House/Year: Hufflepuff Fifth Year
Lesson(s) Missed: 1 - 2

With the sixth year came many changes. His relative Alexis was made prefect but not to the Puff's surprise. He had dated Willow for over a year now. After a wonderful breakfast, he carried his notebook and book along with a pen before making his way to class.

Herbology was quite an interesting class for the Hufflepuff. He took a seat in the middle of the room after greeting the professor and looked around as familiar faces started to file in the greenhouse. Soon enough, the class started as the professor welcomed them, explaining the course of the class for the semester. He then went straight on to the coursework and the Puff was excited to know that it was on something he loved. Noelle wrote in his notebook. He was already set on following either Prof. Carter or Castillo. Satisfied with his notes, he packed up his stuff before saying goodbye to the professor.

***​

Noelle arrived in the class for his second lesson. He had spent most of his time doing advanced readings with Willow. He settled in his usual seat as other students started to file in. The class began shortly with a discussion on the Devil Snare. He was rather familiar with the topic from a book he had once read and which took his interest to be a professor. Taking out his notebook, he began to take down notes and pausing to listen more to the professor. He mentioned anecdotes related to the topic at hand, some of which he had already read. He made a note to practice the spells against the plant just in time for them to end. Putting his things back in his bag, he waved goodbye to the professor.

Lesson Two

Quidditch practice hadn't really gone how Analei had hoped it would, but she hoped it wasn't going to effect the team's morale. She really wanted them to do well this year. Things with Arvel were a bit shaky, he didn't seem to be doing well, especially after his...argument with Zennon. But she was going to continue to stand by him, and be there for him for whatever he needed, even if he was a grouch at practice.
The Hufflepuff Prefect entered the classroom, taking her normal seat. She took out her things as the Professor began talking. She took a couple of notes as he spoke about the Devils Snare and how similar it was to the Flitterbloom. She raised her hand to answer the question, trying to not feel bitter about the fact she wasn't chosen. She knew the answer, and Hufflepuff could do with the points. Still, it was Zennon who answered so she couldn't be angry with him. Analei was excited to see the Danger House. She was excited to see the types of things she might be dealing with as an Auror. She stayed near the rest of the class, looking as carefully as she could without touching them. Analei nodded when the Professor dismissed them, definitely going to practice the spells he suggested.

Willow cullen
sixth year gryffindor
Compared to last years summer break this years had been better. Sure she had worked in the same place but miss west seemed to like her more or maybe she was just more happy. she had also been able to spend her lunch breaks with Fleur who had a job down the road at the menagerie or Noelle who came to obsidian some days just to see her. It was also exciting to help linden get ready to start his first year at school and to look after the new babies. Both her and chante’s siblings. She hoped that the two of them would grow up as close as she and her cousin were. She entered the Herbology greenhouse and took a seat next to Noelle.


Soon the class was starting and willow listened to what they would be learning about this year. Dangerous plants. They sounded like fun. Anything wth danger in its name sounded like fun. She was surprised at how quickly the lesson was over but soon they were dismissed and told to enjoy the sunshine. She left the classroom, sure the sun was out but it was still cold outside. But the professor was right it was a good day to be outside. She went for a wander through the garden around the side of the lake a little way then back around the edge of the forrest towards the quidditch pitch then cut up through to the castle.
Willow made her way to the Herbology greenhouse. She was glad that she had made the quidditch team again. Not that she had any doubt. But she was also glad that Fleur had finally made it as one of the starting players. She took a seat and listened as professor Castillo started to speak explaining the plant of the day. She had heard of devils snare before but have never seen it. the main thing she knew about it was that it liked the dark and that it was a plant that could kill people. She listened as the professor explained the plant in more detail explaining that it was sometimes confused with a flitter bloom. And to check the plant if someone gave her a flitter bloom. Who would even think of that. Is that the kind of person she would be looking out for when she graduated and started working as an auror. she followed the rest of the class as the professor led them out to one of the greenhouses one that they had not been in before. She looked into the darkened area and watched as the plant writhed around like a pit of snakes. Even though it was dark she could see it fairly clearly. A good night vision was one of the traits she had inherited from her parents apparently a werewolf skill that had passed down to her. Or maybe it was just a skill that one of her parents had that had nothing to do with their condition. Soon they were led out of the locked greenhouse and back to the main greenhouse. As the professor gave them homework. She didn’t usually like doing homework. And generally didn’t do it if it was for extra credit but this sounded like fun. She tried to think of each of the spells that could be useful for defending against devils snare and once she had written them down she made her way to the duelling chamber to practice.

Slytherin Fourth Year
Lessons 1 + 2

Lesson One
Agnes had been dreading classes up again. When she was on a break, or during the holidays, it was easy to hide away in the dungeons, teaching herself what she needed to know in order to pass her exams. Or at least she hoped she did. In reality she knew she was just avoiding the inevitable conversation with Elsie about why she'd not spoken to her for months, but with classes starting up again and her new position in the hospital wing, Agnes knew she was going to have to learn to scoot about the castle quietly in order to get where she needed to go.

She didn't actually mind Herbology. Of all her classes it was actually one of the simpliest ones she'd attended, nothing like DADA where she'd been forced to learn a bunch of random curses that she was never going to be able to use. She refused. Her parents no doubt would have her join the Scits if they had their complete control but Agnes was still pushing towards becoming a healer, hoping that she could prove her worth for good rather than bad. It was strange to know that this would be the last year with most of her current professors. She liked Professor Carter considerably, and was especially keen to find out they'd be learning about St Mungos this lesson. That was where she wanted to work when she was older. She got on with her work, writing down everything she knew about the establishment, easily able to write a number of pages for him there and then, before handing it in, and heading back to the castle.

Lesson Two
This week had been a bit sureal. She'd lasted a whole month before Elsie had figured out what she was doing, but Agnes was grateful things had turned out that way and they'd actually had the proper chance to speak about what was going on between them. She did like the Ravenclaw, and wished she could be more open and honest about her feelings towards the girl, but the pressures on her young shoulders were too much, and she wasn't sure what she could do to let Elsie know how grateful she was to her for keeping their relationship on the down low.

Taking a seat, Agnes did her best to distract herself with her work once again, taking a keen interest since it was all to do with her future career, something she was able to choose (however limited) for herself. Naturally they'd all heard of bubertubers before in potions, but this time it was learning about what properties the plant had that would help with healing that Agnes was really excited about. She made some notes, glad that she felt like she was making progress with her personally knowledge as well as in her education. At the end of the lesson she knew she'd have to check in at the hospital wing to see how Jo was getting on, and whether she could help out with her new wisdom, and headed upstairs after the lesson to find her.

Name: Artemisa Raven
House/Year: Gryffindor, 2nd Year
Lesson(s) Missed: Lesson 1 and 2

Lesson One

Artemisa strode in to Herbology class not quite knowing what to expect. She had liked the class the previous semester but not quite as much as Coco had. It had been more lectures last year than Misa would have liked but if the professor's lecture today was anything to go on, it seemed that there would be a lot of practical activity going on. And that was something she was actually looking forward to. Not to mention that they wouldn't be dealing with just any magical plant. They would be dealing with mandrakes. Having as much passion for potions as she did, of course Misa was well-aware of what mandrakes were, and how dangerous they could be. It didn't make the rest of the semester any less exciting though. With that encouraging thought, Misa returned to the castle after class.
Lesson Two

Artemisa had been looking forward to the next Herbology lesson all week and now that it had arrived she was quite looking forward to it. Wearing her twin's tie along with her Gryffindor robes, the girl entered the classroom, holding her earmuffs in one hand and her bag on the other. The lesson was going on rather smoothly and the instructions were pretty straightforward. And so when it was time for the demonstration, Misa put on her earmuffs, making sure it was secured properly. It wouldn't do to be knocked out in a lesson after all. The Gryffindor cringed though at the mandrake's appearance. Sure she expected them to be ugly, but not that ugly. They looked ... she couldn't even put into words how hideous they were. She banished the thought though since it was already time to deal with potting her own. As soon as she pulled out her mandrake, she stared at it for a bit. It was definitely crying, though she couldn't hear. It was hideous, though there was a little, very little, part of her that deemed it sort of cute. Her brows furrowed at that. After that moment of insanity, she placed her mandrake in the bigger pot and finished up the repotting. Soon enough the lesson was done and they were allowed to leave.

Name: Gwen Owens-Lee
House/Year: Gryffindor Sixth Year
Lessons Missed: 1,2,3

Lesson One:
Gwen was more than happy to be back at Hogwarts for another year. She didn’t stress last year like everyone else and was quite happy with the end result she had received. It just went to show that stressing out about things got people no where. The Gryffindor wasn’t doing as many classes this year than last and was hopeful that she could do even better as she packed everything she needed into her backpack so she could go to her classes for the day.

Gwen entered the Herbology greenhouse with a smile on her face. It was one of her favourite subjects and she hoped that this year would go smoothly. She listened as the professor spoke about dangerous plants. It was a scary but exciting concept that they would be working with them this year and Gwen couldn't wait. She was glad the lesson ended quickly and exited the classroom when the professor was done talking to head straight to her next class.

Lesson Two:
As the second week of classes came around for Gwen she was full of excitement for the rest of the year ahead. She completely forgot about attending the Gryffindor Quidditch Tryouts, but somehow this did not make her upset. Quidditch was not as good as the girl had initially thought, and so was happy that the weight of it was off her shoulders now. There were plenty of other things to do around the school and this kept her on her toes. The teen packed everything she needed into her backpack before heading out of the dormitory.

Gwen was the most excited about her Herbology lessons. She beamed at the professor as she entered the classroom, sitting on the edge of her seat as the professor began talking. The Devil's Snare had a scary name to it and Gwen made sure to write down some notes of what the professor was saying about it. The fact that it could be mistaken for a much less dangerous plant was frightening. Gwen didn't think she would ever be good enough to know the difference. When they were asked to follow the professor into the dangerous plants greenhouse, Gwen pushed her way to the front of the crowd. It was very dark in the section he took them in and the Gryffindor was tempted to illuminate her wand so she could see. However, the professor told them not to. The teen peered through the darkness to see something squirming in the distance. It was the Devil's Snare. She looked as closely as she could and thought it looked much more interesting than the professor described. Soon enough, the lesson ended and Gwen headed back up to the castle.

Lesson Three:
The third week of the semester had come quickly for Gwen, who had more than enough time now to focus on classes and was finishing her homework quicker than ever before. With no quidditch to think about, Gwen was as free as ever, having not much else to do than her school work. It made her enjoy it just a little bit and she couldn’t help but be happy that her attitude was changing. The teen made sure to pack everything she needed for that day before heading out to her first class.

Gwen entered the Herbology Greenhouse, taking a seat where she could and reverting her attention to the front of the room. Last lesson had been great and she was excited to see what else was in store for them. The professor began by talking about Screechsnap. He repotted one and then ordered the class to do the same. It reminded Gwen of repotting mandrakes in her second year. Taking all the necessary precautions, Gwen successfully repotted her one before they were asked to follow the professor into the dangerous plants greenhouse again. The snargaluff actually looked kind of pretty to Gwen, but it did have the potential to kill her if there was not a glass in between. She watched as it destroyed the twig that the professor dangled in front of its face. It definitely didn't look like something to be messed with. Eventually the lesson had ended and Gwen made her way back to the castle for a well-deserved nap.

One
The first Herbology lesson of the year already seemed to be off to an interesting start, with the professor handing out earmuffs at the door. The boy took them with a smile and slipped them over his ears as he found his usual seat in the greenhouse. The subject had to be one of his favourites as it reminded him so much of home, though it was still one he wasn't able to share with Ellie. All of the classes he'd most looked forward to sharing with her, they found themselves separated in, and no adjustments to the house pairings had been made coming into a new year. It was disappointing. By the time he realised the professor had already begun teaching, someone was answering a question about mandrakes. He took off the earmuffs and quickly began scribbling down notes from the person next to him to catch up. He didn't know mandrakes were only roots and not the actual plant, so that was interesting to note down. He'd have to tell his aunt about what he'd been learning. When the lesson came to a close, he packed his things and left, making sure to keep his earmuffs with him.

---

Two
It was the second week already, and as Lysander entered the greenhouse, he shot his usual workstation a quizzical look. His, and everyone elses, seemed to have stuff on them he didn't remember leaving there the previous lesson. When he learned that the pots contained mandrakes, his face broke into a broad grin. It was so cool. He'd never had a plant for a pet before, and he was excited to see what it would be like. Less messy, he assumed, until the professor instructed them to repot the mandrakes. Sander put on his gloves and work robes, despite his uniform already being in a rather dirty state from mucking about on the lawn earlier in the day. He listened to the professor go over the motions, before putting his own earmuffs on. By the looks of some of the other mandrakes being pulled out of their pots, they weren't too happy about it. Sander spent a moment trying to soothingly pet and stroke the leaves of his in the same way he'd pat his own pets, on the off chance it would help to calm it down. It didn't, and when he gently removed his mandrake from its small pot, he realised he was grateful for the earmuffs. The boy transferred it over and replanted and watered the poor plant. He gave it a few more soothing strokes on its leaves, before taking off his gloves and jotting down the homework for the day.​

Day One. My mandrake is so loud. I tried to stop him crying but it didn't really work this time. They're very different from dancing daisies and honking daffodils. I still kind of like him. He'll start to like me too soon I hope. I gave him some water after I moved him into his bigger house and he settled down a bit. Maybe next time I can bring him some plant food. Here's a picture:

Lesson Five
Sigurd was a little sad about the semester almost coming to an end. He was definitely going to miss herbology lessons but it was going to be nice to return home to his family garden soon and take a look at it from a different perspective. He would be able to help out his mother and aunt a little bit more now at least, he hoped.

He was ecstatic at the idea of going into the Forbidden Forest today, and he was actually almost shocked with himself to think that he hadn't found the time to take a peek in there himself any earlier yet. He knew he would eventually.. and he knew the students weren't allowed.. but he had definitely heard of other students doing it, and it was a forest after all, one of Sigurds favourite landscapes to explore. He was happy enough with having permission to go into the forest a little for class today, and he collected as much mistletoe as he could fit into the bag he was using. He really enjoyed being out in the forest, and he did spend a lot of time gazing off into the distance and wondering what was really out there and and what was hidden in the deepest parts of the forest.

When the students returned to the greenhouse, Sigurd listened carefully to the next set of instructions, he didn't want to make any mistakes or ruin any of the mistletoe he had collected. At the end of the lesson he placed his mistletoe in the designated trough and threw all of the scraps into the compost as expected, and returned to the castle starting to feel a little bit excited about the approaching holidays and the festive season.

Lesson 1
Katia Hensel got ready for the new semester, which had a few classes that she actually tried in, while others she did not so much. She tied her hair back into a ponytail, and ensured that she looked her best. After being named the future head, she had to look her best. Though, she had some members of the family now following her around. Katia was just lucky that none of them were in her dorm. Katia smiled at the mirror with pride, as she left the towers. She walked down the corridors until she found her classroom. She glanced around, her golden eyes looking over the room. Right, she wanted a place toward the front, but not the main front. She got ready for the class to begin.

Professor Carter started the class with an enthusiastic greeting, then a reminder that they were going to have their OWLs next year, and then, well, they were going to have another professor. Katia didn't really know what to think about that, since she thought that Carter was pleasant. The subject this year was over Saint Mungo's. They were going to be providing them some plants and harvest as well. Also providing some for the school nurses. They were given homework, which she wrote down. She left the classroom, since she felt that the lesson was over, and she was ready to go.

Lesson 1
Mihail Styx sat up on the bed, not really looking forward to the lesson ahead. It was the beginning of the semester, and Mihail did not want to go to class and learn stuff. He wanted to just go to the kitchens and practice his cooking. He didn’t want to learn much, but his father urged him to be a good student. Mihail would do an okay job, and that would be enough to satisfy his dad. The Hufflepuff got ready for his class, met up with his best friend and walked into the room. The Hufflepuff sat down in his chair, and waited for the professor to start the lesson. It would not be long since he was there on time.

His Head of House was enthusiastic about the subject, which made Mihail look forward to the lessons ahead. They were going to be harvesting plants that they were going to use to send to the school nurses and over to the magical hospital. Healing was a great subject, overall, and it would be interesting to see what plants were used for such potions and spells. The lesson was soon over so he got up and left the class for the day, after dismissal.

Lysander was particularly excited for this Herbology lesson. He'd written to his house-elf about his progress with raising his mandrake, and she'd knitted the plant a makeshift hat to keep his leaves warm and dry. The boy listened to the professor give his usual introductions upon stepping into the greenhouse, but busied himself with fitting the hat over Owen's leaves. They'd gotten bigger since he'd seen him last, and a lot more...well, he wasn't sure how he would have described how they felt, until the professor wrote the term "waxy" on the board. That was fitting, and as Lysander read the rest of his writing, he realised his baby wasn't just a baby anymore. He was parenting a mandrake teen! He wasn't even a teen yet himself! By the time he managed to slip the hat on and stepped back to admire it, his mandrakes leaves shook it off, and it fell in a sad heap on his soil, before disappearing underneath. Sander frowned, watching as his mandrake popped up from the earth soon after. He looked different. Still a potato-ey looking human, but more pimply and angry. Or, he thought that was the case, at least. It was difficult to tell with the leafy fringe he'd grown to cover his eyes. "Hi, Owen. How're you?" He asked the plant. The mandrake seemed to just roll its eyes and slinked back into the earth. "Kids these days." Lysander sighed. He left some food and water in the pot and left with the others when it was time.

That night, Lysander returned to meet the rest of his class and watch the mandrakes. After how rude Owen had been, he didn't really want to watch him, but he thought it would be interesting to see what everyone else's were like. It hadn't taken him long to spot his moody plant. He seemed annoyed that one of the others had knocked on his pot, and while most of them seemed to dance and fight and have a good time, Owen brooded in a corner by himself and shot the others withering glares. He got fed up with watching him do nothing, and spent the resto f the night focusing on everyone else's.​

Mandrake Progress
Owen is older than me. I mean, he's still younger than me because he's only been growing for a few weeks, but he's...older than I am. He's a teen mandrake, and I don't really like him that much anymore. I don't think I want to have children when I'm older now. They're too much work and sometimes they hate you for no reason. I'll just have animals instead.

I'm pretty sure Owen is still a boy. He didn't act like the other girl ones, and his face has a lot of pimples. His leaves were pretty oily and gross too.

----

6
Though Owen hadn't been the nicest mandrake towards the end, Lysander didn't know if he was ready to give him up. He'd written a lot about him in his journal, and monitored so much of his progress for such a long time that it felt hard to move on and leave him behind. He was interested to see how he'd grown once again, and if he'd changed out of his moody phase. Upon entering the greenhouse, the boy inspected the pot, in its usual spot on his work-station. The leaves definitely looked bigger, but as usual it was the only part of his plant that he could make out. He sighed, and turned to listen to the professor. He mentioned being forceful, yet gentle, which didn't make a lot of sense to Lysander. He slipped on his earmuffs and followed the man's instructions by carefully tugging Owen from his pot. He thought he'd struggle, but his practice as a beater seemed to be paying off, and the mandrake emerged from the soil fairly easily. It was too bad that was the only easy part of the process. He turned Owen around in his arms to face him, but the plant thrashed about to the point that he almost dropped him. "Sh, come on. Relax. I'm getting you a bigger house." He told it. It only earned him a nip on one of his gloved fingers, no matter how many minutes he spent trying to calm it down enough to move without issue. Fed up, he dropped the plant into its second pot, and dumped the contents of his soil bucket on top to stop him climbing back out and causing a mess. With an exhausted sigh, he sat down. He was grateful by the time the lesson was over, and lowered his earmuffs to his neck so he could hear what the professor had left to say. he recalled the man saying that mandrakes could save lives, as a lot of magical plants would, but it wasn't until he dismissed them that he realised it wasn't anything like he'd imagined it to be. "What do you mean, chop them up?" He asked, not entirely expecting to get an answer since most people were leaving. His aunt brewed potions, and his dad supplied her with ingredients from the animals in the menagerie. Feathers, clippings, fur. Stuff that fell off naturally or wasn't needed. He thought the mandrakes would be given a haircut or something so their leaves could be used, not that they'd be killed. Feeling down, he slumped away from the classroom.​

Lesson 1
Louise Romanes did not have too much to think about lately, even though his dad was sending letters to someone that was not his mother. Louise did not really know who that might have been. His mother had not contacted them in so long, Louise barely remembered what his mother looked like. It was truly a sad situation, but what could be helped? The Gryffindor got ready in his dorm, hating everything there was to music. Louise finished getting ready, and was on his way to the class, which was the first lesson of the semester. Exams would be coming up, but Louise never worried about them too much. He went into the classroom and found his seat. He folded his hands together and waited for the lesson to begin.

Professor Carter started up the class with how they were going over mandrakes. Wait, they were not just going over them, it seems. He took his earmuffs and held them in his bag, because they were going to handle them. Louise was a little worried about that, but he would just need to be careful about the mandrakes was all. At least Professor Carter had spares just in case though. And, that was all for the day. Louise packed his stuff and left the classroom, dreading handling mandrakes.


Lesson 6
The sixth lesson of the semester came up really fast for Louise Romanes. He barely remembered the entire semester of material. It was all a blur. Louise could barely think about it though. He had exams to focus on. He made his way through the corridor, before finding his classroom. He took a seat and waited for the lesson to begin. Maybe it was a study lesson and maybe it wasn't. Louise did not mind either way. Instead, he just got out his stuff and waited for the professor to start the lesson. The part-veela sighed, hoping that it would be quick either way. Professor Carter spoke about how they were going to be repotting mandrakes. Louise looked at his own, with him glaring up at him. Louise put on his earmuffs, and gloves. He smirked and got to work. After so long, he managed to get his repotted. The Gryffindor left the greenhouses, exhausted.

Lesson Six

It was getting closer to exams, and Analei was finding herself more and more stressed. She was definitely looking forward to the Christmas break, and had invited both Edmund and Arvel over for a Christmas dinner at her place. She really wanted the two to be friends.
Analei took her usual seat, taking her equipment out, ready for the lesson to start. She breathed a sigh of relief when Professor Castillo said it would be a study session. She didn't really want to say goodbye to her plant, but she supposed she should check on it and make sure it was okay; she'd hate for her grades to drop because it died after the exams. After checking on it, Analei went back to her spot, going over her notes, preparing herself for the exam.

The final lesson, which brought Selvanna Styx some joy, was upon her. The Slytherin walked into the classroom and found her seat. Selvanna smiled a bit as she got her things out to either study or gain new news. Selvanna looked ahead at the professor to see what they were going to be doing today. She tied her hair back so that she could see a little easier. They were going to be repotting their mandrakes. Selvanna took out her girl that she named Flower since she didn't know what to name a stupid plant. She handled her with her earmuffs in place, and eventually got Flower in her bigger pot. Selvanna then left, hardly feeling any remorse since to her, mandrakes were just plants. No need to get attached.

Videl Zhefarovich the Second could wait an eternity to go back to class, but alas, here he was. Getting ready to waste his time, woohoo. Videl’s only saving grace was Amari, but that was if she was in the class. Second years had only two houses per class, until their third year, then all classes were combined. Then, he could sit next to her anytime he wanted. Videl had to shove that thought cause why should he care on who he sits next to? Videl made his way to class, and took his seat in the back. He just needed to last a bit before they got started.

Professor Carter greeted the class, and explained how they were going over mandrakes. Then, Professor Carter even mentioned that they were going to actually handle them too. Videl shook his head and took some notes down, and stuffed his earmuffs into his bookbag. At least the lesson was over. Videl got up and left the greenhouses, not sure how to feel about this.

Lesson Missed: One

The brown haired boy was ready for his first lesson of Herbology this semester again. He walked into the greenhouse and smiled the students again and waited for the professor to start. He took some parchment and stuff to take notes and listened as the professor explained. Things about country's it was and he writed it down. If it was usefull for exam he wouldn't want to miss out on it. It wasn't a very long lesson but the brown haired boy had already learned that China was the main leading country in Herbology. He didn't knew that yet so he was curious what he would be learning more this year. When the lesson was over he left and would prepare for the next lessons.

Lesson Missed: One

Charlotte was focused on her last semester ever on Hogwarts. She tried to do the very best she could and thought of what she wanted to do. One thing that she knew was that she didn't want to follow in her fathers footsteps. She wanted more in the wizarding world. Together with Simon she could achieve a lot. Be known around the world for good work. Charlotte had her eyes on the Ministry and hoped she could achieve that. For sure it was known that she and Simon wanted to stay together, they had to be talking details but she would follow him wherever they would go. It was something that was sure.

The blonde entered the greenhouse not that excited since it wasn't her favorite subject, but she wanted to get a good grade though. So she would try and do her best. Gladly the professor wasn't that bad looking either, so that helped. She took some parchment to write along so she could see what they would be handeling this year. Dangerous plants it seemed, not that she was so happy with that. She writed along what the professor said and would prerpare well with the theory for sure. That would be her strenght for sure, she hated touching plants.

Lesson(s) Missed: Two
Marco wasn't really that worried about the upcoming exams. He knew he should probably start studying soon, but for some reason the stress about them wasn't getting to him, not like it was to his classmates. Stress usually didn't help, with anything, so especially not with the workload. The boy packed the necessary textbooks for class and headed to Herbology, taking a seat near the front when he arrived. He quickly took out his quills and a piece of parchment as the man began the lesson, it was interesting stuff, it was practical, therefore Marco wasn't one hundred per cent sure which part was most fascinating for him. It was a more fun class than his others. Marco nodded slowly when Professor Castillo told them they would be harvesting their own puffapod. Yes! Fun stuff!! He watched with an eager expression as the man demonstrated what they were to do exactly. The boy had promised his parents at the end of last summer that he would try harder. It seemed to be working, his grades were better. Marco picked a plant that he wanted to work with, and once he had carefully twisted one of the pods sharply, but not with too much force, he grinned. He tried not to put too much pressure on the pods as he didn't want to waste the seeds inside, and placed them in the bucket. He repeated this process (failing two or three...or five times...maybe he could send the large flowers on his desk to his sisters), until there were not many more seeds he could collect from the plant. The professor dismissed them soon after he was done. Marco grabbed his belongings and headed back to the castle, pleased with his work today.

Lesson 1


Final year. The final year of classes and exams. Of quidditch games and curfews. Alexis breathed a deep sigh as she grabbed her bag and headed to class. Along with the many changes, an engagement ring on her hand was the biggest change. Alexis was more excited for what the second semester brought and with that in mind, Ravenclaw arrived at the class and took her seat. The class began and they all went directly to the lesson for the day. This was perfectly understandable as they had to prepare for NEWTS. With her notebook and pen on the ready, she took down notes and this went on for the whole period. The class ended and they were dismissed.
