What is a good place for a date?

Nothing so tedious as "dinner and a movie"; something actually fun.

 Okay, so hey. We're almost into summer, we have exams coming up all the weirdness that spring gave us is behind us.

And what with today being my 15th birthday. I'm getting the feeling people wouldn't entirely object to the idea of, I don't know something like a party by the lake, to let of some steam and enjoy a weekend for a change instead of freaking out about exams. It's only one day.

What do we all say?

Also, no gifts. Partying out is all I need.

The end of the term is nigh.

[Alec draws out the pause for a moment, before he continues.]

And whatever other overdramatic bullshit phrase people like to use in lieu of admitting that you're scared that you'll fail.

Perhaps if you spent more time studying and less time talking about it, you wouldn't be so far behind that it requires cramming.

[His voice is an arrogant drawl; he's poking at people because it amuses him to do so, nothing more, nothing less.]

Just a friendly bit of advice. Maybe you can use it when you have to repeat this year again.

I suppose I should be glad that, as tests and finals go, 6th year is kind of a breather year. The OWLs are behind you and the NEWTs are still looming on the horizon but otherwise not an immediate threat. I personally didn't think the OWLs were all that bad, even though my marks were just decent. Nothing to write home about, especially since the family wouldn't know what nocturnal birds have to do with tests anyway. Still, good luck to everyone who's got to square off against the big tests this year, especially if you're still trying to get your head sorted after the school's most recent bout with strangeness.

Ah yeah, about that, the odd mind and body stuff. The only thing I had to deal with was a body that was about 20 years older than it ought've been (and the same height I am now, of course). I remember the whole thing pretty clearly, but I think that's because my mind wasn't changed. So... for those of you who've been told that their brains were mixed up, do you remember anything about those days at all? Is it like you blacked out for a few days, or is it all a little fuzzy, or do you remember all of it clearly?

I ask because I'm sure I'm soon to have a certain conversation, and this'll give me some insight on where that talk will fall on a scale of "awkward" to "stupdendously awkward".

Steadily, I'm falling under the idea that many people use the Doubling Charm to be cheap. Why would you duplicate your cup instead of just buying a second one? It's just going to decay over time. The origin of it is reasonable enough and I understand the practical and strategic uses, but from my studying, it seems most people misuse it. Maybe that's just "muggle" of me.

Also, after going over the duties and the time requirements, I'm thinking of becoming a prefect.

P.S. Welcome back, seems most of you are back in your right mind or body.

This is perhaps the strangest hallucination I have ever experienced. Tactile is not generally a component nor do I tend to believe I've lived two different childhoods. Can't be H.O.U.N.D. and I haven't used. Lucid dreaming, perhaps? Most likely though in that case I have rather lost control. Very odd indeed, but then I do seem to harbor the belief that this book will populate itself with responses and that I'm at a school for learning magic. It hardly does to only call one thing odd when so much is absolutely ridiculous. But I believe it. That shouldn't be possible.

I'll have to consider carefully how to move forward from here. I'm not sure how but it could be Moriarty. Makes as much sense as anything.

 For those of you not in Ravenclaw and kept saying this day would never arrive.

It did, it started over Easter and now I can proudly say that I have almost completely grown in a moustache.

And you know what, I really make this look good.

[To be fair, it still looks a little whimpy, but there's no mistaking it's moustachiness.]

It has come to my attention that several students have been performing experiments or working on personal projects in their dormitories. While I strongly encourage creativity and extracurricular efforts, living quarters are not the best for such efforts. With that in mind, I will be setting up one of the empty classrooms for Ravenclaw students to use as they please, for scholarly pursuits or the practice of more practical magic. There will be cabinets set aside for storage, and each child that signs up will be assigned a secure space in which to store their supplies and the fruits of their labors. Anyone who would like assistance or someone to consult on their projects may approach me privately, and I will provide other supplies as resources allow, on an individual basis.

I should hope it goes without saying that no illegal activities should be taking place in this, shall we call it, open laboratory, but I know my House, and so I'll make it explicit. Any illicit activities performed in this room will be punished immediately.

Sign-ups for space and time can be done through this entry, or in person.

Thank God the egg hunt thing is over with. Don't get me wrong. It looked like everyone who was participating was having a lot of fun... when they managed to stay the right shape, size, and species... but I just couldn't get anywhere near those things. After everything that happened with the snakes last month, I think I might still have some latent egg-related trauma. If someone told me I turn beet red or get the thousand-yard stare when big plates of boiled eggs are served at mealtimes, I probably wouldn't be surprised.

It all worked out for the best in the end, though. Avoiding the hunt gave me lots of time to study and practice Apparition. With any luck, I won't be splinching myself when the Trace gets lifted from me tomorrow. Easter just had to fall on my birthday this year, didn't it?

I need volunteers for tests involving physical stimuli -- primarily oral but tactile engagement is not to be discriminated against. Male and female applicants accepted. Disclosure of previous experience is required. Collected data will not be published.

Reply to apply. Genuine inquiries only.

If I ever think about snakes again, it'll be too soon. I'm officially done with their slithery ways. They can all either grow some legs and be proper lizards or just steer clear of me. All snakes the world over are officially notified. The ball's in your court now, snakes.

I'd also like to apologize to anyone who might've got distracted from what they were doing if they caught sight of all the snogging Sherlock and I were doing in the Great Hall. And the not-as-great halls. And the courtyard. And... you know, just. Take this as a general apology.

[Filtered to Sherlock... Oh god an actual filter??? This is serious.]

Snake eggs have a very interesting feel to them. Once I get some more equipment, I should be able to test different properties of the shell. Does this work like the goats did? Will I be able to get more at cost?

Hey, everyone no doubt had an amazing fortnight off. I know I certainly had some, we'll go with, well, eye-opening in weird ways I guess.

And then we have the new term coming up. I've thought of some new plays and I'm looking forward to taking on Gryffindor and Slytherin, And I'm going to be taking you both more seriously than I did Hufflepuff.

And thanks to the one with the wide forehead an blonde hair. I will actually be in the Duelling competition that's coming up. Which really is an exercise in stupid, but hey, pretty sure I can make an impression, I always do.

[Someone has been spending a lot of his free time on one of the Slytherin common room sofas, keeping to himself and a couple of texts on Arithmancy. If it wasn't obvious by the dark circles under his eyes, he had not been sleeping enough and probably spending far too much time writing papers, testing theories and reading.]

I've taken notice to the startling reality that hardly anyone understands anything about Arithmancy other than it being a class, and those that do have a plethora of misconceptions about the study.

Bridget Wenlock first discovered the magical properties of seven - many might know how seven is generally a rather lucky number. Stir a potion seven times do a little jig and you've got one lucky batch of whatever you're making - that was me being facetious, I hardly advise dancing whilst making potions. That doesn't alter the fact that the number seven is used in potion making and even in other fields of magic aside from Arithmancy and Potions.

Most scoff at the idea of being able to predict the future through science or through magic, but what you get with Arithmancy is an intriguing mix of the two. A practical way of going about it, one might think. )

Did anyone else hear that bit about dress robe stores visiting the school in Dumbledore's Yule Ball speech? I'm almost afraid to ask how much that sort of thing would cost. I suppose if I end up going with friends instead of an actual date it wouldn't be as big a deal, but still.

But here I am getting ahead of myself and talking about something a month away when I haven't even mentioned how great Hufflepuff did at that Quidditch match! Our team really took no prisoners, and they've got a fantastic win to show for it! Better luck next time, Ravenclaws.

[Filter to Greg]

Are you doing alright? You looked thrilled just after the match, but it seems to have faded awfully fast for a captain who successfully carried his team to victory.
