‘A child born of human and spirit will usher in the end of times.’
~Billie Dean Howard
My Version of Mallory:
hat if the one who would save the world was born of angel and of witch? Being a direct Salem witch descendant, every generation of Mallory’s family had a witch born. Her line goes all the way back to Scathach, being the last descendant. She never knew her parents. Her mother died in childbirth and her father was completely unknown to her. Raised by her nurturing grandmother, Mallory grew up in a loving home, and her grandmother was her world. They are very close. But after many strange incidents of dead plants thriving in her presence, insects and small animals coming back to life and a dramatic presentation of bringing her grandmother back to life at her funeral, her grandmother had her sent to Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies. It was for her own safety after their small community had turned on them, running them out of town.
My Mallory can feel the pain in others but it is not quite developed. She can especially feel Michael’s pain. She is his complete opposite yet similar in that she holds great power. He is death, she is life. He is darkness, she is brilliant light. Though she is opposite, she carries a connection to his soul. Perhaps she and he could balance one another if they were allies. But I would like to explore the humanity within him and perhaps have Mallory stop the apocalypse through compassion. I see Michael as a broken little boy deep inside the darkness not understanding why the ones he loved the most left him. He wants acceptance and latches onto strong nurturing women. (Cody fern said something like that about Michael. Lol)
Mallory is nurturing, compassionate, and at times naive. Her innocence and trusting nature in Cordelia can be seen when she is saddened that Cordelia had started fading after she completed the Seven Wonders. Cordelia is like a mother to her. And I feel that Myrtle would be like a second grandmother to her. I can picture Myrtle taking her under her wing and helping her to gain confidence in her powers. My Mallory was afraid to use her powers after the threats and vandalism that was done to her grandmother after her display of power at the funeral. She was ashamed of her powers. On the show Cordelia had told Mallory to never be ashamed of her power.
I can write Mallory at any timeline. Before she joined the coven, during her coven days, or after the apocalypse. And even during the alternate timeline. I do crossovers too.
I write Mallory multi-para to novella and have some examples of my writing on the writing link.
"Sometimes I feel like there's someone buried inside me. Someone trying to claw their way out."
Three Years Ago:
Presumably after the Supreme Cordelia Goode revealed witches to the world, Mallory, a Salem descendant, was identified and enrolled to Robichaux's Academy. Zoe, one of her teachers, saw potential in Mallory's powers, as Mallory flawlessly turned a flower's petals to blue and then turned the petals themselves to butterflies, impressing her Supreme.
In a flashback before the apocalypse when Zoe is teaching the new witches at the Coven, Mallory is seen sitting down observing the spell her mentor cast to change the color of the rose. Cordelia then enters, Zoe tells her to watch her excitedly as Mallory changes the petal color to blue. It then falls apart and Cordelia begins to doubt her, leaving Zoe shocked. However, she quickly changes the fallen petals to butterflies amazing everyone in the room including the supreme herself. The butterflies then transform back to petals which revert back to their original color.
When Cordelia agreed to allow Michael to take the test of the Seven Wonders, Myrtle is infuriated and wants her to change her mind as she thinks there is a more promising candidate who is a fellow witch she reveals is Mallory. Myrtle then explains why she thinks so, when she and some girls were in the garden collecting herbs a deer was found dead, Mallory not only bought it back to life but reversed its injuries completely without the use of healing mud. Some time after, Mallory informs Cordelia that her resurrected witches are settled and her appointment is here. After hearing Coco's story, Cordelia then tells Mallory to show her around. Mallory welcomes her kindly and then walks away with her.
Sometime before the Apocalypse, for her protection, she was placed under an identity spell and took on the new role of personal assistant to Coco. She had no great love for her job and could feel the true person she was clawing underneath the surface.
Mallory is first seen at the hair salon where her boss, Coco is getting her hair done by hairdresser Gallant. Everyone's phones suddenly receive an emergency alert that a ballistic missile is set to impact Los Angeles and to seek shelter. Coco first dismisses it as a hoax, but her father calls her to tell her the threat is real and to get to Santa Monica airport where a private jet is waiting. Mallory and Coco run out of the salon and get into a car that is waiting for them.
On their way to the airport, Mallory tells Coco that she needs to go home as she can't get a hold of her mom, but Coco begs her to stay, telling her she would be lost without her and offers her brother's ticket, to which Mallory agrees. As they arrive at the airport, Gallant and his grandmother Evie show up. Mr. Gallant tells Coco that he heard her father say there were four spaces and that he and Evie are here to take the remaining two.
Onboard, Mallory goes to the cockpit to ask the pilots where they are going but finds that the plane is unmanned. Suddenly, the missile hits Los Angeles and the plane begins to rock violently, but it restores itself quickly. Coco, Mallory and Mr. Gallant look out of the window to see a mushroom cloud rising where Los Angeles has been destroyed.
A few weeks later at Outpost 3, Mallory has been put into servitude as a gray, waiting on the purples. Whilst serving mineral water, she asks Coco is she has spoken to Wilhemina Venable about making her a purple, but Coco tells her that she scares her and that Mallory doesn't have a good reason to be a purple like Evie and Gallant do.
When the song on the jukebox changes, Gallant believes this is a sign that The Cooperative is coming to rescue them. Mallory gets excited and drinks the mineral water she is serving to celebrate. However, eighteen months later the group have still not been rescued. When Gallant and Coco protest at dinner saying that they are fed up with waiting around to die, Mallory states that she thinks they should take their chances outside. However, Ms. Mead says that no one is going to leave.
Mallory is interviewed by Michael Langdon to see if she's fit to go to the Sanctuary. Michael mistakes her current identity and her feelings of confusion for her potential for darkness and pushes her to reveal her true nature. Mallory reacts poorly and her magic surfaces unexpectedly. Shocked, she leaves and confesses her fears to Coco and Mr. Gallant, who ridicule her. During the masquerade party, she eats a poisoned apple and dies, only for Cordelia, Myrtle, and Madison to arrive at Outpost Three and resurrect her, along with Coco and Dinah, revealing them to also be "sister witches". Madison greets her with her catchphrase, as the return to the mortal coil has broken the spell to keep her safe and takes off her glasses, able to see without them.
