PEEVES!! Come back here with th

*mad laughter, ZAP, howling, a few char marks*

Eeeeheheheheh! Wicked ghostie, putting electric wards on a pretty book like this! How can we make it nicer? I know -- with a dunk in the lake!<3

[[Bob's in the front hall, but can't get outside the castle. Somebody save his journal? XD]]

Spencer happened to be walking through the front hall towards his office when he saw Bob staring outside in a panic.

"Hey Bob... what's going on?"

[always here to help LOL]

*frustrated sigh, points at the giant front doors* Peeves. He seems to think my journal could do with a dunk in the lake.

Spencer sighed.

"I'm not really sure why Peeves still resides here..."

He pulled out his wand and pointed it in the direction of the lake.

"Accio journal."

"He's like a fungus; even the Headmaster can't get rid of him."

There was a wail from the waterside, and Bob's journal hurtled back up the slope and through the doors.

"That must be one exceedingly powerful poltergeist."

He stared down at Bob's soaking wet journal. Spencer waved his wand and a steam of hot air flowed from the end of it, in an attempt to dry Bob's journal.

"Just a stubborn one. True poltergeists have several distinctive differences from ghosts, and the Spirit Division tends to concentrate its energies on the dead rather than the unliving. -- That should do it; I'm obliged to you."

A string of curses filtered in from the outside, and Bob glanced at the door and half smiled. "If you shut that, he'll have to go round the back and might find something else to distract him."

He flicked his wand and the door closed.

"Admittedly I'm not as up on ghosts and spirits as I should be. I should perhaps try to find some books in the library."

He glanced up at Bob.

"I was quite scared of ghosts when I was a child."

"You? Really?" Spencer certainly hadn't shown signs of a phobia before.

"Yes... I hadn't ever actually seen a ghost in person before I came to school here. I wasn't quite prepared for them. The Bloody Baron especially used to frighten me. I used to run from him whenever I saw him. Even the Grey Lady was scary, though I got more used to her because she seemed to follow me a lot, especially as I got older. It was very odd. She never spoke to me, and of course I was too frightened to say anything to her either. At that point it wasn't so much because she was a ghost... more because she was a girl."

He laughed slightly.

[oh homeboy has phobias.. he's afraid of the dark! XD]

maybe when he retrieves it?

Is everything all right?

sure! ^^

..Yes, thank you. Professor Reid was kind enough to retrieve my journal from Peeves's tender care, so everything's fine now.

Date: 2010-07-26 01:25 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I see. I'm glad that everything is okay. Although if it's not too forward to ask, who is Peeves?

Date: 2010-07-26 01:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
You haven't run into Peeves yet? Well, you have been lucky. He's our resident poltergeist: comes with the building. If you've seen a wizened little squirt in obscenely loud dress hovering about and cackling and possibly dropping eggs in your hair, that's him.

Come to think of it, he's been too quiet lately. We were about due for a breakout.

Date: 2010-07-26 01:38 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I-- I haven't come across anything of the sort. Perhaps I am lucky. And you... did just say 'him' and 'dress' in the same sentence as if he's wearing one, correct?

I-- see. My apologizes for you becoming the target of this 'outbreak' even though there's nothing I can actually apologize for.

Date: 2010-07-26 01:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Extremely lucky! -- Oh.... in my day, 'dress' was a generic term meaning 'clothing'; it's survived as 'fancy dress', but the usage is a bit archaic.

*awwww.* Nothing at all. But the sentiment is appreciated all the same.

Date: 2010-07-26 01:57 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh... all right. I understand it now. But I will keep an eye out for him.

Is your journal the other thing that has suffered?

Date: 2010-07-26 02:02 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Good idea.

Thus far -- I can't vouch for the rest of the castle, of course. Mr. Filch might find some reasons to fret when he returns from his weekend.

Mr. Filch? I feel as if I should know who you're speaking of.

From: [identity profile]
Caretaker, somewhat grizzled?

[[I've just been kind of assuming that Filch and Peeves are in the castle as usual, NPCs like Dumbledore.]]

I find it strange that I haven't come across some of these people. Although, I do have to admit most times I keep to myself.

{Sounds good to me}

Well, Filch is easy to miss if you don't dirty up his floors. I'm surprised you haven't run across Peeves, though. He tends to get everywhere; that's why my office and classroom are warded against poltergeists. That was a job of work, I can tell you.

Date: 2010-07-27 03:24 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I can imagine. I'm surprised as well considering all the things you've mentioned. Perhaps, I'll do something about it when I return. I did show up late in the school year.

Good luck. An extra mind or two on the problem is always welcome.

How have your journeys treated you so far?

Date: 2010-07-27 03:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Thank you.

Well enough. I can't complain.

Well, I hope the rest of your summer is pleasant.

Thank you. I really hope it will be as well. I really do.

*aw. can guess some of what's on her mind from what he saw in Thobari's journal, but... it's not his place to pry... just also hopes things work out*

[ Enter a white wolf. Or a white wolf with distinct red markings and a floating, flaming mirror on her back. She tilts her head before writing in the air. ]

Did you get something stolen?

Date: 2010-07-26 07:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
*oh my; now there's something one doesn't see every day. Bob isn't even sure whether this wolf is alive or not; it's definitely quite a powerful being.*

Good afternoon to you. I did, but it's been returned now, so no harm done.

*intrigued more than worried -- she's clearly not a werewolf, yet perfectly conversant in English (though he'll be happy to use letters if, like Tarzan, she doesn't understand the spoken word), she can write in the air, and there's something about her that he feels he should recognize...*

[[He was not pure of heart when alive, and whether he is now depends on what kind of purity one is talking about... XD; I think at this stage he doesn't see the markings, but might grow to later on?]]

That's good to hear.

[ Amaterasu barks happily. She would have loved to catch the thief, but oh well. ]

Those journals are really convenient, aren't they?

[[That sounds good! The more you believe, the more you see~]]

From: [identity profile]
*nods. maybe next time!~*

*hmmm, not acting like an ordinary wolf -- there's certainly a live mind in there, one well versed with human life*

Indeed! Even for such as myself -- there's a hover charm so mine can follow me about. I am Professor Bainbridge, by the way. If it's not too bold, who might you be?

Date: 2010-07-26 05:57 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh, a hover charm, that's a good idea... [ she tilts her head, considering it. ]

[ Wagging her tail. ] It's nice to meet you, Professor. My name is Amaterasu.

Date: 2010-07-27 03:06 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yes, it helps.

*bows slightly, brows raising in surprise* Likewise, I'm sure. Amaterasu? Like the old Japanese legend? *has heard of it in his research, but never in much detail*

The one and only :)

[ Yes, she drew a smiley face. ]

Date: 2010-07-27 07:01 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
..Oh. Well, this is indeed an honor. What brings you all the way here? *will be checking up on his legends asap!*

The family I watch over moved to England some time ago. They donated my statue to Hogwarts, since I'd heard a lot about it and wanted to see for myself.

But please, don't worry about it. Outside of my age, I'm not very different from you.
