ABSENT-MINDED. This is primarily due to the fact that Annie spreads herself very thin. She enjoys so many things, though, so it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement of doing them. She keeps a day planner with all of her daily to-do lists in it with her at all times so that she won't forget to do the important things.
KIND. Annie takes God's word to heart and His word teaches her to love her neighbor and be a servant to others.
She won't let you use her as a doormat, but she's willing to volunteer her time and her money to people in need. She has been blessed with a good family, home, and future, and she takes great joy in being able to spread a bit of that happiness to others.
LEADER. Naturally an extrovert, Annie is the sort who always accidentally becomes the leader in group settings.
It works well for her as she's a teacher, as she possesses natural leadership abilities in the classroom. She believes ina harmonious balance between authority and rapport.
PASSIONATE. Whatever Annie does, she does completely with her whole heart. Whether this is a menial task like doing homework for a class or loving Alex, she gives everything her all. She feels her emotions completely and sometimes her passion can manifest as being temperamental or hot-headed. Both of these things are true.
QUIRKY. Annie enjoys laughing and having a good time and if that requires making a fool of herself, she's here for this. She makes funny faces, tells silly jokes, and breaks into song at the most inopportune moments. She's loveable, though, so she hopes her quirks are mostly endearing.
SPIRITUAL. Very little means as much to her as Annie's spiritual journal. She was raised in the Baptist church and plays an active role in the church. She reads her Bible every morning and every night and doesn't hide her religion or her beliefs. Some people might find that off-putting, but her spirituality and her religion are things she's unwilling to compromise.
∇ Anne, who goes almost solely by Annie, is the only child of James and Marie Scott, despite their efforts before and after Annie to conceive more children. It was not in God's plan for them, they said, and instead devote all of their affections and attentions to bringing up Annie in a loving home. While both adults had their own full-time jobs, they never spared their time with their daughter and Annie was raised knowing what it was like to be encouraged and supported in her dreams and endeavors.
∇ Growing up a preacher's daughter was never perfect. From a young age, Annie had to learn discernment, control over her actions, and the ability to foresee the consequences of the things she said and did. Sometimes it felt a bit like suffocation, but Annie primarily sees a beauty in her religion that makes up for whatever other hardships come with being James' daughter. Because of their position, the Scott family also tried very hard to be accessible and an example. As such,
Annie attended the public schools in the area rather than attending Athena Academy. Due to her giftedness, she did often work as a tutor after classes at both the public schools and the academies.
∇ Outside of her classes, some of Annie's favorite pastimes were acting at the local community theater, participating in the town's renaissance festival, and watching historical reenactments. For her, it was only somewhat about the ability to act,
but mostly about feeling, for a moment, like she was an active part of history. For these pastimes, she also took up the hobby of sewing and has since built a sizeable wardrobe of historically accurate garb. She had her basement specially insulated and climate-controlled to store her garb and sewing/crafting station.
∇ Her love for history carried her toward a major in history at the university, though she'd briefly considered attending the seminary. She went on to obtain her dual Master's immediately after in History and Education and now teaches European history at the public high school. This summer marks the end of her second year teaching there.
∇ Annie and Alex met first on Aurelian Academy's campus in passing on one of her trips to the campus for a tutoring session. They really met, however, at the university where they both wound up in the same general education psychology class together. One semester and many coffee dates in which they fake psychoanalyzed each other for fun,
they decided to make it official and start dating. Her father wasn't his biggest fan at first, but the more he saw Annie with Alex and the more they proved that their their relationship was based on a very genuine and durable bond, he came around. The pair got engaged almost six months ago at Christmas.
∇ Having known each other since they were very little, Annie and Calla are the inseparable sort of best friends. Annie is pretty sure that she wouldn't be able to function without her other half and calls herself Aunt Annie around Calla's daughter.
TW FOR MENTIONS OF ATTEMPTED MURDER, DEATH, & RAPE.
