Yet another day of uncertainty amongst the rumbling hearts of Hogwarts. What to do, what to do? I’ll tell you what to do– Write in to me and I will be happy (Or not so happy) to answer all of your questions.
A new respondent? How wonderful. You don’t know me, but your readers might. I’ve been having a fair bit of bother over the last few months, you see, in the form of the old ball and chain. I love her, but lord above she’s an almighty pain in the rear. Well anyway, recently she kissed another man (I won’t say who but his name rhymes with ‘Betcha’) and, well, I’m still not over it. So, my question for you, Black Owl, is, am I allowed to kiss a fit Veela? Just to make it even. Because if not, I’m going to need some sort of repellent, those bloody harpies are a nuisance – they infringe on my free thinking and get me daydreaming about taking them out back for a snog or three. It’s not fair, if you ask me, but yes, that’s my dilemma. Can I kiss a Veela to make it even? –Pinky Out
What… kind of question is this? You want ME to give YOU approval to go kiss a Veela? Because your ‘ball and chain’ decided to step out and kiss another person? Wow. Let me just.. Pause a moment so that I can wrap my head around this.
Ahem, right. So, number one, you’re in Hogwarts… Love means what? You’re young, you’ve got time. If she’s a pain in the bum and she’s kissing other people, I say dump the witch and find someone who is going to value you.
Number two, No????? Why would you kiss someone else to ‘make it even’? What sense does that make?! They’re /Veelas/, love. That’s what they do… That is their purpose in life… To get under your skin and make you feel like doing something out of your normal character. Maybe you could try spraying them with water like I do with my cat when he starts to misbehave. I can’t tell if you /actually/ want to snog someone else to make it even or snog a veela to make it even. If you’re only after a veela, then it’s all surface. Nothing real there. If it’s just anyone who comes along, you have bigger problems.
Have a nice little sit down with the other half and explain that her … throwing herself about isn’t okay and if she doesn’t correct herself, you’ll be out the door and onto the next.
I am so confused with my place in life. I feel like I’m pulled many different ways. I am for a group that many people don’t understand but yet we are treated horribly. I don’t see why giving us poison cookies would make us change our minds. `Sighs
Oh, dear. Are you confused because you want to be accepted but also feel like you shouldn’t have to mold to others idea of ‘normal’? If so, I understand. I struggled this morning rolling out of bed for classes because I was having an internal battle with myself. What is going to make you happy, Sighs? Is it going to be you conforming? Or is it going to be who you are meant to be? Poison Cookies seem… a bit of a stretch so that’s definitely something I’d take up with your Head of House. This is my genuine advice and not me being a smart arse. Do what’s right for you because if you don’t, you will forever regret being someone you’re not.
