Ask my OCs anything - The Phantom Librarian

Ask my OCs anything
Eh, stuck on a Chapter 6 title and it's kind of late, but I may as well get something in.

So... anything you want to ask my OCs (the characters that are actually only in my stories)?

I'll take them for, say, forty minutes to an hour--ten minutes before one, my time. :)

ETA: Okay, going to sleep now. You can put in questions if you want, but it may take a while to get to some of them. :)

So, Regulus, what kind of shock was it to jump a few decades into the future? What was it like meeting people you'd known before, such as Narcissa and Andromeda? What was it like finding out what had happened to your brother and other relatives?

Oh, if only Regulus were my original character. That would mean I'm JKR, and therefore not broke... ;p

Let's see, 8 am here, means 11 pm your time? Ok... *rubs hands*

Teddy - when will you be able to see Victoire as something more than a half-relative? I.e. girlfriend material? Wait - you're not an OC, so scratch that question.

Ruth - now that you've decided snogging Teddy is out, are you going to help him see the light regarding Victoire? I think you've noticed her attraction to him, and their general compatibility?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 06:05 am (UTC) (Link)
It's not really necessary, is it? The Ruth Scrimgeours of the world and the Victoire Weasleys of the world know where we stand in relation to one another, which is sort of the real reason I decided to quit Teddy cold turkey--avoid being ditched later. But I'm not about to just hand him to her!

Neil, how was your first night in Slytherin? If we'll hear about that later anyway, tell us about the journey across the lake! Did you get to know anyone?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 06:17 am (UTC) (Link)
Well, I imagine Corky might say something about the first night to Teddy, so I'll go with the other. I've been on a boat before. I was sure it was going to tip over. Teddy put me with some nice enough sorts, I suppose, but you don't talk a lot during the crossing. You just look up at that castle. I thought it might swallow me. On the far side, while we were waiting for Professor Longbottom, I got talking to a skinny, speccy boy. He said his name is H.J. Mayne, but the hat called him Harold. He's in Slytherin with me, and he said that his mum told him that "Harold" is Harry Potter's real name, and all of those people who name t heir sons Henry after him are wrong. I told him that I once asked Harry what his real name was, and he said it was actually "Harry." H.J. just sort of growled and said that his mum was quite sure of what she'd said. I let it go.

Oh... *wrings hands* There two that I have, so I'll ask them both and you can pick the one you like best?

Younger Weasley siblings! What did you think when your sister got together with Teddy?

Valeska, can you tell me something about the time you spent living as a human with Fleur's grandfather?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 06:21 am (UTC) (Link)
[Artie]I thought it was really weird, honestly. They'd sit around the garden and snog, and it was as if... well, as if I were to kiss Lily Potter or Rosie. Or, you know, Muriel. It's disgusting.[/Artie]

[Marie]Artie, you think it's disgusting when I'm going with a total stranger.[/Marie]

[Artie]Well, what are you doing going with a total stranger? You don't know anything about him![/Artie]

[Marie]:rolls eyes, ignores Artie: It's Teddy and Victoire. It's not like we weren't expecting it. Other than Artie, and perhaps James.
rotae From: rotae Date: April 10th, 2008 06:16 am (UTC) (Link)
Ooooh... can I reserve a question? I'm at work, but I wanna ask something :D Can I think about it and ask when I get home? :D

Peace,
Rotae

As long as you don't want the answer tonight! I must sleep. :)

Probably too late but..

To Teddy as an old man: What is the thing you most regret.

Re: Probably too late but..

Not too late, but Teddy's not one of my OCs!

Daniel, what do you think of Hogwarts?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 06:40 am (UTC) (Link)
It's fascinating, for its age alone. Its traditions are largely continuous for a millennium... how often does that happen? The library is full of dusty, leatherbound books with parchment pages, and I can sit under cathedral windows to read them. Madam Pince isn't at all sure about allowing a Muggle access to some of them, but Headmistress Sprout insisted that I be given full resident privileges while I am here.

You wouldn't believe the amazing magical diseases out there. If I could take those back to the old Smeltings history club, I think they'd keep busy all year!
anj1290 From: anj1290 Date: April 10th, 2008 06:35 am (UTC) (Link)

hopefully not too late...

Daniel, how are you feeling about your upcoming time at Hogwarts? / Has your lack of magic or Cho's possession of it ever caused problems in your relationship?
anj1290 From: anj1290 Date: April 10th, 2008 06:37 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: hopefully not too late...

Lol, the above question hadn't been asked when I started typing my comment. I'm glad to know that more people care about Daniel. :-) Anyway, my second question stands, if there's still time.
jedi_chick From: jedi_chick Date: April 10th, 2008 06:37 am (UTC) (Link)
Donzo, what OWLs do you take if you want to be a professional musician?

And if I can ask a second one:

Nate, how did you ask Evelyn to marry you?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 06:55 am (UTC) (Link)
[Donzo]Advanced accordion with Professor Sprout. Oh, all right, joking aside? It's what I was doing before school. It doesn't require anything that I would take at Hogwarts, though it really has occurred to me to put a band together. That's how the Sisters started, after all--a few Hogwarts students who liked music, getting together to play in the Great Hall. So there are no O.W.L.s required. Dad recommends taking any class with what he calls "revelation" in it--Divination, History of Magic, Defense Against the Dark Arts... classes that talk about the vastness of the universe and the human experience in it. That will help with song-writing. Which explains, I'm sure, how I started my career bouncing around a stage extolling the glories of hopping about in mud puddles.[/Donzo]

[Nate]I wasn't very creative. We spent the day after transformation together, just moving slowly and recovering, and we were eating lunch. I said, "Evvie, what do you think of us getting married?" She told me to phrase the question properly, and I did, and then she said yes.[/Nate]
From: (Anonymous) Date: April 10th, 2008 06:42 am (UTC) (Link)

Please don't be too late!

Daniel, what was your first reaction when Cho told you she'd been offered a temp position at Hogwarts ... and you'd be living there with her?

-Sqveege
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 06:57 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Please don't be too late!

My first reaction, I'm afraid, was "How long is 'temporary'?" Once she promised it would only be a few months--surely no longer than Christmas--I was glad for the chance to spend some time purely inside the wizarding world. I'd really only been on the fringes. I'd seen very remote corners of the world and stayed in them for years, but I'd never visited the equivalent of my wife's home town. I could take a season's sabbatical. Maybe I'd even learn something I could do!
under_crisis From: under_crisis Date: April 10th, 2008 08:49 am (UTC) (Link)
can't believe i was online and missed this!!! and i was gonna ask about nate and evvie, because i was curious about them getting together, but thankfully someone beat me to it so i can ask something else.

like, evvie, when did you know that it was nate after all and not robert? although i expect robert becoming a catholic priest put paid to that childhood crush.

and daniel, i expect that since you're obviously in the know with the DA folks, you'd have met with dudley sometime. was there any awkwardness in your first meeting post-smeltings?

and fern, i see an amulet on daniel's suit... i guess the mira-showing-daniel=hogwarts scene would also have occurred, except it's now cho. great detail :D
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 02:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
[Evvie]Hmm. Alderman was away so much catching up on his education--first he had to learn French, then get a rather advanced education while studying in a second language, including a third, dead, language--that he just sort of slipped out of my crush radius. It was before Nate and I were together. I think most of the girls had little crushes on Nate at one time or another; he was a cute boy, and usually alpha once Alderman left the boys' cave. I just, er... how to put it? While transformed, I made a bid for alpha female. We'll leave it there.

[Daniel]Actually, I spent a good amount of time with Dudley during my fifth year. He wanted to help, and there were only so many things Muggles could do. Lupin had us working together. It was disturbing.

Please don't be late :P

You might not know, but i'm obsessed with your Tonk's Friends :)

Sanjiv, When Tonks announced she had married Remus, what was your reaction?

Maddy, Has tonks or sanjiv ever come to you in a dream and what was it about?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 04:01 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: Please don't be late :P

[Sanjiv]As I recall, it was, 'It's about bloody time.'

[Maddie]Well, talking to Teddy about what those dreams are like, I think I've only had one, and it hardly told me anything at all. (Honestly, if Sanj started trying to give me answers about the meaning of life, I'd wake myself up laughing.) Tonks came to me once, but it was nothing but... how to put it? A social dream. We sat in the Hufflepuff Common Room and talked about Teddy and Daffy (on my side) and Sanj and Remus (on hers). I think she was just lonely for some girl time.
daksian From: daksian Date: April 10th, 2008 09:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I've got a couple!

To anyone who has lived past Teddy: how did Teddy die? (if you answer that, I swear I'll faithfully review every single post!)

However, here's another one, just in case:

Corky and Maurice: describe your first night in Slytherin, and learning that Slytherins take care of their own problems now. Who told you? What was said?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 06:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
[Adhara Black]All right, but get into the boat, please; there's a lot of rowing before I hit the Anti-Disapparition border, and I'd rather not spend a lot of time on the mainland anyway, if it's all the same to you. Bloody Purgers still running around, though Teddy made the Roost safe from them. That was the last thing he did. We needed to make the island disappear completely, and couldn't figure it out. Teddy disappeared into that work room of his, and he brought Sirius with him, which was odd, as the pair of them haven't got along--I think Sirius thought his dad expected too much, and Teddy thought Sirius was a slack--but Sirius was always a good Seer, even in his cups. They somehow learned how Avalon was hidden. There was a free will blood sacrifice involved. Teddy ruled it out because of that, but Sirius decided his life was pretty useless and tried to do it anyway. Teddy... didn't let him. He got in the middle of the spell himself. It paid the blood sacrifice. We're hidden, unless you know where to look for us, and I suppose, in the end, that's what Teddy would have chosen his death to mean.
milaya36 From: milaya36 Date: April 10th, 2008 12:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's way past the deadline, but not many people commented, so I'll go for it anyway. So Donzo, how's your love life going? And how is Maurice doing?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 11:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Interesting combination of questions, that. And strangely, not the first time I've heard the two combined.

As to the first, I'm nearly sixteen. I do well enough for myself, I think, though I have to be careful where I'm seen in public and with whom, as every time I'm seen with a girl in public, some reporter will come up with a mad engagement story. Or even, in one case, a "secret marriage and family" story. I believe her name was Elaine, and we had a very cute baby girl. I'd love to meet her someday; she sounded delightful. The nastier reporters prefer a less bucolic life for me, of course. I am both too busy to pay attention to my friends and admirers and so idle that I have time to party with any number of undesirable partners (of both varieties) and various illicit potions. That sounds very tiring.

As to Maurice, he's Maurice. He plots revenge against reporters, but never does anything. Been acting a bit weird this year, but then, with Maurice, "weird" can be hard to spot.

Ehh, I'm late, butttttttt........

Ruthless, at this point, what are your honest feelings about Victorie? o_0 (Is it ok to include a reference TO a canon character?)
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 11:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
I suppose I think of her as I'd think of a sister--can't get rid of her, don't get along with her, have nothing whatsoever in common with her, often have an urge to take a Beater's bat to her, and would seriously hurt anyone who tried to hurt her. Mainly, it's the same sort of thing that I feel about Kirk or Keith or the twins, though in that case, I don't often feel jealous of them, and they've never tried to tell me what to do with my hair.
marycontraria From: marycontraria Date: April 10th, 2008 02:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
I want to get to know Marie better... so Marie, can you tell me a bit about what makes you different from each of your sisters? (And brothers too, if you want to go that far...)
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 11:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hmm. Well, Artie is like James and Teddy, which means he has his head in the clouds, which I don't. Aimee and I have a good lot in common, actually--I wholly approve of her ongoing war with James. Muriel is too small to have much of a personality yet, but I'm working on her. Lance is teething. I have all my teeth.

Of course, being first and second, it's Victoire and I who are always compared, and there's nothing to compare. I love my sister, but she's uptight and very hyper about things. And NEAT? I can't leave my bed unmade without her rushing in to tighten up a whole ward's worth of hospital corners. Me, I'm happy to toss my shoes across the room at night. Victoire sets hers carefully down in the same place, with the toes always pointed in the same direction. Do you appreciate that? The TOES ARE IN THE SAME DIRECTION.

Hello, Mr. Wintringham! How have you been, sir?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 10th, 2008 11:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Why quite well, young... well, from this distance I can't say for sure whether you're a young lady or a young sir, but you seem quite the nice type. I must say, I've been feeling younger myself the past two years. Amazing what it's like to have a lady in my life again. I wake up, I comb my hair (what's left of it, anyway), I dress up smart, and I get some exercise to keep in shape so I look like I deserve to be on someone's arm. I've even been playing my harp again, as there's been occasion to serenade someone.

Marie, what did you and the Sorting Hat say when you were sorted?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: April 11th, 2008 01:50 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, it commented on my Weasley-ness, and I said that people thought I was like Dad. The Hat said I reminded it of Granddad's brother, who I never actually met. I asked it if Weasley girls' brains were different from Weasley boys' brains, and it said that it didn't really have enough information, since there hadn't been many Weasley girls, and I wasn't much like Victoire or Aunt Ginny. I said it should just wait to meet Rosie, who's nothing like any of us, and--

Oh, let me be Victoire, I'm almost done, no one will care if I'm a few minutes late for supper...
