*nostalgic sigh* Not even an hour to spend here, and Hogwarts... I can't risk it until I get rid of... *illegible* rules about using journals *grumble* overseas classified business *scribble* of all the ridiculous convoluted....

*stares at calendar*

And I won't be there.....

NO!! Can it be said that my friends will move to their next year at Hogwarts -- and some on to the glorious anticipation of their future lives -- without acknowledgment from Konoha's proud green beast!? Impossible -- a TRAVESTY!! Let it not be said that Maito Gai allows the bond between himself and his friends to be broken by mere distance!!! My beloved comrades, though personal obligations may rend us asunder, I am with you in spirit wherever you may go!!!

What a summer..... epic at both its best and worst! Heart-wrenching at times, and yet full of the most unexpected sources of joy. Although... sometimes I could swear this new journal is looking at me. O_O

Gaara's situation... something definitely has to be done. Now, of all times, his friends must stand by him. As long as Neji and Lee are no longer at each other's throats, perhaps they could join together in this endeavor. Hmm... Mytho is also sounding odd lately -- I don't know why it's taken me so long to notice. Stupid journal. Whatever they all got up to over at Ahiru's... I wouldn't have expected them to return separately, and so... muted, I suppose. And Rinali has a chicken?? And all these new faces! I missed a lot, apparently.

WELL!! On to happier matters -- tonight I start my first patrol of the grounds! The whole school looks different now that I'm no longer a student. The first years are so tiny! *chuckles* Come to think of it, I never did get that one's name.... she wants to feed the giant squid, eh? No problem!!! Her COMC teacher will be proud of such fearlessness and zeal!

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!!!!

*parchment rustling*

*massive yawn* Hwwwwwaaaaa.....wow. *rubs eyes*

Third day in London!!! My small room's being rented out until I can take up permanent residence, but I got a very tiny place over the Blue Brew for the week. Three days of exams have just about knocked me flat not improved my STUNNING NATURAL PANACHE. The physical exam was particularly brutal. I got turned into a badger at one point, and may have cracked a rib or two later on, but I won through at last!!! And after that movie Naruto and I caught the other night where I wept like a CHILD but I'm NOT SORRY AT ALL and then the riot downstairs during the wee hours where someone crashed into my room and I had to persuade him to go away and then having to rescue a Kneazel from a lamppost when it didn't want to come down and then running all the way to the Ministry for today's test which lasted eight hours with only one brief stop for tea, I'm so tired I tingle all over and am UTTERLY WIDE AWAKE.

*writing is large and a bit bleary* So what are all YOU people doing?????


[[Gai has gone past tired and into that strange, foggy realm where noises are louder, actions are imprecise, eyes sag and sting, but you just.can't.fall.asleep. The potion he had to take for his bruised rib isn't helping matters, and he's living directly over a pub (well, the Cauldron can't be the only one in Diagon Alley, can it?). Feel free to chat, but know that you're not catching him at his best. >D]]

*leans out his window, breathing the scorching summer air and gazing out over the village which he thinks of as his home-away-from-Hogwarts; automatically cataloguing the best rooftop routes to any destination in sight, glancing up at wheeling birds and stroking the owl that has just released a thick letter into his hands*

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!!!! WHAT HAPPENED TO MY ARITHMANCY TEXTBOOK??? It's not here -- it's not ANYWHERE!!!! I know I had it yesterday after class! Maybe it got left in the library? Or the Great Hall? Has anyone seen it??


[[Private]]

...I've definitely been doing too much Transfiguration revision. Now I'm even dreaming about it. What the blazes is cold and green and six feet long, and why were there vampires involved?? But at least I finished Sir Integra's book!!! It was, well, I didn't understand it, but the notes on the side were an EXCITING OPPORTUNITY to get a look at the mechanics of practical spell construction. I took a whole ream of notes. Maybe someday, I'll be able to create spells of my own!!!

Five Es, at least. That's all I need, theoretically -- but the Auror program only takes the best. *paces* Arithmancy is going to be the biggest problem -- and Illusions -- that stuff is hard. But as we keep learning from Counselor Yukari, all work and no recreation contributes to STRESS, and in the unfortunate instances when recreation can't be combined with work, one must find a way to compensate.

[[/private]]

I KNOW!!! LET'S PLAY CHARADES!!!!!

*paces furiously* The more I think about it, the worse it gets. Completely wrong-footed by that... that scurrilous... *blotchy scribbled epithet here* It goes to show that even the SINCEREST OF EFFORTS can be misplaced. And suspicion, however deep, cannot be taken to court. What's the best tack to take with this situation? I have to THINK!!!!!

*now getting unhackable*

And Light... I wish there was something to do, something to say.... but when faced with the darkness and insanity that evil can generate, true-hearted sympathy is the only helpful response. If I can keep one person from feeling that kind of pain, that would justify my entire existence. Someday.....

If this goes on any longer, I'll have to speak with Oruha. It's possible she doesn't realize that Lee still wants to be her friend. She... she couldn't be ignoring him on purpose, could she?? And to accompany his own eternal rival to Tamaki's dance..... dratted NEWTS revisions, if I'd only been there.....

My application is probably arriving at the Ministry this very minute. By tomorrow night I should have more time to look for that artifact. Even Point Me doesn't work for that stupid bit of magical copper. The house-elves don't have it either. I'd ask the ghosts, but they've been oddly... smug about something lately..... *shivers*

TAMAKI SUOH? I'm here with Honey Haninozuka, who says he saw you in the crowd. If you can meet us on the fourth floor, we might be able to pool our information on where we are and what's going on.

*words heavily scored into the parchment* Itachi, stay away from Haruno Sakura or you will never see another sunset.


[[Sporadically private -- he's not used to the system yet]]

We spent the night in a storeroom on the fourth floor. Sleeping bags and other supplies started appearing as soon as we'd settled down -- it was like MAGIC, which seems to exist here as well. So far we've explored... less than a fifth of the castle. Click for Gai's map! ) There's... stuff all over the place... as though hundreds of students simply dropped what they were doing and lost their memories. But there hasn't been any looting -- horrible creatures with huge ears and eyes appear out of nowhere and give thieves electric shocks!! Apparently something in this place knows what items are supposed to belong to which person, and isn't letting anyone claim another's belongings.

And this journal... it's all in my handwriting, but if I did write it, I must have been insane!!

Poor Himawari. And Chizuru... and Tatsuki.... sometimes it feels like I can't turn around in this school without hearing about something going wrong. Tsukasa and Hikaru have been too quiet lately... Rinali has nightmares... someone mentioned that Eiji is transferring out.... I haven't even SEEN my HONORED ETERNAL RIVAL around the castle for AGES... if he was called away on a dangerous mission, how would I know...? And Sakura and Lee are training hard just to get back to their regular levels of activity.... *wipes away a TEAR OF PRIDE AT THEIR INDUSTRY*

Hogwarts is a marvelous place, but nobody seems to realize it. Students want to get out, teachers come and go... and that book... it's so sad.....

*getting unhackable right about now as he gets used to writing under these conditions*

And that Itachi fellow is still lurking about. *shudders* Gad, everything about that guy rubs me the wrong way. His simpering smile, his insinuating manner... and I remember his little brother, practically trembling with a burning inner rage over their family's tragic fate, while Itachi doesn't seem touched by it at all. There's something... off-center about him -- as though he could detonate at any moment. And yet he doesn't do anything. The suspense is INTOLERABLE.

*shudders* Enough of that. I've got a classroom to find!!!

And this place is spooky OMINOUS.

And my ribs hurt. And that dratted artifact keeps twitching randomly.
