Tabitha Hawthorne
It got a bit fiery...

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. Thankfully, Selina seemed to have avoided commenting which was a small mercy. That was an embarrassment she'd rather avoid explaining.

Moving on to the experience and Selina's question, Tabitha winced briefly, remembering a particularly nasty incident in Fiji...

"I'd say that my strongest skills are within defense against creatures... Part of the traveling was deliberately to discover the various beasts and seeing if I could hold my own. I met fire crabs in Fiji, discovered a particularly nasty stray Runespoor in Africa and a Billywig bit me in Australia..." she rubbed at a spot just above her left elbow, absentmindedly. She hadn't enjoyed the particularly bitey insects that had a penchant for her skin.

"Generally, I was successful against most of them. I learned how to think on my feet and my wandwork improved greatly, as a direct result of having to use both offensive and defensive spells against the creatures."

She felt a strand of her dark brown hair fall from the ponytail she'd tied it up into and tucked it behind her ear before continuing.

"I'm a fair duelist but I didn't really come across any dark wizards on my travels.

      • With the French wizard? - DH Skies, Thu May 3 10:38
        ďHopefully there arenít too many of those around,Ē Selina nodded, when Tabitha explained she hadnít 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 wasnít 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
              Tabitha, for a moment paused, realising something quite terrible and felt rather daft for only looking at one half of the problem. She had focused solely on the affected individual and their... more
