PostSubject: Potions Class Lesson One - Introduction   Mon Sep 12, 2011 8:44 am

Evaina stood at the front of her classroom, surveying the assortment of desks and making sure everything was in order. Her hands were settled on her hips as she bit her lip, double checking everything one last time in her head. She was new to this but she wouldn't let that show, she was fairly confident in everything she did. Once she was satisfied she turned on her heel and picked up a single piece of chalk. She wasn't a fan of chalkboards but she figured it would have to do for now. In her neat penmanship she wrote out on the board:

  • Amortentia
  • Draught of Living Death
  • Felix Felicis
  • Polyjuice Potion
  • Veritaserum

Placing the chalk back down she dusted off her hands before wandering back to the front of the room. Taking a seat on the edge of her desk, she crossed one leg over the other and smoothed out her black pencil skirt, placing her hands lightly on the top of her knee. Her attendance sheet sat behind her.

  1. Darling, Blake
  2. DeArbour, Gwen
  3. Lamperouge, Indiana
  4. Levinsky, Valentina
  5. Taylor, Isabella
  6. Weasley, Casey

As the students began trickling in she gave them each a smile, and she waited until all of her students had arrived before beginning to talk. "Hello everyone, and welcome to Potions Class." She paused, making sure she had full attention before she continued. "My name is Professor Moore. This class will be based on 65% discussion, and 35% demonstrations and participation." She knew that might not sound all too appealing, so she explained further. "The potions I deem suitable, we will be able to experiment with hands on. Others, we will simply talk about. I've created my lesson plan entirely on Potions you'd wished to learn about." Turning a bit, she gestured behind her to the board before turning back to her students.

"Now, to start off the class. Can anyone tell me what they know about any of the potions I have listed up there? Effects, characteristics, anything of the sort. Please state your name your first time answering." She looked toward each of them expectantly.

Blake walked into the postions classroom. She had knowledge of everything she knew before her memory loss, so school would be a breeze, so to speak. Supplies in hand, she took a seat in the middle. She had no idea where she would normally sit, so she took a neutral spot. Looking at the board, she jotted down the potions onto her parchement and what she knew of each one of them.

The green eyes girl smiled and nodded to the professor as she introduced herself before shooting her hand up to answer. "Blake Darling. Draught of Living Death is a concoction made from moondew, wormwood, asphodel, valerian roots, sloth brain, and the juice of a sopophorous bean. When mixed together correctly, it will look clear, as if water, and ingested, the drinker will fall into a death-like slumber. The effects can be reversed by a wiggenweld potion," she told the class before quieting back down.

Valentina strode toward her Potions class. She didn't think it would be that much of a bore either, so maybe the rest of her sixth year wouldn't be all that bad. Shifting her book bag to her next shoulder so that she could be more comfortable, she sauntered into the classroom and took a seat around the middle. She didn't like to be smack-dab in the back, or the front either for that matter. She smiled pleasantly toward the Professor and began to arrange her supplies out in the desk in front of her.

Quill in hand, she listened to the Professor's speech, before glancing toward the girl who introduced herself as Blake Darling as she answered in detail about the Draught of Living Death. Scribbling down a couple of things that had been said, Val wrote down the rest of the potions before raising her hand. "Valentina Levinsky. The Amortentia potion is a powerful love potion. When consumed, it causes a powerful obsession and or desire. It has a different aroma to each person who smells it, the smell resembling something most appealing to the person handling the potion. Effects of the drinker are usually instantaneous." She quieted down after her small speech, smiling to herself in triumph.

Indiana entered the classroom before taking a seat in the back. He then listened to the professor made her introduction before she talked about the class basics. Taking a sheet of parchment and a quill, he quickly scribbled down what was on the chalkboard before raising his hand.

"Indiana Lamperouge. Veritaserum is known as the Truth Potion and compels the drinker to tell the truth. Three drops can have someone spill their deepest and darkest secrets. It is colorless, odorless, and tasteless such that it can be easily added to one's food or drink while being mistaken as water. However, Veritaserum has its downsides since it can be rendered useless if the drinker has taken the antidote beforehand or deploys Occlumency to block the effects."

Indiana had a feeling that he might have missed a few things but hey, there could be other things that he didn't know about regarding Veritaserum.

Evaina would say that she was fairly impressed with the answers she was receiving from her students. Then again, most of them were either graduating in a year or in their graduating year, so she knew she shouldn't expect any less of their intelligence. At least they'd actually been learning something before she'd come along to take the teaching job. One eyebrow was raised as she expressed her impression with them, and she stood up from her desk, beginning to slowly walk along the front of the room in a sort of slow, pace-like saunter, her heels clicking on the floor.

"Very good, Ms. Darling, Ms. Levinsky and Mr. Lamperouge." She first praised her students proudly, before continuing to speak about each potion they'd chosen. Placing her hands together, she twirled so that she was facing them at a stand-still before she continued speaking.

"As Ms. Darling covered, the Draught of Living Death's ingredients are moondew, wormwood, asphodel, valerian roots, sloth brain, and the juice of a sopophorous bean. The single ingredient she left out though, is crushed snake fangs. In another lesson, we will learn the correct way to create this particular potion." Twirling her wand in between her index and middle finger, she pointed it at the board and the ingredients appeared beneath the heading of Draught of Living Death. Turning back to her students, she continued. "It does place the drinker into a deep, almost death-like slumber, and Blake was correct with the antidote. Which is a Wiggenweld Potion." She paused before smiling slightly. "Can anyone tell me a couple of ingredients that might be in a Wiggenweld Potion?"

She moved on to the next potion that had been selected, the Amortentia potion. "Ms. Levinsky pretty much covered most of what you have to know." She began. "The potion (also known as the "Love" potion) causes an extremely powerful obsession or infatuation in the drinker." She began to slowly walk across the front of the room again as she spoke. "When the potion is inhaled, the aroma is different to each individual. Whether it be the aroma of cut grass, or maybe roses, whatever is most attractive to the person (whether it be consciously or they are unaware of it being their favorite) will be what they smell the most." She knew she was talking a lot and didn't want to bore her students, but the quicker she got the lecture over the faster they'd get to the hands on activity. "It is possible to smell more then one thing. Also, this potion does not create an actual love for something! It is all under a false pretense. We will be experimenting with this particular potion today." She let them know.

Taking a seat on the edge of her desk again, she began talking about the last potion mentioned. "Mr. Lamperouge explained the Veritaserum Potion rather flawlessly. As to keep my lecture a bit shorter, I will hope you all listened to what he said. I will add in that there are some methods of resistance to this potion as well as the antidote, and it's use is controlled by the Ministry of Magic." She paused, tapping her chin before adding. "Also, the person that is victim to this potion will only tell what they believe to be true, which could end up being wrong in the end. That is why this potion is not completely reliable. One must be very careful and wary of this powerful potion though, because it's resemblance as water as well as it's lack of odor and taste leave it to be quite fatal at times." Exhaling, she turned to allow key points to appear on the board. She could ask more questions, but perhaps she'd save that for the end.

"Would anyone like to tell me anything about the last two before we continue to our hands on activity? Wouldn't want to bore you any more then I need to." She said with a smirk, glancing around the room expectantly.

Isabella rushed into the dungeons quickly, taking a seat in the back. She was extemely late, and hoped her teacher wouldn't notice, as she had overslept. Realizing the teacher had asked a question, she raised her hand. "I-I think the Wiggenweld potion requires Flobberworm mucus, Horklump juice, Chizpurfle fangs, Billywig sting slime, shredded dittany, and... Maybe some Wiggentree bark?" She listed the ingredients slowly, picking them off a half-remembered memory of an old Potions book.

As her teacher moved on to the Amorentia potion, Isabella closed her eyes, and inhaled deeply, taking in the dreamy aroma of the faux-love potion. It had a rugged, man-nish quality, with a hint of woodsy pine. She opened her eyes suddenly, understanding in an instant about what she was thinking. That smell was familiar... No, it couldn't be, but yet it was! Tristan's scent was what Isabella had imagined. She forced herself to stop thinking about the distracting emotions and tuned in again just as Ms. Moore was explaining Veritaserum.

Now that was a potion! It could make anyone tell what they believed was the truth! Maybe she could use it to find out what Casey was up to... Indi was in this class as well, Isabella suddenly noticed. He explained the potion's many uses without a hesitation. She waved at him quickly, before turning to Ms. Moore again. She asked if any of the students had any other facts about the previous two potions. She shook her head slowly, and waited for the professor's response.
