    Ian was always able to smell the food cooking hours before dinner time, which was both a blessing and a curse. He'd sat on his bed, tossing a ball up the ceiling, for half an hour before it was finally time for dinner. His roommate was no where to be found, but that wasn't any concern of his because they were both grown and neither of them needed anyone to play mommy for them, though it seemed like sometimes the faculty of Hawthorne begged to differ. Even if Ian didn't know where the dinning hall was, he would have been able to find it by hunting down the smell alone, and when he got there he quickly filled up his plate with food before spotting his friends at their usual table. They'd sat at the same table by the window pretty much since they'd began eating meals at Hawthorne, though a few of his old friends had gone while new ones took their place. He began walking over to the table his plate in one hand and drink in the other, excited to hear if his friends had seen anything exciting throughout the day, as was a usual occurrence at Hawthorne.

    Lizzy detested communicating with the other people at Hawthorne. It wasn't that she was moody, it was because she would rather spend the day in her dorm with Brachy and Thera. These were not people whom attended Hawthorne, but Lizzy would protest. You see, Brachy and Thera were spiders. Tarantulas, to be more precise. Their names came from the abbreviation of their Latin name. A small smirk appeared on her lips, as she looked down at her shoulder bag. Just because they weren't students, doesn't mean they can't go to lunch. Her 'pets' were in her bag, as she entered the lunch hall. She spotted some familiar people, but wouldn't call them best friends. More like acquaintances, as she picked up the more healthy option of the food on display, and sat down at a table. Picking up a lettuce leaf, she stuffed it into her bag. All of her 'pets' co-exist with one another, never would they fight. Lizzy found that spiders were her key friends, they got her through some deep stuff.

    Elwin winced at the clang of cutlery, the chatter of the crowd gathering at the dining hall, even though he was still in his room. His room mate had long since left, leaving him alone to brood. Rubbing his temples, he tried to stave off the headache that was making its presence known, grumbling under his breath at the incessant noise. For as long as he could remember, he had had the ability to hear peoples' thoughts, their random musings, innermost monologues. It was both a blessing, and a curse, and right then, he would gladly switch it all off. Inhaling, he licked his lips at all the different scents he could detect, feeling his gums throb, somewhat painfully. He hadn't fed in a few days, the others in his group, all going off to hunt alone. He'd preferred to stay behind, but was now regretting it. Grabbing his messenger bag, he swung off his bed and headed towards the chatter, his fists clenching and unclenching at the mindless drivel some of them were thinking. Meandering through the tables, he plucked a blood bag out of the fridge and chose a table in the far corner, wanting to be left alone.

    Rose stared at the various options in the cafeteria, struck with a characteristic problem of indecision. Nothing was "speaking to her", food wise. Luckily, the cafeteria harpies - this school's version of the evil lunch ladies- were decent cooks. Some of the many schools she'd attended had some nasty, inedible food. But she knew no matter what she grabbed she'd be happy. She finally settled on a freshly made grill cheese with a bowl of tomato soup, glancing around the lunch room. She didn't really have her own group, she was more of a floater really, forcing her way into the few cliques that existed, or attempting to get the more withdrawn students to talk to her, which usually worked, surprisingly. Most of the students were rather introverted and moody, and rightly so- all the powers here had likely hurt the students, or caused them to be rejected and isolated. She felt as though compared to most people, her powers- if they could be called that - were almost normal in comparison to this lot. She finally decided to sit across from Lizzy, a girl who frankly, she was pretty sure the friendship was not welcome. "Hi Spider-Man." Rose grinned. "How's our favorite eight legged friends?"

    (Just for a heads up, I'm going to be gone for most of the night. I'm tired, and after going to the hospital to meet my new nephew at god knows what hour, I might hit the hay)
    Lizzy looked up at the nickname, and simply stared at Rose with a blank look in her eyes. "..Brachy and Thera are doing good. Thera has increased in size, I'm proud of her." Nodding her head, she munched into a cherry tomato. To be honest, she was quite intrigued with Rose and her superhuman reflexes. It wasn't quite as big as being say a werewolf or a witch, but Lizzy thought Rose was normal, in a good way. Lizzy wished to be normal, to live a life without her abilities. It hurts, seeing a spider getting squashed every day in the corridors. She shouldn't be feeling emotion to every spider she sees, but she can't help it. It is almost like she is attached to them. "How has your day been, Rose?"

    "Pretty good." Rose said, her mouth rather full. "I think my roommate is messing with my clothes again, so..I'm gonna have to be careful." Rose's roommate was a witch who had a rather bad habit of practicing her spells on Rose's wardrobe. The week where all her clothes were two sizes too small had been awful. "But that's good to hear, was it the spiders that never stop growing or was that a different animal?" Rose was genuinely interested in most people's abilities. It was a part of who they were, and she wanted to know how it affected them. Some people were proud of their powers, whereas others hated them. It was fascinating, the people here.

    Arabella sat lazily in her room, prone on her bed. She sighed, knowing she probably should have opted for a bedroom with a roomate; she just couldn't risk her. She knew she should get up, go out, and go eat. She hadn't eaten in days, but the idea of leaving her room terrified her. Wasn't that reason she was here? She was suppose to control herself, but it had barely begun. She sighed again, flipping onto her back as she fought with herself to get up. Finally, she decided getting up was a must. She wouldn't survive this place if she was utterly alone. She left her hair in that messy bun, slapped on a sports bra, some spandex shorts and a lose sweater. Maybe if she looked totally detestable no one would try to touch her.

    She approached the cafeteria slowly, keeping her hands locked to her arms and scanning the crowd carefully. She hated being new, she hated people, she hated her entire situation. At least they had chicken fingers, that some how made this day more manageable. She grabbed a plate and sat down far away from the chattering of her classmates, trying to enjoy a meal without accidently killing anyone.

    Lizzy merely blinked, before smiling slightly. "I find that my spiders grow with confidence. When they are around other spiders, they grow bigger. At least, that is what I believe." Picking up the second salad leaf, she gently placed it into her shoulder bag, only to have Thera climb halfway up her arm. Lizzy giggled, and moved Thera to sit on her lap. Being a Goliath bird eater, the second largest, it truly spooked some people out. However, it is up to Lizzy how she wants them to behave. If she wants them to be friendly, they are. If she wants them it be snappy, they are. "See? Thera has grown two centimetres!" Whenever it came to spiders, it always brightened up her mood.

    Elwin watched the two girls sitting at the table next to him, out of the corner of his eye, somewhat intrigued about them. His own roommate was a girl, another vampire from a different coven to his own, she was the only one he tolerated - apart from his coven - at Hawthorne Hall. Two of his brothers had graduated the previous year, his sister choosing to be home schooled because of her ability, which left him alone in the godforsaken place. His 'parents' had thought it a good idea to send him to the academy to fully develop his ability, to enhance it, fine tune his skills. He thought it was a waste of time. Sucking on his blood bag, he listened to their thoughts, blocking out the rest of the humdrum of voices. Oh, how he wished he could unleash his beast and kill them all.

    Rose had been spooked the first time she's seen Lizzy's spiders, but now she understood Lizzy's control over them. She was completely safe, even if they were creepy. Now they were more like strangely shaped cats. She grinned, looking at how the gigantic spider practically snuggled against Lizzy. To be honest, she couldn't see a difference in the size of the spider, but she completely appreciated the bond between them. "She has, she's simply beautiful." Rose murmured honestly. She glanced at the vampire in the corner who was watching the two of them, nursing his blood bag. She wondered if he were listening to their thoughts, smirking at the thought he probably heard her think that.

    Arabella huffed, bored and frustrated with own her situation. She looked jealously at the two girls talking and laughing. One of them in particular cuddled with a spider, and even though spiders grossed her out, she was jealous. She was jealous of her ability to touch a living thing that way. She was jealous of it all. She pushed away her food and turned around to momentary scan the room again: a vampire nursing a blood bag and a werewolf laughing with friends. Those were two people she could actually talk to, so she decided to act.

    She walked tentatively over to the vampire and mustered a small smile. "Um, can I sit?" She asked, nervously knotting her sweater in her hands. She wanted to be the girl she was before her powers, sexy and control. Now? Now she was nervous and searching for approval.

    Elwin rolled his eyes at the thought he heard, the smirk on the girl's face as she watched the spiders, she thought she was so smug. Pulling the collar of his coat up further, he hunched his shoulders, preferring to be hidden away from the rest of the students and staff alike. His long, black hair hung around his face like a curtain, shutting him off from the world. He couldn't care less if anyone liked him or not, he wasn't there to make friends. A waft of a scent hit him as he ducked beneath the table for his bag, stiffening as it made his throat turn dry. It was different from the others - strangely arousing. Tuning out the others, he tried to zone in on it, wondering where the delicious smell was coming from. Watching through his hair, he saw a girl walk towards his table, her scent getting stronger and stronger as she neared him. Flicking his dark eyes up to hers, he swallowed, thickly, breathing through his mouth.

    "Free country," he shrugged, moving his bag out of the way.

    Lizzy couldn't help the grin at the complement Rose gave her spider. "Thanks! See, people admire you!" Looking down at her spider, she brought it up to her face and rubbed it against her cheek gently with a great big smile on her face. Placing the eight legged animal back in her bag, she looked at the people around them. "Sorry, I get carried away. I love my spiders, they are like my family." She spoke with honesty in her voice, her smile fading slightly. "... I should really rephrase that, since I hate family 'bonding'." It was true, Lizzy hated communicating with her parents. They didn't approve of her fondness of spiders. That was Lizzy's secret, that she hasn't managed to tell to even those she considers 'friends'. Her father and her mother were not of the same 'species' as Lizzy. You see, her father cheated with a fellow Arachnid Manipulator. This resulted in the birth of Lizzy.

    Arabella tried to muster another smile as she plopped down casually across the table from him. She tucked a fallen piece of hair behind her ear and sucked in a shaking breath. She needed to not be nervous, she literally cannot kill this boy. It's actually impossible, so she has to yank up her old Bella confidence and say something. "I'm Arabella, uh. Are you new here?" She asked, mentally slapping herself. It's like she lost all of her social skills once she moved here. She huffed to herself; no it wasn't when she moved, it was before that. The boy should have been interesting to her, exciting to talk to someone, but it wasn't. God, she didn't know anything about what she was doing or who any of these people were. She was a 'late bloomer' and she didn't know anything. She was so entirely naive.

    Elwin watched the girl through narrowed eyes, studying her, listening to her scrambled thoughts. Snorting, he nodded, the corners of his mouth tilting up. "Yeah, it's my first term." Not particularly interested in making conversation with Arabella, he turned his attention to the tablet that sat on the table in front of him, idling swiping at the screen. He was probably coming off as rude but he didn't really care, hoping she would take the hint and leave him alone, her scent was driving him mad.

    Arabella smiled again, even if he was ignoring. "Me too. Obviously..." She leaned forward, reaching to see what he was looking at. She knew she was being annoying and she hated what she was doing, but she couldn't stop. "So, uh, what got you locked up?" She asked, giggling and ruffling her sweater again. When did she acquire such nervous ticks? She knew he was a vampire, but her extent of knowledge on vampire was clouded with all the usual lies and fairy tales, so she made no assumptions. Instead, she sat and made holes in her sweaters, completely and totally aware of how horribly she was failing at making friends.

    "I get it." Rose smiled softly. "They're how family is meant to be." She loved how happy Lizzy clearly got with her spiders, though she could guess that there were some family issues that had come with it. She didn't push Lizzy for them, she'd tell them if and when she was ready. "So, excited to get our new schedules for the quarter?" She asked. They made curriculums individual to each student, which was part of what made it so special here. It helped them learn how to use and develop their skills.

    Lizzy thought for a moment, biting her lip and closing her eyes. "I... Guess so? I mean, I don't look at things with that much of a smile." Stabbing her salad leaf with her fork, she placed it in her mouth, nodding her head at the taste. At least this school had decent food. Better than anything her parents could make. Normal people didn't understand food and how good it should be.

    "Well...I feel life is easier if you do." Rose murmured. All of them had classes on how to mesh with normal society, as it was referred to here. What they actually meant was hide your powers. Then there were specialized classes, that had to do with your powers. Rose took several martial arts classes, as it worked well with her skill. Then there was of course, math, English, and history of "mythology". The boring ones.
