PostSubject: Potions: Lesson One (All Years)   Sun Apr 30, 2017 8:40 am

The summer had been very restless for James. With his daughter having been born, and him not not having the excuse of being at school to aid him, he'd learned first hand what being a father was all about. Getting up at silly o'clock in the morning to calm the small child until she slept once more, changing nappies full of baby poop to the point of almost throwing up from the smell, dealing with his clothes being splattered with baby sick. James had dealt with it all.

Though, he hadn't dealt with it quietly.

Getting away from that, if only briefly, had therefore been a welcome break for James as he made his way back to the sanctuary that was the Potions Room in the dungeons. Setting up his room, James took a seat at his desk, reading through the latest edition of the Potions magazine for which he'd subscribed. In there, with his newly created potion he'd made over the summer for the school's treasure hunt, was James' name. A new creation. Patented. And making him more money than you'd believe.

The board was devoid of any information on what they'd be doing today, but James' notes on the Wiggenweld Potion lay before him, ready to teach the class this potion.

Cade had dreaded his first week of school, having been filled with classes he had no use for. The boy had known that he could not run away from the school. But the boy knew that he had to somewhat get his act together, as he had decided to make his way to class. Knowing he had the class that he was not exactly fond of. And had been basically a menace at the subject. The boy thought of the idea of skipping.

But he knew that he was too close to the class to actually skip it, and the professor had kind of scared him, partially contributing to why he disliked the class. Cade had ran his hand through his hair as he was walking through the dungeons to Potions. Wondering, if maybe this year would be any different, but then again life was only what he made it. Something his parents had constantly reminded of growing up.

He had felt himself getting closer to the class, beginning to wonder if it would too late to skip the class. Cade then just rolled his eyes, seeing the opening coming closer in his view. As he entered the classroom to see Professor Balan sitting at his desk, reading a Potion magazine, that he sighed when he saw.

The boy had looked on the board and sighed, as he made his way to the closest desk. Hoping the professor would simply act like he was not there, taking a seat as he felt like just laying his head the desk and fall asleep, then participate in the class he was bad at.

Summer was over. Regrettably so. There had been some complications in him returning back home so he'd lost two weeks of his holiday. He more than made up for it though, reconnecting with his friends once he got back and spending almost everyday out with them. How he missed his community and old school! He'd even gone to visit his school just for the nostalgia of it and met up with each of his teachers. The only hard part was answering their many questions. Of course, he had to lie about it, but he kept it simple, just saying that he was in a private school. None of them could understand why he'd gone to a Hearing school and not stayed with his community. To that, he just shrugged and gave some made up half-hearted answers and changed the topic quickly.

Besides hanging out with all his old friends, the best part of summer was that hadn't used his voice. At all. In school, he'd been using more and more of his voice just so people could understand him and he didn't have to go through the hassle of miming and scribbling down on pieces of paper - which he couldn't do fast enough to keep up with a group conversation for their projects. At least he had Amber now. That was a definite blessing. And Max. Though his friend couldn't not sign, it still felt good to know that he could call someone other than Amber his friend.

Entering the classroom, Elleon took up his usual seat at the front. Nothing on the board gave him a clue as to what they were doing today and Elleon hoped that the professor wouldn't make this a habit. He'd graduated that year, but he was still a year behind and could not afford any mishaps. He glanced at the professor and saw him absorbed in his magazine. He'd heard - more like lipread - through the grapvine that Professor Balan had a kid. Elleon just could not picture him being a father. He pretty sure the man hated kids and Elleon didn't knowwhy he chose to have one of his own when he could not be friendly to the class. But it was none of his business. Instead, he took out his sketchbook as always and began another doodle.

Lainee had been making her way to Potions, the girl had thought of the subject, as being okay not like it would be her first pick of a class to take. Mainly, because the professor did not seem to be at all fond of the kids. The girl even wondered if the man could even handle his own kids, and with that the girl looked and wondered. She had began walking down to the dungeons, and had wondered if maybe the man could have lightened up over the summer.

She had then hoped maybe she could find one of her friends, there so she would not have to pay attention to the professor. Then again Lainee knew she was not going to get good grades if that was how she operated things. She needed to have a job in the future, and not be like her older brother Daxton who could care less about school, only with bashing Quidditch balls at others, and seeing what he could accomplish.

The Ravenclaw, had soon arrived at the classroom, entering it. Finding the professor to be sitting in a chair reading a Potion magazine. She had rolled her eyes as she entered, finding herself a seat in the middle which she took a seat. As she began to get all her belongings out, and with that she wondered if maybe she would see one of her siblings.

Even though she knew that if not, the girl had been fine with that. As she began writing in her notes as she waited for the class to start, and they could begin brewing Potions.

Delilah wasn't really very excited about potions class right now. She hasn't been very good in this class lately but she still seems to show up here. She just wants to pass her years without no problems really. She tried to attend to so many classes as she can.

She walked into the classroom with a small smile on her face. She was happy for some reasons she wasn't even herself sure yet. She had basically made a friend over summer but then again they haven't met here in Hogwarts really yet. She greeted the professor and looked around the classroom.

She noticed there the boy named Cade, who seemed to sleep there already even if the lesson hasn't even started yet. She remembered that boy didn't really like to attend lessons. She walked over his table and sat down next to him basically.

"Hey," she said and was poking even him so she could get his attention there now. Maybe she can make him stay up for this lesson.

OOC: Basically it's okay to that Del disturbs Cade there. Katie Une allowed it.

Zoey was looking forward to her potions lesson for the day, she enjoyed potions. She liked the concept of creating something from nothing, being able to slip something in someones drink and determine their fate. It all fascinated her. She smiled at her professor as she walked into the classroom "Good morning, Professor Balan." She said as she looked for a seat. She found one and walked over to it, sitting down next to a Hufflepuff boy. She did her normal class routine of setting up all her utensils before she turned to the boy beside her and smiled. "Hello. Im Zoey, Zoey Kingsley." She knew the boy, he was only a year ahead of her. But she was trying to remember his name. SHe knew it was something unique. It started with an E, but she couldn't remember it for the life of her. Oh well, she was pretty sure he would introduce himself, as she had done so to him.

Potions. Her favorite lesson by far. The Summer was over and the only reason Elyah was glad to be back for was Potions. The subject was amazing, she was good at it, and that meant that she was kinda close to impressing Professor Balan with her abilities. Sort of. So once she saw that her next lesson would be Potions, Elyah practically run to the Dungeons, wanting to be one of the first students there, just to find the perfect seat.

Sadly for her, there were a couple of people there already, but things were still under control. Finding her usual seat towards the front, Elyah took out her notebook, ready to keep notes. Max hadn't arrived yet, but the Huflepuff was sure he would be walking in at any minute so she kept the seat next to her available. She knew that he would probably sit with Prim, but she had nothing to lose. Instead of think about that though, Elyah turned back to the Professor and gave him a small nod. Then she waited quietly for the lesson to start.

Potions have never been really Brayden's best subject for sure. He always seems to mess thing up her but still, he decided to attend to this lesson. There is always the way that lessons go better than last year or so. He isn't really someone who gives up because things are hard. He will still try to keep doing it.

He walked in the classroom. "Hello, professor," he said with a small smile. This time he decided to sit down somewhere his own. He knew Lainee was even in this class since he had noticed it but he didn't really wanna spend every minute with her. He tried to keep his distance at the moment at times. He still tried to understand somethings there.

He wasn't sure what to expect this lesson. He took needed supplies for this class out and began to wait for the lesson to start now. He just hoped he won't mess potion up today.

Potions Roxanne liked. The Potion's Professor she couldn't stand, not really. The man was a great Potion's master, there was no denying that, but when it came to teaching them the Potions, he left a lot to be desired; thankfully Roxy wasn't one of those people who had no idea what they were supposed to be doing so she just bore with it like any respectable pureblood should, with a blank mask and only the barest of interactions with her Professor.

Making her way into the classroom, Roxanne took in the students scattered around the different seats before she made her way towards the middle of the room where she sat in one of the many chairs, pulling out her Potions' book and equipment before relaxing in her seat and waiting for instructions that day.
Whatever Potion they were doing she hoped it would be a fun lesson to have at least.

Oliver quite liked potions, it was a subject that he was more than a little bit good at. Therefore, it was an obvious choice that he was going to attend the lesson today. Hurrying across the dungeons from the Hufflepuff Common Room to the Potions classroom was one of the few tolerable commutes to classes that Oliver had.

As he walked, he wondered if Serenity would be attending the class today. He hadn't managed to catch her thus far, and he was wondering if, perhaps, she was ignoring him. No, he corrected himself, it was just that they had yet to cross paths. With time, they would, and they would be able to hang out.

Stepping through the classroom door, the boy offered a smile to Professor Balan before finding a free seat and sitting down. A glance at the board didn't tell him what they were studying, so perhaps Professor Balan had changed his teaching style - not that that would hurt!

Zoey turned her head to the other side of her when a boy from Hufflepuff sat in a near by empty seat. She looked at the chair he had sat down in then slowly raised her eyes to meet his face "Hello." She said in a soft tone.

To say she didnt know what to say was an understatement. Zoey was not used to people initiating contact, not that he had done that simply by sitting down. But now Zoey felt obligated to do so, and she had absolutely no idea why she felt that way.

She bit her lip gently before muttering a simple word towards the boy "Hello." Now that she had done that, she felt a bit more comfortable "Im Zoey." She said taking a bit of a chance at actual communication with the Hufflepuff boy. She wasnt sure what to say or do after that. She wished Rebekah were there, she was always so good at talking to people

To say that Ambroise excelled in potions class was an understatement, as any fool had the ability to follow directions on a page without screwing up. Any mistake that one made during a class such as this was a mistake created by nothing except for human error. Potion making held the potioneer accountable for every inch of their body that moved during the process. There was no room for carelessness. Ambroise appreciated the straightforwardness of this class.

He walked into the room to see that students had already begun to fill the seats. The first thing that he noticed was the fact that the board was void of any indication as to what the lesson for that day would be. It added to the mystery of the lesson, he figured. But it was still odd.

Ambroise took a seat in the back of the classroom, crossing his arms over his torso as he waited for the lesson to begin.

Rebekah sure as hell did not want to attend morning classes, they were so early and did not give her enough time to properly wake up. But she had no choice. So, she made her way from the Great hall to the dungeons for her potions lesson.

She walked into the potions class room and raised an eyebrow as there was no lesson plan on the board. She did not know what to do with the lack of information so she looked around for some kind of clue as to what they might be learning, but failed to find one.

She sighed rather loudly and dropped down into one of the seats in the middle of the classroom and waited for the lesson to begin so they could learn what they would be talking about. She crossed her arms on top of the desk and rested her head down on them since she felt so tired

Potions were something that Cassiopeia could tolerate even if she wasn't really that good in here. She could follow instruction for making potions easily but there was still always the chance that she could mess things up. She didn't care much about her grades really. She never really has. But this year she know she needs to pass her NEWT's with good grades.

She walked into the classroom and looked around there. "Oh, hello," she realised she should say it too. She walked towards the first empty seat. She didn't really care that much about where she did sit. She just wanted this class to be over soon. She looked up the board. She saw there nothing so she raised her eyebrow. That was new.

She wasn't sure what they will learn today so that made her sigh. She looked around the classroom, so she could see who were in this class today. She just was bored at the moment.

Potions were everywhere you turn even in different forms that weren't recognized. Gaspard thought that besides the healing and poisoning factor, wizards still didn't know how much Potions could actually do. They'd only begun to realize the possibilities that lie within them. Such as Polyjuice Potion and Veritaserum. The twelve year old desperatley wished to be part of those that learn how to create something new and have it be used for a practical purpose like the Wolfsbane Potion. That was one of the reasons that Gaspard wished to learn the craft of Potion making.

The boy hadn't wanted to miss his first ever lesson, so he'd left early but apparently it hadn't been early enough. While ideally he'd wanted a seat closer to the front, perhaps it would prove beneficial if he sat in the back. That way he wouldn't make an easier target? Having claimed a seat, he'd gotten his things out and set them just so. Taking out his potions book, he propped it up using his knees and the edge of the desk.

The class filled up, but James ignored all of his students. As always. He had no time for idle chit chat, or slackers. His classroom was for learning, and learning would be insisted upon. Anyone who didn't like it was more than welcome to leave.

Which was why it probably hadn't been a wise idea for Mr Sawyer to attend today's lesson. Levitating a particularly heavy book across the room, James dropped it just next to Cade's head, making a loud bang instill throughout the room. That, should, hopefully, get everyone's attention, the Potions Master had decided.

"Five points from Huffelpuff for disrespectful behaviour, Mr Sawyer, if you can't come to my lesson and pay attention, don't bother coming next time." James told the boy, making it quite clear to the whole room that he wasn't going to stand for such nonsense.

James, however, was not done there, and turned his attention to the Ravenclaw witch who had introduced herself to more than one person in the room. "And, Miss Kingsley, my classroom is not a place to try to find your future husband. Five points from Ravenclaw for being so pushy towards the male students in the room." James added, before focusing.

"Now we've got the childish antics finished with, we can make a start on today's lesson." James announced, features stern because he did not want or need any other interruptions in this lesson. "Today we will be looking at the Wiggenweld Potion. Who knows what this potion is? What does it do? Where is it useful? What ingredients will we need to make it?" James asked, looking around them all for answers.

Zoey jumped in shock at the sound of a dropping book and noticed that their professor was ready to start the lesson. Finally, she could get some learning done. but soon, her joy turned to embarrassment and shock as Professor James took points from her for no reason. Well, he had given her a reason, but it was a stupid reason. Zoey was a friendly person. She could not help that. She sighed and rested her head on her desk for a moment before slowly raising it back up.

When Professor James announced they would be learning about the Wiggenweld potion she smiled softly. SHe knew about this potion. She raised her hand and decided to answer one of the questions he had asked them.

"The Wiggenweld potion is a healing potion with the power to awaken a person from a magically induced sleep. Which also gives it the ability to reverse the effects of the Draught of Living Death." She said hoping to gain back the points she had lost due to talking to people.

The loud bang caused Gaspard to jump in his seat nearly causing him to drop his book. Only by having quickly clamped his legs together did he stop his book from tumbling to the floor. Having retrieved his book as the professor deducted points, the boy nearly glared at his fellow Ravenclaw when points were taken from them as well. Biting the inside of his lip, he kept his eyes on the professor as he placed his book on the desk in front of him. He really shouldn't be upset at the girl for losing points since to be fair a lot of people lost their houses points and then earned them right back. And it seemed that the girl had that idea in mind because her hand went up before Gaspard's could and answered part of the question.

While inwardly he wanted to sulk at not being the first person to answer the question, the boy blinked as he listened to the answer. It was a different one than he would have given and while he might have heard of this potion, he'd never brewed it or seen it in use. Well, he'd read in a book his father had restored about the real story of Sleeping Beauty and that she'd been awaken by the potion their professor was asking them about today. And while he had no idea what ingredients were in there, he could hazard a guess where it would be useful.

Raising his own hand he stated, "It would be useful at hospitals and schools."

As Elleon waited for the class to begin, he began to doodle. Though he was focused on his work and making each stroke of his pen precise, he unconsciously kept an eye out on his surroundings. Being Deaf heightened his other senses, and he'd learned - the hard way - to always be aware of what was happening around him, which was why he he'd spotted a girl heading his way before she even sat down. As she drew nearer, he began hoping that she would choose another seat. His hopes were dashed when she sat next to him.

It was where Amber normally sat.

And Elleon didn't like that at all.

True, Amber hadn't yet come to class, and she may not even come at all, but Elleon wasn't used to sitting beside anyone else. Even before Amber transferred here, he'd sat alone in all his classes. Most people tended to avoid him. He kept his eyes on his work, moving his pen across the paper though he'd lost the inspiration to draw. Out of the corner of his eyes, he saw her arranging her things on the table. Perhaps she would be a quiet girl and wouldn't strike up conversation at all. Again, his heart sank when he saw her turning to him.

He lifted his eyes from his unfinished sketch, his gaze locking on her lips as his brain began the familiar process of guess-the-word-and-fill-in-the-blanks. He could tell that she was introducing herself to him, but all he caught of the name was an o-sound followed by a ee-sound. What could it be? Chloe? Joey? Zoe? Unsure and not wanting to get her name wrong, he merely smiled at her before flipping the page to a clean one and writing I'm Elleon, showing it to her once he was finished. He'd wanted to add that she should move because she was sitting in Amber's usual seat, but he didn't. They could sort that out later if Amber came.

Not long after that, the professor started the class by levitating a book. Elleon's gaze followed it to where it landed near a boy with what he presumed was a loud sound, judging by the way Chloe/Joey/Zoe jumped beside him. It didn't bother him. The loud sound, not the throwing of the book. His eyes flew back to the professor, just in time to see that he'd deducted points from both his house and Ravenclaw. What? But, but that isn't fair. Sure, Cade might have been disrespectful, but Professor Balan could have easily made him brew an extra potion or write an essay or some other individual punishment instead of deducting points from the whole house.

But apparently, Professor Balan hadn't yet exhausted his bad mood and proceeded to deduct points from Ravenclaw as well. What, is it deducting points class today? He didn't have time to stew over it because Professor Balan went on with the lesson, a potion that began with 'w' and had 'w' somewhere in the middle. Before he could figure it out, Chloe/Joey/Zoe raised her hand and answered the question. And of course, since she was sitting right beside him, there was no way he could read her lips. He scanned the classroom, spotting another student who raised his hand to answer. No luck there either. He was too far away to read.

He was almost going to raise his hand when something in his brain clicked. Wiggenweld. That's it! How could he have been so slow with that? Guessing that neither of the two people who answered talked about the ingredients - since from his experience, most of them answered 'what it was' and 'what it was for' - he decided to tackle that question.

Neatly, he wrote out on a clean piece of parchment:


Lionfish spine, salamander blood, honeywater, and flobberworm mucus are some of the ingredients.


He raised his hand and held the sheet up, hoping he'd written the words big enough that Professor Balan could read it easily, and that he wouldn't be condemned for writing it out instead of answering verbally.

When Zoey answered the question set, only a few moments after he'd deducted points from her, James knew that she was trying to win back the points. However, her word for word (i.e. copied, without thinking) answer, did little to impress him. "Yes, that's true." James growled to the witch, not awarding any points to her for the efforts.

Another Ravenclaw spoke up soon after, and James nodded at the answer given. Obvious, but correct. "Schools and hospitals are amongst the more obvious places. Many people hold a stock of the potion at home, as well, especially when they have young children. Three points to Ravenclaw." James added, knowing that one first hand now he had a daughter to contend with.

As Elleon caught his attention, James squinted slightly to see what had been written, before nodding his understanding of the answer. "Yes, that's right too." James added, turning towards the board and drawing up the ingredients Elleon had given so that the rest of the students could see. "Elleon has supplied us with a few of the ingredients, there are more, but these are some of the more well known ones. Three points for Hufflepuff." James explained after he'd turned back to the class as a whole.

James turned back and added the remaining ingredients to the list.

"When you take your exams, you will need to know the full list to gain full credit. The more you know, the better. Commit the ingredients to memory." James insisted, before motioning them to the back of the room. "Please prepare me a Wiggenweld Potion in the remaining time, and hand it in for marking. If you need help, ask." James told them, before sending them off to complete the assignment.



OOC: Just so people know, I do not give points for simply opening Wikipedia and hitting copy and paste for answers. Whilst I appreciate you need to look things up, please put them in to your own words.

Elleon breathed a sigh of relief as Professor Balan accepted his answer. Although each of the houses only received three points when the usual was five points, Elleon didn't really mind. He was just happy that the professor had accepted what he'd written. Sort of. He knew all the ingredients needed to make the Wiggenweld potion, but he also knew that the instructions in his textbook didn't use a majority of the ingredients listed - like the Horklump juice, Chizpurfle fangs, sloth brain mucus, and myriad of other stuff. He'd therefore only written down the ones that the textbook said to use.

Making a mental note to ask the professor about it later, Elleon began on his potion. He started with the salamander blood, adding it until the potion turned red. He stopped immeditately, stirring the potion instead and keeping at it until it turned orange. Then he switched to the salamander blood again, pouring it in until the orange lightened to yellow before going back to stirring.

Once the potion turned from yellow to green, he picked up the salamander blood and added it, stopping when the potion turned turquoise. He put down the salamader blood and left the potion to heat, keeping a careful eye on it. The moment it turned indigo, he began pouring the salamander blood again, waiting for it to turn pink. He was careful not to add too much at a time, a mistake he'd once made.

The potion turned pink and Elleon halted adding the salamander blood, heating the potion until it turned back to its original red. He then put in five lionfish spines, heating the potion until it turned yellow. He added another five lionfish spines followed by flobberworm mucus, watching as the potion turned purple.

He picked up the ladle and stirred the liquid, adding flobberworm mucus after it turned red. He kept up with the mucus until the red turned to orange. The went back to stirring the potion, patiently waiting until it turned yellow. THe next part was the one that threw him off. It said to 'shake'. How was he supposed to do that? The cauldron was a heavy thing and rather bulky. Even if he could lift it, he doubted he would be able to shake it. Perhaps he had to take it out into a phial before shaking it? But he had to shake and adde the floberworm mucus at the same time. How'd that work?

Raising his hand, he waited until Professor Balan noticed him. He wrote out on a piece of paper: How do I shake the potion?

After receiving help, he thanked the professor and continued with the next step, adding the honeywater until it turned turquoise. Next, he heated the potion until it turned pink. Finally, he put in the salamander blood until the liquid turned green.

Done with the potion, he ladled some out into a container, wrote his name, year, and house on it before handing it up. He thanked the professor again and left the classroom.
