lesson one!

do you really wanna hurt me?

★★★★

Workbook started

★★★★

 

The section of the Towne family that housed Dandy and his twin sister Savannah was what many people would be considered the black sheep part of the family.  Though, this wasn't always necessarily true because until five years ago they lived next door to their relatives in the wizarding section of St. Albans. One day Portland Hamilton Towne got tired of the wizarding community. He wanted his children to experience the muggle side of life. That would be the exact reason they lived in the three story house that overlooked a garden inside the muggle community of Welwyn Garden City.

 

It was nearly time for them to be getting their acceptance letters to Hogwarts. In the mind of Dandy it had actually hurt when he saw Havana get her acceptance letter. He wasn't quite sure why because he knew he was going to be getting one just before the school year and it was going to include the ticket for the train to the Hogwarts Express. Each day until the letters finally came, young Dandy, was told by Savannah that he wouldn't be getting one. 

 

She assured him that he was definitely a squib. Why Dandelion Towne didn't know what he would do with himself if had turned out to be a squib. It was something he didn't want to deal with. Magic seemed cool and he saw her mother and father do it everyday. He just had to learn magic, be able to perform magic, and he just had to not be a disappointment to the family - he had heard that every day from Savannah.

 

'You're a disappointment.' 'Mum hates you.' 'Dad says he wishes you were never born'. All of them were not true on their parents part, but only existed in the mind of his sister. He couldn't tell her that he was obviously on to her, right? Maybe, he could go snooping around and find something on her. There had to be something that Savannah Rose Towne had hidden away.

 

However, in the middle of his snooping he heard the tapping on the window and looked up at the window of their room and there was an owl. One that he had never seen before and it was holding a letter. He sighed thinking that the letter was probably meant for Savannah. He slowly walked over to the window and opened it allowing the owl to enter into the room he shared with his twin sister. Maybe she was right, maybe he was only destined to be a squib.

 

Wait. What was this? It seems that there was a second letter in the owl's grasp as he tossed the letter that was marked for Savannah onto her bed. He grabbed the second letter that had his name beautifully written in calligraphy on the envelope and opened it.

 

'Dear Why Towne,

 

We are happy to tell you that you've been accepted as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy. The attachments are the required books and stuff you'll need for your first year. We've also attached a ticket for the Hogwarts Express. It leaves September 1 from Kings Cross Station. Have a wonderful summer and don't forget to always have a constant look out.'

 

He smiled as he grasped the letter and the ticket in his hand and collapsed onto his bed. He wasn't going to be a squib after all and his dream was going to be coming true. He was going to be a wizard, but most of all he was going to only have to be around his sister for purposes of classes. Clearly, she wouldn't be in the same house as him. That would be absurd and the sorting hat wouldn't do that to him.

 

He had already shared enough with her over the first eleven years of his life. Nothing else needed to be shared. Not even the same house. He had to get in a house that was different from hers. A house that she would never be in. 

 

He had to be a Hufflepuff. Hopefully the sorting hat would realize that and put him there!

lesson two!

do you really wanna code this?

★★★★

Why Dandelion Towne

Pre-Hogwarts Primary, VH35

I am named after a small town in Arizona!

★★★★

 

He was in the forbidden forest. He couldn't figure out why this had happened, but then he remembered the scene from the sorting feast.
 
He remembered that someone had came up behind him and put a blindfold on him. He had been told to get up and grasp the hand and lead him through the castle. He hadn't realized they weren't still in the castle until he felt the breeze on the part of his face that wasn't covered up. The voice he recognized as he wasn't sure what was going on.
 
It was Savannah, but where was she taking him? He asked her about thirty to forty times about where they were going and each time he got the same answer: common room. Each time the answer got more and more annoyed by the question that was coming out of his mouth. He was about 190 percent sure that the common room for Hufflepuff wasn't outside. He had absolutely no reason to trust his sister, but from the fact that she was controlling where he was going and that she tied the blindfold tight enough that he could untie it even if he wanted to.
 
Each step seemed much further from the castle than the previous. The heightened senses that he attributed to being blindfolded heard the many cries and crackling sounds of fauna and other inhuman objects. Even though, he was blindfolded he could feel the darkness from the forest engulf him as the blindfold seemed even darker.
 
He then heard the second pair of footsteps that were with him running in the opposite direction. He was alone, blindfolded, and worst of all he was breaking the rule of being in the forest. Somehow Savannah would pay for this trickery, but first he had to figure out how to get the blindfold off and out of the forest without getting caught.

lesson three!

do you really want a dictionary?

★★★★

the five words


cautious - Dandy is wary of anything that has do with trusting people because of the interactions he's had with his sister. He doesn't really like doing stuff that seems dangerous because he really just wants to be safe. Being safe is fun, right? Being safe is always fun. One must always have a constant eye on everything and be constantly vigilant. Once he gets to know you he will do most anything with you as long as you're friendly and on speaking terms with each other.
 
trusting -  Despite the fact that Dandy is very cautious he is a little too trusting. As seen in everything that his sister makes him do. Dandy likes to be friendly with everyone that he comes into contact with and this causes him to do things he shouldn't do and would really regret if he wasn't a very trusting person.
 
forgiving -  This springs from the trusting nature that he exudes. If someone does something to him that hurt him he would be the bigger person and go to them and forgive them. He does this especially with his twin sister who tricks him and makes fun of him with every breath and step she takes. If Savannah was ever to ask for forgiveness he would hug her and tell her that he forgives her.
 
loyal -  Once Dandy truly trusts someone and is comfortable being in your company. He will be with you throughout it all, unless he knows you're in the wrong, but even then he will still back you in most altercations.
 
humble -  Despite being a pureblooded wizard, he is very down to Earth and doesn't through his pureblood status around like many in his family. He just enjoys being around friends and helps them by staying on their level, but he does it out of love.
 

★★★★


Magical creatures were something that he had believed in since he was a little boy and lived next door to his cousin, but the five years he spent living in the muggle community with his parents had mostly vanished. He had heard things in passing about things that muggles had seen, but he still didn't know exactly if these were real things or not.  Ghosts might be real or not, but he didn't know for sure.
 
Each day he spent playing in the yard out front was an opportunity to see something that he hadn't seen before or believed in for a little bit. He held out hope to see something as he played outside for most of the summer playing with his toys that his father bought him. He had RC cars, a pogo stick, and couple of action figures that he would pretend were fighting crime.
 
One day while playing outside he saw something out of the corner of his eye and went to take a closer look and he saw a small gnome running around his backyard. He realized that perhaps magical creatures did exist and he ran inside to find his father.
 
"Daddy! I just saw some gnomes in our backyard," he smiled cheek to cheek.
 
His dad sighed and knew that they had to figure out how to get rid of the gnomes, but he also knew that his son had been in the muggle community for too long and forgot about simple things as gnomes being a tiny terror. His father smiled, "So, did you wanna know about other magical creatures. Do you remember the stories you heard back in France from your grandparents?"
 
He smiled and nodded towards his father, "Yes! There were something like very attractive humans that had a special power because they were part-something? What was it called?"
 
His father smirked, "Veelas! Beware of them, because they could trick you without you knowing!"

lesson five!

do you want to be my friend?

★★★★

Pre-Hogwarts Primary was one of the best inventions that were known to man, but that would make Why Dandelion Towne the only one ever to think of it - well at least the only pureblooded wizard to think that. He would meet many people that he would come to be his best friends, his worst enemies, and maybe future love interests. He just had to introduce himself to the entire class and that included his twin sister, Savannah. This couldn't go wrong, right?
 
He stood up and walked to the front of the classroom and looked around at the entire classroom.
 
"Hello! My name is Dandy Towne and I have an evil twin sister who just happens to be in this very classroom," cue the eerie music, "My father runs a coffee shop in South London called, Portblendia, and my cousin Havana is currently a Slytherin at Hogwarts."



★★★★


Now I just sit in silence.
The above link takes you to my Extra Credit thread in which Dandy wants to play with his fellow classmates, but he's afraid of what his older (by minutes) sister, Savannah would do if she realized he was out there. Won't someone come be his friend and want to learn to love and respect Dandy?

lesson six!

do you want to be my pet?

★★★★

He had wanted a pet for as long as he could remember, but for as long as he could remember Savannah had always referred to him as their family pet. Dandy wasn't a pet, but a boy and a boy with feelings and the fact the person who he had known since he was born and knew the ins and outs of his entire life thought that way was disheartening. Each time he wasn't referred to as her twin brother hurt, but he knew that he was more than that - a fact that his father had definitely hammered home in many, many, many talks about what his role in the family was.
 
Savannah Rose Towne in his mind was evil incarnate. She would never let him have something of his own and he knew that they would probably have to share a pet. His father made it clear that it was the only pet he would buy for the both of them. He couldn't choose the pet that Savannah wouldn't like, but she could definitely figure out a way to bully him into getting a pet that he definitely would not care for one bit.
 
There they were sitting in line at the Magical Menagerie and he had a rat in a cage and a glaring look towards his sister. He didn't want to have pet rat. Pet rats were evil. Pet rats were disgusting. One could say the pet rat was the embodiment of his sister. His father wasn't having any of the staredown between his offspring as he twirled his wand in his hand - threatening the first one to throw a punch or kick would be the first one to be hexed.
 
Dandy wasn't going to hit Savannah because he didn't want to be hexed, but then suddenly his sleeve was pulled and his arm went forward, making a fist instinctively, and right into the shoulder of his sister. His father shook his head and grabbed his wand and gave him a small hex.
 
"OUCH," he turned to his father, "SHE MADE ME HIT HER."
 
He turned to look at Savannah and she had the most angelic and innocent look on her face. She was such a liar.


 

★★★★

 

Pre-Hogwarts Primary had pets and they were the cutest things. This was something that young Dandy Towne enjoyed because it made him feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Much better than when he's forced to be around the stupid twin sister of his - he was certain that he wanted to go back and look at the family tree he created for his family and cross her name off multiple times. He wanted to write in many words that wouldn't be appropriate for a nearly eleven-year-old wizard to be speaking or even writing down with a quill.

 

The feelings that he had when looking at the miniature pig that belonged to Mrs. Blithe and smiled. Pancake was one of the more interesting names for an animal, but who was he to judge his parents literally named him a one word question. He had decided that perhaps the little pig would wanted to be picked up and cuddled because if he was a little tiny pig he would want to have the exact thing done to him.

lesson seven!

do you want to take an elective?

★★★★


Hogwarts had so many elective classes that he had heard about from his parents. Muggle studies, divination, arithmancy, care of magical creatures were just a few of them many things that were offered. Dandy had thought long and hard about what classes he would want to take; the one that stood out in his mind was muggle studies. Why muggle studies? His mother wrote countless books on her experience with them and how they interacted with each other at her job as a tourguide in London.

| php lesson 7 |
 |vh35 |


The classroom had begun to fill up with the many different students of Pre-Hogwarts Primary. Dandy was one of the students who were forced to come here even though he had the pureblood status, but he was grateful that he came to the primary. If he hadn't been told that it was something that was mandatory he would have no idea exactly what he'd have to learn about Hogwarts. His parents only revealed minor things about the school like the names of the houses: Hufflepuff, Slytherin, Gryffindor, and Ravenclaw; the main traits that one would need to have to be sorted into the house you would want to be.
 
However, this lesson focused on the idea of homework. Homework? It was summer. They didn't need homework and that was the main thing that Dandy didn't need to deal with. He already had enough to deal with at home between his sister and his parents insisting that he was to try out for quidditch just like his cousin. He sighed and shook his head.

lesson eight!

do you like fun?

★★★★


For many years upon his ability to be able to walk and talk his parents had told him that he would be the next big quidditch star and that he would find his way onto the national team. Dandy, honestly, was rather afraid of the idea of flying on brooms in the air and chasing after balls that could be labeled and registered as dangerous weapons in the muggle world. He had no inclination to even want to tryout for a quidditch team when he got to Hogwarts.

 

Instead, he thought more about the idea of dueling. Dueling would be something that he could help get his frustrations out with. He would learn the spells that he could make his twin sister rue the day she ever messed with him and called him the family pet. It was something that he wanted to do so bad. Why couldn't this happen?



★★★★


He had known that his mother and father had wanted him to sign-up for quidditch tryouts. He had stared intently at the sign-up sheet hanging on the bulletin board in the common room. He had seen multiple names written on it trying to make the team. Dandy Towne thought about the idea of disappointing his family, and the letters he had found from Savannah to Havana about how she would be the downfall of Why Dandelion Towne.

 

This wouldn't be true. He would not sign up. Savannah didn't have the power over him, but he walked closer over to the sign up sheet and stared at the list and read the names before seeing his name already written down on it. He did not write his name. That handwriting was familiar and it was most definitely Savannah's. He eagerly grabbed the nearby quill and started to cross off the name "Why Towne" on the list.

 

He would find Savannah and this would be settled in the dueling chamber.

lesson nine!

do you want to sort me?

★★★★

Hufflepuff would be the rightful landing spot for Dandy. He has many of the main characteristics that would make him a shoo-in to be in the house of the badgers. He's a friendly child, he can help find things, but he is rather introverted because of his sister. The shyness that he exhibits is a direct correlation to what he would consider the traumatic years that he has been forced to endure from his sister. Once he gets to know someone he will really open up, but always be vigilant thinking that his sister is going to steal away the person's friendship. Friends are important.
