to figure out why. "I... I suppose I think about it... too scientifically, perhaps."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 12:10, June 1, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "So what's the thing you've been most proud of Emily for or most pleasantly surprised by?"


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 12:46, June 1, 2018 (UTC)~

"Walking early was nice," she said with a chuckle. "While it's not like I don't still carry her at times... it's nice that she's able to walk on her own now, for the sake of my back."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 13:21, June 1, 2018 (UTC)
She'd smile and nod. "Yeah I can imagine."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:39, June 1, 2018 (UTC)~

She nodded. "So are you raising your children... multi-lingually? Norweigan, Swedish, English...?"



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:42, June 1, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yes all three and given our diplomatic ties they might learn French or German too when they are older."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:45, June 1, 2018 (UTC)~

She nodded. "Prudent." She looked over to Emily. "I hope she enjoys reading as much as I do. But I don't know any other languages fluently to teach her."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:47, June 1, 2018 (UTC)
She'd mention Emily would probably learn enough to be fluent in a few languages if Faith came but would decide not to press the point. "That is one thing I think Hogwarts should probably teach but does not. Knowing other languages can be important."


Faith Willard

 – 17:50, June 1, 2018 (UTC)~

"And it helps brain development," she said nodding. "And it's easier to learn when you're younger..." she chuckled. "There's lots of reasons why it's a good idea."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:52, June 1, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod in agreement. "Sounds like you have read a lot about kids."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:55, June 1, 2018 (UTC)~

"I know a lot about the brain," she said. "And I've worked, predominantly, with adolescents, so I had to know about brain development in young children, and in teenagers." She looked over at Emily again. "It's been so tempting sometimes to go into her head to find out what it is that she needs when she's crying or relentlessly upset. But I know it's not a good idea."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:57, June 1, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Their minds are so malleable at that age it really is easy to do something with unintended consequences. Older more stable minds can resist that better."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:58, June 1, 2018 (UTC)

She nodded. "Exactly."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 18:00, June 1, 2018 (UTC)
"Still I found with my kids that as they aged I could tell what they wanted from their cries or what I knew they would be needing soon."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 00:18, June 2, 2018 (UTC)~

She sighed. "Every mothering book I read said that would happen-- that I'd learn her cries. I... never did. Still can't. Dakota could."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 12:21, June 4, 2018 (UTC)
"...maybe because Dakota did you didn't have to."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 17:49, June 4, 2018 (UTC)~

She frowned. "Are you saying I opted to be a bad mother, because Dakota was a good father?"



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 17:58, June 4, 2018 (UTC)
She'd shake her head quickly. "Not at all just that with kids we tend to separate duties. Christian and I both get busy and the kids are often with a nanny who knows things about them that we honestly do not since she has been close to them and seen them develop. Christian knows more about some things going on with the kids than I do because he was there for those specific things. I know more about others. He is better with the kids about some things and I am better with others. I would not say that makes either of us bad parents. My point was that now you'll have an opportunity to learn those things about your daughter than you didn't before."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 18:01, June 4, 2018 (UTC)~

She unclenched slightly and nodded, thinking that over.



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 18:03, June 4, 2018 (UTC)
She'd try to speak in a soothing manner. "...and with her Dad gone Emily will need you to be closer to her." She'd shrug. "You know as well as I how different a girl's relationship to her mother is to her relationship with her father."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 18:04, June 4, 2018 (UTC)~

She frowned. "I didn't really have a relationship with either of my parents. They died when I was thirteen. Well, my Mum did. I guess my Dad didn't." She shook her head. "Not important."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 18:07, June 4, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yes but not having those relationships hurt you I'm sure the way losing my parents and sister did me. We've both done well but it still leaves a mark on you." Her eyes would travel over the now nearly invisible snowflake on Faith's brow.


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 18:10, June 4, 2018 (UTC)~

She knew exactly where Jaina was looking, but mostly ignored it. "I guess I'm saying that... I don't have a frame of reference for what a girl's relationship to her mother or her father are supposed to look like." She frowned. "And how could anyone, really? No two parents or children are alike. I'm sure Charity's relationship to each of her children is different. And my relationship with Emily won't look exactly like hers do."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 18:13, June 4, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod. "That's true but what I'm saying is that relationship is important. Emily's relationship to you will be more important in the vacuum of having a relationship with her father."


Faith Willard

Faith Willard Slytherin Alumna - Unspeakable
-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 18:14, June 4, 2018 (UTC)

"I'm aware it's important," she said, frowning.



Jaina Nordskov4

She'd nod. "I know you do."


Faith Willard

-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 18:19, June 4, 2018 (UTC)

She sighed. "Well... we'll be better off here, where she'll be around more... competent family members who can help care for her."



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark
Send Me an Owl! - 18:22, June 4, 2018 (UTC)
She'd nod not pushing. "I do not doubt your competence as a mother Faith. Things are rough right now and in life's storms we all need a place to take refuge and pull our lives back together."


Faith Willard

-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 18:24, June 4, 2018 (UTC)~

She nodded and glanced over to Emily when she started to fuss. She walked over and did a check of the usual things-- she wasn't wet. It wasn't nap time. She glanced at the clock. Maybe hungry.



Jaina Nordskov4
Jaina Nordskov - Queen of Norway and Denmark

She'd stand. "Well I probably have overstayed my welcome. I would love for you to meet my little boy before we head back but if that doesn't happen I understand since you have a lot going on. Of course my offer remains open and you are both always welcome to visit us."
