Happy Birthday, Darling! Date: 23 August 2006 Characters: Morag Dolohova, Percy Weasley Location: Hogsmeade Private/Public: Private Rating: G Warnings: well, the present is illegal...but only to Umbridge Summary: Morag sends over Percy's birthday greetings. Note: The tag says owl but it was delivered by Nikita.
I know I'm late, and I'm so sorry! I totally lost track of the time, which is quite easy to do when mostly you eat and try to find a comfortable position and sleep. But I am sorry!
Happy birthday! I hope Cass did his job and made the day wonderful for you. If he didn't, don't tell me because I might be tempted to take him to task so it's better all 'round if I don't know. You're actually getting two gifts from me. The gift I want you to have is a trip to our villa near Astrakos in Greece. You can have the place for as long as you like, and if you are interested in sailing, we have a friend with a nice little boat down there that can take you out for as long a trip as you'd like. I know the boat is nice because it used to be ours, and I've sailed it.
Now, I know Cass isn't ready for a trip like that, and you aren't likely to be sent off easily at the moment, so I'm giving you a second gift. Just don't forget about the first one, will ya?
The second gift is an interesting one. I've given you a membership to a Muggle mystery book club. I've made all the arrangements. The books are delivered each month to one of our offices, and they'll be brought to you by one of our elves so little Miss Xenophobic Control Freak doesn't need to know anything at all about the whole thing. I've sent along the first month's books. I've requested a variety selection each month....one should be something called a 'gumshoe' novel, one that is supposed to be something related to 'forensics', one is supposed to be whatever is new in the group of best-selling authors, and one is supposed to be something related to the 'paranormal'. I figured the Muggle idea of the paranormal might be good for a laugh, if nothing else. And I know you're familiar with forensics...I just hope you understand 'gumshoe' because that's a new one on me.
Lots of love to my baby's Uncle Percy, Morag
P.S. I hope I didn't ruin your birthday with that last part!
