Lost my journal for a bit there--I finally found it under a couch cushion in the Ravenclaw common room. It's a little disturbing how easily one can become attached to an inanimate object.

I see we've acquired a new student--not in Ravenclaw, though thank Merlin. She seems very...interesting. I think I shall treat her as a science experiment--I've got a theory I want to try out.

Who else is staying at Hogwarts over the Easter holidays? It seems as if most people have gone somewhere.

RP in Ravenclaw common room, Saturday night--starts out as self, but open if anyone wants to join in Mar. 20th, 2004 @ 08:56 pm
A barn owl swoops down and drops a newspaper into my lap. I nod my thanks and head to the Ravenclaw common room. There are few things I like better than to sit back and read by a fireplace. And I really am glad I got that subscription to the Prophet. If not for the daily paper, I might be completely disconnected from the outside world. Father's very busy usually, and though Aunt Beth promises every summer she'll write, she never does. Newspapers and magazines are the only mail I get.

Sinking into a seat, I run a hand over the arm of the chair as I unfold the paper. Maybe there'll be an interesting editorial, or more on that new Charms research. I know if I bring an article into class, Professor Flitwick'd give me extra credit...

My gaze settles on the front-page headline.

I blink, and look again.

It's still there.

"Merlin's beard," I murmur, scanning the article. As I read through it once, and then again, a thought comes to mind.

Does this mean we still have to wear those new uniforms?

*jotted down quickly, looking a bit disjointed and sloppy*

Strange thing. You can basically live at a place for six years and think you know everyone there, but then you get surprised.

Met someone--Daphne Greengrass. Slytherin. (Why is everyone I know in Slytherin? I know, I know. Inter-house relationships and all that. Still seems very segregated though. Although most Hufflepuffs are hopeless, & Gryffindors are just plain obnoxious.)

She seems...nice. Why am I surprised to know that? Well. Because v. many Slytherins seem so stuck-up. Hard to get to know. Can't really tell though. After all, she could be just like the rest of them.

Hope she's not, though...

I mean, I need someone to--to what? Talk to? I'm a terrible conversationalist, and

*here the rest of the page is covered in spilled ink; the remaining paragraph is messy and smeared*

Bloody hell. Whose damned CAT knocked over my ink bottle? So many people have them, I can't even tell which is which anymore...

Open RP--outside Hogwarts Feb. 28th, 2004 @ 03:15 pm
I walk across the grounds and fiddle with the edge of my scarf. I hate to admit it, but Jones was finally right about something.

It's sunny.

I remember the sun.

It makes me happy, just anticipating the spring and summer. I've never liked winter, or the cold. When I was little, while everyone else in my family was rejoicing at the first snowfall, I used to crawl under my bedcovers and cry. I don't do that anymore, but every time winter comes around, my heart sinks a little.

Beside the lake (but thankfully out of the Squid's groping range) is a tree, a tall, twisted one with rough bark and broad limbs just perfect for climbing.

I approach it, seat myself on one of the lower branches, and remove a book from my satchel. It's not a textbook, although I do have a few with me. It's one of those silly romance novels...the ones that Mandy's mother writes. Normally I wouldn't be caught dead reading such a thing, but the day is just so nice that studying would spoil it.

Dangling my legs over the edge of the branch, I lean back against the tree trunk and immerse myself in the book.

Why has everyone been so depressed lately? Everywhere you look, there's someone crying. There's nowhere to escape.

I'd go outside, but it's still very cold--too cold for my liking. I hate winter.

There's always the baths, but it's more than likely that Mandy will be in there crying about Increase.

This makes me claustrophobic.

Sometimes I hate this bloody school.

I think everyone's gone mad. Yes, that must be it. And I'm the only sane one. Or is it me that's mad and everyone else is sane?

Squids...Dementors...that GLITTER!...and I think Lockhart is stalking me. He thinks I'm a drug addict.

I'm going to walk around for awhile. Exercise will clear my head I hope.

Now I remember why I was so reluctant to go. It's all fun and games while you're there, and you have so much energy, and then as soon as you leave you absolutely crash.

I must've slept for ten hours and I'm still tired.! And my head aches. If it turns out somebody spiked the punch, I will hurt them.

That horrible Jones girl seems to have met someone. Apparently she likes him. It appears sabotage of their relationship is in order.

Valentine's Day causes more problems than it solves.

I mean, look at everybody.

Increase is moping about and looking as if he'd like to throw himself off the castle roof. Cho is worrying about how the recipient of her Valentine's gift will react. Mandy is still apparently oblivious to the rumors, but Snape certainly isn't, and he seems terribly angry about the whole situation. And Zabini has been going on and and on about his/her/its bloody glitter, of all things.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Well. I wonder what I'll be doing tonight? I'd go up to the Astronomy Tower to look at the stars, but I'm afraid it'd be crowded with couples falling all over each other ("Ooh, the night sky is so romantic!" *inane giggle*).

Hm. The library might be free, especially if Mandy is off somewhere shagging a teacher.

Everyone else seems to be going to that party. Which actually sounds a bit fun when you think about it...

I'm probably definitely not going.

Really. I think.

Well, okay, maybe...

Apologies to all for my absence at least, if anybody noticed I was gone. I've been feeling a bit under the weather lately, and had a rather important Arithmancy paper due yesterday. Now that it's finally done, I can relax for awhile. I hope.

The hallways are all decked out in red and pink hearts. There are banners and glitter everywhere, and bells begin to chime whenever you walk through a doorway. Bells!

Whoever did this, be it teacher, house elf, or most likely Gryffindor student, should be sent to St. Mungo's immediately to have their head examined.

Ugh. I need some tea.
