  1. (Timothea Dracias) Geraldine (nor, indeed, the professor) didn't have to wait long before the crunch of feet on grass became audible. A second later, if one were to turn their head, the person those sounds were originating from came into view: an averagely slender girl of average height and an average head of brown hair, who had an uncommonly mischievous grin on her face as she walked into the area with a sprightly step. Perhaps it was because she liked herbology--perhaps it was because she had finally cracked the code to the perfect stinkbomb recipe. Maybe it was even both. With Tim Dracias, it was rather hard to tell. "Huh," she murmurs to herself through heavy breaths--she wasn't much for walking, or indeed much physical activity. "Second one here. What the hell?"
  2. 6/02/18 It was a hot afternoon, even in the relative shade of the eucalyptus trees of the central gardens. A number of fold out tables had been set up in the shade, complete with chairs and baskets of equipment. Closest to the tree was a wood bench covered with a patchwork quilt and strewn with chalk and odd herbs. Scented pouches hung from the branches of the trees, charmed to give off a cool breeze as they dangled so that the air surrounding the tables was a good ten degrees colder than it should have been. Rue paced around the circumference of the gardens, speaking quietly to the empty air and making odd gestures each time she paused. A flash of green lit from under her feet and she smiled, satisfied. The wards were set, none of the Neighbours would be able to enter should they come looking for her. ‘… and in her right hand, a silver dagger~’ She hummed to herself as she looked over the equipment once more. The roll - check. The subjects - check. Potion - check. Gloves - check. First aid kit - check. ‘She says that I, can’t be your bride~’ All that she needed now were her students. Rue looked at her watch, ten minutes until class time. Oh she did hope she wouldn’t have to give anyone detention on her first day…
  3. Rue was born in South Australia on a bush property an hour or so outside of Ceduna. Her family consisted of a single father raising her along with two other sisters and his elderly mother. Her grandma took care of the children while her father worked in town. She was a solitary child and more than a little odd. Out of all the children in her class, she consistently caused the most trouble. Frogs in the fishtank, a baby wallaby in the lost property basket, odd writing all over the classroom walls, children crying about curses and bunyips. Her father was at a loss. It only got worse once she entered primary school. Finally her grandma took her aside and had a long conversation during which her father was not allowed in the kitchen. After that every weekend and Friday afternoon they would pack a lunch and go walking in the bush. Her dad wasn't sure what they did, but Rue was much calmer in school. Then when she turned eleven, her father woke at midnight to smell burning. Fearing the worst, he entered her bedroom and discovered the incense, the small animal bones and dried plants strewn everywhere with his youngest daughter sitting in the middle, smeared with charcoal. He was furious. Her grandma only scolded her for attempting such an advanced spell. An explanation was due. Her father and grandma had a long conversation and Rue could understand very little of it from listening at the keyhole. But in the morning her father seemed calm and her grandma was writing a letter. The letter was addressed to the Principal of Tallygarunga. 'Sorry, but could you accept a late student?' It wasn't the old magic. It wasn't traditional. They wouldn't teach her how to find a hagstone, or charm a faerie knight. But her grandma was too old to teach her, too frail to keep up with her energy. Rue attended Tally the following year and became quite notorious for her pranks. Fortunately she grew a sense of responsibility and no one was ever seriously hurt. Once she graduated, she decided to stay on as a teacher. She took an apprenticeship with the former herbology expert for three years and later completed a Bachelor of Education at the local muggle university. 2018 will be her first teaching year.
