Default Professor Tristan Wayland's Hut



Not too far from the barn, a uniquely shaped hut is just at the edge of the Forbidden Forrest. This is not only Professor Wayland's living quarters, but it is also his office. Outside you will notice tons of wood logs and a fire pit. On the porch there are two lawn chairs. After you knock on the door you may sit and wait there until the professor is ready to see you.

When you enter the hut, you will immediately notice that the downstairs area is the Professor's office. On the walls there are many pictures of Professor Wayland with interesting creatures and different people, including his family members, friends, and mentors from school and previous occupations. There are also diagrams depicting different creatures, pointing out body parts and what they do, as well as information about what they may eat.

There isn't really room for a huge desk, but there is a roll top desk in the back right corner of the room and two comfortable chairs sit next to it. On the left side of the room is a cozy fireplace with a small black leather couch. There is also a 4 foot perch for Professor Wayland's Phoenix, Ash, to sit on; though, sometimes you might find the beautiful bird flying around outside of the Hut or perched on the roof. There are many shelves of different books. Most of the books are about creatures. The rest are a mixture of fiction, Sci-fi, graphic novels, and there might be a romance novel...or two.

Please, knock on the door first! Professor Wayland will be with you as soon as possible!



OOC: There is no waiting area thread, so please just RP your character knocking on the door and wait for Professor Wayland to answer. Also, please don't RP for Ash. You may RP that you SEE him flying around or on the roof, etc., but Ash is a Phoenix and only comes to his master unless, someone shows great loyalty to Professor Wayland.

KNOCK, KNOCK

Guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuess who's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack?

Hint: She has two thumbs and a theory that Professor Wayland is still in the midst of his midlife crisis. Yes, it was Zoryn Amari Spinnet. And this year, she was OLDER and WISER and JUST AS READY TO INVESTIGATE.

Prof W was sooooo lucky. Most Professors didn't get this many visits from the young Gryffindor. Actually, come to think of it, he was really one of the only Professors she ever wanted to come speak to.

Funny how things work, ain't it?

KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOOOOOOOOCK!!!!!

Skylar, despite being VERY into her studies had never been one to bother professors and visit their offices. She had actually only been to THREE offices in her time here; Vance, Hirsch and Reed. All three were visits that they requested her presence so the fact that she was here outside Professor Wayland's door to his hut voluntarily was a very big deal.

Knocking on the door, she rocked lightly on her feet as she glanced around taking note of the fact that his Phoenix was currently perched on the roof to his hut. Smiling up at him, she sighed... though she hadn't come here to talk about phoenixes as lovely creatures as they were .

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

"Woah" Dorian could not help the amazed gasp that came out of his mouth when he was close to the CoMC professor's office and he had spotted the phoenix flying around the hut. He had only seen a phoenix on a picture in his textbook but never a life one!

The sight of the beautiful creature caused him to nearly forget the reason why he was here until he felt something wriggling in his hands. Ammonite, his purple colored toad was trying to escape again. Remembering his reason, Dorian took his eyes away from the bird and he moved closer to the hut. Carefully letting go of one hand carrying Ammonite, the Ravenclaw knocked. "Uhm...excuse me?" he called, was anyone even home?

Tristan was just about to get ready to take a shower when he heard a knock at the door. Sighing, he peeked out the window from the balcony on the top floor of the hut to see who it was. With an internal groan, he saw Zoryn, and quickly backed into his bedroom. Of course she would be the first to come visit him this year. And he knew she wouldn't go away until he spoke to her.

She would just have to deal with the dirt and sweat. He quickly made his way down the stairs, heading for the door. This better be good.

"Hello, Zoryn. How can I help you?" He said with a small smile as he pulled the door open.

Tristan had just sat down for a cuppa when a knock came at the door. Twas the season for students to come visit Professors!
He didn't mind much. As long as it wasn't Zoryn again.

Tristan quickly took a sip of his tea, then headed to the door. To his surprise, it was Skylar. She had never come to visit him before. He hoped everything was alright.

He opened the door smiling, "Hello, Skylar! It's nice to see you." He gestured to the two lawn chairs on the porch, and walked to the one farthest away from the door. "Have a seat." He sat down before asking, "How can I help you?" It was always nice to have a student come by....other than Zoryn.

Tristan had been working on his next lesson plan when he heard a knock and a little voice at his door. He quickly finished his thought, and then headed towards the door.

The young boy standing there was probably only a first year. He was sure he knew his name. At least, he hoped her did. Once he got to the door, he pushed it open, "Hello, there! Dorian isn't it?" He said with a smile. "How can I help you today, sir?" He stepped out of the door, letting it hit the door frame as he let go of it.

It wasn't every day that Professor Wayland's favorite student came knocking on his door. But today WAS one of those days, and man, what a lucky dude he was. Honestly, coming here today made Zoryn realize that she should probably bless him with her presence more often. Poor guy was probably super lonely out here on the grounds all by himself. Of course Professor M lived here too, but two is not a company. Three is though and Zoryn would gladly make herself the third (temporary) resident of the Hogwarts' grounds. You're welcome. Xoxoxo.

Anyways, when Professor W FINALLY came to the door he was greeted with Zoryn's BIGGEST smile yet. "Professor, professor, professor," she started, shaking her head all the while. "Must help always be the reason?" HMMM. Couldn't a girl just visit her Professor just to have a heart to heart or a lowkey investigation about his age crisis?

But anyways, they could discuss this elsewhere. "It's really hot and I don't think that'll help your sweat situation," She pointed around to the general area of his face and torso. "so we should probably go inside to talk," she nodded. Clearly Zoryn Spinnet was only looking out for the man's best interests. She is such a saint.

Yes she could see the surprise evident on Professor Wayland's face when he saw her; because she didn't need extra help in the subject and again, she just didn't visit professors on her own. But despite the surprise, Skylar also noticed the smile which meant she caught him on a good day. Not that she'd ever witnessed Wayland upset, but who knew what professors did behind closed doors and they might not have liked to be interrupted?

Oh, they were going to sit outside? Well it WAS a lovely Fall day and Skylar had to admit Wayland had the advantage of an amazing view from his hut. Perhaps she should consider an outdoorsy profession? "Professor Wayland, Thank you," she nodded politely taking a seat in one of the lawn chairs he gestured to. Help? What made him think she needed help? Because it was her OWL year did everyone thing fifth year students needed help?

Biting her lip, she glanced out onto the grounds thoughtfully before gazing back at the creatures professor. "I actually just wanted to talk to you about Snitch... Nifflers specifically. I wanted to know I guess, how long before they're not babies anymore." Creatures had a different lifespan than humans, yes? "Like, how the whole niffler mating game worked." Like could she just stick Snitch and Goldilocks in a room together and then they'd have baby nifflers in a few months? Few weeks? Did the nifflers have to be a certain age before they could reproduce?

Tristan reeeaaaaally wanted to roll his eyes at her question. The strain it was causing him not to roll his eyes, came through as a chuckle instead. He wanted her to feel she was welcome...even if he didn't feel it. "Of course not, Zoryn. It is just normal for students to need help with something when they visit. That's all." He said with a grin, realizing he still had his towel in his hand he wiped the sweat off of his face and neck. Listening as she suggested they go inside to talk. Inside or outside didn't really make a difference heat wise. He only had fans inside his hut, and the breeze was picking up outside.

"Actually, I prefer sitting outside. The breeze is better." He said with a small wink. "But thank you for thinking of my comfort. It is appreciated." Though it really made him wonder what she wanted. Plus he didn't really want her snooping around which is what he figured she was trying to do. His hut was his safe space. "Sorry you caught me like this though. There was a rather large Gnome infestation over the summer, and I just got the last of them out of the greenhouses and into a section of the forest where they wont be a bother to anyone." Not that she cared...just explaining his appearance.

"Let's have a seat in the lawn chairs shall we?" He said gesturing to them. If she wanted to talk it would be outside.

Like could she just stick Snitch and Goldilocks in a room together and then they'd have baby nifflers in a few months? Few weeks? Did the nifflers have to be a certain age before they could reproduce?
Tristan nodded and smiled, "You're welcome." He waited patiently for the reason that Skylar was here. Because there had to be a reason. She was a very smart girl and generally didn't ask for help outside of class. Soon she was spilling her guts on what she wanted to know. Tristan patiently listened, holding back a sigh. Why did these students think it was okay for them to do these types of things? They were not old enough nor were they capable enough to handle mating Nifflers and taking care a litter of infants. But he knew he had to explain this to her in a gentle way.

"Well, to answer your first question, Nifflers come to maturity at two years and can start reproducing then. Your Niffler, Snitch, is just barely a year old which is why I have kept Snitch in the Infant Creatures Barn. Once all the creatures reach maturity we move them to the main barn. Usually the babies that are raised in captivity will always be in captivity, hence the creatures we have in the barn. Though some of those creatures were injured and may be too weak to go back into the wild." He paused knowing that was a lot of information to take in. He also thought for a moment about how to answer her second question. "As for mating...you must have a license and proper training to mate any creature. A single Niffler is difficult to maintain. Imagine having not only two Nifflers, but six to eight babies running around. It's quite stressful." He would know. He had taken care of too many Nifflers to count!

Now to get to his main point, "Skylar, if you are thinking of attempting to mate your Niffler, I am sorry to say this, but you are far to young, let alone your Niffler, and you don't have the proper training." He paused for a moment, "I hate to say this, but if I find out that you and another student have attempted to have your Nifflers mate, I will take Snitch back, as the adoption agreement says, take points, and give you detention. It is that serious. I don't want you trying to attempt something that you can't handle, and trust me you wont be able to." He didn't like being this frank with students, but honesty was always the best policy, even if it hurt. "You are a bright and talented young Witch. Don't make that mistake. Snitch needs you! By the way," he paused with a grin, "I have all the training and I can barely handle a litter of Nifflers." He hoped this would be enough to convince her to steer clear of the path she was attempting.

"Let's have a seat in the lawn chairs shall we?" He said gesturing to them. If she wanted to talk it would be outside.

Aw nuts.

"......." This reply caught Zoryn off guard, not that her confidence falter though 'cause she was NEVER thrown off that bad. "Are you suuuuuure, Professor?" Y'know, not that she expected the man to change his mind or anything. But it was really worth a shot. The worst thing he could say was no and even that wouldn't put a stopper on her little investigation. No matter, the vigilant would stay constantly so! "'Cause I hate that I interrupted your inside time and wanna make sure you still get a good heaping of it," yes, Zoryn Spinnet IS an angel. Thank you very much.

She did look at the chairs though, just didn't take a seat until she made sure to ask Professor Wayland about inside TWICE. That was generally the rule around here. People got annoyed when you asked three times, but if you asked twice... It wasn't pushing it just yet. The Gryffindor payed like 4% attention to the story about the Garden Gnomes. No offense, Sir. It just wasn't very relevant.

Anyways, she was here on a mission so best not to waste her time... Or his time. Not that he probably wasn't wasting it before she came. Why would he just sit around all sweaty when he could use the time to take a shower? Old people puzzled her. P U Z Z L E D her. "Just wanted to see how you've been, sir! Have you been feelin' alright lately?" Any medical conditions Zor should be made aware of? Any extra hair in the shower drain? Any... EXTRAVAGANT purchases?

HMMMMMMMMM????

Gryffindor for life Notorious Niffler

Emmeline did not usually go to professor's offices 'cept for Cami's Professor Stewart's, and sometimes Professor Marchand's. Even if she needed help on homework or something, she usually just bugged an older student in the common room. But this was kiiiiind of a possible emergency, and she didn't have time to consult library books or older students or anything.

So the second year found herself standing outside Professor Wayland's place, shifting nervously from foot to foot. She realllly hoped that this issue wasn't somehow her fault, but she HAD to tell the professor about it before it became a biiig problem. Emmeline reluctantly knocked on his door, kind of more loudly than she usually would. As soon as she'd finished knocking, she took to pacing across the porch type thing instead of sitting in one of the lawn chairs.

Heh. Tristan grinned. He knew he had caught her thoughts. He was not going to let this girl snoop around his hut. Ever. "Yeah, I prefer it outside. It's lovely out today." Despite it being warm it really was quite nice out. He grinned more at her next comment. She really wanted to do some snooping didn't she? Never going to happen, sweetheart. "Oh, I get plenty of inside time. Don't you worry about that." He said with a wink and a grin.

"Shall we?" He directed the young girl to the lawn chairs, stepping out of the doorway and onto the porch, sneakily locking the door behind him with a wave of his hand. Hopefully she hadn't heard the click of the lock. He sat down, noting that Ash was sitting on the peak of the roof watching. He didn't seem to trust this young Gryffindor much either.

Raising an eyebrow at her question he grinned, "I've been doing just fine. Feeling great." Mostly...kinda....maybe. Anyway, that would be between himself...and himself. "Sorry, I look like this. You knocked just as I was about to turn the shower on. But I am sure you understand. Most of the time this is what I look like when I am not teaching. Taking care of magical creatures is a dirty job." He paused, "Anyway, How are you doing? Are your classes going well?" He decided the best way to get the spotlight off of him was to talk about her.

But this was kiiiiind of a possible emergency, and she didn't have time to consult library books or older students or anything.

So the second year found herself standing outside Professor Wayland's place, shifting nervously from foot to foot. She realllly hoped that this issue wasn't somehow her fault, but she HAD to tell the professor about it before it became a biiig problem. Emmeline reluctantly knocked on his door, kind of more loudly than she usually would. As soon as she'd finished knocking, she took to pacing across the porch type thing instead of sitting in one of the lawn chairs.
Tristan was just coming up the path from behind his hut when he noticed Emmeline outside his front door. She had never come to his hut before, and she seemed...nervous, maybe even a little scared

"Hey, there Emmeline! Sorry, I hope you haven't been waiting long. Just taking a walk in the forest." He made his way towards the porch on his hut, jumping up onto the deck as soon as he reached it. "Everything alright?" He asked, concern clearly showing on his face.

Tristan was just coming up the path from behind his hut when he noticed Emmeline outside his front door. She had never come to his hut before, and she seemed...nervous, maybe even a little scared

Pacing had taken up so much of the Gryffindor's attention that she jumped about half a foot in the air when Professor Wayland arrived and started talking. Whirling around to face him, she forced a small smile onto her face and answered in a reallly nervous totally calm, ADULT tone of voice: "Hiii, Professor Wayland! N-not long at all... From the FOREST?" That last bit had managed to reach past all the nerves and fear in the second year's mind, 'cause the forest was realllllly interesting. Especially the unicorns and loads and loads of creatures that lived in there. She and Stasya really wanted to go back into the forest -- properly this time, with a teacher -- to try and find the unicorn family from Ancient Runes they'd seen last term.

But all of the excitement and interesting stuff about the forest would have to wait, really. Emmeline shuffled from foot to foot, biting her lip and eventually blurted out: "I--I dunno what happened, sir. Sirius has chizpurfles and I put him back in his kennel so they wouldn't get the other cruppies but I couldn't get them out of his fur and I dunno how he got them in the first place." And she had to stop there, 'cause her voice was cracking. She was half-convinced that Professor Wayland would take the cruppy away from her for this; the cruppy that had been all that kept her going during parts of last term and the rougher parts of adjusting to living with Cami over the summer. But it wasn't like she could just leave her cruppy with the bug-like magical creatures on him, either. And Cami was allllll the way in the castle, and chizpurfles got on augureys too and there were babies in the infant creature barn... Maybe leaving Sirius there hadn't been the best idea ever, but he'd been itching like crazy and whimpering and she just hadn't known what to do. The twelve-year-old turned huuuge, beseeching eyes on Professor Wayland; he'd know what to do, right?

Tristan nodded and smiled, "You're welcome." He waited patiently for the reason that Skylar was here. Because there had to be a reason. She was a very smart girl and generally didn't ask for help outside of class. Soon she was spilling her guts on what she wanted to know. Tristan patiently listened, holding back a sigh. Why did these students think it was okay for them to do these types of things? They were not old enough nor were they capable enough to handle mating Nifflers and taking care a litter of infants. But he knew he had to explain this to her in a gentle way.

"Well, to answer your first question, Nifflers come to maturity at two years and can start reproducing then. Your Niffler, Snitch, is just barely a year old which is why I have kept Snitch in the Infant Creatures Barn. Once all the creatures reach maturity we move them to the main barn. Usually the babies that are raised in captivity will always be in captivity, hence the creatures we have in the barn. Though some of those creatures were injured and may be too weak to go back into the wild." He paused knowing that was a lot of information to take in. He also thought for a moment about how to answer her second question. "As for mating...you must have a license and proper training to mate any creature. A single Niffler is difficult to maintain. Imagine having not only two Nifflers, but six to eight babies running around. It's quite stressful." He would know. He had taken care of too many Nifflers to count!

Now to get to his main point, "Skylar, if you are thinking of attempting to mate your Niffler, I am sorry to say this, but you are far to young, let alone your Niffler, and you don't have the proper training." He paused for a moment, "I hate to say this, but if I find out that you and another student have attempted to have your Nifflers mate, I will take Snitch back, as the adoption agreement says, take points, and give you detention. It is that serious. I don't want you trying to attempt something that you can't handle, and trust me you wont be able to." He didn't like being this frank with students, but honesty was always the best policy, even if it hurt. "You are a bright and talented young Witch. Don't make that mistake. Snitch needs you! By the way," he paused with a grin, "I have all the training and I can barely handle a litter of Nifflers." He hoped this would be enough to convince her to steer clear of the path she was attempting.
Oops? Had she crossed the line? Really, it was just an innocent question and she was curious like if she had to be careful when Snitch was around other female nifflers and when. Crossing her legs and then uncrossing them and then crossing them again as she listened to Professor Wayland explain about how it all worked and the serious gravity of the situation, she nodded.

"Oh I realize that. I mean even over the summer, he was great and we have a big enough yard, but I wasn't immune to how much work he was..." But it was also fun too and she didn't regret taking him home to meet the family.

Main point though. "I wasn't." Not really, anyway; the thought HAD crossed her mind, but ... her brother just had a baby. She had another half-brother who had a baby. Human babies were a lot of work, so she could only imagine creature babies. "I think I was just concerned and wondering more if and when I needed to use precautionary measures when he played with other nifflers." Female nifflers, specifically. "But it's good to know that I have another year then before I have to be more cautious of who and when he plays..." Nod, nod. "Thank you." For the mating information and for the complement about her being bright and talented; which reminded her...

"Okay, one more thing we wanted to ask you about... We were considering possible careers." Duh, she was a fifth year and had started prepping for OWLs last year, so OF COURSE she'd have been thinking about her post-Hogwarts life. "And one of the things that crossed our mind was a career in creature healing, so I wanted to know what you knew about it. What you might expect from me, minimum, to take NEWT level classes and if there's anything in particular I should read up about."

He said with a smile. "How can I help you today, sir?" He stepped out of the door, letting it hit the door frame as he let go of it.
While he waited, Dorian looked back up at the phoenix and he began to wonder why it was here. Was the bird from the professor? But he was sure he had read that phoenixes were very very veeeeery difficult to tame.

A voice at the hut entrance got his attention and the boy looked away from the phoenix. "It is" he said as the man asked if his name was Dorian. "Is that phoenix yours?" he asked as he pointed somewhere above.

At that moment, as he had pointed to the sky, Ammonite his purple colored toad made a jump. The creature landed on the ground and tried to get away. Having had this kind of situation probably a hundred times a day, the Ravenclaw quickly bend down and grabbed the toad. "It's actually about him" he said as he straightened back up and held the purple colored toad for him the see. "He keeps trying to escape so i was wondering that maybe there was something i could do about that?" he said.

"Sorry didn't mean to startle you." He said with a grin. At least he didn't scare her too badly she was quick to keep her composure. "Yes, from the forest. There are many creatures in there that I have to look after as well." He gave her a wink. It was all part of the job.He like walking around the forest too. It was very peaceful, despite the creepy.

Chizpurfles. Some how he wasn't surprised. They were so attracted to Crups it was ridiculous. He could see that Emmeline was extremely upset about this so he patted her shoulder, "Not to worry. There is a potion that gets rid of them instantly. I have plenty of it in my storage. Give me a moment and I will grab it for you." He walked past the young Gryffindor and into his hut. After a few minutes, he came back out, potion in hand. "Here you are! Put the whole bottle on him and make sure you have gloves on. After 10 minutes, rinse him off and he should be good as new." He gave her a reassuring smile. "If that doesn't help we may have to call the ministry and get some one from the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures down here because we may have an infestation on our hands. So lets hope it's just on him." He really didn't want to have to call the ministry.

What you might expect from me, minimum, to take NEWT level classes and if there's anything in particular I should read up about."
Tristan listened and nodded a long as the young girl spoke. He was glad she realized how much work Nifflers were, and was glad to hear that she wasn't planning on mating her Niffler.

Tristan nodded again, "Yes, now he wouldn't be able to reproduce even if he tried to. So you should be fine for now. After he turns two is when you should be more cautious, and if you want to breed him in the future, please get a professional to do it." He gave her a small smile. "You're welcome." She really was a very bright witch and he wanted to see her succeed in all things. That's what he wanted for all of his students, success in life.

Ah, interesting question. "Well, creature healing is part of Magizoology. So not only did my education consist of learning about all creatures, how to feed them and take care of them, we also learn about the proper way to heal them. So if you want a career in healing creatures, go for Magizoology. You learn it all." He paused, "As for NEWTs just study every creature in all the past Care of Magical Creatures books. Make sure you know the best food for them, how to clean them properly, and how to treat any ailments they may have. I would also suggest spending time with the creatures in the barn. Hands on is always best for learning." He said with a grin. Tristan was very happy to hear that she was interested in a career with creatures.

Tristan smile at the young man. He had gotten his name correct! 1 point for him! Heh. Ah, Ash had just landed on the top of the Hut when the young boy pointed him out. "Yes, he is mine." He said with a grin.

Tristan watched as a purple toad jumped out from the boys hand, and then Dorian picked him up rather quickly. It almost seemed like it was routine for him. That wasn't good. "I see. Have a seat." He pointed to the lawn chairs, went and sat down in the chair furthest from the Hut door. "Well,
it might be that he is just scared. How long have you had him?"
It took time to train any creature, and some creatures were impossible to train. Toads and Frogs were ridiculously difficult.

"Okay, if you're suuuuuuuuuuuuuuure," she gave him a look doused with DOUBT, but lowered her bum into one of the chairs outside. Aw, nuts! This was so not going according to plan. At least she still had a plan though, 'cause man if she didn't have a back up then this whole thing would be absolutely pointless. Luckily, the Gryffindor had a knack for making things up as she went, which meant she was plenty adaptable. Outside would have to work. It just meant that she'd have to find a way to get him to do some more talking.

He was feeling great? Zoryn didn't buy it. Obviously this was all a cover for the horrendous heartache that came along with having a crisis of the midlife variety. In truth, Z didn't know much beyond what Professor Hirsch told her about them, but her imagination knew how to stretch. Instead of questioning the man, however, she just smiled and nodded. "I'm just glad to be back at Hogwarts, sir. The classes are boring, no offense, but the summer holiday was WAY more boring," she explained. "Well except for when I got to hang out at Faith's house, 'cause that was MEGA fun and when I got to go shopping at Diagon Alley--" As she came to a pause, she realized WAIT A MINUTE THIS WASN'T ABOUT HER.

THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT HIM.

Ahem.

"Have you made any purchases lately, Professor?"

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM? Anything EXTRAVEGENT?

Tristan listened with a grin on his face. He knew if he could distract her by asking her questions about herself, she would be so enthralled by that, that she wouldn't ask him crazy personal questions. "No offense taken." He said with a nod. He knew school could be boring. It was why he did so many things that got him in trouble while he was here as a student. "Sounds like you had a great holiday." He said with a smile at her pause.

Was she back on this again? Well, he could give her answers. Where they truthful? Only he would know. "Uh, purchases?" He paused pretending to think, "The only purchases I made this summer were train tickets to Wales to visit my family, a wedding present for the Professors' Marchand, and supplies I needed for the animals." He said with a smile. He had also bought a new muffler for his motorcycle, but that he wouldn't tell her or her theories of him being in a midlife crisis would jump to life again. Not that they ever died. "What about you? Buy anything fun this summer?" He said with a grin.

......

Zoryn gave the man a pointed LOOK. Had he not been listening this ENTIRE time??? Zoryn JUST SAID that her holiday was MEGA boring exceeeeept for that other stuff. What part of boring sounded GREAT?!?! He was clearly too old to remember what having fun was like. This was worse than she thought.

The Gryffindor made sure to make some mental notes.

"You didn't buy anything for yourself? That's kinda a sad life, Sir," she nodded. "Isn't that like the point of teaching? To make money so that you can buy yourself nice things?" 'Cause he certainly wasn't here for his love of students. Also, his whole story sounded v fake. Zoryn wasn't buying it one bit.

"....." AGAIN, WHAT WAS WITH THE NOT LISTENING?

"I already told you, I bought stuff at Diagon Alley! Weren't you listening, sir?"

The Gryffindor made sure to make some mental notes.

Tristan grinned at her next comments. He could tell Zoryn was either confused or not convinced. But he would stick to his story. "Not a thing. I'm not a very materialist person, plus I don't have a lot of space in my hut." He chuckled at that next pair of questions. "Zoryn, we don't teach for the money. Professors actually don't make all that much. In fact, I made more money working at the Sanctuary than working at Durmstrang and Hogwarts." Not that he minded. He really enjoyed educating young witches and wizards about magical creatures.

Did she really think he hadn't been listening? "No, no! Of course I was. You said you went shopping, I heard that, but you didn't say what you bought. But you don't have to share if you don't want to. I just thought it would be interesting to hear." Though he was sure most of it consisted of things she needed for the new term. He was lucky this was keeping her distracted.

The silvery bearcat runs gracefully, despite it's size, for the hut, the intensity in its eyes apparent to even a passerby.

It leapt through the door, in all its smoky white essence, and said in Paul Myers' voice.

'I need you down by the bulletin board. Another incident has happened. There are a couple of students there who will fill you in - more blood. Quickly now, Wayland.'

And just like that, the patronus was gone.

Tristan had a sack full of horse feed in his arms when the Bearcat patronus approached. He listened intently to Paul's message, blue-brown eyes going wide with shock.

He dropped the bag of feed and ran as fast as he could towards the castle, hoping he made it there in time.

............... Zoryn eyed the man.

She was trying to calculate things in her head and honestly it didn't make much sense. Professor W was totally lying. Zor could see it through his teeth. Or at least, she thought she could. Professor Vance did say she had the eye. Sort of.

"What." Professors don't teach for the money??? "Then what DO you teach for?" 'Cause it certainly wasn't for his love of children, that's for sure. Zoryn definitely didn't get those vibes from the man. He was usually a big sour fwooper. And that's all Zor had to say about things. (Jk she always had more to say about things BUT THIS WASN'T THE POINT RIGHT NOW!!!).

OH. Maybe Professor W started teaching so that he could find purpose in life again!! It all started making sense once more. He was sad because he didn't have a reason to live 'cause that's what a midlife crisis does to you! And he came to Hogwarts to find his sense of purpose !! LIKE CLOCKWORK.

"Do you take any medicine?"

Just wondering.

"Well, 'cause you should know what I bought. You people are the ones who right our supply lists," she nodded matteroffactly.

Just wondering.

"Well, 'cause you should know what I bought. You people are the ones who write our supply lists," she nodded matteroffactly.
Tristan chuckled at her response to his remark. He really didn't teach for the money. "You know that moment when something about a subject just clicks," he said snapping his fingers, "in your brain and you totally get it?" He asked hoping she would understand what he was talking about. "I love watching that happen, on top of talking about a subject I love and have a passion for. Teaching isn't about the money. It's about the happiness we get when molding the young minds before us." At least that was how it was for him. He couldn't vouch for the rest of the staff but he was sure that was part of their love for teaching as well.

Tristan raised his eyebrows at that question, "No, I don't, and it isn't your business to be asking such things." He said with a pointed look.

"Well, I figure you didn't just buy school supplies. Of course I know you had to get that. But if you didn't get anything else that's fine as well." For a moment all this talk of Diagon Alley made him wish for Ice Cream. He wondered how Isley was doing. He was missing her Ice Cream at Florean's right about now.

Anything that could keep his mind distracted AND make him feel useful was time well spent these days. In the aftermath of the Room of Requirement, being called a hindrance point blank to his face, the Hufflepuff had really struggled not relapsing in to his quivering and shattered soul self that had been after the Monster events of his first year. But it was impossible and the nightmares were coming back and the nearly 14-year-old felt as worthless as ever. Which was why he had been spending almost excessive amounts of time down here in the Creatures area. This was the ONE thing he knew how to do and do WELL. Tending to the fire salamanders had almost become an obsession for him and that rabidly eager gleam was more than prominent in the Hufflepuff's eyes as he knocked on the professor's door.

Like...lots of knocking. Enthusiastically pleading for the man to open up QUICK.
