Good news, I'm not failing out of my cooking course tomorrow! Bad news, it's only because I nearly sliced a chunk off my finger practicing for it and needed stitches.

It's days like today that I truly believe this ADHD is both a blessing AND a curse.

Yo so are you gonna allow weebshit faceclaims again this time? Because if not, I may already be screwed.
Yeah ok, what the hell.

Who's ready for an inexplicable burst of focus? I wasn't. I had plans for tonight. Instead, Marco.

"You know what? I think I might." Jeremy said with a grin. "It's probably about time we had a big get together with the whole CREW again. It's been far too long since I got a chance to call someone the wrong name..."

He raised a brow when he started hearing shouting however, and that along with Lee's words had him turning to see what was going on in the courtyard, his left eye almost appearing to spin in it's socket as he did.

"Barbara, I'm going to assume the idea of our orchestra teachers holding those kids at gunpoint makes sense to you for some reason, but I'm fairly certain that's not them. I checked back up on the staff on my way down here, and none of them have wings. Considering the fact that one of those men do, I think it's safe to say this may be a little more serious than you think."

He rolled his shoulder, placing his bag on the ground and opening it. His left eye swiveled around again, darting to four specific points as the iris flashed an unearthly yellow-orange.

"Luckily, I believe in a rather unformal method of teaching compared to other teachers, so even though you probably set this up for the kids to use somehow, I think I might crash the party myself. Seek."

And with his command, a large cloud of runic paper tags flew from the bag, separating outwards until they reached their targets, converging around them in four distinct groups. However, despite how much easier it might have been to just take them all out properly, Jeremy still felt like it could be a good learning opportunity. That was why, rather than targeting the gunmen, the tags simply attached themselves to their guns, wrapping around them until there was nearly no metal left unexposed.

"Burst." Stray commanded, bringing his left hand up in front of his face and making a small sign with his fingers. With his spell, the guns that had formerly been pointed at the terrified teens crumpled and bent in the hostage takers hands, becoming little more than twisted metal.

"Alright!" He shouted out to the chaperone team, his voice booming out surprisingly far across the campus. "I've done my part to even the odds a little for you! Now it's in your hands, so show those brats what you heroes've got, ya hear me?!"

Graham, hearing his teachers words, didn't even hesitate in following his instruction.

"Got it Mr Stray Sir!" He shouted, before launching himself at the winged man with a vicious clawed kick.

"Good, I'm glad to hear that." Jeremy said, sighing at Sullivans words. "Now look, I'm not saying you have to be a hero, it's not for everyone, I get that. What I am saying though is that if you don't want to kill anyone, you don't want to become villains. In the end, no matter what your intentions are, something will go wrong, and someone will end up dying. Might be one of you, might be your opponents, or it might just be some random bystander in the wrong place at the wrong time. Better to just find a normal civillian job where you can put your powers to use than take that risk, don't you think?"

He chuckled when Ricky compared them to the robot cops, calling heroes lame for being outshone by them.

"It's true, those robot cops are impressive. Hell, some of my best friends have been robots! But in the end, which of us looks better to the public isn't what being a hero is really about. Hopefully you'll come to realise that some day."

It was at that point that he heard Riley's question, and promptly laughed it off.

"What, me? No way! I'm just an old school teacher, it's not exactly the kind of profession where I'd ever need to kill anyone. Considered it, naturally, but never gone through with it!"

He looked back again when Principal Lee returned, explained the plan, and asked him to go with her. He nodded, but quickly glanced back to Graham, a look of concern breifly flashing across his face. Noticing the expression, Graham grinned back widely, giving the old man a thumbs up.

"Don't worry Mr Stray, I'll be fine on my own! I won't get too distracted by the bouncy castle, promise!"

Jeremy hesitated for a moment, before sighing again, although a tired smile was plainly obvious on his face.

"If you say so..." He said. "Get out there and show 'em what you've got."

Once they made it to the courtyard, Graham turned to Lucas, having noticed the principals attempt at stealth before they left.

"Ok boss, what's the plan?" He asked, practically bouncing on the spot at the idea of messing around with all this new equipment. To the others, it might almost have seemed like a puppy who had just noticed his owner had brought a new toy home.

Meanwhile, Jeremy followed Lee back to the front of the school.

"Well, it went alright. The lead on the fragment turned out to be a bust, but I managed to find a few new kids, like you saw. The one I had with me today, Graham, is the oldest, but there are four younger ones too. The oldest three are seventeen, fifteen and twelve, so I'm hoping we can enroll them here so they can get used to using their powers more responsibly. They've got plenty of experience with them already, so it shouldn't be too difficult, but I just wanna make sure. The youngest is only six though, so while I still want to have her enroll eventually, I doubt she'll be starting classes for a while. I want to keep her here anyway though, if only so she won't need to be seperated from her siblings too long. Doing that would only make things harder on her. And of course, I'll be glad to get back to teaching again. Looks like you need all the help you can get."

He cocked his head to the side at the mention of someone wanting to see him, before looking up to see the approaching figure. Of course, he'd been keeping tabs on Castleburg and the old crew as much as possible, so he already recognised the armour before the figure had even landed. He still had the strong urge to pretend he had no idea who she was for a moment, just for old times sake, but figured she was both clever enough and had heard too many stories from Tom and Grace to fall for it. Besides, she'd been one of his best students back when she still attended the academy, so he figured she'd earned a pass from that particular joke.

"Jen!" He said, returning the hug. "Good to see you too, it's been a while! Glad to hear the rest are doing alright as well. Kinda wish they'd come too of course, but it's fine, I'll just hunt them all down next time I leave, especially your brother. And yeah, the trip was good! Wandered around the country, hiking and camping all over the place. Getting in tune with nature like that really helps clear up the stress, you know? Shook some of the rust off these old joints of mine too."

"Lame huh?" Jeremy asked, taking a moment to look over the kids. "Well, you might be right about that. I am just some strange old man Principal Lee called in hoping I'd preach to you about the virtues of heroism and all that, so I can see why you'd think that. Of course, I can think of lamer things in the world. Things like, say, thinking smoking and drinking makes you look cool, when really it just makes you look like you're trying far too hard."

He shrugged his shoulders.

"Of course, if you're ok with looking like me by the time you're fifty, drink away! I'd be glad to have the company!"

"O-ooooh, what? Nooo, don't say that, you don-... you don't look that old Mr Stray..."

"You know Gray, I'm glad you're trying to lie about it for me, but the fact that you're having such a hard time with it really just makes it worse."

"Really? I see... Interesting..." Grayham said, pulling a notepad out of his bag and writing the words LYING = BAD, circling it a few times to make sure he wouldn't miss it next time. He sent Jeremy a thumbs up when he finished, and the old man turned back to the four kids in the bubble.

"Anyway, while I know you probably won't care about anything I can really say, there are a couple of questions I'd like to ask you all. The first is whether or not you've ever killed someone before? Murdered a person in cold blood? And if the answer to that one is no, do you want to?"
Hey, good to see you! Sucks that you were sick, but I’m glad to hear you’re doing better again!

Chatak decided to ignore the fact that the older goblin had fallen asleep during their conversation. He seemed to be fairly old, possibly even in his late teens, so he deserved at least some sort leniency just for making it that long. Though of course, he also didn't intervene when Shaktak woke him up and made him get to the actual point.

He didn't let it show on his face, but he was legitimately surprised with how much he was being offered. He hadn't been expecting much, especially considering they were talking about goblins here, but it looked like working with the witch had allowed them to learn a great deal more than they could have before. And all this potential was being used for war.

What a damn waste.

Still, here he had the opportunity to help correct that mistake. He wasn't going to let it pass him by.

["Yes, of course! I'm very grateful for such a generous offer."] He said, nodding with a smile. ["However, I do need to ask one thing. If they decide they'd rather stay with us in our village, would you allow them to do so? We will, of course, provide the appropriate funds to hire them properly in this scenario, but I would like to make sure it would be alright first."]

Fallen? With the way his character had been developing by the time it died, I would’ve assumed he was basically All Might/Captain America by now! He should be more popular than ever!
