Default DADA Lesson #1


Making your way through the third floor, you'll see the door to the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom. Once inside you'll see the lights were absent, but it isn't dark. Why somehow it appears as if you're walking through a sunny forest into an open clearing where a number of tree stumps are present. On one of the tree stumps, you'll see Professor Madigan sitting. Behind the Professor in the distance, you'll see regular trees with little spots on them. What could those be for? Better have a sit until then.

------
OOC: The lesson has already started. Want to join? Sure thing! Just make sure your post is continuing from the latest post as if they were in class all along.

Where are we at?


Q1 - Greetings + First question.
A1 - Responses + Learning Arundo. Time to practice.
A2 - Responses + Target Practice.

Reuben hadn't been paying that much attention to the Professor when he entered as he was so much more curious about the forest they had entered. Which meant he'd been paying SUPER close attention to his surroundings and was therefore the perfect person to answer this question!

"The spots, sir! On the trees back there," he answered enthusiastically, once he'd been called on. With dramatic gestures, he indicated the trees in the distance. "I don't know much about trees, but it looks weird." Not as weird as the steam that was coming from the young boys ears, though.

With a grimace, Reuben slapped his hands over his ears.

Luther slipped through the door as quietly as he could but his glowing hands made it very almost impossible to be stealthy. But then, the classroom made Luther forget about his glowing hands. There was a whole forest IN the classroom. Luther has seen expanded indoors before, like the greenhouse back at home. However, this was different from anything he had seen before.

Thinking about the Professor's question Luther looked around to find something out of ordinary. Then he raised his hand to be recognized and then spoke "The air is too... I don't know how to describe it but it is almost too calm, Professor." Then added a bit quietly, "I am Luther Starriver, by the way, sir." trying to hide his glowing hands in his pockets.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Ash was probably at her best today- she was slightly distracted by the flowers but that was much better than being majorly distracted by staring at a wall and thinking about how terrible everything was. She raised her hand as soon as she thought of something to say. "Other people or animals leave tracks and signs in a forest. So you might be able to hear one nearby, or see where one of them has been walking. Much of the time it doesn't matter, but sometimes it's a sign to stay away." Or, if you were looking for danger(some people were), a sign to keep going. She fell silent, then spoke up again with a new, mostly-related idea. "I've been leaving a trail of flowers so it's obvious where I've been." She pointed at her flowers, which led from where she entered the woods to her tree stump.

She had simply smiled in form of greeting and nodded her head to the Professor when she had arrived. Lisa was still working on the bubbles and controlling them as best as she could. This meant limiting how much she spoke. At this rate, maybe she ought to learn sign language? It was something she had spent time reading in the library instead of…. revising for OWLS. She rubbed her hands together before bringing them to her mouth to blow hot air on them. She was quietly surprised to see no bubbles escape this time.

Huh. Maybe she was safe?

She raised her hand to answer the first part of the Professor’s questions. “I can’t hear anything.. Usually there’s some noises in a forest… but it’s quiet?

Lisa was really stretching to find an answer on this one. Instead, she was more preoccupied by the bubbles escaping.

Just as he was about to burst into conversation however, the lesson started. Eager not to get another detention under his belt, quickly turned his attention to the lesson at hand. “I mean I hope it’s wild professor. I hate lessons where we just write.” Was he supposed to say that to a professor? Oops. Never mind. Time for the lesson to move on, quickly.

Listening to the Professors words carefully, Hooper took a moment to actually really think before he answered out loud. “Uhhh….honestly Professor, I think it’s kind of weird that there are a load of tree stumps around here. Like, who cut these trees? Why these trees? Why leave the stumps? If we have magic, surely whoever did this would take the whole tree? And what’s happened to the rest of the tree Professor, huh? HUH?” It was all very suspicious.
The Professor too wasn't a fan of writing as he smiled kindly at that comment. It was unfortunately required... but not today luckily. "Very valid questions," Madigan nodded, "It is important to question as much as possible to remain vigilant no matter the circumstance," Excellent questions.

Once, there had even been a tiny tornado but that had occurred when she had been alone in the girl’s bathroom. She needed to talk to Caes, to ask him if anything funny was happening with him. However, she did notice things happening with some of her classmates - the flowers and what not. Were they all connected??

The Slytherin sat there in moody silence, watching all the happenings all around her. Right now, Aria just wanted to crawl back into bed and take a nap. It was too late for that now for Madigan had gotten started. What would make the ‘forest’ they were in suspicious? Had she felt something off outdoors? Aria thought then cautiously raised her hand, her fingers curled into her palms so that she made a fist. No usual wiggling fingers today.

“Once I was out in the yard at home working on a project when I thought I could feel eyes on me. You know that weird feeling you get that you’re being watched? There didn’t seem to be anyone around but it was just my brother. He thought it would be fun to jump out at me to scare me plus dump glitter on my head.” Aria rolled her eyes. Caes was so immature! “Anyway, from then I know to pay better attention to my surroundings whenever I observe that feeling.”
What an eventful memory, "My goodness, it's a good thing you were aware of that feeling in particular. It's best to never ignore your own suspicions." Very good response.

“Sounds…a forest shouldn’t be too quiet like there was no life within it.” Because most if not all forests were biomes teeming with some sort of living things. “If the creature inhabitants of a forest are quiet…or if they are actively reacting way too loudly…something is up.” They were often very much aware of dangers before their human counterparts were, especially those considered more prey in worry of being in potential trouble.
"Well deduced, Master Atreyu-Rehman." Too much of anything rarely ever ended up good.

"Good, its important to spot anything out of the ordinary in the distance incase others are unable to see it," Nodding in approval.

Because how COOL would it be to know that spell and be able to successfully cast it! Probably not on other people. Her chaos had yet to get to THAT type of a level.

Anyways.

Questions. The most booooooring part of lessons. Primarily because it was SO difficult to sit still, which was probably why History of Magic was where she struggled the most. This was DADA. Couldn't they just... jump right into it. Who needed theory?? Or like... proper application or any of those deets. BUT she'd play the game. Majority of the most obvious answers were taken, outside of the fact that... this wasn't the real outdoors which was VERY sus if you asked her. But instead of pointing that out, she decided to expand on Hooper's answer because she'd already been thinking it too. "The fact that only THESE trees are cut IS very concerning, but not because why THESE so much as... why not those?" She pointed towards the ones with the little dots. "Do they house bowtruckles? Is there mistletoe up there and just like... an infestation of Nargles?"
"Very valid questions, it's good to question why something or the lack of something is happening," Nodding in approval.

The warm smile that had been on her face was still there as she pondered over the question that was being asked. Most of what she wanted to say had already been said. Which left her to really think even more. Back to when she had first walked in. Raising her hand she gave her answer, "Well one of the things I did notice was when I first walked in how light it was even through I was clearly walking through a forest. Shouldn't it have been.. darker?" She hadn't given it much thought at the time but now that she was it did seem a little odd.
"Interesting point there," Professor Madigan hadn't actually considered the usual sign of safety with light being viewed as potentially threatening. "It's valuable to always think and acknowledge unusual standards taking place."

The Professor couldn't hide a smile from the enthusiasm, "Very good spotting, Master Darcy-Stemp," Nodding in approval. He did notice him close his ears so suddenly. Hm? Was the young lad bashful at compliments in public? Poor lad.

If the glowing hands weren't one sign for a new entry in the classroom, the brief view of outside the classroom appeared in the corner of Professor Madigan's eyes as a student slipped in. "Glad to see you join us at last Master Starriver, that will, unfortunately, cost you 5 points on the late entry," Though he did respect the young lad's ownership of the action, along with his answer, "The quiet before the storm.. That's an excellent sign."

Lisa was really stretching to find an answer on this one. Instead, she was more preoccupied by the bubbles escaping.
"The quiet before a storm is a good sign to notice," Professor Madigan nodded. He would've added bubbles escaping as well but well, did the class need any more worries?


"Excellent everyone," Professor Madigan said, even those quietly observing were appreciated. Now it was time to move on. "As a number of you have noticed, the spots in the distance of the tree will be a focus for a number of you today." How so? "We will be using an Arrow shooting spell on some targets today." As for why, "As I'm sure you could picture or have experienced, casting a spell on the enemy will do well but things escalate and can be life-threatening. This arrow spell in particular is one of the many variations. Arundo. It will send an icy-blue arrow and depending on where it hits the target they will be paralyzed. Say you use Arundo aiming at another one's arm, well that arm is unable to move unless the arrow is removed. It won't leave a wound or risk or serious ailments. Think of it as using the body-binding spell Petrificus Totalus but on a smaller part of the body." That should explain the gist of it.

"Now repeat after me, Arundo... Ah-roon-doe," Pausing to hear the class repeat it, "The wand movement is a curved checkmark starting from the longer end. To avoid any accidental shots on others, let's aim at the ground in front of you. If done correctly you'll see an icy-blue arrow that will remain in the ground. It's okay if you don't get it the first time as I imagine a number of... predicaments could make this more of a challenge, the arrow may break off immediately in that case," If things didn't turn out as expected well, that bridge will have to be crossed eventually.

Professor Madigan then made the curved check mark symbol, "Arundo," At the ground almost immediately if one didn't blink could see an icy-blue arrow shoot out onto the ground sticking up from the grass. To those curious, "And yes, it is possible to send a stream of them at once, but that requires more time of practice," More than what can be covered in a single lesson, unfortunately. "Now, it's your turn to give it a try."

--
OOC: So now you can practice the Arrow-shooting spell, saying it and then performing it on the ground. You're free to partner with another if you want, but can easily do it alone if your character wishes. Class will continue in at least 48 hours, but feel free to ask Professor Madigan any questions in between.

Hooper grinned wide as the Professor agreed with his questioning! Like, he’d actually agreed with him! This was unprecedented. Well, maybe not that unprecedented but still pretty rare. With a wide small plastered across his face, the third year sat up a little straighter and listened that little bit more intently to the rest of the answers of the other children. Another even followed suit and questioned the cutting of the tress too!

Not letting his smile drop too much when it became clear that the lesson had very little to do with the actual stumps they were sitting on, Hopper sat and listened as the professor explained what the lesson was actually about. It didn’t take too much explaining for his enthusiasm to return however when he learned that they were actually going to be shooting arrows? How cool was that! With his wand already in his hand, Hooper clutched it tighter as he continued to listen, only putting it away when they were told the spell so as not to accidentally impale someone with an arrow. Instead, he chose to repeat the words under his breath so that he’d have it mastered by the time they needed to use it. “Ah-roon-doe,” he chanted, again and again until it almost became a tongue twister.

“Ah-roon-doe.”

“Ah-roooooon-doooe…ooops. No. That’s not it. Ah-roon-doe.”

After nailing the wording of the spell, pulled his wand out and turned back to Yukie. “Do you mind checking to see if my wand movement is okay?” Aiming his wand at the ground, Hooper tried his best to replicate the wand movement that the professor had shown them. “Cuuuuurved….cuuuurved…curve….,” he repeated out loud, as if willing the wand movement to be correct. His checkmark however seemed to resemble more of a weird question mark. Oops.

Spots? What spots? Aria squinted into the distance, her eyes widening at the spotted trees. OH! She had missed those completely! No matter, they were noticed now and she thought that the spots made the trees look sick; like they were diseased. But target practice sounded amazing and Aria was confident she’d be able to be decent at the activity. Even more, the effects of the spell were quite fascinating to her.

“Ah-roon-doe! Ah-roon-doe! Ah-roon-doe! Arundo!” The sixth year repeated as Madigan had instructed. That was an easy incantation in her opinion. The wand movement? Well, that seemed a little complicated to her. Nevertheless, Aria was beyond impressed at Madigan’s demonstration and could hardly wait to get started herself.

“Arundo!” Carefully, Aria tried to trace out the wand movement she had practiced seconds ago. Directing it at the ground, there was an icy blue arrow alright, but it just wasn’t a proper arrow? It hadn’t been fully formed. “Arundo!” Another unsuccessful attempt. “Arundo!’’ This time, another strong burst of wind happened. Aria was so startled that her wand fell to the ground and looking around with widened eyes, she realised that there was a tiny funnel of wind circling her feet. “No, no no! Stop! STOP!!!’’ she muttered frantically, panicking because… WHAT IF THE TORNADO GOT BIGGER??? The result of her pleas? The tornado danced about at an increased speed.

Least it wasn't hornets.

Well, now seemed like a great time to begin. The small smile remaining on the Professor's face before he gestured the entire room. "Excellent, welcome back everyone." Not expecting any returned greetings to it. "As previously discussed, the importance of Defensive magic is preparing and learning how to face and endure a challenge. As I'm sure a number of you have been wondering what we're doing here instead of the real outdoors.." Letting it sink in for a moment. "Given the colder climate of the season, today's challenge would be more accommodating in a sectioned and sunny environment," And it would temper the outside danger factor, ahem.

"What are some of the signs you can pinpoint that would make this forest suspicious? Has there been a time outdoors where you felt something was off?" To start it off. Whether they could answer one or the other or possibly both.
[/color]
Her face was still burning hot with embarrassment when she returned ther professor's smile. At least Prof Madigan didn't see the butterflies circuling around his head as something worth taking away points for. "Yes, the butterflies liven up the room," Bella murmured in response before retreating to find herself a tree stump to sit on. Why did she have the 'power' to make butterflies appear suddenly? She had to have been pranked right? But by who?

Questions still bubbled around her head as Prof Madigan got the lesson underway. They were inside to accomadate for the colder climate. That was awfully thoughtful of him. Raising her eyes to really look and listen to the forest Bella raised her hand to say thoughtfully "The forest is too quiet. There are no birds chirping, trees russtling or anything. It feels off and eerie even. Also the trees have peculiar spots on them. Does the spots mean that they are marking a trail or is it because they are sick?"


A few minutes later it was revealed that the spots on the trees was for target practice for when they practiced the icy-blue arrow spell Arundo. Getting excited for learning something new Bella sat up straighter on her tree stump and repeated loudly as she practiced the incantation even though it had some resemble to petrificus totalus. It'd be nifty in a sticky situation though. "Ah-rooooooooon-doeeeeeee. Ah-roon-doe. Ah-roooooooooooooooooon-doeeeeeeeeeeechoooo." Ooops! A butterfly had followed her over from Prof Madigan and had now landed on Bella's nose and was making her sneeze. Waving the butterfly away she tried again hoping to not sneeze and cause a new swarm of butterflies to appear on her command. "Ah-roon-doe. Ah-roon-deeee. No it's Ah-roon-doe." Feeling confident that she had got the incantation down she began practicing the wandmovement. It had looked so simple when Professor Madigan did it, but her curved checkmarks looked more like small i's. Waving and waving she finally braved testing it out aming her wand at the ground as she cast "Arundo!". Something bluish arrow-like spluttered out of the tip of her wand, and Bella started to beam with happiness. Maybe she was on the right track?

Oooooooo Shooting arrows what fun. "I used to shoot archery at home you know." Maxine added moving her arms in the bow position pretending to shoot, she was a decent shot, though Vera was better.

"Arundo" Maxine said, she was tested out the sound of the spell before actually trying it out with her wand. "Ah-roon-doe". Okay well that sounded right, and then doing the curved motion with her wand hand a couple times without saying it. Okay check and check, she was ready.

Maxine made the curved check mark symbol, and half shouted with gusto "Arundo". To her shock a ice-blue arrow came shooting of her wand straight into the ground!! Holy Moly she had done it on her first try!!! That never happens ... but was it a fluke? She prepared for another try to make sure it wasn't just beginners luck and looked over to see if anyone else had done it yet.

That's when she noticed Aria having a bit of some wind trouble and not the flatulence kind . "I don't think that's the right spell mate." She said in her direction.

Lisa would take an okay answer. She nodded in response to Professor Madigan before vowing to herself to come up with the best possible answer for the next question. Yes, she’d manage it.

Arundo, she wrote in her notebook as she listened to the explanation of what the spell could do. Pronounced: Ah-roon-doe (like doe a deer). Lifting her quill just a centimeter off of the page, Lisa listened to him speak. Will send an icy-blue arrow and depending on where it hits the target they will be paralyzed like a body-binding spell (Petrificus Totalus). Won’t leave a wound or serious ailments.

She watched him demonstrate the spell and stopped to write down the movement. Reverse check mark (left to right check mark but start right to left) motion paired with incantation.

Alright. She was ready to try.

Lisa lifted her wand and pointed it at the ground in front of her. She started from the far right at a high point. Then from that point, she took her wand down the slope diagonally (right to left) before it reached the bottom. Then she lifted her wand up on a similar slope directed right to left upwards. She practiced it thrice more just focused on the wand movements until she was satisfied.

Ah-roon-do. No, uh-ROON-DOE. AHH-ROON-DOE. Not quite. Ah-Roon-Doe. Yes. Ah-Roon-Doe. Arundo,” she spoke. With each word, she found herself becoming more and more confident.

Now to try to pair it together. The first attempt, nothing. The second attempt, also nothing. Third and fourth was the same. However, the fifth attempt was very successful. “Arundo,” paired with the checkmark (drawing from right to left) motion aaaand the hint of a faint icy blue arrow tip appeared from her wand.

That's an excellent sign."
SPOILER!!: Arundo

"As a number of you have noticed, the spots in the distance of the tree will be a focus for a number of you today." How so? "We will be using an Arrow shooting spell on some targets today." As for why, "As I'm sure you could picture or have experienced, casting a spell on the enemy will do well but things escalate and can be life-threatening. This arrow spell in particular is one of the many variations. Arundo. It will send an icy-blue arrow and depending on where it hits the target they will be paralyzed. Say you use Arundo aiming at another one's arm, well that arm is unable to move unless the arrow is removed. It won't leave a wound or risk or serious ailments. Think of it as using the body-binding spell Petrificus Totalus but on a smaller part of the body." That should explain the gist of it.

"Now repeat after me, Arundo... Ah-roon-doe," Pausing to hear the class repeat it, "The wand movement is a curved checkmark starting from the longer end. To avoid any accidental shots on others, let's aim at the ground in front of you. If done correctly you'll see an icy-blue arrow that will remain in the ground. It's okay if you don't get it the first time as I imagine a number of... predicaments could make this more of a challenge, the arrow may break off immediately in that case," If things didn't turn out as expected well, that bridge will have to be crossed eventually.

Professor Madigan then made the curved check mark symbol, "Arundo," At the ground almost immediately if one didn't blink could see an icy-blue arrow shoot out onto the ground sticking up from the grass. To those curious, "And yes, it is possible to send a stream of them at once, but that requires more time of practice," More than what can be covered in a single lesson, unfortunately. "Now, it's your turn to give it a try."

--
OOC: So now you can practice the Arrow-shooting spell, saying it and then performing it on the ground. You're free to partner with another if you want, but can easily do it alone if your character wishes. Class will continue in at least 48 hours, but feel free to ask Professor Madigan any questions in between.

Luther cursed the poltergeist once again. It was not his fault that he was late. He was trying to dim the glowing but whenever he lost focus, the glow returned with full power. With a sigh, he said simply "Sorry Professor." and tried to let go of his indignation and cursed the poltergeist once more and then thought 'It is a fun trick at least.'

With his hands tucked in his pockets, Luther listened to Professor Madigan intently. Then he quietly mouthed the incantation slowly. After a few tries, he tried it vocally without his wand, "Ah-roon-doh. Ah-ron-dough. Ah-roon-doe. Arundo.", he did not want to harm anyone, 'Now that would be my mistake.' he thought and chuckled to himself.

When he was sure he got the incantation right, Luther took his wand out and pointed at the ground. Then without saying the incantation, he moved his wand just like the Professor described. At least that's what Luther thought he did. An idle thought ran through Luther's mind 'The glow looks good while I am casting to be honest.' In his 9th attempt, not that Luther counted, a pale almost transparent arrow shoot out from his wand. A proud smile appeared on his face. Then he noticed that his hair was falling down his face and he was playing with the ribbon in his left hand. 'I must have untied it while trying to cast the spell.' thought Luther and then he started to cast Arundo again and again where the evidence of his success stayed stuck.

Sooo the spell was pretty cool visually, but also a little scary. Imagine one of those arrows actually coming at you! Or a whole bunch of them! Lydia didn't like that mental image. A professional dueler, she would never be. Not that she didn't already know that - even after four years now in the magical world, she struggled with a lot of spells anyway. But this lesson just solidified it further in her mind.

Still...she needed to participate and stuff. At least the bare minimum so she didn't get called out for not trying. Sooo...

"Ah-roon-do. Ah-roon-doe. AH-roon-doe? Ah-ROON-doe? Ah-roon-DOE?" She practiced saying it several times, with different emphasis and even attempting the wand movement - a check mark sort of movement? - but the final syllable prompted something in the back of her mind.

"Ah-roon-doe." Doe, a deer, a female deer. Re, a drop of golden sun. Mi...

And it was hard to stop a song once it was stuck in her head. And it just distracted her with thoughts of the music room, and how she'd rather be there than in a lesson. Uggghhh.

"Arundo." Check mark. Feathers.

...Feathers??? Like....like the feathers that would go on the end of an actual arrow. But no actual arrow, icy blue or otherwise. Just...her wand had conjured a few feathers that were now floating delicately toward the ground.

Ti, a drink with jam and bread, that will bring us back to Do...

Siiiigh. Why was magic so difficult?

The Professor circled around the area to observe the students making their process. Some seemed to have picked up almost immediately, which made him proud.

Another even followed suit and questioned the cutting of the tress too!

Not letting his smile drop too much when it became clear that the lesson had very little to do with the actual stumps they were sitting on, Hopper sat and listened as the professor explained what the lesson was actually about. It didn’t take too much explaining for his enthusiasm to return however when he learned that they were actually going to be shooting arrows? How cool was that! With his wand already in his hand, Hooper clutched it tighter as he continued to listen, only putting it away when they were told the spell so as not to accidentally impale someone with an arrow. Instead, he chose to repeat the words under his breath so that he’d have it mastered by the time they needed to use it. “Ah-roon-doe,” he chanted, again and again until it almost became a tongue twister.

“Ah-roon-doe.”

“Ah-roooooon-doooe…ooops. No. That’s not it. Ah-roon-doe.”

After nailing the wording of the spell, pulled his wand out and turned back to Yukie. “Do you mind checking to see if my wand movement is okay?” Aiming his wand at the ground, Hooper tried his best to replicate the wand movement that the professor had shown them. “Cuuuuurved….cuuuurved…curve….,” he repeated out loud, as if willing the wand movement to be correct. His checkmark however seemed to resemble more of a weird question mark. Oops.
Though he appeared to chosen to ask another classmate, the Professor couldn't assisting as well, "You're getting there, Master Ridley-Rush," A kind smile for the young lad, "Just a little less curve on the movement like so-" This time Madigan performed the wand movement of the curved check mark at a slower place. Once and then twice. An arrow appearing on the ground each time.

No matter, they were noticed now and she thought that the spots made the trees look sick; like they were diseased. But target practice sounded amazing and Aria was confident she’d be able to be decent at the activity. Even more, the effects of the spell were quite fascinating to her.

“Ah-roon-doe! Ah-roon-doe! Ah-roon-doe! Arundo!” The sixth year repeated as Madigan had instructed. That was an easy incantation in her opinion. The wand movement? Well, that seemed a little complicated to her. Nevertheless, Aria was beyond impressed at Madigan’s demonstration and could hardly wait to get started herself.

“Arundo!” Carefully, Aria tried to trace out the wand movement she had practiced seconds ago. Directing it at the ground, there was an icy blue arrow alright, but it just wasn’t a proper arrow? It hadn’t been fully formed. “Arundo!” Another unsuccessful attempt. “Arundo!’’ This time, another strong burst of wind happened. Aria was so startled that her wand fell to the ground and looking around with widened eyes, she realised that there was a tiny funnel of wind circling her feet. “No, no no! Stop! STOP!!!’’ she muttered frantically, panicking because… WHAT IF THE TORNADO GOT BIGGER??? The result of her pleas? The tornado danced about at an increased speed.
Suddenly remembering the gust he experienced earlier, Madigan was thankful what he wore wouldn't be at risk of the wind. "Not a problem, Miss McLeod," Taking his wand to suction the wind like a vacuum. Though quite a few leaves and grass were astray from the action. He would have to keep an extra eye. "Keep at it, I know you'll get it." She had a high streak in his lessons so he knew her capabilities to keep the encouragement.

Arundo, she wrote in her notebook as she listened to the explanation of what the spell could do. Pronounced: Ah-roon-doe (like doe a deer). Lifting her quill just a centimeter off of the page, Lisa listened to him speak. Will send an icy-blue arrow and depending on where it hits the target they will be paralyzed like a body-binding spell (Petrificus Totalus). Won’t leave a wound or serious ailments.

She watched him demonstrate the spell and stopped to write down the movement. Reverse check mark (left to right check mark but start right to left) motion paired with incantation.

Alright. She was ready to try.

Lisa lifted her wand and pointed it at the ground in front of her. She started from the far right at a high point. Then from that point, she took her wand down the slope diagonally (right to left) before it reached the bottom. Then she lifted her wand up on a similar slope directed right to left upwards.

Ah-roon-do. No, uh-ROON-DOE. AHH-ROON-DOE. Not quite. Ah-Roon-Doe. Yes. Ah-Roon-Doe. Arundo,” she spoke. With each word, she found herself becoming more and more confident.

Now to try to pair it together. The first attempt, nothing. The second attempt, also nothing. Third and fourth was the same. However, the fifth attempt was very successful. “Arundo,” paired with the checkmark (drawing from right to left) motion aaaand the hint of a faint icy blue arrow tip appeared from her wand.
"Excellent Miss Nam, just add a little more curve to the wand movement for a more solid appearing arrow." Nodding with a kind smile.

This was definitely a sight, conjuring feathers. Madigan noticed her wand movement was correct, and no mispronunciation, "Keep it up, Miss Clarke, you'll get it soon" At the very least, conjuring something was better than none. Nodding with a kind smile for encouragement.

OOC: Keep at it all, you're doing great! We'll be moving on tomorrow incase your character needs to catch up or practice the spell more.

Wand gripped tightly in his hand; Hooper watched carefully as the Professor came around, only acknowledging him with a nod such was his focus. “Thanks Professor,” he murmured. After taking a moment to wipe his sweaty hands on his robes, Hooper again practiced the wand movement, his wand aimed at the ground so as do avoid any accidents.

Slightly unsure if he managed to get the wand movement right, he continued with this for the longest of times which was slightly unusual in itself as he was never usually this focused. No doubt a headache would ensue after the lesson was over.

“Ah-roOoOon-do”

Nothing.

“AHh-roOoOon-dOO”

Still no sight of the blue arrow.

“Arundo!”

Finally! After what felt like an age, a blue arrow shot out of the end of his wand into the earth below his feet. “PROFESSOR! I DID IT!!!!”

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

"Ah-run-doe. Ahrundoe. Arundo..." Ash practiced the curved check mark in the air, then tried them both together until she was bored of shooting the arrow into a bulls-eye of flowers growing at her feet. What was the point in practicing this spell on things that couldn't normally move anyway? She was more interested in what happened when you hit a person with this spell. As she didn't dare shoot paralyzing arrows at a classmate, she turned to the most obvious practice target- her foot. According to the professor, this shouldn't leave a wound, so... "Arundo." As promised, her foot couldn't move. She tried her best to remove the arrow before the professor could notice and possibly lecture her.

“No kidding!’’ Aria snapped at Maxine. She didn’t mean to but the circumstances were so frustrating, not to mention a little terrifying to her. She was at a complete loss of how to proceed, that’s how confused she was at the moment. Maybe that was why she felt the strong urge to hug Madigan when he intervened. The man made remedying the situation look so easy; it probably was if she hadn’t lost her head completely. “Thank you, Professor. I have no clue how that tornado came about.” It was the truth,

What did she do when she was feeling this way on any normal day? “Breathe,’’ she reminded herself. “Take a break, go to my happy place.” Aria closed her eyes while inhaling deeply slowly. Her thoughts drifted to her accepting an award for being one of the most influential persons in the fashion industry. Lastly, she exhaled slowly. Already calm had been seeping through her and by the time her eyes opened again, she felt much better.

That meant it was back to practice for her. After clearing her throat, she continued doing just that. “Arundo!” The wand movement {directed at the ground before her} was made exactly as Madigan had shown them: a curved checkmark starting from the longer end. Not a thing happened. The Slytherin took another deep breath. “Arundo!” The wand movement was repeated, her focus and intent strong. Only then did the icy blue arrow materialise in the ground. Aria punched the air in triumph. Naturally there would be more practice from her because the goal was to master the spell.

"Excellent, Master Ridley-Rush." A proud Professor he was from seeing a student succeed.

Not that Professor Madigan didn't expect incidents to happen, given his walk around the clearing to make sure students were adapting... especially with some new abilities they were exhibiting. "Accidents happen, not to worry Miss Fox," Seeing her attempting to remove the arrow off her foot, he wordless performed a charm causing the arrow to melt and disappear. "Try to give your foot a little shake, you'll need it in the activity today," A kind sympathetic smile before he addressed the rest of the class. It didn't seem likely one would purposely practice on themselves.
--


"Alright, good work everyone. Since a good number of you have successfully made the arrows appear, I think it's time for the big task. No need to fret if you haven't managed yet, this will be another opportunity to practice." How so? More like where so? "As those markings in the distance trees are displayed, we will be doing target practice. However, those aren't the only targets available." Cue his wand movement in the general direction. Suddenly beyond the stumps but closer than the tree markings, mannequins appeared from the ground with spotted marks of their own. Each on the arms, legs, mid section, and head. "For those wanting a bit of a challenge," Cue another wand movement, two of the mannequins furthest away began to move towards a tree to seemingly hide behind. "While it is important to make your mark directly, it is valuable to be able to do so in amidst action. So you'll be aiming at the mannequins, whether stationary or moving, and if you just want to test your aim, the markings in the tree should suffice, like so," Performing the curved check ark wand movement once again, "Arundo," Sending an icy blue arrow at the furthest tree, clipping the side of a moving mannequin making it freeze in the process before it landed in the middle mark of the tree behind it.

"Now it's your turn to give it a try," Professor Madigan faced the class again to then add, "Just do your best to hit at least one target at any distance and there may be a surprise in the end," Of what though? Well, it wouldn't be a surprise anymore if he hinted. But for now, he would see how things fared out.


--
OOC: It's time for target practice! If your character needs more time getting acquainted with the spell, that's perfectly okay. You'll have at least 72 hours from now, but feel free to ask Professor Madigan any questions in between.
