Isn't effort just blehh?

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 with the situation at hand and Mary couldn't help agreeing with the unspoken sentiment. Grading papers and thinking about schoolwork was not the way she wanted to spend her time either. She felt a bit like she had when she was a student, doing homework on a nice day. It wasn't any less frustrating now, as a professor, although she supposed it was a bit less aggravating, too. At least she now only had her own standards to worry about and not the professor's.

"Have you ever met a Veela in person?" Mary asked, trying to remember up to the last journal entry she'd read. Her thoughts traveled carefully to Michelle and she decided distraction isn't what had kept her from being entranced by the woman. Instead, she just stopped thinking of her as a Veela at all. But that was difficult to explain, particularly when there were extenuating circumstances like a long-term relationship to consider, and she didn't feel like bringing that part up for discussion.

"I agree," Mary said, replying to Tabitha's last comment. "But especially you." Mary laughed. "That was a terrible pickup line, I'm so sorry. Did it work though?"

        "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

            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

                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
