Her classroom is essentially a black box. The floor, walls, and ceiling are black and shiny. There is a simple crystal chandelier hanging from the ceiling. There is a jukebox in the top left corner of the room, along with three rows of chairs spanning from the bottom left corner to the jukebox.

By the time Devin had arrived in his primary, he had already wiped any starlings of tears of his face, and hoped the day would go better now. So, Devin walked into the class, and not noticing the instructor (if she's in there that is), he automatically took a seat. As he sat there, Devin moved his headphones from around his neck and put them over his ears. He turned up his music loud, listening to Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor." He waited for the instructor to come in, that is if she wasn't already in there and he just didn't notice her.

Moments after Devin takes a seat, Jeneviv enters the room. She walks to her desk, sets a box down, and looks at the boy ahead of her. She tilts her head, a thoughtful expression on her face.

With eyes closed and a gentle expression on his face, Devin's head lawled back and forth as his fingers danced across his desk, moving along with his music as if he were playing it. He hadn't noticed the teacher enter, as his eyes were closed and Bach resonated in his ears. However, after a minute or so of the odd sight, Devin opened his eyes to see the teacher staring at him with head tilted.

In an almost startled way, he sat up straight in his seat and pulled the headphones down to rest around his neck, turning off his music in the process. Only ever being taught by private instructors, Devin was used to a very formal (and rather boring) education, but at the same time, he could tell this wouldn't be the same, otherwise the teacher would be dressed in more professional attire...

"Sorry, I didn't see you there. So... You're the teacher right?" Devin had his doubts, she didn't look like any of the teachers he had ever had afterall.

Jeneviv rightens her head and leans back against her desk. "I am the teacher. You definitely seem into your ability." The statements are said quickly and simply, flowing together even though they have nothing to do with each other. She saw the boy staring at her clothes, and without looking or hesitating- "This is the female teacher uniform. Each woman has the same dress and boots, just in the color that represents their Element. Purple is sound. Lovely color, really. You should wear purple to class tomorrow and often, represent your Element." It must have sounded like she would never stop talking, especially with how fast she says everything. Her voice is the kind that says "I think I am better than you and I think I know everything."

Devin knew the sound well. Having grown up in high society, he was accustomed to people thinking they were above others. However, despite his want to say something that would probably get him in trouble, he decided to let it go. He ignored her comment about wearing purple, he wore it all the time, today just happened to be one of the rare days he didn't.

"If you're my teacher, then you must be Jeneviv Nelo. My name is Devin. Well, what now?" Devin had made sure to remember his primary's name when he was studying the bulletin board at the entrance of the school.

Devin shifted uncomfortably in his seat. "Yeahhhh.... The thing is... I can't really control my powers yet, sooo...

Devin has only known about his elemental abilities for a few months, and within that time, he had only ever used them 4 or 5 times, and it was always an accident. He never actually controlled sound, it kinda just happened. It usually happened by mere accident (like when he sneezes) or when he felt strong emotions (like anger).

Her eyebrow raises and she makes an annoyed sound. "Really. Well then. What do you expect me to say to the Complete? Could you try to do something?" She then turns to the box she brought in. "Hm..."

Devin understood her frustration as he was very frustrated with himself, but that gave her no excuse to be act as annoyed as she was. Devin's anger rose slightly, but he held it back. "It happens on accident. Isn't that what I came to this school for? To learn how to utilize my abilities?" he said in a matter-of-fact tone.

"Yes, you came to learn control, but most normal Elementals have some sort of ability to prove they are Elementals when they come to class. If you are not careful, someone might think you are a Nonelemental and you will face some real nastiness then." Her eyes had narrowed as she stepped closer and closer to the desk. She finished her words, practically inches from the boy's face.

"Then maybe. I'm. Not. Normal." there was a burning air of resent in each slow word. A soft ringing started around the room, the source was unknown as it seemed to be coming from every direction, and it was very faint. Someone that wasn't in tune with the element of Sound wouldn't even hear it, but there is no doubt Jeneviv heard it immediately. Devin didn't seem to notice it. "Could you please, back, away." Devin asked slowly, holding back any volume that wanted to increase itself.

Jeneviv's head tilts at the quiet ringing. She takes a step back, grinning. "Well well well. You are an Elemental." She seemed smug about something, as if she was not just yelled at or caused the argument in the first place. Almost as if she has "won." "Well, now that you are riled up, show me something." She keeps up the smugness as she steps back to her desk, not turning or letting her eyes off the boy.

"I already told you. I don't know how." he said still full of resent. Despite her backing away like he asked, her smugness infuriated him. And he hadn't done anything, why'd she just now start to believe him? His temper was rising.

Not actually doing it, but Devin showed the expression on his face as if he were rolling his eyes. He slouched in his chair. Sitting there quietly for a moment with his eyes closed. After a few short moments, he clapped his hands together, intending to rise the volume, but he failed. He let out a sigh, and put his head back so that it hung off the back of his chair."I don't know how. How many times do I have to say that? I don't know how to start using my powers.

OOC: Devin's main problem is that he doesn't know what to do. He can use his powers to a small extent, but he doesn't know how to start them. Kind of like jumping a car, he needs a jumpstart from another person.

Jeneviv rolled her eyes. "Ugh." She lifts her hand, emitting a sound that cannot be heard except for by Sound Elementalists dogs and bats. Slowly she makes it more audible. "Try to focus on the sound. Try to feel it as you would music. When you figure out how to make the connection, I will play something in the jukebox for you to alter."

Jeneviv didn't even have to tell him what to do, as son as she started emitting the sound, Devin narrowed in on her hand, studying it with absolute concentration. As he listened, his eyes slowly closed. He heard nothing but the note, it filled his mind. A few moments after Devin had remembered it's pitch, volume, and frequency, he spoke. "Got it." Devon waited for her to play whatever it was she wanted to from the jukebox.

She ends the sound and walks over to the jukebox, grabbing the box off her desk and taking it with her. "Name an artist." She says it without looking at him, sitting on her knees in front of the box, removing the lid and rooting through it.

In an attempt to test her knowledge, and her patience, Devin named a very peculiar artist renowned for one piece in specific, 4'33", which lacks intentional sound. "John Milton Cage Jr." He was interested to find out if she knew any of his pieces beyond the infamous 4'33".

A few short moments after the sound started playing, Devin had had enough. Her most recent comment got the best of him. His anger swelled to column-breaking heights, and he instinctively altered the sound being played before him. Slowly at first, but it soon picked up much speed as the sound was turned to the same exact pitch, volume, and frequency as the sound she had made from her hand. Then the volume increased to an ear-splitting ring, one that would make people scream out and clasp their ears in pain. One word could be heard among the annoyingly high pitched note, "UGH." It was Jeneviv's voice only turned to a higher pitch to match the note. Then the annoying sound slowly returned to the simple note she had begun playing moments ago, no longer at the extreme volume.

"That's all I hear every time you open your mouth." Devin made sure to explain his insinuating actions so that she'd be able to understand, unlike anything else he's told her so far. Devin knew he might have to face disciplinary consequences for his actions, but he didn't care. His only goal now was to upset Jeneviv as much he could. However, he also felt accomplished with how he was able to alter the sound, and he was no longer angry as much as he was smug about annoying her.

A look of pain crosses Jeneviv's face for only a moment. As soon as the sound hits uncomfortable levels, her hands raise at her sides, palms up, her eyes closed. She starts a sort of sound filter around her ears. She can hear the note and the word without actually hearing it or allowing it to reach her ears. She senses the changes, and the look that was pain seconds ago is now anger. As she hears his words, her fingers twitch just a bit, and her voice booms as though from five stadium speakers. "YOU INSOLENT BRAT!" Suddenly her eyes open, flashing daggers, and her hands swipe towards the boy, sending a sharp ringing sound towards him that would be silent to other Elementalists. She alters the perception of Sound around his ears, so the pitch would only be heard by him. Her note is just sharper than his was, and is sent directly to his ears rather than the surrounding room. She knows he will be unable to block the sound, and lets her anger take her actions over as he had done.

A smug grin escaped Devin when Jeneviv cringed in pain, but his reveling was cut short when she turned the tables on him. Devin clasped both of his ears as the ring filled them, he shouted out in pain (normal level shout), and fell to the floor from his desk. Even after the noise was done, Devin still clasped his ears, as they rung with pain. Slowly but surely, he picked himself up and got back into his desk. He sat there with a blank expression on his face for about a minute, staring at his desk as he painfully waited for the remnants of the noise to fade away. "Touché" he finally responded. Realizing he could just barely hear his own voice, no doubt because of the noise Jeneviv had sent his way, he put his headphones over his ears and pressed a small button on the side, which enabled them to work like hearing aides. "I can barely hear myself think. Sorry for my misbehavior, but in all defense I don't think splitting your student's eardrum was the best way to discipline me." Devin made sure he sounded as unthreatening as he could, he didn't want another sound wave thrown at him with the hearing aide enabled. "That was only around me wasn't it? That ringing sound. If it was just a wave someone would have rushed here by now." Devin didn't want his ears stabbed with noise again, so he made sure his question was devoid of sarcasm or annoyance. He thought it best to let the situation cool down before he was expelled, or she fired.

As Fabio walked to the class room, he conducted the air in front of him to the music in his head. Humming along in a way only he could hear. Opening the door, he greeted, "Ciao miss. Sorry I'm late. I got caught up in a few-" He then noticed the student with the fancy headphones and smiled, "Oh hello. You new here?" He made his way over to the side of Jeneviv's desk.

If Devin wasn't trying to hold back in any annoyance he still held, he would've responded with a smug "Unfortuantely." but he knew better than to actually say that out loud. So he just answered with a simple "Yeah. And you?" Devin wasn't quite sure if this was a student or not. He had a student air about him, but Devin just couldn't believe that any student would get along with Jeneviv enough to even think about standing near her. He certainly didn't want to stand near her, even the idea of her presence filled him with resent at this point. This was most definitely, a very bad first impression on both their parts, and Devin will probably never let it go if she doesn't learn how to interact with other human beings.

Jeneviv leans back against her desk once more, crossing one knee over the other, breathing slightly heavily from anger. Her long obsidian black hair is in her face, and she glares from behind the shinning stands, a dark smile on her face, gripping the desk tightly. "You can be bright. Yes, I set a Filter around your ears and that attack straight into your ears. Oh, and I accept your...pathetic, but adequate apology. Just mind me in the future." Her breathing slowly returns to normal, she fixes her hair to neatly frame her face once more, and the anger leaves her face to resume general annoyance. Hmph. This kid is not gonna last long. She goes to the jukebox and ends what is playing, as both had not heard it over the angry attack of hers.

When Fabio enters the room, Jeneviv brightens. "Oh Fabio, you made it!" She rushes back over to her desk and wraps her arms around the young man, pecking him lightly on his cheek. Not enough to be "hey we're a thing" but definitely more than "simple accident or something."

His eyes somewhat squinted to make sure he wasn't mistaking what he saw, Devin sat with a look of utter confusion on his face. Did Jeneviv just kiss a student?... I know I'm new here, but I'm pretty sure that's not allowed... he thought to himself. Devin couldn't even say anything, it was not only a very sudden thing to do, but it was just... A really weird thing to do. Well, it was easy to tell that Defin certainly isn't Jeneviv's favorite student, she made it very evident who was. Devin waited to see how the guy would react.

Fabio chuckled lightly and hugged Jeneviv in return. After a moment, he released her, feeling that an explanation was in order. "Ahem, I'm going to be miss Jeneviv's TA this year. My name is Fabio Bello." he gave a quick bow, a cheerful smile on his face. "If you need any help, just ask." He spoke with the professialism fitting for a student teacher.

Devin liked this guy much more than he liked Jeneviv. He actually acted like a teacher, imagine that. If only Jeneviv knew how to be professional and just a decent human being in general. "Yeah, I do have a question actually. I'm not good at activating my powers. Any tips?" Devin decided to divert any questions he ever had to Fabio instead of Jeneviv, in order to begin the slow process of making Fabio the permanent teacher, and hopefully end up with Jeneviv's departure from the school. "My name is Devin by the way. I look forward to being in your class, Fabio-sensei."

Jeneviv had smiled when the boys first interacted, enjoying them getting along. Slowly however, her face gains a suspicious look. Something was off about the way the boy was speaking...and intentionally not looking at her. Then, he said it, the thing she was thinking. "Excuse me, this is my class. He's here to help me help you." The tiniest bit of defensiveness is in her voice if you are looking for it.

Oh, Jeneviv was here to help Devin? Huh, she sure haz a funny way of going about it then... On the outside, Devin displayed no indication of the reveling he was doing on the inside for making her upset. But, he still wasn't willing to get blasted again, so he replied without any sarcasm, even though he wished he could. "Why of course. I'm sorry, I meant 'your guys' class."

Devin now had two reasons to attend this school: 1.) Harness the power of Sound. And 2.) make Jeneviv regret her career choice. As he sat waiting for more instruction, and hopefully no more ear blasting rings, he thought up all the ways he could upset her. He could never wear purple in her presence, he could pay more attention to Fabio than her, and he could always tell her who is mother was. That would no doubt make her get all fan-girly and very vulnerable to sweet, sweet justices in the form of a prank that would tear down her high hopes. Devin's deep thoughts about his plan to install Fabio as the new teacher left a very blank expression on his face, as he stared at the ceiling.

"Yeah, I already took the hearing exam, I'm up for a pre-test. Lay it on me." Devin casually replied. Maybe Fabio would be less violent than Jeneviv in his teaching methods. In fact, Devin's ears depended on it. And so, he stared blankly at Fabio, awaiting the pre-test he would give him. Devin took note to sit up straight and appear professionally, whereas he was in a very slouched careless posture for Jeneviv, as this was all part of his master plan... Someone intelligent might noticed, but he doubted Jeneviv would.

He twirled the fork in his fingers, positioning it near the edge of the desk. "Whenever you are ready, Devin."

Devin doubted he would be able to do anything, he still didn't quite understand how to activate his powers. However, he felt he should give it a try, not because it wouldn't hurt to do so, but because he didn't want to disappoint Fabio, his soon to be teacher. So, Devin cleared his mind for a few moments, concentrating only on what he heard. He closed his eyes, and lost focus on any smells. He was all ears now, quite literally. "Ready." Devin said, his eyes still kept shut with the utmost concentration he could muster.

He narrowed in on the sound, focusing on it and only it. He concentrated as hard as he could, trying to do somehting to the sound, anything. But after several moments of tryin' he broke concentration out of frustration. He tried again, and again, but to no avail. Frustrated, his head was propped up by his hand on his desk, as he let out a sigh. Then, it struck him. His powers hadn't been activated at random times, they'd been activated when he felt strong emotions! Of course he wasn't able to do anything to the sound by clearing his head, he needed to do the exact opposite, he needed to fill his head. So, images raced through Devin's mind. Images of Jeneviv, his grandparents, his parents, his past teachers, anything and anyone he could think of that had ever caused him to feel resentment. And with this small amount of anger, he not so much as concentrated on the sound, rather than went along with it. Instead of going against it with a clear head, it just altered its course with his emotions, causing to the note to go into the key of B major. Satisfied, he grinned, looking up to Fabio, "I did it! And it wasn't an accident!" While it was a very small use of his powers, it was the first time he had ever intentionally used them instead of subconsciously. Not even his hate for Jeneviv could ruin his moment of glory, he looked at the two of them grinning, reveling in his success.

Remember there is always room for improvement." He then notice Jeneviv nod off so he figured he should begin the lesson himself. "Ok, first we'll talk about what sound really is. then I'll go over different means of manipulation. And finally, if we have time, I'll show you my own demonstration. Sound good?" As he was talking, he Made his way to the board, plucking up a piece of chalk.

Devin seen what he did there. "Sound good?" *ba-dum-tss*

"Yeah, sounds perfect." Devin payed close attention, especially interested in learning the different forms of manipulation. Seeing as how sound wasn't physical manipulation like a lot of other elements, it was bound to have some interesting techniques. And Devin wanted to master all of them. If he was a sound elementalist, he wanted to be the best sound elementalist, even better than the Complete. Devin watched intently, awaiting the lesson.

Fabio nodded and began drawing a frequency graph that gradually got smaller and smaller. "Sound is very complicated to describe. No one knows exactly what it is made of, but only that it comes in waves, like this." He pointed to the graph. "You may want to take notes. I'm not gonna go too in depth today, but there is still plenty to cover."

"Hai." Devin got out a very small notepad he kept in his pocket, and slipped a small pen out of the side of it. He flipped it open to the first page, and began scrawling across the lined paper. He had a very unique form of note taking, that included bo musical symbols, and symbols he created himself to represent long words. He felt confident that he'd fit anything they covered today on just this one page.

Devin didn't look up to show he was done, but his pen stopped moving, showing he was ready to keep going. Devin took notes very fast, so they shouldn't have to pause many times, and by the speed he wrote what little Fabio had already said, it was obvious that he wrote very fast.

As soon as he felt he was ready to continue, Fabio took a breath. "Very well. Sound is measured in decibels, amps, and pitch. As you can see, pitch is dependent on the frequency of the waves. The higher the frequency, the higher the pitch." He paused a moment to let the information sink in and to also catch his breath. "We humans can only pick up a certain range of frequencies, and can handle a limited amount of decibels before our hearing is lost. For example, if you were to stand close to a firework as it was going off, your ears would most likely be ringing severely afterwards." Fabio looked up to the clock and decided they should move on. "Any questions, so far?"

 "Seems pretty straightforward. So what are we doing when we mess with sound? Changing the waves or something?" Since Devin was taught by private instructors up until now, he had some say in the classes he took. Science was one of the classes he opted out of. Still, he was fairly bright, so he could use common sense to try and figure out things he didn't understand.

Even though Devin always had to put up with boring private instructors, he loved learning. He was very curious, and always wanted to know something how or why somehting happened. As long as that something interested him of course. Science = not interesting in Devin's eyes.

"Precisely." Fabio replied with a smile, glad that his student actually seemed invested, "By manipulating these waves, we can change how they are received by the ear. There are many different ways you can utilize this. If you want quiet, you can create a counter wave to block sound. If you want to stun someone, you can create a shock to their senses. Also, when you are advanced enough, you can make one thing sound like a completely different thing.". Fabio hoped he was being clear enough while explaining the uses for this power. He couldn't help but think back to his own first day of primary. Just barely able to hold the pitch on the pre-test. This kid kind of reminded Fabio of himself, in a way.

"Is it possible to redirect waves?" Devin asked, he was already devising a plan for future use if ever needed. Sound ruled his life, and we wanted to know and master every aspect of it. He also made sure to take great note of their ability to stun people, it will no doubt be a powerful technique to use if he ever got into the kind of trouble you have to fight out of.

While Fabio spoke, Devin's pen flitted across his small notepad, and simultaneously keeping a separate list of techniques he was thinking of.

"Yes, I believe it is possible. Especially if you generate the sound yourself." Fabio replied, "There have been many times during combat training that sound saved my skin." He felt it was time for a story. "When I was just starting out, I could barely muster a squeak. But when Jeneviv taught me how to manipulate ambient sound, I could confuse, repel, and even make people faint!" He began talking feverantly, laughing at the end of his last comment, "It feels amazing, but you have to be careful with it so you don't actually hurt anyone. Devin, the moment you can make a song on the radio sound like you are center stage of a live concert, you will definitely understand." His eyes were lit with excitement. "I think we have time for a quick demo, don't you think?"

Devin listened with awe as Fabio spoke. The things they could accomplish with their powers were nothing less than amazing. They had powers over people's minds, something not many other elements can do. Devin thought of all the possibilities. He could drive people to insanity if he wanted to, and all he would have to do is make a continuous clicking noise that only they could hear. He could appeal to entire masses of people by supporting to each one of their beliefs individually, while addressing them all at once. He could potentially create illusions strong enough to destroy an entire nation.

Devin would never do those things of course, he wasn't evil, his thoughts just wondered. Even though he was lost in his thoughts of the powers of sound, when Fabio mentioned a demonstration, Devin was instantly pulled out of his internal monologue. He payed close attention, interested to see what Fabio had to show him. "As long as it doesn't hurt my ears, I'd love a demonstration." Devin said with a grin on his face, eager to witness whatever Fabio had planned.

Fabio clapped his hands together and cleared his throat. "Ok, pay attention now." Not that he doubted he would. He straightened his posture slightly, put his fingers to his throat and began to hum. Gradually, he willed the sound to become warmer and slightly metallic. Soon, he moved his fingers lower and another continously note vibrated underneath the first. After that, two more notes joined in, producing a classic c-major chord. Then, after about a minute of maintaining, he stopped. Sighing and closing his eyes, he seemed to relax. "Phew, it's been a while since I've done that."

"That. Was awesome." while Devin was impressed with Fabio's demonstration, it also got him to thinking... What if his mother was just a sound elementalist that modified her voice? Does she still deserve the same praise for her abilities? Devin began looking at his mother in a whole different way, and not a particularly good one at that. If she was a sound elementalist, why didn't she teach him herself?

So, even though Devin was fascinated by Fabio's technique, he was also conflicted. He began getting distracted, and started thinking of all the neglect he always faced at home. He tried clearing his head, he didn't want these negative thoughts right now. "How long until I can do that!?" Devin quickly asked, trying to shake off any unease.

Fabio pondered that for a moment. "Well first, you need to have some form of control." he answered thoughtfully, "I remember it took me months to perfect." He smiled optimistically and cleared the board. "But I have a feeling you will reach that level quickly."

Jeneviv smiles, watching Fabio, allowing him to take over for his first day. Suddenly she frowns, noticing the difference in Devin's attention and respect. Ugh, that insolent brat! She pouts to herself as she watches, glaring at the student.

A small, one sided grin peaked out on Devin's face. It just barely hinted at his satisfaction of annoying Jeneviv as he had noticed her beaming at him just now, rather than staring googly-eyed at Fabio. "I appreciate the encouragement." Devin responded politely.

 On the outside, he looked very much the same as he had been, in the inside, he was chuckling to himself. He found it quite funny that Fabuo spoke about needing some form of control, when his teacher Jeneviv has yet to show much of it... "So," Devin spoke after a slight pause. "what now?"

Fabio glanced over to the clock and then to Jeneviv. It seemed that they covered everything so quickly. He seemed deep in thought in order to figure out what to do next. "Perhaps, a little practice wouldn't hurt, right?" he half asked Jeneviv and himself.

Jeneviv turned her attention back to Fabio, and gave him a cute smile. "You're doing so great for your first day, if you want to test him some more or show him some neat exercises it would be fine." Her voice is sickeningly sweet towards Fabio, as if to use the same methods as Devin. Or as if she is too stupid to come up with a better method of revenge.
