Professor Pye
Last year I was a bit...scattered...

As Alfie watched John pinch the bridge of his nose yet again, he felt bad. He had felt bad the first time--it was clear that John got a little...overwhelmed...with social interactions sometimes and he didn't like to think that he had induced such a reaction. He might not have cared over all what his students thought of him, he might have only cared about their safety (speaking of, he didn't understand why the school's first move was to protect Jax rather than all their other students? wasn't the good of many more important than the good of one? it was true that Jax was harmless as a human and Alfie rather liked the quiet, serious wizard, but Alfie had encountered a werewolf or two before during his auror days, enough to know that werewolves? bad news.) But he was still human and as such the opinions of others--when pointedly made such as John's gesture in front of him in that moment, mattered.

He regathered himself. "I'm sorry," Alfie said now to John. "I was a bit caught off guard, I wasn't expecting, well, that, when you asked to come in." It was silly of him to have responded that way, likely John thought Alfie was treating him like an incapable child, but then John elaborated, explaining his charts.

"Of course you did," Alfie said quietly to himself as though he should have expected someone like John to do such a thing. Honestly, he wondered if having Jax placed in Aladren had been such a good idea. He knew it was the potion which had done so but...the house was known for their logical behaviour and high intelligence. Jax had now been found out by two roommates. This never would have happened in Teppenpaw, and if it had then the roommate would have either gone to Jax themselves for a kumbaya moment or to Nathan Xavier. Either way--not Alfie's problem. "The chart won't, er, won't be necessary."

Although Alfie didn't think the school needed to see the chart, he realised it was something that he himself might find rather helpful. "Right now, anyway," he amended. "Right now I need to know how you would feel if this were to, erm, be the case." He nodded to John in a manner which might suggest that he wasn't really trying to cover things up because he thought he could be sneaky because honestly this was John Umland, he didn't think he could fool the boy even if he really wanted to and besides that, he was only asking such a question because he had Expectations he was meant to follow or else likely be Reprimanded for handling the situation in an unprofessional manner.

    Pye’s response was a surprise. John’s eyebrows dropped and drew inward abruptly in annoyance, but he bit his tongue before he made an emotional reply. Snapping that it was not proper to answer a... more

      • John had to bite his tongue again when Pye said he was surprised. He supposed Pye was surprised. He had been surprised to discover that he’d probably been ordered to allow a werewolf to move into his ... more

          Alfie blinked. Irrelevant data? Samples of organic material and the only thing keeping him from asking was that his siblings and friend would suggest it rude? John’s initial inquiry had been... more

                Jax was a bit confused as to why he was being asked to see his Head of House that evening. He tried to recall if he missed one of the assignments while he had been ‘sick’ but he was fairly certain... more

                  Pye was being annoying. As far as John was concerned, the issue was settled: John did not want to talk to Jax about the problem that didn’t exist, Pye insisted that they must talk to Jax about the... more

                    Jax hadn’t really directed his question at anyone in particular, but rather, just spoke it out into the open and hoped to receive a reply. He was a little hopeful that Professor Pye would just tell... more
