:OTW: Sleep and Fear What You See Behind Your EyesHearing that she could administer the potion to herself got Sangeen all kinds of excited about this assignment. Too bad she wasn't able to finish it last semester, she just lost track of some of the ingredients a few times. There, of course, was the key ingredient, the melatonin, but she needed more than just that to be able to have it affect her. She'd never slept before, not really, so this was a very exciting prospect.:OTW: Sleep and Fear What You See Behind Your Eyes by =lizziecat1279
After spending a few weeks of mixing together the different herbs that would allow her to drink the potion, as well as secure a few blood bags from the infirmary for the final mix (and grinding up some glass into powder because that stuff was so good), she was finally ready to take the potion. She pours the blood into the powdery mix in her potions cup and once the bag is empty, she sits back on her bed and drinks the whole thing right down.
Immediately she's hit by a foreign sensation. A sensation of being weighed down, but also similar to when she feels stretc

So I accidentally deleted the only copy of the journal that I had, so I'm having to rewrite everything So that's why things are different or shorter. The assignments are still the same though! Though with the way that this could go, some small specifics might be different. I am sorry for that.
Unlike the last time they entered the classroom, the headless body is gone, with the head being there instead. She watches the students as they come in, turning her head occasionally to make sure she gets a good view of the students. It seems she's a bit disgruntled overall, though a few students in particular she seems pleased with.
The instant the last student has seated themself, she starts speaking.
"Overall I have been disappointed in you as a class. For the few of you who have turned in assignments, congratulations, your reward is the knowledge that you have gained from your endeavors. For everyone else, I do wish your patients luck, since they may or may not be in accomplished hands."
101: Introduction to Medicine
"Up until now you have dealt with either preexisting diseases or used preexisting cures. For this assignment you will be tested on your knowledge of creating your own recipe to cure an ailment. The only stipulation for this is that you can't use any modern medicine, otherwise you can use any plant or other remedy you find in the infirmary, forest, or greenhouses, provided you can survive the latter two. For extra credit, include a reason for each ingredient and why they are combined in that way!"
((Your students need to make a non-traditional (either herbal or simply unconventional) recipe to heal a disease of their choice. Include an explanation for why those ingredients were used in particular.))

"I've noticed that the both of you don't seem to be too good at categorizing diseases, even when they are affecting you. You seem to have recovered nicely, though I suppose it was a nonlethal illusion so something would have been seriously wrong with you already if you weren't able to come to class today! Fortunately for the both of you, I have a bit of a different assignment today." She makes a movement towards the "teacher" side of the desk with a flick of her head, "In the top left drawer you will find two lists. Go ahead, get them out." She waits for one of the students to open it up and bring them back to where she's placed. "On these lists are features of two diseases or afflictions that affect people. Dakoeda, you get the first list, Elizabeth, the second list is yours. All you have to do is puzzle out what affliction is described and then explain how you came to that conclusion. That's all."
~Fever and night sweats
~Bone or joint pain
~Feeling very tired or weak
~Coughing, especially at night
~Shortness of breath
~Chest tightness, pain, or pressure
((Match the description of the disease to the disease itself. Fairly straightforward))

104: History of Medicine
"You'll be delighted to know you'll no longer be dealing with bubonic plague! For your last assignment you get the freedom to research any ancient plague or general disease outbreak. You may choose normal old human diseases or you may go with more magical outbreaks, such as the outbreak of werewolf attacks that resulted in widespread lycanthropy in the . Have fun with it!"
((Research an ancient (pre-modern medicine) outbreak. List any causes as well as what eventually "cured" it.))

202: Physical Injuries
"Up until now you have dealt exclusively with external injuries-though I suppose you could have attempted to fix an internal injury for your first assignment-so for this assignment you will be dealing with an internal injuries. It's been known to the general medical community that internal injuries tend to be harder to treat for a myriad of reasons. You're going to find out these reasons if you do your assignment properly. If you look behind this desk you'll notice a screen. Go behind that screen and you'll see a gurney with one of those living dolls on it. This living doll has been subjected to many internal injuries of differing kinds that you'll get to deal with. It won't start to 'die' until you begin working on it, but your goal is to keep it 'alive' as long as possible if you are unable to properly treat all the injuries. It should be an interesting assignment!"
((Try to fix the doll's internal injuries in a test designed to show how hard it is to treat internal injuries.))
