Default Ancient Runes - EHWAZ! DANCE & DERBY (Lesson one)

ANCIENT RUNES - LESSON ONE

As you come into the Ancient Runes Classroom you notice it instantly. The Room was light blue, with some florescent magenta lamps lit in the corners and another light set up near the front of the class that emitted multiple starry white lights that moved around the classroom. Surely this hasn't been the weirdest classroom set up you've seen thus far in your time at Hogwarts? At the Center of the classroom was a Dance Floor. Beyond the Dance Floor is a little band set-up. Your Professor was pacing around the band instruments that were silently tuning themselves. Making sure that his magic was perfect and that the instruments would work on their own.

Pushed off in the corner was something large it was covered in a black cloth and it's shape looked a little odd. This should not concern you. It wasn't the most interesting thing in the room at the moment after all.

As he sees the students begin to file in he turns his attention toward you. "Please stand around the dance floor, not on it. Place your belongings behind you." He also took a look down at each of your feet. "Be sure to have on those comfortable shoes that I asked you to have on before class."

Say your hellos, talk among yourselves briefly. Class will begin shortly.


_____________

OOC: Come on in. Welcome to my first Ancient Runes class of the year. BUT THIS IS NOT YOUR STUDENTS FIRST AR CLASS IC. Yes, As this is currently October IC Professor Gunter would have had multiple classes before this one. So your students should be somewhat familiar with my Professor by now, as he would be with your student.

Also please familiarize yourself with the Classroom Rules if you have not already done so.

THE LESSON HAS OFFICIALLY STARTED. POST AS THOUGH YOU HAVE BEEN IN CLASS FRONT THIS POINT ON.

It was just a pity this required pairing up.

Soooo…

“Passst! Heath.'' The Snakette discreetly poked the boyfriend in his arm. "Be my partner, please.''


Heath hated being confused! He was a Ravenclaw, for Merlin's sake! Ravenclaws were supposed to have all the answers. He listened to the professor, hoping things would make more sense soon. Oh, Ehwaz… the rune associated with movement. That explained the dancing (sort of). Couldn't a less silly form of movement have served the same purpose though?

Try as he might, Heath couldn't think of a single thing to say about Ehwaz that his classmates hadn't already. He kept quiet during that discussion, jotting down notes on the others' answers, but he instantly perked up when he heard the instructions for the next activity. Racing was much more his speed (no pun intended) than dancing! The only thing that would make it better was if they got to actually build their own cars for the race.

Heath didn't have to look far for a partner. He chuckled softly as Claudine poked him. "Always," he replied, smiling. His eyes momentarily* flicked to the instructions written on the board, and he said, "So I guess we should practice the galdr."

Of course he’d always be her partner. Claudine expected nothing different because she knew him all too well. She quickly copied down the Galdr in her book for future reference as much as for practice. “You looked a bit confused earlier. Did you not understand something?” Her eyes flicked from her book to Heath. The Ravenclaw usually understood things a lot quicker than she did at times but if he needed help with something, Claudine would try her best.

With the Galdr noted in her book, Claudine eyed it. “I hate chanting these things. They sound so weird.” This was whispered to Heath. If Gunter heard, he’d probably throw her out of the lesson. But here goes nothing.

“ehwo ehwo ehwo e e e e h w o o o ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu e e e e h w o o o.”

Yes, Claudine felt foolish with every syllable she uttered. Whatever. The Galdr wasn’t that difficult to practice.

Violet looked around at Ivy, who was still standing near her, and asked, "Partners?" Violet was actually pretty good at galdor and was anxious to make up for her earlier inattention during the discussion.

"Another brilliant answer Aibhilinn. The Divine Twins. I wonder who those could be?" What she said truly made Oakey beam with joy. "Think of those two horses as Loki the Mare and Svadifari. Their ehem...romantic encounter helped create Sleipnir after all." Seems escaping the romantic motif of Ehwaz was impossible. "Time Travel....that discussion would take too long...or no time at all?"

"Excellent Answers everyone! It seems we found that out that Ehwaz is also not only the Rune for Movement, and Horses. It can enhance your magic, as Nemesis mentioned. It could also improve communication as Lydia noted, and it is the Rune for Partnership. What we're going to do next is to incorporate all of these into our activity for today."

With that Professor Gunter turned his attention to the the Large covered object. The light was hitting it perfectly from the windows in the classroom.

With a swish of his wand the cover vanished and he moved it carefully to the front of the classroom just in front of the stage. A rather intricate looking wooden racetrack stood before them. Sitting atop the track were six different little pinewood derby cars.

"Today we will all try to work together to have these little cars make it to the Finish Line." He picked up the the small silver car in his hand, the one he dubbed Silver Chariot. "Etched into each of the wooden cars is the Ehwaz rune." He turned the car upside down to show the rune to the students. "Modified Gandrs you might say. If you recall from my earlier lesson the Gandr is the magic wand for which runes are etched onto. So these little Race Cars will act as those for this activity."

"I will need you each to partner up. Three maximum for each pairing. Select one of the six Gandr Wand Cars and take them to the starting line at the top of the stage. From there you will recite the Galdr for Ehwaz while holding the car in your hands. The Galdr is the magical incantation you'll need to empower the Gandr for the Rune on it to work." Once more this was a part of an earlier lesson last month.

Professor Gunter went back to the top of the stage and held Silver Chariot close to his chest as he recited it's Galdr. "ehwo ehwo ehwo, e e e e h w o o o, ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo, ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu, e e e e h w o o o." He then held out the car to show everyone the backside where the Ehwaz was that it was now glowing a faint white light in it's etched location. "As you can see the magic is weak. That's partially due to altering the Gandrs to such an extent. Set the Cars to the top of the track and then one of you will release the cars down the track. Once that's done. quickly hop down to the obstacles on the track. With your partner you'll need to both recite the Galdr in harmony to keep the weakening magic on the cars from fading for each of the obstacles in their paths." He pointed toward each of the major hinderances they will face with the track. "If you and your partners are off even just a little while maintaining the rune on the back of the cars they could overshoot this gap." He pointed to the jump right near the start of the track. "The Cars could collide at this sharp turn" His hand motioned to the corner of the track. "Then finally if you both can't maintain the galdr in simpatico at this loop they will fall or loose momentum." He came down off the stage and moved behind the finish line. "The Goal isn't to beat your partner on this track. It's to work together. Make the Cars move effortlessly along this track and reach the finish line at the same time."

He then placed Silver Chariot back where it was previously with the other five pinewood derby gandrs. "You can all Partner Up now. Practice with each other reciting the galdr for Ehwaz and then once you feel you've gotten the hang of it come to the top of the stage and select your vehicles to use on the track. Don't be picky. They're all equally Brilliant."

With that Professor Gunter then also went over to his nearby Chalkboard and wrote out all the instructions a bit more simplified.




_______

OOC: MAIN ACTIVITY TIME

I'll have Oakey go about and help your characters if they are confused or frustrated or both. Maybe He'll even want to get into this activity himself. But partner up with each other first and foremost.

Don't worry about waiting for others to finish at the track. RP as though it is you and your partners turn to use it once they've finished practicing together. That way you can have your pick of which of the six cars you want to race with.

Your characters can fail at this. I actually encourage chaos at this point (within reason). Not everyone is going to succeed at completing the track on their first go.

Hopefully this is perfectly explained and I didn't miss a beat. If you have any questions PM me.

This Activity will finish on May 23rd. Then I will move on to ending the class from there.



As Professor Gunter used his wand to pull off a cover to something in the class and it looked something like...a racetrack? Oh, that's pretty interesting. and looking at the cars he also had for the activity. This WAS gonna be fun. Looking around the class, "Anyone want to partner up for this?" Not really sure who was gonna answer or anything, but it was worth a shot to see who would.



A racetrack. Noah wasn't at all too keen with the thing, although if he was still a ten-year-old like Nugget, this would've been fascinating, and he'd be super competitive with it, even if it really wasn't supposed to be a race. Sure thing was Noah's starting to grow into a young man, and it would take more than a racetrack and a derby to keep him interested. BUT, for the sake of his godfather and his love for Runes, Noah made the effort to look interested with the activity.

After choosing his derby, which was the X-Wing model, he'd sauntered to the next student who called out for a partner. "Me," hello, hi. Noah wasn't particularly choosy with partners, and it was kind of cool to be able to partner up with someone he wasn't totally familiar with. Aibhillinn was one of those students.

So...what's next?

"I'll go with Lisa, and Remy and V you guys can pair!" She hoped this arrangement wouldn't upset anyone. It just seemed like the easiest to pair up.
Lisa was super excited by Ollie's suggestion for the foursome to become two pairs. Maybe after this activity, they could be a group again, yeah? "Sure! Sounds good to me." She paused, noticing Remy's look quickly before adding. "Aaaaaaaaand then if there's another activity we can swap pairs too!" See problem solved! "Or we can be a foursome again!"

Compromising worked, yeah!

"How did that incantation or word thing he said go again? Something like ee-i-ee-i-o?" joked Lisa with a wicked, wicked smirk. She knew well enough that Professor Gunter HADN'T SAID that but she was wondering if anyone would try doing that cause she said it.

It obviously was ehwo like EH - WOAH... ooooor was it more EH-WOW. OR EH-WOO!

"Ollie, is it eh-wow, eh-woah, or eh-wooooo?" What was the correct pronunciation?

Group work again! And it sounded kinda fun, though also kinda hard. Ivy wasn't very confident in her galdr skills, so she would consider it a win if she could get the little car thing over the first jump successfully.

Oh, and there was Violet! "Yeah, sure!" She smiled, and upon catching sight of Misa as well, she waved to get her attention and motioned for her to join her and Violet. "I'm not very good at this though, so we might be better with three of us." Professor Gunter had said they could have a group of three after all, so the more the merrier, yeah? And hopefully the whole strength in numbers thing would make up for her own lackluster abilities here.

"Wait, do you think there's a spell or something to make us small enough?" He outright giggled this time, imagining him and Atlas zooming around in a toy car. It would definitely be fun to go around the loop-de-loop in it. And suddenly it was like nothing had changed since they were on the Hogwarts Express on their way to start their first year.
Atlas was distracted with purpose and experimentation, it helped slap a band aid on top of other otherwise emotionally spiraling thoughts and situations. And since Phoebe had mended his fingers, all that was water under the bridge and off a duck's back. Being more into term and away from other external factors, along with Atlas being none the wiser TO some of these external factors, helped what bricks that had been laid to build that wall between them feel more like hay that they could buff and puff and blow right on down.

"I KNOW there is! There is a potion and a spell AND one of the runes influences physical growth...we could totally figure something out." Was it obvious that he was giddy with this project and experimentation? It was, perhaps, the most excited he had been about school since he had started Hogwarts. "We need too practice the galdr first though," he nodded while raising his voice back to a normal level. "Best to start with pick a rhythm for us to keep the pace with...like...uh..." Atlas started tapping his foot and hitting his thigh to a beat. "Something like this?" he asked, keeping his words in line with the beat.

The external factors never left the periphery of Quinn's thoughts. The external factors.... some of them were what he had known for his whole life. They were never just... gone.

But, they could be far, far away.

Quinn grinned—they totally could figure something out. They would just.... have to talk the professor into letting them do it. That shouldn't be too hard, right? He nodded in agreement before focusing more on the lesson. He watched Atlas's rhythm, then started nodding his head and tapping his foot. "I think this works..." he said, trying to keep his words on rhythm, but they sort of fell off. He listened for a bit longer, and when he felt he had a good grasp on the beat he spoke. "Alright. 3... 2... 1... ehwo ehwo ehwo, e e e e h w o o o, ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo, ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu, e e e e h w o o o." He did his best to keep up with the rhythm, hoping that Atlas would be synced up with him. But he wasn't sure if he missed a beat at some point—he didn't think he did?

"I'm actually not too bad with galdor," Violet replied, "a lot better than I am at dancing. I think it'll be all right. It'll be fun." Maybe. Hopefully.

Violet saw Ivy motion Misa to join them. That was the girl who'd taken exception to her assumptions about Muggles in that Muggle Studies class. Violet hoped that wouldn't cause a problem now. Violet had been uncharacteristically vocal this year, but she was beginning to think that voicing your opinions was only likely to get you into trouble and that her default tendency to keep her thoughts to herself was the better plan after all.

Had Heath’s bewilderment been that obvious? To her, yes. But she understood why he was confused now. “Maybe not to others but I know you,’’ Claudine told him simply. “Perhaps the lesson plan made a lot more sense in the Professor’s head.” Farm animals? Claudine actually started to laugh; softly, of course. “You’ll have to sing that to me.’’ There were a lot of things Muggle related that she was oblivious about.

They always worked so well together, didn’t they? The Snakette could find no mistakes with their recitation of the galdr. At least not to her untrained ears. “I think we’re good to go,’’ she said, looking up at him. Listen, Claudine was excited to try out the racing, okay? “Can we please, please get the Cheese Wheelz?’’ She led the way to the top of the stage as Gunter had instructed. There was almost a child-like manner about her because of her excitement.

Compromising worked, yeah!

"How did that incantation or word thing he said go again? Something like ee-i-ee-i-o?" joked Lisa with a wicked, wicked smirk. She knew well enough that Professor Gunter HADN'T SAID that but she was wondering if anyone would try doing that cause she said it.

It obviously was ehwo like EH - WOAH... ooooor was it more EH-WOW. OR EH-WOO!

"Ollie, is it eh-wow, eh-woah, or eh-wooooo?" What was the correct pronunciation?
She laughed at Lisa's wonderfully bad reciting. It didn't surprise her that Lisa had forgotten how it went but thankfully She hadn't. "It's ehwo, Lees" She reminded, "Don't worry, I have it memorized. It's ' ehwo ehwo ehwo
e e e e h w o o o
ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo
ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu
e e e e h w o o o'"
She was glad that her friends could. bring a smile to her face. Some of the older students seemed really sad and uninterested in laughing sometimes.

Okay, Time to pick a car! Ollie grabbed Lisa's hand and tugged her up to the cars. Ollie looked around eyeing each one. She realllllyyy liked the shark car and hoped Lisa felt the same. "Which car do you like?" Should she tell Lisa which one she wanted or should she wait for Lisa to ask? Or would Lisa even ask? It was a very Lisa thing to not ask Ollie. She reminded herself that it wasn't a big deal to get the car you wanted for a silly school activity. But she did really want that shark.

She listened to Ollie as she corrected her. Lisa knew she was wrong but liked Ee-i-ee-i-OH much better. “Right,” she nodded before murmuring the incantation. e e e e h w o o o ehwuu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu e e e e h w o o o she thought and then recited it back to Ollie.

She then followed Ollie to the cars, letting herself be dragged along and then focused on the cars ahead of the two. Ooh there were certainly very INTERESTING CARS HERE!!! She flicked her eyes back and forth as Ollie asked her which one she preferred. “The shark. It has spunk. You good with that one?

He nodded in agreement before focusing more on the lesson. He watched Atlas's rhythm, then started nodding his head and tapping his foot. "I think this works..." he said, trying to keep his words on rhythm, but they sort of fell off. He listened for a bit longer, and when he felt he had a good grasp on the beat he spoke. "Alright. 3... 2... 1... ehwo ehwo ehwo, e e e e h w o o o, ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo, ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu, e e e e h w o o o." He did his best to keep up with the rhythm, hoping that Atlas would be synced up with him. But he wasn't sure if he missed a beat at some point—he didn't think he did?
Out of sight and out of mind!

It helped that Atlas was the sort to hyperfocus. Once class ended however..maybe his mind would slow down and pieces fall a little more into place instead of being forced into place.

While the Gryffindor may have two left feet, he apparently wasn't so bad at this part. Probably came from the family sing-alongs to showtunes dad forced them through now and then. Along with the more than occasional trip to the Phoenix Theater and West End. When Quinn began to chant, Atlas stopped on instinct to listen...and then remembered that he was meant to chant too and started where he had left off. Which meant for the first couple of seconds Atlas was e e e e e h - ing when he should have been w o o o - ing, and ehwe-ing when he ought to have been ehwa-ing. Laughing nervously, cheeks rosy and hand ruffling through his hair, Atlas ceased his own vocalizations while maintaining his thigh pat and listened to Quinn and waited for the opportune moment to chime back in.

"....ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu, e e e e h w o o o."

And he was smiling comfortably as they hit that last vowel, though that pink had spread and intensified across his cheeks and to his ears.

"Yeah..I think we've got it." Lifts his hand for a high five. "Now let's go get that Silver Chariot!"

Remy decided to take the lead with the activity, since she just wanted to get it done so the class would be over. She was feeling a little grumpy, so wasn't really in the mood for talking, although she was careful not to take her bad mood out on V. Nothing to do with her, and Remy didn't want to get on anyone's bad side. She read through the words on the board in her head to start with.

Remy then wrote the words down as reference:

Quote:
ehwo ehwo ehwo
e e e e h w o o o
ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo
ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu
e e e e h w o o o
"Ehwo... ehwo... ehwo..." She read the words after each other, in a monotone. "E e e..." This felt ridiculous. Thankfully the room was filled with other students chanting it, too. "... e e h w o o o..."

The tricky part... "Ehwu... ehwa... ehwu, no... ehwi..." GAH... this was annoyingly difficult. Why couldn't they just do this on their own? "Ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo." She had that part down, now just to reverse it.

"Eh... wo... ehwo ehwa ewhi ehwe ehwo..." Remy THOUGHT she had it right. The last few sounds were simple so Remy didn't bother saying those out loud.

"I think I’ve got it. Shall we try pronouncing it together??" Remy asked V. But she was itching to choose the cheese car for the next part of the activity.

Apollo frowned because it seemed like there was some sort of inside jokes going on between Lia and Tadgh (hadn't he said that? He'd been preoccupied to realize he'd used a nickname but goodness that slytherin boy was TOUCHY!). Also apparently didn't want to dance with him as a group??? So weird? What did he think this was ... some romantic dance? But as quickly as the dancing crazy started, it was time to settle down and focus and how were they meant to focus when Professor Gunter was giving them a LONG STORY clearly meant to put them all to sleep. Wait, was this meant to tire them out???

The second year didn't quite catch much of anything in regards the noble steed or the relationship with runes, but one thing he was certain of was about the dancing like crazy. It was probably to get the zoomies out, since that was like an AGE OLD trick adults like to use on kids when they were acting crazy was to let them be crazy for a few minutes.

Or uh.... apparently they were talking about ehwaz? Goodness, Apollo really needed to read his rune textbook. Perhaps he should partner with Quinn for a study session later because Apollo did take notice of that praise he was getting from Professor Gunter. Apollo stared with envy at the ravenclaw because wowwwwwww!!! It was his thoughts that had him completely distracted and missing the next question about attributes and ehwaz and truth be told, Apollo wasn't sure he would have a good answer anyway.

Did Lia and Tadgh want to be a trio group? Did they just want to partner with each other? Whichever was the case, Apollo would just wait and practice his galdr recitation so he didn't act like a complete idiot when his turn to race came up. "ehwo ehwo ehwo, e e e e h w o o o, ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo, ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu" Weird. Just a bunch of sounds, wasn't it? Was it time to race yet?? Was that a BATMOBILE!?!? but the thunder car looked cool too??? Or the Shark one with FLAMES?!?

He followed her to the stage, smiling at her childlike excitement. He was excited too! As for which car, he was partial to the X-wing himself because Star Wars reference, but seeing Claudine happy was more important. “Cheese Wheelz it is!” he replied, picking up the racer. “It’s a shame we don’t have a toy mouse to be the driver…” How cute would that be? A little mouse driving a cheese car!

What were they supposed to do next? Heath glanced at the directions on the board. “So now we say the Galdr again, I suppose…” Then another thought occurred to him. “When the time comes, do you want to put the car on the track or should I?”

A racetrack. Noah wasn't at all too keen with the thing, although if he was still a ten-year-old like Nugget, this would've been fascinating, and he'd be super competitive with it, even if it really wasn't supposed to be a race. Sure thing was Noah's starting to grow into a young man, and it would take more than a racetrack and a derby to keep him interested. BUT, for the sake of his godfather and his love for Runes, Noah made the effort to look interested with the activity.

After choosing his derby, which was the X-Wing model, he'd sauntered to the next student who called out for a partner. "Me," hello, hi. Noah wasn't particularly choosy with partners, and it was kind of cool to be able to partner up with someone he wasn't totally familiar with. Aibhilinn was one of those students.

So...what's next?


Looking over hearing a reply to her...huh...this was definitely unexpected. She definitely was not one to really partner up with anyone and even if she asked, a lot wouldn't really reply to the Seventh Year. Don't know if they were intimidated by her, maybe it was her resting Draven face, or it was just the fact she was a Seventh Year and wasn't really a social one at that, but nonetheless, she had found a partner. She gave him a little wave and nodded. "Cool. Cool, I have a partner." Approaching him, she saw the car in his hand. "Looks like a good one...let's see what we can do. We gotta try to say these words on the board..."

Looking at the board, she tried reading the words as best as she can, "ehwo ehwo...ehwo...e e e e h w o o o..." She felt like a robot saying these words and chuckled to herself. "Well, this is a little difficult...what do you make out of those words?" asking her partner.

Okay great! Ollie was very excited that Lisa agreed with her original choice. Now they would both be happy. "Yes! That was the one I was thinking too." She was glad that Lisa was getting on well with her. She reached for the car and picked it up for her group. "Let's go then!"

She turned and headed over toward the track that was set out for the cars. As badly as Ollie wanted to recite the Galdr herself, she thought it would be more polite to ask Lees if she wanted to say it instead."So... How do you wanna do this? I can say the Galdr if you want, then you can let it go! Or vise-versa." Okay she really wanted to say the Galdr. She hoped that the teacher would notice of well she could recite it, not that it was a very hard thing to do, but Ollie thrived on validation from her teachers.

"I'm not very good at this though, so we might be better with three of us." Professor Gunter had said they could have a group of three after all, so the more the merrier, yeah? And hopefully the whole strength in numbers thing would make up for her own lackluster abilities here.
Misa nodded. "Well it seems easy enough. We just have to make the car go fast down the track." She eyed the track. "There are other ways to make it go rather than a silly incantation."

Like weights. Couldn't they just put weights on the thing to make it go faster?

Anyway.

She tapped her foot in time to a simple beat. "Ehwo, ehwo, ehwo..." she said testing it out.

Claudine rubbed her nose, casually using her hand to hide the fact that she was laughing. Yes, the girl understood why Heath said the Galdr reminded him of that song. “I don’t blame you for thinking what you think.’’ Merlin. It was hilarious, okay? Oh no. She probably should have asked if he had a car in mind but in her excitement, she hadn’t thought of it. Sorry, Heath. “Is that a Muggle thing?’’ Claudine asked, picking up the Cheese Wheelz and referring to the whole mouse topic.

“Yes, we chant that weird thing.’’ The Snakette held out the Wheelz for Heath to take. “That should answer your question.” Claudine eyed the track. “Ready?” Here went the chanting again. “ehwo ehwo ehwo e e e e h w o o o ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu e e e e h w o o o.” And there she was thinking about that farm song.

Quinn found Atlas's mess ups amusing—he was smiling through the galdr, and did his best not to mess it up with a chuckle. It was surprisingly fun to do together, actually. And when they finally got it down pat, it felt good.

And then those stupid butterflies were back. He hadn't felt them in a while, probably because he was too preoccupied with not dying, plotting escapes, appeasing his parents, staying on top of his schoolwork. Not getting them on purpose. Crushing them as soon as they popped up. But he let his guard down. His smile faltered a bit. "Y-yeah, let's do it..!" He did his best to push past it as he gave Atlas a high-five. Take a flamethrower to the stomach. No more little fluttery wings, nosirree. None as they went up and got the Silver Chariot from the front of the class and went over to the racetrack. "This.... would definitely be fun to go around in a toy car," Quinn said as he examined the track.

I have an addiction to cheddar cheese. But it's only mild. Ever tried to eat a clock? It's time-consuming.

Oh dear!! Oakey you Unlucky FOOL! If only he hadn't been so engrossed in the Sleipnir myth. Perhaps he could have provided his students a bit more time. They would all need to wrap up very soon. Their next classes were going to start shortly. He looked around to each of the students who were perfecting the galdr and was very pleased with their progress. Some had even begun to go to the track itself.

It was a shame, but luckily for them he had plans for this track still in place. They would not be disappointed.

"Brilliant work everyone. You're all doing splendidly. Make sure you enunciate the galdr. It's just as important as pronouncing a spell correctly."

He moved toward the top of the stage once more from pacing among the students overlooking their progress. "We'll need to wrap up shortly. If you've not been to the track yet. Don't worry, keep practicing the galdr with your partners. Being in unison and keeping in harmony is just as important. After today you'll find the track and the gandr cars in the Study Lounge. You can all still have your chance to try the track out in there during any free time." Consider that some good proper extra credit activity time. "If you're up at the track now. Go ahead and finish your run." He swished his wand and the classroom door behind them swung open. "Don't forget to collect your bags around the Dance Floor before you leave. For Homework study the remaining Runes from the third Aett. Same one that Ehwaz is on." In case they needed that info on where the third Aett was again.

"Thank you for indulging in my youthful need to Dance. Hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did."

___________

OOC: I bumped the class to stay open a little bit longer to give y'all some extra time to get more of the activity in, but I will be closing the class down in 12 HOURS EST. If you think you can get a run in on the track go for it before you post your students departing. Don't stress out if you can't, you can't. Like Professor Gunter said we'll have the track ready to use in the Runes Study Room right after I close this thread. Thanks for giving my first go as the AR Prof such a rewarding experience.

A racetrack. Noah wasn't at all too keen with the thing, although if he was still a ten-year-old like Nugget, this would've been fascinating, and he'd be super competitive with it, even if it really wasn't supposed to be a race. Sure thing was Noah's starting to grow into a young man, and it would take more than a racetrack and a derby to keep him interested. BUT, for the sake of his godfather and his love for Runes, Noah made the effort to look interested with the activity.

After choosing his derby, which was the X-Wing model, he'd sauntered to the next student who called out for a partner. "Me," hello, hi. Noah wasn't particularly choosy with partners, and it was kind of cool to be able to partner up with someone he wasn't totally familiar with. Aibhilinn was one of those students.

So...what's next?


Looking over hearing a reply to her...huh...this was definitely unexpected. She definitely was not one to really partner up with anyone and even if she asked, a lot wouldn't really reply to the Seventh Year. Don't know if they were intimidated by her, maybe it was her resting Draven face, or it was just the fact she was a Seventh Year and wasn't really a social one at that, but nonetheless, she had found a partner. She gave him a little wave and nodded. "Cool. Cool, I have a partner." Approaching him, she saw the car in his hand. "Looks like a good one...let's see what we can do. We gotta try to say these words on the board..."

Looking at the board, she tried reading the words as best as she can, "ehwo ehwo...ehwo...e e e e h w o o o..." She felt like a robot saying these words and chuckled to herself. "Well, this is a little difficult...what do you make out of those words?" asking her partner.

Noah held up their car with a grin towards the older student, and followed her to look at the board with the incantation. The thing with runes was that they had to enunciate the silly chant for the runes to work its magic. Perhaps it was the only thing that put him off with the subject. Couldn't they chant it quietly, or at all? Was there a spell for the runes to work without having to sing? Practicality was what Noah's after, and he'd hoped they would be taught how to activate runes in another way. Y'know, a cooler way to do it?

"To be honest, it sounds like a muggle ambulance down an empty road. WEE WOO WEE WOO!" he said with a snort, almost taking a jab at the galdr. Couldn't blame him really because it was silly AND awkward, and it was putting a damp on his cool attitude. "But basically it just matches up with the name of the rune. Ehwaz, ehwo... wee woo wee woo thing." the Gryffindor shrugged as he turned the derby over in his hand to see the Ehwaz. "This thing should glow first... then, we can move over to the track while chanting the galdr together." that way they could get the derby going.

Or maybe not, as he momentarily shifted his attention to Professor G.

Noah had to agree that story-telling had been a bit long, because they haven't even got their turn at the racetrack. "Anyway, let's try the galdr at least. I suppose that's the point of the lesson." clearing his throat, Noah began to recite!sing the chant: "ehwo ehwo ehwo ... e e e e h w o o o ... ehwu ehwa ehwi ehwe ehwo ... ehwo ehwe ehwi ehwa ehwu ... e e e e h w o o o" Noah must've done something right as the Ehwaz started to glow. Not as bright as he'd hoped, but at least it was something. "Woohoo. Your turn," he said, offering the derby to Aibhilinn.

Violet saw Ivy motion Misa to join them. That was the girl who'd taken exception to her assumptions about Muggles in that Muggle Studies class. Violet hoped that wouldn't cause a problem now. Violet had been uncharacteristically vocal this year, but she was beginning to think that voicing your opinions was only likely to get you into trouble and that her default tendency to keep her thoughts to herself was the better plan after all.

Like weights. Couldn't they just put weights on the thing to make it go faster?

Anyway.

She tapped her foot in time to a simple beat. "Ehwo, ehwo, ehwo..." she said testing it out.
"Perfect!" If Violet was good at this, then maybe it wouldn't be so bad. And maybe Misa was good too, considering she thought it looked easy. Ivy agreed if they were talking about the actual words of it, but actually making it do something, that part wasn't as easy for her. But hopefully they could make it work!

Maybe a quick practice though for sure, like Misa was doing.

"Ehwo ehwo ehwo," she began carefully, "e e e e h w o o o, ehwu ehwa ehwo eh- Er, wait no." What was it again? Ehwu ehwa eh... She glanced at Violet then looked over her notes too.
