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.
Today’s couple has been the subject of many an Owl Post article, a rumour, and even a few confessions from time to time. There’s no denying that Charlie Merle and Logan Ashworth have a certain star quality, though this is mainly due to the fabulous Gryffindor prefect. No one knows how or /why/ this couple stays together, but maybe, just maybe, their wands can give us some insight.
Charlotte Merle is a name we /all/ know. She’s a Prefect, Quidditch Captain, and aspiring musical goddess. She’s loud, proud, and overall an excellent example of what every Gryffindor should try to be, though… This editor might recommend you study a bit more than she does.
Logan Ashworth, on the other hand is… Well, he’s certainly the least notable Ashworth. A Hufflepuff, Logan is… He’s… Charlie’s fiance.
At any rate, Charlie wields a golden-toned wand made of Pear, a beautiful tool well suited for the star who wields it. Logan on the other hand, bears a wand made of his family namesake, Ash.
What does this say about the couple?
Charlie’s wand is of a wood which often produces wands of splendid magical powers. This is a wand which works best in the hands of the warm-hearted and generous, which anyone could tell you is true of Charlie, but also the wise… And though Charlie has had her fair share of dense moments, she has her own brand of wisdom, which often benefits younger students. Those who wield Pear wands are often popular and well respected as well, notably highly unlikely to become a Dark witch or wizard and anyone can tell you how beloved Charlie is.That Charlie is well loved likely balances out Logan’s tendency to blend into the crowd, and is likely how she prevents her many friends from hexing him. Her wisdom is likely helpful in keeping him from behaving rashly, though anyone who knows Charlie can likely point out that she, herself is prone to diving headfirst into dangerous situations. I guess no one follows their own advice.
Alternatively, Logan’s Ash wand tells of his stubborn personality, (As explained in the old age ‘Rowan gossips, chestnut drones, ash is stubborn, hazel moans.’) Perhaps this refusal to be swayed from his beliefs and purposes is how this relationship stubbornly defies the odds? They say the ideal owner of an ash wand is courageous, a trait Logan must have if he wishes to keep up with our favourite Lioness.
Ultimately… Despite the wishes of a presumed many in Hogwarts, this pair is a good mix. Hanging on to one another purely through stubbornness and resilience. I get the feeling that like Charlie’s pear wand, these two will forever be in that sickly sweet honeymoon phase, maintaining a remarkable appearance of newness, even after many many years.
