(So...shall I get the ball rolling? Narrowly following the story so we can get Fiyero's first day in.)
I sat beneath a tall tree on the Shiz grounds, a book in one hand and a half eaten apple in the other. I took another bite out of the apple as I flicked the page with one finger, a trick I had perfected over the years. It was quite a sunny day in Shiz and I squinted up into the light to look at the large clock over Shiz's main door. Suddenly realising I had somewhere to be, I gathered up my books into my arms, aiming my apple at a bin and narrowly missing, and marched off along Shiz's main path, not noticing the cart in the distance and the glaring sunlight.5/16/2011 #5 Report
(Hooray for me being so out of it!! *apologizes times ten*
Although I actually saw Glee this week! Didn't understand it, but that's okay!
*takes over Avaric for short period of time.. a.k.a. 1-3 posts*)
I pedaled at top speed, being careful to avoid cracks or anything else that wake Fiyero. Focused on getting him there on time, I didn't even notice the girl that was standing in the way.5/19/2011 #6 Report
(Ah, I don't mind... :D
Did you hear Glee doing For Good? It was awful.
By the way, I'm still a little rusty with RPing so bear with me.)
I glanced up from my book that I had reopened and quickly tried to dodge the oncoming cart. All my books slipped from my hands and I nearly went flying but I managed to catch myself.
"Hey!" I couldn't help but exclaim.5/20/2011 #7 Report
(I haven't heard it yet.. I heard that they were doing it. There's a hilarious picture of Lea in 7th heaven on the Gershwin stage. I'd be the one in the stretcher...
Don't worry about it!!)
I rolled my eyes and slowed the cart, stopping short when I looked at the girl. Was she.. green?? "You should really watch where you're going," I said, blinking rapidly. Maybe it was a trick of the light?5/20/2011 #8 Report
(It was on broadwayworld.com I think. With a very badly photoshopped picture of them over Kendra and Kerry's For Good picture...it's weird that I knew it was Kerry and Kendra, isn't it?)
I rushed to pick up my books as the man pulling the cart spoke. Standing up I turned to face him. "I should watch where I'm going? You crashed in to me! What are doing pulling a cart down a walking path anyway?" I sent a fierce glare at the cart while speaking and gave it a good kick when I saw that there was someone inside it. "Hey, wake up, you! Your driver nearly ran me over!"5/21/2011 #9 Report
(No.. but that was a creepy picture. *shudders*)
I widened my eyes. "Miss, do you have any idea who is in this cart??"5/21/2011 #10 Report
(*shudders at the memory*)
"I don't care who he is!" I shoved my books back into my bag and looked again at the figure in the cart. Was he...asleep? "Your driver nearly runs someone over and you're sleeping?"5/21/2011 #11 Report
(Good morning Krusty Crew!)
Hearing voices, I moaned and muttered something about 'five more minutes.'
"Please, I don't think you understand," I said quickly, stepping between her and the cart.5/21/2011 #12 Report
I glanced around the driver as the boy in the cart stirred muttering something about 'five more minutes'. "I don't understand what? That you're an idiot who shouldn't be allowed to drive or that he's a lazy moron?"5/21/2011 #13 Report
"Neither," I answered, trying to remember to be polite. It was impossible with this girl. "He," I started, gesturing behind me, "is not someone you want to wake up, and certainly not someone you want to make angry." Although I'd never seen him angry before, I could imagine it would be something slightly terrifying.5/21/2011 #14 Report
I raised an eyebrow at the driver. This was someone I didn't want to wake up or make angry? I'd seen scarier toddlers. "Well, I'm not exactly someone you want to make anrgy either," I said, trying to make a subtle hint about my powers. Damn things never worked when I wanted them to.
By now a small crowd had formed to see Shiz's resident freak (i.e. me) fight it out with the new kid (i.e. lazy moron).5/21/2011 #15 Report
"Just move along, and you won't need to get angry," I answered, subconsciously stepping closer to the cart. "Nobody will get angry, and we can all get on with our lives, okay?"5/21/2011 #16 Report
"No. I would like an apology," I said, placing my hands on my hips and taking a step closer. "Wake up!" I repeated, getting as close to the boy in the cart as I could with his driver in the way.5/21/2011 #17 Report
I groaned again, putting a hand on my forehead. "Here already?" I asked, stretching and taking off my sunglasses. My jaw must've dropped a foot when I saw who was standing at the cart. I said the first thing that came to mind: "Is it Halloween?"5/21/2011 #18 Report
My hands clenched into fists at my side. Barely opened his eyes and the boy was already making fun of me. "Not quite," I said cooly in response to both his questions. "I was nearly ran over by this idiot," I gestured to his driver, "and would like an apology."5/21/2011 #19 Report
"Oh, right. Um.. sorry you were in his way?" I asked, not quite sure what she was looking for.5/21/2011 #20 Report
Finally realising I wasn't going to be getting anywhere with this moron, I threw my hands up in the air and stormed off towards my sorcery seminar.5/21/2011 #21 Report
I shrugged and turned to Avaric, giving him our custom handshake. "I'll see you later," I said, while putting my sunglasses back in my pocket. "Chances are, I won't stay here much longer than the last one." Shiz is my last chance.. Wonder what'll happen when I fail out of this one.
*goes*5/21/2011 #22 Report
Muttering to myself, I gave the pair one last look over my shoulder. I might have guessed they'd have a handshake. Shaking my head, I walked inside the building.

(*nods happily* That was fun, though!)
I turned to face the staring crowd and gave my signature smile, trying not to laugh when somebody passed out. I waved, picking up my bag and started to wander in the direction of the main building.5/21/2011 #24 Report
(Indeed it was... :D Well, I could do Boq's bit...Or we could just go off and do whatever...unless Jen wants to do Popular or something... :D)5/21/2011 #25 Report
(Not without DTL! We should probably wait, because then Boq can go be drooly over Glinda. ;)
Besides, I kind of have to go for a little bit. Sorry! I'll be back... 12? Maybe?)5/21/2011 #26 Report
(I meant through DTL to Popular...And, yes, that'll be fun. :D
And, that's fine! Talk to you then!)5/21/2011 #27 Report
(I kind of want to do DTL. And Popular. And then we can go off and do whatever. But that's just me... :)
Okay, so I've had this tab open for 45 minutes and accomplished nothing... I'll just post, since that's what I'm here to do.)
I walked quickly down the hallway, keeping my head down. I didn't really want to talk to that munchkin at the moment... well, not ever, if that was possible. Why couldn't he tell that I just wasn't interested? And never would be?
I glanced around the hallway, biting my lip. I was almost to the courtyard, and then I could cut across to the main building... maybe I'd be able to avoid him there??

(That's fine by me!
Boq, here I come!)
Quickly spotting a flash of gold hair that belonged to none other than Shiz's sweetheart, Galinda Upland of the Upper Uplands, a smile broke out on my face. "Miss Galinda! Miss Galinda!"
I quickly ran after her.

(I'm just so used to writing research papers and such that it's affecting my creativity.)
I closed my eyes for a moment, before speeding up slightly, doing my best to pretend I hadn't heard him. And trying not to look like I was running away from him.
Even though I was.
