Beauty begins in the moment you decide to be yourself

on Thu Jun 29, 2017 2:37 pm
Growing up with a surname that is the almost synonym for evil wasn't that easy. For her whole life, Katya had just one goal: to be different and show people that she can be good despite the fact that she was Greyback.

It was easy while she was in Bulgaria because there she was just an ordinary child. No one asked questions she can't answer. But in London, and later in school, it was hard.
During the first year at school, she didn't have friends because no one wanted to have anything with Greyback child. But then, she joined Potter's Army and everything became easier.
She found friends and people finally saw that she is more than her last name. She found a way to prove to everyone that she can be the best version of herself.

That is why she was sitting now at the Leaky Cauldron waiting for Jack, the member of Order. It took a lot of time to find someone who is the member because they are really good at keeping secrets and hiding their selfs under the radar but she was better.
She found that woman and sent her an owl to meet her here.
Not she just needs to wait.

Jack could have probably written into the the Daily Prophet that she was switching over to the Death Eaters and she'd still get an owl from someone with questions about the Order of the Phoenix. It was to be expected. Her time leading Potter's Army and the Order had not exactly been kept a secret, and even as far removed as she was from the organization, she was still one of the more public figures related to it. So this was not exactly a surprise. A bit tiresome, certainly, but she had no one to blame since she kept showing up when the duty called.

The name, however, had given her pause. And not, perhaps, for the usual reasons. It wasn't a fear of the Greyback legacy that made her a little hesitant, but rather an intimacy to it that made her feel as though she was the least qualified person for the job. She had formed strong opinions on the family that were much more subjective than the usual prejudices aimed their way, and even though she had a certain level of respect, it still made things all the more complicated.

It was only the reminder that most of the Greyback siblings didn't even know about each other that finally propelled her towards the Leaky, tugging a beanie on over her unruly mop of red hair before disappearing into the night.

She stepped into the pub and was greeted by a chipper Dom Weasley. Jack signalled for a whiskey coke and cast her eyes about - only one woman there seemed to look on edge, was peering back at her to see if she was indeed the woman she was meeting. So Jack crossed to the woman and asked, "Are you Katya?"

(Okay so sorry it's short and probably full of mistakes but I wrote it on my phone and this was the best I could do)

To be honest, after some time, Katya became worried. Maybe the woman won't even come.
She couldn't blame her, though, since Greyback name brings some burden you can't just throw away.
All her life she tried to fix that, but sometimes it just isn't easy like it looks.

Her only hope was that this woman, Jack, would give her a chance to prove that she is more than her name.
After her second glass of wine someone finally approached her.
She looked at redhead woman and smiled.
"I am. Are you Jack?" she stood up unsure what she should do or say.
She read somewhere that the first impression is the most important and God knows, she needed her first impression to be good or maybe this woman would just run away from her.

(No worries! It does the trick!)

"I am," she said, taking a seat without asking. Best to get right to it, no? "Sorry I'm running a bit late. The homefront's a little crazy these days, so..." She caught sight of Dom trying to getting her attention, asking her if she wanted a single or a double. Jack lifted her hand, signalled with two fingers, and turned back to the Greyback woman. "I used to come in a lot more for a drink," she said, by ways of explanation, shrugging slightly.

Dom brought over the drink and Jack thanked her and handed over the appropriate coins. Once she had walked away, Jack performed a quick Muffliato and turned her eyes onto the Greyback woman. "Right. So. It's your meeting."

The woman sat and Katya followed her lead. She started playing with her fingers nervously because she knew this meeting means everything. She will be in Order after this or she won't. It was just easy like that.

"Okay so" she paused for a moment while she tried to find the right words. While she was at home she was thinking about this meeting and back then, it looked so easy but now when she was actually there, she just wasn't able to find right words.

"I was in Potter's Army back in school and now, I would really like to join the Order." She looked at the woman with fake self-confidence and continued.
"But it was harder than I thought it would be. Before I find about you, I wasn't able to find anyone from the Order. And I know most of the people judge because of my surname, but I'm different than other Greyback children. At least from those who are with Fenrir" she said alluding to her sister Beatris.
"I just want a chance to help and make this world better place. Does that make any sense to you?"

Though she had given Katya the floor, she did not seem prepared to speak or offer up any explanation - for which Jack was briefly thankful. Dom was hurrying over with her whiskey, which was quickly exchanged for the appropriate change. The blonde knew when the time was right and disappeared quickly. And Katya began speaking just as Jack lifted the glass to her lips.

Jack tilted her head at Katya's final question, lowering her glass. "Sure I do," she said, reaching up to wipe her lips free of any spare liquor. "I think most understand that. Phoenixes want to make the world a better place. And so do their enemies." She paused, letting that settle in. "They just go about it different ways. Few people act with the hope the world gets worse. In their mind, they know how to set things right." She rolled her lips inward. "So what's a better world look like to you?"

Katya took a sip of her juice while looking at Jack. To be honest, she was thinking to order something stronger but she wanted to have clear thoughts today. She wanted this to go well because being in the Order would mean a lot to her. It would be like all her dreams become true, or at least most of them.

Katya listened to Jack's words and everything she said made a lot of sense. She had never thought in that way before, but maybe even villains really think they are making this world better place. The example is Beatris, she really believes in things she does, she has her ideals and even if those ideals seems wrong to most of the people, Beatris believes she is doing something good.
"I want this world to be the safe place for everyone. I don't want people to be scared to send their children to school ever again. That thing that happened last year to the students is terrible. I know almost everyone thinks they are making this world a better place, but violence and using dark magic can't do that. My father never did anything good. I want to be different than him" she shrugged.

Most people had a general desire to be of some help or service to mankind. Whether it was based out of true empathy or a sense of glory, or something in between, people typically wanted to feel as though they were on the right side of history and that they were helpful, productive members of society. The problem wasn't necessarily in finding people who wanted to help, but in finding people who knew how to help. That was where people struggled. And those who knew how to help certainly couldn't abandon their tasks to order around the aimless horde of awkwardly helpful people.

And this was why Jack had stepped away from the Order.

But who was to say whether or not Katya had something to offer.

"If you want to help students, joining their- our - group won't satisfy you," she said. "Not saying you shouldn't join, but if student safety is something you really are concerned about, maybe you should become a teacher, or talk to the Headmaster and see what protective roles there are."

Katya found this conversation more difficult than she thought it will be. Jack asked a lot of questions and even if Katya had answers in her head, she didn't know how to respond. Maybe it was her fault. Maybe she was so obsessed with the idea to be different than Fenrir made her blind. What she really wanted? Was this really her goal? To be Order member? She asked those questions to herself in her mind, and she realized this wasn't any about Fenrir, this was about her. She had a chance, and she didn't want to waste it.

"I was the great student at Hogwarts, you know? I learned a lot about history, out history and Muggle's history. I want to make this place safe for all of us. And if we ever have another war, which I hope we won't have, I want to be on the right side." She paused for a second to take a deep breath before continuing.
"I'm still young. I can't promise you that I will be the best member ever, or that I will know how to deal with every problem, but I want to try. I am ready to learn." She looked at Jack.

"It's not only about the school, I want to fight against Death Eaters. I want to live in a place where we don't need to worry about them and their plans."
