Grayson had read a lot of books over the summer. Well, he read a lot of books whenever he could (he was a librarian after all), but he had specifically read a lot of books about teaching, and a few about educational philosophy. His first year as a teacher had gone fairly well - clearly, he was still employed - but he knew there was always room for improvement. And if he was going to take this teaching thing seriously, he was going to do his research.

So he had read a lot of books, and he had learned a few things. One particular concept that kept popping up was application: students wanted to know why they were learning what they were learning, and how it could be useful in the future. Of course, he had tried to do that last year, but he figured he could do a better job this year if he planned ahead. So after he read, he thought for a while, and he eventually came up with a plan.

He approached the charms professor with the idea first to make sure he wasn't treading on another teacher's territory, but the charms professor had been on board - something about the more practise, the better - so Grayson went ahead and coordinated their lesson plans to line up in a way that hopefully made sense. Transfiguration and charms often went hand in hand, so Grayson hoped that by this, his students would gain an appreciation for interdisciplinary studies, and would begin to notice how certain subjects often intertwined.

He was excited, in the geekiest of ways, to see how things would pan out.

The classroom was set up as usual for now, but Grayson hoped, if all went well, they would have time for a fun activity at the end of class. At the moment, each desk had a mid-sized toy upon it - dolls, plush horses, teddy bears, and a range of other stuffed animals - and on the board were a few words in his neat, cursive script: "The Hardening Charm." Underneath, in slightly smaller print, it said, "Bonus: Piertotum Locomotor."

Grayson sat back in the chair behind his desk, and waited eagerly for his first students to arrive.

It was finally Friday, the day all students had been looking forward to though perhaps the Slytherin third Years more than most because save for Transfiguration in the morning, they had the entire afternoon free. Yes, the little serpents would get to start their weekend early at the cost of an early, Monday morning class while the Gryffindors would get to sleep in the next Monday at the expense of having classes until the very end of Friday's school period. Captain Maria had already taken advantage of this and was holding tryouts. Every position on the team was up for grabs save Mimosa's because well, the team couldn't very well replace their star player now cold they?

So Mimosa was already in a good mood as she and Squid Boy walked into class, the witch waving cheerily to Professor Grayson before her eyes landed on the... toys!!! The child was so impressed with the layout of today's class that she stopped mid sentence (the girl had been explaining to Squid Boy how he should fly if he wanted to make the team), contemplating which desk to take and therefore which toy to claim. There were the usual stuffed baby dolls but Mimosa wasn't interested in them. A teddy was better but it didn't prove much of a challenge. Instead the young Beater's eyes it up as she saw a tiny stuffed Beater's Bat, the toy reminding her of her own fully customised Quidditch kit just waiting to be used.

Grabbing Squid Boy's hand, Mimosa dragged him along towards the furthest right of the class, down the second row and seated herself at the table with the Bat, leaving Squid Boy to take a place beside her where a doll occupied his desk.

The brunette could just feel this was going to be a good class.

It was the same pattern every day. You woke up, got yourself dressed, readied yourself for the day's lessons, loaded your school bag and went to the Common Room to wait for the entourage. The entourage would then leave the Slytherin Common Room and head up towards breakfast where the Hufflepuffs would join the ranks of the Slytherin entourage for the remainder of the journey. In the Great Hall the group would, mostly, split back off for their House tables, but there were the odd times in which people would break the unspoken rule of sitting at your own table.

Today was one of the quieter days, Nikolai had noted as he tucked in to a hearty breakfast. Though, perhaps that was because everyone was intent on listening to Maria talk about the trials that would be taking place that afternoon which would a lot of people were interested in. Nikolai included. Thankfully Mimosa seemed to know to pipe down just a little bit whilst Maria spoke at length, but almost the moment they had left the Great Hall, she had been talking incessantly about the best things he could do to get on the Quidditch Team this year.

Nikolai had let her continue on about all of this as they moved across the hall to Transfiguration, not taking too much of what she was saying to heart because the kid was not the best player on the pitch. She wasn't bad, of course, but she was not as good as she believed. The spiel was cut short as they entered the classroom, though, and even Nikolai was surprised at what they found in the room. Well, more confused, truthfully, until he glanced at the board to find the subject. Thank Merlin that Professor Hughes had the same annoying habit as Jake did, because the confusion didn't last long.

Especially when Mimosa took his hand and pulled him across the classroom to the seat she wanted to occupy that day, almost pulling his arm from the socket because he'd not been concentrating. Merlin he wished he had been, too, because the moment they arrived at their joined desk, the boy wished they could be somewhere else.

Where Mimosa had opted for a knitted Beater's Bat, she'd sat him at a desk with a dolly upon it that was much too pink for his liking. Grumbling incoherently, Nikolai took out his book and wand and waited quietly for the class to start, otherwise that would mean telling Mimosa she was an absolute pain in the backside, and that would not go down well with the witch, he was sure.

Besides, it wasn't as if he'd chosen to sit here.
