Johann Leonie
Du bist meine neue Familie.

Johanna Leonie sighed a breath of relief to hear she was not alone. Not alone! That was so exciting. Hilda's brother sounded wonderful, simply because he was also German and there were few things in the world as exciting as this happy coincidence right now.

"That's wonderful!" she insisted, excited to meet the older student. She didn't say so, but she wondered whether he'd kept his notes from first year by chance. Might be helpful. When Hilda said he was in Aladren, it clicked that the man probably did not have heads in his house, but was a Head of House for one of the four Sonoran houses. "There's no way I'll be in Aladren. I'd rather do almost anything than read or something like that."

She wasn't quite ready to admit that she was also entirely ill-suited for academia. Oh, she could do magic. All the magical Zauberhexens were skilled magicians, and that was of little concern to Johanna Leonie who had demonstrated profound magical ability in the home grown magic of her family, but anything outside the small town she'd grown up in was much less comfortable.

When Hilda asked about siblings, Johanna Leonie felt the familiar pangs of homesickness. They'd started the moment she'd embarked on her trip to Sonora in the first place and they felt much less painful now. Homesickness would be her friend here too, but it wasn't so bad when it was the reminiscing kind.

"I have one brother," she said excitedly, glad to have found more in common than language. "His name is Friederike
Albert. He'll be here next year," she added, not pointing out that that was only the case if she didn't flunk out before then. At least it would be a fun adventure in the meantime. "He has hair a little bit like yours."

    Johanna Leonie. That was her best friend’s name. Very nice. Hilda liked it. Hilda liked her. She could only hope that lasted through the awkward phase of actually getting to know a person. She... more

        Friederike Albert. Obviously Johanna Leonie's parents liked double names as much as her own liked the letter H. "Hansel is younger than that," she told her new friend. "He won't be here for a while.... more

          "Awe, he must still be cute then!" Johanna Leonie laughed. "Friederike Albert is not cute anymore, he's a tornado. Maybe less of a tornado than I am but a tornado none the less." Johanna Leonie... more

            Hilda laughed and agreed, "Yes, Hans is very cute. If we get to be roommates, I will show you a picture." She supposed she could still show Johanna Leonie a picture even if they weren't roommates,... more

              Johanna Leonie was pretty sure Uncle Karl sounded like a badass. "It sounds like they'd get on great!" she said said, thinking how excited her parents would be to find a good source of venom and... more

                It didn't seem like Johanna Leonie thought snake raising and venom selling sounded suspicious, so that was a good turn of events. Still she wasn't going to hold her breath on any adult Hexenmeister... more

                  "I guess that's true," Johanna Leonie laughed, glad that Hilda seemed so easygoing. "Care of Magical Creatures is one of the ones I'm looking forward to the most!" she said, excited that she'd... more

                    Hilda nodded in agreement that Care of Magical Creatures was one of the more interesting classes she was looking forward to. Less so herbology, but she nodded anyway in support of Johanna Leonie's... more
                    • Ich mag dich auch!Johanna Leonie, Mon Jan 7 20:45
                      Johanna Leonie's eyes widened at the mention of so many other languages. Even if it was only a few students at the school who spoke these other languages, it felt good to know that there were others... more
