Impressed with himself, Hogwarts' new flying professor stood gazing out over his handiwork with a massive, tilted grin, his fists on his hips in ultraconfidence. 

Marc Antony Endredgigon had arrived early in the morning, flew a quick couple laps on the pitch, and got to setting up for his first ever class just outside of the Quidditch arena. 

Facing a fresh cut field of grass - his back to his beloved Quidditch field - Professor Endredgigon had laid out 26 brand-new Yajirushi racing booms. To believe, when he'd cleaned out the school's storage lockers he'd found even a few old Starsweepers. Disgruntled, the ex-Quidditch pro had bought all in on the fancy Japanese broomsticks. Powerful as they were, he felt it was still less dangerous than making kids ride decades-old Comets and Starsweepers. 

The brooms were beautiful, spread out 13 a side, with enough space between each broom to let the students breath. Excitedly, he called for another broomstick just as the students started to file down toward his little patchwork class field. This one was...far lower quality than the sleek Yajirushis, without a discernible branding or even a fresh set of paint. For all intents and purposes, it looked to be a muggle broom. 

"WELCOME! Everybody to Flying 101! I'm your Professor, you can call me Marc-" his voice boomed out like the crack of a bludger against the beater's bat proper, the professor dipping down low in a steep bow, flourishing back up with a smile, "Now, being that it's the first class I want to see why you all can do with a broom, on or off. However, the class itself is Broomology Basics! So, to get us started, who can tell me how many charms are typically placed on a broomstick during the manufacturing process? Extra credit for those who can name a couple! "

Azalea had been listening carefully to the Professor.  Keen to follow each instruction and tip perfectly.  She was most anxious about this class, intimated by the thought of both speed and height.  She had thought of skipping the class, or saving it for another term; but she was conflicted.  'After all, what is a witch without a broom', she had told herself when signing up for classes.  Now, live on the first day, she only hoped she wouldn't make a fool of herself.

"Profes...Marc," she winced, surprised at how fast the instinct to call every adult by their teaching title.  "There is the Braking Charm.  To ensure that brooms are able to decelerate," she answered in a demure tone and manner.

Britney had been waiting all day for this lesson. She missed being able to fly on her broom whenever she wanted.  Listening, Britney could not help but feel energetic just from the energy the professor was giving off. She even ended smiling to herself. 

Britney looked around at the other students and noticed they seemed to have the same energy as well. "Uh, Marc I think I read something about a cushioning charm being placed on brooms." Britney said shyly. She still hated talking in classes, it always made her so insecure.
