I know, I know, it's been ages since I updated this thing. I'm sorry, I really am! It's just that the homework load has been getting heavier and so I've been spending most of my evenings in the common room, getting help from Hermione. Who is STILL avoiding Ron. Bloody hell.

Nothing much of interest happened, although Dean asked me if he could ask someone else to the Pumpkin Ball. I don't know why he felt he needed me to say yes, but I did anyway. It doesn't really bother me...

Hey, Luna, are you still missing any of your things?

Why does everyone keep asking me if I'm alright? I'm bloody fine.

That aside, the homework just keeps coming. I can't believe Ron, Hermione, and Harry got through it all last year Well, maybe Hermione, but she's always been that smart. So I've been spending a lot of time in the library and the common room. It's tiring, but I want to pass my O.W.L.s, so it's to be expected, I guess.

The Pumpkin Ball's coming up sooner than I thought. I wonder if Ron'll ask Hermione.

Anyway, Hogsmeade's today. Anyone feel like coming with me?

I'm sorry I haven't updated lately. 5th year's been extremely busy and all of my teachers keep giving us the "OWLs-are-the-most-important-thing-this-year-so-you'd-better-pass" talk.

Quidditch tryouts were last Monday, so I decided to try out as a Chaser. It went pretty well, I think, and I'm glad Harry's back to play Seeker again. Umbridge was a demented bat for taking him, Fred, and George off the team.

Ran into Dean yesterday, for the first time since we started school. He and I didn't really talk much and... well, when you don't talk at all during the summer, I guess you drift apart, or whatever all those sappy love books say. So I think Dean and I are back to being friends although I wish he'd do something about that strange poster with the characters that don't move!. We didn't say it, but it feels weird to be going steady with someone you haven't seen around much. So there you go. And now he doesn't have to worry about Ron trying to hex him.

Besides, he doesn't like Inkblot. I don't think Inky liked him either--tried to slash off his hand. I told him he was only playing, but he was still pretty angry.

One last thing-- I saw a few Ravenclaw girls outside Transfiguration class laughing about these strange Muggle items. I remembered Luna mentioning that her CDs were missing and, basically...

Luna, I have two of your CDs. I'll give them to you tonight.

I don't know what was wrong with the barrier. And I don't know what's wrong with that reporter person... but I think Hermione was very mad once we were on the train. I sat with Luna and we let Inkblot and Nissa play together, and then I think I fell asleep for awhile. When I woke up, we were close to arriving. I know I visited with Harry and everyone for awhile, although I couldn't find Dean at all. Not that I was LOOKING.

Professor Dumbledore gave his speech, and to tell you the truth, I'm a bit nervous about this Pumpkin Ball. Neville's nice, but if I go with him again, my feet will hurt for a week! Well, that won't be for awhile, I think. I'm looking forward to Quidditch tryouts, though. Since Harry's back and a loads better Seeker than I'll ever be, I'm going to try for Chaser. It should be fun. The feast was excellent, and I'm tired now, so I'm going to turn in.

Well, as you can tell, we're in Grimmauld Place. Poor Tonks was having some trouble with dinner, when it started fighting back, so Hermione and I jumped in to help. Crookshanks and Inkblot seemed to be having fun chasing everything around, though. And the look on Professor Lupin's face was priceless. I honestly thought he was going to faint! Anyway, we had a nice dinner for awhile, and Tonks is absolutely BRILLIANT with those ears! She promised she'd do hair next time.

Today was just as interesting. I went to help Fred, Harry, Ron, George, and Tonks in the library, but asked Hermione to keep Inkblot with her and Crookshanks. She was knitting some sort of weird wooly snake thing, anyway, so I don't think she minded. He IS still a kitten, after all, and I wasn't sure what kind of books we'd be handling. Everything was fine (except for the one book that glued itself to Ron's nose and tried to suffocate him), until Fred found this large, heavy book with a lime-green cover. It actually had teeth, and then it started flying around the room with those other little black one that kept whapping us over the head. We were able to keep them at bay, but then they crashed into the bookshelves and they both fell over. The bookshelves, not the books. They were too busy trying to bludgeon Tonks to death. I remember hearing a lot of yells but not much else. In fact, I just woke up now and I have a headache.

Err... what happened?

Well, I got my dream interpretation from Lavendar. It took me awhile to put it all together, but...

I'm supposedly seeking advice from Professor Lupin, who is in harmony with himself, and by crying, I had some private fears and frustrations, but at the same time, I was tranquil and joyous. Bloody hell, this dream stuff is AWFUL! Also, someone in my "waking life" acts like Fred and George, and InkBlot is trouble. I think Ron already believes that.

Warded against LavendarCollapse )

InkBlot keeps getting bigger, and he seems to really like Harry. Keeps following him. Harry, I hope he's not bothering you, I think he's just curious. Thank goodness it isn't RON he's following!

Ron doesn't seem too happy that InkBlot got his sweater. In fact, he threatened to de-claw him the painful way, and I don't think he was kidding. He's just a kitten, honestly, he doesn't know any better!

Haven't heard from Dean at all over the summer... I wonder if he found someone else. Well, long-distance relationships ARE complicated, or so I've heard.

Things are pretty dull here. Ron and I have to keep hiding the computer from Dad. Dad, just because the mouse doesn't have fur, you don't have to transfigure it into a REAL one. REALLY.

Oh, by the way, Lavendar, I hear you're doing dream interpretations. Care to try mine? Last night, I dreamed that Professor Lupin was dancing with a giant tea-cup and then I was at the ocean with my kitten and then Fred and George showed up with a niffler and I cried for some reason.

... Bloody hell, that sounded strange when I wrote that.

Sorry I haven't been updating. Dad got a hold of this thing and (like Ron), it took me awhile to get all the marks and dirty fingerprints off. I swear, Dad and his love for everything muggle...

Things have been really peaceful here. Yeah, right. Well, peaceful enough, anyway. I already went to Diagon Alley with Luna, so I didn't find any reason to go, really. And Mum's grown closer to Inkblot, who's now pawing at the keys, like he wants to type. He's really very cute!

Oh, yeah, Luna, you didn't know that, did you? Mum said I could keep him as long as I took good care of him and I intend to.

That's about it, really. Took one of the brooms from the shed and went flying and almost fell off. I guess I was tired or something. Fred went all "big brother" on me, so I just stood there and apologized until he got bored yelling at me. Brothers...

One last thing...

happy (very) late birthday, Harry!

Look here, Hermione reckons we should contact you, so here goes.

I'm still mad at you for what you did to our family. But I don't want Mum to cry over you anymore and Dad to get all tightlipped. I'm sorry you've been having Ministry troubles, and if you want to talk about any of the above, I guess I'll listen. But don't expect too much from us yet.

Fred and George have arrived and I must say, it's great to see them again! The Burrow's definitely got a better mood about it, and everyone's smiling more. Now all we need is Percy and we can be one big happy family. At least it's noisy again.

And... er... Mum, I need to talk to you about something that I found in Diagon Alley.
