A week? Not likely. My skull had better not crash to the floor when these confounded charms wear off.

Hmph. Well... if this is my last week as an entity, I suppose I ought to make it a good one.

*deadpan LOL* I don't suppose there's a way of reversing this, is there?

I'm sure I need not warn everyone that disruptions in class will not... be... tolerated.... so kindly keep the inevitable comments to yourselves.

Your assignment for the upcoming class will again be creating wards. This time, though, they will be etched in stone. Yes, you will be working with acid. No, you may not take any out of the classroom. Bring your dragonhide gloves; getting any on your hands will be a bad idea.


[[Thanks to Dwayne, Bob has a shiny, dazzling, flaring skull inside his ghostly head. Not exactly like the icon, but I couldn't resist. XDDD His normal features, pale and ghostly as they are, will be quite drowned out by TEH SHINY. Strike = unreadable. And come on, comment to say how your character does in class -- he wants to start doling out points!]]

Well, most of you seem to have caught up in basic translation. Depending on how today's group project goes, there may be a more practical assignment in your future.

There will be a passage written in front of the board when you arrive. Each student will take a different line of text, and then pair up with somebody who doesn't have the same line you do. Translate the line from Roman text into Futhark runes, and then pass it over to your partner, who will translate it back. Five points will go to the first five students to complete both sides of their work in class.


*stands back toward his classroom door; the air in front of the blackboard is overwritten with golden Latin words*

Ergo oceanus, maritimus.... )

And now.... *to himself, with a hint of a wicked smirk* ..all that remains is to wait.

[[Private to Marik]]

It was delightful catching up with you and Tabarus the other afternoon. As to the other matter, I greatly appreciate your assistance. Tomorrow should be... interesting.


[[Lyrics, if anyone is interested, are from Enya's Tempus Vernum. Those passing outside Dwayne's quarters before he emerges for his classes will be able to observe an extremely complex Celtic rune pattern attached by magic to the wood, just at head height. Dwayne-mun knows what it will do. XD]]

[[Private: 50% hackable out of boredom]]

A lunar eclipse tonight... pity that I will not be able to observe it. Still, I suppose that if I've seen seventy-eight such events, I've seen them all.

Of far more concern is the recent spate of accidental magic gone wrong. Does nobody teach hex-breaking anymore? What fools, O Lord, these mortals be....


[[Filtered to Harry]]

Has the, er, mystery been solved yet?

Now that the festivities are finally over, I will expect three feet from each of you on our current topic of study, along with an example of an active rune circle as a review of last term's work.

*angry muttering* Confound people walking in without looking where they're going! It's been twenty-four hours; where could the beast have gone? *grumbles* Back to the Forbidden Forest, I shouldn't doubt... wretched animal... I suppose I shouldn't have expected it to....

If anybody has seen a tattooed, hairless cat in the castle, kindly bring it back to the first-floor staff room. Thank you.

I hope you've all been working hard on the parameters of your hexagrammatic rune charts. It is time to discuss imbuing these runes -- and even runes you did not write yourself -- with charms and trigger spells to make them magically active.

As you've all had experience working together, our next class sessions will be performed jointly with Professor Robin's class. You will pick a partner from her class, exchange hexagrams, choose a that you have learned this year, imbue the hexagram with the charm, and incorporate a trigger spell that will set it off whenever you desire. For homework, do the same thing to one of your own hexagrams for practice.


..And five points to anybody who finds that cat!

[[Strike not hackable, but mood is obvious to anyone who sees him. Edit: there may be a log for the project, so stay tuned! :D As for Marco, I'm giving him another day or so loose in the castle. Enjoy his ear-splitting greetings!]]

*turning slowly in the middle of his classroom, which is littered with spattered ink and bits of quills, brushes, and parchment* Havoc. Complete and utter havoc. I should have asked someone to ward my classroom against those... things. Well, too late now. It's going to take days to sort all this out.

For anybody who did not receive the current assignment due to last week's... security issues, the project involves some of the abrasive inks which were fortunately left untouched. You will each select two pieces of slate from the stack by the wall, trace the letters of a common household spell on one of them in white graphite chalk, choose the correct ink from the table on Page 132 of Deciphering Ancient Runes, and then use a Number Three brush to practice etching letters and lines in your second piece of slate.

If this is your first experience with volatile materials, be sure to wear dragonhide gloves. The ink will burn if it touches your skin, but it can be flushed away with water. Allow the marks to stand for two minutes before wiping the residue away from your slate, and DO NOT write on your first slate until you are reasonably confident in using the ink. For homework, two inches on the type of ink you are using and why it is the right ink for the slate.

I would advise against any further nocturnal activity. If you really want a wild fruit bat, discuss the matter with your Care of Magical Creatures teacher or cast Point Me during the day, when you will have the added advantage of finding them asleep.


[[Late post... sorry, everyone! Essentially, a couple of Jakk's friends broke into Bob's classroom and made a mess of parchment and materials, causing him to dismiss several of his classes early. Feel free to have witnessed or heard of the debacle. XD As usual, brief notes on how your character managed the assignment are for the win! And Mell, can we say Izumi pranks Bob in some way before Halloween?]]
