Sitting alone in his classroom, Herakles awaited for his students to arrive. He had something quite interesting in store for them today.. Or at least, interesting to him. He was going to teach his students how to make a Calming Draught. He had brewed one up for himself not too long ago, to be totally honest. Coming to this new school was quite something and he was in a bit of a tizzy. Though it was only the second week of school, he knew he had some rather jittery students who may or may not want to use this to their advantage...

Humming quietly to himself, he handwrote the ingredients of his potion on to the blackboard, waiting for students to file in. He always preferred using his hands for everything, using magic only if he was in a rush or felt lazy.

Agrippa
Belladonna
Fairy Wings
Lovage
Moly
Moondew


Perfect.

Setting down the chalk and brushing the dust off his hands, Herakles turned from his post to see students had already begun to file in.

Ivan shuffled into class with a horde of other students. He quietly took a seat in the back row. Naturally, nobody sat in the desks directly next to or in front of him. He smiled cheerfully. He was slightly looking forward to potions class, as long as they weren't going to learn anything dull.

He noticed there were some ingredients listed on the blackboard behind the teacher. He wondered what potion they were for. All around him, students were talking and gossiping with one another excitedly. He wasnt terribly lonely or upset at his lack of friends like most would be. He had become used to being shunned. Instead, he fantasized about all the horrible things he could do to these people.

"Geia sas, ladies and gentlemen."
He heard the teacher say and the room calmed down a bit.

He looked at his new teacher. He looked Greek. It wasnt often he met Greek people. This would be a good year.

Felicia was visibly nervous as she entered the classroom approximately five minutes late. Potions was easily her worst subject. She brought her thumb to her mouth, biting on the nail anxiously. She looked around for an open seat, the only one left open being right up in front. She was already late, and now she had to walk to the front of the class in a walk of shame? She suddenly felt as if she were in a nightmare.

Taking her seat, she looked around the room, seeing Ivan far behind her, she smiled shakily. She didn't recognize anyone else in the room. She then ventured a look over to the chalk board. Seeing one of the ingredients to today's potion being fairy wings, she stifled a gasp. She was not comfortable with the idea of ripping the wings off a fairy. She hoped desperately she wouldn't have to, though she still didn't like the idea of using wings someone else had ripped off a fairy.

Her thoughts were going at a mile a minute, and she chewed on her lip in anxiety. Hopefully Professor Karpusi would go easy on her, and not give her too hard of a time as last year's Potion's Master had.

Giving his students a moment to take their seats, he turned back to the board, writing his name in the top left corner.

Professor Karpusi
26
Greece
Ravenclaw


Setting down his chalk and rubbing his hands together to get the dust off, he turned back to his students, seeing they all found a seat. As he was about to take a seat, a few stragglers came in. Paying them no mind, he turned to the book cupboard.

"Welcome, everyone. It is good to see you all here today. As some of you may have heard, there was going to be a new potions teacher.. Professor Adnan was called away and he won't return for an indefinite amount of time. So until then, I have been appointed. My Ravenclaws in the room have already met me; I have also been made the head of house." As he spoke, Herakles had carried books to each of his students, setting them in front of them.

"Now, please open your books to page 394 and someone tell me what we're going to be making today"

As soon as the professor began speaking, Felicia was starstruck, and perhaps sitting all the way at the front wouldn't be so bad after all. As he placed the book in front of her, she stared at him for a moment with glassy eyes before opening to the page almost immediately, in an attempt to impress the teacher. She raised her hand high, hoping to be called on, a light blush across her cheeks.

Professor Karpusi was only eleven years older than her. After her next birthday when she turned 16, she would be of legal consenting age, and perhaps she stood a chance with the professor. Her own father was fifteen years older than her mother, so the age difference wasn't strange to her at all.

Ugh! She was so late! Hurrying into the dungeons for potions class, Emie bumped and shoved her way through students, eventually coming to class. Seeing Felicia in the front, she rolled her eyes, taking the very last seat right next to her. Just as she sat down, a book was placed in front of her. Looking up at the teacher with the unfamiliar accent, her jaw almost fell open.

He was beautiful.

Clearing her throat and brushing down any stray hairs on her head with her fingers, Emie watched the professor walk around the room. Looking beside her, she noticed Felicia also had that same exact look. A pout quickly graced her features as she turned her book to the proper page. Without skipping a beat, both she and the Italian next to her raised their hands at the same time.

"Pick me!", she thought to herself, so loud it was almost a vocal exclamation.

No sooner than when the words left his mouth, two students already raised their hands to answer. Chuckling to himself as he returned to the front of the room, he saw it was his two late students who wanted to give the answer.

"Yes, agapi̱tós (dear)?", he asked, pointing towards Felicia. In the back of his mind he hoped this wasn't a mistake; she seemed liable to pass out over the fact he was just merely speaking to her. Keeping his lazy smile on his face though, he waited for her answer.

He called on me! Felicia thought, her heartbeat suddenly pounding in her head. For a moment, she forgot her answer, the way he was smiling at her was tantilizing. She stared, open mouthed for a few short seconds before stuttering, "C-Calming Draught?" It was more of another question than an answer to his question, but she was suddenly very unsure of herself. She looked down in the book to confirm before repeating more assuredly. "Yes. Calming Draught."

She looked over to the girl who had been later that her, a proud look on her face, as she'd beaten her for the professor's attentions.

Francis knocked on the door of the classroom, and slowly walked in. He smiled at Herakles and walked over to him. "Sorry to interrupt," he said on his way to the front of the room. He flash an apologetic look at the students before turning to the Greek man.

"I was wondering if you had any extra Veela hair? You see, I was going to show my students something about cores of wands, because they were interested and I thought why not, but I noticed I was all out. If you have any extra I would be forever greatful," the Frenchman said cheerfully, voice quiet in attempts to keep the students from listening in.

Shooting a glare towards Felicia as she answered the question, Emie crossed her arms and sat back in her chair. Who cares if Professor Karpusi called on her first..She was better at potions than Felicia was. If it wasn't for Emie, she wouldn't even pass! Muttering curses to herself, she almost didn't even notice the Transfiguration teacher come in.

Trying to listen to what he said, she only heard something about Veela hair. Shrugging it off and sitting back, she thumbed through the steps of making a Calming Draught. She was going to make the best one in the class and she was going to win the affections of Professor Karpusi and leave Felicia in the dust.

"Yes, that is correct agapitos, thank you." As he was about to start, once more, there was a minor interruption. Seeing as it was another teacher, he would let this one slide.

"Veela hair?", he murmured back. Taking a moment to think, a lightbulb went off in his head.

"Ah, yes, Veela hair.. Right over here, Professor.", Herakles said with his trademark smile. Going to his stores, he found the vial with hairs in it.

"Everyone, Professor Bonnefoy here needs Veela hairs..Can anyone tell me what properties they hold for potions?", he asked, handing the vial to the Frenchman.

Felicia plainly ignored Emie's show of disdain for her. She heard the grumbles, and felt the girl's crystalline eyes on her. She just smiled. She'd been called on first by their devastatingly attractive teacher.

As professor Bonnefoy stepped in, Felicia shivered. She'd heard stories about him from her mother about how he was when he had been a student. She did her best to ignore him, as well. There was something about the way he spoke that grated on her nerves. Perhaps it was just the French accent. She found it hard to understand.

And then the Potions Master asked another question. She stared at Professor Karpusi. Veela hair had no uses in potions. Surely he knew that, and was just testing them. She slowly rose her hand, positive he wouldn't call on her twice in a row, though she was purely confident with this answer. She bit her lip,

Veela hair? Oh that was so easy! Before the professor could pick anyone, she just had to say something. Raising her hand, she spoke.

"Trick question. Veela hairs have no qualities for potion making whatsoever. They aren't exactly great wand cores either, aber they do well enough." Smirking, she put her hand down. Take that, Italian. With the smirk still present on her face, she waited for the professor to notice her. Surely he would from her outburst, whether it be for better or worse.

Seemingly as the words had just left his mouth, he already had an answer. The blonde girl next to that other one in the front..What were their names? Ah, he didn't know yet. But he heard the interruption and it did catch him a bit off guard.

"Trick question. Veela hairs have no qualities for potion making whatsoever. They aren't exactly great wand cores either, aber they do well enough."

Looking to see, it was in fact, the blonde girl next to 'the other one'. The smirk on her face was quite..Deterring.

"Very good...But you did not raise your hand." Saying nothing more, he handed the vial of Veela hairs to Francis and allowed him to leave before returning to the board.

"Now, as our friend in the front here said earlier, we are doing a Calming Draught. The Calming Draught's effects are simple; they bring the drinker to a calmed, very mellow, if you will, state. It is especially useful after traumatic events to bring people under control. Today, I want you all to pair up and make a draught for yourselves. If we have time at the end of class, we will test to see how effective they are. If not, we can try them first thing tomorrow."

Looking over his students, he was making sure there was an exact number so there would be no groups of three. Luckily enough, there was an exact count.

"Now I would like you all to pair up and wait for further instruction."

Oh goodness! She was so late. She'd gotten so caught up in talking with the Canadian from Hufflepuff that they'd both forgotten the time and had to quickly grab their things and run to class. Although that didn't turn out too well for her when she bumped, quite literally, into the Hufflepuff headmaster himself just inside her classroom.

"Oof! Te jó Isten(Oh my god)! sajnálom! Er- sorry sir." Her cheeks flushed slightly as she shuffled her papers a little to make them neat again in her arms. She just had not luck lately, none at all...

Ivan grinned widely when the teacher announced they would be working in pairs. He welcomed any opportunity to get close to another student (secretly very lonely and wanting company).

He swept his eyes across the room looking for someone who would make a nice partner. Maybe someone would come and ask to be his partner. He knew that wouldnt happen, though. at least there was an even number of students in the class, so someone would have to pair with him He flashed an innocent smile that effectively masked his saddened interior.

Felicia looked around the room in search of someone to partner up with. There was no one she knew, besides Elizaveta, Ivan and Emie. She weighed her options. There was no way she could work with Emie. The two now had a rivalry for their professor's affections. Elizaveta didn't seem like she would be all too reliable, as she'd been later than the Italian, herself.

Ivan was the only choice left. Felicia thought for a moment. The boy terrified her. But then she saw the sad smile on his face, and thought maybe there wasn't anything TOO bad about him. She bravely stood up and made her way to the back of the class. She would not be afraid. She was a strong, independent Italian who didn't need anyone to stand up for her.

Stopping in front of Ivan, she smiled to him brightly, her amber eyes shining. "Ve~" she started, unsure of exactly how to ask. "Be my partner, sí?"

Ivan tilted his head to one side, rather surprised he had been asked without having to use fear or force. He was even more surprised at how her eyes shone brightly, instead of being cloaked with apprehension. Sure, in a sense it was his own fault that everyone was dead afraid of him, but that didn't mean it didn't upset him at times.

Feeling overwhelmed with joy, he grinned as widely as he could and replied, "Da, I would love to."


(( Wow, super short post on my part. Couldn't think of anything else to say xD ))
