Defence Against the Dark Arts was a tolerable subject - often linking Charms with a more practical use and adding things in to play that were interesting enough. Dimitri's talent definitely lied in the Charms area, though, so he was hoping it would be a building on that subject today, rather than anything else.

Hurrying up to the third floor, the Ravenclaw slipped through the door in to the classroom and cast his eye immediately to the board. Looking approvingly at the subject, Dimitri's eyes then scanned the classroom for people he knew. Primrose was there, but she had Max in tow, so he moved to stand on his own, waiting for the lesson to begin so that they could make a start, on what the Ravenclaw assumed, would be practicing the spell on dummies.

Sliding his wand from his pocket, Dimitri twirled it idly in between his fingers as he waited for the lesson to begin.

Being dragged back to Defence Against the Dark Arts was not something that Max was going to thank Prim for. The last lesson he'd attended had been horrible. Why would he want to go back? But, he'd relented when Prim had started to pull him towards class, following her instead because it was easier than arguing with her.

As they'd stepped in to the classroom, Max had acknowledged the professor by his first name, before taking in what was on the board. Looking around, there didn't seem to be any dummies in this class... Unless Jake had hidden them. Putting his bag down next to Prim's, the Gryffindor voiced his worries on the subject.

"Do you think we'll be trying to do this to each other?" Max asked Prim because his mind was already reeling with the idea of being hit with the spell. How in Merlin's name was that going to feel?

Defence Against the Dark Arts was slightly more interesting than most classes, because it was almost always practical, and normally involved learning spells that could be used in an offensive manner. Though, not always directly, Mathew would admit, he did enjoy the lesson a little more than the others that were on offer at the school.

It didn't, however, mean that the boy was going to hurry himself to be on time, no, he pretty much walked through the door on the dot of the hour, just about avoiding being late.

Taking in the board, a small smirk touched the Hufflepuff's features as he moved to stand on his own. He couldn't help but wonder if they would be working on their own, or in partners. Mathew was hoping for the latter, aiming a spell like this at a younger student would be great fun. Especially seeing as he was more than a little confident in his ability to block their response...

This lesson was, Mathew hoped, going to be quite interesting indeed.

"Good morning, Prim - I see the catch of the day is one Maximillian!" Jake joked softly as the young witch dragged Max in to the classroom. Jake had felt bad - for both of them - after the last lesson, but he was definitely glad to see them both back, even if the male had been dragged.

"Morning Serenity." Jake replied to the Ravenclaw's murmured hello, giving her a small smile, even though she wasn't an overly talkative student, it didn't hurt to be nice.

As Amber and Elleon entered, Jake switched from a verbal hello, to a small wave to each of them, noting to himself to make sure he looked in their direction when he started the class so that they could keep up with the lesson. Jake, unfortunately, didn't know sign language, and even more unfortunately, didn't have the time to learn to aid the two of them, but he was definitely available to help them, or repeat things if they needed him to.

"Morning Corbin, Lux!" Jake added at the arrival of the next two students - noting Lux's look, Jake gave her a small, apologetic smile, but one witch was not going to change his lesson. Unfortunate as that might be for her. "Morning Roxy." Jake added to the Ravenclaw witch who turned up next, smiling warmly at her as she made a beeline for the other Ravenclaw.

Next in was Eleonora - or Nora as she preferred - and as always, she was a little bouncing bundle of a child. "Good morning, Nora." Jake replied, his smile growing as she managed to correct herself. "Well done, you're getting there with it, huh?" Jake added, before nodding vigorously at her words, before bringing a finger up to his lips. "Don't tell everyone just yet." He told her with a small wink.

The last few students were, thankfully, a lot less chatty, which meant Jake didn't have to do more than wish them good morning. Checking his watch after Mathew arrived, Jake clapped his hands together to get everyone's attention.

"Good morning everyone once again. I'm glad so many of you have turned up today - this will hopefully make it a little bit more fun. Now, for those of you who have cast your eye across the board, you will see that we are today studying the Full Body Bind Curse." Jake explained, motioning to the board behind him. "Now, as Nora has already told me, the incantation is Petrificus Totalus - take five points for that, by the way!" Jake told the Hufflepuff with a warm smile.

"But, that's not nearly enough, is it - who can tell me the wand movement? What this spell does? What are it's uses?" Jake prompted, all the time making sure he spoke towards Amber and Elleon to make it easier for them to follow. Only when he'd finished speaking, did Jake look around the room for an answer.

Florrie was late. Late? That was unacceptable. But, there was no use in worrying about it now, there was nothing she could do except hope that she hadn't missed too much. Thankfully, arriving at the classroom, they were only just getting started learning about the body bind curse, or petrificus totalus, Jake had stated, giving five points to the student who'd stated it.

She slipped in silently, making her way over to her friend Serenity, not offering an explanation for her lateness- that was that she had stayed up far too late and had overslept. In all fairness, her lack of sleep had been for a good reason- reading. She'd lost track of time, something unusual for her. But it had just been a very intriguing book.

She dropped her bag to the floor quietly, not wanting to bring anymore attention to her than she already had by being late.

Roxanne loved DADA if only because it gave her a grasp on the Defensive side of Dark Arts and enabled her magical core to be more adapted to these types of spells as well; there was a reason why she was always having trouble with some of the Light charms and spells in class and that was purely because her core was more attuned to Dark Magic.

The fact that they were learning the Full Body-Bind Curse didn't bother the Ravenclaw in the least and instead. she eagerly leant forward to listen; the fact that they were going to be paired off to do the lesson made her eager to get a start on it.

"The spell basically paralyses a person." Roxanne piped up with a small smile upon her lips as she rocked on her heels. "It snaps the person's legs and arms together and causes them to fall backwards."

As the Ravenclaw witch spoke up with an answer, Jake turned his attention to her, and smiled as she explained the effects of the spell. "Very good, Roxy - take five points for Ravenclaw for your answer." Jake told the witch, turning back to the class at large.

"The wand movement for this spell is as follows." Jake added, taking out his wand and drawing a hook like shape with his wand. "Please remember, as always to enunciate the words clearly, and have a clear picture in your mind as to what it is you would like to accomplish in this moment.

"Now, today, you will be working in twos. The younger students I want you to simply try to cast the spell on one another, and then I will come around to aid you in undoing the spell. The older students, or those who are confident with this spell, I would like for you to turn this in to something of a duel, using only this spell, and shield spells." Jake explained, so that this could be more enjoyable and practical for the older years.

"Please pair up with someone of equal abilities to yourself, and, when you've found some space, please begin." Jake explained, flicking his wand to create a cushioning charm on the floor so that nobody could get hurt.

Teamwork? That was a good thing right? Lana looked around the crowded room that had been void of desks. Several first years but none she had actually spoken to and so she shied away. She was usually quite outgoing except she had absolutely no clue what she was doing, in fact going to these classes made her feel like she was a part of this huge joke.

She didn't feel magical, she didn't feel as though she could cast a spell. The girl looked down slightly to her wand. It was just a piece of wood. She should be back home, swimming and chasing colorful fish. Though with her luck, this was am ploy to send her away. Her parents had proven that they loved her, clearly more than her real parents did but what if now she was too adventurous, too strong willed? Was this all a ploy to rid of her?

Lana supposed she could try to talk to someone, after all these were the people she'd know for the next seven years right? Another glance around the room reminded her that everyone else seemed to have already chosen a partner and she didn't want to be the girl stuck working with the professor.

Lux stood at the back of the classroom, an intensely bored expression on her face as a Ravenclaw answered and Jake continued with the lesson. She wished she were somewhere else, perhaps off experimenting with those very interesting torture devices she found in a shady shop in town preferably on one of the annoying younger years. That would be much better than going through a class on something she already knew how to do.

She rolled her eyes as the professor asked them to pair up before telling them they could start. No, that would not do at all. One glance told her that she was the oldest year there- she silently cursed her misfortune at having to repeat a year - and going up against any of them would not be challenging or fun at all. The closest year to her were the fifth year students and she hated them all - except perhaps Corbin. He was tolerable. But perhaps already taken. Lux swore again. Then a smile, one full of mischief, began to grow on her cheeks.

Taking her wand out, she cast the spell at Elleon and the next second, casted it on Amber, watching how the two people who depended so much on their hands would react. It wouldn't be as fun as she would've liked since Jake would undo it, but she deserved some amusement for having to endure the class.

Listening to the Professor, Prim was actually also signing away towards Elleon and Amber, knowing that Elleon would be hard pressed in reading the Professor's lips. She was thankful for her knowledge of the sign language even if she did mess up on some spellings of the words.

The moment Prim heard that they should pair up, she instantly turned towards Max and grinned at her boyfriend. "Well, let's pair up then." At least with Max, she knew she was on the equal terms when it came to abilities not to mention she wasn't going to be too afraid in actually hexing her boyfriend. "Do you want to start or should I?" She wouldn't mind either way.

The spell wasn't too hard to learn and while Prim already knew it, well in theory she knew it, she needed to learn how to cast it. Her attention though turned towards the spells she could see sailing towards the two deaf children, her eyes widened and she whipped her head around to stare at the person it came from; she would be much too late in putting up a shield to stop the spells from hitting the two children.

"...Bailey." She hissed and dug her fingers into her palms as she held herself back from running over to the Slytherin and nailing her in the face. She doubted Jake would enjoy having a bitch-fest in his lesson.
