  1. “Probably, but it can’t be that hard since classes are mostly mixed years and they have other classes to attend too as well, whenever they are in one of those I’ll be free.” She said. Perhaps she hadn’t thought that through, grading wasn’t that hard either. “And it’ll be mostly simple, preparing classes, grading them, I’m sure it wouldn’t cause too much, don’t worry.” Andrea spoke. “I’m pretty sure your job is a lot more stressful, I can just use a spell to make them quiet or petrify them and it’ll be alright…” she said before turning to Evelyn. “I’m joking, I’m not going to petrify anyone.” she said laughing. At least for the time being she didn't wasn't going to, when the time comes who knows what might happen. Evelyn was perhaps being too sweet. “Alright, we’ll see what we can do and yes I am, you might be one of the few people I tolerate.” She said leaning a bit forward before taking a sip of her drink. "I will be sure to let you know my schedule then, but I'm sure we can work something out."
  2. “Oh and what if they turn on you? Have you thought about that? You’re so used in being the hunter that one day you’re going to be a prey.” She said, but she did know that the day that Derrick got pranked himself he wasn’t going to like, or, was going to be proud of whoever pranked him. “Grading papers is fun especially when you fail everyone, and you can see the light go off in their eyes as their hopes and dreams crash and burn.” She said with a straight and serious face, there was only a small satisfying smile on her face. “I’m joking, I wouldn’t do that.” It seemed he like to prey on others that didn’t exactly fought back, and she began wondering if he was going to make her a target once more, she would have to fight fire with fire in this case. “That’s pure evil, why would you do that to a book?” she said a bit annoyed that someone was capable to treat a book so badly. She just stared at him trying not to laugh as he laughed, trying to maintain the same distant and cold appearance but when he discovered her type of fun she nods. “Well, you’re certainly not stupid. That’s indeed my kind of fun, what can I say? I love to lay down by the pool with a cold drink on my hand…” she said. “Ibiza was the best destination, all strangers.” She admitted, but perhaps she shouldn’t have mentioned it to him, who knows what sort of shenanigans he would do. “I hope now, I don’t feel like having to extinguish fire when it smells so good.” She joked about the smell of cooking meat. He replied to her questions, but they soon reached her classroom, she looked at the door and that was going to be her house for the next school year, however, when he continued and she saw him on the next door she took a deep breath. Derrick was more pleasant than he was in the past, but she suddenly had a feeling that she had a target on her back. “Oh no…I suppose you’ll have to deal with my boring stuff and I will have to deal with you while you play with elements.”
  3. Andrea watched as students got in her class, the number of people was ridiculous. Why? Why are so many people interested in her class? She thought she was getting a few students and she had a feeling those weren't the only students that had signed up for her class. "Oh god, why do you hate me?!" she thought to herself as she looked up. She waited a while longer as people kept getting in, her surprised face was impossible not to notice but soon turned into a desperate look that not many were able to see. Shortly she heard a girl make a question, and a very good one indeed. She approached the girl as the rest of the class was still getting in, she was sure they weren't that interested in the question or else they would have stopped talking, Andrea had a long day ahead with those students. "You can use your hands as a starting point to channel your magic, it's tricky and takes a while to get used to it, but shortly after you learn how to not be dependent of your wand there are other ways to focus, which I will teach." Andrea tried to explain, this girl was probably her first time in a class like that. Once she had answered the girl's question she walked to the front of the board, everyone was still talking, she whistled hard enough for everyone to hear and pay attention to her. "Good morning everyone." she announced looking at the students, she was nervous, it was her first time teaching teens and she was sure it wasn't going to end well, either for her or for them. "Did you all hear the question that was placed? Does anyone know how to focus without using a proper object?" she asked the classroom and waited for people to reply to her, she hoped that at least one or two of them would be able to get it right.
  4. “That’s a fair point, if we were all balanced it would be another question, but some are obsessed with peace and quiet, let’s not forget order, and others like to play pranks on others.” She commented with a smile as she looked at Derrick. “You know I always do what I want and how I want it. Fun means different things to different people.” She announced. Derrick wasn’t unpleasant but perhaps not being a victim of his pranks made him a better company. “I usually always do what I want, and if you think about pranks wandless magic is perfect for that, no one knows.” She said. She looked at Derrick, her eyes had a faint glow to it and her expression seemed like she was preparing something, but she wasn’t, she dislikes pranks, mostly because she was the perfect victim. “That’s just mean, one of these days these nerds are going to turn on your house and I’m going to laugh at that outcome.” She said but couldn’t stop herself and began laughing. Derrick was right, burring one’s head in the books was bad, they needed to read a different book. “Antagonizing them with pranks isn’t going to make it better and yes, yes you are an innocent summer child, I did have a rebellious phase, mine was just not so…flashy.” She announced. As he replied to her question, she could only listen, he had been there longer than she did. “Well you know how it can be, my first time I wanted to do it my way I had blurry vision for a week, I don’t want that but if it makes them learn then so be it, but I’d like my students to not smell like barbecue…” she commented and not many people would find it amusing, probably because it wasn’t, but she couldn’t help to think of a student setting itself on fire accidentally. “But how are your classes going? I have no idea what you teach though.”
  5. Andrea laughed when Evelyn chuckles, for not it was an amusing joke but she was sure that once they did suck the life out of her it wasn’t going to be as amusing, however, Andy was not only curious about her students, she was also a bit nervous about it all, she didn’t exactly study to become a teacher but in the process she ended up doing so by staying some extra years at VMU. “One can’t hurt you.” She said with a wink. As Evelyn agreed that left Andy very pleased. The woman’s food arrived, and she offered Evelyn some by raising her plate towards the blonde. Evelyn proposed that she would clear her schedule, but she seemed like a busy person, at least busier than Andy. “I’m assuming I have more free time than you but sure, I teach wandless magic, there can’t be that many people that chose that class, I remember hearing how badly some people talked about it.” Andy said, not knowing what was waiting for her. To her, that magic came naturally but it was difficult to control, she remembered most people avoided classes like that.
  6. Tag: @Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons Date: OOC Notes: “I like the peace and quiet of a small town what I don’t like is the lack of quiet places to visit. I can’t complain about the teens anyway, they still haven’t sucked the life out of me.” She commented, the last part is a slight joke about the situation, for someone who didn’t like kids very much she sure had to choose a job where she had to deal with them. Their conversation continued. “I don’t like changes, but I’ve been there a couple of times, it’s not bad. Too bad you’re not into that kind of thing, a drink or two wouldn’t hurt anyone.” She commented, trying to sort of convince Evelyn to join her in such a place. She tried to avoid most places without a reliable company just in case some random person decided to talk to her. “Thank. I still haven’t met the devils, but I accept that invitation if next time lunch is on me.” Andrea proposed. “What do you say? Deal?”
  7. Tag: @Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons Date: OOC Notes: “I see, well sometimes you’re so busy than when you have a day off you’re too stunned to do anything, although I am glad I found you here on your day off or I wouldn’t have known you’re living here.” Andrea said. Despite her general dislike for noise, Evelyn was someone she didn’t mind, perhaps they could talk about old days, or perhaps each one would follow their path, depending on what Evelyn wanted, Andrea still couldn’t believe she had signed up for that job. “I’d love that, I don’t know much of this place and who’s better to show me than you?” she commented with a smile. When the employee arrived Andrea placed her order, simple really something to eat and a hot beverage. “I’m glad I ran into you today Evelyn, I was starting to think I was going to die of boredom, there's nothing interesting to do here.” She announced, taking a deep breath and crossed one leg over the other on the chair. Andrea as used to another sort of life, especially since she kept moving around since she was little until she got into VMU, the change was hard but now it's probably going to be even harder. “You need to let me know when you’re free again, maybe we can work something out if you’re up for it.” She proposed. Andrea assumed, from the way Evelyn was talking that she had a pretty busy life, which the woman assumed it couldn’t be easy juggling schedules.
  8. Tag: class students Date: OOC Notes: This was going to be Andrea’s first class at that school and she had every reason to be nervous; teens were overall unpredictable and then there were those who were stubborn and wanted to do the things their own way, she had nothing against her students trying to find new ways, but only after they master the spell. She had no idea what the previous teacher had taught them, but she assumed trying the basic spells was the best. She had a printed sheet with all the easier spells, she assumed everyone already knew how to make the easiest and simplest of spells by using a wand, so they shouldn’t have a problem doing them without one. “This is going to be one hell of a rollercoaster…” she thought to herself as she put small chests on the table, all the chests were locked and unlocking and locking locks were the easiest spells to make without using a wand, it made sense start with those. She wrote on the board the name of the spells they were going try. Andrea sat on the table, one leg over the other and rested her head on her hand, she watched over the empty tables as she waited for her students to show up, she had a list of the students enrolled on and for a moment she regretted ever applying for the position. She glanced over the rest of the paper sheets on her table with detailed information about how to perform said spells. Wandless magic was volatile and hard to control, it was a type of magic that was beyond comprehension to some witches and wizards, hopefully, everyone in this class had some aptitude to it or it was going to be chaotic. She just hopped nothing bad happens to anyone. As the students entered the classroom she got up and watched them get inside, she wanted everyone to be there, so she wouldn’t have to repeat the same thing twice, but that was always going to happen. “Good morning everyone. My name is Andrea Riverpond and I’m your new wandless magic professor.” She announced before looking at the list of the students. “Wandless magic isn’t an easy subject, is highly volatile so I’m expecting all of you to pay attention to details.” She said, crossing her arms and looking at everyone in the classroom. “We’ll be doing easy spells today. Any questions?”
  9. Tag: @Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons Date: - OOC Notes: - Andrea had no idea Evelyn had a daughter, but it had been a while since they spoke. “I’m new here, I have no idea what’s in and what’s out and what these kids talk about. Besides this place what other things exist here? Interesting thing obviously.” Andy said. Everything seemed to be going by so fast that it was hard to even keep track of everything. “I was never fond of tea but it’s not the time for that sort of beverage.” Andy commented with a mischievous smirk. When Evelyn congratulated her Andy smiled and bowed her head lightly. “Thank you, I just hope I don’t have to deal with animals, you know how much I enjoy my quiet time.” She spoke. She didn’t want to be the Professor of a bunch of animals, but they were teens there wasn’t much that she could do. When Andy heard that Evelyn’s daughter was enrolled at the school she smiled. “I hope so. It’ll be my first attempt at teaching, but I’ll be happy if she does, and if she ever needs help with wandless magic I want all of my students to succeed since it isn’t an easy subject, but there’s a trick that makes it easier.” She commented. “If she does let me know, you know how to reach me.” Andy said, smiling at Evelyn. “Got any more plans for today or just going to sit here and drink tea all day?”
  10. Tag: @Derrick Ackers Date: - OOC Notes: - Andrea was starting to regret everything, especially asking someone for help, she couldn’t stand pranks, perhaps when she was younger she would enjoy a few, but now she has no time, nor patience for them. “You know, I wasn’t always this serious, unlike some people I decided to grow up, besides if we’re all fun and games wouldn’t the world be boring as well Mr. Pranks?” she asked, putting her hands on her hips and looking up at him. “Well, we all die eventually, might as well do what we love.” She commented crossing her arms. She rolled her eyes when he mentioned the students reading about what he might have done, and she had a feeling it wasn’t going to end well. “What’s wrong with the Sturts? Nerd hater.” She called him, not exactly serious about it, but if everyone was running around playing pranks no one would graduate. “Rebellious streak?” she repeated before laughing. “You’re a sweet innocent summer child Nerd Hater.” She said with a mischievous smirk on her lips. She was never into pranks but was always a rebel, perhaps not in the same way some people are. When he confirmed her fears about stubborn kids she took a deep breath. “What’s the policy of letting them hurt themselves? When I was learning, me stubborn, I got injured a couple of times until I learned, so is this a possibility or not?” she asked him, hoping it was, after all, it was easier to show teens that when they don’t listen and get hurt it usually means they should listen.
  11. Tag: @Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons Date: - OOC Notes: nyon That seemed to be what normal people used to do, invite others to join them. Andrea didn’t mind joining Evelyn, it had been a while since they’ve talked and there was never a dull moment with the woman, sadly Andrea got bored of others easily, then again a few minutes wouldn’t hurt anyone. “Well, I hope I’m not interrupting anything, but thank you.” She said with a smile and took a seat in front of Evelyn. “So, what do you come here for exactly?” she asked since Evelyn spoke she didn’t go there for tea. As Evelyn complimented Andrea’s choice of clothing, she bowed her head lightly. “I’m very pleased you enjoy my attire, I do my best.” She spoke. It was hard to know if she was joking or not about the situation, but she wasn’t, she was actually proud of her clothing choice. The conversation moved forward and there wasn’t much to tell about her reason to be there but in all honesty, Evelyn didn’t know. “I’m the new wandless magic professor, who knew I’d be teaching teenagers.” She commented. “And it will be challenging, I just hope they aren’t like me when I was their age. How about you? What have you been doing? Besides, experimenting tea.”
  12. Tag: @Derrick Ackers Date: - OOC Notes: nyon She couldn’t really complain much, at least it was a person she already knew and it meant she didn’t have to go through the whole introduction event that people usually did, which was a positive side to the fact that it was him who was going to show her to her classroom. “Good taste? Really? You’re going with that?” she asked him, still regarding his past shenanigans. She had to admit some were pretty good, most of them were decent but some were just bad. “Pranking people is working for you? Because I'm sure it's not working for your victims.” she said curious about his answer to her question. “And I'm assuming you’re not going to stop anytime soon. Just don’t use me as a target, you got plenty of them now, young, full of life, with hopes and dreams, use them.” He replied to her revenge threat, it was more to try and dissuade him, she wasn’t as funny or creative, and if she did something was to send someone to the infirmary. “Are they doing it on their own or do you have anything to do with it? Because I have a feeling you did and you let them get away with it.” She replied. She listened to his answer, about him ending up as a Professor. “Well, I wanted something different and I’m already serious enough, I don’t need elitists telling me what I can or can’t do, besides rich kids are like children…” she stared, but stating that she hated young children might not be a good start of the school year, at least these were old enough. When he spoke, she took it as a compliment. “Thank you, I just hope they aren’t stubborn.” She commented, thinking that it would be fun watching the light fade from their eyes for being stubborn and not being able to perform correctly, it’s probably going to teach them a thing or two about listening.
  13. Tag: @Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons Date: - OOC notes: nothing to see here Andrea watched Evelyn for a moment before the woman spoke, Andrea’s smile soon turned into a mischievous smirk, there was nothing wrong with some fun. “I do apologize for leaving but duty called, however….” Andrea said. It had indeed been a while she had seen Evelyn, they were friendly but, in the past, they didn’t know each other well enough to be friends. She wasn’t the kind of person that used to talk to that many people, Evelyn was one of those few people with whom Andy talked with. “And what if I did?” Andrea asked, still with a smirk on her lips like she was preparing something. Andrea thought about sitting after Evelyn spoke about being late for the date, but instead, she just stood there. “I wanted to look nice, it’s not every day I get to go on a date.” She replied, replying to Evelyn flirt with some of her own. “Got to look on the bright side, at least now I have a date with a cute girl.” She said, it wasn’t exactly a joke, Evelyn was in fact very pretty. “Is the tea any good here? I mean I know this person with whom I’d like to invite for a cup of tea. You know, we need to catch up.”
  14. Tag: @Derrick Ackers Date: Just numbers OOC Notes: no comments without my lawyer As the man finished to talk to, whoever he was talking, Andrea was glad that he was finally able to give her some information, however, when she noticed who it was her smile disappeared and there was a surprised look on her face, which was followed by denial. “Oh god no, not you…” she commented. Andrea hadn't talked with anyone from VMU in a long time, the occasional bump on the street but everyone was so busy these days it wasn't easy to keep track of everyone she knew. She didn’t hate him but she didn’t like being a target, last time she followed the rules, this time he probably won’t be so lucky. “Why of all the people I had to find you, you and your pranks…” she said. She took a deep breath and looked at him. “Hello Derrick, please tell me you’re done with whatever shenanigans you used to do.” She asked, if she didn’t have a target on her back she could be civil and nice to him, he wasn’t exactly a bad person. When he agreed to show her around a genuine smile appeared on her lips and the look of constant judgment and disappointment was gone. “Thank you and no I don’t mind as long as you keep your shenanigans away from me, because this time I will get my revenge.” she warned him, truth be told she wouldn’t be doing much too much, she didn’t have the same imagination he had. “How did you end up here, if you don’t mind me asking? I never considered you to be … don’t take this the wrong way …. teaching material”
  15. Tag: @Derrick Ackers Date: Just numbers OOC Notes: no comments without my lawyer She wondered why things in Australia were so different from some places she had been in, especially the weather, how it was summer in January? Whoever oversaw the weather should be fired, it was the season of snow and warming up next to the fire while waiting for spring to come along and bring it’s joy back into the world, but not in Australia, it was hot, she was sweating, and she was hating the weather. Andrea should be used to the weather by now but being a creature of habits, she would rather complain than to do anything about it. Andrea arrived at the school, she just hoped they had some air conditioner inside. One might ask why doesn’t she use her ability? Well, the answer is quite simple, she prefers complaining about the situation, besides, there are machines that do that. Once inside she wished she had a map or at least some sort of indication to where she was meant to go. She approached a board but there was nothing in it, next logical action, at least to her complicated self was to ask someone, why did she have to talk to people in her first time there? She was expecting things to go smoothly, but she should have expected something like this was going to happen. She approached someone and gently tapped them on the shoulder. "Excuse me, can you please tell me where I can find the school's layout? Or tell me which way is this classroom?" she asked, pointing at the name on the paper she had on her hand; hopefully this person wasn't some random idiot that didn't know where the classroom was.

Secrets

They are secrets after all...

She often avoids long term relationships because she moved a lot growing up, it never allowed her to grow any roots.

She jogs every morning. 

She fears birds.

She was arrested, at least two times, trespassing and breaking into schools and libraries at night, however, it's not on her file and no one seems to know about this.

 

 

General Knowledge

She traveled around a lot;

She studied in three different Wizarding Schools

She dislikes small children (babies - 8 year olds) 

She likes books and silence

Personality

Andy was born in the United States of America, her life was boring, aside from traveling from place to place and never being able to make that many friends over the years.

 

She spent most of her time moving around from place to place due to her parents' line of work because they worked with magical creatures. At a young age, she moved to Brazil, at first her parents were in a secluded village where Ella learned new ways to do magic, eventually, she enrolled in their Wizarding School, Castelobruxo. While in Brazil she developed a taste for magizoology, just like her parents.

 

Her life in Brazil lasted for six years but right after completing her second year in Castelobruxo, Andy and her parents moved to Africa, where she had to enroll in the Wizarding School of that region, Uagadou, there she completed her third and fourth year. While there she learned new abilities, one of them being the wandless magic, Andy's affection towards it grew, her wand wasn't unpredictable, but she always felt that it couldn't be the only way to do magic. 

 

One year before completing her final year at the school she moved to Scotland, she wasn't particularly happy that both her parents decided to move there, she was pleased with her current school, but at least it gave her the opportunity to learn new things, she wasn't even sure how everything worked there, but as soon as she graduated her parents decided to move again, this time to Australia. Upon hearing that they had a University, Andy couldn't wait to get out of Scotland, but when she arrived she saw that the place was even worse, regardless, she pursued her studies further. Her first year as an undergrad student was complicated, she was used to a simpler way of life in Africa and took her too long to adapt to a city where everyone had everything without working too much for it. It took her a while, but she eventually adapted to the comfortable life of the city, but never forgot what she wanted.

 

Being proficient at Wandless Magic, Andy became better by the day and shortly after graduation, she applied to a vacant stop at the local Wizarding School to be a Wandless Magic Professor.

Appearance

Andy is slim and is 155cm tall. Initially, she doesn't look very intimidating, at first glance at least, and may seem younger than she actually is. Her choice of clothing might not be the best, and it makes her look like a cold and distant person, someone who prefers to keep to herself, which is mostly accurate.

 

Her skin has a slightly dark tone to it since her mother is of Mexican descent and her father of Indian descent. She had long brown hair which is rarely tied in a ponytail or in a bun. She also has brown eyes.
