Welcome to flying lessons! This class is first years only; no older students are permitted. Reminder that first years are only allowed their own broomsticks under extremely special circumstances, so all the brooms used in this class will be from the school's supply.

"Welcome, first years, to your flying lessons! During the course of the year, you'll learn how to mount a broom, balance yourself, fly, and play quidditch. It's a fun class, but I won't force you to go beyond your limits - all I ask is you meet the minimum requirements, and you'll pass," she pauses. "It's not as safe as your core classes, all things considered, so please pay attention. If you do fall, walk it off."

Malia was currently in the middle of the pitch, hovering around five to ten feet off the ground as she waited for the students to begin filing in. There was an assortment of brooms lying on the ground, in a perfect line, one beside the other and across another set of brooms in the same format. First year Flying had been thoroughly neglected in the past, and she was adamant on changing that this year.

Tate made his way onto the pitch, seeing Malia floating above the pitch was both exciting and nerve inducing. Sure he'd been playing quidditch at home for awhile now, but now his flying techniques would be judged by a professor. What if he had been doing it wrong the whole time? Regardless, Tate was ready to find out as he neared closer to the flying instructor.

Hope had a terrible fear with heights. She hated it. Felt sick even at the idea of being even a meter off the ground. Which was why the flying lessons was already at her least favourite class. Hope honestly wouldn't have turned up today, would have preferred to be anywhere else in the world but here. But, there she was. Maybe because she realised nearly everyone would notice her absence. However, she did have one small trick up her sleeve in an attempt to get out of this activity that would most likely kill them all. Hope had forged her mother's signature and had a note to excuse her from it. Hope was very good at forging her mum's signature and you really only knew it was bogus if you had seen her mum's signature previously. Which there was a possibility that Malia had, in fact, seen considering they were neighbors and friends but Hope was willing to risk it. Stopping next to Tate, she realized one small issue. Malia was in the air, which left no possibility of Hope getting to her. Even looking up at Malia made Hope feel queasy. Hope actually looked like she wanted to cry, her hand gripping the note until it was slightly scrunched up. Hope was going to faint. That's how she was going to get out of this. Dramatically faint. She didn't even need to really faint, just convince people she had.

He walked out onto the pitch with Zlatko, swallowing hard as he was nervous to fly in front of everyone. He walked over and stood in front of a broom, taking in a deep breath.

Zlatko followed Lance onto the pitch, actually really excited for this class. If he liked racing, there was a good chance he'd love flying too. "You don't have to be so nervous." Zlatko nudged Lance with his elbow, an amused smile playing across his lips. "This'll be fun."

Val looked up at her mother curiously, a question having just occurred to her. "So do I have to call you 'Professor' or can I just stick to 'Mamá'?" she asked, tugging at the Hufflepuff trim on her robes with a bright smile on her lips.

Gideon was thrilled for this class. He's been on a broom enough before that he think he'd do pretty good, and he definitely wanted to try out for the quidditch team. There wasn't a single part of him that was nervous about any of it.

Eh, Megan wasn't much of a sports fan. Didn't think she'd be any good at quidditch either. Luckily, her fear wasn't as bad as her sister's, but more so a want to get this class over with.

Rowan had never really seen much point in flying, sure she'd done a couple of lessons with other children but she'd never really had much of an interest in it. Having a compulsory subject in it seemed a bit of a waste of time to her.

Once her students have arrived, Malia smiles and says, loudly enough that everyone hears: "Welcome to First Year Flying Lessons. I'm Professor Sakellarios. Truth be told, I'm not a very formal person, so Malia will work fine as well," she extends a smile, but the look she delivers Valeriya is blatant: not mama. "This class is among the riskiest Hogwarts has to offer, so I beg of you: listen closely to my instructions and follow them to the tiniest detail. If you get hit, walk it off. If you fall, walk it off. Nevertheless, I don't imagine you have much to worry about," Gesturing at the brooms, she adds. "Please walk up to the broom of your choice, lift your dominant hand over it, and say, as loudly as you can: up! Focus on what you want; envision the broom flying into your hands. Once you have successfully managed to summon your broom, please mount it, one leg over the other. The first five students to be successful get five points for their houses."


OOC: Feel free to GM for yourself how many tries it takes your characters! As a minimum, I'll be asking you all to have them fail at least once, but preferably somewhere between two and three times. Not everyone is successful on their first try, and that's ok. Learn to embrace it.

Standing far enough away with a fear of being hit with the broom, she stretches out her dominant hand. "Up," she says, quite quietly and somewhat hesitant. It's not surprising it doesn't fly up into her hand. Isn't surprising when it doesn't fly up the next two times either. Finally, letting her voice seem more firm and louder, she repeats, "Up!" It flies into her hand, a smile growing on her face in return.

Cool, cool. Standing next to a broom, he raises out his arm and yells, "Up". Nothing. "Up!" Again, nothing. "Up, up, up!" Goodness, this was harder than it looks. Taking a step closer to the broom, hoping that it will help, he takes a breath before calling out the word one more time. "Up!" Finally, it flies up... smacking Gideon right in the face. "Shit, my bad," he's quick to say before just picking up the broom. "Hey, I did it, though."

Okay, shouldn't be that hard... He holds his hand out, taking in a breath before saying "Up!" The broom did fly up, but not into his hand. It hit him between the legs in a very sensitive area, making him groan and fall onto his knees in pain.

Right before he was going to summon his broom he saw what happened to Adrien, clamming up and just standing there with his hand out-stretched over his broom. He opened his mouth but nothing came out, and he looked over at Zlatko like help!.

Malia gives Gideon an unimpressed look. "If it didn't fly into your hands, it doesn't count. Please try again until you perfect it, otherwise you'll be unsuccessful in your endeavors to control the broom up in the air," The sound of a broom making contact with another student quickly garners her attention, and Malia winces, immediately lowering the broom and hopping off. She hurries over to Adrien, extending a hand to help him stand again. "This is why you stand to the side, guys. The broom only goes straight up," she warns the rest, before eying Adrien with concern. "Are you alright, Mr. Bonnefort?" she asks, "Or do you need help getting to the Hospital Wing?"

She snickered briefly at Adrien's misfortune, before turning her attention to the broomstick. The first barely rolled on the ground before the second attempt worked. "Up!" The broom flew into her hand as she mounted it nimbly, hovering above the ground far enough that she could touch if she needed to.

All around her was people going 'up' with the intention of having their broom fly up and Hope didn't move. In fact, she was practically frozen stiff with absolute dread. She didn't want to do this. Which was only proven when she saw what happened with Adrien and grimaced. "Um...Malia," she began slowly, suddenly not sure if this was going to work, "I have a note. That excuses me from this. From my mum." She displayed the slightly scrunched up note.

She spots Elizabeth's movement out the corner of her eye and turns to look at her for a quick second. "Feet on the ground, Ms. Cledwyn. Wait for the others to mount their brooms," And, looking at Hope, she arches an eyebrow. Being good friends with her mum, and spending so much time watching Iliana try to get her to practice quidditch with her, she quickly put a and b together when she had the note in her hands. "I don't accept forgeries. Sorry, Hope."

“I-I’ll Ben fine Professor, I’ll just walk it off,” he said weakly as he stood up, taking in a breath before glancing at Beth. “You don’t have to laugh at me,” he said hurt, stepping to the side of his broom and saying “Up!” And the broom flew into his hand.

He winces at the sight of Adrien being knocked by the broom as well, knowing that hurt a lot more than Gideon's smack. He wants to make a retort on why Adrien is asked if he's alright while nothing for him, but he keeps his mouth shut. Dropping the broom back on the ground, he makes sure to keep his distance this time. "Up," he lets out, frustrated. So the broom wanted to squirm around again then, huh? "Up!" he yells one last time with a firmness to his voice, the broom finally popping up into his hand. "Yes!" he cheers, a grin now on his face. "I'm practically a natural."

Hanna, who uncharacteristic to her, hadn't said anything the whole time, was glaring at the broom as if it had done something to her. The prospect of flying on anything but a dragon or a hippogriff or some other winged creature seemed stupid. But fine, whatever. She stepped to the side and commanded the broom with a firm and confident, "Up!" It didn't move for a few seconds and then snapped upward to her hand. Good, if it hadn't, she probably would've snapped it in half. She glanced over at Gideon and snorted, "Natural, my ass."

At least she couldn't do any worse than Adrien had, surely? She stepped to the side of the broom, putting her hand directly over it she called out "Up" It didn't even shudder. "Up" She repeated, again nothing. "Up" She said again her voice firmer this time. The broom shuddered ever so slightly but still didn't move. "Up!" This one was spoken a lot harsher and the broom shot upwards, she only just had time to jerk to the side before it could hit her in the face. It fell back to the ground and she grumbled ever so slightly. This was not going well. Letting out a sigh she relaxed, putting her hand back over the broom she repeated in a firm but calm voice "Up" It flew up instantly to her hand.

She moved over to Adrien, wrapping her arm around her friend before whispering into his ear, in french at that. "I'm not laughing at you, Adri." Elizabeth murmured before moving away, back to her position, retaking her mounted position on the broom.

She didn't even look at it. She opened her mouth to argue before closing it. Hope knew there was no point in fighting Malia. Malia was right and Hope wasn't going to win. Guess she's just going to die. Fall from a broom and snap her neck. Come back as a ghost just to say 'hey, I think I walked it off'. She could just walk out. Might get a detention or two, but that's okay. Then just never turn up to any classes afterwards. It could work. Not like anyone could stop her. Huffing, she knew she'd never hear the end of it, she raised her hand. "Up," she recited. It wiggled slightly but didn't come up. Great, perfect. Now if it kept on doing that for the rest of the lesson. Hope actually felt like she could throw up and she wasn't even on the broom yet.

Val, having watched Gideon and feeling a little bad about trying herself because she'd spent a good while of the past four years in the sky — perhaps to distract herself from missing Lena, and to keep Iliana busy — was a little distracted upon her first "Up!" by worry for Gideon, Adrien, Rowan and for Hope, who looked pale as death. Once she figured that all of her friends were okay or were going to be, she tried a second time, sticking her hand back over the broom, "Up!" It flew up into her hand obediently and a feeling of warmth spread through the Hufflepuff; she mightn't be the best at other classes, but this? This she could do. She mounted the broom, keeping her feet on the ground despite the itch to soar into the sky.
