Well, This Is Awkward

Friday, 11/29/2250 – By Rebecca Green.

Rhea hurt all over; that was the first thing she noticed. The floor beneath her was freezing, but that was normal. Every time the full moon rose, she would awake with goosebumps all over her skin, sore from the shift and perhaps even a couple cuts around her lips from the attack she posed on any furniture she set in the room to keep her other form occupied. Today was different, she ached everywhere on a scale she never had before from a mere shift. She could tell her collarbone would be black and purple just from the feeling and her face felt like she’d been run against a cheese grater.

The second thing she noticed was the warmth against her back. Something was pressed against her. Skin and there was one arm draped around her. Rhea jumped violently, jerking away and clammering to her feet, ignoring the pain. She’d done much more, under much more pain. Her eyes were wide as she instinctively covered her bare chest- naked as per usual after each shift, and she gave a laugh of astonishment and disbelief at what she saw.

Jay Gardner 9:45 AM: What happened last night, exactly?
Ross Blackhall 9:51 AM: There was a huge blizzard and apparently everyone but me and that fallen angel on campus got stuck in their respective places cause white out conditions. There were some students hanging out int he primary building and two of the werewolves got stuck in there with them, and anoher got stuck in the uni dorm with two students.
Ross Blackhall 9:53 AM: I heard the howls so i got to the primary building in time, and me and the fallen managed to wrangle them into the padded rooms. I poofed over to check on the other building and found these two uni students holed up and apparently one of them had managed to get the other werewolf into a bathroom and barricaded the door with ice and snow and frozen furniture

Ross Blackhall 8:42 PM: Hey, Ourani? This is Ross, we’re going to need you to come back down to the school ASAP
Ross Blackhall 8:43 PM: Like immediately
Ourani J’Dvouir 9:15 PM: I was having thanksgiving dinner, thank you very much, what the hell did you all manage to do.
Ross Blackhall 9:16 PM: Apparently Vander and Calver and another of the students over in Uni didn’t make it to the werewolf lock up on time cause of a fucking blizzard
Ross Blackhall 9:17 PM: And some of the students are kind of banged up.
Ross Blackhall 9:17 PM: Pretty sure the wolves are gonna need a look see once they’re back to normal
Ourani J’Dvouir 9:19 PM: You guys are fucking hopeless
Ourani J’Dvouir 9:20 PM: I’ll pack up and be there in two hours, tops. try not to let anyone die while you’re waiting.
Ross Blackhall 9:22 PM: Aye aye captain
Ross Blackhall 9:32 PM: Quick question, can a werwolf get frostbite if, say, he gets locked in a bathroom in the uni building that has been barricaded with ice?
Ourani J’Dvouir 9:40 PM: He’s not going to get frostbite, wolves are made for cold weather, particularly such large wolves.
Ourani J’Dvouir 9:42 PM: Who is injured? How bad is it? How are they injured?
Ross Blackhall 9:44 PM: Miska Erdos got knocked unconscious, but he’s awake and seems fine right now, Urisi Krist got scratched up pretty good because I guess she had changed into a porcupine and Vander tried to eat her, only quills, and she’s in shock pretty bad
Ross Blackhall 9:45 PM: One of the girls is unconscious and in a fox form, dunno whats wrong but she hasn’t woken up, might have a concussion
Ross Blackhall 9:47 PM: The rest from the primary building have minor injuries and are mostly shaken up, but there’s two guys over in the uni dorm, one got beat up pretty bad, a broken leg and some really deep cuts, he’s lost a decent amount of blood and seemed to be healing pretty slow because of it, if he doesn’t start healing soon i’m going to stitch him up
Ross Blackhall 9:49 PM: And then whatever injuries the wolves have, but we can’t exactly examine them right now, ad they’ll prolly be healed by morning
Ourani J’Dvouir 9:55 PM: ugh alright. Just get everyone bandaged up, if you can make a splint give it to the the uni kid. Give the fox and Urisi blankets, if you can get someone through the blizzard see if they have family that can come, Urisi is friends with Zayne Faust, he’s a raven. Keep Rhea and Adrian contained.
Ross Blackhall 9:56 PM: They’re in the lock up in the basement now, i’ll also see if i can set the bone for the kid in uni, I have some experience with it, but i’m not the official nurse so Murdoch wants you here as quick as you can
Ross Blackhall 9:58 PM: Drive safe, it’s still coming down out there
Ourani J’Dvouir 10:01 PM: On my way now, I’ll be there in forty five minutes tops.

Moonlight Threat

Thursday, 11/28/2250 – By Kayla Salmon.

The Headmaster, Rodney Murdoch, usually stayed on campus for some of the major family holidays, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, and while most of the Murdoch family who was not in attendance at the Academy would come to see him during Winter Break, Thanksgiving was usually more up in the air. Will was very close with the older man and as such almost always stayed over the extended weekend while his cousins went home to see the rest of the family. Most of them lived in Chicago, but a few lived in the towns close by, or in the suburban areas outside of the city.

And Thanksgiving at the campus wasn’t such a bad thing. A decent amount of students stayed at the school during the extended weekend, not wanting to travel home, only to have to travel out again a few weeks later when the end of the semester came. And the dining hall always gave them a grand dinner, just as good as any home cooked meal, as always.

Glass Box

Thurs. 11/28/2250 – By Rebecca Green.

Was she going to get frostbite? It certainly was freezing and Aelita regretted her act of heroism. The blizzard was only getting worse, but she pushed on through the wind and snow, it wasn’t as if it was a terribly far walk. She’d stolen Dora’s jacket to tug over her own coat atop a dual layer of shirts, so she’d survive at least.

She simply hadn’t wanted to abandon the Eagle’s House. God knew that they were likely to be getting into trouble and she couldn’t be sure that they had another prefect there. Blackhall, of course, was not to be trusted with her preciously aggravating babies. On her way, Aelita nearly kicked a small, very adorable, tan creature with the biggest ears she’d ever seen.

Nearly, anyway, as she managed to see the thing just in time and she stumbled forward, almost face planting in the snow as she tried to maneuver around it. A fox, as she could see- but one of those weird ones. A fennec fox? That sounded about right, but those were desert creatures. Not blistering cold blizzard creatures.

Baby It’s Cold Outside

Thurs. 11/28/2250 – By Rebecca Green.

The moon wasn’t exactly reliable. Magic itself had a margin of error- that was its beauty, it could change on the fly and adapt in a manner that other forces, such as gravity or time or what have you, could not. It was also terribly confusing. There was a technical time every night that the moon would rise and, generally, that was the time that a cursed one would transform, should it be at its fullest point in its cycle.

However, it wasn’t to be relied on.

As such, Rhea’s life had been dictated by three beeps on her phone every month for as long as she could remember. The first would go off half an hour before the full moon was scheduled to rise and she was supposed to go down to the dungeons to lock herself up for the night at that time. It had been ten minutes since the beep, Rhea having turned it off and gone back to what she was doing- organizing student papers into the files in her desk. Which was exactly what the next beep, at fifteen minutes, was for. To remind her.

Technically, she should be in the dungeons by that point.
