    Oh goodness, they were so little! Nathalie hardly remembered her first year, it felt like so long ago, but look at these little potioneers! So adorable! "Alright Darlings, today you are going to start with an Herbicide Potion! Your time starts now!" This was going to be amusing to watch, she just knew it, but they were just too cute!

    Spryly doubted he was going to get very far, but he thought it was worth trying for the prize. There was a prize wasn't there? He thought he had heard something about a prize. There had better be a prize.

    For now, however, he had to brew a stupid Herbicide potion or he definitely wouldn't be getting a prize unless it was a wooden spoon for coming in last. He sliced and diced and stirred and waved his wand about and eventually he decided he'd done all he could and raised his hand.

    As Potions didn't seem to be a subject he failed miserably at, Simon thought it was a worthwhile area to know something about. This made perfect logical sense.

    Simon began brewing the Herbicide potion as instructed, and raised his hand when he'd finished.
    Elijah didn’t know who this woman was and didn’t know how well he could expect to do today, but he did know that he did not love being called a ‘Darling’. The first year made a face at his cousin before starting to brew his potion, raising a hand when he was done since that seemed to be the thing to do.

    all bow before the glorious mj!
    Bash wasn't sure what was worse - competing against his own cousin or possibly failing in the eyes of his family. He knew his skill in potions wasn't at all grand, however his confidence would not be struck by this fact alone; a smile, of all things, had worked its way onto his face before he could further doubt himself as his eyes met Elijah's upon being called 'darling'.

    Quick hands worked to incorporate all of the necessary ingredients and, once he felt he had done his best, his left arm shot up to notify the woman standing before the group.

    Wonderful Slytherin-y set by BEE!!
    While Edgar wasn't the most sociable type, he really couldn't recognize any of his peers within the competition. Not that he hadn't seen or had classes with them before, just he really had no reason to put names to faces when he figured they would high tail it out of the school when it came to graduation. Why bother putting in the effort if it was all for nothing?

    Regardless, he thought not having ties to any of them would strengthen his ability as any form of competition would only be towards himself. With this in mind, he carefully attempted to brew the assigned potion and, once finished, raised his hand.

    Nathalie thoroughly enjoyed watching the baby potioneers work their magic during the round and it was evident as she kept an eye on them that she kept wanting to interject, but she managed to keep her suggestions to herself.

    When the time was up she went around to investigate their work. "Well brewed everyone, it looks like Mr. Spryly, Mr. Flourish and Mr. Elijah Urqauart will be moving on to brew a  Cure for Boils. You  may begin!"

    Simon was pleased with his success so far. Hopefully he could keep this going. He started brewing the next potion, and raised his hand when finished.
    If he had to be a darling, at least he was a victorious darling, and the only one of the first years still standing. Smugly, Elijah set about brewing his next potion, raising his hand when finished.

    Spryly really wanted to beat Simon Flourish. Like he really wanted to beat him. After much work on his potion, he raised his hand.

    Watching with far more enthusiasm than she probably should, Nat waited less-than-patiently for the wee potioneers to finish. Once they had she checked their success to find the results a little surprising! "Mr. Spryly and Mr. Flourish will move onto the final potion; please brew a Girding Potion, and begin!

    Oh it was on. Not willing to lose to his Ravenclaw nemesis, Spryly set to work after roughly rolling up his sleeves. Eventually he stuck his hand in the air to signal he was done.

    There was no way Simon was losing to Spryly. He wouldn't allow that to happen. He brewed the Girding Potion--not as quickly, but he thought that was because he was taking the time to do it correctly.
    Nathalie watched the boys brew, hovering between keeping an eye on the clock and making sure things were going alright. Finally the young gentlemen were finished and she went to check their potions.

    "And Mr. Spryly is the winner!" She cheered with a wide smile. It was close, but Mr. Spryly was just a smidge more successful!
