Professors Drachblume and Eastwood have been the topic of gossip for the past few years with many students holding them up as the perfect example of a great relationship. Like those who hold stock in complementary zodiac signs, there are a few of us who find a great importance in complementary wands with a deeper meaning being woven beyond just the initial description of a wand wood.
Professor Dracheblume carries an English Oak, perfect for her affinity with the natural earth. It is further enhanced by her strong personality and one of great courage – as many of us have witnessed at varying points over the past school years.
As we’re all very aware, Professor Eastwood is no stranger to danger and as the owner of a sugar maple wand he is the typical maple holder, not a stay-at-home type of man, ambitious and faces the challenges of dragons on a frequent basis. But what does this all mean for them as a couple?
In the simplest of terms, Professor Dracheblume, regardless of the commitments that the student populus are so desperate to see (in the form of a ring on her finger), will remain steadfastly loyal to Professor Eastwood. Her courage is flattering to an adventurous wand owner and she will never be fearful to join him at his side. Her strength will ensure that she does not falter when he is not there to uplift her and she will be able to face the challenges he seeks when with him.
In addition to her being our Herbology professor, it also helps that she has an affinity with the natural world as they are both sure to face many creatures and plants on their journeys together and it is likely that her innate intuition will often save them. His love for travelling will ensure that he is always able to present her with new creatures and plants to discover and his ambitiousness is vital because it is no easy task to love a queen such as the wielder of an English Oak wand.
The wand of Nobility and the wand of High Achievers, all in all, will make a perfect pair.
