You guys really know how to ask the hard questions, don't you?

Ok, I'll pick a class that I enjoyed going to both at the beginning of my Hoggies period and closer to the present. Mostly because of the intriguing situations that my students were put in during these classes. And that would be Politics of Magic. I especially remember one such class when Victoria Randall (now Jackson) was told to cast an Unforgivable and she flat out refused (in the way that she alone could do it - loudly and argumentative). Thanks, Max, for putting her in that situation. She needed it. <3

Defense Against the Dark Arts, once affectionately known as DADA and now called 'Magical Defense'.  It influenced Newton so much that he became an Arcanologist- a dark-arts object specialist.  It was fun, exciting, and really captured the spirit of the books.

I've loved every class Irma has taken thus far, but none have captured the vitality of Newt's DADA days.  Perhaps it was the newness of it- who knows?

I would love to see someone figure out how to make a magical Music class interesting.  Thus far, I haven't seen it.

Magical Defence, without a doubt. It's like our version of DADA, and although we don't have a werewolf teaching the class, we used to have a werewolf's sister. Classes were always interesting, and I remember this one term where Juni jinxed the thirteenth student to go inside the room. Loved that.

I tend to fall in love with COMC! The professors usually come up with some swell creatures to study, and it’s just fun fun.

Gonna have to second Charts here, and go with CoMC. It was the first class that caught my eye, and it was the one that Calypso fell in love with. Not much can beat raising magical birds from eggs.

I've always been really fond of Charms, but even more than that, I've loved Politics of Magic.

The reason being that it's always challenged my characters in their beliefs and it's been really good development for them. Like the time, they were told to cast an Unforgivable and Edward tried it. I learned so much about him because of it. And it's been the same with every character who has taken that class.

Charms has always been a must-have class for me. As for electives, I'd go for CoMC, I still remember when Thalia's class interacted with unicorns - that was magical. As for classes I'd like to see: Ancient Runes or Astronomy.

I really adore transfig! It's the funnest to me, and I adore thinking of different things to do and it really has a lot of leeway to try different things <3

This is always influenced by my characters' interests, but Politics of Magic stands out because of its importance to Eve and the ease with which I always wrote those posts - opinions are abound, which offers every character - even the shy ones - to be coaxed into saying something.

Politics of Magic was the first class I signed up for, Scott's favourite class, and mine as well. The number of ideas and thoughts that flowed around, and the interactions between students and teacher, was really wonderful stuff.

Charms has always appealed to me as a core class, and Muggle Studies surprised me by becoming my favorite elective. :) Originally Ra'as took Muggle Studies because he had to, and I fell in love with the class and how awesomely Gabby runs it~ <3

COMC is one of my absolute favorite classes. I enjoyed teaching it a lot, and I really enjoyed taking the class, they were always really interesting. I've also really adored Herbology, but I'm totally biased since I teach it hahaha.

I've always liked Transfiguration. There are endless possibilities of themes and spells that can be used in the class, and it's always hilarious to see a student leave with some unfortunate transfiguration to themselves that doesn't go away for a few days.

I usually like to stick with Charms and Divination. However, Art of Dueling was rather fascinating.

Divination and Transfiguration have always been fascinating to me - it's always fun to see what direction the profs take them in, so they're usually the 2 cores I sign up for (...when I'm not teaching one of them).

The one class that has always sparked my imagination has been Divination. Simply because I feel like it tends to be the magical weakness of most characters, which proves it to be quite an odd strong suit and something that is reserved for only a little club of privileged dorks. What I like even more about it is that it not that bound to strict regulations and incantations like the other three core subjects. It is a broad topic that can be discussed and explored in many various ways that I know not to be touched upon all that much for the time being. There is much more to it than meets the eye, and I love to have my characters try to explore the subject more and more.

I think I would like to see Politics of Magic around the boards. I feel like this is a subject that can't be missed in any curriculum, and that most students are now propelled into the adult world with all their knowledge of incantations and whatnot but have no idea how politics work and how it has an impact on them. There could be something intriguing about being prodded to think about it, something that would spark the imagination and character development of characters in ways that could not have been imagined before.

Another class I would like to see around the boards would be Wandlore. I think this is a highly underrated subject and there is much more to it than just the wood and the core. There is a lot of psychology to it and philosophy that makes it a subject I like to read up on, and maybe a light should be shed upon those aspects that have before never been highlighted all that much.

Charms and Divination have always been my faves—need no explanation, they just pure gratification, always makin' a magical sensation all up in my Olenka nation 'cause HELL YEAH CHARMS AND DIV. Honestly, I'm hard-pressed to recall lessons/profs from these two classes that I didn't care for.

(...gotta say Juniper's MD was always pretty boss, though.)

I really like Potions!

And I have to second Waldo's suggestion for Wandlore - that would be really cool.
