Grayson.

02/22/2019 11:59 PM 

Task 1

It was a normal day and Grayson had just gotten done with playing a gig. It wasn't anything fancy. But it was something that would get his foot in the door. He was using his parents connections and it was definitely helping. But sometimes, he also wanted to pick up little things here and there on his own. He was about to head back to his car and head home when he heard his cell phone ringing. He could only imagine who was calling him or why.

He answered the phone on the second ring and found that it was the family lawyer who was telling him it was urgent that he get home. He didn't understand why it was urgent that he get home. But he didn't waste any time getting into his car and driving back to the spacious home that he had spent his entire childhood in. That in itself had a lot of bad memories associated with it given how much his parents had pushed him off on the nannies and other household help. But he shook himself from his thoughts and drove back there.

He pulled up awhile later and found the house surrounded by cars. He didn't understand what was going on. It seemed bizarre to say the very least. He made it inside and found the lawyer who had called standing inside. "What the hell is going on?" He asked, as he stood there with his hands in his pockets a bit nervous. The lawyer was about to explain when he saw police officers leading his father out in handcuffs. "Dad?!" He exclaimed, the urge to stop them from taking him away was great but he also knew that he wasn't in any place to do anything about it. 

His father tried to say something but the police pulled him away without much of a word. Gray just stood there in shock as he tried to process that his father had apparently been arrested for some reason. He felt his heart drop from his chest to his stomach. Sure, the man had never been a very good father. But he was the only father he had, and the idea of him going to prison and never seeing him again was a bit much for Gray to bear. 

Before he could even process his feelings on the matter, he heard another voice and he looked up to find his mother being carted off in handcuffs, as well. "Mother? What the hell is going on?!" He turned to the lawyer. "Tell me what's happening!" He said, obviously upset now. His voice was shaking with emotion as his hands moved from his pockets to his sides and he balled them into fists. He was heartbroken but also ready to fight.

The lawyer explained that his father had been brought in for embezzlement and this mother had apparently known about it. So she was being charged as an accessory. He was going to do everything that he could. But he didn't know if there was anything that he really could do at this point with the evidence that the police had.

Gray watched as the police took them away and he waited for everyone including the lawyer who was apparently useless to leave. Then he went up to his old bedroom and sat on his bed. The room hadn't been changed. It was probably the staff who hadn't changed it. But at this point, he didn't care who hadn't changed it, and he let himself break down over the fact that his life as he knew it was actually over. He just sat there and cried for awhile.

My Big Announcement

Hello and welcome. 


First things first, I just want to say that I haven't been around for a number of reasons. I briefly lost my interest in RPing the characters of Jerome and Jeremiah because (a. Gotham went on a really long break between season 4 and season 5 and (b. A lot was happening on other accounts of mine so my muse for these Jokers went away, unfortunately. Another reason I haven't been around is that, yes, I got overwhelmed by all the ones who wanted to RP with me. I'm an introvert IRL, so I hope you can understand that I can only take so much before I run away like a big baby. Sadly, the people who wanted to RP with me aren't on here anymore. Have I really been gone that long? I'm sorry to whoever wanted to RP and I never responded. I've been working on it.

I have a Discord that I do a lot of RP on: Dorkness#3306

When it comes to the Joker, I kinda have trust issues as well. The last time I was REALLY into RPing the character, I got screwed over by someone I really liked writing with. Then out of the blue the person told me that I was RPing the Joker wrong by having him gay and paired with Bruce. For a while, that ruined the Joker/Batman ship for me. Fortunately, I'm back to being really obsessed with that. So don't be surprised if Jeremiah/Bruce innuendo happens. If you don't like that, I will respect your decision and leave it out of RP. But let me know. Don't just leave me because I said something you didn't like. I know we all hate confrontation, but I'm a person I have feelings. Anyway...I just felt like this needed to be said.

Now, on to the announcement!

I know I said I would be RPing both Jerome and Jeremiah on here, but lately my interest has been shifting toward just Jeremiah. I could still RP Jerome if the SL allows it, but as of today(the day the Ace Chemicals episode premiered), I will be RPing only Jeremiah.

That's all I had to say, that's my big announcement. I hope to remember to be around more, but that's also why I included my discord so if I'm not around here, someone can still catch a hold of me since I'm on Discord almost all the time. 

But please just remember that I'm an introvert and socially awkward irl. It takes me some time to warm up to people. Especially since I've been burned by RP "friends" so many times in the past. I've been mentally scarred. Be gentle with me. :)

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Professor of Magical Creatures

02/21/2019 09:28 PM 

About Professor Kettleburn, me on Magical Creatures & Beast.

"Professor Kettleburn survived no fewer than sixty-two periods of probation during his employment as Care of Magical Creatures teacher."
—Kettleburn's extreme recklessness
Professor Silvanus Kettleburn
 was a wizard who, after graduating from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, served as professor of Care of Magical Creatures. His recklessness and the nature of his subject resulted in him losing all his limbs but one arm and half of one leg. He retired in 1993 but still made visits to dragon sanctuaries.

Biography
Early life
Silvanus Kettleburn was born to a wizard and a witch on 22 November. He received magical instruction at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, in which he was Sorted into Hufflepuff[1], and presumably achieved high marks in Care of Magical Creatures, later leading him to become a teacher in that subject.

Professor of Care of Magical Creatures
Under Headmaster Armando Dippet
"...it was several months before the Great Hall lost its pungent aroma of wood smoke, and even longer before Professor Beery's head reassumed its normal proportions, and Professor Kettleburn was taken off probation..."
—The Fountain of Fair Fortune incident.
At some point during the early to mid-1920s or earlier, Silvanus met and befriended the famous Magizoologist Newton Scamander, whom he helped with his best-selling book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by providing some of the information it contained about Chimaeras.

At some point in his life, Kettleburn became the Professor of Care of Magical Creatures at Hogwarts School under Headmaster Armando Dippet. During his time as a professor, Kettleburn amassed sixty-two periods of probations.[5] One of which was when a worm he provided for the play of The Fountain of Fair Fortune (which was in fact, an Engorged Ashwinder) exploded and started a fire. This started a duel between the girls playing Amata and Asha, in which Professor Herbert Beery was caught in the crossfire. Beery's head was reported to have been disfigured. It took him a long time for it to return to normal, which led to his retirement as a professor.

At some point in or after the 1969-1970 school year, a student by the name of Patricia Rakepick approached him for information about how to enter the Forbidden Forest undetected. Seen as how she was his most gifted pupil at the time of her inquiry, he questioned her as to why she wanted to go into the forest, to which she replied she merely wanted to explore it and to study the magical creatures that dwelled within it, and told him she meant to become a Magizoologist after she left school. Accepting this explanation, he advised her to use a broom.

Under Headmaster Albus Dumbledore

"By the time I became Headmaster, however, Professor Kettleburn had mellowed considerably, although there were always those who took the cynical view that with only one and a half of his original limbs remaining to him, he was forced to take life at a quieter pace."

—Kettleburn mellowing due to his extensive injuries
By the time Albus Dumbledore, the Transfiguration Professor, had taken over from Professor Dippet as Headmaster, Professor Kettleburn had calmed down a considerable amount, though this was likely because he only had one and a half of his original limbs left: one arm and half a leg.

By the 1980s, Professor Kettleburn had long become one of the regulars at the the Hospital Wing at the school, where he had been treated by Poppy Pomfrey for and subsequently recuperated from various creature-induced injuries at the Hospital Wing no less than nineteen times, to the point where he eventually had a bed reserved just for him. Even so, he apparently took this with a surprising amount of good humour, almost affectionately referring to the Hospital Wing as his 'home away from home' during his twentieth time visiting. On that particular occasion, Professor Kettleburn and Rubeus Hagrid had been transporting a large number of magical creatures to the school for teaching purposes for the Care of Magical Creatures, when they accidentally lost control over them and they escaped and overran Hogwarts Castle, and got injured while in the process of rounding them up.

During the mid- to late portions of the same decade, he also spent a considerable time asking for students help in locating a Chimaera loose some where on the grounds of Hogwarts.

During the 1987–1988 school year, he taught Fourth years, such as Jacob's sibling, classes on several magical creatures including bowtruckles[8], nifflers[9], streelers,[10] and kneazles.[11] He also bragged that he had won Hogsmeade's Most Maimed Award for ten years running.

During the 1992-1993 school year, his final year at Hogwarts, Fred and George Weasley stole a salamander from his class and fed it fireworks.

Retirement"As to our second new appointment: well, I am sorry to tell you that Professor Kettleburn, our Care of Magical Creatures teacher, retired at the end of last year in order to enjoy more time with his remaining limbs. However, I am delighted to say that his place will be filled by none other than Rubeus Hagrid, who has agreed to take on this teaching job in addition to his gamekeeping duties."
—Announcement of Kettleburn's retirement.
Kettleburn remained in his position as Professor of Care of Magical Creatures until 1993, when he retired to spend more time with his remaining limbs. According to Rubeus Hagrid, who succeeded him, Professor Dumbledore came straight to his hut after Kettleburn said that he had had enough. As a retirement present, Albus Dumbledore presented Kettleburn with a set of enchanted wooden prosthetics, which needed constant replacement due to his habit of visiting dragon sanctuaries.

During his retirement, Professor Kettleburn moved to Hogsmeade. During the Battle of Hogwarts, his physical infirmities prevented him from fighting directly but, determined to play his part, he clambered into his attic and threw his entire stock of Flobberworms out of the skylight at passing Death Eaters. While this had little to no effect on the outcome of the battle, it was generally felt to show the right spirit.

He never married and had no children, and died sometime prior to 22 November, 2014.

Personality and traits
Rita Skeeter: "You regularly bring children face to face with creatures that could kill them in the blink of an eye."
Silvanus Kettleburn: "And I teach them to understand and respect those creatures so no one gets hurt." 
— Profssor Kettleburn refuting sensationalist reporter Rita Skeeter's claim that he did not take his job seriously.
Silvanus Kettleburn had an extreme, professorial enthusiasm for the subject of Magizoology and great fondness for magical creatures of all kinds, especially the dangerous ones. Like Newton Scamander, he advocated for the protection and preservation of magical creatures, informing his class that he would risk life and limb, and indeed had done so, to protect the magical creatures in his care. He was also quite dutiful in regards to his profession, brushing off Rita Skeeter's accusation that he was regularly endangering his students by saying he was more careful with his students than he was with himself.
Despite this, Kettleburn was considered reckless by many people, including his former employer Armando Dippet, (and not without good reason). Indeed: True though it might be that the numerous injuries he had suffered or the limbs he had lost throughout his life, by, in his eagerness, recklessly neglecting to take the proper safety precautions when dealing with beasts, Silvanus Kettleburn did not mind or regret any of them, as he regarded his mangled body as a testament to his dedication to his work.

One notable example of Kettleburn's recklessness was the The Fountain of Fair Fortune incident in the Great Hall. This incident resulted in a packed Hospital Wing, a Great Hall smelling of burned wood, and Herbert Beery's head growing out of proportion. Kettleburn had mellowed considerably by the time Dumbledore took over,[5] although he was regarded as a "lovable if eccentric man".

Magical abilities and skills
Magical skills: Minerva McGonagall stated, "[we] teachers are rather good at magic", suggesting that the faculty at Hogwarts as a general rule consisted of learned and accomplished witches and wizards. As such, it is quite possible that Professor Kettleburn was a very capable wizard.
Care of Magical Creatures: As the Professor of Care of Magical Creatures, Kettleburn was highly knowledgeable in the subject of Magizoology. He was particularly fond of dealing with dangerous ones like his successor.

Possessions

House: Kettleburn owned a small house in the village of Hogsmeade from where he would walk up to Hogwarts for work every day, and to which he retired after resigning as teacher at Hogwarts.

Wand: Like most wizards, Professor Kettleburn owned a wand.

Nifflers: At some point, Kettleburn owned twelve nifflers that destroyed his house, boat, and favourite replacement leg; he could hardly wait to get twelve more.

Etymology
"Silvanus" is a Roman name derived from Latin silva, meaning "wood, forest". Silvanus was the Roman god of forests.

Behind the scenes
In Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, Jacob's sibling describes his scent as the streets of Edinburgh after a storm.
