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

__________________________

The Charms Annexe is a converted space on the third floor housed in one of the small towers. It is a round tower room which opens onto the Charms Corridor and stands opposite one of the smaller stairwells that leads up to the fourth floor.

With wide window sills, big enough to sit in, it is the perfect space to curl up with a textbook and study your charms. The round room itself is mostly empty, and has been set aside for practice purposes. Students are permitted to practice any charm they have learned in class during the term or from the Professor or an approved tutor. Duelling and fighting are NOT permitted in this space.

To the sides are shelves of books that contain information on charms for varying skill levels in the event you might like to try something new on your own. The only other thing in the room is a large chest towards the top left corner which contains any items that may be needed for charming purposes. The chest itself is locked, but can be opened with simple unlocking spells.

On the wall facing the door is a board that will occasionally have challenges on it for you to try your hand at while you work towards getting better as well as the names of those who've mastered previous challenges. They aren't a must but they could prove beneficial.

Holistic Actress

She had practically danced her way down to the third floor. Her shoes tapping against the stone steps of the moving staircases as she waited for them to move along and slide into the right places for her to get to the annex as easily as possible. Her old battery operated vintage yellow Walkman would have made her look insane in muggle communities but hey…they were at Hogwarts and this was basically the only way that she could listen to anything. And really, the tape didn’t have to be older music, but lets face it that was kind of her style.

She was looking at the balloons and targets set up for class as she tapped her feet and danced a bit and got into the mood to actually do the work…and well…really she couldn’t stop an awesome song for homework that was like…sacrilegious.

“Yeah, my, mind’s such a sweet thing” she hummed along and swayed slightly as she sort of sung along “I wanna do everything…what a beautiful feelin’” she grinned and kept singing quietly. “Crimson and clover – over and over” and she was going to get to the homework soon after awkwardly dancing and singing along to the end of the song for a bit.

“Crimson and clover over and over” she hummed until it faded out and turned the cover she was listening to off. Hopefully no one had walked in on her awkwardly swaying from side to side and rocking out to her singing the Joan Jett version of the song.

Still.

Did it matter?

Not turning off her Walkman and simply pocketing it she simply brandished her wand and readied herself. Deep steadying breath she pointed her wand at the balloon in the box still keeping an eye on the moving targets above her. They were swishing and swooshing and arching and going in all sorts of directions. If it were the camera in a single camera movie she would have probably gotten all-dizzy by now. So this probably was good to have music to? She could tell that every third drum beat the top target was more visible.

Waiting until the first drum beat Pointed her wand at balloon. “Alarte Ascendare!” She cast, and watched as the paint filled balloon launched itself the balloon soured higher and higher until it smacked into the edge of a target on the middle row the paint exploding all over the target and one near it. Still, it was obviously splatter…but still, this was fun.

Talking Charms Homework 1- Post 1 (For Kori/AJ! <3)
Alicia Lightwood- Bane ~ Mrs Steve Harrington ~ Friendly Neighbourhood Hufflepuff ~ WhittyBitty's

Time for some practice with that spell they had learnt from the last Charms lesson! Adi paused in front of the Charms Annexe to polish off a sour patch kiddy. Yes, yes, he knew they were for Benny but he was in the mood for something soury today. Was it abnormal for him to be eating sours instead of sweets? Yep but the Kiddies weren't always sour since they got sweet after a while. Anywaaay, he swallowed the treat and stepped into the room. Oh, hey, Puck! Adi waved to her before shuffling off in another direction. He wasn't going to disturb her from her practice.

The Hufflepuff came upon the three rows of moving targets. He stood as though transfixed, watching the rows. He decided to focus on the lowest row first. James had reminded him of something back at the Courtyard the other day... sometimes it was better to start off small. So, keeping that bit of advice in mind, he continued watching the row move, looking for a pattern so that it could make his target practice easier. Oh yeah! That reminded him... Adi looked around. There were the balloons they were to use! Right in the corner.

Right. Some more observing told him the pace of the targets and how often they changed direction. Now he was ready to start the practice! No, wait, wait! Adi had to ensure he had the incantation correct. "Alarte Ascendare, Alarte Ascendare, Alarte Ascendare.'' A few seconds of muttering the incantation and then brandishing his wand didn't hurt in the preparation. NOW he was ready. And a balloon too.

"ALARTE ASCENDARE!" BRANDIIIISH!

WOAH! Look at that balloon goooooo!

Maybe it was because he was not standing directly under the first row, maybe he had brandished the wand a little too much or maybe because Adi had said the incantation waaay too enthusiastically but...

SPLAT!!!

The balloon soared right past the bottom line of target, smacking into one in the second row and spattering the target and nearby ones with green paint. Woops. Not what he had aimed for but it would do.

Default Charms homework #1 - Post 1
♥s her SS family l Wifey is MINE | Naughty Niffler l Whittysaur l #awkwardturtle<#

Thank Merlin the homework didn't involve being shot into the air. Lux didn't think she could handle it again, and once had been MORE than enough. If Quigley didn't stop with the heights thing, she would end up boycotting his class activities. That SUCKED because not only did she generally like them, but it was important that she get good grades in Charms.

Entering the Charms Annex, she waved at Puck and Adi. "Hey, guys!" Looked like they had also decided to get a head start on the homework assignment. Shooting paint balloons at targets sounded like fun, if not a little messy. She'd try not to get paint all over the walls and ceiling because even with the use of magic it would probably be a pain to clean up. It would also suck if her clothes and hair got messy; paint was not always easy to clean out.

Looking at the targets, Lux saw that they were in different rows and moved all over the place. Wow, the challenge was real. She liked that. She'd start off small and work her way up. Settling on one of the targets in the bottom row, she watched as it moved in a circular motion. Why not give it a shot? Sure, it would be easier to go with one that moved horizontally...but this offered a bit more difficulty.

Waiting for what she felt to be the right moment, Lux brandished her wand at one of the balloons. "ALARTE ASCENDARE!" It soared straight up into the air and....

SPLATT.

Haha, oops. Now there was red paint on the ceiling where the target had been just moments before.

Homework time was the worse time, BUT this one wouldn't be so bad because it was hands on. AJ actually didn't mind practicing spells because she really needed the extra help. With her being a fourth year she hoped that she wouldn't be struggling as much. So far she hadn't been that impressed with herself. Maybe that was a bit too harsh because she actually did really well with Airey's fun game in class where she was able to be the moon.

Her mind wandering habit needed to stop. Having focus was one of her downfalls when it came to spellwork. That and almost always being late to things. Whoops. AJ jogged into the annexe where she told Adi she would meet him. She wasn't that late, was she? "Hey, you." Lux got a warm smile from her too, but she was busy practicing so no full conversations now.

"Is the green paint your doings?" AJ bet it was. "Now that I am here we can get some real work done." And deep down she really wanted to work with Adi on this because catman said they couldn't work together during class. Well, how did he like THESE apples? Heh.

"ALARTE ASCENDARE... ALARTE ASCENDARE..." she mumbled to herself making sure that she was all warmed up so she could show her Hufflepuff boyfriend up. Now, all she needed to do was hit a target that just so happened to be moving. No problem. She had this in the bag.

"Alarte Ascendare." She brandished her wand as her eyes were on a target on the top row. Go big or go home. Up, up, up, annnnnd the target moved JUST before she could make contact. RUDE. Red paint was all over the ceiling. The spell had worked for her, and that was something. Better than whipping your wand around without any results whatsoever. She would take it.

The target did look cool Adi had to admit. Now, if only he could splash some orange and yellow up there- Oh, HEY, Lux! He called back the greeting to his friend just as his girlfriend arrived.

"Of course it's my doing, AJ,'' Adi responded happily. Did she have any doubt? "My aim is on target.'' Literally. Hehe. He failed to mention that he had not been aiming for that particular target. No need to tell AJ THAT so she could jibe him. Real work, huh? Cue the snort! "Sure, sure. The stage is alllll yours.'' Adi made a sweeping movement with his hands, indicating the portion of the room where AJ can stand to do her practice.

Adi shifted, watching AJ practice the incantation first. And off she went! Or he should say off went the balloon. Man, that thing went WAAAAY HIGH! So high that it splattered the ceiling. "I think you need to have your eyes or your aim fixed. Or both.'' LOL.

The sixth year snagged another balloon. "This is how it's done.'' He took a few seconds to re-focus on the bottom most row of targets. They were moving diagonally now. Right! He had a sense of their pace once more. "Alarte Ascendare!" BRANDISH the wand with a head full of concentration!

The balloon took off towards the target at such a pace, yo! It was like Batman zooming off in his Batmobile! It hit the moving target with a...

POP!SPLATTER!


Blue paint stained the object. "Top that, AJ!'' Hehe. It was great to be working with her for this exercise. A little friendly competition was always good for the soul. Especially since they couldn't do that during the last class.

All of this paint splashing made her wish they were having a paint balloon fight instead of target practicing. How much more fun would that be? Maybe she could accidentally hit Adi with a balloon and see what happens next. Then again that would not help them in the argument about the pair working together in class. Next time. Right now she needed to show up her boyfriend.

"Sure it is." His aim couldn't be as good as hers, and she was just going to have to prove that to him right here and right now. Of course she wasn't doing too good of a job showing him up at the moment.

"Did you see how high it went though?" That was what having mad skills did for you. It was however not that object of today's practice, sooo.... whoops.

Snort. "Maybe I can borrow your glasses." Only kidding. Her eyesight was perfect. "I was just warming up." Yeah, that was her story and she was sticking to it.

AJ watched as Adi gave it another go. He was going to do well, she just had this feeling. Up, up, up it went, and BOOM. He had hit his target, or a target rather. Who knew if that was the actual one he was going for. "Good shot." It was all on her now. She had to make the next one. "My turn."

A nice easy target might be her best bet this time. Or maybe she should go for a a target that was close to other ones. That way even if she did miss her original target, there would be others there to back her up. Oh, she liked that idea. AJ was going with it. "Alarte Ascendare." Her balloon was going upppp. It was so close. Was it going to be a hit?

SPLAT!!!

Direct hit!!! Yellow paint splattered all over her moving target. "How did you like that?" Did he think she wasn't going to hit it? Because she totally did, and she was beaming about her success.

Norah grinned as she entered the Charms Annexe, her mouth slightly open because look at that! There were ACTUAL paint balloons, not just a lie Professor Quigley made up to try and get her to do her homework. Man, she underestimated that cat guy. With wand in hand, she skipped walked all the way to the box and inspected the balloons. Aha! A purple one. That was always the very best color to start with, the rainbow had it all wrong. Lifting the balloon, she made her way over to the lowest targets and then set the wonderfully purple blob down at her feet. "Alarte ascendare!" the fourth year brandished her wand before stepping under the target to get a good view of the balloon going up and up. EXCEPT all of a sudden it wasn't going up and up anymore, it was coming down and down without even having hit the target. By the time it occurred to her that she should get out of the way, Norah's feet felt like they were glued to the floor, and a split second later--SPLAT

She shut her eyes tight as the paint dripped down her face and the back of her neck. A quick pat of her head informed her that all of her auburn curls were caked with paint as well. AWESOME. If only she had a mirror so she could see how radical she looked with purple hair. Maybe she should dye it or something, but paint was more fun anyways. The fourth year aimed her wand at her face and cast, "Scourgify," just so she'd be able to see, and left the rest of her head paint-covered for FUN reasons, y'know.

"I did.'' Adi jerked his head up to look at the ceiling. "I reckon Quigley wouldn't mind a bit of a paint job getting done,'' he added with a laugh. If there were just some more colours the ceiling would look a while lot better but he figured that would change soon enough since the Annexe was filling up with more students who wanted to get their practice done. "Sureeee! If it will fix your eyes and give me more of a challenge.'' Adi smirked. He could ever resist giving AJ a difficult time. "We'll just see about that.''

"Thanks!'' Adi retreated to the side to give AJ room to do her thing. His brown eyes followed his girlfriends balloon as it soared UUUPPPPP! and smack into a target. "Not bad!'' How about a fist bump, AJ? "Back to me!'' Adi randomly selected a balloon. He was aiming for the topmost row this time. "Alarte Ascendare!" A quick brandish sent the balloon skyrocketting up, up, u- no.


SMACK!


Ugh! His intent was apparently not enough because the balloon smashed into a target on the bottom row, spraying it with lime green paint. Meh. But still! It was a hit!

"I was aiming for the top row,''
the Puffer informed AJ. "How about this? We both aim for the top row. Together.'' That would be fun, yes? YES!

Spotting AJ, Lux waved to her friend and saw as she headed over to Adi. Of course they would be working together on this assignment. That was adorable. Professor Quigley not allowing them to partner up in class probably had made them even more determined to be a team.

Gazing back at the moving targets, Lux thought that maybe it had been a bit premature to start off with one that moved circular. Maybe it was best to start with a horizontally moving one. Yes, that sounded a lot simpler and probably wouldn't result in a messier ceiling. The red paint splatters DID look pretty nice though.

Patiently she waited for them to start moving in the direction she wanted, then chose her target. Studying it carefully, she managed to work out just how fast it was moving. She would time it perfectly and get paint splattered all over the place. Hehe. Smiling at the thought, she cast the spell at another balloon. "ALARTE ASCENDARE!"

SPLAT!!

The balloon hit the target near the left edge, resulting in both it and part of the next target getting covered in blue paint. "Awesome!" She was going to count that as a hit!

Zhenya followed the directions on the notice posted on the Slytherin board. Charms homework. She entered the Charms annexe to practice the spell against targets, and as she did she saw that they were moving targets. Not just stationary. OH BOY! Anyway, it would be fun fun fun. Practicing with paint filled balloons? How much more fun could you get? Well, if the floor was trampoline-d like it had been in class, that would be a lot of fun too, but she knew that would defeat the purpose of the targets. They could just jump and hit the targets.

Anyway... she pulled her wand from her robes and grabbed a paint balloon, setting it on the floor. She started for the first one, of course, and tried to line them up... even though they were moving. "A-lar-tay a-SEN-day-ray," she said carefully, brandishing her wand at the balloon. The balloon went UP, straight up, not even a warning. And HIT THE TARGET! Green paint splashed on the target and Zhenya did a happy dance. It didn't move!

Part of Lux wanted to move on to the second level of targets, but in the end she decided to give the bottom row one more go. Maybe this time she would hit one directly in the center, making things even more amazing. By the time she was finished this homework, she would be a total pro at hitting targets with paint balloons.

Look at her goooo.

The targets were were moving diagonally now, and wow that was even more of difficult. Hmmm, she'd have to try even harder to get the timing right with this set. No matter because she did enjoy challenges.

Eyes landing on a target, Lux followed it carefully with her eyes so that she could get a sense of timing. A minute or so later, she felt ready. Her wand was brandished at one of the paint balloons. "ALARTE ASCENDARE!" Look at that balloon shoot upwards!

SPATTTT!!

Missing the intended target, the balloon hit one from the very top row, splattering it with yellow paint. Okay, how did she even manage that? o_O It was a total fluke, but Lux was still proud of herself. Yaaaaay.

So, with ONE successful hitting of the goal, Zhenya moved on to the next one, which was a bit higher. She also noticed it was moving. She tried to watch it for a few moments, as if mesmerised, as it moved side to side, then suddenly did a circle before moving side to side again. There was some kind of rhythm with it, Zhenya was sure, but there was no even number of side to side before circle. Once it did side to side 3 times, then a circle, the next twice, then circle, then 4 times, then circle. She would just have to try. So, she got another balloon, put it down somewhere that she knew aligned with the target at one point in its movement. She stood a while longer to try and pick when she would do it, and "ALARTE ASCENDARE," she said, brandishing her wand at the balloon.

It went up, JUST as the target decided to do a circle, and it nicked itself on the corner, popping on the ceiling. Yellow paint exploded from the balloon, and Zhenya gulped. Ohhh, maybe she could just volunteer her cleaning services to Professor Quigley? Hopefully he wouldn't be too mad...

Busy, busy, busy!

After wolfing down his early supper, Ethan went up to the Charms Annexe to get started with his homework. He was expecting that he’ll be the first in the room, but when he entered the area...well, he was wrong. The Slytherin eyed the, now multi-colored moving targets, ceiling...and floor. Uh-huh. It was going to be a messy business, and he should have worn something that he won’t mind getting stained. Not that he couldn’t undo the stains, but, effort you know?

The blond Mordaunt pulled on his shirt’s hood up, and stood beside a fellow Slytherin. Well, he’d seen her around the common room, and lectures, but never got the opportunity to talk to her. He knew her to be in Grayson’s year, and, if he remembered it correctly, her name’s Zhenya. “Hi.” Ethan greeted the she-Snake with a grin as he got his wand out and fixed his hood. “Your name’s Zhenya, right? I’m Ethan.”

He didn’t want to intrude her exercise or anything, so the Slytherin went ahead to summon a paint balloon, and positioned it carefully on the floor. Moving targets though? He’d start off with the slow one, just so he could gauge how the thing works. “Alarte Ascendare!”

Zoom!Splot!

The paint balloon did hit the edge of the target, but it was not the result that Ethan was expecting. He reckoned he was too near from the paint balloon, making him almost miss the target.

Huh. Tricky.

Zhenya went to grab another balloon, and was just deciding where she should put it on the ground, when she heard someone behind her. It startled her a bit, but not enough to stop the balloon. She wouldn't have liked to get paint on the ground AND ceiling. It was another Slytherin. She smiled at him and nodded, "Yep, that's me," she said cheerfully. "Ethan?" Yeah she knew that was his name, but it might have been weird if she had just said 'Hi Ethan...' though she wasn't sure why. She looked up and saw he had put his hood on, "Good thinking with the hood." It was a good idea. So, when Zhenya finally decided where to place her balloon, after carefully observing the target above, even though it probably didn't matter, she put her own hood on. She didn't want to get paint in her hair.

After a few more nervous moments of deciding what the best time was, she seemed to time it perfectly. "ALARTE ASCENDARE," she said, brandishing her wand at it. It pelted up and hit the target with so much force, she was splattered by the blue paint. She looked around her, panicking, but was relieved to see there were no droplets of blue paint on the ground, just a fine spray on her robes. Good timing with the hood!

“Yes, the cooler Mordaunt cousin...in case you’ve already met Cutty.” Not everyone in the whole school knows about them being blood related for real. Most, if not all, thinks that they’re just trolling Hogwarts. “I suppose it’s easier to scourgify our clothing than our hair...” Ethan shrugged with a grin. Besides, Alec told him years ago that hair IS important. He’s got nice hair, and he intends to keep it that way, thank you very much.

Ethan watched as his fellow Slytherin hit the target, and the younger Snake gave her a slow clap of approval. “Well done, Zhenya.” Deadly hit, by the way.

The sixth year placed another paint balloon on the floor, and stepped back further from it. Ethan was able to gauge the target better because of his present vista. Now all he has got to do is to lock his eye on a target, and wait until it’s right smack under his paint balloon.

3...2... “Alarte...” Engage! “Ascendare!”

ZOOM!SPLOSH!

Neon green paint splattered around them as the balloon hit his intended target. Whoop!

Cutty... after a few seconds she thought she could picture him. "Oh I didn't know you were related. That's cool! Nice having a cousin here at the same time?" Zhenya would have liked to be here with her siblings, but they were all timed so perfectly that their time at Hogwarts would never coincide. Zhenya nodded in agreement, "Very practical. And it adds colour to our uniform," she added, though she tried not to laugh at imagining Professor Flamsteed or Professor Bellaire's faces if she rocked up to class with paint stained robes.

She felt herself blush as Ethan clapped for her. Slightly shy about having an audience, but pleased nonetheless.

WOW COOL Neon GREEN! Now it was Zhenya's turn to clap and cheer Ethan on. "WOO!" she yelled. This was so much fun, even better with someone else there.

But she didn't like the look of the third target. She picked up another balloon, had a look up to assess the target. It was making no sense to her. Moving all directions, quickly, with no pattern that she could guess. She shook her head up at it, shrugged and placed the balloon carefully on the ground. Well... not much she could do if she couldn't pick up on when to cast the spell. She just went for it. "ALARTE ASCENDARE," the balloon shot up into the air and missed the target by a few inches. She had already got the ceiling with blue paint, and now she added pink paint to it as well. Yeah, hopefully Quigley wouldn't get mad... but despite her nervousness for what he would say, she giggled. I mean... she missed the target by a few INCHES!

SPOILER!!: Adi
"I did.'' Adi jerked his head up to look at the ceiling. "I reckon Quigley wouldn't mind a bit of a paint job getting done,'' he added with a laugh. If there were just some more colours the ceiling would look a while lot better but he figured that would change soon enough since the Annexe was filling up with more students who wanted to get their practice done. "Sureeee! If it will fix your eyes and give me more of a challenge.'' Adi smirked. He could ever resist giving AJ a difficult time. "We'll just see about that.''
................

"Thanks!'' Adi retreated to the side to give AJ room to do her thing. His brown eyes followed his girlfriends balloon as it soared UUUPPPPP! and smack into a target. "Not bad!'' How about a fist bump, AJ? "Back to me!'' Adi randomly selected a balloon. He was aiming for the topmost row this time. "Alarte Ascendare!" A quick brandish sent the balloon skyrocketting up, up, u- no.


SMACK!

Ugh! His intent was apparently not enough because the balloon smashed into a target on the bottom row, spraying it with lime green paint. Meh. But still! It was a hit!

"I was aiming for the top row,'' the Puffer informed AJ. "How about this? We both aim for the top row. Together.'' That would be fun, yes? YES!


AJ figured the exact opposite about Quigley's view on a paint job. Not a lot she could do now that the damage was done though. "He can always have everything cleaned off with a wave of his wand." So it really wasn't that bad even if he didn't like her little paint splatter. AJ spotted Lux's wave and smiled at the older Hufflepuff. "You just keep telling yourself that." How bad his vision really was, AJ didn't know, but she wasn't going to admit him taking his glasses off would be a disadvantage for him. At least not right now while they were still practicing.

It was more than just "not bad" but she smiled anyways. It was nice actually hitting an target. AJ fist bumped her boyfriend back and watched as he did his thing. It was going up, but would it hit a target?

"Good job---" Oh, but that wasn't the target he was actually aiming for. "Better luck next time." A hit was a hit in her eyes. AJ's eyes lit up at his offer. "You're on." AJ grabbed a balloon and off she went. "One...two... THREE!"

"Alarte Ascendare!" Her balloon was on the move. It was past the first row. Could she really make a hit this time? And on her actual intended target!!!

POP!!!

Orange paint was splattered ALL over a target on the TOP ROW. The lion hopped up and down in her excitement. "Did you see that?" she asked already knowing the answer. How could he not see it? EEP. She did it!

Well, it was kind of hard to explain that Cutty isn’t his cousin-cousin. He knows a thing or two about this, Adonis guy who is Cutty’s father, this ‘uncle’ of his is...well, his grandfather’s son outside of marriage. Even though that was the setup, Ethan never saw Cutty as someone less than a cousin. A cousin is a cousin, period. The blond Mordaunt simply shrugged, unsure of what to say. “It’s okay, I guess? Cutty’s got a world of his own, so, I don’t talk to him that much.” Ethan admits that he’s a weirdo, but not as weird, or as deep as Cutty. They do share the same blood, opposing personalities, but they’ve got that Mordaunt attitude. The latter says a lot, because they were both sorted into the same house as their ancestors. Weird, right?

If Zhenya was shy about having an audience, Ethan was her opposite. The Slytherin raised both of his hand, “Yuuusss!!!”, as he successfully hit his target with neon green paint. “Thank you, thank you!” he said as he did a series of flamboyant bows towards an imaginary audience. Hehehehe!

He then stepped back as he watched the she-Snake attempt to have her paint balloon hit the target. She missed though, and Ethan winced. What did she say about their uniforms having paint? “It is practical, sure...but not until I’ve got pink paint on my robes.” Ethan pointed at his robe, chuckled, and got himself another balloon from the stack, he did the same technique as before, and waited for a slow target. Timing his spell, “Alarte Ascendare!” his balloon zoomed upwards, but missed the target because it suddenly changed direction. The ceiling was now...well, splattered with yellow paint. Oops?

"Quigley will kill us." Welp.

Zhenya just nodded. She got it. Well, she thought so. She thought perhaps it would be nice going to Hogwarts for the first time with someone, or at least knowing someone who was there. She hadn't known anyone before she started, but in the end it really didn't matter all that much.

Ethan seemed to enjoy the winning glory, and his reaction made Zhenya laugh, and clap again. And more laughs with the pink splatters. "Well I'm sure sometime in the future colours will be the new black! We're just setting the trend a few... decades early." She nodded and laughed again.

She watched Ethan cast his next balloon up, and bit her lip as yellow spread on the ceiling. She didn't want to laugh, but it was almost like digging themselves in deeper, with the mess and everything. "Yeaaaaah," she said slowly. "If he can hold of on the killing part, he might let us volunteer to clean it up?" Heck, she realised they didn't need to volunteer. They were at Hogwarts, were they not? A cleaning charm would probably... maybe work. And if not... maybe they could make the floor into a trampoline and they could jump up and try and clean at the same time. Elbow grease.

She grabbed the next balloon and plopped it on the ground, watching above. The target was tricky, Zhenya was certain it was all to do with luck. "ALARTE ASCENDARE," she said, brandishing her wand at it. She prematurely started to beam at it, thinking it was going to hit the target, but it moved, and the balloon grazed the side of the target and splat white paint on the ceiling. She shrugged, "Better than pink, I guess."

Zander was here, not because he wanted to do homework... But because he had to do homework. There really was a big difference. Then again, no one ever really wanted to do homework. Unless they were Ravenclaw, which in that case is an entirely different story. But then again, Ravenclaws... Y'know? But anyways, Zander was thankful for the fact that Charms homework was always more hands on, rather than essays. Essays were the worst. So you know what? He ought to give CatMan a thank you for that. Probably the nicest thing Professor Q would ever do for them.

Hopefully that'd continue. Zander might protest homework all together if they start getting ten page essays for class. Or even IN class like what Professor Bellaire did last year. The WORST.

So anyways, he couldn't really complain as he made his way into the Charms Annexe with wand in hand. He did, however, take note of how many others were in the room practicing as well. He gave them all small nods (choosing not to smile or anything 'cause ugh homework), before walking to a corner for himself.

Alright.... So what exactly was the homework again?? Uh. Maybe he should start copying this stuff down ahead of time or something? But by the looks of it, people were using the charm they learned in class (well spotted, Adair) on those targets on the ceiling. Oh, easy enough--wait, they moved? Uh. Okay, not as easy. But he could get the hang of it. With that in mind, the Gryffindor walked over to the box where everyone seemed to be picking the balloons up from. He grabbed a nice green one and then walked back over to his little corner.

This was gonna need some sort of strategizing though, 'cause if he managed to miss the targets too many times Professor Q would probably get onto him about it. So instead of going for it right away, which he normally would have done mind you, he just watched a few of the targets as they moved around, trying to get a feel of the patterns and figure out how to expect their next moves.

Ethan gave a hearty laugh. “Can you imagine us boys wearing PINK robes to school? I mean, I think it won’t be a problem for you girls, but it’ll be hilarious for the males.” Can she imagine Grayson sporting the colour?! LOLOLOL! That was a good one, Zhenya!

Blue green eyes then glanced up at the multi-coloured ceiling. “I really hope it’s charmed too. But yes, I’ll take the clean up option than die because of paint.” Speaking of cleaning up, Ethan wondered if Zhenya had noticed something lately? As he gathered another balloon from the stack, the Slytherin glanced back at the she-Snake. “We can also ask the house-elves to help us...but it seems that they’ve got their hands full too lately.” Hopefully, the cobwebs and excess dust that he’d seen at the first floor was nothing to worry about.

The sixth year then placed the balloon on the floor, and eyed another target. “Well, here goes nothing.” Hoping that it won’t change direction again, Ethan brandished his wand and said the incantation. “Alarte Ascendare!” the balloon zoomed up in full speed, leaving the target no choice but to get hit. Bright blue paint splattered on the spot, and the excess paint dripped on them. “I must say...” he said examining his robe and hers, “Blue looks good on you.” Hehehehe.

“One more for the road?” Ethan asked as he picked another balloon for himself and for Zhenya. Then probably after their exercise, they can get on with dinner.

AJ figured the exact opposite about Quigley's view on a paint job. Not a lot she could do now that the damage was done though. "He can always have everything cleaned off with a wave of his wand." So it really wasn't that bad even if he didn't like her little paint splatter. AJ spotted Lux's wave and smiled at the older Hufflepuff. "You just keep telling yourself that." How bad his vision really was, AJ didn't know, but she wasn't going to admit him taking his glasses off would be a disadvantage for him. At least not right now while they were still practicing.

It was more than just "not bad" but she smiled anyways. It was nice actually hitting an target. AJ fist bumped her boyfriend back and watched as he did his thing. It was going up, but would it hit a target?

"Good job---" Oh, but that wasn't the target he was actually aiming for. "Better luck next time." A hit was a hit in her eyes. AJ's eyes lit up at his offer. "You're on." AJ grabbed a balloon and off she went. "One...two... THREE!"

"Alarte Ascendare!" Her balloon was on the move. It was past the first row. Could she really make a hit this time? And on her actual intended target!!!

POP!!!

Orange paint was splattered ALL over a target on the TOP ROW. The lion hopped up and down in her excitement. "Did you see that?" she asked already knowing the answer. How could he not see it? EEP. She did it!


Of course he got a ready-to-go, positive reply from AJ. Competition was her thing and Adi was right there with her. Of course he was; it had been his idea. He snagged another balloon and on AJ's count to three, he cast the spell.

"ALARTE ASCENDARE!" With a VERYYY enthusiastic brandish. This balloon too, shot up towards the target. Like REALLLLYYY shot up. The problem was, Adi had not read the pace of the movements of the top row targets properly and so his balloon went RIGHT PAST the targets and towards the ceiling.

SMACK!POP!


Bright pink paint splattered across the top of the room, joining the other colours of paint and bits of busted rubber bladders. Heh. Let's just forget that happened, yes? But like AJ said, Catman can clean it up if he didn't appreciate his students' help.

"AWESOME job, AJ!'' Yesh, he did see that. Adi had turd his attention to his girlfriend's work. Orange paint. "Orange is good luck for you,'' he observed casually. "Let's go again?" And this time he WOULD get one of those targets!

Eden was supposed to meet Clara in here so that they could do their Charms homework together. That would be fun. She couldn't remember the last time she'd done homework with CLARA and not Cole(because he was her homework buddy lately).

She arrived at the Annexe and eyed the targets above her...they were moving. Oh. This would be so fun. Eden had chosen not to wear her robes, thank Merlin, but some an old t-shirt and pants....there was no requirement of ROBES here. Eden was almost never always thinking ahead! She picked a spot in the corner of the room and rather than wait for Clara to arrive to practice, she grabbed one of the balloons and decided to just...get a feel for the spell again. She might have to practice a few times before actually doing it. Hmm. She almost wished she could practice on something else first..did she have anything in her pockets?

Nope. Nothing.

"It's all right, Eden...just ...little practice. Don't shoot the balloon too HIGH--" she just had to concentrate...."Alarte Ascendare!" she said clearly, and with AUTHORITY. Her balloon shot up slightly into the air, and Eden poised herself underneath the balloon to catch it accurately. Right. She didn't even get paint everywhere! WHOOH.

Now..where was Clarabear?

Norah, whose hair was still streaked with purple paint, made her way over to the box again with a huge smile on her face. Take two, yeah? She was totally gonna hit the target this time, she'd decided. It'd worked with Hady so it had to work with the balloon too, it only made sense. Inspecting the balloons in the box carefully, she selected a yellow balloon this time 'cause PUFFER PRIDE. Alrighty. Back to the targets.

She placed the balloon at her feet under one of the lower targets, and stepped back so she wasn't standing directly beneath where it'd be coming down. See? She could learn from her mistakes some time, if you could even call this a mistake 'cause last time she checked purple hair was AWESOME. Her mum would probably disagree, but she never ever had to find out. Brandishing her wand in the direction of her yellow balloon, she cast "Alarte Ascendare!" The balloon shot upwards, all the way up to the target this time, and hit it with a satisfying SPLAT! "Bullseye!" Okay fine, it wasn't actually a bullseye but it HAD hit the target so y'know it totally counted. Drops of yellow paint came raining down, and the fourth year stuck her arm out to catch some of the color. Yellow polka dotted arms! What could be better?
