[James is grinning with a rather confused expression when he appears on the screen.]

It's been over a week now and I still can't believe it. I think I'm dating Lily Evans. We kissed and everything!

ooc: Yes. It's true. This is the start of James and Lily finally dating. And if subject lines are still a problem, feel free to write it at the top of your tag in bold or something. :)

[video; iiiiiiiiiiiiit's time-skip time~]  
[Sure it's only been a few days for you, but Lily's book went and vanished for a year. But when she woke up, it was sitting on her bedside table, sitting next to a small duck-shaped cake.]

I must say, it was a surprise to find the community returned to my journal, much more so to find a rather tasty cake sitting beside it. I don't suppose it's common for the community to leave you for a year, then welcome you back with a cake, is it?

At any rate, I got my Hogwarts letter a couple weeks back, for my seventh and final year. I've been made Head Girl. Even with such good news, it's strange how fast time goes by when you look back on it all.

((Tags tomorrow when I get home from work.))

Hello, community. I'm taking a small break from my summer homework to fulfill a promise I made prior to the summer holidays.

I've been informed by Peter Kirkland (otherwise known to some of you as Sealand) that his older brother, Arthur Kirkland (also known as England) doesn't have many friends.

For those who do not know him, he is a human representation of the country, England. His interests include practicing magic; not getting stoned by his older brother, Scotland; spending time with a unicorn, faerie, and pirate that not many others can see; and tea.

Should anyone be interested in getting to know him better, please inquire within.

((Please note, this will be taking place before the Marauder cast time skip.))

video // backdated to just after the bodyswap virus  
[Lily appears in view, green eyes bright with curiosity and her wand in hand. Behind her is a view of the fifth year Gryffindor girl's dormitory... where the wall meets the ceiling. The top of a four-poster bed across the room can be seen too. A smile appears when she sees that it's recording.]

Brilliant! I finally got it to connect for a video recording on my own! I don't really have much to say right now, though. I took my Defense Against the Dark Arts theory exam this morning and the practical was in the afternoon. I've got a good feeling about the grade I'll get, but I won't know for sure until the summer. So, got my fingers crossed all my studying paid off. [She grins and holds up a hand with her fingers crossed. As she opens her mouth to continue, the door to the room opens and another girl's voice can be heard. Lily looks off toward the door.]

Lily?

Yes, Mary?

It's... Snape. [There's obvious distaste in Mary's tone, she clearly disapproves of him.] I just passed him on my way into the common room. He's been out there since after dinner and begged me to send you out to talk-- [Lily interrupts her, her tone going colder than anyone who knows her is bound to have heard, even those who heard her talk with disgust about James.]

I don't care, I've heard enough.

He said he was going to sleep out there all night and wait if he had to. Frankly, I'm not too keen on running into him before breakfast and our exam tomorrow....

[Lily heaves a heavy sigh and gets up.] Fine. I'll go.

[Her book shifts from where she had it propped up to catch a glimpse of Mary standing at the door as Lily puts on a dressing gown. She scoops up the book and her wand, attempting to disconnect the video as she goes down a spiral staircase. When she gets to the common room, she stows her wand into her pocket and holds the book in one arm. The video has not disconnected. In fact, it seems to have a clear view as she hops out of the portrait hole and stops in front of a younger Severus Snape. Anyone who might know his older self from killing Dumbledore can easily recognise him by his grasy black hair, hooked nose, and sallow skin. As soon as he sees her, there is a spark of hope in his black eyes, even as Lily's arms cross over her chest.]

I wanted to say I was sorry.

Was? [Her tone is none too happy and had anyone been able to see her face, they'd see a raised eyebrow.]

I... I am.... I'm sorry. [He falters slightly under whatever harsh stare she's subjecting him to, but his apology sounds sincere... and desperate. When she speaks now, there is absolutely no pity in her voice, as if she's heard this apology many times before.]

I'm not interested.

I'm sorry!

Save your breath. I only came out here because Mary told me you were threatening to sleep here.

I was. I would have done. I never meant to call you Mudblood, it just--

Slipped out? It's too late. I've made excuses for you for years. None of my friends can understand why I even talk to you. You and your precious little Death Eater friends-- [there's a quick pause, before she continues to lash out] you see, you don't even deny it! You don't even deny that's what you're all aiming to be! You can't wait to join You-Know-Who, can you?

[Every last syllable is filled with a cold anger. Snape opens his mouth, as if to reply, but he says nothing and closes it.]

I can't pretend anymore. You've chosen your way, I've chosen mine.

No-- listen, I didn't mean-- [Lily cuts him off]

--to call me Mudblood? But you call everyone else of my birth Mudblood, Severus. Why should I be any different?

[Snape struggles to reply, but only weak noises can escape him. The video only catches a second more of him in this piteous state before it turns suddenly. Lily gives the password to a fat lady in a pink silk dress in the painting, which swings open. She climbs back into the common room, tells off some second-years for staring at her, and returns to her dormitory. She drops her book back on her bed and pulls out her wand. She points it at the book, as if to reestablish the video connection when she notices that it's still on. Lily stares at it for a moment, then with a glow of blue light, cuts off the feed.]

((Yay for backdated canon update! 8D;;; Red font is Mary, green font is Snape, a vast majority of her conversation with Snape has been yanked right from Deathly Hallows, and replies will be dated before her exam the next day.))

[Handwritten; he hasn't figured out magic book video yet]  
I wish I could say that waking up in a female body was something I wasn't at all familiar with, but this community being what it is, that would be too much to ask for.

Lily, I'm going to assume that you're the one currently occupying my body, in which case I apologise as you're probably going to have to deal with both politics and my family in one fell swoop. Just ignore most of the paperwork, I'll get back to it once this bloody virus is over, and if anyone from the government calls mention that it's a community situation. They'll sound incredulous but they know better than to question it by now. ... if Douglas throws a brick through my window again, I'm afraid you're on your own.

That out of the way, no, as you've probably already figured out, this isn't Lily, it's Arthur. I assume that we're being hit with another virus, then?

[Back dated to Yesterday (30-01-81)!]  
Guess what ducks. It's my wife's birthday today. She's going to be twenty-one and I going to take her out for a meal at this Muggle restaurat I found. Moony and Padfoot are babysitting so we won't worry about Harry.

It's going to be the best birthday I've ever given her. I can't wait for tonight!

PSA  
It has come to my attention that a certain Potions professor and Head of Slytherin House is unable to determine true talent in his class. To be honest, I don't think he would be able to identify talent if it bit his nose off.

In any case, for those of you interested in help for Potions class from a student who knows what she's doing with a cauldron, despite the opinion of a biased fraud, I'm willing to meet up with anyone today.

((Anyone who wants an action spam thread are more than welcome to it. 8D))

Is there a "Lily Evans" in the house?  I'd like to speak with her about something.

Intro~  
After watching a stream of messages appear on page after page, some even able to show videos of some sort or simply talk, I now wonder if I have, indeed, seen nearly everything. So now I shall add to the list of writers with a question for you all.

Is there anyone who can explain how a blank journal bought in a Muggle shop is able to do such a thing. And before any of you say anything, I didn't do anything to it.
