Moving about the room, Professor Jacqueline Styx quickly transfigured the desks to have a large, lighted mirror attached to them so the students would have an easier time of working with the spell. Just as she finished, the students started to file in and stopped, looking a bit confused.

"Come in, come in. Grab a seat! We have a fun topic to cover today and I want to let you have plenty of time to practice!" Professor Styx motioned to the modified desks, smiling at the students confusion. She moved quickly to the front of the room and hopped up on top of her own desk, crossing her legs as the hung off the desk. Assessing the group before her, she counted heads to make sure all were present before continuing.

"Alright. Today we are going to cover color-changing spells. This is a bit of non-verbal magic that you should be able to accomplish with a bit of practice. We are going to work on something small, then you can work up from there." She picked up her wand from her lap, and twirled it in her hands. "Color changing will be achieved by following a few simple steps. First off, you need to concentrate. Picture in your head the object you are trying to change the color of clearly. You want to make sure that you are not distracted so that you don't have any issues with your transfiguration. Second, you want to picture the object changing to the color you want. The more detailed the image in your head, the better your end result will be. Third, tap the object three times." She brought her wand up to her hair, tapping it three times. It quickly changed from its brunette color to a deep red. Tapping it again, it was a brilliant blonde. Once again, and it became a shade of deep purple.

Professor Styx slid off the desk, leaving her hair the last color she had played with. "Now its your turn. Don't forget to concentrate and don't panic! I am here to help you fix any mishaps you might have. It might take a few tries to get it right, but don't give up. I want you to work on a smaller item -- your eyebrows. Now, give it a try, using the mirror to help you out. Have fun!" She gave them a smirk and began to wander around the room, watching for successes and for those who need a bit of help.

Too soon, the class period was over and she restored those who were successful back to normal. As the last student left the room, she restored her own color back from the purple before setting the classroom up for the next group to come in.



Homework: Simply rp the lesson. Have any mishaps you wish! Have fun!

Zennon walked into Transfiguration ready to get down to business. He was tired from all the extra work he'd been putting in with everything, including the stuff in the Hospital Wing, it was all fun and games, but he knew that people could be seriously hurt sometimes, though the worst injury he'd seen so far had been the Quidditch games and that one girl who'd had an allergic reaction to something. He didn't think he'd ever seen Professor Pendleton so flustered before. He was happy and excited to hear that they had a fun topic today, not that the other classes hadn't been fun or anything, but he certainly wanted to continue down that path since he found he always did better in the fun classes than in the classes that weren't fun at all. The year was going to be over soon, so exams would happen, then OWLs for the twins and then he would be heading home until seventh year, and then he would have NEWTs and then he would Graduate and then he would leave and probably hardly ever see his friends as he went into Healer training and then... he shook his head. He didn't want to be thinking about this now. Of all the times to think about things, now was certainly not the time to be spiralling. Honestly, it was all just a bit alarming.​
Hearing that the would be working on colour changing spells was exciting, because that would be so helpful, not to mention that it would be nonverbal, which will be a lot of fun, he knew. Of course, nonverbal spells were not easy, but it was a lot more common than wandless magic was, something he was equally keen on using. He hoped he could do wandless and wordless magic together, how amazing would that be, he wouldn't even need to keep his wand around. Zennon wasn't sure how he felt about changing the colour of his eyebrows, but he listened as she spoke. He spent the hour practising, snorting at the other people in the class and laughing at his own mishaps with it. He spent most of the class with bright yellow eyebrows before managing to change them to red and finally green. Once the class was over, Professor Styx helped him change them back so he wasn't walking the halls with bright green eyebrows, though, honestly, green was better than red or yellow, since at least green was his house colour.​

Anastasie's sixth year was moving very fast. The teen was halfway done with the first semester already and there was still so much work she had to do and so much that had to be covered in her classes. She had to admit that it was quite stressful, even though she was managing her time well. She managed to not get too distracted by everything that had happened last week and was just proud of herself for this. She had too many things to focus on and so made sure to organise her time nicely. The girl packed everything she needed for that day into her backpack before leaving her dormitory and heading straight to her classes.

Ana entered the Transfiguration classroom for the fourth time that year, taking her usual seat within the room. She hoped that soon enough the professor would give them a lecture about something, but was happy to just learn yet another spell until that time came. This time they were changing the colour of their hair, which was something Anastasie was hesitant about. She liked the colour of her hair and didn't really want to change it. Nonetheless, she had to oblige with the professor. The teen took out her wand and pointed it at her hair. She hesitated and wasn't able to get it the first go. Eventually, she did manage to get it, and her hair had changed to a bright shade of yellow. Completely repulsed at her new appearance, the teen was quick to get the professor to change it back before heading out of the classroom.
