*parchment is stained, scuffed, and marred with what seem to be talon scratches; the brown impression of some dry desert fern has somehow baked itself between the pages*

A roaring fire, a hearty meal of trail provisions, boon companions at my side and the stars spread like jewels from horizon to horizon... what more fitting end to a long and arduous day?

I'll take the first watch, Lee -- you and the others get some rest. We have an EVEN LONGER DAY TOMORROW!!! *ever-so-shiny grin*

At least those vultures aren't around at night.....

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.


[[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.]]

Well, look at that. It's raining. The sky is a beautiful pearly grey. And that's a MASSIVE puddle down there -- goes all the way across the street. I wonder how deep it gets.

[[Filtered from Lee and Kimi]]

Honey's sending Lee some pictures of Hogwarts!! If anyone wants to send anything to Lee or Kimimaro, bring them to Hufflepuff House and he'll send them along!!!



They're saying both Lee and Kimi will be released some time this week!!!! I can't wait to get back to school... but what is being done about Gaara? I haven't heard from Temari. Or anyone at all. What are the professors doing while we're stuck in London? I wonder if Dumbledore even knows the five of us are still here.....

Off to the hospital again. Kimi seemed... upset this morning. They should be done with the tests or whatever it was by now. Maybe I'll get to talk to him.


[[Doesn't even think of asking for anything himself. Gai's so noble!! And since he considers weather (and deep puddles) a CHALLENGE, he will arrive at the hospital

And hey, I updated his info: it now includes relationships. Egad, that took all DAY!!!]]

I'm currently installed in small hotel near St. Mungo's. If the paint is peeling... a lot... and the dust bunnies are lively enough to gnaw my leg-warmers to shreds... and the splits in the insulation are too wide to block off even with The Big, Huge, Massive Compendium of Magical Self-Expansion.... at least it has a marvelous view of... a bunch of chimney-pots, or would if there weren't so much fog!!!! But the best part is I'm on the fifteenth floor, so I get a lot of exercise between visiting Lee and Kimi!!!! Why waste Floo powder when I'm only three doors away?

..I miss my common room. *lip wobbles*

Lee was able to sit up today. He's eager to get back into his regular routine! I've had to promise threaten extra stamina work next week to get him to stay still. His MAGNIFICENT RESILIENCE is TRULY INSPIRING!!!!!

[[Private to Honey, hackable by Lee's friends]]

Honey, your idea of sending Lee a stuffed animal is grand!! What do you think of a giant Chinese dragon, representing his heritage and magical ambitions? And speaking of which, I've ordered Eiji's present. He should be getting it any day now. *shiny grin*


[[Private to Temari]]

Temari, how is Gaara holding up?


[[Honey and Gai got Eiji one of these for his birthday. Ph3ar teh sparkly cuteness of the seventh-year Hufflepuff. Gai also ordered a tortoise for Honey's birthday, to go along with Usa-chan.]]

Hospital food stinks. Literally. Chinese checkers, anyone??

[[Filtered to Professor Constantine]]

Professor, I've got a few questions about the nature of the Dark Arts. Do you have any time to go over some of the textbook material with me?


[[In Boston with iffy web access right now. For the rest of the day, Gai will be visiting Lee, Kimi, and perhaps Temari and Gaara. He'll also be a bit more distracted and clueless than usual because of all the stuff he's dealing with.]]

Honey, I want to see pictures. It's not fair, being stuck here. ^_^

Counselor Yukari, can you please not kill my friend Tatsuki?

They're going to let me see Lee today! Does anyone have a message for him?

Blasted cast. Stupid brace. At least I can walk now.

[[Filtered to Temari]]

Temari, I wanted to ask you about something I saw during the fight. When Gaara was... enraged... he was talking about himself in the third person -- it seemed as though he was someone else entirely. Do you know of anything that could explain that?

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!

Only missed two classes so far. I wonder how Lee's meeting with the Headmaster went.....

Just another mission. Got to keep thinking that. Lee....

Sir Integra, Professor Constantine -- does the school have any resources on how to combat uncontrolled wandless magic?

*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?


[[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.

YOSH!!! Now that the masquerade is out of the way, I'd like to announce a special weekly martial arts workshop for first to fifth years! If you're interested, fill out the form!

Application )

[[Forgot if there was still anyone I had to run this by, so can we say Dumbledore okayed it? XD Applications are screened; so far only Gai, Honey, Sakura, and Kimimaro can see them.

Gai will spend most of Sunday morning forty feet above the Quidditch pitch, doing chin-ups on a broomstick as a consequence of a self-imposed rule made during the masquerade. Feel free to gape.]]
proudgreenauror: (Default)
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.

Dr. Kurosaki... anyone in here?
