The Quiet and melancholic student has captured his attention. No matter how hard he tries not to, he cannot help but stare at her and try to talk to her. It confuses and infuriates him that anyone could cause the careful walls he built around himself to crumble.

Spot/ Role
The Student Body President

Face Claim
Mashima Taichi

Appearance Details
"What do I look like? ... I have two arms... Two legs... Pink hair." Well, you know how guys are. Yamada cannot describe how he looks to save his lfie. Yamada is on the tall side, at about 6"1. His hair is naturally black, but over the years, Yamada has decided to dye it pink because he thinks he rather looks good with it that way. His eyes are what you might call hazel. They are the color of flames and can shift between yellowish red to yellowish brown. Althought Yamada is a tall person, he is far from being a stick figure. Rather, he possesses lean strong muscles, a result from his studying of martial arts, particularly Tai-Chi. He tends to dress in dark colors such as black, a forest greenm, or dark blue.

Personality

        ⌈ Likes/ Loves/ Desires/ Fancys ♥
        ☑ Being in Control
        ☑ Italian Food
        ☑ Sweets
        ☑ Friends (unknown to himself)
        ☑ Martial Arts
        ⌈ Dislikes/ Hates/ Detests/ Fears ☠
        ☒ Chaos
        ☒ Miss Meli's random actions
        ☒ Being Vulnerable
        ☒ Stupidity
        ☒ Being Alone


Yamada may be what you would call a bit of a cold personality. He does not have too many true friends, though he has plenty of acquaintences, admirers, and even minions. He does not enjoy showing his vulnerable side, but at the same time, he enjoys dissecting other peopl'es emotions, hopes, fears, desires, and weaknesses. He possesses a certain confidence that comes from being born into wealth and possessing a great intellect, greater than most of those around him. He is not afraid to defend his viewpoints with a calm, logical argument while appealing to certain values that his audience holds. Yamada can be slightly manipulative and almost single-minded in pursuit of his goals and desires. Nonetheless, he can be quite charming and persuasive. Yamada has a great gift when it comes to reading people and becomes intrigued when he senses there is more to someone than meets the eye. That may be one of the reasons why he is attracted to his crush. Yamada is a natural leader and often assumes people will listen to him. When crossed, however, he can be quite cruel.

Nonetheless, Yamada has a soft side to him. He never deliberately goes out of his way to make trouble for people who have done him no harm and often finds himself annoyed with people who are needlessly cruel. He also has a slight vulnerability about him when it comes to things that he cannot control. He hates it when one of his plans falls apart and he doesn't know how to salvage the situation. He has a need to be in control of every situation he finds himself in and can panic when things are going terribly wrong. He is also quite lonely. He is admired by many people at school, but he has no true friends. This loneliness is compounded by his family situation. His parents are divorced and do not often pay much attention to him and he is used to a large empty house greeting him.

Family
  • Father - Alive: Is usually found in New York on Wall Street
  • Mother - Alive: As a model, she is often on the fashion scene, modeling clothes or living it up with friends.

Brief History
Yamada Taiki was born to an American businessman and a Japanese model in Tokyo 17 years ago. The two had randomly met at a mutual friend's party in his penthoues and thanks to a combination of alcohol, flirtation, and mutual lust, they slept together and Yamada's mother became pregnant with him. To their credit, they married and raised Yamada for the first five years of his life together, but they were two fundamentally different people. They divorced and for a while, Yamada was shuttled between the United States and Japan, learning both English and Japanese. However, as he grew older, both of his parents began to focus more on their own lives: his father on the Wall Street life and his mother on the glamors of being a successful model. Thus, begining in middle school, Yamada visited his father only rarely and was responsible for himself. He tells himself that he doesn't need his parents and refuses to feel anything about their absence.

As a rich kid with a semi-famous mother, Yamada was all but guaranteed in the popular clique at school. Nonetheless, though he enjoys his popularity, he doesn't really like too many of the popular kids. Throughout Middle School and High School, he has invested his time in a number of extraciricular activities, his favorites being martial arts and Student Council. On the Sudent Council, he enjoyed maneuvering his way to the position of Student Body President, exhilerated by the thrill of defeating his rivals and enjoying the power he has over influencing life at school. It is in martial arts, however, that Yamada regularly lets out steam. As he practices martial arts, the pain he feells is expressed through kicks, punches, grabs, and throws, sometiems causing injury to an unexperienced oppponent.

For awhile now, he could not help but become interested in a particular girl, Tembelle Yuu P. He can tell she is different from others and he has found himself staring at her and wanting to talk with her. For this reason, he followed her to Theatre Club, quite surprised by his own actions.

So begins...

Foreplay: Trial exercise

↷ Miss Meli

She'd been walking up to the school and think, that day. No, she did not own any car - such sheet of metal that could roll all around without anyone’s control - honestly; it'd been frightening only to think of getting into such things. No, Miss Meli preferred to walk, elegant and without any fear of crashing into the next best tree. It was a balmy autumn day, not something that she'd been hoping for, but that did not really matter right now. A smile hushed on her face, only thinking of all the members of her new found theatre club: marvellous, just marvellous. She was really looking forward to going to school that day - even if it would have rained, she'd stupidly walk through it without noticing because of her thoughts flying somewhere else. It’s a place of countless ideas flying in one endless sky; Ideas that were meant only for her lovely club. It was definitely the time to announce one of it. One trial run to get down some information about their actually skills - well, in other words, observation (additional threatening) material. It was only fair to let a teacher know about their abilities right? Not like it was a crime which she'd been doing all the time. No, definitely not.

She is an awesome teacher after all, second best at school after her boyfriend.

She arrived at the school, still grinning alone like a freak as she entered the yard. In the olden days, everything seem to cause such pressure on her - yes, who might believe that the confident Miss Meli had such times! - But now, all the trees, all the different kinds of students and everything else surround her work place were her opportunity. An opportunity she saw in her future - something she believed only she - Miss Meli - is able to do. Now, this school was her proud, though it would sound silly if you take a look on that normal Japanese school in a normal district in Tokyo. Yeah, well. What you call normal there is the right now - looking to the history, it's not really normal, but abnormal. Though that is something you have to find out yourself. Anyway, as Miss Meli entered the school, every good student should already be in their classes. That's why she waited. She knew that not every student in her club might already be at school, so she waited for them to finally announce the trial she'd in mind.

Waited... and failed.

She was just too impatient to wait, even if that meant some couple of seconds. She needed to say it right now. Right now. Or everything will go to waste - whatever that everything may be she is getting at. Well, she just wanted to find an excuse to do it right now, get it? She was a mature woman after all, everything has to be reasonable!

It was 8 o'clock as she grabbed the microphone and clicked the on button. Crackles were heard through the speakers from every class room and gentle wind - then, suddenly, as everyone’s attention were caught by the upcoming announcement, as every classroom decided to shut their mouth to listen to the announcer, Miss Meli shouted. Shouted so loud, that it might cause some of people’s ears still ringing afterwards.

"ANNOUNCEMENT to all members of the theatre club! I - Miss Meli - order you to come to the old building once the clock hits 9 o'clock! I want every one of you to come, or you insist on having me go for the extreme! You hear! You have to come! Oh, and Ryo? You know what? I love you~!"

With that, the announcement ended abruptly and the tingling voice disappeared. However, the grin on Miss Meli’s face did not fade yet.

↷ Tembelle Yuu P.

Yuu woke up early that morning, and walked to the little garden in front of her grandfather’s house and started to collect the brown turned leaves, which soon enough formed two small mountains of those who had fallen. It was then when her grandfather lurked behind the slide door of the traditional Japanese house and greeted her with his usual smile. “Good morning, my daughter,”

It happened more often now that he’d mistake her for her deceased mother, but she did not mind. Although that dazzling smile may, or may not meant for her, she was still happy to receive a familiar gesture. Being again, in her kimono, she elegantly bowed. “I also wish you the best morning, grandfather,” Afterwards, it was time for her to prepare breakfast. Her grandfather was not able to care for himself any longer, so she assisted him the best she could. Never had she saw that as a burden – in fact, she loved to be any of use for him – for the one who’d cared for her after being told off by her own father. For her, he was the only one she could go back to – even after he’d completely forget about her.

Punctually, his caretaker came for him, so that she’d enough time to prepare for school. Everything was already there on the table, ready for her to grab, even in a nice order. Something she already arranged last night. Putting on every piece of her school uniform bit by bit, not rushed so it’d fit perfectly, she took her bag and bow out politely as she went for school. Her way there was not long; nevertheless, she took her time. Breathing in the fresh morning air, she’d faintly smile while relishing the morning silence – where the hectic were still far back. This was probably the main reason for her to go into school so early.

8 o’clock
As the bell rang, she’d already been on her seat, waiting for the lesson to begin. Every material needed for the lesson already was on her table – she was prepared for the lesson to start. Although then, even before the teacher could enter the classroom, a crackling sound from the speaker had shut every talking mouth in her class – as suddenly the loud voice attacked her ears, made her quickly press her palms on her ears to protect them from the tingling sound. Even then, the voice was still heard clearly, and she grasped the message. The old school building was a building not far from the new building which is no longer being used. A building that stood empty. Something caused her Goosebumps. She could only wonder about what they’ll do there exactly.


↷ Qudella Naru

Driiiiing.

Driiiing.

Driiing.


“Ugh… please, not moa….” One skilful swing with her hand, the buzzer flew down and crushed into pieces, which finally made that petite seventeen years old girl to awake from her wonderful dreams, which caused some drool hanging out of her mouth. No, she definitely was not a morning person, how hard she might try to wake up early – in the end; she always slept through the night peacefully, through all the seven hours. It was needed to retain her energies which she used all day long after all. Nevertheless, the result for her long slumber is always the same…

“Oh crap, I am late!,” Quickly jumping off the bed after realising the time, she went for the kitchen while still wearing her night clothes (of course, with teddy bears motives on it) and arranged her bento (lunchbox) and grabbed a plain bread as then she finally realised her lacking something: Her uniform! “Ùhh… I can’t swear, I can’t swear, I can’t swear!“, she repeated a couple of time as she ran upstairs, always taking two steps as she stumbled upon her own mess. Then, she couldn’t help but sizzle: “Damnit!” As she took the initiative to use her anger for an energy boost, taking her uniform and hectically put it on.

Then, slipped into her rollers, she closed every door and finally went for school. “Don’t be closed, don’t be closed, don’t be closed,” Like a mantra, she reiterated her hope – which didn’t go to waste. The guard was there, but there was still a space. A space for her to slip through. And she managed it. “I AM IN, AHAHAHAHAHA!,” She shouted like an idiot while posing in a (kinda) cool pose as the security guard chased her into the classroom.

8 o’clock
Still in the hallways, she heard that terrific announcement, and felt nothing but excitement. Not being near any speaker, the voice of Miss Meli speaking was not as loud as it is heard in a classroom. A wide smile is showed on her small round face as she opened the class door loudly and went for her homeroom teacher, Ryosuke Taitaijou Sensei. “Sorry for the late – eh, sorry for being late! And morning! Isn’t it a lovely morning?,” She chirped while not feeling any guilt at all.

Yamada Taiki

Yamada awoke to the sound of his alarm beeping at 5:00 A.M. Quietly, he slipped on a plain black Tai-Chi uniform and made his way to the the dojo. One good thing about having parents that had more money than they knew what to do with was the fact that he could make requests for buildings like this for Christmas. In fact, his mother was rather pleased when he asked and insisted on remodeling the entire Château. His mother had a knack for using French words, but she was not far off in describing their home thus. Their home was certainly the size of a manor house meant for nobility or gentry in French-speaking regions. Really, it was an amalgram of different styles: English, French, Italian, Russian, American, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese. Personally, Yamada felt their home or Château possessed all style and no substance. He was grateful that his dojo remained simple. Traditionally Japanese, but simple.

After a couple hours of practicing the movements of Tai-Chi, Yamada felt relaxed. His muscles were loosened and his mind was possessed of an inner calm. He made his way to the kitchen, not surprised to find a number of people passed out in various places: on couches or on chairs, at the cocktail bar, and even on the floor. A few, he was certain,had probably made theri way to the guest rooms. For a moment, he missed his father's penthouse in New York City. His father did not socialize nearly as much as his mother and rarely invited more than a few guests over to his home. It was neatly ordered and lacked the passed out form of the occasional middle-aged guest, futilely trying to keep up with the next generation.

That morning, he asked the chef to cook him a simple breakfast of pastries, fruit, and gyokuro tea. He ate slowly, savoring the taste of his meal and thanked the chef before heading for school.

He chose to walk to school that day, as was his habit. It was still early and quiet, but a couple students stopped him and joined him. He said nothing as a bespectacled boy his age joined him along with a girl who, by the looks of it, had dyed her hair a bright blonde. He said nothing. He himself dyed his own hair.

"Good morning, Yamada-kun!" she exclaimed, drowning out the other boy's greeting. Yamada nodded at them.

"Akira-san. Hiro-san," he greeted politely with a polite smile, "How are you today?"

"Like, totally awesome. I got a new idea for a new event. You know, the school doesn't ever celebrate Summer holidays, with Summer vacation and all. I was thinking we push those missed holidays together into a "Summer Remembrance" week," she told him brightly. Hiro frowned at her.

"You just want to turn it in a whole week of nothing but American Independence Day," Hiro told her. Yamada suppressed a sigh. Just as in America, you got people who were obsessed with Japanese culture, you got people in Japan who were obsessed with American culture. The previous summer, when he was visiting his dad, Yamada had invited both of them with them in the hopes of curing Akira of her obsession. It only deepened it.

"I know! Don't you remember the fireworks and the neat costumes and the music! Oh, and the food. And the carnival and ball in Bristol... Oh, and the clowns were hilarious and..."

"We don't have the money in the budget for all that, Akira-chan. Tell her, Yamada-kun," Hiro pleaded. For a moment, he had been distracted. He watched Tembelle Yuu from across the street, distinct in one of her kimonos. Suddenly, he wished he had been walking with her.

"Yamada-kun!" Akira practically shouted, tearing Hiro's eyes from the girl. He sighed.

"Akira-san, Hiro-san is Treasurer for a reason. It's his job to save money," he told her. Before she opened her mouth to complain, however, Hiro continued, "Hiro-san, you know Akira-san will not quit on this. Maybe you can give her something."

"Aww... That's sweet, Yamada-kun..."

The two continued to argue, but Hiro paid no attention to either Akira's exclamations nor her flirtations nor the pained look on Hiro's face when he noticed. Honestly, the two could be quite tiresome. Hiro, not so much, but he was never far away from Akira, who made enough trouble for the both of them. Still, they were at least tolerable.

8:00
Yamada sat at his desk reading a book. Hiro and Akira weren't too far away from him when he heard Miss Meli's incessant shouting. He almost rethought his plan, but he didn't. He wanted to know more about Tembelle Yuu and he wasn't going to get to know her better without seeing more of her. He looked up to see another person enter class, Qudella Naru. He shook his head.

"It would seem that you were held up by Meli-sensei, weren't you Qudella-san?" he asked, subtly giving her a way out of a potential detention.

#, as written by Damioa
Ryo didn't like arriving to the school early. It was more of something he was programmed to do. there was a number of reasons he had to arrive early but the number one reason he hated most of all was catching up on work he missed while dealing with a certain someone. Heh, who was he kidding? He would've skipped all the work in the world to do anything with that person. Still, since he was an adult, work had to be done. He sat still dabbling through the numerous numbers of papers on his desk. the last couple of test seemed to have too many trick questions for the students. He prefered his test to be hard but not too hard. No one recieved an F but only a few student got A's. He bit his thumb in excitement. It was only the begginning of the year but he was feeling the natural joys of being able to teach students new things and with this test he saw that he could easilly teach students his very own formulas for equations or shortcutts if you will. Either way, they'll still learn it and they'll have a one up on other students.

It wasn't long until his students started coming and he stated taking role. Each student seemed to be on time except a few, but he decided to call their names last. He was enjoying having at least some none delinquent students but he couldn't blame the ones that did skip. Afterall, he himself use to skip school as a child. So as per usual he called their names last and everyone who he saw first. They had a few extra minutes thanks to Miss Meli's annoucement. His face frowned and the only sound in the classroom after that was the sound of him slapping his palm against his forehead.

You shouldn't act like you rule the school, or openly say you love people on the announcements.

That's what he thought to himself, but right after he sent her a text message saying, "I love you too."

Just then, another disterbance came in as Qudella Naru seemed to ninja herself into class just to yell, “I AM IN, AHAHAHAHAHA!,”.
He glared down at her and she just passively said, “Sorry for the late – eh, sorry for being late! And morning! Isn’t it a lovely morning?"

"Yes it is," He replied, "Now take your seat before I mark you absent for the day. Hojo!!!"
"Yes sensei." His least favorite student stood up.
"Seeing as I have to punish someone for being late and you want to be the first one here everyday, take this hallpass and get the hell out my class!!!"
"Yes Papa.... I- I mean Sensei." The boy nervously said while leaving his room.
"And stop calling me Papa. I'm not you father!!!!."

This kid had to be the person he hated most in the universe. It was because of him that Ryo Taitaijou was known as Papa-sensei. A nickname he despised. He never really liked fathers and much prefered not to be called one himself. Turning to the class he then said, "Well you heard the announcement. Now that role call is over, I suggest you not be late." Afterwards he left the class and headed for the old school building. Yes, he too was part of the Drama club. Not as a club member. Not as overseeer. well on paper he was. But, as a slave. Yes that was his off paper title. Slave to the crazy woman who ran the whole thing. Miss Meli.
