    Leonardo "Leo" Silverstone
    Professor Grueshaw's classroom ---> Leo's dorm room
    Tome - Henbane


    "I‘m sure many of you are good judges of character,” agreed the Professor, “But you are still teenagers, not much trained in magic, so for the time being it would be safest to exercise as much caution as possible. It’s not that no one is trustworthy, it's that finding out who is trustworthy by trial and error may be a grave mistake. Many experienced witches are capable of disguising themselves as the sweet and innocent, and the familiar.”

    “As for me trusting the lot of you with these spell books, no magical education would be possible without such an exchange, but rest assured, I do have safeguards in place.”

    “Alright, let’s wrap this up,” announced the professor stuffing his book under one arm, “Homework, when you show up tomorrow, I want each of you to have selected one spell you’re going to try this week, okay?”

    Leo nodded, then looked to see what Henbane had to say.

    Oh boy! Tin Star is a great starting project! I bet you’ll want to get started right away!

    Tin Star - Make your very own lucky star! This light luck boosting talisman has little to no Pendulum Effect!

    You will need:
    A sheet of tin (you can use a flattened can as well, but it may not be as pretty)
    Metal snips
    Hammer and nail, or small drill
    Copper tape
    Solder
    Flux
    Paint brush
    Soldering Iron
    Chain or thread to hang your star from

    This is a fairly simple project. First take your metal snips and cut a star from the tin sheet. Make a hole to attach your chain or thread to later using the nail and hammer, or drill. You may pound designs into your star with metal tools is desired. Wrap the edges of your star in copper wire, paint flux onto the copper tape, and melt solder into the copper. Attach you chain or thread and your star is ready to go!
    Leo smiled. He didn't have all these things in his room, but It just so happened that he had shop class...this afternoon. Where he'd be able to get all the things necessary to make a Tin Star. "Perfect! Thank you!" he said as he took out his Cell Phone, and took a picture of the page with the camera so he wouldn't have to take the book out during class. Then he closed the book, tucked her under his arm, and made his way to his room. Smiling and saying good night to his friend Diego when he bumped into him along the way.

    ---

    Once Leo got to his room, he undressed and changed into his pajamas, which basically consisted of a pair of red boxers, and nothing else. He often forgets to close the window when he gets dressed, and his room just happened to be across from the girl's dorm, giving any female nearby who happened to have their window open a pretty good view. He didn't realize it was open until after he finished undressing. He went to draw the blinds, not that it mattered all that much now. He figured no one would be up anyway.

    Then he went to the shelf where he kept a collection of plushies he brought with him. He had the Teddy bear he's had since he was a kid that he slept with every night, as well as his collection of My Little Pony plushies. He didn't have the complete set yet, so far he only had Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Celestia. He was still missing Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle, Luna, the elusive Derpy Hooves, (that particular one was rare, he wasn't sure it even existed) as well as several other characters.

    He grabbed the bear, and said goodnight to the ponies. Before going to bed, he walked up to his nightstand, and opened up Henbane one last time. "Hey Henbane, The Professor asked us to pick a Spell to try this week. Will this Tin Star be good enough for that, or is there another one I should try? Also, can you fill up with words to look like a normal book? In case anyone does find this, they won't get suspicious."

    After getting the answer, he thanked Henbane, closed the book, hopped into bed, cuddled his bear, then went to sleep.

    (OOC: I'll have it so that Vina already saw the answer before going to bed. XD That way, it wouldn't be difficult to move on.)

    Lovina Castiglioni
    Dorm Room
    Tome - Brimstone


    Lovina looked at Brimstone's page, reading its reply before looking up. To her side, she noticed that she had failed to remember to close her window. Cursing under her breath, she got down from her bed, leaving Brimstone and her laptop as she headed for her open window. She was about to close it, but however, a strange sight caught her eye from the boys' dorm just across. Another open window and an undressing male right in front of it, in plain sight. Lovina tried not to look, but she couldn't help but recognize who exactly he was. Third strike for that same guy, all in one night.

    Idiota! Why don't you close your window! It's not as if you're that hot or all that! You're just another stupid imbecile!

    Lovina did not know it, but she was blushing fiercely. Her face turned red as she saw his muscular arms and toned abs on full display while he slipped off his jeans, leaving himself in a pair of red boxers. Shaking her head quickly as she tried to rid herself of her blush, she looked back up at him and gave him the finger, moments before he drew the blinds. She turned away from the window and undid the ribbon holding her ponytail. The nerve of that boy...

    Once she was back in bed, she closed her laptop and placed it in her nightstand's drawer and took her bottle of prescription pills. She reopened Brimstone and sighed.

    "Thanks, I guess. Now...I don't want any nosy idiot peeking through you and finding out who you are. So, can you please...make your words into that of a Stephen King horror novel instead?" She said, waiting until the text morphed before she closed the book and hid it under her bed for the night. After popping a pill into her mouth, she allowed her head to rest on her pillow, turning off her nightlight as she did.

    Diego Vendrix
    Professor Gureshaw's Classroom
    Tome- Ebony


    Diego locked his door when he entered the room. He made a mental note to see if there was a spell to protect his room. He laid on his bed and read what Ebony had spoken.

    Tempest…


    "Tempest..." Diego said. He seem to recall a book like that. He needed to find out who it was though. He needed to be careful.


    Gut Grinder - Basic instructions for summoning a carrion eating monster, good if you have a body that needs hiding.

    Curling Poison - Your enemies will wither away with just a couple drops of curling poison.

    That Thing in the Mirror - Want to scare someone good? A possessed mirror is a surefire shock!


    Gut Grinder sounded gruesome and so did Curling Poison. The mirror one sounded hilarious though. Yet he felt... disappointed.

    "What is your speciality, Ebony? I mean, each book more or less has one. Even dark magic has different branches such as toxins, necromancy and so on," Diego elaborated.

    If you have attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an array, copy and paste this in your sig.

    Xavier Owens
    Professor Gureshaw's Classroom
    Tome - Burgundy


    Xavier could notice that everyone else was leaving, so he picked up his things and went on his way to his room. He checked "Rarity" again while he walked.

    Oh,well… I suppose that is a good question, but there are so many things to consider. I think could see myself enjoying being a man, or a woman, if I wasn’t a book, you know. I guess I’ll have to get back to you on that.

    As for your spells:


    Alchemy Plans: Metal Rings - Make sparkling rings for yourself or your sweetheart out of old metal scraps.

    You will need:
    A hard floor
    White chalk
    Metal scraps
    One of the diagrams below

    Draw one of the diagrams below on the floor with the chalk, depending on which ring you want to make. Place enough metal for a ring in the center of the design (about a coin’s worth will do in most cases). Chant, ex hoc metalli anulus fieri, until the metal starts to glow, within seconds it should transform.


    Below the instructions appeared three diagrams, the first for a plain round ring. The second for a flat ring with wavy patterns engraved in it, and the third for a ring or three woven bands.

    Alchemy Plans: Fancy Pillow - Silk, Velvet, or Satin, this may be the nicest pillow you ever own.

    You will need:
    A hard floor
    White chalk
    A nice fabric
    Thread
    Yarn
    Pillow stuffing

    Draw the diagram below on the floor. Place your materials in the center and chant; pillow fieri ex istis, until the materials begin to glow.


    Another diagram appears below it for the pillow. Just as he finsihed reading, he got to his dorm and went inside. Thankfully, he didn't have to share a room with anyone, so he didn't need to sneak around. His room was rather simple, but he had a few accessories lying here and there, including two posters on his wall. One was a Team Fortress 2 poster, the other a My Little Pony one. Xavier pulled out a spare notebook (he always had a spare one on hand) and a pencil and wrote down the recipes.

    After writing them down, he asked, "Hey Rarity. You have any spells for hiding objects, or spells that add extra space to something, kinda like a Bag of Holding? Also, do you have a more immediate way to hide yourself, because I don't think I could do anything about it tonight." He assumed calling the book Rarity would be alright considering that Burgundy didn't tell him otherwise.

    Arvixe sat at the empty chair over by the desk Xavier's custom made computer was on. He was being unusually quiet at the moment; most of the time he always has something to comment on, but now he just waited and watched. Xavier asked, "Hey Arvixe, what do you think my "instant magic" power thing that the Professor mentioned is? Personally, I think its Telepathy."

    "What makes you think that? Have you been reading people's minds?" Arvixe responded. Xavier just assumed he must have not been able to think of anything earlier.

    "That's mind reading Arvixe, not telepathy. And no, but I think its a logical guess. I'm intelligent, and use my thoughts alot. Plus, there's you. Its not like just anyone can make a tulpa you know. Just saying, I think Telepathy would make a hell of a lot more sense than something like being able to talk to spirits, or being able to mezmerize people."

    Arvixe nodded in responce, then continued to stare off into space. Even though I'm generally a night owl, I was getting pretty tired at this point, so after I found a way to hide Rarity I'd turn in for the night.

    (OOC: Doing the events of Senor's post from Cameron's view)

    Cameron Kingston
    Hallway
    Driftwood


    Cameron felt something crash into him as he got up. He almost seemed to have fallen over, he quickly regained his ground. He heard a voice yell at him when he got a little clear headed

    "Watch where you're going you bloody oaf! The second damn person today. Now I need a shower." He quickly closed his textbook and put it under his arm.

    Wait... Isn't he my roommate? Well... I got a bone to pick with him

    "Hey, aren't you my roommate? Also, stop hogging the damn shower! You know how long I've been killing for a stable shower?" Cameron seemed to yell at him

    "Well, excuse me for trying to stay f****** clean! You're just gonna have to deal with it if you're staying with me!" The other seemed to boom in comparison to him.

    Is he one of those neat freaks!? Damn, I did get stuck with a prick... Well, wasn't his name Lucas or something?

    "You bloody ninny, I'd like to see you scream and writhe on a boat." Lukas retaliated, "Do I care about that? I don't have to waste my time with the likes of you when I could be in the shower!" Infuriated, the boy stormed off to get to his room, stomping hard enough to be heard. Cameron quickly closed his book and ran towards him, yelling "Hey! Don't leave me here. I'm not like that, I promise!"

    He tripped over a loose floorboard, sending his glasses flying, as he caught it, he slammed into Luke.Both of the spellbooks were sent flying into the air, and Cameron quickly caught Driftwood while Luke was retrieving his.


    "Get off of me you little s***! Stop touching me! I hate it!"They boy under him was flailing. Cameron got off, and started to head towards the room, leaving behind a "Hey, you bastard, I'm a klutz, and weren't you the one who bumped into me first?"in a teasing tone.

    "No, you're much more than a f****** klutz! You went chasing after me! Just stay away! I can't be touched again!" Luke had already grabbed his book and is now clutching it, and himself, tightly. He looked like he was flustered and panicked. Though, did he see something on his cheeks, or was it Cameron's imagination?

    W-what!? Man, he needs to lighten up... I mean, seriously, his he that blind to not know that we have bacteria all over our body?

    "Uh, excuse me? I was going to OUR room. Jeez, you need to lighten up a bit, I mean, it's not like we're being watched an' analysed the entire time, right?" Cameron laughed and smiled as he put on his glasses. He then checked his book and put it into his satchel.

    "Stop... Just leave me alone! Stop being such a kiss a** and f*** off!" Luke sprinted past them, and went into their room. He seemed to have closed the bathroom door just as Cameron arrived. He was a little agitated, and hurt by the comment.

    "You bloody moron," Cameron tried to yell at him, but the water probably drowning him out. He suddenly got soft, a forgotten memory reaching his head "you wouldn't... understand." He laid against the dresser crying.

    ~
    "Cameron! Wait up!" The teacher yelled at him as he walked out of the door. It was their teacher, Ms. Amagi. Even though she was born and raised in japan, and was roughly around his age, she still got the job done. She was also very attractive herself, but was a stern and good teacher.

    "What is it? Cameron closed his eyes and gave her a heartwarming smile, his blond hair seemingly moved off his eyes. He was wearign the standard uniform, though, a dirty one, as the laundry was still being done, so a ketchup stain was on it's right arm.

    "I have to say... I'm sorry for your loss..." She said wit ha concerned voice. She always cared for her students.

    "It's fine. We both knew our lives were at risk, but it had to be down... THe sacrafice of one is better then us all dying? We both understood that." Cameron told her. She looked at him in shock

    "I don't understand... How you could be so cheery and optimistic when you saw something like that happen in front of you... It's only been one day, but you look better then every. I don't understand..." She told him, in shock.

    "I have to be strong, Ms. Amagi. We all live and die, and even if I'm crying on the inside, I have to stay strong. I... want to make people happy... that's all." He responded to her, a single, crystal tear falling from his cheek.

    "You know, you can call me Sakura if you want. We're friends after all. I'm only about seven years older than you? Well, besides that... some of the other students have been calling you a freak. I jsut wanted to let you know... even though you're enduring such hard times. I can... understand that there are people like you, always robust and looking towards the future, but others don't do that. I'll... see you soon." She told him with a heartfelt smile, before walking away. That realization hit him harder than a wave could ever do. He silently walked to his dorm room, and cried himself to sleep.

    ~

    As soon as it left him, he checked his book.

    Short of going out to sea in search of sirens, you might ask the Professor, he’s an experienced witch after all.

    He answered the second question in what could be considered a mocking manner;

    Have you considered dumping salt into it?

    Tears fell onto the old pages, and he silently cursed the book

    "Alright... Thanks.

    For the second one... I was serious. Is there a way to transform salt water into fresh water, and vice versa?" Cameron asked before drifting off into sleep, leaving the book open in his lap.


    I look sugary and sweet, but in reality I'm just hollow and rotten.

    @ (Jean Grey) Lovina - Brimstone

    Weak ink scrawled across the surface of Brimstone’s parchment;

    Amethyst charms not that hard to get a hold of, sold at many rock and jewelry shops.

    As for spell choices, I think these spells will convey a sense of ambition, as necromancy is generally a more complex type of magic.



    @ (Food Guy) DD - Hemlock

    Alright, agreed Hemlock, I shall try to select the spells most likely to be effective for you.


    @ (Monster Guy) Leo - Henbane
    (Clever, despite how many kids take notes with their cell phones nowadays, few people do in RPGs.)

    Words rapidly refilled Henbane’s pages;
    I believe so, it’s a good starter spell, and you seem confident. There’s a whole bunch of spells you could try of course, but if you take too long picking you’ll miss the deadline! Can’t have that can we? Professor Gureshaw didn’t directly say it, but he doesn’t tolerate failure for long.

    Of course I can!

    Henbane’s pages filled with additional text, what appeared to be a field guide of plants in England.


    @ (Jean Grey) Lovina (again)- Brimstone

    Brimstone, never having read or been shelved with a Steven King novel, tried for the next best thing, filling it’s pages with text from the novel Frankenstein which it had once been shelved with.


    @ (DVB) Diego - Ebony

    Ebony’s response came after a short period of hesitation;

    Black magic is my specialty. Though I suppose a good number of my spells have a necromantic or monstrous twist.


    @ (Billy Mays) Xavier - Burgundy

    Burgundy’s spells faded and the fancy letters of it’s new reply surfaced;

    Well you could always make a Double Dimension Satchel. Some witches like the Magic Box spell, but I think it’s overused.

    Do you want me to transform? I can take the shape of something else, like a picture frame or a cell phone, or even an animal.



    @ (Lost Requiem) Cameron - Driftwood

    Ink spread across the still open pages of the book in Cameron’s lap;

    For that you’ll need a to make a Salt Valve Charm.

    Salt Valve Charm - With this charm you’ll be able to freshen salt water in a snap. Reset the valve when fresh water is more convenient.

    You will need:
    Aluminum wire
    A very small bottle
    A coin with a hole in it
    A small bone, with ends removed
    Wire, string, chain, etc to suspend the bottle from

    Use the aluminum wire to wire the coin to the bottle. Also attach the suspension string/wire/chain. Take the bone and chip it small enough to fit snuggly in the bottle opening.

    When you suspend this bottle in salt water, the salt will collect in the bone, once the bone is full, turn it around and suspend the bottle in fresh water to release the salt. Return the bone to it’s original position and you’ll be ready to collect salt once more.

    Francois "Frank" LeBeau
    Prof. Gureshaw's Classroom


    Francois arrived to the class with his grey backpack in tow. He decided to bring it along since this was a class. Francois felt an faint tingling sensation all over as he stepped into the class. He was uncertain why it happened so suddenly, but he paid no mind to it. He took a seat towards the front and awaited instruction. In the room were other students that he had seen around before, but he hadn't had any prolonged interaction with any of them. The professor realized that the all of the class was present and began the lesson.

    “Okay, so we have a lot to cover tonight, because there are several things you need to know. First, you can probably feel the power of your spell books already. These books are powerful objects, and in some ways, alive. Please treat them with respect, as any magical artifact can be dangerous when abused.”

    Spellbooks?! Francois had an interest in reading about the subject of magic, but he was certain that it did not exist. He had indeed felt an odd sensation when he entered the room, but he wasn't sure if magic would be the best conclusion to jump to. He was just as interested as he was skeptical, so he stayed seated, silently, to see where this classes was headed.

    “Or put in the wrong hands. Most of your books will only respond to the voice of their own witch, but since some of them are more open-minded than that, I suggest you don’t leave them anywhere anyone else might find them. Simply speak to your book and it will show you answers to your inquiries. Some of you may even be able to speak with your books telepathically. This called Instant Magic, every witch has a special ability, such as telepathy, mesmerization… or telekinesis.”

    The professor seemed to continue on with this far-fetched theory of magic. Maybe this is just a theories class and nothing more. Frank was going to get up and leave, but the professor caught his attention. Frank looked up to see a book levitate a few inches above Professor Gureshaw's hand. Frank's eyes narrowed and his mouth dropped open ever so slightly. He returned to his seat, being convinced that something unusual was happening.

    “It may take you a bit of time to figure out your Instant ability, but once you do, you’ll realize, it could never have been anything else. So, then, let’s take a short break before we go on, so all of you can examine your books, and ask any questions you might have.”

    Frank sat for a second as he analyzed what had just occurred. I know that I am not seeing things. The book did in fact levitate, and if it didn't, this is a very elaborate prank. He decided to follow the instructions given to him and walked to the magical bookcase. He knelled down to examine the books, running his finger tips along the spines of them. The were a variety of books on the self; each one with different colors and textures and engravings. His fingertips tingled a bit as they passed over each book. An intense but painless jolt spread up his arm as his fingers passed over the cold metallic spine of one of the books. I guess this is mine? He took the book from the shelf as he examined it. It was fairly thin. He opened the book to find blank pages. No information at all. Is it a magical diary? Professor Gureshaw did mention that we should speak to the book...it's worth a shot. Frank went back to his seat near the professor and stared at the black page for a while.

    "I know that you are magical in some aspect, so what exactly can you do? I'm going to also assume that you have a name and gender, so I would like to know that as well. Also, any details about your history, likes, or dislikes would be helpful." Frank figured that he may as well jump into the activity at full force. The worst that could happen is that the book would do nothing, and he would look silly for trying.

    *Book Dialogue

    Frank took a moment from his conversation as Professor Gureshaw began to speak, “See, instant magic is a special technique that witches can use without performing spells, making potions, or constructing talismans. It’s called Instant because it doesn’t take any preparation and therefore can be used right away. Everyone’s powers is unique, but they usually fall into categories. I for example have Telekinesis and can levitate objects as many other witches do, but exactly how big of objects, how high, or how fast I can levitate objects is unique to me. Some of the most common Instant magic techniques are; telepathy, wild speech, spirit contact, telekinesis, and mesmerization. On very rare occasions a witch will have more than one Instant ability.”

    I wonder what my instant ability is. Frank pondered what it would be like to speak to wild animals or to the dead. Maybe he could levitate objects as well. He turned back to his book. He decided that later he could ask about ways to find out what his instant ability is. Frank continued conversing with his book. Eventually the Professor went over the rules of this class, using magic, and having the book. I will definitely come up with some ways to keep this book safe. Professor Gureshaw assigned homework before dismissing the class, so Frank wrote it down into his planner. He began to think about some spells to try. A fight interrupted his thoughts, but he just removed himself from the vicinity of the chaos.

    Ethan Hunter
    Professor Gureshaw's classroom
    Tome- Tempest


    Ethan looked over the steps for the Magic Box carefully. It didn't seem too difficult. Luckily, he already had a box that would fit the purpose of the spell and most of the other components seemed like they would be easy to find. He could probably get some oil from the shop class. An art class would likely have the white string, or ribbon, and there might be some origami paper there too. A rag he could find just about anywhere, although he did wince slightly at the thought of having to damage it with the oil, even if it was just a rag. Yes, he decided that he would go looking for these ingredients soon.

    He glanced over the more simple spells briefly, but then noticed that many of his classmates were heading off and found himself to be tired as well. So Ethan decided to head to his room before looking over the spell. He was lucky enough to have a single bedroom, which is smaller but allows him far more privacy. When Ethan got to his room he turned on the lights and changed into his pajamas, which were nice, but slightly worn. He then opened Tempest up and began reading the list of spells.

    I think these spells may suit your needs:
    Confusion Custard
    Pep-me-up lemonade
    Shadowganger
    That Thing in the Mirror
    Fundamental Talismans, No. 2
    Nightmare pillow
    Cloud Call
    Alchemy Plans: Thimble
    Alchemy Plans: Counterfeit Penny
    Alchemy Plans: Bat Shaped Buttons


    Various spells on the list looked like they might be good to try out, but Ethan remembered the two Fundamental Talismans that she recommended earlier seemed useful.

    Making his decision Ethan said,"Alright Tempest, please show me the plans for the Fundamental Talismans, No. 2, I'll read it in the morning. I think I'm going to use that spell for Gureshaw's assignment. Good night."

    Ethan then went over to his small bookshelf. He took a brief note of how he was allowed to bring so few books from his, there were only about twenty (of course excluding textbooks). Well the sever lack of books did make finding a temporary hiding place for Tempest a cinch. When he was done she blended in well with the other books, but someone actively looking through them would be able to spot that she was different. Ethan frowned as he put Tempest away and that feeling of rightness and power faded. He turned off his light and finally went to bed.

    Diego Vendrix
    Professor Gureshaw's Classroom
    Tome- Ebony


    Ebony’s response came after a short period of hesitation. During that time Diego had been writing names down of people who were in their. He didn't know much of who had which book, but he figured he would learn soon. He could not trust most of them just yet. He looked to one of the shelves he had. On it was the unopened chess set his brother gave him for a present. Diego wasn't much of a chessplayer.

    Yet, he felt that he would soon use it symbolically.

    Black magic is my specialty. Though I suppose a good number of my spells have a necromantic or monstrous twist.

    Diego rolled his eyes. He was admittingly disappointed. Looks the speciality of his tome was mildly malevolent spells with a few possibly dangerous ones, but nothing that appealed to him. I mean, what was black magic anyway? I mean there is necromancy, summoning monsters, possession, mind control, destruction, making toxins, etc

    "What sort of desires did your former masters have?" Diego asked as he looked at the tome. "Like what sort of spells did they prefer?" Diego elaborated before he yawned. He better get ready for bed soon enough.

    @(thesilverwolf) Francois - Circuit

    Thick blocky letters scrolled across Circuit’s pages, the paper of which was slightly shiny;
    Well, you’re analytical. My name is Circuit. I’m a more recent creation than most of the tomes here, being an experiment in fusing magic and technology. Not only can I provide you with my stored spell instructions, but I can interfere with machinery. I guess I would consider myself male.

    Likes and Dislikes, hun? Well, please don’t get me wet. I don’t like that at all! I like the hum of electricity, so if I could be shelved next working technology, I’d appreciate that.



    @ (Balightning) Ethan - Tempest

    Tempest’s pages filled with the requested spell;
    Fundamental Talismans, No. 2 - No collection of charms and talismans is complete without a talisman to extrude fear. Fundamental Talismans compiled by Edgar Mann.

    You will need:
    A collection of small items, stolen from people whom you wish feared you
    Twine, chain, and other bindings agents
    Keyring

    There is no set method of making Talisman No. 2, basically use your binding agents to form a conglomeration out of the small items, and attach this glob to your key ring. Simple, ugly, and full of stolen items, it’s best to keep this talisman hidden from view.



    @ (DVB) Diego - Ebony
    (Which witch has which witch book?)

    Ebony’s tiny script rolled across the page;
    Well, I guess most my former masters wanted power, in one way or another, basically, each in his own way. Didn’t do them a lot of good did it? They’re all dead… as is every other former witch who ever owned one of us books. I had a couple masters who really like the monster spells. Though you should probably be cautious, seeing as one of them got eaten. One of the witches, that is. The monster did the eating.

    Well, I guess most my former masters wanted power, in one way or another, basically, each in his own way. Didn’t do them a lot of good did it? They’re all dead… as is every other former witch who ever owned one of us books. I had a couple masters who really like the monster spells. Though you should probably be cautious, seeing as one of them got eaten. One of the witches, that is. The monster did the eating.

    Diego read and reread the script before he began laughing. He imagined it must have shocked the book.

    "Well, Ebony. Let me teach you something. First of all, this proves why I am not a bad person. Power tends to corrupt or rather those who seek it for the wrong reasons. Technacalities, details, exceptions and rules of grey aside, bad folk usually dabbling in this kind of stuff gets this. That's why being a 'goody-goody' is good," Diego says as he looks to his tome.

    "Secondly, everyone dies. It's the fate of mortals. Of course, that doesn't matter. What matters is what you do with your life. I wanna help people, make em happy, see them smile. Despite your black magic, I believe we can do some serious good together," Diego says with a confident grin to the book.

    "What kind of monsters do you have? Might be good to have a companion," Diego says. "Also, how would I prepare to use Spirit Contact?" he asks further.

    Prof. Gureshaw's Classroom


    Frank looked down at the thick blocky text that appeared in his book:

    "Well, you’re analytical. My name is Circuit. I’m a more recent creation than most of the tomes here, being an experiment in fusing magic and technology. Not only can I provide you with my stored spell instructions, but I can interfere with machinery. I guess I would consider myself male.

    Likes and Dislikes, hun? Well, please don’t get me wet. I don’t like that at all! I like the hum of electricity, so if I could be shelved next working technology, I’d appreciate that."

    Frank was definitely interested in this book, now. He was passed his stage of shock and was now in a state of pure curiosity. He had so many questions to ask, but class was nearly over. He realized he had a newer book which came with perks; it was a magic and technology hybrid.

    Frank began his rapid-fire questions again to get a better understanding of Circuit, "So, Circuit, what was your previous owner like? Is there a reason that someone created a book that is both magical and technological. Also, what type of magic do you specialize in? Let me know if I am going to fast for you."

    Frank's curiosity had taken over, and he was completely enthralled with the book in his hands.

    OKAY… let’s all fast forward to around 7:00 am when you need to get up and get ready for class!

    @ (DVB) Diego - Ebony

    Ebony started to reply before Diego had finished talking;
    Teach me? Of course I know that everyone dies! What do you think I was just saying?

    Why do you want to do good so badly? Is it fun for you or something? At least you’re still interested in my monsters… So there’s a lot of different monsters; Gut Grinders and Bone Monsters, Dragons & Hydras, Ghouls & Goblins, King Rats & Legions, Bunnicorn & Jackelope… knowing what you’re looking for in a companion monster would help.

    To use Spirit Contact, if that is indeed you power, you’ll need to find a concentration method that works for you. Some people meditate, or put themselves into a state of hypnosis or trance, others perform a séance. Sometimes though, it just happens, a spirit is there any they can see and hear it.



    @(thesilverwolf) Francois - Circuit
    (Name at top of post please)

    Circuit’s new test overwrote the old;
    I think Mathew was annoyed at the lack of technology related spells. With all the technology around us making life easier, he didn’t feel that magic suited the modern witches needs anymore because so much of it is outdated. Why do a dishwashing spell when you have a dishwasher? How helpful is a instant letter delivery spell when you can text? So, obviously I specialize in technological spells, because that was the area of witchcraft he wished to improve.

    Tome- Ebony

    Diego had woken up at 6 AM. He had fallen asleep waiting for Ebony to answer him. She didn't seem annoyed at him however. He checked out his radio clock.

    It was 7:00 AM.

    He was already showered, dressed and ready to start for breakfast.

    He wasn't sure if Ebony was a boy or girl but acted a bit feminine. Well, the gothy kind anyway.

    Teach me? Of course I know that everyone dies! What do you think I was just saying?

    "I do good because it feels good, it is the right thing to do. It feels natural for me," Diego explained to his book. He began looking at some. Wait... dragons?

    "What are bone monsters? Also, what kind of dragons?" Diego said. With the latter, he had a big goofy grin. Because, they're freaking dragons man.

    He read on Spirit Contact. "All right. I will try and meditate. Is there a charm to help get in touch with it or at least a protection circle?" Diego asked.

    Ethan Hunter
    Ethan's Room
    Tome- Tempest


    Ethan's alarm sounded at 6:45 AM and he wanted nothing more than to turn it off and go back to sleep. He only managed to get about five hours of sleep and he was not in best state. Despite this, Ethan managed to get himself out of bed. He made his bed and inspected the outfit that he was going to wear for the day. All of Ethan's clothes seemed to be in good shape, he did notice that his shoes could benefit from a polishing though. After touching the pants he was able to tell that the legs of the pants seemed to be becoming a little worn, but still perfectly wearable. Satisfied with his choice he took a quick shower and brush his teeth.

    After Ethan was done getting his appearance straightened out he allowed himself to check to see what Tempest wrote last night. As he gently took her from the self he smiled. That feeling that he had when he first touched Tempest returned to him, albeit it was less suprising. He opened her up and read what she had written.

    Fundamental Talismans, No. 2 - No collection of charms and talismans is complete without a talisman to extrude fear. Fundamental Talismans compiled by Edgar Mann.

    You will need:
    A collection of small items, stolen from people whom you wish feared you
    Twine, chain, and other bindings agents
    Keyring

    There is no set method of making Talisman No. 2, basically use your binding agents to form a conglomeration out of the small items, and attach this glob to your key ring. Simple, ugly, and full of stolen items, it’s best to keep this talisman hidden from view.


    The spell was not what Ethan was expecting, to say the least. He was expecting...well he didn't know what he was expecting but it wasn't this. He began to wonder why this was a fundamental talisman. Ethan thought it could be that witches found it safer when normal people just kept away from them. Fear would be a great motivater for that. Or it is quite possible that this Edgar Mann is Machiavellian in his thinking process. Not that that's wrong, Ethan has pondered on the philosophy of fear versus love and found himself unsure of his own stance on the matter.

    The spell itself was really simple, and he felt that it would be too bad if he tried it out. A little fear most likely wouldn't cause too many problems. And Ethan didn't want to use it, but just test out the spell a little. After seeing it work he would stop using it. However, before then he needed to make the talisman and he didn't really know whom he could use it on. It would just be something that Ethan would have to think on some more.

    "Thank you, Tempest. This seems like it will be a good spell to try out for my first time," Ethan said, he then thought for a moment and continued, "I was a little preoccupied with being shown the existence of magic and I never did ask you about yourself. You said that you were Morgan le Fay's book, that itself is a topic I may ask you about later, but is there anything else that you feel I should know?"

    (OOC: I'm going to be using Chase's roommate in this post.)
    Chase Lewis
    Chase's dorm
    Tome - Rusty


    Chase awoke to his roommate Michael poking him in the arm. "Dude... seriously, get up already! It's 7 o'clock!" he was shouting, "I know that book of yours must have been very interesting, so you fell asleep while reading, but now you need to get up." Chase sat up, a little dazed, and flashed a glare at Michael, who was already dressed, showered, and ready for the day. Man, what time does he get up? Chase thought. Michael went over to his bed and started remaking the covers. Chase dragged himself to get some fresh clothes and get to the shower.

    As soon as he was done with his shower and had put his red collared shirt and black jeans on, he speed-walked out to his bed. Having new clothes on always gave him extra energy. He went to his night stand, and on it was an ivory box with a black rose painted on the lid. Chase slowly opened the box to reveal the ruby rose necklace. He took it out and put it around his neck gently, the closed the box with the same amount of care.

    Michael stared at the pendant. "Isn't that a bit girly for a boy to be wearing?" he asked.

    Chased closed his eyes and put his hand over the pendant. "It... it's all I have left of my sister. I don't care if it's girly, I will wear it," Chase replied. He opened his eyes, and went over to Rusty, still lying peacefully on the bed. He picked it up and held it in the crook of his arm, smiling at it and whispering a good morning under his breath so Michael wouldn't hear.

    As soon as Chase touched the book, Michael had to ask. "So... what is that book? It looks pretty old to me."

    Chase quickly thought up a cover for the book. "It's one of my ancestor's journals. My great-great-great... lots of great-grandfather's journal. I saw it on my dad's bookshelf and decided to read it," he said, stuttering every so often. Michael nodded his head, and Chase flopped down on his bed and began pretending to read.

    @ (DVB) Diego - Ebony

    Ebony’s tiny script looped across the page;
    Bone Monsters are monsters generally made by the combining and rearranging of multiple skeletons, and then reanimating them. Though advanced Necromancers are capable of combining already reanimated skeletons into bone monsters.

    All sorts of dragons; Wyvern, Wurms, Hydras, Fairy Dragons, and Amphisbaena.

    Generally someone skilled in Spirit Contact does not need anything outside their person, otherwise it would not be instant magic.



    @ (Balightning) Ethan - Tempest

    Words appeared on the page across from the spell;
    I was Morgan’s first spell book.

    I suppose you should know that with a book as powerful as me, you’ll probably have to watch you back around the other witches. But you seem like an alert kid.



    @ (TheSketchQueen) Chase - Rusty

    Single words in the diversion journal entries became bolder;
    … what’s … with … this … guy … ? … just … leave … it … alone

    Lucas Kendall
    Dorm Room
    Tome - Cumulous

    Luke awoke around 5:00 in the morning and carefully slipped out of his bed. As soon as he got out he began to set it, folding and arranging the sheets and pillows in the proper order. Now's the time for a good morning shower after no f****** sleep. He then dragged himself over to his dresser and gently pulled out the appropriate clothes that were neatly folded from their specific drawer. Luke ironed everything. From his shirt, down to his undergarments. When he finishes preparing them he puts them each in an individual drawer.

    He took notice of Cumulous, sitting on top of his dresser. Ahh, the homework. I must check it soon, and I need a proper place for Cumulous. He took note and headed towards the bathroom, clothes in hand, and spotted Cameron who was still laying by the dresser across the room. "Tsch- almost forgot about the imbicile," he muttered under his breath. He decided once again to leave him there and went to shower. An hour and a half passed before he emerged from the bathroom. It was around 6:40 by then.

    Feeling fresh, and truly awake, Luke was in a slightly better mood. Then, memories from last night began to flood his mind. He stared at Cameron, thinking about his past actions. Perhaps I was a bit too harsh... but, it was that nit wit's fault. He felt a click in his head with the thought of the word nit wit. Then he remembered, it was the password to Cumulous, who was still locked. His cheeks slowly turned rosy. Great, my password is after... him. He grabbed Cumulous off the dresser and reluctantly said his password.

    "N-nit wit...", the book opened. The words appeared as if they couldn't wait to be read. "I'm sorry I kept you waiting so damn long..." he said quickly, wanting to get his apology in.

    You could try Spring Rain, it causes a short shower. Ingredients are easy to find and there’s not many of them.

    "That sounds great, Cumulous. May I please see the the list of ingredients and instructions?" He heard his alarm begin to ring. It was 7 o' clock. He glanced at Cameron again, still asleep on the floor. This bloke will be late for class if he doesn't get up now. He walked over to Cameron, feeling awkward. He gave him a quick, hard tap on his shoulder and pulled back in disgust. "Jeez, wake up! Unless you want to be late to class. You can sleep as long as you f****** want for all I care..."

    Not wanting to be late himself, he slipped into his slippers and put Cumulous into his pack. I'll have to find time for you later. As he had the thought he pulled out his portable bottle of antibacterial and disinfected his hands. Only kills 99.9% of these bloody germs. How pitiful!

    Kelly Green
    Kelly's Dorm ---> Professor Gureshaw's Classroom


    Kelly yawned and stretched her hands toward the ceiling. It was too early to be awake at this-- wait a minute. She spun around, causing her blankets and sheets to twist around her. She squinted in the dark. It was impossible to see anything. Where was her phone? What time was it? She felt around her desk awkwardly until she was able to switch on her lamp. The light blinded her and she rolled over a bit too far. KERPLUNK! She fell from the bed and smacked her forehead on her desk on the way down. Immediately she curled into a fetal position and clutched the small lump that was forming above her right eye. As the throbbing subsided she opened her eyes and saw her phone had fallen under her bed. She reached over and grabbed it. She wasted no time switching it on: 12:50 AM it read. The color drained from her face. Had she missed the entire craft class? She decided to try anyway. It was probably a joke, but she didn't want to miss out on anything special!

    She rushed down the stairs to the basement. In her haste, she was still dressed in her pajama pants and her hair was an absolute mess. She did manage to throw on a light jumper to cover up her sleeping shirt. As she reached the bottom of the stairs, Kelly heard voices coming from the classroom where she was supposed to meet. She didn't want to burst in and declare she was late, so she lingered by the door. The voices were difficult to hear through the door; all she heard was mumbling. After working up the courage, she reached for the handle, only for it to open on its own as a crowd of students she had never met before streamed from the room. They had peculiar books tucked under their arms, and she blinked curiously as they walked by. None of them seemed to notice her. It sunk in then, that she had missed the class completely. Her heart plummeted to her chest. Would she be allowed to enroll still?

    Her legs trembled as she entered the classroom. The man she assumed to be the teacher was on the opposite side, by a strange shelf with a few books on it. Quietly, she crept closer to him and asked in a very small voice: "Um... are you the professor? I-I'm sorry I missed the class... Is it too late to join?"

    Well, he was not sure what bone monsters could be used for... then again, maybe he will be able to use them to remain in better contact with his etheral friends.

    All sorts of dragons; Wyvern, Wurms, Hydras, Fairy Dragons, and Amphisbaena.

    Well, Wurms and Hyrdas were out and he was not sure what were Amphisbaena. Fairy Dragons and Wyverns sounded interesting.

    "Tell me about Fairy Dragons and Wyverns," Diego asked Ebony as he decided to have a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich for breakfast.

    Generally someone skilled in Spirit Contact does not need anything outside their person, otherwise it would not be instant magic.

    Diego nodded as he decided to make some herbal tea. He was grateful to get care-packages, especially since his brother knows what he likes. The tea should help calm down and focus.

    From now on, new players should pick up their books at the NEXT class

    Time is now about 7:30 am

    @ (SenorLaughsaLot) Lucas - Cumulous

    Cumulous complied quickly;
    Spring Rain - A light refreshing spring shower, no matter the season!

    You will need:
    3 oz of violets (flowers and leaves)
    1 cup of sand
    1 tsp sugar
    Glass bottle
    Heat source

    Crush the violets as fine as possible. Put the crushed violets, sand, and sugar into your bottles. Swirl to mix, then heat as evenly as possible over your heat source.

    After cooling, the mixture may be used at any time. Make a circle around yourself from the sand-violet mixture. Rain should start within 30 seconds.



    @ (Unicorn) Kelly -Glen
    ~Prof Gureshaw~
    (Try to catch up to the current time in your next post)

    Professor Gureshaw turned to the cabinets and straightened up what was left of his lower level magic book collection. Some of these books might be too picky, but they’d run out of choices soon enough.

    He spun about upon hearing the young lady’s voice. Poor girl looked a mess, hair all frizzed up in a bad case of bed head, still her pajamas though she tried to hide it with a sweater, and a lump the size of a half-dollar on her forehead.

    “Oh dear, you are quite late, aren’t you?” he mused looking over her. He took a small compact from his pocket. Popping it open he reveled a batch of light green cream, a healing salve. He brushed this with his index finger and tapped her head where the goose egg had formed.

    “Now dear, I expect you to be on time if you want to participate in this class in the future, as the teachings of witchcraft can’t be allowed to come into irresponsible hands. But I know this class is late, and it’s hard to get up, so I’ll let it pass this time,” he told her. Stepping aside he continued, “So now, if you still want to participate in this class, go ahead and pick a book.”

    He indicated the books in the cabinet next to him.


    @ (DVB) Diego - Ebony

    Ebony cleared her pages and begun fresh;

    Fairy Dragons are small dragons, often possessing multicolored insect-like wings. Both size and wings have resulted in them being dubbed Fairy Dragons or Fairy’s Dragons. Fairy Dragons can be slightly difficult to summon, but generally have gentler dispositions than most dragons, and come in a variety of colors.

    Wyvern are slender lizard-like dragons with leathery wings, capable of breathing fire. Commonly green, wyvern are usually found in forested areas. Summoning requires moderate skill, but the real challenge with a Wyvern is controlling it’s predatory nature. Wyvern are capable of eating a small herd of cows in just a few minutes.

    Lovina Castiglioni
    Dorm Room
    Tome - Brimstone


    Lovina stepped out of the shower, wrapping a towel around herself and another over her long, dark auburn hair. She had been awake ever since six and was having a hard time going back to sleep again, having reduced her pill intake. She padded out of the bathroom and sat back down on her bed, pulling out Brimstone once again. She opened it and saw that he had indeed changed his text to that of the novel Frankenstein.

    Looking to see if her door was still locked, she hid Brimstone under her pillow and undid the towel around her hair, drying it for a while before heading for her dressing table and plugging in her hairdryer. After she was finished, she then dressed up in the outfit she chose for the day: a simple black button-up halter vest with silver cross buttons and a dark green velvet mini. After slipping on her gloves and putting on a black leather choker around her neck, she took her hair ribbon and started to tie her hair before she stopped, deciding that she was going to leave her hair down for the day. She then tied the ribbon around her left wrist.

    Once she was finished, she headed back for her bed and pulled Brimstone out from under her pillow, opening it once again as she reminded herself to go out and buy some amethyst jewelry later after her afternoon classes as well as perhaps, save some of her chicken bones from her lunch. Remembering her choices, she recalled one of the stranger ingredients: powdered mummy.

    "Say, Brimstone. It's seriously safe now. Tell me, where do you expect me to get my hands on some powdered mummy? Also, can you show me how to carry out Dance Macabre and how a Séance works?" She asked, looking down at the book's worn pages.

    Leonardo "Leo" Silverstone
    Leo's Dorm room
    Tome - Henbane


    Leo stepped out of the bathroom, with a towel around his waist. Having been up since 6 AM, he had two bowls of cereal for breakfast, then decided to take a bubble bath for a bit. At first, he was upset when he found out he didn't have a roommate. He would've appreciated having someone to talk to. But after being introduced to the world of magic last night, he concluded that it was for the best. Figuring that he wouldn't have to constantly sneak around.

    He went to his closet, and pulled out the clothes he was going to wear that day, a navy blue T-shirt that looked to have the sleeves cut off, a pair of khaki cargo shorts which he kept held up with a brown leather belt, his usual pair of red sneakers, and his favorite pair of goggles on top of his head, and got dressed.

    After he finished, he picked up his red backpack, filled with his necessary items for school. Before he left to start class, he looked at Henbane sitting on his nightstand, and wondered if he should take her with him to class or not. On the one hand, it would be safer in the room, on on the other hand, she may come in handy, and he may want to see the ingridients for another spell during the day. He opened the book, and saw that it's text had become a field guide to plants in England. He giggled to himself, it would be hilarious if he wound up needing this information for Biology class or something.

    After some deliberation, he decided to leave her in the room. He wouldn't know what to tell the Professor if she got lost somehow... Also, talking to his spellbook in a crowded hallway would arouse suspicion and strange looks. Besides, he had the instructions for Tin Star saved on his phone. He placed her on a bookshelf, said good morning and good bye to his stuffed animals, and prepared to head out the door.

    Diego Vendrix
    Professor Gureshaw's Classroom
    Tome- Ebony


    Fairy Dragons are small dragons, often possessing multicolored insect-like wings. Both size and wings have resulted in them being dubbed Fairy Dragons or Fairy’s Dragons. Fairy Dragons can be slightly difficult to summon, but generally have gentler dispositions than most dragons, and come in a variety of colors.

    Diego nodded. Those would make good companions. However, he would like to see how they looked like. He decided to listen to about the Wyvern.

    Wyvern are slender lizard-like dragons with leathery wings, capable of breathing fire. Commonly green, wyvern are usually found in forested areas. Summoning requires moderate skill, but the real challenge with a Wyvern is controlling it’s predatory nature. Wyvern are capable of eating a small herd of cows in just a few minutes.

    Diego though of Toothless upon hearing about the wyvern. He was not sure if he would be able to ride one. Well, there were many, Many reasons. However, he decided to go with the fairy dragon.

    "May I see a picture of the fairy dragon?" Diego asked, wondering if Ebony could do that. He was drinking the tea and taking deep breaths. He was reparing to meditate.

    Kelly Green
    Professor Gureshaw's Classroom ~1:00AM

    She flinched slightly when he rubbed the salve her on head. It was an unexpected gesture so it had caught her off guard. The mixture seemed to help though because the very light throbbing had all but disappeared the instant he touched the spot. How odd!

    There were only a few books remaining on the shelf. What were they for, she wondered? Tentatively, she reached for a book with a wooden cover. On its front was a burned engraving of a tree. She carefully wiped off a thin layer of dust and examined it carefully. The pages were blank inside, with a slight yellowing to them. Just how old was this book? The other books on the shelf weren't very interesting so she turned back to the professor and gave him a meek smile. This one was special somehow, and she held it close to her chest, her small fingers curling around it tightly.

    "This one," Kelly said.

    Kelly's Room- 7:30 AM

    She was absolutely stunned. A book that could talk? Witches? It was all so sudden, yet at the same time it set her heart aflutter with joy. She'd never felt special at any moment in her life before now. This was the first time she'd felt like something had gone right. This was her chance to prove to everyone that she was worthwhile. Maybe this book could help her impress her parents, or gain friends. She'd always felt like such an outcast. Maybe even... maybe this book would become her friend to...

    Her hands shook as she opened it's beautiful wooden cover. It was so precious to her already. And as the professor said, it would be terrible if it got into the wrong hands. She sat there, perched on her bed and her hands leafing through its delicate blank pages. She'd been so tired, half of what the professor had said to her hadn't really sunk in yet. As soon as she got back to her room a few hours before, she fell asleep almost instantly. It could have all been a dream for all she knew. All she had to do was speak to it, he had told her. That much she remembered. Kelly took a deep breath.

    "Hello... I'm Kelly. What's your name?" she said, squeezing her eyes shut as if the book was going to suddenly come roaring to life and devour her for speaking.

    I was born a Unicorn
    I could've sworn you believed in me
    Then how come all the other Unicorns are dead?
