She though about practicing the spell outside on the castle grounds. Periculum was a spell that shot spraks high into the air so she needed a lot of space above her so she wouldn't burn anything down. But then she though if she did it where a bunch of people could see the spell, but not necessarily see her then they might think she actually needed help. She didn't want to cause a panick, that would be embarrassing. So instead she found the Defense Against the Dark Arts study room within the castle. She though about her dorm room or common room but since Slytherin was located in the basement, the ceilings were not very high. The study room was only on the first floor but the first floor, in her opinion, seemed to have the highest ceilings not coukding the entry or ground floor. Her DADA teacher was able to shoot Periculum in the classroom, and so the study room wasn't much different.
The spell made a but if noise when it blew up, but not too much that she would feel bad about practicing if inside. Hogwarts had to be used to strange noises like this. It was a magical learning castle anyway.
So she stood by a desk in the study room, her wand out and at the ready. Concentrating hard, she didn't want to mess it up, she though about the outcome she wanted. She had the incantation pronunciation down and the wand movement wasn't really movement at all it was just a point. So in reality it really wasn't a difficult spell looking at it, but it was magic after all and so there was more to it than that.
She thought her first attempt would at least produce some sort of spark or light since she got a slightly successfull cast in class the first day, but to her disappointment nothing happened. She tried again.
