Having Apprentice around is turning out to be not so bad after all.
Yesterday she found some sort of herb called gillyweed, which allowed us to breath under water.
After obtaining the crystal she used her magic to make a sunken boat rise to the surface.
Noccio fixed the holes in the boat hull and off we were to Hogwarts school for Wizardry and Witchcraft.
I wonder if Apprentice went there when she was a kid.
And if she did, why is she now Scarlet Witch’s Apprentice and not a Witch herself…
So far she refused to talk about it.
On our way towards Hogwarts, me and Noccio had to set across each other due to the size of the boat.
We talked and talked for what seemed to be hours.
Appears we have quite a lot in common.
We both didn't have the most pleasant childhood.
I was cursed from the day I was born.
Noccio never was born.
He was sculpted by a toy maker called Gepetto who then wished upon a falling star that his puppet would become a real boy.
The Blue Fairy heard his wish and granted it.
Noccio had to prove himself to be brave, truthful and unselfish and to tell right from wrong by listening to his conscience.
After disobeying his father one time the Blue Fairy cursed Noccio.
Each time he would tell a lie his nose would grow.
After a whole series of adventures Noccio proved himself to be worthy of becoming a real boy and the Blue Fairy turned him into a real boy.
When Noccio turned 21, she came to regret that decision, turned him back into a puppet and planted him by the side of the road.
He started to grow roots and branches and couldn't move.
If it wasn't for us he would have turned into a talking tree.
For those interested here is a picture of my miniature Hogwarts. This is one of the smaller MOCs I made for my Twisted Tales but it was one of the hardest things I've ever done with LEGO. I've never build in a scale smaller than minifig scale and I never worked with forced perspective before. I am quite pleased with how it turned out. Hope you like it too!
