 Potions - Lesson One (First - Fourth Years)

Go down 

PostSubject: Potions - Lesson One (First - Fourth Years)   Tue Sep 01, 2015 7:32 pm

The holidays had not been long enough for James, truth be told, he was not quite ready to come back to work, but he had little and less choice on that. Stepping in to the classroom that was now his own, James checked that everything was in order before taking his seat behind his desk.

With a flick of his wand, two words appeared on the board behind the man. Sleeping Draught. It wasn't an overly complex potion, but James knew that it would keep his students busy for the lesson. Not to mention, by the end of the lesson, they would find out who could successfully brew potions, and who would be spending the night in the hospital wing for poisoning themselves.

The latter made James smile to himself.

There was no better way to teach the kids, in his mind, than to make them their own guinea pigs on their potions. That way they would concentrate so much more.

Knowing that potions class was back made Finley happy. Mostly because it was the one class where he could work with Naomi and together they could make a truly amazing potion - okay, maybe not always amazing, but rather good! Hurrying down the stairs to the class, Finley couldn't help but wonder which potion they would be covering that lesson.

Hopefully something useful, practical.

Holding the door open for his best friend, Finley followed Naomi to their usual seat at the back of the room. Professor Balan was still somewhat intimidating, truth be told, and Finley kept his head down as he sat at the desk. It took only a few moments for him to have his textbook and notebook out in front of him.

Swinging his legs idly back and forth, Finley wondered who else would be attending the lesson today. Hopefully more Ravenclaws, because he desperately wanted to win the house cup. Again.

Shockingly, no one recognised the girl from her world tour. Maybe people just didn't pay attention to Muggle music. Truth be told, it upset the girl a bit to know that she wasn't as popular or famous as she thought she'd be. The girl mulled over her thoughts as she walked to her potions class. It was one of the classes she didn't care for as the professor was a bit intimidating.

Entering the classroom, she noticed the class was either really small, or she was extremely early. It put her in a bit of a sour mood, causing her greeting to Professor Balan to be a bit less enthusiastic that what she'd originally been going for.

The girl took a seat and slung her bag on the floor before taking out her Potions book. Crossing her arms, she stared down at the book until it was time for the professor to start the class.

As the class filled up, James pursed his lips, waiting for the clock to get to the hour. When it did, the man stood up, launching in to the lesson with his usual tone - a tone that said he was doing them a favour being here and that they should never, ever forget that.

"Morning." James greeted the students before him with little and less enthusiasm. Motioning to the board behind him, James continued. "As you will see, the lesson is denoted on the board. Which one of you has done some reading this summer and can tell me what the potion does?"

His eyes scanned the room, expecting an answer that consisted a little more than the absolute obvious. And Merlin, if he got simplistic he was not going to go easy on the person who gave him the answer. Folding his arms across his chest, James waited for the students to answer.

((Let's just pretend Alberi was here, okay?))

Here was Alberi yet again with Potions lesson, something he didn't dislike but it wasn't his favourite either. He still had a hard time to understand it and his summer didn't give him time to actually think over it. His time was mostly dealing with his annoying sister, doing his homework while reading his books for the next year, being on some form of technology and afterwards learning Ancient Runes. Had he had more time, he would have learnt more for Transfiguration as well and after that - Potions, but sadly his parents thought that he should have a sibling.

So here he was, in Potions class, only with an alright knowledge over the second year, which was pathetic to what he had learned in his first year. Though it didn't really make a difference, the only thing he didn't learn was how to make the different Potions, anything else was, to one point or another, clear. And considering they used their books to make the potion of the day anyways, it really didn't matter if they know the way to make it or not.

Besides having greeted the teacher upon entering, he hadn't payed attention to anything else going on in the class, not even looking up to the board. Rather he was deep in thought while subconsciously tugging onto the gloves he was wearing everywhere until his tan went away. That bloody tan... Just when they started did he look up to the board and noticed the potion. Wait! Wasn't that what he made in last year's last lesson? That was interesting... He quickly put his hand in the air at the teacher's question. “The Sleeping Draught can put the person who drinks it into a deep but not very long sleep. It's more powerful version is the Draught of the Living Dead, it being much more complex to be made.”

Naomi and Finley entered class together, as they did every other year. It would be awful next year, when their on year age difference forced them to split up for Potions. While Naomi was confident in her Potioneering, her Potions with Finley always turned out just a little bit better than the Potions she made on her own.

Professor Balan seemed just as cheerful as always, so the two Ravenclaws made their way to the back of the classroom, trying to put as much distance between themselves and the stern professor as possible.

Class began with a gruff greeting and a question. Naomi listened to Alberi's answer before raising her hand as well. "The draught is often used in a medical setting for patients who need to be asleep for a procedure or for transporting large or dangerous animals," she added. It wasn't exactly what the potion did per se, but she figured that a use of the potion would be a good answer anyway.

The first answer that came had James pursing his lips. Whilst he appreciated that the boy had read the book - perhaps memorised it blind? - he did not appreciate an answer that wasn't called for.

Which, only frustrated James more when it happened twice.

Allowing a pause between the two answers and his response, James let out a sigh, mostly to himself, but obviously showing his discontent with what had happened. James had never set out to be a likable professor, so he was not bothered by winning the love of his students, only getting the grades necessary for a healthy bonus to land in his pocket.

"It is nice to see the two of you can read." James told them, his eyes scanning the room to the others in the room. "However, you cannot listen, it seems. Make sure that you take note to answer the question directly when it is presented to you, because it will be the difference between passing and failing your exams." The professor explained, not telling them they were right because that was a waste of his breath.

"Today you will be making the potion, as I'm sure you have worked out. Work on your own, or work in pairs if you wish. By the end of the lesson, I expect a vial of the potion from each of you. Grades will be published in your common rooms. Begin."

Potion Instructions:

Class Now Closed
Alberi Woodston - 10 points for attendance + 3 points for answer = 13 points.

Naomi O'Hare - 10 points for attendance + 3 points for answer = 13 points.
