"Good morning class! Almost at the end of term, nervous yet?" Misha gave a light laugh. While he was laughing about this now, he remembered clearly about what his OWLs were like. Frantic studying in the hope of remembering at least something. Anything. "As you can see, another quiz sits upon your table. Closed book, and begin!" He moved round his table and sat on the chair, propping his feet up onto the table, while taking a sip of his tea.

1. What does the Confundus Charm do?

2. What does the Drought Charm do?

3. What does Descendo do?

4. What does the Bubblehead Charm do?
"For this lesson, we need to head to a bigger, and more empty classroom. So, come on" He ushered the students out. He seemed to do a lot of that. He moved to the front of the students and lead them to the empty but large classroom at the end of the first floor. He got all the students inside, before standing at the front. For this he had made the room have sufficient light, so that everyone could see, all the desks were to the side of the room, with a vine, rope and chains wrapped around the chairs that were scattered about the room. "Today, fifth years, we will be covering Diffindo- the severing Charm. With this charm you can cut virtually anything that is not magically protected. Chains, ropes, what have you- I've even heard of students being able to replace much more interesting books with the cover of an undesirable textbook. In short, Diffindo cuts things. The efficiency with which you cut will depend on the amount of energy put into the spell and of course pronunciation and wand movement."

Unlike most other lessons, Misha chose to only briefly demonstrate what he meant, using the simple vine, flicking the wand and pronouncing the spell clearly so everyone would see. The vine cut itself apart perfectly. "Using regular wand movement and correct pronunciation you should be able to get the hang of this Charm quickly. You may leave when you have severed three things in total, a vine, a bit of rope, and a length of chain. I recommend starting with the vine and finish with the chain. If you happen to accidentally cut the chairs, I may count it as one of the three things. Begin!"



-RP the lesson. Quiz is optional

Vegeta Arai was still waiting for an epiphany to come to him to see what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. What if it never came to him? The Gryffindor was very worried about it. Vegeta held his journal close to him as he walked down the stairs to the next class he was due in. Vegeta was taking his time since he left a little earlier than expected. Vegeta was still avoiding everyone he could, mainly because he needed to make sure that he was better, before looking into actually trying to make some friends. He was just about there. Vegeta arrived to the classroom, and sat down in his chair. They were told a greeting, and they could also get started on a quiz. Vegeta got out his ink, quill and he got started on the quiz. The quiz itself seemed easy because the spells were learned just last year.

They were informed that they were moving to another classroom to practice the spell that they were learning today. He had no objections anyway. He gathered his things up and he walked over to the other classroom so that he could be with his peers and learning whatever it was that they could. Today it was the severing charm, Diffindo. That charm seemed cool. His eyes looked around to see the chairs with chains, vines and ropes wrapped around them. Vegeta practiced, cutting the vine which was easier. The rope took two times to get it done anyway. However when he had gotten the chain severed, he managed to sever it and then it sliced the chair too. Vegeta flinched and hoped that he would not get a bad grade for that. He left as soon as they were able to.

Trophy Showcase:
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. Of course the first thing that they had to do was finish the quiz, which was rather simple to do. She handed it in when she was finished with her quiz confident that she did well on it.

They were going out of the classroom too, so that was good. They were led outside the classroom only to enter another, where there were chairs around intertwined with a vine, a rope and a chain. They were also told on how to do it, and Elena remembered it in her head. She walked over to her own chair, before she flourished her wand from within her robes. She pointed at the vine before she intoned the spell. The vine was severed and it fell from the chair in two even pieces. Turning her wand to the rope, intoned the spell and the rope fell, though the slice was not as clean as the vine. Elena chanted to the chain, and it was not powerful enough. Groaning, she used as much power as she could. Only this time, the chain was severed. The chair had a bit of a cut in it, but Elena thought that was fine.

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. They were handed out another quiz which the Slytherin got out his ink, parchment and quill. He got started on the quiz which was over spells learned in the previous year, so it was really easy review for his.

Goku finished up the quiz and he waited for the professor to collect them up. Once Professor Haden had, they were told that they needed to head to a bigger and more empty classroom. That made his look at him strange but said nothing over it. He got up with the other fifth years and he entered the empty classroom, decorated with chairs. He looked around to see that there were plenty of them too. The day was going to be spend over Diffindo. It was the charm that severed. They had to sever the chain, rope and vine that covered the chairs. So he would have to get started. Flourishing his wand, he used the spell multiple times, to sever through the chain, the rope and the vine. The chain took the longest, but he wanted that one done first. As soon as that one was done, the other two were easy. He left as soon as he was able to without homework.

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 charms classroom and took his seat in the room. He didn’t much appreciate the professor once again highlighting that the exams were close. He certainly was stressed enough he wasn’t sure he could say the same about the others. He took the quiz as the professor handed them out and began answering it. It wasn’t too difficult to do, it wasn’t a bad quiz, he got it done pretty quickly but it didn’t mean he really wanted to do it. He disliked the quizzes but likely just because he’d been so tired the last few weeks that it was difficult to get motivated to do that kind of work. The gryffindor was happier when the quizzes were gathered in and they were brought to another classroom to go over the spell. He was pretty pleased about it. The gryffindor watched and listened as the professor demonstrated the spell and then let them get to work. He started with the vine, he had to cast it a few times before it worked and then he moved on to the rope, he had to cast this a few times too but a few less that the vine, and then again with the chain, though it was clearly the sturdiest of the three, he made quick work of cutting this down. With that done, it wasn’t long till the professor brought the lesson to an end and he was able to grab his things and leave the room.

Trophy Showcase:
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 had a smile on his face when he arrived in Charms, taking a seat by himself near the back so that he could work in peace. He was happy that Rowan was beginning to get on with some of the other students, and now that they had a plan in place it was easily to sit back and busy himself with his own hobbies for a while. If she needed him he was always right there, but otherwise he just had his eyes on his work. Elio daren't look across the room in case a Hufflepuff was looking in his direction either. Hearing that they were learning Diffindo, Elio shifted a little uncomfortably in his seat, a tingle running down his arm as he tried to ignore that it had been used against him once and he'd not managed to block it. It certainly did do what it said on the tin. He followed the others to a classroom that had many things that they were able to slice, although he really didn't want to use this particular spell. Not wanting to fail however, he found some rope that looked pretty tough, making sure that the professor was watching as he quietly cast the spell, slicing it immediately. There. Done. He looked around at the others who were cutting three things rather than just one. He glared at Vegeta from across the room, who had certainly calmed down in recent weeks although he wasn't going to forget what he'd done. Forget it. He wasn't doing three things with this stupid spell. If the professor wanted to mark him down for only doing one then so be it. Elio knew he could do it and he didn't need a letter to prove it, but it was one spell that he wasn't playing around with and grabbing his things he left the room.

Chrys walked into Charms and immediately noticed Elio. He was about to head over, except Rowan immediately grabbed his jacket and forced him next to her. He rolled his eyes and pouted at her, sighing as he glanced over his shoulder at Elio. Each time he did so, Rowan forced his eyes back to the front until he got the message. Okay, no looking at Elio. Fine. He paid attention to the rest of the class. He could almost feel Rowan watching him to make sure he actually paid attention to what was going on. Probably for the best, he couldn't be trusted, he knew that. They had to move to a bigger classroom apparently and Chrys followed the rest of the class, he noticed Rowan stayed behind him to make sure he was actually doing as told and he rolled his eyes at her. "Come on, don't be such a spoilsport," he whined to her as she ignored him. Once they got to the classroom, Chrys was curious about Diffindo, since it wasn't a spell he'd used at all. He vaguely remembered it being used on Rowan though, so knew she was intimately aware of it. He also vaguely remembered Elio's scar that he'd seen, which he was sure was from Diffindo, though he hadn't actually asked. Still, interesting. He listened to the applications of Diffindo. He set about getting to know the spell, using it to sever the vines, the rope and then the chains. The class soon ended and Chrys quickly escaped the room before Rowan could get her hands on him.​

Elsie sat in charms with her head on the desk. Rowan was sitting with Chrys and Elsie was sitting just in front of Elio, though she just didn't have the energy to turn and wave or smile or anything. She'd pulled a muscle in her side whilst dancing last night and had been in pain ever since. She knew she should have gone to the hospital wing, but she'd been up out of hours when she shouldn't have been and she didn't want to get into trouble for that, so she hadn't told anyone. She would find Agnes later and see if she could steal her some pain relief because honestly it really did hurt and she couldn't think of how to make it stop. She mostly sat awkwardly in her chair, because moving at all made breathing hurt. She didn't think she'd cracked a rib, she certainly hoped not or she'd probably have to get more than Aggie's help. Yeah, that would be a pain. She moved with the class when they were told they would need to go to the other class, though she held her side in agony the whole way. Every time she stretched, she felt he stiff muscles stretch and contract and she listened to the Professor as he talked about Diffindo. It was certainly a spell, and it was a pretty good spell too. She spent the rest of the class practising by cutting vines, rope and chains until the class was finished when she went in search of Agnes.​

Rowan grabbed Chrys as soon as he walked into the room. There was no real reason why she just didn't trust him. She didn't look over her shoulder at Elio either, because every time she did she was sure she was going to laugh at him. The way his clothes just didn't seem to fit right. She was going to have to ask if he wanted help, she was a decent seamstress if she did say so herself, given the twins often had to make costumes for dance class and they would do it together with their mother. She did miss that actually. The quality time they spent making it all the muggle way. Just so they could do it together and there would be imperfections. It was fun. She looked up as she realised they were going to be moving to another room and she made sure that Chrys was in front of her as they moved. She didn't want him sneaking off to Elio before she had a chance to talk to him. She also needed to make sure she didn't forget she was helping Elsie after class too, since she knew they were still a bit behind on that recital. She listened as the Professor explained about Diffindo. She knew that spell only too well, given it had been used against her too many times during her duel, so she was absolutely convinced that Ava girl wanted her dead honestly. She stayed long enough to practice the spell, cutting through the vines easily, but finding the rope and the chains to be more difficult. Funny, it sure seemed to slice through her arm just fine.​

Alice hadn't felt much like herself lately, and she was having trouble being cheerful. It felt like her friends had been busy with their own drama, and Alice was starting to wonder if she was easy to ignore now that she wasn't too energetic. She tried to focus on her studies for now, though she wasn't entirely sure if she would still hold the study group. She had no idea if anyone would miss it if she didn't. They would probably be fine without it too.

Alice quietly found her seat in the Charms classroom, staying in the background for now. There was another quiz on her table, and Alice quickly filled it in. After that, they headed to a bigger classroom to practice the spell they would learn today. That spell was Diffindo, which was a severing Charm. The professor told them they could cut basically anything with it. The professor told them that the efficiency depended on how much energy they put into the spell. It was soon time for them to start, and Alice practiced the spell on vine, rope, and then chain. The chain was very difficult, but she managed it in the end. Alice left the classroom once she had managed all three.

Abian was enjoying his fifth year a lot. He'd enjoyed hanging out with Emily, and could mostly ignore that there was someone else he liked as well. He liked Emily a lot, and that was what mattered. She was an awesome girlfriend, and the two of them were very similar. He was a little sad the Quidditch season was over now, but he would cheer for Slytherin against the foreign school. He was a little sad he couldn't cheer for Jacob instead, but at maybe they could meet up in the stands now.

The Hufflepuff made his way to the Charms classroom and took his seat. He was not surprised at all to see another quiz on his desk, and he filled in the answers. This one was definitely a little more difficult than the previous ones, and he had to think a bit about some of the answers. After the quiz, they headed to a different classroom for the spell they were going to learn today. The spell was diffindo, and while it sounded like it could be kind of dangerous, Abian was interested to learn more about it. He watched the professor demonstrate the spell, then got to work himself. It took him a while, and he struggled a bit, but in the end he managed to cut three different things with the spell. Abian was tired and wanted a snack, so he was glad when the lesson was over.
