onlyapparate: (here let me smile like I care)
It's a bit strange to be back home after so much time on the road. I want to go out and walk for a bit, but short of visiting anyone, I've already been everywhere in my estate. It looks like it'll be a boring calm summer this year... Maybe I could do some redecorating? Does anyone have any ideas?

[ Strikes hackable to friends. ]
Living in this house by myself is starting to become a bit depressing. Maybe I should consider moving somewhere temporarily, and leaving this place in charge of the groundskeeper? I know Grandfather wanted me to inherit this place, but without any guests it's far too empty for me.

Well, I see everyone's busy with exams and everything, so I'll make this quick.

Hello, students! I apologize for my unannounced absence, but I'm back! For those of you who don't remember me, I'm Professor Thobari Durandal Kumohira, and I'll be helping Yukimi grade tests in the meantime, it seems.

I hope you've all had a great semester while I was away, and I wish you the best of luck on your tests! You're in the final stretch now, so give it your all.

[ Not gonna talk about shirts. At all. Because 'Likes older women,' 'killed Asahi Rokujou,' 'KEEPS SECRETS,' and 'TOBI' are embarrassing and totally not relevant to anything. ]

[ 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...

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.]]
