THE INTERNATIONAL STATUTE OF TRANSPARENCY

"On this day, the thirteenth of June of the year two thousand and thirty four, in the spirit of honesty, safety and the equality of all mankind, the magical population and the non-magical population will no longer remain hidden from one another, but will be unified as one. Rather than withholding from one another, we today take a step toward a better future, as the union of two such extraordinary cultures and resources promises a betterment in quality of life for all. This statute applies to every living being that is capable of thinking and reasoning for itself. Either Discrimination or Deceptiveness in respect to the statute are both considered the highest form of noncompliance in all countries involved, and are punishable as treason. Every world leader, both magical and non-magical, have signed this statute in agreement that Transparency between the respective communities of the world is the best path toward knowledge and peace."

I think I'll try defying gravity <3
Gracelyn is the youngest of the VanDerberg siblings. She'll be attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as a muggle in the fall, as a fourth year. Until then, she's waiting not-so-patiently for ber big sister Gwen to return from her first year at the magical school. She's gone through a lot that most thirteen year old girls haven't, such as the loss of her brother - yet, at the same time, she's young and carefree and still trying to figure herself out.

Having a sister sucked. More specifically, having a sister that you didn’t have time to be annoyed with because they were always away sucked. Because while Gwen was technically the best sister alive compared to other sisters, Grace wasn’t the type of person to follow her around with undying love and gratitude - not since she was like four and didn’t know any better. She had dignity after all. And sibling conflict, in moderation, was a healthy thing. And it was really part of what made her sister her closest, most trusted confidante. Sometimes, you need someone to fight with - somebody that you know will still love you anyway when all is said and done, no matter what. Grace had been robbed of that. Because stupid Gwen had to go off to Hogwarts to be like stupid Hunter, who had also went off to Hogwarts. So obviously, she spent the first three days that Gwen was back from school giving her sister the silent treatment. Just for kicks. Because she missed having someone to give the silent treatment to, because Mum would just give her extra chores if she did that to her. And it was all Grace’s fault, sort of.

Her punishment for leaving. Three days - the three longest days of Grace’s life, because she really did miss Gwen more than she’d ever admit. But the cold shoulder had been necessary to make up for the horribly, almost sickly thoughtful surprise she’d put together for her sister tonight - Christmas Eve. Mum had cooperated at least, and had given Gwen a handful of chores in the house after dinner - allowing Grace to sneak down to the horse barn on her own. As she crept through the dark, the icy air bit at her skin and she pulled her heavy coat tighter around her small frame. It was definitely colder than planned, but she still felt a wistful smile tug at her lips as she drew closer to the barn. The warm glow of the entrance light against the darkness of the sky, the sparkling, untouched snow in the background, the stars. It was too picturesque - she’d probably paint it later. Entirely from memory, of course. But later. Now, she only had a little time before Gwen showed up.

Grace pulled her gloves and hat off as soon as she was in the barn, tossing them in a corner, and got to work. Thankfully, she’d remembered to blanket the horses in the morning, so they weren’t horribly dirty. She/tackled Midnight first, pulling him out of his stall and hooking him to the crossties in the aisle. Her hands expertly ran a brush over his winter-fluffed coat. ”Stand still” She warned Midnight as she approached him with his saddle. As usual, he sidestepped as she swung it over his back. She sighed and stepped with him, cinching it before he could throw it off center. ”I don’t know why Gwen likes you so much,” she said to him, rolling her eyes and moving on to her horse. She smiled when she reached Sparrow. The black and white mare was Grace’s preferred mount. In no time, Grace had Sparrow saddled as well - and just in time. Because she was just carrying the bucket of brushes back to the tack room when the barn door slid open and Gwen stepped inside. Midnight predictably perked his ears and whickered eagerly at the sight of her. Grace didn’t miss a step, but grinned broadly and spread her arms. Three days of not speaking, and Grace’s first word to her sister was ”Surprise!”

because i'm broken when i'm open and i don't feel like i am strong enough
Gwen is a muggle, and was brought up on a farm. She was homeschooled, but she did have friends in a nearby village. Mostly, though, she spent her time playing with her brothers, Jack and Hunter, and her younger sister Grace. Then Jack was killed. And shit happened. And she applied for Hogwarts when the statute was passed, having heard so much about Hogwarts from her brother.

Gwen had both been happily anticipating and dreading the return home. It would be weird to leave Hogwarts, but she didn't really think too much about that. She'd be back so quickly anyway. The dread didn't come from that. The dread came from the fact that she'd be seeing Grace again. Her sister had been silent for the most part, since Gwen went away to Hogwarts, leaving her as the only VanDerberg sibling left on their VanDerberg farm. Gwen knew she'd be insulted, but she'd expected a letter from her younger sister after a month or so, but the girl had surprised Gwen, showing she knew how to hold a grudge.

And Gwen hadn't been proven wrong. A hug hadn't been given when she returned, and Grace had been perfectly silent, and barely even looked at her, and when Gwen caught her looking at her, she would always look away. Gwen honestly did feel like rubbish for leaving her sister behind for so long, and it was hard for Gwen too, but she would be leaving for Hogwarts soon, and she wanted to talk and hang out with Grace, not waste their remaining time together. So when Grace left the kitchen after their late night snack, and their mother had Gwen do chores, Gwen wasn't going to deny that she wanted to tell mom to piss off and let Gwen make it up to Grace. But mom wasn't having it, and kept getting Gwen to do the chores that would normally take a second, and then have her do three more. But finally, she couldn't keep Gwen in the work zone longer. It was Christmas Eve, and Gwen wasn't having more of Grace's silent treatment. So she headed with purpose to the stable and opened the door, only to find Grace's face break into a smile, and say surprise.

It took Gwen a moment, but no more than that. They'd wasted too many moments already, so Gwen just beamed at her little sister and ran over to hug her. "Oh, thank you Grace!" she exclaimed happily before letting her sister go. Her hand automatically went to Midnight's mule, but her eyes were still on her sister. "You're the worst," she joked, before lightly shoving her with her hips. Then her attention finally turned to Midnight, who looked positively animated and ready to run. "Let's go have an awesome Midnight ride over the fields, yeah?" she said to the horse, winking as she said Midnight. She exited the stable and mounted Midnight as she got out, and then looked back at Grace and Sparrow. "Where do you wanna go?" Gwen knew where she'd like to go, but she also wanted to just spend time with Grace for a moment, for a little while. They could stop by Jack's grave later on, if Grace felt like it. If not, Gwen would just head up there on her own tomorrow. "What about the forest path?" she suggested as an afterthought. It was a beautiful forest, and the road was just big enough for two horses to trot side by side. And it'd give Gwen the opportunity to actually talk to Grace.
