I spotted a tiny article near the back of the Prophet this morning as I was eating my breakfast. It wouldn't have caught my eye, but it mentioned the Dark Mark. I've never seen one, but from what I've heard, that is the mark of a truly Dark Wizard. But I digress. The Ministry seems a bit on edge about this whole subject, and with just cause. Someone out there is much more powerful than they are and they want them gone. I thought they were supposed to be the highest power in the Wizarding World? If there's someone better and more powerful than an Auror, perhaps I'll change my Career Plan and go with them! I only hope Father is willing to discuss the matter with me; he knows I'm not Andromeda or Narcissa and therefore has always treated me a bit different from them when it comes to these things. I'm craving knowledge; there's so much that the Ministry and the Prophet aren't telling us. That article was so full of holes that I want filled.

Last night was certainly interesting. I think Sirius might be coming to his senses, finally.

Well, I've just returned from a rather exhiliarating evening with my dearest cousin. Sirius, not Regulus. I get to see Regulus every day whether I care to or not. Most of the time, not, but I digress. Seems as though Auntie has been owling Sirius all week, asking him about what I've been telling her on the side. I couldn't quite tell if it shocked him to find out that he was, indeed, an embarassment to our family. He'll always be happy playing the martyr, though, and I suppose that's just where he belongs. I only wish he wouldn't drag Andromeda down with him.
I think he's also dragged out of me what I was afraid to admit to myself. I'm still afraid to admit it, so don't expect any declarations of love from me any time soon.
Through all the insults and proverbial gnashing of teeth, I think it was a rather productive evening. He's agreed to come home on Christmas Day, which is, I think, all the time Auntie needs with him. I'll be with Rodolphus all day (as mother invited him for dinner), so I most likely will never see Sirius. I can't say whether or not I'm disappointed by that. Probably not, though.

Rodolphus Lestrange sent me a bouquet of Roses and Devil's Snare. This means one of two things.
1. He was trying to be kind -yet so deliciously sinister- *sarcasm*
2. He was trying to kill me, kindly.
I'm not stupid enough to touch the stuff. I took it to the Herbology Professor, who screamed and disposed of it while I looked on with a straight face. She wanted to know where I got it, and I told her, "From a secret admirer." She tutted and walked away, muttering, "Some admirer!"
Amusing day, yes.

I swear if I have to listen to another one of Andromeda's self-righteous raves about how wonderful it is to be different from the rest of the family (aside from *hiss* Sirius, and in the worst way possible), I will turn my wand upon myself. She thinks she's better than Narcissa, Regulus, and myself only because she was sorted into a 'house with better morals and values.' [insert dramatic eye-rolling and sighing here].
She's quite possibly the most inane and silliest Black ever produced. How she came from the same loins as I did, I'll never know. Perhaps she was adopted. Perhaps she was left on our doorstep by some scared Muggle family. Yes, that's it... Andromeda isn't one of us! That must be it. [sly grin]. No, I've seen her birthing papers. So much for that dream.
I spent lunch today listening to that utter child
Rodolphus Lestrange go on and on about his quidditch record and how he'd like to smother the Gryffindors next match and especially that Potter boy. Why he feels the need to bore me with such asinine topics such as the competition of boys on broomsticks fighting to catch a tiny gold marble is beyond me. At least he's attractive.( Owl to Narcissa BlackCollapse )

I don't want to talk about it.
I will be the end of my dearest Sirius, if it's the last thing I ever do.

The state of the new Slytherins this year is quite unsettling. There are two boys (Rodolphus and Rabastan's younger brother, and a new boy from a family that's just arrived from Holland) that show real promise, but the others are hopeless.
Narcissa and I have been getting on quite well as of late. Something's changed about her, I haven't put my finger on it yet, though. I will be sure to delve as deeply as possible, though, to find out what it is.

School has started up again. I don't know whether or not to be elated or extremely depressed. The professors, of course, are going to have us starting on NEWT training this year, even though they're not til next.
I don't think I have much to worry about. Intelligence has never been a problem.
I miss Andromeda. I can't tell anyone though. They'd never let me live it down. Damn Ted Tonks and damn his muggle mother. He makes my blood boil with a rage I've not felt before.
