March 22nd, 1979 (08:06 pm)

Sixty-two days until my birthday, you know!! And only eighty until I will begin my work at the Ministry!! I don't see it as work, really. It's more of a service to the poor Muggles unfortunate — or perhaps lucky!! — enough to witness magic. I would do it for no pay at all, you know!! But I won't pass up the money either. It's my calling.

Regulus has been a bit scarce lately. He's very busy, you know!! So am I, of course. I'm ever so caught up with my studies!! We both take very rigorous courses. Just one of the many things we have in common!!

I think Harper tried to slip something into my pumpkin juice this morning!! I am very observant, you know. It may have been a hair potion, or perhaps something more intriguing. He worries me. It's very good that we have Regulus around to keeps us all in line!!

Mum finally owled back, by the by, and. Well. The Easter hols might be a bit of a pickle, to say the least!!

You're welcome, I suppose!! I'm not sure what for, but my mere presence in these journals should be enough to brighten your dreary lives!!

I've done it!! I've been accepted!! Oh, this is the happiest day of my life!! Well, top three, at the very least.

The letter came yesterday at breakfast, and I could have kissed everyone at the table!! I am so glad Regulus was there to share my joy as well. If only you could have been there — yes, you!! The moment was that glorious. I wanted everyone to be there. Oh, silly me, you must all be waiting on pins and needles to know what I'm talking about!!

On the condition that I receive at least an E on my Charms NEWT — and really, what a joke!! — I, Gilderoy Valentino Lockhart, am now an Obliviator for the Ministry of Magic!!

I will begin in June, almost immediately after Hogwarts. It cannot come soon enough!! Level three, be prepared!!

You are so very welcome for this thrilling bit of utterly fantastic news!!

Mum still hasn't owled me back!! It has been nine days. This is quite distressing.

I have yet another fervent admirer in the castle!! Just one of the many, I can assure you. She is quite lovely, though I'm not sure about her brother. After tonight's dinner, we made a list of our peers who are in most desperate need of a makeover, which is to say, most of them!! She's asked me to help her with her Charms studies tomorrow. Yes, Nicole Rosier is a wonderful person!!

The other night, I saw Regulus reading the book that I gave him!! I knew he liked it!! Also, my scar is incredibly impressive. Professor Slughorn even complimented Regulus's work when we had our chat!!

I apologise that the latest edition of my newsletter has been delayed!! Surely, you all understand how very busy I am with my demanding classes and social schedule!! Oh, it is a blessing and a curse (but mostly a blessing) to be me. However, you will all be pleased to know that it is now only eighty-nine days until my birthday!!

I think I will go write to Mum again. Perhaps the owls are being intercepted. Though I am certain I know the answer to these vile and disgusting rumours, it's always good to hear it from the source!!

You're welcome!!

Today, I awoke in the hospital wing from the oddest dream!! Apparently I had been pitching a fit last night due to some terrible nightmare and Regulus saved me, but I'd rather not relive it so let's just move along, shall we?

Next topic: THE MANY MERITS OF REGULUS ARCTURUS BLACK!!

1. He is the most sincere individual I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
2. He is brilliant at everything.
3. He is quiet and therefore a good listener.
4. He's the best Slytherin Seeker we've ever had!!
5. His eyes are blue, like mine.
6. He gladly does his Prefect duties and keeps us all in line and he deserved Head Boy more than anyone!!
7. He has nice hair, though not as nice as his brother's. But still nice.
8. He is my best chum.
9. He mostly glares but sometimes he smiles and that's good too.
10. HE SAVED MY LIFE!!

How can I ever repay you, Regulus?? Oh, poppycock, my presence in your life should be repayment enough but here is a short list of some of the things I am offering to do: dust the ground before you walk on it, share my brightly coloured robe collection with you, style your hair for you every morning (I'm very good, I promise, you've seen my hair after all!!), cut your food, teach you how to properly smile, carry your books, hold your towels, tell you bedtime stories (still don't understand why you made me stop during our third year!!), campaign for a mid-year transfer of Head Boy status, be your publicity manager when you run for Minister of Magic, and much much more!!

You're all very welcome for this informative announcement about my best chum, Regulus!!

I DON'T UNDERSTAND

So!! I saw the spread on Frank Longbottom in Lumos and I think it is disgusting!! I have so many things to say and no way to say them - SHALL WE MAKE A CHART, I THINK I WILL MAKE A CHART

Hair
Frank Longbottom: THINNING, SPLIT ENDS, AN UNSAVOURY AND DULL DISHWATER BROWN
Gilderoy Lockhart: SHINING GOLDEN BLOND WAVES THAT SMELL PERPETUALLY OF LILACS

Eyes
Frank Longbottom: BEADY, SQUINTY, LAUGH LINES AT THE CORNERS, NO ONE CARES WHAT COLOUR
Gilderoy Lockhart: LARGE, PERFECTLY SHAPED, FORGET-ME-NOT BLUE

Skin
Frank Longbottom: PALE, WRINKLES ALREADY!!, CLEARLY DOES NOT MOISTURISE AS OFTEN AS NECESSARY
Gilderoy Lockhart: THE COMPLEXION OF A GOD

Sleep Habits
Frank Longbottom: SLEEPS STANDING UP, HENCE THE LACK OF COLOUR IN HIS FACE
Gilderoy Lockhart: TEN HOURS OF BEAUTY REST A NIGHT, ON STOMACH

Fashion Sense
Frank Longbottom: RECENTLY STARTED WEARING CRAVATS, OUTDATED AND ILL-FITTING SUITS
Gilderoy Lockhart: HAS WORN CRAVATS FOR YEARS, CUTTING EDGE ROBES

Personality
Frank Longbottom: WITLESS, SEEMINGLY DRUNK MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, INCREDIBLY DULL
Gilderoy Lockhart: CHARMING, INTELLIGENT, BRAVE, HUMBLE, INCREDIBLE IN EVERY WAY

Personally, I think that the choice is QUITE OBVIOUS, however the WIZARDING WORLD AT LARGE seems to think OTHERWISE.

YOU'RE WELCOME!!

What a peculiar tale I have for all of you rapt readers today!! Well, four days ago, my best chum Regulus got a bit testy. Something about invasion of his personal space and a lot of other words that I know he didn't mean. (By the by, I've forgiven you for your comment about my hair, Regulus!!) Then he took my journal and threw it in one of the fires, though I think that the hidden meaning behind that act was "write more, Gilderoy, or else you are burning pages!" Just like the fire burned the pages. It was very poetic.

Here is what you're thinking right now: "But Gilderoy, you handsome chappy, if Regulus burned your journal in a fit of poetic rage, how are you writing these glorious words right now?"

Well, by some stroke of strange luck, I found it in my water closet today!! Funny how some things end up, isn't it?

This also just in: someone in the castle has stolen my hair rollers. I cannot stress the severity of this situation. I need an Auror to sort this out, immediately if not sooner!! Yes yes, I know that there are charms for that sort of thing, but you'd be surprised to learn that the Muggle methods hold up a smidge better! My hair is FLAT today. It lacks VOLUME. Do you understand? I NEED MY ROLLERS. I wrote Mum to send me another set, but those were her favourite so she may not be too pleased with me, and it may take days. DAYS. In the meantime, my hair looks like Mr. Ivory Comb's mop, and that is truly tragic.

I do believe Professor Flitwick asked me to give him a lesson in Memory Modifying Charms after dinner, so I must be off! People to grace with my presence, you know.

You are so very welcome!

Isn't it fabulous that even when I return to Hogwarts, I'll still be able to keep all of you updated on my life? These journals are so useful!! I may even have to disband my mailing list. HAHA! A JOKE! Don't worry, I sensed your tears. I would never disband the mailing list, never ever!

My parents are all broken up about their little boy going off for his last term at Hogwarts. Mum mostly just stays at home and cries and bakes scones and paints pictures of me, but Dad and I have been going on adventures!! We bought plums today. Baskets and baskets of plums. I love plums, did you know that? They are my favourite fruit! You should remember that little bit of trivia, as it may save your life some day. But yes, plums - were I a fruit, I would definitely be a plum! And they are purple! Amazing.

Equally amazing: MY FATHER'S CAMERA!!



(I'm saving the self-portraits for next month's owl posts!! You understand, right?)

Also, I think that if certain people who use these journal things are jealous of my beautiful head of hair, then they should probably just come out and say it!!

I simply cannot wait to return to Hogwarts!! The castle misses me. I can just tell.

You're welcome!

Hello, it is I!

Over the hols I filled up my latest diary! That makes twenty-two. I fully intend on selling them as a complete set of memoirs once I leave Hogwarts. In the meantime, I suppose this will do! Apparently we can write each other? So you will be in my memoirs! A part of my life will be yours! Lucky you - although not lucky enough for you to garner any of the imminent fortune, but surely you understand.

I attended a smashing party with the one and only Celestina Warbeck, by the by! She practically begged me to do the back up vocals on her latest album, but sadly I will be sitting my N.E.W.T. exams on the date she requested. Perhaps one day, Celestina, you minx!

Also, I need not remind all of you that my birthday is in only one hundred thirty-nine days! For your reference, my favourite colour is lilac, chartreuse dress robes are always welcome, and I need new peacock feather quills.

Thanks are unnecessary. You're welcome for this entry!
