01-17-2012, 06:26 AM
Due: April 2, 2012
Withdraw Date: April 2, 2012 (Let me know.)
Swapping: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Mediums: Any

"You are here to learn the subtle science and exact art of potion-making," he began. He spoke in barely more than a whisper, but they caught every word -- like Professor McGonagall, Snape had the gift of keeping a class silent without effort. "As there is little foolish wand-waving here, many of you will hardly believe this is magic. I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses.... I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death -- if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach."

And don't be a Weasley:

Potions (http://www.hp-lexicon.org/magic/potions/potions-a.html)

Have fun and be creative! Remember: there's no right or wrong interpretation, just please send in your best work only! Please follow standard ATC protocol: Cards need to be the correct size, well constructed so that nothing is falling off, and must follow the theme. No flimsy cards, please. If your cards do not fit the criteria, they will be returned at your own expense for replacement if there is time. I will not accept a sticker or a single collage image stuck randomly onto a card as a submission. Cards will be swapped like for like as best I can, in terms of quality. You may receive a variety of media in your returns, depending on the submissions received.

Going Postal!
We aren't going to limit international players, but please include IRCs, stamps equal to the postage you paid, or well-concealed US dollars because our funds are limited. Repeat, just for clarity: Everyone needs to send return postage in order to play, thank you! Please do not send SASE unless you're in Canada, as US postage DOES NOT work from here.
Canadian players: Canadian stamp
US players: $1.00,
International: $1.75 Canadian postage or $2 in US or Canadian funds.
If your cards are heavy or you're sending more than 3, please add extra postage to accommodate.

As everyone says, an extra card on theme is wonderful, but certainly not mandatory nor expected for participation.

Do note that we are in Canada, and allow enough time for your cards to arrive. That pesky border can add a few extra days. Also, if you must drop out, please let me know as soon as you can so that I know not to wait for your cards--this can hold up everyone else's fun. Cards must arrive on time (or early!), must all be in sleeves, and should be your best effort. Remember to write your screen name on your card back so people know who to thank and I can properly sort them.

Please include a filled-out address label and I will supply the return envelope. NO SASE please, unless you're in Canada. We cannot mail out with anything but Canadian postage. Please don't send those tiny address labels, as Canada Post goes into convulsions about that.

Amortenia: Kheelan 1/31
First In: mdkragen 2/4

Please PM me for the addy when you are ready to mail out.
Thanks all!

01-17-2012, 05:15 PM
Oh dear...already?

*chuckle*Okay, sign me up please...and I'll try not to blow anyone up XD

01-18-2012, 07:23 AM
Gotcha, Kheelan!

01-19-2012, 01:28 PM
Oh I will have to lurk and make my cards in a secret room and keep my fingers crossed I can get dollar bills in time, luckily I have a little while ;)

01-19-2012, 06:34 PM
Oh yes, quite awhile, pixiecorpse. ;)

01-27-2012, 03:02 AM
How is everyone doing? Do we need a *Contest*? :D
Since Valentines is coming...how about an Amortentia?

01-27-2012, 04:59 AM
Add me to the class

01-27-2012, 04:31 PM
Will do, Nikkiarts. :)

01-28-2012, 02:06 PM
Well, I already took the Charm class, so I think now itīs time for the potions. Please sign me up:D

01-28-2012, 03:33 PM
*has her quill write you in*

01-28-2012, 06:03 PM
*watches the quill jump and scrawl papersaga on the scroll*

01-31-2012, 02:43 AM
Like I don't have a million and one things I need to work on...but dang it, this idea latched onto my brain and wouldn't let go.

So here is your Amortentia...Poor CrookShanks


01-31-2012, 02:46 AM
Awww! So much awesome on there. Snape batting Ron on the head is brilliant.

01-31-2012, 10:48 AM
Oh dear, poor crookshanks indeed. That rat is not his type at all. Great card!

02-01-2012, 12:17 AM
That's so awesome!

02-04-2012, 02:58 AM
First cards in from mdkragen! Lovely, LOVELY cards, these! <3

They are. I licked them, so they're mine now.

02-06-2012, 07:01 PM
So... anyhow... Hope I didn't scare anyone away. Phrixy asked me to post my card I'd done but I don't like only posting one. They seem lonely. So I made it some friends and now I can post it.

These are a bottle of felix, amortentia, and a potions cupboard full of 'stuff.'

02-06-2012, 07:14 PM
I have to say, I watched those potions being crafted and they are very, very good. Very shiny and sparkly...I mean, well prepared. >.>

SPECTACULAR cards, icekat.
I particularly like your cupboard full of stuff.
Oh that my cupboard was that organized!

And please sign me up. I have been lurking for almost a month, so I better get my potion book out and make something.

02-07-2012, 02:06 AM
Very good! Welcome to the class!

My cards went out to you in todays mail.

02-09-2012, 08:09 PM
Joyous! I'll be waiting for them :)

02-09-2012, 08:26 PM
Thanks, Vicki! Glad you're joining us (she said, as though it were her own swap).

02-16-2012, 03:57 PM
And Vicki's cards have arrived! Professor Snape is impressed.

Vicki Z
02-16-2012, 04:25 PM
Can't get much better praise than that!:D

Just finished mine:

02-20-2012, 01:14 PM
Those are great, Evalila!

02-20-2012, 06:46 PM
I've decided which ones I'm doing, started on one, SKELE-GRO, and am dreaming up how I'll do the others.

02-21-2012, 02:01 AM
Done! Here are the results, can you guess all of the potions?


02-21-2012, 04:04 AM
*Lurking in the shadows avoiding Snape's sight*

02-21-2012, 03:30 PM
Those are fantastic, ArtDuJunque! Professor Snape especially likes the individual bottles. If you blew them yourself he might be interested in ordering some in bulk.

Also, DreamingFox, the only fox in Snape's lab is a dead one...so best to change back and come forward. >.>

02-21-2012, 04:29 PM
I must admit the house elves did most of the glass blowing but they followed my blueprints perfectly. They are always so happy when I give them extra tasks.

i'm no good at animagus, anyhow... :)
Just need to see if i can come up with some ideas, to make worthy cards before entering! (i don't think i've drawn a potion before even, at least i don't remember it.) And to finnish up the cards on my plate now(i know there's alot of time but i'm being extra critical of myself at the moment), before new obligations.

02-23-2012, 12:52 AM

He's just touchy about pets in the lab, after so many shenanigans from the Gryffindors and stray hairs falling in potions.

02-23-2012, 03:54 PM
Very good! I'll be watching for them! :)

02-26-2012, 08:38 PM
IceKat's cards are in! Completing the collection was an impish cauldron bubbling over with green fog. Very neat.

02-27-2012, 08:23 PM
Evalila's cards are in today! Very nice depictions and ingredient gathering.

03-06-2012, 09:59 PM
Papersaga's awesome Potion vial cards are in! Very neat and clever!

03-08-2012, 09:43 AM
Can do, TianaRose!

03-14-2012, 06:07 PM
ArtduJunque's lovely cards arrived! Thanks for the extras!

03-17-2012, 11:26 PM
Working on my potions cards tonight... I was searching for Snape and found this: http://fancy-less.deviantart.com/art/Dress-Up-Severus-Snape-170000303 XD

03-18-2012, 04:46 PM
Can you imagine if it was a magical paper doll and Snape found you playing with it in class? 0.0

03-20-2012, 11:20 PM
Wow, I really need to get mine done because there are some awesome cards coming in. Just today, an owl all the way from Cali. flew in and dropped off TianaRose's cards. I don't know if she put them up, but they are gorgeous.

03-21-2012, 08:21 AM
Hehe, charmed paper dolls. I'm picturing the pixie incident in defence against the dark arts. Only Snape would just inciniratethe paper dolls, maybe even the pixies.

03-28-2012, 10:54 AM
Yeah, I don't think he would put up with any nonsense. T.T

*snickers quietly* So, almost at the due date. How excited are we? I know -I'm- excited!

04-04-2012, 05:51 PM
Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know I didn't fall off the face of the planet. My computer is malfunctioning, but I will try to keep you up to date. Nothing in the mail today. I'm waiting until Friday, then swapping out this weekend. Yay!

04-06-2012, 01:39 AM
Kheelan's cards have come in the mail today! (Thursday...I know, it's late.) All of them are gorgeous. I think Professor Snape absconded with them. >.>

Also, this weekend is a long one in Canada, with Good Friday and Easter Monday having the post offices (and most other things) closed. I will wait until Tuesday to swap out and have these on the way to all of you lovelies on Wednesday at the latest.

04-08-2012, 03:19 PM
Have my cards arr'd yet Phrixy???I hope they get there in time.

04-12-2012, 07:07 PM
Update: No other cards have arrived. As I would not be able to mail them out tonight, I am waiting for tomorrow's mail, then they have to go. Hopefully your cards will come, catladybj, but if not, I can't wait any longer.

04-14-2012, 05:24 AM
Nothing came today. .-. As there's no mail delivered tomorrow (4/14), thems the brakes.
Cards are being swapped out now and will be sent later today (4/14).

04-15-2012, 03:21 PM
For those of you who can't get enough fantasy jump on over and check out my first swap!
6 spots left! Hurry. Hurry.

04-21-2012, 01:31 PM
I got my cards when Phrixy swapped out, but I've been too sick to think about it since then. Sorry! But thanks to Phrixy for the fun swap, and Papersaga for the Time Travel Potion, MDKragon for the Prof Snape card, and Kheelan for the Amortentia potion!

05-05-2012, 12:22 PM
Got my cards!!! Thanks so much Phrixy for hosting! Thanks so much Vicki Z for the amortentia potion, mdkrayon for the bubbly cauldron, and Evalila for the polyjuice potion!
