Now that they were in their third week of lessons and Mackenzie had familiarized herself more with the castle she had made her way to the student lounge with the intent to get some homework done. She could've as easily headed to the library or the common room but both of those places had proven to be boring and she strongly disliked everything boring. The youngster sat down at one of the tables, putting her book down on the table and opening it to she right page. After reading about a sentence and a half she shook her head and closed the book again. Yeah, definitely boring so she wasn't going to do that. Or well, she would do it, just not right now. Who'd need to do their homework right away anyways? She didn't worry too much about that, being highly confident in her ability to get the homework done right before class started and still do well. She was smart enough. Letting out a little sigh Mackenzie tried to drop the book back into her bag, not being too impressed when it fell next to it. Whatever, she'd just pick it up later. For now she looked around, observing the other students in the lounge and seeing if any of them were doing anything remotely interesting.

Nicole had explained things about class schedules and how Ryan just had to be patient for classes he was excited about, but Ryan still thought it was annoying he had to wait a whole semester before he could work on Transfiguration spells again. He'd been fascinated with the idea of animation spells and had been determined to learn more about them now he was back at school, class or not class. He was sure he could wait for more information in Transfiguration, or even find a book in the library about it, but Ryan much preferred to work out at least a starting point on his own.

There were plenty of statues and suits of armor about the castle, but Ryan wanted to start small. He'd managed a rather messy paper crane, having seen some other students fold paper before and doing his best to imitate it. Now, he just needed to try and animate it. "Animare," He said, giving the crane three quick taps and immediately dropping his want to watch it closely. The crane twitched for a moment, fluttering its paper wings awkwardly since the folds were uneven.

Not much interesting seemed to be going on in the lounge and Mackenzie was about to pack up and leave when she noticed a boy with some sort of paper bird. Badly folded, as well. She frowned as she watched him tap the thing with his wand, wondering what he was even trying to accomplish with it. It seemed like he wanted to make it come alive, perhaps trying some sort of transfiguration, but he didn't seem to be especially good in making it work. "That just looks sad." She stated, looking between him and the crane from where she was sitting. Maybe if he had folded it better it could actually work, but with badly folded wings like that she doubted the bird would be able to do more than awkwardly flap the parts of the paper that were supposed to be its wings. It wasn't like she would be able to do a better job folding, or at least she didn't know because she never tried, but that didn't keep her from stating her opinion on how the boy had done. If he was to try and turn something animate he could at least make sure it was something that would actually look good when being transfigured.
