Default Muggle Studies Lesson 2: Highly Specific Muggle Objects


Hello, hello, hello. Another day, another lesson.

The classroom set up is nothing outlandish today. The room itself is eerily organized with a clean whiteboard, plenty of wiggle room, and nothing but the castle's new candles and a corny poster or two decorating the walls. Instead of rows of desks, there are several round tables set up for students to sit at and each has a basket of Healer Poppy's famous ~ bREaaAAaad ~ . Hopefully you saved some room after lunch so that you can have a nibble. It smeeeeeells deliiiiiiightful in here.

Your Professor is sat at his desk sans anything. Though he's usually fidgeting with some thing-a-mabob, he's actually just tip-tapping his fingers against his desk in antici-wait for it-pation this time around. What could you possibly be learning about today? Not the half eaten tuna sandwich on Schmoe's desk. That's just his unfinished lunch. 

OOC: hi friends. welcome to our second ooc lesson of the term. be sure to familiarize yourself with the classroom rules if you haven't already. I’ll post in about 24-28 hours to officially start the lesson.

Lesson Progress:

+ Mini-Activity: Let's, uh, get the mess under control and find markers!
+ Question One: Pick a gadget, any gadget! What do you think it's used for?
+ Question Two: What are some inconveniences in our lives that we can fix with spells, but that a muggle might simply have to deal with?
+ Main Activity: Let's invent together!

It could have been worse. Er. Maybe. ”I’m alright. I’m, er, I’m quite alright,” he replied to Claudine and Dahlia with a big thumbs up as he attempted to laugh it off and push himself off the ground. Everything was FiNe.

His name was FIN(n)EAS for a reason!!!!

Perhaps.

As for his face… ”Er. I hope so, heh,” he chuckled awkwardly, looking away from Serena and back to some of the other students. Because his face wasn’t hurting, but it was most certainly still RED. Perhaps even redder than before. Yes. Maybe even that. And though he could summon the box, Remy was absolutely, positively correct! This was a muggle studies class and they would not be using magic because there were RULES about these things.

Rules that students kept blatantly disregarding !!!!! Though Finneas wasn’t any good at discipline, rules were rules and he needed to put an end to this no matter how much it pained him to do so. Mr. Mordrake! There is, er, there is no magic to be used in this classroom. That is. That will be. Er. Three points from Slytherin.”

And also, while he was on the subject. ”The next person to use magic will, er, will be spending all of next week with me in detention.” Please do not use magic. Finneas hated giving detentions. He did, however, appreciate those students who offered their assistance, even brightening at the mention of organization! ”Er. Ms. Blaze, Ms. Fox… That is, er, that is a wonderful idea.” And Finneas would need all the help he could get. Organizing was not his forte. As evidenced by the fact that he would likely never realize that one of his yoyos had been stolen. Fortunately for Daniel, Finneas didn’t keep a proper inventory of his things, though er. Perhaps he should look into doing that.

”I, er, the box of markers should be… ORANGE. If anyone can, er, locate it,” he called out, sifting through all the items strewn about on the floor.

Schmoe received a nod of acknowledgement, whether to his greeting, his rule reminder, or his points deduction, it was... not really that hard to say, as it came right after the latter. Sure, sure, take the points. Have at it.

After that, Nem just sat by quietly and continued waiting, neither pleased not displeased when Blackthorne joined their table. Classroom was filling up; someone would have had to sit there sooner or later. They watched the Noodle as he got his lesson underway, narrowing their eyes infinitesimally at the whole bit with the markers, and then...

Merlin knew how he'd survived this long. The man was a danger to himself. A walking catastrophe.

They were planning to stay put, let those who were so eager to please head over and get stuck in with the grunt work, and even stayed put when they perceived Fox making her way over to them. Nem shot a side-eye at her as she spoke, figuring the use of their first name was some misguided attempt at manipulation, to act like they were friends and then ask for a favour, and-... yes, there it was. They said nothing, even as she moved away; pretended like they'd not heard a word she said. Half a minute or so later, they pushed up out of their seat and crossed the classroom.

But not to mess with the bread. No, Nem reached the other side of the room, to where a few fidget spinners had skittered a good distance along the floor, and scooped them up, just as the Noodle was making his detention threat to the masses. As it was getting crowded over in the clean-up efforts, Nem placed the fidget spinners in a neat row on the Noodle's desk, set each one spinning, and returned to their own table, by way of Fox's.

It was there, the bread, and then they passed the table, and the basket was gone. Just like magic, though of course it couldn't have been, after they'd been reminded not to use magic. Nemesis Upstead would never, and also nobody could prove it, though it might be fun if they tried.

Ashley "Ash" C. Fox
Fourth Year
Default

Ash wasn't actually trying to manipulate Upstead. It was just... she kinda lowkey needed help. Like immediately. Your enemies weren't always enemies when you needed help. And she didn't hate Upstead very much anymore, because she had let that scar heal a little bit to make herself feel better. She didn't wanna think about why she hated them anymore.

She wasn't even sure she had called them Nem. Not that she had forgotten, but this whole interaction about bread was kinda hazy. Blurry almost. Like she had forgotten to wear her glasses. Which was weird, because she had good eyesight and good memory. You don't think about the bread. And the memory became more and more out of focus... she wasn't sure what she had asked them, or what they had said, or even if this was an interaction that happened in reality and not inside her head.

Somehow, she was at the closet again, and Mamie was just... holding stuffed animals. That wasn't very helpful. "Mamie, the stuffed animals go in the closet." She took a couple of them and put them in the closet. Helpfully.

Ash decided that she should work on calculators next. They could be stacked, and they didn't have wheels. A perfect thing to organize. She put them on a middle shelf (easy access!), taking up 1/3 or so of it.

Some might say that she had organizational skills. Ash would definitely say so.

Was that her partner in crime, Mr. vice president of the monarchy, the lord of divination, Kayne getting in trouble over there??? She took his side of course. She gave Schmoe the evil eye, but said nothing. It was only three points after all, and she doubted Kayne would want her to get in trouble over this. But. She was watching. Always.

Some might say that Schmoe was awful at discipline. And that included Ash. He had no presence. That's why everybody kept breaking the rules.

Ash drifted back towards her seat. Bread... she needed more bread. More bread. But there was no bread. It was vanished. Upstead must have done it. That made Ash feel weird inside. A combination of anger, guilt, and gratefulness. Mostly gratefulness. But also confusion. As usual, she just ignored those emotions. What mattered was that the bread was gone. She gave a silent nod of acknowledgement in Upstead's direction. Thank you. And Ash was not going to snitch on them. She hadn't even seen them do it, technically. So legally and formally, there really was no proof. But even if she had seen it, she wasn't going to tell anyone.

Ashley Fox was not exactly known to abide by the rules. Or the laws, actually. Arson was illegal.

Back to organizing.

Rolling his shoulders and getting himself properly situated, he leaned over just a bit to whisper to his felly Gryffindor. "I still have to give him the talk," he nodded gravely. Did Remy know the one? Atlas didn't really have time to dive all that much into THE SPEECH explanation since Professor Schmoe was officially beginning things. Though Atlas felt it was a pretty favorable calculated risk in continuing their conversation since this WAS Professor Schmoe and he was a wet blanket when it came to discipline so...

Speaking of anyway.

The second year was glad that someone, not him, had mentioned the summoning of magic and then been reprimanded by Remy because...it spared him from saying that and being the one to do it and being mildly humiliated. And then another Slytherin did that very thing and summoned the markers. Seemed like all Slytherins were thinking alike in the moment. Interesting.

Anyway...this whole closet thing told Atlas several things about the professor. Disorganization was a sign of laziness, didn't you know? Also, Atlas disapproved of this when it came to Aunt June. No sir.

Following Remy, Atlas glanced around at everyone else working (and not working) and sighed heavily. Professors really had them out here doing house elf work this term. First the candles and now rummaging through a mess for markers and helping the Muggle Studies professor clean up a mess that he had created.

But...when Professor Schmoe mentioned that the box was orange, Atlas began pulling anything orange in color and setting it aside beside him.

Ughhhh

The no magic policy in the classroom was so dull. However, now thinking about it Kayne did somewhat understand it's importance. He just had to imagine that he was back home where his own father had a similar rule. If something didn't require the use of magic, then magic wasn't supposed to be used. With this in mind, the Slytherin boy just quietly spoke "Sorry Professor." A sigh shortly followed. The three point loss wasn't something too bad, Kayne was just grateful that Schmoe didn't automatically give him a detention. Now that would have been a call for defiance if it happened.

Sifting through the items, listening to chitter chatter of the room, Kayne set out to find the box. Thinking allowed, the boy put forth a hopeful notion towards the Professor. "Professor Schmoe, if someone finds the box, could they possibly earn 3 points for their house?" The students were be extremely helpful after all. Some of them such as Ash and Mamie had even went that extra mile to organize the clutter. Something that most likely rarely happened in this classroom.

As he was searching, Mordrake found some stuffed animals. Remembering that he had overheard Ash say something about where they went, but too lazy to actually put them there, Kayne just tossed them towards her. "Your majesty!" Brief pause for dramatic effect. "Think fast!" As the stuffed bear came towards her through the air.

Dahlia beamed at Professor Schmoe and gave him a big double thumbs up in return. If he said he was 'fine' then she was going to have to take his word for it. "That's good. I'm glad you aren't hurt, Sir." Truly she was. Her little heart couldn't handle anymore strife, last term had been more than enough.

Organizing was easy. At home she was the youngest of five.. still in the house. There was much older adult siblings with kids of their own and cousins and aunts and uncles. Their family was a large one. So when it came to family events or even cleaning up things needed to be a certain way. Everything should have a place of its own.

So when Lia noticed Atlas collecting orange things, anytime she came across something orange she would pick it up and bring it over to him. All stuffies were cuddled for a moment or two (cause who in their right mind couldn't help but cuddle a stuffie?!) before she brought them over to Ash and Mamie near the closet so they could put them on the shelves.

Remy SNORTED LOUDLY at her friend after his ‘the talk’ comment. She, however, would comment no further as it would guarantee a detention spot. She knew plenty about ‘the talk’ since having an older sister… well, as much as her sister had told her. The main topic of the talk being that cooties were not real.

Using magic was banned in this class, and so it should be. It said a lot about today’s society that we couldn’t survive without magic for one mere lesson.

!!!! - the audacity of that Slytherin.

Uhh… you shouldn’t have -“ she started her witty response to the boys spell casting, and total disregard of the rules, but Professor Schmoe had already confirmed that she, in fact, had the correct attitude towards muggle studies. Remy’s face was a picture of smugness as she smirked at the older student who lost house points over it. Heheheoaoo… maybe Schmoe should deposit Slytherin’s loss straight into Gryffindors account.

Back to the task in hand… finding those markers… and it had quickly become a snore fest. “Are you sure the markers are here, Professor?” Remy was starting to wonder if this was just a lesson that being a muggle meant needing to keep organised, due to lack of summoning charms. “I give up.”

Merlin’s beard, being a muggle was exhausting.

Claudine had been about to remind Serena that magic wasn’t allowed during a Muggle Studies lesson but another student beat her to it. That was fine because really, her concern was only about Schmoe. Miraculously, the man said to be doing fine. Claudine eyed him and his thumbs up. “If you say so, Professor.’’

Right.

Onto organising now. It seemed that some of her classmates had started doing exactly that, which was a good thing. It would make things easier for them and Schmoe. Claudine decided to stick with the toy vehicles. She grabbed a few others that were strewn about: a fire engine, trucks, more cars… She reckoned these were all for curriculum purposes… though if Schmoe liked playing with them during his spare time she wouldn’t judge him. Schmoe’s lesson on assumptions had left a huge impact on her, you see.

Anyway.

The Snakette selected a shelf in the cupboard and set to neatly lining up the vehicles, organising them by type.

Oops we’ll she hadn’t really meant to make her Head of House fret THAT MUCH? Or had she???

Talk later? Lisa nodded, playing it cool, before repeating said birthday. She smiled at Daniel. It was weird to think he was younger than her… but it also made a lot of sense too… He was taller but she was older. She nodded as she wrote that down in her book for safe keeping before Claudine and Heath joined them. BIG SMILES FOR BOTH but the Star Wars comment brought an even bigger GRIN to her lips. “Master Kenobi,” she said as she saluted him briefly before becoming incredibly distracted BY WHISPERS. She turned her gaze in the direction of said whispers to find Atlas and Remy…. She wondered what they were whispering about and *le gasp!* Lisa’s overimaginative mind went to work.

The beginning of the class was certainly a memorable start that Lisa was sure to remember for all her Hogwartian career. She winced as several- an understatement naturally- a literal avalanche of gadgets, gizmos, and thingmabobs fell from the closet and onto Schmoseph. Oof. That was painful. She had experienced a similar phenomenon but with beanie babies at home that she had tried to fit into one closest. Quickly clean things up for a treat, her parents had said. They didn’t need to know that it would all fall out afterwards. And of course, she didn’t remember that she had boobytrapped said door when she was with her siblings two days later. Nu-uh. Heroically, she had strategically taken the fall but at what COST?! ;_;

…..Of course Maya had known it had been her and taught her the beauty of organization. Nothing astray. Maya could certainly 5S that closet in no time. Everything would be labeled, cleaned, and aesthetically put in the right, logical place.

Anyway now they were playing 52 plus random item pick up… Lisa joined in and helped sorting through various things. Professor Schmoe had quite a peculiar collection of items in said closet. An older boy’s comment about earning points certainly sparked her interest. She was always up for challenges. Orange box —- where are you????? “How big is the box is it like a pencil case size or like VCR size?” she asked as she tried to approximate the size of the box with her hands as she looked at Schmoe. “Is it magnetic or plastic?

THESE WERE THINGS THE RAVENCLAW NEEDED TO KNOW!

If it was magnetic, she’d find a magnet and use that to her advantage. Heh. Physics for the WIN.

Heath smiled back at Lisa, giving her a salute in return. Somehow he knew she'd appreciate the Star Wars greeting! Out of the corner of his eye, he saw Claudine's smile too, and he had just enough time to return it before the lesson began. Looking to the front, he focused his attention on Professor Schmoe as he spoke. He watched the Professor try not once but twice to write on the board, his curiosity piqued more each time the man tried to finish that sentence. They'd be speaking about what? Don't leave him hanging!

All he could do was blink, unsure whether to be amused or concerned as all that stuff fell on Professor Schmoe. For some reason, that vaguely reminded him of cleaning his room when he was a little kid. He'd just stuff everything into the wardrobe, only for it to tumble out again the next time it was opened, just like the stuff in Professor Schmoe's cupboard. He had to stifle a laugh at the memory as he got up to help.

Merlin, what a mess! How were they going to find anything in this?! He overheard that Slytherin's (Serena) suggestion to summon the box, and personally he agreed with it. He knew this was muggle studies, but couldn't they make an exception just this once? Apparently not, as someone (Kayne) was losing house points for doing just that. Never mind then… His dark eyes darted about the room as he wondered where to start. He saw Ash and Mamie with the stuffed animals and Claudine organizing the toy cars. Was anybody organizing the legos yet? Maybe he'd start there.

Heath moved about the room, picking up the little plastic blocks as he went. When he couldn't fit any more in his hands, he brought them back to the cupboard and arranged them in neat little piles according to color. Was there a spare bin or box lying around somewhere? He looked but didn't see one. Maybe one would surface eventually as they cleaned. Until then he had a better idea! He began sticking same-colored legos together until he had several little towers in various colors. Red tower, blue tower, gray tower black tower…

When he finished sorting the batch of legos he found, he sifted through the stuff still not put away to find some more. He even found a few Lego people scattered on the floor. He kept adding to the towers, then placed them nearly on a shelf with the Lego people arranged neatly in front.

"Duuuh," The redhead rolled her eyes at the girl's (Remy) comment. She obviously knew this was Muggle Studies class, but for the sake of their learning, a professor losing material was not going to teach them anything, and Serena was here to learn. Not waste her time.

Unless...in Schmoe fashion, losing the markers WAS part of the learning experience.

She also wasn't dumb enough to cast magic without the professor's permission...

Oh. There goes one of her own kind...casting...a ...spell...

An older boy nonetheless. EYE ROLL. Boys. Serena shot him (Kayne) a scowl. He was going to have to make up those points. Slytherin wasn't first place, yet.

At least, Schmoe's face was okay. "What if the elves took your box of markers and are making secret crafts in the kitchens?" Serena inquired as she searched through the mess for more LEGGOs for the little Eiffel Tower she started making. "And that's why the kitchens are closed." Baby blue eyes flashed sadly at Schmoe. "Did you know the kitchens' locked?"

Did he? Because that meant no ice cream whenever she wanted a light snack.

Finneas didn’t catch the look that Ashley had given him, nor did he notice that Nemesis had taken the liberty of vanishing yet another basket of bread. But !!!! Hopefully this would be the end of magic in the classroom because taking away six points had already taken quite a toll on Finneas Schmoe. Detentions were the worst of all evils. Couldn’t they all just follow the rules? It’d be a win-win for everybody. Even Schmoe’s noodle body.

Finneas was especially appreciative that people were making an effort to find the markers, noting Atlas’ strategy of separating the oranges items and Dahlia’s efforts in helping him do that. These kiddos were a good bunch. They really were.

Finneas offered Mordrake a nod in response to his apology. ”Yes, er, I am willing to consider that.” He would always offer opportunities for redemption. Should Kayne find the box of markers, he my find himself without a point deficit. It was a big if though. Because, er, so far… The box of markers was nowhere to be found. But! Losing hope? Not on Schmoe’s watch. ”I am quite sure, Ms. Gaeltheos!” He called back, giving her a big thumbs up. That was encouraging, right? Perhaps she could team up with Ms. Blaze, who was making quick work of sifting through the items.

”Er.” Ms. Nam came in with a great question. Perhaps detail would be helpful in this regard. Heh. Er. ”It’s, er, about the size of a carton of eggs!” He bobbed his head, turning to see Mr. Jones’ lego pile. Ah. Legos. A man’s best friend.

Finneas was just about to address the class again, when he heard Serena’s question and it… made him pause. Blink. Blink. Blink. Er. ”I, er, I don’t believe the elves would have any interest in my markers.” As for that second thing. ”….. I was not aware, no, but I'm certain the elves have a good reason for it” he paused for a long moment. Huh. The kitchens were closed? How peculiar. Maybe it was due to all the bread that was being made.

__________________


Er. AnYwAy. It seemed as though they weren’t about to find the markers quite yet, so perhaps it was time to make use of their circumstances! ”Er, thank you to all those who are helping to locate the box of markers… If anyone finds them, please let me know. But er. In the meantime, let’s get started, shall we?” Nothing like some IMPROVISATION to make the world go round.

”As you can see, we are, er, surrounded by what may seem like some strange gadgets and gizmos that wizards don’t have much of a use for. But er. These tools are used by muggles in one way or another.” For what? Well, that was spoilers! ”Please pick one of the gadgets before you and venture a guess as to what it might be used for. This will, er, this will lead us into our lesson for the day! - One at a time, please raise your hands.”

Yes.

A silver lining!

C'mon up, folks! Plenty of gadgets, gizmos, and more to choose from!

OOC: Have your charrie pick something up from the pile of stuff and make a guess as to what the heck it's used for! I have some example images here, but feel free to use your imagination for something your kid might've come across! Don't feel limited by my examples!

We'll move on in about 22-24 Hours.

Why was there so much stuff to sort through? And how did the Professor manage to fit it all in the closet in such a cluttered mess? Both were questions that Kayne wanted to know the answer to, but he refrained from asking. Then a voice was being directed towards him (Remy), and the boy turned to see a smug look being thrown in his direction. Being the petty person he was, he just raised an eyebrow, made an expression of 'you really wanna go there queen?', and just gave her two good double blinks. Besides that though, Kayne refused to outwardly show any sign of actually being phased by the somewhat snide remark.

Taking a look around, he also took notice of another student, a fellow Slytherin (Serena), giving him a scowl. Kayne just shrugged towards her way. It would take a lot more than just a scowl to get a reaction from the hazel eyed kid. Plus, it was just three points. Three points which could easily be earned back apparently as Kayne listened to Professor Schmoe state that points could potentially be rewarded upon finding the box.

This really set him into high gear on finding those markers. So, what the boy started to do was grab as much of the objects he could between his arms, and Kayne would then move them up and down above his lap; letting the items slowly fall down. With no marker box in sight yet, Kayne pushed those items to the side in a little pile, making sure it was out of everyone's way though. Also, he went about it so that way it didn't look completely disorganized, but he didn't take too much time to actually sort through what he grabbed.

After the first pile, Kayne proceeded to do the same thing again. Taking some more items, and sifting through them. As the items started to fall down, his eyes lit up with joy when he saw something which landed in his lap. It was the box of markers! This also gave the young deviant a perfect opportunity to play with the Professor's question. Hiding it from view at first, Kayne raised his hand high in the air, then saying "Professor, I do believe these objects," With that he gave the big reveal of the box of markers in his other hand "Are called markers I think? And I do believe they are used for writing stuff down." The Slytherin couldn't help but turn this find of the lost items into a moment that he relished in with delight.

Ash didn't want to think about Upstead anymore. So she didn't. She thought about stuffed animals and calculators instead. Speaking of... her vice president was throwing stuffed animals at her. And saying 'think fast'. Never a great idea with Ash.

She caught the stuffed animal reflexively as her life flashed through her eyes. Then she instinctively said several loud rude words before grinning and putting the stuffed animal on the proper shelf. "Stuffed animals aren't my choice of projectile, vice president. But you do you." She laughed and went back to organizing.

Oh look! Kayne had found the markers! HA HA HA. Ash clapped very politely, just like a queen would. She was filled with glee that:

A. her vice president was the one to find the markers
and
B. all the people going 'blah blah blah rules points magic blah blah blah' were NOT the ones to find it.

Okay, so maybe glee wasn't a great thing to be feeling, but it was so much better than hopelessness so Ash did not care.

Oh look! They were PRESENTING!!! "Um... this is a finger trap. You put it on your fingers, and they get trapped! There's a way to get them off tho, that I will not be disclosing." What was the fun in that? "Anybody wanna try it?" Because Ash thought it would be SO funny. There were other things Ash had found, but they weren't as amusing.

ooooh. "Hey Schmoe, do you want these glitter pens? Just in case you want to make your grading sparkly???" She looked at him hopefully. Could he grade her homework in glittery pink? Please?

oooh! And over there was a pencil sharpener. Ash put it on Schmoe's desk, because she thought he might like it. This was like a treasure hunt! It was great.

believe in yourselves | dream | try | do good | everything will be okay

If there was one thing Teddy knew to expect from his Head of House's classes, it was that things were going to be weird. Always, without fail, something about the class time was going to be quirky. This time it had been that way from the get-go, and the sixth year felt sorry for the man. If it wasn't one thing, it was another, wasn't it? Teddy felt remorse for not taking it upon himself to lead the charge of ensuring Schmoe's life was organized in every nook and cranny like he'd hoped to at the start of the term, but honestly, life was a lot for all of them. It was okay to take it one thing at a time, and Teddy did his part to help pluck alike objects from the chaos and put them near each other for now. No package of markers, but all things considered, that was the least of Schmoe's woes at this point.

Cute of him to improvise the way he was, suggesting this could be alllll part of the lesson. Teddy wore an amused half-smile as he turned his attention back to the clutter around him. Lots of gadgets, strange-looking things - hm? Something caught Teddy's eye and he picked it up curiously. He examined it only for a moment before chuckling, moving to stand near Kale as he raised his hand. "Mine is for Muggle dueling. It's got these to adjust to one's hand size, and you go like this," he explained confidently, closing his fist up inside the device's prongs and playfully jabbing the stick end toward Kale's side, stopping his hand just before he'd make contact, then only playfully poking him with it a few times. Just some lighthearted, good-natured flirting antics in the name of education.

Did Professor Schmoe plan this, closet avalanche and all? That was Dia's question, since this all seemed too 'coincidental' to be an accident. And yes, she was ignoring all the weirdness being thrown out by her classmates in favor of the bread. What was wrong with them? There was nothing wrong with eating bread. Though she did kind of wish there were pretzels too. They were sort of bread.

She picked the weird metal circle thing with holes (the potato masher). "Is this some sort of odd.....bubble wand?" she asked, holding it up in the air. She really had no idea. Though, it did look really weird for a bubble wand.....

Remy was growing to dislike the persistent attitude from the Slytherin house today. The blonde frowned at the girl (Serena) who rolled her eyes at her, but decided to be the bigger person and settled with a, "Hmpth," and a pout instead.

MERLIN. How many magic folk does it take to locate a box of markers?!

Thankfully, Professor Schmoe was moving on to the lesson, and her interest was certainly pulled towards the strange objects that were being presented. They all looked rather bizarre, and of course she was drawn to the most deadly looking thing. Remy studied it closely but being careful not to touch anything more than its handle. She was surprised the Professor had brought something so dangerous to the classroom.

"This is very sharp, Professor, it has to be some sort of weapon."

What WAS that rule breaker (Kayne) staring at? Remy was getting more and more frustrated the more she looked at him, and maybe a little scared, so she just turned to Atlas instead and whispered, "Those kids are creeping me out." Atlas would protect her, right? She had a feeling Atlas could talk himself out of any conflict.

Violet watched with interest as Ashley Fox sidled up to Upstead and, using their first name, no less, asked to have her own bread removed. Why didn't Ash do that herself, then? Surely she'd been at Hogwarts long enough. But then, watching Nem's progress across the room and back, she saw it had worked, because as Nem passed, the bread was gone. Interesting--she wouldn't have thought they'd bothered.

Violet had scooped up some objects that rolled under her chair without looking very carefully at them--she'd return them the next time she got up.

She frowned as she heard someone mention that the kitchens were closed--that disturbed her. First Healer Poppy constantly pushing bread onto everybody at every single occasion, then the weird affect said bread had on her (and other people, from what she'd noticed), and now--the kitchens were closed? This was all beginning to seem like another weird and disturbing set of events, and the last time people had ignored that sort of thing, look at what happened! Violet made a mental note to mention it to one of the professors, though she'd have to think carefully to decide which one. They probably would dismiss it as a childish fancy and ignore it until something dreadful happened, though, the way they had done before.

For now, though--might as well get through class while she thought. She scooped up the assortment of debris from Professor Schmoe's cupboard and walked up to the front of the room, returned the objects to their cabinet, and looked at the assortment of Muggle items. After the year in New York with her Muggle father, Violet actually knew what some of these were (though not all of them--what weird things!) But she decided to pick one she didn't recognize, just for a bit of fun, so she reached out and took up a particularly strange thing.

"Maybe this is a brain enhancement device to turn an ordinary person into a genius!" she said in a mock, creepy voice, holding the thing up. She chuckled and continued, "No, seriously, my guess is that this is--a scalp massager."

Tadhg was surprised that nothing bad happened to Professor Schmoe, as much stuff that came out of the closet at full blast. Although he was glad he was okay, at least he looked like it, but looks could be misleading. "Are you sure you're okay Professor?" He asked getting out of his seat helping pick stuff up. Looking at the weird finger protectors or were they some kind of bandaid for your fingers? With a look of interest he put them on his fingers before raising his hand "These are pretty cool looking, they protect your fingers when you have to do spells and stuff, image Aurors wear them from getting cramps all day in their fingers am I right Professor?"


Taking them off He set them to the side before finding some orange what looked like pencil case? that what it was called right? Looking inside it, he seen that it had pencils and pens in it but no markers for the board. Handing Lia the box giving her a soft warm smile he kept on looking, hey he was having fun.

So… no markers yet? Claudine looked around at everyone working and at the marker-less Schmoe. The man would have more markers in his office, yes? With that thought, the Snakette sifted through the junk spilled contents from the cupboard, collected a few more toy vehicles then set about organising them.

Oh.

They were going to get started with the lesson? Okay then. Claudine gingerly picked up the slicer. Um… what in the world was this used for? There was confusion written all over her face but she still raised her free hand to venture a guess. “I think this may be used for… er, shredding paper.” Yes, she’d go with that.

Had anyone found the markers yet? Heath was so absorbed in organizing the legos that he’d lost track. Hearing Schmoe’s voice, he momentarily looked up from what he was doing. So he’d take that as a no on the markers. His eyes darted around the room, scanning for more legos to organize as well as anything orange that could be the box of markers. He spied something orange sticking out from a pile of stuff, but as he neared, he saw it was only a poncho. Only moments later, he heard someone say they found the markers. So much for being the one to find them!

With the matter of the markers settled, Heath focused his full attention on the question. He looked at the gadgets scattered on the floor. Many of which he recognised, having seen similar ones in his granny’s kitchen all his life. He picked up the nearest one - a vase-shaped container with a face and ears - and smiled to himself as he examined it. “This is an egg separator,” he said after raising his hand. “As the name suggests, muggles use it in cooking to separate egg whites from the yolks. You crack an egg into the top opening. The white part drips out through holes here -” He indicated the two holes under the nose. “- while the yolk stays inside.”

Well, this was an interesting way to begin the lesson, yeah? Not that she minded helping Professor Schmoe, and at least he was making the best of the situation. Or had this been the plan all along?

And also, where had the bread gone? Hm.

Either way, they needed to identify some Muggle items. And Ivy thought it wouldn't be too hard, until she saw the actual items. She knew plenty of Muggle stuff, she'd thought, but she was pretty sure she'd never seen most of these things before. Hm...

She picked up one of the items, eyeing it as she turned it over in her hands, before raising one hand. "This thing looks a bit like a really small air vent or something like that." Not a very efficient one since it'd need to be over a really small fan, but... Oh wait!

Ivy fiddled with one side, and it opened. Oh. Ohhhhh. Close. Open. Hmmmm. "Or, actually, I guess you could stick food or something inside it here to slice it up, like...well, maybe not like bread, since those would be really thin slices, but maybe a tomato or something."

Finneas was a collector of stuff and things and often times he didn't question how he managed to fit it all into the closet because he was too busy trying to collect more. That was the reality of the situation. Alas.

As for the box of markers, Finneas offered Kayne a small nod of approval. "Er, thank you, so long as you do not use magic for the duration of class, you may have your points back." This was fair. Schmoe seemed to think as much.

"Very good, Ms. Fox! They bring about hours of entertainment," he grinned knowingly. Finneas had brought one of those to a feast once, perhaps it was that very one. Such good times. Though, er, he received many a stare from his colleagues.

But, er, as for the glitter pens? "Er, perhaps you can set those aside for now," he bobbed his head thoughtfully.

It really was something. Always. Teddy was quite right about that. Though, er, it was nice when the something could be turned into a learning opportunity. That's what this was... right? Heh.

Finneas smiled in a good-natured sort of way, tilting his head from one side to another. "That's er, that's certainly a thought, Mr. James." And who was to say that it couldn't be used for dueling? "As for it's primary use, I'd er, I'd suggest you'd try it on your head!" Tips and tricks, from yours truly.

Did that mean she was buying into his attempt at reframing the lesson? Because Schmoe would qualify that as a success! "That's, er, that is certainly an innovative angle!" But not exactly the correct one. "That is a potato masher! It comes in handy when you're in the kitchen!" But bubble wand was close. Er. Sort of.

How did that get in there!? Er. "I'll, er, I can take that and set it aside." Because the last thing he needed was someone to get hurt! "And, er, though it c-can be used as a weapon, perhaps... It's primary use is to slice pizzas!" How fun.

Looking at the weird finger protectors or were they some kind of bandaid for your fingers? With a look of interest he put them on his fingers before raising his hand "These are pretty cool looking, they protect your fingers when you have to do spells and stuff, image Aurors wear them from getting cramps all day in their fingers am I right Professor?"


Taking them off He set them to the side before finding some orange what looked like pencil case? that what it was called right? Looking inside it, he seen that it had pencils and pens in it but no markers for the board. Handing Lia the box giving her a soft warm smile he kept on looking, hey he was having fun.
Finneas bobbed his head, to affirm that he was quite fine. But it was kind of Tadgh to ask and Finneas offered him an appreciative sort of look. As for the finger protectors. Er. "Not quite, I'm afraid. But that could be a creative wizard use, perhaps! These are, er, actually used by muggles to keep cheesy foods off their fingers while they're snacking!" Cheese puffs were delicious, but very messy otherwise.

Oh.

They were going to get started with the lesson? Okay then. Claudine gingerly picked up the slicer. Um… what in the world was this used for? There was confusion written all over her face but she still raised her free hand to venture a guess. “I think this may be used for… er, shredding paper.” Yes, she’d go with that.
Finneas tried to offer an encouraging smile, despite how far off Ms. Blaze was with her answer. "I, er, I wonder if that could work... But it would likely be more successful in slicing up foods, like a pizza." Though if she wanted to try on paper, then er. He wouldn't discourage the experimentation.

So he’d take that as a no on the markers. His eyes darted around the room, scanning for more legos to organize as well as anything orange that could be the box of markers. He spied something orange sticking out from a pile of stuff, but as he neared, he saw it was only a poncho. Only moments later, he heard someone say they found the markers. So much for being the one to find them!

With the matter of the markers settled, Heath focused his full attention on the question. He looked at the gadgets scattered on the floor. Many of which he recognised, having seen similar ones in his granny’s kitchen all his life. He picked up the nearest one - a vase-shaped container with a face and ears - and smiled to himself as he examined it. “This is an egg separator,” he said after raising his hand. “As the name suggests, muggles use it in cooking to separate egg whites from the yolks. You crack an egg into the top opening. The white part drips out through holes here -” He indicated the two holes under the nose. “- while the yolk stays inside.”
Finneas was also enjoying Heath's lego tower, believe it or not. Perhaps he would invite the Ravenclaw over to help him build some later. A fun activity!

"A very fun egg separator at that!" He grinned, offering the young man a thumbs up. Great work all around.

And also, where had the bread gone? Hm.

Either way, they needed to identify some Muggle items. And Ivy thought it wouldn't be too hard, until she saw the actual items. She knew plenty of Muggle stuff, she'd thought, but she was pretty sure she'd never seen most of these things before. Hm...

She picked up one of the items, eyeing it as she turned it over in her hands, before raising one hand. "This thing looks a bit like a really small air vent or something like that." Not a very efficient one since it'd need to be over a really small fan, but... Oh wait!

Ivy fiddled with one side, and it opened. Oh. Ohhhhh. Close. Open. Hmmmm. "Or, actually, I guess you could stick food or something inside it here to slice it up, like...well, maybe not like bread, since those would be really thin slices, but maybe a tomato or something."
Annnnnnd last, but certainly not least! He called on Ms. Grimm with a kind (and awkward) grin. A Grinn, if you will. Heh. Get it? "Excellent, or ... shall I say, eggcellent! Because, er, this contraption is often used for wedging and slicing hard boiled eggs!"

OH THE PUNS.

He looked around to make sure there weren't any other hands in the air, before carrying on. "While some of these tools might seem strange to us, wizards, or er... otherwise oddly specific, they help to make tasks easier for muggle-kind! Just like, er, just like we use our magic to get around some of the everyday inconveniences of our lives, these tools have a magic of their own and, er, do quite similar things for muggles!" He paused to take a much needed breath.

"I'd like us to think of some annoying inconveniences in our lives that wizards can fix with a simple spell, but er. That a muggle might simply have to deal with. Can anyone think of any?"

OOC: hi, second question is up - what are some inconveniences in our lives that we can fix with spells, but that a muggle might simply have to deal with?

I'll be posting again in about 22-24 hours to move us along!

Dahlia really didn't mind helping clean up. In fact she was rather enjoying herself. There was something about organizing things that she found somewhat calming at times. Helping to separate the stuffies with the stuffies. Orange items went to Apollo. Cars, trains and planes all went together. Everything had a place.

Ooooh, they were moving on now? Darn. She had been enjoying herself and they still hadn't located the markers yet. As Professor Schmoe spoke about gadgets and gizmos, Lia couldn't help but find herself humming a tune very very softly under her breath to herself. Then they were told to find something and explain what they thought it was. So when she spotted a lone fork, YES a FORK lying around it sent the formerly humming twelve year old into a near fit of hysterical giggles.

Lia couldn't help but pick it up along with what looked to be a toy dinosaur with its back missing but it was actually a taco holder! The only reason she knew this was because she herself had one when she was little and now her nieces and nephews had them. Returning to her desk and sitting down with the items she raised her hand and waited to be called on. She gave only her answer about the taco holding dino and not the fork which was known as a Dinglehopper to Scuttle and Ariel in one of her favorite movies. She had been so tempted to joke about it buuuuut she wasnt sure Schmoe would like that during his lesson.

When Tadhg handed her the orange pencil case she smiled at him. Opening it she saw only pencils inside. Well they could keep looking later.

"Spilling something on our shirt," Lia replied when she was called on. "We can fix that easily but they would be stuck with a messy shirt for the day."

Kayne smiled and laughed at Ash's comment about the stuffed animal that he had thrown. Some people just didn't have as quick of a reaction time as himself apparently, but that was fine. It's not like it was a hard object that could have caused harm, or even worse...accidentally breaking something. Now that would have most likely landed him in detention.

Once again, Kayne found himself smirking as the Professor's question gave himself another opportunity to riff off of the incident that had just previously occurred. Also, he was grateful for Schmoe giving the lost points back. He nodded as a gesture of thanks, and with a hand raised, the boy stated "Well I think a prime example of that is what I tried to do." A sly smile starting to cross Kayne's face. He continued by adding "Us wizards and witches can easily attempt to find a lost object or grab one that's far away via the use of the summoning. Whereas muggles would have to go find the objects themselves, just like how we did a second ago." Even though Kayne had somewhat of an obsession with himself, the boy still wasn't afraid to joke about mistakes that he made to make light of the situations.
