It's....... good to know that I was happy? And that someday I'll tell Miharu about what happened...

[ asdfghjkl;;;; BUT BEING GAY IN THE FUTURE WHAT IS THAT? AND HAVING FUZZY MEMORIES ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS WITH CERTAIN PEOPLE IS NEVER FUN. NOT. GONNA. TALK. ABOUT IT....strikes unhackable, btw. ]
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. ]

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. )

[Filtered to Castiel]
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: (head in hands)
ANGSTING THIS-A-WAY )

[[Okay, so this post is 100% unhackable to Kallen and everyone else, basically. For Yukimi, Spencer and Kate, it's like 40% hackable, so you might hear some stuff about him being weak and whatnot. For Maron, this is 90% hackable (everything but the strikes) and for Cas, yeah, it's 100%.]]
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.

Private to Castiel )
onlyapparate: (elementary my dear spencer.)
[[Strikes are all 60~100% Hackable, depending on how close you are to him.]]

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: (god Tobi you look kinda cool)
Hello, everyone! I'm back!

First of all, to all my students, I must apologize for my unnanounced absence. I got called away for a bit regarding my grandfather's estate, and the message seemed quite urgent, so I walked there as fast as I could.

And on that note, yes, I walked there. To Glasgow and from Glasgow. In retrospect, I can't imagine why I chose to do that instead of simply apparating. It would have been faster, and now my legs hurt a bit... Perhaps I was feeling nostalgic? My mind was in a difficult place, if I remember correctly, so that could have something to do with it. Walking has always cleared my head, at least.

In any case, I won't bore you all with the details of my trip because I'd really rather not talk about it, so, how has Hogwarts fared while I was away? Can't believe we lost. Damn. Studying hard, aren't we? If anyone is looking toward working on extra credit or needs help with DADA, my office hours should be posted at my door. I've extended the hours quite a bit to make up for lost time, so feel free to stop by!

[ooc; strikes hackabale to his friends/acquaintances. Except for that Quidditch bit. That's hackable to Gryffindors/Gryffindor teachers only. Also~! For anyone interested, how's about this? The Durandal's Pensieve broke. Getting it fixed took all the time Tobi was home, but he isn't about to admit to that because, well, what was his grandfather doing with a Pensieve, hmm?]
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.))
