This assignment will likely be the hardest yet. Undercover work is so... so... SURREPTITIOUS. Pretending to be somebody who is entirely unlike me.... rrrgh, I'm sick of it already! I can take it -- I can take TWICE that time limit -- but there are reasons to return as fast as possible. And for the sake of those reasons, I will work twice as hard and five times as efficiently, and bring this to a close in a third of the time required. That's a promise from Maito Gai!!

Lee... don't forget all we've worked on. I won't forget you.

*dispatches an ENTHUSIASTIC, CHEERFUL letter to Sophie's new location and looks around his London flat, which is almost bare*

Every beginning must come with an ending. But there isn't any reason to worry! Even if my new training schedule doesn't allow me to get back to England for the beginning of school, I will never forget my amazing comrades at Hogwarts. Students!! Make the most of your remaining vacation -- these are the best days of your lives!


[[And so Gai goes off on his most advanced Auror mission yet. DX Wish him luck!]]

Hey, Professor Wolfwood Nicholas!! I'm going over to tutor young Makenshi for a few days and help her with her summer homework. Is there a form or something I have to use to clear it with her parents guardian?

..And.... *hesitates, frowns, unsure of whether to ask Wolfwood what he knows about Chrona's home situation*

And the summer wears on -- full of blazing LIFE!! There's a London Quidditch team that needs a coach... a club that needs a bouncer -- hm, no, it's bound to fail; that trampoline isn't strong enough for everyone.... a security operation for the Blackheath fireworks.... a delivery run over the weekend, another mission assignment from the Agency, and part-time Auror training, and.... hahaha, it's unbelievable that one man's existence could be so full and rich. I haven't even been back to my flat for a full day since the break began. At least no one else is renting it this time.... How are the rest of you doing? Is this a MAGNIFICENT summer or what? *SHINY GRIN*
proudgreenauror: (32)
Ah, to be in London again!! It brings TEARS to my eyes or maybe it's just the humidity! Tomorrow: summer training in Brighton -- that's the seaside, probably? Why Professor Bones is taking us to the seaside... it boggles the mind, but whatever it is, I'M READY!!!!

Assignments for today... hrm, California, Timbuktu, Tokyo, Hawaii, New Guinea, Holland, Norway... good grief, how many Portkeys am I going to need!? HEY, LEE!! What are you doing today? ^____^d


[[Plotless stopgap post in which, if you like, Gai unexpectedly shows up WHERE YOU ARE. XDDDD My computer's still in the shop, but they're talking end-of-this-week or early-next-week, so... hm. Miss you all!]]

HaHAH!! Out of the field at last, and with the restrictions taken off my journal, so as long as I don't say anything classified..... I'M BACK!!! What an intense, grueling, interminable experience... they said being undercover this mission was going to be stressful, and they were right! But JUSTICE prevailed in the end -- and... *ink drips on the page as he pauses, trying to think of something to say about the mission that isn't classified* ..I really, really need more clean socks....

CONGRATULATIONS, HOGWARTS, on completing your finals!! *SHINY, SHINY GRIN* Another year is almost over, and you've all surpassed your limits and grown amazingly!


NICHOLAS!! I'M BACK!!! >D How did our precious pupils do on the Charms final?

..Too bad there was no time to get THE PROJECT off the ground. I'll have to ask Paul about it later.... he's had time since that probation stopped, whatever it was..... and I never got in touch with Reggie....

Professor Conrad!! Thanks a MILLION for straightening out all those dueling customs -- the knowledge saved my life at least twice this weekend! And THAT, boys and girls, is why you should study history with a vengeance -- if you don't understand the nuances of other cultures, what you don't know is likely to come back and BITE YOU.

Speaking of which, it does my heart good to see such enthusiasm over the sporting events that are coming up. After this cold, sedentary winter, it's time to get your blood pumping and your eyes shining again... and then you can set to your studies with renewed vigor!

..And. LEE. Have you settled in with your revised class schedule yet? Now that we are both representing Gryffindor for Sports Day, we have to make time for training as well! With hard work and zealous dedication, there is NO WAY WE CAN LOSE!!!

HELLO, HOGWARTS!!!~ *PROUD GREEN POSE* This month has been so busy that I have barely been able to snatch time to write -- but I PASSED MY STEALTH AND TRACKING PRACTICALS and now there's only Piffle and Circumspection before the midwinter term is over!!

I should talk to the Counselor. The Ministry has pamphlets about depression, but they are too general to be any use. If it's this bad, I cannot fail him through incomplete understanding. I... as much as I care about him, I cannot do this alone....

This has gone far beyond poor Neji. Ah, my Lee... loss and rejection have ruled his young life. His foster parents, resenting his magical disability. His best friend... disappearing for years, trying to kill him, and then disappearing again after they'd reconciled.... other friends leaving, one by one... perhaps only his youthful spirit sustained him for this long.... confound the Ministry, keeping me back in London after the paperwork was in already.... ..does he think that even I will leave him? These wounds are so deep, so deep....

I can't lose him....

Only another week, then the winter break and we will -- but...

*swears blackly, then covers the words with a heavy strikeout when he realizes what he's said*

That assignment.... I had forgotten.....


[[Due to ministry work and his all too convenient journal malfunctions, Gai has NO CLUE what has been happening since he left Hogwarts on Wednesday. He will be arriving on the castle grounds as you read this, nearly frozen solid from flying all the way to Scotland in the dead of winter, visibly shaken by Lee's recent signs of major depression, and with his hair significantly shorter in front.

No time to search this week. Who knew there would be an assignment right here in London!? And with the old journal acting up... egad, I must have missed a lot. But I will find something before the autumn leaves fall, or else I shall... I shall.... run ALL THE WAY AROUND LONDON FORTY TIMES BEFORE SPRING!!!!

*FISTS CLENCH* It's only a rumor, but I cannot let this ride. Sir Integra wouldn't sit back and do nothing.

HOME AT LAST.....


[[Private]]

..well, home in England....

..the place has grown on me in the four years since I arrived here, a frightened zealous young Muggle-born preternaturally thrown into a world of incredible marvels.

It's humbling to know how many places I can belong in......

The urge to belong.... it transcends time, space, and culture. When we were dancing in Durgapur, Lee and I, and even Gaara, melded seamlessly with the dervish spirit of that small town. I wept at Gaara's story. An experience like that is more than enough to cause the deep wounds that he struggled with during this last year. Whatever the case... he will always be at home around US!!!!

*sitting down by the window, gazes out over Diagon Alley*

..That owl... even a few days a week would suffice, they said... but where?

SAKURA!!! That run you mentioned around the lake? There are probably some amazing lakes up where you are, so BRING IT ON!!!!!


[[Gaara may not have said anything definite; Gai's responding to the emotion. Have been insanely busy the past few days but may be around tomorrow to work out how the mission is going. If it's not over, just say Gai had to go home early and knew he was leaving it in good hands.]]

I have never tasted such curry in my life.....

*proudly trying out his new knowledge of Hindi*

MUJHE YEH JAGAH PASAND HAI!!!!

*sitting on a stump at the edge of town* What a festival. And what a wedding!! The enthusiasm, the music, the love and good wishes of this tightly-knit people! We learned some INCREDIBLE new moves; our dancing even woke the murgiyan -- the chickens; they crowed all night and are probably as bleared and strung-out as we are now. Though this has not prevented me from completing my daily warm-up as usual! This great occasion will surely mark a new strengthening of ..Lee, mera pyara chota bhai, how do you say "FERVENT BOND OF FRIENDSHIP"? I think we can definitely consider this trip a roaring success!!!!

*sits up suddenly, ninja-sense tingling*

And... what's this, FIVE OWLS AT ONCE!? *stares in surprise and a little trepidation at the flock bearing down on him* Of course -- they were delayed while GET OFF MY HEAD YOU BLOODY ANIMAL our travels made us untraceable. But... but these are m-my NEWT scores and....

'Playing chess'? I wasn't planning a chess match with anyone, not with this rent problem to attend to though I wouldn't say no to a couple of games this evening.... who sent this, anyway? *looks around, can't see anyone who might have thrown the airplane* Well, that was an odd incident! Somebody having a laugh, I suppos--!???

*another has come out of nowhere, circling his head; he snatches it out of the air*

OH NO, ANOTHER MYSTERIOUS MISSIVE! )

Wh-WHAT!? Who -- where could this possibly have come from?? *peers frantically about; hands on hips in a belligerent stance* The NERVE of this mysterious stalker!! *PROUD GREEN POSE* If they won't come out here and challenge me to my face, they can throw all the airplanes they want and it won't faze me in the SLIGHTEST!!!!
