staffed shop Counter and Wand Fittings



Ollivanders is a long and narrow shop, with impossibly tall and crooked shelves making up the majority of its space, but this is as far as the Wizarding public are permitted to go unaccompanied. Here is the counter, a thick, rustic slab of darkest mahogany, worn smooth from years of use. On top of the counter sits an old fashioned brass cash register which seems to have a mind of its own. It toots and whistles and lets off steam as purchases are entered into it and the drawer pops out jauntily to receive payment, and if anyone tries to get into it, an obnoxious caterwauling charm will go off. Best not to try, it knows how to defend itself.

On the wall next to the counter there is an inventory board, which lists every product sold and service provided at Ollivanders aside from the wands themselves. If you wish to buy a holster, or any polishes or wand care products, this is where you should look. The products themselves are displayed on the racks and in baskets attached to one side of the counter.

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 invited up here by a worker who will then endeavor to fit you with your perfect wand.

Of course if you are here for repairs or inquiries, you'll be able to bypass the line that tends to form over the Summer months, and come to the far end of the counter underneath the sign that, appropriately enough, says 'inquiries and repairs'. Here you can see about your damaged wand being fixed, or find out about customizing your wand if you are the sort who likes things a little fancier. Engraving prices are listed on the inventory board.

The shelves with wands on them 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.

OOC: Remember to post in the "Magical Measuring Area" FIRST if you are here to receive a wand. If you are lucky we will move your post there, but its YOUR responsibility to post there first, and not post in this thread until your character is addressed. 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. After all the wandmakers are professionals, and we have a LOT of people to get through. Your character will be sent away after three attempts, so if you want a wand, be sure to allow a match to happen! If you aren't getting a wand fitted, please be sure to make that clear in your post! And please keep chatting here to a minimum. There are other places for talking to your friends, such as the entrance way. Thank you! Note: Parent charries may accompany their children to get their first wands and post in this thread, but if you aren't interacting with the shopkeeper we'd appreciate you to move your RPing elsewhere.

And he certainly gave the slightest indication that he heard her when she said she would be back.

But when she was, Brody reached out to close his fingers over the wand. This one was different... it felt as though it were made for his hand, it felt so comfortable and fit perfectly. Even before he waved it, he felt with all his mind that this was the wand for him.

The wave produced a burst of bright green confetti which first shot into the air and then began falling. A host of the pieces stuck to his curly hair. Some may have even been showered on the woman tending to him and nearby customers.

"I think this is the one.''
Fiona was admittedly struggling to deal with this child's attitude. She liked to think she could find the good in everyone but in this case, she was having some trouble. Still, she kept calm and cool and smiled when it came to wand related things because really, this was her passion, her job, and he'd be sorted soon. Thank Merlin.

...Boy did she feel guilty thinking such things.

The confetti the wand produced did indeed land in her hair and on her clothes and the whole thing felt quite festive. Lucky green was a good color for her. The red head smiled as she brushed some off her shoulders, in complete agreement with the young wizard. "I think so, too." Congratulations to him.

"What you've got there is a 10 1/2 inch springy Chestnut wand with Phoenix Feather core, a rare core to match with." It was an impressive wand of good size and promising ability. "Chestnut wands favor those who are adept at outdoor magical activities like those relating to herbology, magical creatures, or flying. It is also a wand wood which tends to draw power from the core with which it is matched, magnifying the characteristics. In this case, phoenix feather cores are capable of a wide range of magic, though it'll take time and patience for the wand to reveal this to you. Phoenixes are also extremely independent, so the wand won't be easily tamed. Something tells me you're well matched, you and this wand." Independent, maybe a bit stubborn, but with hidden talents waiting to be uncovered.

"Will you be purchasing anything else today?"

The boy looked from the wand he was awkwardly holding up to Miss Fiona. “I thought a wand would be like the ones magicians uses, you know black, with a little white tip. Or at least getting one, I'd just pick one up off the shelf. You know, like normal stores. Why do you have to match them? Are they like shoes?” His poor little brain was having a hard time comprehending all of this magic stuff.

Furrowing his brow, he took the wand, holding it the same way as the other. This one did feel different in his had. It was... tingley. “Uh, how do you hold one of these?” he asked giving it a little jab, causing a little stream of water to exit the tip of the wand. “Cool!”
"Precisely." The red head nodded, smiling.

Magicians' wands? Fiona might've looked a bit puzzled by this, but she didn't comment on it. As for matching like you did shoes, she let out a soft laugh. "The wand chooses the wizard, so a wand that does not connect with you won't feel right, and might not work for you as well as it would with someone that it does shares a connection with. It's important to find a wand for every witch and wizard that will allow them to flourish and accomplish all they're capable of." It was important work.

"You're holding it very well, actu--oh!" The shopkeeper's assistant moved out of the way of the stream of water, amused and pleased with the display of magic. "That was very well done." And would've served her well had she been thirsty in the moment.

"That wand seems to work well for you." And it was interesting that it had produced water given the wood had a connection to fire. She liked the duality of it. "You've got yourself a 13 3/4 inch Whippy Holly wand with Clabbert Tooth core. Holly wands are said to be lucky and if you're ever caught in a thunder storm, know that you'll be protected from those pesky lightning strikes." Really, it was true! "It is also a wand that will be extremely useful in all of your magical creature endeavors. It'll help you gain the respect of creatures you come into contact with, so that's something to keep in mind."

"Would you like any accessories to go with your wand?"

And then the smile from her and he nodded, slightly shocked. Wait. So the fire was a GOOD thing?????? Also, he TOTALLY approved of the idea about not backing down from challenges. It definitely was something that gave him HIGH hopes in regards to the future and his schooling at Hogwarts. "Huh, interesting. That sounds really cool though." Ethan nodded and glanced back at his father, pleased that he had wand match.

"Nope, I think that's all. Unless there's something else you think I need to get?" He had no idea what was the norm for first years, after all.
It was really cool, yes. Any wand that could assist a budding witch or wizard in the confidence department was an important one in her book.

"The only thing I might suggest is a holster, though you might already have one of those?" Some families passed them down or bought them as gifts. It really just depended on the customer. She calculated the total of the wand without one and pushed it towards him, just in case that made the difference. Sometimes it did.

With a lifted brow, Florian watched the exchange between the much older male and vastly younger girl, and the measuring tape... a slight tilt to his head. They looked a bit familiar to him, but he honestly couldn't place from where he'd laid eyes on them. With the sheer volume of children he saw during the summer holidays, it was difficult to remember at times.

Slightly nervous at the girl being put back on the ground from the boy's shoulders, the wandmaker blew out a quiet breath. They had insurance, but... he'd have preferred everyone stay safely on the ground, yes. Within a few seconds, the measuring device whirled to life, zipping up to wrap and flatten itself against the small, blonde child. At least it had become more docile as the day wore on. Speaking of law suits waiting to happen...Troublesome tape.

...Luckily it was quick in it's work, marked by the small piece of parchment floating down in front of his face a mere two minutes later. It had been the most efficient measuring of the day by miles... Perhaps it was time to replace the device? He'd ask Fiona for her thoughts after closing.

Remembering himself, Florian plucked two brilliantly vibrant pink dahlias from a basket behind the counter. "For you." Offering them to the young girl with an exaggerated bow, he turned to her male companion. After a moment of thought, the gentleman was given a pure white magnolia. Yes, now to see about reading her set of numbers. Interesting ...Interesting, indeed. Scrunching up his face up in concentration, Florian put together a wand profile that he thought might be appropriate before setting off for the stacks. He had the core nailed down.... It would basically depend on the conductor. He had a few thoughts on that, but it would ultimately depend on that child. Her wand would be an impressive one, that much was for certain.

Returning shortly after, he presented the wand with a flourish. "A firm swish and flick should do!"

However slowly the measuring tape worked, it was certainly handling Annaliese more gently than it had the children before her. And rightly so. Somewhat mollified by this observation, she complied with its invasive behavior until it finally whizzed away.

... and left a shopkeeper in its wake. She hadn't yet noticed the man behind the counter; but with a couple of pink dahlias and a theatrical bow, he had certainly captured Leecey's attention. A small giggle escaped her lips as she accepted the gift, delight replacing the skepticism in her expression. "I get a wand and flowers? It's my lucky day." Perhaps this gentleman would make well of her fitting, after all.

Plucking Bast's magnolia from his fingers, she tugged him down to place it in the pocket of his shirt. By the time the shopkeeper returned, Annaliese was feeling less worried about the entire ordeal. Her brother really could have been a donkey right then, for all the chaperoning she needed to take up the wand she was offered. Gingerly, she gave it a swish and a flick.

When something thick and petaled began sprouting from its tip, the blonde nearly dropped the wand in surprise. A beautiful array of peach, blush, and orange florals were busting their way out, first budding and blooming before breaking off. Leecey’s fist of dahlias opened to catch them all— and suddenly, she was clutching an arrangement even Uncle Jim would admit was eye-catching.

Her first question, obviously, was not about the wand.

“May I keep these?” The FLOWERS. Otherwise, she was making Bast buy them.

...and luckily, he'd gotten it right on the first go. The wandmaker released a breath he hadn't been aware he'd been holding, grinning easily at her question. "You created these flowers. They're all yours." Lovely magic... and that reminded him of the wand's makeup. She'd need to know about that. "So this wand is crafted from brittle fir, an incredibly resilient species of trees. Having matched with it tells me you're a focused young lady who is neither changeable or indecisive." It only affirmed his original impression, quite honestly. Spot on. "Fir is excellent for Transfiguration, which makes sense as that subject requires mental strength." And a strong sense of self...

"As it's core is a dragon's heartstring, this one coming from a particularly ferocious Romanian Longhorn." He would know. He only cultivated wand materials from creatures who'd already passed into the afterlife, and had a written history. "As a power source, it will only drive your magic, amplifying fire spells especially with the help of the wand wood. This is a good wand to have at your side."

"...Do you need accessories?"


written: 12 1/4 inch brittle Fir with Dragon Heartstring [Romanian Longhorn]


Generally speaking, Bast was a fan of flowers. He just wasn't a fan of receiving them. At least, not from wandkeepers, and not when he was out with his sister. The young Toussaint knew the meaning behind flowers and their colors, and so this was doubly unappreciated. The wandkeeper got a mildly confused look that was tinged with Bott disapproval, but before he could do anything about the gesture Annaliese was taking his flower and putting it in the pocket of his blazer.

Sigh.

Fine. He would keep the flower so long he was with her. Sebastien did whatever his youngest sister wanted, but more so this summer, as it was there last together. He was more emotional about this than expected.

Except for now. Presently he was excited for his sister's first wand. This was the best part wasn't it? Getting the object that would help channel your power. His blue eyes were focused on her, not surprised when she managed to be paired with the first wand she tried.

Bast grinned at the flowers, admiring them as he spoke to the shopkeeper without exchanging glances. "She'll need a holster, wand polish, a leather case and..." Hmm. "Leecey, would you like it engraved?" His own wand had no such embellishments, but he knew his sister was different and could possibly like that.

Well, he was glad she found him amusing. This whole wand choosing the wizard thing was weird, but he guessed it didn't really matter as long Miss Fiona knew what she was doing and he got a wand, right?

Grinning at her words, and even more so, her reaction to his little stream of water, he looked down at the wand in his hand, and then back up at her. “You really think so? I've never done anything like that before.” At least not somewhat on purpose. Anything he'd ever done had been a total accident and he never in a million years had thought it was magic he was doing.

Edmund listened carefully to her words, wondering how she knew all these things. “Really? How can it protect me from lightning?” Would he have to do something special to make that happen? And what sort of creatures would he see in this new, weird world?

“Uh, Sure, I guess, what sort of accessories?” Did she have something in mind?

The thing was too long for her tiny hands (it felt like a meter stick in her fingers!). Fir was so unglamorous, not like rosewood or lime or something pretty. And a DRAGON’S HEART? In HER WAND? Unicorn hair was ideal, even phoenix feathers would have been acceptable, but THIS? This was just totally g-r-o-s-s.

All the wandmaker’s comments about her personality and Transfiguration and fire spells went in one of Annaliese’s ears and out the other. Of course, her disappointment wasn’t evident in her expression, but neither was the excitement that generally exuded from children in her shoes. She simply smiled at the man’s words, seemingly preoccupied with examining her new wand (and, in actuality, thinking about ways to break it).

“Thank you very much for the nice wand.” Glancing at Bast out of the corner of her eye, she considered engravings. Were those necessary? Hmm. Leecey shook her head in disagreement.

Perhaps when she was getting her real wand.

It was the first time since he had been tended to at the Shop that Brody actually smiled. It was a innocent one and not a bad one either. Too bad he didn't smile often. There was a rather calculating look on his face as he listened to the description of his new wand. "It does sound like the perfect match,'' he mused more to himself than to the woman. The wan was slowly turned over in his hands as he marveled at it. When it came to the 'outdoors' part, it was true. He did adore flying and would rather be outside than cooped up indoors.

Brody raised his gaze with a shake of his curly hair head. "No. My Uncle Lucas took care of a holster and polish and everything else for me. How much will the wand be?'' Coins were already being retrieved from his pocket.

While he was certain the shopkeeper could be deceived, Bastien knew his sister better than that. Though he couldn't placed why she was disappointed, she had a fine wand that would serve her well and looked nice too. It wasn't his solid black, but it was still a fine wand.

"Just those things then." He gave her shoulder a light squeeze and turned his attention back to the shopkeeper. Later, he would figure why she didn't jump for joy over having a wand.
