The Victory Party

November 3rd, 2007 (07:55 pm)

current location: Hogwarts, the Common Room
current mood: restless
current song: Heart Racing

We arrive in the common room and everyone is still shouting. It's easy to get caught up in the excitement. Anthony still has the Snitch and starts to play with it, Caley is being surrounded by well wishers, and Euan is talking animatedly with Jimmy.

"You know you only won cause Slytherin didn't play for your boyfriend."

The smile falls from my face as I turn around.Collapse )

Gryffindor vs. Slytherin

November 3rd, 2007 (07:47 pm)

current location: Hogwarts, the Quidditch Pitch
current mood: anxious
current song: The Crowd

The morning has flown by. One minute we were at breakfast, and I was trying to get Caley to eat, the next we are making our way down to the pitch and to the locker rooms. I toss my robes over my head, make sure my hair is securely pulled back, and walk into the room where the rest of the team is waiting.

I go over the game plan one more time.Collapse )

Hogsmeade Weekend

October 27th, 2007 (03:57 pm)

current location: Hogsmeade
current mood: content
current song: Us Laughing

"Are you ready?" Ann-Marie huffs.

The girl is seriously getting on my nerves today. She woke up the whole dormroom this morning at 5am wanting us to get ready. Um, no. I don't even make the team get up that early when we have practise.

She's also upset that Bethany is coming with us.Collapse )

A Talk with Dennis

October 19th, 2007 (04:01 pm)

current location: Hogwarts, Girl's Locker Room
current mood: contemplative
current song: My Thoughts

I stay out on the pitch as the rest of the team goes to the locker room to change. It's been another long practice, but with the first game two weeks away I'm pushing the team hard.

I glance up at the stands and see Dennis sitting alone. I think back to the conversation that I had with Caley yesterday. She won't admit it, but I know she likes him. Making up my mind to talk to Dennis as well, I mount my broom and fly up to where he is sitting. As I land, he gives me a small smile.

"Hi, Natalie," he says looking up at me then glancing back down to the pitch.

"Hey," I say smiling back. "Practicing commentating?" I ask him, sitting down.

"I was a bit," he admits, the tips of his ears turning a bit red, but it fades quickly. "But it won't be hard," he answers. "I can't wait to say Gryffindor wins the Cup this year," he grins.

Him and me both.Collapse )

Girl Talk with Caley

October 18th, 2007 (01:57 pm)
current location: Hogwarts, Quidditch Pitch
current song: The Team Chattering

I walk into the dorm and see Caley sitting on her bed. She's so lost in thought that she doesn't hear me come in.


She glances over when she hears her name. "Hi, Nat," she smiles a little. That's not like her. Usually she is very bubbly.

I put my bag down on the bed and look at her. "What's wrong? You look like you lost your best friend."

"Apparently I didn't because you're right here," she replies, smiling to show she is joking.

I don't buy it however.Collapse )

My 17th Birthday

October 10th, 2007 (10:14 pm)

current location: secret room
current mood: happy
current song: Mal

I can't believe that I am of age. Surreal almost.

This morning at breakfast Mum, Dad and Kat sent me gifts with Legolas. I received a heirloom necklace from Mum and Dad that was my Gran's. It's passed down from mother to youngest daughter when they become of age, and since I am of age in the wizarding world, Mum went ahead and gave it to me.

Kat sent me a stuffed cat and a note.

Natbug,Collapse )

Girl Talk

October 5th, 2007 (11:47 pm)

current location: Dorm Room
current mood: giddy
current song: Talking and Giggling

It's Friday, homework is done, and Caley and I have just finished a long practise. As we walk into our dorm room to put up our brooms away I see Ann-Marie and Bethany sitting on their beds talking. They stop when they see us.

"How was practice?" Ann-Marie asks as Caley and I walk over to our trunks.

"It was good," I tell them. She usually don't care about Quidditch.

"Want to join us?" Bethany asks looking over at us. I've always liked Bethany, and Ann-Marie has gotten better the last couple of weeks.

I glance over at Caley and we have a silent communication.Collapse )

Evening Flights and Talks

October 1st, 2007 (06:32 pm)

current location: Hogwarts, the Quidditch Pitch
current mood: worried
current song: Talking with Mal

I fly up and over, practicing some moves I had the Chasers do yesterday at practice.

With the first game in a month, I'm anxious to prove I made the right choice in who I picked for the team. With my best friend on the team and the first game against my boyfriend, I feel like I have a lot to prove...the game against Slytherin is going to be the hardest I've ever played.

I pick up speed on my broom and round the post.Collapse )

Potions Class

September 24th, 2007 (10:59 pm)

current location: Potion's Class
current mood: accomplished
current song: Cauldron bubbiling

I make my way down the stair case into the dungeons with Caley and Dennis. We're the only Sixth Year Gryffindors that signed up for N.E.W.T level potions.

"Wonder what we'll have to make today," I ask wrinkling my nose at the thought.

"Hopefully something useful," Caley answers. "We're never going to use half of this once we're out school," she makes a face. Read more...Collapse )

Desktops and House Tables

September 17th, 2007 (07:41 pm)

current location: Common Room
current mood: indescribable
current song: Chatter

I swear, between trying to figure out these Runes and the glares from Gwen, I am getting a headache. She has not forgiven me for putting Caley on the team over her. She's made snide remarks all weekend to both of us.

Professor Babbling holds up a card, bringing my attention back to class. Read more...Collapse )
