I woke up the next morning, still in a crappy mood. I knew that mood would only get worse once I saw that Rita girl again in Astronomy. I groggily showered and did my other morning rituals, after which I noticed that Squall was the only other one awake.
He was working on his computer and seemed pretty intent, so I decided not to bother him. I, of all people, know the value of some good alone time.
I checked my clock and saw I had a good amount of time to spare. So I figured now would be a good time to set up my vocal booth and get some lines done for a few voice acting projects I'd been commissioned for. Yeah, not the best idea. See, while the booth itself reduces echoes remarkably, it's still far from soundproof. And this is all too evident when, at 7 in the morning, while almost everyone else is asleep, I record my lines for a flash game.

Long story short, I took a nap, got woken up violently by Zidane, then groggily followed he and Bartz to the party central. I really need some Zidane-proof locks on my door. Like 10 of them. Booby trapped.
After a few trips through some transporter pads (not a good idea when you're half asleep) I stumbled out into what I could only assume was another dorm room. Only this one was big. I mean huge. There were plenty of people there, but also plenty of room to move around and not too loud.
"Wow, I'm actually impressed." I said, turning my head to the side only to find that Bartz and Zidane were already gone. "Shoulda guessed."
So I decided I would make my rounds of the party and check everything out. I really don't like parties, but I figured since I was here, I might as well try and enjoy myself. So I walked around, taking everything

Walking towards the pavilion, wondering what kind of awesome weapon I'd get, a new voice rang out off to the side.
"Zidane! Hey Zidane! Heeeyyyy!"
What I thought was an overly energetic fangirl of Zidane's turned out to be an overly energetic little kid running towards us.
"Not this brat again." he sighed.
"What do you mean?" I asked.
"You'll see." he said grimly.
As the kid came skidding to a halt in front of us, I got the idea.
"Hey Zidane! Hey Tidus! Hey Firion! How was your summer? Did you do a lot of fighting? I did. It was awesome! I fought with
my friends and we went on a big adventure. You should have been there! We got to explore caves, fight monsters, and even fly an
"Get it now?" Zidane asked.
The kid just kept talking. I could swear he didn't even t

The next day was the last day before classes, so I decided to explore the campus some more. I found out Tidus was living only a few rooms down from me, so we decided to go exploring together.
"Hey, before we go, would it be cool if I brought a friend along?" asked Tidus "He's new too."
I was a little wary, especially considering how... let's just say "unusual", a lot of the people here are. But it's not like they're bad people, they're all pretty cool in their own way.
"Alright, sounds cool."
Tidus then went back to his room and within a few seconds emerged with a young man who looked about my age. Keeping with the apparent tradition of unusual appearances, he had white hair mostly wrapped up in a bandanna but with a few spikes of hair sticking out.
Honestly, had he been the first person I'd seen, I'd probably be a little surprised. But considering the other stuff I've seen around her

"What's the matter Con? Speechless?" said Zidane with a smirk
And he was right. The sight I beheld completely silenced me. I could just stare ahead, jaw slack and eyes unblinking.
A wide open field filled with students. To the right, people were shooting off chunks of ice from their palms. To the left, columns of fire. Off in the distance, intense bolts of lightning were striking targets with perfect precision. It was magic. There was no other explanation.
"What's the big deal?" said Tidus in a clueless voice
Zidane nudged him a little and whispered "Real world."
"Ohhhhhhhhhh." said Tidus. Apparently everyone here knew about the real world while nobody in the real world knows about this place. Though I kind of feel like they're treating me like I'm a "special" person.
"How... how is this even possible?!"
