I'm certainly not complaining, but when James is per the usual practicing his Lily Evans Lament (which is quite lovely the first few times you hear it, but after that it becomes very repetitive, and makes one wonder where all the good crooners of Days Long Past have gone, though I digress) while Sirius is charming (figuratively, not literally, as far as I know) the pants off the girls, including Slytherins, and Peter seems to be getting along quite famously with Marlene... I feel a bit like an extra wheel. Not that I feel like I need to be seeing someone or pursuing someone in order to fit in, but everyone's so busy lately. I'm not feeling sorry for myself, I'm just musing. It is my journal afterall. I wonder though, since Dee apparently ended things with her summer bloke, perhaps... Oh nevermind; she's a friend, it probably wouldn't be feasible anyway.

[Private to Sirius]
And this is not aimed at you, mate. I know your situation, and I'm merely venting. Nothing to do with you.

Ugh. I read the above and realized what a terrible run-on sentence that was. I must sound more pathetic than I thought. I really need to distract myself; perhaps all this classwork is getting to me. I'd like to be focusing on Defense Against the Dark Arts, but it's all so basic anymore. It's almost as if they don't want us to learn. I wonder if they're just afraid of what we'll do if we think we have a fair grasp of things. I recognize the need to be cautious, but I think they're being a bit overbearing, if that's the case.

Anyway, not much of an update, I realize. But an update nonetheless.

Aww, Remus! Fret not, I will disregard all my ickle gals and pay more attention to you! So will James. Actually, we planned a Quidditch practice-game-thing with you and Pete, remember? Doesn't that sound like fun?


[Private to Remus]
I think we should just forget about school and our problems. How about we have a little fun and recite James's Lament to Lily. Peter, you and yours truly. Or, we should serenade Lily or something!


Acccccctually, we do have an invisibility cloak...eh? eh? eh?

Erm, Quidditch isn't exactly my forte, and brooms aren't exactly Pete's. Bribery may have to be involved before you'll get us out there.

[Private to Sirius]
Much as I do enjoy the Cloak, I don't think I really want to harass Lily with it. She's always been a rather good friend of mine, and you know how she is when she gets angry. I was thinking more along the lines of a Hogsmeade trip, the four of us, like we used to?

C'mon! We'll teach you and Wormy has to learn sooner or later, right? C'mooon.

[Private to Remus]
Er, mate? I wasn't actually thinking of harassing Lily with the Invisibility cloak. I was actually thinking of good things -- like you said, Hogsmeade.

I just don't know. I'm much more suited to On The Ground activities, and I'm sure Peter feels the same way, but...well, depends on what he says. I refuse to be your only scapegoat.

[Private to Sirius]
Oh! Well I misunderstood then. You sounded like... I thought that's what you were implying. Sorry. But yes, good things. Hogsmeade. Definitely.

I like Quidditch! I mean, sometimes I fall off, and I am a little afraid of heights stuff, but I'm, ok! I'll play, if Moony will. Please Moony? Pleeeease? But, can it be me and James or me and Sirius, cause those two are super brilliant at it, and me and you, Moons...well, we're not the very greatest, even if we can play ok (no offense, Moony, mate), but can it be like that?

Remember last time you and Moons were against us? You guys nearly died out there. Sorry! I think James and Worms Vs Sirius and Moons sounds perfect, don't you? C'mooooon, Remus! I promise to only go after James.

I know it's no substitute for friends, but would you like me to owl you that Bronte book we were talking about before? I could just drop it off at the Gryffindor table, if you'd like.

Certainly, Alice! That would be great. We really ought to get together sometime and discuss good Muggle literature, but I know you must be busy.

Oh, no bother! I can make time for you, Remus! Especially if it invovles good Muggle literature.

The, er, Lily Evans Lament? I shudder to think. Er, why a lament? I'm not dead. And please, if at all possible, make sure he never sings that when I'm there. See this is why, well, nevermind Please?

[Private to remus]

If I squint I can kind of see what you scored out, and if I'm reading it correctly then I think you should go for that, but take it slow. She is cut up, but she needs a friend, and I know I'm a friend, but you're a friend that I think she might like, though I'm not getting your hopes up here. But you guys would be great, so I say put some wheels in motion, Remus.

If I read it wrong, then never mind. *wink*

Oh, and I agree about the DADA classes. I mean, we're being taught things we already know, and I for one would love to see some practical application. Which is why the sooner we get these extra classes up and running the better.

I...didn't mean literally singing. I meant more his general attitude when you've shot him down yet again. Not that I blame you. Or him. You know, it's your own lives, I'm just...you know, sometimes he becomes absolutely inconsol---nevermind. You know what I mean. I think. Sorry for the confusion.

[Private to Lily]
Oh, I thought I scored that out pretty thoroughly... I don't want her to feel like she needs to feel sorry for me or anything, nor do I want you to feel that way. I just thought, you know, she and I get along rather well, and she's always been nice to me... You think she'd like me though? And don't worry about getting my hopes up; I'd find it pretty hard to believe someone like Dee would be interested since she's so... Ugh, nevermind. My penmanship is suffering. I think my ink is blotting.

Definitely need to get these extra classes going, for sure. Have you talked to Ted recently? Or Andy, for that matter? I'm rather excited about the prospect; contrary to what the professors might believe, it's important for the students to know how to defend themselves if it comes to that. And actually, I know a few non-prefects who would probably be very interested in something like this, and who could very likely show us a thing or two. Severus comes to mind.

Right, of course, I mean, I know what you mean. Kind of. Never mind, it doesn't matter anyway.

[Private to Remus]
Stop putting yourself down, Remus. You're an amazing guy and Dee would be crazy NOT to like you.
[/private]

I haven't talked to Ted yet, but there is a prefect's meeting tonight, isn't there? Perhaps he will bring it up then. I know there are a few other students who are interested in teaching it, who are not prefects. But Severus? Really? Well, maybe I'll ask him. I don't know., nevermind. We'll see.
