Octavia was well aware that her students had been working hard thus far, and today she would be providing a treat for them. The professor loved taking the class on field trips, it was a wonderful way to recharge, and pique their interest, and show them that history could indeed be an exciting subject. And it would also provide some sort of break for her, too. "Hello, class. Today we are going to the movies. For those of you magical folk who haven’t come across them before, muggle movies are a large expansion to our wizarding photographs. I'd like all of you to quickly make your way to your dorms, change into your muggle clothing, and return here."

Everyone left and returned in ten minutes. Professor Octavia smiled at them as they entered. "Now, I have tickets here for all of you, I am also going to give each of you five muggle dollars to buy snacks for the movie." She waited while the students each took their tickets and looked at them. One student gasped, "The Labyrinth?" The woman smiled and nodded, giving the student a wink. She could see some of the class were enthusiastic, others still confused or annoyed. She didn't get why anyone would be annoyed to see a film, but to each their own.

Octavia instructed them to approach the portkey mummy, and they were transported to an alley next to a large theatre. "All of you, sit near each other, and try not to talk during the film. There may be some questions on your end of the year exam based on this movie, so I suggest that you pay attention. Have fun! Meet back here once the movie is over."

Minnie really wanted to go to the halloween feast at the end of the week, but she wasn’t sure at all how she would find the time. The ravenclaw always in the past managed to find some time to do it, she worked a little harder all week to be on top of everything and then she could find the time to go along. However, this year she knew she didn’t have a lot of time, she didn’t have much time to spare, but she wasn’t not going to go just because she didn’t have time. Minnie wanted to go, and needed to go, the words from the last year would be ringing in her head if she didn’t. She would just take the night off, she would work harder around it, and if she didn’t entirely find the rest of the time. It would be good, she would have fun, Minnie didn’t have an idea for a costume, but it didn’t matter if she didn’t get dressed up, she would go and have fun. With that really firm in her head she finished packing up what she needed for the day and headed to class, she needed to work hard this week.

Minnie walked into the history of magic classroom and took her usual spot in the room. Her gaze moved to the professor at the front of the class as she took out her notes and books and placed them down in front of her. However she didn’t need to do this, the professor was instead telling them that they would be going to the movies. Minnie couldn’t help but frown deeply. The movies? They would be wasting double the amount of time to go to the movies. She sighed but packed away her things and headed to the dorm where she was able to change. She still brought her books back with her, keeping them in her bag. She took the ticket and the five muggle dollars and then let herself be taken to the movies. She didn’t know what film this would be, labyrinth meant nothing to her. She didn’t bother with any snacks but found herself a little corner of the muggle cinema, where there was just enough light for her book. She read it before the film started and made a point, of pretending to put it away during but didn’t. Instead she kept it out in front of her for as much of the movie as she could straining to read the words on the page. She barely noticed the film passing, and only moved again when the lights came back on. She put away the books and returned with the rest of the class to the school. Minnie handed back the money and then headed away. What would her parents have thought if she told them they’d gone to the cinema for a lesson.

Padme knew that the years at Hogwart would only get more difficult, she would have more work to do and she would need to focus far more on them. She had always maintained pretty average grades at school, she knew if she worked harder ever so fractionally that she might be able to drag her grades up further but Padme was sure that she didn’t want to. She didn’t she wanted to do with her life after school, and she wanted to just keep her options broad and have a lot of time to just enjoy herself, she would be working for the rest of her life. The hufflepuff was getting her things together and putting them all into her bag, she was taking her time to separate out the different homework and give most a glance to ensure that she had in fact finished them, and was not handing in mostly done work. Padme hadn’t been looking forward to school event, but she had to admit halloween was at least one where she wouldn’t have to worry so much, she could dress up and pretend to be someone she wasn’t - that made it easier. She put aside that thought and then got herself dressed and headed out of the dorm and to the first lesson of the day.
Padme walked into the history of magic classroom and took her usual spot in the room though this was a little short lived as the professor told them they’d be going to the cinema. She headed to the dorm and changed into muggle clothing. She was quick to do so and then return to the room. Padme took the ticket and the money and read what they’d be seeing, ”The Labyrinth?” she was quite surprised by it, though it was a film she knew, her parents liked it. And somewhat she wished her and her siblings had been named after those characters and not the star wars ones. Padme got some popcorn and a little drink and then went to find a seat. She kept one open next to her for Jace but was drawn in by the movie. It was different to watch films on a big screen like this. She liked it. It was a good different. She enjoyed the film too, though she already knew it, it was a pretty enjoyable watch in her mind. She was a little disappointed when it was over but she just went back to class feeling pretty excited. It had been fun, a little break in all of the rest of it.

Samantha walked to her History of Magic classroom for her next lesson. She didn't mind the class, though she felt that it was a bit different. Different being that she still wasn't used to the new professor and her new teaching methods, but Samantha guessed that she would get used to it as the semester went on. Samantha took a seat and the professor began. She was a little surprised that they were allowed to wear their muggle clothing. She went back to her dorm to get changed and then headed back. She was a little tired from going up and down the stairs from changing! They were going to watch a film that Samantha had never heard of in her life! She didn't know if this was going to be a fun or a boring experience but she had to wait and see. She bought a couple snacks and a drink with the money that was given to her to buy some and they went into the theater. She got comfortable, lights dimmed and the film had begun. There were a few interesting parts of the film. The lights were back on ad the lesson was supposedly over. She thanked the professor for the lesson as they made their way back to class.

Noel was ready for this new year. He hoped that his good grades would continue and that he still would have a great time with his friends. The brown haired boy had enjoyed the break and spending some time with Minnie, eating an icecream together. Also it was nice to see his friends back here at school. He had to grin about having so many friends who were girls. If Liam he was here he sure would be proud of him but Noel wasn't like Liam. He didn't thought that way how Liam did. But what he did know understood was why Liam found girls pretty. Noel started to see that getting attention from a girl was kind of nice and he felt more confident every time. But still he also liked hanging out with his other friends as well Dainstree and Sully. He had to find some balance between spending time with friends and studying since he wanted to do good. He had too.

The brown haired boy entered the classroom and was curious what todays lesson would bring. The woman told them they would go to the movies. He quickly went back to his dorm to change into muggles clothes and than came back. He was excited whenever they would go on an field trip. They also got money for snacks and this was awesome. He walked over to the portkey and touched it when he could. Suddenly they were in a theatre and he was excited to see the movie. He had no idea if he had to take notes but made sure he had some paper close in case there were some important stuff. But from an movie he could remember more than from just hearing an lecture he figured. When the lesson was over he was back in the castle again and had been having an nice lesson. It was fun to go there.

Field trips weren't an uncommon thing in muggle studies but Olivia was still surprised when she arrived and Professor Pourroulis told them they would be going to the movies so had to go back and change into muggle clothes. She quickly made her way back to her dorms to change and headed back to the classroom. They took the portkey and entered the movie theater, Professor Pourroulis gave them tickets to the movie they were seeing and some money which she used to by popcorn. Olivia made her way into the screen to watch the movie, it wasn't bad to watch but Olivia wouldn't say she enjoyed it. Once it was over she made her way out and joined the rest of the class so they could take the portkey back to the classroom.

For some reason, this year Chloe had decided not to go to the halloween feast, so she was relieved that at least she would not have to worry about what costume she would wear, and could focus more on just spend time time with herself. She wondered if Cyrus would attend, it would be funny to see what he dressed up as if he did attend the feast. Chloe wanted to just relax and maybe read a book in her own company this weekend, something she hadn't done in a long time, just have some time alone. She had attended the spin the bottle game which had been interesting, and had gotten her first kiss out of the way. Not that she actually cared about that, she wasn't embarrassed to admit it to anyone else, although she probably would not tell her mother about it since she would most probably disapprove of such games. The girl smiled at this thought as she got ready and grabbed her bag before making her way to class.

Chloe certainly had favourite subjects, although she knew that she had to take some of the subjects she was taking because it opened options for her future career. She had no idea what she wanted to do yet, maybe she'd become a professional Quidditch player, but again that didn't seem to be a very reliable option. She was aware that she would not be able to play for the rest of her life. So she had to have a better, more secure plan. She took out some parchment and her quill as Professor Pourroulis greeted them, and proceeded to begin the lesson. She frowned, they were going to the movies? This seemed more of a muggle studies thing to do. She shrugged and put away her stuff before she quickly went back to change into muggle clothing, and when they were all back in the classroom soon they portkeyed to the movie theatre. Chloe was very familiar with films, she just hoped this one would at least be a little interesting. Chloe got some snacks, and followed her classmates in the theatre room. Chloe tried to pay attention though she didn't really like the film. When it was over and they were back at school, the Ravenclaw thanked the professor and headed to the library.
