We won, we won!!! I'm so happy Hufflepuff won, we're the bestest and coolest house there is!! I hope the team liked the banners Usagi and I made for them, I put in my heart and soul to make the best banners ever, and they're only going to get better for the next game. I can't wait!!

Now though, I need some advice. I don't know who to vote for Yule King and Yule Queen! My big brother and his girl friend, or Mr Roderich and Big Sis Eliza, because he asked her out to the Yule ball and I guess that finally makes them a couple, or maybe it doesn't, but anyway I can't decide between my blood and my friend. Can anyone give me any help please? Who do you think I should vote for?

I have been pondering the topic of music. I know, I know - what else is new? But I was wondering if I could get some opinions.

How do people feel about the concept of music as a manipulative device?

I am aware that to some, it may not be effective. But others are quite sensitive to the effect of various tones, producing various results as well based on each individual's personal experience. But think about it - as practitioners of magic, we are constantly manipulating others, manipulating fate, and the physical appearance of those around us.

In terms of human emotion, is making music the closest a muggle can get to using magic?

I've taken conducting classes back home, at summer programs, and I have to say that holding the baton in my hand, taking that command over a large group of people to create exactly what I wanted, was not so different from holding a wand and casting a spell. There is a certain invigorating power that it inspires, having that control to realize exactly what is in your mind at the moment.

Is it dangerous? Can music, too, be used negatively? I wouldn't want to, mind! But it was a thought - obviously it doesn't have as direct an effect as a dark spell might, but if one were to manipulate another person, through music, for selfish reasons - is that dangerous? Think of the Minnesänger troubadours, think of the serenades used to woo women from high towers, think of the patriotic music used to stir loyalty in troops in times of war. In Ancient Greece, it was believed that a king was stirred to battle simply by hearing a tune played on a flute in the Phrygian mode.

Can music, or any sound, really, be used to enhance our own magic? Maybe even to help us defend ourselves? I would also appreciate opinions from those of you who normally aren't as interested in music. Even if just to ensure that I am not thinking too idealistically through the eyes of a musician myself. Objective reassurance would be nice, if you can give it sincerely.

What qualities do you find attractive in another person? Romantically or otherwise.

I'm in a bit of a pickle right now. This will be my last year at Hogwarts and I know that while some students may not know what they want to do with their abilities, I do. I know exactly who I am and what I want to be. However, there is a problem...my family expects me to take up a job working for the ministry.

We are not wealthy, nor prestigious, but they hold me up to high expectations--I assume this is because they want me to become well...wealthy and prestigious. I wish to use my magic for other reasons, but I have no idea how I would be able to bring this up to my father. I also don't trust him to not overreact; he has a habit of doing so when something doesn't go exactly as planned.

I suppose what I'm asking for in this journal is advice. It would be much appreciated.

oh crap.
if you see some boxes of bertie bott's beans, can you give them back to me?
and no matter what, don't open them!
you hear me?

[If your character DOES open them, they'll get some confetti and silly string thrown at their faces while a horn blares rather loudly. Shaking them will get you the same result.]

26 October

Good Morning! It is not often I am so alert at such an early hour, however: today, I am seventeen. When I return home I can legally drive my father's automobile! If I am lucky, perhaps I will get one of my own.

For now, I will settle for treats. Please leave any sweets you may have for me on my bed, or if you are not in Slytherin then please feel free to respond to arrange a time for me to collect them elsewhere.

I enjoy chocolate. Preferably bold in flavor and not too sugary. Even better if it has taken the form of a baked good.

I do not trust any of you to make Apfelstrudel so please do not attempt it.

Hey everybody, it's Feliciano Vargas here with an IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT, so all of you better pay attention ok? I even used my special ink for this because it's really great news and I want to share it with everybody so that no one gets into any misunderstandings or fights; that would just be bad!

Ok, are you ready? UNO, DUE, TRE...

Cut for Announcement )

So it's important for everyone to know this so that you won't make advances on my big brother's new girlfriend and I'm sorry to all the cute ladies out there too, but now Lovi's taken!! Don't worry though there are other cute guys and cute girls for everyone else in Hogwarts, so you'll always be able to find someone else, like Ludwig! He's a really cool guy and he knows how to fix things very well, like a few days ago I turned his glasses blue with pink polka dots and he just tapped his wand and TA-DAAA! It was all back to normal! He's also really macho so he'll be able to protect you from danger too, so he's a real big catch!!

Anyway, congratulations to the happy couple!! Remember Lovi you have to tell mamma about your new girlfriend or else she's going to freak out and send you a Howler, and that'd just be plain embarrassing, you know? And don't worry Chia I'm sure you'll find someone eventually, so don't give up ok?
