surrounded by darkness

What would you have for your last meal?

I don't think I would have gotten one. The guards at Azkaban weren't the most forgiving wizards and witches on the face of the earth, that's quite for certain. I did eat, of course, while I was there. Sometimes they would give me quite a bit of food. Other times it would be offered as a reward.

'There's a good lad, tell us what you know...smells good, don't it? Yours, if you tell us what you know. Why did you do it?'

Do you have any idea how delicious things smell when you've spent the last few days locked in a dark cell, surrounded by nothing but damp stone and rotting cloth and other unmentionable things? A baked potato covered in all manners of cheese and butter? Steak with mixed vegetables and garlic sauce, salt, spices? Chocolate?

Like heaven.

I don't think I would have gotten a last meal. They would have never killed me. They didn't want to kill me, they wanted me to suffer.

If I had to choose, it would be chocolate. A whole variety of it. Darks and milks and flavored with all manner of fruits and liqueurs and whites, but just...chocolate. Chocolate milk. Chocolate frogs. Chocolate bunnies that you bite their ears off and they melt in your mouth. Dipping chocolate. Baking chocolate. Hot chocolate. I would just want all of it. Who gives a damn if it makes me ill, because I won't have to deal with it later.

Now I want chocolate.

How do you make a living?

Well right now, the stock market is absolute rubbish.

(This however, is what Time-Turners are for.)

The housing market is in a slump as well, and there are no real sporting events going on that I can gamble on (save the baseball playoffs about to get started in the States, or their college 'football' - though why you call it football when you rarely touch the ball with your foot) but I do have a thing for the horses. Lovely animals. Though no really big stakes until next year...

I've never really needed money. Even after getting kicked out the house (though I did leave, but when you get blasted off the tapestry things get a bit messy when it comes to wills and inheritance, and being in prison didn't help either) I had help from a dear uncle of mine.

But work, honestly work? I haven't had to. I am quite content with living off of things I do in my spare time. I have better things to do with my time than spend it leaning over a desk or stack of papers. Remus is back. Teddy is growing up. Harry is here, with me. We can be a proper family. That's living.

I make it how I want to make it (spending time with those I love) by making up for lost time.

new order rises

theatrical muse prompt # 248 -- 190 words

Would you make a good spy? Why or why not?

Of course I would make a good spy. I'm a wizard and a bloody good one at that. We have at our disposal an arsenal of charms and spells to change our looks and voice, cloaks that can make us invisible, the ability to appear and disappear out of thin air with nothing but a quiet word and flick of the wrist and wand. The Ministry likes to keep us quiet, naturally, as muggles tend to panic when they hear these things, and you get into registration issues and so on but those are a bunch of rubbish.

We are the world behind the world. There are places and things muggles have never seen and never well. We have our ways to watch and listen. But why would we want to harm the balance? We don't. We aren't evil or horrid people. Not all of us anyway. But I digress, I've gone off on a branch from the topic.

Spy. Yes, I would make a good one. But the important part about being a spy is never to reveal all your secrets. And to make sure you have a bit of flair.

note to self:

next time, pick farm without psychopathic shotgun wielding bastard who APPARENTLY doesn't understand that when a big black dog comes prowling he's really just interested in one of your sheep and not his kids.

(i don't eat babies. though suppose the prophet would like to write different these days.)

i got to thinking. war's over. great. people are buried. kids. too many fuckin' kids. families. you know i sat at all those funerals. not me. the grim. s'what we're supposed to do. protect hallowed ground. supposed to protect those kids. i watched them bury my little cousin. i watched them bury moony. i sat at all their damn funerals and i...

i fucked up. should've been there sooner. the kinda fuckin' grim am i.

So I log in and that damn daily question they've always got up pops up, right smack in my face.

Do you miss anyone right now? What past experiences with this person, or these persons, make it easy for you to miss them?

But I'll get to that in a moment.

We took Teddy to the beach the other afternoon. Harry, myself, and Andromeda, and we made sure to take lots of photographs (he's really got his mum's hair), feed the lad his father's favorite type of ice cream (double chocolate), and I had a moment of realization while watching Harry take him out to the edge of the water to stand in the surf bubbles.

I don't want to go into it, really, but it was something that made me think.

Anyways, missing people. I could write a list of names and we'd be here for hours. I think I'll settle for a blanket statement.

I miss the Order.

Why? Because we fought for each other. We stood against the Dark Lord and a great many of us fell but we were there for each other. We were friends. Family, practically. We were the Order of the Phoenix.

Like I said, I could go on. I won't.

On another note, I've no bloody idea what to buy a one year old girl as a birthday gift.

The last one year old I bought something for wasn't exactly your normal tot either, and Oz, I don't think a charmed to go a-bit-faster-than-usual toy broom would be something the little one's mum would appreciate....

jail cell

[After reading this lovely prompt response Sirius felt the need to respond himself. Set after Sirius wakes up and discovers the letter. The Remus mentioned is r_moony and the prompt/letter is visible only to him.]

All the lights on and you are alive, but you can't point the way to your heart. So sublime, when the stars are aligned, but you don't know, you don't know the greatness you are. Cause blue eyes, you are destiny's scene, cause blue eyes, I just wanna be the one...Collapse )
