Locked to Padma Patil.
Hi. Um. I read-
I wanted to tell you-
I'm sorry. I'm so very, very sorry, Padma, I really am and I want you to know- I hope you don't mind, but-
I saw Payod once on the Quidditch pitch; it was a Saturday and the off season and I don't think he knew anyone was watching but anyway he'd got a broom, one of the school brooms, Cleansweep I think but he'd got one from the shed and was flying around the pitch and he was really, really good, I mean, really good for a firstie, I'm sure he would have been on the Hufflepuff team in no time and-
I thought maybe-
I took St George out earlier, and I'd found a ball in the safe house here and finally managed to charm it like a Snitch although it's not as good but it'll do for practice and stuff and anyway- I took it out tonight. And I flew. I flew for as long as I could stand it until the moon had set and I couldn't see.
And that was for Payod.
I hope you don't mind. I tried to say something at the memorial before I went flying but I couldn't make the words come, but that was okay cos I'd already made my tribute. Not a candle. I'll tell you about it if you like, but anyway-
I wanted to say something for Payod, but my voice wouldn't work. So I flew for him instead. Was that okay? I should have asked first, but I guess I don't think about things sometimes and I'm sorry if it wasn't okay, I'll make it up to you somehow.
I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
I hope you're okay. I mean I know you're not, not really, but underneath and all-

Bill's buggered off somewhere else.
Flying in school! In school! Without threat of detention!
I mean there was that once already when I killed my first broom and got Saint George but that doesn't count cos I wasn't meant to and I'm lucky I didn't break my neck but still ohgodhowfun I never thought I'd see the day.
Granted, we're ferrying stuck students from the top floors down, and retrieving personal stuff but still, it's flyinginschool.
And I did take the Saint for a spin around the empty top floor at top speed just cos I couldn't resist and the falcondive down the stairwell wasn't probably a good idea cos I didn't realise one of the Slythies was watching but I don't think they said anything so that's okay.
Oh my god oh Merlin I read the Muggle paper Alexandra Whitter left in the Common Room cos I was bored and I read the whole thing and oh god Bill. It's Bill I know it's Bill shit what the hell happened and what can I do oh fuck-
Locked to Padma Patil
Padma! Paper! Read the Prophet!
Damnit; no not the Prophet- Mail; the Daily Mail; read it! Bill! Muggle hospital!
I can't oh my god someone showed me another person's diary thing on this interweb whatever and oh gods Bill Weasley's in St Mungos someonecutoffhisear I can't it's just I oh my god...!
Owl. I should send an owl. Where is my bloody parchment?!!
Owl to Bill Weasley in hospital.
I, um, I heard, a bit indirectly, about um. The, um. The
ear fact that you're in hospital at the moment and I can't believe it, how bloody awful! Is there anything I can do? I mean I can't do a whole lot, obviously, but maybe some little thing, I don't know, I just feel awful that you're missing that gorgeous earring and is she really your girlfriend, damnit hurt and all.
Please get better soon! Am thinking horrible, wicked thoughts at whoever did this. I am, too. I don't know if it works or not, but it can't hurt to try, yes?
I've my fingers crossed for you
and pls discount all rumours that I'm building Avalon wards in the school.
I'd almost forgotten, with all the- with- with Mr Weasley-
The snake. It was Snape.
Is he an animagus? He must be unregistered if he is and if he isn't how did he become one for Saturday? And leave it to me of course to pick him up and run with him through half a castle and cast a bloody massive ward in front of him and I ought to tell Padma but I promised him I wouldn't say anything not that I had any sodding choice; he's scary is what he is.
....how utterly brilliant.
It wasn't Monilis! I should have known- the eyes were all wrong- but I wasn't paying attention; too busy running over the modifications in my head and making sure I didn't miss anything and it wasn't sodding Monilis but there's nothing I can do about it now, really-
But who was it?
It pointed out a mistake I'd made- minor one, easily fixed, and I patched it after dinner- Monilis would have, too... but it wasn't Monilis.
Oooooh, this is aggravating!
But I've set the wards and Padma's rooms should be safe and I am just ecstatic that I worked out and cast a brand new set of wards- well, not totally new; they're a variant of the Avalon set
that Mr Weasley told me not to cast but I worked out the modifications all on my own and cast it and it was exhausting but so worth it I could totally do this all the time what a rush of magic it felt wonderful...!
Nuu, Brittany. Don't get to liking it too much, you ridiculous little sod.
... but it wasn't Monilis.
What a brilliant project! And it's just landed in my lap, sort of. I love this sort of thing.
The trick, I think, will be getting the right resonance to all the layers- I've never done anything quite this complex, and if Mr Weasley finds out I tried it he'll likely have my hide but still, she asked so nicely and I really can't say no to a project like this.
I have to know I can do it.
It's a modified version of the Avalon wardset, although it doesn't muck about with temporal stasis; only physical. It'll be tricky to key Lovegood to enter but not alter the wards, and Patil to drop or release them... working two wand-signatures into the ward flux... altering the Avalon set without destabilising the entire structure... casting it all just on the bit of space for a door-frame (it's a large ward-set!)... casting it at all (my god so many layers I'll be useless next day I just know it)...
Merlin, what the hell have I got myself into?
I can do it. :D
Does anyone in fourth-term Potions have the notes for the last lesson? I
was daydreaming about this project of mine wasn't paying attention doodled rune-wards all over my notebook accidentally knocked over an inkwell on my notes and can't read any of them. I'll be immensely grateful if someone could share.
Thank you so much!
Stupid brilliant, blinding, bloody sun.
Anyone wants me I'll be out on the pitch. Throwing things.
Headmaster Dumbledore sir I wrote to my Mum and Dad like you asked me to, sir, and sent the Owl off that afternoon and |Mum took her sweet time answering, didn't she I finally got a reply and they're fine with it all, Mum sends her well-wishes to you, sir, and does that mean I can do it, sir? Please?

I have this note, and it's from
Bill William Weasley and he's offered to give me some extra tutelage in Ancient Runes and wards but I need to make sure it's okay with all of you first before he does so if it's not too huge an imposition, could I please get you three to sign this for me so I can send it back to him so I can get on with not blowing up the Common Room maybe expand a little on my classes? I promise it won't interfere with my regular coursework, I won't even look at it until I'm done with the rest of my homework and stuff but it would really really really be a wonderful oppotunity I think and would you mind too terribly much? Only I'm very excited about it all.
