Tabitha Hawthorne
Oh, completely.

Tabitha made a noise of agreement when Mary mentioned about needing to be better with planning her lessons. The same could be said of the Defence teacher who had developed a poor habit of leaving planning to the last minute. It wasn't because she was lazy or procrastinating, exactly. It was simply because she wanted to teach her students everything and it would take her a while before she settled on the material she wanted to teach. There was just so much in the world to learn about and see and Tabitha wanted not just to share it with them but also inspire them to go and seek it out themselves.

If she was honest, she wasn't entirely sure how good of a job she was doing.

Tabitha didn't answer Mary's question about which mountain of work to tackle first, deciding that no work session should start without first having sufficient sustenance - in this case, tea. From her bag, she produced two mugs, one for her and one for Mary and poured the tea from her flash into both. She took a good swig of the hot beverage before looking over her pile of papers.

"I suppose..." she began with a sigh that indicated that she really didn't want to tackle this right now. "I should grade the Intermediates essays on Veelas. What with this whole situation with Cleo James, that should probably take priority."

She pulled a stack of papers towards her and rooted out an ink well and a quill. She was not looking forward to this. She hoped that she didn't find out that any of her students were closet racists or harboured any kind of horrible feelings towards the girl. This wasn't a topic she wanted to revisit any time soon and the fewer causes for concern there were, the smaller the chance of that happening became.

  • Is that so?Mary Brooding, Sat Sep 8 18:46
    Mary peeped open one eye, the one closest to Tabitha, and smirked at the woman. Tabitha was disorderly in appearance and looked a bit more asleep than awake. Her white cheeks were flushed with a soft ... more

        Mary's stomach tumbled a bit when Tabitha mentioned her lesson on Veelas. She hadn't been sad to be absent from that particular lesson, particularly when she'd heard some students being particularly... more
        • Blehhh? Tabitha Hawthorne, Sat Sep 8 22:09
          Tabitha was trying to read through a student's essay but her concentration wasn't completely on it and all she seemed to be succeeding in doing was re-reading the same line over and over again. She... more
          • Isn't effort just blehh?Mary Brooding, Sat Sep 8 23:13
            Mary smiled sympathetically at Tabitha, who seemed to have been completely soaked in melancholy this morning. Every curved line of her lovely face was pulled into an expression of utter frustration... more
            • Yes, I quite agree.Tabitha Hawthorne, Sun Sep 9 19:12
              "I met one," Tabitha nodded as she finished scibbling a comment at the bottom of an essay before moving it to the 'finished' pile. It was probably a bit ambitious to call it a pile given that it only ... more
              • You're distractable today.Mary Brooding, Mon Sep 10 00:53
                Mary laughed, an easy dancing tune lifting from her mouth as she watched Tabitha pout. She had feelings about this story including Tabitha, a Veela, and JJ, but she preferred this more playful,... more

                  Tabitha smiled as a pink blush coloured her cheeks, having received a kiss on her nose and her lips, though she wished it had been more than a slight graze. However, she knew that Mary was shier in... more

                    Mary laughed, happy to follow after the suddenly eager Defense professor. Everything in Tabitha's demeanor screamed of desperation for adventure, a feeling Mary rarely felt herself although she... more
                    • I can't help it.Tabitha Hawthorne, Wed Sep 12 14:45
                      Tabitha had pulled out her wand from the inside pocket of her blazer, more out of habit rather than anything else. It had become the norm and also, a comfort, to be holding her wand when exploring.... more
