Wow. My sister's pregnant.

She came to see me last night looking much with the nervous, beat around that proverbial bush for a while, and then finally told me. I'm not sure why she thought I wouldn't be okay with it. Maybe me of a couple years ago wouldn't have been, but I'm mostly grown up now. Sure, it felt a little weird when she first said the words, but I'm good. It'll be cool to have a little niece or nephew.

She was kinda tweaking me about hanging around here all the time, and so I decided I'm going out tonight. I wonder if there's anywhere to dance and hang out for people who aren't quite of age yet. I think I'll try to find out. I am bored of sitting around here all the time.

So Buff e-mailed me last night to tell me it was the twins' birthday and they didn't tell us. She wants to throw them a surprise party. Eighteen's a big deal! I wonder why they didn't say anything? I have almost another whole year to wait for 18.

We should get them a stripper! That could be a gift the rest of us would enjoy, too. ;)

Dawn wandered along the Riverwalk, watching barges float by on the river, enjoying the warmth of the mid-day sun on her bare arms. She had lived here almost a year, and New Orleans had not lost a bit of its charm. She could still spend hours in the Quarter, poking through the shops, eating her weight in beignets at Cafe du Monde, and just soaking in its unique ambiance. She could remember how odd it had seemed to her at first, but this town felt like home now.

School was out for the summer, and she'd done well, ending her junior year with four As and two Bs. She needed to figure out what she was going to do with herself all summer. Her Watcher training would occupy some of her time, although she was too young and inexperienced to actually be anyone's Watcher yet. Maybe she could get a job- she'd helped out at the Magic Box occasionally. She smiled, imagining the kind of reference Anya would have given her: "Yes, she worked here. She used to steal the merchandise sometimes." Ah, the klepto days. How angsty and confused she'd been back then.

She definitely needed to find the fun, as Faith would put it. She'd struck out on the boyfriend front so far, but maybe she'd meet someone interesting this summer. She could get a tattoo to go with her nose piercing. Maybe she'd finally get up the nerve to try alligator-on-a-stick. The possibilities were infinite.

I've been living in a building full of crazy people.

So glad to know it was just a spell. I mean, I've lost 4 pounds because I haven't wanted to come out of my room to eat dinner. I've also been spending a lot of time at my friend Caitlin's house. Buffy? Hasn't noticed squat. I could be shacked up with 15 Hell's Angels [uhhh... do they have Hell's Angels in New Orleans? Anyway.] filming porno movies and she would've been completely oblivious.

There's a meeting tonight that will hopefully explain some stuff. I've seen some interesting things around here this week.

I actually had a normal night out last night. Went to dinner and the movies with a couple of girls from school, didn't get home until really late. I should've been studying for finals, but I feel like I haven't been doing anything but study for weeks.

Then I got up this morning and saw Giles' post about Buffy being missing. Again. What exactly happened here last night?

all I want to do is be more like me and be less like you [May. 15th, 2004|01:31 am]

So, wow. Long time no write, huh? So much has happened, it seems weird that I would've had so little to say. But how do you explain your sister marrying her former watcher, your other sort-of sister suddenly being 12 years older because of a spell that went horribly wrong, or even your boyfriend breaking up with you because you've 'grown apart'... whatever that means?

Well, I guess if you're me, you don't. I think I needed a break from the whole online journaling experience. Even if I spent a lot of that break lying on my bed staring at the ceiling, hearing the occasional clip-clop of horse-drawn carriages out in the street at night, wondering what brought me to this place. Well, duh, I know that technically it's because Sunnydale fell down and went boom; I'm not entirely stupid. I guess I mean, what brought me to this place in my mind? I've had terrible things happen to me in the past couple of years, but then so have a lot of other people. Why did I just give up on everything for a little while? I don't think I've even talked to Ingrid since she's been back or met the newest potential slayers who've shown up here.

I'm fine with the stuff that's happened, even though yeah, it's weird that McKenna is older than Buffy now, and I wonder sometimes if we're going to have to expand and build apartments on the roof to accomodate the new SITs that keep arriving. And, you know, not that I have any hard feelings or anything... but I've thought and thought about it, and I don't think Kincaid was nearly as interested in me as he pretended to be.

Anyway, none of that matters, because I'm just me. Dawn Summers, 17, one nasal piercing, one hole in each ear, double-jointed, intuitive, reasonably intelligent and pretty much okay with all of that. I'm not so willing to change myself so people will like me anymore. Maybe all that isolation and deliberation had a purpose after all.

I just have to get through finals next week, and then school will be out, and I get to decide what to do with my summer. Yay?

It's been kind of weird around here lately. My birthday passed with no fuss, which was kinda the way I wanted it. Everyone was all worried and everything, what with McKenna doing the whole running away thing and then Anne losing her soul.

God, things really are weird.

I'm 17 years old and I guess I realise that I really am getting older. I know that's a kind of weird thought but it's like... Last year, I mentioned my birthday at the drop of a hat. Three weeks before, even, just so I could say that I'd mentioned it if they happened to forget.

Now? I just... It doesn't bother me as much as it used to. I remember Mom and Buffy and I used to do the whole 'spending the day together' thing on our birthday. We'd get up, have breakfast together and then go shop. It was fun. But since Mom... Well, we don't really do that any more. I guess it'd be too werid without Mom here.

School's been kicking my butt. Of course Buffy and Giles have been on their super-efficient kick of getting me to work harder and concentrate on my Watcher-Training which, I guess is okay. If they didn't push me I'd probably turn into, like, slacker extraordinaire or something.

*shakes head*

Speaking of, I guess I'd better go hit the books again. No rest for the wicked, or... Y'know, the once-wicked but sorta-nice now.

Wow, so tomorrow's my birthday. I'm not sure if anyone remembers. Nobody's mentioned it to me. I'll be 17.

I guess you know you're growing up when you don't think so much about what you want. Like presents. I mean, what I'd really like is a little bit of peace and security. I'd like to jam a stake right through freaking Anne's heart for scaring McKenna like she did. I'd like to actually see my boyfriend once in a while. I'd like a break from real life.

Yeah, right. I'm sure I'll get that one.

Nothing's turning out like I'd hoped.

School's been really hard so far this semester, and I've been buried in homework. I know Kincaid's started back to school as well, and even though he's living here, I think I've seen him less than when he wasn't.

I've been trying to get more into my Watcher Training, too. The battle last week has showed me that I need it. I thought I was over being icked out at the sight of blood, but, kinda not. I don't want to go through that again any time soon. Maybe I just need to relax or something.
