No! It is wrong and not okay!

“But she tells me already,” Dorian assured the professor, his tone calm and factual. He could understand that teachers couldn’t just discuss students with other students in general, but he already knew what Professor Wright had accused Tatya of, which was really the only part that was in any way private. “How else I would know about this? Her paper have no mistakes. You think that she used the spelling-correctly quill,” he summarised. “And she agrees that I come talk to you.

“She does not do this,” he reiterated his belief of her innocence. His tone was less firm this time. No less convinced, but there were limits to how long he could solidly stare down a teacher and maintain a commanding tone for, and those limits were, apparently, around the three second mark. Dorian was a fairly good student in Charms, but he did better on those spells which required whimsy or flourish. His progress in anything that required a ‘commanding tone’ was usually somewhat slower - he had struggled to get his fork to halt abruptly rather than just dwindle to a stop - and the fact that he had managed it at all spoke volumes about the extent to which he cared about the issue at hand. “She is not a bad person.”

  • Right, then. Okay....Professor Wright, Thu Apr 5 18:59
    Students actually taking advantage of the existence of office hours was not unheard of, but nor was it something which happened with astonishing frequency. As a result, Gray had just decided it was... more
    • No! It is wrong and not okay! — Dorian, Fri Apr 6 07:47
      • Let’s just take a step back, shall we?Professor Wright, Wed Apr 11 16:42
        Well. Dorian did seem to know the facts of the case, sure enough. Gray was not convinced this actually changed his position any, but at least he could honestly say that he had said no such things to... more
        • A look of anger passed across Dorian’s face at the suggestion Tatya had done more than correct her spelling, and he hastily lowered his gaze, knowing that looking angrily at a teacher was crossing a... more

            Depends which philosopher you ask. Well, that had to be one of the more interesting sentences a second year had ever produced, at least in Gray’s presence. He certainly would not have produced it as... more
            • And not about these bits of paperDorian, Mon Apr 16 06:49
              Professor Wright said that he was ‘afraid’ twice without looking like he was actually at all scared, and which was a very odd reaction to some bits of paper, and a very odd thing for a teacher to... more
              • I think we will have to touch on them.Professor Wright, Mon Apr 16 15:12
                Dorian’s explanation – or explanation of inability to explain – of what had just happened scattered its tenses far and wide, its verb patterns even further, and yet Gray sort of wished it had been... more
                • Can I give you the Cliffnotes version?Dorian, Tue Apr 17 09:09
                  “Right, thank you,” Dorian nodded, when Professor Wright told him that it was ‘written.’ “I mean,” he added, realising how it might have sounded like he hadn’t quite heard, “Right… correct, yes I... more
                  • Sure, let's go with that.Professor Wright, Sat Apr 21 21:09
                    Ah, there was the reason Dorian, at least, was in Teppenpaw instead of Aladren. Gray had to admit that the child began to seem far more alien to him with this pronouncement about his character than... more
