Caveat

Whilst we naturally strive for optimal customer satisfaction, it has rightly been said, by our owner no less, that "the wand chooses the wizard", and thus, while assiduously sought, customer contentment, sadly, cannot be guaranteed.

An air of wariness hangs about Ellie as she enters the somewhat unfamiliar store; apparently the wand she had in Australia would no longer be fit in England (she had no idea why). The store at first glance seems empty, but a tense feeling in her muscles tells her it was indeed occupied. "Hello?"

The old wandmaker appears, seemingly from nowhere, with a smile highlighting the many lines on his face. "Hello, my dear. Garrick Ollivander at your service."

Arielle wanders into the store; her mother had told her it sold the best wands in England, and besides, it was a new wand for a new start, right? "Hi?" The young Frenchwoman leans against the vacant desk to see if anyone is in. If they aren't, there are enough other supplies to be bought (like ice cream, clearly key to her education) that she could come back later.

There's a bit of a thud from the back room before Mr. Ollivander appears, dusting his shoulder off just a bit. "Hello my dear, pardon the dust. How might I be of service?"

The bell on the door tinkles cheerfully as the first-year-to-be practically bounces into the wand shop, staring around at the shelves with wide eyes. Her usually braided hair is left to fall down her back (mostly because she liked to fiddle with things and undo it), and she looks around corners curiously. "Hallo?"

The wandmaker waves to the family with another first year who's just left, before turning his eyes to the young girl. "Step right up-- Garrick Ollivander at your service."

Despite not wanting to show her face so publicly, she needs a new wand. Her previous one no longer functioned well, something she couldn't afford. "Hello?" Sounding as confident as she looked, the German blonde sought out Ollivander.

He quirked an eyebrow. "There's no one else in here at the moment... you may speak freely."

She knows better than to get herself tangled up with the authorities, so she plays it off with a smile, adopting a relaxed posture. "Well... I attended Durmstrang. Mutter left my family when I was just a babe to start fresh. Vater... well, he wasn't a good man. I attended Durmstrang and excelled in Potions - and dueling, for that matter. I found out I had a half-brother in fourth year, but he disappeared without a trace shortly after my graduation," she pauses. She recognizes can't elaborate further than that, so she makes a swift change in the conversation's direction. "I like to duel. I'm adept at making potions, even the hardest ones there are. I can be sneaky and secretive, but I just like to keep my matters private, I suppose," she shrugs.

"Its usefulness, definitely. Depending on the potion, you could heal someone so much as you could make them suffer. You could pass for someone else, you could unlock different parts of your brain you've never used before. The list of its uses is endless."

He nodded. "Very well, let us make our first attempt at a match." He turns and carefully pulls a box from the bottom of a pile, leaving the stack intact. He presents the box to her. "Hawthorn, and Unicorn Hair."

She nods and takes the wand, handling it with care since it's still not her own. She knows how this works, so she doesn't wait for him, giving it a flick.
