Still angry about my patronus.
Growing up, my siblings and I competed in all sorts of silly children's games like Ring Around the Cauldron and a rather brutal form of Quidditch. Although they didn't try to show it, my parents were relieved to find that all five kids were accepted into Hogwarts; my father is a Squib and had almost married a Muggle woman in hopes he'd fit in. Fortunately, he found my mother. My time at Hogwarts was rather...interesting. Like I said, my siblings and I grew up in a rather competitive environment and it was only natural that the five of us were split into different Houses. My mother had knitted Ravenclaw jumpers when we were kids; almost my entire family had made Ravenclaw with the exception of a few Gryffindors and the odd Slytherin here and there. My older brother was in Hufflepuff, my younger sister and myself were sorted into Slytherin (although the Sorting Hat almost placed me in Gryffindor!), my younger brother was in Gryffindor, and my youngest sister is currently in Hufflepuff.
During my time in school, I excelled in Potions, Transfiguration, and Defense Against the Dark Arts. If it didn't involve a quill, I was in my element. Unfortunately, I was never any good at Divination or History of Magic or even Muggle Studies, which I'm slightly embarrassed about. Something about those subjects never clicked. Needless to say, I dropped those as quick as possible and tried to stick with what involved the most adventure and fun. By the time I graduated, my younger siblings were hot on my tail and about to start their own O.W.L. and N.E.W.T. years. Let's just say my moving away to train as a Curse Breaker for Gringotts didn't go too well. My mother had expected me to get a more traditional Ministry job in London like my older brother and help my younger siblings with their studies. They were never the academic types, especially my brother who now plays for Puddlemere United.
They eventually came accustomed to my rather nomadic lifestyle. I wouldn't change it for the world. I see the world the way I've always wanted to: full of adventure and colour.
