His hand trembles slightly as he reaches for the door handle, heart racing. Today he would find his wand. He couldn't help but feel there is something serenely personal about, like a statement on who he is. Another part of him feels like he'll just be told there's been a mistake and he is not, in fact, a wizard. Just the casual self-deprecation setting in. He turns the knob, taking two steps in. "Hi," he squeaks, face going red. Friggin voice.

"Our very essence of existence, young sir, although if I might beg mildly to differ, *A sweeping hand takes in the superscription over the door* you come rather to be chosen than to choose. That aside, the bond must needs be mutual, and so we strive to find that example of the art which is most compatible with your good self. Hence, and in preparation, I shall require information of you ... or perhaps more accurately on you. Almost anything you might care to share, within the bounds of decorum. So, please, tell me about yourself."

"Oh yeah, of course." He nods his head, mentally berating himself for his word usage. "Well, I'm pretty young, as you can tell. I'm originally from Colombia,uh, with an o not a u-" he laughs weakly at his joke "-I moved here from the U.S. Uhmmm..." Mateo thinks hard. "I'm t-trans? a transguy. I didn't know if that's really relevant though." His ears go pink. Even if he isn't afraid to tell people who he is, he's used to being stigmatized. "Uh.....I guess it's important to know I'm happy now. Happier. I had this really bad depression but like, I guess I didn't really realize it till it was getting better. I mean, I don't wake up wanting to die anymore." He laughs again out of nerves. Maybe he's said too much. What does a wand have to do with happiness? The guy probably thinks he's crazy. Man I must seem angsty, he groans internally.

He thinks about this inappropriately first, then wipes it out of his mind. Damnit Lamb. "Uhmm....I don't think magic..." He takes a moment. "Well, I guess I don't think magic should change a person. Physically? Okay, that's fine. Spritually, personality wise, virtues, all of that, I don't think magic should play a role in changing that." He shrugs, knowing it's a dumb answer.

He walks into the shop, a small bag of money in tow. After the expenditure on the quidditch game, he'd managed to recover some assets from his dear old dad. Unwanted money, but necessary if he is to attend hogwarts properly. Wolfie makes way to the back of the store. "Hello?" He calls.

Ergo, you are confronted with two choices - address me with civility and treat my work with respect, or depart. That decision is entirely yours." *There is an unquestionable crackle in the air, a miasma of power swirling and fluming to centre on the quiet but rigid figure in its midst.*

A wand is a wand is a wand, and if he has to swallow his pride to get one, so be it. Wolfie after all, isn't an idiot, only an ass. His expression remains unchanged. "Alright then.

*The smile is restrained, but visible.* "Self-restraint is, even for a Slytherin, a trait worth cultivating, for those occasions where bluster and power will not achieve the desired end. Perhaps your time at the castle will be more productive than I initially imagined.

She hesitated before she launched into her story, Brody had warned her about this question "My mum's a witch but my dad's a vampire." She hurried on quickly, not wanting to give him time to determine what that meant about her "My mum didn't find out until after she was pregnant with me and she wasn't too happy. They stayed together for my sake but that only lasted until i was 4. They got a divorce and my brother and I switched between their houses every few months. My mum got remarried pretty quick, introducing two step siblings to the family and my dad remarried after that introducing 4 more.
