Flynn pressed his lips together into a thin line as he gripped his wand a little tighter, trying to inconspicuously aim it at a first-year who happened to be sitting nearby. It was not like he could practice a cheering charm by himself, he needed some sort of target, willing or otherwise and this first year just happened to be closest to him. However, he wasn't having much luck with it, trying the incantation once again before quickly giving up with a huff when nothing happened. "Why does a spell need me to be happy for it to work? That's just stupid," he muttered angrily to himself as he slumped back in his seat tossing his wand down on the table in front of him and crossing his arms across his chest. Who needed to use a stupid cheering charm, anyway? Not him. There were so many cooler spells he could be using instead.

Ivy had been trying to study, but it was difficult for her to focus. She almost felt like she had been reading a bit too much lately, it was giving her a vague headache and she didn't feel very productive. She glanced around the room, spotting Flynn not too far away. He was looking grumpy as usual, and it seemed to Ivy like he had been aiming his wand at a young student. She raised her eyebrows, watching as he tossed his wand down on the table and crossed his arms. Before she could really think about it, she was up and heading over to him. "You alright?" She asked Flynn, deciding not to comment on the way he had pointed his wand at the first year. That was one way to get Flynn defensive and snapping at her, and there was already a pretty good chance he'd do that.

Magic was stupid. Okay, it wasn't, but he was just getting very annoyed at this stupid spell and really didn't see why he needed to be happy for it to work. It wasn't like this was transfiguration where he needed to picture what he wanted to happen or anything. Pressing his lips together, he frowned at where he had tossed his wand on the table, but then a familiar voice caught his attention and he glanced up at Ivy. Instinctively he opened his mouth to snap something, but he thought better of it and stopped, actually thinking for a moment. She was a nerd and probably knew about this stuff. "So, you'll know the answer to this," he easily assumed, turning in his seat to look at the girl better, "Why does the cheering charm need me to be happy for it to work? Isn't that a bit stupid? I can't use a spell if I'm not happy? Who came up with that logic?"

Ivy blinked when Flynn actually asked her a question. She paused, then frowned a bit at his question. "I... don't know." She had to admit, something she didn't like. "I got the same lecture you did, you know." She added, dropping into the seat next to him. "Maybe it works a bit like the Patronus Charm, which also has you focus on a happy memory." She said, shrugging a bit. "I suppose maybe there's... magic in that or something." She smiled a bit. "Were you trying to cheer up that first year?" She asked, raising her eyebrow a bit. It was less nefarious than what she had imagined he might be doing, but it was still questionable. She hesitated. "You can try it on me, if you need to practice." She said.

It was actually pretty surprising to hear the words 'I don't know' come out of Ivy Ashworth's mouth. Flynn would have thought she would have known the answer to his question as she clearly seemed to act as though she knew everything most of the time. "Yeah, but I wasn't actually paying attention to it," he said it as though that was obvious. Him actually paying attention in the classroom? Unlikely. Then he shrugged, glancing back over at the first year he had been trying to practice on. "I just needed someone and they were right there, so," he didn't see the harm in it, not like a cheering charm was going to hurt anyone. Then his gaze flickered back to the other Gryffindor, raising his brow as she actually offered to be a target for him to practice on. "I've sort of given up trying," he admitted with another small shrug, "I'm not in the mood to be happy, so it's not going to work anyway."
