  1. Invite Sticky troubles

    She wasn’t especially happy but by now she was starting to get used to the annoying Spencer, almost like Gwen, tolerance by proximity. His question was different, weird and it made no sense, why was he even asking her why did they swim? She didn’t know how to answer such a question, and as much as she hated to admit she didn’t know the answer to that question, she couldn’t just ignore it, they were after all stuck to one another for the duration of the glue or at least until someone could dispel it. She shrugged at his question; she didn’t know how to reply to it. She didn’t seem too amused but let the little cute nickname pass. Did she look like a Letty to him? Colette didn’t struggle much upon seeing the bushlands and where he was taking her, well, taking them. She wondered why they left the safe path, but no matter how much she complained about it they were just going to continue. She had picked up something different about it, but she couldn’t have guessed he was American, maybe she’s just poor with accents considering her slight German accent when talking to people, which becomes thicker if she starts to trust the people around her. “I come from Germany, my school was in Scandinavia, we have prairies and ice.” She commented, low tone instead of the argumentative one she liked to use. “We didn’t get to do much exploring, but I do like a good story.” Just like a curious child, Colette liked hearing about other things, to absorb the knowledge, but she wasn’t too adventurous, though, she was enjoying being there. Was she going to admit it? No, never. As much as she was enjoying her time there, being out of in the open was different, scary and she did want to go back. The way he old her hand was a soft hold and she was going to pull it out roughly but when he spoke, she was going to take that challenge just to show this sorry excuse of Spencer that she’s more than he thinks she is. “You want to show me the world around me so badly that you need to challenge me?” she spoke, her eyes looking at his, there was a slight enjoyment in the challenge in her eyes, and she wasn’t going to back down from it, not now, not ever. “We’ll see who’s right.” The blonde didn’t pull her hand, but instead waited for him to let it go. She followed him, she had to, it seemed that she couldn’t get out of that one using her veela heritage alone, she had to go through all of it, and being a challenge only made her want to go further. “How do you know? Are you some kind of hunting dog or something?” she joked but it was quite impressive that he could sense it or smell it or whatever he had done. “You did not just say stray doggo.” she laughed lightly. She didn’t expect him to be the person to use that word. She stopped laughing and looked at Phoenix. “So, you want to approach them is that it? How you’re planning on doing that without having to wrestle them?”
  2. Invite For Absent Friends

    Colette didn’t consider Laurie to be dumb, sure they were different, they took different approach to things, if Colette didn’t dedicated herself to school and everything she did she probably manage well, but she didn’t want to just manage, she wanted to excel, but Laurie was too chill. The way Laurie repeated the question, the blonde just looked at her, but remained quiet. Whatever was going on with Laurie she needed to decide either to fight it or let things stay the same, and as chill as Laurie was for some things, she was quite the fighting type when it came to others. She couldn’t help Laurie in that regard, the girl had to decide for herself what to do, but that didn’t mean she couldn’t give her opinion on the subject, even if it didn’t matter too much. “Sounds good. Even if you stay in Sydney the trip using a portkey shouldn’t be too difficult, and I’m sure mom and dad will let you stay, Gwen might pee herself a little bit though.” Colette enjoyed poling fun at her sister, especially when it came to Laurie as the younger Auclair seemed to enjoy the older Spencer’s company a little too much, and it was amusing to Colette the way her sister reacted, even if not as dramatic as Colette explained it was. She held a chuckle, but it was clear that she was ready to burst out laughing anytime soon if they didn’t change the subject. “Aside that little issue you seem to have, I assume things are well.” The conversation was still a bit hard to maintain, awkwardness and perhaps a bit of resentment were still floating but with time Colette would reach a compromise with Laurie sometime soon, it wasn’t going to be easy but they were both up to it, which shouldn’t make things too complicated, even if ‘complicated’ was Colette’s middle name.
  3. Invite For Absent Friends

    Yes, Laurie was a Spencer but Colette hardly thought the girl truly cared about the houses, much like Colette didn’t really care much, but it allowed her to predict what to expect from others, after all the Spencers were the pranksters, they enjoyed it, and did it for fun, her, well, she did it as a form of revenge or just because she was bored. If that wasn’t the case Gwen and her wouldn’t have tried the chair prank at the school, which was a success and she couldn’t contain herself, she loved hearing how great the prank was, she was very good at hiding it, but that didn’t mean she couldn’t poke a bit more, to listen to what others had to say about the amazing prank the Auclair sisters had come up with. “Maybe one day you’ll find who did it. Try poking around your house, I bet it was one of you.” Colette still tried to use the excuse that the prank had been done by a student, a real student, not someone like her or her sister that were allowed to check classes without being enrolled. But hearing the Laurie raced someone on a chair wasn’t surprising, but she would assume the girl was smarter than to try to ride a chair, guess Laurie wasn’t as smarter as Colette thought. Trying to go for small talk wasn’t a thing Colette liked, but in that moment, she was more interested in what Laurie had to say than to talk about how she was willing to give the Spencer a chance. “Do you want to fight the flow?” Colette refused to let herself go without fighting, even in her previous school, while not as rambunctious as her two closest friends were, she still managed to fight the strict system, in her own way, subtle but it worked. “Seems like you’re in a jam without knowing what to do…” The blonde looked at the Spencer and then looked at her nails, she still tried to show as if she didn’t care, but she was doing a poor job at it. “Anyway, you know I do forgive you, but … I think we can try to work things out, if you promise to write back this time.”

  5. Invite For Absent Friends

    Things still seemed pretty heave between them, it was understandable, Colette wanted to think about the situation and both Laurie and Gwen didn’t annoy her about it, if anything, it seemed that Laurie was growing, maybe the time she spent in Australia did her some good? Guess some people are allergic to strict rules. The girl entered the room, her answer was somewhat vague, and it showed how distant they had grown apart. It was a natural thing in life, people move, things change, people become more mature, it’s inevitable, eventually people stop talking, although in their case it seems that something kept pushing them to communicate a bit more, and Colette wasn’t going to throw away that chance. As Laurie replied to the prank question, Colette’s expression didn’t change. No one needed to know who was behind such thing, and hearing that it was a Spencer thing didn’t actually bother her. “Yeah probably, you’re all trying to create chaos and all that.” Colette decided to stick to her normal views of the Spencer, while her question could have been suspicious, she was trying to act as if she was still completely innocent and unaware of who might have done it. “I’m not surprised, most Spencers can’t really thinks beyond their perception, so they make everything act like them.” She watched Laurie; the same face that didn’t show a hint of being displeased with the idea that only a Spencer could come up with that. Only her and Gwen knew. “I heard someone was chair surfing, was that you?” Despite not showing, Colette’s ego might have grown a little bit with Laurie’s input, everyone seemed to think that it was a successful prank, people had fun and Colette had to admit she did too. The act of doing the prank was more exciting than the outcome, sneaking into school with Gwen, and them still not being completely into the system was a plus, meant they didn’t have to worry about using underage magic outside of school or at home, Colette hopes the sorting takes long, long enough for Gwen and her come up with something. “I noticed the Quidditch match was hard on everyone, besides the previous events that had happened before so, whoever did it might have taken that into consideration.” “Aside from all those shenanigans you Spencers are up to, you didn’t seem too convincing when you answered to me earlier. You know, I don’t bite.”

  7. Invite For Absent Friends

    Colette was waiting for Laurie to show up. She had told the other girl to stop by her house since they needed to talk, Colette couldn’t avoid Laurie forever, and, as much as she still resented the brunette, the blonde had to put the past behind her. Was it going to be easy? No, but nothing in live really is, she had to stop whining about the idea of making up and would need to step into it, freely. She was nervous and it wasn’t too hard to understand that, she had spent a lot of time wondering how that conversation would go that she had probably used all her possibilities in one hour. Perhaps what had given her the strength to text Laurie had been the current prank Gwen and her, had played in the entire school. It was great watching everyone after the chairs and even being chased by them, among other things and it was a different scenery from her previous school, if they had planned something that big she was sure Gwen and her would be out the door on the next five minutes of finding the perpetrator, but the prank also served to make some memories more vivid. Colette was never one to prank people, either because of the fear of being expelled or because there wasn’t much joy in doing it, but she did like spitting out some ideas. Maybe now she doesn’t need to worry about being expelled. As the blonde relived the moments at the school, watching the students and staff deal with the chairs, Laurie had arrived; she looked at the girl and motioned her to enter. Colette was sitting on her bed, leaving the small couch next to the window completely free for Laurie to sit if she wanted to. “So…how are you?” Colette asked. She wasn’t sure how she was going to start that conversation; she had accepted Laurie’s apology and she wasn’t sure how she could even reach a middle ground with the brunette. Should she break the ice and bring the chaotic even that had taken the school by surprise? “I heard and experienced the chair chaos at school, what happened?” Colette asked like she had no idea how such thing could have happened. It wasn’t a hard spell, but anyone who knew the Auclair sisters well enough could easily tell that they were not only the perpetrators but also the masterminds behind that plan.
  8. Soul Overture

    Gwen replied without an issue, even if she had Colette wasn’t the one to go butt into her sister’s life and her secrets, but it sounded like she and Laurie had a pretty generic conversation. Perhaps Gwen was right. Maybe Laurie was scared of hurting them again, or she was too scared to face the damaged of her own actions. “Yeah …. Maybe…” Colette wasn’t sure how to think of it, she needed to give Laurie the benefit of a doubt, but they would have to start slowly, the girl’s random behaviour didn’t suit with Colette, she liked to be in control and it could take a while for Colette to be willing to let go a bit of it. “Some people look at it differently.” Colette had a hard time letting go, opening up, it needed time or special circumstances that would allow that to happen, unfortunately right not she couldn’t see herself opening up around Laurie like she used to. She had to give it some time and allow things to take their natural course, even if she kept wondering what could be done to speed the process. Unlike Gwen, Colette was damaged, but she was over it, it was more a case of not wanting to go through it again. “You don’t have to stay away from her Gwen.” Colette looked up at her sister. She couldn’t stop Gwen from seeing or talking to Laurie, and it wasn’t like she was going to know if that was going to happen or not, besides, it wouldn’t be right to ask that. “I’ll talk to her when I can, but you don’t have to stop because of me.” Colette chuckled lightly before taking a deep breath. She was sure Gwen wouldn’t want that, and she didn’t want Gwen to be forced to do it. “Do we have a deal? Just don’t mention her and we’ll be fine.”
  9. Soul Overture

    Her sister was weird, but Colette wasn’t going to make her admit all of it since Gwen had already explained Colette the reason why Laurie was there. Colette’s reaction to her sister’s words was to laugh, but she was trying to prove a point and that could potentially prevent her from doing so because then they would be both trying not to laugh and failing miserably at it. Laurie wasn’t the type to walk on eggshells, to Colette, Gwen’s words were weird, Colette crossed her arms and looked at her sister. “What do you mean? Want to tell me what you two talked about? Or is it a deep dark secret?” most likely it wasn’t, but Colette didn’t want to poke on her sister’s life or whatever she did that didn’t want to tell. Colette wasn’t the nicest person, but calling her a demon was maybe going a bit too far, however, it sounded correct, it sounded that Laurie was too scared of Colette to talk, the way she moved, looked at her and spoke, almost like she was scared of the consequences of her actions. She should be scared, but she should have thought about them earlier. Colette was hardly going to budge on it, at least for a couple of days, maybe in a week or so she can confront Laurie, assuming the brunette wouldn’t run away from her. “I don’t like you implying I’m a demon, but I can live with it.” she shrugged it off, putting her hands on her hips. “But scared of what Gwen? It’s not like we’re going to burn her. I certainly don’t.” despite Colette’s aggressiveness she wasn’t evil, she wasn’t just going to hurt someone for her pure enjoyment, at least not physically, bullying someone verbally was more her style, mostly because it made people scared of her and that’s how she wanted it to go. “I guess we have to wait and see where this leads right?”
  10. Soul Overture

    It appeared that their situation has come to an end, at least for now, worlds were said, apologies we mentioned and were accepted, there wasn’t anything else they could do but to wait. Often time heals all wounds, not all can heal but most can. Once trust has been broken it’s a lot harder to get it back, Colette felt as Laurie has broken her trust, it wasn’t the leaving that shook her up, was the days without letters, Laurie should have known better that Colette’s reputation was just that, a mere shield to prevent people from getting too close, but when they did they stayed on the inside of it, maybe she shouldn’t have let Laurie in, maybe she should have seen it coming and she blamed herself for trusting Laurie the way she did. Maybe one day there’s a chance for Laurie to get back inside again. The smile on Laurie’s lips did bring her memories, but her face continued to look unphased, untouched, the same expression of disappointment that often appeared in the Sturt’s face. One day she might be able to smile lightly back at her old friend, but for now that’s her only reaction. Laurie’s words didn’t seem to affect Colette too much, and neither did her sister slight interference. She stood there and listened, waiting to get back to what she was doing. The whole situation did make Colette wonder, what if they have the same classes, they were on the same year, which meant they would have to see each other often, it was going to be a mess if they didn’t sort it out. Above everything, they had to be logical and not emotional. Laurie left and Gwen was just there looking at Colette talking. That had Gwen written all over the place, it was hard to believe it wasn’t. “You mean ambushing me in my own room?” Colette wanted to believe Gwen, and she sort of did, but it was a strange situation considering they were talking about it previously. “You’re telling me this was all her?” maybe it was Laurie’s idea, catch Colette in a place she couldn’t escape, to talk to her, maybe she knew how Colette would try to avoid Laurie, maybe not forever, she had made a promise to Gwen, and Colette never breaks a promise. “I don’t say this often, you know I like you, but this was just weird. It’s like she didn’t even know us at all.” Colette was still quite offended that Laurie had suggested that she would have burnt the letter, if Laurie would have sent a letter a month ago and Colette was there, she would have, but in the beginning? No, she wasn’t that cold hearted, and she had no reason to.
  11. School visits

    She listened as he spoke, apparently the girl was named Chloe, that was nice, maybe she would find her fellow Sturt around their common area, maybe even strike up a conversation? Or maybe just watch the girl before doing anything stupid, everyone there was so sensitive, absolute Drama Queens and Kings, it was impossible to even say anything until they were all claiming how hurtful it was. “I see. Thank you, Ian.” he has introduced himself, but he hopped she wasn’t mistaking his name for someone else’s. She was sure it wasn’t, but the names were a bit different, mostly their pronunciation. “Durmstrang Institute” she replied. Her lips curled up a little bit, mostly with a high sense of pride in the school, and how good it was, it didn’t matter what people said, Hogwarts had nothing on her previous school. “I assume you’ve been here since you started. You seem to know a lot about everyone…” could be that he was simply a social butterfly? She wasn’t going to comment on it, the last time she did he took it as an insult, it wasn’t, but she could see by his expression that he wasn’t too comfortable with the expression she had used. “Tallygarunga isn’t so bad I suppose, for a public school, with some budget cuts…” she looked around the area before her eyes landed on the young man. She wasn’t sure what to do know, should she go home or wait for another class? If it was like the last one she was sure she was going to fall asleep halfway through it.
  12. School visits

    Her previous school didn’t seem to have a point system, it was more about grades than it was about points, but she knew most school had points and houses and that was all so confusing to her. Grades dictated if students were good or bad, not points. “Well most schools yeah, some don’t though.” She commented. “But points don’t matter or shouldn’t matter?” she wasn’t trying to defend the Spencers and their points, she hated them, but she had to give them credit for getting such a high score, even if that wasn’t because of their grades and general classroom behaviour. She liked competition, who didn’t? But there was a time and place for it, and she doubted a classroom shouldn’t be about gaining points, it should be on getting a better score than everyone else in there. “I suppose…” Points to her were irrelevant, but she had to do whatever they did there, she had to adapt and complaining wasn’t going to help her much with that. “So, you know who they are?” Maybe he could tell her which Sturts didn’t care much for the competition, maybe she could find something similar to them? Or maybe just seem them as she saw everyone else, inferior. It was interesting, she didn’t think a Flinders would know of a Sturt, they seemed to be complete opposites, yet it seemed as if the young man got along with them. Maybe it would be something worth exploring?
  13. Invite Sticky troubles

    Colette couldn’t believe her luck, she though that the Spencers learnt their lesson but no, they didn’t learn and now she was glued to some guy she didn’t know, and she wasn’t even sure what was going on. At first her situation was complicated, she even assaulted the young man after a joke, she was annoyed at everything and no matter how many spells she used to break free she couldn’t, and the boy was weird too, he somehow didn’t seem to be too worried about it, he even seemed to be enjoying everything that was happening. He had to be the perpetrator for the other prank, the one that turned her into a glow stick, but she more she looked at him the more she doubted it could be him. It was a smart prank, it was impressive, even trying to get rid of it was hard, nah, it couldn’t be him. They had to learn to compromise with one another and it wasn’t an easy task, given Colette’s inability to do so, but it shouldn’t be for long, however, she couldn’t believe that he wanted to go to the Bushland, who in their right mind would want to go to such a filthy place? She honestly would go, if she had someone to go with her, not that she would admit it to anyone, so in a way he might have done her a favour, but once more, she wasn’t just going to let him know that, at least not for the time being. “Why are we here?” she growled lightly as walked next to him. Her anger was mostly fake, but she wasn’t going to let him know that she was okay with being there, she needed to create a reputation, one that could tell people not to mess with her. She continued to walk without protesting, unsure where he wanted to go or what he wanted to do. “You seem to come here often…” she said, not as aggressive as before, maybe being aggressive wasn’t the way to go, but she wasn’t going to do what he wanted, he would have to do what she wanted. These goddamn Spencers needed to learn that the world doesn’t revolve around them, they needed to get off their high horse and should start being more mature. She pulled, with a bit more strength than usual, at that point she didn’t care if he knew she was a halfbreed or not, as long as she could get out of there, but it didn’t seem to be the case, they just seemed to be venturing deeper and deeper into the Bushland.
  14. School visits

    She looked at him confused, was he unsure of his words or was he unsure if her comment about his house was a compliment. “It’s a compliment.” She said, looking at him and shaking her head lightly. Was he stupid? Probably not, but his explanation on why the two houses was a bit confusing, but in a way, it made sense. Colette was a serious person, but she was the one to play pranks on people if it was called for, she would do her own dirty work, at least she thought pranking was the correct tendency, given her sister was sorted in the green house. “It kinda makes sense, I guess…I only met three Spencers so far, one being my sister … so …” Gwen was debatable, dumpster baby would never be able to be a Sturt. “You know, house points prove nothing…” winning was always good, but house points were given not only on grades and behaviour in class, and if every Sturt was like her or similar, there was no way they would stop doing whatever they were doing to help someone, maybe with the exception of a couple of people, Spencers seems far more approachable, it was obvious that given the right circumstances Sturts would lose. Colette didn’t want to lose, but she knew her limitations. “Last year Spencers won because maybe they did other things Sturts didn’t…” and it was a fact that she wasn’t the most welcoming person. “It’s not good to know there’s a point system … competition is good, I love to win but it just seems pointless. Grades should be the only thing that would determine what’s the best house.” Yes, that way she was sure the Sturts would win, and the Spencers probably would stay behind. It would be a better victory than to get points by helping a kid who had fallen or giving someone a pat on the back, it was rewarding low effort from those who couldn’t even comprehend how to do simple spells.
  15. Feel The Glow

    Colette watched the Spencer’s lips and rose an eyebrow. Why was she smirking? What was so amusing that the girl had to smile? Well it surely wasn’t important; the Spencer probably would has gloated about it by now if Colette had done something. “Have you considered that they probably aren’t so bad? Just a bit more serious.” Colette mentioned with a half-smile, a victory to anyone that would know her, it was easier to get Satan accepted in Heaven than to get a smile from Colette, at least a genuine smile and not a mischievous smirk. “Some people need their time.” A lot of time was needed with Colette, but she found it easier to ger along with people she could talk with, Brooke wasn’t so bad for a prankster, but she would still prank her if it was necessary, maybe with time warn her. If it was truce for the day, that meant another day she could still be labelled as target, but she accepted Brooke’s proposal. “Alright. I’m not a student but I’ll still come to classes. I need to know what you guys are learning.” Shouldn’t she even be telling the girl that? Giving out that information was one step closer to get pranked, well, if that happened, she would have to get revenge on Brooke until the girl realized she shouldn’t prank people that could prank them back. “Just the Quidditch Pitch, the Grawler Building and the Sturts Common Room.” She replied, taking the girl's hand and getting up from her seat, before stretching her arms and looking back at Brooke, who had offered to give her a tour. “Are classes too strict here or it’s just a zoo?” she tried to make it not look like an insult, but calling the students and teachers zoo animals wasn’t the best thing to say in such situation.

Colette isn’t the nicest person, despite her apparent calm demeanor, she’s often distant and cold towards everyone at first, and slowly warm up to people, but never letting her guard down. Towards friends she’s more approachable but still enough to make the room’s temperature to drop drastically. Being distant and cold aren’t her only qualities she’s often insensitive to people’s feelings, and sometimes even enjoys the reactions she gets out of them, either anger, sadness, embarrassment, among others. The only people above such enjoyment are her closest friends (if she has any) and some of her family members.

She can be quite inflexible and stubborn, being always reluctant to listen to other people’s ideas and opinions, believing hers are always better, unless given a reason, usually a detailed explanation of pros and cons to why hers isn’t the best. But being a quick thinker and strategic her original idea can shift according to what fits her better, still ignoring everyone else’s unless there’s a proper explanation.

She is arrogant, cynical and condescending towards almost everyone. Her ego is as big as her (although that’s not such an impressive feat, considering her somewhat small stature). She has a hard time apologizing, believing her actions were the right ones at that point.

Colette has a hard time trusting people, if her cold and distant impression isn’t enough to drive people away, trust comes hard and only what she wants will be known, and when she wants, not giving anyone the benefit of a doubt, once can outcome this state after a while, and most likely under some verbal abuse, mean comments. Most of her reactions towards others, along with superiority are slightly more toned down towards her closest friends and family members.

As a friend she’s loyal and dedicated, if one can ignore the countless attacks, usually just to joke around, and sarcasm coming from her. A warmer and approachable Colette usually appears behind close doors, where she doesn’t have the Ice Queen reputation to maintain, but she will deny everything.

She’s quite dedicated and efficient on her work, organized to the point of perfection and intelligent. Her quick thinking and strategic mind help her excel in everything she puts her mind to. From school to social life, Colette always thrives to be better and more importantly, better than others.

She had a slight dislike for authority figures, hardly being impressed by them. While she follows the rules, there’s a slight disdain towards those figures, most likely because of her previous school. She has a weird and slightly morbid sense of humor, usually not laughing at jokes and keeping a constant resting bitch face, but it doesn't mean it's impossible to make her smile or even laugh. 


Colette stand roughly at 157cm, but unlike her younger sister she quite enjoys her small stature. She thinks it’s easier to move around without calling attention towards herself, also making it easier to escape situations she doesn’t want to be in. Colette is quite slim, despite the sports she practices, but her veela-heritage give her an advantage, not only she’s sturdier than she appears, she’s also faster and stronger than most people her age.

She has medium length blond hair, stranding slightly below her chin. Her hair is usually loose, but one can find her on occasion with a pony tail or a headband, keeping the hair away from her brown eyes.

Colette is known not to wear a lot of makeup, with the eventual eye makeup, mostly to avoid comments due to her veela heritage. She often looks uninterested by everyone, mostly giving a lot of eye rolls. Her most common expression is a blank stare, even in the most awkward of situations.

Clothing wise she tries to wear fashionable yet comfortable clothes. She’s a lover of skirts and dresses and can be seen wearing them. Jeans and shorts are also part of her wardrobe; however, they are less common. She avoids t-shirts, enjoying blouses and sweaters.

Now with her move to Australia one can see her wearing Spring and Autumn clothes during the Winter, leaving her Summer attires for the actual Australian Summer, or hell.

The story so far

Colette was born in Rennes, France. She’s the oldest daughter of Heide, a veela, and Arsène a pureblood. Her mother was a German archaeologist and her father a healer. She likes to believe that her parents’ meeting was purely coincidental due to their chosen careers. As a young child she thought that was awesome, but soon grew out of it. A couple of months after her one-year anniversary, her sister Gwendoline was born and for the dismay of the Auclair’s, their daughters was complete opposites, like winter and summer.

During a complicated era for halfbreeds, Colette’s father managed to find a job in Berlin, Germany, motivated by his desire to protect his wife and daughters from the events that were happening at the time. He managed to find safety, given by the German Ministry for his family. At the age of six, Colette and her family moved to Germany, the different language wasn’t a barrier, their mother had taught Colette and Gwen German since they were old enough to speak, given them a faster adaptation to the country and its language.

Thanks to the German Ministry, and the deal that their mother had made, the Auclair sisters didn’t have to register as half-breeds, being labelled as purebloods instead. Such of secret had to be protected, especially at a time like that. The sisters learned Occlumency since a young age to protect themselves from those who liked to delve into other people’s minds, and when they were old enough, they both attended the Durmstrang Institute without calling attention towards themselves, considering the school didn’t accept muggleborn and halfbreed students they would be relatively safe as long as they could keep their secret.

The years in the institute went fine, despite the rigorous rules, that Colette didn’t enjoy, she did her best and managed to fit in, unlike her sister who was mostly ostracized by everyone. The whole experience didn’t seem to change her much, but she was always happy to go home during the holidays.

Shortly after the end of the school year, their father announced that they would be moving to safer place, this time in Australia. The country offered safer and better conditions to the family. They packed their bags, expecting to adapt to their new life in Australia. The language wouldn’t be a barrier for neither of them, the new school was public and inclusive, which seemed to be the best option for the girls’ education.

Upon arriving to Australia, their main concern was to settle in, Colette on the other hand couldn’t be more excited to visit the school, maybe even assist a few classes to make sure she was all caught up.
