This is a reminder to all students that Herbology is a required class for years 1-5.  Even if it's not your area of speciality, I expect to see you putting your all into homework and labs.

Those who are continuing in OWL and NEWT levels have a meeting with me the first morning of school.  You should have already received your specialized equipment lists, but if you somehow haven't please contact me immediately.

 [He's worried enough that Thijs isn't going to worry about being polite.  It's also pretty rare for him to write something during the summer holiday.]

It might not be my place to say, but I hope none of you are doing anything reckless.

The recent news is upsetting; try to watch out for yourselves.

[After working extremely hard managing all the student exams he's just plain tired and not a little skeptical about the field trip.]

 [Filtered to staff]  

Who else is being roped into the field trip . . . don't you think we should have a strategy this time?  It's not like we can give them detention when it's the end of the year.

[Fussy as usual.]


Don't screw off on the field trip; you just end up looking like idiots.
vandertulp: (-this is what you're going to do-)
[Heavily filtered to students]

Is there something wrong?  Some illness going around that none of you are telling your teachers about?  What's up.

[After all, he knows that nothing of his is missing, so he's wondering if maybe they've don't something else they shouldn't have.]

You should watch out for each other, you know.

[Nag nag nag.]

[Heavily filtered to TEACHERS]

The students seem pretty out of it lately.  It's not just me, right?
vandertulp: (-tall-)
Thanks to those who have been helping in the greenhouses. I'll award you each 15 points. That makes 30 points for Hufflepuff and 15 for Ravenclaw.

For the rest of you; the offer still stands, but only if you aren't afraid to get a bit dirty.

[filtered to Tsuna.]

The mandrake pot is working fine.

[which is his way of saying, 'nice job kid and try not to hurt yourself'.]

[ooc: These points go to Jade and Souji (for the bunnies) and Tsuna; in these threads]

In light of our headmaster's announcement, this is a reminder for all students.

Whether you simply want to practise, or whether I need to give you some task, there is always work to be done in the greenhouses and classrooms. [sigh.]

The potential for house points is never-ending, really.

[ooc: Whether they want to just work, or whether they want to wash the windows, weed, feed the bunnies, whatever they'd like, all students are welcome. ]
vandertulp: (-hnnngh-)
[So after getting back late after the weekend with the other staff, Thijs doesn't really have a Happy Valentine's Day at all.  The plants are much, much more aggressive today, and after both harassing and being harassed by them enough he's cancelling classes. A person can only cast so many charms to keep them at bay!  It also doesn't help that the Tentaculas' idea of affection is about the same as an adolescent boy's, so they've been playing pranks, messing up the classrooms, and taking Thijs' things all day.  They've also managed to get a good hold on most of the doors.]

There are NO Herbology classes today or for the rest of the week.  Again, absolutely no Herbology classes, this applies to all years, all houses. 

DO NOT come to the greenhouses or even be in the near vicinity.  

Classes will resume wh----

[And the ink runs off rather ominously but really, it's just the plants.  Hey, he needs that journal, you stupid vine.  Now for another tug-o-war; and the students and staff probably won't be seeing him for a few days.]
vandertulp: (-this is what you're going to do-)

What's been done to my rabbits?!  They don't wear clothes!

How much more clear do I need to be?  Don't hold them when I'm not there!

They won't even look at me.  The carrots will be appreciated but they still seem really put out.  Pofftertje keeps chewing the ribbons.. .

[Reference this post]

vandertulp: (Default)
I'm obliged to those who helped with the rabbits; they're all sound and the new hutch has been suitably charmed to prevent them chewing through again.

Keep forgetting they're so intelligent sometimes.

Those who gave help in searching will be rewarded House Points, 5 each.  I'm sure that I know who you are, but if you suspect I might have overlooked your effort please leave your name.  I'll know if you are lying and you'll lose 10 House Points.

As it's Friday, this is also a reminder that there are classroom work hours, and the greenhouses will be open.  I've already told you who you are so I expect those who need to make more effort to show up and improve their marks.

[Best honest now.  The students he has are Alfred, Sana, Souji, and Tamaki.  Any others who might have helped search need to leave their names.]

[Yes, Thijs here keeps rabbits in the greenhouses. They keep him company and eat a good amount of veg. But right now . . .well, he's quite a bit more upset than he lets on that they seem to be missing.]

The rabbits are gone.

Please take care if you see them and either let me know or bring them to the greenhouses immediately.  I'll write you a late excuse if you are worried about being late to class.

I think the big orange ones -Aardappel and Pompoen- chewed the latch on the hutch. Both the big ones and the two small dwarf breeds; they're white.

Don't let me find out who left the door open in greenhouse four!

[And now you all get a very unhappy Thijs stalking the corridors.]

[ooc:  the big bunnies' names are Dutch for Sweet Potato and Pumpkin and they look like this.  Orange . . . ]

[filtered]Zus? It's important, Marijke.

Has anybody seen Marij-- Emmeline? Tell her I'm looking for her if you see her, please.

Stuck in the greenhouses today.

[Feeling a bit guilty over his sister's lack of parents for the parents' weekend, her brother is looking to spend some quality time. He's not even going to bicker today. Much.]

[ooc:  Sorry for posting it late but there's actually a thread for Herbology in the class log now.  It's right HERE. ]
vandertulp: (Default)
Since I have never posted one of these before for this character I'm not going to change the date.  Hope that's alright.

[not bothering to filter because ugh]

Sorry that I missed the staff party.

 Was asleep.

[yes because he felt tired all day and right after classes Thijs crashed with a pretty nasty bug; he's feeling a bit better though, thanks to some helpful herbs.]
vandertulp: (Default)
Your assignments are due; late assignments will lose house points. So will incomplete work, for that matter. Just get it in so I don't have to wait for it; it's not like I'm assigning you anything over the Christmas holiday, so you have no excuse.

[see how decent he is? He's patting himself on the back for it, too.]

Incidentally, the Christmas spirit everybody is showing is really something!

[Which means he's laughing at you in private. Extensively.]

[ooc: You can turn your homework in here, on this post. ]
vandertulp: (-this is what you're going to do-)
Due to Professor Honda's unplanned absence, Thijs will be posting up homework assignments.


Year 1: You will continue to work on your toadstool diagrams. Remember that you've got to pick 10 that qualify as 'most common' and you must draw them keeping scale and colour in mind. Accuracy is important, along with 3 key features of each labeled. We've been doing them all along; if you haven't been doing your homework you have catching up to do. They are due this week.

Year 2: You're going to write 12 inches of parchment detailing proper care and harvesting of any of the herbs from your chapter reading. Don't skimp; you will need them in class.

Year 3:  You should remember that we talked about your lab in class and I handed out instructions.  You need to pass off both dragon dung fertilizing methods we discussed by demonstrating them to either Professor Honda or myself.  If you don't finish in class you must come to the lab or schedule a time with me so one of us can watch.

Year 4: You must absolutely be caught up in your chapter reading with the summaries complete. If you are not you'll have difficulty with the bobotubers. Anybody who forgets their gloves in class will lose house points.  

[Homework turn-in code:]

[There's nothing but a big scorch across the page, and some prodigious cursing.]
vandertulp: (-this is what you're going to do-)
Why another dance. . .

[to [ profile] whatagood_boy  FUUMA dun touch his bb sis]

You won't be going to that dance if you think you're going with my sister.

[to [ profile] bezwerinkje  bb sis why do you do this to him ]

Don't go with him, sis. You could ask any other kid!
vandertulp: (Default)
[So after waking up in the greenhouses and have a heart to heart with his favorite dead professor and colleague. . .]

There's something really beyond strange going on here if even the dead are back with us. 

Still, if those dead have joined us in this odd reunion. . .

Hnn. . . [head still hurts because you know just a bit ago he was pretty sure he was going to be cursed into oblivion]

[and have some muttering in Dutch, along with the word 'zus'..]

[Yes that's right sis, he'll be looking for your ghost.]

vandertulp: (-this is what you're going to do-)

I do not want to repot these Mandrakes.  Can't you kiddies just deal?  Besides, the older they get the more damaging the scream is going to be!

Labs will start this week and anybody who doesn't have proper ear mufflers is getting a failing grade.

And several hours of unconsciousness.

. . . lightweights.
