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...

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.

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: (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?

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?

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: (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.
