  1. There had been a feeling of impatience in the air lately when it came to one Lisa Knotley, and the longer time went on, the thicker that aura felt, almost as if one could cut it with a knife. The break was approaching and the blonde waited for classes with bated breath, needing some sort of task or activity to keep herself from going insane after a few weeks of sitting on the sidelines. Although, despite her workaholic tendencies, not all was bad. Throughout the break, her schedule did find itself quite busy - that had been Aspen Clarke's full responsibility, and something the Sturt was quite grateful for. They had spent nearly every day of the break together, for hours on end; and, on occasion, multiple times in the same day. There had even been a day where she had gone to visit Lisa at night on her request, and the Sturt figured they could pull a second round of it all to bid goodbye at their little vacations. Just like the last time, it had been quite the simple affair to sneak the girl in; unlike that time, however, the blonde had ideas unbecoming of teenagers like them - she took to alcohol to make the seconds more tolerable. It had taken a bit of convincing, but she eventually got Aspen to agree to that little activity (much to Lisa's surprise). The conversation flew back and forth easily during the first few swigs they shared from one of the few bottles she had found over the past year laying around the school premises. However, as time went on and a potent buzz solidified in each of the girls, things turned south and the room grew distinctly quiet, devoid of laughter and amusing conversations. They sat against the headrest of Lisa's bed, dressed as if ready to go to sleep, leaning against each other in the somewhat uncomfortable silence. Not because of one another's presence or proximity, but because of what was going through their minds. At some point, the Sturt had handed the beverage to Aspen; to occupy her now idle hand, she pulled her friend's leg up to a bent position gently, if a bit clumsily, and found herself resting that hand on the top of her thigh, with a thumb running back and forth within its range. Despite her eyes being cast down towards the active finger, her gaze was anything but focused as the thoughts in her mind threatened to suffocate her at the drop of a hat. "...This is the part where I tell you to stay away, I think..." She muttered, breaking the silence, gaze stuck to the perpetually moving finger. Despite her words, no part of her body made a move to get away and escape the personal bubble of the friend she had grown so fond of. "I've come to really care about you, so... I don't want to end up screwing you over too at some point." It was remarkable how easily Aspen had broken through every barrier Lisa had so carefully built for a little over two years; and in a way she had betrayed the Bourke already by her very inaction at nipping the friendship in the bud the moment she noticed it was blossoming. She had wanted to feel close to someone again, she realized, but ultimately she knew she had been setting both up for failure and dooming the Bourke to the pain Lisa always seemed to inevitably cause. "That stuff you heard about me... From the Dueling Club. That's barely scratching the surface..." Her phrases dragged on as the alcohol took effect. She was conscious of the fact she was talking too much, but lacked the concern over what her words could end up doing to herself; the care for her friend dominated. "You already know I'm a lousy friend. I'm also, let's see... Lousy daughter, lousy sister, lousy girlfriend... S'just pick your poison at this point, really." She let out a deep exhalation. If only she knew how to stop herself. "I guess... I just don't want you to be next on the list." As her speech slowed to a halt, she decided to reach over with her free hand to take the bottle out of Aspen's hands, her head inadvertently pressing harder against the Bourke's with the leaning before she managed to return to her previous position; she then took a rather large swig in a vain attempt to forget her plights.
  2. It's Aspen's birthday, go give her a hug.
  3. The day for MJ’s birthday was there, Aspen quickly got out of bed to make everyone some breakfast. Today was all about MJ and all her favorite things, she wanted to be able to give MJ the best birthday possible; Aspen wasn’t sure if next year she would be able to be around her sister, so she wanted to give her the best she could. Previously Aspen had gotten her sister a notebook, she hoped MJ would love it and she also had something that Lisa had given her for MJ. Before making breakfast, Aspen made sure to make every chore in the house, now that she was seventeen it was easier to make everything with magic, cleaning, laundry, waking out the dog, making sure the litter box was clean, everything in the house was going to be spotless for when MJ wakes up she doesn’t even have to do anything. When the chores were done it was time for breakfast, the only thing that Aspen didn’t use magic to do, she did it like she always has, manually. In the meantime she also began making the cake, this with a slight help of magic, to speed things along and, it could bake while Aspen gives her sister the breakfast in bed, perhaps later, they could decorate together. As tradition dictates, Aspen took MJ’s breakfast to their room, but before waking up her sister, Aspen placed both her present and Lisa’s present next to the younger girl’s head, so that she could see it first. The older sibling placed the breakfast tray on the table and softly tried to wake up her sister. “Mary...” Aspen said before kissing her sister’s forehead. “...time to wake up Sleeping Beauty.” She joked lightly at her sister.
  4. Sneaking Aspen into the Sturt Common Area (and Lisa's room, ultimately) had been a fairly simple affair, gone through without a hitch. Smack dab in the middle of the break, the pair managed to move throughout the school mostly unnoticed during the day; as they hung out and spend time by themselves, everyone had forgotten Aspen was present, let alone not supposed to be there. When it came to dinner time, so not to raise suspicion, Lisa headed out on her own to retrieve food. Given that she was an athlete, nobody said a word pertaining her taking a large quantity of nourishment along with her. They ate together in the privacy of the Sturt dormitory room as the sun set, but that only reminded her that the main event had yet to be set in motion. "So." She spoke up. By then she had moved to sit on her bed after changing to her sleeping clothes, back pressed against the headrest while she glanced over at her friend. "You said something about truth or dare, right? I like my challenges and all, but I feel like I have to place some ground rules for both our sakes. When it comes to dares, while I like a good challenge, let's not make it so we have to do things either of us can get kicked out of Captaincy for, alright?" Which, unfortunately, were a great deal of things she found fun. But, they had to work with with what they got, or else there would be a hefty price to pay. "So, within the confines of this room, without causing any damage we can't get rid of." She let Aspen get any additional rule in before speaking up again. "If that sounds fair to you, you can start because I'm picking dare." Of course she was. 'Truth' was not something she was awfully inclined to pick as a default. There were things that she just didn't want to talk about, and she wanted to honor the premise of the game and not lie.
  5. For over a year at that point, Lisa Knotley had gained the reputation of being a terrible friend (and person in general). Placing herself above others, seeing everyone else as expendable and unimportant, along with a myriad of rumors made up over time about things she hadn't actually done. That morning, it was no different - she wasn't helping her own case at all with the fact she was yet to wish a happy birthday to the girl she was walking with. She had agreed on hanging out, finding it odd that Aspen wanted to spend such a substantial amount of time with her of all people in that day rather than with loved ones, but ultimately, who was she to say no? The break had started that same day and she had nothing better to do. Perhaps it was for the best that the fact school was over usually only hit her in full swing the Monday after it happened, or else that day would have had her in a bit of a foul mood. Instead, she sought to amuse herself, and make things better in the end for her friend. She hadn't said a thing because she deliberately wanted Aspen to think she had forgotten - it would make the payoff all the sweeter. "Say, do you mind if we go to a Quidditch gear shop? I've been saving up for some gloves for a little while now, and I think it's time I got them. Give them a test drive during vacations and all, you know?" It was unfortunate that she couldn't get a gloves and shin guards combo for the girl in question, but the material she wanted was quite expensive. Besides, she could always get the rest of the equipment for Christmas if it came down to it. "It should be fairly quick. I know what I'm looking for." It cost an arm and a leg, but it was a good investment. The hour was closing in on lunch time as they walked under the weakened sunlight. She didn't know if Aspen had to leave or if she would be available to sit down and eat a meal prior to ditching Lisa, and so she needed to acquire the gift she wanted as soon as possible. She was quite surprised with herself at being able to hold the charade for that long; truth be told, she was practically giddy to see Aspen's reaction at getting a much needed gear upgrade. The extra item she had previously prepared for the Bourke's younger sister would certainly be a nice bonus, too.
  6. It had been a good day for Aspen which meant that she was in a rather cheery mood. Earlier that day she had Divination, it wasn't one of her favorite classes but it was something that was familiar to her regardless and what she had seen in that class left her quite happy, or at least as happy as a person could be after being hit with a ball and almost falling off the broom during Quidditch practice which meant she had to be sent to the nurse's office and then home in case of a possible injury, not much could make Aspen take a day off from practice but that was sort of a special day. Upon arriving home Aspen had to do her normal chores, clean, do laundry, help Justice with his homework and cook dinner at the same time as their father rested, again he had to work the graveyard shift, it was tiring and he hardly spent time with his kids, but he had to do whatever it was necessary to get some income, Aspen didn't like her father walking around at night, it was dangerous, especially since he couldn't defend himself using magic if something bad were to happen, and even if he did had the company of some ghosts it wasn't like he could hear them or talk to them, which meant he had to go through the night mostly alone. Once dinner was over her father left for work the kids were left to do whatever they usually did and what Aspen usually does is sitting on her bed while talking to her sister MJ, only this time Aspen was more interested in reading the quill book. "You got to be shitting me..." she commented. "I'm so going to skin you alive." she continued with anger in her voice until she shut the quill book. "This shit is stupid."

Those who try and have the patience to break through her somewhat cold exterior can find a good and somewhat dedicated friend in her who would be willing to help. Volatile and unpredictable the caters to her whims before catering to the whims of others, unless there’s some sort of bond between her and someone else.

She often gets along with everyone being able to easily adapt to the situation if needed. She can be petty and arrogant to those she dislikes. She can be volatile and unpredictable which might cause her to lash out at people in a moment of rage. Not the bravest person unless it’s a friend.

The rest of her family, even if they weren’t the ones doing the abuse enabled it which is why she prefers to cut ties with all of them. She likes to flirt but will never be the one starting it.

She’s the eldest of four siblings. Before attending to Tally she attended to a muggle school. She has slight anger-management issues which aren’t exactly a problem whenever her sister MJ is around, but without MJ Aspen becomes prone to violence until a sensory overload takes control of her. Aside from her issues she’s a sweet person who tries not to hurt other people’s feelings, she’s an extrovert and she loves being surrounded by people. Not exactly stupid she likes to use logic but instead of following the logical path she always ends up taking the one her instinct tells her to. She’s paranoid and over-protective of her younger siblings ever since her youngest sister disappeared. Flirt with her and she’ll punch you in the throat like a savage.

She was a Tally student in the Flinder’s house and she was never remarkable and was average in everything she did. She is now a VMU student and lives in a shared apartment some other students. She was physically and emotionally abused by her mother and those scars haven’t healed. Apparently, a self-assured person she has many doubts after a choice and keeps second guessing herself. She suffers from anxiety which prevents her from being true against most people, and sometimes even to friends. She sees herself as a nuisance in other people’s lives just like her mother used to call her. She’s emotionally distant and it needs a lot of patience and years to break through. She isn’t the bravest person and dislikes confrontation, especially when people yell directly at her. She likes to appear thought but she will cry afterward. Alone she is somewhat different, she’s more open, especially to Jester, her pet snake likes to dance and do silly things. Every word she speaks and hears still haunt her, but not as much when she’s in a crowd, she always doubts people and their words causing her to withdraw even more from everyone, even from those who care for her.

She lives with her mother, a full fae, two dogs and two twin ghosts that love playing around the house and scaring people. She's very much like a trickster and likes to play with people. She isn't the worst of friends, but you may find her one day sitting on your couch and eating your food if you're good friends with her. She can and will be inconvenient, even if it's not on purpose she should be more careful with what she says. She often gives unsolicited advice but doesn't bother about the outcome as it isn't something that affects her directly. I am always open to suggestions so feel free to post here or DM me.
  8. Humiliation was not a feeling Lisa was particularly fond of, but it was something she had to subject herself to for the greater good of the interschool team. It wasn't the first time she had gone through such a thing; in fact, from the moment she took up the mantle of Captain of both teams she was a part of, such events seemed to stack up pretty quickly, by coincidence and otherwise. That afternoon was doomed to be one of them. But, at least, she wouldn't be caught dead complaining about her responsibilities, opting to face them head on instead. She had requested a fellow Captain of another team, as well as a Chaser under her in the interschool team - Aspen Clarke - to meet up with her at The Drunken Roo a little while after their regular training session ended. There was a big problem Lisa was contending with that could use the advice of an upperclassman as to how to handle it - she couldn't raise the morale of either of her teams. A portion of the people working with her complained the training sessions she put together were too harsh, and, unfortunately, few seemed as focused on playing and winning as she was. A thorn on her side, certainly, and she didn't plan to let up; if they had a problem, they could go play for another team. What she could do, however, was motivate them to give their best somehow. And that would be where Aspen would come in. Lisa hadn't waited to walk together to the bar (which was fortunately old enough to visit). She had already sat down at a booth, crossed her legs under the table and ordered a simple watermelon slush, which she lightly sipped from the straw caught between her lips. Despite how sore her body was from two back-to-back training sessions that day (Sturt, and Interschool teams), her composure didn't seem affected at all by it as she still exuded an aura of superiority without much issue. She glanced out the window to distract herself as she waited for the senior Bourke, trying not to contend with thoughts that would inevitably make her frustrated and exacerbate the humiliation she was about to endure.
  9. According to Olivia, there was some sort of fan of his life's work in Tallygarunga that she'd like him to meet. He wasn't sure why she wanted to give that girl such a kindness - anyone wanting to go pro would pay attention to the rosters and games of the league and national team - but nonetheless Jamie agreed to it. It wasn't one of those crazed fans that his management was so fond of spawning, from what he could gather; he'd take a respite like that over some lame photo op or autograph signing any day. Plus, it was Sunday. There was no training to be had. He stood in his friend's office in Tallygarunga, waiting for the girl to be brought in. He was told beforehand that he could help himself to some candy resting within one of the top drawers; it took him a couple tries to find the right one, and once he did, he took out a small wrapped candy. Leaning on his friend's desk and looking out the window, he nimbly discarded the wrapping of the candy and placed it in the nearby trash bin. "Been a while since I've tried this..." He muttered to himself as he eyed the piece of candy. Not hearing the door nearby opening, he flicked the candy into the air, aiming his head under it to try and catch it with his mouth; it hit him square on the forehead instead. As the candy slid down his face he managed to catch it, using the other hand to rub the little sore spot the projectile had left on his skin. "Ow..." He could almost hear his sister pointing and laughing at him for that little mishap.
  10. It had been a few years since her sister Vivian disappeared and when it was nearing the day of her sister’s disappearance Aspen was not only impatient she was mostly angry, she was angry at everything and everyone, feeling an overwhelming feeling of sadness whenever she thought of her sister, the feeling of ignorance on the subject didn’t make things any easier, was Vivian live or not? If she is still alive, is she suffering? All this time in the dark about her sister situation has been eating Aspen alive, the feeling of helplessness always by herself whenever she thought of Vivian, which was constantly. Aspen walked to the graveyard as she always did when she needed some advice, being the eldest meant she always needed to have the answer for everything. She found her mother’s grave and sat in front of it. Aspen looked at the gravestone for a few minutes, she wasn’t thinking anything she was just there looking at it. She was sure if their mother was still alive none of that would have happened, they would all be safe. “Do you think she’s still alive?” she asked her mother, who she was sure wasn’t going to answer her back, somehow, she wished it was possible. Aspen had very little memories of her mother, she was still young when she passed away but that didn’t mean all the memories were lost to her. “I don’t know what to do? I'm graduating this year and should I put my life on hold? I don't want the same to happen to Mary or Justice.”
