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).

Entertainment

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.

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.

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.

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

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?

1947 / Sacrifice | Open
« on: 04/20/2016 at 16:05 »
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.

« on: 03/23/2016 at 20:16 »


hello.
it's me.

I'm Teal (real name: Sarah) and I've been at Hoggies for almost 1 year exactly (April 16!). I am twenty-eight, a Scorpio, and live in Kentucky; I work as a Production Control Assistant by day and a Bartender at night. I'm married with no kids (because my husband and I practically are kids) and can't wait for the day we finally get a pet. #animalprobz

I am obsessed with beautiful things, art that makes you feel, and my Filofax planner. I listen to practically every type of music (with the exception of jazz), enjoy movies far more than I should, and read way less than I prefer. I just started re-reading the Harry Potter series, thanks to last term's thread challenge (that I didn't manage to participate in), and am quickly realizing I only added fuel to the fire.

EDIT: Also, irl, I would totally be sorted into Slytherin. I can be frighteningly ambitious (it scares even me) and I've always been just a teeny bit obsessed with occult things. Idk, it's weird. I yam what I yam.

I started making graphics and dabbling in coding last term and have officially become a woman-obsessed. If you need anything done, just drop me a line! (:

I have 7 characters here on Hoggies and this is my all-time favorite gif:

#inmyfeelz

And, now back to those characters!

Izolda Pavlova Astronomy extraordinaire and ice queen. She came to Hogwarts this past term to find her daughter (and did!) but has decided to take a teaching position at Durmstrang this term.

Jezebel Morgenstern A reporter for the Daily Prophet and Resistance member, Jezebel is just a hopeless romantic trying to find that special someone to spend the rest of her life with. (And she's been with plenty of special someone's, ftr.)

Nyx Ott My underdeveloped Hexen. She's still a continual work-in-progress. I have big plans developing for her next term though!

Sonja Lundgren An incoming first-year at Hogwarts who marches to the beat of her own drum. She's a rebel in every sense of the word and is the newest addition to my lovely bunch. :3

Sunday Twitchett My little adoptable. Currently a WIP.

Viktoria Borovsky A 20-year-old Hogwarts graduate and self-proclaimed poetess. She has dreams of finding a gentle-souled man to read her poetry and is a genuinely nice person (even if she is a Borovsky).

Zailey PetrovaPavlova An incoming fourth-year Slytherin who can't quite decide what she wants out of life. Known for being loud, a capable Beater, a horrible Seeker, and somewhat obnoxious; just found out her Astronomy teacher is her birth mother. A developing relationship despite her taking the Pavlova name.

11
Zailey Petrova
As a first year, she was confident in her abilities. As a second year, she was steady in her ascent. Now, as an incoming third year, this snake is determined to be a force worth reckoning with.

Whoever said being thirteen was easy obviously had never been thirteen themselves. This year, Zailey is beginning to find herself and is flying out of the shell headfirst. Loud, somewhat obnoxious, and generally looking for a good time--this Slytherin is poised to be the life of the party.

For the first time in her life, she is beginning to see boys as something you can possess as opposed to something you're friends with. As she continues to grow, she notices more and more of the world around her and wants a piece of the action.

She plans to spend her summer wreaking havoc on the incoming first years and making new friends.

1944 / Six Million Impossible Things [open]
« on: 04/29/2015 at 20:28 »
There was something magical about this place and, for the first time in quite a long time, the young Russian felt at ease and at home surrounded by extraordinarily large mushrooms and flowers as far as the naked eye could see. A kaleidoscope of colors surrounded her chicken legs, in shapes and sizes she could have never fathomed unless she had seen it for her own eyes, and now she had. Treading carefully through the meadow with bare feet, Zailey took special caution to not trample any of the flowers that licked at her olive legs as she strode past them. In her hand, she gently held onto the knotted pink strings of her equally pink, and worn, tennis shoes.

This whole thing was still so fresh and new to her; especially the idea that she had magical blood coursing through her veins that linked her to hundreds, if not thousands, of witches and wizards throughout history. The very idea that she, an orphan from Russia, would be part of something so rare and special continued to dumbfound her mind. Growing up in one orphanage, only to be sent to another years later, would undoubtedly lead one to believe that they were not worthy of even the most basic human love. However, the day that letter had arrived; Zailey's life had changed and in the moment, she was convinced it was for the better.

As she approached a patch of tall grass, her legs feined for a break and she willingly obliged. Laying back into the grass, she smiled as she basked in the warmth of the sun; the tall blades above her creating shadows on her lithe frame and the white cotton dress she wore with pride. If there was a heaven, Zailey was sure that this place was it. She was only a mere couple of days away from the biggest decision of her life, one that she wouldn't make but ultimately would be affected by, but in this moment Zailey couldn't have asked for anything more.

1944 / We're All Mad Here [open]
« on: 04/29/2015 at 13:34 »
The sun had stagnated somewhere beyond the horizon and the moon, enchantingly full, had begun to make its nightly ascent towards the throne it would cast down from for the duration of the evening. A lone silhouette lingered by the shoreline, a trail of well-worn clothing strewn across the sandy dunes haphazardly, staring into the black abyss that served as the Pool of Tears during the confines of the day. As shadows danced across the landscape, the russian child slowly began her descent into the treacherous looking water. Her lips pursed as she exhaled with every step, deep turquoise eyes watching as her knobby knees and then her lithe waist disappeared beneath the gentle lapping of waves.

As the cool water permeated her dry skin, the young girl breathed a sigh of relief; the heat of the day had penetrated every building at the camp and had left everyone desiring weather that was much more bearable than what had been offered. As the water began to lap at her chin, she pulled her legs up from the bed of the shallow end of the lake and positioned herself to float on her back; strands of brownish-gold hair went every which way, creating unseen shapes on the surface of the water. Turquoise eyes disappeared behind natural lids as she concentrated on breathing. As her body glided along the water, her mind sifted through the remains of memories on the brink of disappearing. As time slowly crept by, the child's memories had begun to escape her as well, causing much distress to the already fragile girl.

"Boris and Anya Petrova. Boris and Anya. Boris and A-" She began her nightly mantra, repeating the names to herself, lest she forget. But as each night passed, it got harder and harder to recall who Boris and Anya were. She knew the names but could not associate any memories of her life with two people she clearly cared about. Night after night, the young girl floated in the shallows of the lake repeating two names to herself but the reality of who and why these people weren't around became fuzzier and fuzzier. Opening her eyes, the word Anya on her lips, Zailey came to the full realization that she no longer knew why she kept repeating these two names. As silently as she had entered the lake, the girl could feel the warmth of tears on her cheeks as they rolled into the salty water. Her worst fear had become a reality, one that she was not prepared for.
