Default Potion Ingredient Hunting!

It was uncommonly warm this first weekend of term, and Javier decided to take advantage of nice weather and hold a little potions club meeting out in the grounds. Not that you had to be a member of the potions club to join in the fun! Any students were welcome. He thought it might be fun to take the kids out and look for potion ingredients on the grounds. Flowers, weeds, and grasses were all used in SOMETHING and he WAS running kind of low on his stores, so...why not?

Whistling happily to himself, Javier waited outside of his cabin for the students to arrive. He was lining up wooden buckets in a row in front of him for them to use as baskets of sorts.

This was mostly a nice excuse to get some sun while it lasted, but he had a few goals in mind for them too if they wanted to see how many different types of plants they could dig up. Now all he needed was the students!

OOC: If you are participating in this potions ingredient hunt please keep your RPs to THIS thread even if moving about the grounds! Thank you!

Aria had decided she wanted to be a part of this activity Professor Hernandez had planned. If anything, her body language screamed that she wanted to be here. Just look at her practically skipping her way over to the cabin and that radiant beam on her face. Yep, Ms. McLeod was a beacon of happiness today {and usually every day}.

"Professor! Hi, hi, Hi!" The Slytherin came to a halt a short distance from the man. "I can't wait to get started! And isn't this sunshine just wonderful?!" She twirled once, her face turned in the sky's direction. Oh yes. Sunshine was the BEST.

Jasper was not a member of Potions club. Nor did he pay attention to extracurricular activities that fell outside of the world of sports. BUT. With such nice weather, he was obviously spending the day hanging out outside. And as sociable as he was, when he saw people start to group up, he dribbled his football over to meet them.

"Professor H, think fast!" Jas called out, aiming the ball right at the Groundskeeper. Also. "Hey, Aria!" Because he was polite.

Potion Ingredient Hunting sounded fun. So Lisa Nam was on her way to be present and ready to find the missing ingredients. It was a puzzle and perhaps could turn into some friendly competition to which the youngest Nam never backed down from that. Besides, she needed to work on her mastery of potion. She was hungry for every morsel of knowledge she could scrounge up and devour.

It was a beautiful day. The sun was warming and there were few clouds in the sky as she walked through the Hogwarts Grounds. It was a perfect early autumn day. However, she knew this was all too fleeting and soon they’d find themselves with snow on the ground.

She spotted Professor Hernandez, Aria, and… She blinked several times. Jasper Botros with his football. Oh MERLIN. Act cool. Ummm. “Hi Professor! Lovely day…. Aria, hi,” she spoke and then turned to Jasper with the normal Lisa grin. “Heya Jasper! Whatcha doing? Wanna come on an adventure?

SUMMER FOREVER

Valentina wasn't a part of the potions club but she just needed an excuse to spend some time outside. Plus, it seemed like a super fun activity - something that she would enjoy for sure.

"Hello, professor. Aria. Jasper. Lisa." She smiled as she joined the little group, running a hand through her hair. "It's a lovely day, isn't it?"

Potions-related anything gave Cass a couple of very conflicted feelings. She didn't hate the class. It was because her mum was great at it, and the Stylinsons were great at it, and everyone close to her family and their mums were also probably great at it. She personally wasn't bad at it, but she wasn't great good. Above average wasn't excellent even if she had set her mind on going down the non-academic, Quidditch path like her dad.

Neither was she a member of the Potions club. The most appealing aspect of taking part in this potions ingredients hunt was the outdoor element of the activity. Cass missed summer more than anything, and soon enough there wouldn't be so much sun to enjoy. "Hi, sir. Hope there's space for one more," the Gryffindor saluted at the potions master.

Cass was more than pleased to see Jasper there, her U17 teammate. They had an eventful season just this summer, though it had been her last. The scouts have to fight over her soon to recruit her. They just have to. But anyway, she watched as Jasper tossed that football at Professor Hernandez' direction. Looked fun. What if they played some sport instead?

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

Because the weather was lovely today, Daniel decided to take a short rest near the lake and read for an hour or so. His gaze was drawn to a group of students and Professor Hernandez gathered in the distance as he strolled across the Grounds, his book nestled against his chest. Did they have class?! Had he mistaken a scheduled class for a break?! He'd miss the start of the class if he went back to get his potions book. But if he could- Merlin's Beard he didn't want to think about it, share a textbook with another student?. Yes, he could claim that he had mistakenly grabbed the wrong book!

His footsteps quickened as he approached the group, and when he arrived, he said a quick hello to the professor before heading to stand next to Lisa. "I forgot my textbook, I didn't realize we had class," he said quietly. He was confident that she would not make light of his blunder.

Maria had survived the first week of classes and she hadn't gotten lost too many times in the numerous castle corridors. It was something to celebrate and with the sunshine bright outside the little dark curly haired badger firstie headed out on the grounds to join in the potion ingredient hunt. In a cheerful mood Maria joined the assembling group with a wide excited beam "Hi professor Hernandez and everyone! Are we going into the forest to find ingredients to make a fun potion with?" Hopefully professor Hernandez had forgiven her for accidentally melting a large part of her desk in her first potions class. It had really not been her fault. It was the other boy sitting beside her that had knocked over her cauldron or tried to play a prank on her or something. She'd have to include that in her letter home later, hopefully daddy wouldn't get upset.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Ash was good with potions when she tried her best, but she wasn't naturally super good at it and it wasn't her favorite thing to do. So she didn't really go to the potions club. But... she was under the impression that she could pick some flowers and get some physical activity here. And Professor Hernandez was nice enough. "Hi." She smiled at her friends and the professor, made her presence known, etc. Then she stood to the side and waited for further developments. She wasn't quite in a socializing mood, but she was in a good mood and would be happy to talk to anyone who wanted to chat.

Potions and fun were not two words that you would find Atlas put together in the same sentence. It was by unfortunate accident that the Gryffindor even happened to be in this area on this day and he had already wandered too close to not be noticed ... though that did not stop him from trying to do so. Another unfortunate encounter in the form of his foot finding what felt like the only twig on the ground nearby, resulting in a loud SNAP that surely had drawn someone's attention his direction...and Atlas surrendered to his fate and reluctantly joined the growing group.

He hadn't really had any vendetta against the Potions Master before...and he still did not right now...but also...he had decided he did not like the man simply for the fact that his minor promotion was a reminder that Auntie June was no longer at Hogwarts. Quite hypocritical of himself, as per usual, considering he had been mad and bitter that she had become the SLYTHERIN head of house instead of GRYFFINDOR head of house...and it was still kind of a sore subject for him.

But, still, he did not like to see this man strutting around with the title either.

Bah humbug.

Hand slipping into the pockets of his robes, he meandered over to the first moderately familiar face he could see (which happened to be Valentina in this moment or else he likely would have slid up beside Lisa with the bonus satisfaction of it irritating Daniel) and offered her a humble greeting because just seeing her reminded him of the laundry room and suddenly there was a pressing question he just HAD to get off his chest. "Hey, is every pair red?"

Vera was here only for the reason that she had been outside and noticed people all start to heading in a singular direction. Naturally she NEEDED to know what everyone was up to, especially when she noticed someone else that was potentially her age, so the first year skipped her away after the others she'd seen. She just hoped whatever was going on it was OUTSIDE, because today really was lovely.

Wait. Was everyone going to see a Professor? Was there some type of extra class today or something? She nearly backtracked and ran away at that thought, worried about getting stuck doing MORE school, when the words of the other younger student caught her attention. Did she say Forest? As in... the Forbidden one? Color her interested, even with the combined 'potion ingredients'.

Vera made her way to stand next to the other first year, Maria."I bet the forest has TONS of good ingredients. We should definitely go in there. Are those the baskets we're using for gathering?" CAN WE GO NOW?

Violet had been a member of the Potions Club since her first year and was always up for anything potions-related. So she joined the group eagerly, ready to go. "Hi, Professor Hernandez, hi Ashley, everybody!"

Javier smiled at Aria as she practically bounced her way towards his hut, extra eager to get going. He was about to say hello when he heard someone yell out THINK FAST, and thank MERLIN the man still had good reflexes. He reached out and grabbed the football out of the air just before it hit his face. "Mister Botros, keep footballs on the GROUND, please," he said before tossing it back to him. They'd almost been down one Potions Master!

As Lisa and Valentina came up, he nodded in response to their question and grinned. "It IS a lovely day," he turned to Cassidy as she walked in and nodded. "Of course, join the group!" he said, waving for her to join their little crowd.

It was really amazing how the grumpy potions master could really transform if he had access to good ol' sunshine.

He had no idea Daniel thought they were doing a lesson - lucky for him they weren't - and he chuckled a little at Maria's question. "No, we're staying out of the forest. Just around the outskirts and the lake," he explained. He didn't want anyone getting any ideas now!

Ashley and Atlas both got nods of welcome as they joined the group - and of course he had no way of knowing Atlas felt he was STRUTTING around with the Slytherin Head of House title. Javier didn't STRUT. He power walked most places, actually. "No, Miss Thanatos, stay OUT of the forest...but yes, those are the buckets you can use to gather ingredients," he added in regards to her second question. This was going to turn into a battle of keeping kids rounded up and away from the forest boundaries, wasn't it?

"Hello Miss Blackthorne," he added with a smile to Violet, the last arrival, before he gathered to the front of the group.

"Alright everyone! Since it's such a beautiful day out, I thought it would be fun for us to get together to gather potions ingredients around the grounds. I think you'll be interested to find that a lot of the weeds, flowers, and grasses around the grounds are all thing we use commonly in potions. Take dandelions, for example," he said with a grin, pointing to a few that were growing around them.

"I'll be out here and since this isn't a graded activity or anything, you can come drop off your buckets whenever you're done. I'll make a pile for edible and inedible ingredients for you to put your findings in - but don't get any ideas about wandering off!" he added, specifically looking at those who'd asked about the forest. Don't get any ideas, kids! In fact, they didn't even have to actually gather ingredients if they wanted. What was he gonna do, take away house points? Of course not!

Think fast? Aria craned her neck REALLY fast at Jasper just in case he misaimed. Thankfully he did not. If that football happened to hit her in her flawless face… “Hello, Jasper! Nice aim you’ve got there.” Ah, it seemed that more students were showing up. Excellent! The more, the merrier! “Hello, hello, Lisa!’’ Ooh!!! Here was someone appreciative of this day. Aria beamed happily at Val. “It is! Makes you want to stay out for the rest of the day, doesn’t it?” Even Violet got a quick wave, the fifth year was in THAT good of a mood.

Hunting for ingredients was going to be a breeze and sheer fun! This Slytherin could hardly wait to get started. So… they were just free to grab a bucket and start their gathering? That seemed easy enough. Before anyone could blink twice, Aria had snagged one of the wooden buckets and was swinging it to and fro wildly. Best be careful not to get hit!

“Does anyone want to go hunting with me?’’ she called loudly and brightly in general.

"My bad, Sir," and yet, Jasper was smiling as he jogged over. Instead of catching the ball, he lifted his knee and juggled it a few times before then catching it. Showing off? Yes, yes he was. But in a charming sort of way. So when Lisa settled beside him, he tucked his football under his arm and offered her a warm grin. "I'm always down for an adventure." And he meant it.

Especially if said adventure included so many of his friends - like Gryffindors, Val and Cassie, who both received a nod in greeting. "Cass! We should get the crew together for a scrimmage on the pitch this week." He'd miss playing with the seventh years. They had such a good team going. It'd be a shame to let this school year pass by without getting some more play time in.

It was just as he had the thought that their Potion's professor started speaking. And Jas, far too distracted to have listened, missed every single word of it. Turning back to Lisa, he whispered, "What are we doing?" Heh.

One minute Maria had been standing alone while she waited for the potion ingredient hunt to get started, and the next minute another firstie girl had come up beside her. Smiling wide at the other girl in gryffindor robes Vera she beamed enthusiatically "Yes, yes I bet that too. Vera isn't it? I'm Maria, but you can call me Mia. The forest must have lots of interesting weeds, flowers and grasses and possibly some cute creatures too."

Maria was about to lean down to grab a bucket before for the ingredient hunt when Professor Hernandez cut in and made some rules clear for the activity. They were not allowed to go into the forest to look for ingredients. Oh well, that was dissapointing, but understandable she supposed. Turning to Vera again Maria asked "Vera can we be ingredient finding buddies? If we go down to the lake to look for weeds and algae then maybe we can get to see the giant squid."

Lisa smiled as Valentina joined the group. Aria got a nod in return of her greeting. She then turned to Professor Hernandez and grinned. Yes, it was a lovely day! And then there were more people! Cassidy was there. OH. She stared a little in awe of the girl because Lisa thought she was a GREAT Quidditch played. She was on Jasper’s team so she had seen her play in an ACTUAL match. She was brought back from her thoughts of fangirling when she saw Daniel sidle up next to her and lean over to whisper. Eyebrows raised, she wondered what he was about to say and then smirked when she heard him. “You’re secret’s safe with me, Daniel. We can share mine if we need it. ” She’d never throw him under the bus. They were friends.

Lisa looked to Jasper and smiled widely at him. “I know… adventures are the best… especially with a good partner in crime.” She brushed a strand of hair behind her ear before turning her gaze to the ever growing group. She saw a few others join and gave a wave to each of them that joined. Ash received a small smile. She would have talked to her but it seemed like she was busy in her own thoughts.

Oh? Was that Atlas standing on the other side of Valentina? Wait… did Atlas… have a crush on Valentina?? She wouldn’t blame him because Valentina was like SUPER PRETTY. But if he did, well, Merlin, that would be a second person that she’s liked that liked Valentina. The odds were perhaps not in her favour. The question… Red pair?? She looked at him confused at his question before giving Atlas a small smile and then turned her attention back to Professor Hernandez. Even though she was listening her mind was a million miles away.

It wasn’t until Jasper’s question brought her back to the present. “Say what?” she commented a little too loudly before looking at the buckets and replaying the words in her mind that the Professor had said. AH PROCURING THINGS! She leant towards the Hufflepuff to whisper. “We’re hunting for potion ingredients… mushrooms, plants, and flowers. And maybe hunting for some flowers for ourselves.

Now we’re they partnering up…. Or… doing this as a group challenge because… She had a few people that she’d be MORE THAN HAPPY to be partners WITH. Did she have to do the asking? Would this be like the dance? Mild panic set in.

*ahem*

Vera couldn't help the small pout that settled when Hernandez stated they would NOT be venturing into the forest today. She'd been hoping that rapid firing the question about the baskets would have been enough to distract the man into either not specifically stating they couldn't go or distracted him enough from her being one that had asked about the forest. One could not easily sneak away to where they shouldn't be if they were already under suspicion!! She sighed before going to collect her basket. "Yes sir, no forest."

The other first year got a smile at the introduction, and she offered her hand not now occupied with a basket in greeting. "Nice to meet you, Mia! Vera is my name but you can call me whatever you want." The name Vera itself did not have many short options, but she encouraged creativity. Her voice dropped a bit, especially since the Professor had already said NO to the forest. "I reaaaaally hope one day we're allowed in there. It would be so interesting to see what we could gather and find!" The allowed part was also optional, but she wouldn't state that until she knew what people could be trusted for sure.

The question of if they could pair up had Vera's head already nodding in agreement, even more emphatically when she mentioned the giant squid. "OOOOOH, YES. Let's do that!! Maybe one of the other creatures will come up close enough that we can see them too! Can you swim?" Y'know, just in case something tried to grab at them if they got TOO close.

"Ooohh." THANKS, LEES! Consider Jasper Amir Botros all caught up now. "Want to hunt together?" Jas ran a hand through his curls and shook them out, looking around at the others stood nearby himself and Lisa. "Should we start a group?" The more people the better, right?

... Unless people didn't want to hang out. That sounded super boring though. Finding ingredients would be WAAAAAAY more fun to do in a group. They could make a game out of it. First one to find seven mushrooms wins .... uh, something COOL!

He'd have to think on it.

Shame, Professor Hernandez. Cass would argue that balls shoudn't stay on the ground anyway. Sure, footballs were intended for kicking around but have you seen them fly across a field? The intensity of it! That's what the Gryffindor lived for. Alas, she shouldn't forget that this was a Potions club gathering and not one of the sports clubs. Though, there could be ways to incorporate sports fun into all of it if they really want that. Anyway. No use arguing when the purpose of this activity had already been laid out for them.

"I love that," Cass said, pointing at Jasper like brooo that idea is 10/10. "I'll have a chat with Autumn and Zaz about it. I bet they'd join." She had only mentioned the two other girls, mostly because they were the only three who had just finished their last season. Besides, until the next U17 results came out, they were still part of that team and Cass would strongly insist on that.


And the younger girl (Lisa) there? Cass caught her eye and, since the Gryffindor had no sense of awkward in her body, she gave the younger girl a smile and a wink as acknowledgment. Hi.

Suppose now was a good time to start the hunt, yeah? Cass chose to ride solo, unless a friend, or someone younger and in need of assistance approached. Not sure how she could provide that, honestly. She went for the easy ingredients to identify and the closest ones to her for now, so that would be flowers. Cass could appreciate flowers too, ya know?

The joy.

Of course it would be Violet Blackthorne to accept the offer. Aria spun around gracefully to face her housemate. "Sweet, sweet Violet!" She smiled broadly. It was a good day, and nothing was going to ruin it for her. Not even this seventh year whom Aria sometimes found oddly irritating though there wasn't an exact reason for her to feel this way.

"Sounds lovely! Where would you like us to start off? Shall we head in the direction of the Lake or would you rather somewhere else?" Aria had no preferences. The shrewd fifth year that Violet had volunteered to partner up for another reason: Caes. How she wished Caes was into purely guys so she could rub that in Violet's face. Alas...

Still.

That didn't mean that Aria wouldn't enjoy feeding Violet with some fibs about her brother's personal life. "You lead the way! My bucket and I will keep up!"

Overly perky, cheerful people always made Violet think they must be hiding something--who could always be that happy and nice for real? Maybe that was why she'd always found Aria unsettling to be around, or maybe it was just that Violet was used to being on her own after so many years alone with a group of eccentric adults as her only companions. Still, rather like a cat that won't leave someone alone when they sense they don't like cats, Violet found her self unable to resist seeking out Aria's company, maybe just to see if that cheerful facade might crack one day.

Violet had no problem looking for water plants, and there was always the chance they'd catch a glimpse of her friend, the Giant Squid, while they were there. "I've no objection to the Lake; let's go!" And with that, Violet picked up her bucket and headed off.

Potato, potato. It was still S T R U T T I N G.

Dealing with change had become difficult for the Gryffindor, which maaaaaaaaaaaaaaay have had something to do with his very first feast including the face of the headmaster melt away to reveal someone else and then his entire world turned upside down. Maybe.

Ahem.

What Professor Hernandez still had going for him was that he was still the Potions Master, so there was an undertone of familiarity at least. But, still, he was going to remain bitter and grumpy about the reminder that his aunt was no longer at Hogwarts and one of his safe places absent. He only had a few to begin with, you see.

Looking around as things unofficially but officially began, he nearly pointed out that it was too late to request they not get any ideas...when in fact the man had planted the idea himself in bringing it up. Atlas had sort of been tuning everything else out until that point and entirely missed that others had asked about the forest - he was having a very sporadic focus kind of day.

What he did focus on, however, was noticing Daniel Yoon (at last!). The great mysteries that would be Valentina's color of choice would just have to remain a mystery for now...because Atlas was shuffling his feet over towards the Hufflepuff with a bucket in either hand...and since he noticed Lisa was there as well, he supposed he ought to try and iron out the bluntness for her sake. With a couple of his elongated strides, Atlas had closed the little distance and just in time to hear another Hufflepuff ask about grouping up (the one who maybe should have had better aim with the football and...well...no. Atlas supposed it was a bit too much to wish bodily harm, even mildly, on someone else).

"Uh...I got two buckets."

Which was apparently how he was inviting himself into this collective.

"Absolutely." Val couldn't help but grin back at Aria with enthusiasm. The weather was pretty amazing though and she was going to try spending every second outside, if possible.

.. she couldn't help but raise her eyebrows slightly when Atlas made his way over to her, hoping he wouldn't mention the embarrassing laundry room incident. But of COURSE he did. "No, of course not. Why would I own every pair in the same colour, Atlas?" She lightly pinched his cheek before turning to look at the professor, her face brightening up immediately.

Oooooh. Tiiiime to go find some ingredients! Picking up a bucket, the blonde headed off, deciding to do this on her own.. unless someone wanted to team up with her. She didn't mind, really.
