I have never considered anything quite as much of a mistake as this.

I have been joined in my happy isolation by the one whom I am never separate from.

And so the students leave. Hallelujah. I might actually be able to accomplish something this summer.

Perhaps this is the year I'll resign. Nothing is held over my head any longer. Nothing is an obligation to this bloody school.

Private. Strongly warded private.Collapse )

I've fucked up rather badly, obviously.

On the bright side, at least the term is over, and the Brat-Who-Lived is gone from my life. As are his miserable friends.

PrivateCollapse )

I need to go to Grimmauld Place as soon as the students are gone.

Monday.

current mood: stressed

Things progress. Interestingly, I have become isolated from both sides; I suspect this is actually because neither side is doing anything of note. It's a bit difficult to have a war if no one is doing anything.

Has anyone even noticed that half of Diagon Alley was blown up? I can only assume, having been informed by his parents, that since Goyle's body was found there that he had something to do with it.

Bloody idiot.

I am much amused by the Boy Who Lived and his escape. Perhaps you'll learn not to put the little bastard in a cage.

I wouldn't mind knowing, Kingsley, how one of my students got killed and your personnel failed to notify me. More to the point, why an investigation was going on without consulting me.

Or would you care to discuss this in front of the Wizengamot?

And there is Narcissa's murder to avenge.

Private to LuciusCollapse )

I am surprised to find that things have become quiet here. I suspect it is too much to dare hope that the thought of NEWTs has finally put some sense into the students' heads.

Good god.

This is unexpected.

Private to MinervaCollapse )

Several of my students have just returned from extended trips, a folly to undertake in their final year, but when has that ever mattered to a student?

I think I shall talk to them this week.

Private to LuciusCollapse )

I fully expect that my wardrobe will be in its proper place immediately. Unless who ever did this would like to die gruesomely.

Very, very gruesomely indeed.

I have a feeling I know who did this. And I still owe you for your previous "joke".

current mood: irate

Surprisingly, last week's staff meeting was...pleasant. Dare I suggest that such a thing could be made a regular event?

There have been few other developments since.

I suppose if I gave two Knuts about these journals, I would bewail and moan that I do not see it as a place to log my innermost feelings. I am a private person, and shall remain one, whatever happens in my life. However, I am intrigued by recent events.

And I am endlessly amused by those of you who choose to use these journals to blurt out what you think to the world, heedless of the consequences.

Yes, Potter, I am referring to you. I have lectured you once on warding your entries...perhaps this time you will pay attention? Famous Harry Potter, of course.

Private to the teachersCollapse )

Private to FirenzeCollapse )

Private to LuciusCollapse )

((I just thought I'd mention the missing second sentence of the second para because it cracks me up. "Beyond the sudden presence of large numbers of girls who, whatever they may claim, have not attended a class here all year."))

So, another week of chaos and confusion ends. I found myself enjoying speaking to Firenze...perhaps this is only surprising to me. He is a direct person, an attribute that is much appreciated by the Head of Slytherin House. Every conversation here resembles a chess match more than anything else.

Some of the first years are still upset over MacDougal's death. I suspect that the lack of response - beyond Minerva's bloody useless curfew - is only encouraging the perpetrators. The urge to administer Veritaserum to the entire school is strong. However, the Aurors should be the ones finding out what happened. And I have the suspicion that it might be...a problem, were I to tread on Lupin's toes. It is his house and his student.

Perhaps this reads as a littany of bitching. Perhaps it is. Nonetheless, it is what I am thinking at the moment. I think that there needs to be less reliance on the status quo in this school, and more on change. When Dumbledore died, I thought that things might improve...but so far they have remained the same. Some of this is my responsibility, but it is worrying to think that I may be the only faculty member interested in finding out which of our students is a murderer.

A most inappropriate role for the head of Slytherin, investigating the death of a Gryffindor.

Wonderful.

Absolutely bloody fucking wonderful.

When I find out who did this, their feet will not touch the ground.

I can't decide if it's worse if it was Slytherins or not. No one would believe it wasn't, let's put it that way.

Bloody fucking hell.

current mood: infuriated

I think I'm losing my mind.

And I'm meeting Lucius in Rome.

The two are not related, much as I might wish they were.

The conversation with Miss Parkinson was...enlightening. I wish that she did not feel that she needs to be the one to lead the Army, but apparently, she does.

If I find Potter, I will wring his miscreant little neck.

This is what it comes to. Potter and Parkinson missing class on the same day. How...pathetic.

Of course, Boot's missed class for the last week, but it is the sort of thing one expects from him.

But Potter - saviour of the world - and Parkinson - seer - both electing to skip class on the same day does not bode well for the outcome of the war.

Goes to show that you cannot place your faith in children.

current mood: cynical

I am having more and more difficulty updating this bloody thing. I suspect that has a lot more to do with my own reliance on myself as the only Secret Keeper I can afford to have than with any sort of interest in the content.

PrivateCollapse )

Warded to Fred and George WeasleyCollapse )

current mood: accomplished
