She read it over - scribbling over the crossed out section a couple times - and then slipped it across the table, hoping that she wouldn't get ignored. When the girl looked up, she gave the same awkward lopsided smile, trying to put on her big eyes.Hi! I'm Kalani. I'm having a lot of trouble with my transfiguration work, and you look like you're good you know what you're doing! Could you help me out? We'd have to write it all, because I don't think the librarian would be too happy with us talking!!!!
with minimal thought she added a little emoji.Of course! How could I refuse such pretty eyes. ^o^
She highlighted each category in case that made it easier for Kalani. This was her first time tutoring somebody so she wanted to do a good job. So she worried that she has messed up some how and was tugging at her bottom lip with her teeth. Evelyn removed her hand from the paper to make it easier to view and balanced the pencil on her fingers while waiting to see if her method was received well.The four branches of Transfiguration are Transformation, Vanishment, Conjuring, and Untransfiguration. Some people count Switching as a category on it's own but our professor doesn't. So instead it's a sub category in Transformation. He had also talked about being an Animagus, which is a subcategory of Transformation as well.
Do you follow so far?
But what are they? Switching too, I don't get that.
She removed her hand from the paper after quickly getting rid of the eraser bits from the erasing she did throughout her writing. Hopefully this would clear things up.Transformation is something that alters the target in any way. Like mouse to matchbox or something to that same affect. Untransfiguration is undoing this process. So you would be turning the matchbox back into a mouse.
Switching is like Transformation, but instead of just altering the target it switches one physical property with another. So say you had two goblets. One was ornate and silver the other was small and gold. If you were switching the two the ornate one would become gold and the small one would become silver.
Vanishment and Conjuration are tomato tomato. Vanishment is getting rid off something, like a plant pot or something, and Conjuration is the harder counterpart to Vanishment. An example of Conjuring would be the summoning of a snake from the wand.
Did I miss anything?
Though she had said she understood the section on switching, she circled the word ornate. She drew another arrow leading off towards to margin, and wrote:Is it still transfiguration if you change a little bit of something? Like if you changed a mouse’s tail to be curly?
She’d never come across the word before; she wondered what the sign was for it.I get it, but what does ornate mean? Is it important?
She blew lightly on the page to dry the ink, then handed it back to the Hufflepuff.Is one of them more difficult than the other ones?
The last one she hesitated on. Well she had mentioned how Conjuring was considered harder than Vanishment she actually wasn't sure. It really just depended on the person she ended up concluding.I believe that would be Transformation, but i'm sure there's a line drawn somewhere between transfiguration and a charm.
As for Ornate it's not anything important to Transfiguration. It just means fancy. Like those hand made banners you see in the halls. Those would be Ornate.
She ended it with a little flourish and pushed it back to the raven haired girl.The difficultly of certain types of magic really depends on person I guess. I find DADA and Potions easy but trying to explain them is difficult. So if other people are better at certain kinds of Transfiguration that doesn't mean that it's easier than any other. Then again that's just my opinion~
She passed the paper back to Evelyn. As she did, she glanced at a clock on the library wall. Five to two; she'd promised one of her friends she'd meet her at two. She winced slightly, wondering if she'd be able to weave her way through the castle and out onto the flying pitch in five minutes. She took the paper back, and quickly wrote:I think I understand it all. Is there anything else I should know, though?
She passed the paper back again, then gathered up her things and brought them back to where she'd been sitting before, packing them up into her backpack. With the bag slung heavy on her shoulders, she looked back to the girl who'd helped her, beaming from ear to ear. She leant across the table to take the paper back, her bracelets sliding out from under her long robes and hitting by her outstretched hand.Sorry, I've got to go meet a friend. Could we do something like this again? Could I get your name to owl you?
