Another long-expected update. [20 Oct 2003|11:24pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Ahh...I'm afraid many things at Hogwarts have kept me from updating this electronic journal...my secondary pensieve.

Too many things, mostly confidential, I'm afraid, have occured. I mustn't write anything down in case it is intercepted.

I've noticed that others have not had the chance to update their own journals, which is a shame.

Dark times are approaching us even quicker than we would like for them to, but I feel that we are all as ready as we'll ever be.

Ahh...long time no...post! [18 Sep 2003|11:08am]

Well, it has been an interesting year thus far; there are still no direct signs of Cornelius changing sides...

I am growing wearier with every passing day, knowing that there is great evil out there amongst the wizarding world, and the majority of those wizards still do not know, or do not want to believe it.

I have been unsuccessful in getting Dolores to cease with her decrees. If anything, I believe she took great offence to it and is about to create yet another one.

She has also arranged a small party of students to be her ...what was it? Inquisitorial Squad? The poor woman decided that she needed support to back up her ideas, and spent all of last night yelling in my office. She did manage to stir up quite a bit of an event last night-- she even threatened to contact Cornelius then and there to have me removed from the school.

Needless to say, I handled the situation, and she left my office, upset no doubt, but not about to have me taken away from the school. Of course, I will have to remain aware of what she has done to Hogwarts, and what she is still capable of doing in the long run.

Dolores has been 'working her magic' throughout the school, lately. She has been threatening to have me removed from the premises as well...which is starting to anger me in the slightest.

Yes, I've told myself that I would not lose my temper, but this is going on for quite enough. Ah, but I feel that now is not the time to release my temper [though little, it is].

It is quite relieving to see that most of the students only worry about things related to the school, and do not see the dangers that are beyond the great walls of Hogwarts. It shows that though Voldemort has returned, he is not strong enough to induce fear in every student's hearts. I, of course, am worried that sooner or later most of the students will need to learn the entire truth...

But before then, I believe Harry should be the first to know the full truth. It is only fair to him. It still edges at my mind like a sharp razor.

A much needed update. [02 Aug 2003|07:18pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

Ah, I must admit to myself that I do not understand what Cornelius is trying to accomplish with his hiring of Dolores.
Yes, I was well aware of the difficulties in finding a suitable candidate for the Defense Against the Dark Arts position, [despite Severus' keen interest in taking over that class], but that did not mean I would be completely unsuccessful enough that a woman such as she could be considered the position, and ultimately, given it.

Unfortunately for me, as I've been rather busy with the Order and of course, the Dark Lord, I have been unaware that Dolores Umbridge has been made High Inquisitor of Hogwarts very recently. It was, to my dismay, too late to do anything about it as well, as Cornelius so kindly pointed out to me.

But I am quite sure that as long as the rest of the school remained close-knit, even her being so 'high' in power would not do anything to cause our school distress. I am certain that she will be unable to do any harm to the staff or students as long as they realize the truth. The Ministry cannot stop the truth from being revealed, though they do try.

I am, of course, no longer part of the International Confederation of Wizards, nor am I Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot any longer. However, as I have said to Cornelius and the Ministry, as long as they do not take me away from my beloved Chocolate Frogs, I do not mind. *chuckle* Of course, in a more serious matter, as long as I can gain the wizarding world's trust and support in the war that is to come, I do not care that I am fully stripped of all titles. What good will titles be when Voldemort regains full power?

The old noggin stirs in worry. [06 Jul 2003|11:52am]
[ mood | worried ]

I do regret to begin this post on such a worrisome note, however, I feel that there are a few things I must get off my chest...more or less, it is the same news that I've been seeing and hearing throughout the wizarding world.

The times grow darker, still. I feel Voldemort's prescence is closer than ever...it must mean that he is growing stronger. I must keep an even closer watchful eye upon Harry, though I dare not look directly into his eyes yet.

I feel that he is in great danger...though what dangers they are precisely, I do not know. I know the time comes soon when I must tell him everything. That very fact haunts me every waking moment. I've made some terrible old-man mistakes, and I must fix them immediately, as the time draws thin.

The school, I feel, has become one of the central points for the Daily Prophet's headlines; it seems that Fudge still believes I am planning to create an army of my students to ursurp the Minister's position--or rather, in the process of doing such. And at this point, I am ready to believe him myself. Cornelius has closed his eyes to the truth, and because of that, it has driven him to near-madness.

The entire Ministry has been watching me, as I've watched my students--I know, because Umbridge often spoke to me, and spoke of me. No doubt she reports to Cornelius as often as she could, every night perhaps. 'Tis a chaotic year thus far, I think. And the problems are no where near over yet.

Thankfully, I've been able to vent out my worries to this journal, as well as my pensieve. It gives me quite an appetite to indulge myself in a few Chocolate Frogs and Sherbert Lemons. I've not been able to treat myself lately. *chuckles*

Politics and the like are quite difficult to comprehend. [02 Jul 2003|07:21pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Ahh...well, I've not used this journal in a few days, much to my dismay. Then again, I haven't really had long enough to linger in my office either.

I've been busy watching over many things, and many people. I know Sirius grows impatient with me, being trapped in Grimmauld Place as such. But times are darker now, and I feel that Voldemort surely isn't going to sit down and wait until Sirius has had his breath of fresh air. Many wizards still do not realize that Sirius is innocent--they all believe him to be the escaped murderer from Azkaban.

Ah, and speaking of which, Cornelius seems to not have realized that the Dementors no longer obey his commands--or any of the Ministry, for that matter. Yet, I am still the old senile fool.

Well, enough with such dismal affairs, after all it is apparently Mister Draco Malfoy's birthday today. I've seen flyers and such pinned around the school. I do hope that at least he is enjoying his day.

Anyway, I must be getting back to important matters at hand. I've got to get rid of those dreadful pink laces and the like in the staff room as well, as Minerva and Severus have both been having trouble seeing lately.

Ah, and Fawkes calls for my attention.

Hmm... [30 Jun 2003|07:00pm]

Well, lets see. This, having an online journal definitely puts my pensieve to rest, which I've been using for several hundred years now.

Unfortunately, I feel that this year will be much more different. I can even say it may be partly out of my control, although I will try as Headmaster, to keep things as normal as possible.

I met Harry in a rather tight situation a few days ago. He is probably wondering why I didn't talk to him long...well, that will come in due time. I intend to tell him everything he deserves to know, but...I just don't know if I can bring myself to do it. He deserves to know the truth, that I am sure of. However, I wish I could keep him in the innocence that fifteen year old's should feel.

On another note, the Ministry of Magic, and that very humorous Daily Prophet have not ceased to write amusing articles about me being a fool, believing in the words of a young deliquent. I won't give up trying to convince the wizarding world that Voldemort has returned. Cornelius may believe whatever he wants, but it is starting to dwell on my thoughts much more, as the world becomes darker, and Voldemort rises in power.

Cornelius has even sent Dolores Umbridge, a dreadful woman in my opinion (though I dare not say it out loud) to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts this year. No doubt she will only be looking to prove that I am growing more senile every day, but I will continue what I've set out to do, regardless of what she says.
