[[Very, very unhackable, except maybe a tiny bit to Harry]]

There was one chance in a hundred that it wouldn't come to this. If it hasn't, no matter -- it soon will. He knows it, whether or not she had the maturity to understand what she's getting herself into. Has he even the slightest conception of the future it will rob her of? The lifestyle adjustment, the legal and social ramifications of undeath in wizarding society -- her friends and family, when the hunger comes upon her--

..yes, and her schoolmates. A vampire in seventh year. Dorming with the children.

If I could resign, wash my hands of the lot of them... they would still be in danger. And then -- what? Set the Fat Friar to watch the necks of his House? -- as it's obvious the Headmaster could give a rat's spleen for their safety....

Blast that impervious old man. It is vile -- criminal. If there is some vast, incomprehensible purpose to this... that's no excuse. The collateral damage is too high.

This coast is unspeakably beautiful. It's been centuries since I came this close to simple nature -- the grey stones, the fine white sand, and a sea that seems to go on forever....

..NO, DAISYA, YOU WILL NOT USE MY SKULL AS A SAND SHOVEL!


[[At the time of this post Bob isn't aware of the mitigating factors involved in what happened to Piper. He's mainly furious at Dumbledore for closing his eyes during the school year to the circumstances that led to the whole situation. I am INSANELY busy today, but will be back for all teh plottage this evening! *waves*]]

..I'm not even surprised anymore.

Class will proceed today as usual.

With one exception. This will give you all an excellent opportunity to practice gender inflection in your translations. Each of you will craft today's ward in the inflection for your original gender, and redraw it for your current one, and see which ward works better for you when you've infused them with magic. It will be interesting to find out whether the effect persists after we all change back if we ever do.

*irritated* Of course Madame Pince didn't notice anything yet. The volumes were borrowed in my name; I could keep them out for months.


All the better to find time to unwind the wards.....

*dark look at the leather volume on the floor under his desk, aware of the malice it radiates even with several books of white wizardry stacked on top of it*

*has obviously been cleaning house -- the lower four shelves of his bookcase are stocked with spare textbooks, and the half-dozen volumes he received as gifts over the last few weeks are neatly lined up on the next shelf, save one book on advanced cantrips and...*

*regards the lurid cover of a rather steamy harlequin paperback and directs the house-elf to place it on the highest shelf, backwards and upside down*

Whoever still needs to take (or retake) the end-of-term exam, please let me know when you are ready. As the term starts next Monday, you would do well to take it a few days beforehand so as to have it off your minds before classes begin again.

Enjoy the remainder of your vacation.

One would think that with so many students away for the holidays, the school would be somewhat less chaotic.

*pauses for mental rimshot*

At any rate, I am gratified to hear that most of you are enjoying your winter break. And for those of you who are not... remember, you'll be back here in less than a month.

*angry muttering* Confound people walking in without looking where they're going! It's been twenty-four hours; where could the beast have gone? *grumbles* Back to the Forbidden Forest, I shouldn't doubt... wretched animal... I suppose I shouldn't have expected it to....

If anybody has seen a tattooed, hairless cat in the castle, kindly bring it back to the first-floor staff room. Thank you.

I hope you've all been working hard on the parameters of your hexagrammatic rune charts. It is time to discuss imbuing these runes -- and even runes you did not write yourself -- with charms and trigger spells to make them magically active.

As you've all had experience working together, our next class sessions will be performed jointly with Professor Robin's class. You will pick a partner from her class, exchange hexagrams, choose a that you have learned this year, imbue the hexagram with the charm, and incorporate a trigger spell that will set it off whenever you desire. For homework, do the same thing to one of your own hexagrams for practice.

..And five points to anybody who finds that cat!


[[Strike not hackable, but mood is obvious to anyone who sees him. Edit: there may be a log for the project, so stay tuned! :D As for Marco, I'm giving him another day or so loose in the castle. Enjoy his ear-splitting greetings!]]
