Ross Blackhall 8:37 AM: So, you’ll never guess who I ran into last weekend.
Jay Gardner 8:56 AM: Who?
Ross Blackhall 9:30 AM: You know, a certain man. Typically blonde hair, blue eyes. Hella powerful. Goes by the name Levi.
Jay Gardner 10:03 AM: What?
Jay Gardner 10:05 AM: What’s he doing there???
Ross Blackhall 10:07 AM: Apparently Uriel asked him to hang around. He’s teaching magic.
Ross Blackhall 10:08 AM: I’m kind of surprised that you didn’t hear his name from any of the kids, to be honest.
Jay Gardner 10:10 AM: No, I didn’t, they mentioned a new magic professor, but not a name
Jay Gardner 10:11 AM: Does Rodney know who he is???
Ross Blackhall 10:20 AM: Apparently not, Levi asked me not to say anything to him.
Ross Blackhall 10:21 AM: But you’re not Rodney, and I can’t really ask the guy who owns my soul to not say something.
Jay Gardner 10:24 AM: Look at you being devious and beating the system.
Ross Blackhall 10:25 AM: Hell yeah
Ross Blackhall 10:27 AM: Though I do highly recommend not saying anything. If Uriel asked him to be here, then it might not be smart to piss off an archangel.
Jay Gardner 10:29 AM: There hasn’t been any problems, has there?
Ross Blackhall 10:31 AM: No, but I saw him and almost had a panic attack.
Jay Gardner 10:35 AM: Ross, seriously, I know he’s fond of you and our family, but do you actually trust him? Especially around kids? You’ve said before, he’s like a tank, what if he snaps and hurts someone?
Ross Blackhall 10:37 AM: I’ve never really seen him snap is the thing, he seems to have pretty good patience, which you’d need given everything.
Jay Gardner 10:42 AM: Can you please keep an eye on him, just in case
Jay Gardner 10:43 AM: And of course if the media finds out it’ll be a shit storm over there, Uriel’s making it bad enough, but given the time she almost threw a newscaster off the roof, they’ve been hanging back
Ross Blackhall 10:47 AM: At this point I’m kind of keeping an eye on EVERYTHING
Jay Gardner 10:49 AM: Okay, keep me posted

Music Calms The Beast

Wednesday, 12/4/2250 – By Kayla Salmon

The thing about the Eagle House was that there was always something going on. And sometimes that was a good thing, but when you had a headache, it wasn’t always great. Noklie sat in the porch swing, his legs curled up to his chest and he tapped his fingers on his knees.

The headache was from the voices. Two voices, given what he was. In his normal form he had three heads and each of those heads had their own thoughts and desires, even personalities. When they were in human form the three of them were all smushed together and he, the middle and main head, was left listening to them.

We need to do something, one of the voices yelled. Sniff, smell, run, transform and run, everyone else does!

“Please, just shut up and leave me alone,” Noklie muttered, begging the voices to stop and be quiet.

Peek-A-Boo

Saturday, 11/30/2250 – By Kayla Salmon.

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.

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.

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.

Thur. 11/28/2250

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.

 

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.
