“You listen to my lectures every day! They’ve got another teacher doing a talk, maybe she’ll have more luck than I have.”
You force your way into the packed classroom and squeeze into a seat in the back row.
Keine hasn’t appeared yet, at least! You hope she’s not teaching today. Her last lecture on ethics really hurt your head.
Just then, the green-haired youkai that’s always sweeping up in front of the temple walks in the door. She cups her hands around her mouth.
The windows rattle, and the other kids stop talking to cover their ears.
Keine’s lecture was still worse.
“Hijiri is giving a lecture personally to the older children, so she had me come here.” She says, twiddling her thumbs. Clearing clears her throat, she begins speaking in a perfect copy of the monk’s voice.
--WAH WAAAAH WAH WAHWAH WAHH WAAH WAH WAH WAH--
You yawn as she drones on and on about youkai and humans and something.
Hey, isn’t that Rumia? Why is she in the school? Keine threw her out last time she tried. Right through the wall.
She seems really focused on the lecture this time, though. You listen in. “...temple fully endorses interspecies relationships and marriages...”
Interwhatsitses? You tune out again. Oh, now she’s blushing. When the lecture mentions “half-youkai” she jumps a little.
It’s really boring...
[ ] Throw an eraser at Rumia
[ ] Keep watching her
>>145594 I was quoting him in response to >>145590 that it might actually have been a reference and not just a simple statement. Yes, I could have constructed my post so much better than I did to get my intentions across, but when answering the phone my divided attention erased what I had in mind and I ended up submitting a quick, half-assed reply. Being on my laptop at the time didn't help, either.
>>145623 Sometimes, an emoticon is the most efficient way to express a thought. Like this time.
If you really want discussion, making a story that isn't a sequence of unrelated setpieces might be a good idea. I love Holidanon, but it's kinda hard to discuss anything when nothing is predictable.
“Your lack of refinement the Underground look civilized. You need to learn how to appreciate art!”
What about the wood carvings she was studying last n--
“Not that kind of art!” she shouts, cheeks pink.
The desks are spread out, with paintings on painting-stands in front of them.
It smells like pine trees~
It’s the pajama wizard!
“Your assessment is entirely correct, while at the same time lacking everything a proper greeting should have. Simply amazing.”
“At least stop reading while you criticize them,” the red she-devil says, over her shoulder.
“The blow to their confidence will be at least twice as strong if you give them your undivided attention,” the snappily-dressed devil man quips, from the other side.
“You really shouldn’t be giving that kind of criticism to middle schoolers, miss Knowledge.”
It’s an ordinary, unremarkable highschooler!
“Yes, yes. Please take your seat, Jin.”
“My name’s not-”
“Class is starting!” She-devil chimes!
With a skip, she’s standing on a soapbox in the center of class.
“Today, we’ll be doing model paintings, so look at me closely!”
With a theatrical sweep of her arm, her vest is already off, and her shirt is down two buttons!
Could this be a new record!?
Pajama gives her a sharp glare, and she freezes. She sends an appealing look to her ally, the devil man!
He shrugs helplessly.
“Awwww. Fiiiine.” She redresses. The entire class joins her in a disappointed sigh.
The wizard reads in the corner, the devils both vanish toward the restroom, and the students placidly paint pictures of mundane apples and vazses. Jin keeps glancing at the teacher instead of his subject.
The devil woman comes back with messy hair, followed by the other devil and... a fairy maid?
Aren’t they students?
beep beep beep beep beep
“Class dismissed,” your “teacher” says.
Now that that class is done, which one comes next?
Wait! That’s not right! What were you thinking!"
Schools blackest of temptations had nearly caught hold of you! You must remain strong!
If he did, I would be much happier myself. This story itself was kinda salt-in-the-wound, and the mention of Jin (out of all the names with the exact same meaning) was kinda the straw that will break the camels back.
Besides. Only an update a day at the very least for such short updates? pffft.
You're both retarded and need to shut up. Holiday anon's ventures are a long-standing tradition, and it's always featured various references to other stories. That this particular update, in a school setting, has a single reference to Jin and Taisa's story isn't a cue for the buttdevastated faggot brigade to start whining about it.
