Mason Peterson [Draco]
Can you feel the attraction?
Tue Mar 5, 2013 23:20

Mason was not generally excited for Magical Sciences. The class was never something overly exciting like Defense Against the Dark Arts. Magical Sciences tended to just be there. It wasn't ever something that really kept him on his toes. So it was no surprise that as he made his way through the hallways on this rather dull day that he was thinking about many other things. Most of the thoughts in his brain revolved around a certain person and if she was going to be in class. The twelve-year old tried not to think too much about her because he found that if he thought about her too much he wasn't able to focus on the more important things. Like classes.

He arrived at the classroom and chose a seat close to the middle because he didn't like being so close that the professor was in your face, but he didn't want to look like a slacker. The middle also allowed him to become another face in the crowd; someone that wouldn't be easily noticed. He took out his notebook and set his wand down beside it and grabbed a pen from his pocket. He tapped his pen on his desk as he waited for Professor Rosse to start the lesson.

Today's lesson looked like it was going to be a continuation of magnets. The brown-haired boy was not fond of the ongoing lessons they had been talking about so he tried to do his best to take notes that would be concise and helpful later on when he was looking at them. His eyes generally drifted around the room searching for Effy but he did his best to keep his focus on the man dressed in the weird robes with fish on them. Professor Rosse had an eccentric taste in clothing, but for the most part the Magical Sciences professor was one of Mason's favorites. He was always in a somewhat peppy mood and generally seemed to like the subject he taught.

When the time came to make their own magnets he decided he would wait for the rush of people to subside before he got up and took his own magnets. As he made his way back to his desk and stared at the pieces he had in his hand. He wasn't sure how long this was supposed to take or if it was supposed to be difficult, so he just decided to give it a try. He set his needle and magnet down on the desk and began running the magnet over the needle. The brown-eyed boy wasn't sure how many times he was supposed to do this so he did it a few times and then set it in his dish. He remembered that the professor had mentioned something about having to use a spell to make the needle hover, but he couldn't remember the spell so he just went to the front and used the water.

Once he returned to his desk he set his dish down and realized he had no idea how to test his compass or whatever the heck he had just made. He turned to the person next to him and asked, "Hey do you know how we're supposed to test which way is north and such? I have no idea which direction we're currently pointing and I don't know the directions of this room." He gave them a confused smile and shrugged his shoulders a bit. He hoped they have some sort of information because he had none whatsoever.
