The fuck?


I know it's a crossword, but are you doing a Middle English crossword?

The Prophet's crosswords get progressively harder over the course of the week, so we're into the trickiest parts of it, now.

I'll bet you're right about the Middle English, though. The excessive vowels are a bit of a clue -- probably some old haggish reference.

Sworn book, though? I thought Bible but that's too short. Thebible? Isn't that cheating? On their part. Fucking Prophet.

Sworne Booke. That bit's important, I know it is. Fuck, I wish we'd had a better History of Magic professor. I probably learned all about the bloody thing.
Fabian Prewett: need a haircut. bad.fabium on August 21st, 2007 05:07 am (UTC)
No fucking clue. Can you cheat at the crossword?

No! Absolutely not!
Fabian Prewett: slightly smiley.fabium on August 21st, 2007 05:14 am (UTC)
I bet you can and you WANT to if you haven't already. Go on, it's driving me mad! WHAT IS THIS BOOK.
Marlene McKinnon: the only soldier now is meanticlaw on August 21st, 2007 05:17 am (UTC)
I do not cheat!

A huge tome, then.
Marlene McKinnon: the only soldier now is meanticlaw on August 21st, 2007 05:04 am (UTC)
Please. That's Witch Weekly material.
Gilderoy Lockhart!!: best smile of 1979!!obsidere on August 21st, 2007 05:06 am (UTC)
SO YOU READ WITCH WEEKLY!! Did you know that I was nominated for their Best Coiffed Hair award? I was.
Marlene McKinnon: i'm fighting things i cannot seeanticlaw on August 21st, 2007 05:10 am (UTC)
I do not read Witch Weekly.
Gilderoy Lockhart!!: ridiculously good-looking.obsidere on August 21st, 2007 05:12 am (UTC)
You should, plum, I'll be gracing their cover soon enough!!
Marlene McKinnon: her mocking smile says it allanticlaw on August 21st, 2007 05:15 am (UTC)
No doubt you will. They never did have very high standards -- catering to a mindless crowd, you see.

Not that the Prophet is much better, of course, but at least they make a fucking effort to keep up appearances.
Gilderoy Lockhart!!: best smile of 1979!!obsidere on August 21st, 2007 05:22 am (UTC)
Oh my! I knew you believed in me, plum. Rest assured, Gilderoy Lockhart does not forget about the little people!!
Marlene McKinnon: the only soldier now is meanticlaw on August 21st, 2007 05:23 am (UTC)
Mind that you don't, because they're going to rise up and strangle your lavender-scented arse the eventually.

Sir, I will give you a handjob if you ever make it into ANY publication that isn't a wanted criminal listing or the Hogwarts alumni/ae newsletter.

Glorious! You will not regret this decision!!
Fabian Prewett: slightly off?fabium on August 21st, 2007 05:22 am (UTC)
I think I will, but I reserve the right to wear a glove and not look directly at you!

I don't see why not.
