Log Entry: Apprehensive Winds... [28 May 2003|05:24pm]

It's been pleasant, these past few weeks, helping the new and arriving students settle in. New faces to become accustomed to, new voices calling to each other down the corridors.. I do think I'm getting sentimental, but these are the things that remind me of my first days at the mansion. Slight confusion, bits of chaos, but also blooming curiosity, the shine of novelty not yet faded, and then the slow, growing comfort as the faces I passed by became recognizable and easily connectable to fond memories-- and sometimes not so fond memories--; like the easy sinking into a bed piled high with soft, downy feather quilts or some such. I can see all these reactions, varied but still the same, conflicting on the faces of these new students.

And best of all, on some faces, I can see hope as they adjust and they realize that they're accepted here, like they could never be accepted anywhere else. Just as there must've been the light of hope that shone from my face as I realized the same.

This is one of the many reasons why I love this place.

For all its peace and dynamacy. The place in my heart that I can truly identify as home. But, well, I must be getting sentimental with the years. And, a deep concern has welled within me as the winds have warned me of a shadow that darkens this place of learning and light.

I have warned the Professor of these ominous warnings, bewaring us of a rising storm of blood and hate. He listens gravely and informs me that he, too, has seen this on the Cerebro, however we can do little but wait. And prepare. I fully intend to prepare. Fearing for my students, my friends, and my home, I will stand strong to protect what I hold dear.

And, well, there's the clock ringing for one in the morning. Early classes tomorrow, so I'd best try and sleep.

[ music | Recollections - Billy Cobham ]

In the middle of a dreamless sleep, a comforting voice gently prodded at the back of Ororo Munroe's mind. And as if she'd never fallen asleep, her wide brown eyes were open. Slipping out from between her warm, richly-toned sheets, Ororo padded across the cool, hardwood floor, her bare feet hardly making a sound. The breeze from her open window plucked softly at her lighter than air cotton sleeping trousers, and nightgown, weighed down by colorful glass beads that reflected her past in their every glint of movement.

Opening her heavy, oak door with not so much as a creak, Ororo stepped out into the quiet corridor and made her way over to the well-concealed elevator shaft as its doors slid silently open for her. Inside the elevator car waited a calm-looking bald-headed man in a wheelchair: Professor Charles Xavier.

"He's gone again."

Xavier nodded as Ororo stepped onto the lift and the doors closed behind her. "Yes, I'm afraid so." Ororo smiled slightly, despite the dire news, at her first teacher, one of the few people in the world she trusted utterly and completely, without a question or a doubt.

"All right, then. We'd better get to work. I've a class in the morning."

Re: Concerning Pyro...

Professor Xavier,

I'm extremely concerned about the behavior of the student: John Allerdyce or Pyro. As you know, he destroyed the water fountain in the front drive, this afternoon, blowing a couple of underground power lines as well. This is all reparable, of course, and if it were a matter of simply losing control, I would not be emailing you, however, my suspicion is-- I have not further questioned him about this-- that he was using his powers for his own amusement and without supervision of an adult. We recognize that it is not yet within his abilities to completely control his powers to the extent of the assurance that he will not hurt another while using them, as are many others in the school, which is why the first and foremost rule of conduct is held upon him: the rule that states that students may not use their powers for any reason beyond the immediate safety of one's life, including their own, while under the jurisdiction of the administration of one Xavier's Institute for the Gifted. The implications of John's situation in this incident is quite clear. And though I am set very firmly against any type of disciplinary action, I suggest that we investigate further and keep a close eye on Mr. Allerdyce. This is simply a suggestion, but I hope that you will take it seriously. Now, I must get back to writing my article.

Hey everyone,

This is the OOC Community, where you can post what you like, talk amongst yourselves, and whatnot. Feel free to introduce yourselves too. But first, to clarify some things...

1. This is an X:Men Evolution RPG more than anything, so please remember that y'all are in High School, excepting those who are in teaching positions (i.e. Beast, Wolverine, Storm, Xavier, etc.)

2. Please, I beg you, PLEASE use spell-check when you're in official RP-mode. This means: correct grammar, correct spelling, etc. I hate to sound like your fifth grade English teacher, but it does make a hell of a lot of difference on how people read into it. I could care less about how you write here, but please at least make it legible when you're RPing.

3. RPing for the most part will take place while online, talking to each other over AIM, and then the convo will be cut and pasted and fixed to look pretty and then posted. Journal entries are a different matter of posting in the "xXX" section, otherwise known as commenting. If anyone has any trouble with this, please contact me. I know it can get a bit confusing, so it's really no problem.

Other than that, we still need a ton of more people to start this thing! The character list is still NOT FULL, and as much as I love original characters, I'd really like to start from there, so please recruit! Thanks!
