The professor was looking forward to this lesson because they would be doing two spells today, and he thought his fourth years would find it interesting. He waited for the students to take their seats, Professor Kain himself was sat on one of the benches as he waited for them to file into the room. Once they were settled, he jumped off and turned to face them, rolling up his sleeves with a smile on his face. "Hey guys. Hope everyone's ready to go? Today we will be doing two charms. The Amplifying Charm and the Quietening Charm," he began, curious to know what the students would do once they could do this spell in their own time. As a student, Kain had used the amplifying charm to overhear a conversation that wasn't intended for his own ears, and it had not ended well. "These are complete opposites and quite effective in countering each other. When you use the Amplifying Charm, you can use the Quietening one to even out the effects, to save you using Finite." Professor Kain was walking between the benches as he spoke, making sure he had everyone's attention. "Shouting and using the Amplifying Charm doesn't make much of a difference when it comes to stress to the vocal chords really, because as it when it come to shouting, when you use the charm for long periods, your voice will be quite hoarse," he hoped that the students weren't going to over do if they tried it themselves. "The Quietening Charm is comparable to that of a whisper that you'd have to strain to hear the one who is under its effects so I don't want you using this in future lessons to not listen to me!"

"So there's no wand movement for this, you just need to point your wand at your target. However, let's see who remembers the incantations." He said, pointing at one of the students who hand their hand up. "The Amplifying Charm?" Professor Kain nodded when the student got the answer right, "Yes, and the Quietening Charm?" he asked, picking a second student. "Very good! So we're going to just run through these as a class too to make sure our pronunciation is correct." he smiled, "We'll begin with Sonorus for the Amplifying Charm, "soh-NOHR0-us", wonderful, and the Quietening Charm, Quietus, "KWIY-uh-tus" Excellent job." Professor Kain looked round the room, ready to move on to the next part. "Now I want you to partner up and give these charms a go. If you have any problems I'll be floating around!" he finished, letting them get on with their work.

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 charms classroom and took her usual spot in the room. She took out her notes and books and placed them down in front of her as the professor at the front of the room got started. They would be covering two spells, and the two spells would be of some use to her. She knew sonorus, the amplifying charm would be good for quidditch and well, quietening would be good if she needed to be quiet. The teen listened as the professor told them about both of the spells, explaining that one could cancel the other out but that it was perhaps better to use the finite spell. The teen raised her hand to answer the first question and rather pleased with herself when she got it right, ”Sonorus, sir,” she said proudly pleased when the professor confirmed that she was right. She would’ve liked to also answer the next question but the professor picked someone else. Then with the explanation over they were allowed to spend the rest of the lesson practicing. She partnered up with the person next to her and practiced the spells back and forth. She took no time at all to get the amplifying charm and just a little more time with the quietening charm. Eventually the lesson was wrapped up and she packed up her things and headed out of the room.

Padme knew that the years at Hogwarts 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 charms classroom and took her usual spot in the room. Her gaze moved to the front of the class as the professor got started. She was curious to what they would be doing and keen to just get started. She listened as the professor went over the two spells that they would be covering, in her mind it made sense that they would do the two spells it would ensure that they learnt two connected things. The spells were similar and they were good spells. She listened as the professor gave them the incantations for both of the spells, asking the class for them, and then finally they were allowed to try it. Near immediately the class filled with noise. Padme turned to her partner and practiced the spells with them. She took a while to get the amplifying charm, nearly the whole lesson to get a good one, when the quietening spell she had next to no difficulties with. She practiced the spells until the professor wrapped up the class and dismissed them. She had liked doing those spells, even if she’d had bother with one, it wasn’t a bad spell. Just not one for her.

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 Gryffindor made his way into the Charms classroom. He was eager for todays lesson and to be learning more. And hoped some things would be practical as well. He found his usual spot somewhere in the front and listend as the lesson started. The charms they would be learning didn't seemed too amazing, but handy. When the first question was answered by Minnie he smiled and he put his hand into the air for the second. '' It's Quietus, Professor.'' He than told the man as he got chosen. The boy than listened further until they could practice for them own. Noel started with the Amplifying Charm, it seemed more fun than it was. He took his wand and said the incantation and smiled as it succeeded. Than he tried the other one and it went rather good. He tried a few more times until he figured it was as good as it would be. And left the room when the lesson was over.

Charms was always a fun time, especially on days they had more practical lessons. Sully was eager when Professor Kain got the lesson started and mentioned they'd be covering two spells, already trying to run through some fun possibilities as he explained how the two charms worked. The names of the charms were pretty self-explanatory, so Sully didn't bother writing much down, just following along as they went over the two incantations.

Finally, it was time to get in some proper practice with the spell and Sully eager hopped up to pair up with a classmate. As fun as complicated wand movements and stuff were, Sully always liked simple spells like this more. Taking turns casting and counter-casting the spells, Sully grinned when it was his turn to use sonorus. "HEY NOEL," Sully called to his friend using his amplified voice, his partner only just managing to cast a quietus charm before his laughter split over and disturbed the entire class. After practicing for awhile, it was time to pack up, and Sully was already eager to try out the spells elsewhere about the school.

Olivia was excited for their latest charms lesson because they would be learning a couple of spells that could come in handy down the line, especially if people were annoying her. She made her way into the classroom and took her seat, Professor Kain began the lesson talking about the amplifying and the quietening charms that they would be learning to cast that lesson. The amplifying charm definitely be useful is she was ever trying to wrangle her siblings and they were proving difficult to control, she thought about Ryan in particular. Olivia listened as the professor went through the incantations for both spells and she went off to practice once she was finished. She took it turns amplifying and quietening her voice calling out nonsense phrases and words to see how they sounded. Once the lesson was over she returned her voice to normal and made her way out of the classroom.
