A rainy afternoon slowly fades into grey evening as the cold autumn wind whips tendrils of fog across the grounds. The odd ray of low-slanted sunlight withdraws in defeat, and the dark earth and dusty clouds seem to leech all the color out of the world. As night comes on, rain pounds the slated Hogsmeade rooftops and hammers at the heathers and grasses beyond the little town.

Slowly, creakily, the gates of the castle swing open and a lone figure strides through, his brow furrowed like thunder. The rain has soaked his robes; he can move no faster than his current brisk walk, but strains with every nerve to reach the castle, where -- against all odds perhaps -- he might gain some measure of peace.



[[AM BACK FOR A FEW DAYS. YOSH!!! Gai left his journal at Hogwarts and has no idea what has been going on in his absence. Come on, everyone, confuse him! XDDDD]]

*emerges gasping from behind a huge pile of books and parchment* Tamaki, I hear that your endeavor was a great success!!! Hopefully next time I'll be able to attend as well!

To anyone who knows Heather... she is currently visiting an injured relative at St. Mungo's. We're putting together a package to send her, representing BEST WISHES AND SOLIDARITY IN THIS TROUBLED TIME. If you'd like to include anything, contact me here.

How is he?

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*

Sakura wants candy. It may be time... to make use of that place again. *OMINOUS GRIN*

[[/private]]



[[So many new faces!!!! Welcome, everyone! I'll be around sporadically this coming week because of finals.... hmmm, according to the HPL, Hogwarts exams are the first week of June, so Gai is also going to overwork himself more than usual preparing for NEWTs. Oh, and EXPECT PLOTTAGE this week!!! *OMINOUS... wait I said that already*]]

What....

*clutches head* What was that!?


[[Private, 20% hackable]]

Egad... I'm sore all over but it's amazing we're both alive.... that was the hardest I've had to fight in years, but.... what possessed me -- what possessed all of us!? I remember knowing... something... and I had to stop him before....

..there was a reason, I know it!!!

*flips through journal* Gaara... the Kazekage!??? And that Seras girl -- why was she working for Sir Integra? And Haruko, Honey, Himawari.... that giant rolling thing... camping out on the fourth floor with the corridor warded in case of madness.... I can't believe all this really happened even though I've got the scars to prove it!

[[/private]]


[[Vague, evasive don't-know-what-happened-yet post is a GO!! Due to overexertion and the confusion caused by the end of Canon Days, Gai will be groggy and confused and stick to the Hufflepuff common room for a bit. Feel free to have your character come and watch the ongoing Gai-Itachi fight. Lee-mun, we'll discuss the ending tomorrow, ok?]]

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.]]

*stretches, creaks* Aauuuugh, Arithmancy..... all those little numbers.....

*shoves his book aside, picks up his journal, flips through it and stops short*

Wh-- what!?


[[Filtered to the protect-Lee-from-Gaara people]]

Lee was going out to the greenhouses today, and it looks like Gaara might be following him!! Temari, if you don't know where he is, I'll meet you down there!

Sir Integra, Professor Constantine -- we might need help--!!

*charges out of the common room, students scattering in his wake*



[[And let the chaos begin! Teachers, feel free to notice Gai dashing down to the greenhouses and assist/delay/gape.]]

*can be seen at odd hours all around the castle -- reading, talking to teachers, doing homework, but always, almost coincidentally, in the vicinity of Rock Lee*


[[Private, unhackable, parchment wrinkled from his grip]]

Dumbledore's finally taking an interest -- thank heaven! He's meeting Lee tomorrow. After that... well, this whole business may come to a close sooner than anyone expects.

Between myself, Temari, and Sakura whenever she's not hung-over -- what's with that!?, we've got Lee's schedule pretty well covered, escorting him between classes and making sure there are enough people in the vicinity to discourage an attack. I'm just nervous about History of Magic. One of us will have to miss a class to sit with him during that period. It's not as though Professor Binns could do anything about a disruption in his classroom....

I have to think of this as an assignment. Just another mission, standing guard and protecting someone from harm. How frightening it is that this should happen at a school, where young lives are supposed to be nurtured and protected!! Where was this Gaara for the two years he was missing -- what happened to make him the cold creature he is now? Who would dare to kidnap a child and raise such terrible demons in his heart?

[[/private]]


[[Filtered to Temari]]

Temari, I've got to ask you -- please don't let Lee try to talk to you about your brother. We'll work everything out after Gaara is found, but right now I don't want him thinking about this... this so-called bond they seem to have. Did you know his sleeping pattern went haywire at approximately the same time Gaara came to Hogwarts!? Did yours, by any chance? Did anyone's, other than Lee's?

Tell him... I don't know. Don't tell him your full name, anyway. If he recognized it... if Gaara is really his friend from all those years ago, I don't know if Lee will be able to understand how much he's changed.

At least I don't need my ankle to do chin-ups.

Amazing... this place was full last week, and now everyone's all healed up. Well, almost everyone.

*limps into Hospital Wing*

Dr. Kurosaki... anyone in here?
proudgreenauror: (Default)
*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.]]

*grumble* Somebody needs to install revolving doors and a snack bar in the Hospital Wing, given how many people have landed there in the past week.....

[[Private to Oruha]]

Would you look at that sunset! The colors of the clouds reflecting from the snowy hills, liquid yellow and ruddy gold.... a beautiful end to a baffling day.

So... you wanted to tell me something about Lee's letter?


[[This takes place last night, and explains how Gai missed the whole candy mountain thing. I swear, I go home for the day and everybody decides to post..... XD]]

Any takers?

Oh, and Oruha... I have a letter for you from Lee.....

It feels wonderful to be back in my old common room. The place is even yellower than I remembered! And what a busy day I've had -- talked to most of my teachers and gotten a massive list of assignments to make up. (Relashio, Evanesco, Incarcerous.... what was that fourth spell I had to practice for Sir Integra?) And there's a new sixth-year in my House -- Oruha, a wonderfully gentle free spirit and an excellent singer! She and her friends have apparently taken my Lee-kun under their wing. Such joyful news!

I wonder where Eiji and the others are? Everyone must be out of class by now. The third day of school is so relaxing. I've found all my classrooms, even the ones that MOVED while I was away, and the aches and pains of my assignment are starting to fade, and there are busy, industrious students all over the place.

But....

I MISSED THE KITTENS! *bawls*


[[Gai's collapsed in an armchair in his common room, soaking in the Hufflepuff ambience before going upstairs to unpack. I figure if he's been at Hogwarts for four years he should know most of his House by now, at least by sight, unless they've been away like [livejournal.com profile] black_songbird. Who else is in his House?

If you still want to run into Gai on his first day back, try the previous post!]]
