"Welcome to Defense Against The Dark Arts, where you will learn things in the hope of never having to use them. My name is Professor Eldridge, and I hope that, since we will be spending the rest of the year in this class, we can learn to understand each other. Please never hesitate to raise questions or topics of debate, and if you have any questions outside of class times you can find me in my office."

"I hate to start with such a terrible, overused question," she begins, "but it's unfortunately rather necessary. I promise that next lesson will involve more 'exciting' things. That said - what do you think Defense Against The Dark Arts is, and why is it important?"

Xavier nodded at his classmates' answers, pretending to be enthusiastic in these introductory crap. All magic, to him, was neutral in nature - it's only the way people who used it that made it bad. And he himself intended to master every aspect of it.

"Defence" against "dark magic", duh, she thought, but decided there's enough sass in the class. She said instead, 'Important because we need it to protect ourselves from magical attacks?'

Classic Liam, sitting in the back of the classroom, writing fan fiction and his observations done, but mostly fan fiction. Who else would ever be able to finish the series up when the holiday finally showed it's face? Him of course, so he deemed that more important then the need to actually talk or participate in this class.

"None of you are wrong, it is rather 'on the tin'," she says, referencing Bai's words, "but the question rather more referred to is not the words mentioned in the subject name, but what the subject consists of. What kind of magic would you be expecting to learn?" She'd turn to Liam next, having noted his...inattentiveness. "While it's encouraging of you to be considering a future career this early, Mister Montclair," she says, "I'm afraid you won't be able to continue it if you run into a foe and you've spent the entirety of Defense Against The Dark Arts classes not paying attention." Anna's question was fair enough. "Dark magic is hard to define - it's argued what qualifies as Dark Magic and what doesn't, dependent on your intent while using it. But no, not demons; dark magic comes from a wand like defense magic, and everyday magic you will use in your life."

"Dark magic, ma-manyoopackchurt by nightmer factories, hollor movies?" This time, she does her best to speak what she's writing. She really wishes Blake is there to correct her. A spellcheck plus pronunciation check plus overall grammar check would be swell right about now.

She really wouldn't be saying anything normally, but she recites for the sake of the girl who just did. Zo respects the fact she's trying so hard to speak English and it's obvious she's nervous about it. Luckily, she's sitting near Bai, so she smiles a little before raising her hand and whispers "Manufactured by nightmare factories; something like horror movies, yes. Good job." she encourages, gently. She raisee her hand after, not wanting to be called out for talking in class and not contributing to the discussion. "With dark arts there's always a victim."

'Is there a difference between evil and dark?' This floated up in her mind and out from her mouth before realizing it herself. Honestly she hadn't known much about dark magic, except for one thing. 'Aurors in the Ministry catch dark magic users,' she suggested.

"But then aren't we questioning the morality of using dark magic completely? Isn't there a school of thought that argues that dark magic has a negative correlation with one's soul?" He says, remembering something he read in his home library. "So, lets say for every time you use dark magic, it chips away at your soul. Surely, using it, even as a means to protect yourself, would have a negative impact on you, if not even at the slightest? Which means that, on an ethical scale, we shouldn't be using it because it's not only harmful to others, but harmful to ourselves, too." He says, having had enough of being silent.

"The world isn't so black and white. Voldemort knew he was doing the wrong thing, using magic to increase his owl life span at the costs of others, but then there's people who think they're using dark magic for a good reason. The unforgivable curses are different. In order to properly use those spells you have to feel a certain way. You have to feel like you want to kill the person, or control, or... torture. That's why they're unforgivable. No sane person uses spells they have to feel like they want to injure someone for good. But other spells... defense or not, if one thinks they are using it for good purposes, who's to say they're dark?"

Ryann sat, pulling her tie down, for it had been hanging out of her sweater, she watched the other students answer, and the teacher ask questions. She stayed quiet, not wanting to be bombarded with answers at a question. Do these kids know anything about this subject besides the Dark Lord and curses? She thought, rolling her eyes. She opened her mouth: "No matter if it was you-know-you or not, Unforgivable Curses are just that; unforgivable. Using any could wind you up in Azakban. Who cares if they're dark or evil? They aren't defense, or something to laugh over.. It's just.. okay, put it like this: I have a poisonous snake in my hand, and I let it slowly climb your leg, biting you every time it moves. It's torturing, like these spells, and it's not defense.. or funny."

She looked a wild-eyed at the whole conversation. Yes, she knew that there were people who made mistakes and hurt people but she believed that it was because they were misled. The soul thing made the most sense to her. "Back to the thought on souls, if I may bring it back there... personally that makes the most sense to me, because I'm also in the camp that all people are inherently good. With the thought that the use of dark magic taints the user's soul in mind, both can be combined because if someone were to use these spells say by accident, they may wind up continuing down the wrong path because the pull of the dark magic is too strong and their soul has become tainted," she says in a very pretty French accent

"Welcome to Defense Against The Dark Arts, second years. Personally I find no benefit in the kind of 'reviews' most teachers start the year with, so we'll be diving head-first into the second year material as such. That having been said, we'll be starting with the most basic tool in a defense - Expelliarmus. Can anyone tell me what this spell does and why it may be useful when defending yourself from an opponent?"

It had been fortunate to find a Boggart this early in the year. "Does anyone have any idea what we might be encountering today?"

"I would much prefer that an attempt was made, but if you find it overwhelming and wish to back out at any point, of course you may do so." She's heard that in previous years students have fainted, and truthfully, she'd rather avoid that.
