SAKURAAAAAAA! Thanks again for that Arithmancy book -- IT'S ALL MAKING SENSE NOW!!!!

Nothing like a busy day to work up a healthy, hearty appreciation for the wonder that is DINNERTIME. Mmmm, the potatoes are excellent this evening. And was that Jaggerjack I saw over at the Slytherin table....

..sparkling??

[[Yes, that crab of Professor Dalma's is still in Gai's sleeve. Speaking of which, feel free to notice that Gai's latest SECRET PROJECT is leaving dirt on his robes and worn patches at his knees. Itachi, WHAR IZ U????]]

Only two more weeks.... *fretting like whoa*

Something's happened to Sir Integra, and she won't say what. Her shoulder is stiff in a certain way -- I've seen that type of movement before. How could she have sustained an injury like that? ..Who would attack a teacher!?

..It's just starting to sink in.

I'm graduating.

I'm going to leave Hogwarts.

This is the END.

*clutches hair*

My studies are going well. I can afford to hold off for a time. It would be a TRAVESTY to spend the last days of this GOLDEN PERIOD OF MY LIFE with my nose stuck in a book, cut off from the marvels with which my alma mater abounds. I am a wizard at Hogwarts! That is cause for CELEBRATION!!! I hereby resolve that I will spend my final days in this NOBLE INSTITUTION in close communion with nature, the castle, and my CHERISHED, PRECIOUS FRIENDS!!!!!

I can't believe it.....

I was there, and I can't believe it....

I need to talk to Professor McGonagall... she'll have to verify this, and there's the registration paperwork... at least Lee recovered much faster this time... and Kimi didn't need to use that deadly talent... who knew Obito knew that much about Dark Creatures? And Sakura's sheer power was... it was just... there ARE no words!! But what the five of us encountered today--

*hesitates, writing is stiff* ..No, the six of us. Whatever else I may think of him, what he did down there cannot be ignored.

Someone will have to deal with this. Who knows how far back those three went? Will anybody miss them? From whence did they come!? But whatever they were, their purpose was inflammatory and their motives corrupt -- and besides, they were the ones who attacked Lee!!!!!

[[Private to Integra]]

Sir, I have a report about the matter that you told me to look into.

[[Par for the course, here's the post-fight non-specific coda to this. Chronologically, the whole thing took place THURSDAY AFTERNOON. Feel free to notice Gai's distracted, bug him about related or unrelated matters, and stay tuned for signs of the apocalypse log completion, etc.]]

PREPARE YOURSELVES, DENIZENS OF HOGWARTS -- KONOHA'S GLORIOUS, PROUD GREEN BEASTS WILL REJOIN YOU THIS VERY EVENING!!!!!

*NICE GUY POSE*

Have you got everything, Lee? We don't want to lose track of Maito-kun at the station. Though he'd probably find us anyway! *shiny grin* First stop, the underground to King's Cross. We'll have the Hogwarts Express practically to ourselves -- just us and whatever school cargo is being shipped tonight. YOSH!! What a MAGNIFICENT COMMENCEMENT of our TRIUMPHANT RETURN!!!!

Thank you all, mediwizards of St. Mungo's! Your noble, ceaseless efforts on behalf of our recovery will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!!!


[[Private, unhackable]]

I'm glad the mediwizards haven't cleared us for Floo travel yet. After being nearly crushed by a wave of sand, the sight of a jar of Floo powder gives me the shivers. I can't imagine what it's like for Lee. But that's a phobia to work on when we have time.

Still haven't heard what's going to happen with Gaara. The poor boy... trapped by the hatred of a parasite he never agreed to host. What do you do, when you wake up having almost killed someone you care for? And Lee, with the knowledge that he can't go near the person who was once his most precious friend.... They need to talk, but it would be madness to risk the creature taking control again. Perhaps... an exchange of messages through the journal system?

I want to talk with Dumbledore. He's a great man, but on complicated matters like this, it's possible for even a genius to miss the boat. By hook or by crook, I will know what's going on.

[[/private]]


[[Totally made that up because I'm in the mood for a nice long train ride. It would be SO GREAT if Kimi, Gaara, and Temari were coming back on the same train.

Remembering that Osaka gave him pet rocks on Valentine's Day, Gai sent her a box of rock candy. He also sent Oruha an origami rose, both for her birthday and as a tribute to her singing.

Since I didn't manage to post yesterday, let's assume Honey's box already made it to London. The convalescents received, among other things: photos of Hogwarts and its people in the winter, photos of Kimimaro's kitten curled up with Rinali's kitten, a plush Chinese dragon for Lee, a potted plant for Kimi, and various stuff from Osaka, Haruko, and others. Feel free to have sent a card of object along.]]

Well, look at that. It's raining. The sky is a beautiful pearly grey. And that's a MASSIVE puddle down there -- goes all the way across the street. I wonder how deep it gets.

Honey's sending Lee some pictures of Hogwarts!! If anyone wants to send anything to Lee or Kimimaro, bring them to Hufflepuff House and he'll send them along!!!

They're saying both Lee and Kimi will be released some time this week!!!! I can't wait to get back to school... but what is being done about Gaara? I haven't heard from Temari. Or anyone at all. What are the professors doing while we're stuck in London? I wonder if Dumbledore even knows the five of us are still here.....

Off to the hospital again. Kimi seemed... upset this morning. They should be done with the tests or whatever it was by now. Maybe I'll get to talk to him.

[[/private]]


[[Doesn't even think of asking for anything himself. Gai's so noble!! And since he considers weather (and deep puddles) a CHALLENGE, he will arrive at the hospital soaked.to.the.bone.

And hey, I updated his info: it now includes relationships. Egad, that took all DAY!!!]]

I'm currently installed in small hotel near St. Mungo's. If the paint is peeling... a lot... and the dust bunnies are lively enough to gnaw my leg-warmers to shreds... and the splits in the insulation are too wide to block off even with The Big, Huge, Massive Compendium of Magical Self-Expansion.... at least it has a marvelous view of... a bunch of chimney-pots, or would if there weren't so much fog!!!! But the best part is I'm on the fifteenth floor, so I get a lot of exercise between visiting Lee and Kimi!!!! Why waste Floo powder when I'm only three doors away?

..I miss my common room. *lip wobbles*

Lee was able to sit up today. He's eager to get back into his regular routine! I've had to promise threaten extra stamina work next week to get him to stay still. His MAGNIFICENT RESILIENCE is TRULY INSPIRING!!!!!


[[Private to Honey, hackable by Lee's friends]]

Honey, your idea of sending Lee a stuffed animal is grand!! What do you think of a giant Chinese dragon, representing his heritage and magical ambitions? And speaking of which, I've ordered Eiji's present. He should be getting it any day now. *shiny grin*

By now you've probably heard about what happened yesterday. I'm all right, but they won't let me come back to school until my spine regenerates. It's not supposed to take over a week.

If Lee's parents can't bother to come over from Japan to see their son, I might be here longer.

To everyone who helped... thank you so much. *defiant scribble* Hopefully we'll be back in a week to thank you in PERSON!!!

Professor Marik, didn't get a chance to tell you -- that field trip was FABULOUS!!! I learned a lot, especially about thestrals! And Demyx, we have to do that again sometime. *big wide grin*

LEE!!! Training in the Great Hall in the morning? *macho workout stance*


[[Private]]

That picture in Lee's textbook....

There's no question now. Gaara's his childhood friend, the one he speaks of with such affection. It's certain that Lee has no idea of the rift between them now. And if Gaara's escaped from the Hospital Wing.... well, I'm glad Kimi was looking after him during my field trip.

This... I don't know if it changes anything. The fact is that Gaara threatened to kill him, and nobody has any idea why. Whatever happened to him in those two years... he was long out of Lee's life by then. Why wouldn't Lee tell me his friend's name? It's as though something in his instincts has already told him what he doesn't want to face. Oh, Lee... don't you know that will only make it worse?

I wonder if Dumbledore knows about this too.

*happy tears* Thank you for the card, Honey!! It’s so GREEN and VIBRANT and SPARKLING!! Hey, Tsukasu (and Hikaru) -- that chocolate hit the spot! And Kimimaro, thanks for the gardenia!

Looking forward to so many things... dancing with Sakura-san, hearing Oruha's beautiful voice, knowing Lee's nearly back to his PROUD, DYNAMIC SELF... finding out who else got my random cards, seeing Sir Integra in a party gown.... This is gonna be an AWESOME masquerade!!!!!

*dashes off to dress up*


[[Strike SO illegible. XDDDD

Gaah, it’s official -- snowed in with nothing but the land-line, so no chat for me today. And just when I’d figured out how to use AIM. *hammers at slow computer* Gai will be around when nobody else is using the computer or the phone.

The rest of the anonymous Just A Reminder That You’re Special! cards will have come in by the time the ball starts. He’ll soft-shoe with Sakura, cheer for Oruha, get his hair dyed red, and eventually start breakdancing before being distracted by TEH DRAMA.]]
proudgreenauror: (Default)
[[Actions visible only to people who are abroad at five-thirty in the morning]]

Gai wakes up early as usual, but for once doesn't sprint down to the Great Hall to work out. He dresses quickly in the dark and slips out of the curtains of his four-poster, shivering a bit at the morning chill. For a moment he stands still, listening for any sign of life from the other seventh-years. Hearing nothing, he reaches into the very back of his desk and brings out a thin packet of flimsy paper containing a length of ribbon which smells faintly of chocolate.

He sits for some minutes looking out the window, absently winding the ribbon around his fingers. Then he picks up a quill and a sheet of paper, its faded color the burnt red of rust or old blood. He writes on it quickly for several minutes.

When he reaches the end of the paper, he folds into an origami heart without stopping to look it over again. The first rays of sunlight steal through the window, and Gai murmurs a levitating charm, guides the folded paper out into the open air, and sets it on fire. It burns quickly and brightly, leaving only a trace of ash which drifts away on the wind.

Satisfied, Gai tucks the ribbon back into his desk, digs out the books for the day's classes, and ambles down to the common room to struggle over Arithmancy until breakfast.



[[Three inches of snow, and RATS my campus is closed, which means I'm stuck on the slow, slow landline today with five people competing for the computer.

Sakura-mun, Itachi-mun, what kind of a reaction were you looking for?

Also, I'm going to draw a picture of Gai at the ball... early on, before the inevitable chaos starts. Who else wants to be in it?]]
