I used to believe that I could get away with anything.

I am really good with making up stories. Dad always appreciates it, he told me that I have a good imagination. He said it’s important to have a good imagination. He said if it wasn’t because of it, he wouldn’t have his job, and he wouldn’t have mom, and he wouldn’t have me. I guess you can say that he’s the one who taught me how to fib. We used to play this game called “Who can tell the biggest fib” a lot. Sometimes we played it on mom, she was never too happy about it, so most of the time we played it on each other.

Once, I told him I had seen a dragon before and he told me that he had caught a dragon before. Then, I told him how I sneaked out of the house when they were asleep and he told me how he sneaked in the house when I was asleep. I told him how I could disappear into the thin air and he told me how I would not be seeing him for a bit.

That last one wasn’t a fib. I didn’t see him three weeks after he said that.

And the next time I saw him, it was right before mom and I moved to London.

He said he’d come and visit often, but I guess that one was a fib.

Or a lie, whichever. I don’t really know how to distinguish the two.
When I was about eight, I stayed a few days at the castle.

Mom had some business to take care of outside London and while I appreciated grandma’s company, the place was rather boring without the boys. So I made my uncle took me with him to the castle. I think he enjoyed my company, especially because I am not loud like the boys and I’m really good with making conversation, even with people much older than me.

I guess it’s the good imagination thing dad was talking about.

I was a little disappointed when Uncle William left right before my first year in the castle, I thought we would have so much fun in the castle. It would be nice having someone you knew in somewhere so new, but I guess the bright side is, he wouldn’t accidentally tell someone the silly things I’d done when I was a kid.
Sometimes, I think mom’s life goal is to make my life miserable.

It’s a pretty mean thing to say, I know, and I probably would never say something like this in front of her because I’m not a mean person. But sometimes, I think she has no clue of what she’s doing. Like for example, I wanted to spend last Christmas with dad and his new family because I hadn’t seen him for more than two years, but she insisted on me staying with her.

In the end, I spent most of my time ignoring her.

I don’t think anyone won that fight.
Turning fifteen felt kinda funny.

Perhaps it was because mom threw me a bigger birthday party than before or perhaps because we all knew fifteen was the OWL year. Whatever it was, fifteen felt different. Dad said he was going to show up, although at the end, he got too busy with work. But he managed to send me a card, so that wasn’t too bad. It was something I can keep and the next time I see him, he definitely owe me one.

Now that I think about it, I haven’t seen him in about three years. He seems to be really busy lately.

House Request: Ravenclaw or Slytherin

Personality: One of the most accurate ways to describe Francesca is responsive. She is easily driven by the circumstances and people around her, which sometimes make her moody and overly sensitive to others responses. When frustrated, she often sulk and wallow in self-pity. Even though she recognises it and knows how childish she could be sometimes, she didn’t think she has the willpower to change it.

Appearance:Smiles come easily to her, almost like an automatic response, just like muttering the word “sorry” is an automatic response to some people. She stood at only 5’3” but often looks taller from the way she talks and behaves. She inherited her mother’s facial features, brown hair and blue eyes, but her father’s sense of humour. She loves sweaters and often buys her clothes in pairs.

Please reply to one of the Sample Roleplays below.


She ignored the voice, she wasn’t one to respond to a hey. Especially not in a school, in a place where “hey” are such a common greeting between students. If she was to respond to every single “hey”, she’ll have no time to do anything else aside from responding to those hey.

“Wait up! It’s for the paper!”

Well, now that she heard it, she was definitely not stopping for this one.

“What do you think about serving frog legs at lunch? Some say it’s a delicacy, but others think it’s plain gross.”

“I don’t know, Astrid.” She replied, closing her book and forcing her attention to the other girl. It was too late to avoid her now that she was right in front of her. Her lips pulled tighter as she tilted her head and watched Astrid. She had known the other girl since eleven and it was curious how Astrid still behaved like an eleven year old most of the time.

“What do you think about returning my book?”

Astrid had had it for almost two months now. If she wasn’t going to read it, she should simply return it.
