Dear Diary,

... to be without answers is to be lost.

It really only started this year. And -God- only knows why my grades have been slipping in Potions. My grades -never- slip. I've tried everything -- late nights, all-nighters, caffeine, drugs... and still I can't seem to bring my grades back up. Well... that is, until I asked Professor Snape for extra credit. And now... I've really screwed things up. I feel like I'm... betraying Harry. But I -need- perfect marks. And if holding regular meetings with Snape in his office will bring up my average, than that is what I must do. Harry would understand. Though sometimes I wonder if I'm doing this for some other reason than just to maintain my grade point average...

Harry. He really is wonderful... Everything feels just -perfect- when we're alone. And that's why I can't tell him. If he found out... I'm not sure what I would do. But I can't take that risk. Our... relationship, though nothing more serious than a friendship, is much too important to me -- and now I'm beginning to wish we hadn't promissed not to make a 'commitment' this year. Sometimes I think it may be the only thing keeping me from going off the deep end. And Harry does keep me from blowing up at Ron. Incompetence... it really annoys me sometimes.

Oh! In just five days, I'll be attending the Yule Ball with Harry! I think... He did say yes, right? And I -know- this time, the ball will be much more enjoyable. I doubt I will need quite as much Sleekeazy's Hair Potion, but I may have to owl Dervish and Banges for an owl-delivery. My dress is... perfect -- dark red, princess-cut, shoulderless. And even though I still don't know what to give Harry for Christmas, I imagine the ball will be nothing short of wonderful.

... if only I could figure my more personal issues out first.

The Christmas Holidays have begun!

Now, with the exception of my duties as Head Girl, I can finally breathe... Oh! In my panic to prepare and study for exams, I've forgotten -- remind me again: who is staying for the holidays?

[Private: Snape]
Professor. When shall I drop by again for my lesson?
[/Private]

[Private: Harry]
Hey! Umm... I just wanted to remind you that I love you. And I absolutely can't wait until the 25th. We are going together, right?

I'll be here, Herm. And I was wondering if you could help me with the notes from that last advanced Charms class? I skived off for some one on one missed it.

Of course, Kate! *shuffles through neatly organized folders of notes* ... I've found them. When are you not off having some one on one free?

Oh, any old time now that classes are off, and thank god for that. Another lecture on goblin rebellions and I'd have gone totally spare. Anyway, you can just owl them to me, or something if you don't have the time. And thanks for the notes!

((OOC: Whee! I get to use my Beatrix Icon!))

*Beatrix drops a rather -heavy- bundle of notes in Kate's lap in the middle of breakfast*

Note attached:
Here are the notes, Kate.

Much love and understanding,
Hermione.

Re: [private:hermy/harry]

... Harry, I thought we -talked- about this. *smiles* I... I... sort of told everyone that... you were taking me. I mean, I know it wasn't clear last time, but I sort of hoped you got the idea.

I'm terribly sorry if you had other plans... Um... Yeah. Just let me know.
