BackstoryHello all, my name is Andrea Barnes. You may have heard of me....or at least my family. I'm a first year, this year, but I've heard about Hogwarts many times before. My father is a Healer at St. Mungo's Hospital, dealing with research and treatment of infectious magical diseases. He's been published many times, as one could expect from his prominent position. My mum is a stay-at-home-mum in our townhouse in London, where she's taken of me for the past 11 years, as well as my two grandparents Vincent and Marie O'Leary. Most of the time we're at our home in London so Dad can work easier, but during the summer we stay at the O'Leary Estate in Northeast Ireland. We all knew I was going to Hogwarts letter, and expectantly, it came. But, the question was - where was I going to be placed?
Dad's from a prominent line of Ravenclaw's, Mum's side has strong ties to Slytherin. I've never considered myself a Hufflepuff, or really even a Gryffindor. And if Grandfather could have it is way, I'd be a Slytherin. However, when I was placed, it was in Ravenclaw. It wasn't a surprise to me, I've always loved books and art and beautiful, beautiful studying. But, I know my duty at this school, to be a good student from a good background. My parents only want me to succeed, shouldn't I be able to do that for them?
