It was a dark and stormy night...

That's how these sort of things are supposed to begin, aren't they? The scene is set with a grey and sorrowful sky, without a single patch of blue shining through the clouds. The air is chilled, and goosebumps run up and down the skin of our protagonist. Perhaps there is a flash of lightning, a witch's chuckle, the scream of a cat--anything to set the mood, of course? Now, perhaps we want to be original. Perhaps we open with...

It was a gorgeous day, with the sun shining and the birds singing, but then the murders began...

But that isn't quite right either, now is it? Which is better: the acknowledged cliché or the desperate attempt to reverse it, to come up with its exact opposite, yet produce something just as cheesy in the end? Will either of them truly cause a heart to falter these days? Which one whispers of gore and horror, of unknown secrets and mysteries waiting behind a closed curtain?

Does it even matter, though, whether or not you feel fear? For this story may just be a myth, or perhaps, perhaps it is true. Perhaps blood will have blood. Perhaps more will perish than survive. Perhaps, just perhaps...Perhaps this will be a story that no one dares to repeat. But do our protagonists care if fear is inspired from their story? Personally, I think they are more concerned with surviving.

The cliché it is then. Now, let us begin...

It was a dark and stormy night at the Alucard Institute for Peculiar Youth, nicknamed simply the Institute. The school's headmaster, Faust as he was called, stood at the window with an eerie smile on his face. Thirty students had been invited to the Institute's first class, divided evenly among the three houses. Each house had its own wing of the institute, with five rooms for the students.

"And so it begins," Faust, though that was not his real name, whispered. Lightning, as if on cue, flashed in the sky, illuminating the children's faces. When darkness fell again, one face remained in the darkness. It was a young girl, with pale skin and blonde locks, a flame illuminating her path. Yet she carried no torch, instead carrying an orb of fire in the palm of her hand.

October Crypt, of course, couldn't help but enjoy the atmosphere. With the flashes of lightning and the gloomy sky, it reminded her of her uncle's home. She grinned slightly, looking at the other children. Beyond family members, she hadn't had too many encounters with other necromantic children. The rain was falling softly on them, and one boy wasn't being hit with a single drop. Another student had scaly skin, shifting colors like a kaleidoscope. The oddness was thrilling.

"You need a light?" October offered a girl next to her, her roommate in Absinthe house. She produced another ball of flame in her hands, grinning rather strangely, like the cat that ate the canary.

Carolina stood with the other students, she had waved goodbye to her sister awhile ago as she stood with the other children around her close to her age, some were younger while others were the same age. Her eyes wondered around the group of kids, noticing some of them had looked completely different, like they were out of some kind of weird movie. Noticing one kid appeared to have some kind of scaley like skin, which was weird to her, Carolina wasn't sure what this school exactly was for aside from helping people like her with certain abilities. She looked up at the sky as a thunderstorm went on overhead, but Carolina actually did not mind the dark and gloomy weather. She enjoyed the loud clash of thunder and the flash of lightening in the stormy night sky.

She ran a hand through her wet hair for a moment as Carolina turned her head to the girl that was standing next to her, her eyes wondering over towards the flame that she was holding in her hand. She noticed the girls blonde hair and pale colored skin, she then watched as another flame was produced in her hand. Carolina knew that her sister would have a field day trying to find out how that was actually possible. Luckily her sister just thought if was just a special boarding school for her to go to she gave October a soft smile but didn't dare try and touch the flame in her hand.

"Nah i'm good thank you though." Carolina said, her english accent coming through very noticibly with a soft smile as she looked around at the others. "I'm Carolina by the way." She said as she held a hand out to her roommate giving her a soft smile.

October chuckled for a moment, having each hand holding ball of fire. She closed her hand ever so slightly, the orb going away, before lightly shaking Carolina's hand. Her own hands always ran incredibly hot, due to her deviance. It was what gave her so much trouble when she was younger, what with the flames coming so easily, and being so incredibly hard to deal with. She noted her roommate's accent, and couldn't help but wonder what brought a Brit to America.

"October," she introduced herself. The girl seemed to be incredibly shy from what she could tell, but October felt confident she'd drag out the girl's personality in no time. As her uncle Sylvester always said, no one actually has the personality of a corpse until you smash their brains in with a bat. And of course, even if quietness was all there was to the girl, the quiet ones always ended up being the most horrifically amazing.

By then, the group of children had arrived at the steps of the Institute, with the headmaster and three others standing on the porch, illuminated by the porch lights. October felt almost disappointed at the lack of need for her flame and extinguished it, feeling the smoke move through her fingers for a moment. Her roommate, from what she could tell, didn't have an obvious deviance--which only made her more curious as to what it was.

"Welcome to the Alucard Institute for Peculiar Youth, I am Headmaster Faust," the tallest of the men on the porch said, taking a slight bow. "You have all been assigned rooms in the wings of the Institute, corresponding to your houses and gender. Please do take a few hours to settle in, and join us in the entrance way at the stroke of midnight."

Thunder boomed, followed up quickly with a lightning strike. October felt almost giddy, enjoying the cliché of the terrifying aesthetic. The prospect of some sort of gathering at midnight, the witching hour, intrigued her as well. Having never had a formal education, she couldn't help but be clueless as to what a school might entail. But at any rate, midnight didn't seem to be the typical hour for classes.

"Any ideas what's that all about?" October whispered to Carolina, as the headmaster swept away, and the three others, revealed as 'teachers' at the Institute, began to escort the students to their rooms. "I always do love a good game of Wake the Dead...It is a good night for it."

Carolina instantly took note of the amount of heat the moment that October had shaken her hand, wincing slightly at the heat it didn't burn her skin, just felt a very intense heat coming from that handshake. October seemed to be a pretty unique name however, but then again so was hers, she was named after a month, while she herself was named after two states pretty much. "October is a pretty unique name." Carolina said with a soft smile, her attention quickly then turned towards Faust who announced his name to the other girls and boys that would become her new classmates. Carolina somehow got a very weird and creepy vibe from the headmaster, but she wasn't going to go out and voice it out loud to everyone else.

She also started to wonder why there would be a meeting in the institute's entrance way at midnight, Carolina turned her attention towards October. She was still a bit shy, but so far the girl next to her seemed to be a pretty cool person so far and wouldn't mind getting to know her a little bit more. A year or so ago Carolina would never have thought that things like ghosts and spirits were real but that seemed to change the moment her deviance appeared. Like the boy with the scaley skin that seemed to change constantly, her attention went back to October. "I'm not sure, i'd imagine it would be really late for classes to start tonight." She answered with a slight shrug.

"So talking to the dead is a real thing really?" Carolina asked looking over at October, she was willing to believe in a lot of things now at this point, as she watched Faust heading back into the school. Along with the teachers, she watched the kids starting to make their way into the school as well. She was really eager to unpack all of her things and find out what would be going on at midnight.

October smiled a bit, thinking back about the comment on her name. She truthfully couldn't remember her parents' explanation for it herself, but her uncle had explained it to her a few months back. In hindsight, it had been remarkably simple to figure out. "Thanks. Middle name's Morning, since I was born on the Morning of October -- October first." Her name was a point of pride with her, of course. And to her, people should be proud of their names. They were a way of announcing one's intent to the world. "Why Carolina?" she then asked.

However, she then paused for a moment, recalling that Carolina had asked her an actual question, as to whether or not talking to the dead was possible. "Well, yes. Most of the time it feels more like the dead are talking at you, hard to get a word in. They're terribly chatty, can't ever seem to shut up." She snickered a little bit, remembering the few times she had gone to visit the spirits of her parents.

"You're new to all of this, then," October observed as they were led inside the Institute and into the East Wing, where the Absinthe students were housed. A spiral staircase led to the rooms, and once they hit the fourth floor, a room with a grim plaque was labeled OCTOBER & CAROLINA. It had a simple lock on it, with the keys having already been distributed to the students earlier upon arrival. Pulling out her key, October unlocked the room, revealing something that could only be described as a Victorian motel room. There was a dingy window on one side, flanked by two four poster beds. Each student had a dresser and a desk as well.

"What's your deviance, by the way?" October mused, once she had shut the door behind Carolina. "Whatever we're doing at the witching hour tonight, I imagine there'll be some use for it. That's the point of the Institute, isn't it?"

Carolina gave a slight shrug as to why her parents gave her that name. "I guess they wanted to have a pretty and unique name, my middle name is Regina from my great grandmother though." She said, as October also told her middle name which was Morning, to her it seemed a little bit weird to have a middle name like that. But when she explained why it was Morning she understood then it that her first and middle names were related to when she was born. "That's also a pretty interesting middle name." She then started to follow along with October towards the school and started following along with the other students in House Absinthe.

Once they were at their room Carolina looked at the plaque that was just outside their door with their names on it, she slowly ran her hand along the plaque before attempting to reach for her key just as October reached for it and opened the door for them. She went in right behind her roommate and looked around the room, it was big enough for two people. "Well it certainly fits the feel of the house itself." She said softly to herself as she made her way towards her bed, and then set her backpack on there.

"Yep i'm still adjusting to everything, it happened about six or so months ago when it started to happen." Carolina said and then she gave October a slight smile when her roommate asked what her what her Deviance was. "I'll show you." She wasn't really good at explaining things but she was good with showing, Carolina made her way towards her bed and sat down onto it. Carolina took a deep breath and then her eyes started to roll to the back of her head, then her body suddenly went limp onto the bed looking very lifeless but still breathing.

Carolina looked down at her body, it always felt weird leaving her body like that suddenly she then looked over at October and made her way towards one of the light switches and the lights started flickering on and off curious to see her reaction was.

Having seen a lifetime's worth of peculiar things, it would've made sense if October hardly reacted at her roommate's demonstration. But the notoriety either hadn't worn off, or she took such a genuine interest--more likely the later--that she paid close attention as Carolina's eyes rolled backwards, and the girl collapsed on the bed. Had she not been able to see her roommate breathe, she would have hypothesized that her deviance was turning into a corpse.

"Descensum?" October guessed. It was a rare power, one that only the most advanced witches generally were able to accomplish. It allowed someone to plunge their soul into hell, all of their own volition, and then return to tell the tale.

But as the lights started to flicker on and off, October grinned a bit in realization. "You're a soul walker, then?" she inquired. It was an old fashioned term for those who practiced astral projection, and October looked excited at the prospect. The girl was enchanted by all things weird. "I don't suppose you can communicate with me beyond anything a ghost can do? Though I'm not terribly familiar with soul walkers..."

She placed her bag on her own bed, noting that her suitcase filled with clothing and other belongings had already been placed underneath it. The Institute was efficient, to say the very least. She couldn't help but ponder how they had brought all of their belongings inside so quickly, but the Institute was filled with necromantic individuals. The impossible was a reality, it was par for the course.

Carolina grinned slightly as she stopped flickering the lights on and off, she moved about the room freely remembering the first time that it happened, she was having a deep sleep and then it started to feel weird as she did see her body laying there. "I guess you could call it that then." Carolina said, though she wasn't sure if October could actually hear her voice she never did tell her sister about it or any of her normal friends. Though Carolina couldn't resist doing a little prank with her sister every now and then, either flickering the lights or opening and closing the door seeing her reaction was always so entertaining to witness.

She then moved back towards her body, as her soul returned to her body, Carolina opened her eyes once more and slowly sat up looking over at her roommate giving her a soft smile. "Sometimes it just sort of happens on its own if I end up having a really good sleep I sort of just wonder around sometimes. Or I also like to just freak my sister out with it making her think that the place is haunted." She then stood up and made her way towards her dresser, and opened it seeing that her clothes had already been set up and folded neatly. "What time is it now anyway?"

October blinked her eyes and opened them again, attempting to spot Carolina. The more she concentrated, the more aware she became of her roommate, hearing her brush up against things and so forth. She couldn't see her however, no matter how much she focused her eyes, and attempted to see past reality. It wasn't her deviance, and she had no formal training in witchcraft. There was no shame in it, essentially.

"I imagine it's possible for you to appear eventually," October mused, glancing as her roommate appeared to return to her body, smiling widely at her. She was enchanted by madness and insanity, by the impossible becoming a reality. Among those like her, October instantly became more comfortable and more open, though she still had her secrets. She still had her darkness, hidden behind the brightness of her flame.

October snickered a bit. "Your sister, then, she's normal, I presume," she observed. "Spirits are much easier to view, in my experience. They go a bit batty after existing on this plane longer than would be advised..." Her voice trailed off slightly. Her parents' spirits had gone vengeful a few months or so ago, and were quickly taken care of by a hunter. It was a bit of a touchy subject.

"It's nearly the witching hour," October replied, glancing outside the window. "Quarter till, I'd imagine."

Carolina gave October a slight smile as she ran her hand through her hair as she went back to sitting down on her bed, and gave her roommate a friendly nod. "Yes, as far as I know my sister is normal." She answered, Carolina started to open up a little bit more towards her roommate she was shy at times when meeting new people but now that she had something in common with her. It was a lot easier for her to get to know one another, Carolina started to turn towards her backpack and pulled out some of her things, like her laptop. She was pretty attached to it and was almost always on it a lot of the time.

She turned over to look at October mentioning her interactions with spirits, she was intrigued with actually trying to communicate with the dead. "So how hard is it to talk to the dead?" Carolina asked as she looked around for an outlet to plug the laptop in, while occasionally looking over at October. It seemed that they did have a little bit of time to kill before they all had to go and meet Faust and the other students down at the foyer of the Institute.

October paused for a moment, mulling over the question. Truthfully she never had had much difficulty getting the dead to talk to her--shutting them up, as she had mentioned earlier, tended to be more of an issue. Yet for those new to this world, she could understand that perhaps it was all a little bit bizarre, a little bit bewildering. An almost wicked and yet somehow innocent grin appeared on her face, as she grabbed one of the candles in the room, lighting it with her finger.

"We can always try a seance now, if you'd like," October offered. "I've never done one on my own, admittedly...But I've seen it done several times and have participated." Of course, she didn't have the skill set needed for a proper seance. It would be a bit like someone learning to drive for the first time, after having watched people drive all their life--hard and difficult, but enticing at the same time. Of course, none of that was mentioned to Carolina.

"It can't be too difficult, and the night is hauntingly beautiful," October continued. "But mostly, communing with spirits is rather similar to what you see on television and the likes. Join hands, light a candle for dramatic effect, ask if anyone is with us..."

They did have fifteen minutes or so to kill, after all.

Carolina looked at October and gave her a slight smile and a nod, it would be interesting she had never done anything like that before or talking with the dead. "Sure why not, it probably wont take that long right?" Carolina asked as she watched her roommate light a candle in her hand giving off a small eerie feel. She had seen a lot of horror movies that seemed to be pretty easy and straightforward when it came to that, as she looked around the room for a moment. Carolina went over and sat down in the middle of the room between the two of their beds and looked up at her roommate.

They had fifteen minutes to kill before they all had to leave their rooms, she ran a hand through her hair as she started to wonder more about what else the school would end up teaching them. "So, other then having us learn to control our Deviances what else do you think this place will be teaching us, also what is your family like can they do what you can as well?" She asked making some small conversation.

October had set the candle down on the floor, murmuring what she could remember of the Latin as she walked in a circle around Carolina. There was something about cardinal directions, she recalled, as well as requests for protection. But whether or not she accomplished things properly, she wasn't quite certain. It'd be an experiment, a test of her ability to remember the words her uncle said during a seance.

"There, that ought to do it," October beamed, before sitting across from her roommate, the candle in between them. "I'm not quite sure, to be honest...And there aren't any in my family quite like me, as far as I'm aware. No normals, but most of them are some flavor of witch or murderer." She seemed to not be fazed by her words at all, taking Carolina's hands, before glancing upward.

"We call upon any spirits present...Make yourself known to us...We call upon any spirits present...Make yourself known to us..." she said softly, repeating the words over and over again. A chill crept over the room, as frost appeared on the floors, traveling towards the candle in the middle. The flame of the candle sputtered out.

"Spirit, make yourself known to us," October commanded, without the slightest hint of fear. "Whether you are friend or foe, make yourself known."

The temperature of the room dropped again, as the frost line continued to snake around. In a few minutes, it became evident that it was not random. Letters began to take form, becoming clearer and clearer as the minutes past. October watched in confusion, until the writing ceased. It wasn't just letters, to be clear--there were numbers as well.

"Judgment Day," October read, looking at the words. "1 of 66." Glancing up at Carolina, she noticed the temperature of the room return to normal. The girl was confused, to say the very least, but thirteen minutes had already past. They would need to hurry down to the foyer to meet the others.

Carolina watched and listened to October as she muttered something, though she couldn't really hear anything and assumed that she was rememorizing what to say and do during a séance before sitting directly across from her. "So sort of like Harry Potter Witches or something?" She said jokingly lightly, then she shuddered slightly hearing that some of October's family members were possibly murderers. She felt October grabbing her hands once more feeling the girl's hot hands in her own.

Carolina closed her eyes and took a deep breath as she started to slowly relax herself, and then started to join in with October as well. "We call upon any spirits present...Make yourself known to us...We call upon any spirits present...Make yourself known to us..." Though to her it felt slightly weird just saying it trying to summon some kind of spirit into the room just by talking to the air. Then she started to feel the temperature within the room suddenly dropping, Carolina stopped with the chanting as her attention went to their surroundings.

As the temperature dropped even further her eyes wondered down to the candle as it flickered out from the cool air around it, and looked down at the floor before them as frost started to form over the floor. Seeing the words Judgment Day as well as the number 66 formed on the floor. Carolina looked up at October with a confused look as well wondering what exactly was the meaning for it, she quickly released October's hand feeling uncomfortable at the words.

"OOokay that's a bit weird." She said looking over at her roommate, thinking that it would be best now for them to go on and meet the others in the foyer. "Lets head down there before we are late." She said looking at her phone clock before standing up and offered her hand to October to help her up.

October seemed almost disappointed at the prospect of having to leave the room. It was evident that she was interested and fascinated by the occurrence. She had never seen something quite like that in a seance before--usually, the spirits inhabited one participant as a mouthpiece of sorts. But the frost on the ground? That was something entirely new. "One moment, spirits don't take too kindly to others reading their communications." She then held her hands over the frost, just close enough that as she set them aflame, the heat melted the message away--but not close enough to set the wood ablaze and burn the Institute down.

Once her hand was no longer engulfed in flames, she took Carolina's offer and rose to her feet. Rolling her wrists a bit, her wrists cracked, and she smiled a bit. It always was a small way of relieving a bit of tension, and her joints tended to feel much better directly afterwards. "What's your family like, then?" October inquired, as they headed down the spiral staircase, and into the foyer of the Institute.

Most everyone was there, though one boy jumped from the top of the staircase, only to glide down, as if he was holding onto a hundred balloons to keep himself partially afloat. When he reached the bottom, his feet never quite did touch the ground, always hovering by at least a few inches. There was another student standing next to them, their face entirely concealed with glasses, bandages, and a mask.

"It seems none of you have perished yet--very good," Faust observed, standing in front of the door. "You will all work in pairs tonight. Your objective? In the nearby town of Saranac Lake, I have hidden an item of great importance. Retrieve it by any means necessary."

Carolina watched as October ran her flaming hand over the frozen message that the spirits had written on the floor before them, it was still slightly creepy to witness that. She at first was half expecting it to not even work, like some old horror movie, but after witnessing and seeing other kids just like her and her roommate it seemed things like spirits were an actual thing. Carolina gave October a soft smile when she took her hand, still feeling the heat as she helped her up she started to make her way down the spiral staircase when October asked about her family and what they were like.

"Well my sister is like a super genius, right now she goes to MIT she also seems to be working with the government on some stuff but I dunno what exactly it is. My mom and dad, and brother are living back in London sadly they are barely scratching by that's why my sister offered to let me move in with her in the States." She said as she made her way to the bottom of the stairs, Carolina looked up at the stairs seeing one boy jumping off the ledge and floated down ever so slightly. It was amazing to watch as the kid made it down safely to the ground, then turned her attention back to October. "And I also have two distant cousins, one is a singer and the other as far as I know is in jail or something. I don't talk to them that much though since one of them is pretty much world famous and the other I don't even know how to reach."

Carolina quickly turned her attention towards Faust the headmaster standing in front of them by the front door, she raised an eyebrow as he spoke to them and told them that they were out looking for some kind of object that was important and that it was in the nearby town. Carolina started to wonder what exactly it was that they would be searching for, before raising her hand. "What is it exactly that we are looking for and whats important about it?" Carolina asked him.

October nodded, a bit impressed with Carolina's family connections. Having a cousin in jail always seemed to be a benefit to any family, from her observations, and she grew perhaps a bit more hopeful that Carolina hadn't been entirely dulled down by the normals. She continued to muse upon this line of thought as Carolina rose her hand, addressing the headmaster, Faust, about what object in particular they were searching for.

"You'll know it when you find it," Faust assured them. "3...2...1...Begin!" He clapped his hands, seemingly for dramatic effect. No one moved a muscle. Frowning, Faust began to make shooing motions. "Go!" A bunch of the students, as if they had received a shock, paired up and practically ran from the school. October, instead, looked over at her roommate and smiled.

"Come on. We'll make a smashing pair, I bet."

Carolina looked at Headmaster Faust crossing her arms over her chest when he said they will know it when they see it, that certainly was descriptive. It would make things so much easier to know what it was they were looking for, for all she knew it could have been some kind of sex toy that they were asked to look for him. Then the man waved the kids off to go and search, Carolina looked over at October for a moment when he told the other kids to go out and search. "I agree we'd make an awesome team together." Carolina said brightly as the others started flooding out of the front door.

Carolina waited until they were the last ones out, seeing some of the kids were struggling through the doors once they were out Carolina started to head out through the front door. They were out in the storm again as Carolina felt the rain hitting her skin, she looked over at October. "So any idea where town is from here?" Carolina asked as she walked making her way off of the institute grounds, she would turn back looking back at the school. It still looked really creepy to her in the distance with the stormy backdrop as well giving the place an eerie feel as well.

October left the Institute side-by-side with Carolina, holding her hand in front of her and creating a flame to light their path. It was just big enough to illuminate their surroundings, but not so hot as to give off an immense heat to Carolina. At the very most, it would be uncomfortable. And odd. Always odd. But there wasn't much she could do about that effect in particular. "I'm not sure," October admitted. "There are location spells, but I'm not a witch, really..."

Of course, Carolina did have a phone on her, but the notion to use an iPhone never would have occurred to October. She only owned an iPod shuffle for her music. Pulling her compass out of her purse, she nearly grabbed one of her knives, grimacing awkwardly. That wouldn't help matters very much. "If only I had a map, then we'd know which way to go...But for now, I suppose picking any direction will be decent, until we find some sort of signage."

The other children were out of sight by now. They had all split up in various directions, with no one quite certain as to where the town was. A few of them had pulled out their phones in an attempt to get directions, but signal was hard to come by near the Institute. There was something in the air, perhaps, that kept technology from properly functioning. But perhaps there'd be enough signal to get a general reference of the direction from the Institute to town--or at least, enough that a compass would work properly.

"Do you remember which way you came in?" October inquired. "Any chance you went by that town?"

Carolina felt the heat from October's flaming hand, grateful for the light that her roommate was giving her but the heat was getting slightly uncomfortable, but she kept it quiet it was tolerable for now. She watched the last of the kids simply disappearing into the woods and other surroundings. She decided to check her phone to get a possible location on where the town was, when she pulled it out and went to the Maps App there was no connection. She would let out a slightly annoyed groan since it wasn't working, and it was a new phone as well so it had to be the reception.

She did however remember that there was the main dirt road that her sister had taken her down. "I remember taking the dirt road, we did pass a town before heading up the dirt road. So maybe if we follow the main road it could take us back into town?" Carolina suggested as she ran a hand through her hair for a moment. She did have her license to drive however she never had the money to actually buy her own car, it would have made traveling so much easer. "So how did you end up discovering you Deviance for the first time?" She asked, they had sometime to kill awhile they made their way to the town, might as well use the time to know her roommate a bit better she thought.
