PostSubject: Spooky Potions   Mon Oct 08 2007, 23:20



Halloween is almost upon us, class! Gather round the cauldron and tell a story of the scariest Potions encounter you have ever had! Tell of the time Snape caught you stealing supplies from his closet, or the time you drank the dark blood red potion...

Once again, there is no word maximum, but I want at least 350 words. This class will be worth 70 points.

NOTE: Do NOT copy other students' work and cite all sources used! Remember to pay attention to spelling and grammar as well as originality and presentation, as it all counts!

Good luck, and enjoy!

:: Herby gasped at hearing her Potions Professor talk about scary stories, and was very reluctant to say anything; or hear anything for that matter. Halloween was a strange ritual that Muggles seemed to find fascinating, which seemed to turn Herbys stomach. ::

:: There was no way she was going to sit here and listen to this. :: Herby thought to herself.

” This class will be worth 40 points” :: Herby heard Rigby state. ::

:: Oh, my gosh?! There was no way she was going to pass up opportunities to gain her house another 40 points, and surely there were 5 extra points to be received. ::

:: Herby gathered back around the cauldron and waited for her turn. To her surprise she didn’t have to wait long as it seemed she was the first to go. ::

:: She sat down, and made everyone form a semi-circle. With a flick of her wand smoke started to fill the room and it seemed to give the potions classroom a bit more of an edgy feeling. Clearing her throat Herby started her story about the Evil Red Vial. ::

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
:: It began like any other day, the sun shining through Herbys window. The birds were sing and driving Herby nuts so she through her last pillow out the window. After a while of not having any pillows Herby decided it was time to get up.::

I hate the sun ::Herby thought to herself. :: If only there were night time savings

:: Feeling a bit depressed Herby flicked her wand towards her closet and immediately became dressed. ::

There was no way she was showering today. ::She thought to herself ::

:: As she headed towards her bedroom door, a small tap could be heard from the other side. Unsure who it was, Herby automatically knew it was her dorky brother Richard. ::

“Richard, you dirt muncher. What do you want?”

:: Herby waited but to her surprise, he didn’t respond. ::

“Come on Richard I know it was you.” :: Herby yelled as she reached for the door hoping to catch him in the act.::

:: As Herby opens her door, unaware of what was lurking behind it. She was surprised to see that it wasn’t her brother at all, but a funny floating Red Vial which was magically enchanted. ::

:: After a few moments of staring at it, Herby came to a few conclusions. First off, her brother was in first year at Hogwarts and surely didn’t make it. So the only other possibly was her parents, well one of her parents. Her father was a Muggle and her mother was a Witch. ::

:: A bit more confusion lie ahead as Herbys mother was looking after the Dragons with Charlie Weasley for a week, and surely she wouldn’t have enchanted this Red Vial when she was coming home tomorrow. ::

:: Feeling a bit scared and nervous, Herby took a big breath and reached for the Red Vial that now float in front of her. Grasping it, Herby screamed.::

Its cold

:: Smirking a bit, Herby opened the vial and smelled. The sweetest smell to ever hit her noise was what was in this vial. The scent filled Herby and embraced her with aroma. Looking around, Herby gulped down the Red stuff, and let out a huge blood curtailing scream. ::

“AHhhhh”

:: Richard came running around the corner, a bit freaked out after hearing a weird scream coming from the hallway. Richard tried to remember the last time he heard Herby scream. After a second of pondering Richard remembered when his mother magically enhanced their hair dryer to super dry, but instead caused Herby hair to fall out. ::

:: Richard giggled as he came around the corner and was greeted with the most horrendous thing he had ever seen. Standing before him wasn’t at all what he expected to see. ::

“Herby?” ::Richard replied a bit nervous, as he clenched his wand tight. ::

“Don’t look at me, I’m ugly” ::Screamed Herby as she ran towards to bathroom, hoping that the magical charm where ware off at any moment.::

“What happened to you?” ::Richard said sounding a bit scared.

“Go away!!”

“Do you want me to send an owl to mom?” :: asked Richard. ::

:: Herby was quite shocked that her little brother seemed sincere and was trying to help her. ::

“Oook” ::Herby finally give and hoped that their trusted owl wouldn’t take that long to return with good news.::

:: After a few moment passed, Herby hear giggling behind the door. Unsure what was happening Herby opened the door a small crack. ::

“Ah” :: Herby heard her father scream as she shut the door in his face. ::

“What happened?” :: Herbys father asked concerned. ::

“She a monster...haha. My sister is a monster. I knew it.” :: Richard screamed for joy.::

“Shut it Richard” :: Herbys father beat her to it.::

:: She was getting completely ticked off and the worst part about is that her brother didn’t know who she was. If he knew, it would be even funnier then what it could possibly be now. Herby started to feel blessed and grateful that her parents never really paid that much attention to Muggle TV. ::

“Hun.” :: Herby heard her father though the bathroom door. “Its ok it’s not that big of a deal”

:: Herby cried even harder and continued to sob as she spoke. ::

“I don’t ... understand..... why?”

“There are virus vials going around. Your mother sent me an owl yesterday, but you know me it sounded like Junk Mail and so I threw it away. Some idiot is sending out Red Vials that are full of a virus that transforms anyone who drinks it into whomever they want them to be. ::

:: Herby gasped ::

“So I’m not a monster? And its fixable?” ::Herby wiped her tear from her face ::

“Yes, I’ll just find your mothers port key and we can have everything fixed in no time.”

:: Even though she was this yellow creature, Herby was so happy and excited to hear the good news. ::
---------------------------------------------------
:: Herby comes back to reality, unaware that her classmates where looking a bit freaked.::

:: Herby continued explaining how her father grabbed the wrong port key and they ended up at some church where a wedding was going on. That was a bit tricky to explain to the Ministry of Magic how Muggles at the wedding were screaming that I was real.::

“ What were you anyway? “ ::Asked a fellow classmate. ::

:: Herby blushed a bit, and decided not to lie. ::

“I was La-La the teletubby”

:: All Herby heard through out the class was ah, and few cries. It seemed that none of her classmates had ever watched Muggle Teletubbies and Herby smirked a bit and embellished how ugly she was. ::

:: This of course got the class worked up some more and they wanted Herby to draw them a replica of the monster. ::

:: Feeling a bit pleased to completely freak out the class, Herby gratefully started drawing.::

Dragon held her breath as Flich and his sidekick cat slunk by her hiding place behind the giant tapestry. Peering out and breathing a sigh of relief, she darted into the Potion classroom. Fumbling in the dark she banged her leg on an object and dropped the ground, nursing it. So much for being quiet.

With a whisper of ‘lumos’ she quickly adjusted the chair that had fallen over and skirted into the Potion storage room. Glancing around nervously she fumbled at the shelves to read the labels. Suddenly she head voices – right outside the door. Holding her breath she crouched behind the door of the room and waited – Just remembering to extinguish her lumos in the process.

“Professor Snape, it seemed like a student is out of bed” the voice that she recognize as Flich drawled.
Not catching Snape’s reply she only saw stars as the door banged as it was flung aside –hitting her head with a thump.

Dazedly sprawled on the ground, she was surprised that they had not found her but then realized they were now out of the room

“I think he went that way” Snape’s voices filtered in from the hallway. Hearing the clicks of Flich’s shoes, and Snape’s cloak, Dragon knew they had gone away. Scrambling up, she renewed her search for the potion they were going to use for the prank during the Halloween feast. Brushing away some cobwebs she spotted it sitting on the high shelf just as a cool draft swept through her.

“Oooh! Student out of bed!” hearing Peeve’s taunt she knew that she only had a few seconds to get away before Professor Snape came. Jumping up she swiped at the shelf, causing the nearby bottles to tumble to the ground. Stuffing the prank potion into her pocket she whirled around and snarled “Listen Peeves, if you tell anyone about this, I’ll-” stopping in mid sentence Dragon realized that she could not do anything about it.

Cursing under her breath she prayed that for once, Peeves will keep his annoying mouth shut. She hurtled down the hallway and caught sight of two figures approaching the Potion classroom about ten feet away from her. Stumbling in panic, she knew that Snape will probably put her in detention for the rest of the year for stealing such hard to make potion, she did the first thing on her mind: Play Dead – or in this case, pretend to faint

Sprawled on the cold stone floor she managed to kick the potion bottle under a suit of armor before she heard Snape clear his throat “Now what do we have here” his voice drawled. But then Flich’s voice piped up. “Don’t you think we should take her to the Hospital Wing first? This may be Peeves’s idea of a joke”

That comment completely threw her off. Flich was helping her? Managing to refrain from gasping in disbelief, she could have hugged him right there. Okay, maybe not really. But Dragon could picture a sneer on Snape’s face as he reluctantly agreed although she knew he was probably as surprised as she.

Settling in a bed at the hospital wing she drifted off to sleep as she tried not to imagine what Snape will be telling her…

Halloween is almost upon us, class! Gather round the cauldron and tell a story of the scariest Potions encounter you have ever had! The most spine tingling tale shall be awarded 5 extra points. Tell of the time Snape caught you stealing supplies from his closet, or the time you drank the dark blood red potion...

Once again, there is no word maximum, but I want at least 350 words. This class will be worth 40 points.



Stephy raced on down to the dungeons knowing that she was once again late for potions. Snape isn’t going to be too happy about this. This is my third late this week. Stephy thought as she finally make it on the small floor as the potion’s class room. After falling down twice from her mad dash to class, Stephy finally made it to the door. The yanked it open saying “I’m sorry that I’m late-“ but she was cut off by Snape who said “So you think that it’s cool to keep skipping my class?”


“No Profess-“

“Then why are you late again?”

“I had to get my book sir.” Stephy quickly lied.

“You’re lying” Snape retorted. “As your punishment I think that maybe you should test out my latest potion that I made. The Death Potion” he said as a huge smile appeared on his face, pointing at the potion that was laying on his desk.

“Excuse me sire” Stephy asked amazed.

“Drink it or I will force you to drink it” he screamed as he pulled out his wand from beneath his robes.


Stephy walked over to his desk and picked up the bottle. She then slowly uncorked it while Snape shouted “Hurry up and drink it now. I have class to teach.” Stephy pressed the bottle to her lips and slowly began to drink it. It felt like fire going down her throat but she didn’t say anything to him as she returned to her seat.

“Now start making the potion. I would like to have it before you are to leave” Snape said as a bigger smile appeared on his face.

Stephy quickly started to make the potion not caring if she was making it right. With each ingredient she placed in her cauldron her arms started to feel heavier and her whole body started to shiver. What has that evil man done to me Stephy thought as she bottle some of her finished potion feeling more and more tired. Snape took the bottle from her and without saying one word he wrote on a piece of paper, sealed it magically and said “Now you can go to the Hospital Wing, maybe Madam Promfry can still save” he laughed.

Stephy took the paper and tried to run out of the room but she felt too tired so instead she slowly walked out of the room. By the time she was outside the classroom all she could think about was how she wasn’t going to make it to the hospital wing in time. With each step she took she started to feel more tired and colder.

Finally after what seemed hours, Stephy finally made it to the Hospital Wing where she collapsed on the floor in front of the door. Promfry ran over to her side and took the paper from her hand and quickly read it with a concerned look on her face but by the time she had finished reading it her face a relaxed and she no longer looked concerned. Using a spell she placed Stephy on one of the beds and forced a potion into her mouth and a few minutes later Stephy slowly drifted off…..

….. Stephy woke up a few hours later and she quickly spotted Promfry. “What happened?” Stephy asked as she sat up, feeling once again like herself.

“Snape gave you a Death Potion. No it doesn’t kill the drinker. It just slows down their breathing and their blood flow until it seams like it had stopped. It makes the drinker seam like they are dead when in reality they are just in a deep sleep. It usually wears off in a few hours.” Promfry replied

SO Snape just wanted to give her a little scare. Well it did work after all. There is no why I am going to be late for another one of his classes. Stephy thought to herself.

::Dani stood up after Stephy to tell her story, she smiled at her classmates, wondering what stories they might be remembering, and some probably wondering what her story was going to be. She nodded to no one in particular and began her tale...

::It was a windy day, it had rained. The whole world seemed to be trapped underwater and everything seemed to be moving much slower that usual. Dani was in the dungeon in a detention with Professor Snape, the dirty rotten, scum sucking professor that he is.

"Miss. Sunset," he said in his slow sleazy car sales man voice. "Please take the seat opposite of me."

Dani grunted and sat across from him, a frown etched on her face.

"Now Miss. Sunset that is no way to treat you superior, this is what landed you here; disrespect." He droned.

"I only respect people, who deserve it," Dani muttered, and was shocked when suddenly Snape had his wand under her chin pointed straight at her heart.

"What were you saying Miss. Sunset?" He teased her.

With her eyes wide Dani slowly shook her head, "Nothing Professor, I didn't say nothing."

"That's what I thought," He smirked and pocketed his wand. "Now for you detention; For you disrespect, today you will be helping me with some of the hardest potions to create, and for you latest act of...charm you will be testing them for me so that we know they work."

Dani's eye grew so wide and her jaw dropped slightly, "excuse me?" She said and before she could stop herself the words were out of her mouth.

"Ah, I see we still haven't curved that tongue of yours, alas we shall be curing that."

Dani shuddered unwillingly as Snape got up and grabbed three vials from a shelf on the wall. "Now Miss. Sunset if you can tell me what these potions are I wont make you drink them. Your snide remarks haven't limited you the ability to take notes have they?"

"No sir," She said trying to remember what the first slimy green potion in front of her was called.

"Good then, shall we begin? This first specimen of green color and high viscosity, first created by the wizard known as 'Pengui' what is it called?"

"It's a vial of Juniper Grass?" Dani guessed knowing completely that it would be by some tremendous miracle that she would get it right.

"I'm sorry you are incorrect, it is a vial of Lizard Acid, please add it to the cauldron." Snape said handing her the vial.

Dani was tempted to throw it at the wall but that would only make her punishment worse. She tipped the vial over the cauldron and watched as it met with the liquid already inside. She gulped as the smoke above shine purple before going back to gray.

Snape smiled, "Now Miss. Sunset this bottle of Newt eye balls serves what purpose in magical maladies?"

"The juice of the eyeball put over a wound keeps it infected for weeks." She said wincing already.

"It almost seems like you are trying to get these wrong," he said sighing and then handed her the bottle.

Dani tipped it over the cauldron and returned to face Snape, "Now tell me sunset, what is my first name?"

"Snivelus" She replied hotly.

"Um...no." He handed her a third vial, which Dani poured into the cauldron. The potion issued a loud hiss and a popping sound was heard. Snape turned a wooden spoon 5 times counter clockwise then filled one of the empty vials. "Drink." He told her.

"Um...excuse me?" She said already knowing what was coming next.

Professor Snape grabbed the Vial and Thrust it down her throat, Dani coughed and sputtered for a moment and she screamed aloud as the worst pain that any one person could feel in their lifetime filled her body. She screamed louder and louder, until her body became limp and the ridged, going completely numb.

"Now Miss Sunset what is my first name?"

"Severus." She muttered weakly.

"Very good, Miss Sunset will you ever disrespect me again?"

"Yes," She said but it came out less than a whisper.

"Wrong!" He yelled and pushed more of the liquid down her throat, the pain this time was more intense, and through her tears she saw him adding more ingredients to the potion already brewing. Once her screams subsided slightly Snape pulled her face close to his and asked her one last time.

"Will. You. Ever. Disrespect. Me. Again?!"

'YES!" She screamed back.

This time when the potion was forced into her mouth everything went black.::

"And four weeks later I woke up in the Hospital Wing, Madam Pomfrey told me that Snape was an evil man. She gave me a sucker and now I'm here." Dani said with a smile then took her seat among her classmates.

She felt someone touch her in the back and a question in her ear, "Did you disrespect him again?"

She laughed and whispered back, "Of course."

PostSubject: Re: Spooky Potions   Thu Nov 15 2007, 17:35

Good day to you all. I am here to tell you the terrible tale of "Crastose Enestini".

This all started on the day we were all to go back to school after Christmas holidays. I came downstairs early in the morning, still rather groggy. I was not looking forward to this term. I had not done well in Potions at all, and I was starting to develop something of a fear of Professor Snape.

"Good morning," I said to my family when I got into the kitchen.

"Good morning, Pamela. Your breakfast is on the table. Are all your things packed?" My mother had asked this question twice last night, already. She's such a worrier.

"Yes, mum. Got it done yesterday afternoon." I continued to dig in to my eggs and bacon. "Hey, Alicia, you left some potion simmering in the work room. Do you need that?"

"Oh! You didn't drink any did you?" She asked in a slightly panicked voice.

"Er, no. Why, what is it?"

"Well it's something I'm working on for my NEWT exam. We have to invent a potion. I thought a brain enhancing potion would be appropriate. I named it Crastose Enestini. I rearranged Socrates's and Einstein's names to come up with it. Pretty clever name, eh?"

"Yeah. Cool. Oh, wait I know who you're talking about now. Einstein's that muggle who invented the speed of light or something, right? And I know Socrates was that Greek guy."

"Man, little sis. You need to brush up on your history of magic. 'that Greek guy?' Close enough on the Einstein, thing though. Might be wise to take Muggle Studies in a couple years," Alicia said, a little impatiently. "Anyway, it's much to strong. I need to find a way to dilute it. I'd hate to see how much it would enhance someone's brain if they took it."


Blame it on childish curiosity. Blame it on desperation. I don't know what it was, but I just had to try it. While my parents and Alicia were loading the car, I crept into the family workroom with a goblet. The potion tasted odd. Kind of a mixture of fish and spinach. As soon as I had downed it, I started to relax. My breathing slowed and I just felt so much clearer. "What's so bad about this? I feel great!" I wondered aloud.

My sister's voice came from the hall. "Pamela, you going to help or just let us do all the work?"

As quickly as possible I hid my evidence and ran out the room.

"What took you so long? I swear that girl needs a dose of her own brain enhancement," my sister said as I was fiddling with my trunk.

"What?" I asked a little shocked. She isn't usually this rude to me.

"I asked what took you so long?

"Oh, I...my lock was jammed, but I got it all set. We ready to go?"

"Just waiting on you."

I vaguely registered the strangeness of the conversation, but I figured she just hadn't meant to be rude so she didn't want to repeat it. I walked out the door and went to the car. After loading the trunk I hopped in the back seat with Alicia. For some reason, I my whole family was talking all at once. "Whoa, chill out. I can't understand any of you."

"What are you talking about, Pamela?" My mother asked.

"Ah, nothing. Sorry." [/i]What is going on?

It took me a while to figure out what happened. I doubted it. How could that be possible? Her potion would have to be very strong. They say normal people use about 10% of their brain. If I was reading minds with out a spell, I would have to be functioning at more like 60%. It had to be stress.
I'm worried about this term, that's all.

It took getting out at King's Cross station to realize what I had done to myself. It's usually loud there, but this was ridiculous. After getting through the barrier and onto the train, I endured an afternoon of pain. I couldn't get a compartment to myself. By the time I got to Hogwarts, I had a splitting headache unlike anything I'd ever experienced. Worse than that, I learned much more about the other Gryffindors I sat with than I ever wanted to know. I went up to my dorm the minute I got there and went straight to bed. Thankfully I beat everyone. I must have fallen asleep immediatly, but I had some very weird dreams. I don't want to disturb you to much, so I'll spare you on the details.

I woke up the next morning and went to breakfast. Thankfully the noise in the great hall, was just of the normal sort. No extra thoughts. One day was enough to teach me a valuable lesson. One of the most important ones I have learned here so far. From there on out I just studied and tried harder. No more crazy homemade potions for me.[/i]

Well, I wouldn't call this 'spine tingling' although if you put yourself in my characters point of view it may prove to be a bit scary lol
_______________________________________________________________________

I sat within the dungeons it was dark as always and my potion was not going as planned. I was supposed to be creating some kind of love potion for valentines day, I was real annoyed because I felt it was a lame assignment but I attempted it anyway. The professor seemed to pop up out of seemingly nowhere scolding me for every little thing. The class ended and everyone turned in their potions---except for me. My potion was turning a shade of brown and was expanding rapidly not at all like the bright shade of red that a normal potion would look like. The professor swooped over and flicked his wand at my cauldron vanishing the entire contents. "You will finish this potion for homework tonight, and I expect it done right this time." I rushed out of the class annoyed at my inability to create a satisfactory potion and dreading the potion I will have to create later in the day.

Two hours passed and the remainder of my classes were completed. I rushed up to my dormitory getting to work as soon as I could. It would take me the whole night to make this potion... I gathered all of my required materials and took out my potions book following the instructions step by step.
Wow, I never knew this was so easy without Snape hovering over me I thought to myself as I completed the potion in only twenty two minutes. I left my potion to simmer in the grounds, in an area where it would not be disturbed. After dinner I returned to my hiding place and found the potion to be three quarters drunk. This bothered me, but I still had enough for potions class so I forgot about it until the next morning.

I woke up, and hastily got ready for another day. History of Magic was as boring as usual and Transfiguration was extremely difficult, by Defense Against the Dark Arts, I was ready for a nice break from the castle. I happily walked down to my Care of Magical Creatures Class, but then groaned as I saw a horde of lawn gnomes sitting outside Hagrid's cabin. "All righ' since your firs' years thought we'd go with something easy. Righ' well here we have thirty-four gnomes lets see two per student should....Hagrid's voice trailed off as he looks to me and suddenly I realize all the gnomes staring at me. One of them runs up and hugs me, I look at it, horrified... could it of drank the love potion? Suddenly ten of them leaped on to me trying to hug me, I am quickily overwhelmed. This was the first time I ever saw Hagrid use his crossbow, he was firing at the gnomes to no affect. He tossed it aside and began to wrestle off the gnomes, more came.... I can barely breathe.......

I woke up in the hospital wing a day later my arm was in a cast and Hagrid was standing aside my stretcher. "I'm sorry Kael never seen gnomes act that way before, I could of sworn one of them tried to kiss you!" Hagrid exclaimed. "Hagrid.... I think I accidentally fed them a love potion..." I replied, extremely embarassed by the whole situation. Hagrid began laughing. "you go get some sleep..." Hagrid said. I had the feeling he didn't quite believe me, I didn't care though, I was afraid of what the other students would think.....
