Grim Fawley's Journal - Shard 1
A journal entry written in the small, cramped handwriting of Grim Fawley:
"There's a rumour of a very old, outlawed spell meant to find what one desires most... and I may have found it. I don't believe it will bring Penelope back. Not on its own. But maybe I can combine it..."
Grim Fawley's Journal - Shard 2
Grim's handwriting is cramped and frantic in a page of his journal:
"don't know if it's the Love Room that's causing it, but I feel closer to you here, Nel. When I'm in here, I KNOW you're alive. It's as if you're just on the other side of the door, and all I have to do is open it. Is this spell the key?"
Grim Fawley's Journal - Shard 3
A note written in swirling handwriting:
"Now, what would Greengrass think if I told him that his protege was skulking about the Love Room after hours? I didn't think you'd be so quick to move on... but... Your secret's safe with me. Remember to be careful, Grim. The next time it may not be me who finds you in there sleeping.
Grim Fawley's Journal - Shard 4
An entry in Grim's journal:
"Nel. It's killing me. You always said I was stronger than I knew, but I don't know how to be strong without you. Harry told me to trust in the Aurors, but they are failing. Miserably. And they are staying so safe...
Everything is by the book. If there was something I could do... some kind of magic to bring you back, I'd use it in a heartbeat."
