ALICE LONGBOTTOM
History
Well, first, I'd just like to thank you for reading about me - it's a kind gesture, I think, having people actively try to learn more about you.

My name is Alice Longbottom. Those in the research realm know me pretty well, but the general public, specifically the elderly, get me confused with my late grandmother. She looked like me at twenty - er, or I looked like her when she was twenty. My dad always shows me pictures of her. Bit strange to have grandparents with such a dark history, though mum's side is thankfully a lot more normal.

Where to begin? When I was born, I took a couple moments before I began crying - longer than usual, mum said. The nurses thought there might be something off with me, so they whisked me away for a bit. I was just a quiet baby, until I grew old enough to run around with Frank. My big brother was bloody wild, and I got very excited when I watched him play.

While Frank helped mum out at the Leaky Cauldron, I sat in the corner on a stool, reading books. Reading's fundamental, you know, so I found myself quickly going through the family library. At one point, I started asking for muggle books. The Leaky Cauldron's probably not the best place for a little girl to be reading, but no one really bothered me there. The voices of the people there gave me comfort, more than a quiet, empty bedroom would.

To be frank, my first few years at Hogwarts weren't the best. I was riddled with anxiety and was generally just sad to be away from home. Nothing felt right - everything was just slightly off. It forced me to go into my books more, which was great for my grades, but not so much for my social life. I watched Frank get bullied at school, which I couldn't do much about - I just got scared and hid. I watched him stand up for himself. You'd think I'd feel good about that - but instead, I just hated myself for being placed in Gryffindor and not being brave.

A group of Gryffindor girls took me under their wing, after I'd finally gained the courage to speak up in class. I was an intelligent student, and the professors encouraged me to continue participating. So I joined study groups, I joined a club or two - things started feeling better. Herbology became my favourite subject, just like dad. The thing about the Sorting Hat is that it can see that even if you start out confused about which house you should be in, it knows where to put you. The hat knows what kind of person you're going to turn into - a quiet, half-brave, bookish girl.

I'm quite good at doing research. I use spells to learn more about plants and I send the information out to the world. Graduating was easy, though I felt like I'd been lacking some experience in the wizarding world. Still, with my books and all, I independently do research for the Ministry on all things plant-related. It's a small department that no one really knows about.

I'm behind in life. I've never even kissed anyone. I'm twenty, for Merlin's sake. Is that even normal? I'm not quite sure how I'd even go about getting all that figured out. My brother has a daughter - I'm an adult aunt who has never been in a real relationship. I can't help but feel like I'm missing out on something.
