Cue the third infected post to get you sick

Zevalyn loved potions. It was easily her favorite class, if only because it involved such scientific processes as measurement and calculated timing. Sometimes her other classes had moments of scientificity (see, she was getting to be a great witch, she could conjure up new words!) but potions had it all the time. Granted it resulted in effects that would have baffled most scientists, but the process was there, and it was comforting.

She was nearly beaming at the professor today when she found out they were actually going to calculate dosing formulas. Sometimes, just sometimes, it seemed like the universe was trying to make it up to her for throwing her into this weird world where so much of physics just flew right out the window, probably by using a leviosa family charm.

Even the small explosion behind her did nothing to dampen her spirits. Honestly, she was starting to get used to things just randomly blowing up, getting set on fire, or floating away these days. It was weird, but seemed mostly harmless.

She was in the process of writing up a hypothesis (because if they were being scientific, it was just good and proper to write up a hypothesis) when her quill abruptly vanished right out of her hand. Mostly harmless, yes, but quite annoying.

She looked up and glared about, trying to see if anyone was laughing at her who might be a good candidate to go all prefectly upon, but there didn't seem to be anyone meeting this description. "Someone vanished my quill!" she griped to her nearest neighbor. Vanishing was a pretty high level skill, and didn't even show up in the Intermediate curriculum, so it almost had to be a particularly talented fifth year. She looked around suspiciously for Jozua, as she knew he did some advanced spells in Dueling Club sometimes and had been more than a bit of trouble this year already, but he seemed to be absent today.

Irritable but determined to get back to her more pleasurable task at hand, she looked for another quill, but her spares were all Vanished too.

She frowned and looked around again. Maybe he was hiding while he did his tricks. "Have you seen Jozua today?" she questioned her neighbor. Then she saw an unfamiliar quill sitting right next to her paper on her desk. "Ah! You had one! Thank you," she told her neighbor, for providing it to her, even though they hadn't. But she had had years of practice not noticing her own accidental magic and attributing it to other people. She took it up, gripping it tightly so nobody could steal this one.
