Camilla Baird
Me! Me! Me!

Ancient Runes was one of Camilla’s favorite classes. Camilla didn't know exactly why she enjoyed it so much, but there was something absolutely fascinating about the root of magic and the mysticism that surrounded it. The Cetus found that the less physical class always helped her relax and Professor Wilson was an excellent source of knowledge, and Camilla usually sought her out of class for questions. The seventh-year was sort of fond of the Professor and also enjoyed Arithmancy, though Ancient Runes won by far.

Camilla was proud of her academic achievements, especially in Spellwork. The Cetus was rarely had problems when it came to school, but she could also be a little bit lazy, which was why she had dropped History of Magic, MagiSci, and Potions. Those classes had never peeked her interest enough to continue. Besides, her career of choice had nothing to do with her magical instruction. No, Camilla had it on very good authority that she had been accepted to Harvard´s Magical Law program. She was excited, but nothing was official so she hadn't really shared it with anyone yet. Not even Elijah. She didn't want to be disappointed later.

The blonde entered the classroom, greeted Professor Wilson and sat down in huff. She was a bit tired from lack of sleep. However, she had imbibed copious amounts of coffee before arriving to help her sail through the class without a hinge. Camilla took her class material out and settled into her seat while listening to Professor Wilson start the class. The Cetus took some notes here and there. It was an exciting assignment! And she already had an idea of what she wanted to implement. The blonde had begun having trouble sleeping, and her roommate didn't help much. Maybe if she charmed some runes to create a silence bubble around her bed? Yes, it seemed like a doable thing.

Camilla silently clapped excitedly by this new plan and opened her book to begin researching the runes and spell she needed to make this happen. She started taking some notes and making some diagrams on her notebook. The concentration on her present activity was obvious that everything around her disappeared, even that good for nothing Psycho Bitch that had come to poke a hole on her zen class. No, she could be the bigger person and ignore her obviously toxic presence.

The Cetus cracked her knuckles and accidentally pushed her makeup bag to the floor. It made a loud clank as it hit and she grumbled in annoyance. Camilla bended to pick it up and realized she had a neighbor for the first time, “You,” she said in a tone mixed with annoyance, but maybe excitement?

    Once a week, Arianna and Patrick took their lunch breaks together. Having just returned from their weekly lunch date, the brunette witch was in a good mood. Her husband had picked a modern Japanese... more
    • Me! Me! Me! - Camilla Baird, Thu Oct 5 17:44
      • You! You! You! - Ruben Lundqvist, Thu Oct 5 20:30
        “Me,” Ruben returned, smirking broadly, pleased at how quickly he had reacted to the sound hitting the floor. Not pleased in a surprised way, obviously, because he had superior reflexes, but still... more
        • Im glad you agree - Camilla , Fri Oct 6 14:51
          The whole school knew Camilla was not a fan of Ruben. In fact, the blonde was a bit scared of the younger Swede, she really wanted to see him thoroughly and completely embarrassed, especially if it... more
          • Oh, I can never agree with you - Ruben, Wed Oct 11 21:49
            He sighed exaggeratedly when Camilla went around his foot to take her bag back, but didn’t fight it. Riling people up was fun, but he wasn’t in the mood to get kicked out of class, which might happen ... more
            • You just did.... - Camilla, Sun Oct 15 02:59
              The Cetus rolled her eyes in annoyance at Ruben. How could someone be so damn self centered? Camilla honestly couldn't understand how Ruben managed to like himself? She wondered if he saw his... more
              • Hah, nope. Good try. - Ruben, Sun Oct 15 21:28
                Camilla’s reaction did not even make it on the list of possibilities Ruben had expected. Baffled, he glanced over at the maniacally laughing girl, one thick eyebrow arched (which was in equal parts... more
                • Well, I tried... - Camilla, Wed Oct 18 00:41
                  The blonde seventh-year raised an eyebrow at Ruben. Was he for real? He definitely wasn't. Camilla took a deep breathe to calm her rising temper as the amusement faded away with each word that came... more
                  • Wrong direction - Ruben, Fri Oct 20 22:49
                    “I will have you know,” Ruben informed her, taking on an aloof tone, “that I keep my gym bag in very good condition.” This was actually true. He used it for everything - actual gym clothes and his... more
                    • Maybe its the right one - Camilla, Sat Oct 21 16:12
                      It was all fun and games until someone got hurt. One second Camilla was laughing as Ruben fell to the floor with a loud crash and the next second she tumbled, without any sign or warning, on top of... more
                      • Maybe you're delusional! - Ruben, Thu Oct 26 15:42
                        Okay, so he hadn’t managed to Vanish her whole chair. That was annoying. Especially because Camilla was laughing at him and for that she absolutely deserved to be taken down a peg (or chair).... more
                        • I'm a bit crazy, yes - Camilla, Sun Oct 29 23:51
                          A what a rude little pussball. The blonde quickly retracted her foot as the WHOLE LOT of weight of Ruben “accidentally” came crushing down her foot. What was his problem? Apparently his lack of humor ... more
    • I'm not sure about lucky, but my charms are good - Rose Farnon, Sat Sep 30 11:21
      Rose knew that her friends wondered - sometimes aloud - how she managed to keep up with her schedule. It was, admittedly, demanding; between her job on Pearl Street and her Quidditch (complete with... more
      • Then I’ll provide the luck - Holland Keene, Sun Oct 1 01:41
        Usually, Professor Wilson’s classes were a break from practical work. Casting spells in Ancient Runes was unusual, but Holland had brought their wand; regardless of how well their wandless magic was... more
        • Go team! - Rose, Tue Oct 17 12:12
          It was Holland, thankfully. “I haven’t decided yet,” Rose admitted, closing the book and then opening it again at another random page. Shield charms. Uninspired - that’s what they’d been talking... more
          • Teamwork makes the dream work - Holland, Sat Oct 21 21:56
            Rose answered Holland’s question with a question. Fortunately, it was quite easy to distract Holland Keene with interesting, semi-academic questions. “Depending on the spell, an area of effect would... more
            • Living the dream - Rose, Fri Nov 3 10:05
              If there was one thing about Holland Keene, Rose thought, it was that it was very easy to distract them with a question. In general, Holland seemed like the kind of person who thought a lot. Not... more
              • This is the life - Holland, Fri Nov 3 22:43
                Rose cited having brothers as the reason for wanting a muffling charm on her door. “Wouldn’t know,” Holland said, gesturing at themself. In general, they liked being an only child. It would change... more
                • Life is for the living - Rose, Sat Nov 4 16:03
                  In general, Rose was used to spending a lot of time being right. Some things came very naturally to her and some things she spent a lot of time learning, but in general, Rose tended to be right an... more
                  • L’Chaim - Holland, Tue Nov 7 20:46
                    Rose could be abrupt, especially if she got distracted by schoolwork—Holland was fairly certain Rose was the smartest of their friend group, at least in terms of academics (she scored lower on... more
                    • Ul'shalom - Rose, Sat Nov 11 12:38
                      Rose made a face at her paper when Holland described Dade as conservative. She thought that was unfair. Connor was definitely conservative (she was 99% sure he disapproved of Dade’s friend Remington... more
