Default Potions Lesson 1





It had turned snowy outside, and the walk along the potions corridor to the first class after Christmas was a little nippy. Inside the classroom it was a tad warmer, Noble having already lit his burner at the front of the class to try and take the chilly edge off the room. Thankfully today's class was a practical one, as evidenced by the trays of ingredients on the side bench, and the room would soon warm up once they started the brewing proper.

Noble lent against the front of his desk, sipping a strong, dark coffee from the new travel mug his daughter had gifted him for Christmas. His gaze moved to the door and the students entering. "Hurry up and come in...let's try keep some of the heat in the room, shall we?" Any other day he would have them turn on their burners early whilst they were covering the theory, but that hardly seemed a wise idea with the initial experiment they'd be performing today.

Well...this was going to be interesting. A trust exercise with the girlfriend who he was currently kind of sort of still fighting with. Forget being on the same page, they weren't even in the same library as each other the past week or so and it sucked.

So did this activity and Eiji was less than enthusiastic about impairing his brewing abilities. It was as though Professor Noble wanted to torture him specifically and the look of disdain he shot the man conveyed as much. Though he did not let it linger for too long despite wanting to. Though, in a twist of ironic fate, he and Missa were in sync on the matter and that made his chest feel stupidly light. "Probably counting on it," he murmured in response, finishing up a bit of obligatory notes before setting his quill down. "I'll get them," he grumbled to Missa before getting up off his stool and moving to retrieve a pair for himself and a pair for her. "Let's get this over with," he grumbled before practically slamming his pair on.

.......and he could see absolutely nothing.

Nope. Nope. He was not doing this. He was not going to waist ingredients like this when he knew he would fail. Even if they were just potions storeroom ones and not those from his own personal supply. And his posture said as much as he folded his arms across his chest and huffed like the mature 14-year-old that he was. "....this is irritating."

So ummm.. this should be fun.

Kamryn moved over to the bench and grabbed the goggles, she returned to her desk and made sure she had all her ingredients before she put the goggles on. She blinked as she slid the goggles over her eyes and her vision went super blurry..

“Oh Merlin. ” She groaned out as she fumbled around and squinted.. Gah how could anyone see what they were doing with these things on?

She squinted and then moved her hand around, trying to find where her mortar and pestle was! She squinted and moved her face very close to her table, trying to see if she could make anything out or if it was just going to be fuzzy and she would have to wing it..

Okay.. there was her mortar.. she felt it with her hands before moving her hands slowly across her desk to find her measuring spoons.

She squinted at them.

Which one was a teaspoon?

LISTEN it's pronounced 'jif' pineapples BELONG on pizza milk comes BEFORE cereal & also it's "CHarrie". amen.

Nina knew how to navigate near-sightedness. She had been doing it for the past four years. Typically with glasses or contacts, but again, the last few weeks before the winter holiday had given her enough practice to know how to navigate. While she had to squint when double checking the numerical values of each ingredient, she very easily managed to three teaspoons of each standard ingredient, beetle eyes, and valerian sprigs with 4 drops of Lethe River water with her mortar and pestle.

Only she had quite the standard to uphold. Doing a potion correctly would only ruin what she had been working toward all year. And so, she “””accidentally””” added an extra drop of Lethe River water and a single beetle eye in excess.

There.

Now it was perfect.

Sebastian had been here the whole time…he was just a little distracted and hadn’t really been paying attention until Professor Noble mentioned their first activity. Wearing vision impairing goggles whilst trying to measure out different potion ingredients sounded like a really good time, and Sebastian was excited to see which goggles he got.

The Hufflepuff went up to the tray with the different goggles and grabbed a pair before walking back to his station. He grinned, holding back a chuckle, watching Kam try to scoop ingredients with her goggles on. It was actually really funny to see. But in all seriousness, he knew it was no laughing matter, especially for those that were blind.

Placing the goggles over his eyes, he quickly had to adjust to get used to the complete blurriness. It was really…frustrating. It only seemed to be blurry when he looked out at far distances, close up was easier. “Well, this will be interesting,” he said to himself. He quickly bent over his station and looked for his mortar and pestle. Finding it rather easily, he searched for the teaspoon. That took a little longer but eventually, by feeling around his station, he found the measuring spoons and holding them up very close to his face searched for the teaspoon size.

Soon he was searching for his container of beetle eyes, accidentally knocking over his mortar and making a very loud racket. “Sorry,” he said sheepishly as he picked it up and placed it back where he had it. He finally found the container of beetle eyes and scooped and dumped three tablespoons into the mortar.

Now to find the Valerian Sprigs! He moved his head as close to the table as he possibly could and looked for them. Through the blurred vision, he found them, doling out the required amount. Again, he moved his head over the surface of the table as close as he possibly could to find the Lethe River water. Once he found it he squeezed out 4 drops of the water into the mortar.

How he did it, he wasn’t sure, but he managed better than he thought he would! Sebastian sat and waited for further instructions. At least with these goggles on he wasn’t distracted by all the pretty girls and cute guys in the room. It really was becoming a problem.

Okay she has found the teaspoon.. hopefully.

Merlin she couldn’t even look at the board to figure out what the heck she needed to measure!

Standard ingredient.. that was one.

She rummaged around her desk and squinted.. was this it? She wasn’t sure,, but it would have to do.. she carefully dipped her teaspoon in and then scooped some up and put it in her mortar.. hopefully.

She repeated the action two more times.. before squinting and what else was on her table.. blobs... she saw blobs..

Okay.. well she pulled another container towards her and squinted more.. Beetles eyes?

Probably?

She scooped those out with her teaspoon... and hopefully most of it made it in?

Now what?

Valerian Sprigs? How many of those? Three? Sure why not.. that went into the mortar.. as did the Lethe river water.. though if she was honest that might have gone all over her table.. Gah!!

Analiese removed her hand from the bowl of beetle eyes and pulled out a tissue. She wiped her dirty hand and carefully placed the tissue on her workstation. She grabbed the jar of standard ingredient and looked around for a teaspoon. Was that a teaspoon? The young Claw grasped the teaspoon and scooped three teaspoons of standard ingredient into her mortar. She replaced the lid on the jar and squinted at the board. Two... no, there teaspoons of... beetle eyes. She knew exactly where the bowl of beetle eyes was. The 12-year-old clutched the bowl and dragged it over to her mortar and pestle. She dipped her teaspoon into the bowl and dug out three teaspoons of beetle eyes. She dropped them into the mortar.

Now what? Analiese turned back towards the board and squinted at it. Merlin, these goggles were giving her a headache now.

Patrick didn’t realize he should have said an individual creature. But why should he have said an individual creature? His answer encompasses them all. But not taking it hard he just decided to write the others and ignore the fact that everyone else said a specific creature.

Hearing the instructions for the next part of the class he followed the others and grabbed a pair of goggles and headed back to his bench. Seeing that he had all the ingredients that Nobel had he began to set out doing the task. Taking a deep breath and pulling the goggles down over his head and onto his eyes he kept those things shut afraid of what kind of goggles he had grabbed.

Deep breath... open eyes. He thought as he opened them and saw absolutely nothing.”great” of course he would get the ones that took his vision. He felt for the beetle eyes remembering three. Now he was patting the bench like Ray Charles playing the piano—forcefully with a rhythm... not a good one but he figured it was the only way to find those pesky valerian sprigs.

To no luck he couldn’t find them at least he wasn’t certain so he grabbed what he thought and added those in too. “Those who are blind have it rough” he didn’t realize just how hard it was to not have good vision or vision at all. He sought out his Lethe River water to try and complete the task but at this point he wasn’t sure if it was water or not.

Oh well.
