..As I expected. Runes starts today, and the classroom is virtually unprepared, the sink clogged, every surface dust-ridden, the supplies still boxed up, and my office still full of spiders. Pity that elf-magic can't be trusted around the mummy dust....

Two days into the year and I already need a break. I must be getting soft.

*paces, fuming*

[[Filtered to Reggie]]

Mr. Theophilus, you will please present yourself in the Ancient Runes classroom on the second floor today, at... teatime. Bring a quill and a mop.


[[Filtered to Runes students]]

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the term's first Runes classes are being postponed until tomorrow. You will have an extra free period today. Please read the introduction to your year's edition of White's, and be prepared to answer review questions about the material you learned last year. Thank you.


[[Strike readable by staff, barely hackable if students are really, really good at it.]]

*Reggie appears some time later, looking a little disheveled, with a black eye and holding only a quill*

I tried to bring the mop, but he's a dirty fighter. Got me in the eye. I'LL SHOW HIM!

*sigh, turning to step through the desk* Very well, then, we'll start with the quill and a clean bit of parchment.

Might I inquire, at this stage, how familiar you actually are with Ancient Runes?

Umm...I remember some from school...I think....maybe.

Do you recall that the instrument of writing and the medium upon which a spell is written can have a distinct impact on the efficacy of a piece of written magic?

*tries to simplify* ..For example, a hover-charm written on vellum with a silver pen will not work as well as one written on rice paper with a feather.

[[ ooc: I feel like getting him to hack, and to tell Bob use magic (runes) to somehow get the dust off XDD ]]

A free period so early into the school year?

Also, Professor... In regards to the conditions of the classroom, would it not be possible to somehow use the power of the runes to keep the dust off the surfaces?

Enjoy it while it lasts.

True. It is, in fact, generally warded in that manner, but the wards are disabled over the summer... ironically enough, to allow the classrooms to be cleaned and re-aired. They'll have to be replaced before they'll do any good.

I will.

Ironic, indeed. If that's the case, why don't you just replace them, Professor?

I would, but for certain obvious physical challenges.

Why don't you get the other Professors to do it?

*amused* Well, if we come to that, why don't I just make you do it?

On my rather long list of current priorities, this one's rather low, I must admit -- especially now; the beginning of the term is a busy time for everybody. Wards or no wards, the room still has to be cleared once to start with. Fortunately in that I do have help.

*shrugs somewhat* If you would tell me what runes I'm supposed to use, I wouldn't really mind doing it.

That's great, then.

Hm? Well, that would be much appreciated! Perhaps after class next week, when things have died down a little?

[[ ooc: Should we still play out the part where Gareki finds out about Bob's mobility challenges, or should we just leave it? /o/ ]]

Well, there's something to look forward to, then. *rubs hands* I'll see you in class.

[[ Let's do a new current situation, since I failed and went on hiatus?~]]

*Beams at Bob* I'll help you clean up all this Professor! After all, its what I do best!

((ooc: OHAI..XD apparently Bob gets Tohru as his TA))

You will? I mean... well... yes, I appreciate that, Miss Honda! *looking forward to his afternoon a lot more now*

Of course sir! Its not a problem!

Well, this is a welcome development and no mistake. Tell me... how are you with spiders?

They're not so bad sir, I try not to kill them though because its a little mean of us..

A very commendable attitude: prudence coupled with compassion. *smiles* Well, I seem to have a small spider problem in my office... if you could come over after class and give them a quick repelling charm, that would be a great help. The seventh-year supplies need labeling as well, but... hm, it'd be a good teaching experience for them all to do it themselves, so I think you needn't worry about that.

[[Since this is so late, it doesn't have to continue, but Bob is really, really glad to have her as his co-TA.<3]]
