Roderick Proudfoot

The Alchemist. He is dangerous because he challenges the very fabric of the universe with his incessant meddling. Whiling away the bitter hours he toils over ancient tomes and ancient minds. He hunts for the grail in his own blood, destroys gods with his every achievement, and his laboratory is his cathedral.He will find the key to life everlasting, or burn himself alive in the attempt. In this peculiar way, he is the kindest madman you will ever meet.

You know, whoever put the dog kibble on my desk in the poor attempt at a prank the joke is really on you. Unless wolves are slowly introduced to dog food, they are unable to derive most of their nutritional needs from it. Wolves need a full protein diet rather than the rice, corn, or oats added to most kibble. So instead of being a cruel commentary on my lycanthropic status I assume you just want to give my dad a free bag of kibble for his dog as I don't own a dog nor do I want one. I'm sure he'd like to thank you in person.

My lease is up at the end of the month. I'm not sure if I want to sign up for another year or if I want to go through the bother of finding a new flat. Or figuring out a budget to afford a new flat. I could live outside London, but that would require a Floo hookup and those forms are murder.

I'm not going to really mention the protests, except to point out the fact that people would protest goblins working and running Gringotts isn't really all that surprising. First, did anyone actually pay attention to History of Magic and the Goblin Wars? Of course not. So to sum up: Wizarding-Goblin relations are touchy at the best of times and pretty bloodthirsty the rest. Second, prejudices against anything but "full" Wizards and Witches is pretty rampant. I doubt that needs much explanation and my pen is dying so I'm not going to explore that in depth.

Listening to the wireless and I heard the repeat from the earlier broadcast.

Lily, are you allowed out of your house? Or are they all being smotheringly overprotective? Do you want to come over to the flat? ...Can Quen and I come over? Should we?

So far the various rumours and stories flying through the hallways are unreliable at best. Would someone please tell us (the students) what is going on. Diagon was attacked. Do they know by who? How many were hurt? Was anyone killed?

[Bell-Jordans, George & Angelina Weaseley, Roxy, Fred]
Please tell me those who are not stuck in Hogwarts are alright.

You are worth the risk of expulsion.

So. Burn Podmore, et. al. in effigy? Ask Peeves to give them hell? Wet-Start fireworks?

I mean, I suppose they could strip me of the Head Boyship or I could tenure my resignation, but then that leaves them with two students to run things that have no idea what they're doing. That'd look great for them....

The weekend cannot get here soon enough.

[Private - Heavily Warded]
After careful consideration and in light of recent events, we have offered the summer internship opportunity to another, more qualified, candidate.

That is such bullshit. I am at the top of the class in Charms and nearly there in Transfiguration and Arithmancy. You can't find a better fucking candidate.

In light of recent events my arse. If they'd bothered to check at all they would have know that I haven't lived with Rufus Wilkes since I was seven. It shouldn't matter that I'm his next of kin and suddenly technically a lot more wealthy.
