Default Staff Table


On a raised dais situated at the farthest point of the Great Hall stands a long table where the members of the Hogwarts staff sit and enjoy their meal while casting a watchful eye out on the four House tables. Each staff member has an assigned, cushioned chair to sit on throughout the duration of the feast, though the more notable out of them all is the throne-like golden chair in the centre reserved for the headmaster.

Keep in mind that you should not be wandering up to the staff table if you are not a staff member before Headmaster Kazmi has delivered his speech. Doing so will result in the last-minute loss of points or worse before you even made it on the Hogwarts Express. If you wish to speak with someone who is seated up here, you will have to wait until after the speech has been said and there is food and drink on all of the tables. Make sure to keep your visit brief though -- the staff were also waiting on the food to appear and are just as hungry as you.

The year was drawing to a close, Adom in particular was quite satisfied with the ending. He had plans already made for the summer and was looking forward to seeing his son visit from the Americas. Among other eventful things happening.

Madigan's usual newspaper was up, but not obscuring his view or preventing discussions from happening. It was just one of the things to do until the closing speech came.

Leanne was definitely ready for the summer break. She could see this as one of the pros to education in that a well deserved two month vacation happened every year. Although it wasn't so much a complete vacation from work, as preparation was continuous.

She observed her neighboring professor with his newspaper and wanted to ask him how his first term teaching went, but also didn't want to bother him? Usually when someone brought a book or newspaper with them, it was a sign they weren't the chatting type. Perhaps Paton was more social, wherever she was?

curly haired prefect - "sometimes I get angry!" - 30/90 - *chicken emoji* - probably @ Disney - I speak dog

Javier was exhausted and MORE than ready for a nice long break. After the chaos of the school year, which ended in the last minute brewing of an antidote in the potions corridor - he just wanted to get back home, take lots of naps, and cuddle with his cat. Not that he'd tell anyone about the last bit, though. He still maintained that he hated that cat that the universe had spontaneous gifted him a few years ago.

Also, it was Cami's last summer home before she went off to university. He had a child in UNIVERSITY. Where had the TIME gone?!

Grunting a hello to Adom and Leanne, he took his seat with a sigh and looked out at the students who were assembled. Anyone who had been affected by the spells Peeves had inflicted on them all had finally had been administered the antidote. It had taken all day, but each person - staff and student alike - was now back to normal. Or as normal as they were prior to Peeves wrecking havoc on the school.

That was also a plus about summer break. No Peeves. Thank MERLIN. That poltergeist had driven him absolutely batty this term. Thank goodness he hadn't been lying about that antidote potion that he'd helped them brew. Once they got the book in their hands, Javier had been able to confirm that he'd been giving them the correct instructions - surprisingly.

Yes, Javier was TRULY exhausted from this term. In fact, maybe he'd just...rest his eyes for a second while he waited for the feast to start. Just for a second.

Tapio had left extra time tonight to get ready for the closing feast, so he could turn up right on time, cleaned up and ready for the festivities. He'd spent the day repotting several plants he had been able to pick up on the way out of the Forbidden Forest the other night, one of them quite unusual, but he had set a timer so that he wouldn't forget and show up at the last minute covered with dirt.

Greeting Adom and Leanne on his way to the other end of the table, he eventually took his seat beside Javier, who seemed deep in thought. "Good evening, Javier, all ready for the feast, I see," Tapio said cheerfully. "Any big plans for the summer? You've got a child ready to leave the nest for university, I believe." Tapio remembered both summers when he and Isla had had to let go of one of their nestlings--those summer trips had seemed especially precious to them, knowing it would be the last time they would be together in that same way. Oh sure, their sons returned home every year (for now), but it was never the same again.

Having taken a little longer with his customary sweep of the castle prior to the feast - checking in on students he happened upon who had opted not to attend the feast for whatever reason, but also ensuring no one was capitalising on the fact it was the last day of term and were therefore up to no good - Kamran joined the rest of his colleagues at the staff dais.

It felt good - so, so good - to walk without jingling once more, and to enter a room without being announced by his own personal fanfare. These days were more sweet than bitter for that reason alone.

"Evening all," Kamran said, rather bracingly, taking up his place at the centre of the table, though he would not be seated for long. He checked his watch, and looked out over the students. "I'll give them a few more minutes, I think."

Were they talking summer plans? Kamran might have chimed in here too, were it not for the fact that his immediate plans were not hugely exciting. A fair amount of admin work awaited him in his immediate future, and then he might even consider relaxing.

Norman’s bluish-green eyes swept the staff dais as he approached, taking in Madigan with his newspaper and Hernandez… was he napping? Whatever was going on, Norman thought it best not to disturb his otherwise occupied colleagues so he kept his voice down as he greeted, “Good evening, everyone.” Each person got a polite nod of acknowledgement as he made his way to his seat at the far end of the table.

As he did so, he caught the tail end of Devries’s question. He might chime in with his own admittedly uneventful summer plans if asked. For now, he kept quiet, only half listening to the conversations going on around him as his eyes flicked toward the Ravenclaw table. His thoughts were elsewhere.

Usually when the end-of-term feast rolled around, Norman felt a sense of pride in his students and colleagues making it to the end of another chaotic year at Hogwarts. That pride was still there, but there were other emotions nagging at him. Granted he was not the type for sappy goodbyes (or really, anything sappy at all), but something about this graduating class… it hit harder than most. As he looked away in search of a distraction, he saw Nam at the memory book. Yes, he caught that incline of the head, and he returned it with one of his own.

That, Kamran determined, was more than enough time.

After one last glance up and down the table at his colleagues, as though to make just a last minute check that none had sprouted wings or turned into ice sculptures or who-even-knew-what, the Headmaster got to his feet and called for the attention of the students.

"Good evening, everyone. It seems that we have, once again, reached the end of another school year." And, as much as it tended to drag when one jingled around the place without a moment's peace, Kamran still could not deny that time had flown this term, though perhaps that was because he'd known what was coming at the end of it. "First of all, my thanks to those of you who assisted in addressing the situation involving certain powers experienced throughout the school this term. For the rest of you, thank you for your patience while it was handled."

Maybe a bit of a sweeping statement there. There were plenty who weren't exactly known for their patience - and why would they be? after all, if they weren't yet teenagers, they were children - but the lack of a huge fuss was enough.

"Next, congratulations to Gryffindor, the winners of the House Cup this year." Kamran paused to allow for applause, which he himself led. Another close race this term. "And now a final word to those of you leaving Hogwarts for good. I truly do wish you all the best in your future endeavours, and I hope that you all managed to find something that made your time here worth it, be it learning, personal connections, maybe even a sense of home, if a temporary one. Good luck in whatever it is you decide to do next." More applause, this time for the departing students, particularly those leaving who had just finished their seventh and final year.

"As always, OWL and NEWT results will be owled out in a couple of weeks. Now, to those of you who will be returning, enjoy your break, and be ready to learn when you come back to school in two months' time." Here Kamran paused, and allowed a small smile. "I'm sorry to say I will not be here to meet you in September, as I am stepping down as Headmaster. Working here has been a privilege, and I have truly enjoyed getting to know you all, and seeing what qualities you bring to this school and to the wider world."

Aaaand that was quite enough of all that.

"Now then! Enjoy your feast, and thank you for your time." Kamran cast one last look around at everyone and smiled once more before taking his seat again, just as a bounty of food appeared on each of the five tables.

SLEEPING? What?! No, Javier had definitely NOT fallen asleep. He'd been resting his eyes, of course! That was definitely NOT a soft snore coming from the man...

Naturally, he was just a LITTLE startled as Tapio sat down next to him, breaking him out of his nap little trance as he began to ask about summer plans. Right, summer. He cleared his throat and sat up, nodding at the Herbology professor with a small smile.

"Yeah, yeah, she's staying close to home though. Heading to university in London," he explained. So at least Cami wouldn't be too far away. She'd be able to come home any time she wanted if it got too stressful for her. Sadly, he'd be at Hogwarts most of the time - and hopefully when he came back for breaks, he wouldn't find his flat completely trashed from any weekend visits she'd make to the place. "Other than that though, not much else going on. What about you?" he asked.

Oh, Merlin, it was time for the speech already. He sat back, taking a sip of his water goblet as he listened to Kamran give his speech. He'd already heard about the impending resignation, of course, but it still made him sad to hear that he was leaving. It was never fun to see a colleague leave - especially one that Javier felt a good deal of respect for. He'd done a great job as Headmaster, especially considering all the curveballs he'd been thrown.

Tapio smiled sympathetically, knowing it must be hard for Javier to let his child leave the nest. Though at least he was lucky enough to be relatively close to her--Tapio often felt very removed from his family abroad, and he couldn't just apparate overseas. "I'm not quite sure, actually," Tapio responded to his colleague's question. "Isla, my wife, wants me to meet her in in Amsterdam, ready for a trip, but she won't tell me where. She's being very secretive about it!"

Tapio was just turning to ask Norman about his plans when Headmaster Kazmi began his speech. Tapio still felt sad that the man was leaving--he was the only headmaster Tapio had known so far and, being only two years at Hogwarts, and seeing him go disturbed the stability of the place, somehow. Tapio looked over the student tables to judge the reactions--students always seemed to take staff turnovers hard, even though the students themselves were usually the most transient residents of the school. They seemed to expect everything else at the school to remain always the same."

Kennedy had silently made it to the table just before the speech, nodding a greeting at his fellow colleagues. Before settling in for the end of the term feast he wanted to make sure personal brooms were ready for their owners for the train back home. Kennedy was more than eager to go home. Gabriela had told him their little Angelito was crawling and was for sure going to start walking soon. He wanted to be there and not miss that special moment. He also needed to prepare Violeta for football and/or Quidditch (depending on what she decided on). Also, Neddie was coming home for the summer after her first year at university. It was going to be a full house at the Escalantes, and he couldn’t wait for that.

Listening to Kamran’s speech, Kennedy was a bit disappointed the headmaster wasn’t sticking around. He had been a great leader at the school, one Kennedy would have liked to work alongside with more. Alas, that wasn’t the case. Glancing out at the sea of students he could see a few faces weren’t happy as well.
