*upon leaving the Great Hall this morning, students will observe a white line glowing in the floor, with the word Transfiguration hovering in the air above it: a subtle hint that the class is this way*


*the line having led each class in turn to a wide, pillared room in Ravenclaw Tower, they are given time to disport themselves among the desks -- and then a dark figure drops from a crevice high in the arched ceiling, landing as lightly on the raised dais as though he weighed nothing at all, a wand clenched in his right hand and his left raised for balance and drama*

*straightening, he rakes his eyes over the assembly, letting silence fall where it will and finally addressing his students in a deep, rolling voice*

..Who here was present when the Dark wizards known as Death Eaters were able to invade this school?

In a world where nothing is sacred, only skill and courage will prevail. It is my job to make sure that you are able to access those traits. In today's class, you will study and complete three Transfigurations which are, right now, above your level. If you do not think that you can do that... today, you will learn to know better.

Open your books to page 523.... and begin.


[[First class, w000t! Students will be Transfiguring objects along these lines:
First-years: inanimate objects -- matches into needles, etc
Second-years: animate>inanimate -- beetles into buttons, etc
Third-years: more complex objects -- teapots into tortoises, etc
Fourth-years: cross-species switches -- fish into fowl, etc
Fifth-years: inanimate>animate -- stones into hounds, etc; multiplying and vanishing objects
Sixth-years: applying all of the above to human Transfiguration
Seventh-years: bringing inanimate objects to life or conjuring them out of thin air; later in the year, some self-Transfiguration -- growing wings, etc; immensely difficult and possibly only theory, although Zangetsu will push the students as far as they can go

..Hmph, it looks like the HPL has finally kicked the bucket. *headdesk* At least the cached page on Transfiguration is still there.]]

*She looks around the silent classroom, raising her hand among a number of few others who were at the ball during the Death Eater attack. Listen attentively, amazed by how their Professor sounds wise*

*continuing* Consider the attack -- a breach of the trust placed in the safety of this place. What methods did the enemy use? What forms of Transfiguration might have been useful against them?

*Looks at the glowing line for a couple minutes, and smiles* Now that's smart. *Walks slowly to the classroom, not minding being late at all. She comes in halfway through the teacher's opening lecture and sits down somewhere near the back*

..*fixing her with a stare* You will find the topic of this discussion on Page 524.

*Seeing him stare at her, Rikku quickly reached into her bag and took out her book. She flipped to the right page and fixed her gaze on it, softly humming a song to herself as she read*

*ignores the song, allows her to find the place before tossing out a question to the crowd at large*

If you had the time for one Transfiguration while those around you were being attacked, which would it be?

*glances up from his note taking with a very slight smirk*
Perhaps because the notes, much like merely reading a book teaches merely the theory... Where as to learning the practical and actual application is more what should be learned.

Not trivializing the theory of course, but theory is nothing if you can't actually cast the spells... Am I correct? *curious*

Correct... in part.

*takes a half-step sideways, his movements deceptively slow*

You have all covered minor forms of human Transfiguration in your sixth year. Out of those skills, what is the first method you would use to attack another wizard?


[[*half inclined to try a one-thread-per-year format next time.... what do you think?*]]

*glances up when Zangetsu inquires, pausing before speaking aloud* ...It would depend on whether one was already engaged in battle with them. If guarding, one might transfigure themselves into a solid object to defend; but if attacking from close range, they could try a partial animal transfiguration into an offensive beast in order to disable the wizard. At long range, a similar effect could be achieved if one can transfigure their head into that of a dragon's; permitting them to breathe fire at the opponent, and if planning to elude the wizard, theoretically, one could transfigure a pair of wings to increase their mobility. *he ceased speaking for a moment before continuing* ...That is...assuming the person had the skill to perform those tasks quickly and efficiently.

[ooc: Yes, maybe? XD That would work nicely. Also! I put up a link to the Harry Potter wiki after seeing your comment, so I hope that helps! ...And I have no idea whether his answer is even vaguely right or not. 8D;; *flails* And I'm really going to stop editing this. >_>;;]

*is silent for a moment -- look at that, you've actually impressed him*

*nods, taking new note of this intense young man* And that assumption is crucial to your success.... *peers at him* As you are now, are those tasks within your skill?


[[Yosh! ^^ And yeah, that'll be a great help! Lol, it's a really subjective question. XD]]

*The black haired boy hadn't seemed terribly impressed with the Professor's grand entrance... and in fact may just have been asleep until the professor actually started to talk*

Human transfiguration, nice. *He said after lazily scanning the readings mentioned by the prof, giving a small smirk at the thought of turning his book-loving dorm-mate into something...* We going to be using our classmates for this stuff?
