*snort* Another "mod post" because I'm a postwhore.

We're moving!

Amy and I wanted more icon possibilities (as in, unlimited ones) so we're picking up and moving to GreatestJournal. The community name over there is the same as this one. Me and Amy are maintainers, as moonshadow_ava and leanan_ward.. we're not going to move everything ever, except for the last Ava post, and a link back to here.

I don't know if your same usernames are available over there, but whatever. We're starting second year like, this weekend, so you guys can join and pop in whenever :D We'll post the first post of the year, and we'll mention you guys, so you'll have an idea of what'll be going on.

*dances* *goes to collect Claire Danes icons for PB-ness* I love it. MWAHAHAHA.

Dear Diary,

Well, Sara's wedding was just beautiful. She looked so pretty and so did Andromeda and so did I hehe. Her robes were so white and her roses were so pink and purple and...it was all very girly. But then my sister is girly so I guess that's that.

Ava was there of course! We had lots of fun. Michael's family are all muggles and so they were very confused but very nice. Sirius came with Andromeda and her husband and Sirius kept asking me to dance but I just said ew and so he danced with Ava hehe.

Everyone is very tired now and Ava and I fell asleep in the parlour in our dresses last night we were so tired. Ava will have to go home soon and Ill be really sad. But we'll see each other again real soon! We'll back at Hogwarts in a month and a half! It seems like a long time but it's not really.

Ava can probably talk more about the wedding than I can hehe. I need a nap.

Dear Diary,

I'm sitting on my bed right now in my room, and it's HOT outside. It's okay inside though Thornbridge has really really old cooling charms. Still, my brothers are all out playing Quidditch in the field like idiots. Sara and mum and Andromeda Black Tonks (she is my sister's matron of honor I found out, it's making her family really mad even if they disowned her or whatever. Her new baby girl is SO CUTE!!!) are in London shopping for Sara's bridal robe. When Ava comes to visit she can come shopping with me for my dress, mum says!

Ava is coming to visit next week!!!!!!

I'm glad. After being at Hogwarts I am really lonely all of a sudden. I miss Seph and Alice and Hannah and the boys and most of all Ava. I didn't really have friends before and now I miss them!!! This house is too big and full of...wedding stuff.

But I like being home. I missed my mum and dad lots too. They are really proud of my marks and that makes me proud.

My bad dreams started to come back right after I came home though. I don't know why, but still they aren't as bad this time. At least, I don't THINK they are. I can't remember the old ones much, I guess I'll have to read what I wrote about them.

But anyways, I sleep better at home hehe.

Dear Diary,

I PASSED!!!! I did a twirlly dance with Ava in the hall, heehee! I got the highest score on almost all of my exams too! I don't know what I was worrying about, I'm smart, hehehe. Severus Snape and I both had the highest score in potions, and he passed me in Defence Against The Dark Arts, hmmph. I'll pass him in everything next year for sure. Kerrith Wilkes barely scraped by in anything, that made me feel oh so wonderfully pleased. Bwaahaahaaaaa.

Ava got really good scores too! So did Remus...Sirius and James and Peter aren't showing us theirs, hehehe. We're the smartest ever.

I'm going to miss school! But at least I know I'm coming back now, hehehe. Time to start packing up my things I guess...

Dear Diary,

I'm taking a break from studying because I'm absolutly tired of it. I think Leanan even is getting sick of it. Today it's raining and I'm kind of glad about that because it makes me want to go outside less. If it was pretty and sunny I think that would make studying very hard.

Exams start tomorrow and I am both excited and upset. Excited because that means it's summer holidays but upset because I have to go home, and all my friends are here at Hogwarts! But I guess they'll all be at home too. I wrote before I am visiting Leanan in the summer which will be very fun. But I don't think I will see any of my other friends until August when we come back.

Today at breakfast Leanan and me saw Remus and Sirius, and I asked them how their studying was going. Sirius laughed at me like it was a silly question, like what would he need to study for? Leanan rolled her eyes because Sirius might be smart but so is Leanan and she's studying a lot. And I am too. And I think Remus started to say that he was studying a lot too but Sirius was being all full of himself so Remus couldn't talk. And then they left. It was kind of weird.

I think I should get back to studying, I have a lot of essays to read over and review. It's starting to get noisy in here though and I think I'll go to the library. Good night!

Love Ava

Dear Diary,

CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!

The school looks so pretty and there's snow on the ground and YAY! All the older kids keep trying to make out under the mistletoe, yuck. Sirius tried with me but I kicked him hehe. So he kissed Persephone instead! hehehehe she turned so red!

Ava's mum sent my mum an owl about holidays, and they say it's okay for Ava to come to my house with me forst christmas eve, and then we'll go to her house for christmas day! New Years we'll be with our own families. We'll have so much fun! Mum says she knew Ava's aunt when SHE was in school! Even tho mum was a couple of years older. They were both on the Ravenclaw Quidditch team, Ava's aunt was a seeker in her third year! I don't know what is odder...that my mum knows Ava's aunt or that my mum played Quidditch.

The boys are staying here over holidays and that sounds like lots of fun too. I bet they will have all kinds of fun.

Pippin is looking very festive indeed, I have tied a red bow around his neck. He looks quite in the holiday spirit, even though I think he's quite annoyed with me.

I have to wrap presents for my friends here at school now mum sent me a big box of candy to split up and give people.

Gotta run now! Snowball fight out on the grounds!

Dear Diary,

SO MUCH TO WRITE!

It's been a while since Ava last updated, we've been so busy with school and homework but we're learning so much we don't care all that much. Halloween was so much fun. Ava and I are together almost all the time and whenever we are with Gryffindor, the boys are with us and its fun. Sirius and James are starting to get annoying...kinda like annoying brothers... but Remus is great. Ava likes him LOTS hehe.

I think Sirius and Severus finally HATE each other. I dont even think they know why half the time they're fighting. All we know is that they keep getting in trouble for hexing each other. I mean yeah Sirius is kinda annoying and Severus is kinda creepy but this is just rediculous. I actually found Sirius in the LIBRARY of all places trying to learn some new hexes. Honestly.

All I can say is that I might not like him very much but Severus and I have stopped fighting. It's kinda a long story but it's after dinner and my homework is done and Ava is playing chess with Hannah so here goes.

Parchment saving spell, heheheCollapse )


Yeah Sirius and James will prolly pick on him forever and yeah he's creepy...but I can't be mad anymore. He didnt just cover me he gave me the best revenge ever. And I think he took care of my bad dreams for a while. Guess mum's right sometimes. He's still really creepy though.

Remus was sick again last week. Ava and I cant figure out whats wrong that the hospital wing cant fix him right up but oh well. He told Ava its just some weird sickness he gets. I hope it gets better.

My hand is cramping. Gonna go watch chess game now.

Dear Diary,

It is saturday, and things are pretty quiet. Ava and I are sitting outside near the lake with some other girls, it's a little cold out so we are wearing our scarves. I'm catching up on my Transfiguration homework. I actually slept well last night so I can study without a headache! Hannah wanted help with her Potions homework too, seein' as how I'm gettin good marks in that class. I'm really happy about that.

We haven't seen Remus all day. Come to think of it I don't think I've seen James, Peter and Sirius either since breakfast. Ava is worried. I am too but the boys don't tooooo much so maybe things are fine. Or maybe boys are just dumb.

Anyways when I'm done with homework I hope Ava will want to explore. This place is so big and we have spent so much time with school, we haven't seen hardly any of it!

Ava said that was a double negative. Ava needs to go jump in the lake hehehe. (but not really)

1:47 am - I can't sleep!

October 4th, 1971


Dear Diary

Ok well it's about three in the morning now and I can't sleep. Leanan is sleeping like a baby which is strange for her, I usually am asleep a long time before she is. It is cold in our room and Alice is snoring and there are strange noises.

I wish I was quiet like Leanan and could sneak out of the common room and go for a walk. I am afraid I would get in so much trouble though, if Mr. Filch found me, he is scary and I dont want to run into him ever. I went down to the common room and read a book for a little while and I was thinking about Remus and how I think he is sick but no one will tell me why. I am still a little bit annoyed but not with Remus because if he was sick that is a good reason to not come to lunch but it isnt very nice of his friends to not tell me what happened when I ask. Peter almost told me but then Sirius whacked him.

I think I am feeling homesick which I have never felt before. I kind of miss my mum, and maybe even dad a little bit too. I don't really miss my brother although it would be kind of fun to try to teach him the things I know now.

I am glad it is the weekend now and I can sleep in tomorrow morning and maybe Remus will be better too. I don't like him or anything though. Just like Leanan doesn't like Sirius.

Love Ava

Wow, it's been a busy month! We havent written in a little while but we've been having lots of fun and learning so much. My handwritin is getting better I think, thanks remembering to all those years at stuffy girls school.

So I guess Ava and Remus were gonna sit together at lunch today...they do that sometimes. But Remus didn't show up and James, Sirius and Peter (he's their newest friend) wouldn't tell us where he is. I think he must be sick but then why wouldn't they tell us? Its a mystery. But we have all weekend to figure it out. I'm sure everyting will be okay Ava. I mean, I heard James talking about the four of them sneaking off and exploring the halls this weekend. He HAS to be ok....right?

Last night Slytherin and Gryffindor were leaving the great hall after dinner and Sirius and Severus got into a fight. Like, a big fight with both fists and magic. A bunch of students that were watching and cheering got singed and hexed from the sidelines and the boys are really bruised and moody today. I heard that Sirius won even though it was really hard to tell. Nobody seems able to tell me what started it tho, and Sirius WON'T tell me. Oh well.

In normal news classes are good. I really like studying, and I like most of my classes. History of Magic is still really boring and I have to put up with Severus making my books blur in Potions...and he has to put up with me making his Quill jump out of his hand. I like Astronomy best of all. Too bad it's only once a week. Herbology is fun, even when Persephone accidently touched one of the rose-looking things and had singing purple flowers growing out of her hair for a week.

My dreams aren't coming every night anymore. I still have trouble sleeping tho. Sometimes I wake up Ava, but I don't want her to have to be as tired as me all the time. I learned that I'm very very good at sneaking so...I've snuck down to the library a few times. Or to the Astronomy Tower, to look at the stars.

I know it's bad but I don't hurt anything and I haven't been cauwt yet. Not even by any ghosts.

Ava and I are still bestest friends, of course, hehehehe

We have homework to do now and my mum sent me a bunch of my 'muggle novels' as Sirius says. I like Wuthering Heights, thank you very much!

I am writing this at lunch and before I have to go to the rest of my lessons today but I would just like to say that boys are very silly and I don't know why I even bothered liking them anyway. Because they're all stupid.

And that I'm glad Leanan is my best friend! But now I have to go. I always write very short things and Leanan aways writes very long things.

Love Ava

I am writing in the astronomy tower! We are studying the stars with gryffindor tonight with our new telescopes. Professor Helm is teaching us their names and just walking around, making sure we take our notes on how they move. I like her she smiles a lot.

I love this tower and I love the stars. Im not tired anymore, I just want to keep on watching them. I think James and Sirius are being silly but I can't see them so I dont know. And I don't want to stop looking at the sky. It is so clear and beutiful and as long I am up here I don't have to sleep and have bad dreams.

I have learned tho Ava can sleep anywhere and sleeps like the dead. She and Remus sat next to each other to share notes then fell asleep. Theyll wake up when Professor Helm comes back our way hehe.

Im never going back to bed ever.

Dear Diary,

I am so sleepy. Its only lunch but Im already falling asleep on the bench. I only got a litle sleep last night and when I did sleep I had really really really bad dreams. Ava and Persephone (shes another girl in our dorm) said I should maybe talk to a teacher about it but I think the dreams will go away when Im used to bein away from home.

My little brother david sent me his very first letter this morning at breakfast! A owl almost dropped it right in my porridge. Hes only four but he already knows his letters. He says he misses me lots and lots and I miss him to.

Charms this morning was so interesting but I was so sleepy! History of Magic is interesting too but only when Im reading the books on my own bed. I thout bein taut by a ghost would be the best ever but Prof Binns is the most boring ghost to ever die!

At least I dont have to worry about Severus Snape today all of our classes on tuesdays and thursdays are with Gryffindor. He frowned at me at breakfast this morning and I stuck my tongue out at him.

I heard a second year Hufflepuff got her braids dipped in an inkwell by some mean Slytherin girl yesterday. Im gonna make sure Im not near ANY Slytherins this year tho I guess Im kinda stuck next to Severus in potions. At least hes next to me so I can keep an eye on him.

Ava got lots of sleep last night. I told her to make sure I stay awake I like school and I dont want to miss anything!

P.S. Sirius learned how to say a spell that makes my hair ribbon keep untying, even when I tie it agan. If he wasnt so nice Id hate him!

Dear Diary,

Well Leanan wrote a nice long entry for earlier and now I don't have to write everything! I'm glad we came up with this shared diary. It will save a lot of time and a lot of things happen here, we're always so busy.

After lunch we had transfiguration, which I think will be a hard class but interesting. Professor McGonagall is the teacher and we have the class with Slytherin again. I told Leanan she should learn how to turn Severus Snape into a toad. She laughed but told me to be nice. I thought it was a pretty nice thing to say, I could have said to turn him into a worm or an insect or something.

We have History of Magic with Gryffindor which is good because it seems like it will be a very boring class. Professor Binns is a ghost, but a very boring ghost. Not even scary. Not even interesting. We have a lot of classes with Gryffindor it seems like, because we have Defence Against the Dark Arts with them tomorrow too, but I don't mind. Leanan and I have friends in there already. Sirius and James are all right. They're funny at least. But kind of not very nice sometimes, like to that Slytherin boy but he deserved it anyway. I don't know Leanan's sister, but I don't like the mudblood thing either I think it's very rude. I don't blame Leanan for being upset.

I'm glad about having History with them though. With the Gryffindors I mean. James and Sirius were even goofing off a bit today and it was only the first day. I have a feeling they will be able to get away with anything in there.

We had flying lessons today too! Again with Gryffindor, and it was really fun. There were a few people who already knew how, because they played Quidditch with their friends at home (which is really cool and lucky, I've only seen a Quidditch match once in my life with Mum and Dad, when we were on vacation in Ireland but I really liked it) We didn't really learn that much, just how to hover a bit off the ground and start and stop going. James Potter learned how really fast and the teacher said that he should try out for the Quidditch team, because he looked like a good flyer. It was a lot of fun.

Remus told me I did a good job when we were done with that too and that made me smile. I didn't say anything though and I wish I wasn't so shy.

We just got back from dinner now and it's been a really long day. Leanan and I are in the Ravenclaw common room and soon it'll be bedtime. I'm very tired. I'm going to stop writing now and maybe go to bed. I might fall asleep here on the couch if I don't go soon.

Love Ava

Dear Diary,

It is lunchtime now and Ava and me have already had a very strange exciting day! My vest is itchy.

This morning we all came down to breakfast and we had to keep up with everyone else or we woulda gotten lost. This school is so big!!! Alice says her sister kinda told her how to get to all the important places so she doesnt think she will get lost. I guess Alice is good to have around even if she DOES snore at night

Breakfast was good we sat with Ravenclaw of course but Siris and his friend James came over to visit us. Sirius and I talked about when my family visited his family a long time ago. I like James he looks and acts just like my brother Matthew only my age. Ava said hi to Remus and he said hi to her and they are both shy and just like each other and I think they will be good friends too. We are making friends with our own house too hehe.

While we were eating I saw a boy at the Slytherin table all by himself. I 'membered him from the sorting hat last night. His name is Severus and I dont think he has any friends yet. All the other kids at his table were talking to each other but he just sat in the corner looking out the window or reading. He kept hiding behind his hair too. I thout he might be homesick like me he was frowning but his eyes looked kinda sad. James and Sirius started to tease a little but I scolded them and said to be nice.

I should have let them keep on teasing.

Our first class was Charms, with Gryffindor too, and I really liked it! I knew all the stuff I read again and I took notes and I know more then I thout I did! I was happy about that.

And then we had Potions and Ava, Alice, a Ravenclaw boy named Tristan and me all got a little lost on our way there so we were a tiny bit late. We have Potions with Slytherin. I am trying to stay far away from the girls I used to go to school with so I sat 'tween Ava and Severus. I said hi to him but he didnt say anything back. I told him my name was Leanan Ward and he finally mumbled his name was Severus Snape. Then he said hed heard of my family and was it true that my sister was marrying a Mudblood?

He didn't really ask mean but I HATE THAT WORD! and I told him so. I also told him that my sister was marrying a powerful Wizard and he said that hed heard that my family spent too much time with mudbloods. I said that he spent too much time saying mean things. He stopped talking then and I think he looked a little sorry but I didnt care. I tried to pay attention in class but I kept thinking of all the mean tricks Matty used to play on me and if I could play them on Severus.

But now I remember what mummy told me again about giving people a chance. I will try for the rest of the day at least. The way the girls in Syltherin I used to knoww look at me is kinda worse then anything he said anyway. Im so glad I have Ava!

Sirius is telling me Im spending way too much time with my nose in books. I just told him thats why we are at school! Oh well, lunch is almost done and Alice says she heard we get flying lessons today! I will let Ava write about them and the rest of the day too. Right now we have to hurry and get to Transfiguration lessons!
