Well, well, well, what a fine turn-up this is. What a shocking twist has popped up in this series of events! I tell you - you think you got the whole story figured out, think you know exactly how everything's gonna play out, ho-hum... and WHAM! Something shows up to surprise you. That's such a fine microcosm for life itself that I can barely even stand it!

So what is this, Hogwarts? Here I am, sitting in the Gryffindor common room like my presence here isn't quite the oddity! Are you coming crawling back to me? Are you on your knees, crying regrets and pleading for forgiveness? Are you reaching up to caress my face imploringly?

That's nice. That's swell.

Are you gonna unbreak my wand??

[ooc: AU!Graham wound up using a bit of magic along with his fists during the big brawl he got into during the Quidditch World Cup over the summer. As a result, he wasn't kicked off the Quidditch team - he was outright expelled. He never returned to school for his 6th year and has been full-time muscle for the magic mafia Russo crime family.]

[Ever since that event, Celty can't help but thinking about her past lately. While she could say she was lucky that she wasn't affected...she was a little envious.]

How is everyone doing? I hope that you're well and that nothing dangerous has happened to everyone!


There's something I want to ask, it might be some food for thought. If you had a second chance to go back and fix something, would you do it?

[Guess who's absolutely pumped from that game and absolutely going to rub it in everyone's face that called them polite boring. Why yes, yes that would be her. Thus her writing is going to be very scribbled and very hasty, making it a biiiit hard to read.]

YOU BETTER BELIEVE WE WON. Who's "polite boring" now, huh? I'd say we were all pretty vicious out there and deserved each and every single point and move we did, whether you think we did or not. I congratulate the rest of my team on being absolutely amazing except Vald, you're still a total ass and doing their best out there!

Also, Graham. You better hope I don't find you for that crack you made, you won't be walking for a MONTH after I'm done with you.

[ooc: Looks like Graham was experimenting with using part of a journal page as a day planner with... decidedly mixed results. No filters, so everyone can see his opinion of the upcoming match.]

Morality. Must the ends of something justify the means? Is it morally acceptable to kill one to save many? Is killing wrong regardless of the outcome?

The line between right and wrong can be muddied rather easily.

All this talk about book privileges is boring, let's talk about something interesting.

[Handwriting is pretty shaky and ugly this time around.]

Do you think cats know they're cats? I wonder if animals are aware of what they are. Like us being aware we're humans. I'm pretty sure Pillow thinks she's human. What with her hogging the bed and laying her head on my pillow.

[At first when she wakes up, everything is normal. Perfectly normal. And then all of a sudden there is a very loud, very high pitched eleven year old boy's voice coming through the journals. If you're in Gryffindor tower, you'll probably see a very freaked out, panicking Jake English, and then.]



This is a dream isn't it? She's dreaming. She's having a nightmare. This is not happening. HOW THE FUCK IS SHE THIS THING?!


It's a long time before any ink appears, as she attempts to wake herself up by pinching really hard. Multiple times. And yet she's still. This thing.

Finally she finds the journal because it's the only other option she can think of. The handwriting is shaky and weird, as if she isn't used to the hands she has now. Which... she isn't.]

What the fuck is going on?!

Someone fix this! Fix it right now!

There’s something really, really wrong with me.

I was wondering how everyone else thinks since you guys only seem to get what I'm talking about half the time or less, and suddenly everything's... I don't know, way different than how it's been as long as I can remember. My thoughts aren’t racing. I still have all my emotions, but they're not as intense. They've always been either way up or way down, usually going back and forth faster than a kid who ate too much sugar before hopping on a tire swing.

Am I sick? It’s got me kinda worried. Ladd would know what’s wrong; he’d be able to give me some good advice.

Let me tell you a sad, sad story. It's a story filled with tragedy and the slings and arrows of cruel, cruel fate, so get some tissues ready. You'll be bawlin' your eyes out!

You see, once upon a time - a time that is now - there was a boy. Is-was?! Tenses. What am I supposed to do with tenses in a framing device like this?! I'm talking about now, but convention dictates past tense for tales of tragedy and woe like this, ones on par with the sad stories of the Ancient Greeks, where people accidentally married their mothers and the like. Which frankly I never understood. Now, I like older women - I like them a lot! - but there comes a point where you just gotta look at the situation and think, "This broad could conceivably have given birth to me." I'm just sayin' it should give you some pause so you can evaluate your life choices.

Now what was I - RIGHT, the tale of anger and frustration!!

Anyway, this boy kept seeing people moaning about getting on a certain sports team - let's call it Shmidditch for anonymity's sake. And this boy - ah - he loved Shmidditch. And he was good at it. Great, even. And while he'd normally be a shoo-in for getting on the team, a pack of cold-hearted wizards who spend all of what little time they've got on this great earth sitting around in dusty rooms and always, always, always sneering down on anything and everything that doesn't fit just so into the neat little boxes of conduct that they approve of conspired against him to prevent him from even trying out!

So the boy was sad. No, the boy was angry. No, the boy was... - the boy is a lot of things all of the time.

But what you should take away from this little fable is that the boy hates it when people don't appreciate what they have, especially when they rub their false, pretend tragedies in everyone's face. And the boy has very particular ways of dealing with the things he hates.

Blah blah blah yeah everyone's already covered everything about this Snow guy. He's a sack of shit, etc.

I'm still pissed off that I got put on the fucking Quidditch team. I mean seriously, what the hell? I don't have time to play Quidditch. It's so stupid!

And it's not going to calm me down or whatever like they said it will. The idea is just pissing me off even more.

What's it take to get kicked off the team?

Where do I even begin?

What words could I possibly use? Are there even enough words, STRONG enough words, to cover what is percolating in my brain right now?!

I'm taking, of course, about my uncharacteristic silence in regards to the Quidditch results. I'm sure some of you have been watching the journals. Waiting. Seeing each. and. every. excruciating second tick by, wondering when I'd finally say something. Heightening tension! Making easy but accurate bomb metaphors!!

Well strap yourself in because that time is now.

I know what went wrong with that damn match. I didn't throw myself into the match as much as I could have - SHOULD have! A Quidditch victory is like the birth of a majestic phoenix: only achievable with the flames of destruction ripping the previous body apart in an all-consuming inferno! Yes, yes, yes, that's the problem; my self-destructive tendencies were weakened. And that is why we failed.

And yet what a stunning success it all turned out to be! The egg Shinra and I were charged with hatched gloriously, and when I stared into Ladd Jr.'s mad, beady eyes, it was worth it. To sacrifice one's own dreams is the fate of all parents! Trampling hopes and aspirations into the fertile soil used to cultivate the next generation is the cycle which links us all inexorably, end over end, past blending to future, forever!! It's natural to make that sacrifice! Accepting a harsh fate for familial love!!

Oh and speaking of Ladd Jr., I haven't seen him for about 10 hours now. I don't know if Shinra has him or if he's off on a wonderful adventure, but the phrase "severe psychopathic proclivities" came up when his health was being evaluated. So take that as you will.

You know, I think Quidditch could be ten times better if I were on the team. All the teams. I should be on all the teams. The teams should be made up entirely of me. Wouldn't that be awesome?

[personal profile] heartwrenching
Ladies and gentlemen of Hogwarts, I have been doing a great deal of thinking! Oh, this in itself is nothing new, nothing new at all! To make myself excruciatingly clear, I must say that I can't remember the last time my head didn't have at least five thoughts inside biting and clawing and scratching and screaming, screaming, screaming for attention at once!

Of course, that's normal, as everyone knows. But this week, ah, this week! An abnormality is upon me! Most of this week, my thoughts have been dominated by only one subject and, frankly, it's troubling! What an existential crisis! What atrophy, what unknowable terrors lurk beneath the still surface of a placid mind!!

But let me explain what has me in such a sad state: last Sunday's Parents' Day. Or Guardian Day. Or Surprise Ghost Day, let's be inclusive!

Specifically, I am troubled by the cowardly, rotten family trees from which so many of you bud! WHERE is the honesty, WHERE is the pride, WHERE OH WHERE OH WHERE is the fortitude to stick with one's personal choices and convictions!

My most cherished family member can never come for Parents' Day because he will not back down from the choices he has made, yet liars and hypocrites and the spineless are patted on the heads as victims of convenient curses and orders from higher-ups!!

Such transparency!!

Man, I wish I could join the Quidditch team. It looks like so much fun! But there's already a full team I guess. Guess I'll just have to wait until next year.

I'm going to be spending a bit of time at home with my guardians after Easter's over anyway, so I won't be coming back on the train. Just thought people should know.

What a beautifully happy story you have written for me! What a win! I could kiss all of you right now!! Each and every one of you!

Oh but look at me, look at my tactless arrogance! See how I discount the tragedy, the heart-stopping despair our actions have dumped upon fair Hufflepuff House!! Is this what it means to live in a corrupt universe, a dog-eat-dog landscape where happiness for one inevitably begets tragedy? Happiness, sadness, victory, misery, all swirling together in a wonderful, beautiful, confused mess.

Hufflepuff, rest assured that I am a conscientious predator, and I acknowledge and revere the loss you had to suffer to sustain us.

Oh yes oh yes, even when the world is reduced to a charred husk and the society of man lies in crumbled oblivion, I maintain that the rumor mill will somehow STILL be chugging along splendidly! Perhaps gossip is its own sentient species and we thrive together in symbiosis! Which came first: the human being or the gossip?!

Let's take this current situation for example. I'm sure the Ministry and our esteemed faculty would like to keep this mystery fairly quiet until it is fully solved, yet already I know that some people have been busy little bees, humming away like mad! People far, far outside the ministry know.

How am I so sure? Why, from the owl I just received from a family member congratulating me for performing an Unforgivable. Now, what were the exact words?? AH, YES - "finally coming to [my] senses, better late than never"!!

If they couldn't get me to cast those spells during the war, why would I now?

So let me just start this off by saying I hate February.

Snow. Fun. Yay?

In other news, I joined the Quidditch team. I bet I'm definitely not like other girls now.

I'm the new Chaser. I need a new broom, though! My old current isn't gonna be fast enough, so I'll probably sell my old guitar to pay for it. As sad as it makes me to sell such a big piece of history... Anyway, do any of you guys have advice as far as models? I've got some gold saved up, so with the funds from my guitar, I should be able to afford a fairly decent one.

Also, don't think I'm going to be neglecting the band. Stephen and I are still trying to work out a few creative differences, but I think a merging is gonna happen. Maybe. It depends.

On this date... thing

Speaking of Stephen, I need to talk to you about something.
