"Welcome to Defense Against the Dark Arts, students. I am Professor Alyss Mitchell-Anderson, but you can call me either Professor Alyss or Professor Mitchell. This year, I hope you all are ready to dive right into the studies on how to defend yourself from the dark arts. If you have any questions or need extra help, I can be found either in My office or here. And with that said, let's dive right in, shall we?"
DO NOT EDIT THE ARCHIVE. Instead keep roleplaying on the current page.
Alyss would be found standing with her back to the class, writing on the blackboard before turning to face the other students with a smile. "Welcome to Defense Against the Dark Arts, first years. Now, before we go into spellwork, let's figure out exactly what corresponds as Dark or Light or in some cases, Grey spells. Anyone have any ideas?

"Wait," she cuts in suddenly, with her eyebrows knitting in clear confusion as she stares ahead at Alyss. "We're jumping right into spellwork? You aren't going to give us some deep, allegedly meaningful bullshit of an explanation as to the why behind the class?"
She raised an eyebrow, fixing an eye on Charlotte. "That is correct, Miss Lovell-Montcroix. No why behind the class or meaningful bullshit as you put it, only straight into spellwork. Now, Light, Dark, and Grey spells. Anyone have any idea of their differences or examples of spells that fit into each category?"

She sits back, visibly impressed. She puts on a half-smile as she quips, "Dark spells are those that were created with the intent to harm. Light spells are the ones made with the intent to aid others. Grey ones, as you put it, are those that were made for one reason, like to fit the light category, but fit just as well in the dark one, or vice versa."
She would be perched on the desk, legs crossed as she waited for the class to file in. "Welcome back, second years. Now this year, the focus will be on dueling and magical creatures, so to launch us off, can anyone name the proper order of dueling protocols for formal duels?"
Alyss would be standing in front of a trunk with the desks and chairs off to either side of the classroom. "Welcome back, third years. We're going to dive right in this year, with starting our study of boggarts. Headmaster Chevalier has gladly let me borrow this fellow in the trunk here, so let's get started. Name the spell that defeats a boggart. If you can describe what actually defeats a boggart, you get five extra points."
Alyss smiled at the entering fourth years. "Welcome back students. One more year until those OWLs, and don't worry, they aren't as bad as they make them out to be." Alyss winked, smiling before she continued. "Anyways, this year we're going to be mainly exploring other magical creatures that you haven't covered yet, and spell-chaining plus more dueling. But as a review, can anyone name off a creature that you remember from your years of study?"

The class would be hard-pressed to find a creature she didn't know about, so she kept quiet... but she did wonder what spell-chaining was.
