PostSubject: Clara Goldstein's Test   Wed Jul 05, 2017 8:25 pm

As Clara stepped in to the classroom, Jake stood from his desk, moving to the middle of the room and looking at the witch before him, he gave a small smile. "I'm glad to hear it, Miss Goldstein!" Jake told her, before motioning to the empty classroom. "Today, you will be working with me." He told her, trying to explain why they were all coming in to the classroom on their own.

"Your first challenge, Clara, is to disarm me and place me in a Full Body Bind."

The words were quite clear, but Jake gave the witch a few moments to comprehend the situation before they began. With that done, Jake moved back to his desk and took up his wand, turning to the witch and motioning for her to make the first move. It was a test not of simply disarming, but of Clara's capability to think on the spot. This was not simply a test of the disarming spell, or even the full body bind, but a test of persistence, and the ability to work in a small duel.


Important Information:
1. Whilst Jake is both a professor and Auror, he is obviously not going to make this impossible for his students to pass this stage. Jake will, however, push a student to work to their potential.

As I do not know ALL characters inside out, I am allowing you to GM Jake pushing the character to achieving as much as possible.

2. I will not accept a post that writes a successful take down in two moves. Unless you can come to me with a very good reason how your character can take down a talented Auror, then I will deem this unrealistic, and will not post part two of your test.

3. You are expected to write the duel yourself -- I will not be posting as Jake other than to give the next steps in this lesson.

4. Have fun with this, explore your character, and use this as an opportunity to explore their capabilities.

5. If you need a specific reaction/action/comment from Jake to push your character further, please ask me before you GM so that I can confirm as to whether this is something he would do.

6. If you have any questions, please ask!

Clara thought fast as Professor Newbury grabbed his wand. Obviously, he was going to go easy on her--she was a student after all, if he really wanted to, he could probably take her down within seconds. Still, that didn't mean he was just going to let her win. After a moment's consideration, she decided her first move would have to be used to test what level of difficulty he would throw at her.

"Expelliarmus!" she shouted, as soon as he turned to face her. He knocked it aside with a flick of his wand. His lips twitched upward, but he didn't retaliate. He was waiting for her to try again, playing on the defensive for the time being. Okay. She glanced around the classroom, looking for anything she could use to her advantage. No chairs, no desks aside from the professor's, which was several feet behind him...she kept that in mind, a plan beginning to form in her head.

"Stupefy!" She aimed it at his legs. He jumped backwards and grinned, but still did nothing. "Depulso!" She aimed higher, and he casually swatted it aside again. Then he took a step forward.

"Flipendo," he said, and she leaped out of the way. She modified her plan, thinking quickly.

"Expelliarmus," he shot at her again, and she jumped back to her previous position, while at the same time pointing her wand at the floor slightly in front of her and saying "Spongify!"

He gave her an odd look as a small patch of the floor softened and turned rubbery. Then she pointed her wand at the desk behind him. "Accio!"

The desk slid forward across the classroom floor, and would have steamrolled him if he hadn't dived out of the way. It shot toward Clara, and she jumped on the bouncy floor in front of her, springing high into the air and landing with a slight wobble on top of the desk that now stood where she had been standing a moment ago. "Expelliarmus!"

Professor Newbury, preoccupied with rolling to his feet, was caught off guard, and his wand was ripped from his hand. It flew across the room and landed near the door.

"Petrificus totalus!" Clara tried, but he was too quick, and dodged it easily. She stood atop the desk, panting slightly as she tried to think, building up her energy for one last burst.

"Points for ingenuity, I suppose," the professor said with a slight chuckle. He balanced lightly on the balls of his feet, watching her movements carefully, prepared to dodge again. Clara caught her breath and planned her next actions carefully. She still needed to conserve her energy for the next two stages.

"Flipendo," she said, then immediately switched her aim to floor at the professor's feet and said, "Glisseo."

Technically, it was a spell for turning stairs into slides. But Clara figured that, logically, in the absence of stairs, it should make other surfaces slippery too.

As the professor sidestepped, his foot slipped slightly--enough to throw him a little off balance. "Petrificus totalus!" Clara struck as quickly as she could, taking advantage of the moment, however brief. Professor Newbury's arms snapped to his sides, and his legs locked together.

Clara clambered off the desk, feeling a little drained.

(OOC: I didn't think there were any problems, but if there are, please tell me.)

Clara had done very well -- for a third year, there were only so many spells that the child would viably know at that age, and she'd made use of the ones she knew to a very good standard. A couple of spells were even above her age in the lesson structure, but he wasn't going to pull her up on the knowledge.

Obviously, the Ravenclaw studied hard in her free time.

"Well done, Clara." Jake told her once she'd reversed the charm, getting up from the floor whilst rubbing his shoulders slightly from the impact. "A very good combination of the spells you know. A successful attempt, too." Jake added, the smile on his lips showing he was proud of her achievements in the duel.

"Here, have some chocolate before we move on," Jake insisted, moving to his desk to pull out a bar for her to eat whilst he put his desk back to it's original place. Turning back to the witch, Jake waited for a few moments before speaking again.

"Your next challenge is going to be a little harder than the first. I'm sure you already worked that much out. So please, make sure you're ready before we continue, okay?" He insisted, before readying the next task for the young witch.

Flicking his wand around the room, a number of objects appeared behind Jake, some small, some large. Some heavy, some light. They wouldn't make much sense on their own, but Jake was going to explain before he set the Ravenclaw off on this task.

"You will know by now the Seize and Pull Charm. Many students will think that defending themselves will mean direct combat, however, this is not always the case.
What we are going to achieve with this one, is to work through the objects, smallest to largest - getting quicker. You will need to use the Seize and Pull Charm to pull the objects from the air. Sounds easy, I know, but, we're going to do this whilst you also contend with water jets.

"The aim is to not get hit by the water jets, but also not get hit by the objects flying in your direction too." Jake explained -- of course, he would not allow his students to actually get hurt, on impact, the objects would turn to feathers, but they looked like normal objects to the untrained eye.

"Ready?" Jake asked with a smile.

Important Information:
1. Whilst Jake is both a professor and Auror, he is obviously not going to make this impossible for his students to pass this stage. Jake will, however, push a student to work to their potential.

As I do not know ALL characters inside out, I am allowing you to GM Jake pushing the character to achieving as much as possible.

2. The items being launched are open to your discretion, but I'm thinking a textbook, moving up to a cauldron, then maybe a table -- however, how big the object is depends on how well your character manages, once you decide on them failing, Jake will not launch another object in their direction.

3. You are expected to write this part yourself -- I will not be posting as Jake other than to give the next steps in this lesson.

4. Have fun with this, explore your character, and use this as an opportunity to explore their capabilities.

5. If you need a specific reaction/action/comment from Jake to push your character further, please ask me before you GM so that I can confirm as to whether this is something he would do.

6. If you have any questions, please ask!

Clara shook her head, taking her time to finish her chocolate so she could plan her next course of action. She knew she couldn't hope to dodge everything--she was not the most agile of people, and she never relied on athleticism if she had any other choice. She gazed around the room, assessing the objects, and trying to determine which directions the water would come from. Can I use any spells other than the Seize and Pull charm? If I could, I would just freeze the water, but he probably doesn't want me to do that--that would make it too easy.

The smallest object was a pinecone, about the size of her fist, and the largest was a table, the size of a small oven. I do not want to get hit by that. Either he's very confident in my abilities, or he's charmed it so it won't hurt if it hits me.

It was a random assortment of things as well--a chalkboard eraser, a chair, a quaffle, a mixing bowl--Clara sized then all up, determining which order they would be thrown at her. Then she nodded at Professor Newbury to signal she was ready.

A jet of water shot at her from the left, and she jumped backward to avoid it, her head twisting to look for its origin. She saw nothing. The first object flew high through the air, and she pointed her wand at it. "Carpe retractum!"

A whip-like beam of light shot from her wand and snagged the object, and she jerked her wand to the side to fling it past her. A second later, another jet of water sprayed from above her head, on her right side. Again, she stumbled out of the way, just barely missing it, and feeling clumsy and off balance. The next object hurtled toward her.

She repeated her previous actions, keeping track of where the next object would come from, and being ready to leap aside at a moment's notice. The next jet came from the left again, and shot at her legs. She jumped forward this time, and looked toward the next object--an old boot. It flew at her head, and she caught it with another carpe retractum, but as she did, another jet of water approached from her right. Reflexively, she swung the boot around, and knocked the water aside. Some of it bounced off and splashed her, but a look from Professor Newbury told her to keep going.

The quaffle was next, and it flew upward in an arc. As she caught it with her wand, she jumped backward, anticipating the next jet of water, which crashed against the wall on the other side of the room. She only barely had time to drop the quaffle before the next object came at her, followed by another burst of water. Right, they're getting faster. By the end, I might not have time to catch one before the next one is thrown.

She jumped backwards again, beginning to notice a pattern in the jets of water. The next one should come from the bottom left.

The next object was a chair. It wasn't too large, but it looked solid, and relatively heavy. She'd barely gotten the words "carpe retractum" out of her mouth when a larger, but lighter-looking object was thrown. She caught the chair, sidestepped the stream of water that came from the bottom left, and swung the chair around to knock the other object aside.

Bottom right, her mind warned her, and she jumped back just in time. She was nearing the end, and getting tired. Her dodging was getting slower, and even though she knew where to expect the water from, she was having trouble keeping up with so many things at once. She yanked the chair toward her, and ducked behind it, pointing her wand at the next object--a large cauldron. She snatched it from the air and pulled it to her other side, creating a barricade from the water.

As water splashed around her, she looked up and saw the final object, the table, already closing in. She didn't have time to raise her wand, she just dove out of the way and landed in a graceless heap on the wet floor.

Clara sat there panting for a moment, thankful it was over.
