So, uh ... one of my roommates got brought to the hospital, but ... other than bein' real dehydrated, I don't know what the hell's wrong with her...
I know people're already sayin' this is the castle up to its usual bullshit, but ... why would it do this, first? [there's a pause as she takes a drink - she's not taking any chances, after all]
This ... I know Ino's just dehydrated, but I got a feelin' in the pit of my stomach that's an awful lot like when we found Joan's body in that back alley. Like somethin's just gettin' started. ... I don't want my big-girl body back. Just my gun.
I think I speak for a few of us, 'least, when I say "fuck homework". We got other shit to worry about, now.
[So classes today as usual, right? Not that Penny actually went to any of them. This one was in town, shopping instead and is now stalking the hallways during lunch, completely out of dress code unless it's been changed to include leather miniskirts and tube tops. She's also not being particularly careful in her hunt for a certain nerd and has carelessly knocked into a couple students already without bothering to apologize.
Bump into her? Wolf whistle? Hand her a detention slip for dress code violations? Just pray you're not the nerd she's looking for!
Did we mention she has a water bottle in her hand?]
((ooc: tags will be slow until after work but this couldn't... NOT go up right now XD))
[Puddle's been quietly watching people around the dorms and the school today, taking quiet note of the water bottles. So many water bottles.
And then there were the sick kids. Dehydration. Contagious. None of this felt right. Not to mention that a week had come and gone and he was still. human.
Lost in all his thoughts, the solemn Wiggle-turned-human can be found sitting on the bleachers by the football field, staring up at the sky]
Always said the lack of rain is unnatural. It doesn't follow the proper course of things, and that's bound to end in disaster. It's just not right.
Not that this thirst thing has anything to do with the weather, even if it is a rather lot like a drought, but I'd bet on Aslan himself that this is the castle's doing. I've no doubt about it.
Something ought to be done, not that it'll do any good, but it's plain that things won't be stopped just by waiting to see what it's got coming next. If we're bound to die either way, might as well do it properly.
It seems as though the problems never stop presenting themselves.
I have found myself somewhere I have never been or agreed to go to. And on a more pressing matter, it appears that my young master has gone missing. Everything else looks to be in tact, and I was provided with this journal in which I am writing. In it I am also able to see writings of others. Perhaps they are from here as well. Of course I will look into this further, but first I need to see to it that my master is safe somewhere.
If there is someone out there able to view my writings as well, any information on this place would be appreciated.

[it's evening and the sun's slowly setting, but still there's a little girl and an older one in the middle of a park in town: it's brightly lit, so it's safe, and the particular area they're in is a small playground; there's a sandbox, a small seesaw, and a swing set... the smaller one being pushed by the other... they're silent for a bit, and then]
So tell me, Chie. Why weren't you at school today? I didn't take you for the rebellious type.
Well, I've finished my science report ... hardly a challenge at all! ... I do hope they've got plenty of water stocked, we all seem to be going through a good deal of it.
And ... I know this is all very stressful for some of us, but ...
[he shakes his head, picking up the last of his homework and books to head out of the library] It's no reason for people to lose their minds, is it?
It's been a long time since I was in a body this young, but ... at least I can try and keep a level head.
Has anyone heard anything?
[with that, he'll start heading back to his dorm - feel free to run into him!]
[while everyone else is running around either trying to skip or not fail class, or freaking out about the human raisins, Rusty is doing what down-and-out superscientists stuck in their teenage bodies do best:T.S VENTURE'S SUPER-EFFECTIVE REHYDRATION ELIXIR - $1
taking advantage of the situation.
he's sitting in the school lobby at a rickety folding table, with several Tupperware pitchers full of something strangely orange-colored, and a few bags of Solo cups.
there's a sign lettered on posterboard, hanging from the front of the table:
so, Paradisans ... how thirsty are you?]
