Default HoM Lesson I- TBA

As you enter the History of Magic classroom, you’ll find it sort of- yeah sort of looking normal- yeah- mostly normal save for a few holes in the wall from the vines and a piece of parchment waiting on each desk.

The chalkboard at the front of the room has simple instructions on it.

Welcome. Take a seat and get your sleuthing started!

Professor Holden, himself, is standing up front, finishing his preparations by straightening a couple of the easels. His OCD tendencies were getting the better of him. Feel free to greet the Professor but he may be slightly distracted with trying to keep the covered talking paintings from talking. Right now, he’s trying to tell them what a SPOILER means! Fortunately one of the paintings is lecturing the others to be quiet especially one particular LOUD one. Who are our lesson’s visitors?


OOC: Welcome to the first History of Magic lesson in Term 60! Super excited to have you guys here. C’mon in, take a seat, aaaand have fun with the puzzle!

We’ll get started shortly (in a day) but please make sure you familiarize yourself with the rules.

Class Progression: CLASS HAS BEGUN!

Stuart was a fan of science and truth. He therefore quite enjoyed History of Magic, sure there were things that could be up for debate and interpretation, but events were things that did happen, they were facts.

He liked facts.

"Hello Professor." the Ravenclaw greeted. He then looked around to see if any of his... very limited number... of friends had empty seats nearby. When they didn't, he just chose a random seat and glanced over the parchment.

Easy.

"Hey." Since she was in a particularly good mood, she offered him a rare smile as she took a seat in the front and started doing the word search. "I like puzzle type things." This lesson was going well so far, in her opinion. She could FEEL the good vibes.

Maybe because nobody else was there yet to bother her. Or maybe not.

Ash hoped that today would be a good day.

[b”Hello, Professor Holden,”[/b] Maya greeted politely and giving a slight nod of her head as she entered the classroom.

She looked over at the chalkboard which featured incredibly straightforward instructions. Maya slid into a seat next to Ash and smiled. ”Hey Ash.” Maya’s eyes glanced over the easels, curious as to what the whispers would be before looking down at the puzzle on her desk.

Oh! A word search! Maya did enjoy those, even if they weren’t all too difficult. She immediately went to work on it. Would they be learning about other magical institutions this lesson? If so, she hoped he would describe a bit about what university and the application process was like. Just in case she wanted to get a head start.
Silence for the briefest moments followed Miss Fox’s greeting from the portraits and Simon sighed. Good. Hopefully this meant that they would all BEHAVE. Really he only had to worry about two of them… He turned around briefly to nod in Miss Fox’s direction. “Hey,” he said and then noticed the rare smile. Now that was a PLEASANT turn of events, wasn’t it? “Im glad you like puzzles. If you ever want a book of them, feel free to stop by my office…” he offered, returning her smile.

Simon turned his gaze from Ash to the eldest female Nam who was the first Slytherin to arrive. “Hello Miss Nam. Good summer?” he inquired politely, very proud to see one of his house here already.

Milo didn't sit so much as perch, like a five foot two gargoyle, made of teeth and bone and flesh and blue eyes. But, with his socked feet slipping and sliding and offering him no purchase on the wooden chair, he shifted from squatting on the seat to kneeling, feet poking out behind him as he sat back on his own legs.

With a pen he fished from his pocket, Milo focused on completing the word search, neatly filling each and every square with an immaculate block of black ink and ensuring none of the letters were visible, until he had just one big black square on the parchment. As for the words down the side, he filled in every loop and closed in space of every letter, and called it a success.

Better. History, interesting as it could be, tended to play on Milo's mind a lot more than he'd have liked at the least convenient times. What he liked better was to shore up his defences, obscure and neutralise potential threats, and anchor himself, before History dug in its talons and flew away with him.
Simon had turned his attention back to the portraits but then noticed one of the first year Ravenclaws joining them. He did take note of where in the classroom the boy chose to say and offered a warm smile in his direction. He was about to turn around when he noticed the boy was barefoot. “uh… Mr Evans … what happened to your shoes? Did a niffler run off with them?” he asked. Then again perhaps Mr Evans preferred walking around barefoot…. Interesting .

A smile that only brightened seeing papers on the desk. A pop quiz, perhaps? Cooper had done a bit of reading ahead and revision last night while TRYING in vain to get Theo interested in the topic of the 14th Century Wizarding Economic Bubble by throwing in a bit of Gobbledegook here and there (Cooper knew only a handful of words in the language which he had picked up as a kid to try and impress the goblins at Gringott's while on errand with his parents - the end results had not been favorable)...but his dormmate transcended the textbook and comforts of the bed they were sitting upon and didn't even notice Cooper not speaking English at times. Which, to be fair, they were known to do on a whim with interlacing a language or two and filling in the gaps by context clues...so he really should have known to approach the situation differently.

Oh well.

"Hello, ladies," he smiled at Ashley and Maya (aka Evan's sister) as he took a desk near the pair, the seventh year slipped his bag off his shoulder to lean beside his seat and got his things out for class. Professor Holden seemed...preoccupied with what was very obviously a gallery of portraits who had things to day...so Cooper left the man to that and instead turned his attention to the parchment before him. He remembered dad getting him a whole book of these once. How long had it been since he had sat down to just do a wordsearch? He wasn't sure, but he was soon dipping his quill into the inkwell and drawing perfectly straight lines through each word he found. He needed Mercer and his collection of colored inks, honestly. The black on black was hard to see at times. Especially when he accidentally dropped a bit on the parchment and blotted out some of the letters a bit - ironically making it so that finding 'Ravenclaw' was more difficult than it needed to have been. Grinning as he finished, Cooper flipped his paper over and set his quill down and gave the room a look over. Did anyone need help? He imagined the professor had the papers enchanted so the letters shuffled into different positions for each of them, but maybe he could still offer hints to someone who wanted a bit of assistance.

It was in his looking around that he spotted Mercer's little friend - the one with the socks and no shoes - and offered the little Claw a wave. He hadn't caught the kid's name yet, but hopefully he could start calling him something more than Mercer other friend who wasn't Mitsuki soon.

So he was here, entering the classroom quietly, forgoing any greetings, and sliding into an open seat towards the back. He wasn't feeling up to conversation, so instead of verbal greetings he simply gave nods of his head towards his peers.

Though truthfully, he tried to not make eye contact with his sister in case there was questions there.

Sitting at his desk and pulling out a highlighter, Evan stared at the crossword puzzle before him. He usually liked word puzzles, enjoyed doing them. But he was having a hard time focusing and finding the words, to the point where he found the Hogwarts house names and proceeded to give up. He'd just have to hope this was for fun and not graded.
As both Mr Branxton and Mr Nam arrived, the portraits once again became louder. There was a debate going on between the same two culprits as they discussed who was the better person. Simon had to stifle a chuckle when one of the other portraits sighed LOUDLY. He could totally tell there was an eye roll there. Turning around, he nodded to both Ravenclaws as they entered and watched them as they started the puzzle. Excellent.

Yes, Ruari looked confident, cool and even a little bored as he took the seat beside Milo Evans- Ravenclaw First Year who didn't like socks- but he wasn't bored. He was positively stoked.

This was a class he could never get enough of, especially when that history had anything to do with Harry Potter and the Second Wizards War. Ruari often revisited the legends surrounding the Boy Who Lived and his friends, sometimes he even imagined what it would have been like to live in that era- to know the Golden Trio and face off against ~evil~.

"How's it hanging, professor?" Ruari greeted, dropping his bag down and peering at the parchment with bright eyed excitement.

a crossword huh? easy peasy. He could do this with his eyes closed. Humming cheerily, Ruari began his work. The Hogwarts houses were easy enough- they were all very long- and then the founders names- Helena and Rowena equally giving him a hard time, he was unsurprised for some reason- and then there was the others. He paused when he reached them trying to recall whatever he could about Wampus and Pukwudgies before finding them amidst all the black ink letters.
After convincing the portraits to quiet down AGAIN, Simon turned around to be greeted by another Ravenclaw. Ah yes. A STUDENT WHO WAS EXCITED BY HIS CLASSES AND THE TOPIC. Hallelujah. This Ravenclaw always reminded him of his beloved Charms Professor. Well they shared a similar last name ;____; Ah yes. Good times. “Just standing, y’know?” he joked.. y’know cause the portraits weren’t hanging but standing on easels. Okay… bad dad joke. “A lame joke but can’t wait to start. I hope you’re excited! And how are you.. hanging?” Did he say that right? Was that what all the kids were saying these days? As a father of two and soon to be father of three, he needed to know the lingo….

It was taking longer to finish said novel, but that was more due to OWL studying having already begun rather than anything else.

Therefore, it was a rather animated Hufflepuff fifth year who had entered the classroom, hardly thrown by the veiled arguments coming from what obviously had to be portraits. Just as a form of amusement to herself, she tried to see if she could recognize any of the muffled voices as she settled into her seat with a smile toward the obviously distracted professor. “Hi Professor Holden,” she added, even as she applied her attention to the parchment on her desk as she hardly expected a return greeting. What with his distraction and all.

Hm, a word search. The sleuthing comment on the chalkboard made more sense now, although it didn’t take her much time to complete the puzzle in front of herself, color coding each word just for an added level of difficulty. Although it had been a bit harder to decide on colors for the non-Hogwarts related terms. Either way, her parchment had ended up rather colorful in the end, as she resorted to flicking through her textbook just for more ideas.

Rosa greeted cheerfully, but doubted that their professor heard what she said or anyone else since he appeared distracted.

Going over to where Cailyn was sitting Rosa took a seat at the adjacent desk to her friend and fellow badgerette."Hi Cailyn," she mumbled as she took out her supplies for the lesson. It didn't take long before she got started on the word search with a pink marker. The parchment looked nice and bubble pink when Rosa some minutes later had found all the words in the search puzzle.
Simon offered a smile to the next two students that greeted him. “Hello Miss Cooke. And Miss Knight. Good start to the term, I hope?” he inquired, hoping that they were finding things… manageable. As a student, he always found the start of the term both hectic and exciting.


SPOILER!!: Miss Valentine

As she got closer to the classroom, she stopped thinking about it, now she was fully prepared for whatever they were learning today. "Good Day Professor!" Summer smiled, before she went over to her desk.

Sitting down, she noticed a piece of parchment on the desk, she looked at it and sighed, seriously puzzles, she wasn't any good at them, in fact when she did them before she came to Hogwarts, she always got her mother to help, she wondered if the Professor would allow her to phone a friend.
Ah another first year now. Simon smiled at the young Miss Valentine as she offered a cheerful greeting. “Is it? A good day?” he offered back with a mischievous smirk, referencing one of his favourite wizards of all time. “It is a good day.

But it was needless to say that Aria told not a soul this. You would remember she loved keeping most of her private life on the down low.

Sharp eyes cut to the board the moment she stepped into the room. Sleuthing? Did it involve fashion? Otherwise… BORING. Not to mention… what was with the paintings? Aria eyed the loud one up and down before pressing a finger to her own lips in a shushing manner. Take your own advice, painting.

“Hello there, Professor Holden,” Aria said, finally giving the man a smile. With grace and elegance of a budding model, Ms. McLeod took up a seat beside Rosa. “Knight.” The Puff got a smile. Ah. A crossword puzzle. Nice. Aria took a pencil from her stash to begin. These clues definitely hinted at today's lesson topic.

If she worked hard and studied harder she would come out on top.

As she entered the room her bright smile didn't fade at all, not even when she didn't spot her brother or sister or any of her cousins. That was alright, she would just settle down in an empty seat until one of them arrived. "Hello Professor," Keighley waved politely before finding herself a seat and sitting down.

The instructions on the board made her glance around for a moment before her attention took a better look at the parchment on her desk. Oh! These were always fun! Pulling a bright pink quill from her bag, the twelve year began to search for the words in the puzzle.
He looked away momentarily and found two more students inside the classroom. “Hello! hello! Welcome!” he greeted. He did smile at Miss McLeod’s hushing of the portraits which worked for a good thirty seconds before the brewing mumbling began again. So Simon turned around to deal with it and then turned back right as Mr. Stover entered. He crossed his arms across his chest and raised an eyebrow at him. Hmm.. Mr. Stover definitely seemed a little hesitant or something? The Slytherin had not left a great impression on him so far this term.“Mr. Stover…. Welcome. No puking pasties, correct? Let me remind you that food or pranks are not tolerated in class.” The Slytherin should be aware of this, yes?

No real winning with this subject, the Gryffindor just had to get it over with and pray for the best.

It was safe to say she had taken her mother's threat to pull her from all dance activity if she didn't get good OWL scores very seriously.

When one was a rising star like she was, any threat to fame had to be taken seriously and handled. Later, Emm would get herself a tutor and everything. For now, she was still trying to remember that classes were not optional, no matter how close to nailing a new move she was.

Hair still tied into a tight bun from the earlier practice she had managed to slip in, Emmerson made her way into the classroom. "Hey Professor," She greeted as she finished tying her tie back into place. "Are we watching wizarding reality shows from the past?" Because she'd love to sit and do nothing while she got her heart rate back where it was supposed to be.

Moving and and smiling at the Professor. "Hello Professor ... umm... Professor yeah just Professor" Well if that wasn't embarrassing at all, she still didn't know all their names, there were so many professors to remember, and now she had just made a fool out of herself.

Taking her seat and wanted to die a little, she looked around the room, trying to avoid eye contact with anyone that may have seen her brain fart and began working on the puzzle provided.

(She also had moments of embarrassment far too often, which she needed to address.)

The Gryffindor took a seat, not near anyone in particular, not waiting for anyone either. She had every intention to concentrate on todays lesson, because it was easy to lose your track of thought in classes like History of Magic.

Remy couldn’t help but roll her eyes at the goody-goody students who always had to greet professors in such sickly ways. Professor Holden was busy talking to the paintings, clearly, so she kept herself to herself and started working on the puzzle that was provided, looking up at the other kids every now and then to make sure they weren’t finishing before her.

Easy.” Remy mumbled to herself and the empty chair beside her when she was finished, and set her quill down on the desk.
Miss Cambridge’s question earned a chuckle from the Professor. Simon was amused. “It may as well be a reality tv show with the drama two out of four of them are causing. Maybe we should vote on which one would be the last contestant?” he joked before noting that she had adjusted her tie. Hmm… He hoped she was alright. He hated seeing students frantically fixing things or running in because that meant that panic often followed…. However, it wasn’t his place to enquire so he turned to the next student that entered.

Simon would have been OFFENDED if he knew what she was thinking about History of Magic and boring being in the same sentence!! But to be fair… He also understood that sentiment as well. Fortunately he didn’t know that so when she stumbled over his name, he just waited. “Holden,” he replied with a deadpan facial expression. He was trying his hardest not to geek out at the perfect opportunity to be so cool like James Bond. “Professor Holden… Welcome.

This suave moment unfortunately was shattered by a hearty belly laugh coming from the portraits and teasing. Simon turned around and began to protest with the annoying portrait so he entirely missed Miss Gaeltheos’ entrance.

"Hello, Professor," she said, as she passed him by. She didn't really expect a reply, though. He looked super busy with whatever all that was.

She eyed the holes in the wall, wondering what had caused them, and then turned her attention to the parchment on a random desk. She took a seat and then read the instructions on the board. Sleuthing? Awesome! ... Sleuth what, though? Again, her attention turned to all that super secretive noisy stuff going on at the front of the room. Had she not been so distracted, she would have noticed the word search in front of her. Oh. OHHHH. Ahem. She was totally aware that had been there all along.

She took out a quill and some ink and started searching the page.

These types of puzzles were always enjoyable to him. He'd solve them sometimes in his spare time in the Hufflepuff Common Room. When he noticed the writing on the chalkboard, he thought he could work on the puzzle while the rest of the class entered. He took out his pen from his bag and began to solve.

Finding an empty desk, the Hufflepuff sat down and gathered everything she would need for class. It was then that she noticed the parchment on her desk. It was a word search puzzle and that put a smile on her face. Jordyn liked doing puzzles of any kind and couldn’t wait to get started on this one. In the back of her mind, she wondered what this would have to do with the lesson for today.
The commotion was still ongoing so he completely missed Miss Prescott’s greeting, Mr Yoon’s entrance, and Miss Guldry’s greeting. All greetings had been drowned out by the bickering portraits so when he finally convinced them to use INSIDE voices, he turned around to see who had joined them. To each of the students who just had walked past, he offered them a kind smile with a nod. “Apologies. Our guests are very passionate about our topic today…

It was interesting, wasn’t it? To not hate someone you did for so long.

She may have looked at Daniel a bit too long as she took her place next to Remy. “Hey,” she said simply, looking down at the word search and scoffing. “I hate word searches,” she muttered. “Wait you FINISHED already??”

Clearly they'd find out soon, so she opted not to ask or otherwise distract him. Instead she decided to slip into the seat next to Evan, who was already getting to work on the word search. Oh, these were fun! She offered a quiet "Hey Evan," and a smile before turning to hers as well. "Rowena" was the first one she circled. Nice!

She took her usual seat next to Cooper and softened her smile. "Hi... oh, what's this?" Her eye caught sight of the parchment on her desk. A word search? Oh those were fun. She glanced up at the directions on the board then back at the puzzle. She found one, then another. But when she got stuck on the next one, her eyes began to wander. Her attention was soon diverted by the vines coming through the walls. That was even more interesting. She could not quite tell which vitis species it might be from where she was sitting, but she let her mind wander as she pondered it, fingers absently twisting the ends of blonde hair.
Ah Miss Gellar entered next, soon followed by Miss Grimm, and then Miss Ashbury-Hawthorne. Student interactions were always intriguing.

Simon couldn’t help but notice a friendlier interaction between Miss Gellar and Mr Yoon. Now that was a change since one of their first lessons… He had heard all about the outburst and thus watched certain dynamics and situations like a hawk. Constant vigilance. Miss Grimm and Mr Nam seemed to be getting along nicely and he could say the same about Miss Ashbury-Hawthorne and Mr Branxton. Good. Teamwork and socialization would be necessary in their lesson today.

Whizzing through the search in a matter of minutes, Alfie's attention turned to the portraits, the one lecturing the others in particular. Magic portraits had intrigued him ever since he was a child. How exactly portraits gained sentience, that had always confused him. He should probably ask Holden that. Or was that more of a Charms question?

Fifth year had just started and she was already oversleeping for classes!

Finishing the second braid of her pink locks when she saw the classroom in sight! Practically throwing herself into the room out of breath before saying, "Good morning, I am SOOO sorry I'm la-" She stopped mid-sentence when she realized that....to her complete surprise...she was NOT late in fact, as a matter of fact, she was ON TIME. Letting out such a relieved sigh before smiling brightly, "I meannnn, Hello Professor Holden! Have a nice summer?!" With that she made her way into the classroom to claim a seat, taking note of one particular Moose, but she did not sit near him, she chose to sit elsewhere claiming a different seat. And OH look, a word puzzle!
Speaking of the opposite of team work and tension, there was an argument was brewing between two of the portraits as some of the students entered. Thankfully the coverings muffled most of it until one pretty much SHOUTED. “Jealous? Poppycock! I am NOT!!!!” Simon facepalmed in this moment and then one of the other portraits spoke up. “My fair… Gentlemen. Be reasonable.

Muffliato, he thought, casting the non-verbal and the argument became muffled and … quieter. Ahhhhhh. This was much more tolerable. He turned around to nod at Mr Demaret and then he found a flushed Miss Rivers entering and greeting him. Hmm.. her behaviour was… intriguing. She was in the same camp that Mr.Stover was in post the Entrance Hall shenanigans. “Just on time, Miss Rivers. Actually a few minutes early in fact. Long may it continue,” he offered with a nod. And to the question about his summer, he simply shrugged his shoulders nonchalantly. “It was busy. Spent some of it here and some of it at home with my children and wife. Did you have a good summer?

He was happy to see that Rivers and Stover did not sit next to each other. Good.

Easy.
Now Simon was fairly sure Mr. Knyatson was the last student to enter. “Welcome, Mr Knyatson. Good summer?” Usually the Ravenclaw was joined at the hip by the youngest Nam. He could have sworn the two were inseparable.. but perhaps he had missed the spitfire Nam’s entrance in the chaos of the portraits.

The third years had caused quite a ruckus at the Start of Term feast save for Mr. Knyatson. He had been well behaved.


Simon flicked his wand, causing the hourglass to begin to run out. Time was running out!! He kept his eyes on the students, seeing who was done with the activity. Most of them seemed to have completed it but there were a few asking for help of their peers.

A bell rang and he took a step in front of the class with hands clasped. “Alright, that is time! Ladies and gents. Hope you enjoyed the puzzle. I wanted to get us all of our brains churning after an eventful summer,” he explained. He glanced around the room, waited until he had full attention and proceeded with the very first question of their lesson.

Tell me, history detectives, what do YOU think our lesson is about today based on the word search in front of you? What theories do you have?” he asked before pausing and glancing around the classroom.

OOC: Hi! First question is up which means any IC arrivals will have IC consequences from Holden. Question ONE is: what do YOU think our lesson is about today?

Btw I LOVED seeing all the entrances and the completed word searches. I hope that was fun to do. I had fun making it

You have 1 day to answer question one before I move on the lesson

Ivy got a nod in greeting when she slid into the seat next to him, and he did attempt a small half smile though he wasn't entirely sure on it's level of success. Turning back to his crossword, he was able to locate the word Rowena as well before time was up and the lesson was officially starting. He could hear Holden ask what they thought they would be studying now, and Evan scrutinized the list for a moment.

There were the Ilvermorny houses, the Hogwarts houses, founders names. Magical schools could be a possibility, but then why only have two included? What was the difference between Hogwarts and Ilvermorny vs Beauxbatons and all the others? He was drawing a blank, so instead of opting to provide any type of answer he chose to continue to work on the puzzle provided.

Was that Slytherin he spotted?

She was so distracted today that it felt like a second before the class was starting. Either that or she had taken way longer than intended to complete the simple crossword.

Remy raised her hand because the answer was pretty obvious - or it could be a range of things. "It could possibly be about the differences between houses and their founders..." Just to give a different answer to the eager first year. Remy was always keen to learn more about Gryffindor, in particular.

He was already looking up when Ivy walked in and he offered he a little smile, though she may have missed it with all the hustle and bustle going on in the classroom...especially in the front of the room with the portraits. Cooper was trying not to give all that all that much attention since portraits tended to just regurgitate what they overheard and were rather unreliable narrators in his opinion. Also most likely one of the sources of the Hogwarts gossip mill he assumed, which was not something he was all that fond of.

His attention was easily drawn to Celyn when she entered and he shifted a bit of his parchment around and pushed one towards her so it settled on the tablespace between the two of them. Her attention on the vines, he gave her a bit of a nudge with his elbow to get her attention back this way. "I added to it," he murmured, his head nodding to their 'to-do' list. Below his additions of 'have tea with Helena of Ravenclaw' and 'brave a bag of Pepper Imps together' was hers of swimming with the merpeople in the Black Lake and a newer addition of attempting underwater photography in the Black Lake. He had also added holding a grindylow and shaking all eight tentacles with Bartholomew Henry.

He would just leave that for her to glance at when she could...since Professor Holden was beginning class. The question was straightforward enough, and the seventh year found himself glancing down at the wordsearch in front of him and then the covered portraits behind the professor. Well, if all of these were meant to be connected...then it begged the conclusion that a couple of the bickering portraits were those of the Hogwarts founders.

"I'd like to combine Miss Raines and Miss Gaeltheos' answers," he said once it was his turn to speak. "Wizarding schools and their founders, seeing as each founder of the the two schools with expanded representation in the word search...Hogwarts and Ilvermorny...were also the pioneers of the four house system in each school." Though their word search lacked Helga Hufflepuff representation and had doubled up on Ravenclaw.

Color Dia unimpressed. The word search seemed pretty heavily biased towards Hogwarts and that American school and Durmstrang only got one lousy mention?! She knew her former school was very secretive when it came to details, but dang! "Well, it's very obviously about magical schools.....but there are more than just Hogwarts and Illver-how the heck do you even pronounce that one anyway?" She wasn't trying to be snarky or mean. She was just putting the information out there. But, yeah, this class was definitely something to do with magic schools.

Also, were those the portraits of the Hogwarts founders under those curtains?

SUMMER FOREVER

Valentina took a lot more time to complete the puzzle than necessary - she was also feeling a little annoyed that the professor started the class with a crossword in the first place but ANYWAY. The fifth year started to doodle as the professor posed the first question. Well.. it’s obvious, isn’t it?

“Like everyone said, it’s going to be about all the magical schools.” She was actually keen to learn more about the other wizarding schools.

"McLeod," Rosa greeted back with a bright smile and a sideways glance to the snake girl that took up the desk beside her. The word search that Aria got started on and Rosa had just completed hinted at the lesson's topic. Naturally Professor Holden of course asked what topic theories they had gathered from the word search.

When it was her turn Rosa raised her hand and answered in a slow, but clear voice. "I think the lesson will be about Hogwarts and Ilvermorny like many of my peers have said before me. I also think we are going to look at both schools to see differences and similarities perhaps between both houses and their founders." It was going to be interesting to learn more about their american counterpart. Ilvermorney students lived in a castle too, similar to Hogwarts right?

Summer was still thinking about how cool the Professor was as she struggled with her puzzle, she was only halfway through it when he said time and she smiled, now that was awesome at least she got half done right. She put down her quill and turn her full attention to him.

She then heard what he ask and her heart sunk a little, she raised her hand. "Professor, are we doing quizes based on the History of Magic, because if we are can I ask the audience at some stage, I'm hopeless with quizzes." Summer sighed, seriously she got nervous and very fidgetty.

Well, she had completely finished the puzzle, but from what she could deduce from what she did had finished it seemed like things were going in the direction of wizarding schools.

"Wizarding schools, and their houses, I think anyway" Maxine said kind of indicating that her puzzle wasn't completely finished, hopefully that didn't cost her any points, she did try. "Are there portraits of the founders under there?" Maxine asked motioning toward the covered pictures.

Jordyn searched for the words in her puzzle and in no time she had found them all. Mission accomplished. ”Well that was fun”, she said softly to herself. She shifted her thoughts to what this all had to do with their lesson, that and what the noisy portraits were all about.

Before she could think too long, the professor asked a question. He must have read her mind. Jordyn raised her hand and waited patiently for her turn to speak. In the meantime, she listened to her classmates as they gave their thoughts. When she was finally called on, Jordyn added her two cents to the conversation,

“I agree that the topic for today has to do with Hogwarts and Ilvermorny. But…….I think it specifically has to do with the houses, how they cane to be. How they are alike and different. Maybe what the different qualities associated with each house are.”

There.

Aria struck out the final word on the list. The crossword had been completed in no time. It had been a while since she had done one of these and she quite forgot how soothing they could be. Thank you, Professor Eye Candy! Since she was done now, Aria sat up straight, ensuring her posture was proper. It did no one any good to slouch.

Ms. McLeod raised a hand, her pencil still held in it. “Today’s lesson may have to do with the Founding of Hogwarts and Ilvermorny. Perhaps we’ll even compare and contrast the traits of the Houses for each School.”

you wanna fite? | 💚 nickleback 💚 | Uh, anyway.

His name would remind the professor of the Charms professor because it was in fact, the same name. Fuller-thompson for his grandfathers. Sometimes he liked to brag that he was Hogwarts royalty, but when professors heard his grandfathers were the greatest Charms professor and CoMC professor ever they started expecting more from him.

he wasn’t a nerd.
and he didn’t like the idea of ben f expected to be one either.

“no, it’s how’s it hanging, professor. not how are you hanging.Grinning big, the second year could not wait to relate this story to everyone and anyone that would listen. Professor Holden had said how are you hanging.

Biting his lip, Ruari tried not to laugh aloud and instead focused on the crossword- which he had finished up- and tried to picture something wildly unfunny.

but not sad either.
or anything that would make him angry.
or anything that would make him hungry because dinner was so far away.
calming. lakes were calming. swimming pools. rivers. waterfall-

and now he needed the loo.

bugger it all.

Ruari wriggled a bit in his seat, crossing one leg casually over the other. He could hold it. At least until Holden was done with his greetings. he could totally hold it.

No reason to interrupt and make it all weird.

He was thinking about chocolate. He was thinking about Hogwarts. He was thinking about laundry- no, not laundry-

Finally the class was fully present and Ruari could not wait a second longer, as soon as the first question was asked, he raised up his hand and said “Professor, can I be excused? Er. it’s important. yknow?” It was very important. extremely important. IMPORTANT. not waiting for approval, Ruari rushed to the door and let himself out but not before adding “Is about Inter school relations? is it about the first wizards war? Hogwarts and Ilvermorny are British and American and A lot of the first war’s biggest moments happened in england and america.” OKAY OKAY, HE WAS REALLY GONE NOW. “BE RIGHT BACK.” he shouted before zooming to the nearest bathroom.

Delilah had just found the last word she'd been looking for, which oddly enough was Hogwarts, when the sound of a bell ringing grabbed her attention. The first year put away her quill and diverted all her attention to the front of the room. Which, by the way, had been kind of hard to ignore seeing as there was such a big commotion going on up there.

Delilah raised her hand, even though everybody else had pretty much already said what she'd been thinking. "I agree with what everybody else is saying. I think it's about magical schools, the founders, and all the different houses," she said. She kind of figured there was more to it than just that, but there it was...her best guess.

A Poop * k8 *

Stevie was here! V saw him as soon as he entered because there was no way in Circe’s Hell that she was doing more work than she needed to, and if this word-search wasn’t being graded, she wasn’t doing it!!! She waved at her friend and gave him a nod.

She didn’t, in fact, want to copy Remy’s, either, because that was also WORK. So V watched allllll the interesting interactions until Professor Holden officially started the lesson. How would she know? Was there a reason she should know? Glancing down at Remy’s word-search, she realized why everyone ELSE seemed to know. It was all about magical schools. “You’re smart,” she whispered as she nudged Remy’s shoulder. There was a reason she, Lisa, Remy, Serena, and Ollie had all formed a study group….because they were all smarter than V, and she greaaaaatly needed their help.

UGH.

She prepared herself mentally for a BORING lesson. SCHOOL was boring, so learning about schools would be just that - BORING. That seventh year [Cooper] who used a lot of big words made V’s eyes widen because what in Merlin’s name was he talking about? Her eyes flickered to the wall for a clock - maybe, if there was one - because was it too early in the lesson to ask to the loo? She needed a walk already. Focus was hard ALREADY.

DARN. That second year [Ruari] beat her to asking to use the bathroom, and so now she had to wait because TWO people asking to use the bathroom would be too much -___-

Ugh.

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

He became aware of Alfie's presence as he sat next to him. Giving the Slytherin a quick nod of his head before he returned to the puzzle before him. He had completely missed V's wave though. Or had that been on purpose? Who knows.

Daniel turned away from the puzzle after solving it and looked toward the front of the class, where the portraits behind the curtains were. He had to agree with the other students that today's topic would almost certainly be about the Houses of the magical schools.

He didn't say anything, instead he leaned his cheek in the palm of his hand while he picked up a pen. He twirled it between his fingers, and only dropped it twice on the desk. Which was an improvement if he had to say so himself. He didn't see the point in repeating answers that were already given by some of the other students nor did he feel like adding to someone.

Niffler? That didn't make sense at all. "Squid," Milo said to Mr Holden. No further explanation was forthcoming. The voices from the covered easels were filling the space plenty, and the world was becoming misaligned, so his long-gone shoes were bumped far down the list of priorities.

The more the room filled up, the twitchier he got, no matter how far he let his gaze and attention wander. He rolled his knuckles as though moving an invisible coin, and blinked hard. Saw the wave from Kin of Mercer, blinked again, and did not wave back. Nor to the individual who sat beside him, nor to the moose who took the seat behind.

The moose who might appreciate the discovery that Milo's feet did not smell, at least not in the way a foot might smell after being recently released from shoe prison and kept on sock parole. It was an accidental benefit of forgoing shoes, and the trade off for having filthy socks, being that the ground itself was always so filthy.

Mr Holden's voice drew Milo back, though only partway. Milo was not a history detective. Nor a lady. Nor a gent. It was as good an excuse as any to stop listening, to kneel-shuffle around on his chair and get a good look at the others in the room - though looking away as quickly as anyone looked back at him. One word had pierced the veil.

"I have a theory," Milo stated, eyes landing on the one who kept dropping his pen (Daniel). He watched it drop a second time, kept his eyes riveted to it, and abandoned whatever follow-up remark he had been about to make, had he actually been about to make one. With his own pen, he tapped his desk. Tap tap tap... Tap... Tap...tap...tap... Tap tap...tap...TAP.

Professor Holden was a cool guy, it wasn't his fault that he got stuck teaching the worst class. In fact, Jasper felt bad for the dude. He must've lost a bet because that was the only explanation. So when it came to lessons, Jas always tried to pay attention for as long as he could.

And unfortunately ... that never ended up being all that long anyway. Today it happened to last a good five seconds before he saw the parchment on his desk. And rather than work on the word search, Jasper began folding a paper airplane. As one does. When he was looking around the room for someone to fly it over to, his eyes landed on the back of Valentina's head.

And that's where they stayed for the next five minutes. She had a nice head. So symmetrical.

So when it was time to answer the first question, Jasper Amir Botros was, officially, checked out. And checking someone out too, for that matter.

"Whatever Val said, sounds good to me, Prof," he chimed in with a charming smile, leaning back in his desk.

Alfie was there, sitting next to his friend and dormmate Daniel. (Hi Daniel!) He had been studiously trying to find all the words in the word search but wasn't doing a very good job at it. He had only managed to find a few words before the lesson was starting and he looked up at Professor Holden. What did he think the lesson was about? Hmmm. Other people were giving some very good answers. A lot of the words in the word search had been about Hogwarts. The others had been about... Ilvermorny, that was it. That was one of the words. Alfie vaguely recognized it as the name of a wizarding school in America, but he knew very little about it. Some people were guessing that the lesson would be about magical schools, but the word search had been specifically about those two so there must be some reason for that. He raised his hand. "I think we might be looking at similarities and differences between Hogwarts and Il... Ilvermoney." Or whatever it was.

It was just then that the door would open, and a very little Hufflepuff would poke his head into the room. "E-xcuse me...? Is this History of Magic...?"

The small boy wandered in, hugging his ever-present teddy bear Wally to his chest. YES Aiden had brought his teddy to class. Of COURSE he had, where else would he be?

Aiden stood in the doorway, looking up nervously towards the Professor. He was a first year and he'd been just totally lost. He THOUGHT this was the right place now. But when he saw everybody in their chairs he realized that maybe he was late. He wasn't supposed to be late.

Aiden gulped. He turned his head. Then he was distracted staring at the other children. He'd never seen so many kids in one class before. Being taught at home was a whole lot different.

Then he looked back at the professor nervously.

History of Magic wasn't too terrible of a subject, but Apollo was ninety percent sure that anyone with some degree of magical background should be able to test of this subject since it seemed far too redundant for his liking. Like, no offense, Professor Holden, but he'd been hearing wizarding stories since he was a toddler.

Taking one of the word-searches, the fourth year carefully circled each word, a couple minutes later setting his quill down. Easy-peasy, really. See ... he really ought to talk to the headmaster about testing out of this subject and taking something more useful. Like a double flying.

Oh, what was the lesson going to be on? "Chocolate frogs, Professor. Well, more specifically the cards within the chocolate frogs. Cause well, a lot of the words were actually names of important wizards who have a card. Speaking of which, anyone have and Isolt Sayre card? I've been looking for ages. I'll trade." Okay, so maybe his peers were right in the lesson being about houses and schools, but that answer was said already and why not suggest something different.

Maya smiled at Cooper when he took a seat by her and Ash. She wasn't too familiar with the 7th year but what she did know was that he was rather good looking and talented. But this was class and not time to stare at attractive classmates. She worked diligently on her puzzle, not that it took too long for her to complete it. Once she did, her eyes wandered over to the door and caught Evan's arrival. She frowned slightly at the sight of him. He looked... off. And she had noticed that he had been absent from more than one class.

But he hadn't said anything to her?

She bit on her lower lip, wondering if it was worth bringing up but more students had entered and before she knew it the bell had rung, indicating that class was now in session. How extremely muggle.

At Professor Holden's first question, it seemed as though everyone had an answer. A bit distracted as she kept looking back over at her brother, she drew a blank. Merlin, he looked awful. And so she kept quiet, opting to take note of what everyone else said while glancing back.

Mercer was still scribbling away at his word search, looking for words that weren't actually given as clues. He hoped to find his name. Or someone in his family. That always happened when he and his granddad did puzzles together. Mercer or Doyle always showed up as a clue. Or maybe granddad did that on purpose?

He figured everyone else had the right idea, anyway, so he kept his head down and kept scribbling away until Milo spoke up. "HEY. MILO HAS A THEORY." Mercer was the best hypeman in the world, fyi.

Lily had almost gotten there she had found ALL of the words save for one and that was it. She had lost her motivation and had given up. Where were the foxes – gone. They had gone back into the den and it had collapsed all over them – there were no more foxes to give.

So there was sitting there waiting for class to really begin when it did. When the Professor called them history detectives. Please, that was sooooo lame – right? It was lame. Still she wasn’t going to say that outloud it was rude.

And no, she hadn’t really enjoyed the questions. Raising her hand she just waited. Her arm HURT from waiting. ”I think that Apollo kid is right, we’re going to cover Isolt Sawyer ... who i think was related to the Gaunt family and therefore likely a decedent of Salazar Slytherin.” what? a girl liked to read.
