onlyapparate: (brb; dying on the train)
Hello, everyone. First of all, your papers have been graded, and I'm very happy with the results we've had this week! Everyone is working hard, despite a few setbacks, and that's a good attitude to keep! Also, to my Gryffindors, I've reserved the Qudditch Pitch for practice. [[OOC: I've been really busy so I don't know what dates would be ic. ooc-comment me on what day makes sense?]]

Unfortunately, for those of you (minus the seventh years) who may have wanted your papers back, I have some bad news... Anna, my owl, seems to have gotten to them while I was out of my office. It seems she's making a nest? It's a bit odd, but I promise I'll be mindful of her next time so that this doesn't happen.

Filtered to Castiel. Hackable to Gabriel and Bob (And maybe Kallen since Thobari doesn't lock anything from her);
Castiel, I've asked Professor Dumbledore and he's given us permission to use the grounds for your.. ceremony, if you remember. I believe we could have it this week, if possible? Summer break gave me enough time to prepare everything, so you don't have to worry. Is there any date you're partial to? I already have a bit of a guest list in mind, but if there's anyone you'd like to add, well...
onlyapparate: (the end.)
It seems I left my journal in my suitcase all this time. That's quite a shame; I actually think trying to make Lemon Drops was a lot of fun. I'll have to try again when I get back to school and find some time. Though with my new duties, this may be easier said than done?

In any case, The conference has been instructive and things have been... good. I'm certainly looking forward to the new year.

[ SOMEONE seems happy. Unfortunately, no, he didn't "get lucky," but he did make out up with Kallen. Annnnd, since they're sharing the same room; there be cuddles. Lots of cuddles. Because that's just how they roll. ]
onlyapparate: (gryffindor)
It seems like Anna delivered something to me on time for once! I wish she'd get in the habit of it, really... The letter in question was from Dumbledore. I'm quite honored; it seems I've been appointed Head of House! So as a note to all you Gryffindors out there, don't think that because I'm so lenient in class, I won't be strict as your house's Head. But in any case, let's beat Slytherin into the dust, alright?

[Filtered to whoever read Gabriel's last entry, this includes Gabriel too.]
I realize I may have worried some of you because of an altercation I had with Gabriel and Castiel. I think we've managed to work out most of the problems that went into that misunderstanding, but I'd like you all to know that I'm perfectly fine. And not, in any way, Gabriel's "bitch," though he would claim otherwise. [[oddly enough, those strikes are only hackable to Gabriel. And Castiel if he tries reallllly hard.]]
[/Filter]

It seems I'll be apparating to Monaco after all! Maron, I truly owe you. I'm looking forward to the teacher's conference and then it'll be just a few more days until classes start! This year is going to be exciting, isn't it?
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: (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: (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.]

This is it, everyone! The final stretch! I hope you're all studying your hardest! I'm rooting for you all, even those of you whom I don't teach. And I'm not discussing the guests we had outside of that strange teacher and the rather sweet student. Castiel, this is directed at you.

As for me, I have some... rather strange news? My owl, Black, passed away last month. (And yes, his name was just "Black.") He was quite old, so I can't say I was too surprised. It's a bit sad, considering Grandpa got him for me, but, well... it's inevitable. Well, regardless, that isn't the strange part. The odd thing happened last weekend, when I decided to make a quick run to find a new one. That's not to say that the ones the school provides aren't excellent, but we tend to get a lot of post over the summer at home-- but I digress.

Long story short; as I was walking by, this owl began squawking incessantly at me. The owner of the store came to see what the fuss was about, and was surprised. It turns out the bird was a female Madgascar Red Owl, very expensive and for as long as the owner had her, she had always been very quiet. I assumed she didn't like me, but the moment the owner opened her cage, she flew up and perched on my shoulder, quiet as can be. I couldn't get her off to be honest, not without her squawking angrily again, so I ended up purchasing her, only... As soon as I got back to Hogwarts, she flew off my shoulders and that was that. I didn't even have time to give her a name.

She did reappear a few days later, of course, but she's a bit odd. For starters, she gets my mail wrong. I've been finding it in my office, in my room, in the classroom? And even in random places that I don't frequent very often. She's completely unpredictable; sometimes she'll fly in and perch on my shoulder once again, gazing at my surroundings like a hunter stalking its prey. It's more endearing than worrisome, I suppose, but I do hope she doesn't strike at anyone when she's looking like that. For some reason, she's oddly possessive of me.

In any case, if any of you happen to see any post addressed to me, can you stop by my office and hand it to me? I also need to buy a better perch for my owl, my shoulder is starting to hurt. I've been calling her "Red" for a few days now, but I don't want to continue my grandfather's trend of naming birds after colors. Do any of you have any suggestions?

[[ooc; if anyone wants to say they got some of Tobi's mail, feel free! It's probably all junk, bills, or letters from old co-workers who take pity on him. Unless you want to plot amoungst yourselves and have letters you might have sent Thobari end up in someone else's hands.]]
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: (sheepish)
[Private]
Another tragedy and I... I did what I could but... when they started casting killing curses, I... froze up. In all these years, I haven't changed at all, have I? How is it that I am still so naïve?
[/Private]

I'll be in the hospital until further notice. It's going to take a group effort to keep Yukimi in his room. If he tears open his wound again, it's only going to make things worse. [strikes hackable to friends] Although I haven't been here long enough to know the victims of the attack personally, my heart goes out to their family and friends. Although losing a loved one can sometimes seem unbearable, it's important to keep moving forward and living for their sake.

To my students, I'm afraid I won't have time to correct your assignments quite yet, so if you haven't handed them in, feel free to do so. You have until the end of the month. I'll likely be heading back to Hogwarts once this is over to do what I can for those students who are unable to return home, so sending it by owl is fine.

[Hackable to staff, though by mistake]
What happened was unforgivable. I know the casualties were minimal all things considered, but...! There's no reason why anyone should have had to die in the first place! I should have done more.... I failed again.
onlyapparate: (it's nothing forget it)
Well, it certainly took me a while to find my journal, didn't it? I wish I knew how it got in the lake in the first place, but...

In any case, I'd like to remind my students that my lovely Teaching Assistant has dutifully posted the requirements for your next assignment. Remember to hand it in on the 15th, which is the day before the next field trip, so it should be easy to remember!

Speaking of field trips, I'll be joining you all as chaperon, since I know my way around the Ministry. We hardly got any field trips back in my days at Hogwarts, so be sure to make the best of it!

Why do we have to go by train, though? I-I wanted to meet you all there, but Dumbledore said that the train ride was "part of the fun." I'd rather that than the Knight Bus, that's for sure, but... None of you will mind if I pass out, right?

[Filtered to Staff]
It's my first time chaperoning a big event like this, should I be worried?

onlyapparate: (I worry about you sometimes)
To my students:
Before you all go to Hogsmeade this weekend, I'd like to remind everyone that homework is due tomorrow. Yes, I am aware that it is due on Valentine's Day, but you've had lots of time, I'm sure you're all done with them by now, right?

Speaking of Hogsmeade, I haven't been there in almost ten years. Has anything changed since then? I'd warn you all to be safe considering the attacks the other day, but... Regardless, it's Valentine's Day, you should all try to enjoy yourselves!

((Got my sign up here. Sorry for the delay~ In any case, Thobari still doesn't know who all his students are, so if you don't do it, he might just blame himself and have you do extra work without much penalty.))

[Private//50% Hackable]
...It seems I don't have anyone to give Valentine's to this year. Hrm... maybe next year...?
