Summer had finally come, and Gio found himself back at home, on the Isle of Skye. He was ready to get some serious R&R. It had been an exciting year, after all, with SPELLCRAFT. Even more exciting, a Hogwarts Champion had won the tournament. Gio had to admit that he was pulling for Asha Patel, considering she was a Ravenclaw, but Lucas Vanetti had certainly put on a good show, and was well-deserving of the win. In addition to Hogwarts stealing SPELLCRAFT, they had also won the inter-school competition, accumulating the most points. Gio had never been prouder of his alma mater.<p>

He wasn't going to be here long, though. Nope - he, like many other wizards in the wizarding world, had secured tickets - two, one for him, and one for his son, Mason D'orolione to attend the Quidditch World Cup. It had only been about a week after school had ended that the portkeys leading to Jamaica - the beautiful island host for the event - and before long, Gio was moving on to the next adventure. Hey - he was going to get that R&R somehow, and he couldn't think of a better way than to do so on the sunny, warm beaches of a Caribbean island.<p>

With the family tent in tow - and all of his belongings inside - Gio made his way to the nearest portkey that had been placed by the Ministry of Magic. Normally, he'd want Mason to travel with him...and it wasn't that he <i>didn't</i> want his son to be by his side, but Mason was growing up. He was an adult now, after all. Effective May 2022...his son had turned 17 years old and was officially of legal age in the wizarding world. It was kind of crazy, to think that he had an adult son, getting ready to finish his last year of school and go out into the world. Gio only hoped he'd done right by Mason, and that he was ready to seize the world and succeed.<p>

Although hesitant, Gio obliged to Mason's requests to meet up with his dad later in Jamaica. Gio presumed it had something to do with Aliyana Bacardi - which was why the last few things that he said to Mason was "please don't wreck the house" and "don't make me a grandfather before I'm 40." It was mostly teasing, of course - sure, Gio didn't want either of those things to come true, but although Mason had definitely pushed it with the Professor over the years, he ultimately trusted his son. After leaving him with some cash in case he needed it, a father-son side-hug, and letting him know that he loved him, Gio left the Isle of Skye and headed to Jamaica, eager to meet back up with his son soon.<p>

Naturally, Gio's first instinct was to run off and explore every nook and cranny of this new place - but first things first, he set up the tent in the assigned lot that he had purchased, that way it would be ready for Mason when he arrived. Considering portkey travel was pretty rapid, he wasn't jetlagged - he also had a whole lot of day left - so he headed off towards the capital and resort area of Kingston, curious to see what the town had to offer.<p>

It wasn't long before an open-air, barefoot beach bar caught his eye. Slipping off his shoes, he dug his toes into the sand for the first time, and walked up to the bar, stealing a seat with a direct view of the ocean waves crashing before him. Grabbing a menu, he looked over it, before rolling his shoulders in a shrug. <b>"Bring me your most authentic dish and beer, please,"</b> he requested of the bartender. The man behind the bar grinned and nodded, seeming eager to accommodate this tourists' bold request.<p>

Before long, the bartender returned with some silverware and a bottle of beer called "Dragon Stout," to which Gio chuckled aloud at the...utterly <i>magical</i> name. Curiously, the bartender peered at him, but Gio shook him off casually. <b>"It just reminded me of something, is all,"</b> he lied with a grin. The bartender seemed to accept the answer and moved on. Glancing across at the ocean waves, Gio enjoyed digging his toes into the sand from the barstool, sipping his Jamaican beer, and getting lost in the beachy breeze tickling his skin while waiting for his food.

Divination was a funny thing. In the wizarding world, it was often looked down upon, mocked, or generally not held in very high regards. Even in the Muggle world, things like tarot cards, spirit boards, crystal balls, and anything else having to do with forecasting the future were ridiculed and considered shams. For someone who had invested so much time, energy, and effort into it - someone who lived his life - which was quite good, in his opinion - by the readings, it was disheartening to see and hear how few people believed in, or at the very least <i>respected</i> the art of divining.<p>

So, when a student that had <i>not</i> formally taken any of his Divination classes before expressed interest in learning more about the subject, he was more than happy to oblige.<p>

Gio's class sizes historically had certainly experienced highs and lows. After a several-year lull of having single-digit sized classes, he was pleased to find that his third-year class enrollment was a bit up this year from last's, but still, the word of Divination wasn't being taught to nearly enough open minds and curious brains, in his opinion. He was hardly going to say no when a certain one Risha Douglas specifically sought him out for private lessons.<p>

The Professor couldn't deny that he was <i>very</i> interested in working with a known-Seer, so perhaps it was better that they would be interacting one-on-one versus in a classroom setting anyway. Gio didn't want to make her feel uncomfortable or to make a spectacle out of her and wasn't entirely sure that he could promise that he wouldn't. He <i>understood</i> that playing favorites was not very kosher for a Professor, but as proven in the past, it was difficult to not dote on the <i>one</i> interested or truly gifted person in a room full of generally apathetic students just trying to fill their schedules. He'd fawned over Jules Ellison's seemingly natural talent and interest, and couldn't promise that he wouldn't have done the same with Risha.<p>

After dinner had commenced in the Great Hall, Gio retired back to his classroom, flicking his wand to reignite all of the lights in the tower. Leaving the door propped open as he anticipated the Hufflepuff girl's arrival, he busied himself behind his desk until she did, grading papers from his earlier class that day. Upon hearing someone entering the room, Gio looked up and smiled, standing up from his seat and coming around to the front of the desk. He leaned against it and folded his arms against his chest, looking at Risha with both excitement and wonder. He gestured for her to sit anywhere she'd like.<p>

<b>"I'm glad you could make it, Miss Douglas. I must say, it's very endearing for a student who hasn't even taken my class to want lessons in the subject matter,"</b> he said warmly, and with a smile. Tilting his head a bit curiously, he pried lightly. <b>"Before we begin, I hope you don't mind, but I'd like to pick your brain a bit. What is it about Divination that you'd like to learn now that you didn't three years ago when selecting your electives?"</b> His tone was kind - he certainly didn't want to discourage her or have her change her mind, but he wanted to get a good baseline of what he was dealing with here - and how he could help her, exactly.

Gio couldn't believe that he was officially into his tenth year as a Professor at Hogwarts. Time had flown by, and provided him with a plethora of fond memories to look back upon. He had so many successful students grown up, doing great things with their lives, and making something of themselves. Of course, he had a handful of not-so-prosperous former students, as well, but, hey, that was sort of the name of the game when you directed an elective class that some kids took just for the hell of it, he figured.<p>

Over the last ten years, while he had his share of ups and downs, Gio couldn't remember a year as fun and action-packed as this one. He was grateful for the International Confederation of Wizards and their creation of the Inter Scholastic Competition. It was a great opportunity to meet students and Professors of other schools, to join together and strengthen the bonds between wizarding communities of other countries. Especially after the attacks on France the previous summer, Gio felt that the show of unity couldn't have come at a better time.<p>

As far as the competitions themselves went, Gio was having a wonderful time watching - and cheering on - the champions. He was, of course, partial to Hogwarts. Asha Patel and Lucas Vanetti were putting up an amazing fight, representing their school well. He was particularly proud of the Ravenclaw girl - after all, not only was she one of his Dueling Club faithfuls, but he had a mean streak of Ravenclaw pride - and her being a Ravenclaw made her status as champion all the better. She was, for all intents and purposes, an international symbol for the greatest Hogwarts house ever. Gio practically glowed any time she was brought up in conversation.<p>

The SPELLCRAFT was definitely the star of the show this year, but the other competitions had been enjoyable to see. Gio's own son, Mason D'orolione had put on one hell of a show during the music portion of the talent show, leaving the man with an immense sense of pride that <i>that</i> amazing boy was his child. Though, Mason wasn't really a child anymore, Gio supposed. He was going to be going into his seventh year before the year was through, after all.<p>

Sigh. Yep, time was flying.<p>

That was what happened when you were having fun, right? It could've been worse...they could have been miserable and it be just another regular year. Instead, they had been granted this awesome chance to meet new people, learn new things - and for the visitors, to experience a land that perhaps some of them had never been to before. Being rather well-traveled himself, Gio knew that seeing things firsthand was the best way to gain an understanding for foreign both the literal and figurative sense.<p>

In an effort to further unify the masses, Gio conversed with the staff supervisors of the other schools' Dueling Clubs, hoping to have one large, joint meeting. Who said the SPELLCRAFT champions were the only ones allowed to congregate and fire off spells at one another and have fun? Thankfully, the Combat Club supervisor at Beauxbatons, as well as the staff in charge at Durmstrang and Ilvermorny's respective clubs all thought it was a great idea, and a plan was set in motion.<p>

The Dueling Chamber at Hogwarts had seemed to expand by four times its' regular size, in order to accommodate both the regulars of each school, but also any interested newcomers who might like to sign up for their schools' Dueling Club (or its' equivalent). Standing with his fellow staff supervisors atop the dueling run in the center of the chamber, Gio greeted students as they filed in at the designated date and time of the meeting. Once enough had arrived, he held his wand to his throat and both amplified his voice. The kids were chatty with excitement, after all - who could blame them?<p>

<b>"Welcome, all, to the first inter-school Dueling Club meeting! Some of you may call it something else at your schools, but ultimately, we are all here for the same reason. To responsibly and effectively learn the skills of magical combat. Of course, we wish that you never need to use the things you learn here in the real world - but if you do - then we hope that you do so amenably. That's why we're here - to help guide you. Now...we don't want to bore you too much with talking, so we'll get right to it. First things first, let's pair up. Find a dueling partner - with one catch - they must be someone from a different school."</b> Gio smiled and waved his hand as he finished, urging the children to move along and find their partners.
