She'd be sitting on her bed with her sketchbook open but nothing on the paper. Nothing was coming. She'd sigh and again eye the wand laying on the bed. It was annoying that as far as she knew it was still having issues, but because she was still two months underage, she could even do anything about it, or test it or anything.

She was home for a visit, since she knew Melinda was home. She knocked on the door, since she couldn't find her sister anywhere else.

"Come in!" She'd smile when she saw Faith, standing to give her a hug. "Hey...what brings you by?"


Faith Willard

 – 14:52, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She returned the hug briefly. "I knew you were home, so... I thought I'd come visit."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:53, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
That made her smile bigger. She'd settle back on the bed. "Well then. How's work and everything going?"


Faith Willard

-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 14:55, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She shrugged as she sat on the edge of the bed. "Fine. Taking a beak for the summer, which means I'll probably just be doing a lot of paperwork," she said with a grimace.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:57, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "So...are you here to help me with my mental issues." She'd let out a little laugh at her own joke.


Faith Willard

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

 – 14:58, September 27, 2016 (UTC)~

"Uhm.... I mean... if you want me to, I can try?" she asked, not really recognizing the joke.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:59, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd chuckle. "That was a joke Faith. We'd...talked about doing some...mind defensive stuff and...talking to Princess...remember?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:01, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded. "Right... did you still want to do that?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:04, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah but...I mean we don't have to do this every time you're here. We could just...relax or...go horseback riding or...go swim in the lake or...whatever."


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:05, September 27, 2016 (UTC)~

She chuckled. "I know." She paused. "Though I think I'd be pretty lousy at horseback riding."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:09, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd giggle a little at the thought. "Yeah...I know you never really liked brooms."


Faith Willard

 – 15:10, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She made a face at memory of storming out of that class in her first year.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:12, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "I just don't want you to feel like you have to work every time you're over here to see me you know?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:13, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

"It's not work for me, Melinda," she explained. "It... it's a way I can help you, using something I know how to do."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:17, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd frown slightly at that. "Ok well...then I guess I just don't want you feeling like I only want you over here to help me then. I mean...I really appreciate it but...we can do other things together too."


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:18, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

"We... do do other things together. We... we go out and grab drinks at The Three Broomsticks or the cafes in Hogsmeade..."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:19, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah..."


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:19, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

"Am I not... doing something right?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:24, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd shake her head, biting her lip and looking a little ashamed. "No...I just...don't want you to feel like I'm using you or...trying to be selfish and make what we do together always about me."


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:26, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She shrugged. "I don't feel that way."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:31, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "...ok. I guess just...everything with Mal...made me need to check."


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:33, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded-- that made sense. "If I thought you were using me, Melinda... I can guarantee I wouldn't be offering."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:38, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I guess...I just wanted to make sure." She'd shrug. "So...I guess I'm ready when you are?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:39, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded and scooted further onto the bed and pulled out her wand. She pointed it first to Melinda's temple, and then to her own as she spoke the incantation. "Legilimens."

They'd find themselves on the beach in Melinda's antechamber. The sky above would be stormy and it would be spitting rain occasionally. The castle would look like it had been under something of a siege with some bits and parts broken and laying on the ground, but overall it was still standing and solid.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:44, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd look around frowning slightly.


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:46, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She took in the surroundings, looking to see if there were any differences in herself or Melinda.



Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 15:49, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
Faith looked how she had last time...like an older mentor who had experience but was a bit weathered. Melinda looked more careworn, a bit beaten down and tired, with splotches of mud and gunk on her clothes that before had always been new and pristine. She looked like she was going through a storm, and the weather in the chamber reflected that with an ominous and foreboding feeling as the clouds swirled in the sky.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:49, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd examine the surroundings too, though not notice her own appearance. "Well...this looks...troubling."


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:50, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded. "What would you like to work on, first?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:51, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd frown. "I guess...learning whatever mental techniques you can show me to help...my control?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 15:54, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded. "That depends on what it is you want to control."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:56, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd frown. "Ummm...my mind? More control so...when I'm an animal I can...have more control?" She didn't really know how to express what it is she wanted...and didn't know what she needed.


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:00, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

"When you're in your animal form, can you pinpoint what it is that makes you feel... out of control?" She paused. "The defense will be more efficient and effective if we can pinpoint something more specific."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:01, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah...it's the animal's instincts taking over or fighting with my rational mind. So...I suppose it's...my instincts then, fighting with my rational mind and I need to be able to...switch between them or...control which one is in charge with more precision."


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:05, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded. "So... that would probably be the logic center of your mind... which we haven't found yet." She paused. "Any ideas where it might be?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:08, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
she'd look around. It...wasn't out past the forest where the zoo and mirror maze were. She'd look back behind her out over the beach and water. It...wasn't down under the water either where the submarine was. She'd look around for where else it could be, then frown slightly looking at the castle. "I...I think it's inside the castle somewhere..."


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:09, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She smiled. "Then lead the way."



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:15, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod and head inside.


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 16:15, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
As they explored the castle, they'd both realize it was much larger inside than it looked from the outside. Previously there had been a kiddish cartoony bouncy castle inside, but that was now gone. The castle itself looked neat and in order from the inside with none of the signs of the storm outside. It was clearly a haven, protected from the rest of the antechamber. As they moved through, they'd notice it was fully furnished and appeared to be ready for living with all the amenities one would need for it to be a full time residence. They traveled down many long corridors, and Melinda would open a door occasionally to peak in. They'd find bedrooms, bathrooms, dining halls, kitchens...everything. As they traveled they'd get the sense of Hogwarts here. The layout and structure was obviously different but something about the way it felt... After searching a bit Melinda would stop in front of a door. It was up in one of the towers of the castle, with stained glass windows along the stairs which looked out onto the rest of the antechamber. Faith would note this was the only stained glass they'd seen so far.


Melinda Adult

"I...I'm pretty sure it's here."


Faith Willard

-To be great is to be misunderstood.

 – 16:18, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She nodded. "Alright. Do you want to go inside?"



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:23, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd nod, and step forward opening the door.


Game Master
Send Me an Owl! - 16:23, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
The door would open into a room much larger than would fit into the tower they'd come up through, and Faith would note they had left the antechamber and were now in the Logic Center. It was an artist's studio with half finished art everywhere. Smears of color from different mediums everywhere, and the whole room chaotic. There were paintings, sculptures, chalk drawings, charcoal, stained glass, architecture, animation, body art, calligraphy, poems, jewelry, mosaics, photography, statues, and musical pieces playing. All of it was in various stages of completion, with materials for all of them scattered all over the place making it almost hard to walk with everything crammed in and messy. There were shadows of people preforming...singers, dancers, actors, even people flying on brooms and doing figure skating around the room. While everything seemed extremely chaotic and almost overwhelming, after a few moments of observing one could begin to discern small patterns with things fitting together. It gave the impression that everything in the chamber fit together in some grand way, but you could only glimpse pieces of those connections with the overall grand picture being too out of reach, or too complex, to grasp.


Faith Willard

 – 16:25, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

Given that logic was one of her strengths, Faith was able to glimpse the pieces and looked over to Melinda to see how she was faring.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:27, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd look around wide-eyed, trying to follow things and quickly getting lost. "This is...complete chaos." She'd glance at Faith. "This is my logic chamber?"


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:29, September 27, 2016 (UTC)~

"What's your relationship with logic?" she asked.



Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:30, September 27, 2016 (UTC)
She'd let out a concerned chuckle and look around. "...apparently I have none. No wonder everything thinks I'm nuts."


Faith Willard

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

 – 16:32, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

She bit her lip. She wanted to help, but didn't want to take over Melinda's mind. "Can you see anything that makes sense to you?"
