Professor Harrington found herself waiting in the Astronomy tower with her favorite jacket on, she hoped all the students came prepared for this week. They were heading out of the castle once again and winter was approaching fast as they headed towards April. Once the students were in the room she began the lesson. "Good Evening, I hope you all are excited, now last week we took a look up close at asteroids. This week we are going to see what happens when those bodies, typically smaller than asteroids, come through the atmosphere and burn up," Sarah said to the students hoping they were all prepared for the weather outside.

"Now gather around and we will pop off to our location for this evening," Sarah said ushering the students around a telescope that would take them to a location away from all other humans and creatures to see the meteor shower. "Now don't wander off from here, I'll be talking about the meteors while we watch them come through the sky," Sarah said showing the students to a spot she had been to earlier in the day that had blankets across the ground for the students to sit on and small lanterns she light with a flick of her wand so they could take notes.

"Now, meteors are typically small pieces that broke off of asteroids when two asteroids hit each other up in the belt we were in last week. Now, as they approach the Earth, those little pieces of rock will be sucked in by the gravity and they will burn upon entry into the atmosphere." Looking up she could see the first few streaks of light signalling the start of the meteor shower. "The common name for these are shooting stars. The sizes of these rocks can be as small as 10cm to several meteors. The light is produced from heat of the pressure entering the atmosphere." Professor Harrington said as the students got to enjoy the show in the heaven. She smiled as they all enjoyed the brilliant streaks, pointing out as various ones came into view.

"Astronomy Masters have been protecting the Earth for hundreds of years, wizards such as the Lapp Shamans near the North pole have used their skills to destroy and also force meteors away from Earth." They stayed for another 30 minutes while the meteor shower continued and the students got to watch the show. She always loved staring up into the heavens, sometimes she would with her two young girls, not teaching them anything, but just stare and see what they saw in the sky. "Now let's head back students!" She said as the show died down. "No homework this week, but take care to study in preparation for your exams coming up!" She said over the loud noise of the students bustling around the room getting ready to leave and warming up.

This Week:

Vader had managed to help some of his stress, it was odd, but he knew that it hadn’t really helped it a lot, but it had done a little for it to feel a little better, for him to feel a little better. It wasn’t the easiest task and Vader had fumbled his way through it, but now he was feeling a little better, he felt more comfortable, he felt happier and he was looking forward to being able to the week. He was still stressed about other things and his sleep was still comparatively awful but it was better than the week before and this was something he was pretty pleased about. It meant that things were fractionally better and that maybe his stress wasn’t too bad, his sleeplessness would be dealable without him having to do much. Without him having to go out of his way. He wouldn’t need to go back to the doctor and he would be just fine. The gryffindor was getting himself together for the day ahead, gathering his notes and books and getting all of the other things he would need for class before heading to the class. Vader walked into the astronomy class and took his usual spot in the room. He took out his books and notes and placed them down in front of him, though as the professor began speaking it was clear he wouldn’t really need them. Instead of staying in the room they all grabbed the portkey and they were to a new location so that they could see the meteor shower. He listened as the professor gave them a little information about them. He listened a long, but he was mostly watching the night sky. He spotted a few meteors in the shower and felt pretty pleased to have seen them. After about thirty minutes the professor gathered them up and they were brought back to school, thankfully to be dismissed with no homework.

This week had been a bit, strange, for the Gryffindor who was currently trying to pull down the sleeves of his robes towards his wrist. How was this even possible? He must have had a very sudden growth spurt because no matter what he wore it didn't seem to fit him well, everything hanging at an awkward angle off his body. Even his favourite shirts seemed a little off, hanging higher than they usually did. It was frustrating and a bit embarrassing actually. Doing his best to stop fiddling with it, glad they were at least nearly at the end of the semester, he had his hood up as he went to class, trying not to catch anyone's eye. He'd been in a pretty peaceful mood since the duels despite his complete disqualification so early on. Elio had decided not to get hung up on it though, he'd always have next year to try again. For now he was just going to focus on what he had to do.

Elio was always excited for Astronomy, because despite the fact they were taking time to be more independent, it was the one class that he got to spend with Rowan. Of course as always he brought their blanket, something he would live at the end of his bed until he chose to hug at night when he was especially missing Rowan, although he hadn't told the other guys in his room that. When Rowan arrived and took a seat beside him, he wrapped his arms over her shoulder, planting a kiss on her cheek. This was the class that he could be himself with her in and he very much intended to make the most of it. The professor spent most of the time giving them another lectures about shooting stars, and while Elio was half paying attention, the majority of his focus was on the Gryffindor beside him. It was a good job they'd chosen now to be more independent really or he'd never study enough for the exams. By the time the lecture came to an end his head was on her shoulder and he was half asleep, but jolted awake towards the end and pretended to be writing a few things down. Once they were dismissed he made sure to accompany Ro back to the common room too, just because he wanted to make sure she got there safety, of course.

The school year was coming to an end and honestly, Rowan was feeling incredibly nauseous about the whole thing. She and Elsie hadn't even practised today, they'd just sat and talked about everything before they realised they needed to go back to their dorms and then up to the Astronomy tower for class. Elsie had elected not to go tonight though, as she wasn't feeling the best and so Rowan had headed up to the towers alone. This was a bit strange for her as she was used to Elio being with her, but he was there, as always, ready with the blanket in his arms for them. She smiled as he wrapped his arms around her and kissed her cheek. She happily leaned into him. Not much caring for what was happening around them or anything else. She was a bit tired, as she always was, but she knew she was okay when she was beside Elio. She drifted in and out of the lecture as it was given and she wasn't quite sure she was paying enough attention of any of this came up on the exam, but, she was happy enough as it was with her head on Elio's shoulder, or her face buried in his neck. He jolted awake at the end of the lesson, but she took a few more moments to get her head back on straight. They were dismissed and Rowan drowsily allowed Elio to essentially walk her to her door like a gentleman before she passed out on her bed.​
