PostSubject: Defence Against the Dark Arts - Lesson Three (All Years)   Tue Nov 08, 2016 6:23 pm

With the attack on the school, the Ministry had gone mad with busying all of their staff. Jake was not one of those spared because of his job at Hogwarts, nor the fact he had two very small children. Merlin he hated the pressure that Veronika was under with looking after both their children in these times, but he also knew he had to work to keep all three of them, and Victoria safe.

Jake was, in all fairness, looking rather tired of late because of the pressure. But even if he was exhausted, he was not going to allow this to scupper his students chances of getting good grades.

Flicking his wand, Jake put all of the desks and chairs in place - a second spell cleaned off the dust that had built up from the copious amounts of practical lessons he had taught - ready for the lesson today. Merging all the students together had been the best option here. He needed to make sure that the world knew of the new dangers - well, new to the children, werewolves had been around for years before any of them were born.

Writing up the single word of today's lesson on the board, Jake took up his seat behind his desk, waiting for the students to arrive. Hopefully they would forgive him a theory lesson, this once.

Defence Against the Dark Arts was interest. Defensive mechanisms to save yourself were obviously an idea the Slytherin could get behind. Though, he doubted many people understood the idea behind the theory of the lesson like Arthur did. That was, in his opinion, one of Professor Newbury's downfalls, that he didn't concentrate hard enough on the theoretical element of his class.

Moving up through the masses of people in the halls, Arthur slipped through the door of Professor Newbury's class to find desks and chairs laid out. Probably the only one to find this a good thing, Arthur moved to the second row, taking up a seat and pulling out his notepad with more enthusiasm than anyone should ever, really, have.

Sometimes he wondered how he hadn't been sorted in to Ravenclaw.

Sometimes.

"Morning professor." Arthur greeted the man at the front of the classroom with a small smile, before returning to his notepad and setting up a page.

The castle was either pretty quite, or filled with noise after the attack had taken place. The Ministry was obvious not capable of doing its job and protecting them and that caused a time of chaos for them. And for all these people that had either lost someone, or the person was actually still missing.

Elyah remained silent through all of these, since she was one of the lucky few that were saved as soon as the attack happened, something that made Elyah intrigued enough to search how much of a power her father had over people. But there was also Max. She had not seen him after what had happened, and she was scared. So scared that something bad had happened to him.

Her father had told her over and over again that he was probably fine, and that he was positive she would meet him at school. And all Elyah could do was hope he was right. Else, the little girl was probably going to be broken once and for all.

Stopping just outside the door of DADA, Elyah took a moment to gather herself, silently praying to find Max waiting for her inside, but she already knew he wasn't there. Freddo was not following her, so Max was not close. A sob escaped her throat, but the girl quickly managed to pull herself back together and make her way into the class silently. She wouldn't look up at Professor Newbury. She wouldn't look at anyone.

Defence Against the Dark Arts seemed like a good class to learn right now after that attack. Cassie wasn't really that advanced in this class spells or stuff at all. She knew she needs to learn them now for sure. So she can protect herself or people near her.

She hasn't really discussed with anyone what she experienced that day since she barely has here any close friends. Anyways she walked towards DADA classroom and a few minutes later she was there. She walked in the classroom and smiled.

"Hello," she said even quietly and was a bit of surprised to see there desks and chairs. Mostly barely in this class these were used. She didn't say anything and just did take a seat in the middle row. She looked up on the board and wasn't sure what to say about this subject much. She, of course, have read about it before but same time all that she might have read can't be true.

Another day, another lesson.

Nirek moved down from the Gryffindor Common Room with little and less enthusiasm for the day's lesson. Well, apart from the possibility of running in to Caramarienne and not needing an excuse to be together. However, the Gryffindor did not get his hopes up, more than likely Cara would be with either Elenore or her Slytherin friends, and he would keep his distance, as agreed.

But, a boy could hope.

Slipping in to the classroom, Nirek took in the tables with mild surprise, heading for the back row and sitting down. At least he could switch off from this lesson and not put himself in danger. Which, was exactly what he was planning to do. "Professor." Nirek acknowledged as he sat down, making sure to at least stay in the good books of the teachers, if nothing else, this year.

The word werewolves was on the board, and Nirek couldn't help but be intrigued.

Defence Against the Dark Arts had never really been as valuable as it was now. Christopher could understand the trouble that was spreading through their world, and he was... a little bit scared, truth be told. He'd thought the group to be blood supremacists, but that had been thrown out of the window when a Westbrook had been taken by the group. The Westbrooks were powerful, Christopher was highly aware of that, and the Richardsons were equally as powerful.

Which meant he was not safe.

His parents had written a frustratingly long letter about this, insisting that he stay safe, not do anything stupid in the time left at Hogwarts. That instead of getting on the train to go home, they would meet him at Hogsmeade to apparate him straight home. The idea was not one he liked, he'd hoped for more time with Keona, but that was not something his parents would back down on.

Feeling a little heavy with such thoughts, Christopher slipped through the door of DADA, and moved towards an empty seat without giving it much thought. "Morning, Jake." Christopher greeted their professor, though his tone wasn't overly excitable, he'd been polite.

Defence Against the Dark Arts had come around again, and Elenore was ready for the lesson. Slipping through the door to find chairs and desks, however, threw the young French witch in that moment. It was so unlike Professor Newbury to go with a theory lesson. Perhaps even Aurors could be shaken by the tragic event of the school attack?

Whatever the case might be, Elenore took it in her stride, taking up a seat in the second row and ignoring the majority of the others in the class, bar the professor. Though, however many times Professor Newbury asked them to call him Jake, Elenore could simply not fathom such unorthodox practices.

"Good morning, professor." Elenore greeted the professor, pulling our a notepad and quill from her bag in order to take notes. After all, it didn't hurt to look a little bit eager for the lesson, did it?

Heading up to Defence Against the Dark Arts from the dungeon, Jacques couldn't help but enjoy the anxious glances of those around him. A lot of people were terrified after the attack - his own parents were included in that much. Thus far, Jacques had ignored three letters from his mother insisting that he go careful, and stay out of trouble. She was trying to baby him, and Jacques didn't appreciate it.

Especially when he had more than enough information to keep himself safe.

Pushing open the door, Jacques noted his sister at the front, and therefore made a beeline for the seat at the back of the room. He had no interest in talking to Elenore during class. Though after a moment, Jacques caught up with the fact there were chairs and frowned slightly at the notion, looking towards the board for answers. Werewolves... Now, that was an interesting subject. Halfbreeds that should not be allowed.

Sophie had been hoping that maybe for her last couple of lessons for the year she would at least find someway to manage to make it too all her classes on time. Causing her to walk out of her common room as she let out a smirk, since she knew that when she did attend class she would perhaps by some reason manage to be better than most. Than soon she thought since at that moment she realized that she was acting like her little sister Madison who was the total opposite of her. Then with a thought she looked as she entered the class looking around and began thinking for a minute.

What would they be learning for their final lesson, looking around at the other students.

Wondering if any of them truly cared about their education. Then leaving Sophie to soon look as she soon peered and wondered as she eyed a few more students. And wondered if any of her siblings were going to even bother attending class. Leaving Sophie to look and she soon brought her attention to Professor Newbury waiting intently to be instructed.

Leaving her to wonder.

Out of all the classes Tristan enjoyed DADA the most as he made his way. Wondering that maybe if he liked it so much he would have attended and it caused him to soon let out a low sigh. Then before he knew he was on his way looking around the castle. Hoping that he would not be late since he did not want to get into any trouble. And soon looking around wondering what he would do then soon he took a thought for a second as he soon made his way.

Tristan had then managed to finally make it to the classroom with some sort of guilt that he was late. Since he knew that he was a slacker and soon he took a seat. Peering around the class and soon thoughts raced through his mind and he wondered what he would do. Then he soon brought his attention to the professor as he looked around.

The boy wanted to learn and now he was ready.

Simon made his way down to DADA hoping that it would end up being a good final lesson, since he wanted to not seem such like a slacker which his reputation was easily becoming. Leading Simon to soon make his way down as he hoped it would all go over well and he had no problem with the class, but hoped it would go over well. Simon then soon was on the floor which the class had been one leaving him to make his way a bit further and he soon let out a sigh.

Before he knew it Simon had been in the classroom, his sister had seemingly already been in attendance and he wanted to make sure he was not seen by her. When it came it to his older siblings Simon was not a particular fan, and tried his best to remain invisible. Since he found more of a love for being on his own than around his siblings. Due to constantly being on his own.

Simon then made sure he took a seat as he waited to be instructed.

Emily began walking to Defence Against the Dark Arts, with some sort of smile, since it seemed in today's society being safe was honestly the up most urgency. Since she recalled hearing about some attacks, and she knew for damn sure she wanted to be safe. And she knew many often never cared but when it came to Emily she was one to make sure she was safe. And the Hufflepuff did that by entering the classroom and looking around as she looked at Professor Newbury with some thought. As she tried to find a seat, occasionally saying " So sorry. " as she found a seat and took it with a smile.

Leading the Hufflepuff to soon look and let out a thought, as she wondered what in the world to do. Emily wanted to know what they were learning and if anyone actually cared. Since the mind of teenagers was clearly much more different then the mind of adults since it seemed teens were always so reckless. And she knew in her mind she sounded like a preacher. Since in most cases she often found herself more mature than that of others students in her year.

Then soon she thought, " Will you stop sounding so preacher like? ", her mind was different. As she soon looked and waited to learn what the lesson would end up being about.

Ryder had made his way to Defence Against the Dark Arts, remembering that his final lesson in his first year lead to him getting himself in trouble which two years later still did not change. Since Ryder was well aware of the fact that he was a huge troublemaker leading him to look with a mischievous grin. As he was getting closer to the class and he soon wondered what they would learn about which was something he rarely done since school was not of his forte nor did he inspire it to be.

Since he had his own thoughts on most things that happened, as he took a seat when he entered. Looking at the board smiling since the idea of werewolves seemed pretty cool. But he looked at the professor as he soon looked since he seemed different. Then again I guess being a professor seemed to a stressful occupation even if he had no teaching aspects.

Nor did he ever desire too since he was his own person, and he knew when it came to something he liked. It was honestly only Quidditch since with that he could actually cause some sort of extreme mischief. Not caring on what could truly happen and he soon looked and he sat down and waited to be instructed.

As the class filled up, Jake pressed a smile on to his lips for the students' sake. They had made the effort to be here, and now he was going to repay them for that much. Waiting until the last of the students had settled down, Jake got up from his seat, and clapped his hands together twice to get everyone's attention on him.

"Good morning, everyone. Thank you for coming this morning. Today, we're going to be looking in to Werewolves." Jake explained, giving a pause for a moment before continuing on. "Now, as you will all be aware, the Wizarding world is not the safest of places at the moment. The Ministry has issued warnings to everyone about not being alone when out in public whenever possible, and to toughen up security too.

"Many of you might also have heard that Werewolves are being openly named for being dangerous." Jake put emphasis on the final word, hoping to make an impact. "However, I'm going to tell you right now, that this is a highly subjective thought. Not all werewolves are bad. But, that does not mean you shouldn't be aware of the dangers they can pose.

"Now, for those who may not be fully aware, please can someone give me a detailed description of what a werewolf is?" Jake asked, looking around the classroom for someone who was brave enough to give this question a go.

Violet found herself (again) late. And again, she didn't care much. She sauntered into the classroom, finding the seat closest to the door and dropping her bag to the floor and leaning back in her chair. She had come in in the middle of Professor Newbury talking about the subject of the day- werewolves. She had a textbook, so she didn't see the reason of taking out stationary to write notes. She could read over it later on, and perhaps just spend the class listening- or zoning out- whatever was more interesting.

She was rather disappointed that it was a theory class, but she figured it was due to pure exhaustion. The teacher looked absolutely wrecked- no doubt a due to a heavy workload that stemmed from recent events. That exhaustion was likely to increase if the perpetrators had any wits about them. Strike while the iron is hot- while people are still scared. Build momentum. At least, that would be Violet's way to do things.

Professor Newbury posed the question asking what a werewolf was. She decided against answering however- she'd let others do the talking.

Late again- Lucy was disappointed in herself. But she couldn't dwell on it. She just needed to get on with it and focus. She sprinted down the hall, stopping just outside the classroom to catch her breath before she walked in, slowly and quietly and finding a free seat, just catching the last of what Professor Newbury was saying.

So the lesson would be about werewolves. That was good- a theory class was easier than practical classes. She tended to be a more theoretical person- not one for spell casting and blocking. She was decent at defensive spells, but it certainly wasn't her forte and not her favourite activity. No one seemed to be answering the question posed by Professor Newbury, so she decided to answer.

"Someone that transforms into a wolf-like creature during the full moon," she said "Transformations care very painful and they have no control over transforming nor their actions while in that form. That's why they take wolfsbane- it doesn't stop transformation, but helps them keep in control," she added.

It was rare for Carlotta to be this late- she had gotten caught up sitting by the lake during lunch. It was just so peaceful and sunny and a truly gorgeous day that she didn't want to waste inside. Again- she needed a watch. There weren't any clocks in nature, except for the sun- and she wasn't yet an expert on using the sun to tell the time. It was only upon noticing that she was the only one left outside that she realised that class had probably begun and that she was indeed late again that day.

She made her way to class and quickly and quietly slipped in, finding a free seat towards the back, so as not to interrupt the girl explaining werewolves. She tried to keep quiet as she rummaged through her bag for a notebook and quill and ink, hurrying to ready herself so she could scrawl down notes on the topic.

Jake waited patiently for an answer to come, and as Lucy spoke up, his attention focused on the witch. He had to remember at times not to favour some of the students based on their families, but Jake was human, and he wanted his best friend's sister to do well. Nodding at the answer - until the part about Wolfsbane - Jake smiled warmly at the Slytherin witch.

"Mostly correct, Lucy, take five points for Slytherin." Jake replied to her answer. "However, whilst many werewolves take Wolfsbane potions for the reasons Lucy outlined, not all do. There may be many reasons for this, of course. The potion is not easy to brew, and many werewolves dislike their condition to be publicly known. Some may not be able to afford the potion, and others may like the freedom of losing themselves once every month to the condition."

Jake allowed a pause for the information to sink in, before continuing on.

"If you come across a werewolf, I would advise each and every one of you to not try to combat the beast, but to get yourself out of harms way. Werewolves are savage beasts, who will not think twice about hurting anyone. Even those they love." Jake explained, looking down at his notes. "Now, if you turn to page 394, you will see more information on werewolves. What I would like you to do is to make notes on the creature. I appreciate this isn't the most exciting lesson, but the Ministry and the Headmaster would like you to know this." Jake explained, waving them on to do the work.

** End of Class **

House Points:
Nirek Kapoor = 10 points for attendance
Ryder Yates = 10 points for attendance
Sophie Roiben = 10 points for attendance

Cassiopeia Mercer = 10 points for attendance

Arthur Peadarsan = 10 points for attendance
Jacques Clement = 10 points for attendance
Lucy Waters = 10 points for attendance + 5 points for answer = 15 points.

TOTAL:
Gryffindor: 30
