Bursts Of Energy

Wednesday, 12/4/2250 – By Kayla Salmon.

It was already their fourth month of school, so the schedule was down pat and the second years were trudging up to the third floor, fresh from their herbology class as they always were every Monday and Wednesday. Luckily, Hakidonmuya was a strict and unforgiving instructor, so most of the second years were worn down, tired and ready for the school day to come to a close, even those who had one of their elective courses afterwards.

Of course that wasn’t the rule. Given they were twelve and thirteen year olds, there was usually more than enough energy to make his classes interesting, despite the fact that it was supposed to be a theoretical class, and not one with application.

Not that he carried through with that most of the time. It helped to try and teach the students some basic things so they could discover if they had an affinity for magic, and it also tended to keep the students more focused than when he simply lectured.

He’d done and seen a lot of stupid and weird shit in his lifetime. He was a demon, and it was a long lifetime, and lots of people had filtered through it. His most insane claim to fame would forever be the time the first head of the Gardner family basically forced him to take him through Hell, and then went and fought off a fallen angel.

Since he’d come to the academy, Adrian Gardner’s little stunt was sounding less and less crazy. So far he’d been assaulted on two different occasions by one little angry woman, had erotic fanfiction written about him and two of the staff, and had to help one of the students who had been taped to the wall. Yes. Taped, to the wall. Not to mention the insanity that had happened a couple days before when Vander and Calver, both werewolves, as it turned out, and Reid Firewolf, one of his students, had all missed out on the lock up time for the full moon and had ended up attacking the people in the buildings they were in. Not only had he had to fend off two werewolves from the group of students before herding them into a classroom, but then he’d had to help keep Reid contained in a bathroom that one of the other students had trapped him inside of. At least it was only until morning.

But this, this took the fucking cake. Since the insanity of the werewolf escapades on Thanksgiving, most of the staff were returning as early as possible, and that included a specific Magic Professor he’d yet to have the pleasure of being introduced to.

There’s Something Afoot!

Thurs. 11/14/2250 – By Rebecca Green.


The weather had been both comforting and irritating. Gwen loved the cold, don’t get her wrong- she was pretty used to it, what with Mrs. Ice Queen back at home, aka her mother, making everything feel like an ice box. However, the snow made it difficult to make her long trek to her little alcove by the lake. Then again, she loved making snowballs and pelting her sister with them and laughing as Aelita shrieked back about her hair. Plus, sled races were the bomb.

Anyway. Her alcove. The banks of snow that had littered campus grounds ever since that one guy had arrived, Blackhell as she’d learn to call him from Aelita, were finally melting. Not entirely, it was slushy in some places but it was enough that she had been able to pelt through the forest. She was disappointed to find the small alcove, a circle of water covered by low hanging trees branching off from the lake was frozen over and she couldn’t do anything with it.
