Special Announcement
I've added a coupon code for a special Hoggies discount at my Etsy store. Just click here! :D

Hi. I'm Teal.

That's me. Up there, in the circle. I just celebrated my thirtieth year of life here in western kentucky where my husband and i reside; by day I work in a factory and by night i sling beers and other adult beverages in a small bar located out in the boonies. when i'm not at my desk or behind the bar you can find me happily crafting away on my cricut, trying to maintain my etsy business, kentucky teal.

my profile says i've been here since april of 2015 but i recently came back from a six-ish month hiatus. i'm not very proficient at these introductions, so i'll try to make this as painless as possible by constructing some lists. (I'm sure I will forget something).


literature. i am obsessed with anything written by indu sundaresan. i'm also eagerly awaiting winds of winter from george rr martin! my collection holds biographies, mysteries, historical fiction, science fiction, non-fiction.
 i'd like to consider myself well read but i know there is so much out there i have yet to encounter. if you have any suggestion though, feel free to send them my way!

music. i could probably talk about this all day but i'll hit the highlights instead.
 a perfect circle, cold, marilyn manson, rammstein, bastille, mumford & sons, beyonce,
 post malone, in this moment, garth brooks--the list is never ending. i swear.

movies & television. i am a huge fan of period films and shows. right now i am watching outlander, this is us, grey's anatomy, riverdale, american horror story, the girlfriend experience, and eagerly awaiting game of thrones (even though i know it probably won't appear until 2019 *commence eyeroll*). some of my favorite movies include marie antoinette, memoirs of a geisha, 300, atonement, pride & prejudice (keira knightley version) and the hangover. i also like to watch anime with my husband when it's 3am and i can't sleep.

games. i am a huge sims addict! i game on both our xbox and ps4 and my laptop..oh and my iphone! i love tomb raider, the witcher 3, animal crossing, pokemon and the legend of zelda.

Zailey Pavlova. A recent graduate of Hogwarts (class of '51), slytherin, russian. She is just beginning to learn about her family and the many branches of the tree. she's nineteen and interested in being a writer.

Viktoria Borvosky. Hogwarts Graduate. Slytherin. Muse Owner. This young woman is a soft-spoken member of the Borovsky clan, she enjoys owning her burlesque club (muse) and reading poetry. she'd love for some young man to sweep her off her feet with his words.

Jezebel Morgenstern. Einstab Hexengymnasium Graduate. Local bad girl and bar fly. She did work for the Ministry of Magic but has fallen off the radar as of late. She isn't looking for love but definitely hypnotized by lust and booze. A ticking timebomb in every right.

Elizabeth & James Waters. The twins, Elizabeth works at Muse and James is employed by the Ministry of Magic. They are always into something and currently doing their best to raise January, Elizabeth's daughter together while James tries to sort out his identity.

Adolpha Anders. The newest member of my squad. She is a fifteen-year-old transfer student from Eisenstab Hexengymnasium where she was raised by a woman who took her in after the bombing of Berlin when she was younger. Ahpa has come to England to find her mother, Nyx Ott (deceased Hexenreich member). She is currently unsorted and looking to put her sleuthing skills to use.

The stranger was speaking to her, the embarrassment she felt was written all over her face as plain as day.

"Are you okay? You didn't burn yourself, did you?"

The brunette looked down at her splotchy red legs and shook her head as he approached--it didn't hurt nearly as bad as it looked. If anything, the simple act of dropping the liquid had alarmed her more than injured her. "I-" she began, tripping over her words as she spoke, "I'm alright. I just frightened myself.." she explained sheepishly, "it wasn't nearly as hot as I thought." No doubt this stranger thought her to be a clumsy fool. Internally she groaned at her clumsiness.

"I'm Zailey-" she began, thrusting her hand towards the boy rather awkwardly, "Zailey Pavlova. And you are?"

The Slytherin was sure she had never seen this boy before, she would've noticed him immediately. Right? Either way, he was here now and offering to help. Though her legs were still splotchy, the color only fading slightly, she gestured to the rug she was occupying and motioned for him to join her.

There wasn't much in the way of food at the moment (she was no Hufflepuff!), but Zailey didn't want to be labeled as rude before she could even muster the courage to make a new friend. Side-stepping a few feet, to make room for Ryan, she reached down to pick up her Advanced Potion-Making book. As she flipped it over in her hands she frowned, the page for Draught of Living Death had been redesigned in a new coffee color.

Just her luck.

One Week Until Summers End
Early Morning, Tartan Rug #3

Zailey shifted her body, ivory hands still clutching the steaming mug of coffee as she attempted to find a position of comfort. Only moments before it had been lost in the chaos of ants attacking a lone biscuit and an ill-timed sneeze; she worried she'd never find her place of comfort again. Raising the worn mug to her lips, she took a deep sip of the bitter liquid as a smile pricked at corners of her mouth. If all else failed, coffee was a surefire way to brighten the Slytherin's day.

With her free hand, she gently pulled the strap of a well-worn black bag towards her and from within its depths extracted a royal purple book with shiny silver writing. She turned the worn tome so the cover faced her, Advanced Potion-Making she read silently to herself. Already summer had flown by, they were on the cusp of starting the new school year. The thought alone made her well up with emotions she was not quite ready to deal with.

Flipping open the book, as she took another sip from the mug, she raised her eyebrows/ Page ten, Draught of Living Death. That's exactly how I feel with no coffee.. her thoughts trailed off as she took another long sip, blue-green eyes locked onto the figure of someone she had never noticed before. Perhaps it was an oversight on her part, or her total disinterest in boys up until recently; either way it made no difference. Watching him intently, she studied him from a distance (remaining silent) as she silently wished he'd look up and notice her.

Her interest in boys up until this point had been virtually non-existent, but her pre-summer activities in Russia had drastically changed the way she viewed the world. Out of habit she bit the inside of her lower lip, her nerves jumpy at the thought of a boy (any boy) speaking to her. She'd be better off staying where she was, she told herself, as went to turn the page of her book; instead Zailey managed to dump the remainder of her coffee all over bare legs.

"Dammit!" she shouted, quickly jumping up to prevent the liquid from staining her clothes. When she realized how clumsy she must look, Zailey flushed. Heat quickly rising to her cheeks and turning them a deep red.

@Fish: My first stamp of approval. *-*

@Nekkers: I'm ashamed to say I've only ever seen 2 versions and I prefer the Keira Knightley version. I think it's mainly because Matthew Macfadyen is a sexybeast and the soundtrack is just off the charts.

@Mia: SIIIIIMMMMSSSSS. What's your favorite version? Expansion Pack? Game Pack? UGH, I MUST OWN THEM ALL!

I don't have a whole lot going on right now,  I'm working on a large order of Harry Potter bachelorette koozies, but I should have more HP stuff up by the beginning of May. <3 CLICK ME XD

If that doesn't tell you enough about me, than I have failed.

Seriously though.

My name is Sarah and I currently reside in Western Kentucky with my 1 husband and 0 kids (not even fur-babies D:). I am an engineering bitch by day -- I literally just do other people's dirty work -- a bartender by night, and own an Etsy store where I make my love for Harry Potter into koozies and wine glasses and other fun stuff; I work anywhere from 70-90 hours a week but that's okay. I'm trying to fund my dreams! <3

I've been at Hoggies on & off for 2 years (on the 16th of this month), mainly due to my jobs and total lack of muse. I've dabbled in a little bit of everything; Professor, Site Promo, Camp Counselor, Stalker. I really enjoy working on graphics though, and building back stories for my characters. Um, what now?

Oh, yeah!

I'm a huge nerd when it comes to Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, obsessed with both the visual and the literary aspects of it all. I could go on for days, but I'll probably just make a list.

1948 / Re: Game Two: Team Legolas vs. Team Merry
« on: 08/24/2016 at 20:17 »

Team Legolas


There was little action to be seen up there in the fog as Zailey continued to swing her beater's bat on the narrow of her wrist. The weather obviously wasn't going to let up soon and having not seen a single person since the game started, Zailey was quickly becoming discouraged.

She yawned once more, her head turning quickly as she heard a loud whoosh echo right past her. "Hellooo?" she called out, her beater's bat falling to her side. "Knight?" she continued as she looked (to the best of her ability) in all direction's around her. The gentle whoosh sound was back and becoming quite loud.

Zailey gripped her beater's bat with both hands, swinging it around her frame just in time to collide with the bludger [Boromir] as it rocketed out of the fog. A deafening crack emitted and Zailey immediately pulled back to cover her ears, she could hear the blood flowing through them.

The bludger [Boromir] rocketed off somewhere below her and she silently prayed it would find it's way to one of the Merry's. With this horrible weather, how was a girl expected to accomplish anything?

Team Legolas


Somewhere between the end of her fourth year at Hogwarts, and the beginning of her fourth-and-a-half summer, it had struck Zailey as odd that she no longer needed the luck of her youth to navigate the precarious Quidditch pitches she had encountered over the years.

Her talents as a student and peer were slowly beginning to surface and with it, Zailey slowly began to realize she was quite useful when it came to wielding a wooden bat and taking on iron balls (with their own minds) head first. The thought both delighted and frightened her, yet she couldn't keep away from the drama of it all.

Balancing precariously on her broom, the snake waited patiently for the first signs of a Bludger. Her waiting, however, was in vain thanks to the heavy and nearly impenetrable layer of fog that had descended over the pitch of Camp Loki.

"Yeah! Team Merry! Make some Noise!"

The familiar voice of Irma came from just above, or was it below? Either way, there was no mistaking that Team Merry had latched onto the Quaffle and were now heading steadily towards their hoops. Zailey stifled a yawn.

Out here, one couldn't see a damned thing! As she ascended, hoping to find some clear sights, she lazily swung her beater's bat around her wrist. What good was their sticks if they couldn't even see the location of the beaters?

Biting on the inner portion of her bottom lip, Zailey settled on trying to find a Chaser. If she couldn't play offense, the snake was going to have to play defense. Now where were those Chasers?

1947 / Re: Game Two: Team Elphaba vs. Team Glinda
« on: 04/21/2016 at 15:22 »

Team Elphaba


It didn't take long for Zailey to delight in her position as beater; it was the one thing she was sufficiently good at when it came to being on the Quidditch field. No doubt it was not in the running for a potential career choice, but Zailey knew she didn't totally suck when it came to lobbing iron balls towards her opponents.

Pushing off from the ground of the pitch, Zailey began her ascent. Yellow and Brick were on the loose, she noted, as she took off after the Glinda hoops; Yellow was slowly creeping its way around the golden hoops and she was determined to put some pep in its step.

This summer had turned out to be alright, despite the events that led up to it, and Zailey was itching to burn off some of the resentment and anger she had been storing. In a month's time she had met her biological mother and got word that her twin had been located as well. Everything had changed in the blink of an eye.

Armed with her anger (and a wooden bat), she honed in on the Bludger Yellow and prepared herself (both mentally and physically) for the obvious. Pulling her batting arm back as she approached Yellow, she put all her weight behind her swing and sent the Bludger hurling towards Joy Detora.

(Joy wasn't her first choice but it seemed appropriate for the last game the Hufflepuff would ever play before she set off into the great big world.)

Perhaps it will require you to take the first step, to be the one to reach out in the darkness and provide a light for your other half to follow, until he feels more comfortable in our company.

Forever Yours, Izolda

The letter had come that morning, with a screech followed by moments of chaos as the brown owl that brought it became entrapped by the curtain, that was blocking out the rising sun, of the small room in which Zailey had slept since arriving at camp. It was the first correspondence she had received from her mother, Izolda, while at Camp Loki. And it was a welcomed one.

Her time at Loki had been just the medicine she had needed to appreciate the woman who had completely turned her life upside-down last term; the arrival of the strange Russian woman who taught Astronomy hadn't been too concerning until she had been summoned to her office over an article she had written for Spellbound. In truth, the article had been a personal stab at Professor Pavlova, but Zailey was sure (at the time) that she wouldn't have any idea who wrote it.

"My brother.." she murmured gently to herself as she folded up the parchment and stuck it back into the small black bag she carried with her. At least here, by the river, she could focus on the pros and cons of reaching out to the stranger with whom she had shared nine months in a womb with. The idea still sent a chill down her spine. However, she was quickly pulled from the thoughts of ice when she heard the familiar sound of footsteps behind her.

Turning slightly, she looked to the person approaching but remained silent.
