    Things had taken a bit of a turn for the 'worse' in Sparky's view. Considering a first things and in order of worse to least worse? Had been the topic of teaching Water, the killer of his ambitions. Why did this even have to be an element? It was a thought that crowded into his mind! But he had to deal with it and eat that for breakfast considering he had chosen this post in the first place. At least he wasn't bad with using any of the elemental magic and transmogrifications of spells so that was something. Of course, the initial plan that had been set into mind had quickly been deterred due to the red alert dealing with what seemed to be Auror's at every single corner. Nearly, he could see some pretending to be groundskeepers peaking into the class every five seconds during some kind of false clean up inspection. A sigh exhausted from his as he shook his head and at least he managed to sling enough weight to have Lucy check in on him every so often just for fun and giggles. This kind of sequester was going to be a killer for his intentions with the class. As such he had to get a bit more creative than going off towards the river side bank and having people get intimate with the idea and knowledge of what water could provide and interact with plus the fact that it had been such a major compound in many things, everyday or not. The bell rang and he sat on his desk with both hands pressed on the edges of the desk, the attire he wore had actually been a long cooling robe that not only had the markings of a Professor on them but one who was named as the Head for Spencer due to his affiliation in the past and the fact he knew every trick in the book. Someone had to make sure no one got hurt too badly but still allowed for his alma mater to do what they do best. In the center of the classroom would be a well crafted system of an aqueduct of sorts pieced together with hard-plastic and other magical enmities to keep it flowing in a mystical appeal. This could be considered the height of watching life itself flow through various tubes, spheres, squares, and other kinds of shapes to emphasize the unique talent that the element of water held all of it culmination for it to rise up through another tube and crashing down like a waterfall and turning into a water cyclone that emptied out to begin the process anew, life begets life in the wake of destruction. "Come on in! Take a seat, relax! But not too much we're going to have some kind of fun today!" If he had anything to say about it, he knew this class would be an escape for many students to shake off the weight of the presence of Authority stalking about like zombies or special forces. As well as the reason that they had been placed on School Grounds in the first place. "As you sit down take a look at this here water display that I worked extremely hard on!" At least with help of his resident 'Not really a girlfriend but we're doing stuff' companion, Arti, who had been an art genius in his opinion and made this idea of his possible. "I want you all to get a good look and kind of say what comes to mind when you consider the element of 'Water', what it does, what it can do, the purpose that it holds and most importantly? The various things that it contributes towards."

    QuillBook Before muggles had even dreamed up the internet, wizards were already discovering fun and interesting ways to connect over long distances. Bird mail was slow, especially in inclement weather, and the need for faster communication methods bore fruit in the forms of the Wizarding Wireless, and QuillBook journals. What is a QuillBook? A QuillBook journal is a specially crafted journal that allows the user to read, respond to, and write status updates---in much the same way muggles use Facebook today. In fact, when the internet made sites like Facebook possible, most social media networks were influenced by the way wizarding societies had used QuillBooks for decades. Accessing your QuillBook QuillBooks are so common in wizarding society it's almost weird not to have one. Most wizards will retain the same QuillBook as they get older, filling pages with notes and photographs, and these become treasured tomes that hold all the memories and thoughts a wizard wishes to make public. The spell to access a QuillBook is "diarium nota", with a wand tap to the pages in the precise rhythm set by the wizard upon registering the QuillBook. This is to ensure that only the wizard to whom the QuillBook belongs to can interact with the journal, though it has been known to allow good mimics in. A QuillBook left open can also be accessed by any wizard who picks it up. To "lock" the QuillBook and prevent unauthorised access, simply close the journal. Interacting with QuillBook Adding memories and broadcasts to your QuillBook is easy. Simply open to a blank page, and begin writing. Photographs and other mementos can also be shared via the system by tapping them into place with your wand. To view and interact with new posts, open your QuillBook to the "View" section of the journal. Here, your journal will list posts by other QuillBook users under three default categories: My friends My family Around me You can also configure different lists of particular people you wish to follow (such as celebrities, favourite product brands, and other groups that interest you). These will appear as later pages in the View section of your QuillBook journal. Is there an app for that? With more and more wizards picking up muggle technologies as well as magic, some clever developers extended the QuillBook system into the digital space as well. Tech-savvy wizards with magic-proofed smartphones can access QuillBook through the QuillBook app, and post/share/interact with content as muggles do with Facebook and other similar apps. Who can see my QuillBook content? Although QuillBook sorts content according to who it knows your friends and family are, all content posted on QuillBook is public. QuillBook journals within a 10km radius of your current location will register and list your posts, even if you do not know the owner. This feature enables wizarding communities to share messages with each other, and to connect in muggle-populated areas. What is QuillBook OOC? At Tally we use the board's native status updates feature as QuillBook. You can view the recent updates, and create your own post, in the QuillBook block found on the main index page, and also beside the online user list. You can also add a QuillBook post by clicking "Status" under your "Create" menu in the top bar.

    Although it was absolutely hilarious that Stuart had decided he was going to be a pain in the arse to both herself and Alan today, Audrey did actually feel a bit nauseous, being bounced and whirled and tilted around on his shoulder. It was strange, because she didn't remember chocolate ever making her feel sick, no matter how much she ate, but she supposed she had really gorged herself this year, with no shame at all. It wasn't as though Alan and the kids hadn't seen her do it every year for the past few years. However, all attention shifted to the children that ran up to Alan, including Stuart's, interested in learning why they were so excited. As all in the near vicinity heard the excited and loud voices asking their father and herself about an apparent sibling for Christmas, Audrey stared. She didn't say anything right away, even though she'd almost laughed. What had stopped her from laughing was that she actually had to think about that. When was the last time she'd actually had her period? A very slow but terrifying realisation began to creep over her as the young woman realised she hadn't actually even thought about keeping track of it. But that she knew there'd been no week-long breaks between herself and Alan and their extra-curriculars ever since the conference. "Stu... I need down, I think I'm gonna puke," Audrey croaked, and there was a desperation in her voice, one that the man knew all too well as he did set her down and accio'd a bin over to them, before promptly handing it to Alan to hold for her. His cousin was the one who'd got into this mess, and true to Alan, hadn't actually thought everything through properly. "Come on kids! Let's go raid the chocolate fountain over there!" Stuart began to herd Alan's three away, while shaking his head and wagging a finger at his terrible twin cousins. That was totally cheating, not to mention, totally ruining a potential Christmas surprise! Meanwhile, Audrey was rocking a little, though reached for the bin, she definitely felt something coming up. "Ohshitohshitohshit..." The young woman mumbled. As excellently as she kept Alan's life organised, she was so hopeless when it came to herself.

    Early in the day. . . This had been an awkward start to an even more awkward 'Holiday'. After being pressured by his friend, Eudoxia, to finally give in and ask the 'Pretty Novelist' out for Valentines Day, Dylan, made his way towards the school. He left to make it their early purposefully to avoid the red-haired woman, perhaps at an attempt to be romantic or even the fact that certain habits were hard to break. As the day begun a new for the school and it's very classes he swung in under his hidden guise as 'Gilliam the Wandmaker' proclaiming that he had a few spare wands for the DADA class and was shown the direction towards there. While it wasn't a lie there had been an ulterior motive for the Irishman. As he stepped into the classroom he found that Caitlin had not yet arrived which did wonders for him. He lowered a well made chest next to the desk and then left a small rose with a note on top of the desk that would be hard to miss the moment she'd walk into it. He could only hope that this kind of gesture could be considered as some form of step. The note would read: 'Dear Caitlin Sullivan, I am not entirely used to these kind of requests in person, so this is the best I could manage within my limited talents and experience. To ask you to meet me at the Italian restaurant, Vincente's, at eight o' clock tonight. If you don't show up I'd understand but I will be there waiting, formal-casual dress code.' He wanted her to feel pretty but also at her own pace, in what she felt comfortable wearing. Once he had felt it was properly placed in an easy to see position he'd quickly leave from the school grounds and make his way back towards the Wandshop. He had already informed Stardust that he'd be leaving early for 'Prior engagements.' but it was hard to hide what it really was considering what the day's intention had been. When the hours rolled closer to the meeting time he departed and went straight to his home to prepare himself in some of his finest clothing. He had no idea why he decided to heed such a request but he already set it in motion and needed to see it through. He decided that he'd wear a black long button shirt with an emerald vest that seemed to accent it along with an emerald colored tie that slipped just under it and give a more presenting apparel, the slacks were also a smooth black color and he choose to wore brown brogue's. A way to show a bit of his Irish heritage in how he chose to look, a bit of respect for both of their heritages really to some degree. In truth he wasn't sure how this night would go in particular but things were already tense between the two of them even though they were in the phase of just trying to get used to one another. Dylan just couldn't get over the attraction that he's always felt for the woman. At Vincente's. . . Dylan chose to wait outside for her with his hands curled along one another and settled against his abdomen. The reason he didn't opt to pick her up was mostly in consideration of her Niece not knowing about him in the first place, but also that he was trying to court her aunt. Most importantly, it needed to feel like it was her choice and not strong armed by him showing up which could add an odd presence of pressure. Not that he expected her to feel that way, but courtesy was what he had been trying to offer. He raised an arm up to look at his watch and kept his eyes opened and peeled for the woman. For all the things he had been able to face and conqueor, the arena of romance was something that he could never fully beat and with this particular opponent that he had hoped would arrive well. . . For someone who had been so new to it once more he had chosen one who'd be the greatest challenge within his entire life.

    Easter chocolate? There was lots that morning in the Burdett household, being that it was Audrey's favourite day of the year. She had woken up especially early to wish Alan a very Happy Easter, before any kids could catch them out. Why they were sneaking around was still something they hadn't discussed. She knew the children would probably be happy. But she'd kept in mind Kate's words. It was for Alan's sake, easing him into the idea of something 'serious'. She didn't mind. They still lived like normal, everything was the same... they just had... a bit more private time these days as well. Audrey was well aware not a single person was fooled. She didn't care. Alan seemed to think they were keeping it secret well enough. Poor guy. As they arrived at the party, however, Audrey couldn't help the small squeal of excitement at the way everything had been set up. She had to admit, the Blair boys had a flair for party planning. She was dressed in her simple blue Belle dress, her hair done up in a ponytail with a blue ribbon, and Alan was a great furry Beast. Cameron was dressed as Cogsworth, Sarah as Mrs Pots, and Tavi was an adorable little teacup, holding her sister's hand as they waddled side-by-side, causing Audrey to only die more from the cute. "Argh! This is amazing!" Audrey exclaimed, bouncing on her toes a little... she turned to Alan, about to say something else, when a large figure suddenly swept her up and over his shoulder, all she caught was dark hair slicked back into a tie at the back of his head and the red shirt. But she recognised the voice as he ran off with her singing: "Noooooo onnnnnne's slick as Gaston, No one's quick as Gaston, No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston's, For there's no man in town half as manlyyyyy..." "Oh my Merlin... Stuart!" Audrey half-screamed, half-laughed as Alan's cousin cheekily stole off with her, flexing his free arm as he flashed a winning grin at bystanders while running away with Alan's date.

    Perhaps the girl knew on some level that Aiden was missing out on the nurturing tenderness that only a mother could give, or at least that came from a a caring female figure. She did not know what it was like at home for him, clearly it was not a bad life, and people worried for him, but there were some things she knew that were important to children, especially those who had undergone traumatic events. She was no mother, but she could still comfort. Sometimes the ability to comfort one's soul could heal them more than healing physical wounds. And this boy still had a role to play, one that required nurturing him and his goals to become one who would save lives in the distant future. "It is something that I was born able to do, as was my mother able to also," Lorelei explained quietly. To offer any further explanation than that would only confuse Aiden, especially in his current state. He was not of a mind to know things that were not supposed to be shared with his kind anyway. Whether or not she felt he was worth sharing that secret with in the future remained to be seen, but for now it was enough to simply admit that she was gifted in a way that others were not. "Yes. I can make it that your mind is not ravaged by such things for a night. For more than one night, if you decide you are in need of even more rest," A small nod was given as the girl's arms loosened from their hold and she stepped back around to crouch down in front of him. A kind smile made her features soften and for a moment she appeared older than the child she was supposed to be. A trick of the light, perhaps, or simply that look in her eyes that held intelligence that no child should be aware of. There were reasons that she was not exactly popular among other children her age. Cameron and Hazel accepted Lorelei as she was, but others seemed to be able to sense that she was just... different. She didn't belong in the Bilby school, not even in Tally really. But she did much prefer the senior school, even if she couldn't read a lot of the larger books. That thought itself formed an idea in her mind, and her expression changed to a thoughtful inquisitiveness as she considered a moment before blinking at Aiden and the books around him. "In return, you can help me to learn with spelling and reading and writing? I am not very good with it, and teacher is always wanting for us to write things," The girl's lips formed a small pout, as though she didn't enjoy nor understand the whole idea of having to write things down. She knew plenty, why couldn't she simply tell them instead of wasting ink and paper?

    "Then hopefully you actually got some rest, that isn't an easy trip to make with children especially with the kind of traumatic situation as dealing with family can often be with barely any break." Not that it was something that he knew a lot about, these days he often forgot how life had been or rather how it all made him feel. There were no good memories no rise in the hard times, it simply just was one expectation after another and eventually all of them seemed to blend into one another. It was certainly something that they all had their birthday around the same time of year, an odd occurrence and expensive. Not to mention potentially chaotic the older they went considering more adult activities were now up on the pedestal to be used. "Happy belated birthday. I would have had a gift prepared but I have been a bit. . . Preoccupied of late, to be honest." Ever since he and Cate had their encounter at the restaurant back in February things had been on a course of trying to discover. Dylan opted to avoid mentioning how her marriage had been going, he knew it'd take more than a month to work everything out and to be entirely honest he wasn't sure how much more help he'd be on that front other than being supportive in his usual way. Arms crossed over his chest as he listened to how her siblings he had asked about had been doing, particularly, because those two seemed to have had a pretty harsh set of things going for them in the current moment. Even with Lot being exonerated many jobs would potentially see him as a flight risk even if there no longer had been a fact to back up that perception, and Orion, well. . . Teens always need a place to explode the sudden changes and upheaval's of life especially with that young ones particular scenario. "It is a sudden change. Something that any person would have a hard time adjusting to at first especially when you consider he had been pushed into a world that he was not familiar with what so ever." In hindsight, it may have been good for him, but on many levels it was extremely cruel. Then again, life wasn't something that had ever been known to be truly caring or kind. Eyes then turned towards Silas who had been putting up a front of shyness. That was fine by him personally, he was never sure how to address or connect with children. That also had been due to the fact he had never been in a situation where that could be counted as part of his everyday life. Much of what he knew had been from one adult to another and then some. "It is nice to meet you, Silas. No need to hide yourself, lad. I don't bite." Much, anyways. Dylan's eyes shifted towards Doe. "Lunch? Hrm. . . Well, I have to admit I am a bit famished. I wouldn't mind grabbing a bite." It had been growing time for him anyways. "Dusty, I'm going to take my break now. Please, don't stay the entire time in the back with your animals." He didn't really wait for the Fairie's response before turning towards Silas' who had made a remark on what he was going to eat. "Grilled cheese and pickles? What do you choose to drink with it? Hm. .. Let me guess, Raspberry juice."-

    How did he manage to get himself talked up into this particular situation? By self coaching that's why and it nagged at him that he would even push himself enough to walk into a pet store. To hear everything at such a high degree was the most annoying thing he could have ever considered and what made it worse? Each animal had its own sound, the way its body reacted to the natural feeling of being alive and on top of that the way their natural instincts governed to make some of the worse noises around. Scratching noises, the sound of fur and skin being slide across some form of metallic object, the barking's and mewling's of dogs and cats along with both kinds of animal's deciding it'd be a good moment to start pawing at whatever had been around. A hand rose up to one ear and his eyes widened trying to resist the urge of feeling like a drill right in the center of his brain. "Nosferatu. . . What in the hell are these animals have? ADHD?" He shook his head. The reason he was even near Hoot's & Whispers had been him meeting up with Rosie involving his mother, he still hadn't chewed her out about ditching at his hard worked dinner. Realization then struck that Gabby's birthday was coming soon and she could use a little cuddle buddy around the house, especially to help her develop more of that natural discipline in her. He didn't think Gemini would mind too much but he also felt it was good to force certain things on the single mother, only fair that he return the favor. What would have made a proper gift? A young girl who had a fearless streak could take any pet but it also just had to fit her personality which meant. . . Snakes were out of the question! As he passed through the isles he could see the various options that they had for entertaining the different animals, making sure they got the exercise that they needed and kept up with everything. Marcus drew closer to the section where they seemed to keep much of the rodent population that could be considered domesticated pets. He leaned in to see one that had been running along a small wheel provided for it on the inside of the tank and he gave a gentle tap. "Well~ Hello there~. How are you hanging little gu-" It didn't take long for the rodent to suddenly freak out as if it were being hunted down and bolted faster than it was running on the wheel to hide in a nearby false house that gave it a sense of safety. He snorted lightly. "Hey, if I was going to eat you, then you'd have already been lunch!" He whispered threateningly. He should have thought this over, some animals with a higher survival instinct would definitely sense something was a bit more 'off' about him, that he'd be someone that would chase them and tackle them down like a predator. Though none of these creatures were justifiably a morsel to him, for starters, they were animals and not of humanoid status that already struck them off of his list! "Barely have enough of a supply to even satisfy me, punk." It didn't take him long to turn away and decide for animals that typically didn't have such a high pull of that level of survival in them. Well. . . Looked like his options were going to be Cats or Dogs, but even those particular animals he needed to be careful a bout. Marcus passed by a man, who by all descriptors, looked about as foreign as he did. Barely stepping into the pen where they kept majority of their feline tenants and there had been a ring of hisses from some of the ones that felt a bit more threatened than they needed to be. "Lords. . . You figure they'd let me say something before actually hissing at me. They all must be part of the demon cat cults." Yes, some cats, were just evil by nature. True evil that fooled people and planned the down fall of humanity and no one can say any different.

    I t was not often that Stella took a patron up on their offer to meet up later. Mostly because that could lead to some interesting drama and she had not really wanted to brand her workplace with drama. A patron gets too grabby, too flirtatious. Though what had happened the previous night had not been flirting, it was more like two predators circling one another deciding who was higher on the food chain. It had bred curiosity. He was not like most of the men she had encountered at the club. Though why that was she couldn’t put a finger on it. Rather than fight the curiosity she had decided to give in. To follow this white rabbit down whatever rabbit hole he was leading her down. Stella did not think she would have trouble getting herself back out again. Unlike Alice she came equipped some rather helpful skills. She was not scared of him, not really. She worried about what others would do if they knew the extent of the danger she brought to them. It had been a while since she had walked the beach, she had worked most of the past few months. It kept her busy. She missed the peace she found. The way the water looked bathed in moonlight, it glittered in an ethereal way. At least Stella had always thought so. She often thought of the poem The Lady Of Shallott. Or when the moon was overhead, came two you8ng lovers lately wed; I am half sick of shadows said the lady of Shallott She often thought she identified with her far more now than she had before. A Long drawn carol, mournful holy, she chanted loudly, chanted lowly, till her eyes were darkened wholly and her smooth face sharpened slowly. A pale pale corpse she floated by, dead cold, between the houses high dead into towered Camelot.” For whatever the reason she felt haunted by the poem. She found herself reading things with a new perspective since her transformation, things had made a new impression on her. Things like this poem which she felt a little differently than before. She let out a small sigh as she walked through the sand. She had taken her shoes off and they dangled in her hand as she walked. She was not surprised to see him. Though he seemed to think he may have scared her away. There was not much that she was scared of aside from maybe herself. And those who would want her dead. The idea of her head on a spike was one she liked to shy away from. ”Are you really so surprised?” She asked him as he came into view. That feeling in her stomach returned. ”I think you may have been hoping I wouldn’t show up.” She said with an accusing but teasing tone. ”It would give you an excuse to not decide what it is about me that scares you a bit.” She was not sure if scare was the right word. However she recognized the curiosity in him. It was only because she had also reflected that curiosity.
