YES! YES! Victory!

Praise to the spot-cream from Madame Ophelia’s Facial Maladies and Co.

Oh puberty, how I welcome thee with open arms.

I sometimes wonder what I’d look like older. For this, I look at the gaudy portraits of my ancestors that hang in the second floor gallery. One word: Bone structure. This is good, my baby fat that will be gone soon. Good good. Now, what am I to do about this hairy issue? Father was a well groomed man. His portrait depicts slicked black hair and sharp, bushy eyebrows.

Mother is impeccable.

Ironically, I feel my last name characterizes my appearance as well as heritage rather well: I’m Black through and through.

Now, if only I knew more about my family history…

There are books on Black family history in the library. You're so well-documented, it's scary.

Also, did you know that I'm your... I think... fourth cousin three times removed through marriage?

Not surprised at all.

The whole school is related in some way I bet.

I can personally assure you that you're not related to Snape any more closely than Miss Evans.

Well, my brother has always been a tad behind the times in terms of maturity.

I've got a present for you, and please send me a note stating how you wish for me to deliver it to you. Once you get it, please, either hit Sirius upside the head or drive him insane with it for me. Please respond as soon as possible.

Thank you for getting my name right, people rarely do. I will send it as soon as possible. Open the letter first, it will contain instuctions on how to deal with my owl.

I couldn't presume. It's left to actions to demonstrate where I am in different areas of maturity.

I think I started rather early, and the novelty has almost worn off. I'll be through with it eventually, and there we go.

Oh, and Sirius? We're brothers, perhaps we should talk more often.

Society tends to place greater expectation on males and thus drive them to lower depths.

Well, okay, generally girls are more engaging to be around.

No offense meant to my gender as a whole, just the majority.

I understand what you mean, it's so hard to pick up on those emotional cues though dried ink text, no matter how magical.
