History of Magic L1 - Creation of Hogwarts [ALL YEARS]

Post by Guest on Sun Sep 08, 2013 9:57 pm


Please post your entrances to the classroom. In a few days' time, I shall begin the lesson.


The classroom is torch-lit and shows various hints of a Slytherin professor.


If this is your first time posting in the class, please state so in your post so I can be sure to add you a journal!


**Students, do not worry about the Journals. I will take care of everything**

Regulus yawned, opening the door. He looked over at the board, before noticing he was the first one to enter. He sat upfront, rubbing his eyes. The first class in the morning was never too exciting, but the fact Professor Eaton used torches to lit it up helped much more. Regulus hated sunlight in the morning. As he sat back, he awaited for the others to join him in the classroom.

Morgan entered the classroom and wasn't really surprised to see that she was one of the first to arrive. When she spotted who was actually the first she clenched her jaw slightly and made her way to a seat opposite Regulus. She sat quietly and readied herself for class to start. She was excited to see what this new professor was like.

----

Vixen opened the door with a great yawn, her pack slung over her shoulder. She was not a morning person, and finding out that History of Magic was right off in the morning was not something she was thrilled about. But, history did interest her, so she gritted her teeth and went. She spotted only two other early-birds in the room other than herself and shrugged. Walking to take a seat, she spotted Regulus at the front. Covering a yawn, she asked him, "Hey, Reg. This seat taken?"

Regulus put on a devilish smirk as Morgan entered. He loved the way his brother and Remus actually thought she was in danger. Idiots. Clearly hot headed gryffindors. Not like the other snakes...and just as Regulus thought of that, Vixen appeared. "For you? No, it isn't taken!" He said with a smirk, pulling the chair back silently.

Vixen grinned back and gladly took the seat he pulled out for her. "Thanks," she said. "Never would have taken you for an early class man," she said as she set her bag on the table. She crossed her arms and, putting them on her pack, rested her head on them.

Jocelyn walked in with her history of magic books protectively in front of her chest. She walked up to the middle and took a seat, she placed her books on the table and looked around one time spotting Luna and many others but she didn't greeted them. Jocelyn sighed softly opening her books. This was going to be a long day without any nice lessons.

Luna walks as slow as possible to History of Magic due to it being boring as fuck. She enters the class in her normal SCHOOL uniform. She tweaked it a little to suit her style and loved it. Her tie was loose and her hair was in a high ponytail. She enters the class and walks to the very back of the class. She didn't sleep like every other night but looks like she had mountains of sleep as her eyes shone brightly. She leans back in the chair and crosses one leg over the other. Her robes exposed her ivory legs so she quickly covered them. She watches the torches dance and she smiles.

Regulus snorted slightly as Vixen spoke. "Never would have taken you for an early class woman either," he answered, letting his arms be crossed. He sat back in his chair, extending his legs under the desk. This professor Eaton was a new figure in the school along with Briana. Bruce had been there before, and Regulus had already had classes with him. But he was truly curious to see what Andrew had to teach them...

Kiara entered the History of Magic classroom, her book bad around her shoulder, History of magic, not her most looked forward to class as it was all bookwork usually. She yawned and found a seat, she glanced around and spotted Regulus again and talking to a Slytherin girl she hadn't met yet. Nothing interesting was going on yet.. so she took out a quill and readied her parchment with name and Date. Surly they take notes in this class right?

Cameron rushed through the throng of students in the corridor to get to class. He had lost track of time and was worried he was going to be late. The boy winced when his shoes squeaked to a halt just short of the door. Cam let a minute or so go by before peeking into the room: a couple of Housemates, a few Slytherins... basically everyone but a professor. 'Merlin, what a relief!' the boy thought as he walked into the classroom. Cameron chose a seat somewhere in the middle of the rows of desks and searched through his book bag for some spare parchment and a quill.

Andrew's first year teaching Hogwarts. Wow, amazing thought. After a long summer of hard work and preparation he can finally begin. Now it was a challenge to get students to like History of Magic and Andrew had to think of ways to get them interested. No problem. Andrew walked the hallways and loved the change in temperature from the hallway to the dark and torch-lit room Andrew picked out as his classroom. "G'morning class. Notebooks and pencils away no notes for this class." As he walked to the center of the room and behind his bare desk. He then put both hands on the table, still standing and continued: "My name is Andrew Eaton, former auror and student at this very school." He looked around the room to see who was paying attention and who wasn't.

"Now, I want to thank you for taking this class. You go and think: ughh History of Magic is so boring! But yeah, no that's not me. No notebooks, no notes, listen and understand. History is not about memorizing stupid goblin names and dates. It's about understanding what you are being taught." Andrew smirked as he continued to look around. Surely they've never had a history of magic professor who would admit to those goblin names being idiotic and pointless to know. "Before I continue," he sat down, "Any questions?" And placed both feet on top of the table to the side, so still be able to look at the class.

Regulus was somewhat stunned at the sight of Professor Eaton. Professor Sanguini was nothing like him. She taught the usual boring history of magic, but it didn't mean Regulus totally disliked it. But, he had to admit, this professor had got him interested. Reg rolled his eyes slightly as Andrew mentioned he had been an auror. Never say they killed people now do they, he thought, chuckling just a bit. When the sound of the professor's question passed by his ears, he motioned for him to continue, as he had gotten Regulus quite captivated already...

Kiara blinked in surprise at the information that they would need no notes or books and a part of her sighed in relief. Sometimes taking notes and things like that made actually thinking about the subject difficult. She was curious now how this new young professor could pull it off. And no she had no questions, not yet anyway. She looked at the professor waiting for him to continue.

Morgan's eyes widened at hearing that they wouldn't be needing to take notes in a History class. If Professor Eaton was trying to win them over by not having them memorize every little detail, he had done it with her! Morgan folded her hands and lay them on the table as she looked at Professor Eaton, ready to hear more from this new professor. She smiled to herself. Maybe she would actually enjoy this class for once.

----

Vixen raised her head as Professor Eaton began his introduction of the class. No notes? No endless list of minuscule facts to remember? Seriously? she thought to herself. Now this was a history class that she could enjoy coming to, even if it was early in the morning. Quietly, she set her pack on the floor beside the table and readied herself to hear more from this most interesting history professor.

Andrew looked around. No one, even a student waving for him to go on. "Okay so whenever you have a question you ask me. Do not raise your hand, I'm not that formal, just ask." The expression on their faces... "But yes, there are stupid questions so think before you talk." Yeah I got their attention. "Who can tell me who was the first wizard to breed a basilisk?" He asked but then continued, "And why? In history we evaluate events in history and their causes and effects and that's what we're doing... aaaaand I bored ya, didn't I?" He smirked. This is gonna be a great year.

Regulus narrowed his eyes, but couldn't help but let out a small chuckle. "When basilisks are in the conversation, I don't exactly get bored professor." He answered with a smirk, before opening his mouth to speak once more, "History of magic bores us when it brings boring subjects to the table," he explained, placing one of his feet on top of his leg under the table, before continuing to speak, "But speaking about Herpo the foul, and the reason he bred a basilisk, or several of them, is quite the way to start this off sir!" he finished with a grin on his face, relaxing in his own chair.

Eh good seems like Andrew was succeeding at not boring them out. "Correct! Yes. Okay. Now Herpo bred a basilisk just cuz he likes that kind of stuff. This was around 900 C.E. in Greece.. now because of this," And Andrew stood and moved as he talked, "He influenced... certain hatred among wizards and also encouraged the study of dark magic. We see this clearly in Salazar Slytherin. Legend says he created a secret Chamber due to his hatred of muggle-borns, influenced by Herpo. So now you see the effect that Herpo's crazy invention led to Salazar's actions and what is going in modern times what with this Voldemort." Andrew tended to use hand gestures and as he talked and pause to make sure they were getting all this.

Andrew sat back down and said: "This class is very oral. I'm not gonna make you right anything down but I will pose questions. Anyone: why do you think Hogwarts was created? And why so far away?"

Finally a history Professor who could as interesting questions.. She had her own idea why hogwarts was created and lifted her heads and voiced her thoughts. "Well.. I think Before hogwarts so long ago there was no.. Social norm to teach magic. Magic was taught through families before that, so witches and wizards born to non-magical families were untrained in the proper ways of magic. Getting themselves in or causing trouble. I also would guess the thought of a proper school even looked attractive to even the pureblood families.." She paused, she believed pureblood families back then may have had a right to feel they were better than others, since they were the only ones properly trained.

"As for why it was so far away, I would think they wanted to keep it secret from muggles.. or even other wizards who didn't approve of its existence.. To Protect it Sir" Kiara stopped her opinion done and she bit her lip hoping that was what the professor was looking for.

"Yup! You brought up a good point: Muggle-borns..... they couldn't understand exactly why accidental underage magic was going on so many people will treat him or her, the family, as a freak and a 'danger to the gods' and bad stuff will happen." Cause and effect again. Whole point of history.

"Salazar Slytherin influenced by Herpo made a basilisk and kept it in a secret Chamber known as the Chamber of Secrets." He paused. "It is no legend. It exists. But there's no one alive to control such beast," Or so he thinks. "or it would've probably died by now." Mhmm, keep thinking that Andrew. "That's it for Salazar, Godric! Tell me something about him." He asked the class, "and no stupid things. I know he founded Gryffindor house." Points involved.

"Godric Gryffindor came the moors, now called Godric's Hallow. He was said to prize courage, determination and strength in people over other qualities they might possess. Unlike, Salazar, Godric was one who was most favorable in allowing Muggle-born witches and wizards to attend Hogwarts," Morgan said. "He is also the reason we have the Sorting Hat to put us in our housed when we first arrive. It was his hat that the founders bewitched to continue sorting student according to their different favored qualities after they passed," she added. Morgan knew already that she was going to enjoy this history class. Lecture could prove uninteresting, but Professor Eaton had a little something different about his lectures that she could already tell were going to help her interest.

"Right good! 5 to Ravenclaw. Sorting hat, Sword of Gryffindor and a place named after him," To sum it up. "That's his legacy and his life-time rivalry with Salazar Slytherin that continues to this day, right?" Andrew juggled his mind seeing what else he can talk about.... "Let's see Hogwarts has a lot of enchantments to protect it and stop transportation.. list 'em?" Anyone...

Kiara bit her lip at the question and wondered if he meant the actual spells or not she supposed it didn't matter and voiced a spell she could guess might be protecting the school. "Protego Totalum Sir" she said tilting her head.

" And Repello Muggletum to keep muggles away?" She didn't know these for a fact but she was making a educated guess.
