Professor Styx was busy grading the last bits of essays he had left in the other years and then this years as well. He opened the doors with a wave of his hand, and the doors opened to allow the fifth years to enter the classroom. He waited until they all had arrived, and he did not bother looking up at them. He listened as he used nonverbal magic and wandless as well to shut the doors. Professor Styx informed the class shortly, "Study for the rest of the period, and be ready for your OWLs. You can stay here, or go to the library, but if you choose to remain here, then there will be silence." Professor Styx did not expect them to stay here to study, but he did expect silence as he finished up his work.

Assignment: Post attendance. Roleplaying the lesson. is optional

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 defence against the dark arts classroom and took his usual spot in the class. His gaze turned to the professor as the man fot started telling them to just study. He didn’t like studying and it felt dumb when they had a whole other semester before they even did one exam, but Norton did focus a little and studied for small bursts of time interlinked with short periods where he was just stare into space. Eventually, and thankfully the lesson eventually came to an end and Norton was able to pack up and leave the room. He was so happy he didn’t have to this class again until the following year.

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 defense against the dark arts class and took his usual spot in the room. His gaze shifted to the front of the room where the professor began his speech, or well, the short introduction to the lesson and telling them to study. He pulled his books towards him and began working away for the hour. Marcos could admit that flavio had taught him quite a lot of excellent methods to study, he still didn’t feel that good at it but he felt a little better. He worked away for the hour using the techniques and by the end he felt good about it. He packed up his things and left the room when they were supposed to.

Kauri was beginning to really feel the pressure of the OWLs approaching, feeling for the first time as if he might be taking too many classes. It had always been a lot of work to keep up with everything, but he was really starting to feel the strain with such an important exam approaching. There was so much to remember all at once, and it was exhausting. He was relieved at the thought that hopefully this week would be nothing but revision classes, and to his joy, Defense Against the Dark Arts didn't let him down. He opted to head to the library to study, not wanting to spend more time in Professor Styx's classroom than he had to, and spent the period in the library working to revise everything he could.

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 Defence Against the Dark Arts this semester, and wasn't too nervous about the OWL. She was still glad that they got some time to study for it, though, especially when Professor Styx allowed them to go to the library. Happy to escape the gloomy classroom, Phoebe took that opportunity and headed over to the library to revise for the OWL.
