Winter's labours. [18 Dec 2005|03:02am]
[ mood | smug ]

It seems I'll have something to distract myself with before term starts again.

Would you believe it, I seem to have received a letter from Circe Flamel. Apparently, one of their representatives was present at that ridiculous Vera Wand workshop some months ago, and was most impressed with the way I handled myself in dealing with those wretched tailors. He was also extremely admiring of the portfolio I'd brought, which included (among other things) the dress robes I'd designed for you last year, Millicent, if you remember. He remarked on those in particular.

Suffice it to say, I find myself with a prestigious winter inter apprenticeship with Circe Flamel. In the haute couture design offices, no less. And apparently, Mlle Flamel may be looking in now and then to observe my progress. If I do well enough...

...well, let's just say, unlike some people, I may just have an idea of what to do when I'm done school. Certainly better than moping around and pouting about the unfairness of life, or whatever.

Draco, they'll not keep me during the holidays proper, and I wouldn't be in there on weekends anyroad, so this shouldn't interfere with any plans we may come up with. Theodore, Blaise, your company would also be welcome here, whenever you can arrange it. Let me know, and we can set things up.

Oh, well. [24 Oct 2005|09:02am]
[ mood | cranky ]

It seems the fashion and design workshop will be handled by Vera Wand, not Circe Flamel. Egh, they're such a subpar company.

As always, I will survive.

We Slytherins are a hardy lot. We survive all sorts of things. Hexes, Muggle living, Weasleys, being forced to attend inferior workshops.

Still, UGH.

A lowering of standards. [30 Aug 2005|03:53pm]
[ mood | nauseated ]

How comforting it is to find that an utter pillock who's completely incapable of proper capitalisation, punctuation and spelling and puts sports before schooling is favoured by the idiots to whom intelligence doesn't matter to be Head Boy of this school.

And how interesting it is to see that those who don't even attend the school any more have an equal vote to any of us.

Even for democracy, this sets a new low.

I suppose I had better use up my grasping of the proper use of the English language before it comes out of style.

Or, people at this school could regain a modicum of common sense. That would be vastly preferable.

Democracy. [25 Aug 2005|06:18pm]
[ mood | disgusted ]

What a horridly proletarian way to decide things.

You'd think merit had gone out of style.

Also, am I the only one who finds it odd that someone who was more ready to run off and play Quidditch rather than return to school, as well as someone who can't even make her their own decisions because of their...heritage...is in the running? Hardly a credible statement of priorities, if you ask me.

Amusements and diversions. [16 Aug 2005|02:11pm]
[ mood | pleased ]

It's so pleasant to be able to find entertainment over the hols, isn't it? Especially just before the new term begins. My summer was passing so dully, but in this month alone, there have been all kinds of fortuitous events to lift my spirits. It bodes well for next week, and for the new term, as well.

A question, perhaps two. [09 Aug 2005|11:26am]
[ mood | surprised ]

When did it become August already? Hardly acceptable.

As an idle topic of conversation, how have you all fared in your Apparation exams?

On another note. [22 Jun 2005|01:56pm]
[ mood | apathetic ]

I quite forgot to mention that for all of my yearmates who are going to France, my mother has considerable resources if you are in need of maps, language tutoring, etc. In addition, she still has some quite prominent connections in the country, if you would wish to draw upon them. You have only to ask.

A farewell to class partners. [20 Jun 2005|05:34pm]
[ mood | refreshed ]

Well, finally.

Draco, a delight and a pleasure, as always.
Thomas, you can stop looking at me like that. I'm not going to be hugging you again; there's nothing to worry about.
Patil II...congratulations on your sister's undeath.
Finnigan, I still have some notes of yours from our last study session. Will you be wanting them, or shall I burn them?
Granger...have a nice life.

Draco, our guest bedroom is still empty, if for any reason you'd like to live visit over the summer.

Other visitors, provided they are sane, pleasurable, sophisticated people, are also welcome. I haven't any particular plans.

Unamused. [05 Jun 2005|01:41am]
[ mood | unamused ]

Why are my sources telling me that the dungeons are now a ghastly, candy-scented shade of pink?

"Not on" is, I feel, a disastrously inadequate term for the situation.

Still not talking about it. [02 Jun 2005|03:24pm]
[ mood | annoyed ]

Monday, Potions, Draco.
Tuesday, Transfiguration, Patil II.
Wednesday, Medical Magic, Draco.
Thursday afternoon, Divination, Thomas.
Friday midnight, Astronomy, Finnigan.
Thursday, Charms, Granger.

I'll survive, I hope. And the near-week of rest days will give me time to put double-work into that blasted Charms project.

Other than that, I should conceivably live, other than wondering if Friday midnight means Thursday night/Friday morning or Friday night/Saturday morning. Because it's meant to be the latter, it really should be Friday 23:59 instead, shouldn't it? Then again, there's no helping convention...

Let's all sort of pretend the last week didn't happen, shall we?

Don't wake me. I'm going back to bed until I can convince myself it was a hallucination.

Jewellery! [26 May 2005|11:58pm]
[ mood | bouncy ]

I'm so very glad that the kittens were born when they were! Why, just think, if they'd been born earlier, I would have been wasting away all of that time sleeping instead of helping Millicent care for their needs and learning to knit so that they could have nice warm kitten blankets. Oh, they are such dears, really!

Here are some pictures of the blankets!Collapse )

I found some beads and yarn in the Common Room after coming back from rounds tonight, and I think tonight's project shall be to make them into necklaces and such, and then to transfigure them into real jewellery when I've done so that I won't have to deal with all the mess of working with real gold and silver and gems, which I hear are awfully difficult and anyhow I haven't the tools for it here. I spent all evening between revision and rounds sketching out designs, and I think some of them might turn out to be really lovely! I do hope that people will like them!

If anyone has any special request, viz., colour or material, please do let me know! I wouldn't dare give something that wasn't just as wonderful as whoever I was giving it to would want!

Kittens! [26 May 2005|12:58am]
[ mood | excited ]

Oh, this is so exciting! The little dears are so tiny and adorable, and of course they've not opened their eyes yet, but I already can't help but adore them! I simply can't believe that our humble but homey dormitory was the setting for such a miracle of life! Is it too early to think about naming them?

Oh, and Millicent, I finished cleaning and organising your trunk! I'm so glad you asked me to, since that meant you could deal with the birth without having to worry about your things being in a mess!

Is there anything else I can do for you or anyone else to make things better?

Smiles for everyone! [25 May 2005|04:49am]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

I suppose that for some reason people are acting strange. Although I do hate to put it that way, it gives such a negative connotation sometimes, even when I don't intend it to in the least! It's probably just due to their surprise at finally seeing me at my 100% normal again for the first time in absolutely AGES, so that's certainly understandable!

Oh, but I do wish I could see more people so I could tell them how very happy I am to have them around! For perhaps the above stated reason, I haven't been seeing people as much lately and it's such a shame because you all are really truly quite lovely and charming people, every one of you, and words could not express how much joy you give me, how much joy *everything* gives me! I'm so happy I could fly, I could burst, I feel as if I could do absolutely anything! Except sleep, but who has time for that when there are such wonderful things on this Earth? I blessed being a Prefect every moment of my rounds today--how else would I know our beloved castle so well, and get to see it lying in quiet repose, as it so very rarely is during waking hours? Even if I had the *lack* of energy to be able to fall asleep, I can't see why I'd want to, since I'd be missing all of the lovely people in my life! In fact, since I'm not sleeping, I may as well list them:

over-cheerful ramblingCollapse )

As for--oh, dear, I really did want to go on, but it's nearing sunrise now and I've barely started getting my gift baskets ready for today! What *will* our wonderful professors think? They do so much for us and I'd hate for them to think that I'm an ungrateful student, after all!

I must dash now, but I really do want you all to know just how much I treasure you. Don't ever change! Though I'd still adore you if you did!

Please come visit me, or we can set up plans, or talk over the messenger device! I'd like nothing more than to hear from all of you!

HURRAH! [23 May 2005|09:34pm]
[ mood | so happy! ]

I'm FIXED! Once and for all and finally (I hope!)! Even though Mme Pomfrey couldn't do much for me with anything else (and I'm sure it's not her fault, after all we're in a school and even though it may have done more good to send me somewhere with proper medical facilities she can't be faulted for not having them and after all it does no good to think ill of things we can't change!), she knew exactly what to do to change my...I forget exactly what she called it, but now I can speak in English again! And not backwards either! Oh, this is absolutely fantastic!

I'm so very excited excited! I feel like dancing! Or singing! Perhaps we can have a party? Oh, that would be so nice!

Or, I know everyone is very busy these days so perhaps a party might be a bit too much but if anyone would like to come by and say hello, I can ask the house elves to bring up some cocoa or lemonade or something! Theodore? Draco? Blaise? Millicent? Vincent? Gregory? Anyone? We can have a grand time!
