The higher you are, the harder you fall. Or so they say.
Always playing second fiddle to her older, perfect sister, Alice was wildly curious in her youth. Disappearing from her home for hours on end, she eagerly enjoyed exploring the deep and dark crevices that the world had to offer. This did not change as she grew.
After a particularly harrowing experience of which she does not talk about, Alice made friends with the “wrong crowd”. A scruffy guy, never seen without a top hat. A redhead girl who called herself the Queen of Hearts. Identical twins that only ever talked in riddles. One trip down the rabbit hole and she was hooked. It didn’t take long for her to lose the ability to distinguish between hallucinations and reality. Suddenly there were time-telling white rabbits and talking cats, tea to make you smaller and cupcakes to make you larger. The once loving and gentle girl turned to a casually cruel woman, only looking forward to her next high.

Margaret try to work on their marriage with Archie’s help. Regina
attempts to reestablish herself within Storybrooke but faces extreme
disgust and prejudice from most of the townspeople. The only one
still willing to welcome her back is Henry, prompting her to
reevaluate her priorities and decide to get her family back, no
matter the cost. Having assisted in Regina’s return to society, Mayor
Gold warns her that Emma has already broken the Curse’s element of
frozen time and that it’s only a matter of time until she restores
everyone’s memories, and then Regina will have hell to pay.
In the Land of Wonder,
Rumpelstiltskin and Hightopp wait to be executed and the Servant’s

her, leading her to unleash the full force of the dagger, thus
overthrowing her mother’s regime in a bloody coup. Ascending to the
throne, Coquelica becomes known as the Red Queen, growing
increasingly corrupted by the dagger’s power. Hightopp finds and
frees Alice, but she reveals that she has lost the key that was her
totem to the Land Without Magic. Alice and Hightopp explain to
Rumpelstiltskin that there are two other portal-jumpers and offer to
help him reach them, but he believes he has been duped by Hightopp
and refuses to listen. Rumpelstiltskin returns to the Land of Ever

Alice is Frank’s twin sister, and the third of the four Longbottom children. Frank is four minutes older than she is, which Alice cannot stand. She’s very close with her sister, Augusta, who is two years older than her, as well as both of her brothers. Alice is the same age as Louis, Hugo, and Lucy Weasley, Lily Potter, and Stella Malfoy. Her best friend, though, without a doubt, is Suki Berry, the daughter of Cho Chang and muggle doctor John Berry. For a long time, Alice allowed a few prejudices to mar her view of Slytherins and even purebloods, despite the fact that she was one. Alice grew up playing in the mud and on the quidditch pitch with the Wotter crowd, and running up an down Diagon Alley with her siblings. Alice looks a lot like her siblings, with extra fair skin and ink black hair, but her face is softer than Augusta’s. Although Augusta has pale green eyes, and Ethan has steel blue, the twins have bright hazel eyes that are exactly the same.
Like her twin brother, Alice was sorted into Gryffindor house upon arriving at Hogwarts. Alice was, naturally, in with the rowdy, tight knit Gryffindor crowd, but was more reserved in regard to breaking the rules, since her father was the head of her house. All throughout school, Alice was obsessed with her grades, and everyone was a little surprised she ended up in Gryffindor rather than Ravenclaw. In third year, she developed a real bad crush on Nicholas Fawley, a Slytherin pureblood in her year. Unfortunately, they didn’t share any of the same friends, and their backgrounds, friends, and families clashed like fire and ice. It wasn’t until seventh year that they were finally paired as potions partners. Before then Alice had been too terrified to even speak to him. After a few weeks of being partners, though, Nick asked her to Hogsmeade and she said yes. Alice’s innermost circle is compromised of her Gryffindor roommates, Amita Davies, Suki Berry, Sabrina Wood, Lily Potter, and Lucy Weasley. In general, it was easier for the girls to stick together, since they were all on the same page in terms of fame and expectations. Many boys at school pined after Alice, but never got more than a single date, except Fawley.
Alice loves to study, and loves being outdoors. She inherited her father’s love for gardening and plants, and could rattle off an endless number of facts about plants, both muggle and magical. Another one of her favorite activities was swimming, particularly in the black lake. Alice always thought it was more fun, though, in the middle of a cold winter’s night, especially since Frank always squealed like a girl. Alice grew up with every member of the brat pack, and knows them all well. There were so many, in fact, that she never felt the need to branch out. This left her feeling anxious in seventh year and beyond. None of Fawley’s friends or family were people she had ever spoken too, and Alice was forced to realize the extent of the bubble she had grown up in.
((I’m so sorry for rushing this haha ;; I think this is the moment where I start spending time on questions so I do not think I can do the 1 question per day than I originally thought. But yeah! Here’s the first M!A! I think I’ll let it last for 10 questions probably. I might extend or reduce the time based on your opinions. I hope you like it ^^ ))
“Recently I found out a dream of mine that I’ve wanted since I was 14 was shot to hell and is never going to happen. I’ve been very depressed lately; that was the only thing that gave me direction in life. Usually I watch Disney movies to give me some optimism but it hasn’t worked lately. I’m worried that maybe I’ve finally ‘grown up'”
