Default Wand Fitting


Just as you enter the shop, in between all the chaos that may or may not have been going on, is a rather open area with a measuring tape that seems to be hovering in mid air. It wiggles and flies around, ready to measure the next customer to walk into it's range. The measuring tape will eagerly measure your height, the reach of your arm, and maybe even other strange measurements to help the wandmakers find the best wand for you.

In front of the counter there is the empty space that is designated as the fitting area. Here is where wands are fitted. After being measured by the magical measuring tape, you will be assisted by a worker who will then endeavor to fit you with your perfect wand and start pulling boxes from the shelves, which stretch back impossibly far and up so high that even the tallest people have to tip their head back to see the tops.

Long sliding ladders are attached to every stretch of shelves, and the wandmakers make great use of these to reach those wands which are tucked away high up. There seems to be a filing system of sorts, some kind of method to the madness, though most of the boxes are unmarked. Is it a colour code? Or is it shape? size? smell? Something else? Well you'll never know unless you get a job here. Luckily, and out of sheer necessity, these shelves have been bespelled so that wandboxes are not in danger of flying everywhere due to errant spells cast by children wielding their new wands.

Text Cut: Wand Fitting Instructions - PLEASE READ FIRST!
Instructions

⌦ In order to receive a wand, please take the WAND QUIZ ONCE for the character who is here for a wand. Then, post your character being measured by the "magical measuring tape" ONCE in this thread. This thread is not one where you should interact with others, one post here please! It serves as our queue!

See the example post below, or look at other posts in this thread from previous terms.

Text Cut: Example Post
Jessica went into Ollivanders with more than her share of nerves, it was time for her first wand! The eleven year old made her way over to the measuring area and waited for her turn. Soon enough the measuring tape reached her and began zipping about, straightening with a snap and measuring out her height and, when she held her arms out, she watched it take a measurement of how long they were too. Fun! Did that mean her wand would be as big as her whole arm?

The girl stepped away from the measuring area and she eagerly waited for the shopkeeper to find her wand.

⌦ Please take the SORTING QUIZ first and wait to be placed in your house before taking the wand quiz! Your house effects your final wand in our quiz! This goes for current members who are re-sorting too, though you may take the quiz in advance if you know what your new house will be.

⌦ You may role play the magical measuring tape, but you may not role play for the shopkeepers. Ollivander does not work here!

⌦ After submitting the wand quiz and posting in this thread, please wait for a shop worker to assist you and your character in finding their perfect wand match. You must RP to get your wand.

⌦ Please do not stretch the wand fitting experience out too long, it should not take more than three tries at an absolute maximum to find your character's match.

If we run out of time to complete the RP with you by the end of the RP summer, we will PM or VM your wand result to you, provided you have posted in this thread and responded to our efforts to interact with you.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM Tegz and she'll try to answer your questions as quickly and efficiently as she can.

⌦ Have fun!

He was getting his wand RIGHT NOW! RIGHT NOW! And of course he was going to swish it good, and swish it at the same time as Tavie, on a one two and three - and he didn't even THINK for a second that this one wouldn't be it. Maybe that was part of why the wand, upon said swishing, emitted a silvery vapour which swirled up and around and through Tavie's stream of colours, almost as though they had practiced it, or as though both colour stream and silver vapour had been cast from the same wand, with intention, and not just from a wide eyed wave of first ever wands from two eleven year olds.

Oh it felt so NICE! He looked up at his dad. "This is it!"

"Tavie look!" he held his wand out for her to take a good look at and eagerly eyeballed hers.

Oh but he was allowed a holster and stuff! Flynn looked up at the board, eyes searching it for just the perfect -- ohhhhh they had SATIN! He kinda wanted that one. But..... he took a breath. Best not. Just in case. "Can I get a leather hip holster? Ummm...." Did they come in rainbow?

.... best not.

"In black please!"


And THEN he noticed the HANDLE EMBELLISHMENT bit, and Flynn was starry-eyed. "I can get a gemstone in the handle???"




How nice to see two wands interact like that. It would happen more often if people were fitted together more often, but generally it was a more one on one experience so it didn't quite happen this way. Still, two very good matches that Ram was pleased about. He smiled at the little girl.

"You have 12 1/3 unyielding Acacia with Jobberknoll feather core for 12 galleons." Surprising, that he'd made two Acacia wand matches this summer, given how difficult it often was to match. "Are you wanting any equipment or accessories with that?" And.... he STILL very much wanted to ask her father for his autograph.

And for the boy.... "14 3/4 inch supple willow with griffin claw core there. Lovely. 11 galleons for the wand and 4 for the holster... that's 15 so far......" The gemstone part though.... "Its a minimum of 20 galleons for the embellishment, how about I give you a brochure to take a look at, and you can take that home and have a think about what you want?" Ramiel suggested, glancing at the boy's father. He got one of the information brochures out and circled the ones that were an option with that particular wand - there were a few gemstones that would not resonate well with the griffin claw.

He passed the brochure over with the holster.


Tavie stared in amazement at the beautiful display her and Flynn's wands had just put on, her mouth slightly agape. Did everyone see that?? She looked back at her Daddy and Mr. Gray. Did they see that??? "They were dancing!" She said in a singsong voice, briefly trading wands with Flynn. Not to try and see if they'd work, but so both could inspect the others awesome new companions.

When the wandmaker spoke, Octavia processed the numbers first - 12, 1/3, and 12 - and THEN she processed the remaining details about her wand. GASP. "My mum has an Acacia wand!" Did he know? Daddy knew. They would both be so proud of this, she knew it. "What do the numbers mean for my wand?" Important question, that.

As far as accessories went... Tavie listened in on what her bestie was getting before she spoke. "I want everything he's getting, and I want my wand engraved with an amaryllis flower also please." Tavie DID really want a magical wand holster, but that didn't matter to her in the grand scheme of things, not when she was going to get her wand engraved.

....... Did he know what a amaryllis flower looked like?

Do you want a holster or anything of the sort?" Ramiel pointed up at the menu board, with all the accessories and such listed.
Freyr looked at his wand for a few seconds with astonishment before remembering awaiting clerk. He then asked for a Hebridean Black leather hip holster, a Wand Strengthening Oil, a Wand Waterproofing Rub, and a Wand Fireproofing Rub. He thought I don't want to burn or let water damage my wand, then he thought whether he was being too paranoid but then he shrugged it and ordered the holster, polish and oils. After all, one can never be too cautious. Also, he didn't want what happened to his distant cousin, Olaf, happened to himself.

Didn't need to know, didn't want to know. As far as he was concerned, he was blissfully oblivious to all of that.

Although, how Phoebe and Tavie knew that he was worried about Flynn going to Hogwarts, he'll never know. Whatever it was, it caused the man to smile cheekily and say, "Knew I could rely on the three of you." Flynn had good friends, and the fact that they were all going to Hogwarts together only made this slightly easier.

Trust Flynn to want colours and gemstones on his wand. Was he surprised? Nah. He'd probably be more surprised if he wanted his wand to be plain and simple. "Yeah, it's your wand, you can style it however you want. Maybe get a holster for it, if you wanted to be fancy." Ruby might have his skin if he spoilt the kid too much but how could he say no?

"You knooooow," he started in a dramatic fashion, "I think you'll get an even better wand. One that's got a nice colour that you can adjust with all the gemstones and ribbons you want." He knew squat about wands but the kid didn't need to know that.

And then, before he knew it, it was time. The time he dreaded but was also glad to be there for. They seemed to want to do this together, especially Tavie and Flynn, so he wasn't going to interrupt. Just stand there, looking cool and trying not to look as emotional as he felt. He wasn't gonna start blubbering. Not in here, not in front of his son, and not in front of his son's friends.

It was a relief when Scan started talking to him. But that question? Snort. "You're not asking for yourself, are you?" he asked, giving him a cheeky grin, "Dora's a scary lady and I'm not breaking up a marriage." No, thanks. Not his cup of pumpkin juice.

"I've been seeing this guy, though. A paternal type, seems to be good with kids." Which was important, you know. "But Merlin, he's so boring, he might as well be a f-" Kids. ".....freaking cucumber." And that was his sad story.

"What about you? How do you feel about all of this?" Wands, school, Beauxbatons.


”Luckily,” Scan started with a smirk, “Dora and I aren’t married.” Or at least, to their daughter’s knowledge. What Scan and Dora chose to do for purely legal reasons was their business. And he didn’t need his kid finding out she’d been denied flower girl duties ever, but especially not on wand day. She had been bothering him about it for weeks.

Scan didn’t bother hiding his surprise. Like. A dude? Grayson was seeing a guy? He had so many questions that he pocketed for later, because kids were present and all that jazz, but HUH. A guy. A BORING guy, apparently. “Dump him. He said with an easy shrug. ”You ought to date someone that could as easily light you on fire as smooch ‘ya.”

He hung up his sage wisdom hat when the kids were suddenly handed wands. Scan’s heart did a sad, profound pang, seeing his kid with her wand. It all went so fast. She was a little person with a wand. And she was leaving them.

It got even worse when the wand worked. Like she was, in fact, a little human. With her own life. Who didn’t need her Dad. He was a man. He wasn’t gonna cry. Here.

He plastered on a big, fake smile for the benefit of the kid. Two thumbs up, too. Scan addressed the wandmaker, “Whatever she wants, mate.”
