Issues? Questions? Comments?

If there's a problem I want to know so I don't continue doing it.

Likewise if there's something good and entertaining that I'm doing I also want to know so I can continue doing that!

Any questions about the character or my personal interpretation (why I've chosen to go a certain way, for example) please feel free to ask and I will try to explain as best I can.

Leave a comment here (screened) or PM me.

It had been a strange week or so.

Not that anything had been that normal since he'd arrived at Dissimulo but the oddness seemed to be increasing - at least in what he was used to seeing.

Gellert was currently wandering down one of the streets, looking around. Creatures had seemed to be scarcer lately which was at once a blessing but they had also broken the boredom. It had been difficult for him to idly entertain himself with his magic.

A distraction could make things interesting.

[There's a flicker of what may be the golden glow of a flame on Gellert's face, but it just makes the shadows surrounding him deeper. If anybody met him before, they'd now notice his features have lost their brightness and under his eyes are shaded darkly as if he's been having trouble sleeping. He shivers then begins talking to the camera.]

Listen, everyone in the three cities. I do not know if this is normal for you here but the darkness and the dementors are as bad as if we are in some sort of prison.

Are there any other wizards from my world out there? Ones that can use their magic? Happy thoughts can only keep them at bay for so long.
wandthief: (Eyes)
[A close up of a pair of clear blue-grey eyes can be seen as the camera clicks on. At first Gellert doesn't realise that the video is running as he's not used to such a modern device. He can be heard speaking to himself and can be seen properly after a moment when he pulls the communicator back.]

[In German]

What is this...

This is very peculiar indeed... Some kind of Muggle communications device, perhaps?

Can anyone hear me? If you can then maybe you are the ones who brought me here and I demand you return me at once! I do not know what kind of game you are playing but when I find you, you will certainly know you are dealing with no ordinary wizard.

..... Hello?

[He taps on the screen then laughs - the sound strangely bright given the circumstances.]

I feel like I am talking to myself...

[He looks up and around himself. Behind him the Dissimulo church can be seen and probably some Christmas decorations too. His eyes turn to the screen again.]


[In English.]

Hello? Is anybody hearing this?

I am graduating.

My warden has just informed me, so no, this is not a joke. Whatever you may think of my past misdeeds I have accounted for them now.

I have been granted a little time to say my goodbyes.

I appreciate the help that a select few have given me here. I'm sure that you know who you are.

I've always found beards to be annoying - but I am going to assume that this won't be for too long.

It's strange. I am not used to seeing him so old. Last time I saw him face to face he was perhaps half this age. But his eyes aren't much different than they were back then. Still that vivid blue. It is unsettling to see them reflected in the mirror back at me. I have to admit it fills me with sadness - and yes, regret - for what I could have had. Now, I know that might sound selfish but I think I understand something more of what I did now. How it affected everything and everyone.

No false bravado. I made a mistake - I made a lot of mistakes. Many I was loathe to admit, even to myself.

I am done.

I am ready to move on.

It must be my time soon, if not now.

I really do hope that liking the majority of people here is not a requirement of graduation.

Because you are a very difficult group to like. You complain and insult for little to no reason. You threaten and murder - or are hypocrital by threatening and then not following through. Cowardly, I will add to that in those cases. You ignore some things that may be of importance yet jump all over certain other things that essentially should be ignored.

I am speaking about both inmates and wardens here. The vast majority, anyhow - not every single one of you. There are a few exceptions but they are very few.

It is not surprising that there are very few graduations, considering most inmates have no wish to and so do not even attempt to be better people and most of the wardens do not care less about those in their care. An occasional punishment once your inmate has slaughtered multiple people is hardly keeping a decent watch on the situation.

I am honestly tired of the pettiness displayed here. I can understand inmates being stubborn and thinking they are right all the time but wardens should set better examples and do what they are here to do. Or they should leave.

Most of you are bringing about your own misery.

And truly, if you do wish to remain here then you could at least stop complaining.

[The communicator clicks on and Gellert can be seen reading a book - which is partly obscuring him as it is boldly in the foreground. The title can clearly be seen: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. He's reading aloud.]

'Educated at Durmstrang, a school famous even then for its unfortunate tolerance of the Dark Arts, Grindelwald showed himself quite as precociously brilliant as Dumbledore.'

[He chuckles then continues reading aloud.]

'Rather than channel his abilities into the attainment of awards and prizes, however, Gellert Grindelwald devoted himself to other pursuits. At sixteen years old even Durmstrang felt it could no longer turn a blind eye to the twisted experiments of Gellert Grindelwald, and he was expelled.'

[He flips backward some pages, reads some then remarks.]

At least they don't insist I stole that wand by torture and murder. Who says I cannot restrain myself?

[The video is still running as he continues to flip through the book.]

[Private to Adric]

Obviously we need to talk.

[The video clicks on and Gellert is sitting in his room, his eyes have a calculating look to them - which may just be from his uncertainty. He has some minor but obvious cuts and bruises on his face and neck. He has other similar injuries elsewhere but they aren't visible. He had a chickfight bird!fight with Howie up on deck during the port.]

I am not sure whether I am glad to be back to normal or not.

Did everyone... survive?
wandthief: (Golden eagle)
[A handsome golden eagle sours out of Gellert's room on the eighth floor. The corridor outside is a little cramped, however, so he alights to the ground, walks a few paces before trying to fly again. He's aware enough that he recalls where the deck is and proceeds that way - not expecting to fly from here but hoping there will be more space.]

[Note: he'll likely be able to communicate with other birds and animals and may understand humans but not be able to talk back to them. Warning: if you are a small creature he may try to attack or eat you... unless you speak up to say who you are!]
wandthief: (Default)

I am still awaiting replies to my requests. I will keep asking until I get some kind of answer.
wandthief: (Bored)
Dear Admiral, I wish to be sent back to my world.

People here are quick to threaten and attack but if I offer help of any form - and I have numerous times - they either reject it or ignore it. I understand about learning patience but they prefer others suffer prolonged illness or injury instead of taking some extra help? Isn't that just simple cruelty?

I am sure you can pick and choose what powers to return to me. If I could perform simple healing spells and make healing potions then I feel I could be of a great help to the overstressed infirmary staff. However, as they are all ignoring me - unless it is to insult or threaten - then I come directly to you, since I am currently wardenless.

If the answer is no then you, dear Admiral, are as cruel as the rest and do like to see people suffering here. That would not surprise many of us here.

So, I wish my basic healing powers returned or send me back to my home.

I completely understand that this is not an ultimatum considering you will likely say NO to both - but then they had better not expect any sympathy from me if they complain again that people are hurt and dying and they can't cope when it can be fixed more easily in the aftermath with a little magic.

So everybody is back safe and sound - well, mostly - and you'll all be fine again within a week. That is the way of this place. I am surprised people just don't accept that.

And besides one possibly cowardly act none of you followed through on your idle threats. How disappointing.

To the Infirmary staff: I hear that Snape is no longer with us so I would like to offer my potion-making skills, if you have need of them.

Doctor [Five], are you feeling any better?

I was rather enjoying the quieter atmosphere around here but now so many people are back.

Too many people since I was jostled on the stairs and fell - I wouldn't like to think any of you would have caused such a nasty accident. I could have broken something.

Luckily no broken bones this time, although I have some quite impressive bruising which makes things uncomfortable. Go on and laugh. I'm sure that some of you will.

Thank you, Rex, for assisting me back to my room.

[Rex tripped Gellert down the stairs then helped him out afterwards - so Gellert isn't certain who did it. This happened sometime between Rex's return from port and his visit to the Infirmary to see McCullen. If you want to say you happened to be in the group on the stairs (or even fake!claim to be the one who tripped him), please go ahead.]
wandthief: (Amused)
I forgot how much fun taunting others could be. Being a tired, helpless old man is getting me nowhere in the sympathy stakes and I have no reason to pretend to be so understanding any longer. So I may as well be myself again.

Clearly I was correct in my beliefs that Muggles are far inferior to wizards. You cannot seem to do very much without magic - or not very efficiently, at least. If not for your own recent failings the ultimate proof is my current non-magical condition. So all I can do is pity you that you are stuck that way when I at some point will regain my true powers.

Any other demons or otherwise supernatural beings here... Don't try to defend them. You have power and they have not. I'm sure you've been glad of that at some time or other if you have not outright used that power against them.

Now Hix is gone do the rest of you want a notorious dark wizard roaming around unwatched and unchecked? Any volunteers to amuse me by attempting to be my temporary warden?

Admiral, I want my powers returned to me as they were when I arrived. That's only fair.

[Private to Arthas and Frostmourne]

Did you frighten Hix that much that he had to flee?

So if time was normal here I would be 116 today, June 13th.

I know it's not voluntary but I'm quitting my 'job' at the library. I'm simply not turning up anymore. It's not as if I can be punished any further by my refusal to work. I'm tired of playing nice and not getting anywhere for it. I feel so useless here and it's not a feeling I'm enjoying.
