I'm sure you were all wondering why I just disappeared over the past week. Father pulled both Lucius out of school for the week to take care of some family business. I barely even saw Lucius all week, despite that we were in the same mansion for well over 168 hours this past week. Unless I'm mistaken, Lucius spent the week in meetings with some of father's most loyal friends- the ones who firmly believe that every muggle and muggle born wizard should be killed, or enslaved. I was able to sit in on a couple of meetings, but most of the time, I was helping to gather information. Apparently, they found a man they happen to believe is the best thing that has ever happened to the wizarding world. The odd part, is that they don't seem to mind that he's not pureblood- unless they don't know. No matter. He tends to go by the name of Lord Voldemort, though I seriously doubt that's his real name. I also have a hard time believing that he'll ever be as powerful as my father seems to hope, though I could be surprised. Anyway, enough serious stuff for the time being.
I managed to catch a couple of pictures- he isn't overly fond of cameras, even wizard cameras, as they remind him of the muggle world, which he detests. Perhaps that's why he is so accepted. Either way, he is absolutely gorgeous. Doesn't look his years at all. Unlike father, he actually looks good for being in his forties. I really shouldn't be going on about a man who's twice my age, should I?
Laren, he's in the same league as Severus! It's rather scary, actually. They're already speaking of banding together, which means that I have to get very serious about how to handle these next few years. I still don't know what I'm going to do if it comes down to choosing between life and serving in the same expertise as my father and brother, or taking a chance at rebellion from the dark forces, and taking a chance at getting myself killed. It's already quite clear that I can handle myself in the dark arts, but in truth, I'd prefer something less dangerous. Dragon taming, perhaps. Nice and safe field to get into, don't you think?
