PostSubject: DADA - Lesson 3 (Years 6 & 7)   Tue Jul 01, 2014 12:09 pm

With the last lesson of the day being left to the older students, Jake had picked something which essentially would end up amusing. He hoped, anyway. It was useful as well, with some of the kids moving out in to the wider world, it was more likely they were going to encounter the creature Jake had gotten for them today.

Turning to the board, Jake wrote on the board carefully "Boggarts" before setting the chalk down and moving to his desk. Sitting on the edge of it, Jake waited to see who would come today, hopefully some enthusiasm would come in to the classroom to lift his spirits before the holidays.

With the last lessons of the year coming around, Josh was thankful that he would be retreating back to the Murray estates for the holidays. No-one there could try to make him conform, and he wouldn't keep bumping in to annoying pests. Like Louise Grey.

Entering the room, Josh noted the professor but made no attempts to acknowledge him openly as he moved across the room to the opposite wall. Leaning against the wall, Josh dropped his bag to the ground, waiting for more students to arrive so they could get this done with.

After the awkward situation with camping, Tess couldn't help but hope that they would be working as individuals. DADA was one of those classes that she truly enjoyed, not just for Jake as a professor, but the subject and how it interested her. Giving herself a once over in the mirror, Tess was off towards class, trying to get there on time and not have the stairs magically switch on her.

Finally reaching the second floor, she swiftly walked towards the classroom and pushed the door open. At first she thought that there would be no one there, that is until in on one wall was the professor, and on the other Josh. She smiled shyly towards the professor and walked towards the other side. She felt awkward standing in the middle between the two of them. For some reason a sense of tension was felt, but it was probably from the silence. Putting her books down, she clasped her hands in front of her and waited patiently for others to arrive.

After what went on for the first two lessons, Thana was less than excited for the third. Her first school year was almost at an end, and her freedom for summer was coming. It couldn't get here quick enough in her opinion.

Walking in she noticed one if the few people she somewhat liked, Tess. She acknowledged her before greeting the Professor, " Hello there Sir" she said before leaning against a wall she read . Boggarts on the board, " This is going to be one hell of a lesson" she thought to herself.

Shiva wasn't late which was a good thing, she had forgotten her book for DADA in the common room and had to run back and get it. when safely in her bag she made her way back towards the classroom and was now entering the class. DADA was a good and helpful class. The Hufflepuff saw a lot of familiar faces and none were from Hufflepuff like her, now all she had to do was wait.

DADA was a class that she was used to by now and decided to attend it since this would be her last time there and all that. The Hufflepuff made her way inside and took a seat, everyone knew how she was by now when it came to actually talking to others unless she really had to that is. Now all she had to do was wait.

Mavis made her way to DADA, she was too tired to actually care if she went or not but this class didn't annoy her as much as the others did. Mavis entered the class and took a seat where she wouldn't be disturbed, she didn't greet anyone but that is what she usually does anyway so she could careless. The Slytherin took out her wand because she knew she'd need it and waited for the class to start so it could end.

Joe hesitated outside of the classroom, completely tense as he stared at the door. He was still nothing short of embarrassed about his first Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson; fainting in front of his entire class wasn't something that he would admit to feeling great about, but the boy figured that if he were to shy away from everything that he failed at, he would be shying away from almost everything.

With a breath to settle his stomach, the Hufflepuff pushed the door open and held his other arm tight against his body, avoiding his professor's eyeline through embarrassment and stood against the wall near the door, ready to literally boot it out of the room if he felt a wave of panic and deemed such an action necessary.

His bag fell to the floor with a soft thump as he read the board. Boggarts he thought to himself, shoving his hands in his pockets and balling them as hard as he could. Fear.

As each member of the class entered, Jake greeted them with a soft hello. Most didn't speak, and those who did didn't say much. Jake wasn't worried with that though, he knew not everyone was outgoing, and he didn't mind at all. Checking his watch, the professor noted that it was time to begin, so he pushed himself to his feet.

"Okay everyone, lets begin, shall we?" Jake asked, looking around at everyone in the classroom with a warm smile. "So, as you may have noted, today's topic is Boggarts. Let's begin with people telling me what they know. I'll only accept one answer per student, so please don't give me an essay. Work together as one group to get the final answer." Jake instructed, looking around to see who would be the first to give an answer.


OOC: Please note, Jake's classes do not have seats unless I state otherwise. In future, no points will be awarded to those who can't read this.

Thana listened as Professor Jake started the lesson. When he asked a question, still leaning comfortably against the wall, and noticing no one else had answered yet. Thana spoke up, and gave the first answer.

"A boggart is an amortal shape-shifting non-being" Thana replied, remembering what she had remembered from her textbooks. She left her answer there, instead of giving all of what she remembered.

The Hufflepuff looked to the Ravenclaw girl as she answered, tempted not to speak up himself but knowing it would only do to draw attention his way. He thought for a few seconds, trying not to paraphrase what the brunette had said, and after knotting his fingers behind his back, he let out the words in a soft, but not quiet tone.

"The boggart takes the form of the person's biggest fear," he said simply, looking at the piece of floor just in front of his professor's feet as the words tumbled from his lips. This was just textbook stuff; no real history or impressive fact, just words that he knew. Which was strange, really, because words weren't usually Joe's forté.

When Tess had entered the class, Josh had acknowledged the witch with a small nod. There wasn't exactly much need of conversation with the witch, they had an understanding and Josh liked the fact the witch knew exactly when they needed to talk and when they could work in simple gestures.

Everyone else who entered, well, Josh didn't begin to acknowledge them for a moment because they were of no importance to him.

With the question on Boggarts, Josh watched two other students answer before looking back to the professor. "A Boggart can only be defeated with laughter. The spell used to defeat them changes them in to something comical, if done correctly, and they are shunned back in to hiding." The Slytherin explained lazily. Boggarts were creatures that only existed when you allowed filth to lurk in your home. The Murray Manor would never be subjected to such beings.

With each answer that was given, Jake nodded to show that he'd heard the replies. "Well done, each of you take five points for your house." Jake told the three who'd answered before going back to addressing the class. "Now, for today, we are each going to take it in turns to try and repel a Boggart." Jake explained, taking out his wand and moving between the students to the trunk at the back.

With a simple levitating charm, Jake moved it to the middle of the room, but still closer to the back than anything else. "I have a specimen for you to work with and you'll each come up one by one." Jake told the class, each of you please take out your wand and practice the shape of the spell which is as follows."

Jake showed the U type shape with a horizontal line on each side, giving a moments pause for the class to have a go. "The incantation of the spell is Riddikulus. Now, I will open the trunk for each of you in turn, the Boggart will take the shape of your biggest fear and you will need to make it amusing. The collective laughter of the group will repel the Boggart back in to the trunk. Who would like to have a go first?"

With that, Jake moved behind the trunk, readying himself for the first person.

Who would like to go first?"

Thana quietly moved to the front of the room, more-so out of curiosity than interest. She wanted to know what her fear was.

She nodded to Professor Jake and he opened the trunk, Thana readied herself and waited. Soon enough the boggart came out, Thana waited for her fear to take shape. It took a while, she didn't know what she was scared of.

Finally, her fear came into view. It took its shape and...It was Tom Riddle, but in his older form. When he was known as Lord Voldemort. The boggart went and started to move, briefly Thana was scared it was the real thing. The boggart made mouth movements, no sound came out but Thana knew what the boggart-Voldemort was saying.

"They will know soon enough my daughter" the Boggart mouthed, Thana steadied herself and cast the charm. "Riddikulus!" she said, casting it. The boggart turned into a Voldemort with drag makeup up on. Thana couldn't help but laugh, it was genuinely funny. She laughed and moved aside for the next person to have a go.

Hoping no one would notice what had really happened, Thana went and sat at the back of the class. Not on a chair or anything, just against the wall and the window. She pulled out a book and started drawing in it. Waiting for the lesson to finish.

Jake watched the first witch step up, Thana. He was proud to see her confronting her fears, after their extra lessons, Jake would not have expected the witch to be the first up, but all of that was internal emotion as he only smiled in encouragement to the witch for having a go. Opening the trunk for the witch, Jake watched along with the rest of the class to see what it would turn in to.

It took a short while for the Boggart to choose the witch's fear, which likely meant she had more than one and it was struggling to find the form that would frighten her the most. Though the form before them was not one that he would have thought many of the students in here would have reason to be fearful of. Lord Voldemort was only someone Jake had read of, and though his reign of terror was scary, it wasn't in anyone's era in this room.

It was only a few moments later that the witch managed the spell, seeing Voldemort in drag made Jake laugh out loud, and the Boggart slunk back in to the trunk, defeated. "Well done, Thana, an excellent show of how to do this magic!" Jake congratulated the witch, looking around the class. "Who would like to give it a go next?" Jake asked, looking for the next volunteer.

Tess wasn't too happy about this exercise. It made everyone vulnerable in front of this classroom. Usually she was happy to volunteer first, but in some part of her mind, she wanted to make it clear what fear would appear. Would it be her brother? Her father? Her mother? Something bigger? She had no idea. She didn't want to embarrass herself, she didn't want to seem weak. As Thana volunteered, she leaned back against the wall. Somehow it felt intruding to let everyone see their fears, so she instead took advantage of how people circled around, blocking the view.

As Thana moved on, they looked for a new volunteer. Was she going to do it? She pressed her head against the wall, mulling over it. She knew it had to happen anyways, either she was going to be the middle person, or the last. She couldn't think of anything more. But she figured, if she started now, then her fears could be forgotten. Taking a deep breath, she raised her hand, and passed through the people nervously. Walking to the middle of the room, she found herself wondering if she could take it back.

She looked towards Jake, feeling no need to hide her expression of nervousness and fear. Closing her eyes, she began to compose herself, her shoulders were pushed back, her expression of nervousness dissipated and her cold eyes staring at the box. She signaled Jake to open the trunk and soon enough, the monstrous thing appeared before her.

It stared at her, if it even had eyes; looming over her, studying her and figuring out the fear. She herself had no idea what it could be, but the faster that she got things in control, the quicker she could get out of the area. Immediately it began to shift, from someone short, for a moment it looked like her, she was confused and it began to shift to a taller person, and it keeps growing taller. Her eyes followed and when it happened, she knew who it was. His hair was slicked back, the man in a suit, power radiating off of him and a cold smirk on his face. His blue eyes shined, at her, those eyes didn't belong to him, those were Mycroft's and somehow it seemed, the two people had merged into one. The hair was her fathers, the eyes were her brother's. The suit belonged to both, but the posture was her brothers.  She felt her legs shake a bit, and slowly those eyes glittered to the gray she knew. It immediately walked forward and bent down against her ear. She shivered and closed her eyes.

"Failure" it hissed. "Failure!"

She took a few steps back as it looked over her. He seemed so much taller than in person, and the fact that he was speaking made her begin to blush horrified at all of this. The dead eyes is what frightened her, it was so accurate that made her grab her wand tightly. Slowly she lifted her wand, trying to compose herself. She lifted her head to look right at it's eyes. And immediately the U shape began to take form on her wand, determined.

"Riddikulus!" she cried out.

"Accident!" It yelled out before the spell it.

Slowly it began to shift, the color of his hair shifted to a glamorous blue, his suit slowly being ripped away, and a matching uniform to hers was applied. The skirt let out his very pale legs, and the shirt was tight around him, letting his midriff show, and in his sparkling blue hair was a green bow, one he would make her wear as a child.

Then she did something she hadn't done in public ever. She giggled, she covered her mouth in surprise at her outburst, but soon enough it wasn't helped. Such a powerful man, turned into nothing but a school girl, and it brought her some kind of glee. A lightness on her and her cheeks flushed in surprise that she had done it.

Once the boggart was safe in the box, she smiled shyly at Jake and walked towards the end of the classroom, hiding against the wall, her cheeks still pink, and waited for the rest to go.

The second volunteer was a witch Jake had known for probably the longest in the school. The Head Girl, Tess Holmes moved through the crowd, as usual she didn't look overly confident, but Jake knew that despite the outward persona of not being confident in her own abilities, Tess Holmes was one of his best students. Though, he couldn't openly acknowledge that in the fear of it being deemed favouritism or some other nonsense Jake didn't care about.

Jake watched once more as the Boggart took shape in front of the witch, kind of recognising the figure, but not completely sure from where he stood. It... seemed to be Professor Holmes, but parts of the figure didn't look right. Jake frowned slightly, but his expression changed as he heard the words. That was not Mycroft Holmes... was it? Jake's eyes flashed to the fear on Tess' face, readying himself to intervene if he needed to, but as Jake took out his own wand, the witch managed the spell comfortably.

But as the Boggart changed in to a girl's uniform, Jake let out a chuckle at the idea, pushing the Boggart back in to the trunk. Jake clapped for the witch, it had been quite a feat. "Well done, Tess!" He told the Head Girl, giving her a thumbs up for her efforts. "Very well done, lets keep it moving everyone!" Jake told the class, waving the next person up to the trunk.

October watched as her fellow classmates did this assignment. October was afraid of what hers would be, it wasn't fun having a fear. When Jake asked for someone else, she stepped forward with her wand in hand. "I'll go" she said. Jake opened up the trunk and out came... herself. She was afraid of herself? Well that made sense to her. Her other self opened her mouth but she spoke. "Riddikulus" she watched as herself was no longer there. October stepped off to the side to where she once was.

Jake watched the next participant step forward, October. The witch readied herself and began and it seemed... well, mostly like she couldn't be bother, if Jake was honest. The spell was half-hearted and the witch had turned around before even checking the Boggart had gone. That was the witch's biggest mistake, after not showing any enthusiasm for Jake's class.

The Boggart hadn't moved, in fact it was approaching the Hufflepuff with a hungry look in it's eye. Which meant Jake had to intervene because the witch wasn't looking. Hurrying in front of the Boggart, Jake watched as the Boggart shifted before him. The broken frame of Victoria only just managed to stand before him. Trembling as she looked up at him, accusing eyes barely able to reach his own. Blood, scratches, bruises covered the witch's body, and she was so much thinner than Jake knew his little sister to be.

It was heart-breaking to see his little sister like that, and Jake swallowed thickly at the scene before him. "Riddikulus!" Jake managed, performing the spell and hearing the whip like action fill the room. The Boggart turned in to Victoria wearing a sunflower outfit, dancing around jovially. It brought a soft laugh from Jake before the Boggart was shunned back in to the trunk.

Taking a brief moment to collect himself, Jake moved to the trunk before turning to the class. "Let that be a lesson to all of you, that to complete this spell competently you must one, really want to be doing this, and two, make sure you defeat the Boggart properly. Miss Faileng was lucky that there were overs around, because had we not have been, there is no telling what horrors she could have been subjected to now."

Allowing a brief pause, Jake looked around the room, before smiling at his class. "Who would like to go next?" Jake asked, looking for his next volunteer.

Joe watched some of his classmates do the exercise, softly laughing along with the others as they changed form and felt his hands become gradually more and more clammy. Fears weren't anything new to Joe, of course not. He'd become quite well acquainted with most of his, as it went. Knowing which one would appear was what terriffied him, and to be honest he would much rather not end up passing out in front of his whole class again. But he could do this, he told himself, because he would be okay. He would do the spell properly and it would disappear just as soon as it arrived.

Because he could think of her and everything would be fine.

After a saddening display from his professor - a young girl with a striking resemblence to the man himself - Joe moved to the front of the group stiffly. He gave Jake a nod to show that he was ready and held his wand tightly in his hand, staring at the trunk with a new, dark colour to his soft blue eyes. He watched as the trunk clicked open and the creature came out, swirling in the air for a few moments before three semi-translucent, black, scarlet eyed figures met his eyes.

They started to laugh and float around the boy's head, Joe's own voice leaving their lips. Demons? he asked himself, swallowing sharply as he held his breath.
"Who the hell could ever love you?" the beasts asked, shaking their heads and glaring at him. "Why would anyone want to be close to you?" He felt his stomach tighten and his arm seemed to not want to work, but damn he was going to make it.

"Brooke," the prefect murmured, taking a steadying breath. "She does." They were still ranting at him, laughing at his imperfections, telling the secrets from his childhood that he had never told anyone. How he couldn't ride a bike until he was nine, how he didn't grow out of wetting the bed until he was seven, how he was scared of taking the bus, where the scar that his hair only just covered really came from... He tensed his arm, pulling both his lips between his teeth.

"Ridikkulus!" the Hufflepuff said, the ghostly figures retreating backwards and falling to the floor. Their eyes were the first things to change, glowing bright pink, before the ghostly figures turned into fluffy, pink clouds that seemed to be raining sweets. He wasn't sure why it was suddenly so feminine, but he didn't mind, because... Because he actually did it.

His arm fell to his side as he stared at the clouds for a moment, trying to process the idea that he wasn't totally hopeless anymore. I did it he thought, trying not to smile to show how excited he was but failing miserably and inevitably letting the grin take over as he stepped back, still trying to make sure he wasn't being deceived by the demons that liked to retreat sometimes, as if to throw him up in the spirit of clowning, before consuming him all over again.

They stayed fluffy, though, and the boy looked to his professor for confirmation that it actually had happened, breaths not leaving his lungs just in case he was seeing things.

Inside, though, pride burst through Joe incredibly, making him feel that much better about being him.

The next person to step forward was Joe Astrid. The boy who'd fainted in the first lesson of the year. Jake gave the boy a warm smile. To be honest, he was proud of the boy for coming back to the lesson, a lot of people would have likely stayed away through fear. And Merlin Jake was putting them through their paces with this lesson.

Opening the trunk when Joe gave him the signal, Jake watching the Boggart shift in to something... Something he'd never seen before. Demons? Jake wasn't sure as he stepped around the trunk, making sure he was close enough to help if the Hufflepuff got himself in trouble again. But, to the boy's credit he handled the situation very well, given everything that was being said, quite clearly for everyone to hear.

Joe pushed through that barrier though, and the moment the demons changed, Jake joined in with the laughs from the class to shun the Boggart back in to the trunk. Jake moved to the Hufflepuff, clapping him on the shoulder as he leant in and whispered only loud enough for Joe to hear. "I'm very, very proud of you, Joe." Once that had been said, Jake showed the boy to the side and went back to looking around the class. "Come on, who's next?" Jake asked enthusiastically, looking around the class to find the next volunteer.

Josh had waited quietly throughout the shows of courage from various people. The Slytherin was almost certain he knew what his boggart would turn in to. The only question that remained was what a real boggart looked like. When nobody seemed to want to give the spell a go, Josh moved forwards, taking out his wand with an air of confidence that always proceeded the boy.

There was no fear, because he doubted a Boggart even in it's true form could be that bad. Giving the signal to Professor Newbury, the Slytherin waited for the thing to move forwards. Watching as the shapes span in mid-air, trying to find a shape. Josh was highly aware that the longer it took to become whole meant it was struggling to find your fears, and so a smirk touched Josh's lips. Smugly waiting for the Boggart to exhaust itself and present it's true form.

But for once in his life, Josh Murray had been wrong.

Before the Slytherin stood his mother in her uptight mannerisms of the world, his father stood just behind the witch. Everything was so off, his parents hated one another... They... were smiling. Josh's eyes travelled to the manner in which his father held the witch by the hip, and both of them... both of them held out their arms for him to come to them. To hug them.

To be loved by them. Cared for by them.

Josh was stuck in position, watching his parents in... in such a loving manner. But they didn't stay there. The scene changed and Louise Grey stood before him, a smile in place as she replicated his parents demeanour, slowly moving closer, her arms out stretched an adoring look on her face. The Slytherin stepped back a few paces, trying not to panic, but...

Love, Josh Murray's biggest fear in life was feeling loved.

"R..." Josh couldn't move, he realised, his hands were firmly by his side and for once, Josh didn't have the cool to do the spells. "Rid..." The Boggart had merged in to all three of the people and there were blurred figures behind.

Closing his eyes, Josh raised his wand, before shouting. "RIDDIKULUS!"

There was a pause, Josh refused to answer, but a moment later laughter rang around the room, and Josh opened his eyes. Looking at how the three people were getting hit back with big red love hearts. Away from him and back in to the box. Josh cast a quick look to the professor before moving away once more, standing away from everyone as he processed what he'd just seen.

He'd... been so sure...

The Slytherin who stepped up next was not a surprise. Even the manner in which he approached this was not a surprise to Jake. Over the year he'd been teaching, Jake had formed an idea of Josh Murray in his head, and it was that nothing could ever get to the boy. Whether that was healthy, Jake couldn't be sure, but it was the image that he had.

Today was no different either, and once the signal was given, Jake opened the trunk and watched with interest as to what the Boggart would turn in to. As it took it's time to show itself, Jake guessed that they were in for a treat.

Though what did appear was so heart wrenching, Jake was not in the least bit surprise that the Slytherin struggled to comprehend the fear. The professor moved around the trunk to put himself close enough to intervene, conscious that Josh was struggling. As always, however, Jake waited until it was absolutely necessary before he would jump in.

Which paid off for the Slytherin as he managed to throw the creature off on his third attempt.

"Well done, Josh!" Jake called after the retreating back of the Slytherin. "Who's next?" Jake asked looking between Shiva and Mavis for answers.


OOC: Permission to GM Jake opening the trunk is granted in this thread.
