Tell me more

Selina focussed her attention on the young witch as she spoke, politely deciding that she hadn’t noticed the nature of the room she was looking into. It was rather on the bare and cheap looking side, but Ms. Hawthorne couldn’t help that Selina was having to call her, and thus it wasn’t fair to judge her on what the place she was taking the call looked like. Another Brit. Their Care of Magical Creatures teacher also hailed from that side of the pond, and they were around the same age. She might have to run Tabitha’s name past him, see if it rang any bells. Check she wasn’t responsible for burning down a dormitory, or that the two of them weren’t a failed item who couldn’t stand to be in the same building. Neither of those would be particularly desirable. Although, in the second case, she’d be tempted to tell them to suck it up and make it work, even if that meant drawing a line down the centre of the school and each sticking to their own half.

“That sounds excellent,” she nodded encouragingly, when Tabitha talked about travelling around and gaining practical experience which she wished to pass on. Certainly, very few branches of magic worked well from just book based learning.

“Why don’t you tell me a little more about some of the things you’ve encountered on your travels? There’s quite a few elements to defence - there’s creatures, there’s defensive spells, duelling… Are there any of those areas that you feel you gained more experience than others?” she asked.

OOC - great post! And then we just… kinda keep going like this!

      • It got a bit fiery... - Tabitha Hawthorne, Thu May 3 10:06
        Tabitha shifted slightly, feeling much more at ease. It felt like this interview was going well, which was reassuring to her. She just hoped that the room she was sitting in wasn't too off-putting.... more
        • With the French wizard? - DH Skies, Thu May 3 10:38
          “Hopefully there aren’t too many of those around,” Selina nodded, when Tabitha explained she hadn’t met many dark wizards. Selina was well practised at keeping her face professional - a skill that... more
          • Ha. That was just bizarre... - Tabitha Hawthorne, Thu May 3 11:07
            Tabitha was silent for a few moments, mulling the question over in her head. For the first time in the interview, she allowed her eyes to fall to her hands, one of which was playing with the fingers... more
            • Moving on then - Selina Skies, Sat May 5 03:57
              She was definitely a sweet natured individual. It wasn’t a very balanced answer, focussing only on one half of the problem - half-veela in her class or not, she would still need to teach the material ... more
              • Uh... teaching experience - Tabitha Hawthorne, Sat May 5 14:15
