Square one

Lyrics by Tom Petty

Had to find some higher ground
Had some fear to get around
you can’t say what you don’t know
later on won’t work no more

Last time through I hid my tracks
Saw what I could not get back
Yeah my way was hard to find
Can’t sell yourself a piece of mind

Square one my slate is clear
Rest your head on my dear
It took a world of trouble
It took a world of tears
It took a long time
To get back here

Tried so hard to stand alone
Struggled to see past my nose
Always had more dogs than bones
I could never wear those clothes

It’s a dark victory
You won and you also lost
Told us you were satisfied
But it never came across

Square one my slate is clear
Rest your head on my dear
It took a world of trouble
It took a world of tears
It took a long time
To get back here

If the past few years have taught me anything,Collapse )

“Master Apprentice Longbottom?”



Oh, it’s this dream. I like this one. This is the one where I help first year certification students who think I know something about growing tropical plants and flowers in harsh climates.

10th-Oct-2006 08:10 pm - The Promise
The candles flicker and sputter in the warm breeze as the waves lap onto the shore, leaving frothy fans of lacy foam as they recede. I glance around, making sure that there aren’t any Muggles (or anyone for that matter) on this crescent-shaped, sheltered area of the beach and then bend down and enchant the candles so that they won’t blow out. It’s a little spell that Oliver showed me.

9th-Oct-2006 06:52 pm - Where I Have Always Belonged
If someone had told me a few days ago when we headed to Greece after our wayward men that Lavender and Oliver would be getting married, I would have thought them crazy.

I do.Collapse )
4th-Oct-2006 09:36 pm - My Siblings
I have finally returned to my flat feeling that life has dealt me too many blows this week.  I find myself unable to feel anything more than the great shock that my life will never be as I once hoped.  Stunned would be an accurate description. Read more...Collapse )
3rd-Oct-2006 02:37 pm - Family for Life
I've been discharged. After hearing, 'Pigaine ton stin pteryga 49', I didn't think I'd ever see the outside of a mind healing ward again. I take my rucksack that miraculously is still intact and make my way down to Oliver and Dean's room.

28th-Sep-2006 12:07 am - Getting Our Due
I shift uncomfortably and try to readjust myself in this tiny bed that’s as hard as an eight-hundred year old petrified troll head.

27th-Sep-2006 10:06 pm - Stop! You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!
I wake up as sunlight steams across my bed. I stretch lazily and open my eyes...eye It all comes back to me like a flood when one eye remains darkened. I reach up to feel a patch that I vaguely remember getting.

I sit up and look around.Collapse )
25th-Sep-2006 01:50 am - Just a Little Longer
don't mess with me
I fall onto my knees depositing Oliver as gently as my sore muscles will allow. Lavender and Susan have Padma and Dean beside them. We don’t want to do any more magic than necessary around this place because we don’t know if Hera’s phantoms would be attracted to it and we don’t know if there is a barrier between the living world we now stand in and the dead staleness within the cave of Ideon Andron. If those creatures of early evil have leave to pursue us beyond the hidden exit, we are done for. None of us has the strength to continue the fight.

23rd-Sep-2006 11:40 pm - The Last Apple of Hesperides
I never knew I could run this fast. Its amazing what being scared for your life can do for your stamina. Even my wet robes don’t seem to be slowing me down, but the further we go the harder it gets to breathe and the more frantic I start to feel.

24th-Sep-2006 01:25 am - The Goddess
Dean and Padma are still trapped in the garden. When Lavender, Susan, Oliver and I finally had to give up trying to take the wall down to get to them, we could hear Death Eaters on the other side as well. If Dean and Padma make it out of there alive, it will be a miracle fit for future myths and legends.

“Do I dare ask?” Justin huffs, his breath visible in the frigid air. “But are we there yet?”

24th-Sep-2006 12:35 am - Hell hath no fury...

Sorry for such short notice, but I’ve gone to look into Art Schools. I would have told you sooner if I had known about the opportunity before today. I’ll be back soon, don’t worry about me.

24th-Sep-2006 12:12 am - Manipulation
Mulciber evil eyes
Not only have I been relegated to the degrading duty of reconnaissance, but I’ve been forced to keep company for the last fortnight with the two reactionary fools, Alecto and Amycus, who are nothing more than brainstems holding wands. However, now I am to stand by and allow this Szabo to claim this Horcrux as his own? Lucius is even more delusional that I gave him credit for if he truly believes that will happen.

23rd-Sep-2006 11:39 pm - Not To Dwell
I land with a soft thud under the weeping willows of Hampstead Heath. The bristly tendril branches with their soft leaves brush against my face as I close my eyes before daring to look over at the Macmillan family cemetery. The headstones barely glimmer in the dull light of early evening. The sun has not yet set and the moon has not risen, so the evening is like me right now: no sense of direction but a direct sense of what I need to do after I leave here.

22nd-Sep-2006 02:23 pm - Truths and Secrets
I can’t remember the last time I was this nervous before going out with Dean. We’re going out to a nice dinner tonight, his suggestion. He hardly ever suggests we go out, especially somewhere nice. I think he likes to go out as much as the next bloke, but that isn’t saying much. While this is unusual, it isn’t what has me nervous. Read more...Collapse )
21st-Sep-2006 01:16 am - Sex on the beach
Our honeymoon is probably one of the shortest on record but it’s not because the proverbial honeymoon is over. Last night, this morning, this afternoon and this evening proved that. In between we found time to...eat and sleep. The truth is, we haven’t left our tiny little cottage on the beach on the Atlantic Ocean in Newfoundland Canada. Because Susan and I are both Order members the cozy fireplace here at the cottage was hooked to the Floo but Godzilla himself had better be stampeding the Queen if someone dare uses it to summon us back.

16th-Sep-2006 01:58 pm - Lost and Found
I woke up early this morning, which was pretty amazing considering the last couple of days I have had. With Susan's wedding and taking care of two tiny babies; things have been rather hectic. Heading to the nursery, I first check on the twins, who are sleeping soundly, and then head to Darcy's crib. She's gone!

15th-Sep-2006 01:14 am - A crowded park
When Susan goes to the cemetery to visit the resting spots of her parents, she always goes alone. I have offered in the past but I never push. Once I even stood before their headstones and introduced myself. It was the weirdest one- sided conversation I’ve ever had and for me, that’s going some. Read more...Collapse )
14th-Sep-2006 11:19 pm - Justin and Susan: Our Wedding
weddings and funerals
Ever since I proposed to Susan and told her I wanted nothing else for my birthday than her hand in marriage, she has held me to an agreement that my heart made when she'd said yes but that my body has rebelled against and regretted ever since. I stand beside Ron, Oliver, Dean and Wayne, my best friends in the whole world pacing with anticipation of holding her body against mine again tonight. I think back to Susan's twinkling eyes and mischievous __expression as she roped me into believing that if from that day on until our wedding night, we practised abstinence we'd build up such intense desire that the honeymoon night would be as if we were two virgins again...Yeah, right, I'm not John Lennon and Susan definitely isn't Yoko Ono and no matter how that song goes, there's no going back!

The look on Justin’s face is priceless as we lead him from the alley where Olga configured the Portkey to drop us and onto bustling mass of humanity that is Los Vegas Boulevard. We knew that making this little jaunt a surprise would be the best way to go, otherwise we probably wouldn’t have been able to get Justin through the kilt fitting without him jumping around in anticipation and inadvertently hurting himself.

12th-Sep-2006 09:11 pm - Pretty In Plaid
It’s kind of ironic, really. We blokes hate shopping with a passion and would rather be doing almost anything else at the moment but here we stand about to do just that to find some dress clothes for the wedding. What a bloke will do for love...matching accessories. I’ve never worn accessories in my life! Read more...Collapse )
12th-Sep-2006 08:33 pm - Fit for a Princess
content, content2
Lavender and I Apparate in a secluded Apparation Point and make my way to Justin’s grandparents manor.

As we round the corner and come up on the entrance, Lavender gasp. “Oh my,” she says. “I knew Justin came from a wealthy family, but I never imagined they were royalty.”

“Minor royalty,” I correct turning red. “Justin hates it, and to be honest I do too.” Read more...Collapse )
9th-Sep-2006 02:13 pm - Wimbourne's First Quidditch Match
My alarm clock rings, waking me from a pleasant dream about Hermione. I still do dream about her, though not nearly as much as I once did. I’ve begun to accept that she really is in love with that Weasley muffinhead, and she’s going to have his baby. I still do not know what they see in each other, but I do not think that I am alone in that regard.Read more...Collapse )
