  21. Celestine Gaunt

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    She never had a single thought about how would be like going to school. Her aunt made sure Celestine did not think about it, telling her over and over again she will never follow the school of witchcraft and wizardry. "Nonsense! Immediately stop thinking about it and get your rubbish dreams of going to that hideous school out of your head once and for all ". Celestina heard those words from dawn till dusk, starting to truly believe she'll never get her letter and she will spend her entire life in London with an old bitter woman. She was woken up, in the middle of the night, by a strange sound outside. Maybe it's nothing, she thought and perched on the bed in hope of falling asleep again. "Hooo... hoo..." she was now standing beside her bed as she heard that low rumbling in front of the house. It would have been a perfect moment, if Celestine had not closed the window before going to bed and the old and loopy owl delivering her letter hadn't flown straight into the window. But there was no time about day-dreaming; she exit quietly in the front yard and saw the long-awaited letter in hear near. Later, she said to herself, while she ran and kneeled next to the that little winged creature. "There, there, you will fine." Celestina was comforting the owl before she had started to cry. It were the first tears of happiness and joy.

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    Dark eyes stared at the toast rack. What a pointless invention. Who wanted lukewarm, chewy toast? And why did they feel the need to foist it upon every Bed and Breakfast occupant for the rest of all time. Arrow managed a smile when the B&B owner - Miss Amy - unloaded four pieces of toast into the rack, and pulled a face as soon as her back was turned. Across the small square table, Saoirse smirked at him. “It’s just crunchy bread, Sparrow, it won’t kill ya.” Ten years his senior, there was a spark of mischief in her gaze as she flicked her wand beneath the table, nudging both butter and jam toward the shortly-turning-eleven-year-old. “Saoirse!” He admonished her with a hiss, although when she burst out laughing at the sudden authority in his young face, he found himself giggling too. Magic was second nature to Saoirse, but it was only half of the world that Arrow found himself straddling. During the week, he was muggle as muggle could be. On the weekends, however - between his elder sister’s mischief and his father’s eccentricity, he had seen things his schoolfriends could only dream of. Speaking of which... Tap. Tap tap. Tap tap tap. The open window brought a gentle sea breeze into the B&B. It had also brought a furtive-looking barn owl with a sealed letter in its beak. Arrow had to hold his mouth shut to quiet the squawk which threatened to escape him as he dashed to the window and plucked the letter from the bird’s beak. “Shoo! Shoo! You’re not supposed to be here until tomorrow!” It wasn’t even his birthday yet, and if Miss Amy saw the owl, there was no telling how she’d react. Stuffing the letter under his shirt, Arrow ushered the bird away and slammed the window behind it, sending splinters of paint skittering onto the sill. “Is everything alright, dearies?” He could hear the elderly Miss Amy edging slowly back toward the breakfast room. “Yes thanks, we were just a bit-.” Arrow locked eyes with Saoirse - who was making no effort to hide her cackling - and then had to stifle his own laughter. “Just a bit cold, Miss Amy! I closed the window! Saoirse, ssshhh!!” Only once he was certain that Miss Amy was well out of earshot did he dare to produce the letter, the warmest grin beginning somewhere deep in his stomach until it spread to his arms and legs and finally his face. Arrow was going to Hogwarts.
  23. Arrow Kinsella

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Arrow Kinsella Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes Character Face: Hiro Mizushima Character Masterlist Entry: - Mizushima, Hiro - Arrow Kinsella ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Arrow spends the majority of his time living as a muggle at home with his mother Rina in a quiet suburban home in Surrey. It's a bit too quiet, if you'd ask him. Everything is in its proper place in Rina's house, and Arrow knows better than to disturb it - though now and again he moves the placemats and salt shakers half an inch to the left just to see if his mother notices. (She doesn't - he gets bold enough to move them again, and inevitably gets in trouble for it.) Still, he loves his mother very much - he just wishes she would loosen up a little. Instead, he lives for the weekends he spends travelling with his father Enda and older half-sister Saoirse - somehow the oft-changing hostelries up and down the UK feel more like home than the house in which he spends his weekdays. Enda Kinsella is a wizard of small renowned, although his eccentric pursuit of inventive and experimental spells leaves the three somewhat cut off from the rest of wizarding society - just how Enda likes it, as the inventor of the self-agitating spice rack and cantankerous cobblestones. Though Saoirse and Arrow often complain amongst themselves about their father's silly antics and inventions, the three of them are very close - much closer than Arrow has ever been to his mother - which is part of why he is so excited to receive his Hogwarts letter and to finally be given an invitation to the word in which he feels he belongs. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: None. 100 words (minimum) on personality: Arrow is a curious boy, but he somehow picked up from his father the misguided advice that it is quicker to make a mistake and learn from it than it is to bide his time and consider a matter from all sides. As such, Arrow can be reckless and impulsive, but overall he is a kind-hearted boy with a quick wit and quicker grin. Growing up a sort-of only child - given the 10-year age gap between himself and Saoirse - he is always out to make new friends, and his optimistic nature is such that he is able to turn even the most ordinary day into an adventure.

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    With the odd letter in hand, Yvette remembered the day it came, and remembered the week following - where the house felt a little.. off. All those weird things happening.. was her. It wasn't this old village house, it was her. She caused everything. She had magic? Who would've thought? Also - she thought it wasn't real. Magic. What even was that? What could she do? What couldn't she do, actually? A wand didn't sound bad - if she would ever get any, or a flying broom, is that just a made up thing? Was this even anything special, receiving a letter to this.. school. Hogwarts, she thought again, what a weird name. She was about to tell all her friends at school, that she wouldn't be going to the same school they would be, but that man.. from the Ministry, or something, said that she couldn't say anything. What fun was that? She had magic and couldn't show or talk about it to anyone.. What a bummer. That man, though.. Was the weirdest person that she had ever seen. Well, he was nice and all, but he was.. Well, maybe he wasn’t weird after all. He was old, wrinkles here and there, long coat, hat.. Yvette tapped the Hogwarts letter on her palm, remembering how the man arrived a day after Mum and Dad sent out a reply to this letter that she was holding. Asking for an explanation, and while the man gave it to them - about how magic was real, Yvette was a witch, how her birth parents must be magical as well, and that this school with the funny name is real. It was all the way in Scotland - Yvette had no clue how far it was in real life - and that Yvette should decide if she wanted to go. Why did she have to decide? Couldn't Mum and Dad decide for her, like everything else? The girl shook her head and got up from her bed, and opened her bedroom door. Both her parents and her grandparents were there, eyes straight to her, and then the letter she was holding. "If I go, you'll have to lie to people, you know." She closed the door behind her, and sat on the floor next to her grandpa's chair, "You all have to lie, you know." The eleven year old then looked up at her Mum, who gave her a smile, "We know, darling. So you should go if you want to." The man didn't say that - that man from the Ministry. That man said that even though she can decide, he would like her to go, to control her magic. Silence filled the room once more, and Yvette pursed her lips, thinking. "Fine," she looked at all of them, "But all of you better come with me to get all these.. stuff." She pulled out a list of things to buy and gave it to her Dad, "And I don't know what money that is, never heard of it." Her grandpa then put his hand on her head, and patted it a couple of times, "Of course, we'll come with you. And we'll figure out the money." Yvette looked up at him and smiled a little, then nodded a couple of times. "Okay." She stood up again, gave her letter to her Mum, I'm a witch now, then.

  26. Celestine Gaunt

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Celestine Gaunt Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes, I did! Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes, I will! Character Face: Alexandra Burimova Character Masterlist Entry: Burimova, Alexandra - Celestina Gaunt ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Theodore II Gaunt and Adelaide Gaunt (nee Bloodworth) both came from sacred families, with at least nine consecutive generations of pure-blood. In order to ensure the continuity of their lineage, a marriage was arranged for them at an early aged. Without any love between them, but only the aim of produce an heir to carry on their lineage, the family hoped for years to give birth to a healthy boy. As the years passed, the rift between them has start to grown more and made them alienated and cold-hearted. In one spring, Adelaide gave birth to twins: a boy and a girl. For almost two years the family seemed to gain a sort of happiness around them, until a mysterious event happened. Her mother never gave her a hug or a good night kiss; she turned mad and isolated herself from everybody else, including from her daughter. Theodore became bitter and was almost all the time left from home. Eventually, the Gaunt family decide to send her away to London, to live with her aunt, at the age of 8. Her aunt, Eytelia, was an old woman, with no interest in raising a child. She was quiet, dark and very strict, and she enjoyed every moment in which she could punish Celestina, though there were no reasons to make it. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: N/A 100 words (minimum) on personality: Celestine is usually a girl of no many words, tending to avoid direct contact with others. She's quite shy and secluded, looking in general for no trouble. She's been thought to keep her head down, not to debate the orders and seek no answers at her curios questions. In years the educated herself to be a solitary person and find joy in books. Because she could have been punished if dared to ask something, she had managed to learn how to provide everything she needed for herself, including love. Being estranged from parental love, especially from her mother's, she barely knew how to hug, smile or hold a hand of a dear one. The only moments of communication were with her own thoughts, and it was pretty fine for her, albeit deep down her heart was desperate to see a nice human face around her.
  27. Yvette Lee

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Yvette Lee Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes Character Face: Song Hye Kyo Character Masterlist Entry: Song, Hye Kyo - Yvette Lee ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Jacob Lee met Amelia Ainsworth on his trip to Bilbury - a love at first sight for Jacob, a love that grew for a couple of years after Jacob decided to move from London and leave his comfortable life behind for Amelia. Both took care of Amelia's parents' little and cozy tea house in the little village of Bilbury. Both of them loved chatting to the tourists that stopped by, getting to know their adventures and their reasons to visit the village. They've seen, met, and entertained plenty of babies, toddlers, and children of any ages, and decided that they wanted one of their own when the business had proven to be as stable as it was when Amelia's parents were in charge. But this goal had proven to be one of their biggest challenges, and while both said that they would never gave up in trying to have a baby, Amelia quietly did. Instead, she looked for other options, and found that adopting was the best option they had. Jacob was hesitant, but he didn't want to pressure her anymore, so he agreed. As they looked for information, Jacob tried to contact his parents - which didn't want anything else to do with him after he upped and left a law career that they wanted him to have. A year later, they adopted Yvette from a little orphanage that was quite a distance from where they lived. Unbeknownst to them, Yvette had magical powers. As she grew older, every time she laughed, a tea cup would hop out of its place, or a spoon would move from one side to another. While it was confusing, the magic Yvette possessed had entertained her parents and her grandparents, thinking that it was just the old house that had been there for centuries - and not her, until the letter from Hogwarts came. All four of them were confused, wondered if this was a prank, and wrote back to the sender. Maybe they could get an answer. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: None. 100 words (minimum) on personality: Yvette thrives in calm, but busy environment, as she has lived all her life in a tea house and would struck conversation with many different people that had visited. She loved making new friends, or just getting to know someone and listening to their holiday plans, where they are from, and learning the many different spots in the world. She picked up some simple phrases in different languages, perks of the job - that she didn't actually have. Aside of chatting with strangers, Yvette could stay in her own little bubble when she has a book in her hands. While she loved to talk to anyone about anything small, she could be quite reserved and would keep things to herself when it was important to do so. She spoke her mind - not afraid of consequences, because well, sometimes there wasn't any. Being an only child had made her quite spoiled, and selfish sometimes, so while she did really well in school, Yvette never really had someone that she could click with, or could change her selfish self.
