"Welcome to Hogwarts! I'm Professor Patrick and I'll be teaching Potions. I would like to make this term interesting and exciting, while I also keep it informative and professional when the time calls for it. Now, can anybody share out something they think they might know about potions or how you make them? If you're unsure about your thoughts, still feel free to say something."
Coraline nodded, "Well, those are all correct responses...and yes, those would be healing potions, but there are also other kinds," she said, "As to summarize, a potion is something mostly made in a cauldron while ranging in use or effect as well as their nature based on the ingredients put into the potion and in what order or amount...some are beneficial to the drinker, but others can be harmful. For you all, we'll be doing stuff that's more easy and less risky to get you the hang of it. Are there any questions about them?"

She would raise her hand and doing her signature singing her words said ♪ will we be making any potions in this class? ♪
"Yes. Why in the world did people think it would be a good idea to invent a potion that puts you into an eternal sleep? Going all Jocelyn Fray on us?" Ruiko doubted that she would be able to get a question in later, so she pushed forward now.
"Yes, we'll be going into potion-making sometime into the year, but we'll also be focusing on types of cauldrons and some of the potion ingredients that aren't covered in your Herbology lessons," she said, before continuing on to finish the boy's question as well, "As for which potions, some of those include the Forgetfulness Potion and Wideye Potion to name a few," she smiled slightly before turning to Ruiko, "As for your question, that's great of you to ask but you never really know when it might come in handy...although there probably wouldn't be an everyday use for it."
"Hello, Second Years! I'm Professor Patrick and I'll be teaching Potions for you this term. I want to keep this subject interesting to everybody while I also keep it educational, but I will not take well to tardiness or homework being incomplete. Anyways, who decided to take a sneak peek at their textbooks and can tell me a thing or two about the Girding Potion? Even if you only think you have some clue, still feel free to share because all of your guys' input on the question is welcome."
This class still made her a bit nervous, but she was determined to participate more fully this year. She didn't know anything about the potion though-- her parents had locked up all her stuff in the basement over the summer, and refused to let her have access.
"Its effects are similar to that of a Muggle energy drink, and possibly illegal substances. Downside is that it smells awful. Hold your nose when taking it," Rain pipes up. In spite of the bags shouldered by her eyes, here's no disguising her enthusiasm for the subject.
"Hey, Third Years! I'm Professor Patrick, the new Potions professor. If you don't mind, this is going to be a very interactive and fun year, or hopefully it will be, but we're also going to avoid being late to class and not turning in any homework late. Anyways, you probably have gotten the same speech from all your classes, so let's just jump in to see what you know, shall we? Hmm, what do we know about the Wiggenweld Potion?"
Arthur AttawayGryffindor 3nd Year -"True strength comes from within." – 13:48, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
He had no idea what the Professor was talking about, even though he was pretty good at making potions. "Ummm...does it make your toes...wiggle?"
"Miss Fleming, I advise you lift your head up off your desk. It's disrespectful to both me and the other students sharing out," she said, at noticing both the lack of sitting up and the snickering, while choosing to ignore the latter, "As for Mister Attaway, it does wake those brought into slumber from some form of magic, so that's ten points to Gryffindor. So, if it helps cure magical sleep, does anybody know what type of potion that makes it?"
Arthur AttawayGryffindor 3nd Year -"True strength comes from within." – 16:04, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
He'd frown again, still unsure what the Professor was asking. "A...wake-up potion?"
-"Words will be words until you bring them back to life." Message Me - 16:30, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
She quirked an eyebrow when she was called out, and remained staring at her, with her chin on the desk, "I'm still looking at you, professor, and paying attention, so I don't really see how that's considered disrespectful."
"Incorrect, Mister Attaway," she said, barely thinking about it as she moved to near Sofia's desk, "Miss Fleming, this is not going to be a very pleasant year for you if you plan on continuing like this. Please, sit up and at least pretend to be engaged."
-"Words will be words until you bring them back to life." Message Me - 16:49, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
"I am engaged!" she huffed, but nonetheless sits straight. Though from the look on her face, she isn't too pleased about it. "Have you not seen how I'm paying attention and not sleeping nor talking with anyone else nor passing notes?" This may land her in detention, but right now, Sofia barely cares. This so called "professor" who was just a student herself last year was claiming she was being disrespectful, when she wasn't.

He'd gently put a hand on Sofia's shoulder and look at the Professor, his voice calm. "She wasn't feeling great yesterday Professor...if she's paying attention is it really a big issue if she rests her head?"
"I'm not fighting you, Miss Fleming," she said, before backing away and shaking her head, both really annoyed and understanding to some extent, "I'm not giving you detention either, although I'm very tempted. However, your attitude will not be allowed any further so you might want to keep quiet if you don't have anything beneficial to add to the classroom at this time please," she collected her thoughts, before continuing, "If you're actually not feeling well, by all means go to the Hospital Wimg to get helped out."
-"Words will be words until you bring them back to life." Message Me - 17:07, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
Of course you're not going to fight me. I'm right, she thought to herself, rolling her eyes as the professor backed up. "I can manage," she muttered, leaning against the chair and crossing her arms over her chest. Glancing beside her, she mustered up a smile for Arthur, hoping it conveyed her thanks.
Arthur AttawayGryffindor 3nd Year -"True strength comes from within." – 18:24, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
He'd wink at her before turning his attention back to the Professor.
Alden AttawayGryffindor Third Year -"You just can't beat the person who won't give up." – 18:28, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
He rolled his eyes at Sofia's behavior. "Are you asking what Potion it works against, Professor?" he asked, trying to clarify her last question. "Like... Draught of Living Death?"
"No, but since that information is correct, you can get five points for your respected house," she said, before pushing her hair back behind her ears and continuing, "Actually, Mister Attaway was on the right track, just he didn't quite get it. So, the Wiggenweld Potion is a type of healing potion not a wake-up potion."
A'dez DanielGryffindor 3rd Year -It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not. – 23:19, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
Shaking his head at the ridiculous answers he raised his hand and said "It's considered a healing potion professor" he would then quickly look at the Fleming girl shoot her a smile then immediately look back at the professor
Alden AttawayGryffindor Third Year -"You just can't beat the person who won't give up." – 20:07, July 26, 2016 (UTC)
He was vaguely familiar with it. "So... to bring someone out of a magically induced sleep, if they were put under for some kind of.... procedure?"
Coraline nodded, "Hm, that's one possible solution for it, good thoughts...and there's probably other solutions for it that can be thought of," she said, giving a faint smile, "Now, does anybody know some of the ingredients to make it?"
"Hello, Fourth Years! I'm Professor Patrick and I'll be teaching Potions now. Hopefully, we can make this year nice and exciting, while also sticking to a good learning environment. So, what can be told about antidotes and any known ones you might know from past years or from just skimming through textbooks? Even if you don't know for sure, sharing would be great because it could make for progressive conversation."
