Default Charms 2 & Transfiguration 2 - Bigger is Better

___________________________
Upon entering the Charms Classroom, you find the desks neatly arranged as they usually are at the start of a lesson with rows evenly spaced and providing access should the Professor be forced to walk around.

Due to the rare presence of a brilliant morning sunshine at this time of year, the windows have been thrown open letting in the bright light and crisp winter morning air though it doesn't get too far thanks to the heating charms in place. There isn't much to be seen at the moment with the chalkboard blank and the Professor's desk looking organized...except maybe the cages placed on each student's desk.

The bars aren't very thick or secure looking, leaving one to only hope this lesson won't get anyone killed.

To the front of the room, the Professor stands leaned against his desk waiting for the students' arrival with his head buried in a book; an obvious tactic to ignore the other Professor in the room, you know, the one that couldn't keep her mouth shut about his Transfiguration Dilemma.
Be sure you read the rules before posting in this lesson. We'll be officially starting in maybe 10-12 hrs?

And the rules here because Professor Bellaire will eat you.


Class had begun!

Nodding at professor Quigg... or whatever it was. Professor charming that was much easier to remember. Really look at him. Anyway she was glad he appreciated the apple. She stood by her desk and eyed Bellaire. Yep. Her jaw dropped when Q told her it was fine to sit down. "You don't have to tell me twice." She sat down in her seat. Ha she smirked but no directly at Bellaire. But it was totally for her.

20 points? Well that was a lot. Probably more than she had earned all term. She was not standing up again. She wasn't going to pass on a chance to rebel against Bellaire. She wasn't even taking transfiguration this term. She was here to be attending the Charms lesson. And they were in the charms classroom, too. So guess what that's who she was listening to. She bit her tongue, really wanting to say something about how childish they were being.

Mental note to self don't ever attend a joint lesson again.

Well let's see how well the rest of the lesson goes. Dragons..... She raised her hand. "I think that if you properly trained. I don't see why you couldn't have one." She would take training on dragons to keep one as long as she didn't have these two children of professors teaching it.

curly haired prefect - "sometimes I get angry!" - 30/90 - *chicken emoji* - probably @ Disney - I speak dog

Caleb was calling it - this lesson was going to be a complete nightmare. He'd sat down because he was in QUIGLEY'S classroom - therefore, Quigley's rules should apply. It was a simple concept that Bellaire didn't seem to be able to grasp. The standing rule was dumb anyways, in his opinion. What was this, military school?? He wasn't sure WHY they had even agreed to this joint lesson if they clearly despised each other. Maybe Truebridge was forcing them to do it as some sort of punishment for fighting with each other...THAT made more sense.

Thank MERLIN the lesson had finally started. He raised his hand to answer the question...he had a LOT to say about dragons, actually. "I think it makes total sense to ban them as pets. It's the same kind of idea as not being allowed to have a lion or a rhino as a pet - they're much larger and stronger than you and can easily flip a switch and turn on you in a split second, which could cost you your life. They're not domesticated like dogs and cats and probably never will be. Considering they could char broil you in less than a minute, I'm ok with that," he added. Dragons were cool and all, but seriously - they could get that BBQ whipped up in five seconds flat and it was not worth the risk.

"I could see where people tried to get around it, thinking if they raised the dragon from birth they'd be ok and be able to control it. It'd probably be easier to do that in a more deserted area, say...Siberia or something. I mean, a giant dragon has to fly and stretch it's wings, you wouldn't be able to keep that secret if there's people around," he explained. "But like I said - people have tried to raise tigers and stuff from kittens and that didn't work either," he finished.

Yes. Caleb was very anti-dragons-as-pets. They were SUPER COOL to look at and hang out with for maybe an hour or so, but anything past that....he was totally fine with just hanging with pups, thank you very much.

Quigley had threatened to take ten points off of anyone who stood. Bellaire had threatened to take twenty points off of anyone who sat down. And Grayson? Grayson was sitting there chanting 'FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT' in his head.

Really, this was the beginning of a glorious lesson. Dude was well chuffed.

And even moreso when Quigley went on to ask them a question about FREAKING DRAGONS. THIS was what he was talking about. His blue eyes scanned the room and landed on one Dima Toussaint, a wide smile settling in. Did Dragon Boy HEAR what the lesson was about? DID HE?

Yeah. Alright. He was gonna calm down then.

Still smiling widely, the Slytherin raised his hand up in the air. "Dragons are freaking awesome." Among other words he could mention but Dima WAS in this classroom so...... "See, people say that they're dangerous and will kill you or whatever which is fair enough but I feel like that's kiiiiinda the scared part of them talking. People are kinda scared of them so they decided to not allow other people to have them. Safety and all." Which was kinda ruining the fun, if you asked him. "And then there's the whole magic part and letting people know that this world exists."

"People can keep them for themselves, which is illegal and all, but that doesn't mean that it's not possible." Juuuuust saying.

Janelle's head was going back and forth like she was at a tennis match. This was crazy. Stand up, sit down, stand up again. If she had wanted an exercise class, this would not have been the place she would have chosen. Janelle didn't know what to do. And now they were threatening to take away house points. Whaaaat?

Thankfully, Professor Charms called class to order and they were allowed to sit. Then he threw out a question about dragons. Janelle raised her hand to give her thoughts on the topic. "I think we aren't allowed to have dragons because they're dangerous. If you aren't trained to handle them and don't know what you're doing, you could get hurt or killed." Still, Janelle thought that dragons were totally cool and she would love to see one up close. As for how to get around the rule, she wasn't sure. She did know that where there was a will there was a way and people always found ways to get around the rules.

Eh...

Ehhhhhhh.....Maddox didn't remember signing up for all this. Finally, he raised his hands, quieting the students with their questions and suggestions because a glance at the clock told him they needed to get started NOW or they would never get through the idea thing.

"Alright, alright. I think it's time we get settled." Not their fault they weren't settled, he wouldn't be throwing that on them. "I'll ask you guys to sit because we'll be beginning now." Unless Bellaire figured they'd stand through the whole thing? He didn't think so. Maddox watched the chalk rise from his desk as he took another munch of his apple.

"As usual, we'll begin with a simple question or two." Hopefully they were on the same page and beyond the...er...display earlier. "Dragons. Why aren't we allowed to have them and how do you think people could skirt this rule? Note, I don't mean Ministry regulated reasons, I mean why do you think the way you do about this topic."


OOC: Class has officially begun, please don't post your charrie arriving after this point unless you want to face the IC consequences ^^ we'll move this in maybe 12-18 hrs




Oh the dichotomy!


Cutty had pretended to be two different people for the two different professors and thus, it made itself into a dilemma for which persona to chose. Bellaire, though, was practically their Head of House, though and as the witch was still standing, he would not sit himself without her expressed permission. He made himself content to remain standing behind his desk (near Agatha Hapgood) when Professor Quigley asked them a question.

Cutty braced himself for the ethereal whisp of Beverly Wayne's enthusiasm from where he stood as the first word of the topic leaped out. Dragons. Putting a hand up he had this to offer, "I can't imagine dragons would make terribly good pets. They're bigger than us for one and it takes an awfully lot of magic to control them, more than yer average wizard or witch could muster on his or her own, being that they are magical creatures. Also, they need alorra space to survive. Though, yer might get around this if yer cleveh with undetectable extension charms to assure they're enclosure is spacious enough and amplifying magic like Ancient Runes. Oh, and yew'd probably want to be well skilled at healing and disillusionment charms as well as vanishing spells for cleanliness reasons." Ah, poop. The great comforting thought.

He thought about the other answers in class and rubbed the edge of his tie at the things Zeke, Paloma and Dante B. were saying. What sort of unhealthy diversions, Robles? H'mm, what sort?

Kate still had no idea what this class was even about so far. Apparently, the two professors couldn't get along, and Evie had wisely called them out on it. Way to go, Ravenclaw! So now that all the confusion was behind them and class was finally underway, Kate turned her attention to Quigley, who was beginning the lesson.

DRAGONS!

Kate's mom was a Dragonologist, and she was even a Dragon Research in the Ministry. Quigley didn't want a Ministry answer, though. He wanted a Kate answer. She raised her hand. "We're not allowed to have them, because they aren't ours to have," she said. Well, it was true. Dragons shouldn't belong to humans. "Also because they're meant to be in a different environment and not confined to somebody's property. We can't easily control them, so there's no telling what they would do if we tried to." She had no idea how anybody could skirt the rule, but she was guessing the professors had some way to teach them.

Well, her small protest hadn't done anything. Quigley just told them all to shut up and move on. With a defeated smile, Evie got down from her chair before plopping her bum into it instead. But before they moved on, she spotted Dante out of the corner of her eye give her a thumbs up. Evie grinned a little and gave him a little wave. She'd have to catch him after class.

And onto dragons... Evie pondered the subject and raised her hand. "Well, they're dangerous, for one reason. And I think there should be some kind of general rule that you shouldn't have a pet that's bigger than you. Dragons are independent creatures; they're not meant to be pets." If we left them alone, they'd probably be fine. The muggles would freak out, but... whatever.

AHSJDKDV DRAGONS? They were gonna talk about DRAGONS?

Where was Kyroh?

"I think that no one should be allowed to HAVE dragon because they're living creatures and are not to be owned. But we shouldn't have to go to reservations or something to see them!! They deserve to be free and out and about and anywhere they please, just like US because that is fair." Nod. Nod nod. Bit off on a tangent, but so TRUE.

Although having a pet dragon would be awesome.

Echo was really happy that she was following the older students because they seemed to know what they were doing.. and wait... dragons... *gulp* they were way to big and scary. Maybe thats why she loved her mouse Klein so much, so tiny and cute. Raising her hand she gave a venture at an answer "Professors, maybe we are not allowed to have them because they are so dangerous, mostly their fire that comes from their mouths?" didn't want anyones houses to burn down now did we. Lowering her hand after she finished she sat and listened to everyone else's answers.

Kyroh was starting to get upset with some peoples answers. Really really really upset.

His hands were balled up into fists and his head was placed on his desk. He couldn't voice his answer either because this was CATMAN'S and Bellaire's class. As Dima spoke Kyroh raised his head a tiny bit and nodded. Slowly his hand went up. "We aren't allowed to have them because like Dima said we just shouldn't. We don't know how to take care of them, and a lot of people don't know the first thing about dragons. They aren't like kneazles or goldfish, they know how to take care of themselves and if we try to step in we might make matters worse. Thats why everyones thinks dragons are so vicious and dangerous. Probably cause when people first tried to take them they had to act in self defence. I figure Dragons are really nice and friendly but they are only a product of their environment and living on reservations and possibly being taking care of by someone who doesn't know how to take care of you is a sucky environment."

......but seeing as HE knew how to take care of dragons that meant he should have one as a FRIEND. Not a pet.

Dragons? Would they be doing something that involved dragons? What did this have to do with charms and transfiguration? They would have had a CoMC lesson if they were going to be working with real dragons, right? The notice for the lesson had said that they would need bravery and a strong stomach. Penelope was not sure that she had those. She was worried about why they would need bravery and a strong stomach. "Most people wouldn't know what they were doing if they had a dragon, and that wouldn't be good for the dragon or any people near it."

Penelope looked over at Kyroh when he was speaking. She liked his answer. Did he know a lot about dragons? He really liked dragons, didn't he? Actually, they had been discussing a dragon in that History of Magic class a few years ago when- no, she wasn't going to think more about that. Even when Kyroh had finished speaking, Penelope still didn't take her eyes off of him.

The whole standing up and sitting down thing had been oddly upsetting. Toby knew that whatever he did he'd end up upsetting the other professor, so just ended up doing whatever the last one had said and hoping the other didn't get too mad. But he was getting upset, though he'd never admit it, and hopefully wasn't letting on.

The sixth year sat down once again (having stood after Bellaire made her threat), and decided that if they were told to stand up again that he'd just slide under his desk and hide it out down there and freak out where nobody could see him. But it wasn't necessary. Because dragons.

Well, because Quigley had started talking about dragons, and Bellaire hadn't said anything else. Okay, phew. His heart rate could chill now.

So yeah, dragons. Toby didn't speak at first, he was sort of... nervous about saying anything at all. Like... this felt like a class where just ONE WRONG STEP could be disastrous. So at first he stayed quiet and looked around the room and eventually his eyes found Kyroh. Passionate topic for the kid, right? .... Yep. Yes it was. Toby watched the Ravenclaw for just a little while longer, juuuuuust making sure he wasn't about to blow up at anyone or something, before raising his own hand and looking back at Quigley.

"Professor... I don't think it's wise to get around the rule at all," he said, referring to the second part of his question. "If we could just... coexist... that'd be cool, y'know?" One not owning the other, one not threatening or feeling threatened by the other. It would be neat.

Whereas one had been polite in his addressing of Layla, the other had demanded rather than asked and Layla had decided that it was she who should learn respect.

How many points exactly would she lose if she just straight-up walked out of this moronic classroom? She was oh so tempted.

She sat. Mostly because she was fed up of standing around watching these two fight and she wanted the lesson over and done with quicker. Why were they doing a lesson together if they were incapable of getting along?

She ignored everything that was happening and continued to stare at the cage in front of her blocking out the sounds of everyone in the classroom, the frown she had intended to leave at the door permanently etched across her face. Take the points from her, see if she cared. She was here to learn anyway.

The lesson thankfully started but Layla didn't bother answering. She was going to spend this whole lesson listening and taking notes. She didn't need to contribute, she didn't even want to be here. As for what her answer would be? Because they were dangerous. Because letting lose a dragon in the middle of the countryside would be a stupid idea?

Wasn't that obvious?


No answer. Right. Those happened occasionally. Nothing he could do about this one, might as well move on. One didn't pull an answer out of a student that would rather not say and he didn't think he could be bothered with trying either. When she was ready to say something then maybe she would. If not, eh.

That way they can sell them on the black market, use them to eliminate their enemies or use them for dragon fights and things to make money from."

That was a thing, wasn't it?


The most obvious and probably sole reason behind that law in the first place. "Very much correct, dragons are dangerous and thus off limits. I'm not very sure wizards...or anyone for that matter, would be able to coax them into fighting matches though. Given their massive size and aggression they would inevitably break free and do as they please."

If you couldn't domesticate them then it was highly unlikely one would be able to train them into secret fights. "Interesting line of thought though.'

How rude. How. RUDE.

Agatha did not like him nor his silly subject. Nevermind the fact she's skipped many of his lessons so it was also her fault she didn't know Charms that well.

No. She was standing and would only sit down when professor Bellaire told her to.

See, professor Q-whatever, Agatha could be defiant too. AND she could ignore your question.

RUDE man.

Eyes on professor Bellaire because SHE was worth to be listened to.


He'd already said they could sit, given the lesson was beginning but...she was content to stand anyway?

Wow.

Right then. He didn't see Bellaire making them sit any time soon and he wouldn't waste his breath trying again so...given her lack of contribution to the topic Maddox simply let his eyes glance over her before moving on to someone else that actually thought giving a response was the point of asking a question. He didn't have time for this.

But that gets old after a while.


Talk about a conspiracy theory. "Sure. Let's say for argument's sake, it is possible to domesticate a dragon and have it do our bidding. In a case like that it would be very bad for the Government because no one would have to listen to them anymore, they would simply set their pet dragons on them. It would be equally bad if those in power held the dragons because then...heh, we'd be better off moving to another planet and hoping they don't follow." There was a limit to how much power one should be allowed to have.

There is always that one person that ruins everything for others. "You know those people... I can't have a dragon so nobody can." But there was ways around that. Oh yes. "We're wizards though. We can just put an invisible charm on them. Or put a horn on their head and swear that it's a scaly unicorn." Totes could work.


Hah. Haha. Maddox actually allowed himself a chuckle. Spoken like a true Gryffindor. "Definitely." And a solemn nod to boot. "But sometimes those boring people have the right idea." Something to remember; something he'd taken a while to learn himself. "I'm afraid a horn wouldn't be enough of a disguise either." Massive scaley beast with a horn attached to its head--well actually, now he kinda wanted to see something like that, just for seeing it sake.

"Thank you for the interesting imagery Miss Valentine." Sounded like something that would happen if he attempted any serious Transfiguration spells.

Leaning back in her seat as she thought more on the topic, “as for getting around not having them – people might shrink them down using the Diminuendo charm?” she offered as she brushed her hair off of her shoulder.



"Their size and strength does add to the fear that others have of the large creatures. The inability to domestic them as well. You just never know with that kind of creature but yes, shrinking would work--so long as the spell was periodically reapplied and there was enough power behind the cast in the first place." Excellent point.

He was hoping someone would mention the black market. It WAS a thing in case some of them had been told by their parents that it was all a myth. He smile, pleased with the point. "Many things go on in the black market that can be considered questionable or 'unhealthy' as you put it. Never know when the dragon will fall into the worst hand it possibly can."

Another good point.

If his parents knew, they'd kill him. Except the didn't know. HEH.


Misunderstood. Now where had her heard THAT before? probably his wife if he really thought about it. Almost everything seemed to be 'misunderstood' when it came to that woman.

"I'm not sure I'd advise that, mostly because it could swallow you whole one day then fly off and no one would ever know because they aren't aware you have a dragon hidden away somewhere. Then if it coughs you up, you could get arrested for it after, if you aren't dead that is." See the problem?

Dragons were not meant to be disguised.


"Disguise is another excellent means of skirting the law so long as the disguise is legit enough." Imagine if it wasn't, the young Hufflepuff would only look like a ridiculous criminal and that was the least rated kind of the lot. Something to think about for another day.

"But I imagine that if we could breed a domestic line that wasn't partial to eating people, they would be pretty neat to have and more readily accepted, as a pet and a working creature." Like draft horses. "They're intelligent, strong, can make a good roast and fly!"

But how to breed a domestic line? "Muggles might have some ideas on how to pacify them. They keep smaller versions, like bearded dragons, just without the wings and fire-breathing." The cool stuff.


"That actually isn't a half bad idea Miss Neverwinter..." The expression that had grown on his face as he contemplated the idea made this evident enough. Huh. Imagine a smaller breed of dragon, pygmy dragons maybe that could still make a good roast.

"Something you could work toward or an idea you could sell to those more inclined." It'd be a great money maker too. Dragons were a fascination. Everyone would want one.

Bellaire had been the one to kick him out of class and she WAS more scary than Quigley but he should also listen to him. After walking a step back and forth, he finally came to the decision to enter the classroom.

He said down after Quigley's threat of losing points but then stood back up after Bellaire's threat. The Gryffindor was already angry and mixed with extreme confusion was a bad combination. Why weren't they thrown in detention? ! Stupid adults. And he had to pay respect to them when they didn't even respect their own colleagues? ! STUPID!

Finally, class started with the first question and Kevin sat down not caring about the points anymore. He listened to the question and then opened his mouth to answer.

No sound came out. Right... stupid silencing spell! They weren't going to control him when to speak right? !


...

.....

He'd actually forgotten he was still silenced. Maddox would have thought the woman would remove her own spell once the boy was back at his seat but apparently not? Well, that left it up to him. With one quick cast, the spell was removed and the boy was now in control of the image he would make for himself in the minutes to come.

"Sorry about that, Mister Hirase." He could do with that apology whatever he wanted.

HA HA HA

At least they were entertaining.

Finally the lesson had started and Quigley let them to sit since the lesson had started and they were talking about dragons. Raising her hand, the brunette girl gave her opinion. "I think because dragons could danger the wizards and muggles and only capable wizards like the dragonologist could handle them." Maybe she's the only one in this class that didn't feel excited about having the dragon. She doesn't like any kind of animals or magical creatures.


"This is very true. Yes. It takes training to be able to work with dragons and even then, though individuals can sometimes run into problems while handling the creatures."

Something some people conveniently forget.

"Because most people will start using them the wrong way," Though was there a right way to use dragons? They were dragons!


"This is under the assumption they would be able to control them, yes?" Even in all this discussion it was important to remember that 'controlling' a dragon was like controlling the wind. You could harness its power but you couldn't truly dictate what it did. "So yes, under that hypothetical assumption, they would be banned in order to prevent their misuse at the hands of those who don't necessarily have the world's best interest at heart."

Lot of people like those walking around.

Angel then stopped to get her breath before continuing. "Professor, do people hide them in caves and things like that to get around the rules?" Angel thought about some of the books she had read.


.......Uh-huh.............

"Thank you for sharing with us, Miss Valentine...." Though, admittedly, he didn't need to know all that and it probably had very little to do with why they couldn't have dragons but sure. "You should also consider that the fact you haven't seen a dragon has a lot to do with the fact that none have escaped and entered into 'human territory' for ages."

When was the last dragon gone haywire story anyway?

"A safe route to take Miss Holiday considering, like many of your classmates said, a dragon is a dangerous creature that shouldn't be fiddled with."

"We can't have them because they are misunderstood and not everyone would know or be able to handle them. And Muggles would see them but they could be disallusioned like hippogriffs and flying horses. "


"They could be disillusioned like other creatures have been, yes. The problem of control would be the real deal breaker. Like you said, the dragons aren't truly understood--and if they are then we should know that their nature doesn't lend for them to be up and about with humans--especially not muggles."

Merlin knew they were horrible enough at staying alive without the added danger of magical creatures.

"Oh make no mistake, Miss Carrington, they are scary menacing creatures, but that's how they're meant to be. Dragons are to be held in awe, not tied down and domesticated. Educating would only get wizards so far. We need to learn a thing or two about distance."

Don't get him wrong, he was a fan of being able to see dragons up close at reserves but the truth was the truth. What business did they have keeping them locked in areas and restricting where they travelled?

There wasn't much she could add that hadn't already been said so she kept quiet instead pulling out some parchment, her quill, both the Charms and Transfiguration textbooks and whatever else she'd need. For now note taking would do, so jotting down some notes she sat calmly her eyes looking at the cage quite often.


Well at least this one that decided to be quiet wasn't doing it out of defiance. Maddox could appreciate the fact she'd given him her attention while she took notes. There was hope for some of them yet, this little Slytherin was proof of that and perhaps later she would have something of her own to contribute to the lesson.

Well let's see how well the rest of the lesson goes. Dragons..... She raised her hand. "I think that if you properly trained. I don't see why you couldn't have one." She would take training on dragons to keep one as long as she didn't have these two children of professors teaching it.


"The problem is that you cannot 'properly' train a dragon, Miss Bayless." Great men had tried and half those great men were dead. Man was he glad he wasn't one of them. Life was a precious thing and he liked living it. "A dragon cannot be domesticated, it's not in their nature. At the end of the day they are wild and have a thirst for freedom and the skies."

So yeah, there was a problem with having one, but he wasn't law enforcement or creature control so it didn't matter too much to him. What did matter was not having any of his students die from misinformation.

"But like I said - people have tried to raise tigers and stuff from kittens and that didn't work either," he finished.


"A common mistake I'll have to agree. Raise it from birth, call it your baby, think it's only playing when it singes your hair the first couple times then call it love when it roasts you alive." People were weird, their ideas of domestication were weird and he didn't think he wanted to get into that too much.

"Excellent point Mister Newell." No, seriously. He hoped they were taking notes on this. He didn't want anyone dying on his account some time in the distant future.

"People can keep them for themselves, which is illegal and all, but that doesn't mean that it's not possible." Juuuuust saying.


Was it just him...or did this one seem REALLY amused by everything happening in the classroom so far? Snort. Leave it to a Slytherin. Maddox let him have it; even he was willing to admit the earlier display was ridiculous completely Bellaire's fault for the record.

"The fear is one reason they are kept off the 'allowed' list. Their power is the kind that you don't mess around with all willy nilly and we certainly can't have them flying around defenseless muggles braver than Godric Gryffindor himself." He knew the type though he could never figure what made them so confident.

If he walked around without magic he wouldn't go poking half the things he did. Just saying.

Still, Janelle thought that dragons were totally cool and she would love to see one up close. As for how to get around the rule, she wasn't sure. She did know that where there was a will there was a way and people always found ways to get around the rules.


"Precisely. There is a risk for getting yourself hurt or dead if you decide to try messing with creatures that were not meant to be interfered with. Thank you Miss Guidry." Something else they should take note of.

Oh, and yew'd probably want to be well skilled at healing and disillusionment charms as well as vanishing spells for cleanliness reasons." Ah, poop. The great comforting thought.

He thought about the other answers in class and rubbed the edge of his tie at the things Zeke, Paloma and Dante B. were saying. What sort of unhealthy diversions, Robles? H'mm, what sort?


Aaaannndddd Mister Mordaunt wanted to remain standing as well. He would admit he was disappointed with this one, given the lesson had started and most everyone had taken a seat but he wouldn't physically be forcing anyone into a seat if they preferred to stand until directed otherwise so...moving on to the boy's response.

"Yes, exactly. This is half the problem. Their massive size and power. It would take a lot to keep them under control and under control they wouldn't be themselves. It's quite the dilemma."

He would admit he liked the idea of the undetectable extension charms to give them room to roam. Definitely.

She had no idea how anybody could skirt the rule, but she was guessing the professors had some way to teach them.


This might have been one of the most fundamental and most accurate of the responses thus far. "Precisely, Miss Addison. We did not bring them into this world and have no claim to them. It's not fair to rob them of their freedom for our amusement." Not that that stopped the wider wizarding world.

"Confinement doesn't suit a dragon very well."

And onto dragons... Evie pondered the subject and raised her hand. "Well, they're dangerous, for one reason. And I think there should be some kind of general rule that you shouldn't have a pet that's bigger than you. Dragons are independent creatures; they're not meant to be pets." If we left them alone, they'd probably be fine. The muggles would freak out, but... whatever.


Oh, she'd gotten off the chair. Well, he'd thought it was a good stand while it lasted and why not with all the crazy that was going around the room anyway? Still, he was glad she'd opted to sit unlike a few in the class that were adamant they would remain standing. Hah. Fat chance Bellaire would remember to grant them permission with the class having already moved on.

"I fully agree with you on that one Miss Shacklebolt." What did one do with something of tremendous size? If it got annoyed at you one day it could snap you in two without a second's thought. "Their independence doesn't go well with holding them as someone's personal possession. Those two concepts don't mesh well." YOU try explaining to a dragon that it belonged to you.

They deserve to be free and out and about and anywhere they please, just like US because that is fair." Nod. Nod nod. Bit off on a tangent, but so TRUE.

Although having a pet dragon would be awesome.


"Thank you Mister Toussaint, perfectly right. Like I was saying to Miss Addison just now, we did not bring dragons into this world and therefore have no true claim to 'possessing' them outside of our might and drive to conquer." 'Our' being a generalization rather than a specification of course but he didn't think he'd need to explain all that. The boy was a sharp one maybe too sharp sometimes.

"Dragons shouldn't be confined, it's not healthy and may even stunt their growth depending on the kind of confinement." But he wasn't the CoMC Professor and wouldn't be going too much into that EITHER.

Raising her hand she gave a venture at an answer "Professors, maybe we are not allowed to have them because they are so dangerous, mostly their fire that comes from their mouths?" didn't want anyones houses to burn down now did we. Lowering her hand after she finished she sat and listened to everyone else's answers.


Maddox nodded at the response offered by the young Slytherin. "They are dangerous, yes, and for this reason there are laws that prevent us from owning them. For our own safety really because not everyone exercises common sense." Unfortunately.

As Dima spoke Kyroh raised his head a tiny bit and nodded. Slowly his hand went up. "We aren't allowed to have them because like Dima said we just shouldn't. We don't know how to take care of them, and a lot of people don't know the first thing about dragons. They aren't like kneazles or goldfish, they know how to take care of themselves and if we try to step in we might make matters worse. Thats why everyones thinks dragons are so vicious and dangerous. Probably cause when people first tried to take them they had to act in self defence. I figure Dragons are really nice and friendly but they are only a product of their environment and living on reservations and possibly being taking care of by someone who doesn't know how to take care of you is a sucky environment."

......but seeing as HE knew how to take care of dragons that meant he should have one as a FRIEND. Not a pet.


Lookit that, he wouldn't consider the boy new and reformed but he was making a positive contribution to the class and that went a long way right about now. "Thank you for expounding on Mister Toussaint's point. Well said." But he'd just finished explaining the fact they didn't put dragons here and have no claim to them; he didn't want to have to go through all that again. Evidently Mister Scabior was on point here.

"There is one thing though; dragons are dangerous. Whether intentionally or not is debatable but their size and power renders them a hazard to safety so it's not that we think they're dangerous but, rather, we know they are. Well stated though."

He wasn't even being sarcastic, fancy that.

Penelope was not sure that she had those. She was worried about why they would need bravery and a strong stomach. "Most people wouldn't know what they were doing if they had a dragon, and that wouldn't be good for the dragon or any people near it."


"Correct and this makes it even more dangerous. If you don't know how to handle them you're not likely to be living for long." You think more people would realize this but they were too busy WANTING and wanting some more. "I like to think the dragon would be able to take care of itself, it'd probably liberate itself first chance it got. I'd be more worried about the human."

Perhaps 'worried' was too strong a word...really if you were dumb enough to try keeping a dragon all willy nilly you probably deserved it.

"Fair enough." He said with a small, understanding nod. Not everyone had a thing about getting around regulations. Years of meeting different people taught him that. You had the ones that boldly broke rules, the kind that skirted them and the kind that did nothing about them.

"Nothing wrong with leaving things the way they currently are."



With the last of the responses finished Maddox went back to the ropic at hand. "Like many of you said, dragons are dangerous and would make horrible pets. As some of your classmates mentioned, we should not be domesticating these beasts. They are independent and thrive best when they are free. Not to mention the harm one can bring on themselves just trying to own one." It just didn't seem worth it in the end.

"Now I asked some ways to skirt the law of 'no owning dragons' and while many of you gave some interesting suggestions, there's one you all overlooked. One that's perfectly legal, convenient and the swish of a wand away."

Was it a swish? He....actually didn't remember. When did he ever really need such a spell?

The chalk got busy writing before coming to a stop again.

Benny listened intently as Professor disagreed or agreed with each student who answered, including himself. But he had to admit his eyes kept trailing to the cage before him before he managed to pull his gaze away each time. He had to be patient and await whatever it was that was to come during the course of the class. Even if it was a struggle he was sure his close friends, especially Adi, were well aware he was likely going through.

A class...involving dragons.

Upon the writing on the chalkboard, his eyes even widened.

A class involving CREATING dragons.

Forget they weren't truly real, anymore then he had been a real unicorn for AJ in the last History of Magic lesson. But still! It certainly got this Gryffindor's attention. Even if the lesson was being passed onto Professor Bellaire. Was she finally going to teach him something he really really wanted to learn?

Naturally Beverly disagreed with a lot of the things mentioned. Sure dragons were dangerous and all, but thanks to a trusty charm she would one day make history. She did agree with Professor Quigley that dragons were independent and best when free, though.

Jotting down what she liked and what she thought was better than other things, she considered the man's following words. Just like that, though, her concentration was quickly broken by the words written on the board.

Dragon-freaking-Creation Spell.

Hah. No way. Haha. OH MERLIN.

Her attention was 100% on Bellaire, eyes not even blinking.

Oh great she was up? Yippee.falllalaaaa. She was just falling over herself with excitement to begin a lesson with the jerk face children who let Mr. Incompetent convince them to break rules over five measly points.

She sat on the edge of his desk, maybe accidentally pushing one or two off with her bum.

Could they tell she was thrilled to be here? NOT!

"We'll be creating dragons from stones." She said simply. SHe waved her wand lazily and words appeared in chalk on the board.

Quote:
Incantation: Draconifors
Wand movement: slashing movement at the target (left to right)


"In order to do this we will be using the dragonifors spell." Despite her foul mode she made an effort to actually voice what was on the board for those who had trouble seeing the information. Fair shot at learning for everyone and all that.

"I will demonstrate..." She reached under Quackface's table and pulled out a box of rocks then took a decent size one up and placed it on his desk.

"Dragonifor.." She said smoothly and clearly as she made the slashing movement with her wand. The fiery red dazzled in her eyes, making it almost look like she had the actual flames coming from her pupils. The rock made a seamless transformation into a Hungarian horntail dragon. "Beautiful" She put her hand out and her dragon hopped up unto it.

"You'll need to visualize the dragon you want to create in your mind. It's all about intent. Focus." She gave her dragon a gentle pet on the head. "Once you have created your dragon you'll have to ensure it's cooperative, if it's not that means you have botched the spell and the dragon will be taken away." Was that clear enough or did they need furr face to clarify on a matter her knew nothing about...AGAIN. Hmph!

"The aim is to create the dragon and get it into the cage for the second part of the lesson."


ooc: You need at least 3 posts creating the dragon and getting it into the cage. If it is that your character is suuuper smart and gets it on the first try...interact with the dragon. Please do not get wildly out of control but of course..go forth and have fun. Professors are here to bounce questions off of. xoxo

Default Post #1 & Questions :)
~ Rise and Rise Again, Until Lambs become Lions ~

To say that Amur was excited that the Professor thought her idea was good, was an understatement. For him to say that he thought it had promise made the wheels in her mind turn at double time.

Until the discussion turned to reasons why dragons shouldn't be domesticated, or bred with such intent. Her mood sunk and she listened quietly, staring at the cage. They loved to fly, to have freedom. How fair would it be to stunt their natural instinct, just so they could be cuddled or pull a cart? Not fair, not fair at all. What was that called? Enslavement?

Yeah no. Amur pushed her idea away readily and decided that she would not go into the 'breeding' area of profession. No. Animals and creatures should stay as they were intended to be. Free. In the sky, in the sea or on land. The Professor made that very clear, and his passion for such an opinion convinced Amur that it was right.

That was until, they were told they were going to create dragons. Wide eyes and conflicting emotions ensued. Sure, creating a dragon was an amazing, awesome, exciting concept. But, the details...

Amur watched the demonstration with reserved awe, thoughts running about in circles in her head. When they were given the go-ahead, Amur slipped out of her chair and made her way up to the desk to collect a rock from the box. Finding a medium-sized one, she turned it in her hand slowly, before looking at both Professors.

"How does this work? I mean, does the dragon have it's own mind? Does it feel? Will it feel? Will it think? What happens to those that aren't created properly? Where do they go? What do we do with them once we are done the lesson? Will they be turned back to stone?" That was a horrid question. To give something life - mobile, breathing, thinking, feeling life - and then to take it away again. Sometimes, she didn't understand magic. Not one bit.

Had she missed something?

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

Because he was silenced by that stupid woman. Kevin thought it was the perfect opportunity to say bad words about everything because no one would be able to hear him anyways. He didn’t even pay attention to the other students answering Quigley’s questions and leaned back in his chair while mumbling under his breath about it being unfair and ridiculous that he had to listen to those two who didn’t even respect each other as teachers which reminded him that they were “stupid professors” he mumbled

…………………O___o he had heard that! He had heard his own voice and not just in his head. He quickly pretended to cough before looking at the board. Dragon creation spell. Now THAT was AWESOME! Suddenly interested in class, Kevin sat upright in his chair and then listened pretty intently as she explained the spell and he even let out an impressed “woah” when she successfully transfigurated an Hungarian Horntail dragon.

He couldn’t wait to start as well and although he was really excited in his mind, his face looked normal, almost bored. BUT HE WAS EXCITED CAUSE CREATING DRAGONS YO! But because he was cool he couldn’t show that yup.

This time, he didn’t use the accio spell to grab a rock because he knew that Quigley would just take it back , like he did in that one class. So he got up from his seat and walked to the front to grab a rock, giving Quigley a small nod for letting him back in class and unsilencing him …yes he knew he had done that because who else? Cause he was sure that Bellaire would have loved to keep his voice hidden for the rest of the year… so that nod was a token of appreciation. Accept it, Cat Man.

Seated at his desk again, Kevin grabbed his phoenix wand and then closed his eyes. The only dragon he knew was the Chinese Fireball that his mother had told him about a few times. Aggressive, fast and clever. And not to be messed with when angered. Kind of like him. Heh. He visualised the scarlet and smooth scaled body. And the fringe of golden spikes around its face. When he had done that he got ready to perform the spell.

See, Professor Q did understand and if the government had dragons than yes. They should go to a different planet. That was of course if people could tame dragons. Which Dante did not know if it was possible. Still it sounded cool in theory. And wait...where they going to make their own dragons. Was that were Q was going with this. And they would have full ownership of it. Whatever that means. As long as it was his. Still best have a tiny dragon that you could have as a pet. Since you know Dante was not a giant or anything.

He turned his attention to Bellaire because Q said he was handing it over to her. Since it was Transfig and all...Oh stones. And that spell sounded like a flower or something. Well at least it was only intent and focus.

And if they had a out of control dragon. It would be taken away. Well not as fun as having having to control it. But well an out of control dragon could be horrible for Dante and the classroom.

So Dante guessed he had to start now.

The Idea Man Kori-Kins

Angel listened to the Professors, where they both cray cray or were they just trying to scare her into next week, because if that was the case they had just succeeded.

Dragons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She had heard that right, right? Angel blinked twice just to make sure she wasn't dreaming. She then had to put it in a cage right? Angel was a bit scared didn't dragons shoot fire and the main question she wanted too know was who on earth came up with a spell to create Dragons, well at least Benny and Adi should be happy now.

When she was told she could, she made her way to the Professor desk and got a rock then she went back to her desk, the first thing she needed to do was practice the incantation.

"Dragonifors!!" Angel said in her head, well that sounded right but she would have another try in a minute, first she just realised she should make sure she had everything.

No Catman. You were wrong.

Anyways-wait they were creating their own dragons??? For real? Kyroh' shoulders sunk just a little bit. If everyone could create dragons then him having his own dragon wouldn't be special at all. Then he wouldn't be special at all. Thinking about it made him sort of sad.

Sort of really sad.

And he really shouldn't have been.

After all it was a lesson about DRAGONS.

Talking Post 1 and a question for Bellaire ^_^
~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Adi jotted down the necessary notes in his but he did have one nagging question. "Professor Bellaire,'' he began directing his attention to the Transfiguartion lady since she would have more knowledge on the spell, his hand raised. "Does this spell work on humans too?" He hoped so but if not, that didn't matter. He could always transfigure Benny bit by bit until he was a total dragon.

The Hufflepuff was impressed as he watched the dragon Bellaire had transfigured. Too bad he didn't have that level of skill to transfigure stuff so fast. Not yet anyway. Anyway, he should practice first.

"Draconifors... Draconifors... Draconifors...'' And the wand movement- a slash from left to right. Not too hard.

Right! Time to get started!

Dem Carters | even 🕊🕊 have pride | | Expecto PAWtronum 🐈 | U-NA-GI

Er.........what? Dragon creating spell? For reals? Whatever for?

Not that Heather objected to having her own dragon, even if it was temporary or not real or whatever. Just that, well, really? And she still thought that, for all of Professor Bellaire's insistence on respect, she could use a lesson in it herself. But that was beside the point. The point being dragons. Which would explain the cages.

Now, what dragon did she want? Something local, from Greece or nearby. Problem was, she didn't know what that would be. And she didn't have her Care of Magical Creatures book with her. Or since they were creating them, could it look anyway they wanted? "Does the dragon have to be a breed? Or can it be, like, purple with pink polka dots?" Important question.

Penelope was still looking at Kyroh when she heard the professor speak. Turning to look at the professors, she listened to what Professor Bellaire said. They were going to be creating dragons from stones? Kyroh was going to like this. Penelope watched as Professor Bellaire demonstrated the spell. It looked like they were not big or dangerous dragons, so that was good.

SPOILER!!: Kyroh

Penelope looked over at Kyroh and was surprised to see that he didn't look very happy. This was a lesson about DRAGONS. Kyroh should be excited about dragons. Why did he look so sad? They were creating dragons! DRAGONS!

Penelope went to get two rocks from the box and came back to Kyroh's desk, placing one of the rocks on the desk in front of him. He looked really sad. "What's wrong Kyroh? Don't you want to create a dragon?" Why was he sad? He shouldn't be sad.

Alright class had begun. So it was Quigly who was asking the questions. He was spacing out a little bit but he heard why were dragons dangerous? Hmm well he heard the other's answers and thought they were legit. I mean one dragons can burn you and two they could not be tamed and give you infections like Ron Weasley had back in the day. It could also burn your house down if they don't get enough space. He began to write down answers and he heard the professor move on. Sooo they were gonna learn about the Dragon Creation Spell? Hmm count him in! He was smirking and liking this lesson already.

SPOILER!!: Notes

Kace Lecium
Sixth Year
Hufflepuff

Dragons:
  • Horrible Pets
  • Should not be domesticating beasts
  • Independent Creatures
  • Thrive best when they are free
  • May cause harm when you own a dragon



He was listening to Quigly explain and then he turned his attention back to Professor Bellaire. He saw her use the spell and created the Hungarian Horntail Dragon. His eyes went wide. Blooddyy Hellll THAT was amazing. He wished he could pet it. He had NO idea which dragon he was gonna do. He kept brainstorming ideas. He began to scribble even more about the spell and wand movement.

SPOILER!!: More Notes

Dragon Creation Spell
Incantation: Draconifors
Wand movement: slashing movement at the target (left to right)



He grinned and now it was time to practice saying the incantation. He began to mumble to himself...

"Draconifors.....Draconifors.....Draconifors....Dr aconifors....Draconifors....Draconifors....Draconi fors.....Draconifors.....Draconifors.....Draconifo rs......Draconifors....Draconifors.....Draconifors ......Draconifors." Once he was comfortable with that he moved onto the wand movement.
