Slowly, So Slowly A muffled cry took Zander from his book. He looked around wildly, and was on his feet in an instant when he heard a louder scream. A scream that sounded like his name. A scream that came from Aida's cabin. Maybe it wasn't practical for him to go to her, when Sky and Jace were both nearer, but he had never before been practical when Aida was concerned. He was out on the deck in a flash, the light in his cabin still on and the door swinging on its hinges because he didn't bother to shut it. Nothing in there held higher value to him than Aida's wellbeing.Slowly, So Slowly1 year ago in Personal More Like This
No one else had gone to her cabin. He rapped quickly on the door, praying something terrible hadn't happened.
"Aida?" he said hesitantly. "Did you just call me?"
She muttered something to herself from the inside, and then padded on bare feet—shoes made a very different sound—to throw her door open. Her eyes when they looked up at him were stra
Ascension 2, Sec 1 Welcome to Hell. Population, me.Ascension 2, Sec 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
Days. Weeks. Months. How long had it been? I didn't know anymore. When your nightmares were all the same, when every day involved the same horrible, useless task, time became…irrelevant. My hands were still scarred from shifting away the rubble of a ruined castle, searching for something, anything, that would tell me she was alive. That against all logic, she wasn't dead. In all that time, I was alone. Tillie, Sky and Jace all searched at my side, but I was by myself. Nobody could reach me past the wall I'd constructed around myself, the wall that had been put up to keep me from burning everything in a ten-mile radius. Those scars on my hands, those earned while searching in vain for her, I refused to heal. I wanted to forget, but at the same time, I wanted to remember. I wanted to remind myself everyday of how I had failed myself, and how I had failed her.
Ascension 2, Sec 5 "AIDA!" I all but screamed. "NO!"Ascension 2, Sec 51 year ago in Personal More Like This
I stumbled over the ground, trying to run to her despite the violently shaking floor. My heart was in my throat. No. No. It couldn't happen again. It couldn't. I wouldn't let her leave me again. I didn't think I could bear that agony a second time.
"Not this time!" I shouted at her. "I won't let you go this time!"
I reached out and pulled her to me—it was easy, with her floating in the air—holding her tightly to my chest. My hands slid up to cradle her cheeks, and I guided her face to mine.
"Please, no…" I whispered, my terror plain in my voice. "Please…I'm sorry for getting mad at you. I'm sorry…I'm so sorry…"
A single tear slid down Aida's pale cheek.
"Zander…" she murmured, her voice thick with fear. She didn't want to die. I didn't want her to go. This couldn't happen again. "I love

This wasn’t the time or place. It really wasn’t, which meant that I really needed to get out of there before she made me forget that.
“Sky is right,” I told her, carefully guiding her back. “You should go to sleep. Tomorrow will be a long day.”
“You know…” she said, voice low as she resisted. “We don’t have to sleep.”
“Aida…” I said quietly.
“What’s wrong Zander?” she said with a teasing smirk. But her voice trembled just slightly. “Are you scared? Or is this one of those moments where you say ‘I’m scared of hurting you’ and I call you out on your bullshit?”
I took a deep breath and pulled away from her, rising to my feet and looking her stra
Ascension 3, 3 When I woke, it was still dark outside. I didn’t have to wonder long about what brought me from my sleep, because my eyes immediately found the black-clothed figure standing at my bedside, watching me cautiously. I leapt up and he hastily backed away, raising his hands to show that he meant no harm.Ascension 3, 36 months ago in Personal More Like This
“I was sent to wake you and Tillie,” said the Eagle, eyeing the fire in my hands.
I frowned and straightened up. “Why?”
“It’s the noble,” he said. “Something happened…”
“What?” I demanded, my heart siezing. “What’s happened to her?”
“Huh? Nothing,” the Eagle answered. “One of her old...friends...the king has him.”
I probably shouldn’t have felt as relieved as I did at hearing that one of Aida’s f
Ascension 3, 9 I’d like to say that we were given the chance to wake up slowly and peacefully, wrapped in each others’ arms while the sun peaked shyly through the slit of the tent to creep along the ground toward us, but that wasn’t what happened. We were woken abruptly by a loud commotion in the campsite after the sun had just barely risen, and the first shout either of us could recognize was none other than Sky. I will say this much; we did wake up nestled together, her back against my chest with my arms caught around her waist in such a fashion that one arm was under her body and incredibly numb.Ascension 3, 95 months ago in Personal More Like This
“How dare you show your face here! This is all your fault!”
Aida groaned and sat up, my arms slipping away from her as she rubbed her eyes. I followed suit, running a hand through my dishevled hair and wondering what the hell was the cause of so muhc noise so early in the morning.
Ascension 3, 11 Adeshia was amazing. The high sandstone buildings that seemed to have been carved out of the ground rose on either side of the narrow cobblestone streets, casting pretty much perpetual and blissful shade over every pathway. Where the roads were wide enough to allow sunlight down, stalls were erected to sell merchandise and the entire walkway was teeming with busybodies in need of materials or food or pillows. I nearly tripped over a pair of small children as they scurried around people’s feet, shouting and laughing as they went.Ascension 3, 114 months ago in Personal More Like This
Diego led us right past all of these stalls at a brisk pace, not even allowing us to stop and look around. The deeper we moved into the city, the more people there seemed to be. We passed a clinic at one point, but there were few citizens in need of medicine it would seem. No, we didn’t stop until we reached a somewhat narrow alley, well-shaded and less occupied, in which a door stood in one wall with
Ascension 3, 7 As I came out of the tent, I nearly ran into Sky and Tillie, who were in the middle of a solemn discussion.Ascension 3, 75 months ago in Personal More Like This
“Should we even tell her about Diego?” the dwarf asked, glancing to the tent despite the fact that the flap had fallen shut behind me, hiding Aida from sight.
“Not right now,” said Sky reluctantly. “Plus, we still don’t know what he is up to.”
“You have to admit, Sky: fleeing right after hearing about Aida’s capture doesn’t sound too good,” said Tillie. Personally I agreed, but I was not part of this conversation, so I didn’t add my two cents in.
“He’d better have a damn good reason,” Sky growled. “Or I will--”
Kiss him into submission? I wondered as a joke, though I was more irritated with her indecisiveness than amused. At that moment,
Ascension 3, 15 “Jace! Get them off of me!”Ascension 3, 154 months ago in Personal More Like This
“Leave the girl alive,” said a noble man. “Synius needs her.”
“Got it Gorgeous!” Jace bellowed, cutting through the nobles like they were made of paper. They were burning like it.
“A little help here!” called Sky, her voice barely audible over the crackling of her magic. A burst of energy arced out from her glove and she grinned. “Never mind, I got this!”
“Move!” ordered another noble.
“I don’t think so,” Tillie laughed.
My friends enjoyed fighting just a little too much sometimes.
“A group of soldiers just entered the city! The King is with them, Aida!” Kole shouted.
“Dammit!” she snarled. “Get some off my back! I
Ascension 3, 6 The next day brought no wind and with it the best news I’d received yet. One of the sailors had spotted a messenger hawk heading toward the ship, and minutes later it had landed in the crow’s nest to make its delivery. Aida had been rescued from the dungeons of the palace with the help of a group Kole called the Daga-ken and was now recovering in their camp, situated in the forests bordering Aelvale, one of Northcliff’s neighbors. I could have whooped for joy at the news, but Sky was not so glad, too determined to find something wrong with the situation even now, and was griping insistently about these strangers and their supposed “help”. However, nobody else paid her too much worry on the grounds that they were as thrilled as I was just to hear that Aida was alive and out of harm’s reach for the time being.Ascension 3, 65 months ago in Personal More Like This

I've wanted to tell you the truth for some time now. I want to tell you how I feel, and why I am how I am. I would tell you in person, but I can't muster the strength. So this letter will have to do. This is my side of the story.
At first, I thought it was just brotherly love, or admiration. I always wanted to be with you, and I couldn't stand it when I wasn't. When I got a little older, I realized that it was more than admiration. I saw I had a crush on you. It was sorta like how kids have crushes on their teachers. I thought it would just be a phase, that I would get over it. But as I grew up, my feelings only strengthened. These feelings didn't go away, and it scared me. I wanted to be more than just your brother. I loved you, but I saw I could never be with you. Unless we split. That was when I decided to leave. I didn't revolt to hurt you, or to make you less. I did it because I loved you too much. I had to stop being your brother, so I could have a chanc

Please make sure to read everything. This class system is really quite simple, so don't let the long journal bring you down.
5 mandatory classes + 1 special mandatory class per house + 1 student choice(optional) = 7 classes (or just 6)
"Why have classes?" Well, this is an Academy RP group. You can't have an academy without classes. Although we have all these classes remember that you WILL NOT have to do any kind of school work. Again, this is an RP group. The classes are only here to add to the story.
"If we don't have to do work then what are the assignments?" Assignments are just that. They are assignments. But not math or research or anything like that. It's ART. An example of an average assignment would be: Draw your student reading. Some assignments will have nothing to do with classes, for example: Draw your student walking around the ac
