DADA Second Years, Lesson Six

Lydia sat at her desk and sipped on a mug of ceylon tea. A pile of papers stacked up in front of her, in fact, she was already writing the exams. However, she had enchanted the parchment so no curious student could peek at its contents. Her Everlasting Quill was at the ready, nearly the same shade as her plum-colored robes. Lydia looked up from her desk when it was time for class to start.

“Today’s lesson will be a free period. You may choose to stay and practice your wandwork, or leave to study for the exam. Keep in mind that there will be both practical and written portions of the test. You will partner with another student for the portion that involves spell-casting.”

Lydia waved her wand at the blackboard. Silvery writing illuminated the surface. “I expect you to know the following for the upcoming exam. If you have any questions now or before the exam, please don’t hesitate to see me. My office hours will be extended this week.”

Exam review
  • Definition of a jinx, hex, and curse and differences between each
  • Explain why we learn about prank-like jinxes
  • Name and effects of jinxes practiced in class
    • Jelly Legs Jinx
    • Trip Jinx
    • Knee-Reversing Hex (you are not required to master this for the practical exam)
  • Applicable spells for self-defense (such as the counter-charm (Finite) or the Shield Charm (Protego)
  • Name and effects of jinxes demonstrated by Professor Drage and Professor Haden
    • Stinging Jinx
    • Ear Leeks Jinx
    • Antler Jinx
    • Bat-Bogey Hex


Lydia then dismissed the class to do as they wished. She knew some students would abuse the study hour, but that was their choice. The professor supervised the students who stayed behind to practice and made herself available to answer any questions.

Roleplay the lesson. A paragraph should be sufficient. If you wish for your student to interact with the professor, tag me and I will do my best to respond.

Rhys was already prepared for the lesson to be study time, bringing all of his notes from the previous lesson as well as his textbook to study from. But it seemed there was no point in that as they were told they could leave to study or remain behind to practice spellwork. Having bothered to bring all his things, he decided on the theory side of things, quickly standing up again and leaving the classroom again to head to the library to study in peace for the upcoming exam.

Though DADA had been her favorite subject this semester, Celia was glad to hear that today would be a free period. She was kind of over her classes at this point. Or, to be more accurate, she was over Hogwarts. The past semester hadn't been great, her disqualification from the dueling tournament overshadowing any of her other successes, and she was more than ready to go home.

Celia listened as Professor Drage covered the material they needed to know for the exam. She was pretty sure she had already mastered everything on that list, but she copied it down all the same. When she was done, she decided to partner up with one of her classmates and practice the spells. She was still a bit more aggressive in her spellcasting than was probably necessary. After getting knocked out of the tournament, she had been looking for every opportunity to prove herself, and that included informal practices during DADA class.

The end of the year was here. Zee was quite happy about it. Although she had really enjoyed most of her lessons this year, she was ready for a much needed break. At least at home she could practice all the sports her heart desired. No school classes or worst homework assignments would get in the way. It was going to be a nice relief. But first she had to get through the last week of classes and the exams. Honestly Zee wasn't too worried. She knew she had it in her and she didn't even have to be a kiss up like her sister.

Zephryn entered the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom, definitely a little upset that this class was coming to an end. Prank Like Jinxes had been an amazing time, one of her more practical lessons. She was a little disappointed she couldn't use magic outside of school to practice them on her sister during break. Only one set back of going back home though. The pros did outweigh the cons in her mind.

Zee took her seat in the classroom, wondering if they would be practicing one of the cool jinxes they had saw last week. To her disappointment it was just a review lesson. Of course Zee did not want to waste her time studying the theory. Luckily some of her classmates wanted to practice the jinxes. She found a partner, pairing up with one of the few students who stayed. The young Gryffindor girl took out her wand and began to 'duel' well more practice. She continued to practice her wand work for the rest of the lesson. When the time was up, Zee actually thanked her partner, feeling even more confident than before. She grabbed her things and left the classroom.

Kita wanted to just study. She had no desire to go to class. It was actually ridiculous how little time she had to study with professors still giving homework. It was annoying to no end to the young Slytherin. It was almost difficult to force a smile on her face as she entered the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom. She took a seat in the front row. She did not unpack her bag. She wasn't quite sure what the professor had in mind after the duel shown the previous lesson. Maybe they would be dueling other students. That, at least, wasn't a complete waste of time. Although something even better happened, the professor announced a free period. Kita smiled, really smiled at this. Now that was a professor that was using her head. Of course Kita did not bother to stick around in the classroom. She was much more efficient studying on her own. She swung her bag over her shoulder and just left the classroom.
