Elemental History
A building outside made of bulletproof glass is your classroom to learn about the Elemental History. Inside are cushions on the ground, in equal rows and columns. Her the Complete is your teacher, it is the first class of the day.

Re: Elemental History
Pointedly ignoring the woman as she walked to the front of the lectern, Roy's attention was focused entirely on the pillows arranged around the floor. He set about gathering as many of the pillows as he could quickly grab together and piling them in to one larger bed and flopping down on top of them like a cross between a throne and a sitting couch. lounging almost gleefully in the soft fluffiness of his newly claimed territory.

"I dub thee 'Fort Roy'" He announced proudly to himself as he began to work on fashioning the pillows into something more comfortable, jealously guarding his pillows and cushions.

Re: Elemental History
-->From: School Grounds-->

Upon entering the classroom, Jun took a few steps past the threshhold without actually taking in the layout of the room.  When he finally did so, he stopped in his tracks, an expression of surprise overtaking his normally disinterested face.  "Haaah~?"  This wasn't his first time going to school, so he'd been expecting a typical learning environment with desks and notes and whatnot.  Seeing now that he was quite mistaken, Jun couldn't help but be a little off-balance.  Coushins?  A glass room?  Just what kind of History class was this supposed to be?

As he stood dumbfounded, he noticed one of the other students suddenly grabbing pillows left and right, putting them in a giant pile for him to lounge on, and suddenly Jun realized why this sort of setup was probably not the smartest.  Already getting irritated with how this first day was going, Jun moved to the back of the room and plopped down on a cushion, leaning his back against the glass wall behind him.

Re: Elemental History
Tamachi entered the building and was reasonably confused. He saw a student gathering up all the pillows and that the room was full of not glass. He knew what glass felt like, this wasn't it. He could feel his element running throughout the glass. He walked over to touch the glass and as he did so it started to bend softly to him. He quickly decided this was a poor idea and went to sit near the boy in the fort. He grabbed 2 additional pillows on his way and stacked them up high.

"Watchtower Tamachi reports an all clear to fort roy. He said, softly laughing as he did so, as he sat upon his "Watchtower".

Re: Elemental History
Simon walked in and stood near the door looking the place over.  The light in the room seemed to flicker for a moment.  He looked down to find an extra large pillow, dark purple in color, and covered in a soft faux fur.  He picked it up by the corner and dragged it to the back of the room.  He placed it up against the glass wall a few feet from the white-haired boy, Jun.  He sat and set a small bundle of charcoal pencils on the floor next to him.  He looked at the white-haired boy, then to the front of the room.  He did this three times before finally losing himself in the shifting shadows created by Roy's makeshift throne.  He snapped out of it only long enough to readjust the over-sized blouse he wore that was slipping off one of his shoulders.

Re: Elemental History
Seamus rushed into the huge, open-looking room. He slowed gradually, looking up at the ceiling. "Whoa, it looks even cooler on the inside!" he stated in facination. Looking over to Aileen to see what she thought, he slowly realized that he still held her hand. "Oops," he said, releasing it, a slight embarrassed chuckle in his voice, "Sorry about that. You alright?"

Re: Elemental History
Ash's first realization upon entering the glass room was that she was the youngest person present... and also the smallest. Most of the other kids were acting rather rambunctious, collecting pillows and poking the glass and making all sorts of noise. Preferring her peace, she grabbed a small, round pillow and placed it near the wall, sitting down and simply observing her classmates.

"I wonder if any of them already have formal training," she mused, reaching into the pouch at her back and pulling out three metal balls the size of limes. As she watched her soon-to-be peers she absently rolled the balls around on her right hand, without using her fingers, letting the metal soften and bend and then regain firmness. She alternated between letting them play on her palm and the back of her hand, practicing her fine control of the metal in her hand. Already she could barely contain her eagerness to learn more.

Re: Elemental History
As the students filed in after her, Cassandra set her satchel down on the floor against the wall, on a short wooden platform. It seemed this mini stage was the replacement of a desk for the teacher as the pillows were a replacement for desks for the students. Cassandra turned in time to see a boy gather several pillows in to a pile and make a 'fort' while another student made a 'watchtower'. She laughed watching the boys, before noticing Jun's confused expression. She smiled apologetically towards him, realizing that the other boys' behaviors probably were irritating him and he most likely blamed the set up of the room. "Alright boys, let's stop wrecking the room and set the extra cushions back in their nice neat rows." Her word choice may have been a set that you would use for talking to small children, but her tone of voice was appropriate for high school students. Hm, interesting group so far. We have a Plastic bender, from the looks of it, given that boy gently bent our fine walls. She smiles softly thinking about how Tamachi had displayed his power without showing it off. She tried not to watch the young Darkness Primary she had seen earlier, though her eyes kept flitting over his direction.

When Seamus entered the room dragging a girl behind him by the hand, Cassandra laughed. "Ah, I always looked forward to the day you would get to take my class." She smiled fondly, playfulness in her voice and sincerity in her words. After she spoke to Seamus, she noticed a young, smaller girl enter the space, and she also chose to sit alone. Cassandra watched her long enough to see the display of her power. We are getting quite the Metal Primary turn out this year. She thought with an interested expression on her face.

Re: Elemental History
-> From School Grounds

Aileen finally came to a stop within the large room that was designated for Elemental History, as Seamus was also interested in the room and chose to come to a halt. Slightly out of breath, the girl cast him an half-amused, half-annoyed look, before grasping her wrist with her other hand. "Please do speak your intentions before you act next time, alright?", she said, a subtle smile threatening to appear.

Glancing around and noticing the pillow forts, a chuckle escaped Aileen's lips. "It would seem that for our friends, the most intriguing part of this room is the collection of pillows..." As she spoke, Lilith landed on the girl's left shoulder, before letting out a caw. "Now... where should we sit?", Aileen posed her question, aimed both to Seamus and Lilith.

Re: Elemental History
Reika skipped into the classroom.  She could tell it was once neatly organized, but that chaos took to the cushions.  The Complete stood at the front and slowly brought the room back to balance.  A girl she hadn't noticed before looked closer to her age and was forming a few metal balls.  Reika decided that she would introduce herself later.  All of the "new" made her slightly overwhelmed, but somehow in a positive way.

She took a seat at a cushion at the front of the room toward the right, crossed her legs, and tried to center herself before class began.

Re: Elemental History
Seamus smiled and waved to the Complete when she addressed him. "Hey, Complete!" he greeted with a chuckle.
Then Seamus glanced about, noticing the structures. "Hm," he began, directing it to Aileen, "Let's sit by the huge fort, shall we?" He motioned to the offered location.

Re: Elemental History
From: School Grounds

Upon arrival Kazuya silently scanned the room through the glass as he moved towards the entrance into the room, taking note of the other students and their actions. 'So we are sitting on pillows huh..' he thought, slightly surprised by the unique setup. Though, unlike for a few other students, who have claimed several pillows as their own, it was nothing he was not used to, since he came from a quite traditional family. However, he didn't really mind their behavior, as they seemed to be type of people, who would make the time here quite interesting.

Aside from the pillow pillagers, he took note of the two girls, who seemed a few years younger than the rest of them. He would have expected them to sit closer to each other, but since he didn't know either of them that was simply a judgement based on looks. Then there were the two students, who had yet to decide a seating position. That was nothing special of course, but.. ' That girl and her raven... She seems familiar.. Have we met before? ' the blonde silently thought, but decided to let it go, since this was neither the time nor the place for it. He could simply ask her later.

With both his mind and body moving to class, his eyes turned to look at his new teacher, whose unique appearance easily gave away who she truly was. Now, seeing her from up close he spotted the little flames in her eyes, something he could not remember ever seeing before. With this kind of set up class was bound to get interesting. Even if he was wrong, there were enough pillows to take a nap in comfort.

As he entered the room, he glanced at Amelia behind him, wondering where she wanted to sit. They could move into the back of them room, joining the more peaceful section where a familiar white haired boy was also sitting or they could sit directly at the front, that being the closest position to the Complete. " Where do you want to sit?" Kazuya asked, deciding to voice his thoughts as he gestured at the cushions to make sure she understood what he meant. Personally, he preferred the front to avoid falling asleep too easily, but he would let Amelia make the decision.

Re: Elemental History
Amelia once again seemed to keep her eyes solely on Kazuya, holding her gown as she had earlier. She doesn't seem to notice anything about the people or the room, and almost jumps startled when Kazuya speaks. Seeing his gesture, she looked towards the front and back of the room. At the front stood the Complete, and she seemed momentarily comforted, before realizing she would be in everyone's view, and she drew her breath in sharply and looked quickly to the back of the room. There she saw Jun, but then, she feared she would embarrass him. She looked from the front of the room to the back several times before a small nervous sound escapes her as she starts to back away towards the door.

Re: Elemental History
"Very well. As long as don't get a pillow to the face I'm quite alright with that.", the young woman spoke with a smile.

Aileen took one of the pillows that were close to the fort, yet not within it, and then placed it on the ground, before sitting on top of it. Lilith then hopped from her shoulder onto her lap, as the latter was much more comfortable.

As Aileen began petting the crow, she noticed the Complete and smiled, as she thought that she was truly beautiful. She wondered what it would be like to be a Complete, but she did not wish to experience such a thing. Her calling was towards Light and Dark alone.

Re: Elemental History
Ash openly observed every person in the room, pausing her scanning whenever a new body appeared in the doorway to examine the newcomer thoroughly. As she watched the others, she saw similar gazes coming back her way. Everybody was observing everybody else, taking stock of each other and trying to gauge where they fit. Whenever her eyes met theirs she bowed her head slightly, acknowledging them but not moving to open dialogue.

However, when her eyes caught those of the Complete weighing her, she felt a shiver run up her spine and had to consciously keep from swallowing. She couldn't help but wonder what the woman's eyes saw... such a connection to the world around was nearly inconceivable. Still, she kept her cool enough to give a slightly deeper nod to the teacher.

Yet even with the presence of the Complete, it was the girl with the raven that held her attention the longest. For a short time, she tried to determine if the bird were a natural animal, or a manifestation of her ability. After a few moments, she decided it was a natural raven and her curiosity toward it faded, shifting focus to the other girl her age. When she saw the other girl observing her, she gave a small smile and a wave.

As more and more older students made their way in, she unconsciously turned the three balls into a single length that coiled around her forearm like a snake, until it solidified into an armlet. It was her favorite way to keep the metal close to hand without needing it in her hand, and the weight of it was comforting to her when she felt stressed.

Re: Elemental History
"Awwwwww, fiiiiine" Roy grumbled as the complete chastised him. He knew it wasnt undeserved though, so he began to stand up and move pillows out from his masterpiece without further complaint. Smiling apologetically to Tamachi who he had gotten in trouble by association. When Seamus and Aileen moved near him however, an idea struck Roy. Deviously smiling, he began to take some of the pillows hand handed them over to Seamus for the two of them, and when they sat, added more to bridge the gap between his seat, Tamachi's, theirs and anyone who came near.

"I re-dub they Unda City" He whispered quietly as he lovingly tapped the three pillows he had not given away and kept for himself.

Roy looked around at the gathering students. Many he had seen at the fountain earlier, but several more came in as well. A tall, refined one who almost seemed to be trying to hide the fact they were well groomed accompanied by a girl who obviously had no concept of social situations and was desperately trying to fake it. And failing, based on her nervous glances. Roy felt bad and started to stand up to help before stopping himself.

More people coming up to her is probably the last thing she needs. He sat back down, reasoning that he'd introduce himself later when she had calmed. Roy turned his attention to the others, a young girl who was spinning metal orbs around like he liked to with the water and, wait.. did that turn in to a wrist band!? Neat! This class was going to be fair interesting if it keeps going this way!

Re: Elemental History
Kazuya silently watched Amelia turn her head from site to site as she seemingly made her decision. However, when he heard a unique sound escape her lips, which was followed by a sign of retreat, he decided to take action after all. By waving his hand in front of her eyes, he tried to get her attention back on himself. "Calm down and take a deep breath. They aren't going to bite you." he said, waiting for her to do as he instructed, before he would continue. " Let's sit down over there."

If listened to, he would lead her towards a pillow located at the front center. Aside from him preferring to sit closer to the front, it seemed to be the best spot for Amelia to be taught. It was seemingly the closest spot to the Complete, giving her a easier time to keep an eye on the white haired girl, who would probably feel a little more comfortable in her presence. Besides, it would be the fastest way to make Amelia get used to being around other people.

Kazuya himself would decide to take the seat positioned behind her. He wasn't exactly a wall, but being easily one head taller than the thin girl would hopefully take a portion of the fear of being watched away. With the lack of desks he would also be close enough to watch out for her. Though, whether they actually did sit down there or not, still depended on Amelia's reaction.

Re: Elemental History
Amelia flinched and gasped in a scared way when Kazuya waved his hand in front of her face. She took another step away from him before hearing his words and turning her eyes to just his face. She listened to his words and took a deep breath. She holds her gown tightly in both hands, but she stops backing away. She listens to what he has to say next, and tilts her head as she looks to where he is suggesting where they should sit.

Hesitantly, she follows Kazuya to the front of the room, shivering nervously as she does so. He seemed to wait for her to sit first, so she sat slowly on the center pillow in the first row. Sensing Kazuya sit behind her, she stopped shivering and looked up towards the Complete. She then closed her eyes, and her expression turns to one of someone who is trying to picture a happy place.

Re: Elemental History
Though he'd caught The Complete's apologetic smile when he'd first entered, Jun had already resigned himself to fording his way through the class, so he responded with a simple shrug as he moved to take his seat.  He was well on his way to trying to shut out the antics of the other students when he noticed someone taking a seat near him, and he took a glance out of sheer habit.  When his eyes found their way to Simon, they widened slightly in surprised recognition; he'd thought that identifying the Dark Primary would have been harder, but he fit The Complete's description to a 'T'.  As if the dark hair and gloomy expression weren't enough, the woman's blouse he was wearing was a dead give away.

He was tempted to say something right away, but figured that it might be a bit too forward to speak to him right at the beginning of class.  Besides, he'd sat at the back for the express purpose of avoiding any unnecessary conversations.  Turning back towards the front of the class as nonchalantly as he could, Jun's gaze found the door just in time for Amelia to follow Kazuya inside.  He watched her idly, at first, but a frown grew on his face when he saw her balk and begin backing towards the door.  It hadn't occured to him that she would have problems with crowds, but in retrospect it probably should have.  She was already so soft-spoken, all this racket was probably overwhelming.  He was halfway to his feet when Kazuya noticed and coaxed her back inside, getting her to take a seat near the front of the class.

Since she was seated, Jun saw no point in getting up anymore, so he fell back down onto his cushion.  The frown didn't abate, however.  In fact, it seemed even more broody, and his gaze ended up fixed on Kazuya's back since the tall boy blocked his line of sight with Amelia.  Jun swallowed hard, unsure of just why he was irritated.  He closed his eyes let out a harsh breath that seemed to recoil and breeze through his hair, sending his locks into a frenzy as he tried to cool himself off.  I'll have to get a handle on Blondey at some point.  The thought caught him off guard, completely unbidden as it was.  He flopped back against the glass, rolling his head back to look at the ceiling.  Haah?  What am I thinking, its none of my business who she hangs out with.  Though I wonder where she even met him.  She probably met him in woods.  Alone...He's pretty tall too.  And handsome.  He sat back up straight, his eyes boring into the back of Kazuya's skull like lasers.  Suspicious!  Way too suspicious!  It seemed even Jun's attempts to remain detached were no match for his overactive imagination.

Seamus sat next to Aileen, smiling obliviously as he rummaged through his bag. He pulled up some paper and a couple fountain pens. He floated the pens in an orbit around his hand before plucking one to write with for the day. "Hey Complete! When are we starting?!"

Re: Elemental History
The Complete smiled at Seamus when he waved at her, enjoying his positive attitude. When the Metal Primary girl bowed her head to her, she smiled reassuringly to her, sensing her chill. She watched Roy "put things back to order", seeing how he kept some to himself still. She shook her head, smiling, and left it be. What harm was he causing?

She looked towards the door when she noticed Kazuya enter the room with Amelia following him. She watched Amelia's reaction to the new environment, frowning sympathetically. She listens to how Kazuya interacts with her and watches her reactions. She looks as though she is about to go to Amelia as she starts to panic, but relaxes and stays where she is when she sees that Kazuya calms her down, and smiles gently at Amelia when she sits down. She looks to Kazuya and mouths "thank you" to him, a grateful expression on her face.

When she looked up next, she saw Jun staring at the back of Kazuya's head with a burning suspicious glare in his eyes. She left him be for now, but wondered what he thought was happening between Kazuya and Amelia, and why it meant so much to the usually disinterested boy.

Finally, feeling that class had been going on long enough without direction, she spoke to the whole class. "Good morning, everyone!" She said cheerily. She gave Seamus a gentle warning glance, but still smiled at his excitement. "Now, if everyone is ready." She replied.

Re: Elemental History
As Roy turned his attention away from the cushions and focused on the Complete, he grew a bit flustered. Her appearance had cowed him before, but now that he was under the full gaze of it, he began to rethink his previous statements. Maybe elemental history isnt going to be as easy as I'd figured... he thought to himself.  Roy smiled as she greeted the class and settled in to the pillows as she began, curious as to what she would start the first lessen with.

Re: Elemental History
Kazuya let his bag slip from his shoulder as he watched Amelia for a bit, feeling glad when he noticed her stop shivering. The first step was always the hardest, but she would eventually get used to it as she visits class more often. His gaze raised upwards, meeting with the eyes of the Complete. Thanks to his perceptive eyes taking note of every facial movement, combined with his awesome lip reading skills, he could easily tell what she wanted to say without voicing it out loud. He was practically reading her mind! Okay, he was nowhere near that impressive, but he could still pretty much guess the gist of the message she was conveying at which he responded with a simple nod.

He then sat back into a slightly more comfortable position, which for some reason didn't help at all. Something felt off... It felt like someone was watching him, or rather trying to stare hard enough to look into his soul or maybe even make it leave his body. One of the two.  He couldn't really think of any reason why anyone would do that though. After all, he had not drawn any more attention than anybody else, nothing was on fire and there was definitely no squirrel sitting on top of his head this time. He was pretty sure a certain raven would have let him know, if that would have been the case.

So, with no real reason coming to his mind, he decided to disregard it as his imagination, which most likely resulted from his current position. He wouldn't be too surprised, if the constant training in the dojo and the ambushes from his sister has sharpened his senses to the point of paranoia. Though, with the class seemingly beginning, Kazuya decided to focus his attention on the more important things like he had instructed Amelia before and ignored what was happening behind him for now, paying close attention to the Complete instead.

Re: Elemental History
Aileen chuckled as she saw Roy hand the pillows around, still keeping a few for himself. "You're quite fond of these pillows, aren't you? Well then, lord of Unda City, might I humbly request that I gain passage to your city?" With that, she pointed towards one of the pillows between hers and Roy's, making it clear that she simply wanted another pillow. Since they were allowed to sit on pillows instead of chairs and the sort, she figured it would not bother anyone if she sat on her belly during the class.

Making sure not to harm Lilith or bother anyone with her feet, Aileen proceeded to lay on her stomach, with her feet close to one another in order to avoid having anyone tempted to look up her dress. She then placed her pillows under her head for support, before opening her bag and procuring a notebook with a pen. Once she was done, she simply nodded towards the Complete, in order to show that she was ready. As she did so, Lilith jumped on her back and stood there patiently and quietly, as the bird had figured out by the dwindling conversations that this was not the time for it to caw.

Re: Elemental History
Roy passed Aileen a couple of the pillows he had moved around for her to sprawl on. "Comfy is as comfy does! Permission granted!" He chimed, anyone who appreciated the amount of effort he put in to not having to exert any effort was a friend in his eyes, and with the way she took care to spread over multiple pillows and relax, Roy was more than happy to accommodate.

Roy took note of her notebook and pens and looked over to see Seamus preparing in much the same way, albeit his pens were floating. Roy did his best to not look ashamed of showing up unprepared. Forgeting lunch was bad enough, but now he was out all of the supplies too. In a moment it passed with a shrug, "Its the first day, there cant be too much thats vital to memorize. I'll be fine" he thought. With that, he settled back down on to the pillows, relaxed grin reappearing on his face.
