Professor Sword sat behind her desk, sipping a cup of tea. Once all the students had taken their seats, Lillian stood again and walked to the front of her desk. "Have any of you heard of 'the boy who lived'?" Many hands went up and she continued. "Who can tell me the name of this person?" She looked around, and then called on a student sitting in the front row. "Yes?" The student put their hand down. "Harry Potter is his name, Professor."

"Very good. For those of you who are not familiar with the name, he was a boy who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry; not this branch, but the original," she said. "Later in life he was an auror. But most know him as the one who defeated Voldemort, the most powerful and dangerous dark wizard of our age. Now, I am going to release class early today." Several students began talking excitedly to each other. "Don't get too excited, I'm letting you use this time as independent study and you still have homework." Several groans followed that announcement. "I expect you to read up on Harry Potter," Lillian announced; she wasn't going to lecture about him, as any student with a wizarding background would know the story, but they should know it in more detail, and Muggleborns should be aware. "For homework, write an essay about the school of Hogwarts, the history of it, or any famous person you can find out about who was associated with the school. Class dismissed." Lillian had given a very broad essay topic, and was looking forward to see how the students would handle finding information for themselves.

Samantha walked into her class and sat in her usual spot which was at the front of the classroom. She began putting all the notes and anything else she needed onto her desk while waiting for the other students to arrive. Once everyone arrived, the professor began with the class.

When the professor mentioned about the boy who lived, she instantly raised her hand up. She remembered her dad mention about him. He did so many great things, she remembered her father tell her. The professor then asked what was the name of the boy who lived. Samantha still had her hand raised. The professor picked her to answer the question. Samantha put her hand down slowly and said, "Harry Potter is his name, professor" The professor continues on with the lesson and explains more about Harry Potter, she took down some notes about what she says. The professor also mentions that the class would be dismissed early. Samantha heard murmurs of excitement from her classmates around her. Once class was dismissed, Samantha packed her things and left the classroom, getting straight into her History Of Magic homework.

Jai Edogawa-Raven entered History of Magic relatively on time. While last week had been fairly interesting, it still remains that the class did not appeal to him as much as Flying or DaDA did. And it really was quite the shame, perhaps it was being cooped up in general that was getting to him. He didn't really get much time to ponder on it since Professor Sword had already begun with her lesson. The War half a century ago was pretty interesting if Jai had to admit, it was among the parts of History that Jai bothered to read on his own with interest, perhaps it helped that it wasn't that long ago that this part of history happened. The lesson however was fairly quick and that disappointed him just a tad bit, but he merely sighed and left the classroom, pondering on what or who he would write about for his essay.

Amy entered the History of Magic classroom, hoping that today's class would be interesting. It wasn't her favourite subject and had found that she wasn't studying it as much as she should've been. She took a seat and pulled out her notes. The class began and Amy was relieved to find out they were learning about Harry Potter. She knew a little bit about him, but knew that there was probably a lot she didn't know. The class ended quite quickly, so she hurried out to begin the essay. Maybe she would start enjoying her History of Magic classes more, now that she had settled down a little more at the school.
