HAH, my memory is coming back!! Good grief, I even remember those thestrels that interrupted my last duel with... with.... ANYWAY -- Hufflepuff won -- or was it Ravenclaw? And I was -- WELL DONE, HUFFLEPUFF, ALL THAT HARD WORK PAID OFF -- I was running toward the--

*briefly interrupted by the mediwitch*

..Yes. Loss of memory is a common side-effect of concussion; they said that in the first-responder course. How ironic that with all I have been through in life, I receive such an injury on a day when everyone is having fun!

And I can't remember how it ended.....

..gaah. If I can't have those memories back, I will just have to make new ones. Tomorrow's London exam comes first, but after that, if I fail to make a series of splendid new memories by the weekend, I shall scale every tower of the London Bridge without magic!!


..They tell me Uchiha graduated early. *snort* But where did he go? What is he doing? Does anybody know!? Not likely. It must be some nefarious--


*gasp*

That's what happened. Slime, why did it have to be slime!!!

Ahahahaha, that was the most VIBRANT AND FERVENT HOLIDAY OF ALL TIME!!! MY BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS, I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!

I feel like dancing -- SINGING -- SHOUTING OUT MY DYNAMIC ENTHUSIASM FROM THE TOP OF BIG BEN!! The world is spinning at a thousand miles an hour and the sunlit hours of our lives are FLASHING BY, and as we hurtle through the universe on this precious jewel of a planet, I can dimly sense the incredible marvels that lurk just in the future, barely out of reach of our yearning fingers!! It is time to stand up and seize the day -- to capture the wonders that are to come!!! For the celebration of YOUTH is a celebration of LIFE....

Of all people, to take advice from him... but it's true. If my journals always go wrong, they're not secure enough to trust with what's important -- like mysteries and apologies and Lee and Neji's safety. Madame Vance still doesn't know who the pit was intended for. We've all taken dangerous and sensitive assignments. It might have been them. It might have been me. If she finds paper airplanes in there, I shall EXPLODE.

Everyone who still likes zombie movies after that last one egad.... you should know that REAL zombies are VERY DIFFERENT from the ones on the computer screen!!! They're called Inferi, and an Inferius is a very scary thing... a dead person without a mind or a heart, completely controlled by somebody steeped in Dark magic! *sepulchural voice* But if you see an Inferius stalking the noble corridors of Hogwarts today, do not be afraid, for the Proud Green Inferius of Hogwarts answers to nobody except Sgt.

AUGH. Training this week was more grueling than ever. I didn't even have a chance to work on tracing... well, Madame Vance has been looking at it. Maybe she had time.

Is it my imagination, or have some of the Hogwarts staff been acting a little bit... odd? Hexing one another in the courtyards -- they're supposed to be protectors and sources of inspiration for the youth under their care! What is this world coming to!?

Strange... how the world changes as one's youth passes by... Three years ago I would have laughed! But there's a point where laughter becomes cruelty. There was a time when I, too, took offense at the smallest slight to my honor. Sometimes, though.... sometimes the obvious answer makes things worse. I could get mad at him for being mad at me, but isn't it more important to remember that he's my friend?

Does that mean... I'm more mature than Kakashi???? *boggles*

Of all the strange holidays they observe in England, Halloween has got to be the best. Costumes, jokes, even more weirdness than usual, and a chance to face your darkest fears in a secure environment.... what's not to like? BE SAFE WITH YOUR PRANKS, PEOPLE! If it's fun, it should be fun for everyone, not just you. What better way to spread hilarity and joy?

Some of my London comrades are planning to celebrate with a scary movie night!! There's something I never did before! Ah, how I wish my good friends at Hogwarts could share this amazing experience!! Ooh, ooh!! Speaking of experiences, who else is helping with the haunTED HOUSE?????

I can't find it -- looked all over the Great Hall, but to no avail. I'll have to tell Dumbledore. He'll be FURIOUS... no, he'll probably be disappointed, which is worse.

And WHY do I keep bumping into Uchiha!? It seems like he's in every room I walk into lately, or if he's not there, he arrives eventually -- and often in a worse temper than usual. If a teacher hadn't intervened last time, we might have come to blows.

HAH, I have finally succeeded in properly filtering this journal!!

We're getting used to this strange world. When Sir Integra finds out where this castle is, we'll be able to send for help (but I still think we should get messages out right away, now that we've found the owls). Thanks to the spell-books in the Library, we're learning spells like WILDFIRE, but people keep getting lost (even with the new map) or stuck to that giant ball of STUFF that's rolling around. It's even caught that blue-haired villain who threatened Himawari. *growls* Why can't it catch all the missing-nin as well??

There are so many people here... from different places and times. I can't figure it out -- Lee-kun, Sakura, and Uchiha Sasuke are all much older than I remember them, and Gaara of the Sand is somehow Kazekage (at his age!!!!), but Naruto is still his old self! And there's no sign of my other two genin....

Or of Kakashi. Sharingan Kakashi, the genius Hatake, my eternal rival, who would move heaven and earth to be here if he knew his students were in danger. I have to wonder, now, whether he still lives.
