Professor Head of Spencer ☆ Professor at TallygarungaGuest
26 year old Halfblood Human ☆ HE/HIM

The first day of his class had finally started and it was going to be an adventure most of these kids will never forget either in their mind or on their actual bodies, depended on how volatile things were going to get if he were being honest. Derrick had arranged the desks in a very peculiar way so that everyone had been in a circle and somewhat forced to awkwardly stare at one another versus the usual rows that other classes seemed to be fond about. The desks, however, were spread enough apart to make sure that people had enough room to still move and operate within their physical personal space and bubble, there was no need to violate that, yet.  On the board there had been a very well made illustration of his name 'Professor Derrick Ackers' written within stenciled letters and then just under that 'Or Professor Sparky' which had Professor stenciled but 'Sparky' drawn in such a way that it looked as if it were on a white flame from the chalk. 

He chose to wore a more casual outfit rather than the typical instructor's robe, primarily because he just felt really awkward and out of place when people looked at him wearing it, as if he were some kind of Mister, puh-lease. As the students started to funnel into the classroom a carefree smile struck along his face. "Walk on in! Grab a syllabus by the door, prepare for some really neat fun! Please, Please - Hold the questions until after I have told you a bit about myself. Everything you'll most likely need to know? On that neat little paper! Anything beyond that we'll just have to see if I know!" Derrick leaned against his desk and waited until every student had started to sit down and settle in a bit - even giving them enough of a grace period to interact with one another before he'd continue on with what he needed to say. 

"Look at the board, as it says, I'm Professor Derrick Ackers. Some of you may have heard the legendary tales of 'Sparky of Spencer', guy who went around setting stuff on fire in his wonderful youth? Welp, that's me! As such, you can also appropriately call me, 'Professor Sparky'. As stated in the Syllabus this first session is just to get an idea of everyone so that we can all walk in an understanding. SO! What I'll need. .. " He was thinking in the moment now as the tips of his fingers dabbled at the edge of his chin. "Let's go with Names, Your favorite Element, and. . . What you enjoy most about that element. We'll keep it class centric!"

Bourke ☆ Seventh Year ☆ Quidditich Player - Chaser , Muay Thai Assistant✩ Kaitore
17 year old Muggleborn Human ☆ HE/HIM

Tyson had nearly forgotten class was supposed to occur today due to his extremely light course schedule. It was easy to fall into the habit of actively trying to remember versus the few Sixth and Seventh years that took up a full workload. A bag was strapped around his shoulder while he pushed his way into class not being entirely the first student in the area but thankfully he wasn't the last. He couldn't take certain hits on his records if he wanted to make sure he got a good slot in any choice of University on top of that he was typically punctual, no reason to mess that up unless something happened that stalled him from getting to the classroom. 

His eyes peered over the desks that had been placed in a circular position and his head cocked to the side. "Yo' seriously. . .? Aight, whatever, I can roll with this." He gave a casual shrug at the idea of it before picking a seat that is more towards the center of the formation. Then proceeded to place his backpack down after he had glanced over the syllabus that had been grabbed on entry. What. Even. Was. This? A gaze shot towards the Professor who seemed to have been grinning the entire time as if he expected people to have some kind of reaction to his written 'masterpiece.'. 

'They really just let ANY person be a Teacher, don't they?' He questioned towards himself while reading over the paper in its entirety. Good thing he didn't start to take out his books because it seemed like they'll have very little use inside of the classroom. He hadn't seen anyone he knew yet so he mostly just kept silent giving a quick high-five handshake to his fellow Bourke Housemates that entered the room. School did have its perks. 

When the question came around he glanced about a bit and then stood up. "Yea, I'm Tyson McKennis and I guess my favorite Element is Earth. Dunno about enjoy but I like that it's pretty resilient in most cases and when it isn't, it just adapts and shapes to fit in its environment." He shrugged a bit and sat back down.

Spencer ☆ Sixth Year ☆ Guitarist/Vocalist - Local School Hero!✩ Kaitore
19 year old Halfbreed Sorceraic ☆ HE/HIM

"Aaah another class already. . .?" Alexander was still trying to get back into the swing of things, it's been difficult even with the support of his friends and new found family - Having his father's death hang over him had begun to make all this work he'd been putting into his classes even more exhausting. Even so as he entered the classroom he took up a smile as over-worn as ever to try and dodge any firm of idea that he may have been having a rough time. No one needed to see the inside so easily. As he grabbed the syllabus at the front of the door he took a gander at it while in transit and took a seat at one of the more further back tables and placed his back down onto the ground. A genuine smirk played across his face. 'Hehe, I think I'll actually like this tea-', the thought had been stopped suddenly as his eyes glazed across the 'More Active' than book learning. 

Merlin's Toe nails. . . That only meant a down hill roll for him and he wasn't liking the ride. He huffed and weaved a hand through his hair as anxiety started to set in a bit at how horribly wrong this class was going to be for him in the moment. Alex took notice of a nearby young man and gave a light casual wave towards him. "Hey there." He figured he may as well keep up his usual personality no matter the circumstances of his feelings. 

Then the usual instructions from a class that he had been used to slipped through, this would be his only shining moment! "Hey, hey. I'm Alexander Winfield, Alex is cool. I guess I kind of like fire and it's mostly because It's always been around in my life. Just have a natural affinity for it!" Which wasn't an entire lie, he did have uncanny talent with the element it just was the control bit that he lacked about it. Afterwards he'd start to sit back down in his seat just watching the door to see who else would enter into the room before the class took its fun move forward.

Spencer ☆ Seventh Year ☆ Junior Dance Instructor★ LilyCat
18 year old Pureblood Fairy ☆ She/Her

Cass wasn't far behind many others in arriving to class, and immediately moved toward a seat next to Alex, a brow risen at the way the tables were arranged before she then looked at the course materials. At least this looked like a fun class! It was one of the elective ones she'd chosen just because she had already practically  passed a lot of her classwork through Hogwarts. It was something to do, more or less. And even better,  she got do spend more time with her boyfriend.

"Don't stress," The young woman nudged Alex gently, able to see the slight tension in him. He'd told her about his kind of accidents with flame before, and she knew he would be worried about setting a bit too much on fire. "Just... try to do things in a way that feels right for you, not the way everyone else does it." She murmured, hoping that maybe it was a piece of good advice. When it came to her turn to introduce herself, she looked up with a bright smile.

"Cassandra Sullivan, reporting for duty! I'm probably a bit of a fire elemental as well, I guess... I mean, I'm an Irish redhead, need I say more?" She grinned and then chuckled softly with a small shrug as she watched the rest of the class.

Sturt Blackbird
16 year old Halfblood Human ☆ She/Her

She was... surprisingly early to class.

Samhain adjusted her backpack on her back, hovering near the door to the Elemental Magic classroom. She was relatively early, and didn't want to be the first student to enter. Everyone looked at you when they entered, and you were alone with the teacher, and it was so embarrassing. So, she stood near the door until another student, a dark skinned boy in Bourke colors, had walked in, before going in as well.

The classroom was set up different from what she had become used to. Instead of neat rows, the desks were in a giant circle. How were they supposed to see the board correctly? So she sat in the desk furthest from the door after grabbing a syllabus, so she wouldn't be stared at, before pulling out her supplies. That done, she looked up at the board, reading it over. Professor... Sparky? What on earth? She couldn't imagine being so familiar with a teacher!

She listened as he spoke, wondering what on earth he was talking about. She'd never heard of Sparky of Spencer, so that went way over her head.

The girl was surprised to see Alex again; was he in every one of her classes? It was starting to feel like it?

Samhain waited until it seemed nobody else would answer before hesitantly raising her hand. "I'm Samhain, like the festival. My favorite Element is probably... Earth? Like Tyson because it is sturdy and stays the same, and I know to expect."

Bourke ☆ Third Year Blackbird
13 year old Halfblood Human ☆ She/Her

Roe was a blessing.

Morgan couldn't help but to think that as the Chocolate Lab got the door for her, allowing her to roll herself into the hallway. Her arms were killing her, and she wanted nothing more than to return to her room and sleep for days. But she had to get used to working her arms this much again, or she'd never be able to attend her classes.

Finding the door with the Elemental Magic placard, Roe got the door for her again, and she rolled herself in. She grimaced at the sight of the circular desks, trying to figure out how to do this. At least she wouldn't be preventing people from taking their seats? So she chose the desk on the edge, Roe pulling the chair out of the way so she could roll up to the table.

As she pulled out her supplies, she read the board. It had little more than his name on it, so it didn't take her long. Then it was merely waiting until he started classes.

After he'd asked a question, she waited for a lull in the conversation before raising her hand. There had already been two Fires and two Earths, so she felt rather out of place. "My name is Morgan, and I suppose my favorite Element is Air? It's so flowing and free, able to do what it wants."

Mairead entered the classroom, and the first thing she noticed was the large circle.  She could feel the corner of her eye twitching at the sight.  Her middle.....was gone.  She looked around at the other students, then toward the professor, whom she noted was young.  And apparently also new.  What the hell was going on with the staff this year?

She fretted for a few minutes over where to sit, eventually picking a spot void of anyone else.  Her nerves were officially on edge as she pulled out her books and other typical tools for a class, despite his insistence that this would be a largely practical course.  She focused on making sure everything was placed just right, and once that was done.... all she had left to do was look up at everybody.  Some of the faces she recognized from her other courses.  Faces that left her largely unamused.  It was like a circus in here.

She wasn't surprised when she heard two of the familiar ones state they liked fire.  It was volatile, unpredictable.  She herself was incredibly adept at it, thanks to her family's bloodline abilities.  A curse and a blessing all at once.  Her eyes lifted to the two who had stated they had a preference for earth.  Finally, someone sensible.  

When she spoke, she remained in her seat, although the smile she always wore was stuck to her face.  Iit seldom came down if she could help it.  Made her more likable.  "I am Mairead, and my favorite element is earth.  It's stable, calm, predictable...but not without its own dangers or shifts."

Iris skipped her way to elemental magic.  Like most of her courses, it was one she was greatly looking forward to, and it sounded particularly fun.  She looked around the room in shcok as she saw the circle.  "Well....that's different." she said.  She had a preference for a seat, and while she felt uneasy knowing....it was not possible, she didn't fret about it too much.  Maybe this would be fun?

She giggled as he introduced himself as 'Professor Sparky'.  This teacher was already so much fun!  She was sure the class was quickly going to become a favorite.  She'd definitely have to take it again next year.

She hummed as he grabbed a syllabus, reading it over, and biting her lip as she did a small little happy dance.  So much practical work!  No boring textbooks to memorize!  This was going to be amazing!  "Yay!" she'd said excitedly.  She looked around and saw one of her housemates, and two other familiar faces--one of which she noted had been absent the day before.  She ran over and gave him a big hug.  "I'm glad you're back!  This is gonna be so much fun!"  She looked up to Cass, thought for a moment, then gave her a hug as well.

Bouncing as walked, Iris made her way around the circle to sit directly across from the pair, that way she could see them with absolute ease.  she rocked in her seat as she set her bag down and kicked it beneath her chair.  They were given a simple task and soon enough she was called on.  Her excited expression froze.  Why?  She hated speaking out.  Her voice dropped to where it was almost inaudible.  "I.. uh.  I'm Iris.  I like...... all of..them?  Is..that an answer?  I'm not very good with favorites..."

The lack of a traditional arrangement alarmed her. She understood that Tally wasn't the typical school, and while there was structure, it seemed that the teachers were far more atypical. it was refreshing, in most cases. The fact that the professor, of Elemental Magic no less, called himself Sparkly had Siwan sitting wide-eyed at her desk, nervously ruffling he paged of her notebook with one hand, and twirling her pen in the other. 

She listened as people from here and there spoke up, whenever they felt they had the opportunity, or enough courage. 

"Hello- erm, Hi" she cleared her throat and spoke a little louder. "I'm Siwan Llewellyn. I just moved here this summer. I er... Well I suppose I prefer water the best. It flows and adapts, but it persists."

Gerry didn't want to go to class after the morning that had happened.  The worry, the anger...then all the pain and guilt and exhaustion.  It wasn't what she was wanting.  She especially hadn't wanted the fight.  When the message first went up, she was just the worried sort of angry, nothing else.  Then it escalated and everything had gone downhill from there.  She'd stayed behind after he'd left and had at the tree some more until she crossed her threshold for pain.  After that it was a visit to the school nurse--jeez she was young, and she spent some time there as she got fixed up and bandaged.

She was late to class because of her own soured attitude and intentionally hurting herself until she got as much of the feeling out as she could.  She was late because she made it necessary to see the school nurse at all.  She had no real excuses outside of the bandages that still covered her hands and wrists.  She looked around the room and the weird arrangement of the seats and a professor who looked entirely too excited about whatever was going on.  She looked and saw Alex, giving him an awkward, sheepish smile tained with guilt.

She saw a stack of papers near the door she stood in and took one, then placed herself in a seat a couple away from Alex, making sure she wasn't on the same side as Cass.  Normally she was happy to sit right next to him but she felt weird and out of place.  She hoped she hadn't caused too much of a disturbance.an dbegan pulling out her book and papers.

The reactions, oh, they were glorious! Too bad Audrey had to miss out on it but he could always give her a little peep hole in the next class. As he crossed his arms he listened to each students preferred element, which often stated a lot about them as well as their reasoning for admiring the particular force of nature. A few fires were in the house so he felt a big smug and happy about that, but those pesky waters! It seemed that a student had lingered into the class a bit late and while he often would draw attention to such a fact she seemed to also have her hand wrapped up in a bandage. He'll let it pass this time and proceeded to walk in the center of the circle to get a closer look at his 'wards'. They all seemed to be from various houses which sparked an interest. 

One answer that caused his lips to tug had been the choice of 'All elements'. There always was one student which wasn't a negative thing, it often was a sign of someone who was easily content and found it difficult to make a choice when everything had been in equal measure of importance. "Awesome, gives me a good glimpse at how everyone is as a person and helps me to better assist each one individually if necessary." The Sturt who had just walked in was a clear fire lover in his mind that or Earth given her heavy appeal. "Since we have a bit more time today we'll bounce a couple ideas off focusing on the Term One element, Fire." Maybe this was a better way to get the students minds working on ideas they'd end up practicing on. 

"Fire - One can say it embodies passion, carelessness, spontaneous natures, and destruction. Truthfully, it is also the element that allows for creation and rebirth in some environments." How it clears away spots of old woods and trees in some parts of the world in order for new acorns to fall and give new life to the soil had been the first thing that came into mind. "In magic, it has various applications beyond this - forms and shapes. As a start I want each of you to think carefully, thoughtfully, and give an example of a spell that has a component of fire and the shape it takes and the intention behind the spell. What is it trying to accomplish? Keep in mind, fire isn't just suited for its raw potential of being a blaze." There were a few spells that could in theory be considered 'Fire' based and not hold the typical properties one would expect of a burning flame. Considering how limited the list maybe even with potential ideas for special creations he nodded. "For those that are less inclined about spells or would like to take a different route - Natural occurrences in the environment that hold the affinity for fire is also acceptable or objects used that have a necessity for fire. The main purpose is just to make sure everyone gets an idea of not only how it reacts and is incorporated magically but the various effects it could have across the board."

"Afterwards, I want each of you to write down two objects you would want to actively test against. Yes, yes, I know - Sounds pretty awesome. When you write it down just hand it to me and then you can pretty much leave this session. Next session, make sure you bring your wands - make sure that they're well managed because it can get dicey if you aren't keeping up with it. " He was interested in how creative everyone would be not only on their choice of object, but choice of spells they would use to test the hypothesis of finding out 'What is the reaction?' to it. Maybe even a surprise object on his end for each students.

Samhain paid close attention as the man began to speak, surprised he didn't say anything to the girl that had come in last. She jotted down some notes in her rather messy handwriting, making a dotted list on what he said about magic.

-passion
-carelessness
-spantaneous nature
-destruction
-creation
-rebirth

She bit her lip as she thought on a spell, before raising her hand hesitantly once several other people had given their answers. "One fire spell is Fiendfyre. It tends to take the shape of animals, usually Magical but some muggle as well. I can't think of a practical application it might have, but usually it is used similarly to hunting dogs, able to chase after living targets."

After answering, she turned to her journal, and quickly tore out a piece of paper, writing down

-bamboo
-iron

Once a few students had turned their papers in, she would walk up, giving hers to him and leaving the classroom.

Morgan paid rapt attention to the other students, listening curiously as they answered. Fire seemed to be relatively common, the most popular favorite. The class, like the others she had attended, seemed to be rather small. But that was fine by her, it allowed her to focus more easily.

The teacher was quick to speak up when they were done, and she hurried to note down what he said, writing it in her own version of short-hand. It allowed her to write quickly, and prevented people from copying her notes. She alone knew what they meant.

After another girl had gone, she raised her hand eagerly, knowing what she wanted to see. "It's not a spell, but bush-fires are natural occurences. Most people think they are dangerous and need to be put out, but they actually have a use. They burn out dry and dead plants in small amounts, so that a much larer fire can't start. With bushfires, there isn't enough tinder left to start a big fire but, without bush-fires, tinder builds up."

Once she was done, she quickly jotted down what she wanted to test against, 'tires, bamboo,', but held onto it, wanting to ask the teacher a question once everyone else was gone.

"Easy for you to say, Cassy Cat. . ." Alexander seemed to mumble to the woman. "You're not the one who can set someone on fire accidentally without a broken wand. . ." He wasn't even sure where to begin and knew that the concept of magic that raged between him made either practice difficult. But maybe she had a point to it all? If he could tap into the stronger side of himself incidentally then perhaps with intense focus and a lot of pain he maybe able to do the same again. "I'll try it but it's going to hurt like hell." He knew there was going to be havoc wrecked on his body. 

Then he was suddenly hugged by Iris as he laughed and wrapped his arms around the blonde-haired girl. "Hey there! Sorry I worried you, had some stuff come up that I needed to handle immediately." Though she already knew that bit probably. This was certainly a different greeting than he had expected but the warming embrace wasn't unwanted, it was another support from one of his close friends. Yea, he could count her as such though he didn't want to make her privy to everything, she was too sweet for the weight. His hand rose up as he waved at Samhain. "Hey there, Sammy." It was like he practically knew almost everyone in the classroom! Then casually waved towards Mairead as well though he didn't expect one back. She seemed the grumpy sort of person but nothing wrong with making friends. 

When Gerry walked in his smile rose even with the early morning fight he was glad she decided to come to class. His hand rose up as he waved towards her gently and mouthed voicelessly 'Glad you made it.'. Some may have considered him crazy for going to class considering but he couldn't wallow and he couldn't stop because there were things in his life he stilled need to attend to, take responsibility towards. 

"Well, I'm going to have to go with a lantern and candle! The purpose of it is to control and contain the fire not only for it to burn also to keep it from burning other things if it were to have an accidental spill. It's used to illuminate a room to be brighter which isn't as effective as other things but it's pretty cool. That and it has a myth and depiction of being an object of wisdom." He shrugged lightly, while he had known about the spells in composition he didn't perform them accurately enough to give a fair assessment so he went with a much easier route. 

His hand started to scrawl across a paper before handing it to the Professor. 

  • Waxed Wood planks 
  • Wool

Had been written down on the paper then he proceeded towards the door. He had class again with a few of them later most likely.

Everyone seemed to feel one way or another about the seating positions and at least it wasn't just him. He started to slouch slightly in his chair as he glanced over towards the side to notice that Morgan had entered into the room and his head lifted up in a bob to greet the young girl that he had met in the Common room. Hearing Samhain's answer and reference towards himself his hand rose up and formed a peace sign and a slow wave of the back of his hand towards her direction. "Word, that's what's up."  Then proceeded to nod as all the students cycled through and stated their answers. A few of them had been pretty familiar faces now that he started to notice it all. 

Then Gerry stumbled in late with what seemed to be a tight wrapping around her arm did she get in some hardcore training in? He wouldn't expect anything less from a devoted athlete. He had his own share of injuries from playing too hard or as some would say 'Practicing like he had no sense'. Sometimes results needed to be met. He gave her nod of his head as well in greeting then turned his attention towards the Professor who had wanted them to expand further on the idea of fire. At least they were going somewhere with this!

"Bluebell Flames Charm. It ain't like typical fires aside from the color a person could pick it up and walk around with it in their hand without worry of being burned. It's designed so that people can just man-handle it a bit but it does actually burn other things like materials. Clothing and plants and stuff like that. It can't be stomped out by water either so it's a pretty risky trick to pull around." The young man shrugged slightly as he leaned back into the chair with a side glance towards Professor 'Sparky'. "It's good that some containers can hold it too so it may make a pretty bomb cooking fire for some food if you ever need it." That or ward away some unwanted creature that is afraid of fire but putting it out was an entire process in itself. 

Once he had finished what he had to say he started to write on his paper the objects he was interested  in testing and handed it to the Teacher's desk before leaving the class room.

"Then maybe don't try... I mean, how does it usually happen for you?" The redhead murmured back to her boyfriend, some concern in her features when he mentioned that it would hurt. She didn't want him pushing himself if he was only going to cause harm to himself in trying. Reaching across, she clasped his hand lightly and gave it a small squeeze, though jumped a little when she was suddenly hugged! Cass had been so focused on Alex, and hadn't expected the blonde girl to hug her as well, and it took a lot not to react in a negative way to the surprise, before she smiled warmly at the blonde, "Hi Iris!" She chuckled then as the other girl grabbed a seat around the other side of the circle.

The redhead continued to watch Alex from the corner of her eye as the rest of the class went around talking about their element and  whatnot. She kind of wished he'd taken a couple of days off school to deal with his loss, but she would be here to support him nonetheless. When she saw his gaze shift to the door, she glanced over as well, and her expression became blank as she spied Gerry. She watched her pick out her seat, and then looked away as she shuffled her chair just a fraction closer to Alex's. And then more questions from the teacher and she ran a hand through her hair.

"Well, I'd have to argue against bush fires, since from what I've heard half the time they're arson-gone-wrong in this country, and can devastate whole areas in the middle of summer and kill people and a whole lot of wildlife," The redhead lifted a brow as she canted her head a little, "But a controlled burn off on farm lands is when people burn out a certain area of dry grass and wood, in order to protect their land and lower the chances of out of control bush fires from spreading or starting in the first place. Basically, uses up the fuel to avoid potential devastation." She'd actually had to ask about it because she'd seen the occasional burn offs over the summer and wondered what people were doing. It had been rather interesting, and led to her researching bush fires in Australia.

With her piece of paper, Cassandra wasn't sure what to choose, so she simply wrote 'Surprise me' before dropping it off and catching up with Alex to clasp his hand and walk out of the class room with him.
