Default Muggle Studies Lesson 1: A Lesson on Sabotage



As you make your way into the Muggle Studies classroom, you will notice that the desks are set up in a series of rows. It was unlike Finneas to keep things so uniform, but maybe you’ve grown used to it this year. Along with the new curriculum, this seating arrangement has become a recent standard in his classroom.

At the front of the room is Schmoe’s desk, on top of which sits a closed cardboard box. Next to the desk stands your professor. No gadgets. No gizmos. Just a lanky, noodle-man twitching and sweating profusely. He looks exhausted and every now-and-again you might notice him quivering as takes a breath. He offers you a faint smile that doesn’t quite reach his eyes and hopes that you make quick work of finding a seat.


OOC: HENLO AND WELCOME! While this is our first class together OOC, it would not be your character's first class with Schmoe this year! Please be sure to take a look at the classroom rules (they have changed a bit) and I’ll post in about 24-28 hours to officially start the lesson. Class has officially STARTED! Please post as if your character has been here the whole time, otherwise there will be IC consequences.
IMPORTANT NOTE - please read: As I'm sure you're well aware by now, Muggle Studies is going to look a little different this year. As this will not be our first lesson IC (though it is our first one ooc), I just wanted to let y'all know what class would have looked like up until now.

Kids will know that the curriculum is different this year and there are overt anti-muggle sentiments & anti-muggle rhetoric within lessons. Furthermore, the Inquisitorial Squad is present in every lesson in order to ensure that (a) students and (b) Schmoe are behaving according to Neo-Alliance standards. We've all seen what has happened when students try to defy, so keep that in mind. During the lessons themselves, Schmoe appears to be very uncomfortable (more than usual) and incredibly frail/weak. Students should be able to pick up on the fact that he's scared (unless they are oblivious™), but he is complying and teaching the lessons regardless. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to nudge me via PM and I can try to answer as best I can within reason. xx
Lesson Progress:
+ Greetings + Question 1: Why are Wizards Better than Muggles?
+ Responses to Q1 + Question 2: Give an example of something muggles need tools or machinery for, but for which wizards have a magic alternative? Why is the magical way better?
+ Responses of Q2 + Introduction of Mini-Activity: Sabotage muggle objects
+ Main Activity: Build your own sabotage chamber

Ash was the image of a calm, cool, collected, and compliant happy child. Now was not the time to push it. Now was never the time to push it. Especially since she'd prefer to be alive.

With Ashley's arrival, Finneas tried to straighten his perpetually slouched back. "Good day, Ms. Fox," he tipped his head, hoping that his eyes conveyed the apology he wished he could voice out loud. His heart hurt even more for his muggle born students. She deserved better. They all did.

Instead, here she was trudging slowly into the lesson, prepared to deal with The Hoods and her anxiety. Schmoe was having it worse though. Claudine couldn’t blame him. The curriculum this year had drastically changed which she knew had been done forcefully.

“Hi, professor,’’ the fifth year said very quietly as she neared him. Smiling wasn’t always her thing but she did give the man what she hoped was an encouraging one before heading to a back row to select a seat.

Finneas twitched just as Claudine made her way inside. He returned her small smile with the best one he could manage, hoping not to show how exhausted he felt. "Hello, Claudine."

Time to go get trashed on for about an hour straight. But what was new, right?

He walked into the class glumly, finding a seat towards the back. "Hello, Professor Schmoe." Quinn knew that none of this was his fault—in fact, he could very easily tell that his Head of House was not comfortable teaching this material at all, which made it at least a little less horrid—but it was still pretty bad.

Quinn pulled out two pieces of paper, but not for taking notes. Atlas had shown him how to fold one of those origami ladybugs (apparently the first of an entire menagerie) and Quinn was trying his best to perfect it. He pulled out the red one Atlas had given him and set it on the desk, then pulled out his own piece of paper and did his best to replicate it using the steps Atlas taught him.

"Hello, Student Kingsley," Finneas tried returning the young boy's greeting with a goofy one of his own. It didn't quite come with the same enthusiasm behind his usual jokes, but Finneas was trying his best. It was difficult to find light in such dark times.

SPOILER!!: James

She wanted to give him a big hug, but since that was unlikely to get them any favor with the goon squad, she settled for an encouraging smile.

Maybe she'd slip some cookies on his desk after class.

"Good day to you, Professor. The sun is out today. Have you had a chance to see it?"

Finneas felt a special sort of connection to the class of fifth years he taught. Their first year was his first year of teaching. It made it that much more difficult to stand here during these lessons and go along with the curriculum. Nevertheless, he appreciated Phoebe's constant search for light. "Good day, Ms. James. I have not, but errr.... Perhaps I will t-take a walk after class."

“Hello Professor”, Cam said, trying to appear upbeat. Even she wasn’t that good an actress though. She went to her seat, sat down and got ready for an unpleasant time where she would be forced to say things that she really didn’t mean. Hopefully everyone except the hooded guys would realize that.

Finneas leaned over to rest a hand on the desk beside him for extra support. He offered the best smile he could to the next student, welcoming her inside. "H-hullo, Ms. Quincy."

SPOILER!!: Upstead

Whatever.

Muggle Studies had been a class Nem had taken purely for Schmoe reasons. Things had changed, of course, but these days they were more interested in seeing the new approach to the subject matter. So, even with the new management and how they may view a student who had opted to take Muggle Studies, Nem felt pretty comfortable in continuing their attendance. The main difference was that now they were taking no risks in appearing to buddy up to Schmoe, but surely he'd reach a conclusion that it was as much about their own self-preservation as his changed curriculum clearly was for his.

So, after lunch, when it was time for Muggle Studies, Nem strolled nonchalantly into the classroom and claimed the first seat that caught their eye, greeting the professor with a regular old, "Afternoon, Professor Schmoe." Who was to say if it was any more or less unnerving than usual.

Even with all the new company this year, Nemesis Upstead still made Finneas Schmoe very nervous. "Good afternoon." Who was to say if it was any more or less cautious that usual.

The new backwards lessons had given the Hufflepuff stress as well. He hated that he had play pretend and agree with the Anti-Muggle sentiments just because he feared for his life as a Muggleborn. He hated how he had to sit there and accept the negativity and he hated that it was slowly getting in to his head that maybe his family was trash...

While he had been in fear for The Hoods in other classes he felt absolute hatred for them in this one. And a mixture of fear and anger was not healthy. Each class, it took all of his willpower not to grab his textbook and give it a - WHACK- to the back of their heads. Those were just fantasies though, which was why he was still around.

"Hello Professor" he greeted him the moment he had entered the class. He wanted to say some encouraging words but he couldn't think of any. He found an empty seat and vowed to himself to not let today's lesson to go to his head. He had to stay strong!

Finneas fidgeted with his shirt as Minjae stepped into the classroom. "Hullo, Mr. Yoon," he greeted the Hufflepuff almost apologetically. Finneas liked this no more than Minjae did. That much was very clear.

Finneas did not like this term at all either, but he did give Austin a small smile regardless. They had to hold onto hope, even though hope felt very far gone. "Good afternoon."

She might have never known how nefarious certain people could be. And if she were going to become a Dark wizard catcher one day, she'd surely need to know how to think like one, right? Right.

So, ultimately, Bernie was still here, though much subdued, and frowning much more than she normally would have as she entered Schmoe's classroom. "Hi, Professor," she greeted him as levelley as possible, with a very small nod of resignation. Bernie picked out a seat that had a view of the window and sat down, resting her chin on her hand and trying not to think too much of better days and lessons in this room.

Remember when she'd been hit upside the head by a book? Good times.

Ms. Grantham broke his heart most of all. "Hello, Bernadette," he greeted her in the same subdued manner in which she greeted him. He had already apologized to her one on one, but he wished he could do so now as well.

SPOILER!!: Flamsteed, Aries

And herbology - but that was because he simply had to, since family was supposed to be really important and all.

But back to the matter in hand, muggle studies was the worst of it all - and he hated being in this school. Not because of the teacher or the subject itself but because of ~the others~ hovering about.

It was all just abysmal; a word he had only learned the night before because Atlas was mumbling it in his sleep. But alas, he was here - dragging his feet to one of the desks. "Hello Professor, you look like you haven't been sleeping much"

The comment from the young Gryffindor made the corners of Schmoe's mouth twitch. If one were paying enough attention, maybe they would have even caught sight of a smile. Maybe. "H-hullo, Mr. Flamsteed. An, er, astute observation. I hope, er, I hope you have been getting more sleep than I have."

SPOILER!!: Donovan

It made her sad to think about what she might have been learning about before all of this.

All of those thoughts were pushed from her mind however, the second she stepped through the classroom door. The set-up was still very much the same. Nothing had changed. Well.. nothing expect for the fact that Professor Schmoe looked even more rundown and defeated than the last lesson with him.

"Good afternoon, Professor Schmoe," Lia gave a small but what she hoped was a warm smile. She found herself an empty seat and sat down, quietly taking out her things and laying them on her desk.

"Hullo, Ms. Donovan," he gave the first year the best smile he could manage. Her family was a good bunch. Finneas didn't like feeling as though he were letting them down.

She supposed the inner eye was not knowing, or there was a big reason why Ziggy had been left in the dark about this.

"Professor," Aboli said gently before taking a seat next to Minjae. She knew he was muggleborn and that this class was probably difficult for all of them to stomach right now. Ugh.

UGH.

Her stomach churned as she settled. Professor Schmoe looked horrible, as usual, and Aboli wished there was something she or others could do for him. Alas, he was involved in the wrong subject matter. His only crime, really.

The closer and closer they came to the start of the lesson, the worse Finneas felt. It happened every time, of course, but they would get through it all the same. "Hullo, Ms. Song," he managed, hoping that he could convey some sort of hidden apology with his eyes.

SPOILER!!: Summers

She could come and sit through all the horrible muggle remarks and try and be strong for him, 'cause he sure looked like he needed it.

"Hello Professor," She greeted softly, offering the guy a fleeting smile as she moved past to take her seat. She wondered what kind of awful they'd be learning about today.

Though Finneas had never been good at picking up on the feelings of others, he could tell that Ms. Summers was having an especially difficult time this year. It hurt his heart that he could not do anything to make it better and deep down, he knew his lessons were likely making it worse. It was difficult to carry on like this. It really was. "H-hullo, Cecelia," he offered her a fleeting smile in return.

He wasn't the kind of quirky always making you do the odd muggle activity kind of guy anymore. Granted, Charlie was fairly certain she didn't want any part of anything that had to do with muggles these days. She hadn't even been interested in making clothes these days. It didn't seem worth it at all.

Tucking a curl behind her ear she walked over and took a seat behind CeCe hoping that maybe this wouldn't be such a painful class. "Professor." She nodded and gave a faint smile to the man.

Unfortunately for them both, today's lesson would be just as painful as any other one they have had together this term. "Hullo," he offered in greeting.

So it was the least she could do to show up with everyone else and support him, even if it wasn't much.

"Hi, Professor," she said, offering him a small smile before continuing on to quickly claim an empty seat.

"Hullo," he offered Ivy a small smile that did not quite reach his eyes. His students were trying their best and so would he... No matter how uncomfortable this lesson would be for all involved.

"Hello, Professor Schmoe," the first year greeted the man when she saw him. She offered him a smile since he looked so gloomy once again. The little girl was curious about what was going on with the noodle of a man, but not enough to ask out loud. She assumed it was because of the Neo-Alliance stuff going on ... but, well, he still had a job, right? That was something to be happy about, right?

She tried not to think too much about it. After all, the professor was an adult and could take care of himself. She was just a girl. All she was here to do was to learn, which was why the Slytherin quietly took the seat next to Dahlia and waited for the lesson to begin.

"Hullo," he offered the first year in greeting, bobbing his head. He wished he could fidget with a yo-yo, but instead he settled for the hem of his robes.

She hadn't spent much time in there, but she KNEW it meant a lot to poor Schmoe-y. How he was standing there acting like his sky wasn't falling was beyond her. She'd have laid down and given up right away.

The fact the squad ALWAYS came to this class also made it now one of her least favourites. There was never a reprieve.

"Hello Professor. You're looking just a little less tense than usual. I think Professor Smiles would consider that a...a good omen."

But the hooded bullies kinda...er...they were definitely a BAD one. Did that cancel things out? Were they gonna have a neutral lesson???

There weren't a lot of things that made Finneas smile this term, but Emmerson Cambridge always had a comment or two that could do just that. Even a fleeting smile was a smile all the same. "Errrrr... Thank you, Ms. Cambridge?" He wasn't sure this was a compliment.

And he knew Schmoe was having a rough go of it, too. Cuz like the whole Alliance or whatever was trying to argue that muggles were uselessly. And Schmoe’s whole, like, job or whatever was to advocate for Muggle history and value.

So when he walked into Muggle Studies he smiled at the shaky-looking Professor. “Heya Professor.” And quietly went to his seat.

Finneas was continuing with this backward curriculum, in part, because he did not want his students to suffer the same fate he had. When news of that first DADA class had made its way around the castle, Finneas' heart nearly stopped.

And though he could not manage a proper smile, he did try a little harder for Kale. "Hello, Mr. Trent."

Although he found Professor Schmoe’s teaching methods a bit… weird at times, he had genuinely enjoyed his lessons up until this term because it was clear that Schmoe cared about the subject. Now the class was just a bitter reminder of a world he couldn’t go back to. With every lesson, the anger at Rosier’s brand of bigotry, the fear that that bigotry would one day be directed at him as a halfblood, the self-doubt that maybe his background really did make him inferior, grew. He felt like a blaster about to go off at any moment!

Trying to push through thoughts out of his mind, he trudged into the classroom to find Professor Schmoe at the front of the room. The man looked every bit as terrible as Heath felt! His heart went out to him. Whatever he felt about the new curriculum, he didn’t blame Professor Schmoe for it. “Good afternoon, Professor Schmoe,” he greeted with a polite nod and the faintest hint of a smile. It would have been more, but he worried that if he smiled too much or looked at the professor too sympathetically, he’d be hexed by the hooded goons who he expected to make an appearance any time.

As usual, he beelined for the back of the room. Familiar habits and familiar people were a source of comfort now that his world had gone completely mad. He almost took a seat beside Claudine but stopped himself just in time, taking the one that neighbored her diagonally (one row ahead and one seat to the right). Close enough to feel normal but hopefully not close enough to draw any hoods’ attention. He only dared risk a polite nod in greeting as he sat down, neatly arranging his supplies in font of him.

Finneas hurt for students like Heathcliffe who had always shown such care for the subject. The guilt was unbearable. "H-hullo, Mr. Jones. Good afternoon." His smile faded immediately as the Ravenclaw turned to find a seat.

But maybe she could catch a glimpse of their wands. She still couldn't identify wand woods, especially from a distance, but color... she could maybe figure out color? That would get her further into her calculations than she currently was.

Once that was done... the next step was... everything else. She was feeling like the Professor was looking, but thinking about things made the day to day updated curriculum bearable.

She glanced at the Professor again. Maybe she should make him a cake or something? That would also be a nice distraction.

Finneas twitched uncomfortably as more students trickled in. "Good afternoon, Valencia," he tried his best to give her a small smile as she made her way for a desk.

Schmoe didn’t look well at all. ”Are you ill, professor?” He was getting quite concerned for the health and wellbeing of the muggle studies professor. Devin took a seat and anxiously waited to see what anti-muggle rhetoric would be forced upon them today. He hated what they were being taught about muggles this year. It was just wrong.

Finneas leaned over against the board, feeling exhausted and needing to sit down. With the arrival of the next student, however, he tried his best to straighten up. "Hullo," he stopped short with a twitch. "Errr... I err... I do not believe so." He scratched his head. He did feel ill.

She walked in and side-eyed the professor. He didn't look any happier about class than Delilah did. He actually looked pretty miserable. Deciding to keep it short and to the point, the first year gave him a simple, "Hello, Professor." She took a seat in a desk right in the middle. She figured the hooded people would either take the very front or the very back, so the middle seemed safe.

And Finneas, too, would be lying if he said he wasn't dreading teaching this class. He loved his job, he really did. He loved his students, he really did. But he did not love what it had all devolved to. "Hello." It was difficult to keep hope.

The whole thing made him sick to his stomach and was why Atlas had skipped over eating entirely. Any day there was a Muggle Studies lesson was a day he struggled to eat. And drink, for that matter, which helped maintain an empty bladder since THEY were always present as well.

Quickly shuffling to find himself a seat besides fellow first year Delilah, he did what he did best these days....and kept his head down. Maybe a middle seat would be safer than somewhere around the perimeter where The Hoods™ walked around with more ease.

Finneas silently understood why Atlas silently made his way to a seat without stopping to say hello. Though it did make Finneas feel some miserable way (as most things these days seemed to do), he did not draw any attention to the boy and watched quietly from by his desk as one of the Mr. Flamsteed[s] made his way to a seat.

Finneas did his best to pay the hooded figures no mind. Their presence made him uncomfortable and he was silently thankful for the industrial strength deodorant he had reapplied just after lunch. Even with the warning that the Inquisitorial Squad would be present for each of his lessons, Finneas couldn't help but feel uneasy each and every time. Unfortunately however, the Schmoe must go on if they all wanted to make it out of the lesson alive.

Errrrrrrrr... Anyway, AnYwAy, ANYWAY.


He checked his watch one last time before hobbling over to close the door and then returning back to center stage classroom. It took him a little longer than it ought to take someone to do such tasks, but he was managing the best he could.

"Errr.... Good afternoon everyone," he paused, looking around the room and blinked profusely (as one does). "I, er, let's begin with some review..." He hesitated before continuing on, "Why are wizards better than muggles? And, er, please think critically." In other words, a simple 'magic' would not be enough. The Inquisitorial Squad had sickening standards. And once again, he was feeling quite ill.

OOC: Hi, friends ^^ Thanks for joining us, super stoked to have y'all here <3 Class has officially STARTED! We'll be moving to the next question in approximately 22-24 Hours! The question is: Why are wizards better than muggles?

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

"Wizards help people, and muggles just hurt people. Wizards have all these cool spells and stuff that they use to make everybody's life easier, and all muggles do is run around making weapons of mass destruction to fight each other. That makes wizards smarter, because we don't want to hurt other wizards unless it's justified, like if they support muggles." Well, that was an impressive answer for Ash. It was absolutely untrue garbage, but that was how it was supposed to be. She even said it convincingly, in an effort to avoid punishment. Now is not the time to die. Now is never the time to die. Shut up and don't die. Etc. She was absolutely using every bit of strength she had to stop herself from cursing the cultists. Cursing them magically... and just in terms of foul language. But on the outside, she was a picture of utter calm. And on the inside, she was hoping that Lucien Rosier would die a horrible and disgraceful death.

Bernie tried not to wince as she watched her dear darling Schmoe (nothing romantic here, lads, he was like a pet knarl to her) hobble across the classroom. Curse those stupid hooded figures! If she had her way, they would rue the day they came in and ruined her magic school and made even her formerly easy classes (like this one) terrible and difficult! The hand her chin was resting on slowly curled into a fist, but Bernie did her best to unclench her jaw and think of a smart, very smart, answer for Schmoe.

It was her duty now to just keep pretending she hated people like herself. They'd talked about this, they had. Per usual, her hand was one of the first in the air, though it was definitely lacking her usual enthusiasm. Just a straight-up hand, no bobbing, no oohing and aaahing.

"Muggles are easily misled," she answered through gritted teeth when it was her turn. "For example, they believe the lies the Ministry's office of misinformation feeds them because we're forced to hide our magical creatures."

Bernie tried to phrase this as though it were the fault of the Ministry and their Statute of Secrecy, not the Muggles though. She knew Schmoe would know. Trust. He wouldn't think any worse of her, right?

Quinn really would rather not answer this question. But... the hooded people were watching the entire class. He figured not answering this question right now would be just about as bad as not answering in DADA. And not answering in DADA was bad.

"Uh, well, Muggles... destroy the planet. Because they don't have magic, they have to find other ways to sustain their lifestyles, and most of that directly leads to immense pollution. Landfills, nuclear waste, plastic in the ocean, et cetera." Quinn thought that was a good answer because it was true with or without a grudge against Muggles.

Heath sat up a little straighter, looking to the front as Professor Schmoe started the lesson. As mind-bogglingly backwards as this class had become, he was still determined to do well in it. Not because he actually believed this nonsense, but because it would make his life, his classmates' lives, and most importantly, Professor Schmoe's life easier. There was no way he was going to make more trouble for him!

Unfortunately that didn't make answering the question any easier. Everything in him screamed how illogical it was to paint one group of people as superior to another. His mind just didn't work that way! He had to approach the question from a historical or a scientific angle, otherwise he could never bring himself to answer it. After recalling something he'd read, he raised his hand and said, "Wizards are more resilient than muggles. We've found ways to adapt and survuve their subjugation throughout history, such as wizards using flame freezing spells to survive the witch burnings, and we've found ways to adapt our society so that it stays hidden from prying muggle eyes." Did he believe that? Not exactly, but at least there was some factual element to it.

Sometimes, when he was trying to be optimistic, Atlas liked to think about The Hoods™ were not actually people but empty robes enchanted to behave like people. It was almost a more terrifying thought at times but other times it made him feel a little better. It was a complicated sort of thought process...but right now he was just trying not to look at them at all. All eyes on the parchment on his desk and no where else.

Professor Schmoe's voice made his insides twist horribly and the blonde wished that he was sitting next to his brother. But that would have meant that he would have had to pause and give the classroom a more thorough look over and that was one of the last things he felt like doing. He could feel the strain in the man's voice and even feel it in his skin and it all made the Gryffindor even more uneasy about answering. But...would this be a lesson were silence was punished? Professor Schmoe had not said they all had to answer like Rosier often demanded, so this little Flamsteed would keep quiet. Though his answer, once again based on facts, would have been building upon others - namely that historically speaking and according to wizarding history books it was muggles who had waged the war against wizardingkind.

Atlas did, however, flinch when he heard the older Ravenclaw boy's answer...where he portrayed the concealment of magical society as something worthy of praise. Not that the Gryffindor did not agree with it...but because he was afraid about how they would respond to it.

In a nut shell, the first year was once again too gripped by fear to speak. A common occurrence when it came to Muggle Studies.

However small and forced Professor Schmoe's smile might have been, Dahlia had noticed and just him attempting that little gesture was special. Wiggling her bum a tiny bit on the chair, she sat herself up even straighter. This little Ravenclaw was focused and ready. Hopefully.

The presence of the Hooded Minions anywhere made her jumpy. Them being around during lessons made her feel sick. One might think that she could get used to it but that wasn't the case. It was difficult to get used to something when you could never be sure of what the outcome might be.

Hearing the very first question of the lesson didn't take her by surprise anymore. Every lesson so far this year had been about the same thing in some form. How were wizards superior to muggles. It was getting really old, really fast but her lips remained sealed on that matter.

Dahlia raised her hand giving the very first thing that had popped into her head. "Muggles destroy lots of land and tear down forests to build homes and shops which take up lots of space. Witches and Wizards don't need much space at all for our homes or shops because we can use expansion charms and disillusion to make more room for ourselves and hide what we do have." It wasn't a reply she really liked at all but it was something nonetheless.

Kale was feeling the urge to throw shoes again. Schmoe was technically speaking but he could hear the Rosier’s voice in every word. He hated that meat sack of garbage, Rosier.

SCHMOE MAN, KALE DIDN’T WANT TO THROW A SHOE AT YOU BUT LIKE YOU WERE MAKING IT HARD. And the worst part was like the fifth year couldn’t even blame Schmoe for muggle bashing. He and his peers had been doing it all term to stay safe.

His face twisted angrily as his peers started to say hateful crud about muggles. He wanted to, like, shout loud. Take a stand. Do something that was more than being an aggressive bystander.

The fifth year said, “They created technology that makes candles obsolete. Gah. Darn Muggles thinking they’re better than us and candles!”

Devin looked around nervously at the ominous hooded figures who had come to be a fixture of every lesson. He knew they were just waiting for the moment when he would say something positive about muggles that went against their teachings. Then they would hurt him, maybe even kill him. He was lucky that his parents were both magical, but that wouldn’t save him if he openly resisted.

Yup, that question was exactly what he had come to expect from this class. It was terrible. Not just because these teachings were clearly morally wrong, but because the more he heard this anti-muggle rhetoric, the more his malleable young mind started to wonder if the things his parents had taught him about respect were wrong and if this was the truth. Devin listened closely to everything his classmates were saying. Ash’s comment about muggles hurting each other did not go unnoticed. ”What’s wrong with muggles? Greed. Behaving as if they’re the only ones who matter. Selfishly hoarding wealth while lots of other muggles are extremely poor, and not helping them. Choosing to put their own self interests ahead of helping others even though they can afford to do so.” That didn’t apply to every single muggle though, and he was sure there were wizards it could apply to as well. Sure, he believed people shouldn’t be so greedy, but he didn’t believe it as a blanket statement about all muggles.

Blake was sicken by this. Muggle studies ... under new management appeared to be just about muggle hating. This school year sucked. Blake was so hoping that is 5th year was going to be epic, and after ever single lesson of the term he hated it more and more. Blake wanted to go home, but what was he to do? He had to remain at school, and he was much to much of coward to rock the boat .. at least for now.

"Well we have less environmental impact on the earth than muggles. Since we can use magic for transportation and such, so we help keep the environment more friendly. We had lesson about that last term I believe." .. or maybe it was two years ago already, Blake couldn't remember.

Stupid Hoods.

Claudine shot them a glare before lowering her eyes to her notebook and pen. She Just wished the lesson would get started so that it would be done with quickly. A huge wave of dread was piling up in her, knowing the lies she’d have to tell due to The Hood’s presence. At this point in life, everyone entering the room was ignored. Not until Schmoe got things started did she raise her head again.

Oh joy.

What a question to start off with.

The Snakette wished that she could skip providing an answer but knew that The Hoods would highly frown upon that. Hand up, she waited on her turn. “Because a lot of Muggle professions are trash. For example, their doctors literally cut patients to fix them whereas wizards can use their magical abilities to fix patients without having to do any of that.”

Claudine hadn't had experiences with doctors and didn’t ever want to. In a way, she didn’t think much of doctors.

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

It was a smile, small as it was it was still a smile and that was about the only thing Emmerson would likely accomplish before this lesson ended. Mind you, she didn't particularly like muggles and didn't really care if she spoke badly of them or not. Truthfully, it made no difference to her.

....But the effect it was having on her friends and some of her professor..... That just made her uneasy.

The Gryffindor listened keenly to the question, no longer thrown when this line of questioning came up. Another day, another muggle bashing session huh? She had this, for the most part.

"Muggles are VERY limited in the kinds of stunts they can perform during recitals and competitions. It also matters more if they get hurt. It's very limiting if they want real performing careers and usually means their stuff is less entertaining."

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

Minjae had seen Austin’s little wave and he would have liked to wave back but the presence of The Hoods entering the classroom and securing their places near the windows made him unable to do so. What if they thought that waving was ‘too muggle like’ ? He honestly did not know with the Alliance anymore.

When Aboli took a seat next to him, Minjae gave her no attention. His gaze was fixed on The Hoods. A mantra of ‘’don’t be stupid. don’t be stupid. don’t be stupid” was going through his head because he knew the consequences if he lost his temper now. Especially in this class.

He quickly looked back down at his desk when he thought that one of the Hoods was looking in his direction (he couldn't exactly see the faces of those cowards) before he looked at the Professor when he started his lesson.

OBVIOUSLY, the most superior kind were the muggleborns. Simply because they had knowledge on both sides. Of course, he couldn’t exactly say that with THEM around. His attention went to Devin next. The word 'wealth' had caught his attention and as the boy spoke, Minjae felt as if it was directed to his own family. He almost stood up. Remembered The Hoods and took a calming breath. He knew the Gryffindor HAD to say this. He probably didn't mean it either. He hoped that was the reason and it weren't his real thoughts.

He had to answer something right? UGH.

"Most muggles are lazy and would rather live in their parents basements playing video games than go out there and do something productive. Wizards on the other hand are more active and work far harder to achieve their goals, i don't know"

COULD HE THROW HIS BOOK NOW?!

Even though most of the fun had been taken out of Muggle Studies, mostly due to the presence of Rent-a-Snitch, there was some improvement in that Schmoe was a little less of a human disaster throughout the lesson. It was entertaining to watch in small doses, but infuriating to answer to one, and be stuck with one as a teacher.

So things were much simpler now. Simple enough question. Simple enough answer. Nem raised their hand, gave their answer. "Aside from the obvious-" The danger, duh. "We do more, notice more, know more, understand more. We even live longer. We are more, despite being numbered less." Simple.

The problem was that 'simple' was the fastest track to death by boredom, speaking of lifespans.

Phoebe had her chin propped on her fists and she was eyeing the desktop with a fixed interest. She sort of hated how everyone had to make up ridiculous answers just to placate the goon squad, especially since Schmoe seemed to be sinking further and further into despair every class.

Without lifting her head, Phoebe wiggled the fingers of one hand, essentially raising her hand to answer. Without raising her hand. "I think we're avoiding the obvious answer that wizards are better because we don't go around punishing people for being different and forcing them to live a life of secrecy."

What kind of beginning of class was this? How was THAT a start?! It was the worst possible start ever?! AND Minjae ignored he?! SO RUDE. She scowled at him juuuust a little "Hi to you, too," she whispered before raising her hand rather unenthusiastically.

"Wizards can fly. Like, without planes. That's pretty cool," she shrugged. Nothing more or less to add. Planes were cool, too. Aboli rather liked them on the off chance they got to ride in one. It took SOOOOO long and was less convenient and MORE EXPENSIVE but still. IT was an *EXPERIENCE*.

She knew it was coming - every lesson was like this now - but it still wasn't enjoyable to hear Professor Schmoe ask that question, or watch how uncomfortable it made him. How uncomfortable it made most everyone, including herself.

But...Ivy had to answer with something. Listening to some of the other answers, she tried to come up with her own response...and finally raised her hand.

"Muggles are...selfish, like others have said. They only care about what's useful for themselves, not anyone else, and a lot of creatures have been made extinct or nearly extinct because of their actions in the past. It's because of wizards that we still have a lot of the magical creatures around today. We've saved them and protected them." There were some half-truths in there, at least...even if they were wrapped up in a lot of awfulness, which in turn made her feel awful.

Delilah gave Schmoe a subtle yet sad look. She had heard such great things about him, and now it seemed like the Hooded Creeps had sucked literally all the joy out of him. Speaking of the Hooded Creeps, at least they'd done exactly what she'd seem them do before--take their positions away from the middle of the classroom. She'd make a not of that for every lesson for the rest of the year.

Why were...wizards better than muggles? Delilah didn't feel right answering that question at all. Her mother was no doubt a witch, and it was a possibility, but not anything definite, that her father was a wizard. Even still, the orphanage she was currently growing up in was a muggle orphanage. There were so many wonderful people there, and she's just started learning about the magical world.

She looked at Schmoe and very gently shook her head. She couldn't do it. But she had to. She looked over at Atlas, who was possibly feeling the same way. Delilah tried raising her hand. "Because...because...," was all she should say. "We're able to do things quickly with our magic, and it takes them forever to do even the tiniest of tasks."

She felt awful.

"Witches and Wizards have a longer life span and a much higher survival rate. Opposed to our muggle counterparts, whom aren't advanced in just about anything as our magical culture is." Plain and simple.

No shade but it was kinda true. Everything a muggle can do, a wizard can do better since magic was the key source of advancement to be on top of the food chain.

It was absolutely untrue garbage, but that was how it was supposed to be. She even said it convincingly, in an effort to avoid punishment. Now is not the time to die. Now is never the time to die. Shut up and don't die. Etc. She was absolutely using every bit of strength she had to stop herself from cursing the cultists. Cursing them magically... and just in terms of foul language. But on the outside, she was a picture of utter calm. And on the inside, she was hoping that Lucien Rosier would die a horrible and disgraceful death.

This lesson was already taking a toll on the noodle-man. He listened quietly as the Ravenclaw offered up an answer, a little bit of his soul dying on the inside all the while. "Yes, er, you bring up a number of good points.... The one about spells, er, keep that in mind." Because they'd touch on it in just a moment.

Bernie tried to phrase this as though it were the fault of the Ministry and their Statute of Secrecy, not the Muggles though. She knew Schmoe would know. Trust. He wouldn't think any worse of her, right?

Finneas usually loved their lessons together, but he was already exhausted. Still, he moved to call on Bernadette, hoping she would not say anything too worrisome. One could never tell with her. "Errr excellent, yes," he bobbed his head slowly though he did spare a glance over at the corner of the room. Her wording was a little... Y'know. "Easily deceived..."

Landfills, nuclear waste, plastic in the ocean, et cetera." Quinn thought that was a good answer because it was true with or without a grudge against Muggles.

This answer actually energized Schmoe a bit. Not much, just a smidge. "Er, very good, Mr. Kingsley." Though really, pollution wasn't just on muggles. They all shared the blame. He turned now to address the class. "Those of you who were here with us last year should recall our lesson on pollution. Err." Yeah. .__. He preferred the chaos of that lesson.

There was no way he was going to make more trouble for him!

Unfortunately that didn't make answering the question any easier. Everything in him screamed how illogical it was to paint one group of people as superior to another. His mind just didn't work that way! He had to approach the question from a historical or a scientific angle, otherwise he could never bring himself to answer it. After recalling something he'd read, he raised his hand and said, "Wizards are more resilient than muggles. We've found ways to adapt and survuve their subjugation throughout history, such as wizards using flame freezing spells to survive the witch burnings, and we've found ways to adapt our society so that it stays hidden from prying muggle eyes." Did he believe that? Not exactly, but at least there was some factual element to it.

Finneas was quick to jump in with a response here. "I believe what you are meaning to say, Mr. Jones, is that wizards are better fit for, er, survival." He nervously looked towards the two hooded figures in the corner Just in case.

It was a complicated sort of thought process...but right now he was just trying not to look at them at all. All eyes on the parchment on his desk and no where else.

Professor Schmoe's voice made his insides twist horribly and the blonde wished that he was sitting next to his brother. But that would have meant that he would have had to pause and give the classroom a more thorough look over and that was one of the last things he felt like doing. He could feel the strain in the man's voice and even feel it in his skin and it all made the Gryffindor even more uneasy about answering. But...would this be a lesson were silence was punished? Professor Schmoe had not said they all had to answer like Rosier often demanded, so this little Flamsteed would keep quiet. Though his answer, once again based on facts, would have been building upon others - namely that historically speaking and according to wizarding history books it was muggles who had waged the war against wizardingkind.

Atlas did, however, flinch when he heard the older Ravenclaw boy's answer...where he portrayed the concealment of magical society as something worthy of praise. Not that the Gryffindor did not agree with it...but because he was afraid about how they would respond to it.

In a nut shell, the first year was once again too gripped by fear to speak. A common occurrence when it came to Muggle Studies.

Finneas did worry about this one. Always so quiet. Always so scared. Some day, Finneas hoped he could find a way to make it up to the boy.

The presence of the Hooded Minions anywhere made her jumpy. Them being around during lessons made her feel sick. One might think that she could get used to it but that wasn't the case. It was difficult to get used to something when you could never be sure of what the outcome might be.

Hearing the very first question of the lesson didn't take her by surprise anymore. Every lesson so far this year had been about the same thing in some form. How were wizards superior to muggles. It was getting really old, really fast but her lips remained sealed on that matter.

Dahlia raised her hand giving the very first thing that had popped into her head. "Muggles destroy lots of land and tear down forests to build homes and shops which take up lots of space. Witches and Wizards don't need much space at all for our homes or shops because we can use expansion charms and disillusion to make more room for ourselves and hide what we do have." It wasn't a reply she really liked at all but it was something nonetheless.

His back ached and as such, he hobbled over to sit on his desk as he went to call on the next student with their hand up. "Very, er, very good. Their negative impact on the environment does not stop with pollution alone."

His face twisted angrily as his peers started to say hateful crud about muggles. He wanted to, like, shout loud. Take a stand. Do something that was more than being an aggressive bystander.

The fifth year said, “They created technology that makes candles obsolete. Gah. Darn Muggles thinking they’re better than us and candles!”

Finneas moved on to the next student, feeling a sad and tired sort of way. But this answer? This answer made the corners of his mouth twitch. Just a bit. "The candles, er, yes. It is a shame." Again his nervous gaze shifted towards the figures in the corner.

He was lucky that his parents were both magical, but that wouldn’t save him if he openly resisted.

Yup, that question was exactly what he had come to expect from this class. It was terrible. Not just because these teachings were clearly morally wrong, but because the more he heard this anti-muggle rhetoric, the more his malleable young mind started to wonder if the things his parents had taught him about respect were wrong and if this was the truth. Devin listened closely to everything his classmates were saying. Ash’s comment about muggles hurting each other did not go unnoticed. ”What’s wrong with muggles? Greed. Behaving as if they’re the only ones who matter. Selfishly hoarding wealth while lots of other muggles are extremely poor, and not helping them. Choosing to put their own self interests ahead of helping others even though they can afford to do so.” That didn’t apply to every single muggle though, and he was sure there were wizards it could apply to as well. Sure, he believed people shouldn’t be so greedy, but he didn’t believe it as a blanket statement about all muggles.

This answer made Finneas' heart hurt. All of the answers did, but this one was almost worse than the rest that he had heard so far. He hoped these children weren't believing in any of this. He really, truly hoped. "Mu-muggles are self--self interested, yes, this is a ... good point to remember." the words got caught on his tongue as if his vocal chords were trying to protest.

"Well we have less environmental impact on the earth than muggles. Since we can use magic for transportation and such, so we help keep the environment more friendly. We had lesson about that last term I believe." .. or maybe it was two years ago already, Blake couldn't remember.

Finneas was starting to feel light-headed, but he pushed himself to continue, calling on Blake next. "Yes, we did." At least the old lessons weren't entirely lost upon the students. Did Blake also remember what Finneas had said about pollution being a joint problem? That wizards also played their part? "Thank you for, er, thank you for reminding everyone."

Not until Schmoe got things started did she raise her head again.

Oh joy.

What a question to start off with.

The Snakette wished that she could skip providing an answer but knew that The Hoods would highly frown upon that. Hand up, she waited on her turn. “Because a lot of Muggle professions are trash. For example, their doctors literally cut patients to fix them whereas wizards can use their magical abilities to fix patients without having to do any of that.”

Claudine hadn't had experiences with doctors and didn’t ever want to. In a way, she didn’t think much of doctors.

Finneas winced in response to her wording. He didn't mean to, but he did. "That is an excellent point that you raise, Ms. Blaze." The world felt as if it were sinking."Our healers can do five times as much in less than half the time."

....But the effect it was having on her friends and some of her professor..... That just made her uneasy.

The Gryffindor listened keenly to the question, no longer thrown when this line of questioning came up. Another day, another muggle bashing session huh? She had this, for the most part.

"Muggles are VERY limited in the kinds of stunts they can perform during recitals and competitions. It also matters more if they get hurt. It's very limiting if they want real performing careers and usually means their stuff is less entertaining."

Finneas twitched involuntarily before calling upon Ms. Cambridge. He always found himself a little more nervous when her hand was raised. She was a little unpredictable, this one. "Very good. Even in the, er, creative fields, wizards excel." He tried to sound more enthusiastic than he felt as he said this.

When Aboli took a seat next to him, Minjae gave her no attention. His gaze was fixed on The Hoods. A mantra of ‘’don’t be stupid. don’t be stupid. don’t be stupid” was going through his head because he knew the consequences if he lost his temper now. Especially in this class.

He quickly looked back down at his desk when he thought that one of the Hoods was looking in his direction (he couldn't exactly see the faces of those cowards) before he looked at the Professor when he started his lesson.

OBVIOUSLY, the most superior kind were the muggleborns. Simply because they had knowledge on both sides. Of course, he couldn’t exactly say that with THEM around. His attention went to Devin next. The word 'wealth' had caught his attention and as the boy spoke, Minjae felt as if it was directed to his own family. He almost stood up. Remembered The Hoods and took a calming breath. He knew the Gryffindor HAD to say this. He probably didn't mean it either. He hoped that was the reason and it weren't his real thoughts.

He had to answer something right? UGH.

"Most muggles are lazy and would rather live in their parents basements playing video games than go out there and do something productive. Wizards on the other hand are more active and work far harder to achieve their goals, i don't know"

COULD HE THROW HIS BOOK NOW?!

Finneas knew this was more difficult for some of his students than it was for others. He worried for Minjae, he really did. "Errr.. This is very true. Wizardkind have ambition, while errr... While muggles do not." His heart felt heavy as he relayed his response without any real conviction.

So things were much simpler now. Simple enough question. Simple enough answer. Nem raised their hand, gave their answer. "Aside from the obvious-" The danger, duh. "We do more, notice more, know more, understand more. We even live longer. We are more, despite being numbered less." Simple.

The problem was that 'simple' was the fastest track to death by boredom, speaking of lifespans.

The stark contrast between Minjae and Nemsis was as clear as day. "........" Finneas paused for a moment to collect himself. "Yes. I, er, I could not have phrased it better myself." Ouch.

Without lifting her head, Phoebe wiggled the fingers of one hand, essentially raising her hand to answer. Without raising her hand. "I think we're avoiding the obvious answer that wizards are better because we don't go around punishing people for being different and forcing them to live a life of secrecy."

And sinking deeper into despair he was. "Mm. Muggles are .... they are hateful and intolerant," he replied with little conviction.

"Wizards can fly. Like, without planes. That's pretty cool," she shrugged. Nothing more or less to add. Planes were cool, too. Aboli rather liked them on the off chance they got to ride in one. It took SOOOOO long and was less convenient and MORE EXPENSIVE but still. IT was an *EXPERIENCE*.

Finneas felt like a deflated balloon. Likely looked like one too. "Yes, we have far surpassed muggles in err... in terms of innovation."

"Muggles are...selfish, like others have said. They only care about what's useful for themselves, not anyone else, and a lot of creatures have been made extinct or nearly extinct because of their actions in the past. It's because of wizards that we still have a lot of the magical creatures around today. We've saved them and protected them." There were some half-truths in there, at least...even if they were wrapped up in a lot of awfulness, which in turn made her feel awful.

Finneas stood up once again, squirming in discomfort and hoping that the Q&A session would come to a close as soon as possible. "You raise an excellent point, Ms. Grimm." Finneas nodded slowly. "They only know to destroy."

She'd make a not of that for every lesson for the rest of the year.

Why were...wizards better than muggles? Delilah didn't feel right answering that question at all. Her mother was no doubt a witch, and it was a possibility, but not anything definite, that her father was a wizard. Even still, the orphanage she was currently growing up in was a muggle orphanage. There were so many wonderful people there, and she's just started learning about the magical world.

She looked at Schmoe and very gently shook her head. She couldn't do it. But she had to. She looked over at Atlas, who was possibly feeling the same way. Delilah tried raising her hand. "Because...because...," was all she should say. "We're able to do things quickly with our magic, and it takes them forever to do even the tiniest of tasks."

She felt awful.

Finneas was feeling restless. The longer this discussion went, the more uncomfortable he felt. "Muggles waste time." Was all Finneas said to round this out. In his heart of hearts, he knew his students hated this as much as he did.

No shade but it was kinda true. Everything a muggle can do, a wizard can do better since magic was the key source of advancement to be on top of the food chain.

Finneas nodded slowly in reply to the Slytherin's answer. "Yes, er, muggles are lousy at survival. Likely due to their ... er... barbaric tendencies and lack of... er... lack of advancement." Finneas would likely be ill before class was over.


Finneas very slowly raised his arm in the air and flicked his wand towards the whiteboard behind him where notes slowly appeared, outlining all of the answers that were discussed. They had, er, they had come up with quite the list. It made his heart sink

It hurt schmoe much.

And despite feeling so uncomfortable, another glance over at the hooded figures in the corner was all the motivation Finneas needed in order to carry on with the rest of the lesson. "So, er, yes. We er, wizards are superior for an infinite number of reasons." He paused to swallow thickly. His mouth was running dry. "One, er, one p-point that was mentioned quite a number of times," he began. "Was er, well, muggles are useless because they, er, because they rely upon machines and tools. They lack advancement. They... waste their t-time with inability and expend their own, er, their own energy in order to get anything done.... And, er, wizards... Wizards can easily do ten times more than, er, than muggles can just with a simple flick of the wrist." He brandished his wand to puntate the point.

"I would like each of you to, er, to give me an example of something muggles need tools or machines for, but that... err.. That wizards can use magic for." He paused momentarily, bracing himself. "Why is the magical way better?" He slunk back to lean against his table.


OOC: hihi, you'll have 22-24 hours before we move on to the next portion of class. Question is: Give an example of something muggles need tools or machinery for, but for which wizards have a magic alternative? Why is the magical way better?

Cornelia was a sponge. Everything everyone was saying, everything that the professor was seemingly agreeing with, was filling up her mind. Of course she had gotten the vibe early on in the school year that Muggles were bad, but all of the different things that were said really made it crystal clear. It was times like these she was very glad to be magical.

"Muggles need to use a lot of different machines -- umm, I'm not sure what they're called exactly -- but they use them to make buildings and stuff," she said with her hand raised, stating the first thing that came to mind. "It takes forever, is super loud drilling or moving things, and they tend to get in the way ... like, people can't get around easily if they have to block off a street or something. People even get hurt making these buildings sometimes. ... It just seems a bit silly when wizards can just give their wand a wave and a building comes together within a matter of seconds without anyone needing to do any heavy lifting. The magical way is just waaaaaay more efficient and safer than what the Muggles do."

Jean-Luc was beyond amused at this point not only at the professor's mannerisms but at the situation at school overall. What's going to be next: why and how are wizard parents better than a muggle ones? Or how and why are magical treats better than muggle treats? Ect. The young boy suppressed a smirk and raised his hand.

"A flashlight." He said."Muggles need battery operated devices to produce light to help see in the dark. Magic places witches and wizards ahead of them. Jean-Luc elaborated. "Magic is better because wizards and witches don't have to worry about not carrying additional set of batteries or power chargers to light their way."

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

This class was awful. Ash resisted the urge to crumple to the floor. That would look stupid and invite punishment. "We have brooms, and muggles have planes. But our brooms don't pollute the environment. Also, we have like floo powder and stuff, and it's much faster." But there was no we. And if there was, Ash had never been a part of it. Nobody wanted her at this school or in this magical world, especially not her.

The longer, Lia sat there and listened to Professor Schmoe talk, the more sad she felt. His tone of voice, his mannerisms, the way he sounded so confused at times. It was all so heartbreaking. Every lesson this term was this way but there was just something about this man standing at the front of her room that really made her want to cry. Yet she couldn't quite put her finger on what it was.

Muggle machines? Well at least this wouldn't be too difficult to answer. Dahlia raised her hand. "Muggles have lots and lots of different machines for cooking. Lots of the machines only do one thing so they aren't used constantly and they take up space." Did she need to list them to give everyone an idea of what she was talking about? She hoped not cause there was just so many and with the Hooded Minions around... well she didn't really want to be listing Muggle machines in front of them. "Witches and Wizards could prepare an entire feast with a few waves of our wand. Our way is so much faster, doesn't take up any room or create any messes."

There were so many ‘bad’ things about Muggles Claudine had never considered. True, she grew up in a pureblood family and her relatives were proud of their status. They had tried to impose the superior feeling on her as she grew up and for some years, she went along with them with the belief that what they said was correct - witches and wizards were better than everyone else. But as she became older, Claudine was able to think for herself. Muggles, squibs, muggleborns, half bloods were definitely as bad as some made them out to be.

The fifth year almost gave Schmoe an apologetic look for making him wince. Yeah.. she wasn’t impressed with her response either. But you know, survival was essential here. Her head simply downed as she wrote her notes.

For the next question, Claudine spent less time thinking as an answer came quickly to her. Her hand went up again. “Muggles have equipment which helps them breathe underwater but we can use the Bubble head Charm.”
