Class had handwavily been asked to dress slightly more nicely today, and Hannibal looked them over, nodded, and smiled.

"Today we are heading to Papua New Guinea," he announced. If anybody thought he was choosing these places by playing darts with a map...they were probably right. "It is an island country north of Australia, for those of you that know where that is. It is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, in no small part due to its position as a crossroads and years of colonial rule. It is also extremely rural, with most people not living in cities. Its cuisine is similarly diverse, with many strong influences from other cultures."

He led them through the portal and out onto a street in front of a large, luxurious hotel. It was early evening. "Today we are here less for the local cuisine, and more for the local foods. Both the produce and the seafood are incredibly fresh, and while I hesitate to ever endorse a buffet dinner, I understand this one is exemplary. We will be eating at the Grand Brasserie of the Grand Papua hotel. English is spoken by most here, but if you have any questions, please let me know."

Isabelle had meant to visit Flick at the Academy in Idris today, but something's things just didn't go according to plan. There had been a couple of major incidents of demonic activity in Manhattan earlier in the week, and so Isabelle had ended up doing patrol after patrol (missing her class in Fandom in the process) and staying at the Institute while the Conclave focused on tracking down whoever was causing so much trouble.

So she'd sent Flick a fire message, telling him she'd arranged the portals for him to come visit. And when he'd shown up, she'd told him they were going to be sparring. She was in the mindset for it, and she was curious about what it was like to fight him now, after so long at the Academy.

(Especially because she'd stopped sparring with him before he'd started his studies.)

And now they were in the training room at the Institute. Just the two of them; everyone else currently at the Institute were far too busy elsewhere.

Often, Isabelle trained in gear because she most often also fought in gear and so it made sense, but by Friday, she felt as if she'd been practically living in Marked gear all week, so she'd opted for more mundane workout clothes. You weren't going to see any sports bra/top and clingy exercise pants combos in the training halls of Alicante.

She finished putting her hair up into a bun, then stretched her arms. "You ready for this?"

For some reason, Dante had 'Under Pressure' stuck in his head. Normally, he'd have sighed and put something else on to clear it out, but every time he turned on the radio, U2 came out.

"Fine, whatever," he muttered, snagging an orange from the pile, and sank down behind the counter. "Under pressure, pushin' down on me..."

Hey, morning, Fandom. Is it just me, or is it a good one?



Anyway. Racing Battlewagon class kinda forgot what teams we were all in, so it got outta hand. Best Defence didn't have any bears this time, just defenses, so great work living up to your *FEEDBACK*ing name, I guess.

In town, in a move that's gonna be great for everybody, Lucille started her first day on the job at a place that's got Poison in the name. And apparently when I get to work, there's a ton of oranges that Octavia found on her shift, just laying around. At least Ades made it out to open up shop at Demon Marcus, and got a Hyacinthe--


... anyway. Kathy got some new stuff in to check out while she was playing video games, and I stopped by to say hi.


Yeah, that's why I'm having a good day. What of it? *shuffles papers* Kay, that's it. I'm outta here. Later!

It had taken over a week, but Ada was finally feeling enough like herself that she could be out in public in her usual attire of a tank-top and dubiously short miniskirt. There was remarkably minimal glitter, however, because she still didn't want to spend quality time touching her scales.

And since it was nice and warm and sunny, she was going to climb into the display windows amidst the mannequins and read in a sun patch until customers showed up. No reason to let the sunshine go to waste.

Demon Marcus was open, and the mermaid is in.

"Apparently some people think this class has too much emphasis on bears." And by some people, Cara meant Cassandra. Cassandra didn't like bears or joy. "Instead we're going to focus on fortifications, because I've been on this island long enough to know something's going to happen before the end of summer, and you can't always hide in the dorms."

"So, today you get to improvise defensive structures from whatever you can get your hands on, then see how they stand up."

Of course, the only building materials hand in the Danger Shop were pillows, but Cara just hoped she wouldn't have to come out and say it.

Today had been the first time there'd been a shipment of new stock to the store during one of Octavia's shifts. And she actually found herself vaguely excited by that. Vaguely, and faintly, but still. It was like getting to be the first to discover something new, no matter how small a thing.

Except then she opened the package, and it turned out to be filled with oranges. She even rummaged through it to the bottom of the box, but nope. All oranges.

So now her bag was stuffed with oranges, and there was a sign on the shop window that said FREE ORANGES.

She wasn't going to charge anyone for fruit at a music store. You'd have had to fight her to charge anyone for fruit at a fruit store, honestly.

Magnus had figured out more if the danger shop! That meant there were go-karts there for the kids to try out. It was a work in progress.

"Okay, so these are some very tiny battle-wagons, but they'll do for now," he said, eyeing the karts for a moment. "Do you remember your teams? I should have taken notes..."

It was like forgetting half his inventory all over again.

"If not, we can form new teams and race like that!" Yeah! "Okay, grab a kart and come up with a team name. It'll be fun!"

Unless you hated fun. In which case... why?

Yo Fandom, it's Hardison. Kinda glad to just be readin' local news today, where things are crazy, but the people generally ain't. An' thanks for that, y'all. Hold each other close an' maybe be extra-kind to each other over the next little while, a'ight?

Anyway, sermonizin' over, let's get to notes about School. Isabelle couldn't make it to Fightin' an' Fabulosity, so Electroclash stopped by to hit play on their movie. The Healin' Power of Crystals had Deadpool bringin' in blood-covered merchandise to promise the class a party at the end of the semesetr if they were good. Then he left to go Ebay that stuff an' the class dispersed, with Peridot an' Summer talkin' about romance novels with crystals in 'em, while Khadgar wanted to verify that the stuff Deadpool had was indeed covered in blood. Summer was hopin' for ketchup, but Shiemi's pretty sure it ain't. Magic of Plants also had a movie day, but Karla was there to have a discussion after it was over. Lucille seemed to have lots of thoughts that Karla picked up on, an' Shiemi stayed after class to talk about agave plants. At the Library, Peridot was readin' her romance novels when Karla stopped by to return a very overdue book.

No Dorms, but Summer was in Town, durin' class, visitin' The Perk. After classes, Lucille settled into her job at Groovy Tunes, playin' the keyboard. An' Peter at Covent Gardens was practicin' flower arrangin'...with tentacles. A'ight then. That's sure a thing I just read.

An' on that note, Hardison out. Stay strong everybody.

 Lucille had a new job, which pleased her. Not that she was going to sell poisons, but she didn't mind bath products, and it meant she could earn more money.

And so far the shop didn't seem to offer any annoying oddities. Lucille spent the day familiarizing herself with what was on offer on the shelves, and made sure everything looked neat.

[Open! The new employee won't sell something that could kill you.]

Okay, Kathy's fingers were starting to hurt from practicing. She was able to practice longer than she had when she'd first started, but she was developing another blister on her right index finger and the indents the strings left in her skin were pretty deep and getting red. Time to set it aside for awhile and focus on something else.

Raven would probably appreciate not heaving to hear scales and Smoke on the Water for the hundredth time today, too.

Maybe she should get out her Dad-dating sim game. She was getting really close to locking down the romance with Hot-Coffeeshop!Dad, but there was something about Goth!Dad that kept her debating which dad to go for.

Though the real star of the show was the daughter. Everybody knew that.

Orrrr...there was a whole shipment from merchandisers looking to sell to Dite's that she needed to go through and see if she wanted to stock any of them. Free samples were all well and good, but it did mean she had to go pawing through some really weird stuff.

Decisions, decisions.

Wow. There were...a lot of cards here. As weird island occurrences went, that was fairly mild, but some of them did give Peter ideas.

Which was why he was attempting to create some flower arrangements with a set of tentacles he'd transformed his arms into.

And occasionally having to use his magic to catch the damn things when they toppled over; his tentacles weren't nearly as dexterous as fingers. He really didn't see the appeal.

Well, then. Since Mr. Deadpool ducked out of dumb crystals class and Summer had time to kill before not as dumb as she thought it would be Plant class, Summer was headed to the Perk for some coffee whether or not anyone else in the class took her up on her offer to get some. Because coffee was awesome and blow off classes were awesome, even if sometimes you wished your classes were a little more useful, but, then again, this meant you could spend half of your school day in a comfy chair drinking coffee confections that were probably more sugar than coffee, let's be honest.

It was a habit she could definitely get used to.

Peridot was absolutely hard at work today, really.

Honest. She had been. Until, in re-shelving books, she stumbled across some kind of fantasy romance piece about a matriarchal society with a strong affinity for gemstones, and...

She came from one of those, okay? She had to investigate. And investigating quickly turned into settling in and reading, and when she was finished with one book, she realized it was a series, and...

If anyone needed the Gem, she was buried under ridiculous novels.

No Isabelle this week. Instead, Electroclash was standing at the front of the classroom when the students came in.

"Your regular teacher can't be here today ––" Something about 'urgent demon matters', which she wasn't going to repeat here. "–– and I can't be arsed to actually teach you anything, so, you get a movie day."

What, like she was going to sugarcoat it.

She just pressed play.

[personal profile] captainskullpoopl posting in [community profile] fandomhigh
The teacher wasn't in the classroom when class started. No, he was wandering in about five minutes later, loaded down with some convention swag.

Some might have had a little blood on it. You know. From the usual convention... cage matches.

Okay, he stole all of it. Literally all of it.

"Oh yeah, I have a class today. Sorry, I don't care about it." That was blunt. "Just bein' honest here. You know, cards on the table. Though I need to set radio straight on me wanting you kids to take this less seriously. If you're good maybe we can have a party at the end of it. If you're bad... I'm gonna pelt you with crystals. Mmkay?"

He nodded like the pact was sealed.

"Okay, I've got some slightly damaged convention exclusives to sell on E-Bay. You all stay frosty."

Oh yeah, he was gonna win teacher of the year for sure now.

Moving on, School had classes, with Archaeology looking for help, and Try Not To Die going to South Dakota which is apprently full of tacky things like stickers, plush toys, moustache wax for Anakin's boyfriend, statues, and taffy.

Something actually happened in the Dorms, though it was just Dante playing guitar. While in Town, Tony had pie for breakfast, and possibly got into a fight with Steve over it. There were 'magic' beans for sale at Turtle and Canary, while Summer found gifts for her parents at Needful Things because that always ends well. Nathan went through apologies at Covent Garden, before explaining what the flowers were for to Octavia. Torture. They're for torture, I should know. Zack had puppies for cuddling at Furnado, Kathy was playing games at Dite's, and Kitty drank coffee at Caritas.

 It was one of those totally unexpected days, where everything worked as it should at Groovy Tunes. The stereo obeyed orders. The little blue men were nowhere to be seen. The Silence was asleep in a box on the top shelf in the store room. Lucille was playing the keyboard, trying not to get suspicious. Because with things this pleasant, something bad was bound to happen.

Lucille wasn't a very trusting person, but at least she was going to enjoy playing for as long as it lasted.

Karla might live in Glacia, but she still kept tabs on Earth. So she was more than a little aggravated with politics when she arrived in Fandom for class today. They were playing dangerous games and they weren't even playing them well and that just offended Karla right down to her bones. She was half-tempted to March to DC after class was over and show them what a real ruler looked like.

"So, everything is kind of terrible today," Karla declared. "And while it was tempting to show you all how to make alcohol out of plants, I'm supposed to be some kind of role model or something. So instead, we're going to watch a very serious movie about how useful plants can be and why you should take care of them."

While snacking on roasted piñas, or agave hearts, that just happened to come with an explanation of how to make mezcal, on the off-chance that was helpful to anybody.

SHARKICANE! Because Sharknados are so 2013.

A long time ago on an island not so far away, Jeff, the God of Biscuits, really wanted to open a bakery in Fandom but he was short on the cash he needed. Naturally, he went to another, less minor, god for a loan to cover the difference.

...he chose Eshu, the Nigerian mischief god. Jeff: great at baked goods, not so great on noticing when choices will come around to bite him later. Eshu decided to lose the loan in a card game transfer the debt to a group of actual loan sharks because it'll be hilarious. He's sitting off on the sidelines with popcorn, and Fandom will get to deal with SHARKICANE: THE MORE METEOROLOGICALLY PLAUSIBLE DISASTER FOR THE EAST COAST.

Rolls right off the tongue, huh?

So how will this work?

At the beginning of the week and entirely unrelated (probably. Jeff owes some weather gods money too), a hurricane will begin to develop in the Atlantic.

On Thursday, August 3, the loan sharks will pay a visit to Jeff, and make him an offer he can't refuse: pay the interest of his loan or get eaten on Saturday. They gave him a couple days, y'know? They didn't have to do that. It's also announced that the hurricane will make landfall on Saturday, so everyone is encouraged to buy flashlights and candles, non-perishable food, and toilet paper because it's not a disaster if you haven't bought toilet paper.

On Friday, August 4, the loan sharks' enforcer sharks begin circling the island, catcalling Jeff and making generally terrible fish puns. Winds start kicking up on the island and it begins to rain. The waves on the shore get more menacing.

On Saturday, August 5, against most known rules of non-Sharknado physics, the hurricane scoops up the sharks and begins dropping them--and a ton of rain and wind--onto the island. Yes, they can crash through your house! Yes, they can swim in the lake! Yes, you can kill them with chainsaws!

...and yes, they knock out the power for all of your cuddling-in-the-dark-and-missing-air-conditioning shenanigans.

On Sunday, August 6, a group of heroic Fandomites will test an Extremely Good Theory of Hurricane Dissipation. Namely, dropping a huge ice cube (or a few dozen frozen sharks…) into the eye of the hurricane. Is this a terrible idea? Very likely! Has this ever stopped anyone on this island? NOPE. While our heroes/heroines are doing this, the winds are still blowing, the rain is still coming down, and the sharks are still eating NPCs you don't like and wreaking havoc on the teal deer and alot populations.

What do we need from you?

--We need nerdy volunteers to discover the theory that giant ice cubes can destroy hurricanes, and volunteers to fly into a shark-ladened hurricane and chuck frozen sharks into it. We also need people who can figure out how to freeze sharks.

--We need business owners/homeowners to volunteer their places up for storm/shark damage.

--We need at least one person to kill a shark with a chainsaw.

So! Questions, comments, amazing fish puns?
