Sixth Years, Lesson Two

"Today sixth years, you'll be learning the spell Incarcerous," He said as he motioned to word on the board. "Can anyone tell me, what this spell does? Let’s see who did the reading for this week." He asked, with a smile. He picked on a student. They answered with thankfully the correct answer, "It conjures ropes, to bind someone." Professor Haden smiled at the kid, before continuing for them. "Or something, let me show you." He said, before, pulling the wand from inside his suit trouser pockets and making a dummy appear from behind the chalkboard.

"Like, with any spell imagining in your head what you want to happen, will help with the success of the spell. Especially in the beginning" He intoned the word Incarcerous firmly, and a mass of thick ropes appeared out of nowhere, wrapping about the inanimate object tightly. He turned to face the students once more. "As you can see, using this spell on objects that do not move is much easier than something that is moving. This spell is quite useful for duelling purposes- and of course, when you want to catch something and detain it. However, while at school, the spell should only be used for supervised duelling purposes. With the exception very possibly of prefects using it on those first years who run around hyped up on sugar." He said, The spell was not to be used lightly. It wasn’t a joke, it wasn’t friendly. He wanted students to know that unless it was a duel being watched by a professor.

"Enough of me," He continued. He waved his wand, and many more dummies appeared. "Push all the desks away and practice! If you don’t get it the first time, try again. If you have any problems raise your hand and I’ll come to help." He said, taking a seat on his desk and sipping his tea as he watched the students practice. "Once you feel you have perfected it, you are welcome to leave. And your homework, before you all rush out of here, is to read the chapter in your charms book on the disillusionment charm."


RP the lesson. Points for answering the question.

Hogwarts was definitely getting back into the swing of things now. Hattie had taken notes during previous lessons, hoping these would help her later on. She made sure to keep them all in her backpack so she didn’t forget them. It seemed like a lot of information to remember and the last thing she wanted was to forget all of the work she had done. Checking her timetable, Hattie packed her backpack with everything she needed for the day before heading out of her dormitory and following her housemates to their first class for the week.

Hattie entered the charms classroom and took her usual seat within the room. She was excited to learn a whole new spell today and hoped that it would be easy enough to master. The professor began speaking and started the class by asking them what the spell Incarcerous did. Having done her reading, Hattie raised her hand to answer. "It conjures ropes, to bind someone." she told him, smiling as he said she was correct. Soon enough, the professor made some dummies appear and the class had to practice the spell on them. The Ravenclaw stood in front of one, pointing her wand straight out in front of her. It took a couple of tries, but eventually a rope, not as long or as strong as the professor's however, came out of her wand and wrapped itself tightly around the dummy. Hattie left the classroom at the end of the lesson beaming.

After the first week Minnie had found a good rhythm. It didn’t take much but she had found what she needed, balancing her school work, her revision and her quidditch. She could admit she was perhaps putting more pressure on herself that really necessary when she considered that her parents truly didn’t care about her or her achievements anymore. She just kept thinking maybe the next O or the next well done, the next win and maybe it would turn around, even though Minnie knew she was talking to a brick wall, even though she knew that her parents weren’t going to suddenly wake up and feel differently. Just, she felt she had to hope and work hard just on the off chance and because if she didn’t work hard she wouldn’t be deserving of it anyway. The teen was finishing off her homework for the third time and then getting her bag ready for the day ahead, she wasn’t putting her hair up again, she felt she could maybe concentrate better when her hair was just tucked behind her ear, not tightly held in a ponytail. She grabbed the few other things that she would need and then just headed out of the room.

Minnie walked into the charms classroom and took her usual spot at the front of the room. She looked up at the professor as the finished taking out what she would need for this lesson and he began talking about what they were doing. She didn’t raise her hand to answer the question but she had done the reading so she did know what the answer was but just wasn’t quick enough to raise her hand to answer. She took her quill as the professor went over the spell, he told them what it did and then showed them the spell so they could see it. With that though the lesson was then handed over to them and Minnie took her wand, shoved her desk aside and began practicing the spell. She took a few attempts to get anything, but eventually she had something and then she just kept doing it until the ropes that came out of her wand were good, passable. She packed up her things and headed out of the room.

Noel was ready for an new start and to not look back, but look forward. He had been pleased with how his OWLS had gone and worked his butt of. The holliday was fine, he spend time with family in Sweden and it was good to be at the country where his mother had been raised and were his roots were. It had been stupid to tell Liam again about Slytherins win, and he hoped that in his two more years to come he could finally tell Slytherin would not win the quidditch cup. Although Noel liked quidditch, it was not his life. His goal was set on something else, and he was getting closer of reaching it. His grades were very good and now he tried to step up his game. He knew which subjects to follow for what he wanted to do after Hogwarts, so his path was set. But he also wanted to open his heart again on happiness, hopefully with an nice girl. Dating would be something he would not turn his head away from. So he was wondering what the year would bring. His two favorites persons and best friends were now an couple so that was something good at least. And which he was happy about.

The prefect entered the classroom and was excited for the lesson. He made his way to his usual spot and listened as Misha started. When he asked an question ofcourse Hattie was there to answer it before him. He needed to beat those Ravenclaws bad. Since he was ambitious to do even better. He than watched Misha demonstrate, and writed along to what the man told him. When it was time to practice he took out his wand and put his desk to the side. He started practicing the spell and he tried to focus on his own and not around him. After some tries he got the hang of it and he than continued practicing until it was good enough for him and the ropes came out of his wand were good. He than took his stuff and left the room as the lesson was ending.

Aisa headed to the Charms classroom for the next lesson, wondering vaguely what they would be learning today. The girl took her seat, grabbing her book and parchment and quill to make notes if necessary. Professor Haden told them they would be learning the spell Incarcerous, and asked what the spell did. Aisa had done the reading, but was fine with Hattie giving the answer instead. Professor Haden then explained a bit about the spell, before demonstrating it for them as well. Aisa was interested, mostly besausen she thought it would be useful in dueling, as the professor had said. After this, they were told to push the desks to the side to practice. Aisa practiced the spell until she mastered it, feeling pretty proud of herself as she used the spell on a dummy and wrapped it up tightly. She then packed up her things and left the classroom once they were dismissed.

Adorah had done her readings for charms and felt semi-confident that she could produce the spells they would be required to learn this year. Taking her seat, she winked at her girlfriend before pulling out her bookss and notes. Professor Haden had a way about keeping class interesting, and Adorah listened intently as he began speaking. Raising her hand to answer the question, she lowered it when she was not called in, making sure her notes reflected the answer Hattie had correctly given. When it was their turn to practice, Adorah moved her belongings and shook her arms out before putting her wand at the ready. It took a few tries before the ropes actually encapsulated the dummy. Then, it was mostly repetitive work to perfect the flourish of her wand and intent. She didn't care for any of the darker charms and spells they had to learn, but she did suppose this could be useful for a prefect attempting to break up a fight. However, Adorah hoped to never use it. Cleaning up her area after they were dismissed, she headed to the library, practicing the wand movment as she walked along the halls.

Sully had pretty much gotten back into the swing of school by their second week back, though the past few days his brain had been set entirely on Quidditch and nothing else. Gryffindor had been practicing hard and Sully was sure they were gonna be the champions this year. He just had to make it through a few more days and it’d be game time. Taking his seat for Charms, Sully bounced his leg, filled with energy as Professor Haden began explaining the spell they were working on today. He laughed as the professor demonstrating the spell, smiling at the mental image of Noel trying to use it on any rowdy first years and smirking into his palm as Professor Haden continued explaining the spell.

With the demonstration done, Sully hopped to his feet, helping move the desks so they had a clear space to practice. He had a lot of pent of energy so he was glad they were doing some practical work today, squaring up with one of the practice dummies and rolling his shoulders as he drew his wand. It took a couple tries to get his wand to produce any sort of rope or binding, and then he had a little trouble with what Sully might call “over-doing it”, laughing as his dummy became a mess of coiled ropes each time, but he eventually found a decent middlepoint before the class was over. He grabbed his things, feeling a bit less antsy as they moved the desk back and finished up for the day.
