when i moved house 2 months ago I thought getting the internet sorted would be an easy process...I was wrong!
I have a very demmanding job with very long hours and so not a lot of time to sort it and the providers dont exactly make that easy.
Anyway it will hopefully be up soon.....
if problems still occur I may take to uploading posts at work in my lunch hour like im making this post now.
Sian has evolved so much and I feel like her story has been lived over and over but none of it has been seen by you lot!
I've even managed to create an alrternate ending for it...or alternate middle/end....lots more artwork etc.
While I'm here let me give you a little tit-bit as it were....
Sian Helen Scabbard was born to parents Glyn and Kathleen Scabbard.
He was a wizard, from a pureblood Ravenclaw line and his wife was a strongwilled scottish seamstress, and a muggle.
They lived happily for several years, Sian's mother fully intrigued by wizarding culture and was close to her daughter.
They would sit together and talk about what subjects Sian would study at Hogwarts compared to those her father had studied.
He worked from home as a broomstick repairman, and taught Sian to fly them.
Sian's whole wizarding family had been in Ravenclaw and her father was certain she would end up there too, her mother reminded her often not to study too hard when she got to Hogwarts.
When Death Eater attacks became more frequent and Sian was still young, only 8 when the war was at its worst.
Her father knew her family was in danger because of his muggle wife and his half-blood daughter, some of the more fanatical Death Eaters were targeting families where a pureblood had married a muggle.
It happened one night, a group of Death Eaters lead by Bellatrix Lestrange attacked the Scabbard family home.
Knowing what would happen Kathleen and Glyn argued furiously, and Kathleen insisted that he take Sian to saftey, he was a wizard and his magic could protect her far better than she could - it broke his heart but as Lestrange broke through the front door Glyn apparated away with Sian in his arms and only a few posessions.
Glyn later learnt that Bellatrix had killed his wife. He never forgave himself for leaving her.
When he apparated away he fled to the first place that came to his mind....the path to Hogwarts school, as close as one could get by apparation anyway.
And he carried Sian all the way up to the school, where Hagrid found him looking dazed.
Dumbledore met with him and sent them to a safe house while a more permenant arrangement could be made.
At the safe house there were Order of the Phoenix memebers milling around, talking, joking and planning.
Sian met a young couple there who had a small baby boy, the woman was very nice to her and stopped her from being scared.
A short while after Sian and her father were relocated to a small muggle town celebration broke out across the country...Voldemort had fallen, and Sian soon found out that the nice couple she had met had been killed and their little boy was the one who had saved them all.
Three years later Sian was standing on the platform 9 and three quarters with her Father amazed and in awe.
She became distracted by an arguement a girl was having with her parents, the girl's hair was changing colour from pink to red and Sian gasped.
The girls found themselves being bundled onto the train at the same time while their panicking parents waved goodbye, the girls laughed and moved to a free compartment. They chatted and the girl with the hair that changed colour introduced her self as Nymphadora Tonks ( " but DONT call me Nymphadora! I hate it! just Tonks.")
After giggling away on the train and sharing the war stories of their parents the girls found themselves fast friends and when the sorting began they hoped they would be placed in the same house.
When Sian sat on the stool, the strangest thing happened - she had thought the shout of " Ravenclaw" was a forgone conclusion but instead the hat spoke to her and said, " sorry my dear, wrong guess," then the word "GRYFFINDOR!" rand out and a little shocked she hopped off the stool and joined the Gryffindor table.
n.b this is not part of the tale as such, just an intro to who Sian is, even though its only her beginning and there is much more to be told.
