Professor Rob
If I did that every time, I'd just be predictable

So according to Lucien, he had been worried about this girl stealing his girlfriend, which Rob found to be more than a little weird but he figured he’d let it slide. Seventeen year old boys did some very stupid things sometimes, and this probably didn’t take the cake for what RMI had seen in terms of stupid things boys that age did. Rob almost grinned at the thought of what he’d been doing at seventeen - he and Celia had been Quidditch captains of opposing teams and they’d both made it to the Cup finals, at which point they had promptly kissed each other in front of the entire school before kicking off (figuratively, in Rob’s case) to work on thoroughly creaming each others’ teams. Admittedly, that had been less stupid and more cocky - and probably against the rules of Quidditch, somewhere - but it was along the same lines. Girls. He hoped Jude would grow up to cause just as much chaos.

“Good,” the response was directed firmly at Lucien who had, in Rob’s opinion, hit all the right buttons. Explain what’s going on, check. Apologise, check. Promise not to make it happen again, check. That was all good in Rob’s book. If asked, he could honestly say that he had felt Lucien was both not at fault and appropriately repentant for any provocation he had done. Coolio. Now, this girl. This girl whose name he didn’t know. Damn. That was going to look real awkward real quick.

Anyway, Nameless Girl was clearly not as repentant as Lucien, which was, in Rob’s opinion, not a smart move. The first rule of doing anything was not getting caught doing it, and if you were going to avoid getting caught doing something the way to do that was to avoid explosions. Or, he mentally amended, avoid making explosions near you. Rob had definitely set off a couple of more excited Dungbombs in his time, but he always made sure they were far away from him when they went off. For more reasons than one.

“So apologies are good but I can’t look past you pointing your wand at another student,” Rob said, as seriously as he could manage, trying to channel what he remembered of Headmaster Guido, who had been kind of intimidating as a Headmaster. Unlike Rey, who Rob did not find at all intimidating. “So I’m going to be taking twenty points from uh,” oh Merlin which House was this girl in. Okay Rob, think. Nope, no idea. “Your house,” he covered, gracefully. “And you’ll have detention in the Potions classroom every day for the next week.” There, that was probably an appropriate punishment. Rob felt proud of himself. It was the first time he’d disciplined a student for something this big. “Oh and uh you’re to report to Ga - to Prof - to Mr. Tennant’s office this afternoon for a discussion on the appropriate use of your magic.”

There he went. Bases covered. Awesome. Good job, Rob.

  • Does he? - Camilla, Wed Mar 15 13:18
    Camilla couldn't suppress the laughter that escaped her lips as Lucien jumped in alarm from her, very innocent, hex. She had accomplished exactly what she wanted to: put the idiot back in his place.... more

      • You're already predictable. - Lucien, Thu Mar 16 21:06
        “Good.” Lucien appreciated approval. He wasn’t the type of person to actively seek it, he thought, but he wasn’t about to turn it down, either. However, the approval of the Rolling ‘Professor’ did... more
