Luz Noceda || Twenty-One || Student || Magical
“This is clearly not the PG fantasy world I always dreamed about.”
Luz has never fit in. She’s never really wanted to fit in either. She’s always been content with reading her fantasy books and playing with snakes she found on the ground and telling scary stories to her peers. Luz was just loving life being herself. But nobody else ever seemed to appreciate her and her unique view on the world. When she was fourteen, and she had gotten in trouble for using sparklers and fake blood in her book report presentation, the principal suggested to her mother that Luz be sent to a summer camp meant for kids like Luz. And when she first heard that, she was thrilled, but on closer inspection of the brochure, Luz learned that it was essentially some kind of boot camp to get kids to be more well behaved. So on the day she was supposed to go, she didn’t. Instead, Luz ran away. She found herself in a place called Walt Grove. It was a seemingly quiet place but it didn’t take her long to discover the magic that flowed through the streets.
She met a woman named Eda, who was chaotic and fun and magical. She hated that magic was seen as taboo and she often got in trouble for casting little spells around town. She and her roommate, a funny guy named Damien King who always tried to act tougher and more powerful than he actually was, took a liking to Luz, who thought their funny little house in the woods was the coolest thing. And Luz loved them. She especially got close to Eda. She wanted her to teach her magic, and while Eda didn’t know if that was possible since Luz clearly didn’t have any magic in her, she agreed. She stayed with Eda and King that summer, sending letters home to her mother saying she was at camp, and there were times she felt bad about lying. But come on, this was practically a magical summer camp. How could she pass that up? She met some other kids around her age who were also magical, but they were odd about it. Willow and Gus knew about Eda, and they thought she was cool, but they didn’t think their parents would. They always spoke about their parents being in Covens. Covens were something that Eda scoffed at, but she didn’t tell Luz why. Luz was confused since another friend, Amity, seemed convinced that Covens were important and wanted to be a part of one more than anything.
Luz learned magic in her own way, in her own time, by drawing old symbols, spell runes. She just had to draw them and then touch to activate. Light spells were the easiest, but also they didn’t do much. Still, she spent that summer learning. But eventually, she had to go back home. She never told her mother about what she did that summer, and she felt bad about it. But she kept going back each year, learning more from Eda, hanging out with her friends, and just enjoying a fantasy life she had always dreamed about. When she got older, and it was time to apply to college, Luz made sure she got into Walt University. She was so happy to live full time in Walt Grove. She lived with Eda and King, and still hung out with Willow and Gus— and sometimes Amity when she wasn’t being weird about hanging out with them. She’s learned more spell runes and how to control them and use them, but she knows there’s still a lot more she needs to understand. She still doesn’t understand her friends’ obsession or disdain over the Covens in Walt Grove, but she’s sure that’s just another secret that will one day reveal itself. Luz hopes to one day learn all about magic and the secrets that Walt Grove holds, but regardless of what she has learned or will one day learn, Luz is still just the same goofy girl who doesn’t really care if she stands out in a crowd.
🌹Opinions on Magic:
She loves it! She thinks its so interesting and she loves learning more. She doesn’t really understand the taboo of it all, and she’s usually pretty open about her thoughts and feelings on it all.
The Pines Twins: Luz met them that summer she first arrived. They were a fun little duo, Dipper always looking for mysteries and Mabel always looking for cute boys. Luz loved hanging out with them when they were kids, and she loves hanging out with them now.
Lilith Clawthorne: Eda’s sister who kind of scares Luz. Eda tries to keep Luz away from her, but Luz knows that Amity looks up to her, so she doesn’t really know where to stand. But for now, she’s trying to keep her distance.
Dani Dennison: Dani seems really interested in the magic around Walt Grove, and she seems to know more about it than Luz, so she’s always interested in talking to her and swapping stories about what they know and sharing theories.
