Party at the Three Broomsticks - Open to Everyone! [01 Jul 2006|07:39am]

[ mood | bouncy ]

Riley sat at the bar with a glass of vodka on the rocks in her hand waiting for people to show up for the party. She saw herself in the mirror behind the bar and made a mental note of how good she looked in her black low cut shirt and skirt. She had made an honest attempt to look good tonight and it payed off. She wanted to look good in case Sirius stopped in. She missed him so much. She brushed her hair out of her face and took a sip of her drink when she heard the bells at the door go off. She smiled. Someone was here.

[ mood | nostalgic ]

Riley strolled over the grounds of Hogwarts, wrapping her sweater a little tighter around her. It was almost summer, but there was still a bit of a chill hanging in the air. She took in the trees, the castle, the lake, Hagrid's hut, all the place she'd spent the last 7 years taking for granted. In less than a month, this would all be over. She'd have to say goodbye to this place, and to some of the friends she made along the way. She'd miss everything about Hogwarts, the teachers, the grounds, the castle, the students...even Bellatrix. Almost. She smirked to herself at that and sat down on a rock on a little hill. She felt the breeze blow through her hair, and was so lost in her thoughts that she didn't even notice anyone coming up behind her

And so it was confirmed that secrets did not exist at hogwarts. Andi knew her marriage wouldn't stay a secret long. That's why she never chose to lie about it, but rather put off the announcement until she could at least say good bye to her sisters. Bellatrix's owl had arrived only a moment before, and it confirmed what Andi already knew, she was no longer welcome in her own home, or in her own family, but it wasn't as bad as she had thought. At least she had gotten a reply, and at least her mother had tried to help her. She read over the letter one more time as she sat in her dorm. She knew Bella had a heart, and she knew that by marrying Ted she had broken not only Bell'a heart, but Narcissa's and her mother's too. Andi wiped away a few tears as she read the last sentence of the letter. Her sister pitied her, and she pitied her sister because in the end all Andromeda had lost were a few people who'd never really accepted her for who she was while Bellatrix had given up a loyal friend, one who'd loved her despite the bad choices she had made in her life. Though Andromeda would never stop loving Bellatrix she now realized there was no hope for her. Maybe there was still hope left for Narcissa. She quickly folded the letter and tucked it into her trunk before walking down the stairs into the common room and then out to the hall.

Future Death Eater Meeting: OTA [12 May 2006|07:31pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

Alaya was not happy. Firstly, she was walking down towards the dungeons, a place she could not stand to be in, except for classes. Secondly, it was for a secret meeting that would get them all expelled and worse if they were caught. And thirdly, she was freezing cold. With a slight sigh, she reached the first door and opened it quietly. It was deserted.

Taking up a place in the front of the room, Alaya sat and waited for the first to come.

Hogsmede Weekend [10 May 2006|03:33pm]

The next Hogsmede weekend had finally arrived, and Andi had been looking forward to it for days.She pushed her way through the crowd on the way to meet Sybill at her favorite dress shop. She had spent all week trying to barrow a white dress, but the few that she did like didn't fit. She had finally decided that she'd just buy herself and Sybill a new dress on the way to meet Ted. It would be the last thing she spent her parents money on. After today, she'd no longer be a black. She was on her own and she'd no longer be able to waste her money on fashionable over priced clothes. Her hand shook as she pushed open the door to the dress shop and began to quickly look through gowns.

Open To Peter [09 May 2006|11:33am]

Sybill waited patiently in the corner of the library for Peter. It was getting late, but she promised him she would meet him here. She sighed, tucking her legs up to her chin and watched as a little green beetle tottered along the windowsill. She sighed gently and began to tug at the blond hair that had fallen in front of her face. The library was warm, and she relaxed against a book case, her head falling back onto one of the shelves. She looked up at the ceiling. I never noticed that it was that tall before, she thought as she traced the beams in her mind.

OTA! Preferably someone I hadn't RPed with much. Diversity is good, people! ^_^ [08 May 2006|08:12pm]

[ mood | contemplative ]

After becoming bored with the goings on inside the castle, Riley took a walk out onto the grounds. She paused by the lake and pulled out the pack of cigarettes that she had recieved as a birthday gift from one of her coworkers. She lit one of them and took a puff. It was so wonderful to be smoking again. She glanced up at the sky. It was grey again. Of course it was. These are the British Isles, after all. She loved living here, but she would give anything for some bloody sunshine! She was distracted, however, from her reverie when she heard the snap of a twig. She turned her head to see who it was.

Locked to Keara [06 May 2006|02:23am]

[ mood | nervous ]

Riley had just left the Great Hall. She had asked a random Ravenclaw where Keara was and found out that her friend had gone to the hospital wing with nausea and had been feeling ill in the mornings for about a week now. Riley's heart had sunk to her feet and she ran from the Great Hall, leaving a very confused Amos behind asking what was wrong. She stormed into the Hospital Wing and found her friend. She walked over to the girl, praying that her suspicions were wrong.

It was just a few weeks until school was over and Andromeda was getting desperate. The majority of her close friends would be graduating, and moving on with her their lives including Ted, and Sybill. Andi had to do something before it was too late. She couldn't just sit around and wait for her life to fall apart. She walked into the crowded dinning hall and looked around. Standing on her toes, she look over the crowds of people searching for a bit of curly brown hair. Andi was caught off guard when someone bumped into her and she fell forward. She reached out her hands and grabbed into the first person she could find so she wouldn't land on the floor.
"sorry" she mumbled as she looked up to see who she had landed on and more importantly who had knocked her over.

Open To Anyone/Everyone Who Graduates This Year [23 Apr 2006|05:13pm]

Sybill stared out at the setting sun from the ledge of the Owlrey's rooftop and sighed softly. She rarely came out here, but she needed to think, and there was a warm cross breeze up on the roof. She opened up her transfiguration book, a subject she desperately needed to study for her upcoming NEWTs. She blinked back the sun's bright light as it cast golden red hues over the lake and her ears perked up when she heard a couple of voices coming up the stairs. "No peace anywhere," she muttered to herself and burried her nose back into her book. Secretly, however, she wished for the company.

Open To (whaddya know?) James! [17 Apr 2006|05:32pm]

[ mood | depressed ]

Lily was depressed. And that was not often.

The common room was warmed by the enormous crackling fire, and illuminated her face, redrimmed eyes and all.

She had confined herself to her dormitory for most of the week, leaving only for classes. She was genial and perky at mealtimes, sitting with her friends, but she was not a happy girl.

She snuggled deeper into her pajamas, sitting on the couch in the common room, enormous potions book open on her lap, the occasional tear falling onto it's pages. Her dark red hair was tousled, she looked really a mess.

Before this, she would have been horrified to have been seen in her red and gold flannel pajamas, slippers with the gryffindor lions rearing magesticly off of them, and her gryffindor beanie over uncombed locks, but now she really didn't care.

She nestled deeper into the potions book. Studying took her mind off him. James.

OTA [14 Apr 2006|04:17pm]

Andi was sitting in he usual spot at the end of the 7th floor hall where no one ever seemed to go. She had a roll of parchment sitting in front of her and a quill in her hand. The parchment had a few lyrics scribbled on it with lines through them. Andi had intended to write about her life. She had written a few lines about her love for a muggle-born and her engagement to a boy with greasy hair who never seemed to shower, but it all came out as a 'whiny crap' not a real song. What Andi really needed was someone to talk to. She stood up and balled up her roll of parchment, tucking it in her pocket until she could find a trash can to throw it in. She made her way down to the end of the hall and then turned left. Eventually, she squeezed into a crowd of people who were rushing down the hall to dinner. Andi followed the crowd toward the dining hall while looking around for someone, anyone, to talk to.

OTA (Sirius would be cool, but I'm open to RPing with anyone. ^_^) [14 Apr 2006|09:28am]

[ mood | content ]

Riley sighed happily as she made her way down to the lake. She loved being outside. It was so refreshing after a long day of classwork. On top of that, she practically radiated happiness since the day that Sirius Black told her that he loved her. She could barely stop smiling. Upon reaching her destination, she sat down against a tree and looked out across the water. Hogwarts was one of the most beautiful places she'd ever been to, especially this time of year. A slight breeze blew through her hair and she closed her eyes. She was completely relaxed until she heard someone approaching. A jumpy person by nature, her eyes flew open and she was immediately on her guard. She turned, then smiled when she saw who it was.

Open to *gasp* Lily! [11 Apr 2006|11:10pm]

[ mood | creative ]

It was growing dark outside when James Potter finally gave up and threw himself on a common room couch, ready to fall asleep if need be. Lily had never, ever stood him up before, and yet today...she was over an hour late, and James thought he could make a wild guess as to the reason. It was just getting to be too much. James considered himself a rather tolerant boyfriend. He understood Lily's need to get on with her life, and even liked the fact that she was so smart, it was a turn on, and it made him feel proud. But right now...right now ALL Lily did, every free moment, was look through the things he knew she was already completely familiar with.

He was only just beginning to drift off when the portrait hole opened for the first time in over thirty minutes. James didn't even bother looking up. He knew who it was. The sound of her shoes were unmistakable to him at this stage. And her hair still smelled of that nice shampoo she wore...which meant she'd gone off to study with it wet. He felt a surge of irritation and, not being able to think of anything nice to say, simply rolled over on his side and waited for her to come to him.

[ mood | intrigued ]

Severus had found a book. And not just any book, oh no. This was a Book with a capital B, the kind of book girls were not supposed to leave on tables in the library where unsuspecting Slytherins could come across them and pick them up thinking they were innocent Astronomy textbooks.

This book was Scary. Not to mention Disturbing.

This book accused him of being a rubber band, whatever that might be, and all sorts of other strange things.

Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. Hmm. It sounded like the kind of book only Sybill would read, but at the same time...

Severus sat down and looked around furtively, checking that Lucius and Bellatrix were well out of sight. He suspected he was going to regret this, but he Needed To Know.

Library - early evening [30 Mar 2006|05:55pm]

Bellatrix scowled at the parchment in front of her, willing the essay on the importance of Charms safety to write itself. After a scuffle in the hallway yesterday involving a second-year Hufflepuff and a sixth-year Slytherin, Flitwick apparently felt it necessary that all of his students be reminded that his lessons need not be practically applied. At least, not in the halls. She personally thought it served the Puff right to be taught a lesson about running into the upperclassmen, but unfortunately her stuffy teacher was head of Ravenclaw and had that whole sense of 'everything is fair'. BS, in Bella's book. This paper was so not fair. Dipping her quill in the inkpot, she got started as the small clock on Madame Pince's desk announced, "Six-thirty."

She wondered how long she'd have to herself before half of the school was in here doing the exact same thing she was.

[ mood | curious ]

Ted had decided to take Sunday afternoon and go out to the courtyard. It was quiet enough and it gave him somewhere away fromt he common room to sit and think. It was almost spring and the weather was warming up, though it was still cold enough that he had his cloak with him and wrapped around his shoulders. He had a small journal with him as well as a quill and bottle of ink, just chewing idly on the end of the quill. He should have gotten a few sugar quills in Hogsmeade because the feather didn't taste all that wonderful. He was currently attempting to write some sort of poem. Though that feat seemed rather difficult in itself. He was going to send it to Andromeda though. Nothing was good enough though. Not for her. He sighed and tucked the feather in his hair, still staring at the almost blank page.

Private to Remus (Back to Sunday) [14 Mar 2006|09:35pm]

[ mood | happy ]

Elle had just come down the staircase, after making herself look nice for the night. She scanned the common room, but Remus was nowhere to be found. She assumed that he would be either coming in from the portrait hole soon, or coming down the stairs, so she just stood patiently, waiting.
