My dear friends and comrades, vibrant associates and former classmates... this charade has gone on long enough. No secret can be kept for long in such a fervent, close-knit community as ours. Whatever you may have seen or heard in the past few days, it is time... for me to tell you.... THE TRUTH. )

Last but not least, to everybody who has run into whoever it was shooting off spells in the hall, I would just like to say: Finite Incantatem!! *SHINY GRIN*

AHAHAHA, I finally have time to look at my journal! 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!! HEY, EVERYBODY!!! *SHINY GRIN* What have you all been up to lately?

A brief stop in my quarters, and then there will be just time to touch bases with everyone befo--

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....

It is strange to be back in London!! The fog is cold and wet, but all the snow has turned to slush under the wheels of the city traffic. 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!!!

BWAHAHAHA!!! I DID IT! I FINISHED MY HISTORY OF DEFENSE EXAM!!!!


*darts around the square in a fit of excess energy, catching each page before it touches the ground; wipes away a few TEARS OF JOY, clasping the papers to his heart* Ah, Professor Constantine and Sir Integra would be proud of me today!! And the next section is Stealth and Tracking. With my training, it should go by like a mild summer breeze!!!!

*strides down the sidewalk, oblivious to the stinging rain, grinning at all and sundry, and pulls out his journal, which has naturally caught every word preceding*


Hahaha, now to get back to the school a whole day early!!! I can't wait to see Lee's face... and Hirako says it's snowing up north... I wonder if the Drama Club decided what they're going to do next... or whether Fakir found his stalker yet.... and winter break is coming right up....

I'm back to my old self!!! The prank wore off this morning... at long last. I thought Madame Pince was going to kill me. It's not my fault that pile of books was such a convenient staircase when I was twelve inches tall!! And -- s-sorry, Professor Dwayne! I didn't know that was you!

Anyway, Professor Marchbanks is better now, so it's back to London at the crack of dawn. Lee, if you see another bottomless pit, STAY OUT OF IT!!!! Not that it's likely on school grounds, but you can't be too careful! I'll see if I can find out what's going on.

Jaggerjack, there's still a ban on student sparring, so I suggest we take advantage of the next Hogsmeade weekend or wait till the holidays when we're not on school grounds.

Another few laps around the lake ought to suffice for breaking my last rule. I'll do it this evening. Anyway, that... gives me a chance to be outside. I don't know... should I even.... But it doesn't make sense; he's never this touchy! Or at least... he never let on....

I thought... our friendship was stronger than that.



As for Lee... it's going to be hard to let him out of my sight. If not for his magic, he could've been... *clutches hair* Who put that hole there in the first place?? Madame Vance could analyze it, but that wouldn't tell me who was responsible... or whether it was meant for him or someone else.

If Sir Integra were still here, this might not be happening.

There's only one thing I can do.

Where are you these days, Kakashi?? Keeping yourself busy in preparation for the THRILLING NEW YEAR? Because if you're NOT, I have a challenge with your name on it..... *rubs hands gleefully*


[[Private, first paragraph semi-hackable]]

A d-d-d-Death Eater in Diagon Alley!??? It's a -- a travesty, a cataclysm -- oh, they're getting bold, to roam free in such a populous location! And with the new term coming up, and all the precious children of the wizarding world streaming unawares into such peril.....

*FISTS CLENCH* It's only a rumor, but I cannot let this ride. Sir Integra wouldn't sit back and do nothing. As long as I'm here, I shall turn my INVESTIGATIVE SKILLS to the task of identifying threats to the denizens of Diagon Alley! It will be my summer's last and most important operation! Nobody endangers MY compatriots while--

*slumps by a statue of Bældæg the Bilious and rubs his stinging ribcage; two blue 'bullet' marks stain the left leg of his camouflage fatigues, and there's one on his right side -- still blue, which meant that it must have thought it bounced off a rib -- and a flaring streak across his back*

*grits his teeth: if these had been large-calibre bullets, his bones would have been destroyed; as it is, the scenario seems to be designed with small-caliber weapons, and the mock bandages he had created out of strips of his torn robes should be sufficient to stop the 'bleeding' and allow him to keep moving, if not to fight at full strength*

*because in this kind of game, this test of survival, the ability to keep moving -- to stay on your feet, to fight to the last -- was what mattered the most: to cling even through pain to the mission, the objective, and the inner strength to attain it*

*hearing no sound of pursuit, Gai pulls out his journal and scribbles a brief, shaky note -- one that he'd meant to write two days ago, before the Battle Royale had come out of nowhere and taken all his free time*

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!!!!!

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!!!!!


[[Strike illegible. Per the clarified rules, Gai's Transfiguration research is secret from everybody except McGonagall, who knew from the start; and he still has a ways to go before achieving his Animagus form.

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!!!!!

*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.....

Neji, that black eye is SPECTACULAR.

I'm going to train outside from now on -- it would be ridiculous to waste all this GORGEOUS SPRING AIR. Heather, it's good to see you back in the school!!! And has anyone seen Sakura Haruno?


[[Private]]

If you're reading this, Neji, cut it out.

[[/private]]


*blank space where a piece of parchment has been stuck between the journal pages*

There... this isn't part of the journal, so it should be safe from prying eyes. Though Neji isn't loose-lipped by any means, Sir Integra said that no one was to know about this.

There are too many Dark Wizards around. Whether they follow Voldemort or a dead Muggle fanatic, it's horrible to realize that there are people so twisted that they might plan to attack a school. They won't get away with it, though -- not while I'm here. This is exactly why I plan to become an Auror: for the ability to protect the innocent and stop these villains from hurting anyone else. But if Hogwarts becomes a battleground, there are bound to be injuries unless the students have a chance to escape.

Wait -- the secret Hogsmeade passages!!! There are... what, seven? And Filch probably knows about four... but it doesn't matter who finds out if they can be used to evacuate the students in case of danger. Of course, one's under the Whomping Willow... I wonder if Immobulous would stop the branches? And the one behind the fourth-floor mirror is treacherously damp. I'll have to look in again and see whether it can be shored up with magic.



[[Testing the byakugan, whut!! Italics unreadable. Don't worry, these developments won't affect the population at large. And Gai's looking for Sakura to work on Transfiguration, but doesn't yet know that she's been fighting with Itachi.]]

Sir Integra's new schedule is replacing two-thirds of my regular training regimen, and with Lee running alone in the mornings, I hardly see him anymore. Got to schedule some one-on-one practice with him before exams are upon us. And McGonagall would choose this week to hit us with extra Transfiguration work. The new textbook helps -- though I should have waited until the next Hogsmeade weekend. All of this worry and chaos is uncomfortably reminiscent of days when rule-breaking was a matter of survival. I shouldn't be resorting to that mentality here in CIVILIZATION!!!!

I wonder, though... that tunnel's got a dangerous reputation these days... so why were there fresh footprints before I went in???

Why doesn't the library have an extra copy of Cultures of Power?? *frets* Does anyone have a copy I can borrow?

I wouldn't have guessed Professor Moonstone to be one of those Dark Magic gangsters. He was quiet and... sad sometimes... but a Dark wizard... it goes to show how little people really know of one another. And who's this Voldemort, and why do peoples' voices drop when they say his name?? Heaven help us if such people have begun to gather again. Time to owl the Ministry about their Auror training program.....


[[Private, hackable to really, really persistent friends]]

I can't find it -- looked all over the Great Hall, but to no avail. I'll have to tell Dumbledore. He'll be FURIOUS... no, he'll probably be disappointed, which is worse.

And WHY do I keep bumping into Uchiha!? It seems like he's in every room I walk into lately, or if he's not there, he arrives eventually -- and often in a worse temper than usual. If a teacher hadn't intervened last time, we might have come to blows.

But I told Sakura would take the HIGH ROAD and not react. And I will. For exactly as long as he does.

*shaking out a mass of sooty pink fabric* Well, that's the end of these robes: they met an honorable demise lighting our way in the labyrinth. Maybe I can use the cloth for something else.... but it's GLORIOUS to be back in my own dorm after half a week of sleeping on the floor. And a good night's sleep along with a judicious application of healing salves CAN INDEED WORK WONDERS!! If I'm not back in training by tomorrow, I'll double my daily run for the rest of the year!!!!

LEE!!! When you're done with today's classes, let us review the lessons gleaned from last week's chaos!

I can't believe I spent the last few days with the memories of a person from some strange parallel dimension. With the cause of the phenomenon still unknown, I've been worried about it happening again, but Sir Integra said to BE PREPARED, so I will!!!!

*empty space where several sheets of parchment have been stuffed into Gai's journal*

So much has happened lately -- but this is a time for ACTION, not contemplation. Some Quaffle practice should clear my head. I hope Shin has the time -- and he said he'd ask Samus as well. Still... even though nothing in the huge heap of loot from the Katamari turned out to be mine, I feel as though something has been misplaced.....

HAH, I have finally succeeded in properly filtering this journal!!

We're getting used to this strange world. When Sir Integra finds out where this castle is, we'll be able to send for help (but I still think we should get messages out right away, now that we've found the owls). Thanks to the spell-books in the Library, we're learning spells like WILDFIRE, but people keep getting lost (even with the new map) or stuck to that giant ball of STUFF that's rolling around. It's even caught that blue-haired villain who threatened Himawari. *growls* Why can't it catch all the missing-nin as well??

There are so many people here... from different places and times. I can't figure it out -- Lee-kun, Sakura, and Uchiha Sasuke are all much older than I remember them, and Gaara of the Sand is somehow Kazekage (at his age!!!!), but Naruto is still his old self! And there's no sign of my other two genin....

Or of Kakashi. Sharingan Kakashi, the genius Hatake, my eternal rival, who would move heaven and earth to be here if he knew his students were in danger. I have to wonder, now, whether he still lives.

So this is what Sir Integra spent all that time reading when she was fifteen. The inside cover says it's one of the first novels ever written. But ugh... the plot is hard to follow.
