..Well, that went well. *NOT*

Hm, it's about time to start restocking for next year's classes. I'll be in my skull office if anybody needs me.

*the next two pages are covered with INCREDIBLY BORING notes about Runes supplies, prices, quantities, ordering information, ETC ETC ETC*

[[Strikes oh so unhackable. B| Bob thinks he needs some time to himself after all the recent stuff that's happened. Others may disagree, especially as Bob doesn't know Thobari has now heard about some of what happened.~]]

[CASTIEL LIKES ANCIENT RUNES AND TAUGHT IT ONCE so he's interested and reads the next two pages like the derp he is.]

[Yeah that's it.]

*yeah well, Bob didn't expect anyone to be interested AT ALL, so huzzah for those pages of misdirection actually being useful to someone. \o/*

Do you need help obtaining your supplies, Professor? [ Yeah, Thobari's being all respectful cuz HEY THIS IS THE 400 YEAR OLD GHOST TEACHER.

*oh piffle, six hundred but who's counting~* ..Hm? Ah, Professor Kumohira! Pardon me, I hadn't recognized your writing.

..Thank you for inquiring! Well, it looks like everything's going to be accounted for, except possibly a few spare sets of dragonhide gloves. The students are responsible to get their own, of course, but there's always one who mislays them, and Flourish & Blotts refuses to send samples of hide through owl post.... I wouldn't ask you to go out of your way, but if you plan to be in Diagon Alley within the next month or so...?

[[Kumohira = last name, right?]]

From: [personal profile] onlyapparate
Yes, certainly! I wouldn't mind at all. I have to stop by soon to get some spare materials for my class as well, so it's no trouble! How many do you need?

[[Yeah, that's right~!]]

That's very obliging of you. Hmm, I think one each of Welsh Green, Hebridean Black, and Swedish Short-Snout. We usually use the latter, but there have been some doubts about its provenance this year and I want to see it tested before letting my students handle magical acid with it.

Do you have a lot to bring back yourself? *wishes he could go, but it'd have to be with someone who knew about his skull....*

Date: 2010-07-12 11:15 pm (UTC)
onlyapparate: (what's wrong now?)
From: [personal profile] onlyapparate
Okay. I'll make sure to get everything. [ will rip out this page later so he knows what to bring. ]

I don't have very much, and besides, if I run out, I can just ask Yukimi for spare things. It's no trouble. [ Yes, Thobari would rather help others than worry about his own things, derp. ]

Oh, uhm, I trust your materials can be apparated? [ Taking the train when it isn't absolutely necessary would be a nightmare. ]

Don't let him talk you into the Chinese Fireball sample; the scale-roots are too delicate for heavy wear.

Well, I hope you needn't inconvenience yourself. *it shouldn't be too bad; the samples are only a few inches of dragon-hide for testing purposes* Best of luck with your own acquisitions.

Yes, Apparition will be fine. It's just these ridiculous Owl Post regulations about exotic hides. They send parchment by owl all the time, and nothing happens to it.

onlyapparate: (leave it to Thobari)

[ Taking notes... 'No Chinese Fireball.' ]

I understand. It's no trouble at all; I should have them in the week.

Thank you! I'll look forward to seeing you, then.

Do the teachers always show off this stuff?

Date: 2010-07-12 08:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh, was that visible? Well, I suppose I'll leave it then -- there's probably nothing particularly dangerous in it.

Are there dangerous things other times? Scary!

Well, that's why my class starts at second-year instead of first-year. We do work with corrosive acids sometimes.~ But all due precautions are taken.

Have any students died yet?

Date: 2010-07-14 11:59 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
...No. It's not that dangerous a class. *well, except in the upper years when they get to triggered rune-spells, but there've been no really serious injuries yet~*

I thought your class was full of... writing.

Date: 2010-07-16 05:28 am (UTC)

It is -- but it's magical writing. Words and magic can be a powerful combination.~

Sounds mega complicated.

Well, it's definitely not Quidditch.
