Professor Styx decided that she was going to work a bit of conjuring today for her class, since they would be working with those next year. As they all sat down, she rose from her seat, walking to the front of the class. "Welcome. We are going to be working with a bit more difficult animal today." She looked at the class with a smirk, then quickly waved her wand, conjuring up a duck on the desk of a very surprised student. "Ducks!" she said, picking up the animal. "Now, I will conjure up your duck for you when we are ready. Conjuring will be the type of spell you will learn about next year. I didn't want to have a sord of mallards running around the room on us."

As she set the duck in her hands back down, it began to wander around the room. She tapped the air in front of her, and spoke the spell. The duck disappeared just as quickly as it had appeared. "Alright. Now do remember that with the right amount of concentration. You don't have to be right on top of your duck. Experiment with moving around the room. I will conjure you a new one if you wish to try again as well. Now if you all will stand up, we can get started."

Once the students were up, she flicked her wand and moved the desks to the side of the room and then with another quick flick, a sord of mallards were in the open area. "Go to it!" she saint d with a smile, stepping back to watch the mayhem commence.


Homework:RP attendance. Completing the lesson is optional. Have fun with your duck! I am looking forward to reading your responses.

Rowan wasn't sure what she'd walked into, but it was absolute chaos. She'd run a little late of the class that morning, she'd woken up late and so everything after that had just taken a bit more time. Getting dressed, doing her hair, breakfast, it was such a pain, next time she was just going to have to sleep on the sofa since she clearly couldn't be trusted to wake herself up in the morning, what a mess. To walk into class and see a bunch of ducks running about the room though? Rowan had to rub her eyes to make sure she'd actually woken up and this wasn't some strange dream, but no, the ducks were quacking and moving around and Rowan laughed as she saw them, before she realised she was going to have to vanish one of them and the laughter instantly faded. That had to be why they were there, running about. They were supposed to catch them and vanish them. Catch and kill effectively. Might as well have just signed a waiver before she walked in, all the murdering that went on in this castle. She closed her eyes and sighed before heading into the trenches. Maybe she would be lucky and these little duckies didn't have real lives outside of this, they weren't going to be missed by their little Duckie friends or their little Duckie families. Hopefully, they were effectively dead already, that was what she was going to tell herself anyway, only way she was going to get through it. She headed into the fray and grabbed a duck in her arms, sitting on her knees as she laughed, snuggling it. As she did so though, she couldn't help but feel a bit of a connection with the duck and didn't want to vanish it. It certainly felt like a real duck that would have friends and family. With all the commotion going on, Rowan looked around, spotting Elio and glanced down at the duck before dashing out of the room to save her new friend.​

Elio had been worried about Rowan when he arrived as she wasn’t here either. He’d waited a little while for her in the common room, but figured either she was already in class or had taken a detour, and so the fifth year had to start the lesson sat by himself. Elio hadn’t really ever been introduced to many animals, at least not before he’d started taking Care of Magical Creatures. He was a little wary as this professor was summing the large winged bird thing right in front of their eyes, and the Gryffindor was on edge as soon as the ducks began to walk around the room. They looked so unpredictable, which usually Elio liked, but not when it had a beak bigger than his fingers. Elio shot out of his chair when the professor conjured his duck in front of him, grabbing his wand and staring at it as it began to waddle around. He noticed Rowan had seemed to make friends with her duck and was cuddling it, but there was no way Elio was going anywhere near it. He practised the spell quickly, trying to vanish the duck before it could move but he was too slow. The ducks attention was fixed on the fifth year, and the more Elio started to back up, the faster the duck was coming at him. It was only when Elios back hit the wall that he remembered his wand, and pointing it at the duck that was running at him, he successfully managed to get it to disappear moments before it reached it. He breathed a sigh of relief, looking around and hoping he wasn’t the only one experiencing a duck chase.

It was quite surprising to Vader that his sleep had somewhat managed to get worse, despite there being no exams at the end of the semester, there were just a number of other worries that plagued him. Thankfully he did have Ava once again and he was managing a little better to take care of himself, but that wasn’t really saying much. It then didn’t help that he knew he was still lying to her about things, that he wasn’t being honest and given that had caused such a fight before he knew it was only a matter of time before she realised once and for all that he wasn’t worth it. The gryffindor knew he could just be honest, he knew exactly the words he was supposed to say but still he couldn’t do it. No matter how much easier it would likely make his life, every time he thought about it, his mind clouded with those memories and all he wanted was to hide away. The gryffindor pushed those thoughts aside, he knew he had to get passed it, telling Ava would help probably but he couldn’t. Vader got his things together and put what he needed for the day in his bag before heading out the door.
Vader walked into the transfiguration classroom and took his usual spot in the room. He wasn’t feeling nearly as energetic as he had in the previous lesson, the weight of the end of term, though examless still loomed heavily and he knew he needed to break up with Pho, but with the death of her step mother, he didn’t think it was the right time. The gryffindor pushed those things out of his mind as the professor got started. He tiredly looked towards her and nodded, ducks. Well that would be noisey, up until they all were vanished. He listened as she gave them the same explanation for the other animals and then let them get started. He let the professor summon the ducks and then grabbed one. He took it to his desk and then thought about the spell, it was a little cruel to make these creatures appear for them to just vanish again. The gryffindor tapped three times with his wand and said, ”Evanesco,” and the duck vanished. He was able to practice a few more times before the lesson was wrapped up he was able to leave the room.

The Ravenclaw fifth year could barely believe that it was within the last couple of lessons before they would go on holidays. Though, the OWLs would be that much on them as well. Elena Cardosi knew that she would have to do well to achieve her goals. She was fairly determined in everything she did, which her friends would tell her. Even her boyfriend would tell her that. Elena made her way to the classroom, once more arriving before Elias. It was typical that she was before him. Elena shook her head and sat down at her seat. Before long, Elias sat down next to her. She reached over and gave his hand a squeeze before the lesson began.

The moment that Professor Styx conjured a duck into the classroom, Elena's eyes widened. As soon as she ended up with her own duck, she looked down at her own before she shrugged and rolled her eyes. She flourished her wand before she held it at her side. Elena hoped that it would run around so that she could make it vanish. Elena would imagine using someone as a target, envision the duck as the person before she would make it vanish. She let it walk around her desk as she stood up and moved over to the side. Elena aimed and intoned, "Evanesco!" With a loud quack, the duck was gone. Elena leaned against her desk before she noticed that there were feathers where the duck had been. There were no missing limps or blood, just feathers left behind. At least the duck didn't die painfully.

Jigoku Arai looked in the mirror at his hair. The red faded more into a pink color. Oh well. Goku thought that it looked nice, but he wondered if he should change it next year. He’ll have to see. The Slytherin got ready for his next class, as he prepared himself to become an Auror. He was getting there, which meant that he was that much closer. The OWLs were on their way, and Goku was still training the best he could to become a black belt. He was on his way. Goku grabbed his things and walked from the dungeons and to his next class. He eventually made it and found his seat, looking at his brother with a soft sigh.

A difficult animal? Goku wondered just how difficult it would be. Before he knew it, the professor waved her wand, and then a duck appeared on her desk. He convinced himself that since the duck was conjured, it was not a real animal. They were just spells. They were made to think and act like ducks, but it wasn't. It was enough to settle his nerves. He smiled a bit, and then looked around when everyone had a duck. His hopped off of the desk, and grabbing his wand, he ran after it. The duck slowed down and then he exclaimed, "Evanesco!" The duck vanished, leaving no feathers or body parts behind. He sighed and caught his breath. He waited around before they were free to leave, and he left.

Alice was a little alarmed by how quickly the end of the semester was approaching. She had no exams before the Christmas break, but that didn't mean she didn't have to study. Alice knew from her older sisters that she had to work hard to get a good grade on her OWLs, just as they had done. At least, Phoebe had. Alice was planning to ask the study group to meet again, but she didn't know what a good time would be. Everyone seemed so busy, and Alice didn't want to add to that, especially not with something that was supposed to be something to lighten the load. The girl took her seat in the Transfiguration classroom, feeling like she knew what to expect from this class today. She winced a little at the sight of the duck, as she felt bad about having to vanish it. She had tried to research a bit about it, but hadn't gotten much answer on why this was allowed while human vanishing was forbidden. It felt cruel to vanish animals for practice, but she knew that it was probably something the headmistress had allowed long ago. She practiced the spell until one duck had vanished, and then she was glad she didn't have to do it again. Alice left the classroom feeling sad, and she hoped that they wouldn't have to vanish something even bigger next week.
