So-ra has had a mix of precognition and clairvoyance since she was young. The visions first came to her in the form of dreams; she could see when a surprise test would come, who would win the next election, and even scarier… she saw the deaths of the people around her. As she grew the powers only became stronger and more physical. If So-ra touched a person or a thing, their history and future came to her at blinding speeds. Now, she works hard to control the visions, selecting when she allows them in or not. She can tell a persons fortune or an items past with just a touch of her bare skin.

The downfall though is that when she receives these visions, her body is rendered useless; her eyes mist over, her body becomes shaky and if a vision is very strong and stressful, she can even have nosebleeds or seizures. She is worried that one day she will witness a vision so strong that it will cause her own death.

How would you feel if you could see when and how all your friends died? This thought is the main reason So-ra tries to stay away from physical contact and sometimes social contact in general. She is a determined girl wanting to find control in her gift so that she can have normal relationships again. When it comes to friends though, she is a very loyal girl, considering she doesn't have many other friends to hold on to.

In her own time though, So-ra is very thoughtful. She tries to stay as positive as she can around others, but it is all a farce. When a girl sees as much as she has about the bad thats to come, there is bound to be problems with trying to stay pleasant and cheery. She is jealous of others who are blissfully unaware of their futures, not having to always be worrying about whats to happen. So-ra also wishes that even if she weren’t normal, that she would have been blessed with some other, simpler power.

Entering a new school would also be quite scary if she didn't already know what was going to happen. As of now, she can see herself getting there, making friends and then... Well after that, she doesn't like to speak about the oncoming dark clouds of the future. The less others knew, the more they could relax.

It is hard for her though, to keep the darkness out when the future seems all but bright.

So-ra was raised in the heart of Seoul, Korea as an only child by her grandmother. Things seemed peaceful as she aged; she impressed her family with good grades, learned different languages, mastered instruments, made friends… Meanwhile trying to keep her precognitive and clairvoyant dreams to herself. At first she thought thats all they were, dreams, but she was sorely mistaken.

One night, at the young age of ten, when So-ra was asleep she had a vision of her teacher, Mrs. Sun, jumping off their school to commit suicide, due to the pressures of society, school and her husband. When So-ra woke, she dismissed it and carried on with her life. This was a mistake. A week later, Mrs. Sun had been found deceased from the same reasoning as her dream. That’s when she knew something was wrong. She tried to explain this to her parents and grandmother, but they told her she was a foolish child for thinking she could predict the future.

This continued to happen as she grew. She could always tell her grandmother who was going to call before the phone rang, who would be on the news, what the weather was going to be the next day. Her grandma thought this was delightful and interesting, but her parents shunned So-ra from saying such things.

When her Grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, So-ra had already been crying a week before. Not just because her grandmother was sick, but because So-ra knew that wasn’t how her grandmother would die. She warned her parents that her Grandmother should not be allowed to walk outside alone, or she would surely die. They didn’t take her seriously and shunned her again and again. And then it happened. On the way back from the market, So-ra’s grandmother was killed by a drunk driver. So-ra told her parents she tried to warn them. They finally knew she wasn’t joking.

Her power was seen as “curse” and while her parent’s didn’t want her to strengthen it, their only option was to send her away to the very school where her own destiny would be completed.

"This is all so boring," Johanna groaned to herself. The end of another summer and the beginning of another school year. It was all so mundane, and expected. Johanna wondered when something exciting and different would happen. It was late morning, and many of the students were returning from spending their summer with their families. Of course not everyone had left the academy for the summer, there were the students that had stayed. Johanna had stayed at the academy because she had nowhere else to go, no family to visit. Everyone had their own reasons for staying though.

It was late morning and soon she would have to head back to her dorm for lunch, but right now she was content. It was warm out, but it wasn’t too hot to be in the sun, the summer heat having died off over the last week, and there was no wind about. It was just a nice day to be outdoors. Johanna was sitting alone up on the hill next to the Andromeda dorm building. It was her favourite place in the academy because she could see everything that was happening around the school from that hill.

She could see people trudging through the front gate loaded up with their various bags and the oval where some kids had started a ball game. Past the oval, if she squinted she could sort off see some of the people who were hanging out in the student lounge, since the wall facing her was made of glass. The student lounge was a common place for kids to hang out, as unlike their dorm buildings, there was never any adult supervision there. The lounge was decked out with tables, couches and beanbags, there was also a sitting area of the roof for when the weather was nice, like today. She couldn’t see Cyprus dorm though, since it was surrounded by the other school buildings that were filled with classrooms.

Johanna could also make out the people who were walking down the one path that led away from the school buildings and towards the Lyra Dorm building. From her view she couldn’t actually see the dorm as it was surrounded by a woodland area with plenty of trees. Though she had been down that path enough times to know what was there, the dorm laid in a large clearing of trees, next to it was a large vegetable patch, and behind it there was little dirt path that led to a large lake. Johanna wasn’t one for swimming, but when the weather warmed up, a lot of the students used the lake as the school’s own personal swimming pool.

Johanna sat and watched people arriving for a bit more, before she decided it was time to head back to the dorm and get lunch. Andromeda was different from the other dorms who would leave the meal stuff out for hours, letting their students wander in whenever they want and grab a bite to eat. Maggie always kept to strict meal times, there was generally a half an hour window and if you didn't grab food then, too bad, so sad.

Johanna arrived at her dorm to find Maggie already in full dorm head mode. She was already yelling a small group of students who had left their bags in the hallways. Though they were let off the hook when Maggie was distracted by one of the younger kids walking in with muddy shoes and leaving tracks on the floor. The poor kid looked terrified when Maggie started on him. She was always worst on the first day back, Maggie felt being super strict on the first day set a good impression for the rest of the year.

Rolling her eyes, Johanna drifted into the dining room which was filled with a bunch small tables for the students to eat at. She grabbed herself a bowl of fruit and headed to the table tucked into the corner, which was always her first preference for seating. In the back corner she could watch everyone and no one could watch her. Sitting down, she tucked her leg underneath her and starting stabbing at the fruit in front of her, waiting for someone she cared about to show up.

Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale.

This was the mantra going through So-ra’s head as she looked out her bedroom window at all the newly arriving students. She knew none of their faces of course, considering she had only began in the boarding school hallway through summer. When she arrived, there had been a good hand full of students staying there, enough to make life interesting… Now though, the swarm of kids coming onto the campus reminded her of a sea of doom. Every person has a destiny or a fate, and they liked to show themselves to So-ra. With more people here, she had to be even more careful not to make connections with others.

So-ra peeled her eyes away from the window and closed the blinds. She took a good deep breath and looked at the time. Lunch. She would get her head bitten off by their dorm head if she showed up late, but she would also starve if she didn’t go. She sighed and slipped on some actual clothing other than pyjamas that covered as much of her bare skin as she could, and then opened her door.

Luckily, her hallway wasn’t too swarmed with kids, but she could hear people coming. She took this moment to lock her door and run for her life down the back stair well. When she did come to another person, she basically threw herself out of the way. Of course she got weird looks, but it didn’t matter.

In the cafeteria, she easily avoided most people by sticking to the sides of the room, only straying away to grab herself some food. So-ra found solace in the corner of the room, where a girl she already knew was sitting. She didn’t say anything, just plopped down a few seats away from Johanna and began eating. She knew the girl was a people-watcher, and So-ra didn’t want to disturb. Maybe after this she would go find Darcy or Aiden and hope that they could distract her from feeling sick.

So-ra looked at the others too, and thought to herself, wondering what they would all be like. She didn’t like the tingle that went up her spine and the way her pulse beat faster. This would be an interesting year.

Aiden had been going hard since six a.m., preparing the house for the new students. It wasn't too unusual for him to be up early, but usually it's for his intense morning work out. He spent most of the last bit of the summer preparing for the new arrivals, but he had a few little last minute details to work out in the rooming situation. He wasn't quite sure where the house's head was. Knowing Patrick he's most likely in the library, probably having his nose in a pile of books as per usual. Once he was done he decided to get him some breakfast/lunch. He was rather hungry.

Aiden walked the halls of the Cyprus building, making his way to the dining area of the house. Along the way he introduced himself to the many new faces to the house, and pointing them in the right direction if need be. He really wanted to touch base with most of them, making sure they knew who to go to if they needed help, namely himself. Once he arrived at the dining room, he quickly grabbed him something to eat. His meal was a bowl of chili, and a ham sandwitch. He took a table in the near center of the room. As he began chowing down on his food he took his phone out of his pocket, and placed it on the table. He opened up his messages, and started to send a text as he ate.

[To: So-Ra]
[Hey, hows it goin? Doing ok with the new peeps? Wanna meet up later?]


Once it was sent he returned to his food. He was worried by her. He knew how uncomfortable she was around large groups of people, and meeting new ones. He figured she'd be a bit more relaxed if her mind was kept off the new students. Once he was finished with his food he pushed his tray aside, and leaned back in his chair. He rubbed the back of his neck, and let out an exhausted sigh. He grabbed his phone, and began texting again.

[To: Arian]
[Sup? Seen Patrick around? I haven't since this morning. Wanted to make sure he wasn't lost. Oh, and be nice to the noobs.]


Once that one was sent he put his phone away, and wiped his mouth with a napkin. He got up, and put his tray away. Once that was done he left the dining room, and began wondering the halls, not really sure what to do now.

So-ra looked up from her food when her phone buzzed on the table. She had originally been against getting a cell phone, as she hadn’t had one when she was in Korea. After being convinced by a few people, and her parents telling her it would be convenient to reach her by, they sent her the money for one. It was quite useful. Her friends could reach her by it, and the teachers. She opened the lock screen and went to messages. She smiled softly when she saw the text from Aiden.

[To: Aiden]
[It is a bit scary with so many people around… It would be nice to meet up though. I’m free now if you want to go to the usual meeting spot?]


So-ra did have a few things to do that day, but they weren’t pressing matters and she was sure Aiden would accompany her if she asked. She was pretty lucky to have him as a friend. He would seemingly do anything for her, didn’t mind her powers, always cheered her up… Aiden was a wonderful person with interesting powers. He and Darcy were the first people she ever felt connected to in the school. They took her under their wings and showed her how the school worked.

Once her food was completely finished, she looked at Johanna and laughed. She was always so tied up in watching other people she barely noticed what was around her; not that So-Ra was very noticeable to begin with. She waved a hand to the girl.

“Have a good first day… Try and stay out of trouble.” She said, not even sure if Johanna was listening, before taking her leave. She discarded her tray and took the back way out of the Andromeda building; too many people out front.

The bench out back was nice and secluded, so she decided to plop down there in wait of Aiden’s next message. She didn’t want to make the perilous journey across campus unless she really needed to. It’s not that she didn’t like people… Its just that her powers kind of limited her to how much she could socialize.

When So-ra’s phone buzzed again, she assumed it to be Aiden, but instead it was Rose. AKA, Student council president. AKA, a person she didn’t want to be meeting. The message asked for her to meet up with the girl in hopes to discuss how she was settling in. So-Ra had already been there a month, so she would have assumed meet ups with Head Residents and such would be over… But if it was necessary she couldn’t say no. She replied to Rose saying she would come as soon as possible and then went back to message Aiden.

[To: Aiden]
[Change of plans, Rose needs to meet with me. Come for backup? She scarier than all the new kids combined!]

xxxIt should come as a surprise to no one at all that the Dahl twins are not among those who are lugging their things back to a place which is their home for only the academic year. After all, the two have been living at the Academy year round since they first came to the school at a young age. Their mother is in possession of fae blood, hers giving her the gift of persuasion over people in a manner somewhat similar to her son's. This ability had given her an incredible amount of power throughout her life and, indirectly, a careless streak too wide for children to be left wandering stupidly in it. By the time the Dahls were old enough to have been able to deal with life themselves and gone to visit their mother during the summer, they had little desire to meet the woman who existed only in postcards and long, awkward phone calls on holidays. So they are known to rarely leave on holidays. Some of the staff were relieved for this when the children were younger and rowdier and Darcy followed her brother around like an excited puppy. They were terrible little things, Ronan freely doling out the desire to eat bugs, do his homework, jump off of trees, etc, and Darcy obediently making people slaves to their own impulses. At that age, the normal world would have been at risk of their schemes.

xxxAnd maybe soon it will be at risk of falling to Ronan's feet. For now, however, the two of them are in the Andromeda dorm, safely within school grounds. As if timed to the same internal clock, both of them step out of their dorms at the same time. Perhaps due to Maggie's love of order, the rooms are organized by alphabet, leaving the twins separated only by a wall. When they were younger and one had a nightmare, they would slip into the other's room and fall asleep whispering. Although they remain close, the nightmares are now kept the business of the one experiencing them. "Good morning, Darc. Ready for a lovely morning meal with our beloved Maggie?" Ronan greets his sister as they fall into step with one another. Even now, Darcy automatically times her steps to match his, though the brother who was once identical to her has now grown longer limbs, allowing him to move with a more leisurely pace than she does. "At least Mrs. Hentley doesn't throw a tantrum if her foods touch," Darcy responds lightly, raising an eyebrow at her brother. In childhood he was one of those sorts of picky eaters. Ronan responds only with a grin, angling his walk so that he bumps her against the wall slightly. Darcy is wearing her accustomed lightweight outerwear, so there is no threat.

xxx"If peas and carrots touch they become deadly poison. Everyone knows that, Darcy- I don't make the rules," he speaks with complete sincerity, so genuine a fool might believe him. Darcy snorts as the round the corner into the dining hall. "Following the rules being one of your strongest resolutions, of course."

xxxImmediately Ronan notices Johanna sitting in a corner by herself, tucked away and people watching. Darcy notices the girl as well, but rather than continuing to look immediately glances around in the hopes of finding someone else: So-Ra or Perry, perhaps. But none are immediately in sight, so she ends up going through the breakfast line with Ronan and sitting with Johanna, on the other side of her brother.

xxx"Popular as always, I see."

xxxDarcy curls her fingers around the edges of her unnecessary sweater. Isn't it hot? she's been asked a million times. "Oh, ack, I forgot I'm supposed to go help with new people. See you in class Ronan. Johanna." Darcy is rarely in the mood to see Johanna and her brother interact, building one poor idea on top of another, especially not this early in the morning. So she lies quickly and stands up, orange juice hardly touched. She isn't much of a breakfast person.

Ronan doesn't really have to guess why Darcy leaves. But if she hadn't become such a worrier he wouldn't have found a new partner in crime, it really is more her fault than his. So he justifies it. "See ya, sis. If you see Maggie give her my- oh wait, I think I can hear her yelling at someone. Perhaps not a great time." And Darcy is off. Ronan takes a bite of cantaloupe from his mixed fruit bowl.

Across the room from where Johanna was eating, there was a dark haired girl sitting on a table by herself. Johanna knew they girl wasn't all the popular and had a bit of a reputation around the school as a weirdo. She was completely absorbed in watching the girl that she didn't even realising what was going on around her. Johanna mentally noted the way the girl fidgeted around, her hands never staying still, a sure sign on nerves. Then there was the fact the girl held her head low, and kept her arms tucked in close her, as if trying to disappear. This was Johanna's favourite activity, watching people, examine them like specimens under a microscope.

Then a hand appearing in front of her face, brought Johanna back to reality. She blinked rapidly, raising her eyebrows in surprise. Since when had So-Ra been sitting next her, and how had she finished her meal when Johanna had only eaten a few pieces of fruit. “Have a good first day… Try and stay out of trouble.”

"Me, trouble? Never." Johanna replied easily as she slumped back into her chair. She pushed her bowl of fruit away from her, no longer hungry. She never had much of an appetite.

"Popular as always, I see." Ronan said as he slid into the seat next to Johanna. Johanna just rolled her eyes.

"Yep, it's a curse you'll never have to worry about though." Johanna then leaned around Ronan to his sister that had also sat on Johanna's table. For the first time today she actually smiled, though a very obviously faked smile, "Hey, Darcy!" Johanna knew how Darcy felt about her, and the feeling was mutual. Hence she frequently went out of her way to annoy the other girl. Then Darcy made something up and left, leaving Johanna and Ronan on their own.

"See ya, sis. If you see Maggie give her my- oh wait, I think I can hear her yelling at someone. Perhaps not a great time." Ronan said to her sister as she left them.

Johanna laughed unenthusiastically. "There is never an okay time with the woman, only ever a not so horrible time." Johanna was always a little more annoyed with Maggie than most. Being the troublemaker she is, she has been on the receiving end of Maggie's anger for far too many years. Seriously, who even remembers the time Johanna got Ronan to convince Maggie to go on a sudden week long holiday, then took Maggie's appearance and bossed every one around the dorm. There was that time she used her magic to pretend to be one of Maggie's sons to get money out of her, but she gave the money back, eventually. Oh, and of course, when Maggie had caught her sneaking into Ronan's room after lights out, but seriously, that was one time!

"So, anyway. Things should get a little more exciting around here with everyone returning," Johanna said turning to Ronan, though still watching the room for anything interesting out of the corner of her eye. "I'm hoping to make this year just as interesting as we have made all the rest." She then reached over and took one of the pieces on cantaloupe from Ronan's bowl. The fruit in Ronan's bowl looked much more appealing then the fruit in her hardly eaten bowl. Johanna always wanted what she didn't have.
