 Herbology: Lesson Three (All Years)

Go down 

PostSubject: Herbology: Lesson Three (All Years)   Sat Jul 01, 2017 11:46 am

Caspar had decided on much more of a practical lesson this time, with the use of a wand and hopefully something for the students to enjoy, he was hoping the participation would be much higher than it had been in previous lessons during the year. Though, in truth, the professor blamed himself more than anything when it came to the lack of participation.

Turning to the board in the greenhouse, Caspar wrote up the topic of the day, Herbivicus Charm. Whilst, technically, it was a Charm, and probably better suited to a Charms professor teaching them, this charm was very useful when growing plants.

They would, however, only be practicing the spell on non-magical plants, because he did not need gigantic Venomous Tentacula's attacking the class. Turning back to the room as a whole, Caspar stood patiently waiting for his students to arrive to class.

Deciding against going the easy route this time, Wesley made his way down to the Herbology greenhouses on his own. His first year at Hogwarts had been... quite something. From a Masquerade Ball in the first week of school, to being pushed in to the throngs of the 'cool' group at the school, back to a Valentine's Ball that had left him feeling like he'd received quite the blow, there was not a single word that Wesley could call adequate to describe it.

Hoping, beyond everything in the world, that he would neither see Madison or Nirek this lesson, Wesley slipped through the door to the greenhouse and smiled at the professor.

"Good morning, sir." Wesley managed, ever so softly. It was lucky they were the only two in the room, or else the greeting would have gone amiss. Taking up a work station almost the furthest away from the professor, Wesley waited for other students to show so that the lesson could begin.

With some time between classes, Sophie ran back to her room to get her bandage cleaned and changed before heading to the Greenhouses. She'd taken a pretty bad fall that morning trying out a new trick, and it was just her luck that she'd fallen on a not-so-soft, rocky ground. She'd tumbled head over heels into a rather thorny bush and gotten away covered in bruises and scratches and her muscles rather sore. At least no bones were broken. She didn't bother with the smaller cuts except to wash and disinfect them but there was one particularly nasty wound that needed a bandage.

She could've always gone to the school nurse but Sophie didn't think that was necessary. This wasn't her first rodeo and it wouldn't be her last. She would heal soon enough and meanwhile she just had to put up with the discomfort. It wouldn't stop her from mastering that trick though, and she'd be back on Phoenix the next chance she got.

After she dealt with her wound, Sophie sped walked to Herbology, hoping that the detour she'd made to her room hadn't made her late for class. Even if it did, she had a valid reason. Professor Loverin was a nice dude and he would understand. Entering the room, her lips spread into a broad smile as she realised that she wasn't late. There was one other person there, the boy who had been too much of a wuss to deal with the Snargaluff.

"Hi, Professor," Sophie greeted, taking a seat near the front and reading what had been written on the board. She knew about the spell and knew what it was for but had never tried it out. This would be her opportunity.

Honestly, Jerome had rather enjoyed Herbology the last time, so he made sure of it to attend the final lesson of the year. Admittedly, it wasn't a subject he thought he would enjoy, so it came as a pleasant surprise. So he made his way to the Herboology greenhouses, genuinely looking forward to class, something he never thought he'd say.

He headed inside "S'up Caspar?" he nodded with a grin before taking a seat beside his fellow Gryffindor, giving her a nod "Hi,". He didn't really know how Caspar would react, being called by his first name. Honestly, the man seemed pretty down to earth, and rather chill. He supposed he'd find out by whether or not Caspar told him off for it.

He did a double take on Sophie, who he'd sat next to, noticing the bandages "What happened?" he nodded to the bandaged areas.

Professor Loverin wasn't the sole reason Elyah was taking this class. She wasn't good at this subject, and she also found it extremely boring. But that didn't mean she didn't recognise the need of it. As a future Potion Mistress, Elyah was well aware that all the ingredients she needed came from here. And that was why she had to attend. She had to know how to take care of her ingredients but also where to find them and how to attain them.

But the Professor played a big part. After all, if it was another Professor that looked like James Balan, Elyah would freak. She was already having trouble with that jerk, since he was teaching her favorite lesson. He was just never impressed and the Hufflepuff was running out of patience. But Professor Loverin was kind. He wasn't at all mean.

Arriving at the Greenhouses, Elyah walked inside softly, smiling at the Professor but not speaking a word. She was going to remain silent and simply wait to see what they were going to do today.

As the classroom filled up, Caspar smiled at each of the students as they entered, greeting each of them with a softly spoken hello before allowing them to settle in their seats. There was no small talk in Caspar's mind that morning, so he didn't make it, instead waiting for his watch to tell him that it was time to start the lesson.

Caspar's eyebrows did raise a little at the greeting from Jerome, but he smiled a little at the casual nature of the boy. Did he mind? Not really, but he didn't think he'd be accustomed to all of his students using his first name.

As soon as his watch denoted the hour, Caspar turned to his class as a whole. "Right, everyone, let's make a start. Today we will be looking in to the Herbivicus Charm -- does anyone want to tell the rest of the class what this Charm achieves? Why, as Herbologists, this is a useful spell to master?" Caspar asked, looking around the faces before him hopefully.

Sophie looked up as a boy in her house, Jerome, if she remembered correctly, sat beside her. At his question, she gave a lopsided grin. "Oh, nothing much," she responded lightheartedly. "The ground and I just got into a slight kerfuffle is all. Unfortunately for me, the ground was hard and had pebbles and rocks on its side. But it's not a big deal."

As class started, Sophie turned her attention to Professor Loverin, waiting until he'd finished speaking before raising her hand. "Isn't that the charm that makes plants grow really fast? I think it's useful because plants take ages and ages to grow - except for weeds; some weeds grow really fast. But if the Herbologist needs the plant or the flower really badly and can't wait, he can use the charm to make it grow quickly."

Sophie was pretty confident in her answer. She'd stumbled upon the charm while flipping through a Herbology book and it had stuck with her. She remembered thinking, at that time, that it would be such a great charm for fruit trees - if it worked on fruits.

Caspar's attention turned to Sophie as she began to speak, and a smile spread across his features at the witch's words. She was very good at this subject, something that he was hopeful she might take up for at least an O.W.L., and today she was proving once again that she knew her stuff.

"Very good, Sophie! You're quite right -- five points for Gryffindor -- the spell is for speeding the growing process. An obvious use for that would be the Mandrake plant, if you needed to speed up their growth for potions -- however, some plants do lose their potency, so make sure you research before simply doing these things." Caspar explained, before motioning to the plants in front of his students.

"Today, we will be working on non-magical plants, mostly for safety reasons. Please start with the peonies in front of you and then, well move to the rose bushes." Caspar explained to the class, looking around at their faces hopefully. Of course, non-magical plants weren't going to be as much fun, but there was too much risk otherwise.

As Professor Loverin gave points to her house, Sophie grinned in satisfaction. She might not have liked reading a whole bunch, but she'd found that her Herbology textbook and Care of Magical Creatures textbook were engrossing. She'd learned so much about the different plants and animals by just reading a few pages everyday. At times, she couldn't put the books down. All of that reading had paid off.

She couldn't help but feel a twinge of disappointment when Professor Loverin said they would not be trying the charm out on magical plants, but on non-magical ones. She understood his reasoning, but Sophie never backed down from a risk. In fact, the promise of danger drew her to doing it and instead of keeping her away. But since he was her professor and she respected him, she would do as he said.

Taking out her wand, Sophie stepped up to the peonies, not caring to see if anyone else had started. She knew, from her textbook, that the hand movement was rather complicated for this spell and Sophie wasn't a good drawer or artist. She could barely draw on paper, let alone air. At least on paper, she could see the lines of what she'd drawn and adjust accordingly. The same was not true for air.

Pointing her wand at the peonies, she tried to imitate the shape she'd seen while saying, "Herbivicus!" It didn't work. She practiced the shape for a while, at one point, calling Professor Loverin over to see if she was doing it right. Once she got instruction from him, she tried again, and succeeded, watching in fascination as the peonies began growing. This was so cool! Her only disappointment was the the peonies hadn't fully opened. There were still some that had a long way to go, and a few were half-bloomed, the petals still rather closed up.

She moved on to the rose bushes, wanting to see if she could make her charm stronger and better so that the plant would grow more than the peonies had. She practiced yet again, moving her wand a few times and getting used to the shape and muscle memory. When she felt confident enough, she added the incantation to the movement. "Herbivicus!" The rose bush, which once consisted of only leaves and buds grew, and grew, and grew until the roses were in full bloom. A few here and there remained half closed, but overall, she did a better job than with the peonies.

Reaching between the leaves, she plucked out a fully bloomed rose, not minding the small scratches from the thorns, and gave it to Professor Loverine. "Here you are Professor!" she said cheerily.
