Default Transfiguration Lesson 1

Nope, you haven’t accidentally stumbled into the hall of mirrors. Yep, this is definitely the disused classroom where Professor Barlow is ready to crack on with not only the last lesson of the day but the last lesson of the week. You might have that Friday feeling but slacking off today could result in messy consequences.

All desks have been temporarily vanished and in the space they once occupied, you’ll instead find a large semi-circle made up of individual, full-length mirrors. Hopefully you’re not having a bad hair day.

“Come in, come in, find yourself a mirror to stand in front of,”
Barlow brightly instructs as you enter, “we’ll be starting shortly.”
OOC: Hello and welcome to the first RPed Transfiguration class of the term! Gonna be moving things forward in 24 hours give or take (: Class has started!

Default q for the prof but like........ not one that's remotely on task
tag yourself i'm felix | daxton prince was here | schrödinger's tag

When Eiji spoke up, Kaiser automatically turned to look at him, nodding slightly as he listened. Trapped in your transfigured state, huh? Well, Kaiser was not exactly filled with confidence about the fact that they were about to be attempting this with the likes of all these first years and himself in attendance. But was the permanence ever intentional, or only accidental?

As Barlow chimed in, Kaiser turned his attention back to him again. That whole part about magic having an expiry date was interesting, he didn't know why he'd never thought about it before. Then again, there was a lot about magic that Kaiser didn't really think about, in terms of the intricacies and everything. It was a lot easier to just accept it was a thing and move on.

The answers he'd got were interesting. Especially as you couldn't do a permanent spell on purpose - he supposed the Permanent Sticking Charm was different - but you could by accident. Kaiser nodded vaguely to himself as the class moved on, though his thoughts were starting to drift...

... After a couple of minutes, he suddenly tuned back in again. Did Barlow just say 'growing our eyebrows'?

Apparently - according to that demonstration - he had. Why... why on earth did that spell exist? Who invented it and for what purpose? Were long eyebrows an old wizarding fashion? ... Actually, thinking about it, Kaiser wouldn't immediately discount that possibility.

Well, at least he didn't have to worry about getting stuck with floor length eyebrows; if such a thing happened, trimming them back again would be easy. Kaiser took out his wand and finally looked at himself in the mirror.

"Crinis Excresco." He tapped one eyebrow, and then the other, and then leaned a little closer to the glass the peer at them. Any longer? Even a little? Yes? ... No. No, not even remotely. Well, that was fine.

Maybe it was because his mind was still on that other thing. That thing about magic and expiry dates. Clearly he'd have to ask. Clearly. "Professor?" he called out, twirling his wand idly as he considered his reflection. "Was Hogwarts built using magic?" It had to be, right? It was enchanted. The question also applied to Beauxbatons, he supposed. Durmstrang too. All wizarding buildings. "What happens when the magic wears off?" Would the whole thing suddenly turn to rubble?

Like, not to expect the worst or anything, but...

Whey in the name of Merlin would anyone want to grow their eyebrows like that??? That seems off and frankly the Professor looked ridiculous like that. Blake and no interest in participating in such an act ... but he couldn't refuse, he didn't want to get into trouble for not trying in class. All he could hope for was that his feeble first year magic wouldn't actually work on this one.

Turning back toward the mirror ... and his black head, he pointed his wand at his eyebrows.....'well here goes nothing' he thought. Silently praying it didn't work. "Crinis Excresco!” ... and much to his delight nothing happened. Whew no saying he didn't trying now.

Cece grinned, she LIKED this professor. He was enthusiastic like her AND he seemed to be a LITTLE bit crazy, which was funny to watch and made class more enjoyable. She cupped a hand over her mouth to stifle her giggles as she watched his eyebrows grow and grow and GROW so that they were covering his WHOLE face. Wait until she wrote to Sammy about this! He'd LOVE it.

...Cecelia just KIND of hoped her eyebrow hair would be prettier than his when it was super long.

Might as well try so she could find out! First she tapped one eyebrow, then the other, then she uttered a “Crinis Excresco!” Leaning forward so that her nose was practically TOUCHING her mirror, she tried to see if ANY of her eyebrow hairs had grown. HM. "I think this one is actually a little longer. I think so. Great start!" Only no, it wasn't any longer at all.

Claudine had been pleased with herself for providing an answer that no one had thought off. She was even more pleased that Barlow seemed to appreciate that one; or at least, he agreed with her. Soon enough came the time for them to practice the spell. She looked up at Dorian. “You’ll help if I run into trouble?” she asked. For some reason, she found it easy to talk to and ask for help from him.

Now, she studied her reflection for a few seconds as she attempted to picture herself with overgrown eyebrows. Hers were perfect just the way they were so why in Merlin’s name would she even want to ever use this spell? Brown eyes rolled at the thought. What a useless spell. Looking at Barlow and his bushy brows, she thought the long hair was an awful inconvenience.

Still, she would give this a go. “Crinis Excresco,’’ Claudine stated confidently and tapped the brow over her right eye. The Snakette leaned closer into the mirror; she squinted. “I really do believe it’s grown less than a quarter of an inch,’’ she said as much to herself as to Dorian.

Really. The brow did look only slightly longer.

So the professor just gave himself werewolf eyebrows and then tucked them behind his ears and acted like no-big-deal. That was rockstar level cool, and Phoebe knew a fair few rockstars. She petted her own eyebrows as she took a spot in front of her mirror. They'd go back, no matter what, right? Like she couldn't get stuck with tiny bald patches or anything?

Fortune favored the bold, hm? "Crinis Excresco," Phoebe tried to point the wand at her eyebrows but... maybe at her nose. Oh no! "Professor, could this spell make our nose hair grow? Because my wand is hard to aim..."

Fiona watched carefully as Professor Barlow demonstrated the spell. She had enough troubles with her hair so the idea of eyebrows resembling caterpillars didn't appeal to the young Slytherin in the slightest. Fiona faced the mirror and tap her left eyebrow, then her right and said, "Crinis Excresco." She inspected her eyebrows and noticed that they were slightly hairier. "Ah, well. Better than nothin'," she muttered to herself.

Difference between charms and transfiguration?? Was this a review class because Carsyn learned all this in year one. It was for that reason that she just stood quietly, with nothing really to add. She instead just stood in front of the mirror, making faces at it, pondering if that counted as human transfiguration?? Facial expressions were in a sense transfiguration, were they not?

Oh and they were moving on to an activity of making their eyebrows grow. UM. WHY WOULD there need to be a charm for THAT??!? Whoever invented that spell clearly had no fashion sense; or did they invent the spell to use as an offensive method in dueling?? What was the purpose of this??

Bernadette was C L E A R L Y amazed by the professor's eyebrow hair.


"Truly, truly astounding, sir," she complimented him with a small smattering of applause, all the while thinking that he looked a bit like Cousin It. He just needed a bowler hat... was that, uh, something they could transfigure? Or were hats more of a charm thing?

Hmmmm.... she turned her attention back to herself and her mirror self. How long did she want her brows to be? Well the trend was to be on the bushy side these days, but Bernadette had nice, normal eyebrows at the moment. She wasn't sure she wanted to be Cousin It's cousin, but it was an assignment, so she pointed her wand gently to her first eyebrow, over her left eye.

"Crinis Excresco!"

EEEEEEP! HER EYEBROW WAS G R O W I N G! SO FAST! SO HAIRY! SO LONG!

"HELP HELP!" Bernadette shouted as soon as she felt her EYEBROW tickle her CHIN. "Professor, sir! How do I make it STOP growing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Before she had a chance to practice the spell on herself - ugh, she really was dreading this - there was a first year lion cub who seemed to have eyebrow hair down to her chin. See, disaster. THE POINT, Professor??? What was the point of all of this??

"Finite incantatem usually does the trick." Carsyn chimed in, hopefully helpful. It was honestly one of the BEST counter spells one could do to learn at an early age. "Did you want to try it?" Or like, she could do it too.

SOMEONE HELP HER PLEASE!!! Bernadette was FREAKING OUT over her eyebrow hair. Nay, her eyebrow EXTENSIONS!!!!!

"Please cast that on me," she begged the older girl who was talking to her. She had no idea who she was, but she could tell the voice belonged to a girl and the shape of the girl was taller than she was. "I know I've done that spell before, but i can't really see to aim at myself now." And also, she was a little bit scared to cast something else on herself in case it made things WORSE.

If it could prolong her casting the uselessness of the eyebrow growth extension charm, she was ALL for it. No offense Barlow, but seriously??? "Done." Well no, the spell wasn't done, but yes, she'd cast it. And hopefully have it work (cause she was pretty sure there were a few exceptions where it didn't work??) But this wasn't going to be one of them WAS IT??

"Finite incantatem," Carsyn said, flicking her wand at the girl's eyebrows. Although come to think of it, it PROBABLY just stopped the growth, but as far as cutting them back down a reasonable length, that was something different.

Bernadette's eyebrows were nearing the collar of her uniform shirt now, honestly. Why wasn't the professor stopping this??!! She was going to look like ZZ Top here in a minute!!!! Actually she might have looked like them now...

Hastily, she squeezed her eyes shut when the girl agreed to stop her eyebrow growth. She didn't know if they were still growing or not, but she was willing to part her eyebrow-drapes to peek in the mirror and see. "THANK YOU," she exhaled loudly toward the older Gryffindor. "Well, thank you for now..."

Okay. Okay. He was... he was going to try again.

After just quickly double-checking to make sure his eyebrows really hadn't grown at all since that last attempt - and becoming suddenly very Aware™ of them in the process - Kaiser shuffled his feet and got ready to have another go.

"Crinis Excresco!" Putting a little more oomph behind it this time, he again tapped one eyebrow and then the other. The effect was immediate, though not quite what he had been after. Kaiser's left eyebrow suddenly and rapidly grew, and not in the steady and casual 'oh look my eyebrows are growing how about that' way, but more in the 'is the spell work-aAHHHH' way. His eyebrow hairs had seemed to suddenly shoot from their follicles like a spell from a wand, but only long enough that he had a weird sort of curtain for his left eye.

Only the left eye, too. His right eyebrow remained unaffected. Odd.

This was... weird. Like a natural eyepatch, only... not that natural.

Kaiser flicked his head experimentally to see if he could flip the eyebrow like a person could flip their hair. Turned out he could. Flip, flip.

They were going to make their eyebrows grow? What a strange activity for Transfiguration class. The fact that this spell existed at all was quite puzzling for Avalon. Unless a person had accidentally burned or shaved off his or her eyebrows, she didn't quite understand its purpose, except for making you look incredibly silly. Professor Barlow looked absolutely ridiculous.

And she didn't really want to look like a hairy werewolf today, thank you very much. Sighing, she turned to a mirror and pointed her wand at her left eyebrow. "Crinis Excresco," she said. A slight tickling sensation brushed over her forehead. Peering closer into the mirror, she saw that her hair was indeed growing. Not in a terribly noticeable way like Professor Barlow's had done, but her eyebrow hairs were definitely growing, although slowly. The hairs grew outward toward her ear at first, then started to droop down to tickle her eyelashes. And then it just stopped. Alright, so she didn't get them as long as Barlow. But that might be a good thing, because she didn't feel like looking completely insane today.

'... if performed incorrectly the results can be disastrous.'

Lucas gulped. He could already see himself turning his hair into an entirely different colour than he was meant to and not knowing how to turn it back again. And the embarrassing part? The embarrassing part would be asking Barlow to fix it afterwards. The man was going to think he was very lame.

But the spell was growing eyebrows, which...... well, wasn't that much better but no colour changes today, right? He watched the demonstration carefully, blinking rapidly when Barlow's eyebrows grew to be a LOT longer than they should be and he...... tucked them behind his ears? Uh????

The man was really odd, wasn't he?

Lucas turned his attention to his mirror again and took out his wand. Crinis Excresco. He had to give it a shot, at least for Barlow and because he didn't want the man thinking he was slacking off. Crinis Excresco. This was okay. Crinis Excresco. "Crinis Excresco!" he called, tapping his left and then his right eyebrow.

And? Nothing.

Huh.

He glanced around the room quickly before turning back to his mirror again. How did Barlow make this look so easy?? "Crinis Excresco!" Still nothing? Was he doing something wrong? He took a deep breath and said in a louder and more urgent tone, "Crinis ExcrESCO!"

The result? A few strands from the inner tip of both eyebrows shot STRAIGHT UP.

........ uh??

Tina nodded absentmindedly at Barlow's reply to her answer. The more he talked about human transfiguration, the more apprehensive she became. There was so much potential for things to go wrong! Surely they weren't going to turn each other into animals or inanimate objects, were they? Yeah, no… she wasn't doing that. Being stuck as a rabbit or a lamp or something like that was not her idea of a good weekend!*

Her state of internal panic was only interrupted when Barlow said they'd be starting with hair. Oh, thank Merlin! Tina breathed a silent sigh of relief. Hair growth was something she could do. Granted, she'd never tried eyebrows before, but she had used a spell to lengthen her hair on occasion. Her dark eyes remained glued to Professor Barlow throughout the demonstration as she made a mental note of all the steps. Tap left, tap right, Crinis Excresco. That seemed fairly straightforward. Okay, she could do this!

Before she even attempted casting, Tina practiced the components individually, just as her dads taught her. The wand movement was pretty simple - after all, it was just tapping - but the incantation required a bit more work. Crinis Excresco," she mumbled under her breath. Crinis Excresco, Crinis Excresco…"

It was only when she was absolutely sure she had the incantation down that she turned to look in the mirror, paying special attention to her eyebrows. They looked perfectly normal, not too short, not too long… or at least she supposed they did. She'd never given it much thought until now. She studied her reflection, contemplating just how much eyebrow growth she wanted. Something long enough to make a visible difference but not quite as long as Barlow's had been. She didn't fancy the idea of going to dinner looking like Cousin Itt, and more importantly, she couldn't have her hair falling into her eyes for the rest of class! Whatever the next activity was, she'd need her vision to do it. Another inch or so should suffice.

A look of intense concentration crossed Tina's face as she looked at her reflection, envisioning her eyebrows growing just past her brow bone. Visualization was key… that and concentration! Once she had the image clear in her mind, she gently tapped her left eyebrow then her right. "Crinis Excresco," she said, focusing all her thoughts on the image of her desired eyebrow length. Was that it? Did she do it?*

Tina lowered her wand and gingerly felt her eyebrows. They were still there, and they did feel a bit bushier than before but there was only one way to tell for sure. With a deep breath, she took a cautious glance at the mirror. Her eyebrows now came to an end below her brow bone, maybe a small fraction of an inch longer than she wanted, but she was counting this as a success. She could still see, and she'd managed not to singe her eyebrows off or turn herself into a giant hairy monster. That was the most important thing!

Claudine Blaze was not impressed with her spell work. She peeked around at her classmates and saw that Bernie was freaking out, Kaiser was flipping his brows and Lucas was growing his eyelashes. What chaos for the most part. Claudine, unaffected by any of the drama, turned back to look at herself. Professor? Why would we need to have long eyebrows?’’ she wondered aloud. All this while, she kept looking in the mirror. Perhaps Barlow had a very good reason for teaching this spell, perhaps he had an embarrassing story that he was willing to tell in order to concrete her suspicions that this was a terrible spell.

“Crinis Excresco,’’ the Snakette muttered. As she did, she pictured herself with longer brows; she actually saw this image in her mind. Before she knew it, that mental image was coming through. Well, sort of. She had tapped both her brows but to her utter dismay, only the left side grew. It grew and grew until it obscured her vision. Claudine hastily showed the hair away.

She did not like what she saw in the mirror.

Who wanted mismatched brows?

Not this Slytherin.

Hence, she continued to look at herself in horror.

He had every intention of helping Bernadette, the first year with the case of never-ending eyebrows but……. well, he was prone to getting distracted and that’s exactly what happened. Barlow got distracted. He was too busy considering the question Kaiser had asked which had absolutely nothing to do with the task at hand.

“The magic and protective wards that are placed upon the castle are incredibly strong and are monitored regularly.” As it were with most magical places of interest and dwellings. But that was a whole different lesson. For now, EYEBROWS.

Kaiser seemed to be getting the hang of it, so Barlow started the usual rounds, commenting here and giving encouraging words of advice there.

“Don’t worry,” he commented when he came across both Blake and Cecelia who were still sporting their natural brows. “You’ll get there if you keep practicing.”

Claudine and her uneven eyebrows had a question for which Barlow had a very simple answer. “Why WOULDN’T you want long eyebrows?” They were great.

There was another first year with a question, and Barlow nodded at Phoebe. “It can be used on any body hair.” In fact, as a youth he’d used this exact spell to grow himself a rather impressive moustache. “Accidents often happen when wands are shoved up noses though.”

When he FINALLY came upon Bernadette and her veil of eyebrows, crisis had been averted. He had no idea Carsyn Rose had stepped in and saved the younger Gryffindor from basically drowning in her own eyebrows. As far as he was concerned, this was exactly the look she had been going for and Barlow positively beamed with delight. “You’re a NATURAL!” Except there was clearly nothing natural about those eyebrows. “Good job, keep it up!”

“That’s it, Phoebe,” he directed at Fiona, still getting names mixed up despite the continuous corrections. Oops? “And you too, Avalon.” Not an insane amount of growth, but growth nonetheless. Likewise with Tina. Or was that just how her eyebrows normally looked? Like two hairy caterpillars. He shot the seventh year a thumbs up before moving on.

“That’s an unusual look, Lucas.” He studied the Gryffindor’s reflection with a tilted head. How he’d pulled it off, Barlow honestly had no idea but it was certainly different.

“I think that’s enough for now, well done everyone! If you didn’t master it first time, don’t feel disheartened. Remember, practice makes perfect.” In most cases anyway. He didn’t offer instructions on how to return their eyebrows back to their original state… whether it be intentionally or had he just forgotten? Who knew. “We’re going to take things a step further for our next activity.”

“Before we get stuck in, I want you all to write down on a piece of parchment, a colour, a length and a hair texture.”
Simple? Simple.

“I want you to keep this PRIVATE, okay? No conferring. No peeking at your neighbours parchment.” No, that would ruin all the fun. “When you’re done, fold up your parchment and pop it in here.” A dusty bucket he’d found in the disused classroom before the lesson had started which he promptly placed in the center of the mirror semi-circle. “You’ve got FIVE minutes!”


OOC: SORRY guys, I wanted to get this up a bit sooner but RL hates me. You’re all superstars. So the MAIN ACTIVITY kicks off here. For this section, have your kiddos consider different colours, lengths, textures but DON’T reveal their actual answers in your post --- to keep things anonymous, go ahead and fill out this form:

https://forms.gle/Kcj1Pmq2Hwdgn1kA7



I’m gonna move things on in about 24 hours but if you haven’t filled in the form by then don’t worry, you can still join in on the fun.

Her eyebrows had stopped growing, which was okay, but Bernadette still had LONGER THAN USUAL eyebrows?!!! She STILL looked like a member of ZZ Top/the dwarves from The Hobbit/Cousin It/Aberforth Dumbledore!

HALP.

"SIR," Bernadette tried raising her hand with this exclamation, "Are we going to have to shave our eyebrows next to normal or is there a spell to un-grow our hair also?!" Her voice might've squeaked on the last word she said, as she was still starting to sweat a little about the chin-length of her eyebrow hair. Keep it up, he'd said. You're a NATURAL, he'd said. Go to Hogwarts, they'd said. All the kids at Hogwarts love school, they'd said. This would be fun, they'd said.

Bernadette hmmphed while she waited for an answer to her question, taking out a bit of parchment and hurriedly scratching down an ideal hairstyle. She was taking inspiration from a Muggle film she'd liked and one where the character DID NOT have wild eyebrows. She quickly deposited it in the bucket and returned to standing by her mirror, dreading the sight of her eyebrows. She had to fix those BEFORE she changed her hair, no?!

Claudine glared. What a stupid rely to her question. Then again, Barlow probably had no proper answer to give her. Annoyed because of her Professor and because of the eyebrow hairs repeatedly falling in her face, she all but stamped her feet. How did she reverse this? Was Finitie the answer to this particular spell? Did it fall into the category as Kaiser had told her in DADA?

Hang on. They were moving on? Professor, how do we reverse the spell?’’ When Barlow looked over at her, he would see a first year holding brow hairs back with a hand so that her vision was once again perfect. Bernie had asked too, but the more of them that did, the better. They were likely to get an answer.

Cluadine reached into her bag and felt around. In a particular pocket, she always carried hair ties and small clips for emergency situation. She considered this one of those situations. She found a clip and feeling annoyed more than ever, clipped the brow hairs with the hairs of her head together. Much better.

What now? Write stuff on a piece of parchment? Fine.

This was done before she neatly folded and deposited the parchment into the bucket. She was sorry for anyone who had allergies and got too close to the dusty thing.

So Cece wasn't the BEST at this growing her eyebrow hair thing, BUT she was finding the whole TRYING thing pretty enjoyable. Even the Professor seemed to think she'd get it eventually, so she was taking his word for it. There was ALSO the fact that the kids around her were being REALLY funny, like that Bernadette girl who was AWESOME at this. She didn't know why she was freaking out so much, she OUGHT to be real proud of herself. She was a PRO!

This NEXT task was exciting because it had Cecelia thinking she'd be getting a WHOLE new look, at least for a little while. Obediently ripping out a piece of parchment, she scribbled down her OWN ideas of awesome hair and folded her paper up REALLY tiny before depositing it in the bucket.

But……… why would anyone want to undo the effects so soon? This was FUN. His own eyebrows were still tucked snug behind his ears. It’d be useful during the colder, winter months. Like grow your own ear warmers.

“A simple reverte will have the effects reversed,” he informed, not just to the two youngsters with the question, but to anyone else who felt the need to RUIN THE FUN.

He supposed the next section of the lesson could prove somewhat difficult with skewed vision and didn’t really want to be sending anyone to the Hospital Wing this early on in the term.

Oh, it was a simple reverte, was it? Hmph! Bernadette hadn't even heard of that spell.... was the wand movement for it similar to Finite Incantatem? She didn't know but she was going to have to try.

"Reverte," she intoned, honestly just wanting to SEE better and also because she didn't TRUST magic yet. Her eyebrows, thankfully, cooperated with her spell, and Bernadette watched in the mirror as they slowly shrank back to normal. THERE, NOW she was ready for more fun transfigurations.

Claudine had asked the same question, and looked kinda funny with her brows pinned back in a clip. Bernie turned from watching Claudine's reflection in her mirror to looking at her head on. "Do you want help reversing yours?" she asked the Slytherin firstie.

An unusual look?

Lucas looked up from the mirror and at Barlow, his, uh, new eyebrows making him look more confused than he normally was. Did he look unusual? He probably did. BARLOW was saying that he looked unusual. "I promise I won't keep it." He reached up and tried to flatten the few strands down, maybe get them to bend down over his current eyebrows so that they didn't look too weird. Was it working? He had no idea.

But they were moving onto something else so the fourth year reached up and reverted his eyebrows back to what they should be. If there was one thing he knew it was that he didn't want to keep....... uh, whatever it was that had happened to his eyebrows before.

Reaching into his bag, Lucas took out a spare piece of parchment. Hair colour, length and texture. Okay. Uh. They could be anything, right? He was going to say so and pick anything that came to his head first. It didn't matter what it was and if it was a ~ look ~ or not but it was going down on the parchment. Maybe Barlow would like the weirdness on here.

When the last word was written down, he folded it up and carefully placed it in the bucket. There.

So the spell worked on ANY body hair? Was her nose hair currently pooling around her ankles, or what? Phoebe danced from side to side, trying to catch sight of her own nose hair. How bad was it? "Can someone tell me if my nose hair is considerably longer than normal? Please? Like on a scale of one to Rapunzel?"

She was probably distracting the class, right? Phoebe hopped over to write down the answer to the Professor's questions, but she needed HELP with her nose hair situation immediately.

Okay, well, Kaiser was going to take that as a yes. The castles were built using magic. Did that include the bricks? Had the materials been duplicated or transfigured? Were the bricks held into place by magic? How did they know they had checked ALL the magic of the buildings when they were checking things and keeping them ~up to date~ or whatever?

Kaiser had actually opened his mouth to ask just that, but Barlow had moved on. Next time, then.

Take things further? Yikes. Kaiser wasn't entirely sure he liked the sound of that. He was having fun flipping his one long eyebrow, though it was giving him a bit of a sore neck. Clearly the spell's fault.

After the next instruction, Kaiser rooted around in his bag for some parchment and a quill. Making sure his neighbour - hi Eiji - couldn't see it, he wrote down the first thing he could think of for each of the things Barlow had mentioned, then balled up the parchment and threw it from where he stood straight into the bucket. Nice, 10 points to Kaiser. And with one eye covered, too.

Speaking of which, he pointed his wand at his long eyebrow again. "Reverte." Yeah, call him mainstream, but ultimately he preferred the natural eyebrow look.

As for the Phoebe kid? Kaiser cleared his throat loudly to try and get her attention, and with a jab of his index finger, pointed towards the mirror that was nearest to her.

Tina was so absorbed in her work that she almost missed the thumbs-up Barlow gave her. She turned around just in time to catch it and gave a small smile in reply before turning back to the mirror. Not a bad start, she thought as she scrutinized her reflection. Perhaps she'd try the spell again on her own time, but for now, she didn't want a thick curtain of eyebrow hair hanging in her face while she was trying to concentrate. Besides, they were moving on anyway.

When Barlow said they were taking things a step further, Tina initially thought they would be learning another spell or practicing this one on a different area of the body, so the instructions came as a bit of a surprise. Blink, blink. Well, that went in a completely different direction than expected! As soon as Barlow mentioned dropping parchment in the bucket, she had an pretty good idea where this was going. They were going to draw parchment at random and give themselves the hair color, length, and texture written on them, weren't they?

Tina took out a spare scrap of parchment and started writing. For the color, she chose one of her favorites; for the length and texture she chose something at random. As she wrote, she vaguely overheard Barlow say the counterspell was reverted. Good to know. She filed that bit of information into her brain for use later. She wasn't going to reverse the effects just yet. She would wait until the end of the lesson at least, but there was no way she was going to dinner looking like this!

Tina looked over her parchment and, feeling satisfied with her answers, dropped it into the bucket. Okay, so now what?
