He'd smile at the first years. "Welcome to Hogwarts. As you know this is Herbology class and I'm Professor Prince. Now...we're supposed to be going over..." He'd check the parchment the Ministry had sent. "Fire-Making Spell and Spiky Bushes...but given that you'll get to fire spells quickly in Transfiguration and we can do spikey bushes later in the year let's do something more fun instead. Alright class please follow me."

He'd smile at the first years as they gathered around on the beach near the lake. "So...most people think of herbology as a boring class and not very useful in the real world. Today I'm going to demonstrate just how useful magical plants can be." He'd indicate a bucket fully of some sort of seaweed. "This is called gillyweed. It's a bit slimy but can be very useful when you need it. Eating some will give you gills and fins and enable you to breath underwater. So...I've marked off a section of the lake for swimming...feel free to get some and have a good time. After all summer is barely over and everyone loves to swim. Please don't leave the marked off section...there's nets going to the bottom so it should be easy to stay inside. I'll be here on the shore if you need anything."

OOC:Feel free to RP swimming and playing in the lake below.

It sounds gross and not very refined. He takes a moment to consider it but finally gives in. The prince takes a piece gillyweed, chewing up the disgusting thing. "Ugh, can't chefs make this taste at least, decent?" He mostly mumbles this under his breath, before taking his first, unenthusiastic steps into the water.

Twyla snagged a piece of gillyweed and popped it into her mouth without hesitation. "Ugh, it tastes awful." Unlike Edgar, Twyla shot into the water and vanished beneath the surface.

Victoria personally didn't think it sounded very appeasing to eat, but took some and chewed. She was right, It was rather disgusting, then again, her mother had a tendency to eat, cook and serve Escargot, so she couldn't complain. She soon after stepped into the water. It was still rather warm, owing to early September weather, but she still shivered briefly.

Duke is an absolute little shit who refuses to get his clothes drenched. So he starts undressing, until he's just in his pants. Grinning from ear to ear, he trudges over to the bucket, plucking one of the slimy rat tails and immediately swallowing it. He almost chokes (of course he does) and pukes, but all is well in his world a few seconds later. Right before he gains some gills, he pads into the water, fully submerging himself the second the lake is deep enough.

Alena stares at the bucket, completely perplexed. "Do I have to do this, professor?" she asks, looking a bit dismayed. She refused to admit she didn't know how to swim. (her cousins would never let her live it down. They had a beach in their backyard, for Merlin's sake.

Akin to a water creature, she peered just above the surface until she spotted Duke. Smirking evilly, she disappeared once more. After a few moments of quiet, Twyla grabbed his foot and dragged him down into the watery depths.

Cleo Levesque - Ravenclaw first year

Message Me – {{{2}}}

She was kind of in the same boat as Alena. She had one of the gillyweed's in her hand and was staring down at it perplexed. She had to eat that? Why couldn't there just be a spell? It would be more pleasant than this.

Dakota WB!

Hesitant at first, Dakota really didn't want to eat the gillyweed, it looked gross. But nonetheless, he ate it anyways and shyly took off his shirt. It was nice and he didn't want it smelling like lake water all day. With the air feeling cold against his now bare upper half, Dakota made his way into the water.

He knows how expensive buying robes were for his parents, so he follows his brother's suit, and eats the gillyweed, before making his way towards his peers.

The taste does leave a lot of something to be desired, like actually tasting edible, but Yuki's had much worse. What does leave him annoyed this time is people undressing. Did they really think the professor was going to let them plod back off to the castle sopping wet? Nothing that he was willing to comment about. He submerges, no further prompting needed.

EQ wasn't too fond of eating the gillyweed either, but the thought of exploring underwater excited him. He was worried about Alena though. He knew she couldn't swim. He moved over to his cousin, and held out a piece of the gillyweed. "C'mon, it'll be fun. I'll help you." EQ offered with smile.

He'd smile at those who were asking to opt out. "If you really don't want to I'm not going to force you...this is supposed to be a fun lesson just to demonstrate how useful herbology can be. That being said if you're worried about being able to swim or getting wet there's really no reason to since you'll be able to breathe and it's actually a devent way to learn to swim." He'd smile. "...and of course we'll get everyone dry before heading back up to the castle. It's safe...but if you'd rather sit out of the fun that's your choice."

She'd watched her classmates for a moment and then stepped up to take some of the slimy green plant. She grimaced as she touched it, and forced it straight into her mouth, chewing and grimacing before heading into the water.
