Strategies and Plans

July 25th, 2006 (11:01 pm)

current location: Puddlemere Stadium
current mood: contemplative

I wake up and marvel in the warmth snuggled up close to me before opening my eyes. I look at Lavender and she's more beautiful to me like this than any other moment I've ever seen her.

Reaching up to softly move the hair out of her face, I see the sweet, innocent expression on her face. It's as if she doesn't have a care in the world. I'd give anything if I could keep that look on her face all the time.

Telling Wayne

July 6th, 2006 (02:01 pm)

current location: The Oasis
current mood: sad
current song: Lavender's Even Breathing

It feels like I only went to sleep moments ago. I look over to the clock and try to remember what time I finally made it bed. My memories of last night come rolling back like the Hogwarts Express.


Last night I did one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. It was something I've never done before and never want to do again. I had to tell Wayne that Hannah, the witch he loved, was dead.

current location: France
current mood: frustrated
current song: Running Water

I touch down on the pitch after another gruesome practice. I'm so tired and ache all over. It's all I can do to make it to the change rooms for a nice relaxing shower.

Distances Apart

June 27th, 2006 (10:13 pm)

current mood: lonely
current song: Rambling of teammates

Today was our first full day of practice in France as the English National Team. I haven't trained this long or hard in a long time. Everything is different here. It's not just the obvious stuff like the food and language. It's the feelings here. The game itself has a completely different energy about it here. That's why we're here to practice before I first Cup game on Saturday.

Coincidences or Not

May 14th, 2006 (11:42 pm)
pissed off

current location: St Mungo's, Lavender's Room
current mood: pissed off
current song: Blood Boiling

It's been two weeks and two days since the attack on Phoenix House and since Lavender fell into a coma. I miss her so much. Everyday it gets harder for me to keep the hope of her full recovery.

Visits and Propositions

April 30th, 2006 (10:49 am)

current location: St Mungo's, Lavander's room
current mood: sad
current song: Signs

Justin just left and didn't say where he was going but I suspect he's off to see Susan. I gather up a heavy bag of baby items I'll need to take Liam out for the day. I had envisioned our first outing as father and son to be to the park or somewhere like that, not to a hospital but...

Rules and Regulations

April 28th, 2006 (10:59 pm)

current mood: numb
current song: Hospital monitor beeps

I get to St Mungo's and run in as fast as I can with the children. The desk nurse sees us and our grimy clothes and the bubblehead charms still on the Liam and Kaylee. She makes some kind of announcement then runs over asking what happened. I tell them of the attack at Phoenix House and the fire.

Suddenly medical personnel are running everywhere and asking me all sorts of questions about Liam and Kaylee's medical histories. I don't know this stuff. Just help them!

Rude Awakenings

April 4th, 2006 (11:14 pm)

current mood: sleepy
current song: Liam's soft breathing

I didn't think we'd ever get away from Phoenix house tonight. It's my first overnight trip with Liam and I'm really excited about it. Liam seems to be too but that also could be from the chocolate frogs I let him have as soon as we got out from under Susan's watchful eye.

Can life get any better?

April 3rd, 2006 (12:22 pm)

current mood: content
current song: sounds of memories past

I realize as soon as I wake that I have to hurry to get to Quidditch practice. I groan as I sit up and feel the aches and pains from all those weeks of not working out or practicing. There was probably something I could have done to help stay in shape a little so I didn't have to hurt so much now. Nest time, which I hope there isn't a next time, I'll know to keep up some kind of exercising.

March 4th, 2006 (10:31 am)

I'm visiting Justin today. It's the first chance I've had since hearing he was alive.

I see Katie Bell as I'm entering the familiar hallways and ask her how Ron and Justin are. She tells me they are stable but non-responsive. Katie also says it is good for Justin to hear familiar voices. No one is sure if he hears or not but it would be good for him if he does.

Long Week

February 24th, 2006 (12:32 am)

It has been one of those weeks. The kind where you want to run away and change your name. The kind of week that has you questioning your every move and word. When you wonder if it's worth it and deep down, you believe it's not. That's the week I've had.

All My Fault

February 15th, 2006 (12:50 pm)

current mood: numb
current song: silence of being alone again

The pain has become so unbearable that I've completely stopped my workout routines.

I noticed it when I was dressing for dinner Monday night. The pain was so intense my chest felt like it was on fire. Deciding it was a pulled muscle, I tried to move gingerly and forgo any more workouts until it was better.

A Tale of Two Dates

February 11th, 2006 (04:01 pm)

current mood: thoughtful
current song: inner thoughts

Last night was very interesting. That's the only word I can think of for the whole evening. What started as a planned date to get to know someone ended up being two dates and a new date of convenience.

Offers and Invitations

February 8th, 2006 (01:29 pm)

current mood: excited
current song: The rapid thumping of excitment

This is going to be a bad day. All the signs are pointing in that direction.

A summons arrived requesting my presence with the team management scheduled for this afternoon. I hope it's not to discuss my performance in the game on Saturday against the Wimbourne Wasps. After reading it, I know it is going to be a bad day.

Unexpected Development

February 3rd, 2006 (08:47 pm)

current mood: confused
current song: Sounds of Angelina's twinkling laughter

We always meet at a small little bistro we found years ago. The food and service is not the best but it's quiet with an intimate atmosphere. Somewhere we can really be ourselves that most paparazzi won't follow.

January 31st, 2006 (06:23 pm)

I blew off my follow-up appointment with Katie this morning. My mind just hasn't been in the right place this last week. What's more, it may be a good idea to keep my distance form her after that article linking us together. I'm fine anyway; she did a wonderful job taking care of me.
Musings continuedCollapse )

January 27th, 2006 (06:43 pm)
current mood: despondent
current song: never ending silence of being alone

The day's bright morning light awakes me but the warmth is absent. Getting out of bed feels as a chore not only because of my injury but also because the flat's empty, cold, and quiet. Too quiet. It's a life of half existence now. Existing out of necessity not want.

I make my way to the kitchen. I should eat but the desire and will are not there. Clearing my thoughts by roughly scrubbing my face with my hands, I decide to release some tension. I purposefully divert my gaze from Lavender's belongings that I placed at the door yesterday after days of no communication.

Going Home

January 25th, 2006 (09:48 pm)

current mood: crushed

"You take care of yourself now, Captain. I didn't patch up your cracked ribs and the damage they caused for you to come back here anytime soon." Katie is standing in the door trying to sound calm and commanding but I can tell there's a touch of nervousness in her eyes like I'm about to give her twenty laps around the pitch or something. I've still got it.

Game Time

January 21st, 2006 (04:47 pm)

We have a game today against the Chudley Cannons. I get up and get ready so I can order breakfast at the Three Broomsticks before going to the stadium. Eating is not easy the day of the game but I always force myself to eat something. I know, from experience, Madam Rosmerta has my game schedule memorized and will humiliate me by sending food to the changing rooms if I skip it. Sometimes it's nice to feel mothered but it can be embarrassing.

I think things are about to get worse

January 11th, 2006 (11:48 am)

current mood: worried

It feels good to back to practicing again and getting out of this flat. It wasn't all bad. Although I was sick, it was nice to have Lavender look after me. Even if she did try to kill me with undercooked chicken.

I feel Awful

January 2nd, 2006 (06:18 pm)

current mood: sick

I feel awful. I raise my head slightly and let it fall back to my pillow.

I have aches and pains all over. My knees, my lower back, my shoulders. I just hurt and I feel blah. I'm freezing and have a comforter, quilt, and blanket on top of me. I'm wearing socks which I never wear to bed. I'm not going to be sick.

Blue Christmas

December 27th, 2005 (01:57 pm)

It's been a week since Lavender left. It's quiet around here. Too quiet. Even Wronski is getting bored and flying off a lot. I guess I'm not the best of company right now.

The flat is dark again as the sun drops behind the trees off in the distance. It's been dark a lot. I just don't see the sense in turning on any lights. It's my normal Christmas routine - watch Quidditch games, drink, order take out, drink, stay away from holiday stuff, and drink. May not be the ideal holiday scene for most but it's been mine for a long time.

Lunch with Pansy

December 19th, 2005 (12:00 pm)

current mood: contemplative

I owl Amethyst for confirmation two hours before the reservation time. I'm very nervous about this meeting.

I start getting ready for my meeting with Pansy early. It wouldn't do to show up late, inappropriately dressed, or out of sorts in any way. I wear my white silk button down shirt and dress trousers.

Concert and unfortunate realizations

December 17th, 2005 (02:56 pm)

current mood: contemplative
current song: The sounds of a crackling fire

Why do witches take so bloody long to get ready?

It's not like Lavender isn't stunning everyday. What else can she do herself? I lay on her bed waiting until she finally decides to grace me with her presence.

Maintaining Dignity

December 14th, 2005 (02:51 pm)

current mood: satisfied
current song: Loud rocking music

Lavender and I have been living together for a few weeks now. It's not all been smooth sailing but it's not been too terrible either.

This morning started off real pleasant. I woke up completely on my own. There were no alarm clocks no pecking owls and no women beating on my door and screaming like a banshee. No this morning started off quite delightful. Who would have ever thought that it could all change so drastically and quickly?

Coach calls an end to practice. Finally. It's been a long day. It's been a long week.

The Morning After

December 7th, 2005 (10:17 am)

current mood: tired
current song: Lavender munching

Oh my head! At least I'm in a bed. I wonder where I ended up last night. Wait there's an arm across me. It's not mine, or is it? No not hairy enough to be mine. Maybe if I open one eye, I might catch a glimpse of who I went home with.

When Oliver met Lavender

December 6th, 2005 (06:14 pm)

current mood: drunk
current song: Thumping music everywhere

I'm tired after my Christmas shopping, well window shopping actually, but I hurriedly dress for my night on the town with some of the team and reserves.

What am I doing?

December 6th, 2005 (05:31 pm)

current mood: determined
current song: The melodic sound of music and women

I can't believe I was gone for three weeks.

It all started so normally. I got up, dressed, ate, and did my morning work out. I then continued to shower and dress for Quidditch practice. Upon my arrival at the pitch, I was informed that we were scheduled for a Portkey for a week long practice in Australia against the Woollongong Warriors. Their famous animosity with the Thundelarra Thunderers and legendary violent performances were not understated. I learned that the hard way by taking a Bludger to the head and waking up in a hospital a week later. It brings back memories from my first season with the Hogwarts' Gryffindor Quidditch team.

Oliver's bio

November 15th, 2005 (09:22 pm)

My name is Oliver Wood. I am the Starting Keeper for Puddlemere United and hopefully the next England National Team. Many people think being a professional Quidditch star is glamorous. Well, they are right. People treat me with a great deal of respect and rush to meet my every whim. This includes the women. They are plentiful and I get to be as choosy as I want. Playing Quidditch is hard and a few perks is not a crime. Money, fame, and women are not the reasons I play. I love the game. I eat, sleep and breathe Quidditch. I don’t understand why some can’t see its value.
