Oct. 17th [30 Aug 2002|11:58pm]

Lily, Emma, and Kallista were allowed to leave Hogwarts for the weekend to go to Petunia's wedding. They had taken the train from Hogsmeade to London and then the bus to Lily's house. Petunia had already put a for sale sign out in the yard.

The next day Lily took the girls shopping to get some nice Muggle dresses for the wedding, and made it in time to get to the wedding. It was very traditional, and ended up being quite long. After that they went to the reception where Petunia and Vernon made sure to avoid eye contact with the trio. They also got a few dirty looks from some of Petunia's friends consdering that Lily was Petunia's "strange sister." Lily wondered what all Petunia had told them.

"Well at least I made an appearance...." she said, trying not to care at all the way that her older sister was ignoring her.

Woo. She was finally done with classes today. She thought she would rather have had her birthday during the weekend so she could relax, instead of today when she had a Transfiguration class. But the morning surprise party by the girls had cheered her up about it considerably. And classes weren't too awful. So, she walked outside after classes and straight to her favorite spot by the lake.

Having put a charm to block out the windows, our room was completley black, minus the glowing Happy Birthday Sign we had all made and the confetti that kept falling all about us. Lily should be coming up any minute. From what I was aware of, Lily hadn't a clue as to what we were doing.

"Shh! She'll be up here any minute." I said, trying to hush Adira and Emma down. I quickly shut my mouth as the door to our room rattled, and began to open. . .

OOC: I know Hogsmeade was a looooooooong time ago, but I feel like pretending we're back in time and posting about it anyway. 'Sides, this comm needs to be posted in. So there.

Remus Lupin leaned against a wall, gazing (moodily, of course) at the dusty road beneath him. Next to him, Sirius Black was busy glaring in the direction of the Three Broomsticks, throwing and catching a small rubber ball.

"He's always going off to see her!" Sirius complained. "I actually prefer the days when he was merely a whinney love-sick git who couldn't shut up about the girl. Now, all I get to see is his back before he goes running off to his precious little Lily!"

"Hmm-mmm," Remus . . . well, said, if you consider making uncommital noises as saying something. The calmer boy was concentrating on something much more important than Sirius's self-centered complaints.

There was a figure in the corner of his eye. A figure that had been staring at him for the past ten minutes. A figure who was, as Remus was far too cool to wear his glasses, just slightly out of focus. But Remus knew he was being stared at. It was that feeling of being watched mixed with the fact that two blurred colors in the middle of a blurred face where aimed right for the werewolf.

Sirius started up his ranting again, and Remus looked up. He straighted himself out, and walked towards this figure (leaving a fuming Sirius behind. "Won't you ever ANNOUNCE when you're going to leave like that? Just once?")

The figure looked away, quickly, as Remus started to approch. But Remus could recognize the back of that head.

"Severus!" yelled Remus, running to get within hearing range of the eventual potions master. Once he reached Snape, he asked (sarcastically, of course, though I believe THAT goes without saying) "Please, explain to me why you were looking at me for so long. I'd really enjoy knowing."

(Open to the girls or marauders) [09 Aug 2002|11:13am]

It was time for the first Hogsmeade trip. Nothing had really been planned for what she was going to do, so she met up with the girls at the spot they always meet. They walked with the rest of the group to the entrance to Hogs meade. She spotted some of the Slytherins like lucius and Tia and then looked over and saw James and the gang. At the sight of the slytherins she threw a sideways glance to Kallista and rolled her eyes a little and at the sight of James she smiled. They hadn't planned anything yet for Hogsmeade so she didn't know if he planned to be with his friends the entire time or not. So she went with the girls into the Three Broomsticks and ordered a butterbeer with them.

[ mood | cranky ]

Tia hadn't talked to anyone since the Quidditch game on Saturday. She'd spent Saturday evening up in her room, the curtains drawn round her bed, fuming. On Sunday she had actually studied, thrown herself into it in the common room, and growled at anyone that dared come near her. Now it was Monday evening, and she'd settled down some. Tia figured she should talk to Lucius and her other teammates sometime.

Maybe tomorrow.

Tia sat in a corner of the Slytherin common room, curled up in the leather chair. Her thoughts weren't only on the lost Quidditch match to Gryffindor. Voldemort crossed her mind quite frequently, and Lucius's warnings to her of him. Unconsciously, she rubbed her right forearm through her robes, directly over the Dark Mark.

[ mood | angry ]

Lucius was angry, it was major this time...
"I can't believe those filthy gits won! I swear their driving me crazy!"
He had been practicing for weeks and it was all a waste. He threw his broom on the ground and made his way toward the common room...

Gryffindor wins 230-60 (After getting heads three times in a row when doing a coin toss) [02 Aug 2003|09:18pm]

Lily had just left from the Quidditch game. She was even able to pull Emma over to the Gryffindor side since they had been playing Slytherin. The team had played a great game, a close one, but still a very good one. She would have stayed after the game to meet up with James but it seemed like they were going to be in the lockerroom for a while. So, instead she went up to the dormitories and grabbed a book, walked back outside, and walked along the lake to the grassy knoll she normally sits at when she studies outside. She was enjoying the nice fall weather and hoped it would be just the same next week at Hogsmeade. As she walked she became unaware of anything going on around her because she was engrossed in the book. She needed to read this chapter for some Transfigurations homework.

earlier that night... [27 Jul 2003|01:27am]

"Look up into the heavens," Firenze had said quietly earlier that evening. "For those who can See, there lies the future of all races. We centaurs have monitored the skies since the beginning of our time, and we have seen the tides of change borne out in the heavens long before their sweeping currents are felt upon the earth."

Adira shivered in the still darkness. A swift breeze arose, and rustled and parted the leaves in the canopy of trees directly above her, and Firenze pointed upward. "You see that Mars is bright," he continued quietly. "There will be a great battle among the Light and Dark of the wizarding world. It has already begun, as you know. Many on both sides will die, and only after many years of struggle will one side finally prevail." He allowed Adira to take this in for a moment. "It has taken years to be certain, but the signs have only grown brighter in the past decade."

She swallowed. "Could I ever learn to See by the stars, as centaurs do?"

Firenze shook his head. "Humans so rarely have the objectivity and skill to See accurately. They look only for what confirms their dearest hopes, and denies their greatest fears." Adira frowned. "It takes so many years of practice even among our kind to develop such skill, that most humans have not the patience."

"But I -" she began to blurt out, before he silenced her with a sharp glance. "It does not lie in your path to do what you are thinking, Adira Amaris," the centaur spoke bluntly. "I must advise you to give up your quest. It can only end in failure."

"What do you know?" Adira retorted heatedly, irrationally. "Even you have told me centaurs aren't always right about what they read from the skies! I just -"

"-want to know more than you need to know," Firenze rejoined calmly. "But you are a human, and a child at that. You will better aid your cause by other means, in the future, although they are unclear to you now." With that, the centaur turned away from her and was quickly absorbed in the black cover of night. Shaking from the confrontation, Adira turned and fled from the Forbidden Forest, for what she told herself would be the last time.

in the common room [27 Jul 2003|12:16am]

[ mood | drained ]

"Password?" trilled the Fat Lady, at last ceasing her chatter with another portrait in the dim corridor. It's about time. And how can she be so cheerful this late at night? Adira wondered with a yawn. Then, aloud, "Oh, bloody hell!"

"Afraid not, love," the portrait said.

"No, no!" Adira put her hand to her forehead. "I can't remember the password. Give me a minute...it's not Fortuna Major. That was last week...Magnolia Crescent? Golden galleon? Chocolate frog?" The Fat Lady shook her head at each guess. Adira stamped her foot in exasperation. "I don't know...wizard cracker!"

The portrait swung open. "Wizard cracker?" Adira mused, quickly scrambling through the portrait hole into the Gryffindor common room. Once over the threshold, she stumbled and fell flat on her face. Tears welled up in her eyes as she tasted blood in her mouth - that bitten lip would be swollen tomorrow - but she forced herself to laugh instead. Soon she really did feel like laughing, and did for several moments until her laughter subsided into giggles and then expired in silence. "I really am a dreadful klutz," she spoke ruefully to no one in particular, rising in the darkness to sort herself out.

Adira wouldn't go up to her dormitory just yet. Maybe she would sleep in the common room tonight, if she slept at all. After all, she didn't want to wake the other girls. They would only wonder where she had been - and who with - and Adira didn't feel equal to explaining anything tonight, or any other night, for that matter. It had quickly become a losing struggle, to get her schoolwork done and keep up with her friends and extracurriculars, with these clandestine forays into the Forbidden Forest nearly every night since the start of term. Adira counted herself lucky with each passing night, escaping the others' notice. Looks like I won't be going anymore after tonight, she reminded herself bitterly, still seething over the encounter.

Yet the thought also brought relief. She'd so rarely had these quiet snatches of time to herself anymore. It would be good to resume the normal patterns of living, at least for awhile. Maybe she would try to make peace with Firenze in a few weeks. And so Adira curled up in her favorite armchair by the dark fireplace. Pulling her wand, diary, and a quill from inside her robes, she whispered, "Lumos," into the darkness and settled in for yet another sleepless night of reflection and unsated curiosity...

Making Up. [24 Jul 2003|02:02am]

[ mood | anxious ]

Tia fretted for a bit up in the girls' dormitory. Pretty much everyone in Slytherin House knew about the huge fight outside the Great Hall this morning. She knew she had gotten too carried away. Maybe Lucius was right. Maybe she was in over her head. Tia sat down on her bed and drew the curtains, then rolled up her sleeve to look at her arm.

The Dark Mark shone brightly on her forearm. She had told Lucius the night before about the Mark and about the Imperius Curse she had placed on Jasmine Tierney. Things were getting way out of hand. But she needed to show him she could handle herself. The only problem was...Tia didn't really know if she could.

Finally, Tia broke down and went down to the common room in search of Lucius. She would have settled for even Severus's company at the moment. But neither he, Lucius, or Bellatrix was in sight.

Tia sighed, turned, and trudged back up the stairs. She stopped on the second stair when a thought occured to her. Tia spun around and went up the stairs to the boys' dormitories instead. She knew there was a charm placed on the girls' stairs so that boys could not get up them, but luckily girls were able to go upstairs to the boys' rooms.

Tia halted outside the door to the seventh years' rooms, took a deep breath, and knocked.

(OOC: Yeah, I know Phil Collins hadn't done this song back in '77, but it's fitting for Tia right now.)

[ mood | determined ]

Lucius had practiced long and hard all day, quidditch would start soon and he wanted to be ready. He kept flying, not caring about anything else as he darted up and down the field. He seemed to get very moody when quidditch was involved. He would catch the snitch, let it go, and then catch it again as he had been doing for hours on end. He swerved in and out of stands, zig-zagged through posts, and everything else imaginable. He just seemed to keep going and going and it was well into the night.

[ mood | giddy ]

Tia spent most of the day wandering around in a daze. Last night had turned out rather...surprising. Completely unexpected for her. She hadn't gotten a chance to talk to Bellatrix at all; she had been asleep by the time Tia had gone up to the dormitory. Tia bumped into a couple students in the hall, apologizing. Some nameless second year Slytherin attempted to tease her about tickling Lucius in the common room, then tried to finagle his way onto the Quidditch team by flirting with her. Tia merely laughed.

She didn't really pay much attention to any of her classes, just spent the time doodling and journaling. Tia managed to surprise a couple of Gryffindor seventh years by saying hello and striking up a conversation with them after Potions.

Emma walked into the library, planning on studying with the rest of the girls. She spread her books on the table and smiled as she saw the rest of the gang file in.

[ mood | thoughtful ]

The morning had been somewhat rough for Lucius. He hurried to finish up some homework for Defense Against The Dark Arts and then scrambled out of the common room toward the great hall. He wasn't all that hungry really so he played with his food a bit and then headed out of the door toward his first class. He did the same at lunch for some odd reason scratching his fork through his food. After he noticed he only had five minutes to get to Astronomy Lucius threw down his fork, gathered his books and hurried out of the hall once more. Maybe it was all the pressure building up about quidditch? Maybe he was nervous...NAH! Never nervous. Whatever it was it would stay with him throughout the period.

[ mood | bored ]

Jasmine trudged into the library and set her books down with a thud. It wasn't even Halloween yet and she already had a tremendous amount of homework. At least Quidditch began soon. She stared out the window into the growing twilight to see Tia Quinn flying about the Quidditch pitch on her broom. Annoying, she thought. All that girl ever does is flirt and fly. Her thoughts were interrupted when another student sat down at her table.

(To anyone in Gryffindor) [20 Jul 2003|10:42pm]

Lily crept down the girls' dormitories stairs. Everyone was in bed so she wasn't worried about running into anyone in the common room so late at night. She had been making up all of her homework but since everyone was asleep in the dormitory there wasn't any light to see her work. She took her books and walked quietly over to the couch in front of the fire that was still barely burning. She suddenly turned around and stood up straighter as if being caught in the act of something. She looked over at the person who said her name, not realizing they had been in the common room as well, and said quietly, "Oh, hey" and tried to force a smile.
