Professor Burke had a huge cage of mice on her desk. She was sitting there next to them, tormenting them just a bit with her fingers. Her animagus form tended to take over when she was around mice. When the students finally were settled in, she looked up and nodded to them all. "Good morning class."

Professor Burke moved in front of the class and spoke. "Today we are going to work with mice. These are a bit more difficult, since you need to not only make them disappear, but keep track of them until they are gone. The spell is the same, but you need to pay more attention to the parts of the mouse. We want to get them all now don't we?"

She moved to the cage, then began to call them up one by one to pick out a mouse. "There are plenty here, please don't be too choosy. I have enough so if you wish to work with a second one, you may." Once everyone was seated again, she picked out her own mouse, and walked to the front of the class. Setting it down, she tapped her wand three times. "Evansesco!" The mouse disappeared mid stride as it tried to move away. "Ok. Get to work. I will be around to help if you need me."

Halloween had proved to as always be a lot of fun. The boy liked the celebration, well, he liked a lot of the celebrations that happened at the school. They were easy and fun, they didn’t tend to involve too much and he had found himself easily settling in to a routine of attending all of them despite the fact that even in this year he had a lot of work that needed to get done. He was an OWL student sure, but he knew that part of being a prefect and perhaps the goal towards the head boy position was in being an active part of the school, and he was willing and able to do whatever it might take for a chance at that position. He knew that keeping up his grades was important, important for more than one reason, but Simon knew it was important to be a good student all round. The teen was getting himself together for the day, having come in from another early morning run, which he found himself enjoying more and more. He had always liked doing it, but it was something he looked forward to, even if on some mornings when he felt tired and didn’t want to do it. He always felt better for it. The boy always showered after too, having a nice long shower always helped ease him into the rest of the day. He got ready, got his notes and his books. He got himself together for the day and then headed out of the dorm room to his first class of the day.
Simon walked into the transfiguration classroom and took his usual spot in the classroom. His gaze shifted up to the professor as the woman got started. He had figured what they would be doing within this lesson, given that they were doing the same spell as in the previous week. They were doing one spell all semester so it wasn’t that much of a surprise for him. The teen listened as the professor explained what they would be working on, mice. He took one when they were handed out and they were able to get started. The teen took his wand and remembered everything they had gone over, though happy for the reminder with the professor’s demonstration. He took the time to imagine the mouse disappearing and then pointed it at it, tapped three times and said, ”Evanesco,” the mouse didn’t disappear on the first go, but did on the second. He took a second mouse and did the spell again, practicing until the lesson was drawn to an end. He packed up his stuff and headed out of the room. It had been a good lesson and he was feeling pretty confident about the spell now, more so than he had before.

Shane had been quite tired the last few days, though this semester hadn’t been too bad, not in comparison to the last semester. Which hadn’t been bad, but a few things about it, had made it a little odd. This semester for him had been pretty easy, it had been easy for him to find an easy place in the school, find an easier rhythm than in his last school. The hufflepuff was getting himself together for the day, he had his homework sitting in front of him, bits and pieces that he hadn’t done the night before because he was feeling pretty tired. The boy found that though he was working harder in his classes, it didn’t make everything about it easier. He still struggled to find the motivation for things. The teen finished off the homework as he was getting ready, he was able to write a few sentences as he got himself together, putting on his uniform, gathering up what he would need and when he was ready he was able to just quickly finish off the last few sentences before he headed out of the room and to his class of the day, keen to just get started on the day because then the sooner it would end.
Shane walked into the transfiguration classroom and took his usual spot in the class. His gaze shifted up to the professor as the woman got started, telling them that they would be doing the same spell as the weeks prior but this time they would be doing it on mice. This wasn’t too big of a deal, he hadn’t minded doing the spell on anything, so why would anyone mind doing it on mice. He listened to the professor’s light instructions before letting them get started. He nodded slightly and took a mouse when it was handed to him. He held it lightly in his hands for a few moments before just grabbed his wand and getting started on the spell. It took his a few tries to actually get it but in the end he did of course get it. He took the time to practice the spell again with a second mouse and then the class was brought to an end. He packed up his things and headed out of the room. He liked doing that spell, he liked making things vanish and doing the transfiguration spells.

Even without dressing up, Charlie had had a good time at Halloween, and the good mood had stuck with her all week. Phoebe had kept her costume quite simple as well, and it had been nice to just spend time together and not be stared at by other people. Though Charlie was feeling quite good, she was still finding the load of schoolwork quite a lot, and felt like she had hardly any free time anymore. Wondering how on earth other people did this all the time kept Charlie from wondering how she was possibly going to keep this up through NEWTs.

Charlie had enjoyed Transfiguration so far at least, and it was nice to be learning a skill she could easily see the usefulness of. Wondering what they would be doing this week, Charlie took her usual seat at the back of the classroom, though as soon as she looked up at the professor's desk Charlie realised exactly what they were doing. It seemed a bit cruel, to practice on something as intelligent as a mouse, but when the time came, Charlie raised her wand, keeping the mouse still with one hand as she cast the spell. It took a couple of tries this time, but Charlie got it eventually, making her first mouse vanish entirely. Glancing at the rest of the cage, Charlie decided she wasn't going to practice again, satisfied enough that she had been able to cast the spell successfully. It felt a bit ghoulish to do it again just for fun. With the work done, Charlie packed her things up and headed out of the classroom.
