This is an artistic class in which for the first part I am asking you to visually show me what you imagine a bad animal transfiguration to look like. Think Ron trying to turn Scabbers into a water goblet with his broken wand.You can use any sort of program to create this...but please don't just do a google image search! I would like to see everyone's creative sides. Don't worry...artistic abilities will not be judged here. Try the best with what resources you have!

For the second part of the assignment, give me a description of the image...what animal was used...what you were trying to turn it into...and what you think went wrong. Please write atleast 300 words.

This assignment is worth 40 points. 10 points will go to the most creative. Have fun and feel free to ask any questions you may have!

Example of bad transfiguration:

Cedric Diggory attempting to become a badger!


Teehee...I guess my image is a bit self-explanatory, but I'll give a story to match it.

Cedric had been dating Cho for the past two weeks. Things had been really great ever since he escorted her to the Yule Ball. However, he always felt a little dumb around her. Cho was the brightest girl he knew - no wonder she was in Ravenclaw. Cedric kind of got the feeling she was starting to get bored of him, but he didn't feel confident talking about deep philosophical issues in the magic world. However, Cedric still wanted to impress his new and fantastic girlfriend. He then thought to himself, what would impress Cho?

He began to think through his years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft in Wizardry and attempting to think about which magic had impressed him the most. He remembered Professor Snape talking about the Draught of Living Death, but that certainly was not something he wanted to give his girlfriend. He then remembered some predictions Trelawney had made, but he knew Cho would realize any predictions he made would be complete rubbish. He could try to defend himself against something from the Forbidden Forest, but what would that accomplish? He'd have to go into the forest to get something, and he could hurt himself. Besides, nothing could live up to his defeat of a dragon.

What could he do? All of a sudden, he had a flashback of Professor McGonagall sitting in the front of the room as a cat. That's it! He would turn himself into an animal. And what better animal than a badger, his house emblem?

Cedric decided to practice before his date with Cho. He walked over to a secluded, wooded area of the grounds. Nervous, he decided to attempt this amazing feat of magic. He stuttered, held his wand up, and shouted..."Uh...badgerfy!"

Cedric's head began transforming into the head of a badger. Relieved, he started to look down and wait for the rest of his body to change. However, nothing happened. He still had his human hands and legs and torso. He only had a badger head! And worst of all, he wasn't changing back! He was still half-badger!

Cedric began to wince and fear that Cho may fully regret ever going out with him! He'd dump a half-badger boyfriend for sure! Completely ashamed of his silly attempt at magic too complicated for him, Cedric walked back up to the castle, avoiding areas with lots of people and quickly moving to the West Wing for the Infirmary.

I hope this is okay! If not, I'll delete the post and start over...if the animation is clogging anything up, let me know and I'll reduce the quality!

Spirit Week Gone Bad

It was the the second week of the new term and all I wanted to do was show off some house pride...by transfiguring the purple hippo into a raven. It actaually turns out that hippos are not easy to transfigure in the first place, as they are rather large. But at the time I thought I knew what I was doing, after all I had the basics of transfiguration down pat, nothing should have gone wrong.

I had practiced the wand movement for the transfiguration all morning, so by the time afternoon came, and time for daily feeding of the purple hippo, I was feeling pretty confident. A few of the Ravenclaws knew of my plan and the word had obviously spread throughout the school, because everyone was there. My stomach dropped, and suddenly I wasn't feeling so very confident about my transfiguring skills.

Despite my nerves I continued with my plan. I had made a big deal out of spirit week in my house, and I certainly couldn't back out now. Of course, had it just been my fellow Ravenclaws I might have backed down. But I could not chicken out in front of the other houses. Too much pride is sometime a very sad thing.

Brandishing my wand with an arrogance I no longer felt, I knew instantly that it would go wrong. My arm was too stiff, my voice too weak, the hippo too big. The purple hippo glared at me, and instantly I felt ashamed, because even the hippo knew what a failure I was. Then suddenly wings began to transform from the hippo's huge shoulders. But that was it. No giant purple raven as I had expected to get. Just a very angry hippo capable of fllight who was now probably going to fly out of it's pen and smack me down.

To my surprise everyone began to clap. Full fledged cheering erupted. They thought I had done it on purpose! I smiled weakly, relieved that my dumb luck had once again saved the day. I turned down everyone's questions, and walked swiftly away. None of my classmates might know that I had just messed up, but there was one really mad and winged hippo that might still eat me if I couldn't change it back.

Around midnight I crept out of my dorm and slipped out of the castle. I had my wand, my transfiguration book and a huge box of twinkies to bribe the hippo with. To my surprise the hippo was returned to natural form! I quickly fed the hippo the twinkies, trying to bribe my way back into its good graces. The sound of a throat clearing startled me and I spun around.

There in front of me was my Transfiguration professor, with a stern, yet amused expression on her face. Without prompt, I quickly told her everything, thanking her profusely for transfiguring the hippo back. She cut me off, explaining that while I had been suscessful in a partial transfiguration it had not lasted long. The wings that had miraculously sprouted had been gone within the hour. I was reminded that transfiguration is not something a student fools around with, and that next time the damage of an unsucessful transfiguration could be far worse and permanent.

Eight boxes of twinkies later the purple hippo finally stopped glaring at me so much and my Transfiguration detention is almost done. Ravenclaw spirit week was still a big success, despite my huge foul up. I think next month I'll just stick to wearing some buttons and making some banners.

Part 1
This is my Rat Pong:


And this is him after trying to transfigure him in to a mini elephant:


Part 2

"What a day!" Natalie huffed as she eased herself in to the corner on the sofa in the Ravenclaw common room one Tuesday evening. "Poor Pong, didn't know what was going on and I don't think he enjoyed it either" she said looking at the small bundle of white fluff now sleeping peacefully on her lap. He had had a big day, being used as Natalie's transfiguration experiment in the library.
"He'll be alright, he's a tough little ratty this one" Charlie sat down next to her and gave Pong a stroke. "Anyway, having a tiny elephant as a pet would be well cool" he smiled excitedly.
"Charlie, don't, you'll hurt his feelings" Steph croaked out of nowhere, her voice horse from reciting the same spell on her owl all day. She had just joined them placing herself on the floor next to the sofa. She picked Pong up off of Natalie's lap and gave him a cuddle. "I'd have this little cutie over an elephant any day" she smiled as she brought Pong up to her face and tried to shake his nose at his.
"Squeak!" Pong let out a huge squeak as he scrambled for freedom out of Steph's hands.
"Haha...seems like he wouldn't choose you!" Charlie laughed.
"Stop it Charlie" Natalie snapped, she took Pong back from Steph and put him on her lap "He's just tired, that's all. I'll put him back in his cage and try again tomorrow." she said walking over to the girls dormitories. "I'll see you guys in the morning" she nodded and walked through the door.

The next afternoon, the library wasn't as packed as it usually was in the holidays. Natalie took a spot near a window with Steph and begun her work.
"Okay Pong" she said as she plopped him on the work table in front of her. He looked up at her obviously unaware of what was to come. "Time to try again. I promise I'll only do it a few times" she promised as she stroked his head.
"Animaga Elephanty" She poked her wand at him instantly and hoped that this time it would at least work, she watched in anticipation.
"Yes!" she exclaimed as she saw Pong's little pink ears turn grey and start to grow. His nose the started to droop as it grew in to a small trunk. Natalie was jubilant with hope as she watched.

"Well?" she said to herself, confused as it seemed the transformation had stopped. Pong hooted at her with his little trunk, obviously in annoyance. "Just a minute" she piped, as she rushed furiously through her Transfiguration textbook. Pong started to walk off towards the book shelf at the other end of the table.

"Oi! I'm not done with you yet." Natalie said looking up from her book, she reached over and grabbed him before he got into the gaze of Steph's owl, Snowdrop. "Finite Incantatem!" she waved her wand over Pong's head and he was brought back to his normal form. He shook his head and eagerly took the little bit of apple Natalie held out for him. It looked like Natalie would have to think of another spell for her project as this one seemed to be not working.
