I'm 21 (as of Jul 2016) and a theatre geek. I was previously a 6th year if I remember correctly, but made a new account b/c of email. Hello!

Backstory

I come from a pureblood family of Slytherins, so when the Sorting Hat gave me a choice between Ravenclaw and Slytherin, I took a plunge into Ravenclaw. My family treated it as a slight, that I wanted to be a "special snowflake" but I never cared. I strived to be top of my class the first four years and excelled academically, although I find History of Magic to be utterly boring. Now I focus a lot less on getting Outstandings in every class and more on subjects and just things that catch my interest. Some professors find it to be a "shame" and that I showed "such promise", but I'm confidant enough in my own abilities and I still aim to learn, just no longer to compete with my fellow Ravenclaws. Still, if you need help with essays or understanding any subject more I can certainly help you, just don't attempt to take advantage... I am after all of Slytherin blood and it shows when you're on my bad side.

My favorite core subjects have been DADA, Transfiguration, and Potions. I'm taking Alchemy this year and it's actually quite interesting, it has made my potion experimentation cleaner with less accidents as well as increase my knowledge in a way I didn't expect. Divination is extremely easy and Arithmancy is fun but has a lot of homework, I came in well versed in such subjects so I don't find it as difficult as other students and Professor Vector CAN be pretty strict, but she's really nice and helpful if she sees you putting in effort she's just dismissive to those who obviously don't care. So I would suggest taking it if you're honestly interested in the subject and don't get too deterred by numbers and lots of work. I'm currently top student in her class so come to me if you're still too scared to go to her (you shouldn't be). Care of Magical Creatures is easygoing but shouldn't be taken too lightly, I adore all creatures and plan to get a permit for some of the more (coincidentally) dangerous ones so you'll find me being more attentive. I'm hoping to gain permission to own a thestral or two as well as... other creatures.
Music is an easy elective to take, and I'm trying to get theater classes approved as well but there are some complicated details in doing so that I'm trying to solve before going to the Headmaster about it again. If you're interested in taking classes or perhaps forming a club, please let me know! With enough demand I'm sure we can make it happen!

I love the Weird Sisters, I had a poster of Kirley Duke hanging up in the dorm until my fourth year when SOMEBODY (cough cough Alexa) jinxed it to never shut up and I had to take him down. If you're a Ravenclaw, you may witness my familiar Minnie slinking about the dorm. She's a bit antisocial with other creatures but loves being petted, just don't be too insulted if she snubs you. She also has a habit of claiming seats to herself, I wouldn't suggest moving her unless you're prepared to deal with your bed full of fur and scratches on it (she Knows which ones yours is). She's quite independent and can be aggressive, but she's loyal and will usually address you if you call her name as long as she isn't hunting. She's quite the curious kitty and will watch any spellwork, but beware her judging eyes when you mess up! I'm also known to make some tasty creative drinks, with side effects occurring only 15% of the time which I'm rarely unable to fix! I can mix all the classics of course, put my own spin on them sometimes if asked, but ask about my Ignis Ale. If nothing works out at least i know I can open up my own inn! Some noted that I must love Herbology and Potions if I enjoy making drinks and my use of herbs in them and it's true that I adore Potions but I must say that while I do excel at Herbology that does not mean I enjoy it. If the face I make when first and second years ask for my help doesn't tip you off then continue watching as I'm likely to point them in the direction of somebody that isn't me who would probably love the opportunity to show off their knowledge, which I rarely do unless I have no time. I'm also a performer, and you'll find me singing and making interesting movements quite often ;)
