Description

Name: Aiden Dyre.

Nickname: “Aiden” isn’t really a name that needs shortening, y’know? Guess you could call me Den.

Age: 16

Power: Super speed. You heard it, man, I’m the freakin’ Flash or something. I don’t really know how fast I can go exactly. I mean, how do you measure mach whatever? But it’s pretty damn fast. Inertia? Isn't that something to do with jets? Oh... Well, my organs haven’t liquefied yet. And I haven’t caught fire once, even my clothes. Though I might occasionally cause a bit of wind... or a sonic boom. I swear it was just one time!

When I start speeding up, for me it’s like the opposite. Everything else slows down. I can pretty much control this most of the time, but now and then – especially when I feel like I got a lot of energy – I just start speeding up outta nowhere. But when I do start, that's when I really feel like there's energy surging through me. Like I could run for miles and not get tired. Calming down after that isn't always easy.

Weaknesses? I don’t know. I mean, I guess when you run as fast as I do you really don’t want to trip. And if I try hitting something really, really fast sometimes it hurts my hand. Is that what that guy on the cartoon meant about "equal and opposite reaction?" Oh! And I eat a lot. I mean a lot. Guess I need the energy, right? Also: My system metabolizes toxins before they can do anything. Like, automatically. Without me even trying. Sounds great until you’re trying to get drunk or high. Then? Just a real downer.

Sexuality: Hate to break any hearts, guys, but I only have eyes for the ladies.

Which Side?: Good. And that is good, believe me. I know the bad guys don’t always lose in real life, but come on. Who wants to be one of those creeps? Have you seen some of the jerks they have on that side?

Likes:
  • Himself
    Some say that I'm egotistical,
    I don't even know what that means!
  • His appearance
    It's probably something to do with the way
    That I fill out my skintight blue jeans.
  • His powers
  • Girls
    Hotness preferred - not a problem at this school.
  • Flirting
  • Sex
    Casual or otherwise. Usually casual.
  • Hanging out
  • Videogames
  • Basketball
  • Sports in general
    Or really any physical activity, but with friends is more fun.
  • Music
  • Singing
    Yes, a man can sing. And damn well, might I add.
  • Acting
    I've been in some school plays. It's pretty fun. Stressful, but rewarding.
  • Friends
  • Bros
  • Pulling pranks
    Now and then, when it's funny.
  • Laughing
  • Running
  • Defying authority
    Not just for the heck of it (well, okay, sometimes for the heck of it) but if a rule's just a rule for its own sake, you can rule out caring.
  • Standing up for people
    What can I say? I have a hero complex. Besides, I don't like bullies.
  • Food
  • Light reading
    When it's not boring.
Dislikes:
  • Staying still too long
    I get restless. Always have, even before my power.
  • Being alone
  • Jerks
    All too many at this school.
  • Bullies
    There's playing pranks, there's bullying and there's a clear line between the two. Don't cross it.
  • Guys who cheat on girls
    Sure, break a girl's heart and give us all a bad name in the process. Way to go there, champ.
  • Being hungry
  • Being bored
  • Most classes
  • Strict authority
    Like I said, a rule for a rule's sake is just stupid.
  • Being told what he can’t do
    Never tell me the odds!
  • The future
  • His parents’ plans
    Don't get me started.

Fears:
The future.
I don’t like my parents’ plans for me, but the way they talk it’s not even an option. Even scarier is that if I don’t go with that I don’t know what other options I have. I’m good at some stuff, but nothing I could do for a living. It’s either corporate CEO or back-alley bum.

Ending up alone.
I’m not really looking for a long-term relationship, but I couldn’t imagine life without some friends around me. People keep telling me you lose touch after high school and college. I’ve made friends out of nowhere before and I will again, but it’s still a scary thought sometimes.

Losing control of my power.
Sometimes I just start to speed up for no reason. It usually happens when I’m feeling restless, got a lot of energy, just had sugar, you know. Usually I can just shake my head a bit, go back to normal. But sometimes it takes a bit more than that – I have to really focus to dial back the speed factor. Some nights I get this nightmare where I can’t do that. Just walking around, everyone else still as statues and me, alone, the fastest man alive. Suppose that ties in with the last thing.

Spiders.
I wasn’t always scared of spiders. Eight legs, wicked. Eight eyes, bit creepy, but okay. Webs, really cool. Then someone told me a bit more about them. Those webs don’t just catch flies – the spiders cocoon the flies like a silk coffin and inject them with this nasty poison that doesn’t just kill them; it dissolves their organs. Dissolves. Their. Organs. Then they suck out the goop through those pincers like a straw and please can I stop talking about spiders?

Personality: What do I say about me? Well, I’m awesome. Everyone tells me so. Quick-witted (hah) funny, friendly, easygoing, smile a lot, handsome, amazing in bed – I don’t do everything fast – and generally just an all-round great guy. I’ve got a bunch of interests and I meet a lot of people doing stuff. That’s great, I totally love the company. I know I can come off as cocky, arrogant, self-centered, egotistical, and so on and so forth. But to those who miss the point: I'm not. It's basically a parody - I'm playing it up for laughs. Who in the world is actually such an egomaniac he acts like this seriously?

I'll come out and say it: I am a player. That does not mean I think of women as sex objects - like half my friends are girls. What it does mean is that I believe in casual, no-strings-attached sex. It's a game played by two (sometimes more) and I couldn't get anywhere if they didn't want it too. Besides, I'm not a jerk about it. I know how to treat a lady right. The number of guys who call themselves players but treat a girl like she's just there to get them off... Just don't get me started. Point is, I don't see anything wrong with sleeping around when you're not in a relationship.

Sometimes people think I’m just some shallow idiot, good for a laugh and a beer, not much else. Pretty douchey of them. I know I don’t act as smart as I am, or seem like I'm paying attention, but if that means being serious all the time, screw it. More importantly, I don’t just call people my friends because I like how it sounds. It means I care about ’em and I’ll stick by them. I may not get in a lot of fights, but I’m strong and fast. Sometimes really fast. And I don't just stand up for my friends, either. I don't like bullies. I'll stand against them any day.

Like I said before, I’m smarter than I seem. That sounds like bragging, and to be fair so does everything I say, but it’s true. Most times I just don’t care enough to really try and learn stuff, so I have trouble focusing. ADD got nothin’ on super-speed-senses. I guess I should also mention I have a darker side. It takes a lot to push me into it, but when you make me mad, better be ready for a long grudge. I can have issues letting go.

History: Hoo boy. Where to begin? Well, my parents are... Complicated. They’re not bad – they’re supportive, they have busy jobs but always make time for me, they come to a lot of my games and even those plays I did a couple years back. And also they’re loaded. I mean ridiculously rich. They joint own this huge technologies firm, Axiomatics. I don’t even know what that means. And they’re basically grooming me to take over.

When I say it like that it sounds like they’ve got me wearing suits all the time and go to board meetings, but it’s not like that. Well, okay, there are a few board meetings. But mostly they just make sure I get good grades in some important classes, encourage me to plan ahead, teach me the ropes and let me pick up whatever hobbies I want as long as they don’t get in the way and aren’t actually dangerous or illegal. There’s just this underlying, unspoken assumption that that’s what I’m doing with my future and if I’m talking about not wanting that, that’s just teenage angst or rebellion or something.

When my power cropped up a few months ago, that shook things up a bit. They were still supportive, there was no huge drama-fest, they still love me and so on, but they were pretty anxious to keep everything under wraps. Suddenly I got all the food I wanted, but barely any sugar in the entire house. Every day when I went to school I get warned “don’t get too excited” or “be careful out there” or something. At least the board meetings stopped.

And that leads us to now. My old high school plans went out the window and I get sent here instead. All kept quiet, of course. My parents are a bit worried I won’t adapt well to living on my own, but me? I can’t wait to get started. Soon as I arrive, I’m starting the first day of the next four years of my life with a smile.

Theme Song: Bright Lights in Paradise, by Heroes for Hire. So my song. Also: Oh Lord, it's Hard to be Humble, by Mac Davis. It's so me!
Anything else: I have a massive allowance. I mean, my parents being as rich as they are, I always got a lot of money, but now I’m living “alone” it’s like I suddenly need to buy the latest iPad once for every day of the week. You won’t see me complaining.

Aiden looked up at the building before him, impressed and excited at once. So this was the school. This was where he'd be spending his next four years (barring vacations) around other people as weird as he was. It was pretty picturesque, especially in the morning light, with the sun right behind it like that. He'd made sure to arrive on foot - the limo parked and let him off about a half hour's walk away and he just ran the rest in twelve seconds. He knew from experience the kind of impression it made when you showed up to school in a limo. Not an experience he was going to repeat. Unfortunately, it seemed like his effort was wasted - there was no one around this early in the morning.

Well, that gave him a few moments to check his image. Fishing out his iPhone Aiden checked his reflection in the black screen. Hair? Perfect. Teeth? Perfect. Smile? Perfect. All up to his usual standards. Clothes for the day included a pair of faded, blue jeans (comfortable, casual and above all normal) a sharp, sky-blue jacket with blue-black flame decals (cool and totally his color) open at the front and a black T-shirt with white letters informing anyone who read "I'm too sexy for this shirt" (cocky, but pretty clearly a joke). He was also carrying a gym bag full of the basic essentials: laptop, iPad, change of clothes, poster of Keira Knightley, etc.

"Okay," he muttered to himself, "checklist done. Time to start the first day of the rest of my life." He grinned. Well, the first day of the next four years, anyway. Details, details! Confident that everything was the way he wanted it, he strode through the vast double doors to find his room, settle in and get to know his roommate.

...

Five minutes later he was still wandering the hallways and had absolutely no idea where he was. "Map," he said to himself. "That's what I should have packed." It wasn't that he was in a huge hurry; if he was, he could just search the whole place at super speed, though that would take a long time relative to him anyway. However, it was getting a bit embarrassing. Eventually he might have to admit he was lost - then the Man Council might revoke his card!

But before he could get too distraught he was drawn from his dire thoughts (hehe, dire) by a radiant vision of beauty just down the hall. A woman, older than him - early-to-mid twenties, by his estimate - fiddling with her phone and managing somehow to make even that act look stunning. Dark, wavy hair fell loosely around her shoulders and when she looked up he could see lustrous, brown eyes that matched it perfectly. And that was when he realized he had a perfect excuse to talk to her! Of course it would require him to ask for directions, but there was a hot chick like forty feet away. The Man Council would understand.

He crossed three quarters of that distance in just under a second before approaching her on foot. He cleared his throat. "Hey. 'Scuse me." Smiling a friendly, slightly embarrassed smile that was charming without being lecherous or cocky, he stepped up in front of her. For a moment he just stood there, letting her get a good look at him.

"Beautiful, I know," he said after a while, chuckling a little as he ran a few fingers through his hair. "The feeling's mutual, believe me. I'm Aiden Dyre, just got here this morning, and I am totally lost." He shrugged helplessly, still smiling and gesturing with his gym bag to illustrate the point, then extended his free hand to shake hers. "I was hoping maybe you could show me around a bit?" At that moment, as if on cue, Aiden's stomach rumbled to remind him that all that super-speed running had its price. He needed waffles more than he needed bed. "Maybe after we grab some breakfast?" He added as if he'd meant that all along. "My treat."

By some small miracle, Jason's morning routine proceeds uninterrupted. It's always a good morning when his roommate doesn't start holding up the bathroom past his allotted time or attempting to engage him in frivolous conversation. Perhaps his new roommate wasn't the type - they had only recently been paired together when Jason's last roommate graduated. Despite his petition to have a room to himself, the school wanted to make maximal use of the rooms they had. In theory, Jason couldn't blame them. If everyone who wanted a room to themselves was allowed one they might not have enough. But now he was stuck with an emotionally volatile fool for the next several months at least, perhaps more.

Well, he thought, as his new partner in this domicile began to stir, time to cut off the damage before it can be done. He waited until Michael was clearly awake and able to hear him properly, then began to speak. "I see you have finally awoken," he said flatly, beginning to pack the essentials for the day, such as his books and laptop, into his suitcase. He was already dressed for the day, as for every day, in his black suit complete with matching tie. "In case you were not aware, I am Jason Martin Blake, your new roommate. These will be the rules of the dormitory to which we will both adhere:

"There will be no loud music; fifty decibels is the absolute limit. The same applies to any and all electronic entertainment. There will be no shouting. No drinking, smoking or substance abuse will be tolerated without a medical prescription. Nothing will be left where it does not belong; each of us cleans our own messes or does not make one. Good hygiene will be observed at all times. Permission must be sought from one's roommate prior to inviting anyone into the dormitory for any reason. No visitors will remain past the hour of eleven P.M. And to save us both the time, you will never receive permission to invite any girlfriend, boyfriend or anyone else you intend to sleep with.

"For the duration of your stay here you will consider these rules inviolate. You can of course expect the same of me. Are there any questions?" He snapped his briefcase shut and looked directly at Michael for the first time since he started speaking, leveling a cold, piercing gaze at him to ensure he understood the weight of the announcement. These simple rules ought to be common sense, but after his last roommate Jason knew all too well that one could not assume that common sense would be present. But he had curbed the last one's barbarous tendencies. He would do the same here if need be.

Eric's phone came alive.

BuZzZzZ "I've got a feeling, that tonights gonna be a good night, that tonights gonna be..."


The darkness quaked around Eric until he squinted his eye lids open, beams of light filled the room from the window and Eric rose wearily. "Ok, I know I'm not in my room. So whose room begs the question?" Eric peered around but stopped when he caught a glance of something outside high up.Gabe... He shielded his eyes with an arm, "You should do that at lunch!" Eric shouted, "You'll get more attention!" It was clear Gabriel couldn't hear though that was quite obvious by the two inch thick glass, but Eric smirked and shook his head regardless, That shy airborne fox. That reminds me. "You still owe twenty from bowling!" Finished with wasting breath Eric resumed his goal of deciphering his location. I wasn't drinking... "Great." Eric flung his arms up grumpily, "I killed myself again!" Eric noticed mops and brooms. "And in a broom closet of all places!" Fortunately for Eric, dying leaves him immaculately clean, so showering wasn't his greatest concern.

BuZZZzzZ "I've got a fee.."


The phone excited itself but Eric was awake this time and caught it before it sommersalted from the janitors desk."Now, what early mischief has..." Eric muttered, scrolling through.

Would you like to join Saoirse and I for breakfast?


Eric looked at his watch, "Darn." Eric, grabbed his coat, which had been laying precariously. No time. No visible blood. late. What DID I do last night? He slam the door as he rushed out.

Lucky I'm not the headmaster or anything, I might be in serious trou... darn. Eric would have quickend his pace but the kids could sort themselves out he guessed and he wouldn't be teaching in any serious capacity today anyway. Meet & greet day. Gliding around a corner Eric notices a wavy haired boy standing front of a woman, Ariana. Eric's pulse skipped, surprised by the encounter.

Code red! Code red! Old teacher approaching! Despite his best efforts to telepathically signal a man he recognized as the local Headman, Professor Caydon, that he was in the middle of an introduction, it was no use. Dude simply could not take a hint. Or maybe Aiden didn't have telepathic powers. Whatever the case, he made sure not to reveal how disappointed he was at missing a golden opportunity - though he was genuinely surprised to learn that she was a professor. She was what, twenty-two? How did she get a teaching degree that young?

Aiden rubbed the back of his head sheepishly. "Maybe next time. Unless you still want to come with? It could always be the thr-" He paused and glanced at the little girl not far away. "The four of us. More the merrier, right?" Sure, why not? He liked kids. And he really was hungry. Flashing another charming smile he turned to follow the Headman toward what he assumed was the cafeteria, judging by all the noise he somehow had not heard like a minute ago. Probably too distracted trying not to seem like he was hitting on Professor McQuillen.

"So Aiden. I heard it's your treat."

The sentence snapped Aiden out of his musings. He really had to stop getting his head lost in the clouds. The teenager nodded, shrugging a bit. He could afford it. "Actually, do we pay for these? Or are they complimentary?" He shook his head. "I'll find some way this is on me, just you wait. I- Hey, is that the breakfast table?" His thoughts were stolen away entirely by the sight of a table loaded from one end to the distant other with all kinds of breakfast foods, ranging from local food to foreign. His mouth watered and his stomach grumbled, and he only then realized that he was really, really hungry. Granted, he ate like an hour ago, but then he ran a half-hour run in twelve seconds and that built up an appetite. "I'll just be a minute."

After dropping his bag off at a nearby empty table, thereby marking it as no longer empty, Aiden grabbed a tray from a nearby pile and began stacking everything within arm's reach. "Mmm, I could really go for some waffles right now. Hey, are those blueberry? Oh! Pancakes! Woah, check out all that toast. Think I'll get a few different spreads. Isn't that the Russian stuff? Always wanted to try that. And some of those. And that. And those! Definitely those. Hey, check this out..." As he went on he started speeding up, both his arms and his voice, until the former were a blur of motion and the latter a buzz of chatter that no human ear could pick more than a few words out of. Sometimes he filled up the tray and had to drop it off at his table and go back for another just to hold all the food he grabbed.

By the time Hurricane Aiden had passed the full length of the table there were six trays at theirs loaded down with every imaginable breakfast from bacon to spring rolls to apples to cereal bowls. Most impressively he had managed to stuff them all from end to end and move them at super speed to his table without dropping or spilling anything. It was a speedster thing. Rubbing his hands together and grinning at the prospect of so much grub, Aiden turned to the others and asked "So, what're you guys having?"

Jessie felt Elsie try to wake her, but not being much of a morning person it took her another 2 hours to get up. She saw it was 7:00 already so she got out from under her mint green blanket and, in her lavender flannel pajamas, walked over to her own wardrobe , which was already covered in various stickers depicting things from hummingbirds to video game controllers. After turning on the main light for the room she looked through her wardrobe for some nice clothes for the day. Hmm... Aha! Perfect. She pulled out a short dress she wore more as a t-shirt that was made of fabric, but looked like paper as it was filled with Alice in Wonderland segments that were barely readable. Then she pulled on a pair of diamond patterned stockings and put a some beige shorts over those. She yawned, and as she tied the laces of her sand shoes she asked a spider in the corner of the room where Elsie had gone. The metal girl went to the food castle to meet the shield boy. Jessie grinned as she remembered the animals at the academy's quaint behavior towards humans, as they often saw their super powers and named them by that. So Elsie was metal girl because her power was technomancy. She also recalled that the smaller animals called the cafeteria the food castle. She giggled, glad to be back at Maldoy Academy. "Alright. Thanks Herbie. Um, you remember to steer clear of the people I told you about last year okay?" She smiled as the little huntsman spider nodded, and she picked up her satchel with her things in it and walked down to the cafeteria, checking the time on her iPhone as she left the room. 7:05. I'm in good time. That's good.

Jessie pondered as she walked down the hallway, hearing the sounds of other students waking up to get to breakfast. She didn't pay much attention to the sounds though, too busy thinking about the upcoming year for her at the academy. Maybe I should try to make some proper friends this year, rather than just be acquaintances with people. I should also really try and get ahead in my studies. Maybe practice my pranking and mischievous skills too. But only after I'm sure who's who this year. Don't get ahead of yourself Jessie, only get ahead in studies, remember? She sighed, and saw a new face talking to Ms. McQuillen. She snickered slightly as she heard him remark about his looks. She quickly hurried down to the cafeteria before he heard or saw the one responsible for the snicker. She was about to turn into the cafeteria when a small sparrow hopped up to her, and chirped loudly.

I hurt my wing! Jessie sighed. "How is it you always manage to hurt yourself? I can't always be here to help you you know." The little bird shrugged, then winced and chirped sharply, her wing hurting. Jessie sat down against the wall, lifted the bird onto her lap, and closed her eyes. She breathed deeply and her conscience went into the little bird. Jessie put the bird's own conscience into a corner of its mind. She identified the broken bone and got out of the sparrow’s mind. She pulled out a hanky from her bag and wrapped it around the bird’s wing. “Okay, once I’ve finished my breakfast I’ll take you to the healing lady alright? But you really gotta stop breaking stuff.” She looked down at the little bird, making sure it understood. It nodded, and she lifted it onto her shoulder. I hope Ms. Winters will help. Even though this bird can be a total twit, I don't want her to be hurt.

She entered the cafeteria, and looked around to see that not many students were up. She got a tray and walked down the serving area. There was a wide arrangement of foods. She saw the bird open its beak out of the corner of her eye and spoke before it could. “No, we’re not getting the sesame bun.” She closed her beak. Jessie decided to go for pancakes with maple syrup, a nectarine and a chai latte. She looked around, and was about to take a seat, possibly next to Gabriel, when a blue blur flashed past her. She took a step back and looked at the cause of the blur. It was the new kid, and he had a tray full of food. She tutted and put down her own tray on his table as she sat down in front of him. “You know, if you want to make friends in this school you gotta be careful what you do and who you do it to.” She smiled and pretended to look down at her phone under the table. She closed her eyes and entered a small squirrel, and scurried over to the new boy and jumped on to his shoulder, then his head. Happy with his reaction, she returned the squirrel to its tree, but not before leaving an acorn on his shoulder. When she returned to her body, Jessie tried to hold in her laughter from seeing the new kid’s reaction. She looked up, and smiled. “My name’s Jessie Garlow, on the so called evil list. Pleased to make your acquaintance.” She smiled and plucked a spring roll from his tray before munching down on it. “Mmm, this is new. So are you actually. What’s your name?” She raised an eyebrow, continuing to eat the spring roll.

Just as Aiden was sitting down to enjoy a nice, big breakfast, he was mildly surprised to find a hot girl was sitting down next to him. He knew he was handsome, but he just got here! Normally it took a bit longer before girls started approaching him. “You know," she said, "if you want to make friends in this school you gotta be careful what you do and who you do it to.”

After a moment's thought Aiden realized he'd probably just rushed by her, in such a hurry to start eating that he hadn't even noticed. He smiled at her apologetically. He was usually smiling in one form or another, it was kind of a default expression for him. "Oh, did I-? Man, I'm so sorry. Totally forgot to look where I was going. The super-speed thing kind of runs away with me sometimes." He paused. "Did I just make that pun? Ugh, painful. Now I'm sorry twice over. I swear I'm better than this when I'm less hungry."

It was at this moment that he realized she might not have been paying full attention to him. In fact she looked like she was focusing on something under the table - her cellphone maybe? But just as Aiden was about to lean back and check, a squirrel ran through a nearby window, skipped across the table (somehow navigating several trays laden with delicious food without once taking a bite of anything) ran up his arm and hopped up off his shoulder to come to a stop right atop his head, looking down at his face as if to say And what do you say to that, hm? Aiden knew exactly what to say to that: "Please don't poop on me." Spoken blankly, with no hint of either fear or challenge.

The squirrel seemed to consider this an acceptable response, for it hopped down again, dropped an acorn on his shoulder and scurried off back from whence it came, once again deftly dodging past every plate and bowl on every tray. "Wow," Aiden remarked, "that was random. I guess animals love me as much as people do." He grinned, plucked the acorn, considered it for a few moments, then bit off the part below the cap and munched on it happily. No sense wasting such a nice gift. And if he milked it a bit for comedic, almost cartoonish effect, so much the better. He did love to make people laugh.

“My name’s Jessie Garlow, on the so called evil list. Pleased to make your acquaintance.” Once again Aiden was distracted from his own antics by the realization that the girl formerly known as 'the hot girl sitting next to him' and now as Jessie was saying words, and he should probably listen. Unfortunately she was also eating his food, so the first thing he ended up saying was a low, muttered whine of "Hey, my spring roll..." Apparently not hearing this, Jessie went on, “Mmm, this is new. So are you actually. What’s your name?”

Aiden shook his head and refocused on the subject at hand. "Did I never introduce myself?" He asked, only then realizing it. Then he facepalmed. "Manners. That's what I forgot to pack. There's always something, y'know?" He smiled again, reaching out to shake her hand. "I have the honor of being Aiden Dyre, and apparently good. Who knew?"

And of course Michael couldn't even be bothered to pay attention to a few simple rules. Jason was not in the least surprised. He seemed more interested in something he had seen through the window - a cursory scan of his surface thoughts (the ones he heard when he heard himself think) revealed it to be a girl in a nearby dormitory, clad only in a towel. Really? Typically Jason didn't care one way or the other where Michael's eyes wandered or what he thought about, but he did not like having to repeat himself. Nevertheless, he thought as he left the room, there isn't time enough to coach him right now. That could take as much as half an hour if he is as stubborn as I have observed him to be. I need to have my breakfast and get ready for my first class of the semester. I can not be late because of his wandering eyes. I will simply have to deal with this tonight.

However it seemed he was not destined to have such a simple morning. As he was making his way down the corridors toward the cafeteria his walk was interrupted by a loud exclamation by a nearby woman - deceptively young at a glance, but on closer examination perhaps in her early- or mid-twenties. Possibly around thirty with good healthcare. "Damn it, damn it, damn it. I'll never find the stupid bloody room." Jason resisted the urge to roll his eyes. She was hardly a student, unless she looked quite old for her age. A staff member should have better impulse control. Clearly she was new here; she ought to be making a better first impression. Nevertheless, a glance at his watch revealed Jason still had a good fifteen minutes before he needed to be in the cafeteria. He had time.

In a few quick strides he was standing just a handful of paces from the young woman desperately casting about for whatever room she was hoping to find. He cleared his throat to catch her attention. "Perhaps I may be of some assistance," Jason offered politely. "My name is Jason Blake and I am a student of this school. I have been for some time. As I know the layout of the campus, I could offer my services as a guide to your destination, if you wish."

"Manners. That's what I forgot to pack. There's always something, y'know?" He smiled, reaching out to shake her hand. "I have the honor of being Aiden Dyre, and apparently good. Who knew?"Jessie shook the new kid Aiden's hand. She was still snickering slightly from his reaction."Well, like I said, pleased to meet you Aiden." She grinned, and finished the spring roll. "So anyway, I guess your power's super speed huh. Well that's pretty cool!" She stuck her fork into her pancake, and cut a bit off, the maple syrup rolling off it's side. She took a bite, and made a little sound of joy. "Man I love pancakes. They must have changed the recipe though, they taste different." She swallowed and reverted her attention to Aiden. "Super speed's gonna come in handy around here. You'll always seem be at least a tiny bit late for any class, even if only by a minute." She gestured her fork at him and tilted her head in what she hoped made her look old and wise. Kind of.

"This is only my second year, but that's still a year, you know?" Jessie pulled out her iPhone in her Totoro case and checked the time. "Classes will start in a little while, I could be your guide around the school if you like? It's a big building and I still sometimes get lost, but a little help on who's who and what's what is still help right?" She smiled and looked around the cafeteria through her hands which she'd shaped into little binoculars, and craned her neck. She pulled a silly posh face, and put on a voice like an English nature channel presenter. "Here, we see the herd of Hormonius Teenagus, gathering around the communal food source. And look! The leader of the herd, named Proffessor Caydon, is arriving now. If asked, any of them would say they were thinking about the masquerade ball tonight." She chuckled at her own joke. My voices are getting better! Jessie put her hand binoculars "away" in her satchel. The bird on her shoulder tweeted something softly to her, and she frowned. "No." The bird then lowered it's head awkwardly and jumped down onto the floor to get some crumbs. Jessie looked back at Aiden and smirked. "Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you. I can talk to animals because my power's Animal Possession" She grinned as she saw it dawn on Aiden's face who exactly the squirrel was.

"So. What do you want to know first?"

Aiden listened, smiling and occasionally feeling the need to interject. "Late? Pssh. I don't know the meaning of it. I do almost everything fast." He paused for effect. "Almost." Innuendo? That would imply subtlety. Later on, he whispered "Crikey" in his best Crocodile Hunter voice as Jessie talked about the Hormonius Teenagus. He also took a moment while she was putting her equipment away to wave Professors Caydon and McQuillen over to the table, plus the as-yet-unnamed girl with them. They seemed a bit busy grabbing food through the throngs of teenagers around them.

"So," he surmised once she revealed her part in the squirrel thing, "basically you gave me that acorn? Thanks! I was hungry." He smiled broadly. Two of the six trays full of food that he had brought with him to the table were empty and he was already working his way through a third. He stopped suddenly with a pancake halfway up to his mouth. You could almost hear the gears in his head come to a halt as he realized something. "Wait. Did you say 'Masquerade?' We're having a masquerade? When? Where? Is it full costumes or suits and masks?" He was already imagining his own outfit. One of those long coats with a collar and a hood inside the collar, like that guy from Dishonored... Whatshisface with the mask. Only he'd wear a different mask. Just because he liked the coat didn't mean he was going to copy.

"Is there a town nearby? Do they have a store you can buy costumes? Or really cool clothes? Bet I could be there and back between classes. Want me to pick you up something? Damn, going too fast. One sec." He took a deep breath, realizing he'd gotten all excited again. Sometimes that caused him to pick up speed. A lot. Usually it happened while he was running, but now and again he'd hear about something or see something that was just too cool and his inner child took to it like a candy store. After a few moments he released the air in his lungs, now back to normal, and smiled apologetically before munching on his pancake to give her some time to reply.

Ariana looked at her sleek black IPhone before looking at a couple of other messages by students who were wanting to become professors asking if they could sit in on her class. Which she never said no to and most of the student knew that. Which is why they came to her. s soon as she caught sight of who she believed was a student. She never has seen him before, coming to the conclusion that he must have been a new student. She knew most, if not all the students at least by last name if not first. She watched from the corner of her eye as he crossed over towards her quicker than anyone she has really seen. “Super speed.” Once he cleared his throat she looked up at him with a smile. “Hey. 'Scuse me.” She looked at him before hearing him speak again. “Beautiful, I know,” She raised an eyebrow before chuckling a bit. She have had students flirt with her before and to be frank, she didn't think it was too bad. She wasn't one to flirt with underage boys or ever boys younger than her. She knew who she had feelings and those feelings weren't going to go away over a student. “The feeling's mutual, believe me. I'm Aiden Dyre, just got here this morning, and I am totally lost.” She shook his extended hand and spoke, “Pleasure.” before crossing them over her chest and continued to listen to him. “I was hoping maybe you could show me around a bit?” She looked at the time on her phone, seeing if she would have enough time to show him around, eat, and get everything ready for her classes. “Maybe after we grab some breakfast?” She cleared her throat about to speak before noticing Eric not far from where Aiden and her were. And once he walked over and introduced her to Aiden she smiled and looked Eric as he spoke before turning her attention back to Aiden. “Maybe next time. Unless you still want to come with? It could always be the thr-The four of us. More the merrier, right?” She chuckled as her daughter pranced over to her mother's side, holding on to her hand.

As the group walked to the cafeteria, she watched as Aiden grabbed pretty much everything and she looked at her daughter who was trying to slip away to go and go sit with her friends. Ariana chuckled a bit before letting go of the young girl's hand as she scurried to her small group of friends who were easily the youngest of the academy which was probably why her daughter had became friends with them so quickly. She walked in line with her her heels hitting the floor as she noticed Anastacia and Cheveyo walk in. They were easily one of the couples that everyone knew at the school and their chemistry on stage was amazing whether they were singing or acting, they just had a sort of spark that she always used for inspiration in her classes when they were covering how to make chemistry with another person even if they hated that one person. She watched the couple kiss before splitting for the time being. She turned around and began to grab a bagel and some fruit before walking towards the table were she saw both Aiden and Jessie sitting at. “Wait. Did you say 'Masquerade?' We're having a masquerade? When? Where? Is it full costumes or suits and masks?” She decided to answer seeing that Gabe kind of made her or at least knew how to make her feel like she had to. “The masquerade is actually coming up this Sunday. But, it's not like costume masquerade, at least not this time. That's more for Halloween but, you do get to wear masks and dress up and just have fun to bring in the new school year.” She said before before clearing her throat and looking at the two kids. “And you know, they're always looking for people to help out.” She said with a raised eyebrow and a smirk.

Aiden turned, delighted to find that Professor McQuillen had joined them, bringing with her only a single bagel. Well, easy to see how she maintained such a trim figure, at least. Almost as importantly, she brought answers regarding the masquerade. “The masquerade is actually coming up this Sunday. But, it's not like costume masquerade, at least not this time. That's more for Halloween but, you do get to wear masks and dress up and just have fun to bring in the new school year.” Aiden listened with rapt attention that was in no way diminished by the three bowls of assorted cereals he wolfed down while she spoke. How he moved the spoon at that speed without spilling even a drop was a question that would befuddle scientists for years... but then again so were most things he did.

After the explanation she gave both him and Jessie pointed looks and added that they were always looking for people to help out, at which Aiden wrapped one arm around Jessie, pulling her to his side, and raised the other triumphantly. "We volunteer!" He proclaimed happily. It'd be great! He'd get to help prepare the masquerade (half of which he could do in like a minute) meet some of the other students, earn points with Professor Hottest-Teacher-Ever, and as a bonus there would probably be other hot girls helping out too. It was a win-win-win-win deal!

Of course at that moment he realized he still had Jessie pressed shoulder-to-shoulder with him and promptly released her, grinning sheepishly. "Uh, what I meant to say was... Oh, come on, it'll be fun!" He began adding expressive arm gestures with every sentence, like people did when acting. That usually made girls laugh enough that they forgave whatever he just did. Plus he was pretty good at it - theater was his favorite class and he always got good marks at it. "We can meet people and talk while we're at it. Plus with our powers we can get our shares done in no time. C'mon, I bet you always wanted to try that Disney trick where you get a bunch of woodland animals to do stuff for you. I'll even sing along!"

He hopped up and stood on the bench, planting one foot on the table in between trays, then began to sing in a deep, baritone voice. "For what is a man, what has he got? If not himself, then he has naught!" Usually someone pulled him down before he could finish a song, even when he started so close to the end, but the point of it all was this: He got away with stuff like that because he was funny and people liked it. Well, that, and also when he started singing in the middle of a cafeteria all eyes were inevitably drawn to him. And the center of attention? Exactly where he belonged.

My Way-Frank Sinatra

"We volunteer!" Jessie groaned as Aiden grabbed her hand and raised it to the roof, pulling her to his shoulder as he volunteered them both to help out. She blushed as he talked loudly and everyone started to stare. "Aiden! What are you doing!?" She hissed through her teeth, remembering why she so often hated over confident people. Jessie was staring at him, trying to get him to sit down but he wouldn't. "We can meet people and talk while we're at it. Plus with our powers we can get our shares done in no time. C'mon, I bet you always wanted to try that Disney trick where you get a bunch of woodland animals to do stuff for you. I'll even sing along!" She groaned as he jumped onto the table, somehow managing not to stand in their breakfast. He then started singing My Way and now everyone really was staring.

She groaned, and prevented herself from face planting into the pancakes, but at least she wouldn't stick out as much as Aiden was right now. She sighed as she felt obliged to answer. "Been there done that, and who said I would volunteer? I am going to, but you should ask first." She looked at Ariana and awkwardly smiled apologetically, before looking up at Aiden again. She saw that he wouldn't get down until she sang the next lyrics. She sighed, took a deep breath, and sang out in a crystal clear voice. "To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels. The record shows I took the blows and did it my way! Yes, it was my way" Her voice was clear, and she thought it wasn't very good, but it really was quite stunning. She held the last note for a bar and let it go, falling silent. The whole cafeteria had been silent as Aiden sang, and because she was the only one making noise, it was just her and Aiden singing, and she blushed even more.

"You done now Aiden?Now get down!" She hissed the last sentence quietly, not wanting to draw any more attention to herself. "Anyway, I'm organised for the Masquerade, you don't need to get me anything." Jessie grabbed his hand and yanked it ever so slightly. She just hoped Aiden didn't do something else to embarrass her.

Kids, Eric thought as he interjected a flaring conversation between Ariana and Aiden. Introducing himself was simple enough and Eric found himself invited to breakfast a second time. "So Aiden. I heard it's your treat." Eric smirked patting an arm around him and leading him on. Saved you, Eric briefly glanced back at Ariana.

Reaching the cafeteria Aiden took a moment to absorb the surroundings, "Actually, do we pay for these? Or are they complimentary?" He asked looking confused. In all earnest the meals were free, a courtesy of residence but Eric could tell Aiden hadn't clocked it until he'd scanned the room for a cash register. "I'll find some way this is on me, just you wait. I- Hey, is that the breakfast table?" The boy lost sight of his charming plans, "I'll just be a minute," and like a flash he was gone.

Taking a momentary respite Eric exited the main hall into the kitchen, I honestly can't remember when I last ventured in here at this hour. Eric thought having often visited during the less social hours. He saw many kitchen staff, most of whom paid him no heed and just carried on with business. One grossly large woman however stopped and glared from over the other side of the room, making her way towards Eric as he indulged himself with a tangerine. "Picky things these," he gestured to the fruit, "It's been...?"
"For yeahs! Four yeahs an' yoo de nerve tu descend unto MY kitchen all "seen yoo yesteday." uhuh no Caydon professor sir." The chef angrily bellowed pushing at Eric.
"Is this about those letters piled in my in-tray?" Eric questioned whilst failing to hold ground. His question seemed to rile the chef more and he found himself on the other side of the double doors sooner than he'd anticipated. "So now is the wrong time to discuss that raise?" He retorted to the door and smirked, I hate paperwork.

He found a lot of commotion upon his reentry into the cafeteria, Aiden was singing and... ... Jessie? Eric wasn't expecting a display from her. The peel dropped to floor and Eric finally tasted a tangy slice, noticing Ariana had rejoined Aiden and Jessie. "Feet down Posy," Eric dismissively said pushing her feet off the table with an arm as he passed, "... At least socially," Eric muttered ambivalently and sticking another slice of orange in his mouth.

Observing the caf, Eric saw Anastacia and Damon talking, whilst Cheveyo contended himself with breakfast; Scarlett, Nicholas, Kenzie and Emilia sitting on lone tables; Gabriel and Nina both similarly alone at the cafeteria's back; Koen and Elsie talking; Aiden, Jessie and Ariana now settling down; And a window revealed Alexander sitting outside finishing his tray. A lot other students we're scurrying to and from but Eric thought he'd sussed the gist of the morning, Go forth kids, meet and greet.

Walking to the back of the hall Eric shuffled his orange free hand into his back pocket removing a note. Gabriel looked up as he approached, "You're right. I did owe you $20," Eric spoke relinquishing the note onto the table. "I forgot which game we had stakes on; or maybe I'm a deluded loser..." He shrugged, "You were holding back the first game weren't you? And I fell for it, like a sucker." Eric tsked at Gabe, noticing a concealed smile. "And you're meant to be the angel?" Shaking his head. Before Gabriel had a moment to swallow his food and deny such jovial slander Eric turned away, "You eat, you're beat." He chuckled, "Enjoy your winnings, for now."

Another slice entered Eric's mouth as he swept across the cafeteria to the front. Another of these, Eric picked up another orange beginning to pick at it's skin as he walked towards Ariana. Act cool. Smile. He told himself rubbing the back of his neck. Note to self: Figure out last night.

Aiden was surprised when Jessie joined in the singing. He‘d paused briefly at the end of the fourth line, glancing at her to see if she was going to pull him off the bench, and she seemed to take that as invitation to join in. He grinned broadly. This was going to be great! As she entered the final part of the song he joined in, loud and clear, “The record shows, I took the blows and did it my way!” There was a bit of a pause for things to wind down. Then they finished in voices quieter than before but still clearly audible over the silent cafeteria, “Yes, it was my way.”

The song finished, he took Jessie’s hand and a deep bow. He figured she was doing the same, but he always closed his eyes when he bowed after a show. Looked more elegant that way. After the bow he glanced at Jessie, smiling a handsome smile, and said “You have an amazing singing voice, y’know that?” Or he tried to. Only she interrupted him about halfway through, hissing at him to get down off the table, for all the world as if she hadn’t joined right up with him.

Shrugging, he sat back down and munched happily on a waffle as she went on to explain how she was ready for the masquerade (Already? He thought. On the first day? They must do this every year.) ”Either way,” he remarked, ”I’m gonna need to find a mask by the end of the week at least. Maybe a nice coat. Ah, bet I’ll just find some town not too far away and zip across. Get it all done in an afternoon, y’know?”

He stretched out comfortably, polishing off the last of his fourth tray of food (he ate whenever he wasn't talking or performing) then glanced over at Professor McQuillen. “So what do you teach exactly? Not sure I heard.” And it would be good to know ahead of time which class he should really prepare for. Unless there were other hot teachers? That hadn’t occurred to him. This could turn out to be a very interesting school.

Jason Martin Blake

The woman in the hallway looked up briefly – not up at Jason, but up at the ceiling, muttering something. He made a point of listening through her ears and caught the tail end of it. Something about ‘humiliation.’ As he approached, though, she turned her gaze on him directly and spoke loud and clear. ”I do apologize for the scene,” she said, “I could blame it on caffeine, or lack of sleep, nightmares… but I’ll be honest. I am new and I’m lost and your offer could not have come at a better time.” This was accompanied by a smile he could only describe as ‘impish.’ He noted too that she had an English accent – somewhere northerly if he had to guess. “Right, anyway. I’m the new health teacher…nurse. Well, two for one combo deal, you lucky, lucky people. Sally Winters, and you are?”

Ms. Winters seemed eager to bury the subject of her outburst. Jason could certainly understand that - it was hardly becoming of a teacher, even a new one. Still, as she apologized he saw no sense in holding it against her. Besides, she would be teaching Health here for some time. They shouldn't get off on the wrong foot. ”My name is Jason Martin Blake,” he said, bowing his head slightly as he introduced himself. “I am a student of seven years at this school, studying to assist in teaching the sciences.” He had in fact been here when at least one of the current teachers was still a first-year student. Not that he had been in any position to take over the subject after his fourth year, being only sixteen at the time.

“If you would follow me,” he continued, “the office of the nurse is not far from here. From there the Health classroom is only a short walk further. As the breakfast period has only recently begun I would be happy to lead you to both.” After all these years he could have navigated the corridors of the school blindfolded, even without the sight of others guiding him. He could easily lead her there and still have time for a quick breakfast.

Kaelana Mãe Natureza

“Colour me your color, baby. Colour me your car. Colour me your colour, darling. I know who you are
Come up off your colour chart. I know where you're comin' from. Call me! On the liiine. Call me, call me any, anytime!
Call me! My looove. You can call me any day or night. Call me. Cover me with kisses, baby. Cover me with love. Roll me in designer sheets. I'll never get enough. Emotions come, I don't know why. Cover up love's alibi....”


A powerful female voice could be heard coming from behind the hanging vines and branches of the unusually large willow tree causing new students to stop and look as the vines parted to reveal a young, barefooted woman twirling out with small and colorful flowers popping up from under her feet as she walked towards the school, her knee-length hair decorated with small white daisies swishing. The sun seemed to shine brighter as the happy Amazon danced her way into the academy, apple in hand.

She paused briefly to visit the dormitory areas, banging loudly on the doors of Arturo and Divinia Castiglione, caring little whether she disturbed Arty's roommate or not. She adjusted her hair before continuing on, taking a bite from her apple, enjoying the beautiful morning as she hummed. She came to a sharp halt, causing a boy walking behind her to slam into her. “What the fuck?! Could you give a guy some warning next time? Bitch.” He hissed as he stood back up, having gathered his books. “You should really see the nurse about that situation on your face.” The thickly accented voice of Kaelana purred as she turned around with an expression that a girl gives her friend when a makeover goes awry. “What thing?” She almost laughed because he fell for the sitcom line. Almost. But the tall girl was too busy swinging her heavy fist into his face.

She smirked as he dropped his books and ran for the nurse's office, spewing more curses to her name. Shaking her head, she tuned her ears to the sound that had stopped her in the first place, a grin from ear to ear taking place on her face as she sprinted towards the noise.

Kaelana's smile was bright as she entered the cafeteria, throwing her arms out and belting out the rest of the song she had been singing earlier. “Call me! On the liiine. Call me, call me any, anytime. Call me! Oh my looove. When you're ready, we can share the wine. Call me! Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo, he speaks the languages of love. Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo, amore, chiamami, chiamami. Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo, appelle-moi mon cherie, appelle-moi. Anytime, anyplace, anywhere, any way!! Anytime, anyplace, anywhere, any day-ay!! Call me! My looove. Call me, call me any, anytime. Call me! For a riiide. Call me, call me for some overtime. Call me! My looove. Call me, call me in a sweet design. Call me! Call me for your lover's lover's alibi. Call me! On the liiine. Call me, call me any, anytime. Call me. Oh, call me, oo-hoo-hah. Call me my love. Call me, call me any, anytiiiiiiiiime.”

She grinned as she made her way over to Aiden and Jessie, the tattooed female blowing Aiden a kiss. “You know the only way I'll stop stealing your show is if you tryout for the Titans.” She cast a sideways glance to see Anastacia with her "older brother" Cheveyo. They looked similar in a few respects, his family adored her, and they had been friends since his first day at Maldoy so she often looked to him as the big brother she never had. She gave them a wave before turning her attention back to Aiden and Jessie. “So I'm going to see you both at tryouts, right?”



OOC: Will have the other three up ASAP.

Jessie exhaled in relief when Aiden managed to sit down again. She ate her food, and sucked the remainder of the nectarine off the stone, and started to drink her chai latte. She half listened to Aiden's plans, and just sat quietly. She finished her breakfast then looked towards Aiden, and answered quietly. "Well that sound great Aiden. You should join the Acapella group or tryout for one of the art groups if you like singing that much." She smiled slightly then looked on her phone, and saw that classes would start in a little while. "Oh yeah, never gave you that schedule. Here's the first year schedule." She handed Aiden a slip of paper with the first year schedule. "You've got English first up. I'm in my second year so I've got battle instead." She explained, pointing out the classes.

She sighed and rose from the table, picking up the little sparrow from the floor with the injured wing. "Well, I've got to go now. see you later I suppose..." She then left the cafeteria very hurriedly, her word print dress swaying nicely with her steps. Better find the new school nurse... She walked up the steps towards the nurse's room, moving quickly and then saw what seemed to be a new teacher and Jason. "Oh. Hey Jason." She looked him up and down before turning to the new teacher. "Hi. I'm Jessie Garlow. Evil apparently. Who exactly are you?" She reached out her hand after putting the sparrow on her shoulder. She smiled and blew a strand of hair off her face, eagerly awaiting to find out who this new teacher was.

OOC: Wrote this just as Little fox was posting :P

Divinia Castiglione

| Outfit |





“I'm awake, Lana! See you at breakfast!”

Divinia slid a pressed rose between the pages of her slightly aged book, marking her place as she offered a sigh before sliding out her phone and tapping the letters on the screen. Wén Xīn Diāo Lóng is quite an amazing read; I can't believe I've only just found out about it. Thanks again for getting me an untranslated copy. She sent her text off to the Headmaster and her future employer before smoothing out her skirt and standing to confront her vanity. She puckered her lips to apply ruby red lipstick, topping it off with a light layer of peach scented gloss.

She grabbed her binder and slipped the book inside, grabbing her leather journal and gently placing it inside her purse before heading out. She had been up for the past few hours studying theology in deeper thought than usual, taking heavy notes. She closed and locked the double doors behind her; Divinia didn't exercise her true powers often, but after deciding to remain at Maldoy and become the first Professor of Philosophy, she decided that she no longer wanted a roommate and had created her own reality within her room. Her room was her own little world that catered to her every desire and defied the laws of physics.

She shouldered her purse and was on her way, contemplating what she would have for breakfast when she paused and heard the last few notes of "Call Me" by Blondie. She smiled contently and shook her head as she made her way through the halls and down the steps towards the academy cafeteria; Apparently Kaelana was trying to wake the entire school. Divinia was fond of the rambunctious Amazon, trying her best to be alongside Cheveyo as the voice of reason when Kaelana and Arturo were up to their shenanigans. But she couldn't deny that it was often fun and refreshing to walk on the wild side with them every now and again.

She entered the cafeteria and headed right for the line where she grabbed a tray and served herself with a bowl of blueberry oatmeal, an orange, a carton of soy milk, and a banana nut muffin. Content with her choices, she was off to the table in the center of the cafeteria, the usual spot for Titans. She looked around at all those present, a tad surprised not to see her friend and intellectual equal, Jason Blake. He was usually among the first to breakfast. Shrugging, she grabbed her muffin and bit into it with her gaze curiously fixed on a girl sitting in a window alone.

Donovan MatthewsDonovan shot out of bed as his alarm went off for the third time. ”Kae’s gonna kill me.” He repeated as he got dressed. He split on his vintage spider man tee, his slightly baggy skinny jeans - an oxymoron really but did he care? Nope.-, A red plaid shirt top his tee, his high top converses and his favorite green beanie. He very much liked the way he looked in hats. Some people had shoes, he had hats. He grabbed his backpack up quickly. He had a lot of studying to do but he’ll cram all that in later, the last thing he wanted to do was piss of Kae, she was hot and her temperament was just as fiery. Just as he was about to run out the door, his wrist watch alarm went off. ”Damn it all to hell.” He groaned and went back into his room. He set down his backpack, opened it and pulled out a black case. He unzipped it and pulled out the glucose meter.He pricked his finger, without so much as a breath, and pressed the meter to his bleeding finger. Once the blood was being read, He sucked the small hole in his finger and waited. After a moment. He got his results as sighed. 13.7. Not good. He put the meter away and grabbed the insulin pen. He rolled up his pant leg and stuck the needle into his thigh and pressed the plunger. He waited a moment, shook his leg to get the blood flowing and then proceeded to pack up his stuff and slung his backpack over his shoulder making a beeline toward the Titan of Tunes. I ran down the seemingly endless corridors and heard Kae’s powerful voice. He stopped, slid and stumbling into a wall before straightening himself and walking in casually, just as she finished with talking with a few others. ”What up!” He said and smiled at the group. ”What I miss?”

#, as written by Vix
Cheveyo Qaeltaqa & Philanie Ferreira





Cheveyo felt his girlfriend's grip tightened as they entered the cafeteria and he was positive that it was because of the girls around them trying to flirt with him. He usually didn't even pay them any mind because his Ana just gave him tunnel vision. He regarded the multitude of females with a polite smile and nod before kissing his girlfriend lightly. “Alright baby. I'll meet you at the table.” He turned to the large table of food where there was a line and found himself standing beside three of himself. Cheveyo was a really nice guy and was known among the Titans as such; The three Native Americans that were one grabbed trays and began to load up on breakfast for several others. Cheveyo had long since learned that having his clones eat and rejoin him would give him the world's absolute worst upset stomach.

Trays loaded high, they made their way to the center table, setting them in the center before becoming one again. “Hey, I'll be back in a sec. Dig in.” Cheveyo had become distracted at the sight of one lone student sitting in a window, recognizing her as Ana's new roommate. He strode across the cafeteria, stopping just in front of Nina.

Philanie looked up as she heard Cheveyo clear his throat. “Can I help you...?” She recognized him as the guy that was sleeping with her roommate. Her blue eyes took in his formal attire and her brows rose ever so slightly. He smiled politely and offered his hand. “Actually, I wanted to apologize for not formally introducing myself. I'm Cheveyo Qaeltaqa; Future Battle Professor. Everyone calls me Atreyu or Chevy. Pick your poison. I wanted to invite you to have breakfast with myself and some of my friends.” Philanie lifted a brow a grabbed her tray before standing alongside him. She shrugged before heading towards the table where she took a seat, shortly followed by Chevy. “Seems like I've been personally invited to the cool kids' table.”

She smiled up as she wrapped her arms around her boyfriend or at least one of them. Anastacia always tried her best not to get the real Cheveyo mixed up with a fake one Even if they were the same person, it made her feel as if she was cheating on him. Something she never wanted to do. She couldn't do that to her boyfriend. She lightly kissed him before sitting down in the couple's regular seats, setting down their two coffees. Her being stained with her pink lipstick while Chev's was perfectly fine. One Cheveyo started speaking to the table, she looked up at him with her big eyes. “Hey, I'll be back in a sec. Dig in.” She looked towards the direction he was looking, seeing a rather pretty girl with black hair. She then saw closely that it was her roommate and the girl Damon had told her to talk to as soon as possible. But, that was her. She didn't know why her boyfriend was going over to the girl. As he walked towards Nina. Annie released a sigh before setting her bag into his seat just so no one would take it. Even though most people knew who always sat next to her, even the newer people had seen Cheveyo and Ana around, being the cute couple they were.

They didn't get voted cutest couple for nothing. She looked towards Arty and his sister, Divinia as she tried to distract herself from being that over paranoid girlfriend she was feeling like. “So, let me guess. Kaelana woke you both up.” She said with a smile on her face, trying to mask the frown she had just a couple of seconds ago. Not long after Cheveyo had returned with Nina. She removed her bag from his seat before leaning her head on his shoulder with the genuine smile returning to her face. She looked at Nina before clearing her throat. “Hi Nina, I know that you're new here but my,” She glared over at Damon who was too busy talking to his little followers to notice her. “Friend, Damon wants to talk to you whenever you get the chance.” She and Damon weren't friends, whatsoever but she didn't know what else to call him; her ex, her puppetmaster? Not with Cheveyo next to her, she didn't need him to know that he still was manipulating the poor girl after two years. She looked at the time on her new phone before putting the phone back on the table and looking towards her Chevy. “We should get going soon, Chevy.”

"We volunteer!" She smiled toward Aiden before looking at Jessie, who didn't seem just as enthusiastic as the new kid was. "Uh, what I meant to say was... Oh, come on, it'll be fun!" She clapped softly as she spoke. “Wonderful. And with you there Aiden, we should finish in no time!” She added before looking around for Eric. So, in other words she zoned out of the conversation. "We can meet people and talk while we're at it. Plus with our powers we can get our shares done in no time. C'mon, I bet you always wanted to try that Disney trick where you get a bunch of woodland animals to do stuff for you. I'll even sing along!" She smirked as she continued looking around the dining hall before seeing him talking to another one of their friend and teacher, Gabriel. But, she quickly returned her hazel eyes back to Aiden before Eric had the chance to her staring. The last thing she needed was to be caught by her boss for gazing at him of all people. She looked back at Aiden and Jessie as she started to hear singing, and when she turned to see who it was. She saw that it was Aiden. "For what is a man, what has he got? If not himself, then he has naught!"

Then turned towards Jessie as the red head gave her opinion on volunteering "Been there done that, and who said I would volunteer? I am going to, but you should ask first." Ariana raised an eyebrow before speaking, “Thanks Jess.”
The woman said with sarcasm before seeing Jessie send an apologetic smile towards the Irish woman. Before she started singing as well. "To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels. The record shows I took the blows and did it my way! Yes, it was my way" They sounded good. She wouldn't go as far as saying that they were as good as some of the members of the acapella group that Ariana was the coach of but, with help they could definitely become great. Jessie hissed for Aiden to stop, clearly being embarrassed but at this school nothing really was unusual. "Anyway, I'm organised for the Masquerade, you don't need to get me anything." She chuckled before seeing Eric walk towards the table. She looked towards him smiling as he sat down next to her. ”I’m gonna need to find a mask by the end of the week at least. Maybe a nice coat. Ah, bet I’ll just find some town not too far away and zip across. Get it all done in an afternoon, y’know?” She was snapped back to reality as she heard Aiden. “You can talk to Anastacia over there. She the one with the golden hair,” She said as she pointed towards the table where the small Italian girl was sitting with Cheveyo right next to her with most of the other acapella members sitting around the table as well. “Her and her brother have tons of masks. It would save you some time and money.”

“So what do you teach exactly? Not sure I heard.” Aiden asked her. She had no problem saying what she taught, unlike most teachers who taught the classes that kids mostly dislike. Ariana taught them how to be creative and how to act. Not really the most difficult thing in the world. “I teach theater arts. You know, singing dancing, acting... The fun things people like doing in school not like history and all that boring stuff.” She said as she smirked towards Eric. After that Kaelana started singing before walking over to Aiden and putting her really tan arms around Aiden's shoulder. “You know the only way I'll stop stealing your show is if you tryout for the Titans. So I'm going to see you both at tryouts, right?” Ariana shook her head with a smirk on her face as she took a sip of her coffee. "Well that sound great Aiden. You should join the Acapella group or tryout for one of the art groups if you like singing that much. Oh yeah, never gave you that schedule. Here's the first year schedule." The woman looked at the yellow paper as it was handed to Aiden who had one of the "boring" classes that Ariana had said. "You've got English first up. I'm in my second year so I've got battle instead,"

Ariana looked at the time herself before Jessie excused herself and walked towards the new nurse. She turned her attention towards Aiden with a small smirk, “You should be heading to class as well, Mr. Dyre.” She turned her glare over to the man next to her “As should you, Professor Caydon.”

Aiden was more than pleased to hear that his new favorite teacher happened to teach his favorite class. He grinned broadly, already looking forward to the opportunity to spend some quality time with the beautiful professor. "No way, like my best class! We should- uh..." He noticed then that Ms. Mcquilen was once again not looking at him, but at the head bossman nearby. Seriously? How was he that distracting that she couldn't keep her eyes off him? Sure, he was handsome enough, but come on. She was like a schoolgirl with a crush. Normally girls looked at him like that.

But Aiden was himself distracted soon after by the arrival of a voice he knew well from last summer, down at the bars of Miami beach where he technically wasn't allowed to be in the first place. Kaelana Mãe Natureza came striding down the cafeteria, singing Call Me by Blondie at the top of her voice (and doing a lovely job of it) as she made her way toward them. Just as she finished her song she even blew Aiden a kiss. He caught it on two fingers and planted a kiss of his own on them. Just like he remembered her. She spoke up right after. “You know the only way I'll stop stealing your show is if you tryout for the Titans. So I'm going to see you both at tryouts, right?” she said, looking between him and Jessie. "So I'm going to see you both at tryouts, right?"

Aiden gave her a thumbs-up. "Just name the when and where, you know I'll be there." He paused, a rare frown creasing his features. "Eh, not my best work. I'll come up with something better for tryouts." And then it vanished like clouds passing the sun, leaving his customary smile to once again light up the room.

Unfortunately Jessie took that moment to announce her intent to do no such thing, despite her wonderful singing voice. "Well that sound great Aiden. You should join the Acapella group or tryout for one of the art groups if you like singing that much. Oh yeah, never gave you that schedule. Here's the first year schedule." She produced from somewhere in a pocket of hers a slip of yellow paper which Aiden accepted curiously, reading through it to see what the day had in store for him. "You've got English first up. I'm in my second year so I've got battle instead."

"Alright," he muttered to himself, "English, not so bad. I can do English- Wait, there's a Battle class?" He looked up to find that Jessie was leaving. "Wait, what's this about a Battle class? Do I have to hit things? I'm a lover, not a fighter."

But nobody seemed in the mood to tell him as at that point Ariana spoke up again, apparently over her brief bout of Headman-related daydreams. "You should be heading to class as well, Mr. Dyre," she told him before glaring at her boss. "As should you, Professor Caydon." Wait, so the guy in charge also taught a class? Huh. Must have a teacher shortage.

As others around the cafeteria finished up, Aiden inhaled the last few morsels on his several trays of food, stopped to check he didn't have anything caught in his teeth and smiled at Kaelana, the only one still here. "I should probably mention that twenty minutes ago I was wandering around the halls completely lost and I never actually found a map. I could use a beautiful guide to show me around the school."

And of course even that hope had to be crushed. Aiden closed his eyes and slowly exhaled, just a bit annoyed. "Rain check, then, gorgeous," he said, rolling his eyes and smiling at Kaelana despite his exasperation. "We gotta catch up, I haven't seen you in like a month. Looking forward to a bit of quality time." He paused a moment for her to comeback to the obvious flirt, then carried on. "I can't wait to tryout for - you said Titans, right? Like that cartoon? Look me up after class and I'll be all over that."




After the goodbyes were all done, Aiden caught up with the Headman and the mob of first-years he was leading. They hadn't gotten so far he'd lost sight of them, so moving faster than those slowpokes was a piece of cake. He couldn't help but remark at the bossman "You know, Professor, at a certain point you're just being a dick." Rob him of a prime opportunity to spend time with a hot girl? Not cool. Do it on his first day at school? Definitely not cool. Do it twice? Now he's just a dick.

Once they got to the classroom Aiden zipped in to grab a seat next to the window, near the back of the classroom, before anyone else could get to it. It offered a great view of the grounds but was shaded from the sun by a large tree not far away. Much more slowly he got out his books and papers and crud like that, boredom already seeping in at the thought of the class ahead. He noticed the teacher had written something on the board in flowy, flowery handwriting that was kind of hard to make out... In the end he just shrugged and decided not to bother. Instead he began drawing dinosaurs - objectively he knew his drawing was awful, with the lines all wobbly and uneven and everything the wrong size, but dinosaurs. And he liked drawing. And dude, dinosaurs.

Hopefully someone would come by soon and relieve him of the boredom that was prompting this behavior in the first place. Ideally a hot, female someone, but anyone interesting and fun would be nice.
