PostSubject: Potions - Lesson Three (Fifth to Seventh Years)   Sun Nov 01, 2015 10:15 am

James sat quietly at the front of the Potions class at his desk. That room had been scrubbed since his lesson with the younger years, and the front of the room denoted that today was going to be a test, and that silence was expected from the moment they came in to the room.

Before James were a pile of papers, and the cauldrons were set up accordingly.

The board denoted that only a pen was allowed on the desk for each students, and James expected his instructions to be followed to the dot. Anyone who didn't... well, they were in for a verbal lashing, at least.

As the hour closed in, James couldn't help the small smile on his features. Today was going to put his students to the test, and the idea of some of them struggling was enough to made him smirk to himself.

She was kinda less scared? Maybe. James Balan was still her least favourite person in this castle, since he scared her more than anyone with his cold and doom demeanor, but since the last lesson, in which she had done pretty well and had seen him quite satisfied, he seemed a little less hateable.

Gathering her things and all her mental strength, she moved quickly down the corridors of the Dungeons and towards the Potions Classroom. What she would find there was a surprise. But she had a bad feeling.

Walking into the classroom, she looked around and gave the Professor a nod as she saw she was the first of the students to arrive. Maybe after the last lesson the other two had given up. She didn't know which was worse, but she was already feeling uncomfortable being alone with James.

Her fear came true as she glanced on the board, and saw what was to be expected. Only a pen. They were having a test now, weren't they? Sighing, more to herself, she followed the instructions given, not in the mood for any form of scolding, or punishment.

Potions was one of those subjects that TJ was okay at. He didn't excel in the subject, but he also wasn't overly terrible at the process of Potion making either. Mostly, however, it depended on the times of the lesson. Shortly after his transformations, he was hopeless because he wasn't well, in the middle of the month, he did better than average because he was getting better again, and toward the end of the lunar cycle, he was the best he could be.

Which meant he always got a varying report in Potions, depending on which day Professor Balan decided to throw a test at them.

As TJ entered the room, he didn't greet the professor, everyone knew Professor Balan wasn't a talkative man, instead he looked to the board and noted that they would be doing something different. Then, TJ noted the other person in the room, and he sent her a smile, moving to the station just to Amethyst's left.

Making sure Balan wasn't watching, TJ mouthed a 'hello' to his friend, and then motioned to her to ask if she had a pen he could borrow. Potions was one of those lessons he never brought his pens to, as usually they didn't use them.

Peter didn't really understand professor Balance but as long as the man taught them something useful everything was good. He walked into the classroom a little sleepily, as he hadn't gone on his regular morning run and his energy levels were down to the floor. Shaking his head a little, Peter did a double take when he looked at the board. There was a test?! A TEST?! He hadn't been told, he was entirely unprepared. Holyshit, this wasn't good. If he didn't pass Potions class, he would certainly on the list for the students who wouldn't graduate.

He took his seat by the back of the room and read the further instructions. Only pen. Okay, Peter had a pen, at least. Putting the rest of his belongings on the floor, Peter left out a black pen, clicking it nervously. He wasn't sure what the test about, he really had no idea. How could there be a test and him not know about it? Oh, wait. He almost laughed at his thoughts, because there had been many tests that he hadn't known about and he had still passed them. However, Professor Balance wasn't the kind professor. Still clicking his pen nervously, Peter glanced back at the door - for a second expecting Effie and Bella to walk in, but his eyes dropped once he remembered that he wouldn't see them again. At least not at school.

Confident. That was how Ruby was feeling today. Her lessons had been going well, she had a great breakfast so her mind was sharp, and she looked amazing, even in her school uniform. She was terrified of the Potions professor. She hated when professors didn't like her. And she couldn't tell with this one and that was a little out of her comfort zone. Ruby had been with this Professor since day one, and still he had shown zero emotion towards her. Something Ruby hated.

She waltzed in the classroom rather gracefully and fabulously, and then froze. Test. She wasn't told there was going to be a test. Ruby's heart started pounding. But if the Professor could show no fear, then so should Ruby. One didn't fight fire with fire. It never ended well in Ruby's experience. So she just decided to not do anything about it. She nodded towards the Professor. Today was a test of not only potions, but her will power.

She wanted to yell and scream and throw a fit because THEY WERE NOT PREPARED. But she knew it would do her no good, and land her a zero which would not look good for her marks. So she did exactly what was expected. She got out JUST A PEN and awaited instructions on what to do next.

It had only been a month since the attack and the subsequent birth of her son and Adaline was not really up for leaving her son to the hands of house elves however she knew that she needed to attend lessons to be able to graduate. Having missed most of Potion's due to her pregnancy she had to attend this lesson; she didn't care if there was going to be a test or not. She had practically studied hard for the past month, having Aiden's and Kai's notes to learn from on what they did.

Stepping into the classroom, the observant female noticed the words on the blackboard and held back a grimace. It seems they were going to have a test; hopefully she would be able to pass it.

Moving through the tables, she sat near the front but not all the way at the front. Taking out her pen, she placed it on the table and sighed softly. It was going to be a long day.

The Slytherin sixth year moved silently towards the Potion's classroom, his steps weighed heavily with the deaths he had witnessed just a mere month ago. The attack had dampened the happy feeling he and Sebastian had been in when they had started their date in the Room of Requirement. It had angered Aiden that someone would dare to attack on such a day like Valenties.

With a nasty glare, the sixth year stepped into the classroom and, not even bothering to greet anyone, he huffily made his way towards the center of the room where he sat in one of the free chairs.

Flicking his eyes towards the board, he noted that they only needed a pen; which meant they were having an impromptu test. Sighing, Aiden looked around and noted, with obvious surprise, that Adaline was here. She had only given birth a month ago and her body was still not strong enough to be walking around but being a Seventh year she had to attend the last lessons, he mused silently before turning back to the front of the classroom.

The night of the attack, Alexander had been home from school. There was a small gathering of Purebloods at his manner - mostly for a small celebration of Valentine's Day. The Fletchers had been invited, of course, and Alexander had spent the majority of the night with Chara. Supervised, of course.

So, when the news had come around of the attack on the school, Alexander could not deny that he was relieved that both Chara and himself had been away from the awful scenario that neither of them could have been safe from.

Alexander was worried, no man in their right mind would be otherwise, but he was worried inwardly. He knew he had to be a pillar of strength for his fiance, and it would not do well to let his enemies know he was scared.

Which meant Alexander slipped in to Potions, his expression was neutral and he moved to the back of the classroom, making himself comfortable at the station. He noted the instructions on the board, and (thinking it rather curious) followed the instructions. His eyes flickered to the door, wondering if Chara would be joining him that day, but only time would tell on that matter.

Waiting for his students to arrive, James copied the piece of parchment before him each time one of them arrived, making sure he had enough tests for the room. Hopefully one of them had been studying, otherwise James would be taking great pleasure in writing foul reports for each of the childrens' parents to read.

"Morning." James greeted the class when the time for the lesson to begin struck. The pieces of paper moved through the room with a flick of his wand, one landing on each desk. "You have an hour to complete everything on this list. I suggest you work hard. No books are to be used." James told them, and then picked up his Potions magazine, signalling it was time for them to get on with the days test.

Adaline took only one look at the test paper before grinning softly and nodding her head. She knew the answers to these questions and she was quite sure she would pass it. Though the sixth question was more of a task to do she was quite sure she would be able to do it pretty easily.

Taking her pen in her hand, Adaline looked back down at the paper and read carefully through the questions.

1. Referred to as Wolfsbane and Monkshood, this plant is extremely poisonous and is shaped somewhat like a monk's cowl, hence one of its names.

2. A potion made in England by E. M. L. Potions Co., it was used as a pomade and was effective against dandruff.

3. Read the follow ingredients carefully and chose the corresponding finished potion.

* Crushed Snake Fangs
* Moondew
* Wormwood
* Asphodel
* Valerian roots
* Sopophorous bean
* Sloth brain

4. What is Golpalott's Third Law?

5. Can you correctly name the ingredients to the Elixir to Induce Euphoria?

It didn't take Adaline long before she was writing down the answers to the questions with a small smile on her lips. These were pretty easy, especially for a seventh year Ravenclaw who had nothing to do but read while she was pregnant.

1. Aconite.

2. Bundimun Pomade.

3. Draught of the Living Dead.

4. Golpalott's Third Law is the antidote for a blended poison will be equal to more than the sum of the antidotes for each of the separate components.

5. Mint Sprigs, Wormwood, Shrivelfig, Porcupine Quills, Castor Beans

With a nod of her head her eyes focused on the sixth task on the paper.

6. Brew the Wiggenweld Potion.

The Wiggenweld Potion? She thought with pursed lips before grinning softly as she got out of her seat and went to the ingredients cabinet.


Moving back to her desk, she pulled out the book she had for potions and turned to the page where she knew the Wiggenweld Potion was and flicked her eyes through the instuctions before nodding her head. She knew how to do this.

Without taking a look at the time that they had left, she moved through the steps one by one and made sure to keep an eye on the colors.

Red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, indigo, pink, red, yellow, purple, red, orange, yellow, orange, turquoise, pink and finally it turned green.

When she saw the last color, Adaline breathed a sigh of relief. She did it right. Her potion was correct and she had no fear of failing. Smiling, she bottled up the potion and cleaned up her workstation a little bit to make sure it wasn't messy.
