She nodded. "Sounds good. And I hope you feel better," she added as she took Elle back downstairs.

Christmas[]

Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 17:28, November 18, 2015 (UTC)
There would be a letter on Faith's bed when she got back

Faith,

First off...calm down... and... whatever else it is I'd say that would be just the right thing. Sorry...I couldn't resist.

Sorry it took so long to respond, but I've been insanely busy. I know it's not a good excuse, but at least this way I get to send your Christmas present with it. I hope you enjoy it.

I've missed you too. I wish we could see one another more often, but I know it's not really a possibility. I think the reason we were able to connect so well and I was able to help you is that we have a lot in common. We're very similar in many ways. Maybe if you're trying to get to know your sister better instead of worrying about it, or putting yourself down, just answer the question how you'd want it answered if you were asking. Look for familiar ground with her to connect on. As sisters you must have some similarities.

I'm sorry to hear you didn't get Head Girl. I remember being a prefect...it wasn't my favorite job either. I'm sure you'll be fine on your resume...people get hired by your Ministry all the time without real qualifications. You'll already have a good step up.

Sorry to hear that your Occlumency training went sideways. Being in the mind can be quite dangerous...but you have to be bold, and unafraid or you hand it tools to fight back with. If Ash is an awful Legilimens, then I would guess he did the worst he could to give you a sense. I'm sure with a bit of preparation and training you'd be perfectly able to repel his attacks. Just remember, that regardless of what happens, I have Faith in you. Nothing can change that.

P.S. Happy Christmas. I hope you enjoy the gift. It's a charm for you to think of me when you wear it. It also helps focus the mind, and should help with your Occlumency.


Jaina Nordskov Nordskov Family Crest (Owl Me)

Wrapped in bright blue paper with snowflakes would be a package. Inside would be a silver chain with a medium sized ice blue snowflake pendant on it. The snowflake would be cold to the touch, but after wearing it for a few moments, the cold where it touched her skin would fade. If she removed it she'd find the charm cold once again.

She came upstairs and fell onto her bed, and cried into her pillow. It was by design that her old copy had 'been damaged.' She didn't need any more reminders of Oscar around. She wanted desperately to go into her mindscape... but she knew Ash probably wouldn't let her. When she got back to Hogwarts, the first thing she was going to do would be to destroy Oscar in her mindscape. She saw the package from Jaina and read through the letter. Tears for missing yet another person in her life sprung anew.

She'd knock on the door.


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:11, August 26, 2016 (UTC)~

She was curled up with Moby Dick and flicked her wand to open the door. "Hey Melinda," she said, putting a bookmark in the novel.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:14, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd smile. "Hey. I know you're headed back to your place today...but do you have time for me to ask a couple questions...?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:15, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded, gesturing to the bed, if Melinda wanted to sit down. "What's up?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:16, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd sit, taking a deep breath. "So...you know my friend Mal right?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:18, August 26, 2016 (UTC)~

She nodded slowly. "Sort of, why?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:24, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd sigh. "She...has a deep fear of men....well guys in general because her father...emotionally abused her. I...was wondering if...there was a way to fix fears like that in her head. She's going to start seeing some sort of therapist about it but..." She'd shrug.


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:27, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded slowly. "It's... possible," she said. "But I wouldn't be able to guarantee anything. It would be... a long process, because any changes you make to your mind... your mind has a tendency to revert back to how it was before, especially with a big change of something that's been so deeply rooted for a long time."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:30, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "...but fears can be overcome...? So...how would she go about...learning that or...is that...something someone would have to help her with?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:33, August 26, 2016 (UTC)~

"Of course fears can be overcome," she said nodding. "And... every person does it differently. Occlumency is one way," she said. "And... she would definitely need someone's help, as... battling those kinds of things in your mind can... cause the mind to shut down and.... yeah." She could see the image of her library shutting down the first time she'd ever tried to take on Euclide.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:34, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod hesitantly. "So...could you help her...?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:38, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She looked at her sister for a moment. "Does Mal know you're having this conversation with me?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:41, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "We...were talking about Princess and I told her how we could communicate in my mind and...I told her I would ask if...something like that could help with her fears." She'd continue quickly. "I...didn't promise her anything or...even tell her much about it just...that I'd ask." she didn't want Faith to feel like she'd betrayed her secrets to someone else.


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:43, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She ran her fingers through her hair a few times. "Yes, it's possible. I could try."

OOC: Except yay self-RPs? xD



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:45, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd smile a little. "Really?"

OOC:You don't have to do the RPs. When we RP Melinda and Mal you can just mention she's been seeing Faith and they did X or it's helped with Y. We can just RP out the results so you don't have to do self-RPs from one or both their perspectives.


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:48, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She shrugged. "It.... factors directly into my research that I'm doing with the hospital, so she'd be the perfect candidate if she wants to."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:49, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
"Oh...I didn't know that. Well...then I'll let her know when I get back to Hogwarts."


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:51, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

"You didn't know because I never told you," she said with a little smile. "If she wants to meet up with me, let me know."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:54, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I'll have her contact you. Ummm...there was one other thing. I was hoping...sometime over the summer you'd...help me go back into my mind and talk to Princess again?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:55, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded. "Sure. We could do it right now, if you wanted."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:56, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. "Princess is back at Hogwarts so I don't think she'd be...close enough you know?" She'd frown slightly. "I mean...in magic...distance is relevant right?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:58, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded slowly. "Yes... but I also think that your connection seems to be really strong."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:59, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd consider that. "I...guess we can try. I'm just...worried about her. Her color is changing and while I think I know what's going on...It would be nice to be able to talk it through you know?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:01, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded. "If you want to try now, we can."

OOC: Starting a "Mind stuff" page for Mal in my sandbox. Feel free to peruse if you like. :)



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:06, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod, settling in.

OOC:I don't want Melinda to know yet...so Princess will be too far to appear and talk to them.


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:08, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She brought her wand first to her own temple, and then to Melinda's. "Legilimens..."



Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 16:10, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
They'd appear in the antechamber, on the beach down below the castle. The outside part they could see looked much sturdier that before, and it looked like it had aged some, the bricks a bit weathered, some moss growing on the side.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:10, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd look around and get her bearings, then nod to the forest around the side of the castle. "So...through the woods right?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:12, August 26, 2016 (UTC)~

"You tell me... that's where it's been in the past."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:16, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "I...don't know why it would have moved." She'd start heading that way.


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 16:16, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
As they went past the castle entrance they'd notice a fully brick keep inside, strong and pristine. Faith would also notice as she walked, her own appearance had changed some since she's last been in here. Now, instead of looking beautiful and perfect, there were some wrinkle lines like she'd aged ten or twenty years. She still was pretty, but some of the youth was gone. She was wearing a white Professor's robe. She felt a bit physically weaker but...felt much smarter. Wiser. Apparently Melinda now thought of her less as a physical beauty to live up to and more of a wise teacher of sorts.


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:20, August 26, 2016 (UTC)~

She followed behind Melinda, a bit slower than she was used to walking. Or maybe Melinda was running faster. She looked down at her attire, and noticed it was very different. Something about the way Melinda viewed her had changed. She made a mental note of it as she followed Melinda into the forest.



Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 16:26, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
Melinda would stop to wait for Faith before entering the forest. As they moved through it Melinda would seem to get ahead of Faith fairly often and slow down or stop to wait for her. Once they were through the Zoo would be up ahead, with the spectral animals floating about. A small Acromantula would crawl up and perch on her shoulder, and a little rabbit would hop along at her side. At the entrance to the zoo Melinda would stop again to wait for Faith.


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:28, August 26, 2016 (UTC)~

"I'm coming," she said, trying to pick up her pace.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:30, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod, looking around. Once Faith was close, she'd call out tentatively. "...Princess...?"


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 16:30, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
A golden unicorn would come up....but it was translucent and clearly one of her emotions...not the solid unicorn she'd talked to last time.


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:31, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She watched Melinda from the side.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:32, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd shake her head at the unicorn, then try again. "...Princess?" After a few more moments she'd turn to Faith frowning. "I...don't think she can get here right now..."


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:34, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded. "Then perhaps you were right-- the connection requires more of a physical closeness."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:39, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod a little. "Yeah..."


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 16:39, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
As they stood there Faith would get her first good look at Melinda since coming in since she'd been hurrying ahead the whole time. Her body was more matured, her curves less teenage and gawky and more adultish. Her attitude seemed more mature, with a few worry lines on her face. In her posture she seemed a bit more confident, less timid.


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:41, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She noticed the changes in Melinda, and considered them for a moment before asking, "Is there anything else you wanted to do while we're here?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:47, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd consider that, then shrug. "I...don't think so. Sorry for making you...take the trip for nothing. Unless there's something else you think we should do."


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:48, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She shook her head. "The minute I start thinking like that, it means I'd be taking over your mind... and that's not what these trips were ever intended to do."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:50, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd frown. "So...that's the difference between...Occlumency and Legilimency? Observing and...acting?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:54, August 26, 2016 (UTC)~

She nodded slowly. "In a way. Legilimency, at the beginning, is just observing and interpreting. But if I were to make any kind of suggestion to you, your brain would interpret it as an attack-- because I'd be changing something. Occlumency is the act of... actively protecting yourself. It's always been the defensive move to Legilimency's offense."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:58, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Well...then I guess it's back through the forest..." A dove would come over and hover near Melinda.


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:59, August 26, 2016 (UTC)~

She noticed the dove, and briefly wondered what the different animals represented, before following Melinda out.



Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 17:03, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
they'd head back into the woods along the path. they'd gotten just over halfway through when a translucent cat would amble down coming from the antechamber, and turn off the path down a barely noticeable game trail, pushing through the heavy underbrush and disappearing.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:03, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd watch it curiously, then look at Faith and realize she'd have to wait. Once Faith caught up she'd ask, "Do we have time to follow and see...where it was going?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 17:04, August 26, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded. "If you want to, we can."

OOC: Heading to work. I'll bbl :)



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:10, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod, heading down the path after the cat.

OOC:Your post and your OOC seem to say different things. :P


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 17:10, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
As they continued through the woods, the temperature would begin to drop and frost would begin to form on the trees. The forest would slowly change from being a forest in full summer bloom to one in the middle of winter. Many of the trees would have no leaves, and the ground would be covered in an inch or two of snow. The forest itself would also seem to be darker, less lit. The bare branches would almost look like they were reaching out for Faith and Melinda and they whole area had a rather foreboding feel to it. There was no movement and the whole place looked forlorn and empty...dead.
