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: (mudkip I choose you!)
Everyone, I hope we're all staying calm after this strange turn of events. It seems the Castle transported us to different point in time. I checked my calendar, and it claims this is 2010, to be exact. It's hard to believe, I know. And although some of you are not here with the best intentions, I think it's safe to say that whatever magic occurred will revert itself soon enough, just as it always does. So try not to panic. Trust me, I've been working here for a while now.

What this means is, it's safe to assume that our children are safe at home, as it's likely that only people in Hogwarts ten years ago were affected. So I won't get mad at you, Yukimi, because it's not your fault you left Dawn at home.

Since that's the case, let's try and think back to what we were like ten years ago! It seems like such a long time ago, doesn't it? Times were a lot simpler then... I was single, for one thing...
onlyapparate: (no one looooves me)


So... It's obvious we've... switched bodies. Somehow. I'd like to ask everyone to remain calm. If the Castle is indeed to blame for this, then it'll likely wear off soon.

This looks like... Miss Fa? I'm doing my best not to startle your family, but they're finding it hard to believe that I'm a professor...

...I guess this puts a bit of a damper on my summer plans.
onlyapparate: (ohmygod WHAT IS THAT)
[ The writing is kinda scrawled, like he's fighting himself to write or something. ]

What's going on? Everyone, I--

[ off-key singing, you has it now. ]

I won't tell nobody
I'll just scream it in my mind
Nothing good in life is scripted
It's not like we predicted
That the one you want
Is gonna be the one you thought


[Filtered to Yukimi. That's right.]
I won't tell nobody
But I won't live like a prisoner
Nothing has to be so perfect
Can you tell me was it worth it?
Because her heart can't lie
And even though her face may try
Love can keep you up all night

[ooc; in the end, I couldn't resist starting with a Backstreet Boys song; Love Will Keep You Up All Night.]

Well now, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to all our guests!

Since most of you are fresh faces, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Thobari Durandal Kumohira (I'm half-Japanese) and I teach Defense Against the Dark Arts to all our Hufflepuffs and Gryffindors.

Feel free to stop by my office if you have any questions about anything. I trust you've been enjoying a warm Hogwarts welcome?

[[4th wall tiem! Feel free to pesterpesterpester~]]
onlyapparate: (why are you so stupid)
Okay. Where the fuck is that bastard Yukimi. Swear to God, he is dead.

[ the sound of someone knocking on a door can be heard. Slamming on it, really. ]

If you know where he is, talk to me. Otherwise, stay the hell away. I don't wanna deal with any of you little snots.

[ more banging, followed by muffled cries. ]

Oh, and not that any of you idiots care, but I think the nice guy got himself locked in the closet. Hah, what else is new.
onlyapparate: (I worry about you sometimes)
Goodness, I keep losing my journal. I believe it was in the kitchens? Whatever was it doing there? [ nervous scrawl. ]

How is everyone doing? I know it's been a while since the new term started, but everyone's been catching up in class, right? If you have any trouble, don't forget that I'm available in my office after class.

As for those transformations... I hope everyone's alright? I didn't exactly enjoy the experience. Being that small was extremely inconvenient.

((ooc; Thobari was a Mudkip. so I herd you liek him.))
onlyapparate: (I worry about you sometimes)
I know the temporary living arrangements must be cramped, but I hope everyone's getting along with their new house-mates! I wish I'd had so many chances to interact with people out of my house when I studied here. Being shut up in your own common rooms is no good; this is your chance to meet people you might not normally get to know.

[Private//semi-hackable (totally hackable to Yukimi and Maron)]
Of course, some friends outside your house might be better than others...
[/Private]

As for all this rain, it's a little ominous, isn't it? I certainly hope it stops soon. The lake could flood at this rate...

[Private]
When it rains like this, I can't help but think back on that night. I wonder if there's some sort of magical cause for the rain...?
[/Private]
onlyapparate: (face of shame)
[Private Nigh-Impossible to hack]
Dark wizards killing innocents... I wonder if this is related to what happened ten years ago? If my mistakes from the past come back to haunt us... I won't forgive myself.
[/Private]

I'd like to extend my condolences to anyone who lost or knows anyone who lost a loved on in the attacks at Kent this week. If anyone needs someone to talk to, I know a bit about coping with loss, so... my door is always open.

If possible, I'd like to set up a moment of silence for the victims. I'm afraid I'm still quite new and wouldn't know how to get the word out, but if anyone would like to second my suggestion, I'm sure we can work something out. Perhaps before a meal in the Great Hall? I'm open to suggestions.

These attacks are unforgivable. It is during times like these that we must remain steadfast in our beliefs and band together to move forward. Although we cannot bring back those who have fallen, we can keep them alive by keeping their memories in our hearts.

[scrawled a little hastily]
Your assignments are still due on Sunday.

[Private to Miharu]
Miharu, if I could have a word with you.

As if returning to Hogwarts and taking that wretched train weren't difficult enough, why am I fifteen again?! It's not exactly a time I want to revisit... Try as I might, I can't seem to undo whatever spell is causing this. There don't seem to be any other side-effects, so I'll stop by the hospital later, perhaps.

I-in any case, hello everyone! My name is Thobari Durandal Kumohira. You don't have to worry about the Kumohira part, since that's a bit hard to say. Just Professor Thobari or Professor Durandal is fine. And I'll just get this out of the way by adding that my name is pronounced Tobari, as if the "h" wasn't there. Just like the Thames, get it?

I may not look it right now, but I assure you, I am your new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. To my students; I'm certain that this year you'll learn plenty of new things, and it's my duty to make sure that you make the best of this term. So no slacking off just because I'm new, alright?

To the teachers, I'm honored to be joining a renowned institution such as this and I hope we can work together to make sure our students become outstanding wizards and witches.

And please don't listen to anything Yukimi says about me. He's a wonderful man, [the ink here looks especially dark] don't get me wrong, but he and I were... friends back in high school, so his opinion may be a bit... biased.
[/filtered to staff]

[[ooc; replies will be done with [livejournal.com profile] runstoireland, since Thobari looks 15]]
