It’s fair to say that Satveer had been somewhat distracted over the last few months. He’d kept his head down and focused. Exam prep was in full swing and with it the immeasurable pressure of his success driven, highly expectant, father. Satveer felt that, that same exam prep had also taken its toll on his relationship with Kit. He was still enjoying being with her, she made him happy, but what time they did spend together he felt a little distracted. He was becoming increasingly aware that his distracted behaviour may impact their relationship negatively, but as Kit had given him no indication that she was unhappy, he chose to not bring it up. His assumption that Kit was under similar pressures lent itself well to the elusive elephant in the room. Luckily, the news of his relationship either hadn’t reached his parent’s, or they were choosing to not bring it up in light of his exams. Which ever it was, Satveer was thankful the subject hadn’t been broached, though he felt that conversation was inevitable.

That morning had already been filled with narrowly avoided mishaps. The first being his robes being worn inside out. Luckily he caught a glimpse of the mirror prior to leaving his quarters. Another was his unelected participation in the upper years electives. Walking through the corridors, Satveer had gotten swept up with a crowd (that turned out to be fourth and fifth years) and was almost escorted to the wrong lesson. Only when he passed the practical lab, the site of his intended lesson, did he realise he was in a daze. Satveer had managed to clamber out of the herd and got himself into the lab resembling something of a disheveled version of his brother (had his brother come been a wizard, and attended RMI). His turban was about the only thing to remain tidy.

Satveer parted himself down and found a seat, only to attentively I listen (and discover) that this potions lesson was somewhat of a joke lesson. Whilst it was always a good idea to put one's knowledge to practice, was April fools wasn’t really what he had in mind. Frankly, Satveer felt a little disenfranchised by the whole affair. He felt his time could be better spent elsewhere (that and potions wasn’t really his favourite lesson. Too much like cooking for him).

At the instruction to Scoot Satveer took stock. Kit was already headed into her own project (world), so participation with her was not an option. Unenthused, Satveer squared away his area and made his way to collect some ingredients, muttering under his breath as he did so.


  • Trick up your sleeve? [Potions, I - III] - Professor Rob Hier, Sat Nov 3 12:58
    It wasn’t that Professor Robert Hier had always been a proponent of planning ahead, but if nothing else had taught him that it was a useful application of his energy, raising four children had done... more
    • Yep. Begrudgingly. Yep. - Satveer Mital , Tue Nov 6 06:06
      • Why begrudgingly?? - Sadie Embers, Sun Nov 18 20:48
        Yup, Rob and her mom totally made sense as possible school friends. Sadie already thought this was possible, since he was head of Aquila, played Quidditch, was hilarious, and went to school at the... more
    • Ready to play my trump card - Eugene Hardie , Sun Nov 4 19:16
      Eugene loved robes. They made him feel extra magical and he particularly liked the way they swooshed dramatically when you ran down a corridor. He just wished they were fluffier. Then they’d be even... more
      • Trumps are wild - Elliot Phippen, Mon Nov 5 16:50
        In terms of “classes that really make you feel like a wizard,” Potions was pretty high up there. Astronomy and Cultural Studies were at the very bottom of the list. Even when they talked about... more
        • I'm OK with a little risk - Eugene, Tue Nov 6 19:13
          It was a great colour, green. He’d really come to appreciate it more since being in the green house. Even if all the worst tasting food was green (broccoli, brussel sprouts, mint ice cream) a lot of... more
          • Risky business is what I do - Elliot, Sun Nov 11 12:53
            “Got it,” Elliot agreed readily. Honestly he would’ve said anything to speed up Eugene sharing whatever top-secret information he had, but Elliot was also good with secrets. He loved that feeling you ... more
            • Welcome to the team - Eugene, Sun Nov 18 12:14
              “A spy?” Eugene’s shoulders slumped, and he looked at Elliot, dismayed. He had not had a lot of luck convincing people that an underground network of sinister supernatural beings existed at RMI, and... more
              • Is there a uniform? - Elliot, Tue Dec 4 19:54
                Elliot followed Eugene’s waggling eyebrows to one of the third-years, Anssi. Elliot usually worked with other first years in class—Sadie and Tycho and Grayson and sometimes Gigi, when she wasn’t... more
                • A deerstalker is compulsory - Eugene, Tue Dec 11 05:58
                  The pieces were finally starting to fall into place- well almost . He still did not understand what the ghosts were up to but Elliot had given him his first solid lead. “I didn’t know RMI had secret... more
                  • What about a trenchcoat? - Elliot, Fri Dec 14 22:39
                    Could he show Eugene where the secret passageways were? On the one hand it had been A Whole Thing for Elliot to find the passageways on his own. There had been a bet with Sadie and everything. Eugene ... more
                    • Optional - Eugene, Sun Dec 30 15:29
                      “She BIT you,” Eugene repeated, voice rising shrilly above the noisy classroom. “Why did she bite you?” Kit had always seemed fairly normal to Eugene. She was fun, and smart, and not at all like his... more
                      • Do I need a magnifying glass? - Elliot, Mon Jan 14 09:52
                        “Because she appointed herself captain of the Morality Police,” Elliot spiced up the answer to Eugene’s question. Kit had been very clear that she was biting him because he had sworn in her presence. ... more
    • Deciding. Debating. De...stroying? - Katherine Kendrick, Sun Nov 4 17:11
      It wasn’t that Kit was every any good at following directions, but she wasn’t typically intentionally bad at it. Sometimes it was a misunderstanding between her and the directionser, although more... more
      • Derailing - Jesse Keller, Sun Nov 4 17:56
        Lots of strange things happened at magic school. Or, Jesse could infer that from his own experiences but he could not verify the accuracy of the statement. What would be more accurate would be to... more
        • Do you think so? - Kit, Thu Dec 13 08:22
          Kit was pretty sure she’d never once worked with Jesse but she was also pretty sure that she would probably forget if she had, so maybe she had. Jesse seemed like a nice, boring person which would... more
          • I feel it's inevitable - Jesse, Sun Dec 16 16:09
            Kit claimed to be good at potions, refuting Jesse’s suggestion that the opposite was true, and that perplexed him. Jesse knew he should believe Kit, because she was the person under discussion, so... more
            • Let me focus my laserbeams - Kit, Tue Dec 18 11:14
              “Good,” Kit said smugly. Jesse didn’t swear at home, he didn’t even say ‘shut up’ which was totally something that Kit had said to Marissa before when she was mad. The sisters didn’t fight very... more
              • I really don't think you should - Jesse, Sun Dec 30 16:45
                Kit seemed appeased by Jesse’s answer that he was not allowed to use cuss words at home. He was not at home when he was at school, obviously, and so in the parent-less space that was the whole... more
    • My sleeves are not suited for concealment - Georgina Philpott, Sun Nov 4 16:23
      While she wasn’t one to invest a great deal of energy into such redundant considerations as what her favourite class might be, Georgina nevertheless had a preference for her potions classes above all ... more
      • No one's questioning that - Joseph Blair, Mon Nov 5 22:19
        From the first he’d learned he needed a cauldron for school, Joey had decided that Potions was gonna be ripe. Chemistry had already been his second-favourite of the sciences (his first-favourite was... more
        • Hey I have layers! - Gigi, Tue Nov 6 16:42
          Joey agreed to get the slugs. Georgina grinned at him from between her elbows. She didn’t know her yearmate very well yet - and she’d dropped judging people on their prevalence of hugs from relatives ... more
          • Joey was a little thrown off by her mention of ‘suits’, cos it wasn’t as if many people here even wore suits. Most of them went for robes instead which he assumed was equal hands because Wizard... more
            • You saying I'm not great at his? - Gigi, Thu Nov 22 08:41
              Okay then, Joey had a point about the staff realising that Rob was entirely capable of convincing - even encouraging his whole beginner class to brew potions for the sole purpose of pranking older... more
              • Gigi's laughter didn't pass on any real sign of her opinion. Whether she agreed or not with his assessment of how foolishly rebellious it'd be to make the Deputy Headmaster puke slugs, she clearly... more
                • Apparently the language barrier worked both ways, although Joey was quicker to figure out Gigi’s British-isms than she was to translate his Down Under slang. It wasn’t surprising, considering how... more
    • This is just what I needed - Andrew Tennant, Sun Nov 4 15:58
      Things had been weird. Dade Dakota was a girl now, Remington was having dating drama, Kit and Darlene were kind of getting along… everything was upside down and Drew felt weird about it in different... more
      • I want to play too! - Mikael Lundqvist, Sat Nov 17 00:07
        “Warts?” Anssi echoed thoughtfully. Having been in the middle of scooping a generous portion of rodent tails, he paused briefly to shoot a sneaky glance at where Malachi was sitting and imagined him... more
        • Good old Anssi. Drew had had his doubts about bringing him into the self-defense club group. They’d wanted Ruben as their sponsor, and he’d been frigging great at it, but the condition was that his... more
