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!

Default Question for Portrait C

Violet nodded and replied, "Thank you," before she stepped aside to move on down the line. She wasn't so pleased with her opening question, though--that answer could almost fit any founder.

But as she was about to move on, she heard the portraits erupt with laughter at Milo's cheeky gambit, and she could swear that Portrait D had a deep voice. So that meant her first guess, Helga Hufflepuff, wasn't correct--it must either be Slytherin or Gryffindor. Violet was inclined to think it the latter.

Moving on to Portrait C, her next question was: "If you were in a situation which was boring and didn't utilize your abilities, but which offered security, would you stay there or would you leave?"

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

!!! They got to talk to the founders!!! And, like... do work or whatever. What Ash was hearing was that they got to talk to the founders!!! She didn't do much questioning herself, because she figured the portraits would be annoyed by questions like "what is your name" or "how did you die". Instead, she used other people's questions to figure it out. Once she was reasonably sure that she knew who Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw were, she walked towards Ravenclaw(?). "Do you think the ocean is cool?"

Tell Them I'm Trapped in an Oil Painting

SPOILER!!: A
She loved the question that Salem-Rain asked. Worded so interestingly. “An object that you can wear.

Creativity in the sense of creating solutions that we have not seen before. Innovative solutions to better Hogwarts,” spike Portrait A to Desiree. It was a topic near and dear to her heart. Now…To Delilah, Portrait A replied. “No goblin crafted items like a sword but I do have a diadem.

Portrait A smiled back as they received a repeated question. “Not a problem, not a problem.” If the student could see her, she was waving her hand to dismiss the issue. “I value creative and intelligence.

The last question Portrait A received (from Ash) was whether or not the ocean was cool. “Its cooler in temperature generally compared to the temperature of air.


SPOILER!!: B
He didn’t wish to answer Rosa’s first question but gave in. “I’d tell a Professor and then save myself… I feel as if the options you have are pressuring me to choose one or the other. Psh! Narrow minded… I’d choose the option that protects myself and gives me the most gain.

To Celyn, he smirked. “My Chamber. Filled with Secrets. It is.” And basilisk too.

His best subject? That’s what Valentina wanted to know? “Wandlore.” His other best subject were the Dark Arts but he knew if he mentioned that then they surely would know who he was! The next question was similar to the first one. Hmm… She wanted to be in his house? Portrait B was touched by Delilah’s surprising words. “Of course anyone who’s worth their metal… wants to be a Slytherin.

Portrait B scowled at Jasper’s comment. These students didn’t understand the importance of his mission. “Blood status always matters. The reputation of our fine establishment is on the line. We are an educational facility, not a barn!


SPOILER!!: C

This portrait did react to V’s outburst. “Aww how sweet! Who’s Val?” she replied to V’s statement.

Nice to meet you Mercer and beautiful Celyn.” The boy was too adorable with his introduction of his friend. She now received TWO pizza questions. “I like something sweet…. Like pineapple.” She liked things that were different and people of different backgrounds. It made her house strong. To the other voice (Cooper) that questioned her. “I like all types of crust but it depends what I’m in the mood for…

Portrait C’s last question was focused on stability. It was a good, serious question that Violet asked. “I’d stay if it were able to provide me and my family stability.


SPOILER!!: D
The chicken! No, no. Poppycock! It’s the egg. No that’s not right either. Does it matter truly?” he returned the question to Evan Nam. It was a trick question, wasn’t it?

Portrait D gave another hearty laugh at Aria’s comment. “HA! Lions always win. I laugh in the direction of Slytherin if he thinks Snakes can best us Lions.” He hoped he had answered her sufficiently. “Neither. I’m an all day person. Ready whenever people need me!” said he, replying to Ivy’s question.

While the question (Summer Valentine’s question) was addressed to the whole group, it was Portrait D who spoke up. “I… what type of love?” Clarification was needed. Familial love was different from other loves.

Portrait D loved the question that Rosa asked. “Charms! Or dueling if that were a class.” The dweller paused for the briefest seconds before the answer appeared in their mind. “The Great Hall. It’s perfect for meeting up with friends.

He was keeping an eye on the students and portraits… Things seemed to be alright. Slytherin seemed to be… Slytherin. Hufflepuff was eager and jovial. Ravenclaw was well-worded and poised. Gryffindor was LOUD! There were a few interesting interactions (yes V, Jasper, and Valentina) and some adorable moments of teamwork (Mercer, Branxton, and Celyn). And there was some excellent sleuthing (so many students to name!!!)

Simon was so proud. “Alright!

Time’s up! Who’s who?



OOC: Hi folks! Good questions. Quick change of plans… Reveal your guesses on who’s who! Then we’ll move into the main activity. You got 12-14 hours!

SCREEEEEEEECH.

What?! Did Portrait A just say she has a diadem?! Well, technically, she HAD a diadem, but that was beside the point... Delilah looked down at her notes, where she had very clearly declared Rowena Ravenclaw to be Portrait D. "Are you sure?" she asked Portrait A, not really meaning to ask that out loud. "I mean, I apologize. It's just...I had you pinned for Portrait D, and you're not Portrait D, you're Portrait A!"

This was really frying her brain!

Thank Merlin the professor stopped them, because Delilah was fresh out of questions that she thought would help her. She looked down at her parchment and frowned.

Delilah's Thoughts
A. Godric Gryffindor OR Helga Hufflepuff Rowena Ravenclaw
B. Salazar Slytherin
C. Godric Gryffindor
D. Helga Hufflepuff Rowena Ravenclaw Helga Hufflepuff


Anyway...she raised her hand. "Portrait B is definitely Salazar Slytherin. He, umm...." She paused. Now she was a little uncomfortable talking about the whole blood status thing in front of the entire class. How could she say this, hmm? "Let's just say he's a bit selective to certain types of students."

The answer from D almost got a smile from the Ravenclaw, as he thanked the portrait for his time. They were revealing whom they thought was whom? It'd been pretty straightforward. Evan jotted down his answers on a slip of paper, opting to let the others all answer verbally. If Professor Holden wanted his paper later, he'd be happy to provide it.

Once he'd scrawled out the responses, he pushed it towards the front of his desk as he listened to his peers deductions.

SPOILER!!: Evan's answers
A: Rowena Ravenclaw
B: Salazar Slytherin
C: Helga Hufflepuff
D: Godric Gryffindor

Valentina blinked at Jasper, trying to formulate a response - because this was so unexpected!!! She wasn't prepared for this!! She had assumed it was only a little crush and that he'd never actually ask her out. But. The blonde turned to look at Victoria who seemed visibly shocked?? LOL. This was just.. yeah. "We'll talk about it later." She finally whispered, her gaze shifting towards jasper again. "Okay??" ... and the portrait's response, once again, was just so annoying. Why did her blood status even matter?? Or anyone else's? But, she bit her lip from saying something rude. UGH.

... Portrait B was obviously Salazar Slytherin - to the best of her knowledge at least but she chose to remain quiet, still feeling a little irritated.

doesn't proofread tweets | #wrongaboutcereal | #siriusly? | emo to the extremo

When V loudly exclaimed her shock, he turned to her casually, "I'll take you on a date too if you want, V." He meant it tbh. "We'd have fun." He didn't see why it was such a huge deal or why she was giving him that look? Since when did girls become so complicated?

But lol.

..........

"We'll talk about it later" meant no. It left no room for interpretation. Jas hadn't even considered that rejection was an option, he was so used to getting everything he wanted. Always. So yeah, Val's reply was a blow to his ego, but he kept an easy smile in place. "Sure."

Cool, so that sucked.

But he had to shoot his shot and at the end of the day it wasn't a big deal. Especially if he played it off, which is what he was doing now. So all in all, he was pretty glad that Professor Holden called an end to the activity right then. Picking up on one Gryffindor's [Delilah's] answer about Portrait B, he thought to chime in - "He's a total buzzkill." Dude pretty much insulted Val twice.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Um, that wasn't what she meant... that one was definitely Ravenclaw. "It's because of specific heat capacity. Dry land heats up and cools down faster than water, which has a more stable temperature," Ash whispered before slipping back to her seat.

She wrote her answers in sparkly glitter pen, just for fun.

SPOILER!!: Ash's answers

A. Rowena Ravenclaw (knew about the ocean being cool!)
B. Salazar Slytherin (here she wrote a lot of rude words and had to magically erase them)
C. Hufflepuff
D. obviously Gryffindor.


Choosing not to remark about portrait B(because she didn't want to start screaming), she settled on talking about portrait A. "I think portrait A is Ravenclaw because I asked if the the ocean was cool and the portrait answered with information about temperature and stuff." All the information she needed really.

Ash thought that Rowena Ravenclaw and Evan should be friends. Also she thought that (Salazar) Slytherin sucked. She didn't mind Hufflepuff(the person) and Gryffindor(the person). She entertained herself by doodling Rowena Ravenclaw's diadem in the margins.

Lovely!

Aria had her answers. She beamed and thanked the last portrait heartily. Then she skipped off to her seat. See? She hadn’t even needed to interrogate all of the portraits. The process of elimination worked well. Back at her seat, Aria stared around at everyone. Had she missed something? Did professor Eye Candy explicitly say they needed to write their answers down? Ms. McLeod shrugged and raised her hand.

“Portrait A is Ravenclaw, B is Slytherin, C - Hufflepuff and D - Gryffindor.” No beating around the bush for her. Even some of her classmates had deduced correctly.

Writing down her answers.

Maxine felt pretty confident in her choices!

From soup (Ravenclaw) to pet (Slytherin) and now pizza (Hufflepuff), Cooper was rather impressed by Mercer's tactics by the end of the whole ordeal and it was a bit of a breath of fresh air in not taking things at such face value and so seriously. Honestly, it was just the round about nonsensical way of thinking that he also admired in Theo. Which was further evidence of something else but more on that another time.

"Well...guess who know who D is by process of elimination," he chuckled quietly to Celyn while jotting that down on his piece of paper as the professor called the time. Which was a bit of a bummer because he was quite keen to hear what Mercer would have come up with next.

Also...was that spirited Hufflepuff boy really asking Kinsay's friend out in the middle of class? Cooper Branxton could never be so...so something. It was endearing, in its own way, but he also was pretty sure Jasper was a third year (or second?) and Valentina was a fifth year...and that age gap just reminded him of himself and Kinsay and then Mamie confessing her crush and how awkward that whole experience had been. Not just awkward but...humbling and also a bit heart wrenching. He really had not enjoyed hurting Mamie like that, who he did adore and cherish the same way he did Kinsay and Nerina. Like little pseudo sisters. But he was getting distracted from the task at hand, finishing his notes, and now had a big black ink spot to his parchment while he had been off in his own thoughts.

"Mercer, you go ahead and share our findings. It was most of your detective work anyway." Cooper had just been along for the ride really. Cooper DID offer his parchment, because his little brother had taken no notes, as a reference should he need.

Summer looked at the Portrait as it spoke. "DUH, you know, love, love, the one where when you kiss the guy, your foot lifts up, like they do in the film." Summer didn't care if the Professor heard her, she though sighed when the Professor said it was time.

"Professor, you need to teach love to the portraits, because they don't seem to know." Summer then quickly jotted down her answers.


A: Rowena Ravenclaw
B: Gyrffindor?
C: Helga Hufflepuff
D: Slytherin ?

Well Slytherin didn't know the meaning of the word love right, so that one had to be number four.

He chuckled at Delilah’s explanation and then Jasper’s add on about Portrait B. “Yeah, he’s certainly an acquired taste…” he offered with a smile. He then turned back to the class and eagerly listened to those who offered their opinions on the portraits. The students that remained silent earned a nod and smile. Alright. The group was ready.

And with a flick of his wand, he revealed the four portraits of the Hogwarts Founders. From A to D, they were Rowena Ravenclaw, Salazar Slytherin, Helga Hufflepuff, and Godric Gryffindor. “Excellent guesses, History Detectives! Congratulations to those who guessed correctly. If you didn’t, no worries. It’s all learning. There will be more activities like this in future classes.” Ah! And before moving on, he ought to thank their gracious guests. “And thanks to our guests for appearing and hearing our questions.

Clap. Clap. Clap.

The lesson must continue, onwards we go!

Simon addressed the class. “We’ve met the Founders of Hogwarts and we know the Founders’ reasons for starting Hogwarts from your assigned reading…” He paced a little as he spoke before standing and delivering his request. “Now I’d like you to put yourselves in their shoes. How would you create a Wizarding School? Please break up into groups of three and four to develop your ideal Wizarding Schools.

What would your school motto be? What are the three to four houses and what would the ideal quality of students be in each house? Please draw upon our Wizarding Schools for reference. More Wizarding schools are detailed in your textbook. You may use this for inspiration if need be. I will give you thirty minutes to brainstorm and then thirty minutes to collaborate and prepare a presentation. When an hour is up, I will ask you to present your Wizarding School to the class.

And with that, the timer was set!


SPOILER!!: OOC instructions!
OOC:Feel free to continue guessing in your post if I’ve posted before you character got to share their guesses. I’m going to move us along to the Main Activity.

You have four days to complete this before I’ll move the lesson on.

You heard Simon, it’s time to create and design your ideal Wizarding School. Please form groups of three to four and develop your Wizarding School. This includes name, location, motto, and houses. Each Rper will be one of the founders and heads of houses. At the end of the time, you will need to present your Wizarding School to the rest of the class.

To receive full points you must show your character brainstorming, discussing, and presenting. This can be in separate posts or all together in one! I DO ENCOURAGE collaboration and group RPS- makes the lesson super entertaining It’s been so much fun watching your characters in this lesson!

Yes. Congrats to her.

Aria beamed radiantly. Look at that. She had listed each of the portraits correctly. Her shrewd skills were because of Aunty Mae and Uncle Deacon. She thanked them silently. And what was this? They were allowed to create their own magical School? EXCELLENT! All Aria required now was a group. More than the brainstorming, Ari was eager to do the presentation. That meant that the spotlight would be on her! EXCITING!

“Soooo, who are the lucky two or three of you that would like to work with me?” Ms. McLeod asked the class in general. Once again, there was a beam of a thousand suns on her face.

V did not really care anymore about who each of the portraits were. WHO was Valentina, the portrait asked?! Well V would be giving both HER AND JASPER the cold shoulder from here on out until she sorted out what to do about this exactly.

IURHGIUREHGIRHGWIRUHGRIGH

JASPER BOTROS. Victoria audibly and visibly gasped, her hand on her heart. “I would NEVER go on a date with you. It’s against my code of ETHICS,” she spat at him, feeling so utterly shocked and devastated on behalf of Lisa that she probably looked like she had just witnessed a murder!

Blah blah blah, all the portraits were revealed. COOL. WHATEVER. She was busy GLARING at Jasper Botros. BUSY. She did NOT want to discuss. She wanted to BROOD and POUT. Maybe if Serena or Daniel wanted to discusss…or either of the Aflie’s. But not one Jasper Botros OR Valentina.

Violet hadn't quite managed to question all four portraits before time was called, but she had managed to learn something useful of each by lurking in the background and listening to the answers to the questioners before her (after all, what was the point of being a Slytherin if you couldn't eavesdrop a bit if you needed to?) A couple of portraits she was dead sure about, and she felt confident making an educated guess about the others, so she was ready to submit her answers when it was time.

Text Cut: Violet's portrait guesses

Portrait A: Rowena Ravenclaw
Portrait B: Salazar Slytherin
Portrait C: Helga Hufflepuff
Portrait D: Godric Gryffindor


There, that's done. But then--what's that? Another 'break into small groups' exercise. Violet sighed deeply, but inwardly, so no one could hear. She loathed having to form partners and groups in classes, but she'd learned that the best way was just to come forth and grab someone.

She spotted a fellow Slytherin, only a few years behind her, looking for partners and walked over to propose herself, glad for the opportunity to work with a fellow snake for a change. She'd been doing better getting to know people, but sometimes those other Houses could be exhausting.

"Aria? Did I hear you were looking for a partner?"

Mercer took the parchment from Cooper with a nod, agreeing that he SHOULD write down some of his answers. And then he used the parchment to draw a cartoon of himself as a portrait, wearing a little neck ruffle and eating pizza. Same thing as what was asked, right?

"Oh, we're doing a SCHOOL of our own!" He showed his sketch to Celyn because she would appreciate the fashion statement. "Will you be my group? We can call it... Celoopcer. Or Merlyn Coo. Or Branxburry!" He was good at naming things, clearly. He should tell Milo. "And we can each have a house we design, and we can name it ourselves. What is our motto?"

Default anyone want to claim a Cailyn? (also, portrait guess catchup)
Shoe!Girl │ Rebel Ravie │ Confundus Queen │ RP Addict

The questioning of the portraits had finished, and Cailyn had been rather certain of her guesses even without having done a lot of questioning. In fact, she’d probably spent more time jotting down the appropriate section of the Sorting Hat song rather than actually doing more questioning than the one question she had gotten in. The answer had been telling enough, after all, and she added her guesses to the page below the song quote as the lesson had continued. Plus, she had let herself wonder if these were the same portraits that had gotten brought to life several terms ago. Reading actually did help some of the time, after all.
SPOILER!!: Cailyn’s notes
“Bold Gryffindor from wild moor
Fair Ravenclaw from glen
Sweet Hufflepuff from valley broad
Shrewd Slytherin from fen”
Portrait A: Rowena Ravenclaw
Portrait B: Salazar Slytherin
Portrait C: Helga Hufflepuff
Portrait D: Godric Gryffindor


But then they’d been released to actually recreate the founding, so to speak, and she’d maybe spent a moment too long considering the questions they’d been posed. Partner work was never something she minded, although there was a part of her that had wished her brother had been in class. Twin abilities and all, but she could manage one class. Besides, she was the history nerd of the two of them, so after that brief moment she’d lifted a hand to shift her mass of hair over her shoulder to look around for any groups that still needed another member.

JASPER BOTROS. Victoria audibly and visibly gasped, her hand on her heart. “I would NEVER go on a date with you. It’s against my code of ETHICS,” she spat at him, feeling so utterly shocked and devastated on behalf of Lisa that she probably looked like she had just witnessed a murder!

Blah blah blah, all the portraits were revealed. COOL. WHATEVER. She was busy GLARING at Jasper Botros. BUSY. She did NOT want to discuss. She wanted to BROOD and POUT. Maybe if Serena or Daniel wanted to discusss…or either of the Aflie’s. But not one Jasper Botros OR Valentina.

................

Jasper Amir Botros was 0 for 2 today.

He was a cool quidditch player - shouldn't girls WANT to go on dates with him? Was the thought of going on a date with him really that bad? Huge blow to his ego. Absolutely massive. "... Ouch, V," he ruffled his hair, feeling super awkward now. A feeling he was (a) not used to and (b) not comfortable with.

He didn't usually let small things get to him, but the way V was lookin at him was rough. Yet again, he tried to play it off the best he could. "I've gotta focus on quidditch training anyway so."

What were they supposed to be doing again?

Simon had been waiting to intervene but every moment that he had tried to.. well.. someone else had something more to add. “Mr. Botros and Miss Gellar… what is this topic you are speaking about? If it’s not pertinent to the lesson. Please hold all remarks till later into the classes, can you?” While the dramatics we’re entertaining, he was worried about how distracted the other students would become…

Please join a group and start creating your Wizarding school.

Valentina did raise her eyebrows at Victoria's response - she seemed so hot and bothered for some reason. Maybe she was jealous of jasper asking her out.. WAIT. Did that mean she liked him?? How interesting. But, anyway. Moving on. Running a hand through her hair absently, she turned to listen to the professor's instructions. Oh, yaaay. Group activity.

Val turned to look at Jasper. "Should we form a group together or..?" Unless they didn't want to, in which case she'll go find some other group.

Rosa concentrated as she bent her head over her parchment trying to use her detective powers of elimination to figure out which founder was hidden behind each curtain. She had quickly deduced that portrait B was Slytherin and D was Gryffindor. The other two portraits she hadn't questioned herself, but Rosa had listened in on her peers with half an ear. Satisfied with her answers she waited for the lesson to continue.

SPOILER!!: Rosa's answers

A: Rowena Ravenclaw because she likes books and knowledge
B: Salazar Slytherin - because he like snakes in general values his own skin very much.
C: Helga Hufflepuff because she accepts all and likes the kitchens
D: Godric Gryffindor - because he likes duelling like the famous Harry Potter


When the lesson continued they were tasked with creating their own imaginary magical school with a name, motto and houses with traits in groups. Looking around for a partner she smiled at the sight of Cailyn and waved at her as she walked over to her desk. "Hi Cailyn, want to be partners? We could call our school Cairos school of witchcraft and wizardry or something?" A playby on their two names of course. If more joined them they could of course change or extend the school name. "Got any idea what motto our imaginary school could have? Does it need to be in latin?" At this moment Rosa couldn't remember what motto Hogwarts had except that it was something in latin.

Oh, a basilisk! That pretty much clinched it for Celyn. She was sure she knew who that founder was even as Mercer was grabbing her hand to pull her along to the next one before the portrait could answer her own question. She certainly didn't mind. Mercer was a cutie pie and she could just be led around helping him with his questions.

She did hear something about a secret chamber as they made their way towards the third portrait which just confirmed that the second one must be Salazar Slytherin. And oh! How sweet, Mercer was calling her beautiful. She smiled softly, but pretended not to hear since he was whispering it to the portrait, though she gave Cooper an amused little glance.

Truly, she only needed to hear the portrait's voice to narrow down who it might be. They already had Ravenclaw and Slytherin, so even if the answer about pizza wasn't particularly revealing, since it was a feminine voice, she deducted that it was Helga Hufflepuff. And just in time for the activity to come to an end. Even if they hadn't gotten to the fourth portrait, it was easy enough to figure that it must be Godric Gryffindor.

"Yes," she agreed with a soft chuckle as Cooper voiced the same thought to her. She finished up her notes - A. Ravenclaw, B. Slytherin, C. Hufflepuff, D. Gryffindor - then looked back up at Cooper. He... looked a little zoned out. She watched him for a moment more, then smiled again when he turned his attention back to her. Obviously the two of them plus Mercer would be a group. She'd even suggest Milo to join them too, but.. where had he run off to? Hopefully he didn't leave class.

"Oh I think Branxburry sounds like a great name for our school!" Celyn told Mercer encouragingly. She really did think so too. It was a nice mashup of their names, but also had a certain ring to it as well. "That could be your founder portrait," she added, grinning down at his little drawing. How cute.

She paused a moment to think about the assignment. "Do you ever think," she began, mostly asking Cooper, but also addressing Mercer, "that rigid house systems do more harm than good? Like maybe it creates division among students. And tells them that certain qualities are better than others." It was just musing aloud. She'd still happily do the assignment, but it was a thing that she'd considered.
