  1. After going through my old room at my aunt's house I found a few boxes. I need to go out to buy another shelf. Who's the poor soul that wants to join me?

  2. Invite Hopelessly Hopeful

    It was a hard thing to do, leaving everything behind, Liv now knew that the reason that May had left had nothing to do with her, but the idea of it still stung, it was still hard to think about it, to talk about and even to try to understand it. She was trying her hardest to keep her emotions in check and she was being able to do so, but it was still hard knowing that the person that she once loved and cherish and that had broken her heart was standing right there. Liv had made a promise never to feel that pain again, and she was planning on never going through it again, so, why was she even there with May? She did want to patch things up, to be friends again, at least friends, she owed May that chance. “I know I can’t really judge you, because, shortly after graduating I left too. Maybe not like you did but I did.” The pain that Liv had caused others probably wasn’t the same pain that May had caused her, but it allowed her to see things through another perspective. Others had given Liv a chance, and she was no better than May. “I guess we have to live with our choices, no matter how painful they are, but there’s no need to be tortured forever.” It wasn’t her intention to keep throwing things like that at May, there was no need either. They were at least doing better than they did the first time they had met after so many years, now they are able to hold a conversation without one getting mat at the other. “Maybe this is hell.” Liv wasn’t sure how May felt about it, but sometimes being alive was a bigger punishment than being dead, hopefully that wasn’t May’s case, or perhaps it was, Liv didn’t know. “I know we can’t turn back time, but things do get better with time.” Hers did, maybe the situation May is in will get better too. The young veela smiled at the Dhampir, a warm smile, maybe a smile she hadn’t given the other girl since she had seen her again after so many years. “We all make mistakes, let’s just focus on trying to patch what was lost, it’s better to have it somewhat functional than to not have it at all…” it was more like an analogy for their relationship, becoming friends again was hard, going back to what it was, probably and most likely impossible, but Liv hoped they could be friends, at least salvage something from the shipwreck, even if it was just a plank.
  3. Invite Hopelessly Hopeful

    Was it funny? Perhaps for the young Dhampir it was, but it certainly wasn’t for Liv. It would be ironic if the universe suddenly decided for May what she should and shouldn’t do, but it wasn’t a good thing. The young veela looked at May, she wasn’t finding that idea amusing, mostly because she still held May close to her heart, sure, it wasn’t the same way as before but they were trying to become friends, to let go of their past and just learn to live in the future the best as they could, which was why Liv wasn’t amused that May could disappear and get injured at any given moment. The stress kept piling up, but there was nothing she can do to prevent it or to stop it, she just needed to learn to live with it. It no longer hurt looking at May, thinking about what they had, and now, possibly about their future as friends, assuming May wouldn’t pull the same stunt again, by leaving everything and everyone, no matter how noble the decision was, its outcomes were everything but noble. And they still needed to work out their friendship, so far, it was going well, they were chatting like regular people without yelling or having random bursts of anger, at least Liv wasn’t having them. It was when May continued that Liv lowered her eyes before looking back at May. She kept the same serenity as before. What was Liv to May? Someone so useless that needed to be protected? That needed to be taken care of like some damsel in distress? Or maybe a toddler that couldn’t even walk straight without falling down, or maybe she was just useless, without the ability to fight for herself. Had May always seen Liv as this inferior being without the ability to do anything? It hurt to think of it like that, but this time Liv was capable of keeping her emotions in check. “I’m sure making that decision wasn’t easy, leaving I mean.” Maybe it wasn’t easy, but Liv still wondered that everything they went through was simply because May pitied her. Was everything they had not real? Maybe it was for the best, at least old feelings wouldn’t get in the way of them trying to at least become friends once more.

      I love the warmth, it's so nice to be under the sun. I personally love doing picnics, especially group picnics, just gathering everyone and have fun, play some games. It's amazing. 

  5. To the finish line

    As her magic began stitching the skin gently, her smile grew as the man spoke, she barely needed to look at the hand to work on it. She was used to deeper cuts, especially when kids decided to fly through the windows while trying to control their brooms, it was just another day. One of her hands held the man’s hand a bit stronger than usual, it was a delicate procedure and while she could do it with her eyes closed, she didn’t’ want him to run away with the hand and making it worse. She let go of his hand and stared at Rhys for a while as he moved his hand, and everything seemed to be alright. “Well, maybe next time it happens you will be using my tip to clean it.” she loved the company, she really did, but she preferred people to visit her without any injuries, not only it was better, she also knew people weren’t sick or in pain. She chuckled at his comment and shook her head. “I worry about everyone Mr. Barrows. You included, but I prefer that the staff doesn’t lose their hands or fingers on my watch.” She joked lightly at the situation, there was no point in getting overly concerned about something like that. “But, if it happens again you know where to find, I’m always here during classes and on call during weekends and nights.” Unlike many staff members she had her own house but being one of the few nurses she always had to be prepared to go to the school in the middle of the night in case there’s an emergency. Olivia was about to let the man go his merry way until she had found the perfect person to try her new game. “Do you fancy a board game Mr. Barrows? I have nothing to do and I just brought a new game for the kids, I’m learning how to play it.”
  6. Invite Hopelessly Hopeful

    If May thought that Liv didn’t understand, she was being extremely naïve about it. She understood it, she knew how hard it was to express certain things, especially things that were hard for the other person to hear, but in the end people had to be honest about it, maybe not right away, but eventually Ian will need to know about it. Olivia looked at Mat and shook her head. “Look, I’m not throwing this at you. Everyone makes mistakes, thinking that whatever they are doing is somehow the only option.” Probably the worst thing was not being able to help, the helpless feeling a person felt when they wanted to help a friend but couldn’t, Liv could understand it better than most. “Just, don’t make him feel useless. Ian might not understand but he can feel something isn’t right.” Ian was probably better at it than Liv was, considering his senses could pick up minimal things. Hearing that May wouldn’t leave, gave Olivia a false sense of security. The young nurse wanted to believe that, but at the same time fear took over her once more, only time could tell if May would leave again or not. “Just give it time, things need time to grow and I don’t think one should lose hope, yet anyway.” Liv was mostly talking for herself. She wanted to believe May’s words, she wanted them to be true and while she couldn’t fully believe her, she had hope that one day she can trust May again like that. Liv took a bite of her food, watching May play with what she had on her plate. What was going through the young Dhampir’s mind? Liv was truly curious, but it wasn’t the time to ask her that, not yet. “As I said, give it time.” She spoke before hearing May chuckle. The half-veela’s lips grew into a confused smile as she watched May. What was May saying? What did she mean by that? Could Liv ask? Was she even allowed to do so considering everything that had happened between them? “Would you like to explain what you mean by that?”
  7. To the finish line

    Liv couldn’t stop a smile from appearing on her lips as she watched the man. All that secrecy for a simple accident. Anyone could let a crystal ball fall and eventually break it, it wasn’t a new event either, considering the number of kids that decide to play with knives, just to end up there, Liv always telling them that next time she won’t use magic, that she will use a proper needle the sew the cut. The threat was nothing but a threat, it was empty, Liv wouldn’t have it in her to hurt another soul, especially if it was a young child. “Accidents happen Mr. Barrows. Maybe next time you can stop by here before making it worse.” He held his hand as gently as she could to exam it. He could have used magic to clean the mess in the first place, perhaps he had forgotten where he was working, where everyone has access to magic and to all the beautiful things it can do. Her hand hanged over the man’s and slowly the cut began to disappear, the slip away as the skin went back to what it used to be and there wasn’t even a single mark after the procedure, and it looked like new. “May I suggest the usage of magic to clean the crystal from the ground next time it happens?” she didn’t let his hand go, she continued to hold it. She doubted the man would even consider listening to her opinion on the matter, but could she even let him go like that? With no form of assistance? No, she couldn’t. “It’s as good as new. Please be careful Mr. Barrows, I’d prefer you to keep both hand and all your fingers.” She joked lightly at the situation, hopping that he would find her little joke about the situation minimally amusing.
  8. To the finish line

    She couldn’t believe her luck, se was starting to think that her day was going to go quiet with nothing else to do but to read the instructions of a game alone. She watched the Professor and her lips stretched into a smile. His visits to the hospital wing were scarce, and her visits to the other parts of the school were pretty much non-existent as she enjoyed the hospital wing more, but she never said no to a visitor from the other side. Maybe she could convince him to play with her? She would have loved that, fresh meat to the loser list. She approached him softly. “Mr. Barrows, hello.” She finally reached the man and looked at his hand before looking at his face. What was he saying? Did he believe she was going to let him leave now? “Oh, you will let me?” her eyes fixated on his face; a slight displeased expression appeared on her face. It was her job, even if he didn’t, she was going to find a way to figure out what was in his hand or what he had done to it. “C’mon, show it, I won’t bite. You have my word.” She stretched out her hand for him to give him hers, she needed to see what she was dealing with. Normal injury? Or was it worse? Last time someone was in the hospital wing was because they fell, cracked their head open and there wasn’t enough magic to treat everything at the same time. She was sure it wouldn’t be as serious as Lisa’s injury, or else he wouldn’t be standing, right? Liv wasn’t even too sure about that after everything she had witnessed.
  9. To the finish line

    Olivia Teagarden
    The school had been interesting in the past few days, aside from the accident where two students got severely injured, someone decided to curse the chairs, which forced her and every nurse in that school to work overtime with all the injured kids that showed up that day. They all had minor injuries, bruises mostly and no one was severely injured, outcomes of a normal prank, prank that forced Liv to tie the chair to the desk after it had escaped from her a second time. During that day, Liv wished she could have talked to the culprits and give them a piece of her mind, she was tired from all the work, but now, thinking about the prank, it was a fun one, no doubt it had to be a Spencer thing, those kids and their imagination never ended, every year they always came up with new things. She was glad that all the commotion was over and the Hospital Wing went back to being the quiet refuge of most students, she didn’t mind, she enjoyed having the company of the most quiet and shy kids, they always had interesting things to tell her and she enjoyed playing games with them, or with those that didn’t mind playing against her. That day things were different, everything was abnormally calm, and no one was showing up, perhaps something more interesting was happening around school. Liv didn’t bother much, it was her job to stay there all day. The young half-veela picked up some candy from the top drawer and started to eat some of them while she opened a game manual to read the rules, maybe if she played alone against herself, or convinced a ghost to play with her. She could get the hang of it for the next time the kids show up, and, with a ghost she could always do the victory dance without making them sad, they were already dead, however, for the time being was better if she played alone. What could go wrong? She set the board on her desk and started to play the game, eventually arguing with herself as she continued. Maybe no one could hear her, or maybe that was enough to draw the necessary attention for a gaming partner, hopefully a teen that was trying to escape the commotion that usually takes place in every area of the school except the Hospital Wing. It didn't take long for her to hear a noise, she got up to look at who it might be. "Hello? May I help you?"

    It was hard to try and open up to people, talk about problems and situations and even getting closer without tripping on a bomb and making it go off, but that was their situation in that moment, not particularly towards one of the other, but also towards others that were left behind without receiving an explanation. Liv too had left, she understood the complications of making peace with those left behind, but May wasn’t lying, she was trying, and she seemed to be trying as hard as she could to make sure things were good between them. It mattered more to Liv that May was trying than the actual outcome of their … whatever they had at that moment. Everyone will be alright, right? “You don’t have to tell him everything, feed him bits and pieces of information, but don’t leave him in the dark.” Liv was talking from experience on that one. White lies served to spare someone of a painful information, but they also grew like a snowball rolling down a hill, growing bigger and bigger until people are finally caught by it, the outcome will eventually hurt more than information being given in small doses. Liv would have preferred that May had been completely honest with her years before, trusting didn’t go easy and they were taking so long to clean the mess, hopefully May won’t make the same mistake with Ian. “Look, trusting isn’t easy. He spent so many years without you that he probably thinks you’ll leave again. I’m not in his mind but give him time.” Maybe Ian felt like Liv did, not wanting to get too close, afraid that May would disappear again. It was still a chance, they both needed to follow their paths and perhaps those paths didn’t include one another, Liv just hopped that May didn’t decide to leave without saying anything again. “Don’t worry too much, take it slow. Baby steps, right?”
  11. Invite Hopelessly Hopeful

    The young Dhampir seemed to be taking Liv’s ideas into consideration, or at least was just saying that so that Liv could leave her alone. It was tricky situation. They promised to be honest with one another, but was Liv really that willing to forgive without thinking about it twice? She had to admit to herself that she wasn’t, and that she was trying. May deserved a second chance, everyone does, May was no different and cutting May’s opportunity to do so wasn’t fair. The opportunity to stop being reminded of the past was tempting but Liv did want to put everything behind, and that meant she had to trust that May’s words weren’t just to make Liv happy. Ian was a sweet boy, Liv couldn’t see why May was having trouble with Ian, but before she could even speak to say anything, May continued to explain to her what was happening. The young nurse got a glimpse of their dynamic, and while she wasn’t a counsellor, maybe the problem could be fixed easily. “Why don’t you be more honest with him? He’s a smart kid, he’ll know when something is up.” Liv didn’t know the kid that well outside school, but he visited her regularly at the Hospital Wing, and for what she knew of him he was very easy to talk with. “But I’m sure if you allow him to visit you whenever he wants and even stay with you, things will get better. Maybe he just needs some time to get used to it, or maybe he doesn’t know how to act around you either.” The same way they were dancing, Ian could be doing something similar, scared not to be enough for May, or that she will leave him again. Being indifferent could be the boy’s defence mechanism to potentially being left behind.

    Shutting all her emotions, or at least act like they don’t exist wasn’t Liv’s style, but she was working hard for everything to move smoothly between the two. They shouldn’t argue, especially not at that moment. She adjusted herself on the chair continued to eat peacefully as she waited for some kind of reply from May, one that Liv was expecting to be avoided in the first place, which came as a surprise when the Dhampir answered without dancing around it like she was trying to avoid a minefield. Should Liv start to trust May once more? Or will it be too soon for it to happen? The thoughts that rushed through Liv’s head were met with May’s answer, making the young half-veela travel back from dreamland. “I don’t think they let you live at the Dojo.” Liv chuckled, trying to follow up on the joke, but it felt a bit forced, like it wasn’t meant to happen. The stress of the dinner was yet to get to her, but it shouldn’t take long for her to feel anxious about it. Did they change that much that they couldn’t have a decent meal with one another without turning it awkward? When May mentioned Ian, Liv smiled, she liked the young man’s company and he was nice and sweet, very caring with everyone, it shouldn’t be too hard for May to get closer to someone who can quickly make friends. “Hmmm well, why not invite him to your house more often? Family dinners and whatnot. Sign a paper that allows him to break curfew to have dinner with you.” Liv suggested. Some students boarded but they also had the town’s house, they could choose where to sleep, maybe if Ian had that opportunity, they could get closer. “Ever considered talking to him about it? I’m sure he’ll love the idea.” Liv spoke, trying to be positive. She wasn’t sure if May would even accept that option, but it was just a matter of time.

Personal
Personality

Ollie is a somewhat nice and kind person. It’s not easy to make her angry, but it’s quite easy to upset her, especially if she feels betrayed by someone. Olivia is fairy trusting, except when it comes to the fact that she’s a half-veela and an metamorphmagus. She believes most people deserve a second chance and is willing to give them, if she can. She likes to help people, family and friends are everything to her and she will do mostly everything for them, whatever they need she will be there, unless it becomes physically impossible for her.

However, one shouldn’t take advantage of Olivia and mistake her kindness for weakness, no matter how loyal and trusting she is she doesn’t like when others take advantage of her and once that trust is broken hardly can go back to the way it was. It’s difficult to anger her but it can be achieved, especially seeing those she cares in danger. When anger she can be dangerous, unpredictable and violent.

She likes sports and physical activity, which is why she was part of the quidditch team while in Tally and also played a little as a university student, only to quit due to incompatibility with classes. Despite of her work she not only enjoys a good quidditch match she also likes to stay active and excercise from time to time.

Olivia isn’t without some negative aspects, she’s stubborn, whenever she needs to tells something that will hurt a person she can’t find a better way to say things so she will be blunt about it. She’s very direct and often speaks her mind, having little or no filter, which is why she often keeps her mouth shut, but can tell when he has hurt someone, which makes her feel bad.

She likes company and has a slight addiction to fire. Due to her vela heritage she tries her best not to call people’s attention and tries to blend in, but sometimes it's not easy.

 

Appearance

Olivia has the average heigh of 160cm. 

She was born with black hair, however as days passed after her birth her hair turned light and lighter until it became almost white, due to her ability she can change hair color at will, which makes people wonder how many times she can dye her hair in a week.  Nowadays is almost impossible to know which is her real hair color. Her iris is slightly grey, gaing a bit of a blue color as it reaches the edges. She has pale and soft skin , however she doesn't get easily burn.

She has blue eyes, which are often hidden behind glasses, except on special occasions.

Relationships
The story so far
History

Being the only child of a veela and a human wizard wasn't an easy life. Her parents were living in Italy when she was born and at first things were good, then things got bad, she was shipped off to her aunt in Australia when she was four years old, her parents remained in Italy and for the first years she received several calls and several letters from them, until one day they were non-existent.

She was home-schooled since she got to Australia by her aunt which helped her develop her abilities, it was only then that they discovered that Olivia had got her father's metamorphmagus ability. Her life wasn’t anything extraordinary, it was very simple and uninteresting, except for a few events. Her aunt, who had to control everything helped Olivia control her emotions, especially anger since she was a quick-tempered child, luckily, anger was relatively under control.

When she was old enough, she enroled into Tally and got sorted into Bourke. Many of the classes she was taken she already had the basic understanding, which was easy to pass. She made a few friends over the years in Tally, but always tried to keep a certain distance, who knew, one day she could get angry and snap at them, so kept the fact that she was a half-veela and a metamorphmagus a secret. She also signed up for the quidditch team and became a chaser. On her senior year in Tally she became the team’s captain.

Once she graduated from Tally she became a VMU student. She decided to pursue the studies in healing, hoping to one day become a nurse. After four years of attending VMU she applied to a job in Italy, hoping to find her parents, but her search was unsuccessful as she ended up traveling from place to place. After spending two months in Italy she moved to Bulgaria, where she remained only a month, her travels continued as she found herself in Israel, spending four months in the country.

After Israel she visited Uganda, being a temporary nurse at the Wizarding School for six months, where she performed the animagus spell, being able to turn into a sparrowhawk, the same animal her patronus is, however it's something she doesn't do often. Leaving Uganda, she moved to India, where she stayed for another six months before returning home, taking the position of school nurse in Tally prior to the end of 2018 school year.
