Lesson Three
Samantha walked into her History of Magic classroom and took a seat in her usual seat, as well as taking out the things she needed for the lesson, hoping to show that she was ready and prepared for the lesson. In today's lesson, they were learning about another founder of Hogwarts, who was the founder of Gryffindor. Samantha learning that his name was Godric Gryffindor. Sam nodded along and listened carefully as she wrote down the notes and as much information as she could the professor was telling them about Godric Gryffindor. Once the lesson was over, Samantha packed up her things, said a quick thank you and goodbye to the professor, before heading out towards the door.


Grade: E


Lesson Four
Samantha had realised that the first semester was almost coming to an end. She had a mixture of feelings about the semester ending. The young Hufflepuff made her way towards her History of Magic classroom and took a seat in her usual spot. She didn't realise that she had arrived in class a little earlier than the professor until she looked up and saw him enter the classroom and questioned if he was late.

They then started off with the lesson. They were learning about another house founder, named Rowena Ravenclaw, who was the founder of the Ravenclaw house. Samantha got onto her notebook and took in all the information and notes she needed and got from the professor, nodding her head to show that she was understanding and taking in the information. Once the lesson was over, Samantha packed up her things, said a quick thank you and goodbye to the professor, before heading out towards the door.

Year & House: Sixth year Gryffindor
Lesson Missed: Four


Knox’s semester was passing by in a blur. He was in his own head most of the time, feeling like he was caught in in some kind of a limbo between two phases in his life, and in theory he was in more ways than one. He was torn between whether he should spend more time with his brother and more time with his mum and dad, and he was also caught between his OWL and NEWT year, having to attend classes and maintain his grades so he could pass his NEWTs when he was in his seventh year. It had dawned on Knox the importance of his grades and focusing on classes for the sake of his future, and as he arrived to his History of Magic class that day he knew he needed to try his best to learn and study for the upcoming exams.

Knox sat down at a desk near the middle of the room, and got out his parchment and self inking quill, using it to take notes as the professor introduced the subject of that day’s lesson being Ravenclaw house. Knox smiled when the professor mentioned it was his own house, and then later as the professor mentioned the qualities Rowena Ravenclaw prized in her students. Knox had to admit prior to that semester he never knew too much about each of the Hogwarts houses’ qualities, and only knew he was placed in Gryffindor, not what the implications of that were. But it was interesting to learn more about it, to hear that Knox’s friends in Ravenclaw were chosen for that house because of their creativity and intelligence. Knox continued taking notes throughout the lesson, noting down the reason for Rowena’s passing and her daughter was reportedly the Ravenclaw house ghost. Eventually the professor dismissed the lesson and Knox packed up his things before heading to the great lawn to study.

Lesson 3

Noel listened as the professor started with the lesson. He had his parchment and tools to write for notes in front of him and smiled as the lesson went about Godric Gryffindor. He was really happy being in Gryffindor and felt that, Godric was the most interesting of the four founders. Noel wished he could met Godric since he felt like they would get along fine in his mind. The man had done good stuff he thought. It was not much new information because he felt it was important to know history of your house, so he had read about it before. When the lesson was over he checked his notes and left the room.


Grade: E

Lesson 4

The prefect entered the classroom and found his usual spot in the room. He waited for the professor to begin and as he did he started to write along. Rowena Ravenclaw was the one for today and he figured he would write more about this since he knew the most of his own house founder. He knew how an broken heart felt, but dying of it seemed very tragic. Her daughter was also an ghost he already knew. As he was done with his notes and felt like they were complete he left the room.

Adorah knew that they only had one more founder to discuss, and she thought Hufflepuff definitely seemed to be the least appreciated founder. In fact, she had noticed that both Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff seemed to get the short end of the stick, probably because of the patriarchy. As she listened to Professor Ward talk about the house, she wondered why they went with a badger and not a bee or something that represented the colors better. Hearing about Hufflepuff, Adorah smiled over at Samantha, seeing many of the same qualities in her closest friend at school. At the end of class, she gathered her things, making sure to place her notes in order within her notebook, and then headed to the library to continue to study.

Grade: O
Adorah was never not interested in history of magic, especially because she grew up outside of the magical world. It never ceased to amaze her how many things happened in secret around the world, like wars and stuff that muggles basically ignored. As she took her seat pondering these thoughts, Adorah pulled out her notes, glad Professor Ward was rewarding them with a study day. She went through her notes, rewarding over a few sections that listed lots of dates or minute details before starting on her notecards. She had kept all the notes throughout the years, knowing that some of what they eventually learned and expanded on came from her first year or so. She got about 1/4 of her notecards finished by the time the bell rang and figured she could another 1/4 done at the library. History required you to be thorough, and as she gathered her things, she headed towards her favorite study spot.

Lesson Missed: 5, 6

Five:

This was the class Celia had been dreading the most. It had been a week since Celia had seen Professor Pourroulis in that nightmarish meeting at the headmistress's office, and if she had her way, she would never see the professor again. For a second, Celia considered just skipping class altogether, but she knew her absence would definitely be noticed. Professor Pourroulis would probably fail her on the spot — assuming she hadn't already done so. And she needed to do well in her classes now that she knew she was stuck at Hogwarts with no hope of transferring out.

It was hard to believe that just a week ago, she had entered the History of Magic classroom convinced she was on the brink of triumph. Now Celia slunk inside, gaze firmly fixed on the ground in front of her. She couldn't look Professor Pourroulis in the eye. When she reached her seat at the edge of the room, she kept her gaze down. Yes, that would make it impossible to see anything written on the board, but technically she didn't need to take notes. She'd already gone through the textbook on her own.

Because of that self-studying, Celia knew who "the boy who lived" was. But there was no way she was answering. To her surprise and immense relief, Professor Pourroulis decided to dismiss them early. The less time Celia spent in the same room as the professor, the better. She was starting to feel sick with all the anxiety building up in her gut. As soon as she'd noted down the homework assignment, Celia shot straight for the door, determined to get out of there as quickly as possible.

Hogwarts

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a prestigious magical school in Great Britain. It was founded around 990 A.D. by Salazar Slytherin, Rowena Ravenclaw, Godric Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff. There was a lot of debate about who would get to attend since Slytherin just wanted to admit pureblood students, but the other three founders overruled him and he left. In 1998, it was the site of the Battle of Hogwarts, and Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters fought against the school. Lord Voldemort was defeated. In 2016, a Hogwarts alumnus, Alicia Barker, opened a branch in New Zealand with the help of Bearse Prosinian.

Six:

Celia wasn't even sure whether it was worth going to class. In the grand scheme of things, would attending an extra class even matter? Her grade was already shot thanks to half a semester's worth of absences and the escape attempt. Plus, Professor Pourroulis undoubtedly hated her and was probably planning on flunking her anyways. Though it bothered her immensely that she wouldn't be getting straight A's as usual — well, O's, in this case — she knew better than to expect anything higher than a T in History of Magic.

Still, if she skipped class, the school would probably tell her mom, and she'd be in even greater trouble. Her parents would find a way to punish her even further. Better to just grit her teeth and deal with an hour of awkwardness. Celia made her way into the HOM classroom, steadfastly refusing to look at Professor Pourroulis. She slid into her usual seat and waited for the announcement that this would be a review class.

To her surprise, Professor Pourroulis was also giving them the option to study in the library. Celia was definitely going to do that. She immediately gathered up her stuff and headed out, eager to get away from the classroom. It almost felt like she couldn't breathe in there.

Four:

Weston couldn't tell if he was doing better in History of Magic or not. Was he getting better at concentrating or were the last few lectures just easier to pay attention to? He decided to go the optimistic route. After all, he'd actually started studying. He had a tutor. There was no way he'd fail HOM this year.

All of his optimism drained away when he heard Professor Octavia announce that they had a long lecture ahead of them. He dug out his quill and some parchment and readied himself for a long session of torture. The subject was kind of interesting. He'd heard of alchemy, but only in fictional legends. But soon he got lost trying to scribble down all the details, the names and dates. It was hard to keep up.

The story about the stink bomb was funny, and he grinned, glad at the moment of levity. He also recognized the mention of the Philosopher's Stone and proudly raised his hand to show that he knew something. Weston wanted to hear more about the people who had died in their search for the stone, but unfortunately, Professor Octavia decided to end class there. To make things worse, she assigned them an essay. With a sigh, he noted the homework down before leaving the classroom.

Five:

One more class. Weston just had to survive one more class and then he would be done with History of Magic forever. Well technically, it was two more classes, but everyone knew the last week of classes didn't count. Those were just review sessions (unless your name was Professor Summers; Weston still wasn't sure why he insisted on actually teaching during the first and last classes of the semester).

To his utter delight, it seemed that today would also be a review session. Weston grinned and wasted no time getting up and heading out as soon as Professor Pourroulis gave the go-ahead. He was going to the library, of course, but he definitely wasn't going to study. After working so hard the past few weeks, he deserved a break. Plus, there were two whole weeks before the exams. He had more than enough time to study later.

Six:

He had done it. He had survived a whole semester of History of Magic without dying. Today would almost definitely be a review day, and those obviously didn't count. Weston was feeling pretty proud of himself, and he entered the classroom with a smile. As expected, Professor Pourroulis announced that the period would be devoted to revision. Weston immediately started packing up his belongings, intent on going to the library. He wasn't sure whether he would actually study once he got there, but it didn't matter. He still had plenty of time before the exam to actually revise.

As the weeks went on, Elliot was finding it stranger and stranger to see each milestone pass. His last quidditch game, his last rose giving, his last valentine's dance. It was odd to put it all into context each day, and Elliot found himself getting caught up in the train of thought despite his best efforts.

He sat down for History, trying not to think about how few days he'd have left in this classroom (though the countdown of how many essays he had left to write was somewhat uplifting), listening as Professor Ward greeted them all. He took the revision sheet as it was handed out, trying to remember what he might have been thinking about back in his first and second years before going through the worksheet to see what areas he needed to brush up to prep for his NEWTs. Once the test was done and Elliot had made his notes, he packed up, giving Professor Ward a quick wave on his way out.

1. The most famous wizard of our time is...?
Merlin
2. When did the Salem Witch Trials take place?
1692
3. Name two people who were named as witches in the trials, and who named them?
Sarah Good and Sarah Osborne were named by Betty and Abigail Williams
4. Explain a little about King Arthur's childhood (one or two sentences)
Arthur was originally put up for adoption as a baby, but Merlin was able to find a foster father to care for him. He had a half-sister as well named Morgan Le Fey
5. Who is the 'boy who lived?'
Harry Potter
6. Who was Merlin's greatest foe, and how did he defeat them?
Madam Mim. He defeated her by transforming into a microbe.
7. What is the name of King Arthur's fabled sword, and how did he acquire it?
Excalibur, which was removed from a stone by Arthur
8. Who was King Arthur's half sister?
Morgan La Fey
9. What is alchemy the study of?
The study of the mix between chemicals and magic
10. What stone did alchemists dedicate their lives to finding?
The Philosopher's Stone

Lesson Missed: Lesson One

Returning to Hogwarts after the Yule Ball, Nell felt like her life had only gotten more confusing. Even without the troubles of her personal life preparing for the upcoming NEWTs would be difficult, but the amount of things she had on her mind certainly didn't make it any easier. There was the ever-present tension in her dorm, the growing feelings she had for Jasper, and now confusion about their last date. The Yule Ball had been decidedly unromantic - had she misinterpreted? She didn't think she had, but maybe he really just saw her as only a friend. Even... thinking that felt wrong, but what else could it be? Nell had never been one to let a question go unanswered, so now she was sure it was up to her to solve this. Lessons took priority though and she knew she needed to focus harder than ever this semester, looking up as Professor Ward began to speak and taking careful note of everything he said. It was a relief to hear they would be focusing on revision rather than new material, it would hopefully make cramming for the upcoming NEWT much easier. Reassured about her chances in this subject, Nell packed up her things once class was over and headed down to the Monthly headquarters to check in on things before settling in to revise.

Connor felt light as air, returning to Hogwarts after the holidays. He had a boyfriend, a real, proper boyfriend. It almost felt too good to be true. He had been making just about every excuse he could to hang out with Nikko, enjoying the feeling of having a boyfriend. The upcoming Quidditch match against Gryffindor was giving him some nerves, but surely that wouldn't be that much of a problem. It was just Quidditch after all, they had been friends and rivals for years. Entering the History of Magic classroom Connor wasn't surprised they would have another new professor this year, but at least the man seemed nice. The subject material for the year sounded interesting too and Connor jotted it down excitedly, looking forward to the year ahead.

Tobe-Mae Ellis was off track. She started off the semester strong, but the stress was getting to her again, like last semester. At least then, she was taking classes that she enjoyed. Defense Against the Dark Arts was still a cringey subject, but she liked it better than Charms. However, Charms was likely the most useful class for Tobe-Mae because she was not interested in going into law enforcement. Too much drama. Tobe-Mae looked up from her textbook when the professor made his entrance with what he must have considered a joke.

Tobe-Mae turned her attention back to her textbook. The assigned reading from last week rested at the edge of her desk. She was behind in the readings, but class time was a prime time to take detailed notes. Her desk didn't have space for anything other than the two books already on it. “Polyphemus.” she whispered to herself. The book itself wasn't helpful for studying because the plot got in the way. She flipped through the textbook and found space to make notes. It was not long before class was over, and it was annoying she had to cut her writing short to leave the classroom.

Lysander entered the History of Magic classroom and took his usual seat, settling down to prepare to unpack his stuff. He needn't have bothered, as the professor informed them they could go to the library and do their own research for the day. He groaned inwardly at the mention of an essay, and packed his things slowly back into his bag after jotting down a few notes from the board. He didn't love the idea of having the read about all the information himself instead of being told it directly, and wondered if Chloe or Ajax were free to study with to make it that much less boring. The topic of Egyptian magic was interesting, and he vaguely knew that Osiris was one of the gods there, which made it all the more interesting. He slugged his bag over his shoulder and headed out to the library to get a start on the work.

Lysander was back for another lesson of History of Magic. There had been a ton to cover in the previous lesson, though unlike previous years, he'd really enjoyed a lot of the content. It was easier to pay attention to when it was about more exciting mythologies and creatures. He sat down in his seat, dumping his frog-shaped bag beneath his desk with a dull, enchanted croak, and got to work fishing out his writing utensils. He listened to Professor Ward speak, and raised his hand to answer the question about Cyclopses, but grumbled to himself when Thomas beat him to it. He jotted down some notes, not knowing much before about whether or not they were directly related to regular giants. He'd heard a bit about the Odyssey, and it was one of the fewer familiar tales. He packed his things as the lesson came to an end and lifted his bag back up to his shoulder, before exiting the classroom.

Selene entered the history of magic classroom. She was starting to feel a bit better. The headaches that had rocked her the previous week were settling down and she was sleeping again. She took a seat and was expecting another quiz not that there was much that hadn’t been assessed. She was not really surprised when the professor said that it would just be a study week. She got out her books and started to read. Her mind wondering from the past to the future. The professors talk reminding her how close the future was. Once the class was over she packed up. thank you professor Alcott ward she said before leaving to claim a seat in the library for the next few hours.

Selene made her way to the history of magic classroom. After her outburst last week she had had a continual headache which was only just starting to settle with a mixture of meditation herbal teas and quiet areas. Not that she had much time to relax. She sat down ready for the next quiz. She was a little disappointed that they wouldn’t have one on mythology. She was good at that. It was her favourite thing to read in her free time. Instead she got out her book and read about the myths. Medusa and Hercules and the man who flew too close to the sun whose name she didn’t dare think of.
once the class was over she packed up her things and left. Grabbing a quick food before going to the headpeoples common room to study in silence.
