Topaz Brockert, Aladren
Do you realize what you've done?
Sat Sep 8, 2018 11:27

It had been fairly recent that the entire school had found out about Cleo James being a half-veela and Topaz found this utterly fascinating. She had many times experimented on less advanced life forms such as small animals, house-elves and her younger siblings, now here was an opportunity for her to try out things on a half-veela. All the Aladren had to do was figure out who Cleo was-she knew Emerald would never tell her but maybe she could trick Ruby somehow-and devise an experiment as well. Of course, she would have to figure out a control human too which she still had those Pecaris in mind for. And she'd have to get the school elves to help which they had to since she was the Headmaster's granddaughter.

In the mean time, Topaz was really looking forward to Potions. She'd already been able to do this some before school, concocting different ways to dose raccoons and squirrels for her taxidermy as well as seeing how the potions affected her siblings, cousins and house elves. Potions had to be one of her favorite subjects. Plus maybe she could spike Cleo too.

The fact that Professor Brooding wrote "Applied Potions Making" on the board thrilled Topaz further. That just had to mean that they'd be using their potions right? Applying them in some practical way?

She was disappointed, however, to hear what the professor had in mind. Cooking ? Menial house-elf work? Did Professor Brooding not appreciate her genius? Understand that Topaz was meant to do better, more important, more interesting things? That she had great contributions to make and that she couldn't be wasting her time on cooking?

But then the Aladren realized something. What better way to test potions on people then to slip them into their food? Which was what Topaz planned anyway, she just hadn't intended to make the food herself.

Unfortunately, Professor Brooding wanted them to worry about nutritional content. Ugh. Why would Topaz care if something had the right amount of carbs and proteins when she was going to slip in herbs that would make someone itchy? She supposed the easiest thing to do was to just make a stew and place in the ingredients in that.

Topaz got what she needed food wise from Professor Brooding and what she needed potion wise from her kit and began to work on her dish.

            Allegra replied. "I'm not completely sure but I hope so, I picked a book meant for beginners. I mean, generally cook books do so. All you have to do is follow a recipe. It's sort of like Potions.Only ... more

                    "That's okay!" Evelyn said, bcaktracking. She supposed Julius was probably either highly sheltered from confections, or his family was simply above the gooey treat. "It's krispie cereal and... more
