He nodded. "Well, I think I have enough for a first attempt. One moment please." He moved behind one of the shelves and came back, rather swiftly, with a box. "Vine encasing a freely given Jarvey tooth. Why don't you give this a try?"
*The birdlike head emerges around a wandstack.* "Almost invariably, my dear. How might I assist you today?"

"I'm looking for a new wand, mainly because I want a whole new start with a whole new family plus the tip of it snapped off." Aglaea started becoming nervous about if Ollivander starts asking her questions about how her wand snapped, concentrating on keeping her appearance the same
*Observing the internal struggle played out upon her visage.* "My dear, if I may offer a modicum of unsolicited advice, many things benefit from an airing. As William Congreve so perspicaciously observed, "See how love and murder will out", and they are far from alone. It might save us both time and effort to begin from the same knowledge of your situation."
"Well, I was in a car crash with my father, which is how my wand snapped. I survived, he didn't. I was put in Lil Bundles for a while cause he was my only family and after a while, I was adopted by the Olmypian family." As saying this, her ADHD started taking over and her hair colour changed through all the shades of green
*The eyes are sympathetic, but not pitying, the tone level without being portentous.* "A sad, yet regrettably not unique tale, and a significant element to our search. So, if you could choose one way in which to be most like your father, what would it be?"

"Well, I have his family's ability so count that out but I would say, being able to learn all types of things. Why does this matter, Sir?" Aglaea asked

After hearing about wands he started researching them. the more and more he learned about them, the more and more he wanted one. he found his way to the wand shop. Walking in giddley he calls out he says"Hello is there anyone here?"
There is silence for just long enough that Benjamin might think no one is there, but then... out of the shadows... the old wandmaker appears with a smile on his face. "So sorry about the wait, dear boy. How might I assist you today?"
He smiled. "A noble quest, and a necessary one in some eyes. So, to find a suitable partner, I need to first hear your story. What has brought you to this point, anything you'd find pertinent to tell me about yourself."
Not wanting to mess this up he decides to be go through slowly thinking this over"So i grew up not knowing that there was magic in the world, but i always dreamed that magic was real. i grew up learning about everything i could. I always thought weird things happened around me.So when The letter arrived me and my parents were ecstatic. after i got it i decided to learn as much as i could about this world before the start of the school year. I've spent the last few weeks studying. Now I've arrived here."
this question was unexpected but he wasn't going to question it."Well i hope that i would be able to have an entertaining conversation with them, but other than that i just want to get along with them, I'm not picky."
He thought about this answer a lot actually so he was excited about this one"My dream hasn't actually changed that much"I did and still want to travel around the world and discover new and exciting things."
He nodded. "I think we have enough to make a first try..." He turns around and faces his stacks. He moves over to a rather precarious looking pile before deftly taking one box from the middle, leaving the pile unmoved. He brings it back. "Let us try this... Sycamore, encasing a Hippocampus Scale."
She's been told she needs an English wand to start her new school, by her brother. Apparently the American ones weren't quite as refined, he said, she wasn't really bothered by the difference. As long as she could do magic with it..."Hello?" Well, she was here now, with the bell-tinkle heralding her arrival, so she was...stuck, it seemed.
She did not, most certainly did not jump slightly at the appearance of the old man. (Well, who said Gryffindors couldn't be afraid of some things? Bravery comes in its forms.) "My brother Phoenix sent me to get a new wand. I transferred from Ilvermorny this year, and he says it might - help me adjust, I think. He said this was the best place to come."
He nodded. "Very well. To start our search for a suitable match... it is helpful if you could tell me something about yourself... your history, your passions... whatever you feel would prove useful."

She purses her lips breifly, considering the quickest yet understandably summary. "I had a rough childhood, straight up gave up on my mom a bit into my time at Ilvermorny and moved in with a friend. Worked in an apothecary for a while, did some time for overaggressively defending my friends, some military service after, then I bounced around a bit as an...advocate for the oppressed."
"This friend who you moved in with.... what qualities did they have that forged that friendship?"

"We were both muggleborns so we bonded over a love of certain muggle entertainment, and he's just a nice guy. He didn't mind asking for clarification when he wasn't sure what I meant or how I meant it. Kindred souls, or something, I guess." She ends with a shrug.
He nodded. "What, if anything, do you feel that Wizards are missing out on from Muggle society?"

"Just about everything. Muggles have something called the internet, which is like a whole bunch of information and ways to talk with people and entertainment all with the push of a few buttons, and we have newspapers, books, and sports. Not to mention the other technology they have--and how everything has shaped their culture. Wizard culture hasn't changed nearly as much, at least I don't think so."
"Either, or both... whatever you feel like sharing," he said with a soft twinkle in his eye.

"My experience wasn't anything spectacular. Bit of sexism, some didn't care to have an ex-con in their unit, lots of dirt in places I didn't know I had. Overall, though, militaries are a necessary not-quite-evil. It's better to have one and not need it than to not have one and get destroyed, you know? And I personally think people need to chill the heck out in general. Some things aren't problems until you make them one, you know?"
He nodded. "I believe we have enough to start searching for a match." He moves around a few stacks and finally selects a box from the top of a small pile. He opens the box and presents the wand to Lex. "Blackthorn, and orange Fwooper Feather."

Carefully, she removes it from the box and gives it a flick.
He handed the wand back to her, and spoke to both mother and daughter. "There's nothing... structurally wrong with the wand. The Porlock Mane hair encased inside hasn't split, or withered in any way. The wand wood is still polished, clean and strong. Occasionally, larch wood can be difficult to master... but it would have done so within the course of the first year of partnership."

She furrowed her brow. "So... what are you saying, Mr. Ollivander? Does she need a new wand?"
She'd consider it but...felt like if she said yes she'd be lying, and she couldn't do that. She'd shake her head slightly, looking at the floor and trying not to tear up. Her voice would be a little shaky. "No...not really...no."
He nodded solemnly. "If you feel the partnership hasn't been damaged, then there is no need, and frankly no use, in seeking a new one." He looked at Hope. "But her wand is in... perfect working order."

She nodded. "Alright, thank you, Mr. Ollivander. Let's go home, Rosie."
