The Black Star....

i didn't notice me either.

10/31/07 09:34 pm

Ted! I'm making myself a cake for tomorrow. We'll celebrate, have a little party. Perhaps pretend that I'm turning 30 rather than 19. You wouldn't believe all the candy in the house right now, it's horrible.

I shall gain ten pounds. But only as a sacrifice to Nymphadora. She'll do much better without it and in her best interests, I'll eat it for her.

9/27/07 09:35 am

I've had my first class, it's dreadfully boring but that's how it always is, isn't it? You have to get through the book work and lectures before you're ready for the practical work. I'm okay with it. I'm even alright with the fact that I've had homework assigned.

As long as Nymphadora allows me to, I'll finish it before dinner, but who knows. She doesn't much like the babysitter we've found for her, but she will get used to it. It will be fine, I'm very sure.

Now. Homework!

9/16/07 10:36 am - I got it!

Ted! I was accepted! The healer program at the Magical Community Learning Center accepted me! I just got back from my interview and I had to show them that I knew some basic healing spells, things that everyone should know really, but they told me right then, I'm in!

I start in about a month and we should look into getting an every day baby sitter, classes are during the day. I'm thinking of putting out an ad in the Prophet? You know, where they list different jobs, because Merlin knows it can't be a muggle, not with Nymphadora going nuts with her looks like she has lately.

This is going to be so much better than working at Witch Weekly.

Oh, oh... Nymphadora thinks it's fun to turn herself the same pattern as the couch. Bit scary... I should go stop her.

Ted, come home soon! I need to talk more.

8/29/07 11:28 am

I want to say that I make some damn good steak. I really do. Sure, I'm proud of myself, but you didn't try my steak.

Anyway... I'm not going to come back for my last year. I know that it may be a bad choice but I can't drag Nymphadora back to Hogwarts and have no interaction. Not to mention that Ted will miss her terribly. I have a good job, things are going very well for me. There are programs that I can attend if I ever decide to go through with becoming a Healer. So I think I'll be alright.

Speaking of my little beautyCollapse )

I request that everyone take a look in next week's Witch Weekly. We're doing a spread of new styles of dresses and I'm pretty sure that one of my designs is going to be worn!

If you see one of these, it's mine!Collapse )

8/22/07 04:38 pm

PrivateCollapse )

Ted! I have to tell you something! I could easily save ink and tell you when you get here but I can't wait. I'd rather get it out, and this way, I can brag tell everyone else at the same time, so here goes. I was feeding Nymphadora lunch, like usual and giving her the spoon to eat from when she knocks my hand away and took the spoon herself! She wanted to feed herself!

This is so exciting! I'm going to celebrate. Do you like steak? I'm going to make steak. Good steak.

RitaCollapse )

8/15/07 04:48 pm

I can't for the life of me remember if I've already broadcasted this but I have a job!

I'm working at Witch Weekly as a seamstress. They've already given me a few projects for future shoots they want to do which is exciting. I'm only part time so that I can spend time with Nymphadora but I can work at home too and they pay me for that! It's ridiculous.

I get 50 galleons for each outfit I make. 50 bleeding galleons. That's just... outrageous.

The best part! I was chatting with one of the writers and talking about how I always make my own clothes. She agrees that vintage is always in! There's going to be an article on vintage styles in a month or so. Imagine inspiring someone to write an article.

It's all too much.

To top it off, Nymphadora is running now. She scares me a bit because she's just getting the hang of stopping but it's precious. She's so proud of herself.

8/4/07 10:11 pm

Did you know that Witch Weekly has their own seamstresses? I really didn't, never even thought of it. I never even thought that there were jobs for seamstresses.

Who knew?

Anyway, I'm owling them, seeing if they need someone else. How exciting is that? I'll have to make sure that the hours will match with Ted's so that there's someone to watch Nymphadora but even so, if I have a job, maybe I can afford a baby sitter!

Oh man, I'm excited.

It's almost crazy to think of, but if I have a steady job, I may not have to return to Hogwarts. I hate the idea of Nymphadora being stuck there for another year. Am I horrible for even considering it?

In other news, we're really settling in to Ted's apartment. It's really nice, it just needed a bit of a... feminine touch. But I saw to that almost right away.

8/3/07 10:23 pm - The Answer Lies In You

I moved in this Ted yesterday. We spent maybe three hours making everything it's right size again but it was so easy compared to how it could have been. I'm really excited, I mean, I've been at Hogwarts for over a year. Whether I had my own accomodations or not, it's nice to be somewhere else.

Nymphadora knows that there's an outside world now.

You know, I'm coming to terms with things, finally. I'm a blood traitor. And I'm fine with that. Ted is a better person than anyone else I've lived with, blood status doesn't mean anything.

If only everyone could realise that.

7/19/07 02:16 pm

PrivateCollapse )

So I'm almost ready to move. Ted's said that I can help decorate the apartment a bit which is fun. I can't wait to make curtains and pothandles. Maybe that's going a bit overboard but I've never lived anywhere except Hogwarts and the Black Manor.

7/15/07 07:53 pm - Good News

Things are definetly looking up.

Edit: I'm not so sure I even want to have a scroll anymore. Because, you know, when you find out that your daughter's father doesn't remember her name... you just don't want to have anything to do with life anymore. Just thought I'd get that out there.

((Bear with me, I'm not sure what to do with her yet.))

3/6/07 07:35 pm

Nymphadora took a step!!

I'm so excited, I can't wait for her to do something else amazing.

She was just standing against the side of her crib and she tried to come to the other side to see me and she took a step by herself. It was only one but... it was so precious.

I took a picture, of course, what else?

So. I don't quite know what to say, but I'm here and alive.

I was just thinking about forever ago when I beat the shite out of Verita Moretti. Twice. Ahh, good times. That really felt good, let me tell you.

Respond to this anonymously. Tell the truth, I won't know it's you saying it.

1. Give me one hint to your identity.

2. Would you ever kiss me?

3. Name one thing about me that's left an impact on you.

4. Am I good looking?

5. What quality of mine do you like best?

6. What quality of mine do you like least?

7. What do you think will become of me after graduation?

8. What animal do I remind you of?

9. If I were a color, what would I be?

10. Am I a good person?

Ah, Nymphadora is wearing the cutest thing right now. Aww, it's light pink and light yellow together and there's flower people (flowers with faces) on her tummy and she has this little hat that goes with it and she's in a good mood and she looks so cute with it on! So cute!

It's times like these when I'm really proud to say that I had sex without protection.

1/12/07 01:02 pm - Hello hello

So, I'm starting over.

I've been so out of the loop lately, so caught up with everything that I barely have any friends and I've become sort of shy and... Just....

I'm starting over. I'm getting back out there and I'm going to do things again.

There's a fifth year who can't get enough of Nymphadora and I've learned to trust her with her so I took up her offer of babysitting. I have a babysitter. Whenever one is needed.... I have one. So I can do things. Have a life.

That's what I'm going to do.

I want to apologise to everyone, especially Antonin, for being so... bitchy lately. I really want to go back to being the person I used to be, just with more responsibility now.

Oh, and... this needs to be said.



12/20/06 07:47 pm - It's that time of year again.

First... I'm all finished with my shopping. Everything's all set. I can take Nymphadora back now. Yes, I'd really like her back. Cool? Antonin, I'm talking to. But surely... just, you know. I'm sure you have things to and such.

PresentsCollapse )

12/18/06 11:15 am

Private- ChecklistCollapse )

So, I'm off shopping. If I'm needed by anyone (particularly the one who has my baby), I'll be in Hogsmeade. I haven't any sort of clue on what I'm getting for most people so I may be a while.

You know the drill. We've all gone Christmas shopping.

12/15/06 01:06 pm - Almost....

So, since Antonin seems alright with Nymphadora, I'm Christmas shopping. I'm so incredibly late with this, it's terrible. Nevertheless, I don't have the best memory so if I got you a present last year and you remember what it is, I would be most grateful if you informed me of what it was.

Also, do you think it would be cruel if I didn't get Nymphadora much? She's only... well, she'll be six months on the 19th and it's not like she'd know, right? I'm not exactly swimming in galleons. Bad mummy? Or sensible money saving mummy?

12/4/06 06:47 pm

Okay, that's it.

Antonin Dolohov, you are going to be in your daughters life more. A lot. Starting right now. Ish.

You're going to learn to take care of her by yourself, without me there. That's what fathers are supposed to do. They're supposed to know what to do so that when I need a break, I can give her to you and go get drunk with my cousins and actually relax for a second.


11/23/06 07:50 pm

((Yes, Andromeda knows next to nothing about muggle movies but this looked fun so for this post... I'm pretending. Deal with it. <2))

Muggle Things That I Rather EnjoyCollapse )

Guess! ((Even if you're not in character, it's fun. Fucking do it. Please?!?! <2<2<2))

11/21/06 09:47 pm

So there was an alarming ruckus that rose up to me from the common room. Intrigued by such noises, I traveled down the stairs and upon setting foot into the main room of these Ravenclaw dorms, I was met with a nice soggy ball of snow.

What the hell?

I repeat... what the hell?

11/15/06 10:00 pm - Okay, I'll play.

Name 5 simple pleasures that you like most, then pick 5 people to do the same.

1. Finishing a scarf without having to go back and fix any unravellings.

2. Waking up to my baby's laugh as she plays in her crib.

3. The first sip of coffee in the morning when it's just what you need.

4. Knowing that there's someone to turn to if you need them.

5. Being alive and safe.


Therefore... RRRAA!

SuperDuper PrivateCollapse )

I've been going through old stuff and cleaning things out and I came across some photographs from last Halloween. I figured, seeing as it's just over a year ago, I'd share them. -- Edited with one more I found.Collapse )

There you have it.

11/10/06 10:48 pm

So I'm missing out on some sort of plan and I sort of think that it involves Carrows. Carrow? Carrows? I can't keep it straight.

So umm... yeah.

A Few Moments Of Quiet and This is what I spend it on...Collapse )

So I missed Halloween. I'm not too disappointed, there was plenty I had to do anyway.

St Mungos informed us that my baby is a metamorphagus. She will, some day, be able to change her appearance at will but until she has any sort of control over her magic, it'll be sporadic. She's special, she's wonderful... I couldn't love her more.

10/20/06 03:12 pm - Holy Shit.

Fuck! Keep me distracted. Distracted... okay.Collapse )

10/20/06 03:09 pm - Fuck!

Is it normal for a baby to randomly go bald and then randomly change to having her father's eyes, nose and lips? Is this normal? Does this happen?

Fuck! Who's had babies? Who knows what... why? Fuck!

There's something wrong with my baby, isn't there?

10/13/06 06:56 pm - I I I... I just don't know.

It's sort of almost my birthday. I like to let myself think that. I've really neglected updating my scroll. I miss it but I'm so busy... well, I lose things easily. You know... But really, catch me up on anything that's been going on. I've been hearing bits and pieces about a Halloween party?

PrivateCollapse )

9/3/06 08:49 pm

So it's began, my sixth year. It's so weird to not be taking the train back and having to unpack and all. Nymphadora and I are still all settled in, have been since last year. I don't mind being here though, it's as much of a home as I know.

Hopefully I'll be allowed to complete my schooling this year and not have to return for my seventh year. I still need to talk to a few people and it's going to be very difficult but I can do it. I have to do it, my baby needs a life, she needs normalcy.

Anyway, anyone who hasn't seen Nymphadora since the start of summer, you must come visit us. She's grown so much, she's beautiful.

7/20/06 09:40 pm

So... I'd rather like it if you could fill this out for meCollapse )

Speaking of challenges... or riddles...

What always ends everything? .....Collapse )

Here on earth it is true, yesterday is always before today; but there is a place where yesterday always follows today. Where? ....Collapse )

Pronounced as one letter,
And written with three,
Two letters there are,
And two only in me.
I'm double, I'm single,
I'm black, blue, and gray,
I'm read from both ends,
And the same either way.
What am I? ...Collapse )

The man who invented it doesn't want it. The man who bought it doesn't need it. The man who needs it doesn't know it. What is it? ...Collapse )

A certain crime is punishable if attempted but not punishable if committed. What is it? ...Collapse )

And finally...

I never was, am always to be,
No one ever saw me, nor ever will,
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball.
What am I? ...Collapse )


Alright, that's enough of that. I figured someone out there may need a bit of stimulation. Merlin, I know I do.


7/11/06 10:26 pm - Baby Update

Nymphadora isn't sleeping well at night but that's to be expected in newborns. She's absolutely precious. Really, she's such a good baby. She barely cries and she's rarely fussy.

In other news, she was born with a bit of hair but it's fallen out and I've read that that can be normal in babies. I can't get over how beautiful she is. It's crazy how I can love someone so much and I've just only met her.

She has my eyesCollapse )

TedCollapse )

7/5/06 11:07 am - Why Not?

I happen to have a few momentsCollapse )

This is harder than.... something that's very very hard.

7/3/06 10:55 pm

((My baby was born. I'm skipping ahead. Just so you know. K, thanks.))

Merlin's Beard. I've never been in so much pain in my life yet it was all worth it. I have a daughter. I've named her Nymphadora Elera and she's beautiful. She's a month early but she's still perfect. The healers were able to make sure that everything was alright and they think that she has some sort of special magic. It's too early to tell but that could be the reason why I changed so drastically when I was pregnant.

It's a relief to not be carrying about twenty extra pounds. She's so beautiful. I can't even describe. She doesn't open her eyes much yet but when she does, they're a beautiful dark blue that's almost purple at times.

I've been able to go out and get everything that I need for her. Luckily, I've been busy making clothes for her in my downtime and she's the most adorable little thing. Truly. Perhaps it's just because I'm her mother but I'm completely infatuated.

Her First PictureCollapse )

6/26/06 09:39 pm

With this moment of tranquility, I will do my best to report on my current conditions----~~~~`((scribbles))

Right. I'm in labour. Right now.

Yes, it hurts. No more writing now.

6/18/06 08:50 pm - Update, long overdue

PrivateCollapse )

So, I'm staying in the castle for summer holidays. I'm unsure yet what my rooming will be but I'm almost certain that before my sixth year begins, I won't be alone anymore, if you know what I mean.

I haven't been out much lately. I just don't know where to go or what to do. I don't even know what I can do, being so pregnant. My time has been spent making clothes and fixing things for when my baby is born.

Anyway, I'm alright. Nothing seems to be wrong. That's all.

((I was a-wondering, what would everyone think of Meda going into premature labour and having the baby before school ended? It would be weird, her being in the castle with noone there to interact with. I want everyone's opinions, especially Skell and don't feel bad for shutting me down with a bad idea. XD))

5/30/06 07:05 pm - All shall fade

Home is behind
The world ahead
and there are many paths to tread
Through shadow
To the edge of night
All shall fade
All shall fade
Mist and shadow
Cloud and shade
All shall fade
All shall fade.

Owl to Professor DelameCollapse )

Does anyone know the true purpose of honkeyseeds? I was sure that they were an aid to a more successful healing drought but mine didn't seem to come out right. Of course, I completely guessed but our textbooks lead me to believe that there's something else needed that isn't Ministry approved or some such. Gah! Sometimes the magical world pisses me off. Of course, sometimes the muggle world pisses me off. Am I rambling?
