Default Potions Lesson - Felix Felicis



While Javier generally liked to make his students guess the subject of the lesson before getting underway, he was making it very clear right off the bat this time. On the blackboard behind his desk at the front of the class, the following was written in all capital letters:

Quote:
LIQUID LUCK
On the desk in front of him were some ashwinder eggs in a dish, squill bulbs and Occamy eggshells, amongst other small ingredients for the potion. These were just for show - the ones they would be using later were all separated out into individual trays off to the side, as always.

He knew many of the students had probably heard of this potion before, and also probably had some opinions on it. That was exactly what he was hoping for, at least! It was a rather controversial potion, after all.

"Hello everyone," the potions master gave them a little nod of greeting as he opened the door and positioned himself behind the desk while waiting for the students to arrive.

OOC: hey hey hey! Time for potions! I'm opening this a little early so you guys have plenty of time to post your characters arriving. As always this is NOT your first IC lesson with Javier, so all your characters should be nice and familiar with his rules and teaching style at this point. Don't forget to brush up on the Potions Classroom Rules and SS Site Rules before posting. We'll move on in about 36ish hours! CLASS HAS STARTED! Please pretend your character was here this whole time!


CLASS PROGRESSION:

Mini Activity - The Great Felix Felicis Debate!
Question 1 - When it might be acceptable to use Felix Felicis? When would it NOT be ok?
Question 2 - What do you need to be careful of when brewing the potion or taking it?

Jude was… troubled. So troubled {and distracted}, he failed to notice the topic of today’s lesson. He quickly approached Hernandez the moment he laid eyes on the man. “Hi, Professor! I hope you’re well.” The Hufflepuff waited a beat then launched into the scenario he wanted to get into. “Um… about our last bit of homework… it um… got eaten… by an alpaca…” Yes. You heard that right! “Actually, the alpaca was Evan! One minute, he was standing there on two legs, no fur. You know, like a NORMAL human, but the next, he had four legs and fur and… well, alpaca Evan snatched the homework I asked him to check out of my hands AND HE ATE IT! I kid you not, Professor!’’

Like… Alpaca!Evan chewed that parchment as though it were doughnuts going out of style!

It was true!!! Gosh, where was that best friend of his?! He’d better not wander in here as an alpaca! Or maybe he should then Hernandez would see that Jude wasn’t lying. Also, the sixth year was worried about the other boy. One did not spontaneously combust into an alpaca normally.

Strolling into the lesson, his backpack hanging off one shoulder, it took Hooper a moment to actually spot the writing on the blackboard behind the professor’s desk. From their previous lessons, he was obviously aware that the lesson was going to be on Felix Felicis but the specifics still confused the Gryffindor.

“How are you today Professor? Feeling lucky are we?” A small smile on his lips now as he nodded towards the blackboard, his eyes only briefly skimming its contents.

Taking a seat at one of the desks, Hooper began taking out his potions textbook and listened as a sixth-year student (Jude) was talking to the Professor. “An Alpaca? No way. They don’t even like parchment!” He’d heard of the whole dog ate my homework excuse before but this one took the biscuit. “Do we even have Alpaca’s at Hogwarts? Where did it come from”. He wasn’t saying he didn’t believe Jude. He was simply saying…it sounded like a lie.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

"Hi, good afternoon." Ash walked into the potions classroom in a good mood, smiling and trailing a couple of bright-colored flowers. She came up behind Jude to ask the professor a few potions related questions, then stopped with a raised eyebrow. "What about Evan?" Her best friend turned into an alpaca??? She didn't think Jude would lie, so... she demanded to know more about this.

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

Dark circles were present under his eyes as he entered the potions classroom. He hadn't been getting much sleep lately, with how many hours he had been studying for his OWL exams later in the year. A tired yawn escaped him as he entered the potions classroom for yet another lesson. He hoped that the professor would not hand them out too much homework this time.

Speaking of which... He came to a halt next to a seat, turning to look at Jude. What was he talking about? Evan had become an alpaca? Was it one of the strange powers that a few of the students had developed? If that's the case, Evan sure received a bad deal.

Personally, he could walk on the walls and the ceilings. A useful trick for avoiding people on his way to the next lesson or when he spotted someone he didn't want to see.

He also might have performed some stupid jinxes on unsuspecting students who had not noticed him on the ceiling. Just little things like ripping their bags apart so their books would spill out. However, if somebody asked. He hadn't done it. There was one downside though, there always was. It didn't always work and sometimes objects would stick to his fingers instead.

He yawned again and lazily rubbed the sleep out of his eyes as he took a seat and read the text on the blackboard. Liquid Luck.

This should be an interesting lesson.

Luther entered the potions classroom trying to focus on keeping the glow in his hands as dim as possible. While walking toward one of the stations in front of the Professor's desk, he said "Hello, Professor." and saw the writing on the board. He thought, 'Isn't that the potion Dad wrote that it was a nightmare to prepare? Something felixis.' Then he heard Jude talking about an alpaca actually being a student and eating their homework. It sounded like a prank or a great story, either way, Luther decided to ask his questions later.

Now getting more accustomed to the bubbles, Lisa didn't mind speaking with them. She had grown to ignore them which made her confidence re-blossom. She was here. Ready to conquer all of her OWLS even with an uncontrollable amount of bubbles. Her eyes saw the ingredients on the desk and then the text on the board. Felix Felicis. "Hello Professor Hernandez. Do we get to keep a sample of the potion if we brew it correctly today?" she asked hopefully. Then she went to go find a seat. She did wave and smile to a few people that she knew in the class.

Maybe that could cure the bubbles?

"What about Evan, Jude?" she asked having only heard Ash's question which she repeated because she was equally a curious. She took the seat next to Daniel because she had so MANY questions to ask about his gift. She placed her notebook on the table and pulled out a different one that she kept in her hands. "So... do you have like 'spidey' senses too?"

Please ignore the bubbles that escaped.

What Evan had not been expecting whilst making his way to Potions, was to hear his own name mentioned a few times as he neared the door, and as he realized the topic of conversation his face burned a bit red as he entered the room - a sheepish smile towards Professor Hernandez. "I uh... Sorry, sir. I did do that. I'm not quite sure why it happened." And if he could stop it from happening again, he probably would. So if Professor Hernandez had any suggestions on that, the Ravenclaw was certainly all ears. He probably should have already gone to see Professor Mancini or his Head of House but... It had seemed there was a lot of quirky things afoot and he wouldn't want to be a bother. The hope had been it would just... Resolve itself.

He glanced at the other students, stifling a groan at the alpaca centric conversation, before following his best friend towards a work station, directing a question at Jude as he did so. "You think we're learning Felix Felicis to stop all the weirdness? Or.. maybe like a Peeves ward?" He was still on edge eating in the great hall. Would prefer to not smell like swamp water.

Before he'd moved along though, hearing Ash's question and concern, Ev paused to give her shoulder a small reassuring squeeze glancing over at Lisa as well to respond to them both. "Nothing to be concerned about." Uh... Hopefully. "Just... Some extra peculiarities. With apparently a warning to also hold onto your homework." Oops?

Felix Felicis

Now that was an interesting…and complicated potion. And apparently the topic of today’s potions lesson. “Good day, Professor,” Raj greeted the man as entered more fully into the classroom with his satchel slung over his shoulder, heading to an empty workstation. Remembering what had happened in his last class, he held out a hand to check for rain drops as he set his stuff down on the work surface, relieved when he didn’t feel anything.

So far so good…he mused to himself, briefly looking up at the ceiling on the look out for surprises before setting out his cauldron, parchment and quills to be ready. Hopefully all would be good as he didn't need excess water in his potions work.

That was intriguing.

Kayla had the same question as Lisa about whether they would get to keep some after the lesson, so she was eager to hear Professor Hernandez's answer to that. She wasn't sure whether such a thing would be a good idea, considering all the risky factors that could occur with a group of magical students. But then again, there were much worse and riskier potions. And who wouldn't mind a bit of luck every now and again?

"Hello, Professor," she greeted him before finding herself a seat near Lisa and Daniel.

With the help from Lia, Tadhg was starting to get a little bit hang of his powers, although there were times he couldn't control it and just disappeared. Although he was visible for now and was ready for one of his favorite lessons. Walking into the potions dungeon he looked around and nodded at the Professor. " Hello Professor, hope you're well." Although as he said this he disappeared as he walked towards Ash and Evan. "Hey Ash and Evan." Although he blended in with everything, you could see he was there due to him taking out his things.


Looking down he let out a groan, as he noticed he was invisible once again as some would say. "Oh come on, not again! I'm so sorry Professor and everyone, sometimes I can control it sonetimes it comes and goes!" Although he didn't want to go all lesson like this, hopefully it'll wear off maybe just maybe.

]Bella entered the potions classroom with her potions supplies and textbooks stuffed into her backpack. She was ready for a great lesson with her HoH unless her annoying 'power' made things difficult. Butterflies were pretty to look at, but she was getting tired of them showing up in swarms around her too often for her liking. Pushing some dark strands of hair out of her blue eyes she beamed her best at her professor and HoH after she had read the text on the blackboard. "Hello Professor Hernandez, what an interesting potion you've selected today." And a difficult one too that could have disatorous consquences if brewed incorrectly. Bella was aware of the talk about Evan turning into an alpaca, and saw Tadgh slip in and out of visibility as walked over to claim an empty desk. At least her butterflies didn't hurt anybody.

Keighley was in her own little world lately. A world of sunshine and flowers. Almost literally. At least in the sense of flowers, her bright mood had colorful flowers growing in footsteps. Her blonde hair had flowers braided through it which was becoming more common for her.

Entering the room, a bright smile on her face. "Hello Professor! How are you today?" Having a wonderful like she was she hoped. "Juuuuude!" She giggled taking a shot at a work station near him just in case she needed his help. "Hi, Evan.. how are you feeling?" He looked like he was okay? At least he wasn't an alpaca at the moment, right? Wiggle fingers to everyone else too cause she was in a great mood!

Oooooh! They were going to be brewing Liquid Luck! Keigh set her things down and turned her attention to setting up her station, beautiful flowers springing up here and there as she touched things.

Well that was...certainly an interesting excuse that Javier had never heard before. Not the first thing he had expected to hear as kids started entering the classroom either. He just stared at Jude for a moment and blinked a few times, baffled at what to say.

"He...what?" he asked in confusion.

"No, there are no alpacas at Hogwarts,"
he assured him.

Javier was going to say good morning to Ashley as well when he noticed...the flowers behind her. Right. He'd forgotten about that. Hmmm, maybe Jude's story about the alpaca WASN'T as far fetched as he had assumed...there had been so many weird things happening to the kids lately...

Javier smiled and nodded at Daniel as he walked in. He could tell the Hufflepuff was tired, though, so he didn't try to engage in conversation.

Javier had to admit - HE wanted to know about Evan now too. He frowned a little when he saw bubbles escape from Lisa's mouth as she talked - poor kid - but then chuckled a little at her question and shook his head.

"No, unfortunately not. The real potion takes far longer to brew than the time we have in one class period," he explained. Also, he wasn't going to be setting the kids loose with liquid luck in the castle - ESPECIALLY if they were turning into alpacas and whatnot. That was just ASKING for a disaster and for the Ministry to come to his hut with an arrest warrant for child endangerment, he was sure of it!

Ah, the man of the hour.

Javier raised an eyebrow as Evan explained what had happened - as someone who had one been charmed to be a SEAL, he could empathize with the boy. "That's, er, quite alright Mister Nam. I won't hold it against Jude," he assured him before gesturing at him to take a seat. "How are you feeling now?" he asked.

He may have lived in South America for a time but he was NOT prepared to take care of any alpacas today. Just saying.

Looking down he let out a groan, as he noticed he was invisible once again as some would say. "Oh come on, not again! I'm so sorry Professor and everyone, sometimes I can control it sonetimes it comes and goes!" Although he didn't want to go all lesson like this, hopefully it'll wear off maybe just maybe.
Oh Merlin's BEARD.

Keeping the students on track today was going to be nearly impossible, wasn't it?!

Javier watched in horror shock as Tadhg literally just...disappeared right in front of him, but he could see his books and things moving as he talked.

"Ok, it's fine just, uh...move your things around every so often so I know you're still with us," he said. Not that he though the Slytherin would up and leave the lesson randomly, but...it would make HIM feel better to know he was still there, at least...

Javier HAD been scouring his books when he heard about the weird happenings in the school looking for possibly potions or antidotes he could use to help the kids, with no success. Maybe he needed to ramp up his efforts a bit...

Bella was aware of the talk about Evan turning into an alpaca, and saw Tadgh slip in and out of visibility as walked over to claim an empty desk. At least her butterflies didn't hurt anybody.
"That was the idea," Javier said with a grin to Bella as she walked in.

Entering the room, a bright smile on her face. "Hello Professor! How are you today?" Having a wonderful like she was she hoped. "Juuuuude!" She giggled taking a shot at a work station near him just in case she needed his help. "Hi, Evan.. how are you feeling?" He looked like he was okay? At least he wasn't an alpaca at the moment, right? Wiggle fingers to everyone else too cause she was in a great mood!

Oooooh! They were going to be brewing Liquid Luck! Keigh set her things down and turned her attention to setting up her station, beautiful flowers springing up here and there as she touched things.
Oh dear, another student with...flowers. He hoped no one had any severe allergies, being confined in this room with all that pollen...

"Hello Miss Anders," Javier smiled at her as she sat down. With that, Javier noted that it was time to begin, so he waved his wand and shut the door, signalling that it was time to begin.

"Good day, class. Now, first things first - I am well aware that some of your classmates are experiencing some...strange symptoms. I just ask that you please do your best to focus on the lesson at hand," he began. Butterflies, bubbles, invisible children, alpacas - it was every teacher's nightmare. "Most important rule, however, is that if you feel at any time your...ailments are making you sick or you don't feel well, PLEASE speak up and come talk to me. Your safety comes first," he added. He wasn't a healer, but he had no qualms about them missing lesson time to go to the healer even on a normal day.

"Now before we begin the brewing portion of the lesson, as I know MANY of you are eager to get to," he paused with a grin. "I have a question I want you all to think about. Is Felix Felicis an ethical potion to brew and use? As you can recall from your previous lessons, sometimes potion brewing and the usage of said potions can raise moral dilemmas, and this potion in particular can be the center of hot debate at times."

"For those of you who do NOT know what Felix Felicis is - another name for it is Liquid Luck," he paused to gesture at the blackboard behind him. "A small dose gives the drinker excellent luck for a short amount of time. Anything they attempt to achieve will be met with success, even if it's not in the manner in which they expected. I truly do mean just about anything. Exams, Quidditch matches, putting money in the stock market, asking out the girl of your dreams...these are just a few examples. You can see where there might be some moral issues with using this potion for personal gain. The most famous use of this, naturally, is Harry Potter's use of it during his sixth year at Hogwarts, where he was able to extract a memory from Horace Slughorn about Horcruxes to aid him in his fight against Voldemort, which many argue is a perfectly good and reasonable use of this potion."

"So I ask you this - is Felix Felicis an ethical potion to brew and use? If you think there is no problem with it at all, please stand and head to the BACK of the classroom," he instructed. "If you feel Felix Felicis is immoral to use and shouldn't be taught or brewed, please come to the front of the class. You MUST pick a side, and you MUST state your reasoning why you picked that side when you stand up," he added. "We will go one at a time, starting on this end," he explained before gesturing to the first student in the row, giving them to OK to begin the activity.

OOC: Ok, you heard the man! Pick a side on the Felix Felicis debate - and as he said, you MUST pick a side, no in between gray area here for the moment at least. You will have at least 36 hours to complete this bit before we move on. If you have any questions, please let me know!

So…

Jude hadn’t expected anyone to be paying attention to him but Hernandez. Though he supposed that hearing a fellow student had turned into an alpaca would make everyone interested. “Exactly as I said, Professor,’’ he remarked, bobbing his head earnestly. Jude frankly did not care if anyone believed him; the only one that mattered was Hernandez. He shrugged at Hooper. “This one did.” The sixth year really didn’t want to draw more attention to Evan but he figured that others needed to be warned that there might be more students bursting into alpacas. Or a variety of creatures. “He turned into an alpaca for some reason.” That should answer Ash, Daniel and Lisa.

Spotting Luther, he gave him a little wave and a reassuring smile. He didn’t want to upset the guy unnecessarily about strange happenings in his very first year, yeah? And THERE was Evan! See?! Words that backed Jude up directly from the horse’s… No, alpaca’s Ravenclaw’s mouth. A grateful look was thrown to the other boy before they headed off to workstations. Naturally, he took one next to Evan. “Are you okay?” Jude gave the seventh year a concerned look. It seemed that he spent all his Hogwarts life worrying over the seventh year. “Not gonna chew up my notes today, are you? I probably am going to start walking around with carrots and apples for you if this is going to be a thing.” He bit back a chuckle and busied himself retrieving his ink and parchment. There was a soft snort from him. “Merlin, I hope so! That Poltergeist is driving me crazy.” Jude watched all the happening around him warily; they were anything he hadn’t seen before. Most notably was Keigh’s flowers. “Heeey, little sister!’’ He gave her his brightest smile. His best friend and younger sister on either side of him today? Perfect!

The Hufflepuff eyed the butterflies. Jude wasn’t even sure he had brought those butterflies along or someone else had. Because yes, he had come to realise that at times there were quite a bit of butterflies about him and they appeared for no reason, especially indoors. His gaze shifted to Evan a bit before darting back to Hernandez. When the man had asked ‘asking out the girl of your dreams’, his mind had immediately turned ‘girl’ into ‘guy’. Of course he was thinking of Evan and of course he immediately felt super guilty because of Davet. He sighed quietly. There would be no end to these raging feelings of his.

Jude raised his hand. “I would say it is immoral to use in general or in most situations but not to be taught about. It’s just not fair to have anything to go your way, no matter how much you want it to. What becomes of the person or persons involved in the scenario of you consuming the Potion? What if they too wanted the scenario to go their way, but weren’t given a proper chance for that to happen because they didn’t consume the Potion? So yes, I see its use as being immoral.” As a Hufflepuff, fairness was important to him. With that, the sixth year headed for the front of the class.

Luther waved to Jude and smiled back. He definitely seemed relieved at seeing the Ravenclaw (Evan) and Luther thought 'That must be Evan, I wonder what it feels like to be an animal. Maybe I should ask him. Yeah, I will ask him after the class.' The class was filled with students who seemed to be unwilling victims of Peeves hijinks.

SPOILER!!: Professor Hernandez

After listening to Professor Hernandez's explanation and question, Luther thought for a while. 'It would give an unfair advantage when used in events like exams or matches. However, it is magic, it is not good or bad.'

Deciding on his side, Luther stood up and said "Professor, I believe that while it might definitely and easily be abused, Felix Felicis is still just a product of magic. And magic itself cannot be immoral. The magical person and their intentions may be as immoral or moral as possible but I don't think any product of magic, thus producing and using them, can be automatically immoral. Also, moral rules are never definite, as we can see in the class, so who is to say the purpose of usage was immoral? After all, a cheetah is an enemy for the antelope but a hero for its cubs." After stating his justification, Luther walked towards the back of the class, his hands shining as bright as they can since he lost focus.

An Alpaca? Surely Jude was joking, yes? Evan couldn’t possibly have been..

My brother’s a—?” Speaking of said brother, he entered and she firmly shut her mouth but not before a stream of bubbles escaped. Wow.. The bubbles were not subtle. At her brother’s comment, she clutched her notebook closer to her chest and just STARED at him peculiarly. “Uh… okay…” That was bizarre.

Professor Hernandez’s response to her question was what she had anticipated but still she was a little deflated by it. However, it was probably the smarter thing not to have kids running around with weird powers and a potion that made things work out in their favour. Aw bummer, she thought but nodded at his response. “Understood… I was a little hopeful that it could work as an antidote…” She offered him a smile.

She waved to Kayla who sat near her and Daniel. As she looked over to her, she couldn’t help but look closer at Daniel and saw the dark circles. Merlin. He looked awful. Maybe she’d fish out the concealers and… Well the lesson had began and she’d have to offer it to him after this lesson. She listened intently at the part when he mentioned what could be achieved with the potion. Asking out the girl or guy you wanted… Lisa could easily see through these illustrations just how dangerous this potion could be if it got into the wrong hands.

OOH! A debate on the morals of the potion. An interesting twist to the lesson! She liked this. Where did she stand on this mattter? Well… She personally thought it was immoral but hearing Jude take that stance, Lisa OBVIOUSLY had to play devil’s advocate. So she headed to the back of the classroom with a smug smile on her lips. She squared her shoulders, lifting her chin up higher. Time for the performance. “I think it’s perfectly moral to teach, brew, and use Felix Felicis. Like my esteemed colleague…” Uhh what was the first year’s name…? “Mr Starriver mentioned previously, I also have to agree that it’s not the potion that makes the choice.” She paused, y’know for the dramatic effect. “It’s the user. With great power comes great responsibility.” She did look to Daniel. “Should we remove the use of wands because they can cause harm? No, that’d be silly. We can teach about the benefits, pitfalls, and consequences that occur because of a user’s actions.

Yes, the bubbles did make her performance seem even more riddikulus.

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Ash nodded as Evan squeezed her shoulder. "If... if you say so." But she'd be watching him whenever she could! She preferred Evan as a person and not as an alpaca. She took a seat near where Jude, Keighley, and Evan were, but slightly behind them. She looked around for Tadhg at the sound of his voice, but couldn't see him. She listened along, wondering if she could go to the hospital wing for reasons other than flowers coming from her. See, she'd already gotten that checked out, and was just told that it didn't seem to be a problem and there was nothing anyone could do. She was much more concerned about her constant tiredness and feeling sick all the time. She had to be excused from this class a few weeks ago, because she just felt so bad. Today seemed to be fine though. She felt great.

"I think that using felix felicis is unethical, because it affects other people as well, 'persuading' them to do what you want. Like tell you information or go on a date with you. We're not allowed to use the imperius curse on each other, and this isn't that far from that, in my opinion." She hesitated, then went on. "However, just because it's unethical doesn't mean I never support using it. Like when harry potter got information on Voldemort. It wasn't ethical really, but it was justified regardless." She went to stand in the front.

No Alpacas at Hogwarts? Huh. Then maybe Evan did turn into one. It didn’t make too much difference to him except that he sort of wanted to pet one. Hooper watched carefully as Jude spotted Evan but didn’t butt in and interrupt the panic that he seemed to be in. With that not lasting, Hooper decided to focus on the lesson rather than the Llama Alpaca drama.

Taking pause for a second, Hooper really had to think about the question before putting his hand up to answer. “Honestly professor, that potion sounds super siiick! I mean, I know people have said that if you use it in certain situations, it can be frowned upon but if everyone uses it, doesn’t that cancel everything out? Has like, everyone playing in a quidditch game taken it then played? Is one person more lucky? Because both teams can’t win”. Now that would be a super cool potions experiment.

Hearing his name, Evan had turned around to offer greeting but.. while he believed he heard Tadhg's voice, he couldn't spot him, so instead his greeting sounded more like a question. "Hello?" Keighley's was a little less confused as she was tangible on the other side of Jude. Ev gave a small smile and an inclinaton of his head her direction. "I'm fine now. Thanks."

A sheepish smile again at the questioning of if he would be chewing notes, and the only honest answer the Ravenclaw could give... was a shrug of his shoulders. "I can't make any promises." But for the sake of the lesson, hopefully not. He was sure all of the odd magical happenings were distracting and driving the poor Professor's mad. Which was also why he didn't offer any other commentary regarding the poltergeist or in response to any of the other comments regarding his unfortunate woolly problem, other than to assure Professor Hernandez at his question. "I feel fine now, sir. Thank you." It did happen rather spontaneously and he'd yet to notice any proceeding patterns but... he felt perfectly normal now and was hoping for that to be the case through the lesson.

Which was off to a rather interesting start. They were talking morals today in Potions?

Considering the questions, Evan was glad to be going a little later to hear the points people made. While the first year's observation that magic itself could not be immoral (something he'd often had to grapple with his early years) was correct, he still didn't believe in Liquid Luck being a normal standard of curriculum. When it came to his turn, Evan stood and made his way towards the front of the class. "I do agree with some of the points the other side made, that magic in itself cannot be immoral, as the immorality would have more to do with the intentions of the user. However, I don't think that means that we shouldn't well... censor I suppose, what is taught in schools. By the some logic of morality, the three Unforgivable Curses are not in of themselves immoral, but we shouldn't learn about those either." He refrained from pointing out as well, that had censorship been more adhered to in the first place... Historically Harry Potter might never have needed to use the Felix Felicis.

Yes…strange symptoms indeed.

Rajesh was keeping an eye out for any sign his own was gonna act up, debating casting the spell he learned from Professor Madigan just in case. However, there seemed to be another debate that was going to have more of an impact on the class right off the bat…whether felix felicis was something that should be taught or something that wasn’t fair and ethical. Listening to what Professor Hernandez had to say, as well as what his classmates brought up before he could make his own decision, the Ravenclaw’s gaze went to both sides of the room.

He was caught in between.

He felt it was an okay potion in some instances, in moderation, for the small things. Keeping self from injury, or helping a cause like Potter and his friends was one thing. But on the other side of the matter, Raj wasn’t sure it was all right for something that mattered a bit more or for personal gain, like winning a quidditch match where it affected both teams and future matches. But the professor had said that they HAD to take a side. No such sitting on the fence like the currently was.

It seemed like he was heading to the front with Lisa and Ash. “While it has pitfalls and should have limitations…I don’t feel its completely immoral and not something to learn.” he answered, taking a stand beside the older Ravenclaw.

Disappointing that they wouldn't get their own vial of it, but also understandable. Especially considering the turn the beginning of the class took with this first question.

Kayla was...torn. Neither side really sat well with her, with the extremes of the either never immoral or always immoral to use the Liquid Luck potion. Life was more complicated than that. But she supposed if they weren't forced to temporarily pick a side within the classroom setting, they might all choose the same side of "it's complicated," considering they all had good reasons for each side so far. And perhaps that defeated the purpose of the exercise, if there was no debate.

So...it wasn't easy, but finally she went to the back of the room. "I don't think there are no problems with this potion," she said. "However, I also don't think that just because it can be used for nefarious purposes, that it means it shouldn't ever be taught. In the same way that we have defense classes to protect ourselves from the dark arts and other magic that can do harm, we should also be able to learn about potions that can be used for ethical and unethical reasons, in order to prepare ourselves to deal with them if we need to."

They were having a debate about wheter it was moral or immoral to brew liquid luck. Bella considered silently, and listened to the others points as student after student around her filtered to the back or front of the classroom depending on their views. Raising her hand as she stood up Bella waited until she had Prof Hernandez full attention before sharing her view. "I agree with Kayla and Lisa. I don't think it's immoral to brew or use liquid luck. It's the user of the potion that decides what the purpose of the potion will be if its for a little good fun or something more sinister, and we need to learn how to brew potions of all kinds and to handle the consequences of using potions both in school and out in the world. " She then walked over to join Lisa and Kayla in the back of the room. Everything always effected other people the question was if it was for good or bad.

Waving his wand so he could be seen my the Professor and everyone else around him he bit his lip in thought, what did he think about this? He could see both sides of the situation but he truly believed that it should be taught and he had his reasons and was about to say it. Raising his hand with his wand still in his hand he cleared his throat. Although he inew a lot of people were going to agree or disagree but it didn't mean they all couldn't be friends based on certain beliefs.

" I think it should be taught Professor, I mean yeah it can be used unfairly and poorly, but that's with almost anything and everything that's out there sir, are you going to banned the Polyjuice Potion because you turn into someone you're not or the Deaught of Living Death cause it puts someone in a death like sleep? No it would be unethical to banned something cause I believe if it's banned more are going to be curious and try it anyways. If we were to banned wand cause of people using them evilly how would we truly the greatest of magic around us? Sorry for the rant sir, just trying to voice my opinion on the issue." With that being said, he walked towards the back of the classroom.

Jude knew how much she looked up to him, right?

So when the lesson began and Professor Hernandez started to speak all was well. Keighley listened as she always did, jotting down notes on her parchment which wasn't anything new from her either. What was new however was the look on the fourth years face when they were asked to pick a side of the room to stand on depending upon how they answered this question. Is Felix Felicis an ethical potion to brew and use.

Why did they have to pick a side? She didn't want to do that. Being in a neutral position sounded better to her. There were pros and cons to this potion as there were pros and cons to pretty much everything in life. It all depended on how it was looked at but more importantly it came down to the one using it. Keigh crinkled up her nose in thought, slowly raising her hand so she could give her answer. "It's not a potion I myself would see me using but.. I don't see an issue with it being taught. Whether it's learned under a watchful eye of a professor or figured out on ones own, if someone wants to learn it badly enough they will find a way." Just saying. It's the truth. Not teaching something at Hogwarts doesn't make it unlearnable. "As for it being used.. well.. I guess that would depend on what it's being used for. Not everyone's intentions for it may be bad." Sorry Jude. Getting to her feet, she slowly made her way to the back of the room to join the others standing there, blue eyes downcast. Surely she had let her big brother down by not siding with him.
