Transfiguration 7:2

Professor Styx was wandering around the classroom as the students arrived, placing a small box with holes in it on each desk. "Welcome! I want to get things rolling quickly. Take a seat." She smiled as she placed the last box out and returned to her own desk in the front of the room.

"Today we will be focusing on untransfiguration and nonverbal spells. Does anyone remember what untransfiguration is?" she asked the class. A student raised their hand. "Yes?" she asked, pointing to the student who raised their hand first. She nodded. "You must have been paying attention last lesson. Great answer." She paused, then started to pace the aisle between the desks. "In the boxes on your desk you contain frogs. You will be transfiguring them into grasshoppers and back to frogs, using nonverbal spells. Just for review, who can tell me what the spell is for this transfiguration?" she asked. She nodded at another student, who gave her the correct spell. "Exactly."

"The main thing to remember is to focus. You don't want to be thinking of a dog or cat and end up with a very odd animal. You will use the three tap method of course. You may verbalize the spell, but I would like each of you to also practice it non-verbally. You will change the frog to a grasshopper, then back to a frog, like this."
She moved to the closest desk and opened the box. She took out the frog and placed it on the desk, tapping it three times. With a bit of a poof, the frog quickly became a grasshopper. Another three taps and the frog was back. "Any questions before we begin?" she asked. Seeing none, she gave the students the go ahead to start practicing.



Homework: RP the lesson. First poster answer the first question, second person answer the second question. Good luck!

Emily didn't know if she had done enough at Hogwarts. In the seven years she had been at the school she had wanted to do so much more. Maybe she should have tried to take more OWLS, or something else that was academically pleasing. She had joined the Quidditch team, but that wasn't the thing for her. Although it had been nice to be a part of something, she never felt like she belonged in the team. She wasn't as much into the sport as the rest was. Emily filled her bag with books and the rest of the items she needed and left her dorm to go to the first lesson of the day.

When she arrived at the classroom she sat down in the back. Emily listened to the Professor and raised her hand for the first question and someone else got picked. When the Professor asked a second one her hand raised back up again. She was picked
''It is Locusta'' Emily said to the Professor. She looked at her little froggy and grabbed her wand. She tapped the frog three times and thought about the spell and what she wanted. The frog transformed into a grasshopper and she three tapped it again so it became a frog again. She showed it to the Professor and after that she left the classroom.

The semester was properly underway now and Elliot was surprised how quickly he’d fallen back into things. He’d thought that this year would be different, being their last, but despite the lingering anxiety about his NEWT exams, Elliot found things were much the same as his previous years. Taking a seat for transfiguration, Elliot craned his neck curiously as Professor Styx placed some boxes on her desk. Professor Styx asked for the definition on untransfiguration and Elliot cautiously raised his hand. “It’s basically a reversal of the transfiguration,” he said, smiling sheepishly when Professor Styx praised him. He’d always been baffled how someone who seemed as pleasant as this Professor Styx could be married to the other one.

Once Professor Styx had finished explaining today’s task, Elliot glanced down at the box on his desk, peering at his frog thoughtfully. His non-verbal magic was still not the best, but he hoped he could manage Locusta. Professor Styx had made it seem so easy, so Elliot drew his wand hopefully, giving the frog three taps and thinking the incantation as loudly as he could. It was difficult though, focusing on doing the magic without moving his lips while also focusing on his end transfiguration. Elliot felt like he spent half the class just trying to get his frog to a grasshopper, slumping back relieved when he finally managed it. Now he just had to undo it. The untransfiguration did seem to come easier though, only taking a few failed attempts until Elliot had a frog again. He supposed it might be due to him having spent so long staring at his frog before, but he wasn’t complaining, ready to pack up now that he was exhausted from the lesson.

Cyzarine had gotten easily back into the Hogwarts swing of things, she was working hard on her newts and balancing the patrolling and the heta omega. She had already met up with new leader of the brotherhood and had with him decided that they might think about another blind dating for the yuleball, since it had worked before she was rather eager for it, additionally too that Cyzarine this time would have enough warning that she would be able to put herself up for it rather than not as she had last time. But that was still a bit of time away and there were a number of things that she had to do in prep for it and there was a lot that she had to do currently, lots she had to prepare just for her classes. She was a NEWT student afterall. Cyzarine gathered the last few things that she would need for the day, she got herself dressed and pinned her prefect’s badge on to her uniform. Cyzarine made sure that she had everything and then put her hair up in a messy bun and then headed out of the dorm and to her first class of the day.

Cyzarine walked into the transfiguration classroom and greeted the professor before she took her usual spot in the room. Her gaze moved to the professor at the front of the room as the woman got started. Cyzarine had taken out her wand and placed it down in front of her but the professor was giving them a lecture. She listened and nodded to the answers. It became rather obvious to her what they would be doing. She nodded as the professor gave them a few last instructions before giving them all a frog. She wanted to be able to do the spell verbally, thinking she would have a slightly easier time with it but the professor didn’t want that. She therefore had to point her wand silently at the frog and within a few minutes and a few tries it had changed from a frog to a grasshopper, it took her a few more tries before she was able to get it to change back but she eventually did. She practiced the spell and undoing the spell until the professor wrapped up the lesson and dismissed them.
