  2. A sigh of dejection escaped from him and his hand weaved through the locks of black hair, there had always been things one couldn't escape in life. Aspects about themselves that were either inherently good things or inherently bad and this particular case. . . It always seemed to be the same problem with him to the point that he had started to bite on his lower lip. How many times could he curse to himself mentally before anything would change? Before the outcome could be predictable and less not? There was this sense of hopelessness of knowing that the effort placed before him would only truly have one end to it all. The best thing he could hope to do is hope that if it took the worse possible turn that someone would be fit enough to handle the catastrophe that would follow. "Merlin's point hat. . ." Alexander whispered to himself deciding that it needed to be done one way or another, this wasn't something that he could run from as much as it was something that he couldn't embrace. It simply just was and how he dealt with it could either be to rise up to the challenge and deal with the fallout or shirk from ever trying to prove, at least to himself, that he was willing to grow and adjust. His hand snaked along the wooden wand which held no real remarkable features, in fact, it looked entirely generic as possible - Something standard for a few wizards. That was the risk of being so unreadable when it came to his magic even to the attention of wands! As he raised his arm upwards his motion traced through the air - it was good one could even presume he would have succeeded with how it flowed through the air in tracing out the symbol "Aguamenti!" Even the words held a power of command behind them. It was then, however, that tragedy would obviously strike for this unlucky magical being as the fire of the scarecrow he had pointed the wand towards only engulfed in an even brighter fire than he could have anticipated as it started to grow as if started at a high level of fire magic. "Sonuva!" This was getting out of hand, this is what would cost him his studies academically in the long run. This was a fact he knew and in its own way, even if he tried to hide it, it stressed him how more than he would have ever admitted. He had to think fast and that was often where he adapted best at as his eyes locked on to one of the tubes of the construct that held the flowing water. It was sharpened in a way that it could be like a bucket, or a cannister made with a widened spout. Unhinging it from the display with it being filled well enough with a good depth of water he'd carry it towards the scarecrow he had only made worse. Then proceeded to toss the water onto it as the two elements collided and the fire was doused. His head rolled along with his eyes in a slight sweat before he'd hook the piece back onto the display. Lucky enough he had timed it for when the water had always passed through giving him time and leaving little mess on the floor.
  3. Tyson probably would have been taking notes if he didn't think that it'd be pointless to try and capture every word spoken. Elemental Magic had been a practical activity versus an actual legitimate course and left room of improvement and knowledge up to testing - Failure and success would be the true impact of knowledge and whether he would allow himself to get dejected or even surprised by the fact that now there were effigy's before them lit ablaze. At least he could keep the description in mind of a general sense by the summary gifted through the instructor, that would have to do for the time being until he made enough free time to jot down the information that he could remember later. The tips of his fingers walk along the length of his Red Oak wand before he'd take it fully within the center of his palm sliding it out of its place that hung on the loop of his belt. His arm lifted upwards as he pointed the tip of the wand forward towards one of the burning scarecrows honing his gaze forward and keeping the target in mind. He didn't want his thoughts to drift off or his will to waver in the midst of the roaring course of fire that crackled within this ears. A sharp inhale from his nostrils form while his hand fluidly traced through the air, aware and familiar with the spell yet it was the potential pressure and atmosphere that always seemed to add a bogged down presence when casting. Either way, he steeled himself and found that his motions were well enough while speaking out the words of the spell. "Aguamenti!" It was a jet of water that expelled out of his wand pressuring forwards in a geyser effect which coated along one of the standing strawmen. It quelled the fire in a sizzling sound when the cool wetness of water often accompanied the presence of a fire trying to keep itself alive.

    Fugue State [JCINK]

    JCINK Premium ♦ 2+yr old ♦ 18+ ♦ relaxed freeform app ♦ 20+ speciesThere was no grand ta da! No sudden realization that your neighbors could conjure fire or transformed at the whim of the moon. This world has never been anything other than what it is now, a free-for-all, a melting pot of species and people that have always been predisposed to magic. It's not a sleepy little town, we're not tucked away in the mountains somewhere.This is a the sprawling city of San Francisco, the city by the bay. Our city. A financial testament built around the import and export of goods and a naval hub that has a vast and rich history. A city foreshadowed by a prison that's 'not been used since forever' (a lie, to be sure) and a giant golden gate that's no more gold than it is supported solely on the hopes and dreams of your fellow man. This is the real world and we are its real people.We are real and this is the story of our endurance, every gritty terrible day of it.SITE INFO -- SPECIES -- CLAIMS -- WANT ADS -- CANONS -- LINK BACK
  7. Kate listened, a bemused smile on her face. More wine for the wine gods, she poured herself another drink. Her tolerance was so much higher these days, too many nights alone while Hazel was up at the school. She let out a soft sigh, and the look she gave him was (for once) a pure reflection of how she felt. Relaxed, not at all worried about any potential consequences, and with a fondness for Boaz and his adorable little concerns. "Alan is a good friend, yes," she acknowledged. "More a constant pain in my arse, but it is what it is---we have a lot of history. You know that, surely? He wanted to marry me at one point, but... it'd only been a few years since we lost Calinda. Daddy would not have survived the heartbreak of losing me too. Even if that would have been his own choice, I couldn't do it to him," Kate frowned, rolling her eyes at her own past stupidity. "We do such dumb things for the people we think we should love." Kate's relationship with her parents was a rough one. She still spoke to, and took care of them---dutiful daughter that she was, but neither her mother nor father had met Hazel. They had not been invited to her wedding. Kate had been her Daddy's girl, his perfect princess, until the moment it all came crashing down. After Calinda, the curtains had been pulled back and Kate didn't like the family she found herself in. Nothing had been the same after that. "But, you know. We got over it. And the seven thousand times it started and ended, we always come back to where we are. Because I trust him, and... at the end of the day, we're friends. Always have been, always will be." and he would always be a pain in her arse, and she would bite back the same way. That's just who they were. Like family. Better family than she'd been born with, that was for sure. "I don't really have much to offer you, Boaz," Kate admitted with a sigh. "You deserve so much more than I can give. A family, for one. Your own children. Less... complications. All I've got is mountains of baggage wrapped in a body too damaged to carry another baby. I was lucky to get Hazel. There's always the minute possibility of Matthew waking up, and then what? What happens then? What if he wakes up and we don't fit together anymore? Or I've moved on to someone else, and suddenly I need to choose?" Kate closed her eyes, exhaling as if she could breathe out the demons and confused thoughts that plagued her. "But going to a bar and picking an opportunity at random was never my style, either. There's no soul in it. No real connection. I miss that more than anything. Trusting someone enough to share your whole self with them, to... let them see you at your most vulnerable. Know that when the world crashes on you in the dark of the night, they're there to hold you down." her smile now was sad, reflective. "Ultimately, once I trust someone like that... I don't let them go. It's a bond for life, no matter what happens. It's why Alan and I always go back to where we are. Why my first husband is still a part of my life. It's not the kind of love they write movies about, but... it's very close," Kate was picky about partners. She was picky about everything. It took a lot for her to let go, to really let go. "I feel like I can trust you like that. And I want to. I don't know what comes next, or how it all works out, but..." Kate pushed herself to stand properly, stepping over to stand in front of Boaz, her wine glass held in front of her, grasped like a security blanket. "I do know that I'd like to be closer to you. Is that... okay?"

  9. Boaz was not easily rattled… usually anyway. women always seemed to do the right things rattle them. Letting out a small chuckle he nodded. ”It’s not just the sobriety to take into account.” He said with a small sigh. It was not as though he knew what he was looking for but based on the conversations he didn’t think that they wanted the same things. Boaz was not just looking for a little something- he wanted something serious in his life. He had tried for the easy breasy thing, but it nnever really worked out for him. He ultimately wanted more- or if he didn’t they did. Relationships were already complicated he was not sure he then wanted to live up to this woman’s husband. The fact was, he couldn’t. ”I think we should think about the fact that my boss is your good friend, your daughter is in my class.” He mentioned. If and when this went south there were still those lasting connections. Glancing at her for a moment. There was no way they got out of this without some kind of pain. Right? Boaz was also not the guy that was picked when it came down to it. Most liked the idea of him, he was a muggle, he had lots of tattoos and he was the sort of guy that pissed your father off when you brought him home. He knew that about himself- but that didn’t mean he still didn’t find himself upset at the idea of it. ”I want to build a relationship with someone. That’s always been my aim.” he said with a small shrug. He didn’t know if she actually wanted that, or if she was looking for a rebound. Boaz felt he was worth more than someone’s rebound. Not that he was better or worse than anyone else… he just wanted more, he deserved more and he didn’t know if Kate was actually able to give him more.
  10. There was not a lot that she shared here. She was not supposed to share anything anyway. Not with muggles- which was usually what she dealt with here, with a few notable exceptions. She looked at the young woman and smiled. It was one of those thing he had learned to be coy about. ”I grew up all over Australia. My parents moved quite a bit- we lived in an RV.” She had liked it honestly, they didn’t have too many material things and they were able to enjoy themselves. ”I didn’t go to uni so there was nothing to study really.” She shrugged her pale shoulders before she looked back at the young woman. ”usually I just sleep… since I’m up most of the night doing things.” She said with a smile as she looked at her. ”What about you? What do you usually do around this time?”
  11. ”Guess so.” She agreed as she sat back on the couch. It was late… she was tired and a little disappointed. She settled into the couch for a moment as she nodded at him. She had honestly thought she would never have children.. As much as she loved Jason, she would have been miserable without having children. She had been worried at the time that she had made a mistake marrying him- that there would always be a point of contention in the marriage. She had been worried after they found out she would wake up and he would be gone. The most recent fight had made her worry about the same thing. Though it had been Orion who had fled. She would need to visit him as soon as he settled. She worried about the boy, she worried that Atlas had not found them. ”who knew you would decide having kids would be an okay thing.” Looking at the baby she shook her head. ”No, I think she’ll have that covered. Lot never had to chase them away. I always chased them away myself.” She said with a smile It was something she had no issue with. ”I feel as though she will do just fine on her own.” She said with a smile.
  12. Last week
  13. It seemed to be often that he'd find himself in these positions, meeting people or some how greeting them. Of course, the last thing that had been expected in the day was meeting a person who also happened to be a centaur. She also wasn't what he had expected her to be, there was a form of charm towards her aside from not only the exotic nature of what so was but it had been tacked onto the same reasoning of where, which was caught his attention the moment she had responded in an entirely different language. It had been some time since he had heard that particular style of accent - at least he remembered it from a bar one night. A light chuckle eased out of Alexander accompanied by a wide smile while one of his hands weaved through the black locks. "Aaah, no need to apologize. I know that kind of problem. Er. . . Sort of." Not in the sense of languages but he seemed he found himself often inserting musical lines as words to respond with. "It's nice to meet you, Evony! Haha, Has a pretty smooth style to the name." With a smooth nod of his head an appraised wonderment lingered within his gaze. Names, they were always interesting and powerful to him. A playful scoff pulsed out of his lips. "Don't shower too much attention on the old girl! She's a glutton for it." His hand tapped the base of his guitar lightly with a firm wink that only seemed to accentuate the confident aura. The way her arm adjusted and shifted towards the wall with wand in hand drew an impressed hum from him. It seemed almost effortless or more second nature in the manner it was stricken. When his eyes returned back to focus more on her entire form he was able to notice due to less of a shock the chestnut coating of her lower portion which was complimentary to the hair that flowed down from the top of her head. "Yeesh~. All the way from France? And Beauxbaton at that. . . I don't know much about it but in my old school they talked about the more prominent schools more often." Benefits of being in a private school, downfall, they almost always talked up the more 'Fairer sex' from those kinds of schools due to the all boys exclusion. Thank Merlin's pointy hat that he wasn't in that situation any more. "Hey, the more the merrier to study. Always cool meeting new people and from a different place at that, just reminds me of how much more I have to learn about things." As she bent a bit more downwards to grasp his hand in greeting he shook firmly, at least as firmly as he could. He had hoped he wasn't too much of an inconvenience to her posture with his own height in comparison. Considering this he only allowed for the physical greeting to last for a few seconds before his arm would recede back to his side just so she wouldn't have to lean over for too long. Snickering his head shook easily. "I don't think -anyone- would want me being the head of the academy." Not that a Spencer couldn't do it, a Spencer -was- doing it. He just was a bad choice in general in his mind. "Just a wandering student whose trying to learn and doing it badly." The final words were spoken in a tone to heighten his clear jest of the self-barb. "I could always take you to his office if he's in? I'm in no rush."
  14. "I'm just exhausted," she admitted with a slight eye roll. Tired was the norm, but when exhausted happened, everything was thrown out of whack. "It's my last year, and I still sometimes feel like I'm back at square one in my classes." Her thesis was going well. The research and writing was never an issue. And she had been traveling to others dreams less and less frequently, only by choice, to preserve her strength for the day, but that was starting to fail and all of the progress she had made towards performing spells was for naught, it seemed. His confirmation that he was indeed happy caused a big grin to slide across her face. Never mind that the occasional check in to her family dreams to make sure that all was well had already told her that he and Auds were happy. But hearing him say it was far better. "What?!" She was now far more alert. Grinning and trying to contain the excitement. Rachel, despite having given birth to her nieces and nephews, was not great for them at all. And in her opinion, divorce was long overdue. "Al, thats great. This is so great. Have you told Mum at all? Oh gosh, now I might have to make supper tonight. How do you feel about cake too? I can get something together."
  15. It wasn't long, barely even a moment really, before someone else entered the Foyer. A young man in his late teens with long black hair and striking blue eyes. Evony watched him for a moment, he moved with confidence and purpose, though he didn't appear to be in a hurry. and as those blue orbs fell on her, she couldn't help but get a shiver as if someone had doused her in cold water. Before she had left her previous school, many of her friends had expressed their jealousy at her being able to go and mingle with "Those hot aussie boys." She had dismissed the notion as nothing more than idle girl chatter, but now she had a better understanding of what they meant. For a human, he wasn't bad looking at all. "Oui. Je Viens de transferer. Je suis Evony..." She stopped a moment, blushing at her mistake. It was true her grasp on English was more than enough to get by. She had understood him perfectly, however, when it came to replying she had instinctively chosen her native tongue. As of yet, she had had very little actual practice conversing with those who spoke English, so she wasn't used to actually speaking in it first. "Err, Forgive me. I am ze new transfer student. My name is Evony. It is a pleasure to meet you and your Saphire." Her words were rigid and her tone a bit formal, but the message was passed on easily enough and with no stuttering. Without a second thought, she pointed her wand at a nearby wall, and her trunk moved swiftly over to it, setting itself down neatly out of the way. No doubt there would be a network of house elves ready to descend on her belongings and whisk them away to her room the moment she looked away. "I ave come from Beauxbatons in France to study ere wiz you." Her accent rolled her words smoothly making them sound delicate and whimsical. While she spoke she stepped towards Alex offering him her hand with a bright smile. SHe took care to lean down a little so as to make things easier. He was actually surprisingly taller than what she had expected, which made leaning down all the easier. "Forgive me, but I assume you are not ze head of ze academy ere to welcome me."

  17. Sure has gotten a bit chilly lately. . . You know what means~. Bonfires!

  18. "I suppose you're right." Bryan said. He really didn't ever feel his age. "I may be forty-five, but I feel at least thirty." He said, and chuckled. "But, enough of the age silly talk. Just a number, right?" "It really is an amazing thing." He said about the Wizards Without Borders. "There are so many places out there with no good medical care, and it just warms my heart that I was able to help out with that." Bryan had pretty much devoted his entire life to helping others, but that came with a price. He hadn't really spent the time helping himself. He'd spent his life learning, and never really focused on himself. That could be the depressing part. Perhaps it was why he spent so much time at the bar. Bryan listened as she spoke about her job, and nodded in appropriate spots. "Unwilling fires at random, eh? That's....concerning. Perhaps some sort of curse? Or perhaps an ability that they don't know about and not properly disciplined with." He said, giving some advice. "It could really be a number of things." He shrugged. "But, I can see where pranks and whatnot could be an issue. Had my fair share in school to deal with myself. Of course, I was usually the one being pranked." He said, chuckling. "I was awfully nerdy."
  19. Zane nodded at Lorelei. "I suppose that I'm just not very strong willed. It's hard to fight this curse." Then, as she spoke about Thomas Zane listened, and nodded some more. "Yes, he has to die." Zane said, frowning. "But, that's easier said than done. Many have tried, and many have failed. Miserably. I don't know what it is about him." Zane sighed. This was going to be a potentially losing battle. It would take a joint effort, and what good would that be able to do? He was stuck in the home, she was in his mind. Nobody would ever really understand this situation. As she talked to him about what this would encompass with Améa, Zane listened carefully. He had to know she would be safe, but as with everything in their family, this was confusing. But, Zane trusted that they would keep him safe. He frowned though whenever she mentioned that they were all unaware he was under the curse. Of course they were, and they would need to continue to be oblivious, as much as it pained him. "She can't know. You need her, and she needs her family. If she were to know, she would do something foolish, and it would in turn hurt her, get her killed, and cause pain to your family." It sucked, but that was life. He would have to figure this one out on his own, and hope that she would understand afterwards if he were to get everything in the open. When she told him that Thomas would not be able to pry into any of this, he breathed a sigh of relief. The last thing he needed was to give Thomas any more ammunition. When the scene returned with Améa and the triplets, he saw the closeness of her and the one next to her. Then when Lorelei spoke those words, it resonated with him. It hit him hard. Zane's legs gave way in his dreamlike state, and he fell down the wall to his butt, and brought his knees to his chest. The tears began pouring down his face. After a moment, he said, "She's...... my daughter?" Zane looked up at Lorelei. "I almost killed my own daughter?" He began to regain his composure, and the anger flashed across his face. "I'm going to kill Thomas, that son of a bitch."
  20. Jason nodded as she said she'd get the bottle, and continued to rock Persephone, hoping to get her calmed down a bit. When she handed him the bottle, and he put it to her mouth, she immediately took to it. "Guess she was hungry then." He said, smiling down at her. At Eudoxia's comment, he looked up at her, and smiled. "We did though, and I wouldn't have it any other way." After Silas had been born, Jason hadn't really wanted another child. But, everything happens for a reason. Jason wouldn't want it any other way now. Their family felt complete, and while they still had a few things that they had to work on themselves, everything was perfect. He looked down at Persephone, and smiled at her as she chugged down her bottle. "She's perfect, really. She has your eyes to, which I just love..." He looked up at Eudoxia. "Which means I'll have to kick the boys.......butts."

  22. This had typically been the time of day where Alexander had a bit more 'time' to himself, or rather, he was in the limbo of waiting for either his wife, one of his friends, or just trying to find the time to poke at Adele. He had been sitting down to catch his breath for a moment while leaning against one of the many tables that had been situated in the Great Hall. An arm arches over across his midsection while his eyes drifted down to look at the time. "Aaaah. . . It's about that time to get moving anyways." One hand leans against the bench to lift his body upwards while the other hung low to grasp the neck of his guitar which lovingly had been dubbed 'Sapphire' in the other and made his way towards the entry way. Leading him right out into the Gawler Foyer where he started to sling the guitar's strap around his torso and tightening it to bind against his chest. At first, he hadn't noticed much of a difference as his head lifted up a bit higher than he had bee accustomed to see a towering red-head while he strolled out. Alex's attention quickly snapped which his body followed afterwards while his oddly blue eyes scanned along the much larger oddity than the young girl's height. 'Is. . . That the hind of a horse. . .?' Several times his eyes shuttered as if the vision before him would change like a haze that covered over ones sight after waking up from a daze. 'Nope, not hallucinating. That's DEFINITELY a horses rear connected to a. . . Oh. OH!' Of course, it would take a bit for it to click in his mind never having seen a Centaur before, especially not so far into this part of Wizarding civilization. Truthfully, the young man was tossed in quite the loop with it and then realized in this quick scenario. . . He must look like a donkey's hind. An embarrassed chuckle emitted from him as he quickly shifted to his usual self finally having all the details sorted out in his mind. "Hey there, you must be a new transfer. Er. . . Judging by the floating along luggage." And the fact that he hadn't seen her around before. She's someone a person wouldn't miss what so ever in many factors. "From one new student to another, welcome to Tallygarunga!" Alexander's hand reached out towards Evony's in a greeting. "The names Alexander Winfield, Alex is fine - and this lovely collection of strings and awesome on my back is Sapphire." His head had been reclined to keep his unique blue hues on her, even with the light of the sight giving a bit of assault to his perception.
  23. As Vladimir focused upon Améa and her words, the man could hear sounds entering his head. Music. Notes. Pleasant, if not seemingly augmented in volume. He was not the source of it, and thus logic could only dictate the source to be Améa. This seemed to be confirmed when she expressed to him that the song she wished was not known. As to why it would not be known, Vladimir could not entirely fathom, though he suspected it might have something to do with her family and her magical line. ”I see,” Vladimir replied verbally, opting for using his vocal cords considering Améa had now done the same. He could hear it though within his mind. Vladimir began to memorize the sounds as they entered. In the meantime, he observed the woman turned child sitting there with the cat; it was perhaps a welcome though internal relief to see her eyes turned back to the shade of blue that Vladimir recalled from their days at Tallygarunga. His own red eyes blinked slightly as he continued to process the notes within his head. He locked them away for the time being, as he prepared to play the cello for his audience. ”As you wish,” he told her softly, lifting bow to strings and beginning to play a melody that had been with him since his earliest days; a song mastered by the age of ten and had been the melody of choice upon the rooftops of the school. His face expressed the emotions that would not come forth otherwise these days, a departure from the normal stoicism. Vladimir’s face continued to dance with emotion until the final note sounded, and he allowed his bow arm to rest; his facial features changed as well, and returned to stone. ”Music is a language that need not be translated. It is universal, crossing multitudes of boundaries,” he mused softly to Améa, his mind training to hear more of the notes of the song she had been thinking of previously. ”Shall I play another?”
  24. I am not so sure I am fond of the heat...

  25. It was early in the evening as the older looking van pulled up to the front of the school. The temperature, while not sweltering, was still warm, warm enough to be uncomfortable. Surprisingly it was rather humid, which contributed to an almost oppressive heat. There was the promise of rain, though many of the locals had insisted it was not the case and that there would be several more days before any sort of relief would be felt from the heat. Evony peered out her window, looking at the Academy that would be her new home. She had been excited to see it, though now she had felt strangely disappointed. It was nothing like academy she had come from, Beauxbatons, which in its own rights was a palace surrounded by scenic mountains and forests. This was nothing like the home she had known for the last 5 years. Still, she had elected to this exchange voluntarily and was not entirely put out by the quaint look of Tallygarunga Academy. In truth, she now felt even more excited to see it inside, for it wasn't a secret that many of the quaint places in the magical world held many secrets and vast beauty just out of sight of prying eyes. Perhaps, like the cab she now sat in, which on the inside was more like a spacious train car, this place would hold similar secrets. The driver hurried around the outside of the cab, opening the back and removing her things, before making his way to her door and opening it. He gave her a nod and a toothless smile as he gestured hurriedly for her to exit the cab. As soon as the door opened she was greeted by the sudden and almost violent change in temperature. The compartment she had been relaxing it had been rather comfortable, and now she struggled to adjust to the sudden change. A small cough escaped past her lips as she stepped out of the cab. first her front legs, then her second. It had been a marvel, and perhaps a bit of magic, how she had managed to squeeze herself out the open door, which even now as she turned to look back at it, seemed far to small for her massive frame to fit through. Once she was free, and after making sure that her tail was not in the way, the driver closed the door again, locking the cool air inside the rustic looking vehicle. He nodded again to her, showing his still toothless grin, before scurrying off to the driver seat of the cab and driving off without a word, kicking up a trail of dust behind him. Evony watched as he left, before turning to face the school again. Her smile broadened now as she drew her wand and pointed it at her trunk. "Locomotor!" she declared, her accent causing the words to flow rather sweetly as her trunk lifted a few inches off the ground and began to follow her. With her large stride, it didn't take her long to actually reach the front doors, which seemed to open on their own as if to invite her in. She was shocked to see that there was, at that very moment, no one there at all. Had their been some kind of mistake? Was this even the right place?
  26. Only I would have the idea of taking my bullies with me to Egypt. This is going to be one of 'those' trips I bet.

  27. It has been sometime since I've been back in my Homeland. . . Needless to say, it feels quite. . . Odd.
