As many of you know Marlene McKinnon has been lost, alongside her entire family.  Murdered at the hands of our foes. 

I do not know who is responsible, or why they have done what they have done.  Would that I did.

It is at times such as these when we must remember what we fight for.  We fight for the lives of those like Marlene, who was so strong, so brave, so wonderfully alive.  We fight for those she loved, who were lost for some unknowable reason.

In these times, we must remember not to forget.

Hallo, sorry I never replied to your responses before, but as Gideon predicted things did get a bit busier. With any luck our hard work will be paying off tonight, and we'll be making a few arrests and returning to the real world! This is where you come in--if anyone's not busy, Mr Moody and I could maybe use a bit of backup. We plan to crash a bit of a gathering tonight and we have reason to think our suspects are going to have some company. The Ministry may be sending a bit of help as well, but my woman's intuition is telling me to see if any of you lot can make it.

Oh and if you do come, please be sneaky about it. We're doing a bit of a stakeout and hoping to catch these lads red-handed or we won't have much of a case. I'd love to pack them off to Azkaban and be done with it. I'm more than ready to swap my teddy bear back for a husband.

Hope to see some of you soon, and the rest of you soon after that!

Well Mr Moody-- or should I say, 'Dad', haha-- and I are all settled here in Scotland for the investigation. For security reasons I've left my other journal at home, and I'm not supposed to do any owling either, but this journal's got all sorts of charms and such so I figured it was safe to bring. And who knows, if something comes up I may need to get in touch with you lot. But for now I'm just saying hello because it's rather lo quiet up here.

I think I can speak for all of us when I say thanks to Lily and James for a marvellous New Year's do! It was lovely to ring in the new decade with some of my favourite people and I'm wishing you all the best for 1980. Say, I'd love to see how that photo turns out!

I also had a very nice Christmas and I hope you all can say the same. I now have a lovely new greenhouse from Frank and piano from my Mum and Dad, I'm sad to leave them so soon! Frank and I saw my family for the holidays via our brand-new Floo connection he had set up for me, so now I don't have to flirt with the blokes in transportation. Thank you again love, and I miss you already. Oh which reminds me, don't be alarmed if you don't see much of Frank for a bit either, when I left he couldn't find his journal anywhere and I'm inclined to think Willie or Fred had something to do with it.

Well time to go and earn my salary, hm? Happy New Year again everyone, and I'll let you know when I've come home.

Right. First things first. Merry Christmas everyone! I know it hasn't arrived just yet but I'm dreadfully excited and it's always fun to give and receive another season's greeting. Besides this journal doesn't always have be the bearer of bad news or the planner of another mission. It positively pleases me to say, I hope you all have a beautiful Christmas. I even managed some alliteration to give Remus another reason to smile. Remus, dear, you are looking so much better and I am so happy to see it.

James and I have had a little chat about getting the group of us together to celebrate the New Year. Renew that group spirit! So on New Year's Eve, James and I would love to have you all over at our place. Does that sound good?

I had an idea that our recent bit of, er, public display of infatuation in Crou the office might actually result in my doing a bit more work in the field, and it would seem I was right! Some of you may have heard Mr Moody talking of a bit of suspect activity in the North of Scotland. There have been a few seemingly related but wholly unpredictable crimes against Muggles and Muggleborn, very much in the style of You-Know-Who, and yet no sign of either the Dark Mark nor of any rumoured Death Eaters. It may turn out to be nothing serious, but Mr Moody convinced Mr Crouch that it warranted a bit of undercover investigation, and so I'll be joining him for a 'father-daughter holiday' in Scotland, right after the New Year.

It's my first undercover work for the Ministry--even if Mr Crouch somehow intends it as punishment, I'm feeling quite flattered and excited. And also a bit... of some less familiar emotions. Well. Wish us luck. Unlike someone I might mention (ahem, Gideon) I'll try to keep you informed if anything significant happens, but otherwise don't expect to see much of me. I'm wishing you all a very happy Christmas!

Right then.

I am awake now.  I suppose that would be all.

Oh yes.  Thank you to everyone who visited, though I was certainly poor company in that time having been asleep.

It's a bit difficult to write, and so I will stop now.

But thank you.

I didn't think I'd see this place again so soon. If this keeps up they're going to know me by name here.

Remus slept yesterday. Last night he woke up and talked to me. Told me it hurt and he didn't remember what had happened. I told him the healers would come and fix everything up but they didn't until later, after he'd gone back to sleep. After he told me that he didn't want to sleep because he thought he might not wake up. And he hasn't, not today. He's sleeping now and I'm sitting here writing this because it stops me thinking that he might be right. He sounded just as sure that he was right as I was that he was wrong. It's going to make me mad waiting to find out which one of us was correct. I think I can hear a clock in another room and that isn't helping in the least. Well maybe if I do go mad they won't have to take me far.

So he's sleeping now. Alice, thanks for the flowers and the owl. It's good you and Frank are all right anyway. James - thanks mate. What else can I say?

Whatever happens, when this is over with, I'm going to find the one who caused this. That bastard that did this to him and made me watch it all without being able to stop it - I'm going to catch them, and do all the damage they did and more. I'll kill every Death Eater in existence if that's what it takes, even Voldemort. I'll make them sorry they ever crossed my path.

I suppose I'd better be the one to do this. I was right; it was a trap, but we knew that. Sirius was Remus was badly injured. And Sirius isn't doing too well either. I mean, he's physically fine but... right, I shouldn't go into it.

They ambushed us on the shore of the lake; I'm not sure as to an exact count but we weren't too badly outnumbered. Bellatrix was there, unless they've randomly taken on another female Death Eater who's that good with a wand. Dolohov was unmasked...I'd like to see him bloody try that when I'm on the job! Rabastan was there as well; the only reason I know that is that he got me with the Imperius Curse. Heard his voice in my head; he tried to get me to...stab Alice. I stabbed him instead but Dolohov was on me after that so I didn't get to finish the job.

There was about another thirty seconds of chaos, and then Lily got one of them with a Stunner, which released Sirius, and they Disapparated after that.

Not to ruin holiday spirits, but... am I the only one seriously disturbed by Rabastan and Dolohov? I mean, more so than usual? I have a few guesses as to the sort of party they're planning. But it also smells of a trap.

All right then.  Am I to understand that Sirius and Frank have been up to no good?

Ashwinder eggs?  That's vigilante justice, mates, for shame.  Wish I had been there.

Overheard some blokes at Egan's last night and it sounds as though there might be some minor Death Eater activity in Ruthin. I'm going to head over there and look around a bit for the next few days. It's probably nothing, but if I stay around London any longer I'll go mad.

Writing this here because I'd rather not confess to the world at large how much of a git I am. My head still hurts. Alcohol is shite, honestly. I'm a lot worse off than I was before I got pissed. I don't even know how the fight started; I don't bloody remember a thing. I owe thanks to Sirius and Remus. I owe you both. I'm ashamed she had to call you in like that. And I can't even begin to apologise to Alice.

I feel like I've let everyone down. Hugh was a great guy; he'd never hurt a soul. He was the only one of the lot who would refuse to go on hunting trips. Couldn't bear to take another life. I didn't know Sarah quite as well, but she was always very kind to me for her part. And now they're dead, and it's probably because of me.

So I'm shitty friend, husband, and cousin. Three for four. I'm going to make sure I'm not a shitty Auror on this. I need to find out who did this. I need to.

Just letting everyone know, Frank's fine, or well he will be fine. I can't say the same for the Hog's Head but I imagine they're used to a bit of a brawl. I'm certainly not, goodness that was an adventure I don't care to repeat! Remus and Sirius, thank you so very much for helping me out, I couldn't handle a falling-down drunk husband and the wrath of a dozen Hog's Head patrons all at once.

So Frank's still in bed and he's, well he's lucky I've lost my will to give him the scolding he probably deserves. Of all the reasons to run off and get smashed he had a... he had a pretty good one. And I'm just glad to have him back.

Alice and I were awakened a few hours ago by coworkers in Magical Law Enforcement. My cousin and his wife were murdered in their home this evening. Someone shot the Dark Mark into the air after.

Why? What the fuck did Hugh or Sarah ever do to anyone. I'm trying to make sense of it, but I just don't get it. I need a drink.

Bloody hell! Did you lot see the Prophet? Since when do Death Eaters kill without magic? I mean, they've got werewolves and assorted daggers and poisons...but this doesn't seem to go along with their general method of operation. Any thoughts here?

Hello everyone! You should all be receiving this by owl very soon, but as we're in something of a rush it seemed a good idea to post an extra copy here.



I hope very much to see you all there!

Well we...fuck. Basically, we walked into an ambush. And Voldemort was there. Everybody's all right, but Alice and I would be dead if it hadn't been for quick wandwork on the part of Sturgis, Emmeline, and Alastor.

I reckon it would best to brief the rest of you in case some of us don't Well, just in case.

Alice and I have strongly suspect that Rabastan Lestrange is the nutter stalking Miss Chittock. We don't have any solid proof, but there is also the fact that he all but publically declared himself a Death Eater. Alice, Sturgis, Emmeline and I are going to be trailing him this evening. Mr Moody will be along as backup. Hopefully this will turn something up.
