Professor Burke was sitting at her desk, a book in her hand. She was reading, knowing this would be a light week for her students. She had decorated the classroom with Christmas decorations in preparation for the upcoming Yule Ball and in an effort to keep her mind off of the anniversary of her daughter's death. Though, Kalif would be good for that this year.

As they filed in, she looked up and shut her book. Rising, she smiled, ready to speak. "I am so glad to tell you this week will be a light one. I want you to review. You have your OWLS to sit soon, and I want you to be ready for them. You may review here, or on your own. I leave that up to you. If you wish to practice any of the spells that you might see on the OWL, my room is at your disposal. You are all old enough to be trusted to use your time wisely. Good luck and I will see you next year! If you need anything, my office is always open."

She smiled, and then sat back down, and began to read again.



Homework: Attendance post is all that is really needed. Bonus points if you create an outline to review with or practice spells. Good luck on OWL!

Finally, the last lesson of the semester. The class would begin at any point, and the fifth year Ravenclaw prefect remained seated, with his head propped up on his hand, as he waited for the professors to start the lesson, if there would be one. To Viktor’s prediction, he was correct. Not much of a lesson, but a review period. Viktor opened his notes and started to study on his own, before long, he was finished with his studying.

Norton was very happy that he didn’t have any exams at the end of the first semester, though he knew it would mean he’d have a whole lot in the second semester, he knew that for now, he was enjoying the calm that would come with being able to have his exams in the next semester. He was looking forward to casually studying, but also making the most of the sunshine and the nice warm weather. He was very much looking forward to that. The hufflepuff had no plans to head home for the holidays either, though he knew that he probably should, he just couldn’t, and the fact he had a job would certainly help his story that he couldn’t go. In fact that was what he told Gilly was the reason, and either she didn’t care enough to argue with him, or she had believed him. Since they didn’t call it was more difficult to read her tone. The hufflepuff got the last of what he would need for this hopefully easy week and headed to class. Norton walked into the transfiguration classroom and took his usual spot in the room. His gaze shifted up to the front as the professor told them to just study. He was pretty pleased with this fact and was exceedingly happy to just get to studying and the occasional little practice. The fact they had only done one spell was to their own advantage, he could do little revisions of that with little bits of paper before just moving on to reading some more. He did this back and forth until the lesson wrapped up and he was able to leave the room.

Despite the fact that Marcos didn’t have any exams during this semester, the last week of classes was making him nervous. Marcos didn’t want to fail his OWLs, and he was trying to work as hard as he could, study more be better overall, but as it turned out, he did definitely find it difficult. Studying with Flavio helped but he needed to learn how to study on his own, he definitely wouldn’t be able to rely on him all the time, Flavio was graduating at the end of this year. Marcos knew that he just had to focus a little better on his education and put what he was learning with Flavio to some use when his brother wasn’t here. Marcos gathered up the notes he’d last been working on and put them as well as his books into his bag. The boy didn’t feel confident about any of the upcoming exams he had in the next semester but at the very least this week would give him an opportunity to revise. Marcos walked into the transfiguration classroom and took his usual spot in the room, he hoped they’d do a little more practicing of the spell that they’d been learning over the few weeks, but no such luck. He had to just study which wasn’t a bad thing, they had only done one lesson over this semester, but it wasn’t like they hadn’t done so many spells in the other years prior, so Marcos welcomed the opportunity. He began going over all that he had learned throughout the years at school. He spent time going through his old notes and organising them so he’d be ready when he needed to study. He worked hard for the time before the professor then dismissed them.

Kauri had hated everything about Transfiguration this year, an experience he had never had with any class before. He didn't like how it made him feel, and hoped that at least the worst was behind him with this subject. Taking a seat much nearer the back than he usually did, Kauri listened to Professor Burke, relieved that today was just going to be a review. He opted to leave the classroom and head to the library, where he spent the time going over his old Transfiguration notes and trying not to think about what he may be asked to do during the OWL.

The yule ball was around the corner, and for the first time Phoebe had a girlfriend for the event. Charlie wasn't really the type to enjoy dances too much, but they had met at the yule ball last year. Alice's meddling had caused them to talk, and now they were dating, something Alice reminded her of often. Phoebe wondered if it was too cheesy to do something for this anniversary, as it wasn't when they had actually started dating. But she doubted Charlie would mind too much, so she might as well try to think of something.

In between all that, she had lessons and exams to focus on too. The OWL year was definitely more challenging than the ones before it, though in Phoebe's opinion it still wasn't enough. She had enjoyed Transfiguration this year, liking that it was finally getting into some of the more powerful things. This final lesson they were just going to review, which was fine with Phoebe. She decided to stay in the classroom and go over the notes of this year. When the lesson was over, she headed out of the classroom.

Sophie had heard the OWL year would be difficult, and it was true. But because she was only taking classes she needed or those that interested her, it wasn't too bad. But her main focus was still on the paper. The first issue would be out soon, and she was terrified of something going wrong. Her first issue as editor had to be perfect, and if she could study less because she was making that happen, she was willing to make that sacrifice.

The final lessons of the semester usually involved studying and revising, and it seemed Transfiguration was no different. Sophie was happy for the chance, partly because practicing the same spell over and over was becoming a little boring to her. She went over her notes from this semester, and then started revising some of the things from last year. The OWL would cover everything from the past five years, so she had to make sure to repeat that material. When the lesson was over, Sophie made her way out of the classroom.
