Du bist großartig

It didn't seem like Johanna Leonie thought snake raising and venom selling sounded suspicious, so that was a good turn of events. Still she wasn't going to hold her breath on any adult Hexenmeister 'getting on great' with a family of German healers. Especially one that specialized in venomous snakes. Most of the assassinations attributed to mom and dad were poisonings. Though admittedly, most of those had used plant based poisons from flowers grown in their garden ("Do NOT put any of the plants out here in your mouth, sweetie" had been one of the very first rules she had learned as a toddler), rather than snake venom, but still.

Hilda laughed a little bit at the idea that she'd be any good at potions based on the fact that Uncle Karl sold snake based ingredients. Which wasn't to say she hadn't picked up some brewing skills, but they hadn't come from Karl. "Not really. Some crushed scales might come up in first year, but snake parts aren't really the most common ingredients, and even if they were, Uncle Karl sells them, he doesn't brew them. I'm better set for Care of Magical Creatures than potions."

She gave Johanna Leonie an encouraging smile, "But don't worry too much, there's a second year named, um, Katerina Vor-something-that-sounds-very-Russian who speaks a little bit of German, and she's a Teppenpaw, so she'll probably be able and willing to help us out when we have trouble." That was definitely going to be a when, not an if, in Hilda's case. "And my textbook is in German, so that'll help a lot. And Heinrich says the potions mistress here labels her ingredients in like a million different languages." Technically, Heinrich had told her the specific languages that they were labelled, in but Hilda couldn't remember them all, and there had been a lot. A million was close enough.

    Johanna Leonie was pretty sure Uncle Karl sounded like a badass. "It sounds like they'd get on great!" she said said, thinking how excited her parents would be to find a good source of venom and... more

        "I guess that's true," Johanna Leonie laughed, glad that Hilda seemed so easygoing. "Care of Magical Creatures is one of the ones I'm looking forward to the most!" she said, excited that she'd... more

          Hilda nodded in agreement that Care of Magical Creatures was one of the more interesting classes she was looking forward to. Less so herbology, but she nodded anyway in support of Johanna Leonie's... more

            Johanna Leonie's eyes widened at the mention of so many other languages. Even if it was only a few students at the school who spoke these other languages, it felt good to know that there were others... more

              Hilda was tempted - sorely tempted - to not say anything now that she knew Johana Leonie was from a remote enough town that she may - possibly - not have heard about the trial after all. But somebody ... more
