It's not that I don't appreciate getting a Valentine's Day card. Really. Only why did my 'secret admirer' have to be so creepy? I mean, yeah, a red rose on a black background is mysterious but it also hints of psychotic murderer, particularly when the greeting within includes things like "I've been watching you." I am unsure whether to be flattered or afraid.

The next person who tells me to chill out is going to grow antlers. And I don't mean out of their head.

There has to be a rational explantion for this.

Private:
Why am I scared to look anybody in the eye? I don't feel embarrassed to be seen particularly, like most people seem to, just..... oh. Oh my. DON'T LOOK AT ANYONE. DON'T THINK ABOUT ANYONE. NO, ESPECIALLY NOT NAKED. Oh, sweet Rowena. Is this how boys feel? How ever do they concentrate on class?

Please, someone tell me there's a way to get rid of this stuff that doesn't involve kissing. I've spent most of the day evading 'helpful' boys but there's only so long I'm going to be able to keep that up, not least because Cho is a bit little to hide behind. There must be a counter-curse, right?

Current Location: behind Cho

Best of luck, Ravenclaw. I'll be out in the stands, cheering you on as usual.

I can't believe how much work five NEWTs is. People doing six are insane. No I'm not going to say anything about the Quidditch. People have been talking about it non-stop. Yes, it was really harsh of Umbridge to ban them, but they shouldn't be hitting anybody really, should they. I barely have time for any extra-curricular activities except illegal students societies any more.

I know it's well-disguised and everything, but carrying this galleon thing makes me nervous, especially when it goes warm. I was walking past Professor Umbridge in the corridor when the serial numbers changed last time and it didn't half make me jump. I yelped slightly and she gave me a quizzical look. I can hardly meet her eyes these days. Not that I imagine many people are particularly keen on looking into her horrible, flabby face, but still. I can't quite believe Cho is making me do this.

Are we allowed to sit with the same people every day for lunch, or does that count as a student organisation? It is a regular meeting of three or more students, after all.

I'm sorry for those of you currently waiting to see if you are allowed to keep your clubs going, Quidditch being a particularly ridiculous example.

Morrigan bought a new board game at the weekend so we're going to sit down and play it in the common room later if anyone fancies joining us. We should be okay doing that, I think, as long as it's just this once and doesn't become a regular meeting.

Current Mood: scared scared

Another owl this morning, quite a funny one though. My dad, Mr I-don't-need-to-pass-my-exams-I'm-going-to-be-an-international-rock-star, deemed it necessary to contact me again, exhorting me to behave myself at school. I can only presume my mum has been on his back, although why she has the idea I might not be behaving myself, I do not know. Perhaps I did not sound enthusiastic enough about Professor Umbridge when I replied to her last owl. I'm also not sure why she thought my dad of all people would have any influence over me whatsoever, but the prospect of them uniting to keep me in line when they can't stand the sight of each other is quite sweet really.

Looking forward to Hogsmeade. It might cheer Cho up. She looks a little brighter when she mentions it. It'll be good to get out, do some shopping and have a drink with friends.

I would not be surprised if my next letter from my mum announced her formal engagement to Professor Umbridge. At least she's happier about me being at Hogwarts now, with a Ministry-approved High Inquisitor, so that's something.
My dad, on the other hand, is completely oblivious and spent most of his last letter talking about the latest Cleansweep. You'd have thought he'd have noticed I'm not interested in Quidditch by now, even if it is him varnishing the brooms.

Ok, this prank? Less funny, more annoying. They could have at least done it at the weekend - I really don't fancy going to lessons hardly having slept. I don't even like coffee, what on earth am I meant to do to stay awake in class?

I just saw a Slytherin - I think it was Adrian Pucey? - with the most bizarre hairstyle. Surely that wasn't intentional?

Current Location: Not in the Common Room, clearly, or she'd be less amused

Cho still fancies Harry Potter. Good grief. As though she doesn't have enough on her plate already. Well, I'll just have to make sure she doesn't go to the owlery on her own again.

Hi. I saw this in the catalogue - no, it wasn't my catalogue, it was my brother's, but I was intrigued enough to flick through it - and thought it sounded quite interesting, and a useful way to communicate with friends. So I ordered one, but I've not really known what to write in it so far. Summer's been pretty awful, and I don't want my first entry to be miserable. So I waited till I had something positive to say, which ended up being not until now.
I'm so glad to be back at school. I was half worried my mum wouldn't let me come back with all the stuff in the papers, but she did. It's not as though she could educate me at home, anyway; she's not got the time. She didn't look very happy when I left, though. I think I'll be getting a lot of owls this year.
So much for a cheerful first entry. Well, I am pleased to be back and amongst my friends again. Owls just aren't the same. It does feel a bit strange, though, doesn't it? Everything's different now. I've never known anyone who died before - not even my grandparents. And there's all these rumours about how it happened, but all we saw...
That's quite enough, Marietta. You'll upset Cho. I am happy to be back, let's leave it at that. A fresh year.
