Gray looked up when he heard something begin whistling like a teakettle - very distinctly like a teakettle - because he knew that he had not put any spells on anything to make that happen. Loud noises were not one of his favorite things, particularly in class; for one thing it was just annoying and for another, more practical, reason, it might make it difficult to notice if there was a problem somewhere else in the room. Before he had to get up and go address the situation, however, the first year who seemed responsible - Mordue, he thought; there were two of them in the class now - managed to get the situation back under control, or at least quiet it down, so he chalked it up to Beginner’s errors and went back to reading over some tickets-out-the-door from the Intermediate class.

A moment later, however, another noise from the same part of the room drew his attention again, and this one seemed like a significantly larger error than whatever Nathaniel had done. It involved confetti. Gray rose from his desk and walked quickly toward the source of trouble, where he found Parker Fitzgerald with…something...on the desk in front of him, something Gray very definitely had not put in the box. He also was sitting next to Mr. Mordue. Oh, this was just fabulous….

”A Bird-Fish”, said Parker.

“I...suppose that is one way to describe it,” replied Gray, more than a little dryly. He tried not to use too much sarcasm with or even around students, he really did, but sometimes it just slipped out, and sometimes it was just the only possible response. “Finite incantatem,” he said, using the full incantation himself because of just how radical the transformation of the object was. It occurred to him that this was a teachable moment for the class, but first, he had to deal with the two boys.

“Gentlemen, I know it’s fun to play around with Charms sometimes, but if you could both do your assignments first, I’d appreciate it,” he said. “I hadn’t noticed either of you showing your objects to me to see if you’d removed all the enchantments, and I can see that you haven’t finished yet, Mr. Mordue.” Of course, Parker’s was now useless due to an adult having cancelled all its enchantments, so he’d have to get another one for the second year to use. He Summoned the box wordlessly and put it on the desk in front of Parker, assuming that the order to take a new object from the limited supply remaining would speak for itself. Once Parker had something, Gray carried the box and the vase back to the front of the room.

He wanted to take Parker’s wand and run priori incantatem on it, because now that he thought of it, it was...not normal. A second year managing, apparently off the top of his head, a Transfiguration of that scale? Accidental magic could have dramatic results, but Parker should have had that well under control by now, plus nothing had happened in class that should have produced undue stress for the boy. So what had happened there? He thought he might tell Selina about this incident in more than passing, unlike the thing with Jozua and Lily - she was the Transfiguration teacher and could tell him if it was as odd as he thought it was. Hopefully she wouldn’t regard it as a waste of her time, because to him it looked like something that might want an eye on it - whether it was that Parker was a superwizard or that the mischief which had infected the Intermediate class was possibly spreading down to the Beginners as well.

  • It worked! Parker had made it stop on the first try. Though not necessarily a minor miracle, it made him feel more accomplished with this magic stuff then he had since the last time he had been on a... more

        OOC: Sorry, Parker, I misread your original post and thought it was your vase which transformed. The last two paragraphs should have read: “Gentlemen, I know it’s fun to play around with Charms... more
