A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician:
he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales
~Marie Curie

Within the laboratory, there are sixteen tables all pushed together to create two rows of eight. Each seating area is equipped with two stands and burners that adjust to fit your cauldron no matter what size it may be. This is where students can practice brewing any potions they wish. Along the walls there are shelves stocked with various potion equipments including flasks, funnels, phials, stirring rods. The Potions Storeroom down the corridor includes many common potions ingredients, along with extra cauldrons, textbooks, dragonhide gloves, protective goggles.

On the chalkboard at the front of the room are some general guidelines for you to observe while using this room:
  • Clean up your own mess. Your mother does NOT live here.
  • Be safe. If you don't know what to use a stirring rod for, then you probably shouldn't be brewing a potion unattended. Please refrain from causing any fires or explosions.
  • Do NOT use your schoolmates as your test subjects
  • Clean up after yourself. As I stated already, I am NOT your mother.
  • If you need assistance, please ask
  • Don't waste ingredients.
  • OOC: this isn't a class. This is an additional thread for freestyle RPing opportunities related to potion brewing. Feel free to PM/VM me if you'll require Professor Adara's assistance in the laboratory, otherwise we'll just assume you want independent potion brewing time.

One Amelia's favorite part of being Potions Mistress was the ability to experiment with new potion ideas and that the ingredients were provided by the school. Of course she wasn't one to waste ingredients willy-nilly; that would be completely irresponsible and she was anything but that at her mature age. She also didn't have a WHOLE lot of time to experiment, but the beginning of the term always seemed to lent itself to more spare time between lessons.

Goggles in place over her eyes, the dyed redhead had various ingredients spread all over her countertop and a book propped up that she was heavily concentrating on reading.

Emmie's favorite part of Hogwarts wasn't the dungeons since they were always cold, and she wasn't exactly the best potions brewer yet. It was evidenced by the big number of potions that had gone badly in class to say the least. Burns covered her arms still so mybe her auntie could teach her how to make a burn healing paste? Or even better to not mess up any more brews so that she wasn't called Emmie the potions wrecker in the halls behind her back by her peers.

Coming into the potions lab Emmie called out "Auntiee?" as she was startled by the big goggles that covered her aunt's eyes plus the slightly mad look about her. Was her aunt okay?

Amelia liked to think that in the year plus that she'd been Potions Mistress that the dungeons weren't the dark and dank place that they once used to be. While she couldn't do much about the lack of windows, she had enhanced the dungeon corridors by the potions laboratory and classroom with some brightly coloured artwork along with some heating charms in the actual laboratory. Although she supposed century and decade old training of equating dungeons with dark and dreary was hard habits to break.

She'd just added some powdered bicorn horn to the cauldron when she'd heard a familiar voice. "Emmeline. Lovely to see you, as always. How are you getting by with your second year?" Hard to believe she was a second year. Time just kept ticking.

Stirring her potion. She'd definitely forgotten in her interruption. Good thing this was just experimental.

As a surprise to literally no one (no, really, no one is surprised), Bronwen had fallen incredibly behind in her OWL studies. And she would have given up and asked for a preemptive resit next term, had it not been for her eldest cousin's encouragement. Though in all honesty, she was feeling way more capable during the pep talk than she was now that she was sat in front of her cauldron.

But it was too late. She was already mid-brew, and mid-magazine.

Magazine?

Oh yes, that's right. There was a 15 minute simmer wait period on this potion (she was working on the Volubilis without any rhyme or reason) and so she had brought herself some reading material to pass the time. As it was, she had found herself quite immersed in the who's who of gossip rags. It wasn't so much a hobby as it was an obsession. Being away from that world during the school term only made her that much more interested in what they had to say.

Her current favorite story was one following the infamous boy who would soon inherit WHiM and his girlfriend? Fiancé? Ex-fiancé? Bronwen found herself flipping to page 17 to read more.

Though he had been keeping up with studying for most subjects, Potions was one where Ezra was falling a bit behind. It was easy to put it off when there were others that he enjoyed far more. Not that he disliked it entirely, but it was a bit...boring most of the time. It was all following directions and waiting for things to happen a lot of the time, which made it easy for him to get distracted.

Not today though! Today he would review at least...well, at least one potion. The goal should probably be more than one, but he was trying to be realistic.

And he was gonna take it as a good sign that a friend was already in the lab when he entered. Maybe it wouldn't be so boring today after all!

"Hey Bronwen!" he said with a grin, immediately going to the station next to her to set his things down. "Whatcha reading?"

Bronwen lifted her head up when she heard her name, perking up almost immediately when she saw Ezra walking towards her station. "Hi, E-Z!" She ought to have enlisted his help with this potion nonsense from the beginning, so the universe was truly doing her a favor by bringing him here.

"WHiM!" she answered with an easy smile, lifting the magazine to show him its cover. "Magazines feel like the only true connection we have to the real world here." The lack of wifi was so sick and twisted, honestly. Unless Ezra had found another way to keep in the know? Ronnie was aaaalllll ears for it.

She was desperate.

"Are you here to brew?"

"Are you here to brew?"

His eyes scanned over the magazine quickly when she held it up. It was one that Ezra was somewhat familiar with. Or at least, he had obviously seen copies of them around when shopping and...he may or may not have picked one up on occasion. Sometimes the covers were compelling!!

"Guess so." Though, in his opinion, the stuff in magazines wasn't always true or real, but it was definitely a connection! "Anything good in there?" Something about an engagement, based on his brief glance over the cover? Though there were probably other things too.

"Yeah, though dunno what I'm brewing yet." He did not come in here with a plan in place, so he'd have to look through his textbook to find one that seemed doable. Which he probably should get to work on right now...buuut maybe after he found out more about what she was reading up on!

Bronwen wouldn't judge him if he did!!! She hadn't ever picked them up before this year though. Usually the mums did a good enough job of keeping them away from what the media had to say as they were practically all over the pages of those cheap magazines since the day they were born. And B loved preening for the paps, which only ever got her into trouble. So of course she let curiosity win her over once she could subscribe to all the magazines on her own without the mums knowing!!!

"Mm, nothing too juicy," she admitted with a disappointed sort of shrug. "I always love doing the quizzes though --" she flipped through the pages until she came across one. "Ooh, want to know what kind of kisser you are?" WHiM's stuff was way better than Witch Weekly. More scandalous.

B didn't care to brew either. To be quite honest, she couldn't even remember which potion she had chosen (it was the one on the page she had her textbook open to). So she was more than happy to continue talking about the magazine and not potions.

Nothing too juicy? That was a shame. He'd been hoping for something wild and crazy that would be an easy and fun distraction from potions practice.

But there was still hope! Sure, he'd come down here with the intention to actually get work done, but that didn't mean he had to actually follow through with it. Who could blame him if there were more interesting things than potions? It was the thought that counted, right?

Ezra did cast a brief glance at Bronwen's cauldron, wondering what potion she'd been working on, but the mention of quizzes didn't allow him to dwell on it for very long. Because! Perfect distraction found! Normally quizzes were not a good distraction, but these were the fun kind in a magazine, and so they were the exception.

"Sure, yeah, let's give it a go!" Even if the subject matter did make his face warm a little. "Have you taken it yet?" Maybe she could help him pick the right answers.

...were there right and wrong answers for this kind of quiz?
