[Guess who's cutting class? You guessed right.

Puck's had enough of stupid chickens (sorry, Professor Pie) and pointless classes like arithmancy. So he's just chilling out down a random hallway thinking up ways to get back at Professor Buckingham for that little stunt with the sparks. He hasn't come up with anything yet, but when he does, the professor won't know what hit him.

Anyone's welcome to stop by with a lecture (which he'll mostly ignore) or just to chat.]

[ "Apparition Lessons are a twelve-week program offered by the Ministry of Magic to Hogwarts sixth-years turning seventeen before August 31. These lessons are not part of the normal Hogwarts curriculum; they cost twelve Galleons. The apparation lessons take place in the Great Hall; the Apparition wards placed around Hogwarts are removed from the room for the duration of the lesson."

It's clearly Friday morning, contrary to what the OOC date is trying to sell you. Your Apparition instructor for the year is one Philip LaFresque, currently hurrying into the Great Hall well after his students, dressed in dignified ministry gear.

He addresses the class without breaking his stride.
]

My apologies for the delay, I was held back by a personal matter. Please put your essays on Splinching injuries on the desk in that corner if you haven't done so already. Today-

[ Finally halting and turning in front of the class he waves his wand in a circle above his head, making several hoops appear on the floor; one green and one red for each student. ]

-we will continue with short distance apparition, so take your places in the red hoops and try to get to green in one piece. Those of you interested in trying Side-Along Apparition first may come to the front of the class, otherwise please raise your hands if you have any further questions.

[ That lovely speech done Mister LaFresque will make his rounds with a clipboard, monitoring the students' progress and watching out for any potential injuries or missing eyebrows.

After class Philip will make a quick stop at the library. As an employee for the ministry he doesn't have an office at Hogwarts, but he does have a room in Hogsmeade for the duration of his classes, so students and professors alike may find him there during their weekend trip.

[Step right up, girls and boys, to the class that very well may be the best class in the entire school. Now, let’s not play coy. Everyone knows that the practical skills in this particular course can be applied to every aspect of your daily life. Who knows? You might meet a Hinkypunk on your next woodland hike!

Your illustrious professor - Winchester, Dean Winchester - and Head of Gryffindor House stands before you, twirling a long cypress wand between his fingers, chewing a piece of Droobles Best Blowing Gum.

What poise! you declare, what attitude!

But bloody Hell he’s so cool works just as well as he pops a bubble the size of your head.
]

All right, lissen up!

[With a lazy wave of his wand, his gum disappears and the classroom door shuts. Dean straightens.]

We got one heckuva day ahead of us, so let’s get started.

If you're taking Herbology, come on in; there's a large, unfinished wooden table in the center of it, set with enough chairs for everyone and ringed with rows of potted plants.]

[A word to the wise: Professor Morita will give you all the warnings you need, before you need them, but he'll only give them once. And if you're too stupid to listen...]

[Well, the only help he's going to give you will be healing whatever stupid thing you did to yourself. And quietly mocking you for the rest of your academic career, so you remember not to be a dumbass. Because he warned you, and it should've been enough.]

[Newcomers to the subject will find Professor La Fère standing stoically at the front of the classroom, wand (pine, phoenix feather, 10", and unsurprisingly unyielding for those of you who care) on the desk beside him. An owl lurks in the corner of the room, still slightly ruffled from Professor Buckingham's charms.]

As you are all undoubtedly aware by now, Arithmancy is most often used to predict the future, but it should not be mistaken for anything remotely similar to the study of Divination. We work with numbers, we do not gaze senselessly into the crystal ball, and unless you were born a skilled Seer there is no point in attempting to scry the results of your O.W.L.s.

[He was a student once. He knows how it is.]

You will be working from three books this semester: L. Wakefield's Numerology, M. Carneiro's Grammatica, and Vector's New Theory of Numerology. Reading is required, not suggested. You will complete seven essays and take three tests including your O.W.L., which is cumulative. We build from the ground up, and the first chapters of each book are just as relevant and important as the last. For the time being, wands away.

[Because Olivier is feeling especially generous today (or rather, he's a bit worn out from wrestling his owl away from another professor), all levels of Arithmancy, from beginners to advanced, get to have a little more fun than usual.]

You want fun? Numbers are fun. )

[ Good morning, darling seventh year students! Remember when Charms was a harmless subject with a lovable old professor and a slim to none chance of suffering emotional or physical trauma? No? Excellent.

Today each of you will find a candle sitting on the desk in front of them. Don't worry, unlike last time it will not grow teeth and attack you on sight. So sit down, get comfortable and listen to the task at hand!
]

Now, given the dreadful quality of your memory charms last week I trust that at least none of you will have any trouble recalling... the freezing charms you were taught in your third year. Today-

[ He snaps his fingers, lighting all the candles in the room at once. ]

-you will freeze the small flame in front of you.

[ He allows for a dramatic pause and for his students to wonder what place child's play like that has in a seventh year class. ]

Of course there... is a catch. Not only do I expect your actual incantation to be silent, no, I... should also like you to move your wand and lips as if you were conjuring fire. Allow me to demonstrate.

[ Professor Buckingham draws his wand (Dogwood, dragon heartstring, 15¾”, rather flexible, of course) and aims a flowing motion and a booming Incendio! at the candle on his desk, but instead of flames his wand produces a jet of ice that freezes flame, candle and holder solid.

Cue moment to let the display sink in.
]

To maintain the appearance of one charm while executing another is the very peak of focus, control and unity between you and... your wand, not to mention quite the edge in a duel.

[ It's also a rather underhanded technique and greatly frowned upon by Professor La Fère... which is all the more reason to teach it passionately and thoroughly!

Buckingham grins broadly and moves to the side of the classroom in strides.
]

That said, good luck and... do mind the eyebrows, eh?

[ For any ghosts, members of the faculty or students not presently suffering from his class Professor Buckingham will be in his office, grooming his owl. He will also be wandering the hallways often enough, especially to return a little something to a certain Ravenclaw's office. ]

Today we will be making the Wit-Sharpening Potion. Every fourth year learns how but as some of you seem reluctant to use it despite your intellectual shortcomings, we're going to go over it again.

Your ingredients are ground scarab beetle, cut up ginger root, and armadillo bile. Do not forget to grab a mortar and knife when you collect your cauldron. I expect perfect results from fifth, sixth and seventh years and you can depend on losing house points for anything less. First, second and third years may gain points for the correct concoction. Fourth years: shut up.

You should all do your best if only in this one instance. The Wit-Sharpening Potion will make you all the more tolerable to deal with and will certainly improve your time spent in this class.

[It's Divination time and the classroom - if an attic room, heavy with an eclectic mix of incense smoke (cinnamon bun, buttercream and vanilla) and filled with beanbags could really be called that - is a little noisier than usual. There's a clucking sound not often associated with schoolwork. It's coming from the chickens congregated around Professor Pie.]

Isn't it the meaniest mean thing that people cut up these sweeties for their entrails, just to see if their Quidditch team is going to catch one measly little shiny ball? I mean, it is really shiny. I can see why they want it. But the chickens want stuff too. Like to not be dead.

[She claps her hands together. Yes, she has a point and she's getting to it.]

So! Let's bring Divination into a new century of fantasticness by doing a little research experiment! Everyone's going to take a chicken and a diary. You've got to monitor your chicken - watch how it moves, how loud it is - and record what happens to you at all times. Every little thing could be a pirouette forward in the science of Divination! Next week, we'll gather all the records together and look for any correlation! Remember to keep your chicken with you at all times. I'll know if you don't and you'll lose...say, twenty-seven house points per minute not spent with the chicken.

[Athos is one of those men who drinks in more than just a recreational manner.

He drinks when he's unhappy, he drinks when he's feeling cheerful (but let's face it, how often is that?), he drinks when it's appropriate and, more often than not, when he doesn't need to. His tolerance is fairly strong, then, what with him being a large male in the "prime" of his life, having trained his body to deal with alcohol of all sorts, but the past two days have been a painful exception.

Good thing he knows how to drink to combat the searing headache.

You may encounter him in several places:

1) Slumped on a counter in the kitchen, flagon of fine Chambertin in one hand,

2) In his (rather trashed, sadly) rooms, sprawled across a bed, pillow over his head, or

3) Reclining leisurely on the veranda of the Mansion, because there's nothing like fresh air to complement some fine wine.

Surely, someone can disturb his solace. They say that misery loves company.

More than half a bottle of Fluffed Marshmallow Vodka later, he's claimed a tea room for himself, with his guitar. Maybe he'd been looking for the music room? Does he know there's a music room? Does he remember there's a music room? Whatever. He just needed a change of scenery, and he's pretty cozy sitting on one of the fancier couches.

And he is singing a song and it sounds a little like this one.

Clearly, I'm not in my house or even my high school. That would raise the question of why I'd be waking up anywhere in my high school, but I wouldn't put anything past Mr. Schue and his lessons of the week. Or what he'd call . . . "bonding."

[She purses her lips briefly, then runs a hand through her hair.]

So, if anyone has any information on where I am or alternative methods of bonding that don't involve waking up in strange places that I could suggest to an entirely over-enthusiastic Glee club supervisor, that would be appreciated. Thanks.

Uh, okay, so, could someone maybe tell me why the hell I was in my room like, forty seconds ago, and now I'm in Hyrule Castle? 'Cause I'm pretty sure that's the kind of thing a guy should know.

[tap tap tap.]

And it'd be super sweet if someone could tell me how this thing works, 'cause I've seriously tried it about twenty times now and I'm just hoping that by fifty I'll get to a point where someone actually responds, kind of like that Chuck E. Cheese deal where if you get five hundred tickets you get a BB gun or a huge stuffed animal or--um.

Whoever happens to be passing by might even catch him singing to himself. It's something he's good at, and he doesn't care who's listening. An audience is great, and he gets a huge rush from that, but sometimes, he just needs to play for himself.

I had a dream once with everyone from school and we were all here. Well, not here here but in Wonderland. Santana looked super hot in a top hat. She must have glued it on her hair because it never fell off, not even when we played crochet with the flamenco dancers.

Nobody ever died though. Just the JabbaWockeeZ. They didn't get to come back after final elimination. Only Sue was mad about it because she voted for them and not Status Quo and then she wanted my head but Santana wouldn’t let her take it so she put me at the bottom of the pyramid again as punishment, it really sucked.

But then Santana woke me up with her sweet lady kisses so everything was okay in the end. I bet this is just another taco dream and I'll wake up soon. Not with Santana though, it's a school night so she can't stay over.

[So Santana leaves her room, ready to go kill Kurt for the endless racket at his fancy-pants party, and trips over something. There's a huge freakin' book right at her door, taking up space. And sure, she totally recognizes it after a second, and okay, she may be looking through it and snickering at the entries she finds, things like--

John Egbert Cameron Poe is a bigger butt-boy than Kurt Hummel

George Lass is a zombie

Amaterasu is a flea-bitten lesbo wolf

Shannon Beiste will die a smelly virgin

Evelyn Carnahan is a fugly slut

Dean Winchester Indiana Jones is on the FBI's Most Wanted list

Aang is a hippy tree-fucker

Rapunzel needs to donate to Locks of Love

Philip LaFresque Dr Alan Grant is a (psycho) 40 year old virgin dino-lover

Kenny McCormick is a panty-stealing pervert

Athos sells alcohol to minors

Noah Puckerman is never getting out of Lima alive

And it goes on from there. Everyone Santana's met and hasn't met in Wonderland is in there at least once, usually with added illustrations and cut-out magazine pictures. There's a picture of George with green crayon scribbled all over her skin, and Philip (...or whoever he currently is) is drawn humping a dinosaur skeleton. It's all very classy.

There are even some that don't have more detailed descriptions and instead just have a full page of drawings--Santana spends an extra moment snickering over the picture of Buckingham, doodles of pink and purple hearts and dicks all around him proclaiming ~*~SUPER GAY~*~ and things. Again, we point out the class of this little project.

All in all, Santana's pretty impressed.

Until.

Until she turns a page and sees, scrawled in bright red marker:

Santana Lopez is a dyke

[He looks around him just to be sure that he hasn't wandered off to some random part of Lima. That has happened before, but nope. He's definitely back in the mansion.

And that pisses him off, because things were pretty chill back at McKinley. Okay, things were weird, but whatever, he was used to that. Puck turns back to glare at the camera.

He's since wandered away from the first floor, since he can't take advantage of it like this (a penguin in a little top hat and bow is just silly). However, it's really hard to climb stairs like this, so outside it is.

Ladies and gentlemen, there is a baby penguin wandering the grounds, making your day more adorable by existing. He is mostly likely to be in the safer parts of the chaos outside (so no warzones or deserts or forests), but mostly he's just being a bit of a grumpy penguin pants and eating his weight in grass because that will make everything better.

By the way, Mister Voyeuristic Building, sir? [Wait, what? That wasn't what he meant to say.] Don't you fucking dare take my hat again. If I want to sleep in it, wear it with suits and go swimming in it, it's none of your goddamn business!
