Name: Roger Davies
Gender: Male
Date of birth: 8/20/1978
Year: 7th
House: Ravenclaw
Blood status: Halfblood
Physical characteristics: Roger is on the taller side, at an even six feet, athletically built but more lean and wiry than bulky, with dark hair and blue eyes. He is typically reasonably well-presented and seen with a pleasant countenance, though until initial caffeine intake of the day has occurred, neither sentient nor motile. Nevertheless, he is considered one of the more handsome boys in the school, and seems to attract more than his share of female attention.

Don't fall, just be who you are, it's all that we need in our lives...Collapse )

Well. It's official that there will be no Dementors sent to monitor the school or the environs any time soon, so those who are looking forward to Hogsmeade weekend, the upcoming Quidditch match between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor, and other activities this month need not worry about having to master a Patronus Charm in order to enjoy themselves and keeping them at a distance.

On the other hand, the fact that TEN Death Eaters escaped without incurring any sort of resistance from the above creatures really, really doesn't bode well, does it? So on that note, people who are going to Hogsmeade and all that should probably not do anything foolish. Like, oh, sneak around or be off anywhere they're not supposed to be. Just in case that the increasingly totalitarian nature of the Umbridge regime isn't hint enough that there might be repercussions.

Is she on crack? I don't think I need to specify which 'she'. But fucking hell, is she on crack?!

An A?! A bloody A?! I followed her stupid, irrelevant, illogical and completely bullshit instructions to the letter! And she gave me an A?! All right, it could be worse and she could've failed me, but when others who DEFINITELY didn't take the assignment seriously... argh!!!!! Okay. Crossing it all out. It would be absolutely tactless otherwise.

WHY do I have to be stuck learning NEWT-level DADA from this COW?!!

So, I resurface from NEWT revision and return to the school, only to find that in the class that is supposed to be the most important NEWT for the career choice I'd like to have, I'm supposed to come up with an essay on non-magical, completely irrelevant ways of fending off an attack in Knockturn Alley.

What the fuck? Pardon my language, but what the fuck?

Does she honestly expect us to write three scrolls detailing such things as "I'll start screaming to attract the attention of others who may help me and hope for the best"? Or perhaps "I hope to hell that I have a canister of pepper spray and perhaps a Muggle firearm handy"?

Actually, she probably does. Who wants to brainstorm non-defense, non-magical means of protecting oneself? I get the feeling that she'll flunk anyone who mentions even so much as an Expelliarmus.

Now of course the main point of concern is HOW this has to do with ANYTHING that might possibly be on the NEWT. But then again, that would be searching for LOGIC from HER.

To-Do List, 25 December Evening

1) Dinner with parents, grandparents (on both sides), Uncle Andrew and Aunt Maria (on mum's side) and Uncle Paul and Aunt Therese (on dad's), plus assorted cousins and various of dad's coworkers.

2) Coffee.

3) Adapt information about NEWTs and schooling to Muggle equivalent A-levels and so on to answer questions from everyone.

4) Help wash dishes and conveniently avoid Jacqueline Barrett, the rather crazy and overly enthusiastic daughter of dad's coworker.

5) Get cornered by the above en route to living room.

6) Make excuses, make escape to loo, stay inside until coast is ascertained to be clear.

7) More coffee after dinner, corner Uncle Andrew Williamson (the Auror) and ask numerous questions about NEWTs and the Auror programme.

8) Conversation abruptly cut off as Jacqueline enters.

9) Sigh.

10) More coffee, go over notes and rearrange revision schedule based on new information, now in privacy of own room.

11) Study a few sections for Potions, textbook cunningly disguised as "Chemistry".

12) Abruptly shut "Chemistry" textbook as Jacqueline barges in.

13) Reiterate that she should perhaps go down and socialise with her family, and that her parents would not be pleased to find her stalking conversing with me in my bedroom.

14) Get asked to follow my own advice and socialise with HER.

15) Sigh.

16) Inform her that I'm dating someone from my school, and mentally beg pardon of the powers that be that the fabrication was somewhat necessary if I wanted to be left alone at all.

17) Get pouted at, mentally bash head against wall, contemplate bringing coffeepot up to room and locking door.

18) Bring coffeepot up to room and lock door after making the rounds and exchanging a few pleasantries with everyone.

19) Wrap Angelina's present.

20) Coffee.

21) Study in peace.

Happy Christmas, everyone!

Sweet Rowena...

All right, all right, I realise that there's less than a week before school breaks for hols, and that people may not see each other for a bit of time before school resumes, but for pity's sake, this isn't the separation of Romeo and Juliet!

Wow, I think I just lost about seventy-five percent of my vision. Bloody hell, in such a hurry that a pair of boxers got thrown onto that suit of armour with the red tinsel and there is now a huge puddle of Mrs Scower's spilt in the broom closet? Not to mention the fact that I REALLY REALLY didn't want to see that?

As an FYI, curfew is still what it was all term. Please do not violate it just because you're feeling frisky cheerful that the holidays are coming up. Also, Prefects and Filch shall still patrol the hallways as usual, so please, don't get up to any wild shenanigans unless you want to shock and traumatise undeserving people get in trouble. Thank you.

Hols are coming up in a fortnight. What are everyone's plans?

Hey, it's either that or talk about the mistletoe. Or getting a snog from Ursula Grinnell under the mistletoe. And I'm not sure what to say about that one. I don't REALLY know her that well.

Oh joy. Tonight I'm going to have to supervise detention for Oakby for Yet Another Incident. Here is hoping to hell that he'll just keep his mouth shut for the duration of the experience and NOT tempt me into saying something unprofessional by commenting on any of my female friends.

It is a very strange phenomenon indeed.

Silas looks peeved, Natalie looks smug and has been arriving ON TIME for ALL her Prefect patrols and duties, and in fact has been cheerful enough to offer to pick up some of MY Prefect patrols for the next week and a half so that I can extend Quidditch practice on Thursdays since we've our first game on the 24th.

What's going on?

All right. That's a new low for Umbridge, I'd have to say.

I am, however, thanking any deities out there that no one on my team's liable to start anything in front of her.

What are everyone's plans for this upcoming Hogsmeade weekend?
