Hello, Potions students!

Welcome to class! This thread is where you will be posting your introductions, which count as part of Extra Credit One! Since it's worth 10 points, please try to make sure you cover enough to actually earn those points... just saying "Hi, my name is ______" won't cut it ;)!

That being said... hi, I'm Kim Alting! I am a Third Year Gryffindor and I will be your student teacher for this class. This is my first term attempting to teach classes! I am really looking forward to all of your submissions and I hope you're all looking forward to the lessons!

I'll be taking classes, too, of course! I am taking five classes: Advance Care of Magical Creatures, Animagus 101, Apparition Licence Class, Puzzles 101 and WOMBAT. I am also a co-head of HOLLERS and a Prefect for my house.

In real life, I am a university student pursuing a graduate degree in Pharmacy. In my spare time I enjoy watching series, crafting, and listening to music. My favourite colour is pink.

*waves to Kim*

Hey guys! My name is Patrick James and I am a Gryffindor :D

I've been on HOL for about 6 years now (still in my Second Year, because life. :(). I love quidditch and have played for Gryffindor before and every summer in the Summer Quiddtch League (definitely not good but I still love playing it nonetheless xD) I really encourage all new HOLers to try out quidditch! The other classes that I am taking are Apparition License Class, Quidditch - The Wizarding Way, The Battle of Hogwarts, and The Maurauders 101.

IRL, I am a high school student who loves soccer and plays guitar and have been doing so for 8 years.

Good luck Kim, I'm sure you'll handle this class very well indeed ^_^

Hey fellow potioneers!

My name is Echo Stepstone and I am a 1st year Gryffindor student.. I never knew about HOL, previous 'virtual Hogwarts' have been pretty terrible but this one is amazing!! :D :D :D

Wand - Beech Wood with a Phoenix Feather Core 12 ¾" and Pliant Flexibility
Patronus - Hippogriff
(Which I love!!)

I'm studying 5 classes: Charms, Flying, Potions of course, The Darks Arts and Transfiguration!
So far I am enjoying all my classes very much!

Despite only being a 1st year I would love to teach a class as soon as I can, you are doing such a great job Professor!

Hello my potion-making friends!

I'm Amanda, Third Year Gryffindor, been on HOL for quite a number of years as well but like Patrick, life. *sighs*

Anyhow, I am trying my best to be back and active as much as possible, so I'm taking 5 classes this term - Apparition License, Beyond Hogwarts, Fantastic Worlds and Where to Find Them, History of Hogwarts: The Castle, and of course, Potions.

I've never taken a Potions class on HOL before, and this one looked quite promising so I chose it. Looking forward to completing the class!

In real life I am still finding my way, and I constantly wish I have a time-turner.

Hi, Blue Ebon here. I am a first year Ravenclaw. My favorite color is blue. I'm taking five classes, Charms, Divination, Palmistry and Orientation. Not so sure that was a good idea. I'm looking forward to see what else there is to HOL.

Hi Everyone! My name is Tessie and I'm new to HOL...and the whole virtual Hogwarts thing in general, so I'm pretty excited to see how this all goes! :)

I'm a first year Gryffindor and I'm only taking 2 classes, Potions and Marauders 101. Since I've never done this type of thing before I didn't want to sign up for too much and not be able to keep up. So we'll see how this all goes this semester.

I'm really looking forward to this whole experience and I hope everyone has a great semester!

Hi everyone! I'm a 6th year Ravenclaw Prefect and HOL Head Student. While you will rarely (Okay never) find me on the Quidditch Pitch, I do enjoy the 'artsy' side of HOL such as Art Department and Library contests. I have even had a hand in contributing to some of the books found in the HOL Library over the years.

I'm a Student Teacher and have been since my 2nd year, although the classes I am teaching this year are very different from the ones I started out with, but who knows, I may bring the older ones back in the future. I do love teaching, and plan on continuing on as a HOL Professor upon graduation.

I am a Ravenclaw, and proudly so, but I am equally proud that my blue/bronze robes are emerald green. I consider myself that rare (or not so rare) breed of animal known as the "Slytherclaw", and it is only by the whim of the Sorting Hat that I ended up in Ravenclaw at all. Admittedly, I was a bit surprised, but all things considered it has worked out rather well.

The other classes I am taking this term are Animagus 101, Dance Academy-Ballet, Dueling 101, and Famous Witches and Wizards in History. Quite diverse, I know. Blame it on my Aquarian nature.

In 'real life', I am a retired fire dispatcher/firefighter, happily married to my Muggle husband. If you see Lavinia Rookwood wandering around, be sure to give her a wave; she is my 'real life' daughter and the one responsible for getting me into Harry Potter in the first place! I enjoy playing Sims and Guild Wars, and am absolutely totally obsessed with The Walking Dead and Doctor Who.

Hey everyone!

I'm the sterotypical quiet Ravie, who's often too lost in books to make it out to the Qudditch pitch or other things, though I do try to join in alot of events. And I do alot of classes, so many that this year, I've decided to teach one! I'm currently teaching Animagus 101 and working out a sequel to the class. Even though I had some hiccups with the first term, I'm loving teaching and I'm thinking I'm going to go the professor route when it's all said and done. After all, I've only got one more year after this!

Besides taking this class, I'm taking Dance Academy-Ballet, Dueling 101, Beyond Hogwarts, and Dreamology 101. Definitely a mixed bag, but hey, variety is the spice of life, isn't it?

In real life, I'm an aspiring writer (who needs to make more time to write!) and a little addicted to my phone. :P Like Ari, I'm an avid Whovian and Walking Dead fan (she got me into Doctor Who, so it makes up for me dragging her into Harry Potter.) I also play Guild Wars 2 and Sims quite a bit as well.

Hey fellow students!! My name is Ainsley and I am a first year Ravenclaw! I chose this class as I have always had a love for potions and think that the art of potion making is so beautiful, so I am so excited to begin!! I am also taking Forensic Anthropology and the Hobbit classes this term. I am really loving the classes so far and enjoying them immensely. A few fun facts about me include: my fave colour is orange and I am a part of the generation that grew up with the Golden Trio year for year when they were going through Hogwarts. I have traveled to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando and plan on travelling back very soon. Untuln then, so happy to be in the class! :)

Hi, my name is Livian Videl Silver, but just call me Livian. I've been a student here at HOL for many many years, but had breaks in between, but always find myself coming back to the welcoming castle. I love Potions, and like taking a Potions class whenever possible. Other classes I am taking are Dance Academy, Beyond Hogwarts, Mazes and Auror Training.
In real life I write contracts for my day job but in my time off I like to cosplay and take pictures of my posed Monster High dolls. Yes, I am an adult collector.
