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. ]

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?

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.]]

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: (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.))
