Default Potions Lesson 2 - the Kuznetsov indicator



It’s a warm spring day outside, and the morning sunshine streams over the lush green mountainside and through the windows of the potions classroom, even with the white fabric blinds lowered to reduce the glare. On the benches in front of the windows, trays of glassware shine and sparkle in the light. Several of the trays house familiar shapes, at least to the older students – test tubes, conical flasks and measuring cylinders – whereas another contains a pile of long, thin demarcated columns with strange looking taps.

The Potions professor is at the front of the class, extracting the juice from a lemon with his wand. Beakers of other liquids line the desk, alongside several brown bottles and what looks to be a bowl of sugar from the kitchens. “Hurry up and find your seats,” he says, gaze steady and tone as no-nonsense as ever. “Chop chop!”

It was never a good sign when the required equipment for a Potions lesson didn't include a cauldron. That had always been the case for Kaiser, but especially now... though admittedly even brewing something was not as easy as it had once been. Since his lengthy stint in the infirmary for the broken bones and head injury - cause still unknown, but he didn't fall, he never fell - his ability to concentrate had been proven to be the biggest casualty, but his emotions had taken a not insignificant hit too. It wasn't... easy. School was almost unbearable.

Trying to ignore the ghost of a headache that lingered threateningly above his eyes, Kaiser entered the potions classroom, bag slung over his shoulder. "Morning," he half mumbled - it was largely automatic by now - as he found his seat and settled himself into it.

So theory class.... yet again. Jillian enjoyed the experimental side of Potions more. All these theory classes are dull and ugh... But oh well, it's better to have them than nothing at all. Whilst walking towards the classroom she was making sure that all her stuff are in her bag like textbooks, her quill and notebook because that seems to be the only thing they will be needing for today. Fun.

Entering the classroom she paced towards the nearest seat she can find. Trying her best to be as quiet as possible "Hello, Professor" she said in a rather soft voice as she sits down while setting her bag near her.

"Hello, Professor Noble," she greeted upon entering the classroom and finding her seat. Honestly, she didn't mind theory classes so much. And with as much as they had been shuffled around the place this term, she could understand the idea behind them. I mean, carrying all that stuff everywhere? No es bueno.

Anyway, she had the required stuff in her bag, so she was good to go.

Blake wanted to brew something!!!! Why couldn't they just brew a potion. I mean finding out Schmoe was a cookie thief was kinda fun, but he was ready for something more this time. Coming into the classroom Blake took at seat and gave a head nod to Professor Noble. Not daring himself to say anything, it might come out snarky if he did.

Truthfully, Claudine liked the theoretical lessons so she didn’t mind one bit as she set foot in the room. Mercifully, there had not been a need for the lesson to be relocated as with the case of Transfiguration sometime back. The Snakette was in a fairly good mood though it wasn’t reflected on her face. She nodded to Noble and flashed him a tiny smile; she liked him, he was one of those Professors that explain things clearly and made learning somewhat easier.

Ignoring everyone else, including Blake, Claudine selected a seat at the back as usual. Out came her books, quills and ink. She was quite ready for the lesson.

Lucas didn't know how to feel about this lesson. The sign said that they'd only need their textbooks, wand, and writing equipment, which meant that they were going to have a theory lesson, no doubt. And that was something he was always okay with. No chance of something exploding or chopping something wrong or...... or any of it.

But, then again, this was a theory lesson. They could always get a little boring, couldn't they? If the lesson wasn't Astronomy. To make matters worse, it was nine in the morning. Nine!

Yawning, the Gryffindor entered the room, one hand gripping his bag while the other covered his mouth. He instinctively made his way towards a nearby desk, one that happened to be close to where Jillian was sitting. His eyes didn't take long to find Noble - not when the man was already shouting instructions - and he said a simple, "Hello, Professor." Hey. Hi. Hello.

But then, his eyes found something a lot more interesting - no offence, sir - and they immediately lit up. Test tubes? Flasks? Measuring cylinders?? Was this a more science-based lesson? Because if so, maybe this wouldn't be so bad, after all.

It was only after he sat down near Jillian - "Hey!" - that confusion settled in when he noticed the....... bowl of sugar? Uh??

The hour of the day hadn’t bothered Carys one bit. Mornings were always good for voluntary exercise, and also for art. Morning light was different than the rest of the day, after all, and that made it beautiful. Just as evening light was also beautiful, but it was morning. And it was Potions, so art theory wasn’t exactly something that she needed to go into, even in her head. Especially when it was probably going to be a theory lesson, so that definitely meant she shouldn’t distract herself. Even if there was an awful lot to distract her.

Either way, her head of house got a bright smile from the brunette as she’d headed into the classroom. “Good morning Professor Noble,” she added, heading to an open seat, waving at Jillian, Dalia and Lucas. Leaving a seat open in case her sister was going to be coming soon. Just in case.

Fiona was feeling very irritable thanks to the atmosphere of Beauxbatons combined with recent events. Was it too late to send an owl to her parents begging them to remove her from such a toxic place? Those dark thoughts swirled around in her mind as she entered the classroom.

"Good morning, Professor Noble," she greeted with an actual smile since he was a decent enough teacher. Heading for a seat in the middle of the class in front of Claudine and got ready for the lesson.

Potions was usually a good class no matter what time of day because it often reminded Carsyn of baking, which was something she was conveniently decent at. Also it was two days before her fifteenth birthday so nothing could really damper her mood. The weather was looking great, which only made her long even more for her traveling summer adventures.

"Good morning, Professor Noble," she greeted, sliding into the open seat next to her sister and nodding at her.

"Hello Professor," Cecelia greeted cheerfully as she entered class, looking neater than she normally did. She always made an extra effort with Professor Noble 'cause he was kinda judgy as professors went and she didn't want him to think that she was the messy little tornado of a girl that she actually was.

Looking around for a moment, curious as ever, the blonde smiled a little and then headed off to grab a seat. She was READY to go.

Despite recent occurrences, Gunnar was in a fairly good mood this morning as he entered the Potions classroom, though it had nothing to do with the particular subject. "Good morning, Professor," he greeted Noble in a civil tone as he passed the man, his eyes soon falling on the objects in his hands before noticing the items on the desk next to him. He hoped they wouldn't be making lemonade today. Not that he didn't like the beverage, it was just a very underwhelming thought.

He cut his eyes towards Kaiser momentarily, but soon found his own usual seat and began pulling out his necessary class materials to prepare himself for the lesson.

It was a good job the classroom was empty, otherwise Noble might not have heard that mumbled greeting. “Morning, Kaiser,” he replied, eyes narrowing. He was well aware of the Slytherin’s stay in the infirmary, and wondered if he should be concerned. Whilst there wasn’t need of cauldrons today, there was need of focus and concentration.

Noble tossed the lemon half he’d been juicing into the bin, before repeating the charm he’d previously been using to start squeezing the other half. As he looked up from the citrus fruit, Jillian arrived as settled into a seat near the door. Someone trying to make a quick exit at the end of class, perhaps? “Hello, Jillian,” he greeted with a nod.

Anyway, she had the required stuff in her bag, so she was good to go.

The lemon juiced, Noble moved to trash the other peel, and then put the glass beaker to one side. They’d be needing it later.

“Hello, Daila,” he greeted the fifth year Hufflepuff, as he used the sink at the front desk to rinse his hands. “Textbook and quill out, if you please.”

My my, everyone was quiet today…and Noble wasn’t entirely sure if that was a good thing or not when it came to Blake. Hopefully the Slytherin would keep his snark, and his judgement, to himself.

A fellow first-year snake soon followed, and Noble nodded in response to her silent greeting. Her immediate organisation of her workspace was noted, even if she was trying to hide at the back of the class.

Yes, it was nine in the morning. Just like every other week of the term. And no, Noble didn’t appreciate that yawn, as he made known in his reply. “Wakey wakey, Lucas.”

That look as the Gryffindor spotted the trays of equipment though? A pleasant surprise indeed.

The corner of Noble’s lips curled at the bright and breezy greeting of the fourth year Hufflepuff. Good to see that some people were awake and ready to go. “Morning, Carys.” They’d soon find out whether it was a good one or not.

It was always interesting, seeing how the first years settled in. Especially when it came to this time of year, with the summer holidays looming. He’d gotten the distinct sense that Fiona wasn’t the fondest of the stay here, which was understandable enough. “Morning, Fiona,” he replied with a nod.

He wasn’t at all surprised to see Carsyn follow not far behind her sister, and then join her at the same work bench. “The same to you, Carsyn,” he replied as she settled into her seat.

That extra effort was worth it, though honestly, Noble had seen enough of the first around the school to she was more than that neatened uniform suggested. Not that he minded though, as long as she was conscientious in her work in his class. “Hello, Cecelia.”

Noble glanced up to the clock, noting it was soon time to start. The Slytherin Prefect slipped in just in time. “Morning, Gunnar,” Noble replied as Gunnar got settled in his seat.

And with that, it was time to start class. Noble clapped his hands together loudly to get their attention – or, possibly, for some of them, to wake back them up. “Your starter for ten this morning… what can we use to identify potions? I’m looking for the obvious things…and the not so obvious things.”

And he expected everyone to answer. There were plenty of viable answers out there.

Claudine, having set up her lesson materials neatly before her, switched her attention between arriving classmates (she may or may not be keeping an eye out for Bernie) and Noble. She was intrigued at what he was doing. She spared a moment to give Fiona a nod. Most students tended to sit in front of her and that was the way she liked it; this way, she was able to observe them.

Then the lesson was starting. Claudine’s quill was already in her hand, ready to make notes. The tip hovered over her book as she paused to think of an answer. Up went her hand with the quill. “Our senses, especially by using our eyes and noses.’’

Carsyn may have arched an eyebrow at the Slytherin First year, and had she been older she might have even said something. But as she was only a first year, there was a certain level allotted. The eyes were fine and definitely one of the obvious answers that she would have given, but one didn't go sticking their nose in unknown potions. There was a reason for the saying 'don't stick your nose in other people's beeswax'. Actually, did people say that or did she make that up? Who knew?

But what she did know was something she may have used to identify potions. "Color and consistency of the potion. The potions that we have brewed up to this point, color is a big factor because it's generally pointed out in our textbooks what color something should be at every step of the way, including the final product."

If he had noticed the narrowing of Noble's eyes, Kaiser gave no outward sign. The same went for the glance from Gunnar. Perhaps he had noticed both and opted against reacting, and perhaps he had noticed nothing. It depended, really, on whether he was the kind of person who was apt to not notice his surroundings.

He had his book and writing implements out, though it was difficult to say how much use either would get. It didn't seem like very long at all before Professor Noble did the hand clap that indicated he wanted their attention.

Okay. So. Identifying potions. What... could they use? How did they do that? For a moment, Kaiser completely blanked. The only thing that came to mind at first was 'the label', and he had a feeling such an answer might not go down well. Or maybe it would, but he decided not to let someone else find that out.

After a lot of turning the question over in his head, to the point that it started to not make much sense at all, Kaiser reluctantly put up his hand. "Test subjects," he said, and left it at that. He would likely never test a random unknown potion on anyone or anything, but the question was about what could be used, and, technically, you could use a test subject.

Jillian focused at the materials they were going to use for today. None really caught her eye to be excited for but she did take note with most of it. And also trying to think of what kind of experiment they will be doing today... Just in case Professor Noble won't make it a theory class all the way. Fingers crossed.

Jillian straightened her back a bit when she saw Lucas sat close to her. Smiling at the Gryffindor and her hand slightly waving at him. "Hello" she whispered back at him. More familiar faces came in as well, giving a soft smile at Carys and gave her a wave as well.

A big clap startled her a bit... which came from the professor himself. Focusing on him now as he started his lesson. Of course first 15 minutes of the lesson will always be the theoretical part but this one question in particular seemed a bit...... vague?.... Difficult?... There are a ton of possible answers for this. Jillian thought hard for a second. "the smell, professor." Some potions have a distinctive smell, could be nice and sometimes could be foul.

Potions was the one solace of the term he could unequivocally rely on and that went beyond his own preference for the subject about just about all others and even his own agenda in his performance hinging on his ability to take Alchemy next term. While he would never actually say it to the man's face, much of the relief he felt in stepping into the Potions setting was because of the professor himself. It was why Eiji often offered a half smile whenever he entered.

Today was no different.

Though the site of a lemon and bowl of sugar...set him on edge a bit and only because of his mum's baking tendencies that went hand-in-hand far too often with his little sister's like of citrus. Though he DID also remember, and no one ask him why, that lemon and sugar could make for quite the nice facial scrub.

Again. No one ask him why he knew this. No one.

Eiji was well settled into his seat beside KAISER as the lesson began and rather liked his fellow Slytherin's answer. The fifth year was quite ready to sit the question and answer out as he usually did, but something in Professor Noble's eyes told him that that would not entirely fly today. So, his hand was up. "The label," he offered.

The man HAD said obvious. Could not get any more obvious than that.

A theory class was on the schedule yet again it seemed as Cole sat in the back of the class next to Claudine and viewed the beakers of liquid up on the professor desk. He had slipped in just before Professor Noble had gotten things started and had waved a silent hello to him. Cole was in a mood that he would describe as best as grouchy considering that he had overslept and missed breakfast. He wasn't very talkative when he hadn't eaten anything since last night.

The peers around him quickly started to sprout out ways to identify potions. Cole thought hard on what he could say that nobody had said because he usually didn't like repeating answers, but nothing new came to mind so he raised his hand anyway to give an answer. "You can identify potions by its odour or lack their off, it's colour and consistency like if it's thick or watery."

'Wakey wakey, Lucas.'

........

................

Lucas froze. Eyes wide and his heart thumping wildly, he first stared at Noble and then stared at a patch on the table in embarrassment. There was an odd feeling that he had a million lights shining on him right now. Or that he had every pair of eyes on him right now and he wanted nothing more than to sink under the table.

Where was that black hole to swallow him up?

In the end, he just gave the man an odd smile and said nothing. Wakey wakey. If this wasn't going to wake him up, nothing would.

Maybe it was a good thing that he'd noticed Carys's wave at that moment. He managed to offer her a smile and a wave in return before turning his attention back to the front and to that hand clap, that was enough to cause him to jump a little.

Right. Question. Focus, Dakest.

What could they use to identify potions? The answers were....... obvious, weren't they? You could just...... tell. Or maybe it had a lot to do with being in magical education for four years that helped. But not all potions were as easy as that, were they? Because they even looked too similar and that only confused him even more.

He didn't know how long he was sitting there, lost in his own thoughts, but eventually, he raised a hand in the air. "Uh, well, see," Not a great start. "Some potions give off a..... a bit of steam? Or a sheen? Because of the nature of the potion itself, I guess. And that steam will immediately tell you that there's something magical about the liquid and it's obviously a potion," he finished off lamely.

The trouble with not raising your hand straight away was that everyone else took your answer before you even got the CHANCE to offer it up. Cecelia was having that issue now and it seemed like her classmates were making it their mission to force her to think a LOT more than she'd intended to in order to find an answer to Professor Noble's question.

Hmm..

"Well, if you're able to SEE what ingredients a person is working with WHILE they're in the process of brewing the potion, you could make an educated guess on what potion it was they were trying to make." Uh-huh, you could!

Well then.

Yes, he had said he was looking for the obvious things too. But really, was it so hard to actually read the textbook, and not just repeat each other?

Sigh.

“Yes, sight and smell are the two primary senses we use when approaching a potion for the first time,” Noble responded, picking up a stick of white chalk and writing sight and smell on the blackboard at Claudine and Jillian’s answers. “Colour is a particularly important visual cue, as Carsyn noted. As are other visual cues, such as the appearance of the surface of the potion…whether it has a shimmer or other evidence of magic, as Lucas said. A great example of that is Felix Felicis…otherwise known as liquid luck. When brewed properly, it resembles molten gold, with golden droplets that leap across its surface.” He added colour and magical qualities to the list on the board under sight. “And it is definitely always worth considering the consistency, or viscosity, or mentioned by Cole…either by gently swirling the container the potion is held in, or by using something like a glass rod to try stirring and moving it. Is the potion thick or thin…smooth or lumpy?” All important things to think about.

Kaiser’s hand went up next, with what could only be described as a controversial answer. Noble’s brow furrowed a moment, briefly reminded about one of his former students. And when he spoke, his expression was serious. “That rather depends on what you’re testing, and why,” Noble replied to the Slytherin. “For potion identification purposes, it should certainly not be a first port of call. There are plenty of other features to consider first. If it’s absolutely needed, however, it is important that experiments on any living cells, beasts or beings are done in an ethical manner.” That stressed, he moved on.

Eiji decided to employ a different tact in his answer, and Noble’s lip curled into a smirk. The boy had guts, that was for sure. “The label is certainly a good place to start. It’s best not just to rely on it though…labels can easily be out of date or changed. Always check that what’s in a container resembles what the label suggests it should before using it…and if in doubt, run further tests.” He added labelling to the list on the board.

He turned to Cecelia next, and he was relieved that the first year had taken the time to think about other features one might see. Noble nodded. “Yes, knowing even one of the ingredients can help narrow things down…especially if you have some idea about the potion’s purpose too.” Known ingredients was written on the board.

“You could also consider temperature of the potion, either with a thermometer, or by hovering your hand over the potion itself,” Noble said, adding it to the other suggestions, before putting the chalk on his desk, and straightening his robes as he strolled around his desk. His lips were pursed, a sense of stern disappointment in his gaze. “But the key answer I was looking for is that was can identify potions by observing how they react with other potions.” He looked over the class, looking for a flicker of recognition; testing their potions in such a way was something Noble regularly did when marking their efforts to check their potency. And their safety, if he was letting them keep their brew to try. “There are a special class of potions for exactly this purpose,” he continued, “known as indicator solutions. These are potions that react in known, obvious ways when they come into contact with certain chemicals, most usually by changing colour.”

He reached for the brown bottles on his desk. “For our first activity, I’d like you to try out two simple indicators on page 259 of your textbook. Litmus solution,” he lifted up one of the brown glass bottles, “Can be used to test the pH of a sample….that is, how acidic or alkaline it is. On the desk, I have some known acids – including vinegar and lemon juice – and some baking soda, which is an alkali. Put a small sample of each into a test tube, and add a few drops of litmus solution…and see what happens to the colour.” Simple enough, right? The acids should turn red, and the alkalis should turn blue. He put the litmus solution at the front of the bench, before picking up one of the other brown bottles.

“Benedict’s solution detects the presence of glucose when heated. The sugar in this bowl, is currently made up of sucrose molecules. If I dissolve a spoonful in 20ml water in a test tube, add Benedict’s solution, and, using tongs to safely hold the tube, gently heat it over the flame of a burner…nothing will happen. However, if we add 5 drops of sucrase,” he pointed to a third bottle, “we can break the sucrose down into glucose and fructose. Then…since we now have glucose present, you should start to see the colour change." To yellow, hopefully. "I want you to try using different amounts of sugar… a half teaspoon, a teaspoon and a tablespoon what happens with the colour?” Hopefully they should see that the more sugar that they added, the more orange and then red the colour turned.

Hopefully they followed that. If not, it was in their textbooks. “If you have any questions…I’ll answer them now. Otherwise, you may begin.”

Ah-haaaaa, other potions... right right. Bernie was being quiet and careful today, so as not to lose too many points until she had the perfect dramatic opportunity to do so, but only if the class called for a dramatic interruption. She quickly scribbled everything the professor was scribbling, even opening her book to page two-hundred-and-fifty-nine to see what the heck he was on about.

Who--- um, who was Benedict, and why did they care about his solution? Was it Benedict Litmus??? Was that his name?

Huh?

Bernie scrambled to follow the directions of this and that and gathering the things and the tubes and the bottles and the bowl of sugar. She had her test tubes and all these brown bottles... now what? She checked her notes. He said to add a small sample of each acid and alkali to the tubes and then they could.... uh, put in the Benedict Litmus Solution.

So, she did step one: adding a bit of each acid to each test tube. So far, so good. Should she check on this sugar, maybe just a little? The first year tapped her lips with her index finger, then got an idea.

She'd just make sure this sugar was real before she got any further in her experiments. That's right. She sneakily licked the tip of her index finger and dabbed it into the bowl of sugar, then dabbed the sugar back on her lips. To someone NOT watching her closely, it'd just look like she was thinking about what to do next. She looked like that famous sculpture, you know, of the thinker? The thinking guy? That's right. Then she licked the sugar off her lips and grinned a little to herself.

Bernie had better repeat this sugar-tasting experiment, with a larger index-finger-ful of sugar. Mmmm yum.

Claudine began making her notes, jotting down as much as she could once Noble had agreed with the answers provided. Who wanted to make notes of incorrect things, right? There had been many provided but none as to what her professor was looking for. To be honest, in her mind, these indicator solutions sounded very interesting. She quickly wrote the two words on a new line, underlined it then began to make more notes.

Once that was done, she calmly began to carry out the instruction. First, she labelled three test tubes with the names of each (here, she inhaled the citrusy flavour just for fun… and because she enjoyed the scent)of the samples before a bit of each was poured into the corresponding tube. Once the Litmus Solution was secured in a dropper, Claudine added a few drops to each tube.

Now for the fun part.

She stood back, her eyes lighting up as the colours changed: red for the vinegar and lemon juice and blue for the baking soda.

Kaiser could only really shrug at Noble's response, then nod. He was... admittedly not following very well. A lot had been said even before his answer, and though Kaiser had reached a stage where he didn't struggle quite as much as he used to when it came to following lectures and the like, there had, of course, been recent setbacks. He did his best to look like he was keeping up, at least, and like he wasn't planning on testing potions on people any time soon. Though that last part was easy, given the fact it was true.

Though he had so far made a vague attempt at writing notes, they were all but useless, and Kaiser gave up on them as a bad job just as the first activity started. He threw down his quill, and pushed it and he parchment away.

Rubbing his forehead with the fingers of his right hand, Kaiser managed to look only slightly overwhelmed at the instructions they had been given. Not even started yet, and his mind had begun drifting. Concentration was a distant memory. Noble had spoken only moments ago, and his words had basically leaked out of Kaiser's ears without making any impression on his brain. He couldn't even remember the right page of the textbook he should have turned to.

Preferring not to draw attention to his predicament, Kaiser did what he knew best, and decided to look busy, and act natural. He went to get himself samples from each of the bottles, as well as some sugar, before returning to his seat. It was at this point that he realised he hadn't made a note of what each of the liquids were, but then it hardly mattered at this point. Kaiser cast a sideways glance at Eiji, who had taken the seat beside him, then back to his array of substances. It crossed his mind that he was probably about to look like a complete idiot to anyone paying close attention, but rather that than make it obvious he'd not been able to grasp those very simple instructions. Anyway, it wasn't like there were actual potions involved. Nothing was liable to go boom just yet.

Pushing the image of an exploding bowl of sugar to the back of his mind, Kaiser just went ahead and sort of... added drops of something to a tube of something else... and watched and waited... while nothing happened. Interesting.
