Anita Tippet
A Badly Brewed Potion
Fri Aug 1, 2014 12:25

Sorry about that, with Anita's brother. I've changed it on her character sheet I drew up, so that way her brother is attending a different school.

Thanks for the tip about the html tags.

Anita could smell the unpleasantness of the potion a few seats down. Then other cauldrons started getting a mixture of strange smells. Well, she did the first part correctly; that was all she was concerned about for now. Now she had to wait forty minutes until the brew was ready for Part 2. Oh boy. She had to get the potion right this time, or have it blow up in her face like her classmates.

She remembered what Professor Yu said very clearly to the class, "a potion is only as strong as what goes in it". Anita couldn't help but feel that Professor Yu was right. As the time passed, Anita smelt something funny... it had to be the potion. She did everything right: crushed the Bezoar and added four measures to the cauldron, mixed in the dittany. It was the dittany; it had to be.

Anita would have to ask for help. She looked around and eventually saw Professor Yu wandering around the classroom. Other cauldrons were changing colors.

"Was this how it was done?" asked Anita.

Then she noticed her potion was changing into a yellowish tea color. Was that good or bad? She did not know which it was.

          OOC - Good job, both on the post and on catching your own mistake. As Jamie had called out to another student 'a few seats along' you could have chosen for this to be Anita, and to have responded to... more

            OOC: Thanks. Yeah, I didn't think about that. I know this is for practice, but at least it's giving me the feel for what will happen for real. So, I guess classes start September 1st for the IC. Then ... more
