Default Care of Magical Creatures Lesson ❧ 1

CARE OF MAGICAL CREATURES LESSON
in the Rose Garden


The day was drawing to another illustrious end upon L'Académie de Magie Beauxbâtons and Mathys had been here in the Rose Garden for at least an hour now setting up magical perimeters and prepping the area. Having always found the grounds enchanting at this hour, the Care of Magical Creatures professor found himself wishing to take a stroll over to the cliff side view with his watercolors, but instead found himself questioning these Hogwarts students' ability to perform Loricatus.

They would be needing it this evening.

Comfortable wicker couches that seated five were arranged in three neat rows facing the lavish walls of the castle. Mathys himself stood just beyond these with a palm-sized smooth stone nestled on top of his right hand while his left was tucked dutifully behind his back.

Remember to mind the rules of the Rose Garden as you make your way in and find your seats. Your professor can only guarantee you safe instruction on how to handle magical creatures - an infuriated headmistress was beyond his pay grade.
index de leçon
question one | what do you know about shape shifting and form phasing creatures?
question(s) two | what are the evolutionary advantages of shape/phase shifting?; how do you distinguish between a shape/phase shifting creature and one that is transfigured in form?
creature preparation | successfully perform Loricatus
creature preparation | additional tips & tricks...and the headmistress
gargoyles descent | defensive instructions & reactions
gargoyle chaos | sacré bleu, Hogwarts
class dismissed


OOC: Salutations and welcome to our first Care of Magical Creatures lesson together this term. Please keep in mind that while this is your (the RPers of SS) first lesson, IC your characters have been at Beauxbatons now for 2 months and have had numerous lessons with Professor de Nostredame.

Before posting, make sure you are familiar with the rules and regulations for the subject.

Class will officially begin in approximately 24 hours from the time of this post.

Those hidden behind the couches were not forgotten and a few of the gargoyles still in formation around their mistress turned their great heads to patrol all further movements with bestial distrust. Though, slowly, a few more broke ranks to initiate patrols around the area and further investigate these invaders - their master and mistress giving off different energies and confusing the beasts.

One stalked its way up to a boy with his arms in the air and pressed its pig-like snout against the boy's leg. Sniff...sniff..SNIIIIIIIIIIIIIFF. And then the gargoyle folded its great leathery wings against itself and flopped on to its side and then rolled on to its back, displaying its tummy for the boy with a certain expectation in mind while its serpent-like tail swished back and forth against the grass.

Olé! The gargoyle continued its charge forward towards the pair and was unable to stop and turn on a knut thanks to its weighty size. Barreling right passed the two as the one boy flung them both out of the way, the gargoyle dug its heels into the grass and dug deep skid marks there in an earnest attempt to stop itself before it went toppling into one of its mistress' rose bushes. Only the great beast's attempts warranted itself a somersault that sent it rolling right into the path of one of the bushes...and on to it. SQUISH. Legs in the air, the gargoyle was now more preoccupied with trying to escape the rose bush that was whacking and striking at it with its thorns and leaves.

The other that had been charging at the menacing little blonde suddenly came to a skid and a stop when another boy, defenseless, stood in front of her. Snarling and shaking some grass and dirt off from between its toes, the gargoyle paced in front of the pair and sniff...sniff...sniiiiiiiiiffed the air before letting out a deep rumble from its throat. Was the gargoyle...purring?

Did she care her gargoyles were like to make a meal of these children? No. Not even a little. All Giselle cared about was the absolute and utter disrespect she saw here today--and among First Years no less.

One had roasted her roses. Another (Bernadette) had the AUDACITY to raise her wand at her, followed by another (SneakyServerusSnape) and one (TakemetotheBurrow) went as far as to SOAK HER. Oh, yes, the woman was in quite the fit now.

Even worse, in all this chaos they were 1000% more likely to damage her roses. It was a scene from hell. There was no time (yet, YET. It would happen, just not YET) to explode on the wayward children.

"STOP! Stop all of you!" No more wands firing--as if they hadn't JUST heard to lower them. No more idiotic behaviour that put them more at risk. She looked to her gargoyles, clapping her hands firmly to get their attention. "Enough, zhat is enough, mes chers." Before she had to end up shutting this entire garden down for renovations once more. Not again. Not a second time.

Forget Malachi. The man seemed incapable of containing his own brood. She would handle them herself.

Tina remained crouched behind the wicker couch. She needed a plan, but what? The gargoyles' scales were resistant to magic. Wait, that was it! They were resistant to spells, but she wasn't. Maybe she could camouflage herself with a disillusionment charm? Could the gargoyles see through the spell? Come to think of it, would anyone notice if she snuck out of the garden while disillusioned? Desmarais did say she wanted them out, and Tina was only too happy to oblige.

Desmarais… Tina's anger at the woman were approaching Malachi Trent levels (as in the level of anger she normally reserved for only the Hogwarts headmaster, not a level akin to that which the man himself demonstrated). If she hadn't barged in screeching like a harpy… If she hadn't grabbed that girl, none of this would've happened! And those first years… what did they think was going to happen if they raised their wands at her?! Pure idiotic behavior on all sides! Still, as completely childish as Headmistress Diaper-baby Desmarais was acting, Tina agreed with her on one thing. How did de Nostredame think this was a good idea?! He worked with her, for Merlin's sake; he should've known she'd react this way!

Tina was jerked out of her thoughts by a nearby presence. She looked up and saw some of the gargoyles patrolling the area. She remained motionless, mentally kicking herself for not guessing that gargoyles would be the subject of the lesson. How could she have forgotten? She saw them every day at this school for four years! Suddenly she remembered she had the one thing her classmates didn't: a history at Beauxbatons. Maybe she could use it to her advantage!

Tina looked at the nearest gargoyle. "Bonsoir,"she said, cautiously offering a hand for it to sniff. "Remember me? I used to go to school here." She reiterated the question in French, "Souvenez-vous de moi?" Did that work? Would the gargoyle remember her? What if it didn't? What if it attacked? Her mind was buzzing with possible scenarios!

Tina's eyes darted from the gargoyle to Desmarais as the latter spoke, and she got an idea! If she couldn't pacify the gargoyles, maybe she could try to pacify Desmarais. She wasn't going to try standing up to her full height yet, lest she agitate any nearby gargoyles with sudden movements, but she did poke her head out of her hiding place to look at the headmistress. "Madame Desmarais," she said with a respectful bow of her head, momentarily putting aside her fear and disdain, "may I please dry you off?" Just in case the headmistress doubted her skills, she assured her, "I'm proficient at wandwork; I was well-trained by two of France's finest charms masters." She said all of this in perfect and eloquent French.

See, gargoyles? She wasn't a threat. No wand, no shouting… just talking.

Oh Merlin. The child. She was clinging.

Well, Kaiser supposed he would allow it, given the, uh, situation. What was that she was saying though? He could barely make it out over the chaos, but he thought she'd said something about protecting him. Right. He was absolutely going to take shelter behind a first year. Sure.

All of this was just a series of fleeting thoughts, however, because the probably-a-gargoyle was Kaiser's main concern. He'd got them both out of the way, at least, and now only watched as the creature skidded past them and... straight into the rose bushes.

... Okay, so, just so everyone (Desmarais especially) was clear, that wasn't his fault. Also, the roses may have been a bit squished, but they were still okay enough to fight back. So... no need to fret.

"It's okay," Kaiser said to Summers, still with his eyes on the hefty creature that was getting pummelled into submission by a plant. "It is, uh... distracted." For now, at least. And Desmarais seemed to be calling them all off, too, so... maybe that was the end of it. Remembering the earlier instruction to drop their wands, Kaiser quickly stowed his away. No threats here.

But, uh... maybe he wouldn't send Summers away to face the Desmarais-inspired-music just yet though. The kid had just doused her with water, and Kaiser had a feeling she wasn't just going to let that one slide. Maybe it was possible to sneak her away amongst the rose bushes while everyone was distracted. You know, let the woman calm down a bit. Kaiser scanned his surroundings, weighing up the options.

Claudine did not have time to even think about if the other students had dropped their wands as she was still trying to escape from the insane Headmistress. “You wait until Headmaster Trent hears about you manhandling one of his students! Let go of me!’’ It was probably a good thing that her Hungarian Horntail heartstring-core wand was still somewhere on the ground. She wanted to ZAP! the Headmistress herself. If she couldn’t do that, she’d stamp on the woman’s feet. Yes. That was perfect. Claudine was going to give the lunatic three seconds to release her…

ONE…

TWO…

THREE…


The first year lifted her right foot, ready to do as planned. A girl had to dream how that scenario played out because the moment the HeadCrazyLady commanded that they stop, she froze. At least those beastly gargoyles were being called off and Bernie would be okay. Slowly, Claudine lowered her foot. Perhaps this outcome had saved her from being shown a month’s worth of detention or something along the same line had she stomped on the woman's foot.

‘Stop’ also meant that Crazy Lady would stop manhandling her. Yes?

Chaos. This was pure and utter CHAOS.

And he did NOT like it.

In fact, it reminded him all too much of that one Defence lesson the previous term. The one with the creatures who came after you if you made a sound. They were two very different creatures but he was still applying the same methods as he had done then. You know, minus the whimpering.

Something he was noticing? The first years were NOT to be messed with. They were not afraid to shout at anyone they needed to shout at - looking at you, Bernadette and the Slytherin one that started all of this - which only made his eyes widen and that internal scream to intensify.

Speaking of, when Bernadette was free from the gargoyle, Lucas immediately turned to her, instead. It was better than looking at everything else that was going on. "Pssst, Bernadette? Are you okay?" She wasn’t hurt, was she-

..........

................

Oh no. Oh no oh no oh no.

That internal screaming? That had now turned into a full on shriek.

Lucas slowly turned his head away from the first year and looked down at the source of the sudden coldness against his leg. He had. A gargoyle. There was a gargoyle rubbing its pig snout on his leg. And it was sniffing him? WHAT FOR?! WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR, GARGOYLE?

SEND HELP???

Every part of him stood stock still but he did manage to let out a small whimper. Did it matter who heard? Not at all. All he could think about was how much he’d rather be ANYWHERE but here. Even an overcrowded common room sounded like a better idea than-

Oh. It was moving. It was on its side? And then its back??

Uh????

If he hadn’t seen the tail waggling back and forth, he would’ve thought that it was dead. That the gargoyle had DIED because of how he smelt.

But as it were, Lucas stared as it...... lay there, waggling its tail like a dog. In fact, all of it seemed like a dog that just wanted pets for being a good boy. It was safe to say that this Gryffindor was thoroughly confused. Did they act like this? Were they pets? Why weren’t they just leaving??

Before he could stop himself, he bent down and started, uh, scratching the gargoyle’s tummy. Or trying to, what with that Loricatus spell still on him.

This was the weirdest thing he had ever done.

Oh, the gargoyle was like a PUPPY at heart, wasn't it? Phoebe let go of her HEROIC HERO (Cole) and immediately tried to inch around him to where the beast was laying on his back and... purring? So maybe more like a kitten.

"Can I pet him, please? Professor?" Maybe it was all mayhem and disaster and the Headmistress was telling them to STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE, but this was Care of Magical Creatures. And this was a creature who desperately needed her care in the form of belly scritchy scratches.

OH. MY. MERLIN.

Chaos had completely overtaken the class. Nettie had barely even had time to register the fact that one of the rosebushes that the Headmistresses was apparently VERY attached to had completely burst in to flames - because the next second, FLYING THINGS were attacking the first years and breaking wands and WHAT. DID. SHE. DO!? As a prefect, she had to do...something! But where did she even start?

This lesson had all been too much for Nettie. She had NOT signed up for verbal abuse from Beauxbatons professors, and she certainly had not signed up for gargoyles attacking them for absolutely no reason!

"Everyone please stop attacking them! Like the Professor said, it'll only make them angry!" she called out, although her efforts didn't seem to yield any results whatsoever. A few moments later, though, things started to calm down just a bit - the one gargoyle was now laying on its back, acting like a puppy who wanted a belly rub, and another was struggling nearby to get out of a rose bush that was currently attacking it. Despite the fact that the gargoyles had been out for blood a few seconds earlier, Nettie couldn't sit there and let it keep getting attacked by the bushes!

She wasn't about to risk another point loss by using her wand, and since she'd cast that handy protection spell earlier, getting the gargoyle out of the bush as it continued to thrash shouldn't be THAT difficult. She bent down and reached down to the gargoyle, ignoring the flying branches and taking care to keep her face away from any thorns. "Come here, boy! Come here, I'll help you out!" she cried out to it.

"Maybe we can play dead. Or run. Please don't get horribly disfigured on my account. I can't live with the guilt." All of that was said in one breath, and she tugged gently on his arm to encourage the running plan.
Cole was eyeing the oncoming flying gargoyle bird when felt how Phoebe latched onto his arm like he was a life buoy in a rough sea. Maybe they should tail it out there though, it seemed like a very good plan right about now. With Phoebe gently tugging on his arm Cole started to move backwards not being able to take his eyes from the incoming creature. Oh dear why did he so far this year always seem to end up in situations of drama? First the throwing up at the feast, then he quacked like a duck and now he was trying to save a girl from being bird food. Stealing a glance in Phoebe's direction he agreed in a shout "Let's run for cover Phoebe!"

SPOILER!!: Creepy purring gargoyle + Phoebe

Before Cole and Phoebe had managed to flee a safe distance away, the incoming bird skidded to stop in front of them snarling, sniffing the air and then letting out a deeeeeeeeeep rumble from it's throat. It amazedly sounded like the big gargoyle was actually as miraculous as it may seem was purring like a better house cat. Astounded Cole felt how Phoebe was trying to inch around him to get a better look at the bird which made him latch on harder to her arm but he wasn't ungentle. Looking over at her he shook his head vigorously as Cole cautioned. "That's a very bad idea Phoebe. Don't go any closer, for all you know the bird can be purring to lure you closer before it attacks. I don't want you to get disfigured either. Please stay behind me Phoebe..." It felt like the right place to say the words back that she had thrown at him earlier.

"Oh!" The first year gasped as the gargoyle that had been coming after them skidded right into the rose bushes, causing additional damage to the headmistress's garden. THAT was NOT GOOD! PLUS there was the fact that she hoped the gargoyle hadn't been hurt, though its hefty body could SURELY take on some bushes. The thorns, though...would THEY hurt it? She hoped not. Just LOOK at the other ones. They were...just like dogs. They COULD be mean, but they ALSO wanted to be loved. They were like Slytherins! Awww!

Speaking of Slytherins...

"I think it'll be okay now," She offered quietly, noting that Phoebe was trying to pet one of the creatures now. She wasn't sure that was even allowed, but under different circumstances, she really would've wanted to try, TOO. "You think I'll be expelled?" She looked up at Kaiser with big, worried eyes and chewed her lip. "I really was only trying to help." And now the headmistress HATED them, she'd gone and disappointed a professor she ACTUALLY liked and their OWN headmaster was going to be SO, SO, SO angry with her.

This. was. the. END.

the sky is always there for me ☀ ☁ heavy hearts like heavy clouds

Mathys did not know where to begin. First there was the fact that he had not anticipated a need to further explain what the word defenseless meant, but Mademoiselle James was not exemplifying it and nearly paid the price. He could not tell just which gargoyle it was that had taken a tumble in the rose bush either, but at least there was no need for concern there as their hides were durable and anything the rose bush attempted would barely leave even a scratch. The rose bushes were likely to do more damage to themselves in the process. He did take note of Mademoiselle Gladin making an effort, so at least she was making herself useful rather than sulking over spilled milk. Ce qui est fait est fait, oui?

Scuffing up his Hebridean Black boots as he hurried about the rose garden, bopping a gargoyle sharply on the nose here and there, he almost found himself feeling sorry for the Hogwarts headmaster. Not just because the foreign press had seemed more accurate than previously thought in its portrayal of its students, but for the storm that was about to be brought right to his doorstep.

He knew his headmistress and he knew to what lengths she would seek retribution. Detention would have been too optimistic a prospect.

His posture stiffened a bit hearing Mademoiselle Dantes, and while her intentions were (hopefully) good ... it was simply not the time nor the place to attempt brown nosing with his headmistress. Especially in the context of having another student wand pointed at her. "Not now, Mademoiselle Dantes," he warned in a sharp whisper while shaking his head. With a swift curl of his fingers and fluid backhanded wave, the man conjured a luxury towel in her favorite color and scent, passing it off to her in the next stride.

Mademoiselle Blaze was doing absolutely nothing to help her situation, not a single thing, and he was about to take drastic action when he saw her foot lift. Though soon Mademoiselle James was asking him about...petting the gargoyles?

Taken aback by the request, it was only then that he noticed Monsieur Dakest was giving a belly rub to ... Hibosqu, if he was not mistaken. There was only the briefest wave of relief to wash over him as he offered the first year an encouraging nod. "Oui, you may." His eyes narrowed on Monsieur Vance. "Gargoyles are not deceitful beasts. Zey would do no such thing."

Before they were all dispelled from this garden. As much as he would have wanted to continue his lesson and perform the task he had gathered them here to do, he knew it was a lost cause for tonight. There was no way they would be able to continue and it weighed his chest in lament.

Sighing, Mathys patted the head of another of the gargoyles as he made his way around the garden. Kneeling here and there, he began collecting the discarded wands he happened upon. "You will each get your wands back once we are back inside ze castle," he assured them, though he expected there to be protests from some.

"I don't want your wand anywhere NEAR me." Giselle was very clear in response to the girl's (Tina) offer. It was unfortunate timing for the girl. The woman just had First Years pointing their wands at her--THE HEIGHT of disrespect, and didn't fancy having anymore students doing it. For all she knew, the girl was likely to give her a second dousing. This lot was unruly. Unruly, insubordinate, raucous, the list could go on and on. Instead, she muttered a grudging "merci" to Mathys as she took the towel he offered.

She would get herself dry, thank you very much.

At this point, the Headmistress did release the Slytherin (Claudine). Not because of her threat, but so she could get dry. The threat earned her nothing more than, "Headmaster Trent will be fully briefed on zhis situation. He will know what rotten children you 'ave been and I will 'ave somesing done about it." Rest assured about THAT.

Once fully dry, she looked to Mathys. "I want zhem out, now. Not in five minutez, not in 5 secondz. NOW. Out. Out. Out." Enough of this.

"You four!" She looked to each trouble maker in turn. (Cecelia, Bernadette, Claudine, Analiese). "You will report to ze Inquisitorial Hall wis me, now. Headmaster Trent will meet us zhere. I'll show you what happenz when you forget your place."

And with that, she turned and started out of the garden. She knew all their faces. If they didn't come along willingly, it would only go far worse for them.

Bernadette was fine, she was FINE, not a scratch on her. She was more worried about her wand than anything, but it was tucked under her bum and she was NOT giving it away to ANYONE, professors included. "I'M FINE," she shouted across to Lucas, finally peeking between her hands to see if HE was okay too.

Oh, he looked like he was being sniffed by a FRIENDLY dogbird. They came in friendly?! Why couldn't she have gotten a friendly one? Bernie only got the DEVILBIRD. Not fair!! Bernie slowly pulled her hands down from her eyes to watch the chaos coming to a slow end in front of her. She remained stationary as the rest of her friends and classmates teamed up and were okay, after all. Phoebe didn't get attacked, Claudine was being LET GO finally, and Cece... oh thank goodness, Cece hadn't been mauled!

"Whewwwww," Bernie sighed, deciding she could stand up and cradle her wand properly now. Now that she wasn't all panicked, she could see that it was in poor condition. It was... it was splintered! She couldn't even hold it right because of the MAHOGANY damage!

The sight of her wand was making Bernie tear up a little, honestly. She had really, really, REALLY liked her wand. It has been beautiful, and perfect, and made JUST FOR HER. And now it was injured?! "I need a wand doctor," the first year mumbled pathetically, not even CARING that she was in trouble with the Headmaster AND the Headmistress AND the Creature Professor AND whomever else. She trodged over to her bag and slung it on her shoulder, careful not to nick the wand in her hand, and solemnly began the trek up to the castle behind the Headmistress.

Honestly, she wasn't quite worried about her getting her wand back just then. No, she was worried about a) how the Hogwartians were going to survive this cranky pants of a Headmistress b) getting down from this couch without stepping on someone's wand. Luckily for her, Professor de Nostredame had solved the second problem. Unluckily for her, the Headmistress was plowing right on with making her anxiety about the first even worse. Every word only served to ratchet up Dalia's indignation further. They had been doing just fine until she'd shown up! Hopefully, Headmaster Trent would be far more reasonable than this. Not that she was about to say any of this out loud, mind. Her sense of self-preservation was strong enough to keep her mouth shut, lest she find her butt ushered to the Inquisitorial Hall too and possibly back to Cuba in shame.

Instead, she climbed down from her place on the couch and joined the queue going back into the castle.

They had been rotten? Claudine looked outraged as she straightened her robes after finally being free of the Crazy Lady’s claws. Naturally,the woman would be looking to paint a bad picture of the Hogwartians when all that had happened was an accident (at least on her end) while the others had tried to either help the Head Crazy or tried to help Claudine.

The Snakette looked around on the ground but did not see her wand and reasoned that the CoMC had it in his possession. When they reached the Castle, he had said, they would repossess their individual wands. She sighed, knowing that it would be futile trying to claim it from him now. She simply took her other belongings into her bag but for her sketchpad and hurried after Bernie and the French woman. “We’ll find someone who can get it fixed,’’ Claudine said in a low voice. She felt sorry for Bernie and her wand. Her mind wasn't even on what punishment that might await her. She didn't care.

Claudine held her head high as she marched back to the Castle.

Cecelia didn't even have time to get the reassurance from Kaiser that she so DESPERATELY needed because before she knew it, her wand was being collected by their professor and the headmistress was making it VERY clear that they were in NO way off the hook for what had just gone down in this rose garden. Not that she'd expected anything else. The woman was REAL dramatic, even more dramatic than when her dad had a bad hair day, and THAT was real drama. Her dad.. he-he was going to be SO disappointed in her. Mum, too. Cecelia would PROBABLY even go down in history as the youngest and only Gryffindor in HISTORY to ever SOAK a french headmistress in the middle of a rage attack and THAT wasn't exactly what she wanted to be known for.

SHE. WAS. DOOMED.

She WANTED to say that she NEVER forgot her place. She WANTED to ask Professor de Nostredame if he'd take care of her wand for her while she was being interrogated. She WANTED to do a lot of things in that moment, but instead she just offered Kaiser a very quiet, "It was nice knowing you," and moved to collect her things. Once she had, she reluctantly fell into line with the others as they followed the headmistress back to the castle.

Absolutely beside himself, Mathys gaze the rose garden a cursory glance over for any other wands that may have gone unnoticed during his initial sweep of the area. At least the gargoyles seemed to have calmed their raging spirits for now, some even making attempts to bond with the Hogwarts students. That had been part of his intention for the evening as well, before all hell broke loose.

"Zat will be all for ziss evening," he lamented to the class. "Please pack up your sings and return to ze castle. Do not wandair, ze gargoyles will know if you do and act accordingly. I would like your essays on evolutionary advantages handed to me by 3 pm one week from today."

As for the students he had asked to remain behind to speak with him, well, one was already trudging back inside. He would arrange for appointments with them at a later time unless they approached him now. Though it would be unwise for any to linger given his headmistress' very clear instructions.
OOC: That's all folks! Class dismissed. This thread will remain open for a bit to allow for any catch up and wrap up you may wish to do. Thank you so much for your participation and creative prowess!

Homework is a fun little IC addition and you are by no means obligated to do it - though if you are inspired and do and wish to RP your student handing it over to Mathys, by all means please do!

Analiese stood up from behind the couch where she was hiding. She watched Professor de Notresdame collect up all the wands that had been dropped to the floor. Hers was amongst them. When she had been hiding behind the couch, she dropped her wand to the floor as she didn't want more trouble. She was already going to be interrogated by Beauxbatons Headmistress Desmarais and Hogwarts Headmaster Trent. She gathered up her things and slung her book bag on her shoulder.

She got in line with the other students behind a younger Griffindor girl (Cecelia) who was also going to be interrogated. She followed them back into the castle and hoped Professor de Notresdame would look after her wand for now. She didn't want to buy another one.

Fiona quickly packed up her belongings and headed back towards the castle. The young witch had decided that Professor de Nostredame could inform her of her punishment because she didn't want to incur more of Headmistress Desmarais' wrath.

Tina thought her offer would get a thank you or a polite decline or even ignored entirely, anything except the reaction it got. De Nostredame telling her off was bad enough, but Desmarais… who did she THINK she was to talk to her that way when all she did was offer to help?! She kept her gaze fixed on the ground in front of her throughout the whole debacle so as not to accidentally lock eyes with either one of the Beauxbatons professors. If she had, they would've seen an angry fire blazing in her eyes that would've made the one that torched Desmarais's rosebush look like a dying ember. She was never going to forgive this! With that harsh reply, Giselle Desmarais just shot to the top of Tina's most hated people list, and once someone got on her bad side, there was no getting off of it. Only one person had ever done it, and it took that person actually dying to get Tina to change her mind.

Tina's teeth clenched. It was all she could do to keep from giving Desmarais a piece of her mind. Honestly, if she wanted to cause harm, wouldn't she have already done it? Why ask permission first? She was willing to bet all the money in her father's vault (which admittedly wasn't much, but that was beside the point) that she would've received a kinder reaction had she been wearing a pale blue Beauxbatons robe instead of the black Hogwarts one! Well, she supposed she should count herself lucky that her misguided act of kindness wasn't getting her hauled off to the Inquisitorial Hall with the younger students.

My apologies, Madame. It was my mistake, and it will not happen again, she wanted to say, were it not for the fact that Desmarais was already gone… that and she knew she couldn't muster a tone that would hide the sarcasm behind her words. By that statement, Tina really meant, This is the last time I try to be kind to you or anyone else in this stupid school! She should've known… no good deed goes unpunished. Every time she tried to do the right thing, it blew up in her face, so why bother? Fine, then! The next time she saw an opportunity to help someone, she wouldn't lift a finger. They were on their own.

So were they done here? Apparently so, as de Nostredame was dismissing class. Good! It was only a matter of time before her anger boiled over, and when that happened, she needed to be as far away from the Beauxbatons professors - or any people, for that matter - as possible! She quickly gathered her things and stalked out of the garden without so much as a look back.

Professor de Nostredame actually encouraged Phoebe to pet the gargoyle bird on the head. Cole was amazed, but also sceptical. He believed that the CoMC professor wasn't lying it was just that so far the gargoyles hadn't exactly showed to them that they weren't deceitful creatures who could attack to hurt. Cole returned the professor's gaze with a downcast glance as he explained quietly. "I meant no disrespect Professor de Nostredame. I was just looking out for Phoebe's well-being. When the gargoyles arrived they didn't give off kind and petable vibes, rather more menacing ones and we've been taught to be vigilant by Headmaster Trent, so i was just trying to look out for my younger housemate so she wouldn't get hurt."

Minutes later the lesson was ended and they we're given homework. Cole groaned inwardly. He really disliked writing essays. At least he had a week to complete it. Packing up his things he followed everyone else back up to the castle. If he made it quick he could drop his backpack in the common room before dinner.

Mathys half wondered if he would be receiving enraged letters from Hogwarts parents once the word spread about what happened here, though he let the thought pass almost as soon as it had come. If they came, they came, and he would field their concerns professionally.

His head turned to offer Monsieur Vance his attention, though the boy's words did very little to reassure the man and his frustrations. He was willing to acknowledge that Monsieur Vance had followed instructions and dropped his wand as instructed without question and was not one of the more troublesome units in this fray, so that counted for something. "Nor did your peers create a hospitable environment by pointing wands at my headmistress," he replied coolly.

The situation would have been vastly different had there been no wands pointed. In fact, it was very likely that his headmistress would have been in and out without much fuss and they would all be tending to the gargoyles. Perhaps even be granted the unique gargoyle-eye view flying tour of the grounds.

His hand full of wands, the professor waited until the last student departed the garden and then gave an sharp whistle to instruct the gargoyles to return to their perches.

His chest heavy with unrest, Mathys took up the rear with his long strides to follow all back to the castle, return wands to their owners...save for those destined for he Inquisitorial Hall. Those he would return personally.
