Kind of an odd question, but does anyone know if we're going to have another retreat this year? I'm afraid I came in kind of late or I missed the news or something like that. I know it's a ways off, but... [ He's so boredddddd. ]

[/filter]

I think my cat got into my journal. It feels... different somehow. Lighter, perhaps? I don't think Raphael would be able to rip pages or anything like that, but short of that... I'll see if I can't figure it out. Has anyone else had this happen?

[Filtered to Dean:]

Can I ask you something?
onlyapparate: (reading journals is a manly hobby)
Well, thankfully that crazy journal business is over. I hear some people were getting attacked? That's unfortunate. My journal seemed to be taking pity on me very affectionate, to be honest. I suppose it doesn't blame me for losing it those times earlier in the year.

In any case, it's worth mentioning that I've taken in a second cat, at least partially. I think? Castiel entrusted Lilith to me, and although she's blind, you'd never guess that by how she acts. She and Raphael fight almost constantly, but they're from the same litter, so it's playful I hope. I've had to separate her and Raphael several times now; he's much larger than her, since she's been alone all this time... I sincerely hope the two get along eventually. Well, Lilith seems to particularly enjoy being around Castiel, so maybe if she only sleeps and eats in my room, it will be alright.

...It's a little funny; at the beginning of the school year, I never would have guessed I'd be dealing with two kittens and a still headstrong owl. Cats are... well, they're certainly a handful. [unhackable (50% to Maron)] At least it gives me something to think about outside of Yukimi and... less pleasant things. [/unhackable]

Speaking of owls, Anna finally decided to give me the invitation to the Teacher's Conference. It's in Monaco!? H-how are we even going to get there...? Please don't say "portkey," please.

Private. Unless you're Castiel, Maron or Kallen. In which case, you can probably hack like three words of this. Oh and Gabe can hack it too, BUT Thobari didn't exactly plan that. )

I actually have something I wanted to ask you as well, if you don't mind...
onlyapparate: (what's wrong now?)
[ A whole page of scrawled notes on funerals. LOTS OF IT IS SCRATCHED OUT, mostly the parts that remind him too much of his grandmother's. And his grandfather's. Which is almost everything. Oh, and he doesn't realize he posted that, so feel free to ask him what all the chicken-scratch is about. ]

I think... Raphael actually likes me? I was doing some research on cats among other things and found that some "use biting as a cleaning method." So maybe Raphael doesn't hate me after all. That's sweet. Sort of. I suppose now I have to warm up the idea that he's going to keep biting me for as long as he sees me as his owner.

Maybe I'll start wearing gloves.

[Private to Castiel (but I guess Gabe can hack it, since, you know.)]
I'm alright with planning the ceremony into the school year, but... Should I set up a list of people you'd like to attend?

[100% Unhackable, sorry Gabe.]
And, uhm, if it's alright for me to ask, what was it that made you decide you wanted to go through with this? If you're having second thoughts, it's alright to simply call it off...
onlyapparate: (hoping for something)
It's been a quiet week at the Castle, hasn't it? Has anyone seen Kallen around? I haven't heard from her...

I'm... still around, I suppose. Staying positive and working with Raphael on surpassing his biting phase. He listens to me now, which is an improvement, but... [ pauuuse for sighs. ] I don't think he and Anna will ever get along.

At least the Castle hasn't pulled anything strange recently. Though I hear we have a new poltergeist, so maybe I've just been lucky.

Lucky, huh...? Yeah.....

How're things for everyone else?

[[strikes hackable, my broskis.]]
onlyapparate: (I worry about you sometimes)
Well... It's been a hard couple days, but I've been managing. Keeping myself busy... between Raphael and my DADA preparations, I'm fully aware that I'm trying to distract myself from the problem here. [ Here there's a nervous laugh. ] I can't very well hide, can I? That's not who I am anymore so...

Kallen? Could I speak to you? In person, preferably. I'm in my office, but I can go to you if that would be more comfortable.

[ pause. pause. still recording here, Tobi. ]

Oh! And... Professor Bainbridge, I got the supplies you ordered. Would you like me to take them down later?
onlyapparate: (why do I fail so hard)
[Filtered to Kallen;]
Kallen, I... Are you alright? You left in such a hurry that I... Did I do something wrong?
[/Filter]

Raphael's demeanor has improved a bit. I think it has to do with the fact that I've so far protected him from Anna. I don't know what that says about me, of course, protecting Castiel's killer from what sounds like the only woman he ever cared about... I still don't think I should take him home as he is; it's taken him long enough to adjust to my office and my chambers; I don't think a kitten his age should be moved around quite so much.

As for Anna, she seems very restless lately. I've been sending her out on a lot of miscellaneous errands to get her out of my office, but insofar it hasn't worked much. She's always squawking at Raphael (when she isn't trying to attack him) and quite honestly, it's starting to worry me. And since sending her to the Owlry isn't an option, well...

Is anyone good with pets? Spencer's busy, and not many people are left in the castle, so... Castiel? You named them, right? Would it be too soon to ask for your assistance?

[[ strikes not hackable. Also, my internet has been really unreliable lately, so expect sporadic replies :< ]]
onlyapparate: (tch.)
Well, summer is well underway and already I'm back at Hogwarts. The kittens Castiel found are indeed a bit... lively. Mine won't stop biting me; I had to tear off a bit of an old robe and give it to him to nibble on, but it looks it's going to take a while to train this out of him. And I don't know the first thing about cats, really. How do you train cats?

I'm actually a little worried that he might not get along well with Anna, my owl. She's possessive of me enough already, if I take a kitten home, she might attack. Am I that bad with animals? If that happens... I suppose I'm going to have to keep them separated.
