Did you hear? The shoop search party was seen in the Forbidden Forest! The first and second years were talking about it. I don't know which one but it's still good news, right? I thought they were dead or captured?

trevorishiding: (Trevor)
On the one hand, Tom is a lot less likely to go randomly destroying things.

On the other, he's definetly treating the other three sheep like his own little troop now.

I'm about ready to just leave him there... maybe I'll ask thier leader if he can be adopted? Am I adjusting too easily to the idea of a whole new sentient species hiding in Hogwarts?

But then there's the Forest... and I'm still curious what's happened to those shrubs. Though at least they haven't shown back up demanding Megan. One battle with those things was enough.

Also I have this feeling I haven't been paying enough attention to what's happening around me. Maybe try catching up with the journals.. much nicer than actually asking someone to tell me what's going on.

Mailed off first thing in the morning before classes, while he mutters, "I don't believe I'm doing this." under his breath, looking thoroughly miserable.

How to respond to ...this it's got to be a hint, right?

Don't be an idiot of course it's a hint I can only look like an idiot if it isn't right? And that hasn't killed me yet.

Maybe... I'll just pretend I haven't noticed? And hope that she's surprised?

I haven't got a clue what I'm doing.

Um... can I ask you for some advice?

I don't know if you remember the little Bulstrode girl, Eunice? The one who kept following me when we were there?

She started owling me after we got back to school. And I was trying to be... um, discouraging? But without hurting her feelings. I thought it had worked, or maybe she'd forgotten about me, because I stopped getting owls.

And now this. *attached is Eunice's letter*

I don't know what to do anymore. How do I get her to stop owling me?

Only the second time this year i've been caught in that one trick stair. This time it wasn't... um, entirely my fault? I was trying to catch Fern and Sharon - a couple of my sheep, who'd gone and grabbed some of my notes.

Didn't realize until i'd gotten back that Tom wasn't with them, and I ought to have known better. He was flying about the Fat Lady when I got back, which means he got out. I have no idea where he might have gone.

If anything turns up missing or half eaten or anything, i'm sorry?

Other than this, and still studying, I'm about bored out of my mind. I actually miss people talking while i'm trying to read, and I have a feeling i'll end up regretting admitting that? I know once we're actually back at school, it'll be just as annoying as it always was.

Wanted to update this thing, but now I'm just staring at it. I can't think of anything interesting. Just worrying about sheep and what they'll do when we get back to school, and Arcadia and what could she possibly have done.

And me worrying about it won't help anything. Almost wish I were back at school, then maybe I'd have had an idea what she was up to.

Though that still wouldn't help, probably.
trevorishiding: (Default)
When we get back to school and if someone notices I haven't updated this thing in awhile... hmm. Not sure what to finish that with.

Um... Christmas hols went well, everything was very peaceful. And I've finally got my apparition license, a couple of days before Chirstmas! I remember thinking I should make a post about that, but I was so exhausted I went straight to bed that night. Waited until Chirstmas morning to let Gran know. By Apparating downstairs.

Got me a bit of a lecture, actually, but I could tell for once she didn't mean it. Hard to believe that sort of thing when the person lecturing you is smiling. Aunt Enid and Uncle Algie were there, too, and everyone got along pretty well.

Odd thing about my sheep - the really troublesome one, Tom? Doesn't behave half so badly when he's got something to occupy his time. Like harrasing House Elves...

Um... I'm going to be in real trouble if he keeps this up at school, aren't I?

Okay, not thinking about that until it happens.

But I am looking forward to the Ball tonight!

Seems like everytime I forget to write something in this, I end up forgetting near forever.

The cat carriers Tracey and I charmed worked out fine for getting my sheep home. And that's when the trouble started.

Tessy is never going to forgive me for the sheep. Never. I've been getting at least one lecture a day about how 'Master should not make such noisy messy creatures' and I should have left them at Hogwarts, and on and on... and that's just from Tessy. I tried to tell her, I didn't make them, but I don't think she cares all that much who made them.

Gran thought they were cute at first, but... well. When she caught Tom and Sharon climbing about in her closet, eating things...

Fortunately, some sheep-related distraction keeps coming up, and I can make my escape? The problem, of course, is that 'sheep-related distraction' equals 'Tom has tried to eat something important, or old, or organized the other sheep into getting into something. At least they've been warded out of the kitchens, now.

Can't believe I'm missing school this much.
trevorishiding: (Trevor)
Haven't really been updated this thing in forever, have I? Umm... let's see, three guesses as to why and none of them involve recurring problems of mine?

Like where I put my spare quill, which if anyone has seen it, I think maybe I left in it the Common Common Room? Maybe. Not sure...

Tom ate the last one. Which makes a total of five quills, two pairs of socks and an attempt to eat a library book, that I remember offhand.

I could swear he's started eating things just to annoy to me, not because he thinks they're food in the slightest.

Trying to catch up on the journal project, now that I've found the thing, and saw this quiz that seemed interesting.

you are seagreen

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.

I don't know, does that fit? Maybe I'll take it again later, and see if it comes out any different.

I saw the Phrophet.

I don't know what to say except I'm sorry. and what the bloddy hell they were thinking I don't know, because nobody deserves that, it

If there's anything I can do, I will. I know there probably isn't, but. I had to at least say.

It's too quiet in Gryffindor, all of a sudden. Wish I knew of something I could do to help Lavender. But I don't know of a thing except to sit there looking uncomfortable and feeling guilty.

Wish I knew what I was going to do with these bloody sheep. Especially since Tom's still trying to get out and I swear he's trying to head for the Forest every time he does it.

Maybe if I sleep on it.

And actually start making public entries again, though I don't expect people will be surprised to find out I'd lost my computer.

One sign, looking as if it were scrawled a little too quickly. It is sitting next to one of the more comfortable chairs near the fireplace and reads:

Warning, one of my sheep has lodged himself overhead, won't come down! - Have gone to get food to bribe him down, will be back soon!

You know something? When you're trying to get a shoop to come down from a tiny little alcove near the roof and it's looking at you like you're a moron. And that's the same expression its brothers and sisters are giving you?

They've gotten way too intelligent. It's becoming a bit creepy, actually. At least Linden seems sympathetic when the others are being pains in the arse uncooperative.

Arcadia? Have any of your sheep Maybe you've seen sheep behaving in this disturbingly intelligent fashion? And, if by any chance you had, could you maybe help me here?

Tom still won't come down. Stupid winged shoop that won't listen! Why won't he listen? And why does he keep making for that bloody window?

Editing this: To say that I have gotten him down; don't let him out of that cage, anyone!

Between schoolwork and sheep it's a wonder I haven't died of exhaustion.

I only remembered I hadn't updated my journal in ages because I had to rescue the laptop from Tom. Now my laptop has the tiniest bite-mark on the edge. At least he doesn't seem to have reached any important part of it. And yes, they all have names now, Tom is the flying one.

They are going to drive me insane. I'm about ready to hand all of them (except Linden) over to Arcadia.

Only i'm beginning to wonder, between odd comments she has made here and there, and observing my own...

Has anybody else noticed them... well, getting smarter? And developing clearer personalities? Tom is like a bloody cat, he has to get into everything and Sharon is all the time sleeping, and so on. Linden I swear thinks he is a toad. Lately he's begun timing his bleating to match Trevor's croaks. I have to cast silencing charms on them when it's time to sleep, and Linden gives me this look just as if i've interrupted a conversation.

Or it's possible I have spent entirely too much time studying the sheep and I'm imagining all of this. I'm tired enough at the moment that I couldn't tell.

Also, Nathan? I just realised I never thanked you for the potion, which was a lifesaver, as i'm at least not dealing with magically powered sheep. Except Tom's wings, but they were alreay there, and now i'm getting sidetracked again.

Thank you, Nathan!

I wish I could back to bed, instead of classes, and not think about the fact that we have no idea what the sheep life-span will be.

When I went to bed, I had a shoop; when I woke up, there were sheep.

And I thought, after Arcadia warned us about this, that I'd made sure there was no loose paper where Linden could reach it!

I think he learned how to climb, because he'd been following Trevor, and got into my bookbag. I mean, with the shoop sitting in there, quite calm, watching its.. um, brothers and sisters? The other ones are running about the floor. Eating everything. Again, I'm sorry for whatever might have been eaten my shoop sheep - one of them looks like it's growing wings. Right. Nathan, do you still have any of that de-magicking potion for the sheep? Or if not, could you make some? Please? I think this may have happened once before already, what with Harry having seen another blue shoop, and hopefully the potion stop them 'popping' as well as fire-breathing and such. Please help?

Wait - Harry, what did happen to that shoop?

But what to do with them right now? I have classes.... Hmmm. No time really, and I don't want them getting loose... Have to leave them in the dorm, with the door charmed shut. I mean, they're hardly big enough to push it open, right? Hopefully, I will be able to come back with a nice potion for them, at some point. And then figure out what to do with them.

And even though I'm getting a bit worried, they're still cute. I think one of the 'popped' sheep keeps the personality of the original shoop. At least, the one in my bookbag isn't showing any signs of magic, and when I took him out of there, he went straight to Trevor. ...I think Linden the second will just keep staying in the same pocket as Trevor, then.
