As was usual for Takuya he was stood just in front of his desk, with his lesson all prepared. He was really enjoying teaching the young years, this was only the second week, but it was a different kind of challenge. He smiled, and greeted the students warmly as they entered the room. His teaching methods were perhaps more suited to older students, but he figured that if he treated them well, they would do the same for him. Soon enough, it appeared that all of the students had arrived and he cleared his throat slightly to grab their attention, "Good morning third years, today we'll start with a thankfully short lecture and then you lot will get to practice one of the two spells I'm talking about. If you did the reading today will be a breeze" he announced trying to draw in their attention and hoping that despite the fact that they'd begin with a boring lecture, that they'd listen long enough to be able to do the spell without much help. The man stood from his desk and with a wave of his wands the names of the two spells that they would be covering today appeared written on the board, Cheering Charm and Locomotion Charm, "Now, I'm sure you lot can figure out what both of these respective spells do, the clue is in the name, so, who can tell me what the cheering charm does?" he said as he waited a few seconds for a number of students to put up their hands, before pointing to a random student to answer. Since the answer the student gave was correct the professor happily grinned "Excellent, take five house points. The Cheering Charm is used to cheer another person up, or make them happy. I repeat, cheer another person up," he tried to give emphasis before moving on, he was sure that the students had got it, "While the Locomotion Charm allows you to move things using magic," Takuya explained to his students calmly glancing at each of them in turn.


"Let's begin with the Cheering Charm. The incantation and wand movement can be found in your book but we'll be focusing on theory for this spell, if you did the reading you'll already know the incantation and wand movement" he said as he waited for the students to catch on with what he was saying while the others were trying to take down notes, "Now that you know it's use, there are a few other things to learn about it. A limitation of this spell is that it is only for humans, it may be possible to use them on animals, yes, but I have not heard of such experimentation and we will not be doing that as well, plus you should definitely not be going around using the cheering charm on animals since the side effects are very unknown," he calmly told his students in case they wondered or got too curious of the spell, charms could occasionally be quite dangerous. "To perform a spell to cheer up, you, as the caster, needs to be able to feel happiness as well. To perform the spell, you must concentrate on happiness. Happy thoughts, memories, whatever. The effects of the cheering charm varies widely and it is possible to overuse the spell," Takuya discussed as his eyes focused on the students before him, trying to ensure they kept their attention on him, "The least you could do with the spell is to make another person feel a sense of contentment and the effect for it's overuse is making one go through a fit of hysterics. Particularly laughter. It would seem as if they were going crazy with the non-stop laughter," he mused with wonder as he himself had once seen its effects though it has been a long time since then, "If you are wondering why I have not planned an activity for this, it's because the Cheering Charm deals with a person's emotions. It is something personal and I believe, even in the sense of academics, there should be limits upon it, although if you really desire to try the spell, you can practice it after class within this room," he said with a fond smile before moving on to the next part of his lesson.


"Now, for the Locomotion Charm. I won't take too much time with this one. Since there's not much to say, and I'm sure you lot all want to get started on practicing it," Takuya said raising his voice slightly so that the ones not listening would be shaken from their daze, "The spell's success relies on the caster's capability in magic and their concentration. The heavier the object, the harder it will be. Same with quantity. The larger in number, the harder it will be," he said as he picked up one brick from the corner of the room, which had up until that point been hidden by a blanket and placed it on his desk, "The incantation is Locomotor and there's no wand movement except to point at it and if you're successful, the object should follow the direction of your wand," the professor explained as he took a step back from his desk, so that all the students could see as he pointed his wand at the brick settled on his desk. "Locomotor," and the brick hovered in the air before moving to the right, following the movement of his own wand until he had placed it back with the stack of bricks. With a silent mutter, he ended the spell. "Now, I want you to practice on the bricks until you have mastered the spell and once you're done, you're free to leave," he announced with a smile before flicking his wand and each brick had settled itself into each student's desk. With everything in order, he started to wander around the classroom and check on everyone's progress before they all left his class, giving advice and answering questions if need be.

Since they weren't very busy yet Chloë had read up on the spells the professor had told them they needed to, feeling quite ready for today's lesson. She wasn't too bothered by having to sit through a little part of lecturing first if they'd get plenty of time to practice the spells later. She put her hand up into the air when the professor asked them a question, happy to be picked to answer it. "It cheers someone up." She answered, the name of the spell pretty much self-explanatory although someone who hadn't read about it might have slightly different ideas about what the spell did. Chloë scribbled along as the professor continued lecturing, trying to keep things short but still clear enough so she'd understand her own notes. When they got to the hands on part of the lesson she put her notes away and looked at the brick that was now in front of her for a couple of seconds. It seemed heavy. Wasn't heavy more difficult? Then again they were in their third year already so perhaps they wouldn't always start of with something easy like a quill or whatever. Chloë concentrated on the brick and the spell as well as she could, repeating the incantation in her head a couple of times like she usually did before actually giving it a go. Her first attempts weren't extremely succesful. She got the brick to move, but not as good or as much as she wanted to. Gathering all her focus she tried again, pointing her wand at the brick and clearly articulating the incantation. "Locomotor." This time, she managed to keep control of the brick as she made it move around and eventually had it land on her desk once again. When the lesson was dismissed Chloë left the room, content with how she had managed the spell.

After the blanket fort building last week, Nicole was curious what they'd be covering in Charms today, taking her seat as Professor Blaze got started covering the spells. It was only their second week back, and Nicole was trying not be overwhelmed at the idea of covering two spells in one lesson. She knew their classes would get harder this year, but it was still a step up. Professor Blaze explained the cheering charm to them, and Nicole took careful notes. She was kind of glad they wouldn't be practicing it in class just yet, but with how sad her Valentine's day was shaping up to be, Nicole wondered if she wouldn't benefit from it.

Next, Professor Blaze moved onto the locomotion charm, revealing and demonstrating with a brick. She wasn't sure if it was the best idea to unleash the class on a bunch of bricks, but she hoped no one messed up too bad and got hurt. Picking up a brick and her wand, Nicole looked at the brick speculatively, trying to concentrate as she pointed her wand at the brick with a sharp flick. "Locomotor- Oh Merlin, sorry!" She called, shocked as the flick caused her brick to shoot across the room, slamming hard into the wall. "I'm so sorry professor, I'll be more careful," She gushed, collecting her brick, face bright red. She hoped no one else saw that, but it'd made enough noise she doubted it. More meek this time, Nicole tried to quietly practice in her own corner instead, still embarrassed. It was harder to get the brick to move with her now timid casting, but Nicole managed to budge it in a small circle before class ended, relieved she could stop before she launched any more bricks awhile and hurried from class.
