About Me
What is magic? Its not something that can be physically touched nor something that can conquered. Instead magic is experienced, its a process of discovery and the underlying force that drives our world. Its the mysteries of the supernatural and the hidden wonders of the world.

Me, myself, I only hope to attain a small fraction of everything magic has to offer. My life has never been anything of the spectacular, but I've made the most of it. Magic has always been my salvation, and its in its this truth I've lived. My parents never fed me with a silver spoon but I'm not one to become bitter or cold about it like most of my peers. Magic has always helped me there.

I consider myself to be a fair person, giving everyone the same treatment. I suppose its sort of expected when you've raised yourself. Magic isn't always a good thing, my father learned that the hard way. But its magic that even kept him alive, and its magic that gave my mother the strength to press onward. I don't hold it against them for forgetting about me, they've enough to worry about on their own, especially with Padme, my twin sister who had never experienced magic before. We don't really talk much anymore either.

I made the most of it however, I've made a family with the world around me and as long as I have that, magic and my music, then I have nothing else to fear. Let's only hope that Hogwarts can offer me the same hope.

If it should not, I'll still take what I can from the experience. Think about it this way; How does a boy who falls, no, actually jumps, eyes wide open, down a rabbit hole, plummeting into chaos, come out unchanged? The answer: He doesn't.
