Swish and Flick.

His wand moved rhythmically while he mouthed the words necessary for the spell to work. His eyes concentrated fiercely on the long wooden wand, following its every movement, looking for the slightest flaw.

Swish and Flick.

He could do this; it was easy, spell work at its most basic form. It wasn't like he was learning advanced curses, just a simple disarming spell. Most third years could manage the spell, so it shouldn't be too hard for him.

Swish and Flick.

His movements were becoming more fluid and confident with days of practice. Obviously Harry's tutorage was doing wonders for his abilities. He knew it was only a matter of time before he mastered the spell, and he had the DA to thank for that. He shuddered to imagine what it would be like if he had to enter his OWLs with only Umbridge's teachings.

Swish and Flick.

Neville finally found himself ready to give the spell another try. Turning to the dummy in the middle of the empty Room of Requirement he focused his energy before giving his wand a quick swish and flick, the words smoothly flowing from his mouth after days of practice. The wand lit up lazily with the glow of his spell and fired at the dummy. He allowed himself a small ghost of a smile as the dummy's wand flopped out of its hand. He quickly began practicing the wand movement again.

Swish and Flick.

After all, practice did make perfect.
