Default Divination Lesson One

Early afternoon the air still feels a little warm outside as she make your way up the Divination Tower. When you enter the first thing you might notice is a poster right at the door and your professor standing waiting to greet each and every child. Hoping the poster would help set the tone for the rest of the class Professor Euka is eager to let you pick which greeting you would like.

SPOILER!!: Greetings


Once you have done the greeting students will see rows of desks set up three feet apart with little baskets under each for your belongings. On the board they will find a few instructions that Professor Euka would like them to do before she begins.

Quote:
Take your seat and place your things under your chair. Once you have done this please close your eyes and take three deep breaths to relax your body and your mind.

All the while, Claudine had been dreading Divination. Was that how one was supposed to feel when their old Divination professor had been murdered? Had she been murdered by one of the Blazes? Had Claudine’s feelings towards all the happenings the reason she had failed the subject’s OWL with a D? So many questions, so little answer. “I just won’t think about that now,’’ the girl told herself and welcomed the distraction that popped up in the form of a poster and Euka.

Any form of actual contact was out for her so Euka would only be receiving a verbal greeting. “Good afternoon, Professor.’’ It was a warm greeting, even if Claudine’s eyes didn’t meet the woman’s. She made her way into the classroom, taking note of the instructions. Once her belongings were put away and she was seated, Claudine hesitated. Shouldn’t this relaxation method be taken just before the lesson began so that its purpose could work better?

Oookay then.

Best she got this over with before anyone else arrived. Feeling slightly idiotic, the Snaketter closed her eyes then took three deep but quick breaths.

This was going to feel weird...Divination class. She still couldn't believe what happened last year. No Kittradge...this was weird. Professor deserved better than the fate that was dealt. Making her way to the door, Aibhi noticed the poster on the door and she stops at the door for a moment. "Hmm..." Glancing over and seeing the new Divination teacher, Professor Euka, she entered the classroom giving a slight wave to Euka and for extra measure says, "Afternoon, Professor." in a soft tone before she walked to her seat towards the middle back and sets her things into the basket and looks around the class before facing forward in her chair and closes her eyes breathing in and out slowly and getting her mind and body relaxed. If there was one thing about Divination that she loved, it was just always how relaxed she was in the class no matter what the topic of discussion was in class.

Misa looked at the poster with a head tilt. She'd... never danced while walking in to a class and could never imagine doing it. She could offer a verbal greeting though. Maybe a wave. Not both though, both was too much and too friendly.

"Hello Professor." she said softly as she entered the room. She then took a seat and placed her belongings under her desk and breathed -- as the board instructed.

Look. Kale Trent was the first guy in the WORLD to advocate for more dance and hugs. But, like, after last term, he didn't much trust the adults. And especially not with something as precious as his dancin' moves and his sweet hugs.

So, Kale did neither. With a polite nod of his head, he opted for a verbal hello. "Sup, Professor?" It wasn't really a question as more of a greeting. Sorry, teach. When he got to his desk, he happily closed his eyes and took some deep breaths.

Ollie wasn't sure what to expect with the divination class. She grabbed her things and made her way to the class. She had never been given greeting options before and opted for a classic "Good Afternoon, Professor." She offered a smile as well and made her way to her desk, placing her items under her desk. She read the board and closed her eyes, taking a few deep breaths, waiting for class to begin.

Ash was really only here because of Kitridge. Did Ash like this class? No, she didn't even like Kitridge that much. But because she was dead, she was like a martyr and stuff, and therefore Ash felt like she should attend anyway.

Ash also didn't like the poster, because it was a poster for young children directed at her. She metaphorically never even WAS a child. And physically, she was not young or small anymore. Still, fist bumps were alright. She offered one to the professor, along with a verbal greeting that Ash rarely used. "Professor." Ash hardly ever said that word. But this professor was not here last year, so she didn't hate them yet.

She walked inside the classroom and sat next to Claudine, depositing some stuff in the baskets- except for the things she didn't. She had quite a few markers and other stuff in secret robe pockets, and she wasn't going to put them down.

She did the deep breaths thing. Was it supposed to help? It didn't. Not that Ash much cared. She was going through the motions, whether they were helpful or not.

First Lesson of Divination and this was definitely going to be an adjustment for the sixth year as she made her way into the classroom. Taking in a quick glance, she could feel her chest tighten a bit at the new Professor in the place of beloved Professor Kittridge waiting for everyone to arrive. Faye remained calm not allowing her emotions get the better of her before she took notice of the poster near the door with greetings to give the Professor.

She looked it over a for a few moments before opting to go with a verbal greeting to the new face before them. "Hello Professor.." Faye made her way into the room before choosing a seat and placed her things under her chair as the board had instructed. As a fan of meditation and yoga, these instructions to close their eyes and take a few deep breaths immediately resonated with the redhead. Wasting no time as she closed her eyes and took in a few deep breaths allowing the air to slowly fill her lungs in before she slowly breathed out.

In all honesty, Noah wasn't too keen on attending this class, and he has his reasons for having reservations. But then again, he must do what he needs to do; move along.

Upon reaching the door however, Noah faltered a bit as he saw the poster. It was just like in their old muggle school, wasn't it? Wherein they had to make a queue outside the classroom, and then one by one they get to choose a greeting by pointing at the picture then executing it. He was seven years old back then, and he had a lot of enthusiasm for it. He's 15 now though, so, some greetings were a bit awkward... especially between a teenager like him and a new professor.

But for old time's sake, Noah did point at the picture of a little girl waving, and then waved at the professor with a smile resembling the picture he chose. It felt weird.

Noah schooled his face back to its neutral expression once he passed the new professor, then made a beeline for the back row corner, and snagged a chair where he could see everyone and everything in front. Upon reading the note on the board, the Gryffindor stowed his bag underneath his chair, except for his wand of course, and closed his eyes to take deep breaths.

Yeah, maybe he should take this opportunity to extend the breathing exercise and nap while waiting for the others to arrive.

Dare was not sure what to expect with arriving in one of his familiar subjects. Ms. Kitridge was such a good Professor (albeit a bit too happy sometimes, but nothing harmful) that the memory of her developed what felt like the shape of a lime in his stomach as he approached the room.

Seeing the poster giving him a chance for a greeting gave him a moment to ponder. He didn't know Professor Euka well enough to trust that she would reciprocate the greetings he usually gave people he knew well. He didn't want to be awkward or make her feel awkward. "Hello Professor," Darius said, raising his hand to give a wave that turned into more of a salute part-way.

Darius went to the back to sit. He then dropped his stuff on the floor before letting his feet kick them under the chair to rest. He let his hands cover his eyes to close before taking some deep breaths.

not throwing away my shot | Slytherpuff | roll for initiative | woof you ❤

Alfie was super super super duper excited to learn about Divination, actually. It was one of the subjects that seemed the most magical to the muggleborn. All of it was magical, of course. But spells and potions he could at least wrap his head around. Seeing the future and stuff? Even in a world of magic it seemed extra magical. And did he know exactly what Divination was? No he did not. But he was excited to learn.

Alfie climbed all the way up to the Divination tower. It was a long way but luckily he was eleven and had a lot of energy. When he reached the classroom he stopped and took in the sign that awaited him. Choose his greeting? Okay, that seemed kind of fun. Deciding he liked the fist bump option best, Alfie held up his first for a first bump. But he also smiled at the professor and said "Hello professor!" So technically he chose two greetings. But just a fist bump without saying hello would be weird.

After the greeting he made his way into the classroom and looked around for a place to sit. Most of the people there so far were older than him. He didn't spot any of his dormmates or other friends he had mad yet. But he did spot a Slytherin girl (Wednesday) who looked like she was probably in his year. He chose a desk near her and gave her a smile in greeting. "Hello!" Then he turned his attention to the board. Put his things under his chair, he could do that. Then he closed his eyes and took three deep breaths, as instructed. Unfortunately, it didn't actually have the intended effect of relaxing his mind. Alfie's mind was a bit difficult to relax, especially at the moment. No matter how many deep breaths he took it kept racing with the possibilities of what cool new things he would be learning about today.

Scarlett thought this class sounded like FUN. That was why she picked it. Apart from it being FUN, she had very little expectations.

It was basically a WORKOUT getting from the Hufflepuff Common Room to that classroom, and by the time she arrived she was NOT skipping anymore. Her eyes DID smile, though, when she saw the poster by the entrance.

The Hufflepuff HIGH FIVED the teacher and skipped right in, her energy seemingly recharged by the greeting. She chose a random place and then looked at what the woman had written on the board.

OOHHHH, SHE WAS A HIPPY!!!!!!!!!!!! SCARLETT LOVED HIPPIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Basically throwing her belongings into the basket under the desk, Scarlett quickly sat up straight and closed her eyes, taking three VEEERYYYY DEEP and LOOONNNGGGG breaths. Exhaling equally as LOOOOONG and very LOUDLY TOO.

A HIPPY, YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What poster?

Victoria didn't see it - she had zoomed right in without paying ANY attention to her surroundings and merely shouted a "HI PROFESSOR!!!!" before trying to decide WHOOOO to sit by.

Ollie was here! By Hufflepuff Alfie! Hmmm....she took a seat next to the older Slytherin, Claudine, and gave her a nod. "Hi Claudy. Can I call you Claudy? It's cooler than Claudine, I think. Claudine is an old lady's name, and you're not really an old lady yet," she gave Claudy a sympathetic look. Poor thing, stuck with this old lady's name. "I don't know if I'll like this class, but we'll see," she smiled somewhat innocently before settling.

Reaching the Divination classroom, a class which he really was not very confident regarding his abilities or his belief, Evan was not nearly as excited as he might have been for some of his other courses. But he was here, and he would still put his best foot forward for participation. Filing into the classroom after the others, he eyed the poster with different potential greetings to give the Professor.

A lot of them involved physical touch. He didn't really like physical touch, for no more of a reason then he just didn't. But there was verbal greeting, or a wave. Seeing that the board was instructing everyone to sit quietly and breathe and he was not one of the first, he decided to be respectful of the noise and just go with the wave and a forced half smile, before he made his way in.

There were some familiar faces, if only from recognizing them from his other classes, but Evan opted to find a seat next to someone he did not recognize but who seemed quieter. Which was his generally preference. He slid into a seat next to the older Ravenclaw (Misa), judging by her robes and slid all of his belongings under his seat before straightening up and taking a few deep breaths.

He was not going to close his eyes, however. Sorry Professor.

It felt weird entering this room without seeing Kittrage inside. It was stranger yet that this room still managed to give her the zen that she needed more often than not these days. Tucking a curl behind her ear, showing off her celestial earrings that she was absolutely glad she grabbed over the summer, she headed to sit down near the other older students. Glancing at the board she saw the ways to greet their professor and smiled, honestly that felt more helpful than lakeside chats. eye rolls please. Waving her hand she let out a quieter than usual, "Hello Professor." Slipping her super cute purple bag under her seat she closed her eyes.

Of all the things that Camryn had been dreading, going to Divination had to be at the top of the list. No Professor Kitridge. That was just wrong.....wrong and extremely sad. New year, new professor. With a sigh, Cam went into the tower and immediately noticed the poster. They got to choose their form of greeting? A hug would be very nice right about now, but considering the situation, she went for the verbal greeting.

“Hello Professor”, the second year said. Baby steps. Following directions, Camryn sat down and put her things under the desk. She was all in for the relaxation exercises. She closed her eyes and took three slow, deep breaths. Then she opened her eyes. Was she relaxed? Nope, not yet. Cam took three more deep breaths and then tried to prepare her mind for what was to come.

The only thing Serena was looking forward to when it came to Divination was the stairs. It was her activity for the day. When she arrived, her nose wrinkled on its own accord. Ew. EWWW. Why did some professors have to be so weird here? Thank Merlin she experienced excellent education pre-Hogwarts at her grandmum’s school for young wizards.

An eyebrow raised at the poster, Serena already made up her mind. Nnnn-oooooo. None of that. Instead, she opted for a curt nod of her head and stepped inside the classroom. The weirdness only got weirder. Now they had to meditate?

UGGGGGGHHHHH.

Tossing her bad into the box underneath her chair, obviously already in a bad mood, Serena sat down and….

...Loud breathing. EYE ROLL. Serena frowned at the girl (Scarlett Mordaunt) beside her. Really? Did she have to over exaggerate this? Her eyes briefly drifted to the girl’s neck. If she decks her properly…

No. No. She was turning a new page in her behavior. If her mum and dad found out she decked a girl for breathing loudly, Serena would lose privileges to her goat. She couldn’t have that. Play nice, yes. Instead, she just grumbled. GRUMBLE GRUMBLE.

So they had to choose a greeting, now?

Lisa eyed her options. This decision would literally not only set her impression with the Professor but also with her peers. And she wanted to seem as cool as possible so OBVIOUSLY she went for the fist bump cause that was different. And she was weird different and marched to the beat of her own internal drum.

Thus she sidled up to the Professor and offered a fist bump as her greeting. “Professor... hope you’re ready for fireworks...” she beamed as she waited for the Professor to bump her fist against hers. And then after their fists bumped, Lisa pretended to create fireworks with her hands. Well she made her fingers open and close to simulate the crackling explosion associated with it. Now it would have been really cool if she had a spell for that.

Then she headed to an open seat next to Serena and she slid into it. “Serena. What’s the scoop?” she asked, pulling out her books before giving a wave to V and Ollie. Oh hey! There was her fellow adventurer Alfie sitting right next to Ollie. He got a wave too. She glanced around the room and found her sibling and Ash- both received smiles.

The person breathing heavily received a harsh STARE from her.

Fiona paused for a few moments as she gazed at the greetings poster. Which greeting was she going to choose from? The Snakette opted for a verbal greeting. "Good afternoon, Professor," Fiona greeted with a smile before she headed towards a seat near Claudine. Fiona placed her belongings in the basket underneath her chair and then closed her eyes and quietly performed some deep breaths.

Divination wasn't her strong suit. However she had done rather well in the class last year despite everything that had happened, including the loss of a very nice professor whom she liked. It was tough making her to the classroom where she knew a different professor would be but that wasn't this new women's fault. As she got there though, there was a line of sorts outside the door. Not a very long one as it was moving but it wasn't until she was just about in front of the door that she saw the 'Greetings' poster and Professor standing there. Well this was certainly something new!

Dahlia opted for waving at Professor Euka as well as offering a polite greeting, "Good afternoon, Professor." This was okay, right? Seeing as to how she really didn't know the professor yet she thought this was fair.

Heading into the room she choose an empty seat and set her bag down beneath the chair. Seeing the instructions on the board, Lia sat there quietly allowing herself to relax as best as she could. Deep cleansing breaths were okay but closing her eyes.. erm.. she wasn't so sure she could attempt that right now.

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

She was going to dance. Was there any other way when given the choice? "I wish you'd said so earlier, Professor. I'd have shown up in my leotard. It's better for pirouettes and the like but I can make this work, too." She said, indeed moving into a triple pirouette that ended in a grand jete.

She could do this all day. In fact, now she wished they were doing this all day instead of whatever else her professors had planned. Weekends were okay, but a surprise day off in the middle of the week??? Now that would've been satisfying.

Resisting the urge to keep going into her latest routine, Emm moved over to her desk and shoved her stuff beneath it.

Breathing?

Easiest start to a class she'd ever had. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale.

Divination was not one of Heath's better subjects. Honestly, he had no idea how he'd scraped by with an A on the OWL, but he felt he owed it to Professor Kitridge to continue his studies. She was one of the good ones. She'd been practically the only professor willing to stand up to the Neo-Alliance before outside help arrived, and he hadn't forgotten how she comforted the students in class that term when they were sent back in time.

It still felt weird walking into the divination classroom and not seeing her, so instead Heath focused on the poster. Hmm… interesting choice of classroom decor. Was there a form of divination? Dance? Yeah, no. The only way this Ravenclaw would dance was in a play, and then he had two things that he didn't now: 1) time to learn the choreography and 2) more often than not, a dancing partner. Anything that involved touching was also quickly ruled out; those things were reserved for only those he knew and trusted most. Instead he opted for a simple verbal greeting, "Hello, Professor."

He took a seat near Claudine, Ash, Fiona, and a firstie he didn't yet know (Victoria). After stowing his bag under the chair, he closed his eyes and took a few deep breaths. In and out, in and out, in and out… Okay, done. Could he open his eyes now?

Pax barely looked up from her book as she entered the classroom so missed the poster entirely, but she did give the professor an entirely perfunctory but still polite greeting during the brief moment that she lifted her gaze, "Good afternoon, professor."

Probably for the best that she hadn't seen the poster. Pax would immediately be skeptical and suspicious of something so infantalizing and wouldn't dream of buying into any of it because she was not five years old - not that she would have much appreciated it back then either.

She ended up sitting next to Kale, but otherwise continued reading - her book would go away as soon as the lesson began.

So many questions, so little answer. “I just won’t think about that now,’’ the girl told herself and welcomed the distraction that popped up in the form of a poster and Euka.

Any form of actual contact was out for her so Euka would only be receiving a verbal greeting. “Good afternoon, Professor.’’ It was a warm greeting, even if Claudine’s eyes didn’t meet the woman’s. She made her way into the classroom, taking note of the instructions. Once her belongings were put away and she was seated, Claudine hesitated. Shouldn’t this relaxation method be taken just before the lesson began so that its purpose could work better?

Oookay then.

Best she got this over with before anyone else arrived. Feeling slightly idiotic, the Snaketter closed her eyes then took three deep but quick breaths.
As the first student came in Meda knew this was going to be awkward, but she was determined to not make it that way. She loved her little extras that she hoped the students would too. "Good afternoon, I hope you have had a good day so far. Looks like you get to be the first to pick your seat." She was already trying to store information into her brain that would help her remember each and every student.

Glancing over and seeing the new Divination teacher, Professor Euka, she entered the classroom giving a slight wave to Euka and for extra measure says, "Afternoon, Professor." in a soft tone before she walked to her seat towards the middle back and sets her things into the basket and looks around the class before facing forward in her chair and closes her eyes breathing in and out slowly and getting her mind and body relaxed. If there was one thing about Divination that she loved, it was just always how relaxed she was in the class no matter what the topic of discussion was in class.

As another student came in and decided to give a wave Euka smiled and waved back, "Good afternoon, I'm so happy you have joined us today." Meda had a feeling her class would be a bit busy today, knew professor and all. She wasn't that old... yet to not realize people would be curious.

"Hello Professor." she said softly as she entered the room. She then took a seat and placed her belongings under her desk and breathed -- as the board instructed.
"Hello and good day. Welcome to Divination." Greeting the next to come in, Meda was watchful to make sure all the students seemed okay, she knew this was hard for some and even if they didn't know it was a little hard for her.

So, Kale did neither. With a polite nod of his head, he opted for a verbal hello. "Sup, Professor?" It wasn't really a question as more of a greeting. Sorry, teach. When he got to his desk, he happily closed his eyes and took some deep breaths.
"Hello Mr. Trent, I'm glad you see you in class today." Meda nodded as the boy headed for a seat.

She read the board and closed her eyes, taking a few deep breaths, waiting for class to begin.
Giving a smile to the younger child, Meda spoke softly, "Good afternoon, welcome to class today."

Still, fist bumps were alright. She offered one to the professor, along with a verbal greeting that Ash rarely used. "Professor." Ash hardly ever said that word. But this professor was not here last year, so she didn't hate them yet.

She walked inside the classroom and sat next to Claudine, depositing some stuff in the baskets- except for the things she didn't. She had quite a few markers and other stuff in secret robe pockets, and she wasn't going to put them down.

She did the deep breaths thing. Was it supposed to help? It didn't. Not that Ash much cared. She was going through the motions, whether they were helpful or not.
Oh her first fist bump, Meda lifted her hand to do one and smiled, "Good afternoon. I'm glad you are here." Positivity was a family trait if people hadn't noticed.

Faye remained calm not allowing her emotions get the better of her before she took notice of the poster near the door with greetings to give the Professor.

She looked it over a for a few moments before opting to go with a verbal greeting to the new face before them. "Hello Professor.." Faye made her way into the room before choosing a seat and placed her things under her chair as the board had instructed. As a fan of meditation and yoga, these instructions to close their eyes and take a few deep breaths immediately resonated with the redhead. Wasting no time as she closed her eyes and took in a few deep breaths allowing the air to slowly fill her lungs in before she slowly breathed out.
"Good day" she greeted but had a soft expression as some of the students seemed a bit more uncomfortable than others. Glancing around the room she wondered if she should have left the scent that lingered or some pink around, would that have made it worse or better. Alas the adult decisions that one never really could figure out she thought as she turned to the next student.

Upon reaching the door however, Noah faltered a bit as he saw the poster. It was just like in their old muggle school, wasn't it? Wherein they had to make a queue outside the classroom, and then one by one they get to choose a greeting by pointing at the picture then executing it. He was seven years old back then, and he had a lot of enthusiasm for it. He's 15 now though, so, some greetings were a bit awkward... especially between a teenager like him and a new professor.

But for old time's sake, Noah did point at the picture of a little girl waving, and then waved at the professor with a smile resembling the picture he chose. It felt weird.

Noah schooled his face back to its neutral expression once he passed the new professor, then made a beeline for the back row corner, and snagged a chair where he could see everyone and everything in front. Upon reading the note on the board, the Gryffindor stowed his bag underneath his chair, except for his wand of course, and closed his eyes to take deep breaths.

Yeah, maybe he should take this opportunity to extend the breathing exercise and nap while waiting for the others to arrive.
One that picked the wave, Meda was happy to lift her hand and give a wave without any exchange of words. She wanted all the students to feel comfortable here.

Seeing the poster giving him a chance for a greeting gave him a moment to ponder. He didn't know Professor Euka well enough to trust that she would reciprocate the greetings he usually gave people he knew well. He didn't want to be awkward or make her feel awkward. "Hello Professor," Darius said, raising his hand to give a wave that turned into more of a salute part-way.

Darius went to the back to sit. He then dropped his stuff on the floor before letting his feet kick them under the chair to rest. He let his hands cover his eyes to close before taking some deep breaths.
Giving a wave Meda smiled at the next student, "Good afternoon, welcome to Divination." Not fully knowing which student was here last term and which were new she didn't want to say welcome back to anyone and be wrong.

No he did not. But he was excited to learn.

Alfie climbed all the way up to the Divination tower. It was a long way but luckily he was eleven and had a lot of energy. When he reached the classroom he stopped and took in the sign that awaited him. Choose his greeting? Okay, that seemed kind of fun. Deciding he liked the fist bump option best, Alfie held up his first for a first bump. But he also smiled at the professor and said "Hello professor!" So technically he chose two greetings. But just a fist bump without saying hello would be weird.

After the greeting he made his way into the classroom and looked around for a place to sit. Most of the people there so far were older than him. He didn't spot any of his dormmates or other friends he had mad yet. But he did spot a Slytherin girl (Wednesday) who looked like she was probably in his year. He chose a desk near her and gave her a smile in greeting. "Hello!" Then he turned his attention to the board. Put his things under his chair, he could do that. Then he closed his eyes and took three deep breaths, as instructed. Unfortunately, it didn't actually have the intended effect of relaxing his mind. Alfie's mind was a bit difficult to relax, especially at the moment. No matter how many deep breaths he took it kept racing with the possibilities of what cool new things he would be learning about today.
The energy of the youth never stopped amazing her and as Meda put her first up to bump she smiled, "Good afternoon, have you been having a good day so far?"

It was basically a WORKOUT getting from the Hufflepuff Common Room to that classroom, and by the time she arrived she was NOT skipping anymore. Her eyes DID smile, though, when she saw the poster by the entrance.

The Hufflepuff HIGH FIVED the teacher and skipped right in, her energy seemingly recharged by the greeting. She chose a random place and then looked at what the woman had written on the board.

OOHHHH, SHE WAS A HIPPY!!!!!!!!!!!! SCARLETT LOVED HIPPIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Basically throwing her belongings into the basket under the desk, Scarlett quickly sat up straight and closed her eyes, taking three VEEERYYYY DEEP and LOOONNNGGGG breaths. Exhaling equally as LOOOOONG and very LOUDLY TOO.

A HIPPY, YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Another very energetic one came flying in the room and Meda barely had time to lift her hand for the high five when the girl was into the classroom and onto the next task. Meda couldn't help but smile.

Ollie was here! By Hufflepuff Alfie! Hmmm....she took a seat next to the older Slytherin, Claudine, and gave her a nod. "Hi Claudy. Can I call you Claudy? It's cooler than Claudine, I think. Claudine is an old lady's name, and you're not really an old lady yet," she gave Claudy a sympathetic look. Poor thing, stuck with this old lady's name. "I don't know if I'll like this class, but we'll see," she smiled somewhat innocently before settling.
"Hello" was all she could get out as the next one came into the room.

Filing into the classroom after the others, he eyed the poster with different potential greetings to give the Professor.

A lot of them involved physical touch. He didn't really like physical touch, for no more of a reason then he just didn't. But there was verbal greeting, or a wave. Seeing that the board was instructing everyone to sit quietly and breathe and he was not one of the first, he decided to be respectful of the noise and just go with the wave and a forced half smile, before he made his way in.

There were some familiar faces, if only from recognizing them from his other classes, but Evan opted to find a seat next to someone he did not recognize but who seemed quieter. Which was his generally preference. He slid into a seat next to the older Ravenclaw (Misa), judging by her robes and slid all of his belongings under his seat before straightening up and taking a few deep breaths.

He was not going to close his eyes, however. Sorry Professor.
Older students were the ones that she knew she was going to have to gain trust and understanding. She had big shoes to fill even if her sister had the tiniest feet she had ever seen. Giving a wave to the next student she smiled as he headed to his seat.

Glancing at the board she saw the ways to greet their professor and smiled, honestly that felt more helpful than lakeside chats. eye rolls please. Waving her hand she let out a quieter than usual, "Hello Professor." Slipping her super cute purple bag under her seat she closed her eyes.

INHALE

this wasn't going to be that hard.... right?
A wave was returned as the next student came in, "Hello, glad you are here today."

A hug would be very nice right about now, but considering the situation, she went for the verbal greeting.

“Hello Professor”, the second year said. Baby steps. Following directions, Camryn sat down and put her things under the desk. She was all in for the relaxation exercises. She closed her eyes and took three slow, deep breaths. Then she opened her eyes. Was she relaxed? Nope, not yet. Cam took three more deep breaths and then tried to prepare her mind for what was to come.
"Hello, thank you for coming to class today" Giving an encouraging smile she was happy they made it to class.

An eyebrow raised at the poster, Serena already made up her mind. Nnnn-oooooo. None of that. Instead, she opted for a curt nod of her head and stepped inside the classroom. The weirdness only got weirder. Now they had to meditate?

UGGGGGGHHHHH.

Tossing her bad into the box underneath her chair, obviously already in a bad mood, Serena sat down and….

...Loud breathing. EYE ROLL. Serena frowned at the girl (Scarlett Mordaunt) beside her. Really? Did she have to over exaggerate this? Her eyes briefly drifted to the girl’s neck. If she decks her properly…

No. No. She was turning a new page in her behavior. If her mum and dad found out she decked a girl for breathing loudly, Serena would lose privileges to her goat. She couldn’t have that. Play nice, yes. Instead, she just grumbled. GRUMBLE GRUMBLE.
As expected she knew she wouldn't impress some and that was okay. She had a son, she knew when things weren't cool in the eyes of teenagers, but what the teenagers didn't know was that some times you needed to let go of the cool vibes and just be happy. Giving the student a nod she allowed her to go find her seat.

And she wanted to seem as cool as possible so OBVIOUSLY she went for the fist bump cause that was different. And she was weird different and marched to the beat of her own internal drum.

Thus she sidled up to the Professor and offered a fist bump as her greeting. “Professor... hope you’re ready for fireworks...” she beamed as she waited for the Professor to bump her fist against hers. And then after their fists bumped, Lisa pretended to create fireworks with her hands. Well she made her fingers open and close to simulate the crackling explosion associated with it. Now it would have been really cool if she had a spell for that.

Then she headed to an open seat next to Serena and she slid into it. “Serena. What’s the scoop?” she asked, pulling out her books before giving a wave to V and Ollie. Oh hey! There was her fellow adventurer Alfie sitting right next to Ollie. He got a wave too. She glanced around the room and found her sibling and Ash- both received smiles.

The person breathing heavily received a harsh STARE from her.
Her smile was back with the first bump and fireworks. "I am always ready for fireworks and fun." Grinning as the girl opened her hand to make the fireworks after the fist bump. Creativity was what she was hoping for.

"Good afternoon, I'm so glad you are in class today." Meda smiled as the next child came into the room.

Not a very long one as it was moving but it wasn't until she was just about in front of the door that she saw the 'Greetings' poster and Professor standing there. Well this was certainly something new!

Dahlia opted for waving at Professor Euka as well as offering a polite greeting, "Good afternoon, Professor." This was okay, right? Seeing as to how she really didn't know the professor yet she thought this was fair.

Heading into the room she choose an empty seat and set her bag down beneath the chair. Seeing the instructions on the board, Lia sat there quietly allowing herself to relax as best as she could. Deep cleansing breaths were okay but closing her eyes.. erm.. she wasn't so sure she could attempt that right now.
Giving a wave to the next student that came into the room Meda smiled, "Good afternoon I'm so glad you are here."

She could do this all day. In fact, now she wished they were doing this all day instead of whatever else her professors had planned. Weekends were okay, but a surprise day off in the middle of the week??? Now that would've been satisfying.

Resisting the urge to keep going into her latest routine, Emm moved over to her desk and shoved her stuff beneath it.

Breathing?

Easiest start to a class she'd ever had. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale.

"Oh bravo, bravo" Meda couldn't help but give a clap at the dancing, "Wonderful entrance and maybe one time we can have a dance production and you can show off the leotard then." Anything was possible and she would like to get creative with things in the library.

She thought she could sense some hesitation with this student, but maybe it was just impatience for waiting to greet the professor, either way she wanted to show encouragement and gave a smile, "Good afternoon"

As the next and final student came in before the lesson started she smiled, "Good afternoon, thank you for coming today." She moved to close the trap door and begin class.








Heading away from the door Meda smiled at the class. "Good afternoon everyone. If I haven't met you before this I am Professor Euka and I am so happy to be standing here with you today. I'd like to thank you for putting up with my little poster. I've been all different trainings and have taught in a few places, but I like to bring a few things into my classroom that gives students the chance to express themselves in their own ways, gives you creativity and options. " It gave her a sense of how students react to things as well. "If you haven't met Irvin yet you will see him moving around the class." smiling she pointed out the peacock chilling in the back of the room at the moment.

"Now I know some of you are having a harder time in this room than others, but I promise we will all get through this first class together and move forward. I am here to show you the amazing ways of Divination and how fun it can be. I have come from a long line of Diviners and our passion for teaching the subject does run in the family." She knew her sister had different ways of reaching the students than she did, but she hoped they would enjoy her style just as much.

"To start off today though I have to ask by a show of hands who wishes they could take a nap? I mean it is afternoon, you've worked really hard in your classes and had lunch. A nap at this time of day just seems perfect." Glancing around the room she expected to see many different reactions to this question and wouldn't be surprised with some yeses and claps. "The problem with naps and sleep in general is that sometimes people can be afraid of letting go of the control that sleep takes. You are the most vulnerable when you sleep. You have no defense, you have no control on your fears, concerns, or any other things taking over your mind while you sleep. " She walked around the room looking at all the students as she continued.

"Dreams can be an interesting topic all on their own and something we will be focusing on today. My question to start us off today is why do you think we dream and why do you think we don't remember every dream we have?"

Ash did not answer the professor's smile with one of her own. They were too special and too rare.

Ash did not raise her hand to take a nap. She did not like to sleep. It absolutely sucked, unless watching your friends drown in pitch-black water at midnight and then falling through a mirror into a flaming Hogwarts full of pureblood supremacists and then being impaled on a the highest tower of the castle while the whole world laughed at you was a dream that you would enjoy. Ash did not enjoy that dream. But she still had some unique version of it every night.

"I think that a dream is a weird manifestation of whatever you were thinking about when you went to bed. I guess we don't pay attention during dreams very much, so some people can't remember them." Some people. Not her. She remembered her dreams, and they were terrifying. "And sometimes people's brains will block a stressful or vivid dream, so that they won't get confused about what is reality." Ash wondered if that meant she had brain damage. She didn't see her brain doing that. Not fair.

"I paint my dreams sometimes." If she ever had one that deviated from the standard Flaming-Hogwarts dreams. Or if she had a particularly interesting standard Flaming-Hogwarts dream.
