I am, contrary to popular belief, still alive, and no I did not transfigure myself. I can only imagine who started that rumour. Padfoot Prongs

Oh, and James, I left some books with you, and I see now that you've noticed as well. Please bring them with you to Diagon Alley (Yes, I fully intend to be there), unless it's a bother, in which case please at least bring Jane Eyre. It's not my copy, so I'd like to return it to its owner as soon as possible. I don't know what I was thinking when I packed my things, leaving so much behind like that. I seem to be a bit scatterbrained lately, which...is unfortunate, and can only result in Very Bad Things, since when I let my guard down, that's when you all begin to, as Lily would say, "ponce about".

[Private to Prongs and Wormtail]
I know we're not talking about That Which Must Not Be Named, so I wondered if perhaps having a sort of Padfoot Day sometime in the near future would be a potentially good idea. Normally I would have no doubts, but I don't want him to think we're taking pity on him or something, because of course it wouldn't be like that, but you know how Sirius gets, so... Anyway, I'm not the best at planning these sorts of things, so I'll not step out of my league, but if you think perhaps a Sirius-themed outing of some sort would be on, you can definitely count me in.

Remus! I wondered when you would crawl out of whatever book of poetry you had gotten your hands on and join us in the world of linked journals again! Don't look at me like that, you know it's true.

I had TOTALLY forgotten I had given you Jane Eyre, I was wondering where it had gotten to. Can you believe Dee has never read it? Insane.

Anyways, how was your summer? Do anything fun? Meet any nice girls? *wink* Stay out of trouble?

Well, as much as I do love Hogwarts, sometimes it's nice to get away for a bit, you know? I spent what little portion of my summer didn't involve the boys, reading and being Most Appreciative of literature. And I know you're right, which is why I'm not going to try to tell you otherwise. *smile*

Dee has never read Jane Eyre? Perhaps I you should lend it to her when I get it back from James...

Moony! Moons! Moonasaurus! Moonsey!

*dances*

*grins* You're back then? Where on earth were you. And I swear I didn't start any rumours. I just didn't want to be splinched. That's all.

[private to moony and prongs]
Sounds like a good idea to me. Em, what should we do?

You didn't want to be splinched? When did splinching come into this? Wormtail, you're a good mate, but I rarely know what you're on about.

We ponce about whether you're in top form or not. We're just sneakier about it when you are. And I'll bring the books, no problem.

[Private to Marauders]

I just might be under the cloak, though, since Mad Stalker Chick is still being mad and stalking me.

[Protected from Padfoot]
Brill, yeah, we should do that. I'm having a hard time telling just how okay or not he is, which is sca odd. A Padfoot Day couldn't hurt. I vote we bum about London before we head off on the train; maybe go in the night before and head up to Camden. Pub crawl, loud music, tit bars, gillyweed, etc. Yes?

[Protected from Wormtail]

Alright, Moony?

Don't I know it. And thanks, mate.

[Private to Marauders]
We've got to find someone else for her to pour her affections on. Though, that hardly seems to work on other people, so perhaps it's but a pipe dream.

[Protected from Padfoot]
Erm, well, like I said, I'd leave the actual planning up to you. That's...not exactly my area of expertise. Tit bars?

[Protected from Wormtail]
I'm alright. Had a bit of a busy summer, that's all. But thanks for asking.

I'm pretending to not know what you're talking about.

[Protected from Padfoot]

Tit bars! Club pub loud music places with tits and lots of alcohol, 100% gauranteed to distract Pads. London's jammed with them. SoHo, for example, might be better than Camden--farther from Grimmauld Place, anyway, which is sort of the point, right?

[Protected from Wormtail]

No problem, mate.

I pity you, Prongs. Once you get back to Hogwarts, you are doooomed!

I can't bet against that, because I'm all too certain it's going to happen. Is it wrong of me though to find the idea highly amusing?

Did you enjoy Jane Eyre, Remus? Have you read Wuthering Heights?

I enjoyed it very much, actually. And I have read Wuthering Heights, but I must say I didn't care for it. I know, I know, how the mighty hath fallen and all that...heh. It just wasn't my style; I really thought I'd like it, too.

How was your summer, Alice?

I was disappointed when I read Wuthering Heights too. It was just...too depressing for me, I supposse. I admit that I enjoy happy endings (although, admittedly, Jane Eyre was a bit bittersweet). Have you read any other Brontë books? Perhaps Villette?

My summer was good! I did a little work and caught up on a bunch of things that I had been meaning to do. How was yours?

I'm the same way, I think. I prefer happy endings---though not necessarily soppy ones---but the bittersweetness really did appeal to me. Wuthering Heights though, there was really very little I enjoyed about that book. And I've not read any of their other works. Is Villette any good? I'm always looking for new reading material, you know.

My summer was much the same, actually. Got a lot of summer reading done, recreational and otherwise, and I spent a week in Barcelona with my dad and his brother, which was definitely good for a change of pace, though I've always been a bit of a homebody. It's good to be home though, and I'm looking forward to returning to Hogwarts.

I agree, and I also couldn't identify with any of the characters in Wuthering Heights. You probably wouldn't enjoy Villette because the ending is rather ambiguous, and what it does hint at is rather depressing. The plot itself is not the most originally--it's sort of like a reworked version of Jane Eyre almost. However, the psychology of the main character, Lucy, is fascinating and is what carries the book. If you ever do feel like reading it, I'd be happy to lend you my copy.

It seems like everyone went on holiday somewhere. I hate to admit, but I'm extremely jealous! What was Barcelona like?

It's nice to know you're as critical of literature as I am, Alice. We really ought to start a book club or something, though if it's anything like the study groups Lily and I tried to organize, Sirius will throw things at me. But I guess that's unavoidable. Anyway, I'd love to borrow it, if you have it available. Depressing or no, if it's more like Jane Eyre than Wuthering Heights, it can't be all bad. Have you read much of anything by Wilde? He's one of my favourites.

In all honesty, it was more of a business trip than a pleasure trip, so I didn't get to experience the city as much as I would have liked. The food is lovely, however.

Ooh, a book club? That would be marvelous--but if it means that you'll get hurt, nevermind. That would be dreadful. I'll carry around my copy of Vilette so that you'll get it as soon as possible. I'm ashamed to say that I haven't read any Wilde. He's one of those great classics that for some unknown reason I've never had a chance to read.

Still, though, Barcelona sounds marvelous.
