Course Teacher Opinion at the start Opinion at the end Grade
Formal Enchantment Prof. Trillisanguinus Spreen (Rassimel woman) I presume I shall be thoroughly humiliated in this course too. Perhaps I should ask Glikkonen for some secrets which I could at least smirk about knowing ... perhaps Llezcaryg's Disaster. In any case this course is entirely theoretical, so it should not require any cley. Esory Not as bad as I feared. Prof. Spreen got bored with teasing me after two weeks, and, I believe, some of the other students wrote her anonymous letters explaining how tedious it was to have so many spurious mentions of Glikkonen. Generally Suitable
Notable Magical Catastrophes Prof. Ili (Herethroy woman) I had hoped that this course would be easy to the point of barely existing at all, but my hope is in vain, for the senior students wince at the very name of it. Prof. Ili does not simply tell entertaining stories (though she does that). The emphasis of the class is how not to be involved in a notable magical catastrophe onesself. One may expect to be interrogated by boiling weekly. I, too, shall wince at the very name of this course. Not that the out-of-class work was very hard, but Prof. Ili did, indeed, take great joy in setting up subtly doomful scenarios and explaining how, no matter what we did, we were doomed. By the end of the semester I had died eight times, been transmuted into an arhoolie plant, a puffball, and a Herethroy both-female, had my left forepaw permanantly affixed to the inside of a cupboard, and had my left eye taken as a prize by a smargathaniel. This is relatively good, considering that most students in the class died between ten and sixteen times. Iska, for one, did better. She only died four times. Curse it. Well-reasoned!
Applied Enchantment Prof. Nethry Alzagond (Rassimel woman) I expected this to be practical and straightforward. It was practical and straightforward. And terrifying. I shared a table with Rhedwy, who (1) could eat me; (2) drops more than her share of things, due to having no hands, which is not safe in an Enchantment class; and (3) invited me to a sex party without telling me it was going to be a sex party. Honorably Worked. (Which, for monsters, is a fairly good grade. But everyone in the class got Honorably Worked.)
Corpador Prof. Oolsp (Orren man) The continuation of last term's course, which even ~mother~ found little to complain about. I was exactly and perfectly and slootly right about it being a continuation of last term's course. Diligently Labored. Somewhat disappointing, since last term I got Finely Reasoned, but not too bad and not undeserved. I skipped this class more often than was perhaps wise.
A Discussion upon Monsters Prof. Syylista Syyllia This should be an easy course. It had better be an easy course, for no other course this term is easy. (In the Green Tile Classroom, Sprowlween Hall.) I know much more about monsters now... which leads to a useful question to ask to the monsters. Pleasantly Stated.
