  1. In truth, Derrick had been going slightly easy on the class. Finding his footing in what the general level of the student body had been when it came to manifest and developing the most basic of elements. While some seemed to struggle in certain sectors, collectively, they seemed to be at a point that something far more advanced needed to be put into place. It also could've been due to his most recent loss that he took a far more weighted step when it came to teaching but it had also been long over due, that much had been for certain. When the students started to roll into the classroom he'd wait for a moment before speaking. "Come on in, sit down. This time we're in for a slight diversion of a treat compared to what had been originally planned." He actually had spent a bit of time hashing over various ideas and methods with Audrey. An extra bit of school connection while she'd been around taking care of not only her new bundle of joy but Alex's own extended family from previous relations. "Make sure your wand is at ready, fully prepared and managed. No cracks or breaks, because what we're about to do could get far more dangerous with a poorly managed tool." While it wasn't entirely necessary for a wand to be used it made training and learning concepts far easier than jumping right into the 'Wandless' thought process. "Today we'll be investing time into a practice that is universal in understanding with Elements yet extremely difficult to master, even to perform at will due to the complication that comes along with it. What I'm talking about, Party People, is the melding of two elements to create another that isn't of the basic circle." It was then that his hand rose up to cast a spell on a nearby piece of chalk, letting it write out three symbols in runic terminology. 'Air, Water' were two markings set next to one another with the term for 'Ice' set adjacent to both; a connecting line between the three symbols. "By pushing all of ones effort and willpower forward, the elements of Water and Air can be used and melded together to generate a numerous amount of Ice styled or related spells." Gripping the edge of his wand tightly he started to trace through the air, a motion that had been partly connected to Water-based spells and the other half being that connected to Air-Based ones. A white glow of light resonating at the tip of the wand; at first water started to form taking an orbital shape before rapidly accumulating a thicker and chilling shell of translucent ice. The orb of ice hovered above his wand, twirling as if it were waiting to be released from an unforeseeable tether. "This is known as the 'Spera Glacias' spell." Flicking his wrist in a sharp motion the concentration of ice fled from his wand and towards a nearby wall, shattering with a cracking dispersal against the foundation. "Weaving together the elements is no easy feat, even many seasoned Wizards and Witches have yet to master the full wealth it can offer. But it is something that falls under the purview when understanding just how innovative Elemental Magic is on various levels." That being stated he waved his wand once more, summoning forth several dummies designed not only to be durable but intended to be obvious targets with the painted targeting sign etched at the center of their forms. "This will only be one of a few things we'll learn today involving the combination of Water and Air."
  2. Another class, just one more and she could finally relax in peace and quiet. Three classes were a lot more than just one, but Andy was trying to avoid another class full of students with different skill levels, where some couldn’t even do a simple spell while others excelled at more complexed spells. For the intermediate’s class, Andy decided to do some third and eventually some fourth year spells. Andy decided to put the tables in rows, giving people enough space to just come and go as they pleased from their seat, but left a corridor in the middle. She put papers on the tables and cast Illegibilus, whoever could remove the charm would be able to read the paper, where it contained further instructions for her class. Once students are able to successfully read the instructions, they are supposed to get a partner and use a Colovaria on their partners and then putting them back to normal. Andy just hopped this class wouldn’t get crowded, she wanted to end her day with a functioning brain. She sat on a chair and waited for her students to appear for her class.
  3. Andy decided to take a new approach to the class, after last term’s fiasco she was going to make thing easier. The beginners’ class was supposed to be the easiest, first and maybe second-year spells should do, everyone should be able to follow them easily. She adjusted the tables, making it rows but with enough space for students to pass and with a corridor in the middle, she didn’t want people hopping from table to table or having to crawl just to get to a spot their friends. She started preparing the spells they were going to use, the Bullarum Immortalem seemed like a fun idea to start the class, a child’s play and a childish spell, good to entertain children or fools who enjoyed multi-colored bubbles, she was sure some of the students would enjoy it. The second spell she’d make them do would be a Diffindo and as a third maybe Reparo. Yes, students should be able to use these spells easily without a complication, at least to get them used to wandless magic. As she prepared the class, thinking about what she could use for them to cut and repair, maybe she needed a target. She conjured several mannequins but only placed one at the end of the corridor, students would be able to cut and repair several Delores without a problem, and then fixing the ones they had cut. She had a good feeling about the class, now all she needed was for her students to show up.
  4. Across every single desk had been a pot, filled with dirt and what seemed to be a fully bloomed plant. Each one had been different in genus but one thing had been the same for each one, regardless of the type of flora it'd been. They'd been brittle, fragile and crumbling in despair, the coloration of petals had been off and they wilted under the light, while planted it seemed as if they hadn't gotten certain aspects of the nutrients it needed to keep hydrated. Stem's held a sickly pallor that reflected just how much they'd been suffering, that intervention had been a necessary option for such poor specimens. This, unfortunately, had been one of the many situations that some may end up running into in different parts of the world but certainly during severe droughts that could hit their current home at any moment - whatever Mother Nature's chaos demanded of it. He leaned against the desk and the usual expression of up-beat optimism had been struck away entirely, whatever had been on his mind still hadn't fully settled in. "Come on in, party people. I'll get right into what we'll be knocking this term out with." After the cursory introduction he awaited for everyone to file in and sit at a desk that seemed comfortable for them, there hadn't been any form of assigned seats as he felt it would restrict the feeling of freedom for the class. Pushing himself off of the desk and side stepping to reveal that his own table sported a pot with withered flower, clearly it had seen better days and it'd been his hope that in this class many of the flowers would be able to see them as well. "As you've all not doubt noticed, in front of you is a potted plant. Each one most likely different from your neighbor's around you. You may as well notice that it's not quite up to certain standards of living. They're dying, not yet dead, but on the brink of it." It had been dire straits but he hadn't wanted them to focus on the unfortunate condition that the fauna had been stuck within. "Considering that my way of saying, 'Welcome to Term Two of Elemental Magic.' " Afterwards there'd been an offered bow of a flourish before he continued on with his lecture. "Water has many applications and one of its primary ones is often in the thread of utility or support. Some of you may end up going into a personal belief or a job that involves preserving the environment in some fashion, this spell I'm about to teach you? It will help with restoring small plants and greenery." It wasn't one tailored towards the restoration of something as massive of a tree but managing the few things that it could target would still assist a bit of the ecosystem and the creatures that relied upon it to some degree. Derrick grasped his wand gingerly and started to trace it through the air to demonstrate the motion that instrument or one's finger would need while reciting the incantation. "Redde Aqua!" A pulse of magic pushed through the wand as the tip started to form a gentle stream of water that encircle the plant, pushing into the soil and towards the roots that had been embedded deep into it. Bit by bit, the health of the flora had started to improve. Perky and stout, the color of the petals vibrantly emitting as if they'd been recently colored by proper care. "I want to stress that this spell isn't designed to be a substitution for what the plant will need in a long term, but it helps it to keep fighting just a bit longer. Consider it more of a band aid to assist until nature's wrath has lessened and the conditions of its environment would end up a bit more amiable." "It is also what I call a 'gateway' spell. As much as it would assist Naturalists, it could also assist those following a path as a general healer." One of things he'd enjoyed about the subject of Elemental Magic, it had a piece of nearly every class that some of the students were most likely taking. Which meant that they would have extended tools that could be equally useful, developing an expansive repertoire in their arsenal. "And don't get frustrated if you don't get a hang of it easily. That's what we're working towards here."
  5. That was going to be the final class of the day, at least for her, she was too tired to think. She continued to wonder why she decided to do what she did, but at the end of the day, she had to admit it wasn’t about what was easier for her. The advanced class was probably the most amusing one to her, it was where most of the students didn’t require assistance, they could easily, or so she hopped, the spells she was going to have them do. For them, she had some fourth and fifth year spells. She displayed the room like she had done previously, rows, with a corridor in the middle, this time a larger corridor, she didn’t want anything destroyed in the process. She wanted them to use a Carpe Retractum on one of the mannequins, which now, all of them had the name Delores written on their forehead and a number at front. Once they successfully catch and pull Miss Delores to them, Andy will want them to use Locomotor and control the dummy at their will, as long as they didn’t break anything. Once all students do what they need to do, she’s going to let them engage in a dummy fight. Andy was sure the last class was going to be more amusing than the other two, considering the lack of effort she would have to put into it; for now, she just has to sit and wait for the students to appear.
  6. Tag: class students Date: OOC Notes: This was going to be Andrea’s first class at that school and she had every reason to be nervous; teens were overall unpredictable and then there were those who were stubborn and wanted to do the things their own way, she had nothing against her students trying to find new ways, but only after they master the spell. She had no idea what the previous teacher had taught them, but she assumed trying the basic spells was the best. She had a printed sheet with all the easier spells, she assumed everyone already knew how to make the easiest and simplest of spells by using a wand, so they shouldn’t have a problem doing them without one. “This is going to be one hell of a rollercoaster…” she thought to herself as she put small chests on the table, all the chests were locked and unlocking and locking locks were the easiest spells to make without using a wand, it made sense start with those. She wrote on the board the name of the spells they were going try. Andrea sat on the table, one leg over the other and rested her head on her hand, she watched over the empty tables as she waited for her students to show up, she had a list of the students enrolled on and for a moment she regretted ever applying for the position. She glanced over the rest of the paper sheets on her table with detailed information about how to perform said spells. Wandless magic was volatile and hard to control, it was a type of magic that was beyond comprehension to some witches and wizards, hopefully, everyone in this class had some aptitude to it or it was going to be chaotic. She just hopped nothing bad happens to anyone. As the students entered the classroom she got up and watched them get inside, she wanted everyone to be there, so she wouldn’t have to repeat the same thing twice, but that was always going to happen. “Good morning everyone. My name is Andrea Riverpond and I’m your new wandless magic professor.” She announced before looking at the list of the students. “Wandless magic isn’t an easy subject, is highly volatile so I’m expecting all of you to pay attention to details.” She said, crossing her arms and looking at everyone in the classroom. “We’ll be doing easy spells today. Any questions?”
  7. As she pushed open the broad doors which led into the lecture hall, Professor Lyell felt whatever nervousness migth've still been inside of her all morning slip away, vanishing like distant ghosts in the slips of time. She walked down towards the lectern table with a purposeful, no-nonsense stride, her flats echoing faintly on the tile floor as she scarlet-and-gold professorial robe flowed around her like a eagle protecting its' nest from attack from afar, while atop her head her fedora, the Springbok feather pointing straight up from the brim like a sentinel. Looking around a little, she counted over 20 students - most looking as though they were in the middle forms - and looking eager to learn; although she had the list of students by name in her hand, rolled up so that she could use it as a pointer, she always used the first one or two class days to get to know her students. It was one thing to know them on paper; it was quite another to tie the name to the face. Walking up onto the broad stage, the professor walked straight over to the table, atop which sat three rune stones, each as large as the textbooks the students had with them. Each one had ancient languages written upon them; it was Professor Lyell's way of introducing them to the study of ancient runes. After a few moments, she coughed quietly, took off her fedora and set it down on the table next to the runes. "Before you, on the lectern table before you here, are three stones. Ancient runes with a couple ancient languages on them; my question to you this first day is....which of these stones is real and which are fake?" she asked. For several minutes, the students - invited up to the lectern table by Professor Lyell - studied all three runes, examining them with sharp, quizzical eyes and bated breaths. Professor Lyell watched, noting which students took their time examining each of the three rune stones and which didn't...eventually, she called the students back to their seats. "Okay, which of you think its' the first rune stone?" After counting the number of students who answered, she repeated the question for the second and third rune stones, again writing down how many students answered for each of them. When she had the numbers tallied up, Professor Lyell spoke again. "For those who answered the second rune stone, congratulations! That stone was found near Bunratty Castle in southern Ireland almost two centuries ago and contains both Celtic and Pict language on it, both of which we'll study in this class. The other two....both are fakes; my question to you, ladies and gentlemen, is how do we know their fakes?" Pointing towards one student with her rolled-up paper, she said, "Yes?" "The languages," he replied. "And...?" Professor Lyell prompted. "The lack of languages on the other stones," the student asked, seemingly half-afraid. "That's right," Professor Lyell explained. "The forgeries contained symbology not regularly used by wizards and witches; the first one contained Egyptian hieroglyphics lifted from the Rosetta Stone, while the third stone contained Cambodian symbology found at the site of Angkor Kol Ker in northwest Cambodia. If these had been legit, they would've both had languages, scripts and symbols on them, not just symbols. But for those who answered one or three, don't fret; we've got all year to learn," bringing a light chuckle to the lecture hall. After a few moments, Professor Lyell continued. "Since I am new here to Tallygarunga, let me introduce myself. I'm Professor Tamara Lyell and I'll be your instructor in the study of ancient runes; by the end of this year, all of you here today will know just about everything there is to know about runes and their relationship to the wizarding world. But its' not just a classroom study; we'll do plenty of library work and - conditions permitting and permissions granted ahead of time - we may even go out into the field and search for runes for a couple days. The textbooks you have will provide the baseline for passing the course; how much you learn or choose to learn is up to you." After a few moments, she unfurled the rolled-up papers and began asking which students were which, the year having begun in earnest....
