Astro’s family might not have been picture perfect, but they were about as close as you could get. A beautiful, wonderful mother who kissed your scrapes and who you could talk to about anything. A father who may not have been around as much as anyone would have liked, but who worked hard for his family, giving little Astro a fantastic person to look up to. Three amazing sisters, the best influences that she could ask for. Two fantastic brothers who taught her that not all boys were totally gross.  Not to mention, a million and ten different cousins and relatives to fill in any gaps.

Astro grew up always looking up to her older siblings, begging to be brought along to whatever they were doing, even if she wasn’t interested. But when this didn’t work out, she never struggled to find things to do or wallowed in her loneliness though. She filled the hours with her own creative pursuits, flying practice, or whatever happened to catch her attention until her family returned and included her again.

The worst was when all of her siblings started disappearing off to school one by one, until it was just her and Asher left at home. The day that the twins went off to school was the worst of her life, leaving her angry and wanting revenge for the abandonment. She’d gone through and torn their room apart, only to feel guilty a few days later, when she’d meticulous returned every last thing to its original spot.

The years between the twins going to school and her own first year at Hogwarts were long, but it gave her the chance to explore outside of her family. She met new friends, spent more time with extended family, and explored her own interests further.

Finally, it was her turn to go to Hogwarts and she had plans to take it by storm.

House Request:

Astro likes to think that she has the best qualities from all of her siblings. While this may not necessarily be true, there is one thing she definitely has: confidence. Whether it’s a social situation, an academic task to accomplish, or becoming the world’s best fashion designer, Astro believes that she’s got it.

Not that she’s 100% decided to be a fashion designer. She does really love clothes and fashion magazines and coming up with her own ideas. But she also really loves playing quidditch and that could be fun too. Or it would be so cool to have her own girl group like the muggle ones that she loves listening to. Any of those will do, really.

Sometimes she worries though. Not that she can’t get there, but that she might do all that work and not like it. Or that she won’t be able to get her stuff exactly right. And don’t even get her started about her family.

But she's pretty good at distracting herself. Always the social butterfly, she could always forget her worries with a good conversation, an adventure or a party. Just make sure you stay on her good side, okay?

Astro always looks put together and takes great pride in her appearance. She can always be found dressed her in own version of the latest fashions, her hair is always styled, and when she's old enough to wear make up, that will be expertly applied too (she's been practicing every chance she gets).

Option I:

The dungeons. A place eleven-year-old Evangeline had not yet travelled since her arrival at Hogwarts.

A place she really was just fine with not knowing; but it was too late. The dare had been accepted, even if it had been done in fear of being kicked out of Gryffindor, like the older girls had said she would because Gryffindors were supposed to be brave.

The air changed instantly when she hit the main corridor of the dungeons. The dampness was almost too much for her and she instinctively took a deep breath to avoid the sensation of being suffocated. There was also a sour burning smell which Evangeline assumed was from many, many Potions lessons.

Further and further she walked, her steps so slow and gentle they made no noise against the stone walls and floor. The feeling that she wasn't alone crept up her spine and raised the tiny hair on the back of her neck. Shivering, Evangeline wrapped her arms around herself. Suddenly, she missed the warmth and comfort of the Gryffindor common room. The fire was always going and it made her feel at ease.

Why had she let those girls talk her into this? She was only eleven, she didn't have to be brave. Surely the Headmistress would not kick her out of Hogwarts for not being brave.

If only she had these thoughts while being dared to search for the ghost of one Emma Birch, whom supposedly haunted the dungeons. It was not, Evangeline had learned, the place where the sixteen-year-old girl's life had ended but as she had been from the house with a snake as its mascot, it was the place her spirit had returned to. That common room was down here somewhere, she'd been told.

Something - the small blonde girl wasn't quite sure what - but something made her stop in her tracks suddenly. There was a low, dull thumping noise. Or maybe that was her heart beating so loudly she thought it was coming from outside her body.

"H-h-hello?" Her voice was barely above a whisper.

Remembering that she was supposed to be brave, Evangeline tried again.

"Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

The sound of her own words bouncing back at her off the walls made her jump.

Astro was starting to think that she had been lied to. Rumour had it that there was a secret tunnel to Hogsmeade somewhere down in the dungeon, behind some painting or other, but she'd been down there for a while now, and she had yet to see anything even vaguely resembling a tunnel.

How disappointing. She'd been looking forward to a candy shop visit.

She was just about to head upstairs to complain to the person who had lied to her - or maybe leave a toad in their bed or something. She'd decide on the way - when she heard a voice not too far from her.

"H-h-hello? Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

Emma Birch? That ghost that people sometimes talked about? Astro had assumed that was just a story. She was about to keep walking, leaving the ghost hunter to her own adventures, but she stopped. Why not make this journey to the dungeons worth it somehow?

She twisted her expression into something fearful like she'd just seen a ghost herself, approaching the other girl.

"You shouldn't go down there," she said, glancing back the way she had come, feigning nervousness. "That girl - Emma - she wants to be left alone. You should just get out of here."
