William has never put too much effort into his looks. Although he does enjoy occasionally dressing up, otherwise, he couldn't care less about his looks. He keeps his hair cut short, and whenever he has the opportunity to, will throw on a hat to cover it up. He is rather athletic, and it is easy to see this from his muscular build and broad shoulders. His facial structure is also rather strong, and his jawline and cheek bones protrude pretty well. Generally, he trims his facial hair every day, but if he gets lazy at all, he gets a slight scruff, framing his usually smiling face.

|{Hobbies}|
*Running: William has grown to find pleasure in running, and though he doesn't have an exceptional amount of free time at school, he still tries to release his stress like this when he can.
*Reading: True to his house, William loves to read and learn anything knew that he can. Whether it's for school or for fun, he's always reading a few books at once.
*Pacing: Whenever he is worried about something, which actually happens to be quite often, he needs to pace to keep himself calm while he thinks things through.
*Potions: Again, true to his house, William spends his free time trying to be better at his schoolwork, and in this case, his favorite class.
*Drawing: Doodling, sketching, drawing, William is always multitasking while in class, and always draws.
|{Fears}|
*Fire: From a few past experiences with fire that didn't go too well, he's grown to despise fire.
*Losing his sister: His sister is the most important thing to him, so he fears her getting hurt even in the slightest.
*Rats: This one has no explanation, he just thinks they're really gross.
|{Details}|
William is definitely a friendly boy, the first person in the room to introduce himself, and always willing to strike up a conversation whenever with whoever about whatever. His curious manner, along with his desire to please those around him, leads him to be extremely friendly. He loves getting to know people and making new friends, and is always happy to smile at someone and say hello. He, like his sister, can be very adventurous, and likes challenging himself. Whether it be physical or mental, he likes to have some form of entertainment constantly. His sister is the largest form of entertainment in his life, as in he is usually watching her and trying to ensure nothing bad happens to her, as he really is a definition protective brother.
He has found a sense of comfort in knowledge. It was one of the aspects of his life that he was able to completely take control of, controlling how hard he works and what he learns. This main part of his personality is the reason for his house placement.

|{History}|
Life away from Hogwarts is not very pleasant. William's parents met at Oxford, where his father pursued a muggle medical education, after graduating from Hogwarts. The two fell madly in love, and his muggle born mother, who was broke, was swooned by her magical mystery man. One thing led to another and William was born, and not too long after, Karolina was as well. When William was 5, his father was killed in the backlash of his work for the Ministry. Their house was set on fire, in an attempt to get rid of the whole family and make it look like an accident, but his mother was not home, and his father was able to get the kids out.Left broken hearted, and soon to be broke, his mother became a shell of the woman she was before.
No longer loving, caring, and nurturing, she began to spend less and less time at home. By the time that William had turned 8, he and his sister were often being left home alone for a day or two at a time, while there mother was off doing god knows what. When he turned 10, she remarried a wealthy man, and things seemed to pick up, briefly. The man turned out to be not such a nice man, being physical with William whenever he upset him. The times he almost became aggressive with Karolina, or had become aggressive, William intervened, or was somehow able to make his mother help. Despite all of these troubling things, William was always a very good kid. He kept mostly to himself, though he made a few good friends early on that he kept around for years, and maintained straight A's, enrolling in two high school classes during fifth grade.
William's letter from Hogwarts changed things a lot. Although he had always known him and his sister were slightly different than many of the kids at their school, and he had a few memories of his dad doing strange, magical-seeming things, he didn't really know he was a wizard until his letter came. Hogwarts was a blessing for him, a place he was able to get away to for most of the year. That being said, the first two years were hard for him, because he had to leave his sister behind at home. But now, things seem to be going great. When he is home, during the summers, his step-father is more than anything freaked out by the magical siblings, and no longer bothers them the same way.

It has been well over two months since classes started at Hogwarts. Students have already unpacked all of their stuff, read the first chapters of their books, gone to see their first Quidditch game of the year, and done their first few tests to measure how much they studied throughout their vacations. Slowly but surely the pressure is building up inside the school; not many people can keep quiet about the war that's been going on outside their school's walls and curiosity is starting to spark a revolution through some of the student body.

It is Monday morning, about 6:30 am, and everyone is just starting to wake up and put on their robes to grab breakfast at 7:30 at the Great Hall. Whispered rumors about who's parents are Death Eaters and who's siblings have joined what side are still circulating around, but the bell for first period chimes at 9:00,

are you ready?

#2800d8 || 7th Year || Ravenclaw


William had learned many times that sleeping sitting up and slightly hunched over in bed was not comfortable- nevertheless, he had awoken in this very position, leaned over a thick book he had brought back from the library for some extra research. As he sat up, rubbing the sleep out of his eyes, he could feel a stiffness in his back that was sure to hurt for a day or two. Yet again, he had fallen asleep while doing some late night reading in bed.

Realizing he was slightly behind schedule, Will popped out of bed and shoved the book into his bag- not before putting a bookmark where he left off, and went to the bathroom to get ready for the day. He brushed his teeth, washed his face, shaved the small patches of hair that if he let grow out would still probably not amount to much of a beard, and combed through his hair. He wasn't too upset that he didn't have time to shower because he planned on trying to run later, so it would just be a waste anyways. After changing into his Ravenclaw robes, Will checked the time again, then went back to pack up his things and make his bed, making sure to tuck the sheets in tight and smooth out the wrinkles. Though he personally did not care whether his bed was made or not, this had become a habit from living at home when he was younger and used to be in charge of basically all of the house chores.

Slinging his bag over his shoulder, Will glanced around the room to make sure he had not forgotten anything, and went into the common room. He had forgotten some of his homework there, and picked it up as he left the room to head to breakfast. Although he was often one of the first few into the Great Hall, today he was running late, so it was already pretty well populated. He spotted Brooke over at the Hufflepuff table, talking to Lavender and Gracie, and threw her a bright smile and wave. His eyes moved to Gracie, who he could tell was clearly deep in thought. Probably thinking about that boy again, he thought, lightly chuckling to himself as he took a seat at his table.

He began to eat, choosing healthier options, and drifting into a light thought about last night's reading, but was quickly brought out of thought when his sister briefly passed by him to say hello, by tickling his sides. "What a pleasure," he chuckled, settling back into his food and mentally preparing for the day ahead of him.

#c900ff || 5th Year || Slytherin


Karolina woke up, as usual, with the sun. She rose well before everyone else in her dorm, and likely well before most of the other students, in order to get ample time in for a run. Being ever so silent, she crept out of bed and changed into a pair of cropped athletic leggings and a tank top and jog bra. She wasn't completely sure about the actual rules about what she was allowed to wear, even if it was before everyone else was up, but until it became a problem, she didn't care.

Pulling on her sneakers, she checked the time to be 5:20. This meant she had about an hour to run before she needed to be back here and start getting ready. Karolina made her way out through the common room as silently as she could, and began to jog in the corridors, taking the fastest route to outside before briefly stretching and following a pretty normal routine, pushing herself hard and working up a sweat. She was hoping to see that boy- Jason- around this morning, but didn't seem to catch sight of him before finishing up, and heading back towards the Slytherin common room. Walking through the corridors, Karolina began to do cartwheels and front-handsprings. At this point, a few early rising students were up, and rather confused, to see this girl trotting through the hall and flipping at them. One student even attempted to scold her, but she just smiled and giggled, heading back to her room to get ready.

After a quick shower, she french braided her hair in the mirror, only missing a strand or two in the front, then dressed, and headed towards the Great Hall. Her eyes immediately found her brother, sitting alone at the Ravenclaw table, and she beelined to him. "Morning brother dearest" she cooed, squishing her brothers sides quickly to 'taser' him, before moving along and going to sit at the Slytherin table. She had kept her eye out for Leo, but sadly, she did not see him.

Karolina spotted Agatha sitting at the Slytherin table, fingers intertwined, with a thoughtful look on her face, and chose to sit near her, although not directly across from her. "Morning," she muttered, nodding her head at Agatha with a slight smirk on her face, but quickly dropping the smirk for a more neutral face and reaching to grab some breakfast. She may not have been sure about much, but she was sure of the fact that breakfast was a necessary component of any great day.

"I know B, but I can't help it. The harsh truth is that mostly Muggle or half-blood families are being attacked by You-Know-Who, and what family do I come from? A Muggle family! They're an instant target," Brooke could hear the panicking in Lavander's voice which only seemed to make Brooke worry about her more. Sure she understood where she was coming from, after all, Brooke was half-blood and feared for her own life and her parents as well. Things were complicated and the only thing you could really do was hold your head up and try to get on with your life. That would just be difficult to explain to Lavander at the moment, so instead she just nodded her head and sighed. "Trust me, Lavander. I understand. I'm just worried about you is all," just as Brooke finished speaking, the two girls were greeted by Gracie.

Gracie was the first female friend Brooke had ever made at Hogwarts and they were so much alike that Brooke immediately pegged Gracie as her twin. The two of them bonded greatly over the years, only causing their friendship to become more sister like than ever. After her greeting Gracie got to the point of Brooke sitting at the Hufflepuff table. "Hey Brookie, aren't we supposed to sit at our houses table?" Brooke let out a soft nod of her head as she tucked her blonde strands behind her ear. "I wasn't going to be here long. Just wanted to check on Lavander," she stated with a soft smile as she stood to her feet and noticed Will had stepped into the common room. Brooke returned the small wave before she cleared her throat a bit and added to the girls, "See you girls later," she added before heading over to the Ravenclaw table.

Brooke approached behind Will and wrapped her arms around him from behind before placing a kiss upon the top of his head and silently took a seat beside him at the table. With a smile she spoke, "Morning Will. So what's the plans for today?" This was a common question she asked him on a daily basis just in case there ever happened to be anything he was doing that she would want to join him on. Most of the time it dealt with study groups or just wandering through the halls and grounds of Hogwarts. But every once in a while there would be a couple things thrown in that consisted of more fun. This of course was very rare. Not that Brooke didn't consider Will to be a fun person, she just knew Will liked to focus on his studies a lot, just as almost every other Ravenclaw.

As she continued to sit there in silence, waiting on Will's plans for the day she began to fix her plate for breakfast. She reached for a fruit cup, a blueberry muffin, and a pastry and took a sip from her glass of orange juice before setting it back down on the table in front of her.

As per usual Leo had woken bright and early, having gotten washed and dress before his roommates, he had found a cosy seat in the common room and watched as his housemates slowly began to trickle in. He notices Brooke but isn't quick enough to greet her before she slips out - most likely heading to breakfast. Running a hand through his thick white hair, Leo figures it's now a reasonable time for him to head down. Saying goodbye to a small group of Ravenclaws that had formed around him while he was seated, Leo exits the common room and makes his way down the towers steps and to the Great Hall.

Walking into the Great Hall with his typical slightly smug smile plastered on his face, Leo goes to take a seat at the Ravenclaw table before he sees a pastry fly across the room and manage to hit Agatha. His smile slipping slightly, Leo looks over to see the source of the attack and rolls his eyes when he spots Jason looking sheepish and trying to shrink down in his seat. Returning to his previous plan of heading to his house's table, Leo spots Brooke sitting with Will, and while Leo wasn't particularly good friends with the latter, him and Brooke got along famously so he took a seat next to her. "Hey Brooke, you're looking as beautiful as ever," Leo says, beginning his conversation immediately with a slight flirt before looking over at Will, smiling slightly at him, "Morning William," He greets the guy with before glancing around the room, "Your sister isn't here is sh-" Pausing mid sentence as his eyes find Karolina, Leo's small smile grows as he sends her a wave but doesn't approach her just yet - not wanting to be rude and leave the pair he was currently with. After he'd eaten though, Leo would go and sit at the Slytherin table with her.

Grabbing a bowl of already prepared fruit from the centre of the table, Leo stabs at a piece of watermelon with his fork as he takes another glance around the room to see who else was around. Noticing both of the twins sitting at their respective tables, Leo sends a smile to both but lingers ever so slightly longer on Jayson. A strange feeling finding it's way into his stomach before he quickly pulls his gaze from the other males direction.

Finishing her breakfast, Gracie sends Brooke off with a large smile and wave, watching her close friend bound over to her table where William now sat. Noticing her older friend looking in her direction, Gracie sends him a wave also, contemplating heading over to him before her eyes lock onto Jason's. Her big grin falling into a slightly shyer, yet still just as sweet smile, Gracie plays with one of her curls as she watches him interact with his housemates at his table. Deciding that as she was done with her food, she'd go and say hello, Gracie stands up from her seat just in time to see a pastry fly across the room and hit Agatha. Gasping slightly, Gracie watches the slightly strange witch pick up the pastry and head in the direction of the Gryffindor table. Stifling a small giggle, Gracie then continues on her path to Jason before realising that, that was exactly where Agatha was headed too. Stopping slightly to watch the girl chastise her friend, Gracie waits until she thinks Agatha is done before joining Jason. "Leave it up to you to make Agatha mad after five minutes of being in the Great Hall." Gracie teases, taking a seat with him and Jayden at their table, giving them both a greeting.

As well as Jason, Gracie was friends with both of the twins and, in fact, most of the school. Not being one to be exclusive, Gracie befriended practically everyone she could and loved getting to know new people. That being said, Agatha was just one person she'd never gotten along smoothly with. It's not that she disliked the girl - Gracie rarely disliked anyone - she just got the strangest vibe from Agatha that was awfully off-putting. Lavander was another witch that Gracie didn't quite mesh well with, the two were friends for sure but being s similar actually drove the girls apart rather than brought them together. While Gracie was always happy to hang out with the girl, they aren't the type of friends to spend time together, one-on-one but rather in a group (typically of Hufflepuffs). As Gracie thought about one-on-one time, she's reminded of her and Jason's tutor time and looks back at the wizard to mention it, "Still up for a study session after classes?" Gracie asks, hoping he would say yes as the pair often studied together the day before they had Astronomy. It being Gracie's favourite subject and Jason's least meant that Gracie had an excuse to spend more time with him and call it 'tutoring'.

#2800d8 || 7th Year || Ravenclaw


Will could tell who had hugged him from behind almost instantaneously, recognizing the affectionate gesture to be from his dear friend Brooke. She had always been affectionate to him, ever since they became such fast friends, and gestures like this were daily. He smiled back to her, eyes opening wide with excitement in response to her question, but not quite answering before Leo had sat down on the other side of her and, characteristically, immediately complimented her. He smiled a greeting to Leo and watched the boy's eyes fall on to his sister. He wasn't quite sure what it was that had made Leo and Karolina so close- but he wasn't quite sure he liked it.
Bringing his attention back to Brooke, Will began to speak rather quickly at first, but by the end of his sentence very slowly.

"Well, besides that massive charms essay we have due tomorrow- which I'm almost done with so lets not stress about it- I was up most of the night reading..." His eyes darted quickly from Brooke to around the dining hall, checking to see who was near and who might be listening.

His eyes met Brooke's as he attempted to decide whether or not the reading was actually something he should discuss with Brooke right now. It had been heavy stuff- a history of dark uses of magic and recording of wizard on muggle crime- but it was very relevant to the current times. Will's mouth opened as he began to give Brooke a very brief overview, but he stopped talking as he saw some sort of drama unfolding across the room. It seemed a Gryffindor boy, Jason, had thrown a pastry at Agatha. He couldn't help but chuckle lightly, watching her reprimand him and clearly scare him, before drawing his attention once again back to Brooke.

"Have you any suggestions on something we can do later? I don't think the work load should be too heavy tonight."

Karolina was actually surprised by Agatha's response; it was quite a bit friendlier than usual. In fact, the fact that she had responded at all was kind of surprising. "Yeah, I actually slept really well," Karolina muttered, organizing her plate to look pretty before digging in. She watched the girl across the table eat, forever interested by her harsh ways. She had spotted Leo across the room and made a note in her mind to grab him as soon as she was done eating.

When Agatha got hit in the face with a pastry, Karolina could not help but smile. Not because she was happy to see the girl upset, but rather because anything out of the ordinary in general was thrilling for her. Her mouth was slightly agar in a shocked, but clearly a smile, expression as she kept her eyes glued to Agatha on the move. "This'll be good," she muttered to herself, watching.

She was honestly slightly let down. She had hoped Agatha would retaliate more, but it almost seemed like she hadn't planned on doing anything. Then suddenly the pastry dropped to the table, rotten and maggot filled. Karolina chose to stop watching at this point and to quickly finish her meal. She didn't mind sitting alone at all, especially since it allowed her to focus on eating and not getting distracted.

When she finished, Karolina stood up quickly, leaning backwards in a stretch until she felt her back crack. She then locked her eyes on Leo- who seemed to be looking at someone else. She followed his eye contact to land on Jayson, which was no surprise, but by the time she looked back to Leo he had moved his eye contact. Karolina again locked her eyes on her friend and basically pranced over to him, adding a spinning jump at the end before sitting down across from him just for effect. She reached over and grabbed his hand, giving it a quick squeeze hello and a goofy kiss before speaking.

"I'm thinking next time if we really want to get a food fight going, we throw something that stains." She said, her eyes looking at each of the three across from her, Leo, her brother, and Brooke, before grabbing a piece of fruit out of Brooke's fruit cup and eating it.
