*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.]]
