By no small measure of effort I seem to have been awarded the title of Slytherin Head of House. The timing is incredibly fitting, given that I'll have been teaching here for almost an entire year now. Who new that such honourable promotions would come so quickly, I had no idea I was considered a good fit for it.
[Which is to say he knew all along and he's been waiting for this to happen.]
As such, if any Slytherins are in need of advice or assistance, whether it be academic or not, are free to visit my office within reasonable hours. Any questions?

Ah. I suppose I should also give thanks to anyone who attended my birthday celebrations it february, I was pleasantly surprised by it.

Of course, that does not excuse anyone from their studies. Students of all classes should keep in mind that we will be focusing strictly on practicals this week. I would suggest you go over your previous months reading before attending or you may be surprised yourself upon entering the room, We will have an array of live subjects so I ask that you not only bring the necessary supplies but that you also bring your brains and make sure they're functioning for once in your lives. Mischief will not be tolerated when our classes are under the scrutiny of live magical creatures.

Well, I can't say I've ever been this late to school before.
Unfortunately, I can't claim to be awesome enough to have played hooky for half a year.
Maybe next year.
In the meantime, I'm back.
I'm sure you're all either completely ecstatic or completely disgusted, so please, contain your looks of horror and/or joy.
A simple "Sup, Dirk" will suffice.

Students of all years, I have some brief announcements for you.

First, I would like to belatedly welcome you back from your holidays. As much as I would dearly like to believe you've worked all of your ridiculousness out of your system in time for school, I doubt it such a thing could ever happen.

As it happens, I am now teaching all of the houses. Congratulations, Hufflepuff and Gryffindor and I hope you haven't become accustomed to a different style of teaching.

I will allow some time to pass before I begin to assign work, if only because I would like to put some focus on the up coming dueling contest. If you've yet to sign up, I strongly suggest you do so. It's not often such an opportunity arises, after all.

Classes will now have some focus on dueling spells and techniques and we will be going over form and etiquette for some time.

For those of you brave enough to enter the tournament, I am unbiasedly extending an offer for extra lessons and assistance in your own time, if you are willing to do so. If only because I feel the need to encourage competitive spirit that is not limited to the Quidditch pitch.

If you have any questions, now is the time to ask them.
I will end this with the reminder that swearing is not accepted on the journals and doing so lowers your charisma and your house points dramatically. If you cannot refrain from doing so, I will happily filter charm you.

Alright, practical jokes are fine, but someone better tell me the password to Gryffindor tower. I don't know who knocked me out and put me in the Slytherin common room, but it's old now. Who ever you took that sweater and tie from will find them on one of their couches.

Once I get back in to my dorms, I think we need to have a snowball fight. We could do it between houses, like Quidditch since there is no match this month. Don't be sad when Gryffindor wins though.

Have pranks gotten more elaborate since my time at school or are students becoming more and more disrespectful.
I don't know who switched all of my clothes around or what your intention was, but changing the size of them is incredibly simple. Men's clothes? Really? If there's a joke there I'm missing the humor of it.

That said, if my clothes aren't returned by the end of the day I will make each and every one of you regret it.

There's a strange man in my room. I've never seen him before and I certainly didn't bring him in here. He's already unarmed but I'm not exactly sure what it is I'm meant to do with him now.
Assistance would be greatly appreciated, because if he wakes up I am going to smother him with a cushion.

I don't know about the rest of the inhabitants of this castle, but I didn't enjoy that trip down memory lane. For those who we lucky enough to stay normal and assisted those is need around, it was appreciated. Mr. Odinson, I'll be giving Gryffindor ten points by the way.

If anyone calls me Lutessa, expect detention, and if you're a staff member you are free to take a long walk of a short pier.

Yo, it's been entirely too long since you all got a real homework assignment. Not something like those little study assignments I've been giving you. It's about time for another one of the real deals.

Since you're all on the same level, this goes to everyone. You've been studying basic phrases in Mermish, right? So it's time to put those to use. I want everyone to start inco

[But then the message stops for a few long moments. Ink drips onto the page as if he's dropped his quill. It's a while before anything more than inksplatters appears.]

Alright, that was weird! I just had like, a massive head rush or something. I don't remember coming into this room! And I don't even know whose journal this is, but I guess I got a teacher's journal by accident? I don't even know. But whatever. I hope they don't mind me using it, because I can't find my own.

This guy writes a lot of weird things.

Oh, I probably shouldn't be reading this, should I? Sorry! Please don't give me detention. I'm just kinda confused, I wasn't thinking. I'll pretend I didn't read anything.

So anyway, I've been here a few months now and weird things are still happening. Like me waking up in this room randomly, for example. Is that normal? Should I see a doctor? I know this place is magical, but still it's really freaking weird.

I should probably get out of here now that I think about it. I don't wanna be caught in some teacher's office without permission...

Also does anyone have any ink I can borrow? Because this black is really boring.

[So yeah, Bro is back to being a first year in the middle of writing a homework assignment and is kinda confused. On an OOC note, responses will come from [personal profile] brohoof]

So it would appear that the High Inquisitor is no longer gracing us with his presence. An unfortunate event indeed.
It is perhaps a little late to point out that the majority of you acted with absolute disregard for common sense, so I'll spare you the lecture for now. Though I do wonder if etiquette lessons are necessary.

On that note, I will announce that the wedding is now unnecessary and is in fact, cancelled. If you hadn't figured out why by now, there's no hope for you. Of course, we were never intending on allowing it to go so far, that would have been ridiculous.

I'm sure you're all very disappointed.

[If you are Constance, Bro or an Ampora kid he would have found you and talked to you prior to posting it. Whether you want to handwave that or not is up to you, but I'm down with doing action posts here.]

Good afternoon students. It's been awhile since I've assigned some homework, but I'll keep it simple given that Quidditch and Hogsmeade is coming up. I'd like all of you to revise and practice what you've been learning in class so far. There'll be a test waiting for all of you the Friday of the week after Quidditch is over, so you'll have plenty of time to prepare for that. The test covers all topics from the start of class till the week before, so make sure you study and practice hard.

For fifth years and seventh years, you guys, unfortunately, have a little bit more work. Fifth years, I want you to cover your year one and year two material. Seventh years? You'll have to go the extra mile and cover years one to four. There'll be more focus on what you've learned this year, but you'll be surprised at how relevant a first year spell could be in a dangerous situation. I'm not looking too much into the details, but more into execution and application, so don't spend too much time on the theory for the spells.

Also, I appreciate that most of you didn't give Professor Donoghue a hard time when he substituted for me on the 29th of October. I'd like to thank him once again for taking up my slots on such short notice.

Mr Kishitani, may I see you in my office as soon as possible?

[OOC: So, what Coulson means by a "small test" is actually a short practical course that he's going to set up on the grounds! Students will have to run through the course and overcome creatures and situations that have been purposely set up according to their years. Simply state over here at the homework post on how they fared during the course!

Also, Coulson was actually absent on the 29th of October, which was the day after the full moon. It's the first time he's called in sick, and Murdoc took over his classes for that day.

I'm in a bit of a pickle right now. This will be my last year at Hogwarts and I know that while some students may not know what they want to do with their abilities, I do. I know exactly who I am and what I want to be. However, there is a problem...my family expects me to take up a job working for the ministry.

We are not wealthy, nor prestigious, but they hold me up to high expectations--I assume this is because they want me to become well...wealthy and prestigious. I wish to use my magic for other reasons, but I have no idea how I would be able to bring this up to my father. I also don't trust him to not overreact; he has a habit of doing so when something doesn't go exactly as planned.

I suppose what I'm asking for in this journal is advice. It would be much appreciated.

Leave me here to die

33 sucks.

Out of all of the numbers out there, it's probably the worst number by far. I mean, what's even the point of it? 32 is better. 31 is better. 33 is absolutely pointless in its existence. And it's an odd number. Odd. Odd numbers suck, but 33 is the suckiest odd number out of all of them.

There's nothing even ironic about it. I can find irony in every other number. But not this one. It's like anti-irony in its most natural form.

We're wizards, we should be able to magically take this number out of existence.

Someone invent a spell for that.

So I'm a bit late in making this introduction.


I'm Professor Captor, and I'll be teaching Flying. I know it's a bit late to just show up and start teaching, so I'll apologize for that. There were a few complications, but I'm here now.

I'm also offering one on one practice, if anyone wants to really improve their techniques, or are too nervous and shy to ask for help in class. So, just. Feel free to contact me if you need help.

Flying classes will resume on Monday, so I hope to see everyone in this coming week.

I must apologize for the delay in addressing the Halloween incident. You can rest easy knowing that I've been hard at work on the matter ever since it happened, contacting the Ministry and coming to the best course of action.

The Ministry and I believe that a powerful, dark magical object was brought into the school as a prank intended to make the ministry look like a fool for disregarding the incident at camp. The situation got out of hand, as you are all well aware of. As such, the Ministry has decided that in the next couple of weeks, security in the castle is going to be tightened considerably. Random trunk checks will be conducted and anyone leaving or entering the castle will be searched thoroughly, as will mail.

Finally, I will be questioning everyone personally. I will find out who did this, and I will make sure they are punished accordingly, expulsion being the minimum.

If you have any questions or information regarding the incident, you can ask here. If you have information, see me in my office immediately.

I have some pretty strange dreams, you can imagine, I'm sure. I've had a couple odd ones lately, and I know there's multiple studies both science and magic related behind dreams and what they mean. Well, I guess one of them was more of a nightmare; I woke up terrified, I don't know why, really -- but, this massive american purple tyrannosaurus rex was trying to talk me into going near the window so he could eat me! All American accented and everything it was weird! I woke up after a while of him trying his best strangely terrified.

And THEN, right? I was sleeping the other night, as you do, casual like, right? And THE SAME CHEEKY T-REX was subbing for Professor Donoghue! This time he was a lot smaller though, and he had a cowboy hat on... He kept getting mad at me because I kept telling people to stay away from him.

I don't see how those could be related to any form of science or magic other than me eating too much candy before bed.

As some of you may know, Sybille's thirty sixth birthday will be coming this week on the eighth. If you're a friend or acquaintance of hers, I invite you to join us for dinner in Hogsmeade if you are able.
If possible, dress nice and bring a gift. I'll pay for dinner but drinks are your own problem.

We will be meeting at 8pm at the restaurant called Le Nuit a few places away from the station. Don't be late, it's tacky.

Ravenclaw and Slytherin. It's been some time since I've assigned you work. I'd hate for your minds to wander while your professor is busy with near endless preperations, so I've taken the time to set you some busywork and warn you about your future curriculum.

First years, we will be studying the correct ways to treat and bandage wounds in an emergency. There will be practicals and you will be practising. I trust that the idea of bandaging a classmate won't throw you all into veritable fits of excitement.

In preperation for this I ask, Why put pressure on a bleeding wound?

Second years I'm sure you'll be thrilled to know we will be studying Cornish Pixies. If I'm feeling particularly magnanimous I may set one lose and have you attempt to catch it. I warn you, they do bite.

Third years can you tell me what the Lumos Duo spell is most commonly used in defence of? The answer will provide you with the subject of our next studies.

Fourth years as you've been informed, we are studying curses with a special attention to the unforgivable curses. I want you to name one and write me at least ten lines on why it has been deemed unforgivable.

Fifth years we will be studying the effective use of jinxes in battle and defence. I want you to name a jinx and write twenty lines on theoretical a situation it would be beneficial to use in.

Sixth years it is my great pleasure to announce that we are slowly ready to move on from the theory of nonverbal spells and we will begin to practise them. We will be starting with very basic spells, but remember that they take an immense amount of concentration. I advise that you rest up before classes.
You may rest, of course, once you write ten lines on the importance of nonverbal spells and what kind of things are important to perfect them. For example: To become proficient at nonverbal spells, one must become particularly good at focusing.

Seventh years will be going over theory with me and on Friday we will be having an in-class discussion about the psychological impacts of Dark Magic and curses. It will be a draining class, perhaps emotionally so. As with the sixth years, I advise you rest up and fortunately, you are free from the wrath of assignments.

Thank you and remember to ASK if you are in a state of complete and utter confusion. I would rather suffer through a stupid question than receive unsatisfactory work. It makes us both look bad when I grade you and I do so hate using red ink.

[[ooc: Homework goes here!! Also this is either back or forward dated so it doesn't clash with the event.]]
