STUDENTS!! Tomorrow, be prepared for a practical test of your abilities, from regulating speed to braking and sharp turns. And for extra credit, the quickest three people in each class who can properly strip down a broomstick and retie the bristles will get full marks! It's important to keep your equipment in perfect condition in weather like this -- the better it is, the less likely you'll stall in midair. See you all BRIGHT and EARLY, and if you have an questions don't hesitate to ask!!

*feels a parchment rustling in the pocket of his robes -- yet another missive from the Ministry's temperamental Auror program* To think, by this time next week I might be doing something entirely different... it just goes to show how important it is to live every moment to its fullest!!

*tucks his journal under his robes and strides out, grinning at all and sundry, for his daily invigorating run up and down the staircases*


[[Fancy house points? *SHINY GRIN~* Comment here to say how your character will do on the practical! Points will go from five (not so good) to twenty (very awesome). And don't worry, Gai's not going anywhere!]]

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!!!!!

[[Private to Integra]]

Sir, I have a report about the matter that you told me to look into.

[[/private]]


[[Par for the course, here's the post-fight non-specific coda to this. Chronologically, the whole thing took place THURSDAY AFTERNOON. Feel free to notice Gai's distracted, bug him about related or unrelated matters, and stay tuned for signs of the apocalypse log completion, etc.]]

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!!

Attention, Hogwarts, Suzaku just found Himawari's journal in the library!! If you know where Himawari is, tell her the journal's been found!!!!

Has anyone seen Himawari for the last day or so?

Late at night, when everyone's fast asleep.....


[[Private, unhackable]]

YESSSSSS!!!! *gleeful capering* That did it -- everything's worked out now! And best of all, it tells me where I was going wrong before. With this new notation, I'll finish the final draft in no time!!!

Oh... I still have that photograph....

*space where something was stuffed in the journal* )

WHOEVER'S BEEN PLAYING WITH CATNIP SHOULD BE CAREFUL -- TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING CAN BE DECIDEDLY PERILOUS!!!!!

And if anyone needs me after class, I'm going... off. Somewhere. To train.


[[Private, 20% hackable]]

That sunlight... it completely threw me off. Never had a chance to work on the formula, and classes were still in session today, despite all the strangeness that's going around. Can't anything be done for these poor people!? This is Hogwarts -- you can't tell me there's nobody here who can reverse the effects!!!

Things to do today:
     Map the fourth-floor tunnel
     Finish retracing my steps through those last strange days
     Sneak up on Uch ..STAY OUT OF SUNLIGHT
     Turn visible again

*standing in an abandoned classroom on the fourth floor* Now, this is an important secret that isn't to be revealed lightly. *waves wand at the mirror on the far wall* Dissendium!

It'll take at least a day to reverse this effect. Until then, it's like I'm not even here. People keep bumping into me, even though my outer robes are completely visible. How aggravating -- I should ask Rinali for a bell so people know I'm coming!!!! I never thought invisibility would have so many mundane drawbacks. What if my hair is mussed and I haven't noticed? How would I know if I had something on my face? HOW WILL THE WORLD SURVIVE WITHOUT THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF MY EVER-SO-BRILLIANT SMILE????

Enough. I will not fall prey to the DARKNESS WITHIN MY SOUL. In fact, I shall lay claim to this unusual state of being, sally forth with fervent energy and make the most of this UNIQUE EXPERIENCE!!!!

[[/private]]


A peal of maniacal mirth rings out through the gathering dusk. His appearance changed by an experiment gone radically wrong, a creepy figure slouches along the twisted halls, appearing from nowhere to aggravate the vexatious and aid persons in distress. Cloaked in obscurity, hidden from the eyes of men, he issues a mocking challenge from beneath the only features he cannot conceal.... his eyebrows. No evildoer is safe from this WEIRD AVENGER. TUNE IN ONCE AGAIN TO BEAR WITNESS AS THE INVISIBLE GAI STRIKES BACK!!!


[[Overexposure to the sunlight passing through him has made Gai even more ebullient and reactive than usual. Until he works out the right formulas to reverse the process, he will be exploiting his invisible state by hiding in dark corners and springing out at people. Eventually he will realize that this is an excellent chance to spy on Itachi. BEWARE THE INVISIBLE GAI!!! XD]]

*sprints through the halls, brushing past dozens of people who turn and stare in shock*

*dodges past the teachers' lounge, automatically glancing around in case anyone's going to stop him*

*has to yell at the Hufflepuff portrait before it swings open to let him in*


Of all the... confound it... had to be in this tiny, tiny fine print.... CAT PEOPLE!? How could... but that wasn't me; the spell just wasn't big enough to spread across the school like this....


*feels head, shrugs; a fresh robe is drawn out of the wardrobe and draped around thin air*

Thank goodness that worked. I was beginning to think anything I wore would disappear.

HOW ARE MY EYES WORKING WHEN I DON'T HAVE VISIBLE RETINAS????


[[Strike illegible. Because Gai just has to be different, his Transfiguration research with Sakura resulted in his accidentally becoming entirely invisible -- except for the eyebrows. I promise I was about to do something like this anyway. XD And now you all get to wonder.... does he? Does he not? MWAHAHAHAHA.]]
proudgreenauror: (Default)
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.]]

The owls are leaving with Heather's basket this afternoon! So far we have:

      bread non-floating sandwich rolls, charmed for freshness
      a coloring book (since it came off so well last time)
      flowers and cards

If anyone wants to add something, let me know!!!!!

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???

[[/private]]


If there's one thing this school's got right, it's breakfast. And -- ah, here comes the mail! *leaps out of his seat to intercept a small scroll before it lands on his pudding*

*pulls it open -- expression flashes from surprised to appalled to highly disturbed*

*lets the scroll roll up and bolts for the corridor*


[[Dreaded Evanescence caption whut!!]]
proudgreenauror: (Default)
*staggers into the Hufflepuff common room with his arms full of books and parchments*

NEWTS exams are imminent. Their proximity is inescapable now. Professor McGonagall gave us a long speech about them today. *clenches fist* But I'm going to ACE them -- I simply MUST, if I want to be considered for the Auror program.


[[Private; 20% hackable if you really try]]

What's the matter with Tatsuki!? Nobody's personality simply changes like that overnight. And I CANNOT BELIEVE that someone dared to prank Sir Integra. She's as incredible as ever, but younger than ME now, which is ABSURD. And she doesn't remember any of us, which is terribly heartbreaking depressing. All of her classes have been cancelled. She's going to go spare when she finds out. How could such an outrage have taken place!?

[[/private]]


*catches a glimpse of his reflection in one of the windows*

Wait -- what the...!?


[[Due to a Transfiguration accident, Gai is now several inches shorter than usual. But yes, I'm BACK! Mostly, anyhow.]]
proudgreenauror: (Default)
*grumbles* Didn't realize I was running out of crayons... I'd better Transfigure a few more. It's all good practice, anyway. *rubs hands gleefully* At least Dr. Kurosaki's Pepper-Up Potion took care of my hay-fever.... so I can face the day with CLEAR-HEADED ZEAL!!!


Ordinary black robes are far too pedestrian for the BRIGHT PROMISE OF THIS GLORIOUS SEASON.

Sakura, you really should reconsider. Pink DOES go well with green.


[[In honor of springtime, Gai will be casting Orchideous at random points around the school, as well as surreptitiously Transfiguring suits of armor into youthfully cute pastel versions of their former selves. Due to lack of time between activities, he will attend class wearing his usual training outfit (green jumpsuit and orange legwarmers), along with a yellow and black Hufflepuff tie, under a newly Transfigured set of bright pink robes. There's also pink paint in his hair. JARETH, THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT. XDDDD

Edit: Thanks to Kurosaki, now there's smoke pouring out of his ears as well. If anyone wants to rib Gai's fashion sense, this is definitely the time.]]

*pulls open a window in the Hufflepuff common room and leans out into the fresh air*

AHHHH, what a MAGNIFICENT day. Sunny, comfortably cool, with a light breeze and occasional clouds... a perfect day for outdoor training!!! Sakura, Lee, meet me in the south courtyard! Come on, quick as you can -- YOUTH'S GLOWING FERVOR CANNOT BE POSTPONED!!!


[[Private]]

Finally getting somewhere -- good thing McGonagall never asked me what that library pass was for..... gaah, this is harder to understand than one of Jareth's mazes. But this is one of my special goals, and I'LL DEFINITELY GET IT, OR ELSE I'LL... I'll... I'LL JUST TRY HARDER!!!

[[Yes, he's researching Animagi again! Feel free to spot him in the library, hunched and squinting over musty tomes... whenever he's not outside in the GLORIOUS SPRING WEATHER, working with Sakura and Lee.]]
proudgreenauror: (Default)
Will you look at that SNOW! White and fluffy and damp -- it's absolutely perfect! Who has time to participate in an all-out no-holds-barred SNOW WAR in the courtyard after lunch?? Kakashi, I'm talking to YOU!!!


And DOES ANYBODY HAVE NOTES FOR ANCIENT RUNES? I didn't make it to class today because I was doing my Potions homework because I didn't get a chance to do it yesterday because I was researching Animagi in the library and..... um.


[[Feel free to have seen Gai in the library and wonder why he was researching Advanced Self-Transfiguration.]]
