I'll give you a break now
Mon Aug 27, 2018 05:24

If he hadn't already been in love with someone else, Kir thought that Professor Hawthorne was the kind of teacher he could easily have developed a crush on. She was smart, open minded, and really pretty. Two of the most important qualities in a person plus a bonus. Luckily, given that love was powerful enough to give some protection against even veela, it was more than enough to ward off thoughts about teachers. Though he wasn't ruling out the possibility that Ness would be head over heels for the professor as soon as he told his sibling about this.

He admired Professor Hawthorne's persistence and skill in tying the tangent back to the subject of veela. If questioned or complained about, she could honestly say that it had all (more or less) been relevant.

"No," he smiled at her with genuine gratitude when she asked if he had any more to ask (or say). He thought the consent stuff was important but there was also such a thing as information overload, as well as pushing one's luck. He thought he might bring it up with her after class though, just in case they were going to spend any more time on veela, or could bring it up another way. "That was great. Thanks."

          Tabitha nodded in Emerald's direction when the girl stuck her hand up. She prayed that it wouldn't be a question about anything she'd just explained. Despite the fact that she thought it was right to ... more

            Emerald couldn't help but be pleased that Professor Hawthorne liked her question even if the answer wasn't very straightforward. In fact it didn't really answer her question very well at all. The... more

              Winston smiled back at Emerald but it was short-lived. The fact that there was no easy magic defense to ward off Cleo (or other Veela, or half-Veela, but Cleo was the one in his class and House) was... more

                Jehan’s offer to help didn’t seem to have the desired effect, as Tatya buried her face in her hands again. Why did his friends all insist on apologising for things that weren’t their fault? But it... more

                      Jehan had known that his statement had been an unfair accusation, and this was corroborated by Dorian’s quick refutation of the idea. Still, Dorian had seemed to have been avoiding him, and he just... more
