Case HS/1 - DOGGY!

You would like to say you're having a good time in Reep's little hangout, but that would be a lie. That is because Reep chills at school, in a little room behind an innocuous wall panel that no one ever pays attention to. This is on purpose, because could you imagine... normal people coming in and messing with His Things? Goodness.

Sadly, Reep is not here today, nor will he be for some time. Sadly? Hah! You now have the run of the... clubhouse? It's a tiny little lounge space, full of odd accoutrements and belongings that might befit such a rat-brained person. Shiny things and cozy blankets. It is a nice place to stow away during this silly 'social period' the school instituted near the end of the day. Sure, some people are in the band, and chill with their band things, but you're not like them. You sit in a hole in the wall and chat wizardly. Fashionable.
Letter of ReepMy colleagues.
As discussed prior, I must be away to convene with the Academe Esoterica inspectors, and they refuse to fly over here, rather than the reverse. Hence, Germany. You are to touch nothing unless it is meant to be touched, at which point you should touch it furiously. If things are broken, I will blame everyone. I do anyway, but if nothing is broken, there is no need to dole out punishment. Hint hint.
Tobias has the keys. You may fight over them if you wish, but please do not lose them. I will eat you if you do, and you will give me a stomachache. Then everyone will be sad.
I do not trust you, but that's okay, because no one trusts you, least of all you. Something Will go wrong, and you Will have to fix it, so please be on the lookout for that sort of thing. If everything does, in fact, turn out quiet and cozy, please disregard this snark.
- Reep

Tobias: The keys are just the one key, which is brass and doesn't fit into any lock. It does make the locks of the school that would normally stymie you casually unclench for a time when you approach. Handy, that.
Places of TravelDesc
HallwayEww. Back out into school. You don't have to do this for another 15 minutes.
Eternal ToiletThis doorway leads to a private commode, because Reep is mortified at the idea of using the school bathrooms.
FreeeeedomNow now, school isn't over yet. This is Against The Rules, and will require stealth checks.
OOCIntroduce yourself! Who are you, what do you look like, what is this thing?

Tobias pulls out the brass key from his coat pocket and holds it up in front of his face and begins to speak with a strange Columbian Accent. "Welp. Here's the key. Anybody know what it does?" He pauses, then puts it back in his pocket. "Umm, I'm Tobias. I'd appreciate if we keep the talking to a minimum, I get hardcore anxiety attacks from prolonged social interaction." He then pulls out a rather thick booklet titled "Edgar Allen Poe's Complete Condensed Collection" and begins to read thoroughly, while still paying half-attention to the rest of them. Books are so much better than people, they actually have something interesting to say!
Atleast, he had an opportunity to let his ears out for a breather while in school. That was always good. His annoying hat is always a pain to wear.

"I'm guessing it opens a door?" followed by a breath to signify a silent chuckle. "I'm Chris in case any of you wanted to know. And what else are we supposed to do, study? Like that's going to happen, save it for a class that is more boring than the rest." she continues with a welsh accent that everyone assumes is english. "Who needs anxiety when no one notices you?" she adds.

Somehow, Kira found herself in a backalley hideout. She wasn't quite sure how, but she was. It was a mystery which she quickly filed away as being pointless; it wasn't so bad, even with the others who were there. As long as they left her alone, she wouldn't have to explain herself or talk to them. As long as she could keep to herself, she could stay calm and collected. Sure, they were far more interesting characters than the rest of the school, but they were still people. If one thing was certain in her life, it was that people were gross.

Other people, anyway; Kira was just fine. After listening to Tobias' muttering and subsequent withdrawal from the world, she followed suit with one of those little audio thingamajigs. You know, the whatsits. It played a music with which she was familiar, and granted her a sense of calm and security among the strangers she found herself with. In addition to the bunny-eared schoolboy, there was the cute guy, the plain guy and the cool girl. None of them interested her. Turn up the beats, whatsit; she didn't need that deadbeat crowd cramping on her style, nor forcing her to communicate with them. They were independent human beings who were perfectly capable of doing so themselves.

Jack sat in Reep's hideaway staring violently at Tobias. It's not that he meant the rabbit any violence so much as staring violently was about the only way be stared. It's hard to learn the appropriate way to look at people when no one, not even other supernaturals, hardly ever notice you. He didn't really understand how Tobias could ever say that he did not want conversation, that he did not like social interaction. What kind of unfair **** is that!? Jack wished that he had enough of a social life that he could "want to be alone."

The feeling boiled for a little while until the violent stare actually became menacing. Perhaps Jack did mean violence to Tobias after all, or perhaps he was feeling indigestion from all that food he recovered from the cafeteria dumpster. Oi, Toby," the boy's voice seemed somewhere between a yell and a whisper, as though he wanted to be heard but the universe didn't want to hear him, "What gives!? We ain't good enough for mister Houdini in Wonderland? Think this Jack is going to stand for your ****?" He stood and waded through the various leaving of their rat brained compatriot, leaving a trail of what he hoped was cheese in his wake. He considered grabbing Tobias' book and tossing it aside but for the moment he just got uncomfortably close and stood their grimacing.

Chris eyes Jack "Oi feo, give it a rest will you?" she says casually, decidedly not studying for her math test. Why couldn't math tests be as easy as a martial arts tournament? Oh wait, she was disqualified for being a "show-off" just because she lept entirely over her opponents head and used the ensuing confusion to beat him into the mat. Apparently they frown on beating your opponent's head into the mat.

Tobias raises an eyebrow and speaks without even looking at Jack. "Hm, funny how I prefaced this with saying that I get extreme social anxiety, and yet it still seems to be hard for that to get through your thick skull. " This was a good self defense mechanism for Tobias, to pretend like he's able to kick someone's butt, even though he clearly wouldn't hold a penny up during a fist-to-fist fight, but it worked so far in his life. Except for the few times when he had a Panic attack while getting a little too passionate with his act. "Nontheless, I didn't come here to make enemies. Hell, I don't even know why I came here. I suppose it's my hatred of School."

Chris rolls her eyes, or rather the one that is visible. "Maybe because of the silly social hour? I mean what do they expect us to do...talk?" she snorts.

It might take the others a few moments to notice Minako. The blue-haired, plainly (if slightly effeminately) dressed boy had his arms crossed, was sitting in a dark corner...taking a nap, actually. It had taken the raised voice of Jack's swearing to wake him up, Minako yawning as he stood up, suddenly 200% more visible. "Mmm...glad to know that partial-invisibility cantrip partially works..." He would mutter, eyeing the other four in turn. "Mmm...Talk, is it? Aaah, too early in the morning for that, too early." Reaching into his satchel and pulling out a thermos, Minkao would begin to chug it, shrugging upon Chris's comment. "Well, if we're going to socalize, um, my name's Minako, Minako Morgan. Pleased to meet you all. ...That IS how these highschool socializing events, rituals, stuff go? Um, do we need to shake hands now?"

Instead of yelling back at anyone again, Jack stands there in a strange state of shocked awe. He didn’t expect Tobias to react to him; in fact he didn’t expect anyone else in the room to react to him. No one, not even Reep ever seemed to notice when he snuck in for a breather. He knew that most other supernaturals were generally glossed over by the rest of humanity, but Jack had been forgotten wholly by it and by most other supernaturals as well. He stood there in place before swiveling around slowly, looking at each of the others in turn.

“You guys are telling me that y’all actually notice me? Like I’m not just an empty space and a whisper?” You guys actually see me here right now?!” Tears begin streaming down his face as he comes to the conclusion himself. Making an uncharactoristically intelligent move, he chooses not to rush and hug Tobias, but rather slams himself into a hug on Minako. "You people really see me! Oh! Minako! Chris! Tobias! Creepy cat girl! Oh sweet zombie Jesus!" The words become sobs, the sobs become laughter, and he cotninues on for a little while in a display of reckless emotional abandon.

Creepy cat girl? That might get a slap...I'm curious now. "Well...yeah...You're standing right there. I dunno if what you've got is worse than....floating away at the most awkward times." she says, referring to what tends to happen to her and, vaguely to that one time in middle school when she floated out of the locker room. Though no one would ever know of that. No one

Jack, perhaps gaining a little composure looks to Chris, tears having left a wet white trail through an otherwise somewhat dirty face. "I would take floating or bunny ears over being left so alone. You are the first people to notice me since sixth grade! My parents no longer noticed or remembered me, the school teachers don't notice me. The people whose attic I've commandeered don't notice me. Like there is one thing not noticing people with powers like you guys, I've seen that work enough times by now, but its a whole other thing to not be noticed at all!"

The boy suddenly went green in the face and shut his eyes. "I think excitement plus diving for dinner in the dumpster is coming back to bite me." Jack now considers whether to vomit or lie down....

Chris stretches a bit, wiggling a foot that had gone to sleep "Long as I don't catch you in the women's dressing room or restroom, we're cool." she says plainly, with a hint of unknown emotion that lets you know she is serious about only really caring about those particular instances.

Minako froze for a minute, before wiggling out of Jack's hug, taking a few steps back. "Right, um, right. Yes, we notice you." He said, resuming taking his seat upon a cozy bean bag chair near the back. Pondering for a moment, he would reach into his bag, and pull out half of a sandwich. "Well, my mom packed me a bit too much food today, so, um, if you'd like something to eat.." By the tone of his voice, it was clear that Minako wasn't sure if Jack was being serious or not.

For the first time in forever, Tobias was feeling rather interested in what they had to say. He took it upon himself to raise himself and remove the book from their face. Of course he wasn't going to subdue to the temptations, but he would let off a slight sigh. "Maybe we should touch some of this stuff? For kicks."
