Those fairy things were troublesome, but they remind me of the imps from back home. I suppose if a magician ordered an imp to capture his enemy's teeth, it would happen.

... As to why a magician would want to exact that sort of revenge, I have no bloody idea. But there were some bizarre ones to be found in London, so.

I was not amused by yesterday's curse.

At all.

I wouldn't have minded so much if Kitty were here.

That being said, the deities' ploy to get me to tan was unsuccessful. I'm English; I'm supposed to be pale.

My hundredth entry in this City and what is it used for?

Nothing so momentous as the return of someone from my world or perhaps a breakthrough in a social life research but simply?

Reporting the subsequent madness of the police force.

I woke up this morning to this creature at the foot of my bed.

... Well, he seems quite harmless.

Has anyone lost a dog?

And in the meantime, does... anyone know what I should feed him?

[ooc; I almost went for the lion. XD But nah, Nathaniel, being English, has gotten a bulldog for the day!]

... I feel like utter shite.

Is it possible to suffer from an ice cream hangover?

Enough's enough. If Bartimaeus were here, he'd goad my lazy arse into doing something other than living like a hermit for the past few months. Ridiculous. I've never been in a sorrier state, Kitty would—

...nngh, bugger, where to...

But I really don't see the point of just wandering the streets aimlessly until I bump into someone. I'm past the whole 'shopping' phase, ugh, God forbid that urge posses me again.

Maybe a job of some sort? But there's no semblence of an actual government here, so what good... Well, there is a library, so perhaps...

Er. How long has this been record—?

Ah, hello? If there's anyone that knows if the library's in need of some help?

Ravenclaw, eh?

Well, judging by what this... hat and this young woman's entry say, I'm not too surprised.

It took a lot of work to become the magician I am. But I understand now why I was almost Sorted—is that the word?—into that other group, Slytherin. I am not proud of what John Mandrake did to achieve greatness in Parliament and London, however rewarding it was.

Mm. But Ravenclaw. That's quite fitting for me. For Nathaniel.

Getting blood out of white Oxford shirts... as if this isn't the first time. If it weren't for the concern of having absolutely nothing to wear ...


I hope everyone's recovered from yesterday's curse?

[ooc; The wound that helped kill him crippled him from the computer yesterday. He did die, but he's as alive as City!dead can be and grumbling about his sheets and clothes now. XD]

My apologies for being absent lately.

It seems the most recent curse regarding the Mirror City affected me in such a way that I couldn't get to a computer and make any sort of post. Nevertheless, I'm fine now, and back where I should be - both physically and mentally.

It seems like we've got quite a few new arrivals in the City. Welcome, I suppose.

... I've been quite unproductive outside of my own research. Perhaps a job, then.

Yes, I have always been this thin.

Yes, I am eating properly.

No, I do not need any fattening up. I assure you, madam, I am not neglected or suffering from malnutrition. Thank you.

For the love of God, this damned curse...

[ooc; RUNNING TO SCHOOL! But will reply as soon as I can. ♥ ]
