So... [01 Mar 2005|10:40pm]

*sits on his bed and takes out a journal*

It's been such a long time since I've had the time to actually sit down and write... For Valentines Day I took Gemma out to Hogsmeade and while I was waiting for the hot chocolate I watched her hop around outside trying to catch snowflakes on her tongue.

*he sets his quill down and leans back, with closed eyes, reliving the moment with a grin on his face*

She was laughing and smiling and when she caught me staring at her through the window she waved brightly and carried on... Merlin, I... I think I'm in love.... I'm not sure, though, since I've never actually...

*shakes head and resumes writing*

After the hot cocoa was done we walked along the busy streets and I bought her a magicked white rose that will not wilt. It floats upright on whatever surface you set it on... I thought it would tell her how I feel better than a normal wilt-able rose... Then we went into the pet store and played with some kittens that had just opened their eyes.

*grins*

All in all, it was a very profitable day... Since then I've been twise with Gemma to go and see her father, Sirius, at 12 Grimmauld Place. He is a very interesting character, and he always gives me good advice with Snape. *chuckles* I like him very much. Gemma is lucky to have him for a father.

*frowns*

Yes... I'd much rather visit him than my own father at the moment. We're still not on speaking terms. Oh, bother, look at the time... I have to go and serve another detention... and observe this "remedial potions" thing that keeps going on between Snape and Harry... Harry has been rather silent recently. Either silent or exploding at everyone. Hormones... I tell ya....

*Lee watches Mei as she sits down next to him. They had already eaten dinner, but there was a very comfy couch next to the wall. He had his arm on the back of the couch, and Mei was leaning against it. She seemed tense to him, as if she was nervous to be around him*

"So, Mei.....Hows school going?"

I am SUCH a loser. Lets ask about SCHOOL. Because, its not like I see her ALOMOST EVERY DAY. Hmph. I wonder what else I can do....

*Akward silence follows, and Lee takes in a deep breath. Mei looks at him, and he looks at her, and they laugh*

In Detention... [18 Jan 2005|04:14pm]

velkan_ivanova
[ mood | busy ]

*Velkan boldly strides down to the dungeons after supper to serve detention with Snape... the potions master ((thinks HP puppet pals! LOL!))*

It's a good thing that I grew up in durmstrang and aren't afraid of grimy dungeons... This could be entertaining... Snape seems like a fun person to tick off, well... only if you don't ask that Neville character. The boy's fun and helpful enough, but once I made the mistake of mentioning Snape and the kid went absolutely pale...

*opens the door to the potions room and finds Snape with Harry. They both look up hurriedly*

"Oh... I'm sorry... vould you like me to come back later?"

"No. Ivanova. you stay... begin polishing the cauldrons."

*Velkan slipped off his bag and grabbed the nearest cauldron. It reeked of ... essence of eel... Velkan's nose wrinkled in disgust ((my cat is running back and forth in a straight line... and I'm just telling you all... cause it's really really random)) but he quickly went back to normal*

I shall not give him any satisfaction. It's a good thing that I used to clean the dishes in Durmstrang in detention... I know how to clean these things very quickly...

*evil smile... picks up the second cauldron*

All for you, Gemma... all my labors are for you!

[ mood | annoyed ]

Why am I saddled with all of this? I've got countless upon countless assignments to grade for Potions, because, unlike some of my coworkers, I actually challenge my students and make them work, and on top of all the Order of the Phoenix work there's that foolish ungrateful Potter stuck with me for an hour longer in my day than he needs to be.

Dumbledore will turn a complete deaf ear to my complaining, I'm sure. He's too busy to be bothered. I'm nearly as high up on the Death Eater Most Wanted List as he is-- and I'm under suspect from the Ministry-- and I have to teach Potter to protect him.

I'm going to need some serious Draught of Peace by the time this night is over. Perhaps it is a lucky thing Potter doesn't practice. The last thing I need is for him to accidentally reverse the charm and have my memories spouting out everywhere for him to see. I take the precaution of hiding the worst, of course, but there has to be something back in my subconscious I can't remember but he'll be able to see. The arrogant fool will probably be impressed with his father in most of them.

It certainly doesn't help that Black's convinced I'm out to kill him or something. Right. Just because he hasn't got any special tasks for the Order. I'd be perfectly willing to let him do it, let me tell you. He should have paid more attention in Charms class.

Then again, the spite is rather sweet.

Kendra and Oliver. Gemma and Velkan. WHY DO I HAVE NO ONE? Of coarse, Angelina and I were going to get together, but she found a differant guy.

So I'm Left.....with only daydreams about a girl, who's eyes enchant me, who's skin is golden, who's hair is soooooo silky.....

Mei. My quiet muse! SHE is a beauty that so many do not see, cause she's always hiding behind her friends. I have no idea WHY she would hide, I mean, REALLY.


*Mei walks by, talking with Gemma and Velkan*

"Wow....."

[ mood | relieved ]

*Gemma limply goes down to breakfast, after convincing herself to not run away quite yet...*

*She sits down heavily at the Ravenclaw table, and inadvertently looks over to the Gryffindors. Velkan is there, and he tentatively meets her gaze and gives her a weak smile. She blinks hollowly and looks down at her plate expectantly*

*Velkan looks pained and puts his head in his hands. Lee pats him on the back, but he dosn't respond*

"Gemma... you must eat something... Velkan just got back from his trip this morning... his father made him late..."

*She looked up at Mei and nodded numbly, but her mind was racing*

He just got back? What? So... maybe he wasn't avoiding me... but still... I'm not sure i can talk to him...

*At that second an owl swooped down along with the other mail owls and gave Gemma a large blue envelope. It wasn't marked or anything, so she opened it. It was from Velkan. She hesitantly began to read it...*

My Dearest Gemma,
You have no idea how aweful I feel after I have realized what I must have made you think, at what I must have done to you. I offer the most sincere appology in the world, and I would have you know that my father and I are no longer speaking to one another, since it was his idea to bring the veela in the first place. He apparently recieved some advice from one of my old teachers at Durmstrang, and they do not want me seeing you anymore. But I'll have you also know that I fought them tooth and nail, and am on the edge of punishment, but I'll take it gladly. I love you, Gemma, and no matter what magical freak they throw at us, always remember that.... always remember...


*At that moment the muggle song began to play softly from the letter and in a large blank space in the parchment the lyrics began to appear as they were sung*

...I'm sorry that I hurt you... its somthing I must live with everyday...

*Gemma sat there after it was all done, too stunned to move for the moment, and read the last bits of the letter*

Even though I didn't get to see my brother at all, I feel that my trip was a bit productive in that I have begun to see things in a new light... I have realized that I would choose you over everything that I used to hold in high esteem...

Love Always, your faithful and devoted servent, if you'll still have me,
Velkan Ivanova


*Gemma gently folded the letter and put it back in the envelope. She turned to Mei, who was sitting next to her quietly*

"..Well... I'm of a mind to forgive him now... was that a good letter?"

*Mei merely smiled, and Gemma was close to tears*

"I guess... I guess I'll have to burn that letter I wrote earlier..."

*Mei nodded lightly to Velkan, who was chewing on his fingernails anxiously, and Gemma turned in his direction, laughing when she saw him anxiety*

*But just to sport with him a bit longer, she decided to wait until lunch was over before publically forgiving him. She smiled as she turned back around and began her meal*

coming home... [06 Jan 2005|10:26pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

*Velkan sits in a stoney silence with his father in the compartment of the train*

First he brings that THING along... then he makes me days LATE for school... what is his problem?

*They had just finished agruing loudly and violently in their rapid Bulgarian language, and Velkan could feel his temper boiling just under the 'out of control' mark*

So... his excuse is that some teacher back and Durmstrang had counciled him that his son should only date Slytherin girls, eh? Well... we'll just see about that... I am so screwed. Gemma probably thinks that I hate her and have run away with a veela, if she even knows what a veela is... It's a good thing I enchanted this letter...

*He fingers the letter that kind of resembles a howler... he had gone into a muggle town to escape his father and older brother, who he didn't even get to see after the whole ordeal, and found a muggle song that seemed rather appropriate for his situation. Hoobastank's "the reason"... so he enchanted the letter to play the song upon opening it. He hoped she would still read it, or even OPEN it after what she had endured...*

*he sighed and turned to the window. His father moved to say something to him, and abruptly Velkan stood and walked out of the compartment.*

I can't even stand to be in the same room with that man... how could he try to rip me apart from Gemma? THe only woman who's ever loved me?... well... he seems to have done a rather good job of it, hasn't he?

*Velkan wandered to the back of the train, where his owl was hopping in its cage. He grinned and gave it the letter, then let it off the train.*

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes...


I... I still love you, Gemma...

Lying in her bed [06 Jan 2005|10:11pm]

gemma_thompson
[ mood | crushed ]

*Gemma ignores Mei's subliminal hints about going to bed.*

She'll live... I'm too tired to fall asleep right now. I know if I do go to sleep, I'll only dream of what he could have been doing with that woman... veela... thing... the whole week.

*she breaks out into a cold sweat and grabs her journal*

</i>I havn't seen him since break ended, coward... I... I must get my feelings out, however, otherwise I'll be incredibly tense and more unpredictable and a wreck even more than I am now...</i>

*she begins to write:*


Where do we go from here?
This isn't where we intended to be...
We had it all, you believed in me
I believed in you...

Certainties disappear
what do we do for our dream to survive?
how do we keep all our passions alive
as we used to do?

Deep in my heart I'm concealing
things that I'm longing to say...
Scared to confess what I'm feeling
frightened you'll slip away...

you must love me...
you must love me...

Why aren't you at my side?
How can I be any use to you now?
give me a chance and I'll let you see how
nothing has changed

Deep in my heart I'm concealing
things that I'm longing to say...
Scared to confess what I'm feeling
frightened you'll slip away...

you must love me...
you must love me...
You must love me...


*She puts her quill away and blots the ink, tears streaming down her face*

God help me to have strength if I meet up with Velkan...

*She rashly gets up and throws all of her posessions in her tattered trunk... then grabs another piece of parchment to owl Velkan. hurriedly she scribbles:*

I don't expect my love affairs to last for long
never fool myself that my dreams will come true
being used to travel, I anticipate it...
but all the same, I hate it, wouldn't you?

so what happens now?
(another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by, you always have before)
Where am i going to?

Time and time again I've said that I don't care
That I'm immune to gloom, that I'm hard through and through
but every time it matters all my words desert me
so anyone can hurt me, and they do

so what happnes now?
(another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by, you always have before)
Where am i going to?

Call in three months time and I'll be fine, i know
well maybe not that fine
but I'll survive but I'll survive anyhow
I won't recall the names and places of each sad occasion
but that's no consolation here and now

so what happens now?
(another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by, you always have before)
Where am i going to?

Don't ask anymore...



I understand if you have found someone more beautiful than me... so at the end of this quarter I'll leave to give you space...


Gemma


((I'm thinking that she left all of her rational...ness... with Sirius... or something, cause she's going off the deep end...))

The Ravenclaw Dorms [06 Jan 2005|09:00pm]

[ mood | feminazi-ish ]

I have become the scourge of men who exploit or allow themselves to enjoy the exploitation of women, and also veela.

Feel my wet fish of wrath.

I think Oliver isn't very fond of me anymore. I wonder why.

I think I need some sleep. I'm glad to be back.

I hope Gemma is doing alright. She seemed pretty upset over Velkan's thing with the veela. When I next see him, he is so getting the wet fish. Also, I think I might rub it in that veela's hair, if I can find her. What was she doing here, anyway?


*Goes to bed with the lights on and groans, trying to hint Gemma to stop reading and turn off the lights*

I'm BACK!!! The cruise was AMAZING! We had a small room, but we didnt spend very much time in it, except at night....you know....to SLEEP. The ship was huge, though. It had a theater, a huge dining room, a cafeteria bigger that the Great Hall, a casino(Oliver spent WAY too much time there), and even a LIBRARY!!! It was soooooooo COOL! I want to go on another one.

After the cruise, we went to Disney World. And OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!! It was so much fun! We spent an entire day in Magic Kingdom, then the Next in Animal Kingdom, then the next in Epcot, then the next in MGM. I LOVED IT!!! The silly muggles who created it are GENIUSES!!!!

Magic Kingdom:We went on Buzz Lightyear, Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Pirates of the Carribian, Haunted Mansion(which WAS acctually haunted...people think the ghosts are fake!), and we walked around and tlked to some of the charaters...like Mickey, Minnie, and the princesses....

Animal Kingdom:We went on Dinosaur Ride, Safari thingy, Rapids thingy(we got soaked!), and we walked around and went to some shows there. And bought stuff.

Epcot: We went on Test Track, Mission Space, Body Wars, Underneath the Sea, and we walked though the countries(the potrayal of Britan wasnt THAT bad, they we just playing on history) and bought more stuff.

MGM: We went on the Star Wars ride, Tower of Terror(doesnt have real ghosts), Rock n' Roll Roller Coaster, and we walked through backstage stuff....and bought stuff.....

SO! Now that I'm BACK...I need to distibute all of the gifts I got for Gemma, and Mei, and Bridget, and Velkan, and.....well...I think thats it....I have to check my list.

*Oliver comes in holding the last of Kendra's extremely large bags*

"Here you are, hon. I didnt want the House Elfs to collapse underneath your luggage."

*Kendra play-punches him in the arm*

"Oliver...why do you have to leave? I mean...COME ON! You still have two or three days before you're called back to quidditch...you can stay with me."

*Oliver puts the suitcase down, and sweeps Kendra up into his arms*

"Well, Kendra, darling, I do have time off. Why dont we just...take an extened Vacation? Say...to home?"

*Kendra nods*

"You know, though, Oliver. I need to leave the gifts first."

*He lets her down, she opens up the huge suitcase, and grabs the gifts. She places them on each of their beds, traveling to the Ravenclaw Dorm for Gemma and Mei. Then, after giving Proffeser McGonnagal her extra homework and asking for more, she leaves hand in hand with Oliver to go to Scotland, huge suitcase full of a surpise for Oliver in hand*
