"Got something a little different for you all today as a treat for surviving your snargaluffs last week," Angel said encouragingly as his Seventh years began arriving, motioning the last stragglers inside the greenhouse. In previous years, Angel had set up the class with a quiz this week, but quizzes meant grading and Angel hated grading, so he'd decided to try something a bit different today.

"What we have here is an Alihotsy, you may have encountered its leaves in Potions already," Angel said, waving a hand to the small tree he'd set up in front of the class. It had rather distinctive mottled red and green leaves, which Angel pointed to with his wand as he spoke. "Also known as the Hyena plant, anyone know what these leaves can do when ingested?" Angel pointed at one of the students, always pleased when they answered things so he didn't have to. "That's right, they induce hysteria and uncontrollable laughter, hence the nickname. You'll often find them in Laughing Potions,"

Stepping away from the tree to let the students investigate, Angel retrieved his other, more hands on item for today's class, happily dropping it on the bench in front of them. "Alihotsy's also pretty common in confectionary, diluted of course, since the cheering effect is rather pleasant," He said, relieving the collection of fudge and flavored chocolates he'd picked up from Honeyduke's last time he was in Brightstone. "Glumbumble treacle is also an excellent antidote to Alihotsy leaves, so I've picked up some of that for you all to try too. For science of course, you understand," Angel smiled, motioning his students to grab some of the chocolates and fudge on the table. "That's all I've got today, help yourself and relax a bit while you still can," He said before grabbing some of the fudge himself and taking a seat as the lesson wrapped up.

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 greenhouses and hoped it would be a lecture lesson but she would see. She waited for the professor to explain. But so far it seemed like she didn't had to touch something. And when a question was asked she raised her hand quickly and was glad to be chosen.
'' They induce hysteria and uncontrollable laughter. '' Charlotte than answered with a smile. When they could grab some fudge the blonde took a piece and it was nice to have it. When the lesson came to an end the blonde writed down what was important but it wasn't a long lesson today so it was short. She left the room as she could.

Starting to write the speech for the graduation ceremony had really put it in perspective for him, how close to the end of the semester that it was becoming, how close to his graduation it was becoming, he had known and been looking for to graduating, but it still seemed pretty wild that it was so quickly coming. The ravenclaw had been sure to include as much as possible without making the spend too long, he didn’t want to end up boring everyone with inane things, but it was difficult to know what to say really. He had so much that he wanted to say, so much that he felt was necessary but he wanted to keep it brief and he didn’t know what Leda was going to say and without the ability to know what she might wan to say he was careful to avoid saying things that would retread territory. The ravenclaw put down his quill, stopping what he was writing and focused more so on getting ready for the day in front of him. He would leave enough time to be able to finish his speech later without it interfering with his school work. With that thought Simon gathered the last of what he would need and headed to class.
Simon walked into the herbology classroom and took his usual spot in the room. His gaze shifted to the professor at the front of the room, he still felt a little sore from the last class of herbology, it had been good, but it was just not the kind of sore that Simon was much used to. The head boy took out his notes and books and placed them down in front of him. He took his quill as the professor began speaking, tell them about Alihosty, which they had encountered many times in potions. It was odd to now see the plant. He listened as the professor told them that the leafs induced laughter, which did explained the name and some of the potions that they were found in. He looked at the fudge that the professor brought out, and he could figure what they were to do. Any excuse to eat something a little more sugary. He like others, tried the fudge and then after it had grown boring to be laughing away to himself he ate the other sweet that would counter it and with that the lesson was wrapped up and they were dismissed.

With a plan to throw a small party for their year especially for Simon and Leda, Alexis almost lost track of the time and hurriedly made her way to her class. Taking out her notes the moment she sat down, the class shortly began. As expected, Prof. Castillo always had something new for the lesson. With the lesson on Alihotsy and since this was a comon ingredient in Laughing Potions, the prefect suspected they would be having fun with it. Sure enough, the professor prepared some sweets which was laced with, yup, alihotsy. Soon enough, they were free to take one and subject themselves to some fun. The Ravenclaw took one and had a bite. Almsot instantly, she began to laugh and cheer for no particular reason. It went on for a couple more seconds before it subsided. She took one more bite, a bigger one, making her laugh even more. Cheeks blushing, she quickly reached for the treacle and took a bite. Her laughter died down and shaking her head, she packed her things since they were already dismissed. She could not wait to tell Xavier about it.

After the last Herbology lesson, Patrick contemplated whether or not he should even attend the next one. He had developed a few bruises on his arms and torso and could only hope that this lesson wouldn't require too much physical work. He entered the greenhouse, taking his usual seat. To Patrick's delight, a small tree that seemed harmless as ever sat at the front of the room. The professor told the class that it was Ailhotsy, which Patrick recognised from Potions class. The teen made sure to write some notes down on it, figuring it would be very important for the exam. When the lesson came to an end, Patrick did not bother taking the chocolate and fudge that the professor offered and simply headed straight to his next class.
