For the Ravenclaw who sits across from me in Herbology
Is your name Edwin?
To who my owl finds, I'm hoping it's the right person

This is turning out to be some horrible owl that will probably not even make sense and for that, I am so sorry. I don't even know if I've got the right name!


Do.NOT.Take.This.Personally. You seem like a generally very nice person but every once and a while you give me the jitter bug. No, that sounds appalling. Look, you give my tummy an unpleasant feeling and ... it is NOT wanted, damn you! it should not be there. Do you understand? I would, very much, like to become friends with you. Despite the odor that tends to linger whenever you're around. I can overlook that small obstacle. I mean, I want to be as friendly as I can be without seeming like a horrid person, but then again... I suppose I already am horrid, otherwise, I wouldn't have sent out this owl. Bugger me.

I very much enjoy smiles, and am not afraid to smile right back whenever I see you in Herbology. Just please stop winking at me. Sorry for the smudges, there's a terrible ... draft in the room, windy and it's spilling all the contents of my apple cider onto the parchment. Er.

Hoping we can become good friends,

A cold. Can you believe this? I never sometimes get sick, but this my friend. Oh, ho, ho! Hardy, har, har, har, indeed. This is the cream of the crop, let me tell you. Blochy face and runny nose... yes. It is, indeed the point of my existance. I've got spots, can you believe that? They've started to itch, too. Is that bad? I mean, they start 'round my nose, and let me tell you, explaining to the girls in the dorm it's not a zit was not the highlight of my week.

I've even got some on my belly. Could pass as freckles, but Matt! I think I've got the rooster - no... bugger. What's the name for these? Chicken! I think I've got the chicken pox. How nice. Send me some mittens, will you? And maybe some tape? If I keep itching like this, it'll just sting more.

Hopelessly spotty. ('m going to die if you don't send those mittens)

I love him, I love him, I love him, I love him, I love him!
Hell, Matty,
It's been two days and already I've got loads many things to tell you. Right. Well, after that kiss Frank and I had, he admitted to liking me for quite sometime. And .. well it was full out snog fest after that. Who am I to complain, right? I mean.. bloody hell! Look what I did in Potions today! I even took out my lovely red ink! I'll send my notes... If that's what you'd call it

I love him, Matty.

Big, "I've found my Prince Charming" sigh,

Dear Dad,

How's Mum? I was hoping she'd be out of Mungo's by now, but no such luck with that, hm? I secretly wish I could do something to make it all better, but alas, all my hope is on its' last whim here. Did you receive my box of chocolates from Honeyduke's I sent? Surely you must have. There's a coconut flavored one I'm rather fond of... think you'd like it. I miss you and can't wait to hear from you soon. :)

Happy New Years and all my love,

[[OOC: I'm so sorry for my lack of posting. Due to deaths in the family, along with many other school struggles, it's been a hassle to have time for everything. Happy Holidays]]

Bloody. Buggering. Hell. Frank snogged kissed me! I was sitting in the common room, and he marched right up to me and said, "Alice - I..." and he didn't even finish, Matty! Just.. kissed me. I should be telling you how flabbergasted I am, and how much I wished it was a "Cinderella Kiss," but overall, it was.. perfect. He's brilliant and bloody hell! How come we never did this before?

I love him?
He's everything to me

Frank's brilliant. But does this mess everything up now? What do I do?

Write soon,

To the healers of St. Mungo's,

My mum, Linda Corbett, was sent in recently - around three days ago for reasons unknown to me, her daughter. I am not the social type around my family much, nor do I feel persistent enough to ask what's wrong with her. So I ask you this. Will she be okay? Can you assure me she'll be home soon with no problems or health issues? I must know and your respondence to this would be greatly appreciated.

Matty, I don't know what to do. I received this letter from my mum and she doesn't seem to be doing well. I'll send the attachment once I've found the parchment. Anyways, I don't know what to do. It seems as if I've hit a rock bottom and.. it's really hard. I talked to Rab yesterday. You remember him, don't you? The boy I've been dating since April? The one everyone said was no good for me?

Well come to find out, Matty, he's not too fond of me after all. Highly doubt he even fancied me in the first place. Apparently, his family members didn't approve and all that rubbish. Here I thought everything was going ace, yeah? He wasn't a complete arse about it like some blokes are, but I feel that he could have been more.. subtle, I suppose. Do you think that's rather harsh?

Blimey, Matty. What am I going to do? Oi! I've found the note from my mum, so I'll be sending that as well. Hope to hear from you soon.

Miss you and your jolly good moods,

P.S. Here's the letter from my mum ...

Okay, well I didn't get the boy of my dreams but Rabastan Lestrange - have you heard of him? - and I are now going out! It was a bit of a shocker, really. Anyways, we went to the lake today, considering he's not allowed in Hogsmeade until next term, and it was just brilliant, Matt!

I finally see why Lupin's always walking around with a giddy look on his face. It did start to rain, and he offered to keep me warm, but seeing as it was a first date, I was proper enough to kindly say no. We ran into a few of my friends - and I think some of them weren't too impressed I was dating a Slytherin. Well that didn't surprise me but if everything goes well, I'm sure it'll get better.

The thing is, is that Frank saw us together. And he looked so upset mad. I can't help but feel guilty, though, I think he'll get over it. He was the one who didn't talk to me, right? Yeah, well .. Frank's a big boy. He'll get over it.

I was asked to go to the next Quidditch match with him. Who am I to turn him down? He's so sweet, and we have loads in common. It's all just.. perfect. Unless someone comes and ruins in for us both, I think we'll do be just fine.

Well anyways, Lily's here. And I want to tell her everything. Girl chat, y'know? Thanks for everything, Matty and I'll be sure to give you the next part of drama in my life as soon as it happens. Believe me, shouldn't be long..

Still wearing a giddy expression,

I'm so happy we kept in touch these past few years because I need the honest truth from you. WHAT DID YOU SEE IN ME!? Honestly, you claimed to have "loved" me and all that but damn gosh! Frank won't even look at me, let alone talk to me. What am I supposed to do? We've been partnered up for Herbology, yeah? And I can't even get the oaf chap to look at me!

Gosh I -- is it me, Matt? Do you think maybe I'm a bad person and that I don't deserve to be loved again after what happened to us you and me? I know it's not just a silly little crush, and I do realize I'm a bit young to have such strong feelings but it's there, you know? I can't fight it anymore - not that I'd want to.

I must be such a horrid person, yeah? Blimey stupid even. I just need want - I don't know. Owl me back as soon as you get this because although there are several others I can possibly talk to, I feel as if you'd know. I mean you liked me, yeah? Please, please, PLEASE correspond back as soon as you can.

Thanks ever so much, Matty.

Pathetically yours,

Alice Corbett

Another year, and so far, train ride was brilliant. Really - much more amusing than the first time. although, I didn't know anyone first year but-- I just finished watching the sorting ceremony again a good hour ago. And I realize, I must have looked ruddy stupid up there my past year. I saw one little boy, who was sorted into Hufflepuff, blushing and it got me thinking - did I look that embarrased? Gosh, I'm such a feminine whiner. Honestly. Food, as usual, was delicious. I layed off the turkey this year, Mum, just like you said. Gives me horrible cramps stomach aches. The dorm seems a lot small, actually. Perhaps it's because I've grown so accustomed to it - I wouldn't know. Therefore, I'm hoping on making it much more "alive" this year. Perhaps some of the girls in my dorm will help me sprucen it up, yeah?

One can only hope. Though, Amelia is so bloody lazy I doubt she'll do anything. How's dad been? I know after the aurors called him in for work that day, I haven't been able to say good bye before I left. Tell him I miss him lots and that I send my love. Hopefully my improvements and tiresome Transfiguration study sessions will pay off this term. I'm definitely hoping dear old Minerva noticed a difference.

No, Mum. Close your mouth. Don't want to catch flies, do we? I know, "Never call a professor by their first name, dear. Be reasonable." I'm not laughing, I swear! hah. Yeah, right. Anyways, need to head to bed. Bright and early day tomorrow, you know? Send my love to the family and gosh, mum - get some rest.

Lots of Love,

I do realize that even though the date was absolute rubbish we both had our share of a good time on our date, I feel absolutely horrible writing to you write now. Don't take it the wrong way. though, you should It's just - I don't think you and me should see each other much more. It was a lovely evening, but I just feel as if you're boring there were no sparks, you know?

I feel no connection to you, and once again, my deepest and most humble apologies. Surely, we can still be good friends, yeah? Pen pals of some sort, perhaps? I think I'd like that very much. However, thank you for the lovely time and perhaps we can correspond again soon, eh? or not..

Your really good friend,

Alice Corbett

Dear Matthew,

Yes, I talked it over with my parents, and yes, the twenty- 25th will be lovely. You asked about Madam Puddifoot's to meet up, yeah? Sorry, but I'm no ninny.

I'm not a love sick puppy kind of gal Er- what do you say to meeting up at The Three Broom Sticks? Rosemerta's nice, yeah?

Honestly, I'm looking forward to this whole "First date" thing, aren't you? I mean, Frank some of my friends don't approve of it. But I'm thinking it's because you're from Durmstrong. That's just 'got' to be it, right? Well I certainly hope so. I just don't know what his their problem is.

Right, well.. 4:00 sharp. I'll see you there.

Lots more hugs and kisses,

Alice Corbett

Dear Matthew,

You know I was quite amused when you told me that you'd like to get together sometime. It just wasn't your everyday expectant letter, I suppose. Anyways, I'd love to meet up with you! I realize the whole Durmstrang/Hogwarts ordeal may cause a problem, but do not fret! I'm sure we can meet up in Diagon Alley sometime this summer, yeah? Or does that seem a tad too pushy? Do you think I'm rushing this?

Like you, I'm a first year. But in less than a full month, summer hols and I'll be rather disappointed. What can I say? The drafty castle has grown on me. And of course I'll miss Frank my friends. A few I'll miss more than others, but that's to be expected, right? Do you have any many friends at your school?

Well, I suppose I'll be getting back to you soon, Matt. Frank, Jenna and some of the rest of us are going to go round up a few people and start a quidditch match. I'll try to write back before the end of the term.

Many hugs and kisses,

Dear Mum & Dad,

Hogwarts, wow! What else to say? I mean, I was quite embarrased when I walked through a transparent object ghost, but other than that, the train ride was good. And Mum, tell Dad he was right. The ear wax flavored beans were horrid! I much prefer the chocolate and green bean flavored. There weren't many bullies on the train, like you said there would be, Dad. But hey! The less, the better, I suppose.

After the feast, which greatly took me by surprise, (how can someone 'eat' all that food?) the head boy - Donol Flannigan or what's his face took us to the Gryffindor Common Room - yes! Did I mention I was sorted into Gryffindor? I know you told me it was on the seventh floor but "bloody hell!" Moving stair cases too? Do they actually expect me to find my way to classes around here? I should hope not, considering I had trouble finding my way to the ruddy loo.

I am happy to say that I am pleased with my dorm. Just what I need to come back from a rough class and relax. And read my Edgar Allen Poe Well it's been a rough night, Mum. Send my love to dad for me, will you? I'll try to right back as soon as I can.

Awaiting for your correspondence does that sound weird?
