Well, well, well. You have been making use of these, haven't you? Finally got mine working during Transfiguration whilst McGonagall was busy explaining something to some Slytherin half-wit. Thanks, Slytherin half-wit whoever you are, I owe you one. Turned out to be a simple problem actually... which I won't reveal to you here. Trade secrets and all that. In any case, it's working. I can't be bothered to go back and read everything - Fred's been keeping me up to speed on the interesting bits, which I would summarise as: (1) everyone hates Umbridge, even people who pretend not to, and (2) a host of new nicknames have proliferated, most notably 'the pink creature' and 'Stawcett'.

On the first point, I would like to encourage you to feel the hate. Don't fight it. I find thinking of her struggling in a copse of Devil's Snare helps me to sleep at night. I am glad that whatever cock-up led to Slytherins possessing these (Fred blames Ron but then he usually does) did not extend to the Malferret and his posse. I would also like to propose that some creative genius think up a Pink Creature song, and am prepared to offer a prize to the best one. If JD or Graves aren't up for this, I'm sure we could co-opt Peeves.

On the second, can we please think of a new nickname for Leanne, as 'the other pink creature' makes everything confusing. I suggest the indignant hamster. As to Stawcett, why is it that the more obvious something is, the more people seem to feel the need to point it out? We all have eyes and ears. Is it necessary to hassle our esteemed headgirl?

...

Yes it is. Sorry Fawcett, a badge is a badge. You're the enemy now.

Well, just plain "Leanne" works for me, but if you must give me a nickname, how about "The Poodle," "Monkey in a Tutu" or something equally frilly and ridiculous?

Okay, Poodle.

I suggest the angry hampster. It has a better ring to it. Though "Poodle" describes her hair better. I know! The Pink Poodle!

I confess, I thought something along those lines myself. But 'indignant hamster' has too many syllables.

The Pink Poodle is brilliant! Leanne can fight the good fight to reclaim pink.

Oh Georgey Porgey, I'm so glad you've decided to join us.
29th-Oct-2007 11:32 am (UTC)
Join you? I co-invented the things!
29th-Oct-2007 07:07 pm (UTC)
I know, silly. But you weren't joining us in this part of the madness until now. So I'm glad you are.

I'm glad too. I was this close to writing this particular journal off as a lost cause and throwing it at Umbridge's head, but that method of attack lacks the sophistication Forge and I are famous for. Tis a weighty responsibility, a reputation.
30th-Oct-2007 06:35 am (UTC)
Really? I wouldn't know. The only reputation I have is for being sweet and innocent and cuddly heeee. And you know, throwing your journal at Umbridge could have had disastrous results, imagine if it had suddenly started working! Horrors!
30th-Oct-2007 06:10 pm (UTC)
Do you ever feel constrained to be sweet and innocent and cuddly, though? Do you want to rant and rage and hex everyone in sight? I sense a tornado of suppressed anger within.

Oh, she wouldn't have been able to read it if it did. They have very strict notions of ownership, these journals. Okay, I've already said too much now.
30th-Oct-2007 07:45 pm (UTC)
If that were true I certainly wouldn't reveal it in public on the journals now would I? That would defeat the whole point of having the sweet, innocent and cuddly exterior. Stop trying to trick me into an admission, George Weasley.

Ooooooh. Tell me more!!!!

Foiled. Ah well, you know they'll suspect when they find the bodies.

'fraid not. That's your lot.
29th-Oct-2007 11:22 am (UTC)
I'M UP FOR IT! I wonder if we can get Merton to STOP ranting about couples and being apathetic join in.
29th-Oct-2007 11:45 am (UTC)
Excellent, JD! Knew I could count on you.

What rhymes with 'pink creature'?

'Stawcett' has been resolved rather nicely, thank you. Well, very nicely.

Was I ever not the enemy?
29th-Oct-2007 05:06 pm (UTC)
Not officially.
29th-Oct-2007 05:33 pm (UTC)
Hey. These things are pretty clever.
30th-Oct-2007 01:01 am (UTC)
Why, thankyou. Clever is as clever does.
