    Truman: Sure, pull up a chair and stay awhile! I'm Truman, this is Seeker.

    Seeker: Greetings.

    Truman: Just put out your hand and think what you want to have! Tell us what you've all been up to.

    Katherine: Some tea would be lovely. *she pours herself a cup after the pot appears*

    Avery: So, *he pours himself a cup of coffee from a newly materialised pot* things just magically appear here. That is very cool.

    Kes: I wouldn't worry about it Vanna, family can be complicated. *to the newcomers* I'm Kes.

    Avery: Hi Kes! Hi everyone! I have an older brother, Jack, who is a law...enforcement...dude of some description. I don't really know. How about you Kate?

    Katherine: I had a twin sister Caroline. She was forced to leave a few years ago now. Like Kes said, family is usually pretty complicated.

    Avery: What happened?

    Katherine: Uh, well... *drinking her tea shyly* Dad is, or was, an angry drunk. I was a good study but Caroline struggled and I helped her. She fell for a guy called Cameron who I knew from Art classes. We were good friends and he was always getting into trouble. He never painted the way our teacher wanted him to but everyone liked him for that. *swirling her tea nervously* Dad was...um, he was harsh on Caroline and she confided in me. She wanted to run away with Cameron once she turned sixteen. I, uh...I gave her some of my money and I never saw them again. *hastily drinking her tea*

    Avery: Ah, I'm sorry Kate. *hugs her* Hey, did you want a refill? *pours her another using telekinesis, Kate giggles*

    Kes: Your father doesn't sound particularly charming Kate. Don't worry, I get it. What was your mother like?

    Katherine: Oh, mum's a waitress and made threads for people too. She's pretty swell. We had to run away together but I learnt a lot about her in that year. One time, right, we were in a little diner and she told me about a little cafe that she used to work in. There was an old guy living around the back and one night when she went out for a smoke, she heard him humming a little jazz tune. It was after hours so she just kind of, let him in.

    Avery: Was it one of the cafes with the live band thing? I love those.

    Katherine: Yeah, so all the instruments were still out! Basically, he started playing the guitar and some of the band joined in. They had a blast. I wish I could've seen it.

    Kaelie: Um, hello there, everybody. I am not quite sure how I got here, but I have been having random magical abilities appear lately, so perhaps this is part of that?

    Elodie: Then how did I get here?

    Kaelie: Oh! I did not see you there, Elodie. You would know...is this some strange part of Selection Day preparation?

    Elodie: Not that I know of. At least, it is nothing that Aphra ever said anything about. *Gives a little wave* Hello everyone, I am Elodie d'Guisti, and this is my friend Kaelie fara'Rosa. We are Beast Rider recruits from Rosehold, in Valaria.

    Kaelie: *whispers* Should we be telling them that? Should I draw my daggers? Maybe call for Evalynne or Lianora? What if A.V. sent them?

    Elodie: Do not be so silly, Kaelie. *Glances around* They all look...quite normal...mostly... *gives herself a little shake* I am sure it is fine.

    Vanna: Hallo, newcomers! I'm Vanna Beaurenice, these are my friends Jasmine Oakwood, Bonnie McIntyre, Cis Mayberry, Ophelia Downes, and Paula Jennings. I'm fifteen, so are Cis and Paula, Jasmine is-

    Ophelia: We can introduce ourselves. I'm Ophelia, I'm fourteen, and we all go to St. Edith's Academy, which is a boarding school in Nottinghamshire. Vanna and I come from prestigious wizarding families-

    Cis: Oh, prestigious now, are you? Well, we other four are perfectly normal folk. Our book's set in 1934, so we might not get all your cultural references. Although you sound like your book is fantasy.

    Elsie: I'm Elsie Fox, since we seem to be doing surnames as well this time, I'm from a different book to Vanna and co. This is my friend Cecilia Ryan and we're both fourteen. We go to Willowdown School, which is not a boarding school. Our book's set in 1911, so no cultural references either, please. Cecilia's shy and I'm still learning to be less confrontational, so neither of us talk much.

    Henrietta: I am Princess Maria Henrietta de Babineaux-Vauquelin, daughter of King Rodolpho of Cavallia, and I am sixteen years old. You must call me Henrietta, as my sisters are called Maria also. My book is set in 1732, and I have no friends with me as our author is still developing characters for my book. She knows who they are, but not what they are like. Katherine, I have always wished for a twin sister. However, I suppose I cannot complain of loss, as I have eleven siblings: Francois, Georges, Violetta, Béatrisa, Guillaume, Giovanna, Jean-Luc, Cecilia, Charlotta, Guido, and Georgiana. They are between the ages of twenty-seven and eight, and I come between Cecilia and Charlotta. In addition, Francois and Violetta are both married with children, and we live with many other relatives also. Francois's wife, Elise, is the daughter of the unfortunate Comte and Comtesse.

    Jasmine: I don't have nearly as many siblings - I have three brothers, Bob, Billy, and Jack. Bob's engaged to a lady called Betty, but Billy and Jack are still at school.

    Elsie: I have four: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Father's a vicar, you see, religion's very important to him. I'm Elizabeth for John the Baptist's mother, and the new baby on the way will probably get a biblical name too.

    Cecilia: I have an older brother called Cyril-

    Elsie: Who's a perfect beast. Besides, we can't all talk about our siblings, we'd be here all day.

    Jasmine: Your Art teacher doesn't sound very good. Miss Elliot, the Art teacher at my last school, said I couldn't paint right either, but Miss Juniper, the Art teacher at St. Edith's, says that there isn't a right way to paint and I'm very good at being creative and putting my thoughts into a picture. She told me to join the Art Soc. and I love it. She's my favourite mistress.

    Vanna: She's my favourite too, even though I don't do Art very well. She really brought the inner artist out of Jasmine. It sounds like you have a good relationship with your mother, Katherine. Kind of reminds me of me and my mum. We spent our lives on the run together. I hope Caroline found happiness with Cameron. We've talked way too much, once again, so suppose Kaelie and Elodie tell us a bit more about yourselves. What do you do all day?

    Yaroslav: *to Oleg* I think we arrived just in time here. Is my hair right? Lucky I used some of Papa's cologne today.

    *Oleg sighs*

    Yaroslav: All of your presentations are so intriguing! I am so interested on making friends with as much girls as possible, and those magic tricks are awesome! *looking at Seeker* And how do you make that trick, like in that movie about space critters? Are you some sort of hologram? That's cool! I mean, I have watched some animated statues at the Dino Park, but never something like you! I hope the tickets for seeing you aren't too expensive! Do you have a movie, or something?

    Oleg:
    Slava, I suspect that the glowing blue 'kid' is not a thing but a being. Maybe we shouldn't be too hasty on dealing with people we don't know. Papa taught us caution and responsibil-*realizes Avery's reference about a living band* Hey Avery, have you been on a cafe with a living band? How cool. How often do you go there? I wish to go there someday, since I love music. Also, learning to play the electric guitar is one of my wishes... for when I get one... which may be never... but well, I like to think that someday I'll go to a live band's performance, at least.

    Yaroslav:
    *upsets* I told you that the music you like is for worshiping the devil! And no, we can't afford anything like that, because we are poor, and we must save for Misha to get a decent education! I don't want for him to attend the same public shithole resembling a school than we do. *asks to everyone* What about you, people? Do you go to school, college or some crappy place like that?

    Oleg: Slava, you are too judgmental about music. Not all heavy metal is for worshiping the devil. If only you could lend it some ear-

    Yaroslav: No! I don't want anything related to the devil in our house, specially not around Mihail! We have talked about this! *to Vanna* So, my baby brother and Papa were around? Thank you for the tip! Though, I'm appalled about you thinking that I'll be disrespectful in any way! I am friendly, I like girls a lot, but I'm a respectful gentleman *smiles*. I confess that I like them a little older than me, and I'm always available for a friendship! I hope that my brother Oleg learns something about liking girls better with my example. He is shy around them.

    Oleg: That's not what happens to me about girls.

    Yaroslav: And I'll find a way to fix that, don't you worry! Give them a chance of being friendly at you at least!

    Oleg:
    *to Henrietta*As you can figure out, Yaroslav is the 'energetic' one of us two. I'm just the 'not-so-energetic' one. But we love each other even with our differences. It's just that he takes his role of 'big bro' very serious, and wants only the best for me, Papa and Misha. We would be nowhere as family without him. And about girls, well it's nothing personal, but I just... don't. I can't stand to be near one for too long. It's overwhelming, in a very bad way. Some chitchat is alright, but... I keep my distance. Hope it's okay with you all.

    Yaroslav: Aw bro, come here! *hugs and kisses Oleg's cheek, remains clinging at his side, then keeps talking with Vanna* We are the best brothers in all the world, and we are very friendly, but I must recognize that we weren't always that nice with everyone else! I mean, we grew in a hard neighborhood before moving from our country, and we used to hang around with our cousin's gang, and there we learned a lot of bad stuff! We are not too proud of such, but we left all that past behind, and we want to have a happy life as everyone else! Now true, we still kick some asses from now and then, but only the ones who deserve it. And we won't shoplift, stickup other kids or sell weed never again. It was a promise we made after Mama died. I still miss her *gets a little sad*.

    Oleg: Those were hard times, and Papa still doesn't take it very well, despite he make us feel as if he's alright. Slava takes care of his mood and brightens our day, always. I... I am not the kind of guy that shines. All the opposite. But I don't care about the pain, since I can take it while helping with the chores. I'm the cook at home, by the way.

    Yaroslav:
    You people should try his Strogonoff and Rice! It's the best dish in the whole world! Not even Mihail dares to make a tantrum about that one! And yes, it has been the only dish that Koshka, our cousin, hasn't sneered at... he's a snotty prick sometimes!

    Seeker: Forgive me. Truman, requires some occasional... unexpected elements in his exisience.
    (blue glow dissipates, as Seeker morphs into a slightly older version of Mihail, with the same voice, but not his accent or demeanor, and slightly glowing blue hair): I can use the same forms as an Alpha class Mag-moeba. Is this a more acceptable form?

    Truman: They have no idea what a Mag-moeba is. Why don't you try being a talking sheep?

    Seeker: The talking sheep was... interesting, but disruptive. Perhaps the young people here have a suggestion?

    Kes: Nobody has killed each other here yet Kaelie, no need for knives. *smiles*

    Avery: Yet? Please don't start any killing - I've only just got my coffee!

    Katherine: *to Jasmine* Our teacher did her best, but I don't think she really enjoyed teaching the subject. My mum's friend was a painter and said much the same thing as yours.

    Avery: Oh sure Oleg, all the time. The city loves that kind of thing and it's where I met a lot of fellow wizards. There are loads of music shops around where I live too - I bought a guitar as soon as I was settled in. It's acoustic though. I'm sure you'll get an electric one someday. *drinking coffee* Hey, if you think about having one in this room, I suppose the room would give it to you right?

    Katherine: Like it does with the drinks? *Avery nods* That would be pretty cool...

    Avery: I went to school and college with my brother Jack but dropped out after a while. Not one for constant studying you see. We had some good times until it became apparent I was a wizard and had to move out. The little town we grew up in, *finishes his coffee* doesn't like things that aren't conventional. You know, business haircut, suit and tie, modest house...They're boring. I don't know how Jack deals with them.

    Katherine: I didn't have a great education - my family is poor as well. Other children were scared of the fact that I could see ghosts. Sometimes I would get anxious in class and dad would hear about it and get angry. I loved learning though! Aside from the bad things, I had fun. But I'm a writer and painter now, so I don't suppose school mattered all that much.

    Kes: Don't worry about it Oleg - we're all very nice here. As for school, I went to college for a bit but my father and sister soon needed me for work. The things we do can't really be taught in school.

    Avery: So, you're like...a hitwoman or something?

    Kes: Dude really? *sighs*

    Katherine: Why would you kill people Kes?

    Kes: *rolls eyes* Because they pay me, Katherine. *glares at Avery* They're usually pretty bad people anyway. Besides, if I didn't, my father would fillet me like a fish. No one in my family has ever done anything that didn't involve spying or murdering or manipulating or stealing. Trust me kiddo, if I could get out and be a painter I would have done that already.

    Avery: You mean to say, you kill people dressed like that?

    (Kes is wearing a floor length gold sequin dress)

    Kes: Uh...once or twice yes.

    Katherine: So, uh...*finishes her tea* What's a stroganoff Oleg?

    Avery: *watching the Seeker* What about a unicorn? Wait, what can you actually do? Can you turn into my brother Jack?

    Vanna: Of course the room can give you a guitar, Oleg! I love my guitar and I wish it was here now *a dark blue electric guitar and amplifier appear* fabulous. It was an eleventh birthday present, and I've taught myself how to play by watching YouTube videos. I'm not that into heavy metal, I prefer slightly less intense rock. Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs, the Arctic Monkeys, things like that. If you get your own guitar, I'll teach you Seven Nation Army. That was the first song I learned.

    Jasmine: Seeker, could you turn into something else? That's a bit creepy.

    Henrietta: I quite agree. It must be even more uncanny for his brothers. Perhaps just a person not known to anyone in here?

    Bonnie: We actually did have a talking sheep in here a while ago. That was fun.

    Paula: Fun? He was an alien with glowing eyes! His name was Pancracio.

    Jasmine: Ophelia can cook, she was raised by the domestic staff. Maybe she knows what strogonoff is.

    Ophelia: I can indeed cook. I don't know what strogonoff is, though.

    Vanna: It's a little bit like thicker beef pie filling. You eat it with rice, it's a Russian dish. I cooked at home, too. I grew up without my dad and Mum had to work a lot of jobs to keep us afloat, so she never had the time or energy to cook. I made strogonoff a few times. My favourite was spaghetti carbonara, though.

    Yaroslav:*to Seeker* Whoa that's awesome! It's like having a photo of yourself, but you can choose how old you want to appear! I always wondered how would look Misha when older, and if he would look more like us or more like our Papa, or more like Mama. You see, Mama was blond and pale, but Oleshka and me got black haired as Papa, but pale. Also, our hair's shape comes from Mama's family, since Misha has it curly and not so stiff as us! Also, Misha is a little more tan than us, as Papa! I'm sure that Papa would not like to watch you, but I'm okay with your shaping.

    Oleg:*to Seeker* That freaks me a bit. But not in a big way. The glowing hair is cool, though. I guess I could consider it as Slava does. What is a Mag-moeba? Is some sort of Amoeba, but bigger?

    Yaroslav:*to Katherine* So, you can see ghosts? I know of a detective that does that too! I'm afraid of ghosts, though. But I think that's a cool ability! Actually, I'm a big fan of the detective mister Anton Nevsky! It was a shame that he got kinda nosy and we had to... well... ahem... kidnap him for a little while... I mean, for his and our own safety! He had followed a clue, but his employer was an evil one, and he was endangering one of our new brothers that-

    Oleg: Slava, shut up.

    Yaroslav: Oh, right, I'm doing it again, sorry Oleshka *gets a bit embarrased*. But the important is that I like him a lot, and he's very cool! Maybe even I make myself a private detective when older! I wonder if he offers lessons...

    Oleg: *to Avery* You mean, to imagine something and getting it here? That's... nice, I guess. I mean, is great, but I prefer to not use my imagination for the moment. Lately I have been at odds with most of what's going on inside my mind. I mean, what if I imagine a guitar, but instead something else comes out by accident? Like a dinosaur or a talking sheep? That would be kinda scary. *to Katherine* A strogonoff is and easy-to-make recipe of diced beef meat, cooked with mushrooms and sour sauce. It's flexible, but the core is at the beef and the sauce. Vanna is right about it. My special trick is on the dicing of the beef, not too slim nor too bulky, just perfect for the sauce to do the trick. You can serve it even with spaghetti if you want.

    *Oleg heads towards the electric guitar to peek closer in awe*

    Yaroslav: *to Vanna* Hey, I like Franz Ferdinand too! My favorite song of them one is 'Do You Want To'. It always remember me from that time when we got into an art gallery with Misha. We even believed that the paintings were on 3-D or something like that! The painter was an asshole, though. He began to argue with Misha because he figured out a bunny from one of his messy paintings. Can you believe that a thirty-five year old dude gets an argument with a six year old about a painting? Worse thing was, Misha argued way better than him, but we three got expelled from the gallery!

    Oleg:*to Paula* Indeed, a talking sheep is a scary thing. Way more if it is an alien. I think ghosts are way scarier, though. Which one do you think is scarier than the other, ghosts or aliens? Slava and I agreed about ghosts being the scariest. Next are the wild animals with teeth or fangs. Later comes the big bullies. *to Kes* I find sad that you have to do stuff on those conditions, being forced to kill and stuff like that. Papa did that too, before we realized that such life was destroying us from the inside. We chose as family to leave that life behind, and find a peaceful life. It was not easy, and we still have stuck some of the old habits, but we haven't looked back. Even if that means for us to be poorer than most of other people, or having to go away from our old country. I hope that someday you can have a choice on the matter.

    (Seeker morphs into a wee-little-pony cartoon unicorn, with features hinting at Mihail, and blue glow in its mane. It turns to Avery.) : These were popular representations of unicorns in Truman's time. (morphs into Jack, and speaks in his voice) : You refer to the JackKnight? ...one moment (eyes roll back, then resumes Jack avatar) : Ah, Jack Knight, yes. He greeted us when I brought Truman here. (morphs into Yaroslav, speaks in his voice) : I can assume any form, any universe. I Am of The Eternum. My will is reality. (In a flowing, non-jarring display, quickly morphs into every character that has been in the bar, in order, then morphs into a few objects, then into a my-little-Pyotr. Finally settling on the form of young-anakin-skyewalker. Turns to Jasmine, and speaks anakin-voice) : I will choose this form, if you don't mind the blue glow of my hair?

    Truman : Oh, brother! At least you didn't show off when you were just a machine. Why don't you just turn into a Mag-moeba, and show them something real?

    Seeker : Very well, Truman. (climbs on table) : I present you - Mag-moeba!
    (suddenly becomes a clear, gelatinous blob, and drops to the table with a splatt. puddles on the table, with a small black box in the middle, then ooze from the table to form a translucent labrador retriever with the black box as a collar. it walks to Truman and sits, wagging its tail)

    Truman : Good boy, Alpha!

    Alpha : Woof!

    Oleg:*grossed at the gelatinous blob shape* I regret having asked...

    Yaroslav:
    It's not so bad! I mean, I would prefer dealing with the glowing-blue haired kid, but it's an awesome show! Dogs, though, aren't my favorite, cats neither. Specially cats *frowns*.

    Oleg
    : I noticed that Seeker shaped a Pyotr. That means, Mihail was carrying it after Kindergarten.

    Yaroslav: True! And that means he smuggled him again! We'll talk serious about it! Maybe we are pampering him too much and he's becoming a rebel!

    Oleg:
    We were worse at our six. Do you remember how many times we punched Gogol for being a moron? You plucked out most of his milk teeth with your fists.

    Yaroslav:
    *reddens* But he deserved it, because he was a bully! It's not the same! And you helped by kicking Gogol's ass all along!

    Oleg:
    Of course. You are my brother, no matter what. And I didn't like Gogol neither.

    *both smile in a soft but creepy way*

    Yaroslav: *to Alpha* Hey, don't do that... I'm not changing my mind... in no way! I mean, it's not that I'm wishing to have a puppy and I'm faking I don't because I can't have one at home! *stares firmly to Alpha, but can't fake a hard face longer* Stop that glance! Oh man... Alright, alright! You win! Yes, I love dogs, and always have wanted a puppy, I said it! Are you happy now? *crosses his arms*

    Oleg: At last you confess it. I'm proud of you. *to Truman* I take that the gooey dog is your friend, mister? I wonder what kind of mischief have you done with him. You look a sort of important person, and I wonder how many times you have been in trouble for having a friend like that one. *to everyone* Now, maybe I could learn to play a little tune by-

    *Two girls, of fifteen and thirteen year old with long braided brown hair, dressing expensive autumn wear of the year gets close talking in between. The older one talks unrestrained to the younger*

    Stefania:
    ...so I told Kevin that Marcie wanted to give him a secret party at the cafeteria, and he told me that Silvie wanted to do the same too! But someone told Joshua about it, and he got so jealous that he wanted to fight with Kevin at the exit of the school, but I wouldn't allow it, not in a such special day for Marcie, and I convinced Joshua to not mess the whole business! But Mister Shawshank was near us and began to ask about what was all of that, and I had to tell him about the party or he would rat us in front of Principal, but I asked him, and I'm so, so good at convincing people, that we managed to throw the party anyway, and even got some minutes from Religion class to help Marcie, and everything was according to the plan! But Joshua was really, really riled up with Kevin, and tried to... *notices Henrietta* Oh my god... OH MY GOD! WHAT AN AMAZING DRESS! And look at that hair, and the details, and... it's so regal! *shrieks in emotion*

    Clara: Wait, did we arrive to a thematic park? I didn't see the entrance. There are so strange attires here, like in a retro-museum of modern art! *looks at Elsie raising an eyebrow* That dress is so 'dustbowl' style... *looks at Kes with amazed* now, THAT's style! I'm sure she's an actress of some sort of spy movie! *to everybody* Hello! Is there a gift shop nearby? Or someone who can give us a map, for-

    Stefania:
    Clara, take me a photo with the princess! I MUST show it to my friends at the Acting Workshop! Hurry up! *gets at Henrietta's side, posing*

    Clara:
    Okay, I'm taking out my smartphone. Shall we take us a selfie or-

    Stefania: Selfie? Are you serious? Why would I want to ruin my photo with a selfie? I'll take you a photo if I must, but not a selfie! Show some class in front of strangers, dear! *keeps posing*

    Clara:
    *gets reddened, but attempts to take a photo* Whatever you say, Stefania... Oh dear, my smartphone is dead here! Maybe it's the battery. *smiles faintly while faking concern*

    Stefania:
    No way! Are you dumb? I'll use mine then! *takes out her smartphone* What? Is dead too! No battery?! Is there a photographer here? *to Truman* Hey, mister! You look like a photographer, could you please take me a photo with the princess here? Vertical angle, full body, I need to show her dress with detail. Of course, you must take my best angle which is this one *poses again *.

    *Oleg and Yaroslav glare at the girls with disgust, frowning. Clara notices it.*

    Clara: Hey, sister, I smell garbage nearby, and I know from where the smell comes. The twin derelicts are here!

    Stefania: Dear, we don't talk about derelict people in front of strangers, or do you want that Mother takes our allowance again? But true, their smell is terrible, as always. That's what happens when you bath in a toilet and don't switch clothing in a whole week. *to Yaroslav* So, couldn't your lazy father buy you a little of shampoo? Or new clothing? I'm sure it would help to mask your... reek.

    Yaroslav:Your nose is wrong, witch! Let me fix it with my fists!*Oleg restrains him*

    Stefania: *rejoices* Hahaha, as brute as always, you low class derelict. Offering fists to a girl above your condition. But well, uneducated people is like that. Pure animal.

    *Stefania and Clara giggle in delight as Oleg reddens his face*

    Truman (shakes his head, having seen this shit before. Notices Alpha, at attention - tail up, looking to Slava. Alpha then looks to Truman, and puts ears back.) : Alright, Alpha, mission and parameters: detach subunit 4; 'Companion', reporting to Yaroslav et.Nevsky. You know how I feel about this one.
    (Black box atop dog collar pops a spark as a piece of it comes off. The piece sloughs onto the floor, as the outer layer of Alpha slides off and forms into another smaller wiggly puppydog, with small black box collar. Alpha-puppy bounces over to Slava, puts his paws up, then turns to the girls. It quickly morphs into a five foot Pyotr, with a roar.) : RAAAW!!
    (shrinks back down into Alphapup and stands to Slava to look up at wagging tail) : Erff!

    Truman : That, boys, is a one kilogram Alpha-Class mag-moeba automaton. Yours to command, if you prove yourselves worthy to The Dignity Law. It has three sub-units, if you want to play hockey, or anything else. It can become anything from liquid to steel. Have fun!

    Vanna: Hey, hey, hey! No fighting in here! You two were being ever so polite until they came in! *Turns to the girls* And no class warfare here! If a King's daughter can talk civilly to them, then so can you.

    Henrietta: And I am very confused. What is it that you were trying to do?

    Vanna: They were trying to take a picture of you. Remember the photographs? When that girl was showing pictures of her cat? I think they think you're an actress.

    Henrietta: Well, I'm not. I am Princess Maria Henrietta of Cavallia. I believe that you are from a different era than myself. I am from 1732. I have seen that in the future you wear much less clothing. I shall be happy to pose with you, though. What would you like me to do, now that you have, of course, finished fighting? And what is a selfie?

    Vanna: I can answer that. It's a photo that you take of yourself. They were very popular back in 2014.

    Elsie: People do that in the 21st century? No wonder you left! And excuse me? *Looks down at blouse and skirt* Dustbowl? I don't know what that means, but it hardly sounds nice!

    Vanna: You're a tad wide of the mark there. Dustbowl era was 1930s America, twenty years after Elsie's time. You'd be closer with our stuff. I'm sorry. I've just realised I never introduced myself. I'm Vanna. I'm fifteen years old, and I travelled back from 2014 to 1934. My friends haven't had such an experience, so they just know the '30s. I'm sure the room could give you a phone charger and socket if you ask for one, and I'll photograph you both with Henrietta. I'm sorry I got so snappy at you. Just watch out for Elsie - she can be a bit sharp.

    Elsie: I beg your pardon? And I'll have you know I'm not a bit American. I've never even left Devon except for two trips to London with my Aunt. *Sighs* But welcome to the chatroom, and no more fighting or I'll sort you all out. I broke a girl's arm with a hockey stick once.

    Stefania and Clara: *freaked out at Alphapup's roar* EEEEK!

    Yaroslav:
    *at Alphapup* Aww, look at that wiggly tail! Good boy! Come here! *grabs him and tickle his belly* Oleshka, come and pat the puppy! *to Truman* Thanks, mister! That Dignity Law sounds as something really good for the people! What does it do? If you could explain it in simple terms, I would be grateful. You see, I'm not too smart for a classroom, but I like to learn!

    *Oleg gets close with caution to Alphapup, and timidly pats his head. After that, shivers with nervousness*

    Yaroslav: *to Alphapup* Come on boy, let's play at something! I wish I had a ball for you to catch!

    Stefania:
    That creature is a dangerous beast! I'm making a full complain at this place's management right now! Where's the book for complaining? I want to talk with the manager! If Father was here, customer's service would have arrived instantly!

    Oleg: *to Stefania, smiling* There's no place in the universe to deal with someone so vile and spiteful as you and your siblings. You are pure evil.

    Clara: *to Elsie, faking an apologizing mood* Oh, I'm so sorry that you have felt that way about my words, darling. Is only that we are so used to wear the best in clothing from our wardrobe that I'm shocked when I see lack of... variety *smirks*. We even have invited those two little criminals, I mean brats, to go get some free clothing at our school's charity, so they can look decent for a while. *to Oleg, frowning* But you, you must answer me first what did you do to Eric! MY Eric! He doesn't speak at me anymore, and I know it's your fault!

    Oleg:*smiles* Yes, it is. I saved him from you. He's too kind and cool for being a harpy's boyfriend. Get used to it and move on.

    Clara:
    Never! What did you do to break us apart, eh?! Answer! Is he with another girl? Who is she!

    Oleg:*makes an 'innocent' face* If you only knew who's the lucky one, hehe...

    *Clara turns violet of anger*

    Stefania:
    *to Truman, visibly upset* Mister photographer, I must say that your service has been deplorable at best! *draws her smartphone* I'll post in every single social media about this! You'll see how much impact I can get from my social network on Twatter and Spatchat! I have more than ten thousand followers and I make tendencies as fast as I say 'your career is over'! *struggles with her smartphone*

    Yaroslav:
    *to Stefania* Your cellphone is dead as your brain, you stupid! *to Vanna* Don't waste time being nice to them! The truth is, they're evil and abusive vultures! They not only treat like garbage to anyone who has less money than them, but also hurt their ten year old brother and little sisters! And their father is even worse, because he is an abusive prick too! The last week, they hit our friend Jan so hard that his ribs were blue!

    Stefania: That's a lie! The little bast... I mean, Jan fell from a staircase! And it's not your business, anyway!

    Yaroslav:
    *holds Alphapuppy while talking at Vanna* Whatever you do, stay away from those nasty girls. We can endure their slurs, because we're used to them. But don't let them deceive you, they're beyond evil and mean! Every time our friend comes to play with us and appears with a new bruise or scar, I...I really think on doing very violent things! And let's leave it at that, before I do something drastic!

    Kes: *gesturing at Clara* I like this one! She's got some style and some sass!

    Avery: Holy crap it's a puppy. Kate, we are in heaven!

    Katherine: I prefer cats, actually... *to Stefania* I did some photography a while back. If you have a camera I could take a picture if you want?

    Avery: *concerned by the tension in the room* Hey guys, come on! *shoots a spell from two fingers which crackles against the ceiling - harmlessly replicating a sparkler* Quit the squabbling. Sit down, have a drink, eat some food and be civil. We all just accepted Kes is a murderer without fighting about it, now relax.

    Kes: Okay Avery, I'm going to need you to never speak again, please. *a whiskey appears in her hand and she begins drinking*

    Katherine: *anxiously wraps her cardigan around her* I'm, uh...I'm sure nobody needs to be angry. Do you guys...want some tea? *offers teacups towards Clara and Stefania with a polite smile as the sparkler fades*

    Avery: Yaroslav, Oleg, why don't you come over here and we can continue talking about guitars and dogs? What tune was it you wanted to learn?

    Elsie: "Variety" yourself! Everyone in the 21st century wears the same clothes! You all wear jeans, like dustmen! You look like your father's a coal miner and your mother had to alter his clothes for you, since you couldn't afford fabric for a proper skirt! And who are you to swank about in the latest fashions as though you were twenty-one? Fashion isn't for us to worry about. Why, if someone came into school looking like they'd come straight from Paris, Miss Everdene would send them straight back home again to put some proper clothes on.

    Vanna: Elsie, that's enough. There isn't a complaints book or customer service here. What you see is what you get. I'm the closest there is to management, since I've been here the longest-

    Bonnie: And you like to take charge.

    Vanna: Shut up, Bonnie. I say, even if you think you're something to write home about, you're the ones who are causing the most trouble here, and therefore the ones who're most likely to get evicted if it comes to that. So you can keep a civil tongue in your head, or we can remove you. I'm sure one of Henrietta's guards can rise to the occasion.

    Jasmine: They remind me of Cornelia Cartwright. Ever so rich and frightfully spoiled, but not very bright.

    Henrietta: And as for your father, mine is the king of Cavallia, and he can get people to do whatever he wants. He has taught me that we must strive to understand people of all walks of life, if you were his daughters, he would be very angry and ashamed. I retract my offer of a pholo-graph.

    Jasmine: Photograph.

    Henrietta: It matters little. What I am saying is that if you wish to play the class game, I can beat you at every turn. Even your charitable donations are given with bad grace. In my eyes, you are lower than these boys, lower than even the poorest peasant. I do not know what Twitter and Snapchat are, but surely you cannot have as much influence as a royal family. I had thought you merely shallow, but it seems that you are spiteful as well.

    Elsie: I think Truman's career is over, anyway. And that puppy's not dangerous, don't be silly! I wish Vina were here. *An Irish Wolfhound puppy appears, up to Elsie's hip and tongue lolling out delightedly. Elsie squats down and it licks her face noisily as she begins stroking it* Look, Vina! New friends! Those two girls want to play with you! Go on! *Vina bounds up to Stefania and Clara, barking loudly*

    Paula: Everyone, that's enough! I think what we've learned here is that our author's created a regular set of fire-crackers, quite without meaning to. I'm sorry you had to see that, Katherine. Let's all talk about guitars and dogs. Would you like to hear about my puppy?

    Vanna: Don't leave me out of the guitar conversation! Mine's been ready for ages!

    *Stefania and Clara run shrieking in terror, being pursued by Elsie's puppy*EEEKK!!!

    Yaroslav: Hahaha! Yeah, play with them, Vina! They love to be drooled all over! Now I wish to have a camera, hehehe!

    Oleg: Hehe, yeah, those vultures were in need for some exercise. *to Avery* I'll gladly go with you to talk about guitars and music. We could talk about... favorite genre? I like heavy metal like Dio and Black Sabbath, some of glam rock from David Bowie, but also enjoy my brother's music, which is more traditional. A good Kozachok is always nice to dance and perform, and we have taught our baby brother Mihail to dance like that. Also to dance Lezginkas. Yaroslav is way a better dancer than I, though. He can even dance with shashkas and khanjkali. And I would like to learn playing the intro of 'The Width of a Circle', or something alik. 'Holy diver' is kinda difficult for me.

    *Stefania grabs Clara and uses her as human shield against Vina's puppy paws and licking, both screaming in terror*

    Yaroslav:
    *cuddles Alphapup, and talks to Vanna and Avery* Papa taught us to defend ourselves, but also to honor our cossack heritage. I love to dance, too! And to sing traditional songs. Oleg sings well too, but he likes more modern music than me. My cousin Dimitri had a bayan and a bandura, and taught us how to play some nice songs like 'Korobeiniki', or 'Svetit mesyats', so I would prefer a bayan to practice better! What about you? Which styles do you prefer for playing? *to Paula* And yep, I want to have a puppy someday, but Papa has forbidden it, because they are expensive to care and feed, and Mihail is afraid of then since he was bitten by a mean big dog. Tell us about your puppy, then!

    *Stefania leaves Clara to deal with Vina, and gets close gasping*

    Stefania: Someone please stop this beast! My autumn set has been drooled by that monster! I swear I'll... EEEKK! *Vina's paws and drool are over Stefania's jeans*

    Clara: *to Katherine* Now I need a cup of tea for a change! And definitively, I prefer cats better too! *grabs a cup while Stefania attempts to run away from Vina without success*

    (Alphapup wiggles cutely and licks Slava. It feels just like warm puppy-lick, but no slobber) : Erff! schlrrp schlrrp.
    Truman : Oh, The Dignity Law is just a really complicated version of The Golden Rule. If you want to play ball, just say his name, then say 'detach ball'. Just remember, he'll get smaller, but you can give the ball commands, too. It can be hilarious! It can be three smaller things, too. He has a moral code so you can say defend, but not attack. Try it, you'll learn how he works.
    Alphapup : Rerf!
    (Alpha looks at *waves*) : Mmph?

    Katherine: I'd love to hear about your puppy, Paula! *to Yaroslav* That's sad about Mihail. Maybe if you guys got a sweet little pup like Vina over there, *smiling* he would realise most dogs just want to play. *drinking her tea, to Clara* My mum used to have a cat when she was young but I didn't have the pleasure of growing up with animals. I've always preferred smaller companions though. It might be fun to have a bird...

    Avery: I didn't grow up with pets either - I wish I had. Some mates of mine have dogs though. Weird...I always assumed wizards would have cats. *to Yaroslav and Vanna* I kind of taught myself - needed the distraction. I mostly play acoustic versions of modern rock songs but I started by playing country music. I've got to be honest though, I mostly just mess around to kill time and enjoy myself. I couldn't be in a band. I bet you guys are way better! Why don't you play something? Hey Kate, do you play any instruments?

    Katherine: Uh, yes, the piano. I don't think I was awful at it in school, and it was great fun. I had to practice in school hours because Dad wouldn't have approved, but since living with Mr Marshall, I play it more often. *smiles* I'm really lucky that he bought me a piano. I couldn't afford one myself. I've never touched a guitar though., sorry.

    Cis: Oh, Elsie, call her off, do!

    Elsie: No jolly fear! She's not a dangerous dog, she just wants to play. Maybe they'll change out of those silly clothes and into something more normal now. She's an Irish Wolfhound and her real name's Rovina, but really, that's quite a silly name. She used to belong to my headmistress, Miss Everdene, who's a bit eccentric, so she named her. She gave her to me to teach me responsibility. She originally bought her for the school, but she'd bought another puppy as well, called Piper, and since he was an Irish Wolfhound as well, she was told she'd never have the space to keep them both once they grew up. I love Vina so much - never got on as well with Piper - I've known her for nearly four months now, she was my first friend.

    Paula: I have a little mongrel puppy. She's called Eleanora - my mother named her, I wanted to go for something more normal, like Polly - and she has the softest red fur! She's tiny, and she loves being stroked. My brother said she was really annoying at first, but now we scrap over taking her for walks. She's really playful as well - toss her a ball, and she'll be happy for the rest of the day! I miss her so much when we come back to school.

    Henrietta: My sisters and I share a little poodle puppy called Velours. He is the sweetest little thing ever, and quite playful. He often destroys our cushions, and we must have new ones made. Often, the servants walk him, but we like to do it ourselves sometimes. He is simply wonderful to stroke, with all that fluffy white fur. He dines with us, and we often feed him our scraps in addition to his own meal. The problem is, my sisters Charlotta and Giovanna are too soft for him, and feed him too often, so that he is getting quite fat. Cecilia has told them that they must stop, before we mistake him for a cloud!

    Vanna: I get the same about wizards and cats, Avery. I bought a kitten with my birthday money - a black one as well, with bright green eyes - and I didn't know why people were telling me it was so appropriate! I didn't know I was a witch at the time. I named her Emerald because of her eyes, and she's part of the Pets' Club, so she can stay at school. I taught myself guitar as well. Mum gave me mine for my eleventh birthday, because I was so keen on the idea of getting one. I'd learned a couple of basic chords in music lessons at school, and I was fascinated. We lived near an arcade for a bit - did I mention we used to move house a lot? - and I used to spend all my pocket money on Guitar Hero. I was so good at it, I hope I haven't lost my skill! I taught myself using YouTube videos. I'd pick a piece, then I'd look up how to play it. My favourite's Franz Ferdinand, but I really like the Arctic Monkeys and the Fratellis, and the Kaiser Chiefs have done loads of good stuff as well. I know you're supposed to start with Smoke on the Water, but the first piece I ever learned was Seven Nation Army. I used to busk after school to earn a bit of extra money. We weren't in poverty, but we did need whatever we could get. Mum didn't like it, but I loved every second. I used to take requests, so I learned a lot of classics as well - House of the Rising Sun, Mr. Brightside, things like that. I'd have loved to be in a band, but because I moved around so much, it was hard to make friends, and of course, no-one at St. Edith's knows what rock is! I could play "Take Me Out", if you want. It's my favourite song.

    Bobby: I remember Guitar Hero

    Bob: Me too!

    Robert: Guitar Hero sucked!

    Bob: Init.

    Bobby: It was alright for what it was, but guitar is better.

    Bob: I remember Guitar Hero back at the arcades, I was in the Trocadero (big amusement arcades in Central London), and I didn't know what it was and paid £2.00 just to be told I suck at guitar - it's not at all like guitar.
    I play guitar.
    You play guitar?

    Bobby: Ha! - I know the Trocadero, that's where I first saw it, that happened to me too, I play guitar, discovered Guitar Hero, and sucked lol.

    Robert:
    OMG I know the Trocdero!!! Small world! I play guitar, and I saw it there too, lol, back in 2004, and I tried it and didn't like it, lost my £2.00 lol.

    Robert: < - ~London here.

    Bob: LOL

    Bob: Same

    Bobby: Lol, omg, same.

    Bobby: Where in London are you?

    Bob: South, South Central, but all around.

    Robert: Between Croydon and Westminster but everywhere really.

    Bobby: Omg, no way, I'm from Thornton Heath and Soho but I too get around London.

    Robert: Wow!

    Bob: LOL, small world!

    Talking Toilet: HELLO

    Talking Toilet: It's such a sausage fest in here.

    Robert: Hello Nikita! I 'm from Thornton Heath too.

    Bobby: Hi Nikita, I'm from Thornton Heath, what road?

    Talking Toilet: Fuck!

    Toilet Toilet:
    I wish I was in Thornton Heath now.

    Bobby: Lol Talking Toilet.

    Robbie: Hi, I'm from Thornton Heath too! - but that road that's America.

    Talking Toilet: I've heard of that.

    Talking Toilet: What a load of shit that is.

    Robbie: It's not shit!

    Talking Toilet: Trust me, it's shit.
