My team, j'adore so verying much!

Hogwarts, it was so nice to beat play against you once more!

[Beauxbȃtons - en français]

I love YOU ALL and I love when we BEAT THEM and I love QUIDDITCH!!!!

Thank you for being my most wonderful team and my friends. I could not ask for better or be more proud that you are mine.

I do not even care at ALL what silly lies the magazine writes. They cannot stop us winning!


There shall be a party tonight and you are all invited and everything is the wonderfullest!


Come and kiss me.

[Private - in het Nederlands]

I am SO HAPPY! It was so easy for everyone to write us off in the beginning but I knew, I just KNEW we had more in us! And now Hogwarts has never beaten us, not once, and I played a much better game today. I'm maybe still not as far ahead as I'd like to be, but I have another year before I finish school, another year to improve for scouts and be good enough to get onto Seb's team a team. And I will. I WILL.

I LOVE EVERYTHING AND ALL OF YOU ALWAYS.

Since I'm avoiding my transfig homework a bit restless I started jotting down thoughts about the last game and our next one to share with Anais, but then I figured maybe it would be more helpful to get everyone's perspective and see what we noted or might have missed.

Both keepers improved from their previous efforts, but we still have the best keeper in this competition. Don't start gloating now, Aidan.

Corrie keeps getting injured, do we go after her as an easy target or focus on the other two that can clearly do damage without her?

I think Salem's seeker was maybe a bit overwhelmed but if she stays in the starting position and settles into it I don't think we'll be able to take advantage of it.

We'll need to keep an eye on James at all times, he hasn't missed yet and to me that makes him our biggest threat. What do you guys think?


The game of this weekend was well played from both teams. Congratulations Durmstrang!

I am glad the weather is at least a little warmer now. I am wanting to swim again but not yet, I think. It is still the season for being inside reading stories by the fire and bothering team mates.

Because I miss the sun the way it is at home I am giving pictures of how it looks in the light in summer.

Wave your wands! )

Ik weet niet of dit van u, maar hoe dan ook je moet komen en met mij te delen.

--I do not know if this was from you, but either way you should come and share with me.


Dank je wel, Sinterklaas, voor al mijn cadeaus! Ik kan niet wachten om uw dag te vieren!

--Thank you, Sinterklaas, for all my gifts! I cannot wait to celebrate your day! [OOC - anyone can read this in their native language by waving their wands over the text]

Sinterklaas has come early, I must have been a very good girl!

[Private, in Dutch]

Just maybe not good enough. Didi has his Seven, Alphonse is realising he likes Eloise, Dex is with her Corbin, even. And I am all alone. Maybe Corbin is right and I am not to be happy because of last year. No one has even asked me to be their date for this gala, and I will not whine about this loudly on my journal so someone will feel sorry for me like Hogwarts girls. I do not need a date to be fabulous and have fun. It only would be nice, to be asked to something. To maybe be liked because I am Dani and not be talked about because I am foreign or busty or blonde or whatever else is wrong with me this week.

I'm so tired.

Tired of people here talking always and tired of being different and of everything being strange and tired of people thinking we are wrong for not being so familiar with their language and their ways.

I'm tired of people telling me what to do.

I'm tired of losing.

I want to be home already.

Nous avons été fantastiques jusqu'à Bexton et doit essayer d'être, je suis fier de nous. Et la prochaine partie, nous allons leur montrer toutes.


J'ai besoin de tout le vin. S'il vous plaît. Maintenant.

Et si vous les biscuits entre eux ont quitté.


Congratulations, Salem! You were good to play against, and should be proud, as I am of my darling team too.

Nov. 5th, 2011


I am very much looking forward to see Hogwarts play Salem! It shall be very interesting good to see how our hosts and our furthest competitors play their games.

I will have lovely snacks to watch the game with, my Maman sent me many delicious things from home. French and Dutch pastries, of course, though no macarons this time! Sadly also no bread, I miss that quite a lot about home. There is banketstaaf and pain au chocolat and one of my very favourites, Paris–Brest.

[Lucy & James]

If you would like to come and share some with me, that would be very lovely?


I spoke to

How do you feel for the portfolio you are to do? Is there a way I can help at all?


Merci beaucoup pour aller à la balle avec moi. Votre costume était génial! J'ai eu un très bon moment, je suis si heureux vous aimez les dragons! Sont-ils eux-mêmes se comporter? Mine dort beaucoup. Je pense qu'il se fatigue facilement d'être si peu.


Good luck against Hogwarts!

[Eddie, Corrie & James]

Good luck against Salem!

[Dex & Didi]

James dit que je suis belle. Deux fois. Et il est doux, mais ça veut dire qu'il m'aime? Il est agréable d'avoir un ami - est-il de vouloir être plus que cela? Je ne sais pas si je veux qu'il soit plus que cela ou peut-être que je vais être très stupide et penser à ce beaucoup plus que je dois et il est seulement d'être gentil, je ne sais pas.

Je ne veux pas de bouleverser un ami à nouveau comme l'an dernier. Julien et Aidan ont encore rien dit à moi.

Oct. 23rd, 2011


Congratulations, Durmstrang! I am very proud to have played against a team with so much of skill and determination!

I am proud also of my team mates, who played excellemment.

I should read the article now.


Good game! I have two bruises because of you.


Een briljante hit en onze zoeker was verdwenen. Ik ben zo erg onder de indruk. Uw intensiteit is inspirerend.


Désolé Are you ok? Réveillez-vous encore? Comment vous sentez-vous?


Vous voyez? Maintenant, je dois porter du noir pour le deuil.


Vous avez été magnifiques. Toute l'équipe professionnelle serait tuer pour que vous avez. Je suis tellement fière que tu es mon coéquipier, mon capitaine et mon ami!


Comment vous sentez-vous maintenant, ma chérie?


Huit sauve? Xavier vous étiez MERVEILLEUX!


J'aurais préféré gagner, bien sûr, mais je suis content de la façon dont j'ai joué. Pour la plupart. Ne pas obtenir le Cognard qui a frappé Anaïs n'était pas assez bon et c'est quelque chose je dois travailler pour empêcher cela se reproduise. Pourtant, nous avons fait un tel effort de bonne contre eux. J'espère que tout le monde continue avec le bon esprit sportif jusqu'à présent. Nous pouvons avoir perdu, mais ne se rend pas! Je suis heureux pour cela. Et maintenant il est temps pour le chocolat.

[OOC: Let's pretend I posted this before the BB practice while I blame timezones for making me forget, okay?]

Est-ce quelqu'un d'autre nerveuse sujet de l'entrevue après l'entraînement? Il rend tout sentiment sérieux dans une autre sorte de façon. Non pas que je pense que le tournoi n'est pas grave, mais ... il se sent comme plus de pression, peut-être? Que faire si je dis quelque chose de mal?

Since I do not wish to speak of you all seeing me

The first visit to Hogsmeade is soon! Hogwarts, what is your favourite thing to do there? What is best to see and not to miss?

I have watched the sunset over the lake many times this week, even though it is cold. Hogwarts is very beautiful in the light like this. Beauxbȃtons has much light most of the time, you see.


Je souhaite réserver l'emplacement pour la pratique sans entraîneur de Marat après le dîner un soir, quand c'est le bon moment? Ou serait le week-end sera meilleur?

Il serait agréable d'avoir une chance de simplement voler ensemble, oui?


Thank you for going flying with me on Sunday. It was much better to not think of things.

Bonjour, mes amis!

I am thinking Hogwarts will be a fascinating place to spend the year, but so cold! Has Scotland met the sun? They should be introduced, I am sure they would be great friends. I am very glad no one has said we must eat haggis. As long as there are still croissants! Without them I shall surely wither. Or get very grumpy and smack things with my bat, which might not be very ladylike but is very affective.

What do you all know about the Multicultural Relations class? I think they could be extremely interesting. A good chance to learn more about each other than just food. Which is very important, of course, and French is the best.

Since I don’t want to write one thousand words, I shall give you all a picture of me instead, so you know who I am when our carriage lands.

Wave your wands, s’il vous plait? )

Alors beaucoup de gens ici ont des parents qui ont joué de Quidditch! Peut-être que je vais attendre jusqu'à après They've m'a vu jouer pour leur dire que je n'ai jamais vu un manche à balai qui pouvait voler jusqu'à ce que je 11.

Ce sera la même chose qu'être juste à Beauxbȃtons, je suis donc à ne pas manquer Maman et Papa et mes frères, pas plus que la normale. À côté, j'ai beaucoup raté mes amis! Il sera ainsi beaucoup de nouveaux à faire, je l'espère. Et je passe une année entière Marshall avec Dex et de jouer contre de très bonnes équipes. Didi a raison, il s'agit d'une aventure pour nous. Je suis très fier d'être dans le premier Tournoi Junior International de Quidditch.

So many people here have parents who have played Quidditch! Perhaps I’ll wait till after they’ve seen me play to tell them I never saw a broomstick that could fly until I was 11.

It will be just the same as being at Beauxbȃtons, so I am not to miss Maman and Papa and my brothers any more than normal. Besides, I have very much missed my friends! There will be so many new ones to make, I hope. And I shall spend a whole year with Dex and playing against very good teams. Didi is right, this is such an adventure for us. I am very proud to be in the first Junior International Quidditch Tournament.
