THREAD OF THE MONTH: SPRING FEVER
What is the title of the thread? Does it hold any significance to the plot of the thread?
The title is "Spring Fever!". It's definitely significant, because it's basically an indication of the class is, but not in the way the subtitle, which calls it Class One: Shield Charm, does. ....Really, I just like puns, and I could not resist this one, because it was perfect for the chaos that Moreena was going to unleash. "Spring Fever" is basically the general theme of all the spells she casts that the class needs to defend against.
Where did the inspiration for this class come from?
I love doing "themed" classes that depend on the season, so I kept thinking of something to do with spring... and the phrase "spring fever" came to mind, which... somehow led to this. Haha. Also, Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream, which is courtesy of our very own Tine, (I never got to do the donkey ears though).
The mechanics came to me as a sort of successor to the Golem thread I did before (for those of you not here for that chaos, that was when Moreena controlled a stone golem that attacked students and which the students had to attack in turn until it was destroyed). Once again, Moreena is the attacker... But this time, the students can't attack at all, only defend.
Oh, the random effects are also something of a successor to the April Fool's class I did once, which was an "escape the room" scenario where touching random enchanted objects had the possibility of weird effects or turning into the key they needed to escape.
....This was probably a far more involved answer than you wanted to read, sorry!
Who is in this thread?
What are some of the best quotes from this thread?
This paragraph of justification on why @Martín Marzán needed to take his shirt off, obviously.
@Emil Madeline showing his lovely Slytherin side as well as his abs, yes.
@Florentin Deschamps taking a break from being his usual grouchy self
Do you have any favourite plot lines in this thread?
As my favorite quotes probably show, when all the boys just started stripping their shirts off after getting hit with the heat spell
Did this event head in the direction intended, or was there a twist along the way?
....Erm, yes, so, some of it did go how I predicted, but it also grew a life of it's own pretty quickly. I loved the interaction between the different characters that really showcased just how different the individual reactions are.
Also, full disclosure, the final spell is supposed to be a "fall in love with the first person you see" spell.... but the thread kind of died
