The Witch's Apprentice, Ch. 4 - A Promise Kept
The Butcher family farmhouse went silent just after the Witch of the Woods emerged from Arthur’s shadow, her slender, statuesque form towering over them all and her long onyx hair fanning out behind her like a cape in the wind, seemingly under its own power. Everyone’s eyes were fixed on the Witch, faces white with shock.
 
“Now that your question has been answered,” the Witch asked Summer Butcher with hooded eyes closed and a gentle smile on her lips, “may you be so kind as to show me to the patient?”
 
Pulling in her son into her embrace even more tightly, Summer snarled at the Witch, “Don’t come any closer,” shuddering in fear even as she bared her teeth, her worn, tear-stained face contorted into a scowl of rage. “Leave this house now.”
 
The Witch cocked her head to the side, seemingly perplexed by the demand, before saying, “Well, I can hardly heal what ails your daughter if I’m no

The Witch's Apprentice, Ch. 3: Forging of the Pact
The sun had not even begun to peek over the horizon as Summer Butcher tiredly got up from her seat next to Morgan’s bedroom door and yawned, having not so much as stood up from her chair since the last time she took over the shift from her son hours ago.
“Harold dear,” she yawned as she brushed her dishevelled graying hair out of her eyes, not even sure if her husband was even awake. “Would you mind taking watch now? I’m starting to get a bit drowsy.”
“S’alright,” Melion yawned as he came around the nearby corner in the hallway, his black, mane-like beard unbraided and almost scraping his head on the ceiling with his mountainous height. “No need to bother ‘im, I can take over if ye want tae get some shut eye.”
“Out of the question,” Harold said sternly as he came down the hall in his bedrobe, only barely stifling a yawn and squinting to see in the dim light even as he hurriedly put his glasses on.

The Witch's Apprentice, Ch. 2: Tea with the Witch
Arthur was flabbergasted. After finding himself lost in the darkest depths of the forest and nearly being eaten in his search for the Witch of the Woods, here she was before him, having apparently just stumbled on him and his predicament by mere chance, and if that were not surreal enough of an experience, he had just agreed to have tea with her.
And the night was still young.
“Well?” the Witch asked as she began to lead the way through her forest. “Are you not going to walk with me? You may become lost again if you stay behind, and it would be such a disappointment if my guest were to lose his way and become another beast’s prey before I had the chance to entertain.”
“Oh, right!” Arthur said nervously as he got moving and trailed behind the Witch as she calmly strolled through the forest hollow, but made sure to keep his distance. After all, this woman had effortlessly slain a full grown basilisk and acted as if it were no more worth mentionin

Chapter Four
I made it to class just as the bell rang. Khulan’s dispute with Hill during breakfast had gotten a bit too heated, so Mei and I lost a bit of time getting them to calm down and stick to their original plan of settling it at the dueling club later. If those two actually ended up exchanging blows right in the middle of the dining hall, someone would have ended up calling campus security, and… well, I don’t like talking about those guys, so for now let’s just say that even in a university where most programs spit in the face of everything man knew about physics less than a decade ago, and where a good chunk of your classmates are supernatural horrors from beyond the world we know… even somewhere like that, no one wanted to be around when they arrived on the scene…
But glad as I was that we all dodged that particular bullet, it was time for class, so once I entered the gymnasium where this particular program was taught, I took a seat in the

Chapter Three
One thing I should probably get out of the way: Crowley University is huge.
I had a rough idea that I could get lost in this place when I first saw the pictures on the school website and brochures back in high school, but even now, when I’ve been living on campus for a whole month, I could still easily get lost in this place. I remember reading Harry Potter as a kid (and as an adult… okay, I read one of the books yesterday) and how labyrinthine and impossible to navigate Hogwarts was described as in the first book. But now, I can say with full confidence that Hogwarts has nothing on Crowley U.
They just couldn’t stop at building a school campus extending well over a mile, couldn’t they? No, obviously building a university for supernatural studies was the perfect opportunity to test out non-Euclidian architecture! This has the happy result of making the school a complete labyrinth of corridors and stairwells that look like something out of an M.C. E

Chapter Three
In Which a Unicorn Bails Caligula Out of Jail
As Officer Nikolaev escorted him down the hallways of the police station, Caligula began to feel tenser and tenser. What did the police captain want to see him for? It was clear when he was arrested that the police already had him on file. Surely there wasn't anything they needed to know about him that they didn't already know.
Then Caligula remembered. The police's knowledge of him probably came from his university records, so they wouldn't have known about his staff. Chances are they wouldn’t respond well to his explanation of how it came into his possession, assuming they believed him at all. The circumstances in which it was made for him were… unique, to say the least, and not even Caligula knew all the details of why his old mentor made it for him. And while some magical items could be purchased at any convenience store without a licence, something of that staff’s grade was certainly not one of them.

Chapter Two
In Which Caligula Becomes Cellmates With a Druid.
This was not turning out to be the best day in Caligula's life. In fact, it probably ranked somewhere in the bottom ten, which was an impressive achievement, considering how many of those days fell into the 'too much information' category.
As he sat moping in an anti-magic prison cell, he had time to reflect on his recent mistakes. Blasting an undercover police officer in the chest and running away would probably come back to bite him in the ass, considering harmful misuse of magic, especially against an officer of the law, was a definite strike against him if he ever applied for a licence in the future.
Ever since the Magical Revolution ushered in a new age of magical understanding in the late 1700s, the criminal element of many societies had begun recruiting magical beings and utilizing the arcane arts themselves to further their crimes. With such widespread criminal use of magic quickly becoming problematic for law enforc

Chapter One
In Which a Wizard Gets Arrested
Caligula Ragnarok did not want to be here. This street had quite the reputation in Toronto for being a bad part of town, where criminals and lowlifes of all stripes came to lay low. Anyone who came here with a full wallet and without some kind of firepower was just asking for trouble. And yet here he was, at the door of a run-down apartment building he suspected was probably a crack house.
Surely, this was not the place for a novice wizard to be at sundown. And certainly not the place one would expect to find a wizard fully qualified to train him. But at the end of the day, he wasn't going to find many others who were going to agree to train a Toronto University of Wizardry dropout.
Not that he thought he should have been expelled to begin with. A botched portal spell was hardly worth all the commotion, he believed. Besides, it wasn't like he meant to summon that eldritch horror. But half a destroyed campus and a monumentally po

The Seven Autobots Ch1
Centuries have passed since the Great War between the Autobot Commonwealth and the Decepticon Empire, the two primary factions of the robotic Transformer race, rocked the planet Cybertron. Sentinel Prime and his Autobots were victorious, and the Decepticons were driven off of Cybertron. With the days of ceaseless war ended, Cybertron's High Council was restored and the work of rebuilding could begin. Reforms were put in place to make Cybertron a functioning peacetime society, restoring commerce between city-states but limiting their military power, as well as establishing colonies on other worlds in the Hadean System and beyond. Within decades of reconstruction, all was peaceful on Cybertron… for the wealthy, that is.
While reducing the size of the individual city-state's armies did do well to prevent future civil wars on Cybertron, it also had the unfortunate side effect of leaving many warrior class Autobots unemployed. The new caste system put in place by Sentinel Prime's H

Interests

Just a while ago, I saw :icongogomechy: and :iconsamarkana: and :icondetective-barricade: do that OC questionnaire in their journals, and I thought, "Hey, that looks fun!" Sure, no one's tagged me to do it, but rules are dumb anyway. :P

So anyway, since it's the only story I've actually bothered to update for a while, here's some from the cast of The Witch's Apprentice. Starting with the Witch of the Woods herself!

1. What is your name? And what is your opinion of it?

I have been called many names over the countless centuries mortals have known of me, but these days they do not call me much other than simply, "the Witch of the Woods." It's a bit obvious for my tastes, but I'll admit it has a certain ring to it.

2. What are some names you would give your children (even if you don't want any)?

The Witch gives a sly grin to the interviewer, as she coyly says, Oh, so I don't have any yet, do I?

3. What's the best feeling in the world? And what's the worst?  

Nothing makes me happier more than knowing those I have met, whether for good or ill, ultimately learned from the experience and have grown better for it. I can be a harsh teacher for sure, but I believe even the most painful lessons can do a learner a world of good. That is also why it pains me so when those who seek my help and make a mistake in doing so learn nothing.

4. Best and worst food?

If one counts beverages in such a category, then I can name only tea as my favourite, particularly green teas with honey and lemon. If you speak of food in its strictest sense, I do have a certain fondness for pumpkin and mushrooms.

As for my least favourite, again if beverages count, I simply cannot stand beer and ale. How Melion has grown so fond of guzzling down such putrid liquids, I may never know. But, again, if we are
not counting beverages, I could never get myself to enjoy human flesh, in spite of what an oddly large number of people assume of me. So many in fact that when I settled down to start this business, I made a point to reassure uneasy customers of that fact. Although I had to stop bringing it up after a while, since it strangely had the opposite effect. I wonder why that is?

5. Do you like animals?

Well, of course. I would not enjoy living in a forest so much if I didn't have a fondness for the beasts of this world, after all. In fact, most of the time I even prefer animal company to the human kind. Of course, there are times when I find a depressing lack of the former in favour of the latter, but with my particular talents, such circumstances can be easily... mended. 

Just as the Witch begins to ready herself for the next question, she has a moment of epiphany and adds, Please don't tell Arthur I said that. The boy is uneasy enough around me as it is, and given recent developments, the sooner he can be at ease around me, the better. Better he not have more reason to walk on eggshells around here. But given how much use I have for his services, I likely would not change his form even if the whim came to me.

...Or at least not permanently, anyway.

6. Are you a Marysue / Garystu?

Ah yes, the fallacious form of literary criticism that falsely equates a character's narrative merit with an arbitrary power limit. How quaint of you to ask.

7. Are you a thrill-seeker/adventurer, or do you prefer the safe and familiar?

I mostly enjoy staying in my own neck of the woods, if you will pardon the pun, but that is not to say I dislike travelling. Occasionally the demand for my services will require me to travel far to conduct my business, but I'm sure you will read all about it when this Maple fellow finally chronicles more of Arthur's life as my servant. (Hey, I'm working on it! - MS)

8. Most embarrassing situation you can imagine?

Being tricked by a customer into providing my services without them upholding their end of the bargain. No such customers have succeeded yet, but that does not stop more still from trying. I have heard tell of djinn and devils falling for such chicanery though, so it would behoove me not to grow complacent with such things.

9. What compliment would make you the happiest?

Oh my dear, flattery will get you nowhere! All joking aside however, I do like it when people say they enjoy my tea or my cooking. Sometimes customers will even commend the taste of my potions, and I rarely ever take flavour into account when making them, so that's always a nice surprise. 

Aside from that, I would like to hear an old customer tell me one day that their experiences with me, good or bad, taught them a lesson that allowed them to live their lives for the better. 

10. What supposed compliment would you take the most offense at?

As far as specific compliments go, "You look good for your age." I mean, really? I know I'm older than most historical records can measure, but have you ever met an immortal who actually looks like their chronological age? We all look good for our age, thank you, so please try to think of a better compliment! 

As for situational compliments, I rather dislike any attempts to butter me up with flattery for preferential treatment, which is a sadly common occurrence in my business. If I had a gold piece for every customer who resorted to flattery to weasel their way out of my requested payment, I would have enough for a dragon to sleep on!

11. Are you a realist, optimist, pessimist, idealist, cynic or opportunist?

A realist, naturally. I've spent too long seeing how this world works to see it any better or worse than exactly how it is, and I encourage others to do the same.

12. What's your MBTI?

I believe my result on such a test would be ISTJ.

13. What is your zodiac (and do you identify with it)?

I honestly have no idea. I was born long before the constellations were even named, and I certainly don't remember that far back well enough to recall which stars were in the sky at the time. Besides, I doubt you would recognise the constellations that can be viewed from my world, anyway. 

14. What is your fashion sense or preferred style?

I do enjoy black clothing, especially in the form of long dresses. I also have a fondness for detached sleeves. In terms of the fashion of your own world, I like your "Gothic" fashions quite appealing. I shall have to try such styles for myself if I ever visit.

15. What's your favourite quote?

"A witch ought never be frightened in the darkest forest... because she should be sure in her soul that the most terrifying thing in her forest was her."

Clearly this Sir Terry Pratchett understood witches far better than many mortals I have met. A shame I never had the pleasure of meeting him.

16. What's the worst injury you've taken?

Would you really like to know? Interesting. I could tell you that I have lost my head or my heart one day and walked away in no worse health than before. Or perhaps I have encountered no force that can injure me. Which would you believe... and which would be the more comforting answer from the being sitting here in front of you?

17. One random fact about you.

While I rarely accept mortal currency for my services, there is a certain circumstance in which I do. Sometimes, far more often than I'd like, some fool will come to me for the most meagre of services. The kind they could easily accomplish for themselves if they put their minds to it. In such cases I simply give them a placebo and tell them I gave them the power to do what they asked me for and just take the lowest sum they can offer. Given how frustratingly a common occurrence this is, these payments add up so much over time that I am rarely low on funds in those rare instances that I actually need money for something. 

And even if that were not the case, I still have my earnings from the line of work I did prior to my current business...
 (Me, foreshadow something in this Q&A? Surely you jest! ;P - MS)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, that was the Witch of the Woods, everybody! Thank you all for reading, and we'll see you- wait, why is that interviewer looking at me? Uh... look, I'd love to, but I really have to... HAVE YOU MET MY FRIEND ARTHUR?! *Throws Arthur in front of the interviewer and runs away*
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. What is your name? And what is your opinion of it?
Oh, right! I'm Arthur Butcher. It sounds like a normal enough name, but I was actually named after an ancient king of my homeland of Albion, so that's pretty cool.

2. What are some names you would give your children? (even if you don't want any)

Huh. You know, I've never really thought of it before. I guess since I'm named after King Arthur, maybe I'd name my kids after the knights and ladies of his court in the old stories or something?

3. What's the best feeling in the world? And what's the worst?  

The best feeling is when I can make a difference to the people I care about. The worst is when those same people need me, and there's nothing I can do to help them. Unfortunately, I've been feeling a lot of the latter lately.

4. Best and worst food?

I actually really like my green vegetables. I know those aren't the kind of foods most people prefer, but I love them anyway. In fact, since we were kids, I'd actually let Morgan sneak her veggies onto my plate when Ma wasn't looking. Other than that, I've always enjoyed dishes that mix meat and rice whenever we could afford them.

As for my least favourite, again this is kind of unusual, but I've never liked most sweet foods, other than a bit of honey and sugar in tea or stuff like that, and even then only in small amounts. In fact, the only times I've ever gone out of my way to get candy or other sweets is when I've bought them for my sister, if I could afford it.

5. Do you like animals?

Well, I've lived on a farm all my life, so I'd be pretty miserable if I didn't.

6. Are you a Marysue / Garystu?

I... don't know what those are. They sound like names, but I just said my name is Arthur, didn't I? (What, you expected him to know about idiot Internet buzzwords? He's from a medieval fantasy world, give him a break! -MS)

7. Are you a thrill-seeker/adventurer, or do you prefer the safe and familiar?

I've always been interested in other lands beyond Albion, but until recently I'd long since accepted that I would be tending our farm for the rest of my life. I mean, I was never uncomfortable with that prospect, and I've been content with just reading about far off lands and hearing tales about them from Uncle Melion and any foreigners that stop by the local bar.

After a drawn out sigh, Arthur concludes, In fact, with everything that's happened recently, I think I'm going to miss my familiar, predictable life back at the farm.

8. Most embarrassing situation you can imagine?

Horrendously screwing up something I've done right a thousand times already. I mean, failing at something I've never done before isn't pleasant, but I at least have the excuse of being new at it. But if I messed up milking the cows or weeding the garden back home? Now that would be horrible!

9. What compliment would make you the happiest?

Honestly? Nothing makes me happier than just telling me that what I did helped people when they needed it. Especially from my family.

10. What supposed compliment would you take the most offense at?

"Well, you did your best." I know that's supposed to be reassuring, but all it does is remind me that I still failed. That I still let people down...

11. Are you a realist, optimist, pessimist, idealist, cynic or opportunist?

I like to think I'm an optimist. I like to believe that as bad as things get, there's always hope that they'll get better, even if you have to make them better yourself.

12. What's your MBTI?

I'm sorry, my what? Is this like that "Mary Stu" thing?

The interviewer graciously hands Arthur a card explaining the MBTI test.

Oh, thank you! Now let's see... Huh, looks like I'm an ISFJ. That's good, right?

13. What is your zodiac (and do you identify with it)?

I don't know if you have the same zodiac where you're from, but I was born under the sign of the Firekeeper in the cycle of the Ox. I think the Firekeeper means someone is dependable and hard-working, and being born under the Ox usually means someone is honest and content with the work they're given, if a bit stubborn. I certainly hope I have most of those qualities... but considering I just recently charged into a monster-infested forest when everyone told me not to, it's pretty much a given I have that last one.

14. What is your fashion sense or preferred style?

Honestly, since my family isn't all that wealthy, none of us here can usually afford clothes that aren't strictly functional. So my wardrobe rarely gets more varied than tunics and trousers, except a cloak or coat when it's cold or rainy, or a hat when it's hot and sunny out.

15. What's your favourite quote?

"If something bad happens, and you can't do anything about it, but you can't do nothing, what do you do? You do what you can."

16. What's the worst injury you've taken?

Once I was working in our barn's upper floor and I fell and broke my arm. It was the most painful thing I'd ever felt and I couldn't do any work for almost a month. Luckily I was all healed up before harvest that year, but the family still lost a lot of work because I wasn't more careful.

17. One random fact about you.

I'm actually the best cook in our house. Maybe it's because I've always been the first one to offer to help with any job that needs doing, including Ma's cooking, but eventually I picked up enough from her that everyone prefers it when I cook dinner. Ma's still great at it of course (I'm only as good as my teacher, after all), and Pa's okay at it when he needs to fix up a meal for everybody, but Uncle Melion's culinary skills are limited to roasting wild game and fish over a campfire and gathering fruits and nuts, and don't her Morgan I said this, but every time she says she wants to cook, I start wondering if the pigs will be willing to share their slop with me instead.

*Gets approached by the interviewer again*
 YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE!!!!! *books it past Melion, who turns toward the interviewer and shrugs after taking a swig of ale*
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. What is your name? And what is your opinion of it?

Name's Melion. Well, that's wot Harry decided to call me once he took me into his family. Wargs don't really have "names" so much as we r'member wot sommun' smells like. I 'spose it's as good a name as any.

2. What are some names you would give your children? (even if you don't want any)

Never thought of it. Mind ye, I prolly already have loads of kids of me own, but I don' know where any of 'em are.

3. What's the best feeling in the world? And what's the worst?  

Best feeling's prolly spending time with the pack. I travel on me own a lot, so it's always great to see Harry, Summer and the kids again.

Or being drunk. Always like that, too.

Worst feeling's when I'm reminded of me old life, and how I gave it all away. Why d'ye think I got so fond of ale? *takes another swig*

4. Best and worst food?

Mebbe it's the wolf still in me, but nothing beats meat right off the bone! Used to like it bloody, until Harry showed me what cooked meat's like.

Also, ale.

Worst food's gotta be green veggies. I know Harry and the rest put a lot of work into growin' the stuff, but I just can't stand 'em! Good thing Arty'll eat 'em up whenever I sneak them on his plate. Or when I sneak 'em onto Morgan's plate.

5. Do you like animals?

Course I do. They're delicious!

6. Are you a Marysue / Garystu?

I dunno wot those are. I might have bedded a Mary or a Sue once. (The more you ask my characters that, the more I'm taking the piss. -MS)

7. Are you a thrill-seeker/adventurer, or do you prefer the safe and familiar?

Ha! I don' roam the land huntin' monsters 'cause I wanted a desk job!

8. Most embarrassing situation you can imagine?

After all the mighty beasts ah've felled, ah'd be mighty embarassed if summun' hired me t' take care of sumthin' measly like their house's rat problem. Even more so if I took da job and failed miserably.   

9. What compliment would make you the happiest?

Summun tellin' me I'm like family t' them. To a wolf, nuttin's more important than bein' part a the pack.

10. What supposed compliment would you take the most offense at?

Anytin' dat involves "being one of da good ones" of whatever group people want to lump me in with. Even ingnorin' how bigoted dose remarks are, every time I hear em', all I really hear is, "as much good as ye do, yer still an outcast, an outsider... not one of da pack."

11. Are you a realist, optimist, pessimist, idealist, cynic or opportunist?

Prolly a realist. I take the world as it is. Not much point in hopin' things get better or fearin' they'll get worse since it won' change any of it.

12. What's your MBTI?

Well, according to this here card Arty left here, I'd be an ESTP. Dunno wot good that does does me, though. (Huh. Wonder why all my characters score Sensing? -MS)

13. What is your zodiac (and do you identify with it)?

Can't say for sure, since I don' know my real birthday. Wargs don' really keep track of those things, or wot stars are in the sky when we're born. But Harry and the fam celebrate me birthday on the day we met, which I've bin told is under the sign of the Satyr, in the cycle of the Hound. 'Parrently the Satyr makes me wild, spontaneous and merry, an' the Hound means ah'm honest, loyal an' straightforward. People tell me that fits me pretty well, and that's good enough fer me.

14. What is your fashion sense or preferred style?

Look lad, in me line of work, ye can only afford tae wear two kinds of clothes. The kind that keeps the weather from killing ye, and the kind that keeps yer quarry from killing ye.

15. What's your favourite quote?

"Family means no one gets left behind."

Or something about ale.

16. What's the worst injury you've taken?

Trust me, after ye get bitten, mauled, stung, gored, trampled, pulverised and wot have ye by ev'ry beast that roams the land, ye start to lose count of these things. 

17. One random fact about you.

Ah'm actually a knight in da royal court of Albion, with a noble title an' an estate an' ev'rythin'. Well, I actually gave the estate away to an old mate for a good cause an' left 'em most of the money there to keep it goin'. Before that, I offered to share it wit' Harold an' Summer, but they made it clear they won' accept charity from family an' that they prefer life on the farm.

Sometimes, ah wish ah'd insisted they take it, wit' how much they're strugglin' to make ends meet lately. Especially with Morgan's sickness. If only ah'd convinced them to share in the estate, maybe ah'd have prevented Arty from making dat accursed bargain. But now we'll never know.

As the interview concludes, Melion sadly downs the rest of his ale bottle.

Huh. Didn't think I'd end this on such a downer when I started writing this. Oh well, this probably isn't the last time I'm doing this meme, so there's always next time. I had fun doing it, and I'm surprised how much I ended up learning a about my characters in the process. I'm not going to answer the questions myself this time, but there's always the next. 

That being said, I should probably get out of here before that damn interviewer finds me again, so...poof. v1.1
