1 Muffins

I sometimes wonder why I’m in love with someone who doesn’t like me and who loves the one thing I despise (meaning quidditch).

I think I might have been dropped on my head as a baby.

2 Born To Run

Why is he smiling? Does he not see the way she's glaring at him? 

Run Scorpius! Run!

Scorpius doesn't move.

3 An Actual Tug of War

"So why do you have a thing for my older brother?" Al asks, changing the subject back, "I mean sure, he's good looking, and girls practially throw themselves at him..."

Ah yes, just a little more salt into the wound? Great, thanks.

4 The Mark Wood Complaint Association

I honestly fear for the female population of Hogwarts, if this is what they're attracted to. A pig headed man child with the brains of a giant squid and the emotional maturity of a baby flobberworm.

Which is apparently mind-blowingly sexy.

5 Rock Bottom

This kid should have been in slytherin. I'm serious.

Look at that grin! That's totally I-want-to-kill-you-in-your-sleep material.

6 Decisions, Decisions

I think that even if I found the cure for cancer, baked each individual Gryffindor student a cake and got on my knees to beg for forgiveness in front of the entire school they'd still act as though I'd personally resurrected Voldemort from the dead.

7 Silver Linings

Why isn't she a blonde ditz? Why can't I make fun of her? This is exceedingly irritating.

8 Hogsmede

Rose shoots me a gleeful look, "You may now bow down to me."

I snort, "Oh wise one, let me honour your wisdom that shall forever surpass my own."

"Please, Stella, don't make a scene."

9 Lessons from James

Ah, Fluxweed.

My very own form of escapism.

10 Confrontation

He shrugs, oozing self confidence, "I think I'm pretty gangster."

I snort, "Fred, you are quite possibly the least gangster person-"

He puts a finger to my lips, "Hush, vanilla."

11 Thump Thump Thump

“Look, Stella,” Fred laughs, “The day James starts helping me with homework is the day I stop being awesome, and we all know, that’s not happening any time soon.”

12 Idiocy Thy Name Is Stella

Oh God, did I say that out loud?

13 Place Your Bets

Note to self: Rose is evil. She is not trustworthy. The next time that she tries to trick you into going downstairs by telling you there are free muffins, don't fall for it.

14 Liquid Courage and Clichés

 "You'd be grumpy too if the girl of your dreams had just punched you in the face."

15 Brave

"Oh," Is all that comes out of my mouth.

Thanks brain, very helpful. I'm sure Encycolpedia Britannica is applauding your eloquence.

16 New Year's Resolutions

 Ugh, why is he such a good guy? Seriously, it's disgusting.

17 Black and White

It's working out brilliantly. Really. I've realised that not confronting problems works out really well for people.

I know, I understand. It's only natural to be jealous of my genius.

18 The Pity Party

Fred nods, "I like to think I was a nun in a past life."

19 The Times Have Changed

"She really likes you!"

"That's funny," he mutters, looking unaffected by this information, "The last time I asked her to be my girlfriend she screamed at me in front of the entire common room."

20 Cold Shoulder

 If there's one thing I hate, it's crowds.

I mean, apart from my hatred of heights, waking up early in the morning, essay writing, Potions class, spiders, rainy days, motion sickness, sunburn, toothache, and Mrs Norris. Oh, and grapefruit. I really hate grapefruit.

But if you forget all those things, crowds can be a real pain.

21 The Truth Part I

"I'm tired."
"Lazy, Stella. The word you're looking for is lazy."

22 The Truth Part II

 Either I was in love or I was crazy.

I guess he must have just assumed I was crazy.

23 Talking

This isn't one of my Aunt Trudy's romance novels. You know, the one with the guys with washboard abs and perfect hair were holding up women in long ball gowns that fell off their shoulders, who swooned as though the guy's sexiness was just too much for their feeble feminine legs to handle.
