1939 / I've got a secret, I've been hiding, under my skin.
« on: 08/07/2013 at 15:46 »
Hello lovely people!

My name is Pamela. I'm a 20-something, living in the southern USofA. I started writing here in April 2008, and wrote pretty actively until about a year ago. I took a "break" because I had 3 months left of my job in South Korea and I was planning returning to the States. After I returned in November, I've sort of been lurking around here, sometimes posting and being around, sometimes not. I'm trying to really get back into writing though, because I missed it, and you all, so much. So I figured I could write an intro thread for this summer session.

So, about me. I'm an educator, with a passion for teaching and for musical theatre. My passion for music is greater than teaching, but at the moment, my teaching job dominates my life. I have a real-life dream of moving to NYC in a couple of years and pursuing a career on Broadway. Like, it's seriously in my life plan. It's gonna happen.

I sing, play a couple of instruments, enjoy watching and performing improv comedy, and nerd out in way too many fandoms. I love reading and movies/tv shows, and will obsessively watch every episode of a show until I've caught up with them all (I recently watched all 7 series of the *recent* Doctor Who, in two months).

I also enjoy traveling and love the fact that my passport has more entry and exit stamps than I can count. I've been to every continent except Africa and Antarctica, but I do plan on rectifying that someday. After spending 3 years living abroad though, I'm willing to put my passport in a drawer to get some home-country time. I'm sure that one day, I'll be off somewhere else again. I don't like to stay in one place for too long, it seems.

Okay, enough about me. My characters!


Tegan Owensby: 17, former-Slytherin, unknown location in wizarding Britain.

---Tegan is the daughter of the well known Head Auror, Michael Gray. She's also one of the few people who know about his true past and isn't afraid to speak her mind about it (He did kill her mother). Her aunt and uncle pulled her from school, after threats from her father, but now that she can legally apparate, Tegan is spending more time around Hogsmeade, since she can't be at the castle. While she used to be friendly and outgoing, life has made her more cynical and selfish. She seeks adventure in all the wrong ways, and doesn't want to listen much to what others tell her. Unless the "other" is Charlie Kedding, of course. But that's another long explanation.

Kellen Douglass: 21, Hufflepuff class of '74, comic shop owner, Hogsmeade
--Once a shy, asthmatic kid with anger issues, Kellen has grown up a bit since he was in school. After graduation, he spent a year in Australia, trying to get away from the memories of Hero Savage and everything that fell apart between them. Since returning, he's opened a comic book shop, which does pretty well, and dabbles in comic creating himself. The recent law changes have limited half of his stock, but Kellen has always prided himself in being able to find needed things. He's working on a way to get his American comics back into his shop, with or without the Ministry's approval.

Damien Andrada: 25, ex-Gryffindor, restaurant owner, Hogsmeade
--Life has never been easy for Damien Andrada. Even though it's been years since his release from Azkaban, he still holds on to some of that pain, while trying to prove normal to the rest of the world. Luck favored him enough to be able to purchase the Italian Eaterie, and now he spends most of his time running a restaurant. He doesn't talk much to people he knew from school, but he longs for the life he used to have. Without his family or his friends, Damien's life quite mundane, a face he would love to change.

Nicole Ouellet: 28, Ravenclaw class of '29, Ministry employee, London
--Depending on who you ask, Nicole is many things. To herself, she's everything you want to be. Money, beauty, power. To most others, she's nothing you want to be. Snobby, elitist, self-centered. She thrives on power and social standings and will do anything to rise to the top. She has yet to discover that her once-dead uncle has the ability to bring these things to her. And in a world where she wants power, and he needs an inside track, this might prove to be a dangerous combination.

Francis Ouellet: age unknown, location unknown, activities unknown
--A former SM leader and former Head of Magical Education, Francis Turin has been in hiding since his colleagues turned on him and removed him from his position (the details of which are different, depending on who is telling the story). He hasn't disappeared forever though, or given up on his SM-fueled dreams of power and ultimate magic. Francis is waiting, watching the world as it wars against itself, biding his time for the perfect opportunity to return from the shadows. Re-kindling a connection with his niece (Nicole Ouellet) could prove to be a step in the right direction, but only when Francis decides that time is right. Until then, he practices patience, as well as working on strengthening his abilities.

Sssssh...I'm not really here.

But, since I didn't get the video from Seussical until this past weekend, here are some clips, for those who were asking.

Sorry if some of it is difficult to hear. The person filming was right beside the orchestra.

1973 / Relaxation [Owen]
« on: 04/23/2012 at 07:15 »
Being a counselor was a busy job. Kellen hardly found himself with free time, especially with Lysander being the other counselor. That boy ducked out of his jobs so often that it might as well have been Kellen doing all the work.

Not that he hated the job, because he didn't. When Kellen first took the counselor position for the summer camp, it had been at his mother's insistence. But now, he kept doing it because it was good money, and he did get a bit of satisfaction from helping out the younger kids.

Besides that, with Hero being at the summer campus, Kellen definitely wanted to be there.

But it was to actually get a moment during the day in which Kellen had no responsibilities, and could have some time to himself. As an introvert, he still cherished that quiet time, even though the Hufflepuff had grown out of his shy demeanor a bit through the years.

So, a couple of comics tucked under his arm, Kellen made his way out into the forest, because he knew there was no luck of trying to get any quiet in the cabins. There was a tree in the forest though, which he had discovered a couple of summers ago, that had a perfect sitting branch. It didn't take Kellen very long to climb up into it, lean his back against the trunk and spread his legs out in front of him. Kellen opened up a comic and laid it in his lap, beginning to read.

Finally, some quiet.

Ok, so a number of you requested to see the video from my show. This is the easiest way I know to make that happen, because I don't remember who all it was.

Please don't feel at all obligated to watch it, but if you were asking, here's the link. It's just for one scene, because that's all I was on stage for. Everything else was off stage ensemble/solo stuff.

1973 / Hufflepuffs don't like EVERYTHING that is yellow.
« on: 04/08/2012 at 11:41 »
So, every spring, China and some other countries like to give us this lovely gift called Yellow Dust. It flies around in the air, gets in your respiratory system, and is a good cause for spring colds/allergies.

That being said, I've got a cold. I've had it for a week or so actually, but I've been denying it. :P

So, that's why I'm slow to post, even though I had been expressing lots of excitement over finally being able to post again after my show.

Bear with me, I'll post when I can, but if you don't get a reply from me quickly, that's why.

« on: 04/04/2012 at 02:30 »
Hey everyone,

Did you know that we have an official Hogwarts School Fan Page on Facebook? Well if you didn't, you do now!

As of the writing of this post, we currently have 924 "likes". One of my goals is to get us to at least 1000 by the end of the "summer." Will you help us out by visiting and "liking" the page, if you haven't already?

Because we need more than just House pride threads in the OOC. : D

This one is an oldie that we haven't done in a while, so I'll re-hash the details for those of you who don't know how it goes.

All you have to do is post three things:

^ Write something about the person above you.

< Write something about yourself.

v Writing something about the person below you.

I'll go first, which will serve as the example, and something for the next person to go on.



^ Must be wearing an invisibility cloak, because I can't see anyone there.

< Is super excited to be performing in a musical tonight.

v Also loves the dramatic arts.

1973 / Hey hey hey! It's Kellen!
« on: 03/25/2012 at 15:10 »
Ok, I guess I can start us off with these. :)

Hey everyone! My name is Pamela. American by birth, I currently live in South Korea, where I have been teaching ESL for almost three years now. It's an awesome job, and I really do love it. Although, I think that I shall soon be returning to US soil, for a bit of a break from international teaching/traveling. Besides traveling around (and Hoggies, obvs), I stay very much involved in music, and more recently, musical theater. I'm in a musical right now (Honk!), and after it completes, I will be plunging right into another(Seussical). I think I caught the acting bug. :P

As of this summer term, I have been at Hoggies for 4 real life years now. It's kind of crazy to think about sometimes, but I love this place so much I have to stick around!

Around here during the "summer" month, I am a moderator, helping out with our advertising and just to keep an eye on things (I'm watching you all! :P). So if you have questions about Hoggies, please feel free to ask me (as well as any of the other moderators). I'd be happy to help!

Characters!

Kellen Douglass: Rising 7th year Hufflepuff, he's the proud captain of the Hufflepuff Quidditch team. They've won the Quidditch cup two years in a row now, and he's very much looking forward to winning it a third time. Kellen finally got some sense about him concerning his best friend, Hero Savage, and the two are officially a couple. (Everyone say it with me: "It's about time!") Usually he spends his time just trying to not look foolish. Kellen's had a lot of drama in his life, but it seems that things are finally pulling together for him.

Tegan Owensby: Rising 3rd year Slytherin. She had her own fair share of drama this past term, discovering that her father (the same guy who murdered her mother), is roaming around freely, and in fact, working as the Head of the Auror Department for the Ministry. Somehow he was cleared of all his criminal charges. Tegan still can't figure that out. For now, she's trying to keep her head straight while dealing with this information. It helps that her best friend, Annabel Grey, always has some fun schemes to keep her distracted.

Francis Turin: You either love him or you hate him. Publically, he's the Head of Magical Education, and the Ministry's eyes and ears at the castle. And mouth as well, as Francis has made it very clear of his power at the school and how much he likes to assert his authority. Secretly, he's one of the leaders of Supra Mortalitas, a powerful wizarding group which has taken over the Ministry of Magic. Fun stuff!

Damien Andrada: Former Gryffindor, he spent a year in Azkaban for the student murders which occurred in 1970. Since his release, he's just been trying to find out what is "normal" again. He's frequently seen at Honeydukes, where he works. Or somewhere hanging around with Penny Connelly, when she permits him to be there.

Jason Bonaduce: He's the co-owner of the Italian Eaterie, the best place for Italian food in Hogsmeade. Jason is an active member of the Order, a rising political group in the magical community (which is secretly run by SM). Jason lives in Hogsmeade with his girlfriend, former Ravenclaw House Head Rhoswen Hardwick.

And other minor characters which I never play enough, but I really should: Isaiah Winthrop, who just graduated from Salem. Nicole Ouellet, former Ravenclaw, super rich, and a super snob. And Alyson O'Sullivan (Schooner), former Hufflepuff Head Girl, mother of one and living in Hogsmeade with her husband, Tomi.

That's me!

The party at Kellen's place
Much later that evening


Kellen was feeling good. Really good. Whatever nervousness he had from earlier in the evening was now gone, and Kellen moved around the backyard, chatting with people, enjoying the music. He stopped at the punch table again, filling up his glass  that he could have sworn he just filled not five minutes before. It didn't matter though, because he could always get more. It didn't even bother him anymore that Lysander had finally shown up, oozing confidence and all that stuff that Kellen never had. Kellen just made sure to avoid him. It was such a fun night.

But of course, all good things much come to an end.

For Kellen, the end came when he saw the back door open to his house, and his mother walk out with a tray of more food. Well, stumble would be a better way to describe it. He saw her trip, but somehow she managed to stay up. Unfortunately, the tray of food she was holding did not do so well, flying up and scattering all over the ground.

Depositing his cup on the nearest table, Kellen hurried over, almost tripping over someone himself, but finally making it to where she was, trying to pick up the items off of the ground. Kellen looked down at her, letting out a snort of laughter before he stopped himself. "Mum...what are you doing?"

Bending down, he started to help her, and then noticed, the look over her face, and when she thanked him, Kellen noticed the smell. "Mum...how much did you drink?" Another laugh. "Ssseriously though, you should go back in."

"N-NO. I'm fine, Kellen. Don't you w-w-orry about your mum. Lemme heeeelp you and your friiiiends have fun." She giggled, and tousled a hand through his hair. "Mum." He looked more sternly at her. "Stop. You sit right here. Don't move, ok?"

After setting the tray aside, Kellen gave her one more look and made his way back into the crowd of people, not stopping until he found who he was looking for.

"Hero. I...I need your help with something. Can you help me get my mum inside? Quietly?"

1972 / All I Want for Christmas...
« on: 12/23/2011 at 23:45 »
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

So, for the past couple of years, I've done a bit of something for the Christmas holidays, creating some Hoggies fun, just because I love you all. One year I rewrote "Twas the Night Before Christmas.". Last year I rewrote "Jingle Bells." I wanted to do something more, and since I've been recording more music lately, the plan was to rewrite another Christmas classic and record it.

However, due to a few factors (my RL school year ending at work, so I was really busy, and a cold zapping my voice), I was not able to record this as I had hoped. But, something is better than nothing, so I will leave you all with the lyrics, and maybe one day I can actually record it.

Without any further ado, "All I Want for Christmas is a Broom."



I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I only care about one present
Falling from the owl to me
I just want it for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is
a new broom!

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I only care about one present
Falling from the owl to me
I don't need the magic stockings
That keep me warm in any place
And Merlin, you won't make me happy
With new robes on Christmas day
I just want it for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is a broom
A new broom

I'll do anything for this gift
You just have to let me know
I'll clean out all the potion cauldrons
Or clear the courtyard of the snow.
I'll take my old broom and give it
To some kid who isn't quick
I'll even volunteer to tutor
Teach kids how to swish and flick
'Cause I just want it here tonight
Holding on to it so tight
What more can I do
all I want for Christmas is a broom
Ooh new broom

See the students flying
So quickly everywhere
And watch me catch that quaffle
As I soar through the air
And everyone is playing
You can hear all the crowd saying
Oh we need a win please, faster brooms are what we need
Please get a new broom for me...

Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just want to see that broom shape
As the owl flies through the door
Oh I just want it for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Oh all I want for Christmas is...
A broom

All I want for Christmas is a broom.

1972 / A request...
« on: 12/13/2011 at 22:31 »
I don't really do this a lot, but there are those of you on here who I've made good friendships with, and most of us understand the closeness that comes from being in the Hoggies "family", so I know that I can come to you all with requests of this sort and can count on your support.

Those of you who were around last year might remember when my older sister was battling with cancer. She was fine once she had surgery and she went through all of her chemo and radiation treatments.

But the doctors just found another tumor, on her ovary. She is going in on Monday for a biopsy. Given the fact that it's in the same area her cancer was last year, there's a good chance that it's malignant.

I know that my family would appreciate (and I definitely would appreciate) any prayers, good thoughts, or whatever it is you believe in going her way. She's scared, but determined, and it would mean a lot from her to have lots of support, even from people she doesn't know.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate you all, and the fact that we've got a community like this where we can share concerns and support each other.

-Pamela (Kellen/Teegs)

1972 / Strangeness and Charm [Hero,Lylah]
« on: 12/11/2011 at 15:59 »
By the time dinner rolled around, Kellen had told Hero everything he could about Lylah. It wasn't everyday that he met someone who drew comics (even though it was just one) and who could properly draw with magic ink. Kellen couldn't help it, he was excited.

And of course, he wanted Hero to meet her. He figured they would get along. Hero was good at making friends, so she would probably get along with Lylah even better than himself. Since Lylah would be joining them for dinner, Hero would meet her anyway. Because Hero and Kellen always had dinner together, unless a schedule conflict came up. When he invited Lylah to join them, he had completed expected the two to hit it off.

Hero had walked to the meal hall with him, after Kellen retrieved the magical comic from his cabin. Once inside, he was quick to get food and take a seat, within easy viewing of everything going on. That way, they couldn't miss Lylah when she came in.

"Really Hero, she's awesome. I think you'll really like her." After a few minutes, he spotted her, and Kellen wasted no time in waving his arm and calling out to her.

"Hey, Lylah! Come on over here!"

1972 / The only place that I call home [Hero!]
« on: 12/09/2011 at 14:01 »
Late July
3:25pm


Backpack slung over one shoulder, Kellen bounded up the stairs to the Nutcombe cabin, only knocking twice before opening the door and peaking his head inside. Hero was expecting him anyway, so it's not like he was going to be surprising her. As for the other occupants of the cabin, well, they could just deal with it. Kellen didn't hear any screams as he entered, so he figured it was all okay.

Seeing her by the bunk, he quickly walked over, pulling the small box out of his bag. It was wrapped in a clothe that his mom sent, because he didn't want to touch it too soon. "You ready? I definitely need a break from this place." Without even thinking about it, Kellen handed the wrapped box to Hero and picked up her bag with his other hand. Then he nodded to her to unwrap it.

"Ok, one...two...three."



His feet landed firmly on a hardwood floor, in his own bedroom. They lived in a muggle village, so there was no way that they could risk Kellen and Hero popping up right outside of their house. This was the best way. He looked around, thankful that his mother had cleaned his room up and didn't have any thing embarrassing of him laying around, like younger pictures or something. Leave it to his mum to do something of that sort.

Turning, he smiled at Hero. "Welcome home. Well, to my home. I'm gonna warn you before we go down, my mum's gonna be a bit crazy about seeing me. So be prepared."
