PostSubject: DADA - Lesson 2 (Years 6 & 7)   Wed Oct 01, 2014 3:32 pm

The final lesson of the day was one that was going to be something of a challenge for the students. Jake was quietly confident in his students though, otherwise he wouldn't have tried this with them. The room had been set up in an unusual manner, with desks and chairs for everyone.

Jake sat on top of his desk, waiting for people to enter, straightening his tie as the chalk wrote the lesson for the day on the board.

"Non-Verbal Magic."

Cassidy made sure she was early to class this time, excited for the lesson. She always enjoyed DADA, because it was always a practical lesson, which she excelled at, by her standards. She walked into the classroom, noting that she was the first one in and smiled at Jake "Afternoon," she greeted as she saw what they would be learning written on the board. She knew it'd be a challenge, but she always liked challenges. In her opinion, it made the class interesting.

Lucy walked briskly down the halls to DADA, her book bag slung on her shoulder. She walked into the classroom, bright for the lesson, noticing a Gryffindor girl was already there. "Afternoon Jake," she greeted with a cheerful smile as she entered, noticing the topic for the lesson. She had never before attempted non-verbal spells, so it should prove to be an interesting and challenging lesson.

Jacoby walked into his next class with a bit of a smile on his face, for one it was his favorite course and he was always excited to learn whatever the professor was teaching them. Secondly; Jake was just incredibly nice too look at, which pushed Jacoby even harder to be a good student. He always was more receptive to things when being taught by someone attractive. Walking into the class he flashed a smile over at Jake and gave a small wave as he noted what the lesson was up on the board. 'Non-verbal magic...huh', that wasn't a skill he'd ever considered learning, but if Jake was teaching it then he must have thought it was important. Acknowledging both girls who had arrived before him with a cordial smile JC took his place in the room waiting for the lesson to start.

Rhian walked to class with a bit of pep in her step. Classes were still grueling, and the work load never ended, but a short weekend away from the castle had done her wonders. She knew she should feel bad for sneaking out of the castle, but seeing Conner for the first time in three months...it was worth all the detention they could ever throw at her. Returning, though, no one had mentioned a thing.

Entering the quiet classroom, she noticed only a few students had arrived so far. Interesting, she thought, seeing the desks and chairs around the room. Smiling openly at Jake, she offered a genuine, "Good morning, Professor." She hadn't seen the room set up this way in what felt like years. Since before Teagan had taught it.

Thought of her future stepmom led Rhian's mind to recent events, as her eyes landed on the other seventh year. Pausing for a moment, indecision crept through her mind as that now familiar warmth filled her. It was strange, knowing where it was coming from. Who it was coming from. The Gryffindor was still acclimating to the idea of bringing someone knew into her life, but she wouldn't let herself be afraid.

Taking a seat at the desk next to his, she set her bag down. A small smile pulled at her lips as she looked over to him. "Hey," she mouthed.

Mavis was too exhausted and seriously had to keep herself awake just to go to class. The Slytherin girl walked into DADA and saw a few other students there waiting for Jake to start the stupid class. The Slytherin went off to the side to be away from the others, she didn't like to really be in contact with others, especially the real young ones. Mavis now had to wait. Yay.

Jake's class always seemed to be a popular one for people to be at, Ryan has barely heard a bad thing about DADA being taught by Jake, he had heard how people were disappointed how DADA went from a hot Professor to Jake. Ryan didn't care, he just came to learn and try new things, that is why when he walked in, he wasn't surprised with the turn out. He waited for the class to begin.

Defence Against the Dark Arts was always popular, and it seemed today was no different. Josh had slipped in to the classroom just behind a Gryffindor boy, immediately moving away to stand on his own, taking up one of the desks away from the majority of the others and taking out his books.

Josh never really acknowledged anyone, but he looked towards the professor and once their eyes met, simply gave a small nod. The last lesson had been something Josh wanted to put behind him, but he wasn't sure whether the man at the front of the classroom was trustworthy enough for that.

But time would tell.

The Hufflepuff made her way towards the DADA room and wasn't surprised at the turn up when she arrived. Jake always had a lot of people in his classes and that was because he was a great Professor like every Professor there. Shiva smiled at everyone kindly and nodded in her Professor's direction. "Hi Jake" she greeted before she waited for the class to begin.

Desks. The first thing Joe noticed as he circled into the classroom, his bag already half-slung off his shoulder ready to drop to the floor, was the desks. Theory lessons were probably Joe's preferred ones; anything practical usually involved making a fool of himself at least twice before he got anything right, but with theory- well, Joe wasn't exactly a "coaster" where lessons were concerned, but they were easier on his mind.

The Hufflepuff nodded to his professor in polite acknowledgement, a small smile on his lips as he took a seat. He made sure to subtly isolate himself in his usual manner, one or two free desks on all sides, but he didn't completely put himself away from his classmates this time. It was small, but it was a step in the right direction.

He read the board, then, his eyes somewhat exhaustedly scanning the words written there. He felt his gut tighten; nonverbal magic. That couldn't go well at all - hell, verbal magic was hard enough for him to get his head around, let alone anything else.

Alyson walked into DADA and saw that there was a lot of people here, well not a lot lot but enough to make this class not boring. It never was but still. The Gryffindor looked at the board and saw their lesson for the day, she was glad to know that, that was the spell they'd be going over for that lesson. The blonde waited for Jake to further the instructions for them.

DADA was a good class for him as well, the Gryffindor didn't mind coming to this class one bit, it was a good class to be in and he was just glad that in his last year at Hogwarts he'd be learning about a lot of more things he probably hasn't read about, but being related to his older sister Hermione was kind of hard because she practically scowled him to read all of her books she got while she was in Hogwarts and would quiz him on it all the time.

It didn't take long for the class to fill up, Jake wasn't surprised, his roster was always full, but then he taught a core subject, so it was a given. With each person entering, Jake said hello, or some variation of the greeting, and waited until there seemed to be a lull in those coming. Checking his watch, Jake could see it was time to begin, so he picked up his wand and flicked it towards the door, not uttering a word and watching it carefully close itself.

"Right, good afternoon everyone, I hope you're not all in to the festive spirit too much yet, because today is going to require some concentration." He explained, standing up from his desk. The desks were throwing him off a little, but he would get used to it. "Today, we will be looking at non-verbal magic, can anyone tell me, apart from the obvious, what this entails? One point from each person. Just anything that you know about this branch of magic." He asked, looking around the class for answers.

Having been caught up in a conversation with a friend, Brooke had not realized the time until she saw some younger years running past her in an obvious panic. Glancing at her watch, her eyes went wide and she hurriedly ended the conversation and took off for the second floor. Knocking gently on the door, she entered and, to her surprise, found chairs and desks in the DADA class room. "I'm so sorry, Jake," she apologized, not able to believe she had been late to her favourite class.

Sliding into a seat next to Joe, she removed her parchment and her quil, wondering what the lesson was for this class. The last time they had desks, it had been a theoretical lesson, which was interesting, but Brooke loved practical work. Looking to the board, she couldn't help but grin as she saw the topic; non-verbal magic was something she enjoyed, mostly because it proved as a challenge for her. Unsure if their Professor had asked any question or given any instructions yet, she wrote the title on her parchment and waited to see what the other students did.

Jake began the class, and Lucy began to ponder the question as a Gryffindor entered the classroom. After sifting through the obvious, she decided to answer "Well, sometimes because a spell isn't spoken, it could potentially be less effective. I mean, depending on the situation. In something high-stress, or fast paced, while it's a lot more convenient, it could be slightly weaker," she answered.

Josh listened as the classes started, watching as his fellow Slytherin take the first shot at an answer. It was right, Josh knew that much, and non-verbal magic was something that he'd already conquered, a couple of years ago. He didn't always use it, however, because skill sets were something to be nurtured.

"Non verbal magic is most commonly used in duels between experienced wizards and witches. It gives the user an upper hand because the opponent doesn't know what spell is shooting towards them until it is possibly too late. Therefore, before entering such duels, if by choice, it would be wise to learn spells by their look as well as by incantation." Josh supplied in his usual lazy, bored tone.

Jake listened to the two answers supplied. "Very good, both of you receive five points for your house." Jake told them with a warm smile. Seeing as no one else looked to be stepping forward to give the answer a shot, Jake decided to press on.

"Okay, so today we are going to be simply looking at the levitating spell because of the complexity of non-verbal magic. Everyone in here should be more than competent in the use of Wingaurdium Levoisa, and therefore, you know the effects, and the level of concentration needed." Jake explained, flicking his own wand to make quills appear on each desk.

"Your task is to non-verbally make the quill float. You will not likely get this first time, so please don't get frustrated." Jake told them with a small smile. "Keep trying, see if you make progress. If you get the feather, I'll give you a book to try on."

Mavis wasn't sure if she could Non-verbally lift the quill up into the air but she was a Slytherin and they weren't weak, so Mavis was stuck trying to get the quill in the air. She took her wand out of her bag and pointed the tip at the quill and concentrated on lifting the feather up into the air. When nothing happened Mavis tried to get the magic to flow through her body and out the tip of the wand, but even when she tried, nothing happened. The quill stayed firmly on the desk and she was stuck trying again.

Josh had sat back after answering the question, barely listening to the oaf before them as he explained what they would be doing. This, was child's play and Josh could already tell this lesson was going to be a bore. Or, it was going to be boring but he could watch others fail miserably, maybe that could be the redeeming side of the work.

When a feather appeared before him, Josh slipped out his wand and did the swish and flick that was associated with the levitating charm. No words left his lips, but a moment later the feather was rising in the air. The Head Boy had a smug grin on his face as he put it back on to the table, looking to the professor who transfigured the feather in to a book a moment later.

Josh repeated with ease the non-verbal magic, spinning the book idly and putting it back down. Much too easy for the Slytherin, but he was glad of the rest.

Rhian looked around the class, feeling a sad pang in her chest. The lesson was interesting, she wouldn't deny that. But the fact that she was surrounded by practically strangers prevented her from enjoying it fully, something she usually had no issue with. Maybe it was senioritis, maybe more. But as she got ready to try the spell, she couldn't shake this feeling of longing for something else. Anything else.

The Gryffindor had never tried wordless magic before, but the spell was one she knew well. Tuning out the rest of the class, she pointed her wand at the feather and followed the familiar motions, speaking the word in her mind. Wingardium Leviosa.

No movement.

Her brow creased at the object, as if it was a misbehaving child. Yes, non-verbal magic was known to be extremely difficult to learn, but it was frustrating, not being able to do a spell she knew so well. A few more tries with similar methods were met with similar failure. Her lips pursed, she set her wand down to take a breather.

What does Teagan always say...something about... The young witch tried to remember their talks over the years. The Headmistress had always made it a point to leave certain things to Rhian's professors, believing in letting them educate as they were hired to, but they'd definitely discussed her previous and current lessons. Closing her eyes, she tried to recall a discussion that was floating at the back of her mind.

Magical core. Of course! They'd practiced Occlumency and other spells that relied more heavily on inward reflection that outward force. In all of those times, she'd been told to tap into her inner core of magic, the source of her power.

Keeping her eyes closed in an attempt to focus, pointing her wand at the feather was easy. Her lips moved in the motion of the words, though she didn't give voice to them. As her wand moved fluidly through the air, she could picture a small ball of energy, green and fluid in motion, pulsing and shooting the magic through her wand. She felt it then, a burst of power as if it was flowing through her fingertips. A soft gasp left her as her eyes shot open, landing on the floating feather before her. She grinned slowly at the dancing object.

Paying attention, it soon dawned on her that they had been asked about non-verbal Magic, based on the responses from her classmates. At the voice of an all-too familiar Slytherin, she shivered involuntarily - as she did whenever his soft tones reached her ears - and glanced over at Joe. She wasn't scared as much anymore, but there were just some things that stuck with you. Forcing her mind back to class, she was just in time to hear their instructions for that particular lesson. The spell was an easy one, a first year spell that she knew by heart. To perform it non-verbally, however, would be a different matter altogether. Her father had gone through the basics of it before; she knew and understood the theory and how it was supposed to work.

Focusing on the feather on her desk, she was briefly taken back to her first charms class and smiled at the memory. She had been so small, so naive back then. How she wished she could have remained that oblivious to things, but the reality of life was so much harsher than learning a first-year spell. Clearing her mind and brining herself back to the present, she stared at the feather for a few moments; picturing success always seemed to help her. Slipping out her wand, she pointed it at the object and focused on the spell. Wingardium leviosa! she thought, tracing the required shape in the air. There was no movement, and she gave a wry smile. Of course she hadn't expected anything to happen the first time round, but there was always that hopeful part of her that imagined perfection.

Closing her eyes momentarily, she refocused, opening them after a few moments. Shutting out any distractions, she repeated the previous steps, keeping her attention sorely on the feather. As soon as her wand finished the last flick, she saw the shaft of the feather twitch. With a grin, she took a deep breath and tried again; it rose ever so slightly before falling back noiselessly to the table. An unsuccessful attempt to most, it was only a positive thing in Brooke's mindset. Taking a short break, she ran though all the tips her father had given her when he had covered this topic. What she had not taken seriously was how tiring it would be at first; despite the fact that the spell was a basic one that almost all first years could perform, doing it without the use of a verbal spell required so much focus that she was already beginning to feel a slight strain - and she had only tried 3 times!

Snapping out of her thoughts, she shifted her attention back to the feather and continued trying. It was only on her fifth attempt that she managed to float it without problem; in her excitement of doing it, her concentration shifted and the feather floated slowly back down to the desk. Chuckling slightly to herself, she attempted it one more time, also successfully.

It was then that their Professor came around to congratulate her, and, after doing so, transformed the feather into a book. She thanked him with a smile and returned her focus to the new object. Now that she had already done it once, she knew how it was supposed to be done. Moving her wand in one smooth motion, she repeated the spell in her mind and watched with some satisfaction as the book rose a few centimetres before landing with a soft thud.

Of course, she thought, amused at her own lack of attention to detail. Books are heavier than feathers - much more so. It's exactly like doing the spell verbally, except without the spoken part. Luckily for her, nobody else could read her mind, so that embarrassing mistake of just having realized that was hers and hers alone to know. That didn't stop her from blushing ever so slightly as she smiled at her own stupidity. Indeed, it was the exact same spell as she had learnt in her first year, with the only difference being that there was no spell being spoken aloud. She had been doing this whole thing wrong! The way she had approached it was as though learning something new, when in actual fact, she was doing something that should be second nature, in a different manner.

With this in mind, she changed her perspective. Raising her wand and swishing it firmly through the air, she smiled before the spell was even complete; she knew she had gotten it. True enough, the book rose and stayed hovering in midair, following as she lifted her wand higher and higher before she gently lowered it back down to the table. The smile was now a grin as she waited a few moments before trying again. When the book again rose with ease, she knew that she had grasped the basic concept. From now on, all she needed to do was practise, be it with this spell, or others. Her ultimate goal, after all, was to perfect wand less magic, and what better place to start than with that of non-verbal?

Jake had watched people try the spell, moving towards those who had done well and turning the feather in to a book. Congratulating them, before moving off to help those who were struggling. It was nothing to be ashamed of, this branch of magic was difficult at best, of course.

As the class drew to an end, Jake clapped his hands, getting everyone's attention. "Okay ladies and gentlemen, thank you for today, you've all done well. If you haven't yet grasped the basics, please continue trying in your own time with the spell we've used today. Those of you who have been successful, great! Remember that this is a basic spell, so go through your classes from lower years and build up to the spells you've learnt this year, some will be tough, so don't get upset if you can't do it.

"If anyone wants extra help, please do come and see me! I'm here every Monday, so lunch time or after classes are okay to drop by! But, without further ado, class has finished - have a great Christmas, and I hope to see all of you in the new year!" Jake told them, waving them from the room as he vanished the feathers and books around the room.
