Default Care of Magical Creatures Lesson ❧

CARE OF MAGICAL CREATURES LESSON


The Care of Magical Creatures are was still a renovation in progress. The grass was overgrown and patchy like a checkered quilt knitted by someone who had no business owning a pair of knitting needles. While the creatures had, by this point in time, mostly reaccumulated to their Hogwarts home, Mathys found himself convinced that the very vegetation of the grounds had turned wild in the absence of wizarding kind.

Though such sentiments were wasted on the next hour and a half ahead. There was important lessons to be learned and a very special creature for students to engage with.

A hodgepodge assortment of wooden crates and hale bales lay in a circular formation around a central table where a decorative bronze birdcage sat and dotted within the cage a few small birds with elegant blue speckled feathers that caught the afternoon sun just so. Though something seemed amiss with them. One in particular who was not hopping from branch like the others, but rather had nestled itself to the floor of the cage.

Mathys himself stands beside the cage wearing bold robin’s egg blue robes that helped highlight his frosty, yet some how soft, stare.

Come on in and take a seat on any of the bails of hay or crates. The lesson will begin shortly.

"Thanks, Claudine," Isla replied. She still didn't know her second year classmate all that well, but she really liked the girl and hoped one day they'd be friends. At the sound of the professor's voice, the first year looked up. The song of a phoenix sounded really complicated, yet interesting all at the same time. After watching the Jobberknoll die, Isla was a little worried they'd have to suffer through the Phoenix's Lament, but the professor seemed sure that they'd hear the Exalt instead. It sounded like it was just a matter of doing a really good job at keeping the bird happy, just like they were doing right now.

They now had their materials for the rest of the lesson, which Claudine had accepted for them. So who wanted to go first? "Well, I've already had a turn feeding the phoenix a golden leaf, so maybe Kaiser, Kodee, or Chloe?" she suggested. The older ones had done a really good job of supervising and encouraging the younger ones, but she thought it was only right for them to get a turn, too.

Naya watched as Heath fed the phoenix with incredible care. She couldn’t help but smile. At the same time, she was listening to the professor as he talked more about the bird. She wondered what the Phoenix’s Exalt would sound like and if it really had the positive impact that he described. What Naya definitely did not want to hear was the Phoenix Lament. Hearing the dying jobberknoll was about all she could tolerate in one day.

As Heath was finishing up his turn at feeding, they were given another task to perform. Now they were going to groom the phoenix’s feathers. Naya hoped that she would be gentle enough so that she would not hurt or upset the creature.

When the professor came around with the bowl of beeswax, Naya looked at her partners. Since no one made a move, she accepted the bowl and brush for the three of them. Then she held the items out and said, “Who wants to go first?”

”Those gold leaf things must be real tasty. The phoenix seems to really like ‘em!” And though this meant Cece PROBABLY wouldn’t get to see the magical pellets, she was still pretty happy about this whole experience.

When the Professor came around, the second year accepted a bowl of beeswax and a brush for the group with a big smile. ”Bet this will feel really nice on your feathers,” She said cheerfully to their phoenix before looking around at the others. ”Anyone want to give this part a go?” She would’ve GLADLY went first, but she got to be first feeding the bird, and fair was fair.

Before he could listen out for the younger boy’s response, Nostredame was speaking directly to them and offering the boy a vial of ~something~ that was bound to help. The Gryffindor couldn’t help but wonder what exactly was in that vial but this didn’t seem like a good time to ask.

And they were forming a group? That was....... convenient.

A small blush rose in his cheeks when Nostredame gave him a few pats on his shoulder but he tried to not draw attention to it. Instead, he gave the man a smile before turning his attention back to the younger boy, who was saying something to him. "You’re welcome! I’m glad it’s helped." He was also very glad that there was no more vomit around either. "Do you want to stay sitting down for this activity?" he asked, reaching into his bag for a pair of gloves and strapping them onto his ha-

Was that a Phoenix?!

Lucas’ green eyes followed the bright bird as it flew around and around, higher and higher, before it landed elegantly on the hay bale in front of them. A large part of him wanted to give the Phoenix a name - a sort of companion for Dani the elephant - but this....... didn’t seem like the time. Besides, the vomiting boy was now calling over the other members of their group: Nina and...... someone else he’d seen around before.

"You go first, Cece," Bernie breathed, her eyes still aglow with the magic of the Phoenix in front of her. "I'm gonna give him--- or her," she still wasn't sure which, "another leaf!"

EKERKLJLJEHEHELHEHE so EXCITING! Bernie took her eyes off the majestic bird for just a moment so that she could carefully pluck a gold leaf up with her tweezers, but then was back to adoring and grinning and giggling softly at the phoenix as it acempted her proffered treat.

Could they feed phoenixes EVERY class? It was just... oddly soothing, and the birds were so pretty to look at.

So far nothing was forgotten which is absolutely great.

She watched Catherine take the leaf box. Check.
The phoenix has now landed. Check.

Jillian was quite at awe with this bird. It is quite a beauty! This is probably her first time to see this bird near and she astonished at the color pattern of their feather. Yes, it is truly a magnificent creature. If only she would encounter the phoenix once again so she could paint it. How awesome would that be?

Okay... Jillian! FOCUS!

Next would be the feeding of the phoenix. Jillian had her tweezers ready on hand and when the third year, Ravenclaw asked about who goes first she glanced at her. "Do you want to go first?" she said whilst handing her the tweezers. Jillian can go second.
Avalon couldn't help but smile as the Slytherin handed her the tweezers. "I'd love to!" She wasn't going to offer to go first, but as long as someone else asked her, she figured it would be okay. This was pretty exciting stuff, after all. Phoenixes were one of her favorite magical creatures.

She gently plucked a gold leaf from the box and offered it hesitantly to the bird, trying to keep her hand as steady as possible. The phoenix bent its head slightly to sniff the leaf before snapping it up with its beak. It chewed the leaf happily, and then seemed to look at Avalon as if to ask for more. "I think it's still hungry! Who wants to go next?" she asked, placing the tweezers back on the crate.

A flourish of bright blue signaled the professor's arrival. "Merci, Professor," Avalon said, taking the bowl of beeswax and brush. It smelled oddly calming - sweet and pleasant. She held onto it while the rest of her group took turns feeding the bird.

doesn't proofread tweets | #wrongaboutcereal | plot twist | #thefloorislava |#HouseNATARIANA

There were a few things Nina was very displeased with. One being that she was officially being made to group up with the vomit boy. It was already horrible enough to be put in a group composed entirely of students younger than her (ugh, people were going to make fun!!!), but if the Hufflepuff vomited anywhere near her, she would surely vomit as well. Sympathy barfing. Nina was not immune to it. The second issue she had with this activity was how close they would have to get to a real phoenix. Couldn't they just... use the textbook? Creatures are entirely unpredictable. This could be dangerous!

And so when she moved to join her group, she stood a good 3 feet away from all of her group mates. It was nothing personal, just precautionary.

Quite naturally she squealed when the bird made its landing near them and stepped another foot away from the group. As the eldest member of the group it was obviously her duty to.... watch over their collective effort and ensure that everything went smoothly. That's the only reason why she was watching from a distance and it had absolutely nothing to do with being all sorts of scared and nervous. Obviously.

With all this in mind, she would NOT be the one to feed the phoenix. She'd leave that up to the rest of the group. Instead, she politely took one of the wooden bowls of warm beeswax (ew, gross!) and a brush from their Professor. That was her contribution.

Tom smiled as he watched Naya take the wax, he was glad because he still was shaken up from earlier, he then listened when his new friend asked who wants to go first. It took him all his willpower not to go me... me... me, but he managed it in the end.

Tom took the brush and he painted a thin layer of beeswax on the phoenix tail, seriously it was so cool, how much did a phoenix cost because after today he totally wanted to have one as soon as possible.

Tom took the first turn at brushing the phoenix. When he was finished, Naya decided to go next. She took the brush from her housemate and dipped it into the warm beeswax. “Alright Mr. Phoenix, are you ready for some more brushing?” Turning to Heath, she said, “I think we need to know his name too”. Her attention back on the phoenix, she said, “What is your name little birdie?” Knowing the professor, she was sure he had to have one.

Back to the task at hand, Naya gently placed the brush on the phoenix’s tail feather and began to do her job. Slowly and softly, she moved the brush across his feather. Once she felt that she had completely covered the every spot completely, she stepped back. Handing the brush to Heath, she said, “It’s your turn now”. Hopefully their TLC would make the phoenix feel better.

Originally oblivious to the vomiting that had occurred as Blake approached his group clustered around the bale ..... he felt like he could smell it....... he stomach churned involuntarily. ..... Take one last deep breath he moved into the group.

"Hey All, here's the leaf, I see we have the beeswax already to." He motioned toward the older girl who was already holding the bees wax. "I'm Blake for those who don't know." He had seen the majority of the these students out and about the castle, but had he ever really talked to any of them? Probably not... or if he did .. did he remember?

"I'll feed him, if some one else will do the tail feather thing." Take the delicate tweezers out and gently taking a gold leaf he offered it to the phoenix. Who much to Blake's delight took it willingly and ate it.

Mathys was rather engrossed observing the students interacting with the majestic beasts, so much so that he was neglecting to check the time and it was not until one of the phoenixes squawked gently at the French man as he made his third pass around the circle that he even thought to.

"Ah, oui. Zank you, Luminos. You are entirely correct," he chortled with the crimson bird before clapping his hands together thrice, loudly. "I am afraid zat ees all ze time we have for today. Please finish up ze task you are currently performing and return ze supplies to me." Mathys waited a few moments for this to be done, absently tapping his wrist as if doing so would make the students move faster. It would be in poor form for them to be late to their next lesson, but they were certainly tucking into the time between lessons at the moment. Hopefully none had Divination next period (they were unlikely to make it all the way to that tower on time).

The phoenixes, as if on cue, took flight once more and took turns circling the golden cage while one-by-one they swooped back inside and mounted their perches. Cooing softly with them, he closed the door and addressed the class while they were packing up.

"Ziss ees not ze last you will see of ze phoenixes. In fact, you will have ze opportunity to work intimately with ziss flock for ze remaindair of ze term. Details on ziss long term assignment will be forthcoming. Now, pack up your sings and hurry to your next subject."

OOC: class dismissed! Thank you for coming and participating (you may post your student leaving if you wish!). Long term assignment details will be posted in this thread at a later date.

”If you insist,” Cecelia responded with a grin. Truth be told, she felt better taking her turn first since Bernie had suggested it and the second year carefully dipped the brush in the beeswax. Once it was good and covered, she gently began to brush the wax on their phoenix’s tail feathers. ”I still can’t believe we’re doing this!” She couldn’t wait to write home to her mom about it.

And then it was time to go. Was she ready to pack up? Not really. She was actually really enjoying herself. Maybe she could visit with the phoenixes another time is she asked really nicely. Maybe.

”Good job guys!” They’d done PRETTY great as far as she was concerned.

Once everything was in order, the second year shouldered her bag and offered the professor a wave. ”Bye sir! Thanks for class!”

Chloe McCarthy was off her game for sure. She was good at creatures and the fact that her group hadn't gotten through everything discouraged her and she felt she failed for the younger ones. Just as she had lifted a leaf for the bird she heard the professor call them to end class.

No, no she wasn't done yet, she didn't like that she wasn't done yet. This was so hard to just be done when this gorgeous Pheonix was in front of them and now they had to go to another class. She let the bird take the leaf anyway not wanting to waste it before she looked at the group.

"Sorry we didn't get any further today." Gloves were already coming off and she started putting things away.
