It is no secret that a wand can tell you a lot about the witch or wizard who wields it. Because of this, it is no stretch to assume that by looking at a couple’s wands, one can predict their compatibility. Complementary wands can hold great insight to how well a pair works together.
Pumpkin and Honey are an unusual pair, a set of first years far too shy to reveal their actual names, but we have all seen them about the school, many of us hoping their friendship will one day blossom into a healthy, long term relationship.
You’ve likely seen Pumpkin on the pitch or studying to become the world’s greatest potioneer. She is a darling girl with a smile which could melt your heart. For one so young, she is certainly wise beyond her years, seeing things that others many years her senior miss, a trait universally attributed to possessors of beech wands such as herself.
Honey however, is a much different case. While she is every bit as endearing as her potential partner, she seems to be an odd match to our dear Pumpkin. Honey wields a wand of Sycamore, a wand for the dauntless- a description which fits Honey to a T.
As an additional point, both of these girls’ wands bear a unicorn tail hair core, which suggests an resistance to Dark Arts, personally, I could not recall a wixen with a unicorn hair core who has become a Dark Wizard, though it’d be foolish to call it impossible.
So what does this mean for their potential relationship?
Pumpkin is an open-minded and tolerant wixen, and honestly, many would say she would have to be so in order to have developed such a relationship with Honey. (No offense, love.) Meanwhile, Honey’s handsome wand’s wood is said to lose it’s brilliance if it’s only used for mundane activities, its desire for new experiences so strong that it may combust if it becomes bored. History has already shown that Pumpkin is prone to dragging Honey to new things, such as trying out for her house’s Quidditch team, so I can only imagine the magic these two get into. Considering all of this, I find it extremely likely that Honey will lead Pumpkin on great escapades, allowing the former to satisfy her wand’s (and her own) desire for adventure and the latter to grow rich in understanding and experience.
Ultimately, this pair has unlimited potential for their relationship to grow and flourish as their personalities and desires are mutually beneficial to one another. It is a great matching and I for one, look forward to watching to see how they grow.
