The Diary of Bellatrix Black

7th year slytherin prefect and head girl

Bellatrix Black
9 November
i'm in slytherin!

My name is Bellatrix Black, and I am a 7th year student at Hogwarts School. I am also a House Prefect, and of course, a Slytherin, as most members of my illustrious and most ancient family have been in the past. Toujour Pur, afterall. Well, mostly, anyhow. One can never account for why people like my cousin Sirius turn up in even the best of families. I suppose it only helps the cream rise to the top, and I intend to do just that.

After Hogwarts, I don't plan on having a career per se. I'm not interested in the drugery of work, and frankly my family has enough money that I don't need to worry about it. Right now I'm just focusing on my study of the Dark Arts, my true passion. I am also a great admirer of Tom Riddle, or Voldemort as he is calling himself now. Someone with my skills, ancestry, and personal... shall we say charm? would definately be an asset to him, I imagine.

For those interested, here are some extra details about me. My wand is 13 1/2 inches, made of Blackthorn wood, with a core of Thestral hair. This isn't the sort of thing you can find at Ollivander's. I purhcased it at a shop in Knockturn Alley. I also have a raven named Morrigan.

And... don't tell (because if you tell I will throw the nastiest curse I know at you... trust me I can be absolutely torturous) but I have a tremendous crush on Severus Snape, as I have since my first year. I think its hopeless, and that's not a feeling I'm used to, but when I want something I go after it, so I will do just that.

To the left you will see a picture of me now. Ravishing, yes? And, to the right a picture from my first year. The internet is so provincial. Why, the portraits aren't even alive!
