PostSubject: Ancient Runes - Lesson One AND Two (All Years)   Tue Sep 01, 2015 7:45 pm

Daniel was quite glad to be back working. Whilst his summer with Theo and Naomira had been more than fun, he had missed the routine of teaching. New appointments had, of course, been made over the summer, and posting results to the fifth and seventh years had taken a little of his time, but it wasn't enough.

After saying goodbye to Theo, who was getting himself ready for school that morning, and giving Naomira a soft kiss on the cheek, Daniel had left for work with a smile on his face. Today, he hoped was going to be a little different, and he hoped that the kids would get in to the spirit of the lesson.

Posting notes in each common room, Daniel had advised that the students bring only a notebook and pen, and wear suitable clothing for an outdoor activity. It had been vague, but it had been on purpose.

Now, he stood waiting for the students to arrive, hands in his pockets and eyes alert for movement both inside and outside the forest.

After her Defense lesson, Layla ran back up to the common room to change. She had threw her hair up into a bun and put on a pair of black shorts and a purple shirt. Professor Jameson had said to dress suitable to being outdoors meaning he must have not thought the robes were suitable for a lesson, therefore she decided to dress out of uniform. If it was not allowed, then she would be willing to serve the detention. Though, he was the Headmaster so if her said dress comfortable then she shouldn't get into trouble, right?

Just as the note said, she grabbed a notebook and a pen and trudged out to meet her class. She was a fan of her Ancient Runes class. To be honest, it was probably her best class.

Layla was a bit nervous to be going so close to the forest and she really hoped they wouldn't be going inside the forest. Once she reached the Forest, she saw that once again, she was the first student to arrive. "Goodmorning Headmaster," she smiled to the pretty man. Looking around, she wondered if Ethan would come and when. She hoped she wouldn't be the only one here.

Reading the note in the common room with a soft hum, Adaline summoned a slightly thick jumper from her room as well as her book bag, not really bothering to walk all the way to the girls dorm. Waiting for them to come and grabbing them, she left the common room and made her way out of the castle and down to the Forbidden Forest, where Daniel already was along with one other person.

"Good morning Headmaster." Adaline said with a soft smile on her lips as she made her way towards the two, standing next to the girl, a Gryffindor, and waiting for everyone else to arrive so the lesson could start.

Adaline loved Ancient Runes and she had already decided to look for jobs that had something to do with Runes, probably Warding. Curse breaking was a good alternative but with a child on the way, she didn't want to risk it.

Hearing that they would be outside had piqued Finley's interest more so for Ancient Runes. It had become, over the last year, the one lesson that Finley excelled in and it made him feel much better in himself to know this. Of course, he was not perfect, but it was character building.

Urging Naomi to go quicker - she always seemed to drag her heels when it came to Ancient Runes - Finley made his way down to the class with a smile on his face. This was, he was almost certain, going to be a challenge today, but what challenge he wasn't sure.

Noting the small group of people gathered, Finley slowed down, moving to the side of the older Ravenclaw, but not acknowledging her past a small smile which he didn't know if she'd seen. "M-morning, professor!" Finley greeted the man, his eyes not quite meeting the Headmaster's, but moving in his direction no less.

Having Ancient Runes out in the Forbidden Forest was certainly surprising but it made Aiden hum softly in amusment as he wondered what they could be doing out there. Shrugging his shoulders, he pulled on a warm jumper to help him keep warm and grabbed his notebook and pen that the note said to bring. Deciding that he would just leave his bag here and come back for it after Ancient Runes, Aiden made his way out of the common room and outside into the slightly chilly weather.

He had been very pleased with his OWL results, considering that he passed all of them with either an Exceeds Exception or an Outstanding. His siblings had been just as equally pleased though his sister had been understandably upset that he didn't get and Outstanding on Ancient Runes.

"Good morning Professor." The Slytherin said with a soft smile on his lips as he approached the slowly growing group of people, moving to stand next to the Ravenclaws, seeing as there really were't that much Slytherins there.

Ancient Runes was something that interested Kai, enough to want to become a Cursebreaker. He wanted exactly sure what their job was, but the Headmaster would know, right? Kai had dressed comfortable for a class outside, grabbed a notebook and pen and and walked down to the grounds. It was a nice morning, not too hot, nor too cold but just perfect, or so he thought.

With Ancient Runes being the first class of his day, it put Kai in a great mood. Seeing Adaline made it even better and he reminded himself to ask her if she wanted to walk to classes together this year.

Last year, Kai's OWL for Ancient Runes had been his highest grade and this year, he was sure the same would happen with his NEWT. The boy was patient as he waited for the rest of his classmates, though he silently hoped they'd come a bit quicker because he was ready for this class to get started.

If having Care of Magical Creatures indoors was confusing, it was nothing to seeing Ancient Runes being taught outside this lesson. Following the instructions, Sebastian got himself ready for the class, bringing a notepad as requested and hurrying down to the meeting area. It took him a short while, but eventually he could make out a group huddled by the forest.

As he got closer, Sebastian noted the Slytherin he'd been hoping to see since the first day and moved towards the younger boy. "Hey." Seb acknowledged his friend with his usual quirky smile. "Morning professor!" He added a moment later, hoping not to anger the headmaster with any rudeness that he certainly didn't mean.

The rest of the group he didn't really know very well, so he didn't speak to the rest, deciding on just standing around and waiting for the lesson to start.

Watching his students line up for the lesson, Daniel smiled to himself at the familiar faces before him. Of course, he would have been happier with a few more students, but honestly, that was their loss, not his. Waiting for a few more minutes to pass from the time they should start in case there were anymore students coming along, Daniel decided to get started.

"Okay, good morning everyone, looks like we might as well get started now. Today, we will be doing some team building exercises based around Ancient Runes. Try to keep you all interested in the subject, whilst working on your development." Daniel explained with a smile. "So, today we will be working on a treasure hunt, based upon your studies. You'll all work together to complete it, leave no one behind.

"Your first clue..." Daniel supplied, handing a piece of paper to Kai.

Clue One

"Work out what it is, and go find it." Daniel explained, smiling to himself. "Oh, also, everyone wands at the ready. I will follow you, but you will need them to tackle obstacles you may come across. When you're ready, please begin."

Damien was facing his worst nightmare. He was going to be late for a class ! He hurried into the Common Room and changed to some jeans, a grey jumper with a hoodie and a pair of sneakers. He grabbed his notebook and a pen and ran downstairs, running over some people and apologizing for such in a hurry in his way there.

He was anxious and was blaming himself for his lateness. To be late for one of his favorite classes was like a crime to him. It was only when he was close to the class' students that he realised that their class would be outside.

''I'm sorry for being late !'' He shouted when he got close to them. He stopped running and panted, tired from the run. When he regained his breath, he spoke to the Headmaster directly. ''I apologize for my lateness, Headmaster. May I still participate in this class ?''

Upon giving Kai the clue, Daniel looked up to the sound of shouting, his hand instinctively going to his wand in case it was trouble. His fear of trouble, however, was unfounded when only a student came lolloping up to them, incredibly out of breath. "Good morning, Mr Halloway." Daniel greeted the student with a small smile.

Whilst he might want for students to keep time closely, he understood that today was an exception. They weren't in their usual classroom, so he would forgive lateness on the understanding it was due to a mistake.

"Of course you may. Kai has the clue, you're all working to solve the clue, and then find the next one from the clue given. A treasure hunt." Daniel explained, he was sure the boy would understand the common game. "Wand at the ready, Damien, we will be heading in to the Forbidden Forest, and I'd rather you were ready for the obstacles." Daniel told the boy, motioning for him to join the rest of the class.


DUE TO THE LESSON NOT BEING FINISHED, THIS LESSON WILL CONTINUE ON TO LESSON TWO. THIS THEREFORE MEANS THAT 60 POINTS ARE ON OFFER THIS LESSON RATHER THAN THE USUAL 30.

ANYONE WHO WISHES TO JOIN THE LESSON IS MOST WELCOME TO DO SO, PLEASE JUMP IN!

Naomi followed Finley to Ancient Runes, happy for him that he'd get to enjoy his favorite class, but dreading it for her own sake. The runes didn't make sense to her the way they did to Finley: nothing clicked beyond the most basic meaning. Add magic to it and she was beyond help.

Standing in the crowd on the edge of the Forest, Naomi listened with folded arms as Professor Jameson explained the day's exercise. A scavenger hunt didn't sound too bad...

Despite herself, Naomi found herself moving forward, craning her neck to see the clue. It was a rune she recognized, one that meant one of the trees. It was on the tip of her tongue.

"Oak," she realized out loud, blushing when people turned to her. "Uh, the rune means oak tree," she repeated. "Beyond that, I don't know. There are lots of oaks in the Forest." She shrugged, moving back to stand next to Finley.

Adaline peered over Kai's shoulder at the clue, her brows furrowing slightly as she tilted her head to the side. She agreed with Naomi, the rune was oak but other then that she couldn't tell what else it meant. Biting her lower lip, she proceeded to think on what else it could mean.

"I'm.. with Naomi on this one.." The brunette flushed darkly when people turned towards her and on instinct she stuck closer to Kai. "The rune is oak but I don't know what else it means... In general the oak rune indicates shelter and security when it is used to build buildings but the oak is also involved in medicine..." She bit her lip and shrugged her shoulders. "Other then that I don't really know anything else..." Her brows were furrowed as she tried to think of anything else. Like Naomi said, there were lot of oak trees in the forbidden forest.

Watching Naomi move to the clue, Finley followed after her, with a little less confidence because of the older student who was holding the piece of paper. He could just about see it, so when Naomi called out what she could see on the paper, Finley grinned at the witch, giving her the thumbs up for getting it right because he knew this wasn't her best subject.

When everyone tried to say how there were so many oaks in the woods that they'd never be able to find it, Finley grew a little frustrated with the group. Did they not learn anything from the class with Professor Jameson?

However, articulating his frustration wasn't the simplest of things, so, moving past Naomi, Finley took hold of the clue from Kai, gently pulling it from his hands without a word.

In his other hand, Finley took his wand, and with the tip, he traced the rune, picturing it clearly in his mind and closing his eyes tightly. It couldn't hurt...

After tracing the Rune once, Finley opened his eyes, and with a grin appearing on his lips, a pathway seemed to have been illuminated for them to follow. "S-Some Runes have m-magic in them, s-so... follow the p-path." He told the group, not waiting for anyone else as he hurried off along the path that was being shown, wand raised high, and completely ready for anything that might come his way.

Daniel had stayed by the side of Kai, waiting to see how the class would do. It was slow to begin with, but as Naomi stepped forward and offered the answer to the Rune, he smiled to himself. Whether any of the other's noticed his reaction he didn't know.

However, the students seemed to hesitate at how to find where they needed to go. Daniel looked around each of them as they tried to work out how to find it. He was proud, to say the least, when Finley stepped forward, talking with as much confidence as he could, and correctly guessing how they would find the oak in question.

When the Ravenclaw set off, Daniel followed the group, eyes alert for any dangers that might spring themselves upon the group from the forest. None came though, and Daniel was glad of that much. Soon, they came to a small clearing, with an oak tree in front of them.

Before the tree, however, were boxes, marked with different runes upon them. One would give them the next clue.

The other two...

Well, Daniel had been known to be something of a practical joker when he was at school, so they would find out if they got the wrong box here.

"You now have to decipher the right box to find the next clue. Rule out the boxes that you know are not going to help you, and hope that you can find your next clue... and perhaps your way back to the castle." Daniel told the group, because as you looked around now, the forest was dense, and it was difficult to know the way back. Especially with the magic in the woods


OOC: Have fun with this - I will be on hand to write the consequences of opening the wrong box if it should happen!

Aiden followed the mass of people into the forest, his lips pulled into a soft smile. When they got to the right tree though, the Slytherin's eyes narrowed as he listened to their professor's words.

Alright, Aiden got the gits of what they were supposed to be doing, but still their Professor could have explained it a bit better but then again Aiden didn't really like getting too much help in this department, seeing as his sister would have his head should he fail this class.

Moving towards the box on the left, Aiden knelt down and eyed the rune on it. The rune was Nauthiz. Aiden was sure that this rune had many different meanings but one meaning that he did remember was need. Frowning, he rubbed the back of his neck before turning his head slightly to the girl standing next to him.

"What do you think Adaline?" He questioned the Ravenclaw as he sat back on his hunches and let his childhood friend come closer to inspect the rune.

"I don't think this is it." Adaline said softly as she held her stomach while crouching down. "The rune is Nauthiz and it generally has a negative meaning with it. Some people say it means need. Some say it means pain. But most do say that it's seen as a rather negative rune. This rune also means poor health and broken relationships so I am quite sure this is not the rune we are looking for."

Aiden huffed softly at her words but conceded the point. It had been just a random guess of his to come to this box and see what rune it was. Now that he knew it had a negative meaning he was sure not going to touch it, lest it would have a negative impact on Adaline and her unborn baby.

Moving away from it he moved to the right one with Adaline following closely behind him. He let Adaline go first to inspect the rune before he approached her.

"I think this could be the right box." Adaline said as she narrowed her eyes upon the rune she saw. "This is the rune Ansuz. It's meaning differs from what people think but the general census is that it is a rune for communication, knowledge and wisdom and, according to Odin's Rune's it also means that great power and knowledge will be revealed."

"Alright, let's try this one then." Aiden murmured softly as he waved for Adaline to move back just in case it was the wrong one. While he knew that their Professor wouldn't be malicious in what was in the wrong box, Aiden did not want to take the chance of his sister in all but blood being injured and intentionally loosing the child she was carrying.

Slowly tracing the rune with his wand, Aiden stayed crouched and waited for what would happen.

OOC: I am so sorry I forgot about this! Bad Jake!

Watching the students step forward, Daniel smiled to himself as he watched the two work through the clues on the box very carefully. Their arguments were very valid, and a hint of pride touched Daniel's features in that moment, because his students were, quite frankly, thriving.

When they made their decision, Daniel waited for a moment and then...

BANG!

An explosion of confetti flew from the box in question, probably making a few of the students jump. "Well done!" Daniel congratulated the two of them with a grin. A small orb lifted from the box. "Follow the orb back to the castle, I'm afraid that's all we have time for today!" He explained, motioning everyone to follow the light without any further instructions.

"I'll note your house points on your notice board within your Common Rooms, so make sure you look out for it!" Daniel called after the group, following the last person out to make sure no one got left behind.

Class Now Closed.


House Points
Kai Reed = 20 points for attendance
Layla Taylor = 20 points for attendance

Adaline Harris = 20 points for attendance + 20 points for participation = 40 points.
Damien Halloway = 20 points for attendance
Finley Allen = 20 points for attendance + 10 for participation = 30 points.
Naomi O'Hare = 20 points for attendance + 10 for participation = 30 points.
Sebastian Aquila = 20 points for attendance

Aiden Harvey = 20 points for attendance + 20 points for participation = 40 points.

TOTAL:
Gryffindor: 40
