All good things must come to an end, and while I have enjoyed my time at Hogwarts I'm afraid that I will not be returning to teach there again. I have tendered my resignation to the Headmaster, and I believe some kind house-elves are packing up my rooms and office. I believe either Hagrid or Professor Grubbly-Plank will be taking over Care of Magical Creatures from here on.

It wasn't an easy decision, but the fact is that I have a very long road ahead of me as far as recovery is concerned, and it doesn't leave much room for teaching lessons and handling magical creatures. I can't imagine having to navigate those castle staircases, not to mention charging after errant Hippogriff or Thestrals as they carry off the hapless first years. No, it's best left in the hands of someone more capable than I am now.

I won't be going back to Dogear either, not right now at any rate. It's too big of a house for just myself to rattle around in, so I'm going to take up my London flat again. It is small and easy for me to get around in on my own. I will wait until the summer, I think, to go home to the ones who will be waiting there for me.

Of course, Harry, and Sirius, my London fireplace will always be open to you both - and for that matter, any visitors who might want to call by and entertain a rather damaged fellow when they've the time. I'll be needing a bit of entertainment, I think. Not sure what to do with myself now.

It was lovely to be a part of your academic lives. Thank you for letting me teach you.

Oh, professor! I am sure many shall miss you terribly.

Well, after our conversation Saturday, I can't say as I'm surprised, though you know how I feel about this. Selfishly, I am mostly disappointed to not have you quite as near to hand as before. This place will be rather dull without you. However, I am still willing and able to assist you in any way I can with any future endeavours.

And what on earth did you say to Snape? I'm sorry I asked now; you were right. Never being mentioned was probably better. Well, Malfoy owes me a few favors, so I'll see if he can be of some help. Hell.

Can also cheer you up via owl. Just say the word.

How do you THINK I'm feeling? I'm a fecking mess, is what I am. I would clearly have to take up yoga. Hm, perhaps Parvati will know something about that.

Of course, it was worth it.

Go easy on Dean now. He can't help it. You know how that is.

Do you really have to?

Okay, that show of pleading was sincere in the whole "it won't be the same without you" sense, but of course I know that you know what's best for yourself. Won't be the same though, really.

Take care, Professor. Er, can I still call you that?

Yes sir. Remus.

Doesn't Harry get a say in this?

Does this mean we can defriend you now?

Two points to Slytherin for originality of thought.

Oh, yes--you would know all about originality of thought, Professor All-About-the-Points.

That response does not even make sense, Black. Which is hardly original, coming from you.

Since I'm not taking COMC myself anymore, it doesn't even affect me academically, but somehow it really does feel like a blow. Oh, we will miss you, sir!

Hogwarts just won't seem the same without you.

(Apologies to Professor Snape, but your icon made me laugh). Thanks, Professor. I will.

It is cold here, too. But I thought you'd found someone to warm your things?

My things are. Well, honestly, my things have been better.

There was a man in a house who let us in and we made him feel better.

Maybe I just got stuck there. I dunno.

From: [identity profile]
I get offers, but then someone usually finds something better to do. But it would be nice.

I didn't know. I've missed you every day since you left.


I dunno. Never mind.

Maybe we were too practical or realistic or hasty or something.

I dunno.

D'ya think?

For a while? I'd like that, though. I'd like that very much.

Charlie, do you think I'm fun? I used to be fun. I think they thought I wasn't fun enough.

Sorry, never mind, that was a bit heavy. But owl me, yeah?

I would like to settle in for a long while. Yes, yes I would.

Mmm. Bruises. I remember that.

I am having nothing to do with other people's things ever again. You have to make sure of that. Neither of us.

Where is that blasted owl?

Oh, Professor. I'm so sad to hear this - I hardly know what to say. Please take care.
