If You Need Vacation Please Be Patient

Where owls fly in and out of Ilvermorny to deliver and send mail. For students who don't have an owl, there are public barn and tawny owls that fly in and out on a regular basis.

If You Need Vacation Please Be Patient

Post by Jacran Toreel » Thu Jan 18, 2018 3:34 pm

Toreel was one of Ilvermorny's more elusive professors, rarely seen outside of class or the Entrance Hall where his presence was required. The raven-haired, yellow-eyed Head of Pukwudgie didn't make a very good representation of his house: brusque, unapproachable, stern. Those who had the benefit of his intervention spoke highly of him, and he taught well, but other than that no one knew much about the Bosnian transplant.

Today, Vidalia was in the Owlery attaching a parcel to the leg of one of their public owls when Toreel entered from the adjacent stairs leading up into the tall, looming (and slightly leaning) tower. The large hands of a clock ticked outside, and owls fluffed and preened amidst bales of hay. He held a semi-large envelope under his arm, padded inside.

"Ms. Artifex," he dipped his head to her, tone curt as ever. Arithmancy was tough, arguably on the level of Potions and DADA, because Toreel spared nothing when it came to expectations and hard work. He blended the magical with mundane in terms of mathematics, giving all his students well-rounded knowledge in a variety of complex numerical subjects.

She was one of those students that aggravated professors. She rarely participated in class, turned in her assignments last minute, and never seemed to study, and yet got incredibly impressive marks. She seemed to pay more attention to her social life than her schooling, but her marks couldn't lie that she had talent.

Whether or not she was using it to her full potential though was debatable.

She glanced up at he came in, wishing that she hadn't already sent Pip off with something because this owl was a bit fidgety but oh well, and nodded back

"Professor."

Also unlike a host of others at this school, Toreel didn't have an issue with Vidalia's process as it were. If she failed to turn in assignments, points were taken from her house, but last-minute wasn't the same as late and she evidently grasped the material. He frequently sneaked her texts or work unrelated to her classmates, in more advanced subjects. Intellect was frequently bored, and Vidalia was the perfect example of this. "Trouble with the owl?" His eyebrows arched dryly at the scraggly thing she was trying to coax.

"Just a bit nervous I think. I already sent my little one off so... Having to use a school one."

She finally got it settled and then gave the owl a few pets

"But you're still a good lil guy huh? Yeah. You're a good owl."

She enjoyed the subjects he snuck her, found them to be fascinating and far more engaging than what was in her year. She was waiting to ask if she could do some kind of independent studying with him, or at least, maybe an advanced tutoring plan of some kind to help further her inclinations

"You finish Quantic Reason yet?" he summoned a barn owl to his arm and affixed his envelope with a piece of twine, tying it in one simple flourish. "You know where to go. Don't be seen."
