PERSONALITY:
Amanda, unlike the rest of her siblings, was raised to be modest and kind to everyone, she isn't vain and finds it uncomfortable when people compliment her, however, when she is using her desire manipulation, all her modesty and manners go out the window, and she becomes vain and blunt like the rest of her siblings. Once done playing with her powers, she'll immediately regret her attitude, but not usually what she did who regrets something so fun. With a history of watching romantic movies with her aunt and reading romantic literature, Amanda was raised into a hopeless romantic and having watched one too many failed attempts at love for her aunt, she used her powers to give her that happy ending she deserved, but the match making didn't stop there, she brought her father and his new wife together, her best friend and his current girlfriend and even random strangers, there was always the odd single soul walking down the same street in two different bodies and they never knew their soulmate was right next t them, so Amanda always gave them that little shove.

Whilst a mostly good person, she is flawed with her licentious nature, so much so she can't find her true love because all she does is sleep around with men, as if it is her curse to do nothing else with them, even when she has had boyfriends, their desires flew out of control and suddenly they were drawn to sleep with other girls. This was what inspired her to go to Aeonis Academy, so as she can learn to have control over her powers and live a semi-normal life, but she fears once the war is over none of the demigods will have a normal life, resulting in her confliction towards the entire ordeal.

LIKES:
✔Hot Chocolate - Every winter, Daniel would bring home a hot chocolate for Amanda every night when she was younger and read to her as she drank it. ✔ Swimming - Amanda enjoys how freeing being in the water makes her feel, she also likes it because she can reveal a lot more of her body without being judged✔Reading - Amanda is an avid reader and loves the classic romance, it was these stories that sparked the hopeless romantic in her ✔ Shell collecting - Ever since coming into possession of her mother's scallop shell necklace, she has scoured the beaches of Northern Ireland for a shell just as beautiful, if not more beautiful ✔ Dancing - Amanda was rather popular and any chance she got, she went out with her friends and would dance the whole night, it was when she danced her powers over desire became their most powerful and Amanda always got her man for the night.

DISLIKES:
✖ The Gods - All they did was toy with humans and curse those that didn't play along ✖ The other half of her powers - Whilst it is fun, Amanda has little control over the desire portion and she doesn't like that ✖ Stereotypes and stereotyping - As a blonde, she's dumb and as a descendent of Aphrodite she's vain, she hates people who stereotype and the stereotypes themselves ✖ Americanisms - She is rather pickity about the english language and source materials, she feels the same about canadian french, don't take it personally. ✖

FEARS:
☠ Abandonment - Since her mother just left her, she has always had this fear people will always abandon her and that petrifies her ☠ The death of her loved ones - All Amanda has is her father and if he were to die, she'd be left alone ☠ Her powers - due to her lack of control over them, Amanda is scared it may result in a few precarious situations for her or the people she uses them on

FAMILY::
Daniel Cartwright (Father) - A detective within the PSNI, he is deeply protective of Amanda and they have an extremely good relationship, Amanda emails and visits her dad when she can but with the time difference, conversations through text and email are hardly flowing.
Joanne Cartwright (Step-Mother) - An independent woman who owns a small bakery and was introduced to Amanda the same day, Daniel and Joanne became somewhat smiten with each other, they have a good relationship and Amanda sees her as her own mother.
Alex Jenkings (Step-Brother) - Joanne's first child, he has taken on a rather protective big brother role over Amanda and sometimes it's overbearing, other times it's sweet, but either way the relationship is healthy.
Hannah Cartwright (Half-Sister) Daniel and Joanne's first child together, both Alex and Amanda care for Hannah fiercely, almost like a competition to prove who is the better sibling, whilst Alex is protective and fun, Amanda is supportive and eccentric, either way Hannah and Amanda get on like best friends.

RELATIONSHIP WITH GODLY PARENT:
"Oh the mother that abandoned me? Yeah we get on swell."
Once Amanda was born, Aphrodite simply tossed her aside and sent her to be with her father, with only a letter ever so delicately handwritten to tell her of her heritage and powers. With the exception of a time Amanda is unaware of, when she was still a child, Aphrodite visited her when she was playing in a park, she was being picked on by some boys and the goddess sent them off before handing Amanda a necklace with a scallop shell on it, claiming she dropped it when she fell, Amanda didn't argue and simply accepted the gift, which she has worn ever since.

BIOGRAPHY:
Amanda was was raised in Belfast by her father and his first wife, until she was 3 and her step-mother left, divorcing Daniel under irreconcilable differences because he wouldn't put Amanda in the system and abandon her like her mother had, it was the same year Aphrodite showed herself to Amanda and gave her the necklace. Whilst difficult for Daniel to maintain his job and look after Amanda on his own, he managed it with the help of his sister and friends.

When Amanda hit puberty, her powers hit a spike and she become a rather precious gem within a cave of coal, every boy looked to her with longing and desire and every girl looked to her with hate and jealousy, which confused her as she had only grown a bosom and became slightly taller, unlike the rest of her godly siblings Amanda was raised not to be vain or self absorbed, she was raised honestly and humbly. It was this shyness which intreged her first love to approach her and so a cute realtionship ensued and Amanda gave herself to him, her first time was with someone whom she thought loved her and who she thought she loved too.

However the relationship did not last much longer than a year, when he dumped her because she wasn't nearly as 'worth the trouble', he was cruel in his method and rubbed every little thing in her face, any party he went to there would be pictures of girls and him, however given time the girls became fewer and the slaps became his nickname. Realising sex wasn't something to be saved, Amanda gave into her Aphrodite traits, her desire manipulation, beauty and vanity became previlient as she embraced a new her, she went out and began to rub it in his face, boys followed her, girls too, and she began to embrace her mother's traits, but not for long as when the morning came she remember who she was and instantly regretted everything.

That very year, Amanda moved schools and fell in with a group of girls, known for their bitchiness and horrible attitudes, when one of the girls was cast from the group and ridiculed, Amanda remained neutral and tried her best to be a good friend to both the girl and the group, but as tensions became higher, Amanda was put in the firing line, the girl told the group that Amanda had been telling her the truth and vice versa, so she was cast out, her secrets spread and her self-esteem destroyed, it was then Amanda discovered her powers. The girls lives entirely feel apart, their boyfriends all left them, they became undesirable in the eyes of other boys and everyone slowly grew to hate them, Amanda thought it simply karma until a letter addressed to her told her of her heritage and powers and she was then invited to Aeonis Academy for Demigods.

Once learning of her gifts, Amanda instantly realised it was no pure coincidence why love and desire seemed to follow in her wake, her dad and step-mum, more commonly referred to as her mum, her aunt and her husband, her best friend and his girlfriend, the many boys in many places, but of course the gift came with a bad side to it, her history with bullies has led to an easier access for hate, anger and anxiety, when this happens her powers tend to spin out of control and those who cause these feelings often meet with the 'offensive' powers of the Aphrodite child.

FAVORITE POWER:
The power to give and take love, Amanda is a hopeless romantic and a vengeful force, two sides of the same coin when it comes to love. She has destroyed the love lives of girls she despises, made deserving men happy and most of all gave her father a much more loving marriage.

MISCELLANEOUS:
Female face claim - Laura Spencer

Amanda was one of the last to arrive at the Academy after returning from Summer, her bags had yet to be emptied and sat in the corner of her bedroom, which for the time being was void of any mess. The wardrobe was empty and neither door was being used to hang any of her clothes and the drawer beneath the doors wasn't open to reveal a messy gathering of shoes, but instead the entire wardrobe was closed and looked as if it had never been used, but that's because Amanda was so used to it being a mess that the look of it closed and tidy was slightly off putting as she stared at it.

Amanda had her 6 hours sleep and wasn't as drained feeling as she should have been, flights usually drained the life from her but last nights was surprisingly pleasant and didn't leave her feeling groggy or drained at all. So as soon as her alarm went off, she rose with ease and even set about tidying her room... Well, arranging her room to how it should be. She grabbed the first suitcase and emptied the contents onto her bed and started hanging them back into the wardrobe, and placing the shoes back in the drawer, for now it was a relatively organised sight, give it a day and it'll be the mess it always was.

As she put the last pair of shoes away and looked at the suitcases, she was fairly surprised to see she was finished, her suitcases had been emptied and all that sat on the bed was the gifts for Jensen, the very sight of them made a slight gasp escaped her lips.
"Oh yeah." It was a barely audible whisper to herself as she snatched her phone of the bedside table.

[To: Jensen x]
[Hey you! I only got back last night! I missed you and have something for you! xx]


She held the phone in her hands, impatiently awaiting his reply, and it showed because she early ran the shell pendant along the chain or was checking to see if he had replied, even the phone didn't buzz or whistle to indict he had, and when he didn't reply instantly she knew he mustn't have been awake yet and so decided to message the others to distract herself.

[To: Markus]
[Yo ho! Why weren't you on my flight? :O xD x]


[To: Aiden]
[I seriously hope you've nothing planned for this Orientation Day! How's you kiddo? Missed ya :3 x]


[To: Mari]
[Guess who's back, besides all the other people that aren't me? ;P Such a difficult question, I know, even I can't get it xD x]

Mark lay on his belly, his face buried deep into his pillow as a light snore glided around the room, he'd been told it was a cute snore but he doubted it many times, snores are cute, snores stop people from sleeping, they can't be cute, he's slept with enough snores to know... One snorer is enough to know they are not good sleeping companions. As he lay there in some semblance of peace, it wouldn't last much longer as his tablet started it's alarm, and he'd set it to an Electro playlist, therefore the alarm would be loud and energetic and he also set the tablet on his desk, not his bedside table, meaning he'd have to actually get up and out of bed to switch the damned thing off, but it rarely ever worked in waking him up, he'd just fall back on top of the covers and start snoozing again.

This time he had no such luxury, as his phone buzzed and played a short tone, the vibration making the phone go over the edge just that bit much more and falling down underneath his bed. He dropped his hand and tried to grab the phone at the awkward enough angle and when he realised he couldn't, an irritated groan escaped his lips.
"Oh fuck me!" Mark pushed himself of his bed and stood over the bed, his pyjamas hung low on his waist and his torso exposed to the entire room, if there was an audience he'd be ashamed and try and hide but instead he just looked in the mirror and sighed at himself before getting on all fours and grabbing his phone. Reading the message, he blew an extra bit of air out his lungs, making a slightly humoured sound.

To: Amanda Cartwright]
[I was in the CockPit, flying high kid! xD Lol jk, could ya imagine me in a gay club :O]


He hit send and then lay back on the bed, he thought about messaging one of his other friends but he simply didn't know what to say, he felt 'hey missed you, what's up' was too generic, a bunch of random swear words was too Belfast a way to say hello and generally didn't like messaging people first in case he bothered them. He rolled his eyes and grabbed a fresh and clean pair of underwear, cyan Calvin Kleins with the black waistband, and a pair of socks, cyan with a black rim, an odd thing to have matching, but he liked to keep his underwear matching, it was an odd quirk he had but it bothered no one, because no one ever saw them, well saw it more than twice, so must just assume he did it for the night or something, either way no one ever mentioned it.

Having showered and prepared appropriately, he returned to his room and pulled on a pair of dark blue spray-on skinny jeans with a plain blue shirt before heading into the shared living space, and he couldn't quite tell if Miles was even up, the living space was tidy, but it always was anyway, and his door was closed so Mark had no idea. Either way, he decided to make, eat and clean his breakfast loudly to wake his roommate up and when he didn't emerge, Mark sighed and rolled his eyes, before storming into the son of Ares bedroom.
"Oi! Pay attention to me being all loud and shit, wanker!" He shouted into the room, his voice wasn't raised but instead had a joking tone to it."

"One ninty-five, one ninty-six, sone ninty-seven..." Andrew counted out as he finished up his morning workout with some pull-ups. Nearly every day he gets up at around five am for his nearly two hour long morning workout session. He is a early riser, been that way since his military days. Some habits die hard. So he gets up early, and get his sweat on. He prefers it that way, since he gets the training room all by himself. Plus half the time he feels like Ms. McKinney, and/or Ms. Stanford are watching him. He gets uncomfortable when he gets stared at.

Andrew dropped down when he reached two hundred pull-ups, and grabbed a towel to wipe off the sweat on his brow. He then heard a loud crackling of a thunderbolt, on a day with a clear blue sky. "Zeus." He growled. He tossed his towel into the dirty clothes bin, and headed out towards Enoch's office, figuring Zeus would be there, to see what's up.

Andrew went on into Enoch's office, to see Enoch inside, and Zeus sitting behind his desk. "It's a fine day to see you two again. I hope that things are looking up." Zeus greeted the two as he played with whatever was on Enoch's desk. "Sir." Andrew replied with a respectful nod. "Is something wrong?" Andrew asked, sure Zeus always visits the academy, but that was always for an inspection, and this felt different though.

"Well then it's important I share this with you so we can keep it that way." Zeus stated as he was preparing himself to say something. Andrew watched him with a slightly raised eyebrow, if he didn't know any better he'd say Zeus is worried about something. Andrew nodded along with Enoch to show he understood as well. "I'll be keeping contact with you two about this, stay alert, for the line between enemy and friend may be blurred." Zeus stated. "Yes sir." Andrew said as he stood in a very military like way.

Andrew rolled his eyes at Zeus' exit. Very inconvenient. "Ain't this just grouse? I can think of 'bout twenty ankle biters that fit the bill off the top of my head." Andrew started. "I'll keep a Captain Cook out for trouble." Andrew said with a nod as he started to leave the office. "Oh, what about the other teachers mate? It'd probably be best if we kept it between us for now." Andrew said as he left, to give him something to think about.

Andrew walked through the halls, and towards the faculty building. He headed towards his office, and say Miss Stanford yelling outside of Miss McKinney's office. Andrew raised an eyebrow at her, especially when he mentioned a secret stash of boozes. Andrew loudly cleared his throat to make his presence known. "G'Day Miss Stanford." Andrew greeted. Before continuing on to his office. "I'll be here if 'ya need me. So try not to need me." He stated as he closed his office door.

Andrew sat down behind his desk, and unlocked the top drawer of it. He took out a cellphone that was inside. He entered a number into the phone, and sat back in his chair as he waited for it to be answered. "G'Day sir. Guess who just popped in for a visit.....aye, Zeus. He seemed worried......No, I don't think he knows about you, or me. As far as they know someone is gathering Demi-Gods......Yes, I have a few prospects that I'm looking at.....There's no need to worry about me sir, I can handle myself......Yes, I've gotta go, I'll call you again for my next report."

"Boom! There goes your head!" "No fair, you always know where the rocket launchers spawn! Cheater!" "I'm sorry you suck so bad." This type of talk went on between a young Jensen, and his little brother Nolan as they played a video game. "So where do you want to lose at next? Beaver Creek?" Jensen then looked over at his brother. Nolan was leaning against the wall in the far back, with a large chunk of his shirt burnt off, and a large burn on his chest. Jensen, on instinct, rushed to his brother's side, who was shaking, and gasping for air.

"Nolan!" Jensen shouted as he got over to his brother. He lightly slapped Nolan on his face, and tried shaking him to wake him up. Then Nolan just completely turned into ash. Jensen stood there in shock as the remains of his brother slipped through his fingers. The veins in his arms began to glow electric blue, and his hands were covered in electricity. The energy began to move around his arms, and started to cover his entire body.

Jensen's eyes shot open as he awoke at the sound of the thunderbolt Zeus arrived in. "Fantastic." He groaned, he knew exactly what that meant. He rolled himself out of bed, and saw that his roomie was already gone. Jensen rolled out of bed, already in a fowl mood from the mere presence of Zeus. He doesn't even need to be around the prick in order for him to sour his mood. He rubbed his eyes, and then heard his phone go off. He searched around his bed, looking for his phone. He turned over his pillows, shuffled through his sheets, and blankets. How does he always lose it?

Eventually he found it underneath the bed, and saw he got a text from Amanda. As soon as he saw the name it made him grin, his day was at least starting to get better. He missed her quite a bit during the break, more than she'll realize. The only time he feels like he can sleep without nightmares is when he's with her.

[To Amanda]
[Oh you got me something? Is it see through? ;) I might have something for you too. See ya in a bit.]


Once that was sent Jensen got cleaned up, and grabbed a small plastic bag from out underneath his bed. He put on his favorite t-shirt, and grabbed his jacket. He exited his room, and soon saw his half-sister, and his roomate together. He'd be lying if he said he wasn't a bit uncomfortable with it. Sure Tristan's a nice guy, and Jensen's not that close to Alex, but still, she is his sister.

"Dude, do I need to get a hose?" Jensen smirked as he swung his jacket around, and threw it on. "Damn, am I only lightning hurler who can just walk out a freaking door?" He asked. "Glad the Almighty Dickcheese didn't stick around for a little reunion though." He smirked before he started to walk away. "Later Trissy, Princess, other guy." He said as he continued on with his business.

Orientation day was an event that usually received mixed reviews from students, but seeing as it was usually the first opportunity for students to reunite with their friends, it was more unanimously welcomed with either enthusiasm or nervous dread. In this particular dorm however hung a deafening silence. All was still except for the slight stir caused by the room's only occupant as he breathed.

Aiden hated mornings. Hated them, hated them, hated them, yet knew that they were a necessary evil. That did not make them any less loathsome because their arrival still meant that he would need to exit the comfort of his slumber, something that was harder to do than one would think. It wasn't known to most that the ever calculating Aiden was also a heavy sleeper and mostly impervious to the morning sun's merry rays and the ringtone of his phone. In fact, he had barely stirred when the latter had let out a sharp series of synthetic note to announce the reception of a new text message. Fortunately, it had came only minutes before the time Aiden had set his alarm for.

On his nightstand was an old twin hammer bell alarm clock. Although it was old, it was still functional and in good condition if one ignored the scratches adorning one of its sides. It was from that one time Aiden's old man had almost successfully obliterated it with a well-aimed shot. As for why the stoic man would unleash his hunting rifle on a seemingly harmless object? Well, it wasn't completely harmless; Aiden had given it life through one of his spells and given it the life-long duty of waking people up at all cost. Much like today, it had been ticking merrily until the set time after which it had let out an obnoxiously high-pitched screech that would put banshees to shame. When Aiden had merely rolled over much like he did today, it had made a ruckus by stomping angrily with its tiny, metallic legs.

It received little to no response once more, and this time, in a fit of rage, the animated clock leaped into the air and slammed its pointy edges near Aiden's eye sockets. That drew a reaction out of the teen and saw that it would be swatted across the room, through the open bathroom door, and right into the sink, all the while still wailing that unnaturally high note.

Massaging his bruised face, the son of Hecate let out a long yawn before finally leaving the comfort of his bed. His newly carved wand floated to his hand and he grumbled a quick incantation while pointing it at the wiggling clock that had been trying to leap out of the slippery trap it had found itself in. It immediately shut up, as though Aiden had just pressed the mute button on a remote and smashed itself onto the bathroom tiles with a loud clatter in his hurry to escape. There, it twitched once, than a second time before finally stilling.

        To: Amanda Cartwright
        Not yet. Maybe once I've had my first cup of tea. You should know better than to miss me. ;) A new school year and a new batch of freshmen to breakup.

Responding to his friend's text had taken a painfully long time mostly due to his sleep muddled mind and clumsy fingers. The next challenge he faced was getting dressed up and making himself presentable enough to leave his room. In the kitchen, he fished out a packet of jasmine tea he had left in the cabinet the night before and boiled some hot water.

Meanwhile, his clock had sprung back to life as soon as he had touched the doorknob to his room's door and scurried out behind him when he wasn't paying attention. The device would gallop on its tiny feet to the next door its nonexistent eyes landed upon: a very unfortunate Dylan Ramirez's door. Once it had reached its destination, it slammed itself repeatedly against the barrier stopping his advancement in hopes of smashing through it so that it may continue its quest to rouse all that is living. It may have been silenced by the wicked sorcerer, but it still had a functional body!

XxxxxxXSeptember, 1st | Orientation Day
XXxXXXXXXXXXXGirl's Dormitory
XXxXXXXXXXXXXXxXx Outfit
────────────────────────────────

Upon blinking away the sleep from her eyes, clearing the thick, hazy blur that seemed to pollute her vision, Marilyn was met by the startling contrast of a billowy mass of raven locks against the cream hue of her pale pillow. The spilling, swirling strands had somehow gotten threaded between her slender fingers, which, in turn, were wrapped around the sleek rectangular shape of her phone, the screen blinking in indication that the playlist she had chosen to fall asleep to the night before had come to an end. Marilyn could still hear the bewitching melodies of soft jazz humming in her ears as she groggily propped herself up and plucked the earbuds out of her ears. As Marilyn’s phone whumped against the intricate pattern of a blanket that was unlike the one she had at her home in Arizona, it only served to remind her where she was; she was back at the Academy for another year and Marilyn was filled with the same sense of excitement which had been building for weeks until her arrival last night.

Though the way the light filtered through Marilyn’s windows indicated that it was still early morning, Marilyn, being both the daughter of the sun God and simply a morning person, paid no mind and set about to begin her day. The tasks she completed were menial and ordinary- she made her bed, unpacked the last articles of clothing from her suitcase, and got distracted with her guitar for a few minutes, plucking out a simple, upbeat tune- but her body was thrumming and buzzing with eagerness and anticipation for the day.

She didn’t even try to stop the animated smile from appearing on her face while stretching out into a few basic yoga poses on the bright orange mat laid out on the hardwood flooring, despite it probably looking kind of creepy. Being back just filled her with a feeling of belonging that she admittedly didn’t have at home and she wanted to be back with mingling with her demi-god friends and learning more about her powers. Aeonis was her home away from home, but it made her feel more comfortable than she ever was in her own house on the reserve.

After making herself presentable, dressing in a sheer, dark navy patterned top paired with black skinnies and fixing up her hair and makeup, Marilyn reached for the phone that she had abandoned on her bed. She had people to reach out to, after all!

[From: Mandy ♥]
[Guess who's back, besides all the other people that aren't me? ;P Such a difficult question, I know, even I can't get it xD x]


Marilyn beamed at the other girl’s cute message, shooting her a quick reply amongst some others.

[To: Mandy ♥]
[Who ever could you possibly be talking about? Perhaps a certain redhead?? lol I’m about to head out. Will I see you at breakfast? :D]

[ To: The Grumpy Scotsman >:( ]
[Good morning, Scottie! I hope you had a good summer! I don’t know if I’ll see you at breakfast, but I’ll catch up with you sometime :) ]

[To: TESS! ]
[Psst, are you awake? Because we should get some breakfast! I’m hungrrryyy! xD]


Sending out the last of her texts, Marilyn slung her bag over her shoulder and exited the room into the commons area of her dorm. Quietly, she crept up towards Kiren’s, who Mari didn’t know if she was still in there, door and rapped on the wood. “You up in there?” She called.

The words were muffled at first, muted in that kind of way that is reminiscent of holding your head underwater, and they seemed miles away from Hugo’s sleep-induced mind. They were nothing but a distant murmur, an unintelligible rumbling of an unidentifiable source. Perhaps, at the back of Hugo’s mind, he had the capability to know what this source was, but at the current point in time, he was content to slip back into a deeper slumber and not have to worry about it. Only, the noises continued. The noises continued and they were getting louder and all the more clear, much to the sleeping boy’s disdain.

The next thing he gained was the ability to realize that the same someone who was making all of the noise was also shaking at his bed. First, there was a large quake and then, for some god awful reason, this initial quake seemed to have set off a succession of smaller, more rapid quakes that had Hugo’s body following along with the movements. Hugo could feel his own mind slowly rouse from the murky depths of sleep, but it was the familiar, poorly accented, feminine voice exclaiming dramatically, "Mi marido me dejó!" that had Hugo coming to a slight comprehensibility.

Sweet, sweet Priya. Why must you awaken him so?

Priya Aiken was not only one of his best friends, but the closest thing to a sister that a person could be without actually being related by blood. From the moment they met, they simply just ‘clicked’. The British girl with a brilliant mind and penchant for his kind of humour, had laughed at all of his silly jokes and quips, even tossing a witty line or two herself. What was to be a moment of playful banter between two connoisseurs of comedy had grown into something so much more, evolving and developing into the wonderful, amazing thing they had today. With Nessa, Hugo’s sister (on their father’s side, of course), Hugo, and Priya combining forces, they were unstoppable.

After Priya threatened to jump on his bed, Hugo simply just groaned, attempting to burrow his way back into his covers. “Priya,” He croaked, his throat raspy and thick from disuse, “Go away.” But Hugo can feel her perched at the corner of his mattress, the surface dipping from her weight.

Perhaps Hypnos will take pity on him for once and allow Hugo to fall back into a deep slumber without Priya pestering him. Hell, Perhaps Priya will take pity on him for once and allow Hugo to go back to bed.

“No es de extrañar que tu marido te dejó .” Hugo grumbled, pulling his dark blue covers over his bare torso and over his head and squeezing his eyes tightly shut.

Amanda immediately looked at her phone screen when the phone whistled, obviously the contents of her phone where hidden behind a lock pattern, which oddly enough was in the shape of a heart when what she really wanted it to be was two downward arrows. As she connected the final pin, her phone buzzed twice again, Amanda smiled to herself, she had made good friends who replied when they got the message."Look who's popular today." She said to herself, bobbing her head left and right gently.

[From: Markus]
[I was in the CockPit, flying high kid! xD Lol jk, could ya imagine me in a gay club :O]

[To: Markus]
[Oh dear god, the image! Please take it back! I feel violated! x]


[From: Jensen x]
[Oh you got me something? Is it see through? ;) I might have something for you too. See ya in a bit.]

[To: Jensen x]
[Hahaha xD There's more than one thing, maybe something see-through is one of them ;P xx]


Amanda chuckled at her message, she loved to tease him just as much as she thought she loved him, an emotion she tried her best to bury down encase he didn't feel the same way, and thinking about it made her smile falter just enough for most people to notice, after all, she was a rather bubbly and eccentric person, a weak smile on her face, didn't tend to bode well.

[From: Aiden]
[Not yet. Maybe once I've had my first cup of tea. You should know better than to miss me. ;) A new school year and a new batch of freshmen to breakup.]

Amanda let out another giggle, she was easily humoured these days, maybe being back home wasn't as much fun as she had thought it was, afterall she was only in Belfast, most interesting thing there was a hill and you didn't really want to go near it past 6 in the evening.
[To: Aiden]
[I hope you can feel the eyeroll! xD Hey, you're like my lil bro! I'll miss you, if I wanna miss you! x
Ps. Freshmen's in love? What is this High School Musical? Come on, Aiden, breaking them up is as easy as me liking one of his statuses and commenting 'lol x']


A slight smirk stretched up her left cheek as she sent the not too sassy, but the sass was certainly intended, message to Aiden. They had fun playing their little game, nearly almost every time Amanda has won, but he sometimes gets the upper hand and proves Amanda wrong, albeit temporarily. Amanda was pulled from her slight daze when her phone buzzed again in her hand.

[From: Mari]
[Who ever could you possibly be talking about? Perhaps a certain redhead?? lol I’m about to head out. Will I see you at breakfast? :D]

Amanda chuckled at Mari's response, Mari was one of the few people who let Amanda be her quirky self without calling her out as weird or creepy, well on occasion she would, but they were just in a jokey way.
[To: Mari]
[YOU'VE REPLACED ME WITH ANOTHER REDHEAD! :O How dare ye?! What about all the banter and craic we have? Did it mean nothing?! Well you can forget your present!
P.S. I may be a bit late to breakfast, gonna catch up with Jensen and then come down :3 x]


Sometimes Amanda worried herself with her weirdness but she didn't let it stop her from hitting send, she only just hoped Mari wouldn't see it as too weird, but then again Mari was used to how odd she was now.

Jensen felt his phone go off in his pocket as he walked away from Alex, and Tristan. He took it out of his pocket to see it was a text from Amanda. But before he could even read it Alex grabbed his arm to give him a stern talking to about their father. He folded his arms, and rolled his eyes. As she talked about how he owes Zeus everything, anger began to sweal inside him. Large, pitch black thunderclouds began forming above their heads, clearly from him, as he griped tighter on his arms. "Owe him?! I don't owe him shit!"

"Being able to shoot lightning from my hands doesn't make me who I am. Who my parents are doesn't make me who I am. I am who I am. No matter what." Jensen growled at his younger sister. "Let me drop some knowledge on ya. We're defined by our actions, not others Princess." Jensen stated, obviously something he felt strongly about. "Family isn't about blood. Zeus doesn't give two shits about any of us, so why should I give two shits about him? I don't need him, I'm fine just the way I am." Jensen stated.

"The only thing the gods care about is themselves. Nothing they've ever done says any different." Jensen said before he walked away, with the crackling of thunder with each step. Jensen looked at the message sent to him by Amanda. It made a smile return to his face as he began to calm down, and the thunderclouds began disappearing. If there's one thing he can say about Amanda, it's that she can instantly calm him down.

[To: Amanda]
[Mmm loving it already! I could go for some fun. Just had a run in with the little sis, the one dating my roomy, incase you couldn't tell by the thunder. I'm on my way. Gotta make up for lost time. ;D]


Jensen stuck his phone in his pocket, and went on to meet her. Hopfully she'll brighten up his day, which she usually does.

Andrew looked over to his shelf next to his desk where he keeps his collection of pistols, and saw a basket of baked goods. "Juniper." He muttered to himself as he picked it up. He didn't understand the fasination her, and her partner in crime have in him. He's never given them any indication that he's interested in them, and always has acted professional to them. He sat the basket aside for later, and placed his secret cell phone back in it's drawer. He got up, and left his office to get to work, kid's asses aren't going to kick themselves after all.

"G'Day Miss McKinney." Andrew greeted with the upmost professionalism. "Thank you for the basket. It's....appreciated. I'll return the basket later." Andrew thanked with a respectful nod. "Now, if you'll excuse me I must go, and whip these bludgers into shape. Someone has to." He said as he left them. With Andrew it wouldn't be all that surprising if he actually meant whipping. He does have a dislike of kids.

As he walked the halls of the academy, a million thoughts raced into his head. All of them about Zeus, and his current place at the academy. If it's found out about him being a rather huge cog in the rising Demi-god war machine by anyone here, he'd be on his own. He knew this going in of course, but still it's not easy hiding who he truly is from people he's around everyday. Though one good thing about being a child of Aries is that antisocial behevior such as his is expected, so no one questions it.

A current of air followed by the sound of Kyle's door slamming shut had Aiden look up from where he had been looking for some crackers and stare at the wall separating him from his upperclassman with mild curiosity. His dorm mate was back and not too subtly avoiding him. They had never been too close to each other despite having been forced to live in close proximity of one another for the past few years, and Aiden had the vague feeling that Kyle rather disliked him, which wasn't something too surprising. Even then, the son of Athena had not done anything to get on his bad side, so he shrugged and went back to preparing himself a nice cup of warm tea now that the water had finally come to a boil. Their relationship was one of mutual avoidance. So long as they stayed out of each other's way, they would remain civilized towards each other.

Unbeknownst to Aiden though, the annoying clock he had animated with his magic had managed to slip into Kyle's room. The agitated teen must have been in too much of a hurry to escape into his fortress of solitude to have noticed the strange device repeatedly smashing itself against his door when he had first entered their shared dorm. As soon as he had opened the door to his room, the object had ran on its tiny metal feet and made a mad dash behind him before he had the time to close his door onto the infernal device.

Now that the hammer bell clock had reached its destination, it noticed a grave miscalculation: the sleeping beauty it had set out to awaken had been awake all along! After spending a few minutes surveying its surrounding, it came to the conclusion that it was now stuck in this odd chamber, unable to move on to its next target and finish his journey, so it rattled angrily, only to be reminded that he had been silenced by the evil sorcerer's spell. With no more choice, it stomped angrily towards the sleeping beauty who was not sleeping and smashed itself against its shin with enough force to bruise.

Meanwhile, Aiden had just taken a sip of his morning tea, but set his cup down on the kitchen counter when he heard his phone chime once more. It was a response from Amanda.
        To: Amanda Cartwright
        Careful or your eyes may roll out of their socket. Young and naïve love. Exactly why it will be so entertaining. Best to ruin things for them as early as possible, no? I had a boring summer, sue me.

To be perfectly honest, Aiden was starting to see their competition as more of a source of…entertainment than a social experiment, but indulging in a little fun every now and then never hurt anyone. Much. Speaking of social experiments, it was the students' first day back in Aeonis, so it was time to—what was the term?—catch up with his friends.

"Otter, are you awake yet?" Aiden tried using his mind. He and his half-sister had developed the habit of communicating by telepathy. It was a very convenient gift that has allowed them to remain in contact with each other so long as they were within range although he had to be careful so as to no intrude on her privacy. Yes, he actually knew what the word meant even if he rarely respected the privacy of others, but Otter wasn't just an other.

Kyle had finally pulled out every video game he had from his backpack and smiled at nothing in particular. Kyle pulled out his phone, still listening to music, Fall Out Boy was playing at the moment. They were one of his favorite bands. Anyway, he texted Amanda as he pulled out the book he was currently reading, "The Maze Runner" by James Dashner, he then walked out of his room, past Aiden, out of the dorm, down the hall, and bumping into a wall before walking outside to the grounds.

[To: Mandy Cartrider]
[Wazzzzuuuuuuuuuuuuupppppppppppp, Mandddddaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy? It's Kyle. How was your summer? :)]


He finally put his phone away as he saw Shyroe sitting under a tree. It took a few seconds for him to build some courage to sit next to her, he walked over. Dylan awkwardy waved at Shyroe, before sitting down next to her, "Well... uh... um... hi?..."

Amanda hadn't even looked at herself in the mirror to see what sort of state she'd woke up like and when she realised Jensen was heading her way, her eyes widened in disbelief as she realised he'd probably arrive and see her looking like a state, the good thing was she'd put dry shampoo in her hair before she went to sleep, so she wouldn't have to wash it as immediately as she thought she would have but when she looked in the mirror, it desperately needed conditioned and brushed, two things she didn't have time for, he would have only been a few minutes from knocking on her door."Fuck." She muttered to herself as she looked at her face, she had no make up on and her hair was nearly as bad as Ana's from Frozen. Her phone buzzed along the vanity table as the screen lit, up showing a message from Jensen.

[From: Jensen x]
[Mmm loving it already! I could go for some fun. Just had a run in with the little sis, the one dating my roomy, incase you couldn't tell by the thunder. I'm on my way. Gotta make up for lost time. ;D]


Amanda looked up from her phone and back at her reflection, "Oh so I guess he's gonna start running here, isn't he?" She seemingly asked her reflection, before quickly typing out her reply.

[To: Jensen x]
[Oh god! What did you say? xD xx]


Amanda set her phone back to where she had set it originally, she kissed her teeth as her mind raced in a panic, had Jensen not been a few minutes away, she'd know what to do but her mind raced as she tried to figure out what to do first. She instantly ran for the bathroom, snatching her toothbrush and some toothpaste before hoping into the shower, 3 birds 1 rushed stone. She quickly brushed her teeth and washed herself. Before quickly hopping out and drying herself off, her movements were as surprisingly graceful as they were quick, she surprised even herself. She quickly threw on a floral camisole and pulled a pair of skinny jeans over her fresh underwear. Her hair still wet and wrapped in a towel, Amanda grabbed her make up bag and applied a light pink lip gloss and lightly applied some eye-liner, her porcelain skin took too long to find an appropriate blusher and foundation so she usually just applied eye and lip make up without bothering too much with her cheeks and whole face in general.

With her face finally one and her clothes dealt with, Amanda removed the towel and quickly ran a brush and hair dryer over it, with her hair finally satisfactory she let out a sigh of relief. "Either I work good under pressure or he's gotten lost." She lightly chuckled, even if her heart was slightly racing. In her state of panic, Amanda hadn't even noticed her phone buzzing and when she checked, she blushed at the two neglected messages, before quickly responding to the first.

[From: Aiden]
[Careful or your eyes may roll out of their socket. Young and naïve love. Exactly why it will be so entertaining. Best to ruin things for them as early as possible, no? I had a boring summer, sue me.]

[To: Aiden]
[Don't even try and curse my eyes to fall out when I roll them at you! I'll make you fall in love with a toad, you can kiss it till the next blue moon but it will not become pretty! Please! First years aren't in love, I mean sometimes you get the odd one, but it's just kids being excited. x]


A slight smirk stretched up her left cheek as she sent the not too sassy, but the sass was certainly intended, message to Aiden. They had fun playing their little game, nearly almost every time Amanda has won, but he sometimes gets the upper hand and proves Amanda wrong, albeit temporarily. Amanda was pulled from her slight daze when her phone buzzed again in her hand.

[From: Kylie]
[Wazzzzuuuuuuuuuuuuupppppppppppp, Mandddddaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy? It's Kyle. How was your summer? :)]

Amanda heard the door knock from her room and she went to answer it as she typed a reply to Kyle.
[To: Kylie]
[Who is this Kyle you speak of? I know no Kyle! :O Jk jk! It was good! Well I mean as good as a summer in Northern Ireland can be after spending a whole year in Greece, how was yours Kylie? :P x
PS I don't care if you don't like the nickname! You're stuck with it! But no one else can call you it, only moi!]


Amanda opened the door just as she hit send and pocketed her phone before jumping onto Jensen, her arms wrapping around his neck as she hugged him.
"JENSEN!" She cried, her voice dripping with excitement, as she pulled away from the hug, she kept her right arm following down his arm until it held his hand and she pulled him to the shared dorm, hopefully Belladonna stayed in her room, not that Amanda didn't like, it's just it'd be awkward. "How was your summer? What did you get up to and how is your mum?" She asked him all at once as she led him to her room, where his gift bag sat on the bed, the contents of which was a AC/DC T-shirt from the hedge shop, Fresh Garbage, in Belfast, and two packets of sweets from Curious Candy, one with handmade tablet fudge and the other with fizzy bubblegum bottles. Amanda handed him the bag with a shrug and worried sigh, "I know how much of a sweet tooth you have and how into you're old rock you are, so they're just silly things."

Next piece of formality…I hope that last thought didn't just go through to her too… "Ahem, how was your summer? Did you get to meet mother?" he asked. He was well-aware of Hecate's past relationship with his half-sister. Unlike him, Otter had received multiple visits from the goddess of sorcery, but that number had dwindled in the past few years, piquing Aiden's curiosity. He would be lying if he claimed that he wasn't even a little bit envious of her naïve sibling, but he was at the same time grateful that all he knew from his mother as a person, apart from his brief meeting with her when he was ten, was from Otter's anecdotes. It was a biased and extremely subjective account he was receiving, but it kept all ill thoughts of her at bay.

He had just finished his tea and was about to head out himself, when Kyle appeared and beat him to the door. His dorm mate had vanished as quickly as he had appeared as though some hellhound of Hades were after him. Aiden blinked, impassive and unimpressed, when he heard a bump somewhere down the hall. "Accident-prone", he said aloud while adding that bit of information to the file on his dorm mate he kept in his head. Another notification from his phone urged him to right himself from where he had been leaning out the door to better observe the older boy make a fool out of himself, and read the sass he had received. He had not thought about it, but now that she had mentioned it, the presence of his wand in his pocket was tempting him. Lord knew that it was close to impossible for Aiden to fall in love with his disdain towards emotions and love of the rational, so perhaps a curse or two from Aphrodite's blood may actually be a good thing.

        To: Amanda Cartwright
        I hope the its facial features are perfectly symmetrical. I want the prettiest toad around. I believe what's important is what they believe in >;3
It was ironic yet sad that both of them were texting the same person without really being aware of their mutual friend. Well, it wasn't as though Aiden was someone one would expect to be in loving Amanda Cartwright's social circle.

Having had his departure delayed, Aiden was suddenly reminded of another one of his morning ritual and took a step back so he could close the door to their suite once more and not be disturbed. When he completely numbed out all physical stimuli he was receiving, he let his mind wander and seek out his targets.

One Kyle Ramirez was nervously sitting next to a girl—Shyroe Tallia, daughter of Hypnos, eleventh grade, reactivity: mild—which would explain his hasty departure. Perhaps a date? Either way, he'd seen that scenario play out way too many a times in his junior years so it was of little interest to him.

Next was locating Otter dearest. Switching his focus to the familiar presence of his sibling, he found her flustered and talking to—Loud and excited steps in the corridor broke his concentration and sent him reeling back. It looked as though his time window to peep on others was up and he would need to find Otter the old-fashioned way, not that it would be too hard since he knew where her dorm was.

Blending in with the crowd was a task he had perfected all too well. Simply let his pace adapt to that of the people around him and take on an air of nonchalance, as though he belonged there, and he became nothing more than another drop in a sea of students. It made for a great way to observe the people around him, even when he was not using his powers, and gossip simply flooded towards him naturally.

The sight, as odd as it was, was a welcome one, almost all-too-natural in Marilyn's eyes; There Kiren Vause, roommate and potion making extraordinaire, stood in her pajamas- socks on and a pair of mint green headphones brushing against her collarbone. The safety goggles she wore dwarfed her features, though they didn't take away from her beauty and she looked as wonderful as usual. The expressiveness of her eyes reflected a sort of brightness this morning and Marilyn was sure that Kiren had been dancing about her room at some time in the morning. Marilyn had caught Kiren doing so on quite a few occasions, Kiren's head bobbing and her hips moving from a beat that resounded from her headphones. The Navajo girl would either slip away from the scene giggling or even join in with Kiren, her own hips moving in with the muted tune. Marilyn missed this; she missed Kiren.

"It's almost as if you hadn't been gone at all. I feel like the last time I saw you, you were brewing something up," Marilyn teased good-naturedly, a fond smile growing across her face as she followed Kiren's rapid footsteps to the small kitchen they both shared. It had all of the basics: a rounded counter top on one end with a sink in the center of it and small stove area just across from it that was adjacent to the tall fridge. The one thing that was truly a sight to behold in their kitchen, however, were the spice racks. Perhaps a few of the clear jars were filled with the regular spices - dried basil, cumin, sweet chilli powder - but the others contained an out of the ordinary array of dried wildflowers, edible weeds, and diced unknowns. What else would you expect from one child of Hecate and a girl of Native American heritage with a background in herbal medicine?

As Kiren took refuge in her bedroom and got dressed, Marilyn peeked in the pot. Lifting the lid cautiously, she peeked inside to see a concoction that looked innocent enough and the pleasant scent of pomegranate and cinnamon wafted towards her. "I'll take your word for it this time. It smells great!" Marilyn called out, regarding Kiren's statement about the possible bitterness. Let Marilyn tell you that being the first in line guinea pig for some of Kiren's sour and bitter potions for 'strength' or 'better skin' is not always the greatest. Still, Marilyn tried them. Most of them worked quite well in the end. "Sure, why not!" Marilyn said surely, pulling a sea-foam green mug out of the cupboard and tipping it in Kiren's direction.

Suddenly, the thought popping into her head, Marilyn recalled the gifts she brought back from her reserve to give out to her friends. Excitedly, she places the mug back onto the counter, "But first I have something for you!" Without waiting for Kiren's reply, Marilyn dashes into her bedroom and grabs a small black baggy made of velvet fabric and returns back to her original position. The contents of the bag clattered as she searched, eventually pulling out the bracelet that she had picked out for Kiren. She pushed the bangle into Kiren's hand as she spoke, "A woman on my reserve collects wildflowers and turns them into jewelry- I thought you'd like this one." Marilyn couldn't help the way her lips curled at the corners of her mouth in anticipation. "They're real flowers in there! I thought they so pretty, so I bought a couple for friends!"

The soft vibrations of her phone in her hand pulled Marilyn's attention away from Kiren for a split second.

[From Mandy♥]
[YOU'VE REPLACED ME WITH ANOTHER REDHEAD! :O How dare ye?! What about all the banter and craic we have? Did it mean nothing?! Well you can forget your present!
P.S. I may be a bit late to breakfast, gonna catch up with Jensen and then come down :3 x]


Marilyn could barely suppress her giggle when Amanda's distinct Northern Irish accent came to mind as Marilyn read the message. Marilyn loved the girl to bits and pieces- weirdness and all.

[To Mandy♥]
[ WELL FINE! PERHAPS MY NEW REDHEADED FRIEND WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE PRESENT I WAS SUPPOSED TO GIVE TO YOU >:( I'm kidding, you're the only redhead for me <3 Come find me after your visit :) ]


[From TESS!]
[ Yeah, I'll be downstairs in a few. Food! :) ]

[To TESS!]
[I'll meet you half way and we can head over there together! :D]


Placing her phone back into her pocket, Marilyn's attentions turned back to Kiren and she motioned to her mug for some of the concoction. "I'm going to meet up with Tess and Amanda after this myself. Grab some breakfast before orientation!"

Soon after Kyle awkwardly made him presence known to Shyroe, she responded, stuttering and smiling at him, "Oh! H-Hi.." She waved at him and Kyle smiled. "Y-You like Fall Out Boy? C-cool!" She suddenly asked him, "Yeah... hehe, they're my actually favourite band... actually." He smiled at her again and she let out a small chuckle, Kyle didn't think much of it, although she started to blush and she spat out an explaination; "I-I wasn't laughing at you a-a mean way! I mean- Y-You're really cut- I got to go.." Before she left, she wrote down her number, so he could text her. They smiled at eachother before she jogged off. Kyle smiled gleefully as he checked his phone.

[From: Mandy Cartrider]
[Who is this Kyle you speak of? I know no Kyle! :O Jk jk! It was good! Well I mean as good as a summer in Northern Ireland can be after spending a whole year in Greece, how was yours Kylie? :P x]

[To: Mandy Cartrider]
[Not bad, just reading comic books, playing videogames and missing Comic Con and E3. So, overall, it was alright, but I had too experience both from my computer desk chair. Anyway. I would come over and talk to you in person but I want to think about what just happened over here.]


Kyle put his phone back into his pocket and leaned back against the tree stump, listening to the music in his ears and continuing to read the book he had sitting beside him.

Jensen finally made it to Amanda's room. He took a long way around so he could have some time for cooling off after his little 'talk' with the baby sis. He didn't want to see Amanda while he was still steaming. He knocked on her door, and waited on her to answer. He held up the small plastic bag that he was carrying around. He hoped that she liked his gifts. He hates getting gifts for others, he's never really sure what to get them. So he's hoping that he knows Amanda well enough to have gotten her some good gifts.

When she opened the door he was caught a little off guard by her jump-hug. But he caught her anyways. He had an uncontrolable smile sweep across his face. "So ya missed me I take it?" He smirked as she led him inside. Jensen took a seat as he waited for Amanda to bring him his gifts. He was a bit nervous, as all he could think about was what gifts she gave him. What if they were better than his? More expensive? He looked at the candy, and the t-shirt she gave him, still with an uncontrolable smile.

"Hey," Jensen said as he placed his index finger, and thumb on Amanda's chin to bring her face up to his. "They aren't 'silly things'. I love 'em." He said before he leaned in for a big, passionate smooch on her lips. "I got you some stuff for you too. I hope you like 'em. You know I'm not good at giving gifts." He said with a grin as he pulled away from her. He grabbed the bag he was carrying, and took out the two gifts he got for her. First was a book, the first in the Outlander series.

"Wasn't sure if you had this one or not. It seemed like it was your thing. It was pretty hard to find actually, last one in the book store I got it at. It's kinda blown up since that show." He said with a smile as he handed it to her. Romance novels aren't his thing. The Thunderer needs spaceships or he gets cranky. The next gift he took out was a simple seashell. He knew she liked them, and when he saw it he figured she'd love it. "I hope you like it. I know you like shells."

"My 'mum' is alright." He smirked, poking at her cute accent when he said mum. "I didn't spend a whole lot of time at home. Maybe a couple weeks. Mark was just too much of an ass, and it was almost too tempting to play some live-action inFAMOUS with him. So I decided to spend my summer having fun. I flew around a bit. Went to California, caught the last few days of Comicon there. I found that shell at a beach there in fact." Jensen stated.

"Sorry I took so long to get here. Need to cool off after talking with the Princess. I swear it's more productive bashing your head against a wall." He stated, obviously talking about Alexandria. "She was lucky that I had more...pressing matters, or else it would have been a big, well bigger, blow out." He smirked as he moved closer to his more 'pressing matters'. He leaned in closer to her, and stole another kiss. "So what about you babe? Did you have fun doing whatever it is you Irish....er...British folks do?" He asked, nearly making the mistake of calling her Irish.

He heard her phone go off a few times to signal that she got a few texts. "Well someone's in high demand today aren't they? Should I be jealous?" He smirked as he leaned back in, and began kissing down her neck.

Amanda rolled her eyes when Jensen called her out on missing her, before retorting. "Oh please, the only thing I missed from here was the sun." She teased him, hesitating before finishing her sentence with a sly grin. "It's be stupid to miss you, you aren't from here." Placing the bag in his lap after taking the seat next to him, she fidgeted nervously with her hands, rubbing them together until he lifted her head up with his finger and kissed her, a wave of relief rolled over her and her bright smile returned when he pulled away.

When Jensen lifted her gifts from the bag, Amanda bit her lower lip with excitement, she couldn't see past his huge shoulders as he bent down to retrieve them, and when he told her what they were she tilted her head and, with a smile, scolded him. "Hey, don't spoil the surprise." She gave him a light nudge as she shook her head. "Imma just pretend, I didn't know what they were." When she finally saw them, her face was that of pure surprise, she wasn't even faking it she genuinely was surprised. "Whoever told you, you weren't got at gifts... They're an idiot." Amanda took both the gifts from him with the utmost delicacy. "You said this was the last book in the shop? The rarest version, a first edition, and the last in stock." Amanda looked up at him, her smile was humble yet brighter than anything. She looked back down at the shell and admired it's shape, it's pattern, it's colour, her smile couldn't have gotten any brighter. "I should just send you out shell hunting for me." She teased him, with another nudge. "Thank you, Jensen, these are amazing gifts. I love... them." Amanda hesitated, she had to stop herself from saying you and mentally slapped herself, perhaps she could play it off as shock over the gifts. She gently set the book and shell beside her, before tenderly pulling him in for a kiss, a light peck in place of a full on kiss. Before gently moving her gifts to a much safer position on her bookcase and listening to his summer.

Her eyebrows furrowed when he mocked her use of the word 'mum', in place of the american 'mom', she rolled her eyes as she returned to her seat. She laughed at his joke about inFamous, it was one of the few games she had actually completed, well she completed First Light and watched her brother play Second Son, she basically played it. "That was a good game..." She heard herself mutter before shaking her head and returning to the conversation. "Well I'm glad you had fun without me!" She pretended to be annoyed at him, even if he could see right through the joke because she was as melodramatic as ever, she threw her hands up and even twisted her body round so as she wasn't facing him. Amanda twisted back when Jensen apologised for being late, she simply rolled her eyes with a smile. "It's okay... To be perfectly honest, I wasn't even ready..." She admitted with no humility, hoping to cheer him up and make him forget about the incident. When he kissed her, she didn't let him pulled back so quickly, instead she made it several kisses instead of just his intended singular kiss.

Amanda simply shrugged when Jensen asked about her summer, she was put on the spot and her mind drew a blank. "I hung out with my family?" She asked herself, slowly nodding her head as if to tell herself she did indeed do that. "Dad was working a lot, so didn't really get to see as much as I had hoped, I mean he had like 2 weeks off and we did loads, but it wasn't nearly as much time as I'd hoped." She shrugged, a slight sadness to her smile at that point. "But I got to spend more than enough time with my step-mum and step-brother, as well as my sister." Her smile was more reinforced, but remembering she didn't get to see much of her dad had left a lingering sadness in her eyes. "Oh and my aunt!" She excitedly added in, forgetting she'd spent time with her aunt and her husband.

Amanda hadn't even noticed her phone until Jensen pointed out the messages she had received and joked at being jealous, to which she seriously replied. "It's Mari, Aiden and Kyle," However, followed it up with a sarcastic finishing phrase. "Oh yeah, they swooped in while you were gone. Sorry about that." Amanda fought with herself as Jensen kissed down her neck, he knew that was her one spot and Amanda hated not replying to texts, even if it would be rude in company, she was at a loss. But she eventually gave in and left the phone to the side, twisting to met Jensen's mouth, stopping him from kissing her neck, she pushed him back on the bed and climbed on top of him, kissing him intensely as she did so.

***

Amanda lay under the covers, her leg resting on top of Jensen's, her chin rested on her hands which were placed on his chest,
"Well, maybe I did miss you." She teased before grabbing her phone and reading the messages.

[From: Aiden]
[I hope the its facial features are perfectly symmetrical. I want the prettiest toad around. I believe what's important is what they believe in >;3]

[To: Aiden]
[I'm going to pick out the most Christianly devout frog, a frog that only swims in the holiest of waters. x]


Amanda quickly typed the message, smirking to herself as she did so.

[From: Mari]
[ WELL FINE! PERHAPS MY NEW REDHEADED FRIEND WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE PRESENT I WAS SUPPOSED TO GIVE TO YOU >:( I'm kidding, you're the only redhead for me <3 Come find me after your visit :) ]

Amanda chuckled to herself, she didn't care if Jensen found her weird for it, he was stuck with her weirdness.
[To: Mari]
[NO! COME BACK SENPAI| I LOVE YOU LONG TIME! T.T Lol so am I... I don't love you, pfft! I shall, will I bring your gift to the breakyfast of give it to you later? x]


[From: Kylie]
[Not bad, just reading comic books, playing videogames and missing Comic Con and E3. So, overall, it was alright, but I had too experience both from my computer desk chair. Anyway. I would come over and talk to you in person but I want to think about what just happened over here.]

Amanda heard the door knock from her room and she went to answer it as she typed a reply to Kyle.
[To: Kylie]
[Damn that mustn't have been comfortable, some video games last hours xD What just happened where? Oh my god, did Aiden blow something up? Are you alright? x]


Amanda tossed her phone beside her and returned her attention to Jensen, "And I'm all yours again." She looked at the clock on her bedside. "For about 10 minutes, we should get some breakfast before we have to go to this Orientation day, which feels weird, something seems off about this year... I think it might just be because it's our last year." She shrugged it off before going red and realising she was talking too much.

Huh. So Zappy had asked Otter out. Aiden's mood immediately darkened, and he ran a hand through his hair in mild irritation. It wasn't very like him to openly display signs of discontentment although that may also be because very few things can actually get under his skin. He treats the world around him with detachment and contempt behind a friendly façade, so the son of Zeus had something he could be proud of: Daniel had found something he cared about although people would be hard-pressed to make Aiden admit his emotional attachment to Otter. Statistics were Daniel's side, making him out to be a good guy and Aiden's mother was the goddess of choice after all, so who was he to intervene. At least for now. Besides, it may not be anything serious so Aiden forced himself to settle down before he worsened his half-sister's state of unease.

"I think he has the guts to accept any honest answer," he commented even if he was hoping that Otter would tear the meddling half-life's heart into pieces. It would be hitting two birds with one stone. He wasn't too sure about someone as easily spooked as Otter attending parties though. He had noticed that she really disliked body contact, something that was plentiful in parties. Sprinkle a little alcohol and other substances into the mix and people tend to get a bit handsy. The mere thought of it had him frowning, even if he enjoyed parties for all the fascinating interactions that may take place. Heck, he may not even need to lift a finger for something catastrophic to happen. He had not received any invitation per say, but he would find a way to get in.

His phone chimed again, which played in Otter's favor. He could see that she needed her alone time and was already feeling rather guilty about the situation, so Aiden took the opportunity to fish out his phone and pretend to be preoccupied. "I'll see you then. I gotta go now."

        To: Amanda Cartwright
        A sacrifice for me to corrupt? How kind of you! :O btw, I heard there's a party happening this evening. Any info on that?
And speak of the Devil…Keisuke was there, waiting at the door. "Just promise me that you won't let anyone pressure you into doing something you are not comfortable doing," he added just as he brushed past the other boy, eyeing him pointedly. All evidence pointed towards Daniel being an honest and respectful guy, but nothing was 100% improbable. Having a close sibling was not something he was used to and he intended to keep his happy.

Marilyn giggled at the distant 'I love you' that echoed from the far end of the hallway, cheek still warm from the friendly kiss of a dearly missed friend. Watching Kiren scuttle about as she did brought merriment to her heart. Though in the end, Kiren's quick departure gave Marilyn little time to compliment her on the pleasantly fruity flavour of her convocation, one which was not too sweet and not too sour, unlike potions in the past. The kick of cinnamon left a refreshing tingle at the back of her mouth as she downed the last of the beverage, the heat of it not bothering the daughter of Apollo. The spicy zest lingered, even when Marilyn collected herself and slipped on her shoes. With a simple flick of a wrist, the lights flicked off and, once satisfied with the darkness of the room, Marilyn was off to the cafeteria.

Though Marilyn was eager to visit her friends, she couldn't help but slow her stride to lengthen the time she had to admire the academy. Of course the academy was something to be admired for it's intricate infrastructure, every stone, brick, and plank placed in a way that constructed a stunning visual. Also, Greece was something wonderful and breathtaking, especially for Marilyn who hadn't traveled further than out of her state growing up. However, at this time of year, when the leaves turned a vibrant array of red, orange, and yellow, it was more beautiful than ever. Even the air at a different taste; it was clean and crisp and just smelled like autumn.

Marilyn's steps faltered, becoming an odd, uneven gait as she became once again distracted by the messages appearing on her phone.

[From: TESS!]
[I think I'm just gonna go work in the shop. Not really hungry.]


Marilyn's eyebrows furrowed in confusion. This was unlike Tess- well, not unlike her to constantly be in her workshop, but it was definitely strange for her to back out of their meetings so suddenly.

[To: TESS!]
[What's up? Something happen? :( I can bring you a muffin or toast or something? ]


[From: The Grumpy Scotsman >:( ]
[ Let me know when you're free, a catch up would be great ]

[ To: The Grumpy Scotsman >:( ]
[ Well when are you free? We can meet up after school, maybe? ]

[From: Mandy♥]
[NO! COME BACK SENPAI| I LOVE YOU LONG TIME! T.T Lol so am I... I don't love you, pfft! I shall, will I bring your gift to the breakyfast of give it to you later? x]

[To: Mandy♥]
[ Present, gimme <3 I'm almost at the cafeteria and Tess bailed on me :( Come love me? ]

[From: Curly (Markus♥)]
[Hey Mari! I have most certainly missed you getting my slang wrong! Although if you do it these year, I think I may have to give you an F on your Northern Irish citizenship test :D I'm heading for breakfast, see you down there? :P]

[To: Curly (Markus♥)]
[ Do you think I came up the Lagan in a bubble? Quit faffin' about, our criac is fun!!! I missed you, Curly <3 I'll meet you in the cafeteria ]


Marilyn sighed fondly at Scott's overly formal way of texting and Mandy's completely informal, weird thoughts, the hole in her heart that had opened up over the summer being filled with the reappearance of close friends. The excitement of meeting up with friends intensified just as she came up to the cafeteria. Even from her current position at the entrance, she could smell the mouthwatering scents of freshly baked breads and newly toasted toast, breakfast sausages and bacon, and waffles, pancakes, and french toast. The aroma had her stomach grumbling as she hurriedly pressed on into the cafeteria.

Marilyn was met with the familiar sight of the cafeteria and it seemed that she had gotten there a bit late, for it was now filled with demi-gods on the prowl for breakfast before orientation. Marilyn would see a familiar flash of chestnut colored hair or hear a recognizable deep, resounding voice, but for now, searching for old friends will have to wait until she's grabbed herself some food. Her first instinct, as she loaded her tray, was go to for a fruit salad; the dish featured a mixture of glistening fruit and her favorite fruit, the pineapple, was abundant in her choice. Along with that, she grabbed herself a couple of Weetabix biscuits and a glass skim milk. What surprised her as she spun around in search of a table, however, was seeing Tess sitting by herself at one of the tables. Hadn't she said that she was going to be in her workroom? Nonetheless, she prowled over to where the blonde beauty sat and slid into the empty seat in front of her.

"Hey! I thought you said you'd be in your workroom." She ebbed, curiosity lacing her voice.

Kyle quickly got a text back from Amanda, pulling out his phone once again, "I should probably start getting books on my phone..." He read the message and quickly typed out a reply.

[From: Mandy Cartrider]
[Damn that mustn't have been comfortable, some video games last hours xD What just happened where? Oh my god, did Aiden blow something up? Are you alright? x]


[To: Mandy Cartrighter]
[I know, it's just not long ennooouuuuggggghhhhhh. Oh, nothing just an awkward, but oddly cute, encounter with a major - like number 1# level - crush. But, I got her number! :D]


He kept his phone his hand, just in case, and he picked up his book, he was feeling social. He got up from the tree and wandered blindly around like a lost dog, waiting for someone to confront him and start up a conversation. He was practically begging for it.

Jensen let out a satisfied sigh as he laid there next to Amanda. He watched her as she grabbed her phone, and started replying to texts, a smile seemingly permanently plastored on his face. "Have I mentioned lately how adorable you are?" He asked with a slight smirk. "If not let me rectify that; you are more adorable than a basket of puppies." He stated. He then gave her a quick kiss on her nose. He got up out of bed, and searched for his clothes. "Yeah I guess we should get breakfast. Though I could be content with a double A battery, I wouldn't want to deny you my company."

He grabbed his Nirvana shirt, and quickly threw on his clothes. "Yeah, I don't know. Something is off. Zeusy was here. Could feel it in my bones. Don't know why, but it can't be good. Him being anywhere can't be good." He stated as he finished putting on all his clothes. "So you got any plans after this is all over?" He asked. Though he won't show it, he is worried about what will happen between him, and Amanda when they finally graduate. "I think I'm gonna travel. See what there is to see out there."

"That, and maybe go find Zeusy, and kick his ass. The Almighty's should be knocked down a few pegs."
He half jokingly stated. While he'd love to kick Zeus off his high horse, he won't go looking for a fight with him. He's not that dumb. "So you ready to get your breakfast on or what? Is there anybody we're meeting, or is it just the two of us?" He asked as he scratched his head, slightly messing up his hair. "Hey, I....I uh...really missed you." He then stepped out of her room, and waited for her to get dressed.

He wanted to say something else, he wanted to tell her that he loved her, but he just wasn't able to do it. He thinks that he doesn't deserve it. So for now he'll just keep things the same with Amanda.

"Have I mentioned lately how adorable you are?" Amanda hadn't noticed Jensen watching her on her phone, until he said those words and she looked up at him, she felt bad for using her phone in his company, so she set it to the side again. "If not let me rectify that; you are more adorable than a basket of puppies." Amanda smiled at his words, but didn't have time to relish in them as Jensen quickly hopped out of the bed and started the hunt for his clothes, she ran her tongue along her lower teeth and pulled her lower lip in to chew it as she felt the heat in her cheeks rise. "Yeah I guess we should get breakfast. Though I could be content with a double A battery, I wouldn't want to deny you my company." Amanda let out an amused breath as Jensen teased her with a cocky attitude, she ran the shell pendant of her necklace along the chain, it was a slightly nervous fidgit she had, she also did it when she was exhasperated or annoyed at someone as well, but most people say at as anxiety thing, well the people who cared about her.

Amanda lay on her front, to give Jensen some privacy as he collected his clothes and put them on, of course she'd seen it all before but she simply did it out of courtesy, sometimes people are really awkward putting their clothes on and are even more awkward when someone was watching them. Whilst fiddling with her necklace she heard him answer her question about the Orientation day. "Yeah, I don't know. Something is off. Zeusy was here. Could feel it in my bones. Don't know why, but it can't be good. Him being anywhere can't be good." Amanda turned around to look at him at this point, gathering the thin blankets to cover her body.
"Zeus was here? But why?" Amanda was afraid of some members of the Pantheon and as Jensen stated, Zeus being somewhere was never a good thing. "Do you think something's happened? What reason could he have to be here?" Before Amanda could panic, Jensen had changed the subject, she let out a deep breath escaped her lungs as he did so.

"So you got any plans after this is all over? I think I'm gonna travel. See what there is to see out there.That, and maybe go find Zeusy, and kick his ass. The Almighty's should be knocked down a few pegs."" Having been caught of by the question, Amanda shuffled uncomfortably and pulled herself tighter, as if to make herself smaller, as if it would make her invisible, even the joke didn't make her feel more comfortable, she let out a slight laugh but nothing like she usually would.
'Travel the world with you.' Her brain whispered as she avoided eye contact, 'Be anywhere you want me to be. Her heart screamed as she hugged herself. But she shook her head of those answers and finally made eye contact with him.
"I don't know, only time will tell." She shrugged, there's a genuine sadness to her eyes, but her voice was simply trying to play off a nonchalant, a 'what should be, will be' attitude.

"So you ready to get your breakfast on or what? Is there anybody we're meeting, or is it just the two of us?" Amanda felt bad for how she reacted to his question and smiled when he asked about breakfast.
"Let me just get my clothes on and we'll head? I think Mari is already down there, so we'll be sitting with her and no doubt the rest of my group. I hope you don't mind?"
"Hey, I....I uh...really missed you." Jensen admitted before leaving the room, not giving Amanda a chance to respond, her smile dropped and she closed her eyes to hold back whatever emotion may rise up to the top.
"I missed you too." She whispered. 'I love you.' She screamed internally.

After retrieve and donning her underwear, Amanda noticed the LED of her phone was slowly flashing, snatching the phone she had three messages, Aiden, Marilyn and Kyle.

[From: Aiden]
[A sacrifice for me to corrupt? How kind of you! :O btw, I heard there's a party happening this evening. Any info on that?]

[To: Aiden]
[That sounded rapey, Aiden xD This is a frog... I don't mean an ugly person because that's cruel, I mean a ribbity ribbit frog :P
Also, as for the party, I haven't actually seen anyone today, so once I see Mark, I'll ask him and inform you're gatecrashing buttocks :D]


[From: Mari]
[Present, gimme <3 I'm almost at the cafeteria and Tess bailed on me :( Come love me? ]

[To: Mari]
[Yeah, I'll give you it at Breakie :P I'll be there soon :3 x]


[From: Kylie]
[I know, it's just not long ennooouuuuggggghhhhhh. Oh, nothing just an awkward, but oddly cute, encounter with a major - like number 1# level - crush. But, I got her number! :D]

[To: Kylie]
[YAY! Oh Kyle you have to tell meh!!! :O You can't leave your favourite Aphrodite in the dark like this! You know better than to do that :P And don't give me that 'it's too long to text' bull poopoo! I'm heading to the cafeteria in a minute, you can meet me there! :D #ExcitedMess]


Amanda quickly typed the messages out before quickly picking her floral dres off the flower and quickly pulling it on, she placed her feet in a pair of plain black pumps and taking a deep breath, she returned to Jensen, with a fresher smile on her face.
"Ready?"

Kyle's phone ringed one last time and he quickly typed out a reply to Amanda before going back to his book and walking to the cafeteria, waving to a few people as he walked by and bumping into a tree, pole or wall or two, every once in a while.

feeling; hungry.
location; aeonis academy school gate ➳ cafeteria.
date; 1st september // orientation day.
─────────────────────────
─────────────────────────
It was pushing twenty minutes before August realised that Shyroe wasn't going to turn up. With a small sigh, he assumed that his sister had stumbled into Kiren or one of her other friends and had forgotten all about meeting him; August didn't mind but now he was a little lost on where to go.

Reaching for his phone, August fishes it out of his jeans pocket and checks for any messages, before sending some out himself,

[ to : shy ]
forget something little sis? It's fine, I'll see you later.

[ to : mandy ]
my little sister just ditched me, is that sad? Please say I'm not a total loser :-(


After hitting send on those two messages, a faint rumbling noise emits from August's stomach. Despite having just had a bagel, he was still hungry. And so August's decision was made for him - He was off to the cafeteria for a second breakfast. Something that wasn't often uncommon for August. He'd usually have a small meal as soon as he woke, and another in the school cafeteria, not just for the food but also so that he might have the chance of seeing some friends before the start of the first school day back.

The cafeteria was only a brief walk away from where August had been stood by the school gate, so he arrived at the building shortly and was met with the most divine smell. People were clustered around the dining hall, plates full with all manner of delicious breakfast foods. August had found himself in the cafeteria right when breakfast was in full swing and it was packed. Grabbing a bowl and filling it up with a load of fresh fruit, August peers around the room for somewhere to sit.

Noticing a few empty seats on a table where Marilyn, Tessa and Mark sat, August makes a beeline for the trio. Despite only being casual friends with Tessa, August knew Marilyn and Mark well so assumed they wouldn't mind him butting in on their conversation. It wasn't until after he had greeted everyone with a cheery "Hello," and sat down that August noticed Tessa's slightly forlorn expression. "Sorry, am I interrupting something?" He asks them as a group before turning to Mark and frowning ever so slightly in a 'what happened' kind of way.

Aiden watched, impassive, as Otter and Daniel conversed. It would seem that things were going well on Otter's part now that she had calmed down. He only wished that she wouldn't be so hard on herself just for not being perfect, something that was statistically impossible to begin with and consequently pointless to worry about. He was about to leave when he heard his name get butchered by the other male.

In response to the jab, he quirked a brow and flashed a warm smile, the one he used to disarm unsuspecting victim and faculty staff, in Daniel's direction. "Why? Are you planning to ask me out too?" he responded just before snapping his fingers. Aiden's features immediately softened, taking on more feminine features while his hair lengthened until he had shoulder-length curls. His body also gained curves, and the simple shirt and trousers he had been wearing were replaced by a low-cut dress. It was a simple illusion meant to change one's appearance and was taught to all children of Hecate on their first day at Aeonis, but Aiden had to go an extra length and developed a way to trick the ear as well.

"Take care, love." It was a distinctively female and accented voice that bid goodbye to Otter as she retreated back into the safety of her dorm, and it was definitely not a man's face that winked to Daniel now that Aiden's disguise had been completed. "As for you, I will definitely see you at the party tonight. Have a nice day." Before he could hear Daniel's response, Aiden left so that he wouldn't keep his sister waiting. Once more he phased through the walls so as to join the few students who had not made their way to the cafeteria yet.

His phone let out rang again just as he had reached for it in his pocket. It was Amanda again and he lamented the fact that his illusions can not fool cameras yet else he would have sent her a 'selfie'. He was quite proud of his latest disguise after all. Instead, he had to settle with a simple text message again.


        To: Amanda Cartwright
        I'd reckon that an animal is easier to care for than a woman. It's a deal! Would I still get tax deduction if I were to wed it though? High school parties are a breeding ground for social faux pas. No gate will keep me away from bearing witness to such historical moments in a student's high school career.

Not to mention that he would get to keep an eye on the person courting his half-sister. Just thinking about it left a bad taste in his mouth, so he went and got himself another cup of jasmine tea, shrugging off his disguise in the process, and filled his plate hash browns and baked beans.

Just as he was looking for a seat, from the corner of his eye he spotted a few new faces wandering into the cafeteria with uncertainty: fresh meat, new to the scene and unable to read the numerous signs pointing in the direction of the cafeteria. They had eagerly picked up what appeared to be a bowl of cereal and orange juice. Liquids, just perfect. Aiden took a seat near the unfortunate bunch and waited.

As soon as they began to look around for a seat while carrying their tray of food, Aiden shifted his attention to their legs, giving them a mental push and tripping them. The majority of them caught themselves with superhuman reflexes, children of Ares most likely, but one of them wasn't as lucky and tumbled forward, sending the content of their tray flying.

A mixture of milk, cereal and freshly pressed orange juice took off, forming a gigantic net of liquid, and fell in the direction of one gloomy-looking Jack Clement and, as karma would have it, Aiden who had seated himself a bit too close to the warzone.

"Yep. Waiting on you babe." Jensen replied as he led the way to the cafeteria for some much needed breakfast. He couldn't help but think about the fact that Amanda's phone has been going off nonstop this morning, and the fact that the only person that he's really talked to, on purpose, has been Amanda. She was so much more popular than him, more well ajusted to the academy than him. Most times without her, or Tristen he'd just feel like the odd man out. Of course it's his fault for the most part. His interactions with most people were no more better than his with the little sis eariler. Mostly him being a sarcastic, cocky ass.

These sort of thoughts swam around in his head. To him Amanda's way too good for him. Though he's not exactly sure what they are other than bang buddies. A part of him does want to be actual boyfriend, and girlfriend with her, but then the more dominate part of him is afraid of what she'd think of him when she really got to know him. He remained quiet during the walk over there, thinking more, and more about what's going to happen to them when the year is up.

"So...uh...you nervous about graduating?" He asked, breaking the silence. "As much as I hate to admit it, I think I might miss this place when I'm gone. So weird, I didn't even want to come to this place to from the start. And now, it's about the only thing I've thought of as home for awhile. Life can have a sense of humor." He stated. He hoped by the way he was talking he didn't seem like some kind of deep thinker, or something like that. "Doubt they'd be singing my praises when I leave." He muttered to himself.

It didn't take long for them to make to the cafeteria. "So, how about you go find us a table, and I'll get us some grub? Sound like a plan?" He asked. He figured she had someone already lined up to meet for breakfast. "I'm guessing you've already got someone to meet up with huh? I don't wanna embarrass you in front of your friends." He asked with a slight smirk.
