Default Transfiguration Lesson: TBA
Rhibear ~ Madam Solo ~ Dark Brooding Girl ~ Accio Jedi ~ Gryffinclaw ~ Just a doll

It may be a cold Friday afternoon in early January, but don't get too excited. There's still one more transfiguration lesson before the weekend. The toasty warm room is a stark contrast to the cold hallway, but upon entering the classroom, students will soon notice that the warming charms are the only thing normal about today's setup.

The desks are gone. In their place are two long benches at the left and right sides of the room, creating a wide open space in the middle. A line of dummies stand at the back, but these aren't just any dummies. They're smooth and white, as if made of snow and ice. Professor Carton stands beside a curious-looking wardrobe at the front of the room, waiting for the students to arrive. ”Hello, welcome in,” he greets each person. ”Take a seat on one of the benches, doesn't matter which side.”

OOC: Welcome to Transfiguration! Remember that this is not the first lesson your students would've had with Professor Carton this term. We'll begin in ABOUT 22 HOURS Class has started!.

Lesson Progression
Q1: Name something you could conjure to slow or subdue an opponent
Mini Activity
Q2: What should one consider when using the fire rope spell?

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

With a last vague shiver, Ary stepped into the Transfiguration classroom and was immediately greeted with more warmth than exuded from his clothing. Temperature was put out of his mind, however, as he saw the immediate differences to the place. It just might be that the class would be practicing something on those dummies... something to do with clothing maybe, since there was a wardrobe?

With that deduction in mind, he wiggled his fingers in Carton's direction before taking a seat on the left side bench. Yep, he will forever favour the left side. Ary put his bag beside him, hugging it subconsciously while waiting for the room to fill up.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

"Hi, Professor Carton. good to see you." Brandon... may have felt some lingering anxiety at the idea of taking a 'side', even though he was assured that it didn't matter. What if he was sitting on the wrong side? And why was the classroom set up so strangely? Were they going to have to fight the ice dummies? He stood there for a moment, not doing anything.

Feeling exhausted after a long week of homework and studying, Brandon simply chose the left side, and tried not to think too hard about it. He intended to take out his notebook, but his eyes blinked closed somewhere along the way and he fell asleep. He fidgeted and flinched, bothered by some unknown nightmare.

Yeah, Brandon was Tired with a capital T. He promised he was listening, though...

Eugh, Transfiguration.

Sighing with an audible exhale, the crisp breath outwards would lightly be visible due to the frigid temperature. Not fully in the sense of how it would be if this class were taken outside, but it certainly did form into a vague and condensed mist out in the cold corridor. To basically put it, Archie wasn't necessarily happy to be going to this class, and the weather only made the mood worse. The certain, acquired disposition for this subject, in particular, was whole-heartedly only topped by his lack of interest in Care of Magical Creatures; albeit the dislike in both was for different reasons. While the former was simply out of a lack of understanding in the course, the latter was caused by fear and dismay at the plethora of creatures that were studied. No matter though, he would still at least make the attempt to put on the facade of being content to be there, regardless of whether or not it was true. Such was the general disposition of the boy; as his Aunt always told him 'fake it 'til you make it'.

Upon entering the room itself, at least one of the problems would be solved. It was much warmer in here compared to the hallway, which allowed for at least a temporary sense of relief to wash over Archibold.

Taking a seat at one of the benches on the right side of the classroom, a wave would be given to both Ary and Brandon on the way there. Then, when seated, he'd turn to the front to give the same greeting to the Professor; also adding a "Hello Professor Carton, how's your day going?" Although the smile was somewhat forced, it wasn't super obvious. At least in Archie's opinion, it wasn't. After all this was said and done, he'd also make note of the line of pearlescent mannequins situated at the back of the class. It brought to question what they would be doing, but it was only a matter of time until he found out.

Having spent the winter break at Hogwarts, Hopper didn’t really feel the cold as much as he thought he would. He’d spent a lot of time out in it, as a matter of fact, and as such, it was almost as if he’d somehow developed thicker skin. With that being said, it was Friday afternoon and this seventh year Gryffindor was tired.

Entering the classroom, he instantly began shedding layers as he walked over to where the desks were, except, they weren’t there. “Benches. Huh. Had a winter clean professor?” he asked with a smile on his face. Pivoting, he headed straight over to the benches and put down his hat, scarf and cloak.

Hooper flashed the other students a smile as he folded his cloak and put the rest of his clothes in a nice, neat pile before turning, ready for the lesson to start.

Norman hadn't been waiting long when the students began to file in, starting with Atreyu-Rehman. The boy’s finger wiggle got a slight smile from him. “Hello, Mr. Atreyu-Rehman,” he greeted, his gaze following the boy to the left side bench.

Fox’s arrival was likewise met with a smile. “Hello, Mr. Fox. Nice to see you too,” Norman replied. Another one for the left side, not that it made any difference. The benches were simply for organizational purposes. He watched the boy take his seat, somewhat concerned by the fidgeting. Wait, was he asleep?

Norman had studied enough body language in his time to know a forced smile when he saw one, but he also knew that drawing attention to one rarely solved anything. “Hello, Mr. O’Brien,” he greeted, pretending to be oblivious. “It’s gone well so far, thank you. How’s yours?”

Norman had to stifle a chuckle as Ridley-Rush removed several layers. Maybe he should’ve mentioned on the class notice that the room would be heated. Making a mental note to do that for the next lesson, he greeted the boy, “Hello, Mr. Ridley-Rush.” The mention of cleaning got a slight smile. “Something like that.” The reason for the benches would become clear soon.


After allowing a few minutes for stragglers, Norman checked his watch. It read 1:00 on the dot… time to start the lesson. He pointed his wand at the door, and it closed with a click. “Good afternoon, everyone,” he addressed the group. “Time for another transfiguration lesson.”

He paused for a moment to allow time for the students to focus on him before continuing, “Let’s start off with a hypothetical scenario: Imagine you’re running from a dangerous person or creature. What can you conjure to subdue or slow down your opponent? Although there are other branches of transfiguration you could use, let’s focus on conjuration for now.”

OOC: Class has officially begun! Jump in at any time; just post as if your character has been here all along unless you want IC consequences for late arrival. You’ll have 22-24 HOURS for this question.

Ary wiggle-waved a greeting at Archie and sent one to Hooper as well. With the students trickling in, it meant that time was drawing closer to the lesson’s starting time. Sure enough, Professor Carton magically shut the door. The Slytherin straightened his posture, ready to pay full attention to whatever the topic turned out to me.

Ary’s mind suddenly fixated on his fleeing from one of the very Dark Creatures they learned about in DADA. He tried to picture what Conjuration Spell would come in handy during such a horrific time. He doubted clothing would be of much help so now Ary was having doubts about his earlier suspicions about the lesson’s topic.

“The Rope Conjuring Spell, Professor,’’
he said, lowering his hand after being called upon. “That would be a good way to potentially halt the person or creature in their tracks.”

While Emma was definitely looking forward the weekend already, she had trudged up to the Transfiguration Classroom, grateful that Professor Carton provided the customary warming charms. Although a bit too warm and she could almost fall asleep. The divided classroom was alarming except that it seemed the professors liked dividing them into two teams this year. She was about to choose the right side of the room, but doubled back to plop down next to Ary. He seemed to have all the good luck and maybe she could learn a thing or two from him?

She had so many questions about this hypothetical scenario. Like .... why was she running? If she stopped running, would she get eaten? Burned? Was the dangerous person or creature armed and with what sort of weapons? Just their own physical attributes or a wand ? But apparently none of that mattered because what she needed to do was find a way to deter them. Ropes, as Ary suggested could work ...

"Is there something to maybe conjure giant boulders or trees?" Having them have to dart around the obstacles would surely slow them down ....

Hooper listened to the question and considered it for a moment, even going as far as to listen to the answers of the other students before offering his own opinion. The second year Slytherin (Ary) had a good idea but from his experience, that would have been easily defensible. Conjuring boulders and trees, again, an okay idea but a little less predictable. Boulders and trees can roll and fall in any direction, or at least, that was his opinion.

Raising his hand, he offered an answer of sorts.

“I think I’d go with Incendio or Aguamenti, just because you can control them a little better. I know you mentioned running but going on the offence and taking them by surprise isn’t a bad option to have.” That being said, if it was a famous dark witch or wizard, he wasn’t against running.

One of the first few things that Archie would do, even before class would fully go underway, was pull out his Transfiguration textbook. Regardless of what the lesson was on, he'd be needing it if he wanted to at least make some kind of attempt at knowing what was taking place. Also, the very resource was there for that reason if and when they needed it. Somewhat mindlessly while getting it out but still with an air that he was paying attention, would the young O'Brien respond "That's good to hear, as is mine. Can't complain besides things that we can't control like the weather." And it wouldn't be too long after saying this, that the door would be closed, and Professor Carton would proceed to start things off.

Attention being fully cast up to the front of the room, Archie would sit there and listen while the scenario in question would be given. The question that followed thereafter allowed some breathing room in their responses. While conjuration may have been a branch of Transfiguration specifically, it also further delved and twisted into other subjects. This would be the thing that the Slytherin would primarily focus on because he wouldn't even need to look in the book for the initial question. Raising his dominant hand, he'd present his answer "The Bird-Conjuration Charm-" And there was more to be said as to why this could theoretically work to subdue an opponent. So, he'd go on to do just the very thing after a very small second of breathing room. "-if used in tandem with Oppugno, the conjured flock would attack the opponent, possibly subduing them." It was...a stretch to say the least, as there still was the possibility that it wouldn't work. However, a group of birds flying and swarming around a person or creature would make things more difficult for them to do anything.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Brandon had, in fact, been asleep. However, a classmate nudged him awake as the lesson began to start. What were they talking about? He blinked at the professor tiredly. Oh, um. Running away from stuff. He was fairly good at that, though he'd never tried using transfiguration to help. "I, um. I would conjure something heavy, like a rock or a weight, and throw it at them as I was running away. Maybe they'd get hurt or at least trip." The type of object was irrelevant- it didn't need to be specific to be thrown at somebody.

Brandon was fairly certain that his answer was not the lesson plan, but he thought the idea was a good one and it was the only thing that came to mind, so... yeah. Throwing heavy stuff at an opponent was guaranteed to make them pause, right?

Hope had come in and sat down quietly on one of the benches, trying to project an air of mystery and coolness. But she couldn't help getting involved in the class once the discussion started.

"You could use Locomotor Mortis to slow them down. Or that other one...Locomotor W--- something that begins with "w"..." Hope searched her mind, trying to think of the word; it was a funny-sounding one...oh, yes! "Locomotor Wibbly! They can't chase you if their legs are stuck together, or weakened."

Norman couldn’t wait to hear what the students came up with to this question. Atreyu-Rehman’s hand was the first one he saw in the air. The boy’s answer got a slight smile. Already they were off to a great start! “Yes, the Rope Conjuring spell is an excellent example,” he replied. “Thank you, Mr. Atreyu-Rehman.”

Norman considered Montmorency’s answer for a moment. “It’s more likely that you’d turn something into a tree or boulder than conjure one,” he replied with an approving smile, “but I like where you’re going with that idea, Miss Montmorency. Creating a barrier is an effective tactic.”

Ridley-Rush’s answer went in a completely different, though no less reasonable direction. “Sound reasoning, Mr. Ridley-Rush,” Norman replied with an approving nod. “Sometimes the best defense is a good offense.”

O’Brien’s answer got a small approving smile, as it reminded Norman of a time during his first year teaching at Hogwarts when he’d used that exact plan of attack against the Neo Alliance. “Excellent strategy, Mr. O’Brien,” he replied. “And even if the birds aren’t enough to injure your opponent, they can distract them long enough for you to take them by surprise with a stronger attack.”

The type of object was irrelevant- it didn't need to be specific to be thrown at somebody.

Brandon was fairly certain that his answer was not the lesson plan, but he thought the idea was a good one and it was the only thing that came to mind, so... yeah. Throwing heavy stuff at an opponent was guaranteed to make them pause, right?
Oh good, Fox was awake, and not a moment too soon! Norman considered the boy’s answer, nodding in approval. “Good idea, Mr. Fox,” he replied. “You could also levitate objects that are too heavy to throw.”

Hope searched her mind, trying to think of the word; it was a funny-sounding one...oh, yes! "Locomotor Wibbly! They can't chase you if their legs are stuck together, or weakened."
Archard’s answer was not a conjuration spell, nor was it a transfiguration spell at all. Nonetheless, it was a valid way to handle the hypothetical scenario. Norman nodded. “Yes, that would certainly do the job. Thank you, MIss Archard!”


Norman paused, searching the room for any more hands in the air. When he saw none, he took that as his cue to move on. “Wonderful answers, everyone,” he said. “All of you came up with sound strategies to foil an opponent, but Mr. Atreyu-Rehman came the closest to guessing today’s spell.” The fact that no one had guessed that exact spell somewhat surprised him. “It is a form of rope conjuring, but not just any rope. Today we’ll be practicing the Fire Rope spell.”

He waited a moment to allow time for that information to sink in before continuing, “This spell is useful because it not only binds an opponent like the rope conjuring spell. It can also burn its target, although it won’t do so unless the caster wills it. Not to worry, we won’t be burning anything now!” Not yet, anyway.

Norman drew his wand to begin the spell demonstration. “To cast, move your wand in a whip-like motion in the direction you want the flames to go, and say the incantation, Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem.” He brandished his wand as if cracking a whip, drawing an imaginary straight line down the center of the classroom, far away from either of the benches. “Ignisio Funem!” he cast, A flame-like rope shot from the tip of his wand, following the line down the center of the classroom until he ended the spell.

With a wave of Norman’s wand, the spell information appeared on the board. “Take a few minutes to practice the incantation and wand movement separately,” he instructed. “If you’re feeling confident, you may try casting the spell, but don’t attempt to make your ropes burn anything.” They’d be coming back to that later on. “You have ten minutes, starting now!”

OOC: Sorry for the delay,,, long day yesterday! The mini activity starts here. For this, your student needs to practice the incantation and wand movement for Ignisio Funem. Your student may try casting, but casting attempts should NOT burn anyone/anything. Norman and I will check in periodically. We’ll move on in 48-60 HOURS.

Oooooo......the Fire Rope spell, that sounded so cool! Even cooler was the fact that Professor Carton demonstrated it. Kalie's eyes calmly followed the line of fire forward and back, intrigued. Not that she was a pyromaniac or anything, just that the spell would be a neat thing to have in her arsenal.

She laid her wand on her desk before practicing her pronunciation, as a precaution. Yes, she had heard when the professor said that the spell wouldn't burn unless the caster intended it to, but accidents always happened, right? Anyway... "Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem, Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem, Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem. Ignisio Funem!" There, that sounded right. Now the wand movement.....*flicking an imaginary whip*

Okay, now she felt slightly like Indiana Jones...

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

It took Brandon a few moments to fully comprehend the idea of fire ropes. The idea of fire ropes brought a trillion ethical questions to his mind. It was good to know that you could stop it from burning people, but then you could just use regular rope. Was it ever ethical to set someone on fire? Brandon couldn't really see a situation where he would need to set someone on fire instead of just... hurting them a nicer way? Fire was a Scary thing, and Brandon flinched a little at the demonstration. "Under what circumstances would we have to use this, professor?" Brandon asked anxiously. "I mean... isn't fire... you know..." Painful? He trailed off.

He should still practice the spell, though... better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Right?? Reluctantly, Brandon pulled out his wand. He practiced the whip-like motion separately from the incantation ("Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem... igneeseeo foonem... Ignisio Funem") for a few minutes before attempting the spell. "Ignisio Funem." A line of fire rope shot out of his wand, making him a little pleased but a lot anxious. He was trying to imagine a giant-sized evil dangerous terrible guy on the other end, but all he could imagine was his family. Or a tiny first year. Or someone like that. And he knew that the flame wasn't going to burn anything this way, but he still worried about hurting someone. It was in his nature to worry about that.

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

The professor was quite welcome. Ropes were the first things he thought about to aid in his defense though he supposed conjuring a boulder would help in some manner too. There were others that he had not thought of, like birds. He liked that one a lot too. But, as usual whenever Ary hit the nail on the head or came close to guessing a lesson topic, he got rather surprised. But that didn’t mean he wasn’t pleased with himself.

Smiling slightly, Ary bowed his head over his book as he wrote the topic fully in capital letters. The spell sounded like a dangerous one, especially to creatures and humans. It was also a fascinating one based on what he observed from Carton’s demonstration. Eager to get to the point where he could actually try the spell, the Slytherin quickly made the other necessary notes.

Then it was practice time.

“Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem. Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem. Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem. Ignisio Funem. Ignisio Funem.” Yep, the second year was definitely getting a hang of this incantation. With that under his belt, he began practicing the whip-like movement as best as he could from Carton’s demonstration. Over and over his left hand went into motion until he was sure it was accurate enough.

“Agreed! I wouldn’t always go with such a strong offence. Honestly, I’d rather be stealthy and sneak,” but either way, he was always prepared. Could you tell that he wanted to be an auror? That he’d spent countless evenings in the library trying to improve his knowledge, ready for his NEWTs? Hopefully, or he was wasting his time.

Hooper gave a small nod of understanding as the professor discussed what they’d be looking at today. He hadn’t practised this spell before but it was something he’d read about. This was mostly due to the fact that he didn’t fancy burning the castle down again.

Moving towards the centre of the classroom, his wand already in his hand, Hooper took a deep breath before whispering under his breath the incantation for the spell.

“Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem”

He did this a few times before moving onto the wand movement, bringing his wand down like the cracking of a whip. It was a simple enough movement to make and not at all like some of the other wand movements he’d been slaving over in the library.

Taking a moment to look around the class, the seventh year took stock of some of the younger students and smiled as some of them managed to grasp the spell pretty quickly. Not wanting to be shown up however, Hooper took a side-on stance with his wand in front of him. Swiftly with conviction, he brought it forward, bringing it down with a thunderous crack and he muttered the incantation.

“Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem”

Watching the line of rope shoot from the tip of his wand was satisfying. Fire was cool.

Norman roamed the classroom as the students set to work, monitoring their progress. He liked what he saw so far. Gellar was off to a great start. ”Excellent, Miss Gellar. Nice, strong wand movements,” he said. Elsewhere, he noticed Atreyu-Rehman likewise making progress with the incantation and wand movement. ”You too, Mr. Atreyu-Rehman. I like your pronunciation.”

Ridley-Rush's response got an approving nod. While DADA wasn't Norman's area, he did know a little something about the Auror program, enough to see that the boy had the stuff for it. Norman smiled at the successful spell cast. ”Well done, Mr. Ridley-Rush!” he said. Raising his voice slightly so the whole class could hear, he added, ”When you're ready to end your spell, use Finite.”

Hearing Fox's question, Norman reversed course. ”That's a great question, he replied thoughtfully. There was only one situation in which he would use this spell to actually burn someone. ”You'll have to decide for yourself when and if it's ethical to use this spell, but I, personally, would only use it when hurting an opponent is the only way to stop them from hurting others. Say you were facing a dangerous dark wizard, for example. They won't hesitate to harm you and others if they can break free or fight back, and when one is that determined to accomplish a goal, they're not easily deterred by minor pain.”

Not that he'd have any personal experience on the subject, none at all! Did his expression darken slightly? Absolutely not! Nothing to see here, kids! ”The good news is you're extremely unlikely to be in that situation unless you go into the Auror field,” he said with a slight smile, a smile that grew as he saw Fox's successful spell. ”Excellent work, Mr. Fox!”

OOC: You still have 16-20 HOURS for the mini activity.

Precisely. Smiling back and nodding when the Professor also further went into the response that Archie gave, that was another point which he didn't initially think of but was entirely true. Given the circumstances of what the third year's personal strong suits in magical abilities were, that was also most likely the route he'd ever go if that scenario ever happened for himself. More than less likely going on the great fallback plan of just disarming whoever he would in theory be facing via expelliarmus.

Nonetheless, it seemed it was time for the class to move on to learning what they would be. A fire whip...? Now that was a slight problem for Archie. Although the display from Professor Carton was certainly a sight to behold, the whip-like motion of the spell being cast in particular sticking out to the youngin' in a similar manner that a dance would; he still couldn't help but draw back in his bench even though the flaming whip that was conjured down the center of the room was nowhere within his general proximity. The O'Brien had a fear of open flames. Caused by something from his past, a memory which he tried to block out. Long story short, his home had nearly caught ablaze once upon a time. Ever since, the element was the only one of the 4 basic ones which he strayed away from, especially in casting. This very fear also slightly registered in his body language until the Professor ended the spell. Still though, he'd try not to draw attention to this fact. Moments of fear, while he knew were human, were ones that he didn't like to have others see him experience. Hence why his demeanor was almost always emblazoned in its own degree with sparks of confidence.

Having jotted everything that was revealed on the board within his notebook, it was now time for Archer to reluctantly move on to the portion of practicing the spell. The saving grace within the moment that allowed him to do so with slightly less hesitation was that they needn't cast the spell...yet that was. His grasp around the Elm wand was still tense to say the least. As if clinging desperately for dear life. But silently, he'd trudge through the directed wand motion first. Brandishing it as if it were a whip, but being done so on a slightly less showy scale than what he'd typically do when casting spells. Once this had been done four or five times until Archie felt like he got the hang of it, the Slytherin would then move towards practicing the incantation. Even quieter, to himself, as if the words were barely even being uttered under his breath, he'd go "Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem." Slight pause. Then the words would be repeated, still as hushed as before "Ig-NEE-see-o FOO-nem." Another momentary pause, until it all now had to be pieced together. Albeit, this time, he'd sigh slightly and hesitantly say it at his normal speaking volume "Ignisio Funem!"

There...Archibold had done the task. While normally, this would be the part where he would continue forward with actually trying to cast the spell, he'd hold off on doing so.

Oh it was a good idea?? Emma beamed but only for a moment because it seemed they were going to be conjuring a fire rope?? She wasn't sure when she'd have use for that and seemed Brandon had a similar thought in which he voiced the question. Listening to Professor Carton's answer, she frowned. It definitely didn't seem like a spell she'd be using since she never really wanted to hurt anyone.

"Ig-knee-c-o fu-nem" she whispered, not feeling confident at all with the spell. It wasn't the Professor's fault. It wasn't even really the spell's fault. She just wasn't motivated by learning such a spell because well, it just didn't really seem that useful to her. If it was any other incantation she'd likely have the use for it but not this one. Sorry.

Default Question 2
Rhibear ~ Madam Solo ~ Dark Brooding Girl ~ Accio Jedi ~ Gryffinclaw ~ Just a doll

Having answered Fox’s question, Norman made another round around the room. He noticed O’Brien’s wand movements out of the corner of his eye, but he could hardly hear the boy’s incantation. He slowed down, listening closely. This time, he heard the boy’s pronunciation, and was that a sigh he heard as well? Oh well, no matter. “Nicely done, Mr. O’Brien,” he said with a slight smile before moving on.


Norman checked his watch as he returned to the front of the room. It was time to move on to the next part of the lesson. “Excellent practice, everyone!” He addressed the group. “You’ll have more time to practice soon, but for now, here’s something to think about.”

He paused for a moment to allow the students to find a stopping place before continuing, “A moment ago, one of your classmates asked a brilliant question about when to use the fire rope spell.” He wasn’t going to put anyone on the spot by naming names, though he might have given Fox a sidelong glance. “That brings me to my next question, what should you consider when using the spell? It could be advantages, drawbacks, ethical concerns, or anything in between.”

OOC: Question 2 is up. For this, Norman is asking for something your student thinks is important to consider when using the fire rope spell. You’ll have 24-28 HOURS for this question.

Ary smiled in gratitude up at Carton. Yes, the second year was trying to do his best here. And since he felt he had the incantation down, he continued with the wand practice. There was determination to get it one hundred percent accurate, you see. However, the wand was lowered when Carton began addressing the class once more.

One possible answer jumped out at Ary instantly. How often had he seen it in movies and TV shows when the good guys usually tried to ensure it? The second year raised his hand. “You should consider those around you because you wouldn’t want to accidentally hurt them.” Exactly like the good guys trying not to hurt the innocent people around.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Brandon quietly nodded, considering the professor's words. If anyone tried to hurt his family, he could fight them with everything he could... because he'd be angry then. But he wasn't angry now, he was just... tired and lonely. It was hard to put himself in the necessary mindset.

Brilliant question? Brandon turned pink around the ears, and sank deeper into his seat. Nobody ever said that about him, that he asked brilliant questions. Did he really?

"I think you'd have to at least think about the amount of pain or force required to subdue a potential attacker. They could be a terrible person, but that doesn't mean you should burn them if you don't actually have to." To Brandon, it wasn't about how bad they were, but about how dangerous they were in the present moment. And he could only picture a few situations where he would feel okay with setting anybody on fire. He shivered uncomfortably at the very idea, looking at it from a healer's perspective. "I feel like this is a spell that should only be used defensively."

After practising the spell on and off for the last few minutes Hooper turned and focused on the Professor once again to listen. He’d been too busy practising to really hear who’d asked the question but that didn’t really matter.

When using a spell like this, there were, of course, lots of different things to consider as the Professor mentioned. He however only really had to consider the situation. “I think the situation is the most important to consider, Professor. If you’ve got dark wizards chasing you and you’re fighting for your life or to save someone, why wouldn’t you use it? I know you could hurt the wizard but if it saves your life, it’s worth it.” In case the other students couldn’t tell, Hooper had done a lot of reading on this type of moral decision because he wanted to train to become an auror. “If someone is trying to hurt me, I’m going to use something to try and stop them but not hurt them no more than needed, of course,” because there was absolutely no excuse for hurting someone more than necessary.

It would seem right off, that the efforts, no matter how small they were actually being done, weren't at least being taken out of consideration. Because while there was still the emotion of fear for actually needing to cast the spell soon most likely, Archie did still want to at least try to do so. Pushing through those things was what mattered most. He wasn't about to let a little fire get in his way either, but still was no where near as excited about it as most would be when learning a new spell. It was still to be said, that although it was previously mentioned, the conjured flames wouldn't burn until willed to do so, the thought of it alone was what brought about the frightened state of mind.

Which would play a part in Archie's own answer upon hearing the question that was being asked. It was as good of a moment to do so than ever, so why not mention the very thing. Minus the specifics of it however. Raising his hand, he'd state "Say you're in a duel with someone, and you know the opponent fears fire. This could be a spell that you might not need to even use directly on them, just getting the whip near them would act as a good enough advantage to rattle them." Of course, the student didn't mention this was one of his own fears as well. To verbally express such a thing would give that upper hand edge to those he might duel with in the future seeing as he wanted to join the Dueling Club here at Hogwarts. So, revealing a secret like that aloud to others there in the classroom would be a no-go in his opinion. Besides, it's not like they were asked to give personal and small anecdotes like that as part of the question. Archibold just figured to use the theory of it though for his own response because why not. No one else touched on that area of its many advantages/disadvantages specifically.
