PostSubject: Transfiguration Lesson 2 (Years 5-7)   Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:22 am

Grayson felt increasing pressure to keep his older students challenged and entertained, while still conforming to the NEWT level curriculum. He felt as if his older students judged him more harshly than his younger ones, and though he told himself he didn't need their approval--he was supposed to be the authority here--a little voice at the back of his mind still refused to listen. He wanted them to like him, or at least his class. Still, he tried to cut himself some slack when some of his lesson plans worked better than others. It was still his first semester as a teacher.

Today, his classroom looked a bit different than it usually did. Most of the desks and chairs had vanished. In fact, only one desk and one chair remained, sitting in the center of the floor. On the board was the word, "Duplication."

As the students began to file in, unable to sit down, he greeted them and gestured for them to stand wherever they wanted. When the bell rang, he began his explanation.

"Today's activity is a bit like a reverse musical chairs. There should be 30 desks and chairs in this classroom, but today we are starting with one. The goal is to restore the classroom to its proper layout, and to give each one if you a place to sit. I'd suggest taking turns so that each one of you gets the chance to try. The only spell you'll need is the doubling charm. Can anyone tell me what it is--and for bonus points, would anyone like to be the first to attempt a demonstration?"

(OoC: I am so sorry for the delay. I meant to have this up earlier, but I'm in the midst of finals at the moment and have been busier than expected with make up work :/)

To be honest Sasha wasn't really sure what to expect from Transfiguration class this time. She had actually liked the last lesson for some reasons. This class seemed to be an interesting one for sure. The girl seemed to be even in a happy mood today. She tried to do her best to be happy again, she can't always keep thinking about past. Things did happen and she has to move on.

The girl walked into the classroom and greeted the professor with a small smile on her face. The Hufflepuff noticed there only one chair and desk and this when she glanced up at the board to see what this was all about. She was sure now that they would need to use doubling spell, so the girl tried to remember it there now.

Once the class did begin the girl somehow remember the spell. So she decided to even speak up there now. "It should be Geminio. Spelt as juh-MIN-ee-oh," she said there now with a small smile on her face. The girl wasn't sure if she should try to demonstrate the spell, she just has never tried it much before. She hasn't really needed it. Also, it would be good opportunity to let others earn the points too. Not only her.

Transfiguration was another lesson Nerisei didn't find that interesting. She knew though, that it was quite a useful subject, therefore, she did not allow herself to fail. After all, it was a core class for a reason. Not to mention that she had not got an Outstanding , but rather an Exceeds Expectations, in he O.W.L.s. For Nerisei, that was a big blow, and she had no intention of allowing herself to make the same mistake twice. No, the young witch was definitely going to fix her grades, before Dimitri took over her brain completely.

Though, unfortunately, that was quite hard to achieve, since Dimitri Moreau could not leave her head. Their relationship had grown stronger, and the couple had started spending more and more time together again, which led to Nerisei not paying as much attention as she should to her studies. Of course, she did not fail, but she knew she could do better than that. If only Dimitri could stop running through her mind all day...

Making her way to Transfiguration, Nerisei took the time to consider whether Dimitri would be attending. They were obviously not going together, since their schedules didn't match, but she couldn't remember whether he had a free period, or whether they shared the same class. That's what happens when you decide to fill your schedule with every damn thing, she though, sighing at herself. Maybe she had bitten more than she could chew this time.

Entering the classroom, Nerisei took the time to look around, only to find the classroom empty, once again. Did the Professor have a thing for cleaning, or what? One of the Head Girls was there too, but no one else seemed to be here yet. Moments later, more people seemed to fill the classroom, including none other than the male figure she couldn't stop dreaming about. Giving him a small smile, Nerisei motioned for him to join her, before turning back to the Professor, just as he was asking a question.

Sasha Denver, the Head Girl answered the question correctly, and Nerisei wanted to groan. She didn't have the chance to answer almost anything this term, and it was, the least to say, annoying. Ravenclaw was behind with House Points, and that was not good! The older witch refrained from demonstrating the curse, though, which gave Nerisei the chance to earn some point for Ravenclaw -- and prove herself capable--.

Moving forward a bit, Nerisei pointed her wad at the desk and muttered the incantation, before flicking her wand. Sure enough, an identical desk appeared, and Nerisei turned to the Professor with a smile. "Also, what Miss Denver didn't mention is that the Gemino Curse can also be used to bewitch an object into multiplying repeatedly when touched, but unfortunately, the how is still unknown to us."

Satisfied with her answer, Nerisei stepped back next to Dimitri and fell quiet. Hopefully, the Professor would reward her some extra points for her addition to the answer.

Today, Dimitri had had to walk to lessons without Nerisei, something the older male didn't find overly compelling. But, knowing the witch would murder him if he didn't attend the lessons he'd signed up for that year -- along with his parents -- Dimitri had made his way down to the Ground Floor for the lesson just about on time. When he arrived, Nerisei was already there, and the Moreau heir made a bee line for the witch, giving her a small smile as they waited for the lesson to begin.

Professor Hughes was still not -- even after all these months -- in Dimitri's good books for calling him out in the first lesson of term, but Dimitri didn't mind this class. The similarity with Charms and this lesson made it much more compelling than Potions, and thus the Moreau heir would listen to the professor.

The Charm they were studying today was one Dimitri was quite knowledgeable of, however, Nerisei and the Head Girl had covered pretty much all there was to say about the spell. The history of the spell -- no matter how interesting it might be -- had not been asked for by the professor, and thus Dimitri didn't think there would be much use in recounting it to the professor. So, instead, as Nerisei stepped back from trying the spell and succeeding in it quite well, Dimitri gave her a big smile, and mouthed the words 'well done' as she returned to his side.

Not to be out done, though, Dimitri drew his wand from his belt, and pointed it towards the desks, speaking the word "Geminio" with utmost clarity as he flicked his wand at the desk Nerisei had just made. Much like Nerisei, the Ravenclaw's efforts were rewarded with a perfect replica of the desk that they had been tasked with, and Dimitri looked much too happy with himself as he looked to the professor for further instruction.

Like he'd always said, Charms and Transfiguration were quite alike, and therefore went hand in hand.

Grayson nodded as Sasha Denver answered his question, glad that someone had done the reading. He was never quite sure what he could expect from his students as a whole, but he was relieved that at least one person was always able to answer whatever question he threw out, showing that he hadn't completely lost everyone's attention.

"Very good, Ms. Denver, five points for a correct answer."

He then stepped aside to let Nerisei Gerber give the spell a try, and smiled as the young Ravenclaw executed it flawlessly. He nodded again as she continued the Hufflepuff's explanation with a fun fact. "That is also correct, and well done, Ms. Gerber!"

He watched approvingly as his older years continued to approach the task with confidence. As more and more began to step forward, he had them form a line of sorts, so everyone had the opportunity to try their hand at the spell. He was happy to see that Dimitri Moreau was participating along with the rest of them.

By the end of class, the room was full of desks and chairs. Any failed duplications were quickly taken care of with the vanishing spell they had learned at the beginning of the year. When the bell rang, he was satisfied with their progress, and considered the class a success.


House points:
Sasha Denver: 10 for attendance + 5 for answer = 15 points
Nerisei Gerber: 10 for attendance + 5 for answer + 5 for participation = 20 points
Dimitri Moreau: 10 for attendance + 5 for participation = 15 points

Gryffindor: 0
Slytherin: 0
Hufflepuff: 15
Ravenclaw: 35
