    After years of nearly unlimited freedom where his work was concerned, Young-Jae was having some trouble adjusting to the far more rigid structure of Hogwarts. There seemed to be an endless amount of rules which, while he understood the necessity of them, gave him more headaches than he could count. On top of the rules, there was all the extra work teachers had to do - lesson plans, grading, making sure no students got themselves killed while attempting difficult spellwork - that Young-Jae hadn't thought about when he'd applied for the position. He was more than capable of all that, he just found shouldering all the responsibility to be a pain. The most difficult part of the change, however, was how little time he had to himself. One weekend off a month wasn't nearly enough in his opinion, but he forced himself to manage. 

    As with the months before,Young-Jae waited until the last weekend in November to take his time off. His first stop was home. There, he complained to anyone who would listen about how hard he had it because he could no longer do research in the field. When they got tired of him, he made himself scarce and holed up in his room (half of which had become a storage space in his absence) for the evening. He mapped out the rest of his weekend before turning in early so he could enjoy sleeping in his "real" bed for as long as possible. 

    When he awoke on Saturday morning, he spent half an hour seriously contemplating staying in bed the entire weekend. However, there were too many things that needed doing for him to justify such laziness. Grumbling to himself, he rolled out of bed and washed up. After that, he felt awake enough to complete the transformation that had become an essential part of his weekends. "I think I'll be Diana today," he said aloud as he faced his mirror. In no time at all, his features were morphing to be softer, more feminine. After a few short minutes, Young-Jae admired his new visage. He couldn't say why he felt the need to uphold the habit of taking on a woman's form while out and about when it wasn't strictly necessary, and he didn't care to figure it out. Aside from his old employer, no one knew about this, so he was free to do as he wished without judgement. 

    Clad in a dress appropriate for a woman of 'Diana's' age and means, Young-Jae flooed to Hogsmeade. His first stop was Gladrags; both of his alternate personas were in need of additions to their wardrobes and it was the most affordable place he knew. For a while, he browsed aimlessly, unsure of what exactly he wanted. Eventually, his attention was grabbed by a flashy set of robes. "Oooh," he cooed as he admired the cloth. Addressing another shopper that was nearby: "Miss/Mister*, do you think this would suit me?"

    because he is a metamorphmagus, young-jae tends to change his form when outside of school. your character may know him as jung-ah kim or diana moon.
