    Animal Pact
    Private Thread 
    This wasn't the first time where Ellory thought that becoming an animagus would be neat. She'd always liked Transfiguration at Hogwarts and she had been intrigued by the subject since her third year. She had never been a particularly ambitious or determined student, however, so she never once set on the task of becoming one.

    The thought had resurfaced recently. After her eventful end of the summer, Ellory was an emotional mess. She needed something to occupy her mind with. Something to feel passionate about.

    "-and now I wait." Miss Elsie Beauregard had been the librarian who'd assisted her on her previous visit. Ellory was told that she needed to contact the Ministry of Magic to gain access to all of the textbooks relating to the subject.

    "Say, Elsie," Ellory continued. She was friendly with the girl, hence the familiarity. They were both Gryffindors and had only been a year apart at Hogwarts. Besides, Ellory had served as Head Girl alongside Elsie's brother, Harvey. She and Harvey had been good friends at school, though they'd fallen out of touch after their graduation, as it often happened. "What animal do you think you'll turn into?"

    @Elsie Beauregard
    Elsie had always toyed with the idea of studying transfiguration a little further into maybe becoming an animagus, but honestly she never thought she'd actually go through with it. It wasn't until Ellory Pendergast approached her with an interest in the process that Elsie thought she might actually give it a try. Her fellow Gryffindor, though not somebody she was overly close with, was certainly easy to be around, which was always a bonus in Elsie's book. Harvey had always spoken highly of her as well, considering they were heads together their final year at school.

    Ellory had needed a starting off point, so Elsie had done a little research on how to begin the process. It seemed that there was some documentation for the ministry needed to access the necessary textbooks. She was going to approach Mr. Lovegood about it herself now as well, but perhaps since it was also a personal project her superior might not be so against it. Els could only hope!

    "I know, I still need to speak to Mr. Lovegood about a few more things." They had time though, it was a long process to begin with, a few more days of getting everything in order wouldn't be so bad! "I haven't any idea." Elsie had thought about it though. Her patronus was a tiny little doormouse, which seemed appropriate but she always wondered if it would be different. "Do you think it's always the same as our patronus?"

    Ellory had never managed to produce a Patronus. It was a sour spot for her. She'd always prided herself on being a happy and positive person and yet she'd failed to cast the one spell that needed those traits. It had been a great drop to her self-esteem as a witch, too.

    "Patronus forms can change, in rare instances, so I'd say not necessarily?" Ellory suggested. "I'd say that it would still be a similar animal, rather than something completely different. Can you produce a patronus?"

    She wouldn't be surprised if she could. Miss Elsie had always struck her as very clever an capable!
    "Oh, that's true." Elsie hadn't thought of that. Her patronus had taken a lot of work on her part to finally get to work correctly, so it had yet to change, though she wasn't sure it even would. It wasn't anything particularly... grand, just a little dormouse, though it was fitting, she supposed.

    With that knowledge she also thought it would be a poor form, so small! "I almost hope for something that can fly." She said it wistfully, though it was true. "If it matches my patronus, I'll be a mouse." A creature that could fly though, that would be so freeing, wouldn't it? "What do you think you'll be?" Els turned the question back on her co-conspirator as she stacked another book on their table that could possibly be of use.
