This RP journal is an example of what happens when a good RPG goes bad. What happens when people are too immature to be able to funtion normally in character. This was my first RPG, and I carry a lot of memories from it, both good and bad. But immaturity, as well as people being biased who have no right to do so, will be the downfall of sly_therin. You mark my words.

I spent the first five years of my education at Beauxbatons. How I got here is a rather a hard thing to explain, but I'll try my best.
My parents were originally from France, but I grew up with them in England.When it came time for me to start school, they felt that Beauxbatons was the best choice for me. So I lived with my grandmother and went to school there for my first five years.
But once the war started, they preferred that I be closer to them, so here I am at Hogwarts. It's new, but I'm adjusting just fine and hope to make some friends!
Basics Name: Melody Rose de Thenard Nicknames: Ro', Melove (but only Shay calls me that), Mel'. Age: Seventeen Birthday: July 23 Bloodline: Of pure blood, not that it really matters. Gender: Female House: Gryffindor Year: Seventh Wand:Black Walnut/Maple, 12 3/4 Inches, Silver Thistle. Quidditch: Well, before I was terrified of heights, but now I love to fly. Special House Positions: Gryffindor House Prefect.
Physical Eyesight: Near perfect. Hearing: Very good. Left/Right/Ambi: Lefty. Disabilities/Handicaps: None Physical Health: Good.
Psychology IQ: Average. I'm certainly no Hermione... Extrovert/Introvert: Extroverted, around people I know. Otherwise? Painfully shy. Phobias/Fears: Heights. I'm terrible with them. Although I'm getting better. Mental Health: Typical for a teenager. A bit angsty, but otherwise fine.
Personality Goals/Dreams: I haven't any idea, which is rather unfortunate in this stage of life. Quirks: I'm moody. Likes: Well, the normal teenager stuff. Friends. I also like books, especially ones about history. They're fascinating. I also like to take pictures when I get the chance to. Dislikes: I've never understood those who are haughty about bloodlines. I'm a pureblood myself, but I'd never look down on someone because of their blood. I also dislike ignorance. First Impression: I think I'm nice....too much so, sometimes. Philosophy of Life: Love and friendship are more important than anything. Value those you love more than you value yourself.
Family and Friends Parents: Father and mother, they're both Unspeakables. Siblings: I'm an only child, but not spoiled like most other only children I seem to know. Friends: Hermione, Grace, Dean, Shay.
Appearance Height: 5'5 Weight: Oh, I'd say around 120ish Eyes: Brown Hair: Dark brownish, almost black. Used to reach halfway down my back, but I recently cut it to a little above shoulder length.

Romantic Marital Status: Shay <3 Sexual Preference: Shay.... Turn ons: Charm, a nice Irish accent is always good....a sense of humor and trustworthiness. Turn offs: Ignorance, someone who keeps secrets Past Relationships: There's been a suspicious lack of past relationships in my life. The guys at Beauxbatons weren't very friendly to me.
Favourites Animal: I've never really thought about it. Book: I can't recall the name, but it was about the witch whose entire family was murdered by You-Know-Who. It was interesting and saddening. Colour: Red and black. Drink: I'm addicted to butterbeer. Food: I have a terrible addiction to French fries. They aren't french, and they're a muggle food, but they're quite good. Music: I'll listen to mostly anything. Class: Well, if that bloke Binns didn't teach it, I'm sure History of Magic has the potential to be a great class! I also love Defense Against the Dark Arts. It's terribly useful. Scent: That hard to describe scent of a familiar place you enter for the first time after a long time away. Thing To Do: Talk with Seamus, be with my friends, read.
Least Favourite Book: That one that suggests all non-pureblood witches and wizards should be treated as Muggles. Colour: Pea-soup green. It's quite ugly. Drink: Coffee. Blech Music: Anything you can't understand the words to. Class: I've been having trouble with Transfiguration, lately. Scent: I'd have to think about that. Thing To Do: Homework. Trying to sit and concentrate on one thing for too long is too hard for me to do.
