{ LIKES }

  • Dressing up and feeling pretty - Malina has always loved to look her best, wear make up, and do her hair.
  • Spending time alone - It gives Malina time to think, reflect... It's probably not good for her, but, she's too afraid to meet friends.
  • Reading - "The library is my sanctuary." Malina found the library the perfect spot to be alone in, to read up, and excel in her classes.
  • Spending time outside
  • Potions class
  • Daydreaming
  • Sarcastic humor - Although Malina adores the idea of sarcastic humor, although sometimes she takes it too far. She learned from her mother to throw snarky comments at the wrong times. Normally Malina is sarcastic when she is feeling envious of others.
  • Writing - Malina's love for writing stemmed from her love for reading. She normally writes short stories, poetry and such. She loves journaling, she always is carrying one with her. She finds it a way of coping with her emotions.
  • Baking - "Cupcakes are just happy muffins.... I like making them... Uhh... they make my tummy happy?"
  • Sleep - Malina is often extremely tired, sleep is her way of coping with stresses from the day to day things, she tends to do a lot more sleeping than socializing.

{ DISLIKES }
  • Getting in trouble - "It's just not my thing. I get good grades, and mother would kill me if I ever got expelled."
  • When others try to invade my personal bubble - I'm an introvert, I just wish some would get that....
  • Being around large groups of people - It makes her cringe, she hates it. Cannot stand it. Everything about it makes her kind of sick.
  • When people don't pay attention in class - "You're here to learn, right? So... shut up, and do it."
  • Having conversations with people of little intelligence - [i]"UGHHH. Snoregasm... but... of course...I would never say that out loud... to anyone..."
  • Transifguration class -" It's my burden to bear. and I struggle in that class often."
  • Being cooped up inside for too long
  • Malina loves her mom, but at the same time she dislikes the way her mother is always hovering over her shoulder, she dislikes when people tell her how to live, or what to do if the advice is unprovoked.
  • When Malina is around people for too long, she tends to lose patience quickly, and her enthusiasm burns out, so she can come across as distant, or grumpy.

{ ASPIRATIONS }
Malina aspires to be a potions teacher at Hogwarts, or maybe even try to be a healer by making potions to rid of disease, or help the wounded. She believes that potions are lovely, and yet deadly, they can give life, or take it.

{ FEARS }
  • Meeting new people
  • Her mother
  • Failing a test, or a class
  • Being expelled.

{ GOOD HABITS }
  • Accepts others for who they are and doesn't try to change them - Malina believes that everyone has redeeming qualities and tries to give everyone a chance.
  • Punctual - If there is one thing Malina learned from her mother is that time is precious, and being on time, even early is crucial to make good impressions for anything.
  • Takes care of herself - Malina will always try to look her best, she likes to feel clean and feel her best, even if she isn't planning on socializing.
  • Good Student
  • Follows the rules
  • Eats Healthy
  • Reads a lot - "If I stick my nose in a book, people are less likely to be interested."
  • Friendly - Malina can be really friendly at first, until some time kicks in.
  • Exercises - Malina loves going for long walks, it doesn't have to be strenuous, as long as she is moving, she is happy.
  • Stays out of trouble.

{ BAD HABITS }
  • Malina, around new people, tends to put on a fake personality because she is afraid others will not like her when they first meet her, and trying to keep up with her fake personality is difficult so she tends to detach herself from others quite quickly.
  • She tends to get sucked into her own thoughts and many times will shut others out quite quickly, which can come across as rude or uninterested.
  • She often hold grudges when people -- intentionally, or unintentionally, hurt her feelings. She bottles things up, and does not allow herself to express a lot of emotions if they aren't good ones, in fear her feelings are "in the wrong"; this makes her hostile towards meeting others, and she will often avoid meeting new people, or introducing herself.
  • Malina's sweet tooth is very strong, although she was taught to eat healthy and stray from sweets, she still tends to crave the sweets and will often binge on them if she becomes depressed.
  • Biting her nails
  • She has a critical view of most things, and tends to point the moment people are wrong about something.
  • Envious : Malina becomes envious of other's qualities. She rarely speaks of it, but it slips out sometimes. She envies her mother's strength, and she envies someone who is comfortable enough to be who they are. She finds it takes a lot of effort to be herself. This can result in her acting impulsively, or saying crude comments to people, that seem to come out of no where.
  • Moody

{ PERSONALITY }

Malina is a series of complex emotions. She finds spending time alone the most comforting thing; she loves to journal and read books, hang in the library and work on her studies. Living with her mother, Malina gained a cold eye for the world. She sees most things as a prize to achieve. She is the kind of person to set goals every week and follow them through, whether it be with a hobby or a class. Malina tends to spend most of her time wandering Hogwarts with her nose stuck in a book, or just simply sitting outside and being alone.

During the first encounter of meeting someone new, Malina can be quite timid, so she tends to put on a fake personality, trying to be more outgoing than she actually is. It's not that she is trying to be fake, she just does it out of pure fear that people will not like her for who she actually is. She tends to think very low of herself and it often shows in her posture, attitude, and constant swing in moods. She tends to avoid big groups, and rarely is found talking to people. Malina is a very fear-based person. She will base her decisions on other's opinions and will often forget about her own. She is very uncomfortable with being her true self. She does not avoid everyone however, sometimes someone comes along that she actually really enjoys.

Malina, underneath the fear and anxiety, is actually a very loving, and caring person. She is known, however, to care too much for a person, which can seem clingy. She tends to stick to one or two people at a time. She is very loyal, intelligent, and thoughtful, she just is overrun by her angst most of the time. Malina is very connected to her inner child, and loves being silly and making people laugh, and she is often daydreaming.




Image


{ MOTHER }
Image
Her mother's name is Adrianna Anderson, her maiden name was Kou, she prefers to use her maiden name in the business world... She is one of those women who seems just.... Unstoppable. She is a micromanager, she knows what goes on every day of every hour. She raised Malina after her dad left. She's the type of woman who can walk backwards, in heals, balancing coffee in one hand, and checking out homework with another, while making doctor appointments. She is independent, and sometimes cold, although she had a "hand's off" approach during Malina's childhood, she still kept her firm grip on her daughter as well.

{ FATHER }
Malina has very little recollection of her father. She does not find this insulting that he wasn't there to watch her grow into a person, she believes he had his reasons. Although she tries to reason with the situation, she still wishes she had a father figure.

{ FRIENDS }

Annalisse Maeven
Image
Malina and Anna have been friends since birth. It's probably one of the reasons Malina has a hard time finding new friends, she is so stuck on her best friend back home.

Minah Chase
Image
Minah and Malina. The dynamic M's. Malina and Minah have been friends since their second year at Hogwarts. Sharing a love for nerdom, potions and sweets. Although.. .She tends to eat all Malina's home baked sweets and Malina's candy stash in the trunk near her bed. Malina tends to envy Minah's extroverted personality though, and sometimes becomes awkward about it, to Malina's luck though, Minah does not think much of it and tends to let it slide under the rug.
~*~*~*Will add more~*~*~*~


{ ENEMIES }

"I try not to be enemies with people, but who knows maybe someone does hate me and I'm living rent free in their head."

{ SWEETHEARTS }

Malina does not have any crushes yet.

{ HISTORY }
Malina was born in the muggle world, in the heart of London with her mother, who after going to Hogwarts decided she wanted to get in the real world and settle down with a husband and put the magic behind her. Malina was born on a dark December afternoon, and when Malina turned one her parents divorced. She never saw her dad after that, and she wasn't sure why. While Malina was growing up, she went to a regular school and excelled in all her classes. Malina was extremely book smart, but not extremely people smart. She was, most of the time, drifting off into her own world, writing fantasy stories, drawing magical creatures and she always had a feeling there was something bigger than her just waiting to come into her life.

Malina was a young soul, a daydreamer. She was very imaginative, intelligent and loved to create things. Her head was always in the clouds, Malina was very quiet, and loved just spending her time outside.

Malina's mother was a big influence through her life, being the only parent figure, Malina was often terrified she didn't make her mother proud. She consistently was concerned with how she was viewed in her mother's eyes, and often worried she wasn't doing enough. This was mostly due to the fact her mother was working full time and often came home late from work meetings, and normally left Malina to raise herself, which resulted in Malina becoming very independent.

Years passed and Malina received her letter from Hogwarts. Her mother sent her there on the conditions she would follow all the rules, and used her time wisely, otherwise Malina would be pulled immediately. Her mother saw Hogwarts as an opportunity, not a right. Malina went to her new school with hopes she could make a name for herself. Her first potions class set her heart on learning all about potions and possibly even teaching it.




Image




Image
{ WAND }
She's named him "Mr. Pointy" due to the undeniable point at the tip that seems to noticeably jut out. It is Acacia wood: A very unusual wand wood, which creates tricky wands that often refuse to produce magic for any but their owner, and also withhold their best effects from all but those most gifted. It's core is a dragon heartstring. The flexibility, and durability, of her wand is decent, she could throw it and it wouldn't snap.

{ FAMILIAR }
A beautiful cat she named Dexter. He is two years old. When she began Hogwarts she had started out with an owl, like most, but her owl and her never really got along, so her mother got her Dexter and she has really connected with Dexter the past two years.

{ COLOR }
Blue

So begins...

September First - Arriving at Hogwarts - Start of Term
Cloudy (overcast) - Medium temperature - Rain in the evening - Gusty


ImageImage
The sky hung heavy over the castle, bearing down upon it and closing it off from the outside world. The clouds were only just beginning to open up as the carriages picked their way across the grounds of Hogwarts, and something about the air pressure this year was different. Lee Jordan recognized the feeling here from long ago, this was a kind of hush he hadn't felt in his bones for more than two decades. Still, most of the students seemed unaffected by the feeling of dread in the Headmaster's gut, so he dismissed it.
There had been no problems with the train, nor any with the carriages, and under the lake the squid slowly stirred, rising a single eye to look up at the dark wool clouds and decide that it was best to stay underwater. Somewhere a thestral screeched and a hippogriff near Hagrid's old shack returned the call.
As the first carriage reached the castle and the students began to pile out, a beam of lightning arced across the sky, crackling in a semicircle across the far southern horizon. The headmaster turned from his window as an owl crossed it, and returned to his preparations for the feast.
By the time the sorting began everything was normal; the feeling had died down in Lee Jordan's gut, and he was able to sit comfortably before his students, slowly filing in and sitting at their house's table. He smiled. He'd convinced himself; this would simply be another year. Perhaps even the kind of year Hogwarts used to see; brave and exciting and full.

ALBUS SEVERUS POTTER
Great Hall - ~200 words - Open/Not interacting
Albus never had an easy time with the beginning of term feast, or with any of them,
really. He didn't like the crowds, nor the noise, and they were usually so much more
intense than dinner or the classes taught in the Great Hall. It didn't help that the room
itself echoed so ominously or that the new first years always clamored and chattered
away until their nerves died down. It wasn't necessarily that he hadn't done the same,
and Albus didn't blame them for it, but entering the great hall still hit him with a sense
of fear and anxiety that he couldn't quite explain and that he didn't want any part in.
It was all he could do not to turn tail and run right that second, back to the Slytherin
dorm so he could find his things and disappear into his bed and maybe find Scorpius.
Scorpius! Right, that might make things better, having a friend around. He gave the
tables a cursory glance, quick and uncertain, before skittering to the very corner at the
very end of the Slytherin table and then taking the seat one to the center of the table
from it. The snake in his breast pocket stirred quietly before poking her nose out and
letting her tongue flap and rattle through the air. Albus gently pressed her nose back
down into his pocket and looked around nervously, trying to spot someone he knew.


Image
LOUIS WILLIAM WEASLEY
Great Hall - ~200 words - Open/Not interacting
Louis was being stubborn. Slightly more stubborn than usual, but this book he'd picked
up for the train was incredibly good and he just couldn't exactly bring himself to drag
his attention away from it for long enough not to trip and fall on his face (and the book
he'd been holding in front of it from the moment he sat down on the train right through
until he'd attempted to get off the carriage). Standing up and grumbling curses to himself,
Louis retrieved his book from the mud and glared up at the sky as it started to drizzle.
He flicked some mud from the dustjacket of his book and started the short trek into the
Great Hall. He didn't appreciate the naming nor the huge array and amount of people in
the room, but Louis also elected not to care at the moment. He found a seat near the
center of the Gryffindor table and set himself down with a grunt before opening the book
again over his plate and cursing when he realized he'd gotten mud on his plate. Frustrated,
he closed the book and glared around the room, shooting the first years a cocked eyebrow
and a look of slight distrust. One of them shuddered and Louis couldn't help but laugh a little
to himself before looking around at the rest of the Gryffindors and saying a few quiet hellos.

Malina {Grand Hall/Not Interacting}

Image
Image

A long sigh left Malina's lips as she rested her head upon the table, the idea of sleep lingered over her head like a puffy rain cloud. She was picturing that she was on a hammock with a really intriguing book, somewhere deep in the woods where the sun sparkles through the trees. Yet the sounds of the Grand Hall were too over powering and seemed to drag her back into reality. She groaned.

What she wouldn't give for a nice relaxing bath and some serious Z's. Malina never slept well the day before going back to Hogwarts, too many thoughts were normally clouding her mind, keeping her awake till dawn broke over the horizon.

In all honesty, and anxiety put aside, the brunette couldn't be happier to be back at school, the dull summer of muggle life seemed to drag on and she had been looking for some excitement. Malina had spent almost all of her summer working at a pastry store, only a few blocks from her house, and under the employment of a old crabby Russian lady named Ruth Kotch. The eight hour shifts were long, and brutal, filled with Ruth normally yelling and throwing things in the back, but as soon as Malina clocked out, she would end up walking over to her best friend Annalisse's house, and they would normally spend the rest of the day together. Although it was fun to spend time away from studying, magic, and the chaos of Hogwarts, Malina still found it hard to comply with the muggle world after being exposed to the wizard world.

Dragging herself out of her own thoughts, Malina finally picked her head up from her hazy daze. Taking a plate, Malina began to pile on the sweets, picking out some of her favorites: a piece of carrot cake, two cupcakes, a few brownies and she topped it off with a nice steamy cup of sweetened coffee. She gave a small smile of victory, knowing her mother wasn't here to judge her on what she was eating.

As the thought of her mother trumped across her brain, Malina began to frown, Damn...Now my carrot cake tastes like guilt... She thought to herself, her head hanging in a bit of shame as she took another bite out of the carrot cake anyway.

|| Great Hall || Interacting ||




This morning had been, if anything, exhausting. There was a certain emptiness to the many phases of starting the school year when it came to Hogwarts. Not really emptiness, per-say, but the feeling of leaving behind his parents for another year felt like tearing; the beginning feels sort of awful, the reminder that he wasn't a child anymore, but then the on-going feeling of that connection being ripped. Yes, he could call his parents while he was there, but that wasn't really expected of a seventeen-year-old, to seek out the comfort of their parents. Then, after that, he'd have to sit through the drawling theatrical experience of his sister's departure, and his brother's lack thereof, but after all, that didn't take long. All that mattered was he was here now.

Striding down the large hallway with a grin plastered across his face was the infamous James Potter. It was a wonder to him, and basically everyone else why he was head boy of Gryffindor, but he wasn't going to just question the "perfectly wrapped gift" left so conveniently for his taking. Besides, he got a fancy pin to go with it! James paused and gazed over the colony of heads, looking for someone of interest. He briefly studied the long table of Ravenclaws, until he spotted a particular person...

"Mal!" James called, his smile seemingly brighter than before. He hadn't gotten a chance to meet with her yet, but he was pleased to see she was still alive, he would have been rather disappointed otherwise. The eldest Potter boy made his way down to the Ravenclaw table hastily, throwing himself beside her dramatically, and bumping anyone near her out of the way. It was certainly unbecoming of head boy, especially since he wasn't even at his own house table. It was only a matter of time before the Potter was snapped at by the headmaster. Propping his head up on the table by the means of his arm, he examined her with curled eyebrows and a flirty, day-dreaming expression. James knew this inevitably got at her, for she didn't like to messed with. The Gryffindor scooted even closer, just so that their hips met, only to add to the uncomfortable and brilliant act. "Someone needs their beauty-rest," he snickered, showing off his toothy grin.

Malina Anderson
{Grand Hall: Interacting}


Image

Head hung over her carrot cake, Malina scraped the frosting off the sides of the cake, hastily licking it off the fork. The guilt slowly faded away with every bite that she took.

"MA!" Malina heard her name screamed over the chaos of the Grand Hall. Her head swiveled over towards the voice, and she noticed James swaggering over towards her. As James made his way over towards the Ravenclaw table, he almost seemed to float by the rest of the people. A smirk flickered across her face, for she had not seen James since the end of last year, and in all honestly she was glad to see him. Malina enjoyed James's company, he always seemed genuine and he had this way of making her laugh.

The Gryffindor pushed away some of the Ravenclaw's and sat next to her, getting utterly close to where their hips were touching. Malina blushed, but put her head down just in time so her dark curls seemed to act as a curtain until the redness in her cheeks passed. James swung his arm out, resting his cheek upon it, a flirty expression flickered on his face.

"Someone needs their beauty-rest." He pointed out, a smirk creeped over his lips.

"I suppose so, sleep does sound pretty nice." She giggled, finishing her carrot cake and turned her attention towards the two cupcakes on her plate: one with chocolate frosting, and one with vanilla. She grabbed the vanilla one and offered it to James, "Care for a cupcake, I fear my eyes were bigger than my stomach."

Her lips slowly curled into a smile, and she took a long breath in, "Soo..How was your summer, Mr. Potter?" She looked over at him, her eyes meeting with his for a brief moment. She then grabbed her cup of coffee, focusing her energies on something else other than his flirty attitude.

James sparkled with contentment, overjoyed to be reunited with his friend, yet he never let his lovesick expression fade from sight. He declined the cupcake with the wave of his hand, before pulling his glasses from his robe and putting them on. Now he could finally make out Malina's features. He could make out her dark hair, and her fascinating hazel eyes. James seemed to bounce with happiness when his vision was cleared.

"My summer? Hmm..." The Potter let his stare fall to the table in a contemplated, stagey manner. What did he do this summer, that was a good question. He then he looked back up at her with a wrinkled nose. "Rather dull, if you should ask me, except for that thing with the donkey," he stated, chuckling, and as if it were obvious what had happened, "that was spectacular." James trailed off, going no further into the topic. He found that he liked watching her emotions change behind her eyes, how he could light her up in a matter of seconds with a simple joke. It put him in a state of reverie. "Now tell me, how was your summer, my dear Ms. Anderson?" The Potter glanced at her food. He was too excited to be hungry, he feared he might be sick if he even attempted to eat anything, regardless any sweets.

Malina
{Grand Hall: Interacting with James Potter}


"My summer? Hmm..." James paused for a moment, which made Malina look up from her plate. He seemed to be racking his brain for an answer, in a rather theatrical manner nonetheless.

Wrinkling his nose, he seemed to finally come to an answer, "Rather dull, if you should ask me, except for that thing with the donkey," he began to laugh, and Malina raised her eyebrow, "That was spectacular."

Trailing off, James seemed to almost shut off the rest of his thoughts, leaving Malina with no leads into what he might be referring too. A smirk flickered across her lips and she chewed on the inside of her cheek slightly.

"Now tell me, how was your summer, my dear Ms. Anderson?" The boy's eyes slid down to her plate of treats as he waited.

"Well," Malina sighs, taking her coffee and taking a sip, "I.. worked mostly... spent time with my mother..." her eyes trail off for a moment as salty emotions bubbled up inside her for a moment. She took a deep breath, letting the emotion subside before she continued, "I also saw my friend, but.. nothing else too exciting, I'm afraid I'm utterly boring." She chuckled, more so out of feeling awkward than anything else.

Malina felt like she never had exciting things to do, or talk about. She was always too nervous to do anything crazy, or insane, which in teen years results to a boring routine of school work, and following orders. She unwraps the cupcake and takes a bite out of it, hoping it would sooth her nerves. The sugar and soft cake sparked her tongue and she happily took another bite.

|| Great Hall || No longer Interacting || Open ||




Please, The head boy scoffed, “I’ll be the judge of boring.” He gave devious grin as if he were planning something else- “And Mal, you are certainly not it.” -But disappointingly, he did absolutely nothing. James brushed her hand gently, giving her an, actually, very normal smile. Wiith that, he stood. ”I’m sorry to say, I should get going, got a load of terrified first years to round up.” James turned to begin his path toward the Gryffindor table, before stopping dead in his tracks. He faced her again, gradually. ”It’s very nice to see you, Malina. Have a good year.” Finally, James made his round to Gryffindor table, playfully high-fiving the newer students. Everyone knew Gryffindor was a proud house, but today must’ve felt like the most monumental day in the whole world.

James felt relieved to speak with Malina, as brief as it was, it felt like an eternity since he’d seen her face, and he knew there had been many times (very many) that she had not wished to see his. Luckily, this wasn’t one of one of those times. His gaze drifted idly across the bunch of students. James wouldn’t eat tonight, for he knew he wouldn’t finish it, but that didn’t stop him from trying to catch a couple friends…

Malina
{Grand Hall: Not Interacting}

”Please,” a devilish smile appeared on his face, “I’ll be the judge of boring.”

“And Mal, you are certainly not it.” Malina smiled as James brushed his fingers over her hand. Malina blushed as she noticed his normal smile, his true smile. She felt burst of happiness rattle her bones, and a chill shuddered up her spine.

”I’m sorry to say, I should get going, got a load of terrified first years to round up..." He seemed flustered as he stood, Malina sat up a bit straighter, taking a small breath as he took a few steps away.

He turned towards her once more, their eyes meeting, Malina turned her head to the side, curious to know what he was going to say next, "It’s very nice to see you, Malina. Have a good year.”

"You too.." The last words exhaled out of her lungs, but not loud enough for him to hear. She watched James slip over to his table, giving some of the new recruits high fives.

Malina turned back to her cup of coffee and began chewing on her lower lip...What was he playing at? He couldn't just touch her hand like that... smile at her like that... did it mean anything? Or was it just some kind of James-play... Shaking her head, a strand of her hair fell in her face and she exhaled quickly to push it out of the way.

Maybe she was over thinking everything... James liked her, as a friend....They were friends... Right??

"Lina! Boys and girls cannot be friends, especially teenagers." Annalisse's voice rang in Malina's head... Malina could almost see the smug smile Anna would normally give her when Malina's head was in the clouds. Maybe Anna was right... Besides, Malina was ultimately too shy to say anything to James about these feelings that were bubbling up.

"Ughh..." The brunette muttered under her breath, swirling the coffee in her cup, taking another sip; she could already feel her body being over taken with the jitters. Taking a look around, she noticed Minah, and a few others, but found herself locked in her seat.
