Default HoM: Lesson One

Another day, another History of Magic lesson. Stepping into the classroom not much has changed since the previous lessons. The open windows have allowed for some leaves to fly into various places in the classroom, not that Scabior would care enough to pick them up. That was a house elf’s job, or more specifically the nutjob caretaker’s.

The desks are arranged so that only two people are capable of sitting next to each other. A toy train placed on a circular track, strangely similar to another famous train sits between each pair of desks.

Up at the front of the classroom, Scabior is seated behind his desk instead of his usual stance of leaning against it. This is most likely because, placed smack in the middle of his desk is also a train on a track similar to the ones on each pair of desks. This train however is different from the others despite looking exactly the same. While the others all sit motionless on their tracks, the train on Scabior’s desk happens to be moving in a continuous motion around the track with a stream of gray smoke trailing behind as it.

“Hurry in, come on. Take your seats.” He would advise that they sit next to someone they would want to work with, but it was too much work.



Class Progression:
Question One: The Hogwarts Express
Question Two
Question Three
Question Four
Activity



OOC: Class will officially begin in, 81/2 hours. Please familiarize yourself with the updated classroom rules. Your characters can chat, dance, try to set the room on fire. Just remember Scabior is there, and SS and RPG rules apply. Class has officially started (i'll edit in whoever i've missed in this post)! Please no posts announcing late arrivals, as that will result in lost of points. If you want to join in, I encourage you to! Just act as though your character was there all along.

Minerva thought for a second if she could remember reading about it's crashes in any of the books. She was having a memory problem at the moment or something, because she couldn't think of anything, but then something caught her attention.. Snow in September, was that something that happened here? She never remembered snow in September, but Sophie asked the question she was thinking.

Minerva put her hand up, "Well professor since it was made by muggles and of course with muggles cars, planes, and trains things happen, they are not perfect and do not build things that last forever. So was there some sort of mechanical or muggle issue with the train causing it to crash?" The train was old, so it probably had issues such as engine failure and stuff like that.

YES. FAMOUS BUTTS MADE THE LIST.

Theodore was somewhat proud, and somewhat gaining a lot more respect for Professor Scabior. Hey, maybe he WAS cool? He put his hand up for the next question, not putting a great lot of thought into his answer.

"Nobody's perfect, professor. Not even the Hogwarts Express." It was allowed to break down once in a while.

Theo scribbled the other suggestions from the board down, making sure that 'Famous Butts' was at the very top.

And he added a star next to it.

Aspen SO WANTED A DEMENTOR to board the train next time she was on it.

Bet the Head Girl would pass out first. Aspen's GRIN at the girl said as much.

"One hundred and sixty seven." Scabior corrected. Specifics weren't needed but that correction was. He probably sounded like a Ravenclaw because of it.



"Good point about the Muggles." And the station, but the Muggles mostly, since no one had noted that. "Two points for you."

Yeah. Scabior was actually giving points.

And no. He hadn't hit his head.




Um. What? "No." Scabior said dryly. "I also stick to babysitting children as you can clearly see. And you know what's also not an excuse? Your attitude." ANYTHING that he said was an excuse. His word was almost law. He said it. They listened, and they wrote it down. That was how things worked. "So five points from Hufflepuff."



Famous butts? "Famous smells as well then due to these famous butts." Hopefully the train got aired out frequently.



Oh. Scabior nodded his head slowly. Good point. "The snow was not what caused the train to stop though, when it did go off track the snow bank actually helped it." She had to make sure she was clear of that.



"Not the Hogwarts express." Probably because it didn't run everyday but still. "And you are right. Something had to have gone wrong with the system."



Irrational? Well, he shrugged. "Remember, the idea came from the Ministry. The Ministry isn't exactly filled with the most rational people out there." Noooot that he was bashing the Ministry.

Much.






Painted purple? And the train was red. Honestly? "Come up here Miss Morganzo, Mister Wilde." Up to the front, beside him.

As students spoke out, Scabior drew his wand and every time a answer was right, it was written on the board. "Most of you seem to be right on track, which is excellent since all of this information is in your textbooks."... There were a few who...were off. But he expected it. Not everyone in the room was a O student. Probably only one actually....or none. Yeah. None. "The express was made by Muggles and they never knew about it and...everything that was basically said." He didn't need to repeat it. Everything was now on the board.


1. Relatively “new” (a hundred + years old)
2. Built by Muggle engineers
3. Pureblood families initially against it
4. Stopped on September first 1993 (because Dementor interference)
5. Ultimately the Ministry’s (Ottaline Gambol) idea
6. Created for a more discrete way of getting in and out of Hogwarts
7. One of the biggest Concealment charms ever was involved in its creation
8. One hundred and sixty seven memory charms used
9. Run by magic
10. Muggles can’t ride
11. Famous butts
12. Stopped/crashed on September first 2048
13. Stopped again on September first 2078

"Anyways, just by looking on the list we can see that the train has stopped three times since it was created." Maybe there was nothing strange at all and it was completely normal. Maybe. "The first time was probably because the invading Dementors cause the conductor to faint." Or something. That didn't matter. "Any guesses toward why the second crash happened?"

OOC:The lesson will continue in approximately 24 hours.


.... munchmunchmunch..... Louisa continued to lightly bite her fingernails, not that she was nervous from being stared-at non-stop without any reason, nope. She just had to pretend that Odessa was not sitting a couple of feet away from here and would so coldly shave Louisa's hair off, make it into a Gryffindor scarf since it's ginger now, and use it in one of her illegal deeds. GULP.

Thankfully Scabior's class had a lot of chatter in it, the Ravenclaw tried to focus on every silly and made-up reply the kids gave, and Merlin those professors were patient to put up with all this way-out-of-the-box minds of the younger generation.

As for his question... well, that was hard. Louisa heard of that but she never really dwelt on the subject. She could assume, though. Clearing her throat and raising her hand, "Maybe some gangster wizards attacked it. They could be doing it for fun, as a dare, or were looking for someone important that's rumored to be on board." Like that part of the Anastasia story. Louisa had no idea, really. She was just interested in talking every once in a while to give the impression that she was very unfazed by the sparkly starey vamp.

If SCABIOR would give Aspen HER NOTE for the Restricted Section she MIGHT have been able to READ these brilliant ideas out of Louisa's mind. A SCARF,a Gryffindor Scarf, made out of the HAIR of the Head Girl?

Who WOULDN'T want one of those?

But as it were, Aspen couldn't read these thoughts. And it was more or less Scabior's fault.

She didn't feel like answering questions anymore right now, so simply, she didn't. But she did push her and Louisa's train again. Come on, Head Girl. Plaaaay with meeeeee, the gesture said.

How did it stop the second time? Oh come on Scabior!!!!! Give me more of a challenge here! At this rate I won't learn anything new!!!!!!!! Nate simply raised his hand and stated. "The cause wasn't natural causes that's for sure. Even though that there WAS a freak snowstorm, but in Hogwarts, a History it never said anything about the tacks being frozen. So I say that I was man-made, and by a man who wanted something powerful.......that man was Lord Voldemortist. He was after something called the book of Mysteria......." Nate trailed off. That's all that Nate had to say about that simple question.

Emil is still trying to wrap his head around magic, so he was really glad he attended this class. Professor Scabior brought up the incident in the train ride to Hogwarts. He almost forgot about that due to being more home sick than worrying about things that are currently happening to him. He found out from the other students that the train has been stopped twice before, and the event yesterday was the third time it happened. And now the professor is inquiring everyone on why it stopped for the second time.

I think those people who were perplexed with snow on September is correct... why would such a thing happen? ... he thought to himself. Other than that, he couldn't really think of any other reason. He also heard a few students mention someone named Lord Voldemortist.

Such an odd name ... he thought to himself. Although, he remembers his mother mentioning a similar name, when she was trying to bring him up to date to the Wizarding World just as he was preparing for his trip to Hogwarts. My mother said they called that guy, um, You-Know-Who, and someone named Harry Potter was able to overpower this dark lord. He was writing all of these things down on his parchment, as well as whatever the professor has written on the board. He's trying to connect the dots in his head.

So far, nothing is connecting, and he doesn't like it. He is very argumentative, but in this current scenario, where he is still totally in the dark, all he can do is sit quietly and tongue-tied.

Sierra nodded. Snow assisting the train in the middle of a wreck seemed legit. She just wasn't alive back then, so she wouldn't be able to say for sure. She looked around the room as the others chimed in, and she raised her eyebrows when Scabior said something to Vivi about the Ministry.

...but the Ministry was filled some really awesome people, too. Like Sierra's father, for instance. ...and, wasn't Scabior dating one of the department heads? Hmph. Sounded like somebody was a little full of himself.

...and, why that second train crash happened?

But that had to wait for the man was now on the list of what was supposed to be the historical background of the magical train. Beezus nodded. Muggles, yes, it was constructed by those non-magic folk. And yes, it had broken down at least three times. Dementors on the first time with Dementors feeling a bit too friendly and decided to visit the students before they arrive at school. But really, Beatrice knew the Azkaban guards were looking for Sirius Black that time.

When Scabior asked for guesses on the second time the train broke, the Ravenclaw couldn't help but raise an eyebrow. The answer to that one was mentioned by one of their peers already. Quickly, she put her hand up.

"Professor, I believe Sierra Greigoth had already given a starting answer to that. As she said, during the journey to the school, it suddenly started snowing. It wasn't a usual occurrence because it was September," Snow in September? Yeah, that was just weird. "The train then ran into a snow bank, and got stuck and the students were forced to continue their way to Hogwarts on foot." Right Sierra? "..And in connection to what West Odessa said Professor, it was indeed assumed, uhh..well, actually it was proven thereafter that the wreckage had something to do with Lord Voldemortist killing a Professor and," *Head-shaking* "...a powerful book? I can't really remember. It was also reported that a dementor also made an appearance during that time."

Yes? Yes? She DID read Hogwarts, A History, quite a few times actually.


Seemed right.

"I'm going to agree with those two," she said, raising her hand then gesturing in the West and Beezus's direction. "Could have been a powerful wizard, or it could have been the snow. Or both." One would think, though, if it had been just the snow, a magical train would have been equipped to handle that.

Again, she raised her eyebrows. Powerful wizard? Dead professor? Mysterious book?

Yeah. She agreed with all of the above being the answer. Ravvie Girl seemed to know what she was talking about, at least.

The Hogwarts express! Aha! She knew that was what they were going to be talking about, from looking at all the toy trains. It was a little obvious, still she listened and when it came to putting in her input, she tried to put in as much as she could.

With a tiny pout she raised her hand. "Professor, all I know is that the Hogwarts Express has been used for many years, by all Hogwarts students. If I'm not mistaken I believe it was made in Ninteen Thirty...thirty six." That was the right date, right? That's at least what she rememebred.

Once she finished with her answer she took out some parchment and pretended to write down history notes. Meanwhile she was writing a note to Oakey. 'Hey, can I ask you to do me a favour?' Was what she wrote on her clean piece of parchment. She then folded it up and then when the professor wasn't looking she handed it over to him.
Oakey sat there quietly in the class, if this class wasn't going to take a wild turn of events soon he was just going to fall asleep in class. come on Scabior, were was the crazy trips to the Chamber of Secrets, or diving in the Black Lake? Trains were boring, unless they stop halfway through a trip forcing you to portkey to your destination.

That's when he felt something being placed on his lap, he looked to Renesmee very confused but read the note. placing the parchment up on his desk he read it quickly. Removing his quill Oakey began to write back pretending he was taking down the notes that Scabior just put up.

He took the parchment back down and handed it off back to Renesmee. it simply read 'What for?'

Elise squirmed a little in her seat and pushed the train on her desk. Was it really so bad that she didn't know? Especially when the whole class seemed so very up to date on the History of the Hogwarts Express. She'd always been horrible at theory. Practical was more her style.

Shaking her head, she inked her quill and took notes. Like copying other people's answers and such.

"You would think they'd have a lucid moment or two in all that time, Professor." And her mother had been an Auror and her father an Unspeakable... her Uncle Alec was a Cursebreaker. They weren't useless, although Uncle Brennan certainly could be pompous and overblown.

Still, the professor had a point. Sometimes people got so hidebound in old traditions, they didn't see how stupid and pointless those traditions were.

As for guesses, she didn't have much use for random shots in the dark when first and second hand accounts existed that detailed that horrible experience. It sounded like many students had read Hogwarts, A History, at least, and weren't just tossing out strange responses.

"I believe the train was sabotaged in order to stage the death of Professor GoldenLugia, sir. The professor was a pawn of the Dark Wizard Voldemortist and was one of his minions posing in place of the real Professor."

"Its what people say. Its how people know. Perspective and stuff."
West maintained, with a casual sort of shrug that he'd picked up from a certain older Slytherin.

And besides, he'd overheard stuff being said. Jokes maybe, but stuff all the same.

"You shouldn't let personal feelings get in the way of History, Vivi."
The twelve year old said. GOSH she was interrupting his LEARNING. GOSH.

Listening halfheartly while her fellow students answered the question, Emmanuelle racked her brain for what she had read in Hogwarts, A History. Or was, anyway until the answer smacked her upside the head. Or, you know, was called out by a few other students. "I agree with those saying it was this Voldemortist guy killing a professor that did it somehow," she said with her hand in the air. Merlin, she hoped that evil wizards had nothing to with the most recent train stoppage. If so, she wanted out of this crazy school. Come to think of it, that Lainey woman was acting pretty strange at the feast......

Err... what?

Sutton's eyes rested on the train for awhile while she thought and thought, using her very limited knowledge of magic to imagine why an enchanted train that had pretty much run perfectly well for over a hundred years would actually crash... because that is what the professor had said... that it had crashed the second time... not that it just stopped.

But maybe it didn't have anything to do with the magic. Maybe it was a perfectly ordinary reason why any train would crash like... a car come loose or a section of the track was broken or...

"Maybe something was on the tracks... an animal or something..." she said, half joking, not really intending for it to be the answer. But, the more she thought about it, the more it made sense. There were woods all around the tracks to the Hogwarts Express, an animal could have easily been on the tracks. Raising her hand, she said a little louder, "Professor... maybe there was something or... or someONE on the tracks for some reason!"

She brought her notebook along with her...since, you know, she was a Ravenclaw and had to take notes. Perhaps Professor Scabier though he was embarrassing her...well, he wasn't. He was just making sure everyone now knew exactly who she was...thank Merlin she was good looking...

Hmph.

She copied down all of those little bullet points, making a mental note to fiiiind the stupid train section in her textbook...

Argh.

And when could she sit again, Professor? Hmmm?

And then he asked another question...Elliot thought for a minute...guesses..."Well, Professor, perhaps the charms set on it backfired or something..." Or something. Because she really didn't know...

She couldn't help but giggle when she noticed Theodore's answer was also there on the list. Professor Scabior did have sense of humor! That was cool! Sophie smiled and listened to him speaking and asking another question.

Hm... they mentioned a snow bank when the train stopped the second time? She raised her hand. "It was snowing in September?" That wasn't very... normal, was it? "Maybe it had something to do with the strange weather?" Why would it be snowing right after summer break? Weeeird...

Why would a train just crash randomly?

The first malfunction was well documented of course, the second one he didnt really know about. For all his family's connection to the railway system he wasnt want to peruse the archives for accidents.

Anotehr thing he scribbled down was the weather-- winter mustve come strong and early for snow to accumulate enough to cushion a derailed train. He heard Alyssa mention the icy tracks, which makes a whole lot of sense. Up goes the hand "Professor, was there any magical or mechanical trouble? Brakes failed or something?" He knew well enough that certain Muggle made machines-- even those retrofitted magically-- would start showing flaws during inclement weather.

I have even read that a professor named, Golden Luigi on that day has died who was with the students at that time. I strongly believe that Voldemortist was behind it."

She wasn’t really sure what could’ve caused the second crash, as she didn’t really know the details surrounding it. She gave it a shot anyway though, “Maybe the train crashed the second time because someone cursed it so it would come off the tracks?” A guess was better than no effort at all, she decided.

But that had to wait for the man was now on the list of what was supposed to be the historical background of the magical train. Beezus nodded. Muggles, yes, it was constructed by those non-magic folk. And yes, it had broken down at least three times. Dementors on the first time with Dementors feeling a bit too friendly and decided to visit the students before they arrive at school. But really, Beatrice knew the Azkaban guards were looking for Sirius Black that time.

When Scabior asked for guesses on the second time the train broke, the Ravenclaw couldn't help but raise an eyebrow. The answer to that one was mentioned by one of their peers already. Quickly, she put her hand up.

"Professor, I believe Sierra Greigoth had already given a starting answer to that. As she said, during the journey to the school, it suddenly started snowing. It wasn't a usual occurrence because it was September," Snow in September? Yeah, that was just weird. "The train then ran into a snow bank, and got stuck and the students were forced to continue their way to Hogwarts on foot." Right Sierra? "..And in connection to what West Odessa said Professor, it was indeed assumed, uhh..well, actually it was proven thereafter that the wreckage had something to do with Lord Voldemortist killing a Professor and," *Head-shaking* "...a powerful book? I can't really remember. It was also reported that a dementor also made an appearance during that time."

Yes? Yes? She DID read Hogwarts, A History, quite a few times actually.

From time to time however, her eyes would still go back to the toy train. Yup, she wanted to play with the train.

As the lesson progressed a bit, they're now discussing on the 3 events in history that the train broke down and/or was stopped. Juliet knew about the 3, read or had possibly heard it from an adult but nothing much in particular. The details is a bit blur to her.

If she had to base her answer with the 1993 reason, which is the dementors stopping the train, then Juliet can come up with a basic answer as well. Her hand rose up "Someone evil or dark stopped the train... again" she said. Maybe not those dementors, maybe just something else. Something powerful and evil and dark and creepy.

Who knows.

Which is why she went back to her parchment for the time being and jotted down notes - including the list that Professor Scabior had put on the board.

She did end up raising an eyebrow in Elijah's direction for a moment. Purple? Really? Distracted for a moment from the rest of the discussion, it was actually Beezus who managed to bring the seventh year back in.


And hand went up. "Are you talking about the Book of Mysteria? Wasn't that the year that Hogwarts was entrusted to keep it safe?"

The Ravenclaw nodded, "It could be a rather dangerous book if it falls into the wrong hands." For inside were numerous powerful spells and potions. And well, the bearer would most likely transcends others.

"It was said that Lord Voldemortist had an undeniable interest on it." And that it was why he crashed the train in the first place.

SPOILER!!: notes
1. Relatively “new” (a hundred + years old)
2. Built by Muggle engineers
3. Pureblood families initially against it
4. Stopped on September first 1993 (because Dementor interference)
5. Ultimately the Ministry’s (Ottaline Gambol) idea
6. Created for a more discrete way of getting in and out of Hogwarts
7. One of the biggest Concealment charms ever was involved in its creation
8. One hundred and sixty seven memory charms used
9. Run by magic
10. Muggles can’t ride
11. Famous butts Famous people went on it
12. Stopped/crashed on September first 2048
13. Stopped again on September first 2078

She scanned the list to see how she could answer the question, snowfall and trains, "maybe some Dark Magic..." that was usually the answer when things went wrong in Hogwarts

Why would someone wanna do that? It sounded kinda stupid. for starters, she disliked snow quite a bit, so she couldn't see why anyone would ever want to make it just, "pop out of the ground"! A little was okay, a lot was NOT. Not in any way, shape, or form. But she couldn't control it, right? Why would anyone want to?

As for his question... well, that was hard. Louisa heard of that but she never really dwelt on the subject. She could assume, though. Clearing her throat and raising her hand, "Maybe some gangster wizards attacked it. They could be doing it for fun, as a dare, or were looking for someone important that's rumored to be on board." Like that part of the Anastasia story. Louisa had no idea, really. She was just interested in talking every once in a while to give the impression that she was very unfazed by the sparkly starey vamp.

So I say that I was man-made, and by a man who wanted something powerful.......that man was Lord Voldemortist. He was after something called the book of Mysteria......." Nate trailed off. That's all that Nate had to say about that simple question.

He found out from the other students that the train has been stopped twice before, and the event yesterday was the third time it happened. And now the professor is inquiring everyone on why it stopped for the second time.

I think those people who were perplexed with snow on September is correct... why would such a thing happen? ... he thought to himself. Other than that, he couldn't really think of any other reason. He also heard a few students mention someone named Lord Voldemortist.

Such an odd name ... he thought to himself. Although, he remembers his mother mentioning a similar name, when she was trying to bring him up to date to the Wizarding World just as he was preparing for his trip to Hogwarts. My mother said they called that guy, um, You-Know-Who, and someone named Harry Potter was able to overpower this dark lord. He was writing all of these things down on his parchment, as well as whatever the professor has written on the board. He's trying to connect the dots in his head.

So far, nothing is connecting, and he doesn't like it. He is very argumentative, but in this current scenario, where he is still totally in the dark, all he can do is sit quietly and tongue-tied.

...but the Ministry was filled some really awesome people, too. Like Sierra's father, for instance. ...and, wasn't Scabior dating one of the department heads? Hmph. Sounded like somebody was a little full of himself.

...and, why that second train crash happened?

Seemed right.

"I'm going to agree with those two," she said, raising her hand then gesturing in the West and Beezus's direction. "Could have been a powerful wizard, or it could have been the snow. Or both." One would think, though, if it had been just the snow, a magical train would have been equipped to handle that.

Again, she raised her eyebrows. Powerful wizard? Dead professor? Mysterious book?

Yeah. She agreed with all of the above being the answer. Ravvie Girl seemed to know what she was talking about, at least.

And Lottie was thinking on her reply to that when he LOUDLY to her announced which House she was in. Wrinkling-nose. No fair. Not the points, she could care less about those, how many points you earned and lost was never an indication of what a great wizard or witch one was...but...UGH. Being referred to as a Hufflepuff, she mentally shook her head.



Miss Morganzo?

Elliot?

That sparked her interest at the moment. Her eyes did follow the board. "It was exactly 30 years ago...," she almost whispered, but then raised her hand, points and the Hufflepuff bit forgotten for now, "Dark forces, perhaps?" because the Headmistress did seem to be in a hurry to get them off the train into Hogsmeade, so maybe she'd heard the story of what happened 30 years ago? "It seems it's the one time it did crash, compared to the other two. Something else might've been in the tracks." Or maybe someone was inside and dark wizards wanted to get rid of said person or something.

Now she wanted to ask...something that was probably off-topic...and she didn't want to be called 'Hufflepuff' again, so she'd better not ask anything and LIMIT herself--no, she wasn't limiting herself. Hand raised. "Where there any casualties back then?" did anyone die? If so, then...how was that relevant, exactly?
Uuuuh. "Technically? Yes." He nodded. The Puff that had a slight attitude problem possible was not that bad. Maybe she really belonged in Ravenclaw?

"If you have ever seen any gangster wizards i'd encourage you to take a picture of them so I can actually say they exist." Take a picture and then run. Or she would most likely be in trouble.

Oh man, he was interrupting an important converstation with his lesson. How could he do that? "It's true." Dash started dully. "Started when she was a ghost." No. It didn't. But what kind of seventh year let a second year student get to them?

West found that hilaaarious and he looked at Vivi, total mischief in his eyes.

And they were back to learning stuff. Kind of interesting stuff really. West thought trains were pretty awesome. He considered the question and then, hand up, suggested, "Locomotor Locomotive."

It had a ring to it, right?

It was not true, and both the professor and West got very hard looks before Vivi dropped her eyes. To her shoes. Hmm. Two shoes. Two annoying prats. Kismet.

But NO. She was working on impulse control, and besides, this particular professor had just proved to the entire class that he was using gossip and rumor as a source rather than hard cold facts. And that made him pretty much useless in her mind. If he couldn't tell the difference, then she didn't know that this class was going to do her a bit of good. Sigh.

Her hand went up at his question, a stiff line from her very stiff body since she was still working on that impulse to chuck her shoes at someone. "Perhaps not a spell to make it run, Professor, but I'm certain there are a number of Concealment Charms on the train to keep it from being noticed out in the countryside. We didn't exactly choose a low key color motif for it, did we?"

"Uh, Locomotion? And somebody's going to have to do the Locomotion to get it working again?" was Emmanuelle's rather crack pot suggestion. Well, it was something anyway. After all, she hadn't gone much deeper in her study of the train than what they had talked about already. "Maybe a little Soul Train thrown for good measure." Because, why not?

Cassia listened to the answers and what Professor Scabior commented on them. Hmmm....She somehow noticed that her history knowledge was kinda poor. Anyway, back to listening.

Well, that question was better because it had something to do with spells and not past events. So Cassia paused a bit then raised her hand hesitatingly . "Mmmm...Incendio probably, you know to help burn the coal or something." The train did have a coal car ,right? Well, hopefully yes because it would make Cassia look so much stupid if it didn't.

Technically...yes? So, that meant someone had died, yeah? Well, weren't they the lucky bunch that didn't have to deal with deaths this year. Good thing, definitely.

Thanks for answering without an attitude, Professor babysitter.

"Everyone tell me one spell or charm that you think Ottaline Gambol had placed on the Hogwarts express to get it running on magic."
OH. That explains it.

The crash happened so it'll cover someone else's death and one of the many Dark Lords that always existed could steal a BOOK which name could be mistaken for her last name? Ugh. The Dark Forces were so complicated. And dramatic.

ONE SPELL. Just one. Let's see...besides whatever Concealment, Memory and Disillusionment Charm...., her hand went up in the air as she thought of the Braking Charm brooms had, but will they really need the Charm if it was built by Muggles? That was included in the machinery, no? Besides the Floo Powder, Portkeys, Brooms and Side-Along Apparition, she knew very little about transportation. Still, hand up. "An Obliteration Charm, or some of those, you know...to erase its tracks, marks, or the sorts." As the train moved, of course.

OOC:The lesson will continue in approximately 16 hours.
Elliot was super bored of the train talk. But History was usually interesting. Scabior BETTER have something good up his sleeve, or Elliot would totally denounce him as the coolest professor...not that he held that title anyway..

OR did he?

Elliot didn't really know. He seemed to be strict, so she liked that...but he HAD just scolded her..so...hmmm....

She raised her, and said in her drawl, "Well, since trains usually run on coal or some sort of power source that muggles use, wouldn't magic have to replace that source? Can't the normal modes of power that muggles use not be mingled with magic? So he would have had to replace those power sources with...magical ones." Exactly which ones..

Well, Elliot didn't know. Nope.

Yeah...Kurumi was only mildly familiar with this part of Hogwarts' history, having sort of skimmed that section of the text. Reading such things late at night often left her with nightmares and needing to snuggle with a pillow. Yeah, some Gryffindor she was at times...

But now conversation had moved on to the Hogwarts Express itself. Kurumi's first spell notion was the same as what West had already voiced, so her hand stayed down for a moment until Vivi spoke again - mentioning the color of the train - and then her hand went back up. "Perhaps the color itself, the crimson, it a sort of enchantment? I mean...the paint. Sort of like what we use in Ancient Runes when we stain runes using red ochre. Could have been a magical activating agent," she mused. Then again, the whole paint on runes could also have been blood...and that just got her thinking rather morbid thoughts that sent a shiver down her spine.

Before answering the Professor's question, she turned to a nearby Slytherin girl who had asked about the train running on coal and shook her head. Leaning closer to her, she quietly responded, "I think it probably runs on magic of some kind now, but if it still rain on the Muggle fuel source, it would run on steam, not coal, because it was originally a steam powered engine."

Sitting back up straight and giving the other girl a warm smile, Sutton raised her hand to respond to the question. "Professor, I imagine it must have some sort of charm placed on it so that Muggles can't see it or find it even after it leaves Platform 9 3/4, right? I mean, otherwise people could sort of follow it, and that seems pretty dangerous for all of the students..." she responded. It sounded reasonable to her, yes? That had to be one of the biggest priorities was hiding it from the Muggles.

It had a ring to it, right?
Sophie was about to give the first answer that came to her mind, but before she could even raise her her, the Odessa boy was alreadyy saying exactly what she was going to say!

Except to that matching words bit. Sophie was just going to say "Locomotor". She did chuckle at his answer, as usual. Those things were what made it clear to the girl the reason why West and Theodore were best friends. Heh!

She raised her hand anyway. "It sure has some sort of Charm that won't let Muggles get near it. A repelling spell of some sort..." Like most of the magical places did. The ones that made Muggles remember something they were supposed to be doing or... whatever. Things like that.
