Sometimes it's really hard keeping promises, especially when certain circumstances beg for you to break them.

But I'm concentrating on school. It's only a day away! I'm really excited, even if I'm not Head Boy. It will be nice to be able to see everyone all the time again. Well, not everyone, literally...

I've managed to book my second apparation test for the Winter Holidays. I still don't know how Hannah finally passed and I didn't. I think she must have given me something! I wasn't aware of any magic abnormalities that could go from person to person like that though... but I think it's worth investigating. Because honestly, there is no logical reason for my failing.

Oh well, at least one of us can do it. I think I've gotten to see more of Hannah in the two weeks she's had her licenses that I ever did throughout the rest of the summer.

Well, I was right about one thing. I didn’t need a second in my duel with Zacharias. Not because I won- as I didn’t. But because I’ve been wrong all along. Funny, these things. In retrospect, I should have seen it before this happened. It took a good hexing for me realise it… but when your actions end you up on the wrong side of a wand… it’s a real wake up call.

I guess I was just too obsessed with being right that my perception of reality went right out the window.

I was wrong about a lot of things. I know its old news, but I owe an apology to Zacharias for the way the I treated him last year. Susan, too. As well as everyone else that was involved in… well, whatever it was you were doing. I was jealous and felt left out. I’m not trying to excuse my behaviour but I thought everyone deserved an explanation even if it’s not a very good one. There was no Hufflepuff conspiracy. Even Adalia deserves one from me. I wasn’t being a very good friend when I tried to get her involved in that. I guess I just wanted someone on ‘my side’.

I’ve not represented my house very well to my other peers, either. Some of that stemmed from my lack of loyalty. Or rather, my displaced loyalty. I see now that the only person I was being loyal too recently was myself and my own agenda. I should have trusted your judgement, Zacharias, when you chose to date Aury. Because that’s what friends do. I hope that one day I might be able to reclaim that title.

Aury, I apologise. I was wrong. I was generalising and believed that you were just as bigoted and narrow-minded as Malfoy. The funny thing is… I was doing exactly what I was accusing you of.

As for Entwhistle and Su-Li… well… I know I’m right. There is something between you. No amount of hexing is going to make me recant that. Because it’s true. I was wrong in the things I said, though. From now on I’m just not going to worry about it. It’s not my business… I’ll leave the investigating up to Rita because she does a far better job at it than I ever could. Besides, I have more important things to be doing with my time, anyway. Like promoting Hufflepuff events to strengthen the unity of our house- which will be a change considering my actions had the opposite effect.

I see now that Professor Dumbledore made a wise choice when he didn’t choose me as Head Boy. I clearly wouldn’t have been able to handle it in a correct fashion. …but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with the choice that he did make.

And by the way Zacharias, you make a great quidditch captain.

Maybe Hitwizard isn't the right career path for me... [11 Aug 2004|11:30pm]
[ mood | smug ]

I think I'd make a better writer, actually. Or investigative journalist. I'm brilliant when it comes to uncovering things. Like Goldstein. I've said for years that he is a prick and others are just now realising how right I've always been. Honestly. As if there was every any doubt.

And now I'm going to uncover the dastardly deeds of the Ravenclaw house in general. Maybe people will listen the first time, this time.


Jiggling, bouncing, swaying, swinging
Breasts float freely, released from their cage
Turpin leads the others in waiting for the worshiping
The male Claws are delighted with such a wage

Heaving bosoms have always caught Kevin’s eye
Taking their bickering a step forward is their glee
So Su-Li does a kinky trick with his house tie
Bondage gets him up better, she has learned is the key

A big gold digger describes Goldstein quite well
His interest in Aura only surfaced after her interview
Getting into the pants of a female must be his living hell
Before she digs her grave deeper perhaps she’ll get a clue

Licentious; why hasn’t the hat sung about this trait?
Such a dirty secret, the houses deserve to be warned about
Any whom come in contact with them may fall to a nasty fate
So from the rooftops, it we shall willingly shout.

The promiscuous nature of the Claws is truly unsettling
Hopefully someone can put a stop to their meddling.

To whom it may concern- (Re: Zacharias' girlfriend and Entwhistle's heaving bosoms)

I, Ernest Macmillian, am NOT the cowardly poster. I, Ernest Macmillian, have no fear of anyone or anything. I, Ernest Macmillian, have no need to hide for any reason. I, Ernest Macmillian, am always right and therefore will always want you too know it. I, Ernest Macmillian, will kindly thank you to stop assuming that I am the spineless idiot- because you're wrong.

I, Ernest Macmillian, have no motives for attempting such a conspiracy (which I still have yet to discover the purpose of in the first place). I, Ernest Macmillian, will thank Su-Li to keep her hands busy with Entwhistle's trousers- as that way she cannot falsely accuse me of anything. The same goes for Zacharias' girlfriend.

I, Ernest Macmillian, am only that: Ernest Macmillian.

The new trends in hair are disturbing. It's a conspiracy to force us all into change! That French girl looks like a boy now! I bet she did that so she could sneak into the boy's toilets! But I have news for her. It won't work one me! I can see past her tricks and will be keeping a close eye on her once we all get back to school. I don't know why she'd bother though. Su-Li's boyfriend is the only one who'd be interested and she clearly doesn't want to speak to him right now. Honestly though, trying to strip us of our virtue by doing such a thing! She's French though... and everyone knows they're loose.

Then there is Brown. Who, quite frankly, shouldn't have gone brown. Pride in your family name is one thing... but that's taking it just a little too far. There is NOTHING wrong with being a blonde! Unless you're a Malfoy, because then everything is wrong with you. Blondes have more fun anyway. Not too mention we're all prettier too. Hmph. I can't believe she'd be so openly against her roots like that! It's wrong.

I hope that no one else decides to follow into their footsteps!!

I've been home for a few days now. It's really nice to just lay in bed and be treated like that prince that I am. Leg still hurts something fierce, so I simply cannot walk on it. Dad has completely taken over cooking, as mum's just gotten weirder, so my breakfast-in-bed this morning was burnt. Such is life.

I've read some really disturbing things on here lately. I simply cannot believe what Zacharias is doing! Honestly. I think he's the one being brain-washed now. Funny how the tables turn like that. But that's not as bad as having read somewhere that there is some girl possibly interested in GOLDSTEIN. Hmph. Poor bird has no idea does she? Someone really ought to warn her. That flake is nothing but a stealing, lying, nasty predator. I pity the girl... especially since I've also heard some other things lately. I've finally realised why he was so insistent on dating my Hannah. It wasn't to date Hannah. It was to get close to me! I'm rather disturbed. How he could ever think that I would be into something like that... And how could he do that to Hannah!? Using her like that. I'm going to settle this score. You better choose your second, Goldstein.

18 days until my test!

Wayne has yet to progress from boy child to man. His existence is a petty drunkard one. A brutal beast that needs to be put down before all of society is maimed.

I'm in bloody St. Mungos. This is nothing but a testimony to all I have previously suspected him of. A menace to society. Putting good and righteous people like me in the hospital for the mere twisted and sick gain of pleasure that he gets from such a sadistic act of brutality.

It HURTS. They almost had to cut my leg off! At least he has a black eye... but that is nothing compared to the fact he almost killed me. If I were seventeen, I'd be pressing charges of attempted-murder! I wouldn't be surprised if he tries to finish me off in the middle of the night this year. At least now everyone can see him for what he truly is. A Monster.

Now if only that nurse would come back. I need a glass of water... and a sponge bath.


...and Adalia? Where DID my trousers go?

This is blasphemy!!!! It's a conspiracy. I KNOW that Goldstein abducted the letters. I'm sure he enlisted the help of UFOs!!! ...or something. This was a mistake! I demand a recount, recount the hanging chads, I should have won.

Hmph.

Goldstein, if you know what's good for you, you'll decline the position. There is only one person who is right for the job! ME.

By the way...

Hannah broke up with Wayne.

Hannah broke up with Wayne. Mum's going berserk with cleaning the house lately. And cooking. She always seems to be in the kitchen. She offered me a jalapeno pretzel with cinnamon sugar on it today... I'm rather scared. Who in the world would find that appealing? Dad turned his nose up at it too. Hannah broke up with Wayne. But dinner was even worse than that. Fried frog legs smothered in peanut butter and topped with salsa. Needless to say, dad and I ventured out. As in out in the Muggle world. We tried to walk through McRonalds. They have windows on the side. But they refused to serve us! How rude is that?! Hannah broke up with Wayne. They said they'd only give us food if we came in or got a car. Dad tried to get into one of the cars that wasn't moving. It was locked. Honestly. Muggle transportation is horrible! We didn't get any food though, because we forget to get muggle money. I'm going to starve to death before the week's over. Hannah broke up with Wayne. I think mum's found an alien cult and started a conspiracy with them to try brainwashing dad and I to eat repulsive food. It's hardly working. Hannah broke up with Wayne. Of course, I doubt that’s the real cause of the problem. But I AM sure some sort of conspiracy is going on. I’ll find out soon.

At least I've been able to get my holiday homework done. It keeps me occupied so that I don't dwell on how hungry I am.

Oh. Not that it's a big deal or anything... but Hannah broke up with Wayne. Pity.

It's not right really, to let others of my year get their tests while I'm held back for another month! Honestly! As if I couldn't handle it just as well - or better than - any of the rest of you. I'm a prefect after all. That has to count for something. Responsibility is my middle name. You know, I've solved so many mysteries and uncovered so many conspiracies, it's only right that I should be allowed to get my license now. But no. They simply insist on my turning seventeen first. This is age discrimination! I'm in the same year as everyone else! Hmph. I'll be writing them about this. One owl a day until they see the grievous errors of their ways. More if I find them to be particularly stubborn.

This is an outrage, really, I don't see why more of the public hasn't had an outcry about this issue. Injustice at it's worst!

Zacharias, he's the one,
Whooped them rears by the ton!
Saved dear Susan from her captor's hands
and showed up all of Potter's previous shames.
So who do you call when you need some sort of hero?
Why Mister Smith, of course! Not some Potter-zero.

Out smarting Lucius Malfoy's plot,
Zacharias can save you from any wicked lot!

[ mood | stressed ]

None of the letters I've written to the ministry officials, nor the numerous talks I've had with Professor Sprout, have resulted in any kind of action to have our missing Hufflepuff found.

It is distressing. I cannot believe that Susan has been taken. No matter what I've said about her in the past, that does not mean I condone what has happened- contrary to what some might believe. Nor I do think that Zacharias was the cause for her capture. I was not there when she was taken... but I have heard the stories. It seems that my appointment as a prefect means nothing in the face of such an event. I have failed in my duties to protect my fellow students and for that I'm sorry.

Rita is right.

So I'll just say it...

The poetry was NOT for Zacharias. It was for LISA. Okay. Happy?

Now leave me alone about it.

THAT WAS NOT AMUSING!

I do not appreciate being turned into a bleeding flamingo! Whose bright idea was that!? How dare you! How dare anyone have that audacity to do that to me! Ernest Macmillian! I'm a PREFECT! You don't turn prefects into FLAMINGOS! If I ever find out who the culprit is- you can be sure you're life is over as you know it!

50 points from Hufflepuff for DRINKING. 50 points from Hufflepuff for unruly behaviour. 20 points from Zacharias Smith for staring at me and NOT DOING ANYHING ABOUT MY STATE!! 75 points from Hufflepuff for turning me into a Flamingo!

15 points TO Adalia for reversing it. Thank you.

[ mood | hopeful ]

I, Ernest Macmillian, did not write poetry for you-know-who. He stole it. And he doesn't know how to do Ancient Runes! So why am I stuck with him for a tutor? It doesn't make any sense! I was better off without him. Hmph.

Hufflepuff lost twenty points this week. I really hate taking points from my house... but some people just don't know what it is to be a badger. Apparently these two second years thought it would be okay to tell on each other! Of course, you should always do the right thing... but doing so as a way to 'stab each other's back' should never be included as a reason for it. Hufflepuff is about loyalty.

I don't think anyone here is loyal anymore. We seem to all be falling apart. Surely I'm not the only one who has noticed? Where is our virtue going? Helga Hufflepuff never intended us to be so split. I don't like it. It gives me a bad feeling... if we can't be loyal to one another, who can? I wouldn't be surprised if something bad happens since we're going against our roots.

It needs to be fixed.

The Top Ten Reasons on why Ernest Macmillian ought to be Head Boy next year:

1. Because he’s Ernie. That’s enough in and of itself.
2. Ron Weasley isn’t a good candidate. He never enforces his authority.
2. Draco Malfoy wouldn’t do. That tosser poisoned the school!
3. Anthony Goldstein is in a conspiracy with other Ravenclaws (and Parvati) to attempt eradicating Hufflepuffs.
4. I’m the best choice.
5. I’m dedicated to service to this school!
6. Hufflepuff hasn’t had a Head Boy in a few years. It’s about time.
7. Who else is there? Honestly!
8. I’ll protect the school from conspiracies.
9. And the French
10. Because I’m Ernie Macmillian!

I wrote this poem to emphasise my strong beliefs in this subject:

Ernie Macmillian will always save the day
Despite the conspiracies, come what may
He protects the weak, the poor, the scared
The relief over this is by all shared
Weasley doesn’t know the meaning of responsibility
And there are serious questions about Malfoy’s ability
Goldstein is obviously involved in foursomes galore
Such a high standing position shouldn’t be placed on a whore
So who is there left standing always in the end?
Why it’s Ernie Macmillian, just around the bend!

So now you know why he is the only man for the job
Ernie’s the best when it comes to controlling the mob!

I wasn't completely wrong, you know. Just because it wasn't Zacharias - THIS TIME - doesn't mean he's not up to something! I KNOW that he is.

It was Wayne. Wayne helped. He admitted it! Professor Lupin seems to agree with me! Did you see his comment too? I am right this time. Hannah, I hope you're reading everything about this. It's not right for you to be with someone who is working with the likes of Malfoy.

...oh! I have to go the library now! I'm LATE.

HE is everywhere. How are you doing that? You're everywhere! I have to keep my eyes shut. He's all over. Everywhere I look. He is there. There are more than one of him. He is cloning himself! I told you. I told you all! HE is doing things. Now he's duplicated himself! You didn't believe me.

HE is even in the prefect's bathroom. How did you find out the password? Go away. Leave me alone!

It's all starting to become more and more clear to me. I'm really beginning to see exactly what this conspiracy is.

Non-existent armies.

That's what they're making! They can't be seen except by the person they're tormenting! It all makes so much sense now. The sinister goings-on in Hufflepuff are becoming transparent... but I don't understand the why.

Why would you do that? Apparently you've lost the virtue for which you were sorted into this house.

As soon as I have solid proof, you can be sure that I'll be turning it all in the ministry so that you can be properly dealt with.

As for now- everyone be careful, especially you Hannah. Evil is abound.

Hufflepuff vs Slytherin [29 Apr 2004|10:41pm]
[ mood | creative ]

Hufflepuff is going to win
Fair and square without any sin
Our two chasers really know their game
They'll make Slytherin cry out in loosing pain
Bludgers will soar with massive power
the other team will fall down and cower
Our Keeper can block all their lousy shots
They'll quickly fall behind by lots
When it comes to seeking, we'll also beat them there
Because Malfoy is too busy playing with his plastered hair

Hufflepuff is number one
So watch out! You'd better run.
