Give me the child.
Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered,
I have fought my way here
to the castle beyond the Goblin City
to take back the child that you have stolen,
for my will is as strong as yours,
and my kingdom is as great.

You have no power over me.

04.08 "Stop making me think. I'm believing over here." - Harry Dresden, Wizard

There were times after Sarah was returned to her own time and place, unable to get back to the Hogwarts she knew, that the outside world felt oppressive to her. It seemed as if its very existence questioned her experiences, held its reality up to the fantasy her experiences were generally thought to be, and made a judgment upon it. Logic and fact made no room for magic and imagination and thinking of only the latter was termed foolish for an adult. To her, it felt as though the world was requesting her to think about these fanciful things until she had simply thought them right out of the real qualities they possessed.

She refused to do so.Collapse )

79. "Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were, but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today" ~ Christina Aguilera

On Mother's Day this year, I didn't even think of my own mother once. Instead, I thought about my best friend, Lily, a lot. Seems odd, except if you know the history behind it and that history is that she was more a mother to me in almost nine months than my own mother was in nineteen years.

I still remember the first time we met – even then she taught me. Oh, it wasn't just about her encouragement in getting a charm right that I hadn't been able to master before that, it was that she taught me the first of many lessons about believing in myself. You think a stranger wouldn't be able to accomplish that in one afternoon by a lake, but she did by simply telling me that I was right for the house I had been sorted into and, even more, that I had potential. That made me realize perhaps maybe I was right for Hogwarts itself.

She was so insightful, though you would likely never hear her saying anything but the opposite.Collapse )

Hi, I'm Sarah Williams.

I'm nineteen and currently a college student at Columbia University, studying theatre so someday I can become an actress. It was my dream for a long time to be able to make a living expressing myself through the roles I took, as I've always had what most would call a rich fantasy life. I'm making it my dream again.

But, that's not really what you wanted to hear about, right? At least, that's never been the case in my experience. What people really want to hear about is the less ordinary events of my life, like the Labyrinth. I... well, I wished my brother away to the Goblin King when I was fifteen. I had to solve his Labyrinth to defeat him and win my brother back. Though you might want to deny it and call me crazy – you wouldn't be the first - he does exist and he does take children that are wished away so he can turn them into goblins. And no, he's not the king of the Gringott's goblins, which was a relief to me when I found out there were goblins there.

Gringotts? A bank, a wizarding one run by goblins who are far smarter than the ones Jareth rules over. I know about this bank, and more, because I'm a witch, one who attended a magic school called Hogwarts... at least, I was a witch, before I likely became popcorn. Yes, popcorn. Sometimes it happens to people there but I never knew what really happened to those popcorned until now. I woke up one day and found myself back at home, which was shocking but it wasn't as shocking as what I soon discovered. I can't get back there. Believe me, I've tried. So, now I'm in the process of picking up my old life again.

As part of my struggle in the Labyrinth, I was drugged and tricked into looking into one of Jareth's magic crystal balls. I haven't told many what was in that crystal ball dream, because most people forget that dreams aren't literal and I refuse to be judged on what was in there. To me, this was no different than a dream in bed asleep, because it was a dream. It wasn't real. In it, I was in a ballroom with a masquerade going on. Everyone in it was dressed and masked, except me. I was dressed beautifully, but I didn't have a mask. I spent part of it searching the crowds, looking for something, while those masked people stared and even seemed to leer. Eventually, an unmasked person emerged - which was Jareth, of course, who had been masked to that point - and we danced, until it didn't feel right and I tore myself from his arms and the crowd and broke the crystal, freeing myself.

To most, it sounds simple, so like a princess finding her prince. But it's not cut and dried - to me, the dream wasn't that at all, despite my tendency to dream and act. All those people were masked, no matter how beautifully dressed, and that was much like I viewed life. People were essentially concealed and in some ways unapproachable because they hid behind the masks they wore and never took them off. Even my mom was like that, hiding behind her status and life.

I was searching for someone who didn't wear a mask, in theory. In real life, someone who was willing to drop those shields and defenses and let me in, since I am like that. Despite forcing myself to be otherwise to keep people from calling me crazy because of the Labyrinth or stopping myself from getting into danger while at Hogwarts, I am still shockingly open and by nature not a mask-wearer, just like I didn't have a mask in the dream.

I want to be let in, as simple as that.

A fictional character writes a fic, wtf?Collapse )

((This is part of a larger storyline within the HH universe that involved the characters knowing about fanfiction. This particular piece was part of a brief bit of RP where Sarah writes a fic to send to a friend.))
