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 returned soon enough and offered a different box with the lid already removed so she could take the wand from within.

"Give this one a go."
Isla hadn't realized she'd been squeezing her eyes shut the whole time she'd been trying out that first wand. She slowly opened to her eyes to see that what she thought had been her causing a crash hadn't exactly been that at all. "Oh," she said, kind of embarrassed. "I kind of got confused. Sorry. I'm a little nervous." Still, something about that first wand didn't seem quite right, and she assumed the wandmaker felt the same way seeing as he was reboxing it.

Isla drew in a deep breath and released it slowly. Out of all the times she'd imagined herself getting her wand, she had never imagined herself being this nervous. She nodded when the wandmaker brought over a second one, and she took it and held it tightly without moving it at first. Slowly, she felt the nervousness disappear. It was like holding the wand make all her worries disappear. Was that kind of thing even possible? Did wands do that?

She drew in another deep breath, but this time she felt more confidence. She pointed the wand forward with a good flick, and out came the most beautiful sparks of color she had ever seen. "Look what I did!" she exclaimed.

"You have there an 11 2/3 inch solid aspen wand with dragon heartstring for the core - a welsh green in fact. 11 galleons for that one. Are you wanting any accessories for it?" He pointed up at the board with all the products listed upon it.
Catherine's eyes widened when the man said her new wand had been made in the nineteenth century. Gerbold Ollivander... The young brunette blinked and looked from the man down to her wand. That was fascinating. She didn't even mind the battered box after that piece of information.

He was right, it did shine. It was genuinely the most beautiful wand Catherine had ever seen, and that included all of her parents' and other relatives' wands. Hers was the most beautiful and, as of that moment, her favourite. Aspen wood and Welsh green dragon heartstring. It annoyed Catherine a little that it all meant so very little to her right now. She'd have a lot to read on before boarding the Hogwarts Express.

But she didn't want to think of that day just yet. She was doing well keeping calm today by being excited about getting her school supplies - mainly her beautiful wand. If she wanted any accessories? "Um, just a holster, please." She replied quietly, finally taking her eyes off her wand and blinking up at the man again. Turning bright red, the girl mustered up some courage and pointed at the books she had spotted earlier. "Do you sell those too?"

"You did nicely! That's certainly your wand. An 11 2/3 inch swishy pine with unicorn hair for the core. 9 galleons for that one. Are you in need of any accessories?" He gestured up at the menu board, where there were all sorts of wand-related equipment written up with prices alongside.

The sparks were still going, and Asher was all for having his own firework show. If it were dark, he totally would have ran outside and flexed his spark-producing wand to anyone who had happened to be out there. He was tempted to do that right now in fact, though there were a few things that were keeping him from doing that: the daylight would have made the sparks less impressive, he hadn't purchased the wand yet, and he knew he'd probably trip and poke an eye out or something.

When he glanced over at the shopkeeper, the sparks began to die down. The look on the guy's face let him know that everyone was going as it should, and the boy beamed up at the man when he stated that they had a match.

Adrenaline was surging through his veins. The WAND had chosen HIM. That was SO COOL! Asher was on the verge of waving his wand all over the place, but still somehow managed to control himself.

He nodded when the description of the wand was revealed. Eleven and three quarters inches in length and rather firm. That was bigger than his brothers' wands! And his wand was hazel, which meant it was already prettier than theirs too. They were going to be sooooooooooooo jealous! THERE WAS EVEN A CLABBERT TOOTH IN HIS WAND!!!

Umm...

"What's a Clabbert? How did its tooth get in there?" Answers to these questions were of upmost importance, especially if he wanted to seem super smart when people asked him about it later.

Oooof. Ten Galleons for the wand. It was a good thing his mum had given him a handful of those gold coins. He wiggled his pocket so the coins jingled loud enough so the man knew he had the monies he wanted. Though the boy did wonder what would have happened if he was a Galleon short or something. Would he have to hand over the wand? Or did the man have chores that could be done to make up for it? Not that it mattered. Asher had enough, he was certain of it.

"Just the wand, please, Mr. Shopkeeper Dude." The curly-haired boy wanted sweets later, so he couldn't let himself splurge.

A still-kinda-nervous Isla looked at the wandmaker, and a sense of relief came over her. She'd done it! She'd matched with her own, special and unique wand! And the best part was, she hadn't even destroyed the shop in the process! "Unicorn hair?!" she said with a smile. "That's awesome!" She didn't really know if it was awesome or not. For all she knew, it could be bad luck or something. It just sounded awesome to her, so awesome it was!

Accessories? Uhh... "I have no idea," she admitted. "My mom didn't tell me whether I needed accessories or not. Is there something I'm supposed to have?" So as long as he wasn't a bad guy and tried to sell her tons of galleons of stuff she really didn't need, she was okay with trusting him.

Even if this wand wasn't the one, it was close and would direct him to the next option by process of elimination.

"Give it a good swish and tell me how it feels."
Charlie nodded her head at her instructions to just swish the wand. Taking a deep breath she raised the hand holding the wand. With the flick of her wrist she waited for something... anything to happen. She smelled the daisy flowers again and bright blue glitter and streamers started flying out of the end of the wand. ”is this normal?” her big brown eyes had worry in them that maybe it wasn’t the wand when she was hoping it would.

He took it back and smiled reassuringly at her. "It helps narrow things down every time there isn't a match, so don't fear." In fact he had a second option already in mind and opened that box for her to take the wand out from.

"Round two." She knew what to do!
Roma had a faint pout of disappointment on her face as she gave the wand back to the wandmaker. She had wanted the first wand she tried to be the wand for her but, unfortunately, it didn't seem like it wanted to be the one. She had always, always, thought matches were made in an instant. She had quite an ideal story played in her head of how she wanted her wand fitting to be. Was it even possible to be disappointed with a wand? Because she was. She also wasn't scared. The wandmaker told her not to fear. She didn't have anything to fear. She would find her right match eventually. It was the way of the universe.

Her brown eyes followed the second option curiously and excitedly, and she was able to file away her disappointment with the first wand for this. Roma didn't have enough space in her body to have more than one emotion for the time being. The eleven year old took the wand from the man, again gently as if it would fall apart if she applied too much pressure to its handle, and examined it as well. Round two. Here it goes.

Instead of the zigzag movement from earlier, Roma mimicked a sweeping gesture with the wand. With that, bright pink sparkles spewed out of the wand like a ribbon with her every movement, like she were a fairy from children fiction books. Her eyes lit up just as brightly as she watched what she was doing. She was!!! Doing!!! Magic!!! LOOK.

She turned towards the wandmaker with her big brown eyes and a smile that could've been so much wider if she weren't so amazed. Is this it? Is this the one? Yes, please say yes.

Darius took a moment to stare at the wand in his hand, he hadn't experienced a feeling quite like that and hadn't been told to expect something quite that extraordinary. He glanced up at the man who confirmed that it was his wand.

Goodness, they were a few Galleons short of the cheapest brooms... Well, it had to be worth the price. Luckily, that wasn't on his mind to own right away. "A.... holster will be fine. Black leather. " He said in a sure but not firm voice. That could be handy with duels, and he didn't want to risk losing such a rare make of a wand. He was pleased with hearing that kind of information about it. "How much will it be with that?" He asked, while checking his coin bag to count the expected amount.

"Um... a leather one." Catherine told the man quietly, looking from where he was gesturing towards then back at the general ground direction. Customisable? "Could I please have 'C.M.' embroidered on it? Small letters in purple. On a... normal-coloured leather." She finished, quickly blinking up at him before diverting her gaze again.

Catherine was wondering if the spot on the floor she was looking at was dust or a stain when the man said they did sell those wandlore books. "Could I please have a copy of The Potioneer's Guide to Wand Care and Use... mum?" She turned to look at the bearer of the money, who happily nodded.

What was a clabbert? Something for the kid to learn about in his Care of Magical Creatures class, but Ramiel smiled, not minding the questioning too much, all things considered. "Clabberts are magical creatures that are something like a mix between a monkey and a frog. A wandmaker had to work with the tooth and the wood to get it in there, as with any core there's an art to it to make it balanced so that the wand will work correctly. Best pick up a couple of books on the subject if you're interested in knowing more, either about wand cores in general, or about clabberts or other magical creatures. There's a few excellent bookshops here in Diagon Alley." Ram took payment for 'just the wand' and smiled at the boy again, glad he seemed happy with his new wand.

"I'd suggest a holster for you at the least. You won't need any polish or anything at least until next summer, so perhaps you can come back and let me know how your wand is doing, and we can see about a conditioning oil treatment then." Ramiel suggested, selecting one of the leather holsters and showing it to the girl. He rang up her purchases and said goodbye and then turned his attention to the next customer.

"Sure is! Normal when a wand makes a match for something lovely to happen. That one is certainly your wand. 10 1/2 inch whippy Alder with Phoenix Feather for 9 galleons. I'm very glad to see that one matched!" Ramiel rang the young girl up and sent her on her way with her new wand.

"Well isn't that lovely?" Definitely her wand! Ramiel nodded in confirmation. Even if it hadn't been obvious to him (it was, pink sparkles? Very obvious), what was noticeable was that the girl LOVED it, he could see that in her eyes that she'd made that connection. That was his favourite part, when the children could tell just as well as he could that yes, that WAS the wand for them. "A very rare wood that one. Not one of our usual woods here at Ollivanders. 12 1/3 inch unyielding Lignum Vitae with hippogriff feather. Its one to prize. And the price is 14 galleons." It was not a cheap wand by any means, but it was, as he had said, quite lovely. "I would suggest you come back next summer and I'll show you what you need to do for longterm care of your wand. It will be fine until then, and that way it will have a year to get to know you and how you use it."

He rung her up and said goodbye before turning his attention to the next child in line.

Goodness, they were a few Galleons short of the cheapest brooms... Well, it had to be worth the price. Luckily, that wasn't on his mind to own right away. "A.... holster will be fine. Black leather. " He said in a sure but not firm voice. That could be handy with duels, and he didn't want to risk losing such a rare make of a wand. He was pleased with hearing that kind of information about it. "How much will it be with that?" He asked, while checking his coin bag to count the expected amount.

"17 Galleons with the holster." Said Ramiel, taking down one of the nice black leather ones and packaging it up for the boy. He took the counted out money and sent him on his way with a smile. "Enjoy your new wand."

Catherine was wondering if the spot on the floor she was looking at was dust or a stain when the man said they did sell those wandlore books. "Could I please have a copy of The Potioneer's Guide to Wand Care and Use... mum?" She turned to look at the bearer of the money, who happily nodded.

"Normal coloured." So.... brown? Undyed? He picked one up and glanced at her to check that it was what she had in mind, and then nodded. Alright. Purple letters. "I'll have that done for you by the end of the day. You can either come pick it up then, or I can have it owled to your address, free of charge." Whatever she preferred. As for the books.... He took down the requested volume and added that to her total too. Once her mother had paid, he waved at the pair of them and had the holster put to one side with her details written on a scrap of parchment, pinned to it. He'd have that taken care of shortly!
