Beautiful People: Rose

This month's BP is a childhood edition, so I have decided to do Rose, since she has the weirdest childhood (maybe) of all my lovely friends - ah, I mean characters. Friends are people you talk to all the time. Out loud. And confide in. Totally don't do that with my characters. Don't know why you would think that. Heh-heh. Moving on!

What is their first childhood memory? Her first memory is the memory of being carried through a forest, but by someone other than her mom. This has always been confusing to Rose, and she has kind of convinced herself that is was a dream.

What were their best and worst childhood experiences? Oh She's led a very sheltered life, rather spoiled as well. Her worst experiences are probably when she fought with her mother over the oddly strict set of rules that must needs be followed. 

What was their childhood home like? The same as her current one incidentally. It's a large, victorian era house. And by victorian era, I don't mean 'built like one' but 'actually one' that was built way back when. Something like this:
And surrounded by lovely gardens and lawns, which is in turn surrounded by a gloriously creepy forest, which is surrounded by a wall. Then the whole shebang is stuck in the middle of a forest. 

What’s something that scared them as child? The forest around her house, but she's quite over that now.

Who did they look up to most? Um...the only person she knew. Her mom.

Favourite and least favourite childhood foods? Oh, I know this one. Rose always loved, and still loves grilled peanut-butter and banana sandwiches. And she used to hate blueberries, but tolerates them now.

If they had their childhood again, would they change anything? Probably just little things like not accidentally breaking that bowl, and avoiding that argument etc. 

What kind of child were they? Curious? Wild? Quiet? Devious? Curious. Very very curious, which was the main problem between herself and her mother, who liked to keep her secrets close. Also a bit devious. She tended to be a quiet child, but she was, out of necessity, very good at amusing herself. And got bored surprisingly infrequently considering the circumstances. 

What was their relationship to their parents and siblings like? Siblings? ParentS? Ha! The only person she has ever seen in her entire life is her mom (in case you haven't noticed, it's a Rapunzel retelling). Her relationship with her mom was friendly, bespattered with arguments growing more frequent as Rose got older. Her mother was away a lot, and left Rose to her own devices when she was there. They were never close, but friendly. 

What did they want to be when they grew up, and what did they actually become? I'll just go with Veterinarian, since she loves animals and herbs and medicines and whatnot. That is what she would have wanted to be had it occurred to her that there were options other than sorcery.
