    Dick Swigglington knew a whole bunch about potions. He loved potions so damn much that his job involved potions and his wife was a bottle of amortentia. Just kidding, he was a confirmed bachelor. Anywhozle, he was judging a potion competition and that was fun, nay, super fun because he loved potions that much.

    "Your first potion to brew is Amortentia. Raise your hand when you're done."

    Hope had thought that joining the potions competition would be a lovely bit of fun. Listening as they were told which potion they were to brew, Hope got started once they were bid to begin. Once she had finished, she raised her hand as the moderator had instructed.

    Emerald wanted nothing more than to best her peers in this tournament. She saw each of them as a hindrance to her success and would stop at nothing to trample them all on her path to victory. The first step to this achievement however involved concocting up some amortentia, so she worked hastily to brew the liquid and, once finished, raised her arm and held it sternly until observed by the judge.

    Eloise had thought it was probably worthwhile to test her potions skills somewhere outside of class. She set about attempting to brew Amortentia as instructed and raised her hand when she'd finished.

    Once she was told to start, Trina blocked out any noise and focused on the task. She hadn't brewed potions in almost a year, why had she thought it would be a good idea to enter the competition? Once she was finished,  she raised a hand.

    Amortentia was a tricky potion to brew, and so it was cautiously that Castor set about working on his own. It did not trouble him to be the last one finished; what the seventh year cared most about was that he had done well. Somewhat timidly, he raised his hand for inspection.
    castor has several smallpox scars on his face and body that he kept hidden from years 2-4, but he is no longer self-conscious about them. your character might notice this change.

    There was a vast array of different interpretations of Amortentia, some definitely smelled sweeter than others. Miss Winthrop's was giving off a dangerously pungent aroma which seemed to have left its brewer conscious, but so dazed that she seemed not to be responding to any stimuli. Miss Mintumble's was far too thick and was spitting dangerously at those in the immediate vicinity. Meanwhile, Miss Crawford, Miss Weasley, and Mr. Allaway appeared to have successfully brewed Amortentia, although there was considerable variation in quality between them.

    "Mr. Allaway, Miss Weasley, and Miss Crawford will now be brewing a love potion antidote."

    Oh yay, she had made it past the first round. Hope was definitely pleased with herself but she didn't let herself get over confident. Brewing the antidote that they had been assigned to brew, Hope raised her hand once she had finished.

    Even had the judge not confirmed Castor’s success, the smells of leather, grass, and soap wafting to his nostrils did. Very good, the Gryffindor thought, pleased with himself—but he could hardly pick now to rest on his laurels.

    Diligently, the wizard returned to work, this time striving to brew an antidote to his earlier concoction. Upon conclusion, he raised his hand once more.

    Emerald was glad she had passed the first found and was more determined than ever to continue this streak of hers. The potion she was to create was one she felt she would never use or want to have used upon her. Had she been so lucky to have come in contact with any form of a love potion, she would have wasted little time in making the most of it. Regardless, she worked to finish her creation and raised her hand once complete.

    It would seem that luck was with him today. With great concentration, the Gryffindor set about crafting his third and final potion, raising a hand when finished.
