Professor Head of Spencer ☆ Professor of Elemental Magic, Head of Spencer✩ Kaitore
27 year old Halfblood Human ☆ HE/HIM

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."

15 year old Muggleborn Human ☆ She/Her/Hers

Elemental class was one the classes that Lexi seemed to enjoy the most, the Professor didn’t have a mean look and was helpful. It wasn’t the only reasons, but they were the most acceptable ones. Lexi quickly made her way into the classroom and sneaked inside trying to get a seat in the back of the room, furthest away from the Professor, just because she enjoyed the class didn’t mean she was going to seat up front like the bookworms, she enjoyed her freedom in the black of the classroom, she could eat, drink and play games whenever the class was starting to get boring.

Once she was comfortable, Lexi put her wand on the table before looking up. Who would treat their wand so poorly that it would have cracks on it? Or even break? She took care of her wand like it was one of the most precious things she had, and in a way that wand was far more precious than her most precious things.

The conversation dragged on and Lexi yawned a little as the Professor spoke about using two elements at the same time. She rose her head, confused about what elements would he want them to use? Fire and water? Or perhaps a bit of fire and earth to be a bit more destructive? It didn’t matter, her thoughts quickly came to a halt when he mentioned the elements they were going to use. Air and water … but what the fuck was that man saying? Wasn’t cold enough already? Did he want them to just make ice during the winter?

Lexi watched the Professor confused, a lot of things were crossing her mind, one of them was that the man probably had hit his head and thought it was summer, but she wasn’t going t argue with it, but she did have some questions about it. She rose her hand and waited to have permission to talk. “Are we required to cast a water and air spell first? Or can we jump to the freezing spell?”

Bourke ☆ Fifth Year ☆ Apprentice BakerKirupachi
15 year old Halfbreed Veela ☆ She/Her

Through half of the year, Samantha always looked forward to Elemental Magic. Fire and water were her bread and butter due to her Veela heritage, and they were two of the very few topics across the school curriculum wherein she had little to no difficulty achieving all goals with flying colors. However, as the year kept going by, she realized she had to contend with the rest of the element she wasn't so savvy with. Earth, and air. She was under the assumption they'd be tackling one of the two in the third term as both of her preferred elements were expanded on in the first half of the school year, and that was quite demotivating to say the least.

"Good day, Professor." She greeted cheerfully nonetheless, not letting such a thought get her down - at least not when it came to her manners. Spotting a Spencer friend of hers already in class, the Bourke made her way to sit beside her. They had already met through the lengthy school day but she greeted her as well nonetheless with a wide smile.

The lecture began immediately, much to her surprise. She sat still and paid attention, difficult as it was to do so, only to hear that the class wouldn't be what she'd expected; instead, they'd be pushing the boundaries of what they knew with their elements, and fusing water and air to create and manipulate ice. On the one hand she felt relieved, being able to utilize someone that was second nature to her; on the other hand, she'd have it clash with another thing she wasn't so good at, if at all. It didn't bode well for the young half-Veela, and she felt like she had a fifty-fifty chance of succeeding.

She retrieved her wand from its holster and inspected it with the warning given out. It had always been quite the stiff little piece of wood, though she had never actually have an issue maintaining it or its potency; if anything, her many accidents were solely her own fault. Samantha's nose wrinkled as she lowered the wand back to desk level, confidence shaken by what was supposed to be her favorite class.

"Is there any special method we should keep in mind to make the combination easier on ourselves?" She decided to ask after her Spencer friend got her answer. Hopefully so. Having such a disparity of competence between elements could result in unfortunate accidents.

17 year old Pureblood Human ☆ She/Her

All the chatter going around involving endless complaints on how the break had come to a close was starting to get under Rachel's skin. To her, it was a good thing - she finally could continue training again, and at least a few people would remember she existed at last. There wasn't much to complain about on her end; it was made all the sweeter by having Elemental Magic in the first week of school, even if it was on a Friday. It was her favorite class. It would always be.

She ignored her fellow classmates and sat down at her usual spot, watching the lecture in silence. She crossed her legs under the desk and her arms under her chest as she paid attention. Ice, eh? It was something she had accomplished before, on her own time; plus, she had the benefit of being a year older than everyone else due to her academic itinerary. It would all be a cinch, as far as the redhead was concerned.

She didn't need any prompt, nor did she wait for the questions to be replied to. Flicking her wand in a motion mimicking the Professor's, she uttered the incantation - one of the rare times she had to do so in the subject in particular - and ice formed, flying in the direction of one of the dummies. The effect of the impact had been the same, and after the spell she limited herself to twirling her gnarled wand between her fingers. One thing was certain - the teacher would have to do better than that to stump her in Elemental Magic of all things.

16 year old Halfblood Human ☆ She/Her

It had been quite the task to recover her butchered sleep schedule throughout the week. Of course the change had to happen during a Monday - there was no weekend for Lisa to adjust her hours during, and her body had to cope with the workload and practice regardless of how exhausted she felt throughout any given day. By Friday she had normalized it somewhat, give or take an hour. It made it so that, for once, she didn't have to rush in the morning to get things done in order to head to class.

Walking into the room with a minimally pleasant disposition, she quickly took her seat next to her redheaded friend (if one could call it that) and paid attention to the lecture. The prospect of tackling more advanced lessons brought a confident smirk to her lips as Derrick continued - that was far more her speed, and for once she wouldn't have to feel like she was dragging herself down so others would keep up.

'Hopefully.'

Targets were put in place for the students to aim at. In the back of her mind ran the stray thought of having seen too many dummies that year already (some of which blown to bits), but there was no point in bringing that up; if the method worked, it made sense to keep reusing it. Whipping out her wand, she took aim at the center of one of the nearby dummies without bothering to get up from her chair.

As Rachel did her spell, Lisa followed suit; despite the lack of an incantation, her spell hit the dead center of the painted target on the doll without much apparent difficult, such was her practiced targeting in dueling. The ice shard, however, had been a bit flimsier than she would've liked it to be. Did she still have some kinks to work out when it came to blending the elements? "Hm..."

15 year old Halfblood Human ☆ She/Her

Amber was late. She had overslept from the recurring exhaustion she had been suffering, and as a result feet shuffled along the busy underground hallway quite quickly and with a strange hint of grace to their movements. The Spencer had already missed the first class of the day (which she didn't even remember what it was at that point) and wanted to ensure she didn't arrive late to Elemental Magic either - she had already gotten there late once that year over a bunch of kittens, and she didn't need it happening again.

With the finish line finally in sight, Amber crossed it into the classroom and skidded to a halt. Students were still pouring in, indicating she actually wasn't late - all that effort had been for nothing. Bless her stamina, at least, as she wasn't short on breath from the exercise; a bit hot under the collar at most, though it was something she had learned to be able to withstand out of hanging out with certain people whom enjoyed fire a little bit too much.

"I'm on time!" She said to herself in disbelief, eyes widening with the realization. Spotting (one of?) her favorite Bourke sitting down, Amber quickly made her way to her cousin. After a light finger salute to Lexi, whom was sitting next to them, she joined the pair and stretched out her legs under her desk while questions were put forth to the Professor. Once they had been replied to, she leaned over to Samantha.

"Where's Harvey?" She asked with a raised eyebrow. The Pygmy Puff was nowhere to be found, at least that she could see - not inside pockets, not on Samantha's shoulders, not on Lexi's death, and not chomping down on her own ear.

"He was asleep so I left him on his own. He'll be alright. I'll go pick him up after class." Samantha didn't want to disturb the cute little creature, and it wasn't like Harvey would cause damage to the room if left by his own devices for a little while.

"Thank Merlin." Amber ignored the glare that earned her for once and leaned back on her chair, watching the class in silence. Air and water? While she was a natural when it came to the air element, she couldn't help being highly curious about how to pull it all off.

Flinders ☆ Fifth Year Kirupachi
15 year old Halfbreed Dhampir ☆ He/Him

Ian could already tell the class would be a packed house that day while he turned the corner to the hallway of the classroom - multiple scents, all of which familiar, invaded his nostrils and announced their presence at his destination. He preferred more lively classes such as that one - more things would be happening all at once, which led to him having less time to focus on things he shouldn't.

The Dhampir walked into class with a very much expected grin plastered upon his lips. "Good morning, Professor!" He greeted with good cheer. He stood near the entrance of the classroom so to scan where to go, and once spotting three of his friends sitting close together, he made his way towards them. Ultimately he sat down on the unoccupied seat beside Lexi, making it so the four Fifth Years were all in a neat line next to each other. If only there had been a Sturt among them, they'd have one of each house!

The lecture quickly got underway. It felt relieving to know that, despite them tackling multiple elements that time and the difficulty that expected them, they wouldn't start with fire - it was the bane of his existence, and even if a lot of students enjoyed performing such feats in the middle of Winter, he was in the opposite camp in that regard. He waited in silence for the lecture and questions to fully finish prior to attempting the spell so to see if there was any question he'd have himself.

"Oh man..." Out of the many subjects that he signed up for, Elemental Magic was one he underestimated the most. With a name like that, he always imagined it was just going to be the mastery of regular elements, but the execution was actually not as easy as he imagined, with would lead him spells to sometimes fizzle out or take many attempts before getting them correctly. And today he felt was only going to be trickier for him, as they were going to combine elements and make new ones! The element in question? Ice. Coldness was never a friend of his.

Taking notes of what Professor Ackers talked about, the time would eventually arrive for them to perform a practical demonstration. Putting down his pen, Gideon pulled his wand into view, a vaguely firm grip on the tool in his hand, as he looked around his fellow students. There were questions and spells flying about, and taking notice of how they were performed, he tried to see if he could match them. Whispering the incantation, the gently performed the motion as instructed... only for the small sphere of water to not condense.

"Huh??" He stared at his wand, not understanding what he failed to do. Blinking, he furrowed his brow, and tried to perform the motion again, his voice now spelling the incantation more clearly. And still, the ball of water at the tip of his wand barely began to freeze, looking more like it was thawing than freezing. Seeing some semblance of progress, he tried a third time, noticing that the ball of water was now more visibly frozen. With a smile on his face, he looked at one of the dummies, and with decision, he flicked his wand to strike the target with his ball of ice.

However, things wouldn't go his way so easily, as the ball of 'ice' would start... dissolving as it traveled in the air. And once it hit the dummy, it was more like a ball of water with a thin layer of ice wrapped around it, the splashing sound of the impact overpowering the gentle cracking noise, leaving the target more wet than anything. The student looked dejected as his eyes went from the dummy, to the wand in his hands. "Aw, cripes..."

"Excellent question, Miss. Stewart! If you feel confident enough that you believe you can meld two elements through will alone? Then try it. But if you're uncertain, think you need a bit of practice? I'd suggest casting two separate spells - One of Air and one of Water to get a feeling of each one. How they are at their core, how they react." Derrick presses himself from the desk he'd been leaning against. He was aware that some individuals held a certain affinity towards other Elements, some may hold even an overall neutrality towards them. There had never been a simple answer when it came down to it, each individual needing to gauge themselves and he was well aware of it. "Another great question, Sam. Piggy-backing on Lexi's question and answer will offer that 'special way' of sorts. Think of testing both spells as a kind of 'meditation' period. There's also taking the spell step by step, don't try to force the full form of it. Only go in shifts, build it up. This way you'll start to understand it within yourself which means getting better each time."

Spending the last few years as the young Bourke's instructor he was well aware of the certain difficulties she held in particular elements. He smiled towards her as a means to try and lift up her spirits. "You've been doing great this year too, Sam. Don't doubt yourself or confidence now. In fact, for those that feel they may struggle with one or both elements why don't we try a few 'pot shot' kind of spells of the Elements? Get yourselves used to it, how it feels when you cast them.

A chuckle escaped from him at the various ways the spells managed. It seemed that a few had managed to already start with the varied effects of the spell becoming fully hardened in a frozen shell of ice while others seemed to dissolve entirely through the process of its travel. "Keep your head up, Gideon. Remember, everyone, there's no reason to get too messed up about not getting it. I adjusted the intended course because I have absolute certain faith that you all -can- do this. You've worked hard this year that proved you were all ready for this step. " He wasn't one that put up false praise, every bit of it had been what he believed of the students that had been within the classroom. 

"Spells to use that can help to build-up before starting would be ones that use Water as form of orb or ball as well as those that use Air's currents to either heat up or chill slightly." It had been the separate pieces of the intended spell for what had been demonstrated for the Ice Spell that had been shown to them. Setting the premise that understanding each separately may assist in understanding them combined in a complicated mesh together. "And if you're still not entirely sure we can spend some time working on it together. As you all know, I'm a Fire sort myself. When I first started this spell? I kept evaporating the water -entirely-." He laughed than offered a beaming smile towards them. "And look where I am? And if I can do it? Any one can!"

Students continued to fill the classroom, she waved at Amber who had greeted her, in a rather unique way, but Lexi didn’t think too much of it, simply greeted her fellow Spencer. Lexi shrugged at the question about Harvey, she hadn’t seen the little thing, but Samantha quickly answered. By then Lexi’s mind was more interested in Ian, her Flinder’s friend who had sat next to her. She gently nudged his arm in a greeting manner, followed by a bright smile before her attention landed on the Professor. She had to admit that class was one of the classes worth attending.

The professor answered her, giving her the option of making the spell alone or just the other two, Lexi had to try it both ways. She wasn’t going to let a simple icy spell hold her back, but for now she simply had to listen to what the Professor had to say.

Once students started performing the spell Lexi tried her luck. She pointed her wand at some place with no people and performed the spell. The spell performed by her was not good, it was simply a jet of water pouring out of her wand. Lexi tried to stop the spell, but she couldn’t. “Crap crap crap…” she spoke in a low tone, as her wand just kept on pouring water, flooding the floor around her and whoever was nearby. After a few tries and a few smacks on the wand the water finally stopped pouring, by now they were a giant puddle of water.

Lexi took a deep breath, she needed to freeze something, not get it wet. Upon trying the same spell, the same way, and expecting different results, a stronger jet of water originated from the tip of her wand, like a high-pressure hose chipping a bit of her table. “Holy cheese and crackers.” She exclaimed as she tried to stop the spell once more and failing miserably at it

Kairi worried a bit at his bottom lip as he made his way to class. Like usual, his head had in some book until he had bumped into something hard and hurt himself. If it were possible to have an extra set of eyes, then he would sign up for that, if only to stop himself from bumping into things. Mostly, this was part of Kairi pretending that he wasn't interested in classes or anything outside of his "secret life", but he really seemed to enjoy Elemental Magic. Like most of his classes, he found that there was likely more to look into, which was great for him. Better the devil you know and all that.

Upon entering the classroom, Kairi looked around for a second or two before taking a seat in the front row. It made it easier for him to focus on the class, and so he could fully understand what was being said. Lipreading over the head of others wasn't exactly easy. He took notes silently as he listened to the Professor's explanation subject that is important now. The fifteen-year-old took his wand from his schoolbag and looked it over for any damage. For all the times he'd had his cat chewing on it, it was in a good condition, and he couldn't see any faults with it. Kairi made a deep, long sound of suffering once he found out what elements they'd be working on. He was terrible with the air element, even though he'd tried his best to practice with it in the past. He was just couldn't exactly get his head around it, but all in the learning.

Kairi stopped writing as he listened to the professor's answers to some other student's questions and comments. He thought he might have understood what was being said and felt like he was at least confident enough to try something. After cracking his knuckles and trying to relax himself a little, he picked up his wand and found a place to aim his attempt. Like always, everything was a hit-and-miss experiment with him until he got it right, which Kairi usually hated.

"Holy heck!" When Kairi had cast the spell how he was supposed to, the attempt had ended with him mostly blow hot air out of his wand. "Free blow dry wasn't needed." The boy tried another attempt at making ice with the combination of the spells, but no go. The same thing seemed to happen to him again. No need for bedhead, huh?

While Samantha would agree that she had been doing spectacularly in the subject for the duration of that school year, there was a reason why - both earlier terms had dealt with the two elements she held complete mastery over. At any other time Samantha was doomed to fail. She knew it, and she knew Professor Ackers knew it too, but as a result his attempt at boosting her confidence fell flat. All she could do was smile awkwardly with disagreement barely hidden in her expression.

"Cheer up, Sammidoodle." Her favorite Spencer spoke up. "Practice makes perfect! Y'know everyone's gotta start somewhere, yeah? Just give it a few tries 'n don't worry too much about it." The little speech made an amused smirk grow on Samantha's lips, and she arched an eyebrow.

"You, of all people, saying that? You always get things the first try."

"Oh right, I hafta do it too." Amber blinked dumbly at her own statement, having become so embroiled with the Bourke's success that she forgot it was her own turn to try as well. Brandishing her wand she was about to perform the spell when her feet moved and she heard an odd, wet sound coming from the soles. Looking below Sam's seat, she noticed water pouring onto the floor and covering the whole row. Following the trail with her eyes, she noticed Lexi was having a bit of a predicament.

"You alright? I got you." Ian interrupted his own moderately successful attempts at fusing the elements, getting up from his seat. In the meantime, Amber took a deep breath and decided to focus, lifting her feet off the floor so not to ruin her shoes.

"Here goes." She started by creating a tightly packed, dense sphere of water the size of a fist. Once it was normalized, she attempted to create air around it, and slowly push it towards the water in an attempt to 'fuse' it; for as well intentioned that idea was, she didn't fuse anything, only creating an ungodly amount of pressure in the water. Eventually its need to break free overwhelmed the air pressure, resulting in an explosion of the liquid - it sprayed everything in a considerable radius.

Ian was caught by the brunt of it, having stood up to help Lexi. He was thrown off enough that his foot slipped on the already drenched floor, and the boy came crashing down on his back, his body producing a loud 'splat' sound on impact.

"...Um..." Samantha was soaked from head to toe, still holding onto her wand, hesitating to proceed given the state of affairs. 'At least it wasn't me this time...'

Putting her wand down and stretching out her limbs upon succeeding with her task, Rachel decided to phone it in for the rest of the class - she didn't care much for performance, and if she wanted to have fun expanding her elemental spell repertoire, she could always do it on her own. It wasn't like she cared about house points half as much as the girl sitting next to her.

The redhead watched Lisa succeed, if questionably, at the spell. She didn't look at all pleased with the outcome. "S'that all ya got?" Rachel goaded for once - it was rare when she got the upper hand on Lisa, and she wasn't going to let that slip through her fingers.

"Shut up." Came the response from her friend, which brought out a chuckle as a reaction. By every metric she had passed what was required of her with the task at hand, but Lisa wasn't one to be satisfied so easily; she needed to make the spell as strong and versatile as could be in order to be pleased with herself. As she charged up a second try, the pair was distracted by a commotion a little ways away from them.

"Oy! You alright?" Rachel called out to the downed Ian - the fall had looked quite painful and watching people get hurt wasn't her cup of tea. Lisa rolled her eyes at the scene, though the distraction made her release spell sooner than she had intended - as well as not nearly as fine tuned. An oversized shard flew towards the dummy, slicing its head clean off before finally being stopped by the wall behind it.

"Oops." That was a very big dent. It was perhaps for the best that it was a magical environment, otherwise Lisa would be wholly incapable of affording structural damage repair.

Spencer ☆ Third Year Lanku
13 year old Halfblood Human ☆ He/Him

As class rolled on, Dom was enjoying watching everyone have their own struggles or victories with the spell. Having an affinity for air (as he found out in earlier sessions), he figured this would be an easy enough task. He put aside the war flashbacks of his attempt at controlling fire and singeing off his eyebrows (honestly, who didn't do that their first go?). If he didn't keep control, his wand could be rather volatile. Luckily, it seemed like this would be an easier time. He was already halfway there, and water was definitely less explody than fire.

Unless you're one of the other students. Her water ball exploded and doused everything around it. He ducked out of the way of the liquid shrapnel with a laugh. "A little warning would be nice." He joked around for a second, but grabbed his wand tight, and focused on the task. He began moving his wand in the Air pattern first, creating a small breeze around him. He then threw Water into the mix, keeping the air circulating around the tip of his wand as a small ball began to form. The ball grew three times it's original size and started to lose its shape. Dom focused more on the Air and the wind swept around the entire sphere, making a small whirlpool spin inside the water. It was quite beautiful, and Dom was enamored, but kept control. After all, we already had one flood. 

Keeping full control of the spinning orb, Dom decided to give the spell a try, "Spera Glacias!" he exclaimed. A chill surrounded him as the air currents cooled and froze the swirling ball in an almost perfect sphere. There were trails of water that jutted out like icicles. He curiously stared at it for a moment, noticing that the inside was still liquid. He had made a frozen shell, but it would work for a first attempt. He flicked it at one of the targets, colliding and soaking the dummy near the bulls-eye. He smiled, "Not bad for a first go. I can do better, though." 

He swept through the moves once again, paying more attention to the water instead of the air this time. "Spera Glacias," he repeated. He understood the spell now. The water was moving too fast to be frozen properly last time. He kept it as still as possible as the chilled air spun across the orb. It was more solid this time, though the core was still slushy. Still, progress. Again, he gently tossed the ball at the target, but his wand had other ideas. The frozen orb hurtled across the room, shattering and sending shrapnel around the room. "My bad, guys," Dom said, laughing nervously.

"Nnngh..." Even Professor Ackers managed to catch his blunder, making the boy cringe at himself over his failure. At least he knew the professor wasn't very mean about failure, and instead would try and keep their spirits up, but failure was still failure, and the last thing he wanted was to fall behind his fellow students. Doing a sigh, Gideon decided to try out the trick of trying to summon two spells and combine them. First it would come the water, his wand doing a gentle wave as he wordlessly performed the incantation to cast water. Successfully, he managed to get the small water balloon at the tip of his wand.

Then, he proceeded to use air to try and freeze the water ball. He furrowed his brow in concentration, as he tried to apply just enough condensation to replicate the effect of ice in a way that would hold. Such was his focus that he didn't actually notice what was happening around him, and after a small moment, his ball of water began to freeze up, this time showing a much sturdier shell of ice than before. "Woah...!" He let out, looking amazed that the method worked. And just as he was about to fling the projectile...

A sudden explosion of water happened right next to him, catching Gideon off-guard and managing to push him, making the student fall to the now wet ground. Such was the force that he let his wand go, the ball of ice he managed to create turning into another puddle of water, and falling on his head. "Agh!" He let out a yelp, feeling the piercing coldness of the ice hit the top of his head, leaving no real wounds behind, but the cold temperature plus the blunt ball giving him a painful smack.
