STUDENTS!! Tomorrow, be prepared for a practical test of your abilities, from regulating speed to braking and sharp turns. And for extra credit, the quickest three people in each class who can properly strip down a broomstick and retie the bristles will get full marks! It's important to keep your equipment in perfect condition in weather like this -- the better it is, the less likely you'll stall in midair. See you all BRIGHT and EARLY, and if you have an questions don't hesitate to ask!!

*feels a parchment rustling in the pocket of his robes -- yet another missive from the Ministry's temperamental Auror program* To think, by this time next week I might be doing something entirely different... it just goes to show how important it is to live every moment to its fullest!!

*tucks his journal under his robes and strides out, grinning at all and sundry, for his daily invigorating run up and down the staircases*


[[Fancy house points? *SHINY GRIN~* Comment here to say how your character will do on the practical! Points will go from five (not so good) to twenty (very awesome). And don't worry, Gai's not going anywhere!]]

Let me know how your detention progresses. And remember -- don't set anything on fire!!

[[/filtered]]


..AUGH!!! I don't know how I'm ever going to get this stuff out of my hair! It had better be washable, Zidane, or I'm going for a dunk in the lake AND TAKING YOU WITH ME!!!

I hope all of you had as fabulous a Halloween as I did. Flying classes will resume on Monday before breakfast, so everybody be ready. And be sure to wear your House scarves. The Quidditch pitch can be chilly at that time of day!


[[Gai was among those leading students through Zidane's Haunted House. The marshmallow slugs paid him extra attention.]]

Yosh -- listen up, Hogwarts! It is finally time to reveal the AWESOME POWER OF THE SHAKESPEARIAN THESPIAN ..what... I mean, the news you've all been waiting for!

I, the wizarding world's GLORIOUS PROUD GREEN BEAST, am no longer your Charms TA. That post has been given back to Zidane Tribal, who SHALL BE KNOWN AS DARTH nonono, who just arrived from THE NEW YORK COMICON TO SAY... wait, is my journal acting up again? *sound of the journal being whacked with his wand* ..But never fear; I am not going away! Instead, from henceforward, I will START AND NEVER STOP ..well, that, too....

I AM THE NEW FLYING TEACHER FOR FIRST THROUGH FOURTH YEARS!!! *stares suspiciously, then draws a thumbs-up as he sees there are no more extraneous words* So you will all get to meet me on the Quidditch pitch BRIGHT AND EARLY next week for your first lesson!!


*throws open the door to his old quarters in the teachers' wing, only to find....*
..AUGHSPIDERWEBS
..I see Halloween started a little early in my room, eh? AHAHAHAHAHAReducto! Reducto!! ..hah, that takes care of them....

..how come my mail wasn't forwarded again? So many letters -- hmm.... *shuffling paper* ..wait, this isn't addressed to me--

IS THERE A GAU MEGURO IN THE CASTLE??


[[Cleared with Gau-mun. This is clearly going to lead to madcap hijinks. XDDD And all those very readable strikeouts are derived from HERE. *dies laughing*]]

*randomly writing in his journal as he walks along the outer wall*

What's all this about a festival?


I hate night patrol.....






..it happens at NIGHT.



...


AAAAAUGH!!! Sgt Johnson, there's SOMETHING IN THE SKY!!! Is that supposed to happen!?


[[Anyone who's outside near the Whomping Willow courtyard will be able to see what Gai can see on the horizon. And if you're not deep in the bowels of the castle, you probably heard him too. The picture comes from here. XDDD]]

*jogs from the Ministry entrance to a nearby park -- the same one he'd wandered through the previous night -- finds an unoccupied bench and pulls out his journal*

YOSH!!!! With my tests complete, it will soon be time to quit this happy town and begin the next month's EPIC WILDERNESS ADVENTURE, where the sights and scents of city living are replaced by insectile drones, wheeling buzzards, and the desiccating heat of the dusty desert air -- where senses must be sharp and spirits honed to the keen knife-edge of SURVIVAL!! LEE!!! Where will we be meeting? And farewell, my London friends -- MAY YOU ALL HAVE A FANTASTIC, PRODUCTIVE SUMMER!!!!!

And HEY!!!! Happy birthday, Tatsuki!!!!


[[Totally meant to post this yesterday. :D Anything else Gai does in England will have to happen in the next few days. And Tats will shortly receive an owl bearing a gift certificate for her favorite sports supply store.]]

Between Lee, Sakura, and Allen, and now hopefully Neji, our morning workout is becoming a VIBRANT SOCIAL EVENT!!! Nonetheless, we must continue to surpass ourselves in striving for excellence. As springtime hastens to fling the newborn sun over a landscape hungry for warmth, so will we hasten to greet the day with ENTHUSIASTIC VIGOR!! The sunrise has gotten earlier -- INSTEAD OF FIVE-THIRTY, WE WILL NOW TRAIN AT FIVE O'CLOCK!!!!

*pacing* I hope she'll be all right... Madame Pomfrey knows her business... the school has everything she needs... she's strong and healthy... they'll take care of her... must turn thoughts to other matters... Tim didn't have that artifact after all... but Dumbledore says it's still in the castle... perhaps I missed it earlier in the week.... maybe it fell out in Jareth's old maze.... which is near the Hospital Wing... no, think of something else... Uchiha seems under the weather... perhaps I harmed him more than I thought... but he would have sought attention... he usually does... I don't understand that man at all... Professor Masters yelled at everyone today... tempers are running high... Dark Wizards encroaching... and this place, with all its children... THINK OF SOMETHING ELSE.....

[[Due to the low survival rate among children where Gai grew up, he's overly worried by the events in progress.]]

[[Actions visible only to people who are abroad at five-thirty in the morning]]

Gai wakes up early as usual, but for once doesn't sprint down to the Great Hall to work out. He dresses quickly in the dark and slips out of the curtains of his four-poster, shivering a bit at the morning chill. For a moment he stands still, listening for any sign of life from the other seventh-years. Hearing nothing, he reaches into the very back of his desk and brings out a thin packet of flimsy paper containing a length of ribbon which smells faintly of chocolate.

He sits for some minutes looking out the window, absently winding the ribbon around his fingers. Then he picks up a quill and a sheet of paper, its faded color the burnt red of rust or old blood. He writes on it quickly for several minutes.

When he reaches the end of the paper, he folds into an origami heart without stopping to look it over again. The first rays of sunlight steal through the window, and Gai murmurs a levitating charm, guides the folded paper out into the open air, and sets it on fire. It burns quickly and brightly, leaving only a trace of ash which drifts away on the wind.

Satisfied, Gai tucks the ribbon back into his desk, digs out the books for the day's classes, and ambles down to the common room to struggle over Arithmancy until breakfast.



[[Three inches of snow, and RATS my campus is closed, which means I'm stuck on the slow, slow landline today with five people competing for the computer.

Sakura-mun, Itachi-mun, what kind of a reaction were you looking for?

Also, I'm going to draw a picture of Gai at the ball... early on, before the inevitable chaos starts. Who else wants to be in it?]]

Seven o'clock A.M.... and what a beautiful day. Crisp, clear, and ten degrees below freezing! A perfect time to warm up with a hefty exercise routine!

*looks around the Great Hall*

What a fine area to practice in. Broad, majestic, plenty of room in front of the head tables, and there are never any real crowds until breakfast starts. But if by chance everyone does get here early, I will persist! I will endure! I WILL COMPLETE MY TRAINING, OR ELSE I'LL DO THE WHOLE THING AGAIN DURING MY FIRST FREE PERIOD!!

Two hundred pushups for starters, I think -- and then... I don't know... taijutsu drills? Laps around the castle? Stances and stretches? Decisions, decisions!

And a one... two... three... four....

[[Gai will be training in the Great Hall until breakfast is served.]]
