    Lesson One

    Post by Guest on Thu 08 Jul 2010, 04:19

    Prof. Williams was quiet for a moment, absently marking down the students that were here and she studied her students as she waited a moment for her class. Her right hand, which was gripping her wand, was making small circles in the air which was suspending a small muggle basketball. Well... She put her quill down (which she had been writing with her left hand) before she flicked her wand to bounce the basketball off towards the back and let it heavily fall to the ground, making sure it did not bounce this time. Standing up, she smiled warmly at her class.

    "Good morning class! Before we try to learn a few charms. I feel that we should get to know what muggles call Physics. Only we will brush up on it this year, but I will bring it up every year in more detail. There are a few key points in how to make an object in motion, rest and an object at rest, in motion." She said cheerfully. This was always a fun lesson to teach, considering it stumped many.

    "We will touch up on them as you progress, but first I think we should try something simple. Like the Leviation Charm. Or known as Wingardium Leviosa the incantation. Your wand movements are swish and flick. I have a box of feathers I would like you to try this one." she instructed.

    "I would say that in order to cast, the physics apply in swish and flick and your force. If you need me, I'll be here."

    Homework:

    1. What is the charm for today?

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier?

    3. What is the key points of Physics?

    4. How does physics apply to charms?

    5. What is the incantation of todays charm?

    Reina had been practicing swish and flick ever since her first transfiguration class earlier. She picked up her feather and set it down in front of her. She practiced the wrist movement against before trying it out. "Wingardium Leviosa." Nothing. "Wingardium Leviosa." Nothing. "Wingardium Leviosa." Now she was frustrated. "Calm down Reina, just concentrate." She closed her eyes, trying picture the feather in her mind. "Okay, it's stationary now, I want it to move. I want it to float." She opened her eyes and tried again. "Wingardium Leviosa." This time it moved slightly. Reina smiled a little. "Okay, that was better, now." She cleared her throat and thought about the feather. "Wingardium Leviosa!" This time she was able to raise the feather off the ground a few inches. "Wingardium Leviosa!" The feather floated up and she moved it a little bit before letting it float back down. "I did it."

    She praticed a few more times, and then took a break to scribble down the assignment.

    1. What is the charm for today? The Leviation charm

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier? a muggle basketball

    3. What is the key points of Physics? Making an object in motion rest and an object at rest move.

    4. How does physics apply to charms? Charms make objects either move or rest, so they implore the key points of Physics in doing so.

    5. What is the incantation of todays charm? Wingardium Leviosa

    Jennifer listened intently to her professor being looking at the feather. She was supposed to make this thing move? She blinked and took her wand into her hand, meekly swishing it about in a doubtful manner.

    It didn't move.

    She finally remembered the swish and flick and pronounced the Wingardium Leviosa. It took her a few more tries before she finally got it right. She grinned as her feather levitated up into the air before cascading down. She took her quill and began to do her homework.


    1. What is the charm for today? The Levitation Charm

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier? A Muggle Basketball

    3. What is the key points of Physics? Making an Object in motion, rest, and and object at rest, move in motion.

    4. How does physics apply to charms? The force from the magic of a spell can be the same as the force of applying it to an object. Hence why the both move.

    5. What is the incantation of todays charm? Wingardium Leviosa

    Samantha walks into the classroom quietly behind a bunch of eager Ravenclaws. Hiding most of her face behind her long dark hair, she makes her way to the back of the class, hoping no one would notice her.

    At the front of the room, Professor Williams flicks her wand and sends a big orange ball behind her. As she starts speaking, Samantha gets the impression that though the professor seems friendly enough, it would not do to cross her.

    Pulling out a sheaf of parchment, the Slytherin begins to scribble notes and answers to the homework given.

    Alexandra grabbed a seat in the front, ever the eager Ravenclaw. She watched with amusement as her Professor bounced the basketball, thinking that this class was going to be fun. Alexandra got her feather and made her way back to her desk. Now, how was she supposed to make this float? Her father was a muggle, so she knew some muggle things, but physics wasn't really her strong point. Swish and Flick she thought, imaging the feather floating into the air. It was a bit hard to imagine.

    Alexandra slowly did the wand movement and said the incantation, but nothing happened. Swallowing her disappointment, Alexandra reminded herself that it was likely to take a few tries. After three Wingardium Leviosa's, Alexandra's feather rose into the air. Smiling at the hovering feather, Alexandra let it drop back onto the desk and began her homework.

    Homework:

    1. What is the charm for today? The levitation charm.

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier? A basketball.

    3. What is the key points of Physics? Making an object in motion rest, and an object in rest move.

    4. How does physics apply to charms? Physics is about making objects move, and Charms does the same thing using magic.

    Harmony smiled. She had practiced her wand movements all through Transfiguration class, and she felt certain that she could do this one. She looked at the feather on her desk and she grasped her wand.

    "Wingardium Leviosa," she said using the swish and flick motion.

    Though her feather did not rise high at all, it still rose. She cast the spell a few more times before she felt that she got it, before she started on her homework.

    1. What is the charm for today? The charm is Wingardium Leviosa.

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier? A Muggle basketball

    3. What is the key points of Physics? To make an object in motion rest and an object at rest to move.

    4. How does physics apply to charms? Charms either move objects, or let them rest with force and power of a spell. The same thing is applied with force and Physics.

    Pete sat in class and looked around, noticing how quickly everyone else seemed to be catching on. He frowned a bit and ran a hand through his hair before looking at the feather with a bit of trepidation, he had always had a bit of trouble with this spell, either the item didn't lift or it flew too far into the hair.

    Scratching the side of his head with the tip of his wand, he shrugged and gave it a go -doing exactly as the professor said. A huge grin descended up on his features as the item lifted.

    Catherine smiled. The basketball had been unexpected. This class looked like it was going to be interesting.

    "Wingardium leviosa." she said. "Wingardium leviosa." Next she picked up her wand. The method had worked in transfiguration, maybe she could apply it here. She moved her hand in the way that the Prof. had said. Simple really. She narrowed her eyes. That feather was going down. Well, up, actually, but, well. Cathy stopped thinking for a minute and hit her temple with the heel of her palm. Shaking her head she turned her attention back to the feather, mind now clear.

    "Wingardium leviosa." The feather hovered a couple of centimetres, but fell down again.

    She tried again, more forcefully this time. The more force, the more movement...

    It raised a bit more, and she managed to hold it this time. Yes!

    Picking up her quill, she briskly began the homework.

    "Homework:

    1. What is the charm for today?
    The levitation charm.

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier?
    A basketball.

    3. What is the key points of Physics?
    The application of forces to objects at rest, to cause motion, and objects in motion, to cause rest.

    4. How does physics apply to charms?
    The magic of the charm is the force that is acting on the object, here to cause motion.

    5. What is the incantation of todays charm?
    Wingardium Leviosa"

    Catherine smiled at the parchment in front of her. Yay!

    Bri was so excited to go to her second class, and felt confident. She had only gotten lost one time on the way to this class, unlike her first one in which she had gotten lost so many times she had just barely made it on time. Bri was a little early for this class.

    She rushed in and said hello to her friends as she had with her first class and then sat in a seat near the front, but not on the very first row. She smiled at the professor as she begun the lesson. Bri was very attentive.

    Bri stared at the feather in front of her concentrating very hard on what she was doing. Maybe this would go better than Transfiguration. Bri moved her wand in a swish and flick motion just as the teacher had and said "Wingardium Leviosa!" And pointed her wand at the feather. She must of said it wrong or something because it only hovered about an inch off of the desk for about two seconds.

    Bri sighed and pulled out her quill and parchment to begin her homework. Writing homework was the easiest part of this whole magic stuff.

    1. What is the charm for today? Wingardium Leviosa, to make things levitate.

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier? A small muggle basketball.

    3. What is the key points of Physics? Making an object in motion rest, and an object at rest to move.

    4. How does physics apply to charms? Because using this charm you are making something move, and these charms make this same thing happen, just in a magical way.

    5. What is the incantation of todays charm? Wingardium Leviosa.

    Aurora walked into class and picked a seat in the middle of the room. She was on an otherwise empty desk, which she didn't mind.
    Over the summer, she had been reading a few school books in preparation, and she was thankful that she had come across this charm, and studied it as thoroughly as one can without actually using any magic.
    She picked up her feather and took it over to her desk.
    She took a deep breath, and went over the familliar swish and flick movement a few times, before putting her knowledge into practise. "Wingardium Leviosa." She said.
    The charm, unfortunately, did not work on the first few attempts.
    On attempt 5, Rory successfully lifted her feather up to the ceiling and back down again.
    When she was convinced that she had mastered the charm, she took out her quill and ink, and completed her home work

    1. What is the charm for today? The Levitation charm

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier? A muggle basketball

    3. What is the key points of Physics?How to make objects in motion rest, and how to make objects in rest be in motion

    4. How does physics apply to charms? The forces of magic can match one of the forces which makes objects move naturally, and certain spells are designed to do this.

    Rebecca entered the classroom and watched the Professor float a ball of some sorts in the air. She sat down in a seat and waited for the Professor to begin. The lesson itself, onc the Professor started, seemed to be straight forward. Rebecca took notes and then practiced the charm herself. Finally after several tries the feather floated on the air in front of her and she was able to make it move up and down, and left and right. Rebecca smiled as she got down to the homework. It was a fun lesson and she couldn't wait for more.

    Homework:

    1. What is the charm for today? Leviation Charm

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier? Something the Professor called a Muggle basketball.

    3. What is the key points of Physics? Making objects move that are at rest and making moving objects rest.

    4. How does physics apply to charms? Charms are the magical ways to make objects either move or rest. Physics uses physical force and Charms uses magic.

    Entering the Charms classroom Raven quickly took an empty seat and listened to the professor. He groaned. It had to be a Levitation Charm, didn't it? Pouting he took a feather and glared at it. 'Swish and flick, swish and flick,' Raven told himself. A feather shouldn't be that difficult to levitate. Looking around he watched as the other students picked up on it right away.
    "Right. Wingardium Leviosa." Raven muttered and did the wand movement. He smiled when the feather rose, not much, but at least it wasn't lying still on his desk.

    Walking into the classroom Tsuki sat and listened to what the professor had said. On her first try her feather floated for about a split second then flopped back onto the table. Tsuki looked around and copied what a few people were doing,

    "Wingardium Leviosa"

    The feather flew up and smacked into the ceiling, after a few more times Tsuki had finally got the hang of it so she went onto her homework.

    Melissa worked on pronunciation first, repeating the spell over and over until it sounded like she had it right. Then she practiced wand movements. After she felt like she had it down pretty well, she tried them together. To her great surprise, the wand floated slightly above the desk for a few seconds. In her surprise, she released the spell and the feather fell back to the desk.

    Melissa grinned. "Practice makes perfect," she recited quietly, and got to work.

    Rezika walked into the classroom happily. Her first time with the feather, it did not move. Then, remembering that the swish and flick was important, she made her movements a bit cleaner, and the feather floated...sort of. She sighed in frustration, then tried again and the feather floated in the air for thirty seconds before dropping back down. Grinning, she began on the homework.

    1. What is the charm for today? The Levitation Charm

    Emma listened carefully and grimaced at the prospect of learning muggle physics. Her father had many times tried to explain the concept to her but, if she were honest, she would have to say she really disliked the subject. Knowing that there was no way around learning the muggle science, she turned to look at the feather and smiled. This was a spell that her mother had thought her before coming to Hogwarts, after she had caught her climbing onto the kitchen counters to reach the cookie jar. Taking out her wand she pointed it at the feather and performed the spell like her mother and Professor Williams had told her, "Wingardium Leviosa." She barely resisted the urge to exaggerate the movement like she had before to annoy her mother.

    Theresa walked into the class room and sat at an empty seat. She listened to the Professor before looking at the feather. She blinked, she didn't think she would be able to do this but shrugged to herself as she lifted her wand. She practised the wand movement a few times before saying as clearly as she could "Wingardium Leviosa". She slumped back in her seat when nothing happened. She continued to try the spell until the feather eventually moved. She grinned as she watched the feather.

    Will frowned at the feather. If there was any subject he had tried that yielded perfect results, if any at all, it'd be Charms.

    Refusing to be intimidated by such a stupid little thing, he swished his wand expertly and then snapped it at the feather. "Wingardium Leviosa!"

    It didn't move. His eyes quickly moving around to see if anyone noticed his failure and he breathed. Everyone was too busy trying on their own.

    Rolling up his sleeves, he tried again, this time with more effort. "Wingardium Leviosa!" He looked excitedly as it moved a bit, but it drained when he noticed that a student merely set her arm down to make it move. He did tried it three more times and yet nothing. His eyebrow twitched.

    Displeased, he moved to his homework.

    1. What is the charm for today? The Levitation Charm

    2. What object was being bounced around earlier? Some sort of muggle object called a ballbasket, or something.

    4. How does physics apply to charms? To follow the same principle as physics, but to manipulate it with magic.

    5. What is the incantation of today's charm? Wingardium Leviosa.


    He dropped his quill and glared at the feather. More individual practice is in order. He mentally checked it on his list.

    Will looked at Raven, clearly annoyed. He stuck his nose up in the air. "Prat," He said with a small pout. "I'll get it eventually. This is something that just needs more practice on is all. We can't be perfect at everything on the first try." He glared at the simple feather.

    "And I will beat you, you smug git! You hear me? A Black always succeeds!" He didn't even register the stunned faces of the students nearby, only staring intimidatingly at his arch-nemesis.
