Default DADA Lesson 2 - TRrRRRooOOLLLllLLl in the DuuuNGeons

It's not quite as early a lesson as you'd usually have with the Headmaster but it's before lunch. Hopefully that breakfast fuel hasn't worn off by now because with two hours to go--one of them to be spent here--Trent will be expecting you all at your best. Did you refresh yourself on the rules? Do you have anything ELSE that's gone wrong around the castle you feel he NEEDS to know about? Feel free not to wait til he's back and comfy in his office. No really, better to rip the bandaid off now.

Approaching the door to classroom 104, you'll notice a note that says the location of today's lesson has been changed to the dueling arena. Pick up your step, this notice doesn't make being late suddenly acceptable.

Over in the dueling arena, Malachi stands before a table stacked with clubs. Over and over he counts them, SURE he'd had enough but now there seemed to be at least three missing.

Circe sake. Was there anything not missing???

He appears only slightly agitated as you make your way into the room but will stop to greet you should you remember your manners and greet him first. This far into the term, he's already explained that while he isn't Scrimgeour, he does expect some form of acknowledgement when coming to his lesson.

The dueling arena is bare. All the dummies have been moved to the spare room leaving only the carpet beneath them and this table filled with clubs. Did you do the necessary readings? Have you practiced the spells for homework? They'd come in handy today.


OOC: Welcome back to Defense Against the Dark Arts!! Don't forget to read the classroom rules before posting. I'll have the first question up in 24 hours

The lesson hasn't started yet.


CLASS HAS BEGUN!

LISTEN it's pronounce 'jif' pineapples BELONG on pizza milk comes BEFORE cereal & also it's "CHarrie". amen.

Listen, Zoryn Spinnet was just as surprised as anyone when she found out she had been the first to arrive. Honestly, the Gryffindor almost made her poster wait another five hours before allowing her to make her entrance because she was THAT distraught. Unfortunately (and following a similar theme to many situations this term), the seventh year did not get her way and thus, here she was. Early.

Worst day of her life, truly.

The Gryffindor made her way into the dueling arena, absolutely NOTshocked by the unusual set-up of the room. She had been desensitized. Only took six and a half terms to do it. Walking past the Headmaster and taking notice of the clubs on the table, the Gryffindor almost sighed. "No dragons today, I reckon," her days here were numbered and the chances of learning about dragons were now slim to none. But the meme must live on, yeah?

Daisy was thankful that she had left for class a bit earlier than usual because she had spotted the sign on the door of Classroom 104 outlining the change of location. She quickly made her way to the Duelling Arena and as she entered the room, she saw the agitated look on Headmaster Trent's face.

"Good morning, Headmaster." Daisy greeted with a smile and polite nod of her head.

She had read the necessary text but with the way her mind was at the present moment, she was nervous about how she was going to go in this lesson.

She rushed to the duelling area, losing her way twice before reached the destination. Panting, she came in and wished the Headmaster :'Good..morning..head..master..'.

Despite it not being the first lesson of the day, Dorian walked to the dueling arena after seeing the notice while concealing a yawn behind his hand. He had went to bed late in the night for he had been reading his Transfiguration textbook. He wanted ace those OWL exams and was already studying. The downside was that he was a bit less focused during the day.

Standing in front of the doorway, Dorian jogged on the spot for a couple of seconds to wake up more before he entered after Kaira who seemed to be in a rush. Heh, first years.

"Good day, Headmaster" he greeted politely while trying his best to show that he wasn't tired. "Sup, everyone" he greeted the few others already present in the room as well.

Well. Having gone to the usual classroom and seen the note, Hanna did a turn around and headed to the duelling arena. It was certainly a skill she needed practice on, was duelling. But the club's... well she wasn't so sure about them. Some sort of troll Quidditch duel?

"Hello Headmaster," she greeted the man, in a cheery tone. Yes, this Ravenclaw was excited to get to the lesson.

Gah!! Class was moved and this was all the notice they were getting? Luckily he had a few minutes to spare, or else Jackson would be in trouble. He pivoted from 104's door and headed to the Duelling Arena instead, perhaps a little more of a rush. If he saw any students on their way, he would redirect them as well.

Aaand then he was there. Made it!! "Good morning, Headmaster! Er..." he paused, remembering what he had needed to bring up to the man. "The books in the study room all seem to be missing Sir, and there seem to be some pranks going around... like the Prefect bathroom... but I'm not sure who could be doing it..." Was it okay to tell him now since class hadn't started yet?? Jackson hoped so. He wished he could collect fingerprints and stuff like they did on those detective type shows, but they hadn't learned fingerprinting at Hogwarts yet.

Malachi walks into the dueling area and smiles slightly at the seemingly irked Headmaster. "Good morning headmaster, How has your day been?" Usually Malachi wouldn’t go out of his way to ask the professors or in this case the headmaster personal question but the headmaster seemed like he needed a small pick me up.

Honestly, it was a good thing Vita was early for nearly everything, because she'd needed the extra time to make her way to the dueling arena, wondering if whatever had been messing about around this school had messed with the classroom, too.

The clubs were an interesting sight to see and the sixth year eyed them curiously before her gaze shifted towards the man in charge. "Hello Headmaster." She kept it short and sweet, noting he didn't look like he was in the best of moods, and moved to take her place by the others in the room.

Patrick had come around the corner ready to enter room 104 when he saw the note. "Are you kidding me? Dude!" With a heavy sigh and a rub to his shoulder that would not stop itching he ran down the halls to the dueling room. He was on time, for him that meant late. He skirted around the corner feeling like a cartoon character.

Just as he came to a stop he saw that there were others in the room. He stopped just outside of the door looking at his watch. He had quite a few minutes to spare before he absolutely needed to be in there. He gave himself a few seconds to catch his breath before he moved through the door.

He moved further into the room, "uh, goood morning Headmaster? It's still morning I guess." he stated more for his own thoughts than for the Headmaster. He really wanted today to be a good morning he did not need today's class to be bad.

Well. Abra was certainly glad that he wasn't running on his 'get to class at the very last minute' schedule, or this could have been a disaster. Upon seeing the notice on the door of the usual classroom, he headed for the duelling arena, picking up the pace slightly as he did so.

"Good morning, Headmaster Trent," Abra greeted the headmaster almost automatically, it was so ingrained in him to do so. But he couldn't help on picking up on some agitated vibes from the man, which naturally made his own anxiety spike just a little bit, but he still managed a slightly strained, though still friendly smile before he found a space and waited for the lesson to begin.

The mysterious disappearances being the only thing that’s put Stasya anywhere close to feeling different than her usual self, the notice on the door of the DADA classroom hadn’t disturbed her one bit. Especially since she knew she was perfectly aware of where she was headed and how long it took to get there, she wasn’t too concerned about being late. If anything, she was simply curious what they needed the extra space for, when it was obvious the limitations of the classrooms weren’t immune to charms being placed to provide whatever was needed. Or maybe the events of the term so far were exactly why they needed something besides charms and spells to enlarge the classroom. It was worth the thought, anyway.

“Good morning, Headmaster Trent,” she greeted, giving the headmaster a smile that gradually grew a bit concerned at his expression. “Has something else disappeared?” Aside from the couch in the Gryffindor common room, the portrait entrance to the kitchens and all sorts of others she knew about by now. The question of if it was going to affect lessons was important too.

With his backpack stuffed with two granola bars (because he was a growing boy and brought them back with him from holidays), Chase headed to classroom 104 to only find that class was not going to be held there. He sighed and glanced down at his feet momentarily wondering if the classroom had disappeared as well just like everything else. He picked up his pace as he headed for their new destination. The dueling arena.

Though speaking of Hogwarts --- what was going on and where did these mutants come from?

Part of him thought that he shouldn't question it anymore. He had attended the school for five years at the point so honestly nothing should have probably surprised him. Just when he thought he was going to have a normal year, BAM something happened and his plan was derailed.

Fortunately the Dueling Arena was still here. Phew. No need to sound the alarms. Everything was in order....maybe? He entered the arena and greeted his Headmaster very politely. He still found it odd not seeing Scrimmy glaring at you as you entered the room. Scrim the Grim. Merlin. He should have kept a list with all those nicknames that he came up with for him. "Good morning, Headmaster," he greeted with a curt nod.

Head Girl in the hoooooouse. Chloe bounced into the classroom and gave the Headmaster a cheery wave. Totally respectful wave, but still a wave. The dueling arena was chilly on this winter morning, but it was obvious they'd be warming up quickly.

"Good morning to you, sir. I hope you're well today." And yes, she was ready with her homework spells.

Valencia headed to class. She opted to keep her robes because of the cold. But she was prepared! She had done the reading, as she always did, much unlike how her parents were when they were in school.

Having read the notice, she knew that class wasn't taking place in the normal location. So, she headed straight there.

"Hello Professor." she greeted as she made her way in.

Yeah I broke that mirror, so what? ll NOT backward ll Official Gryfferin ll Lemon's favourite

It was official and counting a million more times wouldn't change anything. There were three clubs missing and it would drive the man wild for the entirety of the lesson--until one of the students inevitably distracted him with some questionable response.

You never really knew with them these days.

Spinnet?

The man was so caught up in this last round of counting that he didn't notice at first but when he did, it required a double take to confirm that Zoryn Spinnet had been the first to walk into the dueling arena. Was she sick? Early because another portrait went up and she wanted to complain?

His hands slipped casually into his pockets as he took in her disappointed expression. Dragons. Every lesson? Did they really have to go through this every lesson?

Let no one ever say the young woman wasn't dedicated. "As I've mentioned countless other times, dragons aren't 'til April." And his answer wouldn't change no matter how many times she asked.

"Good morning, Swann." He allowed his attention to drift from the Gryffindor to the second student to enter the room. The former Hufflepuff Prefect. He gave her an extra little look, as if his naked eyes would be able to see anything beyond the surface.

"I trust the visit to the Healer has gotten you on the right track." But he wouldn't say more. Despite Spinnet being the only other one around at the moment, this seemed like a private matter and he wouldn't change the nature of that.

"Take a minute, there's still time before we begin and I need your lungs in fine, working order by then." There would be quite a ...hands on activity today.

Ah the diligent Ravenclaw. Malachi admired the work ethic on this one and the way he took the lessons seriously. His conduct wasn't anything to scoff at either. Definitely one to look out for. "Good day to you too, Katharos."

The Headmaster leaned against the table, his back to the clubs for now. Looking at them would only remind him of the missing ones and with students beginning to arrive, he really did need to get focused.

SPOILER!!: Hanna

Oh, a chipper one. Those weren't exactly the norm around here. The man could never understand the root of many of their dislike for the subject. It could be worse, it could be far worse. The cheerful tone got a smile out of the man. "Morning Newton. Do you show up to all your lessons in such a spritely mood?" He teased lightly, meaning no offense of course.

He also wouldn't have hated if she said it was JUST Defense Against the Dark Arts but really it was all the same to him.

Still, it made things easier when the students were looking forward to the lesson.

And another one that seemed to be in a hurry to get here. Was it the sudden change of location? Was that what was throwing them off? Perhaps he'd give sooner notice next time......nahhhhhhh. To borrow the ideology of apparently the last few Defense Professors, constant vigilance. They should always be showing up early enough to avoid disasters.

The smile Newton had managed to bring to the man's agitated state, quickly faded at the Prefect's words. "Circe sake, now they're taking books too? Did you happen to get a count of how many might be missing? Any witnesses?"

Did he really want to be dealing with this before the start of the lesson? Nope.

"Pretty...interesting, I'll say that much, Mitsue." With the additional knowledge of the missing books, the Headmaster was all the more put off than he'd been to find some of his clubs missing. What was happening around this place?? "But good morning all the same."

"Good morning, Mallari." The man replied, admittedly now half distracted with questions on how long the books had been missing from study hall and if there might have been anything else missing.

"You wouldn't happen to be missing anything, would you?"

If things were going missing, he was gonna need to start keeping a list. Sure would be helpful if any of these kids actually saw anything.

"It is still morning, yes. Good morning, Dooley." He wasn't sure what might have momentarily caused the boy to second guess such a fact but as he was now busy duplicating a few clubs to make up for the lost ones, he didn't give it much thought.

"Take more of those breaths if you need. We're in for a hectic class."

He was gonna love that.

"Good morning, Botros." Malachi greeted, setting down the last of the three clubs he'd duplicated. Now that there were technically no more missing, he was slightly less agitated. It could've been a full recovery were it not for the Ravenclaw Prefect informing him of more missing things around the castle.

"Good to see you aren't missing. Gotta be careful. Everything and its grandmother seems to be going missing these days." There was a pause as he re-called a report about the Gryffindor Common Room.

"Shot in the dark here, but did you lot ever find that sofa?" In an old classroom, out by the lake? Typical prank locations.

SPOILER!!: Stasya

If anything, she was simply curious what they needed the extra space for, when it was obvious the limitations of the classrooms weren’t immune to charms being placed to provide whatever was needed. Or maybe the events of the term so far were exactly why they needed something besides charms and spells to enlarge the classroom. It was worth the thought, anyway.

“Good morning, Headmaster Trent,” she greeted, giving the headmaster a smile that gradually grew a bit concerned at his expression. “Has something else disappeared?” Aside from the couch in the Gryffindor common room, the portrait entrance to the kitchens and all sorts of others she knew about by now. The question of if it was going to affect lessons was important too.


Ah the other Gryffindor Prefect. Maybe she could answer his question on the missing Gryffindor sofa. Not gonna lie, he'd harboured the thought that these missing things may have just been a bit of pranking by some rowdy Gryffindors until he heard they'd lost their sofa. Whoever was doing this was an equal opportunity prankster....which was problematic to say the least.

"Good morning, Dalgaard-Volkova. Keeping track of all your belongings I hope."

SPOILER!!: Chase

The dueling arena.

Though speaking of Hogwarts --- what was going on and where did these mutants come from?

Part of him thought that he shouldn't question it anymore. He had attended the school for five years at the point so honestly nothing should have probably surprised him. Just when he thought he was going to have a normal year, BAM something happened and his plan was derailed.

Fortunately the Dueling Arena was still here. Phew. No need to sound the alarms. Everything was in order....maybe? He entered the arena and greeted his Headmaster very politely. He still found it odd not seeing Scrimmy glaring at you as you entered the room. Scrim the Grim. Merlin. He should have kept a list with all those nicknames that he came up with for him. "Good morning, Headmaster," he greeted with a curt nod.


"Morning Spenley." He replied. Another Gryffindor. How ironic that the moment he asked about their missing sofa, a ton of them began pouring in. Good thing Malachi was a firm believer in consequences. Sometimes things just HAPPENED and there was no explanation. All the missing things were definitely not a coincidence and he wouldn't begin treating them as such but y'know, shower of Gryffindors was definitely up there on the list of coincidences.

SPOILER!!: Chloe

"Good morning to you, sir. I hope you're well today." And yes, she was ready with her homework spells.


"Good morning to you, too, Kettleburn." The man said, turning to the female head honcho. His look was one of concern because it seemed every time he saw her there was something making her itch and that made HIM itch. Weird how that worked. "I hope you're well today. How's that skin of yours treating you? Gonna need any soothing potions before we begin?" He could have a patronus sent up to the Hospital Wing. Once these kids had the clubs, he didn't need any wild swings being taken from sudden itch spasms.

SPOILER!!: Valencia

Having read the notice, she knew that class wasn't taking place in the normal location. So, she headed straight there.

"Hello Professor." she greeted as she made her way in.


The fact this one wore her robes didn't sway him in either direction. He'd said they wouldn't be needed because of the nature of the activity but it was an easy fix once they began. "Morning Phillips. Keeping everything on you so it doesn't go missing with half the castle?" And the tiniest crack of an amused smile.

The robe really wasn't needed.


Malachi glanced down at his watch, double checking it against the clock that hung above the door to the dueling arena. Yep, it was time to get started. With a flick of his wand, the door slammed shut with a click as it did every class when they were ready to begin. Like always, anyone who was late would have the hardest time getting in but by now most had learned that it was better to be on time.

"Let me start by saying I hope you all read the chapter I gave for homework and spent some quality time practising the spell. If you haven't, I hope you've got natural talent and an impeccable ability to run and hide and generally not get yourself maimed. I'll accept either." But REALLY he was hoping it was the first option. The second was very sketchy and didn't always offer up a guarantee.

The man liked guarantees when it came to the lives of the students he was set in charge of.

"Everyone, come up to the table and get yourself a club. While you're doing that, I'd like everyone to give me one scenario in which you would every need to use this muggle instrument. Doesn't necessarily have to be a need per say. You can also give me a scenario in which it could come in handy or could otherwise be convenient. Any reason at all to ever use a club."

The man stepped away from the table, giving them enough room to come grab the club of their choice. Even the three duplicated ones would be fine. They'd last well into the lesson and much longer than they were needed.


OOC: First question's up and class has officially started! If you post your character arriving after this point, it'll be very difficult for them to get through the door. Of course, you can always RP as if they've been here the entire time! I'll be back to move the lesson again in about 24 - 28 hrs from the point of this post. <3

Kaira smiled at the headmaster. It was obvious that he thought of her as lacking in time management.

'Thank you..professor..I'm alright..didn't know the class was going to be here,' she said.

Clubs? Well..they were clubs.'Oh..umm..if someone attacks you, you can hit them with it,' she said, grabbing a club.

'Umm..if there is a robber in your house and umm..you need to get him before he gets you..you can hit him on the head with a club..,' she said, remembering particularly memorable scenario of her sister hitting a robber who had broken into their house with a club. 'My sister has done it..,'she added, now feeling slightly stupid.

Well, at least the seams of her shirt were holding up well against the scratching. She really didn't need a hole in these sleeves, especially since IT started showing up. The 'it' being FUR. Fur that she wasn't supposed to have, since she is a human being, damn it! And she hadn't had time to journey to the hospital wing for it, as she'd, unfortunately, slept through her first couple of classes and woken up with only enough time for a quick shower and gathering of her supplies. Luckily, she'd done all that and made it here on time and so was here for the instructions.

Anyway, what could one use a club for....? "Some forms of law enforcement use them as weapons," she answered while she retrieved a club and sat down again. Actually, she was getting another idea. It seemed that along with the random fur patches came weird cravings. Like one for the wooden instrument in her hand. "Or, or, or we could eat them!" she exclaimed before attempting to do just that. Only, the second she bit into it, she ended up with splinters in both her gums and her tongue. And there was some bleeding....

"OW!"


Not a good idea.

Did he really want to be dealing with this before the start of the lesson? Nope.
“Sir… er… It was quite bare in there to be honest.” …It looked like it had been looted. Jackson went up to retrieve a club, and was completely taken aback when Archer was actually TAKING A BITE of her club. He blinked at her, trying to register what had just happened. “I’d wager that’s not how we’re using those today,” he added. “There are certain muggle sports that use them or a version of them… like cricket or golf.” Club now in hand, Jackson moved out of the way, taking care of the itch that had just developed on his back. “Or you can use it as a last resort backscratcher.”

"I trust the visit to the Healer has gotten you on the right track." But he wouldn't say more. Despite Spinnet being the only other one around at the moment, this seemed like a private matter and he wouldn't change the nature of that.
"It is early days, Headmaster considering but I'm getting there. Thank you so much for everything. I appreciate it." Daisy replied.

Not a good idea.
Daisy went and grabbed herself a club and that's when she saw fellow Hufflepuff, Archer bite into a club, Daisy's eyes widened in shocked disbelief. She then gave the Headmaster a bemused look. As for the question posed to the class, Daisy bit her lip in thought. What if she repeated an answer? She raised her hand slowly. "Maybe if someone is trapped inside a house that's on fire, then a type of club can be used by firefighters to gain access to the house."

Daisy quickly put her hand down after saying her answer, looking rather embarrassed.

Had he done his homework and practised the spell? Of course he had. Even with all the other homework, Dorian always made sure that his DADA homework was top priority because it was his worst subject out of all. Although he had improved, he was still lacking trust in himself when it came to this subject.

While he waited for class to start, Dorian could not help but overhear the conversation between Jackson and the Headmaster. Curious, the fifteen year old got a few steps closer to listen while pretending to be casually looking around. The books in the study room had vanished? Dorian frowned..... interesting.

Walking to the table, the Ravenclaw saw in the corner of his blue eyes that one of the Hufflepuffs was BITING one of the wooden clubs and he turned his head to stare at her before shaking his head in disbelief. Picking up one of the clubs from the table, he inspected it in his hands. "Perhaps you can defend yourself by blocking certain spells?...then again i guess you need to have very good accuracy to know where a spell is aimed at your body so ...." He scratched the top of his head, definitely unsure of his answer. "Nevermind..." Holding the club behind his back, he walked back to his previous spot

LISTEN it's pronounce 'jif' pineapples BELONG on pizza milk comes BEFORE cereal & also it's "CHarrie". amen.

Was the double take necessary? Look, no one was more surprised than Zoryn Spinnet, herself. But let’s make one thing clear, she was going to make sure that this never happened again. Showing up first made her look like an absolute nerd and that’s not something she wanted on her record. Rather be late and lose points than risk her reputation. Especially if the risk included getting tagged as a ‘teacher’s pet’ something she actively was not.

Which only made itself more and more evident, as she had not read the chapter assignment. Nor did she practice the spell, but after 6.2 years she was starting to get real good at improvising. So all was well…. Hopefully.

The Gryffindor wasted no time walking up to grab herself a club because HOLY COOL. She could kill a man with one of these… Worth trying to sneak away with one at the end of the lesson. As for the question, “could come in handy if you’ve ever gotta get someone to shut up the hard way, give ‘em a deserving whack in the head.” Just saying.

That’s what Zoryn would use it for.

Speaking of which, did that Hufflepuff girl (Archer) need a whack in the head to bring her to her senses? ‘Cause no offense, but what the hell? Zoryn would be HAPPY to offer her assistance. Pick her Professor!!! She’s got this!

She couldnt help the wince as the door slammed, honestly, she'd never get used to it. Was it REALLY needed? No... just needed to be over dramatic she supposed...

She went up and grabbed a club, "As mentioned before it could be good for wacking someone coming after you." Maybe the fifth year had contemplating trying it on her younger siblings when they refused to listen with the plastic one they had at home... "Perhaps if you don't know a spell to protect yourself or whoever it was managed to get your wand away from you?"

Though it might be silly, it was her best guess.

Vita absently rested her hand just below her neck, checking to see that her necklace was still safely tucked underneath her uniform and around her neck. With all the items that had gone missing, she was keeping the ones she held dear to her nice and close. As for the headmaster's question... "Nothing to report yet, Sir. Hoping it stays that way."

The sixth year didn't particularly like the idea of everyone having clubs in class, particularly because that Zoryn girl looked and sounded all too eager to use hers, but she picked one out of the bunch and observed it as those around her answered the question at hand. How could you put this...tool to use? Hm.

"I suppose you could use it to break into places, or out, depending. It'd be particularly useful for breaking glass. That's if you couldn't use your magic, though." If you had a wand instead, why wouldn't you just use that?

He nodded at the Headmaster's greeting, once again pleasantly surprised by how this new Headmaster was much different from Scrimmy. He had been half expecting to hear an earful about how he shouldn't speak unless spoken to but was glad when the Headmaster didn't. He watched a few other students pour into the classroom after him and then the lesson began.

Yes, Chase had done his homework and required reading. He had even read the chapter twice to better prepare himself for the lesson. His personal goals with OWLS looming over his head was to make sure that he was on top of his game when it came to studying. Though he hadn't been expecting the Headmaster to ask them to come up and select a club. Hmm... He wondered what the Headmaster would want them to do with it... Hopefully not swing and hit something... As the Headmaster asked for reasons on why they would need this muggle instrument, he paused and waited, listening to his peers' feedback. His jaw dropped when he saw a Hufflepuff girl bite the club. He blinked at her, utterly confused by her actions.

Was this the affect of Hufflepuff's not being able to go into the Kitchen? Would Hufflepuffs just start eating everything around them... Then again maybe that's why things were disappearing... He sorely doubted that his thought was factual but it was a fun fantasy to imagine. Heh.

Now back to the question at hand... Yes, you could hit things and people with it if you'd like too... He made a note not to upset Zoryn for fear of her swinging a club in the air and hitting him with a club. "If it was long enough, you could probably use it as a walking stick to help balance yourself. Or if it was wide enough, you could probably use like a hammer with enough force...?"

Yes, he was a little bit out there with the suggestions but maybe that'd work?
