It was very strange, returning to classes without having actually gone anywhere over the holidays. She hoped the students had managed to have fun with their friends and blow off some steam, enjoy some silly snowball fights and the lack of classes, but she wondered how long it would be before cabin fever set in. Were they going to start squabbling like her daughters had done when cooped inside too much over rainy days when they’d been smaller? She definitely didn’t feel relaxed and rejuvenated. She felt tired and run down.

“Good morning class,” she greeted them. “Today, we have a wintry lesson,” the enchanted snow had faded from the paths once Midterm was over, but that didn’t mean the weather was warm yet. In spite of being in Arizona, the climate of Sonora resembled that of Ireland, thanks to some cunning weather charms and homesickness on the part of the founders. And Ireland was cold in January.

“We will be making gloves today. They don’t have to be warm ones, this spell will work to produce any type of glove. First years will start with a cloth bag, second years with a paper one. The spell is chirothecae,” the chalk wrote it out on the board behind her, along with the pronunciation. Kee-ROH-tae-ka. “Roll the r if you can,” she advised, demonstrating the pronunciation again slowly. “You will want to make a punctuated wand movement with a flick on each syllable, plus one additional flick at the end - one for each finger and the thumb,” she demonstrated, “Small, circular wrist motions between each flick,” she advised.

“As usual, you will get a better mark if your gloves are detailed, pretty or otherwise well-designed. Any questions?” she asked, “Ok. You may begin. And if you feel at all ill, please tell me sooner rather than later...”

OOC - posts will be marked on length, relevance, creativity and realism. If your character is having any issues/causing accidental magical damage/dropping down with a fever, please tag me in the subject line.

              Dorian took a moment to process Tatya’s first remark, and in that time Professor Skies had come over. So by the time he realised Tatya had said I want to go home, the teacher was already there and... more
              • It’s probably inevitable.Tatiana , Sat Jun 30 23:04
                Dorian putting his hand on her arm had never occurred to Tatiana as a remotely strange or noteworthy thing for him to do, and him putting a hand on her shoulder did not register as much more... more

                  “Merci,” he smiled, when Tatya complimented him on being a good friend. Dorian always tended to look slightly surprised by the compliments he received, but also very touched, and it was one of the... more

                    “It just says it all not-same,” grumbled Tatiana, glaring and waving toward the word on the board. “Not like always, or like we do – glupyi letters.” Nothing to do, though, but try again, and try to... more

      Parker was feeling good about this Transfiguration class. A sentence he would have laughed at a year before, mainly because it took so long for him to get boots right. Now as he sat in class wearing... more

          PParker nodded to Gary's comment about math. He'd honestly never thought of math that way, and if he had thought about math at all since he'd come to Sonora, it was that he didn't have to study it... more
