Default Office of professor Abraham Botros


After being allowed to walk through the two polished doors, you're most likely to be welcomed by professor Botros' Crup, Feo. The office is relatively larger than expected, with bookshelves lining the walls, along with artifacts, figures of runes of all alphabets (duh), and several copies of The Pocket-hanky Ultimate Board. To the right and right after you see a basket with a bunch of walking canes inside, there is a small coffee table with a bunch of rolls and parchment on top, a vase of red roses is always perched up too and professor Botros sometimes is seen watering or wiping their leaves gently with his hands. Next to that coffee table is a higher stool with a glass box hovering few inches up in the air. It appears to be nothing inside that glass box, but if you look carefully inside you might just glance a shimmering something before your eyes start to water and you're forced to look away. Do not touch or steal this box, it might be protected with ancient runic magic. with nothing hovering over it anymore.

There are two elegant chairs facing each other and placed right in front of the main desk in the room where you're supposed to sit once Ab ushers you to do so. His desk is as tidy as it is crowded with parchments, books, his spare glasses, and colorful pieces of clothes that you soon will discover it's an unfolded pocket-hanky. To the far end of the desk, safely away from the guests, sit several family muggle pictures of a young man with glasses, and a young woman leaning against that young man. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that this is professor Botros fifty years ago, and then him with his beautiful wife.

On the back of the big door, there is a new parchment with a cute doodle on it. It's the first student souvenir Ab brought from one of his 'kids', to the side of that paper hanging a small piece of wood, and then a pendant shaped as a box with some dust inside.

OOC: please do not post in here until after posting in the seating area thread and being invited in by the professor himself. Posting in here without an invitation will result in deleting your post, and you getting a frowny face from me.

Ella did as she was told and made her way into Professor Botros' office, being mindful to not step on all the papers scattered on the floor. She wondered what the older man was up to but decided to sit down and hold her questions. Oh and Feo was here to keep her company, too. "Here boy!" She said cheerfully, patting her legs.

The Crup jumped behind the girl all the way into the boring place with weird scribbles and awful smell that humans, for some reason, found okay. He WOOFED excitedly when the small human ushered for him and stood on his hinder legs! TADAAA! HE CAN DO THAT! WADDLE!

Botros came inside after a short time and closed the door behind him, he laughed when he saw Feo and went around the puzzle section to his desk. "My wife taught him how to do that. You touched your lap?" That was his cue. The crup gave a couple more of woofs before Ab shook his head. As much amusing Feo was, the old man started to feel tedious dealing with his needs for entertainment and... activity. He still preferred having him around, though.

On to more important issues. "I believe we need to make our own tea if we're going to have a nice chat. I have this new combination of herbs I brought with me from Morocco, let's try them, shall we?" He gave the girl an encouraging smile before rotating on his chair to the small stand beside the table with the one-eye small stove on it. He took a kettle out from underneath, and tapped it twice with his wand. "So, miss Bishop. Tell me how you're doing." Or what she wanted to talk about, really. He was all ears.

He took a kettle out from underneath, and tapped it twice with his wand. "So, miss Bishop. Tell me how you're doing." Or what she wanted to talk about, really. He was all ears.

Ella BEAMED as the crup started to walk while on his hind legs. AW! How cute was that? The blonde clapped quietly and giggled a bit, finding the whole scene incredibly adorable.

And then there was Professor Botros and Ella looked up with a smile. "Yeah, exactly. He's pretty talented, Feo is." And energetic. He was a lot of that too. "My dog only sits and gives his paw when you offer him a treat." Shrug. They were working on it, though. Really.

Tea? Grin. "Yes, that'd be great." Ella's Gran would be pleased, y'know. The woman instilled in Ella a great love of tea and so the sixteen year old was all for a chat over the steamy hot liquid. When Botros turned his attention elsewhere, the blonde chewed on her lip and looked around the office. She'd heard there'd been some sort of explosion or something in here last term, yeah? Something like that. At least things looked to be back to normal now. Oh..and questions.

Ella squirmed a bit in her seat before forcing a smile. "I'm okay...erm really busy but okay." Nodnod. "Sir, I guess why I came is that I'm sort of worried..about the stuff going on here." And she bit her lip, not knowing how to continue. "Are we in big trouble, Professor Botros? Hogwarts, I mean?"

The kettle started to vibrate just as the Hufflepuff started to talk. Botros turned slightly to add the tea then the herbs, and started stirring. His smile was not as genuine as before, it was hard to keep a soft smiling face when the students start to feel.. insecure, inside Hogwarts. Back when he was a boy, the school too had gone through tough time, but the professors had handled it slowly - well, most of them.

"I see why you're concerned, miss Bishop. If this is an indication of something, it is of your high sense of responsibility and your productive nature." He couldn't help but feel even more pleased that she was a Hufflepuff! Very good example to her housemates. He poured the tea in two china cups, his own from home, and stood up to offer her one. Feo automatically nestled by her feet instead of her lap. "I will not mislead you, miss, I do think that things are going to stay like this for a while now. Different, but not bad. It's normal for us to feel uncomfortable when a drastic change occurs in our life. But as long as we work together to cope or overcome the situation, it'll be alright." The herbs' aroma filled his nostrils but he refused to take a sip before finishing his speech. "I can assure you that Hogwarts went into bigger troubles before and it got out intact, if not improved." He gave her a big smile, "With the staff and the board working together, along with the students, I'm sure Hogwarts will be fine." Hopefully. He'd hate to see it crumbling down at the end of his life... but Botros was an optimist, especially when it came to this school.

It was a very tricky and rather frustrating situation they all were in but the young girl didn't have to worry about all the details. He saw her too young for this. "Did you have any ideas or suggestions about... what we and you can do to.. help in any way?" Help younger students, help around the castle, help financially.

He took a sip from his cup and gave it a long moment to recognize the slightly bitter taste of herbs. "Aaah. Not bad. I still prefer classic English tea, though."Chuckling as he took another sip.

Ella did her best to reign in her emotions, something she was rubbish at, by the way. The blonde had never been good at hiding how she felt and though she felt leaders needed to be confident, her worry was shining through. She was incredibly unsure about things going on at Hogwarts and even more puzzled as to how she was meant to fix the situation. Or help, at the very least. Sigh.

The blonde smiled as Feo curled up by her feet and she accepted the cup of tea with a smile. "Thank you, Sir." The steamy hot liquid did wonders for her nerves and she didn't even mind that she'd burnt her tongue taking her first sip. That was all she took, though, for Botros' speech deserved her full attention. It was a good one too, the speech. The blonde's lips twitched upwards into a small smile and she nodded, feeling as if a small amount of weight had been lifted off her shoulders. "It's tough seeing the school like this, especially when it's your home so much of the time." She admitted, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear. "I'm sure you're right, though. If that many people are working to fix the problem then surely they'll figure something out soon." Hopefully.

Ideas to help? Ella furrowed her brows slightly and shrugged. "Well actually, that's another reason why I came to you. I was wondering if you knew of anything I could do." And she gave the man a hopeful smile. "The badgers have already been doing small things, like using Oakey's cuss jar money to pay for entry into the common room." Which was a nice way to spend said earnings, at least she thought so. "Oh and we've had sign-ups to be a badger buddy. I guess we'll find out who we're paired up with soon." Nodnod. "But Sir? I was wondering about things we could do that would help the whole school, not just the Hufflepuffs."

The sixteen year old smiled sweetly at the man as he mused over his tea, taking a sip of her own. "I think it's lovely."

The sixteen year old smiled sweetly at the man as he mused over his tea, taking a sip of her own. "I think it's lovely."

Oh, home. Yes. He could relate to this so much. "I understand what you mean. Some people say our life's path ends right when it started, Othala sometimes represent this too, and I'm starting to believe it. It was my home when I was your age, and it's back to being my home now when my life has slowed its pace." It wasn't a sad confession or realization, just a curious one. His house had been empty now except for antiques and memories.

Botros prevented himself from pointing out that even with so many adults working on it, things could stay the way they were - and from his experience, adults usually just messed everything up before making it right. "Yes, of course." He decided to feed the fragile hope instead, even if just a bit. Oh but wait a second, Gunter had a cuss jar? The professor laughed heartily at this and clapped his hands, "Let me say I am very impressed with Mr. Gunter. Of all of your input actually. See, that's exactly the attitude I was talking about." Young ones had it so natural. Aahhh, and the badger buddy project was even more interesting. He nodded and sipped from his tea, "I grew a liking to this pairing projects in all the institutions I taught at. My son met his wife this way back when he was in school." But that was nothing to interest a kiddo so he hurried on, "I think you're doing great so far." But she wanted to help the whole school? Aww.

"Hmm. The whole school. From what I can see, it's the chores that the elves used to, so generously, do for us that we're short on." He sipped from the cup again. "Maybe we should help with that first, and then offer assistance with whatever challenges might pop up." He paused and looked down at the parchments scattered across the room, "I'm certainly not making it any easier on myself working on the floor."

He paused and looked down at the parchments scattered across the room, "I'm certainly not making it any easier on myself working on the floor."


Ella watched Professor Botros thoughtfully as he shared his sentiments on home and how sometimes you ended up right back where you started. She wouldn't mind it, ending up back at Hogwarts. This is the place that helped her realize she wasn't a freak, and that she belonged, and that she was loved. All this was quite important, yeah? "And are you glad to be back, Professor?" She didn't mean to pry or anything, the blonde was merely curious.

Ella smiled sheepishly as the older man began to laugh about the cuss jar. "He's doing a really good job as Head Boy, Oakey is." She said quietly, tucking a strand of blonde hair behind her ear. "And I think all of the student leaders are stepping up in one way or another. It seems wrong to just sit back and do nothing, y'know? It's our school too, after all." So they had just as much responsibility to chip in as everyone else. The sixteen year old tilted her head as Botros then went on to discuss working in pairs, her cheeks reddening a bit when he mentioned that his son had met his wife that way. "I...that's nice, Sir." Yeah, moving on... Grin. He thought she was doing great? "Thanks, I'm glad you think so." SIP.

Chores. That made sense. "Got it, Professor." She said, giving the man a small smile. It made sense that that'd be the first thing on the list considering the house elves resigning and everything. And then Ella's green eyes flickered to the floor and she bit her lip before asking, "Anything I can help you with, Professor?" Because she didn't mind.

And then Ella's green eyes flickered to the floor and she bit her lip before asking, "Anything I can help you with, Professor?" Because she didn't mind.

Botros flashed another big smile to the young girl, absolutely glad! "I couldn't think of a better place to spend the end of my labyrinth." Let's not get too complicated, now, Ab. His wife's voice told him gently and with a chuckle. The old man turned back to his tea, missing the faint blush of the blonde at the subject of paired Badgers. He nodded his head at her testimony on Oakey and the rest of her peers. "I expect great job from Mr. Gunter, and all of my students in general. The ones who give chanting Galdrs a chance, anyways." He laughed softly and gulped down the left tea in his cup with a few sips.

Oh, she wanted to help him? Really? He paused for a moment considering her offer. "Well, I'm sure you'll barely have time to do an old man's wishing later this term, but before you're swarmed with homework and… other chores, I'd really appreciate it if you keep my Crup company for some time during the day?" Feo perked up at the mention of his name and it was really a shame that he didn't have a tail, because it'd be wagging like crazy now. "I have some serious work to do and he misses the outdoors way too much for me." Mr. Odessa and Mr. Branxton helped with the Crup last term, but Botros didn't want to label him as their responsibility. Besides, Feo showed apparent affection for the girl, it was something to take into consideration.

The end of his labyrinth? Ella tilted her head and smiled a little, wondering how to take that. On the one hand, it was nice that the end of Botros' maze was Hogwarts. On the other, did that mean he was giving up having any more adventures and going through any more mazes? That was sort of sad in a way. He wasn't that old, was he? The blonde refused to believe he was. Nope, he didn't look a day over...well, the proper age of a Granddad. "We're really happy to have you here, Professor. You're pretty brilliant as far as teachers go." Just saying. And Ella smiled as she listened to him speak of his confidence in his students. See? Awesome Professor is awesome, DUH! "The chanting was fun, actually." Grin. "Though it made me want to dance." And nope, that wasn't embarrassing or anything.

Siiiiiiipppppppp.

Ella finished up her tea and watched Professor Botros as he seemed to debate her offer. "I'm really good at multitasking, Sir." She assured him, giving him a small smile. Wait! ...Waittttt. She got to dog-sit for Feo? "Really? I'd love that!" So yeah, she'd take the job. And her green eyes were on Feo, a broad smile playing on her lips. "I can take him for a walk right now, if you'd like. Does he have a collar and a leash?" Hmmm? Did he?! Bounce.

Feo wasn't the only one who was excited about this.

Aw, "Thank you, you're so kind." He was glad to have decided to come here, too. The older students were driving him impatient with their prejudice and bad attitude. The kids here were forever endearing, no matter how brat-ish they were.

Dancing to Galdrs! Botros laughed again, and nodded his head, "That's the spirit! With ideas like these rune masters were born, I dare say." He would love all of his students to take on Ancient Runes later on, it was no secret. The poor subject was underrated in schools. On the good side, they did have some dancing and singing to do this term concerning Ancient Runes. He smiled satisfied knowing that. The kids must like it then!

That was it for the Cruppy! The girl looking at him and saying let-us-play with her eyes. He started woofing excitedly and pulling her from her skirt, let's goooooo! Botros gestured with his hand to the excited pet, "I think he's the boss around here." The man stood up and went around his desk to make sure the pet didn't mess with his parchments on the floor. "I really appreciate it if you do. He does have an extendable leash. Here..." With his wand he tapped the Crup's neck and a navy blue collar materialized there, and a handle in the professor's hand. "You won't see the link between them but it'll keep Feo within reasonable radius of you." He handed the circular handle to the Hufflepuff Captain and gave her a big proud smile.

"Just being honest, Professor." Grin. "And you're welcome." Even if thank yous weren't necessary.

Ella giggled as Professor Botros laughed at what she'd said. It was sort of funny, wanting to dance to the chants. She couldn't help it, though. The beat was just too catchy. "Rune Masters, huh?" Grin. "I hope to do well again this term. I really do find the subject interesting." And she found the Professor even more interesting so yeah, she'd be at every class.

Somebody was excited and Ella laughed as Feo tugged at her skirt, petting his head. "Alright, alright, we're going." Grin. And how cool was it that Feo's collar just appeared like that? Seriously cool. The blonde accepted the circular handle and eyed it curiously before offering the Professor a reassuring smile. "He's in good hands, Sir." So no worries, yeah? "We'll be back in a bit." Oh and more importantly, "Thanks again for speaking to me. I hope I didn't take up too much of your time. The tea was delicious too, by the way." And the blonde set the teacup carefully on Botros' desk before headeding towards the door.

"Come on, Feo! We're going for a walk." She said cheerfully before looking back over her shoulder. "Bye, Professor!"

And they were off.

Botros nodded with his head, there was no need to thank him. "No problem, miss Bishop. Whatever you need, I'm right here." He was doing his job, technically, and he liked this part where he can talk to his students outside the classroom within this respectful atmosphere. He waved goodbye to the girl and grinned at his Feo as he pranced about following Ella outside the office.

With his Crup out of the room and the distant sound of the girl cleaning outside, Botros had a good half an hour working on the puzzle laid out on most of the floor of his office. He was up, looking for a reference book when there was a gentle knock on the door. "Come in!" It must be Ms. Dawnsel. He dropped the huge book on the desk, it landed with a thud, and wore a small smile waiting for the girl to walk in. "Just be careful not to step on the parchments on the floor." They were kind of priceless.

They were kind of priceless.
Hearing her professor ask her to enter, she slowly pushed the door open, hearing it creak slightly as it bent back. She saw the puzzle on the floor and was intrigued. "Hello again sir," she said cheerily as she took carefully plotted steps inside the office. She didn't want to step on any paper or accidentally kick a puzzle piece somewhere. That was the worst when you only had one or two pieces to go in a puzzle and you just couldn't find them ANYWHERE. So frustrating. I mean you obviously beat the puzzle since it would be a no brainer where the last two pieces needed to go, but STILL. She craned her neck to try and see the picture in the puzzle, but she wasn't quite sure what it was. "What's your puzzle about, Professor?"

Still holding the chewed up little toy bone in her hand, her hazel eyes scanned the room for Feo, but she did not see him. She had to admit she was a little disappointed, but Feo hadn't been her original reason for coming to see one of her favorite professors, so she quickly got over it. Holding out the bone for him to hang out to, she said, "Your couches should be all clean now, and I found this underneath one of the sofas. I though Feo might be missing it." She smiled and stood near a chair, not sure if she should go ahead and sit or wait to be asked to. She decided to keep standing and observed all of old looking books and papers all around his office. She'd never been in a professor's office before, so she was keen on all the details.

She'd never been in a professor's office before, so she was keen on all the details.

He waved amiably at her , "Hello again, miss Dawnsel." And the Ravenclaw definitely showed the house's most fascinating trait as soon as she reached his desk. Botros chuckled, doing quick comparison with the Hufflepuff that was here a moment ago, "It's definitely not a picture puzzle if you're trying to make it out." He moved around the desk to stand on the side and pointed with his cane at the ornaments on the parchments, "The research department in Istanbul's WU discovered those writings somewhere north of Turkey. They were chanted to appear only to wizards with certain backgrounds and blood. The research team were taking snapshots of the script when the place..." He paused and looked at the little girl. "Never mind this boring story. It's just something the university needed help with. Solving runic puzzles and interpreting inscriptions is one of my favorite part about being an Ancient Runes professor." Hogwarts wasn't that challenging to him, but he loved this place for being able to reach out to a younger generation.

OH! Botros face evidently showed relief and surprise as she handed him the chew toy. "Merlin, I've been looking for this all around the place. Thank you. For finding it and for cleaning that area up." Now he had more time to work on his puzzle. He turned around and went to pour some herbal tea for them both, "Have a seat, dear. Miss Bishop took Feo on a walk, he'd be attacking your face with love if he saw you holding that toy for him." A soft chuckle came out of his mouth just as he handed her the cup, and refilled his own. "I'm really glad that you're taking those... chores very well." He appreciated the kids who turned the tough situations into challenges and went head-first without complaining or grumpiness.

He appreciated the kids who turned the tough situations into challenges and went head-first without complaining or grumpiness.



She glanced at him and then back to the pieces he'd been examining. Oh, she thought, finally seeing them up close Yes these are interesting...Definitely not your regular pictures of puppies or horses they usually put on puzzles... She listened to him begin the back-story for his work and looked at him when he stopped in the middle. "Boring? Are you kidding me?" she let slip, an automatic expression of her interest. "Pardon me, professor, I didn't mean to sound rude," she said, embarrassed at speaking out of turn with a professor. "I think it's very interesting actually." In fact, she found it so interesting that she momentarily forgot why she'd come in the first place. She leaned closer to the symbols, amazed that they'd only been found just recently. "And only to certain backgrounds and blood you said?" She looked them over more, thinking. "Do you think it's a kind of warning, to certain people? Maybe something a group that another group didn't want around?" She took a step to her left to see another snapshot. "Or perhaps it was some sort of exclusive knowledge. Sort of like a secret society, and only those who qualify are allowed to know what they knew." Her imagination was running wild now, seeing images of quiet meetings in the night, secrets of power and wisdom being passed through bloodlines only to the chosen few. How exciting! She really hoped the university and her professor could figure it all out. She straightened up again and looked to her professor, full of vigor for the subject. "I'd love to help if I could...not that I'd be of much assistance though." She knew she barely had even an apprentice's grasp on the subject, but she still liked the idea. Eliza Dawnsel...Rune Investigator. She looked back to the snapshots and said, "Or well, if you figure them out, would you let me know? I'd love to hear how it turns out!"

She smiled brightly and took the seat he offered. "Oh you're welcome! It was no trouble. It must've just been hiding," she said, joking. Oh, and Feo's with Ella? She thought that was nice that Feo got to mix up his socializing a bit, being at a school with lots of students. "Well I'm glad he'll be happy to see his toy again! That's nice of you to let us," meaning her fellow students, "spend time with him. He's such a cute little guy." It made her miss her pets at home, but she knew she had so much to concentrate on at school that a pet would be difficult.

She raised her cup to have a taste of the tea he'd given her. The aroma was very unique - much better than what they'd had to use in Divination. The taste was soothing and warmed her all the way down to her toes. It was a lovely feeling, especially after all of that cleaning she'd been doing lately. "Thank you very much for the tea, Professor. It's very nice." She took another sip and savored it a moment before swallowing. "The chores were...unexpected, but it's actually been nice to help out. I suppose it makes me feel more useful, so that's always good. Although..." She didn't want to speak ill of the school, but she was concerned about their choices with their financial advisers. "...I am a little worried about what's going to happen. And, well, I hope tuition doesn't get raised because of it." That wouldn't be fair in her opinion at all, to pass off the responsibility to the parents when they weren't the ones balancing the checkbook around the castle. "But I have learned a lot of useful cleaning spells as a result," she added, trying to stay positive.

"But I have learned a lot of useful cleaning spells as a result," she added, trying to stay positive.

Botros chuckled when the little girl lost control of herself and acted like a true kid. It was okay with him when youngsters did that occasionally, it meant they weren't intimidated by him and felt close to him - well, as close as you could get to someone double your age. This Ravenclaw, however, was everything a Ravenclaw student should be! Ab watched her analyze the information he gave her and lay them out in an organized manner. "That's very, very good, Miss Dawnsel. Have you considered doing Runes after school?" He had his elbows on either side of his chair, fascinated by his students once again. "Runes is a vast branch of study." She didn't have to be a teacher if she didn't want to.

However, talking about career choices with students this young was too early. Botros knew this and he waved his hand dismissively, "Don't worry about it for now. But I will keep you in the loop." He grinned at her, forgetting that he has a forgetful memory. "Feo loves to play so often. My wife used to play with him before, but my back and knees can't take all his jumping. I'm glad there are people willing to fulfill this for him here." He of course meant most children. Feo didn't seem to hate any of them so far... not a surprise considering he gets along with anything that moves.

Oh another worried student. Botros nodded seriously with the girl expressing her woes. "It's a drastic change to you all, we understand this." Well, some of them do. "But we can't have ourselves worrying about what's going to happen. Let's take this one step at a time. So far, everyone has been doing a great job of keeping their end of this big responsibility." He got up to sit in the chair in front of her, patting her shoulder in the way. "It makes me really happy to hear such optimistic thoughts, miss Dawnsel. And rest assured, the headmistress and the staff will never stand for an over budget tuition." Again, some of them.

"Thank you again, though." For cleaning. Siiiiiip.

The fourth year continued on her way corridor and knocked on his door. Then she scanned the books and picked up one of the old comic books instead before sitting and waiting for the professor.
The elderly professor was leaning on his cane, over the pieces of parchment on the floor when there was a knock. He was too focused on this impossible puzzle he didn't acknowledge the knocking until after Feo had gotten out from his hiding place and started woofing at the door. "Oh. Come in, come in!" He moved his cane and the door swung open, the small Crup speeeeeeeding toward the new visitor.

The young Ravenclaw really into the comic book she'd picked up, and so when she was called into the office, she took it along with her and held it up for the professor to see. "Can I borrow this?" It was an early edition of Martin Miggs that she hadn't gotten her hands on before and wanted to finish. Dora REALLY liked anything about muggles.

This was not why she came here though, and the fourteen year old hadn't forgotten the real reason for the visit. But she did wanna know if she could borrow this one. And have something else.

Botros leaned forward to get a better look at the magazine? oh no it was that comic book! He chuckled and nodded, "I didn't know someone would take interest in those. They're pretty old." He was, however, glad that someone other than Gunter liked comics. Botros loved them himself when he was a boy, his grandson has probably taken this addiction from him as well.

Now to remember the kid's name. He knew her, she was one of the quiet Ravenclaws who always seemed what to say in class when she raised her hand. Ab motioned at one of the seats in front of his desk and politely invited the girl to sit down, "Come in, have a seat if you will." Unless it was urgent or an emergency, but she was pretty focused on the comic book so he figured it wasn't a death-or-life situation.

Feo, his Crup, was turning around the girl rather crazily. Nothing new.

"I'm interested in everything concerning muggles, professor." Even comic books written by wizards. "We don't have a lot around my house, more tomes like your other books." She briefly acknowledged them all with a wave of her hand. They were interesting too, and she was sure he had something her grandmother and uncle didn't, but right now she wanted this.

She kept the magazine and took a seat as offered, hazel eyes going the crup at her feet. The dog was kind of active for an old man to be having, but whatever. It wasn't a jarvey, but it was still cute. Dora reached down and gave it a little pat before giving Brotos her attention.

"I was wondering if I could have something you let us use for our first lesson last year, or find out where you got it."

She must be come from a wizarding family then, just like he was. Botros smiled at her understandingly and nodded, "Yes, yes. I understand. It was one of my friends at school that introduced me to those muggle magazines, pretty impressive art with their resources." Nodnod. Feo gave the girl a couple of excited WOOF! before he sat obediently at her feet for more cherishing!

The elderly professor raised his eyebrows, both of them, and leaned back in his seat wondering why on earth did all students grow fond of Thor's Hammer? Should he be worried about that? "You're talking about the Mjollnir? Thor's hammer?" Pause. "I've been asked this question so many times, miss miraslava, and I have always declined to give a straight answer." Unlesss... "Unless you're talking about the Gandrs, which are our long term assignment for this year." BEAM. He was excited to see how those runic wands would turn out to be.

"I don't have too many muggle friends, but the ones I do have tell me loads about them when I ask." They were good that way, helping her with things she was still very ignorant about. The dog got a long thoughtful stare before Dora completely ignored it, done with giving out affections. So long as he left her alone, she would leave him alone.

She nodded her head, but didn't speak until she was sure he was done. "Miroslava." She corrected offhandedly, more focused on her reason for being here. "I'm not talking about the Gandrs, which mine is going rather well in case you were wondering." This was one of her favorite classes, of course she was doing awesome with the long term assignment. "But I'm not asking for the Mjollnir for myself, it's for a friend - my best friend - Alice Fischer. She really likes him, you see. And so I'm getting her a whole bunch of his stuff and the pendant you had would be really nice to add to my gifts. I promise it won't be used maliciously or anything. Just as a necklace."

And while she was fully aware that she could easily get a nicer one with less hassle somewhere else, she wanted to ask the professor first, for reasons. "I can pay or work for it if needed." Anything for her best friend.

Open-minded witches and wizards, Merlin knows they need them more and more. Botros remembered when the lineages were too pure and wizards were too prejudiced, his brother used to tell him insane stories, but these days it was easier and smoother - some anomalies existed but far less than before. He nodded his head simply and leaned forward on his elbows.

Aaaah, Alice Fischer. Botros chuckled, "Yes, it was brought to my attention Captain Fischer's fondness of the Norse god's legend." Pretty odd thing, if you ask him, considering her grandfather's nature. Maybe she was more like Mrs. Clark? Botros pondered over this for a moment before snapping out of it and blinking at the Ravenclaw. "Oh, you're talking about the necklace. The real one I showed you with the real runic pendant?" He leaned back again on his seat and folded his hands over his belly. "It's really a nice gesture of you to seek something your best friend desires, and that necklace is one of my valuable treasures. I've got it from an auction in Egypt thirteen years ago, but I'm sure I can point the dealer for you if you're willing to spend some cash." Pause. "Or. You and I, we can make a deal." He smiled widely, mischievously even, at the girl. "If you show me, miss Miroslava, along with your friend, Captain Fischer, that you have the potentials to possess such mystical and runic treasure, the necklace will be yours." With a big grin on his face, he started twiddling his thumbs. "I have the perfect challenge for you two if you say yes, or if you say no, I can make some calls and get you the name and address of that person in Egypt."

Feo was still at her feet, woofing and poking her leg with his face, ATTENTION! He needed it.

Dora wasn't sure if she should be hopeful or not that Botros knew about Alice's love of the norse god, but he was laughing at that at least could be taken as a good sign. "Yes, sir. The necklace is all I want." She nodded her head in confirmation and continued to listen, leaning forward a bit cautiously as he leaned back. Isidora was willing to fork over the cash and get the necklace from some dealer in Egypt. Or get her uncle to do it since that was the safer route.

But this deal sounded more fun for her and Alice than simply paying for the gift. Her eyes filled with bright curiosity and she nodded her head almost eagerly. "I prefer the challenge, professor. We both would." Or she'd convince Alice to want the challenge.

And crupie? He was getting bothersome and Dora decided that she never wanted one of them. How did you make them go away?

Mostly cause Alec reasons but for other reasons too.

Oh, a Botros! The sixteen year old BEAMED at the man, waving a little. "Hello Professor, nice to see you!" She then listened as the Ravenclaw explained why they were here. "Mhm, what he said." Y'know, cause repeating stuff wasn't exactly helpful and Ethan seemed to have thought this out much more than Ella had.

Botros tapped the door with his cane and held it open for both of them to go inside. "Be careful not to step on the parchments on the floor, they're arranged in a specific way." Bishop already knew that so it was more to the Ravenclaw boy.
Ethan nodded solemnly at Botros then got up from his seat. He was rather thankful to be going inside.. not that this was exactly something that shouldn't be overheard, though maybe it should be treated as such.. but he felt more comfortable confiding in the professor behind closed doors. The Ravenclaw Prefect followed Botros inside, figuring Ella to follow behind him as well.. but not before shooting an odd glance to the Runes professor. Parchments on the floor? Ethan looked down and sidestepped a few, being careful not to step on anything and found himself a seat in one of the posh-looking chairs.

He rubbed the back of his neck, trying to think best of how to start and how to best word what he needed to say. After a moment's thought, he looked up at Botros. "So, Professor.. I don't know if you've noticed any strange behavior lately.." He thought back for a moment to the last Ancient Runes class. Nothing out of the ordinary stood out to him there.. but it had been a while since that class, so maybe this was a more recent thing. "But I've noticed that the behavior in certain people seem to have been.. altered. And they all seem to share the same symptoms.. extreme and constant happiness and excitement to the point of being disruptive in class.. and an obsession with ice cream. I, um.. think the ice cream here might be tainted or something."

He watched Botros carefully. He knew what he was saying sounded awfully strange but once he organized his thoughts on the matter and talked to a couple people, he became more certain of his theories. He just hoped Botros didn't think he had completely lost his mind. "I talked to Ella about it a little bit about it and she suggested we talk to you.." Ethan glanced over to her, giving her a tiny smile. He really did trust her judgement on this matter.. he seemed like a logical, understanding man.. and Ethan was fairly sure he wasn't affected by the "special" ice cream. But hopefully he could help them somehow.. he was a little concerned about lasting, permanent effects.
