As a blacksmith? Did she LOOK like a blacksmith? She eyed her perfect nails and then with a frustrated exhalation of air that set a lock of her hair puffing out in front of her face, she busied her hands with rearranging the cutlery again.

"And what was that, Gaellen?" She gestured with her chin to where his glass had been before. Some grey stuff.
"A badly written one, actually, accusing me of mismanagement and suggesting the new staff was less qualified than I was saying. They got a number of details wrong, including the backgrounds of the new staff members." Tate leaned forward to peer at his new Charms professor.

She was a bossy one, but generally amusing in the way that Cari and her sisters were amusing. He did appreciate a woman that knew her own mind. "And it was mead, Professor. My father brews it himself, using local honey and hops, hint of cinnamon, sometimes fruits from an abundant harvest. It's a hobby of his, but I have to say I'm developing a taste for it. If the entire bottle isn't ruined, you're welcome to a glass," Tate stressed her title even as she called him informally. He would just summon the entire bottle from the kitchen where it was stored and see if the problem was how it was stored and sealed or in how it was served.

Granted, she really just wanted to thank him for giving her the opportunity of being a prefect, well...approving her anyway. It worked that way, right?
"Get to it, Hollingberry. Where are the cookies?" He gave her a pointed look, although his tone was light and lacking the usual pointed sarcasm. No reason to jump on the girl when she was baking for them.

"You know I have a preference for oatmeal. Just saying."

"Sure. Had to force Cari to take time off this summer, but we got our vacation time. We have a hard time agreeing on a place to visit. She wants to do things and visit places, and I want to do nothing and visit no one. Apparently..." He dropped his voice. "Apparently marriage is about compromise. Did you know that?"

Taking a napkin he carefully removed what looked like some food residues on his knife and fork. Eddie started to question where he had ended up.
"No. No, no." Tate held up his hand to halt any speculation. They wouldn't be pinning blame on the house elves, who were well treated and content. He made every effort to take care of them, and they did a fantastic job considering the size of the castle and how messy the students were. It was a heckuva job to pick up after a castle full of teenagers.

"They might be ill or having an issue, but I will not have them slandered. They care about their work and would be horrified to know we're speaking ill of them. Perhaps one of you will run down and check on them. See how dinner is coming and maybe... see if one is available to clean the silverware?"
