Bloom met Eris when she decided to go to the Great Lake to clear her mind. Both of them, liking adventure, went into the lake for a swim and a more in-depth adventure awaited them. Overall, Bloom enjoys her company although she may seem a bit cynical.
Amanda is a second-year Prefect that Bloom met during the Oktoberfest. They knew of each other, but met during the Butterbeer tasting event where they tried different methods of tasting a variety of butterbeer. Bloom finds her to be very nice and fitting to be Prefect.
Second Year:First Year:
There's something about Reid that catches Bloom's attention. She began to feel a bit of the butterflies the more she talked to him. Bloom begins to have feelings for Reid. Bloom ran into Reid in the Owlery, resulting in expressing her feelings. He only wanted to be friends. Bloom, at the moment, is keeping space away from Reid. There had been some awkward encounters with Reid for the next few days: they had to endure an awkward study session on the following Saturday, and they also met Felicity in the library where Bloom and Reid were often left alone thanks to Felicity. Luckily, both of them made up and forgave each other, giving their friendship a second chance. While feelings still lingered, Bloom kept them to the side and befriended Reid. Unfortunately, whenever together something always goes wrong. Perhaps there is not much of a future between Reid and Bloom.
Starting a new year, Bloom has ended her crush on Reid. She realized that her focus has always been with Ben-- even though Ben had been MIA in the summer and in the beginning of the school year. She loves the fact that the two of them can just talk normally.
Bloom meets Serena by accident when she hears her scream in the corridor. Leading Serena to the abandoned bathroom on the second floor, she helps the Hufflepuff with a burn from her tea. As Serena was slowly recovering from the burn, they got to know each other and decided to look around the bathroom. Bloom likes Serena a lot.
Bloom is happy to have a friend like Serena by her side! She bumped into Serena at the Great Lake where she found Serena studying. Her mind, filled with questions about Ben and what she should do was running wild and Serena, who also knew Ben, was a great help in figuring out what Bloom should do next. Bloom's relationship with Serena has gone up a level because of this.
Bloom met Ben when in the Ravenclaw Common Room late at night. It just so happens that Bloom and Ben were both given the title as Prefect. They decided to get to know each other as new partners and later, during their rounds, completely fell head over heels for each other. It wasn't until one of their rounds that Bloom slowly tried to express her like for Ben. Luckily, it did not end in heartbreak like with Reid, but instead, they became romantically involved. Ben and Bloom, now an item, have a lot of obstacles to overcome. Ben was dropped from Prefect duty because of their involvement and Bloom was dropped because of her studies dropping. In turn, they haven't seen each other in awhile as they juggle their social and personal lives. Come to think of it, Bloom hasn't seen Ben in over a week. Perhaps he's alright?
After so much time away from each other, Bloom had finally run into Ben in the library. She was angry, sad and shocked that as his girlfriend, he would just stay away from him with no word for so long. Being so young, Bloom never understood relationships and what they meant, but she sure did know that disappearing was not okay. When she confronted Ben about his disappearance, Ben opened up to her and told her that he was the masked man and that she should stay away from him. Bloom, wanting to be with Ben, listened to his words. She broke up with him and little by little regrets it. As they were baking together in Oktoberfest, she couldn't help but to try to reach out to him and tell him how much she loves him. But it seemed as though he has already moved on as he ignored her subtle glances and physical interactions.
A Ravenclaw who Bloom met through Reid Kovacs. She invited Bloom to a study group that takes place on Saturdays. Bloom agreed to join in, excited that she would also be studying with Reid.
Bloom met Felicity the day she was going through heartache at the Quidditch Pitch. Instantly, these two clicked and Bloom considered Felicity one of her best friends ever. They have a lot in common and Bloom can't see herself good friends with anyone else than with her as Felicity reminds Bloom of her sister, Claire, whom Bloom is also close to. Unfortunately, after her accident where she twisted her ankle, Felicity had disappeared. Bloom is under the impression that she probably went home to recover.
Bloom cannot describe how odd Kaegen is. He seems to be a bit unhuman, but even so, he is very nice.
A fellow Ravenclaw who Bloom became friendly with through Charms class. Bloom finds Venice to be very smart and kind, but she thinks that she likes to study a bit too much.
Bloom finds Aurelia to be rude and rotten. Her first impression of her was when she put down other students because their scary story wasn't up to par to what she thought was scary. Bloom, unable to hold her tongue, put her in her place. She even got angry enough where she threatened her life using Ben. To Bloom, nothing good can come out of this Slytherin.
Bloom met Corvus randomly in the Great Hall when she was skipping out on her afternoon classes. She wanted to collect her thoughts and instead had a bit of quarrel in the beginning, but then they found themselves on the same footing: both of them enjoyed an adventure. Too bad their adventure in the Restricted Area had gotten them both a crappy detention.
A first year Slytherin who runs into Bloom in the study room on the first floor.
Bloom met the first-year Slytherin during Hogwart's Oktoberfest where they bumped into each other tasting different butterbeers. He seems to be quite the gentleman and very nice to both her and another friend who joined them. Bloom enjoys that he is not the usual stereotype of a Slytherin.
A first year Slytherin who Bloom familiarized with at the Ravenclaw table. Erin was blamed for jinxing the Ravenclaw's. She also warned her about Marcus de Wynter. Bloom appreciates the warning but doesn't see herself friendly with Erin any time soon.
A Slytherin that she believed was the cause of her hair falling out from a jinx. Bloom finds him to be a slimy Slytherin but has to deal with him until her favor count is done. She has eleven favors to owe after he cures the jinx for her and the Ravenclaws who were affected. Bloom begins to have feelings for Marcus, but only because Erin Ryan feeds them to her. Luckily, Marcus had left the school to go home. Reasons are unknown.
Bloom Silverton, born October 7th, is a petite eleven-year-old girl with brown eyes and hair who was born in London, England. Her parents, Adam and Ashley, are native-born and raised English magical folk who have two other children: Claire who is the eldest and Bella who is the baby of the family.
As the middle child of the family, Bloom was often forced to be a bit more independent as her parents were often arguing with Claire as she strived for the attention, and Bella was given quite a bit of attention for being the baby of the family. Victim of middle child syndrome is what made Bloom focus more on her imagination rather than on reality-- which makes the ins and outs of reality hard to grasp.
Bloom is known to have an overactive imagination where she always looks for ways to go on and adventure whether that be exploring or just having fun. Her constant day dreaming keeps her mind active with thoughts that are both unique and fun. While some friends enjoy her ideas, there are some that seem off-guard to her endless thoughts. Bloom, having friends who have been annoyed with her before, doesn't seem to mind too much if anyone gets annoyed with her.
One thing Bloom enjoys is writing down whatever she is thinking about in a journal. As a young girl who is trying to understand reality and her place in the world, the use of venting and sharing her emotions constantly helps her learn more and more about herself.
Now accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry, Bloom can perhaps slowly figure out her reality as well as strengthen her imaginative mind into the magical world and learning.
Bloom has heard so much talk about Hogwarts from family and others that she was excited to experience Hogwarts on her own. Entering the Great Hall, Bloom was able to see the grand celebration of the sorting hat. Hopping onto the stool, she was immediately sorted into Ravenclaw without the hat needing to touch her head. She skipped on over to the Ravenclaw table, eager to meet new friends.
Unfortunately, Slytherins decided to put a hair-loss jinx on some of the Ravenclaw's and Bloom was affected along with several other Ravenclaw's. Bloom, unable to get past the fact that her hair was falling out, heard a Slytherin first-year by the name of Marcus de Wynter know the cure for the jinx. Bloom made a deal to owe him not only one favor, but eleven favors to cure her of the jinx and the other Ravenclaw's affected. Immediately thereafter, another Slytherin, Erin Ryan, had wanted to talk to Bloom privately. Let's just say that Bloom's first day of her Hogwarts experience wasn't all rainbows and sunshine's! She's already in such a mess!
Bloom doesn't know what to think anymore. She talks privately with Erin only to find that she could be lying? Erin was filling her head with how much Marcus likes her and that the favors that Marcus will be giving her are going to be completely sexual. Bloom is nervous, but still curious about the whole thing. She begins to create imaginative feelings for Marcus only because she now thinks that he likes her thanks to Erin. Interrupting the girl talk, Marcus comes out of nowhere to give Bloom a vial that contains ten out of the eleven drops to cure the hair-loss jinx. Leaving the two Slytherins, Bloom takes the vial and gives it to the Ravenclaw table first before her. Eventually, she got the last of the cure from Marcus for herself.
She decides to go outside in the courtyard for the first time during her Hogwarts career. Before she stepped out in public, she took a sip of the potion and could feel her scalp burning. Her hair grew back to what it originally was before the jinx. Although, there was a slight change. Her hair happened to be a bit more shiny than before. That didn't bother her. As she ventured outside, she saw a Hufflepuff get tackled down by three students who seemed to be late for class. Bloom grabbed a book closest to her that flew out of his hands and made her way to the Hufflepuff. Introducing himself as Reid Kovacs, Bloom and Reid began to have deep conversations and over time, Bloom began to fall for him. They made a plan to go to the Great Lake in two days time to swim as an adventure.
Later on, Bloom goes to her dormitory named Rowena Ravenclaw and meets her four other dorm mates: Fay Nyxe, Artic Frost, Andrea Baynes and Elizabeth Goldeen. They were all very much excited to meet each other, well, it took Elizabeth a bit. But overall, they all had fun and even discussed about decorating their rooms.
The next day, Bloom gossips with the other Ravenclaw's in the corridor. They were talking about Charms and all the homework that they needed to finish. Luckily, Bloom, who doesn't want to study, was interrupted with a bathroom call. She had to find a restroom and quick. She made her way down the corridor and to the right and found a bathroom. She walked in and saw that it was most likely abandoned. That did not stop Bloom. She went to the restroom and when she was finished, she heard a scream outside in the corridor. She finished her business and made her way to the screaming student. It happened to be a Hufflepuff, Serena Towers. Bloom grabbed her and took her into the bathroom to run her hand, which she happened to burn from hot tea, in room temperature water under the sink. Both girls began to get to know each other, and still excited from meeting Reid the day before, Bloom wondered if Serena knew more about him.
It was then the next day, the day Bloom was looking forward to. She studied for most of the day in the Study Room, where she met another Slytherin, Destrian Dayne. He knocked into her and got angry that she stopped in the middle of the room. Bloom decided to sit with him and tell him that he needed class as a Slytherin. It all backfired and they became friends, studying for Charms and other classes.
Leaving the study a bit early, Bloom went back to her dorm to get ready. She decided to wear a bathing suit underneath her uniform, ready for swimming. It was nearing the time they decided upon and Bloom raced down carefully to the Great Lake. When she got there, Reid was not there yet. She decided to spend some time with herself, feeling excited to see him. When he did come, she got very excited. It wasn't until another Ravenclaw, Dymphna Teague, joined them. Bloom was a little disappointed, but she was also happy to have met someone else from her house and she was also happy to be invited to a study group that also involved Reid.
The next early evening, Bloom goes to the Owlery to send mail to her family. She wanted them to know how much fun she was having. As she made her way to the west tower from her dormitory, she saw Reid on the window pane, looking out towards the Forbidden Forest. Bloom joined him and they had a wonderful conversion, however, Bloom's feelings got a hold of her. She confessed her liking him and he rejected her saying that he was not looking for a relationship. Bloom, holding a brave face, apologized. Reid wanted to stay as friends, but Bloom needed some time to herself.
Soon after, she left and went straight to her dormitory. Her brave face broke down and resulted in a complete break down that exhausted her, putting her to sleep for the night. Bloom woke up early in the morning after passing out from heartache. She told Reid that she liked him and he rejected her on the spot. She decided that staying in doors was not an option and she left the castle to the Great Lake where she sulked to herself. Luckily, her sulking was interrupted with a playful Gryffindor by the name of Ike Corbec.
Feeling only slightly better after spending time with Ike, Bloom was still a little down in the dumps. It had only been a full day since she had told Reid that she liked him and he rejected her. Bloom, in the middle of crying, is interrupted by an outgoing and friendly Ravenclaw first-year, Felicity Greenwich. Bloom, often reminded of her sister through Felicity's upbeat personality, felt so much better about her decision to tell Reid and had her heart mended. She was glad to not only meet a friend, but perhaps a friend that she could see herself grow through Hogwarts with. Bloom and Felicity decided to meet the next morning in the library as Felicity shared with Bloom, having strong feelings of friendship with Bloom, about her visions and dreams. The next day, they were to research about them.
Bloom, finally feeling better, was still unable to sleep. She decided to stay in the common room throughout late at night near the fireplace. She then got a little enchanted note in the shape of a butterfly heading in her direction. Bloom read the note and was told that she earned the title of Ravenclaw Prefect. Unsure of how she could deserve such a title, she also met (by chance) her partner, Ben Eckendrode, who came into the common room late at night. They both got to know each other and Bloom began to have some feelings for him.
The next morning, Bloom meets Felicity Greenwich at the library. She made sure that they would be in the corner near the old books as she shared with her about the dreams or visions that she may be having. Off the corner of Bloom's eye, she see's Reid Kovacs come their way and Bloom freaked out and mentioned in earshot to Reid that she made Prefect and that she had a date with Ben Eckendrode. She thought that it would make Reid jealous, but it wasn't so. Luckily, though, Reid and Bloom talked to each other and forgave each other about the night in the Owlery. They are hopefully to become the best of friends with one another. Finally mending with one another, Bloom and Reid made their way to Felicity where they began to ask the Librarian about a book Bloom saw that disappeared instantly as if it was alive, along with other books on Divination.
Bloom and Ben Eckenrode had their first night doing their rounds and at first it became a bit awkward in the beginning. Apparently, Felicity had told Ben about the date that Bloom forgot to tell her it was fake. Thankfully, Ben was understanding and in fact, it made Bloom want to share her feelings for Ben. Ben needed to walk away for a minute and it made Bloom feel as though she was rejected once more, but then Ben ran back to Bloom and they had their first kiss... Ever. Although awkward, they were happy to have found each other. Special thanks to the Hogwarts staff.
As time progressed, Ben had lost his Prefect badge as they were an item and Bloom was asked to step down as she had no time for her studies. Her grades were slowly decreasing and her professors found that it would be best for her to become a Prefect another time when her grades would improve. In addition, Bloom focused a lot of her time on her studies that she had not seen Ben for quite awhile. Wondering what he is up to as they are still a thing, she thinks about him and wonders if he just needed some space. Who knows...?
Bloom entered her second year with stress. Her family, whom are socioeconomically poor had added another bundle of joy into their family, a little boy named Zev. They adopted him without any reason to her and her two sisters, Bella and Claire. While any family would be happy to have a new addition to their family, Bloom was secretly angry. She already did not get the attention from her parents that now she is even more invisible with the sighting of a baby around the house. Luckily, she only had a month to handle the situation before making her way back to Hogwarts for her second year.
Upon entering, Bloom went to the Great Hall where she caught up with her former crush and best friend, Reid Kovacs. It was an instant that Bloom realized that she did not like him the same way anymore. In a way she was sad, but realistically, she was more than pleased as now she could have a best friend to talk to with ease. During conversation, she learned how excited he was to join the Quidditch team. It all of a sudden made Bloom wonder about what she wanted to do with her year. Did she want to join Quidditch? No. Did she want to excel at something in a class? Not quite. It then dawned on Bloom... What did she want to do when she got older? If she did not have the passion now, would she have the passion later?
Putting such thoughts on the back-burner, Bloom decided to go for a walk late at night. She figured the best place to not get caught was in the library-- for what professor would want to catch their students being studious? Bloom, believing that she was more or less alone saw a familiar figure in the shadows. It was none other than Ben Eckenrode, her ex-boyfriend. Technically, they were still together, but the fact that he disappeared on her for months at a time with no reason made their relationship automatically split. When Bloom saw Ben, she couldn't help but to feel mixed emotions: anger, disappointment, sadness, and love. In a way, her confrontation with him made everything feel right back in place, until he mentioned that he was the dangerous student who wore the mask. Bloom, shocked, did not know what to do. On one hand, she could stay with him and ignore his dangerous way while also being in danger, or on the other hand, she could stay away from him overall and be safe. She chose the latter. Though it may be a decision she will regret.
September came and left and the October air became in season. This year, Hogwarts hosted an Oktoberfest event for all students to participate in. Relating to the infamous holiday, Halloween, students were invited to carve pumpkins as a contest, taste different varieties of butterbeer and even concoct their own butterbeer taste, and join a baking competition inspired by fall foods! Bloom participated in as much as she could and met a few friends along the way: Amanda Campbell and Elijah Huang. Both seemed extremely nice and she hoped to run into them again in the near future.
Her Oktoberfest was unimaginably fun. With the first couple of events that Bloom joined, she was excited to go for the Baking Competition where she would have to be paired up with someone else. Bloom, getting there on time happened to be first. She made her way to one of the stations, waiting for someone to be her partner. With much shock, the next person who walked in was Ben. Bloom's heart stopped. She wondered if he was going to go to a new station or join her. If he joined her, what would she say? The latter was chosen and Ben made his way to Bloom asking to be her partner. The anger inside her wanted to say no, but her regret for not being with him and still being in love with him voiced a yes. Throughout their baking, Bloom realized how much she wanted to be with him, though, she did not have the guts to tell him. She assumed that maybe if she gave non-verbal hints, he would catch on. It was unlikely so. It became an uncomfortable two hours being at his side without being able to speak her mind.
That same day, later in the evening, Bloom decided to ease her mind with a sense of adventure. She was thinking of inviting Reid, but she felt as though it was best for her to get some alone time. Bloom felt it was necessary to get some fresh air and made her way to the lake near the school. When she got there, she sat on a large rock and looked across the beautiful and calm lake. Zoned out, she did not know that a Gryffindor was nearby, Eris Fawley. When they made their acquaintence, Bloom truly enjoyed Fawley's company and immediately kicked into adventure asking if she wanted to go swim in the lake. Both the girls went in, swimming in the cold water with laughter. Little did both of them know that there were two Prefects, Kaegen Deathmote and Luna Arelius along with another student hiding in the trees, Elena Jones.
When Eris and Bloom got caught, Bloom tried to swim back to shore, but cut her foot in the process. Going underwater, she grabbed what happened to be an ancient-looking hand mirror with a sapphire handle. Amazed at what a find in the shallow end of the lake, they all look to figure out what it could be. Was it magical or was it just a mirror that someone littered into the body of water?
