Mayfield really is getting far too predictable. You can almost estimate the time of when it'll start being active again if there isn't a holiday around to appease it. These censuses remind me far too much of what happened at Christmas Time and I doubt any of us want a repeat of that. Except this time it seems to be about patriotism and birth rights.
I'm curious-- What is everyone else's thoughts on the matter?
As it stands, for any of the D.A. members if you find anything odd going on your street I'd like to ask you try and contact the rest of us. I'm still working on more efficient means for quick contact but, as it stands, I have very little of my ability to do so quite yet. I'd like to get a more permanent network set up for matters like this.It's also probably for the best to call another meeting as soon as possible. ...What with the newest bits I'd prefer to be overly prepared than under.
Seeing as the newest wave of arrivals has calmed down I suspect we should be seeing more in about two weeks. For now, if you're new I hope you've done... all right, despite the circumstances. Arrivals in Mayfield are nearly always anything but pleasant, thankfully quite a lot of people are good about greeting newcomers. If there's anyway I may help, I'd love to try. It's the least anyone can do in our current situation.
[A breath. OKAY TIME TO FINISH.]
If for some reason anyone needs me I'll be taking my shift at the library and then going over to the lake for a bit.
For those who might be curious Ron Weasley is still droned.
[ A C T I O N → library ]
[As she said, Hermione is indeed at the library. Putting the books back on their shelves and helping check people out, it's a ritual by now. Including scolding kids running throughout the area. But when she has time she's jotting away in a notebook. Take your pick.]
[ A C T I O N → lake ]
[The last time she had been to the lake was... her technical date with Ron. She hadn't come here since and avoided it since he was droned, but it was peaceful and Hermione did need time to think and work out her notes. Merlin, it almost reminded her of the times she spent at the Black Lake at Hogwarts... And speaking of Merlin, she met him of course.]
[For her time at the lake it's either sitting near the fishy smelling thing looking at the surface of it and thinking... Or she's reading a book she's picked up. Or, even, her head is bent over the journal she had at the library, hand flicking across as she wrote more notes or wrote other things. Other books, notebooks, papers, etc litter the ground around her and are all weighed down by rocks.]
[Yeah, she's totally distracted.]

About your ideas. Whatever Mayfield is planning with this census I believe it's a good idea we get them under way.

I finished the both of yours books. Thank you for allowing me to read them they were all interesting, in their own right. I'll be sure to bring them to your houses soon if you don't mind telling me when I can come over.
