*double-take*


Wait -- casualties at Hogsmeade? Death Eaters!? WHAT'S GOING ON??


[[Gai's gift-list will be coming up soon when I manage to write it. For now, they are delayed in the owl post. And YOSH, I'm back! Will be posting with the rest of my characters within the next few days.]]

IMMENSE THANKS to whomever sent me this emergency yodel button!! It will be a perfect way to send signals to my flying students -- much better than a simple whistle!

Hmmm.... with the grounds this icy, it's difficult to perform my daily run... but I will not be thwarted. If the ground is icy, I will simply have to work on my balance. And for every time -- no, if, by chance, I should happen to fall, I will do an extra lap around the castle!! That's a PROMISE!!!

..I'd better check the roofs on the secret tunnels again, especially the ones the students know about. Ground shifts in weather like this and those shoring spells won't hold them forever.

..AUGH!!! I don't know how I'm ever going to get this stuff out of my hair! It had better be washable, Zidane, or I'm going for a dunk in the lake AND TAKING YOU WITH ME!!!

I hope all of you had as fabulous a Halloween as I did. Flying classes will resume on Monday before breakfast, so everybody be ready. And be sure to wear your House scarves. The Quidditch pitch can be chilly at that time of day!

I, the wizarding world's GLORIOUS PROUD GREEN BEAST, am no longer your Charms TA. That post has been given back to Zidane Tribal, who SHALL BE KNOWN AS DARTH nonono, who just arrived from THE NEW YORK COMICON TO SAY... wait, is my journal acting up again? *sound of the journal being whacked with his wand* ..But never fear; I am not going away!

An assignment over the weekend... I should have expected it after this dry spell. There will barely be enough time to get there from this week's last training session in London. But this is not a good time to leave Lee alone.....

But then... life would not be such a CHALLENGE!!!!

These flowers and colors bring a lively touch of springtime to our admittedly musty, winter-darkened corridors! HOWEVER. It is an undeniable fact that THE PROUD GREEN BEAST OF HOGWARTS IS NOT PINK. At least, not this sort of pale, pastel pink. Or pale pastel blue. Or pale pastel yellow. Or especially pale, pastel aquamarine.

I AM A MAN OF DYNAMIC, EYE-POPPING PRIMARY HUES. Something must be DONE!!!


...

HAH, that worked sort of. No meek, pale colours for my zealous spirit -- the long, dark winter is slipping away and this is the time to charge headlong into a glorious new season of HOPE!!! *PROUD GREEN MULTICOLOURED POSE*


[[Not content with the exploding egg, Gai managed to charm his hair and robes to flash primary colors like a strobe light. Enjoy.]]

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!!

Ah, 2007. I have never had such a full, active year except for those heady days of '97.... Its changes, its challenges, the terror and beauty of the passing of time... Goodbye, 2007, we knew ye well!! And hello to the brand new year which even now rolls onto our calendars! 2008 -- ah, 2008!! What MYSTIC CHORDS OF FORTITUDE AND GRACE are heralded by this brand new calendar page? By the London parades on these cold, damp nights?

I know one thing and one thing only.

As one year ends, another begins. I've lived every second of 2007 to the limit, but NO MORE. This... is the END. And as I put one year behind me, another begins anew!!! Today marks another blazing milestone in magical history, for the Wizarding World's prideful green Auror trainee has NOW TURNED NINETEEN!!!! *PROUD GREEN POSE*


..and we have a stealth training practical today. So I have to spend my birthday in a state of utter invisibility.

AAAAAAAUUUUUUUGGGGGHHHH!!!!!

But if it gets me closer to my goal, IT'S WORTH IT!!!

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....

AND I HAVE NEVER FELT SO ENERGETIC!!!!!

Hah, Jiraya's doing fine after all!! *lets the thumb-sized frog hop out onto his hand* Egad, you haven't half made a mess of your terrarium.... I shall have to do something about that....

How I envy my comrades back at Hogwarts, in the mountains of Scotland where the snow is still pristine!!! HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY, EVERYBODY -- REMEMBER TO THROW SOME SNOWBALLS FOR ME!!!!


Aaaah, I always forget the presents people give this time of year!! But I have two hours in London before the Portkey to Konoha. I shall have to make those hours COUNT!!!

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.

[[unhackable, on a security-charmed paper tucked away in his journal]]

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.

A few hours of patrolling, and then.....

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. Johnson, and is sworn to protect this castle and its occupants from BEYOND. THE. GRAVE. MWAHAHAHAHAHA.

HEY, EVERYBODY!!!!!

Did you know they don't let the Ministry screen a lot of the really great Muggle horror movies because the werewolf and vampire lobbies put the bite on them don't like it!? WHOA, WHO KNEW??? But here's the good part: our Muggle Relations professor is having some of us participate in a scary movie night before Halloween, and I got permission to leave my other journal in the theater so we can watch it from here!!!!

And what a movie it is, too. Terror! Horror!! ROMANCE! And plenty of RIP-ROARING ACTION!! Two hours of your day, and a memory that will HAUNT YOU. *creeeepy letters* For ALL ETERNITY. Come to the Defense classroom if you dare, and experience the horror classic of a lifetime: A ZOMBIE STOLE MY HEART!!!

[[Following the popular idea that journals can be used to transmit moving images as well as words, Gai has managed to arrange for a zombie movie to be screened at Hogwarts. 'A Zombie Stole My Heart' is not a real movie, but one can imagine it contains all the trademark zombie tropes we know and love. Oh, and the journal picture might be a bit grainy, but that's a small price to pay for the EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME, right? XDDD]]

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?????

*a few VERY LARGE scribbles, then something that sounds remarkably like a book being whacked repeatedly with a wand*

Gah, it's doing it again! My journal is JINXED!! JINXED, I SAY!!! Aaaaugh, why me? I thought I got rid of my journal problems when I THREW THE LAST ONE OUT.

Mother's Day.... a time for remembrance as well as celebration, I suppose. It would be nice if I could remember anything at all from those days, when I was too young to understand where she went. Somewhere in the world, there must be mothers who are long-lived and good-hearted. Maybe someday I'll meet one.

I should have known McGonagall would find out about my Transfiguration experiments, especially after that little spell of invisibility. *chagrined* It was nice of her to substitute helping Shuichi with his Animagus form for a real detention. Heigh-ho, tomorrow I'll see if my theories have held up through the latest rewrite.

Right now, though, there's more pressing business to attend to!!
