Matt's last lesson had included a very long lecture, and he hoped he hadn't scared off some of his Sixth Years with it. This time it would thankfully be shorter, something he was sure they would appreciate. On the other hand, he figured that this point only the kids that really wanted to take this class were still taking it, so he felt confident that they would understand that longer lectures were a part of that. If they wanted to pass their NEWTs, they had to know a lot of information.

He smiled as his students filed in, leaning against the desk again. "Hello again, everyone. Today I hope not to bore you with a long lecture, and I'm sure you're all mourning that." He smiled at them to show he was joking. "We're talking about another founder today, one with a less dramatic past as Slytherin. This time we're talking about Godric Gryffindor. And yes, you do have to take notes."

"Unlike the other founders, we actually know for a fact where Godric lived. He came from "wild moor," though more specifically he was born in the West Country, in a place that is now known as Godric's Hollow."
He paused. "What a coincidence, huh?" He chuckled at his own joke before going on. "He was also an accomplished dueler, and an avid fighter against Muggle discrimination. He believed that anyone with magical ability should be allowed to go to Hogwarts. As you may remember from the last class, this clashed with the way Slytherin saw things, causing the latter to leave the school."

"One artifact of Godric Gryffindor is something we all know, it's the Sorting Hat. Another object that used to belong to him is a goblin made sword adorned with rubies. The colors of his house are gold and red. And as you probably know, the emblem is a lion, which reflects the quality of bravery."


Glad to be at the end of his lecture, Matt clapped his hands. "And that's all the basic information about old Gryffindor. I won't keep you any longer, so I will hopefully see you all next week."

The third lessons were here and that made this semester was already half way. She wasn't missing Quidditch, but she did miss the team. Her team mates had been nice and fun to be around with. Lessons were going great and Emily was on route with everything. So far, she didn’t have time to talk with Tyler and thus Emily had no clue how he felt about her. Emily packed her bag and flicked her bags inside. She slowly walked out of the dorm to go to the first lesson of the day.

She entered the History of Magic classroom and sat behind her usual desk. Last lesson had been about the Slytherin founder and Emily assumed they were going to have a lesson about all of them. So big chance today was Gryffindor, Hufflepuff or her house. It seemed that today was Gryffindor and the Professor spoke in quick succession about his achievements. The artifacts and where he had lived. When the Professor started to talk about Godric, she started to like the guy's visions of the school. Something that still wasn't achieved as of today. When the lesson ended Emily grabbed her stuff and left.

Aonghas never really looked forward to halloween here, it was fine..but he never bothered with a costume and never cared much for it either. It wasn’t the same as back home and perhaps in this year he was thinking about all the things he would manage to do in the next year around this time of year, it would certainly resemble the halloween he’d once known and not the ones he’d gotten used to being here at Hogwarts in New Zealand. Perhaps he could grow some pumpkins. Aonghas wasn’t sure, but it just meant that people were seemingly a bit busier and there was activity around him that he tried to engage with but he could never get into it. He oddly thought to himself that he felt more a ghost than a student which was suited to halloween. But he put aside such feelings and instead focused on the fact he had to get ready for class, there were a lot of things that he needed to do that day to ensure that he was ready for the day ahead. He switched out the books and notes in his bag to ones he would need and made sure that he wasn’t forgetting any lose piece of homework. Eventually, he was ready and he headed to class.
Aonghas headed into the history of magic classroom and took his usual spot in the room. His gaze moved towards the professor as the front of the room as he began pulling out notes and books and placing them down in front of him. The professor got started and in an obvious enough move they were looking at Godric Gryffindor. He was rather curious about what they would learn about him that wasn’t already covered in the slytherin one. He nodded along and took notes about what was being said. He’d been to Godrics Hollow before. His dad had randomly once taken him. He wasn’t sure why, they hadn’t fallen on either side during the war, but it was interesting to hear more about it and what it meant. Eventually the professor’s lecture was wrapped up and AOnghas packed up his things and left the room, pretty pleased that there would be no homework for him to do. He liked learning about the founders but writing essays about them was sure to be boring.

Cyzarine was getting herself together for the day, halloween was a fun and engaging event for sure and she knew that she would have a whole lot of fun in it. Cyzarine was looking forward to working hard and managing to get all of her work done beforehand so she could really enjoy herself, though she did expect that even if she didn’t she’d still manage to enjoy herself plenty at it. She liked being able to have fun at halloween and it was just nice to do something a little different. SHe’d been thinking about her next Hogwarts Monthly article and thought that maybe it would be cool to do another article on Halloween, she loved writing articles about school events, mostly because it was a space for her to just gush about how much she loved it. Cyzarine was putting her notes and books into her bag, making sure that she had the right homework for classes she had that day, the right books and notes and just everything that she would need for the day ahead. Once she had all of that Cyzarine took the time to get her hair to sit right and put on a little make up before she headed out of the class and to her first class of the day.
Cyzarine walked into the history of magic classroom and gave the professor a warm wave as she made her way to her usual spot in the room. Cyzarine took out her notes and books and placed them down in front of her. She looked towards the professor at the front of the room as the man got started. Gryffindor. She was so excited to hear about him. Cyzarine began writing down what the professor was saying about him. Much less dramatic but integral to it. She made sure that she was writing down what the professor was saying about it, her house founder. She had not really in her years given much thought to what being in Gryffindor meant, she loved it, it was so fun and exciting but it didn’t mean anything to her other than a house she was in. it was so interesting to her to learn about it and she couldn’t help but wonder where her father would’ve been placed had he gone here or to the other one. Eventually the lesson was wrapped up and Cyzarine was able to pack up her things and leave the room.

Elliot was trying to focus on Halloween and his couples costume with Alice, and not on how badly he'd played in their most recent Quidditch game against Slytherin. At least they had already covered Slytherin in History of Magic, so he didn't need to spend a whole lesson with that unfortunate reminder. Instead, he got settled as Professor Ward announced they'd be covering Gryffindor instead. Taking his notes as Professor Ward got started, Elliot was relieved that Gryffindor's history was a lot lighter than Slytherin last week as well, though there was still some talk about Slytherin, since their disagreement was a pretty notable point. Elliot hadn't realized the sorting hat had belonged to Gryffindor, wondering if there was ever any concern of bias, though he had to say from personal experience he'd certainly never noticed any of the sort at the sorting ceremonies. Even though he'd been grateful for the distraction of classes, Elliot was still glad once the lecture was over, stretching his note taking hand out a bit and packing up for the day. It was harder to lose himself in a more stationary subject like History, and Elliot could already feel himself dwelling on the game again. Eager to be moving again, Elliot said a quick goodbye to Professor Ward before heading to the corridor, wondering if he could catch Alice somewhere between classes.

Selene made her way to the history of magic classroom she was curious as to what founder they would be learning about today. while she had been previously reading Hogwarts a history the last week her free time had gone towards organising her and Helias costumes for the Halloween feast. it was going to be fun dressing up as a supervillain, even if it was one that no one had heard about. She entered the classroom and took a seat wondering who they would be learning about today. they had covered Slytherin already and part of her was hoping for Ravenclaw. but the other part of her was hoping of saving the best founder until last.
She took out her parchment and quill and was ready when the professor started the lecture on gryffindor. she listened and took notes. the 'brave' founder was interesting sure but he was more well known and to be honest it wasnt that supprising where his values stood. once the lesson was over she packed up her things and made her way out of the classroom.
