i wish i invented the internet

One bed and chest of drawers each. bookself and window for roof. Located under lake.






8/5/2008 . Edited by Zina Nevirone, 3/23/2009 #1

Effy entered the dorm silently, dragging her wheeled suitcase behind her. The room had an eerie greenish glow from the light shining through the lake above, making Effy's pale features seem more sickly still. Within a matter of minutes, she had unloaded her few posessions and simple clothes into the chest of drawers, barely filling it halfway. The mousy-haired 13-year-old flopped onto the bed with a book taken from the shelf and waited for her roomates to arrive; she looked forward to getting to know them. After reading a few pages, the door opened, and Effy looked up into the eyes of the newcomer.

Ranz peered in.. "H-Hello..?" He took out his cheap clothes, and his one prized posession: his brown bear. He's had it since he was born, but he's 16 now so he left it in his room.

he tried to keep his eyes on Effy.. unsure of what she might do... of what he might do.... Iv'e taken way too many philosophy classes... and i probably read too much too....

Without considering her actions, as she was wont to do, Effy looked into Ranz's eyes. She didn't bother to look at his facial expressions, as she found this to be unreliable. Eventually, she stopped and her gaze returned to her book. Without looking away, she addressed her new roomate.

"You have the potential to do great things with your power, but as long as you doubt yourself, you will never realise this. How sad." All this without any major emotion except boredom seeping into her voice.

Ranz was taken aback.. "Y-You read minds? that's cool... I move things with my mind.. but you probably know everything about me already.." Annoying.. that power.. but... useful... and I could sure use a few friends that at least have some common characteristics to myself if I'm ever going to avoid being killed here..

(( yes I know, this is OOC, This is Ranz's thoughts and regular text is actions or something... I know.))

Ranz was glad to have someone sorta like him, a book loving mind freak. He laid down on hisbed and brought out a simple dark red book, and began reading it..

9/5/2008 #7

Effy glanced up and noted the book in Ranz's hands. She wondered what the book was like, and began to peer into his eyes to check. But something in his face made her stop- he was displaying some form of friendship towards her, more that most bothered. So she would treat him with some courtesy as he deserved.

"So, what're you reading?" The attempted casual tone sounded strange even as Effy said it, and she realised just how difficult this socialising thing would be.

Ranz looked up? She's not staring into my eyes directly.... she's not... is this a courtesy? a sign of friendship? God I wish I listened to those councillers when they attempted to teach me what social skills were.....

He decided it would be rude to keep quiet, so he told her flatly.. even though he was trying to be casual.. "Mysteries of the Loch Ness Monster. Reading it for my pleasure.. and perhaps some of the sea life mentioned could help me in Botany class.." he decided to end with a question.. "What classes are you taking? I'm taking Botany, Combat, and I'm looking for a philosophy class.."

9/5/2008 #9

Wait, what was this? It seemed that Effy was actually taking part in a conversation as opposed to a monotonous exchange. Best to keep it moving, then...

"Botany, Potions, Arithmetic and Philosophy. So what kind of skills will your combat class involve?" Effy couldn't believe how long it was taking to get this information- how did people ever get to know each other without hearing thoughts?

"I think I'll go in your potions class.

Looks like we'll have three out of four classes together, nice." He sighed.. "I'm considering dropping my Combat class, The only reason I took it was to give me better control over my power over fire..

and my telekinesis... but it seems it's all about melee now-a-days... oh well.." He smiled.. "I hate math.... but I might sign up just to see you" he smiled... She seemed like a really nice girl..

9/6/2008 #11

Effy raised her eyebrows a little. He seemed to like her, to the point of wanting to spend time with her unnecessarily. And for the life of her, she couldn't work out why- as a rule, Effy tended to shut people out, treat them as inferiors. Well, it meant it was easier not to feel guilty about reading their minds- as was the case right now. Could she really afford to make friends? Or would that be her weakness...

Effy was surpirsed to find that she liked making this new friend so much, she didn't care. Trying to forget all she'd learned from reading Ranz's mind, she smiled back.

"You don't have to, you might get sick of me," she joked... wait, she made a joke? Effy was beginning to wonder if she actually knew herself at all.

((From the Yellow Dorm.))

Kaytlyn knocked on the door of the dorm and waited for an answer, not really wanting to impose.

((hehe...yeah right...))

9/7/2008 #13

Effy rose from her bed irritably and answered the door to a tall redhead. Glaring up at her, she forgot the promise made to herself to get to know people and looked into the girls eyes. But as soon as she did this, her head began to throb as if someone was inflating a porcupine inside her head. Glaring resentfully at the tall girl, she spoke.

"What's your name, why are you here and what's wrong with you?" Effy hadn't mastered the finer points of polite conversation yet.

9/7/2008 #14

"Name's Kaytlyn, got bored and lonely in my dorm and there;s nothing wrong with me." Kaytlyn smiled softly and answered all her questions.

9/7/2008 #15

Ranz looked up.. "Um.. hello.. ... Kaytlyn... What do you need?" he got up and stood beside Effy.. almost like backing her up... but he didn't want anything to spark here.. Two girls and a guy in a dorm... he didn't want to start anything as it seemed as if something was going on between Effy and Kayt. He felt tempted to grab Effy's hand.... something unusual.. what the heck was wrong with him!

"E-Effy.. do you know her?"

((LOL I made it sound as if Effy and Kayt were going to fight over Ranz although that wasn't what I wanted to imply.

Here is what I WANTED to imply (but sucked at) Ranz thinks Effy is angry at kayt (for whatever reason) by how Effy greeted this redhead.

Ranz doesn't want a fight to break out because of the hostility of Effy, and the stuck up know-it-all.. ness... of Kayt.

I hope I got the real point across this time xD random question. Does this dorm have room for 2 more people? or are Effy and Ranz taking up the only two spots?

It seems to me Each dorm can hold around 4 people?))

9/8/2008 . Edited 9/8/2008 #16

((I dunno, I think she came from another dorm to find friends... By the way, Effy's 13 so Ranz is probably towering over her funnily lqtm.))

"No, I just can't... you know." Effy shook her head, still reeling from not being able to read this girl's mind. Still, she took a deep breath and addressed Katlyn calmly. "Sorry about that, I'm just adjusting to some things..." She trailed off, having found nothing else to say. Silence descended like an unwanted parachutist.

Kaytlyn looked at them both and smiled softly. "If I'm imposing I can leave..."

Ranz knew instantly what she meant. he looked into Effy's eyes.. he focused as hard as he could to try and put his thoughts in her head..

She's form another dorm, she doesn't belong here.. are you ok? Did you get hurt or something when you tried to read her mind.. i know I sometimes get a very strong and sudden pain in my head if I try to lift something without focusing first..

he hoped she would receive the message... this was kinda of cool... telepathic messaging.... if only he could learn to be able to focus more then thirty seconds, and not have to look into her eyes to force his thoughts into hers..

"I'm sorry.. we've just had a long day.. maybe you should go... if only for a little while.. give us a break try coming over tomorrow... ok?"

By then we should have some things figured out...

Kaytlyn nodded sadly and walked off, then turned round, "I'm in the Yellow Dorm if you want me." And with that she walked off.

((To the Yellow Dorm.))

9/8/2008 #20

So that ruled out the possibility of her own powers malfunctioning... so that meant that this girl definitely had something wrong with her head, and she wasn't letting on what it was. Effy decided to get to know Kaytlyn and find out.

"It's OK. So... how are you?" She sent a look at Ranz to say, go along with it, OK?

9/8/2008 #21
Jaded Aegis

Ranz didn't mean to make her so sad... something jerked inside of him watching her leave like that... probably guilt..

"I'm .. fine, you busy later? ...."

((Sorry.. Booolover's post literally just appeared after I posted... -.- dumb FP. This wouldn't happen using CMS or some other forum...

You guys didn't leave did you?

Step-mom is getting rather aggraviating.....))

FUCK! I g2g..... I g2g empty the basement................ FUCK! nasty job...))

((Kaytlyn's gone to charrie's are good at that...))

9/8/2008 #23

((Confusingness! How about we try to wait for like a minute for other posts to avoid confusion? Poor Kaytlyn!))

Effy shrugged, "I'll probably just be getting settled in, read a little. You?" Effy was distracted, her head filled with questions- was Kaytlyn OK? Why couldn't she read her mind? And what did Ranz think about this?

9/8/2008 #24
Jaded Aegis

((Sorry.. I swore a few times... I'm allowed a short break because I hit my head several times... (I'm 6 ft tall... I'm 16.. and I hate our basement with a freakin passion. I pick up a couple of garbage bags.. hit my head off the roof... hard, then hit it off the corner of a table as I'm reeling, then when I recover enough to bring the bags to the staircase I hit my head off the low part of the staircase roof... ARGH!!!))

Ranz sighed.. "You like to read too then? Cool..." he finally decided to cut through the small talk, he went and sat on the edge of his bed, next to Effy's. "Did you hear my thoughts when I tried to project them to you? Are you ok? He looked deeply into her eyes.... she was beautiful in her own way... everyone was....

((Hopefully Beth can stay on for a rly long time...... that way After I done cleaning we can still RP.... ...... great.. you both left me..... .

I'ma go clean after listening to one more song. but I should be on after I'm done... but I'll need to do the kitchen b4 supper..))

9/8/2008 . Edited 9/8/2008 #25

((Hehe... I mean... oh dear... that wasn't Schadenfreude or anything *shifty eyes*. Might not stay on too long, staring at the screen might give me a headache...))

Effy averted her eyes, explaining in case this offended him, "I'm trying not to read minds so much right now... it gets in the way of gaining any social skills." She smiled wryly, and continued, "It's weird how I couldn't look into Kaytlyn's mind, though. It's like it was so messed up it hurt to see it..."

As she spoke, Effy felt very comforted to know that she could talk to Ranz about anything. She'd never been able to connect with people her own age, and adults just patronised her unnecessarily. But Ranz was truly genuine- she'd been able to see that when she first looked in his eyes.

9/8/2008 #26
Jaded Aegis

Ranz sighed, "I think I get what you mean. I'm sort of... trying to gain a few social skills myself...."

He looked up from staring at the floor in front of him - "Kaytlyn could be hurt... mentally, emotionally or otherwise.. either that or maybe she has powers like you.. and blocked you or something... I don't really know.. But one thing I do know....." I'm taking a rather big risk here....

He paused for a moment.. then started again. "I'm glad to be your friend, to have someone who has experienced pain like me.. Being looked down upon by everyone... a social outcast, the target of everyone's anger and ridicule.. It's.... hard for me to say this but....."

He couldn't explain his feelings for her... but he would try.. even though he might look foolish..

"I-I.... like you as more then a...." a what.. a friend? a roach? a wall? what!? "m-more then a friend... to me.. your beautiful... everyone... especially you is beautiful in their own way.. and I'm sorry if i sound like a total idiot... this is more then I've ever really said to a person at any one moment in time.."

((I g2g start cleaning soon... but maybe you could go then come back in about.... an hour? (don't leave right this second.. I'll let you know when I g2g..))

((Fine go... w/e... I'll go clean as soon as I'm Blue is over.. in approx.... 1min... maybe just over that.))

9/8/2008 . Edited 9/8/2008 #27

((Wowser! Effy's not used to dealing with people, explaining this))

Effy was stunned. All her life, she'd only seen this sort of thing in the experience of others- always second hand, from a separate point of view. She had no idea of how to react now- what to say. She cared about Ranz, of course- his good nature had rubbed off on her, making her care more about people she once had nothing but disdain for. But no- Effy wasn't ready for this, and she didn't know him very well yet. Hell, she was barely ready for any interaction with society. That was why Effy had to say what she said.

"I-I think I like you too. But I can't do something like this right now. I've barely started trying to be something like normal, and I can tell you it won't end well. So for now... can we get to know each other, and just get used to this?" Effy's face was hidden behind a curtain of pale brown hair while she waited to find out how she'd handled her first emotional dilemna.

9/8/2008 #28

Ranz sighed.. I knew it was too soon... once again I screw everything up......

"I-I understand.. I ... was too soon.... again.." again... and again... whenever I try to share my bubble of mind with someone else I'm always too soon... "Maybe once we get to know eachother? I kinda have some self exploration to do... I've never felt things like this before.. I've.. changed.. somehow... I can't really explain it... I finally find someone who really understands me... who is like me....

He laid back on his bed... completely unsure of himself.. completely confused... Did Effy like me? like I like her? I could use my mind and see for myself perhaps.... but that would be....... mean.... I only just earned her trust and I just bruised our friendship.. but I have to know....

"Effy... when I tried to project my thoughts into yours.... did it work?" it's simply telepathy... on a mental level instead of a physical one... hopefully it worked..

9/8/2008 . Edited 9/8/2008 #29

Effy saw Ranz's face fall a mile, and though she felt guilty for this, she knew it was for the best.

"It's OK. I just think we both need to get through some stuff before either of us can start something. But I'll tell you something," Effy smiled in a way that made her seem more excited than ever before, "When that happens, nothing can stop us. Then the world's going to to be amazed by the two of us."

Effy stood up and left the room quickly. Because although she'd appeared confident, her heart was beating faster than it ever had.
