It was, thankfully, the end of the year, which would soon mean that Elenore would be returning home to the bliss of her home country, and away from the uncivilised beings that were the English. Jacques had been selfish, and not allowed them to return to Versailles over Christmas, and Elenore was becoming increasingly home sick.

This was why the French witch had come out of the castle today, to get some fresh air and take her mind away from the aching in her stomach. Writing letters was simply not enough anymore, but Jacques would not - or could not - understand this. He was a robot - as Muggles would say - with no heart, and definitely no feelings.

Slipping in to Herbology, Elenore gave the professor a small smile, before finding a space so that she could see him well enough when he decided to start the lesson. She made no effort to speak to anyone, because Elenore did not use lessons for such menial things.

Venomous Tentacula, an interesting plant of choice. More so, a dangerous plant. Violet hadn't been keen on returning to Herbology after the last class she'd had with the (in her opinion) incompetent teacher. Perhaps he'd improved in his teaching methods- perhaps he'd stopped providing students with fuel to make him look like a fool. She supposed this lesson would tell.

She strolled into the classroom, to a much calmer classroom than it was last time. She walked over to the group, and for once, acknowledge the professor.

"Professor," she nodded, her face remaining expressionless. People, she noticed, got uneasy when others weren't easy to read. And that was her intention. She wasn't entirely sure if it would translate that way, but she didn't care much.

She dropped her bag to her side, standing with the other students, waiting for class to start.

Herbology was one of the more interesting subjects on offer at Hogwarts. Even more interesting was the plant they would studying, Venomous Tentacula. She'd done some reading on the plant beforehand, and was eager to see what the lesson entailed.

Upon arriving at the greenhouse, she saw quite a few students already there.

"Professor," she greeted with her natural, chirpy smile, before she moved to find Corbin in amongst the students, dropping her bag by her feet. She'd worn her hair down, but upon feeling the sticky heat of the greenhouse, she pulled her hair back into a messy bun "Herbology would be great if it didn't get so warm and gross," she murmured to Corbin. With hair as long and as curly as hers, it was simply for the best. Even if she had put product in, it would have felt gross against her neck "But, the plant makes up for the humidity, I suppose," she finished with a smile.

The first student to arrive was a young witch - a first year, if Caspar remembered correctly. He smiled back at the witch as she greeted him, almost responding before the question came. He understood the question completely, and gave the young witch a small smile that he hoped would be reassuring. "Morning Sophie - we will be cutting their arms off, but, think of it more as giving the plant a... hair cut? We're not hurting it, we're just trimming it down to a manageable size, yeah?" He tried to soothe. The destruction of plants was not something Caspar condoned, at all.

As the rest of the students entered, Caspar returned the hellos he got, but didn't further upon anyone else's greetings, instead waiting until the clock at the end of the greenhouse showed it was time for him to start the lesson.

"Umm... good morning everyone." Caspar spoke above the noise of the classroom, keeping his eyes averted from a certain Hufflepuff who always made him nervous. "So, for those of you who have completed the homework I set, you will know that we will be covering the Venemous Tentacula plant today. Now, who can remind the class the spell which has been given as the most effective one to be used on this plant?" Caspar asked, looking around hopefully for an answer from the class.

Herbology certainly held an appeal to the young wizard. Plants, all sorts, were fascinating. And magical plants even more so. So naturally, he was mentally kicking himself that he was running late to one of his favourite classes. Upon reaching the Greenhouse, he was relieved to find that he was catching the end of Professor Loverin's explanation on the day's lesson, Venomous Tentacula plants.

The warmth and humidity of the greenhouse didn't bother Anthony too much, although he found it sometimes got stifling on very hot days. It was great in winter though, when it got freezing on the outside.

When Professor Loverin posed the question, Anthony decided to answer "Diffindo, right? To cut off the vines?" He knew that these plants were dangerous, you wouldn't want to get anywhere near them, that was for sure. So it made sense that they'd defend themselves from it by simply cutting off the vines.

Herbology held quite a bit of appeal to the Ravenclaw Third Year purely because the teenager loved Potion's which meant that you had to know how different ingredients reacted with each other and to know that you had to have some knowledge of Herbology, no matter how much you actually disliked the subject.

The fact that they were dealing with a venomous plant that day certainly didn't deter the thirteen-year-ol but it did make her a bit weary of approaching it. She hated dealing with plants like that but it had to be done she knew though the moment her sixth year came she knew she would be dropping this subject. She had no desire to continue it after OWLs as it would just make her time table too cluttered considering that it was already filled.

Just as she was about to answer her fellow Ravenclaw, Anthony, one of the three Byrne children in school at the moment, answered. She stepped back at that and just stayed where she was, deciding that answering wasn't really her forte. She would just do the practical.

As Anthony piped up with the answer to his question, Caspar turned his attention to the boy and nodded along with the answer enthusiastically. "Very good, Anthony, hit the nail on the head with that one! Five points to Ravenclaw!" Caspar replied upon the boy finishing off the sentence.

"Yes, we're going to need to use Diffindo today to take the vines off the plant - which, for anyone worried is not going to hurt the plant, at all. Kind of like us cutting out toenails, so to speak." Caspar explained to those who were worried. "So, if you'd each like to pick out a plant, and give this a try, I would be grateful. Make sure to keep your distance from the plant, otherwise you will get hurt. And, no mutilating my plants past their vines, they're not easy to get hold of!"

Motioning them off, Caspar added belatedly. "Oh, and, if you'd like to, you can work in small groups!"

Upon hearing the instructions for the day's class, Oliver raised his eyebrow slightly. It didn't sound too difficult. Just a bit of gardening, really. With a plant that could kill you, in many different ways, if you got it wrong. Trying not to smile at the irony of that, Oliver turned to Serenity, raising an eyebrow at the witch.

"Do you reckon we can try that 'being friends' thing, and work together?" He asked the witch, only loud enough for her to hear before a smile touched his lips to show he was only playing with those words. "Are you good at the spell?" Oliver added, because he didn't want to be working with someone lousy at spells.

Though, of course, even if Serenity was crap at casting spells, he wouldn't walk off. He'd help her. Because he was a Hufflepuff, and Hufflepuffs were patient people.

"Oh," Sophie responded to Professor Loverin's words. "That's okay then, I suppose. As long as they're not hurt." With a smile, she thanked the professor, glad to hear that cutting off their arms wouldn't hurt the plants. She never liked it when anything - animal, human, or plant - was hurting. To hear that cutting off parts of the Venemous Tentacula wouldn't hurt them brought great comfort to her.

As the professor started the class and again reassured everyone that they wouldn't be hurting the plants, Sophie paid close attention. Herbology was her second favourite subject, behind Care of Magical Creatures. The plants of the Wizarding World were very fascinating and a lot different from what she'd been used to growing up on Grampa's farm. Never in a million years would she ever have thought that something like the Venemous Tentacula could exist. and yet here she was, about to cut parts of it off.

Not familiar with any of the other students - most of whom were older except for a Ravenclaw boy - Sophie decided to try it out by herself. If she couldn't handle it, then she would work with someone else. Anticipation making her heart beat faster, Sophie took her wand out and made her way to a plant, careful to keep her distance. She wasn't good at the spell yet, being only a first year, but what she lacked in skill, she more than made up for in determination. No one could fault her for being a quitter.

Pointing her wand at the plant and trying to aim for one of its vines, she practiced the wand a movement a few times first before casting the spell. Nothing happened. She tried, and again failed. Not in the least disheartened - for Grampa always said that one wasn't a true rider unless one had fallen from the horse at least ten times, and Sophie applied that philosophy to everything she did - she attempted it again, correcting what she thought was wrong. It took her three more tries before the spell worked and Sophie watched, slightly stunned, as a piece of vine fell. I did it! I did it! I did it!

As the realisation that she'd actually casted the spell and it worked dawned on her, a smile grew on her lips and she started again, aiming for the vine on the opposite end. It didn't work the first, second, or third time, but she managed it on the fourth. Slowly and steadily, she worked on the plant until she thought it was rather pretty with its new hair - or rather, vine - cut. "There," she said to the plant with a satisfied smile. "Now you're all neat and tidy again. I hope you like your new look."

As Prim looked at the plants, she grimaced and frowned. She hated doing anything like this with the plants as it just made her feel horrible but she knew it was needed so she picked out one of the plants that was a bit further away from the bustle of everyone else and eyed the tricky plant. There was just something about shooting a Diffindo at a plant that made her a bit weary but she sighed and shook her head as she pulled out her wand and pointed it at the vines of the plant.

"Diffindo." She incanted softly and directed her magic towards the vines, making sure to not hit the actual plant. She didn't want to injure the actual plant, she just wanted to take the vines off and she watched as her magic listened and did just that by slashing off the vines surrounding the plants.

Grinning softly, the teenager went ahead and cut off the rest of the vines before stepping back with a satisfied nod of her head.
