The devil he wore such a fine, fine shirt,
And it stayed so clean while he dragged me through the dirt...

My dearest Cecily,
We continue to fall apart without you here to aid me - I do not know how much longer I can clutch all the strings myself, and there is no one I can trust. I was never made for this, I know, but if I leave how many lives will be lost...or worse yet, ruined? I suspect that it is worse to live in Ushaw Moor than to die in it - no place I have yet been makes me so badly wish to leave it, and yet I cannot.
I cannot because I spent much of my Shabbat crying. I cried with Gideon, promised that I had a home for him away from this madness and death. What if I had not been here? Where would he find solace? I cried with Sir Beckett's betrothed - she happy, and I terrified for her soul. Quoniam in aeternum misericordia eius, I hope my words lodged themselves in her heart and take root. Who would she have turned to, were I gone?
Of course, as well, I wait for you - I will wait for you, best beloved, until the town is in cinders around my feet. Who knows how close that day is?
"AND WHILE WE'RE ASKING QUESTIONS, WHY DOES FUCKING SLYTHERIN EVEN EXIST!?
Even the Sorting Hat's like, "Ohhhh, if you're brave like a lion, you can be in Gryffindor/And if you're boring and a nerd, it's Ravenclaw for you/And the rest of the people just go in Hufflepuff, because whatever/And for the evil fucks, let me direct you to our dark wizard factory in the basement called Slytheriiiiiiin!" It makes no sense."
Go and read Lindy West's hilarious review of all the Harry Potter movies here. Too funny!
While I technically have a car, I REALLY do not feel comfortable taking it out to game yet - the roads get pretty dodgy, and I am just not good enough at driving to make it anything other than an exercise in nail-biting terror.
Can has ride? As usual I will pay for gas, provide snacks and hilarious gossip. I get off work at 5 in the Eastlake area of Seattle.
EDITED TO ADD: I'm all set, thanks folks!
