The gall - [Lily grips her Willow wand tightly, sending a flashing blue light at a small end table. It transforms into large vase and a bouquet of flowers. (And, yes, each flower is a lily in various shades - red, white, orange, yellow etc..)]

How can he assume he has the right to - ! [She stops herself by biting the tip of her tongue, angry tears welling in her eyes.] He didn't pay me one iota of attention when I arrived and now he thinks I'll just roll over and let him have my son?! The one I died for?

[Lily buries her fingers in her thick hair, green eyes flashing.]

I'm an adult. I'm a mother. He has no right to treat me like a child. I don't bloody care if he thinks all Gryffindors are idiots. [She collapses onto a chair and tries to control her rage for the first time.] That's right. Do you hear me, Severus Snape? Stop it.

{OOC: This was recorded during the few hours that Harry was with Snape.}

[Lily is standing in the middle of a room, looking perplexed. Her comm is obviously balanced on something like a dresser.]

I could have sworn I was - [Somewhere else. She might have even been working.] Did this happen to anyone else? [She scratches the back of her neck, frowning. Her wand is clutched in her right hand.] James? Sirius? Tonks? Let me know if you made the transition in one piece.

[There's a brief pause and Lily glances at the camera, her green eyes intense.] I'd like to hear from you too, Momiji and Vivi.

[She worries her lower lip before slowly walking around the room.]

Everything looks the same. [She touches some knickknacks.] But it feels different. It feels like...

I just arrived all over again.

[Aren't you lucky, Cape and Cowl? Lily is treating you to a lesson on Charms. This is something she tends to do when her mind is occupied with a confusing jumble of things and/or emotions. During her First Year, she learned that there was something about casting spells and letting her witchy nature run free that relaxes her.

As each spell comes to life, Lily moulds her Magic into small works of beauty. She isn't someone who takes any motion of her wand or any syllable on her tongue for granted. She is proud of her heritage - if one can even call it that - so she treats each spell with individual care.

When she reaches some of the more complex spells, she lowers her wand and breathes out.]

My birthday is this month. I suppose I'll be...twenty-two. [Her brow furrows.] That isn't an important age to most people, but - [It is to her. She wasn't meant to reach it.] I'd like to celebrate it. I know everyone has their own lives and their own priorities, but if you're free - and we've spoken before - I'd love for you to spend the day with me. Or even just part of the day.

Actually, even if we haven't spoken before, I'd like to get to know you. I like making new friends where I can. [She smiles, soft and sweet.] The more, the merrier, right?
[identity profile]
[Though it's dark, Lily is mostly visible - thanks to the light coming off of her wand. She is pressing a hand to her forehead and wincing.]

That is the last time I sleep on that side of the bed. [Throwing back the blankets, she picks up her communicator and stands up.] How on earth am I going to make -

[She turns on the light in another room, searching through a cabinet.]

I'd rather use a headache potion, but I guess I will have to settle for aspirin. [But, of course, she can't find the bottle. Setting her communicator down, she sighs heavily and leans her forehead against the cool wall.] No more pounding. Stop it. You're making me sound... [A yawn.] ...mad.
[identity profile]
It will be strange spending Christmas in the city. How do you cope with it? Are there group gatherings or does everyone just...celebrate in their own way?

I admit I'm curious about other traditions. This is a magical time of year no matter how you look at it.

[Lily switches to voice or the next part...]

[Fail Privacy to James, Sirius and Remus.]

What are you lot planning, hm? Does it involve Firewhiskey? If it does, I'm going to have to ask you to give me your communicators now. No one needs to hear drunken caroling.

[There's something in her tone that gives away her amusement at the very thought.]

[identity profile]
[Thankfully, Lily looks much more comfortable in her new home. She is wrapped in a blanket and sipping on a hot cup of tea. There are still dark circles under her eyes and she looks...perpetually wary. Almost as if she is expecting her nightmares to crawl out of the walls and surround her.]

Harry... [She says the name lovingly and softly.] I'm so sorry. [A few tears fall down her cheeks.] I never intended to leave you. I wanted to stay with you always. But...

Even if I'm not there...

You are so loved. [An oddly bright smile touches her lips.] Grow up, be strong and don't be afraid of anything. You were meant to survive that night. [She closes her eyes and leans back.] Your life will be filled with miracles. I know it.
[identity profile]
[This might be a disturbing scene - considering the video turns on and shows someone who looks, well, dead. But don't worry. It isn't long before Lily inhales shakily, though the breath looks painful.]

Nnn y-you bastard... [She whispers, her voice pained.] H-Harry? J-James? [Forcing herself to sit up, the redhead grabs her wand, which miraculously, traveled with her. She raises it and examines it, her brow furrowing. It had been in the nursery, but it hadn't been where she could have easily grabbed it - especially considering Voldemort was between her and it. Besides, there was no way in hell that she would have left Harry unprotected.]

At least I...h-have this. [She looks around, finally noticing the communicator. Rubbing a hand over her face, she bites her lip and tries to think. But her body is so sore and she's not in the cottage anymore. In fact, she's -]

Where am I? [Clearing her throat, Lily tries again.] Can anyone hear me?

[First, there is a a brief video of a stag sliding its way through a bar and just generally wreaking havoc. And once that's over, Lily Potter appears, looking like she can't decide whether to laugh, to be frustrated, or to be embarrassed. Oh, the choices. The emotions. It's tough, to be the wife of James Potter sometimes. But there is one thing she knows. And now, everyone else is going to know it, too.]

James Potter, you are in so much trouble right now.

[Because really, you don't turn yourself into a stag and then go ruining people's nights (and bars). That's just bad manners!]

So, question time, everyone! What would you do if you were hypothetically married to an insane man who, every once in a while, turned into a stag and destroyed things for the fun of it? I'm leaning towards "grounding him for life," personally.
[identity profile]
[The camera clicks on, and it’s focused on a very confused looking woman, who seems more focused on investigating the camera than actually talking to it.]

Is this thing actually on? I’m not entirely sure. But then, I suppose that’s something else I can add to the list of things I’m not entirely sure about at the moment. Other items on the list include where I am, how I got here, and who’s going to change Harry’s diapers if I’m not there to do it for him. I suppose James could always do it, but I’m not sure I want to put up with the complaining about the smell again. The last time, he wouldn’t stop talking about it for what seemed like days.

No, he isn’t an extra-smelly human dungbomb, he’s a baby, and all poo smells like that.

[She blinks, and, if possible, looks even more confused than she did when she started talking.] I can’t believe I actually just said that. Actually, I can’t believe I’m sitting here, rambling about poo when there are far more important things to worry about.

I don’t suppose anyone who can hear me and hasn’t been scared off by all of my diaper talk can tell me where I am? I’d appreciate it.

[Lily turns on the camera, a bright smile on her face. She was determined to completely ignore her missing wand in favour of something more fun]

H'lo, Sirius. Remus. I know this is a little late (done so on purpose, of course, to make it less predictable) but I want to have a birthday party for James. He's probably already had who knows how many celebrations, but I'd like to have one for him, and I'd really appreciate it if you two would help me.

Thanks, guys.

[Our favourite redhead is looking a bit paler than usual, and her facial expression keeps shifting from tired to scared]

H'lo, everyone. Sorry I've been away. Something's happened, and I've been trying to get to the bottom of it, but so far I've been unable to.

If anyone knows anything about identifying and tracking down people, I would really appreciate it if you would help me. I think I have some things that might mean more to a skilled person than they do to me.

Anyway, I apologize again for my absence, and I hope to be around more often.

[A moment before the camera turns off, she looks as if she's about to break down, but then the screen goes black]

 So I woke up this morning, and I suddenly remembered the last time I was here....

Strange, right?

Anyway, I just wanted to apologize to you all for not remembering who you were. If it had happened the other way around, I know I would have been really upset, so I'm really sorry if I upset anyone.

On a completely unrelated note, I feel like going out today. Anyone interested in accompanying me?
[identity profile]
“Not Harry! Please….have mercy….Not Harry! Please—I’ll do anything!”

[A green flash filled Lily’s vision as a horrible scream left her. She had nothing left. James was dead, she was dead, and Voldemort would surely kill Harry next. A moment later, she was standing inside Stark Tower (not that she recognized it) In front of the slightly obscured camera- as it's in her pocket and she doesn't know it's on- is a slightly older Lily Evans, only this time she's technically Lily Potter. Her expression goes from heartbroken to confused as she realizes she has no idea where she is]

Wh-where am I? Hello? Can anyone hear me?

[She took the silence as a no and decided to follow the exit signs out of the building. Maybe she’d be able to figure out what was going on if she got outside]
[identity profile]
Hey guys! Today's the big day. You're welcome to come over whenever you want, and I'll see you when you get here.
[identity profile]
[Lily turns on the camera, a bright smile on her face]

Hullo, James. Sirius. Sanji. I just wanted to let you know that I'm having a film marathon at my apartment on my birthday, and you three are welcome to join me. There will be delicious cake, or, at least, that's what Sanji claims, and I'll probably make some popcorn too. Remus is, of course, welcome to come too, but I want to keep this a small affair.

[She gives the camera a pointed look, most likely directed at James]

Let me know if you'd like to come.

[Lily blew a kiss to the camera before turning it off]

[Lily turns on the camera, doing her best to smile like she usually does]

Hullo, everyone. I'm sorry I haven't been around much. With my birthday coming up, I've been a bit....distracted, I suppose you could say. If I was back home, it would only be five years until I....

[She turns her head from the camera, not wanting anyone to see the tears in her eyes. It wasn't fair that she and James wouldn't get to live a long and happy life together. Taking a deep breath, she turns back to the camera, the smile pasted back on her face]

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I haven't gone anywhere just yet.

[The camera flicks off without so much as a 'bye' from Lily]
[identity profile]
[The camera turns on to show loads of trees and plenty of snow. Lily seems to be wandering around Central Park- which normally wouldn't be strange at all if not for the fact that she is being accompanied by a rather large stag. She is talking softly to him, occasionally petting him with a smile. To an outside observer, this would seem very strange, but to those who recognize Prongs, it is no doubt a long-awaited scene. Eventually Lily notices the camera is switched on, and with a heavy blush she apologizes before turning it off]
[identity profile]
[Lily turns on the camera, looking a bit flustered]

Hey guys. I need your help with something. I've just been out shopping for various Christmas presents- before you even ask, Sirius, I'm not telling you what I got you-, and I realized that I have no idea what I could get for James.

If either of you have any suggestions, it'd be brilliant to hear them.

[Lily gave a quick smile before turning the camera off]

[The camera turns on to show a smiling Lily, the flush on her cheeks showing she'd just been outside a while in the cold]

Hello everyone. I just wanted to let you all know that (with Remus and Edgeworth's permission of course) it has been suggested that the party I was planning to have with Sirius and James be combined with the dinner being held.

Barring any significant complaints, this will most likely be what's going to happen. Naturally, if you were invited and planning to come to my party, you will be most welcome to come to the dinner.

Hope to see you all there.

[She gives another smile before turning off the camera]

I find myself feeling rather restless today. I haven't been out of the house in a while, and it's driving me nuts.

Anyone interested in taking a walk or going somewhere or anything? I NEED to get out and get some fresh air.
[identity profile]
 Hello everyone!

As I'm sure you all know, tomorrow is the first day of December. As such, I'd like to make a little announcement.

I am planning on holding a Christmas party the week before the 25th, and everyone is invited.

At the moment- since these plans are relatively new- I haven't figured out where it's going to be held just yet, so if anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

Also, because there happen to be a fair few people in this city, I'll need help with the organizing and set-up and whatnot for the party. (James and Sirius, you're helping me. You get no say in the matter.)

Anyway, I will keep you all updated on the progress of the party, and hope to see you all there.

 Right. So I've heard a lot about a holiday called "Thanksgiving". Apparently it's only celebrated in America, but as I'm in America, I'd feel loads better knowing some more about it.

What I've been able to gather so far is that it has something to do with Native Americans and turkey, and that it's on a Thursday in November every year. I'm assuming there's more to it than that, otherwise it's a really stupid idea of a holiday.

Regardless, if someone who knows anything about it could get back to me, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

[the camera is turned on, showing a beautiful young girl of about sixteen. she has long red hair, bright green eyes, and a slightly confused smile on her face]

I'm not really sure what's just happened. I was on my way down to the dungeons for Potions class when I ended up here. There's a large tower that I've just walked out of, but I can't see any other distinctive landmarks. I assumed this was some kind of a joke at first, but I'm starting to doubt that. This place seems like it's a long way away from Hogwarts, and the accents are different. I think I might be in America.

[she tucks a lock of hair behind her ear, looking away from the camera a minute before looking back]

This is some sort of communication network, right? If it is, I'd be glad to know that I'm not the only witch here. It's scary enough not knowing where I am, but being alone? That's much, much worse.

I'm hoping that if I wander around a bit I'll find someone interesting to talk to, or maybe even someone I know. But the odds of that don't seem terribly great at the moment.

Anyway, if you're a witch or wizard or even just someone friendly to talk to, it'd be great to hear from you.

[she gives one last smile before the camera is shut off]
