Some of the more positive emotions would try to crowd in on Melinda, almost as if trying to comfort her, but the negative ones would remain the closest.

Tears would begin to stream down Melinda's face and she'd turn to Faith. "I...think we should go. I can't...think...can't...process in here." She'd glance back at Princess. "...and don't you leave without saying goodbye. We still have the rest of the summer before I turn seventeen." She'd begin walking from the zoo and back into the forest.

The snake would continue to coil around her shoulders and the Jaguar stalk behind her through the woods and out into the antechamber.

She followed behind Melinda silently. Once they reached the antechamber she looked at her sister. "You should try to get rid of those," she said, referring to the jaguar and the snake, "before we go."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:01, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
She'd glance at them, looking almost surprised they were even there. Her voice would break a little as she spoke. "...how?"


Faith Willard

-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 18:03, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

"Try to focus on something else," she suggested gently. She looked around the antechamber. "Find something to... modify or work on. Refocus your mind."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:05, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
With a sigh she'd look around and then focus on Faith. "...can I modify you...?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 18:07, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

A look of mild surprise crossed her face. "I suppose you could."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:09, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod, sitting down on the grass, and motioning for Faith to do the same. She'd focus, imagining some simple beauty supplies appearing...basic make up, nail polish and picking up a bright happy yellow polish motion for Faith to give her her hand, and get to work.


Faith Willard

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

 – 18:11, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

She sat down next to Melinda, keeping her own emotions clear. She let Melinda do what she needed to, to clear her mind.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:16, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
After a few minutes Melinda would seem to start enjoying herself and after ten Faith's nails and face would be done. The make-up would have a much more than normal effect not only covering wrinkles and hiding lines, but actually de-aging Faith a bit. "I don't know why my mind's aged you like this...but it's something we can do something about."


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 18:16, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
Faith would look and feel much younger and more like she had the first couple times she'd been here. As Melinda worked the jaguar would quickly slip back into the woods. The snake would take longer, but by the time she was done it would have uncoiled and would be moving away.


Faith Willard

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

 – 18:17, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

She shrugged. "Something about our relationship changed for you." She paused. "I guess we'll see if... this sticks, or if it's a permanent change that you'd have to undo every time."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:19, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
She'd take another deep breath, then let it out and nod, rising to her feet and offering Faith a hand. When Faith took it, they'd reappear in Melinda's room.


Faith Willard

She opened her eyes and glanced at the clock-- it was getting pretty late. She moved her joints around before looking at Melinda, clearly concerned.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:24, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
She'd stretch, then give Faith a half-hearted smile. "Well...thanks for helping me...figure out what's going on."


Faith Willard

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

 – 18:25, September 28, 2016 (UTC)~

She nodded. "How are you feeling?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:28, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
She'd consider that, then look at Faith uncertainly. "...are you sure you want to know? Remember how...irritated you were about me telling you things then Ash and Charity trying to...get them out of you? If you don't want to get involved...I can deal with it. I'm not going to...kill myself or anything."


Faith Willard

 – 18:30, September 28, 2016 (UTC)~

"As the person who just went into your head, I have somewhat of a... sisterly responsibility, I suppose, to make sure you're okay right after." She paused. "Ash did it with me all the time. There were a couple of times I'd passed out after having something traumatic happen in my head."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:32, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
She'd look down at the comforter on her bed with the trees and flowers. "I...don't really know what I'm feeling. Generally I'm pretty good...with that...and controlling my emotions but..." Some tears would form in her eyes. "It's just...it's just a lot at once you know?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 18:33, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded, letting Melinda process what she needed to.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:38, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
A tear or two would slide down her cheeks. She'd close her eyes, but the tears would come anyway, silently sliding down her face and onto the bedspread until she was literally sobbing quietly.


Faith Willard

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

 – 18:40, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

She moved toward her sister a bit awkwardly and put her arm around Melinda.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:41, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
She'd give Faith a small, thankful smile. "I mean...it just...it hurts you know? Losing someone so...close, that you care about so much? Like..." She'd stop, not wanting to remind Faith about Oscar.


Faith Willard

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

 – 18:43, September 28, 2016 (UTC)~

"Like what?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:46, September 28, 2016 (UTC)
She'd purse her lips, her words quiet, the tears slowing a little. "Like...I remember how much you hurt when Oscar left."


Faith Willard

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

 – 22:56, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

She let out a slow breath. Oscar... didn't hurt her anymore... now. "Yeah, that was rough. But... I've moved on since then."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 12:09, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah and...and..." She couldn't finish and burst back into tears again.


Faith Willard

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

 – 13:53, September 29, 2016 (UTC)

She gently rubbed Melinda's back.... not sure what else to do.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 13:59, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
After a minute she'd manage to re-gain control of herself, taking some deep breaths, and the tears would slow.


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:01, September 29, 2016 (UTC)

She flicked her wand, nonverbally Summoning an electric blue potion. "Take it. It'll help your mind... heal. Not that I think anything's broken, but any time you go in, and you have.... an emotional.... well, breakdown, stuff tends to get kind of jumbled. This will help that."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:03, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod and set it on the bedside table. "Thanks for...letting me cry Faith. I know...it's awkward for you."


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:04, September 29, 2016 (UTC)

She shrugged. "I did enough crying with Ash when I was first learning Occlumency."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:06, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
That...sort of surprised her. She'd...seen Faith cry but...it was a rare thing. "Well...sometimes it just...helps you feel better." She'd shrug, but still seemed a bit in shock.


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:09, September 29, 2016 (UTC)

She studied her sister's expression. "I have emotions, Melinda," she said suppressing an eye roll. "They're just... more caged up than yours."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:11, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "Sometimes I wish they weren't...sometimes feeling just...hurts more." She'd wince and clutch her hands to her chest.


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:12, September 29, 2016 (UTC)

She frowned. "Melinda? Are you okay?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:14, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
She'd slowly shake her head, but lower her arms. "No...but being ok again might take a while. I just feel..." She'd let out a sigh. "...broken I guess."


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:15, September 29, 2016 (UTC)~

"And physically?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:18, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
She'd consider that then shrug. "I mean...I don't think it's a physical thing. I...sort of feel like I have a hole in my chest....it hurts but...I'm pretty sure it's just...emotions."


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:18, September 29, 2016 (UTC)~

"Drink the potion, Melinda. It'll help."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:21, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
She'd glance over at it. "I will...just not right this second." She'd pause, then take another deep breath and let it out. "Well...I'm ok for now Faith. A lot to...think about but..." She'd shrug.


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:22, September 29, 2016 (UTC)

"But what?" she asked. "Melinda, I'm not leaving until you drink it. So if there's something more you need to process through, then talk to me."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:23, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
She'd roll her eyes and grab the potion, drinking it. She wondered if Faith realized just how much she was being like Charity right now...and she doubted she'd be a good mom. "It's just going to take time Faith. Sometimes...that's all you can do."


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:26, September 29, 2016 (UTC)~

She nodded. "Thank you for taking the potion. I just... I know you have a stubborn, 'I know what's best for me' streak. But in this case? I know what's best. Because I'm the one who knows more about mind magic, and what your mind might need. I get the need to process internally... but you did need to take that potion. So thank you."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:28, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
She'd give Faith a wry slightly amused look. "I'm not arguing or saying you don't know better...but do you know how often both you and I have been irritated by Charity having that attitude...about knowing what's best for us?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:31, September 29, 2016 (UTC)

"Charity's comes from a place of... thinking she knows better. And it's out of... worry, or something else. Hers is often... more opinion based-- like when you two argued about your clothing choices." She paused. "I won't ever inflict my opinions on your from a.... moral high ground. But in the face of facts? I'll insist."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:32, September 29, 2016 (UTC)
She'd let out an amused snort. "...and that's why I like you better." She'd glance around her room which had darkened considerably, then give Faith a hug. The physical contact felt good...real.


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:34, September 29, 2016 (UTC)

She internally cringed at that idea. She knew it would break Charity's heart to hear that. She gave Melinda a hug in return before standing up. "Sleep helps heal the mind, too. Trust me, I heard that one... well, I've heard it a lot... doing what I do."
