Summers sat on the edge of his desk as he waited for the first years to enter and gestured for them to take their seats once they did. As soon as everyone was ready, he did a quick roll call before flicking his wand toward the blackboard that hung along the back of the room. The inanimate piece of chalk sprang to life and wrote up a short, simple sentence.

Transfiguration and the Ministry of Magic

"Let's get started. Now, Transfiguration is a powerful branch of magic, as I'm sure you've all figured out by now. It's complex, but vast in it's capabilities, which is what makes it dangerous. Some people choose to follow darker paths and use Transfiguration as a weapon. As such, the Ministry of Magic has rules and punishments in place that center around this subject and its misuse. Using transfiguration on another human, or even an animal, being for the purposes of harming them or simply your own entertainment will incur these punishments." Summers paused, casting a glance across the first years present and ensuring they were paying attention. They needed to understand that Transfiguration was not like your usual jinxes and hexes. There were consequences for using it against others.

As soon as he was certain everyone was listening, he continued. "This doesn't stop at just using Transfiguration on other people. Using it on yourself has it's own laws as well. As you saw last lesson, I am capable of changing into a canine at will. The few people who have this ability are known as animagi, witches and wizards who have mastered Transfiguration to the point of altering their physical selves into an intelligent creature that most represents them. Animagus must be registered with the Ministry of Magic, with the individuals forms and markings so that they can be identified."

"Even inanimate objects can be dangerous. Most weapons are inanimate objects. There are also some specific objects that are classed as "muggle artefacts" - things created by non-magical people that are a specific invention of theirs, meaning that if we would like them, we have to obtain them the non-magical way rather than by simply waving a wand and having it without any effort given. This muggle class is the reason flying carpets are outlawed in most countries, but broomsticks are not. At the end of the day, there are numerous ways to abuse Transfiguration and each of its branches, which we'll be covering more in-depth in future lessons. Unfortunately, that's all we really have time for today. If you're interested, you can read up on more about it in the library. Class dismissed!"

Flynn was hopeful that maybe, just maybe, he might be able to learn a new spell in this lesson. Though, when he sat down and the words appeared on the board, it instantly seemed otherwise and looked as though he was in for a lecture. Instantly all his interest was sapped, slouching back in his seat and huffing a sigh as he folded his arms across his chest in the optimal 'not really paying attention' position. The Professor probably expected him to take notes or something, but Flynn could hardly be bothered to do that and hardly cared about remembering any of this. The best part of having magic was actually learning the magic, all that other boring stuff he couldn't care less about. The whole lesson was a complete bore and by the end of it, Flynn was more than ready to leave and find something exciting to do with his time instead.

Ronald enter the 2nd lesson of Transfiguration class, Ronald see that Professor Summers wait to us to complte our classroom. When Gryffindor and Slytherin 1st years are complete, Professor Summers start to discuss our lesson, Ronald excited to try what kind spell to transform to inanimate or animate form that will be use, but Professor Summers try to discuss the conseguences to try Transfiguration in bad situation.

Transfuguration and Ministry Magic title of our lesson I try to listen to Professor Summers and try to analyze what kind rules and punishment that will be given, Ronald realize Transfiguration subject powerful branch of magic that will be have big responsibilty.

One that was intersting discussion topic of Animagi Person transform in intelligent creature reprrsent the perin (Ronald want to try become animagi someday I want to be a Cat or Tiger if I will be choose to become Animagi), If your a kind of Animagi form youre responsibilty registered in ng Ministry of Magic to be identified.

Last topic for inanimate object that very dangerous, to become weapons if you use it in the bad way in the muggle world they have also object that represent the muggle like wizard we have a wand, I realize that Respecting to each other like if your wizard or muggle because if you dont like to do the bad thing, will be more peacefull word, Next lesson im so excited to try our 1st Transfiguration magic.

Ronald comeback in thier common room try to read the topic about Transfiguration this book, will be borrow at the library.

Ruben entered the transfiguration class, he was certain that they would not be covering any spells yet as Professor Summers said last class that they firstly need to learn the theoretical part of Transfiguration before they could start doing any actual transfiguration spells.
Today's topic seem to be related to the Ministry of Magic, the Slytherin boy thought that being on the Ministry was probably the most boring job ever, they had rules for almost everything making things a lot less fun then they should be.
He listened to Professor Summer but didn't take a lot of notes, this didn't seem something important as the general idea that they stayed with was the the Ministry had rules for animagi and even for simpler transfigurations like inanimate to inanimate. Like Ruben thought, rules for everything.
Finally when the class was over he left the room wondering if next class would still be a lecture or if they were going to start transfigurating something. He guessed it was a lecture, otherwise the professor would have told them to bring their wands.

Blake tried her best to look like another version of herself. After last week's unfortunate events she could not bear having Professor Summer looking at her so she tied her hair into a ballerina bun and put on her glasses, they looked like actual seeing glasses but they were just an accessory. She decided to wear some jeans, knee length heeled boots and an oversized knitted sweater. She glanced at the mirror before leaving the dorm to make sure she was unrecognisable. She decided to also leave her bag and just carry the books on her hands.
Once she arrived at the classroom everyone looked at her. She could not fool anyone, she was still as good looking as ever, even if she tried not to. Once a pretty girl, always a pretty girl. She tried her best to ignore the looks that people gave her, she tried to pretend that they were just mistaken and she wasn't the Blake that pet Professor Summers but she was already blushing.
The class took forever to end, Blake could not wait to leave the place. She wasn't even wearing whatever Professor Summers was saying, she was just doodling on her notebook and pretending to be writing but she wasn't actually hearing anything. She hoped they would forget this next class, if not, well, she would always have next year.

Veronica walked in in the classroom, this was one of her favourite classes. She was slightly surprised that Professor Summers was in his animagus form like last week. She couldn't help but be amazed by the whole concept of animagus, she had never met anyone that was one. Even her father, with a huge social circle didn't have an animagus friend, he'd be mind blown to know about Professor Summers, if he had time for her that is.
As soon as the professor made the words "Ministry of Magic" appear she knew this wasn't going to be a fun class. She did love Transfiguration but it had so many rules that it was honestly exhausting, she did not have the mental strength for another boring lecture, Hogwarts was all fun and games until you were actually AT Hogwarts, and spoiler alert it was not fun at all. Aside from the parties, dances, food and the whole magic school concept, Hogwarts was a place full of rules and boring lectures, students were not even allowed to go to the forest alone!
Luckily for Veronica, and all the others, the class went by quickly, Professor Summers at least didn't bored them to death with this lecture, he actually had some consideration for them and tried not to tear down their excitment. Veronica left the room hoping that next week they would preform some sort of spell and get done with lectures.

Harper eagerly made her way towards the Transfiguration classroom. It might not be the most fun class she had this semester, but it was definitely one of the most interesting. Hopefully there would be more demonstrations today. She wanted her comfy armchair back. Upon entering the room, Harper immediately saw that Professor Summers was sitting at his desk in his human form, which was a bit disappointing. If she could shapeshift into an animal, she'd show off her abilities whenever possible.

Professor Summers began to lecture, and Harper took notes. As he spoke about rules against transfiguring another person, she wondered if tricking someone eating something that caused transfiguration counted. Because if it did, she knew a certain someone who could use a conversation or two with the Ministry. Professor Summers went on to explain that shapeshifters were called animagi. Unfortunately, he didn't give many more details about how one actually becomes an animagus or whether there were people who could shapeshift into multiple animals.

Harper found the talk about transfiguration and muggle artifacts to be confusing. She didn't really see the difference between a flying carpet and charming a rug to fly. There was a lot of information to absorb, so she focused on just writing down as much information as possible. Maybe she'd ask Professor Summers a couple of questions after class or check out the library. It was times like these that she really missed Google. Class ended soon after without a single magical demonstration, leaving Harper disappointed. Hopefully that would change in future lessons.

Skylar walked into her second Transfiguration lesson, curious as to what it would be about this week. She hoped they'd move on to some actual Transfiguration, rather than just rules and lectures, but unfortunately it wasn't going to be that way, since the Professor began speaking about the Ministry of Magic and the dangers of using Transfiguration in the wrong way. Skylar breathed a sigh of disappointment, she was pretty sure most of this was just common sense anyway. She sat back in her chair anyway, and tried to listen as best as she could, taking the occasional note, but no matter how hard she tried to focus, she just kept falling into a daydream.

She began to listen again as Professor Summers began to talk about being an Animagi, something that Skylar thought was pretty cool and she definitely wanted to become one if she could, but unfortunately, the Professor didn't reveal anything about how he'd become one, or about what the process actually involved. Disappointed once again, Skylar propped her chin up with her hand before zoning out and daydreaming about what she could buy the next time she went to Brightstone Village.

Not long after, the lesson was thankfully over, and Skylar packed up her stuff before quickly exiting the class, glad to have another Transfiguration lesson over and done with. Now she only hoped the next one would be better.

Saira walked into the classroom with her book bag in hand. Transfigurations was a decent subject, it wasn't too boring, but it wasn't too fun either. She knew that they would probably still be doing theory rather than learning any spells and Saira was fine with that. She took a seat and prepared a sheet of parchment and her quill for note taking.

Today's lesson was a lecture on using transfiguration and it had a lot to cover, but Saira was able to understand most of what Professor Aeons discussed and was able to keep up with the lesson. By the end of class her parchment was filled with messy notes and small scribbles that she wrote on the side. She decided to arrange them later so that it was much easier to review when exams came.

Ivy was glad her dad seemed happy with her grades so far, but she knew she had to keep it up. She wanted to be perfect, to get the best grades in her class. But she also wanted to stand out in class and answer all the questions, and that was proving a bit tricky. But there was also a part of Ivy that wanted to do other things. Explore the castle, have fun with friends. So far, she hadn't made as many friends as she had hoped. Partly because she was very focused on her studies, and partly because the others just didn't seem to really get her. At least Brooke and Delilah seemed to understand the urgency in doing well in class.

Professor Summers started the lesson by writing a sentence on the blackboard, and Ivy was immediately eager to get started. This sounded like an interesting subject. The professor launched into a lecture, and Ivy quickly took notes. She knew the Ministry of Magic was important, and was happy to hear they were involved with rules and punishments for powerful magic. Ivy noted down what the professor said about laws and rules that had to do with transfiguration, both on others and on yourself. She added a note about animagi, wondering if she would ever be one herself. She wasn't even sure if someone who was part veela could also be an animagus, and pushed the thought away. She would be able to if she tried hard enough, surely. The lecture was interesting, but a bit short in her opinion. She was sad when it was over, and finished writing down notes before packing up her things. She left the classroom once they were dismissed.
