weight: 120 lbs.
general description: isabella is on the taller and skinnier side. though that doesn't mean she isn't in fighting shape. quidditch has made her leaner and given her a good throwing arm. generally her hair is pulled back into a ponytail to keep it out of her eyes but she is too vain to just cut it off. in her mind her hair is her best feature. She tends to keep her outfits simple and ones that don't get ruined if thrown on the floor after a particularly hard day.

history: isabella beatrice finnigan was born to her parents one sunny june day. she was given her great-grandmother's name as her middle name and her grandmother's name as her first name. not only was she raised by the finnigan family but the thomas family had a large impact in her life. often she spent more time at her aunt and uncles house then she did her own. because of this she formed a strong bond with kian thomas and often called him her favorite brother.
at the age of seven isabella had her first taste of what fear was. hide-and-seek was a favorite game of the children and during one of these adventures isabella was locked inside the attic. no one knows how the door got locked but not a single person realized that it was stuck or that the little girl was missing until quite some time had past. they all had thought that she was visiting the thomas family and when they realized that she wasn't there almost five hours had gone past. searching the house high and low they finally found the wayward child curled up in a ball next to the door with tears streaming down her face. after that incident it was known by the family not to keep any of the doors locked if they didn't want to see their middle child cry.
after the attic incident isabella started to become infatuated with the sky. she would spend hours outside just watching the clouds travel. seamus soon taught his middle child how to flying and once isabella had a broom stick in her hand she never wanted to touch the ground again. watching her older brother go to hogwarts and hearing his stories of the quidditch games made izzy want to grow up even faster. her first year at school she could barely contain herself and the only thing keeping her in her seat was having kian around. now that she is at hogwarts she is the happiest she has ever been. there is a quidditch team to be on, a large library full of books to read, and best of all no parents always worried about having locked doors around her.

experience:i have been rping for going on like eight years now. though for a while there i took a break because of family emergencies.
sample: the attic was cold and dark. she had never visited this part of the house before and now the little girl never wanted to visit again. she had thought that this would be the best place to hide. no one ever looked in the attic and the only person who ever did enter in the storage area was her mother. isabella had tried banging on the door but no one seemed to notice and eventually she just gave up. the attic door was at the top of the house and not many people went up there during the day. plus, it was too late to catch any of her siblings that might have been up there looking for her.
she had tried to ignore her panic and investigate what might be hidden in this new room but that interest had worn off quickly. now all she could do was curl up as small as she could be and cry. closed spaces had never bothered her before but now that she was locked in it felt like the walls were closing in on her. being only seven she didn't know what to do to stop herself from panicking. all she could was cry. it felt like the tears would never end. everything was a blur once her parents found her. all isabella could do was cling to her mother. eventually she passed out but it was to be confronted by dreams of being back in that attic.
it took some time but eventually the nightmares started to disappear. learning to fly was the last piece of the puzzle that made the dreams of the attic leave. the only times they returned was when something very horrible happened in her life. thankfully those didn't happen often or she would have tried to find some professional help about them. locked doors inside her house still made her panic but never as bad as before and not often with the nightmares.

Welcome to Broomsticks & Fire! We are a post-potter rpg set in the year 2023.
Things have been pretty peaceful in the wizarding world.
That is, it was peaceful until an attack killed five aurors, one of them being Ronald Weasley,
beloved father, husband, and one third of the trio that had destroyed Lord Voldemort. Sure an auror's
job is dangerous, but to have five killed in one attack is almost unheard of anymore. It has several people
wondering if the Death Eaters are again at large. The Order of the Phoenix has been reactivated and is now being
headed by none other than Harry Potter himself, giving hope that their world can soon return to peace again.
Snow often covers the Hogwarts campus these days. Winter has begun and there is a sharp chill in the air. Better bundle up if you expect
to be going anywhere.

Happy Holidays! As a special treat we have revamped the site. If you notice anything off, let us know. Our new template is best viewed in IE and
We have re-opened the site! Hurrah! As you may have noticed, we have also added a new skin as well. "Love Struck - Second Edit" is the name of
our newest skin. We have kept the layout because it works well for the site. If you want to go back to the original skin, it should be labeled
as "Love Struck." Just a little note, the cbox may look a little out of place on that skin now as we have changed the colors to fit the new skin.
Also, if you haven't noticed. Our IC Cbox has been upgrated, so it now autorefreshes. Keep in mind that the IC is not a subsitute for threading
but a place to play in real time with your characters. Not everything (or anything) that happens in the cbox has to be part of the site plot.
