Written on the board in big, bold letters is Transfiguration. To the top left corner, written in a smaller size, is Professor Selwyn, for the benefit of forgetful students. Evangeline is leaning back into her desk, hair pulled back into a high, messy ponytail as she waits patiently for all her students to file in. It's not until they're all seated comfortably and she's made sure everyone is in attendance that she clears her throat and begins to speak, offering the same advice she's offered to all other years. "Welcome, students, to Transfiguration class," she pauses, smiling when she hears a very loud response. "This course is by no means an easy one where you'll be able to 'breeze right through'. The syllabus was specifically designed to be arduous and demanding in an effort to prepare you all to be the very best of your generation. I discourage you all from taking on the challenge of procrastinating until the very end, seeing as I will not be providing extra credit work at any given point in the academic year. Transfiguration is a very serious course and one that you all need extensive knowledge on in order to to become productive members of wizarding society. Study hard, and you will be rewarded. Fail to do so, and the consequences will be severe," she allows that to sink in for a moment, before smiling warmly. "Do not hesitate to approach my office after school. I'd be more than happy to help a student in need. Other than that... please do maximize this opportunity you all have at a marvelous education."

She stuck her hand up, not even bothering to wait to see if she was chosen before she spoke. "It's the ability to transform an object into something else," she stated, "and..." she trailed off. What made it more important? They were all important. "Well, it's very exact? Makes it harder than other branches to perfect?"

"Two points to Ravenclaw and four to Slytherin. Please wait until called on to answer my questions," Evangeline advices Cleo, voice firm but not unkind. "In essence, Transfiguration is the alteration of an object's molecular structure. While you guys aren't far off, you aren't wrong either: it is also a very concise branch of magic. One error and you will not successfully Transfigure anything," she nods. "But what sets it apart from the the other branches of magic? Why doesn't Transfiguration come as easily as Charms, or as Potions? What is Transfiguration based off of?"

Victoria thought briefly then tried to see if she had the right idea. "You can be a bit more creative with charms, wand movement has to be precise, almost...scientific, I think that is the term muggles would use for it. "

Although he wasn't overly sure, Dakota figured he'd give it a shot at guessing. "I think Transfiguration is different because it relies on a certain amount of concentration and your intensions need to be clear in order to get the proper result."

"Potions doesn't come easily." Yuki's voice is impossibly soft and in perfect tandem with his face. It's the first time he's spoken up. He leans on his elbows placed on his desk besides Edgar. "Transfiguration is the most technically difficult, but Potions requires different things." He hasn't the faintest clue why the professor brought that comparison up, so he squints at her unaccusingly. "Charms is about fooling around cleverly. Transfiguration is the magic version of math. Everything is in essence one plus one."

"While you were on the right track, Mr. Evans, Ms. Faye and Mr. Sugiyama hit in dead on. Two points to Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin," she smiles. "Transfiguration is scientific. Potions is like cooking - you need to be very precise, but at the end of the day it's not a very demanding class. Charms involves focus and determination. But Transfiguration - it binds together all the branches in a very scientific way. In order to properly transfigure an object, you need to be very formulaic and take into account a wide variety of factors. Transfiguration is the wizarding version of maths and sciences. Now, can any of you tell me what some of these factors are, off the top of your head?"

Victoria suggested another idea, she thought it would be pretty obvious, considering the difficulty of Transfiguration. "Concentration. Gotta stay focused. More likely to succeed if you put your mind to the task then do a half-arsed effort."

He has a hunch their headmistress didn't get an O in her Potions NEWT if that's her opinion on the subject. Eh, she isn't teaching it, and little good comes out of antagonizing adults openly. He would know. "Wand type," he offers. "Some wands are incapable of performing beyond a certain point. That's why a lot of people drop the class after fifth year. Too much effort is needed to progress if your wand doesn't like it."

He was wearing his beanie and he was holding himself back from trying to get away with playing his gamecube under the table. It was heavy in his pocket and he was fiddling with his sleeves to not let his hands begin to wander towards it. He knew the basic idea of the question but he kept his mouth shut.

She smiles reassuringly at Ximena when she sees the look on her face. "Transformation has two known branches: human transfiguration and switching. Human transformation, as you may all deduce, includes animagi, metamorphmagi, and werewolves. Switching, however, is the art of magically exchanging physical features between two targets, and it has one known sub-branch: cross-species switching," she pauses, eying her students critically. "I hope you're all taking notes," Turning towards the board, she writes down all four branches (Transformation, Untransfiguration, Vanishment, and Conjuration) with their sub-branches. "All types of magic has its limitations and its dangers. Can any of you name me one exception to Gamp's Law, and another of you elaborate on it?"

She feels the familiar churning in her gut that always pops up when she has to do spellwork in class. She hadn't managed to master either of these spells, but she'd had more success with Flintifors, so she decides to start with that one. She imagines a matchbox in place of the pencil holder, taps it with her wand, and says, "Flintifors."

He attempted the spells, following a generally accurate wand movement, but his Scottish accent makes the incantations....questionable. Flintifors becomes "Flentifors" and Draconifors comes out as "Draconefors!"
