It's a University, there's room for more specialized courses, Defense Against the Dark Arts is quite broad.

Could be possible.

My guy is probably working on his thesis or some other big project for his degree, and he's going to do that by developing this course.

Well, like all Potter-verse schools, this one doesn't offer any degrees.  :)  Even if the other did/do, since it's not Ministry approved, Nacodsaed wouldn't.

It's fine with me for him to be working under GF's character.  I want to lead students on lots of dangerous field trips.  :P

Field trips could be a bit of a problem . . . that whole hidden island, hidden school, concealed from Muggles and Ministry of Magic alike thing . . .

of course there is the issue of Vivianne's back ground as a 'body guard' and eventually living what you have your character wanting to teach. She also has a extreme sport personality, so the more danger her life has been in... the happier she is. I'm not stingy with the subject. perhaps we can work something out.

might i ask if it's still open to join? i've always toyed with this idea of an American wizard coming across the pond (we can't assume only Europe has witches and wizards, can we?). Please let me know if I can join, thanks.

I'm thinking my character served actively in the military after graduating Hogwarts (fighting evil terrorist wizards, of course), so he has a fair amount of experience, not to mention he's just naturally 'good' at it and has worked long and hard honing those skills.  This would make him about 26 right now.

As for field trips, can't wizards Teleport or use other means of magical travel?

That's possible, although I'd like to minimize the number of non-European students.  We do know that there are canonically wizards around the world (see Goblet), but even so, the schools tend to be rather secretive.

See PM.  A couple additional things, since this has more info: 1) What military?  There are no militaries in the wizarding world.  2) At 26, he couldn't be a student.  He'd have to be a full blown instructor/teacher.

A note on the canonical stuff . . . GF's ex-bodyguard, I can see from extrapolation even if there are none shown in the series because 1) the Ministry provides guards to top members of the government and 2) I could easily see say a member of the Weird Sisters or Gwenog Jones, for example, hiring some protection from time to time.  Organized military forces on the other hand are completely out of whack with the setting, the closest we get are an hoc groups put together on the spur of the moment for specific threats (ex. Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore's Army) that are unofficial and disband after the threat's gone.

Yes, apparition/disapparition is around, as are broomsticks.  However, as noted, apparition doesn't work on or to the island (as per Hogwarts and other major sites like Gringotts/Diagon Alley).  The school's not on the Floo Network, because the Ministry monitors it (Phoenix, Half-Blood, Hallows).  Portkeys aren't an option because the Ministry traces and monitors them (see Goblet).  And even brooms can be followed.

kind if a explanation of 'body guard', while that could include protection of certain officials/famous wizards it can also include accompanying wizards on expeditions that might require aggressive defensive and offensive spells that they might not be good at. I guess you can think of her as an auroror (sp) without her actively pursuing that field. She doesn't actively chase down people who breaks magical law unless requested but if a wizard was to go rouge and threaten another, she could set up the threatened wizard's defense.

i've only read the books once. while i love the concept I find for the most part they are a boring read so i am at times going to screw up on the terminology or confuse/mix actual magical mythology (that i have studied) with potterverse magical mythology. I ask a bit of forgiveness during those times.

Thanks, I was going to do that this weekend.

We can especially use teachers and upperclass(wo-)men.

I'd love to join. I've got an idea for a student, and possibly a teacher. I'll send them off for approval when I'm not about to head off to actual classes...

We've had some people leave, so there are numerous positions for teacher and student characters.  Everything except Ancient Runes is open for teachers, and we're heavy on the lower end of students (1st year).
