He walked into the room, dressed casually (too casually one might think), and placed some papers onto his desk. He didn't think he'd be here but here he was. "Alright, so I'm Professor Kingsley," he said, glancing around the room, "you're history of Magic teacher for years five to seven. Seeing as you're fifth years, you will be doing your OWLs, something that's rather important. Now first off, wars and revolutions. Anyone tell me any examples of this?"
- "Yes, I'm alone, but I'm alone and free - so stay away, and you'll be safe from me."

She had just studied up on this with Andrew a couple nights back. Biting her lower lip in concentration, she tried to recall a couple of facts. After hearing Castor's answer, she decided to pipe in. "There was the Global Wizarding War with Grindelwald." She added, not about to let the Black be the only one to answer. It'd go straight to his head.
"Morning, class," he announced as he walked in, "welcome back to History of Magic. I...uh...hope you enjoyed your summer but for now, we're going to head straight into it. Now, near humans. Can anyone tell me examples and why is it important to discuss them, especially in this day and age?"
Xavi, opting to sit in the middle of the room was leaning back in his chair, mulling over the question in his head. "An example of a vampire is Lady Carmilla Sanguina, who was born in 1561, and thought blood would retain her health and beauty, so she bathed in the blood of her victims," he said after a few seconds of thinking. "In the modern day we live in, we should be able to co-exist with vampires, and it helps to know about them so we don't misunderstand them, their origins and/or their struggles."
She scoffs, "Doesn't mean shit, though." She says in response to Xavi. "About 10 years ago, vampire and high ranking ministry worker Jade Knight got sent to Azkaban for feeding on a child after having been starved. She's still there today." She recounts, "But that's the issue, isn't it. Ideally the world would be great and everyone's for integration but as soon as some shit goes down our first response is to incarcerate them." She scoffs, and continues doodling in her pad. Why was she taking this subject at NEWT?
He looked over his shoulder, unimpressed. "It's in our nature to be judgemental. We've taken to thinking we're always right about something, to be untrusting. While you're right, intergration will never be simple. We both need to make efforts."

He frowned. "But shouldn't some precautionary measures be taken? I don't know about this Knight person, but... if she fed on a kid... I mean that's... serious, right? I'm all for equal rights and no hate, but... people have a right to be safe-- to keep their kids safe, don't they?"
He sat behind his desk as he watched the students file in. When they all sat in their seat of choice, he began to speak. "Professor Kingsley, and I'll be your teacher for this class for the year. I won't waste any time of this class for anything tedious so lets get straight to it. Today, we'll be focussing on examples of important wizards and witches. Can people give me on example of one and why they're important?"
- "I came. I saw. I turned right back around and walked the f*** out."

Okay, but when did being gorgeous become a requirement to teach at this school? First the Potions professor and now the History professor too? It was unfair to the students trying to concentrate. Upon hearing the question, Hephaestus immediately knew which witch to bring up. "Narcissa Malfoy. She was a powerful pure-blood that was instrumental in the defeat of Voldemort. She protected the fact that Harry Potter was alive, leading up to the final battle. Without her, things would've been different." Festus explained, proudly speaking about the distant relative.
