Welcome to Tallygarunga, an original roleplay set in the Harry Potter universe. Set in present-day Australia, tensions are high between the Ministry of Magic and the only Ministry-run wizarding school in the country. Become like the other snooty private schools? Not a chance.

Originally established in August 2006, Tallygarunga prides itself on an inclusive and active community. Once part of the Tally family, always part of the Tally family. Whether you're here for the first time, the thousandth time, or returning after a long time---welcome home.

Jiwon wore a pair of headphones to drown out the noise that came with the usual hubbub of mealtime. There wasn't anything playing, but it at least dimmed down some of the noise around him. He disliked all the noise that came with being surrounded by so many idiots. This would've been ten times worse if he had been drinking the night before and had a hangover, but he was completely sober for this stupid dinner. Jiwon just wasn't interested in entertaining any of this and wanted to go back to the quiet of his dorm room, since he wasn't allowed to go home when no one was there. The boy felt like he was on edge and anything could tip him over easily. Some people were back on his case about him being behind in classes again, but it wasn't even as though he wasn't trying. Some people were never happy.  "Is there a reason why you need to borrow my language notes, again?" Jiwon felt the light tap on his shoulder and looked up as he pulled his headphones to the side. He didn't even bother to give Kairi any sort of greeting since he was basically just using him.

Kairi entered the Great Hall and approached Jiwon with the notes that he had promised to give him. He lightly tapped him on the shoulder. It was an innocent gesture, but he knew that some people didn't enjoy being touched and he barely knew anything about the other guy, so couldn't tell if this had been a bad move or not. One thing was for sure, he didn't like the look that Jiwon gave him. Yeah, yeah, he didn't expect him to be all bright and smiley, Kairi had tutored enough people to realise that you couldn't be happy all the time. "Whatever, thanks." Jiwon seemed to mumble the words half-heartedly. Most normal people would probably have just left it there, especially since he hadn't been given any sort of explanation from the other boy, just a whatever. Obviously, Kairi should have noted that the headphone was meant to be a sign that he should probably go away, but he didn't. Of course, hewasn't known to be the best at reading social cues, but even he'd noticed how much Jiwon missed class and he couldn't just leave it without saying something out of concern. "You know, if you're sick again, then maybe you should see a doctor or something." He had noticed in the past couple of weeks that the other boy had been kind of peaky and that he hadn't been turning up for many of his classes, again. "If I wanted your advice, I'd have asked already, or I'd have gone to my brother. I just wanted your notes, not a lecture!" Jiwon pulled the headphones clean off his head and stood up, making Kairi feel rather small, especially since this all started because he had given the other boy advice that seemed to be common sense. He already knew all too well that hiding your illnesses could be made worse in the long run.

Jiwon had had enough of people faking concern and offering up useless advice when he didn't need it. "It's only common sense that if you're sick that you would see someone that could help!" He blinked, admittedly he hadn't expected anyone to stand up to him, especially not someone as weak and spineless as Kairi Taylor-Hashimoto or whatever his god awful name was. Being new to the school, he would have thought that he would show some more respect to others, this wasn't the way to make friends and made Jiwon think that the other Sturt was a complete and utter idiot with no common sense. The smug look on his face drove him up the bloody wall, so he picked up a piece of pudding and threw it at Kairi just to shut him up. It was an easy task since he had one of those faces that he would like to punch, especially when you thought about the fact that he had the nerve to point out something that Jiwon was all too aware of, so he had to pay. He didn't even bat an eye when he dodged a punch from the dick head. Who would even try to do that? Only someone that knows what they did wrong and needed to be beaten to the ground. That had been what his bullies had told him the past, and he didn't know anything else. "You should have minded your own business, shouldn't you?!" Jiwon tried lashing out at Kairi as someone approached, but he didn't care about it at all. You could be sure that he would be complaining about this disgrace later on.
